The sterling honesty of Mr. Charles
Broadway Rouss is aptly illustrated
in an article on our first page to-day.
To this cardinal principle, more than
anything else, is the wonderful suc

Gov. MacCorkle's refusal to allow
Virginia trops to come into West
Virginia to break up miners'meet
ings is generally sustained. West
Virginia is doubtless able to look
after strikers when they become un
lawful in our own State, and the pre

"^have been a bad one.

But two counties in the State
(Hardy and Wyoming) have a lower
tax rate than Jefferson reported for
1894. Hancock has the same, (82
cts.,) whilst forty-seven counties are
higher, ranging from 86 to $2.55.?
Lewis, Monroe and Ohio counties
are not reported. In 1893 the rate
in Lewis for county and road pur
poses (schools not reported) was i
$1.10; Monroe, for county and road,
$1.28; and in Ohio, for county pur
poses alone, it was .50.
Col. Wm. P. Craighill, a native of
Charles Town, has been appointed
to succeed Brigadier General Casey
as chief of engineers, United States
Army. General Craighill is well
equipped for this distinguished posi

not altogether unexpected, gives
general satisfaction. In honnriog
him the President honors himself in
the wisdom of his selection, and the
General's fellow-townsmen, who hold
him in high esteem, will extend their
Mr. David E. Strasburg, formerly
connected with the Staunton Spec
tator, and well kuown in the printing
business, died on the 5th instant, at
his home in Baltimore, to which city
he moved about twelve years ago.
He was engaged in the printing busi
ness in Staunton when the war came
on and went into service in the West
Augusta Guard. He was a member
of Turner's Cornet Band, which
afterwards became the Stonewall Bri
gade Band, and was one of the few
survivors of the war period of that
noted musical organization.
Recently, when ex-Senator Camden
was asked for an expression of opin
ion as to the propriety or otherwise
of a State Convention thi3 summer
to consider the financial problem, lie
^ said: "My feeling would be against
calling such a convention at this time,
over a year in advance of an election.
The Democratic National Convention
of next year will have to pas3 upon
the financial question. That conven
tion will decide what the Democratic
position on the silver question shall
be, and I don't think the Democrats
of any of the States should in advance
of the National Convention's action
commit themselves in a way that
might placc them out of line with the
majority of the party in the next
" The History of the University of
California," edited bj' William Carey
Jones and published by oar former
townsman Mr. Frank H. Duke-Smith,
will, as we learn from the San Fran
cisco Call of a recent date, which
contains illustrations from the work,
make its appearance in a few days.
This institution is now the fourth
richest college in this country, and
President Eliot of Harvard classes it
as one of the five great universities of
America. From a teaching staff of
ten in 18G9 the number has swelled
to ninety-six for the current year.
The increase in the number of stu
dents ha3 also been phenomenal,
Tising from forty the first year to 1776
for the session of 1894-95. In all
. 14,279 students have matriculated at
the university since 1869.
The Belt line railroad tunnel, one
of the most remarkable engineering
feats of modern times, which has
been built under Baltimore, from
Camden station to Bayview junction,
on the Philadelphia division of the
Baltimore and Ohio railroad, a dis
tance of seven and a half miles, has
been formally opened for business,
and hereafter there will be no trans
ferring of passenger trains across the
Patapsco river. Trains will be run
between New York and Washington
in four aDd a half hours, and between
Philadelphia and Washington in two
and a half hours. Two new passen
ger stations will be built by the Bal
timore and Ohio Company along the
Belt line tracks; one, to take the
place of Camden station, will be at
Lombard, Liberty and Howard
streets; the other at the open cut in
the northern part of the city.
On the Crest of the Allegheniea.
To those contemplating a trip to
the mountains in search of health and
pleasure, Deer Park on the.crest of
the Allegheny mountains, 3,000 leet
above the sea level, offers such varied
attractions as a delightful atmosphere
during both day and night pure
water, smooth, winding roads through
the mountains and valleys, and the
most picturesque scenery in the Al
legheny range. The hotel is equip
ped with all adjuncts conducive to the
entertainment, pleasure and comfort
of its guests.
The surrounding grounds, as well
as the hotel, are lighted with elec
tricity. Six miles distant, on the
same mountain summit, is Oakland,
the twin resort of Deer Park, and
equally as well equipped for the en
tertainment and accommodations of
its patrons. Both hotels are upon
the main line of the Baltimore and
and Ohio Railroad, have the advan
tages of its splendid Vestibuled Lim
ited Express trains between the East
and West. Season excursion tickets
good for return paesage until October
81, will be placed on sale at greatly
reduced rates at all principal ticket
offices throughout the country. One
way tickets, reading from St. Louis,
Louisville, Cincinnati, Columbus,
Chicago, and any pcint on the B. &
O. svstem to Washington, Baltimore
Philadelphia or New York, or vice
versa, are good to stop off at either
Deer Park, Mountain Lake Park or
Oakland, and the time limit will be
extended by agents at either resort
upon application, to cover the period
of the holder,s visit.
The season at these popular resorts
commences June 22nd.

