ROOSEVELT AM) 1>1 YORCK.
Some papers whose views are us
narrow on most all other subjects as
on the patriotic course of President
Roosevelt in his official acts are now
diligently engaged in criticising liis
s|Kfial message to congress on t!.c
divorcc" question, a question t hut "?
agitiiting not only great religious
denominations hut also the people
in general of the nation, and truly
none have set forth the matter more
clearly than he. when he savs:
"I call the attention of the Con
gress to the fact that no statistics
have been collected by the Federal
Government upon the subjects of
marriage and divorce since the year
188G. and that but few of the States
have provisions for the collection of
sueli statistics.
"The institution of marriage f=
of course at the very foundation of
our social organization, and ally in
fluences that affect that institution
are of vital concern tn the people of
the whole country. There is n wide
spread conviction that the divorce
laws fire dangerously lux and indif
ferently administered in some of
tlie States, resulting in diminishing
regard for the sanctity of. the mar
riage relation.
"The hope is entertained that c.
operation anion" the several States
cart In* secured to the end that there
may be enacted upon the subject of
marriage and divorce uniform laws
containing all possible safeguards
for the security of the family. In
telligent and prudent action in that
direction will be srreatlv prompt'1:!
by securing reliable and trustworthy
statistics u|>on marriage and divorce.
"T deem the matter of sufficient
general importance to recommend
that the Director of the Census be
authorized by appropriate legisla
tion to colli-et and publish statistics
]>ertaining to that subject covering
the period from IfiSfi to the present
time."
Certainly there is nothing that af
fects the welfare of the nation si
much as its social fabric and fro .
marriage is that fabric woven, and
as congress is designed to look after
the interests of the people as a whole
that body's duty is to give its atten
tion to this phase of American life.
To act advisedly on this question it
is essential that all such information
should be gathered as will give crm
gress a clear insight Into prevalent
conditions.
As suggested by Mr. Roosevelt the
fundamental principle of a researeb
of the question is the matter of
gathering statistics and no branch
of the covernment is so well equip
ped as the census burenn for the pu.'
pose. With full details and particu
lars. such as that department gathers
about other features of the country
and its people, congress will Fit
readily where the weak places tee
and be enabled to pass legislation of
a enrative nature.
Resides, in answer to his critic?
on this question, it is now observed
that some of fcho leading religion''
lights of the eountrv are urging th>
state legislatures tn ask congress to
tike a hand. Of course, one of t'.f
objects here is to get a unanimity
ef sentiment on the qne-ti<>n so thai
there mav be overcome the conflict;
of legislation that now prevaii
timong the many states, and wit ? |
that done the problem will be eav
of solution with the aid of the fal'
eral government, or by that go<en.
inent altogether.
Possibly no message w;ls more
j timely than that of the President
I on divorce and certainly none of
greater importance. The press and
pulpit generally should urge con
gress to carry out the nuggestions
made therein and to do all else t.'vr
will tend to sneedily cornet this
evil, which appears to be getting a
strong grasp on the nation.
THAT MtMOIlY.
Tt i> a matter that is subject to
much criticism, when it comes to an
outlay of $7.1,0(10 or more for what
purports to be an armory in I'arkerv
burg. but. which in reality, gome sav.
will be a big ball room for the social
set of that city. Thin is only a part
of the cost. The state will liHve to
pay care-takers, buy light and beat,
and pay for insurance every year t ~>
come.
It is a matter of grave doubt as to
whether the state needs such a build
ing. Tt might hi' well enough for
West Virginia to have a big storage
house, but certainly there is no ad
vantage in general to the soldiery of
the state to h.ave one big headquar
ters, which it can never reach, ex
cept on special occasion. What goal
would an armory out at Parkersburg
do to Clarksburg soldierv?
