M E L V I N , STEELE . J O H N S O N . EDITORS AND PHOPRIETORS. SATURDAY MORNING, JUNE 25, 1898. LOOK WELL TO THE STAMPS. It is of the utmost impoi-tanco to all persons who may have occasion to uso revenue stamps, us pi-ovided for by the law which, goes into effoct the first of July, to know tho d e n o m i n a - tion of the stamp required ou the various business papers, the minutia- of using them, as well ;is the penalty for neglect to HM: tliuni w : th intent to evade the law, and tho effect such neglect has upon the in- btrunient's legality. The person who uses a biink check, gives ;i note, makes a lease or power of attorney- iniibt affix n stamp and write thereon the date of execution and his initial.^. Tho law provides t h a t any person who shall fail to aflix a stamp lo a paper in the taxable classification "with intont to evade the provisions of this act shall bo deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and upon conviction shall be fined not exceeding $50, or be imprisoned not exceeding six months, or both." Of course, conviction of intent to evade the law Â·would be a very difficult matter, but the way is open for the maliciously disposed to aunoy any one who unwittingly omits the stamp, by having them arraigned before a United States Commissioner for judicial bearing, and in the absence of conviction there will remain heavy fees for the arraigned to pay. Too much care cannot be exercised in regard to properly stamping legal instruments, as their binding effect will -be dependent thereupon. In the language of the statute "such instrument, document or paper not being stamped according to law shall be deemed invalid and ot 110 effect." The Maiquis of Landsdowno,Great Britain's Secretary of War, is a strong advocate of the proposed al- ii.nice between his c o u u t i y and the United States. "Depend upon it," taidLord Landsdowne in conclusion, "those aio no mere idle dreams or hazy aspirations. The change which has come over the sentiment of each country toward the other during the last year or two is immeasurable. One can scarcely believe they are the same United States with whom, only two years ago, we were on tho verge of a serious quarrel." The Secretary says a wonderful change of seutiiueut has taken place in both countries in the past few years and the great English-speaking nations aro closer together than ever before. How little it takes to make a great newspaper froth at the mouth, fig- niatii'uly speaking. The red rag ot t h e New York Sim, just at this time, is Colonel William Jennings Bryan in his new uuifortn. In the estimation of the Sun, it is bad taste for Hie colonel of voliintoei's to wear his uniform at- a public function pthcr than a dress parade. It is probable that the enthusiastic reception given Colonel Bryan by the people, wherever he goes, has more to do with raisins: the choler of the Sun than has tho time and manner of wearing his uniform- "With its issue of last Thursday the Centrevillo Observer entered upon the thirty-fifth year of its existence. The Observer may well be proud of its position among the weekly journals of the State. It is at the top of tho pot. May its years be many and its labors fo'r Democracy abundantly rewarded. J. Polk Racine, an Eastern Shore writer, has written a, novel, entitled "Violet Miller, a Gambler's Daughter ; or the Terrible Murders of Cat The wise thing for every person in I Swamp." Its title, if nothing else. business to do, or for that matter, every person who may have occasion to use a stamped paper, is to inform themselves fully as to the requirements of the stamp act, and then follow them to the letter. should attract attention to this book. TERRITORIAL EXPANSION. One of the f n t u t e questions of grave importance with which the people of this country will be confronted will be that of territorial expansion. This question in all probability will be a great party issue when the time for its consideration comes bet'oie the country. Mr. Samuel J. Tilden said many years ago: ""We have everywhere hitherto refused to enter into a. partnership in self-government with inferior or mixed races. I remember that twenty-one years ago there seemed to be danger that the spirit of territorial extension would lead some of the Democratic party to favor the absorption of Mexico and the incorporation of the populated portions of that country into our system. For the purpose of checking that tendency a declaration was prepared by a great statesman of that day, , and was made public, to the effect that to hold Mexico as a province would be contrary to the principles of our institutions and would tend to their subversion; and that the destinies of our great experiment in self-government could not be safely committed to the issue of a partnership in it with the 6,000,000 of the mixed races which formed three- quarters of the population of Mexico. I may add that, being consulted, I concurred in the measure." EDITORIAL NOTES. The result of the trifling tax of two cents on'each check will bo to lessen the use of checks in small transactions and reduce bank