Election, Tuesday, November 4, 1919.
Mr. Ray For* Tax Commissioner.
Governor Harrington has named J.
Enos Ray to the State Tax Commission
to fill the vacancy caused by the death
of Arthur P. Gorman. Commissioner
William W. Beck, now the Democratic
associate member, it is believed, will
be made chairman in Mr. Gorman’s
place, and Mr. Ray will become the
associate member. The chairman is
paid $6,000 a year and the associate
members $5,000.
Having appointed Mr. Ray, the Gov
ernor up the appointment of
a successor a to him as State Auditor.
It is understood that he will appoint
either William A. Gillespie, of Balti
more, or Thomas J. Murray, of Cecil
county, who are deputies under Mr.
Ray.
Mr. Ray, whose term of office in the
Tax Commission will expire in June, is
the Democratic organization leader in
this county and is a strung supporter of
Senator Smith. He served several
terms in the House of Delegates v and
was Speaker in the session of 1908.
He was the Democratic candidate for
Congress in the Fifth distxict a little
later, but was defeated. His friends
look upon him as a solid and industri
ous man. He is a lawyer and Jives at
Chillurn, near Washington.
We extend to Mr. Ray our hearty
congratulations, and wish him success
in his new field of work.
Outlook Bright for Democrats.
■The State Contention has met, adopt. I
ed the platform of principles on which
the candidates will ask for the votes of
the people, has ratified the nominations
already made by the democratic voters,
and the campaign has now been formal
ly opened, although Mr. Ritchie has
"'fceen making a strmu us personal cam
paign for several weeks.
Aid it is the opinion of all those
whose knowledge and experience in
such matters are of value, that the out
look for a decided victory for the whole
democratic ticket ia extremely bright.
For the first time in a long period of
years there are no so-called Independ
ent democrats who are fighting their
party nominees—the Independents are
ail in line and are among the most en
thusiastic supporters of the ticket. ' 1
In every campaign beginning with that
of 1875, the brains, and often the fuuas
which gave strengh and vigor to the
opposition to all democratic ticket,
were furnished by a large number of
nfiuential democrats who were dissatis
fied with the party leaders, the party
management, and the party nominees.
This year that sort of encouragement to
the republicans is lacking, and they are
compelled to go it-.ialone. If their can
didates secure any democratic votes,
taey will be few and for between
and there will be no organized support
for Mr. Nice and his colleagues outside
of the usual republican machine sup
port, and the local machine of the radical
republican party of Maryland has been
in a rather rickety condition over since
the death of theiate Wm. F. Stone who
was the ablest leader that party has had i
in Baltimore since its organization at *
the close of the civil ,war. An I while j
the republicans are putting on a hold ,
front and are doing their best to make '
people believe that all is harmony in j
their ranks, there is abundant evidence j
that such is not the case. On the con- <
trary, everybody here knows that the i
hostility between the factions is great- *
er then ever. The Lowndes-Golds- j
borough followers are, if possible, t
more bitter than ever against the *
Weller-Jackson control of the party *
organization, and Mr. Weller has not r
abated his hostility to the former Gov- v
ernor and his friends, especially Mr. c

Lowndes. If any of those distinguish
ed gentiemen ever say anything pleas
ant about each other, no one ever
heard it. and there is no record of it
ever discovered.
For the first time in many years the
democrats have a candidate for Gover
nor who has a great amount of|personal
magnetism, and a very large number of
warm and influential personal friends,
especially among the young and middle
aged men, and those frvmda are not
confined to the member of his own
party. These personal friends and ad
mirers of Mr. Ritchie are taking hold of
his campaign with great 'vigor, and are
preparing to canvass the city from end
to end in his behalf. In fact, some of
them have been at work for him long
before the public announcement was
made of his candidacy, and that they
did excellent work is evidenced by the
fact that no effort was made by any
one in Baltimore to interfere with his
nomination, and long before the close
of the lists he was recognized in all
parts of the State as practically the
unanimous choice of the Gity demo
crats for the honor. So great had be
come hie strength before tlw oeople
that no one would enter the list e against
him, altho strong efforts were xnvde to
induce one distinguitned man adttjr an
other to make the tight. Nt since
1891, when Frank Brown wae [nominat
ed, has a candidate been chosen by the
democrats without a serious fight.
John E. Hurst was nominated in 18951
after a contest which made a t tmpor !
ary wreck of the party and resu Ited in
the election of the republican candi-;
date. John Walter Smith was nomi-[
nated in 1899 after a hard fight in
which Edwin Warfield came ' near I
carrying off the prize, and Edwin VVar- >
. field was only named in 1902 after the
late senior Senator Arthur P. Gorman
- had interfered and dragged the late
; Spencer C. Jones out of the race, much
against Mr. Jones’ will. Again in 1907
the late Governor Crothers was nomi
• nated after a vigorous and unpleasant
1 fight against the late Henry Williams
! and Mr. Joseph D. Baker, and the last
two contests named in 1911, when
. Arthur P. Gorman was nominated over
; Blair Lee, and again in 1915 when
Governor Harrington defeated Blair
Lee, are fresh in the memory of all.
With a candidate named in such a
way, with every qualification for the
; place, there ought to be no doubt as to
; the outcome of election in November,
and in the minds of most people, there
i is no doubt.

J TO THE SOUTHERN
i MARYLAND FARMERS: {
£ The world is crying to the American Farmers for f
a food. This winter you planned to plant and work the
s largest crop ever planted in the history of America, but
Q the late rainy season this spring - have upset your plans a
* and you are facing two roads. *
The road that you are now on will lead you to rough a
® traveling, you will have to cut your crop short if you
7 continue on it, because you cannot possibly get your j
? land prepared in time to plant the crop you intended to m
v grow, thereby cutting short the food that is sadly need- f
a ed, also taking from you the benefit of the high prices c
9 of market produce that you should receive from your f
a furni. ®
a The OTHER ROAD IS SMOOTH and easy to g
travel; we will help you, and show you how you can
® catch up with your work, and even plant more than J
7 you had planned to. That field that you have left un- a
? touched to grow up in weeds, will pay all of your this ®
v year’s farming. I
a Mr. Henry Ford has placed in the reach of every ®
I farmer in Maryland, “A FORDSON TRACTOR”, the I
i greatest farm implement ever put on the market. By *
a its use you can catch up with your work; do it better; f
£ do it quicker, and do it for one fourth the expense. a
a We are in a position to help you by making TERMS
to suit you, and show you how this LITTLE WONDER f
? will earn its weight in Gold.
Write our representative, and have him come to ®
a your place. *
