wTw.B. QALLAHBR. Editor._ Char leotoien.Jefferoon County. Weot Va, October 4, 1893.__ Senator Y’oorhee* asserts that there will b* no comproiui-e on the repeal bill and that unconditional repeal will be pressed in the senate until a vole is taken. FetTer, Stewart and a few other politicians of that kidney in the Senate are prodigal of words on the silver question, lbeir speech es are not flat Rather, flatulency prevails. They are not worth a farthing. Fred Douglass complains because no ne gro woman was a member ot the board of lady managers of the Chicago lair. If they had chosen bis wife it wouldn’t have mend ed matters much, as she is white. The most valuable metal in the world is aaid to be gailiura. quoted at $3,250 an ounce. How would that do for a standard, since there is so much opposition to gold . Where would silver be at 58 cents an ounce? Gen. Fitz Lee will take the stump Octo ber 10th and, except Sundays, will express himself in behalf of Col. O’Ferrall and the genuine Democracy until the eve of election day. He will spend it effectively, of course. It behooves Gov. MacCorkle, now that he has the entire Slate militia at Camp Kenna. to have it form a hollow square and place himself in the middle of it for defense against the press on his protection position. The Martinsburg World has passed into the hands of Mr. J. F. Thomson. Mr. Aler having retired, the editorial and local con duct of that journal has been assumed by Capt. W. B. Colston.

Miss Livia Simpson, of the Point Pleas ant Gazette, says an exchange, was arrested in her city last Friday, taken before the mayor aud fined for riding ou the sidewalk.

Representative Wheeler, of Alabama, has prepared a bill authorising a W orld's Ex position to be held in the city of New York in 1900, in observance of the beginning of the twentieth century of the Christian era; to be regulated by the New Y ork legislature The measure is to be of uo etfect unlev the New York legislature acts upon the matter within three months after its next meeting On Saturday Seuator Camden made a temperate argument in favor of the repeal of the Sherman act, but with the clear un derstanding that the repeal should not pro duce a contraction of the tuonev now in circulation. He expressed the belief that although bemetallism was not practicable under present conditions, the free coinage of silver would be withiu a decade restored, not only in this country, but in England and Europe. The Democrats of Massachusetts have Dominated Hon. John E. Russell, ex-mem ber of Congres-*, to succeed the present Governor Russell. The uoniinee is a life long Democrat, a very able and accomplish ed man, and one of the best stump speakers in the country. He made a brilliant record in Congress, having been elected from a Republican district on the tariff-reform is sue. Everybody remembers his eloqueut speeches in Charles Town in 1888. Gov. MacCorkle claims that his position on the coal question before the ways and means committee has been misrepresented. His views, filling two or three columns, are before us, and though the space at cur command does not admit of the pub lication of the entire statement of His Ex cellency, wherein he claims that he is in perfect accord with the Democratic platform, we will endeavor, next week, iu the inter est of fair play, to give a synop-is of it. Ex-Senator Philetus lawyer was one of the bondsmen of three of the ex-State Treas urers of Wisconsin who were prosecuted for withholding the interest on State funds de posited in bank*, but he says his estate will not lose anything, as he intended to be quea h $200,000 to the State University and the State will get nearly that amount from his bonds for the treasurers and may look after the interests of the University itself, ao far as he is concerned. It is a little hard on the University. Governor Tillman, ol South Carolina, is quoted as saying, “There is but one crime for which a man should be lynched in this State.” The Governor of a State, sworn to execute its laws, ought uot to make such an assertion. There is no crime for which a man should be lynched in any State in which just laws are duly admiuistered.