MARCHING TO VICTORY.' Some prominent Republicans of Gran ville county have written Congressman urower a letter in wnicn mej veu mm plainly that he had better not be a can didate lor congress, ana assure mm mat heavy majorities will.be piled up against nun. x&eiasYiiie review. This audience was the Twenty-third Street Baptist Church, which has this peculiarity, that its younger members have remained down town and have at tracted other young people to them, while the older members have hived and moved away up town. The church con ducts young men's and young ladies' Bible classes, young people's ana gen was told to hold on and see.' The ser mon was about thirty makers who get thirty cents a dozen for making1, shirts! Pretty soon that man got up and jwent out, and continued his hunt for the 'sinK pie gospel.' It turned out that ; ho was a shirt manufacturer. (Laughter.) What Has Become of the ministers? "The editor has taken a seat in the chariot of the race, and is guiding tha destinies of the world. Thank God tor the good that the daily press is doing. The good newspaper is lifting the world toward God. It is binding the world to day into a more glorious brotherhood.

"The newspaper, in bringing us news about Father Damien dying on the leper island for the outcasts, taught us to love our own Roman Catholic brethren bet ter. The press taught us the horrors of Kara, and is so writing on the wall in the Czar's palace words that portend the crumbling of all human tyrannies. "The daily press is binding the world in a bond of human brotherhood lnspir- We have seen a letter written by Hon. B. H. Bunn to Capt. E. D. Sneed, Sec retary of the Farmers' Alliance of j this county. The. tone of . his letter is manly, clear as well, and cannot be misunder stood. 1 He is in accord with that great organization in their demands and 'will do anvthins? to promote tne interests oi the impoverished xarmers. ounn is true as steel to all his professions and can be depended upon Smithfleld Herald. The expressions of loading Democrats from all sections of the State, who were in Raleigh yesterday in attendance upon the meeting of the State Executive Com mittee, lead ns to believe thai tha politi cal outlook is exceptionally good. Many things have conspired to bring about this desirable state of affairs, but chief among them is the deep-seated unpopu larity of the Republican administration in all sections and among people of all parties. lf a Harbison has no friends except his office-holders, and they' like him Only for the loaves and fishes. No President ever distributed patronage to greater advantage to the opposite party. The Democrats will reap the rewards of Republican mistakes. Some of the ap pointments have been so notoriously bad as ' to -' disgust even Republicans whose - stomachs are . so lined that they can stand a great-deaL Thecen sub appointments have been particularly unsatisfactory to the Republicans.! Be-, sides: they are divided and lighting one another, ux course tou will not last, and ,the lies of November will And the belligerent standing side by sidf, but still the feuda and dissatisfaction is deep au$ titter.' The disappointment of the offloe-seokers counts for little. " It is the discontent of the masses of the Repub lleias that wil f '. weaken them in the fight' Politicians always patch up their differences, but when the rank and file is disgusted with affairs, as the Republi (cans are, there is only defeat ahead for them. On the other hand, the Democratic party is in. excellent, condition.1 The people Of North Carolina believe to-day more c strongly in the principles of Democracy than i they ever did. They understand them better than ever, and are willing to sacrifice more to secure them than ever. They appreciate better the ilia ' wtich the Republican legislation has brought upon them, and they are resolved to secure relief from these burdens. The fight will be for a reform of the tariff, a reform of the ft nancial policy of the government, and a regulation of all' corporations. Upon these points : the party is united, and will go into the campaign irresistible. There js going to be a sharp contest In the nominating' conventions and there are already .more, aspirants than are usually Jn the field. . In some counties ana districts - the; contest will be hot and the . battle: . will be waged fiercely. f Thla, hf' always a good sign.' a" whenever there ate a great many aspirwts,, there is deep interest, and the honor of all who go into the pri inari& ie3geo:tfo see that the nomi nee U electod.

