A BAD MOTflEfr I
Lrmentable State of Affairs Shown Up ~
in Court?Young Culprits Get
Off With Light Fines.
c
Wheeling Telegraph.]
A layman entering the office of
'Squire Fitzpatrick this morning
would have thought the genial Union
district justice had decided to forego
the .dealing out of jtistic'e and had ^
started n. general ?ioiu iiicnutu .
rhrco boys for looting-a 13. & O. rail- j ^
roa<l car in the yards was in progress
and in one corner of the office the following
articles of merchandise .were ,
piled:
One box of Arbtickles' . coffee. '
Half liox of sardines.
Half box of 'Chens'* soap.
Six cans of maple syrup. r
Half sack of rice. ?
Pile of women's . and children's
shoes.
Pile of lamp burners. -r
Box of pitil; lo/.engers. r
John. Frank and Andy Basista, of a
the corner of Twenty-seventh street s
and Alley C. were placed on trial for |
looting a freight car in the yards. c
Through their attorney, .Mian Robin- ,
son, the boys pleaded guilty. Frank
and John were fined ?10 and costs ;
each and Andy, oil account of his ten- ;
der age, was liberated. l
The youngsters were seen in the 13. \
& O. yards yesterday by Chief of the \
B .V. O deeteire force Xiek Shiffier. t
of Bellaire. He saw tlie childen enter c
a car and also noticed that some arti- j
eles of merchandise were missing from r
the consignment. Catching sight of \
the depredators he followed them to t:
their home and made the arrests. A v
call at headquarters brought Detect- r
ives Joe Humes and Oscar Kronjae- r
ger to the scene and the house "was c
searched. The search revealed the r
above mentioned articles which were g
taken to police headquarters and later t
to the 'squire's office. After the hear- t
ing of the boys they were removed c
to the B. ?& O. freight depot. v
Sad State of Affairs. 1
The hearing this morning develop- s
ed a miserable state of affairs at the
household. It seems that the mother t
; of the three boys, Mary Basista, has 1]
been encouraging the youngsters in
their depredations and yesterday r
when the officers visited her home she v
was wearing a pair of shoes that had 1
been taken from a car. r
The boys had spent the night in jail ^
and this morning were taken before T
the justice. John and. Andy were ^
| small, the former being aged 11 and J
I the latter 7. Both were in their bare ^
1
feet. Frank, aged 14, was the biggest
of the trio, and he appeared in long n
trousers.
Andy was the most truthful of the c
c
trio, and answered the questions of
the officers in a straightforward, manI
tier. As he had had no breakfast this .
morning he was rewarded with a ham ^
sandwich by the justice. '
Humane Officer Sam Darraii gave _
is
the mother of the boys a severe lecs
tore after The hearing and stated that ^
if lie heard of her abetting her chilI
dren in crime any more he would see
j that, steps were taken-to land her in ^
j some State institution. The .'squire n
also scored the woman warmly for ^
j her actions toward her children. J.

SENATORIAL CONVENTION
(Continued from 1st page).
O. P. next November.
In entering the primary contest in
iiy'ovvn county for State Senate, I
anje out on a definite platform. I
fedtred myself in favor of a revision
f the present system of taxation asessinents,~aIso
in favor of laws that 1
i'OuJtL aeomplish heter roads, and for ,
'id fn favor of higher salaries for
labile school teachers. I make the {
ame pledges to this convention. I
I so pledge myself to support all res- *
Iulions this convention may choose
o adopt. that is to say, I am at the
iddiR.g of my people. You are the j
nasters, and I shall not disobey.
This convention seems to literally
reath in harmony. 1 feel that I have (
teen exposed to and caught it, in
act, all of you brethren appear to^toe
iTectetl. Monongalia county brought
- car load of harmony. I am sure
he Eleventh district will continue to
larmonize. You delegates should all
eturn home and spread harmony
.mong our good people, and the re- j
ult will he that, all precious Repub- ,
Scan majorities will look very small
:om pared with the majority next Noember.
I have not thanked this convention
or the honor it has paid me. It is
mpossible for me to attempt to do
nil justice to such performance, ]
/ords fail me. However, I do thank ^
ou, and very much. This is my first ^
?* T "have hopn
:<I up to a greater or less extent in the j
lolitics of my home county- since I j
eached the voting, age, but altvays
vithout thought of office for myself,
intil the last year, then because I
vas urged by my friends to make the |
ace for State Senate. At first I de- ,
ntirred. but the office is a great hon
ir. gentlemen. I would rather go to .
ny own State Senate than to Con- j
:ress. The notion of office holding
ookholdof me after due consideraion,
and I plunged in, and to-day this
onvention has consummated that ]
I'hich has been my ambition of late,
can simply thank you, earnestly and
incerely thank you. ]
Prospects for a Republican victory ]
his year are bright- Democratic re
rorts to the contrary notwithstandng'.
Theodore Roosevelt will sweep f
he nation with a glorious victory.
Vest Virginia will elect a Republican ,
.egislature and a Republican will be <
eturned to the United States Senate. ]
Ve will also elect five Republicans to
he lower house of Congress again,
"he governorship contest will be adusted
next month at the State con- '
ention and a Republican governor
rill fill the chair for four years more,
o doubt about it. Republicans will
ave their little differences before the '
onventions, hut when the real fight '
oraes. you will always find them
oting the tichet straight.
I think enough of your time lias '
eeu consumed by me. I acknowledge '
hat this sort of performance is so enrely
new to me, that I have looked
jrwani 10 me urae 01 luumug mis j
peech, v.-iili weak legs and a large j
Limp in my neck. Xo doubt I have j
aid things which I should not have '
aid, and visa versa, but I hope you ,
'ill parclon me. 1 accept, the nomi- >
arion with most profound feelings of i
ratitiide. and since you have seen
t to name me as the Senatorial canidate
I sliall enter the contest with
lie most emphatic determination to
efeat the common enemy of Democacy
next November. I thank you for
