FROSTBURG, MD. - - MAY 20, 1911.
THE EXEMPLARY BUSINESS MAN.
In an eloquent address to the home
comers at Towson, this State, Wed
nesday, Judge T. J. C, Williams, of
the Juvenile Court, Baltimore, and a
brother of the justly-distinguished ex-
Judge Ferdinand Williams, of this
county, paid an extraordinarily high
compliment to “The Press,” the
country newspapers particularly. In
part, he said—
If it were not for the newspa
pers this nor any other free nation
could exist. They are the hope,
guardian and comfort of the peo
ple, and without them we would
not amount to anything as a free
country.
Without irreverence the Journal
will characterize this observation as
“a faithful saying, and worthy of all
acceptation.”
And coming closer to the point,
generally and locally, every publisher
knows that the mainstay of his enter
prise is the, patronage he enjoys from
advertisers.
But too often—many times too of
ten, the business man, sagacious in
everything else of less importance,
forgets the really public-spirited and
patriotic support he owes to the great
est and to him the nearest of all lib
erty’s bulwarks —that at his door, the
local newspaper.
The Journal holds, therefore, that
the business men’s mere selfish ques
tion —“will advertising pay me direct
ly by bringing custom to my work
room, or my salesroom?” is not the
crucial test.
Rather it is this —“is it not my duty
to buy and pay for space in the local
newspaper, patronizing it as an insti
tution indispensable to the moral,
civic, educational, business and patri
otic welfare of the community in
which I live?”
In short, in the case of a local
newspaper, should not every business
man in town subordinate the merely
selfish consideration of direct returns
to the larger one of helping an insti
tution dedicated to the promotion, ac
commodation and exploitation of the
town’s general good?
If the direct returns come in, no
body will be gladder than the news
paper people.
If they do not seem to come the
moral effect is undeniable—the adver
tiser is an enterprising citizen, and
as a member of the town’s best direc
tory —the local newspaper, he will at
tract the commendation—openly and
silently, of many, and the favorable
notice of all.
The immediate moral of this story
is—business men of Frostburg, adver
tise in the Journai,!
A GREAT CHANGE.
U. S. Senator C. W. Watson, former
president of the Consolidation Coal
Company, surprised many people by
offering a proposition to put soft coal
on the free list.
Monday he went a step further and
introduced in the Senate a bill to
amend the immigration laws by in
creasing the tax on aliens entering
this country at $4 per head, under the
act of February 20, 1907, to SIOO per
head.
Just what the purpose of the free
coal proposal is the Journal has not
seen.
But that of the immigration amend
ment is stated as designed to stop the
influx of foreign pauper labor and
hence to prevent this element from
supplanting the American working
man, a virtue that the exponents of
protection always claimed for such
tariffs as that imposed under the
Payne-Aldrich Act.
It will also make the foreigner pay
the tax, and to check the tendency of
foreigners to spend their savings in
the old country.
That there is some sound logic in
all this is sure, but how strange it
would have sounded —coming from
high quarters eight years ago.
NEWSPAPER WINNERS.
Sometimes the newspapers do not
win when they “take sides.”
But in the Cumberland instance,
pending several weeks, the result
Tuesday is unquestionably due to the
able and earnest campaign waged by
the two daily papers—the News and
Times.
With undoubtedly heavy odds against
them, to start with, they employed
everything in the way of argument,
persuasion and news to win.
The Journal includes “news,” be- '
cause but for the papers many “point
ers,” printed as they arose, would
have remained unknown.
If, therefore, the papers succeeded
in changing only SS votes from con to
pro, they won!
WANTED—THREE BRAVE MEN.
Cumberland certainly is becom
ing addicted to the voting habit
Cumberland News.
How can Cumberland help it when -
city voting is done at county expense?
By the way, what candidate for
County Commissioner will pledge his
ablest effort to have the next I,egis- ,
lature amend the election law so as to
1, Place the expense of city elec
tions where it belongs—on the city, ]
and— i
2, Authorize county election adver- -
tising in county newspapers outside [
the city as well as inside? ,

