It is agreeable to note that the new y
management of the Baltimore & Ohio c,
railroad lias1 begun the work of an- ^
nounced improvements in earnest, and w
that the coming year will witness much
accomplished in the direction of in- J{,
creased facilities on the main system,
and particularly on this portion of mo l(
line. According to the statements made ^
by the oflicials who visited Wheeling ^
yesterday, attention within the coming OJ
months is to be given to improvements ni
of great magnitude. It is cheering and
gratifying news that among the first fo
matters to be attended to is the erec- g(
tiou of the new passenger station In this
city; we are promised, no further delay ^
in this regard, and the new manage- c(
ment fully appreciates the importance lc
of the needs. The proposed new bridges ^
and double track between here and t(
Cambridge are hut the beginning of a. -v
general improvement in this line which tl
will result in a double track along the ^
entire system, and make it one of the u
best equipped lines in the country. c.
Some months since, when the great ,rj
deal was made by which the Baltimore 0[
& Ohio road passed into new hands, it
was stated that millions of dollars c
would bo expended in rehabilitating and ..
modernizing the entire system, and this
promise, according to all evidence and ^
the statements made here yesterday, is ^
to b._- a realization. That Wheeling will ^
receive a large share of the benefit CJ
gowithout saying. For years past aJ
the city has been waiting for a new ,l?
departure of this sort, feeling how much
she was concerned in a progressive pol- ^
IcV. Under the late receivership ^
she felt that her time had come, and it ^
looks wry much as if she Is not to be ^
disappointed, the prospect being even
better under the new regime.
As the details develop there is to bo
no disappointment, for the new man- ^
agement is fully alive to the advantages * Q
of the undertaking. This was the in- t],
tention from the beginning, and the p
programn:? will be carried out. The
business an:l commercial interests of
"Wheeling are to be congratulated on
the outlook.

Touching Sympat by.
The Register is weeping tears of sympathy
for the forces of Agulnaldo, ^
"Whose treachery and foolhardlness
brought disaster upon his ignorant fol- ^
lowers. It declares that the American ,
people "read of the awful slaughter of
nolvrl coitktah flw.I,. hnl.'? r,r? U
rows by our troops with magazine rides
arid machine guns with a sense of hor- ^
ror rather than jubilation." "Our soldlers,"
it says, "must get used to of
slaughtering human beings by wholesale
and shedding blood in rivers, and ln
the American people must get used to ^
reading about it." Then it goes on to ^
say that "General Otis declined to an- j.
swer the request for a cessation of hos- ..
tilities from the cowed and beaten Fil- ^
pinos." The latter is made the text of ^
a lengthy editorial, in which the point
is made that this "brutal" government
refused the first offer looking to pacilication.
All of which is the merest non- .c,
sense and not based on facts. ^
Much as we may pity the deluded
followers of the treacherous, ambitious .
and brutally selfish Aguinaldo, who relied
upon his promises that a victory cl,
over the Americans would be easy, and a.
placed implicit confidence in his bom- |.(
bastic declaration of war against the
United States, only to discover how
basely they had been betrayed, it j.f
should not lie in the mouth of any v
American, nor does it. rave right here fJiin
the office of a partisan organ, that ;v,
the American troops should have quiet- ,v
ly rested upon their arms and permitted ,Jri
the violation of a truce and a treaty f(}
on the p.irt of a conscienceless leader, ....
who counts not the lives of the men
who blindly confide in him in the prose- nr
cution of his personal ambitions.
Why does not this lone sympathizer
with the cause of Aguinaldo t'lll us ' J
what the American command was to (j?
do? Just stand quietly and take'the
attack, carefully arranged days before
and of which they had warning when
Aguinaldo "declared war," after hear- ^
ing from his spies In Washington?
Probably that is what the military ^
genius of the Register would have done. h 1
It wouldn't have resisted the onslaught 1
<it Agulnaldo's forces, because If. would to
nave regarded It an "brutal." It would i G<

r Agulnaldo's plan to draw lire away m:

io Americans know that Aguinaldo, th<
le "patriot," would be guilty of such lie
n infamy?
If our neighbor had published the

eneral Otis "declined to answer the
. quest for a cessation of hostilities."

It will be remembered that some time
nee "Coin" Harvey was appointed rai
lanclal agent of the Democratic na- mn
onal committee (the Bryan wing) by ml1
lialrman Jones to raise funds for the J'
ee silver campaign in 1000. The mat- WQ|
r was considerable of a mirth-prodclng
affair at the time, and since Kfc
ion the more Important national
;ents have caused the public to lose
