The Republican party points
?with pride to the record ol Hon.
A. B. White, late Internal Reve
nue Collector. Four years ago
the internal revenue service in
"West Virginia was not held in
very high esteem in some parts
of the State, but during the past
four years the State has been
practically cleared of illicit dis
tilleries. nearly $1,030,000 more
money has been collected than
during the previous four years,
the work has been done without
any friction, and every deputy in
the State is esteemed highly by
the revenue tax-payer. "SVe are
one of the districts in the United
States rated first-class, and
the only district with no taxes
uncollected. This is the first
time for at least thirty years that
this has been done in any} dis
The people of the United
States have lost more than a
billion dollars by the deprecia
tion of securities since last No
vember. Credit is paralyzed.
Confidence has vanished. Indus
trial development has ceased. A
marked tendency toward lower
wages has set in, and the number
of unemployed increases every
day. Unparalleled prosperity
has given place to general stag
nation in many channels of trade.
The discontented mortals are
trying their experiment.
The threat of free trade and
debased currency, and the obsti
j nately unpatriotic policy that has
.been shown up in seven months
under a Democratic administra
ori have been a hundred-fold
than the purchase of silver bul
lion under the Sherman law?a
measure which, be it remem
be red, was enacted solely as a
barrier against the unlimited
coinage of silver,'for . whlch the
I)emocratio party contended.
The American people are with
Benjamin Harrison in the belief
that the Hawaian islands should
become a put of the United
States, and that the key to the
Pacific should be held by the
American Republic, and not by
^reat Britain.
The presidents of the various
district boards met on Wednes
day and selected Mr. L. E. Ben
nett and W. A. Marsh, members
of the board of examiners.
Extra session of Congress is
called for Aug. 7th. We wait
and listen.
Let Them l?eny It.
When Mr. M. G. Holmes made
his final settlement with tho
county court a few days ago, he
astonished everybody, and the
court as well, by showing the
most phenomenal record
made by any Sheriff in Harrison
county in many years. It will
be remembered that when the
office was turned over in 188#;
Sheriff Horner was indebted to
the county 120,346.22, and in
1888 when Mr. Holmes took
charge of the office he beheld the
enormous sum of 821,657.97 still
due the county. Mr. Holmes'
settlement showed that his in
debtedness to the county at the
end of the last fiscal year of his
four years term, was only 1289,
and he stood ready to pay this
sum, but could not find the or
ders. This $289, however, was
no part of Mr. Holmes' transact
ions, but was a part of the old
business belonging, properly, to
his predecessor. So far as we
have been able to investigate,
this settlement has no parallel in
the history of the 54 counties of
West Virginia. The county now
has no endorsed outstanding or
ders upon which large sums of
interest ean accrue as was the
case under the former adminis
trations when the county paid
Out thousands of dbllars in in
terest Such is the record
the Republican party has
made In one term of the sheriff
alty of Harrison county.
Hon. A. B. White turned over
the office of Collector of Internal
Revenue for West Va.,by giving
a magnificent banquet to the
members of his force at his ele
gant home in Parkersburg last
Friday night. The affair was
one long to be remembered. The
officers under Mr. White pre
sented him a beautiful and costly
gold watch and chain and to
chief clerk. W. M. Cox, they gave
a gold headed cane.
In giving up the office, which
he has filled for four years, Mr.
White and the Republicans of
West Virginia, of whom he is a
faithful representative, have the
satisfaction of knowing that he
leaves behind a record of which
they may well feel proud. The
administration of the office dur
ing Mr. White's incumbancy has
been honest, capable and econom
ical, and those business methods
which have marked the conduct
of the internal Revenue system
of the entire country under Com
missioner John W. Mason, also a
West Virginian, have prevailed
?n the West Virginia district.
Mr. White hands over to his
successor the office in a No. 1
order, everything up to date and
no uncollected taxes. Tnis has
taken hard work and the collector
and his efficient corps of depu
ties and clerks naturally take
pride in the result of their labors.
Notwithstanding the reduction
of L5 per cent, in the tobacco tax
two years ago and the striking
off of 6,500 special taxpayers in
the district by repeal of special
taxes (by the McKinley bill) Mr.
White collected in the four years
nearly one million and thirty
thousand dollars more than his
predecessor did in the four years
preceding. This shows the in
crease in collections, by the way,

erly of this
home in Baltimore 1
was one of the best
in our State and'had i
business interests id West Vir
ginia. being the owner: of large
stores in different towns. Mr.
Harmison was a brother-in-law i
of Dr. Wm. Late, of Bridgeport, j
this county. He Accumulated a
yast amount of money by his
keen business judgment* and had
not misfortune overtaken him,
might hav$ lived years, in the en
joyment of his accumulations.
Mr. Harmison was ever guided
by genuinely good impulses. He
was radical in all his views so far
as he himself was concerned, but
was charitably disposed toward
other people's opinions and views.
One of his distinctly good char
acteristics was his kindness to
young men, to whom he always
lent a helping hand^'fHe was
philanthropic, as may be evi
denced by the dozens of success
ful business men, who wiere given
their start by Mr. Harmison's
helping hand.
His memory will be long re
vered here and elsewhere where
he was known.

speaking, and used sbme rather

him by the throat. Theifjudge
ordered them to be separated,
and as soon as some men tiad
started away with Mr. Sturgiss,
Mr. Keck grabbed a very heavy
bottle, filled with red ink, and
hurled it at Sturgiss, but missed
him and scattered red ink over
several spectators, the floor and
furniture, and kept a thoroughly
red hand and arm himself. The
judge fined Mr. Sturgiss 135 and
Mr. Keck $15 for contempt of
court, while the spectators had a
hearty laugh. Mr. Keek's father
and Mr. Sturgiss had a similar
encounter several years ago, and
no very warm feeling has existed
between the Kecks and Sturgiss
since then.?Virginian.
