(ioir spoke here to-day and was greeted
with one of the largest gatherings known
in the history of Morgantown. Early
in the morning the various delegations
began coming in, and by 10
o'clock tho crowd was simply immense.
The West Side delegation, by actual
count, numbered 2,SOD, and from the
other parts of the county the number
was swelled to about 0,000. At the
speaking this afternoon the crowd was
estimated at between seven and ten
thousand. Gen. Golf was escorted from
tho train by a largo delegation headed
by tho Fairmont band, and from tho
balcony of the Wallace house viewed
the procession, which took an hour to
paw a given point. Everybody was
here and all parts of the county turned
oui en masse, urn in corps, urass uaucia
and tho irrepressible tin horn
.MADE THINGS FAMILY IIOWI..
Business houses, dwelling houses,
horses and carriages wero profusely decorated,
and the whole county seemed to
be for Harrison, Morton, Goff and I'rotection.
At I :!J0 o'clock o. in. tho liepublican
students, headed by their excellent
drum corps, escorted General
Goff to the place of speaking, and they
won the admiration of the spectators by
their soldierly bearing.
Hon. George C. Sturgiss, in a neat and
short speech, introduced the speaker of
the <lay, and at the very appearance of
Golf the crowd went wild with excitement,
and deafening cheers rent the air
for at least five minutes. After thanking
the audience for the honor bestowed upon
his party by such a large and enthusiastic
demonstration, the General proceedep
to discuss the great questions of the
day. At times fie was interrupted by
applause, and held the undivided attention
of his audience throughout his
speech. The crowd became so large that
' mauy crowded upon tho platform to hear,
A portion of the platform gave way, and
many at a distance thought the speaker
had fallen with the platform, but Gen.
GofT raising'both hands, silenced their
tears and elicited
DEAFENING AI'l'LAUSE
by shouting "Golfs all right." Such enthusiasm
as was manifested here to-day
for the itcpublicau ticket must make the
Democracy of this county very sick.
Old-time Democrats who have never
been known to vote wiything else but
the Democratic ticket were occupying
prominent positions in the procession.
Monongalia is going to bo heard from in
November, ami (Soil's appearance and
masterly effort this afternoon is worth
several hundred additional votes to the
party of Protection.

FAta.MONT, W. V.\., Oct. 1).?An impromptu
meeting was gotten up here
this evening for General Gofl', who was
on his return from Morgantown. It was
announced by posters, circulated about
:?o'clock, that the General would speak
in Palatine at 7 o'clock, and the result
was most gratifying. The school house
was secured for the mooting, and it did
not hold lialt the crowd, aiinougit iib
capacity will accommodate over throe
hundred persons. The crowd outside
was about double what it was inside the
building. The Palatine Imperial baud
headed tho procession, and the crowd
was enthusiastic and jubilant. The
.General was both surprised and gratified
at tho grand reception. Ilo spoke for
about an hour to a delighted audience
and made a marked impression, lie
left on the eveniug train to til) an engagement
at Kingwood. Cheer after
i'heer for GolF went up from the admiring
throng as tho train pulled out, and
three hearty cheers were given also for
(he Hon. George M. Bowers, Kepublirau
candidate for Auditor, who was on
the train, and made his appearauce on
tho platform.
It is the opinion freely expressed 0:1
all sides that the demonstration to-night
surpassed the Kenna meeting of Friday
last, though tho latter had been advertised
for at least ten days.

G iiakton, W. Va., Oct. 0.?-Much meriment
has existed in town among the
Republicans* at tho eflorts of the Democrats
to impress the colored man with
their great love and undivided interest
in his welfare itisi at this time. The
latest move of the bosses in this direction
is the importation of one Annsteail,
a colored individual and lawyer, of Chicago,
who addressed the Cleveland and

candidate for the Vice Presidency, delivered
a speech in the Court House to
night. His audience of about .'>00 win

