President's Letter ol Acceptance.
President McKinley'a letter of acceptance,
which appears- in this morning's
Issue of the Intelligencer, Is a strong
and forceful document, covering as It
does all the Issues and questions that
have arisen In the campaign. The
President starts out with a review of
the results of the election of 1896, and
warns the country that the friends of
bimetallism have not been vanquished;
they have simply been overcome. That
Is the free silver intentions of Mr. Bryan
are again rampant. This Is declared
In fl nrrvmtoo *1?? hno mniln ? *
can voters that the gold standard "will
not be maintained in this country
longer than I (Bryan) am able to got
rid "of It." The President then recites
the accomplishments of the Republican
party, its clear financial record and the
prosperity that has come to the industrial
and agricultural classes through
the' establishment of the protective
tariff.
President McKlnley effectually disposes
of the reckless assertions of the
Democracy with regard to the existence
of a secret alliance between this country
and England and the claim made
by Bryan and his followers that the
United 8tates has been Indifferent to
the plight of our sister South Afrlcnn
republics. While maintaining Its well
known traditional policy of neutrality
this government, the President declares,
,11/4 i--..'. : *
nuv iicmiuic, iivvTuvcr, wnen requested
by the governments at war
with Great Britain to exercise Itn good
offices for n cessation of hostilities. "It
Is to be observed," he says, ."that while
thai South African republics made a like
request of other powers, the UNITED
STATES IS THE ONLY ONE WHICH
COMPLIED/'
He denounces trusts?that Is thos._*
combinations of capital which control
the market In commodities necessary to
the general tine of the people, by suppressing
natural and ordinary competition,
thus enhancing prices. These
combinations, he says, are obnoxious to
the commonJa*wmd the public welfare,
and they obouid bt> nvule the subject of
prohibitory on penal legislation.
Thu PxaaMcnt XcJJaionho good work
of the'"government In Cuba and the approaching
"fulfillment. of our sacred .
guarantees, to th-s people of that Island,
and also the great progress : made by
the people of Porto Rico undsr the administration
of the American govern
rnent. * . j
The Philippine question is mpst ex-,
haustively treated from the beginning
of the war with Spain down to the present
time, and the work of the-several
commissions to the islands thoroughly
reviewed. In the correspondence of the
last named.conjmlssion the President
establishes Ihtf fact that the work of the
pacification of the island and the establishment
of a stable government'1:1 pro
pressing rapidly. Al?o that thera was
no alliance between our soldiers and th?
insurgents, and further that no prom-1
ise of Independence was mads .to. them.
"There has been no time since the destruction
of the enemy's lleet," says the
President, "when we could or should
have left the Philippine archipelago.
After the treaty of peace .was ratified
no power but Congress could surrender
our sovereignty or allenato a .foot of
the territory thus acquired. The Congress
has not seen fit to do the- one or
the other, and the President had no authority
to do either, if he had been no
Inclined, which he was not. So long a*
the sovereignty remains In us it Is the
duty of the executive, whoever he may
be, to uphold that sovereignty and If it
be attacked to suppress its assailants.
??uum uur political adversaries uo
leas?"
It has bean asserted, and Mr. Bryau
makes the strong contention that there
would have been no fighting In the Philippines
If Congress had declared Its
purpose to give Independence to the
Tagal Insurgents. Hut the Insurgents
did not wait for the action of Congress.
They assumed the offensive some days
before the treaty of peace was ratified,
opening lire upon our army. "Their
unprovoked assault upon our soldiers,"
says the President, "at a time when the
senate was deliberating upon the treaty
shows that no action on our part except
surrender and abandonment would
have prevented the fighting, and leaves
no doubt in any fair mind of where the
responsibility rests for the shedding of
American blood."
"The American question/' concludes
the President, "Is between duty- and
desertion?the American verdict will be
for duty and against desertion, for the
republic against both anarchy and Imperialism.".
Bryan and tlie Tariff.
Senator Burrows in his magnificent
speech at the Opera House, Saturday
night, did well in culling attention to
the things that were back of Bryan,
who is masquerading behind the mask
of his so-called paramount Issue of Imperialism.
Mr. Burrows told his audienoe
that one of the greatest dunger^ of
Bryanism was free trade, which wpuUJ
surely be inaugurated were he to bo'
elected.
The Washington Star awake to this
danger to the industries of the country,
says that "part of the cry against imperialism
is based upon the assertion
that the people arc groaning under taxation
levied to support the new policy.
Call home the troops from Cuba and the
Philippines and not another dollar of
the war taxes will be necessary, the
Bryanltes will tell you, If antl-imperlalism
wins at the polls, therefore, thfere
will accompany the triumph tacit Instructions
to the new Congress to reduce
the revenues for the support of the
government.
The Republicans agrte that the war
taxes should be reduccd, and they
would have brought in a bill for that
purpose at the recent session of Congress
had there been time. But if the
Democracy Is returned to power, and
Mr. Bryan, as he promises, calls an extra
session of Congress, the question
will probably be left to the new Congress
to settle. Probably, too, In that
event the question will be enlarged, and
Instead of only lopping off the war
taxes the Democrats will go further and
revise the whole Dlngley law.
Mr. Bryan's influence In^uch circumstances
would all be In favor of a-deep
cut. He Is an extreme low tariff mar..
He was elected to Congress on that
Issue, was made a member of the ways
and means committee because of his
tariff views, and he assisted in the preparation
of the famous Wilson bill.
'That bill, as it left, the hands of Mr.
Bryan and his friends of the hoim, was
condemned by Mr. Gorman and his
friends of the senate as a failure;" Reductions
