Now that Castner & Curran have made a substantial reduction in the price of Pocahontas coal it is hoped the people of this city and section will be proportion? ately benefited. ~ The man who supplied the Bible upon ?which President McKinley took the oath of office has finallj secured a job for his son in one of the departments. It was a devious route to the pie counter, but it was successful. . Tho crop reports from various parts of the country indicate that conditions in the South are more favorable than in the rest of the country, except that cotton is a little backward. Harvesting of winter wheat is now general in this section and the yield is generally satisfactory. 'Ohe South in material advancement is steadily progressing and the day cannot be far distant when its great advantages will be ful'y appreciated and immigrants will swarm into these States by thousands. The scheme to put a duty on raw cot? ton, which emanated from Senator Ba? con, of Georgia, seems "in a fair way of adoption by a Bepublicau Congress. It looks like a popular .move, and although not in line with the Democratic tariff policy, has already received the support of five Senators of that party. The effect of the passage of the measure is variously interpreted, some of the lending Demo? crats being particularly vigorous in their opposition to itj but Senator Bacon in? sists that the omission of cotton from the dutiable list is a violation of that part of the Democratic platform which holds that tariff taxation should "not discrimi? nate against any section. With the South gradually developing iuto 'a manufactur? ing section and a duty on raw cotton, there is no knowing what will finally be the gains of protection in this direction. C. A. Spreckles, of San Francisco,a son of Clans Spreckles, the California sugar king, says the trust,by the time the tariff bill becomes a law, will have imported from 800.000 to 1,000,000 short tons of sugar into this country for the purpose of evading the tax. In order to save the $10,000,000 to $20,000,000 which would be put into the treasury of tho United States, Mr. Spreckles recommends that the Government fix an internal revenue tax of from $10 to $1S per ton to be levied on all sugars refined in this country for the next six months. As the enormous stock which the trust has imported will have to be refined within that period to avoid waste and deterioration the Govern? ment will get the profits of their attempt? ed evasion of the tariff laws. There seems to be considerable merit in the plan, and the tariff tinkers would do well to adopt it. WAR IS POSSIBLE. Those who arc clamoring for a war with Spain have not probably 'taaen into con? sideration the fact that io point of num? bers the first named country could put in the field Ht once ten times as many sol? diers as this Government could. It might be possible to mobili/.e about 40.000 men of the regulor army and State troops in two weeks: but it would take at 'east two months tc get volunteers well enough trained to take the field. In that time, however, if necessary, the United States could raise 000,000 men, ready to go to -Cuba, Spain or anywhere else that duty demanded. Spain, to begin with, has about 10,000 men In Cuba and by strain? ing every resource might in a month have at least 10,000 more on this side of the Atlantic; but our militia could easily, Blood means sound health.

The navy of the United States is far superior to Spain and would soon sweep the lazy Dons from the seas. The whole situation summed up is about this: .The United States might get the worst of it in a few of the first encounters: but by ;he time the American fighting spirit would be arous? ed, Cuba and all the Spanish possessions in the Gulf of Mexico would soon be "an? nexed. " AN ALIEN GRADUATE. Francesca Alcantara, tho young Venez? uelan who was recently graduated from West Point, has every opportunitv before him for a distinguished career. His fa? ther, who died some years'ago, was one of the most patriotic citizens in the South American republic. He'served as presi? dent of the country, was an able states? man, and was comuiander-in-chief of its army. As a thoroughly military educa? tion is tbe speediest way to preferment in Venezuela, General Alcantara was very anxious that his son should have every advantage In this Respect. Before he died he expressed a desire '.that his ouly son should he educated at the United States Military ^Academy and Congress, at the request of the '.Venezuelan govern? ment, passed the necessary resolution ad? mitting him to West Point. As young Alcantara is not a citizen of the United States, he will not receive a diploma, which would commission him a lieuten? ant, in the army of this.- country, but will merely receive a certificate from tho academic board, setting forth his qualifi? cations as a student and the fact that he has passed the standard of proficiency re? quired of candidates for commissions in the army. It is his [intention to return to his native country and present the cer? tificate of graduation to President Crespo, who will give him a captain's commission in the Venezuelan army. He will then assist in reorganization of that army.and apply the practical ".knowledge gaiued at West Point to drilling and disciplining the Venezuelan^trocps. If he does not become ambit ions for presidential honors too soon, and cause a revolution, there is good reason to believe that in due time he will attaiu to the honors and offices once held by his father. HAWAII AND JAPAN. * Serious trouble is threatened between Hawaii and Js.pau, and unless the United States intervenes in behalf of the former government there is danger that the island will become a Japanese colonv. Twenty years or more ago the king of the island, owing to the difficulties; in securiug Chi? nese coolies for work on the sugar planta? tions, made a treaty with Japan for the introduction of laborers from that conn try Into Hawaii. The Japanese there have greatly increased ^in numbers and now demand the same'rights that are given to white people who settle in the islands. Their government has recently made a demand on President Dole to that effect, accompanied by a threat of rssortiug to force, and poor little Hawaii is now in serious danger of being overrun by "the children of the Rising Sun." The rulers of ".the Hawaiian republic and most of the whites in the islands are anxious for annexation to the United States, aud. if tho worst comes, will hd peal to this country for assistance. Should the latter, they say, he so blind to its interests in the Pacific as to pay no attention to this appeal, thuv will invite the British government to take posses? sion of the islands, and they tire confident it will gladly do so. This talk of British occupation is only a bluff, for the people ol tbe United States will never consent to sue.h an arrangement, and the Dole peo? ple are well aware of this fact; nor will Undo Sain ever permit the lordly aud ag? gressive Japs to assume coDtrol of the islands. Tbe situation may be a little mixed just now, but annexation eventu? ally is a certainty. The United States coquetted n long time before admitting Texas into the Unionbut when Mexico protested against this invasion of her rights, a war with this country followed, which ended in the absorbtion of territory many times larger*than tho State which was the bone of contention. So in ifdil when Texas and ten other Southern States attempted to set up in business for. themselves,; tho Federal government objected,and brought them back by forte into the Union. Ha wai1 may find it hard to cuter into the sisterhood of States; but when once she has joined the.band, there is not the slightest chance for her to break the con t ract.

