JT. BENSON OOEJI, Editor. FROSTBURG, MD. - - - DEC. 2, 1911. THE LAW’S INJUSTICE. From Roderic Clary, City Commis sioner of Cumberland, the Journal has— 1, A copy of Section 98 of the City Charter directing the County Super visors of Election to provide the ma chinery for holding the city election on the 16th day of May, 1910, the cost thereof to be paid by the County Com missioners, the same to be refunded to said County Commissioners by the City of Cumberland. 2, A certificate from Angus Ireland, Clerk of the County Commissioners stating that “since the Commission Form of Government has been adopted by the City of Cumberland, it is speci ally provided in the Charter of said City that the election expenses shall be borne by the County Commission ers, and that the County Commission ers shall be re-imbursed from the funds of the City of Cumberland. And I further certify that the above provisions have been complied with.” It will be observed, however, that Section 98 provides for one election only —that of May 16, 1910, and that Mr. Ireland’s certificate, though gen eral in terms and tone, can cover but the one election specifically provided for in Section 98. Now, then, how about the election in 1912, concerning which Section 98 is silent ? If the City Commissioners choose to refund , they can probably do so. If they do not so choose, the law, enacted by some State Senator from Cumberland within the last 20 years will stand. That law imposes upon the county the burden of paying the city's election expenses. It remains the duty, therefore, of the Allegany delegation-elect of the next Legislature to repeal that portion of the law and re-enact it so that the expenses of the city elections should fall upon the city alone. And while the delegation is reform ing the law in that particular, it should restore to the County Election Supervisors the authority to advertise registrations and elections in news papers outside of as well as in Cum berland—a law also the offspring of some misrepresentative of the county in the State Senate within the last 20 years. As a moving-picture the law, as it stands, exhibits the city with one hand in the county’s pocket raking out its election expenses, and with the other at the throat of the press out side of Cumberland, declaring—no of ficial registration or election news to you except through our agencies and to our profit! Did George 111 ever go further ? GET THE HOSPITAL. The Town Council will meet next Monday evening, and the one sure proposition which should go before that body is— the hospital! An institution of that class has long been needed here —never more so than during this fall. There is everything—every consid eration in its favor, and, while we think of the point, it should be built for more than local accommodation. The town has the healthful environ ment, the taintless water, and stands level with that layer of oxygen which Spurgeon declared “is the next best thing to the grace of God for a preacher.” Hence, many patients from abroad would be attracted by the town’s naturally healthful endowments. The proposal should be “put up” to Council strongly as possible, and thence go to the Legislature officially endorsed in the most trenchant language. Factory Removed to Frostburg. James Kenney, wholesale tobacco dealer, East Union street, has pur chased the good-will, stock and facto ry equipment of the Hyndman (Pa.) Cigar Company, and the establish ment, now located in Frostburg, will be operated under the direction and supervision of S. E. Fisher, of Lan caster, Pa. The latter gentleman is an expert in tobacco-leaf manipulation and de velopment. He has worked in cigar manufacture over 20 years, and is up to-date in all phases of leaf-tobacco handiwork. He is now purchasing leaf and other raw-material requisites, and will soon arrive in Frostburg— here to make his home. Meanwhile, Mr. Kenney, with head quarters at 143-145 East Union street, is in better position than ever to pro mote and expand a business already profitable and prosperous. Later —Mr. Kenney booked his first order for manufacture yesterday (Fri day) morning—5,000 stogies, from Miss Lelia Chamberlin, Slalersville, Rhode Island. Chance for Equity. The Jeannette (Pa.) Dispatch , John H. Trescher, a native of Allegany county, publisher, makes this an nouncement : “The season of long sausage stories —not long stories but long sausage—is again at hand. To insure publication, and as a guarantee of good faith, at least one yard of sausage must accom pany the story.” Somewhere to the right, left, this, or other side of Jeannette, a sausage 96 feet long was reported the other day. If the story reaches the Dispatch it is entitled to two yards, so that it can send one yard, postage prepaid, to the Journal. | The Cliurdies. At the Congregational Church, Rev. T. E.

