KELVIN. STECLC * JOHNSON to iron* AND PROPRIETORS. SATURDAY MORNING, SEPT. 3, 1898 DEMOCRATIC TICKET- FOR CONGKKSS: JOHN WALTER SMITH, Or WORCESTER COUNTY. PSEUDO PROTECTION. Protection of home industries i · one of the cardinal principles of th pseado revenue bill of 1897. In tha respect it is only a half-way meas ore, reckoned from the standpoiu of a consistent protectionist. It i BO protection whatever to. the far men to put an import tax on the ar tides they export, and they are, un der the operations of the DingJeji law, compelled to sell a large pro portion of their surplus products in wheat pits and cotton exchanges-international markets--and outside competition makes the price, under ordinary conditions, on a free-trade basic; but they are compelled to buj everything at protective prices. "An export bounty on agricultural stn plw.Vsays an advocate of equitable protection, "would as effectually raise the home prices of the entire production of these staples as a protective tariff is effectual in artift- ' ' cially enhancing; the home price ol imported and of home manufactures." This plea for justice anc equity in the protective system is · ' unanswerable yet timely, as agri- 1 cultural products make up threw- fourtbs of the exports of this country. It is, at the same time, a sharp arraignment of the protective system as a whole. Why should the priee of any commodity he artifi- · eially raised for the sole purpose of "protecting" monopolistic manufacturing concerns? The result would be the same to the people--the cou sumers--they would have to pay the bounty on agricultural products, as they now pay the bounty government allows manufacturers to exact from them on their goods. The time · lor bounty-giving ought to be passed when a protected manufacture is more largely exported from this " country than from any of the great manufacturing nations of the world. It is the proud boast of 'the prosperity-howling newspapers that our manufactures of steel and other metals are in fair shape to outstrip the world. Could they .do this if ·to the priee quoted foreign buyers were added the 40 or 50 per cent. import tax which they are author- ised to charge home buyers? Not ' 'by a long sight! They have met other manufacturers upon equal terms in an unprotected market and carried · , off the lion's share of trade. Protection may hare been fit work · for ' national legislature when pur manufacturing industries were in an experimental stage, but in this day of America's acknowledged greatness it diseonnts the business enterprise of onr people, the genius and skill of our workmen and travesties our independence andlimitless resources. The past achievements of trade are · but an earnest of that to come us- ward if it is properly sought--if the markets of the world are opened to ns untrammeled by restrictions of protective tariffs, and stimulated, as is alone needful, by healthy competition. Equitable protection would be bad enough, but when one-fourth of our products and a handful of producers are "protected," and. the remaining three-fourths of our products and almost all the millions uf oar people are "unprotected," it is robbery on a large scale, with government's sanction. If protection 1 mast be equity must be its ruling ' feature; but much better will it' be for tbe nation if we cast away protection as a baby deviee unsuited to a grown-up, vigorous and business- seeking nation. POLt TOGETHER FOR WATER WORKS. . The need of water works in Denton grows more and more imperative ajl the time, --as 1 the ;insuranee companies doing business here grow more .cautious about their riskjs. , Tbe pifws and the business men should make a compact for nnre- '- mitting efforts for this attainable jprojeet until it is'attained. The ·',; Advantages of water'works, outside , MO} protection from Un', have been : fiven tine and again by the JOUR- · HAL, and appeal not less now than --';ever to tn'e'Teoinfort-loTing house~holder; bat^the cold facts will not ; allow us to lose sight of the main '· object, preservation of our property interests. Insurance rates on property in the business part of the town .- bave .reached a most burdensome Hgvre, oftentimes as high as six per cent.,' and in the residence portions ' ' the* rate'has been increased within · the past five years one hundred per .,,·.**»*. Water works, and nothing t " bn't water works, will bring ns relief ,,in this respect, for it has been demonstrated on several occasions that Denton has as'skilf ul and determined , ore-fighters, and as good fire appa- ·· rates and water supply as can be found in any of the peninsula towns, 1 Therefore, let the property-owners, ,the business men and everybody · .make a long pull, a strong pull and '' a pnll altogether for water works, and we will get them. ·· ·«»·· There is a rumor current that the one Democratic member of the peaee commission intends to resign. The reason is not given, but it is . .presumed that sufficient cause exists. f .Perhaps heobjectedio playing pawn ' for President MeKinley in a cut-out · -gain* of diplomacy. EDITORIAL NOTES. If the suggestions of tho Cz.-ir o Russia are to bo carried out--and i is to bo earnestly hoped they will b --the profession of arms will bo come obsolete, and war's alarms wi bo heard no more. The ruler of th greatest military country in th world, who has 2,500,000 soldiers a his beck, says the maintenance o great armies and armaments are in tolerable burdens upon the people from which the nations should b all means be willing to free them selves. A war of the present day i brief but terrible, as illustrated in our recent short conflict with Spain and there are m'any reasons to nr; that the United States, now also great military and naval power should follow and endorse tha pro posal of the Russian. Would no guaranteed peace be better than th expenditure of hundreds of millions more for greater navies and largei armic's--with impoverished taxpayers? Tho Philadelphia Times riipbso dizes over the entry of the oyster and the reed bird on the city bill o fare, and nature's bouutifulness in general, thusly: "Our nation, it may be repeated, has been gifted with a most generous measure of bounty Between the two oceans and from the lakes to the gulf tbe light of the fructifying sun is reflected in the glad smile of growing harvests, an tbe orchard trees that seem more than willing to bend beneath tbeir luscious loads. But as if this was not enough; as if our people hac been so given less than their deserv- ings, this pair of nature's tastiest masterpieces, the homely oyster anc its feathered comrade of the moment, are added to crown the mighty feast." Famous orators of the United States aro to be invited to participate in the great Peace Jubilee to bo held in Chicago in October. Among others the committee on invitations and speakers have extended invitations to the following to take part: Ex-President Cleveland, Ex- President Harrison, Secretary Alger, Senator Thurston, Senator Wolcott, Henry Watterson, Gen. Fitzuugh Lee, Gen. Joseph Wheeler, Senator Daniel, Archbishop Ireland, Secretary Wilson, Ex-Secretary of State Olney. Recent developments in the case of Captain Alfred Dreyfus, undergoing imprisonment on Devil's Is- and, for divulging army and state secreU, are likely to vindicate that roung officer. Colonel Henry, who was attached to the War Department when Dreyfus was convicted, confessed the forgery of a letter which was the chief factor in the conviction, and then committed sui- side. Dreyfus will probably be re- ried, and acquitted. Philadelphia is preparing to celebrate the triumph of American arms n the late war with Spain with a rand peace jubilee. Doubtless a arge number of people do heartily ejoice that some loved one has re- timed from the war, and the pro- iosed civic function will not be to hem simply a big show. Mr. William C. F. Waller is now ocal editor and business manager f the Dover Delatearean. Mr. Wiliam Sanlsbnry, editor and owner, is Teparing to take a little rest from he arduous labors of newspaper ditorship and general management. Are some of our town authorities omnambulists?