Kinley will uot intervene between the gov- ' eminent of Spain and the Cuban belliger? ents until he has first undertaken to set? tle the Ruiz case. Commissioner Calhouo supplements tho report of Consul Gene? ral Lee by* declariug that Dr. Ruiz, an American citizen, was deprived of his liberty in violation of locul and interna? tional law; that be was held in solitary confinement 243 hours boyond the I seventy-two hours limit, which was in violation of his "treaty rights, and that 315 hours after nls arrrst and incarcera? tion he tvas dead. Pieefdeut McKinley has awaited the return of his special com? missioner and the flnal report of the con? sul general. He has been deliberative and conservative. In due season it will be demonstrated that ihere was sincerity and genuine sympathy in the expressions uttered by the President, and the Secre? tary of State to the widow of the unfor? tunate man. It will be remembered that Secretary Sherman in a fatherly manner took the hand of the widow in both of his own, placed his hands upontthe "heads of her fatber'ess children and assured 'them all that justice should be done. It will be re* called that the President received Madame Ruiz at the White House and gave her similar assurance in the same whole, hearted manner. The President did not see the'children, for the reason that he then expressed that he ' did not want his feelings to be aroused by tho presence of tho little ones. He~felt that he should hear 'the story of the widow from her own [Hps,, without having bis judgment turned aside by hi? symputhiis. He heard the story calmly, although it was delivered to him with heart-broken sobs. He gave the widow and mother and fatherless children his personal assurance that justice should bo done. He will ful? fill that promise. Before any step is taken 'in 'the matter of bringing the war iu Cuba to a conclu? sion President McKinley will take such conservative action ns may be deemed necessary to secure indemnity for the out? rage perpetrated in the murder^of Dr. Ruiz. Whether the fair-minded man was murdered by a blow from a prison official or whether he was m>?de mad by his soli? tary confinement and killed hlmsell [the government of Spain will be held ac? countable for the outrage and for the awful sufferings and tragic death of that American citizen. This is the deternii natio" of President McKinley. Upon this case will rest the initiation of the pro? ceedings which are last forthcoming to bring about a conclusion of the condition of horror and humiliation which now en? viron the people of Cuba. The President has formulated nodecln ration concerning the attitude which this government shall take in the matter of securing "pence with independence" for the CubHn insurgents. He has author? ized no statement nnd will authorize no statement concerning the* means to be employed to couclude what Commissioner Calhoun describes Jas a "ceaseless war? fare." That he is determined and will act with firmness nobody bus reason to doubt. But, first of all, the widow and orphans of au American citizen are enti? tled to an indemnity for their Buildings and their loss,and the Government of the United States is entitled to an apology and reparation for the international wrong which has been done. After the Ruiz case shall have been disposed of be wili take nction'concernlng the claims of the Cubans to belliuerent rights, or the recognition of their inde? pendence. It is understood that, at first the President will favor the recognition of the belligerent rights of the Insur? gents. Later on something may be done in the matter of the recognition of their imlepedcnce. The widow of Dr. Ruiz'has filed with the Department of State a claim for $100, 000 indemnity. Secretary Sherman has made no official statement concerning this claim, but he has said to an official of the department over which he presides, "I do not think that the amount is exces? sive, under the circumstances." It is therefore believed that the Presi? dent will receive from the Secretary of State a favorable report of the case and that a demand for indemnity in that sum will be made upon the government of Spain. A QUESTIONABLE PLAN. Our esteemed contemporary, the Hampton Monitor, is very much dis? turbed over the action of the city Demo? cratic committee of Richmond in requir? ing "candidates for the nominnt'on of governor to pav the costs of the primary for electing delegates from that city." "Let us suppose," says the Monitor, "that the other cities in Virginia imitate the example of Richmond. Let us sup? pose that the same plan be adopted by Charlottesville, Danville, Stauuton, Lynchburg, Roanoke. Winchester, Alex? andria, .Kredericksburg, Norfolk, Ports? mouth and Newport News, and by the counties and lesser towns, too. What must the result her Why. simplv that the man with the longest purse would buy his nomination. And all this from the Democratic party?the.party of the people -the party of equal rights, priv? ileges, and opportunities for all." It certainly strikes us that the Monitor has reason for complaint. We do not know what particular reason the city Democratic committee of Richmond had for choosing the plan explained in tho foregoing paragraph, anil [we should not intimate without good cause that any unfair motive prompted that choice. It is Our belief, however, that the committee would have done better if 'It had selected some other method of holding the pri? mary. The cost to each candidate who enters the primary at Richmond will be, ??e understand, four hundred dollars,and it is easily seen that, if the snmc process should be repeated throughout the State, a very respectable fortune would be re? quired to defray the expenses of candi? dacy. Of course, the Richmond plan may not in reality be adopted in many p'aces besides Richmond; but the principle re? mains unchanged.?Norfolk Pilot. SHOULD BK SECURED. %Hon.William J.

