HheellDK'i I'rjlnx Evil.
Wheeling ha* imported a lot of Pitta
bargh'a ca*t-oHl"demi-monde," under th
guineof "waiter uirU," and a Wheelin
youth now takea bin drinka and at th
name time i* .leered and grinned at by
miM of "ieklj penauallty. And the ma
jorityof Wheeling nawipaperado not!!!
their ?oiceat?uch a crying aril.?Clark
bur<j Telegram.
The Telegram m to be under the in
preaiion that there in nome legal prooes
by which the nuUance alluded to can I
gotten rid of. The "demi-monde" colli
probably tncceu/aVf retlit any attemj
to rid the town of their presence. ]
would be difficult to make a cat-u agitini
thfiu aimply an "waiter girls" in saloon
The law would protect them io that <
cation on the ground that selling beer i
a lirer.pcd business in our midnt, an
tho-e who hold licenses to sell it hate
right to employ whoever they" please t
wait on theircuatomers.
We agree with the Telegram that th
importation of these^persons into ou
midst ia a "crying er il" and also a grea
reproach to our city. We are not aur
priced that the saloon men of the city ar
generally* down on it, for it has don
more to degrade their buainees than anj
thing that has ever occurred in our midal
It is as much as any decent nian'j reputa
tion is worth to be aeon going into a placi
where these girls are'emplojed.
Still, we do not see any way of pquelch
ing the evil. It certainly ought to b<
squelched in a summary manner II then
is any legal process by which the shame
ful nuisance can be reached.
There is one feature of this "waite.
girl" nuisance thai could tod should b.
brought to bear on tbe business withou
delay, and if cilitena who really desire ti
seethe nuisance suppressed and thecitj
rid of ill reproach, will take the mattei
in band, they can probably effect some
thing. \\e refer to the fact that th<
nuisanceconceals itself u much m possi
ble behind blinded windows.
Page 254 of the Acta of 1872-73 declarei
that "it ahall be unlawful for an;
person or persona, by agent or otherwise
to Mil intoxicating liquor* behind screens
(rotted windowa, or any other device design
ed or intended to proted the teller or bu]e
from public obtervalito"
Page 256 declares that every riolatioi
of this enactment shall subject tin
offender "to a fine of not less than twentj
dollars nor more thau one hundred dol
lars, and to imprisonment in the jail o
the county "not less than ten days noi
more than thirty days,'and pay the costi
of prosecution."
It is also declared on page 254 tba
"all cases where intoxicating liquor* an
sold in violation of this act, ahall be taken
held and declared to be common nuisan
cm;" and, furthermore, that any places a<
onanuing "snail im anui up ana aoaiea a
public nuisancer upon conviction of th<
keeper thereof."
It seems to us that these provisions o
the law can be brought to bear with dec!
JeJ effect on thin "waiter girl" buainesn
The traffic in at least the most prominen
"garden" in town where such girls nr<
employed is closely blinded from publii
view; no much so that at all hours of tin
night the passer by can see men and boyi
trying to get a glimpse of what is goinj
on inside by peeping through the doori
u they open aud abut, or by a glimpw
between a blind and a window sill.
More than half the allurement of thii
whole illegitimate and demoralising buai
n?M consists in this concealment of i
from the gate of the public. The idea 1
not only to protect those Inside Iron
observation, but also to force everybody
who iii curious to know what id going ot
Intldo to come in and see and partici
pale.
We bit therefore that once them
"gardens" are compelled to hoist theii
blinds aod do buainess according to law
exposed to the public eye, that it wil
direst them at once of the charm and al?
of the profits of novelty. Such an ex
poiure will prevent almost every mat
who has a!ly character to lose from beinj
seen inside such place*.
The Nhooting ol General Duval'i
Deputy During tlio Late Halt

Mate.
Many ot our reader* mill no doubt re
member that about two weeks ago then
appeared in our telegraphic news a brie
notice of th'e shooting and wounding %
Internal Revenue Deputy Collector L
Doolittle, of Iluntington, in this Stale
while raiding illicit distilleries in Sum
tuers county.
