Tb« Ed ipse—Briefs
The confirmation by the Senkte of the
President's recommendation of Hon. Joseph
S. Miller to be Commissioner of Internal
Revenue, wasjreceived with the liveliest sat
isfaction by nil classes of our citizens, yes
terday. Go where you would, among Dem
ocrats nnd Republicans alike, one h sard
nothing but rejoicing over the event, and
every one spoken to on the subject had a
•ror J of commendation both for the E.tecu
live and tho ex-Auditor. And this feeling
of tatii faction aro?e from no o'her motive
than one of friendship and admiration for
bim who had been thus called to fill a high !
and responsible position ander the general ,
government. Mr Miller, although a young !
man, is eminently qualified for the office be
stowed upon him; his public experience hü«
been varied, his public duties always credit
ably («rformed, and he will, without doabt,
administer the affairs given in his charge
with honor to himself and to hio State.
The office ot CommLnione; of Internal
Revenue is one of the beat within the giftof
a President, the paironage to be dispensed
being very large Chief among the offices,
tobe filled by the Commissioner are twenty
revenue agents a', a salary of $2,500 and
expenses each. These agents comprise the
personal staff of the Commissioner, and are
charged with the supervision of the entire I
revenue collections of the country. Next in J
importance comes the large force of clerka,
some two hundred in number, employed in
the Revenue Bureau. The*e clerkships run
from #1,200 up. In addition to these, the
Commissioner recommends to the Secretary
of the Treasury for appo'ntment all tbe
storekeepers and guagers in the United
States, many hundred in number, which po
sitions pay about #1,200 per annum each
It «ill thus be seen that the office which
bas fallen to Mr. Miller is one of great im
portant—the best, in fact, ever held by a
West Virginian—and the friends of the
appointee refer to the fact with the liveliest
ratisiaction. Mr. Miiier, although but
thirty seven years ot age, has achieved a
large measure of success in public life.
Educated at the Ashland, Ky., law school,
his finit position in public life was to till the
clerkship of the Circuit Court in Cabell
county, in lHtj'i, which office he retained
until 1873. In the fall of 1872 he wa
further elected clerk of the County Court
and succeeded to the duties the fo'lowin?
year. That office h< continued to hold until
1875. al.-o being a councilman for the town
of Barboursville, from 1873 to 1S74. In
1*72 he »as elected clerk of the State Sen
ate, serving down to 187C, when ha wa?
nominated for and elected State Auditor,
being reelected in 1HH0 for the term which
so lately ex fired. #

__An o!d time audience, in numbers, aaci
one which bad evidently determined before

When Mr. Murphy came up the aislo h^
was gr*eted with a hearty round of ap
platse, for which, on reaching the pla'fortn
he returned thanks lie said it waî the
tirst deironstatiou of the kind he had met
with during the entire progress of the meet
ines, and warned the audieace to be care
fol, or they might not get rid of him. The
choir and audience united in singing
the hymn "All hail the power of Jesus
came, after which Mr. Murphy read a se
lection from the Scriptum, -commenting
upon it as he went along. Praver was ot

in the morning, along about five o'clock,
you would, perchance, see some of thos*
men loitering along the sidewalks, and

