Hall, of Greensboro, died Fri day. The oeath of no resident of Greens boro would carry sorrow to so large a number of people.

Mr. Donald Cameron, who tame direct ly from Nairn, Scotland, to work on the State Capital when it was building (1837) and lias since resided five miles west of Raleigh, died at 10 o'clock Monday, Nov. 10th. lie was 77 years old, an upright man and highly esteemed.

Some of the Men V V ere There , Some ol the I nines that Here Done mill H Little of hat Was Said. To The Cmuonk lk : "Baptist, Baptist til! I die," is the first line of a negro tunc I hear the boys who go to the minstrel shows (I never goj si tig as they pass my house. Some of them whittle it and carry on the song "Been baptized in the Bap tist faith; Still on the Baptist side.'' If vou, Mr. Editor, could have len in Reidsville last week while you would not have heard this minstrel song, the sight of this large body of earnest, intelligent Baptists would have brought it to your recollection and kept it ringing in your head. ltieJiaptist Mate Convention is not a law-making Ixxly, but it in effect makes the laws by creating so strong a public senti ment in favor of all kinds of church work that the churches follow with the laws. When the Convention was called to or der by President John C. Scarlxirough, who is more noted for his strong sense and good deeds than for the taste he displays in parting his hair (which by the way is never parted exactly straight) there were 10!) delegates and preachers present. The number was increased dailv. Mr. Scar trough's sonorous voice was heard and Ins tall form seen even before the Conven tion had been called to order. He is; man who attracts attention anywhere not so much tor personal pulchritude (his wife thinks he's the handsomest man in the State and everybody knows he's as good looking as Brother Bailey), but for ins strong I eat. u res and a kind of earnest ness and il tensity about him that makes you think he' s no ordinary man anil that what he attempts he will accomplish -and you think right too. In calling the Con vention to order he made a short speech sensible and to the point. He was suffer ing with a felon on his thumb which de manded a good share of his attention. On the cars one of the brethren had put his fine beaver in the "pigeon hole con traption" over the se:'sand when the cars began rolling, the beaver fell down and struck the felon giving Mr. S so great pain that I do believe if Ik; hadn't been President of the Convention he would have said "really." But he didn't. The owner of the beaver hat so far forgot that he was a preacher as to make a pun to the effect that he felt like a felon because his hat had hurt Mr. Scarborough's felon. But to the Convention. Somewhere .about the first came the election of oflicers, which resulted as follows: Rev. C. T. Bai ley was elected President; First Vice-President, Col. L. L. Polk; Sec ond Vice-President, Dr. T. J I. Pritchard; Third Vice-President, Dr. J. D. llufham; Treasurer, F. H. Briggs; Recording Secre taries, N. B. Broughton, G. W. Greene; Auditor, W. N. Jones; Corresponding Sec retary, Jno. E. Ray; Auditor S. S. Supply Store, John T. Pullcn. Rev. J. M. McManaway preached the in tioductory sermon. I heard a competent critic say "Not a commou-pluce thought in it. Strong and original sermon it was." The pastor, Rev. W. L. Wright, in cor dial and pleasant words gave a hearty welcome pressed down and running over and all the good people of Reidsville gave the welcome in many good things to tempt the palate, as well as in words. Financial and Statistical. j The statistical report showed 91,947 Baptist communicants in this Convention, i 18,:J34 in Western North Carolina, 1,143 in Waccamaw Association, and 110,699 colored Baptists, making a total of 222, 123 in the State. Twenty-two new church es, the average cost of which was $800, have been built and paid for this vear. $41, 949.90 were expended for State mis sion work. An eloquent appeal was made by Dr. llufham he is probably the most influential Baptist East of Raleigh in be half of the Greenville caurch. The facts are about these: A $7,000 church was con tracted for,but a $11,000 church was built. $5,000 is now due on it Col. Isaac A. Sugg, who is not a Baptist, kindly advanc ed $5,000 to build it and lias a mortgage on the church to that amount. He needed the money and expected it to be paid. The Baptists owed him a great debt of thanks for coming to their aid, and ought now to raise the amount and pay the mortgage. $4,400 were pledged. $4,500 were pledged for State missions the coming year. Mr. Jno. E. Ray, who has proven an efficient worker and who is