Dur ham was to have played in New Born the first three days of this week. Tfco Durham IrntmiiifT nnf if leaves only, three teams in the League Greensboro, Raleigh and New Bern. It may be that Wilson will take Durham's place in the State League. The Durham club is heavily in debt, and but for tbe fact that two gentlemen generously went down into their pockets for $500 each, tbe club could hardly have been Itept going as long as it has Carries God's Message. A trunk, that was a veritable preacher of Gpd'e word, was seen at the Southern depot Saturday after noon by a Sun reporter.

ALIEGED LYNCHER JAILED. Tom Spainell, White Man 35 Years of Age, Taken on a Bench Warrant Is.ued by Judge Shaw. Sausbuky, July 13. The first arrest on tbe charge of participating in the lynching pf the negro boys, Harrison and James tiulespie, the murderers of Miss Cornelia Benson, took place at 10 o'clock last night under a bench warrant issued by Judge Shaw for Tom Sparnell,, a bar tender of this city. Sparnell is a married man and is 35 years of age. When arrested he offered to give bond, but Sheriff Julian neces sarily refused to permit him to do so prior to bis preliminary examina tion and be was accordingly com mitted to jail. The examination will be held by Judge Shaw at 9 o' clock in the morning, with Solicitor Hammer also present. Fifteen sub poenas have been issued for witness es, including two Bent to Gold Hill, which was the home of the prisoner before bis coming here several years ago. Sparnell claims that he will be able to prove an unassailable ali bi. Solicitor Hammer, however, in the course of the investigation of the lynching which he has conduct ed, as required by the act of 1893 for the punishment of lynchers, has already examined the witnesses who have been summoned and hence it may be assumed that he is in pos session of evidenoe of a direct and positive character. Neither be nor Judge Shaw has yet arrived here, both being expected on the early morning trains. Special to Char- otte Observer. On a Few Days' Trip. Dr. N. M Johnson and children, Misses Mary and Kate and Master Eric, left this morning on the 7 o' clock Norfolk and Western train for trip to the north.
