THE FAIRMONT WEST VIRGINIAN.
THE FAIRMONT WEST VIRGINIAN
(Daily), which has been talked
of for a few months past, is before
you. That it has not appeared sooner
is owing wholly to the fact that the
building it occupies lacked completion.
This building is situated on Monroe
street and next to the Jacobs-Hutchinson
Block. It was erected and is
4 owned by George M. Jacobs, Clerk of
the County Court, and is one of the
handsomest structures not only in
, Fairmont, but in the State.
I As the working force on our new
I - venture is of course unorganized, the
5 paper is far from being what we hope
t<J*m3ke iC The iiiTehtiifn iij to make
it in the fullest sense a newspaper.
We have arranged for a telegraphic
service that covers the entire country,
and the local field will be especially
looked after. As regards the latter
the friends of the paper can aid it
materially by informing our reporters

worthy of mention. The reporters
are expected to gather all the news,
hut this is not possible without the assistance
suggested.
Politically the Daily will be what
the Weekly West Virginian has been
?a Republican organ?not the organ
of a clique or faction, but of the Republican
party of this county. Politics
will not be made a specialty, but
it will be given due attention whenever
occasion makes it necessary.
As we said above, we propose to publish
a newspaper?one that will con_
tain .news that is news, and be at all
limits trustworthy and free from ex'
aggeration. It will be the aim to make
' * _ it meet the wants of all our people?
to make it welcome in every home. It
is not the object to confine it to the
city alone. We expect it to find its
way ere long to the most remote
points in the county. We want it to
merit the support of our people generk
' ally.
The paper is owned by a joint stock
company. This consists of a number

Remarkable Growth. 0
The Republican party was organ- ]
ized fifty years ago. Its story during <
this half century is tbq eventful his- i
tory of thef United States during this
periodf Through almost this entire !
time that party ha(s controlled and i
governed the counm-y. Every Rcpub-. i
lican, therefore, sl/ould feei proud of
its glorious histoyy. and rejoice that
he is a member of so grand an organization.
/
It is well kfiown by students of
political histoyy that Republicanism i
had its birth fin the uprising against
slavery. The/ time was when our
fore fathers / were firm believers in i
thatJ great evil, hut as time went on
'th.fr' becamp conscious of the fact
tnat it was.'entirely too great an evil 1
to have suleh an Iron grasp upon the
American people. However the South
developed jin many kinds of industry,
the southern people- gradually tried
to perpetuate slavery by extending it
into o?Aler states.
Eyery intelligent person is perfectly
familiar with the result. The Missouri
compromise was repealed, giving/
slavery the right to be extended.
At once the north was aflame. Abraham
Lincoln took the stump against '
Douglas, and created a great sentiment
against slavery throughout the '
entire country. From this time on
this great evil was doomed.
/During this half century which has 1
jjist elapsed the Republican party
1/as placed practically all the laws,
that have been passed during this
period, on our statute books. The '
, nation has enjoyed unprecedented
prosperity, and has made remarkable
progress and growth. Our area has
/been increased considerably. The
(number of our states has grown from
jm to 45. The population of the coun,
l_ -i oert 09 flrtfl rtnd' n
Liy li-L iOOU ?> <jlo uuij iau ,\J \j \j ,v \jy ,
It is nearly 80,000,000. In short, the
the progress of the coAtry during
these fifty years is unScampled in
the history of any other nation.
He who would know what the Republican
party has done for the
United States should read the history
of the country for the last fifty years.
Its pages glisten with deeds which
shall remain on record through the
ages. It is not saying too much that '
we are recognized as the greatest na- *'
tion on the face of the globe, and its
" "greatness and prominence is largely /
due to the policies advanced and {
promulgated by the Republican party. *
All hail to its semi-centennial!?Mar- '

Hearst in West Virginia.
There is 110 gainsaying the fact that
William Randolph Hearst is making
inroads upon West Virginia. Two
months ago no one would have supposed
he could have mustered twentj* 1
Democrats in the entire state, but the
returns now show that he is going to
make a good fight for the control of
the state, with good chances of sue
The other day the Calhoun county
Democrats held a mass convention.
No one would have supposed that
Calhoun knew anything about Hearst
Yet resolutions were unanimously
adopted instructing the delegates to
vote for him. Wednesday the Democrats
of Centerville district, Tyler '
county, held a meeting and took action
favorable to Hearst. In tlie
Fourth congress district Hearst, with '
three counties to bear from, has 105 1
delegates, which is more than the '
majority. This insures his at least 5
two of the delegates to the St. Louis :
convention. 1
It is but reasonable to suppose that '
if Hearst has had so much success <
one district, he will meet with a fair 1
share in the four others. That lie
will be a formidable candidate before 1
the Charlestown convention next 5
Wednesday is apparent, and if the 1
"conservatives" wish to retain con- {
trol of the party it would he well for (
them to move from their warm places '
and do some work.?"Wheeling News. 1

candidates, none possessing the necesary
two-thirds controt of the con- cr

possibility of a final rally around Mr. tit

The departure of an ostensible re
Arctic exploration expedition under to
the auspices of the Canadian govern- p?
merit may be the preliminary to a is'
new boundary dispute with Canada, bu
The purposes of the expedition are is'
first, to assert jurisdiction over all the rot
land between Canada and the north
pole, and then to achieve the distinc- 1
tion of reaching the pole itself and, 'la
probably, hoisting the flag of Canada ea
?if it has one?in sign of possession.
The Canadian claim is that all the ^0
land west of Davis straits and Baf- ""
fin's bay and east of Alaska belongs
to Canada. Some Americans are asn-0
serted to have established them- *
selves on this far north land and '
is
unless the Canadians better themselves
in asserting: ownership a sec- an
Dnd Alaskan boundary dispute may
irise.
From Halifax the expedition pro- *)e
poses to so north up Davis straits rai
and Baffin's bay, hoisting the British (la
[lag as an evidence of Canadian oc- to1
pupation and taking a force of mount- *h<
2d police to make its claim of ownership
effective. Another vessel 1
meanwhile is to go to Melville sound to
and Melville island conveying thither pa
mounted police and the Hag.
This is the Canadian programme to
so far as known to' date. Afterward 5^
.he objective point will be the North
Pole and an effort will be made to get
.here before the American, Peary, ca
whose expedition this year has been m<
