Some of the People a Reporter Met
and Some of the Points of
the Promenader*.
"There goes Kenna."
| "When fetor
"The man on the inside."
The reporter was strolling down Market
street recently, with a country friend lean
ing on hia arm, aad pointed to where the
Congressman from the Third District was
walking slowly along, engaged in oonrer
satioo with J. J. Woods.
"Kenna is legging now for the Senate,"
said the reporter, confidentially, "and
seems very confident of warming Henry G.
Dayia' seat. Charleston is his home, bat
he makes himself at home wherever he
goes. When Congress is not in session he
takes his horse and his hoands and goes
out among the counties of his district
He'll ride all day with the farmers, make
a speech to them at the Court House, aad
later on will swing the bow to his violin
while the lads and lassies dance. That's
why he's so solid in his end of the State.
Oh, yes. he's married. He married Miss
Annie Benninghoose, who was quite a
belle here several years ago. She is of the
brunette type and very pretty."
"Did you say that was Joe Woods with
him? Seems to me I've heard of him."
"t>h, yes, no doubt yon hare. Joe has
been in the State Senate and is now a mem
ber of the House. He hopes to swing the
gavel next month. Joe is a lawyer of some
talent and is pretty well heeled.' He know*
how to keep money, but is not a bit close."
"There they go into a saloon. Oh. no, it
isn't either; it's a news depot. Who is
this?"
"That's Col. William L. Hearne, of the
Riverside mill, one of the solid men of
Wheeling. He represented this connty in
the legislature (our years ago. He's a Tittle
bnllheade4, but full of good, sensible ideas
and a genial gentleman. He's very well
off and hse put bis monsy where it will do
the most good. Some years ago he came to
Wheeling with $200,000 cOldf cash, but he
did not send it away for investment, like
some of Wheeling's wealthy men have
done, but he pat it into the iron works,
where it helps to give employment to a
thousand men. It would be a good day for
Wheeling when others of her wealthy men
would follow his example. He has done
{ more for the working men of Wheeling
than all the stump orators who talk^o loud
ly. His son Frank is Manager of the Riv
erside Mill, and although yet quite young,
has one of the longest beads, on iron, in the
j country. He is at the head of this new
steel nail project, of which you may have I
i heard."
Just then a man of medium height, with J
a nervous, electric step, passed by. He 1
wore a well-fitting business suit and looked
.'miling and prosperous. In reply to a
querv from his friend the reporter said:
'•That is Joe Speidel, a wholesale grocer j
on Main street. He is a self-made man
and very well off. He is President of the
Board of Commissioners, and is said to run
I tlie Hoard. He is an energetic, pushing
I man, and has manv friends ;and enemies.
Last October an etfort was made to defeat
his re-election to the Board, but Joe wjrked '
like a Trojan and pulled through by a
small majority. There is talk of running
him as the Republican candidate for Mayor
at the next city el ection.
"Here comes a pair of men you want to
look at. The one on the outside with the
mutton chop whiskers and smile-at me hat
is George Hook, and his companion, with
out much hair is Sam. McCotloch. One is
clerk of the County Court and the other of
the Circuit Court, ami lieorge is a Demo
crat and Sam a Republican. They ran to
gether at election and each got nearly a j
thousand majority. Strange, wasn't it, but !
it shows the independence of the average*
Ohio county voter.'*
By this time the friends had turaed
down Chapline street, from Twelfth and
approacheed a portly gentleman, walking
leisurely along. His left band wa> in bis
pocket and his right held a curved
black walking stick. The raven of his','
chin whiskers was just streaked with grey,

Artlele* Too Be»wUf"l •• Allowed
to Keuantn.
Yesterday atternoon a young man named
Herbert Hsrwood was arrested in Miuund
Working's pharmacy, corner Cnapline and
Twelfth streets, having been detected In
the set of stealing a beautiful toilet case.
He had put it under his coat, hnt one ot
the clerks caught a glimpse of the old gold
nlush with which the case was covered and
at once seized him. Mr. Hocking re.use
to prosecute the youth, whose eicuse was
that the toilet stand was so beautiful that
Ue coul'i tot help stealing it. He had no
money, and the box caught his eye and he
uj,t put it under his coat. Mr. Bj*^l">
afterward told a Rniwru reporter that his
nti>ck of goods of that description was so
tine and new that he was not ^
the attempted theft, and could not find it
in his heart to proeecute the boy.
The toilet case in question Jwas soon after
purchased by a lady who-e attention it had
attracted. It was ouly one of a great many
he has on hand, and which he is constantly
renewing as they are sold.