had been so extreme that, as
Mr. Gorman Insisted, the bill would
cause a heavy dcliclt. Whereupon the
Maryland leader and his friends proceeded
to reconstruct the measure and
to snico the schedules llbomllv with
protection. The general result was a
botch, and the country greatly suffered.
But Mr. Bryan's views on the.tariff
question underwent no change. He loft
Congress, as he entered It, a free trader,
and, although his sliver views have
since occupied so much of public attention,
whenever he has had occasion to
refer to the tariff he has made It plain
that lie still regards protection as a
very great evil. And If he reaches the
white house, even on the Issue of Imperialism,
he may be expected to use
the Inlluunce of his ofllce as much-In
favor of free trade as of free, sliver.
And, as already stated. In the matter of
reducing the war taxes, that question
will come pat to hand."
Goneral Business Situation.
In speaking of the general business
situation of the country, Mr. Henry
Clews, In his weekly circular comments
on the assured favorable home.conditions.
A good harvest Is practically assured,
and farmers are making good
pro (Us; better in fact On (he average
than for many years. This Is true of
coUon as well as of wheat, com and
many other agricultural products. A
striking fact Ih that while there, arc
fewer "booms" in progress than a.year
ago, and some lines of business arc
making very moderate profits compared
with 1899, yet prosperity Ih more evenly
distributed and all clasps arc reccjvlhg
a more equitable shar?! than tbfcn. It
Is many years since the country haa
witnessed no little discontent; thin Is
demonstrated by the apathy regarding
the anti-trust Issue, which In times of
depression would prove an Inexh/iustlble
source of cumpalgn rhetoric. Today
It Is almost a lost latum; much to
the satisfaction of the large holders of
the IndUHtrials.
(Jood harvests means a good demand,
for all sortH of mwchandlac -this Com
tng fall and winter; this In turn means i
a good west bound traffic for the rail- ]
roads and continued employment for ,
our mills and furnaces. Now that Iron i
products are comlrig down to more rea- 1
sonable figures, enterprises which have j
been checked by high prices are being j
pushed forward, confidence Is again rc- <
ylvlng, and, as the process of readjustment
to the new level becomes more
complete, the country Is girding together
for'n fresh step forward. Happily
the bid hindrance to Industrial
growth, overproduction, Is a lessened
menace now that foreign markets are ;
becoming eager purchasers of American j
manufactures. i
"Wellington's Waywardness.
Mr. Bryan in his tour through this <
state undertook to defend the course of '
Senator Wellington, of Maryland, and
Innldontallv rnripfltod nn untfnthflll n/rn. 1
tentlon of that gentleman, who alleges
that his reason for quitting the Republican
party was that the President '
promised him he would give the Filipinos
independence if he would'vote to
ratify the treaty of peace. The asser- 1
tlon is so ridiculous that it is scarcely [
worth denial. The President has no j
power to.glVe Independence to the Fill- 'j
pinos or any other people under the 1
Jurisdiction of the United States government.
That power is vested solely
In Congress. But as Mr.. Wellington 1
has Iterated and reiterated the charge,
it is well enough to call attention to the
denial of Senator McComas, Mr. Wellington's
colleague in the senate. He
says that he was present at the Interview
with, the President that Wellington
speaks of and, that Mr. McKlnley
gave no assurances of the character
mentioned. Senator McComas' word Is
as good as Senator Wellngton's. Under
the circumstances we believe he Is the
more credible witness.
In this connection we are glad to note
that Mr. George Snyder, formerly of
this city, but now. residing in Cumberland,
who was one of Wellington's right
hand men In his aspirations to the sen- ,
aiorsnip, reiuBes 10 louow nia leauer ]
into the political oblivion that surely j
awaits him. A correspondent of the i
Baltimore American, in telegraphing to
his paper from Cumberland, says: j
"George Snyder, one of Wellington's ]
personal and political friends and a for- .
mer member of the Republican state j
central committee for this county, told t
me that, in becoming a Democrat, Wei- i
llngton would have to flock by himself
so far as his former followers were concerned,
as none would go with him." '
Mr. George Nominated. :
The Republicans on Saturday nomi- 1
nated Mr. Samuel George, sr., for the ,
state senate. It was done unanl- <
mously, Ohio county withdrawing her ,
objections upon an agreement being i
IrfSde between Mr. George and the glass 1
workers. The Ohio county conferees
were almost without exception union ]
working men, and as they are convinced i
that Mr. George Is all right, Republl- '
cans generally will not feel disposed to j
lend a willing ear to any calumnies
that may be sprung by a partisan
mi *. i
liicaa. jut: tuiivunuun was rvmarttable
for the fact that a Democrat, who ]
said that he was still a Democrat, In
the person of John C. Palmer, sr.,
leader at the Brooke county bar, ap- 1
peared before the convention publicly, J
and asserted his Intention to vote for
Sam George, who, he said, Is the best
man in Brooke county. Such a scene
would not. have been enacted had the 1
convention nominated a man whose
record Is not entirely above reproach.
Col. Alex. Campbell, of Bethany, who
Is likely to be the Democratic candidate
for senator, has announced that
he will do all he can for Mr. George's
election.
Democratic Legislative Ticket.
Pretty Rood legislative ticket, that.?
Register.
Well, it mlghiftiavo been worse, but
doesn't it strike Olio that the Register's
faint praise Is rather damning. Compared
with the ticket nominated by the
Republicans we see in the Democratic
legislative ticket chosen Saturday no ,
elements of strength that are not lodged i
In the Republican candidates. It is,
^politically considered, a very weak !
ticket. The gentlemen selected have .
the respect of their fellow citizens, and
"socially are very clever men. But there |
commendation must stop. The Repub- .
llcan ticket, now that we know the !
names of the Democratic candidates,
will be triumphantly clected. 1
Colonel Bryan In his public utterances,
In which ho cannot conceal his
Joy, Is a menace to the public good and (