perhaps the best in formed man in the church on the mission field, was re-elected to manage and carry forward this special work. $750 was raised for Foreign missions. A resolution was adopted pledging the pastors to try to raise $1,000 for the Board of Home mis sion by Jan. 1st, 1880. Going to Convert the "Heathen Chinee." The most interesting meeting of the ses sion was held Friday night. Revs. D. W. Herring ami R. T. Bryan, two devoted young men, who will shortly leave for the Mission Field in China, made interesting, enthusiastic and thrilling addresses, as did also Uev. S. C. Clopton, of Richmond, Va. 1 never saw people so "enthused" (excuse the word) on the subject. An ap peal for contributions was made and in a few minutes the collectors reported $750 in cash, a fine gold watch, a pair of gold bracelets which cost $35 in Paris, rings and other jewelry. One minister's wife, thoroughly imbued with the spirit of "Go ye into all the world," put her engagement ring in the basket as her contribution. Rich men and poor gave "as the Lord had prospered them," and some gave liberally who needed new clothes or necessaries at home. There was self-sacrifice and love for the Master exhibited in giving in larger measure than I have ever before seen. Mr. Bryan in his talk said that people feel that Gov. Jarvis and Dr. Curry have been honored in being sent to a foreign coun try. "How much more honored are they," he asked, "who go to a foreign land sent by their Master i" Mr. Herring thought the reason people did not give more largely to convert the heathen was because they did not really believe they would be lost without the gospel. He argued that the heathen would surely perish without the Bible, and said "If the heathen could be saved without the gospel, then God should have kept it from us." These two breth ren, preparing to leave home and friends, to go where duty calls, were heard with marked interest and their speeches breath ed true devotion to the cause of Christ. Wake Forest College. Rev. Dr. llufham read the report of Wake Forest College. lie reported an in crease of students, commented on their good behavior; showed the endowment fund of the college to be $103,000; valued the entire property, including the endow ment, at $148,000; opposed the free tuition idea at the State University; and declared that Baptists were compelled to compete with the State. I did not hear the discus sion on this report but gather the follow ing extracts from the Biblical Recorder: Rev. Dr. llufham said: "Regarding the University, I have only to say what the Baptists over the State are saying. I was the second man to put in print a word favoring the revival of the University. But when the State said, we are going to make it a free school giving free tuition to rich men's sons, and making the poor to foot the bill, I opposed it. They withdrew it at once; but after wards carried it through. We have won the right to live. But for the fact that Wm. D. Moseley, the speaker of the Sen ate, being the son of a Baptist deacon, the charter of Wake Forest College would have been refused. We no longer pay $36,000 in a single year to support the Episcopal ministry the millinery estab lishment. It remains for the Baptists to send their children to Baptist schools. The manwho sends his child to a school where he is ruined in thought and heart, is unfaithful to Ch-ist and to himself. A college is a hard place for sp rituality. From a school where no attention is paid to this, where infidelity is rife, we cannot expect anything good. I bless God that I went to Wake Forest College. If you leave out what Wake Forest has done in a his tory of ou State, it would be incomplete and unworthy of being read." Rev. C. Durham said: "The three last messages of our Gover nors have spoken of the Fniversity as at the head of the public school system when they know that it has no more to do with the public school system than Wake Forest College. Do you not see how the thing goes 'i As I think of these things, my mind goes back to the time our fathers backs were lashed and they imprisoned be cause they were Baptists. My mind goes back to the time when our fathers asked the Legislature to give us a charter for our College. It was granted after a tie vote had been decided by the presiding officer and thus it was granted for ten years, we to pay tax on the property. Now this same class of men are trying to manip ulate our educational interests. Even in the blessed work of establishing an orphan- ' age to care for our orphan children, they opposed us and misrepresented us in the pbbhc press. The Baptist Orphanage. The meeting to further this