<Jhr jshrphrrdstoirn ^rgista H. L. SNYDliR, Editor and Publisher, Shepherdstown, W. Va. Thursday, - March 30, 1911. The long road never seems so long, The rough way half so rough, If they who travel sing a song And laugh and smile enough. MARTINSBURQ has gone dry. Charles Town and Harper's Ferry come next. + The hold-up in the New York Legislature is another strong reason for the election of United States Senators by popular vote. ? congress will meet in extra session next Tuesday. The House will be all right, but nobody knows what the Senate will do. it is likely that President Taft hesitates to tell why he sent an army to the Mexican border because he had really no good reason for doing so. When affairs get so bad that they cannot be worse, then they get better. That's what happened in Martinsburg. Temperance and decency just had to triumph there. A learned Frenchman has just completed a book of two volumes, in which he thinks he proves that Columbus did not discover America. Well, thank fortune, somebody did. ALTHOUUH ine rauruuus wcic uui ysimitted to increase their rates the first of April, as they so piteously prayed, we have heard of none, so far, that intends to go out of business. Jack Johnson, the negro pugilist, has set his heart on becoming an aviator, and he will have a big flying machine built for his own use. This is where Johnson will be knocked out in the first round. I A resolution has been introduced in the Pennsylvania Legislature to investigate the outrageously high prices of anthracite coal. No resolution is needed to get at the reason for this particular extortion?it is because the railroads are such hogs. ? The result of the license election in Martinsburg goes to show that our two estimable State Senators?Messrs. Silver and Mclntire?were not representing their constituents, after all, when they opposed every form of liquor regulation in the Legislature. It is said that President Taft has explained to several prominent Senators why he sent the United States Army to \AO v i/?A WJp thinlr fllQt VlA WHIlld dft well to take all the people into his confidence. The fact that he does not do so is of itself an indication that he is not on very solid ground. The temperance cause is gaining ground steadily in West Virginia. The conservative Eastern Panhandie has been hard to move, but the leaven is now working. Morgan county is dry, Berkeley county soon will be, and the only wet spots left are Charles Town and Harper's Ferry. And they have got to be dried up, loo! The town of Grafton voted ' wet" last week, and the saloon advocates were highly elated, declaring that this was additional evidence that the temperance wave is receding. When they heard the news from Martinsburg, however, they had nothing to say, tor in their hearts they know that the saloon must go from West Virginia. A witness before the committee at Springfield, Illinois, investigating the bribery and corruption in connection with the election of William Lorimer to Ununited States Senate, testified on Tues day that President Taft was deeply interested in Lorimer's election and did all that he could for him. The Presidents probably ashamed of it by this time?ai least, he should be. IT is not often that any man of standing has the assurance to publicly advocate the open saloon?the greatest men ace and harm to the people of the world today. But Hon. Stuart W. Walkerspoke against local option last Friday night in the opera house in Martinsburg on the same platform with ex-Mavor Kose. the notorious representative of the Milwaukee brewers, and they also had Adam Littlepage, recently elected to Congress from Charleston, W. Va , to help out. One or two respectable men cannot make such an evil as the whiskey saloon respectable, however, and these gentlemen harmed themselves without helping their cause. Incidentally it may be observed that the political exigencies must have been great to induce Col. Walker to take such a stand. The Democrats of New York seem unable to elect a United States Senator, even though they have a majority of votes in the Legislature, for the reason that a little band of insurgents hold the balance of power and resolutely refuse to support Wm. F. Sheehan, the candidate of rotten Tammany Hall. Sheehan controlled the caucus and got the nomination, but nothing can move the men who believe that he is unfit for the office, and they are holding up the election until a suitable candidate is presented. Somehow, we glory in their spunk, for the corrupt organization that pushes him forward is little better than the influences that for so long kept Depew and Piatt in the Senate as direct representatives of the cor porations. West Virginia would be better off if we had had a tew able insurgents in the recent Legislature. In a speech in San Francisco on Tuesday Theodore Roosevelt came out strongly in favor of adopting some method of bringing the federal judiciary into closer touch with the people and advocated reform in the present method of appointment. He is unquestionably right about this, for there have been more than a few instances in recent years where it was only too plain that federal judges have been appointed solely because they could be depended upon to carry out the wishes of great corporate interests. Some of the most beneficial legislation that the country has known has been set aside by the arbituary action of federal judges, and the people have been robbed ot their rights and the will of legislatures annulled by 1 men of questionable motives who sit se- \ curely on the federal bench, safe sheltered from accountability. We do, indeed, I need reform