~ The man who supplied the Bible upon
?which President McKinley took the oath
of office has finallj secured a job for his
son in one of the departments. It was a
devious route to the pie counter, but it
was successful. .
Tho crop reports from various parts of
the country indicate that conditions in
the South are more favorable than in the
rest of the country, except that cotton is
a little backward. Harvesting of winter
wheat is now general in this section and
the yield is generally satisfactory. 'Ohe
South in material advancement is steadily
progressing and the day cannot be far
distant when its great advantages will
be ful'y appreciated and immigrants will
swarm into these States by thousands.
The scheme to put a duty on raw cot?
ton, which emanated from Senator Ba?
con, of Georgia, seems "in a fair way of
adoption by a Bepublicau Congress. It
looks like a popular .move, and although
not in line with the Democratic tariff
policy, has already received the support
of five Senators of that party. The effect
of the passage of the measure is variously
interpreted, some of the lending Demo?
crats being particularly vigorous in their
opposition to itj but Senator Bacon in?
sists that the omission of cotton from the
dutiable list is a violation of that part of
the Democratic platform which holds
that tariff taxation should "not discrimi?
nate against any section. With the South
gradually developing iuto 'a manufactur?
ing section and a duty on raw cotton,
there is no knowing what will finally be
the gains of protection in this direction.
C. A. Spreckles, of San Francisco,a son
of Clans Spreckles, the California sugar
king, says the trust,by the time the tariff
bill becomes a law, will have imported
from 800.000 to 1,000,000 short tons of
sugar into this country for the purpose
of evading the tax. In order to save the
$10,000,000 to $20,000,000 which would
be put into the treasury of tho United
States, Mr. Spreckles recommends that
the Government fix an internal revenue
tax of from $10 to $1S per ton to be levied
on all sugars refined in this country for
the next six months. As the enormous
stock which the trust has imported will
have to be refined within that period to
avoid waste and deterioration the Govern?
ment will get the profits of their attempt?
ed evasion of the tariff laws. There
seems to be considerable merit in the
plan, and the tariff tinkers would do well
to adopt it.
WAR IS POSSIBLE.
Those who arc clamoring for a war with
Spain have not probably 'taaen into con?
sideration the fact that io point of num?
bers the first named country could put in
the field Ht once ten times as many sol?
diers as this Government could. It might
be possible to mobili/.e about 40.000 men
of the regulor army and State troops in
two weeks: but it would take at 'east
two months tc get volunteers well enough
trained to take the field. In that time,
however, if necessary, the United States
could raise 000,000 men, ready to go to
-Cuba, Spain or anywhere else that duty
demanded. Spain, to begin with, has
about 10,000 men In Cuba and by strain?
ing every resource might in a month have
at least 10,000 more on this side of the
Atlantic; but our militia could easily,

