Oo Thursday last during tho session of
lb* meeting at the rooms of tho Riverside
Iron Work*, called to consider the differences
between the manufacturers and the
woikinen, I sent a special message to Mr.
Cauipbell to request his presence there.
|!? Mine to tho meeting in respond to my
rei)ucst, ?n<l the only remarks Iio made
after he got there were to defend tho publications
that had been made in the newspapers
in regard to the strike, lie said
nothing whatever on the subject of the
strike or on any of the proposed methods
of witling it. He sat quietly by and
listened to the remarks of other persons.
Alter a great deal had beeu said in the
coQrwjof discussion I took occasion to goto
Mr. Campbell and nak him for hia views of
the matter. He replied lhai lie did not
*is!i to Bay anything or take any part
in til* meeting, or give auy advice
la the matter. 1 saw plainly that he was
iniioua not to identify himself with the
Mibmtions, ami in view of tho course
pursued toward him since by the Wheeling
Hfi/istcr, 1 now see the necessity for his
tome. I voluntarily tendered this statenentto
Mr. Campbell on the day the Jbytitr'i
false report came out, but lie declined
tout* it, Faying that he did not want, unksH
ho was pursued in this matter, to seem
to avoid any proper share of responsibility
thil might attach to his position, and he
would wait for further manifestations on
Ik part of that paper before using it Jnwnuch
as there is a plainly evinced effort
on the part of that paper to pursue him on
the subject, 1 feel that it is my duty to him
to make this statement as it occurred within
my own knowledge.
And further 1 will state, since this whole
milter lias been dragged before the public
by the Wheeling Ikyitlcr to excite prejudice,
that when Mr. Campbell was elected
Preeident of the lienwood Iron Works in
Juiiary last, lie took occasion to say in explicit
terms to the directory that tho only
terms on which he would consent to serve
were that he would accept no active duties,
mJ I know of my own knowledge that he
h? at nil times been very averse to assuming
any responsibility in connection with
the company's affairs, lie has for years
put declined to accept any salaried position
iu connection with the company on
the ground that his time was fully occupied
ty Jiia newspaper duties.

We could add to these documents it wo
JU *> dinposetl, hut we do not care to nullity
them in a matter thai Is so largely
personal. We could detail a conversation
that took place botween Mr. Edward
Kodgers, ex-Vlce-Presldent of the Amalgamated
AsHoclatlon, and the Editor of this
papor, not long ago, quite similar to that
with Mr. Norton, and which Mr. liodgers
will vouch lor as being almost identical.
Such men as Mr. Kodgera understand thoroughly
tho sinister purpose aimed nt by the
Jleyister iu this wholo business, and we are
content toleavo it in Buch hands and with
tho public at lurge for proper appreciation.

The Richmond Diti>alcho[ Saturday predicts
that "West Virginia will give her
usual /Jemocratfe majority on tho'lOth of
I this month. It would be diflicultto detino
perhaps with accuracy wliat Is tho usual
Democratic majority o( West Virginia.
.Some times it is more and some times less.
In this Congressional district two years
ago It was rather less than more, and somo
people are rash enough to believe, and
v.wuiuuaoon, fcuat a win uu ieaa una year
than it was two years ago. If this should
turn out to be tho case, and wo have known
more improbable events to occur, it might
happen that the very small margiu by
which Col. Ben Wilson went to Congress
| two years ago as tho representative of the
I First West Virginia district would be ox
I hausted to such an extent as to result in a
decided iuBulliciency of votes for
I his Democratic heir expectant. The
public mind Beems at least to be undergoing
a change in this direction. If there is
not a daily rising tide in favor of sending
Gen. Golf to Congress from this district
then all the usual signs of a coming change
are deceptive. This information is not
marked private and confidential and we
do not charge anything for it. Our friend
of the Richmond Dispatch, for whose Democratic
seiisibilities we have the highest
regard, should not be rash In estimating
the Democratic majority too high this year
iu West Virginia. This is an "off" year
recollect; and it is hard to tell who may be
off on election day. There is a sign of
weariness of Bourbonism throughout this
Congressional district.

