Last week The Free Press, referring to
John Brown said he was ‘‘only a lunatic and
murderer.” It was written “fanatic” not
lunatic. The proof reader overlooked the
error of the type setter. A Virginia jury
would not have condemued a lunatic to
The Southern citie* are becoming interest
ed in the proposed Rouss Confederate Me
morial Building—“The Temple of the Lost
Cause”—or “Westminster Abbey of the
South.” Nashville, New Orleans, Atlanta,
Richmond, Baltimore -all would be pleased
to have it.
Referring to the speech of Congressman
Patterson at Morgan's Grove, the editor of
the Advocate says: “We listened to him
patiently as long as we could, and if the
audience had been composed of Egyptian
mommies it could scarcely have been less
passive.” That's probable.
Another crushing blow the Advocate was
pleased to administer to Congressman Pat
tenon, to wit: be "draws a salary of $•’>,000
a year as a member of Congress!” Wbat
better argument has the editor of the Advo
cate ever made in bebalf of free and un
limited coinage of silver at 16 to 1!
Referring to tbe supplement which we
have been pleased to give to the readers of
The Free pREaei, the editor of the Advo
cate says : “It amazes us that our neighbor
has the gall to insult the intelligence of his
readers with such rot.” We are not appre
hensive that au apology to the editor of tbe
Advocate will be necessary.
And our brother has a grievance because
he cannot much for tbe truth of the above,
but is obliged to preface his remark with
“it is aaid."—Murtintburg Herald.
It would be well if tbe editor of the Her
aid could muster au “it is said,” even, for
many of the statements promulgated by him
— not, however, that "he has a grievance
because he cannot vouch for the truth” of
The editor ot the Advocate, the oracle of
the silver men of the couuty, (other silver
oracles will please excuse us) heard Cong
ressman Patterson at Morgan’s Grove last
Wednesday. He heard Mr. Patterson's in
vitation to silver men to propound inquiries
Mr. Patterson paused for interrogatories —
Probably the oracle was not of an inquiring
mind just then because he thought he "knew
it all.
The Sidiepherdston n Independent of last
Wednesday in its notes on Morgan’s Grove
Fair, aaid: "The interesting event to-day
will be the baseball game between the Mar
tinsburg and Hagerstown teams." Great
fteott! That was the day for speaking by
Post master-Genera I Wilson and ex Con
gressman Patterson! “Everybody to their
taste," said the old lady when she kissed
the cow.
The Advocate, ever ready to attribute sel
!iah motives to those who have opinions
contrary to his own, *ay» : “He [Congress
inan Patterson doubtless is an applicant for
some appointment at the hands ot tbe ad
ministration, as soon as his present steward
ship is ended, and desires to make himsell
•olid." I’nless the present administration
has a new lease, Mr. Patterson's term in
Congress is co-existent with the administra

wears a crown.
Judge I.uca* use* half a column or so of
the pbepLerdstown Independent'* valuable
•pace in n argument to the effect that per
nous or organization* may no* properly be
permitted to dictate legislation affecting the
special interest* which they repre*eut. Judge
Lucas quite correctly point* out that this
principle has been recognized almost from
the beginniug of the government. We call
attention to the fact that the sound mo-iev
men of the country arc earnestly contending
against propo*ed legislation in itself inde
feasible, and urged, not merely in iu gen
era! principles but iu its exact detail*, h>
the parties immediately interested—the hold
ers of silver mining stock.
The Advocate claims that Hon. Wui. L.
Wilson was at one time an advocate of free
•ilver. I* is easy enough to claim,—what
people want is proof. Brother Morrow ha*
long been known a* one of that cla*s wh<>
claim everything and prove nothing. We
deny that Mr. Wilson’s position on the mo
uey question ha* changed one iota. We
challenge the Advocate to prove to the ecu
trary. Mr. Wilsou has in six campaign'
stumped his district from eud to end, am)
his speeches have been published in halt
the paper* iu this state. He ha* also spo
ken in Congress Let Brother Morrow turn
to the files of these papers aud to the Con
greseional Record aud »ee if he can find a
solitary instance iu which Mr. Wilson ha*
advocate! the free coioage of* silver. H* 1
cannot do i<, aud he knows it. Claiming is
easy ; claim without proof i* worthless; and
claim disproved is fa««*. Mr. \Y il*on say* ^
he has never by word or vote advocated the ,
free coinage of silver He is in a position ,
to know, and those who know him know t
that he speaks the truth. ’
Up to September 1st, ’94, there was pn'd !
