The Democratic Platform.
We publish on our first page the plat
form of the Maryland Democracy adopt
ed by the convention last week and com
mend it to the careful perusal of our
readers. As will be noticed, the resolu
tions pay a high tribute to the national
administration, and records the fact that
it has “kept the faith” of the Democrat
ic party of the I nion. This is well put,
and must strike the observant as indeed
a matter of more than passing notice, for
the faith of party platforms had been so
oft and habitually violated by prior ad
ministrations, that Mr. Cleveland’s good
faith not only to his party but to the
country has caused astonishment, and
challenged admiration. The good work
that has already been done has restored
confidence to the people and multiplied
the claims of Democracy for economy and
integrity in fulfilling the functions of
government. The great heart of the coun
try does, indeed, throb healthfully as we
gradually go back to the simple and hon
est methods of the fathers of the Repub
The party pledges in the platform
that it will endeavor at the coming ses
sion of the General Assembly to have
placed upon the statute books an election
law which will embrace not only all the
beneficial provisions of the Tildcn act,
but will embody also all those additional
safeguards to guarantee the purity of
elections, which experience has taugh'
should be incorporated into it. W hat
more could be demanded? What more
could be done ? This provision alone
ought to have the effect of conciliating
the factions of the party which for causes
real or imaginary have been inclined to
sulk. In refering to the coming revis
ion of the constitution, a more thorough
system of taxation is promised, and an
annual registration of voters in cities
whose inhabitants number ten thousand
and upwards. As a whole the platform
reflects the sentiments of the party, and
means a continuation of an honest, pru
dent, progressive administration of our
state affairs. It will commend itself to
the impartial consideration of the voters
of Maryland, and be sustained by the
verdict otAhe people on the Bth ol No
The Baltimore Sun, with characteris
tic enterprise, has sent on a special mis
sion abroad that well-known journalist
and correspondent, Mr. Frank A - Rich
ardson. who for years past has been at
the head of its Washington bureau and
whose letters always teem with compre
hensive and intelligent news. His first
letter appeared in Monday s Sun, and
was written from Cork, Ireland, and
deals with the present political situation
in that country. It will he followed by
others treating of similar subjects in Ire
land and England and will be full of
lively interest and practical information.
The Terrible Hot Spell
.lnly, 1887, will be memorable, says the
Philadelphia Times, as dating the terrible hot
spell of the century. It is ascertained that
the temperature of last month exceeds the
temperature of any July during the hist eigh
ty years, which is as far hack as we have rec
ord, and its record as noted in the official
weather bureau largely surpasses that cl any
month since the organization of the bureau
in 1871.
The largely increased mortality of the last
four weeks tells the fearful story of the death
dealing power of the hot spell. All who could
escape in some measure from the worst ef
fects of the extreme heat did so : hut unfor
tu'lately a large majority of the inhabitants of
the city could not get away from home, and a
startling death list logically followed.
It is predicted that the extreme heat of J il
ly w ill be equalized by more moderate weath
er during the remainder of the season. We
know of no special reason for expecting ex
emption from heat in August because of ex
treme heat in July, but the theory is that the
seasons somehow manage to equalize them
selves. There is logic in assuming that the
rain-fall of the year will he about the average
during the twelve mouths, regardless of
drought or Hoods, as an equal amount of
moisture is always in existence somewhere:
but the logic would seem to fail when appli
ed to heat that is not exhausted in its resour
ces by intemperate use.
The true philosophy is to carefully study
adaptability to extremes in the weather: and
in doing so, let it not he forgotten that each
day of protracted heat steadily weakens the
vitality of all who are exposed to it. The
man, woman or child who feels impaired vi
tality from heat, as is indicated by growing
lassitude, diminished appetite, imperfect sleep,
sensitive stomach or lightness or pain in the
head, should he admonished to increased care
in avoiding exposure or exhaustion of any
kind. There is no safely to persons who feel
such results from excessive heat, and it is in
viting serious and possibly fatal consequen
ces to ignore these plain admonitions.
g-y Hon. John C. New, one of the inrist
astute Republican politicians in Indiana, says
that if Plane is the Republican nominee in
18b8 that State will gIVe a majority of ;i5,000
against him.
To Equalize Taxation.
The Committee on Taxation, of the Maty
land State Fanueis' Association, consisting ot
Edward Stake of Washliiglou county, chair
man; W. W. Waring of Prince Ceorges, Dr.
,I. 1.. A.lkins of Talbot. 11. C. Hallowell of
Montgomery, Thomas F. shepherd ol ( at toll,
Dr. K. Mackall of Cecil and Samuel Brooke
of Anne Arnndel met in Baltimore on Thurs
day of last week to act upon the report to be
presented by the chairman, embodying a
draft of a bill which he had been authorised
to prepare. The report after discussion was
adopted by the committee and will be pre
sented to the association, of w hich ex-Goveru
or Hamilton is president, whicli will shortly
convene. The purpose of the hill, which it is
expected the Fanners’ Association will ask
the Legislature to enact into law. is to equal
ize the burdens of taxation. After providing
that taxes shall he laid upon the present val
uation of properly, ith necessary changes,
w ithout the expense of a general assessment,
it exempts schools lor liee education, places
of worship, cemeteries not owned with a view
to profit, public buildings belonging to the
National (iovornment, the Stale and counties,
all re al estate to the extent, of mortgages and
other liens upon it : and provides tor making
tbe owners of mortgage and Judgment liens
pay taxes on the amount invested therein.
It provides for examining property-holders
and verify ing their returns, and imposes pen
alties for failure to make returns. It makes
comprehensive provision for gathering in all
proper laxahles, ami especially coipoialious.
It makes null and void all covenants and con
tracts on the pat t of debtors to pay tax on
mortgages and judgments. Ihe committee
also had under consideration the principle of
taxing tlo gross earnings ot corporation 8 *
which has heen adopted in some of the Stales,
and which has worked very satisfactorily, as
well as the graduated income lax p ssed by
tbe New York Legislature. '1 his law impo
ses a tax o! 1 percent on {incomes over S 3,000;
2 per cent on Incomes of $10,000; 7 per cent
on incomes from §IO,OOO to 00,000; zO per
cent on incomes from t> 0,000 to 5.100,000,
and 50 per cent on all incomes over SIOO,OOO.
The Eastern Branch Bridge-
Col. r. V. ITains has submitted his lirsq
annual report to the Chief of Engineers on
the Eastern Branch bridge at the foot of Penn
sylvania avenue, the construction ot winch
was authorized by the act approved February
appropriating SllO.tHMi. and subsequently
placed under bis charge. He states that the
Eastern Branch, or Anaeostia liner, is 1,.00
feet wide at the site of the bridge, the distance
being measured at right angles to the general
direction oflhe stream. The main channel is
40 feet from the Washington shore, ts JM feel
wide, between the cuives of 0 feet depth, and
lias a maximum depth 17. Sat mean low lido.
Between the main channel and the lelt, on
eastern bank of the river there is a wide Hal,
upon which tbe depth varies Irom 1 to .j leet.
The double track line of the Baltimore and
Potomac Railroad passes along the \\ ashiugtou
shore, the grade on the line of Pennsylvania
avenue being about id feet above low tide.
Pennsylvania avenue terminates in a circle
700 feet in diameter at its intersection with
17tb street, Kentucky avenue, and K street
south, the grade of the center of this circle
being 351 feet above low tide. Surveys f
four lines were made, and after careful cotisid
eiatiou the line of Pennsylvania avenue ex
tended was reccommended fr adoption, as it
seemed to meet more tally than auy othei the
demands of public travel, and, further, afforded
the most favorable ground for the eastern