Alien introduced Dr. Brooks, whospokt
for over an hour ami a half. The tenoi

A HAD COmiCATlU.V
Which CouipfN a Tratlic Amoeintion to
Discontinue.
_ Chicago, Oct. i) ?A local paper says:
I "Tljo Chicago & Eastern Illinois road
withdrew from the Ohio Kiver Traffic
Association sometime ago, and the recent
withdrawal of the Big Four from
the Central Traffic Association, including
the Ohio itivcr Committee has complicated
matters so badly that it is found
useless to continue the expense of keeping
up the organization. Chairman McDoel,
of the Ohio Kiver Committee, lias
therefore called a meetingof the Chicago
and Ohio river roads to he held at Indianapolis
to-morrow for the purpose of
considering the question of discontinuing
the committee and also whether the
compiling of statistics by the secretary
shall notoedone away with. Jt is the
general impression that al! the auxiliary
committees of the Central traffic will be
gradually abolished, thus) saving a large
expense. The Central Trullio Association
proper will be kept in existence, it
is thought, only until arrangements ean
be perfected for its amalgamation with
the Trunk Line Association.

1 Special Dispatch to the InUUigenccr.
Washington, D. C., Oct. u.?Colonel
Kcrlin, chief inspector of work 011 the
new aqueduct to increase Washington'?
water supply, is very sharply criticized
on all hands for his supposed part in the
bad work that has been exposed through
the agency of enterprising reporters.
| The work is not according to contract
by a good deal in the respect that a large
j awouut of open space has been discovered
above the aqueduct masonry which
should have been filled in solidly as the
I tunnel progressed. The United States
Engineer in charge, a Mr. Lydccker, ol
the Army, is disposed to shield liimseli
from the charge of complicity in the
rascally business by representing that lie
was mislead by the inspectors, of whom
Mr. Kerlin is" chief. This Mr. Kcrlin
was inspector of masonry at Lock (I, on
the Great'Kanawha, before the beginning
of his service here, and he owes his
present employment mainly to the kind|
ness of Senator Kenna. It is now certain
that the fraudulent work could not
have been passed without the eonivance
of the Government's representatives,
and these people will noon have
the opportunity to explain to a Congressional
joint committee how it was
brought about.
?lt is considered extraordinary that the
v? ar ueparimcnt iuis aot i3u?pe?ucu no
subordinates connected with "this unsavery
business since tin; damaging disclosures
have been published. The reason
given for not doing this is that it
would be unfair to the engineer and his
associates while there is a chance of an
inquiry by Congress. A further reason
is doubtless a desire to avoid scandal before
election, but it is funny how the
Secretary of War can be inllucneed by
this consideration when the main scandal,
as far as the campaign is concerned,
consists in his failure to relieve a lot of
scamps from duty while the extent ol
their bad conduct is being investigated.
Enough is already known, in every
other way except "oilicially," to warrant
the suspension and arrest of the whole
caboodle, from the engineer down.

