Asmuilottof Hswsll* The annexation of Hawaii teems to be the settled policy of the administration, and the conditions there seem to warrant a favorable consideration at it? treaty wtiich It is said President McKin ley will send to Congress. There can toe no doubt that a large majority of the people of the United State* favor annexation. It uf-lll b<* remembered that there was only sii>rht opposition to the moveroest Inaugurated by President HanM at tbe time ?f the dethrone meat of the queen, and thai when President Cleveland reversed the policy of fetj^predecetsor and ordered the Amerlj&x 'Ha* to be hauled down on the ^gfpuida fhere was great indignation the country. are many reasons why the an-^atJcaffon of Hawaii 1m desirable. ?pe? dally at this time. In the first place, ft Is a very rich little country and Is capable of producing much wealth, the augar and coffee Industries being particularly important. No finer coffee in the world is produced than that of the Hawaiian Islands* and the industry is yet comparatively In its infancy. A good quality of tea Is also griiwn. and all kinds of tropical fruits are produced. The resources of the Islands are such as to irtvite investments and produce prosperity to the people. Aside from these consldcrationc the Hawaiian Islands are naturally a part of North America. Their trade relations have always been with the United States. Tba statistic* for 1836. which | are the latest we have at hand.' ?rhow that the total imports and exports of ! Hawaii amounted to $14,188,165 that year, twelve million dollars of this business being done with the United States. This certain!/ shows* that from a com' tnercial standpoint alone Hawaii wuuld I. be a valuable acquisition, and that our ' rebtions with the islands have been - very close. U The fact that the public has been I':. maintained for the past four years, ? peacefully and prosperously, certainly - demonstrates that the people are capable of self government, and that no ob' Jection can be t'alscd that the people |?j are undesirable. J A splendid school system is already : established and churches of all denominatk>tM? dot the islands. All signs of the semi-barbarism that once prevailed on the group have rapidly disappeared, r and In their stead is every sign of civil' iaatif/n rapidly npproaching perfection. The natives are progressing very rapidly, and are in a more advanced state than our American Indians are. Aside from these considerations Ha, wall is desirable for the United States : navy as a strategic point, and in thls| i . respect is or mcaucuiaoie v#iue w mm y 'oouotry. 1^ would, therefore, be almost a crime for this government to permit - any. foreign nation to gain control of the ifllands. Unless action is soon taken > ' such a thing may occur. The attitude of Japan is causing much uneasiness among the people of Hawaii, who are ... fearful that unless their plea for annexat Ion to tiie United States is heard at ; Washington the Japanese government J may take action which will result in the acquisition of the islands by that rv:'/power. L Japan seems to realize the immense | Importance of this ?tep. It will never do r for the Unfted States to sit quietly by ft; and see her carrj* out her plans. The ^Islands could never, in that event be regained without a war, except by purchase. it is not a question of partisan politics, but a question of preserving to the United States that which naturally belongs to her by reason of trade relations, hs geographical location, the interests of American citizen* that arc involved, ami Jts Importnnce an a strategic point, which last consideration la regarded as matter of grave concern among our naval ofliceru. Barnry Kariiata** Death. Thf death of the famous "Kaflllr king," Barney Barnato, ended the life of one of the moift remarkable men the preaent century haa produced. Though hla wonderful tpecul&tlvo career waa rather Hhort, It waa brilliant and successful. Starting In life na the exhibitor of a trick donkey In a circus, by fortunate Investments In the diamond gold fleldf of South Africa, he grew suddenly rich, and by the exhibition of an extraordinary financial genius becatne virtually the king of the London money market. Those who remember the period of feverish excitement during the gfeat sprcUlatlve outburst In the leading cities of Europe when great fortunes were made i- |? ? Aitv rnfnII h.iW tho pertim of Thin man. wlio h*<l suddenly Hpriinpr Into f,tmo, wns tho <"ntrr of It nil. and that