CLAIM THAT HE OVERSTEPPED ljic authority?INFORMER ALSO TO SUFFER?WHERE IS THE $50? i A man was in the city last niglit a few hours who came over from Grafton. Yesterday in that city he was talking with the druggist who was in the little fish scrape at Valley Falls a few weeks ago. According to his tale there were seven men fishing at the Falls that day, six from Grafton and the other living near the Falls. The six ha<l had unusual good luck, and after eating all the fish they could for supper, had plenty to take home, and were at the train when a Fairmont ofllcer, assisted by a deputized man, attempted to arrest them. Two of t he men escaped, but a druggist, two doctors and a business man of Grafton, and the man living near the Falls were arrested and held until the train pulled out. The man who lived near had just dug his bait and was geting ready to fish. On this account, and perhaps because he had no money, he was allowed to go. The other men were too busy to come to F*airmont, so they asked the officer what amount would satisfy the State. The officer, after carefully weighing the matter, answered ?50. Checks were given, and the whole party boarded a freight for Grafton, where the money was collected the next tlay. The violators looked up the law in the next few days and found that I lie officer had overstepped his authority. The officer came back to Fairmont and examined the law with the same result. Now the officer is in it, and does not know liow to get out. The Grafton men will not likely go to the trouble to send here for the officer if he keeps straight in the future, but they have declared that vengeance is theirs and, if the officer shows himself in that city, lie will be apprehended in a very few minutes. They have also declared their intention to take a "bat" at the man who telephoned to the officer that theyi were fishing.

There seems I ro be no blame placed upon the man I j r^fr.Hiir ihpv are mighty .sore at the latter. Until last evening the writer was unable to find out the names of the fishermen, but now he knows, and also knows some things about the affair that the party of the first part may not likt to have made public, but the West Virginian likes to tell the truth. The books in the justice's office have been looked over by the writer and no record of the arrests could be found. We believe in the enforcement of the laws, but we want them administered in the right way and a proper record made of what is done. We are ignorant as to the whereabouts j of the $50. Boost For Stone. j The friends of the Hon. Andrew J. Stone of Fairmont, will, we under j stand, present his name to tne wneeding convention as one of the electors at large on the Republican ticket, i Mr. Stone is one of the "Old Guard" of the State and is in every vay worthy of the honor. For forty-five years his face has been a familiar one in Republican conventions, and he has ever been a tireless worker in the causes of his chosen party. He .has never asked for nor held any important public office. It would therefore be a handsome compliment and a manifestly proper evidence of appreciation of the services of one who has always had on the harness of political welfare when the battles were on. to gratify his present ambition at I this time. He is one of the best 'known men In the State and it is be! lieved that it is only necessary to I mention the fact, of his present am! bition to at once enlist sufficient interest in his candidacy to insure him I the nomination as one of four electors ' to hp nominated.?Grafton Sentinel.

June 24.?In his address to the graduates at the thirtysixth annual commencement of Cornell University yesterday, President Schurman delivered a fierce denunciation of unmarried college men. "I have no patience," said President Schurman. "for the college graduates who deliberately elect bachelordom. In this country, where there is no place for idlers, the primary duty of every young man is to earn a living, but this is the lowest expectation that can be had of you. "It is equally your duty to provide for a wife and fafaiily. "The college man who deliberately leads a single life, whose social circle is the club and whose religion is a refined and fastidious epicurianism is not a man. It would not be worth while maintaining college and univer! sities for the production of froth like j that." ! Goina to Oyster Bay. WASHINGTON*.

OROET THE PLAGE: itore, Fairmont. W. Va. SCHOOL BOARD WILL ENDEAVOR TO RELIEVE THE CROWDED CONDITION OF THE ROOMS BY RENTING BUILDING IN FIFTH ? WARD. M. J. Lantz and O. S. IiIcKinney, members of the Board of Education, were out looking over the school situation in the Fifth ward this morning. The Board will not be able to build the new building this year, as stated before in this paper, but an attempt will be made to relieve the crowded condition in that ward. The Board, at its next meeting, will consider the question of renting the old Christian church on Short avenue. This building can be divided into two rooms, each seating about 35 pupils. Although this way of doing has its drawbacks, it will relieve the crowded condition to a certain extent. Af-ter the next session of the Legislature. the Board will likely have power to raise money to have the necessary buildings constructed.
