RECEPTION AM) BANQUET DURHAM HOSPITALITY EXEMPLIFIED UNTIL A LATE HOUR. A Cordial Welcome and a Neat Response. An I'nique Oration A Feast of Good Thing Witty and Kloquent Pot I'ran- ' dial Speeches. Last night, while music's sweetest strains charmed away dull care, a large concourse of Durham's citizens assem bled in Stokes Hall to extend a cordial and friendly greeting. President Mc Diarmid, of the Press Association, intro duced Mr. J. S. Carr, president of the Commonwealth Club, who spoke as fol lows : Oexti.emex: Unused as I am to pub lic speaking, I fully appreciate the posi tion I occupy in appearing before so intelligent a body as the Press Associa tion of. North Carolina, but knowing as I do your immeasurable sympathy and charity for the unfortunate, and that your criticisms are ever tempered with mercy, I have consented to address to 3rou a few words of welcome. It has been truthfully remarked that it is "the welcome that makes the sauce," so then, gentlemen, you have every rea son to feel that your trip to Durham will be highly seasoned, because I do assure you that no town in North Carolina, the commonwealth we all love, from Curri tuck to Cherokee, could possibly give you a" wanner or more cordial welcome than docs Durham. You are welcome to what our ecclesi astical friend, Bev. Sam P. Jones, says is the best "all round" town he ever saw. You are welcome to our homes and our firesides, you are welcome to the arts and methods that have made Durham, a town that was born into existence since you and me, known more widely and exten sively than Home, when she was the re puted mistress of the world. Tor, gentle men, let me tell you, Durham owes as much to the intelligent press of the country for what she is to-day, as to any other cause, and we appreciate that fact, and allow me to remark byway of paren thesis, that when any community fails rightly to appreciate, and creditabty sus tain the press, it argues, in my judgment, bad for that community. Nay, more, when in any community you find men who profess to live above and beyond and outside of the influence of the press of their community, that man, in plain English, is a fool; and yet, strange to say, there are in almost every community to be found those w ho profess to have no h& ft paper l tlleir community, it is roperlv cnCouragcd and sustained- properly arguing erstwhile that their investments and interests arc elsewhere and they are not concerned whether the local paper lives or tiiat it is all the same to tj,cm poor specimens of the Homo (;enn9it is a down-right insult to a fool to say such men are fools, but like Sam .lones says and you must excuse me for quoting the reverend gentleman, for we are irood friends and I take a deal ot stock in what he says, "Such men ought to be bored for hollow horn and bled in the hollow of the foot. My rule in life has been to live on the best of terms with my wife, the pulpit and the local press; and, gentlemen, let me assure you that a strict adherence to a. ii. n .Wlr.-itinn removes many a morn from the pillow, because there is much force in the trite but somewhat indelicate expression that the three p's, the pulpit, the press and the petticoat rule the worui. I am rejoiced, gentlemen, to be able to say to you with so much truth to-night, that whatever may be said in these days i i .r . ..nil.-!.!. of corruption in mgn piaces-, oi .4 ized and a muzzled press, it can ue sam rn.niiiKT flip nross of dear out jorui Carolina.

' Mr. W. E. 3Iurchison, editor of the Jonesboro Leader, made a pointed and witty response in behalf of the press, provoking many a hearty laugh by sev eral impromptu good bits. Next in order was the oiation by 3Ir. Robert Haydn, editor of the Charlotte Cb.ronfc.-le. It was one of the most unique addresses ever delivered before the Press Association or any other body, and was pronounced one of the best efforts in that line that the editors had ever heard. The oration is printed on the second page of this paper. The speech making being ended, the meeting adjourned and the editors, mem bers of the Commonwealth Club and in vited guests repaired to the Hotel Clai born where a sumptous repast was spread. One hundred and fifty men sat down at the table and held their ground until the hour of two this morning. After all had done justice to the fare Mr. J. S. Carr annonnced the toasts and spcakors in the following order: North Carolina, the Land We Love. Response by J. II. Southgate, of Durham. Mr. Southgate made a speech glovdng with patriotism and state pride, abound ing with eloquent allusions to the power of the press. The reporter's best efforts failed to secure the manuscript of the speech, and to this fact must be attributed The GLOBK'a failure to print it this. evening. The North Carolina Press 'Association. Response by W. W. MeDiarmi.l, Editor of the -Luratjcrton ltobesonian, and President of the Association. Mr. Chairman, and Gentlemen : It would have been pleasing to me if an other and more eloquent tongue than mine had been assigned the theme which has fallen to me, perhaps because I am the president of theAssociation. The sweep of the power for good or for evil the Association may wield is worthy of the portraiture of an artist of rf011 an lik? the Queen of Sheba "go the finest culture and most exquisite - taste. It? . Tliere were two things about the Queen The two pillars, we take it, on which" the safety, duration and glory of these American states 'depend are the grant;JSOdhing," she had sense enough to ing of the greatest possible quantum of 1 see 3 and the otheF' woman-like, when personal liberty to the individual citizen, hc saw a "good thing" was willing to am! the freedom and power of the printi ing press. The functions of the latter; in a normal state of things, are to de fend and restrain the individual; per? ptU.t , thJt lihrtT eaeconlert, and at Ue Vf Z!J: same time, to protect the body politic from its abuse. The practical utility, the unique re sponsibility, the great power, the sacred obligations of an association like ours, covering and guarding, angel-like, so great a commonwealth in the proud gal axy of American states, may be readily seen, and should be pondered wTith the keenest interest. Its mission is, by con ference, to broaden and Jdeepen and lengthen the insight of vision so as to discern with more quickness, clearness and accuracy, every taint of treason, the very beginnings of wrong against the body politic, the traces and dark deeds f criminality, dangerous and seductive, as well as safe investments, in order that more and more, it may fill its mission in this land of popular liberty as the palla peoplc.s ihe;tVj peace and at a u r do nQ mftn can nirtnre. if the opportunities af- rrasned and utilized in loval tQ tbe mie ftml bcautiful and .n Qur annual conv0nliOn we ghall earn more aml more bow to expose , . , th sovereiffn neopl. point out danger, point with unmistak -j - - able attractions the path of virtue and prosperity, and at the same time, by le r. t mofo pnnfpr nt nrtinn learn o mil ' ritimate concert of action, learn to lift 1 - . f 1 -It to a mgner piane oi maier.at pro.u, our own vocation, no dearer interest a will cluster around any o ner gainerings in the state in the cominsr and iroing years. i , . ...