We hive obtained from Collecto:
Duval's Chief Deputy, Mr. T. R. Laird
who has jast returned from a three week'
official visit to the lower part of Oen. Du
isIV district, some of the particular cit
cjimtancM of the attempted assassina
tion of Mr. Doolittle.
It appears that wheu the late Deput,
Collector, Q. W. Atkinson, with a force c
special deputies, made his very succew
ful raid on crooked whisky stills in Mei
wr and adjoining counties in April an>
May last?a full account of which w
published at that time?on? of th
most notorious and desperate of th
"moonshineri"of thai regiou,getting win
of the raider*, had removed hit distillin
apparatus to a place of concealment. Tk
vigilance of Mr. Atkineon anil his sue
ceeaor, Mr. Doolittle, was, however, equt
to the emergency, and tbe "shebang" wa
again spotted.
During a mora recent raid led by Mi
Doolittle, and extending through the ei
tire month of August, Mr. Doolittle an
his men pounced tampon the sheban
tnd found H all in apple-pie order, full
m.rgcu iou primea ior ine proaacuo
of more o 1 the "crooked." It ! needle*
o ?? that the bori mide short work c
'Wr prey, tearing only broken Iragmenl
far their owner to ipirit *w?r tnd cot
<*?!, >bonM hedeair* a eecond time t
uke thit precaution. Thulittle ikirinu
occurred on Saturday, Augtut 18th. 0
Ihe following Monday, Deputy Ddoiltlh
hating reeled onr Sabbath with hie me
meral mike away, and baring a prelf
dear inkling oi another "moonahine-'at.
bang in the same neighborhood u the on<
? demolished the previous Saturday, tool
a portion of hia force and went back bj
- a different route to clear that one out, i
the/ could find the plate of iu abode ii
" the mountains. In their search the;
J went to the house of Qeorge W. Lilly
e on the hills of Little Blue Stone riter, tr
a make certain inquiries which they hai
- reason to believe aaid Lilly could answer
* They found Lilly absent in the woods
hunting, as his family alleged, and whili
wating for his retnrn from the woodi
8 they took dinner with the family. Aftei
e dinner, end Lilly not returning to thi
j house, the parly mounted aud started tc
scour tho adjoining wood*, not in search
|t of Lilly ao much aa of the old copper
it atill and mash tuba which they were or
,a the track of. Hating gone from a quarter
>. to half a mile from the houae,
? and while treading a bridle path
j through the bruah, in aingle file,
a Mr. Doolittle in front, three ahota were
o fired in rapid aucre**ion from the hill*
aide above them. The firat shot struck
e Dooiittle in the lelt arm, paining entirely
r through it two inches below the elbow,
,t Quick aa thought Mr. Doolittle dismount_
ed, but aa he threw his right leg over hii
e horae the aecond ahot atruck him on the
e knee, the ball, aa subsequent exnmina
. tionahowed, penetrating more than three
inches inward and upward toward the
. knee joint,
s The party soon after returned to Mr,
Lilly's house, their wounded leader being
. atill able to ride his horse. Before reach9
ing the house Mr. Lilly met them, he
s having, as he stated, returned home just
, at the moment the shots wero fired, and
started to Me what was up.
r Mr. Doolittle was kindly eared for by
e Mr. Lilly and hi* family until the next
l day, when his men, assisted by several ol
} the neighbors, carried him on a litter o
r distance of aix mil64 to New river, whence
r he was conveyed by a bateau to Hinton,
. on the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad,
a From that point he reached his home it
. Huntington by rail the following day.
Mr. Doolitile's wounds, though not tie.
j cessarily dangerous, are considered aeri
, ous, and may result iu a permanently
, lame leg if not a crippled arm also.
' We are glad to learn that Qen.Rautn,
Commissioner of Internal Revenue at
r Washington, as soon as he lenrned oi
Deputy Dqplittle's misfortune, diiected
j Collector Duval to continue him in com9
mission and appoint another deputy to
r perform his official duties until he re?
. covers.
j Mr. Doolittle was considered by the Inr
ternal Revenue Department a faithful
, and efficient officer, and it would seem
that his energy got the better of his dist
cretion in the venture which came so
j near turning uiui uia 1110.
