Ho could not Uvc been ""aware ol this misgiving. )|r. tiuoil is " gentleman ol too much intrllinraM lor that. Why was not tiio im J:,. I.,m' iiL'ri removed? As we have Kiiil, it wan not for luck of abundant opportunity. If Mr. liood failed to improve liis om-ortnnity it muHt have been because hcilid not choose to embrace it. This tni^iving in regard to Mr. Good pew out, in larye part, of the fact that he was amt'inlHT ?f the famous committee at Cincinnati to which was turned the duty of roiwlrnctinj? n platform for the Democratic party in 1S80. That committee related the well-known declaration in favor o( "a tariir fur revenue only." Mr. Good t.j|ilaiti3 tli'w by Haying that this was the mirk n! n nib-committee of his committee. ami that the Hub-committee never reported to the (nil committee, and hence he was not aware of what report had been agreed ujioti until lie saw it in print next day after the convention. Knowing as we do how much ?>f the work of political conventions U.lone in this cut and dried way, we are not inclined to impugn his statement. It his been understood that the tariff plunk ?t Cincinnati was the work of David A. Wells and Henry Watteraou, two noted anti-tariirmen, although Mr. Good's statement is new that the plunk, when inanuficttireil. w:u never submitted to the committee who were called upon to father it .v their own. It certainly went out to the world with the endorsement of that committee, and without a minority report or dissent of any kind. And more than tliL*, ail through the campaign that followed, we never heard of Mr. Good, in all 1?is fpeeehes for Hancock,, taking any exception to the platform on which lie stood ?'us thejeaodidate of the lieinociiitie party. This is an explanation iu part of the miygiving that has arisen in regard to Mr. Iilliul'ri Itmitinn nil tlm lurid* Piirlnlnli' then his political opponents are not responsible foriiny impression derived from this slate ol facta hostile to Mr. Good's soundness on tlie txvrill*. Jiut more than this, the Convention that nominuted Mr. Good at Weston purposely refrained from makiiuany declaration whatever on the tarilJ'. Why did it do so? It must havo had some reason fur deliberately avoiding so prominent a question. We say lUliberutely avoiding it, for the notorious reason that the committee appointed by that convention to draft a platform of principles deliberated for hours on this veiy question, and at the end, and almost at the very close of a very long day, , i ? . . nr. ciiumcnuu ii. >vny uiu u auier tliw /ojijt and most deliberate consideralion and discussion of this most prominent fliwtion, deliberately strangle it? To ask this question is to answer it. TUo reason u apparent to the most unsophisticated uiiml. -Again, IMr. Good made a speech at that Wwiioncoiivcntion. He liail an opportunity, il he desired one, to nay something on this subject. Did he do so? There is no bint of any remarks from him on this subject. Why was it thus passed by by j tlie convention and its candidate? Eclipj | aslunvby. And tho public ask why. Now we submit in view of this plain I statement of facts whether Mr, Good has any just grounds of complaint against any body but himself and his own political j frit-mis for his mistrusted position on tne torill' question. Does not the case strikingly aiul most forcibly call to mind the follow-1 inclines: "Tills irutli, my licjje, I've ever found, Aiul vkiii your niynl khwmtni ^should, i U! nil Uiu mutt wlUUu your umpire's bound, Mark Uiom; not umlen>toori." Mr. Uood may claim that his position Mumld now be understood. We arc will* iiii; that lie shall have the benefit of his Mteutems .Saturday night. The report of them will be found in our local columns. We are not willing, however, that he shall complain of being misrepresented by this paper :is to his position in the past.

