And OM Midlers ? A Veteran De/ende
Kim Against Ilia Action ( Bloaitil?vlllc
ii. A. II. P?i(-rh? Beat and Truest
Friend of lb* Soldier.
To the Editor of the Intelligencer.
tilit:?Soma days ago the O. Al H.
post at Moundsville, took occasion to
denounce Governor Atklneon. Now let
us carefully look Into this matter and
fee who it emanates front whether
from the soldiers as a mass or from six
or seven soldiers, aided by outsiders,
who are not friendly to the governor;
and who hunted up these six or seven
soldiers and caused them to denounce
the governor as tfcey did. In the first
place the G. A. It. la not a political organization,
consequently this Action cortaken
with the annroval
of the post. How this unjust work was
done, ?H good G. A. li. men wish to find
out. and the commander-in-chief of the
c; A. R. will surely Investigate and expose
any such work, whloh Is calculated
10 ruin the G. A. R. Of course it does
not Injure Governor Atkinson, as the
soldiers, widows and orphans, as a
anas-4, will spurn anyone who attempts
to Injure him or any oil**- man who hus
stood by them ut all times and places,
lit'it to our lamented Logan. The lndisjiutable
proof of It Is that every soldier,
widow and orphan that ever asked a
favor of Governor Atkinson while he
was in Congress, received a reply. He
never shirked, but took up their case,
end wont In person to attend to it.
There are now about fifty soldiers tilling
places In Washington City, who weru
appointed by Governor Atkinson, more
than any other representative from this
state secured. Thousands not hundreds
of the soldier element of this stute today
will soy if It had not been for the
governor they would not be drawing
He did not confine himself to his own
congressional district. He was the only
civilian who was ever invited to speak
*>t rhe> Arlington National Cemetery.
jI* hart made more Decoration Day uddresses
than any man who ever lived In
West Virginia. He Is never Idle on that
day. but with his own hands, helps to
j-l.ice llowers upon the graves of comrades.
While In Congress, he appointed doctors
who had been soldiers, on all the
pension boards, anil demanded that
they give the soldier the benefit of all
doubts. He also appointed a soldier
postmaster at all the best paying po?tofllces,
at New Cumberland, Wellsburg,
Wheeling, Moundsvllle and Weston. At
Clarksburg no soldier asked for the office,
and In all the small postofllces he
appointed soldiers If he could do so
without raising a fuss. He had more
than 5.000 claims of West Virginia soldiers
made special because of the per'
sonal attention given them, and this is
why I say no six or seven soldiers nor
their backers can Injure the governor,
or turn In the least any one against
him. They know their friend and will
I'ver stand by him.
The soldiers, widows and orphans
have gratitude, and have n warm place
1n their hearts for the governor that
cannot and will not be disturbed by the
few who seek to Injure him.
Now we will s^e what he has done In
the way of appointments In the state
since he has been governor, and this
will show all that he has not Ignored
the soldier. West Virginia has a population
of about one million. Of this
number there are Kl.000 soldiers. There
are two soldiers on his staff, seven at
the Moundsvuie prison, two in me capital
to look after It. one soldier doctor
at Weston, two fllllnR- places ns labor
commissioners. These make fourteen
thnt I know of at present. Could the
governor do more nnd keep peace with
the remainder of the million of people
of the state? He had only twelve state
offices to Rive, and put In two soldiers,
consoqufntly any fair minded person
? ? ... ,.n _.m ,i,?, ,lwi

13.000 soldiers have the best of It as far
ns appointments are concerned. At no
time or place has Governor Atkinson
ever slighted the soldier element, always
giving them preference or representation
when he could do so. and
many times caused n fuss by nppolntIng
soldier. He has often said to
the soldier belongs the spoil." when they
are capable of filling the office*. There
1s not room for all, and all are not capable.
On different state boards he has appointed
soldiers to give them representation.
In one of Governor Atkinson's
speeches five or six years ago. he said
the time had come when every Union
soldier ought to draw a pension, whethIer
disabled or not. Now when these
fellpws of the Moundsvllle 0. A. R. post
and those who were urging them on.
and running around working ngalns:
j Governor Atkinson, where was he? At
Columbus, Ohio, with his staff to bring
the reunion to Wheeling. Me spoke for
over an hour to 5,000 people on the heroism
of the soldier. And vet these fallows
of the Moundsvllle O. A. R. post
pnssed resolutions denouncing him.
The soldier element as a mass will
denounce in the plainest of terms the
conduct of the Moundsvllle G. A. R
post. Also the similar conduct of Rend
G. A. R. po??t of Gnfton. in denouncing
Senator Klklns and Representative
Dayton. Suppose Atkinson, Klkins
Dayton ami Dovener should notice thllittle
work.to whom wouldthesoldler element
turn for better friends? They hnvr
none. No one would take up theii
cause for fear of similar treatment
The soldiers will pay no attention tc
this Clique.
The G. A. R men nnd soldiers ol
West Virginia will not stand mute wher
their best nnd truest friend. Governoi
Atkinson is nttacked and denounced
nnd for what? The governoi
has now no government appointments
to make; they alone resi
with Tnptain Dovener. As far n?
Moundsvllle |? concerned the directori
of the penitentiary make nil appoint
ments there. The governor cannot ant
would not think of trying to urge thl/
or any state board to favor any man.
T have a letter from the governor, If
which he promised no man, nor woiih
not compromise himself in such a man
tier with any l?oard for any man. Ii
would not be good policy on his pnrt
and a person with a grain of sense wll
admit It.
Consequently, the soldiers nnd theii
friends will now do all In their power
nnd heyond doubt succeed in defeatInf
the governor'* enemies who are work
Inn this game to oppose him for th<
United Htntes senate. They will sent
hlrn, their bent and truest friend, to tin
senate a* sure as he lives. If for no oth
er purpose than to show him thai hi I
loyalty to them Is appreciated and tha
a good, honest, true man should no
be abused nnd wronged.
Not a one or two year soldier.

