M E L V 1 N , STEELE JOHNSON, EDITORS A N D P R O P R I E T O R S . SATURDAY MORNING, JANUARY 15. YOUNG MEN TO THE FRONT. Democrats are again in Baltimore city, ami they are cou- fldcnt ot regaining the c o n t r o l of that city, \ \ h i c h i n f . i i t h a i u l beiitt m e u t is so btrougly a t t a c h e d t o the Democracy. Mr. Charles H. Poitei. one of t h e leading s p u r t s engaged in l e v i v i n g p a r t y o r g a n i z a t i o n , b.iys of the Citizens Democrat re Associa- t i o n , which was recently f o r m e d : "As s t a t e d in its c h a r t e r the association is tor the purpose of bc- e u n u g success tor tlie D o t u o e r a t i c p a r t y in Baltimore City. It i- to bo i n t u i t i v e l y n o n - t a c t i o n a l , a n d hh.ill not be s u b s e r v i e n t to the interests of any one peison ov set of persons, it.being t h e desire t h a t t h e p a r t y shall be u n i t e d for the sole purpose of a d v a n c i n g its f u t u r e w e l f a r e and success. All Baltimore Deraooiats ought to be able to u n i t e u p o n this declination of principles, as it e l i m i - nates the financial question w h i c h split the pai ty in 1896. Should that question arise at s o m e f u t o r o time it is to be hoped that the people will be in a position to settle it once Eor all. but, in the meantime, it is the h e i g h t of f o l l y for us to waste our strength by division and thus allow the Republican party to fasten it self upon our city. '"The y o u n g men who h a v o s t a i t ed this m o v e m e n t are deeply in earnest. They have been fooled and misled t i m e and a g a i n , and are h e a r t i l y lived of it. They have become accustomed to high s o u n d i n g phrases and w e l l - w r i t t e n paper constitutions w h i c h promise all things and perform n o t h i n g . T h e y o u n g m e u have boing practically doing all the necessary p o l i t i c a l work for years and they now believe it t i m e to take some l i t t l e p a i t i u t h e direction of party affairs. "Our association proposes a. perfect, practical and working organization in every precinct in the city. We are not prepared to tell our plans in detail at this t i m e . Let this suffice for the time being as simply a note to the public that the young men are about to open shop and that they will very soon be reddv for business." LET US HAVE GOOD ROADS. A NOVEL SUGGESTION. G o v e r n o r Lowndes' message to the Legislatuie has at least one suggestion t h a t is novel. He proposes, »s a remedy for lynchings, that the coiinty in w h i c h a lynching oceuis shall pay a heavy fine to the State for each and every such offense. The Governor's premise that l y n c h - ing is mnrder, pnre and simple, is undeniable; b u t the p u n i s h m e n t f£ every taxpayer in n c o u n t y fot a crime committed by a dozen or two reckless or infuriated men, w i t h o u t tho foreknowledge of any of t h e m , perhaps, would be a ridiculous attempt at justice, or l a t h e r , perversion of justice. The crime of raui- tler has now a fixed p u n i s h m e n t for actual commission a n d for aid or abstinent. One or a n o t h e r degiee ot the c r i m e should be fastened upon a man before lie is punished in auy m a n n e r for it. The G o v e r n o r ai- gues that his suggestion would lead the people to select for officers men who w o u l d use intelligent and com a- g e o u s e f f o i t s to protect their pris- oneis antl discover and prosecute those offenders against law and order. No one in this State can agree ·with the Governor in his decimation t h a t "it is difficult to understand ·what precise methods produce l j u u h - ings." There is but one crime for which lynching is resorted to, and deplore lynching as m u c h and jusily Thciu is n o t h i n g w h i c h w i l l ad- v.uico .1 c o m m u n i t y more q u i c k l y t h a n good toads-, and it is t h e r c f o i e g i a t i f j i n g t o k n o w t h a t organised e f t o i t i s to be put f o r t h in tint, direction: As soon as tho Legislature settles d o w u to business, the good roads bills of the L. A. W. \ \ i l l be presented and pushed. W h i l e the \\lieelmeu expect to have t h e meas- u r e s passed at t h i s session, t h o j a i e not a n x i o u s to h a v e t h e m put in effect u n t i l the people ot t h e State are educated n p to the p o i n t u l i e i o t h o will h c a i t i l y co-opeiate i n h a v - ing tlieui cailied o u t . N o t h i n g they t h i n k , could be m o i e d i s a s t i o u s tliau to have t h e measures passed and t h e n jidministeied lu a halt-hearted wny. Mr. C o n w a j W. Sams is p r e p a r i n g aiiollioi p a m p h l e t on the good roads bills, which will show how much is actually expended at present on the loads of Maryland, w i t h l i t t l e or no l e s u l t . He t h i n k s t h a t the o u t l y is f u l l y $400,000 per year. He will also shou. hoiv m u c h could bo accomplished by an a n n u a l outlay of tins p r o p o r t i o n , provided it were used in accordance w i t h the best knowledge at pieserrt available in road-making. The pamphlet will appear about the m i d d l e of the present session, w h e n the bills aie being considered in committee. EDITORIAL NOTE3. We b.ive received from the a u t h o r , M i . T. W. Wood, a treatise on political economy entitled "The Road to Prosperity." The a u t h o r says it \vas w n t t e u w i t h a view to a i d i n g in dealing p e r m a n e n t prosperity and the c o n t e n t m e n t of the people. In s u m m i n g u p t h o currency question he says: "This c o u n t r y needs the s u i e s t and most i n v u l n e r a b l e cur\ o n c y in the \ v o i l d to sustain our in- dnstnes at all times, aud cause no tinxiety. W i t h o u t doubt t h i s cau be best supplied by gold, silver and pn- pei, issued by the g o v e r n m e n t oi the United States. Free coinage of silver m u s t be adopted, all outstanding notes called in, aud exchanged for u n i f o r m treasury notes of suitable denominations, which should be issued to keep sufficient in circulation to provide at all times $30 per capita in m o n e j tor use in this c o u n t r y , t h e n satisfactory business conditions will be continuous." The publication in the New York Swt of a pait of the pension loll resulted in showing t h a t a pension of $72 a m o n t h is still going to Hham Miller of Poit Jervis, N.