A special dispatch from Hagerstown Monday
says: “A meeting of the citizens of this city
and county was held in the office ol the count)
commissioners this morning, Mayor li. J-
Halm presiding. A committee was appointed
to make arrar.gi incuts for a complimentary
reception and hall to the slate tioops. The
committee consisting ol Admiiai haiitax
(chairman), Ex-Governor Hamilton, Hon.
Louis E. Mi Comas Colonel Buchanan Schley,
Mayor Halm, William I pdcgrair, Alex. Neill,
Dr. C. E. S. McKee, Geoige W. Harris, George
M. Stonehraker anti John W. Stonebraker,
met to-night and decided to give the reception
at the Baldwin House on Friday night.
Assistant Secretary Maynard to-day gave a
decision in regard to the classification ol .eaf
tobacco which will he of interest to the tobacco
trade. The question arose on a decision ol
the collector at El I’aso, TVs., assessing duty
at the rate of 7-7 cents per pound on certain
leaf tobacco impelled limn Mexico, of which
<JS out of every 100 leaves w ere of the requisite
size and fineness for use as wrappers and too
of which leaves weigh.-d less than a pound.
The determination of the points involved de
pends principally upon the milt to he adopted
in asceitaining whether per cent, of the
commodity is of the weight and quality which
render it liable to the rate of duty imposed.
In his decision Judge Maynard says that the
subject of the lax is -‘leaf tobacco," not “bales'
or “bauds" or “packages” of leal tobacco, and
(.bat the leaf is to be adopted as a unit.
Suit for $5,000 damages was bionghl iu the
Court of Common ITeas yesterday by Lewis
H. Coleman and bis wife, Catherine Coleman,
through their attorney, Hon. Charles Ugh 1
Wilson, against the Baltimore City 1 dssenget
Railway. "The suit is the outcome of injuries
alleged to have been received by Mrs- Coleman
on July Iff, by being shuck by Ihe pole of
Car 150 of the White line. At the time of the
occurance Mrs. Coleman ami her husband, it
is stated in the bill filed, were in their carriage
driving on Baltimore Street, near Calvert,
when the longue of the car ran Ihiough Hu
back of the carriage, striking Mrs. Colemott,
fracturing several ol her ribs. Ihe plantifls
sue ou the grounds of carelessness of the
driver of the car.
At a meeting of citizens ot the Distiict ol
Columbia held Tuesday night resolutions were
unanimously adopted calling on the President
to remove the commissioners of the District.
After reciting iu a premahle that it lias been
shown that great irregularities, abuse ol power
and misappropriation of the public money
exist in the management of the Dislrici gov
ernment, the resolutions urge “in the name
of our outraged people the removal of the
commissioners for the following, among othei
reasons; Because they have betrayed the
l rU st imposed in them by refusing to make
public admitted defalcations in the water de
partment; hecuase they have imposed upon
Congress by making fraudulent estimates for
new water mains: because they have clouded
the titles of a iarge amount of real estate by
manufacturing and dunging iq> against il
bogus water main assessments in order to
make a more favorable showing of the long
defrauded water fund, and because they have
used the public fund lor private purposes, as
shown by vouchers on file iu the I idled Slates j
Treasury." A committee was appointed to J
present the rc-.elutions to Ihe President.
In spite of an increase of 1,02** miles in the

is SO,QUO,OOO bushels less than the average,
which is placed at, 203,Ot)0.tlOo bushels. Tliere
are 0,200 miles of new railways under con- *

the increase in the yield of wheal keeps pace 1
with railroad construction. The failure ol ,
