OUtVTll OF l>. W. HA.IN.
This cst«cm»d public servant died at
hi« rcsidomw in Rtvli'ij’h on Wednesday
BftcrnooD at five o'clock and forty mio-
It is with profound regret that we
make this imounccmcnt. “An honest
Biiin, the noblest work of God,” has
passed away. Ilis death is the State’s
Donald W. Bnin wns born in Raleigh
on April 2d, 1841, and ho was in his
51st year. In 1857 he lift school nnd
was employed as u clerl: in the office of
the Ooniptruller of the State, where he
remained until 1865, when he was ap-
puinti.'d chiiif clerk in the office of the
State treasurer. Jonathan Worth was
priivisional treasurer at this lime under
(luvurnur il olden. From this date to
January 1st, 1885, he held the position
of chief clerk. In November, 1884 he
was elected State treasurer and tookoHBca
in January following. He was the only
person who has been elected treasurer
for a third term Hnce the war. He knew
tbe office of State treasurer thoroughly
and he administered the financial affairs
of the State to the entire satisfaction of
tbe people and with great honor and
credit to himself. Aiid nhile io other
States this ^reat trust has been betrayed
there is no citizen of this or any other
State whojwell knew Ponald W. Bain
who would not have trusted him person
ally with all tbe money whic;h has passed
through his hands without bond and se
curity well knowing the treasure of the
State would have been just as secure as
if he had given bond in ten times the
amount which ho did give.
Mr. Bain bus been a prcHuineiit Mason
all his life. He has held most every po
sition within the gift of the waft in this
State, and in 18C7, be fiucceedcd his
father a« Grand Secretary of the Grand
Lodge and has ocuupied this responsible
position ever siuce. He has been a fa
miliar figure in the Grand Lodge every
year since 18(i7.
He was n prominent Odd Fellow.
From 1885 to 1887 he was Grand
CommandeT of the Knights Templar. In
18(!5 hp was married to Miss Adelaide
V. Hill,^daB"hterofthe late Dr. W. G.
Hill, of Kalragh.
For many years he was a devptod mem
ber of the Methodist Episcopal chureh.
South, and for years he has been secre
tary of the North Carolina Annual Con-
feronee. He was one of the pillars of
his church in the State. Mr. Bain was
one of the purest men the State has ever
produced. Hisservices to the State have
been invaluable. During his long career
as a public man lie has diocharged every
public duty with singular fidelity and
Qcst class ability. Ho was always cour
teous in his beariog and firm in decision
and no man left his presence after trans
acting business who was not most favor
ably impressed with him as the State’s
chief financial officer.
It is a matter of much regret that tbe
long and fatal illness of Mr. Bai:i was
due to overwork, which brought on gen
eral nervous prosi ration, which developed
orgiinic disease of the heart, from which
Mr. Bain's whole life was one of ex
ample for the young meo of the State.
In every avenue of life bis character was
that of a Christian gentleman. The ris
ing generation are pointed to his life as
embracing and emphasizing all tbe quali
ties which ^0 to make up honorable citi
zenship. For purity in private and pub
lic life, for faitbtulness as a public officer,
who proved that h« always regarded “pub
lic office as a public trust," and as a true
and devoted, but unostentatious Christian
ho stand.4 out in North Carolina as a bea-
ciin light to her sons and daughters.
Ponee to his asbes. The ^orld is
much better that Donald W. Bain haa
lived, and his death will be M aioeerely
mourned as any man who has preoeded
him “to that bourne from whence no man

ANDWIIXPUTON THE VASTEST OF
ALL FAST TBAIN8.
The completion of what is known at
the Belt Line in Atlanta giving the Sea
board system an entrance into that city
at the Union depot, will soon witness tbe
inauguration of another forward move
ment by which tbe plans and purposes of
the company will be fully put into opera
tion. Tbe details are fully set forth in
the following article from the Atlanta
Journal. It says;
On the 20th of November a momen
tous event will occur. The fastest rail
way line that has ever sent a flying loco
motive into the city of Atlanta will en
ter the union depot. It is the Seaboard
Air Line whioh will beat all previous
records for safety, celerity and dispatch.
This line established itself from the start
as a fast line, putting on freight sched
ules from the very first, enabling the
handling of freight from New York,
Philadelphia and Baltimore in 68 hours,
and from Boston in 88 hours.
This prompt dispatch is something
unheard of in Atlanta’s previous history,
and it noon revohitienized the matter of
time on freight and the older lines found
it ncccssary to give more attention to de
lays, aud it justly claims that tbe general
care of business has resulted in great
benefit to meet the changed state of af
The first schedule on this splendid
line was put on April 26, 1892, and
through Pullman car service wos estab
lished between Atlanta uud Norfolk, Va.,
about May 1st, 1892.
Through car line to (Jbailegton, South
Carolina, making tbe entire run in day
light was established shortly after, and
the contract was let for building the- Belt
Lino between North Decatur and How
ell’s station, on tbe W. & A. R. R., July
This connection will be made at a cost
of about $24^,000, which will enable
tbe through trains to enter the union de
pot on November 20tli.
The through passenger trains with
Pullman equipment, and the »hort line
between Atlanta and Old Point Comfort,
Va., and the through connection with
the world renowned Bay Line up the

