RICHARD B. TIPPETT,
OF BALTIMORE CITY.
Election, Tuesday, November 8.
The Duty of Democrats.
At no period since the great Civil Wai
have questions so grave and so important
presented themselves to the American people
as those which confront us at this time, and it
becomes the duty of every Democrat to stand
in his place and prevent, if possible, the con
summation of that which is the manifest design
of the Republican party. When the recent
war with Spain was inaugurated it was for
the ostensible purpose of freeing Cuba from
Spanish rule and allowing the people of that
island to work out their own independent
destiny. In other words, for “humanity s
sake" the war was declared and the appeal
made to the country, and to this appeal the
American people responded without regard
to party, notwithstanding the fact that many
thought the war ought and could have been
averted. After a short and decisive struggle
against a power infinitely inferior in point o I
strength to our own, we have banished the
Spanish flag from Cuba, and, in the course of
the war, have also taken Porto Rico, and have
placed the Philippines within our grasp.
Now it is, that the McKinley administration,
with the Republican party at its back, is
sounding the note of Empire, and declaring
its intention to take everything within reach;
ignoring ihe high-sounding principles for
which it assured the country the war was be
gun, and turning our easy victory over Spam
into a gigantic land-grabbing scheme.
The most serious part of this whole busi
ness, however, so far as the American people
are concerned, is that such a course would
entirely change the policy of the country
which has been adhered to from the begin
ning of its history, and is in direct contraven
tion of the pronounced sentiment of all the
early statesmen of our country, from Wash
ington down. We have grown great by
attending to our own business, and it
there is one note of warning, louder and
dearer than another, that comes to us from
our Fathers, it is to avoid all foreign entan
glements, just such entanglements as would
be sure at some time or other to follow the
proposed territorial expansion policy of the
Republican party. And what, pray, do we
want with more territory ? And what do we
want with a more mixed population than we
have on our hands at the present time ? We
find now the worst elements of the Republi
can party in many parts of our country, coal
escing with the negroes, and overriding all
law and order and decent government. At
this very time, iu North Carolina, the white
men have been compelled to rise en masse in
an endeavor to rid themselves of negro domi
nation foisted upon them by the Republican
party. And it is proposed now by this same
party to bring into our body politic other
hordes of thoroughly irresponsible persons,
without the slightest idea of what government
means, and thus add to our present race com
If the Republican party controls all the
branches of the general government, this will
he done. The only barrier that can intervene
is a Democratic House of Representatives,
and hence the necessity for the most deter
mined and earnest effort upon the part ot the
Democratic party to secure the control ot the
next House. This will lie decided at the
coming election on the Bth instant. Let
every Democrat stand iu his place and by the
power of his influence and his ballot thwart
the purposes of Republican Imperialism.
Something is going to drop the Democratic
way next Tuesday in both New York and
Pennsyvania. Let the Democrats of Mary
land line up, do their duty and be in a posi
tion to send their r ongratulations.
VOTERS, READ THIS.
The following article was published in the
Frederick, Md., Citizen of last week. We
hope eveiy reader of the Adoocate will study
it carefully and not allow themselves to be
deceived by the utterances of the papers al
luded to. The weekly and daily Sun has a
fair circulation among our rural citizens, es
pecially the daily, along the several railroads,
and it is to them we especially commend the
article. Instead of Thomas J. Poffenber sub
stitute the name of Richard B. Tippett :
“NcHHimper KnemicM f nomocracy.**
Governor Lloyd Lowdes has appealed to
the Gold Democrats to support Pearre for
Congress in the Sixth District as well as the
other Republican candidates throughout the
State. In this he is aided by the Baltimore
Sun and News, two newspapers, which, like
the serpent in the Garden of Eden that wound
itself into the confidence of our first parents
only to destroy them, parade under the guise
of Democracy, go into the homes ef unsus
pecting members of the parly in the State and
by the sacred fireside disseminate doctrines
of political treachery and disorganization.
These papers are now openly against the
Democratic party iu the State of Maryland.
In 1895 they began the opposition to what
they called the “Bosses” and with the aid of
disappointed bogus reformers, who suddenly
became politically purified and untainted by
seeing the light and having the handwriting
on the wall deciphered for them, accomplish
ed their purpose. That purpose was the de
feat of the Democratic party, to remove from
office men who were their personal or politi
cal enemies. If their idea had been to down
the “Bosses,” an opportunity would be theirs
now. They have set up an empire of bossism
where once their own party reigned, that is
alone in the history it has made for the short
period of time at its disposal. Unprejudiced
justice would have a fine chance here. Again
the next year these papers, aided by another
set of voters, defeated the party candidate
for President. That was on the gold and
silver issue and the same question has been
kept up ever since, even to the present cam
paign. The leopard cannot change its spots,
neither can the ii Siin , ‘ its golden diadem.
It claims life-long Democracy and then turns
its power to the aid of the enemy. For one
issue it sacrifices its ninety-nine sacred prin
ciples on the altar of the golden standard. It
is so wedded to its new policy that no amount
of argument or persuasion can change its pro
fram or deter its disposition to defeat the
temocratic candidates for Congress in Mary
land this year. Both the Sun and News are
the most malignant enemies to the parly and
we unhesitatingly deprecate their actions and
call upon the loyal Democrats of this county
and State to repudiate them. This can be
done by refusing to follow these serpents of
discord and treachery. Let them throw off
the mask and come out in the open fairly and
squarely. It would be a fair proposition
and then the people would know where to
place them. At present they decive many
honest Democrats who have listened to their
teachings for years past and are not yet
schooled as to their duplicity. If the Sun and
News desired to show their loyalty to Democ
racy, they would take quite a different position
autf try to promote harmony and not keep the
financial wound torn and bleeding by their
editorial tirades and denunciations. The
party is better equipped for the campaign
than in the last four year. The platform de
clared at Hagerstown is satisfactory to the
great body of voters and the candidate stands
squarely upon it despite the allegations of
these newspapers. We will wage this fight
without the aid of the Sun and News as we have
done before and the consciousness of doing
our duty, even in the face of odds and deser
tions in our own ranks, will be ample justifi
cation and reward. Letevery true Democrat
stand by his party this fall and do everything
to elect Thomas J. Poffeuberger to Congress.
Every Democrat should be at
the polls next Tuesday and cast
a ballot for Richard B. Tippett.

