The President's Message.
No more important presidential message
Ws been sent to Congress in the
past generation than the annua) document
submitted to Congress yesterday
by President McKindey. It Is important
*nd interesting because of the vital
questions with which it.deals, of the attendant
circumstances, end of the great
number of matters concerning our foreign
and domestic relations, and the accompanying
recommendations thereon,
which it brings to the atjentionof our national
legislators and the people whom
they represent. f
While the message Is of unusual
length. tho character of the subject matter
Justifies that fact, for few Presidents
have had so much to discuss In a single
document of this nature. The characteristic
conservatism. tairnes9 qf expression,
logical reasoning, and wisdom of
recommendations which -have ^narked
the public papers of the President, prevail
In every paragraph. The document
Is not a dreary review of departmental
reports, but deals mainly, almost twothirds-of
it. In fact, iflifc the war, its
causes, its prosecution and its results,
and matters of moment concerning our
foreign relations, concluding with a
splendid review of our domestic conditions
and questions, with Important recommendations
which will give plenty of
work for Congress.
Concerning the war. rifter detailing the
events that led up to it, from the President's
efforts to secure through peaceful
means a restoration of peace in Cuba
and a cessation of the suffering, starvatlon
and! butchery that prevailed, the
Maine explosion, the repeated refusals
of Spain to our demand and that country's
broken promises, the message review*
briefly the saliei|? features of the
conflict, and the achievements of the
army and navy, with eloquent tributes
lo the hero?>3 on land and sea. the surrender
of Spain, and her eult for peace,
the terms of the protocol and the pending
peace negotiations.
The President gives ^evidence of the
full appreciation he has of his own responsibility
and the tremendous importance
of the questions which have grown
out of the war. He makes no recommendations
regarding future policies or
provisions for the government of the
new possessions, very properly leaving
them for the special tqessage which he
will submit with the treaty of peace
when, It la signed. In reference to Cuba
he observes closely the pledge to set up
for the people there a stable government.
abd declares that the1 obligation.*
made by Congress will no: be violated.
In" the meantime, military government*
will be maintained and Congress will be
called upon to deal "With all matters concerning
the policies of the future?the
governments that arc to replace Spanish
misrule.
' Much of the message Is given up to
?"? roln?lnna wl'h fnr M tr r>
countries, and the i>eace which prevail*
between the United States and all the
world, and, certain questions growing
out of treaty refatlon* that call for recommendations
to Congress. Among
these are the South American complications.
Including the matter between Peru
and Chile, the Central American united
republic which was no short lived, and
its bearing on the Nicaragua canal matter.
Upon the canal question th? President
takes a decided stand for the control
of the proposed enterprise by the j
United States government, and in view
of the overtures made by Nicaragua and
Costa Rica, recommend* the maintain
raent of the status quo until the commission
appointed by thfe government repart
a and Congreje baa opportunity to
pass upon the entire qtiosclon.
Our Interest In the Chinese situation,
the President clearly points out. He
see# no need for our Involving ourselves
In the politics of Europe In this matter,
but recommends that Congress appoint
a commission to study commercial and
Industrial conditions In ''hina and to report
as to the opportunity foi; th*? enlargement
of markets then- for our manufactured
products. Meanwhile, our interest*
will be protected In whatever
event* may occur which may endanger
American property a^d llfo and com?
mcrce fn the settlement of pending complications.
Our friendly relations with C?r?at Britain
arr* mad?? the subject of congratuia
tory remark* by the Pre?ld*nt. Tleoo;miriendttJonn
concerning the new territorial
government of Hawaii form an
Important part of th* message. at* do
atao the controversy- with mexico p gardlng
th-* Interpretation of extradition
treaties; ihe repr^entatlon of th<*

