Political Ingratitude.
There is a peculiar case cf ingratitude
tiown in Kanawha county?in fact, there
are two of them, Burdett and Chilton.
The Intelligencer does not like to open
up old sores after the wounds have been
cauterized. The exploitation of the
personal affairs of candidates on either
ticket accomplishes very little in the
way of vote-making, and it is proper
that It should not. The faults of candidates
arc known befor^they are nominated,
and the remedy is before the
conventions of the srverttl parties, and
not so much with the people. However
painful it is, the fact Is relevant to tho
issues at stake, and thai! is, Samuel C.
Burdett Is one of the most ungrateful
Individuals known in the political history
of the state. The Republican party
suffered for his sins, not of omission,
but commission. "How sharper
than a serpent's tootli'K Is to have a
thankless child." Mrl"tturdi>tt exemplifies
Shakespeare's trite saying in a
startling manner. IC would have been
better for Mr. Burdett if he had any

Our Trade With China.
The lmi)ortnnce of our amicable relations
with the Chinese empire Is clearly
shown In reports that havejust reached
the treasury bureau of statistics. These
are official reports of the (Chinese government,
and they indicate that the imports
Into China from;-,the United
States In that year amounted to 22,288,

In 1807, 11,029,853 III lbOG and 5,093,182
thiols In 1895. Thus In th'c'four years
j from 1895 to 1899 the Import's/Into China
from the United,States have-more than
I quadrupled. During! the''same 'period
j the Imports Into China from Great Britain
increased from 23,950,060 halkwan
taels In 1895 to 40,161.115 In 1839. and
fronj the continent of Europe (Russia
excghlnd). they Increased _ from 7,552,099
I haiKwan taels In 1895 _ to. 10,172,395 in
1899. Thns, while the Imports from
Great Britain show an Increase of 18
I per cent from 1805 to 1899,"a;ul' those
from Europe show an Increase of 35 per
cent, those from the United States show
| an increase of 33 per cent. /Taking the
j Imports from all parts of'tljp world, the

| Reporting upon the foreign trade of
Shanghai, the commissioner, of customs
I of that port says: "The Import trade in
piece goods during the year showed
I great vitality. Almost .every Item of
Importance shows Improvement, the
most remarkable being found In white
| shirtings, sheetings of all descriptions,
chintzes and twills, handkerchiefs, tow.
els and cotton llannel. Notwithstanding
the continued Increase In the consumption
of American domestics, English
[ goods have managed to slio'w satisfactory
progress. There are SEEDral makes,
notably prints and dyed fancy fabrics,
which are not interfered with by American
competition as yet#; Jnd although
fhov miis^ hi? Innkrwl 11 nrm.iviorr* no
urles than as actual necessities, the
I trade In them Is growing'fn Importance
and value." "?'''s
The commissioner of customs at Canton
reports as follows: ".The value o!
i our foreign Imports exceeded that for
1S9S by nearly 2,000,000 tattle, being 13.S61,99o
hahvkan taels. {With the exception
of cotton yarn, nearly all the
staple articles, such ad! 'Manchester
goods, kerosene oil, ?ind American Hour
advanced considerably."-'
Commenting upon the ynpwth In the
Import trade at Tien Tsinrtvlilch showed
a gain of 6,700,000 tael?|C$V2r 1S9S, the'
commissioner at that poixjt says': "The
conspicuous gains are In white shirtings,
and more especially" In American
sheetings; this last article* has gained
90,000 pieces over the rccjord of 1S9S.
American drills have declined 17 .per
cent below the Import quantity of 1S9S,
although as regards value they show a
gain or t> per cent. American Kerosene
oil* has fallen off greatly, the imports
(1.SCS.000 gallons) being 'ttoly half tha*.
of 1898. Machinery, requisites,
railway materials, munitions of war anil
government stores all show an Increase
over the figures for 1S97 and 1S9S."
Never Better Put.
Among the many humorous things
that Bryan got off at the reception
Tammany Hull tendered, him at Madison
Square Garden was the repetition
of the Joke he sprung out west about
the Republican party establishing forts
in every large city to ovcr&bme the people
and more effcctually-^stabllsh Imperialism.
In striving to array class
against class, Mr. Bryan, jidept though
he la In demagogy, is not at all artistic
In his profession when he makes such
outlandish assertions. "'While admitting
that In some things the Apostle of
Calamity stands for the provocation of
social tumult, 'the New York Times
laughs at the declaration he made In
New York City Tuesday night. It
"If he were a more skillful demagogue
his candidacy would constitute a public
"For proof of this wo have but to attend
to one of his utterances at Madison
Square Garden. He told his audience
that he and his party were not the
enemies of honest wealth. Yet a little
further on, In discussing his favorlti>
tnnlf nf mllltoHcrm tin ?r\i?i ...v... i?
his Judgment the Republicans had treated
an army of 100,000 men:
I believe that one of the reasons that
they want a large army Is to build a
fort In this city and use the army to
suppress by force that discontent that
ought to be cured by legislation.
"Those would be dangerous and Inflammatory
words spoken by a man of
great popular reputation and Influence
to an audience that had' confidence. In
his wisdom and sincerity.
"If the crowd had been Interested In
Imperialism it wouhl have gladly and
attentively listened to Mr. " Shepard,
who Is a very much abler man than Mr.
Bryan, Infinitely better qualilled than
he la to discuss Imperialism and really
illuminate the subJcct, and he has tha
additional advantage of perfect sincerity.
I5ut the crowd would not listen
to Mr. Shepard, and refused to let him
1 deliver his speuch. It wan crazy to hunt
Bryan. Nevertheless, when he told
1 them It wan the purpose of the Itepub'
llcari party to establish a garrison In

