i IT IS EVERYWHERE.
!AI1 Around, on all Sides can be Seen the Evidences ot . THE REVIVAL OF PROSPERITY. | Potteries, Glass Houses, Iron and Steel Mills, the Stores ALL SHOW THE IMPROVEMENT I THAT HAS COME TO INDUSTRIAL AND COMMERCIAL WHEELING i SINCE THE ENACTMENT OF A SOUND TARIFF LAW AND THE ASSURANCE OF A SOUND CURRENCY-OCTOBER THE BEST MOJMTH IN HISTORY OF THE WHEELING POTTERY?A SHOWING OF FACTS THAT BRINGS PROSPERITY HOME TO EVERY READER. F\>ur, three, even two years ago, the I streets of Wheeling were throngeu witn idle men, men whose Idleness was enforced by the ecoiumilc conditions following the election of a Democratic President and Congress, brought about directly by the enactment of tariff legislation that was as much for the Interest and well being of the manufacturers and worklngrcren of Europe as It was for the disadvantage and adv.erslty of the g? manufacturers and employes In Industrial America. These facts cannot be successfully controverted. The WilsonIan era of free soup houses, low tariff, " - smokeless factory chimneys and general stagnation in trade is too fresh in the ^ minds of the people of this community F;. to make a denial anything but reckless g Juggling with the truth. f It isn't necessary to tell the people of t '. Wheeling that this era of Democratic !; adversity has passed away. Perhaps it ^ isn't necessary to add that it has passed away for reasons at once logical and i reasonable. Such a great and portenI tious economic change for the better has ' come through the enactment of tariff r legislation by the Republican party, leglslation that tvas inspired by the desire to better the condition of American | workingmen. Th^Dlngley bill is directly responsible for this transition from adversity to prosperity; confidence, the I twin brother of prosperity, came with - the enactment ot the Dingley bill and I with the assurance that there would be ; no juggling with the currency. D?uger of cho .Uotucnt. Everybody desires to do everything j.: possible to make the present era of In nnl 1 k?inn> narmnnanr Mfth/vlv | . UUDUIUI Wtn ULlllh JICiUIBUWHM .wwwx, wants to return to the dark dtya of '93. '94, '95 and even of '96. But some people ? forget even In so short a time the author of their past misfortunes as well as the instrumentality that figured in the restoration of better times. Therein lies the danger of the moment, a.nd the Intelligencer would respectfully submit to the voters of this county that a vote for N the Democratio candidates Is not following up the work that was so well "begun 1 In the fall election of 1894, continued in 1896, and which ought to be endorsed in 189S. A tariff for revenue only and an unsound currency are as much the Democratic doctrine to-day -os they have been at any time in the past. Wasn't i the election of 1892 an exemplification of the unfitness of the Democratic party to care for the well being of the working people of this country and of this community in particular? Is it not reasonable to presuppose that Democratic success next Tuesday, followed by a greater h victory in 1900, will mean just what it meant In 1890 and 1*92?the enactment of a tariff that will not protect and the substitution of an unsound currency f/?r one that is as good us gold? On the other hand, Republican success means '* Jusi what it meant in 189S, prosperity I for all the people. rro*]??>rltj' U Ilrrr. But some Democratio papers have the temerity to say prosperity is an Illusion; t that It Is an Intangible quantity that really does not exist. and the Register would have the people of this community think that Wheeling does not share In it- No sensible workingman believes such a statement for a minute. He knows that employment was scarce two years ago. and that no able-bodied man to-day finds it difficult to get work. He knows that idle men, anxious for work, ore not gathered daily on the Postoffice corner two deep. He knows that labor is actually scarce in some lines. He knows that new industries are being inaugurated. He knows that he has money to npend now and that he had nohc or little two years ago. He knows that many concerns are unable to keep ; up with their orders. He knows of industrial establishments that are working nigh: and day. He