The carriages vre then ta ken and the membersof the party, after being driven through thc piiucipal streets, were escorted to the lair grounds, where the President was in troduced and welcomed to the city in a few eloquent remarks by Gos Seay. In reply to the Governor's address the President spoke as follows : - "I am very glud to be aide, at the conclusion of a more delightful, and I hope, improving series of visits through the country, to see a little of the fiiate of Alabama and its people and its capitol. I believe that no Southern State has within itself more elements of independent growth and development than Alabama. There i3 hardly a food product which is not raised in its agricultural limits. It has within its borders abundant forests of useful and valuable timber waiting for its utilization to the needs of man, while its mineral resources, marvelous and inexhaustible, give assurance of wealth and commercial greatness. In the means of transportation your State is hardly less favored. About two thirds of your counties are bounded or intersected by rivers navigable or easily made so. Your railroad facili ties, already great, are constantly in creasing, and your outlet to the ocean is found in the largest and finest bay on the Gulf of Mexico. A State thus favored by nature, and so profoundly blessed by the gifts of providence, cannot but occupy a commanding po sition in the union of states which con stitutes a great nation, nor can any have a greater stake in the welfare and progress of the entire country or in the harmonious and friendly "feel ing upon which these depend. As you gather your agriculture and as you increase their volume and variety you are not only enriching yourselves -and your State, but are adding luster to our national glory. Your iroa ore is taken frora the same field as the material necessary to its manufacture and sjpplies a powerful element of national cohesion and in its manufact ure you are preparing the strongest bonds of national unity. ISvery ton of iron you are enabled to furnish a Northern State goes far towards de stroying sectional feelings. Your fel low countrymen appreciate the value of intimaie and profitable business re lations with you 'and there need be no fear that they will permit them to be destroyed or endangered by designing demagognes. The wickedness of those partisans who seek to aid their ambi tious eeheme3 by engendering hate among a generous people is fast meet ing exposure and yet there is and should be an insistance upon a strict adherence to the settlement which has been made of disputed questions upon the acceptance of such settlement. Against this, I believe no business consideration should prevail and I firmly beifeve .that there ia American fairness enough abroad iu the land to insure a proper and substantial recog nition of the good faith which you have exhibited. We know that you still have problems to solve involving consideration concerning you alone, i; The I'resiaent In North Carolina. As!!KVii.i.i:, Oct. 21. This morn ing's run of the President's special train, between snn riso and latv; break fast, took in the ascent of the great smoky spur of the Alleghanie's, the line being for fifty miles or more be side the French Broad river. Not all the tourists were up, and those who were not misted a panorama, whose varied charms are no where surpassed. At Hot Springs, Senators Hansom and Vance, and Congress man Henderson boarded the train and accompanied the President to Ashevilie. xVbout eight o'clock the watches of thc party, which were set back three weeks ago at Pittsburg, were advanced from Central to Eas tern -.1100. Moriiaxtox, Oct. 21. During the tkscent of the mountain along the bank of Mill creek, the headwater of the Catawba, the entire party, includ ing the wife and daughter of' Senator Kansom, who came on at Ashevilie, a-s-jn; hied in the observatory. The President and Mrs. Cleveland stand-' ing tv.ost of the way on the platform. Maj jr McBee, railroad superintend ent, called attention to the points of interest, a dozen of which were in s'ght at ane time. The remarks of the least poetic of the tourists were broken and ejaculatory, while the ar tist became almost incoherent and wanted to get off. Ot. Fort, Oct. 21. The stop at Ashevilie, was scheduled for only fifteen minutes, but it lasted an hour. The municipal authorities and a host of citizens welcomed the President at the station, and escorted him and his companions to carriages and took them through the town. The way for ha'f a mile was up a steep hill, and it struck the guests as an oddity that their conductors, in calling attention to the natural beauty of the situation, should refer to the locality as a valley. Therefore North Carolina was better understood when the summit was reached, from which, -on all sides, could be seen from ten to fifty miles distant to the f ops of the Blue Ridge, LaLsm range, Smoking mountain and Biaek mountain, hemming in the fer tile region whose knolls of 500 to 800 feet were, dwarfed to pigmies in com parison. The party's most active es cort was a score of ladies and gentle men civ horseback, who led the way up and down the steep mountain roads in a gallop. The feature of the reception was the line formed by a thousand mounted mountaineers and country people, clad in their everyday habits, but with bridles bedecked with little flags and their equipage with evergreens. From Ashevilie eastward the railway kept close company with the Swanuaaoa. The mountain scen ery was no less grand than that of the morning. A few minutes after noon the train shot through a tunnel under the uppermost crest of the Alleghanies and began its descent of the Atlantic slope. The Presidential special train passed here at 11 o'clock without stoppage. THE NEW THEOLOGY. MARTIN LUTHEKGOKsTO WOUS1S IX THE NIXKrEKNTH CBSTUBY.

