The State election in Alabama yes

victory for the regular Democratic
ticket, headed by Governor Jones.
Col. B. D. Gibson, of this county,
was prominently mentioned for
attorney general at Parkersburg last
week, and bad a good many friends
in tbe State Convention.
Tbe Democratic nominee for gov

State ticket, as a whole, is a strong
one, and will poll a rousing vote.

Our popular young townsman For
rest W. Brown, Esq., bad a very
flattering vote to back him for attor
ney general in tlie Democratic State
Convention last week. But for the
nomination of Mr. Johnson (also of
this district) for auditor, Mr. Brown
would have gone into the convention
with nearly five hundred votes, and
been nominated on the first ballot.?
After the nomination of auditor from
this district the attorney general was
by many conceeded to the first dis
trict, and Mr. Brown's name was
not, therefore, presented to the con
vention. Mr. Brown is, however,
not only one of the ablest young law
yers in the State, but personally pop

political preferment is bound to come.
The Washington Post of Thursday
reports a conversation at the Riggs
House between Col. G. \V. Z. Black
and Hon. Jas. D. Butt of this State.
The latter indorsed all that Col. Black
had to say in regard to the politics
of the Mountain State, and this was
to the effect that Hon. G. W. Atkin
son of Wheeling should be the Re
publican candidate for governor, he
being the one man who caD win.?
Happily, however, the Democrats
have thought the Republicans might
be laboring under the wild belief that
they can carry WestVirginia this fall,
and in order to put a quietus upon such
an attempt the State Convention at
Parkersburg has put a ticket in the
field that will challenge their utmost
efforts, and annihilate whoever
they may name. MacCorkle will do
the business for the Republican nom
inee, and dou't you forget it.

The 6tate Convention.
Having been suffering from a se
vere cold since our return from Par
kersburg, we copy from the Shep
herdstown Register the following very
correct report of the proceedings of
the Democratic State Convention.
The biggest, jolliest, uoisest, most
unruly, most earnest, most enthusi
astic political gathering ever held in
West Virginia, was the Democratic
Stato [convention at Parkersburg
this week. From its assembling on
Wednesday morning until its ad
journment'Thursday night it was al
most continuous excited meeting, the
adjournments only being for a few
hours for eating and a little sleep.?
Through all the excitement, however,
the work was pushed right along, and
the convention put before the people
an extremely strong and eminently
Chairman Riley called the conven
tion to order at 11 o'clock Wednes
day morning and prayer was offered
by Bishop Peterkin. Governor Flem
ing was made temproary chairman,
Col. Bernard Peyton temporary sec
retary, and the usual committees
were appointed. At the afternoon
session Senator Charles J. Faulkner
was chosen as permanent chairman
nnd Col. Peyton secretary and W. E.
R. Bryne assistant secretary, with a
vice-chairman from each district.?
The usual number of speeches were
made, and the enthusiasm of the del
gates was worked up to such a pitch
that the convention became a pande
monium, and Chairman Faulkner bad
the effort of his life on hand in try
ing to preserve order.
At the evening session the various
candidates for Governor were put in
nomination. On the first ballot Mac
Corkle received 298 votes, Bennett
284, Eastham 132, and Sydenstrickcr
74. It required 394 votes to nomi
nate, and a second ballot was order
ed. MacCorkle began to gain greatly,
and the counties flocked to him until
he had many more than enough and
his nomination was made unanimous.
On the first ballot for Auditor,
Johnson got 120 votes. Garden 135,
Duffy 103, Summers 92, Armstrong
56, Tippett 41, Hanna 40, Hnndley
42, Bowen 81, McEldowney 86.
Then the changes began, and the con
test narrowed down to a bitter and
intensely exciting fight between John
son and Garden. Johnson finally
won by received 466 votes to Gar
Col. John 31. Rowan was nomina
ted for Treasurer on the first ballot,
bis opponents being Will A. Strickler
and J. C. Hale.
Virgil A. Lewis was nominated for
State Superintendent of Schools over
R. A. Armstrong, John D. Sweeny
and Thomas E. Hodges.
Ihoroas b. Riley and 15. 1'. Hidd
were nominated for Attorney-Gen
eral. Riley won, having 443 votes
to Kidd's 343.
Marmaduke II. dent was nomina
ted for Supreme Judge, long term,
over Joseph Moreland, R. W. Monroe
and Wra. C. Clayton. Homer A.
Holt was nominated for the short
term over John W. Harris. C.
Wood Daily and Samuel S. Vinson
were chosen as electors-at-Iarge.
For nearly every nomination there
was a red-hot fight, and every point
was earnestly and vigorously con
tested, but when the lucky man was
announced the strife ceased and the
best of feeling prevailed among the
former foes. There was not a trace
of bitterness when the convention

