McKinley will not meet KxGov. Wilson of this Stale in joint debate. The Washington Star discusses the possibility of the Democrats not only getting the Presidency and the next House, but also the Senate as well. Forrest W. Brown, Esq., in his speech at Bolivar a few nights ago, said he was informed that the price of wood pulp had been advanced CO per cent., and asked those of the pulp mill employees whose wages bad been advanced to rise up. There were some of them present, but none responded. Edward S. Elliot, Stj'led "the boy orator of Preston county," is to address the Republicans here to-morrow night. A letter from Grafton to the Wheeling Register, dated October 11, which we regret we have not space for in this issue, charges Mr. Elliot with plagiarism in making use, in a speech at the soldiers' reunion, at Kingwood, extracts from Ingoolls famous reunion speech. Col. Wm. A. MacCorkle, our Democratic candidate for Governor, was greeted by a large number of citizens at Charles Town in the Court House on Wednesday afternoon last, at which place and time he had been advertised to speak. In spite of his severe labors during the campaign he looks hale and hearty, and proposes to pursue the work continuously until the day of election. In private conversation he speaks encourageingly of the prospect of Democratic success, and no one who talked with him could fail to imbibe that confidence which he posesses. Having to speak in Martinsburg that night and to drive by private conveyance to Shenandoah Junction to catch the 5 o'clock train, he had only about one hour and a half to spend in the town, and could uot therefore make his promised speech on the issues of the campaign. lie however for a half hour recounted to his audience some of the details of the liepublican scheme to colonize and capture West Virginia, and assured them that by vigilent effort, continuous work and close watch on the part of Democrats in every section, the;e echo^es would be frustrated and an old time Democratic victory won.? Those persons who have not heretofore had the opertunity to see or hear our future Governor were very much disappointed at not being able to liear him fully on the issues of Hie campaign. They were, however, reconciled by his promise to return and speak here during this month. At the closc of the address the speaker was presented with a handcome boquct of choice flowers, A. E. Kenned}-,Esq., doing Uie honors of the occasion in appropriate remarks jipd pol. MacCorkle fitly responding. .? RALLY! DEMOCRATS. Virginia I Maryland ! West Virginia I GRAND TRI-STATE DEMOCRATIC MASS MEETING AT Island Park, HARPER'S FERRY, W. VA., Wednesday, October 19 ADDRESSES BY Hon. Thomas F. Bayard, Hon. Wm. A. MacCorkle, Hon. Wm. L. "Wilson, Col. Victor Baughman, Col. Buchanan Schley, Hon. Thomas R. Clendenin, Hon. Wm. A. Anderson, ? Hon. Joseph S. Ileuisler, Hon. Wm. Cabell Bruce, Hon. E. Key Buchanan. The Hon. Barnes Complon, Chairman of the Maryland State Committee, and the Hon. Basil B. Gordon, Chairman of the Virginia State Committee, have promised hearty co-opcration to make the meeting a grand success. The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad has agreed to run SPECIAL TRAINS AT ROUNDTRIP RATES. Rally, Democrats, and show the Force Bill and Monopoly party that West Virginia cannot be bought. Our brethren of Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia and Florida, have spoken in thunder tones, that the infamous Force Bill cannot be crammed down the throats of the Southern people. Democrats of Jefferson! stand to your colors! Remember thatJefferson is the Banner Democratic county of the State. Two counties of the State have served notice on us that they will contest with us this year for that honor. We welcome the rivalry and have r.o fear for the result. Democrats of Jefferson, stand to your proud position! Hold the Banner! The members of the Democratic Executive Committee of the county are requested to act as a reception committee, and in addition the following named gentlemen: Forrest W. Brown, R. W. Morrow, Wm. M. Morrison, Wm. O. Norris, Jas. W. Coyle, Albert F. Davis, James A. Aldridge, Vincent G. Moore. Isaac II. Strider, J. S. Bragonier, E. Hess Reinhart, Wm. Butler," J. Garland Hurst, J. W. Rider and Jno. F. Foley. Members of reception Committee are requested to call on Mayor Geo. McGlincy at the Potomac House, and get badges. John M. Daniel, Chm'n. Dem. Ex. Com. of Jeff. Co. A colored orator, "Hon. John P. Good," discoursed in the interest of the Republican party at the courthouse last night. We only heard him for a few minutes, and during this short period he dilated upon the opportunity of making desks and getting two dollars for them by protection where only one would be received under free trade?his colored auditors of course being all engaged in making desks. A few wild assertions, such as that pearl buttons were so much cheaper than they used so be, (when a merchant in our heartng remarked that he had to pay for them now just twice what he did two years ago,) seemed to be the stock in trade with which he hoped to gull the colored vote. His appeal to the Democratic colored inen to return to the Republican party was a sad wail, indicative of the strait to which the g. o. p. is put in its last dying effort for existence. The Cleveland and Wilson Club of this place was adressed last Friday night by Hon. Win. R. Alexander of Winchester. A large and appreciative audience, anions whom were the fairfaces of manyof our ladies,greeted the speaker. In the absence of the President of the Club, Forrest W. Brown presided and introduced him. For about an hour and a half Sir. Alexander ably and eloquently discussed the issues of the campaign, presenting thein in new phases, and often eliciting tumultuous applause. After dealing with the tariff and the force bill he referred to the character and political records of the different candidates, and the mention of the names of Cleveland and Wilson and the eloquent comments upon their life and character were received with cheers by the audience from time to time, which made the old courthouse ring. We think that no one who was present, after observing the enthusiasm, of the audience could say that anything like apathy prevails in this community. Hon. Thos. F. Bayard, The former eminent Senator from Delaware, and late Secretary of State under President Cleveland, will apeak in the Court House at Charles Town on Tuesday Evening, October 18, 1892. at 8 o'clock.

