ONE MONTH OLD, Tie Daily West Virginian is a month old tp-day, its first issue having appeared on the 18th ultimo. While it is quite young and may look young, yet it feels already like a twoyear-old. It is indeed a robust infant, its growth has been phenomenal? something wholly unexpected by the management. The latter had assurances at the outset that the pai owould be welcomed by our citizens generally, but the generous suppo t i! has received was not looked for so early, v.'e had naturally supposed that we would have to show that we iner-' Ited support before we received it. [ Happily for us the people took it. for granted, it seems, that they were gnI Ing to get their money's worth, hence [ became patrons of the Daily at once .It is indeed gratifying to know that already it is read in most homer; of the city as well as in the best home-;. I That it is increasing in circulation so [rapidly is not due to the popularity i of the Daily entirely, but to its very efficient solicitors, who bring in names of subscribers hourly, and'hreciuentlv as many as a dozen at a time. While the circulation is as yet conhncd 'itv rfi tUf. fiiv. nevertheless we have a number of subscribers in the outlying districts. and the prospect of majiy more soon.

IHm WaminR to Wt'lister unci a Tliut Wan ClinnKCMl. 44That reminds me," said a "well known actor. "Your story ot* the manager who, when he was advised to book "The Corsiean Brothers' as a Btrong attraction, asked 'What kind of n turn can they do V" recalls to my mind an incident in the career of John Stetson, the famous Boston theatrical manager. John bad not had the advantages of a college course, but 110 one got the better of hitu in a business deal. 'John had a fellow named Webster, who used to paint a little scenery and do odd Jobs about the theater. One day a dispute arose between the s'.age director and oue of the actors as to tlie pronunciation of a word which occurred in the play. "Stetson entered while they were arguing pud. sited what the matter was. " " "Why,' said the stage director, turning over the pages of the dictionary, "I contend that this word is pronounced thus, and uiy contention is backed by Webster.' " 'Oh, pronounce the word as you please, and you, "Webster,' said Stetson, looking up into the flies, where his man of all work was busily engaged, 'you tend to your paint frames and leave questions of pronouncing words to me.' "Gus Sharp was the resident manager of the Boston house. He got along with Stetson first rate usually, but once he wns caught signing house notices with his own name. "It was like this: Stetson was walking up and down at the buck of the theater one night, and he noticed that lots of persons came late, after the curtain had been raised. "He sought out Sharp and asked him to place a notice in the lobby stating the time the curtain would be raised. Sharp accordingly had a .sign made and hung "in front of the house. It read. 'Curtain goes up at S:15 sharp.' "A couple of days after this Stetson caine along and paused in front of the sign. He seemed to grow more excited with each moment that he viewed it. Finally lie entered the business olilce in a great rage and said to Sharp: "'I want that sign changed to "Curtain goes up at S.\i.j Stetson," and don't forget that I'm manager of this house.'

Then?another most astonishing change?the Democracy is no longer lO post' MS Lilt; UUSL-UUSU1JS iJtxiisj. While the St. Louis convention may not accept the advice recently tendered it by a leading New York paper and frame its trust plank on the dis-; senr.ng opinion filed by the three Democratic justices of the Supreme Court in the famous Northern Securities case, it certainly will not go to extremes, should the Parker element have its way on the trust Question. Trusts will be condemned. Of course,; but the plank will be bare of agony and adjectives. Neither will drastic remedies he advocated and demanded. In if: role of conservatism, the Democratic party is ,to stand for "safe sane and conservative" methods. It will no more "run amuck with the trusts" than will Attorney General Knox, On the contrary, the Republican party will be pointed at as the enemy of vested interests and corporate enterprise. No longer are William J. Bryan and thp Democratic party to be held up as the foes of financial, corporate and business inteiests. but Theodore Roosevelt and the Republican party. It is the luttor who. by the legisla tion at tne last session of the Fiftyseventh Congress; their successful prosecution of the Northern Securities case, and, last but not least, the President's course in the anthracite | coal striue, have brought disaster to "legitimate" business interests, depressed tiie stock markets and prevented many people from getting rich right away by speculation. There is to be a Democratic cave of Adnllam to which 'a'll who are dissatisfied, and ail who are in debt" may repair and thence sally forth at the election to deal defeat to Republicanism and Koosevelt. Xor is this all?supposing, of course, that Judge Parker is the nominee. Sot content with merely trying to appropriate to itself the position held by the Republican party with regard to financial and business interests in 1E9C and 1900, the Democracy is to tryto reverse the positions of the respective Presidential candidates. Judge Parker is to lie the William .McKinley of this campaign, and President Roosevc-it the William J. Bryan. On one hand the calm, dignified judge, taking no part in the campaign, staying quietly at home?unless, indeed, delegations fioclt to the rural solicitudes of Esopus. Ulster county, N. Y.. and, finding the Judge, like Maud M.filer, "raking nay," feeding his Red j Polled cows or extracting the foaming cider trom ins apples, uuiiiee mm u> indulge in platitudes warranted not I to offend the eye or the ear of the most I fastidious. On the other hand Theodore Roose- | 1 volt, the "Rough Rider," tile "cowboy," ! | the "broncho buster," as well as "trust buster," taking some part in the campaign, perhaps, saying just what lie believes, and not caring much "for the result. This last picture offends the refined taste of the Parker people. Ret us have no more campaigns such as XS9G and 1900," they say. "No more of this careering over the country, talking from the rear end of special trains. Especially let us have no more campaigns like that of 1900, when Bryan and Roosevelt went about like rival windmills.

