Or, a# it will be called hereafter, the Charles

take place, as mentioned before, next Mon
day night, the loth, at S p. m. sharp. The
company's well composed showbill# can be
seen all over town, ami attract everybody’s
attention, and we will only give our readers
tbis good advice, go early und secure seats,
because we think the house w ill be jammed.
The entertaiument is going to be grand, and
there will be something for everybody, for
ladies and gentlemen as well as children :—
pathetic, comical aud old plantation songs,
all the latest bright sougs, aud plenty of up
to-date fun, which will keep the audience
laughing from start to finish. Mr. Johnson
nays that if there i« any person in the town
who has never laughed he guarantees to
make them lsugu that night or forfeit the
admission fet. The tableau of the Battle
of Autietam is composed of twelve uni
formed men, aud will be the most affecting
number on the programme. From the pro
gramme we mention a few names :
L>aisy Carlton—the American serio-comic
Lottie Uilsou—the beautiful e’ inadian char
acter singer
Bill Nye— who everybody knows.
; Or—the French chamouette

Mr. V. L. Lippitt, formerly of Charles
Town, is the author of a column article iu
the New York Herald of the 2d, reviewing
in a very forcible a# well as interesting way
the rspid increase of business in the manu
facturing and mining industries aud the
geueral advance in wages since the revi-ed
tariff went into eflect. The article is sup
plemented by "a partial li-*t, comprising
more than 400 factories and mills which
have increased the wages of their employe*,
affecting over 420,000 laboring men, and
also of about 250 factories, of which the
number of employes is not mentioned.’ —
This statement, showing the improved con
dition of half a milliou workingmen, aud
Mr. I.ippitt's striking comparison of the
present state of affairs with that existing
under the operation of the McKinley law,
constitute an argument of the strongest kind
against the fallacious doctriue of ‘‘protec
tion to labor.” The Herald complimented
Mr. Lippitt not only by devoting nearly a
page to the article aud a third of a page to
a telling cartoon based on the article, but
its leading editorial of that date (Labor
Day ) was suggested by Mr. Lippitt’a timely
contribution. Mr. Lippitt is an assistant of
Mr. Thompson Maury in the weather bureau
of the Herald, and for a few weeks past has
been occupying the chair of his chief. W e
take great pleasuro in this mention of our
former young townsman, aud would be glad,
if it were practicable, to reproduce his ar
ticle to which we refer.
Mr. Daniel E. Moler, a native of this

Mrs. Mary J. Moler ou the 4th instant, from

of his age. He was a brave soldier having
served four years in the Stonewall Brigade,
and as a mark of his bravery he bore the
scars of seveu musket balls.—II. F. .Sr;if»/ief.
A few months ago he was admitted to the
membership of the Presbyterian Church in

Winchester Presbytery.
The Winchester Presbytery, in session in
Round Hill, in Frederick county. Thursday
night settled the caso of John T. McKown
and John D. Gordon, elde * of the Presby
terian Church at Gerardstown, Berkeley
county, against the session ol that church,
which is represented in the case by Dr. John
B. Wiley, clerk of the session. The esse
has for two years embarassed the session of
the presbytery and resulted in a division of
the church at Gerardslown and the resign*
tion of the pastor, Rev. E. L. Wilson, now
of Waterford, Loudoun county, Va. For
what they deemed sufficient cause the ses
sion of the church dismissed Messrs. .Me
Kown and Gordou from lheir eldership in
the church and those gentlemen appealed
their case to the presbytery at its session
last year and it was continued until the ses
sion this year. After heated discussions the
presbytery su-tained the action of the ses
sion, only three votes being cast for the ap
peilants. Rev. J. Harry Moore, of Keyser,
was counsel for the appellants, and Rev. Dr
F. M. Woods, of Martiusbarg, represented
the defendants.
.Mr. Abner Hopkins, of this town, a son
of Rev. Dr. A C. Hopkins, was admitted to
the ministry. His liberal views on baptism
caused discussion, but only one member re
fused to vote for his admission. Order was
taken for his ordination at Charles Town on
Sunday by Rev. J. Harry Monre, Rev. Dr.
James R Graham and Rev. Dr. Hopkins.
Every church in the presbytery was rep
resented bv its ministers, and the represen
tation by delegates was unusually large.
The presbytery adjourned Saturday to
meet in Martinsburg in April. Reports
from the churches within the bounds of the
presbytery showed a substantial growth.—
There are now forty six churches and it is
expected that several new charges will be
opened and supplied within a few months.
