Governor Glenn's inauguration will take place the 11th as planned, but owing to the illness of Governor Aycock's daughter the reception can not be held in the mansion, but will be 'given under the capitol dome. Salisbury Sun: Governor-elect Glenn says he will lose no time in an nouncing the appointments at his disposal after his inauguration. Judging from the fact, as announced, that more than 1,000 applications have been made for the few offices at his disposal, it appears that there are yet many of the faithful unfed.

A prohibition election was held in Scotland Neck in 1903; there was a dispute and threat of a contest. To avoid this both sides agreed that bar rooms should continue unmolested until January, 1905; that in Decem ber, 1904, a mass meeting should de cide whether the bars would be suc ceeded by prohibition or a dispensary. The mass meeting was held the other day and decided for prohibition. Amonfr recent temperance changes, it may be noted that Charlotte and Greensboro went dry with the new year.

Salisbury Sun: And the North Carolina Baptists, too, have called for more stringent divorce laws.
