The public is always interested in know
c what are the latest styles, especially iu
•.emen’s wear. Every fall since the
f Adam the genus" homo, otherwise
vn as man, has naturally turned his
»:?*•:,tion to the question of what to wear,
is choice of garments has run all the
jWr.y from the primitive fig leaf to the med
- winter ulster. Undoubtedly there never
is never been a season when fewer radi
■ changes were to be noted, but this is
~ -e than compensated for by the
'h arid trimining of garments,
which, though not generally observable
' the consumer’s eye, are carefully
''. lied by tho practical tailor, who, by
. methods, stamps his product as cus
' work and lends to each garment un in
i' duality that there is no mistaking. It
- generally conceded that coats, with but
few exceptions, will be cut longer and
w. dsts shorter. In this respect, however,
‘ vn* is no tendency to exaggeration or
;■"•■ iuetion of monstrosities, but on the con
trary, there is a strong disposition to raod
■ ni*. >n, and a general effect is aimed at
rutDer than a radical change. For business"
w.'nr there is no doubt but what the browns
.11 tans will be the mast iiopular, still
v dl checks are raging as choice styles for
business suits. For dress suits, clay wors

WILL CHILTON.
The Handsome Charlestonian Cannes a
Commotion In Local Political Circles.
Capt. Will Chilton, the handsome Demo
cratic hustler from Charleston, and law
partner of Senator Kenna, has been at the
Windsor Hotel for several days back, and
rumor has it that Will is in the oity on po
litical business.
Will is not only popular but is known all
over the big Kanawha Valiey as a con
spicuous figure about county and State
Conventions in which he has any interest,
near or remote. He has a reputation for
treat political astuteness, and the candi
d ite woo eojoy9 his confidence and can £et
hrn^odo some work at or near Convention
ume is very lucky.
Since the Captain set his handsome fig
ure in town, the political gossips have been
buzzing until they have turned a gentle
zephyr into a good sized gale, which, in
effect, is that ho wants the next State Con
vention at Charleston, and is as busy as
the busiest bee working for that end.
Of course when the gossips get to this
conclusion they inquire what actuates the
Captain to interest himself so earnestly in
that connection. And thereby hangs a
tale. ;Be it known, that W. A. McCorkle,
of Charleston, a prominent lawyer and an
excellent Democrat, is a strong candidate
for Gubernatorial honors.
If the convention were held at
Charleston it would be for obvious
reasons, satisfactory to Mr. McCorkle.
Now the question arises whom, if any,
of the several candidates in this end of the
State is the Captain calling upon, or is the
story all a canard I We have first, for
gubernatorial honors W. C. Handlan, Esq.,
and Hon. Robert White; for Auditor,
Hon. Dave Garden and Thomas S. Darrah,
Esq.; for Attorney General. Chairman
T. t>. Riley. All Democrats of the purest
water and each capable and worthy of
i honorably filling the position to which he
I aspires.
Has Capt. Will Chilton called on each
j and every one of these gentlemen to ascer
tain how the land lays, or has he Just been
feeling around to see which, if any, can lay
j greater claim to the stalwart Democracy
j of Ohio county than the other fellow f Time
| will tell, but be that as it may, Will Chilt
I on’s arrival in the ci;y has kicked up quite
u commotion in certain quarters.
AN INNOVATION.
A Notable Addition to an Already ITand
toius i'iaee of Kusinexs.
Early in tbocomine week ground will
bo broken in the rear of the jewelry
| store of Wheat & Hancher for an addi
tion to tiieir already largo and beautiful
i store room, which, when completed,
will be a little ahead of auyth'.ng in the
1 retail line in this or almost any other
i city. The new addition will bo 28x17
I feet in ground dimensions by about
twenty feet to the couter of the ceiling,
and will be used as an art room for the
display of the choice lino of goods car
ried by the firm in that department.
