Much interest lias bocu mauifestctl for several weeks in the outcome of a partisan effort to displace School Examiuer M. Bates Stephens, u h o Las faithfully filled the position ol executive officer of the public schools of Caroline county for twelve years. Mr. John T. Carter, Republican,was supported for the place, a petition having been circulated in his interest. School patrons generally ami the teachers of tho county, however, ·urged the commissioners to aslc Mr. Stephens to continue in the position. Tho board two yo.irs ago had appointed Mr. Stephens for a term ol four years, and after roergaimatiou on Tuesday last, on motion of Commissioner Fisher, Mr. Stephens' appointment was confirmed, President Thomas W. Jones and Mr. Fisher voting for him. Mr. "Stephens' term will end August 1st, 1000. Mr. II. ·Franklin Stevens, who ou Tuesday became a member of the board, succeeding Mr. Edward R. Goslin, opposed tbe continuance of Mr. Stephens. The commissioners appointed Miss Annie W. Stevenson, first .assistant: Miss Allie K. Higgins, second assistant, and Miss L. B.

Hiekey, of Baltimore, have been appointed referees in bankruptcy for the State of Maryland by Judge Morris, of the United States Circuit Court. Mr. Brinton says : The new law supersedes all State insolvency laws, in^ my opinion, and this point will probably ne deBnitely settled by Judge Morris, of the United Stntes District Court, at an early date. I think that all petitions in insolvency filed in tho Circuit Courts of. the State since July 1, when the new law was approved, will have to bo dismissed and new action taken bo- fore the ''referees. Proceedings instituted .in the Circuit Court prior to . July 1 will not be disturbed. The general desire. 'to abolish tho State insolvency laws, which fiud effect only in their respective States, was the reason for the enactment of the national bankruptcy laws. Heretofore a debtor who took advantage of the insolvency laws of Maryland was not freed from his creditor who resided in another State. The new law is; therefore, to the advantage of the debtor. It also minimizes tho fees and costs in insolveuey proceedings, prevents the assets from being eaten up by costly charges, Tin- I'lrsl I)i-v!rict Noiiilii.illons.

The Value of Camp-MociIujSH. · Tho season of camp-meetings is again upon us. Thoy torm a connecting link that holds us to a past ago with which we n o w uavelittloin common. Thoy oxi:=t non- rather as pleasant landmarks that our fathers sot up. Their practical value as aids in tlie active propagation of religious t r u t h is d o u b t f u l . The church does not require thife onco potent agency. Tlio camp-meeting, however, may still bo a valuable factor in society. The opportunity to enjoy ton days of invigorating ·camp life under proper moral discipline should not be lightly valued. People who tont at these camps would not otherwise got away from homo. They mako a fine healthy outing for overworked persons who need the change. Tho camp-meet ing has become a sort of church picnic where good morals and religious feelings prevail.--Et. Mr. H.' Hobbs. Clay Hobbs has about completed his canning-houso. His dwelling is finished, and ho will oc- '«npyVit^at the'end of .the present year. Mr. W.-B. Breeding is soon to erect a dwelling horc. Mr. T. F.

Dawson Larrimoro is August Wrntlior. Hicks, the weather piognostieator, never hit tho mark moro squarely than when ho warned us to look for extremely warm weather tit tlio opening of August. On or near tho 6th and 7th, be says, thoro will bo a reaction to storm conditions. From tho 11th to 15th is a regular storm period, during which many blnstoi- ing summer storms \vill be natural. We do not think that heavy and general rains are to bo oxpoctod in August. Look for reactionary storms about 18th and 19th. A n o t h e r regular storm period runs from tho 22th to tho '2fth. Look at that time fov extreme warmth, ouding in storms with t h u n d e r . m d w i n d . Much cooler nights -will follow. Tho 29th and 30th are reactionary storm centres-- warmer, with bluster and rnin. Ou Wednesday evening, at eight o'clock, Goldsboro M. E.

