prese nt Democratic admlnistntioii has
broken ever pledge whereby Democracy
regineel power It promised to pass laws
repress the great and growing evil of
tri The Democratic Legislature
d i bill to re eem this pledge which
the Democratic convention was ashame d
even tt repeat in this ears platform It
pledged a non partisan administration of
the poi ce department of Baltimore and
to emancipate the force from partisan

the a iice law Is u sham and a fraud It
pleeieo a reduction of State taxes et
Jn the regular session the Legislature was
xtravagant and corrupt beyond prece
tlent and in extraordinary session wasted
money on a partisan census useless to
the Mate but valuable to the Democratic
fatapalgn workers at the taxpayers ex
pense perpetrated a most unfair gerry
mander of Baltimore city districts and
made Itself Infamous by its unconstitu
tional disfranchising election law
Twice It defeateil the corrupt practices
act which it promised to enact Jt prom
ised a non partisan administration of the
public schools and jet promptly so em
powered a partisan Governor that he
forthwith turned out every non partisan
board and put the public schools In ev
ery count upon a political basis
The Republican party which redeemed
oil Its pledges to the people of our State
now gives these new promises which it
will as surely perform-
In the words of our own Declaration of
Illghts we reaffirm that the right of the
people to participate In the legislature is
the best security of liberty and the foun
dation of all free government
And every male citizen having the quali
fications prescribed by the Constitution
ouuht to have the richt of suffrage
Therefore a Republican Legisliture will
repeal our unconstitutional election law
and enact the bill prepired the im
association that formulated the election

It will en ict the corrupt practices bill
prepared by the same organization and

J will adopt a compulsor primar election
law anu maiec uie primaries is m n
has made our general elections
It will bring the local control of the
schools In the counties near to the school
district and et remove It further from
partisan politics
It never legislates in reckless disre

h law to curl and defeat organized
trusts which stltle comp ttlon In trade
and to suppress all combinations which
cr Ue a monopol It passed the onl
Pedenil laws against trusts and In this

We appeal to all good citizens to unite
in defeating the selfish political bosses in
their consplrac begun with the extra
session to perpetuate themselves and
their methods b one sided elections and
to thwart the first purpose of that con
splrac by defeating the election to the
1nited States Senate of the Democratic
leader who dictated the disfranchising
election law to a servile Assemblv Their
victon would again fasten upon our State
the reign of corruption and violence over
thrown In 1S95 and enable them to en
trench themselves for a generation behind
a far worse disfranchising election law
than the jn Amerlcan lav we are pledged
to repeal
If we succeed we will defeat the elec

RICHMOND Vn Aug fi Discussing
the work before the Constitutional Con
vention II D 1 lood who represents Ap
pomattox Count In the bod said today
Without divulging the secret delibera
tions of the Suffrage Committee of which
I am a member I mav sa that sufficient
progress has been made to establish the
fact that the report of the committee will
pncticall disfranchise no white man
No matter whether the right of franchise
be based upon a property or an education ll
qualillcnion or some other qualification
there Is not the slightest chance for a
suffrage clause tint will dlsfrinchlse any
considerable number of white men It
will carr out the Norfolk pledge upon
this point The convention was called
for the purpose first to eliminate the
negro vole to the utmost practicable ex
tent and sccondl to reduce the taxes
and the expenses of operating the gov
ernment If these two objects are ac
complished there Is no combination of
opposing influence that tan defeat the
I use the expression defeat the con
stitution because thero ought to be no
question no hesitation about submitting
the constitution to the people by which
I mean the whole people those qualifies
to vote under the present constitution
Judge Harrison tells me thit If thus sub
mitted It will carr b a thousind major
it in Iredcrick County whereas it will
in his opirlon be defeateel by a thousand
v ctes if submitted to an abridged elector
ate Judge Campbell or Amherst and
various other members tell me that In
thlr counties It will stand a far better
charce of ratification if submitted to the
unabridged rather than the abridged elec
In regard to the reduction of taxes Sir
riood said
Perhaps I should have confined my
remark to a reduction of the expenses
of running the State government But
In this connection I will state I am en
gaged with Judge Harrison nnd some oth
er members in formulating a new scheme
of taxation Our plan is to practically
relieve the people of all State taxes upon
I real and personal property I believe it
can be demonstrated that these classes
I of property real and personal estate need
only bear the burden of taxes for county
and clt or corporation purposes and not
for operating the State government This
would do away with boards of equlllza
tlou and all th it sort of thing and bring
about the result that personal propert
would bear its commensurate share of
taxation with real estate in county and
clt taxation It would result in greatl
reducing the taxation on these classes of
propert In m section It would reduce
it one half
B the proposed sstem 1CX000 would
be taken from the revenues oX the Com
monwealth and in order to make this
up the towns and cities would have to
surrender their right to tax railroads and
other corporations Without increasing
the tax upon these coijiorations there
would be an increase of between JeXlOM
and 5000 on the revenues of the Ftate
The counties and municipalities would
lt have to surrender the right to im
pose license taxes upon the sale of Jiquor
and upon all similar licenses The differ
ence can be made up b turning over to
the State all the tax upon railroads and
other corporations and b increasing the
liquor license tax This liquor traffic will
stand a much heavier tax than the pres
ent one

made Ufeon him Chandler and his con
duct durirg the time he was Secretary of
tho Navy by Rear Admiral Robl ry D
Evans in his bejok A Sailors Log
which was r ccntly published No action
has been taken upon the matter however
as at present It cannot be said to be under
consideration If anything is done toward
calling Admiral Evans to account for his
statements such action will be taken in
all probability by Secretary Long
Acting Secretar Hackett would not
make tho letter public yesterda al
though In the language of an official of
the department It is written In
Chandlers characteristic stle and
full of tire The second letter is dated
July 15 and as It came In while Acting
Secretary Hackett was away on his vaca
tion anel Is addressed to Secretary Long
Mr Hackett does not feel like taking any
action In the matter especially without
first having consulted Secretary Loig
Admiral Evans was at the Navy Depart
ment cstcrda and had a short talk with
Mr Hackett at which lime the matter of
the contioversy with Mr Chandler was
mentioned Upon leaving the depattment
Admiral Evans said in regard to Mr
Chardlers statements
So far as our relations are concerned
we are merely two private citizens I an
sure he is not my superior nor was he
when my book was published I would
take no orders from him If he has
made any charges against me I have not
seen them
Did you and Mr Hackett discuss the
matter he was asked
There was positively no discussion of
the matter I paid my respects to him
that is all
It is learned positively however that
Mr Hackett called Rear Admiral Evans
attention to the Chandler letter While
no formal discussion took place a copy
of the letter will be furnished to Rear
Admiral Evans and he will be given an
opportunity to make any reply he may
desire The letter does not ask the court
martial of Rear Admiral Evans nor does
it request the appointment of a court of
enquiry Into hl conduct
