To-DayElection. *
To-day tho people of Wheeling wl!
vote for or against the proposition to re
fund tho debt of the city. Tho matte
has been under discussion through th
newspapers and jimong the voters fo
several weeks, and It is presumed tho
tho public, or at least a large portion (
It, te well posted upon the purpose, th
necessity and the promised benefits c
the ordinance.
It Is a simple busluess question to b
decided to-day, and whether the pla
proposed is accepted or rejected, th
campaign will not have1 been in vain 1

history and policies of the clt
have been brought out, citizens have be
come more familiar with things whlc
concern them as tax-payers.
In voting to-day only ttyi city's we:
fare should be taken into consideration
and not politics. Unfortuntutcly, pol
tics was Injected Into the dlscuesioi
more or lo?3, by the course of the oppc
nents of the ordinance In impugning tfc
motives of tho promoters of the plan, an
'' in making the unju?t and totally absur
charge of extravagance against the clt
These charges have all been answern
those who made them have been repea
cdly challenged to poin to one single itcj
of pubHo expenditure that was unnecef
?jary and they have remained silent.
l^verything that could be thought <
has been brought to bear to defeat tl
ardinance, but not one logical ^rgumei
against It has been adduced. Party pr
Judlce and demagogic misrepresentation
have been indulged In. Argument? fa

Either the ordinance is a good thin
or a bad thing. Either it is better to e

There 1a no party question Involved,
is a question purely and simply

It requires a Vhrce-fifths vote to ad(

o The Charleston Dally Gazette, the :
f. Democratic organ of the southern part of
I- the state, since it passed into the hands ,1
of the new management In the Interests m
P of Coi. MoGraw's candidacy for the
United States senate, lias developed a th
l3 pouching devotion to the colored voters of Jal
ly West Virginia. Like Johnny McLean's ln
organs and managers over in Ohio dur- re'
8 ing the campaign Just closed, its great
t warm Democratic heart -bleeds over the ^
*u wrongs of the colored man at the hands hJ
Of the Republican party. The Demo- ^
e- i ratic party has always been the only re
it friend of the negro, and tt gave him all ^
the civil rights he ever enjoyed, accordLs
ing to the logic of this Democratic or- jK
t- gan, while the Republican party never j
5a did anything forjihn. )
j? Now this Democratio organ, like those - .
^ over'in Ohio, is moved in the depths of its th
_ neari wiwi companion lor uie coiorqa m*
voter, and opens wide ltd arms to wel- ey
0 come him Into the Democratic fold, for pe
^ what? Why, to give him office of course, a\
office until he can't rest.* "White Demo- br
crats do not care for the offices, anyhow;
it.i & personal sacrifice for a Democrat to
11 accept an office; he only takes it as a pa- ^
triotlc duty he owes his country.
But this Democratic Gazette sees a l)U
way out of the ofllce-hal^lng embarrass- 011
m6nt for the long self-sacrificing patri- 1,0
ots. "Here," it, In effect, tells the ooior- At
ed voters of the atate, "you have been
if voting the Republican ticket for yearn, j)n
0 and they haven't been giving: you as
many of the offices as you ure entitled to. "ffa
True, for the first time in the history of tj,
the state, a colored clerk, a bright, lnt$l- jn|
e llgent man, who has won lfis spurs, holds
,i a good portion in the state house; others
are members of state boards of public da
c Institutions, and still others have been eei
11 appointed to various positions, and In tei
g Washington they are found In governi
ment employ on every*side; but this will
3 not do. Why doesn't the Republican (
party make congressmen and senators of
J you? Why doesn't the governor appoint jj(
you as members of his staff? They are al
h ungrateful. You should Join the Demo- or
cratlo party, which had always loved g0
1 you with fluchlntenab devotion and will ve
give you anything you ask for. Demo- C?<
*' crats do not want offices and they ^
I- will just fall over each other to tender
i, you tho places. They are dying to see ol;
colored men's faccs Ir. the public offices. Jji<
You know tho Democratic party always al|
was that way, even If colored postmaa- in
1(1 tors appointed by President McKInley In ur
d the south are shot down on the street for Jj*
y daring to accept the places." ftr
Perhaps the editor of the Gazette, be- tit
irig a comparative stranger in the state, ^
' doesn't know that only a little more than gt
four years ago the Democratic state
in committee was distributing throughout
}. certain portions of West Virginia enor- [J]
mou3 inters on which was a large pic- at.
ture. almost life-size, representing a col- in
orcd*school teacher with a most brutal ftF
.... ._ . al.
?w countenance ucaunj, a. wnue cnuu, ana
it under It was the legend In forming nn in- to
credulous public that If a Republican G'
state adminstrlatiori should ^be elected, Rj
13 We?C Virginia would . havk "mixed de
v~ schools," and white children would be
of taught by negro teachers. fio
re Never, not even immediately after the fc,e
^ war, was there a more despicable at- la
tempt made to create a nice prejudice
among the whites in the southern portion jB
of this state than there was no longer ago fo
at than 1892. If tin edltor.of tho Gazette of
lg will make some inquiries ho will learn
the truth of this statement, and tinder- tli
1 stand that the colored peoplb1 of "West T1
:e> Virginia have not forgotten it.
ig, This revolt against Republicanism, c|
X- which the Gazette seems to think it is tr
n(j commissioned to stir up among the col- o*
ored voters of West Virginia, will fail, as 0j
10 a similar effort in Ohio failed only tills m
year. All the Democijatio machinery V
de was put In motion In that strut*, and it H(:
n. was heralded that the revolt of the color- ^
t? c(* votcr3 was unprecedented. Conven- sn
tlons were lield, and colored orators were 1?
,1C employed to tell the colored voters that [J|
he the Republican party was their worst jn
Ise enemy. The result was' that the negro
movement received.but 480 of the U5.000
colored votes In Ohio. ,)']
nt '
Seriously speaking, suppose for the. Li
n" sake of argument, the colored vote In P(
ey West Virginia has not received a full "j
measure of recognition, will the Gazette 111
or point out to the colored people what they cli
might expect in ^hls respect if theV
rJ" should In a body desert'thc Republican
party? Would the Dajnocracy do for Is
of the colored voter what thj? Gazette claims, 11 ^
ir,. the Republican party has not done?
,j{i ] Would the Democracy guarantee all that \\
the Gatettc HUggest* should he* done by
cs' tho Republican parly? t)o>s the Gazette '!
nd believe that It would be folse for a Democratic
convention to pledge thin recognltlon
in ltn platform? til
, ^ Dock the Gazette believe, In view of ^
the fhcldent flbovo referred to, that the **
a" Intelligent colored people could I" de- fji

