Altogether, t h e exports, notwithstanding the ^120,000,000 of foo'd stuffs which is added to them, show an iucroiise of but n few m i l lions, proving conclusively t h a t thu o.cport of mauufiiirlnied iirticles has not beon as hi«-li as in 1S97, a small part of which decrease may Ix 1 a! tiibuted to the war conditions of the Nie last two mouths of tlio n=ral year. The impoi-ts for thu year wore i-on- sidurably less than iu tho year LS!)7. So far as the figures can be separated from the war. expenses, the Uingley law fell f u l l y seventy millions of dollars short of providing revenue -·enough to r u n the government. Il is almost like striking a man when lie's down to review tho work of a measure wlueii promised so much of good and has accomplished .so l i t t l e . The intervening of war has so upset conditions that no o p p o r t u n i t y of .snowing just what it w i J l do can ?.be given for years to eoino, w h i c h ought to be regarded by ]\fr. .Dingley as'a direct intervention of Providence in his behalf--a suspension of sentence on his put mouhuio.

The Union has beo/i .it especial pains to discount the good sense, the intelligence and the Republicanism of Messrs. William H. Cabho, So mere Blake, Fraucis A. Porter, James C. Colliua and John W. Carroll for their recent appoint" ment of an overseer of the county- house. Tbeso men aro competent to select an overseer, who will be their officer, and no man in the county who is himself above such a potty deal, would impute such pettiness to Any one of them. Likewise, it is very likely that they knew personally and politically every applicant, for the position of overseer, and thu v appointment was made, wo believe, because Mr. Allabaud has beuu tried aijd is known to be a suitable man for'.the place. The trustees' have been cominended"for their appointment, and knowing themselves that it_was the right oue to make, they cannvell afford to' bo deaf to "the of the Union.

It is dated February 12th, 1896, and it is worded as follows: 1st--I direct that all my justs debts shall be paid ^d -- 1 leave thu balance of my es tatu, real, personal and mixed to m j wifo, Lydia Jane Colton. 3d--I make Lawrence V. Miller my solo execu tor, without bond." That is all, anc no doubt it is about as strong a wit as he could have written if he liae covered twenty pages of legal cap. Following is a correct list of Spanish war vessels which have been, t h u s far, "knocked out of time:' Cristobal Colon, Almirante, Oquendo, Vizcaya, Infanta Maria Teresa, P l n t o u , Furor, Reina Christina, Alphonso XIII., Don Juan de Austria, El Correo, Cuba, Espana, Isla de Luzon, Castilla, Isle de Cuba, Velasco, Isle de Mindanao, Antonio de Ulloa, Marquis de Duro, General Lezo, Villabolas, Guardiano and Reina Mercedes. And now Admiral Watson is after the balance of them. It is said the mines are to be taken from the Baltimore harbor .altogether. There is now no Spanish fleet to menace oar coast. Baltimore commission merchants aro quoted as saying that wheat will be higher in price as the summer advances- EDITORIAL NOTES. Iteports from Manila to the lhat the Gorman marines there are giving "aid and comfort" to the Spanish troops still continue, and only a day or two ago a German · cruisers crew at one of the island engaged in helping 1 a Spanish garriboii to fortify works. Two American boats caught the German in the act, and tho latter l e f t quickly, and, oi course, the Spanish gar rison succumbed to the inevitable, .and are now prisoners. This is a great country--great in tho skill and bravery of its soldiery and resources of wealth; in fact too great to allow too much interference iu blockaded ports where our uavy is iu control. We hope Germany is not looking for trouble and that she will be \vi = e iin'd attend more strictly to her own business. · The trial of United States Senator Richard R.

