Last week the Intelligencer took notice editorially of a proposition that ivas to be made In the legislature to have a Btatu? of ex-Governor Pierpont placed in statuary hall in the national capitol. The suggestion seems to have Irritated the sensibilities of a reader of this paper, ana in anotner column wo print his exceptions. . Our . correspondent Htarta out by taking: exceptions to the Intelligencer's endorsement of the pro position, and then drifts Into a contention fls to ex-Governor Plerpont's record entitling him to the credit of "the most distinguished citizen," winding up with lauding another citizen for the statuary honors. 'We' would not say that Governor Plerpont wns "the most distinguished citizen," for such a phrase Is always Invidious; but he was "first among ' equals." It is not the holding of office that constitutes a man the "first citizen" of a state; for those who are most successful in the procurement of office, we all know, arc often least deserving? adroitness and assurance too often accomplishing more In the dirty pool of mere politics than merit. West VirElnlaJhafl not been without examples of this unpleasant truth. But If Governor Plerpont had never held any olllce?if he had never done the public any direct scrvlce in an olllcial capacity?It would stljl be true that he was one of the foremost citlzcns of the state, as he would have been of any state?such was the uprlghtneHP, the nobility, the greatness of hid Innate nature and character. To know such a man Intimately "was a liberal education." Frank Plerpont began the battle for the northwest against eastern aggression, long before the war, when Richmond was grinding us with nil kinds of infamous enactments in the Interest of the aristocracy and slavery In the vast?among them being the statute taxing wages. The sturdy patriotism and integrity of Frank Plerpont resented; everything of this nature; and on the stump and in the columns of the contemporary press, such as was open to him. he began to educate the people In' the' northwest to fight for their rights. It is not creditable to West Virginia ?no more than It is discreditable to Governor Plerpont?that after he came hack from the completion of his thankless taelc as executive of Restored Virginia, be was allowed to remain In retirement. He ought to have been either at the head of West Virginia or in one house of Congress?preferably in the senate, which he would have graced as one of the noblest Romans of them all. His service, his experience, his high pcnonal attributes, his patriotism, as one,of the greatest of our citizens, demanded nothing less than this; and the deprivation was not his, but "West Virginia's loss. The generosity of the man was nowhere better shown than In his efforts to set Mr. Willey on his feet and brace him up after his wretched break-down at Richmond and after his return to Morgantown. Plerpont knew, as did his contemporaries of that time, the weak wanderings of "Wllley's political steps, nod was willing and glnd to try to bring him around Into co-opcration with the people among whom, if any \Tiierv, wan nia oniy jjushiuio xuiure. it was Pierpont who induced Wlllcy to attend the May convention (which was not a "mob convention") and nTterwards gave WHley a certificate of Rood character and good Intentions In a letter solicited by the latter and published in the IntelHgencor.of April 21, 1S07. It does not seem a very gmcl<fti?j thing-, after all thl?, to see Mr. Wlllcy's partipiuiB trying to undermine the reputation or deservlngs oC Governor Pierpont to magnify a reputation for their favorite. Mr. Wlllcy after Carlllo's defection, no'iulenced in it by that "silence that gives consent," and nover opened his Hps to warn tho people of West Virginia of the mischief going forward, Tile first notice that they got of danger was when Senator Wado brought in .Mr, Carlllo's bill as tho report of tho cornmlffM nn trrrllnrlrn. Ah anntl iih Hum arnnzlnn document reached West Virginia In the newspapers, It struck consternation Into the hearts of the friends of thi new atatc; and Plerpont, Camphell, Norton, Tarr nnd others hurried to Washington to tho rescue. Plnrpont and the rest tvent utrnUrht to Wade, explained to him Cnrllle's tronchery, and the fatal effect of his bill If passed. He aHkvd them to no to their other senator. They did so, and Willey ircelved them like an Iceburtf, and it took wcek:< to thaw him out enough to consent reluctantly to offnr a nubHtltute prepared by Hon. W. O. Urown, containing the needed emancipation clause. These are well attested facts, well known?notorious to all who had to do with saving West Virginia In this struggle at Washington. If we are looking for tho real "pioneer, pilot nnd high priest" of the movement for the now state, we shall And in Archibald W. Campbell, then editor of the Wheeling Intelligencer, the man who ha? beat claim to these high titles. Such is the historical fact, abundantly attested by the memories of all his contemporaries and of the record. There was never any controversy over his attitude from first to last, and all the time, on the question of the new state, and a free state as the only kind of a state that was possible when tho ultimate decision rested with the two houses of an anti-slavery Congress, resolved in the face of the great rebellion then raging in behalf of slavery not to admit any new representation Into the senate from a slave state. Campbell and Plerpunt were In full sympathy and co-operation all the time, from 185C on to the end, In the fight for independence in the northwest and release from Old Virginia domination. Willey's sympathies and affiliations during this period were all with eastern