Fairmont, W. Vs.,
May loth. 1901.
Mr. Charles L. Barnes, Collector of
the City of Fairmont, Fairmont.
W. Va.:
Dear Sir:?The undersigned, who
are all of the members of the Finance
Committee of the City of Fairmont, respectfully
invite your immediate consideration
of the following matters
pertaining to the finances of said city,
1. As you are aware, work has been
resumed upon the new city reservoir
and filter plant, on Log Cabin Hill,
and tinder the contract by tbe city
with the persons who are erecting and
constructing said plant a very large ;
sum of money, probably S25.OOC.CO.
will be required to be paid upon said
contract, in addition to the payments
already made thereon, and if this work
is carried on with the speed which,
every one now hopes and believes it :
will be, this sum will become payable
before any money i9 likely to be received
on the taxes for the year '
1904. iv e are advised that there is
in your hands for collection taxes for
the year 1903. and possibly for other :
years, aggregating something like $10,- 1
100.00; and further that you have un- 1
collected water rents aggregating 1
about $1,500.00, the two accounts
amounting to $11,000.00 or $12,000.00.
SVe have not been advised as to*what
proportion, if any. of these various accounts
should be classed as actually
lelinquent, yet it Is surprising that
tuch a large percentage of the taxes?
approximately about 25 per cent.? '
should be withheld from Die city, and
;he government denied the use of that
noney which by right and by law it is '
entitled to have, and which It must 1
pave in order to enable it to fulfill its !
pbligations. It occurs to us that all
patriotic and law-abiding citizens are
equally interested with the officials of
lie city in having all of the contracts 5
hat are intended to promote the wol- :
are of the community, faithfully and 1
lonestly carried out, and one way to
lo that is for every citizen and taxjayer
to jpromptly contribute his just '
iroportion of the burdens of taxation. 6
rhose of our people who have failed '
o thus pay are making it more diffi- '
:ult for the city authorities to proper- '
y discharge their pftblic duties, and
where this failure to pay is due to an 1
ntent.ion upon the part of the taxpayer
to embarrass the administration,
or to evade his just proportion of
the public debt, the officers are, in .
pur humble opinion, justified in having .
~ecour.se to the remedies provided by
aw for the enforced collection of
taxes and levies. >
2. We therefoi e respectfully call ,
four attention to the power that is .
2onierreci upon you, as city coilector,
n the charter of Lie city, as contained
in section 29, of chapter 11 of the
\cts of the Legislature of 1S99, which
said section, in part, reads as folows:
"It shall be tue duty of the city
collector to collect city taxes, license,
evies. assessments, wharfage, water
rents, and such other city claims as
ire placed in his hands for collection
)v Lie council; in case the same are
lot paid on or before the thirty-first
lay of October, after they are placed
11 his hands for collection, he shall
collect interest at the rate of one-half
101* centum per month-until the same
ire paid, and may distrain and sell
hereof in like manner as the sheriff
nay distrain and sell for said taxes,
md he shall have, in all respects, the
;amt power as the sheriff to enforce
:he payment and collection thereof. '
\nd we do further call your attention
:o the ordinances relating to the water
system of the city, in which it is provided
that upon a failure to pay water
ents within twenty (20> days after
i me becomes due, the city authoriies
are required to disconnect the delinquent
consumer from the water sysem.
In conclusion, we certainly trust
hat sufficient funds will be forthcomng
when needed to discharge the
pressing obligations of the city, and
n order to effect this result, the com
littee feels that it must have the
?arnest co-operation and assistauce of
ill of the city officials, yourself among
xie number.
Respectfully yours,
, Finance Committee.
Notice to Taxpayers. ?
All persons owing city rax must setle
the same before the 1st day of
tune, 1.90%, or I shad proceed to colect
the same according to law. And ?
ill persons owing back water rents nust
settle the same by ihe 1st flay ^
it June, 1004, or wat^r will be turned c
)fT until paid in full,

It lias Ions been known to ethnologists
that anions runiiy primitive
tribes and races the practice of kissing
was unknown. Anions the Lapps
and the Maoris, rubbing of noses occupied
its place. The average native of
Japan, a country which promises to
take so important a place in making
future history, still knows nothing of
the practice of kissins.
The practice of lip to lip salutation
was especially characteristic of English
social life in Tudor times. Its universal
employment'was one of the
things noticed by Erasmus during his
sojourn in England, and is thus commented
on in one of his "Epistolae:"
"Here are girls with angels' faces, so
kind and obliging that you would prefer
them to all your muses. Besides
there is a custom here never to be
sufficiently commended. Whenover
you come you are received with a kiss
by all; when you take your leave you
are dismissed with kisses: you return,
kisses are repeated. Tliey come to
visit you, kisses again: they leave you.
you kiss them all round. Should they
meet you anywhere, kisses in abundance:
in fine, wherever you move,
there is nothing hut kisses."

President Roosevelt had a talk wltli
Elmer C. Dover, secretary of the National
Republican committee, about the
preliminary arrangements for the Chicago
convention and other matters relating
to the convention and the campaign.
Mr. Dover will go to Chicago
next Tuesday, and on June 1 will open
the headquarters of the committee at
the Auditorium Hotel. Preliminary
arrangements are being made for the
campaign by Secretary Dover. With
one exception the orators who are to
3econd the nomination of President
Roosevelt In the convention have not
been chosen yet but they probably
will be within a week. Four seconding
speeches probably will be delivered.

Mr. Shayne was one of the

NEW YORK. May 21.?Nicolas Tesla
and Prof. M. I. Pupin, of Columbia
University, are said to be jointly
working on an iaventiop which, if
successful, will go far toward putting
an end forever to warfare.
They are, it is said, planning nothing
short of a wireless percussion for
setting off explosives from a distance.
This Information leaked out at the
banquet of the Slavic Alliance at Delmonico's
last Thursday night, at
which Prof. Pupin and Mr. Tesla
were guests. Neither of them, however,
would confirm or deny the report.
Anthony S. Ambrose, president of
the Slavic Society of America, said he
had hoard indirectly,of the plan of the
two inventors.
"I do know this," said Mr. Ambrose,
"that Mr. Tesla at the time of
the war.with Spain began experimenting
on just such a wireless percussion
affair, but abandoned ft. I believe,
when the war ended. It is not at all
unlikely that he has taken it up again;
and that Prof. Pupin, who invented a
wireless telephone, (is co-operating I
with him."

CAMERON*. \Y. Va., May 21.?A
$50,000 damage suit is the.latest thing
to startle this town anil add to the
complication ot* troubles which beset
the new pottery company.
It is ascertained that the following
are in brief the facts alleged for the
plainti If:
Mr. Stricklin has been the secretary
and general manager of the pottery
company and it is his ckarge that recently
die defendants signed :l paper
whic-h tvas circulated freely throughout
the community and. the county,
reflecting not only upon his management
of the pottery hut impugning his
integrity and honesty. He brought
the suit and when it comes up lor
trial?if it reaches that point?it promises
to he the biggest thing or the
kind the county lias ever seen.
The statements of the defendants
have not yet been ascertained, but it
is certain they will fight the case to
die end. The trial cannot possibly occur-until
next September.
