Till: KIIWT DISTItlCT. H
Tbebeiuocmts of tho First district have
railed their Congressional convention at g
Weston ou the -Mth of this month. Tlio n
number of delpgiites is llxed at 21)2, or one '>
for every fifty votcB, or fraction over ?
(wcnty-fivo, cast for Gov. Jackson. The 0
representation is ?pj>ortioue?l as follows: si
traston, Hrooke, Vl\ Doddridge, 15; 81
Gilmer, 17; Hancock, 0; Harrison, 3!J; Jj
Lewis, 2:I; Marshall,.' 10; Ohio, 80; Tyler, 18, J
ami Wetzel, JM. As yet only two candi- o
dates are in the Held for the nomination, tj
viz.: J. II. Good, of this city, and Col.
Wilson, of Harrison. Kven Col. Wilson's n
candidacy is not apparently a matter of b
certainty as yet. The Republicans have >'
not yet railed their convention, but will do [j
so at an early day. Nor have tho Green- 0
backers called a convention. Tho vote of n
the district in ISSOstood as follows: Han?1?
u <(?: nnrflcld. 13.412* Wettvor. 1.- "
SIS, showing a Democratic minority of 884. j]
Col. Wilson lias been live times a can- t:
didate for Congress, elected four times and F
defeated ouce (by J. J. Davis in 1872) and jj
is, therefore, now in his sixth candidacy, tl
if eo be tlyit he is a candidate, which some o
few (mighty few) alloct to doubt.. lie is 57 *
years old, and has been in politics, in one ^
way and another, ever since 1852. It is t:
not be denied that he occupies a strong position
before the Democracy for a renomination
in case he chooses to sail in as a ^
candidate. As to his probable fate incase [
begets the nomination, that is a horse of 1
another color. He had a mighty narrow 0
escape the last time. Col. Bob ileEldowney
recently summed up the Col.'s " imminent
deadly peril" in ISSO by- remarking that ?
although Wetzel county may not be mucin ^
of a heaven (as christened by the Colonel) *
yet it saved him from the other place the B
last time, and was all that stood between 8
him and?purgatory. f
THE SECOND DISTRICT. *
The Republican Congressional Conven- v
tion of the Second diotrict, that meets at ?
Fairmont on the 21th, will consist (at least *
theoretically) of 270 delegates, apportioned '
on the basis of one delegate for each fifty *
votes for Garfield in 1SS0, and one vote for 1
each fraction in any county over twenty- 8
live votes. On this basis Barbour will have e
17 vote?, Berkeley 30, Grant 12, Hampshire
7, Hardy 4, Jefferson 20, Marion 29, Mineral
15, Monongalia 35, Morgan 13, Pendle- v
ton S, Preston 17, llandolph 7, Taylor 25, 5
and Tucker l. The Republican vote of the
district in '80 was 13,701. The Congressional
Committee consists of N. N. HofF- j
man, W. II. II. Flick, A. C Sherr, A. H.
Fleming and K. I). JefFries. As yet no one S
looms up unmistakeably for the nomination.
The Democrats had 15,948 votes in t
the district in 'SO and the Greenbackere c
1,338: Democratic majority over tlioKepub- I
licaus and Greenbackere, 909. How far
the quarrel between Lucas and Iloee will i
diiatled the Democrats remains to be seen, f
life quite bitter nt this time. The Demo- s
erala hold their convention at Keyser on i
ti:e 11th. Both Lucas and llogo profess t
confidence of success in the convention.
T1IU THlitn DI8TMCT. '
The Democrats renominated John IS. '
Keima for Congress nt Charleston yester- I
day. Practically, he had no opposition. '
He seems to have made himself solid with *
the voters of the district by going in not so i
much for the "old flag and an appropria- <
tiou" us for a vigorous advocacy of large 1
"appropriations" for the Elk, the Kanawha I
and the Big Sandy. This is his fourth con- 1
secutive nomination, lie is only 34 years of 1
a^o, having been born in 1S4S. His district, J
as now constituted, gavo Hancock 12,051 i
votes in 'SO, Garfield 7,815, and Weaver
2,$71, showing a Democratic majority over J
all of 1,935. The Republicans have not yet
wiled a Congressional Convention, noi 1
have the Greenbackere. The district is the 1
smallest of the four West Virginia districts >
in point of population, containing only ^
143,9112, against 157,270 in the Fourth,
103,315 in the .Second, and 153,040 in the
First. t
This district, known ns the 'Shoestring," ^
from its long stretch along the river, from ^
the top I'leaaanLs down to the end of ?j
Wayne, includes considerable territory tlmt \
used to be in this district, viz., lMtchie, t
Calhoun; Pleasants, "Wood and "Wirt. It fi
gavu Hancock 13,S95 votes in 1S80, Gar- t
field 11,14ft and Weaver 8,838, showing n i
Democratic minority of 0,089. The Demo- ?
trats expcct success only bv n plurality
vote, through divisions of the opposition.
The Republicans have already their candidate
in the field in the person of ei-J udge 1
Loomis, of l'arkernburg, and tlio Green- t
backers have named Dr. Harbee, of Mason, 1
as their champion. The Democrats hold *
their convention on the 10th at Point Pleas- t
ant. The aspirants are Dave Leonard and J. >
M.Jackson,ofParkersbnrg,J.S.S.Hauler, *
of Jackson, and Kustace Gibson, of Cabell.
l-eonatd seems to be ahead, but not strong
enough to distance the other three combined,
and hence may beaten after all by
J compromise man. All sides aro prepar* 8
tog for an animated canvass as soon as the
Democratic nomination is made.

