Tin Hon. 15. Boyd Faulkner, of Martinsburg, a candidate for tho nomination for Governor beforo tho Democratic State Convention, was in our city two days last weok, in tho interests of his candiducy. Ho mixed familiarly with our peoplo and mado a vory good impression upon Ihern. Mr. Faulkner is a gi-ntleman of culture and intelli gence, a profound lawyer and with considorablo experience as alogis la'or, having servect for a number "f years vory acceptably in tho Slate Senate. His slay was short, having pressing business ongngo monls that called him homo, but ho will visit us again beforo the convening of tho convention. It is announced that tho Repub lican and Greenback parties of H'??i Virgin in have formed a , coalition, and that the probable re mit will be tho defeat of the Demo crats at tho next election. The Headjustor party of Virginia, which has been in control of affairs in j hat Stato for several years past, has dropped tho name of Readjust or and assumed thatofRepublican. ?I'nmeruij Telegraph. Tho result you predict is neither probable nor possiblo. West Vir ginia will roll up her usual Demo cratic majority in Octobor next, tusion or no fusion. But we do look for the "coalition" to throw off its mask and, "assume" tho name "r "Republican" when tho Demo ncratic members of the Greenback party will leave tho rotteh old silip,and return to their first lore. Mr. Carlton Young, of Graham Rottom, is a Republican of the pn lest lypo. lie is spokon of as the Republican candiduto for ShorifT l ilt ho will not bo nominated, be cause the bosses of tho party, havo declared that Ilia candiduto must lie cithora Greoubackcr or a dis appointed Democrat, Can it bo true that tlio Republicans arc too cowardly to run a man of their o<vn party for this office? Dr.J Burboo sacms to be run ning tho Republican party in this county and compelling them to do his bidding, and ofcourso ho will not bo satisfied unless a Green backer is nominated for tho office. Ho is a sort of a Mahonc as it were, and the Republicans are afraid of <>f him, for without his assistance, there can bo no "coalition" and they know it. llcnco they must do as he says. Wo had a pleasant cull from Hon. t 'has. C. Brown, of Jackson county, Monday. Mr. Brown is a candi lath for the Democratic noinina i ion for Stiito Senator, and ho was ? lown ini Mason looking after his fences, which ho found to be in pretty good condition. Jackson county is entitled to tho Senator this time, and Mason county tho next term. So fur as wo aro able to learn the vote of this county will b'icaslinconvontlon for Mr. Brown. Mason has no deposition to dictalo tho candiduto to Jackson, and in presenting Mr. Brown, they can * ndy upon tho voto of tho Mason K'icgatea for him. Reynold* says that tho reports carrieil from hero to Clifton con cerning tlio trial of Kirby smelt strangely loud of political dumu g?guory. Tho Kentucky delogatcs at large havo a decided Arthurcomploxion, but it was duoidod that I hoy go to : Uicago uuiustructcd. As long at I he colored men wore fh (loiifo Ignorance they walked .op to the poll* and voted the Itepubii can ticket, and aiiked no other privilege.

I j The colored vbters have learned to read, and are beginning to know their strength. They see that the Republlcan.party is a selfish, cor rupt party, bent only upon secur ing the spoils of office, and are will ing to use the colored vote to ob tain power; but ulteriy unwilling j to diyirie (he honors or profits with Ihoso who contribute so largely to ; the su 2cos8 of tbe party, Ii.tolligent, ambitious young col ored men are agitating this subject,, and are demanding a Jair share of the offices at tho hands of the Re publican party. They are in earn est, and do not intend to be trifled with longsr.

Win. Pitt Kellogg, onco Gover nor and U. 8. Senator, and now Congressman from Louisiana, sent by Republican votes, was indicted in the Federal Court for the Dis trict of Columbia for having receiv ed a bribe from tho Star routo ring for his influence and vote while a United States Senator. On the trial it was clearly proven that Kellogg was paid twenty thousand dollars for getting cer tain measures through tho Senate in the interojt of the notoriously corrupt and infumous Star-route gang. Notwithstanding tho clear proof in tho case, this Republican Congressman, Kellogg, was turned . o and permitted to eroapo pun ishment upon a legal technicality. 1 lius it is that tho rascals who plunder the peoplo are allowed to escape justice by the imbecility and corruption of tho Republican administration. Tho time has como to turn the Republican party out of powor; a change is demanded by tho honest volorsoftho country and they are going to see to it, that a cliango is made this year of our Lord 1884,-A'x.

