There lias been some talk about Senator Dick’s personal and political associations, and these have been used in numerous instances by his opponents and their henchmen to in duce, if possible, Republicans to vote against Mr. Dick in the primary. Some will tell the non-union man that Senator Dick is dangerous on labor matters, and that his influence and sympathy are always with the radical element. The union man is told that Mr. Dick is very close to • i".iin individuals who are antagon loLiu Co labor unions and organiza tions. Anti-Pearre people are com pelled to listen to the twaddle that if Mr. Dick is nominated and elected he will be tlie medium through whom our Congressman will manip ulate his wires. Pearre’s friends are held up and filled with the nonsense that Senator Dick is making an effort to set up a machine of his own and that if he wins he will succeed the Colonel in commanding the Repub lican forces in Allegany county. The miners and working people are re galed with stories of combinations with the railroad and corporate in terests which will prevent Senator Dick from exercising his free will and individual efforts if he is called upon to represent the people in the Maryland Senate, and on the other hand the representatives of these same railroads and corpoi’ations are privately “tipped off” that Dick is their mortal enemy, that he is cheek by jowl with the strike-makers and the rioters, and that his success will mean the enactment of laws that will deprive them of their rights and in flict divers great wrongs and injus tices upon them. And so it goes on. In truth these “campaigners” are putting a high estimate upon the intelligence of the voetrs and the gentlemen to whom, this silly rant is carried ! Their very conduct.in disseminating these varied and conglomerate excuses for voting, agad><y, Dick will convince the rea son aoTc man that Dick is the most desirable candidate—that is, if they prefer an independent man to repre sent them in the upper house of the General Assembly. If Dick is both a Pearrc and anti-Pearre man; if he is friendly with both the ai.ion and anti-union man; if he can shake hands with the representatives of the corporations and their employes; in short, if he is that sort of man, who can enjoy the confidence and friend ship of the diversified interests and elements of this county, is he not peculiarly fitted to fill a position where his duties will require that he represent the whole people, regard less of their opinions, occupations or personal prejudices? When they argue that Senator Dick is able to count as his friends all grades and classes of citizens, they are making the best possible argument in his be half. A man who is so liberal in his views, so broadminded and so devoid of bigotry and conceit as to accord to every man his right to take his ' place in any portion of the business : and industrial world without criti cism and abuse, he is decidedly a very rare individual, and the very one of 1 all others who is peculiarly fitted to legislate in the interest of all the ‘ people and without doing injustice . to anyone. ] If a comparison of the collars worn by the candidates whose heelers are most industrious in promulgating these heresies were necessary, we would need but direct attention to the Associated Merchants of Cum berland, to the professional ticket slashers, and to the aristocratic in fluences that are managing Mr. Doub’s campaign. It is unnecessary to say that Mr. Doub would have for his advisers men who have brought themselves into contempt and dis repute in the Republican party by their political conduct in recent years, and that, notwithstanding Mr. Doub’s high-minded ideas and dec larations, if elected, he will be their medium through whom they will Continue Those who are gaining flesh and strength by regular treat ment with Scott’s Emulsion should continue the treatment In hot Weather: smaller dose little cool milk with It will I \ d ° away with any objection which is attached to fatty pro ; ducts during the heated , season.

