County Superintendent of Free Schools, GEORGE S. BIGGS. Welcome to the City's Guests. The city of Wheeling cordially welcomes the delegate* and othfr visitors j who have gathered here fur the annual I convention of the Ohio Valley Improve- | ment Association, In the work of which ! this community and its surrounding: ! neighbors are so vitally interested. | While the people of the city, particularly th??se directly concerned in its commercial and industrial Interests, fully realize the significance of the ? movement for the desired improvements of the Ohio river, which have been so long delayed, and their important bearing upon the future prosperity of the entire Ohio Valley, the welcome is not Inspired by a selflshne?s due to this fact. .Hospitality is a characteristic of Wheeling. The trait Is always demonstrated on such occasions as this, on wnaiever mission ibj guesio uuui uiuci towns and states may come. We may 'fee pardoned for boasting that our people are noted for the warmth of their welcome. To-day, to-night and tomorrow the visitors will be made to understand that this portion of the Ohio Valley appreciates the presence of the representatives of the organization of commercial interests, who are giving their time and energies to the promotion of the greatest Industrial interests and the advancement of one of the richest regions in this great country. The Intelligencer reflects, therefore, the sentiment of the whole community in bidding a thrice hearty welcome to all the guests of this occasion. Aside from the welcome to be given I to-day, which will be a true Virginia greeting, and void of stiff formalities, will be the work of the convention, in j which every business man, ever manu- I facturer and every wage-worker has a j direct interest. Judging from what h.is * >..>/?n o?rtir<*d'ln the way of con gresalonal action, mod from the reasonable hopes held out for the future, the service rendered by the Ohio Valley Improvement Association, during Its comparatively brief existence, with the co- J operation of the faithful reprcsenta- j tlves In Congress from the several j etates Interested, has been great enough already to win the gratitude of the citizens of the valley. The valuable aid the organization has given to th* congressmen and senators, who have been 1 working for the Interests of the valley, which are also the Interests of the entire country, warrants the expectation of an early consummation of the projects for continuous navigation In the future. The Wprk of the convention to-day and to-morrow will be of a strictly business character, in the direction of the accomplishment of this great purpose, but, sandwiched between, will be held to-night, at the beautiful Wheeling ?

Count d'AImeoas, who, In the Spanish senate the other day, declared that there were general# who took part In the war who deserved dlsgracc, consented on Monday to n?m<; th?-in. Tii.-y include "Weyler, ftlnnoo and Rivera. He Addi I the name of Admiral Cor vera. It seems that Almenas 1? looking for scapegoats l>y the wholesale, l'orhajw It Ir, true that Weyler should have been disgraced by the Spanish Kovrrnmr.it long ago. l? r<-/%iiv rcADonHlbla for the war which bus re?ulted no disastrously Co Spain. It wm the barbaric policy he pursued In Cuba that aroused the *ym- j pathetic humanity of tho people of thla I y. country, nnd Inspired the uplrlt of Interference. That was the need. It grew Into the feeling which brought on the war. Jtlanco did not Improve the situation considerably, but he did show himself to t>e of a moro humane temperament than TVeyler. Just wherein he hns deaervd dJffjrace from the Spanl.ih atandpolnt nobody know*. It does not appear that Rlanrn contributed any way to make the Spanish cause worse. It wan already inherently aa bad aa poaalble. Count d'Almenaa haa no reference, evidently, to the charge that It was due to Blanco's appeals and representations that the Spanleh minister of marine ordered Cervcra to make the effort to escape from Santiago harbor, for were that the cause of his objection to Blanco, why should he desire Cervera also disgraced? The Spanish count who Is arraigning \uesc uuicers is eviucuuy in ur#u cm nest, and It is easy to tee that be haa some cause, but he should get down to first principles and ascertain if the real responsibility for Spain's humiliation Is, ufter all, to be found among the generals. Perhaps he will discover that the men who deserve the heroic treatment he advocates sit in higher circles than military or naval councils. The geuerals and the admirals simply carried out the policies of the government at Madrid. It is this institution the people of Spain would square accounts with, If they only dared. A Case oi Ingratitude. The Register has a lengthy editorial indulging in a great deal of talk about the plans of prominent West Virginia Republicans. Of course the Register is in the confidence of these gentlemen and knows precisely what it Is talking about. When It states emphatically, as It usually states things which exhibit Its lack of political sagacity, that Senator Elkina Intends to use all his power and aid to sacrifice the four congressional candidates In an effort to carry the legislature, everybody knows It gives the Information direct from a secret conference with the senator, who has permitted the Register to make this statement In advance of all other newspapers, and even before he knew about It himself. The Register's lie?perhaps we should say "statement." appeals to the Intelligence of the people of West Virginia, for all men, women and children know how ardently Senator Elklns desires a Democratic majority In Congress. They know ho keeps awake of nights scheming for It Here's what the Register says, and it Is necessarily absolutely true, because the Register says it, and because It surely has the appearance of having been concocted In ine incurauic waru ui an insane uajnuiu. At the love feast, however. Senator Elkins may (or may not) tell all about his plana In this little matter. He might, also, tell Messrs. Dovener and Dayton, and Edwards and Freer. 