The democrat that scratches a ticket this time must have an itch lor flocking by him self. He needs an antiscorbutic. The only scratching of a ticket this time admissable is that nec< -ary to make a vote Count on the Amendments proposed. While tlii- h is been a rough campaign for Ananias. Mr. Iscariot has happily es caped any unkind allusions. Mr. Illaine i always treated with due consideration. No Democratic candidate—no friend of a Democratic nominee should encourage a trade of a vote. All on our ticket are sure of an election if Ifemocrat* vote an uu scratched ticket. From all that we can gather anent the condition that o nfront* the Republican party iu New York that State will give Mr. Cleveland a majority of fifteen to twen ty thousand over Harri-m.

Walker made one of his characteristic speeches Saturday: all cat Virginia knows what that means, for there is 'tarcely a locality in the confines of the State where his silvery eloquence and con vincing arguments have not strengthened the ardor of the democracy and won many from the ranks of republicanism to the party of the people. More pungent wit, more scathing sarcasm than Mr. \\ alker s never unmarked republican pretenses or singed a republican candidate; and after hearing his expose of Gen. Goff wc cannot contain our admiration for that gentleman’s good sense and discretion in avoiding a joint debate.— The !£• publican State Convention was ridi culed. that party’s connection with State af fairs discussed and the record of its guber natorial candidate reviewed. Gen. Goff's remarks here on Wednesday received con siderable attention. The tariff was treated itt a ni(*st effective way, and the national candidates of both parties were not over lookcd-Geo. Harrison’s ancestral line and personal claims upon American voters were particularly considered. He ended with a magnificent comparison ol the poli cies of the two parties as represented and embodied in (irover Cleveland on the one hand and Messrs. Blaine and Carnegie on the other. A big and enthusiastic crowd listened for more than two hours and a halt, shouted till they were hoarse and laughed themselves sick. Be would repeat what we said last week that Gen. Goff is on the record as having, during hi> term in the Legislature, voted for the iniquitous test oaths—statutes that were ie«t only a blot upon the escutcheon of Best Virginia, but a stench in the nostrils of de cent p ople. Without subscribing to an oath r'nit v., : Ii:ni not borne arms against thcL. veil c>'iiM not teach a public school; you coui-in’t bring a law suit; you couldn tsit on a jury : you couldn’t practice law. Thou sand'of person- were prohibited from pur suing their peaceful avocations in life by which to gain their daily bread. And yet t!ii- *amc General Goff conus along now - eking the votes of people who were dis franchised under Republican rule and pro claiming that lie i- for protecting the people “under the broad shield of American law.’’ Rest .ration of the Republicans to power in thi-S: .tc might not relegate tt- old Con feds t all the bitterness of these past prohibitory statuti -. but other things hardly less endura ble might be thrust upon u-. He don’t want any of it. Therefore we appeal to Demo crat'to stand fast by the straight ticket ami having douc all, stand. lx‘ sure to vote against Goff-—the toplofti cal. sky-scrapable umuckamuck. Mr. Matthew Quay was popularly -up posed three months ago to be a Napoleon in strategy. This was said to be a campaign of brains and Mr. Quay was the “Bos*” Bruins of t le country. He is not regarded a* 'itch now. A short time ago he made one •! his brainy coup* d' ctat by offering a r v.ur.l of S2, t".> for the arrest and convic tion of any person violating the registry law of New York. This, of course, was dm to convince the country that the Dem ent- had inaugurated a campaign of cheat ing. and that his campaign being that of “brains,” would checkmate them. Well hi*t >\ ci k a Republican named George Gor dou was caught by a common Democratic dct. live of N w York in fraudulently reg istering and he was convicted and sent to the penitentiary.