About eight thousand people were resent Monday at a reunion of leptasophs at Pen-Mar, where the annual address was delivered by Olin Bryan, Esq.,of Baltimore.

IJtlliillKJte Ifci.llil The convention :it Ocean (Jity wa made up of the very liost uloimnt o tho Shore Democrat, y, and ;i mm representative gathering has neve collected in the Fiist district. Everj county was represented by the ables and most influential members of th party, all of whom evinced a dee interest in the piocceclings. There wore present fanners, lawyers, mor chants and bankers, .all mon o intelligence aud all very m u c h ii earnest. Some of thoin diffci radically as to tho financial poliej of the Government, and e n t e i e d d e cided objections to the incoi porntioi in the platform of the paity any plank that did not correspond witl their views. But, notwithstanding, this difference of opinion, there wa absolutely no bitterness manifested They presented their case in an argumentative way, and the replies wero made in the sain a spirit. Enstoii Correspondence liattimore Snn The nomination of John Walto Smith for Congress at the Ocean City convention is heartily endorsee by the Democrats of Talbot c o u n t y They remember that when Charles H- Gibson was nominated for Con gress the first time at a convention held in Cambridge, when Thomas J. Keating aud Philip W. Downes were candidates against him, Colone Smith, who was «a delegate from Worcester in that convention, made the nomination of Mr. Gibson. The recollection of this was warm in tho minds of people like Dr. Rose, Mr Wooters, Mr. Elliott aud others who took Talbot's vote to Colone! Smith. It is a satisfactory nomination here; so would have been Applegarth's, Ellegood's, Hopper's or Vickers'. From the Sitoiv Hill Alesstniier. When this question presented itself to the Democracy of the First district some months ago, with a. unanimity unparalleled in the political history of the Shore, tbe name of one man was uppermost in tho thoughts of the people, and at once they made known their desires that the Honorable John Walter Smith, the indefatigable DomocrsUic leader of Worcester county, must be the standard bearer in the campaign of 1898. The Democracy of this district have named the man without Boss dictation and w i t h o u t opposi- :ion, and it is tho opinion of most people that he will bo elected by a substantial majority. From the Chestcrtou-n Tnitiscript "There is not s. man in tho first congressional district which tho Re publicans could elect this year," is ;be summing up of the congressional situation by a prominent Kent county Republican several days ago. Continuing he said, "the fact that 'ol. John Walter Smith was the father of the free school-book-bill will win voters to him from among ;he people who most felt the need ot thi-great relief. Even the colored eoplo will be drawn to the originator of this timely move in behalf of he poor. Then too, he is a fighter and has money." This struck us as re,tty strong Democratic argument. ·You; the Ccittreville Observer. . The nominee is a broad-minded, unselfish gentleman, possessing all the qualifications necessary in the make-up of a successful congressman, and in tho event of his elec- ion, which is well-nigh assured, will again place this district in a josition to secure needed legislation ecause of the ability of its representative. Queen Anne's will give Colonel Smith a large majority. From tfic Cambridge Democrat atul Xewi, On all sides now it is regarded as certain that the fight will be be- ween Mr. Smith and Col. Wilbur J 1 . Jackson, and every public man hat we have talked with, whose o'pinion is worth considering, does not hesitate to say that Smith will win. But let the Republicans know what to expect next year. FOR SALE--One pair of largo mules and four or five young horses. Also one 11-tine Biokford Huffman Grain Drill. Terms easy.

Crowds on hot days; crowds even on rainy days--crowds of pleasant people whose very elbowing is good-natured. The store is made a pleasant, attractive thoroughfare--with rest- places for people and their parcels. It is place to come to. It is store that does things--that even in August takes in and shows more bright good goods than one runs across anywhere else, even in the months when all hope to be busy. This very activity keeps the store different and in advance. Anc makes it the logical exchange place where prudent people and especially critical people turn for supplies. There's newness always; there's right economy--very decided economy in this store that never wastes time through do-nothing dullness. Cotton dress goods.
