44POLITICAL AND MC
The Baltimore Sun Discusses Campaigi In ' i? denunciation of 'ne Dro' posed constitutional amendment soine of tht- Republican orators are becom nig vklid in their statements and alle? gations. Mr. George Whltelock. in his speech on Wednesday lo the daily gathciiug of opponents of the amend? ment at their headquarters. 4-" East Maltitnore street, said of the Southern States: I "Such states are without influence in their Council? of the nation. "The adoption of the amendment would produce a condition of agHtteal moral degeneracy." This is according to Mr. Whltelock s own statement in yesterday's Suu. A Klcbmoiid man, who says he was pres? ent at the meeting and beard Mr. Whitelock's speech, aasens that Mr. Whitelock said thai he did not want Maryland to be placed in the same column with the states of the South which had disfranchised the negro because these states were "despised by the rest of the 1'nion," and that "all persons who would vote fur such an amendment were moral degenerates." This Virginian asks: "Do the business men of this city want to be put on record as saying they despised the South because she unburdened herself of the curse of Re construction days? I think not. "Does any sensible man in this city think that the majority of the people of Virginia are 'moral degen? erates,' because they disqualified a horde of crap-shoot lug. whiskey-drink? ing negroes." Accepting as absolutely true Mr. Whitelock's statement of what he said, the logical inference from his lan? guage is that he considers the South? ern States as in a condition of "po? litical degeneracy.'- because practi? cally all these states have adoptee! amendments to eliminate the ignor? ant negro vote. The people who know them, the people who do business with them, the jieople who compare them with the inhabitants of other sections, know that far from being "degenerates," the people of the South are the sturdiest and most patriotic, the most truly American stock to be found in all the land. They are a progsj and high minded race, with a high sense ofhon disuonesty in the entire South 'U*sn there is in some single cities in the Nortn. That fact is very well known >RAL DEGENERATES* Wild Statements by Republicar l Orators.. aud easily demonstrated. The state and 1.? a! governments ure admin's I tered with an honesty ana pauistnk iug economy that cannot be found ii the Republican mates of the Nor? which Mr. W"ni:eK?k evidently re Kardii as models. I The adoption of constitutione amendments in the South to e'tmuiat* j the negro has resulted in vastly im proved political, social and industrial .conditions. The ixaiple of those states I white Republicans a* well as Demo? crats? would not think of returning to : thn, conditions that prevailed when the J ?c.lid mass of negroes cast their votes , at the behest of the Republican jioli ticians. I Broad-minded Republicans In the .North.and West have accepted the Souihern view of this question, be? cause-they have heen how well u works in practice. The President of the L'uited States, who is the ac? knowledged leader of the Republican ' party, volo-d this view when he told the Southerners assembled at the ban? quet of the North Carolina Society in I New York on December 7. IsMbt. that I he and the Republicans of the North wished to "have the South understand ? that tiie attitude of the Republican party toward it la not one of hostil? ity or criticism or opposition, politi | c ally of otherwise: that they believed In the maintenance of the Fifteenth Amendment. |?it that they do not deem that amendment to be incon? sistent with the South's obtaining what it regards as its |K>iitical safety from domination of an ignorant elec? torate." Mr. Taft declared that noth ing sould give bim greater pride than to .so direct the policy of his admin? istration "in resi>e.-t to the Southern States as to convince its intelligent citizens of the desire of the Adminis? tration to aid them in working out satisfactorily the serious problem be? fore them of bringing them and their Northern fellow citizc.is closer and closer in sympathy and point of view."

"JERSEY DEVIL" DEAD. Body of Strange Animal Has Been Found in the Woods. If anybody ever doubted chat a Jersey devil" left its strange and puzzling hoofprints in the snow of this and adjoining states i nthe snowuP-t and adjoining states last winter, proof was pi educed here today that the scare was never due to highballs There is On exhibit in this city the . .m ass of the pueerest animal ever seen sbout here, a beast not on the schedule of any uatural history ever read by any one of this section. The tufftial's body, still in good con? dition, as though it had been dead only a short while, was found by Mor? ris t'abinsky, of this city, and Charles Malsbury, of Kinkora, in the woods near Kinkora Tuesday, and was brcugh to this city, where hundreds have seen and marveled- Phoiograps Rive been made of the beast, and Prof. JJeiiry Morse, curator of the State Museum, will be asked to give the tiifmal a uamc, and p'ace it where it belongs? H he is able to do so. The boys thought at first they had come upon the carcass of a big wild? cat, but it looked sa pueer to them that they decided to carry itinto town. The body of the animal is about 2d inches ling, and thin. The spinal column extends 6 inches behind the junction with the hind leg9, like the tall kangaroo, but this^gain again is tipped with 9 inches of taii like a squirrel's, but of reddish-brown fur. The strangest feature of all and that which would seem to convict It of last winter's famous hoofprints. is found in the fore legs and feet. The legs are 15 inches long, consisting of four joints, and socketed to these are the feet which take the form of ? broad, flat bone with a distinct beer The foot bones are 2 1 -2 Inches ioog. and over an inch broad ia a solid piece. If the snimal traveled by leaps, bending the two forefeet down to? gether be would land after each lang spring wiib the feet forming the puzzling effect of hoofprints ss seen In the snow last winter. The rear feet would explain the finidng of 'cat'' prints near the hoof marks What iooks like the framework of a pair ot short wings rises from the animalB back, just above its short bind legs. The big mouth is set with sharp teeth three-quarters of an inch long, while the head is adorned with long, lance-like ears and whiskers. 4 inches long.?Rurliagton (N J ) Dispatch to New York World. a Oaa Based Ca Waas.
