The Christian church a handsome and
imposing edifice on llillsboro street,
was dedicated Wednesday, at 11 a. m.
There were ten Christian ministers pres
ent, and the occasion was one of profit
and pleasure. Uev. I). A. Long, President
of Antioch College, Ohio, (a native North
Carolinian) preached the dedicatory ser
mon. It is pronounced an able and elo
quent effort. At night Rev. W. V. Staley

half of the city ministry, welcomed Dr.
Afctple to Raleigh, in a model address. Ser

Charlotte, besides the resident clergy were
present. The sermon was preached by
Rev. Jos. B. Cheshire, Jr., and the candi
dates were ordained in a most impressive
manner by Bishop Lyman, in the presence
of a large congregation. At night the
congregations of the Good Shepherd and
Christ chinches worshiped at the last
named church. Dr. Carmichael preached
an excellent sermon, the music was truly
beautiful, and an offering of .$75 was
made to St. John's hospital. This was a
notable day in the history of the Episcopal
church in Raleigh.
Munificent Devises.

the Episcopal church and the University.

and 1,400 acres of land to the University,

to the education of such young men as the
faculty name. She made the Episcopal
church, of which she was a consistent and
useful member, her residuary legatee.
Death, the Reaper, Still is Reaping
Mr. I-emuel Bingham, aged 91, Judge
Furehes' father-in-law, died in Statesville
last week. He was a native of Massachu
setts. Dr. J. K. Hall, of Greensboro, died Fri
day. The oeath of no resident of Greens
boro would carry sorrow to so large a
number of people. An excellent physician,
a man of genial disposition, and true
christian character (a devout Presbyteri
an) he was held in the highest esteem by
all classes.
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. His funeral
was preached at the Presbyterian church
by Dr. Watkins Wednesday morning. His
son, Mr. Wm. Cameron, of Thomasville,
Ga., was called to his bedside, but did
not reach the city until after he had
breathed his last.
Mrs. Annie B. Durham, daughter of
Rev. W. B. Harrell, of Thomasville, sister
of Eugene G. Harrell, of Raleigh, and wife
of Mr. I. W. Durham, of Winston, died at
her homo on the lGth inst., in the nine
teenth year of her age. She was married
about three years ago and had been for
two years confined to her room by a most

If vou, Mr. Editor, could have len in

of this large body of earnest, intelligent
Baptists would have brought it to your
recollection and kept it ringing in your
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.
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."
