Shooting Affray at Shithfield.—
The Smithfleld, Pa., cofrespondent
of the I.'nionlown Standard says:
An unfortunate shooting affair on
I last Friday evening lias created some
thing of a sensation in Smi.thfiekl and
caused more or less bad feeling. As
the matter will probably reach the
courts where the real facts will come
to light through legal course, we re
frain from Choosing between the var
ious rumors now afloat. Suffice it to
say that in a fuss in front of “Seat”
Collier'son the above even ing,between
Collier and William Abraham, the
former fired a revolver at the latter,
the ball taking effect in the forehead
but glancing upward and barely
j escaping fa La I work. As it is, Abrn
i ham’s scalp is fractured and lie is
much hurt. Information has been
made against Mr. and Mrs. Collier
and they were held in $1,000 by Jus
tice Core, to await a further hearing.
Whisky was the cause.
The Local Paper the Best.—The
local paper is the best paper in the
world. All city papers cannot sup
ply the place of the home paper. No
other contains the marriages and
deaths, to say Dothing of the divorces
and births. No other paper gives
the time of the next bail, picnic or
public meeting; no other publishes
the roll of honor of the public schools,
no other discusses the affairs of the
town and county, your farm products,
your church services, festivals and
public schools; it gives the local
news which can be obtained from no
other source. Everybody reads jt,
and every business firm should ad
vertise in it. This is why the local
paper is the best in the world and
the best advertising medium for its
circulation. It reaches every house
hold, no family library is complete
without its local paper, and no
live business will do well without it.

