Filipinos Anxious lor Peace.
Dispatches this morning from Manila
and London are somewhat conflicting,
but both tend to indicate that the insurgent
army in tho Phil Inn! l? In n
badly disorganized condition, and that
the people of the* Islands are anxious
for peace under American protection. A
significant statement in a Manila dispatch
is to the effect that General Otis
agreed with the spokesman of the Filipino
peace envoys that the people of thu
islands want peace, and added that requests
for protection are pouring in
upon him from all parts of the country.
The hitch in the negotiations, according
to General Luna's chief of staff, is
due to the fact that Aguinaldo is without
power to surrender the army without
the consent of the so-called Congress.
This statement is confirmed by
the minister of foreign affairs (secretary*
of state) in Aguinaldo's cabinet in
a letter to General Otis. Both men assure
the American commander that the
congress will vote for peace because the
people want it. The envoys are to have
another conference with General Otis
The London dispatch giving the statement
of the representatives of the Filipino
junta that Aguinaldo charges that
the leaders who are negotiating for
peace are men anxious for peace in the
hopes of getting offices under a new
government, may be taken with a large
amount of doubt, in view of the fact
Bource have been disproven by subsequent
developments and by official dispatches.
American diplomacy and American
arms are more powerful than the Junta
in Hong Kong and Paris, or than
Aguinuldo himself. Otis has matters
so well In hand there is not likely to be
any cessation of operations that will
give the remnant of the Insurgent army
Secretary Long Nails Falsehoods.
Secretary of the Navy Long, in his
address to the Essex Club of Boston,
Monday night, took occasion to scathingly
rebuke those who are misrepresenting
the administration and the
army with stories of cruelties to the
Filipinos. The secretary, vrho is,in
close touch with tho situation, and with
all that Is done in the Philippines, denounced
the statement that "the treatment
of the Cubans by Spain, and the
Armenians by the Turks, is not to be
compared with the American course toward
the Filipinos In wanton cruelty,"
as an "unutterably mean, unwarranted
and contemptible assertion." He made
this forcible remark, and others of a
like nature. because those who have indulged
In such Insinuations have coupled
with them the charge that these
alleged cruelties are not incident# of
the war. but the deliberate action of the
administration at Washington.
The secretary, in denouncing this contemptible
falsehood, declared emphatically
that the wires have l>een kept
busy with orders for conciliation and
kind treatment anil every inducement to
secure peace; moreover, that wounded
prisoners have been cared for In the
American hospitals, and that the Filipino
prisoners have been released to
distribute among their people the
Schurman proclnmation promising amnesty
and a free government to the Filipinos.
No women and children have
been shot by American troops. The
slander on tho administration is cruelly
unjust and unworthy to come from
Secretary Long delivered a Just rebuke
to those who are ready to believe
these libels on our army, nnd who lack
the appreciation of the responsibilities
of the President and his administration.
The public well knows that every effort
Is being made to secure an adjustment
with the natives to await congressional
action, which Ss to determine the disposition
of the Islands. This point seems
to be lost sight of by the captloua critics
of the present policy.