HOW IT WORKS.
Somebody in Baltimore said recent
ly that “the Belt Line is the only im-|
provement that will bring relief to the
Pennsylvania railroad.”
And then it occurred that “what
ever brings relief to the railroad”
brings relief to the city.
Same way in Frostburg—whatever
the railroad would do to please the
town would return to please the rail
road.
Reciprocity is a magic word—when
. illustrated by example, and sub
■ limated by experience.
' Ip" BASE- BALL,
f! ■——— fi
[j The National Game as Seen
kj From This Metropolis.

“The message!” cried the scien
tist.
“From ancient Mars, I’m sure.”
And he was not long in doubt
As to what they asked about.
For this is what he soon made
out:
“Say, Frostburg, what’s the
score?”
The “fans” on Mars, no doubt,
think the George’s Creek League is a
go. They reason from what the situ
ation would be if Frostburg, Midland,
Lonaconing and Piedmont were on
Mars.
The Emmitsburg Chronicle express
es wonder “that Emmitsburg no long
er has a base-ball club:”
It is remarked on every side
that in former seasons, with the
exception of a few years, the peo
ple here supported an amateur
nine that more than held its own
with any team with which it
crossed bats.
Perhaps in Emmitsburg, as in
Frostburg, Cumberland, and all along
the Creek, base-ball has contracted a
disease known as “commercialism” —
a disease so inimical to sport that the
two cannot agreeably or successfully
board at the same table.
It was “commercialism” that in
duced Cumberland to side-step the
League proposal, and put a flea in
Lonaconing’s easy ear to do the same
thing.
There is “more money” in the
game—not for the players, but the
stockholders and managers, especially
on holidays, without than with a
league.
Hence, both the players and those
who pay admission fees, altogether
nearly 99 per cent., must yield to the
interest of the little 1 percent, crowd—
this time in Cumberland and Lonacon
ing.
In the House oe Representatives.
House Resolution, No. 150, intro
duced by Mr. Goodwin, of North Car
olina, provides for examination into
all the affairs of the Civil Service
Commission, and—•
Whereas, All the people of the
United States, without regard to
race, nationality, creed, color, sex,
or previous condition of servitude,
are intensely interested in the na
tional game known as base-ball;
and—
Whereas, Thp said national
game of base-ball seems to be
about the only matter of national
importance whose investigation
has not been provided for since
the convening of the 62d Congress,
therefore be it —
Resolved, That the Committee
on Education are hereby required
to inaugurate immediately a thor
ough and searching inquiry into
the operation and manner of con
ducting said national game of base
ball, and to ascertain specifically
the batting averages, hits, errors,
two-baggers, home-runs, assists,
sacrifices, slides, strike-outs, flies,
bunts, fouls, forced runs, and
pop-ups, single and double plays
of each and every individual mem
ber of the American and National
Leagues, and all minor leagues,
including trolley leagues.
In making this investigation the
committee shall have power to
compel the attendance of witness
es, including umpires, and to ex
amine them without administer
ing oaths ; and said committee is
authorized to employ a competent
stenographer while conducting
said examination, and to sit in the
grand-stand of the base-ball park \
during the sessions of the House. .
With 29 other resolutions of investi- 1
gation, introduced at different times ■
by representatives from various
States, Mr. Goodwin’s was “referred 1
to the Committee on Rules and or- ’
dered to be printed.”
The official copy from which the 1
foregoing was taken was sent to the
Journal by Robert McLuckie, of the ’
U. S. Marine Corps, Washington, D. i
C. ,
Heard on Centre street:
“Your husband is something of <
a base-ball fan, isn’t he?”
“ ‘Fan’ doesn’t begin to express
it. Jack is a regular wind-mill.” •

