WHEELING, FEHRUARY l.'J, 1801L
Hank Part isansliip.
The Register quotes an article fror
.the Charleston Democratic organ, ill
Gazette, Jn a weak effort to make :
appear, somehow or other, that th
Democratic party inaugurated the fre
school system in certain states, becaus
they happened to be in power in th
states named at the time the law wer
Into effect. The logic of this rath?
amusing allusion is that the Republ:
cans were opposed to the free school!
and the Democrats were obliged to tak
possession and establish them. I
Mother words, the matter of supportin
free schools Is a partisan question, an
if wo had not the Democratic part
there would be no free schools in an
state. It seems strange that a reputa
l)le newspaper should raise such' an un
worthy point, in view of history.
As for West Virginia, when the Dem
ocrats came in power the state of Wei
Virginia was but ten years old. and ha
not yet recovered entirely from the el
fects of the war, and from the effects i
the rule of eastern Virginia, whose pol
icy Wiu, opposed to free schools, so fa
as the sentiment*was retlected by ox
presslons of her leading men in powei
Bo that as It may, the attempt to mak
politics of the matter of the establish
ment.of free schools, has no basis ;i
all. The people have been practical!
unanimous for the public schools sys
tem in all progressive states. It ha
never been made a party question b
The Gazette makes the point, and
foolish one it is, that because certai
states?had Democratic legislatures a
the time the system was adopted th
party should.be credited with it. Doc
it necessarily follow that Republican
when in power repealed the laws, an
have they not been just as liberal an
Just as progressive in their policy
We doubt if It ever occurred to an
citizen before that the public scho<
system in this day of advancement wn
a political issue. Suppose the Charles
ton Gazette and its echo, the Registci
give t lie school and other education?
statistics, and the record of illiteracy
of all the states that have been con
trolled by the Republican party for tli
past two decades, and compare tliei
with similar figures from states on th
other side.
Another absurdity which the Gazett
declares, and the Register approves, I
that "Republican leaders, as he whor
that party has jusf recently sent to tli
senate, proposed to secede from tli
state if the school taxes were to be dis
tributed among the counties in propot
tion of the number of their children.
Nonsense. A Republican governor ha
recently recommended the distributio
of the irreducible school fund for tli
betterment of the school system for tli
present and rising generation, and t
repeal the law requiring it to accumu
late untouched into millions for the her
eilt of generations unborn, and it meet
with favor from members of the legh
biture, regardless of party. The refei
once to Mr. Scott, exposes the animil
of the Gazette's article and the Regis
tor's approval, and is unworthy of fu:
ther notice.
Applauding an Knciuy.
Our contemporary, the Ileglstc:
which loses no opportunity to attemr
to prejudice lis readers against its ow
country, and to Jiold up its country'
enemies to pity and sympathy, labor
cuch day to show that the treacherous
selfish Agulnaldo is a patriot and
martyr. This Individual, having bee
guilty of a breach of faith, and misle
his Innocent followers into a rebellio
against the military authority of th
United States, which, by all the rule
of nations and war, was In possesslo
of the territory pending the ratlflcatio
of a treaty by two governments, an
the establishment of a free governmer
which could not come until the prope
legislation could be enacted, Is allege
by the Register to be a very inuc
abused man. The Register does not sa
this, but it Incorporates, without com
merit, in its article a description c
Agulnnldo made by a writer In the Rn
viow of Iteviews, calculated to raise 1
the estimation of Americans the Fill
j^'no commander, who violated ever
piedge of faith and deliberately an
basely throw hla comparatively poorl
oqnipped forces Into the face of a aplen
dldly organized army and navy.
The extract from the Review of Re
view!', the effect of which l.s Intended t
hi: what we have said, without a doub
might have clone Agulnaldo at one llm
full Justice, an the Americana did hli
when deceived by his false pretension;
hut our neighbor does not Intimate, a
an honest paper might, t hit I the artlel
In the Review woh written and pulj
llHhcd before tl:o oventa of last wee
occurred. The writer, whoever he was,
t would scarcely now color so beautifully
the character Of the Fillpplno leader,
nor give him such conservative treatment.