Also in this connection the os.,
tablishment of an armory at Par
kersburg as proposed would lie a
sure bid for the state encampment
every year and Parkersburg would
be made military headquarters for
the state, when, in fact, such a head
quarters should be at or near the
seat of government. There are
other places in the state entitled to
just as much consideration, siu.Ii as
Clarksbrug, Wheeling, Parkersburg,
' Fairmont, Grafton. Martinsburi:.
Charleston and Huntington. Also
in this connection why should there
not be established smaller buildings
all over the state where there are
military organization?? Why have
a monument at Parkersburg, a"pa^
aee. we might say, and a kennel in
Clarksburg?
It is true tin* military organiza
tion of this stafe is entitled lo much
more consideration than ha.- here
tofore been given it. and it certair
l.v would lie in the interest of that
organization to provide more ade
quately for the companies at their
respective homes, rather than ha\ <
one central place, fo which thev will
have to go gadding to be a sharer in
the benefit.
Again, if Parkersbnrg is to have
such an armory, Clarksburg aril
other places are certainly entitled to
one a piece. (If recent date Clarks
burg and some other place- had hi
furnish the soldierv, when occasi u
required. Parkersburg was not re
quired to go to the call of the state
nor was that place asked to risk the
lives of its young men. Whv then
is Parkersburg entitled to all this
consideration ?
(lltliA TEIi SA T.EM.
Salem "has been in the public eve
ever since the great conflagration
happened that threatened to wi|ie
that place off the face of the earth
Owing fo the hitter internal dissen
sions there, the state at a distance
has nol gathered a verv favorable
impression of Salem, but within the
last few weeks the drilling of oil
wells on the state proper!v there has
arrested close attention to the pro
posed city, and the newspapers a-e
nwakening to the fact that Salem is
a rising city, with prospects of real
area!noes, if the handicap is taken
?iff. Fogy ism and selfishness have
'<?n<r undertaken fo dominate
place and have materially retarded
its development, as the result of
v. hich Salem is not the commanding
"ity that would have been there, if
these limitations had been lift.vl
vears ago. Among the state papers
that have become fttllv acquainted
With the Situation is the Parkers
linrg News, which is now lined or.
with the progressive ?-lr-mont a!
*alem and ablv urges the pass.w of
tllr ''?ff'a'''f?re as follows ?
"W ith every recurring session of
the legislature S:,|,.ln comes fnrwn
with ? request that she he granted .1
charier. Her requests have in ti e
past boon refnsod nwfnjr to the
frenuous protest that has gone ,,v
from within her own confines \
Salem charier bill i? -ow r,,ninnffi
and this time ,t has better promise
if success than at anv time in tV
l-ast. Even- delegate from TT-ir
rison eonntv is in favor of the hi]!
?nd the lobby against it sliows sign*
> nf Pristine
>trength. By all means give Salem
her charter. That place is no lon~
cr a village, but a thriving munici
pality which is rapidly going for
I war<l iu ways which will some day
'make hiT one of the be*t cities ill
Went Virginia. The cry is made
that tin* instrument now before tire
solons is in the interests of the
lii|iwr nieji. We do not believe that
(is true in its entirety. If saloons
are permitted within the corpornie
limits it could not poet-ibly be mon'
; disastrous to the community's mor
tals than the legion of speakeasir*
which how make it a hell hole. If
the charter will do nwav with this
evil then many faults could be for
given it. There can he no doubt
that Salem is at present handicapped
arjd she is deserving of anything
which will hasten her progress"
The Town of Adamston, under it*
new administration proposes to lo>k
after the interests of the people of
that place. The first thing the n.-w
administration did was to cut down
the current expenses by reducing the
salaries of the officers and its may r
openlv and emphatically declared
that his policy should he wlmt would
lie to the best interests of the town.
Now, the administration proposes
to grant a franchise for a gas cokv
panv there. The town has gas brl
it believes in competition. Tt is
announced that rntes under the ne.v
company will be reasonable and
lower than are now being charged
Hi' that as it may the competition
created bv the operation of another
gas company then- will naturally
bring the prices down.