The text was from Acts, viu., 30, 31 "Understandeth thou what thou Read est ? How can I understand unless some one guide me ?'' "The highest single power within the radius of civilization," said the dark, spare, strenuous young preacher, "is the newspaper. The newspaper is modern civilization's heart Through it, as through lungs, go all the varied and complex affairs of our throbbing civiliza tion. All ranges of human thought come within its borders. It is a reflex of human life. Necessarily it represents the good and the bad. The world is not making a ieord of perfection every day in the year. The Record of Pain. "Evil sometimes seems to predomi nate. That is not due to- the perversity of the editor. The recording of pain is a part of God's plan for the elimination of pain. The happy man has no his tory. When he gets to where every thing is happy, a man's history stops. Evil is deemed worthy of record, becan its record comes within the divine plan. let the world is not worse than ever. The press of to day throws light upon human life. For the first time people begin to see what the world really is. When pajn and evil and sorrow are elim inated from human life, (Jod will furnish a new principle for the forming of history and the conduct of newspapers. Boys before me this .morning are giving their lives for their loved ones; girls are toil ing, toiling, toiling in unrecorded pat ience and heroism. Not until tragedy too deep for utterance has touched them will they be brought to the world's no tice. , Responsibility for the Record "You are conjointly responsible with the editor for what he prints in his pa per. Yon are wearied with the awful record. Who is responsible? Who is re sponsible for the 'dives" and the saloons? I tell you, men, you are responsible. You tolerate them, you go by them, you don't vote to put them down. There is a row down in the City Hall a sick ening record of rottenness and crooked ness, comes out. You are responsible. Can you complain of the paper whicl gives you tne record 4 'The daily press is also a direct power. It moulds and fashions human life on human life. That man in the office has his hand on the lever. Into his mind pours the affairs of human life. They come out either purified or viler than they went in. The jnan in that chair is responsible. Let him publish. It is his duty to publish evil so that it corrects evil; good, so that , it shall reproduce itself. If he does not God shall hold him responsible. But let him make the record as the Bible makes it the words of the devil as the words of the devil, the words of angels as the words of angels. The newspaper must appeal to the moral consciousness of the constit uents. Not until it becomes a teacher does the sheet become a newspaper.

There was an incident on' the floor of the House yesterday afternoon which developed in a most remarkable degree, the scriptural ignorance of our; great statesmen. Mr. Chandler, of Georgia, bet Mr. Grimes, of Georgia, that he could not select a single member of the House who could repeat the ten com mandments. The bet was quickly taken. Mr Grimes turned and glanced around the house to see whom he would select.

A If EW DISCOVERY ; by a In North Carolina History Made Jtaieta-a JLawyer. (Elizabeth City Falcon.) - That most agreeable, brilliant and at tractive gentleman, Mr. F. H. Bnsbee, of Raleigh, spent some days in this sec tion recently., He was the centre of at traction wherever he appeared. He got off a new list of local history for the benefit of Mr .Andrew Brown, the pres ident of the K. C. 8. & It. Co., that was enjoyed freely by the entire party. We were speeding aronnd Roanoke Island while Bnsbee waa giving a most graphic recital of the expedition of Sir Walter Raleigh, in the midst of which, and without a change of expression to indi cate that he was deviating from history. Busbee cays . that immediately upon landing on Roanoke Island, - Sir, Walter Raleigh, climbed the tallest tree on the island, looked north, east, south and west, and exclaimed, "great soott, what a fine lot of juniper." .

Who fulfills that office to-day t The men in the top of the great buildings down town. Some years ago the Tweed ring was ground into powder. Who did it ? The preacher? No, the newspaper. Then the courts had to- be reformed and corruption smitten in high places ? Who did that ? The newspaper. Ezekiel saw a vision- wheels within wheels, wheels alive, wheels fnll of eyes. ( He foresaw the modern newspaper. W here are the eyes that never sleep ? In the reporters that ply these streets, searching all the phases of human life; - "In the degeneracy of the modern pul pit, the daily press is doing the work of God, as the pnlpit is not doing it Where is the power that guides ? In the news paper. Religion, politics, society, eco nomics, come witlm the range of its power as of no other. It is the editor who guides.

"The great preachers of the past did not seek to please everybody. Jesus Christ was not such a preacher. Paul was not such a preacher. When Paul went into a town he had a row. The authorities complained this fellow is turning the world upside down.' Jesus cried, 'Woe unto you scribes, Pharisees, oypocntesr now coarse i now un christian !

When men in the pulpit are not' doing their work as bravely as the press is do ing it they had better keep quiet. Men stand up and talk twaddle from one year's end to another.
