IIOIIHC. ; Washington, D. 0., Sept. 27. -In the House thi morning, after reading and approval of the journal, Mr. McMillin, ot Tennessee, withdrew his demand for the readinir of the conference report on the tariff bill, in view of the fact that the report was printed in the Record. Mr. McKinley said that it was under stood that the Republican members do sired no more than ono hour for debate. He asked that the debate should continue for live hours, two hours to bo given to the friends and three hours to the op ponents of the report. Mr. McMillin protested against a liin itat ion being put upon the discussion, bat euggested that if such a limitation were to bo made, the hour should be fixed at G o'clock. Mr.McKinley i c iuiesc d in this suggest tion and asked for consent that the pre v" Yious question be consented as ordered tat that hour. To this Mr. McMillin objected, where upon Mr. McKinley gave notice that he wonld demand the previous question at half past five o'clock. Mr. McMinley then made a statement .of the changes between the provision of the House bill .the Senate. Mr. Flower, of New York, character ized the measure as a cyclone bill. .Mr. Turner, of Georgia, criticised the majority for limiting tho time for debate. . 1 1 - a. ; i preached to the congregation of the Twenty-third-street Baptist church in Association Hall Sunday upon the Lodge Federal election bill, better known as the force bill. Before Mr. Dixon concluded his brief remarks upon this very widely discussed measure he succeeded in convincing his hearers that personally he regarded the bill as most iniquitous in its tendencies The preacher inquired whether his au dience believed that the measure de served the support of Christian man hood. "It has been suggested to me," he went on, "that this question was a dangerous one for me to discuss from the pulpit, because it was purely a polit ical one and because politics has noth ing to do with religion. I protest against this decision. No politics can be true politics save it bs based upon moral principles.' Mr. Dixon then told his congregation just what the force bill was, and then declared that it was a bad measure. "It is radical," he continued, "and cannot bo harmonized with the provisions of the old Federal Constitution. It seems to me that it dot s not in any sense solve the questions which have been raised to give it an excuse for being. It is purely a political compromise, and is in no sense trlo ballot, reform, which .shall AN APPEAL FOB THE GIRLS.

A Fartisan Measure. "I object to it because it is a product No Nation Ever Rose to True Great ness that Did Not Educate Its Wo men. (Special Cor. State Chronicle.) Dubham, N. 0'., Sept. 25. I have read with great interest and rising hope the able article from the pen of Prof. Mc Iver, in a recent number of the Chron icle, upon the important subject of ed ucating the girls. In one or two little talks at school opening? during the lat ter part of the summer, I uttered the same sentiments which he has so ele gantly and gracefully elaborated in print. And I trust that his appeal will, as good seed, bear much fruit. The State of North Carolina cannot afford, in this progressive age, to allow the present condition of things to go on much longer. If the girls are al lowed to grow up without education, what hope can there be that the next generation will not be as ignorant as this? If the growth of ignorance is to be checked, have we not inverted the phil osophical order of procedure? It is as if one should seek to kill a noxious tree by lopping off the boughs, or to purify wa ter by working on the stream. Reverse the method, or rather equalize it, and educate the girls and the boys of the next gereration will be set forward; fo" an educated mother will find some means to educate her boys and girls. In passing through the rural districts of the State, my heart has been pained to see so many girls, from twelve to twenty yeais of age, growing up in com parative ignorance; handsome, full of life, naturally intelligent, but destined to mere drudgery, and in the next gen eration their children to be "hewers of wood and drawers of water" for other people. In the name of humanity, let the girls have a fair chance. A civilization that is soggy with ignor ance is wickedly low and difficult to lift. Our efforts for its betterment have been largely barren of good results be cause we have thrown our power upon the wrong end of the lever. We have never yet come in full view of the power of woman. The methods of the ancients still cling to us, and we wabble and stagger under insoluble problems. Ed ucate the girls and they will lift the men: "the hand that rocks the cradle rocks the world." No nation,, ever rose to true greatness that left the women in moral and intellectual darkness. Woman registers the high-water mark in all true progress of the race. We may jokirgly taunt the Germaas with being beer-drinkers, but they inherit the blood of one of the noblest races that ever gave trouble to the tyranny of the Cellars; and their women were noted for two things, first their natural nobility of mind, and secondly, for being worthy to be consulted by their husbands in every matter ot importance. Gibbon says that the German women were regarded as possessing a sanctity and a wisdom more than human. But in a high and complex civilization like ours, woman can only assume ner NEGRO VS. BROWER.

Mr. Cummings, of New York, de clared that the doctriDe of American protection was the most pernicious that bad ever permeated American people. Hr. Fitch and Mr. Covert, of New York, detailed their opposition to the measure in its present shape, and it was defended by Mr. Hitt, of Illinois. Mr. Peters, of Kansas, while criticis ing certain portions of the bill gave his Adherence to its general features. Jlr. Sweeney, ot Iowa, while objecting to certain provisions of the measure, believed that in it the voice of the peo ple found expression. Mr. Dolivar, of Iowa, believed that the pending bill was the most complete and national measure which had ever been presented to Congress in the whole history of tho country. Xir. Wilkinson, of Louisiana, argued against the sugar schedule and the duty placed on binding twine. Mr. Coleman, oi proper place when qualified by educa tion to meet its responsibilities, lhe mass of the race cannot rise if the women are kept in the outer court of knowledge.

