TWELVE PAGES TUESDAY, MARCH 14, 1S90. CROSS NG THE RUBICON. We are glad to ses that public opln- i Ion Is not yet completely Impotent at ! Washington, particularly with the President, shown in his declared in? tention to keep tho army down to 65,000 men. although he Is empowered to raise It. to 100,000,?unless an emergency arises; yet how easy It Is to create an apparent emergency, or assert one, and deceive many of the people". . The fact Is, as THE VIRGINIAN PILOT has Invariably agreed, that, personally, the President ns Mr. Mc? Kinley. Is on amiable gentleman, pri? vately, with good intentions und of that character which Is very amenable to the popular Voice; but, unfortunately, this same character exposes him to the evil Influences of the sort of men he 1 has gathered around him; or have fas? tened themselves upon him, and who have no broad statesmanship, no pa? triotism and no conscience. Nevertheless, it Is n matter to be de? voutly thankful fgr, that n free press still survives, and that th ire uro still able and lioneui representatives of it that are in into sympathy with the general welfare and the spirit of lib? erty which yet Ulis the people, and that can still ren h the ear of our Chief Magistrate. 11 [withstanding the throng of narrow self-s Ickers who sur? round him and endeavor to shut him off from contact with that opinion which must rule, if we are to remain :t real Republic. - - This matter of keeping the army within reasonable and necessaryb mnds (if It be admitted that nny army Is necessary or constitutional tor th Federal government, except tho Statt Militia, in time of nonce), is not the first Instance In which Mr. McKinley lins suddenly withdrawn from an ex? treme position, and got nearer to the public; but It Is In this Impressibility lie the difficulty and ?'.anger with such a President; too often, the last mid nearest advi -rs Mill him hither and thither, like a pttppct. The sen;:.? of position und power has taken possession of this gentleman from Ohio; and it Is no! only n fei II ig of obligation t? Hanna, ami the polit? ico-money trust of Which ho is agent, that makes him so ohst tail itn ly atten? tive to Hnnnn and his follow creatures of Hanna and the creatures of [Tanna himself, but a lively sense that it is lipon them depends whether or not he shall have a second term at tho hea l of government. There is some thing al? most pathetic in this meek executive fidelity to the Hanna creative power; and, no doubt. If lie had been nomi? nated and elected by the people In 180G, this same fidelity would make him nil admirable President, with a term in view as Its reward. But what proportion of this army of 65.000 men is to be retained in th United Stntes? Not a single man of them. If the constitution 1.bserved according to the oath Mr. Mo.KlnleJ took at hla Inauguration. Tho state Militia and Stale police, together with the posse comltalus of the people, are the only constitutional f ores p. for tho Federal government on land and for Interior or d >mestic use, In tlmo of pence. Every army and every officer and soldier of i:, even If the net of Congress say different, can not be lawfully kept within tho bounds of the United States one day 'longcr than m ty be repulred to enroll, equip and dispatch them abroad to their fields of service Iii the Philippines, Cuba, Potto Rico and Hawaii, or other forelrm subject territory. There are precedents to tiu contrary: yet Caesar, when bo crossed the Rubicon with his legions, did not more surely violate Roman law, than does any President of the United States break out American law, and the constitution he swore to support, when he keeps up In time of pcadb, within the United States, any body of Federal troops, or invades any State with them. Whatever may be the law ami fact as to the Philippines, or Cuba, there Is no Intelligent question that any Fede? ral soldiers now within the States ore th?re unconstitutionally, save ns they mny have been brought home. In good faith, to be discharged as speedily., as possible. , CUBAN MISGOVERNMENT. Any military government of an en? lightened and civilized people Is neces? sarily mlsgovcrnment, because It is a misfit In every way; and if such gov? ernment, in time of peace, be put over men who have caught the Infection of civil liberty, it must, in the very na? ture of things, be, or become, a mon? strous tyranny, no matter how, nor by whom, administered. The subjection of civil things and civil authority, to mil? itary control, Is an Inversion of matters so unnatural that the system must bear evil fruits, continually and exclusively. Hahana nrd Santiago are the princi? pal cities and districts hehl directly by our military Governors and their ar? mies; from both como uncontradlcted reports of raging and ravaging disease, prevailing starvation, general discon? tent, and growing disorder. We may be sure that conditions are pretty much the same all over the island, and will now rapidly grow worse under the cir? cumstances, and a system which seems carefully calculated and administered to drive tho people to desperation, bate and the frenzies of violence. The military government la central? ized and despotic, under a Governor General at Habana, who has neither the capacity, nor tin; disposition, nor the temper for his high functions and re? sponsibilities. Gen. Brooke is probably the most improper person, civil or mili? tary, that could have been selected ns Governor of Cuba, whether to manage Its affairs wisely or to treat Its people in a conciliatory and trust-Inspiring ".ay. Weak and vacillating, with