In Endorsement ot Dr. Kingsbury For The Chair ot Moral and Mental Philosophy. Special Cor. State CnnoNiCLE.) Washington, May 2G. Mr. Bunn re ceived the necessary information .from the lawyers and judges, referred to in his interview of Saturday morning, and promptly introduced the bill to establish a district court at Raleigh Saturday af ternoon. I wish, as a North Carolinian, to en dorse Dr. T. B. Kingsbury for the po sition vacated by the death of the late Dr. Mangum. He is in every way quali fied to adorn the plact , and after many years of hard labor, deserves this recog nition at the hands of his fellow-citizens. At one evening session of the House last week one hundred and thirty-nine private pension buls were passed. As these claims are invariably first rejected for want of satisfactory proof, after careful examination by the pension Bu reau, it would seem that the House bad developed a remarkable capacity for business, to dispose of so great an amount of it in so short a time. THE TELEGRAPH. There is Urgent Reason why the Gov ernment Should own the Telegraph. Special Cor. State Chronicle. Trinity College, N. C, May 27. I write to assure you that I fully appre ciate the urgent editorial in a recent number of the Daily Chronicle on the governmental possession of the tele graph. I shall hope to prepare an article containing the grounds ot oppo sition to the present system. For the present, suffice it to say that one-half of the telegrams I send now reach their destination in time. It takes fifteen hours for a telegram to come from Dur ham to Trinity College and one hour less from Abbeville. 1 find the system practically a rat-hole as far as getting any good out of it is concerned. I be lieve that the usually overworked oper ators are not so much to blame as tho management. I trust that the days of tho Western Union are numbered. John F. Crowell.

The Trustees in SessionSome Inter esting Questions Being Discussed. The trustees of the Baptist Female University met here last night. It was suggested that there was some confusion as to the name of the new in stitution, it being spoken of as both a college and a Juniversity. The) board set tled the matter by officially declaring that it was tho Baptist Jbemale Univer sity. It is an accepted fact that university work cannot be commenced until the new buildings are up and the endowment raised, and it is thought that this work cannot be done tell next year or perhaps before the beginning of 1892. Last night the board discussed the question as to whether or not the build iags now on the site should be rented to any one for the purpose of opening a school, not to be in any way under the control and responsibility of the lessee the school to run until the erection of the new buildings should be begun. The following resolutions was adopted: tkResolved, That the executive com mittee is authorized to lease the prop erty under its control for the purpose of opening a Baptist school or otherwise until such time as this board may be able to erect suitable buildings and open the University for its regular work.

TIIE METHODISTS. An Account of the Proceedings-Rev. J. E. Mann's Death, &c. (Cor. State Chronicle.) St. Louis, Mo., May 23, 1890. The Conference is approaching its close, and business is rapidly disposed of, though every measure is carefully considered. The various committees have nearly completed their work. The committees on Temperance, Christian Sabbath and Spiritual State of the Church have re- ported, and have reaffirmed the position of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, on these questions, as set forth rn previous utterances. In the adoption of reports on Publish ing Interests, Church Extension and Missions, the General Conference pro- vided for enlarged and more extensive machinery for the prosecution of these enterprises. An assistant book agent, one additional Church Extension Secre tary, two additional Missionary Secre taries are to be elected and will take the field throughout the M. E. Church, South, in an active campaign. On yesterday afternoon, after an able sermon by Bishop Keener, the two new V? oViAnc! ( fTo vnrrrkl on1 T?i f r rvoro 1 .1 ttt d BVhop" Hay'good pressed this morning. On taking the chair he was greeted with applause, as was Bishop Fitzgerald, when he ascended the platform and took his seat with the Bishops: The announcement this morning that tho expenses of the me;nbers of the General uonierence wouia De paid m full wa3 received with evident satisfac tion, not altogether f i oia a personal mo tive, but in view of the fact that the Methodists of St. Louis had generously met the deficiency in the fund raised by the conference for this purpose, for which th. conference tendered its grate- 1U1 tnaUKS. m , r . 1 i, 1 education and Sunday-schools were con- sided to-day and rejected.

Bishop Fitzgerald presided at this after noon and evening sessions (23d;. On taking the chair for the first time he was the recipient cf a hearty applause. His first act was to preside over the election of his successor as editor of the Chris tian Advocate. Bishop Fitzgerald announced this (Saturday) morning the death of Rev. James E. Mann, D. D., of North Caroli na Conference, and suggested that the delegation of that conference would take proper action concerning memorial services in this church. The delegation afterwards met and ar ranged for memorial services at Centen ary church, to morrow (Sunday) after noon at 3:30 o'clock, appointing Rev. J. R. Brooks, D. D., to preach the memo rial sermon. The illness of Dr. Mann was short eight or ten days. The force of the attack prostrated him almost at once. Dr. Mann is known to our peo ple. He was born in Chatham county, N. C, December 26, 1832. His age was, therefore, nearly 58 years. From the age of sixteen years he has been connected with the M. E. Church, South. He was sdmPted into the North Caroliua Conference when twenty years old. His record of service is about twenty-one years on stations, eight years on circuit, and eight years as Presiding Elder. Dr. Mann was a fine preacher, popular pastor and a true Christian gentleman.

