o The Leading 8 Weekly Newspaper of Allegany 8 County, Maryland 8 iOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO FORTY-THIRD YEAR. NO. 17 WHICH IS THE TRUE CHURCH? A Question of the Centuries to Be Answered in the Frosttourg Opera House Next Sunday Evening. /•. ...IIS fcl Ik ' Pastor Hoskins of New York City. Our citizens will be interested in the announcement that Pastor Hoslcins, of New York City, will speak at 7:30 o’clock next Sunday evening, at the Frost burg Opera House. The theme for discussion, “Which is the True Church?” is one of great importance. The conflicting creeds dividing Christendom into numerous antagonistic sects, are confusing, each one claiming to be the one true Church which the Lord and the Apostles planted. Pastor Hoskins throws a flood of light on this question, making use of many Scriptures which are generally overlooked or ignored, and he invites all, regardless of belief or creed, to come together to ascertain what the Bible has to say on this important theme. His discussion is from an unsec tarian standpoint, and will be of interest to Jew or Gentile. The speaker is a Bible authority of note. He has lectured in the principal cities of the land, to large and appreciative audiences; he considers his sub ject as being a question uppermost in the minds of most people, and doubt less an intellectual religious treat awaits those who will be privileged to hear him. This is under the auspices of the 1. B. S. A., and as usual it will be free to the public. SIGN BOARD DAY. Vandals Defacing Natural Scenery . by Cheap John Advertising Methods Should Have a , Care. , An act of the last Legislature, Chapter 824, Section 9, makes it amis- : demeanor for any one to place adver- ; tisements or notices other than notices ! : posted in pursuance of law, along a ; public highway, or on private property | ; without first obtaining the written ! i consent of the owner, and no one but a cheap skate owner of property will | , give consent to have his buildings and j fences daubed up with unsightly ad vertisements. The State Board of Forestry, which is charged with the enforcement of this law, desires the co-operation of 1 every public-spirited citizen in mak ing this law effective throughout the 1 state. The state is spending millions of dollars and the counties large sums ( in improving the roads to facilitate : transportation and travel. Alongthese good roads are unsightly bill boards i and advertisements that detract much - from the beauty of the country, and . which nearly everybody wants to see ■ eliminated. Under this new law it will be possible to do this. The State Board of Forestry desires the co-operation of every public-spirit ed citizen in eliminating from the roadsides within the right-of-way of . public roads in the state all bill boards, . advertisements and unauthorized post ers, and to this end proposes that Saturday, June 20th, shall be observ ed as “Sign Board Day.” In order that this work may be done systemat ically and under supervision, every ; one who will volunteer is requested to so notify the State Forester, Balti more, Maryland, or the lccal Forest Warden, stating what road or section of the road he can take care of. He will then be supplied with an official badge, a copy of the law, and full in structions. This is a public move ment for beautifying roadsides in which all should be interested and give their aid. Local Option Campaign. The local option campaign in Garrett county will open at Mountain Lake Park on June 5, when an ad dress will be delivered by Dr. Thomas M. Hare, superintendent of the Anit-Saloon League of Maryland. He will be introduced by State Sena tor Harvey M. Speicher, the author of the Garrett County Local Option bill. Come and Bring Your Friends. Pastor Hoskins, of New York, will lecture on “Which is the True Church,” next Sunday, 7:30 p. m., in the Frostburg Opera House. Seats free, No collection. —Advt. THE FROSTBURQ SPIRIT C Warning to Automobllists. ( Last Thursday evening L. M. Strite, ] State Deputy Commissioner of Motor t Vehicles, was a caller at The Spirit < office. Mr. Strite came here from his office in Baltimore to investigate re- ( ports of alleged violations of the laws C relating to the running of automobiles, i and he reported to The Spirit that he s found considerable violation of said a laws in this city. The principal vio- s lation he found here was the running of automobiles by persons under 18 years of age, which is strictly forbid- f den by the laws of this commonwealth, j Every auto driver in Maryland must j have a license, and no one under 18 , years of age can procure a license. There are several different - kinds of license required; there being a differ ent license for a hired chauffeur from that required for a person running his or her own car. Different kinds of tags are also re- t quired, and dealers, owners of cars , for hire, delivery purposes, or for j personal or family use, are all under ( different regulations, and it will be ( well for all autoists to post themselves on what the law requires of them. ; Otherwise they may be arrested at any time and compelled to pay fines for violations of the law. Deputy Strite informed The Spirit , that the automobile law is not being very well observed in Frostburg, either through ignorance of the law or wilfully, and that arrests and fines are liable to follow if the violations continue. 1 “Which is the True Church?” 1 This will be the subject discussed ' at the Frostburg Opera House, next 1 Sunday, 7:30 p. m.

