Glasscock Not Anxious to Play Politics. SURPRISES FOR POLITICIANS Two-Cent Rate on Railways Held Up by the Courts?Bank Taxation. Special Correspondence of The Star. WHEELING. W. Va., June 26. 1909. Gov. Glasscock this week reappointed all the old heads of the several state ln [ stltutions. but this is not to be taken as I conclusive that they will serve through ?, out his administration. The governor's I action was purely formal, because the i new state board of control will have the | say later on as to whether there are to be any changes. James T. Rucker, superintendent of the ! School for the Deaf, Dumb and Blind at ' Jtomney. is one official on whom a tight [?will be made. He has had rather a ttormy time since he went to the head >f that institution, due to the fact that fit Is one of the democratic strongholds i and because of the opposition of a fac | tion of the republican party with which ! Tlucker didn't hitch In the two guberna f torial struggles for delegates. It would i?ot be surprising If he would have to give : way to another. The politicians are surprised at Gov. PGlasscock because he dofcs not seem anxious to play politics. In other words, the hunirry ones would like to see him Set a move-on in a way that would indi cate there vouid be more new faces at the pie counter. The Swisher faction in DOCTOR KNEW HAD TRIED IT HIMSELF. The doctor who ha* tried Postum know* that It La an easy, certain and pleasant way out of the coffee habit an.l all of the alls following.' and he prescribes It tor his patients as did a (ihysiviau of Prospertown. N. J. One of his patient* say*: "During the summer Ju?t past I suffered ter l.bljr with a heavy feeling st the pit of my stomach and dizzy feeling* in my bead, and then a blindness would come over my eyes so I *ould hate to alt down. I would get eo nervous I could hardly control my feelings. "Finally 1 spoke to our family physician about It. and he asked if I drank mut'h coffee, and mother told him that I did. He told me to 1m mediately stop drinking coffee and drink Postum In lta place, aa he and his family had used J'ostum and found it a powerful rcbullder and delicious food drink. "1 hesitated for a time, dl'llklng the Idea of bating to give up my coffee, but Dually 1 got ? package and found It to he all the doctor said. "Since drinking Poetum in place of coffee my diulneKM, blludnei>H and nervousness sre all gone, my bowels are regular, and I am again well and strong. That is a short statement of .What Postam has done for me." Look to pkg? for the famous little book, 'The Road to Wellville." "There's a Reason."* . EVER READ THE ABOVE LETTER? A NEW EONE APPEARS FROM TIME TO TIME. THEY ARE GENl'INE, Till C AND FULL OP HUMAN INXfi&hiX. particular wants favorites rewarded, while the boys who trained with Scherr want to hang on where they have a hold or see some of their partisans inserted in good berths, but the governor seems dis posed to glide along the stream of least resistance and keep in office those whose records have been satisfactory. Swisherites Suspicious. The Swisher people are afraid Auditor Darst cottons too close to the old Scherr outfit In his office, and they think Darst, who owes much to the Dawson-Swisher bunch, should remember where he got his start. Darst never had the training pe culiarly fitting him for auditor, and he evidently would rather keep on as his assistants the men who had experience under Auditor Scherr than trust to a new collection. What he will do later remains to be seen,, but for the present he is not in a changing mood Failing to place Sam Montgomery In Labor Commissioner Barton's shops, the. Swisher adherents would like to see Darst make Montgomery Insurance com missioner, a job within the Darst be stowal. At present it is being filled by Julius Scherr, a brothee of the former auditor, and, like Montgomery, a Preston county man. One of the effective arguments against Scherr when he tried to be governor was his fondness for handing good things to the members of his family, and it was really the thing that hurt him most in Charleston, which meant It hurt him In Kanawha county, the biggest county in the state. And, speaking of Preston county, it Is a matter of interest that this county among the Alloghenies, tamed for its buckwheat and republican majorities, fares better than any other at the hands of the state administration. It is the county ex-Gov. Dawson hails from. Be sides getting an extraordinary sltare of the good plums it manages to get away with a lot of miscellaneous fruit. Cer tainly no other county in West Virginia has as many ambitious and successful statesmen. Spook for Sturgiss. With nothing particularly exciting fn Preston these days they are endeavoring to frighten Representative Sturgiss with opposition should he fail to hear certain voices on the question of filling the post offices at Terra Alta and Tunnelton. The latter office is filled now by the wife of ex-Senator Sam Montgomery, who, ap pointed originally by Representative Day ton, dropped it when ho went to the senate. Montgomery came to Charleston this week from Washington, where he is on the census pay rofl. While in the capital he declared that Senator Scott would have no trouble succeeding himself. Charles F. Teter, who is accused of a hankering after Scott's seat, keeps non committal, or sai's in effect that he will take it If he can get it but declines to say he will tackle the Job of setting up a legislature. So It looks like Scott might have opposition in the caucus to the ex tent of honorary mention for a favorite son or two, but nothing more serious than that. ? Taxation of Banks Considered. Attorney General Conley has been forced to get busy on the proposition of taxing banks, just after endeavoring to hold up the state's end on the two-cenS fare controversy with the Coal and Coke and Chesapeake and Ohio railroads. These are two matters which are a legacy of the radical trend of the legis latures during the Dawson regime. TTpermanent injunction was secured by the Coal and Coke Company against the two-cent rate, and the company has gone to the three-cent fare stage. Thl? is the road built by Henry G. Davis, and in which Senator Elkins is also Interested. It is a costly enterprise, with its pos sibilities remote, hence there was never any great sentiment for subjecting it to the low fare, but the legislature did not see how to make exception, other than a minimum of fifty-mile roads, and this road was too large for that. The court held that two-cent fare was confiscatory on this road. The Chesapeake and Ohio has secured only a temporary injunction, but should it succeed in making it permanent it will mean that two-cent fare for