Huxtixoton, W. Va., Oct. 1.?Democrata
from all over tho Fourth district
have begun to arrive in Huntington
thii ovenlng, and tho second congressional
convention will be held bore
to-morrow in tho bnudsomo Davis tboatre.
The Barnnm club bos made oxtensivc
arrangements to entertain tbo
visitors and make tbo convention a
notablo one. Tke convention will be
called to order at noon. Ashur G.
Carntb, ot tho Lexington, Ky., district,
and Allen 0. Sleyors will bo here to
speak. In this manner tho Domocrata
expect to make up (or their lost time'
and brace up tbo disheartened Democracy.
The Uarvoy peoplo will moke ovory
attempt to railroad tho judeo's nomination
through, having Cabell, Wayne,
Lincoln and Putnam to start oil with.
They claim they will switch Wylle, of
\f?onn. nff thn track after tho tirat bal
lot, and capture most of bis delegation.
Tiioy huve iuuuu the boast that they got
the convention bare and they aro going
to nominate thoirman, no matter what
any other part of the district mar
iiut Harvey has some of the boat
workers in the Barnnm ctab agaiuat
bim, and ha will find a strong opposition
from tbo upper endol the district
Ilia bockors have been working D. H.
Leonard's roligion against tiim, and aa
Leonard lias a good many warm frianda
in Cabell, they aro fighting hot. It Is
thought that an arrangement has been
made by tbo upper end.counties to
combine on John M. Hamilton, of Calhoun,
if it comes to a point whoro Harvey
cfln bo defeated by aucb a combination.
The Uapobart forces and the
"eilent statesman" will have a considerable
pull in tlio convention, which will
be worked against Harvey whon tho
proper time comes. Tho Democrats in
this end claim Harvoy is tbo strongest
man that could be solected, but bo has
run boliind his ticket in overy raco he
ever made.

Camkro.v, W. Va., Oct. 1.?Ono of tho
most enthusiastic mooting that ever
assembled in tbo town was addresiod
here this evoning by CapU B. B. Dovenor.
Tho whole space in iront of tho
Crawford hotol, which had boon tastefully
decorated and lighted for tho occasion,
was packed with a demo audienco
of over six hundred people, who, in |
spite of the cold night, never movod for
full one hour and u half, choering to the
echo tho slodgo hammer arguments that |
tho captain known just how to make i
count in favor o( America's great indui-1
tries. To report all tho good things said ,
would bo to give his wholo speech, as I
every sentenco was an unanswerable
argumont, or a vivid illustration df tho |
fallacios of froo trado on tho ono hand
and tho advantages of protection on the
other. |
One of the most remarkable features I
was the immense size of the audience I
and tbo numbor of Democrats and Populists,
who listonod from start to finish,;
and ono life long Domocrat was tho
tirst to climb on tho stage aftor tho i
speech to, shako hands with and congratulato'the
J. E. Hooton was loudly cullod for after
tho cuptain had finished and mado n
very pointed speech that ploased all

the Washington departments, and othor
arms of President Clovoland's govornxnont
who havo alroady been making
speeches in this district for Mr. Wilson,
whilo ho is across tho seas enjoying
Ixmdon banquets, etc., there came hero
to Uayton'H home to-day, anothor contingent
of Washington attaches, hcadod
by Hon. C. S. Hamlin, atsislnnt secretary
of tbo troasury.
Tho occasion was to havo been a big
Democratic gathering, but tho little
Philippi court houso was suificlontlv
largo to hold tho crowd that usfloinblod.
The audienco was ontortaiued with addro8son
by Mr. Hamlin, who snoke
about forty mlnutos, and that colobrated
gnntloman, Mr. W. A. Croflut, with his
SI 10 suit of clothes, which liooxliibit*

coating but $110, especially when they
consider that the labor on inch a low
priced loit muit have been at starva- i
tion prices after you deduct the cost of
the cloth and the profita of the manufacturer
and retailer. Mr. Croffut,
who.bytheway.il a noted Waahington

aeeoia perfectly innocent of the fact
that bo it "hoodooing" Mr. Wiiaon by

Ilia quaint address was, as usual,
amusing it not very harmful. Mr.
Blsnchard is to remain in this section,
where he will mako a number of
speeches and entertain such Democratic
audiences as can be gotten together in
these days of slimly attended Democratic
meetings. In the meanwhile the
Second district's next congressman, our
own Gordon Dayton, is every day making
rotes, and the peoplo believe he
will represent their interests, and not
England's, when he gots to Congress as
Mr. Wilson's successor.

