(12,t HON. LLOYD LOWHDES. One of Maryland's Leading Men. The Baltimore American one of the great metropolitan newspa pers of the country gives a bio grapical sketch of Hon. Lloyd Lowndes who has many friends in Clarksburg where he was born and where his boyhood days were spent. The American also gives space for a large two column por trait of Mr. Lowndes and speaks concerning him as follows , Among the progressive men of Maryland there stands no more prominent figure than that of Hon. Lloyd Lowndes, of Cum berland, and the only regret that the city of his adoption has is that it cannot claim him as one of its children by right of birth. To Maryland's sister State? old Virginia?belongs that honor and distinction, and when, on the morning of February 21st, 1845, Lloyd Lowndes first saw the light oi day in Clarksburg, Mary land had but little, if any, inter est in the advent, It was not until twenty-three years after, when, in 1867, he took up his residence in this city, that a mutual interest at once manifest ed itself and Cumberland began to realize that a man of future prominence had become a citizen of Maryland, and watched with great interest the commencement of a promising career, and, from year to year, with great gratifica tion. noted his onward and up ward path, marked by milestones recording financial and popular success. Lloyd Lowndes, Jr., the young est son of Lloyd Lowndes and the subject of this sketch, was born in Clarksburg, Harrison county, Virginia, on the morning of February 21st, 1845, and in that city received the eariy part #f his education. When he was sixteen years of age he entered Washington College, of Wash ington, Pa. He spent two years there and then went to Allegha ny College, at Meadville, Pa., where a further term of two years completed his scholastic education, and he graduated with ! honor in 1865. | Having some time previously determined to adopt the law as a profession, he entered the office of Richard L. Ashurst, one of Philadelphia's prom inent lawyers where, with a course in the Uni versity of Pennsylvania as an auxiliary, he devoted his entire energy to the acquirement of that Knowledge of law which while engaged in practice at the Allegheny bar, won for him the enviable distinction of being elected president of the Alleghany County Bar Associa tion and being a man whose opinions were sought after. Upon his graduation he settled in Cumberland, and soon acquir ed a large and lucrative practice. His thorough knowledge of the fundamental principles of con stitutional law and his great per sonal popularity made hi* a most desirable candidate for Congres sional honors, and, at the urgent request of the leaders of the Re publican party he accepted the nomination for Congress, and went into the campaign of 1872, and was elected over the Hon. John Ritchie, of Frederick coun ty, the Democratic nominee, by the majority of 1,700. In this fight, Mr. Lowndes threw all of that energetic and persistent ap plication which had characterized his work at school, the college, the university and while practic ing at the bar, and the "forlorn hope" led by him at that time was right gallantly won and showed a reversal of 3,200 votes, his antagonist having been elect ed two years before by a majori ty of 1,500. When he entered the Forty-third Congress he was but twenty eight years of age and was the youngest member in the House, notwithstanding which he served ably on several of the most important committees. In 1874, after much persuasion, he consented to the use of his name for the second time, as a candidate, and the effective work done by him in the previous cam paign was again gone through with at a sacrifice to his practice and personal interest. His op ponent this time was the late Hon. William Walsh, who, after the most exciting campaign in the history of the district, was declared elected by the scant ma jority of fifty votes. In this con flict Mr. Lowndes was one of the many Republican candidates wh?> fell a victim to that political cyclone of 1874. Since then ho has resisted all appeals from the many different committees and delegations that have proffered] him the nomination for either Governor or Congressman. Not a convention has assembled that has not mentioned his name in connection with either of these two offices, but his last negative has been as emphatic as his first. He has been delegate-at-Urge to the National Republican conven tions, and in conferences of the party his service and assistance have been cheerfully and liberal ly given as they have been in variably sought. Mr. Lowndes' means are vast, and there is no infant industry that will afford employment to the artisan or labor that cannot rely upon his cordial co-opera tion, and be sure of bis sympathy and liberal financial assistance. More particularly is this true of those struggling "bread-furnish ers,' that have been, and may hereafter be established in Cum berland or Alleghany county. The city, county, and State of his adoption are his first considera tions, and anything that will promote their interests and en lists his sympathies. As an evidence of this, the fol lowing will show : He is presi dent of these corporations : The Second National Bank, the Union Mining Company of Alleghany county, the Potomac Coal Com pany and Frostburg Gas and Electric Light Company. He is vice-president ot the Cumberland Paper Company, which is one of the largest industries in the city, and is a director in each of the following well-known and suc cessful business concerns : The Black, Sheridan and Wilson Com pany, the Fidelity and Deposit Company, of Maryland, Elk Lick Coal Company, Cumberland Im provement and Investment Com pany, Cumberland Electric Rail way Company. Cumberland Ice Manufacturing Company, Barton and George Creek Valley Coal Company, Merchants' National Bank of West Virginia, the Al