C., October 7.?I dropped into the Pension oilice the other day and inquired as to tho pensioners in "West Virginia. There hits been so much talk about pension /ratulsaml pension steals that I thought it would be of interest to the people of the State to know how many of them participated in the '.'grah," so-called by Democrats, and how much money they received. This is a matter, too, of general I interest, lor the average pensioner is notu i capitalist enabled to hoard his earnings, a and in consequence this money imtne- 1 dintely finds its way into the channels of \ trade. In this manner the business'man c id benefitted; and, indeed, communities r also !profit by Undo Sam's pension c money. Hut as to the statistics, f In the State of West Virginia there * are 2,092 people receiving pensions from ^ the United States. The annual value is 7 $120,212, and the annual payment, together ( with arrears, is $-180,313 The First Con- 1 gressional District luis the largest number, 1 3,377, and they receive yearly $147,2S4, 5 and the annual payment, with arrears, is 1 $220,920. The Third District comes next with SIS, receiving $87,572; with arrears, ; $131,35S. In the Second district there are ' 707,drawing$85,350; with arrears,$128,034. [ When we come to counties, the largest ? number live in Wood county, where 240 j are found. They receive $20,024, and with J arrears,$30,300. Next comes Alason county ? with 157, drawing $10,832; with arrears, ? $25,248. Ohio county has 170, receiving ? $15,080; with arrears, $22,535. The county i having the least number of pensioners is Wyoming, where only one is residing. He ^ draws the regular eight dollars a month. S lioone county only has four, and Clay has t a similar number. * In Pennsylvania, Greene county has f 225. receiving $54,130, with arrears $45,S50; v and Washington county 305, paid $32,001, 1 with arrears $02,002. IJelmont county, in Ohio, has 320, draw- ? ing $32,320, with arrears $01,08; Jefferson i county, 240, receiving?25,084, with arrears I $4S,S(H); and Monroe county 203, paid $2S,- y 143, with arrears $53,581. i: l'rom the above you can see that a con- v siileniblo sum 01 pension money is paid v out to West Virginians and in the counties r adjoining Wheeling. Jt is not very far oil* v I to say that they do not look upon pension i payments as frauds upon (he government. i 'i'ho West Virginia Republican Assoeia- F tion, composed of clerks in the depart- a meats, have committees at work looking c up all residents of the State, with a view of v having them go homo to vote at the com- a ing election. u ?

Wurd, of thiu city, were irrested ut tho instance o[ the Secretary ol he Treasury lute last night and committed 0 jail, upon a charge of being engaged in 1 conspiracy to steal bonds and plates from heUurttiHof Engraving and Printing and ittcmptingto biibo tho employes of that iuruau to assist them therein. The facts of he case are: At tho time of tho shooting if tho lato President Gai field and or some weeks thereafter, Colonel rial), chief of tho IJureuu of Sngruving and Printing wrote to a member if hislamily spending the summer in O.ikuud, Md., a series of lotters largely deoted to the topic which was then uppermost in all minds? tlio attempt to ussassiuito tho President. In these letters ho exireased with the freedom of domestic cores pondence his views from timo to time rith regard to tho causes and consequents of that public calamity. When his umily left Oakland these letters, together vith a largo collection of newspapers conaining articles relating to theassassinatiou, vere boxed up and sent to Washington and )laced for safekeeping at tho end of Col. rish's desk in his private oflice, where hey remained untouched by him for eight uonths or moro. Some time last spring Jol. Irish discovered these letters had been tolen and he was warned by anonymous cort appears that the object of the conspirators espondonts, they were being used or were o be used to the injury of tho friendly elations then existing between himelf and President Arthur. While en;aycd in the investigation with a view o ascertaining how and by whom he letters were purloined Col. Irish nine upon clues which led to tho discoviry of a conspiracy with which the tbelt of ho letter was connected to corrupt and tribe tho einployesof the bureau, and with heir aid to steal therefrom a quantity of ?onds and plates. Col. Irisu laid the acts before Secretary Folger, who, after a preliminary investigation, became satisfied hat a persistent attempt to get bonds and dates from tho bureau surrentiously vns being made. He turned over he evidence already obtained to the secret ervice division and directed the matter to ie sifted to the bottom. Special Detective Jrummoud, from New York, was assigned o the duty ot following up the clues and le began the investigation which ended ast night in the arrest of Salter and Wurd. u endeavoring to get the bonds and plates rom the bureau was not in the direction if pecuniary gain, since they had no inention of using them in conntefeirting. Their aim rather, as stated by themlelves, was to bring about the removal of he present chief of the Bureau by causing t to appear that his management was so ocsc and inefficient as to make the theft if the bonds and plates comparatively an asy matter, and bo careless as to destroy mblic confidence in the integrity of the government securities. The theft of Col. Irish's letters from his oKico is supposed to lave been part of the Fume plan ?alter, it is said, represented to the dissatisied employes of the bureau, whom he atempted to bribe, that he was acting in the nterestof Benjamin L. Berry, a prominent lolitician of Pennsylvania; also that Berry vas supported by Senator Cameron and the 'enii6.vlvania delegation as a candidate for Colonel Irish's position. Uurrv, it was also :laimed, would certainly get the place il he latter could be ousted. WEST VllKJIM.Y. ilotv Her Kltclioii T?-.llorrow In Viewed from Abroad. iVwhhiKloa (D. C.) Republican.

A bright future is in store for the voung ind buoyant State of West Virginia, but t will never come under Bourbon" rule or ie reached by the help of Bourbon Con* ressmen.

