Seuator Kenna will do his part in the West Virginia cauvass, and do it well. He will make all the speeches his physical con dition will permit. It is not improbable the remarks ot Mr. Dingley, of Maine, when Mr. Kilgore, of Texas, suddenly opened the lobby door, will be excluded from the Record.

The Huntington Commercial, republican, refuses to support Hon. C. B. Smith, pres ent congressman ocupyiug Judge Jackson’s seat and republican uomiuee, on the ground of Smith’s incapacity! The Republican Congress is turning out some excellent work at the big Law Facto ry.—Loudoun Telephone. Yes; turning out some of “the noblest work”—honest men, from seats to which they were duly elected. A statistician has estimated that court ships average three tons of coals each, but be hadn’t ibe temerity to figure on the amount of genuine happiness even one cou ple, in dead earnest, could get out of a win ter's cogitations in front of an old-time hickory back-log. The Mountain Echo, Republican,—whose editor is the Republican candidate for the State Senate to succeed Hon. Geo. E. Brice —is pleased that Fud McGinniss, coutest aut for Alders on’s seat in Congress, was not re-uominated. *“ Fud ” was a failure Irom the beginning, it seems. The Chaplain of the House of Represent atives, in his prayer ou Monday morning, facing the democratic side of the chamber, prayed for the welfare of the abseut mem bers. Mr. O'Ferrall was the only democrat present. He can chase a thousand, and with Crisp can put ten thousand to Might. No wonder Speaker Reed looked reprov ingly at the Republican members who sang me swm i»ye-anu-i»ye sitting in meir S.ats in the House while the Democrats filibustered against the unseating of Vena ble. Speaker Reed and his associates have little to look forward to in the sweet bye and-bye of Congressional life. The Wheeling jHttlligenrtr with its accus tomed desire to deal in original things—that is things that nobody else than its editors or correspondent dreams of attempted to make it appear that there was great trouble in the Democratic camp in Berkeley and that the County Convention was inharmonious. The Stat'imnn D our authority for saying that “it was no sueli a thing.” The Republican papers are booming Mr. Harman, candidates for Congress, for his "gentlemanly bearing and good honest face.’’ It may be all right to give him his “face value,” hut there’s a thing or two under the surface that the ploughshare of a political canva-s may turn up to discount him ser iously in this district. He may be “very good looking, but he can’t get iu.” Think of it: during Mr. Cleveland’s term the treasury was overflowing with money and he wautetl a reform in the tarilT so that excessive taxes should not be squeezed out of the parses of the people. He did uot think the government should have an in come beyond what a prudent administra tion of affairs demanded. Now that great surplus has been expended, a deficit stares the government in the face, and additional tariff duties will he demanded to meet prodi gal expenditures ; and the Secretary of the Treasury is buying bonds at a heavy pre mium, and eveu pre paying interest to re lieve a money stringency in New York, the outcome of pending republican legislation ! Things have come to a pretty pass when the farmers of the West and Northwest must mortgage their farms and their plows at 7 and $ per cent, iutere't iu order to get money enough to tide them over a bad crop year, while the fatherly Government at Washing ton voluntarily supplies the luxurious wants of the Wall-street speculators bv paying them a year's interest in advance on its own bonds. The farmers of the country can cor rect this sort of thing by voting the Demo cratic ticket, and in n<> other way. There is no political salvatiou for the laboring man, be he on farm or iu shop, or iu uiiue or manufactory, or engaged in any of the; great building trades or avocations of life, i except thro’ the Democratic part)-. 1 Sixty white Republicans met in one of i the wards of Richmond one day last wet endorsed ex-Gov. Cauierou’s letter, renouc ing his allegiance to the Republican party, aud determined to follow the ex-Governor out of the party. Mr. Dasbell, a leading Republic n of the city, to whom the letter referred to was written, says ho and hun dreds of others will aUo leave the party; that all that is left of the white Republican parly in Richmond “is a crowd of scalawags, office-holders and office-seekers, and that it Anauias could come to Richmond and lead the Republican party in that city he would give tone to it. Messrs. Stump, Rusk, Rayner and Comp ton received the Democratic nominations for Congre-s in the second, third, fourth aud fifth districts of Maryland ou Wednesday. Messrs. 8tump aud Rusk are members of the present Congress, lion. Isidore Ilay ner, who made a brilliant record in tbe til tieth Congress, was defeated tor re election by a small plurality two years ago, aud Hon. Barues Compton was deprived by the Re publican majority of the seat to which he was elected. The sixth district convention at Hagerstown on Thursday completed the list by nominating unanimously Mayor Mc Kaig of Cumberland as McComas’s oppo nent. The Rev. George Harman was selected to oppose Mr. Wilson for Congress because he Harman) is a member of the Alliance. But that wuu't work. The farmers and the Farmers’ Alliance know that W in. L. iN son is a true advocate of their cause, and a much abler man than the Rev. George Ilariuan. Pendleton Xtics. It is all a mistake about Mr. Harman be longing t<» the Farmers’ Alliance. He is uot a member; and we are told by a person well acquainted with Mr. llaruian that when the Alliance was first organised iu Graut county that lie opposed it.—Moortfield Ex aminer. In addition u> Senator Faulkner’s ap pointments to speak at Huntington ou the 20th, and Wayne C.

