Thero is no reason ^ why tliceo persons and very many of the I waiu kind may not be induced to avail ? themselves of the great advantages of- a fared by West Virginia. West Virginians must lirat make the v effort and rnako it with a will. Since J there is no tftate authority to undertake o the tack tfco people of West Virginia must 1 undertake and carry it forward for them- e selves. The State may thns be indnced Jj to take it ap later with the echeme well s aUrl.' l and bearing fruit. To such a gathering and for such a t pnrpose should bo specially invited the j] Governor of the Commonwealth; the o delegation in Congress, which has in its ? power to do much to forward the pro- * ject; everybody who can say anything, vrite anything or do anything to con?L..i. ?>? <1 In i>!nm At )ait urn UtUlilC IU IUU VUU *u Tisni " ? .. - j( mast acquaint tho world with the mar- ii relous resources of West Virginia; let it be knovrn that we welcome newcomers and are ready to offer them homes at remarkably low coal. The proceedings of the convention will of coarse bo published, briefly, perhaps, bat certainly widely, in the press of the country, and this means a great deal of good advertising very cheap. We can do jut what other States and Territories hive done and with as good results if we go about it in the right way. Whon tho Intklliubkckr advanced the euggeation it was not aware that in the .State oi Arkansas a similar movement vu on foot. On Tuesday a convention was held at Little Rock at which 400 men were present, and they effected a permanent organization for business. If the men ot Arkansas think thoy have something to build on, how much more the men of West Virginio, a State surpassed by none in natural resources. I Now is tho time.

He said ha t^e jflered this reaolntion for.several reasons: q0( jne, that the feeling was now general that Bh( i time had arrived when something might bu| 3e accomplished in the direction indicated *75 ay the resolution. Some immigrants are 1 ureauy coming in, inuagu uut as ism no jqu ;hey ought to. Any other 8tate or Terr!- jia, tory having auch advantages m Weat Vir- the jinia would be continually blowing her [>a| irumpet. of It might be asked, has Whealin* a ape* Rt; cial intereat in anch a movement?

In Canada, jja where the apeaker happena to know aome* flQ, thing of the feeling, especially among the lumbermen, there waa a disposition to Bt0 seek new homes. In the blizzud*swapt n< northwest there wu * disposition to tarn ma one* more towards the rising eon. These ; were a dais of people to whom Weet Vii- He ginia could offer special attractions.

Pittsburgh, Pa., Fab. 1.?The Tim thi> morning containa five columns coo cerni jg the Hatfiald-McOoy feud in Logu county, West Virainla, and'Pike count; Kentucky?written by Charles 8. Howell a member of the staff of the paper, wh< has apent some time at the seat of wa gathering the facta upon which tho lette la baaed. The correspondence ia of i moet interesting and thrilling nature ani purports to be the first true statement o the affair wnich has yet appeared. Th< correspondent says that twenty lives hav< been sacrificed in the foud, and that wo men and children wore not spared. H< alleges that the Hatfisld-McCoy troubles meager reports of which have been cur rent for a month, have been threatening for several days to develop into ssriotu interstate complications. Governor Buck ner, of Kentucky, and Governor Wilson of West Virginia, have had portion! ol the troopa of tbelr respective States available for operations on the banks of the Tag river, ostensibly to take care of the interests of thesn "Sovereign 8tates." Th? soldiers, according to last reports, have been ordered back to their Homes, bul that fa no indication that the troubles arc ended. The Hatfield'McCoy war, divested ol the coloring with which assiduous correspondents have clothed it, and of all the sentiment with which the representative* of the two States have invested it, is simply a succession of cowardly murders by day and assassinations and house-burninge by night All of the murders have been cruel, heartless and almost without the shadow of provocation. Given, on the one hand, a family with its contingents of tho same blood, allied nod cemented by a common deeiro to avenge an imaginary affront, and on the other another family, small in the matter of alliance and collateral sympathies, doomed to destruction by the larger one, and the case is stated. intkbk8tinq conclusions. Several columns tl "history" relating to tho feud follow, based upon information derived from reputable sources, and the details of all the murders and outrage! ? .....t ,/ ..m. ?