A staff correspondent of the Pitts- l'!,e

from Charleston as follows: k i
With the remark that ho believed in ?m
being conservative, Governor Atkinson cut
went over the list of counties which ho on
wub positive the Republicans would Tb
carry for the legislature next year. The rfr-i
list was examined by Secretary of State SOr
Dawson, who is also the Republican on
state chairman, and Inspector Iiooton, pUl
of the poetofflce department, who was
formerly located in Pittsburgh. They
made very few changes. j|C
Under the new apportionment the
general assembly will consist ol ninety- q
uiKMi inemuers, seventy-two in tlio ^
house of delegates and twenty-six in
the state senate. In the last legislature UI
the Republicans had a good working
According !o Governor Atkinson tho Put
counties that will surely elect Republicans
to the house of delegates, which n
corresponds to the house of representatlves
In Pennsylvania, are: Berkeley 1, ]?!,,
Doddridge 1, Fayette 2, Harrison 2,
Jackson 2, Kanawha 4, Marshall 2, Mason
2, Mineral 1, Monongalia I, Morgan
1, Ohio, In which Wheeling I* located, !, a
Preston 2, Putnam Ritchie 1, Taylor 1, lali
Upshur 1 and Wood 3, a total of 32. St.
Legislative district tickets, composed
of tnoro than one county where the population
is sparse, that the governor
thinks are certainly Repuhllcun are: Am
Hancock and Rrooke 1, Grant and Hardy
1, McDowell and Wyoming 1, which, j,
added to the above, would muke 3ii, or .
2 short of a majority In the house; but
the Republicans are confident that they teei
will do better than uidke It a tlo in the fou
house with the Domocrdcy. Lincoln In
pretty certain to go Republican. Cabell '
county used to be one of the worst Dem- ^b
ocratlc sections In the state. The Hun- An"
tlngton ring did very effective work, euC
but that machine bus been smashed. En,
Cabell's two legislators are marked citj
doubtful, but Chairman Dawson thinks far
that by hard work the county can bo T{(V
captured. Marlon Is one of the hardest Liv
counties to figure on. Little can be told Sur
about It In advance. It Ih as liable to Noi
go Democratic uh Republican. *,"?
The doubtful legislative districts and
counties ure Boone, Cabell. Marlon, paj
Pleasants, Wirt, Lincoln, Tyler and ]mi
Wetzel, Lewis and Webster, a total of Oal
eleven. Of these the Republicans carried Sco
five in the last election and three in 1894. Noi
The Republicans have walked away Jj'J
with Cabell, Lincoln. Pleasunts and tho jj0
Tyler-Wetzel district. Speaking of the j^r
doubtful contests Governor Atkinson Loi
"I am satisfied that we will carry
three of them and probably five. If wo T
get only three, we would have a major- her
ity of one in the house of delegates. We dep
have eloven hold-over Republican sena- niv
tors, und if wo elect nine, as 1 think wo los<
will, it would give us twenty in tho ]an
senate to six for the Democrats. Wo ass
should not have less than twenty-ono on
Joint ballot."
The senatorial districts marked surely
Republican, are the First, Hancock, y
Brooke and Ohio counties; Second, Marshall,
Marlon and Wetzel; Third, Tyler,
Harrison, Doddridge and Ritchie; Fifth, n'P
Mason, Jackson and Roane; Seventh, Mo
Logon, Mingo. Wyoming, MoDowcIl, _rfl
Mercer and Raleigh; Eighth, Fayette, ,
Summers, Monroe. Greenbrier and Po- or '
eahontas; Ninth, Nicholas, Boone, Ka- eC >

State Chairman DawSon thinks the a
Eighth district Is very doubtful, thougtt >* (
iho Tipniihllr*n.nH have carried it twice, .tin
Representative Hunt, in chatting about >'at
the legislature, said: "The Republicans gin
will have to bo very careful not to mako elei
mistakes. Atkinson Is tho first Repub- n e
llcan governor for twenty-live yearn, the
and naturally the boys were hungry for the
office. It wns a hard thing to dlstrlb- tint
uto the patronage to satisfy all the np- hir
pllcants, and some of them were disap- chi
painted and are very sore. My expert- ty i
enco with this class i^that thoy can be ed
placated, but they can cause a great cot
deal of annoyance." pai
From this cursory review of West Vlr- of
glnla tho conclusion Is reached that the ore
Republicans stand a good chance of
holding their advantage and electing
tho next legislature. At least their n
prospects aro brighter than for tho .
hopelessly divided Rourbons. Another J "
Republican senator from West Virginia r"
would relieve the party from tho thral- "'lr
dom of the Populist minority in tho
American house of lords.
