BALTIMORE, Oct 30. At a Democratic

the campaign, speeches were made by Ed

stare convention, une moss important ad
dress of the evening was that of Senator
Gorman, who. In addition" to his advocacy
of the -state ticket and his excoriation of
the Republicans, referred to President
Roosevelt and tho race Issue as follows:
"Ordinarily, the result of the state elec
tion concerns the people of tho state alone.
Its only bearing upon National politics Is
the fact that the Legislature to be elected
will select a Senator to represent this
state In the Senate of the United States.
But circumstances have occurred which
make the result this year of more than
"The extraordinary, unusual and, Ithlnk
you will agree with me, unfortunate ac
tivity and interest displayed by the Pres
ident of the United States In participating
in his party's councils by calling to Wash
ington the prominent Republicans of this
state is such an uncalled-for Interference
in our domestic affairs that lt must be
met with no uncertain protest by our peo
ple. Interference Is Undue.
"I have a great respect for the Presi
dent He ought not to be criticised lightly
or unjustly. But lovers of liberty must
enter their earnest protest whenever high
officers of the Government exercise pow
ers, or commit acts, which tend to restrict
the rights of the people or unduly Inter
fere in matters of state: concern.
"President Roosevelt Is a man o fine
attainments and of honest convictions. He
Is young in years, impulslve,ambltious;
is a partisan and believes ln"hls party.
In his anxiety for its success he is liable
to make mistakes, and In my judgment
he has committed a most grievous error
in forcing to the front an issue which
must be deplored by all the conservative
men of the country.'
"In every country where the race ls3uo
has arisen It- has .always carried in its
wake lamentable results It has been at
tended by evil consequences. I trust his
earnestness and Impetuosity may be re
strained, and that he may be prevailed
upon to accept wiser counsel In his treat
ment of the negro problem.
"From the day a cargo of Africans was
landed and sold as slaves until this hour,
the burden of the white man of this coun
try has been more than that borno by any
people known to history. It was one of
the causes which led to a most gigantic
war, which drenched the country in blood,
destroying many homes and impoverishing
a gallant people.
"Immediately after the close of the war
came adoption of the fourteenth and fif
teenth amendments, which enfranchised
the blacks for party purposes alone, and
thus Injected Into the body politic a peo
ple unprepared and unfitted for self-government
"The Anglo-Saxon has never, and will
never, tolerate the social equality or the
political domination of the negro race.
Deems Mistake Most Serious.
"Mr. Roosevelt in his anxiety constant
ly to be doing something, has made a mis
take. I believe of him, as I have believed
of all Presidents, that he is sincere and
patriotic But every nian In a public po
sition Is liable to mistakes. None could
bo more serious than the one made by him
In his attempt to force again to the front
the question of equality, social and polit
ical, of the negro race. Thoughtful citi
zens, both North and South, regret such
an Issue. They dread and will evade It If
possible. ' But If the President - and his,
party drive the issue, it must be met and
tije responsibility must rest -upon them.
"The President is the-leader of his party
now, and will be next year. 'The politi
cians of his party may advise him the
solid negro vote for in voting they are
indivisible holds the balance of power in
the great central states of the Union, and
that In the States of New Jersey, New
York, Connecticut Ohio and Illinois it Is

two-thirds of tho Republican party. It Is
an absolute necessity, for without It the
state Is hopelessly lost to the Republicans.
'Unless I mistake tho temper of the
people of this country, there will he the

the same protest that was accorded In 1S92
by the white people of tho entire Union
against the Administration of President
Harrison for his attempt to force negro

This town, has been ago? for 24 hours
with the doings of members of a religious
sect who call themselves "God's Anoint

of Mr., and Mrs. O.-'V.Hurt, In the'south

and burned, the flowers, shrubbery and
fruit trees were dug up and destroyed
During the day reports in circulation
averred that dogs and cats had been
burned on a sacrificial fire.
Members of the sect deny the case of
the cats but admit that a dog was burned.
They say, however, that It was a dog
that was not wanted about the house,
that it would not go away, and that It
was first killed In a humane manner and
then burned. Neighbors Insist that both
cats and dogs to a considerable number
were consigned to the flames, as a mani
festation of the creed of the sect

the public Interest In prevailing condi

people visited the place. All the after

At one time the place of worship was
in the city limits, but the authorities took
the matter up and required a removal.
At the Hurt house, admission Is denied
to all callers. Many of his friends ap

but In every Instance but one, he was
inaccessible. Either Creffleld or Brooks
met callers at the door, and refused them
either admittance or refused to call Mr,
Hurt "With respect to the latter the In
variable answer was that Mr. Hurt was
seeking God and could not be disturbed.
"When a reporter Inquired why the wor

Brooks referred him to a passage In

where a number of persons were lying

other rude places of rest The room was
wholly bare of furniture, and tho wor

Qne young girl was apparently in a
spasm. There was a cloth over her face
and the officer stepped up to remove the
cloth, when several of tho worshipers
shouted. "Don't touch her."
He removed the cloth, however, In spite
of the resistance offered.
