is really a distinction without a

According to this view every man
that has a dollar is a creditor. The
dollar he holds ia the evidence that
he has extended a credit. He has
performed a seryice for which he

Bat the creditor is not satisfied
with simply holding the dollar. It
is customary with creditors o re
quire some security, some guaranty
that the debt will be paid. In case
of a priyate claim the security is
usually the signature of some relia
ble person or a mortgage of some
kind. In case of : a private claim
the creditor's evidence is the prom
issory note, and the creditor looks to
the parties giving the note, the
principal and endorsers, lor payment.
The principle does not differ
materially when applied to money.
The evidence in each case is of the
same nature, but when' collection is
made, in case of the private claim,
iu teres t is charged, whilst in case of
money, interest is not charged, the
greenback, the silyer do'lar, the gold
dollar, each being taken up at its

Eev. WHL McLaurin had been
asked for an appointment on Sun
day last. He consented to preach
on July 18th, Thursday night, at
ratterson:s mills, where a room had
been fitted up for Sunday school and
religious worship, in which all de
nominations, it was understood, were
to take part. Rey. McLaurin, not be
ing well, invited Hev. M A Smith, of
Forest Hill M. E. church, to ac
company him and preach for him.
After arriving on the ground they
went to the house of Mr. Henry

fore the service was over. Mr.
Green was asked to pray. In the
course of his prayer, haying given
thanks to the Lord for the place and
opportunity of meeting together
that night, made use of the follow.
"CJLord, thou knowest that these
men cometh here to create disturb
ance and division ; let them be diss
appointed and ashamed that they
may not retnrn here ; and may go to
their homes like whipped dogs with
their tails between their legs ; O,
Lord, give them grace to go back and
preach the same things, with ear
nestness, to those men who are
working the poor, pale-faced chil
dren in the' factories and keeping
them in ignorance and grinding
them down dayjand night. O, Lord
thou knowest that we have one good
school, bnt the Methodist denomi
nation is seeking to break our in- j
stitution down, and to keep these
people in ignorance, and that these
men haye been actuated by the devil
to come here without invitation or
authority and use oar song books
and place of worship and to preach

After he had concluded his
prayer, Bey. Smith explained that he
was there only by invitation of his
friend, Eev. McLaurin, that he Lad
simplj tried to preach a plain gos

than to do the people good, and
disclaimed any intention whateyer
to preach a denominational sermon ;

Green in the presence ef- the1 congre
gation if he had not met -biiB.iure'
cently, told him about the Sunday
School at the mill, and asked him if
he would not come out and preach
for them sometime and that he (Mr,
Smith) had told him he would.
Green acknowledged the invitation
Out said that he was not ready for
him that night.
Bey. McLaurin stated that he had
gone there by injitation of some of
the citizens of that (Patterson's)
town , with the understanding that
all denominations were at liberty to
preach tnere. He stated that he
asked Hey. Smith to accompany and
preach for him, and in reference to
the 8tatement"ofMr. Green that the
Methodists were trying to destroy
their schools, he would say that it
was utterly false bo far as he was
concerned or involved and that he
had preached a broad-guaged religion
to his people, showing them that
they must love all people without
regard to denominational linep.
that he had sought to keep down all
friction or antagonism between his
people and Mr. Green and that the
charge aboye referred to eame with
ill-grace from Mr. Green, after such
consideration at his hands. He said
to Green that he defied him or any
one else to repeat a single word or
sentence that he had uttered to cause
antagonism or disagreement amorjg
Mr. Green then said that if he
had unjustly offended the gentlemen
either in his prayer or remarks that
he would be willing to get down
upon his knees and ask them their
pardon, if necessary, and stand
ing near Mr. Smith he asked him
(Smith) to give him (Green) his
band. Mr. Smith said: "It is owing
to what you want me to give you my
hand on ; if you want me to give ay
hand ou that prayer, I can't and
wont do it."
Mr. Green replied' : "I want you
to give me your hand as a man try
ing to live a Christian."
Both Revs. Smith and McLaurin
gladly gave him their hands upon
that proposition with the distinct
understanding that they could not
endorse hia prayer.
Several who were present, offered
to testify to Green's shameful con
duct at the meeting. They heard
thia article read and offered to make
oath that it was absolutely correct.
Going home from the meeting, a
large party discussed the matter and
agreed that the Times and The
Standard, in their articles, were
vindicated by Green's own acts and
words. To use their words : "He
was exactly sized up."

man now or unina urove, out a
former resident of this place, met
with quite a severe and painful ao-
cident in the Patterson cotton mills
at that place seyeral days ago by
getting one hand masked up in the
achinery. We hope his band will
soon be all right. We hear some
good news, alrto, concerning ' Mr.
Robinson, but we are not at liberty
to tell it at present.
Uieh Point Team Dnbaed.
The Higbt Point baseball team,
which has been the "cracked up"
team of the State for a year got a

ftStirs'' the admifiigq.qt.i.hfl whole
layout of WfWsit'wib'eisI' .
ing wae done oui:
yiflitme team was down iu ihe month
from the start, as Harold ShemweU, "
Chapel Hill's crack pitcher was wild
and his assistant, Walter Woodson, '"
behind the bat, was entirely too
light. None of the fielding "Pngs"
had a gooa nose for the ball except
Master J Brown, the baby short'
stop. He made 8ome excellent plays
and deseryea special mention. Master
H Rufty, who held down first, goC
one three bagger on little Joe Fisher,
who did some star playing and won a
reputation for his team.
Caldwell played short stop for onr
boys. It is useless to comment on
his playing except he deserved a
good pounoing for blundering once
into Montgomery's territory, causing
an error and letting the "Pugs"
chase in a few.
Joe Fieher and Frank Brumley did
the battery work nicely, while Rich
Beed assisted them no little by his
gooa judgement and scientific play
ing on first. The "Stara" knocked
the -Pugs" all to pieces from the
beginning. Beard did some good
fielding for the home team, making
several good running catches.
E Woodson, who played tbird,
made one beautiful running catch
and accordingly got tbe full benefit
of the grand stand. Beard and
Caldwell, "Stars," took a sneak on
the "Pugs" for one base each. The
stealing waa cleverly done.
uur nttie kids puTCald well and
Montgomery on the team because
Salisbury brought with them a man,
bearing the reputation of never be
ing struck out and one that had
gained great notoriety in base ball
A special feature of the game was
Caldwell's home run it waa a
dandy hit, bringing in three men.
But the Salisbury boys were gentle-v
and manly little fellows, and of
course showed great nerve in under
taking to beat our "Stars." It was
a pleasant game to witness, and it is
said by every man that umpire W W
Morris was fair in every decision.
The "Pup" did no growling and of
course the "Stars" could not fall.
The score :
Siliabury 1 0 5 0 0 0 4 0 IP.
Concord 3 4 0 71 6 526.