expansion and against imperial

Whither We Are Drifting.
Israel Zangwill, the English Jewish novel
s ist, now traveling in the United States, in an
1 interview a few day’s ago at Chicago said lie
> did not believe in Republics. He spoke par-
I ticularly ( f the French republic, which he
said was a republic only in name, and lie was
i not favorably impressed witli the government
; of the United States.
f The Army controls France, and the Freach
j government is republican only in name,
f The Army is getting very potent in the
e United States and the officers are taking mat
ters in their own hands. A tew weeks ago
, Col. Robert McGregor of the Ninth Cavalry
s held a train at Camden Station, Baltimore, on
g the main track of the Baltimore and Ohio
; railroad, for about an hour in order that he
r might get something to eat, and thus blocked
- all business during that time.
i On Sunday night last a battalion of negro
soldiers, the Tenth Colored Cavalry, held a
train iu the Southern Railway Station at
e Knoxville, Tennessee, in order that the offi
i cers could get something to eat, and thus
y blocked business.
It is no wonder Zangwill is not impressed
- with a republican form of government when
s such things can happen in what has been con
- sidered the model republic.

The United States were prosperous and the

Harry Taylor Convicted.
Harry Taylor, charged with the murder of
Lemuel Morris near Parkton on July 16 last,
was convicted of murder in the second degree
in the Circuit Court at Towson, on Tuesday
last, and sentenced to be confined in the peni
tentiary for 18 years.
The crime ot which Taylor was convicted
was one of the most brutal in the criminal
annals of Baltimore county. The crime, as
shown by the testimony of eye witnesses, was
committed near Parkton, in the Seventh dis
trict of Baltimore county. Taylor, who was
employed by Lemuel Morris, the murdered
man, proceeded to a body of woods with his
employer early in the morning of Julv 16.
They were to haul a load of logs from the
woods to a sawmill. On the way to the woods
Taylor was apparently in the best of humor,
laughing end joking. After they reached the
woods, and while they were engaged in load
ing the logs on the wagon, Morris cautioned
Taylor to get out of the way so that a log
would not strike him. Taylor took umbrage
at this and answered roughly. Morris after a
moment stooped down to pick up the log,
when Taylor, reaching behind him, secured
an axe and struck Morris two blows on the
back of the head, felling him instantly. He
then threw the axe at two boys who were
helping to load the logs, and started after
them. Finding that he could not catch them,
he went back to Morris and completed his
work, striking him three times.
The life of Taylor from his earliest years
has been a very sad and pathetic one. Born
an illegitimate child, he was taken at 8 years
of age from the only home he had ever known
and placed in the House of Refuge. Appar
ently of weak and wayward temperament,
morose and eccentric, without any softening
influence of home life, he grew up moody,
morbid, with an almost total lack of moral
sensibility. As a boy he would commit acts
sf the most causeless cruelty. At one time
he killed two dogs belonging!© his employer.
Alter he returned from the House of Refuge
he killed two calves. The country people,
and especially the negroes, regarded him with
an aversion founded on fear.
The trial was before Judges Fowler aqd
Burke. Taylor appeared unconcerned, even
careless. He was neatly dressed in a dark
coat and rough gray trousers. His brother
was in the courtroom. He was represented
by Emanuel W. Hermau, with whom was as
sociated Frank I. Duncan. State's Attorney
John S. Ensor, in his opening statement to
the court, gave an outline of the crime. Mr.