In about six months I the day to cast the ballot which shall drive the saloon from the entire county will be here. That day will be the greatest day in the history of , Garrett county. Thousands of : ballots will be cast for God, Home and Humanity. Keep the thought in !. your mind. From this most western county of the State the word should , be sent down into the valleys and , throughout the State: “That Gar rett county has driven Rum and its \ ruinous work out of the county, by a J tremendous majority.” We can do it.

FROSTBURG, MD, THURSDAY, MAY* 28, 1914 UP TO SHERIFF TO FIND BERKLEY Valentine Hay Plaintiff in New Ac tion Against the Somerset Ab sconder and Ball Moose Fake Reformer. From The Meyersdale Republican. Another equity case involving the alleged shady manipulations of Harvey M. Berkley, former secretary and treasurer of the Somerset Tele phone Company and Bull Moose candidate for Congress in 1912, was instituted in the court of common pleas of Somerset county last Thurs day, in which the plaintiff is Attor ney Valentine Hay of Somerset. The bill filed by Attorney Hay furnishes the sheriff’s office the interesting job of locating Berkley who has been missing since Aug. 21 last, in the following language: “The court is requested to make an order for the service of the bill, etc., as re quired by law.” Borrowed SIO,OOO. Berkley borrowed SIO,OOO from Hay Aug. 14, 1911, on a judgment note payable in six months, giving as collateral 480 shares of what pur ports to be stock in the Somerset Telephone Company, having a par value of $25 per share and called for by certificate No. 294. The stock certificate was indorsed in blank and assigned to Hay. Berkley is charged with “raising” the number of shares for which the certificate was original ly issued. The plaintiff says Berkley never paid any thing on the principal but made two interest payments as fol fows: Feb. 14, 1912, S3OO and Aug. 14, 1912, S3OO. He says he demand ed that Berkley pay the note in full Aug. 20, 1913, the day before Berk ley fled the county, Sept. 30, 1913, he again demanded payment of the note within 30 days, serving a written notice to that effect on Berkley’s wife in his absence, and threatening to sell the teelphone stock at public sale if payment was not made. The note with accumu lated interest now amounts to $11,500. Attorney Hay says the goods and chattels, of Berkley are within thf jurisdiction of the Somerset court, but that Berkley himself, who is the proper and necessary party, is out side the jurisdiction of the court and cannot by diligent inquiry on the part of the plaintiff be found so as to be properly served with the pro cess. The plaintiff also asks the court to order Berkley to pay the plaintiff the sum of $11,500 due on the note within 30 days, and if he fails to do so, the court shall decree when and where the collateral security shall be sold at public sale. Order by the Court. Judge Ruppel hase issued an order that Berkley shall be required within thirty days to cause an appearance to be entered, and to file his answer within thirty days to the bill of com plaint, and if he fails to comply with said directions by not entering ap pearance within thirty days or by not filing his answer within thirty days after service upon him by publication, he shall be liable to have this hill taken pro confesso and a decree made against him in his absence; and it is further ordered that unless said defendant shall pay plaintiff amount due on said note by the Ist day of July, 1914, and shall redeem said stock by that time that plaintiff shall sell the stock at public sale after due notice by advertisement, at the court house Somerset, Pa., on July 18th, 1914, at one o’clock p. m. Seen in New York. A few weeks ago a prominent Som erset man, who had known Berkley for many years, upon returning from a trip to New York, stated that he had seen Berkley and watched him for some time. He said there could be no doubt of the indentity of the missing stock juggler and Bull Mooser. Berkley, according to the Somerset man, hase raised a heard since he disappeared. The fact that no steps were taken that would pro vide for the returning of Berkley to Somerset county has been much dis cussed and the' instituting of the pre sent proceedings will likely result in efforts being made to apprehend the fugitive. Congressional Contest. Congressman David J. Lewis is not taking much interest in Postmaster General Burleson’s effort to remove Republican postmasters and put Democrats in their places as far as Garrett County is concerned. Mr. Lewis will not begin to poll the vote he did in 1912. A staunch Republi can said a day or two ago that with Senator Zihlman of Allegany County as his opponent he could not win out. With these two men in the field Garrett County would poll its usual majority for the Republican ticket. Senator Zihlman is very popular