The company has spared no paiuB or

FROZEN TO HIS SEAT.
A LOnOSiriTIVE FIREMAN WHO WAS
LITKUALUY 8CAKSD ALMOST TO
“It ill not often that an engineer stays
on his seat in tho face of a collision if he
has a chance to jump,” said an old rail
road man last night. “When he doesn’t
jump its because he hasn’t time. I re
member onco when a fireman was meto-
phorically frozen to his seat. I ws.s on
the engine at the time. See these gray
hairs?” ami he pushed back his hat. “I
got them all in about two minutes. It
happened on the Indianapolis division of
the Pennsylvania lines. I was in charge
of the fast mail train No. 7, and Charley
Mason, as good an engineer as ever took
hold of a throttle, was hauling us. No.
7 is a fast train anyhow, but that night
we were late out of Columbus, and I tell
you wo were splitting the wind. Having
nctbiog else to do I climbed over to the
engine, and asked Charley to let me
run her awhile, and he pushed over to
give me room. Everything went as love
ly as a May dance until we started down
tho hill. Suddenly a red light showed
up ahead of us on the track. Tbe aw-
fulucss of that minute I cun never de
scribe. “We are gone, Charley,’ I yell
ed to the engineer behind me. There's a
flat car ahead of us. See that red light.'
“Charley saw it and started to get
down. I yelled at him not to do it, that
we might escape death, but if we jumped
from that engine, running at least eighty
miles an hour, we would be killed sure. I
shut off the steam, and, throwing on the
air, began ‘plugging’ her. Tbe wheels
reversed, but she rode over the sand as if
there was none on the track. Charley
clung to me with wide staring eyes; and I
honestly believe he was praying. Nearer
nearer we rushed to that fatal light—
and dashed past it. Soon we were stopp
ed, and I called the fireman to go back
with me and ascertain what it was. He
could not move, and when I pulled him
from his seat he was as stiff aa a poker,
andit was several seconds before he could
utter a souud. The poor fellow was par
alyzed with fear, and it was a long time
before be recovered. What was tbe red
light doing there? A fool agent bad
come up tbe track to flag a train , follow-
io^ us and left his red light near the
rails. When I met him I never felt so
much like murdering a man in my life?”
UNCLE MDSE’S PKAYER.
Great consternation, followed by wild
laughter, was an innovation of the chapel
exercises at tho penitentiary this morning.
It was occasioned by a ’possum prayer
from old Mose Allen, a South Carolina
negro with one leg, who was dreaming
of Thanksgiving Day in the near future.
Chaplain Dudley opened the prayer meet
ing as usual and prisoners followed briefly.
When all heads were bowed in reverence
old Mose jumped at the opportunity and
delivered the following prayer:
■‘Dear beloved brudderin and sister’n
I tank de Lord for permittin’ me to kum
ter church dis yer beautiful Sabbotmorn.
Ye all dunno know that beautiful Thanks
giving Day is near at ban.’ On dat day
some folks will eat turkey, some eat
chicken, some cat duck, some eat lamb,
and some eat sheep. But us nig^eri^,
we would like that good old 'poss. Kooh
’im, bring ’im in, take all the haar of 'im,
put 'im out two nights and let ’im fross.
Brie^ 'im in. ParbiTl 'Ini Stuff 'im
like you would a turkRy, an' base 'im.
Put ’im in de pan. Put sweeten tater>

id brown and de gravy drippio in de
pan declar dat ’poss am cooked. Bring
dat 'poss oat dat stove, put 'im on du
table. Don’t cut ’im while e'» ’ot.
For (Christ’s sake, amen.”
Chaplain Dudley stood aghast at the
eouclusion of tho prayer. A inot»eut
afterward tbe chapel re-echoed the wild
and wicked shouts of the prisoners. Fot
nearly five minutes consternalino reigned
!it tlio I n l 'if which lime prayeis were
I'usuuiud, with no further expressiuus
from the ooloiad brethren.
A.V KI.ECTOBAL MAIL CAU TO HE OPEB-
ATBU BETWEEN CITIES.
St, Lonia Pont Ditpntch.
It is reported that the Volucero will
transport about one hundred pounds of
mail between two cities with hitherto un-
attaincd velocity. It consists of a shell
composed of aluminum, tbe interior, ex
cept the chamber for the mail and for the
electric motor, being filled with compri’ss-
ed hydiogen gas to overcome the weight.
It has a houy fan toward the front, oper
ated OD both sides, and aide wings and
propeller in the rear. Two largo trolley
wires supported on arms attached to posts
and elevated to a suitable height, are
placed from four to si.K feet apart, and be-
twcca and below the car the or shell is
situated, suspended on the wires by pul
The electricity from the wires comniu-
nicates through the motor inside of the
car, and sets into rapid motion the front
fans, the wings on cither side and thctii''
bine wind fan in the rear. The win -
are shaped like an umbrella divided ii

The front is sutmounted by an electric

subsequently draws up a suitable weight
until it is brought to tho point for un

on a turntable, the connection made
and it is sent on its mission. It
may have many stations.
DIXON’S ROBIN HUNT.
IT MAY COST HIM NINE HUNDRED AND
The news comes from Albany that
Rev. Thomas Dixon may think he bos
settled for his violation of the law in
shooting robins and other song birds on
the recent shooting excursion, but he has
not. Special Game Protector John W.
Lish has reported that the Rev. Thomas
Dixon killed 25 rjbios, 3 thrush. 1 crow-
bird, and 1 yellow wren, and that he was
fined $155 therefor. The game and fish
commission met recently, and, after con
sidering tho case of the sporting parson,
directed tbe chief game protector to pros
ecute him for full pcimlties besides the
fincB which were inflicted iinder section
82 of article 4 ot the game laws, making
his act a misdemoanor. He will now be
prosecuted under the rtmaining part of
section 82, which makes him liable for
$25 for each bird killed, or $75U in all.
This, added to the $155 be has already
paid, will make his little amusement of
killing robins and wrens cost him $905.
