Why DiU He Marry So noon?
What right has the church over
the marital relations of a preacher?
is a question that is troubling the
Virginia Methodist Conference.
Froai the debate, which we publish
below, it lipped that a young
Methodist preacher has shocked
some of the older brethren by get
ting married within two months
after haying joined the Conference:
The debate was t.3 follows;
When the seme cf Rev. T'lomus
E Johnson, of Rappahsnuock, wa3
reached, quite a warm and unusual
discussion arose. Mr. Johnson re
ceived his itinerant orders jast a
ye-ir ago, and in two or three months
was married. Dr. Whitehead brought
the matter to the attention of the
conference, 83jicg that it was a
serious matter for a young man to
eater the ministry in that way, and
immediately afterward take upon
himself an additional burden and
expense. Tne doctor thought Mr.
Johnson should be called upm by
the conference to explain w hy lie
married so soon after entering the
ministerial work. Dr. Whi-.ebead
said he had heard of a m :n's taking
a wife unto himself w thin a year
under such circumstances, but that
th 8 case v,as very unusual. Nothr
ing of the kind htd occurred before
in the hisiory of the Virginia Con
ference. Presidicg E:der Watts, of Mr.
Johnson's distric, defended the
voting prea"hor, eit'ut that he should
not be held accountable to the c:n-fereuc-j

Dr. Peterson replied ty saving
that the conference was wasting
time in talking about a ase when
all the talking in creation couldn't
change the facts or make the man
aoytuing other than a manied mau.
Rev. Dr. Clarke referred to
Shukeeneare's maxim 'Loye is a
piece of uaanity," and in'unaied
that when one of Cupid's darts
pierced a youog man, he would nM
stand upon whether or not he was ja
minister of the uospel or an ordinary
citizen. . "
JW. Dr. Tillett said he thought
Dr. Whitehead had entirely misled
the point in this cas . Ir. was, he
went on, whether or not Mr. John
son's dnties as itinerant worker of
the conference had been interfered
with. ., As the young preacher in
quest'on was not present, his Pre
siding Elder spoke for him, saying
that Mr. Johnson had done faithfnl
and efficient work, acd had himself
borne the additional expense neces
sary on account of h s marriage. The

young cs&a would be abie to render
just as good service to the church in

His excellency, Gov. Eliaa Carr,
yesterday issued the following
Thanksgiving Proclamation :
The people of North Carolina
have much for which to bo thankful
to Almighty God in the year which
has--just past. The earth has
brought forth abundantly of the
food products in response to our la
bors, the prices of raw materials
have advanced, industrial progress
has been awakened in our midst and
the future look brighter than the
past few years of disaster and want.
Our people should be thankful
for -the - blessing3 vouchsafed to
them, and, in grateful remembrance
of His goodness and in obedience to
our laws and the time-honored cus
tom of our forefathers, devote one
day of the year to His service. . , .
Therefore, I, Elias Catr.Governor
of the State of North Carolina, do
hereby appoint Thursday, the 2Sth
day of November, 1895, as a
day of solemn and public
Thanksgiving to God for past
blessings, and supplications for
His continued kindness and care
over us as a State and nation. -
I earnestly request every citizen
of this great Commonwealth to lay
aside his usual business, assemble
either at the churches or around the
hreside, and make tHs annual fes
tival a day of prayer and thanksgiv
ing. Let not the day be devoted to
amusements, but with grateful
hearts . give praise to God for the
preservation of our liberties and
for the- advancement of our nation
in prosperity and greatness.
This State has ever been the home
of freedom and the abiding-place of
a virtuous and noble people- Let
the day not pass without acknowl
edgment of all these blessings; and
let us remember in our prayers and
offerings the charitable institutions
of the Etate, tha wounded and
needy soldier, the orphan, tho poor
and afflicted, mid, by substantial
sivi g, show forth the that-kfulness
of our hearts.
In witness whereof, I have hereunto

engaged in an intereBing discussion
when the train stopped here.
They were talking of cotton and
the possibilities of its reaching ten
cents before next year. They dif-

here there were two bets up. One
was that January futures would
reach ten cents in New York before
the first of January. Another was
that the staple would sell for nine
cents in the Southern cities before
Decemoer sets in. The farmers in

betting on high cotton will win.

Proposed to Three in One Day.
A yonng gentleman in the city re
cently went out iu No. 1 township,
where he spent the day. - He put up
at a prominent farmer's home and
found himBelfin the midft cf a
throng of beautiful young women.
The young fellow became somewhat
confused before leaving, having
found ihe young ladies so agreeable
that he proposed to three of them,
all of whom accepted.
The proposition was of quite a
different nature from what many
would infer. It was that if the
young ladies would bring him a
bushel of scalybarks, he would go
beyond the market price and pay
them SI. 50 for them. He was very
much surprised when several days
later the ladies entered his place of
business, bringing with them the
soalybarks. The young fellow was
embarrassed, but paid the price,
whereupon the ladies thanked him
for his special fay r.
Hews from Stanly.
Mr. John Teeter, a gocd farmer
of Big Lick, Stanly county, was in
the city. He reports that in his
section everybody is feeling good
oyer the bountiful crops and the
rise in the price of cotton. Mr.
Teeter runs a saw mill and is pro
gressing in that busiuesB, as he does
at farraicg. He states that a mob
of one hundred strong went to Albe
marie Tuesday night last to take
charge of "Dr. White," who has
gained considerable notoriety within
the past few days. He learned this
from a friend after his arrival here,
when he got his first intelligence of
the affair, although he liyea withiD

Guard at the Jail.
Sometime after night fall Thum
day evening Sheriff Sims received
information that a mob of several
hundred men were neading for thia
city for the purpose of lynching tha
man, wbite, who is held for au out
rage upon poor unfortunate Sallie
Barbee, whereupon the Sheriff
promptly prepared for their arrival
by stationing a guard at tne jai'.
No one appeared to molest the jail,
however, and at 4 o'clock th s morns
ing the guard was dismissed.
"Dr- White" showed no signs of
fears, and in his warm cell enjoys
quite and repose and the pleasure
of Btnoking cigarettes. Hia comforts
and safety are well considered, and
it is thought that there is no danger
of an uprising now, for the chacce3
for lynching, it is said, were afford
ed the mob before his perliminary
trial on Wedneslay.
The guard that would haye
resisted and routed the supposed
mob was composed of the following
