will be largely documentary, with a .
brief oral examination of two or threo

would extend 'over months.
We desire to have present at many

JOHN HENSHAW WAS NOT THE
WHOLE SHOW, BUT HE WAS
A BIG PART OF IT.
Probably the greatest success In
theatrical circles for many a day teas
the appearance of "Captain Careless"
at the Grand last night. Much had
teen read and talked of this attraction
and the expectations of the theater
goers demanded much for satisfaction
and In no Instance wus there
disappointment 'John ttenahaw, as

D.'rsons as Sol Solomon. Forest Huff,
Harry Lane, Alice Yorke and May

has been seen here before in the
Chinese Honeymoon" and/the audience
was prepared for line work on
his part His first appearance wan
greeted by great applause and time
after time he was recalled to the
stage. There were many excellent
voices among the principal characters
is well as In the chorus and they
were all well drilled. The stage sellings
were fine and the costumes good,
.he appearance of tne five Nosses
was an attraction to a great many
ft irmont people. Some flf'een o
dghteen years ago the annual appcaruice

t Is safe to say that "Captain CnreesS"
will be one of the attractions
which will be remembered by, the

The address was pronounced to be
one of the finest that has ever been cj
nade before a Fairmont audience and U|
for one hour and twenty minutes the CI
doctor was accorded the undivided at- g(
tcntion of the vast audience. Dr. Gell w
has just completed a five years' tour ^
(if the world and Is well fitted to deal c
with the subject of his address. Dr. '
Cell is an advocate of foreign missions,
and the convincing argument he
offered for the cause was calculated
lb cause a revival of the missionary
spirit. He spoke of the benefit which
had already been felt in the heathen a
countries where the light of the gospel
had already penetrated and ha
condemned our own enlightened coun- s'
try for the treatment to which .the 06
Syrian leper had been subjected He C?
claimed that missionaries in foreign "
countries care for the lepers with little
fear of contagion.

on "The Destruction of ^Cannibalism." ,>
ON FIRST DAY OF
CI.AY, W. Va., Oct. 17.?It has In- .
eod been a red letter day for Repair
canisni and tax reform In Clay counr.
Tax Commissioner Dillon and
overnor Dawson were billed to speak
1 the opening of circuit court and an (
nmense crowd, the largest seen In 1
lis county for many years, gathered !
om all parts of the country to hear '
icm, this being one of the counties j
i the State In which nearly every j
tlzen Is 'benefited by the operation c
' the new tax Bystem. The Demo- 1
atlc committee, In order to try to i
em the tide, challenged Mr. Dillon, I
ho was billed tor the morning meet- <
g ,for a joint discussion with W, E. I
hllton. The challenge was promptly I
tcepted by the chairman of the Re- f
iblican committee and the fun bo- f
Mr. Dillon, In a speech 'of one hour, f
tve an exposition of the new tax
ws, which delighted the Republicans f
id struck dismay to the hearts of J i
,e Democrats. Every sentence of Ills'i
leech was to the point and his earn- '
tness and straight forward manner!'
irrled conviction even to many of *
c Democratic listeners. 1
Mr. Chilton, in a speech lasting an !
iur and a quarter, tried In vain to I
mnteract the effect of Mr. Dillon's 1
glcal discussion. No attempt was
ade by the speaker to refute the ariment,
the versatile Mr. Chilton con- c
ilng himself exclusively' to vicious "
tacks upon the Republican adminls- "
ation, charging the governor and '
x commissioner with insincerity and r
ck of good faith, and predicting (
any (lire tilings that would befall '
e people under the administration 5
the new tax system In the future, 1
ongh compelled to admit that they r
ere beneficial to the averuge tax- '
lyer this year. Mr. Chilton, who Is c
e rival oT Colonel McC.raw for the 1
sited States Senatorship In case the '
glslature this year might by any 1
lance be Democratic, Is not only one 1
the most eloquent and logical ''
eakers in the Democratic party, but c
i found himself up against a proposl- '
in for which.he was not prepared and '
am which he could not extricate him- 1
Mr. Dillon's closing argument, which
(ted only twenty minutes, was perils
the most masterful and convlnc- '
-- lilt of oratory ever delivered In this
iirt house. He completely demolish- *
i every vestige of his opponent's ar- ^
iment and won for himself not only J
e everlasting love and esteem of the
publicans, but the genuine admlra ^
in of the Democrats as well.

GENERAL GROSVENOR DISCUSS-"
ED THE POLITICAL SITUATION
IN OHIO AND
WASHINGTON, Oct. 17.? General
drosvenor, who ever since the first
VlcKlnley presidential campaign has
leen famous Hie country over as the
Ready Reckoner" of the Republican
arty, Is in town. The General will
set to work In a few days on bis table
:f the next House of Representatives
le will figure out a Dig Republican
najority may be a trifle smaller than
t was In the past. Individually, Genual
Grosvenor will, for the first time
n his life, view with Christian fortltide
anything that might happen In
! e Eleventh Ohio dlsiri t, Vr a per
ion named Douglass beat the vcneralie
General Grosvenor for the nominitlon.
General Grosvenor called on Presllent
Roosevelt and talked politics
vith him for a time. Just as he was
bout to leave the room he handed
dr. Roosevelt a marked copy of a
uagazlnc which confined the pieco
vrltten by the General advocating Mr.
(oosevelt's re-election. Mr. Roosevelt
nttghed as he took the magazine, but
lesldcs saying that he had heard of
he article, he refrained from comnent.
When General Grosvenor reluctantly
onsented to be Interviewed he set up
i theory that surprised his hearers,
fhe Republican party, according to
Jcneral Grosvenor, must meet the
irohlbltlon issue. On this issue In
)hlo the Republicans are likely to
ose the Third district, now repre;ented
by Mr. Nevlri. There Is a Sol
Hers' Home In this district, and the
ild soldiers of the home are bitterly
ndlgnnnt against the Republicans bemuse
at the last session, Congress
'O-ssed a law forbidding the canteens
a the soldiers' homes nnd'substltntng
prohibition of the strictest type
-Jr. Nevin found the sentiment against
Im so bitter that he declined to be a
mndldate for renomlnatlon. The
Jemocrats have nominated former
loverncr Campbell, and he Is malting
he prohibition Issue the mnln topic
f his speeches.
"But not only in Ohio Is prohlblIon
giving tis trouble." said General
Irosvenor. "but In Maine the Reptibleans
will have to face this Issue
ooner or later. If the Republicans of
Talne do not give the people of that
state a chance to declare whethev
hey warit prohibition In their constlullon
any longer or not, they will
use the State. If the Democrats had
mown their strength In the election
ast September there Is no telling
that might have happened."
General Grosvenor thinks th-.t Conress
ought to repeal the prohibition
iw in the soldiers' homes.
