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. BEsfeih Already a number of people on the Rural Routes have asked to be put on | our mailing list. We will have cort; .\ respondents 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 ggj we will stand by you, and thus we can work together for the profit of both parties. Advertisers are kindly requested to ijy hand in copy the day before they de; : aire a change made. It is better for us, and insures a nicer display. DR. BOONE'S LECTURE. f.: ' ? S;: Dr. Boone is a thinker. It does us V good to draw away from the busy J ' scramble for an hour and hear a man who studies problems and conditions v and knows how to apply-the product ;; of his experience. Dr. Boone empha(%' sized the fact that it is worth while Se? - to get an. education, not alone for p8p;j,. the money value but also for the bet i ' . l-vi IUCUL i.ut; ixiciu ?*uu lilt: em icuiu^ of his life. A man may be rich and mMm. yet be very poor; he may be poor, c, I yet in some respects, rich. Happy is Sji the man who is truly rich in possesV slons and real worth. "A man is worth to others what he can do and to himself what he can enjoy." As a whole, the lecture was stimulating and inspiringtu It is Indeed worth while to sit at the feet of such a broad and liberal man as Dr. Boone. | ? fQhji?''' pSi^ce-election to the House of Delegates from Wood county. Mr. Moats was r-S nephew- '.of the late ex-Governor Francis H. Pierpont, of this city, and ||iyoae of the leading young men of ' 1ir the work on the CARRIED BANNER OF ANARCHISTS SCATHING WORDS USED BY JUDGE JACKSON IN ADDRESSING HANCOCK MINERS. ALU WERE FOUND GUILTY OF CONTEMPT OF COURT BUT WERE RELEASED. PARKERSBURG, \V. Va., June 1.? Judge John J. Jackson, in the United States Court yesterday found seven striking miners from the Marauette mims in Hancock county, guilty of contempt of court for violating an injunction prohibiting interference with the non-union men who -were at work. The evidence showed that they had thrown stones at men at work, had picketed the property and had marched under a peculiar banner to the Court-house. Judge Jackson said: "The marching of a body of men together under a particular banner which is known as the banner of anarchists, and which you people have adopted as the emblem of your organization, can be for no other purpose than intimidation." He said strikers had no right to intimidate men who wanted to work and no right to picket property or watch trains to see who is going to work. He released the men on their promise not to violate the injunction again. THE SLATE FIXED. The Democrats hereabouts?those fnrmprlv known as ring or clique?but who will be known as such no more forever, are trying to keep teh matter a secret, but it has leaked i out that they have agreed upon the following named persons as their candidates for the county offices: t For Sheriff?Charles E. Manley. For Prosecuting Attorney?Clem L. Shaver. For House of Delegates?O. S. McKinney, Tusca Morris,' C. A. Snodgrass. The candidates for assessor have not yet been definitely decided upon, but the above slate will go through as it is unless the unterrifled of the rural districts come in and smash it, as they did two years ago. It will be remembered that the latter had things all their own way at that time, having even turned down the ring's choice for chairman of the convention?Attorney Scott C. Lowe. AT SPRINGFIELD. A resolution was introduced after the sixty-second ballot, at the" Illinois convention, to the effect that after the sixty-third roll call, the succeeding votes be taken by secret ballot. The resolution was referred to the Committee on PpsnlutinnK. The siv. ty-third ballot showed no marked changes. The Times' correspondent seems to be a friend of Attorney E. F. Morgan, a gentleman in all respects and deserving of.friends, but if it is intended to make Mr. Morgan popular with the Republicans of this county by trying to besmirch the character of one of the regular nominees of the party, it is certainly plain to the most obtuse that the aforesaid correspondent is doing him unintentional, and, it is to be feared, permanent injury. Willie's Campaign is Very Costly. SAN FRANCISCO, Cal.. June 1.?