The Passing of Wilson.
The New York Times, In an appreciative
commentary on the political cur
re? of. the late William Lyne Wilson,
draws a fine distinction between the
Democracy of the r uthor of the low. tariff
bill that nearly ruined the country,
and that of William Jennings Bryan.
The Intelligencer honors the memory
of Mr. Wilson's rcspectablo Democracy,
hl3 correct private life and all the attractions
of his charming perspnallty,
but It cannot agree with the Times In
hailing the resurrection of the WilsonGorman
free trade Democracy to stand
. In the place of the anarchistic tendencies
of the present Bryanlte party.
There must be something- better rise
from the ruins of Democracy this year
than the free^trade policy of the Cleveland
Democrats. It won't do. .It has
been tried and found fearfully wanting
when weighed In the balances of experience.
In concluding Its panegyric on the
dead Democratic statesman, the Times
"It Is to be hoped and to be believed
that the time,may como again when a
Wilson, and not a Bryan, will be the
representative of the reclaimed Democratic
party. It Is of conscquencc to
every American citizen, of whichever
party that the opposition to it may be
strong and respectable, and thht party
division shall not be made unless something
plausible shall be pleadable on
each side. But In the meantime . the
death of the presiding officer of the
Democratic convention of 181)2 and
chairman of ways and means In the
Flfty-thlrd Congress strongly emphasizes
the present degradation of the
Democratic party."
In one sense the concluding sentence
Is true, but how sadly was Mr. Wilson's
career marred In the closing hours
of his life by writing a letter to the
chairman of a Democratic meeting in
his native town, at which Bryan spoke, i
endorsing the attitude of the political I
heresies of the sham Democrat who Is J
said to bo running for the presidency. ^
Mr. Wilson was all right on the money >
question, but It appears that even the c
sight of the Promised Land, whose delights
we are sure he Is enjoying, failed
to show him the mistake of his life,
his free trade bill which caused the '
days of "horror, hungry and misery," 1
Mr. Gompers has so eloquently pic- 1
tured. As a respectable Dimocrat the \
Intelligencer joins the Times In mourn- j
Ing Mr. Wilson's death, but It cannot <
agree wun its resurrection theories. J
Here are some extracts from Governor j
Roosevelt's address at Cleveland, do- \
llvered Wednesday evening, just before (
his departure for West Virginia: "All of j
Bryan's oratory on the trust question Is {
not worth an ounce of Republican per- j
formance." True enough. Republican i
"performance" on the trust question has t
' invariably been In the direction of glv-- l
ing the trusts increased power and a ]
wider scope. Mr. Bryan's oratory has i
not been in that direction.?Register. i
Mr. Bryan's oratory doesn't amount <
to a picayune.'He Is a squirmer. Re- 1
publican performance, is shown by the (
record of the party in the last session
of Congress, when on June 1, 1900, 14S
Republicans voted for a constitutional
amendment regulating trusts, end'130 c
Democrats voted against It. the very a
proposition, Bryan advocated some 1
months before. Pass the salt, please. j
Col. McGraw'a organ In Charleston is
lighting a peculiar battle. It is defending
and supporting th^ "gnr.g" that
was fornlnst him in 18D3, when he aspired
to political hoqors. McGraw's
astounding ambition of that time, was
the United States senate. In 1698 the
Gazette referred to one of McGraw's
present lieutenants in Kanawha county
In the following pleasant manner: "The
Republicans know that a quarter of a
century of Democratic rule in West t
Virginia has left but one black mark, 1
and that is Chilton." r
It was fairly creditable. That is the
best that can be said of It. The people
turned out In crowds, as they always do "!
to spectnculurdemonstrntlons In "Wheel- .
lng, but th?; local Republicans didn't
turn out In the parading column to any 1
great extent.?Register. J
That Is tolerably fair, for the Regis- ?
tcr. The main object lerson of the ,
Roosevelt demonstration, however, <
seems to have escaped our envious con- *
temporary, and that was the crowd on !
the streets, which was almost unanl- ,
mous for McKinley and Roosevelt. 1
A Pittsburgh paper, which gave a '
magnificent account of the Roosevelt (
demonstration In this city, sadly jarred I
Its readers yesterday by making Gov- 1
crnor Atkinson deliver the Introductory
addiess. It was possibly n misprint
for "next Governor White."
There Is a trust In this country that
is bound to May?the trust of the
American people In the Republican party.
The Democratic party cannot be
Isn't It peculiar that the Hon. David
Dennett II1I1 was not present at Tammany's
reception to Bryan at Madison
Square Garden?
Wn trust the Register has sulllciently
recovered from Its Roosevelt nightmare |
to lx* lucid before the sixth day of No- (
, vember.
I It wasn't such a bad demonstration,
after all, in spite of the crowds on the ,
! street. # (

Tiie Times knows of one cm- ^
lnent gold Democrat, recently 1
Bryan I zed, who, In reply to remonstrances,
said: "Oh, well, he is

the Bryanised gold Democrats as a j
But their numbers are not large. The ! *
assertion of the Bryan managers that ;
they have won the gold Democratic !

gold Democrats who have a serious

Love to n woman Is a thrill; to a man
it is a mroD.
By the time a man haa learned to
know women, he is able to make a guess
at himself.
Every woman over thirty knows a lot
of weather sl?ns:that she gets from the
way a cat acts.
A woman divides all the men in the
1 world into two classes; those she knows
she can flirt uHth and those she isn't
sure about yet.
A woman can do more with a hairpin
and the. handle of an old tooth-brush
than a man can with a tool chest and
three old clocks.
When a woman is out calling on people
that she thinks are fashionable, it
always makes her mad to hear her husband
talk about "veal pot-pie."?New
