Our last issue contained an account
of the meeting at Morganton lasi week
of the editors of the State in conven

kind, progressive and hospitable people
of Morganton, but cannot find language
to do them justice.
The business of the convention was

middle-aged ones were carried back to
their happy teens, and the young fel

At the banquet speeches were made
by several of Morganton's citizens and
a number of editors.
The reception given by Hon. John
II. Pearson, Mayor, at his elegant and
palatial residence was the handsomest
ever tendered the North Carolina Press.
The banquet supper was sumptuous
and elegant, and the ball was the
grandest ever seen in Western Xorth
The editors were driven to all inter
esting points about the city, among
them the Western Hospital, where they
were pleaatly entertained by Dr. Mur
phy and assistants.
