MELVIN, STEELE JOHNSON, EDITORS AND PROPRIETORS. SATURDAY MORNING, MARCH 5. EDITORIAL NOTES. WE MUST HAVE GOOD ROADS- The good roads question is u n d e r discussion in many States besides Maryland. There is a concensus of opinion in favor of their i m p r o v e - m e n t , and the discussion is, t h e r e fore, of the most economical in cans of making 1 t h e m and keeping t h e m in the best possible repair a f t e r t h e y are made. E x p e r i m e n t s have demonstrated beyond cavil that the use of-broad tires is a prime agent in keeping the roads in good repair. It is asserted on good a u t h o r i t y t h a t every trip of the broad-tire wagon over a moderate^' good load makes it bettor, packing 1 it f i r m l y and m a k i n g l i t t l e or no rut for the f o r m a t i o n o f puddles by rains; and every trip of the narrow-tire wagon over the same road makes it worse, by the c u t t i n g deep ruts for other vehicles to follow. It is p l a i n , then, t h a t the use of the narrow tire,almost exclusively in use here, is more costly to tlio tax-paying public than would be the broad tire, in t h a t the roads are not so easily kept in repair. Should the county commissioners, in response to the well-nigh u n a n i m o u s d e m a n d for good roads, determine to hire a competent m a n , or a. number o£ competent men, and m a k e some first- class roads and then make proper arrangement for keeping them in repair, the economy oE the plan ·nould be so quickly manifested that its adoption and application to all our public roads would speedily follow. It would be the part of wisdom for farmers to help along the good roads movement, so important to t h e m , and displace the narrow tire as rapidly as possible by the broad tire. The least trial of the broad tire on the f a r m -- o n grass land, stubble or plowed ground--will demonstrate its lighter draft, and its general utility there, as well as its road- saving qualities and ultimate economy for the p u b l i c highways. The people are demanding better returns for the heavy investments in the way of road taxes and. better roads they will ha-ve, n o t w i t h s t a n d i n g the e v i dent discouragement .that is manifesting itself in some quarters. WILL IT BE PEACE OR WAR? No other course t h a n the one thus far pursued with regard to the Maine disaster would have befitted a nation as ijirat as ours. Ones of two things must he clearly established by the Board of Inquiry now in session--that the Spaeth officials had fore-knowledge of the disaster and directed it or connived at i i j or t h a t they had no knowledge of it w h a t ever. If it shall be found t h a t Spain was responsible for t h e destruction of the Maine, war between the two powers will be inevitable; and war into which all the bitterness of revenge would enter. On the other hand, if ^the Spanish authorities at Havana were i g n o r a n t of the danger in which our vessel was placed in their harbor, and guiltless of intention to do her harm, then the Uniled States uould not demand i n d e m n i t y for the loss of the ship or for the loss of t h e 250 seamen, unless on the plea of contributory negligence, or lack of the precaution which should have been taken to prevent accident to a visiting vessel, as was done in the case 6£ the Vizcaya, which recently visited New York harbor. Of course, if it shall be found t b a t the explosion was w i t h i n the Maine, the -finding of the cause will'have no i n t e r n a t i o n a l bearing. A week or weoks may yet intervene before the Board of Inquiry makes its report. In the meantime preparations will be made to punish Spain for a dastardly deed, or to demand reparation for loss oi - life and property, according to her accountability shown by the report of the Board of Inquiry. " President SIcKinley can do nothing but wait for the finding of that court before taking decisive action in this case. , Our people would welcome a peace fnl settlement of the sad affair, if it can be proven t h a t it was an accident, pure and simj le, whatever the cause may have been; but if it is · clearly,shown that Spanish authorities treacherously murdered two h u n - dred of our seamen w h i l e asleep, then woe unto Spain. An exchange gives the f o l l o w i n g list of eight classes of people who do t h e t o w n no good: "Piiht, tli»se who go out of t o w n to do t h e i r t r a d - ing. Second, those who oppose imp r o v e m e n t s . Third, those who pro-' fer a quiet town to one of push and business. F o u r t h , those w h o t h i n k business can be done slyly and w i t h o u t a d v e r t i s i n g . F i f t h , those w h o deride public spirited m o u . S i x t h , those who oppose every m o v e m e n t t h a t does n o t o r i g i n a t e w i t h t h e m selves. S e v e n t h , those who oppose any public enterprise t h a t does not appear to b e n e f i t them. Eight, those who seek to i n j u r e the credit of an individual. At a conference on Wednesday the R e p u b l i c a n senators agreed u p o n an a m e n d m e n t to Senator Dryden's school commissioner bill, and t h a t b i l l w i l l be passed by the Senate as amended. By this a m e n d m e n t the p r e s e n t . school commissioners w i l l not be disturbed except that the terms will end and begin in May instead of August, as at present. This w i l l accomplish Senator Dryden's object in h a v i n g school trustees and e x a m i n e r s appointed '.by the incoming boards of commissioners this year, instead of by the outgoing boards, many of w h i c h have a Democratic majority. Visitors note the transformation which has