He says he is already assured of 570 delegates, whilst it only requires 424 to nominate. He is making a vigorous campaign. He appears not only confident of a nomination, but of election by a hand some majority. Gen. James G. Field, of Virgiuia, who is a delegate to the ^t.

Can you thus be elected ?” _____ The event of last week was the death iu a fishing camp in Canada of ex-Gov. Wm. E. Russell, of Massachusetts—a leadiog states man of the age, who took an active part iu the Chicago convention against unlimited free coinage of silver. For the recuperation of his health he had gone with his brother on a fishing trip. One morning, sleeping later than usual, some of the party went tc his tent to awake him and found him dead. Heart trouble appears to have been tbe cause of death. His funeral took place in Cambridge, his borne, on Sunday. He had twice been governor of Massachusetts, and occupied other public places, and bad been mentioned for the Presidency. He was a joung man—less than forty years old—J rare abilitiee. Senaror Faulkner's Statement. To the Editor Statesman : la your issue of the 17tli inst, iu stating my position in reference to the C hicago con vention, your paper uses the following lan guage : •‘Senator Faulkuer is iu thorough sympa thy with the Chicago platform and ticket. This statement does not correctly detiue my position, and 1 feel unwilling to let it pass by in silence. I believe the Chicago Convention was a legal and regularly constituted assembly of delegates commissioned by the members of the party to give expression to the will and wishes of the Democratic masses of the couutry. If preseut and a delegate to that convention, 1 should not have voted for the platform as presented to it, as in several re spects it does not give expression to my views on certain public questions. A ‘majority of that fairly aud regularly constituted convention, however, adopted that declaration of principles. Such a ma jority can alone determine the principles and policies of a national party. l'he minority have hut oue ol two courses to adopt. If the differences are so serious that it cannot conscientiously support tha candi date and platform, it must then seek alliance with a political organization w hose declara tion of principles accord with its own. If, however, the policies announced by the platform, on the whole, are more in ac cordance with the views held by the minor ity, than the principles and traditions of opposiug political parties, in my judgment it is right, and the duty of the minority, to yield to the voice of the majority fairly aud regularly expressed. There can be but one Democratic party, and but one Democratic organization, and when once that party through its regularly constituted agents has nominated its candi dates and declared its policies, there can be no middle ground upon which Democrats can stand. No faction representing a minority can claim its name, or usurp its organization. Believing that the candidates nominated, and the platform adopted at Chicago, taken in connection with the history aud tradi tions of the party, more nearly express my views in reference to public questions than the Republican candidates nominated, and the platform adopted at S*t. Louis, 1 shall give my earnest support to the nominees of the Chicago convention. Very truly yours, Signed) Chas J. Failkxek. Martinsburg, \V. Va , July IS, 1S1H5. Ur. Kmrfoil's Candidacy. The prime cardinal requisites of a candi date aspiring to represent this delegate dis trict in the Legislature of \V Va , art*: That he shall have a character with iutegri ty uu.nsailable: that he shall be keenly alive, and watchful of the need* and inter ests of the farming classes; that he shall have a judgment with a quick, incisive sense of discrimination to trace the course of pro p,»sed legislation to its final consequences. Further than this the most exacting tax paver can not go in seeking a candidate for the legislature In the persoual character of John 1*. Kearfott the voters have all these requirements exemplified in a most striking man tier. But the self-assumed moulder of public opinion in Jefferson county, conscious of hie own personal weakness before the people, has reached out into the realms of fancy and brought into tho canvass a question as utterly foreign to the real issues as the Cu ban question, nr the succession to the throne of Dahomey. It is not altogether in the pursuit of the one idea erstwhile so char acteri-tic of the editor of the Advocate that he has introduced the 16 to 1 issue into the contest. He himself is a candidate, and hi" own personal strength needs bolstering, hence ths exotic issue of 16 to l. The only apology he presents for bringing in the ques tion of silver, is the possibility that the Leg islature would be called upon to elect s Sen ator in the event of the death or resignation of one of our Senators None of ih are so optimistic as to believe that the laws of ns ture are to be reversed, or the days of mira cles are to return Yet, suppose that the people of West Virginia are to he blessed with an opportunity to elect a Democrat to succeed either Faulkner or Elkins in tin Senate, I, as a 16 to 1 Democrat, knowing Mr. Kearfott's convictions on the money questiou, would implicitly trust him to sup port a staunch advocate of constitutional currency for thesenatorship. Even thong! Kearfott had uever given expression to his view* on the m >n»y question, all who know of his inflexible devotion to his party, know that he would be fashioned by the late dec laration of party principals just made a! Chicago. If he bad been outspoken in his adherence to the gold standard before the Chicago convention, his Democracy is sue! that the mandate of that authority would mould anew his party creed. In all the es seutials of a candidate, Mr. Kearfott is a model, and when he endeavors to keep ex traueous issues out of the canvass, I applaud him for it, and rejoice, "That he is not a pipe for fortune’s finger, to sound what stop she pleases.” Free Coinage. Middleway, July 13, 1*96. Mr. George W. DeGrange, aged sixty nine years, died at Garfield Hospital, in Washington, I). C , on Friday night.