The editor ot the Intelligencer is the
proud possessor of what Mr. Murphy would
call a convenient memory. For many !
spoons, under the administration ot the lato- t
ly retiring Republican Chief of-Police, gam- |
bling in almoot all its various forms Sou:- 1
ished in Wheeling as it never flourished be
fore; every citizen, from the tough man
about-towu to the preacher in his pulpit, and
from the Chief of Police to the newsboy, in- j
eluding the editor afoseaaid—yea, eren the '
very dogs and cats and street car horses— |
was aware of and commented wonderingly
upon the activity of thegamoling fraternity !
and the boldness and assurance which the ;
knights of the green cloth displayed, bat
never an intimation came from our Repub- !
lican contemporary that the Republican :
Chief-of Police was not doing his whole
duty. As this Republican administration I
neared its end there seemed to be a quiet !
determination on the part of the gamsters to j
"work the thing" for all it was worth, and
with the advent of cold weather a vertiable i
gambling boom seemed to have struck the !
town. The demand for cards and checks 1
was unprecedented. Stud poker became •
the rage, and gambling room alter gambling !
room was opened—«ome ot them sparsely
and poorly furnished, and others arrayed iu
gorgeous magnificence. But ' nobody said
nuthin'," and the boys labored in sveet
Bv anl-bythe Republican Chief ofPolice
stepped out* and his Democratic successor
stepped in. The new administration at
once made its mark as a most efficient one,
the city having been better policed than
ever before, and more arrests made for ser
ious offenses in the first six weeks than in
sny corresponding period in the previous
four years. Suddenly, however, ths editor
ot the Intelligencer remembers that gamb
ling exists in the city, and without stopping
to think either of under what circumstances
it had its growth, or that the new police re
gime should have a fair chance, he proceeds
to haul Captain Smith over the coals for <
deerliction of duty. We, with p'easure in
troduce that gentleman, who will speak for
himself in reply to the charges preferred
against him:
WitEELtNo, March 16, 1883.
r.'ditor oj Register:
Since tie election of a Democrat Ser
geant the editor of the Intelligencer has
been seized with a sudden attack of virtue.
He has become censorious and now dis
covers mare's cents where formerly every
thing bore the color of the rose and was
entirely and altogether heavenly. The
virtues and vices of the city are to day just
what thcy were under Capt. Bennett's ad
ministration and during that time the editor
had naught but words of praise and eulogy
tor the Captain and his police force The
editor not onij endorsed the Captain
through his editorials, but voted for and
urged the election of a Chief who would be
yond doubt have retained a large portion
of Captain Bennett'h force.
The undersigned is new to the office and
has hardly as ytt had an opportunity to fully
a certain whether four years of Republican
rule has ltd to a frightful state of aQ'airs or
not. So far aa any comment made by Mr
liart on the condition in which Captaiu
Bennett left the morality and de'.-ency of the
city would indicate, that state of morality
and decency must have met with Mr. Hart's
concurrence and endorsement
If not. why did not Mr. H. apeak out and
read the riot act to my worthy predecessor?
I can vouch for it, that if morals have not
been improved in my six or seven week?
tenure of office, they are certainly no worie
thiiu th«»y were upon my entry into office
If they are no worse to-day than upon my
entry into office, why should Mr. Hart single
me out fora'tack when he thought the same
matters under Republican rule wete all
right? I desire to enforce all of the city
ordinances so far as the matter of enforce
ment falls wi hin my province, but it is uot
my duty until evidence of the viola
tion of a law is before me to enact the
role of either u prosecutor or percecutor. I
Mr. Hart has any information that gatnb
ling heils are in fall blüst and wiil come be
lore Clerk I'arrah I make affidavit to thf
same, giving the name« and location of »ht
uarties, I think that Mr. 1'arrah will give
him a warrant, and I know that the Ser
kteant will do his duty. I have no doubt
that Mr. Parrah will issue a warrant at the
instance of .any responsible or reliable per
son who will make the proper affidavit.
It is my desire to enlorce the law and
do what I can to protect the morals of the
ctty, but at the same time no one cau ex
pect perfection from a new sergeant who
has had hardly sufficient time to familiarize
nimself with all the current wickedness. In
the meantime I hope that so good a conserv
ator and guardian of the public morale a«
Mr Hart will not attack me wantonly and
maliciously through the public prints, but
will be so kind as to point out those haunt»
of wickedness which may escape
my knowledge through the proper
channels—that ip, affidavits. lie
will always find my office open and an
officer rtady for duty. I also hope that the
' police badges" will rot cost him any un
easiness, and tha' h* will njt harrow up his
slumbers with fevered dreams or undue rest
lespntss. Mr. Hart is a truly good man,
and we all know, a pious editor. Will he
nor grant me a little claiifj. aud not be so
quick to censure, atil so ready to criticise?
Respectfully, etc.,

No Election.
Yesterday was the day set apart by th^
Board of County Commissioners for the
election of s Superintendent of the County
Infirmary, and the contest turned out to be
one of the most exciting in the political his
tory of the county. The Board was called
to order by President Woods at eieren
o'clock,ail the members being present excep
CcmmisMoner Prince. When the object of
the meeting had been stated, the clerk read
a telegram from the absente«, who was down
the river with his boat, saying that he could
not possibly reach the city before noon, and
requesting a postponement of the election
until 2 o'clock.
To this the Board agreed, it being desira
ble to bave every member present, and the
Board accordingly took a recess until that
On reassembling the list of candidates
was read by tbe clerh as follows: James
Maloney, William Gaston, J. H. Emblen
John S. Creighton. F. Grübler, James
Creighton. W. B. Luken?, Charles Exley,
Thomas Mevera, James Robrecht, M. Smith,
D. W. Stephens, Michael Schwin, George
Ilervey and A. S. Radford.
There was a large crowd in the lobby, and
before proceeding to a ballot, on motioa of
Mr. Boring, the room was cleared of all bat
members and reporters
The roll was then called on the first bal
lot, as follows: Borinç, for Maloney; Del
bnigge, for Grübler; Maxwell, for Gaston;
Nichols, for Emblen; Peterson, for Grüb
ler; Picket, for Maloney; Prince, for James
Creighton; Stein, for Meyers; Stoker, for
Meyers, and Mr. President, for Emblen.
I ben the balloting; began in earnest. On
the fourth ballot Mr. Stein placed Barney
Shanley in nomination, and things went
along swimmingly until the twenty-fourth
roll call had been announced, » hen a recess
of fifteen minutes was taken. On the twen
ty-fiflh and twenty-sixth ballots but eizht
votes were cast, two of the members being
temporarily absent
On the twenty-eighth ballot Mr. Radford
received ihe six votes necessary to elect, but 1
bef«re the result was announced Mr. Bering
changed hia vote, and one candidate's hopes
were temporarily blasted. Ballot aftëï bal
lot succeeded until the result of the sixty
sixth had been announced, when Presideut
Woods made another nomination in the
person of Mr. W. J. Brown, of Elm Grove, j
*ho, on the next ballot, received three

