The Argus desires to say once more to its numerous correspondents that it will publish their letters as fast as it can spare the space. If the Journal will make a careful investigation it will find that the majority of the men who asked for a reduction in their assessment are the ones who voted for the Dawson tax laws. Will the Journal class them as "tax dodgers ?” I.ast Friday morning we had a regular freeze, the the first frost we had had to hurt anything and it was a singer and cooked the flowers and the late garden truck to a finish. Since then the weather has been behaving beautifully and has been fine. The postmaster-editor of the Jour nal must not be taken too serious tn his midnight ravings. The "pie" which he is feasting on now must not be lost to him in his contest with the Rev. Tittle he will have to rerurn to the sod and harness up Buck and Berry and cultivate the sod which promises so much to him under tho Dawson tax laws. Our special offer to new subscrib ers is being taken advantage of by smart people all over the country and a lot of names to our list on account of it. Several old subscrib ers have wanted to take advantage of it and tried to come in under these terms, when they were back on their subscription before this offer was made, which is for New Subscribers only. The thing which is interesting the taxpayers of Preston county is the Dawson tax laws. They want to know whether they are going to increase or decrease their taxes. This is the question which the peo ple propose to settle and the Journal and the “Fridays ' cannot evade the issue. We are after them and we propose to keep after them until we drive them in their hole. We are giving our readers an ex tra amount of splendid reading now for the long winter evenings that are coming on. Have you noticed the splendid four page magazine section that we have been sending out the past two weeks. How well printed it is and splendidly illustra ted and full of live matter. We ex pect to keep this up and make no extra charge for it. You get it all for one dollar_ A Huntington paper in its write up of the recent EditorialAssociation meeting has this to say: Of these papers all were excellent, but that of J. Slidell Brown “Dead j Beat Subscribers," is deserving of special mention. For graceful hu mor and interest this paper was worthy of republication, and the extracts from Mr. Brown's paper, The Argus, were interesting exam ples of Mr. Brown’s well known abilities in this line. Now will our dead beats take warning and pay up or will they be exposed all over the State. The very latest thing out in news paperdom is The Thomas Sentinel, published at Thomas this State, every Friday and edited by William B. Allen, who is a writer of unusual ability, juding from some of his edi torials in the initial number. He is a son of the late Judge H. C. Allen, of Woodstocjc, Va., and a nephew of Col. Sam D. Gatewood, the fore man of The Argus Printing House. He bids fair to take the place of Braun’s Iconoclast and Revelations about as red hot as the gridiron of Hades for an early breakfast. I.OOKF.D OOOD TO IIIM AT FIRST Mr. Editor:—Pardon me. I do noi want to break into print, but I want to say one word about the new tax laws. I voted for them, because they told me they would reduce the State tax from 35 cents to 24 cents. That looked good to me. Being a Republican I naturally wanted to vote for my party. A while later they said they had reduced the State tax to 20 cents on the 1100 valuation. It was my turn to laugh and chide those who voted against the new tax laws. I will acknow ledge that I was feeling good. I am not feeling so good at the pre sent time. Shall I tell you why ? All right, I will. I had a piece of proj*rty, assessed it at |6oo. Where I paid 35 cents State taxes on my price of property under the old laws I will pay more on the same piece of property under the new laws, for six times the levy is bound to increase my taxes. Has my taxes been raised or lowered under the new tax laws ? Ask the idiot who told me my taxes would be rt• d*<rrf. That's all. Okr Who Was Fooled IIK S Mi l.