New Jersey delegation which Cleve- s
land admittedly controls, was i?re- i
vented from being instructed for i
Parker that it might, be delivered to a
Gray. Senator Smith, of that dele- c
gation, was in Wilmington recently t
arranging with the Gray men for
M-n-m'Tin, r>ver these votes at the prop- 1

er of mentioning him for Vice Presi- t
dent. Mr. Marvel was in New York I.
a few days ago, and since his return c
it is reported here that Bourke Cock- c

In his interview, published in the
"Washington Post of .May .'JO, Cleve- ^
land, while apparently predicting the ?
nomination of Parker, used these '
words: "In reiterating it at this time,
when there seems to be a lull in the 1
Parker movement, i do not intend J
to yield my original judgment, which
was that either Mr. Olney or Judge
Gray might have proved the strongest
candidate for the Democracy to
name for the contest with Mr. Roose- J
velt." This is considered by the
friends of Gray to have been "killing
with faint praise" the Parker boom
and the launching of a boom for
Gray, his real candidate. c
The fact that J udge Gray was tor d
years identified with the Pennsyl- c
vam'a Railroad as its counsel is. ac- 1
cording to those who have faith in C
rlio theory outlined, relied upon to fattract
Wall street to his support, ^
while his appointment by President 3
Roosevelt on the coal strike commission
is expected to help him with the 1
labor vote. Whether Gray's belief in s
an income tax will alienate the fi- a
nancial interests is nor. known, nor d
is it known what effect with the labor
vote his speech made here on October

makes a most creditable showing for r
the year just closed. The school is 3
thoroughly organized and is doing 1
most efficient work. The State of
West Virginia is to he congratulated *
upon the excellence of its University. tThe
school is growing bigger and Iter- e

tal of 1,250 in the University and pre- r

"The Mother of Measles/' t
The Democracy claims that the tar- s

So far no Democrat in this Con- c
gressional district has indicated that j
he would like to compete with Capt.
Dovener for his seat in Congress. We have
looked over the ground and can \
see no one who could make an in

standard-bearer, hut we can suggest
a man who would he as creditable a
candidate as the Democracy has had

pleased to say, resides in Marion j