New additions to the vocabulary of pret
ty expressions are every day made by the
'iilies who look at the beautiful articles on
exhibition at Mr. Bockiug's store. The cut
and engraved glass bottles, the dainty and
unique odor stand> and cases, the traveling
sets and gentlemen's shaving and toilet
sets are almost too beautiful for descrip
tion and yet are within the reach of ever)
body's purse. They range in price from
the cheapest to the most expensive, tor

DEATH UN THE RAII
Wm. V lien Killed by the Train nt j
Bridgeport.
Yesterday the Steabenville accommoda
tion train, due at Bridgeport, at about 12
o'clock, ran over and instantly killed an
unknown man a short distance north of
the C. & P. depot. The victim of the un
fortunate accident is supposed to Ik1 a man
of about twenty-five years of axe, with
light hair and moustache and a small
goatee. On his left arm were the initials
"W. A.," picked in indelible ink.
Upon being searched four dollars and
seventy-five cents in cash and a railroad
ticket from Coshocton to Wheeling and
return was found.
No blame whatever can be attached to the
engineer or employes of the train, as the
train was running at a slow rate of speed,
and if the man had been in his right mind
the accident certainly would have been
avoided.
Wm. Allen, of Coshocton, (>, came down
from that place, yesterday, and he is be
lieved to be the unfortunate man.
A FAVsION I'OK BKKF.
John Uiltlfbrr'i Way or Volufc to
, Mnnndm lllf.
On Friday last a man callinu himself
John Galligher, with several alias* * besides,
claiming tv> bail from Pomeroy, Ohio, and
who asserts be has been about the city and
along the river working for Mr. Miller and
other farmers for the past seven weeks,
came to the city with ? William Burdett,
and got to spreeing around. While thus
engaged he wrote an order on Mr. Ebbert, a
coal dealer running a coal bank just north
of the Mty limits up the river, signed
Mr. Ebbert's name to the order, and thus
armed be presented it to butch* number
one. On this he realized $1 10. He then
j took it to the Tidal Wave saloon and want
ed to pawn the roast of beef for twenty tive
cents. The saloon man suspected that some
thing was rotten in Denmark, notified the
police and tne bovine Joha was furnished
; an escort to the office of Justice William
Philips. The testimony being overwhelm
, ing as to bis guilt, he was held in $500 bail,
; and in default ot the security he was sent
! to jail. Thus ends chapter number one.
On yesterday another butcher called at
the jail, with I.ieut. Sylvia, and asked per
! mission to see Ga Higher, and as soon as he
! saw him identified him as the man who
! had presented an order purporting to have
I been signed by Mr. Burt Westlaws. and on
the faith of which Mr. John Kock, butcher
No. 2. let him have $1 35 in beef. Of course,
like tbe first one, it, too, was a forgery.
How many more of this kind are still out we
don't know yet, but perhaps we will find
out bye-and-bye. This bovine dealer is not
very prepossessing in appearance and looks
to be about thirty years of age. He was
held by the same Justice on the second
offense Jin the sum of £>00. and stands com
mitted on two distinct felonies, with posi
tive proof against him, and bis prospects
good for a trip to Monnsville. He says he
is «orry for what he has done, but it can't
be belped now.. He is a coal miner by oc
cupation. and wo tujhave commenced wtrk
for Mr. Ebert on Monday next, so he says.

A. A. I. 8. W.-The A. A. I. 8. W , an as
sociation comprised of nail feeders, gave a
grand ball, Friday evening. at Irwin UalL
It was the only public baJl of the weak,
and was consequently largely Attended.
Two hundred and fifty couples war* on th«
floor. Mayer fumiabed the music in good
•tyle. The affair was perfectly orderly
throughout, and was protracted till late in
the morning. It was a spledid social and
financial suocesa.
P. H. 8.—This club met Thnrsdiy even -
ing, at the residence of Mrs. Habbtrd,
Chap line street, South Side. The evening
was passed pleasantly at the whist table,
this being the purpose of the club's forma
tion. Tbe yoong ladies and gentlemen
comprising it are developing into prac
tised players and contest aome very excit
ing rubbers. Mis* Lucie entertained her
guests with unaffected grace and hospi
tality. The party broke np at half-past
eleven. The meetings of tbe .club recur
weekly, alternating at the ladlea' homes.