been worked in our town in the past twelve months, and comm e n t very favorably upon it. The general opinion is t h a t there is no town on the peninsula which shows signs of greater growth d u r i n g the past year. This is only an earnest of w h a t we might expect if all our business men would make a united effort toward.improvement, and in- a u g u r a t e enterprise which would give profitable e m p l o y m e n t to m a n y who would gladly avail themselves of it. Governor Lowndes settled any doubt that may have existed in connection with the act c h a n g i n g the name of the Sheppard A s y l u m to the Sheppard and Enoch Pratt Hospital for the Insane by approving it on Wednesday. The bill is, therefore, now a law. The Governor had u n t i l Tuesday to consider the question of approval, but he chose to end all doubt by decisive action. Senator Crothers' bill to prohibit gambling and pool-selling in Cecil county has become a law, and the people of that county have cause to rejoice. What is still needed is an act to prevent the recurrence of the evils complained of in other counties of the State. The good of all agricultural fairs demands such legislation. Col. J. Thomas Scharf, one of Maryland's most p r o m i n e n t historians, died at his home in New York, on Monday'last. He was p r o m i n e n t in politics, and held a n u m b e r of i m p o r t a n t positions. Of these we have- a t y p i c a l example f a m i l i a r to everyone in d r e a m - ing, w h i c h is a state of a u t o m a t i c mental activity of n kind so ir- regnlar t h a t the most extraordinary characters are consistent not merely w i t h the most f a m i l i a r experiences, but also w i t h e v ach other. Yet, as has been t r u l y r e m a r k e d n o t h i n g surprises us in our dreams, as we are n e v e r struck w i t h the impossibility of the e v e n t s which wo seem to witness, but we accept w i t h genuine child-like s i m p l i c i t y , a l l the w o n d e r f u l c o m b i n a t i o n s w h i c h are successfully u n f o l d e d before the mental view. The same must be the case in any state of mental a c t i v i t y , as iu h y p n o - tism, in which there is a similiar abrogation of v o l u n t a r y control. Prof. Diggaus will, in the near f u t u r e explain the condition of a person w h i l e in a h y p n o t i c state. THE RIGHT oV SUFFRAGE. Some of the greatest high protection organs sometimes have moments of clear vision. Speaking of the carpet trust which . is to send prices away beyond the reach of most people the Philadelphia Ledger says: Having got all the protection from government that they asked for, the manufacturers now scheme tocreate agreat'trust or combination TrUich will enablethem to fix arbitrary prices on their products, to decree wage-scales, and enforce theirdecree, and to prevent all competition among dealers. Such a trust would be not only in restraint of trade, but a conspiracy against the consumer of and the employes m a k i n g the carpets. Yet this trust would bo no worse than the many others which have sprung up like mushrooms and grown strong as oaks nnder the trust-breeding provisions of the Dingley act." "William M.^Singerly, publisher of the Philadelphia Record, died of heart disease ,on Sunday last, aged 65 years. -His afflictions and his fatal attack were brought on by excessive smoking. Mr. Singerly was one-of Philadelphia's ' moat popular ' and useful citizens, NrWSPAPF.RfllCfilVE® ,,_ . MR. C. HARVEY DIGGANS, HYPNOTIST. A Wilmington paper a few days ago gave an account of a hypnotic entertainment recently given in Wilmington by Prof. C. Harvey Diggaus, who formerly resided in this county: Hen is, his subject, was put in a cataleptic state and bore four hundred and fifty pounds on his breast. He also put a lady in the same state and she had seven teeth pulled. He gives a full statement below, which is the key and secret of hypnotism. "Hypnotism is creating wide spread sensation, andis being taught t h r o u g h o u t this country as well as all of Europe as a, science. There is m u c h gained by the knowledge of h y p n o t i s m . "It is too bad. insane persons cannot be treated, for there are a great m a n y eases of deafness, etc., that have been cured, and the mentally weak persons are incapable of conc e n t r a t i o n that is essential to the hypnotic state. Dr. Simon, of New York city, has t h o u g h t out a machine, had it patented and put in usp, with which he cnu hypnotise ninety-eight per cent, and he is the only man l i v i n g who has hypnotised an insane person. Mr. C. Harvey Ditrgaus, of this city, who has for some time made it his study has a new method of pro- duciug hypnotic sleep, which can hypnotise to a greater per cent, than in the old method. Where he has used it, it has caused a widespread sensation. The subject passes off into a , p e a c e f u l sleep, and when awakened is off in a pleasant state of mind. This is known as the starring method. For years the knowledge of how to produce hypnotism has been in the possession of a few traveling professors and charlatans who have used every means in I heir power to keep the public from getting acquainted but today more interest is taken in it; thousands are learning the method. A hypnotised person is one who is possessed of no will power, and has lost the volitional control over the direction of his thoughts; his mind is perfectly blank yet is ppen to receive any suggestion, which may be conveyed to him by the operator through the ordinary channels of sensation. W h e n he is under this power he sees sights, and hears sounds without