The recovery In prices which began
yesterday was continued to-day during
the earlier part of the session 4)f the
stock exchange and the advance of
prices of all stocks was apparently in
full force again until the afternoon,
when the support seemed to be withdrawn
from the market and prices fell
away to a general level below last
night's close. The rise was stimulated
by the announcement that a local bank
hnd engaged 51.000,000 in gold in France
for import to this country, making a
total with yesterday's engagement of
J2,500.000 gold due to arrive. Receipts of
gold reported from Han Francisco as arriving
there from Australia also helped
iijc recovery, i lie u? nun m uic mum
of England In advancing Us rate of discount
Vfc per cent to 2,,fc per cent, was
anticipated In view of the continued
depletion of its gold holding* nnd the
additional strength of yesterday's withdrawal
for shipment to this country.
Yesterday's rise in prices had stimulated
the placing of some outside orders
with commission houses nnd their execution
was the sustaining factor during
the morning. The strength of Sugar
which rose nearly four points on the
reported extension of the treasury department
to apply the countervailing
duty on "Dutch refined sugars," helped
along the rise. There was support afforded
the market all through by heavy
buying of some of the hull operators,
who have been conspicuous In the recent
rise. The effect of the gold Import
movement was largely dissipated durImr
the day by a skepticism as to Its
, natural character. The exchange bankers
who usually handle the movement
of gold, both import and export, were
unanimous In the opinion that at the
ruling rate of sterling nnd continental
, exchange here and of gold in London
and Paris, there was no profit in the
Importation of gold and the figures of
most of them would indicate fjulte a
heavy loss on the operation. Much curiosity
was expressed an to the Identity
of the clients for whom the hanks are
making the Importation and the opinion
was quite freely expressed that the operation
was designed %entirely to Influence
the price of stocks. The failure
of the exchange market to hat den under
the announcement was quite noticeable.
Equally so was the continued
firmness of rates for rail money, which
I became pretty well established on the
, basis of .'I per cent. As these conditions
became more clearly defined the upward
i movement of prices became checked
r and there was periods of dullness fol1
lowed by a steady decline to the close,
the upward course of the morning being
almost exactly retraced In the afternoon.
so that the net changes for the

CHIVAQO?Tho wheat market seemed
to have been played with by the
bull clique to-day. Shorts started In t<
rover, had to bid prices up l^c be fori'
they were filled up. Then heavy offer*
broke the price to a point %c below
yesterday's close. December closed at n
V4?%c decline. A weakening factor wu?
the widening of May discount. Corn
followed wheat and closed 9??>Hc lower.
Oats closed a shade lower and provisions
declined 6?7%c.
Wheat at the Immediate opening wai
easy. Curb prices were Inclined tc
weakness on account of a rather sharp
decline at Paris, but the higher quotations
from Liverpool caused the market
to turn strong at once. December,
which closed yesterday at l?2^c, opened
to-day at irom to y-VfcC. nnoru
started Tor cover but ran up against u
snag in the shape of scarcity of offerings,
t ho price being hoisted to 91%c before
any wheat of consequence came on
the market. The northwest receipt?
were again heavy and that caused holders
to exercise caution so that when
the price had risen to 98*40 plenty of
wheat showing a profit was unloaded.
The receipts at Minneapolis and Duluth
were 1,1.1.1 cars compured with 901 n
week ago. and 80(1 the correspond!?^
day of the year before. Thos?? cities,
however, are still paying 2c to 2>4c premium
for Immediate delivery. Chlcagr
receipts were 2.19 cars, only thirty-three
of which wore contract. The quantity
inspected out of store was 95,185 bushel*.
The previously exploded rumor
that Russia Intended prohibiting the
export of wheat was revived ana In
alout the time closing Paris cable?
were received, showing n complete recovery
from the early d"cllne. This sent
December skyward again, the "price
climbing with hardly a halt to IKl^c. At
that price n big trade was done, large
quantities of wheat boin? dumped on
the market The offerings wore readily
absorbed for a tlmo. but In the end the
weight proved greater than the market
rould boar, the market becoming quite
weak when explicit denials of the Ttus.?lnn
reports were received. A notice,
nble feature during the advance was
the refusal of May to respond except in
an extremely u:nvllling and backward
fashion. When December was readily
brlniMng 9l*ic, the May delivery barely
touched 91 Tic, and a house with close
Liverpool connections sa'd they had
liberal sollinc orders from the latter
place for May delivery. Export ctenrnnces
of win at and flour from Atlantic
ports were equal to 440.000 bu-hols. Th?
receipts for the day at the four principal
outside winter wheat marketsKansas
City, St. I/mis, Toledo and Detroit?were
only 182,000 bushels out o(
the total primary market receipt*
which amounted to 1,276,00ft bushels.

The market averaged firm all forenoon,

kept strong Toward the end, however,
when wheat commencod to slip, corn
followed very willingly. Receipts were
4R5 cars. Atlantic exports were 343,591
bushels. There were claims of accumulation
of stocks at eastern points. Thi
shipping demand was slow. December
ranged from flljfcc to .TOtyc, closing %?
^c lower, at .loftifrxotif.
Oats were steady, up to the Inst hour
of trading. Then that market struck n
slippery place, too, and dropped vltli
the rest of the markets. There was ar
excellent shipping demand, which wa?
mainly responsible for the buoyanc>
displayed. Sympathy with wheat am1
corn caused the decline. Receipts were