It is not necessary to analyze the principles and the men Mr. Sloan will represent should he be successful. They, not he, will be the winners, and they, not he, will he the real representatives of the people in the Senate of this State. No collar adorns (?) the neck of the “ People’s Candidate,” Hon. D. E. Dick. He is free to talk and act and vote as he wills in the Senate as anywhere else, and if he believes he is right, no man, whatever his posi tion, whatever his political standing, will be able to dictate to him what he shall or shall not do. Which of these men can best serve the best interests of all the people ? Let your vote on September 2 he your answer, Republicans. BOODLE AND THE SENATORSHIP. In the early days of the primary campaign we were told by the journ alistic friends of Mr. D. Lindley 1 Sloan that one of the most significant sources of his strength would be “ the strong, wealthy Sloan influence.” We were not inclined to place much ; credence in this announcement then, but there is every indication now that the press agent of the Sloan candidacy knew what he was talk i ing about. We doubted it then, be > cause we believed that under the ; new primary law money could not be used. We now find that we were ! mistaken in this view; either that • or the law is being flagrantly violated i in the spirit if not in the letter. Information comes to us that the '< Cumberland barrel has been tapped, and that a golden stream is flowing ' unceasingly. The little rills and rivulets contributary to this reset'-' . voir of political gold may have been t dried up, or their course may have ' been changed to form a junction at f the fountain-head. At any rate, : there are reports of a lavish expen i diture of all kinds of money in the : interest of Mr. Sloan, and that it is i being doled out in awe-inspiring, if . not vote-getting, quantities. As we i understand it, one of the first mo • tives for the new primary law was to prevent corruption and debauch ery of the franchise. While the law . will not permit Mr. Sloan, the candi date, himself to spend more than a , limited sum, it is announced that Mr. Wellington is supplying money in plenty for all legitimate purposes >and otherwise. j .i Of course, we can all understand why Mr. Wellington is so much in ; terested in Mr. Sloan, and why he is so anxious for the “nice , young man’s ” success. Mr. Sloan is Mr. Wellington’s man—he owns him po litically as surely and as securely as if he had an ante-bellum lien upon him—this is in reality Mr. Welling ton’s fight. Nor will we question the right of Mr. Wellington to spend his good hard-earned money in Mr. Sloan’s interest—which is his own. But we submit that the conscientious voter, the honest yeomanry, will re fuse to be purchased this year. Un der the old system of nominating a ticket, it was merely a matter of buy ing up a delegate or two from a dis trict here and there, either with a promise of office or the cold cash. But this year the people are in the saddle, and it will require more i money than Mr. Wellington’s bank . will hold to buy enough votes to , win his success through Mr. Sloan. It would, indeed, he a most dis- j tressing catastrophe if it were dent- ; onstrated that money could buy a • nomination when the people have 1 both the voice and vote. | We have too much faith in the ’ sterling integrity of the people, f They will vote according to their ] own determination, and they will i judge the candidates as they are in t making up their ticket. t The “ wealthy influences ” behind 1 Mr. Sloan will not persuade the peo ple into committing a vital error this year. The candidates must stand upon their merits —rich and poor alike. j* This may be a time when “money talks;” it is also an occasion when the people will do the voting. MR. DICK’S CHALLENGE. By inviting Hon. George L. Wel lington to participate with him in a joint discussion of the issues of the primary campaign Senator Dick has brought the entire matter directly home to Mr. Wellington and the Re publican voters of Allegany county. Mr. Wellington two weeks or more ago injected himself into the cam paign by declaring that his candidate is going to win in this primary con test, and by his more remarkable and reprehensible statement that he is preparing an entire ticket which the Republicans will he expected to vote at the coming primary ten days from now. That interview placed Mr. Wellington in a more prominent and conspicuous position than either of the State Senatorial candidates, and in determining to invite his most formidable opponent to a joint debate, Mr. Dick has again mani fested that sagacity which is char acteristic of him. Mr. Dick says he believes Mr. Wellington’s candidate, “Mr. Sloan, has neither the courage nor the abil ity” to meet him in a joint discus sion of these matters, and he, there fore, invites Mr. Wellington on the theory that the former Senator’s in terest in Mr. Sloan’s political wel fare will induce' him to represent that gentleman upon the platform. Senator Dick lays down in four propositions all that is involved in this contest — viz: the merits of the candidates; the