Wilson nt <Jrftnon-.S|ieri'li of ilio "liar* moil)" t'uuilitlnlr. S tvcinl to the lutilll ;t iicer. Guakton, October 8.?Hon. Win. F. Wilson, the Democratic candidate foi Congress in this, the Second district, spoke at Grafton yesterday afternoon anil again this evening. lie had tolerably good audiences, and while his presentation of principles was in a vaguoaud general way, his manner of address wtis mild and dispassionate, and his discourse was so evasive of fact as to render it weak, though presented with fluency, llis first position was that the panic of 1874 was caused by the Republican party, and caused the people to place tbu Congress in thti power of the Democrats, and that the Democrats at once gave us good times. In all this he showed his ignorance of the facts, or his disposition to make false impressions, aud his audience received it with due allowance. . He then attempted to contrast the Demcratic theory of government with that of the Republican, lie said the latter is that of "parental government," while tlie former is that of the "popular let alone" principle. He said that this was Jackson's theory, and he could with monj conformity to the truth have said it was JetT Davis' theory, lie said that the Republican tneory puts no distinction between the powers of the States and of the general government, which only showed how far tie was from the facts." lie even went so far as to say that the Republicans believe in Government interference in Slate elections. This was only an insult tojbe intelligence of his audience, as it is well enough known that the only Government interference iu State elections was by Buchanan in lvnn3as. That Congress has the right to regulate elections for Congress is another Question, lift ?i?id that iinilur Democratic theory Democrats can only bestow public lands for public purposes, thus denying the legitimacy ol tlie home-, stead law. On the tariff question he was any and every way. In the afternoon, when his audience was chiefly of farmers, he was opposed to a protective tariff but for such one as would yield revenue, claiming that the tarings now in existence weighs dowu on theuMtiborer amliinriclu-s the manufacturer. He said nothing of the necessity of protection to manufactures to give fair compensation to the laborer, but labored to show that it was only the interest of the manufacturer, that was advanced by it, and he declared that the Democratic party was willing to protect the manufacturer so that he could make a profit of 10 per cent. While everyone knows that under the present tariff very few make that much. In his speech in the evening, he took quite different grounds on the tariff. He tried hard to show that he was for protection. He knew that he was now speaking to mechanics and laborers, from the Grafton shops. The differerence was that he claimcd that the Republicans would by a tariff, protect certain industries to the exclusion of others, and he was in favor of protecting all alike and equally, and give good employment to labor, claiming, as lie said, to give his own words,''the laboring man should live by the sweat of liisbrow." This is good old Virginia "mudsill" This much however he would not have conceded, but the circumstances compelled it. lie was opposed to the whole Internal Revenue system, and would labor for its repeal. He said this was Democratic doctrine. lie saiu Dili utile about whisky, but enough to enable his Democratic friends to understand that he meant that, as most all the internal tax is raised on that peculiarly Democratic staple, lie made a further declaration on this subject which \vas not true, and which was given as a reason why the Democratic party is in favor of abolishing the internal revenue laws, and that was that most of the taxes from the same are raised south of Mason and Dixon's line. On this subject, he said in the evening, there are only three ways in which the Government can raise taxes. Hired, Internal add Tarty'. The first lie said was never advocated by any party, that it was impracticable, and would he "odious. The second he is in favor of abolishing, and the Democratic party had always opposed it, and hence at the close of ilia speeches he occupied tlie plain position of placing himself and the Democracy, not in favor of ''Tariff for Revenue only," but for a Revenue by a tariironly; and he claimed that this is the Democratic position. In his speeches?both of them, ho occupied every ground 011 the question except absolute/free trade," and ended /or a Jicvmue by a larijf only. Hiiuuivi UI IIIU wwuiv lUiau llll|irei<!ilUIlB he tried to make was that the Republicans refused iu the last Congress to reduce iuternal taxation, when every informed person ; knows that the Republicans presented a bill for abolishing the tax on matches, checks and proprietary medicines, and for reducing the tax on tobacco and cigars, and the Democrats almost unanimously voted against it,and thus defeated it. Near the close of his first speech lie took ocuwion to say, when speaking ol the doctrine of a strict construction ol tlie Constitution, and the doctrines of the illustrious dead of the Democracy, that he is in "favor of the Constitution as the fathers framed it." This expression was alone sullicient to show his extreme Jell* Davis Bourbonism. Ccnlrnl American >cwn.

