The New York Time originated, we
believe, the chargu that Mr. Payne was
elected ia Ohio to tho U. S: Senate to
succeed Mr. Pendleton by tho Stand
aid Oil Company. Tho Times is alto
publican paper and by birth, education,
instinct and breeding is bound to lie
about a Democrat whenever It get an
opportunity. It is cot ccceasarr, bowx
ever, for Democratic papers to 'take
up this lie &t second band
and endorse it. The truth U that Mr.
Payne has no connection, whatever,
with the Standard Oil Company. Mr.
Payne has been a life-long Democrat
and was la harness when Mr. Pendle
ton was a mere colt in tho political
Ce!d. lie is trustworthy and sincere,
io proof ot which we point not only to
his election by a Democratic Legisla
ture but to the detractions or him with
which the Republican press is now
temicg. The mos significant point in
his election, however, is this. The

tho olof two-lory frame dwelling on
the S. corucr of Castle and Surry
street was discovered to be on fire io
tbc Kastcro portion ot f the second
story, and although the alarm was im
mediately given and tbc fire department
was promptly on hand, the ffamcs had
made such headway that they could
not be gotten under control until tbc
house had become a mere shell. Sirs.
Fryar, a widow lady, with a family ot
several children, occupied the first floor
of the house, while Mr. Henry Arthur
and wife occupied lie second floor
The two latter bad left their rooms and
had locked the door, and aa the fire was
discovered in that portion of the house,
it is not known how it originated. Mr.
and Mrs. Arthur lost everything save
the clothing they had on at the time.
Mrs. Fryar aaved a portion of berfcoods,
but the loss was unfortunate and severe
tor both families. The building was
owned by, Mr. Richard A. Price, and
was insured to the amount of $500 in

The audience at the Library1 Rooms
last night to hear Rev. Dr. Milburn
was much larger than that at his first
lecture. His subject (was "General
Thomas J. (Stonewall) Jackson. " a
name sacred in every Southern hear1
and one of the most conspicuous in
American history. In fact, so far as
his military career daring the late war
is concerned, he stands as one ot the
most prominent military commanders
of any age and of any country. Of this,
however, the speaker had comparative
ly little to say, but gave a history ot his
ancestry, his humble beginning ia life,
his unostentatious.reservetl manner, his
early struggles, his eminent and devot
ed piety and his rigid ob3verance duty
under any and all circumstances. The
Uecture abounded ia graphic descriptions
and beautiful illustrations of the life or
the remarkable man and glowed with
