AT GRACE CHURCH

REV. M. T. PLYLER TO
DO THE PREACHING
Song Services ' Will Be Feat
ure Church and Sunday
School Forces Will Be
Preparations are about complete for
the revival services that will start at
Grace Methodist church on Sunday
morning ana wnicn will extend over
a two weeks' period, it was stated
this morning by Kev. M. T. Plyler,
pastor of the church. The iniL
week will be devottd entirely to night
services and while the same policy
may be followed on the succeeding
week-day seryices may be held. This
has not been definitely determined as
yet. . The services will be in chargo
of the pastor of the church, who will
utilize the church and Sunday school
forces and wnl not bring in aid from
the outside. Members of ,the congre
gation and the public generally is in
terested to no small extent in the se
ries of services arranged for and the
attendance is- expected to be unusual
The need of increasing and deep
ening the spiritual forces at home
prompted arrangement for the serv
ices, there being a feeling that too
little attention is being paid those
remaining behind. in an effort to throw
every safeguard around the boys in
cantonments and military training
camps. These .spiritual forces at
home, in the opinion of Mr. Plyler,
should be as carefully looked after
as the same forces n the army camps
and because of the fact that every
effort has been inade looking toward
spiritual work In "the various camps,
this work has been allowed, in hjs
opinion, to slow" up at home. The
soldier boys are being well looked
after, it is stated, and it is impera
tive that the spiritual work at home
becorit inued just as it was-" prior to
the assembling of the flower of the
country in the training camps, pre
paratory to duty abroad.
As stated above, the service will
extend over a two weeks period and
the first week will be devoted exclu
sively to night services, each service
beginning promptly at 8 o'clock. The
second week may include day serv
ices and if this r plan is followed ft
will probably hean services during
the afternoon, as it is believed that
more persons would be able to attend
during the afternoon than would be
possible in the morning.
The singing is to be a special fea
ture o fthe services, the choirt com
posed of Mrs. Ct G. Parker, Mrs. J.
TJtley King, Mrs. , E. L. Hart, Miss
Mary Houston and Messrs. W. O. S.
Southerland and N. G. Spaven, having
made preparations to assist in the
successful conduct of the services.

The Latter, in Command Dur
ing Col. Metts Absence,
Will Be Assigned to
It was learned today that Colonel
J. VanB. Metts, commanding officer of
the 119th infantry at Camp Sevier,
formerly the second North Carolina
infantry, will resume command of his
regjmerlt about April first. Colonel
Metts has been at Fort Sills, Oklaho
ma, since about the first of the year
taking a special course of instruction.
He will relieve Col. Lee J. Parker,
who will be assigned to duty else
where. The artillery at Camp Sevier, com
posed mainly of Tennesseans and
North Carolinians, has been brought
right-about-face to the beginning ot
the end of intensive military training
h?re before going overseas. The
second battalion of the 114th field ar
tillery, formerly the first Tennessee
regiment, has been selected for honor
of being the first to do actual firing
on the artillery range at Cleveland
mills, 20 miles above Greenville, in
the heart of the mountains. The bat
talion will leave on March 15, and it
is supposed that it wil remain for two
weeks. The first battalion will fol

second battalion were recruited from

battery A came from Memphis, bat
tery B from Chattanooga, and battery
C from Knoxvile, so that the regiment
is an all-Tennessee organization.
The regiment was organized after
the declaration of war, and was de
signed as a field artillery regiment
from the very outset, thus obtaining
the . very highest class of men. It
was the only regiment to arrive at
Camp Sevier above the war strength,
special permission having been ob
tained from the southeastern depart
ment to do this, in order to offset in
evitable future losses. Less than 15
drafted men were put in to fill up its
Continued drafts of the most highly
skilled men for immediate service
overseas is understood to have delay

backs thus received have each time
been made up with a good will. At
present, training is also a little hin

who are away, most of them at Fort
Sill, for special instruction.

