It will convene again °n the 4th of December. The Populists of Virginia can’t crow over yesterday’s electiou because their Cocke hasn’t much voice in it. The opponents of Col. O’Ferrall took a good many “ underbolts,” but true to hi* nickuame he Tripped 'em. The cork flew out of the Pop bottle in Virginia yesterday. There was too much effervescence the day before. The House bill amending the Geary Chi Qfte-exclusion act so as to extend the time given the Chinese to register has been pass ed by the Senate. The Emperor of China is also learning the English language. If he arrives at the verbs, what will he think when his teacher goes over, 'T teach, thou tea chest, etc f" The Washington papers announce that President Cleveland and Hon. Wm. L. 'V il son were in conference on Monday, and it is supposed tariff reform »a. the topic spe cially under consideration. If President Cleveland wants to appoint a Virginian to the vacancy occaa oned by the death of Judge Hugh L Bond, he will have no difficulty in getting oue that is well endorsed. Nearly every town in the State has recommended it* “leading lawyer' for the position. It is said that the friends of M*j<»r Holme* Conrad, Assistant Attorney-general, will urge his appointmeut to succeed Judge Bond. Msj. Conrad has already declared himself a candidate for the U. S. Senate. Hon. H. Kyd Douglass is also mentioned as a possi ble successor of Judge Bond. tJenator Allen's famous silver speech wa the longest speech ever printed in the £b» jrtuiona! Renrd, and filled sixty-two pages. The Government Printing Office ran out of type while setting the speech and was corn pelted to -end it in -instalment* to Mr. Allen for revision. In pamphlet form the speech would make a hook of a hundred and seventy-five closely printed pages. A cow at Newcastle, Pennsylvania, -wal lowed an umbrella.

The cow live* and is the envy of the town g-at, whose diet is tin can*, and a-ks “How can these thing* be*' Mr. Charles Button, who was editor of the late Lynchburg IVyi/iMM, is being urged by bis friends for the place of public print er, «ay» a Washington correspondent of the Alexandria Gazette. If he desire* the place we trust our life-time friend will get it — Good business qualifications, with experi ence in printing, and integrity—all possess ed by Mr Button, will commend him to the President. It was a matter of remark in last year's campaign that nearly enough former Repub lican cabinet officers were in revolt again-* their party to make up a cabinet. George it. Robeson. Secretary of the Navy under Grant, has follow**! their example, and re cently declared in a public speech that the Republican party was dead, and that those wb«> held Republican principles could not do better than to vote gainst the party now di-erscing its name Senator Hill lias offered two amendments to the rules of the Senate, providing that no Senator while speaking shall be inter rupted with the question of the lack of a quorum, and that the question sha.l not lie raised ofteuer than once in an hour—the provision not to apply where the absence of a quorum ia disclosed by a roll call; also that a Senator who is present when the roll is called and refuses to respond to his name shall be counted a* present for the purpose of making a quorum. John Sherman said in a speech in Ohio a few days ago that the greatest question now before the people of the United States is the disfranchisement of voters in the South— virtually confessing thereby that the tariff and th<* other issues upon which the Repub lican party has in part relied in the last few years will avail no longer, and that it is compelled to appeal again to the paaaions and prejudices of twenty years ago. Over whelmingly defeated on the tariff, and dis credited in its pretensions to Mipnrior finan cial wisdom, the only mission of the grand old party is to endeavor to revive sectional hatred.__ ^_ The House of Representatives last Wed nesday, by a vote of 193 yras to 94 nays, ooncurred in the Senate amendment to the Wilson repeal bill, on motion of lion. Win, L. Wilson ; and the bill was signed by the President the same day. The silver men rejected a proposition of Mr. Wilson (who had demanded the previous question on his motion) for a reasonable time for debate, and commenced to filibuster, but were cut abort by the Speaker, who took advantage of a momentary intermission of dilatory motions to put the question. The previous question haviug been ordered, there was a half hour’s discussion, closed by Mr. Wilaoo who said that the future only could deter mine whether the friends or the enemies of the bill were right, and that if its passage should bring about but a small part of the blessings predicted—should restore confi dence and bring prosperity, the judgment of its friends would be justified and its op ponents