J NO. M. DANIEL, Chairman, J. W. Stbideb, Secretary pro tem. West Virginia Politics. A dispatch to the Baltimore Sun from Elkins, this State, of date April 27. is as follows: ?' Ex-Senator Johnson N. Camden, of Parkersburg, is going to make a fight to carry the West Virginia Legislature, be ing desirous of succeeding Hon. Stephen B. Elkins in the United States Senate.? Mr. Camden is encouraged by the present Legislature being very close on joint bal and by the fact that the Democrats have a majority of the holdovers. Senator Elkins will be in the Republican field alone. It is generally conceded that Judge Tavenner, ot Parkersburg, will be the Democratic nominee for Governor of West Virginia. A. B. White, of Parkers burtr, w ill be the Republican nominee.? In the Second West Virginia Congres sional district for the Republican nomi notion is Representative Alston Gordon Dayton against the field, composed of Judge John Homer Holt, of Grafton; Ulysses S. Grant Pitzer, of Martiusburg. and Scott Meredith, of Fairmont." Hon. \Vm. L. Wilson Interviewed. Kansas City, Mo., April 30-?Wm. L. Wilson, author of the Wilson tariff bill, while in this city en route from Hot Springs to Nebraska City, Neb,, where he is to be the guest of J. Sterling Mor ton, his associate in Cleveland's cabinet, said: " It is to be McKinley and Bryan. Mr. Cleveland will not allow his name to be mentioned, and Dewey will not get an opportunity to see himself voted down. ?' Bryan will be nominated, but con ditions are so changed that the campaign will be on new lines. Both sides have so many new conditions to confront that the old tactics will not do. I think the Demo crats will win. We shall go into the fight solid." Mr. Wilson Denies. Washington, May 3.?William L. Wil son, who was Postmaster-General under President Cleveland, arrived here today, after an extended trip in the far West. He will remain at the capital a few days before resuming his duties at the head of the Washington and Lee U ni versity. At the Capitol,where he caUed this morning, he was given an ovation. Regarding an interview, sent out from Kansas City, in which Mr. Wilson is al leged to have said that he would support Bryan, the former Postmaster-General said he had been misreprenented. In view of the attitude of former President Cleveland on the candidacy of Mr. Bryan, the alleged statement ot Mr. Wilson that he was ready to support the-silver advo cate caused 110 little comment. Mr. Wil son said tonight: "I declined to talk politics at Kansas City, telling the man who questioned mc that I was out of politics, and, as I had spent four months in an Arizona canon, I had been removed from political currents. '? I did express the opinion that Bryan and McKinley would be the nominees, as in 1S9G, and that there would be new issues in the coming campaign, but as to how those issues would affect the result, or as to prophesying, I expressly declined to give any opinion. I did not speak of the candidacy of Admiral Dewey in the flip pant manner reported of me, but merely said that whatever his chances mighl have been had he been a candidate a year or so ago, his announcement, I thought, came too late to affect what now seemed to be the fixed current on both sides. This is the sum total of any expressions I made." Publishers Seek Relief Washington, May 3.?Representatives of the American Publishers' Association presented a memorial to the Senate Fi nance Committee today asking that some relief be afforded on account of the in creased price of paper. The delegation said the association represented 22,000 papers. No particular legislation was advocated. The delegation was received by Senator Allison, acting chairman in the absence of Senator Aldrick. The resolution reci ted that the price of printing paper used by newspapers has increased from 60 to 100 per cent, without reason or warrant to befound in the conditions of the industry, which was believed to be the working of a trust. The association appealed to Congress to inquire into the conditions complained of, to the end that suitable legislation might be provided to remedy these con ditions. As newspapers are sold at a fixed price, the resolution declares, their pub lishers cannot pat the increased cost of the paper on the consumer, and in many instances this increased cost means the confiscation of profits and in others it creates actual loss. A copy of the resolution was also pre sented by the delegation to the House Ways and Means Committee. The management of the Southern rail way has issued instructions for the im mediate construction of the extension ot its Round Hill branch from Round Hill to Snickersville.Va., the work to be com pleted and trains running through be tween Washington and Snickersville by June 15. 1900. Ex-SenatprJ N.Camden writesafriend in Glenville that he is very anxious to see West Virginia redeemed from Republican rule, and that it can be done next fall by work and organization. He adds that " I want it understood that I have no personal ax to grind as there is nothing I want, except to see the Democracy in power again and to help the boys. This has the right ring. Senator Camden is a power, aud his great influence will bt exerted for Democratic supremacy. [Glenville Stranger. Items of Interest. Mr. H. S.