After the wounding of Mr. Doolittle
[ the leadership of tho raiding party de3
volved upon one of the ten special depun
ties employed lor the occasion, and the
t work was continued till the end of the
month, resulting in the destruction of
j some fifteen illicit distilleries with con.
siderable quantities of mash ready for
, distillation.
t This raid, together with that conduct,
ed by G. W. Atkinson, last May, has de;
veloped the fact that hut little regard is
s paid by the people of the mountain coun,
ties along the Virginia border to govern,
ment laws relative to distilling whisky,
, and the local revenue officers are of the
? opinion that the twenty-five or thirty distillleriea
destroyed in thit region by the
, two raids alluded to are only a small
moiety of hundreds of unlawful estabt
lishments of the same kind hid away in
, almost every guloh and ravine of the
{ mountains.
r W* see it stated in the dispatches that
' General Duval rode with the President
yesteraay in a carriage at the Marietta
reunion. Let no envious perron here'
abouta be disquieted. It was not our
r General Duval. He is here attending to
hii business.

MAYOR PALSlia'* RECEPTION SPEECH,
Mr. Pretiiml :? For many reason* I
take pleasure ib extending to you a hearty
welcotne toour goodly old iity. At the
Dut?ct of your professional career it wa*
10 Marietta, you came to;. be admitted to
the bar/ Many of our.eltizeoH havfe the
privilege of knowing you personally and
\ number of ua had the distinguished
liororof fighting at your aide and under
fonr immediate command during the
closing mighty struggle of the wmr for
Lhe preservation of the Union. It is
pour first visit to your native State since
assuming the trying duties of the Presilency;
that State which has so often
honored you and which you hate in no
tingle instanco failed to honor in rereturn,
but J especially welcome you
to this great National Ke-Union
of the ex-eoldier* and sailors of the war,
because the spirit which animated the
:ommittee.in'iia undertaking and successful
accomplishment has been as completely
ptlt into practical operation by you in
the administration of our government. I
deem it therefore most fitting that you
should be with us to-day not only because
vou are a veteran, but that your voice
may hereby be heard in the furtherance
of that spirit of harmony and good will so
beautifully andio universally invoked by
all who have addressed us during thfe
memorial week. Ladies and gentlemen,
I have the honor to introduce to you the
President of the United States.
President llayes stepped iorward and
was greeted with cheers by tho men and
waving of handkerchief* by the women.
He said: Ladies, fellow citlsens and
survivors of the great war,?I wish that I
was prepared to npeak suitably upon this
occasion. My friend Major Palmer, in
his address, informs mo that in every
speech made at this great National reunion
encouragement has been given to
that spirit of fraternity which it is the
desire of those associated with me in the
administration to do something dnring
our term of service to advance. . We
Jo not in meeting the people propose
to discuss any of the great party questions
which divide the people who honor us
with their attention. [Cheers] Questions
of administration, economic questions?we
leave them to be discussed before
the people by those who may be appointed
by the respective parties to carry
on those debates. We do feel that if in
visiting our fellow citisens in the ditl'erent
titates we can add anything to
strengthen the sentiment alluded to by
the Mayor it is tight ami proper
that we should do it. All who are familiar
with the history of our country
know that a hundred years ago there was
no North or South. The fathers were oue
throughout the whole country. Washington
and Jefferson were side by side
with Franklin and Adams. Dank I Morgan
and his Virginians marched from Virginia
to iloilon. Thi>v W0rm il Kinlnot
ami Nathaniel Green and his Continental*
were in the Carolina#. Tbe whole
country belonged to the fathers, and it u
to that rtate of iormoaf and fraternal
friendship that. we deeiru to come.
We are fur the Union u it in. [Cheer#.]
We are for the Constitution an it in, with
all it# amendment#. [A voice, "thai'# it;"
great cheers.] We want the citizen of
everj State to feel at home in every other
State. [Amen, and sheer#.] If a citizen
dI Vermont tramlain (taorgia or TVjxas
ior business or pleasure, we want him to
feel at home in tho* States. If a citizen
of Texa# or Georgia travel# North, we
want him to feel at home everywhere
throughout the Union.
