North Carolina went Democratic last Friday by 57,000 majority. "The Shenandoah Valley" is an in teresting and beautifully illustrated pamphlet issued by the N & W Railway, for a copy of which we return thanks to General Passenger Agent W B, Bevill. Mr Harry E Swan, of Gen Wood's headquarters, has our thanks tor several late copies of the Havana Post, a spright ly Cuban daily. With the exception of several advertisements the paper is print ed in English. ' The Clarksburg Telegram, the leading Republican paper in the central part of the State, repudiates the nomination of Brannon in a long and strong editorial in which it virtually declares in favor of Judge Bennett. Attention is called lo the meeting of the Bryan and Stevenson Democratic Club at the Court-House next Friday night. Bnsiness matters of importance will come up. and all Democrats are re quested to be present. A dispatch from General MacArthur, Saturday, says that First Lieut. Alstael tet, Corps of Engineers, U S Army, with escort of fifteen men, was attacked Aug 1 by Philippinos, and the entire party either killed, wounded or captured. Mr Arthur Bates, of this vicinity, is reported among the captured. Col. Clarence L. Smith, senior editor of the Fairmont Index, makes a positive announcement that the name of Hon. O. S. McKinney, juntor editor of that paper, will not be before the Democratic Con gressional Convention for nomination, the people of Marion county desiring his return to the State Legislature. Policemen Morris and Mock have been giving several gangs of gamblers some pretty lively times recently. The police jurisdiction of the town covers an area in cluding all territory within a mile of the corporate limits, and the officers propose to make it hot for those found violating the law in this regard about the Charles street bridge, up and down Evitt's run and elsewhere. The last patient has been discharged trom "Camp Washington," and the smallpox, as far as Charles Town is con cerned, we trust is now a thing entirely of the past. This favorable condition at so early a date, without more serious re sults, is especially due to Mayor Washing ton, the Board of Health and our corpo rate authorities, backed by our County Court, to all of whom much credit is due. At the meeting of the Town Council last night. Corporation Attorney J F En gle gave an able and elaborate opinion showing conclusively that the Council had the undoubted power to make a levy sufficient to cover the extraordinary ex penses incurred by the late smallpox visi tation as well as the regular expenses for thecurrcnt year: whereupon the levy for iqoo v-as laid at So cents on each $100 of real or personal property, with capitation tax at 4 2. A few days ago we asked our friend Sing Kee. the geniel Chinese landryman iu Charles Town, who and what the "Box er?" were, when he replied: "Like-a South, like-a-New Ticket; turn-em-out." We do not infer from this that our " New Ticket" friends in Jefferson are anything like the "Boxers," but the reply was evidently the best illustration our celestial to A-nsman could give of those whom he .wished to show in his own country were in opposition to the party in power. In conversation several days ago with Col. R. P. Chew, of the State Board of Equalization, that gentleman called our attention to the fact that ot all the im mense products of coal and oil iu West Virginia, the amount of revenue to the State from this source is almost abso lutely nothing. Thess articles are taxed as i>ersonal property, and only such little amounts as happen to be on hand on the 1st of April of each year are taxed. The output in these products in West Virginia is immense, and that on hand one day, which may be made a very reduced quan tity if so desired, is but a small propor tion of what is annnally developed of the latent-wealth of the State, and which sV ould in all justice bear its proportionate In.rden of taxation, along with the prop erty of the farmer, the merchant and the manufacturer. A permanent State Board of Equalization might be of great benefit if charged with the duty of looking after nrtttters of this character and framing and recomiriending laws to meet the re tju.runints of such cases. mitted in the Western Union Telegraph and Winchester Telephone office in this pUce on Thursday night last. The office is in the north end of the Law Library Building, iust in rear of the court-house, and within a block of the business centre of the town. Mr. J. W. Kyle, the chief operator, had left the office in charge of little Willie Smith; a bright little lad of about fourteen years of age, and Willie says that at a quarterof ten,- when he had just taken off a telegram and had begun to write a letter at Sie table, a sack or cloth was thrown over his face, and a piece of telephone cord Hooked around his neck, and at about the same time fie felt a stinging blow back of the head.? This was all he knew until ten minutes after ten, when he recovered conscious ness sufficient to telephone for Dr. Wm. Neill, who immediately came and sum moned others to his relief. His