the meet*ding ballot he would turn op with ;

Another Ohio Man OeU Him»elf into
Trouble, bnt Not Politic*!.
A notice was received at police headquar
ters a day or so ago to be on the lookout for
a man, describing him, who stole a horse J
and buggy from Zanesville, Ohio, on Friday ;
lut. fcarlv vest» rday merging a man came i
to town and drove op to a saloon on Market i
street to take a drink. It happened that '
the officer on this beat was the only one an- '
informed aboat the affair, and he talked to
him lor seme time, when the man got in
the buggy and drove toward (he North
End Shortly afterwards the officer was in
formed of the matter, and he immediately
wtnt in teareh of the man, whom he sus
pected of being the thief. He was not
found until about 6 o'clock yesterday
morning, when Officer Watson discovered
him in the toll house and arrested him The
horse and buggy were found in the North
End under an old shed where it had been
driven by the man. À warrant <was sworn
out for bis arrest before Justice Phillips,
who sent bim to jail for ten days to give an
officer from Ohio time to get a requisition
from the Governor of that State. The man
is well known, he being sentenced some
lime ago at Parkereburg for stealing chick
ens liom residents along the Ohio river.
His name is Doc Campbell, and on Friday
last he hired the horse and boggy from 11
L. Grubb, a liveryman, of Ztnesville, Ohio, j
whose son, in company with two officers,
tame-down and identified the property. The
officers will return to morrow and take their
man home with them.

Last evening Belmont lx>dge No. 101 K. of

Haltimore Lodge No. 6 and assisted them
in the ceremonies ot initiating Beveral new
members, third degree. At the conclusion
of the ceremonies the two lodges repaired to
the Arlington restaurant, where an elegant
and appetizing banquet was spread for their
edification. All sei to with a hearty good
will and made the good things disappear
right and left. After all had done justice to
the eatables and drinkables, cigars were
I ghted and l>r. John E. Smith, who, by the
way, is one of the original founders of the
orderof Knigblsof Pjthias, was called upon,
and made a very pretty and eloquent little
ppeech illustrative of the benefits of the
order. Mr. Chris. Siebke followed in a short
address, and he was succeeded by Messrs
üapgs and Martin of Belmont Lodge. The
congenial assemblage then passed the bal
ant e of lie evenine in varions ways, enjoy
able to the male heart. The banquet
was given complimentary to Belmont
Lodge, nnd they appreciated it very highly
Ihe Order is fJoun«hing all over the coun

whose name slipped our memory, made a
very pleasant little address, also.
A MUernble failure in This Vicinity.
'1 he partial eclipse of the sun, extensively
edvenistd by almanac makers as sure to
come iff yesterday, was a very snide affair,
and if pcor Artemus Ward had undertook to
-xlibit it in his open top tent the audience
■»ould have arisen unanimously and dé
niai.ded 1 ack their money. The phenome
non v as to have gotten under wav shortly
after twelve o'clock, but we are compelled
to thke tie astronomer s word for it. Tneskj
*as thickly overcast with clouds, when noon
came, and despite a carefu' observation
made by an Intelligencer reporter through a
! eer gla.'s, the face of old Sol could not be
seen. About an hour later, however, a
fleeting glimpse of the son was obtained, its
disc boing then about two fifths obscured.
The eclipse 6nded about three o'clock.
Many people contracted permanent "cricks"
in th«ir necks from persistent endeavors to
atch a sight of the affair through th<
louds, ana a legion of amateur local
»•ttronomers were immensely disgusted a'
the flat failure of their attempts at observa