A Democratic Trick. it has ol'ten been said" of the Democratic party that it only found good in Republican leaders after they were dead: endorsed Republican policies after that party had enacted them into Icr'-s. and followed Republican methods \om four to eight years after the Repul\ieans had used them with success aild then, laid them aside lor others belter suited to changed conditions. 'to "steal the livery of heaven to serve J&e devil in" is an old trick but not always a winning one. , Before tlilfe pretty liLtle scheme can be put in com operation, however, the Parker people have got to get their man nojsrmated and make a platform in c^rtfsonance with their plans. In ail/this tliey will have to confront and master William J. Bryan and his following. William R. Hearst and his newspapers and practically the solid Democracy of the West. Even if this be accomplished, there is room for doubt as to whether they can keep Mr. Bryan quiet during the campaign upon his sacred free silver issue, or Mr. Hearst quiet on the trusts, or persuade the West into even a quasialnance wim Wall street. Then, to merely copy Republican methods and try to assume Republican positions, is not likely to attract many Republican voters. They will naturaly prefer the substance to the shadow. Nevertheless, the Parker pecple are aiming to do that which has been set forth above, should the choice of the St. Bonis convention fall upon their candidate. ? Henry Hall in iHttsburg Times. IRISH POTATO IS DOOMED TO OBLIVION A NEW VEGETABLE IS TO SUPPLANT IT AS A TABLE FAVORITE. WASHINGTON, May 19.?The good old Irish potato is doomed. A newvegetable front Uruguay which somewhat resembles it, is to supplant it. and it is only a matter of a few years when the potato will join the Doio, the Buffalo and [lie tempering of the damascus blade, in obscurity. For lack of a better name, the newvegetable is called the Uruguay potato. United States Consul Haynes at Rouen, Fiance, who has reported the discovery to the State Department says that the plant is cultivated like the common potato but its yield is enormous and that it is not affected by any known disease. "The French National Society of AgricuUure,'' writes Consul Haynes, "has adopted the new potato, and has imported a great number ot' plants from the tier cedes river in Uruguay, in order to give the new industry a start." Bill Rejected. STOCKHOLM. May 10.?The Gov ernment hill extending suffrage and ordering a distribution of seats in tiio Chamber, was rejected in the lower house to-dpy. The rumors which have been current that riots and the general strihe had been arranged over the hill prove to have been without foundation. The contested theory that pearls are due to a parasite in the oyster was advanced by a Fillippi in 1S52. Several recent observers have confirmed the view. John Weaver, 71 years old. and a life-long Democrat of Tipton. Ind., committed suicide the other day because his son voted for the Republican' candidate for mayor. WILLIAMSBURG VIRGINIA'S FORMER CAPITAL WAS VISITED BY A TORNADO WHICH DID MUCH DAMAGE. RICHMOND, Va., May 19?Williamsburg, Capital of Virginia in colo nial days, was yesterday afternoon swept from end to end by a tornado, whicb uprooted trees by the score, and ailed the streets with limbs and the wrecks of houses and fences. There was no loss of life and only one man -u??+ TV,atv.OO >v <ifi? ocuuuoij' uui t, x uvuiao Cracken, who was walking along the street was caught up and . dashed violently against a fence. The. inhabitants became awakened by a roaring noise, and they fled fron. the streets and sought refuge in their houses, many of which were partly wrecked. The roof was torn from the house of Mrs. J. H. Seymour and landed on. the Court Green, after sailing through the air for a quarter of a mile. Going to Harvard. Professor E. E.