knows that many establishments are enlarging their capacity in preparation for the still better times that will follow the maintenance of confidence by the retention of the Republican party In power. He knows all these things, and above all he ought to know that Democratic success next week means the loss of confidence on the part of capital, without which labor cannot find employment; he knows that capital came out of it# bank vaults after the election of 1896. and that it will go back if next week's election results in Democratic success ana a connequcut lack of confidence. A Khw Kxnntplra. Prosperity has many striking exemplifications in this neighborhood. A fetv of them are mentioned below, and the reader will admit that they would not have followed had Bryanlsm triumphed in 1896. THE RI'JCORD BROKEN*?On Tuesday of this week the Wheeling Pottery shipped more ware than on any other day In Its hlrtory. TOO 31ANY ORDERS?The Wheeling Hinge Company Isn't able to keep up with Its orders. Twice as many m?*n are employed at this plant as found employment two years aso. ALL OVER TIIK "WORLD?The riverside Iron Works U enjoying a fine ?? VArtnr/io? If r<>pplvi>il 11 n onlf?r for several thousand feet of pipe from the Inland of Java. ALL. ARB BUSY?The FlacctM, Flue. cub & Elliott, McMechen and J2xleyWatkln? catsup and preserve plants are doing a record breaking business thin fall. Tne latter firm will erect a live story modern factory building in the J2a*t Knd, wlih an lucrenwd capacity. CAN'T FILL OKDRItX-Two yars ngo the glaaa Industry In this neighborhood was dead. Under the policy of protection It has revived wonderfully. The Central CJla.ss Works, the Crystal Oliuw Works, the Fosrtorla Olass Work*, the BHlalre and WHIsburg factories. all < ->? rinlntr :i rihotuim<>rml]v lariTc bllHl w-hh. The Crystal Is working night and day, and recently aent a consignment of lie wan* t?? Hawaii. ON THE PIPE LINER?Natural g.?* pipe linen are'being constructed from the Tyler county gas floldft to Pittsburgh nml to Canton, (in one labor*!* ure getting |1 W a day and board, and on the other 12 a day wan offered th<* other day. and the contractor* were unable to cure all the men they wanted. THB 8TEAMBOATH - Prosperity means the moving of the flolithcd pro duct. Two years ago. eight steamboat* landed one or more times a week at the port of Wheeling- Now. fourteen steamers are In the local trades, and the fifteenth will be adJ^d In February, These are all jiicket boat*. An extension < ? the public landing i? badly needed through thlp increase in the rivet transportation business. ON TUi: STREET CARS?The Wheeling Railway Company Is carrying more people these days than ever before Its gross earnings for nine months ol the present year increased over *20.00( as compared with last year. The compiny has purchased new cars, heaviei and more powerful motors, has reconstructed many miles of its tracks, ha? spent over *30,000 at it* power ftoua<? anu has acquired the over-the-river lines, This record of enterprise and success Isn't possible when times are had. THIS MEANS SOMETHING?The Fo?torfa Glass Company has called In ft* staff of traveling: men. All the order* that can be filled and more are bad already. A GOOD RECORD?Two years ago the Eagle Glass Company, of WelU'ourg.was a small concern doing a small business. With the return of prosperity this company felt justified In adding to Its capacity until tf?-day It Is one of the largest concerns of its kind In this section. ANOTHER?The revival In the glass Industry means much to Wellsburg. New factories and old ones whose capaity has been Increased mean employment for 500 additional men. ilUKlvs axaie i^auor Luiuniuisioner Barton was recently asked t<? secure a number of laborers for a local concern. The concern was too busy to Jook tor them. IX THE BANKS?The bank* were loath to loan money before the election of 1895. Now what a difference. The banks are looking for people who want money. This is shown in the increase in loans this year, as compared with both 1896 and 1897, amounting to more than $1,000,000. TREBLED?The Frank Glass Company, of Wellsburg, has trebled its capacity. A NEW INDUSTRY?Within a few days the new coke plant of the Riveraide Iron