issues and Mr. Sloan’s ability to meet them should he be nominated and elected; the motives and influences which have brought him into this contest, and the party qualifications which entitle both Mr. Sloan and Mr. Wel lington to ask and expect the be stowal of political honors by the Re publicans of Allegany county. To our mind the last proposition is by no means the least important of the subjects to be discussed. If Mr. Sloan’s and Mr. Wellington’s party qualifications are such as to place them upon an equality with those Republicans who have stood by the party regardless of personal whims and individual ambitions ; if they have been as true and loyal to the tenets and principles of Repub licanism in recent years as they were when they occupied high seats in the councils of the party; if they have not permitted their prejudices and disappointments to cause them to leave their party, then the Repub licans would like very much to know it. If it can he shown that their qualifications as party men have not been, and are not now, such as to en title them to the support of the laborers in the field, then it is a pertinent subject to be discussed publicly before the members of their party at this particular time. Aside from this, however, it will be interesting to know front Mr. Wellington’s own lips what he hopes his man, Sloan, to accomplish if the good Republicans should send him to the Maryland Senate as their rep.- resentative. It will be interesting to know just what sort of legislation Mr. Wellington and the candidate’s father, severally or jointly, will per mit him to strive for, and it is highly important to the interests of Alle gany county that the voters know beforehand what they may expect in the event of their throwing their patriotism and regularity away by voting for Mr. Sloan’s nomination. The Republican voters —the rank and file of the party—will await with interest WCiingUfa’g pleasure in the mattered Mr. Dick’s invita tion to meet him in the forum. A discussion by these gentlemen of the questions suggested is hound to prove of great public interest and of in calculable benefit to the Republican voters in rendering them much as sistance in determining for whom they will vote at the primary. It will mean the victory or the defeat of one of the candidates—Mr. Dick or Mr. Wellington’s man, Mr. Sloan. “The combat deepens; on, ye brave Who rush to glory or the grave.” SLOAN AND THE UNION LABEL. Senator Dick’s speeches have been characteristic of the occasion. He has met every cri deism and in sinuation that lias been raised against his candidacy, and he lias answered e.’ery objection his opponents have offered to his nomination. He has dignified the cowardly journalist and the scurrilous hack-biter by drag ging them from their hiding places and holding them up into the full glare of publicity. He lias s'lown that every man who has intimated that he is playing “a double game ” with his constituents, is either a flim-flammer, an “ acrobat ” or a paid hireling, and in some eases all these qualities are found in one as sailant. He has torn the mask from the pretended friends of labor, and lie has displayed the marked cards and the loaded dice of the political gambler. One of the greatest services he has rendered the public in his speech-making has been to show up the hypocrisy of those who have been antagonistic to the cause of union labor for years—all their lives in fact—hut who run to the union printer to get the “label” on their political printing in order to de ceive the honest workingman into the belief that they are his friend. Men who do not know the signific ance of the union label are boasting of their show of consideration for the union. They want the votes, and they don’t care how they get them. This is more than important m considering the claims of D. Lindley Sloan, one of Dick’s oppon ents. It is claimed on behalf of Mr. Sloan that union workingmen should vote against Senator Dick because the editor of this paper opposed Warner and the strike of 1900. Mr. Sloan should coach his friends to tell the voters also that his family in Lonaconing agreed en thusiastically with our policy during < that memorable contest between the I honest miners and the labor grafters. ; ■ Mr. Sloan ought to have liis liench • men say that credit at “ the corner grocery” was partially, and in nnm . erous instances totally, suspended , during that time, refusing to give - many of the striking miners food -for their children or clothing for - their wives. Mr. Sloan ought to car ? ry this information around with him - when he hands out his cards with - the “union” label upon them. He t then ought to ask himself, and see . that tlie people are around to hear r his answer, whether the Sloan.com i biuation is as consistent now in its s attitude toward the miners of 1 George’s Creek as we are. i Mr. Sloan’s campaign is one of ; deception from beginning to end. i It was conceived in deception, horn , in hypocrisy, and will meet the fate i it deserves. It is deception to tell - the people that Lindley Sloan is - competent to properly represent them - in the