[From our lingular Correspondent.] Washington, May 10,1884. Tbero have been three great crowds on the door and in tho gal leries of tho House of Representa tives during the present session of Congress. The first assombled on the opening day to see Air. Car lisle take possession of tho Speak er's cliair; tho next on the last day of the Pit/, John I'ortor bill dobate; and Ibo third and largest came on last Tuesday, tho day on which tho fate of the Morrison Tarifl bill was decided. A large proportion of the visitors were elegantly dress ed ladies. The bright colors of their costume and hundrods of fluttering fans, rod, white and blue, gave a fine effect to tho Bcene. The question hung in doubt until the last moment, tho Tarifl revis ion men apparently having the advanluge during tho early part of tho day. Tho closing speeches wero made successively by Repre sentatives Randall, Blackburn, hasfou, and the father of Iho meas ure. While Mr. Randall read his defense from manuscript, the House was silent and attentive. His manner and voice were both indi cative of crnbaraesment. Ho said, judging from the intemperato lan guage and oxageratcd rhetoric that had so frequently marked tho de bate it would seem ns if those en gaged in industrial pursuits were robbers and outlaws. They wore, in fact, a part of the business of tho country, and woro entitled to tho protoction of the law. They wero a part of tho resources of tho nation, and to develop theso re sources was a tost of true states, manship. Mr. Blackburn spoko at length on tho olhor side faying, in conclusion, he hoped in tho near future thero would bo brought to the Hutiso enough of cnlightment of patriotism nnd of progross to ro pudiato tho bigotry that disgraced politics in the shapfl of protection. Mr. Kasson made a record against tho bill, and the Chairman of the Ways and Means committco llion made the last contribution to the great debato. When ho concluded, the galleries drew a long breath of bad air, and members rushed from all partB of tho hall to grasp Air, Morrison's hand and congratulate him on his raannnr of closing a long, brave fight. When order was restored the title of tho bill was read and there fullowcd a moments pauso of intonse suspense. Air. Converse an Ohio Democrat who hud walked down to the bar of the House, then made tho motion to strike out tho enacting clause, which was received with applause by the Republicans, and with loud hisses by tho Democrats and the occupants of the Diplomatic galle ry. Alessers Converse and Morri son being named to act as tellors, the formor took his position on tho Democratic sido, but Air. Alorrison good naturedly shoved him over to the other side telling him that was where ho bolongod. The first man to pass through in tho negative was Represcnative Reagan, of Tex as, who hud been brought in on an invalid chair in ordor to cast his vote. Ho was heartily applauded by his friends. When all tho othor names had boon called, tho Speaker said, "the clerk will call my name." It was called aud as Air. Carlisle voted "no" ho loo was loudly ap nlauded. He then said tho vote on Iho ponding bill is 150 yeas to 155 nays, ami the bill ig defeated. Cheers and hisses again resounded from every part of the Hall. Chair man Morrison yielding gracefully to the inevitable,walked, smiling to his scat, and members begun to leavo the chamber, many of them expressing the opinion that a final adjournment would be had in June. Some thought in the latter'part, others, during the first days of the j month. The Democratic friends of tin) measure say they uro by no means ca?l down by the result,and that tho fight (or revenue reform has only begun. The Springer committee decline ! to grant K.vSenat)r Kellogg's ro |quest fiir ftn investigation of his louse but propose to investigate the conduct of tho officials of the Gov ernment in his prosecution. Aftor four months tho House committee on Elections has deci ded to allow Iluprosenativu O'Fer rall to take his seat, and the scvuutb Virginia district can be ?;? ;? ..IV ,S>fA congratulated on hating a vote hereafter in the Forty-eight Con grew. Fifteen hundred doctors are now holding a convention in thin oily and talking about diseases. The American Forestry Congress is also here talking about preserving and i planting trees. The House of Rep* resentativus is discussing a new National library, and the. Senate which has talked all ngek about new ships has adjourned and will talk no more until Monday/ 8. The Cincinnati Xeuii'Journal is in the hands of a Receiver, at the instigation of John H. Putnam, who holds a judgement against the concern for 8300 for services as Columbus correspondent. There is an indebtedness of 8(30,000 to 870, 000, and the stockholders refuse to pay any more assessments. An ef fort is boing made to soil the paper at once. Plucky Phil Snyder stood to bis record and is now jenjoylng the fruit of a well earned-Victory. When West Virg(niaV!uterest8 are in the balance it is n gooa thing to have a representative in Con gress who knows how to tip the scales.?Remitter. The Boston Post launches into a big boom for Bayard. The trouble, however, is Ben Butler, and not the Pod, is the delcgnto at largo. Vcrenl of (he Morrison Bill. The notion of the Hmiso of llep resontatives on tho 5th inst., in striking out the enacting clause of the Morrison lariB bill in eflect kills tho measure and puts an end to tariff agitation during this ses sion of Congress. While, doubt less, the friends of the Morrison bill will feel some soreness over tho do feat of their pet Fcheme, the result will bo accepted as satisfactory to the great bndv of the American people. The Morrison bill profess ed to reform the tari.T but failed to accomplish a reduction of revenues, and in this partioulur at least dis appointed the expectation of friends of a genuine tarifT reform. His measure was crude in many of its cli-inils and did not evince that carcfnl study and thorough knowl edge of tho subject with which it dealt that the public exp/cted to see displayed. In view of the manifest desire of business intorsts to sco what would be tho oiled of recent changes in the tariff system beforo experimenting with new ones, the introduction of such a hill in Congress at this session was ill timed and impolitic. In addition to theso fuels, Mr. Morrison's scheme was handicapped with tho universal opinion that its tendency was to free trade, a principle) how ever correct it inay have been in theory at one day, is now regarded in the estimation of sound think ing men of all political sects and creeds a practical ab'lirdity. If tho Morrison-Curlisle faction had presented a revenue bill-fully in accord with the accepted Democrat ic position of raising revenues for the actual necessities of govern ment by a tarifl fairly adjusted so as to protect labor and deserving industries Uud not to foster monopo lies, notwithstanding an indispo sition to foster monopoli"". not withstanding an indisposition t" further meddle with the subject at this time, it is probable that it would have gone through the House by a largo vote. Whilo Mr. Ran dall will probably ha criticised by partisans for tho hold stand he made against tho measure, tho fact remains that lie has shown himself a masterly leader, a statesman with high and just conceptions of tho public need, and the innral courage lo follow his convictions at nil times and under all circumstances.