knowing that he really sees or hears them. The directing power of the will being suspended, the the capability of correcting the most illusory ideas by an appeal to common sense, is for the time annihilated. The following is sent us as a reply to the argument against woman's suffrage, at the Hickman debating society on Saturday n i g h t last: "This question is one w h i c h is p u a ?.ling wiser heads than ours; in fact, the subject is being agitated before Congress by delegates from several States. "The theory has been advanced by some of the 'Lords of Creation' that if women were given t h e r i g h t of franchise she would degrade her sex, by partaking of that accursed liquid--whiskey--and by selling her vote. Could she do worse t h a n the men? Nine-tenths of them do both. Women have too much granito for either of them. Women, who can reign in monarchies, ought to vote in republics. Surely, if she can rule the United Kingdoms, why cannot she have the right of suffrage in a small republic? A gentleman said the other day, 'If women are given tho right of franchise, the next t h i n g she will be occupying the presidential chair.' We do not aspire to ride and drive, too; but should we be so highly honored by our beloved brethren, we will not crow or try to push you i n t o oblivion; wo will preside iu a garb of modesty, and have compassion on the we,ak. Another says man w o u l d lose his respect for h e r . MEN would not, but the illiterate imitations of men m i g h t , as they have no respect for womankind at present. "What do we care for their opinions? "Such has been the crushing effect of public sentiment that women feel almost like apologizing for being on the earth at all. Some say it is 'unconstitutional.' They do not understand the meaning of the constitution. Had our f o r e f a t h e i s foreseen how the present generation were going to take it as-^the foundation of all arguments concerning man, and ignore it when woman is mentioned, they most assuredly would not have written it so as to mystify them. Wheu it says Jail men are created equal, it does not intend to include one and exclude another. "A gentleman present v i r t u a l l y said that woman was not intellectually capable of deciding so inomen tous a question as concerns the welfare of the whole nation, and should this privilege be accorded her, tho polls would not behold him in the future. Does not a woman's brain contain as many convolutions as that of the illiterate white man or negro? They help make and decide laws which she must obey and they arc bribed to do so. Woman does not bribe the illiterate populace to cast favor for her. She lets men win Are men so honest as not to act the traitor? "Not she with traitorous kiss her Saviour stung Not she denied Him with unholy tongue, She, while apostles shrank, could dangers brave Last lit His cross and earliest at His grave." "It is constitutional for women to drop, re-plant and thin corn anc pick berries all day; also to act in the capacity of goat climbing over the wood-pile hunting for a short stick. She is his equal there, bill n o t intellectually. "Why do men close their college doors to women? Because, in the race for knowledge, she outstrips t h e m . What did our forefathers fight for? Nothing less t h a n thai there should not be taxation w i t h o u t representation. Just what you are doing to-day, taxing us, who are real estate holders, without an assenting voice. W i t h some, every thing that concerns t h e m is uncon stitutional for us to participate in. Somo men would, if they dared and could, place woman back in heathenism. "It has been remarked, by some t h a t they could not discuss this sub jcct except from a biblical stand point, and that the Bible says 'Wo man is to hold her peace.' Does tin Bible student k n o w that is only figii rative, as many other sayings arol IE she is to hold her peace, why dii tho Lord [address her first in th Garden of Eden? Why didn't H ignore her? No, Eve was the firs addressed; Adam was not visible. PAULINE DALE." Mr. L. W. Nichols, East New M a r k e t , Md., states: "W 0 e u!i not say too m u c h in favor of Cham berlain's Cough Remedy. Abou three years ago one of our children had an attack of croup and we wen afraid that we would loose him Seeing Chamberlain'sCough llemedj advertised, we decided to givo it » trial. It gave almost i n s t a n t relio and we believe it saved tho child life. Since then we' have not been without a bottle of this remedy iu th house and we recommend it to every one as being an honest Cough Rem edy." For sale by Hugh Duffey Hillsboro; R. J.

I T takes all sorts of people to make up the life and animation, the peculiarities and eccentricities of everyday life in this busy world. There are people whenever do anything without thinking, then again there are others who rush headlong into schemes and ventures without taking time to think what the result might be. There are people who have remarkable ideas about economy. A man once purchased a patent ice tray that was guaranteed to save half the ice when properly adjusted in the refrigerator. With much elation over his economic discovery, he took the tray home and presented it to his thrifty wife. He explained the importance of the tray as an ice saver. " It saves half the ice, my dear" "Then you should have bought two of them," replied his wife, "focause if one will save half the ice, two will save all the ice." aSking About "Saving" Prompts us to remind you of the pitraordinary Sale of Suits anrl Overcoats, Furnishings etc., now in progress at Baltimore's wide awake store, THE GLOBE, No. 8 W.
