j. SLIDBVLBROWN Editor and Proprietor. March 28, 0 I The late ex-President Harrison had 540,000 life insurance. He had four policies of 510,000 each in as many different companies. It is said that I)r.

Thomas F. Lanham, of Newburg and Grafton, is a candidate for Congressman shoes. It is our opinion however that Alston will want to wear them clear out himself. Hon. Thomas E.

Davis, of Grafton, who takes charge of the office of Collector of Internal Revenue for this State on April ist, has sent into Gov. White his resignation as State Senator for this Senatorial district, composed at present of the counties of Monongalia, Preston and Taylor. It is said that President Diaz, of Mexico, is very ill and liable to die at any time. His illness is due to arterial atheroma or heart trouble, brought on by long years of excessive physical and mental labor, and close application to the affairs of state. Paul I Bicester Ford, the author of several entertaining books, like Meredith," and the and of two instructive works, the Papers" and the is just home from Italy, where he and his bride have been spending two or three agreeable months.

The newspapers have for some time been trying to get up a war between Russia and England, but the Bear and Bull seem inclined to lie down together in peace, after growling and bellowing around a little to amuse and impress the smaller nations. Now the daily papers are trying to get up a fight between Japan and Russia over the eastern complications, each country afraid of the other getting the most loot. As long as the great powers could make it pay by standing together and robbing China, they got along ail right, but now that they have stolen and looted from China about all they could get hold of, they have fallen out among themselves and are sassing each other, and talking war, and parading around with chips on their not much danger of any of them fighting man of their own and where there is a chance of getting whipped. Now that the reports are all in, and compiled and published, it is found that the wheat crop for 1900 was nearly two millions of bushels short of the crop for 1899. All the leading wheat-growing countries show a decrease.

The United States leads in production and in the shortage. Russia comes next, and then British India. Spain shows an increase for last year. In Russia and Germany the rye crop was enormous, the former country leading the world. The dead-lock in the Nebraska legislature over the election ol two United States senators from that state remains unbroken, in spite of the telegrams and letters from Mark Hanna, trying to dictate to the Republican members, who arc in the majority, but badly split and unable to come together.

Hanna, as the big boss of the party, has been trying to settle the fight, and he even called McKinley into it, but the westerners are rather independent, and refuse to listen to Mark or to Mack either. It is now given out that Hon. James M. Guffey, of Pittsburg, and Hon. George C.

Sturgiss, of Mor- I gantown, gave the 56,000 to purchase the fine pipe organ for the University. The matter had so far been kept quiet, but as the press of I the state had criticised the matter, Alleging that the organ had been I purchased by President Raymond I with state funds appropriated by the legislature for other purposes in connection with the University it was thought best to make the facts known. The Board of Regents of the Uni- versity held a farewell Morgantown recently to uu their business, before a new board comes in, April first. While there I all the members except three served with official notice of a 5 i' .000 damage suit brought aeai- ut them by Dr. f.

Hartman for deposing him from his position in the I Diversity, without cause or notice. The three members. Davis Ratluam and Brown who m. posed to the action of the Board and voted against dismissing Hartigan, are exempt from the suit. TIIK BEATTV CASK.

The ease of John Wesley Beatty will come before the State Pardon Board at their regular meeting April and at Mouodsville and his attorney Hon. P. J. Crogao, will be on hand to present his plea and petition for a commutation of the sentence from hanging to life imprisonment. Mr.

Crogan has a petition with over a thousand names on it asking for this change of sentence. The Pardon Board was in special session iccently and considered other cases and it was published in the papers that rase could not be acted upon because the Prosecuting Attorney of tt is county had not been notified of the application as the required. This was a mis as case was not presented to the Board at that session. In the first place neither his attorney nor the attorney had any notice of the meeting as it was a special one until they read in the papers that the Board was in session ana then it was too late for them to get there till the session was over. And in the second place it was not necessary for the case to be presented till the regular meeting in April which will be ten days before the end of respite, and both his and the attorney having full notice will be present as they would have been at the late scssiou had they been notified of the meeting in time.

No difference what the so called docs the matter is finally settled by the Governor. The Hoard merely investigates and looks into the cases and makes recommendations to the Governor who can adopt or reject ai he pleases. Attorney-General Griggs has tendered his resignation to the President, to take effect March 31. He will resume the practice of law, and it is said will be connected with a law firm in New York and one in Jersey City. Mr.

