THE HISTORY OF MAN: AN
APOLOGUE.
The human race were originally an?
gels; but the Dovll one day showed
them some money, nnd they fell In love
?with It,?fell from grace and heaven;
nnd after a period of assiduous search
and pursuit of gold and sliver, wan?
dering ail over the Universe, they dis?
covered that this little sphere, the
earth, was full of the so-called precious
metals, and here they tarried.
Having been angels, men were still
comparatively good; but they had lost
the clew that led to Heaven; and their
earliest records reveal that the Devil,
taking advantage of their repentance
of Sin and their desire to regain the
favor of Heaven by devout worship, de?
luded them with strange rites, which
were no better than orgies, and,
through which Iniquity covered the
earth as water covers the sea.
Labor, in mercy, was Introduced
among men, saving them from much
evil that Idle hands find to do. Mean?
while, the love of money hnd grown
rife In the land, and the cult had its
prophets, priests and Kings, under the
immediate patronage and supervision of
Beelzebub, Lord of Lies and Prince of
Bubblers; the motto of this sect at that
time was:?"Everyone for himself, and
the Devil take the hindmost."
But the love of one another had not
become entirely extinct among men
who had embraced labor as a divine
calling, and they instituted "unions,"
"co-operative associations." and other
beneficial societies for mutual aid and
especially to help the weaker. These,
however, demonstrated the immense
power of united effort, nnd the capital?
ists, or lovers of money, speedily adopt?
ed and perverted the benevolent
scheme for the selfish purposes of ug
grnndizlng themselves by the oppres?
sion and extortion of others?as relig?
ious rites had been prostituted to Bac?
chanalian revels. Combining their in?
fluence and cnpital In trusts and other
mammoth agglomerations, the money
worshippers cunningly and unscrupu?
lously engrossed everything, establish?
ing universal monopoly everywhere, in
everything.?insomuch that the Devil
himself, as a precautionary and nelf
dcfenslve policy. took controlling
shares in all earthly trusts, or com?
bines, usually In the name of some at?
tached nnd faithful friend.
Soon, all mankind, except the acutest
and worst of tho monopolists, were
slaves and paupers: the boss-monopo?
lists being luxurious and absolute des?
pots. All but these despots unanimously
voted that life was not worth living and
left the earth by every means at hand,
as rapidly as possible. Starvation slew
Its thousands, cultivated and fatal dis?
eases struck down its tens of thou?
sands, nnd suicide became "a happy
dispatch," In some mode or other, to es
cape the vilest, basest, most cruel, in
appeasable and atrocious of all tyran?
nies combined in the money-monopoly;
and so amazed, curious and eager were
all the inmates of Sheol to keep en rap?
port with the monopolists, that they
thronged and choked the mouth of The
Pit daily to seize with avidity their
copies of the special edition of the
Daily - ??-, printed for them.
and glowing nnd overflowing with dol?
lar-marks ($). figures of immense sums,
and endless announcements of PROS?
PERITY!
The End came. Another Nero arose.
"Monopoly must run Its natural and
logical course," he declared. "As long
as monopoly is shared. It Is divided and
imperfect. Lo. Z alone will engross all
things, and at last enjoy the wish I
once expressed?to slay all men at a
blow?the ultima Th?le of non-competl
tlve and utterly exclusive monopoly! I
have my associates Inveigled and shut
up In an air-tight prison; and, as It is
Impossible to decapitate them at a sin?
gle stroke, I suffocate them all to?
gether. There! That was the expiring
shriek of the last of them; and now I
have Monopoly Indeed!
" "I am monarch of all I survey?" "
ADMINISTRATION IS NOT
GOVERNMENT.
If this administration were the gov?
ernment, revolution would be the Im?
mediate duty of the American people.
But it Is not the government, nor any?
thing like It,?being only a temporary,
four-years', Hanna. malodorous mal?
administration. The government Is per?
petual, eternal. Administrations and
parties may come and go, but govern?
ment stands forever; one and Indivisi?
ble, like the Union and the Constitution.
Even a Hanna may make an adminis?
tration, as he made a President; but
the more one admires, respects and
loves this government, the more he
mu6t loathe, contemn and hate this ad?
ministration. Opposition to Hanna
Republicanism and Alger-beef is loyal?
ty to the Republic; to support this ad?
ministration requires one to be a traitor
to the Constitution, an apostate to all
American principles and an assassin of
Liberty.
