We are indebte«l to Senator Camden tor a copy of his able speech in the Senate on the 30th of September advocating a repeal of the parchasing clause of the Sherman ailver law. Monday was Chicago Day at the World - Fair, and there were eight hundred thousand p -rsons admitted—bringing the total ad mis •ions from the beginning to sixteen million, five hundred thousand ! General Rn*aer, who has joined the Pop ulisis and has announced his candidacy for Congress to succeed Hon. C. T. 0 Ferrail, opened his canvas in Wood-lock oo Monday and had an audience of fifty ! Basil Lockwood, the negro who raised a ladder to the window of Ford’s Theatre by which some of the employes reached the ground after the fall of that building, has been appointed messenger in the War De partmeut.

Mr Bryan not only did i»"t accept the challenge, but turned the letter over to the police authorities. His action i« generally commended. Congressman W. C. P. Breckinridge ar rived at his home in Lexington. Ky, and stated to a Courier Journal corres|M»ndenl that it was too early lo talk yet about tlie Pollard suit, but said that lie wanted the people of his district to be perfectly satis tied of hi* guilt or innocence before the time of the election, and would auswer the charg es at the proper time. Judge Shepard, of B>wie county, lexa-, has decided that the signing of marriage li censes in blank by the county clerk, which has been customary for ten year*, is irregu lar. The licenses were furnished to justice* of the peace, who supplied them on appli cation and filled in the names. A thousand marriages are rendered illegal by the deci sion. The case will be,appealed. Referring to a Free PhEs« paragraph reporting tlie negroes of Virginia coming over to the Democratic partv because tired of Republicanism and distrustful of Popu lists, the Harpers Ferry Sentinel remarks: **In that case Democracy becomes ‘neck or nothing' with them. We see no reason wht they shouldn’t try a little‘neck’if they feci like it.” Our friend meant to #av next to nothing. Siince the 1st of August seven State Dem ocratic conventions have b* en held and ev ery one of them ha* apj roved President Cleveland’s financial policy and demanded the repeal of the Sherman act. These are Ohio. Iowa, Ptfiinsvlvsnia, Maryland. Mas aichusetts, New York and Nebraska. Vir ginia’a convention endorsed the National Democratic platform, though it did notspeak out so strongly on this matter of uncondi tional repeal. The report of Mr. Blount, who was sent by President Cleveland to the Hawaiian Islands as special commissioner, reconi mends that no action be taken by the United States to annex the Islands or to establish a protectorate over them without the full consent of all the native*, and that all qoes lions involved be submitted to a vote ot the residents of the Islands, native* as well a.« foreigner* It i* said that the adoption ot Mr. Blount’s recommendation* will result in the restoration of the ex Queen to power. Senator Voorhee* has given notice that he will to day (Wednesday) a«k the Senate to continue in session until a vote is reach ed on the hill to repeal the purchasing clause of the Sherman act. The conte-t thus re a >1 ves itself intsonr of phy aical end' ranee, in which the minority Senators will have the a I vantage of being able to relieve one an other, while the majority will have to keep t iough on hand to make a quorum at all times. The silver men are said to have a well-laid plan of campaign, and claim to be confident that they can force the majority to agree to a compromise. It will be seen from the synopsis, in an other column, of Governor MacGorkle’s re ply to his critics, who are numerous and by no means gentle, that his Excellency didn’t go before the way* and means committee without some arguments for the retention of the duty on coal that merit consideration It is not at all inconsistent with the Demo cratic p’edge t» reduce the tariff to a reve nue basis, that the equal distribution of its possible benefits as well as its burdens shall be aimtd at in making the reduction. It may be true -also—the statement is made, at any rate, upon good authority, and support ed by weighty evidence—that the repeal of the duty will not cheapen coal to the con sumer in the interior, but only upon the sea board. However this may be, the rate of duty upon one article can’t be jus'ly fixed without taking others into consideration, and the scheme ol tariff revision must pro vide for the cheapening of materials used ia manufacturing, in compensation for ma terial reduction in the protection afforded to manufacturing interests. For our part we are willing to leave the whole matter to the wisdom of the Democrats of the ways and mean* committee, satisfied that the bill to be reported by them will be prepares with full information of the need* of every indus try and In a spirit of fairness to all interests. Governor MacCorkle. Governor M«cCorkle, who ha* been pret ty severely criticised for appearing before the way# and means committee to ask that the present tar IT on coal be retained, has issued a lengthy statement in explanation and defeose of his action, claiming that he has been misrepresented, especially by the Associated Press reports. ”.