ArrLEOATF..—Quite an enjoyable affair at
the tesidence of Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Ap
plegate, at their home in Wellsburg on
Friday evening, in celebration of the thir
tieth anniversary of their marriage. Among
the guests present we notice Miss Lolu De
long, of Belmont County, Ohio; Mrs. John
Daugherty, Richmond, Ohio; Miss Sallie
McCormick, Wheeling; Mias Lizzie Fisher,
Miss Jennie Johnson, Independence, Pa ;
Mrs.Walker Fulton,Mr. Samuel Trumbull.
Mr. Samuel Delon?, Belmont county, an<)
many others. After a splendid sapper
dancing was indulged in until late. The
presents were many, elegant and costly.
Cassel—A charming little tea party was
given, Friday evening, at the residence of
Mr. Levi Cassel, Fourteenth street It was
given by Miss Jennie, who performed the
role of hostess very pleasingly. The sap
pier was very elegant, comprising substan
tial and delicacies, served according to
every variety of style. At 7 o'clock the
guests assembled at the table, Miss Cassel
presiding. Bonsmots and piquant conver
sational sauce were the condiments of the
supper and circulated in concurrence with
the viands. After supper the guests re
turned to the parlors and passed the even
ing in social intercourse. Dancing was a
feature of the evening and helped to hurry
on the honrs. The company was thorou^h
ly harmonious and protracted its festivities
till 12 o'clock. It was a bright little affair
in everj* particular. The following young
ladies and gentlemen were among those
present: Misses Seabright, Annie Meyers,
Lizzie Meyers, Lottie 8chultz, Kmraa
Bchultz, and Messrs. Staram, Hoffman an!
Jeffers.
Norton—A whist soiree was given at the
residence of Col. Sam Norton, Garden Spot,
Friday evening. It was a select little affair
and passed off very pleasantly. The co>y
and handsome parlors of Mr. and Mrs.
Norton wore a homelike air, as thevalways
do. The guests began to assemble about
eight o'clock, and by half past some four
distinct parties were fighting for the rub
ber. A glance at the names subtended will
show that this little coterie comprised
some whist players who have a local repu
tation. Itwas notan assembly of tyros.
Nobody played according to the suggestion
of long experience. It was perhaps as
pretty a contested game, at each table, a9 is
; often seen. Mrs. N rton, Miss Bruce, of
Cumberland, Md., her guest, and the Misses
I Chapline were the hostesses of the evening
and performed their duty well. At eleven
j o'clock tbe battles were suspended, in or
! der to discuss an oyster supper with con
I constants, always exceptionally delectable
when served at this home, where cuisine is
! a tradition. The supper and the progress
j of the cards were discussed similtane
! ouslv, but the former did not suffer. It
was thoroughly canvassed before the rein
I vigorated players deserted it for a final
I rubber. Tne affair will be pleasantly re
membered by those who were present
The list includes: Misses Brnce, Ida Har
den, Clara Fisher, Pendleton, Genie Pen
dleton, Chapline, Annie Chapline, Laura
1'pdegrafl, and Messrs. Brose List, C. Tall
I man, Ed. Hazlett. J. C. Coffer, John Rhiel
daffer, George Baird and Alex, I'pdegraff.
Simi*«)n.—Tbe residence of Mr. Win. B.
Sim]*on. Fifteenth street, was the theatre
; of a pleasant little evening company,
I Thursday evening, limited as to numbers,
; but recherche as to quality. Miss Ada
] Simpson gave a small tea, with whist as an
I afterpiece, to a few of her friends. Whist
resumed its reign again, last week, after
the intermission of Thanksgiving week.
| There were not many formal parties the
j rubbers were not arranged before band. In
fact, with a few notable exceptions there
have been no parties of any descriptions,
no gatherings of the clans. The lassitude
and ennui resulting from the preceding
week, in conjunction with the chilling
effects of the borealian wave of the last
several days, almost reduced the social sys
tem to its former lethargy. There was the
| same lark of movement which marked so
| ciety before the recent paroxysm. Still
' here and there was a formal party ronven
i tionally provided for, and a great many
; that were not formal, and, as has been
j already intimated, card parties azain be
came the order of the day. Some devotees
' of the game assembled in the parlors of Mr.
Simpson on this occasion. At half past
seven the cozy little coterie discussed an
appetizing supper, after which was an im
mediate procession to the parlors and the
formation of several concurrent rubbers.
The company broke up at eleven. Those
present were: Misses Mollie List, Lillie
Maker, Isadore Pollack, Minnie Palmer
(Miss Pollack's guest), and Messrs. Ad and
Charlie Tallman, Sam Miller, J. O. Coffer
and John Davenport.
