For Congress, Fifth District, JAMES A. nroiiEs, of t’alwdl county. REPUBLICAN STATE TICKET. For Governor, WILLIAM M O. DAWSON, of Kanawha county. For Auditor, ARNOLD C. SC'IIERR, of Mineral Couuty. For Treasurer, NEWTON (HiDIN, of Pleasants countv. For Attorney General, CLARK W. MAY, of I.incolu county. For Superintendent of Free Schools, THOMAS C. MILLER, of Mai ion county. For Secretary of State, CHARLES W. SWISHER, of Marion county. For Supreme Judges, FRANK COX, of Monongalia county. JOSEPH M. SANDERS, of Mercer county. Monday, September 5th, has been named an “Labor Day’’ by Governor White. Uncle Henry CL Davis has found it out that he is the Demo cratic uomiuse for Vice Presi dent. -- Ik the Republican party should lose West Virginia this fall the politic al tricksters and would-be bosses of our own party will have the responsibility to shoulder. Mosquitoes have been so nu merous aud hungry in southwest ern Texas this season that railroad •ection men were compelled to <juit their worn, although they wore gloves and veils. And they say this is democracy’s yeur. Gaines and Edwards were both nominated at Hinton last Satur day to represent the Third Wept Virginia District in the Congress of the L nited States, by the Re publicans. A Democrat will prob ably be elected in that District. With regard to the report that Hon. W. A. Pardons, of Jackson county, Republican candidate for circuit judge, would vote the Demo cratic ticket, the Kavetiswood News •tates that it is authorized to denv the statement in the most emphatic terms, and adds: “The report was undoubtedly started with malicious intent to injure his ohances of elec tion and it will re act on the party responsible for it.” Hon. Joseph S. Miller’s name ha« been mentioned as the Demo cratic nominee for Congress in this District. Our Democratic friends seem to he courting this county now days and allow Wayne almost any. thing for whish her people may ask. \N e do n»>t believe tbev could name j a stro'ger oandidale for Conores® than Mr Miller and if a Democrat should be elected in this District, (although we believe Congressman Hughes mill succeed himself), we I would like to si e Hon. Joseph S he the man. JrnoK F. A. Gi*tiirie died at his home at Pt Pleasant on the 16th, inst., aged '>4 years. Although hi® health had been failing for the past » wo years the new® of hi® death will he received hy his many friends throuhout the State with surprise and sorrow. Only a week prior to his demi®« he visited hi* son—Dr. V. L. Guthrie— SuperimUndent of, the W. Ya. Asylum, at Hunting-' Ion. I >r twenty-four years the deceased ma« Judge of the Seventh •Judicial Ciicuit, composed by the conntie® of Kanawha, Putnam and Mason, and was a ju®t and impartial judjfo and a popular uiao. I racy and moonshine whisky are the only questions that are ever dis cussed iu that wild country.” We want it understood that yv« are not lighting the battles for the Democratic candidates, but when the fair name of the county of oui adoption is assailed, by a Kepuhli can or a Democrat, we shall not fail to defend it. The above is unfair, unjust and untruthful. It is unfair and unjust because it never would have appear ed if the Republ ican party had a candidate from this couuty on the j Stale ticket. It is untruthful, and if the writer thereof had taken oc casion to investigate the citizenship of this county he never would have written what lie did—if he dtsired to he on the side of justice and i right. The editor of this paper was horn in Marion county and is proud of it, yet he is sure that that county con tains as many backwoods people as does Wayne. 1 lie Ohio Valley, a portion of which comprises a part of W ayne county, is the “garden spot” of the world. Ileie civilization and education have placed our people in the trout raukj of American citizen ship; here are fine colleges and hand some churches; here are happy homes and contented people—people who do not believe because one should happen to live in an interior county, like .Marion, he is a heathen or a backwoodsman. Wayne coun ty has no moonshine whisky, but there are a few Democrats left; yet we have almost as many Republi cans and they w ill not take kindly to the sentiment expressed in the article to which reference is made above. Dr. Daniels Selected to Succeed fair. The Republican Congressional Committee for this District met at j the Florentine Hotel, Huntington, last Saturday eveuing and selected Dr. G. P. Daniel, of Marshes, Ral- t eigh county, as residential Elec tor, to succeed John S. Farr, who resigned Dr- Daniels is not generally known throughout t h e District, but we presume he’s a good Re publican and will carry the full party vote. - -- Thf. Democrats of Cabell coun ty seem to be as badly split as the Republicans of that county. Last Saturday evening ward conven tions were held to select delegates to a county convention to nomi nate a county ticket and turbulent and strenuous times were witness ed at all the gatherings. Split conventions and two sets of dele gates were selected to the county convention by the several ward conventions. Cabell politicians are certainly a strenuous set in in b"th political parties.
