The folly of a third term movement in favor of President Cleveland is set forth in the utterances of Governor Campbell, of Ohio, given below, as reported by the Washington corres pondeut of the Baltimore Sun. The officeholders and others may want '?four more years of Grover,'1 but no one, however an enthusiastic admirer he may be of Mr. Cleveland, if at all conversant with the political events of to-day, can be so blind as not to have seen that there are hundreds of Democrats in every section of the country who would not vote for him for a second term even?and that to nominate him forauother term could mean nothing less than defeat to the Democratic party: ?'I understand, he said to a repre? sentative of the Sun, "there is a good deal of talk in Washington about a third term.

' accomac court-housk, Va. Saturday, November 30, 1895. Entered at the PostofHee at Accoruae o. H.. Va., as second-class matter. Governor O'Ferrall has given his views to the country on the Presi? dential question. Mr. Cleveland, in the opinion of our Chief Executive, is the man, who will be the nominee of the Democratic party next year for the Presidency and that, perhaps, settles it, so far as the State of Vir? ginia is concerned. The people of the Old Commonwealth in making him her Governor, of course gave him, in his own opinion, the right to speak for her in all things and no Virginian will of course, be so reck? less as to challenge his prophesy. They may not agree with a man,who knows it all as he does, but no one will of course, be so disrespectful, as to d iscredit the views of their politi? cal prophet. Mr. Cleveland is doubt less happier now that he has spoken, but it might be well for him to re? member, in counting his chances for the next Presidential nomination, that n...

fhinsuia {Enterprise. Accomac Coubt-House, Va. Saturday, January IS, 1890. Entered at the Postoffice at Accomac C. H., Va.. as second-class matter. The useless expenditure of money every live years in processioning the lands in the State of Virginia is being discussed in many sections of our county at this tune, and is well worth the attention of our Legislature. The expense incurred by the countv of Accomac last year forthat purpose being about $0,000. and in the State heing in the aggregate, perhaps, a hundred thousand dollars or more, it has occurred to many of our citi zens, that we could be relieved of the burden without material injury of anyone. They say, and we agree with them, that if the necessity for processioning ever existed, it has passed away. Lines now for the most part being so well denned and so well known to contiguous owner, that a dispute about them being the exception rather than the rule, we can see no reason, why it should lon? ger cumber our statute book, to...
