"VA- WEDNESDAY. JUNE 9. 1909. NO. 48 CHARLESTON DRY COUNCIL MONDAY NIGHT VOTED DRY BY 24 TO 14. Charleston is positively to be dry after July first. The city council Monday night upheld its former ac tion by the decisive vote of 24 to 14. Fred Paul Grosscup made strenu ous efforts to introduce a resolution to call for a special election to de-' termine the sense of the people on' this great question, but was bitterly opposed by the dry element, led by j Mr. Wertz. Mr. Grosscup* s motion was prevented from being passed upon by parliamentary objections by which it was ruled out of order. The action of the council that de- ' termined that this city should have no saloons was taken upon a resolu tion offered by Mr. Wertz whereby all sections of the license ordinance submitted by the board of affairs, that related to the granting of li censes were stricken out. Mr. Grosscup offered a resolution as an amendment to Wertz" s amendment that called for a special election with the councilmen acting as election officers. After some discussion this resolu tion was ruled out of order. Mr. Mathes said that there was no law to make the council ask the will of the |>eople, and that the peo ple had no right to expect a voice on the question as when the council was elected the jieople gave to its forty members the ripht and the l>ower to settle the question for them. FOURTH JULY CELEBRATION. Four weeks yet remain until the Fourth of July, ample time in which to get up a good old time rousing celebration. Mr. Mark Shiflet tells us he is willing t9 give his service as manager, which insures the success of the undertaking from the start. All that is needed to fill the town with visitors that day is the donation of a few dollars by each of our mer chants. Mr. Shiflet thinks it could lie done with $100, fifty of which would be paid to our band 1k>vs for their services. The remainder going for the different races, greasy pig, ixile, etc. The money spent for this event would be returned four fold or more by the great crowd sure to be here. BURNED BY GAS. Mrs. Taylor Clendenin, of Kana wha Street, was painfully burned about the head and face, last Friday, while starting the fire in her gas rook stove. Care should always be taken to have the lighted match close to the burners before turning on the gas. By so doing many ac cidents may be averted. GAS FOR R4YENSW00D. There is no longer any doubt that Ravenswood will have gas by early next winter. The comi>any which is constructing the line from Roane county to Columbus have ordered the pipe for an 18 inch main which will pass through the extreme edge of the corporation limits and its delivery will begin in a very short time. The franchise fixes the maximum price at 25 cents per thousand. ATTENTION, CITIZENS!

The game between the local team and the high salaried professional (?) team at Parkersburg Sunday resulted | in a score of 7 to 7 the game being stopped in the fifth inning, after a number of rotten decisions by the umpire, coupled with a lot of dirty hall playing by the Profs, (?) It was evident from the start of . the game, that the Parkersburg team j>ro|>osed to win, if not by fair means, by foul. The umpire was the worst ever, and was roundly scored by the spectators as well as the players for his bum decisions. Our team stood for it as long as their patience would , last, and finally when it was so plain ly demonstrated that the umpire was not going to give them liny show whatever, Mgr. Shiflet ordered the boys off the field. All the games played this season by the team here have been free from squabbles and their reputation for clean ball playing has been favor ably commented upon by the visit ing teams, so they cannot be blamed for their actions in this mntter, when it was so plainly evident that they wen- being robbed out of the game. Mgr. Shiflet was unable to collect the bonus money due him on this game and left it in the hands of an attorney who will probably make it cost them a little more before they arc thru with it. | The boys feel pretty sore over their treatment and think it will be sometime before they go back to| i Parkersburg again to play the Profs. j Several other clubs have received the same treatment, notably Clarks-' burg and Middle|>ort, and if the management of the Parkersburg "Profs." expect clubs of respect ability to ?visit them, thc.v?h?luM'CsH ? a halt to the robber methods practic ed there last Sunday. The Nelsonville, Ohio, team will be here next Sunday for a game. 1 This team is one of the fastest teams in Central Ohio. Jack Taylor who : was in the box for the Columbus ? team last season will pitch for them. ' ' A large attendance is expected as ' ! this is one of the best teams sched-' ! uled for this season. J. FRED HOLLOWAY. The following is taken from The 1 New York Morning Telegraph: "Swat Milligan" promises to rip; ' things up in slang bang fashion. ! j Swat has been undergoing a stren- ; l uous course of Spring training under the direction of his discoverer, Boze- j man Bulger, and if he hits 'em out behind the footlights the way he has j been swatting "em in practice the vaudeville managers will have to de- j : vise a new sire headline. Milligan j certainly promises to go some. In the "Swat Milligan" farce there will be four unusually clever people. Little Viena Bolton, who scored big ils the little sister in "Paid in Full," and J. Fred Hollo-' way, who played Pegleg in "Mrs. Wiggs," will take off two tough kids. Vaughn Trevor, who won favor in "Tom Jones" will play an Englishman, and Frank Jones will play the great and only "Swat."? Morning Telegraph. Mr. Holloway is well and favor ably known to our people here, and his many friends will be glad to know that in securing his present engagement he has not only won recognition from the New York man agers, of his natural ability, but has proved that perseverance always (4 ? . wins out. L 0.0. F. DECORATION. The Point Pleasant Band furnish ed music for the decoration service for the I. O. O. F. Lodge at Galli polis, last Sunday. Mr. Thomas Gordon, of Chillioche, O., made an ] excellent address _which was listened to with special' interest by all Odd Fellows as well as many others. JUNE WEDDING ALICE CAPEHART WEDS DR. WALTER LINCOLN. OF PHILADELPHIA. Those so fortunate as to be in cluded in the list of invited guests who witnessed the marriage of Miss Alice Capehart, the only surviving daughter of Hon. James Capehart to Dr. Walter Lincoln, of Philadelphia, will carry through life a happy re membrance of the beauty and sim plicity of this wedding of Thursday, June 3rd, 1909. The scene was so different from [those usually solemnized under like circumstances. This wedding, how ever, was in keeping with the taste of the bride. All who knew her will recall that, so far as possible, her life has been spent under the magnificent forest trees that sur round her ancestral home, or riding or driving under the open skies of her Florida home. It was no sur prise when she announced there would be no elaborate preparations for her wedding, that it would be solemnized on the veranda, that there would be no trailing white robes, veils or orange blossoms and no professional caterers or decorators. Loving hearts and skillful hands, however, soon transformed one "end of the wide, wljite-columned veranda (the bride's selected spot for the |<erformance of the ceremony) into the semblance of a woodland bower. An improvised lattice thickly inter woven with graceful sprays of tender young willows, artistically interspers ed with boughs of sweet syringa in full bloom, made a charming back?~ ground against which were banked great clusters of these pure white blossoms, thus carrying out the adopted color ) scheme of white and green. A large green velvet rug with the two green kneeling cushions decorated with immense white satin bows, completed the preparations. When the little Misses Polly j Simpson and Stella Gibbons, daintily attired in sjiotless white, had parted the folding doors from the house to the veranda, the girlish bride appear ed leaning on the arm of the^jroom. She wore a becoming gray tailored suit. The groom's traveling suit of gray completed the costumes, while the flowing white robes of the Rector Rev. J. H. Gibbons as he pro nounced the ring ceremony of the Episcopal Church, rounded out a picture so beautiful in its simplicity that it was indeed not art but na ture. At the close of the ceremony and congratulations and best wishes bad been extended, the Guest Book was ? brought forth and the following were registered: Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Gibbons and Miss Stella Gibbons, Mr. and Mrs. J. H. \\ indon, Mr. R. P. Liter and Misses Bessie and Gertrude Liter, Dr. E. J. Mossman, Dr. and Mrs. H. A. Barbee. Mr. and Mrs. P. H. Steenbergen, Mrs. J. D. McCulloeb, Mr. and Mrs. O. C. Lewis, Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Steenbergen, Mr. P. S. Lewis, Miss Mary McCulIoch, Mr. and Mrs. E. B. Jones, Mrs. J. S. Spencer, Miss Alice Gray, of Boston, - Miss Van Dymne, of Delaware, O., . Dr. Lincoln, of Cleveland, Mr. James [Capehart and Miss Polly Simpson. The happy couple were driven to the B. & O. Depot going to Pitts burg, thence to Philadelphia for a few days visit and will sail today, . June 9, on the Hamburg Americas Line Ship Moltke for a three months sojourn in Switzerland.
