Senator Elkins* Speech.
The splendid crowd of enthusias
tlo Republicans that filled the auditor
ium at Pythian Castle last night, t
hear Senator S. B. Elklns on the ifsue
of the campaign, was not disappointed
for it had the pleasure or listening 10 on
of the best speeches ever delivered b;
the senator in this city. The enthusias
tic approval with which it was received
and the ovation tendered to the senatoi
were evidences that every word uttere
Jitnv/m. the important questions c
v---frhe hour struck home. The senato
v.. never fails to draw a big crowd when h
comes to Wheeling, and it is always a
enthusiastic one.
It is unnecessary to review here th
magnificent speech delivered by Mr. E!
kins, for it is published In full in the re
port of the meeting. No question in thi
campaign was left untouched, and ther
Is in it a vast amount of food for care
ful thought by voters. The strength c
the Republican cause to-day was el<
qucntly and effectively stated, and th
comparison made between Democratl
promises and performances, and Reput
Ucan pledges and accomplishments, wa
the strongest presentation which coul
be made. We commend it to the read
In* of every citizen.
The rally at Pythian Castle ivas one c
the most successful gathering eve
held in the city, aside from Senator E!
kins, who was the principal speake:
Hon. C. L. Weems, of Ohio, and Cor
gressman Dovener, who unexpectedl
dropped in on the meeting, made brl<
speeches, which made everybody fe?
good and stirred up plenty of old tiro
Republican enthusiasm. If we are t
judge from the temper of the audienci
Wheeling Republicans are going to giv
a good account of themselves.
So-Gillci "Imperialism/'
Our Democratic orators are having
great deal to6ay about the "Republics
policy of imperialism," in connectio
with the war settlements, and are hoj
ing to create a feeling against an
policy which tends toward expansion
nilr And pvmi. in manv Ir
stances, of our commercial influence
80 far. In the light of history, wit
which the people of this country ai
familiar, they have met with little eu<
cess, tor they have found in the attemi
to make a party lsaue of these question
not only the record of the Democrat
party against that effort, but Dem(
cratic newspapers obstinately calling a1
tention to the fact. .
The Washington Post, r<fers a ca.<
In point In the interesting coincident
that, on the same morning in which t*
Republican Boston Advertiser predlctc
that "Imperialism." so mis-n:mod.wou!
be "the death'knell of the nepublicu
party," (he Democratic Boston Olol
editorially mowed tnat every pam "e:

States has created "Just such a dlvlslc

This contest, the Globe said, betwec

tinned ever since.
Similar denunciation of the "expat
slon" policy was Indulged In not mar
years ago when the purchase of Alnel

disaster to the republic was predict*
when the Louisiana purchase wan mad

i: was !SVn- that Jmrith Quincy, of
Boston, in a ?pt-.vh in Congress, from
which the Poet quotes, said; "Our imagi- I
nations have beer. accustomed to won- |
Uer after new settlements to the very
ends of the earth." The Boston Globe,
In the article referred to by our Washington
con ternporary, recalls the denunciation
by Quincy of the proposition to
admit to statehood the territory of Or.
le?fis. when he said that It was a "manifest
usurtiatlon of uower." He de
nounced the formation of another atMc
' from rhe Louisiana purchase, as "a
death blow to the constitution," and re.
ferred to the population as "wild men."
The Post says:
There Is 110 country on the globe that B
i is half so distant (ruin the capital of the _
United State* to-day as was the region
; that France beded to our government in th
! 1S03. We know more about the Interior g0
of Africa than* our grandfathers knew of f.
the interior of this continent. A hun- t
dred years hence the arguments that to
are now being submitted against expansion
will appear .is absurd as the
i venerable Qtalncy'd protests appear to w
us.
i History Is only repeating Itself in the ^
. present denunciations that are being in- ^
dulirf.i <n bv those who are trying to ..
! demonstrate that it would not be unwise
for this country to abandon the island ^
possession* of Spain which have come to ^
. us in war. So far they have failed. ^
Object Lesson for Mr. Blair. on
In spite of the effort In this part of the 01
district on the part of the Democratic vc
organs and politicians to keep the free be
silver question In the back-ground in order
to conciliate the sound money Demo- ^
crats who voted against that rank ^
heresy, the organs In other counties and m
the speaker* continue to repeat the absurdities
of 1896, and that, too, in the p
face of the fact that every prophecy ^
then made ha? proven false. The Wes- ^
ton Sentinel, for instance, haa the following
specimen of rankness: "The gold
standard means scarce and dear money,
falling prices, Idleness and starvation
labor." ? Y?
If the editor of this Bryanite organ in
will pay a visit to Wheeling he will note *
how wide of the truth he is. His candi- aj
date for Congress, will, to-night, speak h<
In one of the busiest manufacturing cen- fl<
trcs of West Virginia, in the very m
shadow of the smoke which arises from ai
. great iron and steel Industries, where m
1 BiCuuy employment 10 ucius ti?cu ?
0 workmen, who, in Democratic days,
!. were working on part lime?where, after C(i
1 the Democratic cyclone of 1892, work- a
r men and their families were realizing 11
r the conditions described in the above tr
paragraph from the Weston organ, and Ir
' were receiving aid from the public relief
stations established by the people. 1)1
No such ecenes are witneesed in this
- indutrtrlal community now, nor have ^
they been witnessed elnce that year,
0 though throughout the Cleveland ad3
ministration, and up to the time of the B
'? recovery of confidence after the election
c of two years ago, when the free silver cJ
V agitation received a blow Irom which it
- has not yet recovered, the work on short c)
time continued. The men who are now *?
working full time, and who, during the
il ttorlod mentioned. were in "idleness"
* more than half the time, will have opr
portunlty to hear .Mr. Blair. Mr. Blair,
e if he repeats the speech which was
n heard from him in Wheeling: this week,
in which he rehashed the favorite argu *
ments of the silverlte9 of 1896, will do so
In the light of furnace fires, and in the
- thickness of the smoke from factory
chimneys which were smokeless In those
* days. Under such circumstances s?ch
an assertion as tflat of the Weston orlf
gan will sound strangely out of place.
)- m
e A Congressman's Duty.
Ic In view of Mr. Blair's point that Conj.
gressman Dovener was absent from
s fifty-two roll calls during the last Con(1
Kress, a fact the Democratic candidate
[. doubtless ascertained after a laborious
search of the pages of the Congressional
if Record, we call his attention to the fol r
lowing paragraph from the Washington
|. Post, which ought to know something
r, about congressional matters:
[. "The Post would remark for the beney
fit of some of the v??iers who may be
>f somewhat bewlflY&red, that It Is never
safe to Judge the efficiency of a conie
gressnian by the number of roll calls to
o which he responds. A stick of a conPf
pressman thinks he performs his full
e duty by responding to roll calls."
As we remarked yesterday, Mr. Blair,
in this connection, pledged himself no:
to be absent from roil calls If elected to
* Congress. This means that he conceives
n the only duty of a onngreseman is to sit
n I in his <eat and await roll calls,^snd>ave J
his real work for nom>: one e'se I(i per- /
y form. If Mr. Blair breaks Into Con*f
gress lie will not be long in finding out
some things which he does not appear to
s- know.

