‘THE SUN FOR 1881.
Everybody reads The sun. x n ti e
editions of this newspaper throughout
the year to conic everybody will find ;
1. All the world’s news, so presented
. that the render will get the greatest
amount of information with the least un
profitable expenditure of time and eve
1 sight. The Sun long ago discovered the
; golden incur, between redundant fulness
t and unsatisfactory brevity.
> 11. Much of that sort of news which de
) pends less upon Its recognized Importance
•ih .n upon its interest to mankind. From
j morning to morning The Sun prints a
i continued story of the lives of real men
s and women, and of their deeds, plans
t loves, hates, and troubles. This story Is
' more varied and more interesting than any
r romance that was ever devised. J
- HI. Good writing in every column, and
r,freshness, originally, accuracy, and de
i corum in the treatment of every subject
3 IV. Horeetc mmenl. The Sun’s habit
> is to speak out fearlessly about men and
. {things.
J! V. Equal candor in dealing with each
• political pm ty, and equal readiness to
commend what is praiseworthy or to rc
| buke what is blamable in Democrat or
Republican.
I VI. Absolute independence of partisan
{organizations, but unwavering loyalty to
j true Democratic principles. The Sun be
lieves that the Government which the
Constitution gives us Is a good one to
keep. Its notion of duly is to resist to t s
usmost power the efforts of men iu the
c Republican party to set up another form
of government in place of that which
exits. The year 1881 and the years im
e mediately following will probable decide
this supremely important contest. The
Sun believes that the victory will be with
the people as against the Rings for monop
. oly, the Rings lor plunder, and the Rings
for imperial power.
Our terms are as follows:

| IHE MINERS OF OEOBOEB CREEK.
' Who can any that miicrs are not men,
Wherever they are found?
Who risk their liven to get the wealth
Tirnl lies beneath the ground ?
And where will you find men,
Who will together closer slick,
Than those who make their living
In the mines on Georges Creek f
First let me speak of those who live
In good old Frostburg town:
A belter class of minors
In this country can't be found.
Their hearts are always open
To the poor ones of the land ;
They’re an honor and a blessing
To the State of Maryland,
i And then comes Lonaconing,
| With her hardy sons of toil :
1 A better class of fellows
Never worked beneath the soil;
They krow how to use the shovel,
The sledge, the wedge, and pick;
Because you sec they work in mines
Along the Georges Creek.
There’s the Shaft, Ocean and Midland, y
Hoffman and Pompcy, too ;
And those between old ’Coney
And the railroad—B. &O.
Take them altogether,
They are solid to a man.
And their names have spread far and near
Throughout this mighty land.
In conclusion, just a word now,
Before I leave the stage,
Concerning all you miners
Without regards to age:
Both foreigners and country born,
United firmly stick,
And have the world to know
You’re solid men on Georges Creek.
Chas. Sullivan.
THE “ COMMERCIAL ” BLACK LEO
DEFINITIONS.
DEFINED BY CAP. SHINE.
What are blacklegs? Let scholais say;
Dig out your roots, give L. fair play;
He’s published wide his definitions
As gospel trulhs’among those Grecians,
Who are deerading Meyersdalo.
He says blacklegs themselves possess :
Straight up, straight down, and nothinglcss
As for straight up I have my fears
Since L. built too much on piers,
Despising terra flrma.
Straight down might do since degradation
Is the climax of their station ;
L’s Plutocratic ostentation
Shall then succumb to gravitation
Whene’er those piers oblique.
Possess themselves! their manhood’s gone
They’d now he thankful for a bone ;
They arc too poor to think a thought,
Hence for a smile arc sold and bought,
More cheaply than John Chinaman.
Go view thy woik, chief archi’ect,
You’ll doubtless gain some thin respect;
Some blackleg’s wives shall thee disdain
As pseudo-friend and starched chicane ;
"Facts are things that winna ding.”
Blacklegs arc bold and never cringe,
Just like a door that needs a binge;
They need some one to give them motion
Who will in turn exact devotion
To pay for auctioneering them.
Judas was a blacklegger, too;
Bold and intrepid just like you
He strove to please high priests and Jews ;
Then sold himself, coat, pants and shoes,
With all their appurtenances.
Judas, like others I could name,
Was brought t. grief, remorse and shame;
He served his country, talked sweet to those
Who were progression’s greatest foes.
Then ultimately suicided.
L. says they want one-huudred more;
Perhaps you’ll teach them rule of four;
Your troughs too small for what you own ;
Besides they’re nearly skin and bone,
And fit for mprtumorcaiis.
New, L. don’t fret and gel half m r d,
Nor swear by kraut that I'm too bad;
Thy definitions you should correct;
Then by degrees you’d gain respect
Among whitelegs and sober folks.
Thy innuer dos indicate
Disease of brain or crazy pate ;
Blacklegs, 1 swear, are common trash,
Who feed on tilth and meanest hash
And would rob Rlggy at her trough.
Blacklegs are Unitois everywhere;
Their presence putrefies the air ;
Let Clearfield tell her tales of woo,
Then dare to say it was not so
By usual exaggeration.
Blacklegs arc cowards, mean and vile;
They use the kiss and Judas smile ;
So wonder not why conscience chides;
Divine the cause of suicides —
The frequent exeunt of traitors.