Fairfax McLaughlin on the Pres idential Outlook. Col. J. Fairfax McLaughlin, of New York, addressed the New York Democracy in Tammany Hall on the 15th ult., in be half of the National ticket aud to judge from the enthusiastic reception he received from the braves the fires must be burning brightly in the wigwam. The speaker pro posed a resolution that Tammany should priut hundreds of thousands of the full Democratic electoral t:cket for President and Vice President, and distribute them house by house throughout the city of New York, and also that thousands of posters with the names of the Democratic electors be struck off and put up in all public pla i ces in New York. He invited the Demo cratic newspapers to print the lists conspic uously in their columns for the information of honest voters who are in danger of be ing deceived by spurious Republican bal lots bearing the names of Cleveland and Thurman at the top of the ticket as a fraud and a cheat. Col. McLaughlin declared that the most bitter and perilous contests in the whole parliamentary history of the United States had been those which bad grown out of dis putes in the electoral colleges. The Presi dency, he asserted, has been time and again endangered from 1801 when Jefferson nearly lost the electoral vote of Georgia through an error in the returns, to the foul and un paralleled fraud of 1876 when Tilden from the self-same cause was robbed of the Pres idency. Tammany he declared as the ever faithful sentinel in the great cause of Jef fersonian Democracy now gave the first sig nal note of alarm, and as the National and other Democratic committees throughout the Union will no doubt also do, offered his resolution to print the lists of Presiden tial electors in New York to prevent frauds at the polls. Col. .McLaughlin declared that while the Tammany constituencies were confident of the election of their gal lant standard-bearer Hugh J. Grant for Mayor, yet they stood ready to sacrifice every local consideration in the transcen dent battle of the age and for the election of the great captains in the great cause of Cleveland and Thurman. Mr. Cleveland, he said, had with a courage never surpassed in the history of the United States staked his fortunes and hi* political life upon the greatest i-ue of this last quarter of the nineteenth century, the expulsion of the mhher lords of monopoly and centralization from the Treasury. He had laid his bands upon the tariff juggernaut which now threatened to roll onward crushing him be neath its wheels in one common ruin with its millions of victims throughout the Re public of Washington and Jefferson and Jackson. Tammany Hall would sacrifice everything, every candidate rather than suffer national defeat in such a national cri -i* and with such standard hearers as Cleve land and Thurman. Col. McLaughlin’s speech created a great sensation and the whole Democratic press of New York re viewed it favorably the next morning. His resolution was unanimously adopted. We regret we have not room for extracts from the New York llcrahl and World. In West Virginia the voter should scan the tickets closely to prevent imposition of wrong names. Be on your guard against spuri ous tickets. Mr. Jackson, President of the Bank ol Marion, Virginia, received a circular, mark ed “private,” from Republican Committee Chairman Quay, calling upon him for mon ey—that it wa* wanted “bad.” Mr. Jackson replied: “Yours with request for subscription for campaign purposes to hand. I had hoped thi* would he a fair, square election. Your pressing demand for money leads me to be lieve your only hope is in money and mis representation of facts to the people. High protection fosters combinations, permits mo nopolies. unsettles business and concentrates capital in the hand' of the few to the detri ideiit of the many. Under the present tariff t! < i» u lml. • ruvoiiiin nf 11 % 4^ irfiviffnmi'lit not forgetting the unnecessary surplus, is paid by every individual, not in proportion to what he i> worth, but in proportion to what he but s. and as 1 am one of the masse? it is not to my interest to build up the few and pull down the many. I am opposed to a consolidated government, and in favor of that government that nearest equalizes all in benefits and burthens—that government that gift s the greatest amount of liberty pos sible. In a word. 1 am for Cleveland and Thurman.” The