THE PRINCE GEORGE’S ENQUIRER-UPPER MARLBOROUGH, MARYLAND, JUNE 10,1887
THE gfrhur (i'iu]iiivrr. UPPER M AR L BOK OP Gil: Friday Morning June 10th. ItSi | JOSEPH K- ROBERTS, I Editors FEED SASSCER, JR. S Lctltors - A Timely Rebuke. lu its last issue. Harper's Weekly, ! takes occasion to condemn in severe and sarcastic terms the oration delivered at the tomb of General Grant on Decoration Day. The orator is reported to have said that i- iu these days of slush and gush one man intends to teach his children that the war for the L nion was right, eternally right, and the war against the Union was wrong, eternally wrong." It was wicked, desperately wicked. 'I he Contederates used to be called ‘'traitors, and thev were.” Our able contemporary very pertinently asks : ‘’Did the orator think that Grant was an apostle of slush and gush ?” and goes on to show how he, soldier like, urged that the mere animosity and rhetorical fury ot active war should be forgotten ; and notes the difference in the sentiments entertained by Charles Sumner who would not in scribe upon regimental flags the names of battles between fellow citizens. That such language was not only out of taste but abhorrent to the feelings of the pub lic, is clearly indicated by the fact that at the very moment these words of de rision of Grant's owu patriotic sentiments were spoken at Grant's tomb, to which Union and Confederate officers together bore his body, the graves of the soldiers of the blue and the gray were decorated in common with memorial flowers at ‘•lt was the fidelity to honest convic tion,” says the Weekly, “which made a man willing to die for it ; it was the per sonal heroism of a thousand young South erners, not less heroic than their stead fast Northern foes—not the mistaken the ory of the Constitution, nor the slavery which that theory sought to protect — which Grant and Sumner gladly acknow ledged, and which the great body of mag nanimous Union soldiers cordially recog nized now.” If the speakers on such public occa sions would imitate the example of Air. Grady and utter only sentiments of fra ternity and patriotism and not ‘ slush and gush,” they would be heard with more pleasure and the country would be better for it. A Maryland Senator in New Ycrk. If there is a man in the country wlto de serves the title of silent politician, it is Sena tor Arthur P. Gorman, of Maryland. lie can party a “interwiew” with great adroitness and lias away of swing “no" when asked his opinion upon public topics that precludes fur ther questioning. As chairman of the demo cratic national executive committee lie exhib ited a shrewdness and knowledge of men equal to all the emergencies of political leader ship and manipulation. The Senator was in New York during the week, and while lie would not talk for an interview chatted briefly about some points in national politics. Among other things, lie said that in his opinion the nest contest for the presidency would be a re petition of that of 1884 as regards the leading candidates. “If the conventions were to come oft' now, “said the Senator, “both Cleveland and Blaine would be renominated. The result would he a walk over. Mr. Cleveland would be re-elected. Our party is so entrenched that it cannot he disturbed by any man tiiat the re publicans may name. There has been no great general legislation to affect the relative standing of the parties before the country.— Possession of power by our party has brushed away the cobwebs. Nothing has gone wrong as predicted. On the contraiy, tlie govern ment lias been fairly administered and the par ty lias secured public confidence. Of course, a great many tilings may happen between this time and the meeting of the national conven tions next year, which might change the whole situation. The most difficult period to make a prediction as to the future of politics is iu the summer and fall a year before the conventions meet.”—A” 1' Tribune of .June -tlh. The Advance in Coffee- The rapid advance in the price of coffee jg attracting a good deal of attention in the hus ness world at this time. New York is the center of the coffee speculation in the United .States, and the Baltimore coffee men all have their eyes turned in that direction. A Balti more operator in coffee says : “The fact that a yew ago SB,OOO would buy a thousand bags of coffee, and that the same quantity will now cost $.*6,000, teiis the extent of the advance. The New York Coffee Exc liauge is a creation of the last few years, and with it came the dealing in margins. Before the days of mar gins the coffee buyer had to become the pur chaser, and it required a large capital to go into a big venture. Now SI,OOO put up on margins will control a thousand hags of cof fee, and the result is that all sorts of outside operators have gone into coffee operations.— The coffee men have not. a; a rule, made much money by the matked advance, proba bly because they did not have the faith that outsiders had in the speculation. It is a gi gantic speculation that extends over the world --Europe, America, Asia and Afiica. About $120, 000, fi00 will control the coffee produc tion —‘corner - if. But the speculation is based on the crop of 1887-8, which statisticians fig-, ure will be short. It is very much like a ■‘pec ulation based upon what the wneat crop is to lie next year. The great coffee si>eculation of 1874 smashed those who were in. The New Yorkers who, with $5,000,000, was the leader settled with his creditors at fifty cents on the dollar, and has been no higher than a broker ever since. Seven or eight Baltimore coffee men went up at that time.” There is another view of the coffee ad vance. This is entertained by the class of coffee dealers who believe the coffee supply is sure to lie short because of failure in the pro ducing countries. The wholesale dealers say the trade is not active because retail men will not buy except in small quantities, be lieving the high figures will not be maintain ed. The wholesalers think they have data to show that coffee will continue to he dear. Coffee substitutes and adulterations are said to be coining conspic ously to the front again. The hopes ot tiie Peninsular farmers of a large peacli crop tins season will be disappoint ed. The freeze iu April did the business for the peaches. Most of them have fallen off the trees, and from present appearance there will not be half a crop. Resignation of Trust. 