A juryman was struck from the list of tales men in the Baltimore Criminal Court the other day because he said he didn’t believe in con victing anybody for anything. A nice man to summon as a juror. Sitting Bull, the wretched old Indian who has been the cause of the death of so many in* nocent people, has at last met his fate. He was killed in an engagement with United States troops on Monday. "m t-T.-r.unrrrT.n t ‘punty Sant,“at Clearfield, Pa., of which ex-United States Senator William A. Wallace is president, failed on Tuesday. The liabilities are stated to be $350,000 and the assets $650,000. Mr. Wallace is the principal owner of the bank. The Court of Appeals of Maryland, in the case of the Clerk of the Circuit Court of Prince George’s county against the Prince George’s County Abstract Company, has decided that the Abstract Company was not entitled to have free access to the records of the court. All the Methodist churches in Baltimore city have voted on the subject of sending wo man delegates to the General Conference and the result shows a majority of Gl6 votes against it. The total vote cast was only 2,314, which cannot be taken as a fair test of the question. The third party movement, which origina ted at the National convention of the Farmers’ Alliance, has taken definate shape and a call has been issued for a convention to be held in Cincinnati, Monday, February 23d, 1891, for the purpose of forming anational union party. The New York Sun, a Democratic newspaper that rarely has anything good to say of Repub licans or the Republican party, candidly ac knowledges that the present administration “is the cleanest since James Buchanan and Abraham Lincoln. No public scandal blurs its record.” The Farmers’ Alliance of Kansas has deter mined to go into the fight for United States Senator on its own account, disregarding both the Republicans and Democrats. There are a large number of Alliance candidates in the field and this may imperil their chances of securing a Senator. Ex-Congressman John A. Hiestand died in Lancaster, Pa., on the 13th instant, aged sixty years. For over thirty years he was editor and proprietor of the Lancaster Examiner. He had also been a member of the Legislature and State Senator and was Naval Officer at the port of Philadelphia, holding the latter position for eight years. The office of Register of Wills of Philadel phia is a very snug little billet. It is said that the present register, who will soon retire at the end of his three-year term, will have made a clean SIOO,OOO, the principal part of which comes from the collection of collateral inheri tance tax. His commissions in one estate alone In his address before the State Grange last week Dr. Jas. Cheston, of A. Arundel county, advised the members to vote for the best inter ests of farmers,and send men to the Legislature who would attend to their wants. We have noticed that Grangers are Grangers every day in the year except election day. Then they are either Democrats, Republicans or Prohibition ists. We congratulate Messrs. Baughman Bros., editors and proprietors of the Republican Citizen. published at Frederick, Md., upon the greatly improved appearance of their paper. It has been enlarged to eight pages and with its new dress of type and other improvements gives evidence of prosperity that is very gratifying to their friends. Col. L. Victor Baughman, a member of this enterprising firm, is the Comp troller of the State. In denouncing a manifestly unjust verdict a few days ago Judge Stewart, of the Baltimore Criminal Court, said: “I hope that hereafter we will be a able to get some jurors who will be guided by tbe evidence and not by their feelings.” Our opinion is if the courts would get more jurors who have a little sense, instead of a lot of luuk-beads who are put on as a re ward for political services, there would be fewer verdicts to be denounced. This is the cause of all the trouble. With its issue of Saturday last the Baltimore American sent out as a supplement a splendid map of Maryland, showing off the industries and advantages of the State in most attractive, comprehensive and interesting form. It is a most creditable production and cannot help but advance the State's interests. The American is a great newspaper and this map is only another evidence of its growing popularity and impor tance. We congratulate Gen. Agnus upon his successful management. This monkeying with the Indians on the part of the Government appears more like child’s play than anything else. First the authorities arm the reds—or permit them to arm themselves—with the most improved ri fles and other death-dealing weapons, and then the Government appoints a lot of thieving agents to furnish supplies to its wards. Instead of feeding the Indians these agents rob them in every way possible, even to the verge of starvation. Is it any wonder they want to fight when they are driven to it by these scamps? Anybody would fight under similar circum stances. If the Government wants to do the right thing let it hang about a half hundred of its present Indian agents and then endeavor to find some honest men