w‘ w7b.GALLABER, Editor. Chart—toven.J effereon County. Weot fa. jirnu f? gff Per Annum in Advance. Oetober SO. MM. Tb® Baltimore Sun nod New* are try ing to make minc®-m®at of Basin. Tutti fruiti. We are all familiar with the pneumatic tir® on the bicycle, but it i* now seen on buggy wheel*. It’* * thiuK A Mrs. Laog'lon, of Ohio, recently gave birth to five boys. And yet there are people condemning the Wilton bill as a measure detrimental to the iufant industries. If we accept the testimony of the Sun and New* and some people that ha^e a contro versy with Mr. Gorman, Baltimore is a bad place because of Democratic rule. What is It about birds that foul their own nests ? The Frederick Citizen referring to recent speeches of Senator Faulkuer and Repreeen tative Hemphill in that city savs: It is seldom any people bav# the pleasure of lis tening to two such brilliant and pleasing orators.” More mail matter was handled during the laat three months than during any corn* ponding period heretofore. So much lor the Wilson tariff bill and Grover Cleve land's unshaken regard for the pledges o the government. The Shepherdstown Iudep»Mident recent ly had the pleasure of welcoming Gen. H. Kyd Douglas to its sanctum and concluded its personal notice by saying “long may hr yet wave.” The General has been waving a long time, but never wavers. Wellington and Blucher were one too many for Napoleon, aud it appears that Lanahan and Bians are just one tot) many for the Baltimore Bonaparte. There’s an advantage in two to oue, whether the game be a Waterloo or a a crackloo or any otbrr 100. Gen. Thomas Ewing says: “It about needs a foreign war to get this country on a healthy basis, politically and financially. A foreign war might be the means of re moving some of the obstructionists of good government. It would be heroic treatment for some of the political aud fiuaocial gen eral*. Ex-Senator Butler, of South Carolina, said in Washington on Tuesday of last week that Senator Gorman estimate* the Demo cratic majority in Maryland at from ten to fifteen thousand, aud that Mr. Gorman is not only an astute and discerning politician, but a man wise and true enough for all Democrat* to tie to. ■■I ■. — -♦ — Capt. Wm. B. Lynch, editor of the Wash ingtonian, has been elected president of the LoudouD National Bank, at Leesburg The editor of The Free Press would like to get a cinch on bauk stock enough to war rant such a step down from the tripod.— Hope Brother Lynch will remain with the Washingtonian which he has - > long and so ably edited. . — - - ■ ■ ♦» Some of the Baltimore preachers are tak ing a hand in politics, and these have much mention in a couple of the papers of that city ; whilst the great, the matchless Rev. Dr. Uoge, who preached there on Sunday and doubtless confined himself to the Gospel of Peace, had a meagre mention of two line and a half. Political preachers are at a premium with the newspapers. The Shepherdstowii Register, established in 1849, last week entered upon its3lst vol ume since the war. It is an excellent paper -well-printed, newsy and ably edited, ami gives evidence of prosperity perching on its banner. It is somewhat hair-splitting on the Maryland contest. We’d like to know where it is at —wtutner it is running with the hair or holding with the hounds.'' Rather depressing to the stock raiser is the experience related by one of our farmer' a few days ago. He wanted to sell some horse*, etc. Couldn’t do it at home, so he wrote to a Washington City commission horse-dealer. The information he gained was that steam, electric moter* and bicycles militated against the use of horses, aud that the present administration didn't employ jackasses. Notwithstanding there were so many at tractions -so much to be seen at the Hagers town Fai , the editor of the Berkeley Springs NewssaiJ he missed the editor of Ini Free Pre>.s. Complimented, we feel. Perhaps if we had kuown our genial fr en l Pendle ton was to be there, an extra eff.rf on our part might have brought us face to face.— We would rather have seen him than the silyer Ada Rehan. Rev J. Fred Heisse, editor of the Balti more Methodist, believes that “the>nd jus tlfie* the meaus.” So d > some politician*, and when they emphasize the doctrine by practice it is called ‘pernicious activity. Mr. Heisse *ays "We did filthy w .rk to*e cure evidence. It is not pleasurable to travel in sand and heat, enter saloons and resorts, buy intoxicating beverages and ap pear before grand juries ” The New York Herald *av* : ‘ Last week the Herald called attention to the advance statistical report of the government contain iog gratifying evidence that the exports of American manufactures now bid fair to be at the close of the pr< -ent year, $17, *>.'