As one ot the outcomes of the war fV;" there has been considerable Indulgence p 'in talk about the supremacy of the >:/ American flag on the teas, and not a I 'it-... little sentiment concerning the matter f; of insisting upon the flq'g floating con' tlnuously over every spot where it has I been run up in the victories gained over Spain. All this is patriotic, and meets with the approval of thousands of AmerIcon dtlsehs throughout the length and the breadth of the land. The principle expressed is inspired by the patriotic ; Impulse "t the country, and the national pride and desire to extend the comK j&erclal influence and field of trade of Industrial and productive America. I In mil this talk, However, ic snouia not toe forgotten that, to be consistent, we shcfcld bear In mind the fact that while > many are protesting against hauling down the American flag from any place on which it has been planted, there are soma staffs from which the American lla*. floated many years ago, and from which it should again float In the same \ Interest of Industrial and commercial development It should not be forgot ten that we once had a merchant marine, and that the American flag floated from merchant vessels In every part of the j; - world: that this wise policy, established V by the tethers, was abandoned, but that <> - the Republican party, in national and state platforms, now stands pledged to restore those mastheads and the Amer| . lean emblem upon them. 1 a# dUnplmliMtlnir dlltlpfl f.ir 1 the enoouragement of American shipJ pin* would accomplish this result in a hort time. The United States is becoming the greatest exporter of manufacv. tured products as it is the greatest (Train Y exporter, and yet it is enough to cau5e ff * blush of shame to come to the faces of Americans to confess that this vast W. trade is principally carried on in vessels I that float foreign flags. We should con; vey our goods abroad, and bring home \ , what we buy abroad in American ships, L. under tho American flag. f;.

Restore the flag on tha seas; revive the merchant marine. _ ^ It Mutt Have Hurt. | When the Register says the Intelll" gencer'* special telegraphic report of r the exercises at Gettysburg was not genuine, but "faked," it shows the malice ? ' which It boasts It docs not posses*. The f, Intelligencer referred the other day to the complete details It published, to; getbcr with Interesting historical ketches of tho West Virginia comr, mands which took part in the battle of i Gettysburg, every one of which had a . local Interest, as the commands were reI crultcd .mainly In this part of tho state. It Is this portion of tho report which > . die Register refers to as a "fake," pre} pared in this office. Certainly it was j Written In thla office, and Its introduc?. tion so stated to the readers?that It was compiled from tho official reports of the adjutant general of West Vlrfrlnia, Issued during the war. If such history Is entitled to be called a "fake" then all history Is "faked." The Intelligencer published this as local matter, tinder a separate heading from that over Uw reenter report, mod with no -data Us* over It When the Register, In it*. chagrin oner * "beat" on as important occasion mlarcprcsenta the Character of the Intelligencer's publication, outaida of the detailed description of the exerclaes proper, which waa telegraphed, it la. we presume, practicing its boaated "honeat" Journalism. The Intelligencer pubilabed the full detaila for the benefit of all West Vlrclnana who were Interested. They were ail facta. The importance of the occasion waa not overrated. RoQ Calk and Dcmajogy. The efforts of Democratic campaigners In this state-to prove by the number of roll calls in the Congressional Record, In Ahlch the names of tlie present members of Congress do not appear, that the represeatativee were not present and performing their duties, not only does , not reflect well upon tbe Intelligence of the aocusera, but la tbe rankest sort of Injustice to faithful and efficient publie servants Feasibly In no other state, nor in any other campaign, has so absurd an effort been made to discredit ?*?? I*? a# ?whh stnral nnrMMt*. tlvea. No one who is posted at all about congressional proceedings has ever been guilty of making use of so demagogic an argument. The Intelligencer has before referred to this business on the port of our Democratic friends. It certainly Is significant of the desperate situation they find themselves in. It ought not to be necessary to explain to an intelligent public that the number of days a member of Congress is absent from the bouse cannot possibly be determined by the roll calls In the Record. These "roll calls" are not, as some may suppose, simple calls made at the opening of eaOh daily session to determine the presence and absence of members. The roll Is only called In voting upon bills, or when a question of no quorum is raised. This might be done as many as a dozen or score of times In a single day, and if the non-appearance of a member's name Is noted, It is manifestly dishonest to charge It up as it appears In one day as showing absence a dozen or soore of days. , There is another reason why a toll call does not Indicate the presence or absence of a member from duty. Every member Is also a member of various committees. A number of Important committees are almost always In session while the house Is in nession, and the! member who may be marked "absent" or "not voting," Is pretty generally within easy access in a committee room, preparing business to be acted upon In the opes house, and can be quickly summoned if his vote is needed. If Democrats will take the trouble to refer to Records of Democratic Congresses