—►The season for gunning accidents is near
at hand. Beware of the didn’t-know-it-was

—* Small places ranging from 10 to 25 acres,

C. Babcock' Samuel Grafflin, John Edwards,
John M. Baker and D. A. Foard.
—►People who can’t “talk politics” with
out getting excited and aDgry and making
human windmills of themselves by churning
the air with their arms, had better talk about
something else. The weather is a much more
soothing subject and adjectives of a more or less
forcible nature are then entirely unnecessary.
—►The beautiful farm known as "Mont
rose,” in the upper end of the 4th district, con
tains about 000 acres of land and has on it
fully 30,000 fruit trees of all varieties. Several
thousand bushels of peaches were raised this
year, hundreds of bushels of which went to
waste. Miss Macklin, of Baltimore, owns the
farm. .
—► We almost forgot to mention it but our
Prohibition friends are also running a Presi
dential ticket this year. What they are doing
it for is not quite plain, but it makes a little
fun for them and don’t hurt anybody. When
it is all over Mr. Bryan and Mr. Woolley will
exchange condolences and that’ll make it all
—►The ladies of St. James P.E. Church, My
Lady’s Manor, will, on election day, provide a
luncheon near the polling place in the first
precinct of the 10th district, the proceed* to
be used in the erection of a parish house near
the church. An object so commendable as
this should meet with the most liberal en
—►Mr. N. W. Steele, independent Demo
cratic candidate for Congress in this district,
spoke at a meeting in Ball’s Hall, Govanstown,
on Wednesday night. Mr. Hugh J. Gallagher
presided, and’Mr. John C. Pape was secretary.

Parkville, headed by its president, Dr. L. I.
Whiteford, attended the meeting.
—►Mr. Wm. A. Cranston, the well known
contractor and builder of Govanstown, is just
now engaged in making some extensive im
provements to “Beaumont,” the handsome
country place of Mr. William Lanahan, on

Cranston is also enlarging a dwelling for Mr.
A. A. Brown, at Charles street and Lyndhurst
—>Mr. S. E. Ringgold, who for several
years has been renting Col. B. F. Taylor’s
store at Bradshaw, Balto. <fc Ohio Railroad,
has rented, through the agency of Longnecker
Bros., the store stand of Mr. W. Evans An
derson, at White Hall, Northern Central Rail
way. Mr. Anderson, who gives up the store,
will continue in the commission business at
White Hall.
—►Voters wbo are "out for the cash”—and
we are sorry to have to admit that there are
many of them and of both colors—are now cir
culating around waiting for a chance to
“pinch” somebody. It is said of these fellows
that they take money from both sides and
then vote as they please afterwards. As an
object lesson it would be a good thing if a few
of them could be landed in the penitentiary.
—►Very little money is being put up here
on the result of the Presidential election.
Where odds have been offered they have inva
riably been on McKinley, with very few
takers. Betting on elections proves nothing
and it should be avoided. There are still left
some of those cheerful idiots who make wheel
barrow, crape on the arm, and some such
wagers, but even they appear to be fewer than
usual. . ...
—► When the gunning season opens in this
county next week people will exjierience the
same trouble as heretofore with men prowling
over their premises with guns in their hands,
shooting at almost everything with feathers
on, often endangering the lives of persons and
animals through their carelessness. Hundreds
of people throughout the county have "post
ed” their places and others should do so, as
this plan usually affords some protection.
—►Fears are expressed in some quarters
that a water famine is imminent in this section
of Maryland. The rain that has fallen this
year is far below the average precipitation, and
for several months there was a drought that
was really distressing. Since then very few
soaking rains—in fact but one or two—have
visited us and should the ground freeze up
tight before there is much more, the fear of
the expected famine may not be without foun
dation. But these things usually regulate
themselves and all may come right in its own
good time.
—►With many regrets we this week drop
x from the mail lists of The Union a name that
\ no doubt had been there fifty years—that of
Mr. Aquila Fowler, who died at his home,
near Parkville. on the 14th of September, in
\the 89th year of his age. The vacancy is filled,
so far as the subscription goes, by the name of
the son-in-law of the deceased—Mr. Wm.G.
Williughan. Mr. Fowler died on the farm
where he spent liis long life and it is a fact that
he was never fifty miles from home. He was
in all respects an exemplary and highly respec
tej citizen.
—►Several enthusiastic Towson Brvanites,
who intended to hear him speak on Tuesday
night or “bust,” adopted a novel mode to gain
their end. Placing themselves in charge of a
man who knew the janitor of the Music Hall,
they went to that place at 3 p. m. and gained
admission to the cellar. There they remained
until three minutes before 6 (at which hour the
building was to be thrown open,) when the
janitor admitted them to the main auditorium
and they took seats in the front row and held
them down for an hour and a-half before the
meeting opened.

