CAPTAIN JOHN S. STRAHORN
A CARD i
To All Democrats—
-1 am not the candidate of any fac-;
tion. nor am I any man's candidate.
I am a democrat, in every sense of
that word, and 1 shall he the same in
Novemt er whether my name is on the
ticket or "not.
In asking for the nomination for the
House, I do so tecause 1 believe I
have common sense and brains enough
to hold my own in that body. Born
and raised in the country, 1 under-:
}? i stand the county's needs, and if sent
to the Legislature 1 shall expect to be
P on the firing line for ninety days of
the session.
If elected. 1 promise to work fort
every measure that leads to decent
government. It is impossible in this
statement to discuss the many prob
lems which may arise. lat I will de
clare my position on any specific ques
tion which can come tefore the Legis-j
lature. if asked to do so.
I very much deplorje the factional
fight now on. It is not the fact that so
many candidates are in the field (that ,
la a good sign,) but the Democrats of
this county cannot afford to be split
'■ by factional differences if they hope
to win. It cannot profit any faction;

MIL YOTEK—
If you do not know me. get ac
quainted with my record (both civil
j and military) before you decide to vote
against me. Before you make up your
mind to vote for any man—including
myself—consider whether he can
stand up in the November fight and
| meet the onslaughts of the Republican
State Machine, which seems encour
aged to think that it can win this time.
I because of its recent success.
If you can satisfy yourself that I
'either can't or wont properly repre
sent you, that's one thing: On the
other hand, if you think that I can and
will, get behind me, and .1 will do my
best to justify your confidence.
1 did not get overseas, but can any
jone deny that I. gave the *'full meas
ure of devotion’* to my country? I un
derstand it has been said that I am
not available since I have not yet been
discharged from the Army. I am as
sured by my surgeons that I will cer
tainly get my discharge not later than
the 15th of September.

RIGHTS AND DUTIES
I OF LABOR AS TAUGHT j
BY JESUS CHRIST
r .
Mr. MrXamar Shows Conditions And
* ’ Xi-eds In Present
Crisis
r
Labor Sunday was observed in the
’ Maryland Avenue Methodist Episcopal
Church on Sunday night ty appro-.
[jpriate exercises. The pastor. Rev. E
R. Spencer conducted the service and j
$ *
in brief well-chosen words introduced
the special speaker. Mr. James J. Mc-
Namara. legal representative of Baltl
jimore Cnion No. 101.
The front seals were occupied I y
members of local labor unions who
iwere invited especially for this oc
'casion.
Mr. McNamara began his address by I
f ! j
reciting impressively the poem, en
titled, “The Nation’s Prayer.” I y J. G
j Holland:
* “God, give us men. A time like this
1 demands
Strong minds, great hearts, true faith
and ready hands.
. Men whom the lust of office cannot
buy;
Men who possess opinions and a
will;
j Men who have honor, and w'ho will
not lie;
Men who can stand 1 efore a dema
gogue
And scorn his treacherous flatteries
without winking
Tall men, sun crowned, who live
above the fog
In- public duty and in private
thinking!"
i Then, or over an hour, the speaker
iheld the close attention o fltis audience
1 1 y his wit and wisdom and impassion
jed challenge. He showed the injus
tice of our present social system with
the following eloquent figures: Two
percent, of the people own 60 per cent
of the wealth; 33 per cent, i. e. the
middle class own 35 per cent, of the
wealth; 65 per cent. i. e., the working
class, own 5 per cent of the wealth.
What has brought about this unjust
distribution? The machinations of the
capitalists. There was a time when
men lived without capitalism in this
country, having free access to Nature’s
bounties. They were the copper-col
ored Adams and Eves. Following these
came the white men. the pioneers,
each man practically his own nutsler.
I But this happy independence was soon
broken when men devised a plan con
trary to the divine order of earning
one’s own living ly the sweat of his
brow. The ungodly plan was to ac
quire money by the sweat of other
men’s trows, and so they imported
ithe black slave. A bloody civil war
j ended black slavery, only to le fol
lowed by the wage slavery of today.
How shall we abolish this latest
slavery? Not by violence but by edu
cation. When the people wake up and
vote intelligently they will establish
a co-operative commonwealth, In
which brotherhood will reign supreme,
the only capitalist will be the Govern
ment. and all will work and receive
due reward for their labor. Then the
principles of Jesus Christ will prevail
and the kingdom of heaven will be
realized on earth.
After the service Mr. McNamara re
ceived a hearty welcome and thanks
from the pastor and congregation.
LINTHICUM DOWNS
GLEN BURNIE RIVALS
Glenburnie received its second trim
ming this season at the hands of Lin
thicum Country Club on the Glen
burnie diamnond on Sunday, 12 to 7.
It was a hard-fought game from start
to finish, as the teams were strong
rivals. 1
Glenburnie took the lead in the first
and second innings, hut H. Bussey,
who was on the mound for Linthicum,
tightened up and with good support
had easy going.
Linthicum would like to hear from
teams having Sundays open. Phono

