W. W. B. GALLAUER, Editor._ CHorl**tou~n,Jeffer»on County. WeatVa. jyrma—%2.00 Per Annum in Advance. Xovember 20, tA9S. DON’T SKIP THIS. We want money. Who doesn’t, with Christmas almost on top of him? But don’t wait until Christmas comes. We want money now; and your re regard for our needs—if you owe us— will be the measure of your enjoy ment of the coming Thanksgiving Day The bad eggs that were thrown at Bill Nye in New Jersey came too nigh for com* fort. Bill doesn’t enjoy that sort ol humor. Some of the Republican* disclaim the re sult of the election a* a Republican victory, but they will see to it that the Republicans get the usufruct. Coxey’s official vote for Governor of Ohio was 55.625. Where did they come from? Not from the so called “Industrial Army,” for those men would not exercise the right of suffrage. Many of the personal* in the city papers read something like this: Mr. and Mrs. B have gone to the Atlanta Expo., and Miss C. has gone to New York to the horse show. 9o many are on the go. We take the liberty of suggesting to the Berkeley Democrat that it has too lately evolved from a Free Lance to undertake t<> read some of the best Democrats of \V est Virginia out of the party. -tome newspapers, reformers so-called, ili.f Vi*?.. Wn rpinirinip in the breaches they made in Democratic strongholds are now contemplating assaults on the bloomers —are panting for other victories. Judge Faulkner got back alive from old Kentucky—didn’t fall into any of the crev ice* made by thereceot political earthquake there—and was on hand bright and early yesterday morning to open court. It is thought now that the Republicans of Kentucky will secure the legislature on joint ballot and elect a Republican Senator by contesting the seats of members of tb* lower house aud substituting Republicans for Democrats. Referring to the trial of ex-Marslial \ in son upon the charge of killing Frizzell dur ing a fusillade at a hot political meetiug a year ago, the Martinsburg Independent says: "We do not believe that that kiudly faced old man ever drew a trigger for mortal death.’1__ At the recent elections Democrats failed to vote as follows: 36,000 in New Jersey; . 187,000 iu Pennsylvania; and 15-3,000 in New York. Iu Virginia there was a slim TOt8—so much indifference in places that the polls were not opened. It will be dif ferent next year. The Governor of Maryland has more pa tronage thau any other Governor in the I’nion. He controls the appointment ol 2,300 office holders. All this was given away to a Republican boss, who is to be so very kind as to turn it over again to the Democrats next year or 'smother year. A. J. Carroll, a Democrat,—representa tive-elect from the Louisville district to the Kentucky Legislature—has resigned. A new election must take place, and should a Republican be elected the legislature would be Republican. Perhaps that would be a better way to attain the result than the un seating of Democrats. The Sun and some other papers in Mary land anu elsewhere refer to the recent elec tion in Maryland and its result as "the peo pie’s triumph"—but the Republicans will shortly claim that they are the "people.”— However that may be, there’s a duty that Democrats in Maryland owe to their party, and that is to “pull themselves together” 'twixt now and next November. Frederick, Maryland, gave a large Re publican majority at tbe recent election, and yet on Saturday night a in >b took a ne gro out ot jail there and hanged and shot him to death. Politics don’t divide white people when uegro men commit such u crime as theoue referred to was killed for. Lynching - are deplorable, but they are con sequent upon crimes that are, beyond all else that is fiendish, the most devilish, and the perpetrators thereof are sure of swift punishment. Tbe Morgantown New Dxniuion says: “Tbe re< ent Democratic defeats will have their good effects. Next year new blood will come to the front.” No doubt if neget licked again there will be nose bleeds. We commend to two or three of our West Vir ginia Democratic papers the following from the Hampshire Review : “The Democratic party can lick the Re publican party every day in the year if its members would all go the same way, but the difficulty is one faction of the party is de voting all its strength aud energy to destroy the other faction and discredit the men who have been the accredited leaders in the va rious .States.” The so-called Reform Democrats of Mary land set out to overturn Gorman and purify politics. How have they succeeded ? Turn ed over the 5?tate to the Republicans, fake, for instance, a single county—Harford—and see what Mr. Lowndes can aud will do there. He will appoint lor Harford county thirty justices of the peace, six registration officers, two school commissioners, aud they will ap point their counsel and school examiner; one inspector of cattle, hay uii.1 straw in Havre de Grace, two duckiug police, five notaries public, three supervisors of electiou, j two of whom will be Republicans aud oue Democrat, and they will appoiut their coun- < •el, who will be of the political persuasion I of the majority of the board. And yet