they will find the same sort of records of absenteeism of their own representatives. But no Republican organ or campaigner has ever attempted to presume that the public was ignorant enough to entertain for an Instant such an effort tovbring discredit upon a congressional representative. That It should 09 done now uy i^viuouaiiu iwhuviwiu and papers is an Insult to the Intelligent constituency; of our congressional districts. China's Mixed Situation. A 'London dispatch stating: that Shanghai advices are to the cfleet that it is confirmed that the young emperor, Kuang Hsu, of China, Is dead, and that he was killed by strangulation, by poison, or by torture with a red-hot iron being run through bis bowels, gives color to the persistent report which has been contained in the dispatches for a week past. The further statement that the crime was committed by his aunt, the dowager empress, or through her agency, odds interest to the matter. It Is no less interesting that the charge is made that the emperor's dismissal of Li Hung Chang, the ally and tool of the jAnmmii. Amnn???. and th# influence of Russia were the causes of the whole matter. Notwithstanding this Infamy Is laid at the door of the dowager empress, It Is asserted that the results will be that young China will not rest contented with the existing order of things, and It does not end the matter. The fugitive reformer, the friend and premier of the supposedly assassinated emperor. Is under the protection of the British, and there are likely to be some interesting: developments, for Kang Yuwei Is recognized as the author of many -wholesome reforms, among others the opposition to the ancient Chinese custom of binding the feet of women and the advocacy of the Introduction of European dress, and mime other European progressive iu * Judging from somt development# already being made, a touch of humor 1? In the situation In connection with the dowager empress' career. It being alleged that previous to her attainment of royal prerogatives she was a bar-mold In a liquor shop, and at the same time a fanatical devotee of the Chinese religion. This mny have a connection with the death of the emperor, who had pro cllvlties toward the Christian ralth, ana is thought to have burned the Confucian | classic* In the palace. This is a summary of Chinese and English gossip. We are not hearing much from the Russian side of the mat- | ter. That may oome any time. In themeantime, we ore assured toy high Eng- | lish authority that the emperor who will succeed to the throne, If Kuang Hsu is really dead, and who Is not related to the ex-bar-mai'l, the dowager empress, \ Is Yin, a godd-looklng. Intelligent grandson of Prince Kung, and has decldcd i pro-foreign leanings. He will not be a "puppet," like his predecessor, for he I Is known to have a will of his own. Thn point here arises that the dowager empress may have bulldod better than sha ??fftnn mhn maifn I inininvu?iui ?? " ?? ? way with ihe other emperor. The complication? of the Chlneao question are many, and aro attracting an Interest that may cause U?e flpanlshAmerlcan. and the Dreyfus artd the Egyptian complications to become, for a time at leant, not the larger shnrcrs In the general and very much embarrassed European situation. Will the Democratic organs cense their bombast and their random fifing at nothing which contains a campaign Issue long enough to explain why th?? Democratic convention* of several itates ignored the silver Question and ttr* Chicago platform? And while they are ? plaining will they favor the public with the Information u to whether or not Democratic voctories In those states, should so remarkable a thing happen, would, be claimed aa a vindication for the Chicago platform or fur Bryan Ism and all it signifies? The Parkersburg Sentinel, which seems to be about as void of conscience as It is of party principle, cannot hope to do its Democratic cause much good by the remark that, "If the reports be true that Col. John T. McGraw has sold a pleoe of ground In the Interior for a cool half-million in cash. It means that he can get every Republican vote In the Second district if he wants them." This Is no more insulting to the Republicans of the. district than it Is to CoL McGraw. If we are to infer from this editorial statement in a Democratic organ that CoL McGraw la In the market buying votes, and if the colonel Isn't guilty* In Justice to. himself he should muxzle his Parkersburg friend before he proceeds further with his campaign. One of the first statements submitted to the war Investigation commission was that of a correspondent of a notorious yellow journal which hasn't hesitated to resort to any sort of means to prejudice the public against the administration. His statements backed up his sensational statements as published In the New York paper, which, long before the war broke out, was barred from public reading rooms and colleges and the libraries of club houses. Whether his statements are or are not correct will be determined by testimony In which the public has more confidence. Associations sometimes depreciate statements of even honest witnesses. New York Democrats who are threatening legal measures to keep Roosevelt's name off the Republican ticket are destined to learn the danger of handling a boomerang. The question of selecting a candidate to take the place of Mr. Brady, who has | been compelled, for private reasons, t<? j decline the nomination for state senate, should hot be hard to solve with so ) many good men available. The confer- j ees, who acted so wisely before may be depended upon to name a man who will have the united support of the party, i and creditably represent the district.

