STILL SLOGGING THE GOVERNOR.
Editor and Collector A. B. Whits is
still roasting Governor Atkinson in tho
Parkerebwrg State Journal at a lively
rate. In addition to giving His Excell
ency a “scar© head” in Saturday s issue,
Mr. White says editorially:
“The Governor makes a bad matter
worse by his published statement repro- |
ductd from the Wheeling Register to-day,
as to the remarkable letter he wrote par
doning Kimes. The Governor shows his
ignorance of the case by misrepresenting
the facts as to the shooting. The Gov- j
ernor sec-ms to have a'wonderful amount i
of misinformation as to Wood county af
fairs on tap. Even if his Information were
true, it does not warrant a Governor in
advocating murder as a penalty for such
an offense. The Governor's private opin
ion as to intrigues with a married woman
is one thing; his published declaration,
as an official sworn to uphold the laws,
is another matter. The Governor preach
ed the gospel of murder when he said:
“ *Tnis is a remarkable case. The only
regret in the matter is that Kimes did not
kill Hail. He ought to have done it.
He tried to do it. but his pistol missed
tire. He shot the scoundrel four times,
and unfortuhately did not kill him.
Every man who has a soul in his body

killed him. . „

have dore under the same circumstances,
except that he ought to have practiced
with his revolver or double-barreled shot
gun so that when he aimed at the scoun

A villain like Hail is unfit to live in a
“The Governor's defense of the above
official 1-tter Is in even wot^c taste than i
the original letter itself. He advocates
murder—the man with a real or fancied
grievance to be his own judge and execu
tioner. There is no excuse or ground for
any Governor under any circumstances
to write an official letter of the kind our
Governor wrote. It is a crime against the
good name and peace of the State, «a
breeder of disorder and violence and an
open bid for defiance of law and the en
throning of the shot-gun as judge, jury
"No one defends Hall’s action. It can
not be defended. No one blames the Gov
ernor for remitting the fine against Scott
Kimes. That is the Governor's privilege
under the law and the public generally
approve it. But the Governor exceeded
the law and violated his oath of office In
spirit, if not actually, when he preached
the gospel of red-handed shot-gun mur
der as a redress for marital grievances."
The worst things which have been
said about the Governor have appeared
in the State Journal.
PROGRESS OK THE STRIKE.
The strikers appear to be forcing
the fighting In the Fairmont region,
and yesterday's parade of a thousand
men, many of whom marched from
Clarksburg to and through Fairmont,
attests in an abundant manner the
earnestness with which these West
Virginia miners, who joined the strike
with extreme reluctance and only after
weeks of effort on the part at the
labor leaders, are carrying on the con
test for better conditions and better
wages. When men, originally deter
mined not to strike, give up their em
ployment and march thirty miles over
dusty roads and in the full glare of an
August sun. in an attempt to induce
other men to join them—when they
encamp all night on the open ground,
without shelter and without sufficient
food, taking their chances with the
elements and for sustenance—there
must be something back of the move
ment beyond mere enthusiasm or the
efforts of "agitators.” Men do not
do such things for mere sentiment, nor
yet because they ar? asked to.
To-day promises to bring with it a
crisis in the strike movement in
Marion county, and the events of the
next twenty-four hours will be awaited
with deep interest over a large section
of the country.
TO INVOKE Till: LAW,
I Out in Missouri they are seriously
deliberating over *the propriety of in
voking the law against the swarm of
lobbyists who disgraced the last ses
sion of the Missouri Legislature, in
dicting the whole crowd and giving
them the full penalty. The movement
will be endorsed over the length and
breadth of the land. an4 the example
should be followed in every State
where there is a statute bearing on
the subject. The gangs which crowd
the halls of legislation in the States
of the Union are a menace which
j calls for summary aud prompt action,
and West Virginia has had her full
share of the disgrace. People who
were at Charleston last winter do not
need to be told of the scenes which
were enacted there during the whole
of the session. The work and influence
of the lobbyist is wholly bad. and un
less the thing is checked with a firm
hand it will grow to as yet undreamed
of proportions. Make an example of
the lobbyists. It will do the country

The official statement of the exports
and imports of merchandise for the
month of July just passed, and for the
seven months ending with July makes
a very favorable showing. For the
mouth of July the exports of merchan

