On account, of the gravity of the offense, the character of the offender and the possible evil effects of the deed, The Advocate departs from its rule, to allow others to chronicle specific instances of the race's lapses from the path of rectitude, to deplore and to condemn an incident in con nection with the recent meeting of the West Virginia conference of the African Methodist Episcopal church. A'mong the visitors to the con ference was a man who pastored the t'looal church about ten years ago and 3 is now presiding elder of a neighbor ing district. There was also present I a woman, whose actions with the ; .presiding elder at the Morgantown meeting of the conference hist year, ?were subjects oi' much unfavorable comment. The story goes, as it comes from a source of the highest auti>ority, that it was only to avoid """a public demonstration that the wo man in question was among those publicly introduced Ao the conference and only then at the very urgent request of the presiding elder. Many - ministers present took exceptions to the introduction and; upon the con sideration of the matter in executive session, the whole disgraceful story of how the presiding elder had again laid luimself liable to censure by leaving the home to which he was assigned and going to the hotel '? where the woman was stopping, li came out. The punishment, if any, to be meted out to the offender, will be : lett to the presiding elder's own con % fevence, which convenes within three weeks. T*"" ifere we have within our very gates an example of the church's greatest weakness, a minister who, if not guilty, is at least open to the .suspicion of utter disregard for the sixth commandment. These are the men responsible for the disrepute in to which the profession is falling and are chargeable with much of the ir revcrance which the ministerial cloth evokes. The world condones, while it con demns. vice committed by a layman, but woe unto the preacher who falls from grace. Advocating virtue, he must not. deal in vice, nor "Show me the steep and thorny way ?My ' ^?ct to heaven, Whilst, like a puffed and reck less libertine, ? V Himself the primrose path of dal ? 1 lance treads, And recks not of his rode.'' What action the conference will take in this case is doubtful; what tion it should take -is clear. Convicted as tin* presiding elder was questionable, if not immoral, con ^Guct, he should he unfrocked and driven from the church. Marsh treat ment to be sure, but the church has Whitewashed too many such offend qtb. It. has shielded too many of ils K W>rvant3 against whom charges of y <w*honestv or immorality have 'f: fpund lodgment. It has too many ? ? y?lve? <in sheep's skin. It. has be o It a flagrat infraction of the ,we of n:an, of the church and of d. If it does not. purge itself of (oh offenders, let it cease to wonder y th6 pews give so little heed to admonitions of the pulpit; let it longer oxpress surprise at the 7llfci*?ai?e ill the accessions to its y porkers from among those who have for the sanctity <>r their j^Wnai and the vlrtuo ?ii theii wo mankind h >'y<. ' ra . . ..' J' AUSK IDOLS The hoed which some of those, for whose civil liberty paper has exert* d every effort to preserve, are giving to the blandishments of tthe Democratic candidates for office nils us with alarm lest they, in their eagerness for the return of the saloon, their greatest enemy, sacri fice their b'rt bright. The platform of the Democratic party in convention assembled in this city less than two years ago is too recent lor repetition. There are but I few. if any, who can not recall that the main issues in the last campaign were Negro disfranchisement and separation of the races upon the common carriers. The readers of The Advocate do not need to bo re minded tli.it. Mr. Littlepage. now running for Congress from this dis trict. was a candidate for a state of fice at that time and made his light on an anti-Negro platform. The memory of the Negro people of West Virginia is still fresh on the subject of Mr. MacCorkle's adherence to the mandates of his party and his efforts to secure the election of his party ticket. i inie. it is said, changes all things but it has not changed these gentle ines nor has it changed the attitude of i heir party toward the Negro. As they were two years ago, so are they now. .Just as they endorsed Negro disfranchisement and Jim Crow ears, and spent their money, squandered their time and exerted their influence to make the Negro a political eunuch, two years ago. so ure th?\v inclined to do today and would do it the Negro, instead of the liquor question, were the issue. There is danger lest our people follow strange gods, lest they forget their friends. In West Virginia we must look to the Republican party for the preservation of our constitu tional rights. To the dominant party, we must look for whatever advance ment we hope for or the retention of the privileges we possess. These be thy Gods, Oh Isreal!

Parkersburg, and it Is not unlikely that the dominant party will al>o open headquarters, cither at Pariscrs burg or at Clarksburg, from which point a victorious campaign was waged two years ago. The point of vantage over which the Republicans and Democrats will wage battle this fall is the House of Delegates. The Democratic leaders realize that it would require an over whelming landslide to give them the State Senate, with a large number of Republicans holding ove**, but with factional tights existing in Marlon, Mason, Clay, Fayette, Doddridge and Wetzel Counties and the Republicans warring in several of the other coun ties. the Democrats feel they have an opportunity to capture the House of Delegates and force a compromise out of the Repubicans when the state is redistricted during the aiext ses sion. Ten seats in the House of Dele gates, usually filled by Republicans, are endangered in five counties where two tickets have been placed in the field, making Democratic suc cess absolutely certain. With these it would be necessary for the Demo crats to gain about 10 more seats, and they believe they have a splen did chance in counties like Ohio, Kanawha, Nicholas, Pocahontas, Lincoln, Putnam, Cabell, Harrison, Berkeley and a few other close coun ties. Although the Fourth Congression al District, represented by Harry Chapman Woodyard, of Roane Coun ty, in the National House of Repre ? sentatives, h.is a normal 'Republican majority of only about 2,500. It Is the hardest problem to bo solved in that district to find a candidate in the Democratic party who is willing to make the race against Wood yard. Recently the Democrats placed Scobt Withers, of Calhoun County, one of the most prominent demo crats of the state in the field agiinst Woodyard. Withers is an attorney of statewide repute and a man of the most genial personality. He had warned his Democratic brethren that he would not accept such a nomin ation if it were tendered, and true I to his word he withdrew from the ticket. This week the Democratic Congressional Committee me: at Parkersburg and nominated John Hamilton, another Calhoun County attorney, to make the race against Woodyard. Woodyard hails from ono of the smaller counties of the district which he represents, but he has been very popuar throughout the disirict and has always aimed to get just as much for his district as the Serjeant at-Arms of the House of Represen tatives will i>ermit htm to lug away. Adam B. Littlepage, whom the Democrats have named in the Third Congressional District, is one Demo crat who refuses to buck when any thing is pushed his way, and he 's even willing to take a discard if it will help the party any when it is trying to fornnilate a ticket. The Kanawha Senator believes that anything which they force upon him is an honor. John T. MoGraw made him believe it was at the last Democratic State Convention when McGraw forced the nomination of Littlepage for Secretary of State, af ter the Grafton leader had defeated the doughty Kanawha man for the gubernatorial nomination. This year Will Chilton, when look ing over the field for a candidate for Congress to oppose Joseph Holt Gaines, espied Senator Dittlepage trying to get out of active politics and Chilton called him back to pres ?
