NATIONAL WORLD’S W, s C. T. U. MEETS ‘ (1 Philadelphia, the patriotic heart of *“ our great Republic was recently the s - seat of two great conventions, that ot s the World’s and the National Wom " Cn’s Christian Temperance Fnion. It was most appropriate that these two ( groat conventions should meet in this y ; historic city to proclaim to the na v - tions of the world, freedom from the ° greatest enemy ot home, of happiness 1 and of prosperity, "the drink evil.'* ■ United in the World’s W. C. T. F. J, are forty-two countries —a white rib lv bon league of nations, twenty-seven .. of which were represented by dele gates to this great convention. Atect ings were held in the Chambers, W\- lie .Memorial Presbyterian and the Arch Street Methodist churches, the r Academy of Alusio and the Bellevuc -- Strafford Hotel. .Miss Anna A. Gordon. . National President, was also elected World’s President of the W. C. T. F. s Many of the oversea’s delegates r a mained over from the World’s con - i rent ion. to address the National body.

Wright. 1 of Canada: Aliss Norville, of South ! America, and a score of others. The delegates from these various coun tries all emphasized the fact, that their people back home are closely studying the effect of prohibition in America. The representatives were instructed to got facts, not hearsay, when they came to this country. Aliss Gordon, in her annual udd:/ss. said Iceland. Finland and the United States already have National Prohibi tion. and Norway and Canada are al most there, while New Zealand and f Scotland with a score more of coun - tries are in prohibition campaigns. - While the prohibition amendment ha: 2 I in force less than three years, i! - has justified the hopes of those who i have toiled to bring about its adop c (inn. There are violations of the law. Chut in suite of tins the benefits of i ’prohibition are universally aeknowl ‘ edged. Evidence has accumulated on 1 every hand to prove that prohibition f has promoted public health, public - happiness and industrial efficiency. 1 Good music, snlendid speeches ami • sympathetic audiences made the even ■ ing meetings most inspiring.

Sht> gave statistics after sla i Dstles to prove that jails and alms b hot)si s have been emptied of inmates, that crime has •><>< n lessened, disease . baffled and the death rate diminished J ' tinder prohibition.

LAW Sweeping changes in the terms o elected office-holders will be in effec at the next general flection which wH he next November. All county am f 'state officers elected will hold term: e for three years instead of two or si; 1 years as the case may be. In Carroll county next November 1 a Sheriff, State's Attorney, Count) ' Commissioner. State Senator, Count) • Treasurer, County Surveyor, thrci ■ judges of the Orphans’ Court, and livi ’ members of the House of Delegate: ’ will be chosen. This means the electioi of fifteen public office-holders in Car . roll county. A number of these officer; - under the old law had only a twi i year term but under the revised Star; - Statute, these offices will be filled foi - three years or until 1026 when tin - lirst election under the "fewer elec tions/' law will really be held. All ■ two-year-term office holders will holt: - over from 1 y 2r> until 1926 when the . term of office will he increased to foui l years instead of onlv two years. Under the revised law. there will be no county or State two-year-term ■ offices. All candidates elected to hold • public office will he in tor a minimum • term of four years, and extending in ■ some cases, such as judges of tht i courts, to a 15 years term. lu Carroll county :he following offi cers will affected: Sheriff. State's At torney, County Commissioners, Coun ty Treasurer. County Surveyor, Judges of the Orphan's Court. State Senatoi and members of the House ot Dele gates. Congressional elections are neces sary every two years, and starting in 1!>26 there will he -lections only in ; congressional years or when a I’resi -1 dent is elected. Presidents are elected , every four years and all Congressional elections come in even years. Tht "fewer elections” law will do # away 1 wtih the yearly elections and win make elections, whether county, stati or national, every 2 years, coming in the years with even numbers. There ■ will be no elections in l'J27, 1929, 1931 etc. Starting in 1926, all of the county two-year-term offices will he changed i to four years and the next county ■ election after 1926 will come in lU3O ! The only offices to he filled in 102) will ItC president, six Representatives and one I’. S. Senator. All state elections will he held 'quadrennially, the first of which will lie in 192(5. This will simplify the election tangle in Maryland ;o a large extent. At present, only those familial with the various election laws of this . State are able to state off-hand just when anv particular term expires, ev en in his own county. I'nder the new law, all of the office-holders will g<: . out of office at the same time and theii successors elected at the same time every four years. A Governor and Attorney General I will be elected at the 1923 election for a term of three tears. This will cans* the short term of the Governor to ex pire in 1926 when the first of the “few er elections" will be held and then the . State executive, together with all oili er state officers, is elected for a term of four vears. With <he “fewer elections” law in effect there will he elections only ev ery two years and will run in llif . following manner starting with 1926: election of congressional, state am county ticket in 1926; election of pres ‘ idential and congressional ticket ir 1926; elect in of congressional, state I and county ticket in 1930: election oi | presidential and congressional tiekel ■ in 1932. etc. This will make the nat ional election fall in a year when th< unit State officers to he elected ar the six representatives in congress ' and the senator. Thus, election years I will he termed either “state and conn I ty" or “presidential.” FATHER AfcGITGAVS MESSAGE. .

Nov. 26, —Clinging v to their wrecked automobile after it 4 had been tossed upon the pilot of a ._ freight engine. Elmer McKee and Aliss Helen Morrison, of Harrisville, were J carried 400 feet today before the train i had slowed sufficiently for them to [. jump off. Neither was hurt, n The accident occurred when the n machine was caught between the s safety gates at the Broad street grade n crossing ot the Bessemer & Lake Erie e Railroad. AieKee saw the engine ap (t preaching, hauling a heavy string of o freight cars. but. apparently, he be ll lieved he could clear the track before the lowering gates would cut off his progress. He passed under the first gate, but the one on the other side 0 of the tracks obstructed Jiis path. 0 He was unable to go oithermaekward o or forward. " The pilot of the engine crashed into 9: the rear of his machine and lifted if " .several feet into the air. It then alighted on the pilot and stuck there. The engineer was unable to stop be " cause of a down grade at this point. " He applied (lie emergency brakes, but " the train went 400 feet before its o speed had been reduced enough to en able the frightened pair to leap from their ear. The remarkable escape of " AieKee and Aliss .Morrison is attribu o ted to the fact that, while the rear of 0 tiu> car received a smashing blow " from the engine, the front part, where " Guy were seated, was only bent.
