MlkM Krerj TuWaj ?or?L*, by OHO. W. TIPPETI, - Editor. PRICE?tl.OO A YEAR, IX ADVANCE. POIHT PLEA8AHT. WEST VIRGINIA MAY 16, 1893. DEMOCRATIC TICKET. For County Superintendent of Schools, TIIOS. T. FISHKR. The Republican papers desiro to create the impression that the ap pointment of Gen. C. C. Watts, of Charleston, to be U. S. District At torney for West Virginia, does not meet with the approval of the De mocracy of this State. In this they are greatly mistaken. The appoint ment meets with universal satisfac tion amongst the Democracy, but it is the reverse with the Republicans, and they may have causc to coir plain, because bz- darta, when Dis trict Attorney, to prosecute Repub licans who bad been guilty of vio lating the election law, and for this reason he was removed by Harrison while he was engaged in prosecuting Republicans who had been guilty of perpetrating frauds upon the ballot box. You can put the Re publican editors against the world as liars. Mrs. Annie B. Kenna, widow of the late Senator John E. Kenna, has been appointed by the President postmistress at Charleston. She had the support of the solid delega tion from this State, after Capt. Sam Matbeson gallantly withdrew from the contest for the office when ho fonnd Mrs. Kenna was an applicant. He is one of the best and most ac tive Democrats in Kanawha county, and for this act in withdrawing bis name and giving Mrs. Kenna a clcar field for the postoffice, and for bis many and valuable services to the Democratic party, the Democrats should see to it that he is well pro vided for under this administration. He is capable and deserves the best the party has at its disposal. The civil service law is just now receiving the denunciation of Re publicans as well as Democrats. The papers of the country cannot speak out too strongly against it as it is a fraud and un-American, and we believe in abolising the whole farce. It was brought over here from England, and "is English you know," and we say let it be sent back there. It may work all right nnder that form of government, but not here with our free and patriotic way of saving the country and dividing it among the victors. Mr. Robinson, the Commissioner of Agriculture of North Carolina, told the Southern Governors at Richmond of an experiment his State is making. A county is per mitted to withdraw its convicts from the penitentiary and put them at work on the county roads. This has been done, notably in Mccklen burgh county, and four miles out of ^Charlotte, in all directions, the roads have been reconstructed by convict labor. So well pleased is the coun ty with the result that the work is to be continued. Other counties are adopting the plan. Just as fast as the road construction reaches a farm, that farm immediately appre ciates in value. The effect is so marked that there is developing a very strong sentiment in favor of this ^disposition of convict labor. Commissioner Robinson believes it will spread until the whole convict force of North Carolina is engaged in building county roads. Governor McKinley says "the Republican party requires no apology." No; what it needs is condemnation, and this is what the people have given it. For that reason the attempt to make John Sherman's financial*ideas popular in this country is calculated to excite both surprise and indignation. Wall Street came very near hav ing a regular financial crisis during the past week. The big money brokers there were trying to corner the Government and got squeezed themselves, some of them to the wall. That little jolification of the g. o. p. at Louisville was a most ghastly attempt at rattling dry bones with the hope of revivifying them. But the bones will not articulate, "hence these tears." Lots of men who have been any thing but successful in the manage ment of their own finances, arc com ing to the front with schemes show ing just how the national finances ought to be managed. The g. o. p. may pull itself to gether in time to make the cam paign of '9G just a little bit interest ing. It's . prediction department, which was laid up for repairs last November, is again actively at work. A Band of Aborigines Attracts Great Attention By Parading About the Grounds and Buildings. Slonx, Ogallr.lu and Brutes Represented Bands Play Strictly Incognito?No Mora Exhibit! or Supplies to Be Taken Is Durlnc the Day?The Flnt of the Serlef of Congresses. , Chicago, May 15. ? Administration building was invaded Monday by a band of aboriginal Americans whose ancestors first saw Christopher Colum bus and his caravels on the shores ol the New World. The visitors form a sort of Buffalo iiill's wild west aggrega tion, and their appearance at once at tracted everybody