CHIEF JUStICE*WAlTli'S WIDOW
Kt-ftiM'ri the Pittance A*kc<l for?Tlie Debate
in the Senate.
Washington, Oet. 9.?-In the Senate
to-day the confcrence report on the Deiiciency
bill was presented and read in
full.
Mr. Edmunds inquired of Mr. Hale
way the Senate conferees had agreed to
the striking out of the provision granting
the balance of the year's salary of
Chief Justice Waite to his widow.
Mr. llalo stated that the subject had
been fully discussed over and over again,
and that the House conferees had taken
the grouud that they could not consent
to it. The House conferees had claimed
that there was no precedent for an item
of such kind being put in an appropriaLeon
bill, but hud intimated that it' a
special bill were passed by the Senate
they (the conforees)would fuvorit,
Mr. ISdmunds expressed his regret that
the House of Representatives could not
see how proper the item was and that
the suitable place for it was in an appropriation
bill. It was not a claim of
| the widow, but proceeded from a public
sense of its propriety and justice. The
faet that there was no precedent for it in
I the case of a Chief Justice was accounted
for by the fact that there was no similar
case within memory. Chief Justice
I Marshal had died without leaving a
widow; Chief Justice Taney had
died without leaving a widow, and Chief
| Justice Chase had died without leaving
a widow. Chief Justice Waite, after a
long, honorable and useful career, had
left the service, by death, leaving a
widow in such circumstances as made
it delicate and right for Cangress to
Hiaky pome suitable recognition?not
as a pension, but as a substantial
gratuity. There was only one precedent
that he know of in the case of a United
States J uilge, that was of a Judge who,
after a career not one-fourth as long as
that of the Chief Justice.died in Florida,
I.So . in l.lc At ilnH* .if ,i fliu.
ease peculiar to that blliuate?yellow
fever. Congress had given to the widow
of that Judge his whole year's salary
(not the balance of it). In this instance,
the ('hief .Justice had died at his post in
Washington of pnouwoaia?ft disease
incident to the climate, and its House of
Itcpresentatives could not find it in its
heart to make provision for his widow,
lie would try the experiment, to-day or
toriuorrow, oi introducing a special bill,
and he hoped that both houses would
pass it.
Mr. Hale remarked that all the efforts
of the Senate conferees in the matter
had.beeu met with a broad and unrelenting
nay oi) the j>art of the House
conferees,
The conference report was agreed to.
Mr. Hoar's bill relating to the meeting
of Presidential electors was passed;
also, the House bill making Lincoln,
Neb., a port of entry; also; with minor
amendments, the resolution for the investigation
of the killing of Joseph Hoffman,
in Washington county, Texas.
Mr. tylajr then took the fjoor and
spoke at length on his resolution concerning
the execution of Louis Iiiol.
The Senate then resumed the consideration
of the tariff bill, and was addressed
by Mr. Hiscock. It was proper,
he said, to criticise the recent attempt ol
the President and of his party to explain
away and to misrepresent the effect and
purpose of the Mills bill, which thej
claimed to be calculated to benejjt rathei
than to injure American labor and capi
till. The issue was fairly drawn between
the two political parties. The questior
was: Free Trade or Protection to Ainer
iean labor. Neither subterfuge noi
new confessions of faith would con
ceal or obscure the real ques
tiou. Democratic orators were at
' tempting in manufacturing districts t<
fillift their ground and to conceal tlx
, purposes of their party, but the olficia
' utterances of the President and the re
ports of the Secretary of the Treasun
emphasized by the Mills hill (which hai
been endorsed by the National Demo
cratic Convention, and which had j>ass
ed the House by a strict party vote,
left no doubt whatever as to the truth o
. the position of the Democratic party or
that great question. The Senate "bil
left no doubt as to the position o
the Republican party. Both partiei
conceded that there should be a reduction
of revenue and to about the saint
amount. Therefore the question of the
amount of taxation was not involved in
i the discussion, but the question was as
, to the manner in which the reduction
! should be made. . He examined some oi
1 the details of the Mills bill in order to
I prove that in the proposed reductions
, there were discriminations iu favor of
industries of the Confederate States as
against industriesof the Northern States.
The effect of the Mills bill, Mr. Hiscock
declared, could not bo disguised.
, The Senate bill was equally pronounced
in character and principle, it fairly
illustrated the Republican policy d
Protection, ami when it.s provisions became
law it would de/end the American
market against foreign competition. It
! was not sectional. Industries North,
South, Kast and West were equally provided
for iu it. It was the opposite of
the Mills bill. The Democracy hail ten,
tiered the issue and every ellort should
bo made to meet it fairly.
At the elose of Mr. Uiscock's remarks
Mr. Halo obtained the tloor and the
Tarill' bill went over till to-morrow.
Mr. Edmunds appealed to Mr. Berry
to withdraw his objection to the consideration
of the bill lor the benefit of the
widow of Chief Justice Waite. Mr.
Herry declined to withdraw his objection,'stating
that would be equivalent to
a consent to the passage of a bill which
lie considered thoroughly bad. -Mr. Edmunds
thereupon gave notice that he
would to-morrow morning move to take
up the bill for consideration.
THE HAKKM TKAUKUY.
What the Statu l>i<]?:irtiuont O.'Slchtln Say
About tliu Laura Schrlaiui- Case.
Washington*, Oct. 9.?Tho publication
of the story of the tragic death of
Laura Schriiner, who is supposed to
have bcou poisoned while sm inmate of
the harem of the Sultan of Turkey, created
a decided sensation among the ollirials
of the State Department.
Assistant Secretary Jti vers said Ion reporter
to-day that nothing was known
of tho case at the Impart mint and a careful
examination of the (lies shed no light
upon it.
Another prominent, ollicial of tin; department
said: "1 doubt if Laura S. hrimer
will ever bo heard from or her fate
made known to her friends if she were
really prisoned in the Sultan's harem.
People who have read the 'Arabian
Nights' imagine that the stories therein
narrated of sudden and mysterious disappearances
of the court t.i verities of
those Kastein potentates have no parallel
in real life, but Europeans who
have lived in those countries know that
too often these time-honored stories ot
murder shrouded in mystery find their
prototypes in events of the'ninetecnth
century. Itemember that the Sultan of
Tnrkev is more of a despot than any
| other European monarch, and that he is
surrounded by a routine 01 servants anu
slaves who regard it as a part of their
religion to do his bidding; without (juration.
"A woman's life is held lightly anywhere
in Turkey, and the liws of the
inumtes of a Turkish harem belonv absolutely
to their lords and masters. It
would be looked upon there as positive
impertinenec for a native Turk to demand
an explanation as to lite disappearance
of an inmate of the harem of
a prominent official, and no one would
dare institute an inquiry as to the fate
of any woman who has ever lived within
the sacred precincts of the Sultan's
palace.
"The story sdys the Sultan is believed
to have been incensed at the attempt of
the American Minister in Turkey working
in behalf of Laura's friends, to get
the woman out of her gilded captivity
and therefore poisoned the girl to prevent
her escape. Though I do not know
that any such eflorts as described were
made by the American .Minister, the action
of the Sultan, if he believed such to
be the case, would not be surprising. A
rather melancholy feature of the case is
found in the fact that should the assistance
of the United States Government
I be invoked, we would have to be content
with the replv of the Sultan should he