Bitlep..—The Social was entert-ainel
Friday evening at the residence of Mr.
Butler, Twelfth street. His daughter. Miss
Lou, did the hospitality of thehonse in her
own genial way. The rainon d'rhe of the
| Social was fully developed in a former
! issue. Whist is the rinc qua non of its en
tertainments, but not the exclusive feature
As a society it is not exclusive, but varied
in its sources of amusement. Their even
ings are strewu with music, danciug and
sometimes literary performances. On this
, occasion, however, whist and dancing di
! vided the honors. There may seem some
inconsistence to the older generation, in
• blending whist and dancing; but whist is
not played with the same essentials. The
■ same incidentals are not in vogue. This is
' a different age. and has its own customs.
Formerly whist was played in supreme
I silence. Any conversation extraneous to
| the frame would have been a betiste of the
1 first water, and the offender would have
I met with a severe rebuke from the rest of
the tables. But in these progressive days so
cial conversation is a nartof the game. Such
a person is dissected during this hand and
such an event recounted during another.
To be sure, it is not every person that can
take part in the game and the conversation
without i onfusion. Some get the trumps
and personalities decidedly mixed, but
what's the odds? Sic vita vivetus in the
nineteenth century. At 10:30 o'clock an
adjournment was made to the dining room,
where a savory spread was nicely served
and attentively studied. After supper the
different phases of the social evening were
resumed until midnight, when the bright
party broke up. The following members
were in attendance: Misses Lou Butler,
Jessie Bates. I-ou Cummin*, Mary Dickey,
Jessie List, Carrie Smith, Lillie Baker, Jen
nie Hopkins, and Messrs. George Laaghlin,
Charley List, Walker Frissell, Albert
Franzhelm, Harry Coen, Frank Robertson
and Bernard Payne.
Bancs—The Oarden Spot was not ex
haosted by the festiviiies of Thanksgiving
week. The yonng ladies and gentlemen
comprising i'ts representative social circle,
had still sufficient vivacity to participate
in another large dance. There is an enter
prise and congeniality in this particular
set which constitutes asociety in itself and
makes it independent,though not exclusive.
There is, however, an esprit rlr evrp* In
their ranks which characterizes their com
panies with unusutl harmony and zest.
They completed their circle Wednesday
evening, at the residence of Mr. Braes.
The commodious house wis genially
lighted and thrown open to the merry
host of invader*. The parlors were taste
fully arranged, always with an eye to the
grand pnrpuse, the wait*, and wore an air
of unaffected hospitality. The company
was given by Miss Carrie, who received
her guests very gracefully. Kramer made
the nouse rood with his incomparable
music, while the guests were arriv
ing, doffing theit wraps, and aggre
gating their loveliness in the parlors be
low. The spirit of the waltz was not long
in manifesting itself nnder the persuasion
of the orchestra, and the evening's revelry
was soon inaugurated. The "mazy" con
tinued without interruption till Midnight,
when the measure of the dance was con
verted into a march, and the happy crowd
advanced with intrepid fortitude to the
, banquet board. By one o'clock 'each sev
eral vacuum was filled, and the whirl was
recommenced and maintained with spirit
till the hour* were no longer young. It
was a pleasant affair throughout, and will
compare witfe the usual entertainment of
the Island set The young ladies and gen

Gut as—A pleasant little tea was given,
laat evening, at the raaidenoa of Mrs. UJasi,
LaBelle street. Soatb 8id*. Miss Hattie
Glass was the hostess of the occasion, en
tertaining a limited number of her friends
very happily. At eight o'clock sapper was
served, and the yonng epicureans fathered
around the wel! laden ooard. Good humor,
a good appetite, and a good faaat always
tend to a soocesaful entertainment. Good
humor is the normal condition of the gay
parly convened on this occasion; the- good
appetite was partly provoked by the appe
tizing menu and partly by the bracing
atmosphere; and the good feast goes with
out saying. The three conditions being
present, it is unnecessary to say the tea was
a success. After supper the evening
was paaaed in social conversation
snd other conventional modes of whirl
ing away the bours. These little gatherings
consummated under the various titles of
teas, suppers, etc., limited as to number
and congenial as to material, are quite pop- i
nlar in social circlcs. They promise to be [
very general this winter. It is a very en
joyable way of entertaining and much
more easily made a success. The guests
can be readily selected, owing to the small
number, with an especial regard to con
geniality. The one in question, of last
evening, waa exceptionally qualified by
success. The young hostess acquitted her
self of ber duties with much grace and
sweetness, and largely contributed to the
enjoyment of ber guests. The following
list comprehends those who were present:
Misses Lucy Hubbard, Loring, Jennie
Woods, Lucie Loring, Carrie Handlan, and
Messrs. Fred Fisher. Walter Bloomfield,
Walker Frissell, Chaa. List, Bates Woods,
and Irwin Singleton.
