INAL M E L V I N , STEELE JOHNSON. EDITORS A N D P R O P R I C T O R S . SATURDAY MORNING, MAY 14, 1898. THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS. It is well, at times, in order to properly appreciate our own cherished institutions to read the opinions of those uot favored w i t h t h e m . T h e - l i g h t of. contrast brings out p r o m i n e n t l y t h o benolicial features as well as the defects, it' they exist. The following f r o m a Western paper s in this connection, quite appropriate: American educators are much given to complaining of the reluctant support given our admirable free schools. But the recent address of the N a t i o n a l Union of Teachers of England show's that they fire not alone in t h e i r complainings. In this address, delivered at the t w e n t y - n i n t h a n u u n l conference, Prof. Wadding ton practically declared t h a t the English system of board and voluntary schools working side by side is a failure, and he pleaded for "the removal of the proper education of the child from the arena oE dogma doctrine of party politics." He spoke this as a churchman and the master of a church school. "How long," he asked, "is the education of the English boy and girl to be subject to the fitful generosity of the benevolent, while the superior education of the Swiss and the German is undermining our industrial and commercial supremacy in the markets of the world?" The English board schools, supported by imperial and local taxes, last year had nearly two and a-halE million pupils, and the voluntary schools, supported in part by voluntary contributions, had nearly three million pupils. There were 20,976 teachers in the board schools and 26,470 in the voluntary schools, or one certified teacher for every eighty pupils in the former, and one for every 115 pupils in the latter. The difference illustrates the superiority of a system in which the schools are supported wholly by public revenues to one in w h i c h v o l u n t a r y contributions are depended upon even in part. There is a corresponding difference in the compensation of teachers per pupil t a u g h t , and Lord Rosebery. is quoted as saying that this difference represents a monetary sacrifice on the part of the teacher or the employment of children to act as guides and captains to children well nigh their own age. Tho school system in operation in the United States, as well as in parts of Europe, secures substantial u n i f o r m i t y among schools and such general education that it is sustained cheerfully by public sentiment. Although it is much to be desired that the educators be. better paid and that tho educational standard be raised wherever that is possible, the system must be regarded as in every way preferable to the mixed and complicated system of our English neighbors. SPANISH BOMBAST. Official dispatches from Commodore, now Rear Admiral, Dewey, awaited with a great deal of anxiety after the meagre reports of the Manila-battle, had been received, ; were given to the public last Saturday and fully confirm the report of a wonderful victory gained by our fleet. The destruction of the Spanish fleet and the forts adjacent to Manila, seems to have been even more complete than was first given out. Not an American ship was seriously damaged, not an American seriously h u r t ! It was only a short time before that the Spanish Gover- of the Philippine Islands issued a grandiloquent address to the people there still loyal to the Spanish government, in which he said of Dewey's fleet: - " Herstjti.idron, manned by.loreigners, possessing neither instruction nor discipline, is preparing to come to this archipelago with ruffianly intention, robbing us of all that means life, honor, and liberty, and pretending to be inspired by a courage oif which they nrc incapable. - " American seamen undertake as an enterprise capable of realization the substitution of Protestantism for the Catholic religion, to treat yon as tnbes refractory to civilization, to take possession of your riches as ifthcv were unacquainted with the rights of property," to kidnap those persons they consider useful to man their ships or to be exploited m agricultural and industrial labor. "Vain designs, ridiculous boastings! Your indomitable bravery will suffice to Irustratc the realization of their designs. Yon will not allow tile faith yon profess to be made a mockerv or impious hands to be placed on the temple of the Irne God, the images yon adore thrown down by unbelief." In the light of subsequent events in Manila Bay, where the superb bravery and discipline of the Americans were displayed, as was also their magnanimous treatment of defeated foes, how puerile and weak the manifesto appears. How woise than weak, also, especially in this land of broad liberality in religious matters, appear the foolish sayings of the Governor in reference to religion. The most picturesque command in the army of invasion of Cuba will be Theodore Roosevelt's rough riders. Notwithstanding the conglomeration of swell society men from the cities, cattlemen from tho plains and athletes from the colleges, there ·will be few bodies of men, of equal number, in the army who will do . belter service for their country than they. They are dead shots and born fighters. The campaign for the Republican nomination for Governor is on in dead earnest in Pennsylvania, between Col. William A. Stone, supposed to have the Quay forces behind h i m , and ex-Post muster General John Wanamaker, backed by better-methods Republicans. Each is making a tour of the State, and the personal references to each other, in the speeches, are quite caustic. EDITORIAL NOTES. Major John M. Burke, in reply to the question, "Is Cuba worth fighting for?" says: "Commercially, yes, on account of its p r o x i m i t y to the United States, being as near to our continent as Philadelphia is to New York. It runs about seven h u n - dred miles in length and in parts is one hundred and fifty miles wide. There is no doubt but what it is tho richest spot of earth oil the globe. Tim strategic i m p o r t a n c e of Cuba has been recognized by all our Secretaries of State, and public men of foresight since t h e establishment nf our government, and while con- t i n e n t a l Europe may kick at the Monroe doctrine it has only been the Monroe doctrine t h a t has prevented t h i s nation overlooking its own welfare and uot appropriating Cuba long ago. Practical politics and common sense would have acquired it years and years cone by. The island has had about a million and a half inhabitants, but it is capable of sustaining ten millions, from its n a t u r a l resources, who have become patrons of our m a n u f