TOWSON, Md. Saturday, December 20, 1902. LONGNECKER BROS., Editors and Proprietors. $1.50 per annum—in advance. Pogtat/epre paid. No gubscription taken for less than six months, MARYLAND TELEPHONE—TOWSON, Q, 121. Score another parade for Rockefeller. He has given $1,000,000 to the University of Chicago and in order that he may not lose any thing behaving done so he will proceed to add another cent or two per gallon to the price of coal oil and the people of the country will make up the million to him in short order. George W. Deems, foreman of.the Northern Central Railroad’s machineshops in Baltimore, will be retired at the end of the present year. He is 70 years of age and has held his present position thirty-eight years and has never miss ed a day, working fer tile United States a parallel case to this. John D. Rockfeller, one of the men who is helping to raise the price of coal oil almost every week, last Saturday received a check for $4,000,000, which represented his share of the standard Oil Company’s dividend for the past three months. It is said that this year the Rockefeller’s and other shareholders of Stand ard Oil will divide the lump sum of $27,000,000 between them. Comment is unnecessary. It APPEARs'to have at last leaked out that the B. & O. Railroad Company is actually dis criminating against Baltimore in the matter of supplying coal. In other words there would be no shortage of bituminous coal in the city if the railroad company would deliver the hundreds of carloads that are lyir.g on the sid ings between Cumberland; and Washington. Why this coal is not sent forward is a question that no one except the railroad people are able to answer, and they won’t. Another movement has been set on foot in Washington to change the date of inaugura tion day. A joint resolution was introduced in the House of Representatives on the 13th inst., proposing an amendment to the Consti tution of the United States providing that the term of the President shall continue until April 30th, 1905, at noon, and thereafter April 30th, at noon, shall be substituted for March 4th, as the beginning and ending of the terms of the President and Vice-President. The annual meeting of the Maryland State Grange was held in Baltimore this week. In his annual address State Master Agersaid: "Regarding the condition of the orderin Mary land I am glad to report that we are in a very much better condition than we were a year ago. There have been organized during the year eight new granges, seven being in Carroll county and one in Howard county. Four have been organized since our last meeting and several more are ready to organize." On Monday last a number of young men in Washington began boarding on a diet furnished by the Agricultural Department and designed to test the effect of food adulterants. It was the first day of the actual inclusion of borax and other preservatives in She meals which are to be furnished the young men for a long pe riod, under the direction of Chemist Wiley, of tho dopartmont. fie DeiieVes lllttl tile Jesuits will show the harmlessness of preservatives whose presence in exports of the United States has led to exclusion of such food products in a number of instances. Judge Leach, of East Hampton, Mass., died 'a few days ago from a most peculiar cause. His death was from arsenical poisoning result ing from living in rooms the wall-paper of which was highly impregnated with arsenic. A chemist who examined the paper said : “It was soaked with the poison and the dust fall ing off its surface, if inhaled by persons in the room, would be very dangerous. Constant breathing in of the arsenical atmosphere set tled in Judge Leach’s system and produced constant irritation, thereby weakening the organs slowly, but surely.” Mrs. Julia Dent Grant, widow of President Grant, died at her home in Washington, on Sunday night last, from heart disease, aged 76 years. Deceased was a daughter of Judge Dent and was born near St. Louis, Mo. She met Ulysses S. Grant while he was a cadet at the West Point Military Academy and he be came attentive to her and they were finally engaged, despite much parental opposition which continued over a period of five years. Young Grant’s persistence won in the end and the remainder of the story of their lives is generally well known. Mrs. Grant is survived by a daughter, Mrs. Sartoris, and two sons. Her remains will be placed by the side of those of her husband in the tomb on Riverside Drive, New York. The annual meeting of the Maryland Wo man’s Suffrage Club was held in Baltimore a few days ago, when officers were elected for the ensuing year as follows : President, Mrs. Mary Bentley Thomas, of Montgomery coun ty ; vice-president, Mrs. Pauline W. Holme, of Baltimore ; corresponding secretary, Miss Etta V. Maddox, of Baltimore; recordingsecretary, Mrs. Margaret S. Clarke ; treasurer, Mrs. Mary E. Moore, of Montgomery county. Before adjournment the following lists of “wants’’ was unanimously adopted: "We want wo men on the City Board of Education; women physicians on the staff of the lunatic asylums; inebriate asylums for drunkards, so as to keep them out of the insane asylums and the poor houses ; police matrons in the cities and towns of the State; women members of the county school boards and of the State Board of Edu cation ; the initiative and the