'The probability that the peace treaty 0111 be confirmed at tbc present session of ?he senate increases each day, even the opposition ami those who advocated delay by lengthy debates coming to the wise conclusion that the treaty should be ratified as soon as practicable, with h ft view <o the settlement of the question of the disposition of the Philippines at. ter they come formally into our posses Ion. This Is In line with' the recommendation 1)y the President and r: cerv tatoly nouM avoid complications to a ' large extent. : Opposition 'to the treaty does not settl^ these questions, nor con thty be set tied until they are presented for sctfloL* ment. Propositions for the government ; of Cuba, the Philippines, ftnd Puerto Rieo cannot to considered until the terms of the treaty are compiled with, s,' .We cannot legislate for territory that cannot be ours until the treaty Is ratifled by both governments. To reject the ;yfreity would reopen the whole matter ^ and involve us. in untold complications mtpAra TWa realization Is |;j affecting the opponents to the extent i&tb&t they are growing: in the belief that Pi ratification is the first thing to be done, fetn order to.relieve the country of em|\.t>arraeement and to leave the problem* ? of government to come up for settlement I' after proper deliberation, free from outii? elde Influences?in short, to eolve quev[ tions In our own way and by ourselves, ft * In thJ? connection. It is interesting to ; note that the friends of the treaty in the senate, in. their close observance of the developments if the opposHlon, have found that the names of the signers to I the memorials against the annexation i of tho Philippines presented to the senate ! number less than 2,000, distributed among about twenty-two states, nearly f *hAe-fourths of them, coming from the ^ single state of Massachusetts. The retnaanlng 500 are distributed among the BHI&m*' ta-pntv.nn.? states, which furnish pfrom one signer to 101 each, ihe state of iWest Virginia furnishing1 the latter figure. This does not speak well for die ii.?trength of the cause of those who were 'v going to present to the senate a national . protest which would take in the masses of the people. This disappointed expectr' atlon Is cot without its significance. fe Libel of the Attorney General. In the face of a Leiter it publishes, [fi- written by Attorney General Kucker, -y- denying the falsehood that he said that ia urovornor ho would not per OT7?: ? - snft Logan, of Monroe county, to -take ; 'toil scat In the legislature, even If ft bej i came necessary to use the military force p, to prevent Wn> from entering the capicol. the Register, In the adjoining column editorially repeat* th* Hbel and f. refuses to accept the attorney general's denial. | Thla is honorable fairness with a venjj geance. Mr. Bucker declares he never ' uttered such a sentiment and that the story Ss made out of whole cloth, but [ the Register sticks to the falsehood furnished It by Its Charleston correspondent. Notwithstanding Mr. Ruckerstates , over his own signature what he did say, j and his reasons therefor; that he desires | the Logan case decided by the supreme & <*?urt of anneals of the state, and that it that court decide* Logan was elected no one -will more cheerfully submit to the decision than he, the RcgJjttr, on the lame page of lui paper, reiterates that statement attributed to the attorney general, and for which It has not the slightest grounds for believing. * The statement from Mr. Rucker, published toy the Register, but discredited I toy it to make good Its libel, declares that what he said was: "It I were governor of the State, Joseph E. Logan, who was not elected by the county of Monroe, should not take a seat in the legislature ot West Virginia untH the matter was tested by the proper authorities (meaning the supreme court, and not the military authorities, as construed toy the Register). He then mates the case as follow*, ivhlch wo repeat In order that our readers may understand the situation and the justice of the attorney general's position: I have proved my principles by my nets, nnd before the supreme court urged that court to hear this rase; 1 mean the cose of Logan from Monroe county. and not preclpltnto revolution, anarchy, porjury and outrage on the people of West Virginia. J/igjn'n ooun! sol appeared In lho court and refused to consent to the hearing of the cane or to submit It to the court, but nrgued against submission and persuaded two members of the court thot he trs* right, and the can" should not be heard until after the legislature adjourns. at which tlmo there will be no necessity or object 1n having n decision of It The circuit court of Monroe county. In open session, decided that I<ogun wan not ejected, which decision has never been re vers fid. nnd I said first what I now su(/, thnt If I wfre governor.ho should not have this iwit In the legislature unless he was milling to submit his case to the only tribunal which ha* the right to review and revfrtc the circuit court of Monrocounty, and that Is the supreme court of appeals of this state, and If. that court decides lie was elected, no one will more cheerfully submit to Its decision than I. .With this statement of the attorney general of West Virginia, published In an adjoining' column, the Register has the unfairness and audacity to aay editorially. after placing upon- It a violent construction about its being revolutionary: "Attorney General Rucker's violent declarations are uncalled for, are far from comporting with the dignity of fet* Allied < nr, i'?v*?lM*l.iifirv In their spirit and Incendiary in th?!r ten| den cy." Let the people compare the statement of the law officer of the state with this comment of the Register and Judge wftpm It la making ute of Incendiary l language. Was there ever ranker mis. representation exhibited In the polities of this state, or any other state? Was there ever an exhibition of a more dishonorable effort to stand by an infamous libel In the face of a perfectly Just and legal proposition to abide by a decision of the highest Judicial tribunal, an appeal to which has been postponed for decision to a date after the legislature adjourns? What do the people thinlc of the comparative justice of the stand made by the attorney general and that of the Democratic organ and leaders? Which Idea is the more revolutionary? Brynn Not His Choice. In connection with Col. Bryan's resignation from 'the military service and Ma