UPPER MARLBOROUGH: Friday Moraing September 2ad, 1887 JOSEPH K- ROBERTS. ( Editors , FRED 3ASSCER. JR. S Democratic State Ticket. FOR GOVERNOR ; ELI HU E. JACKSON. ~f Wirnmiro County. FOR COMPTROLLER L. VICTOR BAUGHMAN, of Frederick Caunty, FOR ATTORNEY-GENERAL: WILLIAM PINKNEY WHYTE of S Alii more City. Pennsylvania Democrats Endorse Cleveland, The Pennsylvania State Convention met on Wednesday, and after nominating can didates for a Supreme Court Judgeship and for State Treasurer, adopted a plat form highly eulogist!:; of the President. It says of him : “Wise, sagacious and pa triotic, he has restored confidence to the business interests of the country in the Democratic party, has directed the finan cial affairs of the government with apt ability, has strengthened the public cre dit, and thereby given us a period of great industrial and commercial pros perity.” The chairman, ex-Congressman Post, in the course of his speech also referred to the President in the following lan guage: “In Mr. Cleveland, a Democratic President, the country has found a man of brains and pluck, inflexible integrity, patriotic impulses, conservatism and sa gacity, in whom the people have impl e t confidence.” These expiessions of approval, coming in rapid succession from every section of the country, must be very gratifying and cheering to the President. Maryland's Part in the Coming Centennial- It will be pleasing not only to the State militia but to all who are actuated by feelings ol State pride to hear that the praiseworthy.effbrts of Gov. Lloyd to have Maryland creditably represented in Phila delphia during the Constitutional Centen nial have met with such unexpected suc cess. With the necessary funds provided, the greatest obstacle has been removed, and our State troops will no doubt have an opportunity to exhibit their excellent dis cipline and training during the coming celebration. The adoption of the Con stitution was a memorable event in our national history, and its hundredth anni versary on the 17th iust., will mark the close of a century in which it has ‘stood many severe tests so well that it has come to be regarded as the “masterpiece of hu man legislation.” Mr. Gladstone has said: “The American Constitution is, as far as I can see; the most wonderful work ever struck off at a given time by the brain and purpose of man,” Students of history will remember that some of Maryland's early statesmen ren dered distinguished service in framing this remarkable document, which be came the “supreme law of the land,’ and that the part our noble little State took in the eventful period of the Na tion’s birth, was no insignificant one. — It is, therefore, right that Maryland should not not be wanting in patriotic spirit nowand that she should take the part, to which she is so justly entitled, in the coming celebration. The Medical Congress. It is now authoritatively announced that President Cleveland will be present at the opening of the International Medical Congress in Washington next Monday, and on the fol lowing evening, (Tuesday) he will receive members of the Congress, and the ladies ac companyinglheni, at the \\ bite House. The local committee of the congress was in session Monday completing details for the assemblage. About four hundred foreign physicians, and fr0m2,500 to 3,06 ft of this country, will be in attendance. In addition to Albangh's Opera House.where the general meetii gs of the congiess will be held, the committee of arrangements has se cured the Congregational church, the National Ritles Armory.the Colnra bian 1 niversily Hall, Georgetown Medical College building, the Cornwell building and the Universalist church, for meetings of sections. The Washington Light Infantry Armory and the National Ri des Armory will be used as places for the medical and surgical exhibits. Many dealers in and manufacturers of surgical supplies have already Iteen assigned space fur exhibits. The B- & 0. Deal Again. The latest phase of the now notorious Ives- Staynor Baltimore and Ohio deal is the report that Ives is preparing to assert his legal eights against Mr. Robert Garrett, and that that the courts w ill be called upon to determine wheth er or not there was a violation of contract. Ac cording to this repoi t it is claimed that the ar ticles of agreement in relation to the deal were not options but actual contracts of sale, with payments made and jdelivsiy agreed upon for a future day, under which the buyers (Ives, Stayner & Co.) acquired fixed rights to the stocks which were the subjects of the con tracts, and to damages for breach of these con tracts. It is also claimed that Mr. Garrett never had more than half the quantity of slock he agreed to transfer, and that Garrett alone co ild not terminate the contract; that it re quires the assent of both panics to nullity the trade. It is also asserted that, in order to have put himself upon soun d legal ground, Ganett should have made a tender of the lull amount of stock he agreed to transfer, and then, in case of payment being refused, lie might have | declared the trade otl. But instead ot doing ( this he simply gave public notice that the deal was at an end. Some lawyeis ho.d it to he a ; srave mistake on the part ol ' ■arrelt that lie , did not