SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON.
Crablvb Towf, JBrruHHOs Couwtt, W. Va. TUESDAY MORNING, MAY 1. 1P00. CJro. W, Haines. - Editor and Proprietor. ?1.50 in Advance ; $2 if not Paid in Advance. Judge Faulker wfll hold a special term of the Jefferson Circuit Court to-day. By a vote of 52 to 3 Nathan B. Scott, of West Virginia, was on Friday declared a member of the Senate. The negative votes were cast by Messrs. Morgan, Pet tus and Turner. Hon. Samuel V. Woods, of Barbour county, is spoken of as a delegate to the Democratic National Convention. He would make a tip-tob one,.as would also Col. Forrest W. Brown, of Jefferson. We pay exactly one hundred per cent. MORE to-day for our print paper than we did a year ago. Double trice. Will not the West Virginia Press Associa tion, at its coming meeting, have some thing to say in regard to the tariff and the trusts? Why is the West Virginia State Demo cratic Convention called for such an early date as June 6, one month previous to the meeting of the National Convention? Does the State Convention expect to dictate a platform for the National Con vention, or does it expect to go into the campaign without any platform at all ? It is said that Mrs. Dewey's first hus band won a town site at cards. Mrs. Dewey is playing for higher stakes than a town site.?Ex. We apprehend Mrs. Dewey will be scarcely more successful than the man sent out 011 a certain occasion to look after a site of another kind, who reported that he found "a dam by a mill-site, by no mill by a dam-site." Mr. R. W. Morrow, as will be seen by reference to another column, is for mally announced as a candidate for County Delegate in the West Virginia Legislature. Mr. Morrow served as District Delegate in the last Legislature, proved an active member, and acquired considerable prominence. He now seeks the endorcement of a return to that body, and so far has a clear field to him felt. Col. J. Garland Hurst makes formal announcement this week that lie is a candidate for the Democratic nomination for State Senator from this district. Col. Hurst lias served tlie people well and faithfully in the lower house of the State Legislature, and now seeks honorable promotion. He is well known as one of the first citizens of our county, true and faithful to every trust, reliable and con sernative. and al ways polls a rousing vote. The announcement of Mr. \\ . I*. Hell, of Shenandoah Junction, as a candidate for Assessor in the First District appears in our paper to-day. Though a little late in getting into our columns, " Jack' . has been by no means idle in the matter of canvassing. He is a gentleman of pleasant address, has many triends, would doubtless fill the office he seeks with abi. itv, and will make a big hustle to get there with both feet on-a^solid foundation. The announcement of Mr. m*. Camp bell as a candidate for State Senator ap pears in this issue. Mr. Campbell ran up on the Democratic ticket two years ago. claiming a vacancy on account of State Senator Getzendaner having accepted o commission in the arinv, and after l>eing 1 elected was refused a seat by the Repub lican Senate. He therefore now claims that he should be vindicated by a nomi nation and election at this time, and goes before the people on that especial issue. A new feature is inaugurated by the Democratic candidate for sheriff in Ji ffer son county. Along with his formal pub lished aunouncement in the newspaper, he gave the names of the deputies he proposesto appoint in case of his election. Not a bad idea.?West Union Record. Onlv a new feature, however, so far as the meie formal announcement in the newspapers is concerned. Otherwise, for vears past, the people of Jefferson have always been informed as to who the dep uties would be long ljefore the holding of the Democratic primary for nominating a candidate for sheriff. The fixing of the time for holding the Democratic primary election 011 the reg ular date of Memorial Day in Charles Town is much to be regretted, totally inexcusable, and an act which has been severely comdemnmed by a large number of our people. As this day, held sacred among the people of Jefferson next to the Sabbath, has been appropriated to |x>litical purposes, the l.ee Memorial As sociation will,take a later date (Saturday, Juneq) for Memorial Day this year, trust ing that hereafter some one other day of the three hundred and sixty-five on the yearly calendar than the last Saturday of May may be found suitable for a primary election. In an article refering to the bust of Charles Broadway Kouss to be unveiled in New York shortly, the Winchester Star says: "The Charley Rouss. Sarah Zane and Rouss Hook and Ladder fire companies, ol this city, made substantial contribution | toward the bust fund, and the organiza tions of Charles Town, W. Va.. by con tributing fifty dollars, completed the amount necessary to be raised." Charles Town was the first of the local ities so often the recipients of Mr. Rouss's munificent liberality to make a substan tial contribution toward this fund, and 1 arning a few days ago that the sum of fifty dollars was yet needed to make up the ncccssary total amount, that too was promptly raised and forwarded to Miss Rives in New York. Hon. Samuel L. Flournoy. of Charles ton, has made public his candidacy for Governor, subject to the action of the Democratic State Convention, which1 meets in I'arkeisburg June 6. He says that he is unwilling to engage in an ac tive and heated contest for the nomina tion. but will be content with the action of the convention, trusting in its wisdom to frame a platform which will gain the ccnMencc and support of tlie people and place the State buck in the Democratic column, where she by right belongs.? Mr. Flournoy is a most estimable gentle man. well and favorably known here, would doubtless make an excellent gov ernor, and as the nominee of the Demo cratic party would receive a hearty sup jiort iu the Eastern panhandle. Confederate Reunion at Louisville. Gen. George Moorman, of New Or leans, in speaking of preparations being made at Louisville, is quoted as saying, j ?? I went to Louisville at the invitation of the reunion committee to inspect their | work and advise them. I lound them a splendid body of Confederate veterans, patriotic to the core, enthusiastic and painstaking even to the smallest details, and thoroughly imbued with the idea that they intend to make this tenth reunion the greatest of all. They arc leaving nothing undone to make our visit to Louisville pleasant, agreeable, comfort able and altogether noteworthy; and they are determined that when we leave there all shall carry to their homes noth ing but good impressions and happy memories of a visit to the 'Falls City, "The reunion hall which they have built specially as a meeting place is very large, commodious and bcautitul. and will seat fully 10.000. " Those who arc unable to pay while there will be taken care of gratis by the committee; those who are able to pay can secure board at many of the hotels and at plenty of private houses and boarding houses at from $t per day up. CONFEDERATE REUNION, Louisville, Ky? May 30 to June 3 The pupils of the Graded School cele brated their monthly Friday evening rec itations April 20th. The program was quite a long one. While all did well, the following deserve special mention: '1 Tu rnout Sechrist, Russell Elgin. Perry Barr, lames Shirley and Philip PirterReld.? The last named recited an Irisn dialogue. The following girls did well : Jeanie Strother, Francis Moore, Mollie Moore, Margaret Moore. Louise Blumeand Belle Smithson.