(HIM.. It is a pitiful sight »o observe the heroic efforts of the postmaster edi tor of the Journal to render service to the King and the Machine for value received. The postmaster editor realizes, however, that the Journal is not the beacon light it has been in leading the host of Re publicans to "vote the ticket straight” that the Ring and its re tinue of oflfice-moDgcrs may revel in the lay of piedom. Hence the chronic belching of the postmaster editor until the very atmosphere he breathes swells to Heaven I Even the "Fridays” cannot alcviate his tortured brain. "THERE ARE OTHER?" Tiie Argus wants to call atten tion to the letter of "One Who Was 1'oolcd,” and add a few comments. He is not the only one who was caught by the reduction in the State tax from 35 cents to 20 cents. As the gentleman remarks "it look ed good to me.” It might be said that "it looked good”, to every one who did not take the pains to in vestigate the Dawson tax laws. Had the assessment of property not been revised the people would have gotten a reduction in taxes as pro mised them by the Machine and its followers. But when they said they would assess everthing at its "true and actual value” this should have set thoughtful men to thinking. "One Who Was Fooled” illustrates the point. His property was as sessed at $100 under the old law, but when Assessor Orr assessed it he put it at its "true and actual value,” which in his judgment was $600. AN hat is the result ? The property that "One Who Was Fooled” paid the State 35 cents on he will pay the State under the Dawson tax laws more in spite of the reduction in the levy and its to be regretted that the Journal and its "Fridays” are so thick-headed that they will tell you that "One Who Was Fool ed" will pay less tax on his property under the Dawson tax laws. Now we submit it to an honest public if it is not a waste of time to argue with such hide-bound par tisans. Many other cases might be enum erated to prove that the Dawson tax laws will increase taxation. There is no getting around. The Machine has got to go. School Matters. The following facts of interest to the patrons and friends of the King wood School, are taken from the Monthly Snmmarios for the flrst month, endng October 13: First Grade—Boys 30; girls 17; per cent of dally attendance 93, average daily attendance 33; oases of tardi ness 35; number neither absent nor tardy, 13: 8econd Grade—Boys 13; girls 18; por cent of daily attendance 90; average daily attendance 38; cases of tardi nose, 13, number neither absent nor tardy, 17. Third Grade—Boys 17; girls 31, ; per cent of daily attendance 95; average daily attendance 33; cases of tardiness 10, number neither absent nor tardy 14. Fourth Grade—Boys 17; girls 23; per cent of daily attendance 94; aver age daily attendance 34; cases of tardiness 15; number neither absent nor tardy 21. Fifth Grade—Boys 18; girls 8; per oent of dally attendance 91; Average daily attendance 32; cases of tardi ness 10; number neither absont nor tardy 7. 8i*th Grade—Boys 6; girls 20; per oent of dally attendance 97; average dally attendance 20; cases of tardiness 11; number niether absent nor tardy 14 High School boys 12; girls 19; percent of daily attendance 94; aver age daily attendance 25; cases of tardiness 19; number neither absent nor tardy 4. Total—Boys 103; girls 130; per cent dally attendance 04; average daily attendance 195; oases of tardiness 103; nnrnber neither ab sent nor tardy 89. Ibl*, It will be observed, shows an enrollroent of 229, an average per cent of dally attendance of 94 an average daily attendance of 190, a total tardiness of 103 and only 89 neither absent nor tardy. There is food for reflection here, for parent and taxpayer alike. The good peo pie of Kingwood generously tax them selves to provide the best possible school advantages for their yonth Every boy and girl in Kingwood should have the advantage of school ing offered; and have them every day that school is open, if they are not prevented by sickness or other good cause. We appeal to the parents to see to it that their children attend school as regularly and promptly as possible. Cordially co-operate with the teachers in securing the beet pos sible preparation of lessons assigned for home study. Tbe groat work of 'raining the yonth of yonr town is absolutely dependent upon the sym pathetic support of tbe parents On Tuesday of this week the monthly reports to parsnts for tbe first month were given to the pupils to carry home Parents should give oarefnl attention to these reports. I hey are for the parents, and not for tbe pnpils If these reports are not satisfactory, parents should co operate with the teachers in making them so Irregular attendance tardi ness, and tbe lack of preparation of lessons, are unfavorable conditions which parent and teaohor should | combine to improve.