The Second Congressional District
Convention was called to order at
llie Court House in Grafton at 10
9'clock Tuesday morning by J. Hop
Woods, of Barbour comity, acting as
chairman of the Executive Commit
tee, in the absence of the regular
chairman, C. Wood Daily, of Key6er.
W. G. Brown, of Kingwood, and
Editor Boyer, of Berkley county,
were made Chairman and Secretary.
On motion of Delegate T. P. Reay,
of Monongalia county, the Chicago
platform was adopted "without
change in the crossing of a T or the
dotting of an I." An additional res
olution was afterward adopted com
mending in strong terms all of Con
gressman Wilson's record. Nomi
nations being in order for District
Elector, S. V. Woods, of Barbour,
and Bernard L. Butcher, of Randolph
were named, but Mr. Woods with
drew bis name and Mr. Butcher was
nominated by acclamation, and re
turned feeling thauks to the conven
tion for the honor.
J. Hop Woods, of Barbour coun
ty, in an eloquent and felicitous
speech, nominated Wm. L. Wilson
for his sixth consecutive race for
Congress from the Second Congres
sional District. The rules were sus
pended and the nomination made by
acclamation amid great applause.
A committee was appointed to no
tify Mr. Wilson of his nomination,
and they returned to the hall in a
few minutes, Mr. Wilson accompany
In response to the calls for a
speech Mr. Wilson said:
"This is the sixth time j'Oit have
conferred upon me the highest honor
in your gift and called me to take up
the most laborious task you can ex
act on any citizen of this district.?
But I assure you it is not the honor,
great as it is, that I think of, or the
task, impossible as I know it is of
satisfactory fulfillment, but of the
unvarying and abundant personal
and political friendship with which
you have followed me from year to
year in my lengthening career as
your Representative. As I look out
from this sitfftd into the faces of
those who have thus welcomed me
from convention to convention. 1
cannot trust myself to say what I
feel in gratitude for their friendship.
I have sometimes feared that I might
wear out my welcome with the Dem
ocrats of the Second distrsct, ("Cries
of'No!'*] but I call you to witness
that this is your own spontaneous
act, and I assure you if I had dis
covered anywhere in the district any
substantial opposition to my renomi
nation, I should have promptly shown
my sense of the honors you have al
ready done roe by declining to push
a contest for new honors.
-??ie an niiuer^Luiiu mat a nomi
nation in West Virginia now means
a stubborn contest and that we have
to fight earnestly for the victories we
achieve, but if the battle before us
in the State and district is to be a
bard one I know, in the words of our
great leader, that our party is strong
and that it ha3 never failed to do its
full duty. I am sure we shall do
that duty in this campaign, and that
West Virginia will not depart from
the faith her people have cherished
for a hundred years whenever they
have been free to express their opin
Mr. Wilson then referred to the
great meeting he had recently attend
ed in New York, and to the union of
Democrats in that and other northern
states. Eight years ago he had stood
on this same platform to accept a re
nomination to Congress, when on the
party banner was inscribed the
name of the almost unknown Gov
ernor of New York. Again that
name, now grown to be that of the
great Democrat and great leader,
was on the banner, and he believed
that a second victory would rejoice
the hearts of all Democrats.
He declared that the issues of the
campaign were the tariff and free
elections in the States. In his trip
to the Pacific Coast and in canvassing
in New England he had found the
party everywhere united and enthu
siastic on these issues, than which
there could be none greater, and that
enthusiasm and union meant victory.
He had doubtless met the disappro
val of some of his constituents in de
clining to commit the party to another
issue, but he felt that be was not
called upon to drive a wedge into the
party that would split it hopelessly
and almost sectionally. After a few
more remarks, Mr. Wilson again
thanked the members of the conven
tion, and pledged that in any calls
for campaign work made upon him
he would not neglect his own State
or his own district. Mr Wilson re
turned to Washington in the evening
and did not go on to Parkersburg,
as lie expected to do.