\!y position, j he says, “is ju*t this. The Democratic par- | I ty is pledged to correct the inequalities and j undue burdens of the tariff. Is it correct ing the inequalities of the tarifl to place duty on the other products of the country and place our ouly great product on the free list ♦ I am a tariff reformer, alwolutely so; and when it is the theory of the party that expense* of the government should be paid by the tariff, I want my State to have her fair share of the tariff We are willing to take a fair and bon tot reduction, as other products are ; no more, no less ; and to-day the tariff averages 50 per cent, on every thing else; coal with its rebate has ouly I about one half that.” He argues tli it it has been the policy of the Democratic party to maintain a duty upon coal, and that the present duty is low | in proportion to the average tariff rates and mucL lower than that imposed by earlier Democratic legislation. The first tariff, that of 1780, placed a duty of 56 cents per ton Ion bituminous coal. In 1<90 it wal* 85 cents. From that time until 1842 it was never less than $1 40 per ton, and part of that time it was $1 80 In 1S42 it was $1 75 The Walk er tariff— the ideal Democratic measure, which whs, professedly, a tariff for revenue only—under which the average rate of duty was only 20 per cent., placed coal on the list at $1 30 p«-r ton ; while under the pres ent taritl*. with an average duty of about 50 per cent., the duty on coal is hut 75 cents a ton with a rebate whicli makes a real duty - a sws. . I _ • J l_II7.IL OX ITIIlh ; I lie I irvirw w; w.iv *••••« er tariff continued until 1S61, when it was reduced to *1.00 to admit foreign coal in time of war; and in 1873, when other du ties were reduced only 10 per cent., that on coal was reduced to 75 cents per ton. ‘‘This unfair reduction,” says the Governor, “was made by the influence of New England.” He goes on to review the record of the party <>n this question since the war. The tariff bill reported to the House in 1878 by ttie ways and means committee under the chairmanship of Fernando Wood, which was recognized as a Democratic measure, provided lor a duty on coal of 75 cents. In the Forty eighth Congress, Mr. Morrison reported a bill placing coal on the free list. This, the Governor thinks, helped as much as anything to bring about its reaction by the House. 1 lie Mills bill, which was en dorsed by the National Democratic Conven tion, and on which the campaign of 1888 was made, left the duty ou coal at 75 cents. Governor MacCorkle claims, in view of these facts, that he is on a solid foundation of Democratic precedent when he advocates the retention of the present duty, and he protests against the criticisms of his De mocracy. He further says that in political campaigns the expressions or votes of Re publican leaders—among them Wheeler, Blaine and Logan—in favor of free coal have been uses] against them and their parly His position, he declares, is directly in the line of a tariff for revenue. If. the Walker tariff rate of *1 50 was for revenue only, 75 cents is uot in excess of a revenue rate. We have made New England rich by paying her tariffs, and it is New England that now wants free coal to reduce the cost of manufacturing. With 16.000 miners in ttiis siate i- would be a ruinous policy to the party. He says in conclusion that the whole ab solute prosperity of this State is founded on coal. We have the best coal and more coal than any State in the Union. We have been engaged lor twenty-five years in aeon flict with Pennsylvania for coal supremacy, and just now, when we are seeing the light, shall we adopt a tree c >al platform and have capitalists wait for another five or ten years 10 see what the effect will be before they will invest in our mines and in our hills?— The manufacturers have two, three and f>ur times ns much tariff as we have, and we are only asking what rightfully be'ongs to the State when »e ask for the pitiful revenue tariff of 25 cents per tun on coal. The miners are getting just as little as they can live on ; there is not an over rich coal cor poration in this State; they are living just as close as they can and scarcely making any dividends; the railroads are transport ing cowl cheaper than was ever known be fore, and they are cutting down forces and putting their laborers a- low as pos-ible, and cm they stand a reduction? Jit*doe* not sav that free coal would he absolute ruin, but he does say that it is problemat ical. Tree coal will not cheapen coal to tbe consumer. The anthracite coal settles the consumer’s market. It will allow tbe bringing