in the federal judiciary. NOTES BY OBSERVER. ^ The other evening Observer had an interesting conversation with two Shepherdstown ladies who remembered many incidents that occurred in this town and vicinity during the Civil War, and this conversation brought forth some stories ' that are worth recording. Those of whom we refer were Mrs. Nannie Lea and Miss j Bettie McGlincy, and their sister, the late 1 Miss Virginia McGlincy, who was one of ' the most devoted Southerners that lived j in our town, had jotted down notes of I war-time events that Observer enjoyed | reading. Perhaps the readers of the Register may find them interesting, also. On one occasion a number of the Rebel boys had come through the lines to Shepherdstown to visit their wives and sweethearts and home folks, and while they were enjoying themselves, with little thought of danger, the Yankees suddenly made their appearance and surrounded the town. There was a wild scramble for safety. One young soldier, who was afterward a well-known physician of this county, hid himself in the town run that crosses Main street in front of where the Register office now stands. He lay there in the water all day and most of the night, until finally the coast was clear and he was able to crawl out undetected. When he joined the other uoys, who had also come from their hiding places, they had a hearty laugh at the bedraggled appearance of poor "Mase," who looked like a soaked herring. Another young fellow hid himself under his house, where he was in comparative safety, but later he discovered two big snakes coiled up alongside, and he was in considerable of a pickle, for he had no use for snakes. He concluded, however, that he would rather take chances with the snakes than with the Yankees, and he decided that it they didn't bother him he would not disturb them. So all day long they lay side by side, until he really felt that they were good friends. Nevertheless, he parted from them without regret when he had a chance to creep out. This man is now a sober-sided resident of Shepherdstown. VVojjder if he has forgotten the incident ? ^Another soldier boy, who is now a veteran still true to the Lost Cause, made a bee-line for home when he heard that the Yankees were close by, and running to the garret hid himself between the floor and the ceiling. Although search was made for him, his hiding-place was not discovered, and he kept as still asa mouse. He remained in his uncomfortable quarters for two days and a night, for as he had been seen to enter the house a watch was kept by the Yankees as long as they remained in town. His mother fed him as best she could, but by the time the coast was clear he was almost helpless from lying in his cramped quarters for so long. His limbs had to be rubbed and oathed a long time before he was able to walk. A pathetic incident occurred west of Shepherdstown. A young Southern soldier, hearing that his favorite sister was ill, determined to steal home to see her. He made his way through the lines, and Amen witmn signt ot tne oiu nomesteaa round the way blocked by a cordon of Union soldiers who were guarding the B. i O. Railroad. He had gotten so close to them that he was at first afraid that he had been seen, but he sank down in a held of wheat before they got sight ot him. He laid in the wheat field all day, trying to catch the attention of some of the folks about his father's house, but no jne came within sight. They were inside aeeping vigil at the bedside of the dying girl, and had no idea that the son and arother was so near. Neither did he <now that his sister's life was fast ebbing iway, and that she was piteously calling ror htm. Wnen darkness cane he easily evaded the Union soldiers and got into his home, only to learn that his sister vas dead, and that her last words were for him. ^One of the fights about She'pherdstown that is well remembered was on the 16tn >f July, 1863. There had been a tremenious downpour of rain, and the Confederates, who were in camp south of town, thought that there would be no trouble from the enemy, who were on the Maryland side of the river. A nu n ier of them came to town to see friends and the home tolks, and were enjoying themselves first rate, when simultaneously the sun cime jut and the village filled with Yankees vho had qaietly crossed the river. The Jnion solJiers were in rorce. and soon there was a lively ru ining fight along the <earneysville pike. There were a num>er of casualties, and it was during this engagement that the gallantColonel Drake was killed at Butler's woods, a couple of niles south of town. A granite monunent has lately beeiierected to ntr<< the place where he fell.^ ^Observer was recently tol J of an interesting incident of the late jeorge vV. Caton, who was one of the orivest and nost daringsoldiersfro n this co n nunity. \s he was heading to wards <e trneysville v\r. Caton's horse was shot under him and fell on his leg. Although he point-blank several tunes at a Union soldier who was riding him hown, he missed the fellow, who gave him a severe cut on the ear with Ins sabre. There was nothing to do but surrender, which Caton did with the best grace possible. He was not unmindful, however, of the possibility of making his escape, and he pretended to be much worst hurt than he really was. That leg got more aid nore painul, and it wis all thit he coild do to get oack to town, with the utnost assistance of his captor. He gave out entirely on the street, and fashioned him a pair of crutches, with which he managed to move slowly along. His captor was detailed to guard him until he could be sent on, and the two