It ^ill 1-e seen that we beat him to

In speaking to the Wheeling intelligencer
the Hon. Charles Biirdett
Hart sgys that* "the curtain has. just
begun to rise on the industrial development
of West Virginia."

the accounts of bank failures.
?.vj." suicides, and railroads going into the
? hands of receivers, and many other
?y.v. direful things so common during the
. reign of Grover, are not distressing
the country,
v.- - Why
does the West Virginian oppose
the nomination of both Teter
and Dawson??Fairmont Times.
. We., could give divers reasons, but
||i' - one is sufllcient. Both cannot be
elected. The State constitution proBf..,
hibits such a thing, the framers of that
'-V - Instrument having wisely provided
that two men shall not serve as gov:
i ernor at the same time." .
B? ' 4
Since the Times has designated one
person on the West Virginian as "the
whole push," he win tatce i n is uccasion
to say that he is surrounded by a
sober, industrious and capable corps
of young newspaper men, all of whom
can talk, spell and write the King's
th-S-}b-.i v.-English. They are showing a pro
flciency thai is indeed gratifying to
the .management, and must be to the
patrons of the paper. |
J- The West Virginian has recently
i.. taken occasion to hurl some large
bouquets at Mr. Dayton. This is its
i ' privilege, of course. But we rise to
mm inquire When its editor changed his
* mind about- Mr. Dayton.?Fairmont
: b - The West Virginian knows men
i that it thinks more of than it does of
i Mr. Dayton, and a good many that it
thinks less of, but when it comes to
sending a representative to Congress
" from til6 Second district he is far
better for the position than any Democrat
we know or ever did know.
. . The Democratic Times wants to
rS know, in fact seems anxious to know.
' where the West Virginian stands on
.' the all-absorbing tax question. As
f this paper wants to be obliging, and
likes to be obliging when the thing
;' " -asked for is so easily granted, it will
respectfully refer the Times to yes iv&sivi.v
..fbrHflv's iKsiip of tlip West Vireinian.
: - wherein its position is defined on the
question at issue as plainly as it
knows.how to put it. It is true that
C . . the Times was anticipated a little in
this matter, but it is to be hoped'that
r~: it will.not permit itself to be worried
about it. But of course it won't be.
as it has weightier things on its
mind?for instance, how it is going
to land Marion county and the State
in the Democratic column this year.
Congressman Hughes, of Huntingv
ton, expresses to the Register repre,i*
sentative at Washington the fear that
the Staie is lost to the Republicans i
if either Teter or Dawson is nonti- j
nated for the governorship, and he I
j: suggests the withdrawal of both and j
the nomination of ex-Governor Atkinson.?Wheeling
We are glad that Congressman
t Hughes has the courage to say what
Rv he thinks and believes. And we are
Rj. \ sorry that hundreds of other Republic
licans, both leaders and laymen, who
gp.w. think the same way, do not see the
importance of expressing their
thoughts at this juncture. The suggestion
that ex-Governor Atkinson
gi' should be made the nominee for govK?
ernor 'strikes us as a good one. He
Kg is one of many who would he highly
acceptable as a candidate. The exgovernor
is a successful campaigner,
f: and as a vote-getter no one can approach
him. It will be remembered
Sfe-' v that when he was elected governor in
fc-j . 1896 he ran several hundred votes
,:. v ahead of the popular and lamented
William McKinley.

"We won't allow ourselves to get
vain, but we really do cherish the"
many expressions of appreciation on
the general make-up, the intetesting
write-up, the amount of well selected
reading matter and the complete
home and foreign news service in the
West Virginian's columns day after
day. Our baseball and Normal commencement
presentations have been
coming in for a good share of comment.
Our advance " programs on the
Normal's exercises have been highly '
appreciated. Our personal column is I
fast becoming one of cur most pop- |
ular features and th.: best of all is ]
the large number of subscribers being
added to our list d;ti 1 v. ' We have )
two successful and weil known men ;
at work for full tirr e and while we i
have said very little abort jr. our i
subscriptioh list is enlarging in a j
most gratifying marine.*. The West
Virginian is a very vigorous reality
and it is fast gaining a constituency
of which any paper feci proud.
These are cjays of wool-sawing with
the new force, and every one connected
with the paper knows exact. v wTmi
it takes to win. Kee?? your. eye on
the West Virginian.
The New York World. iMunocrat
contained the follow * 1 ; editorial yesterday
under the^ caption?"II* not
Parker. Who?"
It is practically cert*tin ti'^t local
political alliances u ' 1T result in the
selection of a delegation from Illinois
not friendly to Jucl-*t. Parker's can
didacv, and it is nor expected that the |
Mississippi coavemo will instruct 1
in favor of the New York jurist. Superficially.
the Parker candidacy will
probably, be no stfo.c.ycv at the end
of the week than it is ai present.
When it first became apparent that
the convention would be controlled
by the safe and saro Democrats, the
Parker campaign received a. sudden
check. Jt was ShveAdlv surmise J
that he had been u-el as a buffer in
the fight against radicalism and. having
served his n??#poso v. ouhL be
LUrOWll ilSIUf Uj iur= \
managers. All Mtempis 10 bring
forth a rival candidate, however,
have failed. Nooody else hps been
suggested upon whom the uninsrructed
delegates would be more lively to
unite. The field has been scanned
for dark horses by a million pairs of
eyes, and not a hoofprint has been
found by the Democratic biologists.
The question stand" r..s it siood two
months ago: 'If Not Parker. Who?*
The delegates are bound to ask it
when the convention meets."
The nominating convention for
this, the Eleventh Senatorial District
of West Virginia, composed of the
cr-unries of Monongalia. Marion and
Taylor, will meet at Fairmont, on
Tuesday, June 21st, 1904, at twothirty
o'clock in the afternoon. Dei
egates may leave this city on the
noon train and arrive in Fairmont in
plenty of time to participate in the
convention. There will be but one
candidate before the convention, Col.
J. H. MeDermott who is already as
good as nominated, having received
the indorsement of his own county?
Monongalia?in the recent primary
election by a large majority. This
fact, however, should not deter delegates
from attending the convention
and all Republicans who are not delegates
and who can do so should attend
the gathering, as it promises to
be a veritable love-feast and family
gathering of the Grand Old Party of
the three counties.?Grafton Sentinel.
It is obvious that the Times doesn't
like the West Virginian's cartoons.
Well, we are sorry, vet at the same
time we like them and so do our hundreds
of friends and patrons.

the young daughter of Mai

bitten on her foot by a copper snake i
last Saturday afternoon. Dr. Fitch {
being called, hastened to respond, |
and upon his arrival found the foot to ;
be already badly swollen and the girl j
suffering greatly. He administered
anti-dotes to counteract the effects of
the poison of the bite, and then dress- I
ed the wound, leaving instructions for !
further treatment. Although the bite i
was serioi\s, and some time had j
elapsed before medical aid could be |
given, yet it is not believed that it ;
'will result fatally.

necessary for these new accessions, j

will receive due notice.

low the fore-top. He suspects that t
some one. out of malice, had enter- 2
ed the stable in his absence and slash- i
ed it with a knife. Others believe, j
however, from the nature of the
wound, that it omy struck a nail c
while fighting dies in the stable, caus- (
ing the long side-wise cut. He took t
the horse to a doctor, who stitched
up the wound, which, it is not thought
probable, will prove serious, beyond
being sore for a few days. <
