Faikmont lias named a street afler Senator El kins It ought to be a big one and prubably is. Tiik clipping editor on the stalT of tlie I'arkersburg Sentinel should take pains to give the proper credit, when he gives it all. lie can do this by look ing to see what paper he takes it from. We trust he will not forget that the name of this paper is the Clarksburg Dally Telegram and not some other name. Tiik prominent business man who went into bankruptcy here Wednesday has the sympathy of many warm friends. During his business career here he conducted a splendid store and did an extensive trade butcircum' stances were against him and he was forced to honestly surrender to his creditors. We are Informed that he made a complete accounting and sur rendered all. Tiik vigorous crusade against the Salem speakeasies has succeeded In lessening the business out there large ly but so far has not rid the town of It. The Indications are that the cru sade will have to be perpetual to keep the liquor trafllc down and that It will never be entirely broken up. So long as there is a demand for whiskey, there will-always be some one who will manage some way or other to sell It, It has been sold to a more or less extent ever Blnce Salem sprung into existence, but of course a crusade against it results In making it less flagrant. SoMRof the Democratic papers in West Virginia think our Government ought to be in the licat of the light in South America. There does not yet appear to bo occasion for such action but events arc being closely watched and It is a mistake to believe that Uncle Sam will not be on band when his presence Is required to protcct his interests and his principles. If the war keeps up, it is a foregone conclu sion that we will be in it, and there is no sense in this premature worry of the Democratic editors. It is not amiss, however, for them to be taking an interest so as to have their courage worked up enough to Bght, should the opportunity be afforded them. The people of Adamston have at last aroused themselves to the fact that there Is much lost in not having a town government. This change of sentiment on the part of many has come about within the short period of two years, bat there has been a won derful transformation In that place since last the question was before the people and voted down. It Is no longer a sleepy village but Is an active, lively town. The population has made roar velous growth and property bas be come much more valuable. Some splendid homes have been built and an Industry or two bBR sprung up tbcre. The changed conditions ap pear to demand municipal govern ment. It looks as if the majority of the citizens of the place favor incorpo ration and the many advantages and safe-guardd to be derived therefrom. DRY HALL Made by Deputy Sheriffs In a Raid at Salem. Proprietors of Speakeasy Board Train Officers Get Oft. A warrant for Gain & Allen's speak-1 easy and gambling place at Salem was put in the bands of Deputy Sheriffs Kred Fleming and J. M. Knox Wednesday afternoon. They went out on S5 to execute It, but the pro prietors gut on the same train that the officers got off and thus made their escape. The deputies proceeded to the place and proposed to break in, but someone assured tbem that if they would wait a little while they would be given a key. They waited and the key was forthcoming. They entered but round the place deserted so far as human beings were concerned, but there were spirits there. All signs pointed to the information that sell ing had been going on there. They secured a lot of gambling parapherna lia and brought it here. Otherwise it was a dry haul, and the officers re turned on No. 4 empty handed. AMPUTATION Necessary From the Effects of Typhoid Fever. Newton Emory, of Cascara, Dod dridge county, was put on No. 4 at Salem last night and taken to the Maryland Hospital In Baltimore for treatment. Some weeks ago he had typhoid fever and it settled in one of his feet, making amputation neces sary. The object of his trip to the hospital Is to have the amputation performed. He Is about 50 yean of age and has a wife and live children. Ills sufferings are intense. Musical Education Free A Scholarship, providing for free tuition in voice, piano or violin, for three years, has just been offered by Dean Wrlghtson, of the West Vir ginia University School of Music.

"Tbe Village Parson," a new drama, will be presented at tbe Grand Dec. 19, and with a well balanced company. The play has notouly a well-construct ed plot, but Is of Intense Interest throughout. There are a great many powerful situations In the piece In act Krst, where a husband and wife separate, tbe scene becomes one or heartfelt Interest and brings copious tears to the auditors. The situation in act two Is another strong scene In which little Myrtle, the blind child, does some very clever and earnest work, and holds the audience with closest attention. The play presents a number of excellent climaxes wbicb enthrall all present. "The Village Parson" will be given with complete stage settings, the scenery being brought here by the management. The company includes actors of rec ognized ability. "Gypsy Jack," Jan. 23 Despite the apparent sway or farce comedy and "show girl" performances, the old-fashioned ;melodrama still claims its devoted adherents. That this Is so, without 4 doubt, is practlr oally proven by the unstinted success which has greeted Willis Granger dur ing his present tour with "Gypsy Jack." Not only Is Manager Edward C. White highly pleased with the re ception which has greeted his new star, but the latter has, by his Intrin sic worth as a melo-dramatlc actor, proven his tltness for the role of the gypsy boy, wbicb is the leading char acter In the production. Miss Katherine Willard is adding new laurels to ber reputation by ber rendition of "Aria" in the emotional drama, "The Power Behind the Throne." Miss Willard has proved ber ability and exceptional talents in the production, so much so that ber tour is onecontinuousovation. Noth ing is lacking In scenic effect, stage mecbanlsm or costuming to keep "The Power Behind the Throne" up to the topmost standard, while the star's support "play up to her" with admirable .skill, The Tide of Life Effingham, 111., Nov. 7, 1002. "The Tide of Life" played my house on November 7, to a big house and gave entire satisfaction. The com pany Li a well selected one and . the scenery and electrical effects extra ordinary. The specialties far surpass any presented here so far this season. Edwaild Austin, Manager Opera House, Edwardsvllle, III.