OIMC OK AII IIK AT I.IM1 Some rotated and PrrlIncut Para graph* PertuimMg to 1'oor Pay People. In accordance with our promise we herewith give another chapter from the most interesting story ever published. These character sketches are as warm as love in harvest, and we feel for our delinquents, but can’t reach most of them. At the head of the list this time is Jacob S. Greaser, who left this county for “Maryland My Maryland” and hung up his hat over at Pekin in Allegheney county for a while. He got <6.75 worth of Argus before we got on to his worth and cut him off the weekly calling list of the paper. The first time a man fools us we blame him for it, but if he fools us any more we don’t blame anyone but ourself and we will “eat the Greaser” if he ever gets into us again. We don’t know what kind of a “duck" he is but suppose he is a Pekin duck, if he is still living at the same old place. We would like to furnish him another bill and get a pull at his feg, as one is too long and the other too short. We would like to keep this Greaser on the gridiron longer but as we have others to fry the fat out of, we must pass along. * * Grant Bower is another rising young man who never settles. He used to work for us several years ago and when he left here and in sisted on having the paper come to him every seven days, we could not reftise, although we knew he was a young man of great promise, but very poor pay. We sent the “Buck wheat Civilizer” to him for about five years and then refused to Grant his request any longer. He has been living at Uniontown, Pa., for several years and was the ice-man for awhile. He could pay up all right if he did not take up once in awhile and play Wild West, with a reserved seat at the Police Court. He is a rather shady Bower, but we will warm him up all right, if he does not let us see some of the “long-green.” * * * William R. Hennessey is not the man who has been made famous through his stub-pipe conversation with Mr. Dooley. Our Hennessey, or at least we have an interest in him, lived out in the red-brush near Kingwood for a number of years and took Tiie Argus so long as we would send it to him on promises and Irish blarney. He moved from here to Morgantown and started out to beat us out of what he owed us and bad luck over-took him at once. He lost his wife and what little pro perty he had and we have never gotten that money he owes us yet although he has gotten another wife long ago. He owed us $13 and we fear here is where the trouble is. We always knew thirteen was an unlucky number and we suppose Hennessey is afraid to change the figures. * * * A firm called Hazen & Co. oper ated over at Terra Alta several years ago and took The Argus in order to make a success of their business but they moved from there to West Union and finally dropped out of sight entirely owing us $4.25. We wrote them about it telling them we wanted the matter closed up on our books and the account transferred from our day book to our bank book but we never got to make the transfer, so we will make this ab stract anyhow. We never did be lieve in this Hazen business and now we are more convinced than ever that it ought not be allowed. • A fellow named Frank Watson used to lire at Tunnelton and be a great man up there among the min ers and in the Union, He took our paper till it ran up the scale to *6.75 and then jumped the claim and beat us out of it. He went to Shinnston and worked a while and from there to Enterprise where he played in the band and also into the affections of another mans wife and had to skip by the light of the moon to Pennsylvania where he has been operating since. He was not pretty at all, but had a gift of gab that went with the women and also with us for a while. We would like to tell more about him, as well as oth er fellows we know and who us do owe, but will have to break away here till next week and then we will spread ourselves and go after some more dead beats who have tried it on us.