to take their places. A few days ago two men were tried in the Baltimore Criminal Court on the charge of running a gambling house. The evidence was dead against thim—in fact there was no evi dence whatever for the defense—yet the jury returned a verdict of “not guilty.” Judge Stewart, who presided, was highly indignant at the verdict and denounced it from the bench in unmeasured terms, saying “this verdict is a most disgraceful one.” The Judge deserves the highest commendation for his manly stand in this instance. People are coming to look upon trial by jury as a mere farce and unless the courts take a decided stand and check the rapidly growing evil, very soon all respect for them will have vanished. Not a man who served on that jury should ever be permitted to disgrace the box again. Col. D. M. Matthews, of Dulany's Valley, who for six years served so faithfully as presi dent of the Baltimore County Agricultural Society, declined to accept the office for an other year and his successor was elected on the 13th instant. Col. Matthews devoted a great deal of his valuable time to the affairs of the society, and this necessarily interfered with his extensive farming operations. The Board ac cepted his resignation with much regret and adopted a unanimous vote of thanks to him for his valuable services to the society. Mr. D. H. Rice, who succeeds Col. Matthews as presi dent, is an active and successful business man, possessing peculiar fitness for the position. He owns and gives his personal attention to one of the largest stock farms in the county and is meeting with deserved success in the raising of standard bred horses and Holstein-Friesian cattle. We have no doubt the society will flourish under his guidance. Conespondenceßaltimore County Union. LETTER FROM BALTIMORE. Improvements in the Management of the Peabody—Crowds of Christmas Shop pers—Some Unique Displays ln the Social Whirl—Precautions Against Fire—The New U. S. Navy Calendars. Baltimore, December 18th, 1890. Messrs. Editors:— ln conversation with one of the most prominent members of the Peabody In stitute, one of the younger trustees, I was grati fied to find that with the death of Mr. Nathaniel H. Morison, the late provost, there is likely to be a more liberal policy established than has pre vailed for so many years under his rigid and tvrannical rule. I nstead of being now the grand institution which Mr. Peabody designed that it should be, it had become one of the most unpop ular and indeed hateful public corporations in the land. Students and scholars were driven away in scores or made to feel uncomfortable under Mr. Morison’s iron sway. He did precise ly as he pleased, asked and received no advice, and governed the establishment as arbitrarily as if it had been his own property. He was utterly opposed to any suggestion to make the institu tion more popular, and fought out to the bitter end the greatly desired change of keeping the reading-room open until ten o’clock at night in stead of closing it at nine as is now the case. Quite too long has old fogyism ruled the Insti tute, from the president down, and as Mr. Charles Baton, the aged head of it, will not probably long survive, with his death added to Morison’s there will bo some hope that the younger trustees shall have a voice in the administration of affairs which they have hitherto never been allowed to One very important change should be effected. The librarian proper should be more indepen dent of the provost and have additional discre tionary power. Mr. Uhler has been an excellent officer and for twenty-five years a most faithful as well as intelligent librarian, but he has been sat upon and fiattened down by Morison, as in deed everybody else was in the building. As an executive officer to manage the general affairs of the Institute the provostship could well be made separate from the main charge of the library, and the two could much better work together in harmony. No wonder that the number of readers annually diminished, as stated in the yearly re ports, and visitors in the evening sometimes found only five or six persons in the reading-room instead of the sixty that should have been there, ana indeed on several occasions tb® assistant librarians were confronted with a single reader. The fine weather contributes to crowd the streets with Christmas shoppers and all the business avenues are so thronged that to pass through the multitude is like swimming in mo lasses. All the windows wear their most attrac tive aspect and in some of them the manner of arranging the goods for show displays much originality and artistic taste. One on Lexington street exhibits a symphony in yellow that would do credit to Whistler. Another shows a pretty live pony and cart, while a pumpkin is set up in a separate window. Any one guessing the exact number of seeds in the pumpkin will receive a free excursion ticket to Europe and return. A very safe offer by the way, as there is about one chance in one hundred millions of a correct The' fashionable germans at Lehman’s Hall have been so far this season more popular than ever and several of them have long