Griggs has made more money for several years in his law practice than hts salary as a Cabinet ofticor. lie is one of the greatest corporation attorneys in the country and the President was criticised severely for appointing him Attorney-General of the United States when he was attorney for a number of large corporations and trust companies and of course could never be induced to enforce the laws against trusts. It is said P. C. Knox, the great corporation attorney of Pittsburg, has been selected to succeed Griggs.

lie was a student at the University at Morgantown when a young man and was expelled by the old fogy President, Dr. Martin, because He went to see a play of East Lynne. About eighteen representatives of various bridge companies have been in Kingwood the past week to present their claims and bids to the Committee of the County Court for building the bridge across Cheat river at Rowlesburg. The first plans and specifications had to be rejected when the survey was made and new plans drawn up as it was found that instead of being 480 feet long and two spans it would have to be 580 feet long and three spans. I his will take two piers besides the heavy abutments and approaches at each end.

This will make the stonework quite an item in the cost but it will make a better bridge and the iron need not be so heavy. The cost will likely be about $20,000 by the time the whole business is completed. 1 he will of the late ex-President Harrison cuts his son, Col. Russel H. Harrison, off with nothing except some few things that belonged to his mother.

The family relations between the ex President and his children by his first wife had been very much strained since the second marriage, to the niece of his first wife and Col. Russel and Mrs. of McKee) did not come to see their father till after his death and would not stop at their home at all on account of the second Mrs. ilatrlson. Her husband provided very for her and her daughter, giving them about half of his estate, valued at almost a half million dollars.

The Hoard of of the University have accepted the resignation of Jerome JJ. Raymond as President, and the latter with his wife sailed last Saturday form New York city for London, where they will remain till fall, when they will return to Chicago, where the Doctor will resume his duties in connection with the extension work of the Chicago University. The suit of Dr. Hartig.m for £25,000 damages is to come up for trial at the June term of Cirf 'lit court, and Dr. Raymond will not be present to defend it, the ease may go against hirn by default.

Dr. attorneys have attached everything Raymond has at Morgantown, to hold it till the suit is derided. Col. W. W.

IN TIIE Preston County Hold ter Itoj Writes of 1IU Life in the Army There. Hay monel Rode heaver has received a letter from his son, who is hack again in the Philippine Islands, and we herewith give itesof interest to our readers; Sumo, Feb. 3, iyoi.

Dear letter of December 10th received, and it found me well and-gctling along all right. We were ordered to China last June and we made the trip O. K. and arc now back in the Philippines again, "here we Were 011c ago. We IitmI went to Cavite, then we were sent to this place.

We have been very busy here since die first of this year. They arc prisoners of all the natives caught outsids of the town, and we have been going through the tains three and four times a week. We burn everything. We have destroyed all the rice and burnt a lot of shacks and have about forty prisoners. About two weeks ago the insurgents came down in the mountains about 200 yards from us and commenced firing into our camp.

It was about 4 in the morning, and we all turned out in a hurry but as soon as we fired a few shots we heard their bugle, and then they were gone. We went out that morning but found nothing. Most all our trips have been at night and over very rough trails, where only one man can pass at a time. There are some very steep mountains about here, so it is very hard work, and we are not getting the best of grub. It is mostly canned meats, salmon and bacon.

We have been eating hardtack since Christmas, only at when we buy bread from the natives. From the way things look here we may be here until next fall, but it is uncertain. We have no regular pay here, but I will send you some money as soon as we get paid, and then you can pay it on that lot ami get a deed. Yes, you may do as you like about a house. Anything you do on the lot will be all right with me.

this place is only a small village, and there is no post ofiice, so I do not know just how I will send you the money. I may have to go to Manilla, but I will do the best I can ami will write you again soon, I hope this finds you all well. As I sit by the window writing, I see big bunches of green bananas growing in our yard, and plenty of ripe cocoanuts. I wish you were all here to see this place, but it is very common to us. rite soon.

My love and best wishes to you all. From your son, Geo. E. Rodehkaver, Co. 1st Iiat'Pn.

Marines, Cavite, Philippine Islands. When Rev. Thomas Aldred, a Methodist minister of Nashville, came ashore from the steamship Oceanic, in New Y-ork last week, he was furious. moral influence prevailed on this he said, pernicious. Jlhe chief amusement in the smoking room is betting and open gambling.

Night after night I saw the passengers playing for high stakes. In the second cabin reading saloon is was disgusting to see young passcngeis of both sexes kissing and embracing. Every dark corner had its couple making love most scandalously, and liberties were taken which would not be permitted in any parlor. In the retired portions of the decks it was just as bad. I was not permitted to have a religious service conducted on Sunday.

I was told by the steward that it could not be allowed and Sunday evening I saw dancing in the In this issue will be found some more of II. II. poetry. It is rather long but the piece was written for the Epworth League at Reedsville and read before that body and is published by special request. I he Journal published a poem some time since for Mr.