An administration?this one, for in
stance?consists of a President and
Vice-President, supposed to have been
elected by the people, for a term of
four years.?the sworn duty of the
President being to administer the gov?
ernment during his term of office ac?
cording to law. and to preserve, pro?
tect and defend the Constitution. Not?
withstanding this oath, the administra.
lion (like this one) may be adverse to
our government, lies spirit and princi?
ples; a usurpation, an imperialism, a
military despotism and a tool of the
money-power. Tho government is Dem?
ocratic and Jeffcrsonian; the adminis?
tration is a hireling of the gold-mo?
nopoly, anti-popular trust-ridden and
Hannaniasiatlc,?ready "for treasons,
stratagems and spoils.*'
This Federal Government was in?
stituted on the 4th or March. 17S9. and
It has existed without interruption to
this hour?for over 110 (one hundred
and ten) years; while this administra?
tion has existed but a little over two
years?having begun on the 4th of
March, 1S97. and will terminate March
4th, IflOl?four years being its great?
est span of life.
The difference between government
and administration is therefore vital
and fundamental, and must always be
kept In remembrance, lest our fealty
make us partisans, our patriotism be?
tray us to minions of power, or our
senne of duty be perverted to the pur?
poses of a moneyed oligarchy. Our
loyalty Is due to government; the ad?
ministration owes us sworn service,
and Is entitled to nothing but contempt
if It fail.
AN OPENING
A careful and we believe trustworthy
compilation of the trusts launched since
January 1st, shows that the aggregate
capitalization to May 1st was $1,525,000,
000. of which t30.000.000 was represented
by bonds. $51:1.000,000 by preferred stock,
nnd $922.000,000 by common stock?the
latter very common In the great major?
ity of eases, as it was "?bonus." or pure
water. The preferred stock represents
the valuation of the property acquired,
and usually this valuation is computed
01) a very liberal basis, hence it Is safe
to say, we think, that the actual pro?
ductive capacity embraced in these
combinations could be duplicated at a
cash outlay of $500,000,000. Such is the
structure erected by the "promoters" in
only four months of activity.
The thing appears top-heavy, so
dropslcally inflated, that one may well
wonder whether it will fall over of Its
own puffy unwleldlncss before Colonel
W. Jennings Bryan and the millions of
Democrats under his guidance can get
a chance at It. If the promoters can
really create out of hand $1,000,000.000 of
substantial wealth In three months by
the operation of the printing press
alone, it is the height of folly for the
country to look further for sources of
prosperity. The entire agricultural Com?
munity can lease Its lands and remove
to town, because here, on the fnce of
the returns, a few industrious gentle?
men with nothing but the resources of
a printing establishment have created
of much wealth, in four months, as
the farmers can get out of the ground
In two years.
AMERICANS SHOULD BE AMERI?
CAN.
We do not favor distinctions among
Americans of white skin and kindred
blood. We are all Americans, If we ac?
cept the Declaration of Independence
and the Constitution of the United
States. But Germans. Irishmen and
others who have become Americans by
adoption or naturalization, have no
reason to forget nor Ignore their re?
spective countries, unless they are
ashamed of them; and If they are
proud of them (as they have reason to
be), they are not likely to be any the
less true to the United States because
they honor "the old country," or
"Fatherland."
But why should men who rerntinber
and honor their own patriots and their
struggles for freedom, and who them?
selves love liberty and the rights of
mart, attach themselves to the service
of the Republican party, to keep It in
power at Washington, Habana nnd Ma?
nila? Are Irishmen in favor of British
Imperialism at Dublin? Are Germans,
who fought for freedom In 1848, and
whose hero is Arnold Wlnkelrled, who
"made way for liberty?" t
Made way for liberty, and died!"
?are they minions of the power at
Washington,?for liberty only In office?
IS IT A MOUSE, OR A MONSTER ?
"What do these disorders In so many
European capitals portend? Are they
mere effervescences of superficial ex?
citement, meaning nothing more? Or
are they ebullitions of deep-seated sen?
timents that forebode strife and mill
I tary repression. If not bloody revolu?
tion and the conflagrations of capitals
and empires? It Is difficult for us to
comprehend these foreign and usually
very excitable populations, who boll
over furiously for a moment, but seem
to put out their own fires by their over?
flow before any great damage Is done.
Yet Just now there is a concert and
coincidence In these public manifesta?
tions of public discontent that argue a
more deep-seated cause and a'more se?
rious Intention than usual.