Tho plans show a very novel, striking,
and beautiful desiga, and as the archi
tect and builders were given carte
blanche as to expenditures, they are nat
urally iloing their level best to combine
novel and beautiful designs and effects.
In this ambition they have apparently
succeeded beyond reasonable expecta
! tion, and tho apartment will attract
; wide attention when thrown open to i
I the public.
Our Dre«t» Goods Department.
Wo do not uudorjtaud how you can
' sell Black Dress Goods so much cheaper
than other houses, is what is heard
every hour in our Dress Goods Depart
ment. Our reasons are: We buy in
large quantities and always for cash.
Whenever a house is wanting money
badly they always hunt a house that i
can pay spat cash, no matter how large
the quantity. In that way we can buy
and sell our customers Dross Goods at
less prices than smaller houses pay for
same goods. Our 74 cent Silk Warp
Henrietta Cloth caunot be bought else
where under Si.00. The past week we
bought 100 pieces Black and all colors
All-Wool Bedford Cords from a manu
facturer that Deeded money badly at a
very low price. To-morrow we place
them on sale at 73 cents a yard. They’re
worth everywhere £1.00 a yard. Come

Tke Lay DslegaUs Report to th» Cpcference.
Bishop Warren Hakw an InUrestitg Ad
dress—Kotos of the Meeting.
The interest in the Methodist Confer
ence which has been so profitably sessioned
at the Fourth Street Methodist Church re
mains unabated, as was evinced by the
large attendance at the meetings yesterday.
Thero was no afternoon meeting, yet the
morning session, though largely devoted to
routine proceedings, attracted a large
gathering. The meeting was opened with
the usual devotional exercises by Rev. J.
Engel. Upon opening the session Bishop
Warren spoke of the significance of the
morning lesson, after which the Commit
tee on Examination made its report on the
Rev. William Cox. The candidate was
not present at the time, and the case was
temporarily deferred. The examination
committee reported favorably on Rev. E.
J. Curtis. „
Bishop Warren introduced a number of
ministers, among whom was the Rev. Dr.
Beam, Secretary of the Board of Education
of the Methodist. Episcopal Church, and the
Rev. Dr. Chadwick, Secretary of the
Freedmen’s Aid and Southern Education
Fund. , .
The local ministers who were elected to
Deacon’s orders were Benson B. Brooks
and John W. Woodruff.
The Committee ou Missions submitted
its report. It said the demands for mission
support were so urgent that it recommend*
ed the organization of the Sunday schools
into missionary societies, and to make extra
efforts to put forth the literature of the so
ciety everywhere it would do good work.
The report was adopted. The Statistical
Secretary made his regular report for the
year.
After the reading oi tne statistical report
the Conference proceeded to ballot for the
dolegato to the General Conference.
While the tellers were out Bishop Warren
appointed the following committee to wait
upon the lav electoral Conference and in
vite it to meet the Ministerial Conference:
Tho Revs. Dr. Cushing, S. Ernest Jones
and Dr. Fullerton. The Lay Conference
soon after went into joint session with the
Ministerial Conference. Tho report of tho
Lay Electoral Conference showed that
the following gentlemen had been elected
as lav delegates to the General Conference:
D. A. Martin, Charleston: H. P. McGregor,
Wheeling, Alternates, B. F. Martin, Graf
ton, and VV. P. Willey, Morgantown. Af
ter tho report had been read, Bishop
Warren gave an address to tho
lay delegates, touching upon the educa
tional question, particularly in reference
to the tYest Virginia Conference Seminary.
His remarks were very earnest and inter
esting throughout.
At the conclusion of the Bishop’s re
marks'the Lay Conference was dismissed
with the doxology.
After'the Lay Conference withdrew, tlic
result of tho ballot for ministerial delegate
was announced, and resulted in no elec
tion. The vote stood: S. Ernest Jones.
40; J. Fullerton,*36; L. H. Jordan, 4S. Af

introduced and addressed the Conference.
