John Murphy, editor of the Afro
American, said he wanted to warn the
Republican party in Maryland that
moie representation must he given to
the colored voters in the dist ihuiton
of ofllces and in the party councils, or
the parly must not expect to hold that
l>ig colored vote solidly in the future.
Hi -dd Nice’s recent defeat for tiov
oni' was largely due “•> the failure
h i ’ i Hroening admini-t rati* u in Hal
timore to recognize the .mimed vote
in official appointments.

And so the discussion (lowed on mi l
the hour waxed late Finally <*x- Guvo
nor Goldsborough got the floor and
made it stirring address, r< pmliating
any talk of his own eandidacy for
United States Senator, and appealing
for the burial of factional differences
in the interest of the election of a IT
publican Senator. He wound up with
presenting a resolution, authorizing

Remember The Horticultural iMeeting
Two outstanding features of the
meeting of the Peninsula Horticultu
ral Society in Chestertown, Maryland,
January (>. 7 and , are the buffet
luncheon to be served to the members
and visitors at Washington College at
noon on Tuesday, the opening day of
the meeting, and the moving picture
film showing orchard demonstration
work in Maryland in cooperation with
the U. S. Department of Agriculture.
This film is the first of its kind in the
world and was first shown at Hagers
town during the meeting of the Amer
ican Farmers’ Congress. This film
will he shown on Tuesday night at
Russell’s opera house.
Letters from fruit growers and
market gardeners from the Peninsula
and outside indicate that this will in
one of the best meetings in exhibits,
papers and discussion, and in attend
ance, that has ever been held. No
progressive farmer should fail to at
tend. Ample hotel accommodations
have been provided. Meals will be
served at Wa-J. College for (.7
cents and hotels and hoarding houses
can easily take care of the lodging
