Exciting debates have been going on for several days in the Congress of the United States concerning the annexation of some very fertile islands in the Pacific ocean. Therefore the jealously existing between other nations of Europe, especially England and France has made it impossible for any of those foreign powers to lay hold on the islands. The United States, however, occupies an independ ent position and can do as she pleases in the matter. There are thirteen Hawaiian or Sandwich islands, and eight of them are inhabited. The only one spoken of in this country is the largest?Hawaii. The whole ! business of the island centers at the capital. Honolulu, which is 2,100 miles and six days s^il from San Francisco. The Hawaiian islands are like a poet's dream in wealth and beauty. Edwin Arnold has call ed them a paradise, and nearly every othor writer who has been there has said the samo thing. They have made thousands of people rich and thousands of others happy. When Capt. Cook visited the islands in 1776 he estimated their population to bo -100,000. This is thought to be 100,000 or 200, 000 too many. With proper cul tivation. it is safe to say that the eight inhabited islands will sup port 4,000,000 poople. On a small scalo Honolulu could compete with imperial Rome her self for distinction in the matter of motley population. Kepresen tatives froir. every nation under the sun are gathered there. The native race of the Hawaii, which is certainly superior to any other native race of the Pacific islands is rapidly decreasing. Liquor and the low stale of social mor ality explain this decrease. AREA OP THE INHABITED IS LANDS. The total area of the inhabited islands of the Hawaiian group is 6,0-10 square miles. The area of Hawaii?the largest?is 4,210 j square miles. The. capital city has a population of 20.487. The natives of the islands are closely related in blood ti the Maoris of New Zealand. The islands are to a great extent mountainous and volcanic, but the soil, as has been intimated, is very fertile. Besides sugar and rice, the staple products, coffee,, hides, bananas and wool are raised and exported. The chief imports of Hawaii are groceries and provisions, cloth ing, grain, timber, machinery, hardware and cotton goods. One of our good friends in the country is not pleased with the Telegram because it fails to publish long communications from his "tcck o' wood," as he calls it. He says we publish all about the Clarksburg people, their visiting and da'ily move ments and then cut the country communications short. Our friend is right only in part. We do chop a lot out oi' our communi cations every week. We never cut out anything that we regard as important or that will interest our readers generally. It may interest a few little boys some where in one little nook of the county to see in the paper such an all-absorbing, conscience awakening announcement as, "Fred Hall lost a shepherd dog last Monday." -Sam Crow killed three rabbits on Thursday. Sam's one of our boss hunters." "One of Jerry Simpson's old ewes had her eye knocked out on Friday," "John C goes over to Little Hog Camp every few Sundays." Such items as these_are always, if possible, cut out of every com munication in which they appear. We have no use for them and it would be unprofessional in us to let them be inserted in our columns. The visiting of near neighbors?something that oc curs everywhere throughout the county on Sunday?is not proper news. Hut if the visitor is a stranger in the community or if some one goes on a distant visit the fact might then be mentioned. The "weather" is another topic that we observe is taken up by I correspondents simply 10 make the ''letter bigger" when |hey ought to know that the editor's ambition is to give the very great est amountoj news in the forest words. The weather is generally about the same all overthe coun ty. The Telegram aims to fcive a large amount of Clarksbuii; news and We think our country friends ought to understand why it does so. Our books will show that while we get 110.00 in sub scriptions from a small county office, the subscribers at the Clarksburg office will have paid 113 $500.00. We get several hun dred dollars each year for adver tising Clarksburg business men, and of course we expect nothing in this line from a small distant! village. The account ofan event that happens in Clarksburg will frequently be read by thousand people (for many papers are read by more than one person) who know the circumstances and the people connected with the evtnt A similar item, sent to us from some other point, will probably not be rend by a dozen people who know or care about the item. On the other hand the editor be lieves that subscribers all over ihe county will be interested, in Clarksburg news. It isthe county seat?the town where all the courts aro held, the place they come when they are sent to jail. But. friends, remember that along with the Clarksburg hap penings,we want the county news, in fact we are reaching after it and we want it bad. but we want straight news, not small gossip. The following may bo interest ing to the curious. We print It us it went the rounds of the press. The controversy is in regardito the number of the forbidden apples Adatn and Eve ate. Some say Eve 8 and Adam *2, a total of 10. Eve 8 and Adam 8 also, a total 16-?Boston Journal. ? jaj We think the above figure^ are entirely wrong. If Eve 8 and Adam 82, certainly the total will be 90. Scientific men, however, on the theory that the antedilu vians were a race ot giants and consequently great eaters, reason something like this: Eve 81 and Adam 82, total 163. -Gloucester Advertiser. : Wrong again. What could be clearer than if Eve 81 and Adam 312, the total was 893. - Lou-rev, e American. ' If Eve 811st and Adam 812, would not the total be 1023?-1. Boston Journal. I believe the following to be the true solution: Eve 814 Adam and Adam 8124 Eve, total 8938. ? Veritas. Still another calculation is as follows: If Eve 814 Adam, Adam 81242 oblige Eye, the total will be 82056. We think this, however, not to be a sufficient quantity, for though we admit that Eve 814 Adam, if Adam 80,81242 keopEve company, the total would be 8,082,056.?A'. Mail.

We presume that nearly all the boys who read the Telegram have heard of the ocean telegraph line and know that It Is to one of our great Americans, Cyrus Fipld, that the world is indebted for this grand system of com munication. Th6 story of Cyrus ar.d ihe cable was told in verse by .1. G. Saxe in Harper's Weekly of 1858 and we consider it worthy of a place here. HOW CTBOB LAID THE CABIX. Come, listen nil onto my song; Is is no silly (able! 'Tis all Bbont the mighty cord They osll the Atlantic cable. Bold Cyras Field, lie said, says he, "I have a pretty notioD. That I aan ran a telegraph Across tho Atlantic Poena." Then nil the people langhed and said The'd like to Hit- him do it; He might gut hulf-seus over, knt He never could go through it. To carry out his foolish plan Ho never would be able; He might as well go hang himself With his Atlantic cable. But Cyrus wns a valiant man, A fellow of decision ; And heeded not their mocking words, Their laughter and derision. Twice did his bravest efforts fail, And yet bis mind was stable; He waeu't the man to break his heart Because he broko his oable. "Once inoro, my gallant boys!" he cried; 3 "Thru timet I?you know tho fable" "(I'll make it thirty," mattered he, r"Bnt I will lay tho cable.") Onoe more they tried?hurrah Ihurrah! What means this great commotion? The Lord be praised! the cable's laid Ac. las tho Atlantic Oceau t Loud rings tho hells?for, flashing || tbroueh Six bandred leagues of water, " Old Mother England's beuison Salutes her oldest daughter. O'er all the land tha tidings speed, And soon in every nation They'll hear abbot the cable with : Profoundest admiration ! Naw long live James and long live Vie, And long live gallant Cyrus; Aad may his courage, faitli and zeal With emulation fire ns. Aud may we honor evermore The manly, bold and stable. And tell our sons, to make them brave How Cyrus laid the oable. The World's Fair Telegram. I COMMISSIONER S NOTICE. i Jambs Mi Rohky ) vs. InChuucery, Clat Koiiinbon, ) Douglass F.
