MELVIN, STEELE 4. JOHNSON. 'EDITORS AND PROPRIETORS. SATURDAY MORNING, JANUARY 22. IMPORTANCE OF GOOD ROADS. In view of the fact, a d m i t t e d , wo believe", by most people, t h a t there is much footu for i i n p i o v e m c n t in the oldjTJinie system of road-making and rc-ad-repairing -- a system w h i c h years have show.u to be very expen- sve Aiui, in , very many caseb, un- satisfac/oryv-Vould it not be well to consider-, some changes in tbat sys- tein/lfefore the next season's work is awarded? Now is the t i m e to secure legislation, if any should be ueeded. We have heretofore expressed the opinion, "shared by so m a n y , t h a t the management and i n s p e c t i o n of this wgrk shoiild be given to a rc- spODiible B)»D. who has special fitness for it'"»njj has shown bis ability and desire to^make. good roads out of ilia uorsf jam's. In t h i s way the taxpayers would most surely receive the ·ffpftirof-'their money, for good roads are indispensaMo in ereiy progressive'.' C o m m u n i t y ; w i t h o u t them the ^tendency is inevitably 1 downward,. ,.No agricultural county Hko ours c:in' ever gain the recognition it 'dese^.*,e:v'Or its real worth ever^be mktle- known and realized, \vl)i!o"its tWoronghfare are little better tha'n quag'raires or beast-killing sand banks. There has been some progress iri^th'S' import ant matter of improving Ihejroads, in their worst places, in thj. past few years, and the public ha's been quick to acknowledge the benefits received, and ask for' more. The people will bo as prompt to see and approve of steps looking toward still-- better things. That the whole country is interested in the good, roads m o v e m e n t is evidenced, by the bills before Congress and the many .State legislatures on the subject. - A good deal may be done in the levy court room with the same end in view. Even without additional legislative a u t h o r i t y Ihe county commissioners might make some radical and urgently needed changes. They might begin by appointing as general oversnerland inspector, such a capable man as Mr. J o n a t h a n Evitts,. of Denton. In many places along the highways hereabout there are proofs positive of his superior skill. .IFALLWERE ADVANCED ALIKE. Mr. T. W. Wood, in his pamphlet entitled "The Road,to Prosperity," has the following to sustain the assertion t h a t - g o l d standard people rejoice that a great American industry is depressed: "A good many gold standard newspapers and persons have seemed to rejoice that silver has declined and-ttftt,wheat has ad.. r ,^ ^w.«*|ffTOMRQS· -seed---Ara such papers and persons 'wise and consistent? Silver mining'is a great American industry, in which hundreds of thousands of people are employed in its various ramifications; should it not then be the duty of true patriots to aid in advancing'the interests of this country, one of which is silver mining? ·Growing wheat is another great in- ^Jterest/and we are right in rejoicing r'j-'a't its advance in price, as it is justly looked upon as one of the great levers that is to aid in the cause of prosperity, and if one product cau do. such- an amount of good, how much' good would be done if all the products were advanced in pi ice? To use a. common expre'ssiou, would ·we not then be in clover? These increased prices would require more money in circulation, and wheu we get it, prices will advance whether foreign harvests fail or not. and the millions of^ suffering peisous- will then be able to get enough to eat and.wear through obtaining p l e n l y of employment at good wages." ^a.EG'OMIV^DS AN EXAMINER. Comptroller Robert P. Graham in his annuAlrejjort'for'the fiscal -year ended September 30th, of last year, recommends the appointment of an Examining Auditor. Th'e Comptroller is lead to this' recommendation .'· by an examination of various Clerks' offices in fhe-Stute, many of w h i c h , be said,' "we're found to be models of. accuracy' ancT neatness, with well deviled systems" of keeping'public accounts, but this,.;ould t not be said of till.?'