Here and there off on the hills the foliage of a tree has put on the orange and the crimson'color, and the fading leaves on the trees beneat,h which we rode, reminded us of the text, "We all do fade as the leaf." Apple picking and .wheat sowing was going on vigorously. We passed an oiohard and called for some applet, and thougli we offered money*for whatever we. got,, yet they refused to take money or price., This, however, had no.oU'ect on the taste of the apples. i The Cabinet mill is grinding. What the grist will be, in some cases at hSnst. I rnn not tell. It is nettins: to be a common sight to see a preacher ami .bis presiding elder stand oil' to one side engaged in very earnest conversation. AVe know bow it is, for we have been tbero, ourselves, but not this time. SATCUDA'yV I'itOCEF.DlNGs/ The conference was opened this morning at the usual hour with religiousservices, conducted by Rev.. W. C. Snodgrass. The time.of the conference this morning is being occupiedjj>y hearing the.reports of the Presiding "Elders in the cases of young men who come up for admissiontd the traveling connectiou. Nine or ten ciindi/lates were admitted. At this juncture the question as to where the next session of the conference shall he held come up. Wheeling was put in nomination and was selected as the place ( for the next session. Both the ministerial and lay conferences will be in session at that time. The Committee on Sabbath Ob- ; servance made the following report: \V iiKKKAK, The Sabbath day was designed ' by Almighty God to be held in perpetual remembrance, and that the faithful ob- , servance of that day is absolutely essential , to the life of the church, the welfare of the ; race, the stability of the government and ( tiie perpetuity of our free institutions; therefore, i Jicsolvcd, That we observe with deep re- j gret the increase of Sabbath desecration; < by pleasure seeking, public travel nnd traftte.

London, Oclober 7.-?'Following is the thedlve's talk with a correspondent of ,ondon Timer. I t!o not for a moment beievo either in the genuineness,,extent or atriotiam of the BO-called national feeling.' 'he agitation, such as it id, is the natural esutt of the weakness of the Egyptian overnment on theono lmnd, and the sueess of the Turkish intrigues oil the other, 'au-lnlam is as old as my time and older, lit 1 would never hear of it. Ditlerentcounels havo since prevailed and we are now ice to face with the consequences. I always managed by some menus or other to ontrol and direct tho religions fervor of ?y subjects in Egypt, but when io control cmno from ConLnntinoplo and not from Cairo, religious' srvor became religious fanaticism, and the xisteuce, iulluencenud temporary success f J Arabi, became a possibility. I reicmber Arabi well, lie became a l.ieu;naut Colonel, when very younjr, and in :ie second or third year of my administnion was tried by Court-martial for breach t trust, lie should have been broked, ut one of my Generals persuaded me to ardon him, and 1 did so. He was then ansftrred to the Commissariat, and only nite recently returned to active service in 1 ic army. Arabi can be painted in a word. 1 le is what the French will a bluguer. lie 1 in talk and do nothing else. He is the >ol of Mahmoud l'ehmia and Toulba, bout both of whom I have nothing good 1 > say. Arabi is, and always was an arant coward. 1 always said lie would in away, and he certainly decamped very uickly at Tel-el-Kebir. The only brave len iu his party are AH Feb my and Adelala. These are soldiers, but 1 would efy Arabi himself to deliue either "patritism" or "nntinnnl fnptinw" M<> I ertainl/hiis neither one nor the other, ul- 1 bough "half Europe seems inclined to ' egard him na the would-be favior of his 1 ountry. The truth is that the Euvptian ' eoplemust lean on something auu follow Dineoue. The Egyptian Government was 1 opek'ES and weak, and Arabi nnu his 1 iends knew it. He and bis partisans chievcd three visible and striking sue- j esses. The Egyptians saw this, and sftw, ! loreover, tlie representatives of the great 1 'owers practically in treaty with him. ' urabi pointed triumphantly to these facts. 5 nd told the Egyptians he could and would ?store Egypt to the Egyptians, and it is ' ot surprising, in the circumstances, that le Egyptians clung to him as the stronger . essel. The movement he headed wnafrom le first actively encouragcd at Conslantiople, but it is very improbable that either ic Sultan himself or any of his rcsponsile Ministers were ever in direct comnmni- j ition either with him or his associates. 1 >irect communication is not a feature of urkish intrigue. The desired effect can 1 e produced "without it. Arabi and his i zcomplices must bo severely punished. ! n example should certainly be made of ic leaders of the revolt, and half measures 1 ill only be a premium to further disturbnees. Thev may give to Egypt a successm of Arabia. "Arabi himself should be j eated as a vulgar mutineer and rebellious j )ldier. To look upon him sis an Egyptian i aribaldi is a capital mistake, and one t hicli argues ill for the future.