would stand before history as men of honest, patriotic but mistaken judgment. • A motion by Mr. Bland tocomn.it the bill with Instructions to bring in a free-coiuage amendment was, of course, defeated. TCESDATS ELECTIOSS. Virginia—Col. O’Ferrall’* Majority 96,000— Probably 40,000. The election in Maryland resulted in the success of the Democratic State ticket. The legislature will be largely Democratic. The Democratic municipal ticket was [ elected in Baltimore. The returns from Virginia Indicate the election of the Democratic State ticket head ed by Hon. Charles T. 0 Ferrall, for Gov ernor, by an overwhelming majority. It is probable that on a largely decreased vote, compared with that of 1889. O’Ferrall’s ma jority will be at least as large as that of Gov ernor McKinney, which was about 42,000. In many of the cities and counties the col ored vote seems to have gone to the Demo crats. The Legislature is also largely Dem cratic, which insures United States Senators for that party for the long and short terms. With the exception of a few counties the Populists made a very poor showing of strength. The Democratic rftate ticket in New York was defeated, including Judge Mavnard for the Court of Appeals. The Republicans elected their candidate for mayor in Brook lyn. In Massachusetts ex Congressman Fred erick T. Greenhhlge, R-puhlican. was elect ed Governor by about 25,000 majority over John E. Russell. Gov. Horace B >ie*, Democrat, was defeat ed by about 30,000 votes for re-election in Iowa. The Demnciata in Kentucky elected a Legislature, which will return Hon. Win. Lindsay to the United States Ssenate. Gov. William McKinley was re-elected Governor of Ohio by over 40,000 over Law __ T Va«l n.-mocrat. The success in the setttlemeut of the Vir ginia debt with the creditors of that State, which hss recently bceu aftected by a com mittee. lias suggested a like sct'lemeut of the debt of West Virgiuia. Negotiations to this end have been carried on for several weeks past with the Mercantile Trust and Deposit Company of Baltimore, which, through ita president, Mr. John Gill, has consented to act as a mediator in tho matter aud to occupj the pOfition held by the Central Trust Com pany of New York iu the settlement of the Viiginia debt. Mr. Gill was a member of the committee which made a satisfactory ad justment of the Viginia deb*. He is famil iar with the financial status oi the two Vir ginias and the relations they bear to each other in the original debt, created before Virginii was divided. The Mercantile Trust Company has organized an adjustment company to undertake the settlement ol Virginia’s debt. This company as same* all responsibility in the prvliuiiuarv stages of the adjustment. The directors of the adjustment company are: Messrs. John QUI, John A Hainbleton, and Richand M. V. n'sble, of Baltim >re ; United States Sen tor Eppa Hunton and Mr. Jame- B Pac-, of Virginia, and Col. R P Chew, of West \ ir giuia Mr. G'nl is president of the company. Mr John A. Hainbleton is vice president and Mr. McHenry is secretary and treasurer. As a first step in the settlement the adju-t rnent company has secured the consent of ex-Governor William Pinkney Whyte, of Baltimore, Charles Francis Adams, of Bos ton. and Major Holmes Conrad, «»f V irgiuia, to serve hs au advisory board. All questions relating to the proposed settlement will be referred to this board, and no action will be taken until ita consent has been obtained to *-ach stop as the aett'ement progr saes. It is said t io members of the board will insp’re c»nfidtiice in the actiou of the adju-tmeut company.—Baltimore Sun On Friday last a small steamer laden with dynamite l)ing in the dock at ?>an Under. 5»pain. caught fire The fire depart ment was ordered out, and pe >ple thronged the vicinity, ignorant oi me uingerom um goon the burning vessel. The explosion came and destroyed everything in the neigh borhood—quays, buildings, ve-sela in the harbor, and all the telegraphic wires. The city was set on fire. The city fire depart ment was destroyed by the explosion, and the only dependence was upon engines sent from surrounding towns. All those on board or near the dynamite steamer and all those aboard a tug-boat alongside of her, as well as the officers and crew of the transat lantic liner, Atphonso XII. were killed by the explosion. The body of the Civil O >v ernor. who was directing the operations on the quay, has been recovered. It is official stated that over 300 persons were killed, in cluding twenty-seven civic guards, the whole police force except two members, several officials, and a majority of the pas sengers on a railway train that had just arrived. The number of the injured is very large, and many are dying from the lack of medical aid. Dozens arc missing. Senator Faulkner is spoken of as a suc cessor to the late Judge Bond for U. S. Cir cuit Judge. Judge Goff was Judge Bond's associate in the district. It is not probable that two West Viuinians would be placed on the bench in a district composed of so many States, aud even if it was. Senator Faulkner is needed where he is He wou’dmakeagood Judg \ but he is as good a Senator, and he can stay in the Senate as many years as he cares to.