REMINISCENT AGAIN.
We do not believe that anybody in
West Virginia thinks Henry G. Davis
can carry the State, but there is a
feeling among Democrats at some
points outside the State that he can
do so. It is argued by those at a
distance that many West Virginia Republicans
will support him as a matter
of State pride. We know of no Republicans
who talk of supporting him,
and we know of no reason why any
Republican should support him. There
are reasons though, why he should
think kindly toward Republicans, but
none to suggest that they should reciprocate
such feeling. They owe him
nothing, but to them he is largely indebted
for his political prominence?
for his seat in the United States Senate.
Mr. Davis is not popular among
West Virginia Democrats and never
was. Before and up to- the war of
the COs he was a Whig. This accounts
for his being in favor of a protective
tariff, which was Whig doctrine. During
the war he was a Union man, and
went to the Legislature at Wheeling,
then the State Capital, as such. A
Union man then meant a Republican.

Democrats in West Virginia are
' not falling over themselves to get on v
the State ticket, even if this is a c
Democratic year.
' Now That President Roosevelt lias
Ir made his speech of acceptance, he has I
9kf nothing to bother him in preparing his t
?|gi inattgural address. '
Irak A poet wants to know "How Long 1
H^kDoes Hope Last?" Well, with a Dem- 1
HEiyJcrat it lasts from convention day un- c
MH .a* the night-of the election. '
Avo good indications of the result ?
fcciivr.'iber are that Judge Parker s
MBP-nnounced that he will not re- J
judgeship and there has been J
ftnameil as likely to succeed
Hne of the justices in the New
Bnri of Appeals after the C
|||ction.
He was a mem oer 01 me nuuse ui
Delegates. He tried to succeed himself
at the next election (the Legislature
held annual sessions then instead
of biennial sessions as now), but
failed?a better man?a better Republican?ran
against liim. This made
him mad, and he commenced coquetting
with Democracy. The latter then
very weak, many being disfranchised
for participating in the Rebellion, encouraged
him to run for State Senator,
and by aid of a personal following
among Republicans he was elected.
Then he began setting his triggers
for the United tSates Senate. Most
Democrats were opposed to him as
such candidate, preferring an ex-Confederate
or a man who had sympathized
with the late Confederacy. The Republican
legislators, on account of his
record as a Union man. gave him their
support, and tins, witn me neip or a
few Democrats, elected him. By and
by he came up for re-election and was
successful, as he again received the
support of the Republican members.
While the latter elected him both
times, yet they never got any thanks
for it. On the contrary, however, they
got their reputations smirched, as the
Democrats who opposed Davis charged
that he bought all of his support?that
he paid $1,000 a head for it.
"Elected as he was, it was naturally
supposed that he would take a conservative
course in the Senate, but instead
he was as bitter a partisan as
the most rabid Southerner. It didn't
pay to vote for him then, and it
wouldn't pay .to vote for him in November.
It never pays to vote for
your political opponents at any time.
By doing so you weaken and demoralize
your party, which is the best and
greatest party that exists or ever did ;
exist. Davis will run along with his
ticket in this State?will get no more
votes than any other Democrat?and
that he will be buried under a Republican
majority of at least 30,000, is as
certain to be the result as it is that
the election will be held on the Sth
lay of next November.
The New York Herald, which is
supporting Parker, has made a poll of
:he New York Stock Exchange, finding
321 members who declared for
Roosevelt and 10S who are for Parker.

friends of the Rough Rider.

