State Leoguo Clubs of West Virginia wll be held In the city of Charleston 01 Wednesday. March 25, 1196, for the pur pose of electing officers for the comlnj year, considering plans for a permanen organisation ana the election of delegate to the National League-.meetlng.

The Chamber of Commerce* The committee soliciting new mem bers of the Chamber of Commerce ha: been met with the criticism that "a fev men run the Chamber of Commerce.' This criticism has force because It ii true. It is true because-a few men hat to run tho thing or It would not havi been run at all. The general Interest in the Chombej of Commerce has not been what it should have been and what it is hope< it may be hereafter. Those who hav< kept the ball moving arc not only read} but eager to step aside and let othei men take their places. If the business men of "Wheeling will take hold as thej should the work will be more evenlj and more fairly distributed. This Is th( way to bring the Chamber of Commdrc* up to the highest possible efficiency. If the members, new and old, will at tend the meetings, show their Interest consent to serve on committees, anc then do the work of those committees the results will be apparent. Thos< who are interested in the welfare of th< ooramunity will be glad to know that bj the efforts of the soliciting committer the membership of the Chamber o Commerce has been doubled, and then are more members In sight. Those who have not been called upor should send their names to the seen? tary, Mr. Howard Hazlett. The desin is to popularize the Chamber of Com mence and to get out of It all that sucl a body is capable of producing for th< community. A' mistake In a telegram from Wash lngton made it appear that the hous' committee on rivers and harbors wouI< be In Wheeling next Wednesday evening The corrected dispatch names Satur day, March 21, as the time. The President and Calm. The President has been aroused bj the publication of the recent statcmcn purporting to represent the views of thi administration on the Cuban question He says that he knew nothing of thi statement until he saw it Jn print, an< that he usually baa no difficulty in ad dressing the public in his own way. The President's repudiation of th< statement must be accepted. All th< same that statement was given bj somebody In authority who thought ht was speaking for the President, at leas reflecting his view. But the wholi thing is easily arranged to the publli satisfaction. All that the Presiden has to do is to act In response to thi wish of Congress and the people. The Cuban question is easy to under standi The right thing to do \n easy ti know. Congn??a and the people knot what the right thing la.

This Is attributed by $ the Democrats themselves to Senator f'aulkner's course In not dealing frankly with those who were disappointed, i The contest was decided by the senator f to favor of Captain Charlie Wells three s or four days before he inadd public announcernvnt of the fact, and all the Cther applicants were kept under the i itipivsslon that the right was an open . One up to the last moment. Ordlnarliy this would not have mattered much, Ifut In this Instance the circumstances were such that the gentlemen who i failed to connect were naturally "rll} -Id." Senator Faulkner attended the Democratic "love feast" at Parkersfur* last Tuesday week, and It was there that the pressure was brought to tear on him that resulted in the underb standing before he got out of town that j Well* would be the marshal. The oth? candidates, at some expense to themselves, were on hand, but were not fct Into the secret They left under the impression that the senator, who had the recommendation to make, had not ^ia?!e up hlH mind. "There were bo many good men thut he really requlixHl Cme to take all their claims Into conditio rati on." So the crowd of aspiring Intriots, each filled with hope and accompanied by a delegation of backers, vent to the expense of going down to Washington to light the thlnpout. Afwr keeping Mi<?m there at great ex?ense to theiu the senator made the announcement which thoce who were nti the Inside at Parkersburg knew all itte time would lie made, i 1 When all this came out It caused |bme soreness to Iks added to the grievance that the Second district, which alE*ady had nearly everything In sight, t nt the plum. And now Senator laulkner is catching it from all sides. ' pie Incident has gone a long ways towards killing the effect of the eloquent r!?.a lie made for harmony before the I late committee at Parkersburg. Some <f the Democratic papers are speaking Ibclr minds In a way that must make t ie distinguished senator feel very uneomforiablc. He doubtless expected tie righteous Indignation expressed by the First district leaders, but he did tint expect that the dissatisfaction t/oul'! be general. Even In the Secqnd district, which he had a right to believe would stand by him. thore are Hjme caustic remarks bolng made. The Q raft on Lender, which In* an uncompromising Democratic organ, and Is Usually willing to nwnllow almost anything with a Democratic label on It, Indulges In the following tarl and appropriate remark: "The action of Senator Faulkner In '* tie contest for the marshalahlp of West ?

