Spaldlng Racer, Model No. 724
The "Spaldlng Hater" that Carper rode
in the races last Saturday was more
highly complimented than any wheel on
the track, This wheel was not received
until late Thursday evening before the
races, and it won THREE PRIZES, more
than some who had been [on the track
for months training.
The "Spaldlng Racer" only weighs 19
pounds with racing tires, and 21 pounds
with road tires, and not 21 pounds, as
some of our neighbors reported.
The "Spaldlng" can't be beat. It is
the most graceful wheel on the market.

All Who Truly Repent Will be
ELOQUENT ?ERMON AT THE BAP?
TIST TENT MEETING LAST NIGHT
BY REV. THOMAS J. SHIPMAN,
PASTOR OF TRE FIRST BAPTIST
CHURCH?HIS TEXT WAS EXCEPT
YE REPENT YE SHALL ALL
LIKEWISE PERISH?DR. BROUGH?
TON WILL PREACH TO NIGHT.
The congregation at the Bapptlst tent
meeting last night was a veiy large one,
every seat being occupied and deep inter?
est manifested. The services began with
an eloquent prayer by Rev Win. Luns
ford, tvhile the singing of the choir was a
beautiful and interesting feature of the ex?
ercises. The closing prayer, also a very
eloqueut appeal, was offered by Rev. Mr.
Bulla, pastor of Grace Methodist Church,
anil the benediction was pronounced by
Rev. Ur. Broughton.
The sermon of the evening was preach?
ed by Rev. T. J. Shipman, pastor of the
First Bapist Church, who ddivered an
able and argunieiiative discourse upon
repentance, taking as his text a verse
from the 5th chapter of Luke: "Except
ye repent ye shall all likowise perish."
The speaker gave a full definition of
the word "Repentance," going back to
? the original Creek from which it was de?
rived, which meant, lie said, "a change of
mind, the forsaking of one thing and tak?
ing up another." This to the Christian
was forsaking sin and accepting Christ.
He then drew a vivid picture of the con?
sequences of not repenting, and urged
upon his hearers the imnortance of for?
saking their sins and accepting Christ.
The great and benellcient results of re?
pentance were eloquently portrayed. All
who truly repented, the speaker said,
would be accepted by On ist, while those
who neg'ected his proffers of mercy would
be lost; for without repentance noue could
be saved. He answered the question, was
one sinner greater than another, by quot?
ing the text, "Except ye repent ye shall
all likewise perish." There wore no ills
Unctions in. this case, he said, the great
ami the small sinner would perish alike,
unless they repented. There was no
question as to the size of the sin.
In closing ho referred tothe uncertainty
of life, and urged h's hearers tr> repent
now or they might be eternally too fate
He alluded to the explosion on the Nor?
folk and Western railroad Monday night,
when two men were hurled into eternity
without a moment's warning, and gave
other forcible illustrations of the uncer?
tainty of life, and the importance of seek?
ing the Savior while he could he found.
There was,he said, no nineteenth century
religion, as that contrasted with that of
other ages. Christ was the same yester?
day, to day and to-morrow, always full
of compassion for et ring mortals and al?
ways ready to forgive all who repented of
their sins and accepted Him.
That the sermon made a deep impres?
sion upon all who heard it was evidenced
by the marked attentiou paid to the
speaker by his auditors, and when the
meeting closed it was plain that the work
on hand was progressing well towards the
most irratifying results.
The services to night will begin at. 8
o'clock, and the sermon of the evening
will he preached by Dr. Broughton,pastor
of Calvary Baptist Church.

She is not expected to survive her inju?

THE VACa-NT BISHOPRIC.

