SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON.
Cunn Tows, J*rrtaaon Cotmrr, W. Va. TUB8DAY MOBN1NG, JUNE 21, 1893. Democratic State Convention. The Democratic State Committee of West Virginia, at a mecUughcld at Parkermbar^. on . January 88tb, 1893, determined and ordered that Uie Democratic State Convention to nom inate candidate* for the offlcca of flovernor, ? 8tal0 Superintendent of Free School*, Auditor, - Treasurer, Attorney General, nnd two JudfreB of tbe Supreme Court of Appeals, and to select two Presidential Electors at large, and trans act sucli other busiuots ?? may properly coiuo bejore the convention, will be beld on Wednes day, July 27tb, A. D. 1892, at tbe City of Par kcrsburg, in the County of Wood. Aild at said Convention each of the counties In tbe State will beentilied to one vote therein for every one hundred votes or fractional part thereof over fifty, cast for the Democratic can didate for President of the United States at tbe election beld In IS8S. nnd that no county shall be entitled to more delegate* than the hnt ?off to caet. Tbe various county executive committees are requested to take such action as may be necessary to have their county represented In raid convention. All persona, regardless of \ former party affiliations, who believe in tarifl ' reform and au honest and economical admin istration of government, thereby securing ta tbe people a reduction of taxation, are invited to co-uperato with Uie Democratic party in sending delegates to said convention..

Wilson, it is thought, *; will be made permanent chairman of the Chicago convention. V Ex-Secretary Whitney declares emphatically that Cleveland will be nominated on the first ballot. Therearein WestVirginia487 miles of McAdamized road, of which Berke ley county has 27 miles and Jefferson 60 miles. Ovcr_ Ave hundred citizens of Hampshire county have signed a call to Hon. \ym. L. Wilson to address - them at Romncy at au early day. Emmons Blaine, son of ex-Secre tary-Blaine died Saturday at his home in Chicago. Blood poisoning, the result of inflammation of the bowels, was the cause. Which shall prevail?a small con tingent in New York or the great , Democratic masses of the entire country ? That is the question to be decided in Chicago this week. Whitelaw Reid, Republican nom inee for vice-president, has for many years closed the doors of the Tribune office to Union printers. Organized laboring forces will remember this. Congressman Wm. L. \ViI30n has announced a competitive examination June 29, at Charles Town, for an ap pointment from this congressional district to a naval cadctship at Au liapolis. I It is claimed by the friends of Mr. Cleveland and conceded by those who have been opposing the ex-President's candidacy that the fight is over, and that Mr. Cleveland will be nominated. It is understeed that ex-Gov. Israc P. Gray, of Indiana, will be the can didate for the vice-presidency. Prominent Rcpubl ioaus in Wash ington are very much worried over the trohhle that has grown out of the nomination of Whitelaw Reid for Vice-President in connection with the labor organizations, and it is said the Republican national committee will consider the advisability of taking ?bis name off the ticket. The Washington Star of Saturday said J The rumored proposition to bring forward Representative Wilson of West Virginia in opposition to the nominee of the 'national committpe for the temporary chairmanship of the Chicago convention looks both like war in the camp, and conGdcnce on the Cleveland side of it. Prof. St. George Tucker Brooke, of the law department of the State University, is the author of a book just issued, on " Common Law Pleading and Practice in West Vir ginia.". It is designed as a textbook for the West Virginia law student, and at the same time there are cita tions to all the authorities, making it a valuable volume to all practitioners. Washington and Lee University has conferred the degree of Doctor of Divinity upon Rev. R. II. Flem ing, of Virginia; Rev. J. A. Preston, Alabama; Rev. Scolly Moore, West ?Virginia; Rev. A. M. Cackley, West Virginia; Rev. J. II. Ilundley, Vir ginia. Degree of LL. D. upon Bishop George W. Peterkin, of West Virginia; Bishop E. R.

