Senator Faulkner Decides to Re commend His Appointment to the President, and Files the Papers in the Case With the De partment of Justice — Senator , Faulkner’s Reasons for Selecting I Mr. Wells-Purely a Matter of Geography. Special to the Register. Washington, 1). C., February 29. Senator Faulkner decided to-day to ^i\* his endorsement for the marshal ship to Mr. Charles Wells, of Glovers Cap. and he filed the papers in the case a- the D. partment of Justice before go ing to his home in Martlnsburg. There was some surprise at the Sen ator s action, owing to the very strong fight made for the selection of one of tin candidates from the First district. When asked his reason for indorsing Wells, the Senator said: ••With the numerous applicants, all of whom were good Democrats, 1 had much difficulty in determining what was the proper thing to do. A number o’ tho-e who applied were so located that it was impossible to consider their names, because it would throw the ap pointment in proximity, geographical ly. to one or the other of the two gen tlemen now holding federal offices in the State, the district attorney and the mill'-tor of iutornul revenue, l-rom the time l heard of the sad death of >! \ Garden I was of the opinion that the appointment should go north of a line drawn through Lewis county. As there were only three large federal ot!n • ' for the whole Stale, and four Congressional districts, I felt that geo g ic. 1 location of these offices and not district lines should he considered, and having determined this, i consid ered the claims of all north of the line of which 1 have spoken FROM THE SENTIMENT of those whom I met at Parkersburg, md from communications received lr re, 1 felt that the appointment of Mr. Wells would best meet the require ments of the situation. He is in every way <>>rup' ent and his endorsements covered not only his own section, but every o : < r section of the State. “Before reaching this conclusion, however, I satisfied myself that the successor of Mr. Card, n could not in any way influence matters affecting his ate. 1 felt the warmest personal regard for him, and the deepest sym pathy for his family, and investigated luit qurs ion in order to ascertain what bearing the appointment of his succes sor would have upon any pending ac counts of Mr. Garden as marshal. I found that his accounts were settled and balanced up to January 1st, 1S96. and that all subsequent to that time were of record in books in his office ami would be turned over at once to Mis personal representatives. No one can regret more than myself my ina bility to satisfy all. but from the light before me I have done the best l could looking to the interest of the :v.r:y throughout the entire State. I understand that it will be the policy of Mr. Wells to make no change in the force now employed in the marshal's office. * xcept when necessary and for cause. A Hi prison county delegation, con ns-ing of Messrs. John Barrett, James F. Allen, John C. Johnson, Moore Jackson ami James Sperry, ARRIVED THIS MORNING in the interest of Mr. James Hurry, hit when they saw Senator Faulkner he had already filed his endorsement of Wells at the Department of Justice. Governor Fleming also came in this morning on private business, but in (. a it■ .*:*v to help the Wells boom along. He was accompanied by ex S<-i !•■ ar> of State Ohley. Both called on l*o.''master Coneral Wilson. Ex-Congressman Pendleton was greatly disappointed at the action of Senator Faulkner. He said he though! .h« First district was clearly entitled :o the marshal.-hip and he felt it had been shabbily treated in the matter. F\ ('oi :r* -man \lderson, of the 7 t c: rict arrived her* this morn g on tv.- way to N w York. He said ti .> sel« tion of Wells for the marshal s p suite 1 him very well.

A Farmer From Calhoun County Bumps Agaiust a Gang Of Green Goods Operators in Park ersburg, and Drops Seyentyflvo Dollars on Their Game — Two Brothers Named Poling, Who Claim to Have Also Come Out Loser, Held as Accomplices of the Weston Sawdust Gang. Special to the Register. Parkersburg, W. Ya., February 29.— An old farmer named Herman A. Witte, of Calhoun county, was swindled out of about $75 to-day, supposedly by a man named Jesse Poling, also of Cal houn county, who. together with his brother, Chester, came to this city last night. Poling met Witte at the Commercial Hotel, and told him if he would give him the money he would make "a deal for him by which he would get two dol lars for every one. The old man turned over the money to Poling, who later informed Witte that he had lost Witte’s money as well as his own and displayed a bundle of green goods which consisted of a pack age of blank paper with $1 bills on the top and bottom. Chief of Police Heaton head of the "deal,* and arrested the Polings. When arrested about $100 was found on them and a dangerous looking gun. While being searched, Chester took front his pocket a letter and began ehewiniv it. The officers choked him and forced him to Tl'RX OVER THE LETTER, which read ns follows: “Cumberland, Md., February 23. “Mr. Charles Poling. “Dear Sir:—If you want to make an other deal with me, eoma to Weston, Lewis county, W. Va.. and T will be there from the middle of the month till the last of the month. Come it you want more of it, as you are aware it’s all right and you will find me at the hotel which you met me at before. I am doing a big business in your county now. “Sincerely vours, “J. P. DOUN.” Witte swore out a warrant for Jesse Poling, and he was given a hearing and was bound over in the sum of $500 to appear before the next Criminal Court grand jury, but he failed to give bond and was placed in jail. Chester Poling was also fined $56 for carrying a revolver. Toling claims that he met Doun at the Commercial hotel last night and the “deal’’ was made by which he turned over the money and received a bogus package in return. The officers take no stock in the Polings’ story and claim IT IS ONLY \ FAKE manufactured by them to rob the old man. Of late several letters have been received here from Weston, and the officers think the Polings are accom plices of the "green goods” dealer there. TWO ACCIDENTS. The Steamer Ailsa Cut Down and Sunk by a French Liner—The New York Stuck in tile Sand Near New York. New York, February 29.—The Atlas line steamer “Ailsa” was run down at 2:20 o'clock to-day by a French line steamer, supposed to be the Bourgoyne, while anchored in the channel oil Fort Hamilton. The steamer which struck the Ailsa pulled away from the vessel and disappeared in the mist. All on board escaped without injury, owing to the prompt arrival oi a large tug. A dense log prevailed in the bay and Captain J. W. Morris decided to an chor his vessel until the fog lifeted. The fog bell was kept going as a warning. When the crash came, there was absolutely no warning. The big black hull of the French liner struck the anchored ship about forty feet from the bow.

