.The fact that Rev . J . 0- Rowe,
D. D., presiding elder of the Sal
isbury dittriot M. E. churchTwill
be moved to other parts by the
next Conference is a matter for
general regret. Dr. Rowe has
been tireless in his efforts for the
upbuilding of the Kingdom of
Ohrist and the church and he 1 is
beloved by all good people.
Thb Watchman is reliably in
formed that P. B. Btard, Fred V.
IfcCanless and P. A. Hartmsn,
county commissioners, have form
ed a partnership and have opened
a quarry on Mr. Hartman's Jand
to furnish the granite for the new
oourt house. Is this true? We
await a denial, or .will assume
that it is correct and that this ex
plains the zeal of certain commi
ioneri for a new court house. .

cessity to issue bonds, for bond
issues are exceedingly expensive

The Government now has in its
vault gold to the amouut of $1,
221,000,000. A large part of this is
in coin, or bullion held against
geld certificates scattered through
the country. OF what is known as
"free gold" there is in the '"treas
ury probably $200,030,000. Under
anv adequate banking system this
free gold" would be at the seiv-
ice of the business of the country
If there were a stress ard it was
deoided that the government
should oome to the rescue the on
ly means of utilizing this hoard
would be for the Secretary of the
Treasury to deposit it in the
banks-. Why should it it not
be at the service of the
country at all times? National
Citizen b' (Bankers') League. .
Because it is not the govern
ments' business to furnish banks,
more than other enterprises, with
money to do business with . The
government should control the
money for the people and not al
low the banks to control it for
any reason. The present condi
tion in this respect is better for
all concerned, including the banks.