—Xeie Dominion. The marriage of Senator Faulkner to Miss Virginia Whiting will take place the latter part of January. The ceremony will be celebrated in the Episcopal Church at Hampton, where the full choral service will be used on that occasion. There will be forty persons in the wedding party, aud the preparations for the marriage will be on an unusually magnificent scale.—Martintbnrg Herald. - -- - With all West Virginians we note with pride the numerous occasions on which our distinguished fellow-»ownsman, Senator Faulkaer, has been called upon to tempt rarily preside over that most distinguished and dignified legislative b»dy, the United States Senate. When called upon to make a ruling it is always forthcoming with prompt i ness and accuracy.—Martiwtorg Statetman, Ncxcay Note*. Of the 1008 counted victims of thv Louia inana coaat floods, only 53 were negroes. A colored man named Sam Th >mp*on accidentally shot and killed bis wilt at Ha* gerstown last Thursday week. The Globe says fully 1,000 people went from Washington county to the World's Fair. About 830 tickets were sold in Ha gerstown. Five thousand wild ducks were killed on the flats of the Susquehanna below Havre de Grace last Wednesday to celebrate the opening of the shooting season in Mary land waters. Mr. Risser Huber, an estimable citizen of Martinsburg, died very suddenly Thursday morning. He had returned from the World's Fair the previous day in seeming good health. Abner Redman, a desperate character, was lynched last week in Charlotte county, Va. His last outrage, aud the one which occasioned the lynching, was a murderous assault on a colored man. Jacob F. Miller, of Washington county, Md., was struck on the head by a stone thrown by Harry Grove, and died the same evening. Grove was ordered off land on which he had been shooting, and a quarrel ensued. Fire broke out among the miners' cotta ges at Monongah, near Fairmont, November 1st, and destroyed twenty-two buildings be longing to the coal company and valued at $12,000. The loss to the miners occupying them was several thousand more.

It whs from Preudergast, the assassin of Mayor Harrison. There was a big fire at Monongab, Mari on county, Wednesday that burned ten double houses, one single, and one torn away to head oflf the fire—in all 22 dwellings.— About $9,000 worth of buildings consumed. The residences were mostly occupied by Poles and Slavs. Rev. Mr. Bagby, who has been elected chaplain of the House of Representative*, is probably the youngest man who ever till ed that office. He is a son of Captain Bag by, of King William county, Va , a gallant ex Confederate, and is a cousin of the late Dr. George W Bagby. Capr. John McLure,of Wheeling, atone time very largely interested in Ohio river navigation, and well known in the trade all along the Ohio, died Sunday, after a brief illness, in liis seventy-ninth year. He amass ed a I a rue fortune, and was proprietor of the McLure House, a leading hotel in that city. G. W. L. Mayers left yesterday for Clarke county, Va., to make preparations for the interment of the remains of his brother, which are on the way to America from Chili. The remains will arrive in New York about Nov. 10, where Mr. Mayers will meet and take charge of them.—Fbirmont free Preti. Col. John G. Chonteau, one of the best known ciiizena of 8t. Louis, and who is worth about $2,000,000, created a sensation at 11 o’clock last Friday night by puttting down a brick pavement. He wore a black ailk hat and kid gloves, and with a helper was working as assiduously as a mechanic paid by the hour. Tne steamer City of Alexandria, belong itig to the New York and Cuba Mail Steam ship Company, was burned at sea last week, twenty five miles from Havana. Thirty four or five persons were drowne I ; the rest reached shore in life boats. The fire was caused by an explosion, and tour niinureu bsriels of rum helped to feed the flames and made it impossible to save the ship. Thahksglvlng Proclamalion. State of West Virginia, Executive Chamber, Charleston. Xov. Uh. 1838.