His life and character has been specially not worthy to the people of Monroe and vicinity for over half a century ami scarcely any man has been more allied and interwoven with the steady growth and material prosperity of this town than he. When, therefore, the Business Men's Bible Class of Central Methodist church at Monroe feels called upon to commemorate his demise, the voice of this class, In a sense, becomes the voice of the entire community. In reviewing his life work as a business man, he ex emplified In a remarkable degree the ! virtue of thrift and the dignitv of la- ' bnr. He was an honest man. and t!ii always carries with it many other virtues and good qualities. As might be expected of such a character he was always positive in his convictions and firm in his position on all ques tions. During the vicissitudes of a long business career, he went un ceasingly to his work and alwaxs fol lowed what he regarded as the path of duty. Very few measure up to such a bii-iness standard without a break through three score years and ten.

Adams, vice president of the Farmers & Mer chants bank, and over a hundred other bunkers iu the State, and th hearing in Monroe next week before Judge J. Bis Ray will be watched with a great deal or interest by east ern and Southern financiers. Bankers in those two cities, ac cording to a Washington dispatch, are outspoken in their sympathy for the federal reserve bank in the pend ing litigation. "It was said in the banking district here." says the dis patch, "that Washington bankers are paying close attention to the matter, as today a number of them had checks returned. In instance they plan to send these checks to national banks in the cities and towns in which the slate banks on which the checks ;iie drawn are locat.-d. "While the law. which became ef reclhe Fe.bruary .'ill, makes it op tional i'h non - member banks in North i',:,n!ina vhether th, y shall or shall not charge a fee for collections, a niiinhe,- of institutions have declin ed to rei.ii: at par and a few institu tions went so far as to go in court and obtain an order temporarily re straining tin- Inderal reserve bank Of Richmond from returning, as dishon ored, all checks drawn on institu tions which declined to pay them over the counter when presented for col lection. "It is claimed that there are about 2 banks in North Carolina that are taking advantage of the law, and in view or the serious situation created by such action and the interference to the ordinary transaction of busi ness between Bultimore and Wash ington and those particular points in North Carolina, representatives of all financial institutions in the .Monu mental City held a recent conference, and after giving the subject careful consideration came to the conclusion that the only thing to do was to de cline to accept checks drawn on any bank In North Carolina that insisted, on charging exchange for collections. The Individual banks followed this action by notifying their customers of their refusal to handle such Checks. "Local bankers declare that they intend to give the federal reserve bank their full co-operation In its fight to apply the par collection sys tem In North Carolina, a system which was adopted over a year ago in Maryland and which has been ex tended to neatly every State in the Union." - m SKIDS ARE PI T IMlKU THE "CHI KOI OK GOD" El-win, of Duke mid Dunn Mills, Burs l-'rori Plant the Follower of .New Religion. He who sltteth upon a red hot stove may rise again, hut he rannot work in the mills of Duke, wherein are located the big Erwln textile In terests, says a Dunn dispatch to the Greensboro News. This is according to a ruling or William A. Erwln, whose mandate has put the skids un der some 75 or more families whose members had listened to the Lorelei song of one who would establish the new Church or God in the mill town environs. Mr. Eiwin's orders grew out of the inroads made upon his peaceful flock of tollers by a long-haired disciple who preached all manner of things not usually accepted by the modern church. The prtacher was one of these fervent fellows who work their hearers up to a frenzy of emotion which culminates In coma. One good brother. In a meeting held recently in a tent near Duke, became so emotion al that he embraced a red hot stove (Which heated the edifice, planting a resounding kiss upon its heated sur face, and, it is contended by some, 'escaped unscathed." - Thi was hailed as miracle. It so excited the folk th, readout.-, that 1 1 here was a regular stampede i- th" in -w religion. Old men i-nd w .!"'.!, i boys an 1 tills Hocked o the ten! and ! became indued with the si.iiit o: th" . pre'icher. Girls would sit under th- ; spell of his oice for hours and final ly swoon iiway into that stale or tt in i . cessary for the sort of "Val val ion" he promised, j Ii was this last fart that pei.nad , ed the mill director that such a faith .was not needed among the people he i strives to prot" t. One young d.iu,,:h jter of a farm, r on the Erwln farms ihad not returned home from church 'Sunday night at midnight. Her mother was fearful, but the father thought she was all right. They waited until 2 o'clock in the morn ing for her return. Then the father went for her. He found her lyin? unconscious on the floor of the tent, with several of the fanatics about her. When this Instance was brought to Mr. Erwln's attention, he declared that such a religion might be all right for the men, but that none of his girls could accept it. So this Is moving week for the fol lowers of the "Church of God." Along with them goes their preacher. Leaders of the cotton rwds trade announce that new prices will be named for percales and fingharos within a few weeks.