Killed hy a Runaway IIokse—
Sad and Sudden Death of Jacob
S. Protzman.—News was received
here on Sunday morning last of the
death of Jake Protzman a well known
resident of this place, which occurred
at an early hour on that morning at
the residence of a Mr. Stone at the
mouth of Duukard. Deceased had
been absent from here two or three
days taking orders for shoes at
Greensboro. On Friday evening
while on his way home the horse he
was driving became frightened and
ran away and it is supposed dragged
the unfortunate man about 150 yards
literally thumping him to death on
the stony road. Mr. Stone’s folks
heard the horse running and heard
him thunder across the bridge that
spans Dunkard near its mouth.
Some of them went to see what had
caused the commotion when they
found Protzman lying by the road
side unconscious about 50 yards
above the bridge. He was taken up
and carried to a house near by and a
physician summoned, but ho never
entirely recovered consciousness.
Dr. Mackey was called on Saturday
morning and did all that medical
skill could, but the poor man was
fatally hurt and lingered until (5
o’clock on Sunday morning when
death relieved him of his sufferings.
The remains were brought to the res
idence of his mother in this plaee on
Sunday evening and were interred
in the Presbyterian grave yard on
Monday evening.
Dit. Morris Cures a Lady’s De
formity.—For a number of years
Mrs. McMillan, a highly respected
lady of Doddridge county, suffered
from a cancer on her nose. It made
such progress that the removal of
her nose became necessary thus
leaving an unsightly deformity upon
the good lady’s face. She endured
this for a long time which caused
her much discomfort and annoyed
and embarrassed her friends. Hav
ing heard of Dr. Morris’ skill and
success in surgical matters of this
kind she applied to him, and a
short time ago he completed for her
a new nose that not only hides her
deformity,but by its perfect shape and
color restores the natural contour of
her face. It can scarcely be told
from the natural member and rests
on her face with perfect case and
comfort to her. She is delighted
with the success of the work and
after having worn it a few days told
a friend that she never paid for any
thing she had ever bought more
cheerfully than she did for her new
nose. Dr. Morris has contrived
several line surgical devices of this
sort during his years of practice but
none more perfect than this one. It
speaks volumes for his skill and suc
cess as a practitioner. Had he di
rected his attention to this branch
of surgery he would no doubt have
achieved the same degree of emi
nence he has attained in the (lgntal
profession.
The Postponement of the Cen
tennial.—The Centennial Committee
on Thursday evening last held a
meeting to further consider the ar
rangements for the celebration.
And after considering about the
matter they concluded to “advance
backwards.” A resolution was
adopted postponing the celebration
until it shall be ascertained when
the said road will be completed to
the town. It is exceedingly desira
ble that the-railfoad shall be com
pleted before we celebrate, nnd inas
much as the authorities of the road
have indicated that they cannot
reach Morgantown by the 29th it
was perhaps the wisest thing the
committee could do to postpone.
But when the people of Monongalia
county set themselves about doing
anything in the way of celebrating
they do not like to be disappointed
and we have no doubt but many of
our good people will be sadly disap
pointed in this. However they must
recollect that this action of the
committee does not discontinue the
celebration. This the committee
would not assume to do. The people
in mass meeting assembled determin
ed to have a celebration, and this
committee was appointed to fix a
time and make all necessary ar
rangements. They proceeded partly
to execute the work for which they
were appointed by designating a
time and making some of the neces
sary arrangements. Now they have
concluded not to celebrate on the
day fixed but at a subsequent day to
be agreed upon hereafter. Of course
if no other day should be agreed on
the celebration will “g» by the
board.” This %hpuld not be. The
committee have been entrusted with
this matter nnd they should not
abandon it. If the committee are
determined not to celebrate until the
railroad is finished let them corre
spond with the railroad officials and
find out if possible when the road
will be done and then appoint anotii
er time and go to work in earnest.
Our people know no such word as
fail in matters of this kind and if
the railroad is not finished this fall
let us celebrate anyhow! That’s the
sort of “fellers” we arc!
A < orkesi'ondent of the Union town
Standard, writing from Wharton, Pa.,
gay*: “Our neightioni over in Pres
ton county, W Va., are talking a
great (teal just now about a new rail
road which they say is to be built
goon from Tunnelton on the B. & O.
main line by way of Kingwood,
Bruccton and Clifton and then across
the mountains to Faireliance.” This
road is being rapidly ouslicd to com
pletion as far as Kingwood and if
there is a disposition to go further it
had lietter lie brought to Morgantown
over the Iron Valley route in part.
No doubt our people would patronize
the enterprise as it would pay them
so lo do.
Rev. T. B. Hughes to Go West.—
From the Parkersburg Journal we
learn that Rev. T. B. Hughes will re
move to Iowa. In referring to his
departure that paper says: Rev. T.
B. Hughes, pastor of the M. E.
Church, has received notice of his
