We must and will make our paper useful to our $5^- patrons. The first place we will look carefully after the news columns and editorial page, so that the people will want to read all of the West Virginian every day. In the second feSfep*ace we will give our advertisers every consideration with business principles. We are sending out hundreds of sample copies every day, thus reaching people who are not now reading a daily paper. The West Virginian will reach many country homes. ISK? 'Already a number of people on the Rural Routes have asked to be put on our mailing list. We will have correspondents from most of the leading centers in the county, and will always welcome newsy letters from any part of the country. You stand by us and we will stand by you, and thus we can y work together for the profit of both parties. Advertisers are kindly requested to feanH in /*nn\/ rfav hpfnrA thev Hp sire a change made. It is better for us, and insures a nicer display. It will be interesting in a year or two when Governor White is editing a morning newspaper in Parkersburg (it is said that is his ambition) to read "what the State Journal will then have to say about him. Unquestionably the early campaign days of 1900 will be recalled. That the Baltimore anci Ohio Railroad company operates engines which are not lacking in speed was > ; proved last night when a special train was run from Faiimont. "W. Va., to Laugh 1 in junction, carrying Dr. J. Thomas, of Chicago, who missed the regular train leavii?g Fairmont yesterday. Dr. Thomas received a message calling him to Chicago at once and when he discovered that he had missed the regular train he ordered a special train to bring him to Pittsburg in time to leave on tV/the regular Chicago train. When cf-V r~t.. ? ii, . I i : _ .... k?kj v iiitz w <xz> leauiieu i?? was uiscovered: that , a speed of a mile per minute was necessary to catch the agij^cGhlcago train. Word was sent along B^^K^?^So;^ve\tIie track cleared and the train was started. The average speed was one ifcile per minute and at times the. train was', operated in less than a miie a minute. The train y/v reached Laughlin junction . just in l&v time to make connection, with the CI ic-igo train.?Tesldrcay's t>ittsl.nrg KAISER STILL REGARDS JAPAN , AS THE YELLOW PERIL?STORY OF MARQUIS ITO'3 PICTURE. I LONDON* May 13.?A dispatch from Berlin this morning: reporting The daily visits of the Russian Ambassador to the Kaiser, and the consequent comment on these visits as bearing: on The war. has aroused some lively discusslori :'n London. An incident wh ch occurred during the last visit of Mnrquis I to. the famous Japanese statesman. to London, is recalled in this con neetiqn. Ito was shown a eopv of the Kaiser's allegorical picture represent ' ,-?r Viirnr-in <rn-/in'i' 1 r\ ward an eastern conflict ^from the .-rnokv of which emerges a p'crsro of Buddha. The picture is entitled: "Europe Defend Our Sacred Places." After look*rut at the picture one of ito's companions asked: "I suppose iie means China?" "No." replied Ito. "He means Japan. In the Kaiser's mind Japan constitutes the Yellow Peril." As German intervention in the Eastern imbroglio would automatically involve England and France, English statesmen believe the Kaiser should, for the sake of tranquility, make a clear statement of his position in the matter. HITTSBOOM i FOR VICE PRESIDENT SEEMS TO j BE GAINING ? PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT WELCOMES THE SUGGESTION OF HIS NOMINATION. WASHINGTON, D. C., May 13.?The Vice-Presidential boom of Representative Hitt, of Illinois, seems to be growing iapidly. It is understood that | President Ronseve'r is more anxious 1 about the result in Illinois than in any other State in the West, and hehas therefore welcomed the suggestion of .Mr. Hitt's nomination with a good deal of enthusiasm. It now seems to be settled that Speaker Cannon will evade the net of those who would like to nominate hirn for second place. If he were to consent to run, the President and his advisers believe that the Republican ticket would sweep the Sucker State in spite of the bitter factional fight being waged in the ranks of the party. Not being sure of "Unco Joe* the administration would be pleased to have .Mr. Hitt nominated. As chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee in the House. Mr. Hitt has for many years played a prominent part in the diplomatic activities of the government. He is in perfect sympathy with the policy of President Roosevelt, and as he said in an interview yesterday, he was perfectly willing to make the race. His friends know where he' stands, and can, therefore, come .out in The open and carry on a vigorous campaign in his behalf. The Republican representatives still in town will meet and indorse Mr. Hitt's candidacy Mr. Teter's friends claim that hg has the gubernatorial nomination by at least sixty majority. Mr. Dawson's friends smile at this and say they have no figures to give our. but add thm their man will win in a walk: The editor of the -Morgantown Post may only be pretending, but it would seem from the tone of his paper that he hasn't a very great admiration forour esteemed and popular feliow townsman, the Hon. Charles W. Sv islier. But we don't blame him much. In fact we don't blame him a little bit, for if we had been tanned by Senator Swisher as he once upon a time tanned the Post man, our feelings would be very much like those of the latter. Fairmont's New Daily. We congratulate the Republicans of Fairmont and Marion county u :on the establishment of the Daily West Virginian, a staunch Republican paper, under the editorial management of the old editor.

