Suit Brings to Light Anoth- I
er Loan Shark Transaction.
Another "loan shark" case In which
the Falrmon tLoan Association is in- 1
volred came to light and seems to j
require some explanation. George H.
Giles Is the victim and be asserts that !
last June he borrowed ten dollars :
from the association and later began ,
making monthly payments of two dol- j
lars on tht loan. The receipts for
these payments do not Indicate the
amount of the payment and each one '
bears the expression "payment in full ;
to date" which would ordinarily mean
that the entire amount of the loan, .
with Interest had boon paid.
Uowever it seems that the Loan
Association Intended that another construction
should be placed upon the
epressloxn as the interest accrual so
rapidly that the monthly payments <lid
not even cover it. George Giles was
compelled to continue payment until,
as h9 asserts, he had payed over twenty
two dollars.
It was then he determined to sever
diplomatic relations with the Assocla
lion and discontinued payment, where
upon they brought suit against him for
the sum of twelve dollars and fifty
cents. This Is the second case which
has com eto light recently In which
an oxhorbitant rate of Interest was
being charged by the association.

The subscriptions for the capital
tock of the Valley Gem which is $25,- j
000 have all been paid in but $2ob ,
which can be called at any time. This
Is held by a responsible business concern
of Morgantown. The response ,
to the call for subscribers for shares
of the Fairmont, Morgantown and !
Pittsburgh Packet company stock was
immediate, no other enterprise In this ,
section ever having been so popular .
as an Investment. The Valley Gem .
since its first trip?and including the
first trip?has paid expenses and is ,
gradually drawing away to a condi- .
tion where each week's receipts will !
show a profit. | '
Notwithstanding the fact that the last
river enterprise in Fairmont was
a failure, J. M. Jacobs of the JacobsHutchinson
Hardware company, who ,
was largely interested in the earlier |
venture, is active in the new corpor ,
atlon though not an officer. He al- |
ready has had shipped toP his store .
here more freight than the rest of the j
consignees In the city. The Dattlllo ,

era of shipments have given all or- '
ders on the condition that whorevor
possible freight be handled on tlu
boaat.
The freight tariffs will be publish
ed within a week or ten days, they no.
having been scheduled to fit all class
es of freight. There 1b a rate in effect
now but it will be changed by the
Board of Directors as soon as that
body can make proper arrangements.
On Sunday hundreds of visitors went
through the Gem looking it over and
expressing admiration at the beauty
and sturdine8s of the little craft. It
i was an ideal day for a picnic and all
I who visited th eboat were anxious
! for the season to open when the ex
curalons will run between Fairmont
and Morgantown. The boat is amply
protected with life boatB and life preservers
as provided' by law and a recent
inspection by Government Inspectors
stated the vessel was in A-l
condition for both freight and passenger
traffic. The boat was entirely
repainted yesterday even to the gang
plank, both to protect it from the
weather and to improve somewhat its
appearance both of which the coat
of paint has done.
The favorite transportation system
of Fairmont has gained many friends
since its first trip here. Cargoes are
Increasing in size each trip both coming
up the river and going down

The street running from the paved
section of Water street to the wharf
has been dried up and fixed so heavy
loads can he hauled as easily as on
paved roadways.

Notwithstanding that public sentiment
in West Virginia, as is well
know nln that state, appears to reSard
the coutest itself, and is accompanying
intrigues and machinations,
lightly; looks upon it as more or less
at a joke and a Chilton bluff, and notwithstanding
that the sentiment
there is overwhelmingly, regardless
of party linos, ocndemnatory of Chilton's
actions in this matter, the assault
upon the legality of Senator
Sutherland's seat is considered by
politicians in the capital as fraught
with grave danger to the Republican
party. It is not inconceivable, they
lay, that the party may have a Senalor
taken away from it in a twinkling,
it cannot be said that they expect this
lo happen, but they are not blind to
Ihe the fact, being politicians of experience,
that it might. They can!
not understand the apparent Indifterence
of the people in West Virginia,
especially tile Republicans, to the potential
element of grave danger involved
in the case.
It is the understanding here that
L'hilton has let no chance slip to appeal
to the partisan prejudices of his
Democratic friends and colleagues in
the Senate. They have been asEUred
that, given the chance of a special
election in West Virginia, with the
President's wartime popularity, backed
by the national administration and
the officeholders in West Virginia,
Ltielr party can elect a Democrat to
the Senate in the place of Senator
Sutnerland. The White House has
been appealed to in view of this situation
depicted and on the strength of I

"Whereas, the Beard of Governors;

ORIGINATORS AND LEADERS
f resident when a member of the Senate
In anything that the President
proposed and wanted put through. It
goes wtihout saying that Chilton expects
to he his party's nominee In the
event of the special election, which
lie is working so hard to bring about,
is held.
If the Senate committee, or the
Senate itself, decides to let down the
bars and go deep into this controversy
with an Investigation, there are a
i rcat man ythings which might happen,
as the politicians here arc pointing
out. Moat of them would likely
affect. West Virginians, some of thum
officials who were elected by narrowmargins
and who are now in omce,
hut the political situation in other
states might be disturbed. There
wero one or two Democrats elected
to the Senate by smaller majorities
than the 5,658 majority given Sutherland
over Chilton. The election of
(icrry in Rhode Island is a case in
point. Governor Cornweil's majority
was not so extensive that this Investigation
might noe result in wiping it
out. Mingo, which Is the countynamed
by Chilton in his Senate brief
as being the scene ol election frauds,
was carried by Cornwell by a large
majority. There are other counties
in the same class.
T The Chilton brief makes much of
the expenditures of the Republican
State Committee. That committee in
its statement tiled acknowledges having
spent $90,000. Chilton would
have the committee believe that Senator
Sutherland was the beneficiary
nf tho lnrcPRf nnrt r?f thla anm ami
that It was expended with his knowledge
and consent. If the committee
goes into this charge, which tlv- Republican
leaders know to be about
the weakest of the several lie has
made, it will be asked to investigate
the return made by W. Wyke Bcall,
Treasurer of the Democratic State
Committee. Col. Beallftnade affidavit
that his committee spent but J8.000.
ti is not denied taht this was probably
all that went through Beall's
hands as treasurer, but in Marion
county alone the Republicans have
knowledge of the expenditure of a
much larger sum in behalf of the
Democratic ticket. Other counties
were in proportion. Politicians here
say that a candid investigation of
this would result in some sensational
disclosures.
Chilton?unembarrassed by the
memory of how he and C. \V. Watson
reached the Senate iu 1911?Is turning
every wheel in the party machinery
ho can get his hands on, to get
Senator Sutherland ousted. Democrats
here say that he is obcessed
with the Idea that il' he can Just force