Platform of Principles, Adopted by the "America* Ftunm' Party''of il'uou Cwidy. We Jive below tho platform of the Farmers movement recently orgnuixed in this county, ltead it and learn what it schi forth. Profoundly imjifewod with the truth that the farmers of Mason rountv, West Virginia, should de finitely proclaim to the world their general object, we hereby unani mously make this declaration of principles: 1st. United by tha strong and faithful tie of agriculture, we mu tually resolve to labor for the good of our class, our country and man kind. 2d. Wn hcartilly endorse the motto: "In essentiiilBj unity; in non-cssontials, Ifberty; in all things charity.-' 3d.' ire shall endeavor to ad vance our cause by laboring to ac complish the following objects: 1st. We shall earnestly endeavor to suppress personal, local, section al and national prejudices, all un healthy rivalry, and all sefish am bition. 2d. For our business interests wo desire to bring producers and con sumers, farmers pnd manufacturers into the most direct and' friendly relations possible. 3d. That wo regard the interests of the farmer, the mechanic, the la borer, the miner and manufacturer as identical, and one cannot suf fer the effects of misrepresenta tion by the law-making bodios of our country without the other be ing all'octod proportionately. We therefore invite the hearty co-oper ation of all these classes, regard less of past party nfliliations. 4th. We hold that transportation companies of every kind are neces sary to our success', tlmt their inter ests are intimately connected with our interests, and harmonious ac tion is mutually advantageous, and that individual happiness depends upon gcnerul prosperity. 5th. Wo are no enemies to rail roads, nor of any corporations that will advance our industrial inter ests. Oth. We are opposed to such spirit and management of any cor poration or enterprise as tonds to oppress the people and rob them of their just profits We are not ene mies to capital but we oppose the tyranny of monopolies. We long to see the antagonism between cap ital and labor removed by common consent and bv an enlightened statesmanship worthy of the 10th century. We are opposed to exces sive salaries, high rates of interest and exorbitant per cent profits in trade. We desire only sclf-prolee tion and the protection of overy true interest of our land by legiti mate transactions, legitimate trade andlegitimate profits. 7th. Wo shall advance tho cause of education by all just means within our power, and here pledgo oursolves to faithfully and harmo niously labor, for all future time, to rotum, by our united efforts, to the wisdom, justice, fratornity and political purity of our forefathers. Slh. We regard tho furnishing of free passes by Railroad and other transportation companies, to mem bers of Congress, State legislatures and Judges of courts, as a specios of bribery that should be punished with severe penalties on the part of both the giver and receiver. Oth. We insist upon tho ques tion of Prohibition being sub mitted to the people at the jiolls of I this State, find regard the acts of those members who opposed and voted against tho petitions hereto fore presented to tho Legislature, as desorving tho censure of all partios who recognize the right of petition. 10th. We boliovo in an advalor^m system of taxation, and all laws making taxation unequal arc un just and oppressive and should be repealed. lltli. Wo regard the present mode of collecting taxes as entail ing unnecessary expense, together with the order- system, combined, giving a few individuals connected with the office of Sheriff opportuni ties for speculating at the exponso of the taxpayers, while with a County Treasury much might be saved annually. Tho smallest tax payer, as well as the largest in tho county, feds tho evil of constantly increasing taxes, and earnestly de mand reform in expenditures. 12th, Last hut not least,wo insist upon first principles] That tho ollice should seek flic man and not the man the office, and tho custom of politicians canvassing for nomi nations will bo rebuked at the polls, and the candidate who will not endorse all tho foregoing prin ciples neod notexpec^the support of tho American Farmers' Party.
