An Intelllgcncer reporter met Col.'W. H. Nave, of Bethany, and, learning that he had Just returned from New York City, interviewed him. as to the political situation in the Empire state. Mr. Nave was at first reluctant to express any opinion on the subjcct, but finally agreed to give his views, as follows: by the Triadelphia district Republicans. ;Secretary Norton. of the general committee,, has sent written invitations to the Republicans of the three \ipper precincts of the district and to those; of Liberty and Richland districts. Invitations were not sent to the voters of the three lower precincts of Triadelphia district, the affair being given under thelx; auspices and no invitation considered necessary. The commissary-in-chlef, Charles ^Selbert, has contracted with Hess & Lemmohs for three beeves, one thousand pounds of pork, 500 loaves- of bread and several hundred gallons of coft'ee. The beeves will not be rohsted whole, but will be cut up in strips'," so that raw meat will not predominate, as it so often does at political barbecues. The food will be served from the Casino restaurant between the hours of 1 and 2 in afternoon and between G and 8 in the evening, hours that do not conflict with the speaking proxramme. The meat will be roasted In the open air back of the Casino, and competent cooks will be employed. There will bo at least two speaking stands, one In the Casino nnd the other from the band stand outside. The Opera House band has been engaged for the music; and the Triadelphia band will also be secured. The Wheeling clubs will leave the electr.lc cars for the night parade at Pleasant Valley, and will mnrch to the park ovqr the brick-paved pike. There will be *a great demonstration by the vJVVlllO Premium Hams Finn flavor in a ham la never accidental. The rich, delicate "PREMIUM" FLAVOR In Swift's Hams is the result of fine stock and careful, clcan preparation unfler Gov't inspection. Swift and Company Chicago Kama* City Omaha St. 1<ouit St.JoMph Si. t'aul Wheeling Branch, 50-54 Sixteenth-Street 1 I i mei a kooq many prominent politicians In the metropolis of the nation and listened attentively to the opinions expressed by the representatives of both parties. Of course each side professed to be'confident of victory, tut from my Intercourse with the solid business men, and I met many members of leading firms of New York, I became Inclined to think that McKlnley will receive an overwhelming majority and furthermore, I believe that he will carry the state of New York in its entirety by at least 50,000. This, I regret, as I am a Democrat, and am not In favor of the President's policy- In the Philippines and In Porto Rico, and could not under any circumstances cast my ballot for him. "It may be of Interest to some of the readers of the Intelligencer to give a bit of information in regard to * the gentleman who is a candidate for governor of New York on the Republican ticket. His name Is Benjamin B. Odell, and his home Is In Newburg, on tho Hudson river. Understanding from Dr. *\V. C. Boone, who was graduated at Bethany college, and who for many years has resided In New York City, that Mr. Odell had once been a student at Bethany, and being desirous to ascertain If such was the case, the doctor and I called on Mr. Odell at the Republican headquarters In the Fifth Avenue hotel, and had a pleasant chat with the prospective successor of Colo nel Roosevelt. He informed us that he was a student at Bethany In 1872-'73 and paid a glowing tribute to that famous Institution of learning. Ho spoke in eulogistic terms of the late William K. Pendleton, who, as president of the college, was the immediate successor of the great Alexander Campbell. He also referred to Prof. Charles Louis Loos as a line teacher of ancient languages. He remembered with great pleasure the days spent at old Bethany and inquired after many of Its former residents, asking particularly after John Lauck, at whose house he boarded. Mr. Lauck Is now, I understand, proprietor of the Granite House. In Wellsburg. "In appearance Mr. Odell Is quite good looking and Impressive, and at a guess, I should say, If elected to the chief magistracy of the greatest state in our glorious union, he will discharge its responsible duties In a creditable and honorable manner." Not for Irwin. James M. Wheat, of the Eighth ward, secretary of the Ritchie Rough Riders and leader of the drum corps attached to that company, was highly indignant yesterday when It came to his ears that a story was In general circulation In South Wheeling to the effect that he was working for Will Irwin, the Democratic candidate for sheriff. When seen last night. Mr. Wheat said: "Thefre is not a word of truth in the story. It is a base lie from beginning to end. I am a Republican from start to Ilnlsh. and Intend to do as I always have done?suppor: the Republican ticket from top to bottom. I think the story was started to injure my candidacy for the second branch of council.In the Eighth ward. I want my friends to understand that the story Is without the least foundation. The Wheats have never been known to vote the Demor cratlc ticket and I don't intend to start the family that way." Travis Cadets. The Travis Cadets will hold an Important business meeting this evening. All members are requested to be present. Progressive Club To-niglit. Messrs. S. G. Smith and John Arbenz will address the Young Men's ProgreHKIve Club to-night, ut their room, on Main street. Hon. C. II. Payne, of Huntington, will also be present. Meeting at Greggsville. Frank W.

