Dr Bailey invoked God's blessing on
the orphan children, the asylum and
the principal and teachers. He pray
ed that it .might have a warm place
in the hearts, not only of Masons,but
of all the churches.
Capt AHA Williams niade an ad
dress of welcome on I behalf of the
Masons. He expressed his pleasure
at the presence "of . so many distin
guished gentlemen. , He said the oc
casion was an inspiring one. He re
turned the thanks of the Masons, of
the people of - Oxford, of Dr. Dixon,
the superintendent of the asylum.and
of the 180 little orphans. He . ex-
Sre8se 1 his regret at the absence of
en RB Vance, the orator of the oc
casion, but said disappointment nev
er chilled the heart of a Mason. .
t : Grand Master Fab. H. Busbee said
he was sorry for Gen. Vance, who
had lost the opportunity of address
ing such a. spleodid audience. Mr.
Busbee said it had been determined to
have the address on the formation
and purpose of the industrial school
delivered now. He introduced as tho
orator on th subject Oapt. Oct.
Coke. . -:-ydu -y'r c' -,.,'
Uapt. Coke spoke of the noble part
the asylum was playing in the State.
Particularly did he dwell on the in
dustrial work to D9 today inaugurated
by the laying of the cbpnerr-stone of
thig industrial building. He warmly
antl in glowing language complin
mented the Masons of North Carolina
for their singleness of purpose, gen
erosity of heart "and constant zeal in
aiding this asylum. He made a for
mal plea for industrial education as a
necessity for North Carolina. Labor
and letters; he asserted, made up the
greatness of a State,' . .'. t
Mr. Fab. H. Busbee" introduced
Got. Scales , saying that he foiind
special pleasure in snowing the Gov
ernor, the orphan asylum and its
management. ... : i-ii:
Gov. Scales said this' was in " veiy
truth a proud day for North Carolina,
for the Masonic order, for the people
of all. the State. - He said the State
had established bv -Dublin- tnTAt.iAii
three lunatic asylums and two deaf
but not least, has .nmi fJ
orphan asylum. He felt warranted
8rins that, for the orphan asylum
the State would do much more. He
- -'o,lwno naa started this
noble chanty; jn their wisdom and
benevolence, and 'who had so man
aged it as to make the State see its
true -interest and co-operate in the
work of maintaining it. He spoke of
the exceeding value of industrial edu
cation and of its direct and practical
purpose here. He said the orphan
asylum was deen oat 'in' tha
heartsand had the aid of the churches
'K?fPle. the 8tate- He declared
u hl8 i.1 w8 a ' Vroni day
for this charity and for every
true son of the State. This laying of
the corner stone of a department of
labor, the first step of that kind taken
in North Carolina, marked a lie w
era in progress in the old State which
was now in - thp fmoft i
aoutbern sisters in matters of 1 public
education and advancement." i He de
sired to see conptanf. aid ai-
Wtem; to see it enlarged so that its
walls would give a glad -shelter to
every orphan in the State. He asked
tor. the institution i the heartiW
pecuniarily; and he pledged good men
every where -for its continued ; ad
vancement. In conclusion his excel
lency expressed his pleasure at being
present, his satisfaction at the sight
of such an audience. He pledged
his heartiest aid to the work of ad
vancing every interest of the asylum,
and called upon God to bless it
bountifully. . .
AirandMaster .Busbee, on the art
of the Masons, returned thanks to
Gov. Scales for his words of encour
agement and good cheer. !-' r--
At 12:30 the nnnnlrirxv An14 j

ing to he much' family; fighting be

7 The caucus last night put the whole
subject of the order- of business in
the hands of Speaker Carlisle," and
Messrs. Morrison and .RandaU. Some
gentleman think they will be able to
shorten the discussion. But the chief
difficulty is not in keeping out con
tests over considerations, but Dre-
venting protracted debates. This
latter matter is not in the power of
the special committee..
unce oefore today I saw Reed: of
afne, the shrewd Republican leadn
er knocked out; but " MtMillin's
point did not provoke so much laugh
ter at Reed's expense as Weaver's
did today.' The Maine member twit
ted the same gentleman, McMillin, of
Tennessee, with going back ini hi
silver history to Abraham; and said
something about his being a descend.
ant ot Abraham. Weaver came , to
the rescue with the remark that the
gentleman from Maine was supposed
to be a descendant of Ishmael. When;
Reed could catch bis breath and res
cover his original pale countenance,
he attempted a feeble reply, but the
Joke had gone against him. ;-;
When the sundry ciyil bill had
reached, in the course of its consid
eration this afternoon, the clause ap
propriating $25,000 for the secret or
detective fund of the internal rev
enue; : office Mr. Reid offered j 1 an
amendment wiping out the whol
and supplemented it by a speech in
which he had read some blank forms
Of arrest, signed by the superior and
sent to the inferior or deputy to be
executed. Mr. Reid spoke very ef
fectively of the odious character of
the detective system, and the- desire
of the people in his State to . have it
auuusnea. ue. was followed in the
same Btrain by ; Messrs. Gibson, of
West Virginia, and Mills; of Texas.
The latter denounced the system in
the fiercest of terms. Among other
speeches On that side was one by Col.
Cabell, of Virginia. . ..
- During Mr. Hiscock's speech a col
loquy occurred between him and Mr.
Reid, of North Carolina'. most of
which was lost to. the press gallery.'
Randall replied to Grosvenor, Re
publican, claiming that the laws wejee
executed. He voted against , the
proposition to wipe out the detective
fund. was stricken out, however,
by 7ft to, 61 in committee fcf : the
