Kaleigii, N. 0., Nov. 19.—The rail
way commission to*chiy r'escindjid all
orders fixing rates for rcptal of t«le-
phouea or'exchange service. There was
argument by John W. Daniel and oth
ers against the fixing of rates. Attor
ney General Walser gave the board his
opinion that it had no jurisdiction with
res])ect to telephone rates more than to
make or cause to be made just and rea*
sonable rates of charges for transmission
of messages by any telephone lines do
ing business in JS'orth Carolina, and
that the commission has no authority
to prescribe charges for the rental of
telephone wires, instruments and ex
changes or use thereof.

He says that 200,000 pension claims

Mr. Fife Proplicsies a Plague.
A Lexington gentleman who was in

said, that unless the people got on their

The Scate Auditor announces the
pension allowances for the current year
as follows: First class pensioners$62, a
decrease of $2 from last year: second
class $46.50, decrease $1.50; third class
$31, decrease $1; fourth class and
widows $15.50, decrease 50 cents. The
pension tax yields $2,200 less than last
year. There is also an increase of 49
in the number of pensioners. These
tw’O things combine to cause the reduc
tion. The total of the pension tax for
this year’s use is $102,174.
The St.'ite Superintendent of Public
instruction writes a letter to John C
McMillan, supervisor of public schools
in Duplit:, saying “Your maximum of
$30 is too low. I never heard of any
necessity of a maximum before you
refer to $12.50 as a minimum. This is
a new condition. I will say that
teacher -.\ho is not worth more than
$12.50 per month is not worth employ
ing at all. You can never expect to
make the public schools amount to any
thing with $12.50 teachers. In some
counties the committee will strain at
gnat and Swallow a camel, all at the ex
pense of ttie children. They will grind
down teachers to $15 and 820 (your
county is the first I have heard of at
$12.50) and then sign an order for a
chart for $38 or $40, and think they
have done something smart. Away
with such men to manage our schools!

been here for several days consulting
with the powers that be with a view to
knocking the pins out from under Con

—Raleigh correspondence of the
Charlotte Observer, 24th: Speaker Hile
man left for home this afternoon. He
says he believes the Pops can beat tbe
Democrats. He admits that all parties
are in a tangle and declines to say
whether ho thought the Populists had
gained any strength. He declares he is
watching the Democrats to see whether
they will “play the fool” or not. When
asked what he meant by this phrase he
said “all of them join the gold men.”

“How long does it take to make one
ef these?” said the manufacturer in re
sponse to an inquiry. “Well, it de
pends entirely upon, circumstances. It
is not a mechanical operation, the fin
ishing off of a wax model as true to life
as this. ” And he pointed to the bust of
a laughing child ^vhos6 rosy neck and
bright eyes were framed by clustering
curls. “To make these one must have
studied anatomy as well as drawing
and modeling. We begin in the same
way as a sculptor would to* make a
statue. After the wax has cooled tho
eyes are put in, the face is ‘made up,’
as theatrical folks say, and the wig is
fastened on, and the wooden body is
shaped. We make all our hands and
feet from life, and they cost about $10.
If we have an order for an entire figure,
we always model it from life. The life
size w^ax figures of infants are among
the finest things we manufacture, and
they add much to the attractiveness of
a show window, as was illustrated last
winter when a Washington street retail
dealer displayed one during the holida,y
season. The head and shoulders, such
as are seen in the milliners’ windows,
cost from $40 to $45. The wig makes
considerable difference in the price, as
we use the best hair, and it is expen
sive, especially the natural blond,
which is scarce. The children’s heads
cost $20 or thereabout.
“Ail the finishing off imaginable/’
he continued, “would^notmake a figure
stand the tost of a season behind the
glare of a glass unless the wax has a
natural pink tinge. The reason some of
the models look so deathly is because
the wax is bad and not properly color
ed. We use beeswax, slightly colored,
and flesh-tints are put on in addition. ”

