Hill uses them to juggle with,
perverting their meaning to serve
the porpoes of a crafty politi

The Memorial volume of the Guilford
Battle Ground company is before us. It
b a grandly patriotic historical work, de
serving ot a place in the library of every
family in the Stat", but it contains one
sentence which is misleading and on that
account sadly detracts from its excel
hnce. That sentence is contained i.i the
otherwise exceedingly admirable speech
o'' ex Gov. Thos. M. Uolt, delivered on
the occasion of lhe unveiling of the Guil
ford Battle Ground monument, July 4th
1893. That sentence reads thus:
'While I was in Portsmouth the other
day walking along the streets of that city,
I saiv A monument j; muting upward to
the sky with this inscription: To, Our
Confederate Dead-' Where is one in
North Carolina ?
The plain inference from lhe wording
of the question is that there is no such
monument, while the fact is there are a
number ot such monuments in the State,
though we will not attempt to say they
are as numerons ss the heroism of our
brave soldiers would warrant. At Char

Raleigh with the committees of both
House's of Congress, tho Governor and
other officers of the State, with three cars
of distinguished friends of the dead Sen

the train passed Hickory, Morganton and
other stations, large crowds passed into
the funeral car to view the remains. Tbe

The crowds that thronged the stations
along the way to Asheville delayed the

Each hamlet added beautiful flowers
marked "From the Ladies to Our Zeb,"
and when Asheville was finajlj. reached,
aDd tbe funeral car was opened for- the
last time, it required the aid of a com

the remains from the train to the church

New Berne, N. C.
Dear Sir: Yqur letter is received and
I note what you say a'xut the represen
tations being made at New Berne, tbat
delivery of truck at Jersey City will re
sult in increased cost to shippers.
In that connection I am giad to inform
you that immediately following the visit
of the delegation ot your truck growers
to Jersey City and New York to inspect
tho facilities ot-the respective termiual
lines, a similar visit was made by the
President, Vice President and Executive
Committee of the Truck Farmers Asso
ciation of Charleston, S. C, for the pur
pose of iatisfying themselves about the
delivery of truck by tbe Penn Rail
R.ad at Jersey City.
They were shown over the same terri
tory covered by our friends when they
were there, and also had an opportunity
of conferring with some of the principal
commission merchants. When returning
home they said they were satisfied that
their interests in New Yoik would be
best protected by the Penn Rail Road
and they should not only patroi.ize tbe all
rail line but would use their influence to
have every member of their association
do the same.
AU ol the party were unanimous in the
opinion that Bay Street, Jersey City, is to
be the great market for truck at New
Many of the commission men have
openly decliued that there will be no car
tage charge from Jersey City and ship
pers will have no difficulty in having
their produce handled more advuntigc
ously at Jersey City, than it ever has been
at any of the New York piers.
Very truly yours,

Great Sorrow Over Vance's Death
Some of the Tributes of Grat
Men A Suggestion as to
A tidal wave of sorrow swept over
North Carolina when the wiles from this
city carried the announcement, the night
of the 14th "Vance is dead." I l ave
known him and loved him since early
childhood. I cannot wr.te of him this
morning. Let others voice some of the
praises to which all of his own people
will respond a hearty ' amen "
Vice-President A llai Stevenson says;
"He was one of the giandest men who
ever lived. He wa- my warm personal
Speaker Crisp say-; 'T heard of the
death of Mr. Vance with great regret. He
was a true man an I Demociat. For
many yeais he has been a prominent fig-!
ure in the Senate and country and he
always stood for the rights of the people.
His death ia a loss to the country, to tbe
party and to the people of his Slate.
Such men are rare."
Senator Ransom says: "Senator Vance
possessed very remarkable i-ndowments.
He represented subjects in large outlines
by generalities, seldom in details This
faculty of embodying and presenting
popular sentiments into proverl):al harms,
into striking- homely illustrations was
wonderful. He had cultivated it as
siduously. He was a master in that art.
He had the geuius of popularity. His
His simplicity was uniform aud ever con
spicuous Ifis humor was almost in
vincible. His sarcasm very keen and
seldom left any sting. His disposition
was so genial that it disarmed enmity.
He was almost always brief, nevr tedious.
His servioe as Governor during the war
was the never failing fountain ot Ins popu
larity. He was one of the people,
thought, felt and acted with them. His
character l'or uprightness never failed
The Senate arid Houe adjourned at
noon out of respect to his memory.
Already the politicians are speculating
as to Vance's successor in the Senate.
Some, from apparent reasons want ex
Governor Jarvis. If Jarvis is appointed
be will serve only until the expiration of
Senator Vance's term, for it is n matter
qf piain justice that llje Vy'est shoqhl pro
duce the man. The appointment of Jar.
vis gives the East two Senators. As a
North Carolinian I make this suggestion.
Let the man, who is our dead Ceasar's
known preference be his successor. S:mie
ot his family could tell Governor Carr
who this man is. Long years ago a great
General won a battle alter he was d;ad.
and lead .has arujy to victory. This will
fie a siibsantiAl tribute to his memory.
Let some of bis family suggest tho name
of the nian Vance would have preferred
as his successor and let that man fill out
ids unexpired ferm.
Words of condolence are chesp and
often mean worse 4iian nothing. Funeral
flowers and memorial arches fades. Pay