in of Nova Scotia coal; it will al low the continuance of English and Aus tralian coal on the Pacific coast, and with the Nicarauguan canal built, West Virginia should absolutely and will absolutely dom inate tbe Pacific coast with its present tariff and none can compete there with the present tariff. Nova Scotia coal is to day compe ting in the New Eoglaud markets with our own coal, and with the tariff off will abso lutely drive our coal out of tbe New Eng laud markets. ttome rears ago the Scientific American took occasion to interview a large number of commander* of ocean steamers concern ing the momentum of vessels. “Suppose,” 11 asked, “a steam vessel was running at full speed and the engines were reversed, bow far would the vessel run before it began to gather sternway—that is, to move back ward ?” The answers varied between two and four mile*, but the conclusion was reach ! ed that if two vessels were approaching each other under a full head of steam they might, after hearing the fog horn at a distance of four miles apart, do their best to stop, and yet come into collision with each other, with serious consequences.

For a great many years doctors pronounced it a local disease, and prescribed local remedies, and by con stantly tailing to cure with local treatment, pronounced it incurable.

The lights in the auditorium of the First Presbyterian Church cast their rayB last night over what was, perhaps, the most beautiful marriage ceremony ever witnessed in this church which has been the scene of so many pretty weddings. No sooner were the doors thrown open than the church was thronged with friends of the bride and groom, eager to witness the ceremony which was to unite in marriage Mr. Stuart W. Walker, of Martinsburg, and Miss Annette May Thayer, of this city. Seldom are two young people united under more auspicious circumstances, and seldom are there present so many friends as were out last night, com prising the mo*t exclusive circles of Charles ton society. The church was handsomely decorated with great banks of plants and cut flowers and presented a most beautiful appearance. Strains of sweet music filled the air, being brought out of the organ by the magic touch of Prof. 0. W. Schaeffer. Promptly at the appointed hour the bridal party arrived and proceeded up the lett aisle in the following order: First came the ushers, Hon. Geo. M Bowers, of Martins burg, Hon. Jas. C. Frazier, of Martinsburg, Col. Clareme L. Smith, of Fairmont, Messrs. Geo. W. McClintic, Harry L. Boggs, John D Lewis, H. W. Knight and J. M. B. Donnelly, of this city. Next came the bridesmaids and groomsmen in the follow ing order: Mr. Peyton Harrison, of Mur tinshurg, aud Miss Ethel Ruffner; Mr. M. A. Snodgrass, of Martinsburg, and Miss Marjorie Gentry; Mr. W. T. Thayer and Miss Hobbs, of Selma, Ala.; Col. John T. McGraw, of Graltoo, and Miss Emma Pow er; Mr. Ira C. Dayton, of Pennsylvania, and Miss Mary Thayer; Mr. Conrad H. Syme, of Washington, and Miss Frances Jacobs ; Mr. R. P. Camden, of Parkers burg, and Miss Lobban, of Alderson ; Maj. J. E. Chilton and Miss Addie Thayer ; Mr. .[ R Tbnver and Miss June Faulkner, of Martinsburg. The bride and her maid of honor, Miss Emily Beury, came next and were met by the groom and his best man, Senator Charles J. Faulkner. The Rev..Dr. J. C. Barr performed the marriage ceremony in bis usual impressive manner, after which the party relumed to the carriages and were driven at ouce to the residence of Mr. A. 0. Thayer, where a reception was given to the wedding party and a few of the most inti mate friends. Capt. John Baker While, of ihis city, and Mr. Grif. T. Smith, of Wash ington, were in charge of the church doors where admission was had only by card. The bride was attired in a handsome Worth gown of white velvet, carried bride roses and carried a white velvet-covered prayer-book, and wore a tulle veil fastened with a coronet of diamonds, the gift of the groom. The bridesmaids ail wore becom ing gowns of white bengaline, tulle veils, and carried American Beauties. The maid of honor wore a lovely gown of Nile green chiffon and carried American Beauties. The bride is one of the fairest flowers that lias graced $he first circle of Charleston so ciety. A Indy.pf rare accomplishments and most winning ways, she has long been the favorite of the circle in which she moved. The daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Otis A. Thayer, she had spent her entire life among our people and no one numbers among them a greater multitude of friends than she.— Mr. Walker is to be sincerely congratula'ed on the fair prize lie has secured, though the congratulations will not be unmingled with regret that the bride is to be borne from among us to live elsewhere. Mr. Walker, whose good fortune it was to secure so lovely a bride, is one of the most prominent attorneys of, the eastern part of the State, law partner of U. S. Sen ator Cbas. J.

