A llonif for the President.
Once more th*? matter of a suitable |
habitation for the President of the
United States Is being taken up. this time j
seemingly in earnest. There is an Im-1
presslr-n that the President of the United
States la bountifully and sumptuously
boused. The fact la that In our own city
of Wheeling plenty of fairly well-to-do
people have better household accommodations.
Fifteen years ago a sanitary expert
condemned a great part of the white
house. There have been no improvements
made there since. Little by little the :
business of the office has encroached on
the President's private quarters, so that J
now the Chief Magistrate of the United
States Is cooped up In a few rooms altogether
Inadequate for his purposes.
A great country can afford to do better
than this for a man whom it place* in th?*
President's chair. The thin#; to do Is to
build a presidential mansion apart from
the present white house, leaving the latter
to be used entirely for business purposes.
The President should not have
less privacy than the humblest individual.
and he should have all the comforts
that the well-to-do citizen has.
It Is estimated that a suitable residence
for the President could be built for about
1500,000. Certainly this would not be an
extravagant abiding place for the President
of the United States.
Mr. Olnrf.
If the friends of Mr. OIney. who think
they understand the workings of his
mind, know what they are talking about,
Nr. Cleveland's secretary of state Is
putting himself in position to take the
presidential nomination of the Bryan
party in 1900.
We do not suppose that Mr. Olney has
asked Mr. Bryan's leave to take his par
ty away from him. For the present purpose
this has nothing to do with the ques
tion. Mr. Olney la believed to dream
dreams of the presidential nomination
coming from the source named.
It Is reoounted that Mr. Olney was not
of those members of the Cleveland administration
who took a position agains:
the free coinage of silver. On this subject
Mr. Olney was as dumb as any clam.
Neither could it be said that M/. Olney
did not vote for Mr. Bryan. Mr. Olney
did not vote at all. that In this regard
his record Is clear. To sum it up, the
friends of Mr. Olney says that he Is in
perfect position to take the nomination
of the Bryan party, and that he is willlor.
Until now we have thought It best for
Mr. Bryan to run again, knowing that
he could not be elected, no matter how
many times he may run. 2n the light of
this Olney suggestion the situation pre
Bents Itself rather differently.
From the Republican point of view Mr.
Olney has this advantage over Mr. Bryan,
that he would be worse defeated than
Mr. Bryan would be. For this reason it
would give us very great pleasure to see
Mr. Olney Ret the nomination, and to thi*
end he may command our best services.
Fourth of July.
Are we to have any Fourth of July In
Wheeling this year? If so. It Is not too
oon to be about it. We ought to determine
whether we are Kolng to have a
celebration of that great national anniversary,
and what is to be the character
of It .If tve decide to do something
worthy of the day and of ourselves, the
wisdom of the patriotic and thoughtful
people of the community will map out a
plan.
In some cities they have organized
movements which hold from year to year
and are always ready to take up the work
at th*? rlffht time. Their exercises aro
usually made up of the reading of the
Declaration of Independence by ?om?body
who can road It with good effect,
addresses and the sinking of patriotic |
conjru. Some times the addresses aru
made by men of national fame, Borne
times by homo talent, and eomc timca
there la a combination of both.
If Wiieellng would take the matter up
nt once It would be possible to bring here
one or two men of national reputation
whom the people would like to hear.
Properly worked tip It would be a feature
and Wheeling would draw visitors from
miles nround.
The Intelligencer would bo glad to bear
what Its reader* think of thin suggestion.
If It meetn with a favorable response the
Intelligence is confident that the movement-will
command the cordial support
of the press of Wheeling, which Is always
ready to do its share.
Tlir Flrr K?cortl.
The Are record for the month of April
Just past and for tho four months of the
present year, makes a better showing
than that for April, 1K0C, or April, 180ft;
mid th?? record for the ilr?t four months
of this prosont year Is much better than
for the corresponding period of either of
tho two year* immediately preceding.
For April, IH'jj, the llr?* losses for the
Vnitcd Btat'-.i and Canada were a little
over $11,000,000. for April. 1*96. a little
over $12,000,000. for April, 1897, 110.8.1.1.000.
The loss for the first four month'* of 1895
wan $19,613.000, for the corresponding
period of 1S96, $47,620,000. nnd for the first
four months of 1897, $4:'.6:'O.OOi). From
this it apiwar* that the destruction hy
fire for the first quarter of 1897 Is about
$4,000,000 loss than for the corresponding
