Fill DAY, NOVEMBER 2G, 1897.
At the next session of Congress in De
cember a bill will undoubtedly be intro
duced providing for postal saving banks
throughout the United States. Jn view of
the fact that such banks are in use in
nearly every civilized country in the
world and have proved to be a great
public benefit in every case, it is sur
prising that Congress did not provide
for postal savings banks in this country
It is understood that the only opposition
to the establishment of postal savings
banks comes from the banking interests
in the North and East, where the country
is thickly settled and savings banks
chartered by the state are so numerous
that the necessity for additional banking
facilities is not so keenly felt as in the
South and West where the conditions are
exactly the reverse, the country being
thinly settled and banks of any kind few
and far between. Private banks in
which the people have little confidence
are about the only places in which a poor
man can deposit his little surplus, and
even these are mostly out of reach.
We fully believe that postal savings
banks should be established for the bene
fit of the people of the whole country,
and coincide in the opinion of ex-Postmaster
General Wanamaker, as given in
his annual report for 1891, where he says
in part :
The reports of ;(5,598 postmasters state
that the distance of savings banks from
post ollices varies from a few feet to
hundreds of miles, and the actual average
of distance'Tn"lS7(i out of 2,807 counties
in the I'niled Stales is 28 miles. As the
post-ollice is within easy walking distance
of the home of every man, woman, and
child, so would the place of deposit for
savings be equally accessible and con
venient. The establishment of postal savings
banks would also enable the government
to refund the national debt with the
money deposited by the people, and thus
in the course of time place the whole
debt in the hands of our own citizens,
where it should have been since the first
debt was created.
The Holly Inn Orchestra.
Among the many new attractions at
the Holly Inn the present i season is the
orchestra. The managers of the Inn,
Messrs. Atwood & Sise, have spared no
efl'ort to provide for their guests an
orchestra of talented young men who
have already made themselves known in
the musical world. Frank Edward Lind
sey, the leader, is a young man who for
sone years was the popular pianist and
musical director of the famous McGibney
Concert Company, and who will be
remembered as the genial entertainer at
the Inn during the past two seasons.
The other members are E. lioyal Ellis,
L. Stanley liedding, and Fred J. Pool.
Mr. Ellis, violinist, has for several years
past been a valuable member of Boston's
best orchestras; L. Stanley lledding,
clarinetist, is a member of the American
Watch Co.'s band, and during the past
five years has played in orchestras at
North Conway and Mt. Vernon, N. II.,
and Fred J. Pool of West Medford,
Mass., is a promising young musician
and solo cornetist of the Medford Mili
The opening concert of the season was
given last Saturday evening, the follow
ing excellent program being rendered :
Overture, Orpheus, Offenbach
Intermezzo, Kusse, Franke
Opera selection, Der Vogelhandler, Zeller
Piano solo, Sonata Pathetique, Beethoven
Frank Edward Lindsey.
Waltz, Robin Hood, De Koven
March of the Marines, Brook
The morning and evening concerts will
be given during the entire season in the
large music room of the Inn, and musical
entertainments will also be given in the
Village Hall from time to time, for the
benefit of all Pinehurst guests.
The members of the orchestra have
already shown what they are capable of
doing, and have proved themselves gen
glemen to all with whom they have come
in contact, and the Holly Inn has the
good fortune to possess an orchestra sec
ond to none and in line with the other
attractions at the Inn the present season.
The American Journal of Science de
scribes a new mineral from North Caro
lina, which has just been investigated by
the collector, Mr. Pratt, of Yale Univer
sity, and by II. W. Foote. It is closely
related to harmotone and also resembles
it very much in appearance. The crys
tals are very minute, white, translucent
to transparent, and closely set in druses
on a heavy white gargue. It is entirely
new and distinct in crystallization and
composition, making an important but
rare addition to mineralogy. Pojmlar
Hertford on the Penjuimans river, in
eastern North Carolina, boasts the pos
session of the only floating bridge sup
ported by air-tight whiskey barrels.