A(i3lime. amonc the closinsrT veais of C'eDth century, we live since the day; b't Guttenburg, we live in the days of sv&hographers and newspaper report ers, Jwid whatever is said or done, mcrito rioirs;or otherwise, in conspicuous places or places of obscurity, is flashed along the:ires with lightning speed, and thrjfctgfi the agency of the great modern newspaper Jpress, the vanguard of civili za on, reaches the millions of readers al most fis soon as it happens. lke days of King Solomon it was different. Then it was that the wisest acts '-of the greatest and noblest of man kid, whether in building stately man sfons, erecting magnificent temples and laying out royal cities adorned with wealth and splendor, their acts were H3tMtwn,td but few. It required loner and patient journeyings of those who doubted pprts of such things which might by accident reach their ears in distant lands, jto start the caravan for personal observa of Sheba which' I rather like one was that .when King Solomon showed her a xeu it,- w nat a gionous newspaper re porter she would have made in our times!

X.-.. me; tor But Solomon, with all his wisdom, could not come here now and without one of you to jhow him how to do it, run even a wreekly newspaper for a single issue. He never smoked an ounce of " Durham Smoking Tobacco," nor did his son Ke- hoboam (who was a pretty bad boy, by the way) ever see a "Duke Cigarette," nor did a single one of his many wives ever "take a dip" of Tomlinson's world- "Snuff." But levity aside gentlemen, the toast to which I am to respond is one which prompts the reflections of a philosopher rather than the jests of a clown. You have come to Durham "to see for your selves," and we are delighted to afford you the opportunity. We cannot read in ancient history nor speak of the traditions of departed great ness when we approach the subject of the "City of Durham." She has no tra ditions yet, and of her history her people and all of us as North Carolinians may well be proud. Hardly two decades ago had you spoken of the city of Durham, aven in our own state, the hearer would not have understood you ; .but his mind would twin towards a far off land and his thoughts become fixed on the "City of Durham" in the mother-land of En gland. But now speak of Durham any where on the continent and the hearer I II I III III 1 1IC 1AJL1 VX w j - . r .n of T)ur ham," as she sits in her pride of business royalty though the youngest of her size, vet as fair as any, and in the line of her business queen among her sister cities of he "Golden Belt." History bears me out in the assertion that this little city whose age scarcely exceeds a decade, cer tainly not as much as two decades, (for only as far back as 1870, the population all told by an accurate census, honestly taken, was merely 256,) this little city is to-day well known and has a direct trade and commerce with nations and peoples in foreign lands throughout the world, and has become a household name to the consumers of tobacco where the name of our own great state was never heard and North Carolina, even, is a terra incognita an unknown land. IVouid you believe it ? Twenty years ago the total amount of capital invested in manufacturing in Durham was, all told, only $25,000, while to-day a sin gle establishment represents $4,000,000. Twenty years ego the entire number of operatives employed in Durham was one hundred; to-day there are more than twenty-five hundred. Twenty years ago not a leaf tobacco dealer nor tobacco warehouse was in the place : now dealers are counted by the score, and the annual sales of four large warehouses aggregate more than 15,000,000 pounds. Twenty years ago not a cigarette was manufac tured in the place , last year Dnke & Son alone made and sold more than 802,000, 000 cigarettes and over 3,000,000 pounds of moking tobacco besides. May -I be pardoned for mentioning, with the enthusiastic pride of a Durham citizen, that a Durham boy who started life poor and got his early business train ing here, is now among the great busi ness men of.the country in the greatest metropolis on the continent, the president and honored head oL-4-lie American To bacco Company, which is the largest to bacco corporation in the world. The Blackwell Tobacco Company, whose magnificent building stands out in its grand proportions in front of this hotel, and whose pioneer success made the city of Durham possible, and is still ; decade just past manu factured a4 told in "the markets otUhe wbrljirior-; tiia.'gOOOOS ft d 9 pf emfiingidbacc-a;: C'VsT-xaigiito on and her various io(lastrfal,,'dacat!ona. and social institutions, we bid you ' look around you, take notes of what you see, and my prediction is that you will re turn to your homes impressed with the fact, like Sheba's Queen, "the half about Durham has never been told." But a word in conclusion. The stranger may inquire what has done all this? Let me take you into my confidence and tell you. "The unity of the people of Durham." Sum it up in one short senteuce. These people have learned the lesson and prac tically applied it 'In union there is strength." These ' magnificent business schemes were set on foot and carried out by Durham men, and Durham brain and Durham muscle intelligently applied have brought about these grand rcsulis. With sagacity unsurpassed and with push and vim aud energy hardly ever equalled in the South her business men have over come by almost superhuman effort the obstacles in the way of her progress. The people of Durham have worked and they have prayed for Durham, nni be hold the results! Does the cause of edu cation anai0ojl euHuremTNissistance, Durham extend a helping hand p.nd be hold! Trinity College becomes a Dur ham institution by the princely donations of the rich men who made their own for tunes by honest endeavor, and know how and when to give.