loafed around the old Lutheran and Reformed churches on East Main street. During the afternoon the Yankee began to get pretty hungry, when "Aunt" Julia Burke, an ardent Southern sympathizer, generously offered to give him something to eat. He gladly followed ler name, leavtn g nis neipieis prisoner! to await his return. The U lion soldier was no sooner out of sight thin Citon suddenly got better, and while none of the enemy was in sight he elm oed into the shallow old well that still may be seen in the middle of the street between the two churches. "Aunt Julia" kept the saldier as long as she could, and when he returned his prisoner had mysteriously disappeared. While search was being m \de for Caton, "Aunt Julia," who knew where he was hiding, seated herself on , the platform of the well, and warned all the Union men not to use the water, as it was very foul and not fit for man or beast. The prisoner remained in the , welluntil long after nightfall, when "Aunt" Julia" gave him the signal that the coast was clear, whereupon he crawled out and quietly made his way through the Reformed graveyard. He almost ran into twiWUnion pickets, but he dropped upon his hands and knees and crawled past them. They saw the dark object passing along the fence, and one inquired of the other if it was a dog or a man. Caton heard them, and while they were speculating he managed to get out ot their sight. In a few moments he was beyond observation, when he arose and made tracks for home, his lameness entirely gone. He spent the night at his home east of town, and next morning made his way toward Kearneysville and rejoined his command. The Confederates decided to have a little fun of their own this day, and nude a sudden and spirited attack on the Union forces who still held the town, running them into Maryland a bit faster than they themselves had been chased to Kearneysville the previous day. By a strange coincidence, George Caton captured the very man who had taken him prisoner less than twenty-four hours before. The Union man swore volubly when he learned how he had been tricked by his former captive. During this same fight a pathetic incident occurred. A Confederate soldier named Potts, riding horseback, saw a Union soldier running afoot in a desperate endeavor to avoid capture. He called to the fleeing man to stop no less than three times, but as he kept on, he fired at him. At the first shot the man fell forward on his face, dead. Potts descended from his horse and turned his victim over, when he was horrified to find that he was looking into the glazing eyes of his own brother. One brother had enlisted in the Union army and the other had gone with the South, and this wasthe first time that they had met. Potts gave an old colored man of the town five dollars to give his brother decent burial, a.'d then pressed on with his comrades, cut to the heart that the chances of war had made nim the slayer of his own brother^ Auditor Darst on Automobiles. Automobile owners throughout West Virginia, not thoroughly familiar with the laws relating to the running of automobiles, enacted at the recent session of the Legislature, are deluging the office of State Auditor John S. Darst with inquiries relative to the scope of the law requiring chauffeurs to pay an annual license fee of $2 to the State. "The impression has gone out," said Auditor Darst, "that the 1,590 automobile owners in West Virginia are required to take out a chauffeur's license, in addition to the annual license imposed by law, before they are allowed to operate their machines. This impression is erroneous. The new act, passed at the last session of the Legislature, and which I have mailed to the owner of every licensed automobile in the State, makes no such provision. This act merely requires a chauffeur?a person who operates an automobile as mechanic, employee or for hire?to register and pay to the State Auditor, an annual license fee of $2. This act does not apply to the owners of automobiles, or their families, unless they are chauffeurs, operating automobiles as mechanics, employes or for hire. This act will become effective on May 25th, and a chauffeur's license will be pro-rated from that time until July 1, the beginning of the new license year, so that the license tax of $10 imposed on each automobile and the chauffeur's license will become due on Julv 1st. The other law relating to automobiles passed at tne recent session of the Legislature is a reciprocal clause permitting licensed automobile owners from other States to operate a car in West Virginia, when such other States allow West Virginia owners of automobiles to drive cars in their State, without payment of the license tax. "I might add," concluded the Auditor, "that the automobile tags for the next license year, beginning July 1st, will not be sent out until about that date. Blank applications already have been mailed to owners of automobiles." *?? Charged with fraudulent use of the mails in inducing S. Riddell, of McCloud, W. Va., and other persons to invest in shares of the California Diamond Oil Company, Archie L. Wisner and his brother, Emmett S. Wisner, of New Pork, and John J. Myers, of San Francisco, were indicted by the Federal grand jury in New York. The three men operated as A. L. Wisner & Co., and following a raid on their offices on Fifth avenue the postal inspectors estimated that transactions in excess of $10,000,000 h,.d been carried on by the concern during the last few years. The Wisners aie locked up in New York and Myers is under arrest tn San Francisco. YOU TAKE NO RISK. Our Reputation and Money are Back of This Offer.

