M E L V I N , STEELE JOHNSON, EDITORS AND P R O P R I E T O R S . SATURDAY MORNING, JULY 2, 1898. A LITTLE MUDDLE. The Kopublicans made a pretty little imiddlo of their own d u r i n g tho last legislature, and they have been busy over MIICOlimiting for a scapegoat. They would be pleasuil to s:til- dlt; the bUiBe, il tliey could, u p o u some Uc-uiociat. A hille l i i M o i y of the m a t t e r will doubtlu.-,» bo oh iiitei.- tst. riubhcd \vith hi 1 v i e l o i y ;;t the polls, tboy t h o u g h t to auiko it ,ih neaily complete as possible by .the aid of a Republican legislature. The fivbt stop was to legislate away f i o m Mr. \Vhitbyapart oi t u u t a l a i y ol tho oliice to which lie had IJL uJiK-LtHl. That to bo f u i l u w u d by tiie appointment of a clcik to tue county comuiissiouci-b, «ho was to get the salary lopped off from Mr. Whitby's. Bills for both of those purposes, laudable and honorable as they weio, were put iuto (he legislative hopper. They went through the Senate without skip or break; but their course in the House was somewhat checkered. After being amended and passed the bill to divide the treasurer's salary and duties w e n t back to the Senate for concurrence, failing that to a conference committee for adjustment, aud back again to tho two branches for ratification of the conference report. Tho self-resyoctiug Kepublicans thought it about time they were taking- a hand in the game. And they did it with right good will. If it had not received a Democratic vote the Republican vote in the House would have defeated the report, and with the Democratic vote it was overwhelmingly defeated. The companion bill, to appoint a elcrkMo the commissioners, came along toward the end of tho session and was passed by the House with an admoiidment limiting tho compensation to eight hundred dollars per year. 'Then tho Republicans suddenly found out that they didn't want it to becomo a law, and a committee posted off to Annapolis to induce the Governor to withhold his signature, but too late, alas! It had been signed. Tho bill, however, did not specifically provide for the appointment of a clerk and the right of the county commissioners to appoint one, under its provisions, was in question. Recognizing the futility of the law to accomplish its purpose, the commissioners on Tuesday last, it is understood, determined to ignore the new clerk bill and allow IVIr. "Whitby to act as clerk, as per the provisions of the treasurer law, and at the compensation therein named. This has been Mr.TVhitby's position all along, * as we understand tho matter, to t.ike the office of treasurer and clerk to the county commissioners as it stood when he was elected to it, w i t h o u t abatement of or addition to his salary, and statements) to tho contrary may be taken with allowance. The Republicans naturally wished to let themselves out of an uuteud- ble position as easily and gracefully^ as possible. It would havo been more manly and generous, however, to have refrained from an attempt to place Mr. Whitby in a false position before the public. ^»»« OUR INDEPENDENCE ANNIVERSARY. One hundred and seventeen years ago, come Monday, the birth of a republic in the Western hemisphere was formally announced to the world. The test of the great charter of our independence, and how it was signed and promulgated, have since that time become history as familiar as nursery rhymes in'the households of the land, and tho spirit of independence, the love of liberty, which prompted our forefathers to cast off the yoke of kingly rule, and brave the hardships of an unequal war,has 'been and is to-day the proud heritage of every American. That has been demonstrated time and again, b u t v n e v e r , perhaps, more forcibly than at this present time, when thousands of the'flower of our youth are braving the scorching heat, the pestilences and epidemics, of a semitropical land, and the bullets of an ambushed foe, to relieve from the oppression of tyrannous rule an alien race. It is fitting that the brave deeds of dead and gone patriots be rehearsed and commemorated on the anniversary of our declaration of independence. It is fitting that the heroes like Dewey, 1 Hobson, Fish, and hundreds of others should have public commendation of their heroism. And it is more than fitting--a positive duty--to contrast upon such occasions the opportunites for as- · piring and industrious young men nnder a government like ours and under monarchal rule, where inhori- ·tanee of position is more common than position achieved by merit. The progress made by the United States of America in the century and nearly a-quarter past in soieuco, literature, commercial and industrial pursuits make a theme upon which orators will wax eloquent. The patriots of '70 builded a government, which has giown to be the greatest tho world has over seen. It has been the model which less courageous people havo faintly copied in the establishment of republican forms of government. Yet it stands to-day a beacon to them and an inspiring example of tho stability of