all his power nnd despotic authority, he has no settled system of his own, nor will he allow any of bis .abler and bet? ter .subordinates to pursue a just anil harmonizing policy. II.; has crippled and baffled Wood so at Santiago that his good government lias been betrayed to failure and to the wrath of a peo? ple who had begun to have confidence in American rule and Intention. The Santlngoans are now on the eve of in? su rrectlon. Gen. Fltzbugh I.ee. too, familiar with Cubans, Cuba and the conditions of the situation, and a respected and trusted acquaintance, whom the people have long looked upon ns a true friend, lias been so hampered In bis proper powers, functions and duties that lie can ac? complish little or anything, nnd Is be? ginning to be blamed hero and In the Island for what he cannot help. Gen. Brooke Is military di< ta:or of the Island, ami his chief business Is to make this fact known and felt among the Amer? icans, ns well as the Cubans. He is largely In tbe hands of a clique who have Washington backing and co-ope? ration, stud Iiis personal Idiosyncrasies nro made use of. by those who have his car, lo forward the schemes and alms of the Hannn-Habana-Washlngton-Al ger combination. Soon the heated and rainy season will set In. with nil the opportunities for bettering the material, sanitary and po? litic:! conditions passed, wasted nnd unimproved; end as the weather nnd temperature begin their Joint work of disease and death, the Cubans will grow more discontented and hopeless as they note tbe physical unfltncss of the Americans to meet the exigencies nf the occasion, demoralised,unmanned nnd pnnlc-strlcken by tho torrid heat and rain, nnd the chol >rn, yellow-fever and otlu r deadly maladies they breed. Eve? ry energy and resource should ':. irei i fore have been applied diligently and wisely to improve the sanitary condi? tions, especially in the cities nnd princi? pal towns, ami to regulating nnd set? tling local government in native hands, so that as summer approached the An titans could be withdrawn, leaving behind only those who were acclimated or essential to the general supervision ef nffalrs, until Cuban autonomy should be fully established. And why Is ihis postponed or de? layed? it would have been far better to have frankly taken the Cuban Repub? lic into Immediate co-operation with us, as a temporary or provisional civil government, subject lo amendments and nit- rations as might be demanded lo'give general welcome and peaceful stability to the regular permanent gov? ernment. Btii this government seems to be furl her off than ever, and all that v.e have done, are doing, or propose, j tend, as dilatory motions, to stave it off more and more. UNGRATEFUL CUBANS. That Cubans are ungrateful has b on too frequently demonstrated to admit of a reasonable doubt. Whether this despicable characteristic was Inherited from Spain, i. e-, is In the blood; mat? ters not, for a BUfTh lent number of in? stances of base Ingratitude have trans? pired since ihc United Stat. s troopa first set foot upon the Island of Cuba to convict tho Cubans of this blackest of sins. A: ?l what !s worse, their in graiitudtj iti directed principally, if not solely, toward their greatest benefac? tors. General Maximo Gomez fought Spain .'or nearly ilfteen years to gain freedom for his fellow Islanders, and was largely Instrumental In obtaining ths aid of the United States In the accom? plishment of the one object of Iiis life. Cuba, was wrested from the tyrannical control, of the Spaniards, with the as? surance that as soon as the insurgents demonstrated their capacity for self government they would be placed in possession of the reins of government In the island. We went so far as to advance, money to p .y the soldiers of Gomez, at bis solicitation, a part of what is due them, and since our oc? cupancy of the provinces large cargoe. Ot provisions have been distributed among the starving poor. On Saturday last the Cuban Assem? bly, by a vote of "0 to -l, impeached General Gomez, and removed him from tho position of commander-ln-chtef of the Cuban army. This ia tho work of jealous officers who owe everything to Gomez: nnd petty politicians who hope to rise upon his ruin- If Cuba ever becomes an Independent republic the people will In large measure owe it to the very man their so-called represen? tatives are endeavoring to humiliate and destroy, lie lias sacrilleed for I hem everything save honor and this they would rob him of. In nil that has been said and done, tho Cubans have given no stronger proof of tlielr In? capacity for self-government than this act of the Cuban Assembly. THE WISCONSIN LEGISLATURE. The Wisconsin Legislature may in time become a useful body. There Is in some if the bills Introduced an Im? plied promise to that effect. One of the measures that is agitating the statesmen of that State is directed against tight lacing. Having passed a bill that practically destroys the sanc? tity of marriage, It is not surprising that the Wisconsin law-makers are learning to estop wasting time on vague, uninteresting things, such as appropri? ation bills, tax-levies, police laws and the like and settle down to practical everyday affairs that will do some? body some good. This admirable proposition to pro? hibit tight lacing Is a step In the right direction nnd was to be expected of a body that tried to place Wisconsin in the very front rank as a divorce man? ufacturing State. After the tight lacing problem is solved we would sug? gest to our Wisconsin fellow citizens the propriety of moving unanimously against the bunion-producing habit of wearing tooth-pick, toe-platting shoes. This disposed of, they could confer an inestimable boon upon humanity by ex? tracting from water the sin with which it is supposed to have become Impreg? nated when a great majority of living things was sentenced to drowning be? cause of sin. so that man would no longer have excuse far drinking whis? key Instead of water. 