Western Newspaper I'mon Near* Service ,i Charleston. W. Va.—One of the most important disturbances of this section made by the high water and the washing away of bridges is the stagnation of the western ship ments of coal. Should it take some thing like thirty days to open tip the lines, there will have been an enor mous loss sustained by the roal com panies and their men In this section, as well as the trainmen. The lake shipments open up about this time of the year, and the conditions of the roads are such now that thia field can do little in that trade. There are also a large number of cars "yon" side of the flood, and these empties will have to stay there until they ean come over. It is expected that a way to Cincinnati can he found within a few days, but this will not help the shippers In their lake trade. It will, however, enable the merchants and others who patronise the Queen City wholesalers and supply bouses to get their goods through. A solid trainload of bridge timber has been ordered from Florida by the Norfolk & Western, and it Is under stood that it is now on its way to the flood district. The Norfolk A Western is hauling all material to that section, and numerous workmen of all trades are already at work. Opens Rich Mineral Field. April 15, according to original pinna, will mark the opening of the Cedar Bluff cut-off railroad. What will be the longest siding on ihe Clinch Val ley railroad iR now being excavated for at Tip Top, a projection several hundred feet In length. The new ex tension has already been strung with telegraph and telephone wires, com plete for service, and only a few minor details preclude the active operation of the line. A number of \ ery pro ductive coal operations will be de veloped on this road, materially aug menting the Norfolk & Western traffic. Graham and Cedar Bluff will be the ex tension’s terminals, which will he an Impetus to the growth of these places. The greatest traffic over this road will be for the western points via laeger and Berwind to the Norton outlet. The Cedar Bluff line is anticipated by the Nor^ylk & Western to have one of the most opulent fields for mineral devel opment among the several Interests recently acquired by this company. Unfair Prices Dealt With. News from the flood zone is to the effect that the government has ar rested a large number of men who have been charging exorbitant prices for ferriage. In some instances It is reported that families marooned on the roofs of their houses were left theTe at the mercy of fhe flood be ranse they could not pay enormous sums to the boatmen to take them , off. When this condition became known the government officials began arresting them, and a number are now In jafl. It is reported from Ports mouth that, -one man who refused to take off a family unless they gave him twenty-tlve dollars apiece, waR knock- j ed ont. of a boat and floated down, the rescuers taking the boat and ruing It to reaeue people. Baseball Tans Pleased. Fans Of Charleston are delighted with the admission of Lexington and Maysville, two Kentucky cities, to the Ohio &tate league. The popular sug gestion that the name of the league ought to be changed so as to give recognition to West Virginia cities, be- | comes more than -ever pertinent. The name "Ohio State league,” and it m an honored one, now becomes a Mis nomer. The league is no longer con fined to Ohio cities-- half of the mem bers are from West Virginia and Ken- , tucky—and although the Ohioans nat urally cling to the original title as a matter of aeutimrnf. West Virginia* Quits. George M. Rowers, of Martinshnrg, W Va., TTnited States commissioner of fisheries, who for sixteen years has held this office, tendered his resigna tion to President Wilson, to take effect April 10. The resignation was accept ed and Hugh M. Srn'ith, of the IWstrlct of Columbia, who has been chief dep uty in the office of Mr Rower" will be appoint**! to fill the vacancy. — Friends of Senator Elkins Honored. Gov. If, R. Hatfield ha® appointed Cel. Colin P. Livingston *?nd Col. n<*o. F. Snyder t* be colonel* <,o his staff. During past years each of these <>oV oneln was private se. retary to Sena tor Elkins and one of the list arts of Senator Kikins was to endorse Col. Snyder for clerk of the rommerce court, a position which he still occu pies. Col. Livingston is the managing head of thft Amerirai, National bank, which was founded by .Senator Kikins J and In which Senator Davis Elkins is a stockholder. / r Recommends Divertificatlc The first complete pres :rop conditions in the Sou compiled by Dr. John Lee pert in charge of agricult States Bureau of the Cen mentation at the Conferring of ness Men, to be held at Richmond. April IK and IS. According to Dt. _ bert I*. Bourlaud, executive secret* i»f the conference, discussion of th South’s agricultural status Is to have :i prominent place In the proceedings\ because the prosperity of business.' ('specially, is bound up with the pros perity of agriculture In the South, where the great majority of the popu lation are farmers. Dr. Coulter's presentation takes the form of statistical tables, showing the number of farmers interested in the various Southern crops, along with the extent to which they are interested. The tables also show the total amount and value of each crop produced in each Southern state, and the same fig ures will be given for the country as a whole. With these tables as a basis, tho business men attending the conference will b*» able to make an estimate of the greater yields which the nverage Southern farmer might produce with little or uo extra coat. In this way, commercial bodies can determine spe cifically what to undertake for the de velopment of the agricultural re sources around their respective cities. That it is utmost ruinously had busi ness for the Southern farmer to plant corn and cotton so largely us he does at present is one of the main facts so far developed by Dr. Coulter’s study. One of the ways in which he proves this contention is by an analysis of the buy and forage crops. Throughout the entire United States the value of these crops now amounts to more than $824,. 