' seven months, including July, the ex

COl. HANDY’S BAD TREATMENT.
Col. Moses P. Handy, of newspaper
and Columbian Exposition fame, re
cently appointed United States Com
missioner to the Paris Exposition, has
had the rare good luck to have his com
pensation fixed at $3,000 per annum
and traveling expenses, and is allowed
a military attache in the shape of
Lieut. Baker, of the Navy, who, in ad
dition to regular pay and traveling ex
penses, is to be allowed $250 per month
for living expenses. Major Handy is
noted for falling into good things, but
why this discrimination as between him
and his fellow official? Major Handy
will have to defray the cost of his liv
ing expenses out of his salary, while
Lieut. Baker gets salary, expenses, suid
$3,000 extra for rations. Somehow or j
other this does not appear to be fair. If j
Lieut. Baker can eat $3,000 worth of
French grub per annum, surely Maor j
Handy can do as well, and if his appe
tite holds out, the net result will be,
but $2,000 out of his salary. And the
Major’s whiskers are worth that much
per annum, as an American exhibition.
Surely, some mistake has been made
Prince Henri of Orleans and the
Count of Turin fought the first of the
series of duels for which the Prince is
scheduled with Italian officers, yester
day morning, at Paris, and both combat
ants were wounded, the Prince more
seriously than his antagonist As a
result, he will have to lie by for a time,
and General Albertone, Lieutenant
Pini, Lieutenant Boppa and the rest will
have to wait until the physicians and
surgeons have patched uptheir prospec
tive antagonist in some sort of shape.
In the meanwhile their ardor may cool,
when they reflect that the Prince means
business, and that the work cut out
differs materially from that seen in the
average French duel. The cause of
this series of quarrels lies in reflections
made by Prince Henri upon the con
duct of Italian officers in the recent war
in Abyssinia against King Menelik. The
Prince maintains that as a simple trav
eler, he has a right to recount matters
which came under his observation, but
the Italian officers think differently.
The fall in the price of silver is abund
antly accounted for by the demonetiza
tion of the metal in Japan, the thieat
to demonetize it in Mexico, the wide
spread distress and famine in India, and

contingent to force it down. A limita
tion of the use of anything will depre

MINERS’ RESPECT FOR LAW.
The striking miners deserve unre
served commendation for their respect
for the law and for the free
dom from disorder which has marked f
the strike so far. It is very seldom
that so many men can quit work, re
main out for such a long time and con
gregate in large bodies without the
breaking out of violence. There are
always hot-heads, who are ready to [
fight, regardless of the conseqneces to j

such men are in the ranks o( the strik
ing miners, and the fact that they are
restrained by calmer counsel speaks
wel for their leaders and their efficient
This serenity of temper should be
maintained and the mandates of the
courts should be scrupulously observed.
The sympathy of the public is with the
mintrs. The grievances of which they
complain are well understood, and it is
acknowledged that they have a perfect
right to strike for justice and fair treat
ment. The miners will retain this
sympathy so long as they maintained
their peaceful position, and it will help
them immeasurably to win. Without
the moral support of the public they
will lose, and this moral support will
be withdrawn if ill-advised counsel or
the rashness of individuals leads to dis

