\ Tlie Marion Piano Company's opening
last evening" was one of the greatp^iest
arid most successful in the history
of this, city. Prom the time the doors
' were opened until time to go home
the room was crowded to its capatcity.
-At times as large a crowd as was on
the inside was standing at the front
awaiting a chance to enter. Dozens
-of people had to go away without getting
a chance to view the many beautiful
things which are now offered to
the public and to hear the enchanting
strains of high-class music.
v. John T. Hoffman made a decided
hit with his whistling and imitation
of bird calls. He is in a class composed
of few members.

The store is open to-day for fousi'

are on band. As told on the
souvenirs-given out last night "Every

THE MEETINGS
LAST NIGH
GOOD REPORTS COME f M FROI
THREE' DIFFERENT PARTS
OF THE COUNTY.
Very gratifying reports have com
in to-day from the Republican mee
ings held last night at Glover's Ga]
James' Fork and Barrackville. Cai
tain Kemble White was the principr
speaker at Glover's Gap, and the at
dience, although largely Democrats
gave the strictest and most respeclt't
attention. Mr. Bruce Hess, of th
Mannington Enterprise, was wit
Captain White and talked a shor
time. These gentlemen are -well in
formed on the tax, question and the":
gave the people of that Democrat!
stronghold some very whoiesomi
food for thought.
John L. Lehman and :>1. W. Ogdci
addressed a good crowd at the Jamei
Fork school house and the people art
beginning to realize that the Demo
cratic bunco game is a great joke
Good sound logic was the eharacteris
tic feature of the speaking of Lekmai
and Ogden.
E. P. Morgan and M. C. Lough vis
ited another Democratic stronghold
and talked to a crowded house of in
teresting and interested men and wo
men at Barrackville. No bettei
treatment or more courteous recep
tlon could he given speakers than the
good people of Barrackvilie /accorded
Messrs. Morgan and Lough. They
seemed eager to hear "the other side"
and conviction that they had been the
victims of rank misrepresentation
was plainly written on the faces of
those who had recently heard the
Democratic orators on the same Question.
The people of our neighboring
village are entitled to another tLink
from the Democratic one on this Question
and we wholly mistake their attitude
of last night if the Democrats
don't feel a sinking of the heart when
the election returns come In from that
farming community.

V Three or four friends of the prisoners

could raise Murray's fine if an officer

KANSAS CITY, Mo., Oct. 28.?William

while the -election of the Democratic

adoption of the policies for which

THEY DELIBERATELY PLAN T"
" INTIMIDATE REPUBLICAN

CRATIC COMMISSIONERS TO

POSSIBLE.
That the Democrats will make a
*? dow ana aenoeraie attempt to mttmill*
date Republican voters on election
e_ day Is amply evidenced by the instructions
.sent to Democratic eleca
tion ; commissioners by the Democratis
ic State committee The' Democracy
*8 is determined to go to : any extreme
in the hope of winning, and its manS,
agora have directed the commtssion?".
?rs to tise fair means or foul m ord?r
to gam advantage, -There are
y. twelve specific instructions In the
c Democratic- list, , and they turnish
h remarkable and Indispirtable tostis
moii&o^g^^2enioeratK>-scheme to
:e steal^l is possible to do
*?M managers have
ft- tU? will
^ lot Wos, e'e . in order to prevent
"the endless chain fraud which lias
p been perpetrated on the Democratic
5' party in the past." Whoever heard
" of "the endless chain fraud" and
s whore and. when was it ever perpe
trated? It is a figment, of the Demoe
cratie boss' brain, and a gratuitous
s insult to the Republican party.
' Instruction No. 5 directs the Dent;.
s ocratic representative to arrange to
make himself commissioner, receive
e the ballot from tiie'i voter and hold
1 onto it until it is finally decided
2 whether it is legal. Here is the hub
' of the whole crooked business. The
' Democrats will try to get possession
of the polls wherever they can and
run the election to suit themselves,
' They want to handle the ballots so
" that only such votes as they see fit
may reach the ballot box. It is a
desperate scheme an<d .Republicans
should see that it is not worked.
Instruction No. (i contains some
more about "the endless chain" which
is about as lucid as the original lot
of words.
Following this Conies a number of
directions plainly designed to disfranchise
ail challenged Republican voters
and to deny them the right of suffrage.
It is the evident intention of
the Democrats to make wholesale
challenges among Republicans on the
flimsiest pretexts, and then stop
them from voting. It Is part of the
game and if a Republican is denied
the right to vote after having made
the affidavit required by law he
should make the affidavit that if he
had been allowed to vote lie would 1
have voted the Republican ticket 1
and deliver the same to the chair- '
man of the Republican county com- *
mittee. The Democratic scheme 1
must be defeated. 1
Instruction No. 11 about the pre- ,c
vention of illegal voting or trickery 1
is adroitly worded, but between the
lines the Democratic commissioner
is plainly directed to stop the election
if he doesn't get bis way about t
everything. The scheme is to close t
the polls and cry "Froud" if the Demo- t
crats are not permitted to run things. a
This is an ancient game, and Repub- t
licans should be on their guard I:
against it.
At the end of these instructions
is a final word exhorting Democratic;
commissioners to stand by c
their guns w^h courage and energy t
so as not to render fruitless the "ef- forts
or the Democratic. party to redeem
the State." =
Following the instructions comes tl
fifteen directions to, Democratic challengers
which read like a civil ser- tl