tender the stocks. The Ives party claim that the amounts paid < ■arrelt $215,000 in cash and $1,500,000 in C. 11. & I>- stocks, were actual payments on the contracts. The President has appointed IS. 8. Carlisle, of Louisiana, to he minister resident and con sul-general to Bolivia. Friday Moraing THE PRINCE GEORGE’S ENQUIRER-UPPER MARLBOROUGH, MARYLAND, SEPTEMBER 2, 1887. The Governor'* Proclamation. Governor Lloyd has issued the following , proclamation : 1 “The authorities of the several states of; : this Union have resolved to celebrate the Cen- I teunial anniversary of the framing and pro mulgation of the Constitution of the United States at Philadelphia on the 15th, l*!th and 17th days of September next by suitable cer emonies,” including a military display. Since 1 the inauguration of tlie proposed celebration, with the exception of Maryland, the 13 origi nal states have met and made suitable appro priations to secure the presence of their troops in Philadelphia. Without legislative enact ment there are no lunds available in this state to defray the expense of transportation and j substance of the Maryland militia. Had there been a session of the Legislature, no doubt, a sum sufficient to give Maryland a proper rep resentation would' have been cheerfully voted by that body. As it is, I appeal to the patrio tism and liberality of onr citizens for an ad vance or contribution of $5,000, which, by economical exp nditure, may meet the neces sary demands. Though no guarantee of re payment of this money can he ottered, I have faith in the public spirit of the people and will recommend in my message to tluir repre sentatives, the next Legislature, an appropria tion to reimburse all who may contribute. The Centennial is national in character and was originated, at the suggestion ol New Jer sey. by the 13 original states. Pride in our state and the institutions of our country, made glorious by the adoption of the instrument whose centennial we celebrate, justifies the Lope of a prompt response to this appeal. Let ns unite w ith our sister states in some substantial and paliotic testimonial of onr ap preciation cf the blessings that have followed within the last 100 yeans of republican gov ernment, as defined by the ( onstirt.tion of 1787. I hereby appoint and request General Clin ton P. Paine. Hon. John L. Thomas, Hon. George May. Harry Parr, Esq., and John K. Shawb Esq , i f Baltimore Cily, to act as a committee to solicit and receive all moneys contributed for the purpose herein proclaimed. The committee appointed by tlie Governor to solicit and receive subscriptions held a pre liminary meeting on Wednesday, and stated that they expected to raise the *S,(KM necessa ry. lien. Paine, who is chairman of the mil itary committee, reported that the committee, held a meeting in Philadelphia on Monday, and that 18,475 troops would march in the pa rade on (lie Kith under command of Gen. Sheridan. This includes 409 marines, two battalions artilleiy, two squadrons artillery and a large number of sailors, besides the State national guards. The cadets from va rious military schools and some other source* would swell the number to 2(1,000. 'The num ber going from Ballimore will be 1,000 mus kets, or about 1,200 men all told, and anange ments were make yesterday looking to trans portation of the horses of the Governor, staff and military sttieeis. The Fifth Regiment, Baltimore Light Infantry, and the commands of Colonel II- Kyd Douglas, Col. Wardwell and other Maryland soldiers, including the colored Ballimore Kiries, under Captain Geo. N. Matthews, will go. News Items, National Bank depositories now hold a lar ger sum of Government funds than ever l*e fore the amount being $20,257,204. Over seven million and a half trade-dollars have been redeemed to date, more than half of which have been recoined into dimes. The New Yoik State Democratic Central Committee has issued a call for a State con vention to he held at Saratoga, September 27, to nominate candidates for the Slate officers. Ex-Senator Thurman and Henry Watterson are being advertised as the 1 eading writers for the daily American Workman, which will make its appearance in New York about Octo ber 1. John Swinton will also do some of his charactersstsc wsrk for the papsr. Mr. Carlisle says that if the people of Ohio will let Senator Sherman and Gov. Foraker talk about the war and the (lags while the Democratic speakers talk about the laritf, the public lands, the right of local self-govern ment, and other matters affecting their real in terests the Democratic ticket will he elected. Dispatches tiom Columbus, Ohio, report a prospective alliance between the Democrats and Labor Party in the large mar ufactnring centres, with a view of capturing the Legisla ture. Ex-Gov. Foster says he has no feats of the entire success of the republican State tick et, hut admits that it will require good man agement and hard work to elect a good, strong republican Legislature. Although the International Medical Con gress does not meet till next week, delegates have already begun to arrive, and the pro gramme has been fotundated. Simply the ti tles of the disquisitions to he read and the names of the authors make a column of non pareil in an evening newspaper.