Outrron, W. Va., Oct 1.?A meeting
of prominent Republicans, about ten'
days ago in Grafton, to canvass tho
political situation, as published In the
IktemiIOESCkb at the time, was pitched'
upon by tho Grafton correspondent of
the Register, as an opportunity for desoending
to the low methods of a "mudslinging"
In bis dispatches last week the
traniia fhonrr ? nu nrainntnfl with ?n
audacity only equalled by Ha otter
absurdity, that "this meeting of Republicans"
meant a campaign of wonderful
quantities of "boodle, la which
the poople would bo bought like sheep
in the abatable!, and the entire legislature
of the sovereign state of West Virginia?Senator
Camden's "re-arrangement"
and all?would be stolen outright
bo that Mr. Eikios conld bo sent
to tho United States eonate; and that,
it was decided by these Republican
conspirators "net to waito any monoy
on Dayton." Now all that is changed
and denied in another story In to-day's
Register, wherein it is asserted that the
aforesaid meeting of Republicans waa
held "for the purpoBo of devising ways
and means for raising additional money
to defeat Congressman Wilson," oto.
In one Instance, "it was decided to
waste no money on Dayton," but now
it is charged that all thin mythical
"boodle" is for Dayton's sole benefit.
It thorefore appears that the writor of
the articles in quoBtion cannot toll a
falsehood twice in tho sntno way.
The trend of such political newspaper
trash as tho stuff mentionod only goes
to doinonstrate tho dosperation ana
panic-strickon condition of Grafton's
coterie of Democratic wiro-pullers.
They not only soe in advance the finger
of destiny pointing to the defeat of the
distinguished gentleman, who is tho
idol of Great Britain, but haa done
nothing for tho people of his own district
excoptthoso politicians for whom
be has gotten oflicos; bat they fear a
general uprising of tho people that will
result In tho downfall of tho Democratic
party in tho state. As to boodle?it is
notorioua that Democratic boodle is
already boing used. To say nothing of
tho quantity that baa boon contributed
by Now York importers
to aid Mr. Wilson, there
are tho results of assessments
of tho salaries of hla appointees to office.
That money is alroady being used
a anl/lanna/l Kw On inniflnnt thill TA.
contly occurrod in Barbour county,
where a certain George Enamiuger tried
to brook up a Republican meeting. Ho
called some folks up in Barbour "bad
namos" and invited them to join tuo
people who had money, declaring publicly,
to which declaration thero aro a
nutnbor of responsible witnesses, that
he had $500 of Wilson money, and to
prove it he pulled out a big roll of
greenbacks from his pocket, which ho
boaatingly displayed.
Oh, yes, thero will bo boodle in this
campaign, even if tho Republicans do
not have a dollar for campaign expensos.

Some 50,000 voungsters wore

storm of choors and demands for a

extending thanks for tho welcome accorded
him and expressing gratification
that tho great exhibits were all tho |
handiwork of Amorican workmen. As |
a mnnufnrtnrincr nation the United

must bo maintained.