Wilson, of Balt i m o r e county, has iu piepiiration a bill designed to changu the existing I-iw lelativo to the powers of school trustees in Baltimore c o u n t y , and if possible, to make the change applicable t h r o u g h o u t tho State. It is proposed to deprive ttio trustees of the power to a p p o i n t leacliers, and to place this power iu the hands of the School Boards of the sevcial counties. Ma.ny cases have arisen in which the trustees have displayed iv hostility* to teachers which interfered with the proper conduct of tho schools. It is proposed t h a t they shall have charge only of school property. Mr. Wilsou for several years \\as president oC tho School Board of Baltimore c o u n t y . The C o m m a n d e r in Chief of the G. A. K. is heartily in favor of publishing theentirelistof United Stales, pensioners, thus enabling the people of the country to bee for themselves the character of tho men who are drawing- pensions as disabled soldiers. No doubt, many dread the p u b l i c a t i o n of this list, as in every c o u n t y of the Union theic are men who, if they Jiad dealt fairly with t b o Union they helped to save,would not now -be drawing 1 pensions for disability, when they are doing a f i i l l d a j ' s \\ork whenever they are able to secure a job. At auy rate, let the light bo turned on, aud let the people see who are drawing their money.--Frederick Citizen, The Finance Committee of the United States Senate has adopted a resolution declaring United States bonds payable in standard silver dollars. The five Republican members of the committee voted against the resolution, and the six Democratic members and Messrs. Walcott aud Jones, silver Republicans, voted for it. "While it is possible that the resolution might be passed by the Senate, it is reasonably certain that the House of Representatives will not agree to it. It will luive t h e effect, however, of putting all Ihe members on record, and the uext House of Representatives mixyithere- by be made of different political complexion. If present conditions prevail a few yeais longer the cotton mills of the South will force those of the North out of business. Those of New England have recently reduced wages over eleven per cent., and they are, naturally, having trouble with their employees. The four million spic- dles of tbe South are cheerfully h u m m i n g , and the product is equal, if not superior, to that : of the rival mills iu Massachusetts and else- :c::°.' The scale of wages is about forty per cent, lower, and the hours of work longer, down South, and those are the great advantages by which the Southern manufacturer'is forcing his competitor to the wall. The fte of the meddler ia a family fight, it is said, is to be belabored by both contestants. The Democratic members of the General As- sevnbly should ponder well the result before they take a hand in the Republican, fight for Ihe ~ United States Senatorship. A temporary gratification at the discomfiture of a most obnoxious part of the Republican party might result to the Dero- ocuits by interference iu'a fight not theirs, but no political point of vantage will be gained. Don't dicker, Democrats- You will fiad it uu- piofitablo aud thankless business. The people of Talbot county, particularly in Easton, are in a t u m u l t of excitement over the question of high license to supersede the local- option law now in force there. The petition for high license has been forwarded to Annapolis, - and the counter petitions, which have been freely circulated, will bo forwarded in a short time. It is said a delegation including prominent professional and business men of Easton, will go to Annapolis to protest in person against the passage of a high license Tho House Committee on Banking and Currency gaVe unlimited time to ex-Secretary Fail-child to express his views on currency reform and to suggest arnendraenfs to the bills now bcfore j the'committee. It was not convenient, however, lor the committee to hear Hon. Charles Towne and General Warner of the American Bimetallic Union, on tho same subject. It makes a vast diffeience, it semus, on which side the speakers are to talk. No suggestions are accepted from t h a silver advocates. A dispatch from. C e u t r e v i l l e , lo one of the Baltimore papers says: "Many citizens from different districts of the county were in Centre villo Taesday. Tho question oF^a successor to Delegate Wright was freely discussed, and the u n a n i m o u s opinion .of all was t h a t an election was useless at this time, saddling°a heavy expense on the taxpayers which there is no necessity for." State's Attorney Duffy, of Baltimore, went to Annapolis on Thursday