"" Tho north gale swayed the towering trees,

by Will eat the apple 'fore tho glass, .
ne Or burn their brown nuts In a grate
el_ And then and there decide their fate.
Or go alone and pull the kale?
Experiment ne'er known to fall.
ne A burst of laughter rang out loud,
.1 And clear from a hilarious crowd
Where sturdy lads and bonny lasses,
x>, Whose clx-ek* tlio red roue huo surpasses,
h? Were gathered In a neighbor's dwelling
"e To celebrate by fortune-telling.
*2*-1 - ninnd and Jennie Gray,
iiL? With Harry Grim and Tom McVey,
Were there and burned their nut* together
, For dearly loved they one another.
The others coupled off by twos.
ho Each lad was privileged one to ohoose.
ar Their sparkling eyes tho tale would tell
an That they enjoyed the fun right well.
But one poor lassie set apart
'th From all the rest with heavy heart,
rk Her troubled bosom rose and fell,
he Sho was the witch's daughter "Nell."
hp Sho had no beao; dared to make no
mashes;
Tho tear drops gathered on her lashes
nu And chased In streams of briny water
is- Adown her cheeks, this witch's daughter.
3*8 What lad In all this sunny land
.. Would ask poor Nellie for her hand?
For all 'twas known her gruesome mother
Would with a curse his wind-pipe smother;
Or with an eldritch screech and howl,
That'd make the very demons scowl,
,r- Turn him Into a horny beast
0f That'd some day grace a tablo feast.
Or to a long-tailed phllla gray
)w Then mount her back and ride away.
Its ?
ue Nell's hair was bright, her eyes were blue,
?.. Full many longed but daro not woo.
So like a flower of sweet perfume,
'n? With tinted petals burst to bloom
he It's petals cleft by nature's hand,
lr- Peered not by any In our land.
h* But dare not pluck It lest ye feel
Tho prick of thorns the buds conceal,

One moment bright then rone for aye.
Poor Nell, the sad and silent guest.
Steals out alone from all the rest;
She'd face the north winds cold and loud
no In preference to that chilly crowd,
h? Whoso mirth ran at a reckless rate,
~ Reminding Nell her lowly state.
The star light like a chain of pearls
Fell on her fair redundant curls.
She ran adown the narrow lane
Into tho arms of some tall swain,
Who clasped her close In mad delight,
Thinking he'd caught a fairy sprite.
But she knew him, 'twas Brutus Bell,
And long she'd loved this laddie well.
She tried to strugglo from his arms.
Crying to him In wild alarm:
"Don't stain your hands, dear Brutus
Bell,
Clasping the witch's daughter Nell."
Then like a flash a carmine tide
Hushed o'er hor face. Its fairness dyed.
8ho blushed for shame In being bold?
Unthoughtedly her love she'd told.
rHspleasuro ho did not express.
But drew her closer to his b*ea*t.
And said: "I love you, bonny Nell.
And oft I've longed this tale to tell;
But modest youth forbade me do it.
And people said I'd live to rue It
If e'er I wed the witch's daughter.
Who turns the blood of men to water.
And In the stream her witch crafts float;
But If she'd turn me to a goat.
Or to the hunter's straight-eared game,
I cruess I'd love you Just the same.
We'll go through sun or stormy weather,
Adown the lane of life togother;
Our Joy e'en witches will confess."
So modest_Nell_le told him "Yes."
