: The Republican Party stands :
for honest money and the chance

: william Mckinley.
Uryan ahd his followers say that
silver will bring higher prices for pro
ducts. Why? How does he know this?
Will the crops be smaller, and hence
the supply less? This is all that can
raise the prices of the agriculturist's
output. Nothing more, nothing less.
The rise and fall of these things de
pends entirely upon how much one has
and how badly another man wants it,
and it affects not the value, no matter
what the medium of exchange.
That the sheep industry in Ohio has
fallen off tremendously under the Wilson-Gorman
free wool schedule is
shown by the Auditor of State's last
report In Ohio the number of sheep
in lS9.ri was 3,004,035, wfille in lsuo
there arc but 2,2!)3,0SU. In Washing
ton county alone the drop from '95 to
'00 is 14,104; there being in '95 5',570,
and in '96 38,472.
Give us back Eepubliconism nd its'
policy of protection to America's
flocks. Ohio has been the greatest
wool state and the depreciation in this
one item is a tremendous drawback to
If the Republican managers hd no
other sources of information, they
would know from the tone of
the speeches made by Uryan
and his followers that the popocrats
were on the run. They have already
begun to explain their defeat by all
sorts of ridiculous charges about capi
talists compelling their employes to
support McKinley and Hobart. Hut
the Republican managers know from
other sources direct reports from the
states that ISryan is already licked,
and that if the election were to be
held this week McKinley nnd Hobart
would be easy winners. The Uryan
managers know this too, and that is
one reason why they aro struggling so
hard on the stump and through the
literature they are distributing to
arouse class prejudice in favor of
Uryan. Rut they are barking up tho
wrong tree. The average American
voter knows a thing or two, and hay
ing once made up his mind by bring
ing his common sense to bear upon the
questions at issue he will not allow
that decision to be upset by his preju
dice The more desperate Uryan's chances
jret the larger grows the demands of
the Populists. Tom Watson compelled
the popocrntlc managers to set aside
their original programme and agree
that Bryan and himself should be noti
fied of their nomination, and he has
riow started out to compel! them to
'take Sewall oil the 'ticket and put, him
on. Watson h,as, not minced matters.
He has told the popocratic managers
that they could choose between put
ting him on the regular Bryan ticket
and the certainty of losing several of
the southern states, und if they do not
decide by the time that Bryan comes
east again, next week, it is said that
Watson, who is also coming east, in
tends to compel Bryan to publicly
choose between himself and Sewall as
his running mate. The popocrats say
that Sewall will not be taken off tho
ticket, but they are reported to bo
bringing all sorts of pressure upon him
to take himself off the ticket, so that
tho Populists may , be satisfied by put
ting Watson on.
A fair specimen of the misrepresenta
tion which is the most prominent fea-
ture of the campaign that is being con
ducted in behalf of Bryan, repudiation
and anarchy was the statement of Sena
tor Faulkner, chairman of tho Demo
cratic Congressional committee, that
the republicans had sent an enormous
quantity ot literature into Arkansas.
The republicans sent no literature at
all into that state, except to a few hun
dred individuals who made specific re
quests for it, because they did not feel
able to waste good material in a State
whero tho election machinery could bo
so manipulated as to turn out any de
sired democratic majority. In fact, the
demand for literature has been so great
that tho republican committee has had
to cut down tho quantity asked for in
all States that aro Yejjarded as surely
majdrity' in Arkansas represents
crooked work of dishonest election offl
cials rather than the honest votes de
prives them of any significance.
It can be stated upon the bestauthor-
ity that at a conference held in Now
York city last week between Senator
nill and a number of prominent Tam
many Hall democrats the opinion of
every man present was that Bryan
hadn't the slightest chance to carry
New York, and that their only chance
was to make a fight on Black, the re
publican candidate for Govenor, upon
purely Stato issues, if that be possible.
Still Mr. Bryan and Senator Stewart
are talking wildly about New York be
ing carried for silver.
It is not now considered probable
that the gold democrats will put up
electors in Maryland. They had a con
ference this week in Baltimore and
while the matter was not definitely
settled, the sentiment of those present
was strongly in favor of the gold demo
crats of the state casting their votes
directly for McKinley and Hobart.
Senator Jones' appeal for popular
subscriptions to the popocratic cam
paign fund having utterly failed, Sena
tor Butler, chairman of the populist
National committee, and credited with
being the controlling spirit at the popo
cratic headquarter in Washington, this
week issued an appeal to the populists
for contributions of SI and upwards.
The few populists who have become
known to Washington are not the sort
of mem who contribute moey to po
The popocrats have about stopped
claiming Wisconsin, now that the ex
tent of the democratic revolt against
Bryan and free silver in that state is
becoming known. Chairman Babcock,
of the Republican Congressional com
mittee, is from Wisconsin, and he has
said from the first that it would give
McKinley and Hobart an immense ma
jority. A Cem From Speaker Reed.
Thomas B. Reed has said and written
many pungent paragraphs, but none
better than the following in his intro
duction to "Protection and Prosper
ity:" Somehow or other, times like these
are great educators. How very fine
used to be the sneer about lifting one's
self by the boot straps! How clear
used also to seem the demonstration
that taxes could create nothing! What
a fine, large mouth the consumer had
those days, and how puny and un
worthy seemed the hands of tho pro
ducer! Now the unfilled mouth has
discovered who owns the hands. This
book will show you that this has been
the history of nations, a hundred
times; nay, it has been the history of
our own nation half a score of times in
our short life. Like the Spanish
Grandee in the Cemetery we were well
and wanted to be better, took med
icine, and here we are. Is it worth
while to undergo this death and resur
rection again? We shall never do it if
we lay fast hold on the facts of the un
iverse. There may be a time come
when nations will be no more, when
the brotherhood of man may be estab
lished, when communication may bo
so rapid, when we shall be so equally
advanced in civilization, that nobody
cares where he lives or is buried; when
distance shall break no ties, and whon
the universal language is spoken by
everybody without accent; in that
time we may lose nationality and be
come citizens of the world. Then free
trade may reign. But such a time will
not happen within the hundred years
which centre in that week when two
English speaking nations were ready
to clutch each other by the throat
about a boundary thousands of miles
away, and the German emperor was
reaay to nght the mngqom ot his
gnTridmBtner tfbout? souiS'pebnle in Af
rjca whose ancestors left the father
land so' long ago that history is not
quite sure that they did leave it.
Nationality is a fact, brotherhood is a
hope. Perhaps if we live up to our
fact, that may be the best way to ar
rive at our hope.
Your Boy.Wont Live a Month.
So Mr. Gilman Brown, of 34 Mill St,
South Gardner, Mass., was told by the
doctors. His son had Lung trouble,
following Typhoid Malaria, and be
spent three hundred and seyenty-flye
dollars with doctors, who finally gave
him up, saying: "Your boy wont live a