“I am quite willing to contribute to
the—er—amusement of the evening, ”
interposed the amateur poet, who W’aS
bursting to read his latest and couldn’t
get anybody to take the hints he con
tinually threw out.
There was a soimd like a groan from
a corner of the room and a guest went
out. The others prepared for the worst,
except one elderly man who pulled
down his waistcoat with an unnecessary
show of determination.
“The title of this littlo effort, ” the
poet went on, drawing a roll from an
unsuspected pocket, “is ‘The Eaindrops
on the Roof. ^ ”
“Well, of course it does,” exclaimed
the elderly man. “Where would you
expect it to drop? When the rain drops
on any well regulated house, it natu
rally chooses the roof. Perhaps you
expect people to take the roof off when
it rains, or you think that we imagine
that it drops on the foundation or in
the umbrella stand? Everybody else
knows that rain drops on the roof,
young man, and they don’t want you
to write a poem to tell ’em. If you can
write one that will explain why it al
ways rains when a man goes out in a
new hat and without an umbrella we’re
open to hear it. ”
The poet did not contribute any fur
ther to the amusement of the evening.

Some Statistias and the Appointments for
The Western Nortli Carolina Confer
ence which met in Central M. E.
Church, South, Wednesday of last week,
was 0)-g:'.tii’/',ed in 1890, and is composed
of the terriiory taken from the old
North Carolina Conference, and from
the Ho'lston conference. The territory
of the conference is all in North Caro
lina, embracing that portion of tbe
State west of Greensboro.
“There 'are in the conference 199
traveling preachers and 19 superan
nuated preachers. There are 652
churches, valued at $113,000. There
are 108 parsonages, valued at $120,000.
The Sunday Schools number 680, with
40,000 scholars. The amount of money
raised in the conference last year for
support of its preachers was $86,000 ;
for missions, 1813,000; for church educa
tion, $2,000. The total amount of
money raised in the conference last
year for all purposes was $192,047.73.
There are 10 districts in the confer
ence and 186 pastoral charges. The
districts are presided over by as
many presiding elders. These eiders
constitute the -cabinet of the Bishop,
and to them he looks for advice and
counsel in stationing the preachers.
Presiding elders are only advisory, how
ever, and the l)ishoi>’s power is absolute
in the making of appointments.

“The lufamotis Cliarge.”
This is the Columbia Register’s char-
acteriisatjon of the now notorious alle
gation made by Marion Butler in a re
cent speech at Rocky Mount, tbe re
port of which he denied, but the truth
of which has been fixed upon him. It
s.ays “it is the mosi infamous remark
we have ever seen attributed to aSoutli-
esn white man,” and further; “The
decent, respectable people of our sister
State must indeed blush with shame,
and their blood boil with indignation
that one who is supposed to represent
them should bo so devoid of all sense
of truth and honor aa to utter such a
sentiment. It is a villanous libel on
the Dtmoerats of tiie State, and, iridi-
rectly'l of tne Hho'n., . ''' '-
surely reached the deopeji . > ' ol
infamy.” - ^
Concerning tllS three signers ot the
affidavit printed in Friday’s Observer,
who ^wear that IJutler used in substance
the language attfibuled to him, the
R.^leigh News and Observer says;
We happen to know all three of these
gentlemen well. IMr. McKenzie is the
rector of the Episcopal church at Eockv
Mount, and srands deservedly high in
his church. Dr. Tnorpe is one of the
leading physicians of his section, widely
kuo.vu as a gentleman of character and
standing.' ivir. ITa'iigblry is one of the
first citizens of Rocky Mount, a gentle
man of undoubted rejuitation for in
tegrity and voracity. Wherever these
gentlemen are known, there will not be
a suggestion of a doubt that Senator
Butler said substantially what the

Our esteemed contemorary need not
fear Senator Butler’s denial; he dare
not contradict it; bis shameful remark
was heard by too many for any denial
to hold water. If he should happen to
do so we have the affidavits of some of
our foremost citizens that our c large
w'as true. One ol the li^ost promineti|
Populist leaders in this section acknowb
edges that the man who is now at the
head of that party in this State made
this damnable accusation against bis
fellow citizens. We stood beside this
gentleman when Butler befouled himself
his State and his race, by his utterance
and noticed his look of righteous indig
' Brave gentleman and soldier of thg
“lost cause” as he was, it was plain tq
be seen that his v;hole soul revolted at
the vileness of his chief. Can anyone
wonder at it?