11l- I.KTTKI! TO COI.I.EC TOl: JtilßK li I- -Al*- l-OIN I’M EN TOF lU' St l < ISSSOK. Internal Revenue Collector Joseph K. Rob -1 erts Tuesday received a letter of resignation ' from George Trust, which was as follows : | “ Halfimore, June <>tli, 1887- —Hon. Jos. K. | Roberts, Collector Internal Revenue .--My | Dear Sir : 1 have noticed the various attacks j that have been made upon you by newspapers ! of late on account of my appointment by you las a clerk in your department. To relieve you | of any entanglement in this matter, 1 mostres | pectfully lender to yon my resignation. Since the unfortunate occurrence licit lias been so severely commented on by the press, with the I sole purpose, as I have reason so believe, to i weaken, if possible, the democratic party of | Baltimore city. ! law end. a. r d to live a ! proper life, and have devoted my entire time | i and labor to the support of my family, who 1 j ate dependent on me sorely for support. To j I that end 1 applied more than a year ago for a | j position under the government, and passed a j satisfactory examination before the civil ser vice board of ti e instoin house examiners, result that would appear to any fair-minded man. enough to satisfy the most extreme civil service reformer even of the Bonaparte school. -In tendering my resignation I desire to j state that 1 was first encouraged in my appli cation for a federal appointment by gentlemen ' now connected with the Reform League, or in I full sympathy with them. In fact, these gen tlemen. including the names of Gen. Bradley j T. Johnson and J. Frank Morrison, indorsed ) the only formal application in writing made by me for office, while the other reputable cit- j izetis, with full k bow ledge of my past life, j freely and strongly endorsed me. Upon the j indorsement of these gentlemen and other friends, and knowing *of no civil-service rule proscribing me, and lam satisfied uo such j rule or provision of law exists,! submitted my claim to you and asked for a position tin- ; deryott. In conclusion, allow me to add that i during the short period 1 have been connected j ’ with your department 1 have met with noth- j ing but kindness at tl.e bauds of yourself and | the employes of the office, to ail of whom i tender my sincere thanks. I remain joins, most truly. Geobge Tui'sx. Collector Roberts sent a reply as follows : I’nileil Slnles Intenuil Iterenue Collector's Office. District of Maryland,. —George Tins', Esq.—Dear Sir ; I am in receipt of your favor of the ti-ii inst. tendering your resignation of the position of clerk now held ly you iu tins office. I accept your resignation, to take effect when jour successor lot lie position now filled by you so well is ready to relieve you. Yours, very respectfully, ••J. K. Roueuts, Collector.” Mr. Roberts said : “I entertain the kindest feelings of sympathy for Trust. 1 have no feeling in common with the self-constituted reformers who, foigetiiijg the beam in their own eyes, set themselves up as the public cen sors of the character of others. Individual in stances there are of the existence of abeam in the eyes of more than one of these persons. The Bible says that David had divine forgive ness of most grievous sins. If the standard set up hj r the so-cal’ed Reform League for other people were to be met d out to them in the hereafter very few of their souls would he saved. I accepted the indorsement of Trust by General Johnson and Mr. Morrison as an opportunity for favoring those gentlemen and their political friends, and to tiiese i rust had as a backer ex Gov. White, a true democrat, for whom I entertain sincere admiration. Ac ting u|ion the advice of parly friends I have ac cepted the resignation of Trust, and 1 do so re gionally.” Henry Richardson, of Harford county, has been appointed in the place of Trust, aud on Thursday entered upon the duties of the place. It is a serious problem, says an exchange, this convict labor. The convicts should not be idle. Tliej - will, nearly all of them, some day be released, and j’ears of idle life will in evitably make them more dangerens to society than they were before committal. The pris ons ought to lie self-supporting. In an ideal State it would be impossible for any man, by I perpetrating a crime, to burden the body pol- | itic with ids support.. Free labor ought not to | be deprived of any remuneration it would otli- | erwise gain bv the competition of criminals. — i How shall these three principles he rec moiled;' : The Bureau of Labor Statistics of Illinois has j just suggested a plan in its fourth report. It | proposes to banish machinery, to make the convicts work at manual occupations. It is argued with much plausibility that this will keep the competition at a minimum, increase the self-reliance of the prisoner, and make'him earn his board, clothing and lodging, at the same time. Like all great discoveries, it seems simple and practicable, and a satisfacto ry solution of a troublesome question. It is certainly far superior to the Herald's proposi tion to banish convicts to Alaska. The reception that was accorded Car- j dtnal Gibbons upon his a.rival in lial timorc on Tuesday, after an absence of four months in Europe, was one of the largest ovatioi s of the kind ever hold in that city, and was a distinguished mark of respect to the greatly beloved prelate who said that the occurrence would hind him more firmly to the beautiful city where he was horn, where Providence has cast bis lot, and where he hopes to die.
