If elected I promise to discharge the duties of wiid ?nice faithfully and impartially. (Jfokgk C. McKinley. I am a candidate for the office of County Superintendent of free schools, for Harrison county, W. Va. W. FRANK STOUT. I am a candidate for the office of County Superintendent of Free Schools. ARTHUR CLARK. We are authorized to anuonnce Joseph Rosier, of Tenmilu district, as a candi date for County Superintendent of Free Schools. The rumor that ex-Secretary Elkins would remove from West Virginia Is untrue. The West Virginia sufferers are still at Washington, but the good things come painfully slow. Moke than twenty thousand Italian immigrants will land in New York next month. These new comers mean no good for us. They are not the kind of people we need and their presence here is rapidly forcing upon us serious problems. Let the American people unite in shutting out this stream of paupers. This should not be a political question. A woman at Dayton, Ohio, has been committed to an insane asy lum for maintaining that Presi dent Cleveland owes her some thing and will not pay it. If such a belief is proof of insanity we have enough lunatics in Harrison eounty to stock a small insane asylum. light. The Telegram is always ready to assist inquiring mortals in garnering from the fields- of knowledge, so long as the in quirers keep within the limits of its established lines. The News is indeed a very anxious and per sistent inquirer. But for the Editor Telegram to take tbe editors of the News?"figure heads, cast into this breathing world scarce half made up"?and leading them to tbe crystal pool of understanding, soak them in its intellectual waters, is asking too much. We are too busy enrolling new subscribers and sending out the latest news to stop and give these erratic voy agers oil the ocean of journalism the rudiments of an English edu cation and drill them in tbe Roman Catholic catechism. If the senior editor would connect himself with the Keeley Institute and a night school and the junior member could use a fish diet, and by adopting a hoopskirt, gain admittance to a nunnery, they might reach the goal of their ambition. THE St. Louis Globe-Democrat says that in the next campaign ,he Democrats will insist upon laving the rules with regard to vppointments published before hey cast their votes. f woreme'mber Mrroctly, the TMMiux irwlioted about four month* iiko that toe iouUllH) no Cleveland adm.nis ration.?2*eict. All' That was about as saa a jrediction as the senior News >ditor made when he predicted hat he would be Prosecuting Attorney. Wo all get left occa iionally. don't we brother. Certain geologists say that accumulating ice at the ??rl )0le will throw the earth out of >alance and cause the destruction ,? its inhabitants by the rush of novine objects.?lttonfa Consti ution. Don't be alarmed brother, the legiraoC hungry Democrats to ATashingten did not visibly affect he equilibrium of the old sphere, tndwe certainly ought not to lIIow trifles to unsettle us. Because a~paper in Sacra nento. Cal., a few days ago made v f0w deregatory remarks about he Legislature then in session vt that place, the solons be came highly incensed and im mediately passed a bill sub mitting to a vote of the people the proposal to change the capi tal of the State to San Jose. vVhere under the sun would our State capital go if it were moyed to a place whose paper hadn t shown up the reckless and ex travagant actions of the Legisla ture just adjourned. Hon. John. J. Davis is one of the deserving stalwarts in the Democratic party and his ap pointment to an honorable posi tion would be a graceful act on the part of this administration. The county executive com mittee will meet Saturday to select a candidate for county superintendent of free schools. The candidates who are an nounced on the Republican side are Mr. W. Frank Stout, Mr. Arthur Clark and Mr. W. A. Marsh, and the Democratic aspir ants are Mr. Joseph Rosier and Mr. George McKinley. This office is not properly a political office but the Australian oallot I system, requiring candidates to be selectad in a formal manner, makes the political solution the one most generally adopted throughout the State. Reports from the peach-grow ing sections state that the trees are beginning to bloom. The in dications, it is said, are for a large crop of thi^ delicious fruit. New York city's weekly death rate nas reached 1,100, a figure unprecedented except in lime of epidemic or other unusual causes. Mamma ? No, Johnny; one piece of pie is quite enough for you. Johnny?It's funny; you say you are anxious that I should learn to eat properly, and yet you won't give me a chance to practice. > Compiled Especially FOR THE TELEGRAM READERS I1;1 ?' t\\ The largest and finest area of coal in the world exists within the boudaries of West Virginia. H Huntington is the second city in West Virginia in point of size. H 1 The grandest exhibit of coal and timber that will be on exhi bition at Chicago is expected to couie from the ' 'little mountain state." 1 H The colored people in West Virginia, comprise 4 per cent, of the population. H Clarksburg was founded in October, 1785, and incorporated March 15th, 1849. n Joseph Johnson, the only governor of Virginia ever chosun from a county west of the Al leghnies, is buried at Bridgeport, Harrison county, where he lived and died. Mr. Johnson was twice elected to Congress, his last opponent being Judge G. D. Camden, of Clarksburg. H The World almamac says ',here were 8,275 deaths in West Vir ginia in 1890 and of these 1,143 died of consumption and 500 of pneumobia. According: to this the statement that one seventh of all deaths in the United States are the result of consumption, holds good in our own State. t-t ' Wm In 1890 there were enrolled in the public schools of West Vir ginia 193,064 pupils. Last year there wereJ 1,717 prosecutions in the U. S. court in West Virginia for illegally mak ing or selling intoxicating bever- ; ages. This was about 400 moro than were prosecuted in any other State in the Union. Who says that we are not a leading State? t-l Eight men have discharged the duties of governor of West Vir ginia as follows: A. I. Boreman, W. E. Stevenson, John J. Jacob, H. M. Mathews. J. B. Jack.fOa, E. W. Wilson, A. B. Fleming and William MacCorkle, the present incumbent. I H The first house where the present city of Wheeling now stands was a log cabin, erected in 1770, by Ebenezer Zane. J| M p There were 72 business failures in West Virginia last year with liabilities collectively, ? amount ing to 1850,000. t-t Harrison county was repre sented in the first West Virginia Legislature that assembled in Wheeling. June 20, 1863, by Judge Maxwell in the Senate and Hon. S. S. Fleming and Hon. Nathan Golf. Sr.. in the House'of Delegates. Judge Maxwell has spent several session* at the State Capitol as the representa tive of our people since 1863. and the venerable Solomon Floming, who is now past 80 years of age, is still living at Shinnston and enjoys good health. He also was elected sevoral times and was speaker of the soventh Leg islature. H The quantity of spirits remain ing in distillery warehouses. Oct. 1. 1893, in West Virginia was about 1.165,000 gallons. At $2.50 per gallon this would amount to nearly three millioas of dollars. H West Virginia furnished 34.068 men to the Union Army during the Civil War. Of this number that went to battle for the llag and the constitution, there were 4.017 that never returned to their "friends among the West Vir ginia hills." They gave their lives for a great cause and a grand principle. H H The West Virginia Legislature does not convene again until the second Wedesday in January, 1893. | H - There are 12,300 persons . in West Virginia who are receiving annually from the treasury of the United States over two millions of dollars in pensions. Ohio The asssssod valuation of prop erty in West Virginia is $169,927, 587, and were it divided equally each person in the State would be worth $222.77. Mississippi is i the poorest State, averaging only $129 per capita, while Cali fornia leads the world with an average wealth of $909. 1 I The amount of money in circu lation in the United States is $1,603,000,000. Divide this equally and each one of us would have $24.47. The average West VirgicHan with this amount of money in his pocket and property worth only $222.77 would not cut a "wide swath" as the world goes now.