On receiving the medal Mr. Mason delighted tho audience with a well delivered antl eloquent address on "The Destiny of Our Country." The marshals of the evening were J. S. Kuykendall, cf West Virginia, aud G.,L. Morriss, of Lynchburg. The board of trustees are in session with a very large att ndnnce.

S. Stuart, of Bristol, Va. The judge is ono of the re? cent alumni of the college and his address on the "Duties of Citizenship" was stir? ring ami eloquent.

All the presentation speeches were good and in some cases witty thrusts provoked storms of applause and laughter. After the celebration was over the tre? mendous audience retired from the college cburch and the young people enjoyed themselves in promending and chatting. WILL CARRY GUNS. "While tbe Renublicans may sit silent In the Senate and refuse to explain or tie? fend their tariff bill,", said Senator Mills yesterday, "we can appeal to the tribunal of the people and we will win. There will not be a peg left for the Republicans to stand on. We wi'l carry Ohio next fall, and the next House of Representatives will be overwhelmingly Democratic. But," said Mr. Mills, "our party ought to stand together. We ought not to be stampeded by the appeals of the lumber men or the borax men. or any other sort of men into any agreement'.for high du? ties. I have been through a storm in my State, which is one of the greatest wool raising States in the Union, ever since I espoused the cause of free";wool, bn?, be? lieving I was right, I have 'not wavered. The effect of this tariff bill upon the peo? ple will be seen, however, not in its high taxation, hut in the way it buttresses and fortifies trusts of all kinds. Some of these days this sort of legislation will have to cease or, we will see a revolution in this country. The people will not. stand it.

Mr. Tillman took tbe floor on the pend? ing amendment of Mr. Canuon providing nn export bounty on agricultural pro? ducts. He noticed the absence of a quo? rum, but a call showed that nine more than a quorum were present, and Mr. Tillman proceeded. After an hour's debate, Mr. Cannon's amendment whs rejected. The sugar schedule was then taken up. The com? mittee amendments heretofore proposed were withdrawn, leaving the House bill to" stand on sugar above the sixteen standard. The House "proposition was also modified by omitting that portion applying tO~syrups, juices, etc., and che provision as to the Hawaiian treaty. THE HOUSE.

But there is another evi' which of lnte has assumed gigantic proportions in this country, namely, the use of the cigarette, against which no orators lift their silver tongues; a habit which is Alarmingly on the in? crease, and which Is doing more to inca? pacitate and kill American youths than strong drink. Why is it that while tem? perance 'orators are damnintr tlie use and sale of liquor that no voice Is ever raised to check the sale and use of the Insidious cigarette!-' Nearly every paper we pick up contains Recounts of deaths from the deadly cigarette, or, what is worse, lives wrecked and memory and reason de? throned from their constant use. Yet in this so-called philanthropic and Christian age men aud women stand idly by and daily gaze at half-nude and voluptuous pictures that adorn" the' walls of nearly every store; pictures intended to advertise the poison, agaiust the law of morals and against the laws of the State.
