MAKES BOLD BID FOR SUPPORT
Complex Situation in West Virginia.
Chances Believed to Be in In

"ttTrEEL.IN'0. W. Vh.. February 12. 1MO.
Senator Scott < amp to Wheeling for the
week In the interest of his campaign to
?succeed himself and while here he Js
,-i?ed h statement formally announcing his
> undidacy. One of the reasons for his
return home was to attend the funeral
ol his friend, iienry F. Behrens, a re
tired merchant, who, as a member of tne
? legislature. helped elect Scott the first
In announcing his candidacy the senator
made no reference to the manner or
method of determining the contest with
Representative Hubbard, a detail that
did not excite surprise.
In personal Interviews, however. Sena
tor Scott was emphatic in saying he was
willing to ko before the voters at a pri
mary. a state-wide primary preferred. He
recalled his position of years in favor of
th's plan, but, he said, for lack of any
state law on the subject he did not rare
to go into a state primary. He wanted
to know if Hubbard was willing to
share the immense burden of cost, since
the plan would mean a legitimate expense
of not less than $100,000. This sum
would cover the expanses of the election
commissioners and clerks, rent of polling
places and other essentials.
Hold-Overs for Scott.
Scott claims he has now for his friends
and supporters all, or nearly all, of the
republican hold-over members of the state
senate. Thus he has a good start, while
Hubbard has nothing to go on but what
he can capture in the legislators chosen
this year. In other words, Hubbard has
nothing to lose and all to gain in sub
mitting his case to a state primary,
whose decision would be final, while
Scott's victory at a primary would merely
supplement his present list of supporters
in the state.
There is no tribunal to initiate and con
duct a state primary except the state
committee. No appeal to it for a pri
mary has been made by Hubbard. In
fact, there is nothing to indicate that
he wants a departure from the estab
lished methods except in a paragraph in
his announcement wherein he declares
he is in favor of submitting his claims
to the people, that he does not believe
the small counties should be smothered
by the bljr counties in a convention, and
that nobody owns the senatorial office.
Oracles Are Stirred Up.
The Hubbard paragraph, followed by
the indorsement of a certain implication
that Scott would not want a similar meth
od, has stirred the Scott oracles to re
sentment, so that, foliewlng the senator's
return to West Virginia, they have asked
for further light from Hubbard and for
any old kind of Queensberry rules de
sired. They have pointed out that prima
ries have always been held in deciding
party contests where the battleground in
the senatorial flght is to be?the northern
Panhandle counties?and that to imply
that the Scott forces do not want a
straight-out flght Is to ring changes on a
Incidentally, the Scott press Is pointing
out that the declaration for a primary
from ex-tlov. Dawson is amusing and
inconsistent, in view of his success in
preventing a primary clamored for In
Preston county on the Swlsher-Scherr
gubernatorial contest two years ago,
when the Dawson-controlled county com
mittee virtually selected that county's
representation in the convention, and in
the interest of Swisher, while the ac
knowledged sentiment was otherwise.
The issue will be decided this year in
West Virginia, It Is declared, exactly as
the several county organizations prefer.
And after the legislature is nominated
and elected no candidate for the honor
will feel entirely free. He will know
he has been chosen United States sen
ator when his name heads the list the
day the lawmakers meet In Joint ses
sion for that purpose. Up to that
moment he will ?iave his anxieties.
Greeting the People.
While here Senator Scott journeyed to
Brooke county, and he met large and
representative delegations from Wetzel,
Tyler, Marshall, Ohio and Hancock at
his headquarters here, which are In
charge of State Senator Robert Hazlett.
His supporters admit there was a lively
ripple following Hubbard's announce
ment, but they express unbounded confi
dence in the gradual settling down of
things in their fa or. There is no doubt
of the great work done in perfecting a
Scott organization recently, and the Hub
bard people do not deny the surprising
strength Scott has displayed since he
learned he had a fight on.
This change in the situation is taken
to explain Hubbard's refusal to say he
will not be a candidate again for his
present seat in the House of Representa
tives, although the best judges say he
will finally announce that he will not
again be a candidate for that position.
The Wheeling district has three candi
dates for the state senate?Julian G.
Hearne and John G. Hoffmann, Scott
men, and City Solicitor R. M. Addleman,
a Hubbard man. The Scott crowd has
not been able to eliminate either Hearne
or Hoffmann. Some feelers have gone out
in Hearne's behalf as a candidate for
Congress instead, without conclusive re

Creditors Attach Apples.
Attachments aggregating over $18,000
were sued out here a few days ago by
a number of leading apple growers
against Samuel Haines, a prominent New
York dealer, who bought extensively in
the local market last fall, paying high
prices for the fruit, and who found it
impossible to dispose of his holdings at
a profit. Most of the apples were in
cold storage here and they were at
tached. A meeting of the creditors was
held this week, and it was announced
today that a satisfactory settlement had
been effected. No suspicion was cast
upon Mr. Haines' motives.

Washington, but now of New York, has