Permit me to add as indicating what the City of Durham is in the estimation of ler own people. The site of that cotton actory, covering a little over an acre and as you see unimproved, was twenty vears ago worsh exactly the sum of ten lollars. Last week the Company gave ... . .1 1 one thousand nines mai mucn ior n, aim nought it for $5,000. May we not hope then, aye, may we not confidently believe that what has been accomplished Tn the past by the City of Durham is but the business dawn of that grand day when this young city. now strong in thcvigor of her business manhood putting forth renewed energy, shall at the very zenith of her glory, having then and not lill then, reached the goal of her ambition, stand in the noonday splendor of higher and still no bler and grander achievement. The Ktlitorial Profusion. R-fIonae lv 11. A. Loivlon. IMitnr of t he I'itts Imro Keeoril. Mr. London's speech was a gem of elo quence. In clear-cut, well rounded sen tences, he charmed all listeners w hile he spoke of the evolution of the editor and of the important relation that he sus tains toward the state and society ; but like the first speaker, he failed to furnish copy for the printer: hence this brief notice. The Manufacture of Iurham. Iiesione by V- Touilkwn, M Durham. By an unfortunate misunderstanding of the subject, an additional letter "i" was added to the last syllable of the word "manufactures," and it so happened that Mr. Tomlinson made a neat speech in re gard to some highly esteemed citizens of Durham instead of a comprehensive glance at the industries that are the proud boast of Durham.

As Franklin brought down lightning from the clouds so the press has brought education and enlightenment to the peo ple and it lias burst the cerements that bounds them in the death of ignorance and has quickened and made them alive. By the difference of intelligence it has emancipated thecitizen, the trade man, the farmer, the laborer, and has built up the great middle class of the civilized nations.' It has thus created the public, and made a public opinion. ' It has modified systems of government, upset theories of religion, unfettered the mind of man and made all men free to roam at will in the field of intellect- " nal endeavor. - " In the dissolving view of the old 7. regimes, we see gradually fade away tho factitious power 0 a ruling nobility, while thererise4 in splendid majesty ; ; that creation of inodern 1- days . tke Intel .

Such, Mr. President, is the work of the press. Its great triumph over the traditionary institutions of the ages, and it ' is its chicfest glory that it has reformed so ciety, and by enlightening man, has es tablished modern citizenship, and created an intelligent public when opinion now forms the controlling power in all mat ters that concern the people. And as it made public opinion possible, so docs it now exert a decided influpnee in mould ing that opinion. It is happily the power that keeps in perpetual motion the great machinery that regulates and moves the affairs of the world.

We need the scholar.in the sanctum, and the scholar with a plenty of backbone. Having called into being the great intel ligent, thinking mass of citizens, the press should lead it aright, hold out no false beacon lights, nor abandon the high purpose to reform abuses, cure evils, and lift manhood to a nobler life and lead the people to greater freedom and happier fortunes. And beware of the demagogue, ; the stumbling block in the inarch of en- lightenftient and the marplot of what in just ami proper in 'luman affairs.
