Gut eut-cf-State exchan ges are respectfully requested to assist us also in giving publicity to this paragraph. All of our tcrheel readers abroad know of many who were formerally frcm North Carolina. Please send their names on a postal. Ve shall commence shortly send ing out statements to those of our subscribers who are in arrears for as much as a year. To do this entails upon us considerable trouble, time and expense. We earnestly ask our delinquent readers to help us avoid this by making a remittance at once. We hope every suBSCRiBER who is not receipted for the present year will remit something, be it great or small. Ask yourself if you owe us anything, and it you do, get a postal note, money order or registered letter and forward it to our address. A failure to remit will force usl. to discontinue sending the paper to you. We must clear our lists of all habitual delinquents. Are you oriel As the time trouble and expense required to send out statements to de linquents is necessarily great, postal cards will be used this year, instead of envelopes and slips. We are glad to say that many of our subscribers are remitting and we hope to hear from many more before we commence send ing out statements. The colored people of the State are reported to have made a very credit able display at their recent Industrial Fair held in Raleigh. The colored Recorder of Deeds of the District of Columbia,' J. C. Matthews, gave $50 to be used as prizes. The New Berne Journal pointedly remarks, "A successful exhibition of their products as farmers is worth much more to thera than electing a colored man; to Congress." In the departure of Col. F. A. Olds from the Raleigh News- Observer, that "erratic contemporary" loses the best man on its staff and the only one who has had considerable journalistic ex perienced The objection of the "man in charge of the paper," to Cel. Olds conducting outside newspaper corres pondence, which we learn is the cause of the change, is only in perfect keeping with the domineering, over bearing tendencies which have ever been characteristic of the paper. We are glad to know that Col. Olds is succeeding admirably with his Bureau of Correspondence and his ability and enterprise are deserving of all the suc cess he attains in his new departure A rumor comes from Durham that Mr. Julian S. Carr, of that city is also an aspirant for Senator Ransom's place. THE BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION The Baptist State Convention has been in session at Wilmington the past week, and it is said to be a gath ering distinguished for its intelligence and impressive personel. The princi pal matters under discussion, are as follows : Wake Forest College and the en largement of its usefulness. Three new professors have recently been added to its faculty, representing two of the leading universities of the world. The new laboratory is near ing completion and will cost about ten thousand dollars, thus offering facili ties for scientific instruction which will increase largely the capabilities of this admirable institution. The re cent and continual expansion of the curriculum and the steady improve ment in all of the steady improve ment in all of the several departments has and will continue to bring grow ing patronage. The matter which will probably command the attention of the Con vention will be the endowment of the "Students' Aid Association," and for which purpose it is asked that $50, 000 be raised. It is the aim of the advocates of this feature to supply from this fund $160 annually to each student desiring an education and an-, able to meet the necessary expenses. Six per cent interest is charged, with good security. This is a new depar ture and will tend largely to increase the attendance at Wake Forest. The discussions of State missions will come up for consideration, like wise the Sunday School work and the Baptist Orphanage, which is located at Thomasville, will come in for a generous share of deliberation and debate. This is a new and favorite scheme of the Baptists and which will tend to accomplish much good. Forty five pupils are in attendance, there are five buildings completed and two more nearly finished and there is a liberal fund for its maiutanaace. From advance sheets of the report, we glean the following interesting statistics, showing the strength of the churches, their membership, &c, in this convention : "Last year 32 as sociations co-operated with this con vention ; this year 35 did so. The new churches organized during the year numbered 82, raising the total to 987. There are in the Western Bap tist Convention (west ef the Blue Ridge) 258 churches: in the Wac camaw Association 13, and of colored Baptists, 979. So the grand total of missionary Baptist churches in North Carolina is 2,237. "This convention has 96,670 mem bers ; the Western, 20,450 ; the Wac camaw (in North Carolina), 1,079; the colored Baptists . 113,020, . making a grand total of 231,222 missionary Baptists in the State. Besides these, there are 9,750 anti-missionary Bap tists, 10,090 Disciples and 6,516 Free Will Baptists." - The Baptists of North Carolina are engaged in a good cause and their vigorous and salutary efforts are being rewarded with many deserved bless ings. ' The Anti-Civil Service people score a triumph in the reinstatement of Dsstrict Attorney Benton, whose commission was withdrawn on ac count of Ms having a little too much to do with the recent election. The President wisely reconsidered his act ion when the force of old Senator Vest was brought to bear upon him. DEATH OV PEESDENT AllTHUB. Although it had been generally known for months that ex-President Arthur was in failing health, and there was but little expectation that he would ever again enjoy health and strength, yet the suddenness of his de cease gives" a shock of sorrow and re gret to the whole country. . He died at his residence in New York City on tht . 18th from a stroke of apoplexy ; he had been ' suffering for some time with a complication of diseases. He was the twenty -first President of the United States. He was born in Ver mont Oct. 5th, 1830, and was 56 years, one month and thirteen days old. His father was Rev. William Arthur, a Baptist, and a native of Ireland. . The funeral took place last Monday with appropriate ceremonies, the re mains being buried in Albany. Pres ident Cleveland and a portion of his Cabinet with a delegation from the Senate and House of Representatives attended his funeral. The White House and all the department build ings in Washington were draped in mourning. President Arthur was undoubted ly a remarkable man, and few men in political history have been placed in so responsible and embarrassing a sit uation as that which he occupied upon the death of Garfield. His con servative views, his great knowledge of men, his rare political segacity, his firm but fair and impartial character istics, and his gentle and popular manners, enabled him to grasp the reins of government and take control of public affairs at one of the most critical periods in the Nation's history. During his occupancy of the Presi dential office, Mr. Arthur won the respect and confidence of the people. He bore himself with dignity in his official relatious, and his private life was marked by a refinement and charm of manner that graced the White House. His name will be remembered by the American people long, long after that of the Fraud Hayes will have sunk into an obscurity, so deep that not even the future historian will feel justified in resurecting it. The Richmond and Danville Rail road Co. has experienced quite a change in its management. The Logan interest has gained control of the West Point Terminal and has also secured a majority of the stock in the R.