The comments that are being: made by the press of the country on the sue- i cestful administration of tie state department by Secretary of State Day, as vindicating the Judgment In selecting him over the criticisms of those -who didn't know Judge Pay quite as well as the President did, have given rise to further comments concerning the manner in which the distribution of the most Important diplomatic places has been made. It is a matter or common comment among: conservative Democratic papers and statesmen, as well'as "by the Presl- j dent's own party friends and supportera, that In the selection of the diplomatic representatives of this country to | the great European powers he has acted solely with a view of sending abroad i men of the highest merit, and who have ) been in the past not so much noted* for j their abilities as political leaders as for their attainments and knowledge of diplomacy. The official records have, In every instance, borne out the wisdom of their choice and Mr. McKInley has been successful in meeting the public expectations In every 'case. This applies throughout the diplomatic and confcular service generally. Referring to the proposed transfe- of Ambassador John Hay from England to Washington, to succeed Mr. Day as secretary of state, the Washington Star (Independent) Is led to can attention to the "admirable manner In which the President has managed the leading diplomatic patronage." The Star recalls that while the names of many accom' pllShed men were presented to Mr. McKlnley as proper for the ambassadorship to England, he chose Mr. Hay, whose sole recommendation was not political leadership, but "his "excellent equipment for the post." This selection was applauded throughout the country, and now we read in London dispatches that few representatives of the American government have left I London followed by so many cxprcs- I slons of regrets over his departure as ' those which will follow Mr. Hay. Other similar cases concerning the appointments made by President McKlnley In the service are referred to In a like manner?those of General Horace I Porte*, ambassador to France; Andrew ' "White, ambassador to Germany, a man of letters and In already good standing | (before his appointment) at the Berlin i court; General Stewart Woodford, who handled matters ko well at at nana umu the declaration of war; Mr. Straus, who was chosen on account of important business with Turkey which he was very familiar with, though he was a Democrat. The point made by the Star Is that the President chose three men, and others of the same character In the dlplo- ' matlc service, not because of their prominence as party leaders, biit because of his belief In their peculiar fitness for the duties. There Is no reflection In these commendations upon the equal ability of the distinguished leaders of the Republican party to nil these places. The point Is 'that the President himself made choice of those he sent to represent the country in this important service on his own knowledge of and in his own confidence In their equipment, and uninfluenced by party con* (deration. The Right Vayto Begin. One of the moat important among tho Hurt atepe toward the regeneration of Cuba and the transformation of the people from the condition under which they hove been living to ono of enlightenment will be tho opening of the Santiago public echoola at once, and the provltlon for teaching the English language. Thca? echoola are to be conducted upon tha principle of tho public school system or ine muiuo uj. mu ouivu, and will bo liberally supported from the [ rtvenuc? of Santiago. ThI* policy will fit pursued throughout Cuba and Puerto RJco. Notwithstanding the fact that educa< lion in Cuba, under Spanish rule, has TO. ? - been nominally compulsory, the Spanish ct government has never supported' the le oonjmoo school* and oommon educe- to ttos, as lr. Spain, has been woefully nog- ti looted. The policy of Spain ha* been to tu seep iib tuojecui iu osjeci oi at borne aa well aa In her colonies. The military governor of Santiago, General Woods, Is beginning on tbe right line bt of exerting the civilized Influence of tc America on the Cuban people, in order bt to make them appreciate the blessings ot of liberty, now that they are to have It, through the ofllces of tha great repub11a The Cuban? wlli not be wholly ca. pafbleof self-government until the American standard Is atopted. - Publlo w schools, liberally supported, will accom- cr plish as much as many another course ?P to be pursued ^ One of the peculiarities of the Spanish v,e rule was the educational requirements, Pc without a dollar of the money bled from the people being given for public schools. The changed conditions, after Spanish to rule