immediate re-entry Into politics, looking <o 1900, It Is Interesting <o note that Democratic leaders, particularly those arhn nr? ofllnlallv eonnectpA with Ihft national organization, are not welcoming him back to the leadership wlth>#pen arms. West Virginia Democrats arc not altogether disinterested in- the develop* ment of matters, considering the fact that the Jfsi^authoritatlve declaration of hostility against Bryan from an official source comes from Senator Faulkner, who, as chairman of the national congressional .executive committee, maybe regarded as fairly reflecting the views of others In authority. In an Interview published in the New York Herald, concerning Mr. Bryan and his new platform, referred to at length In yesterday's Intelligencer, and his asplrations for the nomination as an antiexpansionfet la 1900, Senator Faulkner says: "I do not wish to discourage Mr. Bryan, or to interfere in any way with the* realization of his ambitions. I am aware that he is still a candidate for the Democratic nomination, but I will say frankly that he is not my first choice, for I have In my mind a man whom I regard as the ablest leader the Democratic party can boast of to-day. I do not care to mention hia name, but he_ ia now a member of the United States" senate." This expression carries with it a slffniflcance which will doubtless be appreciated by the friends of Bryan in West Virginia, Mr. Faulkner's own state. Much of the opposition to Mr. Faulkner 1n the state, and wMch practically ellml-, hated Mm from the senatorial list in Democratic circles, is understood to have resulted from hia well-known lack of appreciation1 of Bryan's abilities and his capacity a? a leader. It has not been a matter of certainty that Mr. Faulkner ever wu ?* curuwi nu(i|iurici ui . Bryan, and It will b.* recalled In this connection that the free silver league and the Bryanlte managers have not been cordially disponed toward Mr. Faulkner, having openly Charged him with prejudicing th^ case in 1896, and with having sacrificed Bryan In the congressional contests in certain states. How true this Is, we do not know, but It Is a matter of record that the senator tvos warmly denounced shortly after tne election. The utterance above quoted leaves no question as to Mr. Faulkner's attitude. He does not state the name of the senator whom he prefers tovBryan. He does, however, proceed to show how little faith he has In the Xebraskan's proposition to make anti-expansion one of the features of the 1900 platform 1n addition to free sliver, when he further along declares that he does not believe that "the question of expansion will cut much figure In th* next national election." The Herald also quotes Representative Swansln, of Virginia, as viewing Bryan in a different light, and as declaring: "Bryan Is our natural leader, and I am In favor of nominating him again on the same platform." He regards Bryan as the strongest Democrat In the country, and that "If we renominate Mm on the same Issues, with the addition of this new question of expansion, I believe we will win and get the decision." The Indications are that Mr. Bryan win have a light on his hands to retain the leadership, but with the sliver wing still dominant In the organisation he has the chances In his favor, Mr. Faulkner to the contrary notwithstanding. "Who will haul down the flag where it has been planted?" a sited the President In his speech at the Atlanta auditorium, In speaking to eight thousand southerners. Cheers from the great audiences were the response. "Who will haul it down? Answer ine, ye men of ar. Mil. U'hrt I si In r>i*h* U'hxt will haul It down?" again asked the President, with dramatic fervor; and the Indlscrlbable ?cene of enthusiasm in response has inspired the nation; the shouts of approval have been echoed throughout the country and thrilled the heart* of millions.

Baltimore Sun: In the Woman's Jour-' | nal the advancement of woman in fifty i years is summed up by Col. T. W. Hlg ginson, and It Is found that woman has very considerably assimilated herself to man In her education, financial condition and social habits. No more is heard of the old argument that woman is unfitted for collegiate education. The old prejudice against girls' schools of high grade has vanished, and co-education has gained wide acceptance in all parts of the country. In employment women have invaded men's sphere. They have almost displaced men as teachers in th$ pubSc schools of some cities. In library work, bookkeeping and typewriting woman begins to hold the field, and there are very many lines of business in which she is numerous. Our census reports show a permanent changed habits In the direction of substituting women for men in various occunatlons. As women have become bread-winners they haw become much mora self-reliant than formerly. Women are found to make good treasurers of societies. They now more frequently have an allowance, and keep bank books, even when not bread-winners. The legal position of women as respects property has been greatly changed in their favor. The movement has, perhaps. gone too far in states where husbands are still liable for wives' debts, while wives are not liable for husband's debts. Socially woman has held her own and taken something of man's customs. She ; has her clubs in some sections in great ' numbers. Thene have given great oppor-! tunity of work, study and mutual co operation among: women, xney nave aocustomcd women to leadership, to rule* of order and to business methods. Much of their work may be thus ] far elementary and superficial, but this ! evil will cure itself. j Malicious Misrepresentation. ! Charleston Mall Tribune: Some of the Democratic newspapers are credit-1 Ing Attorney General Edgar P.

This Is manufactured out of tht> wimif* <*inth. nnd Is a fair samplt* of the distorted frenzy of the Democratic ! press of this state on the current polit-! , leal situation. Instead of giving expression to the statement credited to him by the Democratic truth-distorters. Attorney Gen| oral Rucker ha? declared the very opposite. that he would employ troops, had he the power, to nee those members of the legislature whom the courts had declared elected, seated. What General Rucker said was not In defiance of the courts, but in their support. Instead of making: an as! sault on them, as the Democratic mls quoters say he would, General Rucker has placed himself In the attitude of obeying and sustaining the courts. | Dusk and Dew.