government of the people, by Jhe people and for the people. Don't forget to put tho revenue stamp on your check and cancel with the date and your initials.. EDITORIAL NOTES. If the Republican administration of national affairs is to be given credit for the unusual yield of cereals last year--as is claimed by some newspapers with more party zeal t h a n personal discrimination--why b h o u l d it not also be held to account for a failure of crops? One is just as reasonable as the other, or rather, tlie one proposition is not more silly than theother. What a list of charges tho Eastern Shore farmers would j h a v e , under t h a t rule, against tho Republican administration! Beginning with laying the unremunera- t i v e u e s s o f the berry crops at its dooi, they might follow with the charge of next to a total failure of tho peach crop, a wheat crop less than one half the normal, and so on down to tho end of crops. And the rofeiilt would be a severe reckoning between the people and the careless administration. Thanks to reasonable natural endowments and education the crop of fools of this sort on the Eastern Shore is much shorter than the wheat crop. Some interesting figures about the increase in the navy on account of the war are to be found in the Register of the Navy issued July first. The regular navy is now composed of 11 ships of the first class, 18 of the second class, 43 of the third class, G of the fourth class, 12 tugs, 6 sailing vessels, 5 receiving ships, 12 unserviceable vessels, and 33 vessels of all other rates. The auxiliary navy is com posed of 36 cruisers and yachts, 32 steamers and colliers, 25 tugs, 15 revenue cutters, 4 lighthouse tenders aud 2 Fish Commission steamers, making a grand total of 270 regular and auxiliary vessels. This number will be augmented by the torpedo boats, battleships and monitor's now building and authorized. The revenue stamp is largely in evidence now, over two h u n d r e d millions of them having been already sent out by the governments Yet it may be possible that a would-be user could not find on'e at the moment of need. In that event, the Commissioner of Internal Revenue suggests a mode of proceeding to avoid penalties, to wit, that a memorandum be kept of the amount of stamps used aud pay the same to the Collector of Internal Revenue for the district. There would be danger, in the event of a check sent unstamped, that it would be returned to the maker, and thus cause delay and annoyance. It would be safer to get the stamp first aud make the check afterward. Annexation ought to have a black eye from the recent reports from the Philippines- The insurgents there are fighting for freedom, not for a changes of masters, and they seem to be pretty well able to gain it from the ISpanish government. America hashad her experience in establishing the right of self-government at the point of the sword, aud annexing an unwilling people ought to be altogether out of her line. It would bo taking a rebellion in hand to an' uox the Philippines, and Hawaii would be a dear piece of property if we have to pay her debts. The Bureau of Internal Revenue and the Bureau of Engraving aud Printing has been busy for the past week printing and sending out the now-internalrevenuestamps. Twenty millions of these stamps are sent out per day, and it is estimated that a sufficient quantity has been distributed to the collectors of internal revenue to meet the demand for the present. The country's opportunities for territorial expansion--if a policy of this sort should be thought of--are quite unusual, and there may be dangers ahead on this line of which wo little dream. In addition to the possibilities of holding 1 Cuba and the Philippines, the Republic of Liberia wants our protecting care. General Joseph Wheeler was one of the most dashing fighters in tie Confederate army, and although he is now over sixty-two years old, ht has lost none of the snap that then characterized him. Under his command the advance guard of General Skafter's army at Santiago will make it red-hot for the Dons. Increase in the county tax rate seems to be the order of the' d*y. In Talbot the increase is seven cents; in Cecil ten cents; in Dorchester the rate is increased, and in this county the increase is fifteen-and-a-quarter cents on the hundred dollars. The State Bar Association will meet at the Blue Mountain House on the 27th and 28th of July. An interesting program is being arranged. Attorney-General Griggs will be a guest of the Association. Cecil county Democrats on Tuesday last elected delegates favorable to Dr. Charles M. Ellis, candidate i'oi Congress. Our baby has been continually troubled with colic and cholera iu- f a u t u m since his birth, and all that wn could do for him did not seem to give more than temporary relief, until we tried Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. Since giving that remedy he has not been -troubled. We want to give you this testimonial as an evidence of our gratitude, not that you need it to advertise your meritorious remedy.--G.