loaded with bills for passage by the Legislature. There were no less t h a n thirteen of t h e m , and they covered a wide range of subjects. The "Oyster Navy" is, not self- supporting under Republican management, and retiring Comptroller Graham suggests to the Legislature an appropriation of $10,000 per year for 1808 and 180U, A Kentucky a g r i i - u l t u r i s t Ts authority for the s t a t e m e n t that m u c h good use may bo made of cornstalks. The pith, he says, can l« converted into cellulose, which has a market value of $400 per ton. War vessels are liued with it, and whenever a vessel so lined is p u u c t u t e d with shot, the contact of the water w i t h the cellulose causes it to swell, closing the iipertuio and preventing the water from entering betwoen the i n n e r and outer walls of the ship. Tho railroads have f o u n d cellulose to be superior to cottou waste for packing journals, as it requires less oil and obviates hot boxes. As a covering for steam pipes it is tho best known substance. For m a k i n g paper it is found to bo superior to wood pulp, and from it kodak films, frescoes and all papier mac he articles cau bo made. This does not begin to exhaust its marvelous possibilities, aud its general use will make the cornstalk a valuable instead of a comparatively worthless product. According to Mr. John Field, one of Philadelphia's great merchants, the average man is honest. As Mr. Field has had wide experience in the mercantile business his views are entitled to consideration; and it is pleasant to accept them, optimistic though some may think thorn. Mr. Field says dishonesty is tlie exception. "We are startled at times by the betrayal of trust, but it is well to consider the vast n u m - bers of meu and women who hold positions of trust and responsibility who never go astray; millions and m i l l i o n s passing through their hands aud never a penny ruisbinif. The average amount of frauds perpetrated to the average amount of busi- css traasacnted is really infinites'! rual." The Philadelphia Ledger reminds the Senators now -working up the annexation scheme that with Hawaii, two thousand miles away as a part of our territory, our navy will Jiave to be largely increased to take care of it. In the Supreme Court of tho U u i - ted States an opinion has been handed down on tho question of whether a sano suicide's heirs cau collect the insurance on his life. The court decides that they cannot. Petitions are iu circulation to ask the legislature to pass a law to restrict the sale of drugs so that nr£G but experienced drugg'cts may sell them. Where Is the Trouble? To the Editors of the JOURNAL: Permit a depositor to inquire, through your valuable columns, what is the trouble among the directors of the Denton National Bank? By the published statement of tbo ipsult of the annual election oE officers and directors of said bank for the current year, much to my surprise, and, in fact, to the surprise of tho entire community, it is stated that Mr. B. G. Stevens has been superseded as president. Now, it seems that this action was taken without.-one word of complaint against the official capacity or integrity of Mr. Stevens, who, as t h e official head of tbe institution, leaves it in a highly prosperous and satisfactory condition, as tho last statement of the bank will substantiate. When Mr. Stevens was inducted into tho presiding officer's chair in June, 1895, there was, as is shown by the bank report, a surplus of $20,000 in the bank, and the dividends among the stockholders at that time was six per cent., whereas the last statement shows that there was a surplus of $30,000 aud dividends at eight per cent. These figures clearly show that the bank, wheu Mr. Stevens was depos : od, was in a most prosperous condition, and to tho stockholders a paying i n v e s t m e n t ; therefoie, tho people interested in and doing 1 business with the bank are at a loss to understand this unprecedented action, 'if there were any charges'of dereliction of duty, iucompetency or unfaithfulness upon the part of the president, it was the dirty of those cognizant of such facts to have preferred the charges and bad them investigated. , In the absence of such action, what is the natural inference ? Simply that no such charges-could be brought.' Now, the only i n c e n t i v e to this action that I can conceive ma'y be traced to political animosity upon the part of one or two members of the board, which actuated them, like veteran political wire-pullers, to cuter upon a regular campaign against Mr. Stevens because oE his individual political views, aud this inference is borne out by the. action of these gentlemen d u r i n