Works will go Into operation. CAME TO WHEELING?Tha McKay Shoe Company, of Boston, has established a shoe nail plant on the South Side, twhinK tirlll fr(v*> nmnlovment to about 100 people. THIS STRIKING?Tumbull & Sons* coal mine near Bellalre, gav? employment to seventeen men one day a week two years age. Now, sixty men are working SEVEN days a week, and the demand would Justify more men being employed If there were room for them in the mine . AGAIN?The Elm Grove coal works ran one-third to one-half time with few men two yearn ago. Now a full force is employed, at an advance in wages amounting to forty per cent. A BIG ONE?The Wheeling Iron and Steel Company has Just completed a new plate mill at its Belmont plant, on the South Side, which will give employment to 200 to 300 additional men. HOUSES ARE SCARCE?Real estate agents say that there is a heavy demand fur house?. Working people are moving Into better homes, a direct result of returned prosperity. Po<?r times mean poorer nomes. in tseuaire xn?* wareuj of houses Is pronounced; tweaty-flve are needed right now. TWICE AS BUSY?The Spears' axle works, at tiie corner of Twenty-seventh and Main etreets, is twice as busy and Impressive a plant as It was two years ago. New quarters have been secured, connected with the old by a bridge, and the employes work every working day in the year, as opposed to the on-and-off schedule in '95 and '96. More men are employed and more business is done at the Spears axle works, which has come to be one of Wheeling's principal industries. INCREASED TRAFFIC?The Wheeling Railway Company's increased traffic to Bemvood has come about through the steady run of the Ben wood mills and the increased number ?>f men employed. One of the company ottlciaJsstated yesterday that Its Benwood business was greater now than at any time since 1892. More cars are lifted 'to carry workingmen, and more worklngtnen ride In the cars. To keep up with the demand this fall, the railway company recently put on extra cars. These cars are run early in the morning and again In the evening from 4 to 6 o-'clock. The cars run to Ben wood and are always crowded with mill men. They stop at the Riverside. THE BUSY LA BELLK?The mwt important plant on the South Side is the La Belle, which of late years has come to the front as a tin maker. The La Belle runs year In and year out and like Tennyson's brook, may go on forever. Even in the dark days of Democratic regime, the La Belle's handsome engines continued to num and whirr, but of course, the number of men was necessarily limited. Ste-adlly forging ahead the La Belle has spread out and out, building additions and Improving its equipments, and to-day there are 300 more hands employed than there were two years ago. Within fourteen months, to be correct, the La Belle h.is built a new skelp mill and a new tin mill, giving employment to 300 additional persons. A shut-down is unknown and non? st ems probable. The La Belle has enjoyed prosperity Indeed, In two years* time. PROSPERITY HERE?Benwood offers a fruitful lleld for the student of Industrial conditions, for it is essentially a mill town. Within the town's limits are the big Riverside steel plant and the Wheeling Steel Works, and upon these inriimtrinK nonrlv everv* Benwood citizen is directly or Indirectly dependent. If you ask the average Inhabitant if times are not better now than two or four years ago, he will Invariably reply In the affirmative, wondering at the same time why you should ask such a question, for It Is .so plain that he who runs may read the handwriting on the wall. THB RIVJ5RSIDK?The Riverside Is the biggest steel plant In the Ohio valley between Pittsburgh and Cincinnati, and It irf growing '-very year. Since 1S!16 the rtrrn h:id added a skelp mill, a bell-weld furnace, and large addition to Its galvanizing department. Improved equipment, and many Improvements have been added, and last but n<?t least by any meana, there it the almost completed coke plant, costing not less than 5500,000. The coke plant has been In course of erection for over a year, and when operated It will not only give employment to many more men, but It will Increase the facilities of the mills U supplies with fur.l Tin. nirtlflv nf exni>ndltnrp4 