T. T. McDOUGAL, KD1TOK AND PKOPK1KTOK. Wednesday, March. ’ It, 1901. The great trio : Sampson's pen ; Dewey’s house; ami Hobson's raouib. Jacan is following our good ex ample in rapidly withdrawing its troops from China. Ex-President Benjamin Har rison has been quite sick with the grip for several days. Although Congress doesn't ob serve Leut, some of its members are iu sackcloth and ashes. American missionaries are los ing uo time in the Philippines, aud their work is meeting with much success. The llay-Pauneefote treaty died March 4, but if desired by the two governments its restoration to life will be easy. Reducing the number of Ameri can troops in Pekin is only carrying out the announced policy of this government. President McKinley’s second inaugural address would be hard to beat, either as a common sense busi ness speech or a patriotic talk. An attempt is to be made to im peach Gov. Beckham, of Ky , for having used the pardoning power ♦ or gain and other corrupt purposes. Gov. Dktkm ii says the Nebraska legislature will certainly elect two Republican Senators, but lie admits that nobody can yet name either < f them. Sensible persons are not worry ing over the authority that Congress has given President McKinley in the Philippines; they know it will not be abused. Imagine the teelings of John F. Dovey, who found out a few minutes after enlisting in the navy that he was one of ten heiis to a fortune of $4,000,000. The attendance at President Mc Kinley s second inauguration was a record breaker, which shows that the people appreciate a good thing when they have it. It is only necessary to watch Russia clinching its hold on Chinese territory already under its control to be convinced that lying is not prohibited in Russian daplotnacy. 1 he Chicago evangelist who has offered to wager $1,000 that he can make fifteen converts in two weeks in any church in that town will be called “a dead game sport if he isn’t careful. Senator C. L. McGee, the poli tician and owner of the Pitts burg Times and News, died at his Harrisburg (Pa.) home last Fri day. He was the leader of the anti-Quay faction. 1 mk establishment of a line of wteamert. between Chicago and Kurope recalls the fact that ('apt. C. D. Pierce, about 25 years ago, loaded a vessel at Chicago and took it directly to Kurope. Thk new code for the District of ( olmnhia, passed during the closing hours of Congress, imposes a pen alty of ten years’ imprisonment for sending, receiving or carrying a challenge to fight a duel. Pkttiorkw, Allen and Lentz are leading the push on the toboggan slide which runs into the lake of oblivion. Their fate should he a warning to traitorously inclined men who happen to break into Congros*. Cotkrnok W in ihas announced the appointment of two members of the Penitentiary board. The ap pointees are ex-SherifT Whyte, of Welch, McDowell county, who is named to take the place vacated by the resignation of Col. T. K. Hous ton, Klkborn, and Hon. Newton Ogden, of St. .Marys, who is named to take the place made vacant f»y the resignation of Auditor A. C. Scherr. < The new appointments are made' effective at once, but it is also an nounced that when the different hoards are reconstructed under the new law both of these men will be made members. Govkbnob A. R. Wiiitk with the remainder of the State officers, was duly inaugurated on Monday, March the 4th, in the presence of a large crowd of people. The dignity with which Vice 1 resident Roosevelt presided over the extra executive sessions of the Senate, which were held to con firm Presidential nominations, must jar the readers of the yellow journ als. Mu. h,. R. II of km .vx, formerly of the Lincoln County C itizen, which was burned out not long since, has formed a partnership with Mr. S. K. Dawson, of the Observer of this city. Mr. Iloffman arrived here last night. — Pt. Pleasant Register. We judge, from the above, the Citizen will not be revived. rI uk question of how long Ameri can occupation of Cuba shall con tinue has now been passed along to the Cubans; they can run their own government as soon as they comply with the conditions laid down by j Congress and approved by President ; McKinley. As will be seen by reference to an item elsewhere in this paper, Filbert R. Iloffman, formerly editor and proprietor of the Lincoln Citizen, has associated himself with S. K. Dawson in the publication of the Pt. Pleasant Observer. Success, gentlemen. Ax express agent at Pennsboro named White has recently been indicted and heavily fined for delivering express packages of liquor to parties other than those to whom addressed. It has been the custom with many agents when the one to whom the package, or jug a* the cane may be, failed to call for name, to turn the liquor over to any one who would pay the cxpressage, the saloon - keepers (those who sent the goods), giving instructions to this effect. This has been interpreted as selling, and express agents will do well to bear this in mind. Governor White’s inaugural address was a splendid one and we are sorry we have not room to publish it m full. The new Gov ernor starts out well aud we will miss our guess if he does not make one of the best Chief Magis trates this State has ever had There are doubtless higher hon ors, too, for Mr. White. Mu. William Waldeof Astor, whose money comes from this coun try and is spent in England, where be has acquired citizenship and a number of snubs, is said to belaying wires for the purchase of a an En glish title. We trust he w ill succeed; there will be no danger of bis ever coming back to us. We can get along without bis kind. - ^ ♦ m-- — — At the “Inauguration banquet” of the Woman’s National Republi can Association, givqn in Wash ington, Senator Depew was the only man among the speakers. On the back ot each of the menu cords was the following: “The Repub lican party is the party of action; its breath is progress; its speech is the language of the world; its dialect the rhetoric of the house and the farm and the shop. It holds within its ranks the armies of all reforms. It studies political conditions, weighs popular senti ment aud siezes the earliest hour to crystalize that sentiment into wise legislation. Its heroic con stituencies are the thinking, mov iug, vital elements of American life.” REDUCING STOCK With a View to SELLING OUT! $20,000 stock ot Boots and Shoes’ to bo slaughtered.
