Just a word to the man who at present in tends to vote for the proposed disfranchising amendment: Have you thought of the per manency of the thing, if adopted? You should bear in mind that it is not like an act of Assembly, which can be repealed within two years after its passage, if found undesirable, but once engrafted upon our State Constitution it can only be gotten rid of by means of an other act of the Legislature and another vote of the people. And also bear in mind that, with the amendment in force, Legislatures would be elected solely by the men who are in favor of disfranchisement and the electorate to which the rescinding act would be submitted would include an overwhelming majority of such voters. In fact, if the amendment is adopted there is no hope of ever getting rid of the consequences of the dangerous experiment except by an appeal to the Supreme Court of the United States. And it has been pointed out by skilled law yers that the decision of the Supreme Court (which will most certainly be invoked) may be disastrous to the Patricians or privileged class which it is proposed to create by the amendment. The highest legal tribunal in the land may overthrow the whole amendment or may simply rule out the part which is in viola tion of the Fifteenth Amendment to the Con stitution of the United States, leaving the provision for the memory test in full force. We call it the “memory” test because it is just that and can not reasonably be termed an edu cational test. As this test could be successfully met by but a very few of the intelligent white men of Maryland the result would be that our voting population would be practically con fined to those qualifying under the property clause. Wouldn’t it he better not to try such a risky experiment ? Rev. Osborne Ingle, for forty-three years rector of All Saints’ Protestant Episcopal Church, Frederick, Md., died of Bright’s dis ease at bis home in that city, on Tuesday morning, aged 72 years. He was the oldest pastor in the city and was greatly respected by all classes. Rev. Mr. Ingle was a native of Washington and graduated at the University of Virginia in 1860. After graduating at the Philadelphia Divinity School he served as as sistant rector at several churches in Baltimore. In May, 1866, he became rector of All Saints’ Church and remained tbere until be died. In 1864 Rev. Mr. Ingle married Miss Mary A. Addison of Prince George’s county, wbo died some years ago. They were the parents of ten children, but three of whom grew to maturity. In 1881 a daughter died, followed in 1882 by the death of five other children—four daugh ters and a son—within two weeks. This sud den and terrible affliction enlisted not only the sympathy and sorrow of tbe city, but was felt all over the State. Thecbildren fell victims, one after the other, in quick succession, to diphtheria during an epidemic. Tbe follow ing year Mrs. Ingle died two days after the death of an infant son. Mr. Thomas Hill of Baltimore, whose serions illness from paralysis was reported in these columns last week, died at Melrose, Mass., where be bad been under treatment, on Tuesday last, aged 75 years. Mr. Hill—who was in all respecls a most estimable citizen— was a well known real estate operator and manager of large estates. He is survived by a widow, wbo is the only daughter of tbe late George B. Westcott of Cbestertown, Md., one daughter, wbo is the wife of Rev. John G. Sadtler, and two sons—Messrs. Malcolm and Norman Hill. One of the late brothers of Mr. Hill was Mr. William B. Hill, who was a member of the bar and Secretary of State dur ing the administration of the late Governor A. W. Bradford. Tbe remains of Mr. Hill were brought to Baltimore for interment. The death of Governor Johnson of Min nesota has caused a genuine feeling of sorrow throughout the entire country. It resulted from the after effects of a serious operation, and while the Governor made a brave fight for his life, the odds were against him from the start and he finally had to answer the dread summons, despite the best efforts of distin guished surgeons. John Johnson sprang from most humble parentage and was eminently a self-made man. Before the last Democratic National Convention he was prominently mentioned in connection with the Presidential nomination, and had he lived he would no doubt have been a leading aspirant for that honor in 1912. He was 58 years of age and his parents were Swedes. Registration will begin in Baltimore county on Tuesday next, September 28, and those whose names are not already on tbe books should see that they are placed there then. After this sitting tbere will be but one more opportunity to register this year—on Tuesday, October 5. Your name must ap pear on the poll-books of your precinct or dis trict, otherwise you cannot vote in November. If you have not already registered, attend to it NOW., The Republicans of Baltimore city held their judicial convention on Thursday and nominated for members of the Supreme Bench Judge John J. Dobler, Mr. Henry Duffy and Mr. Lewis Putzel—generally conceded to be most excellent selections. The highly compli mentary nominating speeches were made by Mr. George R. Gaither, Mr. Morris A. Soper and Mr. Robert H. Smith, respectively. The State of Maryland, according to the latest report, has 12,617 men on the United States pension rolls and the amount paid them for the fiscal year ended June 30, 1909, was $2,164,269. THE PUBLIC ATHLETIC LEAGUE. The first annual report of tbe Public Ath letic League has just been issued. It is more elaborate in form than are the customary re ports of private societies, but this is altogether fitting in view of tbe character and scope of the League’s work. The report covers the activities of tbe summer of 1908 and tbe winter of 1908-1900 and includes the proceedings of the annual meeting held in February. Tbe illustrations are instructive and the text makes interesting reading, especially tbe report of the secretary, George W. Ehler, which gives a clear and thorough description of the condi tions that the League aims to improve and of tbe problems it expects in part to solve. The meaning and pnrpoee of the League are concisely given in the articles of incorporation: “The improvement of the physical and moral welfare of the people of