— Thursday, Nov. 30ih, 1893, is hereby appointed as a day of thanksgiving, therefore I suggest that said day be observed in accordance with the es tablished customs, as a day of Thanksgiving and charity. Given under my hand at the city of Charleston, this 4th day of November, 1893. Wm. A. MacCokkle. By the Governor, W. E CHILTON, Secretary of State. A well-known Congressman tells this on President Cleveland. Last summer the President and Col. Dan. Lauiont were fishing for ba«s in a big lagoon not far from Buzzard’s Bay, using live frogs for bait. The President had remained still for several hours without results and had been watching a big frog on a log across the la goon whose strident notes occasionally shook the trees. Finally the President said : “Dan., look at that blank big frog over there on the log Wonder if we couldn’t catch him?” Colonel Dan. slowly adjusted his glasses and viewed the amphibious creature. “Gro ver,” he replied sadly, “that is your bait.” It is said tha' an average waltz takes one about three-quarters of a mile. A square dance makes you cover half a mile. Twen ty dances is the average of an evening, and it is a very moderate estimate to say that in one evening a girl dances twelve and a half miles. This is what she does with her feet, but at the same time bow far does her tongue travel ? Anywhere from fifty, seventy-five or a hundred miles, and not a track in memory. Stop! There are meaningless words, like fragments of tnnes, that linger with us a long, long time and are unutterably sweet. After all, as Thackery says, what folly will not a pair of bright eyes make pardonable? What dullness will not red lips and sweet accents render pleasant? “This is my youngest boy, Mr. Cynicus,” said the novelist. “They say he is very like me.” “Does he go to school ?” “Yes. He can read quite well, but as yet b * <■ • i’t write.” -ery much like you,” said Mr. Cyc j-■ ;- ■ —» Recollections of tlie Fair. In an article on "The Last Days of the Fair,” in a late number of Harper s Weekly, Mr. Richard Harding Davis wrote charming ly of the nightly illumination of the Court of Honor”—a scene that every visitor to the Fair remembers with pleasure. It was best to be enjoyed from the water, in a \ en* etian gondola or an electric launch. If you are in a launch on the water you can give yourself up entirely to the scene around you, and you have the added wonder of the sight of thousands of people massed in si lent rows around the edge of the lagooD, just as though they were waiting for some great event to happen, or for some miracle in keeping with the tremendous beauty of the scene about them. People try to give you an idea of this scene by comparing it to Venice on the nights when that city is illuminated, and to the beauty of the Acrop olis when it is shown off by colored lights and fireworks. This is the best the Old World can do towards helping us to under stand this city of the New World. But it is not enough ; for while Venice has the ef fects of the lights on the water, she has not the great buildings grouped so closely and so grandly together, nor are the Parthenon and the other ruins of the Acropolis on a scale of sufficient grandeur to make one un derstand in any particular the extent of the temples of the Lake Front. It is like try ing to appreciate the Sphinx in the desert by the little bronze copy you use for a paper weight. This same Sphinx by moonlight was the most impressive thing I saw in the East. Not as one sees it by day, with tour ists aud photographers and donkey-boys making it cheap and familiar, but at night, ...I iL. * .4 . L«.l * r\ uru) I )i o donkey-boys had been paid to keep out of sight, and the moonlight threw the great negro face and the pyramids back of it into masses of black and stiver, and the yellow desert stretched away on either side so emp ty and silent that one thought he was alone and back two thousand years in the past, discovering these great monuments for the first time. And yet the ‘Court of Honor’ illuminated was as much more impressive than this as the ocean by moonlight is more impressive than the painted ocean on the hack drop of a theatre. And the curious wonder of the sight is that while all of the great monuments of the Old World have histoiical values hack of them to help their impressiveness, these of the World’s Fair have nothing to speak for them but what lies before you. They have no past to help them ; and, what is worst of ail, they have no future. That every one who has visited the Fair should feel this so keenly is signif icant of one of its greatest qualities. It is this peculiar charm which makes you feel that it has become a part of you and of your experience; you have made your home there as you do in certain cities and not in others, and as you certainly never did in any other World’s Fair. You find you have grown to want certain of its views and vistas, and that you have accustomed yourself to its ways and its comforts. You cannot give up tho thought that you will never again glide through the lagoons at night in a gondola, with a Venetian singing ‘Santa Lucia’ at the bow, and with the wooded islands glow ing with fairy lamps like tire-flies, and the ducks and swans hurrying out of your way, or that you cannot sweep into the ‘Court of Houor’ and feel your own insignificance as the search-lights turn and twist like a fenc er’s foil, pointing down to the fountain or up to the winged angels, or stealing along the length of the Peristyle silently as one who shows something to you and makes no comment, knowing there is none to make." President's Thanksgiving Proclamation Washington, Nov. 3.