from thi3 place the delegates were
distributed to the homes of the citi
zens which are Jto bo the delegates
"homos" while in Newberne. About
eighty of the delegates have arrived
and a few more are expected to-day.
The hospitable people of the city
have opened their doors with a wide
welcome fo that tho number of
"homos" provided is .in excess of
the number of delegates attending.
This is the eighty-third annual ses
Kion of the Synod of North Carolina.
The first meeting was held at 8
o'clock last night. Divine services
came first. Rev. Eugene Daniel, of
lialeigh, one of the ablest members
in the State, as retirintr moderator,
preached the opening sermon. It
was a masterly discourse on "Inspi
ration." The first portion of the
sermon dispelled false ideas that are
held to some extent as to what the
inspiration of the Bible consists of;
the latter portion pointed out tho
truth in regard to this important
subject- Running all through the
sermon was & strong frame work of
proof that the wnole Bible is incon-
trovertibly true and fully inspired.
The sermon was based on II, Timo
thy, 3: IG. "All scripture is given by
the inspiration of Uod."
Alter toe sermon an impressive
communion service was held, which
was largely joined in by members of
other denominations, the various
churches of the city being well rep
resented in the congregation. Rev.
L. B. Turnbull, of Durham, reai
from the New Testament the author
ity for the ordinance; Rev. i. W
bmith, of Greensboro, consecrate a
the elements of bread and wine by
prayer. Eight other members of
the Synod receiving the bread ami
wine from these two ministers then
distributed them among the comma
The devotional exercises being
over the meeting was called to order
far.bxmnestt and a quorum officially
found to be present by calling the
roll. The election of officers wai
deferred until this (Wednesday)
morning and erder of work was
partially decided upon. It was
decided to begin the session at 9:30
a. m., transact business until 12 in.,
then have an hour of divine worship
and then take a two hours' recess
for dinner, reassembling at 2 p. m.
and again mcetiog at 8. p. m. At
this last meeting reports on foreign
mif8ioD8 will be heard and several
addresses will be made.
Before adjournment Tuesday night
Rev. 0. L. Ley burn, the new pator
of the Newberne rresbyterian
church, was formerly presented to
the Synod, of which he had not yet
become a member, he having moved
here frem Boonville, Missouri, and
this being the first meeting of the
Synod since his coming. Dr. Ley
burn is not only a thoughtful and
scholarly minister of pleasing and
instructive pulpit utterance, but he
is also of a friendly warm-hearted dis
position and be possesses a practical
turn of mind. Though it is yet less
than two weeks since he took charge
here, he is clearly j making strong
friends, and his pastorate in this
city is confidently expected to be a
successful one, spiritually, helpfu
and blessed to the present members
of the church and to all others who
attend upon his ministry.
Rev. A. D. McClure, of Wilming
ton, was elected moderator.
Rev. P. R. Law and Rev. W. R.
McClelland were elected clerks.

There is no doubt that the pros
pect for business ha3 preatlv improv
ed since the election; it was to be
expected whichever way the election
turned. Never in the hietory of this
country has there been a
Presidential election which did
not disturb business Public
questions in which differing fi
nancial policies are at stake always
asect tne minds of men and busi
ness . men will stand still un
til such election is on In
aeeu, oeioro tne issues are raue up
business men halt, go slow and
throw out safeguards so as to be
sure whichever party may win. This
always makes a stagnation in man
ufactures, in trade and natural bus
iness. When the question is on tax
ation wherein the tariff becomes an
issue, that has always affected bus
iness. The importers are in fave,
as a general thing, of low tariffs or
no tariffs. Manufacturers, as a
general thing, are in favor of hi?h
tariffs, and trusts are always in fa
vor of high tariff. It helps them to
keep the trices of their products up
to the tariff limit.
It is very natural in the campaign
just tended, whro the money ques
tion wa the vital isue, that busi
ness should bi dull and almost at a
standstill. Each party claimed that
if it was bUfcessbful business would
be better, prics would be enhanced,
and that more mea would be employ
ed. Of course each party crave uif
fercnt reasons. The Republicans
claimed that if they were successful
the gold and the greenbacks that
had been hoarded would be brought
out and put into circulation. The
Democrats claimed that if they were
successful more silver would be is
sued, and that money as well as the
gold and greenbacks that were in
hiding, would all go into circula
tion, and consequently that higher
prices would be maintained, lo
certain extent both contestants were
right. Although gold and green
backs are coming into circulation,
the banks are paying out gold just
as they pay out other money, so one
claim certainly of the Republicans
is now proved true. Their own con
fidence is restored. That mills wil
be started up, that there will be
much greater volume of business
done in the nexttwelvo months than
has been done in the last twelve
months no doubt. Everybody has
decided to go to work, to do busi
ness, and to mako money if it be
Of course, it yet remains to be
seen how long a large and increas
ing volume of business can be car
ried on without an increase in the
volume of money We firmly be
lieve that the ultimate, result will
be a greater demand for currency, a
greater demand for honest money,
and when this pressure becomes
very great that the party in power
will conclude to meet the demands
of the people. Just how this will be
done no one at present can foresee.
That it will be a necessity imposed
upon the incoming administration
there is no earthly doubt. It will be
found that there is not gold enough
to eo round. It will be found that
the people are right in their
demands for the free coinage of sil
ver in order to maintain prices and
to have money sufficient to carry on
the business of the country and to