The graded schools and seminaries furnish them opportunities of which the country girls are deprived. And we shall make slow progress until the State wakes up to the necessity of making better provisions for educating the girls. Our most excellent and capable super intendent, Maj.

The South Must Royally Entertain 100 to 500 People Who Will Come to Inspect The South's Iron and Coal Resources. By United Press. Baltimore, Sept. 27. The Manufac turer's Record, in its issue of this week, Louisiana, inquired I announces that during the month of Oc tober, there will be a visit paid to the United States by a large number of European iron and steel manufacturers; the whole number of foreign delegates being probably four hundred. An ex cursion has been arranged to the Lake Superior and northwestern iron fields. The Record, however, anxious that the excursion should be extended to the South, has been in active correspondence with the promoters of the trip, and has received assurances that one hundred and eighty-four of the delegates will go on the Southern trip. To these may be added probably one hundred and twenty-five .Americans who will join in mak ing tho trip. The South must expect therefore, the paper says, "to royally entertain four hundred to five hundred guests. It is gratifying to note that many of the most distinguished iron and steel makers of Great Britain, including such men as Sir Jame3 Kitson, President of the British Iron and Steel Institute; J. S.

The Colored Man's Candidate Gives the Little Czar Merry Thunder The Negroes Cry, "Down With Brower" "Give us Moore"-A Hot and Seeth ing Time in the Fifth District. Special Cor. State Chronicle. Winston, N. C, Sept. 27 The storm came, the thunder rolled along tho mountains, but now there is a calm sig nificant of a funeral day. Never before in the history of Forsyth politics has the county heard such cam paign oratory a3 was heard in the court house here last night. As was announced in my letter yes terday, the negro candidate for Congress C. H. Moore, accompanied by a man named Granderson, came up from Greensboro for tLe purpose of speaking to the negroes of Forsyth county on the Brower ring. At exactly eight o'clock the colored band played on the green while the negroes and about fifty white men en tirely filled the court room. It was evi dent that at least half of the negroes were for Brower but it was a sad night for them. After being introduced and declared himself a but not in favor of every little devil that tne party chose to run for public office. In speaking of the denunciations heaped upon him by men of the Brower stripe, he declared that there was not a soul in all the "world that could point to an act of his that was a dishonor to himself as a man or his race. "I cannot be intim idated nor scared off by such unprinci pled demagogues as John M. Brower, and despite the calumny that has baen made I thank God that truth, crushed to the earth, will rise again." He denied the charge that he had ever voted save for a Republican, and after speaking of the charge made that he was running on Democratic money he turned to some of the Brower men who were hissing and asked them who paid them to go about saying so. He spoke of his race as being cradled in Republicanism and asked the negroes about him if they had sworn eternal al legiance to that party because the Re publican party of 1SG1-G5 had freed them. He showed the difference be tween the party of '05 and the party of '90, and declared that the warfare now raged was to let that party of '90 under stand that the negro knows his rights ana dares mamtain tnem. "We as a down trodden race, have not encugh true dignity or character, fortitude and love of moral justice, and though some may call me a traitor ot tne nepuoiican party, thank God they cannot charge me with being a traitor to my race. (Loud applause ) I would rather stand alor e in the fight than to be counted with the thousands who allow men of the Brower stripe to stand upon their necks and whip them with the Darty lash. (Cheers by some and hisses by the Brower crowd.) The negro is waking up m all other lines save politically and in that we are retrogradinK. What does Brower care for the negro after the election? Why, the darkey shouts himself hoarse over the victory while Brower goes about laughing in his sleeve. He is a vile ingrate and has so treated my race that I shall, with all the intelligence and manhood of my nature, protest against him, fight him to his teeth until the wrong has been lighted. Revolutions never go backward, but for ward. A revolution has started in tho old Fifth to-day that cannot be cried un der. You fellows that are trying to clog its wheels had better get out of its way or else be rolled over." Moore then began his attack on Brower. He charged him with being a dishonest man, a liar and a slanderer tf his race. Hero viewed his record in Con gress and, mid the wildest of excitement in tne large crowd, branded mm as a base misrepresentation of the people that elected him. Winding it all up he declared that" whatever may come and under what ever circumstances I may be forced, by the help of God, Charles H. Moore will be found in the field as long as Johnie Brower." The negroes applauded him loudly and cheers went up from the ex cited crowd. But the greatest speech wa3 yet to come. Laying aside all race prejudice, I must say that one of the strongest, most caustic political addresses I have ever heard was delivered by Prof. Gran . derson, of Bennett Seminary. As he arose his eyes, like two great orbs shin ing through a jet black sky and his teeth with an unusual brightness and white ness, he attracted the closest attention from the crowd. He went for Brower rough shod and did him up on the first round. Ycu never heard such yelling. He would go off on a beautiful flight of eloquence for one moment, and the next would find him in his old dialect style, probing huge and stubborn facts into the heads of the negroes that were now in a continual uproar. I wish I could print his speech in full. It was speaking with wit and beautified by flights of splendid word painting and altogether a regular mixture of camp- meeting and barbecue. He began call ing upon them to .answer some questions, which they would do in concert with a loud voice. Finnally he asked them how many were going to vote for Moore, when every negro in the house raised his hand and hurrahed themselves hoarse. It was no time for Brower Republicans. The truth had sunk deep into their minds and they could not help but see it. Never did you hear such shouting. They would yell, "down with Brower," "give us Moore!" "Hurrah for the colored man's party." M. Victor. Divine a. m. Services Michael CITY CHURCHES TO-DAY. Services will be held in our city churches to-day as follows : EPISCOPAL.