referendum; more money and more members to push for ward our work; and lastely we want the Con stitution so changed that not only tax paying women, but so that all women, will count as one on election day, and have their prayers and opinions counted by the use of the little piece of paper—the ballot.” Major Alexander Shaw, one of Baltimore '-~c!tY*s~wealthiest and most highly respected citizens, died TOry suddenly from heart disease, at his home, 15 West Moc-ut Vernon Place, on Saturday evening last. He was the head of the firm of Shaw r Bros., coal dealers and mine owners, and had been to his office as usual on Saturday and exhibited no signs of illness. Major Shaw was a native of New Jersey, where he was born in 1837. When 20 years of age he went to Allegany county, Md., and began his career as a coal operator, in which business he amassed a large fortune. He was an earnest Republican and took much interest in the af fairs of his party. Major Shaw’s wife died about a year ago. They had; no children. Commenting editorially upon his worth as a man the Baltimore Sun said: “Major Shawi while a most active and energetic business man, did not confine his activities to business or money-making. He believed that he owed certain duties to the city and State as a citizen and never failed in his interest in public affairs. The last act of his life was the signing of a pa per favoring the re-election of Judge Wright to the bench. Notwithstanding his great suc cess, his wealth and his higblplaee in the bus iness world, Major Shaw was’ a man of mod est demeanor, affable and pleasant in his per sonal intercourse, and it was always a pleasure to him to oblige anyone. He was a man of generous charities'and one who will be missed in public affairs, in business’and in private life.” CHRISTMAS Once more we salute our readers on the eve of a happy Christmastide which, separated from considerations sur rounding its sacred origin and name— if any thought can sever it from them —as a season this year particularly be fitting us for a good time; a really kind, charitableland forgiving time for everyone; the only cherished time we can call to mind during the past twelve months when men and women will, we hope, be induced by one common consent, to fully and freely call an “open sesame” to their long shut-up hearts, and cast a thought to the thous ands below them, as a recognition of the truth that they really are fellow wayfarers on the broad, eventful road to the great hereafter, aud not merely creatures of the human race plodding weary journeyings along the pathway in another direction. Our Christmas is but the old Pagan yuletide thinly veiled by ecclesiastical endorsement, which teaches us of a liquid purity in the light of high Heaven. The fundamental ideas in volved in the worship of sacred trees and the mistletoe became of compre hensible primitive sancitv, even in the oldest and bloodiest stratum of savage religious thought, and was merely in corporated in that religion of peace It self which has ever marked the advent of the Founder of our Christianity. Primitive Paganism gave way, and Christmas was fixed, apparently in an arbitrary manner, when the old heathen Saturnalia was celebrated by Teuton and Celt alike. The heathen _ rv vuuitii, lurntru into the Feast of the Nativity, and yet many of the old rites, such as the wor ship of the mistletoe,the yule-log, holly berries and the Saturnalia of beef, beer and pudding, appear to have sur vived, to which has been added the Christmas-tree. The world has long since grown old and sere in being weighted down with its troubles and burdens of care, but Christmas has been, and always will be, young in the minds and hearts of a God-loving people in whose souls the jewel has always burned with lus tre as far as the silver light of Bethle hem's star which, over nineteen hun dred years ago, flashed above the moon-clad hills of Judea, where the songs of angels were heard and Divini ty bent in approving smiles to baptize a new born Messiah with the holy waters of choicest benediction. Let us remember the poor. Let us emulate the once cherished and beau tiful custom of a distant Aden in rais ing aloft a grain laden sheaf of wheat above the housetops as a resting and feeding-place for the little songsters, and not seat ourselves around the fes tive board until that blessed yule-sheaf is lifted to its place for the wild birds out in the chilling blasts of a merciless season, anon moaning around our well filled and comfortable dwelling-places, and God in his boundless mercies will give to us one and all A Happy Christ mas-time. Castro, of Venezuela, is a brutal sort of ruler who has been ruthlessly trampling on the rights of individuals and of business at large for an altogether too long length of time. He will continue to lord it over his people, like a big bully in a country school, so long as he can raise money to support his army of fol lowers. Now nothing does a coarse bully so much good as a thorough spanking, and this it is quite likely Castro will get at the hands of England and Germany. This would do him and his country a benefit. Venezuela owes Germany and England a round sum of money. It borrowed under conditions of dire necessity and with a poor reputation for credit or of honesty in paying debts. Hence, the interest rates were high. But a contract