While the West Virginian has advocated
no particular person, but "any
good and well qualified Republican for
the gubernatorial nomination other
than either Mr. Dawson or Mr. Teter.
believing with many party men that
it would be the best thing to do on account
of the bad feeling existing between
the Dawson and Teter followers,
yet it may be that one or the other
of the two candidates named will
be our standard-bearer. In that event
we are pleased to say that no matter
which one it may be his Republicanism
will not and cannot be questioned.
Both have always been active
and loyal party men. While Mr. Daw-Vson
has been manager of the State organization
for several years as chairman
of the executive committee. Mr.
.Teter has been long at the head of
the party machinery in the Second
district, having conducted the most of
Dayton's campaigns. As party workers
and managers we have nq better
and need no better, but while this is
true we shall insist on a "dark horse"
candidate until our State convention
meets. If it fail to make the kind of
! nomination we desire we will not
murmur, but be ready to give the
ticket, regardless of how it may be
headed, our hearty and enthusiastic
support. We have no fears as to the
State going Democratic, but believe
that almost any Republican would
make victory easier titan either Mr.
Dawson or .Mr. Teter.
Our Democratic townsman, P. M.
Hoge, will probably be Judge John' W.
Mason's competitor. We have heard
hira mentioned in this connection and
he appears to be the choice of the
younger element of his party which
controlled nominations in the last
campaign. Pat was Judge Mason's
competitor four years ago. As hegave
the latter no trouble at that time
it is not to be supposed that ho will
do so .at the coming election. We are
in favor of his candidacy, for we see
no other honor in sight for him, and
he deserves something from his party,
as he is the strongest Democrat
and the most devoted one 10 either
Bryanism or Clevelandism, no matter
k which, we know of in ihe county.

well, and adds that we failed in each
case. Now, it depends upon who the
Hi 3udge is whether we failed or not.
The Times' saying so doesn't make it
i ^-?so by "right smart." In fact the
(Times' opinion on any subject isn't
(valued at anything by us and but
'% little by anybody else.
|5 i The Times says that the bungling
t/ manner in which it is printed is due
Kfe-tp the inexperience and incompetency
its linotype operators. This is
gjjgfil ' and exceedingly unkind to its
|ptea>e force, and will' be so re_

Merchants "generally concede that
(he day of "get what you can" for
goods Is over, so far as good business
principles are concerned. A prominent
Fairmont merchant said not long
rgo that sales were much more easily
and quickly made by the one price
system than under the antitiuated
country way of "throwing o!T" so
much to make a sale. He said it
saved a great deal of lying and required
fewer clerks, for not half so
much time was taken in making sales.
If there is any store-keeper whom merchants
detest it Is the fellow who pre- j
-tends to do a fair business but cuts j
other way. Of course people like to
deal with a man of that sort, but ir
does the mercantile business a great
injury. Can merchants afford to encourage
such principles along any
line? We know the ones who are
being skinned will not, and we think
The beneficiaries can hardly afford to.
There are not. just five of us, hut we
"mean business/' just the same.
On account of the scarcity of advertising.
a thing that we hope will not
always be noticeable, we have so far
been obliged to use some plate matter
?n the publication of the Daily West
"V-rginian. This has not been used
for economy's sake at any time, but
to avoid working our linotype operators
too hard, as with the matter in
question they frequently have to work
f:om 12 ro 10 hours?longer than they
should work and longer than they desire
to work. Our neighbor, the
mes, nas had occasion to use the
same kirn-] of matter .in the past and
nay have to resort to it again. Notwithstanding
this fact, it has been
sneering at it in our columns for some
clays, but we think the average reader
will agree with us that it would be
far more readable and freer from
typographical blunders and bad English
if it would straightway return to
the use of plate matter.
The Times doesn't like it because
we spoke of the bungling job it made
of the Cornwell interview in its issue
of last Saturday. If it had kept
its nose out of our business we would
probably not have referred to said
interview. It says a gentleman engaged
in the newspaper business never
alludes to unfortunate mistakes
like it made. To which we may reply
that if a gentleman conducted
the Times we might never have occasion
to refer to it except in a genteel
manner. Gentleman! Why, there
isn't a man in Fairmont who could
afford to trade reputations with him.
If any man should he would be badly
It is now in order to call him State

We received a very pleasant call
this morning from Mr. Charles S.
Brilles, of Wheeling. He was accompanied
to our office by our townsman.
Mr. Charles A. Reed. Mr. Brilles is a
candidate for State Superintendent of
Free Schools and is out on an electioneering
tour. He has been connected
with the schools of Wheeling
for the past twelve years and stands
well among the educators of the
The work of nominating the next
President and Vice President of this
great country is now progressing
with the same wisdom and regularity
that have characterized all preceding
Republican National conventions.
Our Senatorial convention to-day in
point of numbers looked very much
like a Congressional convention.
Col. McDermott was accompanied
here to-day by at least 100 sturdy
Monongalia Republicans.
Roosevelt and Fairbanks! We
couldn't wish for a better ticket.
Geo. \V. Richardson began grading
at the wharf landing yesterday, preparatory
to cobbling it with stone.
The dirt is being used to level up the
irregularities of Water street even
with the sidewalk recently built,
which greatly adds to both the appearance
and utility of the street. Stone
is also being delivered on the ground
ready for the cobbling, which will bo
oi.t in at once, thus completing another
much needed improvement.
It is reported on good authority
that the B. and 0. has at last let the
contract for building their switch
from the P., M. and P. bridge to the
steel nlant on the Industrial addition
grounds. Work is expected to begin
on it during the present week. This

