Preston said he seemed to have old-fashlorfted Ideas in regard to duty and propriety In political matters. He: said "I have, always been taught that one voting in the primaries makes a promise to support the nominees freely and fairly made, and that candidates offering them-selves for nomination, subject to the decision of their party, enter into an express contract to abide by the result. But political ethics and ideas of duty seem to change with the times. We see men taking a vigorous part in the primaries of the Democratic party and later supporting the Republican nominees, and in several cases candidates defeated in the primaries conniving at the defeat of their successful competitors. My opinion of such action may be entirely crude and out of date, but to my primitive notion this does not seem to me fair play.

This is especially true when all our nominees are worthy and capable and deserving of the support of every Democrat in the county." He urged every Democrat in the county to vote for every man on the Democratic ticket.

Because the exclusion of the ignorant and thriftless negro vote will make for better political conditions. Because it will remove race prejudice from politics, and enable the white voter to decide public questions solely on their merits.

Because it will, in some of the counties which are now afflicted with a predominating negro vote, exclude the ignorant and uneducated negro from participation in politics and put the management of local affairs and the levying of taxes in the hands of the white voters. Because in 15 of the 23 counties of Maryland the great majority of the Eepublican party is negro, ignorant and mostly illiterate, and the possible ascendancy of a party so composed in local affairs is a constant menace to good govern ment and the public peace; oysters went begging, and the effort ended Smith and Eugene Hammond, of.