James Thompson was convicted last evening of murder in the first degree for killing Leander Gilkerson, in this city, on the night of the Republican convention two months ago. The jury recommended mercy. His sentence which will be for life, has not yet been imposed. Thompson, while being taken to the county jail, laughed as he talked of the verdict and said: "It is better than I expected, but I din't know h r v the verdict would go." Gilkerson was one of a number who have been murdered as the result of political fights in this end of the State. Thompson is the first of the murderers to have a trial. NARROW ESCAPE FROM AN EXPLOSION WHICH WOULD HAVE WIPED OUT FOUR BLOCKS?BIG FiRE AT ARMOUR SOAP WORKS. CHICAGO, Alav 13.?Fire which destroyed a four story building: of the Armour Soap Works Thursday even ing. damaged a score of adjoining structures, and for a time threatened to explode the largest gas tank in Chi- . cago, owned by the Universal Gas Company, and containing five million cubic feet of gas. Thirty engines were called out, and the total 'property loss is estimated at $200,000. The crew of hose company 2S narrowly escaped death beneath the South wall of the Armour building, which collapsed without an instant's warning. Utmost precautions was taken by the firemen, and after some | delay the gas was diverted into other tanks. Chief Mrisham stated that had h the tank exploded all persons and ! buildings within four blocks would ! have been wiped out. The Roosevelt Majority. Springfield (Mass.) Urion.

Up to Tuesday evening the record run of the sinuous river branch of ^ the Baltimore and Ohio railroad, be- it tween Connellsville and -McKeesport. was credited alone to the late William ? Thornley. who ran the Duquesne lim- ^ ited over the distance of 43 miles in 41! minutes a couple of years ago. Engineer William Bradley, with his hand at on the throttle of engine No. 739, at Gj the head of a special, made the same record Tuesday evening between the two points, and in addition made the record run over the division between Connellsville and Latighiin Junction. Dr. Murphy, of Chicago, had been called to Fairmont to attend Mrs. Metzer, mother of William Metzer, of the Fairmont Coal Company, who was suffering with symptoms of appendicitis. The physician was detained after train No. 51 had left Fairmont Tuesday afternoon. He chartered a special train from Fairmont to Connellsville, ? hoping to make connection with train No. 5 for Chicago, his presence being necessary in that city yesterday at 11 o'clock for an important operation. ii was lounu uy eeriei ai o u jJV-i 111 ieii 11- g ent W. C. 1 .oree. of this city, that the special would necessitate the delay ^ of No. 5, to avoid which he ordered p the train tt> proceed to this city and a special to conduct Dr. Murphy from -g Connellsville to Pittsburg. Accordingly the train left Connellsville at g 0:53 o'clock, about 45 minutes after g Xo. 5 had left. Engineer Bradley put p the little engine to the test for the p clear track run and made a mile a g minute up to the water tanks at the g southerly side of McKeesport. From g that point to Batighiin Junction the g run was necessarily slower because of ? the terminals, but the special arri-ved at the junction at S:04. just one minute before No. 5 was due to leave the Water street station. Dr. Mur- ai phy boarded the Chicago limited No. w 5 at the junction. Engineer Bradley C1 ' 1 ' was congratulated by the officials. The special consisted of, the engine and UI three cars. Conductor Dudley Pickles was in charge of the train. s< The Russian Church. le New York Tribune.
