The polls in each district will be open' from 1 o'clock to 6 o'clock, p. nt. By ordur STATE CENTRAL COMMITTEE. "PROSPERITY, AS WE HAVE IT. Prosperity--present, pronouiiced, an^ [all-pervading--is the almost daily claim of a portion of the metropolitan press in certain sections of the country, and the howl of the rural press, whose first, last aud only dnty appears to be defense of Republican legislation like the Dingtey law; and so grotesque are the claims made for it, a't times, that the presumption is fair that these said defenders would not kuow a tariff bill it' they met it coming down the road.' But we may-ask if we are prosperous; why we have what we have' of it; what brought it about, and what it has and will cost? If we view the matter from the standpoint of the government receipts and expenses, the answer is decidedly negative. The Bureau of Statistics at Washington gives out the statement of imports aud exports for the month of July- Compared with July of last year the imports show a decrease of $3,000,000 and the exports an increase of $1,000,000. By the same statement there is showp to have been a decrease of $129,585,309 of imports for the seven months of this year--January to August-- three-fif the of which must have been dutiable. At this time the needs of the government are extraordinary,as there must be added to the estimates of the Secretary of the Treasury "of $504,522,533.00, exclusive of the sink- iug fnnd, for the year ending J u n e 30, 1899, anywhere between $150,000,000 and $300,000,000 extra for the maintenance of the army and navy. Already there has been issued -''ou this'account $200,000,000 in interest- bearing bonds, aud a special tax has been laid on the business interests of the country that is claimed, by super enthusiastic Republicans, to- be severe enough to meet the expenses of the war. But that is an; other part of the story. If we take the manufacturing industries which have an intiiuate.cou- nection with war-making machinery, they are very prosperous, and there ia no need to say why they are sp. If we take the farmers of the mid-; die west, Nebraska, Kansas, etc., 1 whore pests and drought have des T troyed their crops year after.-year, the large crops of last year and this were Godsends to a burdened peo-; pie. They profited by the misfortunes of otfcer wheat-producing conntries and th« speculations iu wheat that brought it to a good' price, and they are therefore very prosperous, relatively. If we. take the southern farmers, whose .staple crop is eotton, we do not find -~them exulting over their prosperity, and the cotton factories have uot changed their last year's tale of woe. If we take the Marylaud farmers, especially in the part east of the Chesapeake, where they ace.accustomed to a fairly remunerative berry crop, plenty of peaches, nearly -twenty bushels of wheat per acre, aud so on, the almost total failure of them this year is not calculated to gire very roseate hue to their picture of" prosperity. ·' : - : Various causes other than' legislation have brought about the prosperous conditions which -prerail in sections of the country.^Legjslatioii, such as we've Lad,has beeBilling to the manufacturing interests of the country, so tar as their export trade is concerned, and not given them a boo*t*t borne. So far as can be now seen the proiperity outooming from Republican legislation is of very doubtful quality. It has succeeded admirably in its purpose to close our ports as far as practicable to foreign manufactures, and in a short while it will manifest signal ability to pile up the national debt by yearly deficiencies of revenue. What does it cost us to be culled prosperous? If we count the ante- war taxes of thB Dingley law; the war revenue taxes; interest on war bonds, and various other thiugs incidental thereto, this being prosperous, from a Republican standpoint, is very costly business to the people who are not strictly in it. AN ANCIENT RUSE. The Union resorts to a pretty ancient ruse this week to distract public attention from the fact that the tax rate has been raised 15i cents on the hundred dollars by the Republican board of Commissioners. In vulgar parlance tho Republican organ DM be«n yelling about Democratic profligacy for much the same purpose thatapumued culprit would point out some man ahead. The Republicans have heard the mutterings of a discontent that will be out- ·poktQ ft year hence. They have N f c W S P A P E R f l f l C H I V E ® »- . sown tho seed of a whirlwind, and they kuow it. It would bo nit-*' for them if they could so strongly impress the people with the iden that Democratic extravagance is at tho bottom of the increased rate that tlioy would not investigate a little for themselves. The plain fact is that