Tho local drop la the mercury In the twenty-four hours ending at midnight last night, from 75 to 40 degrees, v.as naturally feit considerably by tho folks who ran around Thanksgiving Day with their summer clothes on. but still our share of the Western blizzard was a very moderate one indeed, when the situation during the past three days In tho North west is carefully enquired into. For in stance. on Thanksgiving Day, at Battle ford, N. W. T.. it registered 26 degrees be low zero. Calgary fo below, Edmonton 16 below. Medicine Hat 16 below, duo Ap pelle 10 below, and so on. At many points in the Western States, on Friday, the thermometer ranged from live below zoro to zero, and thcro was from one to two feet of snow over hundreds of thousands of square miles. This was a decided touch of winter, and Wheeling people may well congratulate themselves that they live outside the path of the blizzard. Capt. Asa Booth, now of the United States snag boat Woodruff, came back on his boat yesterday from New Cumber land. where he went a day or two ago to remove a sunken barge, and will lay over here until Monday. Captain Booth says ho will retire from the river, and is partic ularly glad to end his long period of ser vice on the Inland waters on such a fine craft as the Woodruff. He has never had an accident in all the thirty-seven years of his river career. He speak.? in the highest terms of Captain Christian, cf the Woodruff, and his crew, and says they are entirely competent for the very re sponsible service exacted of them. Every body In Who ding will rejoice at Captain Booth's success in the oil business. He will pay a visit to his big well on Monday. “Tire pub’ic criticism, often heard, that our street electric lights are off in candle power very seriously is not well founded,” said Gas Trust, e Turkman, yesterday. "The lamps were lately Inspected, and the expert who made the test stated that Wheeling was one of the best lighted cities In the country. We use a fine grade of carbons, and the lights are all right, ns any competent authority will testify.” “I remember the Welsbaeh light fifteen years ago, before It catno Into common use.” said Thomas E. Lewis, “when its originators were trying to organize a Company ar.d were begging for capital to sro into it. At that time S1.500 invested in •took would have meant a small fortune. It shows wo all have poor judgment at times." “We broke the blast furnace record again this w< *-k.” said Manager Frank Crockard. of tho Riverside, last evening. “We turned out thr > hundre d and seven tons, to-day, which is top notch.” To-day the twenty-fifth anniversary of St. John's German chur. h will be cele brated with a rather elaborate programme. The church is really much older than tho term “twenty-fifth anniversary” implies, that merely expressing the term the con gregation has worshipped in the present edifice at Market and Seventeenth street. The church was really organized in 1S34, tinder tho name of the German Protestant St. James church, and the first church was erected In 1 on Eighteenth street.

November 2".th. in which the Presidential candidate expresses thanks for service.: render. 1 In the silver cause during the iate campaign. Mr. Clark is very proud of his letter. He says that ho dreamed Thursday night that Mr. Bryan was in Wheeling and the i following day—Friday—received the letter addressed to him. The many friends in this city of Hon. X. B. Scott are very confident that West Virginia will have a representative in the new Cabinet, and do not appear to bo at all worried over the news from Texas that there is a rising candidate down that wav for the Postmaster Generalship. Mr. Scott, as a matter of course. Is saying nothing, but his friends are doing what they can in his behalf, while the press, ir respective of political opinion, is putting in a kindly and encouraging word now and then. It is in such little matters ns this that tho Register regrets that it is not Mr. McKinley's favorite newspaper. “I have a very interesting relic of rho great Sanitary Fair which was held on ;l.o sue of tho present Public Building, during the war.” seid Mayor Caldwoll, a day or two ago. while chewing ov**t old reminiscences with a Register reporter. ”It is a handsomely carved an.l Inlaid round dining table, which was ir. do ih tni city and put or. exhibition during the Fair, and which I afterwards bought at auction. The table is really of massive and handsome buitd, and has repeatedly attracted much attention, and 1 have re ceived several offers for it. because of its associations and fine workmanship.

Uorkbeloner, Last Might. Last evening the new elegant cigar emporium of B. F. Horkheimer & Co., at No. 4o Twelfth street, was opened to the public. During the day the work was pushed so as to have the store ready for display in the evening. The place was thronged all evening and I during the day. Among the visitors 'wore many ladies. Each visitor was ! presented with a fine pearl scarf pin as j a souvenir. A visit of inspection was I well worth the time spent and every person there expressed their admira lion of the establishment in the warm | est. terms. During the evening the i Ideal Banjo and Mandolin Club were stationed in the rear of the room and j furnished the crowds some excellent | music. It is certainly a beautiful store i and an ornament to the business por I tlon of the city. It is undoubtedly j one of the finest cigar stands in this I section. ; It is a marvel of beauty and design, j Tho store room has been remodeled | throughout. The furniture inside is of quarter-round oak. The goods are dis | played on the shelving and in large I and" beautiful glass cases. These cases rest on a marble basis, and are of the heaviest and costliest French plate 1 glass. The architecture and decorat | Ions of the establishment are of Moor i Ish design, and the prevailing color I Flemish green. The unique and most interesting fea ! ture of the place is the Oriental smok j ing room. This is divided from the other departments by tapestry and cur tains of Oriental design. In it are placed Oriental rugs and divans for the I comfort and convenience of those who wish to come in with their friends and enjoy a quiet smoke. Mr. Iiorkheimer has spent several thousand dollars in fitting up this place, and has spared no expense to make it a model busi noss’stand. The company are jobbers of cigars and have in stock the finest and most complete line of imported and domestic eiears, pipes and tobacco. They are exclusive agents for Srurk eberg’s celebrated all Havana cirars. Kline’s Symphonies, Arguellez. Lopez &. Co.’s Key West cigars, the famous Geo. W.
