"The cause of the nuisance is the Jackson
Street Carriage Co.'s dilapidated
-old vehicles standing along the street,
and in some cases encroaching upon I
the sidewalk.
Thomas Hajmowi, who recently
completed one of the finest residences
in the city, and which is situated directly
opposite the carriage works,
is the one most affected by this violation
of a city ordinance.
Several days since. Mr. Kaymond
requested Mayor Kinsey to have those
unsightly specimens of wrecked v/aconhood
removed.
His Honor was not guilty of signing
this removal notice without looking
at the names of the parties interested,
but instead asked Mr. Haymond if
he desired to swear out a warrant for
the offenders.
Mr. Haymond informed His Honor
that sucli a course was not necessary, j
as the mayor had absolute power in
snch' matters. Mr. Kinsey then opined
that the Street Committee was the j
jjroper authority in the case.
Then some one looked in the book
and His Honor said: "I'll go around j
and see those people and fix things
up right away." When lie came back J
he informed a city official, who was
present when Mr. Haymond made his
request, that "They had talked very
nice to him," and he thought they
would remove it soon.
Of course the fact that the owners
-of the Jackson Street Carriage Company
supported him in the recent election
had nothing to do with his views,
inclinations and action in the matter.
Furthermore, these articles should
not he construed as antagonistic to
the administration, but on the contrary,
we are endeavoring to show the
mayor the error of his ways, and try
to persuade him to return to the
straight and narrow path of duty.

BLOW HER UP
WITH DYNAMITE
THIS STARTLING HEADLINE IS
FROM THE MORGANTOWN
POST OVER THE ARTICLE
GIVEN BELOW.
WE DO NOT LOOK FOR ANY VIOLENCE,
AND HOPE THAT THE
MATTER WILL BE SENSIBLY
SETTLED ERE LONG.
Fairmont people have become so
mad because the B. <& O. railroad company
refuses to raise the railroad
bridge below Fairmont in order that
boats may pass under it that they
threaten to blow the bridge up with
dynamite.
On a trip to Fairmont by boat the
expression "That bridge will be dynamited
yet," was heard a number of
times, but never rrom a sieaniuuai
man.
Within five minutes after leaving
the boat a man living near the
bridge saiii to the writer:
"I expect to look over there some
morning and see that bridge is missing.
blown sky high by dynamite."
The first man met near the depot remarked
:
"The people here are as mad as fury
at the railroad company, and they will
blow that bridge up unless the company
raises it."
Since that time the same expression
has been heard on a number of
occasions, and although it may he
that the people are just now giving
vent to idle threats in order to blow
off some of their surplus anger at
the company, it is not at ail improbable
that the threats' being made will
lead some weak minded individual to
the commission of a grave crime.
The bridge is beyond any question
of doubt an obstruction to navigation,
and it is rank foolishness to permit
the railroad company to defeat the object
for which the government has
spent hundreds of thousands of dollars
in building the locks and dams
between tworganlown and Fairmont.
No law-abiding citizen will encourage
the commission of a crime to
right a wrong that can be righted
very easily and speedily if the officials
do their duty, but it is almost
a foregone conclusion that some peri
son will "blow her up" if there is not
I something' clone by the proper authorities
to give the people their rights.
FLED DOWN
THE STEPS
AT THE COURT HOUSE BEFORE|
GETTING HER SENTENCE !
FROM THE "JUDGE."
Yesterday a woman slightly intoxicated
went into the office of the prosecuting
attorney and claimed she had
been cheated by the courts. She said
I that some persons had sworn lies
about her property, causing her to
lose it. A number of lawyers were
in the office and. as the woman was
I not careful in the choice of her
j words, several umuauia uuugn
| heard.
I While she was in the height of her
glory another lawyer came in. Now
I a lawyer never lets pass a chance to
j play a joke, and one of those present
I addressed the newcomer as "Judge."
and asked him to write out his order
! committing the woman to jail for
thirty days. Before the "Judge" could
get his paper ready, the woman had
[ descended the Court-house steps and
disappeared in an alley.