Now, myjriendu, I do not propone to
detain you. I have made a much longer
speech than I intended, but you understand
the purpose. We may make mintakes
in method, mistak.es in measure)*,
but the sentiment I would encourago in
one o( nationality throughout the Union.
[Applause.] all regard the aertices
of that four years' war; we regard tha
Ariod of four yean u the mo?t
intercHtinE of our liTen. We fonghl them,
there ul u? ?!io were in the Union ?rmy

a the cordiality with which I have been re* i
i ceived makes me foiget that we have ever i
1 been enemies, and 1 assure you that I i
- would much rattier meet yoti an 1 i
- meet you to-day?a* friends?than in <
r the conflict of arm* aa you have been met i
i heretofore. [.Applause.] My friends, the ]
. flag I fought under for four years haadisa
appeared from the earth. The governI
ment Iattempted with my companions to j
establish is no more. We have but one i
flag; and that floats overevery foot of our *
. territory. We have but one Constitution, |
and that is the Constitution as it i*. i
- [Cheers.] Our quarrel, my friends, was
inherited. Slavery was established by ^
, tho Constitution of our fathers. It was <
a established by the men of tho North an \
a well as of the South. It was a relic of a i
s former age. As the ages and the country
3 progressed the free State* became |
, profoundly impressed with the idea that 1
i slavery was wrong; that it was a great i
I national crime; that it was the sin ol the j
5 age; that it was a sin against heaven and i
i liberty, The people of the South had ]
I been cducatea under different idea*, i
Their statesmen and their platforms de- t
. fended it; their ministers before holyal- t
, tars taught the people that it was right, i
- and tho people of the South believed it 1
t waa righL A conflict from time to time i
i ?a conllict of opinion?grew up. We i
t had adjustment*; we had the Misiouri (
compromise, and thnt of 18fi0, but yet It i
would not suit. At last free ideas ho tar 1
r prevailed that Lincoln was elected Pres- t
i idenL The people of the South, afraid c
. the institution of slavery waa in danger, t
, said, we have debated this quarrel in t
t the legislative halls, on the stump, in the i
: judiciary tribunals; we have debated it 1
i everywhere; now let us Ggbt it out, and c
1 they took up arm* and they aaid, we c
. leave these debatable questions to the T
power of arms and the sword, and we t
I fought and fought bravely.. Each section i
: of the country fought for what it thought i
was right. [Cheers.] i
What was the result? "Why, the South i,
was defeated, and as men and soldiers i
they were bound to submit with good i
grace to the result and to admit that the t
! result was right; that the tribunals which 2
they had selected had decided the controversy
against them, "Sirs, this is the p
, victory, this is the triumph." The ver- t
diet was against us. The judgment was e
pronounced against us, and what was n
it? It was put in tho three amendments r
to the constitution. The first declared that 1
slavery should no longer exist anywhere f
in tins broad land. The second declared t
that every man who was born in the r
United States should be a citizen of the tl
United State.". All men, white or black, p
were equal before the law. Not only *
this, bnt they declared that the public fi
debt of the United Htatcn should never be a
repudiated; they declared that no claims u
should be made for emancipated slaves; r
they declared that we should be a freo w
country, and that the Hag of the Union si
should be the Hag of the people every- tl
where, and to-day we have but one coun- *
try, but one Hag, but one Union, and that a
Union is inseparable. [Cheers.] n

THE WAR IN THE EAST.
Tlio Battle of Laval*.
A Vivid Description by a Correspondent
on the 6ro.und.
A Detail of the Russian. Movemonte.
The Turks Driven from Point to
Point Steadily but Surely.
N*w York, September 7.?A London
correspondent with the Russian army at
Lovatz thus describes the late battle
there: The artillery did moat of the
fighting until 8 o'clock in the morning,
when the right wing made a rush forward
and the musketry tire became heavy, the
Turks pouring a steady rain of fire over
the parapets. At 8:45 o'clock two regiment*
of infantrr were ordered up to aid
the Tiralleurs of DabrovilskL Even at
this early hour the heat is intense. An
stlicer arriving from the line of march of
these two regiments states that 100 men
bave fallen by the wayside overcome by
tbe heat.