joint debate between lion. H ni. L. Ill Non and Gen. Goff at Coal Valley passed off without discourteous interruption of the speakers. The livgiikr correspondent says : “The Democrats were largely in the ma jority in the audience, and if they had so de sin i could have made it very unpleasant for the Little General and his claquers, but they preferred to leave that work to Mr. 111 Ison a id he performed it in a most artistic man ner. With a lair field and a free tight, he h It Gen. Goff without an inch of ground un der him. lie had him lame from thebegin ning. The Great 1 Am was riddled as he never ha* been before in a joint debate in this Mate. Mr. Wilson was on his mettle and the array of argument, weighty eloquence and scathing -arcasm was irresistible. (*off> sophistries as to the tariff tax that had built up “bis country,” protected ‘"his peo ple," and made "his home” free and happy wt re torn to pieces, and exposed in all their ridiculous nakoine—. Mr. Wilson showed that Got!-did not attempt to back upasin gle assertion that he made with facts. He did not and could not be induced to discuss the Senate bill, and refused to be led off of the ground of broad generalities, and even this scanty support was cut clear from under bis feet.” The Wheeling Rtgi<f-r on Monday gave a rcrbafini report of the joint debate between Hou. Wm. L. Wilson and Gen. Goff, and a much largi r audience than appeared in the .Wheeling rink will read and ho able to judge of the comparative merits of the speeches. We -ay "comparative,” but really there is no comparison—but the contrast is wide, indeed. Wilson made a statesmanlike speech. Goff’s was the harangue of adem tr. atment received by Mr. Wilson at Wheel-4 agogue. Jeffi rson will rebuke the scurvy ing. Mr. ( . ■.!'•; r!: w:W ... K | iddicau j and at one time .Secretary of the Senate, writes of ”1; ine as follows: 1 all of Mr Couklings public career after Mr Iihiine was to him—" Like a ar, bl:;-r ing his wholesome brother.” » HARRISOX’S COXTEMPT LOR LA BOR. Proof that he Declared $1a Oay teas Enough Fora U'orklnytnan. The Indianapolis Journo/kept a standing reward of $20,000 in its columns for many weeks for proof that Gen. Harrison ever said that “$1 per day was enough for a workingman, and were he the Governor of Indiana he would shoot down the strikers or force them back to work." Edwin h. Gould, a Knight of Labor of Indianapolis, having collected statements from 15 men, who say they heard Gen. Harrison make the remark, in question, will demand the $2U,000 from the Journal proprietors. Would it not be possible to arrange for ano ther discussion in Wheeling between Mr. M il son and Gen. Goff? Next Saturday would be a good time. The Intelligencer will undertake to raise a fund to defray all expenses, so that it shall not cost the Democratic Committee one cent.—Intelligencer. The editor of the Intelligencer is, doubtless, mortified by the misbehavior of the Republi cans at the joint debate on Saturday for he witnessed the unparalleled discourtesy to our distinguished fellow-citizen. The \V heeling Register promptly seconds the proposition, but says the democrats will defray the expenses, and guarantees, if Gen. Goff is willing to ac cede to the suggestion, that he (Goff) “shall receive entirely courteous and respectful treat ment.” Gen. Goff was to blame for the dis courtesy to Mr. Wilson on Saturday. By the wave of his hand he could have commanded silence of the ruffians who interrupted Mr. Wilson—but he didn't do anything to still the tempest. It wasn’t part of the programme for him to interpose in behalf of decorum and de cency. The rowdy element which took pos session of the hall only did what it was taken there to do except that itover-did it. Voters of Jefferson will rebuke Gen. Goff for that out rage on Tuesday next. Twenty thousand business men inarched through (he rain and mud in New York city on Saturday afternoon and were re viewed by President Cleveland from a stand erected opposite the Worth monument, at Madison Square. Great enthusiasm pre vailed. Mayor Abram S. Hewitt had a pleasant chat with the President on. the stand. Sheriff Grant, the Tammany can didate f«»r mayor, and Mr. Hewitt shook hands, Mr. Hewitt remarking, “This is not across the bloody chasm.” Col. \\ illiam G. Rice.Gov. Hill’s secretary, called on President Cleveland and presented the Gov ernor's compliments