LARGEST CONVENTION IN HISTORY OF COUNTY Today the Democrats are hold ing a convention at Middlebourne to nominate county officers. It is estimated by conservative men that there are fully fif^eri hun dred voters attending the conven tion, which is by far the largest Democratic convention that was ever held in this county, and among this immense crowd are scores of Republicans who will not vote for the Red Ticket candidates this year. The Sistersville band is furnishing the music. The town is crowded with people that it's almost impossible to get any thing to eat either for man or beast. ? The convention was called to order at 10 o'clock this morning, and E. 0. Bowers of this city, was made temporary chairman and J. L. Howard of Centreville, secre tary. After Bowers had made a speech which made Secretary Root's famous Chicago speech look like thirty cents, the various committees were appointed and the convention adjourned to meet on the fair grounds at 1 o'clock this afternoon, as not a third of the people could get into the court house. It's the banner convention of Tyler county. OIL MAN HAS DISAPPEARED Samuel Shannon, an oil man from Klondyke, W. Va., a well known oil field worker, arrived in "Wheeling about April 12 on hi3 way to one of the local hospitals for treatment, and has disap peared as though the earth had opened and swallowed him up. This morning a sister of the missing man arrived in the city and has been making diligent in quiry for her brother. She visited all the hotels and found where he had stayed over night, bat could find no trace of him since then. All of the hospitals of the city have been communicated with, and unless he is in some private sanitarium he is not in the city. He had a large amount of money when he left home, and after his arrival here he got some checks cashed. The search for him has been go ing on for some time, his relatives becoming uneasy on account of not hearing from him. They are now at a loss to account for his where?bo\|ts. ? Wheeling Tele graph.