lists of peo ple of the highest social position who cannot now be admitted, owing to the very full ranks of older members. Many very pretty debutantes have appeared this winter and ladies’ teas are all the rage. The gentlemen revenge themselves at their clubs, but one cf them, the “University.” is more magnanimous and at stated periods holds very elegant soirees, at which ladies are wel come. As a consequence it is much more in favor with the women than the exclusively mas culine dens which are styled “just horrid.” It combines an artistic and literary tone with other social advantages, as a number of noted artists and Johns Hopkins professors belong to it. The bat poudre of fashionable circles is now exercising the minds of the young ladies and nearly all the tickets have been sold. Even Ward McAlister would probably style all its participants as truly “bongtong.” Bv the way, Ward has been con gratulated on the success of his book as well as sneered at. and the noted Kate Field has come forward and pronounced him no snob. At this festive season when so many church gatherings are enlivened by tableaux, &c., in which young ladies take part, the greatest pre cautions should be taken against tire. Several dreadful and fatal accidents have lately taken place in this city and elsewhere when the light gauze dresses worn by young women have taken tire. At all such exhibitions chemicals should be at hand for instantaneous use, the gasses from them at once extinguishing the flames. A few years ago I witnessed myself at a Sunday school festival the benefit of such a salvage corps. A young gentleman arrayed as a bishop of the olden time, with a profusion of light laces, was set on tire by the blaze of a candle, but be fore the least damage was done to his person or any panic was excited among the children the tire was put out by the ready chemicals and the play went on as if nothing had happened. Our new naw is growing apace and in a year or two will present formidable proportions. How utterly the naval service has been revolutionized since the memorable battle of the Monitor and the Merrimac in Hampton Roads can be appre ciated by a glance at a modern iron-clad, at best a grim, ugly monster compared with the magnifi cent aspect of a line of battle-ship, tier above tier of bristling guns in long lines and overhead the mighty masts and yards spreading their snowy canvas. In a few years more even the hulks of these old cruisers will be as much out of existence as England’s “Great Harry." There is very little comfort in the modern ships, the huge guns and machinery for workingthem, as well as the powerful engines for driving the vessels taking up so much space that officers and men alike are cramped for room. The next war be tween maritime powers will be regarded with in tense interest as far as sea fighting is concerned, and decisive battles will in; lost and won even in a shorter time than that of the Wasp and Frolic In the war of 1812. The various insurance companies are now issuing their new calendars for 1891 and many are so eager to get them that they can hardly tolerate the old ones of ’9O. This has been a year memorable for its disasters by sea and land and its commercial embarrassments, but if we cannot wish it back who can prophecy that the next year will be a happier one ! Walpole. The fine residence of Senator Gorman, near Laurel, Prince George’s county, was totally des troyed by fire, with its contents, during the heavy storm of Tuesday night last. The only occupants of the house at the time were Mrs. Gorman and one of her daughters, who came on from Washington the day before to look after some domestic affairs, and two colored servants. The tire started in the kitchen and was discovered by one of the servants who slept in the room above. He alarmed the ladies and they made a hasty exit in their night clothes, the flames spreading so rapidly that they did not have time to dress. They made their way to the farmer’s house, where they found shelter for the balance of the night. The loss on the house and contents is about $15,000, and the only insurance is a policy for $6,000 in the Montgomery Mutual Company. The Senator’s valuable library was entirely con sumed. The outlook in some sections of Kansas must be gloomy indeed. In an interview at Atchison a few days ago a citizen of Rooks county, in that State, said: “The people of the western part of the State no longer try to con ceal the fact that many people have left the country on account of the drought. Over 4,000 people have left Rooks county alone. Many of those remaining are unable to get away. For miles over the prairies one can see nothing but tenantless houses and abandoned farm machinery.” A charter has been granted to the Western Maryland R. R. Company for an extension of its road from Gettysburg to a point on the Philadelphia, Harrisburg and Pittsburg R. R., near Harrisburg. The latter is the road owned by the Philadelphia and Reading Railroad and the new line will afford the Philadelphia and Reading another route to Baltimore, and at the same time give the Western Maryland a direct line to