This Also Applies to Baltimore County
With Much Force.—Dr. Bosley, Health Com
missioner of Baltimore city, will enforce (he
law requiring the privacy of funerals and the
non-exposure of bodies of those persons who
have died of diphtheria or scarlet fever, and it
would be well for the people of this county to
heed his warning. He says:
"I hope the citizens of Baltimore will con
sider this law in its humane aspect. I do not
care to thrust trouble on or add sorrow to
those afflicted by the loss of a loved one. I
would rather try to lighten the burden they al
ready have to bear. As a physician, as Health
Commissioner, however, I have seen that pub
lic opening of coffins has served to spread diph
theria and scarlet fever where either of such
diseases has caused the death. But recently
such a case came under my notice, and I have
felt obliged to direct the' health wardens to
keep a close watch on funerals in their respec
tive wards. The relatives of the dead one
should, for the sake of the living, prevent the
public funeral in such cases, and tbe relatives
of the living friends should restrain their at
tendance at such funerals in the interest of the
preservation of their own health. I cannot
too strongly urge these considerations upon the
people of this community, for I know of the
attending dangers of the violation of the law.”

the matter. He has said that thediseaseis like-
ly to make great havoc among the horses. The
J duration of the disease isshort. When stricken

as at present. Three large sea-going steam
ships, two monster sea-going dredgers, thre
torpedo-boat destroyers, a mammoth steel
barge and the largest steel drydock in th
world are under construction at the present
time; and this winter work will begin upon
two of the biggest cargo-carriers ever built in

Meeting 1 of the School Board.--The School
Board met at Towson on Wednesday, the pres
i ident, Mr. Thomas B. Todd, in the chair, and
Mr. John T. Hersbner. secretary, in the ab
! sence of Prof. Cook, who is still confined to
his house.
Messrs. Stokes, Everding and Cranston,
• trustees of the public school at Govanstown,
came before the Board and Bev. Mr. Stokes
explained why they had notified the present
principal, Mr. John jT. Thompson, to vacate
i the position at the close of the term, November
'lsth. He said that a petition had been re
ceived by the trustees asking for a reopening
i of the case, which was granted, and that a
hearing would be given the petitioners this
. week.
' Mr. Bufus K. Wood, of Sparrow’s Point,
made several suggestions in regard to the kin
dergarten school at that place, and the Board
decided to visit Sparrow’s Point next Monday.
Mr. E. W. Herman, on behalf of the citizens
of Lutherville who are asking for a new school
building, wanted to know if the Board would
i authorize a trade being made for the school
lot now owned by the Board on the York road,
near Lutherville, for what is considered a more
eligible location nearer the village. The Board
consented to such arrangement being made.
Miss Ida L. M. Held, of Towson, will re
main teacher of School 8, district 8, Chestnut
Bidge. Mr. E. B. Foard, one of the two trus
tees who signed a contract with Miss Catherine
B. Brown, said he had found that the charges
against Miss Held were erroneous and that he
withdrew his name from the order of dismissal.
Mr. Brown, of Lutherville, father of Miss
Brown, appeared at the office and said that
neither he nor his daughter desired a change
to be made under the circumstances.
Mr. Kront submitted an order to the effect
that hereafter an assistant teacher shall be ap
pointed whenever any school has an average
of 40 pupils and that an additional teacher
shall be appointed for every 40 pupils. The
order was amended and. afterward, on motion
of Mr. Wilson, was laid over until the next
meeting in order to give the Commissioners
time to ascertain the additional expenditures
in salaries should the order be adopted.
Upon the recommendation of Mr. Krout the
Board decided to establish a school at Timo
nium. It was represented that the school
would have 80 pupils and that there were 40
children in the neighborhood who did not now
' -ge to sehool. The proposition of Mr. Cher
bonnier to rent a room for school purposes at
$5 per month was accepted, and it was decided
to open the school on November 16th.
A delegation present recommended the ap
pointment of J. Bailey Logan as teacher of the
above school. The Board decided that the ap
pointment of the teacher was to be made by
tbe Commissioner of the district in which the
school is to be located. Mr. James B. Ensor
appointed Mr. Logan.
Mr. Hersbner submitted a statement show
ing that the salaries paid for the half term en
ded October 12th aggregated $20,819.22and that
the bills paid from the commencement of the
present term, September Ist, to the present
time amounted to $14,472.35.