AN ALIEN GRADUATE.
Francesca Alcantara, tho young Venez?
uelan who was recently graduated from
West Point, has every opportunitv before
him for a distinguished career. His fa?
ther, who died some years'ago, was one
of the most patriotic citizens in the South
American republic. He'served as presi?
dent of the country, was an able states?
man, and was comuiander-in-chief of its
army. As a thoroughly military educa?
tion is tbe speediest way to preferment in
Venezuela, General Alcantara was very
anxious that his son should have every
advantage In this Respect. Before he
died he expressed a desire '.that his ouly
son should he educated at the United
States Military ^Academy and Congress,
at the request of the '.Venezuelan govern?
ment, passed the necessary resolution ad?
mitting him to West Point. As young
Alcantara is not a citizen of the United
States, he will not receive a diploma,
which would commission him a lieuten?
ant, in the army of this.- country, but will
merely receive a certificate from tho
academic board, setting forth his qualifi?
cations as a student and the fact that he
has passed the standard of proficiency re?
quired of candidates for commissions in
the army. It is his [intention to return
to his native country and present the cer?
tificate of graduation to President Crespo,
who will give him a captain's commission
in the Venezuelan army. He will then
assist in reorganization of that army.and
apply the practical ".knowledge gaiued at
West Point to drilling and disciplining
the Venezuelan^trocps. If he does not
become ambit ions for presidential honors
too soon, and cause a revolution, there is
good reason to believe that in due time he
will attaiu to the honors and offices once
held by his father.
HAWAII AND JAPAN. *
Serious trouble is threatened between
Hawaii and Js.pau, and unless the United
States intervenes in behalf of the former
government there is danger that the island
will become a Japanese colonv. Twenty
years or more ago the king of the island,
owing to the difficulties; in securiug Chi?
nese coolies for work on the sugar planta?
tions, made a treaty with Japan for the
introduction of laborers from that conn
try Into Hawaii. The Japanese there have
greatly increased ^in numbers and now
demand the same'rights that are given to
white people who settle in the islands.
Their government has recently made a
demand on President Dole to that effect,
accompanied by a threat of rssortiug to
force, and poor little Hawaii is now in
serious danger of being overrun by "the
children of the Rising Sun."
The rulers of ".the Hawaiian republic
and most of the whites in the islands are
anxious for annexation to the United
States, aud. if tho worst comes, will hd
peal to this country for assistance.
Should the latter, they say, he so blind
to its interests in the Pacific as to pay no
attention to this appeal, thuv will invite
the British government to take posses?
sion of the islands, and they tire confident
it will gladly do so. This talk of British
occupation is only a bluff, for the people
ol tbe United States will never consent to
sue.h an arrangement, and the Dole peo?
ple are well aware of this fact; nor will
Undo Sain ever permit the lordly aud ag?
gressive Japs to assume coDtrol of the
islands. Tbe situation may be a little
mixed just now, but annexation eventu?
ally is a certainty.
The United States coquetted n long
time before admitting Texas into the
Unionbut when Mexico protested
against this invasion of her rights, a war
with this country followed, which ended
in the absorbtion of territory many times
larger*than tho State which was the bone
of contention. So in ifdil when Texas
and ten other Southern States attempted
to set up in business for. themselves,; tho
Federal government objected,and brought
them back by forte into the Union. Ha

