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.

A Matter of Selection. In our excellent telegraphic service we set pages of netvs which we do not use. We aim to select the best and important for our readers, and we hope they enjoy the latest events V ~ from all parts oi the country. * We received a call this morning h. from His Honor, Judge Warren JVIil2? ler, of the State Supreme Court, and : ' who resides in Jackson county. Judge Miller was appointed to his present position when the law creating a fifth judge of our highest court went il into effect, and his successor is 10 be elected at the next election. He is a very popular gentleman, an able jurist, Sk and will in all probability he nomi' nated to succeed himself. He went from here to Clarksburg. ?1: ,. The Republicans of Illinois have '-.been trying to nominate a State ticket since last Friday. It is an ugly deadlock, as there is more or less wrangevidence. They seem to be inviting defeat. But there are others. |?,V'-West Virginia Itepubiicans are not B* p far behind them.

DORR HANDED OUT SOME INTERESTING INFORMATION ON THE GUBERNATORIAL SITUATION. Ex-Ccdhgressman Charles P. Dorr, of Webster Springs, was in the city a few hours today. .Mr. Dorr was an active candidate for me governorship some time ago. and wiil likely be the dark horse at the convention. In speaking of Dawson's siiitposed j lead. Mr. Dorr stated that this was largely exaggerated. He said several county delegations who have been instructed for Dawson would not vote that way when the test comes. Dawsen, in his opinion, has surrounded himself with a hunch of hoboes and political outcasts, whose support is no. substantial. Mr. Dorr left for his homo on 72 this morning. HEARST WON IN CALIFORNIA AFTER HEAVY SCRAPPING AND EXCITING SCENES. SANTA CRUZ, Cal., May IS.?After an entire day spent in wrangling, and after attacks 011 the floor of the convention by half a dozen of the most prominent delegates of the State, the Democratic convention yesterday evening by a vote of 3(J5 to 34G, voted to send a delegation to St. Louis instructed for Wm. R. Hearst. The day was consumed in attempting to effect permanent organizations, drafting resolutions, oratory or clearing the decks for a vote. The platform declares that the continuance of the present rate of tariff tax encourages the formation of trusts and it pleases tne Democratic party to a careful revision of existing tariffs. It advocates shorter hours for laboring men and endorses the Panama Canal but criticizes methods in securing the right of way as destructive of the integrity of a confederated republic. RACE HATRED AND RELIGIOUS INTOLERANCE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE HORRIBLE MURDER OF AN AMERICAN MISSIONARY. DETAILED REPORT OF THE MURDER OF DR. LABAREE HAS REACHED THE STATE DEPARTMENT AT WASHINGTON. "WASHINGTON, May IS.?The sto ry in detail of the murder of the American missionary. Dr. Benjamin W. Labaree, near Mount Arrarat, is given in a lengthy report to the State Department from R. Richmond Pearson, XT. S. Minister at Trehan, Persia. The particulars are described by Dr. Cochran. a citizen of Urunnia, Persia, in a letter to the Minister which says in part: "There seems to be little doubt that this murder was committed by Sayid Kaffar and three other men from the Dasht Kurds. "One of the Kurds, who was of the attacking party, said that they followed our party as soon as it was known that they were foreigners and where they were going. "On Wednesday. March 9. four of the Kurds attacked Mr. Kabaree and his servant, shooting down the servant from behind and carrying Mr, 1-abaree for a farsag or more and killing him- there. The Sayid out his month from ear to ear and cut his hand while the Kurd Sadii. stabbed him twice in the chest." Commenting on the affair, Minister Pearson says: "A large expedition under command of an energetic general is scouring the mountains in search of the gang who are all known. "The atrocity or the murder removed any doubt as to its motive and I eliminate entirely the suggestion in my first cable that the motive was apparently robbery. The stealing of the horses and other property was a moreincident: the inspiration of the deed was religious and race hatred without the slightest personal animosity. Jeremiah Wouldn't Take It. In last evening's issue mention was made of an official getting so much out of the cane man for issuing the license. That was not the popular City Clerv Englo. He did not get a cent out of it.