is a contract and must be held binding even if one sided. Venezuela muse pay uer dents or tuke the chances against the sheriffs of two great pow ers and their executions. At last Hon. Galusha A. Grow, of Penn sylvania, will retire to private life at the ripe old age of four score, full of honors and the respect of the people at large. He began his political life fifty years ago in most strenuous times, and bore the full burden of the day therein. He is the author of the Homestead act and so has lived to see this land grow into a mighty Union and the West an empire of happy, prosperous homes. He has lived through momentous history and helped make much of it, and now in honored old age he can look back upon his work and smile in supreme contentment at the goodly outcome of his labor. The most interesting personage in either branch of Congress these days is Hon. Joseph G. Cannon. The fact that he will be the Speaker of the next House by a practically or actually unanimous vote, and that his hands will be free in the framing of the committees, gives him an enviable position. Mr. Connon can be relied on to meet even the most favora ble expectations based on the assumption of his coming honors. He has experience, tact and balance. The Republicans of his cham ber are making a wise choice in selecting the eminent Illinoisan for their presiding officer. A most destructive fire visited the pretty town of Centerville, Md., on Sunday last. It started in a small store at 4 o’clock in the morning and before its progress was checked property to the value of about $125,000 was laid in ashes. The buildings destroyed in cluded a bank, dwellings, stores of various kinds, stables, &c. Two fire companies were sent from Wilmington and had it not been for their timely arrival the fire would have been more disastrous in its results. The insurance on the property destroyed is considerably less than SIOO,OOO. There will be no inauguration ball held in Nebraska this year. After the committee had made all arrangements for the grand affair they called on Governor Mickey to extepd an invitation when he flatly refused, saying : “I am a Methodist, gentlemen, and Methodists are opposed to dancing. lam a trustee of the Wesleyan University, and it would be as much as my good name is worth to even give my con sent to such a function, much less attend it.” Mr. James R. Edmunds, who has been con nected with the Bank of Commerce of Balti more since 1880 as cashier, has been elected vice-president of the bank. He will also con tinue to fill the position of cashier, with Mr. Magruder Powell as assistant. Mr. Edmunds connected himself with the bank in a minor position many years ago and gradually worked himself to the front. A very unusual case was tried in the Circuit Court at Frederick, Md., a few days ago. A young woman sued a former lover for $54 that she claimed to have loaned him from time to time prior to 1896, when he ceased to come to see her. The young man claimed that he had borrowed but sl9, but the jury gave a verdict to the plaintiff for $75, the full amount claimed. In sending two fleets of 3,000 men and 300 guns to collect the Venezuela bill Germany and England seem to have larger designs than they have been willing to avow. As far as the demonstration is intended for his benefit Uncle Sam is a calm but alert observer. A contemporary tries to show that Thomas B. Reed made McKinley President. Thereare many who think McKinley was sure to be President from the time he brought his inborn qualities into the world. In several large cities the schools are clos ing for lack of coal. American progress and enterprise take a back seat when it comes to the fuel question. The next Democratic candidate for Presi dent must come from a Republican state, un less he hails from Nevada, Rhode Island, Mis souri or the South. A crop of 10,000,000 bales of cotton is a big thing, but just think of its value if all was manufactured in the cotton mills of the United States. ITEMS OF GENERAL INTEREST. The board of aldermen of New York city on Tuesday.appropriated $250,000 to buy coal for the poor. Except school taxes there is no State tax levied in New Jersey other than that derived from cor porations. John Mitchell will write a book on “Capital and Labor,” to be based on the great anthracite strike in Pennsylvania. Tho bituminous coal miners contributed $2,- 000,000 to aid the striking miners. Assessments ceased on November 15th. Canada’s shipments of apples this year are over three times what they were last year ana about double what they were in 1900. This year the Harvard catalogue shows a total of 4,261 students in all departments of the uni versity, an increase of 120 over a year ago. Four crops of com are produced yearly in Cuba. The first crop is planted in December and the fourth crop is harvested in December. Frederick K. Landis, the newly elected mem ber of the Eleventh Indiana District, will be the youngest member of the next House of Repre sentatives. John S. Bilby. of Mitman, Mo., is said to be the largest individual landowner in the United States. He owns about 180,000 acres located in seven states. Ex-Secretary John D. Long has been made a member of the Mayflower Descendants. He is descended from Mary Chilton, who first set foot on Plymouth Itock. Miss Mary Andrews, of Hamilton. 