Bayard, j the United States loses one of its most distinguished statesmen, one who stood f In the foremost rank, and whose distinguished services to his country received full recognition from men or tut parties. During his long public career he held the respect and esteem of the country because of his high character and strict Integrity, and although a Democratic leader of great ability and distinction, t numbered among his closest and nu*t confidential friends many leaders of the Republican party. While Mr. Bayard was a leader of j thought, and a distinguished advocate \ of party doctrines in the highest sense j of the term, he was classed above a j mere politician, and held easily a place r as a.statesman. His career in the sen- c ate, as secretary of state, during Cleve- \ land's first administration, and as Am- c Sojafegland (hiring the socond t . Cleveland regfjne, ha maintained this c ctapdlihg. It 14 true t}?at on one or two , holdfajr the ambafsa- r Worship at London, he subjected himself * to criticism In this country by certain i expressions used In public addresses < which pleased British citizens more than they did American^, nothing was E v detracted from his recognized ability. ( Mr. Bayard was often spoken of In a connection with the Presidential m?mi- j nation, but for some reason or other his ( party never recognized his real meri:s i sufficiently to make him a candidate, t Among his friends he was popular and \ esteemed for his genial manners and personal charms. The people of the country, regardless of party, will unite la regTet at the' passing away of another 5 Of their most distinguished and honored 1 fellow citizens. 1 Our Boys at Gettysburg. 1 Intelligencer readers this morning will And all the details of the dedication of the We?t Virginia monuments on the Gettysburg battle Held, which occurred Wednesday, besides much other interesting matter Jn connection with this even* of so much Importance to the surviving West Virginia soldiers, and especially to the survivors and the relatives snd friend* of those who participated in the famous battle. Historical sketches of the four West Virginia commands that took part In the great struggle, all of them recognized in history for their magnificent gallantry and effective work at Gettysburg, 'prepared from the official records, are features of the Intelligencer's report. Figuring In these pkeches prominently Is the city of Wheeling, where the four organizer! and mustered out at the end of the war. They were the famous Seventh Infantry, with a record during the war second to none In the country far the daring and bravery of its men, the losses sustained and the number of terrific battle* engaged in; the First Cavalry. a battalion from the Third Cavalry and the famous Battery C, lenown during the war as "Plerpont Battery." It would be Impofflble to name tb^ surviving members of theae command*. : but the Intelligencer chronirlos, fir.n ( the retards, the principal ibvrts they j jicnunnou, nvi mow ui uexiy?DurK, dui j during their terms of service In th<.' f war. from the date* of their enlistment , to their muster out. I In addition, will be found descriptions ( of each of the four monuments thnt } mark tho positions occupied by these commands during the battle, and illustrations of the principal one, which , marks the position of the famous "Moody Seventh," Which did such ( splendid work on Cemetery Hill. The exercb*'s at Gettysburg were appropriate and Inspiring. As predicted by the Intelligencer yesterday, they served a purpose, and were peculiarly appropriate In their very nature nt thin time, when the unity ?if tho Nation bar. been thoroughly re-established, and the prediction of Abraham Lincoln, made ? : if ~ >o that 91 Ot thirty-three years ago* as been fijiillled.

May It ever ? so. RjoiJfvclt's Triumph. The noml in t ion <?f TbeOdore Boosevel; !>be the R publican candidate for gov-, rnor of N -.? York was a case of peronal triumph cuch as has seldom been quailed in lis nature in tne history o[ I olitlcs In;the country. In these days 1 : is not a if >inmon thing for a candidate I o receive almost unanimous support rom those, who have not been bis polltlal friends, but who, on the contrary, ave always bten opposed to him. It Is n evidence that the Empire State has, emporarily, at least, demonstrated that he pressure of popular opinion can weep aside all factional opposition to . popular hero, and carry everything efore it, p&rty leaders and all. Roosevelt distinguished himself a reorder in New York City politics, end iy so doing antagonised elements that vert naturally againtft reform with a IK ? f'W wuiagc never icuicu mm, t ,nd he won at least the popular reepect. i 'his roputition he won both In the New I fork leg! Ature unci In the police board ^ t the memtpoUt. 1 These things alone might not have I /on him the gubernatorial nomination < n New York, The war came, and Col- ' mcl Roosevelt left his comfortable of- < Ice in Washington to go to the front at < he head of his regiment of Rough Rl- < lore. Their deeds and the courage and i acriflces of their commander need not i ere be repeated. A11 the country knows i hla magnificent record. You cannot i lown a military fiero, fresh from the icenes of his exploits. The popular lentiment overcame every opposition, former animosities were laid aside. 1 Ml the means used to detract from hla 1 UUlkSt CTUll His ?iiv aonamiiB wu itftil- f macy of his citizenship, which was nade clear and vindicated on the floor if the convention hall, were overwhelmd.and the opposition was caught up and >rought Into the enthusiastic demonstration wtolch made his nomination inanimous. Will this popular hero make a good rovernor? Yes. If honest convictions tnd the courage to carry them out, If >eraonal Integrity, sincere advocacy of rood, government, ability In all respects, f the esteem and the intelligence of the cople?If nil these things count for anyhlng, Roosevelt will make a good gov irnor. Theodore Roosevelt is not a man who < vill heed the dictation of any one. He ( a conscience and brains to back It. ( *e is a loyal Republican. It was a good t lay'a work for the Republican party, , lot only of New York, but of the ( jountry. Deserves Encouragement.