respects local rates on the West Virginia
roads. He carries it around with him, it

jead of "monopolies" or "subsidies," the
Democracy would of course have tackled

Philadelphia, August 3.?A correspond- n
2nt writing from lloutzdalc, Pa., says: On 5*
rhursday last one of the miners employed j,
it the Webster Colliery was killed by a t!
bauk of coal falling on him while at work ti
in his "room." He was buried yestorday, 'J
i short time between his deatli and burial,
but as it is customary in this region for all fc
;he employed in a colliery, wben an acci- w
lent of that kind occurs, to remain "out" P
until the victim is buried, and as this
muses loss to both operators and employes, '
:hey cannot afford to keep the body for any
length of time. The body was prepared for fa
jepulture yesterday morning, after which 8'
it was placcd in a coflin in tho front room 111
jf the house and, after those then present w
nad viewed tho remains, the lid was t
screwed on and tho undertaker, or his as- w
listant, toolc his departure. This, of course, i,'
imposed upon his relatives (in this caso a 8i
jrotber) the Inhuman and needless task of
emoving tho lid to allow any subsequent ^
jailers who desired to view the deceased. p,
rho lid might have been left off until the
imo for departure had arrived. But bad
is was this it was, I think, eclipsed by what
ollowed. .
At about three o'clock the undertaker ar- 01
rived with a wagon?an ordinary business A
ivagon?to which was attached a pair of ni
aureus, unvcii u> u uiuu wearing an oral* at
inry working suit of clothes, topped off by A
icap, nnd,having pinned to the .lapel'of 01
iiis coat a large whitu medal, the emblem, I 01
suppose, of Bomo club of which ho was a b<
iiember. ThP undertaker also wore an lj
rdinary suit, topped off bv a slouch hat, and
as, 1 think, without a collar. Immediately
non his arrival, witliout giving relatives or
lends a chance to take "tho lost look" ho
gnaled to have tho coffin conveyed to tho
earse, which, by tho way. was entirely too
iort, as at least eighteen inches of the cofn
protruded over tho rear, and upon Its
elng placed therein, without attempting
i any way to arrungo the mourners and
>llowerH, signaled to the driver to go
head, cauilng those who wished to follow
tojthe gravo to run In order to catch up.
I have honestly seen raoro ceremony oh*

ad announced that the fight was to be acjrdiug
to the rules of the London prize
ng, with the exception of there being one
linute between the rounds, the men anvered
to the call of time. It proved to be ;
regular slugging match. Carlow at first
ireed the lighting and drew first blood
om Vaughan. Seven rounds were fought
i fifteen minutes. Curlow won a full in
itheflecoud round, but after that Vaughan
ireed the fighting and closed in on Curlow
id ended the rounds by fulling heavily
u him.
At the conclusion of the seventh'round
was found that Curlow's kneepau had

le winner amid a tremendous uproar.
The purse was for $200, but av large sum
f money changed hands in bets. Vaughan
ad the call in the betting.
Neither mau was badly hurt about the
ice, but each gave and received some terlic
body blows.
At the conclusion of the mutch there was
emendous excitement, and the feeling
etween the partisans of the fighters ran
igb, though no disturbance took place.
The battle was fought under the protccon
of the police. A permit signed by the

