Mr. Shearn. who spoke front the same ,

It Is planned, he said, to employ a ,

that Mr. Hearst represents In
this campaign the foes df the United

Weston, W. Va., Oct. 30.?Hon. J.
S. Durst, assistant state tax commissioner.
was here on Ills way to Richwood,
where he will address the voters
At this place he was shown a copy of
the Fairmont Times, of the date of the
27th Inst., In which paper appears a
statement to the effect that Mr. Darst
had saltl "to a gentleman of unquestionable
Integrity who resides in
Liarkshurg. that the increase of
values now complained of were madcis
a matter of self protection and fti-Itire
salvation of tlic state admlnlstra- |
lion." j|

statement In Its entirety. I never
laid such a thing nor anything like
t to any nmn anywhere, and I chal- (
cnge the Times to name Its man and ,
submit proof. 1 brand the story as a (
lellberate He."
In the same article In the Times is
i farther statement to the effect that
Ur. Djirst had said that the "State adfilnisfratlon
had been assured that
hese assessments weald not be dlsurbod
by the result of any hearings,
md "outside Inlliience could be |
irought to bear upon the judiciary of
his, State in such an Important mater."
Mr. Durst also brands this assertion
is a wilful lie, and declares that he |
lever Intimated such thing to any ,
nan at any time or place. He espe- |
lially asserts that he has at no time (
litered a word which would or could ,
uflect upon the houor or integrity of |
he judiciary of this State. I

Judges Will
Decide Later
The hearing of the Baltimore ami
Ohio appeal case Vs. the Board of
Public Works closed last evening. The
case now rests with the Judges of the |
several circuits through which the 13.
and 0. or Its brunches run. The evidence
taken here will be certified to
each Judge. All the evidence was taken
down by a stenographer. Each
jLdge will be furnished with a record
of the testimony.
The plaintiff put every particle of
evidence that was possible for it to get
in the record. And the record when
made up will show that much of the
testimony wus objected to by coansel
for the defense.
The case was an ln|eresting one and
brought a brilliant array of legal talent
to the c(ty. All of the lawyers connected
with the suit have gone home.
George J. McComas left yesterday at
1:45. Commissioner Dillon left last
night at 9:40. He went to Clarksburg.
C. W. Campbell left to-day at
1:15, and Attorneys W. Mollohan and
IV. W. Van Winkle left to-day on No.
lodge Mason heard some questions
in the King case this morning. Some
Important questions In this case are
in the Supreme court. These fines
lions have been there since March.
Until these questions are decided
