iNAL, MELVIN, STEELE JOHNSON. EDITORS AND PROPRIETORS. SVTURDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 19. REPUBLICAN EXTRAVAGANCE- Republican extravagance w i t h the people's money cannot be more clearly set forth than by tho a p p i o - piiations of Congress w h e n the Democrats and when the Republicans were in control respectively, during llie past two decades. In t h a t time sis changes were made f r o m one party to the other, to wit, from Republican control in 187C to Democratic control in 1877; f r o m Demo- v ratie to Republican in 1SS3; from Republican to D e m o c r a t i c iu ISSo; from D e m o c r a f i c to R e p u b l i c a n in ISSO; f r o m R e p u b l i c a n to D e m o c r a t i c iu 1S91; aud from Democratic to Republican in 1895. These changes ' give ample o p p o r t u n i t y to study the tendency of each party in control of n a t i o n a l affairs, a n d t h e y show t h a t the Democrats have a l w a y s taken a stand for economy in public e x p e n - ditures. Iu the second session ot the 43d Congress, Republican, the appropriations were $328,128,199.32. ' Tbe first session of t h e 4 4 t h Congress, Democratic, the appropriations were reduced to $299,591,138.07, a saving of twenty-seven millions of dollar.;. ' The second session of the -iliih Congress, Democratic, appropriated $365,965,479.83 for the expenses of the year. The Republicans in c o n - trol the following year, the first session of the 47th Congress, increased the a m o u n t to.$422,137,983.31, au increase of fifty-six millions of dollar*. In the second session of the 47th Congress the Republicans lowered tin; appropriations to $354,297,875.23, , and the Democrats the nest year, ''1885, the first' session of the 4SUi Congress, did still better in the matter of reducing expenses, bringing t h e a m o u n t . d o w n to $318,829,489.13, over a hundred millions of loll.-irs less than the first session and t h i r t y sis millions of dollars less t h a n the second session of the preceding Congress. The Democrats iu the closing session of the 50th Congress, appropriated $395,337,516.23 for the expenses of Ihe year. The Republicans in tbe 51st Congress increased the appropriations to $463 - · 398,510.77 for the first session, and still" f u r t h e r to $525,018,672.59 for the second session, or an increase of sixty-eight millions of dollars foi the first year and one hundred *ind thirty-nine millions of dollars the second jt.-ir. Succeeding .the Re- publiuaus iu control of the 52d Congress, in 1891, :'ift Democrats reduced-appropriation 'to $507,000,188.75, or seventeen m i l l i o n s of dollars on. the saving side, and llie t e n - dency was downwardJo the Kv»t session of the 53d Congress, when $407.003,520.56 was put down as sufficient , for the needs of the g o v e r n m e n t for , a year. Tbe Republicans were agaiu in control-at the beginning of tliu 54th Congress, and the appropm- tions'for 1897 went up to $515,845,. 194.57, aud up still for 1898 to $530,083,030.10, an" increase for -the respective years of seventeen millions and thirty-three millions of dollars. Thus it seen t h a t when tho Democrats.were put in control of the National Legislature iu 1877, a f t e r the Republicans had held it for si.x- · teeii yeais, they immediately began to curtail the public expenditures, and it is noticeable that d u r i n g the continuance of their control the up propriations were held down to the lowest point au efficient public sei 1 vice would permit--increase of p o p - ulation carrying w i t h it, of course, relative increase of expenditures --the unusual increases, .whenever they occurred d u r i n g Democratic control, were invariably tiaeeable to Republican entailment. Conversely, when the Republicans succeeded the . Democrats in control of the Con. press, the'appropriations tvere immediately and enormously increased, arid increase was the order of the · day as long as they continued in power. The people were not slow to observe this tendency and cou sequently limited tbeir power to a ' single Congress term at intervals of , four to .sis years. They are now on one of those probationary terms, the chief fruits of which are the Diagley ' deficit-making bill and the largest public expenditure of p u b l i c money in Ihe history of this g o v e r n m e n t . The people will t u r n again to t h e Democrats, the couservatots of all · their rights, to rescue t h e m as Aforetime fron^ftepublican extravagunce. £* foro the year had passed, travelers realized t h a t t h o r n was a gicat deal more botch work t h a n any o t h o r k i n d . The old system of d i v i d i n g (lie tvoik i n t o so