The Republicans are making preparations for this meeting on a large scale and It will be the banner meeting of the campaign. All the Wheeling clubs have personal Invitations to be present and the clubs of Moundsvllle, Bellalre, Slstersvllle and Martin's Ferry will participate.

Wagenhals and Kemper, which will be' igivejj at the Opera House, next Friday I evening, brings to mind the infrequency I with which the play has been presented I iri recferit years and also recalls the I striking, qualities In the tragedy that jaro calculated to onguge and < hold-public ^attention. The Infrequency of presentation Is .easily accounted for. There are still 'fewer actresses who are competent to handle the character of Lady Macbeth and give It the combined masculine and womanly nature that are essential to Iti and which serve to reveal the full significance of the story. But Tor that matter the great Lady Macbeth's have been few and far between In all stage history. Mrs. Slddons was ftreiVt,' Charlotte Cushman was great, and Modjeska Is.great. The production Is entirely adequate In all directions. There Is special scenCry, new costumes, complete properties' and the traditional music of the play; Tne revival Is the most nbtable plven this tragedy In jiiiwiy junr?. i no roie 01 ninetieth will lie played by the famous nctor, Mr. It.

Mr. Inham's company Is the ui ivo iviuj, uui since n>3 great 8UCCGBH In placing colored talent on a high level, other companies have been organized, but whether from lack of superior talent or want of proper detail, these copies of a great flrst-claes novelty have fallen by the wayside. Mr. Isham's Idea seems to have been to place a good trade mark on his show from the first and to that end he Introduced nothing In act or song that could offend the most fastidious. Frimoso and Dockstader. The Prlmrose( & Dockstader minstrels are stronger this year and better than ever, and are booked to appear at the Opera House, this evening. These -well known managers have gone to great expense In the matter to secure accessories which are made necessary by the many new and attractive features Introduced this season. Eight very funny comedians, including Primrose & Dockstader, present features that are absolutely new, novel and laughable. A group of sweet vpcallsts, whose volcc3 please In their harmonious renditions, aid in the Interpretation of the delightful programme. The first part Is decidedly beautiful and Impressive; everything presented Is new, bright and funny and there Is not an old. Joke or act from start to finish. "Uncle Tom's Cabin." There was a big audience at the Grand Opera House last night, to witness a splendid production of "Uncle Tom's Cabin," by the Al. W. Martin company. This famous play was presented in a more elaborate manner than it has ever before been seen In Wheeling, with a big company, and full and. complete scenic and mechanical effects. The real negroes, Siberian blood hounds and barns made the plantation, scenes' very realistic. The street parade at noon was a pleasing surprise.. The company carries its own band and orchestra. and requires two .special cars. "Uncle Tom's Cabin" will be repeated to-night. BRIEF MENTIONINGS. Events in and About the City Given in a Nutshell.

The attraction at the Opera House last night was the Hoyt farce, "A Hole in the Ground." There were onn or two good specialties. Including the dancing by Frank C. Young and Miss Bessie De Vote, but the company as a whole was disappointing. THE STOGIE STRIKE In Pittsburgh Appears to "be Won With Barely a Fight. ? The strike of the hand-made stogie makers In Pittsburgh, which was scheduled to begin yesterday morning, does not amount to much. While the demand for an advance In pay from 53 to $3 25 a thousand was made by the local union of the' National Stogie Makers' League, Local Assembly. 1374. of the Knights of Labor, Joined In the movement. The Knights of Labor controls thirty-six shops In that vicinity, and the demand was granted at every one of them. The demand was granted In seven shops controlled by the league, and a strike Is on at as many more. It was reported yesterday morning at headquarters that not more than 135 men struck, and all but fifty of these have secured employment at union shops. Applications were received from Cincinnati and Marietta for men, and It Is believed that not more than twenty will be Idle.by the middle of the week. Some of the manufacturers hava been granted more tlmo to consider the demands, but all are expected to be in line before- the close of the week. The Hebrew. Cigar Makers'* Association, composed of workmen In the hill district, Is supporting the strikers. No member of the organization Is permitted to take the place of any striker. If the demand for an advance Is generally conceded this association proposes to make a similar demand, and the wages of hand-made toby makers in this section will be uniform. The working cards of the National Stogie Makers' League are recognized at shops controlled by the Knights of Labor. At the meeting of the United Labor League tl\c strike of the toby makers was Indorsed. They will visit the factory of the R. & w. Jenklnson Company and urge the company to agree to the terms of the workers. The 53 25 scale has been paid In "Wheeling for some time, and the locnl manufacturers ' objected that Pittsburgh-enjoyed an unfair advantage by having to pay only 53 a thousand.