“Feeding Cattle for Beef.”—This was the
subject discussed at the last meeting of tbe
Junior Gunpowder Agricultural Club. We
append the views of some of the members:
Mr. Charles H. Price said : “One must feed
corn to make fat, plenty of hay and an abun
dance of water. Of ground feed 15 to 16 pounds
per head per day can be given. One cent per
pound over cost price should be realized as
profit. We should feed that which will pro
duce fiesh and bone. If we commence with
the calf it should be kept fat and growing.
Let the calf stay on the cow for two weeks,
and for six weeks be fed milk and allowed to
graze some, and then put out to pasture. Early
calves get through the summer better than late
Mr. D. S. Pearce said: “It is important to
make careful selection of feeds, and to put the
feed where you can get the best results. It is
well to have a balanced ration. In feeding
calves give bran, oats and clover hay. They
will learn to eat very early if the feed is in their
reach. Give the calves all they will eat and
force them in growth.”
Mr. Benjamin M. Brooks said: “I have had
but little experience in fattening cattle. Corn
is important. Keep cattle thrifty right along.
It is said that beef can be made by feeding fod
der alone."
Mr. Calvin 1). Price said: "I think corn,
clover hay and fodder should be fed for beef.”
Mr. James B. Ensor said: “My experience
is that you must watch your cattle carefully.
Much depends on the man who feeds as to the
net profit. Mixed hay is better than clover.
Nubbins, ground corn, bran and some cotton
seed meal should be given. I put on 240
pounds in four months. One cannot fatten
a steer well under four months. The stables
should be cleaned every day. The feeding of
provender at home gives a good market price
for the produce.”
Mr. Charles H. Price said : “Stables should
be kept clean. I have kept some cattle 90 days
which did better than those kept 120 days.”
Mr. Granville Matthews said : “I know it
pays to feed cattle well. I think ground bar
ley is a good feed. I found that green corn
gave good results in feeding it.”
Mr. John B. Milessaid: “Ithinkoneshould
watch tbe cattle he is feeding and feed accord
ing to what is eaten and how it pays on the in
dividual steer.”
Uarroil uouiny uuU tlie Milk ProUucero’
Association.—A letter from Westminster
dated October 20th says: “A meeting of the
Carroll county stockholders in the United
Milk Producers’ Association of Baltimore was
held in this city this afternoon, at which A.
Y. Dolfield and Edward S. Kines, of Baltimore,
their counsel, were present and explained Mr.
Dolfield’s plan of reorganization. The plan
was generally accepted by the stockholders
and milk shippers present, most of whom
signed the releases necessary to make the plan
operative. Two releases were signed—one of
the receivers, Theo. F. Wilcox and William
B. Crowther, by which they are released from
all claims against the association, or them as
receivers, and the other of the association of a
similar nature; provided they, the stock
holders and creditors signing said release to be
paid not less than II cents per gallon for all
milk heretofore shipped to the receivers, and a
price not less than 11 cents per gallon, payable
monthly, for milk hereafter shipped; that
they shall receive second-mortgage bonds of
said association bearing 5 per cent, interest,
payable semi-annually to tbe amount of the
claims released; that the stock now held by
them shall be recognized by the reorganized
company, and that the present officers shall
-resign their offices upon such reorganization,
tbe same to be filled by election.
“A petition to the judge of Circuit Court No.
2 of Baltimore was also signed by the stock
holders present, asking for extension of the
time of hearing petitions for the appointment
of a coreceiver and also delay ordering sale of
the assets. The sentiment of those present
seemed to be decidedly and strongly in favor
of the reorganization on Mr. Dolfield’s plan.”
The court has since passed an order extend
ing the time of hearing the petitions above re
ferred to.