in sight. Every brave and squaw was gorgeously deco rated with embroidered blankets, bead ed moccasins, headdress of feathers, stuffed skins of animals and snakes, and' tlieif faoes were painted to a hideous decree. In their hands were toma hawks. pipes of peace, stone weapons and other articles which -iiev use on their native heath They wer~ ^1 full blooded Sioux, OgalL?and Brnles. Sightseers tried ask them their names, but -Poor Lo" knew no English and could only grunt **Ugh and occasionally their stolid fea tures would relax in imitation of a smile. They Wanted to bo introduced to President Palmer or Higinbotham, but the former official is at home in De troit and the head of the local directory had not arrived. So after a ride in the elevators and a view of the fair from the dome of the administration building,the Indians marched in single file to Major Handy's department. The chief of publicity and promotion was not in, but his assistant, Major Barber, who is an admirer of good In dians, received them, showed them a young woman operating a typewriter, gave each a message of welcome from the machine, and when it was inter preted each Sioux said "Ugh" and grinned his satisfaction. The clerical force was taken by surprise at the sud den entrance of such a warlike band of Indians, and a .feeling stole over them that their, scalps might be in danger The women kept as far away from the warriors scalping knives as they could, and a few of them made a rather hasty exit, returning a moment later, how ever, to take a peep at the redmen | from a half open door. j ISnmln Play Incognito. All the bands that play about the fair grounds wear uniforms designed by the fair directory, but tliey do not bear names. They operate strictly incognito. Ask one of them what organization lie belongs to and he scrowls, but deigns not to reply. Sousa's aggregation and the musicd Sandwich Islanders have ? ye?'ast tljeir spell about the visi tors. They belong among the snperb ! attractions that are not yet "installed " At present the melody is supplied prin cipally by union musicians of Chicago hired by the day. Only Thomas and I . ousa are said to possess contracts. The former is busy about one-fourth of the time wielding his baton in music hall ami the rest of the time fighting his ap parently losing battle with the federal commission. Of coarse, he has nothing to do with the engagements of "popu lar music" organizations. But it is not intended to imply that the popular mu sic now supplied is of inferior quality. On the contrary, it is listened to with manifest delight by thousands of cul turea people, both in the administration building and about the pavilions on the grounds. A? to Future Kxliibit?. Saturday, at midnight, President Hig inbotlians recent order to exhibitors and concessionaries went into effect. It provided tnat after May 13. neither goods for exhibition nor supplies for daily consumption would be permitted to be brought into the grounds in the day time, and that if exhibits were brought in at night after that date their introduction "would be attended by I greatly increased expense." This means that the directory is taking measures to have the fair declared finished in the near future, and that they propose to shut off the laggards and get along without their exhibits rather than to rest longer under the allegation that the fair is not done, and that it will not be before closing time comes. lot* of 11ml Kn,| Dirt. The foreigners, especially in the liberal arte building, are waiting for the dust and dirt to be removed from the incom plete section before they will expose their costly works of art and sotne ex hibitors have removed their goods from the cases and berths temporarily be cause of the dust and dirt which accu mulates. W orld's U omen's Cutler*-*,. Over 12 mouths of infinite labor, involving correspondence with ev ery portion of the civilized globe culminated Monday in one of the most truly representative and brilliant gath erings of women that has ever assem bled. The scene was the hall of Colum bus ill the new art institute on the lake front, now occupied for the first time and the event, the open!ng of the world's women s congress, the first of the series of world s fair congresses that will con stantly succeed each other week after week until the end of October. n I'T They Worked Slow. The reason for the snail-like passage made by the carpenters and staff-work ers on the big bandstand at the north end of the administration plaza has been made apparent. The men have been working for several weeks on promises of getting their pay from the contractors. The Weather Responsible. It is the unsettled I ackward state of the weatner