m a n y sections is one of "the very worst features of the old system, iu view of the fact t h a t by it vpry few if any of our supervise)s h a v e ever thoroughly learned t h e a i t of making good roads. They h a v e not been able to gain the experience which ib so essential. It is uoi ieu.iarka.ble t h a t the people aie heartily tired of the old hap-haz- zard, and withal outrageously expensive fashion in c a r r y i n g on one of the most i m p o r t a n t branches of onr public service. So m u c h money, ill-expended, so m u c h t i m e in travel, have been' wasted, it is a wonder t h a t the people have so long tolerated such poor r e t u r n s for their in\ c b t n i e n t s iu the form of tax assessments. LAWYERS FOR MAGISTRATES. A GOOD SYSTEM DEMANDED. The d e m a n d for a better system-or rather, some system--of working .the public roads is geneial t h r u u g h 'out the State, and the resolutions passed by the Dentou meeting last Tuesday will be endorsed by a majority of the people of the county. Some reforms can only be a t t a i n e d " after years of effort, and it has been shown that that of, the public road service is one of the hardest to secure. Despite the appeals of the press and many people tlitre has » been nothing of moment accomplished for t w e n t y years, so far as this .- and some other Maryland counties are concerned. ' Advancement in - others things has left the old system far," far behind. Year after year the awards have been made by t h e c o u u - - - -tfr, {^commissioners to the many super'" visors, hardly a dozen of whom had the proper equipments or sufficient "experience to enable them to perform the service.

Now nr.d tlicn a free-silver journal, .tiling under the name of n Democratic paper, tnlksswaggeringly about llie 'Ding- Icy deficit," but it presumes greatly on the i^ri-r-uiee of its readers, since this bill thus iur this month is averaging n million dol- lats a day, about what it costs to run the gmernment. "If ignorance is bliss 'tis 'olly'to be wise."--American Union. Exactly! 'Twould be worse t h a n folly--positive chagrin--for Republican newspaper editors to know the enoi-iuous amount required to run this government for the fiscal year 1S9S. The total appropriations for the year are $530,083,030.10, very uoar one million and a half per day. If the icceipts from customs and internal r e v e n u e are one million per day for each of the 365 days, and Ihe postoffice and miscellaneous receipts are $96,000,000, there will be ti shortage of sixty eight millions of dollais at the end of the year. But tho receipts from customs and internal revenue have not been a m i l l i o n a day for the business days since tho Dinglcy law went into effect, and it is not likely they will do that well. In f a c t , customs have averaged $10,000,000 und internal $12,120,000 per m o u t h u p to the middle of February. Hence a larger deficit may be looked tor on the 30th of June next, than the $G9,000,000 the McKinley law produced in its closing year. Not alone are the people of the State of Delaware to be congratulated on the passing of J. Edward Addicks. There are signs of fail- promise in such things. The iu- tiueuce of Addick's political d o w n fall will be felt for good beyond the Marrow confines of little Delaware. The Smyrna Gall makes this appropriate c o m m e n t : Our Addicts friends are quieter just now than they have ever been siuce that mangy sort or politics came into fashion here. There is not n bound to be heard. Not even a whisper that a warm south wind can catch as you listen and listen, .Not even the enemy's well-known cough. Tlie enemy rests at last. He was tired. He got t re 1 at St. Louis. The mandamus may have fred him. The avalanche or conventions bent upon him and he sleeps May he sleep long.. A great deal has been said recently of the justices of the peace in this city and t h r o u g h o u t the State and of t h e u n f i t n e s s of many of llietu for the places they fill. The complaint is not a new one. The ollice of justice of the peace is an honorable and desirable one- It is the people's court, to w h i c h those who are most helpless and least able to take care of themselves are taken. Ignorant, careless or dishonest magistrates are in a position to inflict the most serious i n j u i y upon the poorer classes oE the people. Those who understand their rights can appeal from unjust decisions and are subjected to n o t h i n g mure serious t h a n additional expense or vexation. But w i t h the great majority of l i t i g a n t s before the 'justices it is different, and they m u s t depend u p o n the h u m a n i t y aud sense ot justice