flie Kepublicans of Went Virginia have
rtftjinlv no reason to be ashamed of their
filiations for Congress thus fur. Comwitli
tlmt of Judye I?oomis in tho
f.crtli district, and following with that of
j.ha W. Mason in the Second, they have
,*rhe<l. in t'?'r triumphal progress, the
nomination of (ien. (Jotf in this district,
jtae area trio of nominations for Congmt
that have never been surpassed, if
iniltfd ti|ualled, in this State, by either
jolilical j?rty. The Republicans may well
bt> proud of them.
Of (ieneral CJolfs nomination yesterday
at Clarksburg it ia not necessary to speak
at length. The fact that it was the outcome
of the universal expectation and de irn
of Republicans throughout tho district
id the highest compliment that could be
jdi! to.if. It came to him as tlie result of
. a united party sentiment He was called
for by all the counties as n unit, nnd he has

It is well known that Gen. Goff not long
?o resigned a prominent and profitable
cilice in order that he might devote himself
to his profession aud his large private business.
In resigning public position hejiad
tipressed his desire to resume his place in
the private walks of citizenship, and to take
no other part in polities than such as might
be assigned to him as the friend and advocated
Republican principles in times of
contest like the present. No doubt he
iouId have greatly preferred to follow the
line of life and occupation that he had
marked out for himself, and his reappearance
in the lield as a candidate for public
positiou is solely due to the mandate of his
jarty-a mandate which, under the cir
cumitances reierreu 10, ne nas recognizeu
and respected to his credit.
Hiving accepted this nomination, we
may be sure that General GolF- Mill throw
liim-elf into the canvass with all his earnfetntssautl
ability. We have no doubt
trut lie will make the most determined
contest that he has ever yet waged as the
champion of the Republican party. .This
is what his acceptance means. He will
Irave no effort untried on his part to secure
a triumph for the Republican party in this
Hut all the zeal and ability of a candidate
counts for naught if ho is not seconded by
corresponding zeal on the part of those
who have made him their candidate. Having
called General GotT from his retirement
it certainly is the duty of the Republicans
of this district to see to it that no
?Uort on their part is lacking to make good
the hopes and expectations aroused by his
nomination. It is certainly quite possible

by a concentrated and enthusiastic etTort
ou the part of Republicans. He is popular
with both parties', and now that Col. Wilson
is out of tliu canvass lie will get a support
in his own county, as well as in other
aunties, that he has heretofore been comJelled
to divide with the Col. and also with
John J. Davis, when before the people. In
187<J he beat Gov. Mathews in Harrison
county 330 votes, whereas, in 1874, for Con (. ress.heonly
beat Wilson 137 votes. Having
now no competitor from that end of the
district, he ought to poll a very heavy vote
in Harrison. Lewis, Gilmer, Braxton and
Doddridge, and we believe that he will.
Further, we believe that he will poll a heavy
vote in this county, and, as Mr. Hubbard
sai?l in convention, uo out of the Panhandle
with a handsome majority.
There is, therefore, every inducement to
encourage the Republicans of the First |
-district to put forth the,grandest effort

Clarkshuhu, August "?0?Noos.?The
main body of the Wheeling delegates arrived-this
morning, having left the city on
the 1.35 B. it 0. train, and arriving here in
time for breakfast. Among them was our
sablo brother, Col. Alex. Turner, the man
who can tell why he is a Republican if you
wake him up at 12 o'clock ftt night.
The all important question under consideration
thus far has been, will Gen'. GofT
accept? At this writing, that question has
not been answered beyond all doubt, but
the general opinion is that he will.
The streets present a rather lively scene,
the Congressional crowd being augmented
by the attendance of delegates at the Republican
county conventimi. Three brass
bands make the air melodious with their
At 10 o'clock the Harrison county convention
met in the Court House. Every
district was represented. Major A. C.
Moore called the body to order. W. J.
Kearns was made temporary chairman and
\V. F. Richards, of the Clarksburg Ttltytam,
was appointed Secretary. The proceedings
were interesting and the utmost , harmony
and good feelingseemed to prevail throughout.
The only debate of special interest
occurred over the question of endorsing a
Green backer for County Commissioner.
This the convention declined to do, and

