Camden connection with the Oil interests which Centre Al out 1 Arken Clurg has be a the subject of much Adverse criticism the pm it Kkt deem it but just to its readers who compose the intelligence and the leading spirit of West Virginia to Lay before them the information contained in the two articles hereto annexed. One of them is from a leading Republican Piper edited by a Republican i governor and the other is from a demo cratic paper which has made for itself a consistent record of Stern Objio Sittou to the aggression of Large monies monopolies. The statements in these articles Are doubtless entirely reliable and they will go far to vindicate a business Man who has been most grossly and shame fully vilified because his friends saw tit to bring him Forward As a candidate for a Public posit too. The views of Exoo Vernok 8tevenson upon the leading senatorial can dilute by qua i ill cat Ion a for the position the Mequia Itea that fit a Man for the Senate where the Oil c a a or. Camden Cornea from i fast record Aud w hat my be expected of Iii 10 the future. I Ark rib tiry Taie journal. A e publish elsewhere in the journal of Lii we Ati article taken from the Ritchie Ivy Wal in vindication of or. Cam Jen in the particular named. What the to rut save of the general demobilization of the Oil business prior to the organic Tiou of tie Camden consolidated Oil company we know to be i True. We also know that with the improved methods of transportation the system of Cash payments inaugurated by the Camden consolidated Oil com Pany and with the economies which have been introduced into the Oil Busi Ness the interests of the producers of Oil have been largely improve and that this Community durum the Ion Depres Sion has been Able to pull through almost insurmountable d , in the Oil regions where the facts Are prop Erly known the benefits we have enumerated Are properly appreciated and due credit is Given to the parties who have instituted the new system. There we hear of no complaints on these Points. It is but natural that the business of Onens of the Camden consolidated i in company the company with w hich or. Camden is connected should feel sore and in Home instances soured at the Suc Cess of their rivals. So far i we can learn the Only opposition which or. Camden encounter of the kind mentioned by the into rat. Is from his competitors in business. In interested men men who have a fair estimate of the facts largely discount the personal Ani mus which underlies the criticisms of or. Camden through the correspondence of the Wheeling intr Ali Ove the Mere personalities which always tin for Una Tell come to tie surface in such Content it is Juite natural where private interests dictate for men to oppose business competitors in everything hut the Public Are slow to sympathise with this sort of opposition. Karnest men protest and regret that Mankind Are so constituted. But nevertheless the Wor d moves. We take it that what republicans want to know in View of their inability to est l their first Choice is whether or. Camden or any other Union progressive i Democrat is a lit Iuan to represent the Eup a of West Virginia in the United state Senate whether he can by i portion training and oppo Tuai lies bring to she St it Honor capital and population to develop our great and in old resources whether he with divest himself of the in Lueins of rings and meet the problem which is As be met in the spirit of Reform and jus Lin Justice o the eople and the rail toads themselves whet her lie is in 4 pm eating our a Iron Salt Petro Leum Wool Ami Oiler j r shirts. Raw and Ina Emoor tic congressman from Ohio or. Hunt has introduced free Trade resolutions into the lower House of Congreve whether he is in reality in favor of eur loiter � to e Law both North and South so that nil men White Ami Black alike Snail protected in their i evil and political if Inch a in sinocrat can be Lound we doubt whether Luem Wra of the legislature will stand much upon Cere Mony in giving him their support As being the nest Hest thing to to in default of lie inc urn Bleto elect one of their own party an event now improbable. We had hoped that the democratic aspirants for the senator ship would have favored us with their news on the questions hinted at above. We under stand from or. Camden s friends that he takes advanced ground on All questions in Winch our people Are interested on the arid transportation and the Southern question and the improvement of our mate by railroads tie has Al ready spoken in favor of Reform in the transportation Ayster spoken in such terms As to be almost Radical on the subject. He is known All Over the state As a progressive Democrat and in its earlier history favouring the flick amendment we Are not advised As to his views on the Tariff question but if he is the Busi Ness Man we take him to be he Mutt see that without a protective Tariff West Virginia will never lie what she ought to be. Lie cannot Ion survive As a politician if he Antsis Oniris her interest in this direction. We regret that we can not speak with More authority on this Point. If we had intelligent information Here of a favourable character we would have Little hesitation in saying that or Ca Injen among others that we could name always remembering