LONDON, May C.?The long looked I t
for investment of Port Arthur by r
land is at last thoroughly under way. I,
It is officially announced at the Japanese
and Russian capitals that 1
Japanese transports have steamed up t
along the Liao Tung Peninsula to the 1
rear of Port Arthur and landed troops c
at two points, each within easy ac- o
cess of the Russian Gibraltar. One
landing has been made at Pitzsewo, , ?
not far from the Gulf of Yin Kow, I
and another on the opposite side of a
the Peninsula at Port Adams. I
This step of the Japanese lorces,
taken in conjunction with tlie hurried e
departure of Viceroy Alexieff and the t
Grand Duke Boris front Port Arthur,
has given rise 10 a deep settled belief C
that the Russian stronghold is doom- r
ed to fall. v
Alexieff and the Grand Duke did 1;
not wish to become prisoners in Port v
Arthur, and went IX'orth to assist in d
the direction of the future movements r
of the Russian forces. The landing o
of the Japanese troops tends to con- s
firm the reports that Port Arthur harho
has been effectually blocked. k
It. is known that the Japanese gen- i
eral staff would long since have ac- i:
cepted a landing movement, had they r
been assured that the Russian fleet >i:
ih the harbor could not get, away to p
harass their movements. Now that fl
the landing is made, it would appear t:
that the Russian fleet is locked in t
and is no ionger a factor of any con- fi
sideration. d
Military experts to-day express the
conviction that ihe Japanese land p
forces are now in an excellent posi- d

THE BOARD OF TRADE DESERVES
MUCH CREDIT FOR THE KIND
OF INDUSTRIES IT HAS SUCCEEDED
IN LOCATING IN
FAIRMONT.
OUR CONCERNS ARE THE SUBSTANTIAL
KIND AND THAT
PUTS US AHEAD OF THE
BOOM TOWNS ELSEWHERE.
The Monoiigali Glass k Company's
plant now being built will be the }
largest manufacturing concern in the.
city. The plant takes up the square
between Twelfth and Thirteenth
streets and -Miner and Chamberlain
avenues. The main building will he
12r>x2i>5 fret, and will contain two
1 2 ton tanks. Work on the construction
is being rushed and the plant will
be in operation by .inly 1.
The building is being erected by
Contractor \V. ft. Hickman while the
furnace work is being done by the H.
Dixon Company, of Pittsburg.
These two contracts amount to about
S2."i.hno. ,.
The corporation is organized with
a capital- stock of SJOti.Odb. The directors
are William Moulds, President:
George DeUolt, Vice President;
li. I.. I ieint zelnian. Secretary anil
Treasurer, and -Messrs. Hamilton and
Taylor, of Pittsburg.
The construction of tlie plant is under
the supervision of President
Moulds, who has had a great deal of
; :11 ? A
Tin- products of the concern will be
childly packer's goods, for which several
large mm tracts are waiting. The
plant will employ about. 150 men,
A large til I is being made by the
Hoard of Trade in order to have the
Belt Bine extended to the plant, Hamilton
and Irwin have from 22 to 25
i earns working on the grade every
day and tlie work will he done by
Monday evening, ready for the traclc
to be laid. This grading, including the
switch will cost the Hoard of Trade
about $7,500. : ;
Our Hoard of Trade deserves great
credit for bringing such m amtfacrories
to our city. It is the result of
hard labor on their part, hut theyare
all interested in the city's welfare, and
give tip everything else for its benefit*
Everybody knows that if the factories
along the Holt. Bine were taken
I rem us, our city would !).e dead, but
when we can induce such concerns
us the sulijeci of tills sketch to come
ii means lasting prosperity. While.,
other towns nave been receiving all
kinds of factories for the purpose of
booming a lot sale, Fairmont's Board
of Trade lias been very careful and
has never taken in any doubtful cor
nomtious As a result, our prosperity
iw real ami will continue so just
as Ions as we have plants lilte tbose_
along the Belt Line.
When the Monongah Glass Com- T:?
pany's plant opens it will mean that
150 more iliiiner pails are to be
brought into use; more money and.
more men will he brought into our
city, and when the "lot sale" towns
