The Ceredo Advance.
T. T. McDOUGU, BD1TOK AND PROPKIKTOR. Wedn»wUy, .Taimarv 20. 1004 Jl'lKiK Maiiikws, ot Cabell coun ty, is after the slot machines again. Thk next National Demooialic convention will he held in St. Louis, July tith. I iik Methodist Episcopal Times has a new head and is otherwise much improved in uppvarance. Hon. J. L. Cai.dwkm, as United Slates Senator is what the people of Southern West Virginia—regardless of party—desire. Senator Hanna was re-elected V'. S. Senator by the Ohio Legisla ture by a tremendously large majori ty. M arcus deserves it. Thk Stale Board of Pardons is now eomposed of Hon. W. E. While, of Parkersburg, and Hon. Andrew Edmiston, of Weston. Thk merging of the Intelligencer and News of Wheeling, is uot looked ed upon with great lavor by the lie publicans of the State. The Intelli gencer has long been consid ired the leading Republicans organ of the State, but will it continue to be so? John B. Gordon, Lieutenant Geueral in the Coofedeiate army, died at Miami*, Fla., on the Dth. He was buried with military honors at Kirkwood, Georgia. lie has been Governor and United Slates Senator. Ex-Governor Charles Fos ter, of Ohio, died the same day. Ex-Governor G. W. Atkinson, U. S. District Attorney, and his assistant, Elliott Northcott, have been exonerated of the charge brought agaiust them bv one Wilder. No one thought there was anything in the charges and the dismissal of the case by the de, artment of justice was expected. In a review of the Ohio campaign the Chicago 1 ribu lie's \\ ashington correspondent remarks: “Senator Hanna’s personal popularity was so great, and the meetings he addressed ho pronouncedly Republican, that he would have been applauded if he had advocated a scheme for the propagation and spread of typhoid lever.” Is this a eulogy of the Re publican party or of Hanna, or of both 'i - -*>•••> -— 1 me President and his Cabinet have decided that Department clerks must hereafter work seven hours each day, as the law r» <|iures, instead of six and a half, as hitherto. The clerks are in an insurrection about it but they gel on average twelve hundred d liars a year, have one or two months vacation with pay, and the Saturday afternoons in summer. I hey will have a hard time eliciting sympathy for themselves in the breasts of people who work ten to fifteen hours a day lor less tnan half the mo ley. There is not the least danger of a strike. 1 iik President sent a long message to Congress on Jan. 4., justifying his action in regard to Panama, giving that body all the facts and incidents which led him to recog nize the new republic. The mes sage was closely followed on both sides of the Senate, and was re. garded by the Republicans as a very strong document. The President claimed that he ha<l acted within a very reasonable time; that Congress had marked out the route of the canal from Panama to Colon and that as he had secur« d that route it was needless to consider Nicaragua. He averred that Colombia has the power to ratify the Hay Herron treaty which was more than generous to Colombia; and that it notori ous for a hu g time, as shown by extracts from the public pres**, that a revolution wa« pending in Panama j.rov ltd 1 he tr« aty failed. In . iew « f I hi - -late of affairs he ordered V\ ,r •di’pfc to the isthmus to protect ■Aliierif an < •: i/.eii* and property, iti'j .iid « 11 nn Commander Huh bald were set forth showing the condition exi-ting and the a lion he took to prexenj hostilities on the i part of t oloiuhia. I h' esident j had no doubt the lr> olild be ratified and that ( ongress would tand by the new Republic. Dawson Refuses to Withdraw. | A conference of many of the lead ing Republicans of the State was held in Washington Monday night and in the interest oi harmony lion. ! J. L ('aidwell offered to withdraw from the Senatorial race aud accept the nomination for Governor, (as suggested by Mr. Dawson at a for mer conference), hut it seems that Mr. Dawson has changed his mind, as we received the following mes sage from Washington, just as we were preparing to go to press: (S|»ecial to the Cer«*d<> Advanck.) Washington, D. C.,.!an. 19, 1904. “Dawson refused to compromise. Conference availed nothinu.” y. s. c. GRAHAM IS’ALL RIGHT. That man the Orsdo Avance is running for CougresH tn the Fifth District, whose name is John T. Graham, is evidently all right, even if we have uot been murmur ing bis name as on the list of our acquainteuances, for the Advance. which we have never found much out of the way, says ho, aud what it speaks of in such a way, as it does, goes. After the explanation by the Advance, Mr. Graham just has to go to Congress aud that is all there is of it.—Parkersburg State Journal. But Mr. Graham declines to go to Congress aud the Advance is uot in favor of driving oue to such a place. He prefers to attend to hia law practice, but maybe be will change his mind and couseut to go two years hence. This session of Congress will wit ness another strenuous effort of the territories to get their promised statehood. The House committee evinces a willingness to l*»t in Ari zona and New Mexico as one state, and Oklahoma and Indian Territory as another. This compulsory mar riage they do not ipiite like; in fact the two first named have given notice that they revolt against it and will repudiate it if it is offered them. There are at least two men in each territory, who think they would measure up to the full stature of senators and they are disinclined u take turns It is believed that if these territories are admitted as states this year they would all vote the Republican ticket. In fact, the I'einocractic party which carried [most of the territories in 1890, seems to have entirely lost its grip upon the West. In his reception speech recently in New York William J. ttiyan said: “This trip has relieved me of one great anxiety I had in 1890. I .vas afraid at that time that if I should be defeated there might not be enough competent men to represent the government in all the posts of responsibility.” And yet they say that the favorite son of Nebraska does not drink. Then he must have been in the deadly dutches of a l»e lated sea-sickness. W. F. II i ik, of Huntington, brother of II. C. Hite, C. »fc (). agent in this city, has announced himself a candidate for nomination on the Republican ticket tor Con gres from the Fifth West Virginia Hi-tnot, now represented by Hon. •lames A.

A regular meeting of the Common Council of Cereda was held in the council room on Monday night, Jan. 4th, 1904 Present: Mayor Sturgill, Recorder Wright and Councitmeu Stewart, Ramsdell, Thomson and Mays Minutes of previous meeting were read and approved.

Judge Mason at Clarksburg ex plained that the general impression prevailing in this Stale that the Su preme Court has decided there is no law to prohibit the operation of slot machines is erroneous, and in structed the jury to investigate all violations under the gambling law. Since reports were circulated that the law could not reach slot machines all the saloons in Clarksburg and many other cities in the State have been opemy operating them. ♦ • Massachusetts Democrats hate placed Richard Olney squarely in the Presidential nomination.