Chataiwa—There is no intelligent citi
zen of Wheeling who has not heard of the
C. L. 8. C., whose centre is at Lake C'ha
tauqua during the summer months, and
whose circumfrrence is thst of the coun
try itself. Dut there are, perhaps, a great
maty who not know there is a local cir
cle in the city, whose organization is com
plete, aad whose membership is of respect
able proportions. The advantage of these
societies, the mental discipline and fric
tion of ideas invoked is inestimable. The
great drawback that handicaps most liter
ary societies is the experience and trouble
requisite to outlive a course of study and
[ put it in o]>eration. But in tlio case cf
Cbatauqiia, the programme for each year
is marked out, provision is made to pur-,
j chase the curriculum, the first cojt of the
I books, and nothing is required of local en*
terprize bnt organization. A four years'
course of reading and study under the aus
pices of the society is an education in it
self. For those who are not sufficiently
equipped for rudimentary education
to be able to take up the course,
a preliminary discipline is prepared
j In truth, it is a National institution, and
proposes to radiate into all sections and all
classes, inspiring and directing mental ex
ercise. Every year some fresh facility,
| suggested by experienced practical wants,
I is incorporated into the system, the latter
i advancing with the students. The Wheel
I ing circle meets Friday evening of every
I week, at the United Presbyterian < burch.
at half-past seven o'clock. The officers and
, members of the society extend a cordial in
{ to its friends and the general public to be
present. They are invited either as visitors
' or members. All that is necesary in order
to become a member of this delightful cir
cle is to attend one of the assembler and
! give your name to the Secretary. Thpre
are hundreds of young men in this city,
who have had but limited opportunities of
j education, that would willingly pursue a
| course of evening study if they only saw
I their way. It might be to the advantage
| of these boys to give the circle a call. It is
| not a church institution. It simply con
l venes at the church. Members of other
churches, or members of none, are equally
| welcome. If one does not care to join the
circle, information can be there received
| how to communicate with the Centra! 80
i ciety, and prosecute a course of individual
I study.

PROBABLE HOMICIDE.
Shooting Affray it Wo»t Wheellig
Yeiterday.
Albert Conaway Breaks in Amos CurJay's
Door and is Shot—He Will Prob
ably Not Recover.
Abont four o'clock yesterday afternoon
a shooting affray took place at Weat Wheel-•
ing, which will probably turn out a homi
cide. From tbe facts, as nearlybe
ascertained, the shootiof waa more W leaa
justi liable, and at last accounts no arrest
had been made.
Albert Conoway is a worthless fellow
about 26 years of age, who resides in the
west end of Bridgeport, lie hears a bad
reputation and is avoided by peaceably
disposed persons. Yesterday afternoon he
was in Bellaire and camc up as far as
West Wheeling in a buggy with a Mr.
Crawford. Stopping there he went to the
house of Amos Curley, a boiler at the
Aetua Mill. Curley, who is said to be a
very civil personage, was engaged in cut
ting his brother's hair. Conoway began at
onre to make himself disagreeable and end
ed by becoming very insulting. When he
could stand it no longer, Curley put him
out of the house and locked the door.
With vengeance in his head, Conoway
Kent away, but soon returned with
a heavy plank, with which he began
tkundering ch the door. Curley ordered
him to desist and warned him there would
he trouble if he persisted. Bat Conoway
did not hear, and Curley drew a revolver
and began firing. At the fonrth shot Con
oway fell heavily to the ground. Curley
examined him and found he was seriously
injured and bleeding profusely from his
left side. He accordingly summoned aid and
Conoway was placed in a carriage and ta
ken home. Here I)r» Wagner
attended him. The ball struck
his left arm, and passed into his
left breast, glancing downward and enter
ing the lungs. A protfe was inserted, but
all effort to llnd the ball was useless. The
bleeding was Jterrilic and at 10:.'J0 o'clock
it was extremely doubtful if the wounded
man would live until this morning.
As far as could be learned, no steps to
investigate had been, tuken by the authori
ties. It is presumed, however, that Curley
wonld not evade an examination. All
through Bridgeport Conoway bears a
terrible reputation, while C'uriey's is
good.