State Chroxicle.1 Not very long ago we called attention to the exceedingly late hour in which the stores are kept open in Raleigh on Sat urdays. So late that it would be impos sible to keep them open any longer with out running into Sunday itself twelve o'clock at night. We are gratified to find a general and hearty endorsement of the suggestion that all business sus pend at 9 o'clock Saturday nights. Not only did the clerks of the stores, but sev eral of our merchants said it would be one of the best things that could take place. No ono class would welcome more readily than many of the store keepers themselves. There are but two questions to be set tled for this much-to-be desired end to be obtained. The first is: Will the pub lic sustain it? The next: Will all the store-keepers fall in line and do it? The first will take care of itself if the second can only be brought about. Every in telligent man must certainly see the rea sonableness of giving our merchants and their employees an opportuuity of spend ing an hour or two with their family at the close of the week's toil; and of get ting home on Saturday night instead of the early hours of Sunday; also afford ing them time to sleep so that they can rise in time for the services of the Lord's House.feeling refreshed fromafull night's slumber. The voice of humanity and re ligion pleads for this charge. But will the merchants all fall in line and do it? We hope so. We know that several are anxious for the change to be brought about. There can be no advantage to any one in keeping open and necessitat ing the others to do so, as all business can just as easily be done before nine o'clock on Saturday night as it can before twelve o'clock, and certainly will be all done if stores are closed at that time, while the benefit is not a little in the gas saved, and more especially in the rest obtained. We hope that considera tion for themselves, for those who work for them and for the ceneral good will help them all to stand together in clos ing their stores not later than nine o'clock Saturday nights. How can it ba brought about? It was well said that "the best way to resume is to resume;" and the best way to do this is to do it. We would be glad to have tho merchants of the Board of Trade bring this about. But it has been sug gested bj some of our business men that it be brought about by their customers. Why not let the good ladies of Raleigh take this in hand and help to secure thia needed boon. In tho meantime let us all help the good work along by making no purchases after nine o'clock Saturday pastor. All cordwlly invited to attend these services. PRESBYTERIAN. First Presbyterian Church.

MEET- Protracted Services With Increasing Interest--About Forty Professions of Faith. For three weeks past, nightly services have been held at Central M. E. Church, conducted by its earnest and vigorous pastor, Rev. Dr. L. L. Nash. From the very first the services were very warm and interesting, and as they were con tinued they grew in interest. The congregation of this church are a, working people. Collectively and al most individually, they work with a view to impress erratic people of the folly and danger of the ways, and seek to lead them into better paths. The moral good and its consequent blessings upon the community can scarcely be estimat ed. They have reclaimed numbers of people from sloughs of evil and degra- aation, ana causea tnem to develop in to usetul and worthy citizens. The indefatigable and earnest pastor has done nearly all of the preaching du ring this long series of meetings, and that preaching has had wonderful effect. He has been so powerful and interesting in presenting gospel truths, and people have shown such a continued anxiety to hear him, that it has been thought best to keep the meetings going on for this long time. Night after night people have listened to his convincing words, and night after night people have arisen and asked that the prayers of the church people be given them. On Friday night a large number of people went up to the altar and asked Gods people to pray for them that their lives might bs better and more usetul. Col. L. L. Polk to Speak.

A PROPOSED MONUMENT In Honor ot the Confederate Dead Raleigh the Proposed Location. Some months ago the Ladies' Memo rial Association, of Raleigh, decided that a monument ought to be erected at some public place to honor and perpetuate the memory of the soldiers who fell during the war. This decision was reached from the act that while there were many shafts and monuments in various cemeteries in the State in honor of the fallen brave, there was not, at any public place in tho State, any monument of general com memoration. The association appointed a commit tee consisting of Messrs. W. J. Peele, H. M. Cowan and H. W. Ayer to report a plan by which tho monument could be secured, tc. The committee has sent in its report and suggests the following: That a monument be erected to cost 810,000. That it bo erected in Capitol square, Raleigh.