will address himself to tho issues of the

I trust that there will bo a large turnout to

Special Dispatch to the lnlelllRoncer.
Olahkhhuho, \V. Va., October 1. A most
blood-curdling homicido occurred about
fourteen miles from here this morning.
About 1 o'clock John it. Boggesa, Jr.,killed
hlawife aud daughter whilo in a fit of
rnenfa/ derangement, fuduced, ft seems,
by strong drink. Tho facts as told by
Mr. William H. Nay, who was tho first to
come to tho rescue of tho family, are as
follows: Boggesa has been thought to boat
times not altogether right in his mind for
years past, and, when drinkiug, entirely
insane, About . ono o'clock this
morning ho attacked his wife
while in bed. She called a daughter, who
assisted her mother to get loose from her
father, 'i'iiey then lied the house and ho
grabbed a largo iron poker and followed
them. Overtaking his wife he hither two
blows, the second ono on tho back of tho
head, which proved fatal. It seems the
daughter killed, who was thirteen years old,
came up to htlj) lier mother, and with one ,
blow he killed ber also. The other children
lied, and. when Mr. Nay arrived he
fouud mother and daughter lying together
on the road near their homo entirely dead.
He found Boggess in the house in a (
state of intoxication. Ho denied the killing,
or knowing anything about it or being ,
lioggess was a well-to-do-farmer living on
Rock' Camp in Wade district, of this ,
county, and of an old and highly respect- ,
able family. The occurrence creates great
excitement aiid is without any parallel, in
this section since Clemms, who lived rear
this place, murdered his wife and whole
family nearly a century ago. He was
hanged; what will he fcltoggess's fate is
hard to predict.

Washington, D. C., September 30. Tho
National Tribune contains a long review of
the work of the Tariff Commission, gathered
from a conversation. Some of the
more interesting portions of this review
are the following:
"What industry Las been particularly
represented before you iron and steel?"
"No one has particularly represented
the iron and steel industry before us, and
the only persons who appeared in that interest
were a few manufacturers who came
merely to apologize for not coming. They
will prepare exhaustive statements of that
industry, and present them to us on the
return from the South." *
"What industry seems to have been
most prominently represented before the
iid.aiw.i.1.. ii.~ !-* * *
i iuuuuij me ougur iiucreai; uut we
have had more persona before ub to present
their views on the duty on quinine than
on any other subject. It was quite amusing
to see how little some of them knew of
the subject. No one could tell us how
many persons wire employed in the manufacture
ot quinine in this country 1
whether it was 10,COO or 500. The -fact is i
i that there are3)2 persona employed in the
quinine industry in the UnitedSlates."
"Were the representatives of the sugar
interest desirous of- having the present tar- '
ill' on that article reduced?"
"We have probably beard more on that
aubject than" any other of importance, i
This question, is viewed from three differ- ,
ent points of view the growers', importers' ]
and refiners'. They all appear to agree ,
that they can possibly stand the reduction
proposed at tlie end of the last session of (
CongreBa, which was to take off the 25 per ,
cent, increase imposed by the act of 1875." :
"Ilow much reduction will those en- ,
gaged in the sugar business stand ?" I
"They will stand the 25 per cent reduc- t
tion." i
"Next to the sugar interest, what was the |
principal interest uefore you?"
"I should think that the pottery men 1
have come to the front more than any oth- \
ere. xucv w?iu iu increase me present
tariff ou the fine wares; but, jib we are able
to compete with foreign nations in the commoner
grades, there is no great opposition
to lowering the duty on that class of goods."
"What uo you consider was tiio most important
testimony heard by the commission?"
"The testimony of tho free-traders as a
whole for it shows the full strength of
their position and the expert testimony.
This latter was very thorough. We had
some thirty or more of the. most thorough
experts in the New York Custom-House
before us. We began with Schedule A, and,
taking the duty on each article through
every schedule down to the free list, we
nnUle a thorough examination us to the effect
and results of thetarifton each item,
inquiring where there had been any Questions
arising in the levyiugof thetaritt and
the reasons therefor."
"What was the general character of the
testimony of the free traders?"
"There have been two classes of free
traders before the -commission. Sensible
men like Everett P. Wheeler and David A,
Wells recognized the fact that we area
commission to revise the tariff laws and
not a debating Bcbool for the purpose of
discussing questions of free trade or protection;
that the fact of the appointment
of the commission is a recognition that
the people want an examination into the
subject and to see where it needs revision.
This class "want a reduction on raw material
on the ground that thus wo will increase
tho manufactures of the fcountry.
Their suggestions havo been valuable and
important to the commission. There has
been another class, who demanded absolute
free trade, which was absurd, as the
commission vns not appointed to see if it
could aboliah the whole systenj.''
"Who represented tho shipbuilding intereat?"
"No one. Ihoy are to .meet u? when we go t
JCrtBt. After leaving here we will take a run .
to Baltimore, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh j
to hear fropa the gj-ejit interests in thoso ,
quarters, and wo expect to ppnpjqde 0])r .
hearing abou? the )5th of October in Kew ,
"J)o yon espect to finish yopr WQfk ip
time for Congress to act upon your report
and recommendation this setwon, if tliev
really want to act on the tariff question?" 1
"Ob. yes. "We shall submit our final ro- 1
port, if not before the beginning of the r.
seEBion, certainly before the holidays. At ]
ppr sitting in St. Louis Gov. Coleman came '
before the commission and said lie was j
bajckc4 by I2i)0p^? frflj101?; ant* ^ey. i
we^e all unit'ed in tlie interest af free ttydo. i
ftoop o/tjej: Uiis statexpeut was made a gep- .
tlemnu hi the audience stepped up to me
I pml said; \Ur. -t do yPtt suppose J
could say a word on that point?1 ' I salt), i
'Certainly.' know something about
farming/ he continued, 'as I happen to be
lj?0 MjWjer Pf the State Grange 0( WWH
ri, and also the Lecturer of the National
Grange of the United States, and I think
I know something of tlio views
of the farmers. on this question.
I was interested and greatly
surprised to hear tho remarks of Gov. |
Coleuian about so many millions of farmerd I
being united for free trade. Wo havo a
good many farmers who are freo trade men, I
and there are a good mnny who aro in fa*
vor oi a protective tariff as high as any
Pennsylvanlan desires but I think tho
great mans of them believe that the tariff
is too high on some articles, and desire a
reduction on those.'"
"What in your judgment, bo far as can
be determined now, will be the general
tenor of tho report of tho commission?" ]
"In tho IIret place, there will boa dearie#
away oI the cobwebs that ailed the
worklng'of the tariff and interfere with its
smooth working. Tho tendency will be In
the direction of a wholesome reduction in
the industries that have grown up and are
able to stand on their own feet without assistanco.
Tho rfli?rp?i?nfnliv?>a nl hmilitio
industries, liko cotton, iron, Bilk and othors,
are now conferring together, ami will present

