There uro reasons why the politicians
here are more Interested In who will

any organization that the IJemocraI
tic party In West Virginia hna effected
at tho outset, of a campaign
In many, many years.
Thi> principal roanon Ir thnt the
party l? cocky over ciirIi. It haB the
aasurnnco of ampin flinch with which
lo ant up the bent organisation headquarters
It can command, and aufflnlnnt
currency ammunition with
which to wngo Riich a battle an It
plana to make tlila year. This la a
condition of afTnlra I hat It hasn't
enjoyed alnco the Bccond Cleveland
campaign In 1888, and that was so
lone ago that moRt of the party
leaders now in control can remember
only Indlatlnctly, If at all.

It may ho well to Insert
right here, tliut the outcome of the
188X campaign was dlstistrous to the
hies InrtVittson's l,np.
Another cause for the present
cockiness Is the fuet that the West
Virginia branch of the party lies In
the lup of Clarenco Wuyland Watson
blouse and breeches. It has turned
Itself over to him on the Implied '
promise that It Is to bn "kept." It
j lias transferred Its affections from

Still nitnther reason for the Intta1

of the meeting to appoint the crew

I.ewls. Jr., "himself." Charles Cameron
Is n novolty, and the capital

In that respect as politics
Is elnlmed bv a lot of OOODle to be

hiiBlncBR man, and accused of being
an efficiency expert. On the strength
of that reputation which has been
given him It Is expected that he will
undertake to apply efficiency methods
to his party's campaign. That will
be a new thing ^or that party, and
a dread thing doubtless to the lelsI
uroly personnel which has characterised
the Democratic hendquarters ;

the Republican party. It was given
