McKlnney Give Im portant Evidence Against Scott's Methods. Grafton. W. Va , October 31 ? This has been a busy day and an important one in the case against Hon. N. R. Scott. Some new lines of cvidenco were opened, which not only emphasized all that has been previously said by the witnesses ex amined in behalf of Col. John T. Mi G raw, but souiq new facts were developed which lay bare the con piracy existing upon the pRrt of the Republicans to force the election of Mr. Scott tojlhe United Stales Sen ite. One of the most important of these irw 1 ncs was the introduction c.f Republican witnesses, who proved he tidmirsions.nfter the Legislature idj'-titncd, of Republican Senators vho st.h i high in the leadership of he Senate, that under the evideuce rd the law there was no d uht. in heir minds at the time Senator Kid'd Fas uifeated he was entitled to his eat, liUt that parly necessity forced hem to act contrary to iiw net! iglit. This part.- necessity was ol simply the election ol a United uatcs Senator, because they at nli lines iiad a majority in the joint sscuibly. The necessity was the lection of Scott, and Scott only.and 3 order to eleitt him they had lo in rease their majority "because he 3uld not control under any ciruair. tnnces the united vote of his party. The subject of the contested cases i the House was taken up in de I tail. It was shown that in order to prevent revolutionary tactics upoD the part of Republicans more than their full leual rights were accord id to the KcpublioMi contestants. It was showi. that t li? - Deui'-crats actcd I from the strut with a view lo pre serving ut all hszards llio legally elected Legislature of iheSlate with. I out regard to lis 'fleeI upon the elec tion of a United S! utes Senator. It was shown that tli? D.-tuncrats act eel from the start and throughout the session of the Legislature acted upon the asuraption that Scott must be elected, even though his election sjhouM dentroy the Legislature, pre I vent legislation and bring about a condition or anarchy in the State, j The speech of Altorury General Km Iter in which be threatened the committee on privileges anil elec tions that if they acted :n accordance with their judgement and contrary Lo the dictates of the Republican party blood would flow in the c>ipi tol. and a reign of terror had been agreed upon by the Republicans in solemn council, was cited in proof of this. This was the condition of affairs when the Republicans refused to accede a proposition of the Demo crats that all the matters in contro versy be submitted lo the Supremo Judges of the State, as arbitrators. This was the condition of affairs when the Republicans refused the proposition made by the Democrats to accept a proposition that would give the Republicans a "clear and undisputed majority of one on joint ballot. The lines of evidence that have already been used in Charleston and Pat kersburg have been greatly strengthened by the witnesses here, and Hon. John T. McGraw, who was confident of success before, has had that confidence increased by the tes timony adduced yesterday and to d ay. The nfternorn nas taken up with the evidence of Speaker McKinn<y and R W. Morrow. Speaker Mc Kinney's testimony was given at length ar.d in his testimony, he re fer:ed directly lo the positive state ments made to him by Republican members of the Senate and House that if the compromise agreement was not carried our. that the Repub licans had completed all arrange ment for the formation of a rump Legislature and all contesting Re publican members were present at the time in order to take their seats in the rump Legislature. One of the Republican members of the House told Speaker McKinnev that he was glad that the Democrats had ratifird the agreement because the Republi can members had been instructed in case it WHf not ratified, to march out ?f the ha I.I ar.d at once organize a| rump house. Mr. Morrow's testimony corrobo rated tbat of Mi-Kiom-y in ail esscn tial features The testimony of John T. Mi-Graw consisted of a very thorough review of all the facts in the cise. lie said tbal he fully realized when the pi op osition was submitted to hiui ss to the compromise agreement that it meaot (or him to abandon all hope of a Democrat being elected to the United States Senate but that be consented to it solely for the pur pose of preserving aBepnblican form of governmet^J in the State of West Virginia. The evidence v&Hl be closed to morrow whrn fiorf. more telegram-" urging the in/ "ution of contests will be olTered i* proof. Educate Your Vowels With CaicareU. | Candy Cathartic, care constipation forever. ! Wc,S5c. U C.C.C.faiJ? druggists refund money. Hon. Henry a. Davis for Governor. [From tlic Monroe Watchiuau.] Many excellent men have recently been recommended for the next Democratic nomination for Governor of WestVirginia. I The Democratic party di ffers from the Rc - publican party notably in that its nomina tions are not dictated in advance from the headquarters of a political machine. There is scarcely an informed man in the State who docs not know that next year's Re publican candidate for Governor has al ready been prescribed and that when the Republican convetition meets nine or ten months hence it will be only to automati cally register the will of the ruthless au tocrat who rules that party with a rod of iron. Not so with the Democratic party. In its ranks the rights and responsibilities of the individual are recognized and re spected and its party assemblies arc de liberative bodies wherein all members have equal opportunities and eqtial privi leges. And so we now have many valua ble men presented to the consideration of their party comrades for places on next year's Democratic State ticket, from Gov ernor down. (Jnder these circumstances the Watch man makes no apology for suggesting the nomination of Hou. Henry G. Davis, of Randolph county, to succeed Governor Atkinson. Mr. Davis commenced life as a brakeman ou the B. & O. railway?he is now one of the most distinguished, wealthy and useful citizens of West Vir ginia, an ex-Senator of the United States, a greyliaired gentleman of broad mind and broad possessions?and amid all the changes and chances of his remarkable career he lias ever been a Democrat. In the development of West Virginia he has wrought a mighty and invaluable work. Under his wise and energetic direction and potent influence immense resources in raw material have been developed, coal mines opened, railroads constructed, towns built, and sparsely settled wilder nesses transformed intosccnesof thriving industry teeming with a busy population of many thousands. Having himself known the sweat and travail of labor lie has been just and considerate in his treat ment of the workingman, and that he is looked upon as a friend by his employes is happily attested by the cordial regard in which they hold him. In