"Will the commission make any specific
recommendations as to the various articles
in the tariff?"
"Most certainly. Tho commission will
embody in its report a draft of a law which,
in its opinion, will remove all defects in
the existing tariff, and remove all reasonable
complaint against it"
The Anlhor of the Letter Dlocovoretl at
Chicago, October 1. A New Y ork special
purports to give the inside history of the
celebrated Morey letter on the Chinese
Huestion, whoso publication carried California
against Garfield in tho last Presidential
election. The dispatch is to the
effect that John I. "Davenport has been at
work for twenty-three months in the endeavor
to tind the authorship of tho forgery;
that he finally got the whole story,
its conception and execution, together,
with the confession of the forger, and that I
he is about to publish the facts in pamphlet
form; that tho man who forged tlie document
is named II. II. Had ley, a renegade |
Republican, in the employ of the Democratic
National Committee, and that some I
leading spirits in that body were cognizant |
of and approved the forgery. Tho story
told is lo the effect that Iladley, a pro-1
fessed leader of a certain " body of
voters in New York, wmin fjniinml I
Garfield, asking an explanation and aus-j
wer to tbe Credit Mooiler chaise. .The
letter waa answered by private Secretary
Brown, enclosing the manuscript of Gen.
Garfield's speech on tho subject to his constituents
in 1873. He thus got Gaitield'B
autograph. The dispatch continues: "Hadley
is an expert penman and spent several
days studying and practicing the hand
writing auu autograph of Gen. Garfield.
Stationery stores were ransacked to find
paptr similar to that used at Mentor, Ohio,
Garfield's old home,and then JUadley wrote
the famous forgery. The envelope prepared
corresponds with that which liadley
received from Mentor and waa put
through a process to make it look soiled
and worn. When finished Kanilall, Hewitt,
and several other reputable Democrats,
were shown it, who had no doubt
of its genuineness. The dispatch concludes
with the statement that the electrotype
fac simile was offered to the Sun,
which TefuBed to publish it. It was then
taken to TtuUt and therein published. A|
special train waa chartered to convey cop-!
iea of the paper to California. It is said i
that Davenport not only has lladley's con-1