A CONFEliKNCK OF SENATOKS
To Arranges for Dcbato on the Turin' IJilI,
I'robubUitlCK of 11 Keeuiw.
Washington, Oct. I).?An informal
conference of Republican Senators was
held this morning to talk over the general
situation anil more especially to arrange
the course of debate on the tariJI'
bill. The results were meagre, owing to
the doubt everywhere entertained
whether a quorum of the Senate* can be
held in Washington should the tariff
debate be protracted beyond next week.
A dozen or more .Senators were named
who desire to make speeches, and a list
of Kepublicang was started which .so far
includes the names of Iliscoek, Cullom,
l'latt, Spooner, Aldrich and Teller. The
desire of a numbcrof Senators, however,
to got away is very strong, ami witli the
system of pairs prevailing in the Senate
and always rigidly adhered to, every
absentee reduces the voting force by two.
In considering these matters it became
apparent that there would be great ditliculty
in keeping a voting quorum to act
upon amendments and dually upon the
bill. No action was taken in conference
and no definite policy was sketched, but
there is reason to believe that if the
Senate finds itself for any length of time
without a quorum, either an adjournment
sine die or a recess for several weeks
will be taken. It, therefore, now seems
probable that this session will practically
come to an end next week or early the
week after, and that thotariff bill be left
for final action after election day.
A Conference on Yellow Fever.
Washington, D.p., Oct. 0.?The.Senate
Committee on Epidemic Diseases reported
to-day, as a substitute for the
resolution of Senator Call rotating to the
PrQPQSPil medjcal ponfercnce on yellow
fever, a resolution asking the President
to direct the chiefs of the medical bureaus
of the army and navy and the Marine
Hospital Service to co-operate with
the members of the conference to be
held in December and to report the result*
of that conference to Congress.