This is the first con signment of tobacco which has come from Northumberland county. Va.,lor a number of years past. Previous to the late war tobacco was grown in laige quantities by the fanners in that county. A number of farmers in tne same county have planted tobacco this season, and the prospect is very encouraging.—Balti more Sun. Governor Foraker’* career bids fair to be a striking exemplification of the old adage that if you let a fool or a scoundrel alone he is bound to hang himself sooner or latvr. He first achieved national notoriety by posing as a patriot, and has never bobbed up since then without nauseating In* hearers with a dose of the bloody shirt or the rebel flags. It was, of course, to he expected that if then* was a dis graceful row during the stay of the Grand Ar my men at Wheeling Governor Foraker would he in the midst of it. But his conduct in this instance seems to have cast all his past achieve mants into the shade. Like all demagogues, he finds now that each speech must he more bitter and vindictive than the preceding one to make any impression. It w ill h next in order lor him to endeavor to raise an array of Ohioans to quell the rebellious South. What a comment upon the Hepuhlicans is it that they honot such leaders as Blaine. Platt, Quay, i Mahoue and Foraker. New York Slur. The United States Express Company, which has its headquarters in New York, Wednesday made official announcement of the fact that it had completed negotiations as signing to it all the contracts, franchises and properties of the Baltimore and Ohio Express Ciinpiny. The contract assigi s3O years’ pos session to the United States Express Compare, and begins to operate on Thursday. Scptem- | ter Ist’ The statement is made on behalf of j the United Slates Express that ‘ this adds j about 5,000 miles of territory to the 15,000 j I miles already operated by the United Stales 1 ■ Express Company,and makes it the most pow erful company of its kind in America. The | negotiations for the sale have tieen in < pera- j ! tion for the last six weeks and were concluded i between Mi. Samuel Spencer, the first vic< - president of the Baltimore and Ohio, and Mr | T. C. Platt, of the I idled Stales, on terms ' most favorable to the latter, to whom the con- j tract will prove a large additional source of revenue.” OUR WASHINGTON LETTER Washington, D. C., A to. 20'h, 1887- It seems to me that the public land policy , I of this administration commends it to the fa-| vorofthe people far more than any other; measure it has adopted. There has been no cessation In the great work of overhauling the swindling manipulations of hungry land sharks, and tne powerful railroad corpora tions have also been made to disgorge much of a free people's birth-right, ruthlessly given away by Republican Administration. Under the Swamp-land law, passed by Congress in 1850, authority was granted certain States, with public lands in their borders, to drain i and reclaim all swamp and overflowed lands, j preparing them for purpose* of agriculture.— Later acts were passed, granting to the Slates with such lands an indemnity of $1.25 per acre for each acre of swamp land sold hy the Government after the act of 1820 and up to the date of the indemnity act of 1855. Then •n 1857 Congress passed a law securing to each State the titles to such tracts as were condemned by the sevetal States as swamp lands. Now, so far as can he ascertained, Louisiana is the only State that lias made any attempt to reclaim these lands, and that was soon abandoned. You can see at a thought what a vast field of fraud was invit ingly opened by the Government, full advan tage of which was taken by thousands of un scrupulous persons who falsely swore away millions of acres of the most fertile public lands, settlers and the ITitte.l States lind agents often making a “combine" against the Government in their nefarious work. As the swamp law was passed soma thirty-seven years ago, if the law had been carried out in good faith, the States would have long since reclaimed all such lands ; but, still, “swamp land claims” are being almost daily present ed. The malicious attack made upon Com missioner Sparks is solely due to his efforts to check and correct this gigantic swindle—for which he is entitled to the highest praise. Civil Service Reform seems to be making pretty fair progress under the new regula tions requiring clerks in office to he examined. A few days ago the Civil Service Commission received from the Secretary of the Navy a re quest for the certificates of 212 elig ihlcs—all males—from which 53 selections may he made to till existing vacancies. To supply this, the largest requisition ever mule on the Commission, at least four certificates wore made for each of the four States and Territo ries. The Civil Service Commissioners are divided in opinion in regatd to the power of dismissal, Mr. Edgerton holding that the appointing authority has absolute power of dismissal, while his colleagues contend that such power is restricted hy the Civil Service Law. The liueistale Commerce Law seems to he steadily growing in popular favor. Senator Butler, of South Carolina, who opposed the measure, has been won over by his recent experience in a railroad collision,and in con sequence, he pro;oses to Introduce amend ments to the law, regulating the speed of train* and limiting the time of railroad em ployees to twelve hours consecutive service in a day. The testimony in seven contested election cases has been received and printed by the cierk of the House tf Representatives, which, I believe, is a much smaller number than usual. At the last Cabinet meeting, for the first time during this administration, all the mem bers were absent, except Secretary Bayard— the other portfolios being represented by As sistant Secretaries. As it is regarded as practically settled that president Cleveland will lie renominated, some interest is being manifested in the nomi nation for the Vice-President, and both Post- Master General Vilas and Commissioner Black have been often mentioned Many long headed Democratic statesmen and politicians are understood to favor a soldier for second place, and it U probale the President is of the same opinion. A pair of good Republicans, one a claim at torney, and the other a g iveniiuent clerk were arrested a few days since for stealing public ’ records from the Pension Office. For such a , crime the punishment is five years in the pen itentiary. Neui Advertisements. Truant Wanted.