We last week made out first visit to Roanoke, Va., the occasion being the Decentennial Celebration of that magic inland cityi which took placc ou Friday and faturday. The celebration was openen Friday evening with a grand free concert and other exercises in the Sam Jones ta bernaclc, an immense building capa ble of seating five thousand persons, which was well filled until the close, after eleven o'clock. The opening prayer was made by Rev. Dr. W. C. Campbell, the historical address by Col. John E. Fenn and the oration by Gen. H. Kyd Douglas. The historian gave an interesting sketch of the ear ly days of Roanoke, when the Shen andoah Valley Railroad, ten year ago, tapped,the Norfolk and Western at what was then Big Lick, a quiet vil lage of four or five hundred inhabi tants,following with data showing the great andrapid growthof the city since that time.The address ofGen.Douglas was replete with humor, good sense and information, complimentary to the great and growing city and her good people. The parade on Saturday was a grand affair, and greatly exceeded our most sanguine expectations.? There, were in line about fiiftcen hundred malitia, including the 2d and 4th Virginia regiment, V. M. I. cadets, Blacksburg cadets, and com panies from Salem and Winston, N. C., and Hagerstown, Md. Some eleven bands of music enlivened the route of possession. The Roanoke Machine Works turned out eleven hundred uniformed men, with their own excellent band at the head-of the column The trades display was a mngnificient one, and would have done credit to a city of much older and larger growth. A base ball game and sham battle enlivened the afternoon, and were witnessed by an immense throng. At night the celebration was brought to a close with a firemen's parade and pyrotech nic display. The number of visitors in the city has been variously esti mated at from ten to fifteen thous and. The growth of Roanoke,in the short space of ten years, has been marvel ous. The population has incr eased from four or five hundred to some twenty or twenty-five thousand, the assessed value of its property from a mere nominal sum to $12,600,000, its banking capital from $150,000 to $900,000, and from a contracted area in 1882 it now covers several square miles, many of its buuildings being of the most handsome and costly character. The success of this grand celebra tion is due in the greatest measure, we believe, to the business tact and indomitable energy of Mr. Jas. S. Simmons, at one time a resident of Charles Town and well known to our people. To him and the good peo ple of Roanoke we return many thanks for courtesies extended. Roanoke is closely allied to Charles Town, and iu witnessing the events of its great celebration last week we felt some degree of pride that our town and county had to a considera ble degree contributed towards its moval and material development.? Rev. W. C. Campbell of the First Presbyterian Church, went from Har per's l'erry to Roanoke; Rev. Dr. W. H. Meade, rector of St. John's Episcopal Church, was for a number of years rector of Zion Church in this place. Mr. Jas. S. Simmons, chairman of IheDecentennialCommit tee and a prosperous real estate agent was a former resident of Charles Town, as was also Mr. J. C. Raven port, marshal of one of the divisions in tlie procession, and cashier of the Commercial National Bank; Mr. W. W. Coe, Chief engineer of the N. & W. R. R. Mr. J. Shirley Smith, secretary and treasurer of the Mineral al Wool Company; A. B. Hammond, of the Hammond Prinliug Works. Mr. John E. Hough, member of the City Council; and Messrs. Oiin Beall, T. J. Martin, M. L. Avis, \V. II. Iloadrick, and others whose names we cannot now recall?to say nothing of the good housewives we have sent there to be helpmates to industrious husbands, and the large amount of capital some of our citizens have invested there.