person of D. W. Robinson. For the House
of Delegates, C. W. Lynch and Joltn L.
Ruhe, both of Clarksburg, were nominated.
Lynch is an excellent young man. He was
educated at the West Virginia University,
was appointed principal of the public
schools here, and is now practicing law.
Ruiie is a mercbar^and is highly thought
of and respected by the entire community.
While the County Convention was in
Bession, the delegates to the Congressional
Convention assembled in the upper room
of the Court House and eilected a temporary
organization. 0. L. llolliday, of
Marshall county, called the Convention to
order, anil in a brief speech nominated
J. W. Woftinden, of Weston, as temporary
Chairman. "Wotf." will, be remembered
as the man who hung his gate on the other
post in 1876, and it has hung there ever
since, and he says that it hangs plumb. On
taking the Chair he ma?ie a brief speech,
thanking the Convention for the honor,
tfcc. W. J. W. Cowdcn, of Weeding, was
chosen Secretary. The Committees were
then named and a recess taken until 2
o'clock. Ohio county was represented on
these Committees as follows: Permanent

Convention reassembled at 2o'clock,in the
Court House. Every seat was filled and
the room was handsomely decoraleil and
the delegates comfortably provided for.
Among the deleglt.-s from Harrison was
J. D. Wilson, of CLrl>sburg, a sou of Col.
Ben Wilson, who is a pronounced Jtepublican,
and has been for a loug time, although
he has never felt freo to embarrass
his father's candidacy by taking an active
part in politics on the other side.
The following delegates from Ohio
county were present: C. P. Hamilton, G.
B. Jones, David Bell, John McCracken,
Alex Turner, S. K. Wallace, "W. P. Hubbard,

A permanent organization was effected
by the election of A. B. Smith, of Tyler
county, to the chair, with one Vice President
from each county. John McCracken
represented Ohio county in the list of Vice
Presidents. Mr. Cowden was made Secretary
and Wotfindiu Assistant Secretary.
Col. Sterling, of Ohio county; 1). S. Peter

