The McLurc House Will I.ikcly
l'ass Into the Hands o!
To-day, n Deal to thai Effect now Be*
fug in Process or Consummation.
Tliey Will Make Extensive Improvements,
Including the Adding of Another
Story?Architects "Working on
Plans or the Improvements.
The McLure House will probably
r change hands to-day, Thompson &
Brown retiring from the management
In favor of Messrs. Harry, W. and BerInie
S. McLure, who are the owners of
the building. The lease on the building
held by the present proprietors does not
expire until Augustl, 1S99, but if the
deal goes through the lease will be can
celled to take effect at^once.
The negotiations were in progress
yesterday, but the deal was not consummated,
owing to certain formalities
to be gone through with by Thompson
& Drown, which had not been entirely
completed last night, Including the settlement
of all outstanding claims held
against the hotel. A number of those
r claims were settled yesterday, and the
few remaining will be settled to-day, afJ
ter which it Is likely the McLures will
acquire the hotel again.
The Messrs. McLure Intend to make
' extensive improvements to the building.
An additional story is contemplated,
which will give thirty-four additional
rooms, including several very largo and
well lighted sample rooms of which
there is a scarcity now. The exterior Is
to be remodeled and when the Improvements
along this line are completed the
outside of the hotel will have an entirely
different appearance?In fact it will
have the appearance of a madern structure.
A feature will be several bay
windows on the top floor and a mansard
They also expect to make fully as extensive
Improvements on the hotel's In
I terlor. All the modern conveniences
are to be introduced, and the standard
of the hotel will be as high as Wheeling
can afford. The rates will likely be
from ?2 to $3 50 a day.
The plans for the improvements are
being completed this week by Messrs.
Franzbeim, Giesey & Farls, and just ns
soon as the deal for the transfer of the
hotel is consummated work on the improvements
will begin.
The reappearance of the Messrs. McLure
as hotel proprietors will be hailed
with satisfaction by the traveling pubj;
lie, with whom they have always stood
in high esteem. Th<*y intend to
merit generous patronage by a high
standard of service.
Yesterday, it is learned, the present
proprlet6rs of the hotel notiiied the
boarders that they would close the establishment
this evening, and It Is understood
the hotel will remain closed
until the McLures have made the extensive
improvements outlined above.
: The Statler billiard rooms in the hotel
will be closed, and the tables, are to be
. moved to the Musee building, where the
business will be continued until the
hotel is reopened.
Made in Bclialf of Benighted Lands
by Archdeacon Brady, of Philadelphia?A
Duly to Care For the Less
Fortunate ? The Anglo-Saxon's Su
pre inn cy.
* An eloquent and forceful sermon, Indirectly
appealing for missionary sup'
port, was made at St. Matthew's P. E.
J church last night, by Rev. Cyrus Townsend
Brady, D. D., archdeacon of Penn
sylvanla, and was heard by a large cona
gregatlon. Dr. Brady preached in
Wheeling a year ago. and the favorable
t Impression made then was repeated
i last night.
After emphasizing tho fact that each
one of his hearers was but an infinitesimal
atom of the whole that goes to
make up society and humanity, and in
* illustration of which he used many
r scholarly and effective illustrations. Dr.
Brady urged the necessity and the duty
j of each man and woman to assist their
less fortunate brothers and sisters. Me
\ used the word society In its broadest
sense, and not In a narrow, fashionable
sense, lie believed his hearers represented
the wealth, culture and refinement
of the community in a large
measure, but they still remained the
sons of men, just a part of humanity,
and they should not draw aside from
the poor or the Hlnnlng; they should
rather share the blessings they enjoy
with the needy, and deal gently with
the erring.
The various strata of society were
merged and blended, a mass of moving
atoms, with a distinct tie from the top
* to the bottom, yet hard to define where
' the one stratum began and where another
left off. The human binding tie
was real and natural. It was conceded
that the Anglo-Saxon was supreme
over all other races, and that America
was the favored nation: and
possibly the congregation the speaker
addressed was composed of citizens
' endowed more fortunately than their
neighbors. Dr. Brady ascribed the advantages
of the Anglo-Saxon race over
the Continental races because It sought
to develop th?? Individual at the expense
of tho state, Instead of the state at the
expense of the religion. The Protestant
\ religion was the primary cause for this
In his concluding remarks. Dr. Brady
argued that the sense of individual responsibility
accounted for the success
of the individual, and the nearer to divine
laws civil laws were based, and
mi luuoweu oy tne great mass ot people,
In such gradation they advanced.
The spirit of Christianity was the secret
of Anglo-Saxon supremacy. The Protestant
religion sought to develop character.
This religion gave to Americans
1 their racial, national, social, moral and
Individual pre-eminence. And it Is the
duty of the American people, was the
speaker's concluding thought, to spread
Christianity and civilization based on
It to countries In such need. A man's
salvation depended on his Interest In
behalf of the rest of humanity.
I HAVE been aflllctcd with rheumatism
for fourteen years, and nothing
seemed to give me any relief. I was able
to be around all the time, but constantly
suffering. I had tried everything I
could hear of, and at last was told to
try Chamberlain's I'aln Balm, which I
did, and was Immediately relieved and
In a short time cured. I am happy to
say that It has not since returned.?

that the board of directors of the West

in support of which was passed

This is a mistake, and the ladles

did not desire any remuneration.