The Social Life of the Capitol Is Again Opening Up for The Season. Kegular Correspondent of The Argus. Washington, Oct. 14, 1905.— A convention is being held in Wash* ington this week in which the bank* ing operations of the entire country and the investment and savings of all the people as opposed to specu lation and stocks are represented. This is the Rankers Annual Conven tion which is held this year in the Nation’s Capital. Three thousand bankers are In attendance and the banking interests of every part of the United States have representa tives here. The entertainment of this large body of important and in fluential citizensof the United States has been in keeping with the char acter of the assembly and it is ex pected that their deliberations will gain in influence from the personal contact with the executive office in contiol of national banks and the officials in control of the national currency that the delegates will have. The legislators upon whom the country depends for banking laws will be represented and take a part in the discussion of measures pro viding for a more elastic currency, and other provisions for the greater safety and wiser investment of the funds of the people. The President will formally receive the delegation and he will be consulted on the pol icy of an amendment to the Nation al banking law authorizing the loan ing of money on real estate to the extent of twenty per cent of the cap ital stock and also on Congressional legislation touching the interests of the batiks. Orlando C. Crane, cashier of the bank at Terra Alta, was in attendance from Preston county. Secretary Shaw's message to the bankers is published in the souvenir volume which is presented to each of the bankers. It is called “The Public Credit” and contains a frank statement which rather astonished a number of the recipients. He says, “the American banker is not always as conservative as one would wish; the desire for big dividends is alto gether too potv nt with many )>oards of directors.” It is unfortunate that in an «ulum which has been unusually fine the weather should have selected this week for making itself most disa greeable. Following a day of heat rain has set in that will interfere to an extent with the trips to Mount Vernon, Arlington, and ihe out ot door cavalry drill which had been arranged for the visitors. The din ners and luncheons and suppers and theatre parties and White House re ception will not be interfered with by the weather and may prove am ple relaxation after the serious dis cussions which will occupy the ses sions. A banquet at the New Wil lard Hotel was given Tuesday night. 'Ihe tables were in the shape of the dollar mark, presumably to keep the banker from feeling homesick or possibly as a hint of what the affair cost. The menu was printed on a copy of the first feed and irrigation bond and the sovenirs were in the form of an exquisite silver coupon clipper which every one present knew how to handle. Perhaps with the idea of getting his hand in before the coming ses sion of the Senate the President has taken upon hitnself the task of re forming the game of foot ball. Ac cording to President Kliot of Har vard the President has tackled about as hard a job as he will have in the Senate and the betting on both is above even. In his war on “dirty” foot ball he has the sustaining coun sel and support of Secretaries Root and Taft. The former was present at the luncheon given to the coaches and athletic advisers of the different universities at the White House Tuesday and approved the speech of the President denouncing the brutality and unsportmanlike quality shown in some of the recent games. Both are in favor of the game as rough and wholesome sport but the President has set his seal on the work of eliminating the violent, al most homicidal, quality that has crept in lately. Secretary Taft has also delivered an ultimatum on the subject "I'll make an example of any West Point cadet who plays rough foot ball” he says, "I'll have him dismissed if necessary.” And so continues the merry work of re form. Washington is gradually emerging from its summer eclipse when its ninety thousand colored citizens are in the majority and becoming once more a white man’s town. With the President in the White fjoyse, Secretaries .Root, Shaw, Taft, Bona parte and Cortelyou in their homes and several of the western million aires having the shutters taken down from *heir front windows the city is again a social and political centre. 'I he President and his family rarely dine alone and although these din ners are not formal occasions there are generally a few distinguished guests lit the White House in the evening. The entertainment of the visiting bankers in several of the fine homes of the city, notably that of Secretary Shaw has given an im petus to social affairs which usually do not show life until New Years day. The President though is not much distracted by society this ear ly in the season and he is working in preparation of his message to Congress and in receiving the great numbers of delegations that are coming every day with their various requests and petitions. The usual number of cranks are arriving and departing each week but the Secret Service which guards the President is so capably organized that none have so far reached the President. '1 he public is as far as possible guarded from a knowledge of the various cranks who attempt to gain admission to the President for it is well known by the service that pub licity given to one unpleasant inci dent of the kind will develop a crop of like sort and multiply many times the work of the detectives. The President will start on his southern trip next week and in the meantime he is laying in a stock of health that will fortify him against the fever menace of the South. He allows nothing to interfere with his horse back rides which he takes in com pany with Mrs. Roosevelt or Secre tary Root every evening. He drives to the edge of the city about four o’clock every evening and there takes a horse which an orderly has in wailing foi him. He acknowl edges with heartiness the salutes of those who have assembled to see him mount and on his way to the park near by calls out “hello, boys” to the small urchins who stop their games and snatch off their caps as he passes.