the President to the chair. On taking
the chair Mr. Smith made a short speecn,
which wan roundly applauded. The various
committees made their reports lion.
C, D. Hubbard, from the Committee on
Resolutions, submitted the following
which was unanimously adopted as the expression
of the Convention:
The Republicans of the First Congressional
district of West Virginia in convention
assembled, hereby atlirm their adherence to
the principles of the platform of the National
Republican Convention held at
Chicago, aud point with pride and gratification
to the record of the Republican
party since it has fold the management of the
National Government, claiming that it is a
party of progress and reform. }t has securo'd
to us a restored union of States
which mufit be perpetuated. It has made
freedom and not slavery the foundation
of our government and secjjr.c4 Jhe
equality of ull men before tho law. ft
has given us the best curxency the people
have ever had, so that each dollar recognized
by the government is the equal of
any other dollar recognized by tho government,
whether of gold, silver or paper. It
has largely reduced the national debt and
made tTie'creuit of {)ie nation equal to the
credit of the most favored nations on the
globtf, TJie /rjepd of labor find Jiujnan
rights, it Iirh bo regulated the tariff on imports
as to favor American labor wherever
it comes in competition with foreign labor,
and lias opened up the pathway of humanity
so that the highest positions in tho gift of
the people are olfered to tho humblest
citizen.. In renewing our fidelity to ltepublican
principles wo specially pledgo our*
selves to tho policy of protecting American
| labor as conducive to the best interests of
I all tho people; to iho hiaintonance
of our public schools as
[ tho palladium of our liberty
and tho safe-guard of our government; to
the protection of adopted citizens at home
or abroad equally with those of native
birth; to a civil service which shall securo
the best administration of tho government;
to a free and unrestricted ballot# so that
every citizen may cast big vote as he
pleases and have it counted as cast.
We favor tho aid of the General Government
to works of internal improvement, as
the rivers and harbors of the country,
thus facilitating and cheapening commerce.
We believe it to be the duty of the General
Government to aid the cause of pooular
education to tho extent of its constitutional
ability. We demand that the National
domain should bo devoted to free
holm's for the people. We remember with
gratitude those who imperiled their lives for
their country's preservation, ami deniuud
that the pledges made to those who died
that the country might live, as well as those
who survived to enjoy the blessings
their valor .won, shall be
redeemed by ample pecuniary aid and
itvnerous emoluments. We heartily endorse
the administration of the General
Government as conducted by President
C. A. Arthur and his Cabinet, and while
wo deplore the great calamity that deprived
ai of that noble patriot and great statesman,
James A. Garfield, we rejoice that
the affairs of our country are still faithfullyadministered
by his successor in otlice.
Finally, we deprecate all sectional feeling
and tendencies, and as evidences of our
faith and practice wo pledge our utmost
elforts and invite all good citizens of the
Suite to unite with us in placing West Virginia
on the roll of Republican States, her
honored birth place and rightful heritage.
The chairman announced after the
adoption of the resolutions, that nominations
for a candidate for Congress were
now in order. Whereupon the" roll of
counties was ordered to l>e called. When
Brooke was called (after Braxton) a delegate
yelled out for Golf. The cry was then
taken up aud the entire Convention reechoed
the magic name. IIlisted, of Harrison,
himself prominently thought of for
the position, added fuel to the fire of enthusiasm
by announcing GolF a3 the countv's
pliniCH. n 11 HnKJinnl
for Ohio county, and Hans. Criswell, of
Marshall, promised GOO majority for the
nominee. Smith, of Tyler, said that there
was one name that cheered the hearts of
ihe Republicans in that part of the district,
the name of Golf, and they wanted him.
Mr. llart, of the New Martinsville MrsKiiger,
responded for Wetzel and promised
that "Good" tilings should come out of
that Democratic Is'azereth this time.
At this point the convention seemed to
get tired of the formalities of the roll call,
and broke out into enthusiastic yells for
Got!'. Col. Sterling, of Wheeling, thereupon
moved that General Goff be nominated
by acclamation as the choice of this
convention. This motion was seconded
as one man by the delegates, and they
made the Court House ring with their enthusiastic
gokk's speech.
General GoiFbeingin the vicinity of the
Court House was sent for aud'broiight in,
and as he worked his way to the rostrum he
was greeted with a volley of enthusiastic
cheers. As soon as the house quieted
down he arose and made a short speech to
the delegates, expressive of his sense of the
high honor they had conferred upon him.
His remarks were-brief, but eloquent and
fervent, so much so that brother Alec Tur
ner, 01 ueuiing, wno sat m tlie Iront row
of scats, was mos*ed to ejaculate Amen in
good old regulation style. As the General
closed, the convention again indulged itself
in a round of cheers for the nominee.
It can be said of the convention that assembled
here to-day thatjt was composed
largely of the best men in the party. It
was eminently a representation of the
intelligent and respectable masses who
compose the Republican party of the First
Congressional l)istrict of West Virginia.
The proceedings were harmonious and enthusiastic
from first to last, and the feeling
on all hands was to pitch in and win this
contest by putting forth every exertion in
each county of the district. You may depend
that this is the feeling that the delegates
will carry home to tbeir constituents,
and this feeling will take possession of the
masses when the ball is opened.
The following Congressional Executive
Committee -was. announced, viz: G. \VI
Atkinson and Hugh Sterling, ofOhiocountv;
0. S. Marshall, of Hancock; 0. L. Hollicfay,
of Marshall; 0. W. 0. Hardman, of
Tyler, F. A. Robinson, of Harrison, and J.
W. Woliindin, of Lewis.
After the Convention adjourned I met
Cousin Hans Good, who had just arrived
from Weston, and I asked him how he
liked his competitor. Hans said that "he
was an honorable and distinguished man."
Tiiis was somewhat evasive of my question,
but I forgave mv{countryman for it,jfeelim:
that he was sorely touched over it. and
would rather it had been somebody else.
eight iiusdiied majority.
Harrison county promises 800 majority
for Goir in this contest Some say it will
reach a round 1,000. The question asked
here is: What will the Panhandle do?
C. D. Hubbard said in convention that it
would give Golf a majority. And so say
we all.

Philadelphia, August 30.?The Keeley
Motor Compauy held a meeting last night
at which all differences between the inventor
aud the company were adjusted and
an understanding arrived at that upon the
payment of $1,000 to Keeley and issuance
of 1,500 additional shares of the company's
stock to him the inventor was to go ahead
with the work of building his engine.
Keeley consented and further announced
he was ready to explain everything to Mr.
lioekel, the officer appointed by the Court
to examine the motor. Keeley "bound himself
to forward his work so that by the 10th
of December IJoeJiel could report to the
Court that the idea was patentable. Castings
have been made for a 500-horae power
engine, and Keeley promises to put this
together to the complete satisfaction of the

