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.
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.

liclea specified were "all foqgjfe#

imported for transplanting,
propagation or experiment. The
enrolling clerk, in copying the
| bill, changed the hyphen in the
compound word -'fruit-plants,''
to ? comma, making it read, -'all
foreign fruit, plants," etc. The
consequence was that for a year
?until Congress could remedy
the blunder?all the oranges,lem
ons. bananas, grapes and other
foreign fruits were admitted free
of duty. This little mistake,
which the most careful man
might easily have made, cost the
government about $2,000,000.?
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.
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
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?

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

Naw long live James and long live
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.
