Cltni C. Magee Clever Freehand Artist
Will Uravi Picture Of Mai or To*
I Three splendid reels of moving pic
tures were shown at the Colonial
Theatre last night. The pictures were
, instructive, entertaining and amus
ing.and thoroughly clean and moral in
tone. Birds on the shores of Holland
was a good lesson in ornithology and
I ° .
was most instructive
I The vaudeville specialty last night
was in the capable hands of Clem <’.
Magee, an old actor and artist. Mr.
Magee does some clever imitation in
wooden shoe dancing. He imitates
the fife and drum corps with his feet
very cleverly. Besides this Mr.
Magee proves his artistic ability by
an excellent exhibtion of free-hand
drawing. He converts a wine glass
into two Italians in the art of oscula
tion; he takes a f**w 000’s and curves
and makes them into a popular He
brew merchant. He also draws in
colored crayon a marine view, which
is executed in a few minutes and is a
good example of free-hand drawing.
If Mr. Magee would cut out his
vocal part of the program and give a
few more of his artistic free hand
sketches, it would add to the pleasure
of the evening’s entertanment, in
which Mr. Magee conspicuously fig
ures. On the whole the entertainment
is a very enjoyable one
Tonight there will be an entire
change of program. Mr. Magee will
draw a picture of the Mayor and sev-
I eral prominent people in town.

Says Me Never Disputed
Finance Commission’s State*
I NNheie It Is Offset B\ Asset —Borrow-
ing Money Oi Realizable Asset
In reply to Mr. Gott “that Ex-
Mayor Claude has failed absolutely
to show that the statement issued by
the Finance Commission to be in
correct’’ I would say that I lnvve
never disputed their statement and to
the contrary I consider the statement
a frank and correct account, as far as
1 *can judge, and compliment the
Commission on the clearness with
which the facts are presented. I con
gratulate the city upon its increased
revenue. All I have said is that it
is the best argument I have seen
against another bond issue.
1 have never disputed the fact that
the city could carry another bond is
sue, without increasing the tax rate;
but, is it good policy to do so? When
y<>u show so clearly that you can
carry out these improvements without
burdening the city with more lebt?
As to tli • charges of inaccu icy by
Mr. Riley ! will say that 1 ca i never
accept his view that SB,OOO, < r there
about of back taxes at the e.. ! of the
present y< ar, or the coming \car will
not be available for any purp >se dur
ing the year of the levy. The amount
of uncollected taxes is a variable,
during each month in the year. At
the beginning of each fiscal year a
budget is made up for the expnses of
that year and a tentative plan of im
provements for which the money
levied is to be used. The taxes un
collected bear interest at 6 per cent,
and if money is not at hand to pay
the running expenses and for the im
provements, within the amount of the
levy is it perfectly proper and busi
nesslike to borrow. Borrowing money
on a realizable asset, where the debt is
offset is not considered a debt, in
' the parlance of city finances, but
where the city creates a debt not
covered by taxes or other resources
tion process of collection then a float
-1 ing debt is created. No city can run
without f temporary loans and they
are no termed debts or considered as j
such. Now with regard to the note
of $7,761.41 negotiated to pay for
the engine house. Quoting from
Mr. Biley under the caption charges '
of inaccuracy by former Mayor
Mr. Riley says this note is carried by j
the city, so that the whole indebt
edness still exists. It is a fact
stated by the finance commission, and
which Treasurer Gott will verify to 1
any one.
Just look over and read in the
same paper Treasurer (lott's verifi
cation of Mr. Riley’s statement:
Mr. Cott So that the amount now
due in the banks on said note is $5,-
761.41, which, for all intents and
purposes actually represents the orig
inal Rescue Hose Company's debt ex
cept the amount of $2,000, which has
actually been paid thereon.
Oh, this engine house debt; what a
In the Treasurer’s statement it said
to be $7,761.41 ; in the Mayor’s
statement $2,761.41, and in the bond
issue ordinance $7,957.41, and in an
other statement $5,761.41. This is
what caused me to say the statements
appeared to be juggled.
The note of $7,761.41 contract price
of the Rescue Hose House, was a
demand note made by our Board in
the Farmers’ National Bank. The
balance due on this note in said bank
is today $2,761.41.
The $3,000 note for current expen
ses of this Board was placed in the
Annapois Banking and Trust Com
pany, yet it is attributed to the same
debt. Like the comet’s tail some of it
dropped off and it was seen in the
Eas when,according to all calculations
it should have been in the West
Notice Mr. Gott uses the words banks
in speaking of the Engine House debt.
Now as Treasurer Gott has answer
ed Mr. Riley,let’s reply to Mr. Gott’s
charges against me of inaccuracies.
Mr. Gott knows the first car over
the W., B. and A. did not run until
April, 1908, that the discount on tax
bills was not done away with until
1908, that Murray Hill was not re
assessed until 1908, yet he states that
we received this revenue from July,
1907. I believe the people to be able
| ; to judge which was right. Mr Gott
or myself.
I recommended the bond issue of
1908 because I thought it'Tiecessary.
. The defeat of it convinced me of
my error, because we got along so
■ well without it.
During May and June the city
usually receives about SIO,OOO from
other sources than the levy. The
' Treasurer in his letter yesterday did
not state the cash now in the treasury
1 and the amount in other fiscal officers
hands not yet turned in. A
Bible Study.
There will be a public iheeting for
Bible study at the Red Men’s Hall,
x Francis street.at 8 o'coek tomorrow
. evening. The meeting will be eon
s ducted by Mr. J. A. Bonet, of the
. Brooklyn Tabernacle, New York, and
his subject will be “God’s Stone, Wit
-1 ness and Prophet the Great Pyramid
8 in Egypt.’’ There is no charge and
y there will be i.o collection. Every

Mr. Matthew Strohin Passes Away After
| Brief Illness —A Veteran Of Civil
There passed away, after a brief
illness this morning one of the best
known men in Annapolis.
Mr. Matthew Strohm. aged 66 years,
who for many years was Boxing Mas
ter at the Naval Academy, died at his
home, 170 Green street, after an ill
ness of only ten days. Death was due
to heart failure Less than a fort
night ago Mr. Strohm was seized with
severe illness from an acute attack of
indigestion, from which he rallied
from time to time, but never fully re
covered, his heart being too weak to
stand the strain.
Mr. Strohm was a man of robust
build and was possessed of a wonder
fully strong constitution,/but the tak
ing on of flesh 1 in later years had
weakened his heart action, which
caused his death. For forty-two
years, Prof. Strohm was the boxing
master at the Naval Academy, and in
structor of gymnastics, and officers
now out in the service who have grad
uated in the past forty-two years,
were instructed by him. Last year ho
was retired, and had just begun to
take life easy when death called him
; to his eternal home.
He was a veteran of the Civil War
and a Past Master Mason of the An
napolis Grand Lodge of Masons. He
was also a member of the local lodge
of Red Men, Odd Fellows and the
German Aid Society, and was a di
rector in the Annapolis Building and
Loan Association. He is survived by a
widow, Mrs. Louise Strohm, and five
children. They are Mrs. George W.
Evans, Mrs. Louis Thomas,Miss Eliz
abeth K. and Messrs. John C. and
William A. Strohm
Prof. Stohm was a man of jovial
and genial disposition and was always
good-natured. He was lil*d by all
who new him, and in the forty-two
years that he was instructor at the
Naval Academy he was faithful in
his attention to duty and always con
scientious in its performance.
The funeral arrangements hav>* not
bee’h completed.