Reed and as it was full of mistakes the poet is very angry about it and declares that the Journal can't spell worth a cent and that Thb Argus can beat them spelling all to pieces. Hence the anxiety of Bro. Reed to have his article appear in our columns and as he has heen in to sec us about it every week for the past month and there is a general demand from the Reedsville section for its publication, we have finally given the celebrated poetry space in this issue. James Lane Allen, the famous Kentucky novelist, author of "The Lhmr Invisible," and other success es, left last week for New York, his present home, after a stay of several iyi with old friends at classic Bethany, where, hy the way, Mr. All.

was several years ago professor of Latin at Bethany college. While in Bethany he was the guest of Miss Pendleton, sister of I)r. W. K. Pendleton, formerly president of the coHege.

He was heartily greeted by many old friends. ANOTHER CLEAN SWEEP. The Charleston Gazette says A peculiar phase of a recent retirement from office has been developed at the West Virginia capitol. hen Attorney General Freer took charge of the rooms in the capitol building assigned to the occupant of the office to which he had been called, he naturally expected to find there the usual number of desks, chairs and other office fixings necessary to the proper administration of the advisory branch of the State department of justice. He had looked in the office once or twice before taking the oath, and had thought he descried therein the paraphernalia in such cases usually made and provided, and, like the guest who used the tooth brush found in the wash room at the hotel, he thought they belonged to the house.

But he found that he was mistaken for about the time he went in his predecessor weut out, and desks, chairs, pens, ink, and the hundred and one things used and needed in an office of the kind went with him. In other words, there was not enough furniture left to the new Attorney General for him to begin to do business with, and about his first official act was to lay in a new supply. A day or two after the inauguration a Gazette man visited Mr. Freer in his office, and found him sitting arnid the ruins and desolation that made one think of the clean sweep of an Oklahoma cyclone. would like to ask you to sit down, siad the Attorney General, as you sec, there is no chair for you.

About the last thing to be carried away was a typewriter desk, which cx-Assistant Attorney General Anderson said when he came to remove it, belonged to a young lady clerk in one of the other departments, from whom he had borrowed it. right, take said Mr. rcer; that, lake anything, take that, everything, just so you take the The looting of the Attorney office seems to stand alone as an accompaniment of the recent hegira, and if it has pny precedent in the same line it has not yet been discovered. I borons li. Reed, former Speaker of the National House of Representatives, in an interview published in the American, gives a very cogent reason for his retirement from politics.

It appears from what he says that he is opposed to the Administration at ushington on almost detail of its foreign policy. Having opinions of that sort it would have been impossible for him to continue his leadership at the Capitol while President McKinley was in the White House. In the interview in question Mr. views are set forth as follows On the great questions now before the people Mr. Reed has decided opinions, and does not hesitate to express them.

He reaffirmed most emphatically yesterday his opposition to the policy of the Administration. In his opinion Dewey should have sailed away from Manila after sinking fleet, leaving the government of the islands to the Filipinos. Cuba and Porto Rico, too, should be left to their own devices. The present policy toward Cuba he regards as a piece of hypocrisy. Mr.

Reed, like the late cx-presiI dent Harrison, is an ardent friend of the Hoers. i sympathize with any people on said he, "who are struggling for freedom." Asked whether he thought the ilipinos capable of self- government he said think every people is capable of self-government. It may not be the kind we have or want, but it is the kind that is satisfactory and suffices for them." The Hoard of Regents of the University, in session at Morgantown last week, adjourned Thursday after electing Dr. H. Reynolds acting president, at an additional salary of fifty dollars a month.

He held this position before Dr. Raymond came very acceptably. His selection gives universal satisfaction. The resolution accepting resignation commends him for zeal, untiring energy and ability. Regent Davis precipitated a row by a preamble and resolution to the effect that Hon.

George C. Sturgiss had falsified the minutes in regard to Prof. removal, by placing one thousand words in the record, in place of about fifty con tained in the resolution as pasted. He moved to expunge. was lost by a vote of two to two, the others not voting.

Mrs. Hetty Green was in Boston the other day, and when invited to attend a theater declined, saying that, though she is the richest woman in this country, she any clothes good enough." WHITHER. llrarj Thunder and Rain tor.caM by Rev. Irhl II.

Hlekft. The perturbing power of vernal equinox reaches to the mid- the month; the Venus equinox i I is central on the roth, being a disI turbing factor from the latter part of March to near the end of April, while the Jupiter disturbance is central on April 22ml, covering the whole month and year with its ag giavating influence over all terres- I trial meteorology. These three i extra causes being combined in their influence through much of April, the disturbances will not only be i more general and severe, during the regular storm periods, but these periods will be prolonged so as to overlap each other at times. I he first regular storm period for April has three causes for expecting storms, aside frotn the planetary causes mentioned above. This period runs from March 31st to April the 5th, with Moon on the celestial equator the 1st, full on the 3rd and in apogee on the 4th.

