We must ?? and will make our paper useful to our P* patrons. The first place we will look ir carefully after the news columns and editorial page, so that the people will !> want to read all of the West Vir- tc pf0'- giriian every day. In the second s< place we will give our advertisers it every consideration with business t<: vlv 5 ' principles. We are sending out hun- w dreds of sample copies every day, tl thus reaching people who are not now it reading a daily paper. The West Vir- ir ginian will reach many country homes, t'c Already a number of people on the s: Rural Routes have asked to be put on tl our mailing list. We will have cor- a respondents from most of the leading tl centers in ine county, ana win mwdys ij. welcome newsy letters from any part u of the country. You stand by us and ti we will stand by you, and thus we can a work together for -the profit of both n parties. a Advertisers are kindly requested to p hand in copy the day before they de- ;f sire a change made. It is better for us, and insures a nicer display. n ?r= e TIME TO ECONOMIZE. a For the past three or four years ii work has been so plentiful and such a |, marked degree of success has attend- a ed almost every enterprise, that it is u not much wonder that people have be- q come extravagant and very venture- j some. A good many have almost forgot- n ten that "Into each life some rain n must fall, some days be dark and c dreary." Inspired by success in small r( things, greater plans were laid out Li and In some cases too great to be successfully accomplished. For this rea iSUUi JOiimca ^uujc. ii utru unc inna, ^ others are injured anO so the influ- ^ . ence is felt all along the line. Both large and small concerns are beginning to realize that we have been living at too rapid a gait, and are com- c mencing to call a halt and to cut down w expenses. Prices on commodities will j have to come down; the wage scale ' ! is being lowered, and all unnecessary f / expenditure is being eliminated. For - Bome six months the whole country h ItBS been checking speed a little, and e from now on mote conservatism will 11 k." . be maintained, and business condi- v tions will profit from this period of u ^5^ refip.c.f.ion and return to sanity. 11 thank several of our friends Kw-ere ldnd enough to say that i? Bftjaef for yesterday was excepjjatoood. We can not mention F - things said about us, but w jo them, nevertheless. f> WANT IT RIGHT AWAY. I It is a remarkable thing that peo- J !e put off from day to day .what they 1 -e really anxious to do. The expo- f enee of our solicitors is that people ant the paper the very day they are" ?en. Telephone calls are frequent, ving a list of names with the instrucon to be sure and send to day's pairs, as the subscribers want to begin jtting them right away. Some peoe wonder why we didn't put them on ie list and send the paper from the I art without seeing them. This is j icouragernent with a big E. FIRST WARD J at-****-*-*-***-*-* Wliy is it that the reporter for he Times in the First ward persists i assuming the roll of; a "chronic eker" against every improvement ade in his ward? He says in Sat day evening's issue that "the city *dinance is being violated on ac tint of a veranda being buiit on the out of the brick building on Water reel, owned by Mail arid Harr." If 3 had taken the trouble to in vest iat.e, as the "fake fire" reported cri le bridge also should have been, he ~~ oulu have found that the parties 11 nplicated as violators ot the law in n lis instance, are not only building Tteen. feet in the air, over their own a round, bur are serving the city a ^ ^uble benefaction thereby. First, ^ ley are giving to the use of the 0 ublic about three feet of additional 13 aved walk gratis, in front of their roperty, and second, they are furr- s hing free and without obstruction, ? protection to pedestrians from the V( eat and storm when needed. It was ? o doubt so decided by the mayor a tid his advisers, called upon by the l' jrinal complaint to investigate the latter. In consequence thereof the * rmrnvomont r?r? uMlh rmhlic and U ilicial approval, and we should glad- ~ welcome more of them. Calvin McCloy has nearly com letecl his new two-story house on s [organtown avenue in the Morrow ? ldition. This will add another fan* ^ y to the call for the street pavement c > .Vfifple Grove cemetery. We take space to add in this con- h action. but not by way of repetition. ll Kit the projectors of the contentpla ^ id street paving of Morgan town 11 venue were out. on the line yester- *ay reviewing the work to be done. P ad maturing plans of operation. We c re glad to note that interest in the a tatter is still alive, and that those > whom it has been committed are s ?ady to act as soon as they see their ay clear to do so. With the neces- ^ try amount so nearly secured, the c eople clamoring for the long needed ,J nprovement. and those having sub- a jribed being anxious that the work c e done or they be released, the time n > begin is now, before a reaction of mtiment by reason of delay, renders T impossible of realization for years > come. Others have signified their l illingness to assist when they see r :e work begin, and are asstired of t s early conpletion. Let the super- c: itendent be selected, or call issued n >r men and teams at a fair compen- e ition. during the present lull along te line of other business activities. v nd enough will respond, both from 1 te city and country around who will e profited thereby, to push the work c > immediate completion. The condi- e ons are favorable, the people ready, G - . ...... r? tid the season propitious. Ail that is o\v needed is a little more pluck 11 nd perseverance; not less interest, at a little more money; fewer prom ;es, and more of fulfillment; less 'ords of doubt and liaulting fear, but ? lore energy and will put forth in arnest execution. Then the small mount yet needed will be forth com I g. tlie work accomplished, the best iterests of our city be conserved, and V II will rejoice together over the tri- v mph achieved for the public good, n >ur present virtue is in action, not allying but doing. ^ Eckles anil Simons, the hustling IN lerchants on Water street, are just ow increasing their stock by a full T ar of fine flour.

DIVORCE QUESTION MAY BE RECONSIDERED BY THE PRESBYTERIAN GENERAL ASSEMBLY? MUCH DEPENDS UPON PRESIDENT PATTON. BUFFALO, X. v., May 25.?At the Presbyterian General Assembly today most probably an effort will be made to reconsider its action on marriage and divorce. If the matter is re considered an amendment recoxnmen dation will be submitted which will be limited to a proposition of anj member of a church which is repre seated in the inter-church conference That would leave out the Roman Catholic Church, which does recognize divorce, and it is believed, would thuc do away with much of the opposition which the original recommendation endangered. Advocates of the compromise ree ommendation are hoping they may he able to get President Patton. of tlie Princeton. Theological Seminary, tc favor the new proposition. Pie oppos ed the original recommendation, saving it went beyond the authority e-i the Scriptures. They feel they would be pretty certain of success if the2 could get President Patton to make a break for them to-day. A fight developed yesterday over the proposition to merge the Board of Aic for Colleges and Academies and the College Endowment Commission intc one body to be known as the College Board. The plan involves abandon ing the giving of aid to academies here and transfer of the headquarters ol the Board from Chicago to New York The Westerners are fighting the prop osition and plain words were spokei: that are apt to rankle in some breasts Dr. Dickey, of Indianapolis, is leading the fight against the report, and hi: words received more applause thar any other speech or act during the as semblv. After heated arguments the report was put over until Friday after noon. The Endowment Commission has not raised any money so far. ana it made a separate report favoring merging with the College Board. HAWKINS TRIAL.