Special Correspondence of The Sentinel. New Ha vex. Conn.. October 22. Yale is a centre of mental activity for this country. It draws the best things in the land. Sir Henry Drum mond, author of "Natural Law in Spiritual World," is now visiting the United States and has given a week to Yale. He made several addresses and was given a "University reception" by President Dwight. Mr. Drummonti's book ha3 been popular in North Caro lina. The man would be more popu lar. In appearance he is un-Ameri can and is what I conceive to be gen uinely scotch. lie is a pleasant speaker very clear and sincere. He has a bright eye and a ierky move ment ol body. He seems full of "com mon sense." Dr. Joseph Parker, of London, spoke in the city a few nights since. tlis subject was Henry Ward Becch- er. 1 ao not know that JNorth Caro lina people are so much interested in him. Dr. Parker has recently come into general interest here as the possi ble successor of Mr. Beecher. A second delightful feature of Yale is its spirit. It has great faith ia Truth. It believes Truth to be a liv ing growing, thing. Truth h divine and so independent. This faidi makes very great charity and liberality. I have been impressed with this fact in the past weeks. Everybody well-niirh has been interested in the "Andover A nm SOUTHKRN KXPOSiriOX. I-et ITs Have an. Exhibit From all the South Atlantic States. Ia his speech at Atlanta on Tups. day, President Cleveland with much force upon the great ad- vanrages resulting trora the exposition of the material resources of a conntry. Atlanta s growth and the. rirp!rr- 3t of the natural wesdth ot Georo-ia ment and the Piedmont country may be largely traced to the Cotton Expos' tion which was held in Atlanta in 1881. That great fair was the table of contents of a new book of revela tions that opened the eyes of the com mercial world. There began the march of material progress which has attracted to the reiuvenated South millions of idle Northern capital and thousands of active and enternrisin- settlers from all parts of this busy and practical world. As President Cleveland well said. it is not the fertility of the soil that promotes the developernent of a State. but rather is it the enterprise of those who by the organization of industrial expositions prove what are the oppor tunities for the investment of capital and the employment of brains. At lanta is a standing monument to the utility of such expositions. What has been so happily accomplished there may likewise be accomplished else-, where in the South. So far, only the underbush has been cleared awav. The resources of the South have bare ly been touched. The expositions at Atlanta, Raleigh, New Orleans, and other cities have iu the main covered only certain lines and districts. There are wider reaches to be attained and till greater fairs to be held. Taking- the cue from President movement." Many people have o-rown 1 lcve,an wny should there not be a angry. Some have been alarmed. 1 h , .,, U!,Ll'ai C-M"'"' m Ihey have felt here that Christianity would live whatever issue this move meet might have. Truth is not de pendent upon the speculations of An dover or the dogmatism of the "Pru dential Committee" of the American Board. So Yale has been compara tively cool and comfortable while many of the neighbors have been boiling. Undoubtedly last week was a srreat time in New .England. The "Ando ver controversy lias grown into such general concern that a few words upon it will not be out of place. Your read ers know already the result of the meeting at Springfield. What wa3 the ceal question ? The American Board is the agent of the Congregational churches of the whole country. The churches ?end out their missionaries and pay them through this Board. This isoard is a close corporation of about three hundred member. with power to perpetuate itself. There being no central power or authority in Congre gationalism some such agent is neces sary to successful missionary effort of the local churches. Each church is independent in Congregationalism. Orthodoxy is determined by Councils of churches convened