fnr the coke plont, gkelp mill, bell furnace, etc., for the p.'Mt two years must come close to the $1,000,000 mark. In round numbers there ore employed at the Riverside now, 2.000 men, which is u00 in excess of the number worked two yearn ago. In further proof of better conditions, the men haven't lust an hour in a year through lack of work, while the spring of *90 was disastrous, and August of the same year is known to (he employes an "Ashing time." As one of the men paid yesterday to a reporter, "we often wish we could get a liet!' Democratic times anulii. ho we could go fishing, .lust enough, you know: not the real Democratic times, for w?* had them once and once will do." AT THK WHKRIdNO?Half a mile south of the Riverside stands the WheelIng steel works, presenting the same scene of glowing furnacrs and smokeissuing stacks. The Wheeling is spoki n of in Hon wood as the "lower steel works." from its position in the low-r part of town. The Wheeling's steady run since last fall is almost unprecedented In ltti history. It Is worked to the limit wor-k uft"r week nnd the ''nploy** and merchant* nre e.?rii?equently tlMiikful. Th** mill wan .' hut down for rep.ilm ?n-?st of 1K91. and In (804 I' ? l<ilo % gn at part ??f the <linc. Ther<? was a spurt in the fall .if l?ut after that until tin* fall of '97# tin* Wheeling paper* hml two tnok-In-trade Itftms, which alternated every week. One Item wats i "(he Wheeling ?teW works I? on this week;" the other, "the Wheeling steel i works is off this week." In one of these f years the men worked 100 days. A* they and their families had to live 360 out of thai year every Democratic candidate v;ai rlaught*rr>rl to a finish. Benwood mill men are great fishermen, hut they hadn't a chance last summer to get off more than one week?a striking conr trast to other summers, which were each . one long holiday. The Wheeling's great ' run is destined to continue Indefinitely. > and as slated, the employes and mer chants are "tickled to death." The payroll fof the year in pie aggregate is ahead of any previous year's when the ' mill was Jn its palmiest days?the same 1 being In 'fc:? and '90. THE STOREKEEPERS?Ben wood i storekeepers suffered heavily from bad debts In 189,1-94 and even a year later. > Grocers especially suffered and they lost ' thousands of dollars on account of the > shut down of the mills. They say they are paid promptly now every two weeks, and a Ben wood grocer Jvsterday said that last Saturday's was the best day's 1 business he had enjoyed for years. The county poor orders now are granted to only a fraction, remarked an authority yesterday, compared with the very large number Issued In '9.T. '9< and '95. A GREAT PLANT?Protection to 1 home Industry means expansion at home and contraction abroad. The Aetna-Standard Iron and Steel Works recently acquired the old Junction plant at Mingo Junction, largely Increased Its capacity at the same time spending several hundred thousand dollars, and Is to-day said to be the second largest ' plant of i's kind In the country. ' THE POTTERIES?"If the politicians will let us alone and allow conditions to remain as they are now, I look forward ! to four or Ave years of the best business ever enjoyed In this country." said Pres, ident C. W. Franzhelm. of the Wheeling Pottery, yesterday afternoon. "There has been a great improvement at our plant; we are employing twenty percent more men to-day than we were two 1 years ago, and they are receiving four, teen per cent more wages than they got then. This Is due entirely to the Dingley tariff bill, which has adequately protected American pottery. We shipped more goods on Tuesday than ever before from our pottery. Our prosperity is shared In by all the other potteries of the country. The Imports of foreign made ware during the first eight months of lS98were more than $2,000,000 less than the imports for the same period In the year before, before the new tariff act became effective. While the potteries of this country are all busy, the potteries of England just now are running half time, 'on account of the war* they are saying over there, but really because American pottery in artistic beauty, design and finish is equal to any in the world. OCTOBER. JUST