period of 1895.
At best there are heavy losse*, much
heavier than they would be If there were
a proper system of building Inspection;
and, we must think, larger than they
would be If the fire Insurance companies
would look more closely Into the moral
element of their risks.
In Wheeling we have had one more fire
this year than we should have had. nnd
one more than we would have had If tills
moral risk had been more closely looked
Into.
am Joiin mill Hit
Sam Jones Is holding :? series of meetings
In Augusta, On. The Ohronlclo of
that city extends to Mr. Jones a cordial
welcome and commends his work of
previous years In that city.
The Chronicle says: "There will be no
trouble about the crowds. Sam Jones always
draws. The evangelist has to contend.
however, airlnst the Hplrlt with
tvhlch ninny of hi* ami I (or* come to hla
meetings. Many are attracted by a
thirst for sensation: by curiosity?Just to i
hear what brusque, bitter, personal or
abusive things will be said, and not with
any expectation of toeing benefited spiritually,
nor with any desire to be."
The Chronicle then goes on to say that
many who come In this spirit soon find
themselves In a different frame of mind
ami are led to repentance .It Is true that
a great many of Sam Jones's auditors
an? attracted Just as the AuKihtta Chronicle
says they are attracted. Curiosity
Is the motive power. They know that
Sam Jones doe* say Just the kind of
things which the Chronicle says many
persons go to hear. The saying of those
things Is part of his stock In trade.
I Strip his sermons of the harsh, coarse,
abusive. Irreverent things of which they |
I are largely composed, and Instead of j
' drawing crowds Sam Jones would be
among the most uninteresting preachers.
; There are those who think the Sam Jones
| style of pulpit speaking Justifies Itself.
While there are so many good, true and
] capable men 1n the pulpit, men who do
I n<?t strive after effect as Sum Jones does,
are not coarse, personally abusive or Irreverent,
it hurdly seems worth while for I
any hungry soul to waste time on the
Sam Jones kind of pulpit talking.
If the world had to be saved by that
j kind of talking, a good deal of It would
already be hopelessly lost, for to many
I minds the Sam Jones style Is offensive In
the highest degree and the worst kind of
stumbling block.
Thf Involnntarp M(r??t Kwrtpcr.
We one a great deal to the thoughtful
women of our day. We are not talking
I about the "new woman," but about the
woman who observe* and think?, and endeavors!
to conduct herself on rational
line* and tries to do what she can for the
welfare of other women .who havo less
time or less disposition to think for themselves.
Some of the thoughtful women of New
York have a club the object of which Is
to induce women to wear short skirts on
rainy days. This Is a subject not beneath
the highest Intelligence. Most of
the women of this country are Involuntary
street sweepers. At some time In
the dim past they got the Idea that fash,
ion required them to wear dresses long
| enough to sweep the streets, and they are
doing their best to obey what they supI
pose to be the dictates of fashion.
I The fact is that the best fashion has
cut the dresses shorter, so that street
I dresses are no longer expected to do the
[ work of the hoe, the shovel and the
rtrnoe.** that mwtmn tho streets.
besides being untidy t?> the last degree,
t are a menace to the health of the women
who wear them and to the households In
which they live.
It should not be necessary to organize
| a club to bring about Improvement In
this respect, but since clubs are the order
I of the day and since they arc favored by
j society, let the short dress clubs po
ahead and Improve their opportunity for
good by multiplying day by day.
If the powers had been as smart ns
they were thought to be they would not
have permitted war to begin between
Greece and Turkey. The Issue of the
conflict has made Turkey aware of Its
strength, so that now the sultan Is dls-1
posed to be a little too cocky to please i
the powers. Airs from the "sick man of
Kurope" will not make the powers happy.
In this matter Christian Europe socalled
has been ns blundering as It has
been cruel and un-Chrlstlan.
The estate of the late Thwdore A.
Havemeyer Is a disappointment to those
who thought him a rich man. He leaves
something less than J4.000.000. When a
man spendj a fortune every year for
many yearnanu hmvi-s ia nm ui-iis inwijr
14,000,000 It cannot bo said that from the
money |x>lnt of vlctv his life hua been a
dreary failure. A man of Mr. Havemeyer'*
wealth would be thought pretty
well fixed in West Virginia.
I When Mr. Dryan gcies to Mexico he can
get two Mexican dollars for every American
dollar he happens to have about his I
clothe*. When he come-# back he will
have to Rive two Mexican dollar* for
I every American dollar or It* equivalent
! that he pet*. This will be an object
' lo*8on, but Mr. Bryan, being blind, won't
see It.
Canada !;i bellowing like a buffalo bccauao
Mr. Kipling ha* apostrophized her