the levy has been increased several thousands of dollars for ucw work like building auew Dover Bridge. It will be fouud iu the published estimates that $4,500 is appropriated for buildiug the bridge and the usual annual levy of $500 besides. Is it intended to repair tho bridge the sam« year it it built new, or is it intended to get, in a roundabout way, $5,000 to build itl It would have been morn pleasant for the commissioners iu the end, and more to their liking, we believe, if the organ of the Union Republican party had uot put them in the position of attempting to dodge the responsibility for liberality andpublic- spiritedness, instead of lauding them therefor, as it started out to do. Without fear of contradiction by any one or from any quarter, we make the statement that if the additions to the estimates for this year had not been made, the 15} cents increase in the tax rate need not have been made. The increase in the tax basis for the year will liquidate that part of the excess for whieh the Democratic board is responsible as well as that part of it accrued during the eight months of Republican control. The Democratic board is berated for not spending as much of the taxpayers' money as the publio needs demanded, and tho Republican board cannot get the credit for spending the money and not get the credit for increase ot taxes. CONDITIONS OF THE PROTOCOL. A peace agreement was reached by our government and Spain on Friday evening of last week, and M. Cauibou, the French Ambassador, represeutiug Spain, and Secretary of State Day, representing the United States, signed the important paper that evening. The conditions agreed to were the following: 1. Thitt Spain will relinquish all claim of sovereignty orer and title to Cuba. 2. That Porto Rico and other Spanish islands in the West Indies, anil an islaud in the Ladrones to be selected by tho United States shall be ceded to the latter. 3. That the United States will occupy and hold the city, bay and harbor of Manila pending the conclusion of the treaty of peace, which shall determine the control, disposition and .government of the Philippines. 4. That Cuba, Porto Rico, and other Spanish islands in the West Indies shall b»inTsf »di« toiy-«jact u at ed, and that ooamiKHOBera.'^o be appointed within ten days, shall, within thirty days of .th,« signing of the protoeol, meet at Havana and San Joan, respectively, to arrange and execute th*.detail«of the evacuation. ! 5. That the United States and, Spain will eaeh .appoint not more thau five commissioners to negotiate and conclude a treaty of peace! Toe 1 Commissioners are to meet at Paris not later than the 1st of-October. * \ After the signing of this paper each government sent notices to th« commanding generals to cease hostilities. Thus, as foretold by *very i one familiar with history and the! vastly superior power of our [country, euds our war ^ith Spain. The gift of prophecy was not needed to, tell in the beginning what the result would be. EPrrORtM.*NOTES.. The money-making instinct-is always keenly alive in the average American. It is at times obnox.iouslT obtrusive in its activity. If the scheme of national expansion prevails the schemers will come to the front with well-laid plans to relieve the government of its unneeded cash. The plan now is to enlist the government for the building of an addition to the navy larger than the present navy itself. There is no din- counting the achievements .of our BUT/ during the little brush with Spain; but it is doubtful if enthusiasm will run so high that public sentiment will sanction expenditures on * scale that would imply that we~ have the world to eonqner all at once. '' Don't fail to attend the Democratic primary elections to-day. Send good men and true to the county convention next Tuesday, and the same sort- of men to the Ocean City convention., A candidate for Congress can be and will be there selected who will carry- the district next fall by a handsome majority, whether his opponent be. Barber or Jackson. The Cuban troops, with a taste of Uncle Sam's rations, would like to go permanently into the service and pay of onr government. They are uot at all pleased that the war is over aud Cuba free from Spain's domination. The pursuits of. pence are distasteful to the dwellers of that beautiful isle. Senator Gorton, Democrat, and Senator Allison, Republican, were tendered appointment as Ameriean- Spanish peace commissioners, but declined. According to the New York World it cost $123,000,000 to take Santiago, and there were 1870 soldiers on onr side, killed and wounded. Dr. Barber had fnll control of the Republican convention at Easton on Tueiday last. Tho j . n . v i s i r ; , -· ' i - M I I , . :«·.. ; tor this, e n m i t y . ^ · ' ' I ' .