Sketch of Col. Wm. A, Mac
The Charleston Gazette furnishes
the following biographical sketch of
Col. W?n. A. MacCorkle,the Demo

"William A. MacCorkle was born
near Lexington, Rockbridge coanty,
Va., on the 7th of May, 1858. He
is the oldest son of the late Wm.
MacCorkle, also a native of Rock
bridge county, Va. He comes from
a long line of Scotch Presbyterian
ministers and elders. When William
was only four years old his father
died, having removed with his family
to Missouri. Previous to the war
the elder MacCorkle was in excellent
circumstances, but near the closc of
the war he was utterly broken up by
the invasion of the Federal armies
into Virginia. William and bis
mother therefore had a struggle in
life, but the boy was remarkable for
his energy and preservance, and
worked hard to support his mother.
Mrs. MacCorkle and her three chil
dren returned to Virginia, and Wil
liam entered the Washington and Lee
University at Lexington, from which
he subsequently graduated?from
the law course of that institution?
when only twenty years of age. He
was a remarkably hard student.?
His mother states that she never saw
him asleep at any time while attend
ing school except when she saw him
lying across a table with his head bur
ied in a book. Hard labor has been
the foundation of his success. Soon
after graduating from Washington
and Lee University he came to
Charleston to seek his fortune. He
arrived here in the year 1879 almost
penniless and taught one term of a
private school. By this means he
was enabled to support himself and
at the same time render some assist
ance to his widowed mother, till he
was enabled to gain some practice in
the profession of law. He succeeded
in building up a lucrative practice
and since his residence in Charleston
has been very successful at the bar.
The only civil office he ever held or
sought wa3 that of city solicitor of
Charleston, which he held for three
consecutive terms. At present he is
largely interested financially in var
ious business interest of Charleston
and of the State. He has given a
great deal of thought and labor to
the material development of West

congratulations to the party and to the people
of the State, in view of the niagnifieier.t ma

State under the influence of Democratic prin
ciples which have controlled its administra

We approve and ratity the platform of ?rin

Cleveland for President and Adlai E. Steven

We congratulate the people of the State of
West Virginia upon its rapid growth, iuercase
of population and material interests. With
the completion of railroads now under con
struction. and those projected, we 11133' look
foiward to the time when there will be even
more rapid development and increase in the
value of property. The finances of the State
have never been in a more healthy or satisfac

by Democratic administrations in strictly en

ies. and of prohibiting the release of bonded
6fficers; sheriffs have been prompt in collect
ing and turning over the public moneys which !
have been sufficient to meet all of the" govern-j
mental expenditures. With an increased vftj
uution made in purpuanec of law, of twenty,
six millious of dollars, the revenues will be
more than sufficient to meet all proper and
economical charges, leaving a surplus in the
treasury. We therefore would recommend to

chairman of the Indiana State Republican
Committee, then Treasurer of the United
States, and officers of theNational Republiean
committee, in co-operation with certain lead
ers of the Republican party in West Virginia,
to colonize onr State t?y the introduction of an
ignornnt. thriftless and debased class of North
Carolina negroes, to lower the wages of our
honest, intelligent and independent working
men by their competition; to debauch the bal
lot and corrupt the sufiragc of our people, for
the purpose of fastening Republican misrule
upon tlie State, and placing portions of it un
der Negro domination.
We congratulate tbe people upon the econ
omy and wisdom of the expenditures by the
Democratic party sinee it lias bad control of
the State, and we refer with pride to tbe fact
that when it was transferred from Republican
control to the ?uardii n-hip of the Democratic
party, little, had been done in the erection of
those public institutions essential iu the devel

Within the brief period of its control by the
