WASHINGTON, I). C.. Feb. 22.?
The case of an "original Wilson man"
from West Virginia was before a certain
Cabinet member this week. Tho
papers in the case lay on his desk
when the caller came to say a good
word for and in behalf of the original |
party, who seeks something better than i
his present connection with the gov
crnment. was ushered in. The docu-:
ments in the case were strong ones.
Another member of the cabinet had j
added a written commendation which !
ninde them all the stronger. They are
honestly looking for a better place to
fit rrlend "Original Wilson man" in. |
But the incident of the interview of j
more general interest to West Vir- j
ginla politicians is that "we are cn- j
tirely familiar with the fact that the]
President's friends in West Virginia, i
| when he needed friends, have not been |
as well treated as they should "have
been, and we have decided to accord ]
them the just recognition to which j
they are entitled." Thus spake the i
cabinet member.
This tends to support the rumors in !
circulation recently that in the sec-j
ond Wilson administration there will j
be a considerable change in the personnel
of Federal officeholders in
West Virginia. The report is persistent
and it appears to have a foundation.
The interview with the cuhinct
member referred to indicates that.
And it shB'ws another thing, which is
that the politicians at the head of tlic
adusnlstration, including the President
himself, are not unfamiliar with
party conditions in West Virginia, and
are in a frame of mind to confess that
the patronage was given to representatives
of a faction which bitterly and
stubbornly fought the first nomination
of Wilson, thereby amounting to
a punishment of IIiobc relatively few
Democratic leaders who did espouse
his cause from the earliest time, it
was probably not the intention to do j
that, but it amounted to tho samo
thing. The original Wilson men in
West Virginia were, in a large measure.
shorn of their influence as party
leaders in consequence.
That a reparation long delayed is going
to be made them in the second Wilson
administration not only now seems
most probable, but there is other evidence,
beside this statement of a
member of the cabinet, that it has already
been determined on, and will
most assuredly be carried out. It is
expiated nby those observing the situation
that the President will be free
to act pretty much as he pleases with
patronage in his second and no doubt
I final term, in WCBt Virginia and all
. nih?r states. As to the plum distribu
tion In Went Virginia, lio will be relieved
of the necessity of having to consult
with a Democratic Senator from
! that state, for there will be no Demoj
cratic Senator from West Virginia to
J consult. There is not the samo bind!
ing reason for consulting the party's
' national committeeman front West Vir|
glnia as there is in the case of a mern;
iter of tho Senate. The President can
do as he pleases about that. That de!
pends, too, on the attitude of tho committeeman.
If National Committeeman
| Watson, as some of his friends pre|
diet, with Senator Chilton out of the
| way proceeds to make himself friends
i and supporter of Wilson, as Chilton
i did after ho came to the Senate, Wlli
son will forgive the past in Watson's
j case as he did In Chilton, and the FairI
mont man might be able to hold conI
ferencos with tho President over tho
' distribution of West Virginia patronage.

while after the President is inaugurated.
The first important expiration
will be tho commission hold by Samuel

Tho fight on Hays has already started.

for reappointment.
"Tho future of tho Republican party ;
is not uncertain; by no means uncertain.
It is sure," declared Charles W. j
Swisher, of Charleston. W. Va., at the
Now Willard. "It Is. indeed, certain,
very certain, if such a phrase is pcrmissable.
When the war in Kurope is!
terminated, whether we are unfortunate
enough to get into it or not. tho
minds of the people are going to turn
in a different channel from thai in
which they are now engaged. They
are going to consider what is best for
this nation, and inevitably our people
will turn to the Republican party.

reason that the Democratic parly does
not know how to run the attaint ol the

We believe that Catarrh, Catarrhal;
Deafness, head noises, etc., aro caused
by constitutional diseases, and that;
salves, sprays, inhalers, etc., merely
temporize with tho complaint and seldom,
if ever, effect a permanent cure.

The first dose should begin to relieve

that show the presence of catarrhal