000,000, while in the fifteen Southern states it is less than $9,000,000. As s result, the Southern fnrmers have to buy nearly $60,000,000 worth of feed a year, or almost seven times as much as they raise. If the agriculturists of the South raised enough feed on their farms to take care of their own stock, I>r. Coul ter figures that they would save $30. 000,000 a year, thus increasing their purchasing power to a like extent with out the expenditure of a single addi tional penny in the operation. Investigation Is Halted. Halted at Iras? temporarily by the declination of important witnesses to trivet hem information concerning the charges of bribery against seven ineni b« r* of the West Virginis legislature now under indictment In connection with the alleged sale of their votes on the United States senatorship at the recent legislative election, the legisla tive bribery investigating committee haa adjourned, subject to the call of Chairman Oliver 8. Marshall. Several witnesses who were cog nisant of the trap laid by detectives at the recent session of the legislature refused to testify before the commit tee over the protest of Prosecuting At torney Thomas C. Townsend, from whom they had secured their informa tion . These w 1 laenwes were material to the legislative investigation, and while awaiting the outcome of a test case in the wnpreme court of appeals, which will determine whether or not the leg islative committee can compel the te* timony of witnesses under penalty of imprisonment for contempt, the com mittee adjourned.

Curl Hilty’s delightful book on •'Happiness.'* and especially to Its glorification of work. One of Professor Hilly’s strong points is that no ono has a real right to the rest of Suuday unless he has toiled during the preceding six days. Tho keeping of the Sabbath among the ancient Jews was counted a car dinal virtue. It extended eveu to their plants, which could uot be watered or plucked on that day. Of course, the ceremonies of the priests, ns of those of all sects lu our own day. were uot accounted as labor. We can only fully rvulice the inten sity of the old Jewish feeling for (he day when we consider the fact that a deliberate breach of the Sabbath was punishable by death. That the national feeling on this subject approached fanaticism is seen by the record that a Jewish steersman, during a terrible storm, left the helm untended, because the hour hud struct, for the beginning of the Sabbath, it is well uttested by passage, from the books of the Maccabees, from Jose phus and from Plutarch, thut the Jew ish armies refused to bear armi on the Sabbath, even suffering their enemies to cut them down rather than to dese crate tho day. Sabbath Rigors Mitigated. "Prudent commanders, however," •ays Doctor Strong. “Boeing the great advantage thus given the enemy, ob served the Sabbath rest only so tur as to abstain oil that day from offensive operations." The Pharisees, hlssenes and Samar ttans w’ere. In the time of Chris!. the chief sticklers for the old rigor. They split the very smallest of hairs in their seal. Thus It was permitted among them to give medicine to save life; but to give it merely to make the •tek more comfortable was forbidden. Recent discoveries, us related b> Delltzsch and others. Indicate that a seventh day of rest was prescribed among many, perhaps most, of the an cient nations, and markedly among the Hittltes and Babylonians. It seems to have been early felt that the repose of the night did not suffice for the re freshment of tho humun system, and that in addition a whole day of rust was needed us often us once in each week. The Jew keeps the Snbhath us a fes tival. After a brief, ceremonious reli gious service of some kind during the morning, feasting and pleasure are the order of the day. The Jews consider that Isa. 18:13, 14 enjoins this in say ing, "If thou turn away thy foot from doing thy pleasure on my holy day, and call the Sabhutb a delight, the holy of the lxtrd, honorable, then shall thou delight thyself in the lxtrd, and 1 will cuubo thee to ride upon the high places of the earth." Make Sabbath Day of Feasting. Buxdorf, one of tho great authori ties, hb>h: "Bo convinced are the Jews that ono way of honoring the Sabbath is by feasting that they sometimes fast the preceding day to enable them to eat the more at the Sabbath meals.” Our modern evangelical methods are very different. We consider this day as sacred to the higher spiritual needs of mankind. We deplore any*, thing which tends to make it carnal or sensual. As for the special deeds to be done or left undone on the Hulibuth, men are more and more leaving them to the individual conscience; but let each of <im remember that, according to the way the great rest day is spent, so Will -hartwter degenerate or irn prove. Let us keep the Subbuf, day holy.— Ohristian Herald. f „ Sacred Duties of Home.