Tbe government closed its case on Thursday about noon and Senator Gray opened the case for defense. The remainder of tho day was spent iu arguing tho habeas corpus proto got Col. E. T.~ Cooper e% Jersey penitentiary, to- fi? a! iiE/i so O The Rev. Dr. Cort, formerly of Kidgoly, preached a Thanksgiving suntion iu the Reformed Church at Sabillasville, Frederick county, last Sunday morning. In the course of bis address he said: "And while we rejoice as American patriots in a eueral way we have special cause for congratulation as 'citizens of Maryland, and as members of the Reformed Church, to tbank the God of our fathers for.these great aehieve- ruentb. The heroic man who led our ttec-t to triumphant victory at Santiago was a native of our Common- w e a l t h , and was born in OUT own c o u n t y of Frederick. Ho was a l i n e a l descendant of tho loading member of our Reformed Church w h e n lirst visited and organized by Itev. Michael Schlatter, our pioneer missionary, one hundred a n d ' f i f t y years ago. In his published journal, page 147. it is recorded that on May ID, 1748, ho preached and administered the sacrament to a very devout Reformed congregation in Fredericktown, and adds: 'It is advantage to his congregation that they have the best schoolmaster tbat I have met in America. He spares neither labor nor pains in instructing the young and edifying 1 the congregation according to his ability by means of singing and reading the word of God and printed sermons on every Lord's day.' That faithful and worthy teacher of Reformed Church parochial schools was Thomas Schley, the ancestor of our naval hero, Commodore Sohley, and many othor distinguished persons. ·- He was from the Palatinate of the Rhine, and oame to America in 1740. One of his sons was a captain in the revolutionary army, one of his grandsons was Governor and Congressman from Jeorgia, another sat on the Supreme Bench of that State, and others were highly distinguished in the forum and the field. Dr. Cort then sketched the career of Spain as the butcher of live hundred Reformed Christians on the coast of Florida in 1565, as t l i e desolator of the homes of 100,000 Reformed Christians in the .Netherlands 300 years ago, and as the worst foe of civil and religious liberty. Persons troubled with diarrhtca will be interested in the experience of Mr. W. M. Bush, clerk -of Hotel Dorrance, Providence, R. I. He aayb: j'For several years I have been almost a constant sufferer from diarrhoaa, the frequent attacks com- plotoly prostrating me and rendering me unfit for my duties at this hotel. About two years ago a traveling salesman kindly gave me a small bottle of Chamberlain's Colic, (jholora and Diarrhoea Remedy. Much So my surprise and delight its uft'ucts were immediate. Whenever I felt symptoms of the disease I would fortify myself against the attack v.-ith a few doses of thjs valu- ciblo remedy. The result has been vcrj satisfactory and almost complete relief from the affliction." For sale by W. E. Brown, Deuton; Hugh Duffey, Hillsboro; R. J. Colston, Ridgely. "I have used Chamberlain's Cough Remedy in my family for years and always with good results," says Mr. W. B. Cooper, of El Rio, Cal. "For fcmall children w.e find it especially effective."

Our Jupe 30, DM You Read It? We told you that in going over stock we woiddfind some articles for the Counter We have completed our ivorli', and there are quite a number of articles that will be sold Our remnant pile at 5c a yard has been quite an attraction this week- Old price 8 to 15 c a yard- We have always marked part rolls and odd rolls very cheap in ]0 ftnd Sc these half-yearly · clearances, but many of the lots we tell of now-including those just mentioned--are in ample supply for any want. It's a queer condition that confronts carpet makers. Prices were forced up to the level of profit- making, but, before the harvest of cash was gathered, the market was over-filled, and then came trouble --and auction sales. There is profit today--for you. Money to be made--by spending. In two decades we haven't heard of prices so low. And it's an accident. And the condition cannot last. We shall sell the 46,000 yards almost before you've had time to think the matter over. Here is the memoranda of kinds and costs-Fine Savonnerie Axminster, thirty styles --including every newest one. SI. 65 when season started. Today, SI .a yard. Axmlnster Carpets, 23 styles--light and , dark colorings; including the newest on sale. Season's starting price, S1.25. Today, 70c. Saxony Axminsters and Moquettes, 40 styles. These are the most economical . middle-priced carpets at the early price --SI. Today they are 60c. Best grade Brussels, 23 styles, plenty of almost all; many with five-eighth borders; some stair styles, too. 03c instead ol SI. 25 and S1.33. "Extra" and Wilton Velvet, 30 styles. Started the season at Sl.40 and S1.50; settled to $1.25. Today, S5c. 1500 yards of best Wiltons--Bigclow Lo\wll and Whittnll.

Velvets, 70c and Sac from SI. 25. Tapestries, 30c and 35c from 50c. Tapestries, 35c and 40c from 60c. Tapestries, 45c and 50c from 75c. And quite a lot of ingrain carpets --rolls and less, and rugs and mat- tings and linoleums. Rodman Bicycles, $20-Manufacturers find it no trouble --except to their consciences--to produce wheels at whatever prices shall prove tempting to buyers. You alone decide. It is a bit puxzling, to be sure, when the air is haxy with bargain offerings. Puxzling, and not. You can skip the puzzle by resolutely shunning u n k n o w n wheels. You can safely skip all the apparently "doctored" w h e e l s -- m a d e from, conglomerate parts, or old wheels revamped. Safely skip, but you can't safely buy. Future seasons will find the air cleared. It will be decided by you --the public--whether it shall be cheap" wheels or safe ones! The answer could be guessed now. As yet, surely safe and high- grade wheels have not been made to sell, at today's prices. But selling goes on--at a toss--while the problem works out. Men's Linen Collars, 'A for 25c.