Mr. C. F. Hamme; of This City, Gives
Interview on City's Progress.
Many North. Caroiinia buyers are
in New York at the present time and
are not only enjoying the sights that
are always to be found m the metrop
olis, but are reveling in the first touci
of spring weather that Gothamis
have experienced this season. R. S.
Carroway, writing In the Raleigh-
News a,nd Observer, has the following
"North Carolinians in the metropo
lis this week enjoyed the first touch
of spring weather that Gothamites
have experience&-tbijBi season and, fol
lowing the severe"Cbld of the past
several months, it came as a decided
relief. Buyers continue to throng the
city, while other visitors have been
here in usual numbers.
"Among the prominent Carolinian
in New York this week was CP.
Hamme, well known business man of
Wilmington, who told of the growth
of the Eastern Carolina town recent
ly and who predicted that it would
soon become a national city.
" 'Although Wilmington is one of
the largest commercial cities of . the
State, it is awakening to its possibili
ties as a national city, said Mr.
Hamme. 'To that end its resources
are being employed to help build the
fleet of wooden ships needed by un
cle Sam to successfully prosecute the
war. The fishing industry, which is
so important in our section, is break
me all its past records. Thousands
of barrels of fish are being caught
daily. The fisherman is an ancient
character bufe his now achieving a
reputation of helping to conserve pre
cious foodstuffs, The dredging or a
deeper chan$!.,'t the ocean should
help wiimingion to reiievo -
lantic harbors of their shipping bur
dens. Capital has interested itself
upon the subject and negotiations
are progressing that may make new
history for the eastern part of Caro
lina. It is proposed that Wilming
ton become the terminus of certaii
South America' transportation lines.
To this end the packing interests
have built a number of substanjil
warehouses that can be used for mer
chandise. To a city that has been
self-satisfied, ' marking time indeSnite
ly, the quickening impulse of sudden
development has arrived. It has re
vitalized the whole community.
Where such a spirit abounds It simply
follows that it maKes an admirable

SERVED TWO WARRANTS.
J. M. Thompson Charged With Float
Ing a Worthless Check.
A warrant charging the passing of
a worthless check was served on J.
M. Thompson, white, this morning
by Deputy Sheriff J. J. Rackley, and
he was being detained at the sheriff's
office this morning while seeking to
arrange his bond. The warrant
which alleges that a worthless check
for $36 was passed, was sent here
from Chadbourn, Columbus county
for service. Thompson had been
employed at a local garage and was
found there this morning by the dep
uty sheriff, although it was under
stood that he resigned his work sev
Also a warrant charging Paul Tay
lor, colored, with disorderly conduct
on the public road, was served by
Deputy Rackley. Taylor has a case
in Recorder's court today and just as
quickly as that is disposed of he will
be arraigned on the newer charge.
MEET TOMORROW NIGHT.
DOG PROBLEM IS
Extermination of Worthless
Cur Considered by Health
NO ACTION WAS
Not a Police Job City Attorney
Ruark Says May Swear
in Members of Sani
Consideration and discusion of the
dog was one of the features of yes
terday afternoon's regular monthly
meeting of the Board of Health and
while no action was taken looking to
ward the banishment of the cur from
the streets, the board found it neces
sary to pass out a check for $50 to bo
used in sending the small son of Mr.
N. F. Hanchey, to Raleigh for the Pas
teur treatment, the result of bite
from a dog infected with rabies, the
consensus of opinion being that it
would be equaly as cheap and more
satisfactory to send the boy to Ral
eigh than to send there for the virus
for treatment of his injuries. The
interpretation of the law of City At
torney Ruark, according to Dr. R. B.
Slocum, acting ealth officer, was
that enforcement of the ordinance re
quiring dogs to be restrained or muz
zled was not a duty of the police but
strictly a health measure to be at
tended to by the department, and it
was suggested that the sanitary po
lice be sworn in as special officers
and armed for the purpose of exterm
inating the worthless cur. Action of
this nature, however, was not taken.
Arrangement of the work of the
nurses makes it possible for the
board's . nurse to confine her activi
ties very largely among school chil
dren; the two nurses supported by
the King's Daughters to look after the
indigent poor and the nurse support
ed jointly by the Red Cross and Met
ropolitan Life Insurance Company to
look after tubercular patients.
Mr. James E. Holton, superintend
ent of streets, was before the board
and was complimented in no uncer
tain manner for the splendid service
he had rendered in cleaning up the
city, there being absolutely no crit
icism to make of his work from any
Daily conferences are being held by
Dr. Slocum, Chairman W. A. McGirt,
and Dr. Arnold Stovall, county phy
sician, relative to health work, Dr,
Slocumb advised the board. It was
also ordered that bids be asked for
the summer uniforms of members of
the sanitary force, decision having
been reached by the men that they
will wear blue this season rather than
the near khaki as in the past. Month
ly reports were submitted.

three out of five games of volleyball
on the "Y" court, broke their long
chain of defeats at the hand of the
clergy and left the "Y" building all
smiles smiling because they had ac
complished that which the opposition
thought impossible. Four of the five
games were unusually stiff, the excep

business men grabbing a 15 to 7 de