transfer to the Iowa Conference aDd
his appointment to the M. E. Church
in Grinnell. This is one of the flour
ishing churches of that State and lo
cated in one of the best towns. It
is in every respect a most desirable
appointment. The members of the
M. E. Church of this city and the
West Virginia Conference will learn
with regret of Mr. Hughes’ departure.
He has endeared himself not only to
the members of his own church but
to’ all with whom he has been brought
in contact during Ins two years’ res
idence in our city. His place in the
Methodist councils of this State, where
lie has labored for so many years,
will be hard to fill. We are not ad
vised as to the time of his departure, j
but presume it will J)e shortly after j
conference, which meets in Charles
ton next week.
Make the Town Always Look
Well.—A stranger making his ap
l«rance in a town always notices the
condition of the streets for order and
cleanliness. At this time there is an
unusual accumulation of old wagons,
lumber piles and property of different
description. Our good citizens should
not allow themselves to become care
less in this regard. They should rec
ollect that the streets and alleys are
for the public to travel upon, and
that if these public thoroughfares
are obstructed wrongfully and a
person lawlully traveling on such
street or alley is injured by such ob
stacles somebody is liable for dama
ges. So that they are nt least two
good reasons why people should not
place such property on the streets.
First it is unsightly and causes the
town to present a bad appearance.
Second such things are dangerous
obstructions in the public highway
and may lead to damages. And the
town authorities should notice that
such things shall not be allowed on
the streets for in case of accident the
town may lie called on to pay the
damages.
Our Old Grave Yards.—Morgan
town has within its corportate limits
two grave yards. Two old dilapida
ted thickly populated grave yards.
That is just two more than it ought
to have. There is always enough
inside a municipal corporation to
poison the water and make it impure
without burying the dead there. It
is not difficult to procure ground out
side the corporation wherein to bury
the dead and it is about as easy to
carry the dead outside as not. It is
only a matter of time when persons
will of necessity have to <juit inter
ring in the grave yards in the town
and they might as well quit first ns
last. In fact it ought never to have
been begun. The town council have
a right to regulate the matter and
they have shown some disposition to
be enterprising. Why do they not
take this matter in hands? By so
doing they will become public bene
factors. These old grave yards are
good for nothing but to depreciate
property adjacent to them and to in
jure the health of the people by in
jecting the water that percolates
from them into the wells and springs
from which we drink.
The New Monongahela Steam
er—R. L. De.main the Pilot—The
Fmest Boat on the River.—The
Pittsburgh Post of last week gives
the following description of the new
steamer recently launched for the
Navigation Company; The new and
elegant passenger steamer the Adam
Jacobs, steamed into port yesterday
mGrning for the first time. She is
beyond question the handsomest
packet ever launched in the pictures
que Monongahela. She is furnished
handsomely throughout. The main
saloon, finished in cherry and ash, is
tastefully decorated. The ladies’
saloon, which is richly upholstered,
is shut off by a costly portiere. The
chandeliers and fixtures are highly
colered and beautiful, and the whole
furuishment is harmonious and at
tractive.
The cabins are large and capacious
finished with imitation of. ash and
walnut, and elegantly furnished with
furniture to correspond. The promi
nade gaurds are wide and roomy.
The entire boat is lighted with Me
Tighe electric light, the first light of
the kind ever used ou the Mononga
hela river, and is pronounced a grand
success. The painting throughout
is first class in every particular.
The Adam Jacobs carries three
steel boilers 34 feet long by 38 inches
in diameter and two engines with 17
inch cylinders, and 5 feet 0 inch
stroke. Her length is 166 feet, beam
32 feet, and depth of hold 4 feet 10
inches, and draws less than 30 inch
es—a foot less than any other Mon
ongahela boat.
The boat is named for the late
Captain Adam Jacobs, who was pres
ident of the line for over thirty years,
and was built under the supervision
ofCaptain A. O. Cook, now in com
mand of the steamer J. G. Blaine, and
Captain S. S. Graham, present Super
intendent of the Pittsburgh, Browns
ville and Geneva Packet Company.
The cabins were built by Leonard &
Co., of Brownsville, and the machin
ery was placed in position by J. Iler
bertson & Son, of the same place.
The painting was done by Boggs &
Co., Pittsburgh, and the chandeliers
were furnished by Cavitt & Pollock,
this city.
Captain M. A. Cox, formerly in
command of the J. G. Blaine, has
charge of the Jacobs, and there is no
doubt but he will make the new boat
a success. A. A. J. Gaskill, form
erly clerk on the Blaine, ornaments
the office, I. R. Beazell second clerk.
The pilots are R. L. Demain and
George L. Hendrickson, and the en
gineers C. L. Gaskill and John Cav
enaugh.
The Adam Jacobs will alternate
with the J. G. Blaine, leaving the
wharf boat at 4. P. M. every Tues
day, Thursday and Saturday, run
ning through to Geneva. The Ger
mania will be the regular morning
packet to Rice's Landing, leaving at
8 o’clock.