Very high temperature in most parts, with low barometer and rain, hail and thunder, may be expected promptly on or next to the 1st. Storminess with heavy April rains will continue up to about the 4th. Dangerous, tornadic storms need not surprise careful readers of these forecasts on or touching Monday the 1st, to Wednesday the 3rd. A reliable barometer, and other unfailing indications, will precede any and all dangerous storms that inay possibly arise at this or any other time. Very cool weather will on the heels of this first storm period, with possibly late snow northward and frosts in many sections, even central to southward, from about the 4th to 7th.

Watch your tender plants. On and touching the 8th and 9th will fall a marked change to warmer the barometer will react to readings and heavy April rains, hail and thunder will visit many sections in their general march from west to cast. Barometer will rise rapidly behind these reactionary storms, bringing quite cool winds from west and north, and frosty nights in northern directions. 1 lie 12th to the 18th constitutes another regular storm period, containing equatorial passage of the Moon on the 15th and new Moon in perigee on the i8th. The crisis of this period will fall on or next to Monday the 15th about which date look for electrical storms attended by hail, rain and dangerous winds.

Low barometer, high temperature and daily paroxysms of wind and April downpours, will most probably continue over the conjunction of Moon and Sun on the 18th and into the reactionary storm period on the 19th, 20th and 21st. While under ordinary circumstances only normal April showers would fall at this time, on account of numerous causes prevailing, storms in all probability will prove widespread and heavy. reasonable precaution against disastrous hail storms should be taken at this and other April periods. Another dash of high barometer, cold winds and frosty nights northward, will be the order behind the storm conditions of this period. The last week in April is also covered with a Mercury period, the same being central on Monday the 29th.

This throws the regular Vulcan storm period from the 24th to the 28th fully within the Mercury influence. From about Tuesday the 25 to Sunday the 28th inclusive, 11 will OC Wise to anticipate storms of much energy with heavy rain and hail over wide localities during the progress of the general storm conditions eastward. The Mercury periods, as a rule, arc characterized by much cloudiness and drizzling rains in warm weather, and sleet when the temperature is low. In extreme northern parts there is a possibility of sleet and snow during this last April period. But all along the south side of low barometric presure, look for heavy vernal rains, I culminating in electrical storms about the passage of the Moon over the equator on the 28th.

We predict that April will bring many extremes of very warm and quite cool war with northerly and southerly currents. Rains will be sufficient generally, amounting to cloudbursts wet for low I amis. The Special Committee of the County Court that has the matter of receiving bids for building the steel bridge across Chpat river at I Rowlesburg, has decided not to! award the contract this week, but to refer ti whole miller to the full Court which convenes next Mom! iy. The Committee has preparer! a report and the Court will likely decide the matter and we will give further particulars next week. There were fifteen bids from bridge firms all over the country.

Most of the agents have left but some of them will remain till the contract is awarded. SIX DOLLARS REWARD. In the last issue of the Commoner under the heading, Dollars W. J. liryan replies to the letter of Grover Cleveland to the Crescent Democratic Club of Baltimore.

Mr. Bryan refers to Mr. Cleveland's expression, return to Democratic and offers the former President $6 for a definition of what he means. Mr. Bryan then continues the battle was on between a republic and au empire, between a democracy and a plutocracy, between bimctalisin and monometalism, he (Cleveland)refused to say a word or lift a hand in behalf of the rank and file for whom he now expresses such an affectionate solicitude.

As soon as the election was over he came forth from his seclusion and made the air vocal with his suggestions. to be inspired by a purer Democracy and boasting of a superior virtue, he began to offer unsolicited advice to the party to which he once belonged. He is like the soldier who was discovered as in war and invincible in To desertion of the party organization atul betrayal of the principles of the party he adds ostentatious pretense of interest in the plain people, while lie conceals his ideas in ponderous and platitudinous phrases. he will clearly and candidly define the Democratic principles about which lie is so prone to talk the people can decide fot themselves whether he is the same Mr. Cleveland who turned the Treasury over to a foreign syndicate and intrusted J.

Funeral services were held in Parkersburg at 9:30 a. m. Tuesday, and the burial at Clarksburg. The deceased was born in Ireland in 1S34, and came to this country while young. He was graduated from St.

TOM McAVAY'S LIQUOR HOUSE, Most Virginia Charles h. Iladdox, Postmaster at Cario, Ritchie county, announces that he has accepted the appointment of Warden of the Penitentiary to succeed Col. Steel A. Hawk, which was offered him over a month ago by Governor White. It seems strange that Warden Hawk should be turned out after the Republican papers of the State have done so much bragging about the sp'endtd administration of affairs at the 1 emtentiary and how it has been made self supporting under Hawks management.

It was about the only State Institution we have that was not asking the legislature for a large appropriation to run it. It may be that Col. Hawk wants to quit or is promised something else. Adulteration, the crying evil of the age is in the liquor business. Stumn Seating with John Cumberland.