among the miners and labor ing men of the county. The Republi cans of Garrett County can see no reason why the Sixth District should not elect a Republican Congressman next fall. —Cumberland News. A GREAT DAY FOR FROSTBURG SCHOOLS The First Annual Track Meet and Field Sports a Great Success— Parade of School Children an Interesting Feature. The events outlined in the above heading were a great success, last I Friday, and people are still talking of the many interesting features of the day. The parade of school children was very large and interesting, and it is said that not less than 1,400 pupils were in line. Many were heard to re mark that they had no idea that Frostburg had so many children of school age, and truly it was an “eye opener” for many. But large as the parade was, it did not begin to represent all the children of school age in this city, for be it known that the colored pupils were not in the parade, and neither were the pupils of the parochial school, numbering several hundred more. Then too, there are a good many chil dren in Frostburg of school age that - attend no school, because they are not compelled to, as they should be. The parade started promptly at 10:30 : from the yard of Beall High School and followed a line of march includ ing the principal streets of the town. The Frostburg City Band was in the ■ lead. Following them rode Prof. : Earl Carmony, the chief marshal. The members of the four classes of 1 Beall High School, followed by the pupils of the various grades of the Grammar school, formed the first di vision of the parade. Then came 1 Hill street schools, marshalled by J. Glenn Beall, Harold Eichhorn and 1 Charles A. Mann. Following them • came the Model School department of 1 the State Normal School in charge of : members of the Normal senior class. The rear of the parade was made up of automobiles bearing the teachers 1 of the various schools. This feature of the parade brought forth a good deal of criticism, and The Spirit thinks it was just criticism. 1 “The teachers riding should be march- ■ ing with their pupils,” was the remark heard on all sides, but perhaps the teachers riding had corns or other good reasons for not walking. The line of march was lined with people, and as the little marchers ' stepped proudly along they were ap plauded by admiring parents and 1 friends. Among the marshals of the parade, aside from those mentioned, were: William E. Noel, Dr. E. A. Smith, Upton B. F. Edwards, William H. Cook, Rev. W. S. Nicholson, Wal ter E. Jeffries and Prof. Olin R. Rice. '■ The Junior class of the Beall High - School was awarded the honors for - most attractive appearance. They wore dresses and hats of white, trim med with lavender, and marched be hind a banner of the same colors. The costumes all through were very i attractive, however, and it was hard for most people to determine which ; grade made the handsomest appear ance. The parade disbanded at the school ! grounds, where a brief address was made by School Commissioner Thom- I as H. Morgan. In the afternoon the great feature of the day took place, the first annual track meet ever held by Beall High School. i In a series of athletic events on the track field of Beall High School, par- 1 ticipated in by track men from Alle gany County Academy, Allegany County High School, Keyser Prepara tory School and Piedmont School, the Beall High boys came away the vic tors, after a contest that was replete with spectacular events and good ! sportsmanship. Two thousand spectators lined the upper grounds of the campus over looking the track field, where chairs and benches were provided, and an other thousand found places around the lower field, along Broadway, and in automobiles. About seventy-two pupils from the Keyser school were here, and they were jolly, good rooters. Cumberland also sent a strong delegation. The entries were as follows: From Keyser Preparatory School, Lynn Mott, Walter Hallah, Fred Jones, Vinten Galleon, Joseph Spicer and Paul Hartman. These men were in charge of Prof. Bushrod Grimes, who will take them’to Fairmont next Sat urday for the West Virginia Collegiate. Piedmont sent H. Gilmore, S. Gil more, C. Rashorn and T. Davis. These boys were in charge of Prof. Robert Clark and Superintendent W. H. S. White. Allegany County High School sent eight men in charge of W. H. Boxley, secretary of the Central Y. M. C. A., of Cumberland. They were: Willison, Walker, Gommers, Keller, Gordon, Spriggs, Bradley and Burch. Allegany County Academy had one representative, S. Nicholson. The Beall High School athletes , were: C. Kaefer, R. Cook, J. Watson, T. McMannis, Willard Price, N. Metz ger, H. McKenna, M. Weisenborn, Oliver McLane and C. Aden Hamill. The score by points was: Beall High School, 28; Keyser Preparatory' School, 18; Allegany County High School, IS; Allegany County Academy, 2; Piedmont High School, 0.