Harrisburg from Baltimore. Probably the oldest married couple in the United States is Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Salisbury, who live in Minnesota. He celebrated his 103 d birthday on the 14th instant, and she will be 101 years old on Christmas day. If they live until January 12th, 1891, they will cele brate the eightieth anniversary of their mar riage. They enjoy good health and retain their faculties to a remarkable degree. In 1825, says Harper's Bazar , there were said to be but five millionaires in the United States. These were John Jacob Astor and Stephen Whitney, of New York; William Gray, of Boston; Stephen Girard, of Philadelphia; and Nicholas Longworth, of Cincinnati. Of these men, two were foreigners—Astor and Girard. There are now more than five hundred million aires in New York alone. A recent statement made by the Agricultur al Department shows that the average price of corn is higher now than it has been since 1881. Last year the average price was 28 cents per bushel, while now it is 50 cents. Wheat has increased from 69 cents to 84 cents, while a like advance is shown in rye, oats and buck wheat. Farmers should find some encourage ment in these figures. Commencing on Wednesday, December 24th, 1890, and continuing until January Ist, 1891, inclusive, the Western Maryland Railroad will sell Holiday Excursion Tickets between all stations at the low rate of 2 cents per mile, the minimum rate being 15 cents. These excur sion tickets will be good on regular trains,’and valid to return until January sth, 1891, inclu sive. At a sale of relics in Philadelphia a few days ago U. S. Senator Hearst paid SI,OOO for a letter written by Washington to Gen. Henry Lee, dated October 20th, 1780, giving instructions about the taking of the traitor Arnold. The same purchaser also secured for SBOO a letter written by Benjamin Franklin, dated August 27th, 1745, to his friend James Reed. Henry C. Noble, a prominent lawyer of Columbus, Ohio, and brother of Hon. John \V. Noble, Secretary of the Interior, died on the 12th instant. Correspondence Baltimore County Union. LETTER FROM WASHINGTON. The Contest Over the Election and Silver Coinage Bills —The Defeat of Wade Hampton—What it May Mean— The Holiday Season —Mary- land Republican Associa tion—The Ward Mur der Trial, etc. Washington, D. C., Dec. 16th, 1890. Editors Union : —The Federal Elections bill still drags its weary length along in the Senate. Mr. Hoar had hoped to bring the discussion to a close and get a vote on the bill last Friday. But the prospects for this are now no brighter and oven not so bright as they wore then. There are a certain number of Western Republicans in the Senate who are clamorously in favor of the free and unlimited coinage of silver, and they are much more interested and anxious to get legis lation of that kind than they are to have the Elections bill passed. With the Democrats who are opposed to this bill and all or nearly all in favor of the free coinage of silver, it is believed that these “silverites” are in a majority in the Senate. Ever since the session of Congress be gan and the Elections bill has been before the Senate the silver Republican Senators have been very restless and becoming more so every day, wanting the Elections bill disposed of in some way that they might get at their hobby, silver legislation. But the Democrats insisted on dis cussing the Elections bill, thereby prolongingits stay before the Senate. Last week the free coin age Republicans had become so impatient that rumors were rife that if the Elections bill was not got out of the way they would soon join with the Democrats to lay it aside and take up the de sired financial legislation. The great money stringency throughout the country, that is caus ing so many failures among the banks and large business houses, becoming urgent, favors this project, and so the Republican majority was bound to take notice of it. They therefore called a caucus last night to consider financial legisla tion. Of course, with the few exceptions alluded to above, they would not favor the unlimited coinage of silver, which they consider dangerous to the best interests of the country by unduly inflating the currency, yet they recognize the necessity of doing something to relieve the mone tary stringency. Two propositions were readily agreed upoiqm the caucus, one being to purchase the surplus silver in the countrv over and above the month ly coinage of already provided for by law, which amounts to about $13,000,000, and the other to substitute silver for retired national bank circulation, which is to be retired to its lowest limit of SI,OOO. Yet this compromise will hardly satisfy the silver advocates, even if it re lieves the money pressure, and. knowing this, another caucus was called for to-night. But the calling of the caucus postponed the attempt at laying aside of the Elections bill in order to se cure the consideration of silver or financial legis lation, and during yesterday and to-day the dis cussion of the Elections bill has gone on. What will now be the fate of the bill is entirely prob lematical and