pocket book was fonnd in the rear room, where the robber or robbers bad found ingress and egress, minus seven dollars and some cents which had been stolen therefrom. Salvation Army in Charles Town. A large corps,of the Salvation Army is to enter CharleV Town to-day, for the purpose ot beginning aseries of meetings here. The corps consists of Adjutant J. Kemp and adozen others, including three ladies?Miss Terrell and three Jones sif ters. They will pitch a tent on the north side of the B. & O. R. R.,^nd hold theii meetings there. A clipping from the Piedmont Herald sent us says : ' 'Those who have read of the work of the Salvation Army in the slums of our greai cities and know of the good they have ac complished, not only in a religious sense, but in procuring work tor the unemployed and in various other ways, will not bi surprised at the gentlemanly appearance and musical talent displayed by the banc now in our midst, under the command ol Adjutant Kemp. That gentleman con ducted services in the Presbyterian churcl last Sunday morning and in St. 'Johif'! M. E. church, South^fnght, a verj large congregation being in attendance Monday night the entire band, 13 in num ber. assisted in the entertainment givef for the benefit of the India famine fund On Tuesday they pitched a large tent it the Orchard, where they have been hold ing services every night since, which hav< been well attended." -3 m 9 -m It is said that Mr. Horace C. 6sbourn of this place, will getfrom6o.ooo to7o,oo< bushels of peaches from his orchards or the mountain near Harper.s Kerry and that Mr. N. S. J. Strider's orchard at Uvilla will yield about_i,5oo bushels. There will be an excursion over the B. & O. R. R. to Island Park Wednesday, August S, under the auspices of tht Friendship Fire Co., of Winchester, Train will pass Charles Town, gojng, at 8:45 a. m. Returning ticket will be good only on special train" leaving Harper's Ferry at 6:30 p. m. same day. Round trip tare from Summit Point, 45 cts, ; Charles Town, 25 cts. ; Halltown, 20 cts. White working on the additional track now being laid by the B. & O. Railroad between Shenandoah Junction and En gle's in this county, William Handright, of Kearneysville, was struck by engine 472. a yard engine at Shenandoah June tion, which came upon the opposite track, striking him in the back, hurling him in to the air and landing him between tht tracks. His collar bone was broken and his face badly cut and other parts of his body bruised. ? The. London Times ot Wednesday prints a dispatch from Dr. G. E. Morri son, its Pekin correspondent, dated July 2i, in which he enumerates fifty-one for eigners killed by the Chinese there, and says: "The wounded number 138, in cluding Captain Halliday, severely; the American surgeon. Dr. Lippitt, severely, and Captain Meyers, all of whom art doing well." Dr. Lippitt, as is known, is a son of Dr. C. E. Lippitt. of Clarke, and a nephew of Dr. W. P. Lippitt, of this place, and there has been much concern about his welfare here. Our good friend W H Martin, ol Waynesvilie,Ill.,(who. it grieves lis to say still remains politically unconverted from tile error of his ways,-)?in renewing his subscription 10 the Spirit of Jefferson writes: "This finds myself and family in the best of health ; also we are having the best of crops so far this year in this coun try. Oats are making 50 to 70 bushels to the acre, wheat 20 to 25, hay crop fir, good crop of berries and fair crop of ap^ pies, with labor for all who want to work, at good wages. Hoping that you are getting ready to get in the Republican band wagon at once, I am "Conditions in West Virginia." says Hon. John T. McGraw, "are vastly im proved over those of- four years agor and the indications point strongly to Demo cratic victory. In 1896 such Democratic leaders as ex-Senator Camden and ex Governor Fleming supported Palmer and Buckner, and aside from their personal efforts the moral influence of their refusal to support the regular Democratic nomi nees had a powerful weight throughout the State. This year these leaders are for the ticket and the party is united and harmonious. The only method by which the Republicans can carry the State is by-the importation of negroes, and every precation will be taken to pre vent this being done " 1 Two yoi>ng ladies of Washington City Misses Mary Powell and Fannie Ball summer visitors at Harper's Ferry cn Fnday evening last hired a fine pair of horses and new turnout of Mr E S Cum mings and drove to Charles Town. Re turning to Harper's. Ferry they drove out near the bluff adjacent to the Hill-Top House, when by some means the horses became frightened, the young ladies were thrown or jumped from the buggy, and were slightly injured, aud the horses be came detached from the vehicle and went over the cliff and were killed. The horses were valued by Mr Cummings at $500, and we understand he will enter suit fqj the recovery of that amount, claiming that the accident was the result of the horses being struck by a whip in the hands of one of the ladies. Yours respecfully. '* W H