Mk.Samuki. P. McCoumick seems deU
mined to collect internal revenue. 1
lias felt this way about it before. No
why is it that he always feels it necessa
to approach the place under cover? Ci
it be that he fears West Virginia Kepu

Histoiiy will say of President Artln
that even in the last days of his admini;
tration he endeavored to pay his politic)
debts. In West Virginia he had nomoi
active and zealous friend than Samuel 1
McCormick, of Grafton. Mr. MeCormie
very much desired the President's nom
nation at Chicago. Though he waged
hopeless battle he joined with othc
gentlemen who desired the same end an
strove to get Maine out of the way an
put Arthur in the lead. In the Martini
burg convention he came to the front i
the Arthur interestand went down wit
ttie Arthur guard, overwhelmed by tli
popular tide.
It will be remembered that before tli
campaign had opened there was a movi
meut on foot to make Mr. McCormick Co
lector of Internal lie venue. Theprote
was so deep and loud that the project wi
abandoned, and when the two West Vi
ginia districts were consolidated tli
tumult was quieted by the reappointmei
of General Duval. Then camo the eil'o
of the Commissioner of Internal Bevent
to force General Duval into the Arthi
phalanx, followed by General Duval
assertion of his independence and that I
his resignation. This resignation is no
accepted on the eve of President Arthur
retirement, and seemingly for no othi
purpose tlmn to give a faithful henclmui
a job.
There can lie no pretense that this aj
pointment is made to please. West Vi
ginia Republicans or to benefit the R
publican party in West Virginia. If
vote of the party had been taken tl
choice would not have fallen on Mr. M
Corniick. He is appointed in payment
personal services rendered or sought i
be rendered. The appointment takes i
higher form.
It has been understood that Gener
Duval was willing to await the appoin
ment of his successor by President Clev
land. If so there was no urgency in tl
matter, and it would have been mo
seemly to leave the vacancy for the ii
coming President to fill. It may be th

New York, Jan. 0.?At a la to hour thii

to located tho olflce of O'Donovan ltossa and
tho United Irishman. In a few secondt
,r. afterward a man covered with blood totl0
tered down stairs to tho hallway and Hani
lW on the front stoop, while his blood covered
rv the sidewalk in streams. The most intJj
tenso excitement ensued, and a large
crowd flocked to the scene. Several ofiicers
rushed up, and seeing a few men

Dr Hall, followed them. One of them, a
?L. tall-man, was captured and brought back
to where the dying man was lying.
8" "Is this the man who stabbed you?"
I' asked the officer.
st "Yes, that is the man," said the bleedttt
ingman; "hut, by heavens! if I'm going
to die. 111 die game and there will be two
of us!"
With that, and beforo the bystanders
n* could realize his intention, he drew a rely
volvcr and fired two shots in quick succesjo
feiou at the man standing before him. One
, of the balls took effect in the thigh of his
would be murderer. This still further inc'
creased the excitement and the neighborig
hood became wild with all sorts of rumors.
lt The man who was stabbed proved to be
Capt. Thomas Phelan, of Kansas City,
aged 45, and his assailant, who he says
i- stabbed him, gave his name as Kichard
>e Short, of 801 Tenth avenue.
An ambulance was summoned and Phelan
taken to the ChamUbre street hospital,
in a dying condition. Ho is stabbed in
the neck and breast, and several other
s* places.
e There were rumors that he gavo away
?, some sccrets of the Fenian organization,
i. A printer named Schmidt, who has a
. composing room on the same floor as
Kossa's room, says: "I was at my work.

>r with tho upsetting of a table, followed by
, loud and angry words and, curses. This
continued for some seconds,- when some"
thing heavy was thrown against the wall.
5- A man cried out something that sounded
,, like hel]>! but I am not sure whether
. that was the word or not. Then the door
was banged open and four men ran down
16 stain*, each trying to push the other out
of his way. Blood was trickling
,e down tlio face of tho las? man. They were
, hall down the Hairs when the mail with
" the blood trickling down his face got the
?- lead of the others, I then ran to and
st opened the window of our ollice, which
l8 looks out on Chambers street. Then 1
saw the man with the blood on his face
r" fall on the sidewalk, put his hand to bis
it-' hip pocket, pull out a revolver and firo at
it one of the three men, which one I cannot
tell, aa I did not get a good look at him.
I think he must have beef} phot, because
lu he pulled up his coat, placed his hand to
ir his breast and stepped forward as if going
's to fall."
w "Did you see 0'Donovan ltossa among
?H the four men ?" Mr. Schmidt was asked.
,r "I can't say that I did."
in The police claim to liavo a letter from
Kosaa to the wounded man, telling him to
0. come on to New York to his ofllce; that he
^ had important, business for him. Phelan
r* was asked by Fireman Cottrell if he wants'
ed a minister or priest. "No," lie replied;
n "I don't want anybody, I Uon't believe in
10 any religion. Jam a follower of Bob Ingeraoll."
c* News of the stabbing and shooting
of spread rapidly and inquiries were made
to on all sides as to who l'helan and Short
l0 were. Phclan appeared to bo known to
many men identified with several Irish
revolutionary societies.

Which will swoop down upon Wheeling Monday next
IT MEANS that we are to have a surplus of thirty-five
lousand dollars' worth of choice Dkv Goods, Carpets, Notions
id Millinery Goods which our large and extended business
ill not permit us to carry from season to season, and which
ust be sold inside of thirty days, no matter how much we are
impelled to lose.
IT MEANS that to sell this amount the very life must be
it Irom the prices and values annihilated.
IT MEANS we must actually yive two dollars' worth of
jods for one dollar in cash.
IT MEANS we must fill Wheeling with wonderful bargains
id charge to profit and loss.
It requires an unusual nerve to face as severe a loss as such
slaughter of prices inevitably brings. Hut we would rather
ventory the money than the goods, and we are certain our cusmers
will be made better with the goods at the sacrifice than
e money. We will "screw our courage to the sticking point,"
iffer the loss, and give our customers the gain.

With the average merchant the old stereotyped "Clearance

. But with the RED TICKETS bearing the reduced price
laced beside the original ticket with the original price, both
larked in PLAIN FIGURES, customers are enabled at a dance
i discover the reduction made and are also assured of our deirmination
to stand by our advertisement no matter how much
md every day during the continuance of this sale our stores
ill be "Painted Red" with tickets displaying the Lowest Prices

10 valuable to squander in an attempt to give prices or to state
jw low they have been made; besides, the town has been