Virginia and the Institutions and policies that controlled It. Board of Trade Launched. Tho meeting of citizens at the Opera House last night, gathered to witness tho launching of the board of trade and to learn its aims and scope, was a most unqualified success. If the spirit of enthusiasm manifested by the cudlcnce, made up as it was of substantial business men, Is only manifested in work, in co-operation with the board then, Indeed, is Wheeling's future growth and material prosperity secure. The secretary selected by the board, Mr. Thompson, in outlining the possibilities that lie before the city, made a most favorable Impression, and left no doubt buf the committee of the board had made no mistake in their selection. If one-tenth of the expectations he aroused are fulfilled his advent In Wheeling will be a thousand-fold blessing. , * TVfc*iAttna? nlmow rr-n ? thusiasm, but heretofore it has cooled too quickly, and what remains to be done in this instance is to allow no cooling process to supervene between now and the accomplishment of all the board of trade has blocked out to do. Every man. must keep up to the pace Mr. Thompson will set. If we sit down to rest, like we have done, we shall fall asleep again?and a very deep slumber it will be. Why the South is Thankful. . No section oC the country has more to bo thankful for in the way of material blessings than the south. Under the protective tariff system its industries have multiplied and flourished enabling other interests to revive and prosper. Why the south is thankful Is ably answered In the following specifications of the ^Manufacturer's Kecord: "In mill building, In opening mines, in railroad extension, In lumbering, in activity of domestic trade and in enlargement of foreign commerce the south has made a gratifying record during the past twelve months. For that It Is thankful. This feeling Is intensified as, with the promise of stability in national affairs, the south calmly and reasonably faces the future, for it has the prospect of a year's Income of at least $2,760,000,COO. This is to be derived as follows: . ' From the cotton plant, including the manufacturers of the staple and the products of the seed, J750.000.000. From corn, wheat, sugar, rice, tobacco and other agricultural products, 5500,000,000. From mines, including about 50,000,000 tons of coal, and from manufactures of iron and other raw material, not Including cotton, $ 1,500",000,000. Here Is a broad prospect, which may be filled in with many interesting details. In itself it la sufficient to Indicate that the south, as un Important part of a great country now entering upon a larger financial, industrial and commercial career, has a vital interest in the country's prosperity and la prepared to enjoy its share of the good things of America." This is a patriotic and business view of the situation, but the Record has omitted one very important item, and that is the south should be thankful because it lias been made to enjoy the fruits of a splendid prosperity In spite of itself. Ilud a portion of the north or the west voted as solidly as the south all those bright prospects would have been swept away. As bright' as the south is to-day, it will be more gloriously bright when It shall ha.\o at least divided Its electoral voto. Speed the day. Department o? Agriculture. "While the department of agrloulturc Is somewhat new In the business JiavIng only recently been established, It makes a magnificent showing of usefulness through the excellent annual report of Secretary Wilson. It has been a most helpful aid to the farmers of the.country, and efllclent as has been Its workings the secretary declares his own alms tb b-j to bring the department scientists to the help of the producers, to ascertain what wc. import that they can produce, with a view to encouraging its growth; to search the world for grains, fruits, grasses and legumes that they may be domesticated here and be an? improvement on what we have; to secure new and improved varieties of plants by oross-fortlllzatlon; to co-operate with the experiment stations in nil Iho states and territories In research of practical value to the people of nil actions; and to peek out new markets for our surplus products. Mr. Wilson emphasizes the manner In which thin department differs from others. Ho says Its appropriations should he regarded uh an Investment, for tlio reason that.

The He declares thi't'thls disease is on the trotti increase in the United States, and that cultls local authorities have in most cases not peopl efficiently controlled its outbreaks. He No pi refers especially;;to its oxistencs and Increase in th^'i'District of Columbia, So and points out . the special danger to foot children from rabid dogs. He suggests Than no remedy or relief, except that the aid r of Congress tys extended to parents of 11111 1 local victims'icjjsondlng bitten children to the Pasteur institute. This, of . course, would not help victims outside the District of "Columbia. More strln- ltR ca gent dog laws seems to be the only can 0 safeguard against the spread of tho dis- ^ ^ ease. **,v On the subject of. forestry, a vital one abl^' to West Virginia, Mr. "Wilson says that Tuea* there has been a great growth in the ari ln work, which is of ?uch a kind as to ,, _ fully Justify additional resources. Moreover, there has been an enormous Increase in the demand, both public and private, for.soryices of this character throughout the country. The relations of the division of forestry with practi- ; Qjir cal lumberman and tree planter^ have been closer and more useful than ever before. The total membership of the Tar force at tho highest last summer was 125.
