The World’s Fair directors have decided
to close the gates on Sundays hereafter—not
on high moral grounds but because it does
not pay to keep them open.
The fellow-feeling that ought to wist be
tween two eminent sutesmen-out-of-a-job
doesn’t seem to make John James Ingalls
and Whitelaw Reid wondrous kind to each
other. _____

The San Flan cisco Examiner offers $2o

Rev. C. Herbert Richardson preached
Sunday night in Monumeut Street Metho

Hon. Hoke Smith has been made an

Gov. MacCorkle and ten members of bis
stafl were at Berkeley Springs last week.—
The baths were not discolored by such a
clever representation of West \ irginia

If the World’s Fair does nothing more
than it has already done by way of demon
strating the reverence of the American peo
ple for the Sabbath day, it will go down in
to history as a success.
The steamship Spree from Bremen has
just landed sixteen profeasors, who will visit

Chicago modes of life.
We see the suggestion in our exchange*
that President Cleveland, having a vacancy
on the Supreme Bench to fill, may “follow
the example of President Harrison in ap
pointing a Democrat. W e feel almost
•ure that he will do that very thing.
The Republicans ueed not congratulate
themselves o'ermuch because Mr. t levelaud
had a tooth drawn. He has a few more
left, and he will demonstrate that fact when
he gets back to Washington aud bites the
red tape from some packages of applica
tions for office that have been tiled duriug
his vacation. Aud the way he will jump
with both feet ou some unworthy office
holders will be proof that the rheuinatiz is
a thing of the past.

The Free Pres* wants Judge K. B.
Faulkner to fill the vacancy caused by
death, in the United States Supreme Court.
He is a good man, and were it not for one
thing, we would throw up both hands and
yell, Faulkner !! but we shall in the
sweet by and by have a case before that
august “sleepy” body, and Judge Faulkner
might “awake” the “duffers” and suataiu
his previous act.—Pione<r /Vrw.
Lawyer Clifford must have a very ques
tionable case if he is unwilling to have “a
good man” to sit in judgment upon it.—
Besides, Lawyer Clifford ought to know
that it is not customary for Judges to sit in
cases appealed Irom them.
■ ♦ ♦ ♦
Judge Faulkner, of Berkeley county, is
an excellent judge. An excellent judge
would make an excellent governor.—Shep
SmUtovcn Rrgiiter.
The above statement is a patent fact.
The West Virginia Ifemocrata entered theii
caveat when they nominated Judge Fleming
for governor, and we had a model governor.
We will not say that Judge Faulkner will
be au Improvement, but he would come up
to all the specifications for a first-class ex
ecutive of a first-class State. But Mr.
Cleveland may demand his services in some
important function long before we are ready
to release him from the Judgeship of the
lorn virwuib.
It is understood that fHuart W. Walkei

No mau has succeeded Heury (.’lay as the

haa not been especially mentioned a» the
successor of the great Kentuckian. And il
ia a noble ambition in the breast ot any
young man in this district some day to be
kuown as the successor of Hon. Win. L
Wilson We do not believe it has entered
the mind of Hon. Stuart \V. Walker, 01
any other man in the Democratic party ol
this district, to “contest” with Hou. Win

It is not to the discredit of Mr. Walker tc
aspire to the place when vacated by Mr
Wilson.

Referring to an editorial in l**t week's issut
the Charlestown Frtt Frn» has the following
to say
Editor Clifford has failed iu his enumera
tion to mention that John Brown's first vic
tim at Harper’s Ferry was an industrious, in
offensive colored man. If Moses and Hanni
bal and Cleopatra were negroes because they
were natives of Africa, what is Editor Clifford
because he was born in America—a red Indian
No, we are a mixture of Indian white and
Negro. It is a self-evident fact—much as1
and are tour, and we are the best type of an
American, opposed to anarehy. lynchlaw, race
discrimination, loyal to the flag and a lover
of the country over which it floats. Will Ed
itor Gallaher tell us what right he has to u*«
“ Afro-American.” Is it not a misnomer *
As to that “ industrious, inoffensive colored
man” we rather take sides with John Brown
i. e. if Brown considered him offensive enough
to be killed, we have no fault to find.—Fhmtti
Prts*.
What a mongrel mix ' It ought to militaU
against Editor Clifford's posing as a Negro witl)
a big N. He does himself injustice, claiming
to be “an American, opposed to anarchy
lynch law.” etc., by approving John Brown
It is rather unsafe to say that any man may
arrogate to himself the right to kill because
he has it in his mind that a man is “offensive
enough to be killed.” His killing of Hay ward
Shepard was an unprovoked murder, and Ed
itor Clifford is the only mau. to oar knowl
edge, who ha* had the temerity to publicly
approve it. This justifies us in the belief that
he is. what he claims to be. part Indian,—
therefore an Afro-American. The term Afro
AjLueri.au has boon much used by Editor Clif
fcrd.