Brevities i
The hoodoo teams'—Cumberland and
Lonaconing, seem to be in the run- ■
ning. If one isn’t playing with the ‘
other, the latter is playing with it. •
So far Cumberland is entitled to the <
Cumberland pennant, transparent cut, '
and automatic meersham. *
The Journal has an interesting
lecture entitled “Mr. Dodge, the Cum- s
berland Umpire,” but it comes too 1
late. If the contributor believes it '
will be seasonable for next week, let 1
the Base-Ball Department of the Great 1
Paper know.
Coming Events
Midland will be here in Frostburg j
this (Saturday) afternoon, and a good j
game is anticipated. All go. s
Cumberland will go to Lonaconing )
this afternoon, but the wireless failed
to state whether “Mr. Dodge, of ,
Harvard, who always delivers a fore- ,
word,” will go too. (

A Corporate Outing.
Mayor and Councilmen were guests
Wednesday nearly all day at the
pumping-station of Alfred Jeffries and
Henry Brode.
After looking over all the springs
and machines, consuming several
hours, Mr. Jeffries, seconded by
Henry, proposed a treat of pure water
from the best water supply to the
Mayor and Councilmen of the best
town in the world.
In support of his motion Mr. Jeffries
said there is at this moment 907,920
gallons of water in the reservoir, or
over 150 gallons for each man, woman
and child in town, and we can afford
to treat the Mayor and Councilmen
when they come to see us.
The motion carried unanimously,
both Alfred and Henry voting for it
with a gusto that surprised even the
Mayor and the other two members of
the Water committee.
While the water from each glass
was disappearing Mr. Jeffries deliv
ered a lecture on the “Healthfulness •
of Clean Water,” and then Henry
Brode arose and declared that “With- •
out Pure Water All Things are Im
pure.”
Councilman Glotfelty said that as
a traveler he had found out much
about water; that there are no less
than three subordinate degrees of the 1
article within his jurisdiction, and af
ter washing with the worst he gener
ally felt worse than before he got out
of bed. “I will always be a stranger
where water is not good,” said he.
William McLuckie said next to pure
air good water is the sine qua non of
a natural condition, because, without i
atmosphere, there can be no water, 1
and a bad atmosphere would mean ’
bad water, also a very undesirable
two-fold condition.
Charles E. Emerick stated that in
speaking of water one should climb the '
comparative-degree step-ladder and ■
be careful always to differentiate each
from its kind—whether good, better or .
Frostburg.
Philip Pfeiffer said there were other ■
waters, too; for instance, navigable
waters, and generally when navigable,
like the C. & O. canal, they are hardly I
fit to float on, mueh less to drink, or .
send each other to the bad place
about.
Alfred Morgan said there was bitter
water, soft water, hard water and soda
water, and a good many people pay 5
cents for one kind and want to be de
clared insolvent on the other. 1
Edward Dufty declared that people i
should not forget the number of eat- s
ables into which water enters as an
elementary ingredient, but the only 1
thing Mr. Dufty could himself re- <
member was the water-cracker. <
The Mayor, John J. Price,, closed s
the discussion by announcing that it *
is now nearly 3 o’clock, and as a final
tribute to water I suggest that none <
of us shall forget that the crowning *
hue of the painter’s art is the water- c
color, and the next thing in the way <
of real enjoyment on a warm day is
the water-cooler.
Coming just one day after the bitter >
contest in Cumberland for and
against both good and bad water, the
Water committee thought it would be
a good thing to close the exercises
with a final drink of Frostburg’s sup
ply direct from the fountain-head,
i The suggestion was adopted.
All standing.
Good-bye, Henry!

STREETT’S
Mother’s Bread:
VERSIFIED
Frostburg’s poet-laureate tasted it during a moment of com
munion with his Muse, and, while jet reeking with inspiration, he
wrote the following tribute to it for us:
The Whiteness and the Lightness and the Pure Rightness of our Bread
Make it a general favorite wherever folks are fed;
If you will try a loaf to-day,
No more will we insist,
For we know that then we’ll have you
On our regular list.
For its flavor and its savor will find favor that is sure;
It makes friends every day because it’s strictly fresh and pure.
