MELVIN, STEELE . JOHNSON, EDITORS A N D P R O P R I E T O R S . SATURDAY MORNING, MARCH 12, 1898. THE COSTLY GOLD STANDARD. The loss the people of liiis mxtion have sustained in the last t h i r t y years in maintaining tbc single or gold staudiird, as it stauds to-day, roaches beyond computation in sov- ernlty, and in whole readies inevodi- hle proportions. He who owns a farm--much better cultivated and producing an average of double the " crops of thirty years ago--can appreciate his loss when the land goe* upon the market at less than half the price per acre ho paid for it, notwithstanding 1 its improved condition and increased f e r t i l i t y . In the meantime, he has realized that his stock has faileu in price u n t i l it requires three-fold as many horses,etc., to fetch the same amount of money as did One thirty years afro ; that his crops sell for much less money than then, and that his labor till these years has been wasted so far as any results to him show. Or if, perchance, he owed part of the money, he has seen more and more of the products of his labor go to the mortgage holder each year, in interest, and the debt he assumed in good faith, on the basis of values then, lias doubled and been his undoing. The loss to the debtor farmers has been incalculable; but the loss to all classes of farmers and property holders may be approximated in the farm and other statistics officially' published. They show t h a t the per 'capita of farm stock is about the same as thirty years ago, and not at all out of proportion with the requirements of the increased n u m b e r of acres in cultivation, or for consumption .is food, nevertheless prices have .fallen, as above stated, to low-water mark." There has been no overproduction; the loss, therefore, seems absolutely needless. Except by the manipulation of money legislation these things could uot have occurred. What has been done in that direction has been a plenty. A single instance may be cited, in connection with the United States notes or greenbacks. They were issued as a legal tender for all debts except duties on imports .and interest on the public debt. These exceptions created a demand for gold which forced it to a premium of one dollar and eighty-five ceuts and holders were thus enabled to buy two hundred and eighty-five dollars of greenbacks for each hundred dollars in gold; then they wore allowed to exchange the jfiTfnbacks, dollar "for dollar, for United Slates bonds, the interest on which is pay.tble in .coin, aud a subsequent law made the principal of those bonds payable in coin. Thus it will be seen that by manipulation tbc bankers got two dollars and eightj'-five ceuts in bonds, payable in coin, bearing interest payable in coin, (construed by them gold coin), for every dollar invested. They exchanged a gold dollar for a gold dollar aud got a dollar and eighty-five cents and interest, in gold, to boot. Not content ·with, the harvest of interest they were reaping they forced an additional issue of two hundred and sixty millions of dollar's in bonds, with the accompanying burden, of nearly ten millions of dollars per a n n u m for interest. Thirsting still for investments for their hoards, the proposition is now made by Secretary of the Treasury Gage and tbe various monetary commissions to retire the greenbacks with bonds bearing a rate of interest which would mean .an additional outlay of over ten millions of dollars per annum. The fact that the people pay the interest indirectly, does not alter the fact that they do pay it, and because the annual amount is comparatively small is not sufficient reason for incurring a needless expense--an ex- .pense which will loom into great proportions in years to come. The conditions of the past, especially during the war, made the issue of bonds a necessity. No such condition now exists, and the reflection that we have paid three-fifths of the debt we owed in 1867, aud a sum greater than the original debt as interest on it, yet the remaining two- fifths is equal in purchasing power to the.full original debt in 1867, may well call a bait in bond issues until stern necessity forces them. The cause of depressed prices of all commodities is directly duo to the unwarranted change of gold coins from a medium of exchange to a standard of values; tbe legislation that has hedged them about aud fostered their rule of ruin, and the discrediting of silver for coinago as .money on the same, footing it has held for so many, m a n y years. The past may not be retrievable, but the future is with the people. They will surely call to bait a monetary policy unjust and destructive to the sources of our national wealth; and with a broad liberality, guided by justice, ·will so adjust our monetary affairs that the holders of gold, the miners of silver and the food-stuffs producers of the country shall each have full and equal share in.tbe prosperity which right treatment of all of them will bring about. Farmers are encouraged at the outlook for the coming season. So far, all kinds of fruits ure safe. Growers hope