| week. Among other things he said:
' “I have been an independent for many
, years. lam not an office-seeker, not an office
". holder, and I would not have an office if they
9 would give it to me. lam going to ask every
one here to cast a vote for McKinley, not be
" cause you may be Republicans, but because
1 you will thus be helping the vital interests of
9 yourself, your wife ami your family. Free
■ silver is tbe danger. The Philippines are 7,000
r miles away. The trusts, if there are any
9 in Maryland, can be treated by the Maryland
r jaw. Suppose that you earn sls a week and
5 suppose that in the platform of a party they
: should say : ‘We will take $7.50 or it,’ would
you think of the Philippines then ?
“I never knew such a silly proposition as
I this free silver. You may talk about thepara
mount, issue, but that is tbe real issue. Why
t should we change ? Though they bring trusts
1 to the foreground, in the shadow there is a
3 hand stretching to your firesides to take hall
e you have.”

i Victim Don’t Live in Towson.-’Twas a
■ very old game, but it worked on Thomas J.
Batty, of Towson, says the Baltimore Sun,
- Batty met a negro on Gay street, near the
I Belair Market, Thursday afternoon. The ne
; gro engaged him in conversation, and a few
. minutes later they were joined by a second
negro. The newcomer produced some cards
, and offered to bet the first negro that he could
not name a certain card. Nogro No. 1 agreed ;
r the money was put up, Batty acting as stake
-3 holder, the cards shuffled, and negro No. 1
. won. Then Batty was asked to try his luck
and consented. Batty concluded to do the
s thing in a true sportsmanlike manner, so
L he not only bet all his money, but also his
watch and another watch which he had just
, purchased.
Negro No. 2 acted as stakeholder this time,
- and, of course, Batty lost. Then negro No. 2
f displayed a badge and said he was a detective
and would have to arrest his colored brother.
He said he did not have time to take the
e prisoner to the police station himself, but
- asked Batty to go there and tell them to send
. an officer. Batty, willing to be obliging, es
pecially as he saw a chance of getting back his
i- valuables, started for the police(station, leaving
a bundle containing some new clothes with the
•. negro “detective” for safe keeping. That’s all,
except that the police would like very much
to lay hands on the “detective” and his pris
• oner, and Batty is wondering how he will ex
fc plain the loss of goods and chattels to the
0 value of $lB.

Having Fun With the B. & L. —The Balti
more News of Thursday said: “The express
train in from Belair was half an hour late this
morning, owing to a peculiar mishap on the
Baltimore and Lehigh Railroad. The train
was on a siding waiting for a freight train to
go by. The freight had gone out from Balti
more carrying broad-gauge trucks, on which
narrow-gauge cars were to be put, up the road
and hauled to Baltimore. When near Glen-
Arm some of these trucks rolled off the cars,
struck the rails and began to roll back toward
Baltimore at a good rate. The freight backed
up and gave chase.
"It was down hill and the trucks were
speedy. The trainmen did not dare to make
very fast time with the road in the condition it
was, and the trucks, having no such handicap,
rapidly distanced tbe freight on their way
back to town. After a chase of five miles the
train caught up with the trucks as they were
making an effort to propel themselves over the
opposite hill of the Gun powder river by means
of gravity. The express train followed the
freight back toward Baltimore, and when
there was a convenient opportunity the freight
was side-tracked and the express came to town.
"The race created great excitement on the
train. Bets were freely offered that the trucks
would beat the train*to Baltimore. One com
muter jumped from the train and had bis
trousers nearly torn oflin a wire fence in bis
eagerness to see how far ahead the trucks
A Farmer Shoots Himself.—A letter from
Belair, dated October 25th, says: “George D.
Martin, a farmer residing near Laurel Brook
Station, on the Baltimore and Lehigh Rail
road, committed suicide yesterday by shooting
himself through the head with a revolver.
Tbe only cause known for his act is that he
had been in bad health for several days and
suffered with melancholia and took his life in
a fit of temporary insanity. Mr. Martin left
home with his little son to kill squirrels and
after roaming about in the woods for a short
time sent tbe boy back home and went on
alone. As the day wore on and he did not
make his appearance his wife became alarmed
and succeeded in getting three neighbors to in
stitute a search for him. After looking about
for some time they came upon his dead body
lying on the ground, about half a mile from
his home, and in the woods belonging to Mr.
Favour.” Mr. Martin moved to that neigh
borhood about two years ago from lowa, on
account of the health of his wife and children,
it is said.