11 those gentlemen shall grace the festive occasion, how he Intends to make the election of a Republican legislature paramount to everything else in the coming election; how he will choke ofl I all the congressional aspirations il 1 necessary to secure the legislature, ol I which Mr. Elkins knows too well ho | cannot afford to losf> control. Mr. Elkins can tell these congressional candidates nt the love feast, if he will, that | there is absolutely no hope for them this year, and that they might as well lay themselves down without murmur as sacrifices for the benellt of their party boss. i Those who are familiar with Senator ! Elkins' coursc in the past campaigns in West Virginia, and with the course of the Register in always predicting just what did not come to pass, namely, I Republican treachery and Republican ! Waterloos in consequence, know Just how implicitly they may rely on this "statement" of the Bryanlte organ. The organ's reputation for being in Mr. Elkins' personal confidence, and being therefore able to tell precisely what his plans are with reference to the Repub 11 can cause in this state, Is already established. The above quotation needs no confirmation, even with the merest novice In politics, who can readily perceive, after reading the Register's article, that Mr. Elkins, whose splendid ond successful efforts for Republicanism have been such a terror to the Democracy of the state in the past, has resolved, not only to commit political suicide by handing four Republican congressional districts over to the Register's party, but has given the Register that exclusive Information in advance of even the more pretentious yellow Journals. If Senator Klklns Is really sincere in planning thus to benellt the Democracy ; of the stale, without letting the RepubI lican party know anything about it, the I Register is certainly ungrateful toward I hiir. in giving the matter away so soon. | In other words, the Register shows poor I political dense in divulging plans which [ would mean the Democratic redemption I of four congressional districts, if it had ! n't lit the cat out of the bag. | Senat r Elklns* loyalty, his splendid I leadership, his ardent Republicanism, his support of every Republican nominee In this state, for governor and congressmen down to constable*, In the pout and present, will Ptand even the test of the Register's asinine publication, from which the above quotation in but an item. We trust this modest statement of our own will be taken serlously, in spite of th?? Register's superior knowledge of the subject. Every Republican of prominence In this state, every Republican worker, every Republican voter will be on deck In November. The campaign of falsehood, of misrepresentation and of villiflcation of everything Republican, from the national administration down to local affairs, which hr.s been inaugurated In West Virginia by the Demacratlc press, will be rebuked by the intelligence of West Virginians. Should be Dispenti. The estimate that COO Christian men, women and children were either burned I alive or massacred In the rioting which occurred at Candla. on the. Island of Crete, reveals a horrible story of barbarism perpetrated by the Mussulmans. That so terrible a tragedy could occur under the shadow of European civilization nnd under the protectorate of three powers of Europe, Is <?ne of the remarkable truths of the day. It wm for starving women and children that Spain was driven from this hemisphere by this country. It seems that the ICuropaan powers will yet haw to deal with the Mussulmans, not a* the L'nltcd States did with the Span Ilinv, iMil iin niihiuuu im? umii icwihi; with lh?* Dervish'-*. They should he dlcper*?d arid watiered to the wlndff, literally annihilated. Jleligl.iuji faiuUuclsm which inspires the slaughter of i | innocent babes and defenseless wome fiAould not be permitted to ??xUt with (be borders of civilization. It is regrettable that the President j having trouble persuading the men * , high character he has selected to a t cept the duty of conducting the inve , tlgation he desires, and that he may 1 ; forced to leave the matter fur Congre to deal with. While some contend t) latter method Is the only one to be pu , sued under the law, the President's Jd< would be the more practical and won doubtless satisfy the public better ar ( more promptly. The country will i least give the President credit fur sii cerlty and a desire to get at a fair ar Impartial inquiry. Li Hung Chang's sympathy with Ru sin as against England has gotten hi: into a peek of trouble. iJepoeea rro; power by the emperor he is suffering ! his old age what the foremost Chines statesman cannot help regarding as humiliation. When LI was in Araeri< he made a favorable Impression, ar Americans will regret that he b< brought so much grief to himself. ] should have known enough to cast b lines in English waters. Then he woul have had a good friend whrue syhpi (tales would have counted for somethin Wheeling's gates are wide open to tl visitors who are with us to>day. In tl i midst of the enjoyments of a social m ture the people do not forget the in portance of the purpose which brlnj them here. This fact will augment tl pleasure all around. M. E. CHUBCH, SOUTH.

TALKING ABOUT SNAKES Here la t Story ilmt IXsrouuts a Slut eliamr'n Fnbln Susquehanna, Pa., correspondence < the New York Press: Dick Dranning pet rattlesnake Is the chief curiosity < the Deep Hollow section. Last sprinj when Dranning was blasting bluestor rocks In th'o Great Bend townshl mountains, a great mass of rattlesnak< was thrown high In the air by the dl> charge of powder. Nearly all of tt serpents were killed outright, but one < them, the biggest of the lot, escape with serious wounds. Dranning, out of curiosity, picked u this rattler, carried it to his house an placed It In a box of cotton, and som< how was glad to see it gradually reco\ er. When the stage of convalescent had passed the snako crawled about tl: yard, and in a few weeks ventured Int the house, where It soon became a pe It was named Pete. The big snah seemed to be grateful for the care la\ lshed upon It and endeavored to show In various ways.
