The nomination of Henry G.
Davis of West Virginia as the
vice presidential candidate for
the Democrats, is a thorn in the
flesh of Stephen B. Elkins the
Republican leader of that State.
Elkins is at present United
States Senator of that State, and
one of the principal leaders of
the National Republican party,
and the nomination finds him in
the embarassing position of be
ing forced to make an active
fight against his wife's father.
If Elkins loses West Virginia his
political career will have ended,
whether Davis is elected or not,
and as self preservation is one of
the first principles of human
nature. Elkins will do his best to
keep his aged father-in-law in
private life. The campaign in
that State has already opened
up, and in his speech to the
State convention Elkins said:
"The Democracy of WestVirginia
advocates the astounding propo
sition should it come into power
in the State, to disfranchise
15.000 loyal colored Republicans
and rob them from the rights of
citizenship guaranteed by the
constitution, and for which
many of them and their fathers
fought in the war of the Union."
Here at the threshold of the
contest, the son-in-law of our
vice presidential candidate, has
opened up the race issue, and
waved the bloody shirt, but to
our mind: Senator Elkins will
never save West Virginia by any
such appeal. Now that the
Republicans themselves have
sprung the discussion of the
race question, we should like the
National committee to send
Senator Tillman into West Vir
ginia to stump that State. Ii
there is any apathy there, joini
debates between Tillman and El
kins will awaken the people, and
we believe that Tillman is the
very man to send into thai
senator G-orman will be the
*National Democratic Chairman,
we believe. A good manager.
There is much ado being made
over the telegram Judge Parker
*sent to the St. Louis convention
but in our judgment Parker did
not do anything more than Bryan
did when he told the Democratic
convention of 1900 that unless it
put a silver plank in the plat
form he would not accept tne
nomination. Parker's silence
prior to the nomination mighi
have been misleading, but his
declaration on the money ques
tion in time to take him off the
ticket if the convention desired
to do so left no doubts, and
those who distrusted the Democ
racy on account of its money
theories are no longer groping
in the dark. We believe the tel
-egram will mean many thousant
independent Republican votes t<
the Democratic ticket.
The action of the county exe
-cutive committee, in assessing
Congressman Legare $500, ir
our opinion, was a waste of time.
and will not accomplish anything
towards forcing Charleston tc
return him his money, if tha1
was the purpose. As we under
stand- it the State Executive
Committee has very unjustly
given to Charleston the specia:
privilege of assessing Congress
ional candidates, and in taking
advantage of this special privi
lege, the Charleston committe<
has been unreasonably exorbi
tant, but Congressman Legare
has paid it, and so far as tha1
*transaction is concerned th(
matter is settled. We do noi
think our committee should havt
made any assessment upon the
Congressman at all, because the
committee has no right to, bu1
it could have made a request as
it did two years ago, and we
have not the slightest doubt thai
Mr. Legare would have made
contribution; as it is, he will pal
no attention to the demand o:
our committee, and he will bN
voted for just the same, and hil
votes will be counted.

Editor The Manning Times:
While reading, a few days ago, selec

Kingley, we were much impressed b
the following passage: "Duty. be it in
small matter or a great, is duty still
the command of heaven; the eldes
voice of God. And it is only they wh
are faithful in a few things who will b
faithful over many things; only the;
who do their duty in every day ani
trivial matters who will fulfil them oi
reat occasions." This is certainl;
the truth in a nut-shell:" a ger

for their betterment.