I e owned kliiK of Glover'a Onp may be * I r .'curded A3 a auuuel to an Incident which occurrod some years ago, and ?f which 1 happened to have personal knowledge at the time. After President Cleveland's first Inauguration (In 1818); when the Camden-Kenna combine had control of the natronago In West Virginia, Charlie ?vells, who had always bpen a warm supported of Senator Camden, and had nerved as first lieutenant In all his political battles, was a candidate for the marshalshlp. which then, as now, was regarded as the best paying federal position within the gift of the senators. It so happened that John T. McGraw, who had an equal claim on 8cnator Camden, and was an old chum of Mr. Kenna's, was a candidate for collector of Internal revenue. As both gentlemen woro In the Second district and lived In adJoining counties, the senators were very much embarrassed by the candidacy of both of them. It was out of the question to give the two best ofllcen to one congressional district McGraw and Wells were personal friends, ns close as two brothers?It was a case of Damon and Pythias. 8enator Camden wanted to do something for both and was In a quandary. One of them he could certainly favor, but they be in* n(uai in uio unwiiiuuuii ?i? ? decide which to prefer. Had they been of the ordinary run of politicians, each would have Insisted on his claim and the senator would have continued to be embarrassed. Hut they were not Wells learned of Senator Camden's state of mind and wasn't ten minutes making up his own mind what to do. He telegraphed Senator Camden not to let his candidacy Interfere with the pushing of McOraw's claim to a finish ?In fact to consider him (Wells) out of the race. Then he took the first train uuu wxm iu iianiiiiifiiuii i? uuum mo friend McGraw for the collectorshlp and stayed with him until he got it. Senator Camden haa over since had a higher opinion than ever of the Glover's Gap statesman.and It is not strange that the first time since that the latter wanted anything he made it * personal matter and asked his appointment. And It Is not hard to understand why it was that McGraw and his friends stayed up late at night laboring with Mr. Faulkner until Wells was promised the office he holds to-day. Tho selection of Wheeling by the Democratic committee as the state convention town does not seem to give satisfaction to the "rank and file" in the interior and the southern parts of the state. Many of the papers express their displeasure In plain English and a number of communications appear In their columns Intimating that there must have been some scheme back of the committee's action. One openly charges that it was done to keep the poorer clauses away from the convention. He argues that the lung distance from the central part of the state will make it possible for only the moneyed m?n And the nrofeHilonal politicians who ride on free passes to attand. Another says that U was the intent to hold the convention here 1# prevent the free silver faction, which is confined to the Interior and southern countles.from having a show. Another sarcastically Inquires why the committee didn't order the convention to be held in Pittsburgh and be done with it Another declares that the people will not be here?that It will simply be "a caucus of the bosses." And so It goes. The harmony so much talked about at the committee meeting does ikI seem to be much In evidence. The understanding is that the convention is to be held In Wheeling park. That Is an appropriate place, for It promises to be a "picnic." Young Republicanism is coming to the front more than ever before in West Virginia. In the list of candidates for state ofllces and for the county honors all over the state there is more than the usual proportion of young men. The old politicians of other day* are pushing this younger element forward, for they have learned that In it lies the hone of the oartv and the state. One of the representative, young men who Is Just now receiving frequent and favorable mention for the office of attorney general In Jnxeph D. Gained, of Charleston, but formerly of Fayette county. Mr. Gaines Is one of the coming men of West Virginia and has worked himself up In his profession very rapidly. I knew him some years ago when he was attending college and he gave very bright promise then. He has met the expectations of all who knew him then. He Is a bright lawyer, an upright man and a Republican you can tie to. He possesses all the requirements that go to make up a good campaigner. Indeed, j he comes from that kind of stock, for 1 he Is a son of Major Theophllus Gaines, who used to tell me thut he hud two religions?Presbyterian and Republican. There are other young men who | are being brought forward this year, and of them I will speak later. There is no falling off In the number of Republican candidates for local hon- I ors In Ohio county aDfl there Is very little talk about Democratic candidates. This has its advantages and its dls- j u<lt?iiiaAio. viic v. ?<(u ? r? that the great number of candidate!* insures a rousing turnout at the pri- i maries. the effect of which will be to | create lnt?*rest and enthuslnsm. One of ' the disadvantages Is that from among so many good men the voter will And It difficult to make a choice. Hundreds 1 of voters find that they have two or | three of their friends all asking for the same office and they nre In a quandary what to do. The best to do is to weigh carefully the strength of each and vote for the one who will be mont likely to win In November. Another disadvantage Is thf? danger of overconfldence. Republicans should carefully guard against the feeling that anybody can w4n. The Democrats will be In the saddle as of old. They have indefatigable lenders and we have seen In the past that they are ready, when driven to desperation, to resort to anything. There Isn't much harmony now amon?r the Weit Virginia Democracy, but the leaders will lay on the party lash when tho time comes. They will not succeed In whipping all Into line, but Republicans cannot afford to be overconfident. The Idea Is to make the majorities as large as possible. _ a. a. d. ITKilTLEY OIKPUGH BONO.