to gather a big crop of peaches, and the acreage in wheat is heavier than usual, it being now considered u profitable crop. It is thought, under present conditions, that prices cannot lie very low. GOOD ROADS LEGISLATION. The recent good roads convention at Annapolis appointed a c o m m i t t e e to make special endeavors to secure favorable legislation. A bill is already in committee, and if it becomes a law, the whole question ol! road improvement will bo referred to the State geological survey with authority to survey the roads, suggest menus oC improving, constructing and m a i n t a i n i n g t h e m . It is t h o u g h t that the step contemplated in this bill will at once lead to the intelligent management of the public roads o£ the whole State and bo a great benefit to the people. In road improvements the counties spent $458,904.13 last year. Frederick county spent $20,500, w i t h the aid ot 310 road supervisors, aud Montgomery c o u n t y about $17,000, w i t h t h e assistance of 291 road supervisors. EDITORIAL NOTES. Judge Stake, in the circuit court at Hagerstowu, on Tuesday, sentenced four young men to the House of Correction for twelve years. These Wliooly Goolies desecrated a cemetery one night in February last, throwing down nearly a hundred m o n u m e n t s and destroying m a n y of them. The Judge delivered a short speech on the case, describing the horror and indignation which the vandals caused, and stated that, in the minds of many, capital punishment would not be amiss. But the law considered imprisonment sufficient, the term beingnnywhore from two mouths to a hundred years, within the discretion of tho court. It is gratifying to know that uo other similar case has ever occurred within the State of Maryland. ' Some of % our influential business man are taking active steps looking to the organization of a Board of Trade for Dentou. This will doubtless be accomplished at an early date. The principal object is, we understand, to secure needed enterprises. One, already in view, will likely be secured promptly, and others will be sought. The board will seek in many other ways to improve the town. The proposed organization should be fostered and encouraged by every one. Denton is arousing itself from its Van Winkle slumbers, and tho people of enterprise should help it shake off the lethargy. Without definite reports from any official source to warrant tbe assumption that we are on the eve of a war with Spain, the trend of events this week point that way. The passage of an emergency appropriation of $50,000,000, without a dissenting voice in either house of Congress, accentuates two facts: that there is an expectation of war, aud that in the event of war all section's may be relied on to back the administration to the utmost. Economic questions which now divide our people into parties, would sink out of sight for tho time and patriotism would run rampant over the land. Col. J. C. Mulliken has been appointed a school commissioner for Talbot county. He says there are too many fads and hobby-horses in some schools. Concerning the condition of the school system, he adds: "Well, an energetic, progressive Examiner has much to do with it. His time is given wholly to the schools, as the Commissioners naturally cannot give much time to them. ,'He is responsible to a very large extent for the condition of the school system, whether good or bad." Ex-Postmaster General Wanamaker has formally announced his candidacy for the Governorship of Pennsylvania, as an anti-Quay man. It is barely possible for Mr. Wanaina- !;or to be elected over the machine Republican candidate, unless there be a coalition with the Democrats. It remains to be seen whether or not the Dcmocrate will throw away a fairly good chance of electing their own man to help defeat Boss Quay. A rumor was current in many places on Monday last that General Fitzhugh Lee, United States Cousul- Goneral at Havana, had been assassinated, and a thrill of horror wont through the laud. Such a calamity would have, indeed, been terrible in many ways. The afternoon papers promptly denied the story. Some of our business men are making efforts to secure enterprises for this place, and these efforts should be endorsed by everyone. We believe our town commissioners are ready to encourage the improvements contemplated. In some States farmei's using broad-tire wagons are exempt from road taxes. Isaac Sheppard, the great stove manufacturer, died in Philadelphia on Sunday. Mr. L. W. Nichols, East New Market, Md., states: "We could not say too much in favor of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. About three years ago one of our children had an attack of croup and we were afraid that we- would loose h i m . Seeing Chamberlain'sCoughRemedy advertised, wo decided to give it a trial. It gave almost instant relief and wo believe it saved the child's life. Since then we have not been without a bottle of this remedy in the house and we recommend it to everyone as being an honest Cough Remedy." For sale by Hugh Duffey, Hillaboro; R. J.