No great man would be guilty
of the act that he committed; no
shrewd or discreet leader would betray
his own people. No "far-sighted, brave,
r* self-controlled, honest, moral" leader
would lead his men to slaughter by an
5f act of war and attempt a slaughter of
the Innocent inhabitants of Manila,
0 with the certainty of a disastrous result
0 to the innocents.
0 The Review of Reviews writer doubt0
less never dreamed that Agulnaldo was
10 made of such material. An American
journal, which falls to uphold the obli0
gations of its own government, no matv
ter how much It may differ from It as to
policy, strengthens not Its cause by
lauding, indirectly even, the enemy of
E this country.
,0 m
i. Aguinaldo's Plea.
)r The fact that a plea Is to be made by
ly Agulnaldo's agents to European powers
to Interfere In the behalf of the F11I13
plnos against the United States, is a
u ridiculous proposition to say the least.
10 There Is not a European or any other
sort of power that would raise a hand
5. In such a matter and under such clr>t
cumstances, for several reasons. A
__ very Important one Is that there Is no
~ foreign power (hat has any desire to
make war on the United States. An1.
other is that such a move would plunge
Europe into a hopeless embroilment. A
= powerful reason is that the fear of England
would be an important factor.
_ Yet another is that no power would
, care to run up against a situation
where a state of war between two rec=
ognlzed powers is coming to a peace
__ agreement or treaty, which has been
~~ ratified by only one of the parties, and
the policy of the victorious-power ton
ward the conquered territory has not
0 yet been adopted, and cannot lie until
lt ratification by 'both sides Is consume
muted.* A policy which is to be shaped
e by the legislative body of the country.
le into whose possession the Philippines
ie have come pending this decision, cannot
lt be interfered with unless that policy
fr should be extremely offensive to foreign
countries.
5? It isn't the first time that the Filipinos
e have petitioned in a similar manner,
11 - even, when professing friendship to the
United States and failed. A set up
^ government of the Agulnaldo sort has
y no claim for recognition by any country
y until it establishes itself, nor has any
" government any knowledge other than
that by virtue of a treaty and a peace
protocol the United States has control
of the territory, and no civilized gov't
ornment will recognize Mr. Agulnaldo
d under such circumstances. His record
" for treachery and bnd faith marks him
for suspicion in.jj.ll the seats of government.
,r _ o . ?
The existing intense cold wave has
r. given rise to a great deal of discussion
e among old citizens as to the date of
i- previous excessive frigid temperature,
it and when the reminiscences go back of
y ofllcial records, the arguments narrow
i- down to the particular hour in which
s the record was broken. There 'is some
y satisfaction In the knowledge that on
such a day the lowest temperature of
a record was reached?that is, that it was
n the coldest day on record. That day
it goes on record and can be easily refere
red to, but, as a contemporary says, it
:s is a snare and a delusion to say that
is "this was the coldest thirteen minutes
d past 7 ever known on the 10th of Februd
ary in a year that wasn't a leap year."
y The fact that the Cuban troops re
^ iusea to uikc pari 111 tne parade at tiie
s funeral of their late leader, General
Garcia, simply because they had a litr
tie dispute with the American commander,
General Brooke, does not reHect
credit upon the Cuban fighting
patriots. A failure to pay tribute to a
leader who led them against Spanish
oppress/on for years, merely because of
a spite against one of the great soldiers
who came to his aid and theirs, is not
at all soldierly conduct. Perhaps the
' Cuban troops will learn some of the
courtesies and th?* obligations of clvili- '
zatlon, when they become infused with
'.e
a little more Americanism,
e
A slight moderation in the tempera- '
~ ture was welcomed yesterday, but it
was hardly enough to excite considcra3
ble cheerfulness. There has been con- 1
R siderable suffering in this section of the '
country as well as in other portions, !
0 and there will be joy when there Is a ;
0 decided break for the better, but which,
it is hoped, will not be too sudden, but
gradual enough to avert anxiety. ;

WHY GLASS HOUSES HOLD HEAT
The Scientific Explanation of Something-we
see Evcrj* l)ny.
It is very curious, said the old professor
of physics, to sec how many market
gardeners there are who raise things
under glass, .making money out of the
process, and yet do not know why their
heating frames and their hot houses remain
hot inside.