CLOSED. WAS THE BANNER MONTH IN THE HISTORY OF OUR POTTERY, NOT ONLY IN AMOUNT OF PRODUCT. BUT ALSO IN DOLLARS AND CENTS, WHICH MEANS A TREMENDOUS INCREASE IN OUTPUT, FOR PRICKS HAVE DECLINED NOTWITHSTANDING THE HIGHER DITTIES IMPOSED BY THE DINGLEY BILL." CAR WORKS BOOM?The Ensign Car Works, at Huntington, employ 704 men this year against 588 in 1896; built 3,614 cars from November 1, '97 to October 26, *9S, againwt 1,2.14 during the same period in 1896; and paid out in wages in eight month of 189S. J2.10.000, against $172,688 47 during the same period In 1896. TIN PLATE?This fall there is something wrong with our friends, the enemy; formerly It wasn't ft Democratic meeting if something wasn't said about the impossibility to successfully manufacture tin plate In this country. Perhaps the fact that the La. Belle, Laughlln and Aetna-Standard are dally sen ling out thousands of boxes of tin plate, may have something to do with this strange silence on the part of Democratic campaign orator?. Or. possibly, they reserve their tin plate stories for other communities and rely upon the ignorance of people not In touch with this Republican-created Industry which has done so much for Wheeling and vicinity.

In the large hall at Mont de Chnntal. by .the Rev. L. P. Paquln, of Elm Grove. The audience was composed of the faculty and pupils of the academy. The subject was presented in Mfph an attractive manner and so j well Illustrated as to give added rest to | the study of the science. After a few preliminary remark?, he Introduced his subject by calling attenj tlon to the vast horlion of the field of I chemistry; which he represented as the ! eye of the natural sciences. He Illustrated the light thrown by the chemical laboratory on the field ofg olcgy.mlnerology. physics, anatomy, physiology, pathology, and other sciences. He gave un account of the large contributions of chemistry towards the achievement of the objects of many of the arts, su$h as painting, photography and medicine. He gave a description of the vast laboratory of nature, where air, water and the light of the sun ere constantly busy, transforming the soil of the earth Into the sap of vegetables and the blood of animal}1, covering the lawn with its beautiful carpet, adorning the garden nrf.tk Ha rtf flftttv*!**. <?ldthll)JT tbO trees with their green foliage; and he gave an Insight to the active work done in the laboratory of the human body. He then explained the constitution of matter, nature of the molecules and atoms, dwelling at length on the motion of the molecules, their characteristic properties in gases, in liquids and in f SOifdS. He then passed to the atoms, the elementary constituents of the molecule*, explained their unchangeableness and the preservation of their Integrity amidst the uninterrupted series of transformations# of matter to which they have been subjected from the time of their creation. Finally, he called attention to the tremendous energy developed In the combination or disunion of the storms, and exemplified this energy by many facts, especially the force developed by the chemical decomposition of gun powder, which can split rocks asunder and which has lately thrown shells weighing several hundred pounds from the guns of our warships, causing the de| struction of Cervera's fleet. The sub(ject of the next lecture will be "The Chemistry of Water." I INVESTIGATION PROBABLE ' In the Case of the Possible Murder, of Mrs. Huff, of Ben wood. There have been no developments in the Huff mystery, since the Chicago police Identified Huff ?s the original of the photograph sent bj* Rev. Herman Hnase, of this city. Rev. Mr. Haase has Interested himself in the case and he will make an effort to have Mrs. Huff's body exhumed, to ascertain lf"her death was due to poison administered by her husband. Rev. Mr. Haase has Interviewed Prosecuting Attorney Meyer relative to havintr th<? hnrlv cihumoii. but Mr. Meyer I has no Jurisdiction In the case, as Mrs. lluff died in Benwood, therefore Prosecuting: Attorney Parsons, of Marshal! county, will be called on. Although Mrs. Huff has been dead three years, It is said that not enough time has elapsed to prevent analysis of her stomach. so far as tract's of poison nre concerned.