At 9 o'clock the fire is increased in
HiciisivTt uu exicDUB mriner np ine
3*ma. The Tiralleurs are sweeping the I
rurkB down, and our guns open a heavy
5rc to assist the infantry in their onward
oovement.
At 9:30 o'clock Novinsky's regiment
wind* through a little defile behind one
)f the two Turkish redoubt*, and the twoi
regiments named after the German Em- j
peror move on the other.
At 10 o'clock the good newi arrives
rom the right that the Turks' positions I
lave been taken on that front, and !
i\no that the Russians undoubtedly
ire masters of that position. They must
low take the isolated ridge called Mount
lious, which overhangs Lovatz and forms
he western key of the position. With
his in their possession Lovatz is theirs
ind there then remains only the large
'edoubt forming the western key. At
10:20 tho firing ceased entirely, upon the
-ight, the Turks having lied across the
ralley, leaving Drobovalsky unopposed,
ien. Skobeloff has gone with ten battalons
towards the extreme left to take
fclount Rous, the isolated ridge. At 10:30
he pattering of musketry on the left tells
if 8kobelofTs advance. At 10:45 his colimn
is peon moving down the slope of
Se amphitheatre and crossing the little
ralley intervening between the slope and
tfount Rous. The Russian artillery now
ipens a tremendous shell fire on the slope
>( Mount Rons facing Skobelofl, and the
Turks are seen running from their enrenchment
on the slope of Mount Rous.
U the foot, however, and near the highray
they hold their ground and lire rapdly
upon 8kobelolT'e advance. The heat
a now actually frightful, and it seems
mpossible for the men to fight under it.
^ regiment from the reserve moves down
o the righto! the headquarter* to take
tfonnt Rous and cut of!' the retreat.
At 12:25 a battery moves tip to thesuptort
of the advancc of this regiment and
ikes a position on the road on tho eautrn
end of Monnt Rous. Ten minutes
fter SkobelofTs column rushes up the
oad and take* the height* of Mount
loos and he crowns the hill with his inuntry.
At 1 o'clock we have taken all
he Turkish positions except that on the
oad, the strongest of all, as it commanda
he little valley at the bottom of the amhitheatre
and has outlying detached
rorka to flank an attacking force. The
rat period of the battle haa now ended,
nd orders are given to advance our bateries
to the top of Mount Rons, and the
ight wing crept carefully forward to*
rard the foot of the amphitheatre slope,
o as to be in readiness for an attack on
he redoubt. By two o'clock the batteries
rere in their new position and had opened
terrible fire on the redoubL The comlander
of this position retired his Runs
) the hills back of his redoubt, an indicaion
that he believed the capture of. this
jrtification a foregone conclusion and
herefore withdrew his guns to prevent
iieir capture. It is a question whether
be Turkish officer did well or ill by his
len by forcing them them to defend the
>st position after the guns had been reloved.
It looks like a butchery for both
ides.

Edwin A. Pratt and Samuel L. Powers i
were appointed Secretaries.
David Dudley Field, Park Godwin, I
Horace White and Francia A. Walker :
were appointed a Committee on Resolu- 1
tions.
The resolution* attribute the present j
depremion to the erroneous financial and j
commercial policy pursued bj the Gov- j
crnment since the war, which makes it j
impossible for us to dispense of tho sur- I
I'iun prouucis 01 our lnausiry lo Oilier na- I
tions unless we accent in return the sur- >
plus products of their Industry. Aineri- 1
can shipping, it in charged, ha* been 1
swept from the teas by imposing taxes for
purposes other than revenue, thus protenting
cheap building or the advantageous
buying of ships, and for the revival
and healthy growth of shipping and other
interests a thorough revibionol the existing
tariff is needed. A reciprocity treaty
with Canada in advocated, and the*formation
of local organisations is urged.
One resolution entire is as follows:
"That as one means towards the revival
of commerce and general prosperity,
we ask, concurrently with reformed legislation,
n thorough revision of our commercial
treaties with foreign nation-,
many of which are unstated to the present
industrial and productive condition
of this conntry, and we ask also the negotiation
of treaties of commerce with such
countries as France and Spain, with
which we have no such agreement."