AGAINST THE. i IYERSITY
Leading Baptists Antagonize Higher
Education by the State.
In the last issue of the Biblical Record

State University. The leading one is the
continuation of the one by Chas. E. Tay

Tbe vote on the resolutions an exchange

earnest and long debate. It mny as well
be said now that the "issue is joined ' bev
twen the Baptists and the Htate Univer

University is that tbe State ought not give
higher educations that all people are
taxed for schooling and that consequently
the schooling furnished ought to be such
as all classes can take, not the higher
education whicb only a few can attain to:
Another argument is that with State
tases to sustain and state prestige behind
it there is danger of its driving denomi
national colleges out of the field.
Without attempting to argue on the
question we have only to say that a school
with such a grand record as the Universi

sustained to the lullest extent necessary

Ex-Governor Jarvis is the man to w hom
more eyes turned than to any other as the
the right one to take up the work which
Hon. L. li. Vance has just relinquished
The position is a very important one
bn wherever placed, Governor Jarvis
has been equal to the emergency. No
man is more devot ed to the intersts of
North Carolina than he, and n.; man let
ter understands, on all . lines, what her
lie is not only a man of ability but ope
Unit accomplishes something. The selec
tion is a wise one.
When Gov. Vance was alive it could
trulev be said of him that he had done
more for North Carolina than 'any other
man then living. Now that he ha.- passed
from earth to bis reward, wliat was thus
said ftf him can, with truth, be said of
Gov. Jarvis. The mantle of the former
hits fallen upon the right shoulders.
In making the appointment. Gov. Carr
no doubt, hada very embarrassing task be
fore him. especially as so nviny prominent
and able men were being brought to the
fiant by the special friends of each, for the
place, and as moreover, from custom the
appointment would regularly have come
from the West; but, with all the light be
fore him, and knowing of Gov. .Tarvis"
ability, exjierience and working qualities.
Gov. Carr exercises his discretion
and made the appointment of
the one whom he felt
sa'islied would best serve the whole peo
pie from the sky capped mountains of the
West to the ocean washed shores of the
East and what his appointee has done in
the past is guarantee enough of what he
will do in the future. A sensible, prac
tical, well-informed working Senator such
as Gov. Jarvis will make is worth a
doaen simply brilliant men, such is some
with which the Halls of Congress are en
cumbered. Wad Dog Excitement.
Wednesday morning a mad dog was
discovered on South Front street near
Craven. lie turned at the corner of Mid
die street and went on as far as the ice
factory where he was at last overtaken
and shot by policeman Brinson.
The dag was frothing at the mouth
and his tongue was swollen and green.
But his "mad career'' was by no means
a quiet one. One of the first things that
drew attention to him was his citing Mr.
W. F. Rountree's dog and as he went he
attacked every dog he met over half a
dozen in all. Among the number, bo
sides thejone already mentioned, were the
dogs of Capt, Matt. Manly and Mr. J. J.
Woifendeu and Elijah Matthews.
Mr. Rountree promptly had nis dog
killed and Capt. Manly sen! his dog to
the police station to be killed. A wise
precaution. No matter how much . the
owner is attached to his dog none should
be allowed to live ,that have in them tbe
germs of a malady so dire in its conse
quences as hydrophobia.
The mad dog killed yesterday belonged
to a colored woman in the suburbs nam
