It was the Leader's pleasure a day
or two since to visit the State Hospital
ior the Insane at Athens, and of course,
the recent change in the personnel of a
portion of the officers in charge was
Dr. Rorick, the Superintendent re
cently appointed, impressed us as he
must quickly impress everyone, as be
ing a very fine man. He is dignified,
though easily approached, and he,
with his interesting family, has settled
very gracefully into his new position.
The new Steward, Mr. Frank
Rochester, of Logan, is a young man of
good bearing, and has in him the ele
ments of a good business hustler and
general man of affairs.
"We venture to predict that the in
stitution at Athens will prosper well

MARIETTA ELECTRIC COMPANY.
The Marietta Electric Company is
the name of the corporation which will
construct nnd operate the new electric
street railroad. The charter has been
received from Charleston, having been
issued under the laws of West Virginia.
The company is capitalized at ?30,000,
with a privilege of increasing to $200,
000. The stock is all subscribed, the
company is organized and the work of
setting poles has commenced on Second
street. The Board of Directors will be
chosen immediately and the permanent
officers elected. It is the intention to
push the work as rapidly as possible
and tlie buz, of the trolley ,will, in all
. probability, be heard on Marietta
streets before the end of the year. The
stockholders of the new company are
all gentlemen of known solidity of
finances and character, which assures
the successful end of the promotion of
the enterprise. To Messrs. Nelson
Moore, A. 4. Gracey and John Kaiser
is due largely the credit for securing
to our city this valuable and much
needed improvement More than a
.year ago they conceived the project
and set to work immediately to con
summate their plans. Success was the
inevitable result of their efforts. When
the project was in its infancy the
Leader predicted its ultimate consum
mation, basing its judgement upon the
well knowp ability of the projectors to
carry forward any undertaking. Since
that time there have become associated
with them, among others, the follow
ing enterprising and substantial busi
ness men: J. S. II. Tomer, W. II. II.
Jett, J. S. Simpson, E W. Cline, H. E.
Smith, Dan T. McAvoy, James Tate
and E. Coste. It is with no small
amount of pleasure that the Marietta
public will yiew the first trip of an
electric car in the Pioneer City. It
will be one more exemplification of the
new and greater proportions which
our city has assumed.
Exercises for Today.
The principal features of today will
be thfi Class Day Exercises, which will
be held on the Campus at 10 a. m.
The class has centered its energies in

interesting features of the week.

IN THE OIL FIELDS.
EUenboro, W. Va., Juno H.-The
Union Oil Company's well on the Mc
Cosh farm, on Whisky run, reached, the
top of tho Hlg Injun sand yesterday
afternoon, and will be watched closely
until it is drilled through this forma
tion. Tho well is an Immense gasscr.
The casing has been pulled in the
Stickler Oil Company's No. a, on Whis
ky ruri, and the hole reamed down, so
it can be cased deep enough to shut off
T. N. Hornsdall and the South I'enn
Oil Company recently finished a dry
hole on the John Israel farm, on Rock
rnn, but some thought the well was
reported dry for a blind. They have
now pulled tho casing and abandoned
the hole, which' is d right good indica-'
tion that tho well is dry, although they
tell a btory on 'Xhe" Barnsdall to the
effect that he once drilled a good well,
reported it dry. pulled the casing, even
sui rendering his lease, waited a year,
took up all his old territory and much
more, and opened up a rich field.
Davis & Scott have about arranged to
drill their Highland well to the Gordon
sand. This well is owned by Wheel
The Rock Oil Company has put in tho
eight-inch casing in the well on J. M.
McKinney's farm, on Blacks run.
The well on Mrs. M. McGregor's farm,
near Cairo, has been shot and is now
doing one inch per hour in the 250 bar
rel tank, actual gauge. Thi3 well has
caused quite a stir in the immediate
vicinity of Cairo, and even town lots
are being leased.
E. Crack & Co.'s well, located on the
Carrell farm, just west of Cairo, will
be shot to-morrow by Jas. E. Hines,
and the owners hope to increase the
production, which is now less than five
barrels per day.
The McCalumet Oil Company drilled
their well back of Cairo through the
salt, Big Injun and Berca sands, and
found oil in none of them.
Drilling has commenced on well No.
2 on the Hatfield farm, near Cairo, also
on the Nichollandin the same locality.
The record at Hebron for the past
week has been principally noted for
dry holes. The J. G. Smith farm Nos.
4 and 5 arc both dry, and Bellman &
Watson report a couple of dry holes on
the Shingleton, although one well on
Shingleton came in during the week,
and is reported good for nearly 200 bar
rels. The finding of oil in the Big Tn-
jun sand in this territory makes it
doubly valuable, and all wells that
show up dry in the Cow run sand will
be drilled deeper.
Donaldson & Meals have a rig up
and machinery on the ground to begin
operations on the J. F. Hart lease on
Over in Calhoun county considerable
wild catting is being done, nnd an im
portant test well is going down a short
distance below Grantsville. A rig is in
course of construction on N. M. Ben
nett's farm, on Steer creek, and one is
completed on Bee creek, and operations
will begin on both without delay.
The deep producing territory up in
Doddridge county seems to be on the
decline. The well on Jos. Freeman,
near Centre Point, is in and dry; also
the South Penn Oil Company's Henry
Hays well on Little Flint, which, how
ever, will be drilled to the Gordon
The Martin George well No. 3, near
Shirley, is making about 25 barrels per
There is talk of drilling the Oxford
well, back of Toll Gate, to the Gordon
sand, and this well and the Highland
well will go far towards determining
whether or not there is any deep oil in
Mr. George H. Nesbitt is endeavor
ing to secure a block of leases between
this place and Harrisville, and if suc
cessful will thoroughly test the terri
tory, as he has an enviable reputation
for fair dealing and veracity.
Col. Billy Graham will not down. It
is now reported that he will again
move the rig a few feet on the Copen
haver farm, on French creek, and drill
a well. Col. Graham began spudding
on this farm last June, and haB suc
ceeded in getting crooked holes and
most every piece of machinery used in
drilling, into them, except a boiler or

