A. M. E. ZION CONFERENCE.
The Western North Carolina
confr encr f'ho Zion church mot
at Btatesril... last Wednesday, Bish
op J. W. Hood presiding. Many ol
the delegates passed through our
city on Tuesday from the Cape Fear
and Yadkin Valley section. This
conference takes that part of the
State west of the Cape Fear river.
Many of oor readers will remem
ber our saying a few months ago
that we intended to meet this body
andattraptlo do certain things.
We ari^ot In the 'habit of saying
things for'Bnncombe, and in mak
ing that sUteraent, we meant every
word of it. It was our intention to
do nothing to reUrd the progress of
tbo church nor any of its inetitn-
lions. Wo earnestly desire the
prosperity of every branch of every
connection, and we should ba the
^ one to lay one lota to the way
of auy wortty Institution.
No one can sueoossfhlly deny the
fiMt of much mismanagement with
the SUtr and school in the last
two years, nnd helng fnlly oi^l-
aaai of the bcU and losing hopes of
say remedy, we did complain and
mesni to Inftmn the ooofcrenoe of
the facts, at all hazards. But seeing
that efforia have been bade very re
cently which promise Improvement

that the conference now in session
will show a full appreciation of Rev.

The North Csrolins Coitltion.
If the North Carolina coalition
ha-x failed it is because there had
bee” no time for the welding pro-
cr'S. There v as too n jch eagor-
iBS on tbo part of our new allies to
r’e the ticket, and too uuch nar
row less on the part of the Republi
cans Sb to wbicn side should name
it. The coalH'on in Virginia has
grown out of tie exigencies of State
fntcrosle. An alliance between old
opponent to set matters right in
the Str. 0 led naturally to a perm^
e it organuatio J in favor of Ameri
canizing the Old Dominion. We
hope and ^lievo that the RMobli-
oans aud independents in North
Carolina will got nearer "to each
other, and that two years from now
they will be found upon one plat-
foipn which shall contain no plank
with a sharp sqlinter in it for tender
feet The Liberals ought not to
have nomirated a ticket id advance
of the I epub'Seans. The Republi
cans ought rot to have placed in
their platform, as they did, a stuml^
ling block for prohioUion Republi
cans. The latter ought not to have
allowed the bluiders, referred to, to
disaffect them, as many of them did,
to such an extent as to benefit the
Bourbons. All have blundered ■, let
all oh forbearing. The willingness
to stand together in 1884 must not
MODOAnefthen another. Th* lady
accqsted him for handling the re
volver so carelessly, he said : “it is
not loaded; it can do no harm ho
then pointed it towards her, she ex
claimed, “Oh, Jesse, don’t point
that pistol towards me 1“ he again
said “there is no danger in it, see
here, it is harmless.” When he said
this, be pointed it towards bis heart,
the pistol fired, the man stood quiv
ering, the girl screamed, the blow
was fatal, tbo man fell and instant
ly expired. His remains wore in
terred to-day. “Hopes may be
blasted, anticipations unrealized.

In spite of the bitter cold, quite a
crowd assembled at the Zion church
to the Sabbath-school exhibition.
The opening address, by Minnie
Sumner, was delivered in a manner
to be commended. Miss Bonnar, as
the long suffering Mrs. Caudle, was
excellent and we look forward to
Miss Bonnar becoming a finished el
ocutionist. The song, “Star of the
Twilight," was exquisitely rendered
by Mrs. King, Misses Purcell and
Robinson, and was heartily applaud
ed throughout, Miss Percell having
grand voice that with proper cul
tivation would rank her among the
best of ballad singers. Miss Laura
Davidson’s declamation, “Love in
Latin,” was splended and gain4^
the merited applause. One young
man said, after this he will write
bis in Greek. The song “We shall
meet all thellttle ones there" by Miss-
Purcell Robinson and Gordon,and
Masters Wade and Foster was ex
cellent, and an essay by Miss Young
on “Our Peogle” was skillfully
handled, and if all our young ladies
had her spirit we would indeed be a
noble race. The quartet, “Mqming
Bells," by Messrs. Wade, Wright,
North and Grier was beautiful, and
when ended we, like Oliver Twist,
called for more, and also like him
did not got it There were other
pieces, but as th© small wee hours
were drawing apace, the company
adjourned to the refreshment rooms,
and like our Raleigh friend, attend
ed to the inner man and finally re
turned home much pleased with
their evening’s entertainment.

Yeaterday morning, Nov. 19tb, a

and was emjAoyed by MsasrsBumner

worthy end reliable. After ibis

lines of box oars with their doors open
to reeeive the cotton were standing on
the tracks, and the only Agn of life to
be seen about the depot wee in tbe of-
fioee, where the clerke were quietly at
work. Inside tbe depot two colored
men were trucking freight, otherwise
the depot wore a deeerted and lonesome
look. It was evident that something
enueaslhsd happened and ao Inquiry
quickly fsvealea the cause of it Tbe
hands had etruek. Of the twenty-six
trucken, all except two had thrown
up work and marched op town in a
body'where they congregated on the
sunny eide of Trade street and die-
cussed their action over among them
selves. A reporter for Thk Obskrver,
desiring to find out the cause of their
strike approached one who, by bis
speech and actions, appeared to be tbe
ringleader, and asked him what the dif-
“We want oor money they owe iia,"
be said, “and we want more of it. We
are looking out for ouraelves and for
our families, which we are obliged to
do. Some of ue have worked for two
months without our money, and otben
have worked for one whole month
wltbont being paid up. Wbat wo want
is a full settlement all around, and a lit
tle more pay for night work. We truck
cotton all day long until night and tbeo
when eupper eomee. we can’t stop, but
have to truck compressed cotton right
along until 9 and 10 o’clock. If we
stop to go to supper, we run tbe risk 0'
being dlscbarg^. For this extra work
et night we do not get s centof pay.
We contracted to woik for the railroad
company for tao per month, payable on
the 15th of each month. We have not
been able to get oar pay and so we de
cided to strike and either better our
situation or. make It worse. Wears
ready to go back to work whenever tbe
railroad company will secede to our
demand for pay .for our extra work at
Of tbe two truckers who refused to
join tbe strtkera, one had joined a strike
at tbe Air-Line depot lome time since,
and found Iteueb bard work to get back
■gain and each a poor business gener
ally, that be decided'not to take any
more of it in bis, and remained at
work. Tbe other darkey took a pbllo-
Bopbieal view of the matter and eaid
that if be was not getting much money
at tbe depot, he knew be could not
make more than 10 or 16 cents a day up
town. BO he decided to stay. EfforU
were made all tbe morning to get hand*
to;flU the strikers' places, but nnsuc-
ceesfully, not a single leborer being
found willing to go to work. The de
pot entboritles telegraphed to Greens
boro and other plaoee for a set of hands
and until these arrive trucking at tbe
depot will have to remslu at a etand-
InqoUy among tbe depot men as to tbe
cause of tbe strike was made and they
eaytbat the hands bsd no cause to
strike for pay. as they drew tbeir money
every Setuiday night, and when the pay
train eomee In for tbeir monthly eeUI*-
meat, ae a general thing nothing or
veiT little is ooming to them, and that
all of them have been peid In full or in
part for tbeir work lOp to date. They
agree tbet tbe hands ought to be paM
extra for their night work, and thU de
mand will very probably be seceded to.
CeptJ.J.Gormley, tbe depot agent,
got tbe seetion bendis from tbe railroad
at work in tbe afternoon and will get
along with them until e new eet of