A Terrible Visitant.
Pain Is always a terrible visitant, and often
domiciles itself with one for life. This inflic
tion is prcventlble, in cases or rheumatism, by
a timely resort to Ilostetter'aStomich Bitters,
which checks the encroachments of this ob
stinate and dangerons malady at the outset.
The term "dangerous" is used advisedly, for
rheumatism is always liable to attack the vital
organs and terminate life. No testimony is
more conclusive aud concurrent than that of
physicians who testify to the excellent effect of
the Bitters in this disease. Persons who incur a
wetting in rainy or suowy weather, and who
arc exposed to draughts, should use the Bitters
as a preventive of ill offects. Malaria, dys
pepsia, liver and kidney trouble, nervousness
ana debility are also among the ailments to
which this popular medicine is adapted. For
the infirmities, soreness and stiffness of the
aged it is highly beneficial.

Mr. O. A. Fowler has been ap

urerer of the C. S. Maltby Company.
He will take charge of the Maltby
House, Baltimore, to succeed Col.
George P. Mott, who died recently.
Mr. Fowler has been connected with
the Maltby Company more than
twenty-five years. He says he will

The Barn urn & Biuley greatest
show on earth will visit Baltimore
May 15 and 1G, and Washington
City May 17 and 18. In the char
acter of the exhibition there has been
considerable change since last
season, it being the desire of the
management to remove as far as
possible the opportunity of saying
that the circus is the 'same old thing.'
The spectacle, which has been a fea
ture of the Barnum & Bailey show
for several seasons, has been dropped,
and the circus progamme has been
proportionatelv lengthened. In the
menagerie is Jonanna, the only giant
gorilla living in captivity. And there
are twenty-four big elephants, all
trained to do surprisingly clever
feats. The water carnival, which is
the newest feature of the circus, and
the one which made the big sensa
tion during the New York engage
ment, will also be brought to these
cities, and will be the greatest amuse
ment novelty that will visit this part
of the country this season. The wa
ter carnival is given in a lake of wa

Captain Cord's Unpleasant Ex
Capt. Frank P. Cord, passenger
conductor on the Norfolk & Western
Railroad, had an unpleasant expe
rience the other night, according to
the Hagerstown Mail. He passed
into the day coach and took up the
ticket of a quiet man who had a ticket
from Apilene, Texas, to Luray. He
gave him a check, and passed on. The
man put it in his hat. Shortly after
wards the man got up and asked a
a passenger to step back to the
platform with him. The passenger
did so and was surprised when the
man invited him to get off. The
train was moving at a high gait. A
struggle took place. The passenger,
fortunately, was the stronger of the
two and got the man safely back into
the car. Capt. Cord was notified.
The man was found rapidly undress
ing himself and was dead crazy. It
took all the ingenuity of the conduc
tor. porter and a passenger or two
to keep the man in the car. From
his remarks.it was gathered that his
name was Bob Holmes. He positive
lj' declined to put his shoes on. He
was guarded all the time until Luray
was reached and though he made
several breaks the ladies in the car
did not know that a raving maniac
was on the train. At Luray the
telegraph operator and an officer took
charge of the man. It was an un
pleasant experience for Capt. Cord
| and the passengers.

Da. G. C. Osgood,
u Castoria Is the best remedy for children of
which I am acquainted. I hope the day is not
far distant when mothers will consider the
real interest of their children, and use Castoria
instead of the various quack nostrums which
are destroying their loved ones, by forcing
opium, morphine, soothing syrup and other
hurtful agents down their throats, thereby