— There is no crime so brutal that the person accused of its commission has not the right to demand that his guilt be preved to a cer- < tainty before punishment is inflicted. And there is no crime for which lynching has been shown to be an effective remedy. [l k A LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT TO THE GOVERNOR OF GEORGIA. plea for Sound and Stable Money. "Executive Mention, Washington, Sept. 25. — Hon. W. J. Northern— My Dear Sir: I hardly know how to reply to your letter of the 15th inst. It seems to me that I am quit** plainly on record concerning the finan cial question. My letter accepting the nom ination to the presidency, when read in con nection with the message lately sent to the Congress in extraordinary session, appears to me to be very explicit. I want a curren cy that is stable and safe in the hands of our people. I will not knowingly be impli cated in a condition that will justly make me in the least degree answerable to auy la borer or farmer in the United States, for a shrinkage in the purchasing power of the dollar he has received for a full dollars worth of work or for a good dollar’s worth of the product of bis toil. I not only want our currency to be of such a character that all kinds of dollars will be of equal pur chasing power at home, but I want it to be of such a character as will demonstrate abroad our wisdom and good faith, thus placing upon a firm foundation our credit among the nations of the earth. I want our financial conditions and the laws rela ting to our currency safe and reassuring, that those who have money will spend and invest it in business and new enterprises in stead of hoarding it. You cannot cure fright by calling it foolish and unreasona ble, ami you cannot prevent the frightened niau from hoarding his money. I want good, sound and stable money and a condi tion of confidence that will keep it in use. “Within the limits of what I have writ teu I am a friend of silver, but I believe its proper place in our currency can only be fixed by a readjustment of our currency legislation and the inauguration of a con sistent and comprehensive financial scheme. I think such a thing can only be entered upon profitably and nopeiuii) auer me re peal of the law which is charged with all our financial woes. In the present state of the public mind this law caunot be built upou nor patched in such a way as to relieve the situation. “I am therefore opposed to the free and unlimited coiuage of silver by this country alone and independently, and I am in favor of the immediate and unconditional repeal of the purchasing clause of the bo cal ed Sherman act. “I confess I am astonished by the opposi tion in the Senate to such prompt action as would relieve the present unfurtuuate situa tion. “My daily pruyer is that the delay occa sioned by such opposition may not be the cause of plunging the country into deeper depression than it has yet known, and that the Democratic party may not be justly held responsible for such a catastrophe. “Yours, very truly, “Grover Cleveland.” West Virginia's Building, which is one of the most substantial and attractive State buildings on the World’s Exposition grounds, is in demand. Already several persons have indicated a desire to purchase it. One is a wealthy Pniladelphiau. He has a plantation on Indian river, Florida, and he says the building is Just what he wants. Hehasa-kel Commissioner Chancellor to fix a price on it. A wealthy lady of Park ersburg intends, iu the near future, to build a mansion, but if she can purchase the State building would prefer to do that. Govern or MacCorkle is in favor of removing the building to Charleston to be used as a mu seum, iu which will be placed the exhibits of the State at the World’s Fair. The funds for this purpose, however, would have to be appropriated by the Legislature, and there is sonto doubt expressed if this would be done.— Baltimore Sun. The Washington correspondent of the Baltimore wrote Mouday: “Senator tlllllUVDi Ul k liruiirt, icm» ” aauiugwu this afternoon for a business trip to Par kersburg. Senator Faulkner left to night for Charleston, whereon Wednesday he will act as best man for his law partner Mr. Stuart W. Walker. He will return to Washington on Thursday. This is the first time Mr. Faulkner has left Washington since the extra session convened, and even for so important duty as best man he would not have left to-night but for the existing agreement between the free silver and anti silver men that there should be nothing hut talk f<>r remainder of this week. Mr. Faulk ner has been invited to participate in the campaign ou the Eastern Shore and will do so if his public duties will permit.” During medieval times a woman who had nothing when she was married esc sped re sponsibility for her debts. Women were then often married in a single garment to relieve themselves of indebtedness. A young and noble Germ in lady of the sixteenth century, to make assurance doubly sure, had the marriage ceremony performed while she was standing in a closet, entirely divested of clothing. She put out her hand through the door and was thus married. As soon as the ceremony was performed the groom, clergyman and witnesses left the room, she came out, arrayed herself in clothes provi ded by her husband and took her place at the marriage feast. ♦ ^ ♦-- - - — All hail to Arthur Pue German 1 In one day he shows himself a loyal supporter of Cleveland, a true advocate of repeal, a smit er of silrerites and a spurner of spoils !