Discovery and a few bottles restored
him to health and enabled him to go
to work a perfectly well man. He says

The New Tyler County Strike Made Nine
ty Barrels In Twelve Hoars
Pittshuro, Sept 11. (8pecial) Many
inquiries relative to tho production of
the Spragg & Co. well, on tne Mayfield
farm at Conway, Tyler county, W. Va.,
are heard each day. Tho well is re
mote from any previous development
and with no nearby telegraph ofilces,
Very little of an authentic nature can
be received from tho well. The very
latest information is a telegram re
ceived today in which it was stated
that tho well had produced 00 barrels
in the last 12 hours ending at 7 a. m.
This shows a siight decline over tho
guage of tho previous day, when tho

largeljcompanies ha& secured any ter
ritory in that locality and have, left an
open field for the small fry. The own
ers of the new well have only a limited
acreage under lease.
The pools discovered in Tyler' county
in the past two or more years have
been disappointments. It is to be
hoped that this Conway strike will not
follow the example set by tho Kyle and
Bullman pools; both gave promise of
developing into large fields, but when
tho work of extending their probable
dimensions began it was soon discov
ered that a few acres of good producing
territory was all that comprised either
pool and the decline in proauction was
even more maiked than the rise.
If the Gordon sand well on the Hearne
farm, in Wetzel county, is a good pro
ducer, since an effort has been made
to put it to pumping, no word to that
effect has been received by tho owners
in Pittsburg. Dcspito the good show
ing made when the well was first
drilled in, the impression is now that
it is a small affair and it will require
some very strong argument, backed up
by actual guages, to change the pro
Aside from the Mayfield well, the
Big Injun well on the Barker farm, the
Price well in Monroe county and the
Berea grit well on tho Hendershot farm,
in Wood county, are all somewhat in
teresting, and the development of con
tiguous territory in their respective
localities promises rather active field
work for the lower southwest during
the fall and early winter months.
Out on Sancho creek, Tyler county,
the Carter Oil company has not, , given
up all hope of finding something sub
stantial. This company has comploted
its No. 3 on the E C. Freeland farm,
and will have a paying producer.
A number of Marietta gentlemen own
leases on over a thousand acres inclose
proximity to tha big Lubeck well in
the Cairo field and unless all signs fail
it will net them a handsome sum,
The Cow Run well of the Tunnel Oil