and his regrets that he could not be present at the review with the President on account of an engagement to speak at Herkimer. The second joint debate between Hon. Wm. L. Wilson and Gen. Goff took place at Wheeling Saturday*afternoon. Six thou sand persons were present. The correspon dent of the Baltimore Sun says ; “Mr. Wilson got nothing like fair play from the Republican majority in (be ball. In fact, be was interrupted with yclN, jeers, derisive laughter and every device imagina ble, which was calculated to confuse and worry him.” Jefferson county will rebuke such dis courtesy next \ Tuesday. We ask 1,500 majority. In can be done if every Demo crat will but do bis duty. The Philadelphia Record has just un earthed the fact that two of the loudest Re publican sbriekers for the protection of American labor in its city, Messrs. \\ ana maker and Dolan, own and operate large factories in Germany, the products of which they sell here. They cry aloud against the injurious effect the competition of cheap foreign labor has upon the labor of this country, while at the very same time they deprive the latter of employment by hav ing their work done abroad, and by the cheap labor of Germany. Maj. C. II Knott, the democratic nominee for State Senator, was prevented Com attend ing the Barbecue last week by a severe cold threatening pneumonia. We hope he will soon be, if not already, restored to health.— There is a good deal of enjoyment in store for him next week. There isn’t a man on the ticket who has more at heart all the best intor es*s of the people than Maj. Charley Knott and in the councils of the State his votes will meet approval. His election by a handsome major ity is a foregone conclusion, but that is no rea son why any democrat should relax effort to roll up his majority to the 1100 which we are striving to give to National, State, District and local ticket. Vote a straight ticket. The attempt of the Republicans to pack the building in which the Wilson-GofTde bate was held at Wheeling, by summoning all the Republican clubs within twenty miles to block the doorway and gain first entrance, may not be without its effect on the election. Wilson paralyzed Goff and exposed the high-tarifT fraud before an au dience two thirds Republican—and if any votes were changed, we venture to predict the result will be Democratic gain. It doesn’t matter that we will give fourteen hundred majority in this County on Tuesday. It is the individual duty to vote and make it fourteen hundred and one. Every man should vote as if the result depended upon himself a lone—as if the complexion of the Administra tion, the next House of Representatives and Senate is to be decided by his own vote. Do not content yourself with the thought of what the other thousands may do. The man that scratches a ticket to that extent consents to the defeat of his party. “Vim, Vigor, Victory.”—Huntington Commercial. Alliteration seems to be a favorite pas time with our friend Gibson. Why not try it tliusly : “Harrison’s Hopeless Huckster ing,” or “Goff Gone Glimmering.” We | are something of an alliterator ourself.— Fayette Democrat. It is conceded by his opponents that liar- , rison will go down to Harlem in New York with at least 60,000 majority.—Harper’* Ferry Sentinel. '• And if he does not do better than that ' Cleveland will have 20,000 majority in the State. , A Martin-burg special to the New York 1 World says : "No man in public life to-day has reached the high-water mark of dis- , tinction more rapidly and deservedly than i i Hon. Wm. L. Wilson, aud this solely by ! the force of his intellect.” A bet of $30 to $25 that Fleming would be i elected wa3 made in Charlestown Wednesday. I Death of Mrs. Mattie E. Gallaher. Erom the Cumberland Time* October lath. For some weeks past, at the residence of her father, Mr. James J. McHenry, in this city, Mrs. Gallaher has been critically ill, of a complication of diseases dating back some years. This morning at 1:45 death came to her release. Calmly and without a struggle, in the full possession ot all her faculties, surrounded by mother and lather, she welcomed him. The deceased was the third daughter of Mr. Jas. J. and Martha A. McHenry, was born in this city 33 years ago, and was of gentle disposition and greatly beloved. In girlhood she became a regular attendant upon St. Patrick’s Catholic church and was unremitting