OUll NEW YORK LE'TKIC. A it tn in is Getting Ifown to lltiHlneM Wbrtt Fashion is Doing -Timely Topics. For a long time, Miss Autumn has been evidently imagining her self to be a continuation of Sum. mer, for with the exception of one sharp snap, we have had a chain of beautiful, balmy days. Hut now come fog and cloud, and perchance Mr. Jacky Frost will happen along soon. The city is once again full of folks who b;long here, and every playhouse is doing a thriving busi ness. If we had twenty more the atres they would all come in for a share of patronage, there are so many people to be amused, in ihis congested “storm-centre." The shirt-waist suit will remain a fixture. T h e skirt model most favored for making it is plaited, the plaits being stitched to hip depth or a little below. Both the box and side plaited skirts frequently pos sess as many gores as plaits, thus the plaits keep a perfect line with the thread of the goods, the top is svelts, and the whole skirt has the pretty swing of style. The tunic is frequently seen. It does not follow straight lines, but is somewhat bunched, suggesting the overskirt of former days. Such effects are usually a reaction from long skirt coats and redingotes, and perhaps the overskirt will not take a definite shape. Wool batiste will be much used for Fall and Winter shirt waists. These, developed in white, are very dainty. Albatross anti mohair are also popular. Voile, Henrietta, French flannel and light-weight plaid materials are also ready for duty. This promises to be a season re splendent with velvet and Irish point lace. Many black silk and satin waists shown by Lord and Tay lor are trimmed with Irish point and are considered highly exclusive and fit for ihe veriest gentlewomen's wear. In fact, the smart dresser and conservative one alike under stand Ihe value, adaptability and actual witchery of a one black gown modisbly made. The above men tioned firm display some develop ments in this line which appeal to them from every standpoint. Black and white in combination will have a great run, this year; and soft gray crowds every line of color or the absence of color. Trimming* are plentifully em ployed upon dressy gowns for ela borate occasions, both skirt and bodice being liberally treated. The gold-braid belling are receiving great attention; as arc plaid silk braids revealing the development of the design in gold thread and an intermixture of one or more vivid colors The great vogue of the princesse gown intensifies the prestige of tbg R. fk*0. corset, whose innings ap pear to be practically limitless. This corset shapes so gracefully to the figure, and is of itself so firm of modelling anti texture as to give its wearer a delightful sense of looking her best, anti being able to depend upon the continuance of her charm ing, graceful appearance. Among especially smart colors is a dead.leaf shade of brown. An alluring shade of pink is China rose. Among fashionable reds may be found subergine, old rose and gooseberry. An old rose gown I saw recently was trimmed w ith lace, and had cream colored vest and a little, saucy-looking bows of Alice blue. One is nerved up to most anything, these days, and can stand the shock of bizarre associations of color; and yet, many combinations which sound simply awful when told about, are in reality most love ly, the secret lying in selecting the right hues to put together. And oh, what a fine, nice taste is requir ed for this f lam fain to confess that those who possess it are in the minority; else would we note fewer walking crazy quilts in our midst. Ribbon embroidery will appear on evening costumes, and tinsel holds its own. The preference of Queen Alexandra for gold and sil ver trimmings makes for their popu larity, on both sides of the Atlantic. Nothing makes a prettier gown than veiling for between seasons or house wear. In a temperate climate it may be worn even in Winter; though it is too light for chill north ern, far eastern or western latitudes. In the accompanying illustration is shown a model peculiarly well adapted to the material, ornament ed with shirrings and plaits. This is one 'me ot May Manton’s happi est inspirations.

All passenger trains of the Haiti more & Ohio Railroad to and from New York City now have direct ferry connection with 23rd Street Terminal in addition to Liberty Street; the South Ferry Terminal having been discontinued. Twenty third Street is the most popular terminal of the great metro polis because of its convenience to the hotel, theatre and shopping dis trict. In the recent remodeling of the terminal building a glass roofed canopy was constructed fifty feet wide, under which the crosstown cars of 14th, 23rd, 28th and 29th Street lines pass so that passengers are protected from the weather leaving the ferry house, and also avoid the annoyance of street traffic. All baggage destined to New York City will b delivered to 23rd Street unless distinctly marked “Liberty Street” or otherwise. A complete electric cab service has also been established for the transportation of passengers and at very reasonable rates. The importance of 23rd Street is most graphically brought to atten tion in the August number of the “Hook of the Royal Hlue” publish ed by the Passenger Department of the Haltimorc Ac Ohio, under the title “Into the Heart of Gotham."