Cards are out for the marriage of Miss Nannie Love Bartlett. of Winchester, Va., to Mr. Charles EdwardTimberlake, of Brooklyn, N. Y. to take place Wednes day afternoon, May 2, at 5 o clock at the Braddock Street M. E. Church South, in the former city. Mr. Timberlake is a nepheh of Mr. Charles Broadway Rouss, of New. York, and holds an important position in his uncle's noted store on Broadway. Miss Bartlett is a daughter of Mrs. Fannie Griggs Bartlett and the late Josepli A. Bartlett, and is highly es teemed tor her many attractive qualities. V. Kaplon & Bro., clothiers, set the I corner-stone of their new building in i Harper's Ferry Friday cvening.a number ' of citizens being present and witnessing j the affair. It is to be of brown stone from Washington Junction. (Md.) quarry, 1 and will have inscribed on it in raised letters "V. Kaplon & Bro.'s Building, erected 1900. Enclosed in the corner stone was a box containing names of the Kaplon family, those connected in the construction of the building, town coun cil and a few others. The occasion was also celebrated by a very handsome re past at Mr. Kaplon's house, in which the workmen and citizens shared. The build ing, when completed, will be one of the handsomest in the State, and unique in that it will be set against a solid moun tain of rock, which was scoooped out for $512 OO 12 OO 12 OO Berry vill e Front Royal. ? ? its site. Rev. Dr. Smithson's Address. On Thursday night, April 20, Rev. Dr. Rumsey Smithson said in his address on temperence to a very large audience at the Court-House: I have been identified with the Anti Saloon League movement from its earli est history. It i^ intended to be, and is, non-political. The large audience as sembled here tonight indicates the grow ing moral sentiment against the saloon. The people of this county are sure to banish the saloon. Moral suasion for the drinker, and legal suasion for the saloon ist, will save our people from the curse of drunkenness. The goring ox of Exodus, 21st chapter, was selected as illustrating the high estimate we should put on human life. This law relating to the goring ox sets forth a principle which is applicable to the liquor traffic. Is the liquor business damaging ? Do the people know it? and who is responsible? The liquor business is not like any other business, the supply creates a greater demand. Drunkenness is a sin and a disease. It impairs physical health and destroys life. 100,000 die an nually from the effects of strong drink. No one has a right to give his vote to the saloon unless he is willing to give him self or his son to beccme a victim of its deadly power. You can't run the saloon without feeding it with our boys. It is a damage mentally. It excites the imagi nation. dethrones judgment, destroys sense of justice, impairs memory, and weakens the power of will. It produces insanity. Drunkenness is temporary in sanity. It is a damage to the soul. It blunts every moral sensibility? It destroys sence of honor; It kills out the fondest affections: It degrades a man beneath the brute creation. Man is the only be ing who will become intoxicated. It damages ihe family, and scatters the chil- j dren early in life. It is a damage to the community from a commercial point of view, and also from a social point of view. It produces idlers. It encourages coarseness and profanity. It is a damage to the state, by making paupers, insane people, criminals, &c. It is a damage to the church. The liquor business stands in the way more than anything else ot the millennium. Every saloon is a school of vice. Alcohol is a poison. It has affini ty for the the nerves and goes to the brain. Saloon keepers deal out to people that which is in every way harmful to man. It is against humanity's present and eter nal welfare. It is in the highest degree damaging. Do the people know it? Most certainly. Preachers, physicians, judges, lawyers, saloon keepers, keepers of our jails and almshouses know it. The cheer less home sadly tells the story. Who is responsible? The manufacturer, wliole ?sale and retail dealers, the man who rents his house to the saloon keeper, the legislature, the lawyer who assists the sa loon keeper, the man who votes in favor ot the saloon, the preacher who does not preach against it. the people who are in different to the great evil. The govern ment itself is responsible. No christian ought to vote for any man who is in favor of the saloon, llow can a christian aid and encourage that which is detri mental to the physical, moral and spirit ual welfare of our people. Oh may the people of Charles Town who favor right eousness combine their strength against the saloons and speedily rid this com munity of their damaging effects. If they would please God and do their duty they must putdown the saloon, and we helieve they will. R^i'ortek 1 or the League, CALL AND PLAN OF COUNTY PRI MA RY.

As to my new samples for the comingseason, it is hardly necessary for me to dwell on them. All I can say is that I used the very best ability and matured experience in select ing a complete as^yjtment of styles and qualities.