I'ittsuuigii, August UO.?ICach day the
exact condition of affairs within thu lines
of the iron strikers becomes more Apparent,
and, according to present indications, thu
whole matter is fast narrowing down to a
question between the puddlers aud the
men of the tiuishing departments. Whereever
a puddler is found, he is invariably
defiant with a determination to stick to the
fight, aud|his "voice is for war." On the
other hand, the representatives of the conservative
element are always Iound among
the finishing men, and among them are
many who believe the struggle to be useless,
and eagerly watch for sotno opportunity
of breaking the strike without
throwing oft their allegiance to the Amalgamated
Association. This morning a
roller who has lonir been a member of the
Association expressed himself quite freely
in regard to the strike. The conversation
turned upon tho action of the Wilson,
Walker & Co. men, when this gentleman
"Those men have no permission to go to
work. They are trying to break the Association
ana have no right to work Car^
negie iron.. Why don't tho Association
bold a meeting and stop these men at Carnegie's
from working, as they are violating
the constitution and by-laws, as tho iron
goes into Wilson Walker's bumper shop
to be made iuto links and pins, truck barf,
etc? Are they afraid that trie men would
rebel aud make a break ? This is the lirst
strike of the entire Amalgamated Association.
The way it Htood before, the puddlers
could strike and finishers work, or
the puddlers might work while the finishers
struck. Now tbey are all out together
and those blacksmiths in the hammer
shop were members of the
Amalgamated Association and bound to
stay out just as long as the rest. Some of
these men were ou the mill committee,and
they stood by the puddlers as ihey were
bouud to do. Who gave them permission
to go to work ? If I am a good workman
I want no mi) (committee to back me, and
why does the Association carry those who
are not good mechanics ? Were it not for
them there would be no mill committee.
iUU UUJVK-k JO IVJ Die 1. Hill IIJU IJlUUilgCI uuca
not discharge a man unjustly, but no manager
who knows his business will discharge
a competent man. The mill committees
acknowledge that I am a good workman,
but if 1 would go to work they would call
me a 'blacksheep.' There are as good
workmen outside the Association ns in it.
"The majority of tlie men want to go to
work. There is more suffering among
them than the people know of. The officers
don't want to ca.ll a distriut meeting
for fear of a break, for they well know that
the men would vote to resume work. Kven
some of the puddlers would like to go to
work, but they would like to have the
finishers take the first step. The puddlers
are in the majority, and when the strike
started they wanted fifty ceuts per ton of
ap advance and allowed the finishers a
raise, but this was afterward voted down
and the scale put at ten cents per ton
extra for fagots and old rails. The iinUhers
could have got that without thu associa- .
tion. Kven if the scale is granted I would
not gaiu more than S9.S0 in a year by the
advanced rates, and one third of that would
go to the helper.
"There is a great mistake made in estimating
the wages made by a roller. A bar
mill roller can average "sixteen tons per
day,for which he receives twenty cents per
ton. This gives him 511 'JO per day, and
one-third paid to tiis helper, leaves him
$7 4G per day. This is much below the
$20 per day which the puddlers say we can
make. We have losta'great deal of money
by this injudicious strike, and if it is not
closed soon the organization will be in
This workman said that he was in fair
circumstances, and did not need any assistance
from the.ABSociation. "But," said
he, "if I was in need I would not apply to
the officers, for I would only be put oil"''
A puddler, who was next interviewed,
took the opposite side, as follows: "J.ct the
uuisners go in. ne win ruck 10 me
strike until we get $0 per ton. We have
carried a strike alone be/ore this and can
do so again."
It was learned this morning that five
lodges in this district have united ia a request
to the executive committee that a
district meeting be called. Delegates from
Youngstowu and Wheeling are expected
to be present, and although they may not
have a vote their influence is to be thrown
for a cessation of host ilities. This is virtually
denied by Mr. C. D. Thompson, of
Wheeling, who telegraphed the officials
this morning that all were "firm and united,ail
reports to the contrary notwithstanding
A McKeesport correspondent gives the
situation at that place as follow?:
At last the Natioual Rolling Mill has secured
a sufficient number oi puddlers to
run their works full, and to-day every fur- .
naee is making iron. Their paymaster, Mr.
Williamson, went to Cumberland on Saturday,
where he formerly lived, and as the
mill at that place is shut down, he did not
have much trouble in securing puddlers. :
Eighteen men came here, agreeing to go to
work, but on arrival here seven of them
were induced by the union men not to go to
work, and did not go, but the remaining
eleven are now at their furnaces. Muckroller
Brown and several other prominent
union men resumed work to-day. Men 1
are leaving the union every day and going '
to work, yet in the face of "all this the :
union men as a majority cannot see that
the scale will not be signed by the firm
and stubbornly refuse to go to work before i
it is too late. All who refuse now to go in I
connot get work anywhere in this place, I
unless it should be at laboring, and if they
don't want laboring they will havo to move
away from here. Some of them own property"
and they would consequently i
either have to sell or rent their ,
homes here and pay rent
somewhere else. If they sell it may be at 1
prices much below the value of the property
or \ybat they could get tor it did they I
not have to move away. Some of thein
will undoubtedly live to regret their stubbornness.
To show the folly of some of
them who had been getting "big wages in
the mill?and who would get it again if
they went in?go up the P., V. & C. R.* R.