li>- wan tho muni talker! of and ftioirt fought after man in Europe. The nlnry of Harnato'a career read* Jlk* thtf romance of Monte Crlnto. But there eeeine Uj tiavc been too much ex? i <*tem?nt crowded Into a brief period, for | | Harney, though nt111 a young man, huc- i cumlied mi attack of nervou* proa1 (ration, the natural reaujt of tlx1 con| tension of speculation which ha* overcome nrnuy a financial genius of hi* clan*. He waa not content to retire with the onormoua fortune of half a billion dollar* he was reputed to have at the heif hth of his suoceaa. He wanted more. His ambition waa to rival the Rothnchllda and become the money power of the continent. Human endurance could not vtand the strain; there waa a breaking away of the mind and now cornea Jhe auiclde'a grave. This waa the end of a man whose meteoric career astounded Kurope. He enJoynd all thla glory for lea* than a half down yean. After all, what did it profit him? An UnMlltd for AMMiilt. The Charleston Dally Gaxette, the Popocratlo organ competing with the Wheeling Register for the position of state organ of the party, says: "McKlnlty is only a little more than three months In office r.nd yet the pension fund lias fallen behind a million dollon. Theee be great day# for the coffee coolen. and bummere, and bounty Jumpen. and thirty day men." What evidence has the editor of the Gazette that since McKinley was Inaugurated the men who receive pensions are not honestly entitled to them? The editor of the Gazette Is a new comer to West Virginia, and is a newspaper man of more than ordinary ability. What element of our population does he think he la catering to in penning such an editorial comment as the above? That sort of business may be still popular in Missouri. West Virginia long since repudiated it and the sectional hatred that prompted it. The article further says: "It goes without saying that all honest old soldlen were pensioned long ago. It la only the bums and dead beat* who wait until witnesses are dead, or their memories are ursttoyed, before applying t)r pension*." This is a gratuitous insult to thousands of old soldiers who were tlghtlng the battles of the Union before this traduccr of their honor was heard of. and wtoo are being granted pensions* as, in their old age, they come to need them and apply fur them, ft is the language of hate and prejudice. It is an impeach men t of the Integrity and patriotism of every *oldier and an insult to every Midler's widow ami orphan child who receive from the hand of the government a tardy recognition of their claims. It is a cowardly assault that no West Virginian will applaud. When Editor Moore is with us awhile longer lie will perhaps learn that sentiments of hatred for the gallant men who wore either the blue or the gray are not tolerated in our politics. His paragraph Is too broad ana swgepjng 19 nna a piace in as respectable a paper as the Gazette is. The Home for Incurables. Parkersburg gets thff state home for incurables. While othtr points In the state had worked hard to sccure the location of this new and importnnt institution. none was more deserving than the successful city. By reason of her location and importance Parkersburg possesses many advantages not found in many other towns of the state. Parkersburg offered rare Inducementn in the shape of 17,000 and a free site of from twenty-five to one hundred acres. Charleston and Huntington made inviting offers, also, but it is probable that the commission took into consideration that the former already had the state capital and the latter another state institution?MVirshall College. Wheeling having made no effort whatever to secure the home, was not considered, and can, therefore, without heartburnings, congratulate her sister city on her success. In order to secure the advantages to be derived from the establisment of a state institution in its midst a community must make some effort In the way of offering Inducements that will make Jt to the advantage of the state not to place it somewhere else. This is what Parkersburg did. It is a good example for other communities to follow whenever the state is looking for a location for a public institution; likewise, when new Industries are coming Into the state. Captal goes where it is most welcome. Mr. George Vanderbllt's English representative, 1n charge of Bllttnorc during Mr. VanderbUt'a trip abroad, received o sharp lesson In American courtesy from President McKJnJey. The Brltlsher's^it(empt to exclude the