J. BENSOJy on Jin, Editor. FROSTBURG, HD. - APRIL 8, 1911. THE RIGHT COURSE. _ One of our readers complains because we did not mention the office of Road Director as being among the most important to be tilled at the coming election. And he is right. If the people at large paid more at tention to the work done by those officials in different sections of the county they could better determine who, if any, are en titled to re-election.—Cumberland American. If there be anything in this complaint, the plea for “more attention” should he filed with the parties —not “the people.” When parties put up nominees and stump for them for all offices simply be cause they are republicans or democrats, the real issue is completely lost in a con test which finally degenerates into a farce about the size of a hoss-race. As a matter of fact, if there be any science in the business of good-road building, it should be tested by some sort of inquisition like other pre-requis ite eligibilities to civil service. But under the current system of no system it is the duty of the parties first to put up four capable, honest men, and the duty of “the people-at-large,” sec ondly, to elect the better four of the four best nominees. ENCOURAGING. The Journal is glad to see that two very able county papers are discussing the Baltimore-city plan to obtain legisla tive control of the State —the Taney town Record and Ellicott City Times. Referring to the attention given by the Sun and News to a Baltimore (local) squabble, the Recot d says— There could be no more ado made if the situation was one of National significance, instead of applying only to seventh-class Baltimore. But, Baltimore papers are noted for being “local.” No legislative matters are important, in their estimation, that do not relate to “the city;”—what the counties want cuts little figure. And the Times says — The sooner our Baltimore friends learn that Baltimore is a part of the State of Maryland, but not the dominating factor in its progress, the better it will be for all the people of the State. Both quotations go straight to the mark, for both editors are certainly aware that whatever the city loses to the counties in the way of taxation is repaid richly in a big lot of public money which goes back to the city indi rectly, noiselessly, but surely. TAFFY. Before Council Hou. Benjamin A. Richmond, telling of the financial woes of the Cumberland and Western port Electric Railway Company, said “the company lost $28,000 in damage suits aud property loss in one wreck on Grant street several years ago, and that in or der to eliminate the curve that was partly the cause of the wreck, the com pany had to pay the town $4,000 to make an improvement that was for the benefit of the town’s citizens,” and the improvement cost $7,000! It should never be forgotten that it was sophistry akin to this that persuad ed a Council to trade the safe Belt Line for the deadly Grant-street curve. It was this trade that cost the com pany s39,ooo—not the wreck ! If that sum had been expended in building the Belt Line no such wreck would have occurred, no property dam aged, no life lost! Moreover, if the company had felt then as Hon. Ferdinand Williams says it feels now—“that in any matters in which the company and the town have a common interest the only policy to pursue is an amicable, friendly and fail one,” the road would have traversed the town as originally designed and sur veyed But the “improvement” which Mr. Richmond says “was for the benefit of the town’s citizens” was on e forced upon the company by the wreck for the bene fit of the company! That is the long and short of that business ! SHOULD GET TOGETHER. In the course of Hon. B. A. Rich mond’s remarks before Council he said the Union-street paving job was of no benefit to the Electric Railway Company. In Hon. Ferdinand Williams’ address, however, one of the reasons favoring Grant-street paving was—it will be a benefit to town and company; therefore, we are willing to help—by paving inside the rails! The question which staggers is—why is street-paving beneficial to the railway on one street —not so on another ? Election Of Officers. At the recent annual meeting of Cresap Chapter, Daughters of the Amer ican Revolution, officers for current year were elected as follows: Regent—Mrs. Beverly S. Randolph, of Berkeley Springs, West Va. Secretary—Miss Nellie Y. Betz, of Frost burg. Treasurer—Dr. Catharine M. Buell, of Cumberland. Historian—Mrs. George R. Daisy, of Cum berland. Delegate to National Congress, Washing ton, D. C., April 17-22, 1911—Mrs. J. W. S. Cochrane, of Cumberland. Interesting Occasion Anticipated. The debate between the Athenian Literary Society and the Belles Lettres Society, of Beall High School, due yes terday (Friday') evening, grew during the week in promise of an interesting occasion. The resolution was— Resolved, That the United States Senate, as j at present constituted, is a menace to popu lar government. The judges were—A. C. Willison, Su perintendent of Schools for Allegany county; John E. Edwards, principal of Allegany County Academy, and Howard] C. Hill, principal of Allegany High school—all of Cumberland. ,* ORIGINAL POETRY Christ’s Entry Into Jerusalem. Up from Jerusalem, and o’er the plain There comes the cry and—echoes back again— “ Hosanna to our Lord! the Anointed One! Hosanna