The Republican campaign In Wheeling
will be formnlly opened this evening
at the Opera Houee, and the indication*
are that the meeting will draw a crowd
that will require an "expansion" meeting
on the outHlde. With two speakers
of such generally recognlzcd ability
United States Senator Julius C. Burrows,
of Michigan, and "Our Own" nomoo
H. Freer, both of tvhom are prlnccs
among spellbinders, the average Republican
will feel that something is going to

HEERMANS ON BRYAN.
Though Ho Was Heard by a Large
OxJowd, Enthusiasm Was "Shy."
Mr. Bryan's speech making tour of
Weal Virginia was not a brilliant success/
according to many of the nonpartisan
newspaper correspondents who
accompanied him upon hl? itinerary.
Mr. Ed. M. Heermans accompanied the
Bryan party upon the trip through
West Virginia and Maryland, writing n
daily report for the New York Sun.
While in Wheeling yesterday morning,
iur. fiecrmans tamed witn a representative
of the Intelligencer about the
trip.
He. Bald that Bryan had good crowds
everywhere but at Parkeraburg'. There
the attendance was even disappointing
to the'local committee. Six thousand
people hoard Bryan at Parkersburg, but
they; came mostly from tho city and
vicinity. The coldness of Mr. Bryan's
audiences almost everywhere, was
marked. At Shepherdstown and
Clarksburg the county fairs were In full
blast, which partly accounts for the
large turn out.
"Throughout West Virginia," said
Mr. Heermans, "the Interest in Mr. Bryan's
trip was that of curious people,
when at' this season of the year arc
eager for a holiday. They would flock
to their country towns to see and hear
any man of national repute. The people
6tared at Bryan In amazement when
he screamed out to them In thundering
tones that they were not prospering,und
that good times wore on the wane.
"Those multitudes were enabled to
have tho holiday and privileged to s?*e
and hear the Nebraskan orator, because
of their prosperity. The men and
women were unusually well dressed,
and the men could llnjrle coins In their
pockets. They marveled at Bryan's
urgent remarks that they were- not enjoying
good times. Bryan told the I
Clatliaburg people, right within sight of :
new glass works, a new railroad and a
score of other signs of prosperity, that
they were having hard times. The local
Democratic committee at Clarksburg 3
had whispered to Mr. Bryan while drlv- ,
Ing' to the grove, that good times was
the'Republican argument that was Injuring
the Democratic cause In Harrison
county. Hence Mr. Bryan's onslaught
upon prosperity."
Mr. Hoermans said he asked Mr.
Bryan after the meeting, why he had
taken up the calamity cry again. He ,
said he expected to devote much time
and many speeches to the subject of the i
unstableness of prosperity, In view of
the fact that he anticipated many labor
agitations and a great strike among
the anthracite miners. 1
It was rather amusing that Mr. Bry- j
an preached hard times to the Clarksburg
'crowd, when upon the very plat- (
form upon which he spoke, .^at ?
Col. T. Moore Jackson, the Democrat 1
who declined the congressional nonil ^
nation In this district, who upon his (
own statement Thursday to the corros- a
pondents, said he was "too busy making
money to be In politics." Mr. Jack- }
son drove the newspaper correapon- |
dents from the train to the grove in Ills
carriage. The "calamity cry" did not r
set well with him. I

MR. GEORGE
IS MAKING
HEADWAY
Among the Ohio County Senatorial
Conferees, and He May be Nominated
This Afternoon. j
A LENGTHY CONFERENCE'HELD j
Friday Afternoon, at Which No Determination
as to United Action
Was Arrived At.
Yesterday afternoon a committee
representing the Wellsburg Trades
Assembly1 eamo to .Wheeling for the
purpose of furthering the interests of
Sir. Samuel George, the Wellsburger,
who has been endorsed by Brooke
county for (he senatorial nomination nt
to-day's convention at "Wellsburg. The
committee was composed of Messrs.
George Patterson, John Longbottom, l
Joseph Combs,* Sol Combs, Robert
Combs, E. D. Mooney and John J. Murphy.
The committee first met a committee
of Wheeling glassworkers, members of.
the union In North Wheeling, but It
la said that the conference was not attended
by representatives of the two
other local unions of the Flints, I^os.
9 and G3. The two committees later
met in tho first branch council chamber,
city building, with the Ohio county
senatorial conferees, and thoroughly
discussed the situation with reference
to Mr. George's candidacy. The two
committees reported tr/thoconferees thftt
any trouble that might have occurred
in Mr. George's factories was without
his knowledge; that George had
unionized his plantB and that the situation
Is now perfectly satisfactory. It
was also stated that President John
Kunzler, of the American Flint Glassworkers'
Union, had written a letter,
Btailng that the George glass works
are now union, and that his candidacy
would not be opposed by the Flints as
an organization.
The committees left, and the conferees
continued tht* discussion. It came
out thnt a number of the conferees
were not convinced that the nomination
of George would be wise. It was
Rtnted that although some of the
Wheeling ^glasswork-rs had appeared
In favor of his candidacy, two other
unions .will work against him If nominated.
It was suggested that before
the nomination is made there; should
be further Investigation as to how the
union-labor people in Ohio county will
receive Mr. George as a candidate for
senator. It was determined that the
Ohio county conferees would meet In
Wellsburg to-day tat noon for the purpose
of going over the situation in dotall,
and endeavor if necessary in the
Interest of party success, to delay the
nomination four or five days or a week.
This would mean the adjournment of
the convention to-day without the
naming of a candidate.
There Is a disposition, howevr, among
some of the Ohio county conferees to
support Mr. George, and It would not
be surprising if he were nominated
this afternoon.