More Fish for Gerrett Streams. Fish Commissioner W. A. Smith spent part of the past week in the vicinity of Frostburg and Lonacon ing. A consignment of 20,000 three weeks old brook trout was placed in Murphy Run, a tributary of Savage river. Another consignment of 20,000 trout will be sent next week for planting in another more distant tributary of Savage river. Mr. Smith arranged for the ap pointment of several fish wardens to police the fish streams of Garrett county that are now being stocked by the state. The fish law passed by the Legislature for Garrett county prohibits trout fishing until 1916, when the baby trout with which the streams have been stocked this year will have achieved a size of between six and eight inches and have begun spawning. Commissioner Smith was in Oak land recently and met Charles G. Long, one of the employes of the State hatchery at Druid Hill Park, who brought 32,000 young trout to this place which were placed in the following streams: Roaring Creek, Sang Run, Wilson’s Run, Totten Run, Herrington Creek, Bull’s Run, Mil ler’s Run, and Bradley Run. Fish ing in these streams is unlawful until 1916. Next week Mr. Smith will receive a consignment of trout to be placed in the northern part of the county from Confluence. —Oakland Republi can. “Which is the True Church?” Hear Pastor Hoskins, give the Scrip tural answer to this important ques tion, next Sunday, 7:30 p. m., at the Frostburg Opera House.

Noah MacKenzie, a farmer re siding on the old “Moore place” be tween the Savage Mountains, had two sheep killed and three badly crippled by dogs last week. The animals were from high bred stock and very valuable. One of the most dangerously injured was an expen sive young ewe, which Mr. Mac- Kenzie had recently bought for breeding purposes. The many un trained shepherd dogs, fox hounds and worthless curs that are permit ted to roam about are doing much damage to Garrett county stock and undoubtedly discouraging the in dustry of sheep raising, which if properly protected, should some day make this section of the county rich. —Mountain Democrat. “Which is the True Church?” Hear the Scriptural answer to this important question, next Sunday, 7:30 p. m., at the Frostburg Opera House.

The Bible question meeting- con ducted in the Frostburg Opera House last Sunday evening, by Pastor R. Grant Jolly, of New York City, under . the auspices of the International Bible Students’ Association of America, was . attended by a large audience, and the . meeting was one of the most interest - ing religious gatherings held in Frost burg in many years. The speaker has the right name, for his pleasant manner, pleasing counte ; nance, and easy and concise delivery, indicate that he is a jolly person. The speaker spent practically all of his time in answering a big lot of Bible questions that had been handed to the ushers for him, and some of them were questions that have been puzzling many theologians and other people for years, yea, for ages. But the able speaker and Bible student . handled them all in a masterful way, and the audience in general pro nounced his answers the most logical they ever heard. However, the questions handed in were too numerous to be answered in an hour, the time usually consumed by the I. B. S. A. lecturers, and after speaking that length of time, the learned New Yorker said he would de vote a half-hour more to answering the qustions, if a considerable number of the audience desired him to do so. He therefore asked all those who desired him to proceed further with the answers, to hold up their hands. Immediately about three fourths of the hands went up, affid the few who desired to withdraw on ac count of the lateness of the hour, were given a chance to do so, after which the speaker continued his re marks, and the large audience still remaining was held spellbound until the last question was answered. Truly it was an evening profitably spent by all present, and the lecture next Sunday, at the same place, by Pastor Hoskins, who will speak on the subject, “Which is the True Church?” will doubtless be one of the most in teresting lectures of the entire se ries. A rare treat and much interest ing information is in store for all who turn out to hear him. The lecture of Pastor Hoskins will complete the series of I. B. S. A. lec tures started here in January, but the Photo Drama of Creation, which will also be under the auspices of the I. B. S. A., will follow at an early date, to be officially announced in this pa per when the proper time conies. Furthermore, two other interesting I. B. S. A. lectures will likely be giv en in the Frostburg Opera House some time in July, at which time it is plan ned to have some of the best I. B. S. A. speakers in the United States here.