continue to work so long as the latter

MRS. HOPKINS' BARRICADE.
When the Widow Harding married
Hiram Hopkins she knew she was do
ing a foolish thing. She possessed a
neat, little home, surrounded by fertile
acres, but he had nothing besides a
pension of $18 a quarter and the repu
tation of being the1 laziest man in the
But the widow was lonely and Hiram
had “taking” ways with women folk i
and she yielded to his solicitations.
She hoped that matrimony might cure
him of his idleness, but after the first
few weeks he settled down into his cld
habits, and the little place, instead of
improving, as Mrs. Hopkins hoped,soon
began to run down. For having taken
unto herself a husband, she did not feel
able to hire a man to do the work, and
as Hiram would not do it, at the end of
their second year of life together, the
once neat and pretty little farm looked
One warm spring morning, moved
by some particularly sharp remarks
made by his wife, Mr. Hopkins took
his hoe ana proceeded to weed the gar
den, which was overrun wffTi weeds.
He soon lay down to rest, however, and
feel asleep a few moments before his
better half, touched by his seeming in
dustry, brought him a tempting lunch
to encourage him. When she saw him
sleeping she recklessly tossed the lunch
into the pig pen and returned to the
house with her heart full of bitter rebel
When Hiram at last awoke, dreading
his wife's displeasure at the non-per
formance of bis task, he secured his
fishing pole surreptitiously and disap
Mrs. Peters, an old friend of Mandy
Hopkins’, was waiting for her when she
returned from the garden. Mrs. Peters
could have chosen no more unpropitious
time for asking, after a short chat:
“Fer mercy sakes, Mandy, whatever
possessed you to marry Hiram Hop
Mrs. Hopkins’ upper lip drew in om
inously as she answered, stiffly:
“I was lonesome and needed a man
about an’ Hiram—he loved me.”
(The other laughed dryly. “Loved
yer prop’rty, more like,” she remarked.
“Folks says it’s a born pitty he don't
keep it up better’n what he does. Look
at them fences ready to keel over!
Whatever ails yer garden? It's a
righteous shame to look at. Can’t—”
Without a word Mandy Hopkins rose
and marched out of the room with
darning cheeks, and though the med
dlesome Mrs. Peters waited for ten
minutes and made a careful examina
tion of the house and cellar in hope
of finding her. she remained invisible,
and the visitor departed in high
Out in the back pasture lot. under a
great old apple tree, poor Mandy writh
ed and sobbed in anguish of heart, un
mindful of the fragrant pink petals that
fell around her and softly touched her
sobs in pity for her pain. Between her
sobs she told herself that affairs had
come to such a crisis a few years she
would not have a roof to cover her
head. Besides this, as Mrs. Peters had
said, folks were talking ,and that was
the last straw.
Having formulated a plan she cheek
ed her tears and composing her coun
tenance returned to the deserted house.
Toward the edge of the evening Hi
ram, carrying a good string of fish,
slowly entered the yard. He tried
the kitchen door, and finding it lock
ed. although sounds could be heard
within, he called out: “Mandy. lye
fetched a mess of fish for supper.”
Receiving no answer, he called
louder: “Mandy, let me in. Here’s
some fish to cook for supper.”
At this the little sliding window in
the living room was pushed back cau
tiously and Mrs. Hopkins’ face ap
“Hiram Hopkins,” said she sharply,
“I ain’t goin’ to let you in nor to cook
you nothin’ till you promise me, sol
emn earnest, to mend your ways an*
take care of this prop’ty as it should
There was such determination in her
1 voice that the luckless man knew
every word was meant. Shocked and
amazed at this unexpected disaster,
he sat down on a bench near the house
to meditate. Presently he rose and
going to the window said loudly:
•’This ain’t the way to treat your
lord and master, Mandy. an’ I don’t
pu'pose to stand it. 'Taint the way
to treat me—your lawful husband, to
honoV and obey, as the parson put it
when he jined us.”
Again the window was pushed back
a crack and Mandy declared that
“she’d honor and obey him when he
promised to do his duty by her and
the place, and give up his idle, lazy
ways, and not until then.’’
At this Hiram sullenly withdrew to
the bgnch and the window was once
more pushed into place.
Mandy hoped that Hiram would
promise and he hoped that she would
relent, and neither of them calculating
upon the other manifesting much firm
upss. their surprise, was mutual when
10 o’clock found the situation unchang
The night grew very chiily ar.d Hi
ram tried to rest, shivering on the
bench, sometimes pacing up and down
endeavoring to get warm. His wife
pitied him. but fortified herself by say
ing that she could not j'i^ld to an im
pulse of pity now. for this was the
contest of a lifetime.
At last the longest night she had
ever spent drew to a close, and at the
first approach of day she peered anx
iously out to see what had become of
Hiram. He was lying on the bench,
and she told herself scornfully that she
need not worry- as he was, as usual,
taking it, eas.y
However, as tne cany moriua* s? nuuiB

pain caught him and he fell back with
Mandy saw that his clothes were wet

probably contracted pneumonia.
•*If he dies I'm his murderer,” she
cried distractedly, as she looked around
for help. The place was too far off fhe
road to make It possible to attract pa*s
ers-by. so Mandy rushed franticaly to
the lean-to and returned with the
wheelbarrow. After some trouble -he
managed to push Hiram’s helpless
figure into the novel vehicle and slow
ly wheeled him to the house.
Despite the solemnity of the affair it
was a grotesque and laughable sight,
for Mr. Hopkins was tail and lank, so
that his legs dangled over the sides of
the barrow, and shook limply at every
movement of the wheel.
At last the house was reached and
the door so lately barred against him
was opened to admit Hiram, now so
strangely stil and pale.
Verejr gently Mandy rolled him off
I the barrow on to the lounge and as she
did so be opened bis eyes and whisper