the domain of public affairs he has acquitted himself with honor and during his term in the United States Senate he represented West Virginia with dignity and ability. In politics Mr. Davis is tolerant of the opinions of others, but in loyalty to the Democratic party he has always been as solid as a rock. In 1896, when so many old line Democrats of large wealth were frightened or bulldozed by the money power into deserting the Democratic par ty. an effort was made by certain Wall street magnates, who conceived that they had him in their power, to coerce Mr. Davis, They threatened him, as they threatened others, that unless he would support Mr. McKinley and the gold stand ard they would withdray their financial backing, force his properties to sale and so ruin him. Hut the rugged old Demo crat never faltered for a moment. He defied them to do their worst and declared his unalterable determination to support Bryan and the cause of free coinage; and when Mr. Bryan visited that portion of West Virginia he presided at one of his greatest meetings and introduced the Democratic nominee for President in a ringing speech in his behalf. Again, in last year's campaign, one of the strongest, most practical arguments it evoked on the Democratic side was Mr. Davis' Piedmont speech. So highly was it regarded that it was printed and many thousands of copies circulated through the State. Mr. Davis has never failed his party in any political battle. He has in variably come to the relief of the impov erished Democratic committees and given freely to eke out the means for maintain ing at least the skeleton of an organiza tion in this far-flung and difficult State? and that, too, when the pocket books of others upon whom the party had stronger claims were closed. If loyalty and devo tion count for aught, Mr. Davis is entitled to the hearty gratitude of every Democrat in the State. We beiieve that this grand old man Tile farmer's wife who raises chickens, knows that they must have food enough first to satisfy bare hunger, then enough more than t h a t to make flesh an<l fat before they will begin to lay. In plain words you've got to put into the hen in the form of food what you get out of it in the shape of eggs. Ail ill nourished hen lays no eggs. The difference between the farmer's wife and%her chickens is that she fancies she can take out of herself in daily cares and toils what she does not put back in the form of nourishment for nerve and liody. But she can't. Sooner or later the woman who tries it breaks down. The warning signs of physical break down are, among others, headache, weak stomach, flatulence, pain in side or back, difficult breathing, palpitation of the heart. These are only some of the in dications of a derangement of the stom ach and organs of digestion and nutri tion. The one sure remedy for this con dition is Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery, which strengthens the stom ach, purifies the blood and nourishes and invigorates the nerves. Mrs. Martha E. Barham. of Newville. Prince George Co.. Va., writes: "I commenced to take Dr. Pierce'# Golden Medical Discovery in Tune, 1897, also his ' Favorite Prescription,* and I can not express the benefit I have received from these medicines. I was suffering with what the doctors called chronic indigestion, torpid liver and vertigo. The doctor did not do me any good. My symptoms were giddines* in head, pains in chest and an uneasy feeling all over. I also suffered with female weakness. 1 was all run-down and could not do any w?rk at all with out suffering from nervous attacks, so I wrote to you for advice. You advised me to use Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery and4 Favorite Prescription.* When I commenced to use the medicines I weighed onlv 1x2 pound*, now 1 weigh 140 pounds. I thank God and Dr. R~ V. Picrcc for my rccovcry." A Word to Doctors We have the highest regard for the medical profession. Our preparations are not sold for the purpose of antagon izing them, but rather as .in aid. Wo j lay it down as an established truth that internal remedies are positively injuri ous to expectant mothers. The distress and discomforts experienced during the months preceding childbirth can bo al leviated only by external treatment?by applying a liniment that softens and re laxes the over-strained muscles. We make and sell such a liniment, com bining the ingredients in a manner hitherto unknown, and call it Mother s Friend We know that in thousands of cases it has proved more than a blessing to expectant mothers. It overcomes morn ing sickness. It relievos the scn&o of tightness.. Headaches cease, and dan ?cr from Swollen, Hard and Rising rensts is avoided. Labor itself is shortened and shorn of most of the pain. We know that many doctors recom mend it, and we know that multitudes of women go to the drug stores and buy it because they arc sure their physfciun's have no objections. We ask a trial? just a fair test. There is no possiblo chance of injmy being the result, be cause Mother's Friend is scientific ally compounded. It is sold at $t a bot tle* and should be used during most of the period of gestation, although great relief is experienced if used only a short time before childbirth. Send for our il lustrated book about Mother's Friend. THE BRADF1ELD REGULATOR CO. ATLANTA. OA. would make a strong and winning race for Governor. We k now that in him West Virginia would have an honorable and dignified Chief Executive, who would safely conserve every public interest, administering the office as a public trust, and whose inlluence would be immense ly for the further up-buildingof the State. To the thought and judgment of the Democrats of West Virginia we earnestly commend these considerations. " Deeds Are Fruit*, Words are but leaves."

"The comparisons that are being made between the struggle* nf the Filipinos for iiidi pendenco and our fights to achievo ouHiidependence appear somewhat ludi crous to me. Wo fought for civilization; they are fighting against it. If any man says that he wants to take any particular part of this globe and fence it off from civizitiou and maintain savagery and barbarity there, then I am against him, and, in tbia case, I am not only an ex pansionist, but an imperialist. " What right have the liners in South Africa, of the Filipino* in the Philip pines, to stsnd in the way of the progress of civiliz ttion 1 When the Cherokees re fused to submit to the usages of civiliza tion in the South we drove them out-? When .Silting Bull and his followers did the rame 'hing in the West, we killed them, and thai is the way we must deal with the Filipinos. 'lie civilized or killed,' sounds like a bloody and cruel command, hut it is not. If a people per sist in standing in the way of the school house, the church, iho railway, the news paper, and the telegraph, they mu?t be run over.
