A good shower of rain put an end to the drouth in some sections of the county on Sunday last. On Tues- clay another and more widespread rain fell, doing much good.

On Monday last the dork-treasurer mand.inr.iR case from tins county was arcrncd iu C e n t r o v i l l e before :i f u l l bench. Mr. A G. Towers, ropio- sentimr t h t (·oiuniis ! ;ont i r;. a n d Mr. llonrj R. Lewis a p p e a ' i n g for Treasurer W h i t b y . Thu ca?f" grew out of a l a w , i n t r o d u c e d by Senator Messi'-'k, and passed by tin* last Tjogi^hi- tu:c, defining t h e d u t i e s of clerk to the ijominissiouers and limiting his pay. This law was part of the suheuio to divide Mr. W h i t b y ' s salary with a R c p n b h a a n , which .scheme was exposed and f i u s t r a t o d by Delegate Hcddon in tho House. By tho provisions of this act tho clerk was to receive a salary not to exceed' $800, and he was to receive no extra compensation whatsoever, while under the treasury law tho clerk received, in addition to his salary, fees aggregating possibly $200 for the assess- m e n t of personalty, w h i c h w.-is inado one of his duties. Necessarily this work was performed by persons other than tho clerk and treasurer, whoso dual duties made it impossible for him to drive all over the county and assess improvements and extra property. This work was consequently delegated ro others who received tho pay for it. Under the new law, as the commissioners interpreted it, Mr. W h i t b y must pay 'or this work out of his salary, while hoy did not propose to pay him any salary as clerk, as the law provides. This is the strange part of it, and he part to which Mr. Whitby ob- oetod. The court decided t h a t t h e rensurer must act as clerk, but that ho commissioners must pay him for uch services, thus, sustaining Mr. iVbitby's contention. He entered ipon his duties Tuesday. The county commissioners again all upon the court. This time the "udgos aro asked to say whether the icrsonal property, which is now in his county, of William J. Downing, * resident of Wicomico, is subject o taxation in Caroline. The. com- uissioiicrs of Wicomico have this amc property valued and assessed here to Mr. D o w n i n g , aud he has ong ago paid tho taxes levied t.liero- on, aud, through his counsel, Dew- neso Owens, claims that Wicomico is the proper county in which tho property should bo assessed, it not being permanently located in any other county or city of this State. Tho act of 1S% provides that "personal property belonging to a resilient of this State shall be -valued and assessed to the owner thereof in the assessment district in which said owner may re.sidc. except goods and chattels p e r m a n e n t l y located in any city or county of this State w h i c h shall bo valued and assessed to the o w a a r thereof in tho city or c o u n t y n which thoy are so located." The commissioners of Caroline claim that this property is from a legal standpoint permanently located in this county, for tho reason t h a t it has been here about all tho time for tho past two years. They claim also that Mr. Downing is using the pubic roads of Caroline, and that that is an additional reason why ",he should help bear the expense of \copiiig them in repair. It should be stated in fairness to Mr. Downing that ho is perfectly willing to »ay the taxes iu Caroline, and would rather do so if it is in accordance with the present tax laws, but he does not want to pay iu two counties on the same property, and that the tax must be paid in Wicomico--if the court shall so decide--is no fault of his, but of the Legislature .that passed the law. I'ublic School Now rt. The school commissioners held a. busy session on Tuesday last. Tho following appointments wore confirmed : E. J. Nelson, principal at Fcderalsburg ; Miss Lulu, Gullett, teacher at S m i t h v i l l e ; Miss Lclia J.

The official Sxvi-.d i.t tho Queen Anne's Ikiilm-ul Company is now interested in » s t u d y of specifications bearing u p o n ii:e construction of n new boat. N o t h i n g definite, however, ha? :ts yet been determined upon. There is very littlo likelihood of any change being made in the operating arrangements of the company this year. Tho rumored withdrawal of the Favorite and immediate substitution of another boat is doniod bo the company. President Bosley says that new boats, such as will meet the demands of that particular traffic, aro _ neither easy of purchase nor charter. In fact, it is difficult to discover a procurable boat which will in ovory'way answer the purposes required in service pn that line. What is actually needed can bo provided only by the construction of !i new craft designed in accordance with the company's ideas. It is that which the official board now has under consideration. Whatever may be t h e i r decision, no new boat will be bought or built before next season.

