WINSTON-SALEM SHAKEN SUCH A RELIGIOUS AWAKENING NEVER SEEN HERE. Evargelist Fife's Srcond Sermon to Malrs ISO ot Th m Make a Pro fession A Touching Scene "i rt-pare to Meet Thy God " From Dai y Senlmel, Nov. 13. Winston-Salem have never experi enced sucb a religious awakening before. The people are discussing little else. God's love and power appears to be hovering over .the Twin-City and those who neglect salvation during the present revival services can blame no one but themselves. ' No less than 120 men and boys came out on the Lord's side at the meeting for males, at Centenary church, last night. The scene was indeed an im pressive one sufficient, it would seem, to melt the heart of the hardest sinner. Evangelist Fife preached with great power and earnestness and he relied upon the goodness of the Holy Spirit for effective work. The main body or the church, in cluding galleries, was packed with old, middle-aged and young men. After the song service, Mr. Fire read a petition from a mother asking for prayers for her wayward boy. The Evangelist then asked the Chris tians who had friends they desired to see saved to say so and call names if they desired to do so More than one hundred names were called. One re quest was made for every Confederate soldier in the bouse. This was followed by silent prayers, by Christians, for their friends. Some 300 unconverted also bowed their beads, thereby making requests for prayer. In opening his discourse, Mr. itife said he hoped he realized the great responsibility that rested upon him, n preaching to 1,500 men; said it was l fearful thing to think about; be ieved he was going to preach some body's funeral tonignt. He asked all to pay strict attention as he desired to make a plain, simple Bible talk from the Word of Uod and not W. Fife. Wanted to speak on the plan of salvation. He luoted Amos iv:12 'Prepare to meet thy God." He gave and answered three questions, as fol lows: First Why should I prepare to meet God? Second How should I prepare to I prepare to meet God ? Third When should meet God ? In answer to the first question, be said that because it is God we have to meet; It is not the President of the United States. If It was wired here that the President was coming to Winston arrangements would be made for a great ovatiou. Tobacco breaks would be laid aside. But it is one who is greater than the President that commands you to make prepara tion, and he's coming here. I repeat what I said a few nights ago that the greatest Bible men of today are momentarily looking for Christ not udgment day but expecting Him to come and take nis people out cf this old world to the home prepared for them. He quoted Psalms 9:17 "The wick ed shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God." Also Ezekiel 18:4 "The soul that sinneth it shall die." Why should you prepare ? Answer ed in Rev. 21:8 I care not what you believe, God's word says it. Mr. Jure gave other quotations from Rev. 20:14, 15: Rev. 14:9, 10. 11; Jude. 7; Ezekiel 33:12. You may ask. "How can I make this preparation ?" You must forsake sin. Isaiah 55:7. Forsake bad thoughts. We may not be able to keep them from coming into our minds, but we must not harbor them let them go out. He quoted Jeremiah 29:13 and said: We must forgive our enemies or go to hell; you can't be saved with malice in your heart. Man, if you will not forgive. God will not forgive you. as told in St. Mark 11:25. He also quot ed 2d Cor. 12:9. We have got to make restitution for sin as far as possible. If you have another man's money you have got to pay him; if you have failed in business you cannot bide behind your wile's name. The religion or the Lord Jesus Christ makes you honest. The Evangelist told of a number of men who. after being converted, went to paying their honest debts. In continuing bis discourse. - he quoted from tbe Word of God as fol lows: Acts io:3l, 10:43, 13:39; lsalah 42:25, 53:5, 6; Matthew 10:32; Isaiah 55:6; Rev. 3:20; Jeremiah 24:15; Heb. 3:15; Proverbs 9:1. He appealed to his hearers to give their hearts to God, saying that they had often been approved of sin but that they hardened their necks. Said he bad felt it all day he would preach the funerals of some men; that if they were not saved at that service they would never be saved. Said there were some men in tbe house who were rich in worldly goods, but they were robbing God. In concluding his ap peal to men he quoted 2d Cor. 6:2; Prov. 27:1. Dr. Browne sang "Are you ready for the Judgement Day ?" after which Mr. Fife stated that he would give those who were willing to forsake sin and come out on the Lord's side five minutes to consider the matter and act for themselves. ' More than one hundred went forward, gave the Evangelist their hands and received helpful tracts to read. A Colored Man's Views. After Rev. Mr. Price had preached his last sermon to the colored people, a few nights ago, he announced that any member of the congregation that desired to testify for tbe Lord could do so. Several made short talks, the most pertinent one of which, perhaps, was by a colored brother who remark ed that he had heard some people say that Sam Jones was the greatest man that had ever visited Winston; others said Mr. Fife was, while others thought Mr. Price was the greatest. The brother said he would tell how it was: "Mr. Jones come here and did de washing; Mr. Fife and Mr. Price are here now doing de Ironing." BacklM'sArnlca Salva.