/ ik. .J-I MUU ICtOUl Ul DU1UB Ml U1D >IBIUU1' pants are given minutely. Nearly all these facta have already been published in a fragmentary way and the correspondent's report confirms them in detail. The most important developments in the correspondence, are at its conclusion as follows: TUB CROWNING NICE Of DEVILTRY in connection with the feud was reserved for the night of January 1, 1888, when thirteen of the Hatfield gang, headed by James Vance, surrounded the Paul McOoy homestead, near tho mouth of Fond Greek, burned the honso with its contents, killed the son and daughter, beBt the mother over the head with the butt of a gun till they thought she was dead, and left the little children to die in the cold on the mountain side among the bushes, to which they had escaped in thoir nighl clothes. While the house waa burning the father and husband fired two shot* with tellingleffect. Three new-made graves are to be found in the Hatfield settlement, and a number of the gang aro known to bo wounded. After burying the dead, McCoy removed Lis family to Pike Court House last week, The story was obtained principally from Mr. and Mrs. McCoy, wfto show unmistakable evidences of the intensity of theii sufferings, and is rULLY CORROBORATED by others. No one knows why the fiend' ish malignity should have been kept up But once has McCoy attempted to retail ate. That waa a few days ago. Even now no feeling of resentment is manifest. Hi spoke like a man who had been bent And almost broken by the weight of his a mictions and grief. "T nnpil in he on verv friamllv tarmp with the Hatflelds before and after the war. We never had any trouble till six years ago," he continuod. "I hope no more of us will have to die. I'll be glad when it's all over." The killing of Calvin and Alfara on the night of January lot became known the next day at the County Court houae. Measures were taken at once to capture 01 kill a portion of the Hattields. Twenty or thirty men under Deputy 8heriff Traai Phillips crowed the Tug near Fond Creek, in Pike county, Kentucky, on January ti. Within thirty yards of tbe houae Mrs, Vance hailed Phillips with "Who are you and where are you going?" ''Who are you aud where are you going?" was his rejoinder. "I think they are after you, pap," shrieked the bold woman, and a moment latei Old Vance arose from his concealment behind her. During the shooting whicb followed Vance was killed. On tbe night of January 9, Phillips and posse arrested Valentine Hatfield, throe M&yborn brothers, Tom Chambers and Kew Yancey, Selkirk McCoy and Mosei Christian. Others of the Hatlields were captured in McDowell county, West Va., about the same timo, and landed in Pike county jail. On January 10, Sheriff Phillips and posse charged old "Ance" and companions, and all fled except Jim Dunpany, who was killed by Jim McCoy, an uncle of Kandall McCoy. Mr. Howell then proceeds with his narrative as follows: THB PRISONERS IN JAIL. I saw all of the prisoners thia mornlnf in the Pike jail. They are all conflnod ir two small cells. Tho jail is a small one but it is as well built as any in the conn try and all appliances for tbe dstention o nriinnara am an annH TKn !>, ?. ? >> b>?>m (iiinutioto ?i? good types of their locality.

We are not bothering you and neither are the Hatflelds, and as long as you keep your hands off Logan county men, we will not do auything, but if you don't keep your hands off our men there is not one of you that will bo left in* six months.