Ono of the New York yellow journals
that Ii.'ih brion barred from admission
to public libraries ami rending rooms
In colleges nnd other public Instlt'utlon::,
on account of Its extremely sensational
character and the Impure quality
of Us contents, especially on the best
day of the week, contains an editorial
calling'on the authorities to stamp out
Immoral theatres. The purpose of the
article Is good, ami th<- advice Is excellent.
Hut the paper's own standing In
'noclety Is ?uch that we doubt whether
iiH influence on this line will have much
weight. If It can obtain the support of
the reputable press in New York the atmosphere
of the theatres complained
about, may be purified, or the doors
may be closed altogether.
The paper referred to claims that It Is
rend by aomewhere near a million people
every day in the year. The thea
tres, those the paper describes as "the
, more pretentious houses, that are ransacking
Europe for suggestive plays,"
too suggestive for reputable people to
witness, are probably not patronized
? by that many people each evening.
They are great evils just the same, and
deserve to be wiped out. It is a pity,
however, that a few yellow Journals
that go by the millions Into the# homes
of the people every Sunday do not take
some of the medicine they prescribe for
> the theatres and apply It to the art de>
partments that furnish the villainous,
> not to say demoralizing, pictures that
J are unfit to be seen In good society on
. any day of the week, and to certain
i contributors whose productions are
> anythng but appeals to refined literary
"While the crusade against the Immoral
plays Is going on, a little atten'
Hon to elevating the tone of the class
> of Journals we refer to might add to the
" general' elevation of public morals.
New York Is not the only city where
these evils exist, but It leads by several
i paces all other cities In this country.
I'arkersburKer Sees a Vision.
, The Parkersburg correspondent of the
Register Informs the readers of that
paper of the minute details of an al
leged conference In this city In which
a "slate" for next year's campaign.
About the only thing the Parkersburg
fabricator succeeded In doing was to
make himself ridiculous by exposing
his own ignoranca In an attempt to fnrnlsh
the Register with a manufactured
dispatch based mainly on his lmaglna(
tion. Of course, Ihe purpose of the con.
coction is to circulate It over the state.
The small-fry Democratic organs will
publish it and make themselves as ridiculous
as possible by endorsing it for
When the Intelligent readers note that
Messrs. Elklns and Scott and White,
and a number of other Republicans, met
in Wheeling, either in person or by
proxy, and laid down a plan by which
certain gentlemen were to be named
for certain state offices and certain
others were to be retired to private life,'
they will wonder why nobody in Wheeling
ever heard about the startling conspiracy,
and that the only person on
earth who dreamed about it was the
, Democratic Parkersburg correspondent
of,the Wheeling Democratic organ, and
; that he observed all the details of the
proceedings with his own eyes at a distance
of 100 miles.
According to this correspondent Senator
Scott, Judge Miller, Judge Blizzard,
Collector A. 13. White, and State Senai
tor Woodyard met in a darksome chamber
in this city and resolved, Senator
Scott and Collector White representing
not themselves, but Senator Elklns,
that Mr. Elklns is to succeed himself?
, not at all an Improbable event, that Mr.
White is to have the collectorship again
or a foreign mission, the Parkersburg

good choice if such a thing had happened;
Mr. Dawson is to be secretary of
state; General Curtln isn't in it for governor,
Mr. Davis, of Grafton. Is to be
auditor; numerous other people are to
be this, that and the other thing, and
some are to be tucked away on shelves.
That's the story, and the Intelligencer
repeats it because the Register did,
and, like the Register, knows that the
Parkersburg correspondent who claims
to be the only person oh earth placed In
hypnotic communication with the deliberations
of the "conferees," Is not at

on its completion next fall, was a
revelation to the Wheeling public and
to tho outside friends of the historic

style of the exterior is In keeping with
the general progress and advancement
of the city In the matter of public
buildings, and will be a source of pride
to Wheeling. It will be the handsomest
and largest hotel in West Virginia, and
Its internal improvements will be In
harmony with those of the exterior.

The United States man-of-war Detroit
will not have much of a Job on Its
hands in bringing the Nicaraguan officials
to a proper conception of what the
United States government means when
It demands a proper respect, for American
interests at Blueficlds. It would require
a stronger power than Nicaragua
to maintain the policy of requiring the
American merchants to pay the expense,
in the form of double duties, of
the rebellion which occurred In that
country. It Is an Incident that can be
settled without bloodshed, , though a
warship will be the Important factor.
The climax of trust formations comes
with the organization of a combine of
the peanut Industry of the country, with
a capital of $5,000,000. The peanut consumers
and the man with the roasting
apparatus on the street corner need not
apprehend that the demand will cease
by reason of the trust control of the
supply. The peanut Is one of the institutions
that the public will not do
without at any price.