of the magistrate himself. One great cause of the deterioration of t h i s office is the small compensation received. This is largely due to tho division of the business among such a m u l t i - tude of justices that no single one, or, at least, only a few get enough to make the office desirable. It has been suggested t h a t the trouble might be remedied by reducing the n u m b e r of justices, enlarging their jurisdiction and requiring at least a portion of them, if not all, to be educated lawyers. There nlso m i g h t be some salary attached to the office, as in the case o£ police justices in Baltimore city. As it is, tho circuits courts in the counties and the city court in B a l t i m o i e are overwhelmed w i t h appeals in t r i f l i n g cases which should never occupy the time of the court. With a justice of the peace who knows the law to decide-cases in 'the first instance' there would be fewer appeals, as litigants would have more confidence in his decisions. But injustice should not be done to the present magistrates. Most of them are worth}' men aud good citizens, honest iu their intentions and desirous to do evenhauded justice. That m a n y of t h e m have not been educated and are not lawyers is the f a u l t ot tho system.-- The Sun. STATE AND FEDERAL PATRONAGE. The Easton Gazette is told by competent a u t h o r i t y that if t h e Talbot c o u n t y {axes for 1894-'°5 were all collected there would be enough money iu tho treasury to build the new courthouse, and that '96 and '97 collections would run the expenses clear of debt until the nest levy · ' W h a t a system of laxity we enjoy in this respect," exclaims the Gxzette. The same easygoing methods obtain in many other counties and, by tho way, we are not entirely free from it iu Caroline, despite our good I reasury law. The pension extravagance of the nation has become so alarming that the people of some of the Eastern Shore counties are fearful that the local pensions, granted by the c o u n - ty commissioners to indigent per- sous, may finally become a dangerous abuse. It is said the policy fo awnrd pensions is a growing evil. Especially is Queen Anne's have the pension lists grown large. There arc t w o local pension bills, for Queen Anne's, before.the legislature now. J. Edward Addicks was "spoken of" tor Congress, but he wrote a few days ago to the Wilmington Every Keening to say that he would not accept any office iu the gift of thf people of Delaware, except that-of United States Senator--and for that, ho might have added, his chances are so remote that they are hardly worth mentioning. In the death of William W. Busteed the editorial profession of this State loses one of its best aud brightest members. The sad event is contemplated with keenest regret. Few enjoyed or deserved a wider f r i e n d ship among his fellows, aud rarely might we find one endowed w i t h more admirable qualities of mind and heart. Work of the Children's Home Society. W h a t shall be done w i t h homeless children 1 This is one of the questions asked by all who are interested in social progress. Among the answers given is the one of the Children's Home Society, which says, "find a place for them in childless homes." This society has been in existence for fourteen years, and is now at work in twenty-three States, where it has been organized. The plan of the work is to'secure au organization known as the local hoard in every city and town of a given State. These local boards report to the central office all homeless children in their territory, and also pass upon the fitness or unfitness of those who wish to secure children from the society for adoption. In this way, w i t h small outlay of! money, m a n y thousands of homeless children are placed in Christian families, to the everlasting benefit of both children and those who take them. This society is not organized in M a r y l a n d , but a beginning has been made. In December of last year Mr. Henry Euker, of Ridgely, secured two children for adoption through the New Jersey branch of this society. Iu January Rev. M. T. Lamb, the superintendent of the .Now Jersey branch, visited Ridgely and orgau- ized a local board, with the following officers : President, T. W. Smith; vice-president, Henry Euker ; secretary, Sarah H o f f m a n ; treasurer, Alice Flounders. Last week Rev. M. L. Mayo, of the New Jersey branch, also visited Ridgely, and addressed a large audience iu the M. E. C n n r c h on the subject. It is tho purpose of fhe National Board to organize the Eastern Shore and Delaware as a State in the near f u t u r e , and the organization at Ridgely is the first step in the work.