and praise to David’s Royal Son !” Great multitudes are out in bright array To shout aloud the triumphs of this day ; Children take up the cry and gladly sing— “ Hosanna to our Lord, the coming King 1” And with the breeze comes the triumphant strain — “Behold ! our King and Prophet comes to reign !” What means this tumult ? As we look we see, Coming o’er the hills in silent majesty; Our Lord, surrounded by an eager throng. Seated upon a eolt, he rides along In lowly pomp, by thousands yet unknown, This Man of Sorrows comes into His own. Flowers and palms are strewn along the 1 street; People their garments spread beneath His . feet. Through centuries we still behold that scene— The Coming of the Lowly Nazarene. King of the Jews ! ’twas surely He who came! And yet—no earthly kingdom does He claim; A Higher Throne is where His Province lies; The barren fig-tree mutely testifies His power! Yet they will not believe, And as the Son of God their Lord receive. How short His triumph! Aye, within a week, Their praises cease and His dear life they seek; — To Golgotha’s heights they bear this Holy One — Prophet and King, and God’s Beloved Son ! Saba Roberta Getty. Death of a Priest. The family of William Cronin, 74 Broadway, received Thursday a telegram from Ilchester, this State, conveying in telligence of the death at noon that day of Rev. Father John Cronin, formerly of this place. He had filled two offices in the priesthood during his life—pastor and missionary, but, broken in health, had for some time been on the retired list in one of the Church Homes. He leaves one brother here—William, and one in Cumberland—Patrick. He was here last about six years ago, attending the funeral of his mother. The message named 10 o’clock, this (Saturday) morn ing, as the funeral hour. The Completed Assessment. After six months of continuous work the County Commissioners, as a Board of Control and Review, have completed their work of ascertaining the taxable basis of Allegany county. The assessment last year was $27,500,- 000; this year $36,260,661 —an increase of over 8 millions. The tax rate, last year $1.19, will be reduced to some figure below sl. Some idea of the magnitude of the work done by the Commissioners maybe gleaned from the fact that they inspect ed critically over 30,000 schedules, and recorded the names and property of 15,000 tax-payers. Forgot His Right Name. In a West Virginia town there is fear that a Cumberland man who recently located there will lose his mind from “too much jining.” He took the second degree in a lodge of Knights of Pythias on Saturday night, and next morning, still penitent, he joined the Salvation Army. He thought his troubles were all over then, but not so. About 25 brethren and over 50 sisters grabbed his hands in rejoicing welcome, and never having been in church while he lived in Cumberland, he didn’t know what to make of it. A stranger-friend noticing his aber ration Monday, asked his name. The reply was —“Too.” “ ‘Too’ what?” rejoined the s.-f. “Too Much! They Agreed.

An hae ask—“who so?” An Aye say, bay yeminy, ef yo put et en automobile yo can’t draw et out an spend et. An hae say—“yo bane right. Aye tank so neither.” A Visit From the President. The proceedings of the Baltimore Conference, M. E. Church, Monday morning, were enlivened by a visit from President Taft, who, it is related, “walked in on the Conference aud in a speech both cordial and humerous in tone, relieved the members of the ten sion occasioned by the approach of ad journment.” The committee charged with inviting the President to Conference —Rev. Dr. D. H. Martin, of this place; Rev. Dr. J. W. R. Sumwalt, superintendent of Washington district, and Rev. W. W. Barnes, pastor of church wherein Con ference was held, escorted the chief ex ecutive to the platform and introduced him to the presiding Bishop—Rev. Dr. William F. Anderson. The latter, in presenting President Taft, expressed the hope that the Presi dent would find Congress as “docile, willing and favorable” to his remarks as the congress he was about to address. When the cheering of greeting sub sided and the President could be heard he said in response— It will not become me to say anything of an independent branch of the government, lean make my recommendations, just ae you do from your pulpits, and then follow your example—that is, pray for the best results. The laughter which followed the re-1 mark lasted so long that Bishop Ander-1 son had to rap for order. The President resumed and made a brief though inspiring address. Rev. : Dr. Martin, who, as has been seen, was honored svith the chairman ship of the committee of invitation, speaks of the incident as one of the most 'nteresting of the session. I Fraternal Reception. In addition to item on first page re porting the meeting of the two local Councils of the Jr. O. U. A. M., Fisch er’s Hall, Thursday evening, it can be stated that nearly 200 members were present, and that addresses were also de livered by State Councilor H. L. Men nerick, of Baltimore, and Messrs. F. Brooke Whiting and David A. Robb, of Cumberland. Prominent members of the Order from out of town were Peter C. McFarland, of Lonaconing; Richard Williams, of Midland, and Sylvester Schilling, of Cumberland. The Sick. Alex. Smith, jr., is very sick with typhoid fever at the family home, Loo street.
