- * * Chiblbs Tow*. JamsaoB Oorarr. W. Va. TUESDAY MORNING, MARCH 29.1893. District Democratic Conven tions. The Democratic State Executive Committee of West Virginia, at a meeting liuld at Par kershurg, oil January 28. 1893. determined and ordered tbat Democratic conventions be lield in eueta of the Congressional districts ?t the time and place hereinafter named, to select three delegates cach, one of whom In each dis trict shall he a deletrate-at-ltfrgc and also se lect ono alternate for each of said delegates to represent the State In the Democratic National Convention to t>e held at Chicago. III., on June 21st, 1892. and when they shall hare been so selected they shall be duly accredited as delegates to represent this State In said Na tional Convention. And at said district con ventions each of the comities composing the several Congressional districts shall lie entitled to one vote therein for every one hundred votes or fractional part thereof over fifty, cast for the Democratic candidate for President at the election held In 1888. The various County Ex ecutive Committees are requested to take snch action as may be necessary to have tlielr coun ty represented in said conventions. The con ventions will be held on Wednesday, June Ut, 1993, and at the following places: In the First Con gressional district at Weston, in the Second Congressional district at Charles Town. In the Third Congressional district at Charleston, and In the Fourth Congressional district at Ravens wood. The call for the State Convention will be is ?ned later. T. S. RILEY, Chairman. B. II. Oxlkt, Secretary. District Club Convention. Whkreas, It is deemed to the best Interests of the party and tbat it will better serve the majority of the cinbs to hold Congressional Conventions, instead of a State Convention of Clubs, and with a view of making tho organi zation of clubs more efficient by the organiza tion of Congressional District Associations of Clubs; it is therefore ordered that a Conven tion of Democratic Clubs of cach Congres sional district be held on Wednesday, the first day of June, 1892, at the following places : For the First Congrcs-u sional district, at Weston; for the Second Congressional district, at Charles Town ; for tho Third Congressional district, at Charles ton. and for the Fourth Congressional district, at Ravenswood ; for the purpose of organizing District Associations of Democratic Clubs and transacting such other business a* may come before the Convention. In such Conventions local clubs will be entitled to the following rep resentation : All clubs with a membership of one hnndred or less will be entitled to five del egates; with more than one hundred and less than two hundred, seven delegates, and with two hundred or more, nine delegates. The object of calling said Conventions to meet at the same time and place as the Con ventions to elect delegates to the National Con vention. is to afford delegates the opportunity of attending both Conventions, thereby saving Doth time and expense. The County Commit tees aud those heretofore appointed to organize clubs, and all Democrats who believe in such an organization of the party U6 will make it invincible in the coming campaign are re quested to assist in the work ot organizing clubs in every magisterial district and to have properly represented at the Conventions. T. S. RILEY. Chairman of State Committe. WM. C..HANDLAN. Pres. State Asso. of Dem. Clnbs. Walt Whitman, the poet, died at Camden, N. J., Saturday, in his seventy-third jrear. Congressman Roger Q. Mills was unanimously elected United States Senator from Texas. Cleveland secures the two delegates from the District of Columbia to the Democratic National Convention. Another charming story by Eva Wilder McGlasson will be published in the next number of Harper's Bazar. The State Editorial Association will not meet in Charleston in May. The date has been changed to No vember 23d. A remarkable story by DufBeld Osborne, entitled "A Man with a History," is announced to appear in Tlarper's Bazar for April 2d. Baltimore Conference, Methodist Epistopal Church South, at Harrison burg, refused to change the time of meeting of Conference from March to October. The announcement of Mr. John F. Melvin as a candidate for Assessor appears in this issue. Mr. Melvin is a capable, reliable gentleman, and we have no doubt would fill the posi tion with much acceptability. The Preston County Journal, pub lished by W. M. O. Dowson, secre