& D. It required a five million dollars. to effect the trade. The Richmond Dis patch says it is understood that Col. Buford will be given a responsible po sition, and that Mr.Sulley will be elec ted president of the Termini Company, and probably of the consolidated com panies. The combined trackage of these two roads is about 2,800 miles, and if these gentlemen carry out their plans as announced by them they will start an era in railroading in the South in the way of a complete trunk line that will push on into new fields and prove a powerful competitor to other proposed lines. Durham has indeed sustained a se rious 'loss in the recent fire that de stroyed so large an amount of valua ble i property. Sympathy aud con dolence goes out from every North Carolina heart, to the plucky town, which has always risen proudly and tri umphantly, from the ashes of its former conflagrations. It is an ill wind that blows nobody any good, and Durham will more than likely profit by her big fire. Her business men and man ufacturers will now bestir themselves io set on foot a system of water works, by the early establishment of which the recent calamity might have been averted. It is given out by persons who claim to know whereof they speak that a strong effort will be made by labor men to secure an extra session of the Fiftieth Congress immediately after the expiration of this Congress in March 4, next to consider questions affecting labor. It is understood that petitions are being circulated among the laboring men of the coun try, calling upon the President tor an extra session and that the labor advocates in Congress will champion it. The extra session, it is proposed shall be devoted to labor questions exclusively. Brother Mooring of the Mocks vile Times is making some commen dable efforts in behalf of the new rail road project which if accomplished will do Davie county unceasing good. His last issue of the -Times contained some pretty sensible and vigorous ad vice to the people to vote for the sub scription of 100,000 to the South Atlantic and North Atlantic Railroad. The Sentinel can hardly doubt for a moment that with such a proposition before them the good people of Davie will refuse to accept it. " ; . President Cleveland ; for the second time vents his opinion of the American press. The poor newspa per men all feel mighty bad over it, of .course, but it does not require the wisdom of a Dana or a Pulitzer to to detect that Grover iu his young married life is growing somewhat pe tulant. The sad fate of Kiefer, the Ohio Congressmen, ought to serve as a terrible warning to the President. The buzz saw is not to be monkeyed with any less than a live newspaper man. It is said that the Civil Service Commissioners propose to adopt a plan for popularizing the system at points where little or nothing is known of its practical workings. The plan is to hold four examinations an nually in interior cities and towns in the various States, so that the people in the rural districts may 'have the same advantage in competitive ex aminations as the inhabitants of lar ger cities. In the Baptist Convention, recently assembled at Baltimore, a delegate re ferred to the labor question and his remarks were very pointed. This leads the Atlanta Journal to observe "that this question will get into every body legislative, political, theologi cal, literary and social until we, as Americans, addressing ourselves to it earnestly, enter upon its solution su becomes patriots, citizens and Chris tians." The Monroe Express in reviewing the fitness of a number of gentlemen for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination in 1888, says the following about our present popular Lieutenant Governor : We hear also the name of Maj. C. M. Sted man mentioned in this connection. He is so well knawn by reason of the general canvass of his merits two years ago, when he appeared before the people of the State as the Democratic candidate for Lieutenant Governor, we need not speak of his knightly qualities. The democracy of the State would gladly follow him to victory aud the sixth district especially would honor him with a tremendous vote. LADIES BEAD THIS. To the first lady sending us one dol lar and fifty cents for a y ear's sub scription to The Sentinel during the next week, we will send the House keeper one year. The Housekeeper, the price of which is one dollar per year, is one of the best household pa pers published. SENTINEL CLUB RATES. In clubs of 5 subscribers, $1.40 each.

Another lottery wave passed over New Or leans, last Tuesday and in its caurse struck Mr. Adolph L. Beltran, son of our well-known fel low citizen, R. Beltran, Esq., commission mer chant on Decatur street. The blow was a severe one aud it struck Apolph so unexpectedly that he has not entire ly recovered his senses, though in possession of more cents than he ever had in his check-ered career. On Wednesday, with a dollarous expression in his eye, he visited the office of the Louisiana State Lottery Company and inquired for the root doctor." This singular inquiry excited the curiosity of the office and he was invited to a seat in the left-hand ward. His pulse being felt, an extraordinary con traction of the muscles was discerned. On re ducing the same, a lottery ticket was revealed bearing the number 94,552. A quick diagno sis of his case was made. The lottery wave had given him, in the drawing on Nov, i), lor a one dollar investment, the sum of fifteen thousand dollars. The "root of all evil," in the form ot very hard cash was at once administered and Mr. Beltran's singular inquiry was explained. Iu a pleasant chat with tho writer, the for tuaate holder (who i3 apparently 21 years of age) stated that he is a native ot jxew Orleans, and is now working in the labratory of the Planters' Sugar Refinery, learning the business under Mr. John Reynolds and that the sudden accumulation of wealth will in no way affect his resolution to master his adopted profession.
