oil Men
will fight
SISTERSVIL.LE, \V. Va., April 30.
?A meeting was held here to-day
among a large number of the oil men
nha rnpcfl neonle are
UL LUIS ..... t A
' going to become quite a factor in the
present campaign in the State on account
of their antagonistic attitude
toward the proposed tax reform bills
which have been agreed upon regarding
the oil business and which will
come up before the special session of
the State legislature in the near future
for action by that body at the
special session which will be called
by Governor .White.
At the meeting held here yesterday
it was decided to form what will
be known as the Eastern Oil Men's
Association, which will be incorporated
with a capital stock of .$50,000.
divided into 5.000 shares at ?10 for
each share. The offices for the new
organization will be established in
Parkersuurg as me mosi. raiuauv
cated city for the oil people of this
State. The primary object of the organization
will be to inaugurate a
vigorous fight against the gubernatorial
candidate who is in favor of
j placing the high tax on oil wells, and
to fight the candidates for legislature
and senate in the different counties I
who are in favor of the same thing.
A mass meeting will be held i:i this j
city on ?.Iay 4th for the purpose of
perfecting the organization.?Wheel- i

While upon the farm, he performed j
all those duties known from the chore- i
boy to the common laborer, attending 1
the district school a few months each ;

At the age of twenty-one he had ac- | .
quired all the education that the (lis- j <
trict school of that (lay could afford, i i
Not satisfied with this meager educa- I
tion to battle the stern -realities of j
life, he decided to go a step higher, i
Acting accordingly, he shouldered his j j
knapsack and marched away to attend ! i
Allegheny College, Allegheny, Pa.. ! j
from which institution he graduated
in June. 1S40. After graduation he
went to Mississippi as a public school j
teacher. Having decided to enter 1
upon the profession of law, he took a j j
systematic course of reading while j
teaching: j 1
After two years he returned to Fair- i ?
mont, Virginia, and having been ! ;
admitted to the bar, he began to practice
law. in which profession he made ]
a success. :

Governor Pierpont became a member
of the Methodist Protestant
Church at the age of eighteen. He
was known not only for liis ability
as a speaker, as a statesman and for
his unselfish patriotism, but also for
his kind, genial nature. It was his
sweet disposition that caused him to

fond of children. It is related of him
that once while holding the oflice of
governor, he took a little child to
President Lincoln to plead for its
brother who was unjustly sentenced
to the penitentiary.
How great was the confidence and
trust reposed in him, is shown in
President Lincoln's tribute, and by ids
followers during the war for the preservation
of the Union; it is said of
Governor Pierpont, by his daughter,
that liis mind was intensely active
with a cheerful severe disposition.
In one of his last letters lie wrote;
"The hand of kindness has led me all
my life, and I am content, but I want
to go to heaven to see how the worlds
a.re made and the stars are hung."

In conclusion, we might change the
lines of Byron, or Sheridan, to read.
Nature formed but one such man, and
broke the die in moulding Pierpont.
Charlie Williams, the colored man
who raised such jl disturbance in I ho
county jail Wednesday night, was ex- ;
amined as to his.sanity this morning
by Dr. Sands. He was pronounced a ,
fit subject: for the asylum at Weston,
where he will be taken as soon as ar- j
rangernents can be made. j ,
Williams was arrested last Monday _
upon complaint that he was acting !
strangely, and that his mind was j
thought to be disordered. He had j
been drinking heavily for some time, j I
lie was put in jail, ana ur. oumw wwo j called
to examine him. He was found !
to be under the influence of some :
kind of dope and was sent back to
jail until he recovered. He grew
worse, and Wednesday night he be- :
came violent.
At the examination this morning j
his sanity was attributed to alcoholism.

To the Sporting Editor of the West !
Virginian :
Sir: In regard to your statement j
about the "High Dive" made at the
"Country Circus" by two of the Y. ?.I.
C. A. acrobats, allow mc to state that
there was in no sense a competition
attempted between Messrs. McC'ray
and Stewart, and furthermore there
were no measurements actually made
fontc. ct-mi r'n?i?#?niientlv no one
can authoritatively say that one man
heat the other. j j
Both of the young men are willing j
to see what tliey can do in this line,
and in an indoor athletic meet short- c
ly to be given before the public at I
the Y. M. C. A. gymnasium, they
will "pull off" the honors for this
event with actual measurements taken
by appointed judges.