From an Kxteniloi of the U. 8. (leolORl*

Special Dispatch to tlio Intelllgenecr.
Washington, August 3.?With referenco
to the amendment to tho civil sundry service
bill, providing for tho geological surveys
in the States, and which, if it passes,
will affect West Virginia llrst among all
other Slates, Mr. Kenna believes the Conference
Committee will agree to it to-morrow,
and that it will become a law. There
is muu uuuui uuuui ugrcumeni, uu iiiuikb,
and it will bring tho mineral interests of
his .Statolnto prominent National notoriety
within a brief time.
Washington, August jj.?The correB])ondent
of tho Intklliokncku had the
following interview with ilepresentativo
Kenna:
Said your correspondent, "Mr. Kenna, 1
notice the Senate has stricken out the words
Of the public domain,' in tho clause of the
civil service bill relating to geological surveys.
Will you tell me exactly what the
effect of that amendment is ?"
"The effect of that amendment is to extend
the United States geological surveys
into the States."
"How is that?"
"When the bill .was considered in the
House, a number of gentlemen, consisting
chielly of members from West Virginia,
Virginia, Tennessee, Michigan and Missouri,
and some other delegates, endeavored
to secure an amendment to that bill
which would extend the surveys into the
Slates. Because of the rules which prevent
amendment# to appropriation bills cham;
Lug existing laws, they could not adopt
tho phraseology they wanted, a point of
order being made against it; but barring
u majority at command they did increase
the appropriation $100,000 for the general
survey and secured an amendment requiring
a geological man to be made of tho public
domain of the United States. This was
dono with the idea that by an amendment
in the Senate, which would strike out the
words "public domain," those words being
in this instance words of limitation, the effect
would be to extend the surveys into
the States; and the Senate, as anticipated by
its committee through our own Senators
and others, has stricken out these words.
Thus we have avoided parliamentary difficulty,
and if the bill finally passes in that
shape, which I regard as now assured, secures
the extension of the surveys into the
States. In my judgment it is a most important
and valuable enterprise, especially
as it relates to those States like Virginia auii
West Virginia, which are already celebrated
for their mineral deposits.
"In what special respects do you look for
advantages to West Virginia "from these
surveys?" "In
tho first place, the known mineral
deposits are so authenticated by government
investigation, maps, exhibits, etc.,
and their relationship to each other that
value is increased many fold. In the second
place it is believed by scientific men
that iron ore of the different kinds exists in
that range of mountains so proximately to
each other that it can he mixed in the furnace
aud.produce the finer qualities of the
inetal at a much' less cost than in any other
part of the world without the use of 'flux,'
which is about one-fourth of the cost of the
production ot the metal. The iron in the
Pennsylvania furnaces is made from ores
brought from Irou Mountain, from
Michigan and from other distant parts of
the United States besides the production
of Pennsylvania. This necessarily greatly
increases the cost. The admixture of ore
secured in this way does not overcome the
necessities for "11 ux." If, as is supposed,
the ores of a character to overcoino the
necessities of its use are found and developed
in this mountain range, with ^oal of
the finest quality for the furnace in
abundance in the same locality, this industry
alone will make the region to be
surveyed in a very short period of time
one of the richest and most densely
populated in the world.
Gypsum, when ground, "used as plaster,
enters largely into consumption as a fertiliser
in all the Atlantic States. It is brought
now principally from New Fouudlaud.The
cost of transportation is paid by the farmer
aud consumer. The mountains of Virginia,
and and West Virginia are known to
be full of it, and all that is needed for its
development by investment and capital,
and its production for one-fourth
its present cost, is such authentication
as this survey by its investigations will
give it- This" fertilizer is of insignilicant
importance when compared with deposits
of mineral phosphates along the southern
sea coast, and in South Carolina, and
is being utilized to a limited extent. These
phosphate deposits are believed to exist in
great quantities along the rivers and coasts
of North Carolina, perhaps Virginia in
South Carolina and Florida, certainly at
many points, easy of access to demands in
our own section of country. If this belief
is sustained by investigation, it will be
worth more not only to the United States
but to the world tlian all the gold and sil
?v. iU VAioicutu. UUU oe pro.
duced as cheaply us coal and ita preparation
for use ought not to cost exceeding live dollars
a ton. This and other phosphates of
similar diameter now cost thirtv-ttve to
Ufty dollars a ton. At ten dollars a ton it
would reduce the cost of the cereals
nearly one-third' and farm labor inestimably.
But apart from this as an
illustration it is a fact now recognizI'd
throughout the country the mineral resources
of West Virginia is not exceeded
by any like area in the United Slates, either
in quantity or value. We have for severnl
years through Congress been paying several
hundred thousand dollars for -explorations
in the western territories of the United
States and as a result have received
surveys and admirable exhibits
of their mineral and other physical
characteristics of soil, climnto. timlmr n?.
riculture, .topography, and tl?6 like. Why I
should our people be taxed to promote ]
this admirable enterprise without!
realizing a corresponding benefit? The)
extension of these surveys into West V.irginiy,
if we were governed solely bv local !
and selfish ends, will do tnoro to advertise I
our actual resources, bringing them into
prominence and thereby promoting the]
prosperity of the State than any other result,
in iny judgment, which our delegation
in Congress could hope to accomplish.
Moreover, an effort has been made to give
Bomo degree of political character to this
issue in West Virginia, confining their
views to a local standpoint, and,
it seems to me, a narrow one.
Certain political factions have recently
bv their platforms denounced the State legislature
for a failure to appropriate out of
tho Treasury of tlio State a sufficient fuud
to mako a geological survey. While such
survey is greatly to be desired, as I lmve
indicated, tiie capacity of the Stato to make
it in a satisfactory manner, would necessarily
fall short of any reasonable and
proper demand. When made by the State
a geographical report would in its value
bo confined to local and Suite significance.
Ihe efforts .to extend tiio surveys by the
Government under its nnthority and by its
means, necessarily involves a completeness
and perfection in detail, whiph the Suite
could not reach nuil for which tlio Federal
government has both the appliances and J
the means to reach a conclusion which will
not only ho accredited by the Stato but by /
tho wholo country and civilized world."
"What will be tho cost of this work?"
"Oh, insignitlcant compared to Its valuo. ^
One-tenth the annual pension bill, onehalf
tho annual river and harbor, legislative,
army, or present sundry civil bill
will comnleto tho work and open a great
atlas of the mineral and other resources of
tho country to every school boy in Uio
land."
"If the IIouso concurs in tho Senate "
amendment aud then tho original pro- 1'
grammo is carried out, when will tlie ?
work in tho States begin ? jf
Probably at once. The triangluations of tlio
CtonM nnd irondndin nnrvov u-UI lin utllSroil P
and henco I am conttdent that a force, tak- w
ing Bristol, Teunesseo as u base of opera- d
tions will ut onco proceed southwest from o)
there and another northwest so as to work
both ways."
"Then West Virginia would be one of tl
tho earliest beneficiaries V" fi
"Undoubtedly, and why not. It would
bo one of tho first States survoyed anil ono ci
of the lirst, if not tho very "tlret, in the h