I For a time la?t niislit it seemed as if this .?
i . u
new complication could be avoided and
the original strike settled amicably, Imt u
the peace negotiations which were con- T
ducted in Mayor Roche's private ollice
J failed, because the company and men H,
could not agree on the subject of wages. (j"
President Yerkcs opened the confer
onre with an ollVr to correct the present 81
system of hours as far as possible. M
An agreement was reached on this point, Si
but when the wage question was taken
up the men insisted upon 25 cents per j*
hour for gripmeu, 211 cents for trail and lc
grip conductors, and 22 cents for horse
? men. Mr. Verkes offered 20cents
for horse carmen and 21 ccntaJor grip i(
car men. The strikers refuse to make
any concession and after much argument Sf
the conference broke up.
A committee of West-side car men
was waiting to learn the result, and "
tvliim I l.i. fiiliin. Ir> fill iiirr 1*
; was reported their chairman said a strike tr
would be ordered, and hurried away. j
A committee of the strikers waited
upon the .Mayor early in the evening to "l
complain about the retention of special er
detectives to guard the company's barns, cc
| The specials, they argued,were a menace of
to lile, and they also denied that they a!
were needed by the company.
"The city police,"said their chairman, II
"Can give Mr. Verkes all the protection <?
he needs, and while they are around re
there will be but little danger of any se- 15'
rious outbreaks." Pi
The committee left and a short time pt
afterward the Mayor sent for President pi
Verkes, whom he asked to discharge the
detectives. He said he would furnish K
enough policemen to protect the com- ri
paiiv's barns. Mr. Yerkcs promptly at
acquiescd in the request, and the spec- hi
ials were supplanted by regular police- T<
men. It is said this Morning that the th
Executive Committee of the South .Side al
Railway organization has tendered the
North and West Side strikers financial ni
assistance if necessary. or
In anticipation of a long struggle and M
to guard against possible outbreaks, the K
.police force is to be greatly increased.
About :r>0 applications for places on the of
force are on tile in the Superintendent's ce
olliee, and word has been sent to al! of ct:
these men to report for duty to-day. A ro
large force of patrolmen will be distributed
on the West Side to look-after
the railroad company's property. \
All through the morning hours thesidewalks
were crowded with peopleon foot
in both,divisions of the city, which, taken
together, contain nearly three-fourths of 80
the city's population. The extemporized w
vehicles of all sorts devoted to the car- p|
ryim* of psissengers, were totally inade- f
quate to the work, of course, and must '
continue to be while the strike lasts. "1
A serious disturbance marked the end- w
ing of the trip of the West Side cars this b\
evening. A dense mob obstructed the sa
police-laden cars in the down trip after oi
passing Halstead street. Nothingserious l.s
Happened, however, until the cars were 11
approaching the western terminus lu
of the return. There the crowd In
surged around the conveyances in tr
such a compact mass that it was impossi- hr
ble for the I lorses to move. A platoon el!
of police with clubs forced a way for the
leading car, but the one following was
brought to a stop with a lurch. A
wooden wedge had been suddenly inset
ted in the Western avenutr switch bv
some person in the mob. Superintendent
Magcl was the driver of the disabled ex
car. A scrimmage took place, but no f0
one was hurt.

meeting had not finished its work. Ac- Hj,
cording to the Receiver the deposits tii
smounted to about $000,000. The bank
had about $!)0,000 in good and available
securities and deposits on hand. The
deposits on Monday, the day of the stis- v
pension, amounted to $1:50,000. The
proposition to pay back this amount ^
met with much opposition from the CI
other depositors. The assets of the bank th
also comprise apiece of real estate sup- ar
posed to be worth &J0,000. The notes K?
deemed good amounted to $275,000. SL>
Several speeches were made, some of a*

