Prohibition the Great Issue in
West Virginia.
Many Otherwise Indifferent Will Be
Brought to the Polls.
Little Interest Taken in Hampshire
County of the Fight Over Bossism
and the Watson-McGraw Bow.
Special From a Staff Correspondent.
ROMNEY, W. Va., October 28.?When
the mountaineers of Hampshire county
have left their tan bark and apples at
the railroad and go back to the village
stores here to talk things over every one
of them admits that the biggest thing
West Virginia has to face is the proposed
amendment to- the state constitution
which, if adopted, will prevent the manufacture
and sale of liquor in the state.
They also agree that Wilson will be elected,
and many of them figure that William
J. Conley, republican, will go from this,
the second, district to the House of Representatives.
But the greatest topic of
conversation iy the prohibition party's
tight throughout this state, and as it has
a direct bearing on the national and
congressional vote in this county it may
be in order to spoak of it. John Cornwell,
a democrat, the big man in politics
and business here, popular all over the
state, has just completed a tour of moyt
of the counties. He told The Star's correspondent
today that the state would go
dry by a big margin, and that the interest
both sides are taking In this bitter
contest will bring out men who never
bothered about votin gbefore, and that
the republican ticket would be the gainer
by the increase.
Like a Kingdom Set Apart.
Hampshire county has been democratic

tiling started. One of the proudest exhibits
in the county is the home of
Uncle" Hopper, who had seventeen sons,
all of whom voted at the same time for
Grover Cleveland. The county is set
apart from the rest of the world like a
mountain kingdom, and the independence
of the hillside farmers, who have to
drive from, ten to thirty miles t.o the little
railroad, is beyond compare. They
are just democrats. I asked fully fifty
of them what they thought about the
Watson-McGraw row and their preference
for a man for the Senate. They are not
interested in it in the slightest way. Bossism
is so far removed from their ideas of
politics as to be classed by them with
the daily news from the Balkans. They
do admit having heard something about
It. but it is only the few who make a
continued daily newspaper study of
events who have the slightest conception
of the terrific strife that Senator Watson
and his forces are having with the McGraw
democrats. They never heard of
vote buying here, except as something
that has happened away off. This is
said to be the hardest county in the
world for a politician to spend money
in. It is a county where doors have no
locks. It is a county of pure Americans,
descended from soldiers of the revolution,
and retaining, along with the furniture
and farms, the same gracious manners.
Many of them are planting corn
from the same seed used a hundred years
ago, and are voting the same democratic
ticket that their great-grandfathers voted,
and it doesn't make much difference
who's on it. After having mixed in the
atmosphere and talk of vote sales and
crookedness which is the daily talk in !
other parts of this state one breathes
deeply of the pure mountain air hereabouts
and hopes that the advance of
time will make no change.
How a Mountaineer Views It.
A mountaineer who had come in from
the "crick district" sat on a cracker barrel
and said, in reply to a query:
"These yer prohibition fellers has been
a rampagin' and a uproarin' through
these yer mountains and that's all 1
hearn about politics. I'm a-goin' to vote
fer the amendment, 'cause they tell me
these yer whisky fellers git holt o' polltics
down there in the city and run it to
suit "em-selves."
This picturesque answer may have
been an individual case, but it describes
the sentiments of the men who hate the
thoughtvof any sort of control. This particular
mountaineer never cared about
voting before, but this time he is going
to vote for the amendment and at the
same time he Is going to cast a vote for
Con ;ey lor Congress andTaft for the presidency.
The liquor question is going to
bring out voters who never took the
slightest interest in the ballot box before,
and reports from other counties are
to the same effect.
The Prohibition Fight.
When the ballots are printed they will
have the half dozen volumns for the
various parties, republicans, progressives,
democrats, socialists, prohibition and
independent, and at the bottom or top
will have two heavily printed lines, reading:
Vote for the prohibition amendment."
"Vote against the prohibition amendment."
The voter will place a cross in the little
square opposite his preference.
He will then vote the rest of the ticket
as he chooses. The prohibition party, of
course, has Its regular column of candidates.
but the party is not trying to
elect any one of them. It is simply
making thin big tight for the amendment,
which, it carried, will wipe out
every distillery, every brewery and every
saloon in the state, it is appealing to all
parties to come out and vote. Regardless
of what candidates the farmer votes for,
he is going to be urged to vote on the
Crafty Stratagems.
But the liquor men are Invading these
mountains with some very crafty arguments.
One of the results of their campaign
is the impression, which holds good
on many a farm, that if the state goes
dry it will be illegal for a farmer to let
his cider get hard. They produce this
impression, !t is told, by pseudo traveling
salesmen, who go to a farmhouse ostensibly
to sell a sewing machine or a
piano. He adroitly switches the conversation
to the liquor tight and makes the
strong assertion that the "drys" are a
lot of radical reformers with the anticider
plank in their platform and other
things of that sort. Wherever the farm
er hereabouts has been attacked in the
cider barrel and believes it register one
good strong vote against prohibition.
He's going out to light tor his cider and
at the same time swell the vote for the
congressional race.
Indications Favor Conley.
William J. Conley, the republican from
Preston county, who is running for Congress
in the second district against Representative
"Junior" Brown, ought to be
elected, according to the political surface
conditions, lie is the attorney general
of the state. He will make a poor
run in this county, though, for the republicans
claim only 7?M> or ?00 of the
3.KM votes to be cast; but thte rest of the
district is normally republican. Representative
Brown is a democrat and was
elected because the republicans evidently
soured on Representative George C. 8turMunv
a republican voted for Brown
simply to beat Sturgls. Now they have
beaten him. set him on the shelf, the
regular thing to do would be to elect
their candidate. William J. Conley.