there are plenty of people ready to say that it will never pass the Senate and be come a law, because there are enough Republi can Senators opposed to it to join with the Dem ocrats and accomplish its defeat. Many pangs were sent through Democratic hearts in this city—as well as in South Carolina —last week by the failure of Wade Hampton to be re-elected to the Senate and the clectiou of the Farmers’ Alliance candidate in his stead. Wade Hampton is one of the brightest lights among the Democracy in the South and is looked upon as one of the best representatives of the chivalry of that section. Therefore he is revered somewhat after the manner of a minor deity or a most superior personage, and the worshippers at that shrine held in such veneration in the sunny land south of us, but cared so little for in the cold and practical North, cling to him as would an Ephraim to his idol. Hence so many tears in the house of their mourning here. The event, so unexpected, was not only shocking to the Democrats but it revealed to them something more to follow. It taught them the fact that their favorite could bedefeated and that no more reliance could be put in a “Solid South” if this farmers’ movement is*to keep on. What may it not accomplish and who may it not defeat in two years from now ? While Republican Congress men and Republican state orticials were falling before it on the 4th of last month. Democrats laughed and thought it was just the thing to wipe out the Republican party in the next Presiden tial election. But when it strikes down their favored one and rides rough-shod over the chiv alry of their beloved South they laugh no more but weep bitter tears and quake with fear. All eyes here now are being turned towards Christmas. The stores are all fully stocked with holiday goods and the people are looking around to see what they shall buy for presents. In the departments the employees are all giving about two thoughts to the holidays while they give one to their duties. During holiday week, beginning the dav before Christmas, when ail the depart ment clerks and other employees will be paid off in full for the month, the offices will be closed probably half of each day, as has been recently the custom—they used to be closed the whole week—except on Christmas and New Yeur’sdays, when they will be closed all day. The Maryland State Republican Association of this District elected officers last week for the ensuing year, as follows: Thomas D. Bond, pres ident; Charles Forest, vice-president; Adolph Van Reuth, recording secretary; Joseph Trainer, corresponding secretary; W. H. Main, financial secretary ; J. A. McCauley, treasurer, and J. 11. Bartschers. sergeant-at-arms. Also an execu tive committee, consisting of a representative for each of the Congressional districts in the State. The trial of Frank Ward far the killing of Maurice Adler in the marble saloon, corner of 9th street and Louisiana avenue, N. W., June 18, 1889, commenced in the Criminal Court here to day. 11 promises to attract the greatest interest, as Ward was one of the best known citizens here. He, a few years, entirely revolutionized the milk business of this city, putting it on a most royal scale, his richly polished wagons being seen in all parts of tbe city and his handsome business 81 heiner *he niirriration of evprvliody. Money owed into his coffers most abundantly, which he spent around town lavishly and in a royal manner. But his failing was fondness for drink which finally brought him to his present bad state. No man ever had more devoted friends, many of whom still cling to him. Mr. Charles Alderson, a well-known citizen of Harford county, Md., who conducts a publishing agency here, met with a most painful and serious accident on last Sunday a-week. He was riding a bicycle, which he had not as yet become accus tomed to, and fell from it, twisting the ankle joint and breaking one of its bones. He is con fined to his bed. In addition to this misfortune Mrs. Alderson received word last week of the death of her sister, Mrs. Hopkins, of Harford county. Uno. The “gold fever” has broken out in Lati mer township, Adams county, Pa., and a com pany of capitalists has beer, formed to mine for the precious metal. The company has re opened an old drift, dug many years ago, and it is said the indications are that the under taking will prove profitable. Up to the present time the receipts for liquor licenses in Baltimore city, under the new high license law, amount to $527,971.75. The city’s proportion of this sum is $395,978.81, and the State’s $131,992.94. There were 2,415 applica tions for license, 2,084 of which were granted by the commission. Potatoes are high this winter and they will be still higher before spring. A Kansas man who made a fortune off his crop was asked how he grew them so successfully. He replied: “I planted them and then I ’tendedjthem.” The “tendin’’ part is the secret of success in every . thing. The State Grange of Delaware, at its recent meeting, took decided ground against the Farmers’ Alliance party. They say they do not believe that it could be successfully formed or long