Death of Gbas. D. Mclver.
Dr. Chas. D. Mclver, who was president of the State Normal at Greensboro, died suddenly Mon day afternoon at 4:40. The de ceased was one of the party on the Bryan special train. -The train had left Durham but a short time, on its way to Greensboro, when Dr, Mclver complained of an attack of acute indigestion. State Treasurer Lacy was seated by his side, when Dr, Mclver turned to him and said “call a doctor, I am desperately ill,” Mr. Lacy at once called for help, and W alter Murphy, of this city, A. D. Watts, of Statesville, aud P. D. Gold, of Greensboro, has tened to his assistance. They laid the stricken man on the seat but he died almost instantly. Dr, Jones of Hillsboro, who was on the train, reached the dying man as quickly as he could but Dr. Mclver was already beyond human aid. Ohio Don’t Want Bryan. The Democratic leaders of the State have requested William J. Bryan to stay out of Ohio during the fall campaign. They fear that the Nebraskan’s radical views may jeopardize the party’s suc cess in the State, but excuse their action with the announcement that the campaign will be devot ed to State issues, and hence the peerless leader’s aid will not be necessay. It was on Thursday last that Mr. Bryan in Cincinnati declared that he would devote several days this fall stumping Ohio, visiting Ciccinnati, Cleveland, Toledo, Columbus and the close congres sional districts. The Democratic candidates for congress, it was learned today, held a meeting at the Chittenden Hotel here yester day and decided it would be un wise to bring Bryan into Ohio this campaign. Their decision was unanimous, and Harvey L Garber, chairman of the Demo cratic State committee, was dele gated to notify Bryan of the ac tion. Bryan now says he will come when wanted. Ohio is the hrst State in the Union to notify Bryan that his services wrere not desired. The action is significant in view of the sentiment of the rank and file of of the party for Bryan before the latter returned from his trip around the world.—Columbus, 0., special to New York Sun. Jones has Been Located. Willie A. Jones, the missing Hope Mills bank cashier, has at last been located and all rumors heretofore in circulation as to his whereabout are set at rest. J. S. Jones, of Red Springs, father of the missing young man, writes the bank officials that he has at last heard from his son. He re ceived a letter from him yester day dated Petersburg, Va. In ex planation of his strange conduct young Jones says that h9 went to Richmond, intending to return in time to be at the bank Tuesday morning after the legal holiday Monday, but that he got left in Richmond and fearing that he would be discharged from his place at the bank, sought anoth er job. He obtained a position as telegraph operator for the Nor folk and Western at Petersburg, where he is now located.—Fay etteville special to Charlotte Ob server. -• -- The School Loan Fund.

Walter Matthews, white man aged about 25 years and residing at Deep River, committed suicide by hanging himself. Going to his room in the back of the house, he tied a plow line to the rafters and then around his neck, jump ing to his death. He was found about an hour later No note or anything was left to throw light on the suicide. Matthews has been hard of hearing for some time and lately had become almost deaf. He was a young man of rather peculiar disposition and, on being aroused, was almost unmanage able. Saturday afternoon he en gaged in a quarrel with a negro, who struck him in the face. This so angered the young man that he secured his gun and would have killed the negro had he not been restrained. Fear that he would be arrested, coupled with other things w'hich he brooded over, probably caused him to commit the rash act,—High Point special to Charlotte Observer. -- - Death ot a Newspaper Man.