Maryland Senate; it is deceit 1 to tell the Republicans that his i family has been loyal to the party t and is deserving of the party’s f favor; it is hypocrisy for him to s shake the workingmen by/the hand 3 in a campaign when He'has never i done it (except in isolated cases;" 1 perhaps,) in his life before, 1 unless it was in Lonaconing when f he was a candidate for the State’s o Attorneyship. - Senator Dick has done the public ea good service in bringing the iiefar [i ions schemes and conduct ot his y political conspirators to the for.. s The public have a right to know the a true inwardness of these glad-hand i- candidates as their attitude relates to v the masses, and one of the most r beneficial results of the campaign t will he the opportunity the public - will have of tearing off the disguise e and dispersing the masqueraders. a This campaign tour of the Sen'a -1 tor’s is proving a great success, and r liis triumph over the swashbucklers will be accompanied by a stouter I knowledge of the impositions the -. people have submitted to for all s these years. It requires courage to e do what he is doing, but he has the i consciousness of truth and right, - and the result will justify his con y duct. l There is no longer any room in s Allegany county’s public affairs for - the dark-lantern politician. y More power and good luck to you, - Dave. You are, indeed, “ The Peo v pie’s Candidate.” i = == r VOTE FOR “A HOME BOY.” Some of Mr. D. Lindley Sloan’s friends—and Mr. Sloan himself in i some instances—have been appealing 1 to voters in Lonaconing for their 3 jfU'Pprt at.the coming . cause “he is a Lonaconing boy.” IV L tnotisru is au excellent excuse for ? shaping one’s public acts, and any man who follows the promptings of _ his patriotism in voting will most j always be on the right side of the . question, aud will come pretty near j voting for the right man. “Home boys” should receive our first con ? sideration when they have attained legal and mental qualifications io entitle them to look for an office. But in deciding this question definitely each voter who has made up his mind to vote for Mr. Sloan because “he is a home boy,” should first rnaßii.sure that he is what he is i represented to he. So far as legal . residence is concerned Mr. Sloan is I - not “a home boy.” He was not born in ; Lonaconing, and he is not a voter . in Lonaconing. He removed liis i voting residence to Cumberland ; nearly two a years ago. We do not know why he did so; that is no af- j fair of our’s. It may have been be cause he preferred Cumberland to j Lonaconing as a place of residence, i It may have been because the society in Cumberland is a little higher up than it is iff Lonaconing—there may be another upper crust in Cumber land, and Mr. Sloan is always at liis j best when he dons his evening suit and makes his appearance at social functions. It may be that Mr. Sloan desired to identify himself more close ly with professional men of liis class, and could not find the quality or the quantity here in the dear old town whose people have contributed so liberally toward whatever educa tion he possesses and the luxury and comforts which he enjoys. We have sometimes though that it was he-; cause he desired to run again for nn office some day, and, profiting by his former experiences, he saw more | votes in Cumberland than he has j ever been able to muster in a con test in Lonaconing. But, as we have said, the motive : that prompted him to withdraw his citizenship from Lonaconing and deposit it in Cumberland, is neith er here nor there. The fact is, how- 1 ever, that he is a citizen of Cumber land, and he votes there. He became; a voter at the county seat when he | registered there in October, 1903, and lie voted there that year. Hence, - Mr. Sloan is not “a home boy” tn the sense that he wants you to vole ! for him in Lonaconing as a Lana-I coning resident, which he is not. If it is a good argument that “a j ! home boy” should receive the vote j of Lonaconing people for the State " Senator, then the only aspirant for I] the office who is “a home boy” through and through, is Hon. David E. Dick, Mr. Dick was born here, he became a voter here, he is still a voter here and has always considered Lonaconing. good enough for him. - That is one reason why he is sacri • I ficing a $2,500-a-year position —so he ; might retain his legal residence in i Lonaconing, where he has spent so i many happy days, among the good s people who have done so much for ! him. If you vote for “ a home hoy,” Mr. Lonaconing Voter, Dave Dick is the i only eligible aspirant for State : Senator—the only one who can boast this qualification. In, that joint discussion of D. 1 Lindley Sloan’s fitness for the State Senatorial nomination, Mr. Welling- I ton might tell the public whether 5 Mf. Sloan will continue to use the 1 union label after the votes are count- He might also tell us when the ’ union label fever struck him, and 1 how the very serious attack was 3 j. brought about. > - i *" The esteemed George’s Creek 1 Press begins to read like the old ’ (Lonaconing Review when Rank ’ | wielded the fluent pen.

