TOWBON. Md. * Saturday, - January 10,1909. LONONECKER BROS..Editors and Proprietors sl. SOper annum — inadvanee. Pottage pre paid. No subscriptiontaken for lets than tin month* ■ JSTC. St V. FHOHE—TOWSON 211JS Secretary op Agriculture Wilson, who con trols the food and drink of the country, is called a czar. Compared to Secretary Wilson, the speaker of the House of Representatives is a mere pygmy in power. A paymaster who used to cross a Nevada desert in a wagon with a large armed guard, now makes the trip in an automobile that covers the fifty miles in one hour, under the protection of a single shotgun. The speed defies pursuit on horseback in an open country. Hon. Theodore E. Burton, member of Con gress from Ohio, was this week elected to the United States Senate to succeed Senator Joseph B. Foraker. President elect Taft’s brother Charles, who was early in the fight for the Sen atorsbip, withdrew before the contest got hot int be Legislature. Last year, by the official report, 50,676 pen sioners died, of whom 34,333 served in the Civil War. The highest number of pensioners on the rolls in 1908 was 1,006,053. of whom only half were soldiers or sailors in the war of the rebellion. Widows form a large part of the list and the amount they receive was re cently increased one-half. There seems to be a good prospect for Balti more city getting a supply of natural gas, and this through the Standard Oil Company. It is said that the gas will be piped from the Park ersburg region of West Virginia and that the supply can be available in less than sixty days. The price will likely not be more than 50cents per 1,000 feet, or just about half what consum ers are now paying. A bulletin issued by the Department of Commerceand Labor shows that of the twenty five countries of the world, all but four show a falling off in exports and nearly two-thirds show a decline in imports for the fiscal year 1908. Thus it appears to be the truth that the loss of $300,000,000 of American imports during 1908 and of $150,000,000 in American exports is only part of a general depression the world over. In discussing the conference of the heads of labor unions which he has called to take steps to find employment for those still ont of work, Secretary of Commerce and Labor Straus said he believed that fully one-third of the immi grants who come to this country do so because of false representations made in the interest largely of transportation companies. He pro poses to have correct information widely dis seminated in Europe. Following the confer ence with the labor leaders, Secretary Straus will see the principal manufacturers. He be lieves there is work enough for all if the prob lem of distributing the jobs can be solved. William J. Garland, a Baltimore police magistrate who was familiarly called “King Bill” by his intimates, has been obliged to re sign because of an alleged crooked transaction in the discharge of his official duties. Gov ernor Warfield refused to reappoint Garland because of his general reputation, bnt Governor Crothers had such heavy political pressure brought upoD him that he had to name him for the place. Garland was a political power in his ward and stood in with the Democratic machine. The specific charge against him this time was accepting S4O to have a Sunday liquor selling case withdrawn from the grand jury. Governor Crothers was the guest of honor at the annual banquet of the German Society of Maryland, held in Baltimore a few nights ago. He made a short speech and among other thiDgs said: ‘‘The more I have been able to look into the life and character of the German race the more highly I appreciate your people. You constitute a very valuable part of the citizenship of our gloriou State, and through your efforts largely we are able to re tain our proud position among the states of the Union. Your people are loyal in friend ship and generous with your fortunes. / bove all, you cannot drive a German from the field of conviction when he has made up his mind and he feels he is in the right.” The Maryland Presidential electors met at Annapolis on Monday last and held what is called the Electoral College, which simply means the formal casting of their ballots for President and Vice-President of the United States. Messrs. John H. Robinson and Albert G. Towers, the Republican electors who were chosen in November, voted for Taft and Sher man, while the six Democratic electors voted for Bryan and Kern. The next move in the routine of the Presidential election will not have been disposed of until the second Wed nesday in February, when the U. S. Senate and House will meet in the Hail of Represen tatives at Washington, Senator Frye presiding. The returns from all the states will then be canvassed, the result announced and a formal declaration made of the election of Taft and Sherman. President Roosevelt, for the past six years, has been using his "big stick” very freely and has gotten himself in several unpleasant rows, but he has at least run up against a snag with the House of Representatives and his position today is by no means an enviable one. His last message to Congress contained insinuations or charges that highly incensed the members and they—by an almost unanimous vote — declared : “We consider the language of the President in his message of December Bth, 1908, unjustified and without basis of fact, and that it constitutes a breach of the privileges of the House. That the message of the President sent to the House on January 4th, 1909, being unresponsive to the inquiry of the House and constituting an invasion of the privileges of the House by questioning the motives and intelli gence of members in the exercise of their con stitutional rights and functions, be laid on the table.” This rebuke to the President was car ried by a vote of 212 to 35. The people of the country must feel glad that there are less than two more months of Roosevelt, then a "safe and sane” administration will begin at the Nation’s Capital. When the comic history of the American people comes to be written a fat chapter will have to be allotted to the antics of the experts, whose knowledge usually bears the inverse re lation to their fees. In the Thaw case, for ex ample, the alienists who took the stand for the State, or the defense, were themselves some times brought uncomfortably near to the doors of the madhouse. So, too, the hearings of the tariff schedules go to prove that the cost of manufacture is mere guess work; for men like Mr. Gary and Mr. Carnegie are at opposite poles of opinion as to the minimum price at which steel can be made. Mr. Gary maintains that the present protection is none too great, while Mr. Carnegie declares that the industry needs no protection at all. To use the canny Scot’s picturesque phrase, “there are as many ways of estimating the cost of output as there are of killing a cat.” One would imagine that it were easy enough to take the value of the ore and add thereto such items as wages, the interest on capital, and the depreciation of plants. But the experts can agree upon noth ing save the bare principle