WEDNESDAY, November 21, 1888.
There is some hope that West Vir
a may yet be Democratic which,
if so, will save the House of Repre
sentatives to us.
There is no material change in the
political aspect. The entire national
government is in the hands of our
friends, the enemy.
It is rumored that President Cleve
land will be elected president of the
Baltimore & Ohio railroad, to enter
upon the discharge of his duties next
The law requires all persons who
draw pensions from the State, on ac
count of services in the late war, to
report during this month to the Clerk
of the Court in person, or as the law
directs, the pension will be refused.
We had hoped to have given the
complete State returns to-day, but
the S canvassers have not yet fin

day issed one of the moetmammoth

things we have ever seen, giving a
description of every place of interest
in and around Charleston, and con

leading business houses. We shall

The Charleston Gala Week is boom
ing, so to speak. The citizens have
made great exertions to have a big
thing of it, and we know they will
make no failure. The newspaper re
ports the city to be gorgeously deco
rated, and crowded with visitors, but
that the hotels and boarding houses
can easily accommodate all who come.
The railroad *fare is only nominal, a
cent a mile, and no better opportuni

The music house of Ludden &

nearly as large as a nage of the

.To enclose such a circular in a news

Benjamin H. Harrisen.
-e ami H. Harrison, the President of
the United States, was born at NortiaBend,
rnmitncounty, Ohio, on the 20th day of
Aus,1883. He attended.4he Miami
University. Oxford, Ohio, for several years.
and graduated in the class of 1852 as a gpod
may great men have done, not, dangerous
ly near the head of his class.
Iimediately after graduation, he removed
to incnnati, where he studied law, and
*was adnited to the bar in1854. In March
of the same year. he removed to Indian
spokls where he has since resided, and be
ter ee of law. Like many young
kyxbehad a hard time at first, but the
ouentry was new and Harrison had brains
gd en and puck and soon rose toemn
laQ Oober 180he wa, by a vote of the
eoechosen reporter of the Supreme
aoioflinois. Usheld this position for
two~eee when he resigned, and was comn
missumed in July, 1862, as uecond licuten

tain, and on the organination of the regi

-he went with his regiment to Kentucky,
and served there until mustered out in
June, 1865. In Yebruary.1865, he was bre
vetted brigadier general. Previous to this
bowever, in 1864, while still in the field, be
was r.elected supreme court reporter, and
when wnadatu entered upon tne dui

lemsa-for Governor of Indiana, but was
.defeated. In 1880 he was elected United
States Senator to sueceed Joseph E. Mc
Donald, Democrat, and took his seat on
March dth, 1881. He served in the Senate
as a ponent Republican member until
dt&4h, 188.,. when his term of office ex
p-ed He then retired to his legal prac
tice, and at the Republican Convention
which met in Chicago on the 17th of June,
was chosen as- the nominee of that party
for the Presidency. The incidents of this
cnvention are still fresh in the minds of
the public. General Harrison was a candi
date from the beginning of the Convention,
but very few persons looked for his nomi
natin, and the overwhelming vote which
he received on the sixth day of its session,
was a srrise to the country.
Genea Harrison comes of a good old
.stock, and is a grandson of the hero of Tip
aowho was chosen President as a
'in1840. What his policy towards
the South will be cannot be forecast. He
has never been an extremte Republican, but
on the contrary, has always rankea among
the conservatives. His record for a public
man is remarkably pure, and he passed
the ordeal of the campaign without having
.a single aspersion east upon his private

Levi P. Morton, the Vice-President elect,
bas always been better known as a capital
ist than as a politician. He is a shrewd
business man, and has made his fortune
in banking. His political career has not
been a very extensive one. He wac a mnem

ini the New York State Senate. His highie*
political honor was his appointment as

A Battle for Honest Princip!cs.
Nzw Yons:, November 15.-The Heral's
Washington correspondent telegn-'phs as
follows: Distinguished Denmocrat-e lead
ers who recently talked with the President
regarding the election quote Cleveland as
saying: I am told that without the tariff
issue in the last campaig we should1 have
carried the country. Tht may be true,
but the time had come when an issue be
tween two parties had to be made and
Democrats made it. I don't regret it. It
is better to be defeated battling for honest
principle than win by cowardly subterfuge.
Some of niy friends say we ought to have
gone before the country on the clean ad
miistration we have given. the people. I
differ from them. W~e needed a clean-cut,
well-defined iss-ze. We were d-:feated, it is
true, but the principles of tarirT reform will
surely win in the end.
