Will Be Next President of the
State Senate Says Weston
WESTON, Dec. 6?George E.
White in the Weston Independent..
in its Issue of tit is week, says:
Senator Rov E. T'arnsh. of Clarksburg.
will he the next president of the
state senate, unless all signs fail. At
the extra session, just closed, a boom
was plan ml jOI- hini i>y his large clrclo
or friends over the state, which met
with surprsing success. The preside
nc> of the Senate 1s an important
position since the death of the governor
under the constitution, elevates
the president to the governorship.
Senator Punish is one of the ten
hold-over senators of the majority,
and as the presidency always goes to
a hold-over, his chances are good.
His attention to the work and his
qualifications make him an available
man in every respect. The pledges of
support already offered him muke
him a formidable candidate, and others
can be counted upon according
to his friends. Having served with
him through' one regular and three
extra sessions of the legislature, we
art- sure the people of West Virginia
could not have their business in the
hands of a safer man. With all respect
to the ability -of other senators,
we believe Senator Parrish is best
fitted for this important place and we
trust the Senate in Its wisdom will
choose him.

guns and ammunition. It "was agreed
that the occasion called for one of
the strongest men in England to
awaken the country to the paramount
necessity of providing war materials
on a huge scale. "The battle of
Neuve Chapclle," as Lloyd George,
said, "had consumed more ammunition
than was used In the whole Boer
The manner in which Lloyd George
tackled this new problem wa? typical
of his energetic career. He hurried
the passage through parliament of a
special munitions bill which gave the
government broad powers of control
over all factories that were making or
capable of making war munitions.
The bi ll'made strikes and lockouts illegal,
gave power to fine "slackers";
limited the profits of employers, and
provided for a volunteer army of
workers who should pledge themselves
to go wherever the government
would require them to work in the
Exasperated by the slowness with
which workers rallied to the factories,
Lloyd George gave tho labor leaders
just seven days in which to make
good their promise of getting sufficient
men to man the plants for
maximum production. During the
week the newspapers all over the United
Kingdom "were flooded with full
pag<y advertisements, and the labor
leaders turned town halls throughout
the countrv into recruitinc offices
with the result that women as well)
as men workers enlisted in even,
greater numbers than wero necessary,
and the munitions problem was
soon solved.
Lloyd George was one of those who
found intoxication to be a serious
handicap In maintaining efficiency at
the munitions plants, and it was
through his vigorous handling of the
situation that new legislative restrictions
on liquor Hale were put into effect.