newspaper representatives who were the President's Invited guests from the enjoyment of the hosptfolftleg extended to the presidential party, may have been In accordance with thiit functionary's Ideas \vhlch he Imported from the other side of the water, but they were not tn accordance wfth the American custom In such matters. Mr. Vanderbllt himself, had he been present, would have had a better understanding of t?he proprieties of the occasion than his representative exhibited. Mont de Chantal has passed another mile-post in Its career, during which It has earned n fame which has sprend throughout the country, carrying with It the name of Wheeling an being the location of one of the foremost Institutions for the education of young ladles In tho country. It Is the appreciation of the Wheeling people for what Wonl do Chantal, the Llnsly Institute and other similar Institutions of learning iu pllshed that make the annual commencement nenson here an occasion of great public Interest. We have heard the last of the boundary dispute between Vonesuda and Kngland, the treaty hnvlng beon finally signed. This diplomatic settlement of a question which nut long ago threatened the pence exiting between the United States and Englnnd, and canned President Cleveland to reaffirm the Monroe doctrine, Is something of a triumph for American diplomacy. It Is one of the few things that will go Into history reflecting great credit on the Cleveland administration. The free traders who arc loft In the country, who grow excite^ over the in?re suggestion of a duly on ten, and urgo that as there Is no tea Industry In this country a tea tariff would be an unreasonable taoc. nr?- mistaken. Tea Is grown In considerable quantities In some of the southern states, and tho climate and Mull of a large portion of the country It adapted to It. What Is more, It 1m superlor to foreign tea*. With proper protection ntraliiHt the Cheaply produced tea of ??thcr countries. which comes to us adulterated, the development of the iiv dustry in this country will rapidly foil low; and who wouldn't prefer the pure American article to the adulterated product of other countries? The appoarance of Bryan In New York hua already had Its elf cot. A split has occurred among the sllverltes themselves, gfowing out of Bryan's refusal to talk tree silver because U la the Tammany scheme for him not to drive sound I money men out by doing 00, and now ! there is talk of a.separate convention at | wnien me ruaicai irec siivcrno ??.. | bring in the national Issue. Tammany ! should have let Mr. Bryan remain at hit , Nebraska home. ' The arrival of a case of yellow fever In New York harbor did not cause a ripple of excitement. So perfect is our I quarantine system now that an event which a few years since would have caused a panicky feeling, scarcely re! celves a passing notice from the publlo. MALONEY AND THE QUEEN. ; New York Sun: "Dor queen from England Is going to get another birthday putty soon," said the sinker roan In the Park Row restaurant, addressing Sarsaparllla Rcllly, had just sat down at Policy Bob's table. "She had others." said Rellly, "and if she kapes on livln' as long aa she has lived she'll live to outlive you and I, Sinkers." "How Is dot?" Inquired the Sinker Man. "If she outlives you und me und ve lived twice as long as she lived und she keeps yet living. she vlll be alive vhen ve live? I don't understood vhat I understood. How old Is she. anyhow?" "Well, I'd have ter go back too far ter get at It." said Rellly. "but yer ought to know that It's Impolite ter arguo about a lady's age. There's one thing, though; If It hAdn't been for the Irlnh she'd have been dead seventy years ago." , "How's dot?" asked Sinkers. "w oil, I'll ton yor now it is, answerea Reilly. "I'm Irish, and me mother before me vu IrlHh. and her mother waa Irish, and her mother'* mother's great grandmother's mother waa Irish." ,"Vait!" interrupted Sinkers. "You ro too qtiik for me to catch up. und I'm yet two mothers behind from your first grandmother." "I'll put It plainer," said Reilly, "by skipping all my grandmother's mothers cross to mo great-groat-grandmother'* mother's father. Tat Moloney, who waa a soldier in England whin th' queen was a bafly only 15 months old. One day, it was on a Monday morning, I think, or on a Tuesday or Wednesday, about 9 or 10 o'clock or II?" "Or mobbo between half past six," Interrupted Sinkers. "Probably Well, as I was saying, my great-great-grandmother's mother's father.