institution, the success of which hasalrealy been phe nomenal, was held Saturday night, Rev or. iiutham presiding, speeches were made by Revs. Van Deventer, Carroll and Nelson, and Mr. J. II. Mills closed with one of his characteristic, original speeches. It was well received and made a deep im pression in favor of the orphanage. He said there were 1,200 orphans in the State and the Oxford Asylum could not care for them all. It was reported that $7,196 had been raised for the work and two of the buildings are completed. The orphanage will be opened as soon as Mr. J. II. Mills, the Superintendent, has enough funds to justify it. The Personnel ol the Hotly. I had intended to furnish your readers witli pen pictures of the leaders Bailey, who wields an influence second to no man in the church; llufham, called in tho E;ist "the Baptist Bishop;" Durham, as vigor ous and aggressive as the town (Durham) in which he resides; Broughton, quiet, earnest and worthy no better man in the body or anywhere; Skinner, humorous, smart and long headed; McManaway, who looks through his glasses in a way peculiar to himself and sees everything that's going on studious, original and progressive; McDuflie, imbued with the spirit of prog ress as is his town (Henderson); Briggs, who handles the money and manages the finances admirably; Brewer and Hobgood, foremost in educating Baptist young wo men; Col. Polk, who presided over several sessions witn grace ana dignity; J . it. Mills, the only original no man loves the orphans more or will sacrifice more for them; Heck, the liberal and wide-awake layman; Vann, the persuasive and elo quent preacher; Noah Biggs, the pillar of the Scotland Neck church; Pritchard, de servedly regarded as one of the ablest men in the denomination; Whitfield, earnest, faithful and a good organizer--these and others were in my thoughts and I intend ed to tell your readers the manner of men they are and what they are doing but tfie above must suffice. Hear the Conclusion, The Convention raised in cash and pledges over $13,000. It heard a number of eloquent and able sermons and ad dresses. It mapped out work for the next year which will advance the denomination wonderfully. It enjoyed a season of grace. It made a lasting impression for good on the people of Reidsville. It will meet next year at Wilmington to review the coming year's work and plan even a larger amount of work for 1887. It was a delightful oe-' casion. Take it all in all I have seen no better. X. WHAT PEOPLE TALK ABOUT. Some Things The Chronicle Man Sees and Hears in His Perambulations. "The crops down in Beaufort this year were cut short," said Rev. E. L. Pell, who was in Raleigh yesterday en route to the Methodist Conference. This is the result throughout the East, and "all the coun ties have been heard from." "How is the attendance at the old fa mous Chowan Baptist Female Seminary this yeari"?asked the Chronicle man in con versation with Principal Brewer the other day. "Better than it has been in thirteen years," was the reply. Under Prof. Brew er's management the school has taken a new lease of life and is prospering finely. "The best racing I have ever seen, "said Mr. Ivan Proctor (at the Farmers' ware house), who has just returned from a visit to Nash, "was at the Rocky Mount Fair last week, and it was nearly the fastest that has been seen in the State. 'Maggie' made a mile in 2:32. It was exciting and the tremendous crowd watched with breathless interest. The Fair was a suc cess, financially and otherwise." 'Who's the new Judge ?" asked a prom inent lawyer upon his arrival in Raleigh Tuesday. "No appointment yet," we re sponded. "That's the way with Scales," he said. "I don't find but one fault with him, and it is his slow way of making ap pointments. When the Legislature crea ted three new districts we thought he never would appoint the judges, and after they were appointed he took weeks to appoint the Solicitors. He knew the men whom he intended to .appoint, but he waited and waited long enough to allow some feeling to be gotten up in two dis tricts, and that's what I am afraid he is going to do now. But I'll guarantee," continued the gentleman, "when you do hear of the appointment you will say that it is eminently the one wisdom dictated. He is rather slow I wish he would be in a greater hurry but he is always sure. Watch and see if he's not." THE INDUSTRIAL SCHOOL The Committee Appointed and Called to Meet, Tuesday, Nov. tilth. Capt. Coke issued the following call, as chairman of the mass-meeting on the In dustrial School : To Mr. Wrm. S. Primrose, Capt. S. Ashe, Rev. C. T. Bailey, 1). D., Mr. C. Latta, Capt. E. R. Stamps, Rev.