The conduct of Governor Wilson, of West Virginia, in the matter all through bee, the correspondent alleges, been 1 strange. Ho has had the requisitions 1 from Governor Buckner sinco last September, but has refused to issue warrants for ' the apprehension of the men named in the demand. Logan, McDowell, Wayne ' and other counties abutting on the Ken' tucky and Old Virginia State lines are all | Democratic. The Hatfieldo are Democrats, and easily nway Logan and McDowell counties. John B. Floyd, of the ! State Department at Charleston, is an attor' noyfortheHatfields. A United StattsSena tor is to be elected next year and Governor Wilson is a candidate to succeed Senator Kenna. The State is close and will be ' eloser. The ordering out of the troops was not a I sincere move on the part of Governor Wilson. It wrs a mistake on his part. ' He knows that troops could do no good in the mountain passes of LogaD, or in the ' deiiloa of the hills and mountains, or in tue narrow bottoms of the Tag and its influent creeks. Special detectives must do the work. Governor Backner's ignorance of the country mus* also be co-equal with Governor Wilson's insincerity in the matter, or he would not have issued his call. Patient detective work is the only r solution and none of the fakirs of * Charleston, Fairmont, and other West L Virginia towns should be emDloved. Twenty or twenty-tive trained men would arreat the suspected puraona without > noise or comment and land them in their | proper prisons. I THE GANC1H AND THKIR DIFFKHBNCKH. i There is a gaog in Weat Virginia banded together for the purpose of murder and | rapine. There is a gang in Kentucky , whoae cohesive principle is the protection of familiea and homes of men and women. An unresisting family has been deprived : of live of its members, a father and mother , of five of their children, their homes bnrned, their effects sent up in smoke, . their little substance scattered to the wind, themselves forced out at midnight as wanderers on the bloak and inhospita ble mountain side, almost naked in the blasts of winter. A mother stands by and eeea her eon killed before her very eyes ' without being allowed to speak to him. Farms are destroyed, religious mee'.inga l are broken up, mon and women whipped. State and county elections interfered with i and terror holds complete sway. To rei press the gang that has committed all I these crimes was the Kentucky gan.g or5 ganizdd.

Htui ?( ?<PWM' 1 UUtii Over the Proposition to Bohr th* } Matter to tho InUr-Stnt* Commerce Com minion?Tb? Final Action* Washington, D. 0., Feb. 1.?In the House to-day, the morning hoar having ex pired, the House proceeded, in accordance with a previous ordor, to the consideration of the report of the Committee on Commerce relative to the propoeed investigation of the Beading strike. Mr. Oiardy, of Missouri, Chairman of the Committee on Commerce, said that after a careful examination of the matter, the mijority of the committee had been satisfied that the original resolution offered by Mr. Anderson, of Kansas, demanding Congressional investigation, ought not to be adoptecL He briefly sketched the origin of the railroad strike and the subsequent strike by the employes of the Philadelphia & Reading Coal and Iron Company, whose stock, he said, was held mainly by the stockholders of the Reading Company. There had been no testimony before the committee showing that inter-state traflic had been interfered with on the Reading road a week or an hour, with the exception of a brief interruption at Port Richmond, on account of the refusal of the men to obey the lawful orders | of the superintendent. On the contrary, he thought it appeared affirmatively that thero had b?en no sort of intercourse with or interruption of Inter 8tate Commerce. It had been stated that the Reading Com-1 f>any, in making Allotments of cars to minng companies discriminated in favor of some companies and against others. This was a matter which was entirely within the jurisdiction of the Inter State Commission. Any person who was aggrieved could secure an audience by knocking at the door of that commission. It was also stated that the Reading Company and the Philadelphia Coal and Iron Company were practically one and the same, and this was in violation of the Constitution of Pennsylvania. If this were true, the remedy waa to be found in the State courto of Pennsylvania. Mr. Raynor, of Maryland, did not believe in hall-way measures on thia subject, when monopoly ia combined to drive the raikks of labor to the starvation point; that labor bad an equal right by every natural law of justice to Combine and strike for living wages. He said thia not in the