FEVEB FOB GOLD. The Klondike Couutiy not What It la Cracked np to be, "WASHINGTON, D. C., Oct 2.-Consul McCook has sent the department of, state an undated report from Dawson City (received September 12, 18DS). Mr. McCook says: Dawson City, probably the largest mining camp in America, Is built on a bog or awamp and contains a shifting population, which now numbers about 20,000.. Fogy, thousand prospectors have passed through' here 'llrom the White | and Chllkoot passes. Most of them had i a year's provisions. Hundreds are going away daily, not being able to stay long on account of the cost of. living,, A dinner costs 92 SO, and breakfast and lunoh U 50. Lodging is $1 CO per night in a bunk, and a hotel charges $6 CO for a bed per night The price of property In the business locality is enormous. A lot of convenient size upon the main street can not be had under 140,000. Lots in a bog off Main street bring from $5,000 to $10,000. To rent a log cabin costs $200 per month. With the exception or the warehouses, the theatres, dance halls, saloons, and gambling houses are about the only establishments which can afford these terms. Along the river, ground leased from the authorities brings 110 per front foot per month. This, with the 10 per cent royalty charged on the gross output, yields a very large revenue. Tho prevailing price of labor Is $1 per | hour, but there are so many Idle hands waiting for employment that the supply exceeds the demand, and may bring the I price down. Still, there Is tho greatest activity in the erection of large buildings and warehouses. Olost of the prospectors who are coming to Dawson leave for camps In United States territory, since, apart from the country In the Immediate vicinity of Dawson* which has all been staked off, this is the most promising field. But even here, out of more thnn 5.000 placer cioiniii nna j,uw uviiuu viuuho, umr ?wv bove thus far paid to work. A great many foave not yet been prospected and will hove to be Riven up to the crown, because one condition of the prant Is that every ponion having a claim must work It continuously for three months eac?h year. Ninety days' labor nt 110 a day Is a good deal to risk upon one claim, and a Rood many who can not afford it will surrender them. The creek claims have been reduccd in size from 500 to 250 feet Estimates of last fear's output range from **,000.000 to 112.000,000. Work has largely been confined to Bonanza and Eldorado creeks. Dominion, Sulphur, and Eureka creeks will bo opened up next winter, as they promise good results. One cannot prospect In summer, a? the pits which nro dug th??n All with water. It is by the merent chance that one may strike a rich claim. N'o poor man should sell out and come here. Organized companies with capital will do rmien oeii??r, u? wiv* van ?? much more cheaply than Individuate. In a report dated August 24, Consul MoCook further emphasises the distress among the prospectors In and around Dawson City, and strongly advises no ono to join In tho hunt for gold unless he hap at least enough provisions to last over winter, and enough money In hank 4o take him home If he Is unsuccessful. The consul soys he Is appealed to dally by men who have no money and cannot g?-t work, and he advises such of thorn as nre able to travel to po to 9t.
