i FROM -THE REPUBLICAN STATE
LEADERS. j*
To the Voters of West Virginia:
* The undersigned desire earnestly
? to call the attention of the people
' of this State to the fact that the prinJ
cfpal aim of the e-uemies of "tax
* reform" "is to defeat Hon. \V. M. O.
| Dawson, the Republican nominee for
' governor. His defeat will be inter!
pfeted as a fatal defeat of the roovement
for a better and juster system
. oftaocation. To accomplish Mr. Dowson's
defeat the Democratic managers
. are industriously seeking to convey
the impression that Mr. Dawson has
. "shifted his ground. that, he lias
changed his position on the taxation
- question since his nomination, and
' has sold out to the corporations."
spreading throughout the State, by
> printed matter and by hired agents,
\ the most shameful misrepresentations
, of the new tax laws enacted by the
f late special session of the Leglsla,
ture.
I The undersigned earnestly urge
. upon every taxpayer of the State who
I favors reformation of our laws concerning
taxation to uphold these laws :
i and to rally to the support of Mr. '
Dawson. Do not be deceived. These
i laws are in the interest of the whole 1
body of the people. :
Mr. Dawson, by his long service in <
public life, is eminently fitted to discharge
the duties of the governor's
office. He is honest, sincere, well 1
equipped, conservative and just. He 1
will treat every citizen and interest s
justly. His defeat would be a crush- '
ing blow to the cause of honest and 1
just taxation.

For the Season. c
d
NEW BEDFORD, Mass., Nov.' 1.?
Whaling agents in this city have re- b
ceived the report of (lie whaling fleet tl
in private dispatches from San Fran- n
Cisco. The total catch is given as is
forty-nine bowh'eads and eight right s
whales. This year's supply of whale- a
bone will be about one hundred and 11
twelve thousand pounds, but as some c<
of this has been shipped to this city c
and already sold, the stock on hand a.
when the fleet arrives from the north R
will be about eighty thousand pounds,. c<
The last sales of the hone were made c<
at about $5 a pound.
The steamer Jeannetle, of San Fran- P1
Cisco, is high hook of the fleet, with a:
ten whales, while the steamer William oi
Baylies, of -this city, ranks second,
with -seven whales. The steamers T'
Alexander, Narwhal and Bowhead 1
have also made paying cruises. n<
The steamer Belvidore lost her pro- w
peller early in tfie season and had to Cl

She was the only large vessel in the w
Arctic without steam power. tl

Not a Barrel of Flour or a Pound of
Ore Was Received at the Port
During the Month of May.
'Bylvut a glance at tlio books of the
.local offices of the customs depart- .
rnont in'the Federal building one cam ,
see the havoc wrought to the- commercial
interest's by the general tie-up '
of lake traffic because of the recent '
troubles existlng'Between tho lake car- <
Tiers and their captains, says the Buf- .
falo "Times."
Besides the loss of thousands of dollars
in money represented la the salaries
of the idle captains, mates, deckhands,
pursers and boatmen in general
and the attending losses to the
transportation companies because of
the stagnation of the general freight |
market. Buffalo loses several points
in her standing in the commercial !
world for till? months of May, June
and July. I
Whether or not the business for 1
the rest of the season of navigation ^
will increase at a ratio large enough
to offset this decided slump remains to
be seen. In the opinion of the experienced
marine men and the men well
acquainted with the shipping Interests
of the city, the general slump felt directly
because of the strike will continue
for the remainder of the season (
and the navigation term for 1904 will *
go down in the record as one of the =
worst in several years.
AH during the month of May and
for several days during enrly June ,
:he harbors all along the lakes were I
stagnant and the great freight ships '
ay at their moorings. Thousands of
nen were idle about the docks, and
every day thousands of dollars were
reing thrown away until finally the _
settlement came and with it the great J
-ush to make up tne losses In time
mil money.
Buffalo as wen as the other- lake
jorts has suffered rom the results of
his groat strike and tie up, as will
- from the figures taken from C
he books at the customs house. The ?
nonths of May, June and part of July
>f this year, as compared with the =
:orresponding months of last year, ?
ihow a tremendous falling off. In the ?
ihipments -if some cereals there is
l slight increase, but these are due
nore to an unusually largo crop rathsr
than a pronounced activity on the
akes.
According- to the figures for Maiy,
903, there was 6,9S5,170 bushels of
vbeat received at the port of Buffalo.
The figures from the opening of nav,
i r?? urn.. *1? - " - , T
gat-iuii, niaj" ixtu,- tui Linj ciiu 01 tne- I
ame month tills year show shipments
if but 055,195 bushels received, a
ailing off of 0,330,027 bushels. The
hipments of corn received for May,
903, were 4,833,699 bushels; for May,
904,. 1,098,117, a decrease of 3,735,5S2 S
ushels. The shipments of oats reeived
for May, 1903, were 4,414,830,
,-hiie for the same month this year
hey were but 246,000 bushels, the derease
being 4.168,530. In the other
ereals also there were remarkable
ecreases.
In June, 1904',' the' wheat receipts
egan to increase, and at the end of F
he month were 1.252,786 bushels
lore than during the same month
ist year. A slump was felt In the Vi
hipments of corn for June this year
s compared with the figures of June,
903, a decrease of 2,744,792 being reorded.
The shipments of oats re- I
eived during June this year showed
n increase of 291,794 bushels over
tst year's figures, but In the other
ereals there were big increasesas
impared with last year's figures, CI
Startling a.i It may appear to the
arson Interested. in marine shipping ?
flairs there were no shipments of
ur ore received at the port of Bufilb
during the month of .May, thissar,
Xarlgation opened about May
t, and from, that time until June 1, ^
at a barrel or fldur or a pound of ore P
as received at the port. When one I
insiders that during the same month "5^
sr. year 1,108.187 barrels of flour
ere received here it-can be imagined I
le losses entailed by the -our inter- W
sts, and all resulting rom the tie-up r
' traffic, because of the strike.
The flour sbipmerits for June this ?
ear as received here amounted to fe
?,80O parrels. During , the same
onth in 1901] the receipts for flour
ere 1,680,114 barrels, showing a de- i
ease of 1.121.387 barrels. 1
In lumber and general merchandise ~-?!
ere is at? ned slump as
impared with the , figures for May _
id June last year. The receipts for
ily up to date are running far be- I
nd those of the corresponding month
st year and Jt is predicted that the 3
pressing influence of tho strike wjj
U be severely felt all during the
ason of navigation, not only in Buflo,
but along the lakes. m0