After a lapse of many years since the Democrats have been in control of Congress, the majority members of thS new House of Representatives are now overwhelmed with applications from Democrats from all over the country for positions under the coming session of Congress. And as applications have been made for probably a hundred times as many offices as there are offices to bestow, it follows that a large percentage of the applicants are doomed to disappointment. West Virginia looms up strong among the applicants for positions under the Democratic Congress, and W*st Virginians must prepare to be disappointed, for very few of them can hope to be appointed. Congressman Hamilton alone, who is the only West Virginia Congressman here yet, has something more than 200 applications for positions under the Congress. When it is remembered that there are only from 600 to 700 offices at the disposal of Congress and that there are 391 Congressmen all clamoring for some of these positions, it can readily be seen that of necessity many will be disappointed. Among the employes of the House, many are required to possess technical skili. There are engineers who are familiar with the type of machinery used in the capitol; indexing clerks who are familiar with the system of indexing the records and can keep them up in proper form from the start; clerks to committees who have been employed in the same positions tor many years under various administrations ; men the very nature of whose services require experience and whose places cannot be filled by inexperienced men ; and the result of all this is that the number of positions which can be disposed of is less than the number of employes by a good deal, ano me number of new appointees is correspondingly reduced. There are few West Virginians under Congress at the present time, and probably all of them will be replaced by Democrats, but at that there will scarcely be more than six or eight places to be apportioned to the State and it will mean not more than one or two to the Congressman at the most. So many of the faithful from the Mountain State will have to remain in the State and out ot the public service until the Democrats elect a President and have departmental positions to give out before getting a place in Washington. From reports which come to Washington ot the banquet given Senator Watson by his fellow-townsmen at Fairmont last week, it is evident that Democrats and Republicans of that town alike resented the imputation that he is not a bona fide resident of Fairmont. They turned out to the number of 500, which was the extreme capacity of the room where the banquet was held, and regardless of politics claimed the new Senator as a fellowcitizen and resident of Fairmont. The banquet was presided over by Emmett M. Showalter, a Republican and formerly a Federal office holder, and Senator Scott Meredith, who led the fifteen Senators from Charleston to Cincinnati during the last session of the legislature, was one of the speakers. John W. Mason, former Commissioner of Internal Revenue under a Republican administration, sent a letter saying he had had personal acquaintance with six generations of the Watson family and had never known any thing but good of any of them. Senator Chilton was present at the oanquet and made a speech, as did Congressman John W. Davis, from the first district. Senator Watson made a very pleasing little speech in which he spoke feelingly of his appreciation of the tribute paid to him by his townsmen. On Tuesday of next week Congress will convene in one of the most important sessions which has been held since the Civil War. Legislation of vast importance to the common people and the consumer is expected and it is believed that such legislation in the interests of the people may be enacted that the Republican Senate and the Republican President will feel compelled to agree with the House. West Virginia Democrats are to take an important part in this legislation and a part that is unusual and to which they nave been unaccustomed tor many years. The Senators and members of Congress are expected to be here within a few days, and by the end of this week it is expected the entire delegation will be h re. It is believed the West Virginia d rlegation will very soon agree upon a g.Mieral policy and act together in prac ti .ally all matters and that it will agree upon other matters from time to time as they arise. No such factional tights as have divided the Republican delegation are expected and the Senators and Congressmen are expected to act in perfect harmony on all matters of interest to the State or the Democratic party. The injection of politics into the selection of State mine inspectors is bitterly denounced by Dr. J. A. Holmes, of Washington, director ot the new Bureau of Mines, recently created by Congress. He urges that mine inspectors be examined by a non-political board of mining experts and that they be appointed from applicants who show the highest skill and the best experience in the work. Strict observance of rules and regulations for the conduct of mines is urged, alo lg with punishment for any person violates the rules, whether he be mine worker, mine owner or mine inspector. A continuance of the Federal investigation as to the cause of mine accidents and methods for their prevention is advised and the prompt distribution of all such information on these lines as can be obtained. The differences between the West Virginia method and the city method of dressing poultry for market has been the subject of a thorough investigJtion by the 3ureau of Chemistry under the Department of Agriculture, and a report on the natter has been nrenared and nnhli?h*?H , , ? r.V.MT..V-f which those interested may obtain through their Representative in Congress. The pamphlet is entitled "The Comparative Rate of Decomposition in drawn and undrawn Market Poultry." The finding is that poultry dressed for narket as most of it is done in West Vir4inia, with the head and feet removed and the viscera removed, decomposes most rapidly of all poultry sent to market, and that the undrawn poultry, with only the feathers removed, decomposes more slowly than poultry which has been either wholly or partly eviscerated.