AS TO ELECTION MACHINERY.
Our neighbor seems to be getting
'great deal of comfort out of a garble!
editorial -which It took from the Wes
Virginian some weeks ago. A grea
many people in this vicinity, who ar
recent comers, do not realize wha
the Republicans had to contend wit
in times past, and so for their benefii
and at the request of one of our Va:
ued subscribers, we reproduce an ed
torial which appeared in the Fairmon
Index, the foster mother of the Times
in the fall of 1S92. The County Core
missioner referred to was Mr. B. I
Fleming, one of our most highly es
teemed citizens:
The Recount.
The County Court is now engage
in the recount of the votes cast fo
the office of County Commissionei
The Court has gone over the return
and has ascertained the result fo
every officer on the ticket excep
Commissioner, and the result is state
in our tabulated statement found i:
another column. We have tried t
make this table correct, and it wil
be found useful for future reference
The result on County Commissione
adding the vote -Mr. Fleming receiveon
both the Republican and Prohib:
tion ticket gives him a majority o
ten on the face of the returns
THIS MAJORITY IS SO SMALI
THAT IT CAN EASILY BE OVER
COME BY A RECOUNT. The wor]
of counting of the votes is very slow
and it will require several days t<
complete it. It is understood that Air
T. A. Fleming, Vho was defeated O]
the face of the returns for the offio
of Justice of the Peace of this dis
trict, will demand a recount of th<
votes for that office. There has beer
no demand for any recount for an;
other office, and doubtless there wil
be none, for the majorities are s<
large that they could not be affectet
by a recount unless some gross irreg
ularity was found and nothing of tha
sort is charged and none exists. Th<
recount for commissioner will tak<
at least all of this week.?Fairmon
Index.
THE BOMB THROWER
STORY OF THE ASSASSINATION
OF M. PLEHVE, THE RUSSIAN
MINISTER OF THE INTERIOR,
TOLD BY WITNESS.
LONDON, July 2S.-rThe St. Peters
burg correspondent of Renter Tele
gram company gives the following
version of tiie assassination of M
Plehve, the Russian minister of the
interior:
M. Plehve was on his way tc
Petershoff about 10 o'clock to make
a report to the Emperor. When his
carriage was passing in front of the
Hotel De Varsevic, which is close to
the St. Petersburg terminus of the
Warsaw railway, a man suddenly
rushed out of the restaurant which is
attached to the hotel, and hurled a
bomb at the minister's carriage. The
explosion was terrific. The minister
and his coachman were killed on the
spot. The carriage and the horses
which were drawing it were shattered
into atoms.
The-body of M. Plehve was terriblymutilated.
His left arm and both
legs were torn off. The bomb thrower,
despite the confusion, was immediately
surrounded and arrested.
Another report has it that two persons
were arrested. This report
states that M. Plehve was approaching
the station in a carriage when a
motor car drove up with two persons
in it. Of those, one was an official
wiLlJi nit,' uniiui m nit; iinin&it;i ui
ways and communications and the
other wore morning dress. As the
motor passed INI. Plehve's carriage, one
of the occupants threw a bomb in
front of the horses. It exploded and
several bystanders were injured, but
none were killed as at first supposed.

n Mr. Hubbard at th'is afternoon's
? meeting corrected a prevailing impres11
sion that the removal of the direct
State school tax would reduce the
r funds available for public school purposes
in some of the poor counties.
Such is not the case. If the revenue
f of the State continues equal in amount
' to the present revenue, every county
- under the Parkersburg plan will receive
as much if not more than at
present.
The new law provides that the free
0 school shall receive two-sevenths of all
' license privilege and franchise taxes
1 collected by the State, which is the
e same percentage now received from
the State taxes used for school pur3
poses.
1 The Republican members of the
r Legislature are again in conference
1 considering the other bills proposed
3 by the Parkersburg committee.
' if appearances count 'for anything.
" the Republican party in this State are
* certainly "getting together" in a way
3 that is apt to carry consternation to
- their political enemies who, by the
t way, have been prophesying general
demoralization in the ranks of the
grand old party. The party presents
) to-day the appearance of a pair of
L small brothers who, having made up
after a slight mix-up, stand unitedly
and courageously bidding defiance to
1 The entire universe.
The conference of the Republican
members of the Legislature Tuesday
night was the embodiment of harmony.
The members seemed to vie with each
other in a desire to accomplish useful
and speedy legislation for the benefit
of the people of the State through the
; instrumentality of the political party
they represent. The speeches of the
evening were short, earnest and vigorous,
an index of the zeal and sincerity
of the speakers making them.
As the legislators faced Speaker
May on that eventful evening of the
conference, they presented a splendid
1 appearance. A general survey of the
assemblage carried with it the impression
of unusual mental vigor. Strong
I fhamptpr and rup-<rerl honestv were the
types of many countenances, intellectuality
in frequent instances lighted
up the faces of the men composing
this very interesting group.
J. Davis Billmyer, sheriff of Jefferson
county. West Virginia, leaves
Charleston to-day for lloundsville for
the purpose of conveying George W.
Williams, a negro, to Charles Town,
West Virginia, where he is to be tried
next Tuesday for the assault made on
.Miss Laura Knode, which occurred in
Jefferson county on June 27. about one
and one-half miles east of Harper's
Ferry.
Owing to the state of feeling in Jefferson
county, this negro will undoubtedly
be lynched on his arrival at
Charles Town unless prevented by extraordinary
precautionary measures.
In view of this state of affairs, Governor
White will furnish Sheriff Billntyer
and prisoner with a military escort
of about ninety soldiers composed
of troops from the State militia.