Hick Sends Replies To Alle l gaily Trades Council Anent Legislation l Last week the Allegany Trades Council . submitted twelve questions hearing on . legislation in the interest of the work a ingmen of the county to the candidates, asking that their replies be mailed to the 1 Trades Council by noon of Saturday last, ) Aug. 19. Hon. D. E. Dick, Saturday l morning forwarded a communication to r Mr. Charles O. Roemer, President of the Trades Council, answering all the queries. The letter in full is as follows: Lonaconing, Md., August, 18, 1905. Mr. Charles O. Roemer, Pres. Allegany Trades Council, 1 Cumberland, Md. Dear Sir : —ln reply to your circular letter of August 15, 1905, containing a series of questions of import to the Trades Unions and workingmen in this 5 county and State, I herewith answer said - questions in their regular order: r 1. lam in favor of direct legislation protecting Union workingmen, and if B elected to the Slate Senate will work for - the enactment of such law. The feature requiring employers to give the reason in e writing to a discharged employe within 1 six days of said employe’s discharge is one that I heartily favor, and will be b pleased to exert my best efforts for its enactment. 2. lam opposed to the companies tak ing any coal whatsoever from the miner’s i car because of its containing impurities, I and will certainly work for the repeal of the present law that allows the docking i of 500 pounds to a car. a 3. I have always been opposed to a miner doing work for nothing, and any dead work that is now done in this re gion will meet withmy hearty opposition, and I shall advocate the enactment of a law providing for ample pay for such i- work as you have specified. 't 4. I favor the division of the mining region into two inspection districts, as 1 , think there is plenty of room for two in ■ spectors in order to have the work efifect ively done. And I shall vote for the d appointment of these inspectors from an y elegible list to be submitted to the Gover e nor by the District Executive Board of i United Mine Workers. I secured the passage of a law such as this, through the 1900 session, but the bill was defeated '• by the Ways and Means Committee of the ‘ House, largely through the assistance of ■ three members of the Allegany delegation r in that session. It will giye me pleasure to again advocate this legislation. 1- 5. The Grand Jury' had the power, under the law of 1898 to recommend the dissmissal of the mine inspector in the a event of their finding him guilty of neg lect of duty, and it will be my purpose to 1 again have such a provision enacted into e law. j 6. I heartily favor an amendment to the State militia law making it obligatory e upon the sheriff to obtain the consent of a majority ot the Board of County Com ’’ missioners before he can call upon the - Governor to send the militia into any district where industrial disputes are pending. As the County Commissioners y are the representatives of the taxpayers of the county, the consent of at least a majority of them is a safeguard that I r believe yery wise, for in my judgement I had there been such a provision in 1894 the militia would neyer have come into 1 Allegany County during that strike, and the State and county would hayc been saved thousands of dollars, and the resi e dents in our mining region would have not suffered the embarrassment thrust upon them through having it appear necessary for State troops to come into our midst. 7. Ido favor the enactment of a law • oroyiding lor the inspectors of factories and mills, and will db all I can for its passage. 8. The oft-times unjust use of govern — hi the pastel as worked a hardship upon the workingmen of the State and country, 5 and legislation regulating the powers of e the judiciary in the issuing of said in junction in trade disputes is very neces sary, and will receive my earnest support “ 9. Detectives employed by corpora -1 tions have no right to materially interfere s with representatives of labor organiza g tions, and to otherwise seriously embar rass them in the discharge of their duties and I will vote and work for the enact i ment of a law giving the representatives f of organized labor such protection as they e should have on this question. 10. lam a believer in an eight-hour working day in all industries of the State, and will use-my vote and influence to r ward accomplishing such a system, ! 17. Ido not believe in unjust discrimi -3 nation in freight rates in railroads, and if elected will exeit my best efforts to ’ ward effecting the remedial legislation , suggested by the Associated Merchants 1 of Cumberland. > 12. I always regarded company stores f as unhealthful, and will do anything in f my power for the enactment of law pro ( hibiting them. In addition to answering these quest ions, I desire to state that during my six yearsof legislative service as memberfrom i Allegany county in the Maryland legisla . ture, it afforded me much pleasure to i advocate the enactment of such legisla tion as is outlined in most of these ques tions. In several instances the measure was secured and finally repealed; in an other instance it was defeated in the op posite House. Some were vetoed, and one of them declared unconstitutional. Any measure that may be introducted for the relief of the workingmen of the coun ty or State or for the betterment of in dustrial conditions, will receive the very best support that I can possibly give them.