0it?vni? Island, 2tec., August CO.?The
condition of com iu this part of the State
is first-class. There has been no fain
for some time, nevertheless there is con-'
siderotic moisture in the ground, and crops
of all kinds are in good condition. In the
counties north of here there will be a good
crop this year. A long the line of the Union
Pacific from Lincoln to this point your correspondent
made inquiry at every station
as to the condition of com and other
grains, and received only favorable ieplies.
From Lincoln to the main line of the
Union Pacific, through the counties of
Lancaster, Saunders, and a part of Butler,
there is a succession of waving cornfields,
and, except In places visited by storms
in the early summer, there are no
poor fidds. At Raymond,Valparaiso, Wahoo
Valley and other stations corn in the
field is being purchased on contract by outside
parties, and all agree that the crop is
certain to be a good one. The same favorable
report of crops may be made of points
aloui; the maiu line of the Pacific Kail road
from Ouiaha as far west as Grand Island.
The promise of all crops is excellent. Corn
is maturing rapidly, and the yield wili certainly
not be less than fifty bushels per
acre on an average. 'The best of feeling
exists among farmers in this part of the
State, all looking unon this as the farmers'
year. Some of fhe"choicest having land in
the State is along this line of railway, and
thousands of tons are now being put in
stack. Altogether the agricultural outlook
hereabouts and on this line of road is line,

ColuMni's, 0., August U0.?Col. Isaac W.
Tucker, of this city, recently received from
ex-Gov. St. John, the temperance reform
Goveruor of Kansas a letter in which he
gives his views of the itoues hi the present
political campaign in this State. Colonel
Tucker has obtained permission to publish
the fetter, which was written from Topcka 1
under dnte of August 12, and is as follows:
Iuuic IT. Tucker, Columbia, 0
My Deak S*Iil?Your letter of tho Oth
inat., lias just been received. Owing to the
fnct that we nre just now''commencing the
Republican campaign here in Kansas, it 1
will be impossible for 1110 to coiuo to the
State of Ohio during the present season;
otherwise 1 would gludly do so. It seems
that there is uo reason for the friend* of
temperance iu Ohio to withhold their earnest
support from the Republican party of
Ohio. The fact is rapidly developing that 1
the Republican party of this country is to 1
be the great party of morality and good |
government, against the Democratic party :
that seems wedded to the great
cause of free whisky; especially
is this the case iu' the North- 1
em States. The Republican State Con- '
veution of Kansas, on the 10th ixist., by j
almost a unanimous vote, strongly indoiseil
the principle of prohibition as applied to 1
the manufacture and B.*le of intoxicating ]
liquors as a beverage. The issue before the '
people of the country to-day is simply 1
whether we shall protect the homes of the 5
people against the aggressions of the 1
whisky ring, or let cowards surrender the (
government to the control of the brewers, (
distillers, and saloon keepers. For my 1
part I am of the opinion that the time hu's 1
come when we should meet the
question boldly and fearlessly, and open
a battle of' ballots that shall not 1
cense until the last dramshop in this coun
try shall be closed forever. The Republican
of Ohio have no reason to fear the
result if they will ou!y make a brave,
honest, and aggressive tight. In such a
struggle you will have with you every citi
7.en who thinks more of his home than he
does of the dramshop. In other words,
you will have morality, law and order, and
God Almighty on your side, against
drunkennes?, rowdyism, Sabbath breaking,
profanity, and the devil on the other.
There cau be no doubt of the result?let
the battle begin. Very truly, your friend,
John* P. Sr. John.