spirit of demagogiam, for he had neither the arte or aspirations of demogogism, but because he believod it to be a living truth. (Applause.) He was the mortal foe of violence in all its forms, bat he was the friend of labor, and ita sovereign power should be exerted in every peaceful way to assert and vindicate ita rights. The Beading road had broken and violated a solemn compact it had made with its employes, and now it commanded them to eurrender under threat of proclaiming to the American peonle that the great tributary of Commerce should be cloeed, and that not a ton of traffic should be freighted over ita road. 8hould thia be done, he, for one, said never. Congress had the power, beyond that which belonged to the Interstate Commerce Commission, to brinrf thia great monopoly to bay. The Heading Company bad incorporated a legal fiction known aa the Philadelphia & Reading Coal and Iron Company, officered by the same officers, controlled bv the aame agent* aa the Heading Railroad Company, and nnder the mask of this legal fiction the railroad company was now violating the constitutional provision of this State that chartered and created it. Mr. Groavenor, of Ohio, inquired why, if the railroad company waa chartered under the laws of Pennsylvania and had deviated from the business authorized by ita charter proceeding*! in tho nature of quo warranto conld no'. te instituted against it in the State courts. Mr. Raynor (sarcastically)?Tho courts of Pennsylvania aro in the habit of granting write nf quo warranto. Mr. O'Neil, of Pennsylvania, declared vehemently that the first complaint on quo warranto *ver heard in a State had Kaon Vim9A in tKu cniirlo nf Puniiralpanla Mr. Kaynor, continuing, quoted from the argument made by Mr. Uowon, counsel for the Reading Railroad, beford the Supreme Court in the case of the Stato of Pennsylvania against the Reading Railroad, in which ho took the ground that the State had no right to tax its freight, and that Congress alone conld regulate ita commerce. Now, said Mr. Raynor, when Congress was seeking to investigate its traffic the company said that Congress had not that power because it was a State corporation. Mr. O'Neill, of Pennsylvania?Docs the gentloman know that any of theso corporations aro seeking to prevent this investigation? Mr. Raynor?Yes, sir; we have the evidence here of 82,000 starving men, turned out in the dead of winter with dependent families. (Applause). Mr. O'Neill?I did not ask as to that; I asked whether you know that the Reading Railroad Company and the Philadelphia Coal and Iron Company are seeking to prevent this investigation. I say, for one, they are not. Mr. Raynor?Then why not allow the investigation? Why not adopt the resolution.? Mr. O'Nflill?Wfl will arinnt it. (An plmnae). ' Ur. Kftynor?If joq vlll adopt it I am done. (Load and long continued calla of "Vote I votel" Mr. 1??jrnor: I wish to add but a wo rd. , This reference to the Inter-State Commerce Commission amounts to nothing. You might as veil refer it to the Chinese Embassy or to the Public Printer; you will get it back jnst aa aoon. (Loud laugh1 ter and applause.) What is the use of i knocking at the door of the Inter-State , Commerce Commission? It never takes [ up a case mere mota. Yon do not direct . it to do anything; you merely request . it. By the time it investigates the qnesr tiou the men will have all alarved to . death. Let ns track the snbjsct to tho . fountain head, and let us discover, as I i believa we will, that this is conspiracy of 1 capital and not of labor; and let us apply t tho most heroic remedies legislation cm j devise to break op theae infernal systems j which, nnder the name of trusts, are shadowing the proeperoua homes and . bnalneae centres of the country. 1 Ur. Davis, of HMsachnaetts, advocated g toe report 01 me majority 01 ine commit1 tee, believing that Congress wu too mnch of political body to properly investigate * partly business matter, and bscaoae he did not bellevo that investigation by a Congressional Committee would be pro. ' dnctivo of any good results. To strength' ' en this assertion, he instanced what he 1 termed the failure of the Missouri Pacific o Investigation Committee to produce an; e good reaolta or retch any conclusion. ,t Mr, Burnts, of Miaaonri, reminded the t gentleman that within twenty-four hourt !, after the arrival of their committee in St Louis peace had been restored and corn merce had been resumed. [Applause J Soma dlacuaaion then enaned aa to tni q proper form ol the reaolation, in the . coarse of which Mr. Randall said that tb( controvtny between tht railroad companj ft and ita employee wu bat one branch o e the inveatigation. The moat lmportan y branch waa that relative to the controvert] t- existing between the coal combination: ta and the miners. In hia judgment th< 1- mlntrt case wu a vast deal stronger thai wu that ot the employee! ?