SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON.
CHABiiK Town, Jefferson Count r, W. Va. / - == TUESDAY MORNING, NOYEMBKR13,1800. G eo. W. Haines, - Editor and Proprietor. $1.50 In Adrance; %2 If not Paid ip Advance. "1 o new cash in advance subscribers we will send the Spirit of Jefferson from now until after the Presidential election for 25 cts. or from now until January i, 1902, for $1.50. Congress will be largely Republican in both branches. TheDemocratic party has met a reverse, but has not surrendered. It's a pity the Berkeley Democrat hasn't heard the election news from Jefferson. The more Republican boodle in Jeffer son, the larger the Democratic majority. Mr. F. V. Aler has a new baby girl.? Martinsburg Stateman. Hope he is doing well. Standard Oil certificates advanced from 655 on Friday to 700 on Saturday. More McKinley prosperity! Senator Elkins estimates the West Vir ginia Legislature at twenty Republican majority on joint ballot. We have a sick rooster, but will not bring him forth. His unwellness is of too decided a character. Saturday's Wheeling Register estimates the Republican majority on joint ballot in the Legislature at 23. Bryan's plurality over McKinley in Jefferson in 1896 was 1173. In 1900 it is 1522?a Democratic gain of 349. ?' The economics of Hamilton ? ? * are growing into the greatness of our Union."?George Alfred Townsend. The Shepherdstown Register has en tered upon its thirty-seventh volume. It is an excellent paper, and we wish it much continued success. The first fruits of President McKinley's re-election is the advance in the price of beef by the Chicago Beef Trust. ' * Trusts are a good thing," you know. Gen. James A. Walker. Republican, has been defeated for Congress in the ninth Virginia district, by Judge W. F. Rhea, Democrat, by about 2,000. The indications are that McKinley has carried 27 States and Bryan 17. McKin ley's plurality of. the electoral vote is a bout 121, and of popular vote about 775. 000. The great meteoric shower expected list November, and which failed to put in an appearance, is looked for by many astronomers to-night, between midnight and dawn. As an ardent supporter of Gen. Watts quotted of a brother of Judge Bennett at t ie great State Convention at Wheeling in 1896, -'This is not Democratic year in West Virginia." Col. J. Garland Hurst, Democratic nominee tor State Treasurer, received in Jefferson county 2S34 votes?62 more than any other candidate. J. D. Billmyer comes next, with 2772 votes. The Baltimore Sun made a grand fi^ht for Democratic success, and deserves much credit therefor. Tha Sun is the paper of the people in this latitude, and lias and deserves a large measure of prosperity. The Waynesbro (Va.,) Valley Herald has changed its name to that of Valley Virginian. It has heretofore been a very interesting, enterprising paper. That it will so continue we have no doubt. Suc cess to you. Brother Cooke. Official returns* eceived at Morgantown Saturday from the Lewis-Webster dele gate district show W. W. Brannon and LewisC. Williams, both Democrats, have been elected to the Legislature, instead of. as was supposed, two Republicans. A dispatch from Piedmont says: "Col. Thomas B. Davis takes his defeat for Congress good-naturedly, and is again busy looking after his large railroad, coal, buuking and real estate interests. Col onel 1 )avis ran ahead of his ticket in many parts of the district." West Virginia steel workers, at Wheel ing. many of whom confided in ante election promises and voted to continui the Republican party in power, are now served with notice that their rate of pay will be reduced from 26 to 61 per cent.? At the same time the price of steel has been advanced $2 per ton. Mr. P. II. Hughes, Manager Postal Telegraph Cable Company, Savannah, Ga.. has favored us with a copy of an in teresting special edition of the Savannah Morning News, giving pen pictures ot the envirnonments and attractions ol that great Southern seaport, with its growing wealth and importance. The toilowing from the Harpers Ferry Sentinel, in face of the well-known fact that this countv was literally flooded with Republican boodle and that the Demo cratic party was as poor as a church mouse, is enough to make even a sick dog laugh: ?? When we take into consideration the amount of money distributed by the 1> mocrnts in the county 011 the eye of the elcct on, the Republicans of Jefferson ate t . be congratulated for the gallant and honorable battle they have waged for their party, which has so grandly and nobly triumphed in the general election." Gewhillikins! On Thursday evening last Washington Hall was well filled with an audience re presentative of Charles Town culture to hear the Hon. Geo. R. Wendling deliver one of his noted lecture, " Saul of Tarsus." Mr. Wendling is a master of the lecture platform, and 011 this occasion seemed to have been at his best. The lecture itself contained all the attractive elements one could ask. It was preeminently scholar ly. intellectual,, spiritual and eloquent. Kvtry one must have felt proud that Ciiarlet Town could claim such a man among her citizens. The lecture was a gift from Mr. Wendling to the St. An drew's Guild ot Ztm Episcopal Church, the proceeds of which goc^ to a fund for the cuountain mission knairn as St. An drew's Chajel. 1522 DEMOCRATIC MAJORITY. The Legislature Conceeded. Charleston. W. Va., November 3.? The election news received here to-day from the doubtlul counties has been very meagre. Nicholascounty has gone Dem ocratic. electing John D. Alderson to the house of delegates. Raleigh, Lincoln, Mercer and Putnam are certainly Re publican. Fayette is still claimed with confidence by the Democrats on the county ticket, including the two members of the house of delegates. The ninth sen atorial district is still in doubt, and it will require the official count to determine who is elected, but it is confidently be lieved that Lou Stephenson, the Demo cratic candidate, is elected. Chairman Millerclosed the Democratic headquarters to-day and left this evening for his home in Hinton, practically con ceding the Legislature in both branches to the Republicans. Miss Gertie Haines Married. Miss Gertrude, daughter of Mrs. Mary A. Haines, of this city, who has been vis iting her sisters, Mrs. Wm. Baker and Mrs. Mattie Collins, in Kansas City, Mo., was married last Wednesday to Mr. Bos well Coles, ot Chariton, Iowa. Miss Haines was very popular among a large circle of friends while she lived in this city, all of whom will be pleased to tender her congratulations.?Winchester Star. C omniunicated. November 9. 1900. Mr. Editor:?Let ine intrude upon your columns in giving my experience of a trip from Trappe, Loudoun county, Va., to Charles Town, Jefferson county, W. Va. On Sunday evening, the 4th, I start ed from my place near Trappe, in my buggy, by the way of Bluemont to Wil son's Gap. There I put up for the night with A. Johnson, a staunch Republican, and had to agree to disagree with him on some points. On Monday morning I began my journey til rough Wilson's Gap, passing the Old Furnace wall, probably fifty years old or more. Thence by the Shenandoah to Shannondale Springs, where the towering rocks hang majes tically overhead and obscure the sun's rays for two-thirds of the day. Atter crossing the river I found the corn and grass much better than about drouth stricken Trappe. The weather being superb, I wended my way to the res idence of my friend Geo. W. Marlow. After refreshing the inner man, my friend came home and supper being over he in vited me to take a buggy ride to a moun tain school-house, where several speakers discussed the issues of the campaign. Returning home I spent the night with him, and found he had a perfect mania for politics. Wasliospitably treated, and next morning after breakfast bid them good-bye and drove to the home of my brother, A. D. Miley, in Charles Town. After visiting H. T. Miley,and B. E. Beavers, I returned home, having enjoy ed a delightful trip. C. G. Miley. Help... Nature I Babies and children need I proper food, rarely ever medi ? cine.