tory of the Republican State Com mittee, claims to speak authorita tively when it says that Mr. Elkins will accept the Republican nomina tion for governor of West Virginia. Senator Hill attempted to dictate to Congressman O'Ferrall, of Vir ginia, as to what the latter should do as chairman of the House committee on elections?t. e., that he should not seat a Republican honestly elected. O'Ferrall spurned the suggestion nnd gave Senator Hill to understand that he was dealing with an honest Virginian, and not a party trickster. The Spirit op Jepperson- ami tlie Farm rrt' Advocate are discussiug th? methods of selecting delegates to our several district cou Tenlions. It matters less what plan is adopted than that it should be of uniform application through the whole district. Uniformity iu this respect would remove a source of differ ence which in the past has been productive of a great deal of Ill-feeling.?Hartinsburg Statesman. It is of vital importance that it should first be settled as to what county a candidate is to be taken from, and then that the candidate should be the choice of a majority (not a minority) of the Democrats of that county. In the House on Thursday there was a prolonged and exciting con test over the silver bill. The debate closed at 5 P. M., and at once a mo tion was made to lay the bill on the table. The result was a tie, with the vote of Speaker Crisp against the m?tion. Then followed dilatory mo tions for adjournment, etc., in quick succession by the opponents of the bill, and much time was consumed in calling the yeas and nays. At 12.35 Friday morning the House ad journed on the motion of Mr. Bland, The bill now takes its place on the calendar, but was expected to be brought up again yesterday. DEMOCRATIC CLUB! Address by Hon. Wm. L. Wilson. Friday Evening, April 1st, 1892, A public meeting, for the purpose of organizing a Democratic Club, will be held at the Court-House in Charles Town, on Friday Evening, April 1st, 1892, at 8 o'clock. The Charles Town Cornet Band will en liven the occasion with good mu sic, and our able Congressman, Hon. Wm. L. Wilson, will open the cam paign with an eloquent address.? Everybody, and especially the ladies, cordially invited to attend. Mr. Wilson Declares for Cleve land. Hon. William L. Wilson, having been invited to deliver an address before the Cleveland Club of Win chester, Va., ha9 written a letter in which he says: "Yours inviting me to address the Cleveland Club of Winchester re ceived. I regret that work is so piled up around me that I cannot see ray way clear to appointing a time when I can visit you in acceptance of your invitation. I am glad to say, however, that I am heartily in accord with what I suppose to be the aim of your club?to work for the re-nomination and re-election of Mr. Cleveland. Every day's observation confirms me in the belief that both consideration of party duty and fidelity to principles and of party success require that we thai) take our last standard-bearer, who has steadily and deservedly grown in the favor and confidence of ths peo ple and our great cause, in whose name we have been marching from victory to victory for the coming Gght. Any other leader means a loss of the popular enthusiasm and popular confidence which are of in calculable momentum in a campaign. Any other issue, especially the one proposed as a rival or substitute, is an apple of discord, rending our party into warring fragments and losing all we have gained in years of sturdy combat." ^ For the State University. Senator Faulkner 1ms secured for the museum of the University of West Virginia one hundred dupli cate sets of alcoholic fishes from the United States National Museum, upon the condition that the Univer sity of West Virginia will furnish the bottles of alcohol for their preserva tion and exhibition. This will not cost the University more than from fifty to seventy-five dollars. Some time ago the Senator secured a large number of geological specimens, and if these now secured ara accepted, they will aid in forming a nucleus of what in the course of time, with other gifts from this and other sources, will become an admirable museum for the University. ? [Martinshurg Statesman. Harper?Neer. A very pretty wedding took place in the First Baptist Church at Mar tinsburg at high noon to-day, the contracting parties being Miss Lillian I. Neer, daughter of Mr. John W. Neer, of that place, and Mr. Will S. Harper, of Ilagerstown, clerk at Aughinbaugh's drug