The Charleston <laz-‘tte says: “By the way, we are glad to note that Senator Faulkner is doing some valuable service in the campaign and that all his speeches thus far have been highly complimented.” Certainly no man would vote lor Geo. Hannan simply because he is a farmer. Mr. Harman is one of the rankest of high pro tectionists. He endorses the McKinley bill, the Lodge force bill, and every offensively partisan act ever committed by his party— ye-<, even eudorses the tvranical actions of Czar Reed. Can any true Democrat vote for such a man? Think about these things, Democrats, before you allow the cry of “farmer” to lead you astray.—Moore field Exam uter. Congrc'Siuau Dingley, of Maine, had his nose badly bruised the other day. During a vote the Democrats began to go out in irder to break a quorum, and the doors were jrdered t > be locked. Mr. Kilgore, of Tex as, kicked a dooor open just as Mr. Dingley was approaching on the other side—hence the brui't '. So the Maine statesman has his colleague, Reed, and the Republican rules to blame for the disaster. Our esteemed contemporary, the 47n/inia Fro- Preof Charlestown, has entered upon its eightieth year, “yet is not its eyed.mined nor its natural force abated.’ Barring its bourbon polities it is a good paper, and we hope to take part celebrating its centennial. We hope, however, that it will have learned sum ■ things which it has uot yet found out, and will be. at that time, a sound Republi can paper. —Mountain E<mho. The Republican Sta;. committee of Indi ana, after the manner of the Pretorian guard, has just assessed the Republican candidate for treasurer of that State $3,500, the auditor iQ, and the other candidates on the State ticket proportionate sums. Of course the candidates for such places as warrant assess ments like the above must have rich expec tation- of honor and emolument—especially emolument. Mr. Harman in thanking the convention at Piedmont for the empty honor conferred ou him. and to -how his appreciation and submission to the powers that be, said that he would visit every county in the State.

Wilson, having been chal- ' longed to meet a distinguished Republican Congressman in joint discussion at several points in New York State, he was unable to address the Democracy of Hampshire coun ty, but he was ably substituted by Congress man Bland of Missouri. The Romney Re view speaks in eulogistic terms of the speech of the great Missourian. The Review says Mr. Bland apoligiz d for the absence of Hon. Wm. L. Wilson, for whom he answer ed, by stating that lie was now in New York engaged in joint discussion with one of the ablest meu in the Republican party on the tariff question. In reference to Mr. Wilson, be said that not a Democrat nor a Republi can in Congress stood higher in the estima tion of Congres-meu and Senators as an orator, scholar and legislator. The people of Hampshire were appealed to in the strongest terms to return Hon. Wm. L. Wilson to Congress, because we need men of power and influence and those who are unpurchaseable aud able to with stand the temptations thattbe moneyed pi J* trocrats throw around them in the halls ot Congress and he knows Mr. \Y ilson to be such a man. Mr. Bland says Mr. \\ iison is the best man in the House and is more fear ed by Speaker Reed than any other man. The Winchester District of the Baltimore Conference of the M. E. Church, South, re cently in session at Front Royal, considered the projectof establishing within the bounds of the District Conference a school of high graue as leeuer w iucii gfiruv vumvu Randolph-Macon, and for the education oi Methodist boys. The Land Improvement Company of Front Royal and Riverton pro posed, if they would select Front Royal as the site of the school, to donate a five acre lot, clcgible for said purpose, and to give $5,000, if the balance of $20,000 should be raised by the Church, or $25,000 if $100,000 should be the sum fur such establishment. The Improvement Company at Middletown, Frederick county, made au offer of fifteen acres for tho site—beautiful for situation, and $1,000 in cash, and one hundred and sixty building lots, the minimun value of which would be $10,000, and uo conditions save the establishment of the school there. Surely these are munificent offers, and well to-do layman of the church aught to be prompt to supply the means necessary to enable the church authorities to fall in with one or the other of them. An early day has appointed for the meeting of a committee to consider these propositions. The Charleston Star says: “the legislative session next winter will be one of business. There is no United States Senutor to elect and no gubernatorial contest to decide. It is important that the people be represented by men of good, cool, calm judgment, who understand their wants and know best how to provide for them.” It i# important, and it is also important that the said men of judgment be taken from the Democratic party.

