SATURDAY, DECEMBER 21, 1S'J5.
It Is reported that corn is being: very
generally, used us fuel 111 central Iowa,
the farmers claiming that the prevail?
ing prlct; would not repay the cost of
husking and marketing, says the Lowell
The Washington Star says that the
President Indicates unmistakably tha.t,
while this country Is not looking for
trouble, it is not disposed to assume a
coy demeanor if trouble is pressed on
In Eplte of the belligerent tone of
many of our newspapers and polltlcLt.fj
the dancer of war between this country
and England Is too remote to justify
or excite apprehension, remarks the
Vfe are arbitrators, we ore. If Brl
talh doss not want t;> arbitrate we
?will go ahead und arbitrate ourselves,
and then notify the British lion to keep
off of Veneruela's grass, thinks the
Tite British editors are pained to note
that through the singular stubbornness
of the American nation, their edict
ordering the abolition of the Monroe
doctrine has not yet gone into effect,
says the Chicago Record.
A Washington paper says that Speak?
er Reed shows "two lovely dimples in
hla checks when he smiles." That may
be Iiis tribute to the new woman In
politics. "Women all dote on dimples,
remarks the Savannah News.
The British press is disposed to de?
li, e its public by explaining; President
Cleveland's message, on the Venezuelan
qub'tlon as merely one of those cases
of twisting the lion's tail tor an effect
In the next political campaign.
The Charleston News and Courier
says that If the United States go to
war with Great Britain and if the
British capture Charleston we shall per?
haps have the opportunity of march?
ing under the old flag once irare.
THF. BLUE AXO THE GRAY.
The New York Mail and ICxpress has
'discovered that it can afford to be Just
In its dealings with matters affecting
the South and Its people, and further,'
that It might even Indulge In a few '
compliments now and then. In referr?
ing to the proposed parade of the Blue
jfcjand the Gray in New York, it says:
- ?The 'Blue and Gray' parade next
> year, which was first suggested by the
2 Mail and Express In August last, and
? which has now assumed definite form
f would hove additional significance If it
I could be held on Decoration Day, and
be coupled with the ceremonies attend?
ing the unveiling of th.r Confederate
Monument in Mount Hope Cemetery.
. That Interesting ev\it alone will draw
to New York thousands of Confederate
veterans, and would -tfford an excel?
lent opportunity for a v>lnt riemonstra-|
' lion on the part of the wterans of the
two greatest armies of modern limes.
Nothing would more smilingly typify
the end of sectionalism, aVl the com- i
, plete rapprcaehtnetu of ^tmith and
North, than a parade of the h^s in gray
. end the boys in L'.hie, In n'.terVtte com

COKE ISDlSritY 1)1' VllltilMA.
The Baltimore Sun says that the de
?j ?cSjjpment of the coal and coke Indus?
try of Southwestern Virginia has been
Tory remarkable during the last five
? years, and ndds that there has been no
? announcement which accentuates this
development more strikingly than that
which now comes from Roanoke that
: the Pccahontas Conl Company has Just
? entered Into a contract with the Illinois
Steel Company, of Chicago, to supply
.-.that great manufacturing enterprise
l-i. with 500,000 tons of coke during the year
.; 189G. An idea of the great size of this
: order, remarks our contemporary, may
- be gained from the statement that It
gsvWlll recjnlTe a daily average of about I
... ?Lshty cwtb dtirinjr the entire year to i
complete the contract. As a i steam-pro?
ducing coal the Pocahontas liroduct has ]
been pronounced unsurpassed. The Nor- |
folk and 'Western railroad vi lli he he,ne
flted by this contract, as It dVlll haul this I
coke to Columbus. O.. over Its own lines,
and from that point it hua satisfactory
trallic arrangements to Chicago. There
Is no bolter coal for Bleaifi purposes In I
the world than that which Is produced |
by the Pocahontas Company, and In
time It will become of general use, Its
consumption not being confined to this
country. The mammoth order to which
the Sun refers Is but the forerunner ot
others equally as large and Important.
IX CASK Off WAlt.
Writing under the above caption the
Washington Star says In comparing the
naval strength of the United States
with that of Great Britain. "It appears
to be generally overlooked that In case
of war the entire naval force of the
United States could be utilized for the
purpose of defense or offense, as the
case might be, and while the coast Hue
of the United Stales i(; of extraordinary
length, thus requiring an unusual
amount of maritime preparation; the
navy of Great Britain is subject to ex?
tensive demands for the protection of
I her valuable commercial Interests In all
parts of the world, in short," our con?
temporary thinks, "it would be Impossi?
ble for lier to concentrate all of her
great naval strength In operations
against the United States, for tills
would leave exposed some dozen Im?
portant points In different quarters of
the globe where English Interests are
paramount. To relinquish the watchful
vigilance over these outposts made
necessary by her colonizing policy would
be to expose her to attack:-, front powers
that are inimical to her interests and
Jealous of her wide possessions. Yet,"
the Star Is of the opinion that, "these
facts do hot warrant the complete re?
liance of the United Stales upon exist?
ing maritime forces In case of trouble.
It holds that If "war Is seriously con?
templated, or becomes an actual pro?
bability, the first duly of this Govern?
ment will be to equip Itself in a modern
fashion and to call in all the natural re?
sources In which the country Is so
The extensive coast which 'we would
have to guard would, of course, greatly
hamper our movements in other di?
rections, put with the great resmin a of
this country it would not he long before
we could meet the naval force of Great
Britain upon equal grounds. In the
meantime* the operations of the United
States would be conducted more upon
an offensive plan than otherwise.
