What trieCnurch is Doing in This
Bedford City, Vn., April 10.?At yes?
terday's session of the Presbytery of
Moatuomery, a commission appointed by
presbvtery reported the organization of a
church at Boubrook, in Franklin couuty,
and the church was enrolled.
Mr. Charles Friend, a candidate for the

and the examinations sustained as satis?
factory. His popular lecture was heard
and sustained as satisfactory. At nitzht
Mr. Friend preached a sermon before
Presbytery and a lame congregation,

The great subject of home missions is
now before the presbytery. The annual
report of the presbytery's committee of
home missions was read by Rev. Dr. R.
If. Fleming, chairman. Presbytery has
57 churches and 2-1 ministers within its
bounds. Its ministerial force is inade?
quate to supply the churches, much more
inadequate to supply the vast destitution*.
The committee recommends u regtodpinii

tant recommendations of the committee,
is now under consideration. The contri?
bution to the local home mission work
for the year were $548.56; to the gencrnl

WHO WAS TO BLAME?
Sunday's Railroad Accident Remains
Much of a Puzzler
Who to blame for the railroad acci?
dent which occurred at Harrisburg Bun
day is still being discussed by the railroad
people, as well as others.
The facts are these: No. had orders
not to pass Harrisburg before 11:13. Af?
ter this time if No. 11 was not there '.IG
was to go by. When Engineer Tunstall
came in sight of Harrisburg be saw the
other train was not there and he opened
up bis engine and went by whizzing. As
the train passed the station A. A. Kirk
man, chief dispatcher at Charlotte, and
"Bud'' Smith, an engineer on the Wins?
ton division, who had been to Charlotte,
drew their watches and saw that it was
then a few seconds after ll:15 and Mr.
Kirkmnn remarked that 11 had not
"made it"?that is "had been unable to
reach Harrisburg, the supposition being
that she was waiting at the' first station
this way. in less than half a minute the
collision occurred and the story has been
told of the awful disaster.
Of course it can be and no doubt is
said that the train crew of lS'o. 11 was to
blame. Technically this is true, but al?
lowance is made for a variation in the
time of different watches. Capt. Lowell,
of No. 11. says that it was 11:14 am! that
he could have made the switch in the
minute more remaining. Tunstall '?ays,
and lie is corroborated by Kirkmnn and
Smith, that it was after 11:15.?Winston
