NAL MELVIN, STEELE JOHNSON. EDITORS AND PRO PR IT. TO RS. SATURDAY MORNING.AUGUST 27,1898. DEMOCRATIC TICKET- FOR COXOBKSS: JOHN WALTER SMITH. Of ·WOKCESTKK COUNTY. OUR STANDARD-BEAERER. We place at tho head of our editorial columns this week the n a m e of the Democratic standard-bearer in the congressional campaign, in the First district, this year--John Walter Smith. The u n a n i m i t y with which the nomination was gi%-en to Mr. Smith is of itself a striking testimonial of the esteem in w h i c h he is held in every part of the district, and inspired by the vigor and system the candidate will put i n t o the campaign, personally, it may be expected that in every county of tho district will be inaugurated for him vigorous, systematic and winning campaign. The time is propitious for the return of this district to its normal position in the Democratic column. The services of a Republican in the lower house of Congress for a tingle term--marked by no evidence of statesmanship--has been quite enough for our people, and they will see to it that the majority of last year, handsome as it was, is not diminished. The battle-cry this year is for the mon«y of tho constitution, gold and silver, without discrimination against either, as money of final payment and redemption. In addition to this the record of the Republican party in the State and nation will be thoroughly discussed; and it is a record vulnerable at almost every point. Let the campaign be sharp from beginning to end, and the outcome will be all that the most ardent Democrat desires. AND WHAT DID THE UNION GET? We should scarcely be held to account for the Union editor's reading of oar article on county finances last week. It is perfectly apparent that it was intentionally misconstrued, for such dense ignorance as the confoundingof shortage andestimate cannot for a moment be entertained of the writer of the editorial hieroglyphics in the Union. The article sys the Republican board has made several reductions from former Democratic rules which paid the JOURNAL and company $700 a year for county printing. A reference to the published statement of county expenses for last year will show how true that statement is, as it appears therein th»t the JOURNAL was paid for that year, all told, $269.50. The editor unintentionally, of course,omit ted to pay that the Union received for the game year, for county printing, the sum of $463.99, nearly $200 more than did the JOURNAL We woi\W very willingly exchange places, if being on the outside of the bars means such an advantage pecuni- arily. Is not the proposed eoonomiz ing apparent when it is known that the present board has contracted with the Union to do the work for $300 that the JOURNAL did for .$325 per year; and the Courier is to have $200, under the new regime, for what it did for $100 under Democratic rule? We will name, for the benefit of the Union, some of the items of unusual expense last ye$ which were unprovided for:. A^ in crease of $1200 in regis.t,r,a,tKa and election expenses, of \$:aiqhthe Union got $373.25; sever.%^ hundred dollars increase in th$, i.tems, of, attorneys fees, assessment expends,, clerk of the circuit court,. i;oad; expenses etc.., {or d,eta.ija olj which, the report ol the county aucHtwrs must be consulted,. EDITORIAL MOTES. The political complexion of the Eastern shore is always "uncertain. The voters down there are very apt to jump over party lines and out party traces when they tbmk they have x i for doing so.--Baltimore American. On the contrary the complexion of this congressional district is nevei uncertain, under ordinay condj,ti,ons. It is regularly Democratic, and it will so remain. .T.b,e distributing of » barrel of money throughout the Eastern Shore and the wholesale corruption of the voters iaj.896 barely saved Congressman Barber. He oannot be induced to assume the risk of another election in the First district. Congressman Sydney E_ Mudd, for ton years one of the Republican leaders in Maryland, was on Tuesday renominated by the Fifth district Republicans. The district is the home of Senator Gorman. Congressman Isaac Barber, of the Eastern Shore district, Tuesday wi,vt»- drew as a candidate for Denomination. This is a great surprise to the Republicans. Colonel Wilbur F. Jackson will in all probability be tjbe ^Lepublican eandadate. According to a dispatch from Chicago somebody has started the pro- ject'of raising, by means of subscriptions from, women and girls, a fund for the purpose of building a battleship to be called the American Girl. The money will probably be raised by the endless chain plan. If the name should be at all characteristic of the ship she would be a very chipper craft- McCoy, the prize-fighter, says he develops his muscles by sawing wood erery morning before breakfast. Tbis is a pointer for ambitions athletes. Surety the dividing line l i f t w w n the North and the South is being rnpiilly eftaced, if it has not alreaily disappeared entirely. Severn) years ago President Cleveland proposed to return to the Southern States the old battle flags stored away among the archives of the war between the States, but he was met by such strong opposition that the plan failed. Such men as Governor Forakor, of Ohio, and such the New York .iVail and Express angrily and bitterly denounced the project. The political heavens were lurid with their wrath. But even their great displeasure at the thought has passed away. Both are now advocating tlie r e t u r n of the tattered old flags to the heroes who wore the gray. After the conversion of such spirits to fraternal feelings it is safe to assume that in each of the great divisions of tho country the people have f u l l y agreed to let tho dead past bury its dead. It is not generally known that the Star-Spangled Banner of the United States is older than any one of tho present flags of the great European powers. It was adopted in 1777 by the Congress of the Thirteen Colo- nips of North America, then at war with the mother country. Tho yellow and red Spanish flag came out in 1785; the French tri-color was adopted in 1794; the red English emblem, with the "Union Jack in the upper corner, dates from 1801; the Italian flag first fluttered in 1848; the Austro-Hungarian flag was one of the consequences of the compromise of 1SG7; the present German flag first appeared in 1871, and the Russian tri-color is quite a recent affair. The only modification that the American flag has undergone since its origin consists in the addition of a new star every time a new State is taken into the Union. About one month ago my child, w h i c h is fifteen mouths old, had an attack of diarrhoea accompanied by vomiting. I gave it such remedies as are usually given in suoh cases, but as nothing gave relief, we seut for a physician and it was under his care for a week. At this time tho child bad been sick for about ten days and was having about twenty- five operations of the bowels every twenty-four hours, and wo were convinced that unless it soon'ob- tained relief it would not live. Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera .and Di.irrhceft Remedy was recommended and I decided to try it. I soon noticed a change for the better; by its continued use a complete cure was brought about and it is. now perfectly healthy.--C. L. BOGGS, Stumptown, Gilmer Co., W. Va.