Mr. i j Gorman will be a Senator until March 4, | ISt*. is Worth Wins—Charles Broadway Bouts. This gentleman, is earning a world wide repution for genuine, unselfish, spontaneous and generous liberality. His wealth is the result of systematic, energetic, skillful, stick at your business principles. Entering the large city of New York soon after the close of the war, in which he had taken an active part on the Confederate side, poor, almost penniless, he went to merchandizing on dif ferent than customary methods and from the modest, little store room he kept ad vancing step by step, until in equipment and resource, he rivaled Stewart, the Claf lios and others. He toiled, success resulted, that brought wealth and the work kept him vigorous in body and mind, so that, as the thousands grew into hundreds of thousands and those into the millions, be has the sweeter consolation, the more touching en joyment of kindly distributing that wealth in benefactions that will produce flowers for others to enjoy. His latest douatiou is #25, 000 for the restoration of the library of the University of Virginia recently destroyed by fire. It has been no kid glove and swallow tail coat with him. Worth and work wins. Worthlessness sits idling and fails. Such is the lesson we present to the youths and others who read the Independent.—Mar timbura Independent. The Court of Appeals last week reversed the opinion of Judge Dailey in the case of Smith and others against Daniel Cornelius and others from Morgan county. The case is one of considerable importance because it involves the right of the trustees of the Berkeley springs to lease the springs for private enterprise, the springs being the property of the State and the control of them vested in a board of trustees by stat ute. A majority of the members of the board agreed to lease the springs to Corne lius for a term of years, provided he would erect a hotel and put other improvements on the property involving a large expendi ture of money, but dissenting members ob tained an injunction restraining Cornelius I I Win iailVIU£ UUk v.. —V ground that the board has no authority to make the lease. A motion was made in the circuit court to quash the injunction when the case was heard on its merits before Judge Dailey, who decided to perpetuate the injunction, whereupon the case was ap pealed. The decision of the supreme court reversing Judge Dailey’s opinion will be received with delight by the people ol Berkeley Springs, who are said to be almost unanimous in lavor of the lease Assistant Supt. Beall, of the Produce Ex change, is a Virginian, but has lived in Yon kers lor many years. Two weeks ago he was missed Irorn his desk. Every two or three days he would rush iuto his office with a pained expression on his face, hurry thiough his mail and rush away again.— l'lieu the news got abroad that he was in the bauds of his friends, having accepted a nomination to the Assembly in Westchester county. His friends assured him that be had a brilliant political future before biin. Mr. Beall had a tired look on his face when he resumed bis duties at the Exchange on the morning after election. “I am out of poli tics,.’he said to Sunt. Howe “Why, did vi»u withdraw?” “No,” said Mr Beall, “but with Kentucky and Maryland Republican, the political future of a young Democrat above the Harlem is of very vague charac ter ” Mr Beall was not elected by a mi nority of 300 votes.—X.

Our former young townsman tho’ defeat ed in a Republican district by 300 majority, is to be congratulated on the fact tbat he ran ahead of bis ticket five hundred votes It is a testimonial to popularity that he can afford to paste in his hat. Janies Bowens, a young colored man, who assaulted Miss Lillie L-mg, aged about twenty one years, at the home of Hsmilton Geisbert, about one mile south ol Frederick City, Md , at 5 30 o’clock Saturday after noon, was taken from the county jail at 1 30 o'clock Sunday morning by a mob of about four hundred uumasked nreu, and was hang ed to a tree in the field of Win. G. Butler, on th Jefferson turnpike, about one half mile from Frederick City. The young lady was reported to be in a dying condi tion. Her tieatment by Bowens was fiend Hh. It is me tourtn assault ot mis cnarac- I ter in Frederick county in six months — After the lynching a member of the mob made a brief speech, in which lie said : “It is not with a spirit of malice toward this unfortunate wretch or his race that we are here to night, but it is to teach men of his cia-s cfiat they mu-t let the white women of Frederick county alone or sutler the couse tjueuces, of which this is an example.” < ' itrageous assaults upon white women by negro fiends are now becoming quite common A lady at Charlottesville, Ya, was lately brutally assailed arid the negro escaped to the woods A similar attempt was made on Friday morning upon a .Mrs M mntford at New Cumberland, this St ite, but th** plucky woman managed to get hold of a butcher knife and a terrible struggle ensued, during which the negro was wound ed in two or three places and his clothing cut from hi' person by the desperate and plucky woman.