< the railroad and he, therefore, suRg^ted an Amend* ment extending the investigation into the existing difference*! m the L?high and Schuylkill coal region between the mining corporation and the miners. Mr. Ttainey, of Michigan, thought that the House waa getting into a little confu ion aa he did not believe it had the authority to inveetipate institutions in the State of Pennsylvania. He wanted to know whether the Reading Railroad Company woe defying the law, and whether the strike was not a lockout forced by the 1 railroad corporation, whereby thouMnds of men were thrown out of empIoymefli,for i the purpose of raising the price of coal, i If these immense corporations, bnilt up < bv Congress. were choking the very life blood out of the nation Congress ought to ' know it ! Mr. White, of Now York, suggested an amendment extending the inquiry into i the queation as to whether there has been ( any unlawful combination of large bodies , of men to interrupt the business of the Beading Kailroad Company and to de- 1 prive it of freight destined for transport** i tion to points outside of Pennsylvania, ^ and if such combination is found to exist, the committee is directed to report what 1 legislation is necessary to prevent and I punish such combination in future. 1 Mr. Orutnm?I don't object to that. I ? want a broad investigation. ' Mr. Anderson, ot Kansas?I do; there t is teo much Wall street about it. After some delay the various proposi- a tions were consolidated into the following t resolution, which was adopted without c division: f Reacted, That a special committee of \ five members be appointed to investigkte t forthwith the extent, ciusss and etfect e upon the inter-State commerce of the con- l tinned failure by the Reading Railroad Company to transport such commerce and s to report to the lionse, by bill or other* o wise, for consideration at any time such a legislation as is necessary to secure tho i: public the regular and complete cxecu- * tion by a railroad company of its obliga- 1> tions to serve as a common carrier of inter* s state commerce; and to investigate the differences existing in the Lehigh and lj Schuylkill region of Pennsylvania betwoen the corporations mining coal and the o miners; and further, to investigate all b facts relating to mining corporations, n and individual miners of anthracite a coal in connection therewith; and l report the eame to the Hou*e with arch u recommendations as the committee may t agree apon. fi The House then adjourned. h Mr. Oox, tho Speaker, pro t*m, Btatea J that the committee will probably be ap- b pointed by Mr. Carlisle, bnt that ho will e confer with that gentleman this ovening g for the purpose of learning his wishes. n The Cameron PoitinMter Selected.

Dublin, Feb. 1.?The Freeinan't Journal demands tuat tue government ana toe police use the same vigilance to unearth the men who murdered farmer Fitzmaurice, near Tralee, County Kerry, aa they exert against prieata and membera of Parliament who venture to make speeches. If the asaaasins are permitted to escape, it Bays, the fact will be eatabliahed beyond yea or nay that the powera of government are need, not for the detection and punishmeut of crime, but for the ex action of tax rents. The police know every man in Tralee and there will bo nothing to excuse their failure to arrest tho murderers. The J'reu (Conservative) aaya that Fifzmaurice had been denounced aa a land-grabber and that this charge furnished the motivo for hia murder. The U8era of each language, it saye, ought to be indicted as acceaaoriea to the crimo. The murder ia the direct and natnral result of the National Laague'a teaching and inflaence. Tlira'i Statement Alarm# Europe. London, Feb. 1.?There ia a pretty general agreement that Herr Tiaza'a declaration to the Lower House of the Hungarian Diet ia more warlike than peaceful. The Hungarian Prime-Minister ia at Paris to contradict various warlike rumors, and profecaes himself aincorely desirous of peace. What alarma Europe is hia blunt statement about tho atead v displacement of Russian troops toward tho western frontier, and the equally blunt and somewhat atern declaration that Austria-Hungary had taken and would continue to take all necessary measarea for her own security and for the effective uae of her own army. HerrTiizi is not a first rate figure among Earopean statesmen, but it ia certain that no auoh language aa thia would be used without the fall concurrence of Count Kalnoky.