which is keening thousands of people from seeing the fair rather than the impression that the visitors will find it in an incomplete state. Closed Sunday. No visitors were admitted to the grounds Sunday: even the press repre sentatives were excluded. The side shows and the attractions on the Mid way Plaisance reaped a rich harvest. Inside the grounds 4,000 men were at work upon the roadways and buildings. It'll Ke a Success Xovc? Nf.w York, May 15.?Ward McAl lister has at last a good word for the world's fair. He says: "There is no question but the exhibition is in perfect taste." TWENTY-FIVE DROWNED. Vessels Collide Off Cornwall?One Sunk. Foreign New*. London*, May 15.?The steamship City Of Hamburg, which arrived at Swansea tunday from Hamburg, reports a colli sion with the ship Counte3s Eveline of Trevose Head. Cornwall, in which the latter was sunk with 10 of her crew and cine passengers. Tho captain and the first mate managed to climb aboard the City of Hamburg before their boat rank, and were the only persons on the ill fated ship saved. A. dense fog pre \ ailed at the time. The steamship was only slightly injured. I Enjfllsh Liberals Discouraged. London, May 15.?The past week has brought only discouragement to the English Liberals. The records of the house of commons, sitting in commit tee, on home rule, show a monotonous waste of obstructive motions and insig- i mficant divisions. So far Mr. Glad ?tonei has been heavily handicapped in his efforts to defeat the obstructionists by the admitted incapacity of the chair man. Conservatives, speaking through the Drovinces. are denouncing Glad .? stone s policy ana lis advocates nun unusual rancor. Professor Tyndall, Gladstone's historic enemy, is equaling with his pen what the Tory politicians are doing with their tongues. In an open letter he denounces Mr. Morley as an English Robespierre, and calls Mr. Gladstone a traitor to his country. I? France Prrparlng For WarT . Berlin, May 15.?The Wolff news agency asserts on semi-official authority that the reinforcement of the French troops stationed on the eastern frontier of France is proceeding with method and regularity. The French govern ment according to the same authority, is likewise extending and strengthening , the military lines adjoining the German frontier and planning with a view to ' prompt and effective concentration, t The barracks at the entranclied camp at Verdun have been greatly enlarged and at Epinalt two new barracks have been built aud an addition made to the ! garrison. | On the same semi-official authority it is stated that, men are at work night aud day laying double lines of rails on the line of the Paris and Nancy railway : between Blesme and Kevigny, in order to hasten the mobilation of the French troops. The Frankfort Zeituncr, commenting upon the foregoing statement and on other semi-official news dispatches of a ? similar character, states that reports j J>f the kind are obviously intended to : Influence the electors in the comini; elections for the reichstag in favor of candidates who support the army bill. Hospital For Consumptives. ^ ienna, May 15.?A society has been organized here for the erection of a hos pital for consumptives, under the lnatronage of Archduchess Maria.

The Governor of Colorado Explain* How It Occurred. Denver, May 15.?Governor Waite has transmitted a communication rela tive to the recent Indian tronbles in which he recites in very plain language the causes that have led to the out breaks, anil directjy charges the Indian agents with negligence and incompe tency. He says: -From the best in formation I can get the outbreak in New Mexico was the result of abuse and insults by drunken and renegade Indians. The periodical troubles in Colorado result from the fact that the Indians are allowed by the United States Indian agents to wanJer away from the reservations. There are two causes winch induce the Indian agents to lot p ana leave their reservations* ?' 'First?The rations go right along. Practically it costs the United States just as much to support the Indians when away from the reservation as when at home and the real but not ap parent difference is pocketed by the thrifty Indian agent. . " -Second?Indians take this vacation m an annual liuut and contrary to their customs before they were restricted to reservations: they destroy all game in e?Vurslous. killing it for the hides. 1 hey usually sell these hides to the same thrifty Indian agent, who gives them a written permit to leave the reservation.' " The governor closes by appealing to w Pre e,n.t, -t(? Issue an order abso lutely prohibiting the Indians from leaving their reservations for huntin ' privileges in Colorado. ?