In n iceent interview Gov. Altgcld, ol
Illinois, told how many hundred ycain
gold mid smer were maintained In cir
culation nt a fixed ratio by the fiat of
government. It is not disputed that
wheneier the legal ratio lias coincided
with tho market value of the two metal.-,
they have circulated together without,
any need of legislative- fiat, but when-,
ever the legnl ratio did not coincide ,
with the commercial value pf tlu two
metals, having equal privileges nt the
mint, the coinage that was undervalued
dropped from circulation by law more
potent than the decree of -government.
Of course, depreciated cunency can
bo Kept in circulation so long as a gov
ernment may be willing and able to'
keep the promise, to redeem it in stand-'
nrd money, as in the case with the silver,
dollar of the United States and the five
franc piece of France. Tho enormous
cost and embarrassment of a flat c'ur-,
rency to the government of the United
States are witnessed in the frequent
borrowings of gold to provide for itsre
To Gov. Altgeld it is a matter of in-
ratio for the free coinoge of silver be six
teen to one or eight to one with gold,
since tho fiat of the government would
be as omnipotent in the one case as in
the other. Cut giving the history of
fiat cunency for the instruction of Illi
nois editors and speakers he might have
mentioned in the course of his narrative
the royal coin clippers who knavishly
debased the money of their subjects,
just as the silvcrites propose to d6 with
the monetary standard of the United
States. The governor, however, does
not go back quite far enough in tracing ,
the origin of fiat money. tVc have the
high authority of Goethe, who deeply
penetrateu tne nature or tnings, mat .
tho devil Mephistophelea was the in-
ventor of this kind of currency (for
which see the second part of "Faust").'
Far back in the middle ages we read
that the affairs of the Germanic empire
were in the greatest disorder. The
treasury was empty and utterly unable
to redeem its obligations. The army
was ready to mutiny because of the long
arrearages of pay. The courtiers in the
imperial palace complained of the
deprivation of the luxuries to which ,
they had been accustomed. Discontent
and distress prevailed throughout the
At this juncture Mephistophelea ap
peared on tho scene, as he always does
on such occasions, no proceeded at
once to issue fiat currency under the au
thority of his imperial majesty. At
first tie emperpr was shocked at tho
monstrous fraud, and indignantly asked
who had dared to forge tho imperial
name, and threatening at the same time
that such a crime should not go un
punished. But the imperial scruples
were .soon removed by the arguments of
Mephistophelea and the brilliant success
of tho scheme. The treasury was quick
ly replenished. The army, having re
ceived its pay, was eager to reenlist. In
the imperial palace tho courtiers, and
even the pages, had "money to burn,"
and prosperity again dawned upon the
empire. In his astonishment the em
peror naked: "And does this pass for
good gold with my people? Is it ac
cepted for full pay by the army and the
court? Much as I wonder, I must let
But tho court fool could not quite un
derstand this mogic paper, of whicli lie
had received 5,000 crowns, and asked
Mephistopheles if this was good mon
Mephisto You can have first what
ever your gullet and belly may desire.
Fool And can I buy with it fields and
houso and cattle?
Mephisto Of course I Demand only

Fool And castle, with forest and t
deer park nnd fish ponds?
Mephisto Truly. I wfould like to see
you a worshipful lord.
Fool This very evening I will rock
myself in a landed estate.
Mephisto (alone) Who now doubts
the wisdom 'of our fool?
The other fools held on to their magic
money until it withered to nothingness
In their hands. When tho inevitable
crash came Mephistophcles had busi
ness Bomewhere else in his vast domain.
Tho same personage again made its ap
pearance to lure the French people to
financial ruin when John Law acted as
liis flat money agent in the Mississippi
scheme. Ho turned up again to per
suade tho French convention to print
millions of assignats on the pledge of
the confiscated lands of the nobility
and clergy. His cloven foot was ex
hibited once more when congress was
induced to Issue an immense volume of
legal tender paper; and he laughed with
Satanic glee when this greenback cur
rency depreciated to less than 50 cents
on the dollar. He is now busy at tho
lugs of the numerous victims of the free
silver mania, whispering to them of the
wonderful prosperity that would flow
from the coinage of disks of silver,
worth 50 cents each, into full legal ten
Whenever the Altgelds and other
demagogic advocates of flat money,

per currency or of depreciated silver,

methods of finance they should give