THE PBESBYTEBUXS. THE ASSEMBLY HAS A BOUT WITH THE RACE QUESTION. The Revision Committee The Closinz Day and Its Interesting Features. (By United Press.) Saratoga, May 27. The report of the committee on the freedxnen as to al lowing colored Presbyteries to appeal di- rectly to the other boards, was against the request. The report was taken up. Dr. Booth opposed discrimination and thought one Presbytery was as good as another. To place the colored Presby- teries in a separate category was unfair, and while it was done the manhood of the colored people was imousnsd and they could not feel at home in the Pres bytenan church. He moved that the request be granted. The vote was taken on Dr. Booth's amendment and the call of division set tled it in the affirmative. Tho vote stood 150 to 145, and was taken amid considerable excitement. The nominating committee announced the following as the committee which is to do the actual work of revision and to report to the assembly of 1891. The S--2Pt? professors W. H.

The matter was referred to the next assembly. n ciosmg tne assembly Dr. Moore said: "Fathers and brethren: The hour has come when whatever of duty we were to cuscnarge ana nave been able to do has been done. Few assemblies over mf t with a heavier sense of responsibility. Few have ever met the hour of adjourn ment with a better feeling of satisfaction, and all ha3 been accomplished in a spirit of brotherly love and a spirit of devo tion to the Master. I speak, I think, your minds when I say, that ever this assembly from the beginning, God has ruled. And now, brethren, in vour wisdom. it has pleased you to appoint a commit tee to revise that good old blue banner that has waved over our heads for so many years. I pray you there shall go up the prayer of your hearts, your churches and your synods to God for this revision committee. Brethren, as you go hence, may God's blessing go with you."

Among the large nnmbar of worthy gentlemen mentioned for the county of fices of Wake county many of whom by qualifications and character would fill the positions with credit to themselves and friends there was one suggested in an article signed Swift Creek who seems to this writer specially fitted for the position named. He is a gentleman of natural business taleat well cultivated with a high sense of honor and withal a most genial and affable companion. He makes friends and acquaintances at the same time. Elect him, and your busines3 relations with the office will of necessity be pleasant. Let Wake Democracy be wise and add strength to the ticket by nominating Mr. E. McK.

The nrass on tho cam pus is being cut, tho boys are studying and getting up their speeches, the girls are looking our for engagements for commencement. Those who attend this year will have several more things to amuse them than usual, and a creed many more conveniences. And we seo no reason why every one who nossiblv can should not come out and help us celebrate. We are sure tha,t the crave as well as the gay, the ngly as well as the beautifulf the poor as well as the rich wi 1 enjoy themselves. Wake For est is thrown open to all, and will give them a right hearty welcome especially, the girls. A commencement would not be a commencement without these fair creatures, and, as we want to have one, we would be unJcr many obligations if they would coma one and all. The programme io unusually attrac tive. Having such men on its list as tho learned Judge D3vis, our own Tom Dixon, who is so well known that no com ment is necessary, and Rev. W. W.

In addition to this, tho Euz.ll.i- Society aud tho rsad ing room and library will be lighted by gas, which has just been brought into use out hero. The Eu. Society chande liers are very elaborate and costly, make an exceedingly fine appL.irancc. For the convenience of the girls and boys, double doors have been cut from each society hall into tho library, thus giving a passage-way on each side of eight feet. This improvement has been long needed, on account of tho narrowness of tho entrances to the halls, as all who have ever attend ed any of the exercises out hero will testify-. Ou th- whole, wo think it was a wiso step, and it is mentioned for tho bandit of thooo who havo ever been troubled by tht; ""Teableness of which we spoke, with i.-.u request that they coljS and i-co for themselves whether it is not a great improvement. The exercises on Monday night (class day) are geneially the most entertaining of all, and we aro sure that the partici pants this year will not fall far below their predecessors. With this truthful, yet imperfect, de scription of our most enjoyable occasion, I will close. Wo are all studying hard now, but we remember that there is "sweet after bitter," ana so are con soled.

The names of several good men have besn mentioned for the office of Regis ter of Deeds for Wake county. But of all these names, the Democrats could not do a wiser act than to nominato Robert A.

First: Ho is a man of an unblemished character, about thirty-eight years old, of a good English education, thoroughly competent, a prominent member of the Farmers' Alliance, a hard-working and successful farmer, and highly esteemed by all know him. Second: H3 i3 the man to break the force of J. P. H. Adams in Cary town ship, his stronghold, and win an assured Democratic victory through out the county.