itself. In plain terms, the revision of the tariff will not be the result of expert wisdom, such as it is, but by the compromising ofinnumerable self interests. Special to The Union. LETTER FROM ABROAD. A Society of Free Thought in Arles— The Priests Ignored at Funerals— Treating Christianity as a [Myth and Catholi cism With no Respect. Arlss, France, Jan. 7tb, 1900. Messrs. Editors /—The priests of Arles are in despair. The male members of their flock are tumbling into perdition one by ooe. The holy fathers first made heroic efforta to save them against their will, and succeeded in dragging one or two refractory souls, willy-nilly, from the infernal pit, but now theae obstinate Arle sians have carried their case to court and have established on a legal basis tbelr privilege to be damned. The good wives of Arles, disturbed by the prospect of an eternal widowhood, are the ardent allies of the priests, but the headstrong husbands insist on going to hell. Last week I attended the funeral of the late Monsieurß .ancientand honorable mayor of Arles and member of the Legion of Honor. It was there that I first learned upon what evil days the local church has fallen. The funeral cortege was Imposing, for Monsieur K bad been widely popular. The procession was bead ed by a company of citizens who marched In a hollow square, grouped around a black velvet banner on which were inscribed in silver letters the legend “BocWte de Lipre Pensee.” Six black horses drew the hearse and eight or nine hun dred mourners followed on foot, with uncov ered heads. No eulogy had been pronounced, and no prayer bad been offered at the family mansion where the body bad lain in state, so I naturally supposed that the ceremony would take place in the cemetery, but absolute silence reigned while the coffin was being lowered into the grave, and when the president of the society stepped forward at the last moment, be simply said: “Friend and Brother, farewell forever.” That was all. My profound astonishment was increased when I learned that eight-tenths of the male inhabi tants of Arles are members of the Society of Free Thought, and that these civil interments are the rule and not the exception. The history of the establishment of this organization is curi ous and interesting. Five years ago a number of hardy skeptics concluded, inasmuch as they bad lived content without attending mass or going to the confessional, that they could die equally content without the services of the priests. When the first member passed away bis pious confreres took possession of the body and quietly dumped it into a grave, witbout a single prayer, without burning a single candle, and despite the hysterical resistance of the heart broken widow, who was a devout believer and who consequently felt that her beloved husband was lost to her.not only for this life but for all eternity. Naturally she confided the tragic story to the horrified priests, knowledge of the affair reached the ears of the general public and of the bishop, and ended by assuming the pro portions of a scandal. But the society did not disband. In fact it was strengthened by the notoriety, for it is fashionable in France to scoff at everything religious. They regard the church as “an excellent diversion and prop for women and weaklings.” Soon afterward another com rade died and within an hour his brethren were at the door to claim the body. But prompt as was their aetion they were too late. The widow herself opened the door and made no effort to deter them from entering the death chamber. She was the picture of meekness and resigna tion. Silently elated the sombre delegation filed into the little parlor, but recoiled dumb founded before the unexpected and dramatic scene that greeted their eyes. The shrouded body lay outstretched upon a bier in the center of the room, candles were burning at the head and feet, and the odor of in scenee was In the air. Towering before them like an avenging angel stood Monsignor the Bishop. In his right band gleamed a naked sword and in his left he held a crucifix. “In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost,” said be—and the Libre Penseurs responded not a word. But they met that night and in secret laid the plans for a complete re venge, after which they tranquilly bided their time. Six months passed and another aged brother crossed the river. This time the society was triumphant. The president produced a for mal testament, legally witnessed and bearing the public notary’s official seal, in which the de ceased member bad declared: “I, Jacques Beaumard, do hereby will and command that, upon my death, my body be de livered into the hands of the Societe de Libre Pensee, to be interred by these, my brethren, without religious ceremony and without the presence of a priest or any other official repre sentative of the church.” Law is law, and particularly in France, where the government is never so happy as when chance offers it an opportunity to serve the priests an evil turn, it was useless to contest the document. By its audacity the Societe de Libre Pensee sprang into immediate prominence and popu larity, for in this country it is considered a sign of superior intelligence and manliness to hold the church in light esteem. The organization already numbered among its members the lead ing professional men and politicians of the com munity and in course of time became a formi dable power. Poor and humble citizens were welcomed into the ranks and joined the more readily because they felt they were alligniug themselves. Identifying themselves as it were, with a progressive government and a wise ad ministration, against an institution that was well enough under the old regime, but that should have been abandoned after the revolu tion. The truth of the matter is that France as a nation is no longer Christian. The govern ment is openly inimical to the church. The lead ing contemporary scientists and philosophers are even more radical in their disbelief than were Voltaire and Rousseau. The great daily news papers (with one or two notable exceptions), when they mention the subject seriously, which rarely occurs, treat Christianity as a myth and Catholicism as an abomination. All these in fluences are shaping public sentiment, and the state of affairs at Arles is but one phase of a more widespread and.mcre general condition. Seabkook. Another coal mine horror occurred in the Lick Branch Mice, about twenty miles from Bluefield, W. Va., on Tuesday morning, in which over one hundred miners were killed. The accident was caused by an ignorant for eigner using an uncovered lamp. About two weeks before fifty men were killed in the same minee by an explosion. The postal saving bank is established in the Philippines and is reported to be growing favorably. Forty per cent, of the depositors are Fillipinos, and this is their first experience with bank facilities. Seattle’s restaurant keepers have voted not to increase their prices this year during tbe Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition. That town seems to have talent for putting a big show in shape to win.