1:', after (secur? ing thci'e blessings to suffering human? ity the Wisconsin Legislature lias any time left, it could be profitably dis? posed of it enacting laws forbidding any cow from allowing water to es? cape with her milk, and any steer from growing bones in its porterhouse steak. Senator Albert J. Bevorldge, of In? diana, is consistently an expansionist. When quite small and only Ilfteen years of age, he was a teamster.and at thirty six he was a United States Senator. For his education and his subsequent rise in the legal profession he was Indebted to his own exertions. His si: cess proves that the opportunities for poor boys to expand into prominence, useful? ness and successful careers have not passed away. McKinley and Hnnna, confident of the success of their unholy plans with ref. rence to the Philippines, will take a few days off and go to Georgia to view the watermelon grounds. When they return to Washington, browned with the Georgia sun and chuck t'ul ??: new deviltry, and energy for the fra>. they will find that lb ir enemies have l. at tied the lesson that Mac and Mar'., will bear watching. Ice men in different communities nr. cooly pooling their interests. It is pos? sible that they consider it advisable to do something to obviate the necessity of putting in circulation the usual c pl.lints regarding a "failure of the i?e crop." No such reason for advancing prices Is likely to b..- tolerated this >'? ar. Manufacturers may paste this assur? ance in their hats so as to keep it in mli-d. The Wilson (N. C.) ' Hemocrat has passed to the control of Messrs. Chas. is. Emery and Edward E. Brltton, as editors and promoters. They have en? larged it and put new Ufa into the local news and editorial pages, and the Indi? cations are that they will make it an Influential and prosperous ?Lilly. The Virginian-Pilot wishes them success. The Danville Register has greatly improved nn.let- the management of Senator James. He is a. good writer and an uncompromising Democrat; Tl . re is no lain: of Hanna-McKlnlCy Ism about the Register under his marts ngement. The question now Is have President McKinley and the S nato made Dewey an ex pans I mlsl by expanding him into a full Admiral. Spain once offered twenty-five thou? sand dollars for the head Of Aguinalda. but v.as unable to obtain 1; or reduc lta circumference. VIRGINIAN-PILOT'S (Copyrighted, 1399.) DIRECTED BY PROF.

As itt the case of breadstufts, so in meat products. It is the United States] and Great Britain that we have most, to take Into coii.sider.uion In obtaining a correct view of the world's trndt The United States, in respect to meatl products, is tho country of greatest production, of greatest aggregate con? sumption, of greatest individual con? sumption and of greatest exportation. Great Britain Is Ihe country of great? est Importation. Great Britain Is the United States' best and most impor? tant customer its a purchaser. Thcl United States Is Great Britain's most | important source of supply. It Is the substantiation and Illustra? tion of these statements that form the| subject of tin: present and next-fol lowing paper in our course. The production of meat -that Is. of j beef, mutton and pbrlt?by the princi? pal meat-producing clvlllxed nations of the world IS estimate,t tu be I S.', I J." ? I tons annually.

The explanation o< this i:- that n 'treat part of tin- meat .. dtictlon of the United States is pork, with h. pound for poun I. is of much less value than the pririte beef which forms n large part of the meat production of Gr-a: Britain. The production per inhabitant In dif? ferent edimtrlea varies very cohs'lderh j bly both from the total production and the vaiu of ihe total [>:? duetion.

The amount spent annually on meat j by the different nations of the world is hoi in direct proportion to the quail-| tlty consumed. The prices of meat b ing higher in the manufacturing coun- j tries of western Europe than in newer countries of the world, it foUl lows that the Inhabitants of western Europe have to pay a larger amount j per annum for the me.it they consume i than those who live wh. re ::; ;at ia cheaper. Great Britain, for example,! th up ii it consumes less meat per in-' habitant than the United state.--, pays m ore per Individual for its meat than I does the' United States. There Is a dif? ference, too, varying with the quality | <.f meat eaten. Switzerland, fur ex-J ; le. which Is a pror.porous country with ii large, wcll-patronlzed, liigii clasj hotel trade, pays more fir Its! meat; than any other country of Ku rope except Great Britain, The reason f r thin is thai oh the whole It eats better meat.

To supply ; he meat consumption of thi- people of the United states the Im nse amount of 11,000,000,000 pound: ot meat is needed annually. In round numbers this includes 5,000,000,000 pounds of beef. 4,000,000,000 pounds of pork and stio.noo.ciia pounds of mutton. The remainder is principally poultry, it will be seen, then, how great the leat production of the United States m.'it be in order to supply I his enor? mous demand for home consumption and also the enormous export trade In meat products which we are able to car: y tin.