store, and well known in this city. Rev. Hundley, pastor of the church, officiated. The baidesmaid was Miss Ada Evans, of Ilarrisburg, Pa., and the best man was Mr. John Kirby, also of Harris burg. The ushers were Messrs. U. S. G. Pitzer, John W. Neer, of Mar tinsburg, C. C. Moore, of Ilarris burg, and John C. Irving, of Ila gerstown. The* couple marched to the altar to strains of Mendelssohn's wedding march. The happy couple left this evening on their wedding tour for Philadelphia and other east ern cities. The presents were nu merous and very handsome. They will take up their residence in this city upon their return.?Hag. Globe. The Clarksburg Sun, speaking of , the talk about running Win. L. Wil son for governor, says: "Mr. Wilson should remain where he is, and where he is regarded by the country as one of the most bril liant parliamentary leaders in Con gress. He has made many heroic sacrifices for his party, and is proba bly willing to make more, but it is asking and expecting too much to call him from the arena in which he covered himself with glory and his Stale with enduring renown to make the race for Governor." Leading editors and politicians of the State are a unit in the opinion that Hon. Wm. L. Wilson is too prominent a figure in the politics of the nation to be taken from his pres ent position to enter the gubernato rial contest, and also that good men and true are numerous who in head ing the Democratic State ticket would lead the forces to victory. It is further conceded that while there are several men who would fill the ofBcc of chief executive with credit, honor and distinction, there is no man who from the Secoud District ? would fill Mr. Wilson's place inCon^! gress.?Mor. Ney Dominion. / I senator Charles J. Faulkner. The National Farm and Fireside, ^>f Washington city, says of the junior Senator from West Virginia: Few men in the Federal Senate have made a cleaner or more correct record in the interest of the farmers than Senator Charles J. Faulkner, of West Virginia. In and out of season be has battled to advance the welfare of bis State and country. Hi9 every vote has been recorded against mo nopoly combinations, and all kinds of oppressions that have been placed1 upon the people by the legislation of Congress. Senior Faulkner has stood square ly on the platform in the interest of agriculture, and no Senator has done more to bring about the results that have been obtained of recent years for the relief *f the American farm ers than be. .During bis first year in the Senate, in the Forty-ninth Congress, he was noted as one of the most active, en ergetic, and aggressive opponents, in both the committee and the Senate, of the attempt which was made to au thorize the ownership of large tracts of our Western lands by foreign syndicates and speculators. In the Fiftieth Congress he intro duced the Faulkner Pure Food Bill (upon which the bill passed this week was constructed, as was also the very important measure known as the Meat Inspection Bill, which has opened the European markets to our meat products.) Having taken ttie initiative, in these most important measures, Sen ator Faulkner has stood squarely by them, and from the beginning to the end has faithfully and honestly rep resented the interest of his constit uents and the farmers of the country ?but not alone in these measures but in all others, that have affectcd the farmers, has this gentleman been found working and voting for their interest and welfare. While stead fastly standing by the farmers' inter est he has steadily climbed to leader ship in the Senate among his party associates, and no man in the Senate to-day stands higher or is more thoroughly appreciated as a clear headed, honest, and earnest party leader than Charles J. Faulkner, the friend of the farmer. A*Card. Mr. Editor:?I notice in the last issue of your Valuable . and influen tial paper a communication from "Jefferson," suggesting my name for the Legislature. Permit me to return my profound thanks to "Jef ferson." and to say that I have not the slightest idea or intention of being a candidate for the Legisla ture. Kindly also remove my name from the candidates' column, as I have no desire to be one of the "anx ious few" and of the "disappointed many." I aui content to remain in the rank and file, always willing and ready to help my friends, and to vote the Democratic ticket at all times and under all circumstances. W. W. Brown. . Kabletown, March 23, 1892. Mr. Benjamin