H. L. SNYDER, Editor and Publisher, j
Thttrsdat, May 7, 1903 ,
Mr. Bryan sticks to silver and Mr.
Roosevelt stands by the negro. <
Let us have tax reform in West ,
Virginia. The people want it if the I
corporations don't.
The Steel Trust has re-elected 1
Charles M. Schwab president, and his salary
of a million dollars a year goes ;
right on.
Mr. Bryan is taking an active part |
in the good roads movement. Perhaps
he thinks if the roads are im- ^
proved he can make a better run.
While the President is making
himself solid with the rough riders in t
the West there are some smooth poli- (
ticians in the East busily undermin- '
ing his presidential props.
Mr Cleveland continues to deny *
that he is flirting with the presiden- j
tial nomination. Nevertheless, he has <
a lightning-rod sufficiently elevated to
attract any stray currents coming his (
way. I
The other day at one of his stops j
in Kansas President Roosevelt singled i
out a big negro policeman to give him i
a heartv handshake.
J, . (
There's one thing about the Presi- ,
dent that must be noted : He's either ,
really very fond of colored people or t
else he's playing consistently a deep <
game to get their votes.
The president of the Reading Rail- 1
road Company and the head of the
Anthracite Coal Trust, George F. Baer, 1
made the public sworn statement the
other day that the railroad only made r
a profit of three cents a ton on haul- <
ing coal at present prices. Wonder 1
if he expects anyone to believe such a ^
9 ^
yarn: ^
Can he prove it by the books and ,
accounts of the railroad ? (
At the annual encampment of the i
Grand Army of the Republic of West f
Virginia at Clarkeburg last week res- j
olutions were passed protesting against t
the action of Virginia proposing to <
place a statue of General Robert E c
Lee in Statuary Hall at Washington, *
Persons, no matter whether they fought
against General Lee or not, who at j
this day refuse to give him the honor r
due him and who seek to detract from i
his fame simply show their own iguorance.
The splendid Southern leader
is a hero to all the world save a few *
1 a\
narrow partisans, ana even meBe i
ought to be self-rebuked when they *
contider that an unprejudiced tribu- t
nal of all the people ha8 placed hie
statue among the immortals in the v
hall of fame in New York.
A notable scene might have been p
observed in Shepberdstown yesterday, J!
Wesley Seibert, a colored man, was a
buried, and the old Confederate sol- g
diers of the community and the busi- f?
ness men of the town marched in the
funeral procession, stood with bared
heads as the remains of the dead man *
were borne past them, and in a body t;
sat together through the funeral eer- "
vice in the colored church. Farmers c
left their plows, business men their of- s
. c
ficea and merchant's their stores to pay a
their respect to a man whose skin was ^
dark, but who had so lived his allotted fl
time on earth that he had gaiued their
confidence and esteem. Through the t
trying years of the Civil War Wesley r
Seibert had faithfully served the men t
who wore the gray, and when the con- ^
flict was over he settled down to work,
living a useful life and becoming a re- g
spected and creditable citizen. He tl
knew his place, and, never seeking in
things beyond him, attained a place y
in the community of which any man
might be proud. No partisan politi- ^
cians conld control him or his influ- b
ence, and when it came to questions
of general good or public ill he knew e
how to vote and work. He recog- "
nized the fact that the men with whom a
he had shared the privations and trials ^
or army lire, ana wno nau supported !
him and encouraged him in the years 11
eince the war, were his beet friends,
and he neither desired or needed the I
interference of uninformed or maud- $
lin sentimentalists of the North. The
Southern people were to him a!l that 8(
he wished.
There are two lessons to be learned
from the life and death of Wesley Seibert:
One is that a decent, respectable,
deserving colored man has as
much chance in the South as any
place in the world, and will have just
as much consideration from southern
people This we want our northern
friends to note.
The other lesson is for colored persons.
They can see for tbemsehee
that a useful and industrious life such
as this inau lived will win the respect
of the people, and that color need not
prevent a man from attaining success

community. We hope our colored |
men may learn something from yesterday's
demonstration. We want

qii-sti.jiis i in their general conduct
to heed fiieira Ivice and to work
with them, to truet them.