Martin. In Favor of < At a special term of the cuit Court held here by Judge E. Boyd Faulkner last Tuesday, the most important case decided was that of Mr. D. C. Lee, of Clarksburg. W. Va., against Cruger W.Smith, a prominent oil operator of this place. The case grows out of a controversy over mineral rights in a certain tract ot land in Harrison county which was purchased by Smith of Lee several years ago. Mr. Lee first brought suit in 1895 in the Circuit Court of Harri son County, alleging that when be sold the tract of land to Mr. Smith he did not know the value/>f the minerals lying un der the surfacS? but tjiat he thought that Smith wa^ familiar with them and pur chased the land chiefly on that account. The case was decided against Lee in the Harrison County Circuit Court. Since thatdecision several oil wells have been sunk' on the land by the Standard Oil Company, which are now producing thousand of barrels of oil, and Mr. Lee, feeling aggrieved at the small considera tion for which he sold the land, instituted suit in February in this court, alleging substantially the same grounds for re covery as in the other case. The defen dant filed a plea of readjudicata and ex hibited with it the record in the Harrison county case. Judge. Faulkner sus tained the plea and dismissed the plain tiffs bill. Mr. Lee announce that he would take the case to the Supreme Court of the United States, and was given a suspending order for 60 days upon giving bond. The suit involves a large amount, as the supply of oil underlying the land | increases with every well sunk and Mr. Lee contends that he should have a share of the profits. Mr. Smith is becoming rapidly rich. ^ ^ ^ ? Cburch Items. Rev Dr. C. N. Campbell preached at Halltown Sunday afternoon. Rev. L. R. Milboume will preach at Halltown next Sunday afternoon. Rev. L. R.

Any persons desiring to tent or take board on the ground should write at once to the pastor. Rev. F. A. Strother, Summit Point, W. Va. We regret to say that while the N. & W. R'y will sell excursion tickets to the meeting from Luray and intermediate stations to the camp ground, it will not sell them from points north of-the camp ground ; but the cost trom Charles Town out is a mere trifle, k ? Editor Clifford, in his colored organ, the Pioneer Press, says: " On the front page of this issue we publish an opinion of "The Colored Race" by a correspondent of the Spirit of Jef ferson, of Charles Town. Itabouncjs in kind words in reference to our race, and verifies what we have always said; i. e., that Jefferson county is kinder toNegroes | than any other county in West Virginia. The officers of said" county have done everything they could to stamp out the small pox, and make easy the suffering of the victims, and for efficacy of service, the few cases now in the hospital, show that their efforts were unerring. Mayor Washington, and Dr. Billings, of the Ma rine Hospital, and the citizens of Jefferson county, should be honored and revered by not only every Negro in Charles Town, but by those of West Virginia. Many things were done to make the Negroes feel at ease, but the most magnanimous one was the closing of all the white chnrches because the Negro churches I had to be closed. ?j Cot G.' . that was burst a bornin.' Colonel Blacl knew nothing about it Thursday, and furthermore Mr. 'OHy i^ moving abojjt as usual minus a straw stack for a head gear?unless the straw hat he sometimes wears be ca'led a "straw stack." The above is from the esteemed Spirit of Jefferson at Charles Town, and the -Winchester paper referred to was the Evening Star. Mysteries are mysteries until they are cleared up. At the tune the publication was made Mr. Otty was missing and -the fact that he has sub-' sequently turned up is no ground for branding an article as sensational-. The further fact that Colonel Black didn't know what was going oil upon one of his farms is a mere indication that that gen tleman makes only a superficial overseer and should watch his interest closer. In digging Mr. Otty out from under that straw rick The Star welcomes him back to life and can say to him that he owes his life to the Spirit of^efferson, as he was to all intents and purpojteS dead so far as this newspaper was concerned. There was something pathetic in the thought that Mr. Otty. overcome by the hot weather, had crawled into a straw rick and as be lay down to rest had been covered up by the straw from the patent self-stacker. It was a majestic and awe inspiring reflection to thinkof the colossal and unique monument erected over Mr. Otty's last resting place and that lie would be safe from the prying eyes df the world, at least until spring when Colonel Black would take what was left ot the hugh straw-rick to scatter over his fields. But by the premature raking out of the straw rick of poor Mr. Otty before his time was ripe, the Spirit of Jefferson has Bpoiied a pretty story, an enchanting romance and an impenetrable mystery. Mr. Ottf is with us once -again, but the romance editor of The Stir has been fired.?Winchester Star. Sioo Reward Jioo.