Mr; Frank JlcShane, of the rog-u- ararmy"hospital corps, was in town his weok. He expects to go to 'orto Itico with the army now at iamp Algor. Mr. McShano receut- y-wrote a long letter to his sister t llidgely, describing camp life. peaking of tho soldiers' diversions, 10 says: "The boys have quite a deal of amusement. We have hree shows on the grounds which \re open day aud night, besides oth- r places to spend our money. The dace is crowded w i t h stands, and ·ou can buy anything you want, rom a pin up. Then ld-timo fakir, who wo havo tho allows 'throe alls to bo t h r o w n at his b l a c k face while ho has it placed in a wooden rame.

But he only man on the ground is he who has invented the idea of arranging all the noted Spaniards of the day .in a row and allowing the boys to knock their heads oil. For *live cents you have throe throws, and the boys spend their cash trying to do General Weyler up. They are as glad when they hit him as if he were in tho flesh, and are regarded as a kind of hero." Speaking of camp fare and accommodations, tho writer continues : "If you believe all you see in the papers you w i l l wonder how wo stand it. I never heard tell of such gross misrepresentation. One papor said a nurse was giving a sick man soap' l i n i m e n t . Another said that wo only had one tin cup and two plates to feed twenty men. 1 do not nui'so myself, for I have a very nieo position n,s acting steward and work in tho field dispensary, yol I know wo have good nurses, and that every man has good attention when ho 'is sick." Mr. McShanc thinks it. would bo n, fine t r i p for some of "tho Caroline people if they would visit Camp Algor. He bay? five dollars would cover the oxpcTn^-e of such a trip, and t h a t it would be enjoyed by those who never looked into cainp-lifu hfi it. c e r t a i n . The route is to W a s h i n g t o n d s y o u please, thence by electviccarsto Fall C h u r c h , where you aio o n l y u fa-v miles from the camp. It takes loss t h a n tv.'o hours to reach Baltimore f r o m the camp, and it can thus be seen how much time Ilio traveler would h a v e among tho soldiers iC ho loft Baltimore early. i M g i i ; , v t i d t ' i i i i e d to t h e i r homes H i L l i tin- ipaiizalion of a day of rpcroatioii iimlfi- d e l i g h t f u l influences.