0., has been installed as pastor of the First Presbyterian Church at Kansas City. She is the only woman preacher in Missouri. Col. Henry D. Capers, a brother of Gen- Edi son Capers, now Episcopal bishop of South Car olina. is the oldest living Confederate, and this is shown by his commission. The progress in the scientific treatment of beets in Germany has resulted in raising the percentage of raw sugar extracted from the root from 5 H in 1840 to 13 in 1901. In view of the scare as to the permanency of typewritten records the Italian Minister of Jus will be accepted as legal in Italy. Marion Julia and Myrtle Anna Hartney, the six-fingered and six-toed twins of Mr. and Mrs. D. W. Hartney of Chicago, arc causing much curiosity. They are two months old. Railroad men say that 70.000 homeseebers.with their families, have settled this year in Idaho. Washington and Oregon. The Canadian Pacific has carried over 100,000 people to Manitoba. A bill was introduced in the House of Repre sentatives on Tuesday making October 21st the anniversary of the discovery of America a legal public holiday, to be known as Columbus Day. Dr. Daniel Elmer Salmon, Chief of the Bu reau of Animal Industry of the Agricultural Department, has held that oflice since 1884, and has been in that Department of the Govern ment since 1879. Mrs. Margaret McCoy, who was known as the “Mother of Methodism in the West,” has just died at Omaha, Neb. Her mother, an earnest Methodist, was driven from France by thereigu of terror in Robespierre’s time. Great Britian is still the greatest tea drinking country. Tho consumption is five pounds per head of the population. In Switzerland it is estimated at one and a half pounds per head and in the United States about one pound per head. A unique feature of the wedding in Grace Church. Chicago, of Miss Cecellia Trude, daugh ter ot' Mr. and Mrs. A. S. Trude, to Mr. Harold Wilkins was the presence of the bride’s great grandfather, escorted by a great-grandson, a lad of 4. Orf Tuttle, a hunter of Eastport. Long Island, has made a new record for killing the largest number of ducks at one shot, having secured 30 at a single discharge. The ducks were closely huddled in an airhole in the ice. When he fired only a few escaped. An Indianapolis doctor is authority fora story of a family named Tinsley, whose members, as well as their ancestors, have never been able to laugh since a clergyman cursed a Tinsley for ill timed merriment at the hanging of a thief in Oliver Cromwell’s day. Out from Rock Springs, Wyo., a few miles on the road to Browns Park, a big cottonwood tree stood till a few weeks ago with an antler of an elk imbedded in the trunk. The wood had grown around the antlers and the tale of how e antler came there is lost. John Martin, of Platte county. Mo., is looking for the man who can exhibit taller corn than was raised this season on his farm. Some stalks which he recently exhibited measured 17 feet, grown from seed which he procured in Mexico, and Mr. Martin claims the belt. Upton Miller, a retired farmer, 70 years old, living at Mount Morris, 111., has made two arti cles of inlaid furniture, a bureau and a wash stand, the first containing over 8.000 pieces of wood, the other over 5,000 pieces, which he in tends to exhibit at the World’s Fair. In the past decade the Methodists in Ireland have increased 11.27 per cent., theirnumbernow being 62.000. The Roman Catholics have de clined 6.7 per cent. There are 211,031 widows in the Island, as compared to 88,034 widowers, and one widow to everv three married women. Jesse Thomas, of Wayne, Ind., prefers his handsaw to the office of local constable. He was elected by the Republicans by a large ma jority over his Democratic opponent, but he says there is more money in workingat his trade than in serving writs, and he will not qualify. The exodus of Scandinavian emigrants to the United States continues to be the greatest in 20 years. The bard times at home and the more stringent laws for the conscription of soldiers, together with the reported prosperity in Ameri ca, are responsible for the universal movement. The fruit brick is the latest form of preserve. It is rectangular or disk shaped and done up in oiled tissue paper. The consistency is that of a small gumdrop, and, being composed largely of sugar, the flavor is retained admirably. These bricks will soon be on the market from Califor nia. Col. R. H. Pratt, head of the government In dian school at Carlisle. Pa., reports that the en rolment of Indian students there this year has reached the high-water mark of 1,073. The stu dents are encouraged to earn money by hiring out during vacation, and they made nearly $32,- 00C that way last year. Two Kansas editors are in hot water about typographical errors. One of them published an elaborate theatrical notice of a performance of “Calomel” (meaning “Camille”) and the other, in an account of a wedding, characterized the bridegroom as “a gentleman of stealing quali ties” instead of “sterling qualities.” John Wood, a farmer living near the Cambria Steel Company’s plant, near Johnstown, Pa., is said to have been unusually successful in hatch ing and breeding turkeys as the result of a dis covery that the ground near the company’s waste gas pipe is always warm.and that trenches dug there made good breeding places. The weather bureau of the United States is sued a bulletin in 1900 from which one may learn that the number of lightning strokes in 1899 causing damage in the United States was 5,527; value of property destroyed, $3,016,520; number of deaths, 592; persons injured. 