Ti the Jidiloiy of the J O U K N A I . · Tho question of woman's suffrage has been discussed in the debating society at Hickman, aud 1 find many of our lady friends are far from being satisfied w i t h the decision haiid- ed in by the judges, a f t e r hearing the facts on tho subjeet. N o w , \v« people have great- respect for ihe fair sex, and t h i n k her work in life a noble work--groat in importance, and of the highest type of any work that can be performed by h u m a n beings--but we are not a-goin'to allow them to vote. We are very sorry to find ourselves so misunderstood, when we make this assertion, aud we willingly bear all tho unpleasantness that this position of anti-suffrage for women brings to us, in various ways, knowing when wo are f u l l y aud rightfully understood we will receive due reward for our uo- ble work of holding up the high standard of womanhood. Now, I think t h a t those who stand in the foremost ranks, working and asking that the right ot! suffrage be granted to women, are governed by pure motives, but they have become so enthusiastic in their efforts to right some of tho wrongs of our government, and to destroy the cause of the evils of our land, that they are willing to step out of their places, out of their sphere in life, without seeing the consequences, and go to the polls. Tho ground on which I claim that a woman should not be granted the privilege of voting is not because she is lacking in intolli- gonce, for this is not the case, nor because she is not equal with man; but because it is something out of her Hue of work, and that the good that she is nobly trying to do cannot be accomplished in that way. Most of the advocates overlook the massos of women aud only have in mind the nnmberwho have pledged themselves and are working against intemperance and wrong. They also must lose sight of the fact that they are h u m a n beings, subject to temptations, just as men are. It is no hard thing to keep from doing wrong w h e n there is no temptation or inducement to stray from the path of justice and duty. So, I f u l l y believe that if their votes counted, sotue successful, steps would be taken to purchase a large per cent of them, and tho women would bo engaged in both buying aud selling. Just t h i n k of it! Wo know such is the case with many who do vote and tho women would not be unlike the men in this respect. Is it not a fact that men can aud do give up most overy other evil before he quits his dirty work in politics. How often he has pledged his word and promised his Creator to do the right, only to fail when November comes. We have many men who are prohibitionists eleven mouths, and some 864 days in the year, but vote a party to license the sale of men on election day. Some people claim woman's suffrage on the ground that she pays taxes, when at the same time they know, or can know, that this is no cause at all. Do not all the laws of our land give the sumo rights to worneu as men? If there be any difference it is in her favor. No one can argue this question in the affirmative without stepping out of the natural order of things, and the instances to which they cite us are exceptions to the rule which nature and nature's God intended. In the order of creation woman comes last and should, therefore, be considered one degree above man, aud we hope to keep them in this elevated position and not have them degraded by allowing them to tread paths so lined with temptations as to cause the downfall and utter ruin of many promising young men. Woman was taken from the side of man that she might be his helpmate, and when we fully and rightfully comprehend aud understand the importance of her being his helpmate we will cease to talk woman's suffrage. To the woman suffragist I would say, study this question more. I do not mean simply to read about it, but study it--give it more thought-and I am sure that you will come over to our way of thinking and give us due credit for our faithfulness in standing for the right. PETEB DALE. Dentil of Junics Worth The funeral of the late James Worth Ridgely took place at Tallapoosa, Ga., Sunday. Mr. Ridgely died on Friday evening before. On Monday 'he suffered an attack of paraylsis, and his brother, Mr. William S. Ridgely, was summoned from Baltimore. He reached Tallapoosa Friday"mormiug. Mr. Ridgo- ly was in his C3d year, aud was the eldest son of the late Rev. Greeu- bury W. Ridgely, a large landed proprietor of this county, and the founder of the towu of Ridgely, who died at an advanced ago in 1883, and is buried in St. John's P. E. Churchyard, Hillsboro. Tho Rev. Mr. Ridgely was a nephew of Judge Richard Ridgely and Henry Ridgely, of A n n e Arundel, now IIowuul, cuuuty, aud tho sou of Dr. T i u u u i u k Ridgely, who settled in Lexington, Ky. There the Rev. Mr. Ridgely was born. In early life he studied IAW, and was once a partner of Henry Clay. Entering the Presbyterian ministry, he lived for many years in Newtown, Bucks county, Pa., where he married a Miss Worth, tho daughter of a Philadelphia merchant, . and where Mr. James Worth Ridgely-was-born. The latter was of extensive education and much literary taste and ability, but his health was always delicate. He spent 15 years in Europe after reaching his majority, and lived in Can- ada, Michigan and Baltimore for many years. Ten years ago he took u p his residence in Tallapoosa. He never married. Ho loft a brother, Mr. William S. Ridgely, of Grccu- bury Point, at the m o u t h of tho Soveni river, and a sister, Mrs. William R. Howard, of 939 St. Paul street, Baltimore.