Little Miss Esther, the new American princess of the house of Cleveland, has a future before her that is romantic, and a career that 5S distinguished, if the por tents of the stars and the signs of the heav ens are to be trusted. Her horoscope has been cast and the whole planetary system seems to have done its prettiest to give the new baby a place in future American annals. This is what the astrologers said at the conclusion of her study. It is indeed a fortunate nativity. The baby has four planets near a con junction in the mid-heaven. She is destin ed to arrive at great eminence, to become noted and prominent like her father. She is fated to be a well made, rather tall wom an, most closely resembling her mother, of compact and graceful frame. She will be of light complexion, brown hair, with a high forehead and deep, expressive eyes, her hair will fall well back from her tem ples. Her nose will be prominent, her fea tures clean cut and dainty. The planets tell of a courteous and gentle disposition.— Good nature, mildness and charity will be her chief characteristics. The forecast of the early part of her life shows sickness and trouble of a critical sort. Up to the age of five she will be continually in delicate bealth. Though her danger in early life will be great, the sun, the giver of life, is so strong in the mid heaven, that there is little doubt but that she will live to a good old age. She will take place in public affairs, in all prob ability, and has a much better chance of becoming the first “lady of the land ’ than her older sister. Her resemblance to her mother will extend into inner characteris tics, for besides being intelligent and cul tured she will be refined in the highest de? gree and noted for her good, sound common sense. Like her mother, again, she will be a woman and have hosts of women- friends, all of whom will be very fond of her.— Wealth she is certain to acquire, if not t.hmncrh her own mental exertions, through her marriage at any rate. The planets say that this event will not t^ke place before she is 34, and that she will enter the mar ried state only once. Tbey will have no more than three children, and they are likely to be boys, but there is danger of two of them dying iu infancy. Freaks of Memory. A smart young cavalry officer was recent ly exercising his regiment upon the drill ground when the familiar words of com mand suddenly slipped from his mind, and the strenuous effort made to recall them was utterly futile. In order to cover his embarrassment he was compelled to retire irom the command under the plea of illuess. The fugitive sen tence came to him when he reached his rooms. A still more singular case is that of a well-known and esteemed merchant whose memory so treacherously failed him one morning after leaving home that he was to tally uuable to locate his offices, aud was actually compelled to inquire as to their whereabout*. Another interesting example is that of a popular novelist who had uearly finished an important work upon which he was en gaged, when a sudden failprs of memory deprived him of his plot and necessitated the laying aside of the book for more than a week ; then an association of ideas recall ed the missing plot, the novel was brought to a successful completion and enjoyed a wide circulation.— Dotfon Globe. Charlie’s mother had been troubled by a bad boy who persisted in enticing Charlie out to play with him in the alley, and as she could never get near enough to him to tell him to stay away, she sent word by her hopeful. “Well,” she said when he returned, “did you tell lmn what I said? “Yes’m," responded Charlie. "Did you tell him in plain English so he will know Just what 1 meant?" "Yes’m.” "What did you say to him ?” “I said: ‘Look here, you chump, my mother says it' she gets her flippers on to you once she’ll yank you into the middle of next week ; and she don’t wan’t you to be monkeyin’ around this alley or she’ll make you sick in forty-seven places. Do you catch on? Git.’ That’s what I said to him. Nothin’ the matter with that being plain enough, is there?" and the poor mother burst iuto tears. A minister of a prominent New York church, who was about to leave home for a ew days, was bidding good-bye to his fam ily, says the Boston Budget. When he came to Bobby lie took the little fellow in his arms and said: "Well, young man, I want you to be a good boy, and be sure to take care of mamma.’’ Bobby promised, and the father departed, leaving with him a very large and full appreciation of his new and weighty responsibility. Wheu night came and he was called to say his prayers, the young guardian expressed himself as fol lows : "0 Lord, please protect papa and brother Dick, and sister Alice and aunt Mary, and all the little Jones boys, and Bobby. But you needn't trouble about mamma, for I’m going to look alter her my self.’’ _ Deafness Cannot be Cured by local applications, as they cannot reach the diseased portiou of the ear. There is only one way to cure Deafness, and that is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the mu cous lining of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube gets inflamed you have a rum bling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed Deafness is the result, and unless the imflammation can be taken out and this lube restored to its nor mal condition, hearing will be destroyed forever; nine cases out of ten are caused by | catarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed I condition of the mucous surfaces.

MacCorkle will act speedily and favorably in this case. We hope so. We understand there is an acreage large ly in excess of last year of wheat being sown this fall.