W h i l e tho General Assembly was in session m 1SU6 tho citixeus of Choptank petitioned that honorable body, through our representatives, Dr. Clark and Mr. Lewis, to pass a bill authorizing the Governor to appoint an additional Justice of the Peace for tho Fourth election district, to reside iu the town of Choptank, which it did (chapter 400 of tho Laws of 1890), aud Mr. J. T. Blades, a former representative of the Republican party, but then an acknowledged loader of a reform moveinout, was recommended aud appointed to that position. Ho held With credit to himself aud satisfaction to the c o m m u n i t y to the oud of his term, despite tho opposition of his competitor, w i t h his political alliance, who being also a member of theState Central CommitteeforCaro- Huo c o u n t y , b r o u g h t that position to boar upon an effort to prevent a con- t i n u a n c e of a justice of tho peace at Choptank, as will bo shown further on. At tho end of Mr. Blades' terra a petition of about all the voters of Cuoptunk and v i c i n i t y , regardless of political suutiuiout, was heut to the Governor, through registered mail, asking that he be reappointed. No attention being paid to tho matter Mr. Blades was urged to write tho Governor as to whether or not his commission had boon overlooked; to which he received the following roply. SCK, · ANN U'0i.ii Inimary JI. , ChopUiik, Mil. iiAli SIK:--In ruiHy'toyour IcUcr u f l l i u JUth inst , to the Governor, 1 nm thrcctcO to hay Dial the appointment of an rdJitionnl justice of Hie l.'oiirlh election district of Caroline comity Iins not licen overlooked, lut Ihc CSovcrnor lias been informed by a number of citizens of Caroline county thai an aililitioiial Justict is not ties;reel. Vtry Respectfully, KILHAKD DALL.OI, Sccrelaiy of Stnte. Wo believe wo an; in a position to know who tho "number of citizens" arc, and what interest tho3' had in f u r n i s h i n g the Governor w i t h that iufoi'Qintiou. Surely they are not eitizeus of tho community that would be directly benefited by au additional Justice. Then what ground has the Governor to refuse recognition of a recommendation of tho citizens who are directly affected? The attention of tho leaders ot the party has been frequently called to this neglect, with no avail whatever. Now we are a little sensitive to tho treatment received in this matter and shall lay tho charge where it bo- lougs, recognizing, as wo do, thro' what source all benefits to"this part of tho county have come. Our rights Lavo been ignored by tho very party who look to ns for political support. Now, if auy redress can bo had it will be made through the party whose influence coiucidcs with our public and personal interests. We are a u n i t in this matter and shall endeavor to mafcc it so appear at tho right time. Additional matter will bo exemplified through those columns, if necessary. MAXY CITIZENS. Thenc Arc Dog l)ny». Dogs days are now in their full force. The origin of these dog days is very antique, aud they carno about in this way. The great heat of July led to a superstition among Romans. They conceived that tho pre-eminent warmth aud the diseases and other calamities flowing from it were somehow connected with the rising and setting of tho star Canicula, or Little Dog Star, in coincidence with the suu. They accordingly conferred the uamo of dog days upon the period between the 3rd of July and the llth of August. So the twenty days immediately preceding and tho twenty days following the rising of the dog star, con- stitued tho dog days of the' Roman superstition. Their poot, Horace, even believed in this superstition. He makes allusion to it iu his address to the Blaudnsion Fountain, in which he remarks that the influence of the dog star has made the water warmer. But the scientific fact is that a spring necessarily preserves a moan heat all tho year around. The J u l y which closed last Sunday wus a record breaker, as far as records go, for its intense heat. A FINE ENCAMPMENT_AT CHILTON'S. Tin- K«-ll»;[ous Services--There ure Muny Vinltoi-s ut Till! Tl'nlH Chilton's camp, which has been going on this week, will close next Monday. About eighty families aro t e n t i n g on the ground, but the at- tondauee has. not boon so large as in former years. The meetings, how- over, have boon t u l l of interest, and many instructive and convincing sermons have been preached, Rev. A. D. Melviu, president of the Mary- laud Conference, who was present during tho first three days, preached two very able sermons--one Saturday evoniug and the other Sunday uioruiug. Rev. T. 0. Grouse pveach- ed Sunday afternoon and on Monday aud Tuesday. Suuday night, Rov. Louis Randall, ouo of the most promising young men of the church, occupied tho pulpit. Rev. J. F. Wooden, who preached Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, presented tho truth in a plain, straightforward m a n n e r , and on this his first visit has endeared himself to the people of Caroline. Rov. D. W. Anstiue, an ex-pastor of Caroline circuit, arrived Monday evening and will remain uutil this morning. Mr. Austine is deservedly popular at Chil- tou's, aud ho preached on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday with his usual ability. Rev. W. R. Graham, D. D., preached a very scholarly and instructive sermon Thursday afternoon, and will preach again tomorrow morning. Rev. G, Q. Bacchus, who preached Wednesday and Thursday, is also an ex-pastor of Caroline, and has attended every camp-meeting which has been held at Chiltou's in tho last fourteen years. He will preach tomorrow afternoon, aud the llev. LouisiRaudall will preach at night. Tlio Christian Endeavor service hold Thursday afternoon by Rev. C. E. Drydeu was very interesting, and no doubt awakened a deeper interest in the movement. He held up tho society in Denton as being in many respects a model one. Among the visitors at Chilton's this week wero the following : Miss Nora Moore, Miss Susie Moore, Miss Lillie Melvin, Mrs. Hattic Money, Mr. Albert Warren, Feltou; Mr. Howard Barrowclough, Chester, Pa.; Miss Mamie Vane, Miss Lizzie Freeman, Dover j Miss F.

