the show one of that class which comes
very close to the people. This season
will be a busy one, and many high-class
attractions are billed. It is the intention
of the management to produce the very
highest class of Vaudeville, and dramatic
shows on the road. To do this citizens
of this vicinity should show their appre.
ciation by a liberal patronage, and we are
confident that Messrs. Hitchins and Por
ter will leave nothing undone to give
their patrons as good attractions in Frost
burg as they can witness in Cumberland.

i Flying fish are very voracious. In
' their turn they are preyed upon by
, barracudas, sharks, dolphins, billfish,
redfish and a hundred and one others.
Nature has colored the flying fish pro
tectively. The back is a deep blue,
merging into the blue of the seas they
frequent, so that they are invisible a
, few feet below the surface, while the
j underneath is a dazzling white, and to
t a fish that looks upward must merge
into the light falling on the sea. In ad
’ dition they possess the unique power
’ of flight. Flying fish are about seven
• inches long, and the spread of wings
- is about equal to their length. The
1 “wing” is of thin, gauzy substance,
f having stiffening sinews, like the fiber
of a leaf, to strengthen it.

The Authorities Were Rigrht

various games of chance in connection
with their circus. But to the everlasting
credit of our officers be it said the propo
-1 sition was turned down with a positive
“ No.”. This was as it should be, and
the authorities deserve the applause of the
. people of this vicinity for so doing, and
, show that they are trying at least to do
r their duty.

behalf of a candidate from George’s
Creek. Mr. William Atkinson, ofLona
coning, who aspires* to this position is
> entitled to the best consideration of the
Republican voters of Allegany County.
. Mr. Atkinson is one of the most progres
sive citizens in this section apd is free
from all factional alliances. His business
training and experience equip him for
the position of County Treasurer and
' his qualifications are second tonone anv
where. Ido not reflect upon the ability
of either of his opponents when I say
that Mr. Atkinson is their equal in many
respects and has probably greater claims
upon his pirty at this time. He is a
gentleman of the highest integrity and
standing, and if nominated will bring
to the office a ripe experience and ma
ture good judgment in the performance
of his official duties. He is connected
with no political or financial combina
tions or institutions and will not be con
trolled by any power behind the throne.
Mr. Atkinson will make a most accept
able candidate, and if nominated will
surely be the recipient of the support of
all Republicans as well as hundreds of
independent voters. Taxpayer.
George S. Philips for Surveyor
Under the head “ political announce
ments,” you will find that of Geo. S.
Philips, of Frostburg. It is useless for us
to say anything regarding this candidate.
He has already been tried and not found
wanting. Mr. Philips has served as deputy
surveyor and during the past two years
has held the position of county surveyor,
which he lias filled to the satisfaction of
the people. Mr. Philips desires the sup
port of all Republicans at the coming
primaries for renomination. We do not
know of anyone who can fill this position
any better than this gentleman. It has
been stated in some quarters that Mr.
Philips is not a candidate, but this is not
true, hence this notice.
Call Issued By Chairman JLitlle To Nomin-
County Ticket —His Address
The nominating conventi >n of the
Prohibition Party of Allegany County is
heieby called to meet at Miller’s Hall,
Cumb‘rland, Md., Thursday, September
7th, 1905, at, 2 o’clock 'p. m , to nomi
nate a full county ticket, elect delegates
and alternates to the State Prohibition
Convention to meet in BAtimore, O d

iff, State Senator, five members for the

The attention of the Prohibitionists of
the State is directed to Allegany County
for several reasons. This is now the
banner Prohibition County in the State,
and our State Chairman, who is also a
member of the National Executive Com
mittee, lives in this county. He will
tour the Eastern part of the State in the
interest of our cause, from Aug. 14,h to
the 26th inclusive.
We should hold the best political'con
vention ever held by our party in Alle
gany county, nominate a ticket in which
the people will have full confidence, and
then get to work to see that at least a
part of it is elected. The people are
expecting much of us this year. There
is political u ' rest on every hand. Party
fealty was never- held so lightly, the in
dependent vote was never so large, the
liquor traffic never so hurtful to the in
terests of the county and the sentiment
against the saloon never so strong.
These conditions invite our activity.
We have protected our organization in
the districts and precincts until we can
come together with unity and force, and
we trust you will permit nothing to de
tain you from the Convention. What at
titude do you think our party should
take on the Suffrage Amendment? A
large percentage of criminal cases in our
courts are against members of the colored
race. The crimes with which the ne
groes are so frequently charged are com
mitted almost invariably through ex
cessive use of intoxicating liquors. This
is true in almost every instance with
reference to criminal charges against
whites as well. What is the remedy?
Come and give us your yiews?

duty of the hour. Make a note cf the

How a Resident of Westernport, It U
Alleged, Was Swindled by Sharpers.
> r John Elias, an Armenian resident of
Westernport, this county appeared be
_ fore Magistrate John Chambers, of Frost
burg, Monday and through Attorney C.
G. Watson, made complaint against the
VanAmburg Show Company, charging
e them with taking the sum of SIOO from
him at Westernport, on Saturday. His
y story is, that among. the attractions he
a found a sweat-board in operation. He
8 and others played until he had spent $lO5
- and at the last turn of the wheel was told
8 lie and another man. standing by had won
e $250 each. The other man, who proved
'• to be one of the show agents was paid his
" money in cash, while Elias was informed
e that his paddle called for the payment of
8 SIOO before he could draw his prize.
r Not having the sum he went out to get-the
J money, which he borrowed from a fellow
- countryman. He went hack into the
1 tent with a check but was told that no
• checks would be taken, he went to the
1 hank and cashed the check came back
3 with the SIOO. which he threw down, de
-1 mantling his prize of $250. A row was
l started and the man operating the wheel
! grabbed up the SIOO and several others
grabbed Mr. Elias and shoved him out of
tent. After telling the story an attach
‘ ment was issued against the show people
• and Owen England, constable, was direct*
■ ed to serve the writ and take possession of
two white horses. Mr. Moore, one of the
showmen, appeared and moved to squash
, the attachment, alleging that they did not
: owe the money, nor did they run any
' gaming devices in connection with the
show. By agreement, argument on mo
tion was heard at seven o’clock before
Magistrate Chambers. According to the
evidence and for insufficient reason given
by Mr. Moore, the court over ruled the
motion. The attachment then stood re
turnable on September 18. Later, one of
the show agents appeared with a Frost
burg citizen as bondsman and filed a bond
for the amount of the suit and costs of
same until September 18, when the trial
comes up. The filing of this bond dis
solved the attachment and the show peo
ple were allowed to take their horses.
The case was watched with great interest
on account of the many little intricate
turns in the evidence and reasons alleged.
