MELVIN, STEEL.E 4. JOHNSON, EDITORS AND PROPRIETORS. SATURDAY MORNING, JANUARY 1. EDITORIAL NOTES. Maryland Senatorial situntion as clear as mud- The leaders in rho fight, each claiming 1 about t h e s;ime n u m b e r of votes to go i n t o co-nuns with, are Governor Lowndos, 'Tadgc Louis McComas and JVIajor er Shaw. The friends of each of these gentlemen are daim- ing a victory for their favorite as Jjie outcome of the contest in caucus. TNe general impression seems to bo, how^.yer, that Governor Lowudes is in the lead and that lie has his forces better in hand than any of the other candidates. Several gentlemen are watching the fight with the intention, it is said, of going in for t h e pviie at t'lie opportune m o m e n t -- w h e n tlie lines have been drawn to their utmost tension, and the contending elements have become embittered beyond reconciliation. It remains to be seen whether or not such a contingency will arise. The speculation as to who will be the legatees of the several aspirants' votes is interesting. Caroline peo-" Â· pie fondly hope that Judge Russmn " will fail heir to a winning 1 portion of Educators are considering tbe ^reposition recently made to ask the Legislature to appropriate money to establish a public library in each ^cojinty in the state. It is suggested that to each county the sum of $100 be given as a nucleus, if the com- missionors iu each case will supple- m e n t the fund, and thus enable the school authorities to provide the needful books and n place for their .safcvjieeping. It is not thought, Â·_A\veve7r~tu7it~ttrrr-project *viJl_be Â·widely eudorsed, for tbe benefits of such a library conld not be general. Those living remote from it would ' _ b e c u t o f f i almost entirely from its 'Â· use. The feasibility of the school library, however, which has become . a popular institution, especially iu Caroline county, hasbeeu demonstrated and should be promoted.

THE GOVERNMENT. From iltc New York Situ. The one great argument of the opponents of the G o v e r n m e n t ' s p.-ipcr c u i r e n c y is, t h a t the: issue of demand notes to serve as money is blinking. Consequently, the cry is: "The Government must go out of t h e banking business!" The fact is disregarded that in tho older civilized countries, no banks, other than a few t h a t are Government agencies, are pei milted to issue circulating notes, and t h a t their issue is not an essential part of the 'business ot banking. The usurpation, by our American banks, oi' the Government f u n c t i o n of supplying the people with a circulating medium has been permitted for so many" years, that it h;is, in the eyes of bank officers, become not only a vested privilege but a vested niouop- oly. At the same time, the champions of the banks against the Government completely overlook a case of the performance, by the Govern- m e n t , of real banking f u n c t i o n s on a colossal scale. The batiks in this city complain of interference with their privileges by the trust companies, and, at various bank conventions tho competition of express companies and telegraph companies iu making remit!unces of money from ono point to another has been denounced as u n f a i r , but against the enormous transactions of the Post Office in selling, in the form of money orders, what are equivalent to bank checks and drafts, not a word has yet been uttered. The Money Order Department of the Post Office handles, in the course of a year, $400,000,000, and in so doing it issues aud redeems 33,000,000 pieces of paper. Not only does it t r a n s m i t money for the purchase of goods, the payment of debts and the making of gifts, but travellers resort to its agency to provide themselves with f u n d s at the various sjjigesjsf their journeys, in preference to using \afnlnh'nlisivwi letters, of credit. Great as the volume of the business is, it is still growing, and Postmaster-General Gary proposes to double it the coming year, by a d d i n g a thousand a month to the mouey-order offices already iu operation. , If the Government is to ge out of the banking business it must begin by abolishing the Post Office Money Order Department. Then, on the same principle, it should go out of tho express business and cease to carry merchandise in the mails- Nest, it should stop coining metal, running: its own printing office, and doing its own engraving aud printing. Finally, it should cease maintaining its navy yards, docks, and all other national establishments, the operatious of which interfere THE HOLLANDERS ARE NOT GOING. Several wneks ago in the local correspondence of the JOURNAL, from Tatiyard, appeared this item: "Several Hollanders are leaving for different parts of the country. Some of them arc going to North Carolina, others to Talbot county and the Western Shore." Secretary Cornelius W. Van dcv Hooiit, of the Maryland Bureau of I m m i g r a t i o n , says this is not correct, and under date of December 24th, writes to t h e Easton J^etlffci-, concerning said item, as it also appeared in that paper, as follows: 'Â·"Allow me to state that this notice is partly incorrect. It is true that some families have moved to the Western Shore, aud others have rented farms Â· iu Talbot county for the coming year, but the large majority, of whom several have already bought laud, still remain aud seem to be satisfied, aud from the Hollanders not one has left the State. "Probably you mount Mr. Nagel, who moved with his f a m i l y to North Carolina, but these are Germans, and a few days ago I received a letter from him, telling me that he was disappoiuted with his new surroundings tiud decided to come back. He requested me to ask the owner of the farm he formerly occupied to renew the contract for the next year, but it is already rented to a Holland family. As far as our experience goes, it is a fact that even this German family is the only family who moved into another State since the creation of the Bureau of Immigration. "I am also pleased to say tbat the Holland Colony has proved to be a success, and the people seem satisfied and all houses are occupied. Contracts have just been made to build a new -wharf, aud also the Main street with a bridge over the creek leading to Â· the new station, 'Wilhehnina. 