CUBA MUST WAIt7
President McKinley Will Settle the
Ruiz Gase First.
Washington Juno 10.?President Mc?
Kinley will uot intervene between the gov- '
eminent of Spain and the Cuban belliger?
ents until he has first undertaken to set?
tle the Ruiz case. Commissioner Calhouo
supplements tho report of Consul Gene?
ral Lee by* declariug that Dr. Ruiz, an
American citizen, was deprived of his
liberty in violation of locul and interna?
tional law; that be was held in solitary
confinement 243 hours boyond the
I seventy-two hours limit, which was in
violation of his "treaty rights, and that
315 hours after nls arrrst and incarcera?
tion he tvas dead. Pieefdeut McKinley
has awaited the return of his special com?
missioner and the flnal report of the con?
sul general. He has been deliberative
and conservative. In due season it will
be demonstrated that ihere was sincerity
and genuine sympathy in the expressions
uttered by the President, and the Secre?
tary of State to the widow of the unfor?
It will be remembered that Secretary
Sherman in a fatherly manner took the
hand of the widow in both of his own,
placed his hands upontthe "heads of her
fatber'ess children and assured 'them all
that justice should be done. It will be re*
called that the President received
Madame Ruiz at the White House and
gave her similar assurance in the same
whole, hearted manner. The President
did not see the'children, for the reason
that he then expressed that he ' did not
want his feelings to be aroused by tho
presence of tho little ones. He~felt that
he should hear 'the story of the widow
from her own [Hps,, without having bis
judgment turned aside by hi? symputhiis.
He heard the story calmly, although it
was delivered to him with heart-broken
sobs. He gave the widow and mother and
fatherless children his personal assurance
that justice should bo done. He will ful?
fill that promise.
Before any step is taken 'in 'the matter
of bringing the war iu Cuba to a conclu?
sion President McKinley will take such
conservative action ns may be deemed
necessary to secure indemnity for the out?
rage perpetrated in the murder^of Dr.
Ruiz. Whether the fair-minded man was
murdered by a blow from a prison official
or whether he was m>?de mad by his soli?
tary confinement and killed hlmsell [the
government of Spain will be held ac?
countable for the outrage and for the
awful sufferings and tragic death of that
American citizen. This is the deternii
natio" of President McKinley. Upon this
case will rest the initiation of the pro?
ceedings which are last forthcoming to
bring about a conclusion of the condition
of horror and humiliation which now en?
viron the people of Cuba.
The President has formulated nodecln
ration concerning the attitude which this
government shall take in the matter of
securing "pence with independence" for
the CubHn insurgents. He has author?
ized no statement nnd will authorize no
statement concerning the* means to be
employed to couclude what Commissioner
Calhoun describes Jas a "ceaseless war?
fare." That he is determined and will
act with firmness nobody bus reason to
doubt. But, first of all, the widow and
orphans of au American citizen are enti?
tled to an indemnity for their Buildings
and their loss,and the Government of the
United States is entitled to an apology
and reparation for the international
wrong which has been done.
After the Ruiz case shall have been
disposed of be wili take nction'concernlng
the claims of the Cubans to belliuerent
rights, or the recognition of their inde?
pendence. It is understood that, at first
the President will favor the recognition
of the belligerent rights of the Insur?
gents. Later on something may be done
in the matter of the recognition of their
The widow of Dr. Ruiz'has filed with
the Department of State a claim for $100,
000 indemnity. Secretary Sherman has
made no official statement concerning
this claim, but he has said to an official
of the department over which he presides,
"I do not think that the amount is exces?
sive, under the circumstances."
It is therefore believed that the Presi?
dent will receive from the Secretary of
State a favorable report of the case and
that a demand for indemnity in that sum
will be made upon the government of
A QUESTIONABLE PLAN.
Our esteemed contemporary, the
Hampton Monitor, is very much dis?
turbed over the action of the city Demo?
cratic committee of Richmond in requir?
ing "candidates for the nominnt'on of
governor to pav the costs of the primary
for electing delegates from that city."
"Let us suppose," says the Monitor,
"that the other cities in Virginia imitate
the example of Richmond. Let us sup?
pose that the same plan be adopted by
Charlottesville, Danville, Stauuton,
Lynchburg, Roanoke. Winchester, Alex?
andria, .Kredericksburg, Norfolk, Ports?
mouth and Newport News, and by the
counties and lesser towns, too. What
must the result her Why. simplv that
the man with the longest purse would
buy his nomination. And all this from
the Democratic party?the.party of the
people -the party of equal rights, priv?
ileges, and opportunities for all."
It certainly strikes us that the Monitor
has reason for complaint. We do not
know what particular reason the city
Democratic committee of Richmond had
for choosing the plan explained in tho
foregoing paragraph, anil [we should not
intimate without good cause that any
unfair motive prompted that choice. It
is Our belief, however, that the committee
would have done better if 'It had selected
some other method of holding the pri?
mary. The cost to each candidate who
enters the primary at Richmond will be,
??e understand, four hundred dollars,and
it is easily seen that, if the snmc process
should be repeated throughout the State,
a very respectable fortune would be re?
quired to defray the expenses of candi?
dacy. Of course, the Richmond plan may
not in reality be adopted in many p'aces
besides Richmond; but the principle re?
mains unchanged.?Norfolk Pilot.

WILL CARRY GUNS.
"While tbe Renublicans may sit silent
In the Senate and refuse to explain or tie?
fend their tariff bill,", said Senator Mills
yesterday, "we can appeal to the tribunal
of the people and we will win. There
will not be a peg left for the Republicans
to stand on. We wi'l carry Ohio next fall,
and the next House of Representatives
will be overwhelmingly Democratic.
But," said Mr. Mills, "our party ought
to stand together. We ought not to be
stampeded by the appeals of the lumber
men or the borax men. or any other sort
of men into any agreement'.for high du?

The effect of this tariff bill upon the peo?
ple will be seen, however, not in its high

fortifies trusts of all kinds. Some of
these days this sort of legislation will
have to cease or, we will see a revolution
in this country. The people will not.
stand it. Driven to the wall by the com?