Winn, a brother-in law of Senator Faulkner, died Fri day of pneumonia. Gov. Fleming has appointed Hon. A. It. Unger, of Morgan county, treasurer of Berkeley Springs, vice Isaiah Buck, deceased. Judge Lucas has announced his in tention of declining a re-nomination to the position he now holds. When his term is ended he expects to devote a large portion of his time to the con genial occupation of literary work. His position of Judge of the Court of Appeals is the most laborious and poorly paid in the State. The pro fession will regret to hear of his de termination. No Judge of this Court has ever stood higher in their estima tion, and if possible they would like to retain his learning, industry and ability which have made for him such an excellent record during his short term. ?Martinsburg Statesman. A Sensible Man Would use Kemp's Balsam for the Throat* and Lungs. It is curing more cases of Coughs. Colds. Asthma, Bronchitis, Croup and all Throat and Lung Troubles, than any other medicine, The proprietor has authorized any druggist to give you a sample Bottle Free to convince yon of the merit of this great remedy. Large bottles fiOc. and 91. Mch22-4w. The proposition to ask Hon. W. L. Wilson to resign bis seat in Congress to become a candidate for Governor Las been pretty well discussed by our State exchanges, and with hut one or two exceptions the whole State press oppose the scheme. If the ftate papers voice the sentiment of the people (which will be generally admitted), Mr. Wilson will give better satisfaction by remaining in the house of Representatives, where his services are so much needed at the present time.?Charleston Gaz. Demand vs. Suppi.t.?So great has been the demand for those beautiful "Crayon Por traits" given away by J. II. Beaehley <fc Co. that thoy have been unable to supply them. Recently, however, they have made arrange ments with the 4,Art Company** to extend their contract for three months longer. All tickets that have been issued or that may be issued will be good until July i. 1892. A gol den opportunity will be lost "if you fail to get one of these crayon portraits of yourself or friend. You ake Going to Movb April 1st, and. if you dou't. you will want Carpets. Oil ?'loths, Matting, Window Shades. Curtain Poles. Looking Glasses. Jfcc. Beaehley Co. beg of you to come and ?ee their stock before yon buy. Take our word for it. we will nave you uionev by buying fr?m us. There is no stock equal to ours this side of the eastern cities. Governor Fleming informs tlie Gazette that the alleged interview with him. published in a recent issue of the National Democrat, purport ing to give his views on the Demo cratic prospects in West Virgnia this fall, misrepresents and misquotes him. lie did not give it as his opin ion that the influx of new voters into the State since 1888 would make it hard for the Democrats to win, but said, rather, that the Republicans were claiming that these new voters made the State Republican. Gover nor Fleming says his own opinion is that these new voters do not endan ger the success of the Democratic party this fall. We ire glad- to cor rect the erroneous impression re garding Governor Fleraing'3 views. [Charleston Gazette. msuirea Dy a reegro Human. Fred Thomas, the receiving clerk of the Norfolk ? Western freight office, accompanied by bis wife and children, bare been visiting friends in the North, and on- their return were compelled to stop over at Shenandoah Junction. Mr. Thomas was strolling along on the platform while his wife and baby were in the waiting room. Lewis Toun. a negro and ex-convict from the West Vir ginia penitentiary, approached her and made some insulting remarks. Mrs. Thomas becamc very much frightened and called her husband, who, as soon as he ascertained what the scoundrel hud said, attacked him, but was no matdli for the rascal. The negro, being about to get the ad vantage of his assailant, a peddler present grabbed a heavy iron poker and tlruck the scoundrel across the back with such violence as to bend the poker, disabling the negro, end ing the encounter. No arrest was made, as Mr. Thomas did not wish to be detained, and as the negro's destination was Roanoke, he tele graphed to have an officer in waiting when the train arrived. Mrs. Thomas, we understand, was a Miss Rush, of the viciDity of Vanclevesville, Berke ley county. The above, from the Advocate, is about as we understand the circum stances from persons at the Junction. The Roanoke Times