THERE WILL BE GREAT THINGS mati on the 8th and 14th instant. The big questions will be the wage contract of the coal miners; and it would be right well if audit committees were organized that we might henceforth hear less of treasurers of local unions going astray with the funds of their order. THE PHILADELPHIA STRIKE certainly did paralyze the entire Quaker city, but the state militia quickly prevented the continuance of rioting. It seems that no effort was made toward .arbitration, and many will be the lives .lost as a result of such prevention of what usually results in sorrow and sadness ,to untold families. ARM1STEAD ABRAHAM LILLY the coming Congressman from the Fifth Congressional district of West Virginia^ Armistead, the patrician; Abraham, the-fathor-of-a-multitude, and Lilly the purest emblem of Easter to be worn by the fathers and mothers, sons and daughters, wives and sweethearts on the Easter morn twenty-four days from today,~to-be-emblematie not: only of the corning blessed season but also of the recognized purity of the Raleigh candidate for honors congressional. Here is offered a patrician, a father of the multitude and a representative of a great state, a pure man, unblemished, seeking-the peoples-suffrage,—He shall get it. It is his. Here is a man in whose patrician hands our government may safely rest—a man of noble blood. Here is a maker of laws by natural instinct; a protector and father of the people of a great State; young, but has been put in the balance and not found wanting; a captain whose army of the Fifth will follow in arms to victory tinder his watchful care; one who shall henceforward be called conductor and guide. And here you have beyond question a Lilly undefiled, untouched^by rude hands, unblemished as the flowers that come with the patroness of light and spring. With greetings of Raleigh county we hail you, LILLY, the coming Montgomery county, Va., • Sept. 15, 182C, departed this life Feb. 17, 1910. His remains were quietly laid in the Trump cemetery near Bolt. Mr. Trump moved to this county with parents about the year 1846. He was married to Sarah Cazort in the year 1S5J, which proved to be a happy union until her death three years last December, since that time he made his home with his son H. J. Trump. He located at Bolt soon after his marriage where he resided until his death. He was the father of ten children, five of whom survive him. He had been a constant, faithful member of the Missionary Baptist church since 1866. ' He leaves two brothers,. B. S. and Henry Trump, and one sister, Mrs. G. W. Shumate, two sons and three daugh-- ters, and a host of friends. SENATOR SCOTT SANGUINE of \ Congressman from the Fifth. Hail! re-election is no surprise to the Raleigh j ARMISTEAD ABRAHAM LILLY.

Contributed Editor Raleigh Herald: I see in the Raleign Register of Feb. 3 that "a par-, ty is needed that is going to stand for state rights." --Such IS the republican party. "We need a party that does not de '•. pend upon the fabricated virtues of old , Abe Lincoln." . | Such has killed the democratic party j and made the republican party loom up over the democrats—as—large as the : lion is above the rabbit. [ The Register said, "let the democrat- : ic party nominate men of genuine stam- j ina and ability for every public office; j men honest and conservative who can neither be bribed by truth nor freight- ened with the clatter of tinj horns. Then_ victory as it comes will come to stay and will be an ultimate blessing to, the nation. The democratic party is a j real one. Be steady boys, 'tis but the ; same old elephant with the lion tamer: in Africa, and God save the China clos-,' et." • Such gospel does the democratic pars ty preach.

Because they have not got any issue but what is dead—dead to free trade, dead to 16 to 1, dead to every issue; that they bring out. So we will take the county during the last election. 7'he democrats claimed The season of year will soon be here when, you will want something in our line. Come to see us.

Fayette Kidd, whose announcement for commissioner of the county court of this county appears in this issue, is a man that needs no recommendation to our people from us. He is too ?cll and favorably known for us to add anything in his behalf. In the first campaign between McKinley and Bryan in 1896, Rev. Fayette Kidd was on the republican ticket ,in this county for Assessor. This was at nent, Mr. ,C. J. Hollandsworth, was going to contest his election. After a hot contest the democrats won.