New York World: The Cuban resolutions adopted by the house and senate nro one In substantial meaning. There is no doubt that In one or tho other form tho two houses will speedily agree upon them as a result of the conference that'was ordered yenterday. It remains to bo decided whether or not they require the Presi/lent's approval or are subject to his voto. But whatover tho decision on that point may be, the resolutions call upon the President for action. In the name and by the undoubted will of the American people they call upon him to recognise the belligerent rights of the Cuban patriots, to strengthen the cause of liberty in tho Island with tho assurance of American sympathy, and to use every good otllce of our government to secure for this neighboring people the recognition of their right to self government. This is the voice of Coogress speaking the will of the people. What is the President going to no anout ui j nm question is anxiously asked in every quarter of the Union. There are uncomfortable rumors on the subject. It is reported that the President is not In sympathy with the country on this matter. The language of his message of last December is quoted?though not conclusively?In support of this assertion. It is further said that the President has gono so far as to assure the Spanish government that nothing will be done by eur administration until the beginning of the rainy season in June, but unless the revolution is beaten by that time some change In our attitude may then be expected. Fortunately this report Is not authoritatively confirmed. Such an assurance from Washington to Madrid would put a premium upon barbaric savagery as a means of hastening the end. It Is certainly not what the American people desire and intend. But what 1s the President going to do? It Is scarcely conceivable that he will set his will against that of the country as reflected In the nearly unanimous declaration of both houses of Congress. It Is still less imsglnuble that ho shall so stultify himself after his course in the Venezuelan matter. If there was a shadow of excuse for his Interference there, there Is an Imperative obligation of Interference here. If n was worm nm wuue tu ?u(u.u?. Intrusion Into the dlstunt and trivia Venexuelan dispute, about which the people were not thinking and concerning which Congress had taken no action, it is a thousand times more important that he shall act in tho Cuban case, at our very gate*, in the spirit of American traditions and in obedience to the very emphatic expression of the country's desire. It will be the plain and uneacapable duty of the President to do what these resolutions require, tho more as they require nothing to whioh Spain can Justly object. The country *111 not accept the belief that he will oppose himself to Its will, Its sentiment and Its convictions until the fact is made manifest In ofllclal neglect to obey the mandate.

Judged by the deep and serious interest which he took in the house, he might ha\e been clerk, lessee and proprietor rolled Into one. At about 6 o'clock/In the morning Mr. Jefferson was startled by a violent thumping on his door. When he struggled Into consciousness, and realised that he had left no call at the ofllce. he was naturally lndlgnai?t. But his sleep was applied for that morning, so he arose and soon after appeared before the clerk. "See here," he demanded of this Individual. "why was I called at this unearthly hour?" "I don't know, sir," answered the clerk. "HI ask Mike." The Irishman was accordingly summoned. Snld the clerk: "Mike, there was no call for Mr. Jefferson. Why did you disturb him?" Taking the clerk by the lapel of the coat, the Hibernian led him to one side, and said. In a mysterious whisper: "lie were shnorlng lolke a horse, sor; and ol'd heerd the by's saying something about hmr he were once afther shlaplng for twlnty years, ho ol says to mcsllf, Molke, It's a-coomlng onto '1m again, and It's yer Juty to got the crayther out o' yer house Instantly.'

II* Talks of lleadiiclie ami Nrrvomncu ild Gives a Cure fjr Uoth. Prom the Evening News. Newark, N. J.: It' was the drug clerk's turn to tell a story of one of his experiences, and the reporter, expecting something good, as usual, settled himself comfortably in a chair prepared to give his undivide attention to the speaker. The latter was Henry Maler, who resides with his parents on Acqueduct street, Newark, N. J., and who hands out medicine over the counter of Dr. Andrew F. Burkhardt's drug store at 271 Orange street, this city. "Perhaps I can do nothing better," he began, "than to tell you the secret of my good health. It is a story that I have told to many, recently, and as it resulted in good in each case, it may be worth your while to listen to it To T ?a.na nnl nlu'Bl'a ut rnnrr and robust, as I am now. Long hours of work and hard study had left me in a wretched. condition. Frightful, lingering headaches found me a ready victim, and at times I was so nervous that the dropping of a pin would cause me to give a violent start, and then I would be seized with a fit of trembling that was. to put It mildly, exceedingly bothersome. Well, I began to doctor myself. Now I flatter myself that I know something of medicine; but with all my knowledge, I could And nothing that would cure those terrible headaches or put an end to my extreme nervousness. When I picked up a bottle my hand would shake as though I had the chills, and If it was a powder that I was handling I stood a good chance of sprinkling it all, over these black trousers. Things went from bad to worse.and I soon realised that a man of my physical condition had better not attempt to mix any medicine. " Try a box of Dr. Williams' Pink Fills,' said Dr. Burkhardt. one day; anu as ynu Know mc uoviur a uu.j?c in always worth following. I got the Pink Pills and began to take thorn. Aladdin's lamp never performed the wonders of these pills. Would you believe It? Before I had taken the eontents of one box my headache began to Rive me a day off occasionally, and soon It left me entirely. How about my nervousness? Well, the pills put an end to that with almost startling abruptness. You see I know enough about the business to appreciate the Importance of following the prescribing physicians' directions, and by paying utrict attention to those given by Dr. Williams with each box of his Pink Pill*, I was soon another fellow. Look at me now! A picture of health, eh? Well. that Is what Dr. Williams* Pink Pills will do for a man or a woman either. See. I can hold thlH glass of water out now without spilling a drop, but I couldn't do that two months ago and?" "What Is It. ma'm?" he asked as a neatly dressed woman came up to the counter. "A box of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills." "Yes. ma'm, fifty cents, please. Thank you."