for definite pur poses. It has come to pass that many preachers subscribe to the speculative theory, "future probation" so-called. Then preachers are generally settled over churches. These churches con tribute largely to the funds disbursed by the American Board. In this State of things a young man applies to the Board to be sent as a missionary. The Board learns that this young man is inclined to the tenet of "future proba tion" and on this ground declines to send him. Those in sympathy with this speculation insist that the young man be sent. The board refuses. (I should have explained that the Board acts through a committee termed thc "Prudential Committee.") This stand of the committee elevates it at once to being a test of orthodoxy. It stands thus above the churches and applies a standard different from that of many of the churches. The opponents of the Board claim that this is utterly un congregational and violate the fundamental principle of Congrega tional polity. Such was the real issue at Springfield. The conservative ele ment in the churches supported the action of the Prudential Committee and thus showed a lack.' of faith in Congregational polity. As I have said, the contest was in many respects a noted one. The great lights of the church were there. The eyes of a large part of the world look ed in upon them. It was the old fight upon somewhat new gromid. Luther at Worms once more. How long be fore men shall get permission to think? When will the day come when Truth will be no longer decided by thc army of swords or hands? "Since they would not follow us, we forbade them, Lord." H. H. W. "GUVp, Huck!" We prefer to have hayseed in our hair than mugwump principles on our nature. We prefer to be a horny-banded son of toil than a hypocrite, a gusher, a civil service reformer, n Mugwump or a Republican.

New Railway Construction. One of the questions now exciting much interest is whether the amount of capital absorbed in new railway construction during 188G, and actu ally and prospectively during 1887, is sufficient to oause a serious financial convulsion. A variety of opinions are expressed. The leading facts ap pear to be that last year there were additions of about 9,000 miles to the pre-existing roads, that this amount will probably be slightly exceeded during the present year, and that the furore for speedy additional construc tion has been somewhat suddenly and effectually checked by the increased difficulty of negotiating loans or sell ing bonds. The fact that such a check has been applied will probably do more than anything else to prevent extensions on a soale that might haver given cause for serious alarm. In the natural course of events of this coun try, a genuine need for the construc tion of about 5,000 or G,000 miles of new line per annum is developed, and some extra activity was justifiable during 1886 and 1887, 011 account ot the comparatively small additions to mileage during 1S83 and1884, which aggregated 7,433 miles. It is to be expected that some of the new mileagft will not be remunerative for a consid erable period, but much of it was slightly, if at all, in advance of real requirements. Wild speculations in town lots and western farnt3 will be more likely to cause serious financial stringency than new railway construc tion if the checks already applied to excessively rapid development conti nue to prove offective. The economic conditions prevailing here justify and require much larger average annual addition to mileage than are demand ed by the conditions prevailing iu any other country. Hail way World.

THE PUBLICS OPINION. EniTOUIAL KI'ClllXCS FROM EV ERYWHERE. A Miscellaneous Mixture of Points, Personal, Political, Social, and In dustrial That the Papers are Talking About. If Judge Bond be sustained, then it were almost vain for the State to enact laws, for State government will have become a farce. Charleston and Courier, Dem. U. n. Judge Bond has shown him self a deep dyed radical partisan Judge on every possible occasion. Would that every such fellow were kicked out of the Judicial position. Wilson A dvance.