Her >pen doors of hospitality already have i reputation beyond her limits, far beyond, and it is to be hoped that the loral Knights will succeed in their efforts to lmpre?3 upon the state body hat it need go no further to insure a learty welcome. The La Fayette Monument. A proclamation by Governor Atkinion, setting apart the 19th of October as La Fayette day, to be observed by the rcnoois or me siaie, is puDimnea cue* vhere. This is in accordance with the general movement in the country for Jio erection of a monument to General '-.a Fayette in Paris, to be unveiled durng the Exposition of 1900, by which the people are to contribute to the project hrotigh the agency of the educational r.stltutlons of the country. Now would be a good time for the school children to read up on the history >f the Frcnch general* to whom this rountry anJ the cause of American liberty owed so much In the time of the jreat atruprslo for independence. Such >ccaslons ran be made to answer the louble purp le of Instruction In history 'or the youth, as well as to assist In the nain purpose. This country wll hesitate to believe the itory from San Francisco that the arms low being furnished to the insurgents a the Philippines are being furnished rhrough German government agencies. no omeiai information ny mis governncnt from Dew.y Otis confirms such l Rtory, and we may feci assured that :hey have their eyes open. If It should urn out, however, that such a thin* Is ;olw? on, the disarming ?>f the Ituiurrente by our military aiithorlil * would >e the? legitimate result a a npce-sary nove to Insure penoe.

With the coming of the leaitnier season in tne tropica tnty wm >e found ready and willing to go. If Pecknslff honestly thinks the war lepartment Is all right, how does he explain the President's order for an Investigation ??Register. The President explains it himself in lis order issued for the benefit of che lublic some time ago. Every newspsper n the country published it, including he Register and Intelligencer; the forner, however, didn't comment in a way that would lead one to believe that it vas welcome. The President want* to* Lruth. Read his Instructions delivered to the commission, published the ether lay. The Intelligencer Is like all others who want Justice done. Why, on the >ther hand, are the yellow Journals dls:ouraglng this investigation, and advn mating that It be postponed until Congress meets? Honest men never fear ui investigation, and always want the ruth known. That's wfoy the President nade the order. Our peace commissioners are said to 3e receiving a cold shoulder Id Paris, vhere the sentiment has not from the beginning of the war with Spain been trery favorable to the United States, rhe city of Paris should remember thst it is depending largely on the United 3tates for the success of its coming exjoaition; that it learned a lesson which t should profit by la the withdrawal of L rrool mnnv 4hntmflnri? of ifnlliiM urnrth )f trade It enjoyed from our faalftonable wealthy people, when the antagonistic reeling: toward this country was so manifest at the beginning of the late war. But Paris, It seems, profits by nothing if this sort. In the meantime the pcace :om mission will proceed with Its work, jnaffected by the coldness of the atmosphere. The American military occupation of -uba will begin wlthl the next thirty lays. Judging from the reports recelvwl fmrry fhoro I , 1m Jiat the government will not delay matteds longer than climatic und other conditions will make it necessary.

Professor Grei ory Is recognized among scholars t! world over as probnbJy the leading sp< clallst In the critical study and inte> pretatlon of the New Testament. To Americans, and particularly, pe haps, Phlladelphlans, there is in tl case of Dr. Gregory the added feelir of pride and gratification In the fn that he Is a Phlladelphian born, and g< his school, college and seminary, tran ing chiefly in Philadelphia, and wlioli In Its vicinity. On going to Germany to pursue fu: ther his theological studies, he betor himself to Leipzig university, wi< which, as student and teacher, he hi been almost continuously connect* ever since. . He was early recognized ! Germany as one of the most promjslr and progressive studerits of the Ne Testament, and a door of usefulnc: and advancement was opened to hi such as has fallen to the lot of few, any other, Americans.
