M E L V I N , STEELE 4 J O H N S O N . EDITORS AND P R O P R I E T O R S . SATURDAY MORNING, MARCH 26, 1898. BOARD OF TRAEE FOR DENTON. The initial steps for the organization of a. Board of Trade for this town were taken at a meeting- of tlic citizens on Monday night. The interest manifested by those present- cm 1 most enterprising and represcr.- i.-itive men--pives assurance t h a t , appreciating the o p p o r t u n i t i e s and the jjroat work before t h e m , they intend to tackle it \ \ i t l i a (lott-rinina- tion t h a t will merit success, a n d , we believe, will attain it. Few towns on the Eastern Shore are more favorably located t h a n Denton for n i n n u f n c t n r i n g enterprises. W i t h i n three or f o u r hours' r u n , by rail, of MIth d i s t r i b u t i n g centres as B u J i i - inore a n d Philadelphia, whence our manufactures could find an outlet not only to every section of t h i s country, but to foreign countries as well, and with a freight rate as low as the same mileage anywhere, are advantages which speak tor themselves. ' Some of the other advantages will be presented by the Board of Trade, when it has been organized, to all manufacturers seeking location. This much can be said now, on behalf of every public- spirited citizen, that the hand of welcome will be extended to all who come to invest tbeir capital in labor- omploying enterprises, or who come to make a home in our rapidly growing town. The situation, .public buildings and institutions and e u - 'virouments of Denton are unusually good. The location is high and healthy, with good natural drainage; the court house is an ornament to the town and a credit to the county; the schools are supplemented by a'n ·excellent high school; t h o church buiJdiugs completed and in course of erection give choice among the various denominations; · the town ball is suitable for the present public needs; tho hotels enjoy a reputation for excellence in cuisine not surpassed on the peninsula; the mercantile interests are fully represented; the private residences are in the . main neat, comfortable and well- kept, and surrounding (he town in all directions are the farm lands with half-taxed capabilities for the production of grains, fruits, vegetable, etc., awaitingthe willing hand to double, or quadruple, their yield, Denton has felt within the year the o'pening of the Queen Anne's Railroad. It has given an impetus to building, and the growth has just cleverly begun.' By'the well-directed efforts of a p^nd. Board of Trade Denton can be madu 1 to take rapid strides toward the position she ought to occupy among the towns of the Eastern Shore. A SIGNIFICANT CONFERENCE. A dispatch to the New Yorfc Herald Tuesday last said: "An interesting, significant conference took place at the White House today. Upon the invitation of the President Senators Allison, of Iowa*, and Gorman, of Maryland, recognized leaders of the two great parties in (he Senate, called at the Executive -Mansion immediately after the adjournment of the Cabinet. Senator Allison and Senator Gorman were invited .to the White House in order that the- President might inform them of the policy of the administration in dealing with this subject and to invoke the co-operation of the Senate in considering the question with due deliberation. ' The conference lasted nearly an hour, during which the subject was discussed from every .conceivable standpoint. 'Tho President was exceedingly anxious to know just what the sentiment of the Senate is regarding the subject of independence for Cuba, and he asked his visitors if they thought tbe recognition of Cuban independence would bring to an end the distressing state of affairs on the island. He was informed that while a. majority of the.Sen- ate is^ unquestionably in favor of Cuban independence, as was demonstrated by the passage of more than one resolution to that effect, there is a very strong sentimhut in that body in favor of intervention. One of the Senators remarked that .he feared'the case had gone beyond the point where any practical results conJd be derived from tLe recognition of Cuban independence. He went on to say that the whole civilized world seems to be in sympathy with the Uuiled States'for its humanitarian efforts in behalf of the suffering Cubans. All.the world has ,for several years past regarded tbe United States as exercising a friendly and humane protectorate over the Cubans, and it seemed to him that nothing but active intervention will meet the demands of the situation." "It is with sorrow and shame," reports tho committee of tho Society for the Protection of Birds, "that we bare to confess that the fashion of nsing the -plumage of birds for millinjary purposes continues unabated; that in fact, it bad, in 1897, assumed greater proportions than ever.' This can be fully evidenced by studying the catalogues of the firms who sell the freshly imported birds' skins and feathers by public suction. ~The government isgreatly strengthening the defenses of Baltimore. 