Senator Wellington has openly declared himself an anti-imperialist, while Senator Gorman is just as warmly in favor of an [ extension of territory. The position t a k e n by Mr. Wellington had, it id believed, much to do with his defeat ill tho meeting of the State Cential Committee. It is not likely that history will repeat itself _ia the case of Senator Gorman, inasmuch as he will uot afford those who oppose his views an o p p o r t u n i t y to knock him out. Instead he proposes to bring all the party leaders together and feel the pulse of his constituency. Not until after the meeting of the State C o m m i t t e e will the Democrats make known their candi- datesf or Congress. John Walter Smith has still u n d e r consideration the proposition to run iu the Fifbt district. He will announce, his decision, it is said, at tho coming meeting. In the Second district the names of Es-Cougressmau Talbott. Dr. Heriug aud John Wirt are mentioned. Mr. Talbott will probably carry his county, but his chances of capturiug the nomination are de- c i d e d l y slim. Either Dr. Bering or Mr. W i r t can w i n out, if either will accept. Some life has boon injected into the contest in the First district by the a n n o u n c e m e n t that Wilbur F. Jackson would not decline the n o m i n a t i o n . Mr. Jackson has uot yet formally declared himself, bill his friends believe he can ' m a k e it interesting for Dr. Barber. The Doctor, by the way, does not ap- poai to be alarmed. A correspondent of the Sun writing from Ocean City, s.ij-h. It is be- li-.'vuii now t h a t the D e m o c r a t i c c a n d i d a t e will be taken from one of the I'ountios south of the Choptauk. There are t h r e e uieu more talked f i b o u t iu this c o n u o c t i o n t h a u a u y other three, but not one of t h e m has declaiod, nor evou acknowledged, a candidacy. These aro John Walter Smith, of Worcester, William F. Applegarth,of Dorchester, and James E. Ellegood, of Wicomico. Democrats generally, as one meets them down hero, believe that any one of these three gentlemen would be elected unless he assented to a-"fool platform." Messrs. Smith and Applegarth are State Senators, the latter a hold-over from a doubtful county. This, however, would not alfect his nomination, as he could easily carry the county for a- Democratic successor to himself. Several a s t u t e politicians claim that Applegarth is 1 the strongest possible man that could be nominated. It is known that Joshua W. Miles does not want the nomination, aud that Somerset county will not ask for it. It is probable that Caroline will send a delegation to the congressional convention for Mr. Bates.Stephens, tho present school executive officer of the county and a most worthy man. It is said that neither Kent, Queen Anne's nor Talbot will present candidates. Kent would sond a delegation for Harrison W. Vicke r b i f h o wonld^iave it so, and so would Queen Anne's for Philemon E. Hopper under the same circumstances, but they will not, it is said. It is known that ex-Senator Chas. H. Gibson would take kindly to a nomination again, and would prissa it highly if his county should bring up his name, but his friends in Talbot are hardly in a position to do this for h i m . According to the Itoltimore News, lion. Lloyd Wilkinson will not bo a candidate for the Domoerfttic Congressional nomination if "Colonol John Walter Smith consent:; to r u n , but will favor tho Colonol. Iu case Colonol Smith declines, then he will c u t e r the contest with all his energy and ho expressed confidence in his ability to win the n o m i n a t i o n . Other p r o m i n e n t candidates for t h e Democratic nomination iti thn Eastern Shoiu district, says the -Yiir.s, are State Sonator Applegarth of Dor- chestei. Mr. Henry IE. Lewis and Ex-State Senator Thomas A. S m i t h , of Caroline. The desire of the leaders is to h a v e the n o m i n a t i o n made w i t h o u t a contest, and should Colone! S m i t h decline in advance, Mr. Wilkinson's f r i e n d s hope to bo able to get the others to w i t h d r a w so that. ho can be nominated by a u n a n i - mous vote. · Tho JOURNAL, only $1 a year.

The Third Reformed Church, corner o£ Saratoga ind streets, has been tendered for the purpose. The committee has arranged a program, the o u t l i n e of which is as follows: "The Field: tho Seed; the Sowers; the Sowing: the Harvest." Kohoboth's now M. E. church will bo dedicated on July 31.

The only thing which betokened tho least disturbance was a little cloud just visible above the naval horizon, the sullen rumblings which accompanied it proclaiming t h a t Admiral Sampson was on his ear because the army wouldn't let him scoop in all tho credit for the surrender of Santiago, together with the prizes in the harbor. There is no telling to what proportions this little thunder-head [or swelled head] m i g h t have attained had it not been side-tracked at Washington. The President stopped the foolish Admiral's pouting by peremptorily ordering him to furnish a convoy for tho Porto Rico expedition, which he had delayed two or three days. Gen- eial Garcia, tho Cuban leader, is reported to have resigned because he was uot allowed to occupy Santiago. Col. .T:u'khOii Will Kan. Col. Wilbur F. Jacksou, of Castle Haven, Dorchester, says he will accept the Republican nomination for Congress if thn convention which meets at Ocean City on September 15th tenders it to him. He says: "I will uot announce myself as a candidate for Congress, although I have been urged to do so by a number of political frieuds. 1 will, however, accept the nomination if my frieuds insist upon bringing me forward and I will muke the condition that I run as an unpledged candidate, free from all factions. My course on the penitentiary board has been indorsed by a large number of people of Dorchester, who are anxious for me to go to Congress. I would not bo averse to it if I can go in the manner I mentioned. Offlccru Installed. Officers of Caroline Council, No. 175, Jr. 0. U. A. M., were installed Monday evening as follows: Councilor, H.