Boyd Faulkner on the bench, the officials all in their places, and the bar filled with the usual complement of lawyers.— The grand jury was charged and set to wotk on a number of cases, and the business of the court moved along smoothly as if the wheels had just been oiled. The grand jury is as follows : E. H- Mc Donald, Samuel J. Boyd, G. N. Moore, B. F. Langdon, R. W, Morrow, Casper M. Stump, J. W. Benner, Daniel Getzendanner, Jacob Sites, E 1. S. Ruse, C. J.

Joseph Smith and Daniel White, indicted at a former term for robbery at N. & W. depot, Shenandoah Junction, pleaded guilty and were sentenced to two years each, in the penitentiary. Gardiner Piper, indicted for stealing horse, pleaded not guilty, and trial set for Friday. A large amount of chancery and other business was transacted yesterday —as much accomplished as is usual in sev eral days. The fact is: the Judge urges the Knights of the green bag to be ready, and when they are ready the word “go” is given and they all pass under the wire at no mean gait. The convening of Judge Faulkner's court means business. In the cases of Joseph Smith and Daniel White, who pleaded guilty, Prosecuting At torney Brown told the court he would be satisfied with the shortest term allowed by law. It was brought to the attention of the Judge that the prisoners had been convert ed to religion since confined in jail and that they belonged to respectable families, and in consideration of these facts Judge Faulk ner sentenced them to two years in the pen itentiary. Twelve cases were presented to the grand jury, but only two indictments were made, to wit: Charles Hicks, colored, for stabbing with intent to kill, and Henry Johnson, colored, for selling ardent spirits without license. The jury will be in session to-day. Ucath of Mrs. Isaac Gibson. From the Norristown (Pa.) Herald of last Saturday we take the following notice of the death of the wife of Rev. Isaac Gibson, for years a resident of this town. Mrs. Gibson was highly esteemed by our people, and the bereaved husband has the sincere sympathy of the community: “The community was greatly surprised this morning on learning of the death of Mrs. Isaac Gibson, wife ol the Rector of St. John’s Episcopal Church, Norristown. Mr. Gibson returned home last night at about ten o’clock from a visit to one of bis parishioners to find Mrs. G. in bed. About 11 o’clock she complained of oppression and difficulty in breathing. Her son Muscoe, who had not yet retired, sum moned Dr. Weber, the family physician.— The latter immediately applied restoratives, but to no avail, Mrs. Gibson expiring a few minutes before 12 o’clock in the presence of her family and the doctor, the immediate cause of death beinrc heart failure. Mr*. Gibson had not shown marked premonitory symptoms of the disease that terminated her life. Latterly, however, she had complain ed of shortness of breath whilst walking but being a woman whose general health was excellent the fact caused no alarm.— The attack last night and the sudden fatal termination was therefore the greater shock to the family and the community. The de ceased was Miss AnuieS. Wingerd, a native of Washington, D. C. As Mrs. Gil son she lived a number of years in West Virginia, coining to Norristown in 1872, when Mr Gibson entered, Nov. 1st, upon his duties as rector of St. Joliu’s parish. She leaves sur viving besides her husband four children, to-wit, Rev. John S. Gibson, of Huntington, West Virginia, the Misses Ethel and Delia, and M. M. Gibson, Esq., all residing at the rectory. During Mr. Gibbon’s long and useful career as pastor Mrs. Gibson has ta ken an active interest in church affairs.— The improvements which have taken place in the church building and the extension of the work in the parish have all had lor zealous attention. In this she was in reali ty a helpmate to her husband. She died in her G4ih year.” Miss Coralie L. Franklin, a graduate and former teacher of Storer College, Harper’s Ferry, was a delegate of the Woman’s League to the .National Council at Atlanta, and made an address there. The Atlanta Constitution said: “At the close of Miss Barton's address there was music and Mrs. Dickinson intro duced Coralie L Franklin, ol Washington, D. C., the representative of the Colored Woman’s Nationil League. .She is a wom an of intellect and dignity, and the beauti~ fully composed address was perfectly deliv ered and was remarkable for its rhetorical finish. The unique spectacle of ari educated colored woman addressing a refined and in lelligent audience of white women was suf ficient testimony to the broad policy of the woman’s department to make its congresses national in character, to the exclusion of sectional prejudices The paper was a com prehensive history of her race and detailed step by step the opening of new fields to the women of her race, until to-day they have as many openings and opportunities for self advancement and education as have the whites. The entire speech was conservative in ita tonp and a spirit of gratefulness seem pd to pervade it for what had been done for ne *j e iker’s sex and race." Excursion llatcs to Atlanta.