night.

In the old days, these forms were abarevlated;
but the abbreviation conveyed
the Idea perfectly and said to
the reader, in effect: "He that wrqte

with mankind to-day is not a superfluity
of manners, but the painful
ibsence thereof.

The Fly on the Ceiling.
Boston Herald: Now, as to how flies

the feat by adhering to the celling
by means of little air pads attached to
their feet as many suppose. They walk
5n the celling and on glass by meana
jf capillary attraction, the operation
3f which is accentuated by means of
little drops of oil which exude from
hairs on their feet. Every time a lly
kvalks over a window pane it leaves behind
it a series of tracks. Invisible to
the naked eye. perhaps, but comj>osed of
little spots of this delicate oil.
One scientist counted the hairs on a
fly's feet and found an average of between
10,000 and 12,000, from each of
which flowed the minute specks of oil.
This oil is absolutely necessary to the
fly when walking on a vertical surface.
If a'pane of glass should become wet or
verv dusty It would be tmnosslble for
the 11 y to walk owr It, because In the
aneicn'so the Mowing of the oil between

of the capillary attraction; in the other
because of the clogging of the hairs
with the dust.
The effort of the fly to get rid of dust
can be noticed by any one. The Insect
will constantly stop ana clean out the
hnlrs on Its feet by wiping them off on
tho wings, which are provided with
wonderful little stiff hnlr brushes for
this purpose.

THE F.AILEOAjOS.
The September number book of the
Royal Blue, published by the passenger
department of the Baltimore & Ohio
railroad, completes the third volume of
this Interesting magazine. This number
contains an interesting history of the
famous stone viaduct at Relay, Md., the
oldest stone arch railway bridge In the
world: an interesting biography of John
Van Lear M'Mahon, who was the author
of the first charter of a railroad in
America (the Baltimore & Ohio), after
which is formed nearly every railroad
charter In the United States. An Interesting
account Is given as to the manner
in which Mr. M'Mahon secured the
passage of the bill in the Maryland legislature
for the confirmation of the famous
document. The biography is accompanied
by a photograph of the author
from an old oil painting.
In this number Mr. Arthur G. Lewis,
who conduets'"Stub Ends of Thought,"
which have been widely read and cop- I
led, has contributed a poem entitled I
"The Under Dog," which in many respects
is one of the best things which
has ever come from this versatile author
and Is worthy of Reproduction.