a c t u r e r s . At the present time it is estimated to be worth $300,000,000 to us, as its trade is over $150,000,000 a year when promptly handled. The American flag 1 , without regard to the hands it is in, is a b o u t the worse t h i n g to tackle in these daj's. The small boy, with a d i m i n u - tive flag pinned on his jacket, will defend it from insult with all his might and main. And the men, as recently shown in a California town, compel those otherwise inclined to respect it. After m a u l i n g an Englishman who said the flag was "no good, anyway," the California defender compelled the Britisher to go down on his knees and kiss the flag The general opinion among the Kent county peach growers, says the Weics, is that the peach up to tliistim is .ill right. It is wonderful how much the peach can can stand for it was the universal fear that the ice and cold of the past month would surely kill them. Nevertheless they are still hanging on and in large quantities. The fact that they are yet on the trees is very encouraging. However when the warm suns come they may possibly be found dead and all drop off. The sweeping naval victory in Manila bay resulted from energetic and well-directed movements on'tlie part of war vessels and superb gunnery. . With Commodore Dewey to direct the movements of the fleet and our boys in blue to point the g u n s "there'll be a hot time" for any craft flying the Spanish flag that comes within range of our big guns. The rising price of wheat and flour brings to the notice of housekeepers tho excellence of corn meal as a palatable article of food and as a destroyer of dyspepsia. It is urged that it is more digestible and more sustaining than wheateu bread. Perhaps it will be more extensively used when the price moves up to the two dollar mark. The Monroe Doctrine seems likely to get a lively shaking up in all its parts by the war now on between Spain and this country. The necessities of waifare will force us to "interfere" with Spanish colonies whose independence has not been recognized by the United States. Senator Edelen, who died one day last week at La Plata, Charles county, was one of the most prominent and useful member of the Maryland Legislature some years ago, and many people throughout the State deeply regret his death. Now that wheat prices have reached such interesting figures it is very Comforting to know that the acreage to be harvested this year is nearly sis per cent, greater than that of last year. Wo are justly proud of our judiciary, and believe that it has not a peer either in or out of the State.-- Gentremlle Observer. "It is the Hest on E«rtli."

Hard work to push a wagon up hill. There must be f r e q u e n t pauses; and wheels are scotched to hold the progress made. Carpels have been marketed at a loss. A few months ago pi ices were advanced--part way toward profit. They are not up the hill yet. But, trouble. Production ran ahead of calculation. A quick marketing of some thousands of yards can alone p r e v e n t a serious break. We could be depended upon to bring about the result most quickly. Hence-THE MOST DECISIVE BARGAINS YET tire a n n o u n c e d here now. It is the scotch to hold the wheels on the Hill. It is youropportunity--if you can pet to Philadelphia speedily. Add to these facts the following detail as to prices and soits. It is A Very Great Carpet Sale 10,880 yards, 47 styles of Wilton and Ifxtra Velvet Carpets-best qualities; all new this season. SI.25 to 81.40 grades, all at SI. f),G25 yards, 22 styles of the next grade Velvet Carpets, well assorted, larn;e figures and small. 81 kind at 75c. 13,000'yards, 45 styles of A x m i n - ster and Moquette Carpets, all brand new, m a n y with borders --a collection from which any room of almost any house can be b e a u t i f u l l y covered.

Plain fabrics--coverts,Venetians, poplins, whipcords, and the like, are in great demand this year by women of tine taste. But plain :o6ds call for a care in the buying. He sure, first of all, of the quality --therein lies the beauty. Very low pi iced dress goods have their uses, but avoid them in plain weaves. This group will give safe a n J good selection-Plain color Poplins, 51 to SI 75 Mixed co'.or Poplins, SI 23 to Sl.oO Oivcit Clutlis, SI to Si.7o Wliipcoid Coverts, S1.2j to SI.73 There will be need for dresses of lather rougher sveave, for o u t i n g at least; many will choose them for all wear. So here are the Cheviots !iul .Serges. 75c to 81.75, and f a n c y weaves from 37j^c. BLAC GOODS--High in favor, fair in price, and a gooJ black dress is us.efiil till the last of it is gone. Fashion and popular favor center on clacks this year. All-siik Grenadines start at 37£c. All-wool Challis, 31c to S1.23 All-wool Utaniines, 23c to S1.23 Pl.iin Moliairs, 2Sc to SI. Silk-and-wool Hernanis, SI.25 to S3. Summer Series, 23: to S1.23. Princess AN explanation. The M-iv other clay we said that r-i« oc we ' d sold 5 9 2 L P airs UIOVCS of t h e Princess May Gloves in a week. That's exact. But it wasn't the biggest week's selling. That's the gait they're going at now. At Christmas times we sold 10,000 in a week. We should twice double present sales, for these are Real Kidskin Gloves at One Dollar All colors; black and white; button or clasp. And they are made by the best glove maker France has. Ninety Thousand Dollars' Worth of New Shoes The shoes--spring and summer sorts--deserve a special reception. They have it. Shoes are no more prosaic than is m i l l i n e r y -- f o r there are at least seventy-five entirely new styles shown here n o w . . The ultra-fashionable shoe for women is mannish. The modish shoe for men is low cut. This is more than a usual shoe store, for our foot care starts with designing right shoes, gathering proper leather and watching the m a k i n p at every stage. The shoe business hasn't centered here by chance. We sold upwards of a million pairs last year because we deserved to sell them. Judged by ruling shoe values--and we have submitted the more promising shoes from the other stores to the analysis of the k n i f e to know their structure --it is safe to say that in shoes from $2 to $6 a pair we effect for you a clear economy of $1 to $2 a pair. Such a business makes possible values like this-2100 Pairs Women's S4 and $5 Kidskin Boots at $3. Button and lace, tipped with patent leather. Bull-dog, opera and coin toes; seven widths; all lengths. These shoes were to fetch S* and $5--thousands of pairs like them did fetch those prices. But these in addition to our regular stocks, and out they go. $3. John Wanamaker. LTnder and by virtue of power nnd authority contained in a deed of trust from Martin J. Cohcc to Henry R.