Dwelling' Burned. —The frame dwelling of
Mr. Winfield S. Dampman, situated on the
west side of the York road, a short distance
above Govanstown. was destroyed by fire be
tween 4 and 5 o'clock on Tuesday morning.
Tbe inmates were awakened by the smoke and
got out safely, although much" of the contents
was burned. The loss is about SBOO. How
tbe fire originated is a mystery, but it is be
lieved to have been of incendiary origin. A
frame stable on the same property was burned
a week before and it was thought that it was
also set on fire.
This house was one of the old landmarks
along the York road between Towson and

Mr. Bryan says that the President of the

that is the reason President McKinley is such
a stickler for the full dinner pail.

BAD IN 1896—WORSE IN 1900.
Imperialism a Scarecrow—Dr. Bryan .
Bad Physician, etc.
Mr. D. Sterett Gittings, son of tbe
Richard J. Gittings, who was once State's \(H
torney of Baltimore county, in an
a few clays ago, said:
“I opposed Mr. Bryan in 1808, and 1 am
posed to him in 1900.
“If Mr. Bryan and the Chicago platform
bad in 1890, Mr. Bryan and the hyphenated
cago-Kansas City platform are doubly bad
“If the free coinage of silver at the ratio
16 to 1 was wrong in 1890, it is just as wrong
1900. miK
"If Mr. Bryan was repudiated in 1890,
the depression in all kinds of business
any change apparently a change for the
so much the more ought he to be turned
in 1900, when the country is enjoying an era
unexampled prosperity.
"When a man is sick it is natural for him
fly for relief to quack doctors and patent
cines; but when he is well, the fewer drugs
takes the better.
“Dr. Bryan felt the popular pulse in 1896,
gravely told the patient it was only a quest
of time, unless his directions were followed
the doses he alone prescribed and
were taken. :
“Prominent among his remedies was a
solution of silver in the proportion of 16 to
although all physicians the world over used
parts to 1, which was universally regarded
the standard.
“This medicine be declared to be ‘a
for all tbe ills that flesh is heir to’—it
cause the price of wheat to rise, poverty to
appear from the face of the country, and
about the millennium.
“ Unfortunately for Dr. Bryan, but to
everlasting credit of the patient, his
tion was rejected and a regular practioner—
Dr. William McKinley—called in, whose
cnce immediately restored the waning
of the sick man, inspired him with fresh
dence and gave him a new lease of life.
"One might naturally suppose that the treat-■
ment accorded him would have deterred Dr.H
Bryan from making another attempt. But no 1 ■
Here he is again, with the same old compound, H
in a dust-covered bottle, although ho calls it by ■
a more high-sounding name—Anti-Imperialism ! ■
“Now, the question of Imperialism, in myl
judgment, is merely a scarecrow erected by Mr. H
Bryan and his fellow Populists to conceal the ■
real issue, which is ‘the free and unlimited coin
age of silver by the United States alone at tbe ■
fixed ratio of 10 to 1, without or consent ■
of any other nation’—a feat comparetjjp which
that of Atlas was merely child’s play.
“Can any sane man believe tbe silver-mine ■
owners regard Imperialism as the paramount ■
issue, or that they will permit Mr. Bryan to for- ■
get his promises that ‘the gold standard will not ■
be maintained in this country longer than I am ■
able to get rid of It?’
"Mr. Bryan here said what he meant, and ■
meant what ho said ; and as I, for one, believe ■
‘the gold standard to be a good thing,’ I intend ■
to ‘push it along’ as far as I am able, and to heed ■
Mr. Bryan’s warning by casting my vote for ■
Mr. McKinley.”
“The Sun” and the Race Question.
The Baltimore News, in an editorial headed ■
"Jekyli-and-Hyde Journalism,” says: * * * ■
“The Sun is evidently trying once more, as ■
has tried before, to inject the race question into ■
the campaign. It is seeking to make a sensa- H
tional point out of Governor Roosevelt’s advo- ■
cacy and signature of a bill for securing the ■