GShroi'.t, of the Watch tower profession, and Elder A. A. Btmner, of the Church ot Christ. Proposition: "The Holy Scriptures of both Old and New Testaments teach there is no conscious existence of the spirit of a man (sometimes called the soul) from the death of the body till the resurrection." Affirniauve, S. G. Shrout; negative, A. A. Bunner. The debate lasted four sessions of two hours each. The last thirty minutes of each any Bible reader would positively have felt sorry for the soul sleeper, especially the last night. If ever there was a doctrine Scripturally annihilated, that was. Although Mr. Shrout had Russell by heart, and held up his cause as well as any of them can. Brother Bunner never failed to take the same Scripture he took and showed conclusively that it meant to the contrary, and then brought in other Scripture and proved his interpretation correct. Had Shrout been let run at large, he no doubt would have had quite a following, for he was going about from house to house selling books and teaching doctrine he ought not. The fellow happened to press on the wrong trigger. There are a few disciples about Gladesville who are not to be carried about with every wind of doctrine: and when one comes that way and brings not the doctrine of the apostles and prophets?Jesus Christ the chief corner-stone?they only have to send over to Fairmont for Elder Bunner. who is set for the defense of the Gospel; and if Bunner can't defend the cause against anything that comes or goes. I know not where to find one. There is a great deal in an instrument for doing fine work, and Brother Bunner undoubtedly used the sword of the Spirit effectively. I can't imagine that Fe^.x ffelt anyworse v.-nen he heard Paul reason for righteousness, temperance and judgment to come loan did Shrout. Oh, that men could understand that we are ?ving in the last dispensation of God's grace; and if we fail to accept it, there is no more sacrifice for sin; for while the unclean spirit is in the man, he ought to have it cleansed by nlifvin n- the tr-nth rli rollG-V) Ttie cniril unto the unfeigned love of the brethren. And if not, when the unclean spirit is gone out of the man, he walking through waterless places, seeking rest and finding none. Poor deluded soul! That doesn't iooic much like the spirit was unconscious. Judge ye! Awake, thou that sleepeth. The same spirit that convicts convinces of righteousness and of a judgment to come, so that they might prepare in this dispensation of the Spirit's reign and not he idling away their time waiting for another chance.

IN MAY, 1789 : WAS HELD THE FIRST GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH OF THE UNITED STATES. BUFFALO. May IS.?On the third Thursday of May, 17S9. was held the First General Assembly of the Pres- ; byterian church of the United States. This usage thus established has been formulated in a standing order by which the General Assembly' meets invariably on the third Thursday of each year. The llCth General Assembly will convene to-morrow morning promptly at 11 o'clock in this city and continue to hold sessions for ten days. By to-morrow morning from 1200 to 1400 visitors will be here. They will include the commissioners, the delegates to the woman's meeting, the commissioners and the wives of the commissioners. Several of the highest of the churches in this country are here this morning to take part in the missionary conference. The Presbyterian church. North, is ; the largest Presbyterian body in the world. Although Scotland is the re- j puted home of Presbyterianism, there i is no body in that country so large as the American body. In this country there are a dozen other Presbyterian bodies, but no one of them has J more than 250.000 members, less than < one-fourth of the membership of the Presbyterian church. North. Last year the General Assembly reported thirty-two synods, 239 Presbyteries, 1.067,477 members and money amounting to $17,561,377, of which $485,561 was given to objects controlled by the Boards of the church. The church is one of the oldest.iii the country, dating back before the 1 middle of the seventeenth century. 1 The Chief Propagators of its growth ' were the Scotch-Irish who settled for ' the most part East of the Allegheny mountains, where the chief strength ' of Presbyterianism is to be found to- 1 day. The denomination has. however, ' had a very wide dissemination and 1 there is no part of the country except ' New England, where the body is not ' very influential. New England was 5 given up to the Congregationalists as they formerly adhered as closely to ( the Westminster standards of doc- 1 trine as the Presbyterians elsewhere, i In recent years, the body has grown 1 in that region because of the incoming : of Presbyterians from Canada and the Maritime provinces. In all the great centers of population. Presbyterianism has flourished and there is not a city jn the land of first importance except Boston, where the ministers and churches are not known the country over. Among the churches are the Fifth Avenue and Brick of New York, the Tabernacle, of Brooklyn; the Bethany. of Philadelphia; the New York I Avenue and Church of Covenant, of Washington, the Brick Church of Rochester, and many others of the grade of the Westminster and Lafayette churches of this city.

ROOSEVELT. COLUMBUS, O., May IS.?One discordant note in the harmony of the ' Republican gathering' was struck last c light by General C. M. Spitzer, of s' Toledo, when he said that President P Roosevelt should not be nominated. General Spitzer is a delegate-at-Iarge from Tusca county. He is a leading tanker, and a heavy contributor to the r Republican campaign fund. 1 Referring to the factional strife in 1 Ohio, General Spitzer said: "We C have something to think about that is E more important and that is the nomi- _ nation of President Roosevelt. I tell you that if he is chosen for another term as the candidate of the Republican party, he will be defeated, and it matters little who the Democrats put up. I base my prediction on what I learr. from all parts of the country. We have correspondents in all sections. and word from them bears me out in my position. The President has placed himself in such a position that no one feels safe with him." Turko-Sulgarian Agreement. "VTENXA, May IS-?Munir Pasha, in an interview published in. Die Ziet to-day denies that his arrival at Sofia was postponed because of difficulties encountered in the arranging of a' = Purko-Bulgarian agreement. The am- r bassador attached great importance s to the agreement in question. He 1 says it supports the idea of a cus- 11 toms union of all the Balkan States. v From Sofia, Munir goes direct to a Pohoreila, Hungary, where Prince a Ferdinand, of Bulgaria, is at_ present. a He will there arrange for a visit of c the prince to Constantinople.
