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.

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.”
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.
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

We beg to remind Senators Faulkner and
| Gorman that the Legislature of West Vir
ginia has a Republican majority yet neither
: of them has heard of any attempt to force
, "nigeer domination” upon the people.—
Martinsburg Herald.
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.

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. __