Washington, Nov. 11. In his an
nual report to the Secretary of War
Maj. General Miles, commanding
the army, says that fortunately dur
ing the year the army has been call
ed upon only to a limited extent to
act either against hostile Indians or
against bodies of men engaged in
violating the laws of the United
States, or international treaty obli
gations. The personnel of the army
was never in better condition, the
percentage of violations of discipline
has been exceedingly small and the
standard ot enlisted men is constant
ly improving. The care exercised
in obtaining suitable material is
shown by the fact that of 49,240 ap
plicants for enlistment during the
year, only 7,465 were accepted as
Gen. Miles again devotes a large
portion of bis report to the consider
ation of questions of coast defence and
he renews forcibly all of the recom
mendations on that subject made in
his former reports.
He says the appliances of war
have undergone so great a change
in thirty years as to make it imper
atively necessary to change the en
tire character of our fortifications
and their armament as well. The
estimates that God. Miles says are im
peratively required to be allotted
for the next year for the work of the

If you wish to send a letUr to any
part of this country, or eves to any
part ot Canada or Mexico, all you
have to do ia to put a two-cent stamp
ou it. "CncleS&m" doa the rest.
The two cents pay the cost of the
eerviee and "Uncle Sam' asks ro
profit. But if you want to send your
message by wire, that ia a very dif
ferent matter. Then you have to
goto n private company, submit to
thtir trais tnd pay their price.
which always includes profit to rri-
vf .te individuals and interest on fic
titious capital.
It is a package instead of a message
that you want to eend, then you
must go to an express company, and
the cost includes profit to pxivate
individuals and interest on fictitious
capital, and if the package has to be
transferred from one company to
another in transit, there is an ex
tra charge for each transfer. Not
bo with a letter, for there is only one
postal company, and that is conduct
ed by Uncle Sam, and not for pri-
vat profit or interest on fictitious
capital, but for the s-ervice of all
the people.
If you want to go yourself, the
conditions are even worse than send
ing a telegram or an express pack
age. If you agree to go and return
by the same route within a given
time (generally a short time) you are
charged a certain price. If you
wish to stay longer you are charged
more; if you wish to stop on the
way, you are charged more. Trav
ellers frequently have to return be
fore theywish, else their ticket will
expire, a. postage stamp never ex
pires! The more we think of Uncle
Sam's way of doing things, in com
parison with the way private com
panies do. the more we are attracted
to Uncle Sam's way and the more we
wish Uncle bam would do it all.
Railroads seem to make a study
of how much tbey can hinder and
embarrass railroad travel. Judging
from how Uncle Sam carries a let
ter, we may infer that he would re
lieve railroad travel from every pos
sible inconvenience and embarrass
ment. Railroads have made
teeoie attempt to reduce inconven
iences by selling mileage books; but
they are good only on the road
issuing the same; they expire at the
end of a year and you must buy 1,000
miles at a time. If Uncle Sam
were doing it he would issue mileage
books on any of his roads and good
.until used and at a cost of about
cent a mile or less, for he would not
issue fictitious stock for the trave
ers to pay interest on. '
We can get accustomed to nearly
anything, and we are so accustomed
to the unnecessary inconveniences o
travel that few realize that there
a better way. The better way wil
never come to us without ettort on
our part. Capital will cling to prof
its, both present and prospective
whether just or unjust. It has no.
conscience. It cares all for profit
and nothing for. humanity. No in
dividual has any capital invested in
our postal system; so it is free to ex
ist for the service of a man at cost
and not for profit. Our other pub
lic utilities should be taken (on just
terms) and operated in the same

happy faculty of turning out various
orders of freaks and queer ideas,

The peculiar idea seems to have
entered the heads of the three offi