deposits, and for that reason the demand for actual money will be very much increased. The revenue from the stamp act will not offset the disadvantages and annoyances connected with its collection, and the borrowing of $200,000,000 from one class of citizens to pay to another doesn't make any more money in the country. Altogether, it looks like Congress had made a mess of pro' viding for the present urgent needs of the people, although the govern, ment mill is given a plenty of grist. At the dedicating of the Franktord bathhouse, on Monday, tho Ecu. J. Emory Byram launched his boom for Mayor of Philadelphia, and at the conclusion of his speech making announcement of his willingness to serve the people's interest iu the Mayor's chair, he leaped into, the swimming pool in full dress suit and silk hat, and swam around for half -an hour. Mr. By rain is no common man, and the sooner competitors in the mayoralty race "catch onto his curves," the better will be their . chances of getting in the swim with j the silk-hat-full-dress-suit swimming statesman. A bill has been reported in the Senate to aid in the construction of the Nicaragua canal. The government is to have a first lieu on all the property and guarantees tho payment of bonds and interest. The cost is limited to $150,000,000, and the work is to be completed within six years. It is announced in the newspapers that to guard against the confusion which might result from a failure to provide revenue stampsat the proper time the Treasury officials have authorized tbo use of postage stamps. It is said t h a t sand bars stretch so far out into the sea about Ocean City that a big war vessel could not come within eight miles of the place It i-j, therefore, in no danger of bombardment. NUMBER"^. Sailors are proverbially superstitious and there are also hosts of landsmen who regard with terror that sinister combination of figures which, written numerically, appears as "13." There is many a man who never went to sea who would not embark on any enterprise on the thirteenth day of the month, or sit down to a banquet at which there were only thirteen guests. All skippers are not superstitious, however, and the "13 hoodoo" has no terror for some of them. The captains of twenty of the transports which the government sent to Santiago refused to accept "No. 13" as the designation of their vessels, the government numbering the transports instead of retaining the names by which they had been known hitherto. The expedition sailed at daybreak from Tampa on J u n e 13, and it is significant that the twenty transports were numbered consecutively up to 12, when "13" was "skipped," and the next ship, the Goncho, having on board 1,300 troops, was designated No. 14. One bold captain was found, however, who belonged to a "Thirteen Club," and whose ship arrived at Tampa on the day the expedition sailed, tbo 13th. He applied for the unlucky number in defiance of the superstition. His ship reached Santiago without mishap, as far as kn'own, and he has demonstrated conclusively that "13" is neither any better or any worse, as far as the sailor is concerned, than auy other combination of figures. Notwithstanding this fact, he will probably be looked upon for the rest of his career at sea as a skipper who recklessly tempted fate, and superstitious jack tars will regard him as ouo who cannot escape Davy Jones' locker.--Ex. The regiment of Col. W. J. Bryan will be ordered to join ^ho Seventh army corps, under General Lee, as . soon as it is mustered into the service. ' Tt is not likely that tho regi- Â· ment will go to Porto Rico, but will - be thoroughly drilled and equipped for use in the main Cub.m invasion. If Spain wants peace let her talk to Uncle Sam--not to the powers.

PoIIUcnl l''rum /Ac H'rald, In tho counties matters aro in a quiescent state. There lias been absolutely no campaigning in either tlio Second or Fifth districts, where it is regarded as absolutely certain that Congressman Baker and Mudd will be ronoiuinatcd. The indications arc that Dr. Barber with ultimately win out in tho First district but just the samo Colonel M u l l i k i u is giving him much discomfort these warm days. The Colonel has always been a, power iu Talbot politics, and held uninterrupted sway u n t i l Dr. Barber undertook to wtc-st the sceptre from him. Since then there has been trouble, and now it is war to the knife. "Within the past week tho Colonel scored a point ou the Congressman, who is aftei pation- age, when by combining with the Democratic County Commissioner he secured thoappointments, all bntone, of the tax collectois for the county, the odd one being conceded to the Democrats. In order to make good his losses the Doctor may have to look to his friend, Collector Parlett, who has at his disposal 14 additional appointments allotted to him by the Government. It behooves Congressman Barber to keep a watchful eye on his county. Should he lose Talbot in the primalies he will bo at the mercy oE Colonel Mnllikin, who can then dictate terms. The feeling between tho factions is intensely bitter. IJoltiigly--Qucoiistowii.