Richmond, Va., June 1.?It is not
known whether Bishop Whittle will call
a meeting of the diocesan council for the
purpose of selecting a successor to the
Into coadjutor. Bishop Newtcn. It is prob?
able that the bishop will not consider this
matter seriously for a week or more. He
can, it he chooses, call another blihop
from a distance to act as his assistant, or
he may ask Rt. Rev. C. C. Peniek, ol St.
Mark s Church, but late of Baltimore, to
act in that oapneity. Among those
spoken of for bishop coadjutor are the
Rev. Dr. McKim, of Washington; Rev.
Mr Lloyd, of Norfolk, and Rev. Mr. Kin
salving, of Brooklyn. It is said in Epis?
copal Church circles that the new bishop
is very apt to be*a Virginian?Is certain
to bo a Southern man.

Brilliant Closing of Virginia Col?
lege Last Night,
Last night witnessed the closing exer?
cises o' Virginia College 'for the cession
of 1890-7. The session just closed has
been a remarkable one in many respects
in the anna's of the school; ..for, whilst
many schools of similar character ha\o
lost in patronnee, Virginia College, de?
spite the money stringency, has steadily
increased in numbers, and the long list
of names from this and other States is
more eloquent than words of its growing
popularity in the South. Its founder,
that nestor of educators, Dr. Win. A.
Harris, laid its foundations on lines broad
and liberal, and when, upon his death,
tho presidency devolved upon his daugh?
ter, Miss Mattie A. Harris, the school
found iu her a successor worthy to carry
to successful completion the policy al?
ready inaugurated, and to-day Roauoke
can boast of a school in her midst, for the
education of her daughters, second to
none In the South. One test of tho thor?
oughness of the school is the comparative
small number of diplomas awarded,
though the enrollment numbers 175. The
healthfulness, too, of its location is evi-.
denced by the fact that throughout the
year, though the school was so large,
there has been no serious case of sickness.
All thuse facts point to a successful
session next fall, and already many rooms
have been engaged ty those who will re?
The exercises last night were of an ex?
ceedingly pleasant character, the delivery
of certificates and diplomas being inter
spersed with vocal und Instrumental
music. The overture, ''Sakuutala," ar?
ranged for three pianos, was an exotic of
oriental gargcousness that brought out
the cultivation of the graduates, Misses
Rust, Persinger, Carr, Jones, Rail and
Not less brillant, but of an entirely op?
posite character, was the "Triumphal
Mrrch from Aiila," by Verdi,Us wild and
barbaric chords ringing cut like a tocsin
of war tinder the linge.rs of the Misses
Johnson, Almand, Stewart, Warren,
Bass, Knobeloch, Robinson and DeLacy.
The piano solo of Miss Mary Middleton,
"Au den Fr?hling." by Grieg, under her
deft fingers told a story of green mead?
ows, rippling brooks and June skies,^a
pastoral lyric that was changed in an in?
stant to mournful winds and November
skies by the second part, the Mazurka
in G of Saint Saens.
The vocal selections were equally as
irood, the duet, "Heralds of Ppriug," by
Misses Stewart and Persinger, blending
into sweetest harmony. "Shoujd he Up?
braid," a vocal selection by Miss Ruth Al
maud, was well rendered and showed a
voice of good compass, clear and full.
The sweet, symptbetic voice of Miss Mae
Stormfeltz, vibrating with soul and pa?
thos iu the "Old Garden," won for her a
well deserved encore. All of Mrs. Silver
thorn's work is characterized by that
most delightful of all vocal essentials,
clear enunciation, and her pupils reflect