Education in West Virginia:
Progress at almost every point appears in |
this young State in 1879-80 as compared
with 1878-79, there being 3,990 more youth
of school age, 0,224 moro in the public
schools, and an increase of 1,41)0 in average j
daily attendance. Provision for these
greater numbers is found in 80 more public |
schools, 84 more school houses, $3,502 more
income for school purposes, $7,7^3 more
iisburaed, giving larger pay for teachers
on the whole, the permanent school fund
also being increased by $20,915. Jtems of
ilecreasc, comparatively slight, were two
fewer graded schools, two days less of average
scL'001 term, twenty-eight fewer male
teachers, and a somewhat smaller rating ol
school property.
When we come lo n comparison ol 1H7071
with 1S79-80, there are difliculties in
the arithmetical results at several points,
growing out of imperfection in the reports
of the former year, especially as to youth
jf schpol age: some counties then reported
such youth without distinction of white and
colored, so that the sum of these, so far as
they arc distinguished, does not make the
total ol all youth 0 to 21 years old. Comparisons
of the relative increase of the races
is hence impossible. Comparing totals
)nly, we find in the ten years an iucrease
)fi43,3<!4 in educable youth, an enrollment
llin mtltlU n-t 1- '
u u>u j'uuiiv, Dkiiuuio cjkcecuiag uy ~-,oo/
bis increase, and an average daily"attend*
ince almost equalling the whole number of
icbool age. To meet thiB innrease there
.vera reported 1,498 more school bouses, at
east 1,408 more schools, 1,600 more teach>rs,
$159,014 more of an annual Echool fund,
ind $194,089 more of permanent fund.
School property, from the increased riuin>er
fiiiu better quality of buildings, was

"The Lee "had just been overhauled and
newly painted and was on the first trip oi
the'season. She'lcft "Vicksburg yesterday
evening for New Orleans with live hundred
bales of cotton and a good list of passengers.
While opposite Point Pleasant at
2:30 o'clock a. m. sue was discovered to be
on firo and was, immediately headed for
tbo Louisiana sliorenud landed, at Yucatan'plantation,
35 milea.'bglow Yicksburg.
It is estimated that in less than five minutes
from the time the lira was discovered
the Leo was wrapped in a perfect sheet of
Haines. Second clerk Ovid Dull, who was
on watch at the time, and who riifmlnvivl
a wonderful amount b? foresight, was lirst
to give the alarm, lie passed down through
the cabin of the ill-fated steamer, knocking
in doors and waking up all on board, after
which he went up on the hurricane roof
and did the same. Here ho found his
chances of escape growing smaller by degrees.
It was impossible for him to return ,
down stairs, so letting himself down from ,
| the hurricane roof on one of the timbers
to the boiler deck, he plunged out into the
I stream and was saved.
The third clerk, Mr. John T.uckett, who 1
| was sleeping in the texus, made his escape ;
, with several slight bruises, and several of
| the cabin passengers, and deck crow were
burnt severely, out not fatally.Two
chambermaids, Ophelia Tones and ;
Martha Webb, were seen to jump from
| the starboard wheel-lieuse into tho river
after the boat was landed, but just at that
moment the wheeUhousc gave way, and 1
falling over on them the unfortunates were i
i seen 110 more.
I Mrs. Don.Searies, a'young wife with her ,
I infant son only one year of age, with the
courage aud calmness of a Spartan mother
I in the face of danger, took her baby in her ,
I urms, and throwiug a life preserver about
her person, leaped from the after-cabin ,
I into the murky water beneath. By some
I disarrangement of tho life preserver, Mrs. ,
I Searlcs was thrown upon her hack,' an
attitude in which she was rendered per
iecuy neipiesH, anil tills, together with the
shock occasioned by her heavy fall into ,
the water, caused her to lo3e her grasp
upon the child, and it passed from her ,
arms into the depths beneath. Half an
hour after the burning of the , boat, Mrs. J.
Searlea was picked up in midstream, in an
almost Insensible condition.
The majority, of those who were fortunate
enough to make shore alive were many ,
of them without hat or coat, and in several
instances were only ineagerly clad.
Mrs. Williams, who had live little children
traveling with licron route to Natchez,
with unparalleled fortitude and presence of
mind, succeeded in saving the lives of all.
In lees than ten minutes after the discovery
of the fire,' which was almost in its
incipiency, the boat was burned to the
water's edge, and sunk, and only a few
charred timbers-and on ugly hulk are all
that wob left of that magnificent lloating
palace aud champion of Western waters.
The JyCO sunk iu about twelve leet of
I water. She is a total wreck, and William