The last of the Pennsylvania troops have left Homestead. The eighty-fifth volume of Harper's Magazine will be completed with the number for November. A Grafton special to the Wheeling Register says that the official brigade under the direction of Commissioner of Internal revenue are making desperate efforts to defeat Congressman Wilson. Mr. Wisner says the Force bill is not an issue in this campaign. Ben. Butterworth, of Ohio, discussed the Force bill at Morgantown, and promised the adoptiou if the Republicans continue in power. The declaration of Bishop Brown, a talented and sensible colored man, will be found in this paper, and his candid appeal to the men of his race should reach the hearts and minds of all intelligent, thinking men of his color. Mr. Cleveland has written a letter declining to attend the dedication of the World's Fair buildings at Chicago, for the reason that he desired no political advantage that might result from the journey while President Harrison is detained at Washington by domestic affliction. On the Way to Paradise. Let ii8 hope I lint the peorle who habit unity disregard their health will reach that desirable place, and avoid the locality whieh is let* desirable as an eternal residence on account of the heat and Hirrounditurs trcnenilly. But while we tarry in this vale of tears, why should we voluntarily endure the tortures of dyspepsia when a systematic use of Host* tter's Stomach Bitters will rid us of the atrocious malady whieh?unless physicians are vcrv much at fault?tends to shorten the term of our existence. Heartburn, biliousness, constipation almost always accompany this complaiut and are symptomatic of it. These are all extinguished by the Hitters, whieh also conquers completely malaria, rheumatism, nervousness atul debility. .Since the appearance of "la jrrippe" it has shown a singular mastery over this formidable complaint that has carried off so many of our brl^hest and best.

The African Methodist Prelate Appeals to His People. Nashville, Tent.".,Oct. 12.?Bishop John M. Brown, of the African Methodist Episcopal Church, a resident of Washington, D. C., has announced his adherence to the Democratic party and advises all his church to do the saine. Bishop Brown has heen a strong factor in the Republican party's work among the colored people heretofore, and he has changed his politics because of the settled conviction that his race has nothing to hope from the Republican party. Such a course destroyed his influence. So long as a party was sure of the negro vote that party would have no respect for the negro or the negro wishes. The negro must begin to vote for that party from which he has most to expect. Bishop Brown has written an open letter to the members of his church, , in which he discussed the question of which candidate the negro should support. He says: "For nearly thirty years we have done all we could to make the Republican party successful. We have voted and some of our people have died for its progress. But now the question isrbeing asked by a large number of us, How are we being benefited by our adherence to it? The chalice is but to our lips, but it is made to vanish before one comfort comes to us. "Our men are sometimes nominated for office, their names sent to the Senate, but before the Senate has time to act the name is withdrawn." He then contrasts this with Mr. Cleveland's course in nom'nattng Mr. Mathews for register of deeds in Washington and his insistence on the nomination until he was shewn that the Republican Senate would not confirm him. Of Mr. Cleveland he says: "Not long ago he spoke most kindly of our people and urged kind treatment toward colored citizens. I was told by a gentleman in New York?at one time chief of the Indian bureau, a man of wealth and social position, a Democrat, a Southerner by birth and education and an ex-slave-holder?that he had been assured by Mr. Cleveland that if elected President he would prove himself as true to the interests of colored men as any man who might be elected. "The question comes to us, What is our duty in casting our ballot, if we vote at all? For Mr. Cleveland or for the person who has no pronounced opinion for the colored man only on election day? It is not social equality we ask,but we do ask that we be treated fairly. "I now appeal to you, dear brethren, to think before you act, aud do not act so as to engulf us in other and more severe difficulties. If you cannot consistently vote for Mr. Cleveland, then stav away from the voting precinct. The time has come for us to act, and act decidedly." Bishop Brown says he has talked with many intelligent negroes and finds much feeling in the matter, all taking his view. Democratic Mass-Meeting at Island Park. The Baltimore and Ohio R.
