Past records of "The Gorilla" and the "O. K. Kid," also known respectively as R. N. Robertson and William Watson, show them followers of presidential campaigns .long before 1899. when they were arrested at Peoria, 111.. In the .wake of the McKlnley special. "The O. K. Kid" and Harry Gardner were charged here with grand larceny, while the other members of the alleged gang were held on open charges growing out of scores of complaints by persons whose pockets bad been rifled at the Seattle picnic. Secret service operatives with the Hughes party had tipped oft the local police that a number of notorious "dips" were attending the candidate's meetings. Partisan enthusiasts are apt at spell-binding climaxes to forget all about their loose change and watch fobs dangling carelessly. It is then the "dip." worming his way through the packed crowds, suddenly loses Interest in statesmanship and adds his own personal "touch" to the joyous occasion. It would seem a wise precaution, Seattle police suggest for campaign audiences to applaud with the feet or by whistling like the "gallery god," leaving the hands free to protect the pocket fortune.

The late Congressman W. W. Wedcmoyer used to tell a story of rain in the Klondike. He was going up the Yukon on a government junket and the sky drizzled all the way. At one landing a dejected looking "sourdough" stood on the wharf awaiting the boat. "I say, partner." asked Wcdemeyer, "how long has it been raining?" "Dunno," was the reply..

In addition to tho extension of the Monongebla road to Bellngton and the acquisition of the Coal and Coke by the Pennsylvania, for which the Fairmont Times vouches, the Coal and Coke according to the Charleston Mall, Is shortly to be taken over by the Kanawha and Michigan, which Is a New York Central subsidiary. Either of these stories Is nlauslble and von ran Lake your pick, but it would be a good Lbtng to remember, before placing any bets, that the Baltimore and Obto which has been looking tbe property over, has never said that it does not want the Coal and Coke itself. Then a little surveying party operating along both sides of the Potomac in the vicinity of Shepherdstown is worrying the newspapers in the Eastern Panhandle. One guess is that they are at work on a railroad that will get Into Washington over the road constructed some years ago from that city to the Great Falls, crossing the Potomac river from Washington to the Virginia side by the old aqueduct bridge. The late Senator Stephen B. Elklns and other financiers built this road. It was believed then that the road was Intended eventually to connect with the Western Maryland, West Virginia Central-Wabash system, but the death of Senator Elklns and financial reasons prevented the carrying out of this purpose. The surveyors have come through Virginia from Washington with their lines, and it looks as if they are aiming for a connection with the Western Maryland in the neighborhood of WilllamsporL It will be recalled that a branch of the Western Maryland was recently built into Berkeley county with the ostensible purpose of getting into the llnestone section, but this may have been but a foxy move to get Into West Virginia to link up with Washington.

The first application for a political position ever filed by a woman in Ohio county, was mado by Miss Ada Dillon of Fifteenth street. Miss Dillon applied to the board of county commissioners for appointment to the position of county law librarian. She would succeed the late Berry Merchant. The board did not consider the application a Joke by any means, says the Wheeling News. Each of the members assured Miss Dillon that tbey had no objection against a woman filling the position, although they were taken somewhat by surprise. It was Intimated that politics might prevent her appointment. nn mm.