At Brussels, Berlin, Rome. Madrid,
Paris and other centers there Is man?
ifest a temper ready to seize any oc?
casion, or opportunity for an outbreak;
but, on the other hand, we have no
knowledge of any organization or lead?
er anywhere that can turn these dem?
onstrations into any steady purpose.
Nevertheless, unforeseen, the man and
the hour sometimes arise together, and
great events ensue.
The tandem cycle Is well enough, but
It Is a long way behind the hammock
built for two.
One cause of the trouble between cap?
ital and labor Is too many men are try?
ing to get capital without labor.
No man's true greatness can be fully
estimated until death foots up his life to
the last item. Who dies best has lived
best. '
Wo cannot rub out the 4th of July
and its Declaration. They are pasted
forever In our account, either to our
credit or our d<fbU:.
The world Is full of conceited people,
who shut their eyes to the fact that the
smallest onion is stronger than the big?
gest pumpkin.
The Dreyfus persecution Is hardly a
greater shame to French administra?
tion that the slander of Schley Is to the
present administration of the United
States government.
The New York Gold Bugs are evading
the postal laws and reserving postage
stamps by moiling their campaign
pamphlets and documents as "Second
class matter. Published monthly." Oh!
Republicanism Is for the Money
power; Monopoly, Scarcity, Despotism
and Imperialism.
Demoaracy is for Manhood, Competi?
tion. Plenty and Liberty.
Which are you for?
Which Is right?
A lady who does not reside a thou?
sand miles from Norfolk recently re?
ceived an anonymous letter, the size
of a postage stamp, and containing one
hundred and ninety-six words. She
sought to trace the author, a .woman
she Imagined, by employing a detective,
who finally reported that as the mis?
sive was minus a postscript Its author
was unquestionably a male.
It Is now Intimated that possibly
General Horace Porter, our ambassa?
dor to France, may return to the United
States and take the portfolio of war.
Should he do so he may be surprised
at the warmth of his welcome home.
The American people are not slow In i
manifesting their gratitude to those

The Pulaskl News-Review of last
Tuesday Is draped in mourning for the
death of the editor, Mr. J. Conway
Smith. Although only twenty-six years
of age, Mr. Smith had given proof of
his fitness to take high rank In his I
profession. THE VIRGINIAN-PILOT
extends sympathy to the surviving
brothers, and trusts they may lind con?
solation in reliance upon Him who
docth all things for the best.
Publishers, Editors and Managers of
newspapers lay It to the public, or lo
their readers, that they cater so little
to the higher faculties and tastes, and
expend so much money and space on
games, sports, gossip and scandal. A
prize-fight takes precedence of every?
thing. There seems to be a lodged Jeal?
ousy and hate of books and literature
in the usual newspaper; but why this
should be so nobody knows.
Gov. Tyler would make a good U. S.
Senator; but whether he will be a can?
didate for the position, we do not know,
and it so far seems very doubtful. If
the people do not care to say in their
nominations of candidates for the leg?
islature that they desire so excellent a
man to be their U. S. Senator, he is
under no obligations to put himself
forward as their champion, although
the field Is open to all who choose to
compete.
THE VIRGINIAN-PILOT has re?
peatedly shown that the cries of "re?
form," "banking-reform" and "curren?
cy reform" come from the very men
whose acts of crime and blunder have
made reform Imperative: as by their
banking-lnws (of Feb. 25. 1S63), the sil?
ver demonetization and gold-monopoly
act( of Feb. 12, 1873), and other uncon?
stitutional and special mlsleglslatlon
for the rich against the poor.
But how brazen is the cry of the
criminals that they must do the re?
forming "Trust the Devil with the re?
storation et righteousness!?'* . ..^
The cigarette Is cosmopolitan and to?
bacco is' universal, circulating among
?the "clouds, and perfuming the Inter?
planetary ether. In Kipling's "Sea to
Sea" we meet the following: "Allen &
Glnter devastate Tokio with' their
blood-red and grass-green tobacco tins.
And in face of all these things the
country" (Japan) "wishes to progress
toward civilization." Kipling thus has
the audacity to question the very con?
clusions and self-evidences of progress
and the best civilization! Go to, Gaboo!
It would seem that on Admiral Dew
ey's return to thlB country he Is tobe ar?
rayed in a gorgeous uniform, specially
designed for America's highest naval
officer. It is well to bear in mind, how?
ever, that the uniform in which the ad?
miral will go down In history will be
that of Commodore on board the Olym?
pia, at Manila, May 1, 1898, topped off
by an old well worn Scotch plaid cnp.
