A pitiful tragedy that occurred early Friday evening at Lewis on the C. & O., a short distance this side i?f St. Albans, ended the life of Lafe Burns, one of the youngest brake men in the employ of the company. Burns was trying to make a coupling when he got his right foot caught in 11 frog, and was run down by his t>wn train and instantly killed. His right leg and arm were ground to pieces but the remainder of his body was urimarred. The body was placed on No. l.S| and brought to this city where it was prepared for burial by the John ton Undertaking company. It was j shipped to the home of the victim at Leon, W. Va., this morning, where the funeral will be held tomorrow. The tragedy was one of marked pathos because of the fact that the victim was a very young man. being scarcely 24 years of age and single. It is said, he was engaged to a young woman of Leon, to whom he was to; be married tfte latter part of this month. He had been running out of Russell for several months. His brother, Walter, met with same fate a few years ago. The father, mother and family have our deepest sympathies. ?Huntington Advertiser, Saturday. GONE TO OKLAHOMA.

The democratic executive commit-' tee of the Fifth congressional dis trict met at the Hotel Frederick at 12:20, Saturday. Huntington was chosen as the place and July 20, the date for the nominating convention. James F. Beavers, of Kenova, chairman of the committee, presided, and W. H. Stoke, of Welch, the secretary, made official record of tile proceeding There were seven mem bers of the committee present, in addition to three proxies. There was no opposition to the se lection of Huntington as the place of meeting, and July 20, was chosen by unanimous consent as the date for holding the convention. The basis of representation was fixed at one delegate from each coun tv for every fifty votes cast for Hon. Louis Bennett, the democratic ncmi ince for governor in 1908. The secretary was directed to in form the chairman of each of the county committees of the action of the district committee, and to re quest them to call county conven tions for the purpose of selecting; delegates to the nominating conven tion. A number of prominent Democrats in addition to the committeemen at tended the meeting and evinced keen interest in the proceedings. Among those i.. attendance were .1. F. Beavers, of Kcnova; VV. H. Stokes, of Welch : Warren Whaley, of Point Pleasant; .1. L. Peters, of Logan: Major E. A. Bennett, com- 1 mitteeman for Cabell county. Warren C. Whaley was in attend ance from here anil made a strong effort to have the convention meet at this place, and would have been successful had our county been sit uate? nearer the center of the dis trict.

Tuesday last they played a double-header, Ashland taking both games, Friday we won from them by a seore of 2 to 1, with Dashner in the box. Saturday's game should have been chalked up to our credit, h.-.d it not been for a couple of errors at a critical time. Keuhn pitched this game and made a good showing, letting the Ashlanders down with only four hits. The team come home late Saturday 1 night and the game Sunday with Ashland was called off on occount of rain. Monday's game resulted in the score of 11 to 2 in favor of Ashland, and was the best exhibition of how not to play base ball, ever witness on the local grounds. It was very evident to the spectators that there was something radically wrong with the team. For some time there has been a feeling of jealousy among cer tain players on the team and they have been "knocking" one another. Itculminated Saturday in a slight disagreement between two of the players and should have been stop ped right then and there, but it was not thought that it would in any way interfere with the playing of good ball by those involved. Mon day's game, however, went to show that it is impossible to play the game with a disrupted team. The Ash | land team hit the ball all over the 1 lot, making two home runs in as many innings, to say nothing of the singles tliey added to there record. The public feels, and justly, that they are entitled to the best efforts of every man on the team, when they put up their money at the gate. It is to be hoped that the offending players will take notice and in the future play the game for all it is worth. This is not intended as a *'knock* but as a piece of friendly advice, which comes direct from headquarters. Tuesday's game was a good one, resulting in the score of 7 to 0 in our favor. The game was close throu ghout and all of our boys acquitted themselves in a creditable manner. Dasher pitched up to the ninth in ning, when he was taken out and Kuehn substituted. Manager Mack was a Ti Cobbs on bases Tuesday. Tuesday's game was a series of ac-; cidents, Pickle got hit in the eye by ? a hot grounder, that took a false bound, and manager Mack had his, arm hurt when one of the Montgom (continued on page eight.)

The sincere, active, tcnaperanee workers were happy in the knowledge that they had accomplished a good for which they have been long seek ing, the paid agents of ami-saloons league felt pleased that the action had given them a chance to point to their work, and the men v ho have been hoping for an opportunity to re sume tliiir broken up business and the business men who are of the opin ion that a dry town is an injury to t'le city, recicved the verdict wtil gloom, According to Judge Shepherd action of the court was taken, or a! least his vote was cast for a drj Charleston, bccause of an editorial is the Gazette, which declared that ni. investigation of the court house was needed anb because there bad been written a letter from one saloon keep er to another, declaring that if the town was kept wet that Shepherd would be impeached.