leghany County Furniture Com pany and the daily News Publish ing Company. As a recognition of his superior executive ability, and a tribute to his interest in the advancement of the manufacturing, mining and financial interests of the State of Maryland, he was ap pointed one of the World's Fair commissioners, and he has de voted a large portion of his time towards securing a proper rep resentation of Western Mary land's developed and undevelop ed resources at the coming Ex- j position of expositions. Mr. Lowndes' social character is one that many older man would envy. Notwithstanding his large business connections, over which he exercises to a great extent a personal supervision, he always finds time to attend to the de mands of society, and being a man of scholary attainments and much devoted to the belles let tres, he is fond of both literary and scientific pursuits, which his bread and liberal education has eminently fitted him to thorough ly enjoy. He is a member of the Ameri can Academy of Political and Social Science, of Philadelphia ; the New York Southern Society, the Maryland, the Athenaeum, the University the Young Men's Republican Clubs, of Baltimore where he numbers hosts of friends. He has been vestryman and warden of Emanuel Episco mm pal Church, of Cumberland, and for over twenty years has been one of the lay delegates to the diocesan and goneral conventions of that body. His charities have always been as liberal as they been quiet and unostentatious, and many an institution owes to Hon. Lloyd Lowndes debts of eratitude for hberal subscrip tions that have gone to the credit of that ubiquitous individual known as a ??friend." By special arrangement the Sunday School Convention will adjourn in time for the lecture by Jahu Dewitt Miller, on next Tuesday evening. Get your tickets before the delegates to the convention take all the seats. Over 00 reserved seats wore sold on last Saturday and are still going rapidly. Only a Youb* Girl. HE OTHER day while Jesse Mil ler was digging .a post hole, pre paratory to en o larging his mother'sgarden, he came upon a box. Thinking ho was about to unearth a trcas ure he carefully . ro moved the |.t box, taking off the lid. Instead of finding a sum of money, the bones of an infant child were revealed. A young girl was suspected of not leading a virtuous life about two years ago, and this discovery throws considerable light on the affair. ?West Newton l'resn. Was she? Was the young girl suspected? Well then dig up the bones and put them on exhibi tion, label them with the name of the girl ??suspected." Don't let the grave bury her shame; don't give her a chance to cover it up, but scatter the news, stir up the gossips, give her character a racket, shake '<he whole thing up, and let the young girl under stand that her fault shall neither be forgiven nor forgotten. A -young" girl, did you say? all the better for that; her heart will break the sooner; has she a mother? all the better again; wring the woman's heart till the blood oozes from her eyes with the bitter tears. Public exhibi tion will have a good effect on the girl, the "young girl," and teach her a lesson. No matter if she hath suffered the pains and shame for months; no matter if she has been at death's door while despair and anguish have lacreated he poor tender heart. No matter if she has stolen out to a little grave in silent night time and drenched it with her tears. No matter if some gay young man of fashion has won her affections and wrecked her young life?no matter if the world has partly forgotton her cne sin?for she was a young girl; dig up the bones, uncoffin the skeleton, parade the sin, hang out a red flag, and say "here it is again," come and see?and don't forget the young girl. Yonder she goes, run and tell her "we have found you out.' The sad smile which had begun to creep over her young face must be driven back into her soul again, and the fountain of her tears be opened. Oh, the in humanity of man!?Monongahela Bepublican. A Tennessee preacher, clad In a night shirt, straw hat and con siderable dignity, climbed a lightning rod during bis sleep, End mounted the roof of the court house. An attempt was made to stop his flight by some one grab bing his shirt, but the garment parted and the next day the white souvenir was secured by a young lady, who will make it the cen terpiece of a crazy quilt. A curious will is to be placed on record in Louisville. It was written by the young woman w>o poisoned herself with laudanum I in such a sensational way recent ly. In the last agonies of death the girl had scrawled her parting injunctions to her friends in this world, on the pillow with a dull pencil. This pillow case is to be regularly recorded and filed. TIT FOR TAT.: What the Governor of Oregon Said to the GOVERNOR OF THE UNITED STATES. Portland, Oregon, May )3. ? The following telegraphio cor; respondence to-day passed be tween Secretary of State Ores ham and Governor Ponnoyer: Washington, D. C.. May 8. Oov. Sylvester Pennoyer, Salem, O: Apparently reliable reports in dicate danger of violence to Chinese when exclusion act takes effect, and the President earnest ly hopes you will employ all law ful moans for their protection in Oregon. (Signed) W. Q. ORESHAM. Governor Pennoyer immediately sent the following reply: Salem, Oregon, May 3. If. Q. Oresham, Washington, D. (', I will attend to my business; let the President attend to his. (Signed) Sylvester Pennoyer, Governor. Governor Pennoyer is a Demo crat, but is not very fond of the President. After the above cor respondence he said to a reporter: "The Gresham telegram is an insult to Oregon. I will enforce the laws of the State and the President should enforce the laws of Congress. It comes with poor grace for the President to ask me to enforce tho State law, while he without warrant sus pends the exclusion act."