courthouse here last week and the democrati

Mr. Conley is not In the whirl
wind and silver-tongued oratorical class,
but his mind is full of facts and he delivers
them in plain fashion. However,
he made the fatal mistake, according to
his democratic critics here, of not mentioning
either Taft or Roosevelt; and the
democrats hereabouts are taunting the
few republicans with the fact that Con- I
ley is not up on oratory, according to
their lights. Nevertheless, Mr. Conley
has a grand chance of being one of six
republican congressmen from the state
of West Virginia. E. G.

Wanamaker Distrusts Administration
by Either of i
Other Candidates.
PHILADELPHIA, October "J8.?In an.
open letter to the business men of
America. John Wanamaker, former Postmaster
General, makes a plea for the reelection
of President Taft. He asserts
that if lie could remove the widespread
fear of '"tariff reduction in the wrong
places" a wave of enthusiasm would v
sweep the land, bringing with It unprecedented
prosperity. j
The ttfjiff situation he declares to be
most vital and should not be intrusted a
to persons "without proper equipment."
In closing, Mr. Wanamaker suggests f
that the customs be separated from the j
Treasury Department and placed under ^
a new cabinet officer?"the Secretary of
Manufactures, Tariff and Customs." Mr. j
Wanamaker writes, In part: d
No Ouilt Charged to Taft.
"Granting for argument's sake that t
Presidents Lincoln and Grant made mis- t
takes, would the people have voted them
out at the end of their first term? j.

he wax not wholly responsible. No one
has dared to add guilt to any of the

"Who Is it that wants 'Taft dismissed'? I
Is it simply to open the place for one f
who is a candidate for the presidency?
"Is it the employers of labor and ghe
builders of prosperity who urge this
change? ,
"Can those who pay little or no taxes _
be the best judges of what is for the
country's good?
Join Influence and Property.
"On the whole, what think you, is it '
not advisable to endeavor to put Influence i
and property together and look round ?
for a sure footing for four years for the 1
good of the working people as well as 1
for capital already invested?

"Those who bite at Taft respect him
and know that they can trust him, and
that the risks of his continuance as the
executive are infinitesimal In comparison
with the probabilities from administration
by either of the other candidates."