A SENSIBLE MOVE
j Made by the Second Branch of;
Council in Tabling the
HIDE CURING ORDINANCE.
Considerable Kontiiie Itusiiiesa Disposed
of by City Council?Oilier ,
Claimants for the Glenn Mur*
I dex* Ucward -"Money. ^
Council met in regular semi-monthly
session Inst evening with a bare quorum '
present in both branches, and proceeded i
to dispose of what business there was on <
the tables of the two bodies. Nearly all J
of it was of a routine character and the j
meeting was over shortly lifter!) o'clock, t
having been one of the^juickostand most *
business-like meeting held for a long
time past. ^
The most important matter considered
and the one which provoked the most <
discussion, was an ordinance prohibiting
the rendering of tallow within the
..iK- limits nr ?bi? Olivine of hldn.q in nnv '
way or "the curing by salting or dry- i
iug." The ordinance was introduced
into the First .Branch several weeks ago, ;
and its special purpose was to put a stop j
to the operations of the Wheeling .Butchers'
Association at their new estab- j
lishinent recently erected at tho corner
of Sixteenth and Mcl'olloch streets, for
the curing of hides by salting and drying,
which, it is claimed by the Asso- *
eiation, can be done without giving the *
least oli'ense and which has been done
at similar institutions in this city for .
years. The rendering of tallow is al- .
! ready prohibited within the city limits.
This ordinance was iought over in the ?
committee before it went to Con net I. ,|
The Health Oilicer was made to investi- .1
gate and reported that the Butchers' As- ,1
sociation's establishment was not a uuis- r
ance nor likely to become one, and that
the business of salting ami drying was tj
carried on in a cleanly manner. The ,1
conservative * members showed that
Council, having granted the Association >
permission to put up its works, and that 1
at a considerable cost, it could
not now verv wen run me
business out of town with out incurring'
a big law suit with eorres
ponding expenses. They showed that !,
the ordinance would put a stop to every
tannery in town, and also stop long es- il
tublishV'd small concerns engaged in cur- '
ing hides. All this had no avail, however,
and it was reported to Council.
The light over it commenced in the A
First Uraneh two weeks ago and was re- Jsunied
last night. The arguments refer- 1
red to had no avail and the ordinance .
was put through by a vote of ?S to 2.
.Mr. l'aris and Dr. Ulrich uoting "no."
In the Second Branch, after being '
read once, it was on motion of Mr. !.
JJremer, indefinitely postponed. This ,
action has probably saved the city from V
a lively legal fight. The action of the A
Second was a surprise; it is so seldom J
that it adopts the conservative course.
So determined was the First to kill ofi'
the curing of hides that it refused to accept
a clause suggested by Mr. Schultze, ''
exceptiug tanneries. ,
The absentees from the First were j!l
Messrs. JJuckman, Delbruggo, Bobbins,
Met/.uer, McGregor and Schrebo. Mr. j,
Buckiuan appeared shortly before adjournment.
Jn tho Second the absentees 'l.
were Messrs. Davis, Kbeliug, Hartong, ,
K rait, Marsh, Miller, Prager, Young ami V,
Wheat. f
At the conclusion of the reading of '
the minutes in the Second, Mr. (.Jruse ?
asked for the suspension of t he rules that
In- might present a petition from the
LaBelle Pottery people. This was done.
The i irtition was one asking for a sewer. ,
The new pottery is about ready to start, 11
but as yet it litis no sewer outlet. A I
sewer was ordered some time ago, but j>
the Board of Public Works has had no C
money to construct one with. Mr. A
(iruse asked that the matter be referred vi
to the Finance Committee with instruc- u
tions to tr? and scale down enough ii
money from some other department to w
permit ol the work being done; and this ai
action was had. e
Clerk Bowers' regular semi-monthly o
report showing the expenditures made n
by the various departments since Janu- Is
ary 1 and the balance remaining, was tl
presented. Out of a total of appropria- h
lions amounting to $25.s:i,510 there has s<

tat the* Kiversiilo Iron Company has
Imndoned the use of natural gas in its
jbe department, and is reeonstrneting
a piain ior dm; 01 Jiiauuineiureu fins,
jntains an important indication of a
mdency of the times, Tim statement
mt nearly nil the manufacturing estabshnients
of Wheeling have abandoned
atnral gas makes the significance oftho
liange very great.
Pittsburgh is more fortunately situated
inn Wheeling, in being surrounded 011
11 sides by natural gits Holds, and while
in scarcity of supply which forms the
liief eoinplnint there has not yet been
It in this city, there have been indicaons
of the same tendency?to adopt the
lanufactured fuel gas. The Wheeling
sample seems to place it beyond doubt
int there is an acceptable substitute for
aturnl gas. There is no danger of a
jturn to the old sooty and wasteful
oiubustion of coal directly in the works;
ut the public and the "gas companies
like should perceive the importance of
lie fact that unless muual gas is both
hui.dant and cheap, fuel gas can and
ill take its place. If the natural gas
Dm panics cannot meet the exigencies of
lie case by furnishing plenty of fuel at
>vr prices, the public will be able to do
) by adopting manufactured gnu to a
cry considerable extent.