The spring medicine for purifying the blood. Use Light & Watson's Compound Extract of Sarsaparilla. It is reported that au attempt was made a few nights ago to wreck the northbound | assen^er train on the ! Norfolk and Western at Shepherds town. As the train was crossing the big trestle work, which is ninety feet high, the engineer discovered in front of the engine a heavy piece of timber stuck between the ties. The engine, however, broke through the timber, and a terrible disaster was averted. The train was filled with passengers.! [Hagerstovcn Globe. Capt. John H. Ziltle, of Shep-! berdstown, W. Va., who is well-! known in this city, has lost the sight of one of his eyes, caused from the effects of the crippe. He has suf fered three attacks from this disease. The last one, from which he is about recovering, although somewhat mild, has left its banefnl influence in the destruction of the sight of his left eye. He was fearful at one time thai the sight of both eyes would be come impaired.?Hagentoxcn Globe. Smootz Sentenced. Judge Faulkner on Thursday over ruled the motion for a new trial in the case of Harry F. Smootz, con victed of the murder of Miss Susie Cameron Fcrreil, and proceeded to pass sentence upon him. When called upon by the clerk to know if he had anything to say why the court should not pronounce judgement upon him, the prisoner responded that he had nothing to say. Judge Faulkner in his remarks to the prisoner, preparatory to to sentencing him, spoke of the crime, the defense of insanity interposed, the careful aud conscien tious manner in which the jury had weighed the evidence, and the un broken attention given by tbem all through the trial; the skill and nbil ity displayed by his counsel in mak ing out the defence and conducting the trial. But it now bccame the duty of the court to pronounce sen tence, as the law dirccts. In doing so the judge alluded to the fact that the execution would not bring back the life of the innocent girl, an only daughter and the idol of her parents, nor would it relieve the sorrowing hearts of her aged grandparents.? Society, justice and law demanded a life for a life in such casses, and when the prisoner fired the fatal shot on that winter evening, whether from hatred, passion, jealously or other cause, when his helpless victim was surrounded by merriment and joy, he forfeited all claim to freedom and life. The devotion of the brothers | and sisters of the prisoner was spoken of by the judge, and the sympathy of the community for them. He ad monished the prisoner of his time yet to humble himself before that great Judge who rules with love and mer cy, and that by the honest, earnest and sincere appeals alone of the pris oner could he be heard in that court, and it was the hope of the judge that he might fully realize his condition aud prepare to meet his God. The judge than sentenced the pris to be banged on Friday, October 7 next, between the hours of 10 and 2, in the jail-yard at Charlestown, and the sheriff was directed to execute the sentence. While sentence was being pronounced the prisoner stood in a motionless manner and received the judgment of the court without the slightest failure of nerve. His counsel served six bills of ex ceptions during the trial and an ap plication will be made to the Court of Appeals or a writ of error to the judgment of this, court. Four bills of exceptions go to the serving as ju rors on the case of Robt. H. Phillips, T. E. Clevenger, J. D. Clapp and Erank N. Moler. The other two are to the language used by the prose cuting attorney in his closing speech, the offence given by the crowd at such remarks, and the language heard by the juror Robert R. Smith on his way to the court-house from the hotel, after the case had been closed and argued, when he heard some one say "If you can't we can." The juror stated that this language made no impression upon him. Mrs. W. K. Fkancis Is the wife of one ot the best known phar macists tn New Haven, doing boslness at 141 Dlxwell Ave., and ex-presldent of the Connec ticut Pharmaceutical Association. He says: "My wife was for several years in bad health, due to a complication of disorders. Friends persuaded her to take Hood's Sana parilla; she took 6 or 8 bottles and Is cer tainly a great deal better since, in every way." Mrs. Martha Beed of 1835 Ramsey street, Baltimore, Md., voluntarily says: " For over 2 years I suffered with a Complication of Diseases till the summer found me a confirmed Invalid, blood poor, appetite gone, bowels out of order, and 1 was miserable in mind sad b*dr. 1 read of such wonderful cures per formed by Hood's Sarsaparllla that, at last, 1 thought I would try a bottle, as, If It didn't make me better. It could not make me worse. It did make me better, and on my third bottle I found myself almost A New Woman I will gladly convince any lady, as I have proved to myself, that purifying and enrich ing the blood, which Hood's Sarsaparllla does to perfection.