Thoro was an imraonso crowd in Suburban
Hail tcnigbt, filling and overflowing
the large building. The cbeoring
of the great audiouce bocarao almost
cyclonic whon Governor McKinloy
arose, and continued for several minutes.
With an expression of amazemontupon
hit faco, tbo speaker begun
with: "Your chairman said that this
was the opening of the Republican campaign
in Missouri; I wonder in my heart
what it's close will be," and the audienco
rospondod with another outburst.
"Tho truth is?" continued the govor-1
nor, "that 110 hall is large enough for
Republican meotinga this year. I was
horotwo years ago whon I addrossed a
vast concourse of people in tho Exposition
hall. Wo woto unfortunate in
that year aud we havo boon unfortunate

A contrast was mado betwoon tho industrial
conditions thatoxistcd under
tho Republican tariff luw and those existing
at present, the result, it was
charged, of Democratic legislation, and
Govornor McKinloy inquired whothor
tho audience thought it tho business of

tho United States or for foreign nations.
"Nobody," said ho, "has hoard ot any

["No, no."] Thoy say tho law of 181*4

it has reducod duties.
It roducod tho duty on tin plato, and
Mr. Niedringhaus, who sits bosido mo,

Ho has closod his tin plato works bocauso

aa to public qneationa mayexlat between '
tho President and myself, tboy shall I'1
not interfere, so far as I am concerned, pi
I with my duty ia the boars of conflict
and danger. ({
Tho Democratic party in 1892 pledged
I itielf to certain roforuie. Firat, the ti
1 repeal of the foderal election* law, N
which authorized tbo use of United f0
States marshals and soldiers at tho ?
I polls; second, the repeal of the Sherman
act; third, tbe reduction of tarifl taxa- cc
tion to a revenue basis; fourth, the R
lessening of governmental expenses.
Governor McRinlev, in his recent
speoch at Bangor, Maine, mado tho ,
statement that not a staple pledgo of
I tho Democrats has boon redeemed.
When we reflect that bis speech, carej
fatly prepared and made at a bid for the m
I presidency, contains no allusion to his tfc
| views on the two great issues of silver
coinage and the income tax, it is not
surprisingthat he should add mendacity m
, to cowardice. Tbe Democratio party U
I has, in fact, repealed both the federal a(
| elections law and the Sherman act, ^
while the oporessive provisions of the cj
I McKinloy tariff have either been on- aJ
| tircly eliminated or greatly modified
I and governmental expensos largely do- v<
creasod. I shall not bo to disingenuous y
| as to evade tbo fact that tho repeal of at
I the Sherman act, which authorised the in
purcbaso of silver by the government, Uj
was accompanied by serious and jrritat- to
I ing diversity of opinion in both tbe He- ?p{
publican and Democratic parties. Sen- f0
ator Vest expressed his own vlowa aI
I against the ropeai, and advocated free w
silver. c]
In referring to stato and national ^
I banks, Mr. Vest said: The legislation B{
' which tared out of oxistonce the circalitinn
r\9 atifn hfinlfQ { A CrmHH tlflrVflr- C
| sion of tho taxing power and should boJ p
repoaled. The cry of bankort and o
bondholders that state banks cannot be n
truitod to issue notos, and that the ora gl
of wild-cat and red-dog money would a'
return is tho cry of self-intorost only.
If the state cannot bo trusted to protect it
tho issue of notos by aiato banks with bf
propor limitations and ba(o guards, thon ol
tho thoory of our government is falso c)
and tho whole fabric unsafe. ui
Taking up the tariff tho speakor ro- u
peated tho history of tho passago of tho ai
now tariff bill* as told by him in tho m
sonato, and declared thoro was nover a p
momont when tho Wilson bill would
have passed the senato. Tie said: "If
any difference of opinion on tho subject
exists botweon the Prosidont and sf
myself it is that I am moro oxtromo in
my viows and havo long sinco discarded
tho fallacy of a tariff for ovon incidental at
protoction. Tho atatomont that thoro ^
was any issuo between the President .
and mysolf as to tariff reform is false. kl
The statement that I sympathized with tt
Senator Gorman is equally false. If
tho President had contented himself T
with denouncing those who forced the P
amendments upon us I would havo said ai
nothing?but when ho attacked the "
wholo senate indiscriminately for action ti
to which ho bad given his approval as 01
absolutely nocesiary, I could not romain
silent. w
"The new tariff law is infinitely hotter w
as a tariff reform measure than the solf- al
constituted critics have inducod many
Democrats to beliove. It removes many 11
of the oppressive provisions in the Mc- Q
Kinley act, and does not deserve tho a>.
