Jndirmation Excited Among C
Umbers of the Virginia LegisL
The colored people of Virginia arc
considerably stirred over the remark
made by Congressman J. S. Wise in
before the Sherman in-
Text of the Currency Bill.

that negroes did not "presume" toas

they "went to the kitchen" where he
gaAV them, and incidentally compared
them to the "riff raff" of New York.
Jn the Virginia House of Delegates
Thursday, five co Med coalition mem
krs of that body rose to personal
privilege in connection with the ref
ferenceniade to colored members by
Mr. Wise. Delegate Harris, of Din
widdie, one of the most intelligent
colored men of the State, said in this
connection : "As a member of the
General Assembly of the State of Vir
ginia, I will say that when I go to
see a gentleman on business I would
like to see him at his office or place
f business, where any other gentle
man would be received and not be
uked to go in the kitchen. If Mr.
Wise meant what he said it had no
reference to me, for I do not know
where he lives. I could not find his
house except by direction, and I am
not one of tlrat number that saw him
in his kitchen."
Mr. Bland, of Burry speaking on
the same subject, was very pointed,
and seemed to wish the House to
hear every word he uttered. Said he :
"I have never sthight Mr. Wise in
y i ' ill
warned to see air. wise, i touici nave
seen him upon this floor, where he
was frequently." The speaker evi
dently referred to the last session of
the Legislature, when Mr. Wise was
often in the hall of the House in con
sultation with coalition members
about matters of party policy.
Messrs. Scott, Dobson and Griffin,
three more colored members who rose
to a privileged question, also dis
claimed any acquaintanceship with
the culinary domains of Mr. Wise's
house. Each asserted that when they
go to see Mr. Wise they will not go
to his kitchen.
The remarks o& the colored dele
gates were. received by the Democrat
ic members with evident siirns of
The Following is the currency bill j
as it passed the Senate Monday :

Tobacco Fertilizer, prepared by the Sputhern Fertilizing Company, Richmond, Na.
And this opinion is based upon seventeen years' trial, and often in competition with the
best of other brands on the market. It is a tried and proved fertilizer, which the plant
er can use without the risk of getting something unsuited to his crop; and therefore I
can recommcd it with confide. -ice."
Messrs. Mathews & Williamson, of Reidsville, N. C, wrote the following to the
Company, and state that they have seen nothing since to change their judgment.
"From our own personal experience, and it covers a long time, in watching the re
sults from the use of various brands of commercial fertilizers handled in this section, it
is our mature judgment that the 'ilZTCHOR BRAZtD' stands at the head of all
for the production of fine, silky, yellow tobacco. The plant seems to receive more fitting
nourishment from the use of this article than from any other, and we are of opinion
that if our farmers made it their stand-by, we would hear less of light chaffy tobacco,
having some color but no body, and that the farmer would realize the result he oeght
to enjoy from his labor; for low-grade tobacco mil no bring Wig money."
Now we want you to have "big money" for your crop; because wc not only desire
you to make good hills with us, but pay for them when they are made; hence we han
dle the 'Anchor Brand,' and will supply you, in quantities to suit, direct from the
factory. We don't want people to abuse us about their fertilizer ; we, therefore, sell
only what time hss shown to be the best. So, make no arrangements in this line, until
you see or confer with us. You certainly can't afford to take any risk this year.