A Villainous Faliehood Repeated. 1
In a double l<ad<J editorial of great
length the Register repeals Its Infamous 1
falsehood that Che Republican state ad- 1
ministration Intend* to adopt revolu- 1
ilonary measures to secure a majority '
en Joint ballot In the legislature. It
charges that the secretary of stjrte will
use his offlc6 to make up the roll and ]
leave oil Democrats whose seats ar^ con- t
tested. The secretary of state will only J
net according to law. He will not fol- c
low Democratic precedents and do un- I
Juat things and resort to metnoos m defiance
of law.
But, the most unscrupulous portion of ?
the article referred to Is the biggest portion
of It, and it* wholly based upon the
ReglsterV previous falsehood that the
governor will have three companies of
troops on hand, whep the legislature
meets, to forco*a Republican majority
"at the point of the bayonet." A long
! tirade in indulged In and the governor's
alleged determination is denounced as a
crime."
The writer of the editorial evidently
uld not read the Register's own Charleston
dispatches before he turned in his
copy. For instance, In referring to Its
former falsehood about the troops, the
organ says, among other thing*, .in a
single sentence which occupies a half
column of space: "If the governor
is not fully aware of the stupendous
crime on foot to subvert popular
government In the state, if need be, it is |
I persistently rumored, by force of ARMED
TROOPS, to be called out for the '3
purpose, In his name, It will be well to
fully prevent the attempt to use his ad- f
ministration for this revolutionary pur- t
I pose by plainly and bluntly telling: the i
conspirator? that he will have no hand -j
in It nor give it his sanction." t
I If the Register were as fair and hon- t
| orable as it pretended to be it never '
would have, published these words, In ^
j view of the publication in its news col- j
! umns of the following self-explanatory <
I telegram: 3
CHARLESTON*, TV. V*., Dec. 4. .

I whatever, when the legislature meets, Is
entirely false. -t
Please publish my telegram.
JOHN W. M. APPLETON,
Adjutant General of West Virginia. J
In another dispatch the same issue of ^
the Register publishes the following *
! from its Charleston correspondent.' 3
: Adjutant General Appleton to-day charI
notorized as false the published statement
that arninjcemfnts had been mnde for the
presence of a military force In this city on
tho occasion of the meeting of the legls- ,
Jature. 1
. In the face of these authorttive/le- nlals
from the adjutant general, and the <
i previous denlfclfl of the fakes by Che 3
Register's correspondent, our neighbor, 1
| In another editorial, attempts to excuse '
I Itself from the oillum of a maliciously 1
| false publication, by saying that Adju- l
tant General Apple ton's denial, \vhll? <
I it must be*accepted so far as he Is con- J
[ cerned. Is unauthorized by the governor, ,
| and Inrlmates that the governor win is- i
sue an order for troops which the adju- 1
I tant general will have to obey. How j
does the Register know? What right
I has It to utter these expressions? The
story la made of th-' whole cloth and the
Register cannot crawl out of the JP5te

Wsgas?fitstamaats Mad* by the Company
and by IbilUn.
' A strike la being waged at the West
p Virginia, glass work* In Martin's Ferry,
* which the employes of the factory at1
tribute to two reasons. the principal ?no
of which being that the patent finisher
tiled at that plant apolls too much
ware, and as the men ore paid for the
i* amount of perfect ware which ther turn
out, it reduces their earnings consider'
ably. The aecond reason given is that
the ossorter of the ware, Richard
Veasy, has too keen an "eye for glass of
- the first and second class and the men
S claim that in classifying the ware he
3 asigns much of it to the second class
(for which they receive no pay) which
? really belongs to the first, and for this
- rensnn thev n*k that he be discharged.
e A. J. Smith, secretary of the West
Virginia glass works, in speaking to an
Intelligencer reporter .last night, stated
? that in the finishing of tumblers it is a
- well known fact that in the factories
which are now operating the patent finishers
the shop turns out more tumblers
. with less loss than when finished by
* hand. The company regrets the action
taken by the men and claims that
f whatever grievances they may have,
could and should according to an agreement,
as well as rule In such cas^s.have
been satisfactorily arranged without
stopping work, by submitting the trouble
to the Glassworkers* Association.
In the neighborhood of 150 men are
effected by the strike, all of whom were
idle yesterday. It is expected and hoped
that the matter will bo satisfactorily
adjusted within a day or two and work
resumed.

r Gray, at whom JCcenan shot, John
" Mooney, Dave GIrvun and Mike
" Sweeney, who were In the saloon at the
1 time the shooting occurred, testified that
? they didn't see anybody use a gun nor
knew of any person firing one.
Under the circumstances. Squire Rog'
era couldn't Hold Keenan on the charge
of shooting with Intent to kill, so fined
him J.', and cost* for assault and toaV;
tery. Gray was fined the same amount
1 on a similar charge, and- In police oourt
Mayor Butts fined William McGlumphry.
in whose saloon the affair occurred,
- $20 and costs for Sunday liquor selling,
(i All the fines were paid. Moore's physician
refused to let him l*ave the house,
owing to his wound, which, however, Is
