The Republican was Informed by a gentleman who stands close to Mr. Swisher, this afternoon, that 8wisber supporters are cropping up all over the State, and that never before had the gentleman received so many earnest offers of support. The gentleman conversing with tlie Republican stated that In reality Mr. Swisher Is the only man in the State who has made any announcement of candidacy, and that he Is In the race to stay. He further says that If Mr. Swisher lives he will be the next Republican nominee for governor. As Charley is In "fine health and spirits at this time, the Indications are that he will live through it." ' ' The State Journal acknowledges that there are "Teter people' and that It Is, or was, on "the other Bide" from them, but It seems to want to cater to them as though it were afraid they wouldn t be for Its editor for Congress. They won't be anyhow, so It's no use to show the white feather to that crowd. The best way to get along with them Is to lick 'em every time they bob up and want to run things for the corporations with the aid and for the comfort of the Democrats. Under the old law a State tax of 3.1 cents on the $100 was paid Into the State treasury, which In 1904 amounted to Aout $43,000.00, according to the books of ex-Sheriff Jolllff". This year the county will pay about $25,000 -lnto the State treasury. Those are the figures our Democratic friends avoid giving when trying to work off tax dope on the people. i A bunch of Ave husky fellows was arrested at Grafton yesterday on charge of loitering. It was discovered that they were using a blind man to make collections on the street and then they would share his money to buy booze with. Such brutes In human form ought to be tarred and feathered and run to the woods. Just think how the new tax laws have been burdened with old debts piled almost mountain high by .Democrats under the old law! It Is a wonder they work half as well as they do. Just suppose the new laws had bad a elpar field with no old debts hanging over them. Our taxes would be next to nothing. We note in an advertisement of the Glenville Pathfinder this week that t!i? spring term of the Glenville State Noimal school will begin March 19th. It seems to us people would be more Interested at this time In.the opening of the fall term, but we may be wrong about it. Some Democratic papers are complaining because teachers' salaries have been raised. They blame it on the new tax laws. We are looking for a shower of rain before long. This dry weather surely can't last always. Ml M M AI 11 MMM HtLU MUNtTI HIK OFFICE BOY LAD SEARCHES IN VAIN FOR KIND STRANGER HE lilET ON BANK STEPS, PITTSBURG, July 26.?"Take these three five dollar bills over to the bank and get some change," said C. D. Robinson, a broker In the Home Trust Building, to his 15 year old office boy yesterday afternoon. On the steps of the Colonial Trust Company the lad was stopped by a well dressed youth of 20, who was In a great hurry. "Here, kid, I'm In an awful rush?will you do an errand foi me?'" asked the stranger. "Yes," began the hoy, "gut ? ana e looked at the greenbacks, which he still held In Is hand. "I'll hold those for you, so yon won't lose 'em," Interrupted the stranger. "Now, here's a quarter for you?git!" ffMgBj ,f tt!alecall"for'hTn' . WHEELING, July 26.?Hon. Arnold C. Sherr, of Charleston, auditor of the State of West Virginia, arrived in the city yesterday afternoon, and will remain over until this afternoon before returning to the State capital Mr, Scherr declares bis visit has no politl-1 cal significance, but then that was to have been expected, simply because politicians never admit that politics ever Impelled them to a journey so lone even as across the street' for a handshake. j However that may be,. Mr. Scherr, during his stay at the McLure, met many of the Ohio county Republican leaders, and State politics was greatly in evldepce In the numerous confabs the auditor llgured in* May Run For Governor. What interested Auditor Scherr's callers most was his attitude with regard to the gubernatorial nomination of next year. 8ome of the State papers have recently again sprung the name of the auditor as possible candidate to head the Republican State ticket of 1908. " I "What have you to say regarding your possible candidacy for govern-' or?" the reporter remarked as an opening wedge. "I am not now a candidate for governor and may never become one," responded Mr. Scherr. "I am free to admit, however, that I have'recently received a number of letters asking me ^ to enter the race, but up to his time I have declined to accede to the desires of my friends oyer the State. There is only one contingency that will bring about my candidacy?If It should develop that, there is a substantial call for me to ran I would become a candidate. Byt in no event would I figure in an unseemly scramble for this high office, the dignity of which I respect to'the utmost aim have always believed that it should seek the man rather than the candidate seek the office. That Is as much as I can say now as to the governorship." "What of Republican prospects in West Virginia in the next campaign?" "I consider them excellent, and I am not one of those who believe that the 31,000 plurality given President Roosevelt three years ago was In excess of the normal Republican strength. On the other hnnd I believe that the Republican vote in our State is constantly increasing, and, that the election of 1908 will demon-1 strate this. But when I make this pre- j diction 1 will add the proviso that we enter the next campaign with harmony nailed to the masthead, and with an absence of any machine domination. The growth of Republicanism in the southern section of West Virginia is really remarkable, and with conditions favorable next year me ought to carry j Kanawha county by over 3,000 majority. Fayette and other counties will also show increased majorities for the Republican candidates next year if we have no family quarrels on hand." AMERICAN RAILROADS THEMOST DEADLY A PRUSSIAN OFFICIAL SO DECLARES IN A COMPARATIVE TABLE OF STATISTICS. BERLIN, July 26?Herr Guillery, an official of the archive bureau of the Prussian railway administration, has prepared a comparative table of statistics of those killed and Injured by railways In various countries. He finds that both absolutely and relatively the railroads in the unueu auues uie uic most deadly. The United States has more mileage than all Europe, but even taking that Into consideration, the United States holds pre-eminence In proportional figures. I Out of every thousand railway em ployes the ratio or tne numuer iujucu each year is as follows: United States, 43.5; Switzerland, 25.3; England, 11.8; Belgium, 11; Germany, 2.4. Out of every 10,000 employes the relative figures of killed are: United States, 20.1; England, 13.1; j Switzerland, 8.2; Russia, 7.8; British! India, 0.7; Belgium, 4.1. Herr Gulllery finds that In a single year, the fiscal year of 1902-3, 70,600 persons were Injured In the United States, of whom 00,000 were employes, and 9,800 were killed, of whom 3,000 were employes. In the matter of travelers Injured, France holds the lowest record in we ( wdtld. United States shows propor-^ tlonate 40 times as many Injured as, Russia, 22 times as many as Italy, and \ England 20. Belgium 8, Switzerland, 4 and Germany 2.
