The Chances tor Wheeling to Secure
a $50,000 Donation
ARE CONSIDERED YERY GOOD.
The Board of Education's Committee
on Public Library Will Take the
Matter up at ita Meeting Thin
.Month-"A True Citizen** Endorsee
the Movement Suggested Through
" w. ..maMiInn mnrln thrnlicrh the In
telligencer early this week by Mr. W. P.
Campbell that Wheeling make an effort
to secure one of the $50,000 public library
contributions being made by the
Pittsburgh millionaire, Andrew Carnegie,
has been well received, and Chairman
Noble, of the board of education's
committee of public library, states that
he will bring the matter up at a meeting
of the committee to be held Tuesday
evening. October 17, and he hopes
to secure definite action looking toward
the making of the effort.
A provision of these donations Is that
the city shall agree to provide 95.000 annually
in support of the library. This
will be easy of fulfillment In Wheeling's
case, as the present library is supported
by annual appropriations of more
than that amount. In addition, it
would be necessary to secure a site for
the building, and this might be done
through popular subscriptions. These
details, though, could be worked out by
the board of education and representa-,
tives of other bodies Including the
chamber of commerce, trades assembly
In this connection the following communication
has been received by the
To the Editor of the Intelligencer.
SIR:?The Idea suggested by Mr. W.
P. Campbell In reference to a Carnegie
library for the city it Wheeling Is a
good one, and there should be more ac
tlve measures taken towards its consummation.
But the amount mentioned
in Monday's Issue of your paper
Is not sufficient for a building that will
be an-ornament to our town and one
that will give the advantages necessary
to lighten the work of the librarian.
Fifty thousand dollars, the amount
given by Mr. Carnegie to Steubenville
and East Liverpool eacn. was in proportion
to the population; but unless
nn amount so much greater In proportion
as the population of our town Is
greater. Is given, no one ought to encourage
the undertaking. We ought to
. As to the expense. Mr. Carnegie in
former donations, has required that $5,000
be given toward the running expense
of the library. Salaries, purchases
of new books, lighting and heating
now cost the city of Wheeling over
55,000 a year. Consequently, there
would be no expense in this regard over
and above present expenses. But there I
will be the necessity of buying a lot
upon which the library building shall
be erected. There are many suitable
lots for this purpose.
Do we need a new home for the
hnrtlra? Yes. The present room Is far '
too small. A population of 35.000 and
seats In tho reading: room for not more !
than twenty-five people, outside of the
places for reading the daily papers, is 1
a monstrous disproportion. But. do
people us<? those twenty-live seats?
Visit the library upon a winter's night
ar,d you will find it crowded. The
Iltt'c feilows whose work at day prohltlts
them from school, visit the library
at night and when it is crowded It
is the duty of the librarian and her attendants
to separate them from their
delights and holy pleasures: for if any
pleasure is holy, reading Is And forced
from the library they do not go
home: for being eager to read they left
home, and there are no books nt home
for them. Thctclass of people who use
the library are not those who have the
pleasure of owning their own books and
periodicals. Two evil results naturally
follow from the exclusion of the boys
from the library: They roam the streets
and they learn to lie. For by telling
the librarian they are fourteen years of
age they are allowed to remain. It Is
a true and praiseworthy desire the boys
have, who rather than be prohibited
from reading, will He about their age.
Of course it is wrong for theni to do so,
nevertheless, a rule of this kind is a
mis-rule. For any one Is capable of
reading as soon as he wants to read.
"It is natural and beautiful that childhood
should enquire and maturity
should teach." And not only Is there
a lack of space In the reading room,
but also In the book department. Books
are piled quite to the celling: and although
they are a species of books that
are rarely called for, yet it Is a difficult
matter to give them the proper care.
It has been shown that a modern, capacious.
ornamental building can be
procured for the city of Wheeling; that
the ground to place It on is the only
Impediment: that no extra expense beyond
the purchase of a lot need exist:
and, finally, that the present room Is
too small and that thus the facilities
and the power for good Inherent in a
library are trammeled.
Hoping that this matter will receive
greater agitation, we subscribe ourselves.
A TRUE CITIZEN.
Wheeling, Oct. 4. 1899.
The railroads will give better passenger
service to California the coming
winter than ever before. BeginInng
October 15 the ^Overland Limited" via
the Northwestern, Union Pacific and
Southern Pacific roads, will commence
running on a schedule of seventy-two
hours from Chicago to San Francisco.
To maintain this service six trains are
required, and they will be composed of
brand new cars. Heretofore the fastest
time between Chicago and San
Francisco over this route lias been seventy-six
hours. The reduction of four
hours is made to meet the time of the
Santa Fe route, which has almost completed
the extension of Its road to San
The Santa Fe does not propose to
lose any of Its prestige as a line from
Chicago to California. If Intends to
run twice as many limited trains the
coming winter /is It did last winter.
Beginning November 7 four limited
trains will leave Chicago weekly for
Los Angeles, on Tuesday, Wednesday,
Thursday and Saturday#. East-bound
the limited trains will leave Los Angeles
on Tuesday. Thursday, Saturday upd
Sunday. Hereafter the regular trains
of the Hantu Fe will make stops of
twenty-five minutes at stations for
meals. Heretofore the time has been
from ten to twenty minutes.

Capt. Thomas C. MncMHlan. of Louisville,
Ky., I* In Pittsburgh to-day. He
left there yesterday and says that there
was only eight boats of lump and two
barges of lump coal afloat there when
he left Besides this there was ten or
twelve boats of slack. The price of
coal has advanced there and some boats
have sold at the rate of eight cents a
bushel, the empty boats to be returned.
The supply of river coal will not Inst
long. The railroads are hauling the
most of the coal now loaded, but on account
of the scarcity of railroad cars, it
is hard for the railroad operators to fill
their orders. The coal dealers In Louisville
are anxious for a rise as well as at
all points through the south, and it is
expected that there will be a good price
paid for the product when It loaves
here, in view of the fact that all the
coal afloat Is now controlled by one concern.
It will nil be sold at a fixed price.
Just what the price will be is a matter

That the West Virginia grand lodge

is coming on apace, was shown
last night when the lights were turned
on at the arch located at the corner of
Sixteenth and Market streets. The arch
remained lighted for several hours, and
the spectacle attracted much attention,
and the general verdict was that
with nine of these arches it can be said
Wheeling's streets were never so lav- <
ishly decorated for any affair in the
The design includes the arch proper, <
spanning the street, and a top bar running
horizontally across, each studded
with Incandescent lights six Inches