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOCOOOOOOOOO o 8 Successor to 8 The Frostburg Mining Journal § Established 1871 WHOLE NUMBER 2,206 GOOD HOMES FOR 1 NEEDY ORPHANS. Amish Mennonites Found a Benevolent Institution for Little Ones. From The Meyersdale Republican. There has just been issued from . The Republican press a booklet con taining the constitution and by-laws of the Amish Mennonite Orphans’ Home Association adopted by unani mous congregational vote at Maple . Glen meeting house near Grantsville, Md., Dec. 7, 1913, and at Cherry . Glade meeting house, near Bittinger, Md., Dec. 14, 1913, and by the Pigeon River Church, Huron county, Mich., Dec. 28, 1913. The object of the association is to maintain a Home for orphaned, needy and dependent children, re gardless of race or parental religion, and for placing such as are advisable into private homes to be cared for and brought up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. The Home is to be temporarily es tablished in Garrett county, Md., but eventually at the discretion of the trustees, in Somerset county, Pa., the association to be incorporated under the laws of Pennsylvania for that purpose. Children will be kept in the Home only so long as will be required to find a suitable family in which to place them. All members of the Conservative and Old Amish Menno nite congregations may be members of the association. The movement is fathered by leading ministers and members of those branches of the Amish Mennonite Church—earnest Christians who are willing to give of their time and substance to minister to orphaned children not adequately provided with good homes. The moral, as well as the physical wel fare of the children is to be looked after, and they are to be given the opportunity to attend the public schools the same as other children. The Home is to be established and maintained entirely by free will offerings. The association will be glad at any time to hear of children in need of such fostering care. AVI persons interested may be assured that any children entrusted to the care of these good will be fortunate indeed. _ “Which is the True Church?” Every thinking person will be inter ested in hearing this question answer ed next Sunday, 7:30 p. m., at the Frostburg Opera House Advt. GROWTH OF WOMAN SUFFRAGE. In Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, Idaho, California, Washington, Oregon, Kan sas, Arizona and Alaska, women have full suffrage. In Illinois women vote upon practically all questions, except for members of State Legislature. This means that in the next presiden tial election nearly four millions of women will be enabled to voice their preference for the president of the United States, and maybe a determin ing party factor. The movement to give the vote to Southern women is becoming very active, and it would be a fine tribute to the intelligence and worth of our Southern womanhood to place them on a political plane where thqir opin ions and judgement could be voiced in the state. The South needs the council and help of its women, and votes for women should be the chival rous aim of every true Southern man. The Southern States Woman Suff rage Conference is organized for the purpose of securing the vote for the women of the Southern states. Rec ognizing the qualifications now exist ing in the states relative to the vote, Southern women ask only that the same privilege be accorded to their sex. This is an eminently fair de mand, and one to which all Southern men with any sense of justice can agree. Whatever applies to South ern men is applicable to Southern women. Nothing more is asked, noth ing less should be given. In addition to the ten states in which women now have the right of the ballot, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota and Nevada may en franchise their women at the elections next November. Oklahoma, Ohio, Nebraska and Missouri have initiative petitions in circulation which will enable the vot ers of the respective states to show their true appreciation of their women. Of this group of states the Oklahoma petition will be submitted in August, and if carried, will permit Oklahoma ' women to vote at the State election in November. The most intelligent women of the variou s Southern states will form the Advisory Council of the Southern States Woman Suffrage Conference. This is a history-making group, and will place the South in its proper place of political importance and prom inence. Pastor Hoskins. At the Frostburg Opera House, Sun day next, 7:30 p. m.—Advt.