out for wheat at ^unimit Point by Mr. C. E
Baylor $20000. IV u* the corresponding
date ill 1895 only $3,000 his been paid with
no more wheat remaining in the hands n!
farmers than at this time last year, which
means that the bulk of the crop baa been
Perhaps some farmers in that locality took
the advice and fo lowed the example of the
editor of the Advocate and failed to sow
wheat last fall. About the first of June
last we twitted the farmer-editor of the Far
er’s Advocate on his lack of sagacity in not
planting wheat last fall and advising bis
neighbors to follow in bis footsteps. And
he came back at us, explaining and attempt
ing to prove that it was more profitable to
produce corn (though ou a former occasion
he assured us that corn was not a cash pro
ducing crop1. We append his table, which
he imagined was a clean “knock out.
70 acres of corn. 10 bbls. per acre at $2 $1100.00
70 acres of wheat. 20 bus. per acre at 75c lOoOOO
Balance in favor of corn.$ 35^00
“Now who is the m-ist ‘sagacious,’ the
farmer who has 70 acres of wheat at the
possible price of 75 cents, or i0 acres nl
corn at the certain price of $2 per barrel ?
Now suppose the tnb'e is revised to suit the
conditions. He tells us he will not have
more than a half crop of corn. A neigh
bor says eight barrels of corn per acre would
be a fair estimate:
70 acres of corn. 4 bhls p«»r acre, at $'i. $560 0o
70 acres of wheat, 20 bus. peracre, at 75c.lo50 00
Balance in favor of whett'...$ 490Oo
Or at 6uc. the balance in tavor of wheat f isc.w
Of course we anticipate that Editor Mor
row will sav be had no control over the sea
son and the short corn crop; but he cannot
fairly throw the responsibility on Providence
for the failure to plant wheat Hod counsel
others to follow his example—unless the
Almighty erred in permitting him 'o be a
tiller of the soil with so little capacity for it.
Again referring to Congressman Patter
son’s speech the Advocate says :
•'We heard many expressions of disgust,

but that the management wou.d second a
scheme to thru-t mugwumpery down the
throats of the farmers If Morgan’s Grove
is to become a political side show, then its
days of popularity are numbered. When
Judge Lucas spoke there last year, although
manv came there especially to hear a Iree
silver speech, and although a majority < f
the audience were anxious that he should
go into the question, both the speaker and
his close friends determined that it was in
appropriate, and the great question was
passed with little more than a few observa
Of cona*e the Fair authorities did a very
unwi«e thing—this year and every other year
—in d ling what other managers of great
gathering- of farmers—notably Williams’
Grove assemblies of Grangers—have been
doing annually,inviting discussions of ques
tion- of great public interest! And last year
when it invited Judge Luca-, when ‘ many
came there especially to hear a silver
speech,” and “a majority of the audience
were anxious that he should go into the
question” it wa» very naughty to have con
teinplated such a proceeding ! And it was a
very delicate and commendable seii-eot ap
pieciatiou of the proprieties indulged by
’•the -peaker and his close friends” when
tbev “determined that it was inappropriate
and tli great question was pesaed with little
more than a few observations !”
A- ritE Free Press has said elsewhere,
the Advocate severely criticises the man
agement of the Morgan’s Grove Fair for
introducing into its exercises a discussion
of the money question by the Hon. Mr. Pat
terson. The real grievance of the Advocate
is to be found iu the fact that the speaker
opposed free silver. Had he spoken oi. the
other -t.le, the space devoted by the Advo
cate to criticism of the management for in
troducing an element of discord into its
*• otherwise peaceful a id plea-wit proceed
itlgs ‘ would have been taken up with a re
port of the speech aud high sounding enco
miums of the speaker. What one sees al
wav* depends upon the poiut from which
he sees it.
