Abusive epithets applied to publlo servants convince no one that they are unworthy. Against all these things the people are apt to place official records which tell of services well performed. The esteemed ivhloh hmtp? anvthlnr Ttanub Mean with An intense and bitter hatred, and is so blindly- prejudiced that It can sec nothing good 1n anything a Republican administration may do, whether it be national, staite or municipal, has started in upon its usual cHy camplgn of misrepresentation, distortion of facts and 'hypocritical pretenses. Yesterday, with the annual statement of The financial condition of the city be fore it?a statement showing a reduction of the public debt and a handsome exccsji of receipts over expenditures at the end of a year of extraordinary business depression and other adverse circumstances, our meifclaclous neighbor indulged In Its regular dally tirade about "rings," and the alleged "Incompetency" and "extravagance" of a Republican administration. The opportunity presented to it to make a comparison of the showing mde by the present city government with that of the one made by the | last Democratic administration, was 'totally Ignored. Facts and figures are what the taxpayers are after,and not unsupported and vindictive assertions. Comparisons are easily made. The statement issued at the close or tnc last year of the Democratic administration showed receipts in excess of the expenditures of only $8,97G 90, and the net debt $724,277 55; the statement Just made by the present administration shows an exy . cess of $27,198 33, and the net debt $644,i SOI 81. According to the Register's ; charge of extravagance on the part of " ? the Republican administration these figures should be reversed. The facta behind the figures are more ; significant. The present administration lias been enabled to make this excellent P. ishowing after having provided for and U liquidated overdue obligations which were left unpaid by by the last admlnls'' tratlon. This indebtedness should have been provided for by the body that created it, but It was not, and the succeeding council was obliged 'to meet the matter. Had the bills all been paid by the Democratic administration, not only would the statement for the year ending December 31, 1894, not have shown the oftiall balance of $8,000, but there would have been shown a deficiency of something like four times that amount. That the present administration found a way out of the embarrassing state of affairs which confronted It on assuming .control, and lias been able In two years to reducc the city debt more than $79,000, and close the year Just ended with a balance of receipts over expenditures of > $27,000, Is, we presume, in the Register's mind, an exhlbltlpn of "gross mismanagement" and "rank Incompetency." Our friend, the Register, was fair tn mv n urank nun. In Itx neivm column.1*, that the present management of the gas works has been most creditable and Is worthy of unstinted comnrendatfon. This was brought out by the statement of the gaa board, which allowed the very gratifying condition of affairs which have been evolved from the very unsatisfactory condition existing when the Republicans took control of the city. Even should the Register deny the Justice and the credit due to the administration Jn general, and sec fit to continue Its billlngsjrnto abuse of men Whose only crime 1s to bo in ofllcoa which some Democrat* want very much to nil, it must confess that it told the truth when It commended at least Wi? department for '>4Ui splendid showing under Republican 6 HHJiJlUiJH <i? management. An equal amount *of frank runs on the part of our neighbor would compel It to bear similar testitinsiiy to the other *^*rtm??nt5. Hard to Understand* Ex-United States Senator'Henry G. Davis' appearance before the ways and meant committee, asking for a restoration of the protective duty on coal, was not unexpected, for Mr. Davis has always been an ardent advocate of protection on West -Virginia's greatest industry. But, in view of his con^icuous advocacy of the McKlnley coal duty, so soon after bis support of William J. Bryan for President, Mr. Davis is in rather an anomalous position, It strikes us. In supporting Mr. Bryan and in voting for him, he advocated a political change which would have made It impossible to nave iun uui/ uu uvai imvuv Bryan is a free trader of the most radical stripe, and when a member of the ways and means committee which propared the Wilson, bill, was the worst enemy of the coal duty in the whole crowd, going: to the extent of declaring that a tariff on coal was wholly unjustifiable. Mr. Davis went down to Washington to protest against the reduction of the duty, and he and Mr. Bryan had a tilt In the committee room. Mr. Bryan chatechlsed Mr. Davis and the general verdict was that Mr. Davis got the be3t of the boy orator. In fact he completely floored him. Everybody was surprised during the late campaign, therefore, when Mr. Davis announced his support of this same Mr. Bryan, who had voted to take from the great industry, In' which toe (Mr. Davis) is go greatly interested, the protection H demanded. They are not surprised, however, to read of him being in Washington asking for a restoration of the duty Mr. Bryan; helped to take off. What they canfiot understand is how Mr. Davis could have expected to benefit the West Virginia coal Industry by helping to elect Mr. Bryan President Some other Democrats axe in the same position. They are among the first to look to the Republican party for good American laws that protect American in dustry, but, somenow or inner, wnen it comes to a political campaign, and they have an opportunity to 