A Hard Coal Stove, Becoming Over heated, Gives Out Fumes Suffi cient to Kill Eight Persons—No One Thought of the Stove as the Cause of the Trouble, and All Feared to Open the Windows for Fear of Chilling Those Who Lay Unconscious. Chicago, February 29.—Three of a family of eight dead and the other five ! dying is the frightful result of the es J cape of coal gas in the residence of Fred Stuenkel, a farmer living a few i miles southwest of Chicago heights, | near Crete, Will county.

On the floor above the other members of the family slept. In the lower room was a large hard coal stove, which had been tilled for the night. .Mrs. Stuenkel as she went down stairs called to Rosa and said she feared the child was ill. She found her husband lying upon the bed writhing in agony 1 and moaning. Arthur was on the floor behind the stove unconscious. Della was on the bed with her father cry ing. No one seemed to think of the coal gm and the door was kept shut for le. of fooling of the room. The daughter called to the other children to come down stairs. The baby, Re neta, had been crying and was brought along. A few minutes after the fam ily had gathered in the father's room each member began acting in a pecu liar manner. The baby went to sleep. William fell to the lloor and crawled outside into the kitchen. The mother became so dizzy she had to leave the room. Rosa mond remained with her father, and in a short time the gas fumes overcame her, and she fell to the floor. The girl was found there dead some hours later. Not one member of the family seemed to notice the hot stove and the gas. The children ran about half dazed, al ways closing the door behind them. The mother and oldest son fell pros trate upon the kitchen lloor. William recovered sufficiently to crawl out into the yard- There he was seen by his uncle Henry from an ad joining house. Physicians were imme diately sent for and everything possi ble was tione for the surviving mem bers of the family. CONDITION OF THE TREASFRY. Washington, D. C..

C„ February 29.— The administration is reluctant to recog nize even the belligerency of the Cuban insurgents, much less recognizing their in dependence. This Is liiisc-d upon the best information from the seat of trouble. The general tendency of consular reports is that the insurgent cause is not hearly as strong as has been suposed in Congress, j Believing Congress has been misled, tho executive authorities prolnthly will take steps to lay before the influential members of the administration p.irty the facts on which it hares its op'nion that the I’nlted 1 States should not take active steps in the Cuban-S; :tnish contl: 't at this time.

Elected Chairman of the Cxinpaign Com* ; in it tee iu Spite of lli* Deitirti Not to hr fonilili'rrd. Special to the Register. Washington, February 2T—Senator Faulkner was re-elected chairman of the Congressional Campaign Committee j by acclamation, and in a way which is ; highly complimentary to the Senator. | He was not present when the commit- ; tee met for reorganization, being at the time in Parkersburg attending the meeting of the State Executive Com mittee. Before the meeting of the Congres I sional Committee for reorganization, Senator Faulkner informed its mem- , bers that he was unwilling to accept 1 I the position of chairman, because lie j felt that the duties of that position might render it impossible for him to give that attention to the campaign in West Virginia which he desires before ; the fall election. He felt that his duty i was primarily to the party in his State in this campaign, and for that reason, as his name had been mentioned for the chairmanship of the Congressional Committee, lie noped it would not be considered. When ii.- Congrt ssijnai Committee met, however, it soon dc | veloped there was but one sentiment ! among the members representing both the House ami the Senate. This vas that Senator Faulkner should he i - elected chairman, and this sentiment ■ : overruled his own personal wishes in j the matter. Speeches were made com- j mendatory of his efforts during the ' last campaign, and t hr* ability with j which he had managed the affairs of! the committee, and at the conclusion of these remarks Senator Faulkner was re elected by acclamation. It is not known | positively whether or not Senator i Faulkner will accept the chairmanship. It is certain he does not desire to take ! any position which will limit his per I sonal efforts in the approaching cam paign in West Virginia. The pressure brought to bear upon him to accept the position of chairman of the Con gressional Committee lias been very j I heavy, and it is hoped here that ar J rangements ran he made hv which he j I can supervise the workings of the com I niittoe and also la* enabled to take a j personal and active part in the cam paign in West Virginia.