Judge SimontOiVs Decision on the
AN INTERFERENCE WITH COM?
MERCE?IN THE VANDERCOOK
CASK HE FINDS THAT OUTSIDE
CITIZENS HAVE TRE RIGHT TO
BRING LIQUORS INTO THE STATE
IN ORIGINAL PACKAGES FOR
PERSONAL USE?LOOKS LIKE
DOWNFALL OF DISPENSARY.
Charleston, S. C, June 1. ?In the
United Status circuit court this morning
Judge Stmonton handed down his decis?
ion in what is widely known as tho Van
dercopk ease, a case which involved the
validity of many provisions of the South
Carolina dispensary law. The decision
created a sensation when it was learned
that the court had declared certain pro?
visions of the law in 0Onfllct"with the in?
terstate commerce regulations of Con?
gress, and that consequently it might re?
sult in the total downfall of the South
Carolina monopoly ot the whiskey busi?
ness within her borders
In a syllabus prefixed to the full text
of the decision, Judge Simontou suys:
"Any State may, in the exercise of its
police power, declare that the manufac?
ture, sale, barter, and exchange, or the
use as a beverage of alcoholic liquors are
public evils, and having thus declared,
can forbid such manufacture, sale, barter
and exchange or use within her territory.
"Hut when such State recogui/.cs and
approves the manufacture, sale, barter
and exchange and use of as a beverage of
alcoholic liquor*, and tho State itself en?
courages the manufacture, engages in the
sale of, and provides for the consumption
of alcoholic liquors as a beverage, and so
precludes the idea that such manufac?
ture, sale, barter, exchange or use are
injurious to the public welfare, it is not
a lawful exercise of police power to for?
bid the importation of such liquors or
their sale in orgiual packages for per?
sonal use and consumption.
"Such prohibition under such circum?
stances is in conliict with the laws of in?
terstate and foreign commerce. The dis?
pensary act of lS'.Hi as amended by the act
of 1807, inasmuch as they approve the
purchase and manufacture ot aleohllc
liquors for the State and provide for the
sale of such alcoholic liquors as beverage,
in aid of the finances of the State, in so
far as they forbid tho Importation of al?
coholic liquors in original packaues for
such use in this State, are in conliict with
the laws of interstate and foreign com?
merce, and are therefore to that extent
The court, then goes into a lengthy dis
mission of facts and the law of tho case.
Judge Simonton's summary of the facts
before him is as follows:
"This is a bill in equity, filed by com?
plainant^ corporation of theState of Cali?
fornia against S. W. Vance, who Is State
commlsioner under the dispensary law,
and W. N. Hahr and others, who are Stale
constables, appointed to put this law into
execution. The bill alleges that the com
plainantl'is an owner of vineyards in the
State of California, and that it is manu?
factured from grapes of Bitch vinynrds,
well known pure wines, brandies, and
other liquors, particularly clarets, rhine
wine, burgundies and champagne. That j
by its traveling agent the complainant took
ortlers from certain citizens and residents
of the State of South Carolina to deliver
to each of them certain orginal packages
of'wines, etc.,"products of its vineyards,
IIlied said orders, and shipped from San
Fraucisco, in California, to Charleston,
S. C, by rail, a carload of its products
containing seventy-three separate original
packages for each of its said customers,
all marked with its name and addicss in
California, adopting this mode of ship?
ping by carload in order to obtain a, large
reduction in freight."
Tho judge reviews at great length the
laws of the case, and concludes his decis?
ion as follows: "It is manifest, therefore,
tl at the same conclusion must, be reached
with regard to the dispensary act of 1897, |
which was reached by the supreme court
of the United States as to the act of 1805,
that it is not within the scope and opera?
tion of the Wilson net. This being the
ease, the law laid down in Lcisy vs. liar
din controls this case, ami the attempt to
forbid the.importation and sale of spirit
uns liquors in original packages must
"The decision of the supreme court of
the United States must control all cir?
cuit courts. By this decision it is clear
that so long as theState itself engages in
t'ne business of importing and selling
alcoholic liquors'for the purpose of profit,
the USB of alcoholic liquors as a beverage
is lawful and can be encouraged. So long
as It seeks a monopoly In supplying
these liquors for that use, and in this
way looks to an increase of her revenue,
she cannot, under her constitutional ob?
ligations to the other States of this
I'niou, forbid control, hinder, and burden
commerce in such articles between their
citizens and her own.