J' A dwelling owned by Mrs. William Oygerly, ontheeastside erf the Shenadoah ^ river, in this county, was destroyed by fire one night last week. There's joyful news for the Hag Mail 0 right in Hagerstown. The brewery there has just put in eight new steel beer tanks, ( each of which holds 150 gallons.

The horses have just arrived from France, 1 where they have been for several sea- n sons. They both won fame on the c American race track few years back. ri Capt. Bud Edwards, for many years a y captain on the Chesapeake and Ohio ca- t) nal, fell from his boat at Great Falls, near j Washington, Tuesday evening and was M drowned. As the boat appeared at the p lock at Great Falls on its way out from i( Washington, Captain Edwards was (| aroused from a nap. As he attempted to t| arise it is thought he lost his balance and fell intothecanal. He sank before assistance could reach him. Captain Edwards had ji been plying the canal for about twenty n years. His home wasat Dickerson. He p was about 40 years old and unmarried. An act of cruelty rarely equaled was | perpetrated on a horse that was hired q last week by Leslie McCleary, of Way- S( nesboro, and driven to Quincy, near Mont Alto. Mr. Cleary hitched the horse a alonp the road and later drove home. ? For two days the horse did not eat, ex- " hibited signs of sickness and bled at the mouth. Then an examination showed that a cord had been tied around the horse's tongue and passed under its jaw ? and had cut deep into the tongue, which was enormously swollen. The deed had been done by an unknown miscreant while the horse stood hitched by the roadside. E S A terrible tragedy occurred at the little v village of Oroscio, on the Swiss-Italian frontier, between Locarno and Lugano, t; A pretty girl, aged 20 years, was engaged 1 to a young and well-to-do Italian named 8 Consonni, but suddenly fell ill, and died f fifteen days later, her body being buried 0 last Sunday in the village churchyard. On Thursday the guardian was horrified ^ to find the grave and the coffin open, and 0 the heart of the girl cut out and missing. ?j Her fiance, Consonni, was arrested and n accused, and he confessed to the act, sta- t! ting that the heart of the girl was his and F nobody would take it from him.

At the suggestion of the International | >unday School Association, the ministers f Shepherdstown ceiled a meeting of the jymen of the various churches, some our weeks ago, and aoout twenty men I athered and discussed the advisability j f a home visitation. The purpose of j his movement is that every church and Sunday school may have an accurate rec- j rd of those to whom they have a right I o minister and to invite to the house of | iod. j As a preparation for a system of con- i inuous visitation, it has been found that fie best plan is to enlist the co-operation >f each local congregation, and by rep- I esentations from each church and Sunlay school, visit every home on a single fternoon. This will secure from the lead of every house a declaration of delominational and local church prefernce. A card recording such preference k ill be handed to the pastors entitled to hem. Every person will then be placed inder some pastoral care. The laymen interested organized themelves into an executive committee to tand sponsor for the movements and the lergymen of the town were appointed n advisory committee. A district comnittee of seven men, representing each hurch, laid the town off into seven disricts, each in charge of a district. A vistors' committee was appointed to eniist lie visitors for the one afternoon's work. All the details for the home visitation re about completed, and Saturday afteroon, April 8th, from 2 to 4 o'clock, is he time fixed upon. A general meeting of all committees nd all persons interested is called for 4onday night, April 3rd, at 7.30 o'clock, or the completion of final details.
