Harris, Gooch & Co., proprietors of Harris' warehouse, say trust or no trust they are going right ahead buying cut ters as heretofore and no farmer who sells with them need have any fear of not getting all his tobacco is worth. They have an ample supply of surplus capital and will use it in defense of the farmers' rights and interests. "We received an invitation to be present at a banquet to be given in honor of Col. L. L.

Renn was made a Presiding Elder by the Conference at Greensboro and was put in charge of the Salisbury district. Rev. J. T. Gibbs was given a like appointment and sent to the Fay etteville district. Both gentlemen are well known and have many friends in this community. Mr. Renn was at one time pastor of the Methodist church in Hen dersou. Messrs. Pillars and Robinson, expert photographers, are in Henderson for a short time for the purpose of doing work in their line. They are prepared to make pictures of houses, family groups, land scapes, &c. and guarantee their work to be first-class in every respect. Their charges are reasonable. For further par ticulars call on them at the Ldwards House. The many friends of Rev. T. J. Off- burn will be pleased at his return to the charge of the Methodist Protestant church in this town, which he has served so faithfully and acceptably as pastor the past j'ear. He is an earnest and zealous worker, a good preacher, ana a pleasant and agreeable gentleman socially and has greatly endeared him self to our people outside of his own con gregation as well a in it. TJie' warehousemen and speculators ffn this market do not propose to be downed by the cigarette trust without resentment on their part. They are going ahead buying cutters and paying as big prices for that stock as usual. Such action, which is really in defense of the farmers" rights, bwause it is certainly to their interest that there is fret? and full competition for their tobacco, ought not to go unnoticed and unappreciated by them. Nor will it. Pursuant to call a meeting of the Vance county Farmers' Alliance was held at the court house in Henderson Tuesday, for the purpose of considering the matter of the recent action of the cigarette manu facturers in forming what is termed the "cutter trust.

Manning, Dear &ir: In answer to your enquiry in last issue of Gold Leaf as to why so few while people are employed in facto ries here, will say I suppose the " bosses" for each department in all of the facto ries are white, and was skilled white labor abundant, some, if not all, of the depart ments would be supplied with white labor. You will very naturally say then why not take white boys or girls and train them ? In the first place we will say we haven't time to open a training school exclu sively, and should we solicit green or inexperienced labor at what they would be worth to us nine times out of ten the parents would say we are trying to get their children without a fair compensa tion; and in the next place you ask a white child who has worked singly among a lot of the colored race for his experience. He will assure you his lot was a hard one and generally demoraliz ing, and to the extent that no true lover of his race will want to see a child placed in such a position. Tobacconist.

The loss to you is a tie voted husband; to the entire South a noble chief. May the God of all grace comfort and bless you and yours. Harris, ) Perry, Com. Manning, ) Mr. W. R. Henry was ca lied upon to address the meeting and paid a touch ing and eloquent tribute to the memory of the noble dead. Those who have heard Mr. Henry know what manner of speaker he is, and with such a theme and such an occasion he did credit to himself and reflected honor upon our people in the beautiful and tender offer ing laid upon the bier of the great Con federate leader. On motion of Dn tjneatnam it was voted that the re marks of Mr. Henry be printed in the Gold Leaf together with the resolu tions. This will be done next week, the crowded condition of our columns precluding it at this time. Mr. II. T. Watkins spoke also, his remarks being short but to the point.

