BOWMAN IS NEW CHAIRMAN.
HE IS ONE OF THE BEST KNOWN
YOUNG MEN IN WAYNE COUNTY
AND IS ABLE SUCCESSOR TO
ALONZO GARDNER.
PRIMARY HELD FEB. 10TH.
An Earlier Date Was Considered, But
It Was Finally Agreed That the
Event Should Be Held Later
Resolutions. The campaign cigar and tho prac
tice of vote buying were tabooed, new
officers elected and (he date for the
primary election set. thi morning
hen the new Wayne county republi
can central oemmittee met at tho
- T
court house for the purpose of organ
ization.
1j. S. Bowman of Hagerstown, and
one of the best known young men in
the county was elected county chair
man to succeed A. M. Gardner, who
for several years faithfully served his
party in this capacity. Richard Uenn
of this city was chosen as vice-chairman
and Kdwnrd F. Warfel, a well
Known local newspaper man, was elec
ted secretary, lie succeeds Judge . j
C. Converse, who while secretary of the
committee mado a splendid record for
himself. William Plui.imer was elect
ed treasurer. The executivo board
was appointed this afternoon.
The central committee unanimously
adopted a rule which provides against
nny candidate "treating" or offering
money to voters. Any candidate vio
lating this rule will be punished by
having his name scratched from the
ticket. This rule is received by the
numerous candidates as a God feud
and there is little chance of any of
them violating it. The only ones who
will suffer from the enactment of this
vule. is that class of human leaches
who make a practice of living off of
men who are running for public offi
ces. It was unanimously decided by the
committee to hold the primary elec
tion on Monday, February 10. It was
suggested by one committeeman that
the date for this primary be set for
Monday February 3, but it was decid
ed that this date would be too early.
The following is the "anti-treat and
anti-vote buying" rule adopted by the
committee:
"The use of money or other things
of value, directly or indirectly, in any
manner, for the purposa of influencing
or with the intent to influence, voters
in this primary election, and all "treat
ing" by candidates is prohibited.
"Any candidate who shall, directly
or indirectly, either by himself or
through others, hire or employ nny
person to work for him at the polls
on election day, or who shall, directly
or indirectly, bv the use of money or
other things of value, or by the prom
ise of any reward, money or thing of
value whatsoever, attempt to influ
ence or induce anyone to vote for him
i ..i t . .
or who snau. during nis canvass, re
port, to the common practice of "treat
ing voters, is horehy declared ineli
gible as a nominee tor any office at
euch primary.
"And. any candidate who shall use
any such method or means as aoove
et forth shall thereby forfeit his right
to become a nominee for any office at
such primary, even though he shall
receive a plurality or majority of the
votes cast; and in such event the can
didate receiving the next highest num
ber of votes and who has not violated
any provision of this rule, shall be
and become the nominee for such of
fice. "This committee shall determine all
questions arising under this rule, or
the violation thereof, and the decision
on finding of this committee shall be
conclusive.
"Each candidate to ho voted for in
this primary, in consider. -u ion of hav-'
lug his name punted upon tho ballot,
must ive his assent -,o this rule, in
writing, and agre to be bound by" its
provisions."'

BULLETIN.
Berlin, Jan. It. The police vnis
morning acted as mounted guards in
all the principal street., and began
dispersing the socialists who have bet n
protesting against the refusal of uni
versal suffrage. The pit nation is seri
ous. Croat crowds shouted their
abuse at Chancellor Von Buelow, who
recently curtly refused to grant the
right of suffrage. One hundred cas
ualties have occurred, over twenty peo
ple, bein gseriously injured. . It is re-

streets of this city.
Berlin, Jan. 13. The determination
of the socialists to secure direct uni
versal suffrage, combined with their
indignation against Chancellor Von
Buelow's curt declaration refusing
their demand gave rise Sunday to an
unusual scene and a monster popular
demonstration accompanied by disor
ders in the streets of the Prussian cap
ital, in which 40.000 organized social
ists paraded while 30,hm sympathizers
from time to time actively joined iu
the manifestations.
One of the most remarkable features
of today'j uprising was the number of
women who engaged in the demonstra
tion, and they appeared even more
earnest in their activity than the men.
The authorities -tooji the sternest
measure to prevent disorders and the
strictest precautions to protect the As
sembly Public Building and Prince
Von Buelow's residence against the
outbreak of fury.
Groups in the streets were dispersed
in the most vigorous manner and the
collision between processions of man-
ifestants and the police resulted in the
injury of a considerable number of the
demonstrators, but so far as is known
no fatalities occurred in this city. The
police refrained from making arrests
except in cases of extreme violence.
The movement extends throughout
Prussia, where the socialists aro ex
ceptionally numerous. Reports re
ceived from other cities, however, do
not indicate that the demonstrations
there were accompanied by violence.
Notwithstanding the police warning
tnat repressive measures would be ap
plied, many thousand socialists gather
ed in the morning at the 0tO local
headquarters of the various districts
of the capital and thence proceeded in
groups, singing revolutionary songs,
toward the eight halls in the city
where mass meetings had been an

while the environs of ttie imperial pal
ace, with the square in front, were
closed to the public. Squads of police,
both on foot and mounted, patroled the
central thoroughfares.
The socialists showed great determi
nation in their attempt to hold pro
cessions, although the police made en
ergetic endeavors to prevent this. Long
before the hour of noon the time fixed
to begin the meetings, all the halls
were completely packed and the police
drew up in force around the doors to
hold the crowds in check.
Resolutions favoring universal suf
frage and a secret ballot were adopted
by acclamation, after which the audi
ences streamed into the streets. The
police immediately attempted to dis
perse the throngs, which showed an
evident intention to march in proces
sion toward ,the palace square. In
most cases the processions were soon
broken up. the police displaying the
utmost energy.
DOG WITH HUMAN
INTELLIGENCE DIES.
Hagerstown, Ind , Jan. 13. Jere
miah E. Myers, a big stock rair
and shipper had a valuable Scotch
collie dog to die. The dog was
valuable because of its almost hu
man intelligence in herding and
driving stock from one point to an
other, often saving the labor of two
or three men. Mr. Myers could
send the dog to guard a cross-road
until the stock passed. The owner
had been offered large sums of
money for him bv stockmen but
could never be induced to part with
the animal.