Vicu President, and introducing resolutions n
referring them to their proper committees. ^
Thomas "Wallace, President of the Blast
Furnace Workingmeu's Organization, ad- lj
dressed tho convention at tho afternoon P
session. There will be a great deal of busi- JJ
ness to be considered by tho committees, /t
but they will probably bo ready to report S:
Friday or Saturday. The modified h
constitution, which was drafted by ?J
a committee appointed by the n!
Cleveland Convention in August last,
will in all probability bo more satis- j>'
factory than the present one, particularly ,!
on the scalo question. This will be one of fil
the prime points to be settled during the et
session, and one which is likely to develop A
some difference. It is, whether the Pitts- '
burgh district shall be permitted hereafter m
to arrange scales for other districts in the tc
West as they have in the past. The west- ^
era delegates are canvassing such a change tl!
as will give them a voice on the important Ti
matters involved in the strikes. Si
They do not criticize either the justice or '*)
policy of the present strike, on the contra- j}
ry, now that they are in it, they propose to fu
tight it through another year. However, G
they hope to have it so arranged that questions
affecting tho general interests of the
trade shall be submitted to a vote, a major- ti,
itv of the districts 'deciding. This would P]
Uike away the dangers of the preponder- J?
anee now granted the Pittsburgh district. jB
Even-thing is passiug off harmoniously.
The convention will probably remain in T
session untif next Tuesday. ^