'I wonder what who's doln' now.' meanin' bin *rlrl?'" "Dot vere your frrand mother's father vhat he tlnks About," wild Sinkers. "No," said Rellly, "but but me greatffreat-Rrandmother's mother's mother. Well, Maloney wa&A kind of thlnkln' av whin they'll pit married, nnd all av a midden he saw a very small pony carriage in which there was a child." "I know." said Sinkers, "dot vere vhat he showed hlm's pood sense. He could see pictures in the clouds Of starvln' babies, und he vanted to decide yet If he could support a wife." "Not at all," replied Rellly, "ho Just saw this child In life, and th' pony was led by a pace, while a lady walked on one side and a young woman beside the chaise. A big dog came along. got belli' pony's less and frightened the pony, who started off, knocked th' kid out av th* carriage. an' th' kid would have been kilt by th* horso if Maloney ' had not caught It." "Who. der horse?" nsked Sinkers. "No, th' baby; hi* raught ho1<! av th* baby's dress. and wld an old-time Rellly twist turned the baby upsldo down and landed it In the arms av th* lady. He wan told to follow the carrlge to the palare, where he learned the baby was the princess who lived to be Queen Victoria." "Ach. my!" exclaimed Sinker*. "How nice. Really, Rellly, you should a story book writer bo. Hut what did dey did for Maloney?" "Give him a guinea," said Rellly. "Vhat, a peanut-stand man?" "No.not an Kyetallan guinea?an English one?a piece av money." "How little," sighed Sinkers. "I should believe Maloney vouldn't told vhat Is so small. But he vere Irish." "Yes," said Rellly, "Irish to the back bone. 1 think Queen Victoria ought to remember that an Irishman saved her life, and dn something for them. She might celebrate her birthday by freeln* Ireland." "Mebbe she don't remember Maloney, 'cause she vere too young." said Sinkers. "But 1 should have believed her mamma should something more give us vhat she did; don't you?" "Well, what kud any one expert from th* mother." said Rellly. "for sho was a , Dutch woman and Ahc kem from Socks f'oburger, where th' bock beer kem from." "Now you're commonclrf' strain." re- . marked Sinkers; "why don't yer say , Ireland wan homed In Germany; why don't yrr holk?r my vlfe's mother vim your grandfather's servant In Ireland, < und more Ilea?

THEY lOK'T SNEEZE Peculiarity of Colorr<l PeopU Wol CJenrr llr Kiiown. Washington Star: "It was Pro?. Schroeder, of Louisville," volunteered a surgeon to u Star reporter, "who first ventured the opinion that the negro never sneezed. The statement waff inado In reply to aque?tlon of Prof. Gross,the famous Philadelphia surgeon, and in whose memory a statue was recently dedicated In this city. A smile passed around the listeners, and Prof. Schroeder, observing that there was some doubt ubout his statement, reiterated it with some force. He then explained that while there were no structural orrnngements about the breathing apparatus of the colored race that had been discovered which prevented him sneezing, It was a fact that the colored man did not sneeze, though he could be made to sneeze by the use of snuffs, pepper, or other Irritants. He had, he said, never made any experiments In that connection. He also said his observations had been confined to colored propie In the southern states. Atmospheric or other conditions must exist elsewhere which might cause him to sneese. but none existed naturally in the south. The debate on the subject occupied ! nearly an hour at a meeting of the International Surgical Association, which j held a convention In the old Lincoln hall some years ago. Since then I have of- j ten spoke of it and nsked my friends to I notice, and though I have directed the i attention of hundreds to the subjcct. I have yet to hoar the first one say that 1 they have heard a negro man or woman I sneeze. By negro. I mean a black man | or woman. I believe that mulattos sneeze occasionally, and the nearer they j are to white the more frequntly they I ineew, out even uiey are ie?? sensitive to influence* which produce sneexing than the people of the white race. It has been observed also that Indians sneese very seldom, while Chinese sneeee 10 times as much, even, as the white race." _ A RrmliiliMiicr.

Any honest physician will tell you j that there Is but one way to get Increased fleth; all the patent medicine anG cod liver oils to the contrary notwithstanding. Nature has but one way to Increase i flesh, strength and vigor of mind and j body, and that Is through the stomach by wholesome food well digested, i There Is no reason or common sense In I any other method whatever. People are thin, run down, nervous, pale and shaky In their nerves, simply because their stomachs are weak. They may not think they have dyspepsia, but the fact remains thut they do not cnt enough food or what they j rat Is not <iulckly and properly digested as It should be. Dr. Harlandson says the reason Is I because the stomach lacks certain dl-1 Restive adds and peptones, and deficient sortition of gastric Juice. Nature's remedy In such cases Is to supply what the weak stomach larks. Then? are several good preparations which will do this, but none so readily as Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, whloh are designed especially for all stom- I arh troubles, rod which cure nil digestive weakness on the common sens* plan of furnishing the digestive principles which tho stomach larks.