Mr. Camoion t h i n k s the Peninsula is in bottci sh.ipe financially now t h a n it has been foi several years, in t h a t the people owe less m o n e y t h a n f o i m c r - ly, and ilie prospect for a lair business is gond. Storekeepers i c p o r t t h a t tanners have paid t h e i r bills p r e t t y generally, and the wholesale trade is m a k i n g closer collections., w h i c h b e n e f i t s .ill classes. D i n i n g t h e year ISC7 the E a s t e r n Shore c o u n t i e s of M a r y l a n d had 28 l a i l - nres w i t h liabilities of $84,800 and assets aggiegiitiug $'50,100. In 1890' the Eastern Shore bad 3j f a i l u r e s , 27 in 1893, 48 in ISQ4, 43 in 1893, and 32 in 1892. For the three years preceding 1SQ7 the liabilities and assets of the Eastern Shoie failures were as follows: 1894, liabilities $183,330, assets $111,175; 1S03, liabilities $134,900, assets $81;200; 1S9G, liabilities $426,300, assets $369,100. The citizens and taxpayers of Queen Auue's c o u n t y have been agitating the question of offering a bill in the Legislature looking to a change in the mode of collecting county aud State taxes. Taxes are now collected by local collectors appointed by the C o u n t y Commissioners in iuul for each district separately. The pioposed bill advocates the t i e a s u i e i system, which places all tax collections i u the h a n d * of a County Treasurer. This suggested system seemed to meet the a p p r o v a l of a laige class ot citizens, aud was expected to meet w i t h very l i t t l e objection. It now appeals t h a t a counter petition is being circulated opposing auy ehaugo iu the present mode. Tho treasurer system i« not popular from a p o l i t i c a l s t a n d p o i n t as it does away with six of the seven collectors in a c o u n t y of seven districts like Queen Anne's. It is likely t h a t tho Queen Anne's law will be modelled after o u r treasurer l a w .

The deadlock in the House of Delegates was broken by the election of Mr. Louis Sehaefer, of B a l t i m o r e c r t y , speaker.

Justice w i t h o u t delay iu the courts will more nearly remedy this evil than a n y t h i n g t h a t can be suggested at this time. A wholesome lesson of t h i s k i u d was recently given in Virginia, in which a m u r - derer was apprehended, tried, convicted aud sentenced to death · n i t h i n a week. Demonstrate the a d c q u a c j of the law to p u n i s h i n h u m a n cumes promptly and w i t h o u t unnecessary legal quibble, and lyuclnup will in large measure cease.