1 There is to be built in the spring, a store, church, can- _niu_g factory and ten houses for new families, who w"ill~johi- lk othfirs_. "I trust you will kindly revise the article in your next issue." DECEMBER MARRIAGE LICENSES. Tbe General Assembly of the State of Maryland will meet in the old - State House at Annapolis, nest "Wednesday,- and organize for the biennial sessiou of ninety days. " The Republicans will be iu full con- trol in both houses, and be backed by a Republican Chief Executive; therefore the record made will be exclusively the property of the Republican party of the State. " That party will, of course, at this session endeavor to make a record upon , which they can claim.from the peo- .pie, in fu'ure campaigns, a contiu- uauce in power. Let us wnit aud see w h a t they do do. Saturday was au idea) Christmas Â· Daj r . In many places all public business was suspended, the stores closed, and the pleasant hours given up to social visits, entertaiuing and- feastiug. There were services in a number of the churches, and thns, most appropriately, was celebrated the great event which is f r a u g h t ' w i t h such deep meaning'to raau- -kiud. There was, indeed, little to uiar the happiness of the a n n i v e r - sary, except the thought that there with the profits of p r i v a t e enterprise. It is time t h a t the talk about the Government's going out of the "banking business" should cud. . It is illogical aud absurd. THE FIRE MARSHAL'S REPORT. The report of the State Pire Marshal shows that the total number of fires oecuring throughout tho State during the seventeen m o n t h s prior to September 30th last was 2,404, of which only 19 occurred in Caroline county. Of this number, 12 were dwellings, 5 barns and stables, aud 2 stores in dwellings. Two deaths have resulted from fires in this county during the period covered by the report, and they were the two children of Fannie Johnson, who were burned to death near Preston ou the e v e n i n g of December 26, 1S9U. The cause of this flre, which took place during the temporary absence of the mother, and while the children were locked in the house, is given iu the report as u n k n o w n . The loss caused.by fires in the State during this t i m e was $1,192,514.50. .The uninsured loss vras $224,563.45, this being an absolute fire-waste aud an actual loss of taxable basis for tho State. Eighty-one per ceut. of this was iu the counties, where 782 fires caused a total loss of $647,717.99, the uninsured loss beiug $180,650.50. Thirty-sis persons have died by fire d u r i n g the seventeen mouths, aud the great majority of these, the Marshal says, have been due to the weitfso many, who failed to fairly explosions of gasoline stoves. "It appreciate its f u l l significance. A New York paper offered a prize of $50 for the best definition of a mugwump. Thousands responded and their responses were interesting Â· reading; figuratively speaking, tho singnlar species was shown up "in all the languages." Mr. Harrison W. Vickers, of Chestertown, got the prize, the following being his definition: "A m u g w u m p is like a ferry boat, weariug itself out going from one side to tbo other." We t h i u k the mugwump is the same fellow who used to be k u o w n as the "Snol- lygoster." s\: According to the latest slate Governor Lowudes is to be Senator. The Governor* has outstripped all his competitors in the race, thus .far. "This program will, 1 of course, make Senator John Wirt Randall, of Anne Arundel, who will be president of the Senate, Governor of the State. .One of the sensations of last week ^ was the failure of Mr. "William M. Siugerly. proprietor of the Phila"'del ph ia Record, president of a bank aud several mouied institutions. It ,,is not tlionght that Mr. Siugerly's (creditors will lose anything.' V- . -- - Â· .The. Westminster Advocate says es- ' Judge George M. Rnssum, of Caro- Â·'.line, is the' best equipped of all who been^mentioned for the United seems impossible," says the report, "to reach _a corrective of this evil through legislation, but uo oppor- t u n i t y should be ueglected for impressing upou citizeus the necessity for the selection of safe stoves, if gasoline stoves must bo used, aud the necessity of ordinary caution Jiu tho handling of the oil. A large percentage of the deaths uotcd were the result of carelessness." Thirty- two persons have been arrested, charged with incendiarism, concerning which the report says.- "If the power of the Fire Marshal were increased, and if he were permitted to have Â«i sufficient force at his command to investigate thoroughly aud promptly every fire that occurs within the State, a task now a physical impossibility, t,ho u u m b e r might still further be reduced, and the crime of incendiarism might become a rarity." Persons who are troubled, with indigestion will be interested in the experience of Wm. H. Peuu, chief clerk iu the railway mail service at Des Moiues, Iowa, who writes: "It gives me pleasure to testify to tlie meritsofCbambcrlaiu'sColic Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. For two years I have suffered from indigestion, and am subject to frequent severe attacks of pain iu tho stomach and bowels. Oue or two doses of this remedy never fails to give perfect relief.