right of colored children to attend the public ■
schools of New York. That right exists in ■
many, probably most, of the States of the North I
and West. The Sun knows that it has not only ■
no bearing, even the most indirect, on our home ■
affairs. Maryland will, in the future, as in the ■
past, regulato that matter for herself; and New ■
York, and Massaehusetts, and Ohio, will keep ■
on doing the like for themselves. The only ■
possible object of dragging it into the cam- ■
paign is to stir up ill will, add through this "so- ■
lidify” the Democratic vote. The means which ■
the Sun thus seeks to apply is precisely the ■
means by which the old Democratic ring, with ■
the aid of the Sun, maintained its corrupt hold ■
on the government of the city. For a year or ■
two the Sun lapsed into virtue and, when it ■
wanted to beat Gorman, pooh-poohed the “negro ■
bugaboo” as lustily as heart could desire; now ■
it is hankering after that same bugaboo as a I
means of driving thoughtless voters into the I
Bryan ranks. But it will find that the charm I
won’t work. That game has been played out. I:
It is true that occasions may arise—unfortu- I
nately—when, in local elections, the appeal to I
race feeling may be successfully made; but tbe I
attempt to utilize it in a national election upon I
which it has absolutely no bearing, will be a flat I
failure. And the Sun may rest assured that its I
intelligent readers have long ago formed the I
habit of judging of the lofty pretensions it sets I
up in the character of Dr. Jekyll by tbe mean I
and dishonest practices to which it continually I
resorts in that far more conspicuous activity I
which is presided over by Mr. Hyde.”
Predictions That Were "Way Off.” I
Just before tbe Presidential election four I
years ago the Democratic National Committee, J,
with Senator Jones then, as now, at its head, I
gave out a statement as to the result of the I
election, based, as it said, on “carefully col- I
lected information of the most reliable ctiarac- I
ter,” in which everything insight was “claimed’’ I
for Bryan. The actual results are here printed I
with the Democratic estimates for comparison : I
“Illinois will give Bryan at least 30.000 plurali- I
ty.” (McKinley’s plurality in Illinois was over I
140,000.)’ , ■
"Bryan will carry Michigan by not less than I
36,000.” (McKinley’s plurality in Michigan was I
over 66,000.) n
“Minneßotawillgiveßryan2s,ooo.” (Minnesota I
gave McKinley over 55,000.)
"In New York Bryan will have 50,000.” (Mo- I:,
Kiuley carried New York by over 260,000.)
"There will be a sweeping Democratic victory I
in Indiana.” (McKinley carried Indiana by over 1'
“Bryan will carry lowa by a largo
(McKinley carried lowa by 65,000.)
“Bryan’s plurality in California will be over I
25,000.” (McKinley carried California by 1,922 ■
P '“No*rth Dakota will bo for Bryan by 3,000.” I
(McKinley carried North Dakota by over 5,000.)
“Bryan will be 40,000 votes ahead in Ken
tucky.” (McKinley carried Kentucky by a
small plurality.) .....
“Democrats are hopeful in Connecticut, though
Republicans are full of bluff and bluster. A
decided surprise awaits the Republicans in this
State.” (McKinley was 54,000 votes ahead in
Connecticut.) „ ,
Democratic advance estimates of election re
sults are just as accurate and valuable now as
they were four years ago.
How the Archbishop Will Vote.
An Associated Press dispatch from Now York,
dated October 20th, says that "Archbishop Ire
land, of the Roman Catholic Church, today
gave out the following personal statement as to
his attitude in the present campaign:
“How do I intend to vote ? It cannot at first
sight but seem more or Icbs impertinent for any
citizen to tell the public how he intends to vote.
In voting each citizen obeys ttao dictates of his
own sense of civic' duty ; he should simply do
this and leave to others to do likewise.
“However, since a certain number of news
papers have undertaken to say how I intend to
vote, and in so doing have misinterpreted my