WHERE IS THE WRITER?
A Pathetic Letter, Found In the Ohio
KIer, Hinting a Possible Tragedy.
Last evening George Richardson,
the diver, who recovered the body of
tho drowned George Hecker, found a
sealed glass jar, containing a lotter, in
the Ohio river, just below this city.
He brought the lotter to Lieut Carfer,
who showed the interesting document
to a State Journal man last night. It
was enclosed in an envelope, in the
corner of which was printed: Hotel
Boyey, W. A. Boyey, proprietor, Den
On the back of the envelope was
written the names, Brown Station,
McDonald, Little Washington and
Wheeling. The letter, which speaks
for itself, read as follows:
Parkkkbijuko, Aug. 25, '90.
To who ever finds this jar please no
tify the public that I have done away
with myself. I can not stand these
hard times. Life is a burden, no em
ployment, sick and discouraged, all
owing to these Democratic times.
You may find my body between Park
ersburg and Cincinnati. Man of 5 feet
10K in., red beard, dress well. Please
notify Grover Cleveland, my relatives.
Yours, a Failure.
While the above may bo the fabrica
tion of some practical joker, it has
somehow tho ring of truth in it, which
prompts the reader to incline to ac
cept its statements as sincere, and as
of informing the world of a tragedy of
a kind growing familiar enough in late
years. Parkersburg Journal.
Early Mornlne Fire.
Two barns, one belonging to William
Kennedy, 711 Third street, and the
other t Henry Wenzel, 709 Third street,
caught fire this morning about 3:30
o'clock, and an alarm was iurrred in'
'from Box ist"'3 ' '
How tho fire started nobodr knows,',
but it is tnought to be Incendiary. The
Wenzel barn caught first, and tho Ken
nedy barn, which stood almost against
it, easily caught tho blaze. Tho frame
of the Wenzel barn withstood the fire
and did not collapse, but the Kennedy
barn was totally destroyed. Wenzel's
barn did not contain much, we under
stand, but Kennedy's was full of hay.
There was no stock in either. Kennedy
carried a small insurance.

RESTORATION OF OIL WELX&
An Kleotrio Heater DeelRnml to Cause the
Tho general theory concerning the
exhaustion of so many oil wells is that
the oil, in passing' through the stone,
has clogged tho porous etones with par
afllnc in such quantities that the fur

to produce. In many cases, says the
Age of Steel, the supply In the earth has

SHINGLES LAST A CENTURY.
Roof of ATtchlffafl White Cedar Reelst
There are said to bo Michigan white
cedar shingles now doing' good eorvice
on roofs in that state that have been in
full exposure and wear for over 75 years.
It is thus soeri that climate afiocts the
durability of shingles, and the faob that
white cedar is tho natural product of
Michigan and red cednr of the Pacific
coast is held to be proof that tho red
cedar is naturally adapted far use on the
Pacific coast and the white for use in
such flections as tho middle and north
western states, etc. A pecuuliar objec
tion is brought against the red cedar by
some namely: that there exists? in that
wood an acid which is, in the climate
of certain sections, so acted upon by
water as to corrode rapidly tho nails
with which the shingles are- fastened
onto roofs, the rust extending to tho
wood around the nails, and soon causing
a leaky roof this action explaining tho
holes so often to be seen around, the
nails in red cedar roofs. Another point
offered for consideration In this connec
tion i3 the fact, as stated, thata shingle
it ruined by kiln drying, and that no
kiln-dried lumber can be regarded as of
equal taluo for outside work to that
which is air-dried.
Clever Clowns Are Hard to Secure Some
A comparison between English ajid
American pantomime will result favor
ably in many particulars for the Amer
ican, because noelty le dly lacking
in the former, cays an exchange. The
English clown makes hteoppearancc on
the stage with a "Hero we aro again"
with a certainty that only equals the
coming or death and rent day. Hump-ty-Dunlpty,
Columbine, tho policeman
ond all other funny people are as stere
otyped as throe meals a day, and our
cousins across the water look upon them

thirst for novelty we should say but n

Pantomtmlsts like the famous Qrl
inaldi and Ravel families do not flourish
now, and the pantomime must combine
gjreat spectacular features and in
genious devices ns well as comedy ele
ments. Pantomime has never been suc
cessfully engrafted on American soil;
otherwise it would be an institution in
every large city in the land. But when
ever it was well done it always paid
well. Years ago the Ravels came to
New York and became the craze of the

walking across the stngc, and poor
George Fox, who was the best panto