Lace and feathers will never obliterate
this aggregation (homely as it is,) from
the memory of Dewey's admiring and
grateful countrymen.
Advertise! Advertise! Advertise! This
is an injunction as necessary to cities
and communities as to individuals; and
Norfolk should eagerly anticipate and
utilize every opportunity to draw at?
tention to herself, her resources, con?
veniences and possibilities of every
kind. This Is a matter of business,
where modesty and self-depreclntlon do
not pay, and are not expected. We must
blow our own ,horn with all our might,
and all the time; ws must parade with
brass-bands, wave our banners on
every breeze, and make our cannons
boom. Make a noise and a show. He
seen and heard. Rustle, bustle, hustle,
tussle, and Norfolk will draw folk and
rise to greatness In all things.
Side by side in the same paper of a
day or two ago, appeared two letters or
reports from Alaska. One of these told
of a party of successful prospectors on
the eve of departure for home, laden
with gold; another told of the rescue of
a sole survivor of twenty-five gold
hunters, all the rest Starved or frozen
to death, though cannibalism Itself hnd
been resorted to. All of both parties had
undergone terrible deprivations, but
one party had got through with for?
tunes In gold and were joyfully bound
for home again; the other had perish?
ed, through a long series of tortures.
One represented the prosperity we
hear of so much! the other, the dis?
tress and adversity we rarely ever hear
alluded to.

A COMMERCIAL VIEW.
(From Houston Post.)
The expansionists have had a great
deal to say about the wonderful ad?
vantages to be derived by this govern?
ment from the ownership and control
of the Eastern archipelago, and their
theories?as theories usually do?sound
well enough, but when practical facts?
figures, which never deceive?are ap?
plied, they explode, and leave not even
an Impress of their former existence.
The Mobile Register has been apply?
ing some figures to this Philippine mat?
ter, and here is the way the account
stands:
Having bought the Philippine Islands
from Spain for the sum of $20,000,000,
or, as It has been generally stated, nt
the rate of $2 per head, followed by
the consequent cost of unknown mil?
lions of dollars to make the bargain
! bind, the people of the country have
the right to expect that the trade of the
islands Is something of such paramount
Importance as to Justify the expendi?
ture of lives and cash now being dis?
pensed with such liberality by the
United States. Whether this assumption
Is well founded or not can best be
judged by the official trade statistics
Issued from the State Department in its
last volume of! "Commercial Relations
of the United States," just out of the |
government printing office. The figures
given by the department are for the
year 1896. These show that for the year
the exports of the Philippines were $19,
300.000 and the imports into the islands
for the same year jl2.200.000, making the
total trade $:<],500,000. Assuming that
the extent of the normal trade of the
islands had been diminished by the po?
litical conditions in that year by one
third, an outside estimate, it will be
seen that the entire trade of the Is?
lands yearly does not equal that of an
average State of the Union. Yet, the
government is expending enough in the
effort to retain these islands to give
every port In the United States, from
Alaska to Maine, harbors as perfect as
could be asked for, with channels that
would admit the largest vessels which
the trade of each and every port de?
mands.
If there is no commercial value In
these Islands to us why on earth should
we retain them, and thus entail upon
the American people tho Immense cost
of keeping them up, even after millions
have been spent In subjugating them?
These questions are propounded from
a business standpoint, and from a bus?
iness standpoint alone.
By a government nmalgnmatlon are
we to receive other sort of remunera?
tion? If no commercial benefit, then
what? Certainly no moral. Intellectual
or scientific good.
(Front Houston Tost.)
It seems that we are now to have a
Secretary for the Colonies, and Robert
P. Porter, who has filled a number of
public places tinder different Republi?
can administrations, is "spoken of" for
the place. There will be hundreds of
places to fill in case imperialism finally
wins, and the professional place-hunt?
ers, knowing this, are In evidence on
every hand as the most rabid expan?
sionists.
The gold combination can afford to
contribute liberally to the Republican
campaign fund next year because the
success of the Republican party In this
country la absolutely necessary to the
success of the gold trust In completing
an industrial conquest of the world.
[Danville Register. June 1]
The Norfolk Virginian-Pilot thus
sums up the Iniquities of latter clay

"Bryan hns begun an aggressive cam?
paign against 'criminnl aggression,'
Imperial Hannarchy, Algerian rotten?
ness. McKinley Napoleonism (in tin),
Croker masqtieraders, Relmont 'what is