Indiana democrats are "pulling on the

There^s only one exception to this rule,

the state administration of Gov. Marshal

Mr. Ralston has not made an aggres

tinuously on the stump. The fight whicl
Representative John W. Boehne o

Haute brewer, has had its effect. Tag

it begins to look as if the more decen
democrats were going to iiave their in
ning at the polls next month. Switch
to Beveridge.
Thousands and thousands of democrat
in Indiana are saying openly that the;
are going to vote for Wilson for Presi
dent, but that on the other hand the;
are going to switch over and vote fo
Beveridge for governor, thereby kniflni
Ralston, who is regarded' as the tool o
Boss Taggart and the Terre Haute brew'
er. This element in the democratic part;
out here has not been able to down Tag
gart and Fairbanks in the primaries am
they openly accuse Taggart and Fair
banks of stealing the nomination. The;
propose to even up at the polls, and ther
isn't any doubt but what Beveridge is t
be the beneficiary of this situation. Dem
ocrats themselves say so.
The outcome of the Investigation by th
Clapp senatorial committee at Washing
ton on the Beveridge-Perkins mone;
matter will add 5,000 votes to Beveridge'
credit in Indiana. This is the oplnicm ex
pressed here on every hand. The at

job which was set up undoubtedly b:
those who are opposing him in this fight
Newspaper Situation.
The newspaper situation in Indiana i:
very much divided in this campaign, mon
so than was ever known before. The In
dianapolis News is fighting Col. Roosevel
and the progressives mighty hard. 1
even takes a whack at Beveridge. whon
it previously supported. The News joinei
hands with the New York World a fev
years ago in a tilt with Roosevelt whei
the latter was in the White House am
the fight is a personal matter with botl
of these papers.
The Indianapolis Star and the Indianap
oils Sun are fighting the republicans, witl
whom they were formerly aligned, am
are warmly supporting the progressives
Throughout the state the republican pres:
is split from the lake to the river.
The secretary of the Indiana Republic

It has been embarrassing for the flop

all over the ytate are now getting

Representative Fairchild,
Suave and Pleasant, on
Warpath on Train.
Special Correspondence of The Star.
NEW YORK, October IN, 1012
Up at republican national headquarters
the other afternoon, when the day's work
was over and the boys were talking it all
over, Francis Curtis told this one:
.Representative Fairchild of New York,
treasurer of the republican congressional
committee, was recently returning from
a trip to Arizona. V bile passing through
Illinois he went one day into the smoking
apartment, where he found a noisy man
entertaining a silent man. Suddenly Fairchild
heard the noisy man say: Now;
there's that man McKinley if ever* there
was a crook lie's one. Mep like him ought
to be in jail or strung up, and yet he's
in Congress and ran the Taft campaign,
and bought his nomination. Such a man
I tell you ought not to be at large.
Approaches Noisy Man.
The silent man seemed about to expo^>
tulate when Mr. Fairchild approached
the noisy man and very courteously asked
if he might say a word: "Go ahead."
replied the noisy man. "What do you
know about it?"
Now, Representative Fallchljd is the
gentlest, most suave and pleasant a man
that one could imagine, and yet the
noisy man knew he meant business when
lie *
"Do you know this man McKinley?"
"No, and I don't want to know him,"*
was the response.
"Do you know anybody who knows
him?" again asked Mr. Fairchild, very
"No, I don't," replied the now less
noisy man.
"Do you care to tell me where you got
your information about him?" persisted
Mr. Fairchild.
"Oh, everybody knows it. What I said
goes, all right."
Thoroughly Aroused.
"But it doesn't go," said Mr. Fairchild,
now thoroughly aroused. "I know Mr.
McKinley and have known him for
years?known him in his home, in his
business, in public and private life?and I
know hundreds of others who know him,
and I tell you that no cleaner, more honest
or upright man lives than William
B. McKinley. Every man in his district
will tell you the same thing. Every one
of hh? employes will say so. His neighbors
and acquaintances never tire of
singing his praises, and there are hundreds
and thousands whom he has helped
who would like to be here this minute
and help me give you the thrashing you
deserve. Now you Just confess that you
are mistaken and didn't know what you
were talking about or "
But Mr. Fairchild did not have to finish
his sentence, for the noisy man became
suddenly very profuse in his apology.
"Did Fairchild tell you the story?" Mr.
Curtis was asked.
"No, the silent man told me." he replied.
