THE EVENING TRUTH. NUMBER 51. CURRENT COMMENT. The Paltry Sum. [ra«e Courier.l The Richmond Dispatch will not complain of this measure, having stated editorially that theoo,ooo, the cost of the extra ses-ion of the Legislature, was a paltry sum to be expended for keeping its party in power in this State —l'uye Courier. And it was a paltry sum when compared with the good which its expenditure has accomplished already and will accomplish hereafter. The old Com uonwealth may well congratulate iier-elf that that extra session united her good people and paved thf way to the success this year of the Democratic | art£. Better spend a million dollars on extra sessions than return to Mahone rule. Richmond Dispatch.

The Truth. SATURDAY EVENING ..JULY 30 A Big Thing. LETTER PROM JOHN 8. BARBOUR—GOOD READING. Your very able and suggestive letter of the 15th, relative to the political situation in Virginia, and especially presenting your views in regard to the question of the State debt, has been duly received apd read with much interest. lam very much obliged for the personal reference to myself, and only wish that I were more competent to measure up tp the requirements of the occasion. I have given tbe of the State debt a good deal of thought, and, as at present advised, do not see thai the Democratic party of Virginia can afford to change the position assumed in 1883 to abide by the Riddleberger settlement. The people of Virginia have approved of this platform, as annunciated iu the creed of both parties. Ido not think, therefore, it would be safe to depart from this position. The assistance of the Federal Government—to which you refer as the idea of Henry A. Wise first, and afterwards presente...

The Truth. SATURDAY EVENING JULY 30 American Tools Abroad. HOW INVENTION AND WORKMANSHIP GET THE BETTER OF CHEAP LABOB. 11/oiirton Iron.] "Our American contemporaries have every cause to be surprised at the astonishing fact that thousands of tons of scrup iron are every year taken to the United Stated and there converted into the simplest of American manufactures, the sad or laundry iron, and then exported hack to Europe at no small profit. There is no one corner of Europe where American small cast hardware is not ou sale. The tool makers and machinists of Europe—such as Krupp, of Germany, Whitworth & Armstrong, of England, and Hotchkiss, of France, with their vast resources—are unable to produce a Moncky or screw-bar wrench equal to the American wrenches, and consequently they have to import these tools from the States. It is stated that there are no less than 80,000 dozen of them exported to Europe alone every year. It is interesting to ik te that Charles Moncky, the i...

The Truth. MONDAY EVENING AUGUST 1 How Engaged Couples Act. SOME INTERESTING EXPERIENCES AND SUGGESTIONS BY SOUTHERN LADIES. The Kansas City Star gives a number of confessions and experiences relating to engagements. The first to take the witness-stand was a pretty girl with many admirers: "I have been engaged twice." A surprised murmer rose from the party. "And the truth of the saylug that there is no accounting for woman's taste was fully verified in my case, for the two gentlemen could not have been more unlike. The first proposal came from one some years my senior. He told his tale with difficulty, and the hesitation with which lie talked imparted to me something akin to it, for I did not accept him as quickly as I intended. However, we became engaged and remained so for four months. And do you know that during the whole time he never as much as touched my hand." " Never kissed you ? " asked a petite brunette, in a tone of wondering indignation. "Never." "The other man was an ar...

We call attention to the communication of "Citizen" in another column. We have no desire to do any one an injustice, but the circumstances surrounding the discharge of Mr. J. E. Farrar, overhauler on the Richmond Street Ratlway, calls for some notice from us. The neglect of duty, if neglect it may be termed at all, was very slight and occurring on the Sabbath, as it did, was very excusable. The manner in which this gentleman was discharged and what was said to him at the time leaves the impression upon our mind that he was discharged principally because he was a Knight of Labor and...

The Truth. TUESDAY EVENING APGUST 2 Beginning The Day. A BON VIVANT GIVES A FEW HOMELY HINTS OF PRACTICAL VALUE. "When you tret up in the morning take a big drink of water. Your system wants water first. An engine isn't first fired up and then some water let into the boiler. Glean your teeth and let the water run from the spigot while you're doing it. Then drink a pint of it. Use common hydrant water; no ice, no salt, no mineral water. Ordinary water is good enough for an ordinarily healthy man. Keep away from drugs and pills and give your stomach a show. "If you're in a hurry to read the papers, read them before breakfast. When you sit down to the breakfast table be happy; you're going to do something pleasant. Breakfast isn't a penalty imposed upon you, or a task to be performed as soon as possible, but a pleasant, enjoyable occasion. Try and have somebody talk to you, and talk yourself. Laugh. Start off with fruit. Then eat some fish and stale bread, or stale rolls or toast. If y...

The Truth. •WEDNESDAY EVENING AUGUST 3 Fighting Sixty-six Rounds. XiIGHT WEIGHTS AL. JANSEN AND ROBERT BURNS IN A PROLONGED BATTLE. Providence, R. 1., August 1. — Rhode Island is getting to be the sluggers' paradise and pugilists need only avoid the police of this city and one or two of the larger towns to pummel each other to their hearts' content, without interruption. There was no need, therefore, for the prize fighters to have gone within site of the Connecticut line on Sunday night, but there they went, and there, in the cool hours of this morning, a battle was fougtit, second in interest only to the recent flight between the " Belfast Spider" and Havelin. The ring was pitched in the town of Coventry and the mill was called a few minutes after 5 o'clock. The contestants were Al. Jansen and Robert Burns, both of Olneyville, light weights and believed to be well matched in size and weight. Jansen showed in the better form, however, and was a few pounds the heavier of the two.

Startling Announcement. [Richmond Times. • The Commissioners of the Sinking Fund of the public debt of Virginia advertise that they are going to invest the sum of $25,00 on the purchase of Riddleberger bonds. The expenditure of this enormous sum of money shows indeed how admirably our finances are managed, and it must fill the bosoms of the Treasury officials at Washington with envy and respect. We can picture, too, the excitement of the Rothchilds and Barings ami other leading financiers when they read the announcement in their morning's Dispatch. At the s#me time we must confess the advertisement of the Sinking Fund Commissioners is a disappointment to us. What is the ...

The Truth. THURSDAY EVENING AUGUST 3 Witnesses Spirited Away. BURGEON CRAWFORD APPEARS FOR TRIAD IN THE CASE OF EVA WHITE. Washington, August 2—A large crowd of well-dressed, idle ineu about town were present in the police court to-day when ihe case of Past Assistant Surgeon Crawford, of the navy, for the alleged betrayal of little Eva White came up for trial. Quite a number of the spectators were Dr. Crawford's personal friends. Several were naval officers on duty at the department here. Others again were members of the bar, attracted by the novelty of the proceedings, it being the first case under the Utah law. Dr. Crawford bore the scrutiny of the crowd with amiable indifference. He wore a well fitting suit of navy blue, and laughed frequently at the sparring, which was at times rather severe, between the opposing counsel. Mr. Lipscomb, the government prosecutor, stated to the court that the principal witness for that side, Amanda Diggs, had been spirited away. Owing to this fact...