Death or William Geay, Esq.—:
\Ve chronicle to day the death of
William Gray, Esq., which occurred ]
at his resilience at Gray's Landing,
in Monongahela township, this conn
ty, at 5 o’clock on Wednesday morn '
ing last, September 9th, 1885, after a i
protracted illness. The • deceased
was aged about seventy live years,
and we believe, was a highly respect
ed citizens. Mr. Gray by a long'
life of business tact, shrewdness and
energy had accumulated a large
share of this world’s goods, being
tlie owner of several thousand acres
of valuable land in Greene and Fay
ette counties, as well as the extensive
Distillery at Gray’s Landing, and
his wealth is variously estimated at
from six hundred thousand to one
million dollars. Hut wealth is no
bar against the insatiate archer, who'
comes with unerring certainty to the
high, low and intermediate. A wid
ow and four children, survive tht
aged husband and father. The re
mains of the deceased were interred
in the family burying ground at Ma
pletown, on Thursday afternoon last,1

Last Night's Council Meeting,—
The Ordinance Providing for the
New Street Passed.—The council of
the town of Morgantown held a meet
ing at the Mayor’s office on Tuesday
night which was what may be term
ed a business meeting. The F. M. &
P. railroad was present in the persons
of of Hon. James Morrow, Jr. Col. J.
O. Moore, Supterintendent of con
struction, and Major Whiting, Chief
Engineer. Hon. W. C. McGrew*
Vice President and Col. A. Fairchild,
a director was also present. These
gentlemen were courteously received
by the Mayor and council and they
made a candid Statement of their
wants and intentions. Judge Mor
row made the Statement that their
road was about to be brought within
the town and that when they came
they were anxious to so locate their
depot as to accommodate the town
and themselves the best they' could;
and that the best place evidently for
the depot was the site selected by
their engineer between Bridge Street
and the mouth of Deckers creek. And
that the Company had no intention
of taking it outside of the borough
to any out of the way or inconven
ient place unless absolutely driven to
do so. The gentlemen also stated
that wheu these preliminary matters
were settled they proposed at once to
ex|>end in the construction of a costly
depot building and other improve
ments not lsss than $20,000 between
Bridge street and the mouth of Deck
er’s creek and all they asked was
that when they made these improve
ments they should have convenient
and suitable means of egress and
ingress. Judge Morrow’s remarks
were made in such a candid manner
as to convince the council they
were being dealt with fairly and
the council was disposed to deni
in the same spirit. The necessary
ordinances were prepared and passed
by the Council. Of course there
were points urged on both sides which
were not acceded to, but conclusions
were reached which were in the main
satisfactory to all parties. Theordi
nonce providing for the issuing of
bonds todefray the expenscof opening
thestreet8lcadingto the depot are pub
lished with the Mayor’s proclamation
in another coulran. The responsibility
is now with the people of the town.
The Council will be hampered in the
matter of opening these streets should
the people refuse to vote the funds to
defray the expense of purchasing the
right of way. The grading which
will cost not less than $1,500, will not
cost the town a cent. On the whole
the arrangement is evidently the
most advantngious that could be
made, both for the town and the
railroad. The question has been a
troublesome one, but we hope it is
now in a fair way to be satisfactorily
settled.
Death of a Well Known West
ern Man Who has Friends Here.—
From the Minneapolis, Minn., Jour
nal of the 15th ire clip the following
concerning the death of Wm. W.
McNair of that city. He is known
to numerous Morgantown people:
Wm. W. McNair, the-well known
millionaire lawyer, died at his resi
dence, 609 Fifth street southeast,
this morning at 10 o’clock. The dis
ease was locomotor ataxia, an affec
tion of the spinal cord. It was gen
■orally understood that Mr. McNair
was suffering from an incurable dis
ease but no one had suspected that
death was so near at hand, and the
news came with a great shock to his
family and friends.
The disease from which McNair
died first made its appearance five
years ago. For three years past it
has caused him a great deal of pain
and undermined his general health,
although he was still able to appear
in his office as usual. Three weeks
ago he took to his bed, and never
rose from it.
William W. McNair was born in
Livingston county, New York, Jan
uary 4, 1836. He was educated,
reared in New York, and lived there
until 1854, when he went west. He
lived for three years in Wisconsin,
where he studied law with Senator
Doolittle, and in 1857 removed to
Minneapolis. Soon afterwards he
"was admitted to practice in the
United States federal courts and soon
took a leading position among the
lawyers of that time. He was elect
ed county attorney in 1861 and was
afterward mayor of the town of St.
Anthony for two years. In 1862 he
married in Virginia, Miss Louise
Wilson, sister of Hon. E. M. Wilson.
The first law firm with which he was
connected was Beeman & McNair.
He afterwards formed a partnership
with E. M. Wilson, which lasted until
1870, when Mr. Wilson went to com
gress. Mr. McNair formed a part
nership with Judge Locbren, under
the name of Lochren & McNair. Mr.
Gil Allan was afterward admitted and
the firm became Lochren, McNair &
Gilfillan. This continued until Mr.
Lochren became judge, and Mr. Mc
Nair opened a private office.
As a jurist he was very successful,
and his sarcastic, incisive style of
speaking made him a formidable ad
versary at the bar. In the past two
or three years he had retired from
active practice. He was one of the
heaviest stockholders in the Security
bank, and would in all probability
have eventually been its president.
His personal estate was very large.
He owned a farm of one thousand
acres within the city limits, and other
property valued in all at over $1,000,
000. He was building a handsome
new residence on Linden avenue and
Thirteenth street, and had almost
completed plans for a magnificent
boulevard through his outside pos
sessions, which lie was to give to the
city. He was politically a strong
democrat, and a leader in his party.
He has often been nominated to im
portant public trusts, but owing to
the strong local republican majority
has seldom been elected. In 1874
he run for congress, but was de
feated.