And in time to come it will be so written by others. The poet will sing ol his virtues, the bard will write bis praises and the historian will do him simple and even handed justice. Capt. Katch-1 in's speech was in every way worthy of the man and the occasion. It was a splendid effort, as eloquent as it was appropriate. ' At times he was sweetly touching and pathetic moving many of audieuce to tears. Col. Wrm. II. S. Burgwyn was 'then called for. He said he would be false to every sentiment of his nature if he did not raise his voice in behalf of the noble dead and speak in praise of his character and manly virtues. He read a letter from Mrs. Davis written while the ex-Presideat was confined in prison in Fortress Monroe, which was warmly applauded. While on a visit to Rich mond ho learned of the wants and ne cessities of Mr. Davis and upon return ing to Chapel Hill where he had again entered as a student upon his return from the army, a purse amounting to between 675 and $100 was made up by I the students and lorwarded bv 111m. The letter was in acknowledgment of this act and was written by Mrs. Davis. We publish it below : Fortress Monroe, Va., Feb. 23, 18G7 W. II. S. Burgion, My Dear Sir : Mr. Davis, not being permitted by the U. S. authorities to write to his friends, desires me to thank you for your very gratifying expressions of regard for him, 111 the name of yourseir, and fel low students. He recognizes and fully appreciates the motives which led to the contribution which you enclosed to him, and is much touched that from which, in the present state of the country, must nec essarily be a slander store, you and the young gentlemen associated with you have offered so much to him. For the future he insists that you will pay him all that you are so kind as to consider his due, in love, and confidence that though unsuccessful he may have been, he gave you all his en ergies, and his whole heart. It is a source of great and constant grati fication to him when such words as you have written come to him from the young men of the South. Please make his ac knowledgments to his friends, your as sociates. The splendid book of prayer reached him safely, and but one regret at tended its reception. We were grieved that you could not have presented it in per son, and that Miss Burgwyn could not have accompanied you to receive our thanks for this addition to her former kindnesses. I have to-day written to her to offer Mr. Davis's thanks. When again you shall have leisure to visit us, if wc should yet linger here, we shall be charmed to wel come you even here. Believe me sir. Very respectfully and truly yours, Varine Davis. It being late no further speaking was indulged. The resolutions were then adopted and were ordered to be pub lished in the local papers along with the proceedings and that a copy be sent to Mrs. Davis. There were many ladies in the audi ence which was a very large one. So ended the meeting held in honor of the great and good man whose long and eventful career is so well known to us all.

Col. t Burgwyn spoke feelingly and appropriately of the great Confederate leader, and said that Mr. Davis died in the sublime assurance that he had the love and confidence of the people of the South. He was loved as was no other man amongst us and in paying the last sad tribute of respect to his memory' now we were but simply doing our duty to the man who had stood for us and suffered in our stead. Mr. W. R. Henry was next called upon. He said he did not have the honor of participating in the stirring events of the war, but he had read his tory and was familiar with the deeds of our leaders both upon the field of bat tle and in the halls of State. He hon ored them and revered their memory. The name of no man stood out more conspicuously and was worthy of more honorable mention than that of Jeffer son Davis, our great Chieftain whose lamented death in the Crescent City of the South, at the advanced age of more than four score years, we are called upon to mourn, and in respect to whose memorv we bad gathered to give ex pression to the deep sense of sorrow that filled the hearts of Ins loving and admiring countrymen. Mr. Henry spoke with great fervor and feeling, and touched the hearts of his hearers bv his eloquent tribute to the worth and .character of the dead hero. Jeffer son' Davis was a grand figure. As sol dier, civilian; statesman, patriots he measured up to the full standard of the perfect man and we may not behold his like again. Mr. Henry said that while Mr. Davis had commanded our admna tion and confidence bv his conduct prior to and during the war, in the years of defeat which followed, he had gained a stronger hold upon our affec tions and won more lasting dominion over our hearts. The attitude of the Federal government and the calumnies of his" would-be traducers, have served only to deepen the love and reverence of the people of the South for him. History nowhere furnishes a higher 'il lustration of every manly virtue than that which is furnished by the life and career of Jefferson Davis. His heroic endurance and forbearance have wrested from his bitterest enemies their testi mony to the worth and grandeur of the man, and his motives, his character, his acts will vet receive justice at the hands of the historian. Col. Cheek spoke next. Jefferson Davis presents the most complete statue of the well rounded man than the world has ever known. Col. Cheek paid a handsome tribute to the gallant dead, and told how on one occasion by mere chance when President Davis was visiting Lee's army, he had for a short time led the regiment which the speaker commanded as they wrere hastening for ward to join the main column just be fore engaging in a big light. Mr. J. II. Duna spoke also, and re- 1 cited. Ilalleck's beautiful poem Marcos By virtue of a decree of the Superior Court of Vance county, N. C, entered Dec. 4th, 1889, in cause entitled Edward G.