Tbe Good Roads Movement.
The County Court of Jefferson county
has endorsed the movement, whioh
now seems assured of success, looking
to important road improvements in
Shepherdstown district, and from the
interest that is being manifested it is
quite likely that the whole county
will catch the spirit. A delegation of
citizens from Shepherdstown district
appeared before theCountv Court on
Monday to approve the action of our
road supervisors in purchasing a crusher
and to endorse their plans for improving
the roads. Iu tbe delegation
were some of our largest taxpayers
and land-owners, and an address was
made to the court expressing the wishes
of our people on this subject. The
court expressed its willingness to further
the project, and will give its
sanction and official help to our road
men. With the backing of tbe court,
and under the enthusiastic leadership
of Supervisor James M. Hendricks and
his colleagues, the good roads project
is getting an impetus that will result
in vast improvement to our highways.
The stone crusher bought by Shepherdstown
district was put in uee on
the Sandy Ridge road the past week.
It works like a charm and fairly eats
up the stone. Supervisor Thos. J.
Link had gotten out what would have
been a big lot of stone to be broken
by hand, but it didn't last very long
when the crusher began to chew it up.
It soon ran out of material, and more
stone will have to be gotten. That
which was crushed i9 being placed on
the road now. The Juuction road is
in bad condition, and needs a great
deal of work. A good start has been
made, and we hope Mr. Link will continue
its improvement.
The crusher will next be used by
James M. Hendricks on the Moler's
road. He has a great quantity of
stone out, and will keep the machine
going for some time on that road and
others in his sub-district. The crusher
is run by a traction engine, but it
is hoped that an engine and roller combined
can be secured. With this additional
machinery first-class roads
can be made at comparatively small
? > ,1 fsl.oi.liur.lctAini <licfrir>t will
show the other districts in the county
what good roads are.
The County Court on Monday appointed
County Surveyor James K.
Hendricks to be superintendent of
turnpikes, an office created by act of
the last Legislature. We think no
better appointment could have been
made. Mr. Hendricks is an engineer,
and will therefore have the qualifications
necessary to determine questions
of grading and other features of road
work that have too often been neglected
for lack of technical skill. We
will stand for it that he will do bis
duty to the county, and that work
done uuder his supervision will have
to be properly performed. No money
will be wasted under his administration.
He is a son of Road Supervisor
James M. Hendricks, of this district,
who is recognized as one of the most
capable road builders in this part of
the State, and it will be wise in the
eon to avail himself of the experience
of the father. His interest in the work
he is called upon to do will insure the
very best results to the people. Mr.
Hendricks had recently been appointed
superintendent of the Virginia Ore
Bank mining operations in this county.
He presented his resignation as
county surveyor on Monday, but the
court declined to accept it and gave
him the new office in addition.

Rescued from Suffering
and Death by
Celery Compound
A Prominent and Popular Citizen, Says:
"After the U?e of Paine's Celery Compound,
I Am Now in the Best of Health."
The greatest of modem physicians, Prof.
Edward E. Phelps, M. D., LL. I)., after years
of long practice and close scientific study, gave
to suffering anil diseased men and women his
marvelous, life giving prescription, with the
conviction and positive knowledge that it had
peculiar virtues anil ample powers to cure.
Thousands of the strongest testimonials from
the l?est known and most reliable men and
women of our country fully sustain the claims
made by Dr. Phelps regarding his incomparable
Paine's Celery Compound.
One of the most convincing proofs fumi-hed,
comes recently from a gentleman widely
known in the capital city of the Dominion of
Canada. We refer to Mr. Alfred Brown, 91
O'Connor St., Ottawa, Ont. Mr. Brown's
letter fully demonstrates the fact that the
greatest sufferer may cast off his or her 1 urden
of disease and become well, strong, and happy.
It proves, too, that the great medicine maintains
more fully than ever l>efore its unrivaled
place in the estimation of people of wealth
and social standing as well as with the masses.
Mr. Brown says:?
" I acknowledge with thankfulness and
pleasure the fact that I have been cured of a
very painful illness of eight years' standing : y
use of l'ainc's Celery Compound. I had,
during the years of my illne?, tried almost all
the advertised medicines without deriving any
good results. I was also treated by several of
the best doctors of this city, hoping to find
that one of them, at least, would understand
my case.
" I was getting worse, and was told I w as
incurable. I was indeed in a critical condition.
I could not go from the house alone,
as I was liable to sudden collapse. I tried
hospital treatment, hut no relief or good results
came to me. I could not sleep; anything that

weak, restless, tired, and despondent: was
obliged to walk about with my hands pressed
firmly into my left side to ease my pains; my
feet and hands were cold continually; had
inclination to vomit, had profuse, cold sweats,
quick breathing, and would be racked with
pain for hours at a time.
"After the regular use of Faine's Celery
Compound for a time, I am now in the best of
health, have good appetite, and can use any
kind of food. Thank God I am my old self
once more, all through the use of Paine's
Celery Compound."