Dr. Pains, the Secretary of the Board of
Education, was next introduced and spoke
oi the work of the Board, and continuing
said: The Board was organized in lbtfe.
The work it is doing is of two kinds, a gen
eral work anil a pacific work. If there is an
heroic band in tne whole 112 Conferences
of the M. E. Church, the West Virginia
Conference is the greatest. We are taking
into the Methodist ministry every year one
thousand men, who are to oe educated in a
manly way. Wo aided last year
nino hundred and two young
men aud one hundred and fifty
eight young women. To do this work we
obtained that mone> collected on Cnildreu’s
Day for the purpose. This church has
250*000 Sunday school scholars and 20,IKK)
Sunday schools. We had an increase of
5,000 last year.”
At the conclusion of Dr. Paine’s address
the Bishop announced the election of Dr.
Jordon as* tho delegate, and elected tno
Revs. s. Ernest Jones aud J. A. Fullerton
the reserve delegates.
The Rev. Dr. Weakly, representing tho
Deacomst Home in Cincinnati, addressed
tne Conference on the usefulness of the new
order of tr.o M. E. Churcn. The deeeon
esses are divided into two classes, me
nurse and visiting classes. Their duties
are to nurse the uiok and visit the poor
aud needy. The order was founded in
Germany twenty years ago, in Franklord
on-lhe-Main, but owiug to difficulties the
order was abolished after a few years’
trial. The work, however, was started
anew fourteen years ago in the same place,
ar.d has grown am1 spread until now its
branches are being rooted into Church
niliAMvar in*, ('hnrrh Mi kiiiin'n.
The Statistical Secretary made the fol
lowing report: Number of probationers,
3,331; nurnoer ol lull members, 59,889; num

The evening session was devoted largely
to educational wont, special stress beiug
laid on tne new Conference Seminary at
Buckbannon. Rev. C. W. Cushing first ad
dressed tne large oongr. ga; ion and made
an earnest plea in uebaif of the institution,
fla clearly showed the value and import
ance of such seminary, und well repre
sented what would redound to all who
willingly opened their heart to support it.
Following Dr. Cusaing came Prof.
Hutchinson, principal of the Seminary, j
who began his remarks by saying that he i
would not inflict upon the patience of the |
audience oy making a long speech nor tak- I
ing a collection, lie spoke of the school in
oetail, aud gave au interesting description
of the various deoartments. He said he
had visited many of the well known
schools in New England and found none of j
them oetter equipped so far as instructors,
location aud appointments were concerned. I
There are about 13U students in attendance, j
and from 10 to 12 teachers. Mr. Hutchin
son said that from (5,000 to #10,OCX) donated
to this seminary would give the institu
tion a great’ impetus, and enaole
the officials to still further promote the
great work of Christian enlightenment.
The Seminary stands for the higheet type
of Christian ae veicpment of the Church of
God of West Virginia.
The design of the Seminary is to furnish ,
* v- ■, 'C ■£,is ji
to students of both sexes opportunities for
a thorough education under Christian in
fluences. It will be the aim of the institution
not simply to produce scholars, but to de
velop character, to promote Christian cul
ture and the truest refinement of thought
and conduct. The various departments of
instruction, including Literary, Normal,
Musical, Fine Art and Commercial, furnish
to almost all classes of students the ad
vantages which they may seek. It is the
intention of the authorities to establish
full college courses just as soon as the re
sources of the institution will permit
At the conclusion of his speech Dr. Chas.
H. Payne, of New York, was introduced,
who also spoke at some length upon the
advantages of seminary training, and the
great value the Buckhannou institution
represented to the State, prefacing his re
marks by stating the power of raethodism.
His addreso was eloquent and interesting.