820; number of stock killed in fields, 4,251; value, $129,155. Thomas Twining Laing, of Rochester, who died a few days ago in his ninety-fifth year, was a picturesque character. He was a friend and admirer of Red Jacket, the famous Indian chief. It was Mr. Laing who introduced the Marquis de Lafayette to Red Jacket when the Marquis visited Buffalo during his tour of the country. Never in the history of the Central West has the demand for labor been greater nor has such a scarcity of wage-earners existed. As a result industries are suffering, in that they can not operate to capacities warranted by condi tions. Manufacturers are offering the greatest inducements to labor in the history of their operation. Chief Rogers, of the Department of Education, reports that one of the most interesting exhibits of the University of Illinois at the World’s Fair will be a dynamometer car, an invention of the mechanical department of the university. The invention measures inequalities in track sur face. A car now used by the Illinois Central Railroad is to be exhibited at the Exposition. There has recently died in Canada, in abject poverty, Samuel Napier, the man who discov ered the largest nugget of gold the world has ever seen. It. was found in Australia and meas ured two feet four inches long, 10 inches wide and two inches thick. So great was the excite ment over the discovery that Queen Victoria commanded Napier to come to Buckingham Palace, where the nugget was exhibited to her. Tho Treasury building in Washington is be ing thoroughly scoured on tho outside by order of Secretary Shaw. Every sign of age, which to most observers only added to the beauty of the building, is being removed. As one dis satisfied onlooker expressed it, “the building has begun to look like a light-colored barn in lowa. Maybe Mr. Shaw will have it painted white and nut green blinds on it, like his own house in the West.” Some original thief, without the fear of reve nue officers in his heart, got under the floor of the freight station at Lamokin, Pa., and with an auger bored a hole up through a plank. His previous superficial survey had been accurate, for the auger also went up through the end of a barrel of whisky. Inserting a tube, he drew off the liquor at his leisure. The freight agent simply found the empty barrel and the floor, each with a hole in it. Benjamin Owen, a one-legged man, is a valued member of a foot ball team in Syracuse. N. Y., playing guard. In a recent contest on the grid iron he proved himself a power in every attack, holding his opponent easily. When the ball was taken by his team down the field he went leap ing along, keeping up with the fleetest. When the other side got the ball he was right in the centre of the scrimmage. His side finally won the game by a score of 10 to 0. Mr. Elmer Pettiford. a Seventh-Day Adventist and a clerk in the office of the Auditor for the War Department, who declines to work on Sat urday, has been charged with misconduct and delinquency for not appearing, as ordered, last Saturday. The rule of the Civil Service Com mission provides that no person shall be dis missed from office because of his political or re ligious opinions or affiliations, and its applica tion to Pettiford’s case is under consideration. The village of Benton. Neb,, has decided to move. This does not mean the inhabitants alone. The buildings, houses and stores, be sides all the personal effects, will float down the Platte river for three miles. Benton was built on its present site many years ago, with the ex pectation that when a railroad came that way it would pass through the town. Finally, when it did come it was found impracticable to go near er than three miles, and as a compensation the officials of the Union Pacific road offered in ducements to the people of Benton to move. This was accepted. Too Many John Smiths. Washington tetter. A strange instance of mistaken identity in a pension case was brought to the attention of the House Committee on Invalid Pensions to day. During the last session Representative George A. Pearre, of Maryland, had passed a bill increasing from sl2 to $24 a month the pension of John Smith, who lives near Cum berland. The bill was sent to the Pension Bureau, but Mr. Smith failed to receive his money. After some months of waiting he notified Mr. Pearre. who in turn conferred with the pension officials. It was then found that in the use of Smith’s identification papers another John Smith, living in Ohio, had re ceived the money. It seems that the Pension Bureau was confused by the fact that both Smiths served in the same troop of Ohio Cav alry during the Civil War. Mr. Pearre, to correct the mistake, wanted the bill repealed, but the committee found that the John Smith of Ohio was as much in need of an increase as the John Smith of Maryland. The committee declined to repeal the bill. Col. Pearre, however, was told to introduce a second bill granting an increase to John Smith, of Maryland. He did so, and this morning the committee reported the measure favorably. Property Transfersinßaltimore County • —Deeds, Leases. Mortgages.