The Delaware Legislature .met in adjoin ued session, at Dover, ou Tuesday. Governor Tunnell's message w a s lead in both houses. In each house a, motion that the members be res worn according to the obligations defined by the new Consti- t u t i o n was laid ou the table. The opinion is advanced t h a t u n t i l it completes its work this Legislature is under the old C o n s t i t u t i o n . The report of the Board of Manage: s of the Maryland Hospital foi the Insane, for the year 1807, has been received. The Board recommends the purchase of additional l a u d so that the f a r m i n g operations, w h i c h were profitable last year, may be increased. They say the insti- t u t i o n is in perfect condition under the management of S u p e r i n t e n d e n t Dr. J Percy Wade. Di. Wade in his report makes a very pleasing mention of Drs. Chirk aud Deweese, as follows: "My colleague, Dr. J. Clement Clark, by his f a i t h f u l aud efficient discharge of the duties entrusted to him has been of valuable assistance to me in the management of the hospital." "Dr. Cornelius Deweese, who was a p p o i n t e d second assistant and Pathologist, has s h o w n by his previous work to be f u l l y competent to discharge the duties. His work as Pathologist is to be especially commended." The Democratic members of both houses of the General Asiembly met iu caucus Thursday aud n o m i n a t e d A r t h u r P.

Judge Henry Page was put iu n o m i n a t i o n for Senator by Delegate Riley, of Aune Aruudel, and seconded by Senator Applegarth, of Dorchester, aud Delegate Redden, of this county. A f t e r the fust vote, in which the t h r e e gentlemen named voted for Judge Page, the vote was made unanimous for Senator G o r m a n . The action of Delegate Redden in v o t i n g for an Eastern Shoreman for Senator was in strict accord w i t h tho declarations of tho platform upon w h i c h he was nominated, and his efforts w i l l be always directed toward tlie accomplishment of the declarations of that charter of his p r i n - ciples.

Handy, w h o the head the bureau of publicity tiud promotion of the "World's C o l r r m b i a n Exposition, died at Augusta, Ga., on' Saturday last. Major H.audy returned very recently from Parrs, ·whither he w e n t as the special commissioner of the United States, to the French Exposition in 1900. His father was a Marylander aud t h e son passed most of his yeais before lirs majority in Berlin, "Worcester county, where his remains wei« buried. He was connected at various times since 1872 w i t h daily papers in Richmond, Va., Philadelphia, New York and Chicago as editorial writer and managing'editor. Major Handy was a n e p h e w of Col. Wm. H. PiuneH, organizer and commander of the Purnell Legion of Maryland, and has other relatives in this State. The Philadelphia Times l a m e n t s the f:ict that tlie 8th ot the present m o n t h was passed iu the great city of P h i l a d e l p h i a this year w i t h no celebration of. "Jackson Day." The eighth of January should everywhere be a memorable a n n i v e r s a r y , for ou t h a t day General Jackson achreved at New Orleans a lasting victory for American arms. New York's big Democratic c l u b is about in proportion to the genera 1 , "tremendousncss" of that o i l y . Eighty-five thousand dollars in initiation fees and dues were paid i n t o itstreasury at one meeting this week. - TLe membership fee is $123 for resident members and $40 for uon-rosi- d«nt members. The showing of the P. W. B. R. R. C o m p a n y , for the past year, is encouraging not only to the friends of t h a t company but to those of the Queen Auue's l i n e as \\cll. The figures show that the Peninsula is becoming more and more p r o d u c t i v e every yeir, aud t h e r e will bo good business for the new line also. The Ceotreville Record advocates the b u i l d i n g of a high school for that t o w n . This will probably be clono. Such an improvement should be made in Denton. The Academy here is crowded, in spite of the fact that one of the assistant teachers has her room in another building. U p at Huilock last week, says the Cambridge News, an election was held tor postmaster at which nobody but Republicans voted. W i l l i a m H. Stevens, who was backed by the Andrews influence, won over Thomas A. Noble by ft vote of 68 to 47, but M r . Noble, we are i n f o r m e d , does not propose to abide by the result. It seems t h a t floaters, and loafers and all others who ever did, do n o w , or ever expect to get in nil at tho Hoi-lock office, were permitted to vote, oven parties f r o m Wicomico taking pait in the contest. H o w over this may be, it sliowb to the county tliat Joseph B. Andrews and his f r i e n d s i n t e n d to l u n Hurlock district, and that they are a b u n d a n t - ly able to do so w i l l hardly be questioned in the f u t u r e .

HALF-YEAR CARPET CLEARANCE . Been doing likewise for years. I housands know it, and wait. As business grows, we have to icnsider longer and longer pieces as "remnants." We count odd rolls as remnants, too, and are willing to lose as heavily on the back-row lots that failed of selling maybe just from lack of showing. Allin all, today's offering amounts to 30,230 Yards of Fine Carpets And, as a rule, shorter the length shorter the price. For instance, 82.50 Wiltons at 81.25, SI.50, $1.75 --we lose as little as we need, but all losses are for your finding. Bring measurements of several rooms--good re-furnishing comes from "changing around." We say "bring," for come you will, if there is carpet want to meet. Why, it's worth a day's journey.
