Sung by Great Soloists, Accompanied by the Symphony Orchestra and Ech oed and Re-echoed in Chorus by Three Hundred Well Trained Voices. People Delighted With the Hospital ity of Hustling CharlotteSale of lil worth Lots. Staff Correspondence State Chronicle. Charlotte, N. C, May 7, IP 1. Wednesday afternoon three thousand gaily dressed people gathered in the city auditorium to listen to the second grand Festival Conceit, and before they could batdly survey the stage the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, with mellow and touching tones on -violins, bassoons, oboes, llutes, clarionets &c, rendered the renowned overture, William Tell, by Rossini. Near the close the violins In unison, with sttmingly muffled strings, carried the vast audience away with their melodious air. At the conclusion the audience broke forth into deafen ing applause and so long did they up the racket that the orcnestra The "Waahinerton Post, in a recent o issue, takes occasion to make some re 11 3c tiona upon the action of the Railroad Commission of North Carolina which the facts in the case do not justify. We are certain that the Post will permit us to correct a few of its statements: 1.

The Commission has not pre Bcribed arbitrary and uniform freight rates. It has not,eicept in one or two in stances, made any ruling at all in regard to freight rates. 3 It baa not fixed any arbitrary rates either for freight or passengers. The rates fixed for passengers will not go iuto effect until the railroads have an opportunity of being heard and if it is shown that the reduction is too great tho rate fixed will be changed.- . 4. It has not commanded the running of through trains to all points without regard to feasibility. 5. It has made no rules or regulations "without any apparent regard to the interests of the roais or their productive capacity." The Post q,ioe3 an article from tho Baltimore Journal of Commerce, tho tenor of which is that the Commissioners are not disposed to do what they can to promote the cfiteiency of the roads, but is actuated by a desire to oppress thom. The Journal of Com merce says: It la not tho duty of tLe Commission to undertake to run the roads; it is its part-alone to - see that the roads under their corporate franchises, do not gouge the people and unjustly discriminate in rates.'! " The Commission is seeking io do this very thing, and so discreet and so con servative have their actions been that the strongest opponents of the law cre ating the Commission have found no room for complaint or criticism. Indeed, the only criticism we have heard upon their actions is that they are too con siderate of the "interest of the roads and their productive capacities." But such criticism is a compliment to their high sense of justice and their desire to administer the law so that there shall be no abatements of railroad development in North Carolina. THE SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST. The Chronicle has given much space this week . to the discussion of educa tional topics by the members of the Methodist Educational Convention at Durham. The discussions took a wide range, bat this fact was demonstrated and it applies to the Methodist and all other denominations as well: that parents will patronizo schools of recog nized excellence. Appeals tc State pride, appeals to denominational love, appeals to encourage earnest and struggling teachers, appeals to build up a local or sectarian college all these pass for naught when compared with excellence In equipment and instruction. North Carolina has much state pride, but North Carolina parents have more pride-in the future of their sons and daughters than in building up any State institution.- North Carolina Methodist and Baptist and Presbyterians have as much denominational pride as any peo pie in the world. We sometimes think Ihey have too mnch. But they love the future of their sons and daughters bet ter than any denominational institution. The lesson learned and impressed at Durham- was the old time lesson of the survivsl of the fittest which has to be learned over again every now and then.. If promoters of any col lege want a large patronage from a par ticular clas?, or all c!ass3s, the way to get it is blazoned oat. It is to make it worthy of the patronage by thorough in struction and perfect equipment. All other attempts will prove to be short cuts to success which will eni in failure. Excellence alone answers the question of how to secure large patronage. Our College Presidents and Trustees realize this truth . more and more every year; and hence the diligent efforts to seenre larger endowments and better equip ments. . m i m - We learn from an ex mi i nation of the tho acts of the last Legislature that the name of the North Carolina In mo Asy ' lum at R tlelgh was not changed, as were the asylums at Morganton and Golds boro, but bears the earn) distinctive title now that was given- it in its original charter; The. name of the Morganton Aeylnm was changed to the "State Eos piul," and the Goldsboro Asylum, for The Turning Point With many a man Is pome trivial act, and a mere recommendation of some friend to try S.

The graceful aria of Uriel" "Now vanish before the holy beams," closing with the description of the flight of evil spirits - is very dramatic and ends with a sudden transformation of joy in view of a ".New created world." Miss Dutton, responded to by the chorus, in her beautiful, soprano air, "The Marvellous Work," represented angels as giving praises for the creation of the second day. Mr. Berneike, of Cleveland, the great est baseo to my knowledge, followed with a grand bass air, "Rolling in Foam ing Billows," in which the . composer depicts the angry waveu vivid ly. This ends with the" softly purling brook" when all becomes quiet and peaceful. In striking contrast is the subsequent air, "With Verdure Clad," the closing of the work-of the third day, which is acknowledged by the chorus of three hundred in the air: V Awake the harp" in which Heaven's vaults resound with praises of "The Creation." A dreamy symphonic move ment ushers in the dawn of ? the fourth day, commencing - with the violins, fol lowed by the violas and 'cellos which made the picture more distinct. The final harmony in the birth of the new day exhibits the compositors . wonderful musical talent. The adagid movement indicates the decline of day when the shadows of evening fall.. The night comes while the chorus renders "The Heavens are telling the glories of God' The fifth and sixth days, when the winged fowls were created, are described in the aria, On Mighty Pens." The charming trio which - follows "Most beautiful appear" is an intro duction to the great chorus, "The Lord is Great, His Glory Lasts Forever." The creation of the beasts is shown in the bass solo in a recitative of marvellous comprehensiveness. The glories of this new created world are set forth by Raphael in a bass air, "Now Heaven in Fullest Glory Shone." The great Aria, "In Native Worth," which announces the creation of man is pure, reverential and dignified, while the formation of Eve, "A Woman Fair," and the homage of the newly created couple in the duet, "On Thee Eich Living Soul Awaits," precedes the work of Creation, vnich is proclaimed in the powerful figured chorus, "Achieved in the Gloriou3 work." The tiaal chorus, "Sing to the Lord, yo Voices All," i3 magnifi:ent and a worthy conclusion to the wondrous composition.