'help the party of protection, they are found supporting: the free trade ticket They kiss the hand that smites them, and smite the friend and preserver of tho Interests which affect them and thoae who depend upon them for labor. The Governor's Mtuasc. Governor MacCorkle's last message to tho legislature is a document of great length and exhibits evidence of having been prepared with much care. An abstract is published in this morning's Intelligencer. The greater portion is devoted to a review of the conditions existing in all the various departments of the state government and recommendations of legislation for their benell t. The governor makes a good showing of the progress of the various branches and their management and gives numerous statistics in support of the assertion that they are all on an excellent footing. An interesting feature of tho message is a review of the industrial activity in the state, and Interesting and hopeful predictions for the future. Whatever may be said of Governor MacCorkle, it must be admitted that he has at heart the material welfare of the state. He is on enthusiast on the subject of state development, and during bis term of office, ia lira trlnir 4a a. close, lie has never neglected an opportunity to exploit "West Virginia's wonderful resources and the Inviting field she presents for tho Investment of capital. However we may differ from him in political views, all good citizens will unite In giving him credit for what he ha3 done in contributing to the upbuilding of the state. It is fortunate, and to the credit of the state, that Governor MacCorkle's, successor, Mr. Atkinson, will be no less enthusiastic and energetic in this regard than he hns been. Taken all In all, the message is an interesting, if somewhat voluminous document. It Is impossible at this time to review all Its features. A Good Ufcln^lDR. The Republican majority In the legislature made a good beginning by selecting a splendid set of officers for each I house. "Without disparaging the abilities and worth of the gentlemen who *-*? tvifh fhp nlopps. it may laucu w bMiuvttt ...... .... . be said that those who ivere chosen ore In every way fit, and will perform the duties of their respective positions In such a manner as will reflect credit upon themselves, the state and the party. Senator Will taker, who will preside over the deliberations of the senate, is one of the best equipped men In that body for the position, and Mr. Hanen, the xyjw speaker of the house uf delegates, will not disappoint the expectations of the members, who chose him by reason of his experience and ability, two essentials necessary In a presiding officer. k All the?other officers selected by the two houses are eminently qualified for the positions and seem to have been chosen with a view to their particular fltrtess. If the legislature exhibits as much wisdom In the dispatch of business as It has shown in the choice of Its officers It will be voted a success by the people. Governor MacCorkle's reference to the coming change of administration is happy. He is not ?ne of those Democrats who are so blinded by partisan prejudice as to think that the handing over of the government to the Republicans means .. - ?i?4t-.? juat tno rumauvu ui vuw ?-.... . - as many patriots In the Republican party an he claims for the Democratic party, and Isn't at all worried about the future of .the commonwealth. And why should he be? The Republican party started West Virginia on Its career of statehood, In a time of st>?rm and gloom. It Is abundantly able to take charge of her now nnd keep her-In the path of safety. XfW Poilmnilrri. Special Dlftpatch to t ho Intelligencer. WASHINGTON.

' THE LEGISLATURE. There arc-lots of statesmen at Charleston (o tell the legislature how to do It. Perish the thought.-that any are there as lobbyists. They are "lawyers." or "newspaper men," or "educators." or "office holders." or something equally harmless. But the railroads, county officers, fee grabbers, and dther watchful guardian* of the people's rights will be kept posted.?State Journal. It Is apparent that some of the Democrats now that they fully realize that the positions which have so long been held by them In the institutions of this state are soon to fall Into the hands of others, are growing desperate and are Indulging In all kinds of prophecies ns to the position the Republicans will take as to some of our state institutions. We hear It predicted that our town is to lose her school. This we are glad to know comes from the Democratic side of the house, only, and at this time has but little weight?In fact it will only tend to unite the Republicans to work for the success and maintenance of the school?Concord Watchman. There seems to be an opinion prevalent that the corporations enjoying the good things given by the state In the way of franchises and privileges, have not nna arc not maKins pn?j?w i?ui.u In the form of taxes. and that the schemo wlil be revolutionised at th!" session, the burden taken from the agricultural people and a portion of It saddled upon the holders of stock in the great companies of the state. Of course this will precipitate a big fight The corporate bodies will not permit such legislation If they can prevent It. All that a large and properly equipped lobby can do will bo done to retain the present system and basis of taxation. While on the other hand, tho strength of numbers will probably be on the pide of the reformers.?Sistersville Oil .Review. Among tho important measures to be considered at the coming session will bo a bill providing for the abolition of the fee system in ail state and county omcos and tho substitution