Proposed to Open as Many of Them as Practicable During Winter For Young Folks’ Dances to Keep Them Off the Streets. Jersey City hatched a new idea in regard to municipal reform. The problem of keeping girls off the street at night has long confronted large cit ies. Jersey City, with its large ele ment of foreign population, thinks it has solved the question. The Jersey City idea is this: Once a week the community of young people round about the public school of their district are invited to attend a dance at the schoolhouse. The city educa tional authorities play host, and young people, some of whom would other wise be haunting cheap dance halls, are invited to attend. The floor of the school assembly hall is swept and waxed, and from 8 until 10:30 o’clock the dance goes forward with good music. E. A. Ransom, secretary of the Soci ety For the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, was entertaining some friends in his home when John Warren, attor ney for the Society For the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, remarked that, in his opinion, it was a civic waste to close the schools to the public as soon as lessons were done. The schools be longed to the people, said Mr. War ren, and should be utilized for public purposes other than the teaching of the three R’s. Mr. Ransom thought so, too. and consequently the matter was put be fore the school board, which suggested that a committee be formed of persons interested in such a movement. Mr. Warren and Mr. Ransom organized the school extension committee. “Though the scheme is far from complete,” said Mr. Warren, “never theless we have passed the experi mental stage. Our plans are to open the schools for men’s civic clubs two nights.a week, for women and girls’ clubs two nights a week, for a public lecture one night a week and for a dance one night a week.” Mr. Warren was asked if the scheme of schoolhouse clubs had been tried elsewhere. “Yes,” he said; “it has had a marked success in Rochester, for instance. But as far as I know the idea of mu nicipal dances is original. So far we have only held dances in school 32, but next winter we expect to extend the custom to all the schools where practicable throughout the city. This can only be done with the aid of the board of education, which, I may add, is heartily in accord with our plans.” 1 THE HALL OF FAME. 1 x JAMES KENT—Law writer X ¥ and jurist; author of Kent’s Com- ¥ x mentaries. % ¥ Born Philip- J> X led law and, <1 ¥ after serving three terms in New ¥ ¥ York state assembly, moved to ¥ X New York city and became pro- ¥ ¥ fessor of law in Columbia col- ¥ ¥ lege.

The Elks’ Memorial Service, to be held to-morrow (Sunday) evening, at 8% o’clock, in the Frostburg Opera House, promises to be an impressive occasion. The Memorial Committee—Messrs. W. E- G. Hitchins, O. R. Rice, N. T. Hocking, Peter Lammert, and G. Dud Hocking, were particularly fortunate in securing the Hon. Byron W. King, Ph. D., of Pittsburg, Pa., to deliver the address. He is intellectually equal to great occasions and as an elocutionist one of the most artistic in the country. The order of exercises is as follows: Selection—“ Sacred Heart” Arr. by G. D. Barnard Orchestra Hymn —“Nearer, My God, to Thee” Audience (the audience is requested to join in singing) Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee, E’en tho’ it be a cross that raiseth me; Still all my song shall be, nearer, my God, to Thee Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee. Tho’ like a wanderer, the sun gone down, Darkness be over me, my rest a stone; Yet in my dreams, I’d be, nearer, my God, to Thee, Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee. There let the way appear, steps unto heaven, All that Thou sendest me, in mercy given; Angels to beckon me, nearer, my God, to Thee, Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee.

STREETTS 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. J. M.

( President Taft and former presi- < dent Roosevelt are now expected to be ] present at the Maryland Week Ex- 1 position in Baltimore, December 4 to i 9, together with Governor Wilson, of New Jersey, and many Governors from western and southern States, and more than 30 presidents of railroads 1 in the South. ] Every afternoon there will be dem- i onstrations in the scientific packing i of fruits by an expert brought to Balti- < more from the celebrated Hood River 1 Valley, Oregon. I One of the very interesting features of the instructive program will be the - talk of Will B. Otwell, of Illinois, who . will tell the younger folks “The Story - of My Farmer Boys.” Mr. Otwell has - 40,000 boys working under his direc- ( tion in the United States in corn-grow- , ing contests. He especially invites : the boys and girls to hear his talk. The ladies of the Women’s Federa tion will have committees to welcome the wives and daughters of farmers. A room will be set aside for them es pecially in the big Fifth Regiment Armory where the exposition is held, ■ and the Arundell Club will be open to them. The program of the reception committee includes automobile rides for the ladies visiting from out of town. There will be some fine musical features, especially in the evenings including singing. Thomas McNulty, ' late independent candidate for Sheriff, has consented to sing one evening. The Musical Art Club will also be asked to sing. Special invitations are being sent to all members of the State Assembly to be present at the exposition during the week with their families. The invitations are extended by Governor Crothers. The visiting Governors from the southern and western States will be met at the station by the Fifth Regi ment, and with its band playing “Maryland, My Maryland,” will es cort the distinguished visitors to the Armory, where the exposition will be held. Hundreds of Maryland boys in the corn contest in this State will have their products on exhibition, and there is a keen rivalry for the handsome prizes offered for the best exhibits made by them.

Pfeiffer, rendered appro priate and pleasing selections. The Church was filled to its utmost capacity, and the offering, which was for the benefit of Western Maryland Hospital, Cumberland, was of corres ponding proportions. Social. A birth-day came to Mrs. Milton W. Race, of this place, Monday evening, and over a dozen masqueraders sur prised her. But she responded hand somely with most hospitable enter tainment.