g last fall's campaign. Now, Messrs. Editors, if politics is to .become.a governing factor in our banking, institutions, I thiuk tho soouer they are closed tho better, for it is an incontrovertible fact that as soon as a banking i n s t i t u t i o n enters tlie political arena iU g IMG nil usefulness is destroyed. When wo allow politics to become a controlling influence in the banking system of our country tliRn we may bid farewell to our entire financial sy'stem. In conclusion, I would simply add t h a t the recent action of tho boaid of directors of the Doutou National * Bank has created a feelmg a n y t h i n g but favorable to tbat institution t h r o u g h o u t the eutire community, where tho teeling and prejudice influencing that action is thoroughly understood, and the sentiment thus created will not redound to the interest? of the bank. DEPOSITOR Koiiu'il} for lion: duller i. A cure for hog cholera has been found and t h e t'armeis who lost hogs last year will be glad to know it. The chief of the bureau of animal industry, Dr. D. E. Salmon, has submitted to Secretary Wilson a report upon e x p e i i m e u t s in the treatment of hogs for hog cholera w i t h inti-to.\iue s e r u m . This serum is made upon the same p r i n c i p l e as the anti-toxiitc of diptheria. It was fust tested upon small a n i m a l s in the laboratory a n d , beiug f o u n d efficacious, was last fall tested in Page c o u n t y , Iowa, on several herds of swine, containing altogether 27£ animals. L e a v i n g out one herd, from which definite r e t u r n s as to cause of death could not be obtained, only 39 died o u t of 244 auirnai? treated, of w h i c h 8G wcresick. Consequently 82.8 per cent, of t h e animal in these herds were saved. Of untreated herds kept under observation d u r i n g the period referred to about So per cout. of I h e animals died. Dr. Salmon believes that, with experience, a better quality of serum cau be prepared, and ho has no doubt thai t h i s percentageciiu bo maintained hereafter. Referring to ( h i s report, Secretary Wilson said the cost of the serum now is but 1C cents per head of animals treated, only one dose being required, and doubtless in course of time this light cost may be still f u r t h e r reduced.

The Maryland Fish Commissioners report that while the terrapin is beoo'ming scarce and expensive, the shad supply has increased twenty- fold u n d e r thoir .administration. Since they a'.lmit that in Maryland waters alone does the terrapin reach perfection, this is a confession of incapacity on tho part of the commissioners. We can raise shad enough up North to supply the world, and the Maryland authorities would better t u r n t h e i r attention to increasing the supply of theirspeeial- ty. The terrapin must not be suf ferecl to become extinct. 1st, Boston give up its beans and Pniladel- phia forget her scrapple. They cau be rediscovered. But if terrapin should disappear, it could no more b~e recovered t h a n ' t h e Toledo blade. Tho eyos of the world are on the M a r y l a n d commissioners. If they suffer the terrapin to follow the fate of the bison, they will be forsworn. --JV. T. Advertiser. Secretary C: W. Van Der Hoogt, of the State Bureau of Immigration,) received a letter yesterday from a clothing merchant at Austin, Minn., stating that a n u m b e r of Scandinavians' who have settled there are ready to come to Maryland if there is hope of bettering their condition. The merchant indicated t h a t if he can get reduced railroad rates he will come to Maryland to look over the Eastern Shore colonies. Mr. Van Der Hoogt replied at once, giving the m e r c h a n t information in detail as to tho advantages in Maryland for immigrants. Mr. Van Der Hoogt also received a letter from one of the i m m i g r a n t s who recently located at Wcstover, Somerset county, stating that ho has purchased a farm there, is very much pleased with that section of ,t"nc Slate, and will give all tho assistance he cau to the bureau.--Baltimore American.

AThoughtf u! Woman Says "It is certainly sensible to buy muslin and cambric undergarments in mid-winter, because muslin is warmest after the first two or three washings. I try to buy enough during your cheap sales to last me a year. A month's wear now makes the garments the more comfortable for summer wear." That advice is too good to keep. This whole underwear business is based on adapting and c a r r y i n g out the sensible ideas that are given to our salespeople by you. That is why the underwear sold here is different from "sale underwear" in other stores. Just like home-made, except that we have experts to study daintiness and thus bring you variety.