of Stipulated salaries, all fees to be turned over to the state. A bill will also be presented providing a new system of paying criminal charges by creating a state fund from which nil criminal charges are to he paid when due.?Point Pleasant Register. IMPRISONED WITH TARANTULAS. Extraordinary Experience of a Parkershurg Mbii Lorkrd In a Box Car* A St. Joseph, Mo., dispatch, of January 11, says: James Payne, of Parkersburg, W. Va., passed through this city last night on his way home from Portland. Ore. He was accompanied by his wife, to whom he was married a few days ago. Two months ago % Payne started for the Pacific coast. On the train, between Green River and Pocatello, hla pockets were picked. He was even unable to telegraph home Cor money, and determined to make his way through by the box car route. On the second night of his stay at Pocatello a westbound special pulled In. In which were several fruit oars. He climbed Into one that was filled with bananas, making himself as comfortable as possible. He had scarcely concealed himself before the door was closed and sealed. Ho went to sleep, and when he awoke it was to find himself In darkness with the train In motion. He had been aroused by something soft and velvety creeping across his face. He struck a match to see what had disturbed him, and to his horror he saw several large tarantulas. Payne fainted, nnd when he revived It was broad daylight and the train was still speeding onward. He tried the door to find It fastened. The straggling rays that penetrated the cracks of the door enabled him to see dimly the objects about him and he recognized his visitors of the night before. His fears were Increased when lie saw that the tarantulas had engaged In deadly combat among themselves. For hours he sat there facing the creatures, which neither advanced nor create.!. Tne night rnme on and again ho became unconscious. When next he knew what was going on about him he was on a cot In a hospital In Portland. He had been there a month, nnd had gone through an almost fatal attack of brain fever. Meantime the authorities, having discovered h?s Identity, had telegraphed to his people, nnd the young woman he was to marry had hastened to his bedside. He had not been found until the car was opened at Its destination, when he was unconscious and rawing like a mania". A mark in his forehead Indicated i?int ho had hern bitten by a tarantula.pmbably when he fainted the second tine*. As soon as he was able to travel he started for home by easy stages, first having married th^ woman who had joined him under such peculiar circumstances. Wlim Orniiilmn OhiI Siting..

FAIRMONT OOUBT HOUSEAHir it wmu Ordered Torn Donb t?r the CoAntr Court. Special Dispatch to the Intelligencer. , FAIRMONT, W. Va., Jan. 13.?At a meeting of the county court ywrterday, an examination of the court house was made, and the room was condemned as unsafe for further use. Upon close examination it was discovered that the plastering was about t?> fall down, and that owing: to the oge of the court house, and a lire which broke out In the loft of the same some years ago. the chimneys were In such a condition that they might have fallen through the celling at any moment. The county court therefore believing that a risk of loss of life should not be run, ordered the court room proper to be I torn down, which was done last night. A move is being made to rent the old M.

For more than a hundred years <h? Mount Lebanon Shakers have ptudled the cultivation of medicinal plants and sought to extract from them their healing essences. Their la bor baa not been spent in vain. They have made a discovery that will prove a blessing to mankind. It consists of a cordial that causes Immediate relief In cases of indigestion. The importance of this discovery will be apparent when we realise that nearly nine-tenths of our sufferings are caused by dyspepsia or indigestion. Nearly every person you meet has this digestive trouble in some of Its varied forms?sick headaclie.dlstress after eating, pain and fullness in the oheat after eating, palpitation of the heart, ctc., hre but symptoms of Indigestion. To relievo these sufferings has been the study of the Shakers, and they have succeeded. The reason the Shaker Digestive Cordial has such an immediate and salutary effect Is that It causes the food eaten to be digested, for it is undigested food that causes the distress. The Cordial causes the food to be digested before there is time for It to ferment and sour on the stomach. When the food Is so digested It gives strength and vigor to the feeble body, makes one feel bright and cheerful, and makes one gain In flesh. The Digestive Cordial Is so prompt In Its action that the very first dose will have a perceptibly favorable result It gives immediate relief. Every druggist has been sent n supply of our handsome Donkey Puzzle Books, and a copy may be had for the asking. It tells ail about the Cordial as well as Laxol, the new castor oil. Try a twenty-flve cent bottle of Dl?estive Cordial and see what it will do or you. For Yonr Protection. Catarrh "cures" in liquid form to be taken internally, usually contain Mercury of Iodide of Potassa, or both,which are injurious If too Ions: taken. Catarrh Is a local, not a blood disease, caused by cold and damp weatlier. It starts Ir. the nasal passages. Cold In the head, If repeatedly neglected, results !n catarrh. Ely's Cream Balm Is the acknowledged cure for these troubles and contains no mercury nor any Injurious drug. IUirmnnflum Cnrwl In y. "Mystic Cure" for Rheumatism and NilralglA radically cures in one to three days. Its action upon the system |s remarkable and mysterious.
