Compare the Record*.
For some time past the local Popo,tratic
organ has been publishing a series
of o3sa.y?, supposed to be a review of the
history of tho present dty administration.
The essays, to those who read
them, wero chiefly remarkable for the
manner In which figures were juggled
and the reckless and untruthful assertions
with which they abounded. Yesterday
the organ lumped all the essays
together and sprung them on the unsuspecting
public as a sort of symposium or '
exhibit of -what a conscienceless writer
with a capacity of misrepresenting
things can- do.
The Intelligencer has called attention
frequently to the comparative records of
the last two administrations, showing
how tho present administration has,
notwithstanding the obstacles it has had
to overcome. In the shape of a period of
great business depression, and the Inheritance
from its predecessor of unpaid
and long overdue obligations, managed
all departments economically, conducted
the city's business in a business-like
way, provided for the inherited over due
bills, and reduced the public debt nearly
180,000.
The voters of the city, and particularly
the tax payers, are familiar whh the condlHons
which confronted tho Republican
administration when it assumed control
and tho difficulties it had to cnonunter,
and they are familiar with the financial
situation -to-day. They will make their
comparisons Intelligently and vote Intelligently.
The Intelligencer is confident
they will do this, for we have an intelligent
community, and not one which
can bo apiKviled to by rank demagogy
and tugglcd figures. Nor Is it a community
which can or will be swayed by
hypocritical talk about non-partisanship
Jn city aff.iira when It comes from an organ
notorious for Its foUltogggaic abuse
of everybody and everything Republican,
or of those in sympathy with anything
that is Republican.
it Is a community that can are through
the mask of the hypocritical local organ
as plainly DOW as it could see through It
Jn the pjust. ,We believe tho voters of
Wheeling will compare the tickets that
are presented to thorn for thoir suffrages
and glvn their majority vote f?ir the cne
which 'not only seems to be the most
worthy by reason of lis superiority, but
. vhlch represents the party that brought
city affairs "out of the hole" In which
the last Democratic administration loft
thorn.
Ijot there be- ? full voto to-morrow. A
full vote moans the choice of the best
men for council.
U?(lilrr Abmrdtllti.
In the local organ's symposium, comprised
of a seri.-s of rtlsingenlua '-ssays
on "Republican City Reform? It has Introduced
a number of very absurd
things. Among the most ridiculous efforts
at Juggling with llgures to make a
point against the Kepubllcan administration,
and ono which will :??4rve as an
example of,the rank demagog)' lu.oudo.l
to appeal to thoughtless; voters, is the
following.*