This meeting was held yester- ri ly afternoon at three o'clock, and all the ri ms were represented. 0 The situation was considered in all its m rings, the representatives of the closed p tablishments reporting to tho meeting \\ 1 the occurrences incident to their stop- b ipg. and in view of thn nlinwi sponsion of all others. When tho now ale of wages was tendered it was thought tl Ivlsablc to iunito on soiue satisfactory tl isis for the purpose of meeting an issue 1 at no one thought would come. *K On January 1,1881, tho iron workers in i<3 vicinity demanded an advance;'whiclf 'fi e employers refused. Arriving at no set- y iment at the first conference, the manucturers concluded to pay nothing save t e rate paid in Pittsburgh, dooming this a C atter of vital importance to tho inter- ii ts and absolutely essential to their pros- ii irity and advancement of the iron iudus- t y in this part of the country. The work- it en refused to comply, stating that the o mditions hero would admit of no such c rangement; - A five months' strike fol- (, wed, which is fresh in the minds of all t iterested, and to the populace in general, t u the 1st of November following,' at a J meral conference held for that purpose, t io following resolution was adopted: ( "JteiQhfd,.That tho mills in Cincinnati s ad vicinity shall be hlarted at the rate | current at tho time of the stoppage, such prico to continue until the next rule in established in Pittsburgh, ami that tho said Pittsburgh rale, when established, shall bo tho rato in Ciueinnuti mills forever thereafter." . , , . j. .This agreement was signed by tho iniuutfacturera ami by a representative of every branch of labor, Work was resumed, and matters rau along smoothly until June 1. 188'J, when tkieru wasBomo inurmuringsof dissent in certain depaitments, and also objections to the wording of the Agreement* Uv request of tho workmen at tho instance ol their President, Mr. Jarrett, tho manufacturers agreed to Htriko out tho word "forever" and leave the balance of tho agreement in full force and ullect* Work was then continued in this locality, though suspended in Pittsburgh by reason of failure to reach satisfactory terms .with the manufacturers. The four month's idleness ensued, and on the "5th of* .September the old scale was adopted, tho workmen failing to secure their demands. Onthatday, by tho terms of the Cincinnati agreement, the same scale was to go intoeli'eet here, tho employes agreeing to si-emu iiivMimu nui|? ui me roiw and inrnaccs tlmt -wan cm ployed at Pittsburgh. These niutttojs werefully.considered nt the meeting yesterday, ami a unanimous conclusion was reached that it would bo the "J'HUburt/li teal? or wAhiutj" A reporter of the Viw/mW, meeting ft manufacturer returning from the meeting, inquired if the bosses were in thipo for uuother strike, to which ho responded: "They were uever in better shape. Their condition is infinitely better than on Juno 1,18S1, and having none thus far toward the establishment of that aheet this section of country 3ms a*> long needed, and which is the mainstay of their business and prosperity, thoy will never recede and," said he, "the men, if they possess much iieutehess, certainly understand that tho employers are not jesting." "They tried their mettle in Cincinnati in 18S1, and signally failed to force them to objectionably measures. Again, in Pittaburgh, they experienced the same ignominious defeat, and again in Cincinnati it will bo repeated iflhey refuse to abide by their agreement. The demands upon labor by Cincinnati manufacturers are not con iriycu in icvuy nor prosecuted in jest; neither sire the conditions imposed for ilio purpose of oppressing lliu employers. Tliey ire simply the absolute necessities o[ the Irade, itmJ must be imiuiesced in. If tlio manufacturersdesired to retinue operations 311 any other basis tlwu I'ittshuinh it would bo an net of the blindest folly which jould neither he forgettcn, forgiven nor :oiuloned. Jt would be a eandid confession lhat their battles of last vear were fought lor a sentiment, and their professions simI'ly barren idealities. Xo, it will never bo June, and the ineu laid ns well abiile by tlieir contracts gracefully, and avoid ecujure ami reproof." The reporter asked the manufacturer if ft conference would be held, to which he replied that he was unable to answer. Late yesterday one of the mill men wero interrogated, lie stated that Pittsburgh mui'iufs wouiu nave 10 ue granted before Pittsburgh wages would bo received. The Iron Association will doubtless meet shortly and arrive at some definite conclusion. l'rom the present appearances .there seems to be no doubt that there will be. a general suspension of all the mills in this district to day.