“What is London Blend T
•AISTSW e s.
London Blend, is prepared' and. imported from the
London market. It is the result of a iifetim e expericnee
in the most critical tea market in the world— London. It
has given satisfaction to thousands in the old country,
because it possesses in a. superlative degree the i/a a titles
that please the true lover of Tea—strength, aromatic fa
vor and healthful ness.
In England the consumption of Tea is four time** great
er than In America.
WH V ?
Because they use Teas exactly similar to Hitchins
Bros. ’ London Blend.
London lllend In a Trademark adopted by llitchins
Bros, to protect the consumer from base imitations of their
celebrated I'ea,
If your neighbor tells you he drinks London Blend
aud it is like “oldcountry Tea,” it is Hitchins’ Tea he is
talking about.
London lllend has been inf rod need into America only
six mouths, and already its popularity is so great that it is
being imitated and copied.
Itisbecause an article isgood thaiit is counterfeited
One trial of Ififehins' Loudon lllend will establish its
reputation.
Hitchins’ London Blend is the true
English Breakfast Tea of London.
It has the richness of coffee and the pure Chinese favor.
London Klcnd is a mixture of garden growth Teas.
London Blend is wholesome, pare and delicious, be
cause it is a. harmonious combination of many favors.
London Blend is MODERATE IV PRICE BECAUSE
IX 18 PURE and in its natural condition, without useless
labor or manipulation to make It look nice.
Don't bay tea at a high price because it looks well,
but buy it to drink. When you bay Hitchins’ London
Blend 'you pay only for Us drinking qualities.
Hitchins* London Blend is a belter drink than can be
produced from any single tea.
From tlic New York Tribune , October 29th, 1878.
“The Chinese minister, Chin Lan Pin, told a delega
tion of ten merchants that—
Pure leas arc not only BETTER but €HEAP£R|than

Grand Jur” Report.
Couubkland, Jan. 12,1881.
To the Honorable, the Judges of the Circuit
Court of Allegany County;
THE Grand Jury respectfully represent
that they have examined all the wit
nesses brought them, 122 in number; have
carelully weighed ail tire testinuny pre
sented for their consideration, from winch
they have made 80 presentments, upon
which 71 indictments have been found.
They have found a number of indictments
for vioisiion of the license laws of the
Slate. From the evidence before them
they are satislled that in some instances
these violations, f.r which indictments
have been found, may have occurred
through the 'gnorancc ol I lie parlies of
fending, but ns the evidence of such vio
lations was plain, the jury did not feel
warranted in dismissing tie so cases on
account of sue! ignorance.
A ease wherein certain citizens of the
county are under suspicion ol haviug com
mitted a very serious crime, Ims lieon
brought to the attention of Hie iury.
They have carefully sifted a'l the lesti
mo.iy in the; case brought before them and
have used every means in their power to
secure further evidence. They have been
unable to secure siitllcient evidence to
warrant them in finding a true hill against
the licensee, although then, remains in the
minds of the Jury a strong presumption
of their guilt ami the jury hope that the
authorities will he able to S"cure tucli lur
tber evidence ns will enable the next
grand jury to bring the offenders to jus
tice.
The jury have visited the almshouse and
jail. They find the almshouse in good
condition and the inmalcs generally well
cared for. I here are 28 mates, 31 funnies,
10children,transient 3; total, 12 .umates
In the almshouse. We recommend that
more furniture lie provided The jail is
in excellent conditi oi, the inmates well
cared for and even t ing clean and in
gooil older. Wc find the courthouse, in
a.I its dej artmenle, in good condition and
c.canly.
Hav.ng attended to all matters bieught
1 before them, the jury rcspectful.y ark to
be discharged. W. 11. LIiFEVRE,