When God in His providence took from the South the sword of Lee, it left ti the bereaved section the pen of Davis. And yet there arc those who would deprive our lot cause of a re source like this unniin. ICu! that, in hands supremely greet, ihe pen is mightier than the sword. Columbia Register, Dem. It is believed that Jude Settle is laying his plans to be the Republican candidate for Governor. He has re cently been in conference with J lni Nichols and other Republican leaders'. If he is nominated he will have to learn over again the lesson which Vance taught him in 1S75 ' there's walking ahead of you, Tommie.' Ex. All questions, and all sides of all questions likely to be brought into the campaign, ought to be considered. No hurry should be allowed to smother or curtail discussions, No uproarious ress should be allowed to cut off speak ers whe discuss these live questions in the convention. It is more important to have correct principle.-; than to nom inate favorites. Let the platform be first agreed upon, then nominate men whose characters fully exemplify the platform. Durham Plant. We want to hear less of dead and impracticable issues, and more of those things which are real grievances. We want more of a live, aggressive and progressive policy, which will re lieve us of dead weight, and which will infuse into the whole of our in dustrial system, new life, new blood, new thought, new energy and new as piration. We need less of political ciap-trap and glory and more of sound statesmanship and dollars. The South works for political glory and our neighbor Yankee works for dollars, and there is where they have outstrip ped us. Progressive Farmer. Tha Louisburg Times speaks what many believe has sound truth in it, when it says : We honestly and stead fastly believe that there is a growing tendency throughout thc country to wards mixed schools. In Kansas the question is being discussed by the 1'cwspapers, and the Republican pa pers do not look upon it as so bad af ter all. How would such things work in Frankliu county and North Caro lina? Answer, white men. It will never work if the Democrats sta- iu power, but if the Republicans again get control good bye. KinMon Free, Press. It is certain that Governor Jarvis is not unmindful of the political fight that is to be waged at home next year and it may ba that his services and counsel may be desired at such a time. We are not of the opinion he desires to be the Democratic candidate for Governor. We have reason to be lieve he would not allow his name to go before the convention for the place. That he aspires for a seat iu the United States Senate there is hardly any room for doubt. Ransom will not be wanting in support for re election. It will be found that he is a hard man to beat. Jarvis is his rat formidable rival. Waddell and Scales are looking wistfully in that direction, also. The fight in the Democratic cau.us will be between these four gentlemen. Greenville Standard. The people "are ' surely very long suffering and it is strange that ihe two Pennsylvanian High Tariff advo cates the Protection paii that pull together so nicely Keliey and Ran dall, do not see it. It is known that most of the iron and steel made in this country are in Ohio and Pennsyl vania. In one year the people of the United States paid $109,000,000 for these two articles, thc nti sf, of which, as we said, is produced in the two States. The Government received in tax $27,000,000. The manufacturers got S3 a ton in the way of help or bounty.

A very remarkable piece of infor mation concerning the mining inter ests of North Carolina was gathered yesterday from the highest authority. In the past ninety days no less than 2,100,000 has been capitalized in three gold mines $1,000,000 in one, 700,000 in another, and $400,000 in a third. There is another very lare investment about to be made in this direction. The mining interests, both gold and i.on, are looking up. A blast was fired at the gold mine of the Ma rion Improvement Company, in Mc Dowell county, a few days ago, and ssven pounds of pure gold was the result. Mr. Thomas K. Bruncr, one of the best authorities in the State on these matters, gives this information. Charlotte Chronicle. A Lost Sumnivr, Wo pcnree could tell the hour sweet summer died, Nature told on her rosary of fiowcra, Pala lily, rose and iurpic pansies pied, And birds still sang as in spring's banishe.1 hours. But yet we know the soul of summer has lied ; That requiem winds in murmurs hoarse and rude Would chant above the grave of flowerets doad, And strew with leaves the haunted solitude. So from my heart in grief love vanished, , And hope still spread anew her phantom feast For the dear guest whom reason told was dead. And Life's lair temple lacked its white-robed - priest.