To-day the various visiting pastors, as
assigned to the different churches and pub
lished in yesterday’s Register, will con
duct services throughout the city. At 9
o’clock this mqrniDg, at the Fourth street
Methodist Church, there will be a confer
ence love-feast, and at the same church at
10:30 Bishop Warren will preach. Af 3
o’clock this afternoon there will be memor
ial services, and at 7:30 there will be an
anniversary of the Freeman's Aid and
Southern Educational Society.

Tuesday, September 29, 1891.
Through all his pains at times ho smiled,
A smile of heavenly birth,
And when the angels called him homo,
He smiled farewell to earth.
Heaven retaineth now our treasure,
Earth the lonely casket keeps;
And the sunbeams love to linger
Where thy sainted brother sleeps.
Jesus, whilh our hearts are bleeding
O’er the spoils that Denth has won,
We would at this solemn meeting
Calmly say, Thy will be doue.
Though cast down, we’re not forsaken;
Though afflicted, not alone,
Th n hast given and Thou hast taken,
Blessed Lord, Thy will be done
Hit Locing Friind D. Jf.
In Msinorlam.
Written in reinembraace of George II. Kite,
who uitd September 2(5, 1891.
Farewell, dear father, sweet thy rest,
Weary with vears and worn with pain;
Farewell, till in some happy place
Wo shall behold thy face agaiu.
’Tis ours to miss thee all our years.
Ami tender memories of thee keep.
Slime in the Lora to rest, lor so
Ho glveth his beloved sleep.
Through all nain at times he'd smile—
A smile of heavenly birth,
While by his ooueh we asked bim,
Was he prepared to bid farewell to earth?
And so, beside the s'lrnt sea,
lie waited the muffled oar;
He knew no harm frern Hun could coma
On ocean or on shore.
He knew net where His islands lift
Their frouded palms in air;
He only knew he could not drift
Ileyond His love and care.
Yet again we hope to meet thee
W bt-n the day of life Is fled.
And in heaven with joy to greet thee,
Where no farewell tears are shed.
His Daughter, A. F.
la Memory of Flla Newman, Who Died
.September 16, 1891.
Will you come to my grave
When my spirit has fled.
And l>eneath the green sod
I avn laid with the dead:
When the heart teat loved you
•Is turning to clay,
And in Calvary’s cold dews
I am passing away.
From Heb Sistzr, M. N.
In Memory of Min Newman.
Call not back the dear departed,
Anchored safe where storms are o’er;
On the bolder land we left her,
Soon t» meet and part no more.
Far bevond this world of changes,
Far beyond this world of care.
We shall' fine our missing loved ona
In our Father's mansion fair.

-DRESS GOODS DEPARTMENT
We now continue our unfinished description of this department from last
week—but first a word or two about COLORS. We select our colors-from
UNBROKEN lines generally about three or four months before the seasons
open.—It would not pay to delay our purchases until the seasons are upon
us—the best shades would then be sold out.—Very popular shades this fall
are Bluette, Cornflower and Browns with an Ashes-of-Rose cast.—We have
an almost unlimited number of other good colors, and these are not confined
to any one or two Iine3, but will be found represented in Henriettas, Whip,
cords. French Serges,' Foule Cheviots, Camel’s Hair Cloths, Bedford Cords,
Cheviot Suitings, Broadcloths, and other weaves.—Opera shades in Hen
riettas. Nun's Veilings, Crepe Cloths, etc.—All of the above come in Black
also.—Many novelties in black, and Black and White combinations.—Last,
but not least we now come to Pattern Suits.—There are several hundred o*
these and NO TWO ALIKE.—Competent judges have frequently told us that
we show the best line of these in the city.—Convince yourseif by making a
personal call.—Silk, Feather, Velvet and Braid TRIMMINGS to match all of
our Dress Goods.
I&-CLOAK DEPARTMENT—Upon request we will mail to any address,
a copy of our Fall Circular containing fuH descriptions besides illustrations of
about 150 Ladies’, Misses’ and Children’s Cloaks.