in her religious duties. In 1870 she became a pupil at Mount de Clian tal, near Wheeling West Va., and was ed ucated there, as were all of Mr. McHenry’s daughters. On February 2d, 18S2, she was married to Mr. Carter Gallaher, at St. Patrick’s church. For some years they kept house here, Mr. Gallaher managing the Campbell drug store on Baltimore street. Last Jan uary a year ago her health became so im paired that housekeeping was abandoned and she has since lived with her parents at their home, No. 1* South Centre street, Mr. Gallaher being in business in Wash ington, D. C. On Sunday night Mr. Gallaher was com pelled to go to Washington and did not reach this city until 3 o’clock this after noon. He was accompanied by Mr. James A. McHenry, brother of the deceased. One child about 5 years old, survives her, and is with its grand parents. The funeral and Recpiiem Mass takes place on Saturday morning at St. Patrick’s church, with interment in SS. Peter and Paul’s ceinetry. Itev. E. J. Wunder will Democratic Prospects In West Virginia, Mr. Hutchinson, private Secretary to Sen ator Kcnna, arrived here yesterday from a long jaunt through West Virginia, where the Senator has been making a series of cam paign speeches. Mr. Hutchinson says the outlook in that State i- as bright as can be, from a Democratic standpoint. Senatoi Kcnna has traveled over almost every foot oi ground in the State, and addressed the peo ple on the great issue of the day. The peo ple are all clamoring for a reduction of “tlu tax,” as they call it, and they promise to give Cleveland and Thurman a majority of from 6,000 to 8,000. Mr. Kcnna has made a speech in almost every legislative district in the State, and he has conferred with every Democratic candidate for the Legislature, and estimates the Democrats will have a ma jority on joint ballot in that body of from sixteen to twenty one.— II’ashington Corres pondent 0/ Sun. The British Minister having practically endorsed gross reflections upon the conduct of this government, and being no longer ac ceptable to the administration, and his gov ernment having failed to recall him as re quested, the President has notified him that he must go. Foreign interference with oui domestic affairs will not be tolerated. Tht President’s action is approved by every pa triot in the land. Col. IPard H. Laraon, for merly private secretary to President Lin coln, said Tuesday night that it was useless for any one to try and deny the fact that President Cleveland has by his act to-day not only won back the Irish vote, but has also won the admiration of every true Amer ican citizen. Looking at the subject from a political standpoint, Mr. Lamon says it will surely strengthen the President in the New England States, and it looks as though lie has completely unset the Republican calcu lations. Spiking a Bulldozer. A northman by the name of Johnson, who has been getting out hickory ax and hatchet handles in this county, told his hands on the day of the barbecue, we are reliably informed, that he was going home that night, and if Har rison should be elected he would pay them $1.25 per day, but that if Cleveland was elect ed he would suspend further work in his line altogether. This was said to influence the votes of his laborers, but it didn't pan out well, as Mr. John F. Bell, of this county, who deals largely in the same class of timber, promptly informed the laborers that lie would give eve ry one of them $1.2o for the same work if Cleveland is elected.—Clarke Courier. The Republicans have had much to say about Free Trade, which is not an issue in this contest—unless it be a false issue. They will have less to remark upon Free Speech— the American citizen’s prerogative—ince they denied it to our distinguished fellow ciiizen, Hon. W. L. Wilson, at Wheeling.— The voters of Jefferson, regardless of party proclivities, ought to rebuke the discourtesy —the outrage, to put it more mildly. The value of a comma : Horace Greely said “ Go West,” and young men turned their steps toward the setting sun. Grover Cleveland said “ Go, West,” and Sackville, the British Minister is preparing to pack his kit, and the good Lord and the Ameri can people are pleased. He goes at the bid ding of a President that doesn’t tolerate foreign trifling with our domestic affairs.— Nothing wrong about Grover’s vertebra. Rail rand Connection to Berkeley Sp'ngs.