Prof. A. J. Hare after visiting
Shepherdstown and viewing the sit
uation in person, declined to accept
the proffered position in the State
Normal School at that place. He at
once returned to Grafton and resum
ed his old position in the public
schools here which was still open.
He found the school at Shepherds
town, in a rundown condition, and
with the salary conditioned on the
number of students in attendance.
It promised less than the pay of his
position in our schools.—Grafton

Hon. B. S. Morgan, State Superin
tendent of Schools, has been among
friends in Morgantown this week.
“Ben” as he is familiarly called here
at his old homo looks quite natural.
His honors apparently sit comfort
ably upon his shoulders and he
looks but little the worse of the wear.
Hehas become thoroughly interested
in his work and talks enthusiastically
about the prospect of educational
matters in West Virginia. The Su
perintendent is of course a warm
friend of his alma mater and says he
has never failed to do all he could to
bring about n cordial good feeling
between the University and Normal
School men in the State, and thinks
he has done some good in that re
spect for both the University and
the Normal Schools. He is highly
gratified at the prospects of the
University as well as the other
schools of the State.

go into business in the Pennsylvania
oil region.
We note with pleasure that the
Assistant Postmaster General has re
cently appointed our excellent friend
Mark G. Lester, postmaster at Wades
town Monongalia county. This is
another first class appointment and
reflects great credit on the depart

On Monday evening last. S. W.
Hall, Esq., sustained painful injuries
by falling between the ground-joists
of the new addition now being built
to his Monroe street residence. The
accident was the result of a misstep
taken while walking on the joists.
One of his limbs was so badly bruis
ed by the fall that he has since been
confined to his home.

was read by the Secretary as follows:
Baltimore, September 10, 1885.
Mr. John J. Brown. Chairman Mu
nicipal Centennial Committee Mor
gantown.
Dear Sir:—1 beg to acknowledge
your favor of July 30, and have defer
red answering the same hoping that 1
could, by waitiug until the present
time, give the assurance asked for,
that our line would lie completed and
in running order in time for your
celebration. I doubt very much
whether the same can be accomplish
ed b3' the time indicated as we will
be delayed in getting the necessary
rails for completion of tracklaying,
and do not think that the road will
lie ready to open in time for the Cen
tennial. Yours Truly,
Thos. M. Kino,
2nd Vice President.
Thereupon the Chairman intro
duced the following resolution:
Resolved, That in view of the fore
going information received by the
General Committee of the Municipal
Centennial, that the Fairmont, Mor
gantown and Pittsburgh Railway
will probably not be completed to
Morgantown, on or before the time
fixed for said Centennial Celebration,
the General Committee deem it ex
pedient to postpone said Celebration
until the said Railway is completed
to our town.
Said resolution after being duly
seconded and fully discussed was
adopted by the Committee.
On motion the New Dominion
and Post, and other newspapers hav
ing an interest in our Celebration,
are requested to publish the proceed
ings of this meeting.
On motion the meeting adjourned.

The recruits to the cadet corps
now number twenty-eight: They
were divided into companies Monday
evening and will be practiced in the
drill of the company for some time
we suppose.
The accessions to the literary so
cieties are quite large. At the last
meeting of the societies, the Parthe
non received fourteen members into
full connection and the Columbian
sheltered eight more in the fold.
The societies ought surely to do good
work now with such an increased
membership. Both societies passed
resolutions in favor of compulsory
attendance on their meetings.
Considerable and vigorous “kick
ing’' was indulged in by sundry ca
dets when the promotions were |>ost
ed Monday morning. If there is any
thing that a W. V. U. cadet can do
better than anything else, that thing
is to “kick” when an ill wind blows
more stripes on some other fellow's
arm than he himselfenjoys.
The University boys came out sec

That there are more than forty

That Bush manipulates the Preps

That B. C. Wilson boars his Adju

want that correspondent to know
that he has enough to do to attend to
his own business and school, least it
should die and he might not have
members enough to bury it, as he re
marked. Perchance he is not aware
we expected to close our school on
