In roBpouuo lo a letter from tho Governor
of Missouri tendering hira tho commission
of lirigadior-C* enoral of tho National
Guard of Missouri, Genoral Sherman
Hilda t o h?o declination fiomo comments
applicable to most of tho States, and
not raoro to Missouri than West Virginia.
The General says that while ho cannot accept
tho cointnieslon, as a resident and
tax payer ho shall insist on his full right
to tho absolute security of his life and
property; and he addsTo
this end, the maintenance by the Btate
ol? woll regulated militia la ol more importance
thun all the politics with wbich onr
people are kept iu a etato of everlasting excitement.
The Utnte makes liberal provision
for it* locnl polico, for its courts, Judges,
Sheriff* and Marshals; fur its legislative and
executive oiilcers, but foolishly expects its
militia, composed of poor young men, togive
gratia thoir time and money, to provide their
own armories, uniforms, clothing, arms, and
accoutrements, and to respond to tho call ol
the Governor to quell riots and mobs, alwayt
caased by some popular clamor of prejudice,
whereby they often iucur tbe ill-will of then
neighbors and employers, and lose the vtr>
bread needed by tUelr families. This uhouk'
iint be. and now in thu.iiniH lo correct thii
evil, which is universal in the Uuuited States
The General advises tho Governor tc
urge upon the Senators and Itopresenativci
of Missouri tho pasepgo of the Slocum Mi
litla bill, ami upon the State Legislature i
liberal measuro to implement nationa
Tho standing army of tho United Statee
scattered from Alaska to tho Gulf of Mex
ico, and from the Atlantic to tho Pacific
occupied chiefly in keeping tho Indiana ii
subjection, is too small for a national re
lianco in time of trouble. "We have neve
had, und never shall have, any difllcult;
in putting in the field n uuilicient force c
men drawn from peaceful pursuits, but th
experience of the late war teaches tk
greater valuo of tho well-drilled militiama:
over tho raw recruit. .From tho milita c
the states our officers were largoly drawr
and many of thcao achieved renown. Bu
a well-ordered State forco is useful in tim
of peace to reinforce the civil arm of th
law, when life and, property would othei
wiae be without protection.
as ueneral bberman points our, btale
are -williny to make liberal proviaion fo
anything elae? the inilitia must take car
of itself. About tlio only oncouragemei
that men have to form themselves int
military companies ia that it offers anotlic
way to apend thoir money. Nobody ea
pecta a police force to be self supporting
the day of volunteer firemen ia over excep
in the amalleat placet; yet the militiama:
is expected to provide for himself almct
everything that lie needs. Thia ia not fai
to the men, and a worse policy for theSvat
would bo dillicult to conceive.
Our atanding army numbers about *25
000 men. We could easily have a iS'atioE
al Guard of half a million effective mei
who could be put in tho field at a week'
notice, ready to do good service. The aec
timent of the country is opposed to a largi
standing army aud to compulsory militar
service, neither of which ia ncctaaary. I
tho National and State Governments wil
pursue a liberal militaiy policy the mej
will be forthcoming, and we shall have i
National Guard that will be creditable t<
fifty-live millions of people. Even Wes
Virginia would wake up and do some

But in all the confusion, clash and storm
that has attended the downfall of tho West
Virginia University there aro a few namea
that will be houorod in the State when its
principal institution of learning is placed
on a euro foundation above tho clouds that
shadow its present prosperity. One queation
that time and trial have tested they
were on the right side "beyond thoshadow
of doubt." Adam W. LorenU breathes the
, air that floats above deirmgogueiam and hac
, worked steadily and faithfully for the upbuilding
of the University, and. looked unfavorably
upon the disastrous faction that
urged tho chaugos which have .wrought its
Jaa. M. Leo, Major and Commandant ol
1 Cadets and Superintendent of grounds and
| buildings, is a gentleman of tho fairest
type, as every student of the old school can
testily. During his administration tho ca,
det corps reached its golden age. The
t corps was divided, and two full compahict
wero on tho field, otlicered, equipped and
' drilled in the most thorough manner. A
I graduate of the University, ho knew iti
> wants and its necessities, and regarded the
intonded changes as stepping stones to the
> downfall of tho institution.
j ouu no loneu on in nia worn, uisregaru
tag the barriera placed in his way by th<
Sybaritea, who sought luxury and a clmngi
1 from Thompsonian methods rather thai
1 the true welfaro of the school.
The corps has boen reduced in numbci
with the reduction of the number in at
' tendance, but the eamo military dieciplim
and bearing are required of the few tlia
, was expected of the many. The disciplin
a is purely military in that departmontnothinjf-short,
to flitter the individua
whiroo of canting men who eought the de
r Htruction of this department, and no ex
y traa. Cadets pay due respect to all ofiicere
,1 The etiouotte of the soldier ia all that i
required, and the young man who doe
0 not know or cannot practico that muc!
e politeneaa has no busineea in society, mucl
a lefH a place in the corps of cadets of th
West Virginia University. Major Leei

t the dastard who lired the boat-house doe
o him credit. The bout-house was built b
0 the students at their own expense, an
would have been cared for by an honei
"* student, regarding his word of honor give.
before enlisting, to guard and protect al
b University property. The man who wa
tr base enough to applyj the incendiarief
torch, totally disregarding all law, deserve
e tho most severe punishment that can b
it moted out to him.
o It is true that the faculty disregards th
ir actions of students, and that no watchfu
^ eye follows them into the drinking an<
gambling dens where they squander, nc
i) their own substance, but that of parent
who often sacrifice luxury and sometime
even the necessary comforts of life in orde
to keep them nt school. Why ia this
Simply because the Bourbon Ibard of lie
r gents, acting upon the advice of this sam
0 disastrous faction in the Bourbon facultj
abolished all rules and regulations concern
ing drinking and gambling, gave loose vei
- to all, and placed no restraint upon thoa
i- who would run headlong into ruin only t
j return to kind friends disgraced, debauch
