As to Warner, he is unspeakable, and I think is as now -to take care of as he was'two ago.

Suffice to say, it to confirm Warner, and the vote 'should be made public, he would inherit the hatred of every honest, self-respecting coal miner, nofonly in this state, but wherever Warner was known. Now, if you had one drop of honest union blood in your unclean carcass you would have signed your name to your dirty, lying harangue against Sam Montgomery, the friend. You are not a You do not live at Newburg, and you evidently are not a citizen of Preston county. If you were you would not tell such palpable lies as to say that failed to get a single delegate in Preston The truth is, the coal miners generally remained true to Senator Montgomery and secured for him the only delegates that he did get in Preston county. you fraud do think you can fool the coal tniof this county by bringing up ime old cry of it Sam Montgomery? You rard.

If you know, as you claim, ft secured his nomination the free use of B. O. Rhy were you afraid to sign your tme? An honest union man is Jfer afraid to sign his name to any tide he publishes, and a union liner never fails to do so when he If tails one whom he believes to be i enemy of organized labor. Every thinking man in this country knows that the that hates Sam Montgomery, like 1 hate a coward, would have exposed him and forced hit resignation from the senate long ago. If he had secured his nomination Itate senator fraud and the free use of money; if your charges werd true, Senator Montgomery would now be a disgraced man and an outcast instead of one of the strongest and most influential members of the senate.

Any fair-minded man who follows I the coutse of Preston's senator in I 1905 will gladly support him for ref election if he is a candidate, unless he should forsake the plain people election, and this is not though: for a minute by people who know the man. But the intelligent coal miners fully understand that he will not be able to please his traducers unless they can control his every action, and this is not likely. Miner" fraud, do you think we real coal are so ignorant you can cry "Fellow Servants Bill," and turn any miner against Sani? We all know this bill did not mention the coai miners or give them any pro'ection whatever. More than this, you lie when you say "That Sam Montgomery voted against the fellow servants bill." Now, if you really lived at Newburg and were an honest miner, you would be trying to organize and bet ter the condition of the coal miners in and around Newburg, and not tff to defend that scavenger Warner hom the governor picked up in and appointed mine inspector, delcly ignoring the claims of sands of honest, decent, Chrisooal miners who are citizens of West Virginia. "Fraud" had better stow; the miners are on to your ssedftess.

Major David Stemple Dies at Ripe Old Age. SUFFERED STROKE OP PARALYSIS Well-known in Proston and Adjoining Counties-Laid to Best at Old Home. Major David Stemple, of Amboy, a pioneer of county, was stricken with paralysis on December 20, which resulted in his death the following Saturday. He was more than yo years old. The funeral took place from his late home and the remains interred in the Lutheran cemetery.

Major Stemple was born near Hagerstown, July 12, 1816, his parents having emigrated from Germany and settled in Maryland. When a young man Major Stemplc located at the old town of Aurora, vftierc he built and conducted one of the famous obi fashioned wajside inns on the Northwestern turnpike, then the chief route of travel through the country, where drovers and the hundreds of commercial men made their over night stops. He continued this business until the railroad was built through the country, which destroyed the turnpike as a highway for genursl travel. Major Stemple then purchased a fine tract of land comprising some 400 acres about a mile from Aurora; Today this farm is one of the finest in that section. Prior to the war he was made a major of V11 ginia militia, which gave him the title hy which he was known throughout many sections of West Virginia.

He was twice married and is survived by a wife and 14 children. At the celebration of the ninetieth anniversary of his birth it was learned that Major Stemple was the only survivor of his and father of four generations. There were then 92 descendants. The name of Major Stemple as always synonymous with everything that was honorable. His 90 years of life were of the upright, dependable, reliable kind that sits as a jeweled crown on'the head of the fathers when their years of usefulness has expired.

A man peculiarly fond of home life, his home was his abiding place, preferable above all other places the world had to offer His greatest ambition was to raise his family of children to mor.ble manhood and womanhood, and in this his life work was the success that it so richly deserved to be. He was a Democrat of the old school and held several offices of trust and honor. The old Rising Sun Hotel spoken of above was, perhaps, the most famous hostelry in the state and has been written up time and again and spoken of in several books. This paper published an interesting sketch of it a few years since und this history was also published in booklet form. The surviving sons and daughters are: David, P.
