early 1900's STUART F. REED HARRISON COUNTY'S CANDIDATE FOR THE REPUBLICAN NOMINATION FOR SECRETARY OF STATE A FEW OF THE MANY COMMENTS BY THE STATE PRESS Figure WHEELING NEWS. An active party worker—an accomplished public speaker. POINT PLEASANT GAZETTE. One of the most eloquent and learned men of the State, self-made in an educational way, highly qualified for the position. GRAFTON REPUBLICAN. One of the most deserving Republicans in West Virginia—a splendid orator with high executive ability. WHEELING INTELLIGENCER. He has always been a hard party worker who has received little for his work. He is in a class, the men composing which have done a vast amount of good for the State. Affable and thoroughly competent he would make an ideal official. SISTERSVILLE OIL REVIEW. Harrison county is in all fairness entitled to a place on the State ticket and it is fortunate that it has to offer such an irreproachable candidate as Senator Reed. There is no stain on either his public record or private character. PARKERSBURG STATE JOURNAL. One of the best known Republicans in the State and is having a big boom for the office to which he aspires. GRAFTON SENTINEL. One among the State's ablest writers and speakers and seems to be taking position as a leading possibility for the nomination. There is not a more courteous and kindly citizen in the State and he would grace the office of Secretary of State in a way that would do credit to the State and the office. KINGWOOD JOURNAL. As a member of the State Senate he was a commanding figure and an honest champion of the rights of the people. As a guest of honor of the University Club at Pittsburg a few weeks ago Mr. Reed told the story of West Virginia's claim to greatness in language so striking and eloquent, it won him added laurels as an orator and a secure place in the affections of West Virginians. He belongs to that class of men who accomplish things. BUCKHANNON DELTA. He has rendered his party and his State services which bespeak his scholarly attainments and high ideals as a Christian gentleman. He deserves the vote of every delegate in Upshur county. RECEIVED M'KINLEY'S THANKS. The Cincinnati Times-Star, of March 13, eulogizes Mr. Reed and speaks highly of his party loyalty. During the M'Kinley campaign, he was invited to Ohio to assist in stumping the President's home state. One of his editorials relating to the Bryan silver craze was, by authority of Chairman Hanna, stereotyped and the metal plates sent to Republican newspapers throughout the United States. Among Senator Reed's highly prized possessions are the personal letters he received from both President M'Kinley and Senator Mark Hanna thanking him for his efficient work in that campaign. HARRISON COUNTY HERALD. Senator Reed is the one candidate upon whom all newspapers and factions in Harrison county can unite. Mr. Reed is not only able but a clean, honorable man.— Wetzel Rep. HARRISON COUNTY'S CLAIM. The five thousand Republicans of Harrison county present the name of Stuart F. Reed as their choice for Secretary of State. Their candidate is not now holding office, but is an honored citizen of Clarksburg, the city where the State was born—where under the Republican banner, West Virginia took her first step toward the Union. This city, a stronghold of Republicanism, has never been given any of the State's educational or public institutions. Harrison county with a record of over 2,000 Republican majority has had no representative on a State ticket and practically no recognition in State affairs since West Virginia joined the Republican phalanx. The State ticket will carry names for nine positions this year. Harrison county asks for one of these and no Republican in West Virginia can say this county is not entitled to the honor, and Senator Reed the position he seeks.— Daily Telegram. A BRIEF SKETCH. Mr. Reed was born and reared on a West Virginia farm, his ancestors being pioneers. He traces his lineage, both maternal and paternal, to a soldier of the Revolution, and is the only son of Maj. M. D. Reed, who was a loyal Union man. By working on the farm and saving his earnings, Mr. Reed was enabled to attend the Fairmont Normal School and later the West Virginia University. Upon completing his studies at the University, he joined General Goff and others in the purchase of the Clarksburg Telegram, and was for eight years its editor, his paper being a power in the Republican party when the State was wrested from Democratic control. His active political services, however, began before he was old enough to vote, when he threw down his books, left the school room and went out to make Republican speeches in what then seemed a hopelessly Democratic state. In every campaign, for twenty years, he has given his best energies by voice and pen, fighting for his party. Receiving the nomination for the twenty-third state senate without opposition, he was elected as its youngest member. He has been a member of the Board of Regents of the West Virginia University, a member of the Republican State Committee, and a member of the Executive Committee of the National League of Republican Clubs. Senator Reed was President of the West Virginia Editorial Association three terms and was one of the founders of the National Republican Editorial Association of the United States. He is president of the Board of Trustees of Broaddus Classical and Scientific Institute, a noted Christian educational institution of his home city, and Eminent Commander of the Knights Templar Order of Clarksburg. These positions, while of no pecuniary advantage to Mr. Reed, have nevertheless been valuable schools of experience.— West Virginian. CLARKSBURG NEWS. Mr. Reed's boom has reached all parts of the State and everywhere it has been received with welcome. He is a scholar and a gentleman.
