to them, but cannot sen it. The concensus
of opinion among: lawyers and
judges Is that Judge Mason'is right In
his opinion. tHoweever, Judge Doolittie,
of- Huntington, holds that the
clubs are entitled to sell under the license
granted In accordance with the
new law. A test case In the Supreme
Court of 'Appeals will no doubt be carried
up soon, but In the meantime our
advice to social clubs la to take fair
warning and go slow In the matter of
selling intoxicants.
WM. H. SAWYERS, INDEPENDENT.
The independent-Herald published
at Hinton, Is about what its name ira
plies and although Democratic It Is
not of the new brand, tainted with socialism.
Editor Wm. H. Sawyers this
week rids his system of the following:
"Every now and then some Democrat
jumps on thee ditor of this paper
for not tacitly swallowing all Mr.
Bryan's populism. We are one Democrat,
gentlemen. The rest of you
may swallow populism and socialism
for policy sake but we do not. And It
occurs to us that In politics we have
to light the Republican party and we
must fight It In the spots where It U
wrong and not fight It where It Is
right. The American people nor no
other people on the top of God's green
ithe 'Initiative and referendum.' The
the 'Initiative and referdum.' The
great masses are no more honest than
their representatives and In the multitude
there Is more often confusion
than Intelligence. The Congress of
the United States Is honest except
where It Is cowardly and nfrald of the
people. Mr. Bryan and nearly all oth
?? "? onsllmntlnn

that the people are always right, A
true Jloses makes no such assumption.
He occasionally gets red headed
and breaks up their golden calves
and turns them Into the right direction.
And we want no government
ownership of railroads. Who would run
the railroads If we had government
ownership? Obviously the very same
fellows who are running them now or
they would not he run at all. We
know just as much about running a
railroad as Bryan and the sum of what
we both know Is nothing. But we
( cognize the fact in nature that when
Oo.l made diamonds and precious
stones lie mixed them up with dirt,
when he made gold and silver he stirred
a lot of dross and alloy into it. And
when he made mnn he made in him
a mixture of almost everything. Brynn
Is one of these men who seem determined
to keep the worst side of his
politics to the public."
A TAX ILLUSTRATION.
Sheriff Furhee tells an interesting
i""i with n nice lesson In It.
OlIVll. OVUI J
A lady In Pennsylvania owns a lot In :
one of the additions to Fairmont.' Under
the old assesment the lot was
valued at $130. The lady had been
paying her tn.\es right along not noticing
particularly how much the
amount was, but not long ago she
came to Fairmont and dropped In at
the sheriff's office to see what had
happened. In a somewhat Injured
tone she Inquired why the value of
her lot had been increased so much on
the assessor's book. She said a couple
of years ago it was valued at only $130 :
and now she noticed It was down at
$330. She thought they must be trying
to rob her because she was from
another State. The sheriff explained
to her the law of assessment on the
"true and actual value" basis and then
said her taxes would probably be but
little higher. He asked her If she had
her receipt for 1905. She said she
had and on comparing It with the receipt
for 190(1 it was found that her
taxes were 17 cents lower under the
new assesmcnt than they were under
the old. She was convinced by the
figures, but she seemed almost as
much puzzled as a Democratic editor
to see how her property could be Increased
In valuation almost three times
and still the tax he lower. It was simply
n matter of the rate going down
more rapidly than the valuation went
up, a thing our Demoratic friends grew
red 111 the faeo allying never com

The School!,
With the opening of the university
end the normal schools this week tne
once more in full operationetaohinrd
State's educational plant Is once more!
in full operation. That It should suecussfully
and sufficiently accompllsn
the important work for the performance
of which It is devised ought to
be one of the most ardent desires of
every good citizen. The progress of
the race Is largely dependent upon the
fidelity with which each generation
performs Its pedagogic function in relation
to the generation next succeeding.
We are accustomed to- think of our
typld industrial development as the
true measure of our State's great progress.
As a matter of fact that pro
gresB will be far more accurately
gauged by the advance we make in
our methods and means of education.
Changes (or the better In our school
systemduring the ten years past have
been most encouraging. Since the university
first began to feel the impulse
and the Impact of. the educational ideas
of the new century, great steps =
forward have been taken. 'As Presl- ct
dent Purlnton so strikingly showed in |s
his convocation address, our present g(
rate of expansion continued through a
period of flfteenvyears would make our j3
State University a greater institution
than any university now existing in al
this country??greater In the number w
of its teachers and students and in its "
wealth of equipment and Income. "
The effect of this development at
the university has been (elt through- ~
out the entire common school system
of the State. The number of well
equipped high schools has been growing
with Increasing rapidity. The secondary
work of the State normals has
been strengthened, and some of the
normals are now on the way toward a
nroner performance of their distinc
tive function as technical training |
schools for teachers. Best of all, hundreds
of teachers of the common
schools In the smaller cities and
towns, and a smaller number from the
rural schools, have come Into contact
with the new educational thought at
the university summer school. The
new educational spirit has Infused itself
more or less into the conduct of
the teachers' institutes, so that every
county In the State has' shared to
some extent In the awakening.
Much remains to be done. The last
legislature failed to give our antiquated
school laws the overhauling they
so much need. The splendid work of
the educational commission could not
successfully run the gnuntlet of invincible
legislative ignorance and prejudice.
The fragmentary legislation
which was adopted afforded some re- _
lief, however, and the fact remains
that much progress is possible, even
in the face of inadequate and unintelligent
law making. The enlighten*
- i- in

the importance of the work of the
schools is evidently making progress
all over'the State, and this enlightenment
will be followed by the enactment
of a more satisfactory school
law for West Virginia.?Horgantown

NEW BACEMENT.
AT COAL CITY ADDS GREATLY TO d
APPEARANCE AND CONVENI- c
ENCE OF THE STORE.
' The opening of the new basement,
at the Coal City House Furnishing

Improvement In the appearance of the
establishment. The first floor has 3
been newly . papered and painted
throughout, more space Is left for passage

beautifully decorated with samples 'of 81
the hundreds of framed pictures that

rear windows.
The china department In the new
basement Is as pretty as a picture 6
and the tallies and shelves ladened g
with decorated china certainly pre- ;
sent a fine appearance.
