Now as to the books, we desire
to say further, that while the

presumed to select the books,
they have failed to make proper
arrangements for the satisfactory
distribution of them. Many peo

Lexington Baptists Expel Former Pastor J
Lexington, , Nov. "14. At the
regular monthly business meeting
of the, Lexington Baptist Church
last night,- former Pastor John
Thomas Jenkins Was expelled from
church membership, after being
denied a letter of dismissal, for
which he had applied. The ac

a sensational story that has been
kept; pretty well under cover or
the past three or four months.
Mr. Jeukins resigned his pastor
ae here very suddenly last July
and has .since moved to Kansas
City, Mo. Letters of dismissal
had been granted to members of
his family who had belouged to
the local church, bus his!own re
quest for a letter had been denied
once or twice, owing to the fact
that he was notconsidered iu go'C
standing with this church.
The cause of Mr. Jenkins' undo
ing, it is alleged, was a lette.
written by him to a young wo
man in New York City. Thi
etter was improperly addressed
and could not be delivered
Bari:;g no return card it was sent
to'tbe:dead letter offhe. Exam
ination there revealed no nn c r
sender, but it happened that M:
Jenkins had enclosed inthn letter
to the woman a letter from one of
the Baptist leaders of the State,
commending bis work here The
dead letter offiioe forwarded -the
etter to this Baptist leader and
in tnis way tne information
reached the members of the local.
church. He was summon'sd' be-
ore a body of Baptist members iu
Raleigh last June, charged with
bis wrong-doing and rcqited
hot only tolgive up his work bf
but to quit. the Baptist ministry.
This he agreed to do and his re
iguation followed. At the tis?-3
comparatively few of bis members
knew of w and all were asioB'oded

pulsion was five to one in favor of

Concord, Nov. 15, Since
the election of a Democratic
President there has been
much speculation here as to
who would be a candidate
for postmaster at the local
postoffice. No announcement
has been made by any candK
date but for the past several
days the triends of J. B. Slier
rill, editor ot The Concord
Daily Tribune and Concord
Times, have been advocating
his candidacy. Mr. Sherrill
has made no announcement
that he will make an effort to
secure the plum but it is
generally understood that he
will be a candidate. Mr.
Shirrill was postmaster here
under Cleveland's second ad
ministration. dead oapital. There is here a mat
ter of several hundred dollars with
no interest. Don't jump on your
bookseller for any shortage or
change of books there may be.
He can't help it. The truth of the
matter is he is simply keeping
books for accommodation. Now
all this should be different. The
State should arrange with the sev