Duncan, for the defense, filed a plea of in-*
sanity, and on that theory the defense retied
Dr. A. R. Mitchell testified that he had at
tended Morris after he had been assaulted:
that he found him alive, but unconscious, and i
that he lived tor 15 minutes after he reached <
him. Death would have resulted from either
one of the five blows.
The Ladies’ Aid Society has purchased two
new combination stoves for Zion chapel to
take the place of the old ones. We learn
that they are very fine stoves.
November has come again; so have frosty
mornings, but our farmers are done seeding
and nearly done husking their com. Rick
ing fodder and fall plowing are now in order.
Our road supervisor is looking after the
public reads for the winter, and in most in
stances has them in fair condition.
Now that the farm labor is nearing com
pletion for the young folks, our larger boys
and girls are starting to school.
Our sportsmen are waiting patiently for the
expiration of the game law. They want rab
bit. Game here seems more numerous than
for years past, but most of our farmers have
advertised against hunting, so the huntsmen
will have to stay on the outside.

A voice we loved is stilled:
A place is vacant in our home
Which never can be tilled.
Affliction sore some time she bore,
Physicians were in vain;
God thought It best that she should rest
And eased her of her pain.
Mournfully, sadly, we laid in the tomb
Her form, though her spirit had fled
To Jesus, her Saviour, who’s taken her home
While sad hearts are saying, she’s dead.
But Jesus has told us their isn’t a death
To those who are born of the Lord.
But only transformed and passed on before:
And surely we doubt not his word.
Yes loved one sleep on. thou’stfree from all pain,
Through thy suffering hours did we soothe thee
When God in his mercy sent down from above
An angel that whispered a message of love.

RACTS WORTH READING
Do you use whiskey for medical purposes or
on your sideboard ? If so, is it not the first
thought to get an absolutely pure article, free
from all adulterations. How can you Letter
accomplish this than by buying direct from
the distiller. Did you ever stop to think
when buying a gallon of whiskey how many
profits you have paid from distiller to jobber,
from jobber to retail dealer and from retail
dealer to consumer; three profits added to
the cost. In buying from a distiller you pay
one fair profit, get goods direct from the dis- j
tiller free from all fusil oil and adulteration.
If my goods are not satisfactory they can be
returned and money will cheerfully be re
funded. I ask for the first order you will ask
for the second. Get a good article or none.
Try my 6 year old Whiskey $2.50 a gallon.
A word to the wise is sufficient.

I to the public.
Hreat complaint is made by the public of the poor quality of the different brands
of Package Coffee now almost universally sold. The people have a right to complain.
At the same time they have been the principal cause of this depreciation of good coffee
by buying the trash that is now roasted and packed in paper, and declining to buy
good coffee at 2or 3 cents per pound more than they pay for trash. The roasting of
coffee is now almost a lost art among country people. Now I have gotten up a roasted
coffee in bulk, not in packs, which L will sell retail at 15 cents per pound, which I
feel sure will give more satisfaction then most now sold at 25 cents per pound. I want
the public to try this 15 cent coffee.
GOOD BIIAZILLIAN COFFEES
are now .cheaper than they have been for 30 years, and there is no reason why our
people should be compelled to pay 25 cents per pound for good coffee, or submit to
buying the trash that is pushed at them in packs, and which if the people could see in
a green stale, they would turn from in disgust.