There are 'several hundred Gorman Baptists in Caroline c o u n t y , and all o£ them have come here, from the north, in the past few years. On their forms and services the Ladies' Home Journal for July has "an interesting article, which wo append: lu quiet reveieuce, and devoid of all semblance of ostentation in either dress or conduct, the men aud women file slowly through their separate- doorways into the little meeting-house. It is a low, f r a m o building,fashioned after the simplest style of architecture. S h i n i n g through the small clear windows the sunlight sheds its pure and uu- tramtneled radiance within the iu- closure of this unpretentious c h u r c h , revealing in all its simplicity t h e bare, uncarpeted room with its rows of wooden benches, plain aud u n cushioned, and without the adornment of either paint on varnish. As the men enter they remove their broad-brimmed hats aud hang them on the nails that are placed in a row along the wall. The extreme plainness of their attire gives to them a certain uniformity of appearance, which is heightened by the further peculiarity that they all wear full beards, without mustaches, and part their long, flowing hair in the middle. With utmost q u i e t and solemnity they take their seats on tho right-hand side of the church many of them, however, first shaking hands and kissing one another in silent greeting. The women, who wear a particular style of headdress--a plain unadorned bonnet, covering the ou- tire head, and extending beyond the face--enter on the opposite side of the room, and taking off their bonnets and hanging them upon the wall, expose to view the prim, white caps that it is their custom to wear at all times. They too, salute one another'with a kiss, and demurely take their seats, w i t h o u t the interchange of a word. They sit quietly side'by side; their sweet, p u r e faces appearing almost saintlike'beneath the immaculate simplicity of their caps, which extend over, tho ears and are fastened w i l h a little white ribbon under the chin. Their attire presents even greater uniformity than that of the men, for not only is it of the most primitive fashion, without ornament or embellishment of any kind, but the dresses are all made after the same pattern, the distinguishing feature of which is a dainty kerchief, of tho same material as the dress, worn over tho shoulders, with the long points extending to the waist in the front and back. At the farther end of the room sit the ministers, four or five-in n u m b e r , at a long bare table, facing the congregation, while an equal number of deacons are seated on tho opposite side, with their backs to the room. There is no liturgy, no ritual, no formal mode of conducting 1 service. The worship of these men and women is in perfect accord with their humble lives and their beautiful, childlike faith; wholly w i t h o u t affectation or formality. So soon as ten or twenty persons have arrived one of the ministers starts the singing of a hymn, which is taken up by the little congregation, and, without instrumental accompaniment of any kind, is sung to its close, the gentle voices of the women blending sweetly and effectively with the deep, rugged tones of the men; aud while there may sometimes be a lack of correct technical execution, there is in this artless singing a certain indescribable spirit--a tender and touching soulfulness--that carries it beyond the pale of material criticism. In this munuer a considerable number of hymns are sung at sh'ort intervals'as tho congregation is assembling; and then, after a fervent prayer, during which every one reverently kneels, each of the ministers, in turn, delivers a short discourse or exhortation, based upon a text selected at random from the Bible. There is no discussion of theological subtleties nor of doctrines. These homely improvised sermons are but the spontaneous outpourings of heartfelt religious emotion; the ingenuous expression of ideas and feelings inspired by the devout, believing spirit that dominatesthelivesand thoughts of these people, who find their greatest joy in following the teachings of Christ, aud who accept the New Testament as their sole and supreme guide in all matteis, temporal and spiritual; whose creed is the Gospel and whose doctrine, from beginning to end, is Peace. These are the Dunkers, or German Baptists, as we find them to-day in the rural settlements of Lancaster county, in Pennsylvania. Thus it is that they hold their religious meetings, in the same fervent simple manner that characterizes theirevery-day mode of life. Among themselves they are known as the "Brethren," in signification of the fact that they are bound to one another by the same brotherly love and interests, the same fraternal feelings, that actuated the Apostles and the primitive Christians, whose meek and holy lives it is the aim of tbe Brethren to imitate so far as may be possible. The fraternity had its origin in Germany, in the early part of the eighteenth century, when eight good and pious men, dissatisfied with the pomp and vain formalities of the established churches, entered into a covenant to reject all spiritual authority beyond that contained in the New Testament. That they night be consecrated in their holy j purpose tliuy k'epauuil to tho iiivor Edor, aud were there buried w i t h Christ in baptism--each one bpiug immersed, or dipped, three times, in accordance with their uit'erpreta- tiou of the mode prescribed by the Gospel; a form of baptism w h i c h to this day constitutes one o£ the peculiarities of tbe religious practices of the Duukers, and upon which their n a m e is founded-being derived from the Gorman word lunken t meaning "to dip." Meetiug with m a n y persecutions in Europe this unobtrusive, peace- loving sect, whose only offense was a desire to return to tho primitive ways and beliefs of the early Christians, accepted the friendly invitation of William Penn to settle in his colony in the New world; and by the ycai 1720 the entire f r a t e r n i t y , w h i c h had increased in n u m b e r very r a p idly, f o u n d itself quietly settled in tho vicinity of German town, near Philadelphia. From this point the Dunkers gradually spread out into different sections of the country; but their most interesting bettlo- ments--those in which tho q u a i n t customs of p r i m i t i v e days have undergone but little change--are still in Pennsylvania, especially in the neighborhood of Lancaster, a c o u n t y rich in the traditions and remains of the many early religious scuts that found a welcome asylum in the retreat of Peun's Woods, where every man was free to worship God in accordance with the dictates -of his heart.
