TrldelpUla District llepablt* 1* Arben*, DloCay and McLuro Matte 8piechcn, ami Others followed. The Republicans of Trladelphla district held a rousing meeting at the Elm Grove town hall last night. Every seat in the hall was taken, and without exOption every one In the large audience I B was a voter. Tho principal speaker was Mr. John Arbenz, jr., of Pleasant Valley, - a student In the University of Michigan [ law school, and Mr. Arbenz did himself p proud. The other speaker scheduled, f Prosecuting Attorney Thomas J. Parsons, of Moundsville, was unable to be present. fe But there was a whole grist of speakers, and the crowd apparently couldn't get enough of sound Republican doctrine, and no speaker ever had a more ! attentive audience. In addition to Mr. Arbenz, Hon. Joseph C. Brady, Harry W. McLure, Ralph McCoy, Lester Smith I * and Hugh $L Herv'ey made speeches, L ' ?11 nikinli nmrft if.il> maoIvmI Harrtf . ?J? VU. nii.VH ,.v.. - ? r McLure made an especially good Impression, and at the close of the meeting the TrJadelphla stalwarts begged' of him to come back again. He is winning renown aa a campaign stumper. The campaign thia yeax i? novel In more than one respect, but chiefly in the fact that there are no issues to discus*. I The Democrats have no issue to present. exccpt a weak attempt at finding fault | with the conduct uf the war. The apeakera at Elm Grove las' night cautioned Republicans against being over M confident of succeas at the polls in November, because there had been big majorities two years ago; the Democrats were making a still hunt, therefore it behooved the Republicana to get out the votea. Indifference and overconfldence were two ains Republicans must beware of, argued every speaker. The meeting opened at 8 o'clock, being called to order by Committeeman F. C. Bade. Dr. Carter nominated Hon. J. C. Brady as chairman of the meeting, and the nomination was made unanimous. In assuming the chair, Mr. Brady briefly 1 Bummea up(wuin iu? ajiku??,i?u should consider this campaign. Mr. Brady emphasized the necessity of returning a Republican Congress, and coming nearer home he touched a vital spot when he recalled a speech he had made in Elm Grove two yearn ago; for said Mr. Brady, "Two years ago many of you miners. I see before me, were getting 46 cents a ton for the coal you dug at the mine in this town, and only worki" log two or three days a week. Now, you get 60 cents a ton and you haven't lost a day for a year." At this juncture the hall rang with applause. The Unit speaker was'Mr. Arbenz, and *? ?wi ? aiimni trlumDh In his debut IW DWICU - ....... ... on the political rostrum. Mr. Arbenz traced the Republican party from Its inception to Its present condition, and he eloquently commented on the wise laws enacted by Republican administrations. He said that the Dcmociats, at least some of them, had argued against the United States retaining possession 0f the Philippines, Ladrones, Carolines, Porto Rico, In brief. In holding any possessions distant from this country proper. But, argued Mr. Arbenz, since Spain couldn't give a cash Indemnity, the next best thing to do was to hold the ' territory seized In war. Mr. Arbenz furthrr cited the plati forme adopted by the Democratic conventions of Ohio and other states, which supported the annexation of Hawaii, both as "a commercial advantage and n military necessity." In paying tribute to President McKinley, Mr. Arbenz was particularly eloquent and effective, nnd said he, "even Europe has paid tribute to that peerless chief and typical American, William McKinley." Mr. Arbenz bad an exhaustive and logical argument, and In conclusion, he predictor! n Hood of prosperity In 1899 that would reach the hlgh^ water mark of 1892 Chairman Bra ay, auer m,. clo?ed, said toe had cnjoyrd Mr. Arbeas't peech a* ho knew all hl? audience had. Mr. Brady then happily remarked that Ince they toad listened to the "young man," they would bo favored by one of the "old men." Ho called on Mr. Harry McLure. who was warmly applauded an fie ascended the platform. Mr. McLure waa In good form. He opened with a new version of Mary's little lamb, and Its recital otught the crowd. Harry drifted Into a morn serious vein later, and said tnat whllo he had never made a political speech, ho felt proud to be on a ticket which was headed by two such dl?tln#ul*hed eltijsens fia Hon. Nelson E. Whftaker and Captain Jl. R Dovener. Mr. McLuro paid Captain Dovener sp!