'The contractors of the fortifications *t Hawkins, and North, Points had full forces of men L^ork Sunday hastening - their cflBPretion. The gang are being 'mounted as fast as the foandat ions are r*»djr. EDITORIAL NOTES. The indications are t h a t a climax i n t h e Spanish-Cuban affair w i l l V o reached in a few days, and Iho worst of the woes of the people of tho stricken isle will soon be over. Three U n i t e d States Senators, who have traveled extensively in Cuba, have described at length in the Senate the horrors of devastation and starvation which stalk abroad. The last of these speeches was delivered by Mr. Thurston on Thursday last, and his portrayal sent fresh t h r i l l s of horror throughout tho country. lie showed that under the policy of Weyler 400,000 non-combatants had been driven from t h e i r homes on the farms, and had been imprisoned, w i t h o u t food and provision, in the barren barracks about the fortified cities. Tlieie tlmy are fetill starving by hundreds, and Spain offers them no relief. A conservative estimate is t h a t 210,000 persons havo already perished from starvation. Such spectacles have been witnessed that the scenes of the Inferno, by Dante, have almost been realized. These facts, having been made k n o w n the world over, the demand is now made in t h u n d e r tones t h a t the merciless and murderous policy of Spain be stopped at once. The voice of h u m a n i t y cries out for it, and the duty falls upon this country, whose p o w e r f u l arm alono can strike the fetters from prostrate Cuba. A bill has been introduced by Senator Westeott, chairman of the Finance Committee, authorizing the Board of Public Works to sell the annuity of $90,000 payable by the Northern Central Railway Company to the Stato of Maryland. It is not to be sold for a sum less than an amount equal to tho capitalization oE the annuity at three and one-half per cent., together with any portion of the quarterly payments which may bo due. Tho bill also provides for the sale of the State's holdings in the capital stock of the Baltimore and Potomac Railroad, valued at about $30,000. The capitalization as proposed would a m o u n t to about $2,572,000. Senator Westeott stated that tbe purpose of disposing of these assests is to use the proceeds towards payment of the State's indebtedness. .The bill was presented after consultation with the State finance officers. The bill for a good roads commission was favorably reported in the Senate on Wednesday last, after be- jng amended so as to provide for the appointment of a road expert instead of a commission. The officer shall give information to county commissioners, prepare plans for' building good roads, and make an examination of suitable material for State road building. Now, if the right man for the position can be found something good ought to be accomplished in road-making. Tbe availability of Hon. John S. Wirt, of Cecil," as a candidate for the Democratic nomination for the governorship is being discussed among the members of the General Assembly. It is said, in his behalf, that he is free from factional differences, and this is much in his favor. Mr. Wirt has a good record. D u r i n g the present war Spain has lost 70,000 soldiers, and conquered none of the rebelious provinces. It takes the Spainard a long time to realize that Cuba is bouud to be free. Important events tending to bring about a climax in the Cuban situation, are expected to occur in rapid succession in Congress next week. The Cruiser Amazonas. recently purchased from th«» Brazilian government by the United States, will be called the New Orleans. Delegate James, of: Baltimore, has introduced a bill designed to prevent smoking in tbe public offices of State and city. It is said that monitors will be sent to Lewes, in case of war, there being no fortifications. 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 hud an attack of croup and we were afraid that we would loose him. Seeing Charaberlain'sCougbRemedy advertised, we decided to give it a trial. It gave almost instant relief and we believe it saved the child's life. Since then we have not been w i t h o u t a bottle of this remedy in the house and we recommend it to everyone as being an honest Cough Remedy." -For sale by Hugh DuUoy, Hillsboro; R. J. Colston, Ridgely; W. E. Brown, Dentou. '"There is one enjoyment, that we may all alike enjoy," said tho man of moderate means, "and that is the w a r m t h of r e t u r n i n g spring. 1 can always tell when spring has really tome by seeing somebody standing in f r o n t of a building, where he is sheltered from the wind, enjoying the sunshine of the first really gentle day after winter. There is a mellowness about it, a broad, great geniality, that is unmistakable and t h a t we accept with grateful hearts. It pervades us with present comforts and gives us much promise of the future. The glow may last, on the first day, but a little time; it may be chilly before and after. Happy is he who is abroad on this day, and who happens upon a sheltered spot at such an hour as to receive it--the sun's first spring greeting to the ·artfa." WANASIAKER'Sa PH1LADOLMHA, Monday, March 21,189 Spring Dress Fabrics Sorry, but some of the Paris stuffs didn't reach us in time for last week's exhibit. Still, one could hardly have compassed a greater textile display. Enough of last week's favorites have gone to give show room to the new, and so the ever-changing show goes on. No other store in the wide world shows such variety of dress fabrics; no other American retail store gathers elegance with so little of waste. It isn't strange that on matchable goods our prices are least. And it fs equally certain that the absolutely exclusive things are priced in the same common-sense way--cost of direct gathering and fair surplus tor the storekeeping. Crepe Brilliants.

Bed ^ SCORE of handsome c * A White Quilts deserve spreads a t e t l i n g of their dean fresh beauty. The refurnishing of the beds for spring has made them uppermost in housekeepers' thoughts.