says that Toun was arrested and tried before Justice Turner of that place. The Times says: The lady during the examination completely broke down and could not finish her statement of the negro's outrageous conduct. Her hasband related the punishment that was given Touns by him self and several others. Touns who is a stout, repulsive looking negro, attempted to play crazy by talking about machin ery running and birds singing when questioned about the occurrence, but he managed to get himself in a net when pressed and said he meant his remarks for another person who was in the room with Mrs. Thomas. Justice Turner.although the crime was committed in West "Virginia, said that he would not turn the man loose, and sentenced him to the chain gang for thirty days. Touns was very unruly after being locked up, and threatened to do mischief when he got an opportunity. He said that if he had gotten hold of a pistol before his arrest he would have shot Mr. Thomas and the other gentleman who were administeing a much de served threshiner to him for his insult ing remarks to Mrs. Thomas. Taken for a Crank. A semi-fiendish delight often aectne to pos sess people of strong nerves in sneering at those with weak ones The irritability of the ner vous hypochondriac is ridiculed as natural ill temper. Tlte very genuine and distressing symptoms from which he suffers are made lieht of. "He" or "she is a crank!" Is the cheerful sort of sympathy with which the ner vous invalid meets from the unfeeling and the thoughtless. At the same time no complaint is more defined and real, none has a more easily explainable origin when it is chronic.? Imperfect digestion and assimilation are al ways accompanied by nervous debility and anxiety. Build up the powers of assimilation and digestion with Hostetter's Stomach Bitters, and nervous symptoms, sick headaches and a generally feeble condition of the system are remedied. Remember that fearful ravages are produced by la grippe ainone weakly, nervous people. Hostetters Stomach Bitters cures it, and prevents miliaria, rheumatism and kidney complaint. A fire in the folding-room of the House of Representatives last Tues day evening destroyed a large num ber of public documents. One day last week "Uncle" Buck Branson, who works for Mr. Shep. Lucas, was hauling a load of fodder with a four-horse team. When near Mr. John Rene's he discovered that the fodder was afire, and it blazed so fiercely that there was barely time to unhitch the horces and lead them away from the wagon. The fodder and wagon were completely consum ed. How the fire was started is a mystery yet unsolved.?Register. of Kendallville, Ind.t says Hood's Hood's Sarsaparilla Is King of Medicines And His Core Was Almost a Miracle 44 C. I. Hood & Co., Lowell, Mass. "Gentlemen: When I was 14 years of age I was confined to my bed for several months by an attack of rheumatism, and when I had partially recovered I did not have the use of my legs, so that I had to go on crutches. About a year later, Scrofula, in the form of White Swellings, appeared on various parts of my body, and for eleven years I was an invalid, being con fined to my bed aix years* In that time ten or eleven of these sores appeared and broke, causing me great pain and suffering. Several times pieces of bone worked out of the sores. Physicians did not help me and I Became Discouraged 44 I went to Ohicago to visit a sister, as it was thought a change of air and scene might do me good. But I was confined to my bed most of the time. I was so impressed with the success of Hood's Sarsaparilla in cases similar to mine that I decided to try 1L So a bottle was bought, and to my great gratification the sores soon decreased, and I began to feel better. This strengthened my faith in the medicine, and in ashort time I was Up and Out of Doors To make a long story short, I continued to take Hood's Sarsaparilla for a year, wben I bad become so fully released from the chains of disease that I took a position Kith the Flint & Walling Mfp. Co.,and since that time have not lost a single clay on account of sickness. I always feel well, am In good spirits, and have a good appetite. 1 endorse Hood's Sarsaparilla for It has been a great blessing to me, and to my friends my recovery seems almost mirac ulous. I think Hood's Sarsaparilla Is the king of all medicines." William A. I.Kim, Mo. 8 North Kailroad St., Kendallville, Ind. Hood's Pills can Biliousness. November 10, 1891?ly. ARE THE BEST. VANILLA.