*u'dld tributes for his work Is Congress, a.id there wore cheers wher? the speaker recounted the captain's efforts to secure the election of Hon. W. P. Hubbard, when he lost the conffrc-ffslonal nomination. Th?n thcro came time when Captain Dovener wn? nominated, and he nucceMfully trimmed John 0. Pendleton, John A. Howard and Col. W W. Arnett. What the gallant captain would do to Jackson V. Blair, said Mr. McLure, would be something awful. Continuing, Mr. McLore ?ald he waa exceedingly sorry when he picked up a paper the other day. to discover that his old friend, John Waterhouse had consented to become a lamb for the slaughter. "Well," remarked' the gonial Harry, aaumlng his most serious air. "what Nelson Whltaker will do to him will be tt-pleniy." (cheers.) Turning to the legislative ticket. Mr. McLure kept his audience roaring by his reference* to the Regteter. "the paper with the greatest circulation In the United States." Mr. McLure reviewed the Democratic legislative ticket, stating under what great straits the Democrats labored to get four men to run. One of them. Rev. J. R. Hlssom. wasn't known to half a dozen men in the convention. which nominated him, but the report chat he had a bar'l carried the day. The Republicans this year shouldn't ue too comment <jl suci^-nts, uu iucic was danger of over-confidence, said the speaker, and Mr. McLure asked the Triadelphia Republicans to get out every vote, and "root" long and hard for their prides, Legislative candidate, Ralph McCoy,and County Commissioner candidate, John C. McCurdy.. .There was no mistaking the sentiment of approval to these remarks, for every man In the crowd cheered for several minutes. Mr. McLure told a good story on a colored individual before concluding, and his address throughout was a corker. He's got Trladelphla on his staff forever more. Chairman Brady next introduced Mr. Ralph McCoy, who made a brief address. practical and to the point, and he struck home all along the line. Mr. McCoy bi?gan "by saying that the Democrats had no issue this campaign, except that there had been a war. He called attention to the fact that during the paw few years the Elm Grove miners in common with other miners in West Virginia, had received sn increase of wages. In Wheeling, the potters were given back the wages paid them prior to the Wilson-Gorman bill's passage. Further along, Mr. McCoy denied that he was pledged to support any particu- j lar candidate for the United States senate. Mr. McCoy believed the Republican party would elect Its whole ticket. The Republican party was the party of the people; it believed In free schools and free Institutions, tout not m rree iraac; it believed In a good day's wages for a day's work, and all wages to be paid In 100-cent dollars. Mr. McCoy made a good speech, and he was frequently Interrupted by applause, and following his remarks were calls for John McCurdy and George Biggs, candidate for county superintendent of schools, but absence and baahfulness prevented *thelr appearance. Next Lester Smith, the popular Wheeling & Elm Qrovc conductor, was called on. Lester wasn't quite as bashful as a school girl, but It took considerable coaxing to induce- hlin to make a "spiel." Finally, the crowd's cheering and yelling for "Smith! Lester Smith!" was more than human nature coulil withstand, and Lester caved. He spoke chiefly In support of Mr. McCurdy for county commissioner, telling the Trladelphla voters that It would take earnest work at the polls, for George Woods, the Democratic nominee, - - * ?- - J -lUn Ar was doing considerable nuauiuB. ..... Smith argued for a long pull and a. strong pull, there was enough Republican votes to carry the district, but there Is danger in overconfidence. Mr. Fred C. Bade and Mr. Hugh M. Hervey were the next speakers, and they also cautioned Republicans against overconfidence. The crowd couldn't get too much of good Republican doctrine, and every word was drunk in. In putting the motion to adjourn Chairman Brady got off a good thing, when he said that all Europe would think America had disgraced itself if It elected a Democratic Congress, In view of the necessity of upholding the President. "There'll be no Democratic congressman from this district," yelled an old farmer. After cheers for the