West Vir ginia is dead, unless Imposed by a new law. JOY FOR JUVENILES Bathing Beach to Open for Summer July 1. FINE NEW POOLS PROVIDED Swimming Space Over Thrice That of Old Fish Pond. HOURS FROM 10 A.M. TILL 12 M. City Water to Be Used and Let Out at Intervals to Have Tanks Scrubbed and Refilled. If the small boy in your family shows unusual excitement next Thursday morn int? It will mean that he has been tipped off that the bathing beach will be open that day for the summer. After many delays, duo to rains and the lack of funds with which to make needed improvements, the swimming pools will be ready for use Thursday morning at 10 o'clock. Congress made nn appropriation for the construction of pools, and It was there fore necessary, in order to provide a swimming place for the bathers, to call upon the different departments of the District for assistance, each and every one of which doing as much as possible to help in preparing a piace that would be worth the walk down to the Speedway to get a good swim. The new pool, which Is about com pleted, is 65 feet long and 45 feet wide, with a depth of 4 feet at one end and feet at the other. At each end of the large pool are two smaller pools, 20 by 45 feet, the one 3 feet deep and the other 4 feet deep. The shallower of the two will be used by the bathers to wash with soap before entering the larger swimming pool. The other smaller pool will be used entirely for teaching, and the depth of the water will be regulated to meet tho re quirements. No bathers will be allowed in the larger pool until they have shown that they are able to swim the length of the small pool twice. Swimming Space. The swimming space in the larger pool is more than twice that of the old fish pond on the Speedway. This fish pond was an eighth of a mile in length by 50 feet in width, but for swimming purposes there was only available a space 45 by 35 feet, as the rest of the pond was about 2 or 3 feet deep and overgrown with pond lilies early in the bathing Beason, which prevented a person swimming any great distance. It was impossible to get rid of the pond lilies. In the cement pools city water is to be used, and will be let out at regular in tervals, the pool scrubbed and refilled. This will be done at night in order not to interfere any more than possible with the use of the pools in the daytime. The hours for bathing will be from 10 a.m. unill 12 noon, and from 2 until 6 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays the pools, at the request of a number of the ladies, will be open from 7 until 10 a.m. for the use of ladies and their es corts. To Consider Children First. Because of the small space It will be necessary to consider the demands of the children first, and their welfare will be looked after by allowing them practically the exclusive use of the pools during the week days, and fqr the present Sundays will be given over entirely to adult males. Two swimming instructors have been provided, and all children under sixteen will be given lessons in swimming free of charge. Patrons of the beach will be required to fill out a registration slip, -which they will obtain from the clerk in the office at the bathing beach, giving their name, age and residence. This they will, take to the bathhouse and be assigned lockers. The lockers are four by six, and four boys will be assigned to each locker. Suits can be hired, including a towel, for 15 cents, and private dressing room for one, two or three persons, 25 cents. Pool for Colored Children. The work on the pool for colored chil dren, at the east end of the grounds, 1s being pushed along as rapidly as possible, and will be completed about July 10. The filling in of the old pond by the superin-. tendent of public buildings and grounds, which was formerly used by the colored boys, necessitated the improving of the small pool, and this will take some little time to complete, as the grade is to be changed to assure its emptying freely. This pool, like the other, will be filled with city water and swimming Instruc tors will be provided. i Nearly every department In the Dis trict have shown special Interest In the preparation of the pools, and have done all in their power to aid In having them completed as soon as possible. Judging from the number of boys who have been coming down to the bathing beach daily since school closcd, the authorities of the bathing beach will have their hands full looking after them. The boys, as a rule, are orderly and considerate of each other, and appreciate every effort that Is made In their behalf, and if it was left to them the bathing beach would consume the big basin and be reached by electric cars with free transportation, and no charge would be made for Ice-cream sodds or Ice-cream cones. GEN. COXEY DEFENDS HIS FAMOUS MARCH Jacob S. Coxey. "Under the came conditions I would do It again," said Gen. Jacob S. Coxey at the Capitol. He was replying to a ques tion as to whether he had any regrets over bringing his so-called Coxey's army to Washington In 1894. "It is just fifteen years since I came to Washington at the head of the army." he said "and I would do it again under similar provocation." Speaking of his reasons for marching his followers to the Capltifl city Mr. Coxey declared that Congress had rec ognized the soundness of one of his contentions by passing the Vreeland Aldrlch currency bill. He referred to his demand for the Issuance of non interest-bearlng bonds, and said that this demand had been met in the emergency currency bill. "But," he added, "the banks and not the people get the benefit of the pro vision." Oen. Coxey is the owner of an arsenic mine In Virginia, and he is here ad vocating a duty on arsenic. Court Sustains Will of Capt. David Meade. PANTHER IS KILLING SHEEP Heavy Rains Flood Streams in Many Counties. STALLION BLACK PRINCE DEAD V. M. I. Commencement and Ger man Held at Lexington?Wheat Harvesting to Begin Soon. Special Correspondence of The Star. WINCHESTER, Va.. June 23, 1909. 'The validity of the will of the late Capt. David Meade of White Post, Clarke coun ty, was upheld this week in a decision rendered by Judge T. W. Harrison of the circuit court. Heirs, among whom are members of the Snowden family of Alexandria, con tested on the grounds that Capt. Meade was subject to spells of epilepsy and that he had been unduly influenced in making the will. Judge Harrison's de cision, however, does not recognize the contention and orders the will recorded. The contestants noted an appeal to the Virginia supreme court. Residents of Hampshire county, W. Va., in the vicinity of Wardensville, are pur suing a large panther which has been killing many sheep in that locality.