Ex-Senator Ingalls and ex-Minister Reid
hare each other by the goatee, to the indnite
diversion of the American people. Ingalls
began it. In one of those spicy and lucra
tive syndicate newspaper articles whereby
the iridescent Kansan relieves his overflow
| ing genius and obtains bis bread since bis
j involuntary retirement from the halls of
I legislation, he has just reviewed Editor
! Reid’s late candidacy for the vice-presiden
cy, describing Mr. Reid himself as uxori
ous” and "an aristocrat,” criticizing his
dress aud manners, aud making reference to
bis difficulties with union printers and his
I supercilious insults to laboring men. Ihe
ex-candidate being interviewed pleads va
riously to the different indictments, conclu
ding, in response to the charge of aristoc
racy,” etc., with the following lauguage—
not so choice, perhaps, as the barbed phrases
of the ex-Senator, but spirited aud, in its
way, eloquent:
“The rest of Mr. Ingalls’complaint seems
to be that in other particulars also I act l'ke
a gentleman. Well, out in Kausas they
did not bring that accusation against him.
And yet, whea be was last a candidate, al
though he abaudoned his supposed princi
ples and crawled in the dirt before them,
Mrs. Lease and Mr. Peffer thrust him into
the gutter. He has been lying there ever
since, spouting mud and bad language.
“What can be bis motive for the attack .
pursued the reporter.
“How do I kuow ; and what's the good
of guessiug? He seems to lack employ
ment since he was tbrowu out of office
holding, and I suppose the mau must make
a living by lecturing or writing for the syn
dicates.”

The Washington correspondent of the
Alexandria Gtuette last Thursday wrote:
“Senator Faulkuer, of West Virgiuia, is
here to-day. Ho says he has no doubt the
Sherman silver bill will be repealed at the
I coming session of Congress and that, too,
without much delay, as the knowledge that
more than one hundred million ounces of
silver bullion are now stored in the Treas
urv and are being added to at the rate of
four million aud a-half a month, the whole
of which may be thrown upon the market
at once, aud thus make silver comparative
ly valueless, is sufficient of itself alone to
induce eveu the most pronounced silver
men to vote for the repeal. He says the
rules of the last House will, if readopted,
enable the friends of the repeal to effect
their object without further change. Mr.
Faulkner also says the tariff bill should by
all means be taken up at the coming session,
and that if the ways and menus committee
have such a bill prepared by the time the
vote on the silver bill be reached, there will
be no recess but that Congress will proceed
to cousider and pass it at once, so that the
people cau judge of its practical effects be
fore the next congressional election, which
otherwise they would he unable to do.”

A curious antithetic used in China has
recently been made kuown. It is obtained
by placing a frog in a jar of dour and irri

properties. After the finger has been im

The Moorefield Examiner has found veut
for a good deal of suppressed wrath and in

better:
“At last, after much worry and a good
deal of cussing, the miserable skunk who
has been mixing our mails up for the last
four years has been removed and the office
will again pass into decent hands, and it is
hoped that our people will never be cursed
with such a conglomerate mass of jrrors
and ignorance again.”

Xperience is an xpensive lesson tn time
and money—but evry one who starts in
busines ideas must go thru the gauntlet,
and not one of a hundred escape unscathed.
Most are cripled for life—bav no pluk to

unhappy unfortionate into whos vitals am

Liliputisns from the ruins of Church street
to the Babel of Broadway—fools call it luck,
piety the Lord ; al the same, it was simply
the four titanic leters of the English tung
—I will. The fellow loded to the brim
with this metal finds it a plesur to say to
his old time friends who always go trust,
“Too busy with cash trade, no time to talk,
I’ve buried the Ledger,” and when the ne
gotiable uote fiend butonholes him for his
autograf he answers in that other leviathan
of the Kuglish language of two leters—No.
I always want the first chance at the
young beginer just starting out into the

to show him how esy.quik aud solid the rite

this author is the original advocate. I wil

At the end of his first day’s magnificent

unable to sleep, and la iu xtacy of tbaut ol

xiety bad given wa to the thrill and throb
of ambition. Where he had hesitated
about risking al he had in the world, where
ther was so much competition, "hard times”
and ‘‘tile tootin,” now he felt like a Koval
Bengal Tiger, master of the situation—in

be a hard thing to keep him up to his per
fect filing pitch. The truth is lie realized
