AT THE HEAD.
Tiik Wilmington Messenger devote a
column of itn editorial page to a review
of some of the more important of North
Carolina towns and caks hopefully of
their possibilities und probabilities. The
following is a paragraph:
Many of our North Curolinn towns
IHIVC miltie rapiil atrioca wiiiiui u lew
years, and some have really "astonished
the natives." Charlotte, Raleigh and
Wilminuton have nil increased in iKipula
tion, and the thrill, enterprise nnd de
velopment have lieen quite pronounced.
Hut perhaps within n decade Asheville
almwa oinri' marked nrotzreas thitn nnv
other town. It lias advanced very much
in wealth and population, and ha now
not far from lil.lino inhabitants. It is
on the upward grade, and is destined to
lie a place of ITi.ooi) or more inhabitants
IK'rlinps, and lielorc the century ends it
may lc. It has four ncwspniers.
The sincere thanks of every resident of
Asheville will be extended to the Mcsscn
gcr for its putting Asheville at the head
of the list, where il belongs, but when it
speaks of its not having far from 10,000
inhabitants, it is going too far. Asheville
hits 12,000 inhabitants, and the coining
census will prove the statement. More
than Hint it has a floating population of
many thousand. And about it being tic'
lined to lie a place of 25,000 the Messen
gcr has hit the nail on the head.

Jesse Clayton, n colored employe on
the Vnndcrhilt estate, at Ililtmore, re
ceived serious, if not fatal, injuries by the
explosion of a keg of gunpowder yester
day. J. H. McCnrty, a foreman, who
was standing near bv, also received se
vere injuries nbout the face and hands.
For some time the workmen have
been engaged in blasting on one of the
mountains. Their plan wns to put in n
light charge of dynamite to break the
earth and make the heavy bhst with
powder. After the dynamite lind ex
ploded in one of the places yesterday
Clayton ran forward to pour in the pow

tom of the hole and the stream of pow

municated to the keg. The latter ex
ploded and Clayton as well as McCnrty
was thrown back several feet. That
they were not instantly killed is miracu

wounded mnn was taken to the home
of Dr. A. S. Whittaker, who dressed his
wounds. His face nnd hands were badly
burned and his eyesight was affected.
The hair was singed completely from the
top of his head. His injuries lire serious
and his chances for life and death me
ubout even. It is the opinion of the at

his eyesight will not lie unpaired. The
wounds of Mr. McCnrty arc by no means

When it was given out last Sunday that
the services at Battery Park would cease
and the Prcshyterinncongrcgalion would
assemble in their church next Sunday,
there wcic many who doubted. Thccon
dition of the work seemed to make it im
possible to complete the church, but it is
otherwise now. Extra forcesof workmen
are put on through the dav and a night
force is now employed.
Six or seven different sets of workmen
are employed at the same time and it is
so arranged that they do not interfere
with one another. The work on the or