Mr. Campbell, the Princi pal, is a gentleman of large experi ence as an educator,and I take it that in all the requisites to success i n fill ing so important a post, he is not wanting in anything. Thorough knowledge of the books and studies taught, enforcement of discipline,and in t. bp nice relation of Principal and teacher with the pupils, maintaining the amenities of the situation in the happiest manner. So many schools of the kind exist in the country, with a lively competition in practice, that it behooves those at the head to hustle around to some extent, solicit patron age, and in the best possible manner bring their schools before the public. Such being the case, Stephenson Sem inary, for young ladies, is not behind any in advantages. Beautifully situ ated on the eastern outskirt of the town, with a campus of shade and grass of spacious size, a four-story brick building of ample room capaclt v well ventilated, watered and lighted, commanding a view of unprecedented beauty, combining mountain, hill and dale, blending town and country in its location, with every surrouuding to promote health and comfort, where will you find a school with more ele ments to draw? The lot of several acres was the gift of the late John Stephenson, of this town, to be used for such a purpose before the war and after lying a number of years unused, as to the donor's intent, a joint stock company was formed, the present building was erected, and the school put in operation, and 1 unhesitatingly say it is an orna ment and important addition to our county and section and deserves a full patronage. To the Citizens of CharlesTown and Vicinity: On bclialf of the Independent Steam Fire Company, No 1, of Charles Town, I deeire to also make a statement. There i6 yet, due upon Charles Broadw ay Rouse Memorial Hall, the sum of seven Hundred Dollars,—three hundred dollars borrowed money and the bal ance of material bill. Our e: editors are pressing us for the money. Mr. House, who has not only proven himself a friend, but our most generous benefactor, has, as you are aware, donated $2 200 for the building, and has thus contributed having no personal in terest in the town other than a desire to see it prosper in every particular. Our citizens hare not. all told, contributed over two hundred dollars in this enterprise, and some of the subscriptions arc yet unpaid. The Arc company is made up of men who are timiled in means, two or three of the members baring to bear a large per cent of the expenses, out of their own resources. This building which you all prize so much as ;fh ornament to our town* is really the prop erty af the town, and not of the Arc coiupauy. The company, at the present time, receives not a dollar of support from the town, in keeping up the repairs of building and runuiug expenses of the company. All service ren dered to the town by the campanv is done without ouc cent of compensation, and duty is performed ofteu at the risk of health and life purely and alone for the protection of life and property of their fellow citizens. The corporation of the town is tumble to as sist us, and we appeal to von as individvals. men and women, to lend a helping hand in paying off this debt When one gentleman Las so unselfishly contributed so largely to our needs, cannot you. who have done so little, and who are more or less interested in the welfare of oar company, generously help iu this our hour of need. Besides the former amount given by mvself, and labor and time contributed, 1 will give thirty dollars more, or I will be one of seven persons to contribute one hundred dollars each to clear off the debt Yours Htspcctfullv.

Lee Shepherds lown, July 15.—Mr. Edmund Jennings Lee, one of Shepherdstown’s best beloved residents, died yesterday at f ar Rockaway, New York. He had suffered for about a year with an enlargement of the glands of the throat and was iu New Aork undergoing medical treatment when his death occurred. Mr. Lee was a member of the distinguished Lee family of \ irginia, being second cousin of Gen. Robert E. Lee. Richard Henry Lee, a signer of the Decla ration of Independence, was his great grand father on his mother’s side. His father was the late Edmund Jennings Lee, whose fa ther bore tbo same name and was a brother of the famous Light Horse Harry Lee. Mr. Lee entered the Confederate service when but seventeen years of age and served until disabled. He was twice married. His first wife was Miss Rebecca Lawrence Rust, daughter of the late Col. Armistead Rust, of Loudoun county, Va. His three sons by his first wife are Lawrence, Edmund and Armistead. His second wife, who survives him, was Miss Bessie Reed Neilson, daugh ter of Rev. Dr. Win.

Mr. William .Smith and Mias Fannie Wal ter, a runaway couple from Fauquier county, Va., were married in the Carter House par lor, in this place, Monday morning by the Rev. J. W. Tongue, of the M. E.

The couple drove to this place, traveling all night, and were pursued for several miles by the father of the bride, but late in the night tbe father lost the trail and the coaple escaped, Mr. Marshall Burns is keeping up the reputation of his late father in wheat rais ing. Mr. Jas. \V. Bane gives us the report that from 05 acres he threshed 1,575 bushels of wheat, a frection over 24 bushels per acre, in one and one-hall days. This is a splendid yield for this season, when the gen eral average is some eight or ten bushels, a« it is also tip top threshing, being an average of over 1,000 bushels per day. Mr. Jas. Starr, in passing through town on Tuesday last with his steam thresher, in formed a reporter of the Advocate that he had just finished threshing 1G0 acres of wheat in the western section of the county, the whole aggregating a little less than GOO bushels. This is an average of 3f bushels to the acre, which is scarcely a little more than the seed sown last fall. Mr. Starr also tells us that he sold aome of his wheat at 45 cents per bushel, which is below the cost of producting it, even with a full crop. A few more years of gold buggery with an occa sional drouth thrown in for good measure and a majority of our best farming lands will be turned out to commons.—Advocate. A few years of drouth and chinch-buggery would eliminate the currency question so far as the wheat product is concerned. The drouth, however, that struck Mr. Marshall Burns’ sixty-five acres will not impoverish —all other things being equal. Mrs. Ann Douglas Donnelly, one of the oldest and most highly respected citizens of this town, died on Monday evening at her late residence—aged 78 years.

Church, South, and her godly walk and consistent Christian course commended her religion to all who knew her. The last years of her life were J years of pain and irksome confinement, but [ her cheerful, patieut fortitude under suffer ing were unvarying, and it is a blessed thought that she has gone to dwell in that land "whoso inhabitant never saya I am sick,’' and wiiero immortality is swallowed up in life forever with tho Lord.