In the number of licenses nnH a consequent
reduction; of revenues from that
source will strike the average business
man us auiiiclliljitf supremely ridlculou.*.
The decrease in the amount of lines and
fees collected, which the Register would
have us believe was due to Republican
incapacity, might bu accounted for in a
number of ways. Perhaps it indicates a
decrease in the number of offenses
against the law under the watchfulness
Of Chief Bennett's excellent police force,
and the consequent fewer cases to come
before our very efficient Republican*
mayor. Then, again, it might be duo to
the fact that the classes of such cases
varied In degree from more serious cases
in previous years. There has been no
complaint that the mayor ha3 dealt too
lightly In the matter of lines, nor that he j
ha? not executed the duties of his olllce
faithfully and well.
As to the matter of a decrease inwharf
receipts, the local Popocratio essayist
plainly shows an Intent to deceive ignorant
and thoughtless voters. The organ
well knows, aiid every commercial interest
in Wheeling knows, that the decrease
Is due to the reduction In wharfage
charges last year fully thirty per cent,
something which was done for the public
benefit. Eeven had this reduction not
been made, and there had sllll been a decrease
in receipts, how would our contemporary
hope -to show that tho Republican
administration was in any way
responsible? Are not wharfage receipts
dependent tipon the amount of wharfage
business done, and is not that business
subject to trade conditions?
It is by such rot as all this that the
Popoeratic organ hopes to carry this city
for the Democratic ticket. Again we remark,
the people of Wheeling are not
fools.
In this connection, It may be added, in
reference to tho increase in the tJtTC, mentioned
in the paragraph quoted above
from the organ, that our contemporary
takes particular pains to'ignore the fact
that after the liquidation of the unpaid
and overdue obligations left over by the
last Democratic council, the present
council repealed the increased levy and
the taxpayers are now paying the old
rate. Had the entire Increase been collected
It would have amounted to only
$32,000. It was intended to provide for
the deficiency left by the last administration;
it was the part of good business
to make such provision, and get the establishment
on a business basis.
Mr. Bryan, in "his book, a review of
which, given to the press Monday night,
indicates that it ia a work of very ordinary
merit, defines bl-metallism as twometallism,
which, he says, means the use
of two metals as standard money. The
word undoubtedly means the use of
two metals as money when applied to
money, but where does the late Popocratlc
leader get his authority for the use j
of the word "standard" in this connec- j
tlon? _ I
"The Kxact Facta."
Let us get at the exact fact?. Mr. A.
W. Campbell wrote that the McKinley
act and the Sherman silver purchase act
were largely the cause of the panic of '93,
"and all the resultant depression in busl-1
ness."
Where Is the Register's "dishonest mis- ]
construction" bore, and if the "woes un-1
numbered" were not brought;upon the
business world, upon what world were
they brought??Register. 1
The exact facts are that Mr. Campbell
never wrote anything of the kind. The i
Register's quotation from his letter in
reply to Mr. Hearne shows that he did
not. Hid exact language in regard to the
McKinley bill and the Sherman law, according
to the Register's own quotation,
which is correct, was: "Both acts were
the cause of woes unnumbered to the
Republican party, and the Sherman act
was largely tho cause of the panic of 1S93,
and all tho resultant depression in business."
It will be observed that only the
Sherman act Is referred to as a cause of
tho panic. The "woe" to Republicanism
caused by the McKinley bill was party
defeat, doubtless. The enforced purchase
of silver, together with the uncertainty
caused by the repudiation of the
policy of protection, represented by the
McKinley bill, creatcd fear and lack of
coniidence and brought on the inovitable
results.
In spite of the uneasiness In financial
circles due to the Sherman act the country
had prospered under the McKinley
bill to a degree never excelled in our history.
But demagogues were abroad in
the land, and in the midst ?>f this prosperity,
and when tho benefits of the Mc
Kimoy lanit mw were uc6utii<Mb ??
felt, a presidential campaign afforded
thorn the opportunity to do their work.
By appealing to the prejudices of men,
by arraying labor against capital and
making the plain people of the country
believe that they were being taxed for
the benefit of the few, free trailers succeeded
in prejudicing them against the
McKinley. law and the party that was
responsible for its enactment. This
campaign resulted in the defeat of the?
Republican party at the polls, at a time
when it was demonstrating to the country
it.* competency to govern, and when
the condition of trade and commerce was
vindicating the wisdom of the policy nf
protection. The protective tariff law
had to go with the party. The party had
made it and had to suffer for the act.
Tills was the change the people voted
for in a lit of temporary insanity, but
when the period of depression came iu? a
consequence they came to their senses,
and wltfjln .dx months they would have