School Children's A general professional indorse- ment is being accorded views expressed by Professor Allport, of the University of Minnesota, on some of the means at present required, to protect the eyesight of children. He asserts that primarily in the .structure of a school building as few obstacles to vision as may be should be permitted; ample illumination, whether natural or artificial, should he had from the left side of the desks; the desks themselves should be of such sizes as to permit the pupils' feet to rest firnlly ou the Hoor; they should also be provided with comfortable backs aud slightly slanting tops, the latter placed at such distances from the eyes as to render sight easy without the close approximation of books; the blackboards, maps, etc., should be so .situated as to be readily seen: an erect style of h a n d w r i t i n g , I.-P; irksome to the fyo, t h a n slanting characters, should be taught, and frequent changes of study or intervals of intermission should be secured, so as to avoid c o n t i n u o u s work of one kind. Finally, school principals should be trained in the detection of eye disorders aud in a systetu^of notification to parents of discovered defects requiring attention - f r o m competent authority.

A dispatch from Centreville Monday tells of the death of "Dr." Allen, the big, pompous colored f o r tune teller, who was a conspicuous wituess at the trial of Tom Bowu. He went into the office at the"jail and requested to be nllowed'to warm himself, and as he had been in the habit of doing chores about the premises, his request was granted. In n few minutes after lying on the floor it was noticed that he was ill and Dr. Troy was summoned, but uo relief could be given, and he soon died. Justice Bryan snmmonecT a jury of inquest and a verdict iu accordance with above facts was rendered. Alice, or "Doctor" Allen, as he was generally called, was a "hoodoo" doctor, aud previous to the murder of Samuel Rash had lived in tho upper part of the county, where he had quite a potent influence among those of his own color, as well as some whites, from the belief that lie possessed the power of charming away disease and ill- luck, as well as the ability to "hoodoo" those who were his enemies. Shortly after the murder of Rash he was placed iu jail aud detained as au important wituess for the State. His testimony, however, jvas-flnly Jtrrd after the trial ^rowu, who was accused 9i Allen was released, at time has lived in Centrevillo. It was alleged that some time previous to the murder of Rash a man had consulted Allen Â·Â·is to the best way in w h i c h to dispose oL' a mortal enemy, and t h a t the l a t t e r recommended t h a t a picture of the enemy be uailc'l to a tree and riddled w i t h shot, and t h a t tho death of the person so treated would result, and in pursuance of this advice the man had practiced target-shooting at a picture of Rash. IVoftliilriu Slr:nvl)0ro (iroivlug. Mr. Walter Tuber, an experienced New York grower, recently delivered au interesting lecture on the growing and m a r k e t i n g of strawberries. Following is an extract : I plow my strawberry ground as soon as dry enough to work and harrow, using roller or planker to compact and fine the surface, to prevent evaporation. Repeat the work if not ready to set the plauts aud the surface becomes dry. I aim to have a good crop of clover to plow under to f u r n i s h moisture and nitrogen, aud spread a mixture of potash aud phoshoric acid in the proportion of one of potash to two of bone, at the rate of 800 to 1,000 pounds per acre along the rows. ~I do this with a machine t h a t sows two rows at a time in strips two feet wide, leaving two feet between tho rows unfertilized, the rows when set being four feet apart. If the ground has been properly prepared, it will be about as smooth as a board floor. I have found uo way of setting strawberry p l a u t s as satisfactory us with the line and garden trowel. In the cultivation of the strawberry I use tho twelve tooth cultivator and the Breed's weeder, working the ground shallow aud often. I grow them on tho matted row system, and cannot report such large yields as same do in the papers. I can show the record iu 1893 of four aud a half acres giving returns of $2,378 for berries sold, besides what the family consumed, an average of over $530 per acre. The Queeu Anne's Railroad is nearly completed lo the town of Lewes, the southern terminus of the road.