Now, as a matter of fact, the heat
mechanism of a hot house depends on a
well-known proposition in physics. I
suppose you are acquainted with the
fact that the energy from the sun
travels in the form of little waves.
The energy does not come down to us
In straight lines; It comes, as it were, in
a zigzag manner, dancing from side to
side us it comes along. If these waves
are very short, light is the result; if
they are a trifle longer, they take the
form of heat.
If the light waves strike anything on
the way down, they are very apt to be
made longer, or rather they are apt to
be turned into heat. Now, the waves
which form light are so short that they
will readily pass through glass, but the
waves which form heat are so long that
they will not pass through.
From this, therefore, you may see why
a hot house remains hot. The energy
from the sun passes into the house
through the glass roof in the form of
light. Then it strikes the objects in the
house and is turned to heat.
But this heat cannot pass through the
glass. The heat waves are too long.
So the light keeps coming in and the
heat keeps accumulating, and soon the
hot houses bccome very warm, indeed.
even on the coldest days in winter.
Of course, our dwelling houses are
heated by the sun in the same way.
The light comes in through the windows,
but the heat cannot pass out.?

"Why Senator Hawley Sighed.
Washington Post: Upon the huge
weather map which stands in the senate
lobby Is a new name. It had previously
shown all the large cities of the
country?San Francisco. Omaha, St.
Louis, Washington. New York, Boston,
and a score or more of other equally
well-known places. The addition to
this list Is a word of six letters, as follows:
ELKINS.
Now, Elklns is a charming town in
the heart of the West Virginia mountains,
but its cldef reason for existence
Is the fact that It Is the home of Senator
Elklns, ex-Senator Davis, and Richard
C. Kerens, of Missouri, all of whom
have palatial residences there. It
has been established there, and every
morning Senator Elkins has the pleasure
of glancing at the map and seeing
just how the weather it at his mountain
homo. Yesterday, at 8 o'clock in the
morning, Elkins was being visited by a
snowstorm, and the thermometer was 8
degrees below zero.
Yesterday Senator Hawley. of Connecticut,
came along and looked over
the map to see the weather in his state.
Curiously enough, there was not a station
named between New York and ;
Boston. The entire state of Connecticut
was a blank. It might have been
raining pitchforks In Hartford, New
Haven, or Xew London and nobody
would have been any the wiser.
Senator Hawley looked real hard at
the word Elkins and sighed.
Longfellow's Htyst Famous Lines.
Longfellow's poems which most touch
the heart, are about children, and nothing
can be more intenselypathetic than
these'llnes:
"There Is no fireside, liowso'er defended,
But has ono vacant chair."
The vacant chair Is always fraught
with saddest memories?sometimes with
bitterest regret, because of a young life
lost that might perhaps have been
saved. Is there not a deep lesson in 1
this for parents? Children are frail
barks upon Life's stormy sea. They are
often delicate and sicken easily. They i
should be cured at or.ee, for neglect
may be forever fatal. Parents who have
weak, nervous and sickly children
should consult the highest authority in i
children's compl.Unts. a physician who
has made a specialty of treating the
chronic, nervous and lingering corn
plaints of children, like Dr. Or (/no. of ]
?,7> West Fourteenth Street. Xew York
City, who from treating ro many of (
such diseases knows Just what is the I
matter and precisely what to do lo of- 1
feet a cure. You can take your chll- i
dren to Dr. Greene's yo/llce and have
consultation and advice, absolutely free
r?f charge, or write to the doctor about
the child's casn and lie will give you the
advice and counsel you noed by letter,
without charge or fee. Dr. Greene's '
Xorvura, the most famous nerve and |
blood remedy In the world, has alone
Dooli tlii- moans or curing largo num- <
bora of children. 1-lut this grand rem- (
L'dv is only one of the many wonderful J
restorative rind health-giving mod- ,
Iclnes Dr. Greene has dlscovered
and prepared for various 1
complaints. Dr. Greene uses no pois- 1
Dnous drugs in his treatment of the 1
sick, but all Ids marvelous curative 1
remedies arc purely vegetable and perfectly
harmless. K you have a sick
child, take our advice and consult Dr. 1
Greene about it at once. If you can- .
not call, write to the doctor fully and .
freely and you can have his skilled adrice
and counsel without cost.