SODA will generally correct this difficulty. If you will put from one fourth to half a teaspoonful in baby's bottle three or four times a day you will soon see a marked improvement. For larger children, from half to a teaspoonful, according to age, dissolved in their milk, if you so desire, will very soon show its great nourish' ing power.

Messrs Editors . _?o natural!* <1? we of the old Stonewall Brigade tutu to the Shenandoah Valley for the dissemination of our lien* and notices that ?? gi?e you this letter concerning our aflairs daring the late Va. State Camp Reunion, held Oct. 10th, Uth, and 12ih, in Staunton, trusting you will kindly permit your far reaching column* to make known for in, to our absent comrade*, the pro ceedings of our business meetings on that occasion. The grand Slate Camp meeting ??? ? great aud magnificent affair. at which """ 'f?n?acted important matter*, history making, and of vast inUrest and import to all loyal men of the L-wt Cause. The eloquent aud masterly speeches of the distinguished orators. Senator John W Daniel and State's Attorney Montague! would alone amply have compensated for our Visit to Slaunton had their been no other attractions, but there were other and great attractions, in all quarters, and m all ways, making the occasion, from start to finish, of greatest interest and im portance. Staunton acquitted herself no bly well, and the vast throng of visitors doing so likewise, the unity of action made the whole affair highly commenda ble and of mutual benefit, in behalf of Confederate history and human good. But it is the purpose of tbi* writing al most exclusively to confine its narration to matters relating to the old Stonewall Brigade meeting*. Our first session, on 11th lost., in the auditorium of the big hall wan encroached upon by the Cavalry Reunion, and we adjourned to meet on the 12th, in one of the rooms of the court house which meeting promptly occurred, Col. J. H. Williams presiding, and there being a large attendance of the enthusi astic old Stonewaller*. The business transacted was nlmost entirely confined to the one matter of adopting a Badge to distinguish or designate the members of that renowned Old |.t Virginia Brigade whose glorious valor in that first great battle of the war between the Stales at Manassas obtained for it tl.e immortal name of the Stonewall Brigade. Only two sketches or 'designs of barters were presented for examination and adop tion. Prof. Jn8. M. Qarnett, of tl.e old Brigade, presented one of these ; a trian gular design, pendant from a bar, on which was a background of a stone wall yith appropriate inscriptions, one of these being m a prominent semi.circle hearing Get. Bee's exclamation, "There stands Jackson like a alone wall." O A Foner den, also of the old Brigade, presented he other design, consisting of two paral lel circles, divided into five spaces by five ?lar points, with an inner circle bearing ? fine likeness ol Gen Jackson on ? fi,o?e wall background. Each *!?r point is numbered for one of the five regiments, h 5!h' 27">- nni1 33 ', composing ie Brigade. In the semi circle spaces are the words and letters, Stonewall Bri gade; C. 8. A ; II. A (Rockbridge A nil lery,, and C. B. (Carpenter's Battery) ? Hi is badge was selected for adoption hv ?> committee of seven, \V. \V. B Oallaher 2J Rett., Charles Town, W. Vs.; Judge J. H.

Fonerden with authority to proceed with the exe cution of the work. This matter having this important con clusion, we now want all whom it may concern to take notice that this Badge of Honor will be coprriKhted or otherwise so legally protected that any person not e ililJfjd to it, who shall be found wearing or possessing it, will be liable to prosecu tion. Let every member of ih<? Stonewall Brigade, who' was in good Ktandiug in hirt regiment and company during the war and at i'? clone, wt mijcc report his name, in full, with present P.

The discussion which aro?-e at Loui* ville, Kv., a-* to whether the Artillery could have official membership with the old Brignde, wan nettled at this grand fcjtate Camp in full recognition of their title to membership. On motion of Hon. Win. M.