■ >■), more than in any year of our history.”— Doesn’t that look like reaching out after the trade of the world a* Mr. Wilson promised would be the result of Tariff Reform ? The bolting Maryland Democrat* who purpose to vote for Mr. Lowndes, Republi can, are not of the *arre opiniu with their candidate as to what will come to pa-* next year. They say the Democrats will carry the State uext Fall. Mr. Lowndes says: "Let ns carry Maryland thi* year, and we promise you that we will have her in the Republican colanan in the Presidential con test and keep her there for all time to come.” IF WILSON RVNS AGAIN. The following fetching rhyme is going the rounds of the State papers, under the cap tion “It Wilson Huns Again The people will get back at him, If Wilson runs again. They'll get another crack at him, If' Wilson runs again. They'll down his free trade nibs, They II punch him in the ribs. And pull him from the public cribs, If Wilson runs again. It goes without eaying the Republicans are already in the first stages of jimjams by reason of fear that Mr. Wilson may consent to be a candidate again. The I REE Press mounted its Pegasus and plucked a quill from his wing with which to indite the fol lowing : The |>eoi>le will come back to him, If Wilson runs again, They II crowd and push and pack to him, If Wilson runs again ; They II show the world they are not blind To gilts like his of heart and mind, And Dayton will be left behind, If Wilson runs again. WHCN DAYTON WINS AW AIN. Coxey will be 1'resident. When Dayton wins again, And every tramp a resident, When Dayton wins again, And all the women will have votes. And drees in pants and shirts and coats, And Irishmen stop keeping goats, When Dayton wins again And knowledge will be deemed a curse, When Davtoo wins again, And fools be bred at public purse, When Dayton wins again. And pride of State will be unknown, With Folly lifted to a throne. And manhood dead as any stone. When Dayton wins agaiu. Some so called Maryland Democrats who have boasism on tjie brain are entertaining tbe idiotic idea that the cure-all is the tri umph of tbe Republican party—that if they will a-«->ist Mr. Lowndes to bo Governor he « 1 pull the Democratic party out of the alleged Valley of Degradatiou and Corrup rnptioo into which the bosses have placed t, and that having given Mr. L iwndes and hi- party control of the State machinery in a year's time he will let them have it all back agaiu without the bosses aud minus •. mss ism : Liken tue year between as a loop anu it will be found next fall that Lowndes and his party are pulling and pushing, too.— I e following illustrates it: “Up iu the mountains, where the railroad circles arouud, almost making perfect loops in - une of us windings, I was riding in the ih-ervation car, at the rear end of the train, uid at one place saw a train coming close behind us Asking the conductor what rain that was, he replied : * That’s our tram. When trains first commenced running over the mountains here, two engines were usual Iv required to h:»ul the cars, but thecompa n v had to cut down expenses, so they order ed the engineers to put on a little more -peed when they reached the loops and catch up with their own trains. That loco motive will hitch on this car, directly, and push us up over the mountain.’ ” Those who oppose the election of Mr Hurst in Maryland and express the expec tation that the State will he carried by the Democrats next year overlook the fact that Mr Lowndes would still be Governor, and if ihere should be a vacancy in the Sen •ite fie would appoint a successor—a Repub lican. This might occur immediately after the adjournment of the Legislature. Judg it g from the vituperative, villifying treat ment Mr. Gorman is receiving, his death might not be a grief to those who are damn mg him before he is defunct, but his -eat filled by a Republican would make the Senate so; the House will be Republican, a d might be agaiu after the expiration of President Cleveland’s term, and then per adventure, a Republican President!—the wh de government would be in the hands of the Reeds, the McKinleys, the Forakers — Tb-* defeat of the Democratic ticket t ,-fhr! Mr. Gorman is rather a coatly t ing Think of it. The very idea i» eu nigh to make every mill put in motion by 1 irimicratic reform of the tariff stop right away. Rev. .1. Wynne Jones, on Sunday in Bal timore said : fc,ven more exces-. > is me danger arts mg iu politics from the unthinking class — l hey are always very ugly, hut just now iiiey are coming to the surface in the poll lies of this city and county. They never rend any papers and their heads are stutled i'h nonsense by the designing demagogues. I: i* to this cla-s that thev an- saving jus now: 'If Maryland and Baltimore go R« i ublican this year, look out for next year.” In the latter sentence the Rev. Jones un wittingly gave Mr. I. >wndes a thrust. Mr Lowndes recently -aid in a public speech I md we have too much respect for him tc call him a "designing demogogue): * Ltus carry Maryland this year, and we pr inig you that ws will have her in the Republic ui column in the Presidential con te-t, and keep her th**re for all rime to come.’ Senator Sherman has writleu a book, in which he portrays the treachery tha’ se* cured th • nomination of Grant, Haves and Garfield for the Presidency, and theenrrup tion that attended their administrations — John is, and for years has been, a central : ire in Republican politics, and it may bs a--ired know* whereof he writes.

The Republican party of West Virginia is uot composed of five negroes to four whites, as in Maryland The conditions in Maryland and West Virgioia are uot the same: in the one the Republican party is largely composed of negroes; in the other of whites. The negro organ of Baltimore, the Stan dard, in speaking of that race as an issue in the present campaign, says : “These old, moss-back, bourbonized Dem ocrats are afraid of the negro, and the least hintou this line is sufficed to cause them to tremble like a leaf. We are not in the fight for supremacy, but for equal adranta get in the public schools.'’ The negro clearly demands “equal advan• tages" not ouly in public schools but every thing else ; and Mr. Lowndes has announced that in the event of his election the negroes shall have the same chances for offices as the whites. The Pioneer Press, organ at Martinsburg of the negroes, says: “By uniting under standing^, the schools of Baltimore can be taught by colored instead of white teachers.” The Frederick Citizen says : “Outside of Garrett and Allegany counties there is not a county in the State of Maryland which ever gives a Republican majority that is not made up exclusively of negro votes. In oth er words, not a county, save the two named, ever gives a Republican majority that would not go overwhelmingly Democratic if the negro had no vote. Now, in one of the counties where there is a large negro vote, we have the best authority for saying that a Republican Judge placed the names of ignorant, illiterate negroes in the jury box, though there weie plenty of intelligent white men competent to serve on the jury. As a result, out of the forty eight names drawn, there was but one man fit to be fore m«n of the Fraud iurv : andthatbodv.com posed of many worthless negroes, was ac tually constrained to request one of the ne gro members to retire from the jury room whilst the other twenty-two considered and investigated an accusation of theft against him. The Republican Judge at a recent term of the same court appointed three ne groes out of the six court officers, and one of these negroes was bailiff to the grand jury. What may you expect with the State government in the hands of Republicans who owe their election to negro votes ?’’ The uegroes of New York City, in public ■ueetiug assembled, have declared that negro children shall be admitted to the white pub lie schools, aud that uegroes shall he ap pointed teachers in the schools attended by the white children of that city. There are negro free schools there with negro teachers, but the negro preachers, who were the speak ers at the meeting referred to, do not recog nize and appreciate the wisdom of letting well enough alone. Mr. Aldridge Young, of Raltimore, in a letter to the Baltimore Sun, theshes over a good deal of old straw, and the result is chaff—nothing but chaff He asks Senator Faulkner some questions which he may an swer if he thinks the game worth the candle. It is true Senator Faulkner's first election to the Senate was the result of the failure of the legislature to elect Mr. Camden, the caucus nominee; hut Mr. Faulkner had nothing to do with the so-called revolt.— Same of those who aided in the defeat of Mr Camdeu regretted it, and afterwards for years and now are friendly to him. He was subsequently elected to the Senate, and it proved that his alleged bossism was not such a bugaboo after all. Isn’t it absurd to sug gest, as .Mr. Young has done, that the peo ple of Maryland should regard Mr. Faulk ner’s presence in that State at this time •‘strange'' because Mr. Faulkner’s election to the Senate was the result of a failure of his party iu the legislature to elect some bouyelse: >vsiy, it is ms ursi duty as n staunch party mar*—especially so as a rep resentative Democrat aud chairman of the National Congressional Committee—to ex ercise himself iu behalf of the party nomi nees io Maryland or