Upon t h u Board of Public Works do- volves the appointment of the em- ployes ot the Oyster Police Navy and State Tax Commissioner. Thomas J. Keating's term will expire in May. Senator Dodsou, of Talbot county, au Eastern Shore Republican leader, is among those suggested as the probable successor of Mr. Keating. Mr. Dodsou has served as chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, and is a member of the Senate Finance Committee. Concerning the matter of patronage the State and city Republican politicians are anxious about the big Federal p l u m s that have not' yet been distributed. Thp fact t h a t Senator McCoraas recognized AS h a v i n g Senator Wellington in leadership is m a k i n g some of them wonder "where they are at." President McKinleyisapparantly a n x i o u s to appoint Wai field Monroe, Postmaster General Gary's business manager, to the position of Surveyor of t h e P o i t o f Baltimoto, but, if it is s h o w n h i m t h a t the a p p o i n t m e n t will not be for the best inteiests of the party he will not hesitate to put aside his personal preference. Similarly the reappointment ot Postmaster W a r f i e l d . o f Baltimore, ( h e Independent Democratic leader, is acceptable to him, unless he learns t h a t the Republicans of Maryland, and particularly of Baltimore, stroug- ly prefer that tho office be given to a straight Republican. Mr. McComas is still on the bench, and keenly recognizes that it is a delicate task for him to make any suggestions of a political nature; but it is understood t h a t at the President's solicitation he will, before long, invite Senator Wellington and the six Representatives to discuss the subject of how to make the most j u d i - cious and satisfactory disposition of the Federal patronage. He.has up to the present time refrained' from "indorsing" any candidate for office, and, while he feels no disposition to o v e r t u r n any plans that may have been made previously to his r e t u r n to active politics, it is premature to regard any political slates as "unbreakable" simply because the names on that slate h a v e been written by former leaders of the party. Judge McConms believes there is DO urgent need for u n d u e haste, and t h i n k s that the more important offices will be filled before the a d j o u r n m e n t of the Legislature. Meanwhile Senator Wellington continues as silent as ho was during the Senatorial contest. He apparently fully realizes -that Judge McComas is now tho man to w h o m the politicians look for adviee and favors, and he is willing to shift tho burdeu of the office-seekers on his shoulders. Friends of Judijo McComas say ho is very anxious a b o u t the coming Congressional campaign. Every one of the present solid Republican delegation in the House is a candidate for ve-electiou. Messrs. McDonald, Mudd and Barber count ou Senator McComas'support for renomination, and it is probable that the members troni the Sixth and Fifth districts will be renominated and re-elected w i t h o u t gvej-t d i f f i c u l t y . Dr. Barber, of the Eastern Shore district, it is conceded, w i l l have a double figh t ou his hands. He will have opposition for tho nomination and w i l l have a desperate fight for ro-oloc- tion. Mi'. Baker, ot the Second district, if he determines to becomes a candidate, is believed to be able to take care of himself. It would be idle to attempt a prediction as to the fate of either Messrs. Mclntyre or Booze, tho two Baltimore city raembeis. The relation o£ the dist r i b u t i o n of the patronage to the chances for tho n o m i n a t i o n ' 'and' election of the Representatives will be carefully discussed at the coming conference. It is Judge McComas' wish that tho discordant wings of the party shall gel together, aud the strongest factor in tho disposition of patronage will be the desire to re- stoie harmony and to return as m a n y members as possible to the next House of Representatives.

That another bank in this c o u n t y would succeed, from the investor's s t a n d p o i n t , is a t best problematical, so m a n y of our citizens being interested in the old one, but that a manufactory, such as there are hundreds of in other parts of the country, would pay a liberal percentage to the stockholders, and at the same time gire employment to those who need it, there can be no reasonable doubt, if one-half the care and energy be exerciaod that it takes to run a bank successfully. Let us support o u r old bank, which has grown up with us, and maybe it will help us to get more enterprises about us. ENTEBPRISE. To the Editors of tho JOURNAL: It is rumored t h a t Denton is shortly to h a v e another national bank. If rumor is correct, it is to^be regarded as a good o m e n , as it clearly establishes the fact that among our people there is still a surplus of un- invested capital, the holders of w h i c h are only awaiting an opportunity to invest the same w h i n e it can be done to the best advantage. Where, I ask, can capital be more profitably placed t h a n in the stock of n a t i o n a l banks 1 Let us t a k e , as an illustration, our present National Bank of Denton, the shares of which are worth to-day oue dollar and eighty-five cents each, besides which, nccoiding to the last a n n u a l statement, the stockholders are paid 8 per cent, per a n n u m . With such f a i l s before us, where, I ask, can another investment be found in which capital would yield to the investor more profitable r e t u r n s ! There certainly is room in Caroline county for another bank, w h i c h , if conducted on sound business principles, cannot fail to be profitable to the projectors and -at the same "time a great accommodation to the business public. Therefore, let those of our business men having capital at command look at this matter in a Business light, aud push it to a successful issue, thereby securing for I heir unemployed capital a profitable i n v e s t m e n t .