AT THE REPUBLIC TONIGHT
His staunch devotion to the memory
of his dead mother is the force which
leads Buddy Apperson to break with
his father in “Bill Apperson’s Boy,”
’ln which Jack Pickford will be seen
Ut the Republic theatre tonight. In
*this feature Mr. Pickford plays a Blue
Ridge mountain lad. the son of Bill
Apperson, a lovable old mountaineer.
Some years before the opening of
the picture Bill Apperson’s wife died, j
Both father and son revere her mem- !
ory. Sundays, on their way home
from the litle church, they pause to
- doff their hats and stand silently for !
a moment beside the grave of the be
loved wife and mother.
But now creeps in another influence,
j Bill Apperson is lonely. He knows
i that he and Buddy would be more
r comfortable under the hand of a wo- :
. man. One day as Buddy is out with j
, his gun he is told in an insinuative
j vay by a member of the Yarnton fam
, iiy that his father is playing too much
. attention to “women.” Buddy resents
, the insult, and whips the young man
who was the author of it.
1 At home he is told by his father
- that the latter intends to be married
e to “one of the Hansons up Blackfern
1 Mountain way.” Then Bill Apperson
)’ asks his son if he will not be willing
to accept the prospective step-mother
* %s a mother, in fact, call her such. To
~ This Buddy will not agree. He says,
* “You can marry her if you want to,
1 but sh ain’t my mother.”
1 When the step-mother comes home
‘ tluddy does not accept her graciously.
When .he #prsists in his determination
1 not to call her. “mother ” his father
cuts a stoat stick and starts to give
Buddy a whipping.
TO GIVE “VBTORY i
BUTTONS" OUT HERE
Discharged Soldiers May Get
Them From Capt. Murphy
At State House
DATES ARE ARRANGED
Annapolis and Anne Arundel county
soldiers discharged from the service,
who have not hitherto received there
“Victory Buttons” may. in the future, ;
may get them here in Annapolis, in- ]
stead of going to Baltimore, through |
:an arrangement that has been per
fected by Aujutant-General Henry M.
Warfield, and the Army Recruiting
Station, in Baltimore.
The Adjutant-GeYieral having ex
tended the use of a room in the lower
part of the State House, the Army of
ficials excepted the offer and arrange
ments have been made by which sol
diers may call there in order to get
their buttons. Captain Daniel J. Mur
phy, of Annapolis, formerly of the One
Hundred and Fifteenth Infantry, has
been detailed to take charge of the
work of distributing the buttons. The
room was opened today at 10 a. m. and
will remain open until 5 p. m. Sep
tember 9 and 10 have been fixed as
additional dates and the same sche
dule of hours will prevail. Other dates
will be announced later. It was
through the efforts of Captain Murphy
that General Warfield took this mat
ter up.
The letter received by General War
field from Col. M. I). Cronin, in charge
of the Army Recruiting Station, in
part, reads:
"We will be glad to accept use of
the room you offer for issue of Vic
tory buttons. Thanks for your co
operation.
An officer from the Army Recruiting
Station, Baltimore, will be at Anna
polis from 10 a. m. to 5 p. m., on Sep
tember 2, 9 and 16.
A method that works well else
where is the ex-soldier leaves his dis
charge with the officer, who brings it
to this office, when the necessary cer
tification is made; on the next trip to
Annapolis, the ex-soldier calls and
gets his discharge an dbuton. The
discharge is at all times safe anil, its
return to the soldier certain. The
number of certifications that any one
officer can make in one day is limited.
The leaving of the discharge expedi
tes the issue. Ex-soldiers in Annapo
lis will be doing a helpful thing to
their fellow soldier if they leave their
discharge and call again for their but
tons.”