elsewhere if his servi ces are requested. It is puerile to talk of his "riveting the chains of Gormuuism” or anybody else on the people of Maryland by advocating the election of a ticket nomi nated by a regularly constituted convention It was Mr. Faulkner’s proud distinction to be the lieutenant of Mr. Gorman iu the great contest in the Senate when he defeat ed the Republican etrort to manacle the whole Southern people. Mr. Young has a family connection here—and those bound to him by blood or other ties are none the better or worse for that fact—and he thinks he knows the sentiments of the people of J tl'er-on ; but he doesn’t by a jugful. As w- regard it, the contest in Maryland is pre iiminary to the great battle of a year hence —it I- a question of Democratic or Repub lican supremacy, and Senator Faulkner has the approval of his Democratic constitueu cy. If. peradventure, there are those with in tbt? Democratic party who would adverse ly criticise him him for the exercise ot his abilities iu behalf of the Democratic ticket, let them fight him from the outside, where they more properly belong. Our Governor complimented. The Cl arle-t >n Gazette says: “Governor Mac Corkle received a telegram from ex-Govern or Campbell yesterday stating that Mr Campbell is unable to fill bis appointments at Bartlesville, Woodsfield and Bellaire, be cause indisposed, and urged Governor Mac Corkle to go and fill them. He went.”— Nobody is cussing him for it—uuless it be the Republicans. The taunt that he is help ing “Boss Brice” hasn’t been flung in his face. And yet Senator Brice’a re election depend* upon the result there next week.— Senator Gorman's term does not expire un til March 4, 1899. We rather think that Senator Faulkner has embarrassed the Sun quite a good deal by his illustrations of its insincerity — Par ker eburg Sentinel. Th > .de crop of the United States this yea’ :i mated at 10,000,000 barrels. The Synod of Virginia. The Synod of Virginia convened at Charleston Tuesday night of last week—the 108th annual session. It comprises twelve Presbyteries, and includes the territory of Virgiuia, West Virginia, a part of Mary land and the District of Columbia. At a full meeting there would be four hundred members, but two hundred is about the usual attendance. About 160 answered to roll call. Rev. Dr. R. H. Fleming, the re tiring moderator, preached the introductory sermon, following which the Synod was call ed to order. The election of moderator being first in order, Dr. Kerr, of Richmond, placed in nomination Dr. Moses D. Hoge, of that city. Dr. Hoge requested the Synod not to ask him to serve as the presiding officer ; but, contrary to his request, he was unanimously elected, when he arose and courteously de clined to serve. Rev. G. W, Finley, D. D., of Augusta county, Va., was then elected. On Wednesday the report of the directors of Union Theological Seminary was sub mitted and a lively discussion was precipi tated on the question whether to refer the same to the seminary committee or to the committee on bills and overtures. It final ly went to the committee on the seminary, which is considered favorable to the remov al of the seminary to Richmond. The first business of importance disposed of by the Synod Thursday was the selection of Lewisburg, this State, as the place for holding the next annual session, lhe mat ter of the establishment of the Presbyterian College at Elkins was taken up, and a res olution accepting the offer made by H. G. Davis and Stephen B. Elkins was adopted. They offer to give to the proposed college all the ground necessary and in addition $30, 000, provided the Presbyteriau Church raises a like amount for that purpose. t'i.a A.iutiAn r.f the romnvnl of Union Theological Seminary came up ou the re port of the seminary committee, which rec* otumeuded the removal of the institution from Hampden-Sydney to Richmond. Dr. Kerr, of Richmond, opened the discussion by a strong appeal in fayor ot removal. At the eveuing session the Synod resumed consideration of the question, and Rev. Dr. Hopkins made a strong argument in favor of removal, while Dr. C. R. Vaughan, one of the seminary professors, and Rev. T. P. Eppes opposed removal. The speakers ex hibited a great deal of beat and feeling in the discussion. A telegram from the Synod of North Carolina, in session at Fayetteville, was read by the moderator announcing that the Synod of North Carolina has consented to the removal of the seminary to Richmond conditionally on acquiescence of the Vir ginia Synod. By a vote of nearly two to one the Synod favored the removal of the Theological Sem inary. __ .Vftr Advertisements. House for Rent. A Dwelling House on Main street for Rent. A|>|>tr tu F. L.
