THE VIRGINIA EDITORS.
The members of the. Virginia Press
Association, now In session at Ohl
Point, selected an auspicious linn- to
visit the famous resort, whoso name
In synonymous with health and vigor
and over which cool and salubrious
breezes from Father Nopu.s domain
are wafted in defiance of Old Sol.
Their visit is opportune tit this junct?
ure, because in the grim ramparts of
Fort Monroe they will read a. new
chapter in American history, while a
glance at tin- Hille hand of volunteers
camped just outside of the garrison,
awaiting tin- call to the front, will
bring them in closer touch with lue
stirring scenes now being enacted in a
foreign land to the honor and glory of
By coining to Newport News, as all
or them will doubtless do. they can see
the greatest shipyard in America,
which is now constructing three tlrst
class battleships for Uncle Sam's navy
and which recently lias been rushed to
Its utmost capacity in placing other
vessels in lighting trim.
We web-..m.- the Virginia editors to
this .section not only because of tin- fel?
low feeling which binds .'ill quill drivers
in the bonds of fellowship, bill because
they are men of ready percipiencce and
good judgment who will see in the de?
velopment of the Peninsula, an.I .spe?
cially Newport News-Virginia's
youngest city?evidences of progress
and prosperity that will cause them to
feel even greater pride In the grand old
We trust' that nothing will occur to
mar the pleasure of the overworked anil
underpaid editors In their brief outing
and hope thai when they return to
their sanctums they will carry wilb
them delightful impressions or their
Blood will tell, but. for all that, na?
ture makes all mankind kiir, and. ac?
cording to the religion that Is preached
in tlie churches of the country, peace
and good will towards men is one of Its
Chief objects. Why. then, thanks were
offered in those churches Sunday for
the slaughter ami suffering of theSpan
lards, one of the oldest Christian na?
tions, is what certainly the unregener
ate cannot tell.?Alexandria Gazette.
Then the unregenerate must be nat?
ural born fools. If our esteemed con?
temporary would look back a little it
would discover that few of the Chris?
tian people of the country indulged in
the cry for war. As a matter of fact,
th*- Influence of the church was thrown
against unsheathing the sword until ll
wu3 found Imposiblc to settle the ques?
tion at issue peaceably. Then, as pa?
triotic citizens of (he United States,
the Christians as well as a great ma?
jority of the unregenerates bowed to
the inevitable and proceded to uphold
the government In its righteous stand.
As is quite natural, some of the mem?
bers of the church believe that thero
Ik a supreme being who holds the des?
tinies of the nations of the world in I
his omnipotent hand. They also believe i
that this great being favors the Amer- !
lean republic. A brief glance at the
history of the country would at least
seem 1" furnish seme reason for this
belief. It is difficult t<> see. then, why
a prayer of thanksgiving should be
either wrung or Inconsistent. The
American government Is not lighting
the Spaniards us individuals ur -imply
for the love of inflicting pain, but cir?
cumstances over which it had no con?
trol has made it an instrument m 11o?
hands of progress to remove an obsta?
cle from the path of civilization. The
thanks were for favors and blessings
bestowed .in the American cause and
not lor the punishment indicted on
Spain There nr.- two sides to every
liteslion. save the man who per?
versely ami ignorahtly reruses to sec
long enough to study tie- Scriptures a
little. It would discover thai a rlghl
eous war is iiot incompatible with the
tenets of Christianity. As a mattet
of fa. t. the founder ..f die Christian re?
ligion himself said: "Think not that
1 am come lo send peace on earth:
I came not to send peace, but a sword."
From a cursory view of He- matter
ii S...-IOS thai lie Danish authorities a'
St. Thomas are right in refusing to
allow He- United States warships to
lake coal away from lb.- Islands. Den
mark has proclaimed neutrality in the
pies,oil .?..-sl between Spain and the
United Stub s. There seems to be no
doubl thai sic lias maintained a proper
attitude in dealing with lie- Spaniards.
II would be both unreasonable and

where he was born and where he
hopes to end his days. The old man is
a picturesque ligurc on the si reels o(
the town. In his prime lie was one
of tin- mltl-eenutry dandies of New
York city, but now. with calm indif?
ference to tin- convent tonal, lie usually

His home is n Utile cotingo on th?
edge of the town, where he lives en?

afternoon he can be found scaled lie
fore his door reading, but he is ready
enough to talk with Ihe elinuco visitor,
whose curiosity to meet the coiuposol
of one of the national songs of Amer?
ica has brought him out from town.
It was this curiosity Unit took lue to
the cottage. The obi composer was
seated in Ihe shade by his house with
a book open before him. As I went
up Ihe path I said, for I had some
doubt in my own niiuil:

finally took it for my start. Tin- rest
wasn't long in coming. And that's
the story of how ?Dixie' was written.
"It made a hit at oi. and before

New York was whistling it. Then the

Mrs. Catherine Suyder, of Warsaw,
Indiana, has been proved tlie rightful
heir of Robert Morris, the Revolution?
Every schoolboy has read of Robert
Morris and of his patriotic acts during
the war for American independence.
Besides obtaining large sums from
other so trees, the patriot loaned to the
Continental Congress a large part of
his private fortune. The records show
these loans to have aggregated abeut
The interest for over a century has
swelled this sum to upward of one
million dollars. This sum, it is ex?
pected, will he paid to Mrs. Snyder,
who is probably the sole beir.
Although Government officials have
kept a discreet, silence respecting this
fort ne. an investigation lias been in
progress for years. It was known that
Robert Mortis had a number of chil?
dren; that all died without issue ex?
cept James Morris, and that after con?
siderable trouble a sou was traced to
Middled own. ().. where he died about
seventy years ago.
His demise left bis two children?a
boy of two and it girl of live years?
orphans. The hoy was adopted by a
family which later went to Western |
Kansas or Nebraska, and which cannot
Mrs. Snyder Is about seventy-five
years "f age. She was born in Middle
town. ().. and was early left an orphan.
She was adopted by a neighbor, one
.lohn Snyder. who removed lo Warsaw
County. Here his adopted daughter
grew up aluiust ignorant of her lineage,
Snyder himself being tin ignorant man.
Mrs Snyder is a quiet, kindly, unas?
suming old lady, an earnest Christian
and acciislotiied to habits of frugality.
Since thi publication of the news of
her luck the mails have been Hooded
with letters, mostly from beggars,
though otic or two contained offers of