—President Cleve land this afternoon issued the following Thanksgiving Day proclamation : ‘‘While the American people should every day remember with praise and thanksgiving the Divine goodness and mercy which have followed them since their beginning as a nation, it is fitting that one dav in each vear should be especially devoted to the contem plation of the blessing we have received from the hand of God and to the grateful acknowledgement of His loving kindness. “Therefore, I, Grover Cleveland, President of the United States, do hereby designate and set apart Thursday, the 30th day of the present month of November, as a day of thnnksgiving and praise, to be kept and ob served by all the people of our land. On that day let us forego our ordinary work and employments, and assemble in our usual places of worship, where we may recall all that God has done for us, and where, from grateful heart-*, our united tribute of praise and song may reach the Throne of Grace.— Let the reunion of kindred and the social meeting of friends lend cheer and enjoyment to the day, and let generous gifts of charity for the relief of the poor and needy prove the sincerity of our thanksgiving.” The New York World, in commenting upon Mr. Sherman’s offer to help the gov ernment out of its financial trouble, says: “Republican statesmen had their innings for four years, and they should be a little modest in attempting to run things after the people have turned them out. They found a treasury surplus and left a deficit. They found au excess of revenue and left a lack. They received an accumulation of nearly $100,000,000 of gold above the legal reserve and returned less than $1,000,000. They lound a silver-coinage law that, whatever its faults, did uot immediately threaten the stability of the currency. They substituted a policy of silver purchases and treasury note issues which dragged the country into a panic. They diminished revenues while raising taxes, and increased tariff bounties without increasing wages." In Favor of Buyers. Rubber goods at old prices. It is gener ally known that rubber shoes and boots are very much higher than last year. I pur chased in March, before the advance. $1,000 worth, with a view of making a big stake. But I have decided now to give my custom ers the benefit of the bargains, and will sell ihem at last year’s prices. I have 1st. 2nd and 3rd qualities. None will be sold at wholesale. Just for the benefit of my re tail customers. Geo. H. Haoley. TFhaf a Kindly Aotlon Did for a Lamb Astray. "About three years ago,” said a well known writer to me the other night, "I was passing down Broadway one afternoon and I saw, to my inexpressible pain and regret, a young fellow I knew down South in a state of inebriety both alarmiug ar.d humil iating. The boy was as handsome and clever a lad as I ever saw and was then on the staff of one of the city papers. I followed him from a distance to see what would become of him. Presently I saw him disappear in to the portals of the mammoth wholesale store of the merchant king, Charles Broad way Rouss. In a few minutes he reappear ed with the millionaire by his side. They went to the old New York Hotel, where Mr. Rousa had the young man cared for, paid his bills, and, he having lost his position in the meantime, sent him home with means to seek othei employment when he was able. That young man is now as sober and capa ble a young fellow as we have in the South. He is a power in the politics of at least two Southern States, and will be in Congress before he is forty. What the commercial philosopher said to the young man that day on Broadway I don’t know. Perhaps he didn’t say anything. Rousa isn’t given to preaching. But the kindly act of holding out a bend to this ‘lamb that had gone astray’ made a man of him aud probably saved him from the marble slab and the long trench that await the frieudless dead who die on a debauch in this great city. Why did Rouss help him? you ask. Because he was a Southern soldier's son, I guess that's all.”—Philip W.

Any request for an extempore remark dustered him.— There was a colored cadet in the Saint Cyr Military Academy, and once, when the mar shal reviewed the corps, the instructor sug gested that he should say something to en courage the black man. “Let him stand fourth,” said the marshal. “So you are a darkey, are you ?” he said to the cadet.— “Yes, marshal.” “Well, keep it up.” Col.