that the Choice Mutl come from the democratic party at Tia time fulfils in a marked degree the conditions which make him a suitable Man to represent West Ginia in the Senate of the United states. Hon. J. To. Zamoth. The Atoka mad upon that gentleman he Baa to official connection with the Standard Oil co. Batory of the Camden Oil co. Review a what or. Camdon Haa Don for West Virginia. The Kitchlew Democrat there seems to be an extraordinary Effort making by the enemies of or. Camden to injure Hia chances of election to the United states Senate. We have Seldom seen a Man of his recognized Worth High character and generous impulses More persistently pursued. We understand that marked copies of certain newspapers containing attacks upon him Are a a thematically mailed to the members of the legislature with the Hope of poisoning their minds against him. This in Siddons system of attack is an insult to the intelligence of the members of the legislature and and we Are much mistaken if it does not do or. Camden More Good than it does him harm. Our people love truth and fairness. And when they Bee it published that he is vice president of the Standard Oil company with a salary of f.50,000 a year which is to be doubled if he is elected to the Senate is going a step too far to impose on the most credulous and those who inspire or write such stuff mistake the mater Ial of the West a Irginia legislature when they suppose it to be susceptible to influences so thin. It is Well known that or. Camden is not an officer of the Standard Oil com Pany. He has repeatedly stated that he Lias 110 official connection with that com Pany and receives no salary from it. Tie has also stated that he Neves had any interest whatever in the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. As president of the Camden Consoli dated Oil company he has been of great Benefit to the Oil interest of West Ginia. Before that company was organized the business was in a most demoralized condition nearly everyone connected with it was financially embarrassed and a Larve number were in a state of bankruptcy. Failure after fail ure had taken place entailing enormous loves to the producers and the business Community until the name of being connected with Oil was fatal to one s credit. It will he recollected by All that As the failures increased How often the business Community was startled by the report that the firm of j. 2f. Camden in to. Was in mov Ovi ure and bankruptcy and that Hie first National Hank of parkers Burg of which he was president would Godown with him. These were almost the daily reports that tame out on the Railroad and numerous customers re moved their accounts from the Hank be Lieving or. Camden s firm would follow in the Wake and take the Bank with it. Under these trying circumstances or. Camden showed Tho highest order of ability by forming the Camden Consoli dated Oil company uniting most if not All the refineries at Parkersburg Ami avoiding the Competition that had proved so disastrous. He then inaugurated the system of paying Cash to the producer for crude Oil instead of the credit system which had caused so Many serious losses. And again when the trans or lion charges became unreasonably High for bringing the oils from Wells to Parkersburg by Railroad tie took tie Lead in aiding to build a pipe line to i a Kersburg in opposition t the Railroad by which the transportation charges were red need nearly one half. The Camden Oil co. Lias stood at All times the buyer of All the West Virginia oils offered Lor Sale whether by Friend or foe treating a i alike at regular and uniform prices ranging at nearly double the Price received for Pennsylvania oils. And it m a remarkable fact that not a failure has t Iken place in the Oil Busi Ness of West Virginia since the organization of the Camden Oil co., in 1s75. While in the same period before its organization not less than half a million dollars a l been lost by failures. In addition to his Oil interests or. Camden has been the Foremost and steadfast Friend of All improvements for the Lienchu of his Section. The Kana iia Slack water improvement and the various manufacturing interests of Parkersburg have been fostered he him. The narrow gauge Railroad from Clarks Burg to Weston is the Best evidence of what May be expected from him if placed in a position to command the in fluence necessary for development on a larger scale in our state. That he has the Boualit cations and ability to make a creditable and useful senator none who know him will Deriv. That he is honest and faithful his Lile Ami character have proved. The True inwardness of the attacks made upon him is explained by the Summ Sud or when it save it is the Field to beat he stand the loading Candi Date wit i possibly strength enough to vet the n Unin it Ion in caucus against the the Field is continuing to pre vent a caucus nomination in order that the Lien Biliran vote May count on joint for some of the Field against or. Camden we Hope the members of the legislature will not lie deceived by these devices. Or. Camden is not Only the Choice of the l Uio Ratic party of the suite but of the whole people of the state and the legislature will reflect their will and do the state a substantial service by let Ting him.