The full text of Senator Camden a speech in favor of the repeal of the silver purchase law will be found on another page. Mr. Camden goes to the root of the currency question and shows clearly and conclusively that a debased currency is the direct enemy of labor in these days when the great vol ume of business is done through bills of exchange, checks, drafts, etc. The wage-worker is paid in currency.— He pays for what he buys in currency. The employer, the manufacturer, the capitalist, the large operator, does not conduct his business on that line, because it would be impossible. The basis of the country’s cur rency is behind the mau with the check book, but the man whose transactions are done with cash and who pays in currency has no basis except the solid value of the currency itself. In other words the man of thousands or millions is safe because his money is gold, the standard of the country’s and the world's currency. The workingman, however, who pays up in hard dollars, has no fixed stand ard by which to gauge his money. True, his silver dollar, though it is worth but half its full face value, will purchase one hun dred cents’ worth in the United States, but the men in the money centers, who hold the money and deal in money, have two dollars for every one in the workingman’s pocket. Senator Camden puts the case plainly and succinctly. The first thing to do toward placing the country’s currency on a sound and level basis is to repeal the law that is responsible for the present condition—the Sherman act—though the debasement of the silver dollar dates back to that other Sherman act of 1873, when silver was de monetized as a money metal.— Wheeling Register. The number of deaths by the great storm on the gulf coast last week is now estimated at from two thousand to twenty-five hun dred. Millionsof dollars' worth of property were destroyed, and thousands of people are deprived ol means oi musing a living.—» Many of them are without food aud clothing. The bodies of the dead, so far as recovered, have been, of necessity, hastily buried in great trenches, piling one on another and without coffins. The Louisiana marshes are full of putrefying corpses, and the hor rible prospect of an epidemic of yellow fever or cholera is before the survivors. The greatest loss of life was at Cheniere Cami mula, a fishing town with a population of 1,500 or 1,600 of whom about 300 were saved, A large number of fishing vessels were out in the gulf. Tiie boats and their occupants have not been heard from—and will not be. It is said that in the settlements where the storm was worst not a single child survived, and very few women. The survivors are the young men in the vigor of manhood. Not one of them but has a terrible story to tell: not one but is bruised and injured. They es caped mainly on rafts or logs, floating for twenty lonely hours in the water, with the wind at 115 miles an hour plsyiug around them. Mr. George Neer, one the oldest citizens of Neersville, Va., aged 89 years, died on Monday. Mr. Neer was one of Loudoun’s most honorable, upright and respected resi dents. He lias been a farmer all his life in Loudoun valley, and by his quiet, honpst and temperate methods and habits won the confidence, good will and high regard of all with whom he came in contact. Mr. Neer was a devoted member of Ebenezer M. E. Church for many years and was a very strict religious man in all that the term implies.

She is more than twice the size of Maryland, two and one half times the size of Massachusetts, that has two million population, and larger than Massachusetts, New Jersey, Connecticut and RlmJc I«lan<I combioed. The kini'dom of Belgium and the Netherlands have together a population of more than 10,000,000. The area of West Virginia is greater than the area of both combined.