Black,of Jefferson, De nounce* the Lodge Bill and Pays Ills Respects to Reed—.1 Kinging Dec laration of Honest Sentiment. Special Telegram to the Register. Charlestown, W. Va , September 10. —Slowly and surely the iniquities ot the in famous force bill, the McKinley tariff mon strosity, and the outrageous course of the Republican majority in Congress are swell ing the tide of honest and decent public sen timent into a flood that will be turned with j mighty force against the perpetrators ot these outrages. In this home of pure De mocracy, and only a few miles removed from the Natioual Capital, it is natural that pop- j ular disgust and anger at the recent dis- | plays of partisan malignity should be more j apparent; and in the county of Jefferson at, least, however it may be in other sections of West Virginia, that disgust is not only felt by conservative business classes of the Republican party, but even by men who have been active as party leaders, and have been honored in party councils. No man stands higher as a Republican than Cap tain 0. W. Z. Black, of this place. Captain Black is a Union veteran who followed the flag during four years of the war. He is a member of the Republican Congressional Committee, and was chairman of the Repub lican Congressional Convention at Piedmont that recently nominated that grizzled old follower of the Hon. Stephen B. Elkins, Mr. George F. Harmon, of Grant. There have beeu many quiet rumors, that Captain Black’s support ot tne recent ltepuoucau legislation was not of a very enthusiastic character, and a Regiater representative de termined to sift them to the bottom. Cap tain Blnck was not only willing but eager to add his voice to the general condemna tion of the measures passed by his own party, and he talked with force and earnestness, lie said “I regard the election hill that recently passed the House and now pending in the Seuate as impolitic, unwise and dangerous to the peace and safety of the country. The race question in the South is ono of the most difficult that ever confronted any people. I take it that no patriotic American wants to seo any State in the Union Africanized. Safety to the property, homes and civiliza tion of the South depends on the supremacy of the Anglo-Saxon race. The great race problem is now being worked out slowly but surely. The Southern people have shown themselves possessed of moderation and magnanimity in the highest degree; and the application of such a measure as the Lodge bill, will tear open all sores, and re vive sectional hate. It is an effort to de grade the South, and in some measure re duce her to the condition of a subject colo ny.” “What measure if any would you sug gest?” The only solution of the race problem in the South is to trust in the intelligence and patriotism of the Southern people; and the correcting influence of the new energy and enterprise that have gone into that section. The South has a great era of prosperity be fore it. It would be a National calamity; it would be a National crime to take any step that might mar her brilliant prospects. The people of the South must eventually di vide on economic questions, and the colored people are already becoming better educat ed. These influences will in a few years settle peacefully pud quietly what all the Lodge bills ever framed and bayonets ever forged eau never settle.” “What effect do you think the Force bill and kindred legislation will have on West Virginia politics?” “So far as our immediate section is con cerned, I regret to say that I am convinced the result will be disastrous to our party. I know that it has injured the Republicans and solidfied and encouraged the Democrats of Jefferson county. The negro vote is prac tically solid for the Republicans, and it is cast without intimidation. There is no noed for the Force bill in our section or in any other parts of West Virginia, and we do not want it.” and his course?’’ ‘‘In my judgment Mr. Heed is not broad enough of mind or safe enough in leadership to guide the destinies of the Republican party or to control legislation. I am not ono of those who rejoice that the House has ceased to be a deliberative body. Under the leadership of Mr. Reed, the functions of the great representative body have been virtu ally centered in three men, who constitute the majority of the Committee on Rules. They meet and determined from day to day what shall be considered, and who shall speak in the House. Debate is stifled and the rights of the* members to discuss public measures are trampled on. The rights of the minority in our legislative halls should be scrupulously guarded if we hope to pre serve free institutions, and this, I do not think, has been done. There may be no danger in having a tyrant if he is amia ble, just and conservative, but Mr. Reed’s tyranny over the House has shown the absence of just those qualities. Reed is pre judiced against the b’outh. He docs not be lieve iu or understand our people. The Re publican party cannot afford to allow him to draw it further into purely sectional and partisan measures. If it does a large por tion of the country will bo alienated.” “How do you regard Mr. Blaine and his reciprocity ideas?” “I look upon Mr. Blaine as the greatest living American, and hope to see his views on reciprocity with South American Repub- I lies prevail. The day is now at baud when ‘ the American people will be obliged to seek '■ new markets for their product#. Mr. Blaine I has shown himself a statesman in his recent proposals, and I repeat that I hope they will , be accepted and the tendency to unju-t and excessive tarifT taxation checked.” The frank and earnest manner in which | Captain Black gives exnres-ion to the above ! views has caused a great deal of uneasiness I among the good hrethren in this section. It will be interesting to know what ‘‘Con- ; gressinen” C. B. .t;mith and G. W. Aikin- | son, the beneficiariss of Czar Reed’s fraud, md the supporters of the Force bill think af the expressions of one of their prominent i West Virginia brethren. * 1 Iff 11/ l/MUMI «/'• ---»' Don t v»u think your children are trou bled with Worms?