perpetuated, because its conception would seem both unpatriotic and selfish. That very disagreeable complaint called “la grippe” has again attacked the people of New Orleans, due to the unusually sudden and vio lent changes of temperature. The health au thorities say that between twenty and thirty thousand people are afflicted with it. Mr. C. H. Hoffman, of Lancaster county, Pa., raised the past season 2,100 bushels of marketable potatoes on . thirteen acres of ground. He sold all except 700 bushels at 65 cents per bushel. Those left he will hold until the price goes up to $1.25. Mr. Henry D. Schmidt, the well-known carriage dealer, located on N orth Liberty street, Baltimore, made an assignment on Tuesday to W. Burns Trundle, Esq., trustee. His assets are stated to be $12,500 and his liabilities about $25,000. Thirty-two inches of snow fell in some sec tions of Virginia on Wednesday last. A vast deal of damage was done in some of the towns by the crushing in of roofs and wrecking of buildings. The storm was general all over the country. Mr. Henry Wirt, a prominent citizen of Hanover, Pa., died a few days ago at an ad vanced age. He had been connected with many public institutions and was widely known and highly respected. The official count of the late censes makes the population of Maryland 1,042,390, an in crease of 107,447 since 1880, or 11.49 per cent. The total population of the United States is 62,622,250. The people of St. Paul, Minn., have aban doned the idea of having a carnival and ice palace this winter, owing to the mildness of the weather. Ex-Mayor Latuohb, of Baltimore, is named as being among those who are candidates for the Democratic nomination for Governor. The Supreme Court of Kentucky lias decided that money lost at draw poker can be recovered from the winner. Holiday Excursion Tickets on the Penn sylvania Railroad. In pursuance of the usual custom the Penn sylvania Railroad Company announces that Christmas and New York excursion tickets will be sold between all principal stations on its system at two cents per mile, except be tween Philadelphia and New York and certain other stations on the United Railroads of New Jersey Division, where the regular excursion rate and limit will prevail. The tickets will be sold December 24th, 1890, to January Ist, 1891, valid for return passage until January sth, 1891, inclusive. y . &§?fglit f|sss OO -!I I * I * OO la. ! a 2' Si “ : : :*s : : : j : .1 : ‘ L 2 a mu 12 3 4 4 5 0 7 8 910 ! 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 12 13 14 16 16 17 18 18 19 20 21 22,23 24 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 26 27 28 29 30 31 ..

The Maryland Journal in its issue of Novem ber 29th, contained a local item to the effect that a bill had been filed in the Circuit Court for Baltimore County, to have this Company placed in the hands of a Receiver because of its insol vent condition, and to the further effect that its work had proved a failure. Some of the officers of the Company being much surprised by the publication, no such suit having been instituted and the charges made being wholly untrue, in vestigated the origin of the report, and found that it was furnished the above paper by a member of the Company who has been secretly working against its interests for sometime, though in its paid employ. On the 10th of December, 1890, nearly two weeks after the above publication, W. Frank Mitchell, the retained counsel of the Company, filed a bill in the above Court, pretending to represent Joseph E. Tracey, and John J. Myer, the assignee of said Mitchell, alleging the insol vency of the Company and asking for the ap pointment of a receiver. It is due Mr. Tracey, who is a stockholder, to say that ho has denied in writing that he ever employed Mr. Mitchell or authorized him to file any such bill on his bohalf. The only complainant in fact is one John J. Myer, to whom the said Mitchell, on the 9th day of December, assigned a pretended claim which he held against tho Company for attorney’s fees, amounting to $160.97. Included in the bill is a charge of $74.97 retaining fee as counsel to the Company. This is one of the most remarkable suits ever known, and the po sition of Mitchell a novel one. The Company has upon its books a claim for hedge planting dono for Mitchell, never paid, and also holds his overdue notes amounting to $178.08 with interest, still unpaid. Tho pre tended claim of Mitchell is the only outstand ing and unsettled claim against the Company and as to the charge of insolvency, the Compa ny has valid, tangible and available assets of over eight thousand five hundred dollars, and the Company is most anxious to show tho utter falsity of every charge contained in the bill filed in the above mentioned case, and to expose the baseness of the motives which prompted the publication of the charges made through tho columns of the Journal , and in tho bill of com plaint above mentioned. The Company has now employed reliable coun sel to represent its interests and will insist upon the earliest trial of the above ease consistent with a thorough investigation of every charge made.