Baltimore city and its vicinity, and to this end the establishment and conduct of playgrounds and other suitable places for exercise." This is a frank recogni tion of the fact that tbe physical and moral condition of the great mass of the people is not what it might be, and the League proposes to dig down to and treat the root of the trouble by giving the growing boys and girls oppor tunities for play and wholesome surroundings and under helpful control. In the past, civil ized communities and especially congested ones have tended to drive tbe children too much, to hammer mental and moral instruction into them, and to neglect the physical side of tbeir natures, forgetting or not realizing that to make the best use of tbe brain and, in the long run and in the mass, to develop character, our children must have sound bodies* This is tbe thing of first and moet fundamental import ance. Therest comes partly while the bodily health is being established and partly after ward. Thus the League aims to supplement the work done in the schools, to support it by bettering the foundation upon which the edu cational framework is erected. At the same time the League proposes to counteract to some extent—perhaps in time even in large meas ure—the evil influences so prevalent in con gested centers where wholesome home life is the exception and the street is the children’s playground. Important and permanent results of the League’s efforts are not to be expected at once, for to work such changes the element of time is necessary, aDd even after a few years have passed a careful study of court and prison records, of hospital and health board records, and of even less tangible sources of informa tion will have to be made in order to deter mine how much benefit has been procured. The tools with which this great task is to be accomplished are to be found in tbe public parks, in settlements and in institutional rooms of churches of various denominations, and they consist of open-air gymnastic frames, out-door and in-door gymnastic apparatus, running tracks, jumping pits, nets, balls, and many other devices. Every day in six or eight parks and other places hundreds of boys (and last year there were girls, too,) are to be seen revelling in the facilities that bavh been pro* vided for them by the Park Board and the League and other bodies. During tbe year covered by the report some 3,500 different in dividuals made use of these facilities. In tbe summer just ending about the same number of boys alone have been in regular attendance* And this is only the beginning of the work. The girls and the small boys under twelve years of age are in charge of the Children’s Playground Association, a kindled organiza tion that is co-operating closely with the Ath letic League and is also doing a work of enor mous value. The boys are under the care of trained leaders and are taught various games and other athletic exercises which develop the body and also have a direct influence for good on the mind and the character. At intervals contests are held between two or more of tbe parks or institutions, which interest the boys and show how much progress each group is makiDg. As far as is possible each boy is watched and cared for so that he willnot overstrain him self and so that be will get the greatest ad vantage out of his exercise. Baltimore countians will notice that tbe League when organized expected to work among the “people of Baltimore city and its vicinity.” As yet only preliminary steps have been taken to extend tbe work into the county* but it is hoped that thoroughgoing plans will be inaugurated soon so that at least the more thickly settled portions will be covered. How soon this will be done depends upon the in terest shown by the residents of the county and upon tbe resources that the League is able to command. REPUBLICAN COMMITTEE ORGANIZES The Baltimore County Republican Execu tive Committee met last Wednesday aDd reor ganized by electing Mr. William P. Gundry, chairman and treasurer and Mr. Harry A. Matthews, secretary. It was decided to open headquarters at 224 St. Paul street, Baltimore. The meeting was largely attended, all tbe districts of the county being represented. The opinion was expressed that tbe amendment will be beaten by a larger WILLIAM P. GUNDRY. majority than the last amendment, and that the chances for a Republican victory are brighter than at any time since 1895. Mr. Gundry will be in daily attendance at headquarters, and will be glad to give any in formation about registration to any person inquiring. All members of the committee and persons interested in the campaign are invited to call at headquarters or write to tbe chair man. An Anne Arundel county farmer named William A. Moffatt was recently the victim of an old Spanish swindling game and lost nearly $3,000. According to a letter received by him he was to become the guardian of a young girl in a Spanish convent who was worth $200,000. Several thousand dollars were needed to obtain her release and then Moffatt was to bring her to this country, have her educated and as a re ward receive half her fortune. He raised the money, went to Spain and met the sharpers by appointment. They soon had nearly all his cash and left him to get back to America the best way be could. It is hoped tbe experi ence of M offatt may prove a warning to others who have a burning desire to get rich quick Mr. Harry D. Busick of Towson received a similar letter several months ago, but declined the get-rich-quick method with tbanks. In the past fiscal year the Patent Office at Washington issued 34,332 patents, the largest number in a single year in the history of that department of the Government service. The first patent was granted in 1836 and the busi ness of the office has had a steady growth ever since. It is not generally known that large quanti ties of American corn are shipped to Scotland and used for the manufacture of Scotch whisky. American corn is cheaper than that grown in other countries and is also said to be better. A plot of ground at Fifth avenue and Forty fourth street, New York, that sold forty years ago to Paran Stevens for $125,000, changed owners last week at $1,900,000. It is in the uptown business district. AUTUMN NUPTIAL EVENTS. Eigneb—Kilian.— Miss Katherine P.