Is formally snd completely ended to In Cuba and Puerto Rico, will quickly solve problems which are Just now -being Jjj gravely discussed by some Americans, gr not a few of them in sn unnecessarily pi pessimistic spirit J? The United States government has V never yet failed to deal successfully fh and on correct principle? with such d*1 questions arising concerning the inhab- fil itants of annexed territory in the past. ^ The way is Just as easy to-day as it was when we gained other territory, with w elements in the population which caused apprehension on the part of opponents of annexation. an ' 8C Hard to Believe. bo The utterances attributed to General ed Miles in a special dispatch originally ca published in the Kansas City Star, from rn Ponce, Puerto Rico, are astounding t01 enough to demand proof that they are genulnev, What General Miles is quoted Bl as saying concerning the war depart- 4' mem officials and his own position at jjj Santiago during the campaign, la en- jj tirely at variance with what he has ap been quoted aa saying on former occapo siona. IC, The correspondent of the Kansas City su paper places General Miles In the light of claiming 'that he was In actual command of the forces at Santiago, In spite ap of the statements to the contrary at the -wl time, some of them by himself, and yet th he is pictured as fixing the blame for all ?v the abuses there, which led to so much suffering and disease among the troops th' upon General Shafter. The point Is, If General Miles was present in Ms ca- 01 pacltpr as general-ln-chlef, and was in r actual command, why should he bold Shafter responsible for the cause of any ' complaints that have been made? 1 The public will be slow -to believe that General Miles has been correctly report- tin ed. There seems to be some mlsunderstandings, if not actual personal feel- ? ings, growing out of the Santiago campaign which will have to be adjusted ] officially In some way. In .the mean- is time the public will do.well to suspend to Judgment until the real '/acts develop, git Beyond a doubt the whole matter will 11c I hi* mnrfa rlAflr In snmo wn.v boforo Tftnir. va and all responsibilities will be properly Jer nxea. ti! 9 j Chairman Dawson's Remark. Re Chairman Dawson, of the Republican state committee, and secretary of state, j is quoted as saying, when asked as to do the political outlook In West Virginia: * "Wo are going to win, because we de- onj serve to win. We deserve to win be- wo cause the national and state adminls- ne1 tratlona have been faithful to their wa trusts. They have .served the people ? faithfully and honestly. I think I know blc something of the political history of this ^ state, and I say emphatically that the op] state has never had a more faithful, a i conscientious and economical admlnla- * tratlon than the present one." It Is a matter of fact, confirming Mr. V|f Dawson's assertion, that the conduct vol of the eta'te ofllceo has been with a view to guarding the state's Interests from an j economical standpoint, and the laws tjjZ have been executed faithfully and hon- be estly. Reports of the various state ofll- Hg cers, when presented to the public, will po; bear this out Pew men in the state tin are more familiar with the past leglsja- ln< tlve history of West Virginia and the for affairs of the government of tne atate Th than Secretary of State Dawson. He j Is capable of making comparisons, and bf* they are very likely to b?? made from t0* the official records. 11 g * slo A characteristic of Democratic county conventions in this state this year is the red hot temperature which prevails as JJJ a rule. This is particularly true in the ouj larger counties. A few days since Ka- tor nawha county witnessed a turbulent convention In which chairs figured as his weapons, and In Wood county, on Tues- his day of this wreck, It Is recorded that fac- ^ tlonal bitterness hold sway to such an 1 extent that a remurkably weak ticket resulted. The trouble grew out of the C turning down of Parkersburg D<W>- no crate by the country districts and the " city bosses are in a state, of mind over " the matter. mj to As the dates for the state fair ap- ^ proach the public Interest Increases, and the Indications arc that, weather permitting, one of the most successful 1 n exhibitions in the history of the assort- lie utlon will be the result of the prepara- 1)y Hons that are being made to make It so. The attractions In the way of agricul- Cn tural exhibits and* farm animals, will be especially notable, and all (he custom- Ho ary features of the fair will be up to the Ho sianunru. nia buhc wi unuaiuii .n An *v.iys a Kreat one for Wheeling, and thl* year the number of visitors Is likely t,> 0 be largo enough to satisfy everybody. ?