Mooro, Mrs. J. E. Willis, Gfeeus- Tnolvi- Uiiili«'ln IV r Arr p State Entomologist, W. G. Johnson, says tho wheat yield of Mary- hind has been a ft notion moro than twolvo bushels por aero. This in comparison with tho average yield for ten years past, is about three- fourths of a crop. Tho average for the entire northern tier of counties, including Montgomery, 14 4-JO bushels per acre, while that of Washington, Frederick, Carroll, and Montgomery alono is 1C bushels. "Ou tho Eastern Shore, Cecil, Kent, Quceu Anne aud Talbot together yield ICi bushels. In the five counties south of Talbot the yield is slightly moro than Si bushols, while the four southern counties on this of the bay average 8 1-10 bushels. The average yield by counties is as follows: Washington loading with 17 Ta ,j bushels; Garrott, 12; Allegany, 13; Frederick, 16 2-16; Carroll, 13; Harford, 13i; Baltimore, 14J; Montgomery, 17: Howard, 12: Prince George, 10; Anne Arrundel, 8; Charles, 7i; St. Mary's, 7; Calvert, 8; Cecil, 17: Kent, 16 4-10; Quoen Anne, 16; Talbot, 16 C-10; Dorchester, 9 3-10; Wicomico, 7 3-10; Worcester, 10; Somerset, 7; Caroline, 9. "Tho shortage of the crop is duo to the Hessian fly, which was very abundant and destructive to the early sown wheat,- secondly, to the wet spring, accompanied with unusual cold weather in April; thirdly, to the drought, which prevailed during the latter part of May and June; and fourthly, to the attack of several fungus diseases, prominent among which wero rust, smut, and a new disorder known as septoria." Tlio Time to liuy Vent-lies. "It is perhaps not generally known that now is the time to buy peaches for canning, preserving, etc., from a standpoint of quality, as well as economy," remarked a commission merchant recently. "Georgia has the largest and handsomest crop in its history. The quality of the fruit is excellent, California had an exceedingly light supply ; practically none will come from Delaware ; there is a third of a crop in Pennsylvania and Western Maryland, and an insignificant one both in quantity and quality to come from New Jersey. Between fifty aud sixty cars of Georgia peaches are arriving daily, and at prices within a few cents of freight and packing charges. Orplmns' CoortOl'rococfllngK.
