control in this Rtat ' it has consist
ency violated the snirit. of the
merit system and ltafailed to en
act laws for its establishment. In
their platform recently adopted the
party indorsed the national Admin
istration, whose abuse of the merit
system is shown by the statement,
of the Ron. Charles M. Galloway,
Democratic member of the Federal
Civil Service Commission, who, in
retiring fiotn office on September
0. 810, said:
“Mv resignation was forced be
cause I would not co-operate with
Postmaster-General Burleson in de
bauching the civil service and mak
ing sham of the merit system. ’ !
We pledge our. party to the es
tablishmnrient in the State of a civil
service system based on merit
alone, such as was first enacted by
a Republican Congress, inaugurated
bv a Republican President and ad
ministered by Theodore Roosevelt
as Civil Service Commissioner.
We recognize that the country is
about to enter upon an era of un
precedented business competition
and we desire for our State an ad
ministration which will place Mary
land in the most favorable position
in the great industrial race. To
this and modifications in our laws, in
accordance with changed conditions
and economic demands, must Tie
promptly made, in order to meet
the requirements of the times and
the exigencies of the future.
Among the economies to which we
pledge ourselves are:
(a) The adoption of the most
modern collecting and disbursing
methods as applied to all depart
(1>) A consolidation of the re
lated agencies and offices of the
i State and the abolition of useless
offices and commissions.
(e) The merging of the office of
Motor Vehicle Commissioner with
the State Roads Commission.
(d) The consolidation of the Au
ditor's office' with the office of the
In this connection we call to the
i public’s attention the fnjt that in
1015 the Democratic party solemn
ly promised to enact into law the
l recommendations of the Goo’dnow
commission, and that this commis
j sion in 101(5 Tcer.mmended the
adoption of the latter two reforms,
but the Democratic Legislature,
urged by the same influences now
in control of its affairs, refused to
approve the recommendations.
The adoption of an amendment
to the Constitution of tho United
States is a solemn act, vitally af
fecting the rights and lilerties of
the people of the We there
fore pledge our party to the prin
ciples that all amendments to the
Federal Constitution should be sub
mitted by referendum to the peo
ple of the State before any action
thereon by the General Assembly.
The public sc ho Is of Maryland
-arc not of that standard which
their importance. to the people of
our State demands. It is impera
tive that Maryland should have the
best sehools its revenues can afford.
We favor the removal of the eduea
tional system of the State from the
baneful influence of polities, whose
blighting grip, under the present
Democratic administration, has so
seriously marred its effictc.iry. We
pledge our party to the payment
of increased salaries to teaehers,
so that the people of otrr State may
be assured of tbc highest standard
of efficiency in the teaching force.
Proper housing, hygienic, conditions
and all essential educational facili
ties must be supplied. We favor the
increase of appropriations for the
normal schools, in order that de
serving and capable students mav
have the opportunity of becoming
trained teachers without unneces
sary expense to themselves.
We stand for the maintenance of
the splendid Maryland road system,
built largely under Republican su
pervision, and for its extension, so
far as the public revenue permit.
We further favolsucJi lateral roads
as are necessary to the completion
of the system and the convenience
of the public, to lie paid for by a
just distribution of the costs be
tween counties and State.
Maryland’s chief industry is
agriculture. The prosperity of the
farmer means prosperity for the
people who dwell in the towns and
cities. It is, therefore, a wise poli
cy to foster the basic industry of
the State and to develop our agri
cultural resources so that the heavy
burdens caused by the war may be
offset by increased efficiency in pro
duction. The surest way to reduce
the rate of taxation is by Increas
ing the production of our soils and
adding to the income from our
We believe that the interest of
our people producer and consu
mer alike demands liberal sup
port of all efforts looking to the im
provement of agriculture and the
advancement of rural life.
We, therefore, stand for the fur
ther development of our agricul
tural resources through adequate
support by the State of the StaYe
agricultural agencies. We also fa
vor the provision of adequate
means for carrying on educational
and experimental work so as to en
able our farmers to utilize to the
fullest extent our natural resources.
We pledge our party to protect
for the use of the public the na
tural oyster beds and bars of the
waters of the State, in order that
the oystermcn may hare the right,
in the lawful pursuit of their call
ing, to earn their living without
fear of molestation. We condemn
the administration of the Conserva
tion Commission as incompetent,
partial and needlessly burdensome.
We believe in removing barriers
against acquiring and maintaining
j citizenship in Maryland, and there
fore favor the repeal of the Dec
laration of Intention act, requir
ing citizens of other States to de
clare their intention to become
citizens of Maryland, and of the
Affidavit of Removal act, forcing
citizens, intending or compelled
temporarily to leave the State, to
make oath of intent to return.
We pledge our party to the en
actment of laws guaranteeing to
Baltimore city the fullest possible
measure of self-government iu local
affairs and .therefore favor legisla
tion which will secure to Baltimore
city the complete control of its Po
lice Department, a privilege ac
corded to every county in the State.
We recognize that the members of
the Police Department are under

actment of legislation providing for
an adequate increase in their com- .
We pledge our party to keep the
State tobacco warehouses clear at
all times for the receiving of to
bacco from the tobacco growers of
Southern Maryland, to prevent the
recurrence of a tobacco embargo
such as the tobacco growers have
We pledge the Republican party
to a more efficient enforcement of

State by remedial legislation in be
half of our men and women, to
the end that we may obtain the

Believing that sanitation, health

additional legislation as is needed

to the Serbian program material which
the committee is furnishing to the pub

orphans, and which is being used by
the children all over.the country in
making up school programs.
Governor Harrington writes as fol

Serbia and her people have suffered
such wreck and ruin as no other and