Billmyer and his prisoner at Tunnelton,
who will leave the penitentiary
on Thursday of this week.
From this point the escort will accompany
the sheriff to Charles Town
and return. The trial of the negro
will not last more than half a day,
and death will undoubtedly be the penalty.
Billmyer, who is a native of
Jefferson county and lives at Shepherdstown,
says that lie "wishes the
durned nigger had been hung long
ago," hut that, he will defend the majesty
of the law. Billmyer is a plucky
fellow and will undoubtedly do what
he says.
Go After Constable Next.
Several weeks ago a man agreed to
pay the bill of a hoarder at a local
restaurant. The bill was not paid on
time and a warrant was sent to Wood
county, where the man was at the time
working. A few days ago the man
came to this city on matrimonial business.
When a local constable hvent
to him he showed a receipt, that he
had received from a Wood county
constable when he paid the bill. It
was supposed that the bill had not

GAMES
ARE ON THE BOARDS FOR THE
LOCAL FANS?CUMBERLAND
TEAM COMING.
The strong Cumberland team will
be here to meet the locals Sunday aud
Monday.
This is the same team that Fairmont
broke even with on the occasion
of their invasion of the east
some weeks ago and the contests
should be corkers, inasmuch as the
two clubs are about evenly matched.
To-morrow the locals will meet
Morgantown at the latter place, and
while slightly crippled, anticipate no
trouble in taking the game. As Edwards
is suffering with a badly damaged
hand, Captain Bero will do back
Slop stunts, wnue r isuer will pia,y
third and Vasbinder middle, with
Blumming pitching.
Manager Slack, first mate of the
Manley,.has sent his lieutenant June
Arnett, to Adena, Ohio, with instructions
to bring Catcher Heath back,
dead or alive. Heath is the man who
caught for Wheeling early in the season
and sustained a broken finger,
necessitating his retirement for
awhile. He promised to report here
over a week ago but did not show up,
and as he is badly needed now, Arnett
was sent after him.
Fisher, the outfielder, who was ofered
a trial by Wheeling, will not report
to Manager Price until next season.
Edwards will leave for his home in
Cadiz, Ohio, to-night with the best
wishes of his team mates.
TO KEEP PEACE
THE RESIDENTS OF ONE OF OUR
SUBURBS WERE NEARLY ALL
BEFORE JUSTICE BENNINGTON
TO-DAY.
Justice Bennington s office was the
center of attraction this forenoon.
The case of the State against Will
Slaughter, Minnie Fortney, Teen Ellis,
Jack Campbell and Flo Campbell
came up this morning. These people
live in that suburb of this city, situated
near the Hutchinson-Barns brick
yards, usually called "Shagtown."
This morning that little town was
truly a deserted village for all its inhabitants
gathered at the Court-house.
E. C. McBee swore out a warrant for
the above mentioned five to make
them keep the peace. There was no
evidence against the two Campbells
and they were dismissed. The others
were tried. They were defended by
Attorneys T. N. Parks and E. F. Morgan.
while Attorney H. C. Grant looked
after the State's side of the affair.
The people who gathered to hear the
evidence are of the opinion that "Shagtown"
is not a very desirable place to
live. From the evidence it seems that
the jteople fight, shoot, etc., whenever
they so desire, and it was Jiroven that
one woman had had only three fights
since she came there six months ago.
About twenty-five witnesses were examined.
Tiio evidence was all taken this
morning and this afternoon the lawyers
let the hot air escape. Teen Ellis
and Will Slaughter were the only
ones bound to keep the peace.
Some one will get the hundred' dollars
in gold. It is worth guessing
for. x.
All of the latest telegraphic and
local news will be found in the West