A Itrlfiht Oiiflnoli.
"The fashion of downcast talk is the
fashion of allHnes.V says the N ?w York
I Times in nn article on the outlook for a
business revival, an cxtraot from which
I N published In another column. Th
Tlme i s.iys thai wherever Inielllm nt
I vlaws are current the revival, the llrttt
signs-of which were evident after the
November election, is confidently expected.
More men are employed and
more capitaj is active than have been
f<>r tbo pj??t (Vnr vcars.
A pleasing feature of the eltuatlon is
that the factories starting: up last November
are not shotting down. The recovery
from the.effect of many months
of agitation of a financial heresy is gradual,
but aure, and with the coming of the
new administration pledged to a safe
policy and a tariff that will produce revenue
and protect American Industries,will
como the realization of the prediction*
that have been made since it becamo
known that Republican success was assured.
As the Times says, there Is no
sense in the downcast talk, and the favorite
question oif the vindicative BryanItes,
as to the whereabouts of the promised
prosperity is the veriest demagogy.
The best part of Bryan's book is the introduction
written by Mrs. Bryan. There
is a strong contrast between her happy
style and his labored and rambling attempt
to bolster up a weak cause. Mrs.
Bryan's description of her liurfband'u
smile, famous for the size of the mouth
that forms it, may not have been intended
to be humorous, but it Is humorous
Just the came.
"Bear la mind," says the Register,
"that national politics cut no figure In
the city election." Is that the reason
we have noticed of late no sneering references
to "Boltocrats," "Traitors to Democracy,"
and "Plutocratic Gold Bug
Democrats," in the editorial columns of
the Register? Perhaps the Register Is
trying to keep its chickens from coming
homo to roost.
' About Books.
Mr. Frank Stanton has a very Interesting
letter in the Publishers' Weekly,
In which he reports the Christmas sales
In his book store at Wheeling* W. Va.
See how fashion, social follow-my-lcaderlsm,
prevails over sound judgment on
this, as In so many other matters: "The
first books to go this year were the $2
Juveniles of the Century Company, with
Stokes' 'Sweetheart Travellers' and Lippincott'o
'Capt. Chap.' the two latter be ing
bought In comparatively large
quantities. Coming to the leading books
for adults I found the Ian Maclaren
books easily first, with 'Sentimental
Tommy' a good second. The new Corclli
('The Murder of Dellcla') was something
of a disappointment, as was
Hope's "Princess Osra.' The fashion or
reproducing old standard novels in lino
two-voluine seta at $5 or SG retail Is attended
with much risk, and the bookseller
shouiu not judge his prospective
sales of all by that of Porter & Coates'
'Lorna Doone.' or Harper's 'Ben Hur.'
Neither 'St. Elmo' nor 'Under Two
Flags, and I might include 'The First
Violin,' were at all such good stock as
I had anticipated. No stock pays better
and is less apt to prove 'slow' than
a good, big stock of Bibles from 30 cents
to $10."?'The American.

the reply, "they iye playing 'Ain't I

beautifully big jag whose breath tore
holes in the wall. The Jag was sitting,
as a matter of comfort and necessity,
with his head bobbing over the back
of a chair. Its face had almost twice
as much expression as a door-knob, aud
Its eyes would have made a good substitute

WHAT LIOHTHIKO CAW DO.
Lightning has b^en known to photograph
objects on the human skin?a
phenomenon known as tho "lightning
print" Among recorded cases is that
of a sailor, who, while mending his
shirt at the foot of the mast, was struck
by lightning and killed. "When the dead
body was undressed the image of a
horseshoe was plainly visible upon the
back, the exact representation of a
horseshoe nailed to the ship's mast. Another
sailor, struck in the same way,
had the name of his ship marked distinctly
on his breast.
Cows, crosses, trees, birds and other
objects are said by a writer In an English
magazine to have been photographed
in the same manner. A remarkable
story is told about six sheep killed by
lightning near Bath. When the skins
of the sheep were taken off "a facsimile
of a portion of the surrounding
scenery was visible on the Inner surface
of each skin."
The only photograph of a lightning
print which has been published represents
the arm of a boy who was struck
by lightning in Berwickshire on June
9,1883. The tree he was leaning against
was struck and the bcry thrown across
the road. When picked up the "impression
of tho yew tree branches was found
plainly marked on his skin."
The effect of lightning on wearing apparel
Is very curious, and is accounted
for by tho supposition that the current
travels along the damp surfaco of the
skin, driving the moisture into vapor,
which, on account of its expansion,
blows the clothes to tatters. Two workmen
were eating dinner under a big tree
when a flash came, severely burning one
and stunning the other. When the
stunned man came to he felt no pain,
but discovered that his trousers were
ourning; mat ms Knue uou u\.-c??
knocked out of his hand and that the
steel buckles had been torn from his
shoes. He put the lire out and managed
to crawl to the road for assistance.
Prof. Tyndall had a story of a lady
who, shutting a window during a storm,
had the gol? bracelet on her arm destroyed
by a Hash of lightning, which
left her quite unhurt, but with a blue
mark round her wrist. The blue mark
was oxide of gold, all that was left of
her bracelet