whole ticket, the meeting closed. CALDWELL AT MOUHDSVILLE. A Good Meeting Helil La at Night at the !U?rehnll Co art Hour. A good meeting thart was fairly well attended was he+d last night id -iiounosvllle, at the court house, and: was addressed by Hon. C. T. Caldwell, of Parkersburg. The chairman of the meeting was Hon. S. R. Hanen, -late speaker of the house of delegates, who made a brief address, in t-he course of which he referred tt> theexceHent record1 of the state administration. He spoke of the improvement in the condition of the state's affairs since the Republicans came into power. He concluded by introducing Mr. CaldweM, who was received with loud applause. Mr. CaidweM opene- y caking attention to ine Importance of Republicans standing by the party and the ticket this fa-W by voting. If there was ever a time for every Republican- to be at the polls and have every Republican, there that time wltt be the eighth day of the | coming November. Over-confidence is something that should not be allowed I to keep the voters away from the polls. | He paid a glowing tribute- to the administration of President McKlnley, and j every mention of the President was- re- ; ceived with enthusiasm that showed j how hearty ar.d> sincere is the admira- i tion felt for the nation's chief executive, an admiration that has increased and extenued beyond party lines during the past eight months. Referring to the war, he paid a deserved tribute to the soldiers, both regulars and1 volunteers, who hart addeo lustre to American arms in the Spanish war. In this connection he said that the only Issue (as the Democracy wou-ld have it) Is that the soldier has been sick. He had heard of Hadway's Heady Relief being used to euro the soldiers, but he had never known before that there was a sure cure?a panacea for al> ailment#?which was to send Democrats to Congress and to the legislaturo. Referring to the silver issue, he called attention to the fact that the Democracy i? now divided on silver, some of the states failing- this year to endorse the Chicago platform.

Owing to the big expense attached to drilling, very few operators have gone up against that country, except the larger concerns. The Carter Oil Company, however, has tackled It and with gratifying results. On the east side of the northeast extension of the Campbell's Run development, this company has drilled la its test well on the Ewlng Heirs' farm and have a producer that started at ten barrels an hour. The location Is Ave hundred feet | east of the South Penn's producer on the Eakln farm.

This is regarded as an important test for that territory. There has been some speculation as to what the Buffalo Creek territory would develop into since the gusher on the Marshall farm was drilled in some two months ago. The No. 2 on me rarrcame in a imriy uurrei pjuducer and was something of a disappointment alongside of the Marshall. It has been -the opinion of some that the Marshall well Is nothing more than a freak, notwithstanding its good staying qualities. In the deep sand territory at Stringtown, the South Penn OH Company has completed its No. 9, A. D. Lemosters. and has an elghty-flve barrel producer. No. 5, Enoch Mclntyre, In the same locality, Is good for thirty-five barrels a day.

AMUSEMENTS. Nearly every man and certainly every worpan, to pay nothing of t'hc children, have wished at some period during the post six months that they couM go to and front, and share the dangers and I glory of the war with Spain, and now that peace is at hand1 and* no chance for their patriotic desire? to be fulfilled, j they wlM be obliged to content them- j selves with reading of the thrilling j events that occurred In Cuba, or witnessing some of the many exhibitions that incorporate ouf soldiers' and sail- ! ore* achievements during tho post four months. A production which will appeal strongly is Paul Gftmore's historic and romantic drama, "The Dawn of Freedom." The story U? based upon actual facts, and presents quite an accurate history of the entire Cuban question, commencing at tlhe uprising of an oppressed people and following to its logical and actual cllmaac the surrender oC Santiago and- the triumph of American urrrw Hnlh nnvflJ nrvli mdlitflrv enimire meets form part of the scenic and spectacular effects, and over 150 r*eoplo are required (luring the progress of the play.