York, Stewart, of Illinois and Hawley, j
of Texas. The old machine has been
shattered. Roosevelt is the leader of
the Republicans.
His picture hangs in ImBIic places
rial looks forth from thousands of
nudges; his name figures in the convi-rsation
of groups ol men and the
r];eers of crowds; delegations have
organized for him and clubs are
marching tor him. Roosevelt, feared
and hated by a selfish clique of socalled
leaders, has been proved to
have established a place in the hearts
-,f the people. He is the inspiration
of the convention and the hope of the
:ank and file of the party.
The Fairbanks Boom.
Fairbanks was responsible for the
liveliest sort of an ovation. The
walking secret from the "Wabash, escorted
by the Indian delegation sailed
down the side aisle just a few minutes
before the call for order. The
result was that as a convention prelude
the delegates stood on the chairs
waving hats and cheering to beat the
band. The preliminaries had been so
mild that this enthusiastic opening
was hailed as a good omen.
It was worth taking a long car ride
to see the smile that illumined uncle
Joe Cannon's face when the cheers
went up for Fairbanks. He was
standing in the Illinois section and
remarked to Senator Hopkins that
the Fairbanks' whoops would be the
best cheer he had heard in a year.
Uncle Joe had been given quite an
ovation when he entered. There was
so much demonstration that it was
disquieting to a mail who did not
want to be Vice-President. As a result
of it Cannon did not ascend to
the stage but took a seat with the Illinois
The rousing welcome given Fairhanks
quieted Uncle Joe's fears. It
made plain enough the fact that the
facts had gotten into The Fairbanks
CHICAGO. June 21.?if there was
doubt among the Fairbanks followers
for the Vice-Presidency last night's
developments set it at rest. When
Pennsylvania and New York fell in
line the other boomlets didn't have
a leg left to srand on. Governor Odeil.
Senator Depew and Congressman
Sherman, of the New York delegation,
the Cannon boomers, had the ground
removed from under their feet. They
went against Uncle Joe's -wishes,
and found themselves up against a
game that was a little too strong for
them. Before they knew it Senator
Piatt, Senator Payne and others, had
arraigned a majority of the New
York delegation against them. They
were urged to it by Speaker Cannon,
whose expressions on the subject of
the Vice-Presidency were forceful
and picturesque.
When Congressman Wadsworih, of
New York, announced tli.it Xew York
would instruct for Fairbanks, Pennsylvania
rapidly fell in line. Before
the curfew had rung last night, Florida,
Hawaii, Washington. Tennessee.
Texas. North and South Dakota, Wyoming,
Maryland, Alabama and other
States were in lino and the question
of who should be Roosevelt's running
mate was solved. President Roosevelt
kept his hands out of the fight;
but Cornelius N. Bliss, of New York,
treasurer of the National committee,
who represents tne President, was
consul ted,.and acquiesced the announced
program. There will be no fight
in the convention, although there may
lie supplementary vote lor a number
of other voters who have enthusiastic
friends refuse to permit the immediate
withdrawal of their names. The rebellion
against the selection, of Geo.
B. Cortelyou, Secretary of Commerce
and Labor, for the National chairman,
has almost entirely subsided, nor is
there longer any talk of a compromise
looking either "to Mr. Cortelyou*s selection
and subsequent resignation to
accept the Postmaster Generalship or
looking to the selection of Mr. Cortelyou
as chairman of the convention
committee and the choice of someone
else to preside over the National committee
itself. Word has been received
That Mr. Cortelyou has been detained
at New York on account of the
General Slocum disaster, but he is expected
here soon.
May Close To-morrow Night.
Tentative efforts were made by the
New York delegation this morning to
rush the program of the convention
and complete all business by to-morrow
night. Many of the delegates believe
that, with the ticket settled in
advance and with 'no situations to
clear up. it is useless to drag the con
venuon over iwo ciays. tjovernor j '
Odell said: "I understand that a proposition
is on foot to clear up the busi- :
ness of the convention by to-morrow '
night, but what will be done I cannot
say." i
The question of early adjournment
tests entirely within the discretion of
the convention Chairman Payne said
this morning.
Senator Foraker says he would not <
be stirprised if the business of the ]
convention was concluded by Wednes- i
day night. <
Ex-Governor Black, of New York, (
who will place Roosevelt in nomina- t
tion is in favor of an early adjourn- 1
me'nt. "Everyone knows this is a cut t
and dried game. The ticket is Roose
velt and Fairbanks. There is no rea
son why everything could not be fir
ished by to-morrow night and i
would he the best thing to put th
convention through with a snap,
said Mr. Black.
Bill Flinn Also Sore.
"Bill" Flinn, the Pittsburg "boss,
and Israel Durham, the Philadelphia
boss, 'were talking things over at th
Auditorium Hotel.
"Is," said Bill, "has the Cortelyo'
wave swept you off your feet?"
"Not for a minute," was the reply
"I heard the rumbling of the approach
ir-g disturbance and I took my order'
iiite a little man." ;
"You and I have been, called bosses,'
letorted the gentleman from the Smc
I y City -.vith just a shade of sadness
nut, is. we are a coupie 01 rue laii*
st amateurs That boss in Wash
iimron is a boss of .1 new variety, an<
. e hack numbers v.ill have to stan<
i round and do as we are told."
There have been a few cutting re
marks about the lack of enthusiasn
in the convention. Ex-Senator AVol
cott, of Colorado, compressed then
into one observation. "It looks like ;
convention of undertakers," he said.
