AT LAST, a suspect has been identified in the notorious "Aryan Blood Brotherhood" letter that has been circulating throughout Baltimore the past two weeks. Folks have fingered one Rev. Daki Napata as the culprit. It's quite the pity they've got the wrong guy.Napata demonstrated in front of The Sun building last week, protesting the depiction of him as a man of no morals and low character. His Wednesday harangue ended shortly after noon. He trudged slowly up Calvert Street, his bullhorn slung over his shoulder as he turned left on Centre Street.

Just days before the city's mayoral primary, thousands of racist leaflets began appearing on the street corners of Baltimore exhorting white voters to support the candidacy of City Councilman Martin O'Malley to save the city from "Blacks and Jews."Attached to each handout is a letter signed by Robert L. Clay Sr., an African-American businessman who claims to have intercepted the hate-filled diatribe purportedly from a group calling itself the Aryan Blood Brotherhood."I'm not necessarily interested in tarnishing anyone's candidacy," said Clay, who paid to duplicate and distribute thousands of copies of the letter.

City ministers yesterday denied any knowledge of the creation and distribution of white supremacist literature a day after a fellow clergyman and supporter of mayoral candidate Lawrence A. Bell III acknowledged copying the material.The fliers, mailed out 11 days ago by a group claiming to be the "Aryan Blood Brotherhood," recounted in graphic, racist terms an "endorsement" of white mayoral candidate Martin J. O'Malley, who denounced it.The incident was the second flap in a month involving Bell supporters and O'Malley, who was the subject of another opposition mailing yesterday, this one by an anonymous group criticizing his work as a defense attorney.

Baltimore's mounted unit will be represented by Mary Burke, Darryl DeSousa, Vincent C. Pacelli, Timothy G. Timmons and William E. Williamson.The gates at Pimlico will open long before the opening ceremony at 9:30 a.m., and it promises to be quite a show for the $2 entry fee.Since 1888, Baltimore's citizens have been lucky enough to have the mounted unit patrolling their neighborhoods, and it has also become one of Baltimore's best "Ambassadors of Goodwill," since the Inner Harbor became a tourist attraction.

Baltimore Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke has amassed a stunning $1,596,881 in his re-election campaign, compared with the $118,802 raised by his chief rival, former mayor Clarence H. "Du" Burns.Mr. Schmoke has spent $1,258,855 -- including $351,413 for fund-raisers and $230,333 to pay his campaign staff, according to his two-volume finance report filed yesterday. That leaves the mayor with a cushy $338,026 to spend in the final three weeks before the Sept. 12 Democratic primary, when this summer's uncharacteristically quiet race is expected to heat up.Burns' all-volunteer campaign has spent nearly all the money it raised.
