MELVIN, STEELE A. JOHNSON. E D I T O R S A N D P R O P R I E T O R S . SATURDAY MORNING, JUNE: 11, 1898. THE SILVER FLAG IS FLYING- It is claimed by some Democrats of the class that sets tho party utterances at n a u g h t , that the b i l \ e i question is dead. They might have more t r u t h f u l l y said they would be ple;ised if it wcre'dead; but it is not On the contrary, it w:is never more thoroughly alive, and not within the past four or five years has moie encouragement been given - i t than within the past two weeks, when a liberal n u m b e r of Republican Sena tois voted w i t h the Democrats to coin the s,eiariiioiago in t h e govern incut vaults. They t l i u s recognize tho place of silver in t l i p c o i n mouey of the country, and tho equity of the existing ratio of sixteen to one. It has not been dcmonstiated that the granting of the same privilege of coinage to silver that is accorded to gold would not do for the conn try in a commercial way, all that the most enthusiastic advocate of the w h i t e metal claimed it would do The occasion was never greater than at the present to test the matter. With w h e a t dropping 1 back toward the farmers' price a year ago--it is now below a dollar per bushel--the need of more money for cirenlaliou is conclusively shown. Unless it is soon shown that the government operations can be better done than they have been under a pronounced gold standard policy; that by it commercial enterprises will be more prosperous, by reason of better home patronage and increased foreign markets, and that by it the people will be nearer the position they occupied t w e n t y years : ^ i , silver will beanissueof paramount importance at the coming congressional elections. That much it can not do now. The conditions are more unfavorable than they wouil li.-ive been if war hud not somewhat curtailed OIH foreign trade. Silver w i l l be an issue u n t i l it has had its opportunity to demonstrate what millions of increase in the coin money of I he couii- tiy will do toward tho" prosperity of the people. Whatever emergen6ies of war may demand the settled policy of the Democratic party ;it large is to stick to the principles enunciated by the last national convention until they triumph, as they must, and dethrone the plutocracy of m i l - lionaires who too much dictate the legislation of this' democratic government. The banner has not been furled; and the candidate for Congress from this district, whoever the .Democrats may choose to bear it, will bear it to victory in November. HOBSON'S HEROISM. The American people appreciate courage of the kind displayed by the impetuous Dewey, and the captains of the vessels which went into the Manila fight with even chances of victory; but the daring of more than one body of men who have volunteered, in the face of almost certain death, to cut cables and do other work of like stragetic importance, awakens an enthusiasm that approaches reverence. It is not strange, then, that the country_is aflame with admiration for Hobson's heroism. Whether it accomplish or not the purpose intended, the facts remain that eight men undertook of their own free will, the hazardous task of blocking the channel to the Santiago de Cnba harbor by sinking in it a large ship, with the chances of being blown to atoms by the batteries that hedged them in on either side, without a gnu to respond with, or by the submarine mines in the channel, or the alternative of falling into the hands of a vengeful and unscrupulous foe, who was regarded as indifferent to -the amenities of civilized warfare. To the credit of the Spanish commander bff it said, however, that he recognized the' bravery of the mea and forbore -firing upon them, while helpless in the water, but instead picked them up nnder a flag of truce, and their exchange is being negotiated. Hobson is the hero of the hour. There is room for appreciation aud substantial recognition of the great things the heroes embryo of army or navy may accomplish in the struggle that will sharp from now on, and bids fair to be of short duration. CANDIDATES IN THE FIRST DISTRICT. At the gathering o£ Democratic editors in Baltimore last Tuesday the political outlook was discussed, and tho opinion was general that there are bright prospects for Democratic congressional candidates this year. They were confident that the Democrats would win in the First. There were many available men mentioned. At least tlvo counties, those present stated, would present candidates. Kent countians may ask for H. W. Vickers, Win. M. Slay, or Ex-Judgo J. A. Wickes; Queen Anne's, Dr. R. 31. Price or P. B. Hopper; Talbot, Ex-Comptroller J. Frank Turner; Dorchester, Senator W. F. Applegarth; Worcester, Lloyd Wilkinson; Wicomicc, Ex-Governor Jackson, and it may be that Senator John Walter Smith will become a candidate. He Las hosts of friends, and it is said many of the others mentioned would not oppose him. We have not heard ·whether Caroline will again seek the nomination this year. For many, many years we have sought it in vain, although our claims on the party of the Shore have been acknowledged as just by all the coun-i ties'. Some time ago wo published" N f c W S P A P L R f l R C H I V E ® ,, :i hihtoi-y of C-irolinc'b only Cougrcss- iHiiii. lie was, as the history tells IKS, a good ami f a i t h f u l i c'probCiit:i- tivc nnd an honor to bis State anc county.

Tho national convention of the Christian Endeavor Society will be held iu Nashville, Tcnn., J u l y 6th to ILth. The Maryland delegation wil leave July 4th at noon. Among tho interesting places w i t h i n easy reach of Nashville, and which thousands ot the endeavorers will likely visil before they return, are Asheville Chattanooga, Lookout Mountain Clitckamauga Park, The Hoi-milage. JMissiormi-y Ridgo, Belle Stock Farm, and the National Cemetery. Under the new oath the person to bo sworn holds up his right hunt and the following i's propounded to him: "In the presence of Almighty God I Oo solemnly promise or declare to tell the t r u t h , the whole t r u t l aud nothing but the truth." It is u n l a w f u l to add "So help me God,' which ended the old oath, or any imprecatory words whatever. #}.·'? fi\rft,t A good sum has been subscribed to defray the expenses of a Fourth of July celebration which is to bo hold in Deutou, and we hope the promoters will be assisted iu othoi ways, and t h a t the national anniversary may bo a notable one in Deuton. Let us manifest onr patriotism fittingly, aud all will be benefited thereby. In six weekb Spain has lobt two fighting fleets aud more than a score of valuable boats--and our navy is in better fighting trim than ever. Now if our army can keep this pace the w a r ought to be over before the s u m m e r ends. The pay of members of the Legislature over in Delaware is three h u n d r e d dollars per term of two years. Very few men are economical enough to get rich on that sort of a salary. Oohin's Acme Hull.