and Canada should be glad to know that
*h?- ha* Inspired the muse with her frozen
things.

PKfcSB COMMENTS.
A lluliioita Comlitiir.
Boston Journal (Rep): It is Europe's
determination to throw at least a year's
supply of foreign goods Into America
before the new tariff can go into operation.
The foreign manufacturers are being
assisted In this conspiracy by the free
trading-free coining senators who have
thus far "hung up" the arbitration
treaty and seem to tak?j particular dc
light In defying the will or tne Americttn
people. Imports are coming In In
lloodM whicn recall the palmiest days of
Gorman- dsonism. The regular
steamship lines ure crowded. Extra
boats have had t.? in- put into service
to handle the crush of merchandise.
Our total imports for April are estimated
to be at least $80,000,000. This is
nearly twice the normal volume of our
Import trade. InAugust, 1896. our Imports
were valued at $49,000,000. In September.
October and November they
stood at J50.000.000. But as noon as the
result of the electlones was thoroughly
known and the restoration of protection
was seen to be Inevitable, the foreign
manufacturers began to rush In their
goods In anticipation of the higher duties.
In December, Imports rose to $58,000,000.
InJanuary, 1897, they fell to $51,000,000,
but they rose again In February
to $59,000,000, and In March to $76,000,ooo.
it la the belief of the foreigner*
that if they can thus overwhelm our
markets and prevent the revival of native
manufacturing and the return of
prosperity, the people In their disappointment
will destroy the Dingley tariff
without giving it a fair chance and
again opon their ports freely to Kuro*
peaa products. This is also the hope
and desire of the sllverites. save that
they look to the triumph not of free
trade only, but also of free coinage If
enough foreign goods can be hurried
In to delay or defeat the logical results
Ul pruicvinc irflim??.?.h
Altogether, It Is an Interesting: combination
of the foreign manufacturers
and the bonanza kinjrs to cheat the
American people out of the good times
which they are anticipating. Th*
prompt enactment of the Dinslcy bill
would confound both elements of the
conspiracy. Outside of the senate chainber
of the 1'nlted States everybody is
able to see It.
A Chance for Patriotic Drinoerati.
Chicauo Tribune (Rep): If the committee's
bill had a decent wool schedule,
and did not make such outrageous concessions
to the sugar trust, it would be
much superior to the Dlngley measure.
It would prlve more revenue and provlde
needed protection. Thereought to
be half a dozen Democratic senators
ready to say to the Republicans: "Sooner
than see a bill passed to meet the
views of these Roicky mountain senators
we will vote with you if you will
abandon these excessive duties they
insist on, and which wo know you accept
with reluctance." Democrats, even
though free traders, could do that with
out sacrifice of principle. They know
th^re must bo more revenue and that
?onie kind of a law must be enacted to
secure It. They can let the ranchmen's
senators frame that law or they can
secure the passage of a much Juster and
more reaonable measure. Duty bids
them pursue the latter course.

says: "Colorado boldly challenged any

There Is comfort in the knowledge so

fulfills every wish In relieving pain In
the back, kidneys, liver, bladder and
every port of the urinary passage*. It
corrects Inability to hold urine and

St Louis Globe-Democrat (Rep): The
sllverltes of all partisan shadeq are telling
the gold Democrats to get Into the
Republican party and stay there. The
silver men's spirit Is bad, but Jthelr advice
Is excellent. Just at present the
Republicans are not In urgent need of
any new members, but they will, nevertheless,
welcome all who come. The Republican
party Is a great organization,
with a glorious history and a broad
field for usefulness. Probably for a
long time to come the destinies of the
country wJIJ be In Us keeping, and everybody
who wants his vote to "count"
should get into Its ranks as soon as
possible.

as to command the belief that the coming
summer will witness a most satisfactory
revival and re-cstabllshment of
values.
Conqueror* In Their Defeat.
Springfield Republican (Intl.): No
Greek has anything to regret for the
course his country has pursued. Submission

more glorious than that of the conqueror.
