Republican Primaries.
The Re| ublican* held their prima
ries in the country districts on Hatur
1 day last and in town on Monday
night for the purpose of selecting del
egates to the senatorial and county
conventions.' The attendance wus
small at most places and in the fourth
ward the meeting went by default.
We are glad to see that Mr. John J.
Hetzel will be a member of the county
convention, knowing Mr. Hetzel as
we do we expect the machine to get a
jar before it railroads its Elkins ticket
through.
Alexander Sorry.
Pittsburg, Pa.,Sept. 17.—Thomas W.
Alexander, who was arrested in Pitts
burg last night as a fugitive from just
ice from Augusta, Oa., where it is al
ledged he is charged with defaulting to
the amount of $J00,000, stated today
that he would return voluntarily to
Augusta with the officer now on his
way here.
“The amount involved is not nearly
so great as re|Kirts make it,” said Alex
ander. “1 left behind securities which
have either been disposed of already or
will be shortly, which will realize suf
ficient to nearly cover the shortage. I
cannot say anything more until I get
back to Augusta and see my attorney.'
Alexander says lie is sorry he ran
away from Augusta and is glad to be
in custoday.

Mr. Bryan on Ownership.
Louisville, Ivy, Sept. id. Twenty -
two thousand wildly enthusiastic |*eo
ple assembled at the new armory last
night to do honu ge to William Jen
nings Bryan. Linked arm in arm with
Henry Wat’ersou, his w hilom oppo
nent, the < treat Commoner made his
way to the speakers’ stand, and for
mure than four mtnutea was the cen
ter of tile wildest scene, and the most
inspiring that the South lias everaeen.
There is no telling to wlr.it the cheer
ing might have gone had not Mr. Wu -
terson «tep|ied to the foreground and
■ pietled thi plcastiralde, fever-he ited
enthusiasm. Again, w hen .\lr Bryan
was introduced iiy Senator stone, the
multitude was heard for live minutes,
and Mr. Bryan, with great tlilheully,
i prevailed ujion his audience to allow
him to proceed.
In his spi'ecti Mr. Bryan dwelt |iar
ticularly on tliai portion ol ills New
York »|>eeoh relating to Government
ow nership of railroads, declaring that
Ids attitude to some extent had been
1 misrepresented. He said Hint he had
nothing to retract, hut rather desired
to elaborate on what he had previously
j uttered on this subject.
Reviewing briefly his New York
speecli, Mr. Kryau said lie had no in
tention of tiyiug to force upon tlie
Democratic party his personal views,
lie reserved the right to do ids own
thinking and he accorded every other
mail the same privilege. Jle would not
ask any other man to come to Ids way
of thinking unless he could do so con
scientiously. As to making ownership
a plank in the Democratic platform,
that was a matter for the voters to de
termine.
“I shall advocate strict regulation
and shall rejoice if experience proves
; that regulation cun bs ma le ef
Iflctive. I will go farther than that
j and say that I believe we can have
moreellicient regulation under a Dem
ocratic Vdminletration, with a Demo
cratic House and .Senate, than we are
likelv to have under a Republican Ad
ministration, with a Republican Sen
ate and House.
“Yet, I would not lie frark with
you if I did not frankly admit that
observation has convinced me that no
such efficient regulation ia |«issitiie,
and that Government ownership can
tie undertaken on the plan outlined
with less danger to the country than is
involved in private ownership as we
have had it or as we are likely to have
it."

The project to construct an electric
railway line extending from Winches
ter to Martinubtirn via the rich fruit
( section and continuing down through
Hhephe-lstown, and Har|>ers Kerry to
Charles Town, which has been in the
air for several months past, Is noy as
suming such sha|ie that it is believed
it will be definitely known within «
few weeks whether the matter will be
brought to n successful cousumation
or not. Persons representing the capi
talists back of the pro|*>sitton, accotn
'[ panied by (!ol. Htuart W. Walker, whn
has been handling the local end of the
' in itter, went over a portion of the
route yesterday, and upon the report
deiiends the success or failure of the
project. A deal of such great propor
tions, involving, as it does, the expen
diture of $1,600,000, cannot he closed in
a^day, and while little has been said
i here concerning the matter, those in
charge ha -e been working hard to
bring about success. /The building of
this road would greatly benefit every
person along the route, and a concert
ed effort to help the matter along, in
the event it is decided to build the Hue,
should be made by every progressive
citizen in ttie three counties through
which the line would run.—World.
