editor of the Charleston News
Insists that the principle of treating
everybody alike In the matter of railroad
mileage is wrong. He maintains
that mileage sold In bulk ought to go
cheaper than when disposed of at retall,
just the same as In selling groceries.
He bases his argument on
this principle against a straight two
sent fare and denies most vigorously
that he is a railroad lobbyist. He
speaks on tills subject in part as follows:
"That indefatigable and Irrepressible
tribune of the people, the Fairmont
West Virginian, avows that the utterances
of the News concerning the
two-cent-a-mile business are prompted
by the association of its editor with
the railroads, as a "railroad lobbyist."
"No charge could possibly be more
sleeper! In absurdity and falsehood.
The editor of the News is not now,
nor has he ever been associated with
Ihe railroads In any such capacity, or
In any capacity at all. This paper Is
now and has been, nil along, conscientiously
and industriously engaged In
nn endeavor to compel the railroads
lo perform their proper relations to
their patrons, a thing that is of greater
Importance to the people of the
State than the proposed reduction o!
passenger fares could possibly be."
The West Virginian doesn't believe
In doing things by halves, and It considers
the railroads' selling tickets
to everybody at the same fare perterminer
thplr "nrnnnr ridnlions In
their patrons." Tills paper can't sec
It any other way. Anil we have an
Idea that if the editor of the News
lives a few monllis longer he will
find that there are numerous others
who think in the snme manner. Sine"
lite railroads have cut off ail free
transportation they can afford to sell
tickets at greatly reduced rates and
still make plenty ot money.

he "Yellow kid." He has proven himelf
a fake and a hypocrite so often
hat the'people hare gotten wise to
lis noise. For years he baa been
iratlng about predatory wealth, buy.
ng elections and the debauching of
he people by the rich corporations.
During the recent campaign his opjonent
showed him tip as a deceiver
tnd tax dodger of the rankest sort
ma now comes nis swum okucui^ui
ihowlng that he spent more than a
niarter of a million Jollars In Ills race
'or the governorship of New York.
That does not Include the amount
pent In securing the nomination,
neither does It take Into account the'
,-ast sum spent In sending millions of
copies of his papers gratis to the vot-!
ers all over the State during the campaign.
Note the Items reported by
Vfr. Hearst anil (hen think of what he
mist have spent of which he Itepl no
account. According to a certificate
llled with the Secretary of Stale he
spent $256,370.22. This sum he divides
Into three heads as follows:
Independence League $108,870.22
Democratic Stale committee 57.600.00
Traveling expenses 500.00
In contrast with Mr. Hearst's statement
Is that of Governor-elect Charles
B. Hughes which was a)so received at
the-Secretary of State's office:
Mr. Hughes' expenditures totnl
$018.55. The Items are:
Traveling expenses $108.10
Telegrams 8.37
Postage 12.31
Stenographic services 111.90
Two private secretaries and an
assistant U7G.S3
A study of these figures will show
what an arrant demagogue and political
fake and hypocrite W. R. Hearst is.
Think of spending $250,.170.2! as a
candidate for Governor of a slnsl"
State! What would he spend at that
rate In trying lo buy the; Presidency,
toward which lie was headed? How
can William Jennings Bryan endorse
snch a man ns that and compliment
him on the great race he ran. They
are both tarred with the same stick.
They are both loudmouthed demagogues
trying to get Into power by
arousing clnss haired and Inciting
class prejudice. The sooner the people
relegate snch men to the rear and
make them stay there, the better It
will he for the country.

Ilelow are a few references from yesterday's
Hon. P. W. Morris Is still filling
the editorial page of his State Journal
with politics, and promises his
readers to lteep it up ad infinitum.
He evidently realizes the fact that
the G. 0. P. will he up against It in
the next campaign, and wants to get
an early start.?Fairmont Times.
The above is all right, excepting
the editor of the Slate Journal Is not
tilling his page with politics, has not
promised to keep it up Indefinitely, is
not realizing the Republican party will
be up against anything the next campaign
and is not trying to get any
early start.
'All admit that very little money and
booze were used In the late election

just the same. That shows how

Still this is not very complimentary
to the voters.
Judging from the Fairmont papers,
the little city on the hill is very proud
of a visit from Col. Boh Fitzsimtwms.
Parkersburg had General Jim Jeffreys
years ago.
The Fnlrmont West Viririninn says
that the turkey gobbler's finish Is almost
in sight. It is going to cost sttmo
money though.
The Patitersliurg Sentinel gives it
up as to the chances for Democratic
success in West Virginia in the following;
more or less vigorous and pathetic
"George Byrne believes the Democratic
party of West Virginia needs
a new leader. Possibly George
could have come nearer the hull's eye
had he said the party needs more
votes. A lender without followers

However, the difficulty may not lio so
much because of the want of a loader

and unkind criticisms of those

party; third, the Republicans

The lawyers in the First judicial
circuit have seemingly made a mistake.
They undertook to select a sue
cessor to the late Judge Jlelvin, although
that Is a duty devolving upon
the chief executive of the Slate. They
didn't give the governor two or three
names to choose from, but only one,
that of William Ersltlne. The members
of the Mound&ville har reconsidered
their endorsement and yesterday
espoused the cause oh Mr.
Charles McCamlc. At this distance
It loolts very much as if Governor
Dawson would appoint Mr. Frank Nesbltt,
of Wheeling, and the appointment
would be a good one. Mr. Nesbltt ts

The Charleston Gazette has gone
Into the business of trying to gather
crumbs of comfort for Its disheartened
Democratic brethren. Among other
things it mentions the magnificent
race Judge Dent made against the Hon
Geo. C. Sturglss In the Second district
and says the Democrats lost nothing
there. Perhaps they didn't, but the
Republicans ousted a Democrat and
put Mr. SturgisR In by a majority of
a.ooo. The Republicans gained some
thins, whether the Democrats lost anything
or not.
One reason William Alsoraxiddlph
Hearst doesn't think he will run for
office soon again Is possibly because
he doesn't have another quarter of a
million lying around handy to dump
into Ihe political pot. Running for
office is expensive business for Mr.
Hearst, the great champion of the
common pee-pul.
The old man has quit picking at
"Marsh" Jacobs since the people gave
him such n nice majority for the Legislature,
hut lie still has It in fur
Harry Slinw. He lias never Jiked
Harry since he called him a "common
liar." That was pretty tough, but the
old fellmv ilidn't dispute it.
Says the Parkersburg Slate Journal:
The Pittsburg papers are not talkins
much now about lawlessness in
West Virginia. They have their eyes
glued nearer home.