intention and have not been unwilling to make
political capital out of my supposed vote, I will
give to the question (how I intend to vote) a
categorical and unmistakable reply—l intend to
vote for William McKinley and Theodore
“In giving my vote for tbe candidates of the
Republican party I um satisfied in my own con
science that I serve the best Interests of tbe
country at home and abroad; that I contribute
to the maintenance of the country’s material
prosperity and of peace and good will between
tbe several classes of its population.
"That I aid the country in bringing about the
safest and most honorable solutions of the
complex problems which confront it as the re
sult of the late war, and in retaining for itself
the exalted position which it holds at present
commercially and diplomatically before the
world. .. . .
“I trust no further doubts will t)0 expressed
as to how I intend to vote.”
The Outlook In Maryland.
In an interview a few days ago Hon. Phillips
Lee Goldsborough, chairman of the Republican
State Central Committee of Maryland, said:
“My Judgment is that Maryland will give its
electoral vote to McKinley and Roosevelt. I
base this statement upon the following facts:
"First—The State is a sound money State, and
its citizens view with alarm any effort or move
ment to break down the financial policy as ad
vocated and maintained by the Republican
“Second—The peoulo of the State have been J
most prosperous—the business roan, the me
chanic and the farmer alike—and they are un
willing to see the existing conditions changed.
“Third—The Republican party is thoroughly
united and well organized in every section of <
— The Democratic Sound Money
League of Maryland as organized is a strong
factor in the politics of this State, and it is do-
ing most effective and successful work in be
half of the Republican ticket,
l "Fifth—ln Baltimore city the large registra
tion means, as we know, that the Republicans
have a decided ad vantage. This is always the
, case when the registration is heavy, and we
know that tho Republican vote is registered al
most to a man. while we know with equal posi
tiveness, that the Democrats are not in such
, good sliape.”
Some Facts About Trusts.
• Boston Herald, lnd. Bern.
The Bryan party has talked so much about
the enormous growth of trusts during tho Mc-
Kinley Administration that some persons may
t be in danger of believing that, up to tho
date of McKinley’s inauguration, there were
few such combinations in existence, and these
i but feeble examples. The truth is that most
. of the great and successful organizations of
9 this kind antedate the present Republican Ad
ministration. Tho Standard Oil Company dates
from 1882, the dressed beef combination from
s 1885, the American Tobacco Company from flaw,
the American Sugar Refining Company and the
National Tube Company from 1881, the National
■ Wallpaper Company and the Consolidated Steel
* and Wire Company from 1892, the United States
Leather Company from 1893. and so on. The
Chicago Inter-Ocean gives a list that is not com
plete, but numbers 99 trusts, having now an ag
gregate capitalization of $2,374,232,780, accord
ing to latest obtainable figures, that were or
ganized before 1898. The capital of these is
- two-thirds of tho total net capitalization of all
i industrial combinations since 1860. according to
the year book of the New York Journal of Coin
-1 merce. Democrats are making more political
“ capital out of this subject than the facts or

9 * Surviving Presidential Candidates.
1 Hew York Sun.
In the four successive Presidential elections
r of 1888, 1892,1896 and 1900 there were only two
r candidates of each party and tho defeated
nominees of 1888 and 1892, Cleveland and Harri
son. respectively, are the two surviving I resl
dents. A surviving Presidential candidate, who
has a somewhat complex record as sued, is
v James B. Weaver of lowa. Twenty years ago
' he ran for President of the United Stateson

4 000 votes, and twelve years afterward he ran as
