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

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. |

SCATHING WORDS USED BY
JUDGE JACKSON IN ADDRESSING
ALU WERE FOUND GUILTY OF
CONTEMPT OF COURT BUT
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
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:
For Sheriff?Charles E. Manley.
For Prosecuting Attorney?Clem L.
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.
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.

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.

leaders from different parts of the

State convention. Indications now
are that Wm. J. Bryan's friends will
