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
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

Charles Broadway Kouss to be unveiled
in New York shortly, the Winchester
"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.

V. Kaplon & Bro., clothiers, set the

' of citizens being present and witnessing
j the affair. It is to be of brown stone
from Washington Junction. (Md.) quarry,

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

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
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

CUSTOM GARMENT flAKINO.
I wish to inform my friends and the
public generally that I have moved in the
new room now being fitted up for me in
the Hagley building (a few doors from
Racket store) about April ist. I antici
pate a very large spring trade, and will
use my best efforts to raise and maintain
the standard of custom garment making
to the highest level possible, in order to
counteract the many spurious imitations
of legitimate tailoring that have been
foisted upon the public. 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. I promise you also in the fu
ture, as in the past, the same courteous
and liberal treatment, and last, but not
least, a perfect fit. Yours* &c.,