I At Hard Times, six miles below the disaster,
the J. M. White met a number of (
obarred bales of cotton floating down the
river, and further up saw a portion of the
ill-fated steamer's wheel, upon which the i
name of llobert E. Lie was still intact
When the White arrived at Yucatan there ;
was very little of the wreck vinible, and the
passengers, otlicers and crew were K'and- i
ing out on the bank. I
. The new Lee, as she was called in contra- j
distinction to the K. IS. Lee, that won the |
famous race against the Natchez, in 1S70, j
was built by the Howards, at Louisville, j
Kv. She was built from the machinery of ,
the old li. E. Lee, and like her, was re- t
markable for great speed, power, model i
and beauty; indeed she was a far handsomer i
boat than the old Leo, and inthejudg- j
ment of many steamboat men, much j
faster. She was built to carry a cargo of
1,SOO tonp, and 7,000 bales of cotton could
be easily ttored on board. She was in nil
probability the : greatest boat of her day. ,
Sho bad "been laid up during the sum- j
me: months, and was just making her- *
first trip of the business season. During >
retirement she had received a most thor- {
ouch overhauling anil repairing. Sho was ,
builtlby tbe.lamented John w. Cannon.
The Lee was valued at $187,000 when she came
out, aiid at the time'of her destruction
$00,000. She woh Insured for $50,000. :

Coi.i'M uus, September UO. Tho Ohio
crop report for August aud September bos
just been issued by the Secretary of tho
Board of Agriculture.
Secretary Chamberlain is, by appointment,
also acting as statistical agent of
Ohio, for the Department of Agriculture at
Washington. # llenco tho basis of compar?
ison of crops is: A full average crop, ami
not the crop of last year. The-estimates
made bv tho Secretary of the Ohio State
Board, for the wheat crop of 1881, made in
August, 1SS1, varied less than one-fourth
of one per cent from the Assessors' returns.
This August report shows that the wheat
crop is heavier* than the July estimate.
From the estimates of last year and this,
made by the several Agricultural Boards
of tho States, we give tne following as the
wheat yields for two years:
iasi. I68i
Illinois. - 22,0CO,W)O 62,?juu,u00

Though we havo in all probability a
wheat crop equal to any in the history of
tho country, there are several reasons why
No. 1 and ii Ohio wheat will not long remain
below $1 per bushel.
First. The history of tho past shows that
this seldom occura in Ohio, b'ecoud. Old
wheat is sold off closer than for years.
ueuee, our total supply ol old and new is
not so groat. Third. The war-cloud in the
old world is increasing. Fourth. Jieports
of rainy harvest weather and damage to
crops in England .are not contradicted.
Fifth. Our steady increase of population
and of export sales will, doubtless, require
aur entire surplus at /air prices. Sixth.
The probable shortage of the corn and
apple crops. Seventh. The fact that SI
per bushel is below the price comparatively
of other articles of human consumption.
Eighth. The crop of wheat in Russia is not
so large as last year.
The tabulated analysis of fertilizers given
in this report afford farmers means of telling
the value of fertilizers on the market.
The farmer who has more faith in the
statements of the interested dealer than
in these tables, will pay for more than be
gets. The fault will bo his and not that of
the Board.
Inspection of tlie tables does not show
that the counties using the most fertilizers
produce the highest averages. The average
of wheat is JG.4 bushels for SI Si', and
tor 18S1 is was 1!?.!). Summit had the highest
average, 10.8, in 1SSI, against 41.5 ia
18S2. Huron hasj this year -13.9, while
Lawrence has 5.4,

There are 101,927 dogs which killed and

lakes one sheep for every three dogs to
keep up the mutton supply,which cost the
farmers $102,511 in the year 1881. So