One Hundred and Tbirtj Requests for Prayer Tbe Varions Excuses Men Make for Not Being Christions. Another Service for Males. From Daily Eentinel, Nov 14. Last nigbt was tbe third meeting for men only, at Centenary church, the congregation surpassing in numbers, if possible, any previous meeting. Mr. Fife told the ushers not to try to seat a Christian man. "Let 'em stand, but if you find a sinner out there, bring him to the front if you have to collar him." The choir was put on the -platform, behind the speaker, in order to make room in front for sinners who were standing in the rear of the church. Mr. Fife said he wanted to put two thousand men in a church made for fifteen hundred, and he came near do ing it. During a season of silent prayer Dr. Browne sang that beautiful and touching solo, "Ob, Lord, send the power just now." The Evangelist selected as his sub ject: The various excuses men make for not being Christians. Luke 14:17, 18: And they all with one consent be gan to make excuse. If I had time, I would show you that there was going to be a marriage and that God had sent you an invita tion. You might not say I have bought land, or oxen, or I have mar ried a wife, but I am going to give you some excuses heard right here in Winston. 1 I am doc such a great sinner. Have you kept the whole law ? Jas. 2:10; 1st John 1:10. You may not be a great sinner, but unless you ac cept the marriage invitation you must die and go to bell. 2. I am too busy to attend to this matter. Your husiness will sink you in hell yet, mark what I tell you. Mark 8:36. 37; Mat. 6:19-21; Isaiah 55:6. I read once of a man who went to Cali fornia and amassed a fortune, put it all into gold, put the gold in a belt, and buckled the belt around himself. He got on a ship and fell overboard. His friends called to him to keep up a few minutes and they would save him, but he was carried down by the weight of the gold, rather than take off the belt and save himself. There are more men in this town go ing to hell for a few paltry dollars than any other town I know of in North Carolina. 3. There are too many hypocrites in the church. There will be hypocrites as long as there is a church. How would you like to go before your God with the excuse that you didn't accept the in vitation to the marriage feast be cause there were hypocrites in the church ? I had rather live a few years with hypocrites in the church than to die and go to hell and live with them for ever. 4. I am so old that I'm afraid God won't accept me. Christ says whosoever will may come. John 3:6. Thank God, old and young alike are included in the invi tation. 5. I don't feel enough, and therefore do not accept. There is not a passage in the Bible that mentions feeling. The word faith occurs 560 times and in John's Gospel believe is found 100 times. Does the feeling save, ordoes Christ save ? 2d Cor. 5:6; Isaiah 43:35; Rom. 4:5, 5:1; Titus 3:5; Isaiah 45:42. By faith you must apply the blood to your heart before you can feel it. 6. I am afraid I can't bold out. Thank God you can't hold out by yourself. My hold on God may slip, but His hold on me can never fail. Isaiah 41:10-13. God can keep Chris tians from stumbling. 1st Cor. 10 13; Phil. 1:6; 1st Cor. 12:9; 2d Timothy 1:12. 7. I am such a great sinner I am afraid there is no salvation for me. Would to God that we could find one hundred men in this church who realize that they are great sinners. Then I could point you to a great Sa vior. Heb. 7:25; Isaiah 1:18; 1st Peter 2:14; Luke 19:10. You may say I am a drunkard. Blessed be God He can snap the fet ters that bind you. Tbe blood of Jesus Christ can save you when Keely can't. The last excuse I will touch on to night is this: I will not accept Christ tonight. Tonight is the only time you have. .Now is the Lord's time. You know nothing of tomorrow. Prov. 21:1; Jas. 4:14. Will you accept the invitation to attend the marriage feast tonight? Mr. Fife was laboring under a se vere throat trouble,, but his earnest ness never wanes. When tbe call was made for those to come forward who would accept the Lord, eighty men responded and said by their action that they wanted to be saved. One hundred and thirty requests for prayer were made. Mr. Fife said he was all broken down, physically, but be did not feel like he could close the meetings while tbe interest kept, up as it is now. When the question was asked whether or not another meeting for men should be held tonight, tbe vast concourse of at least 2.000 men voted almost as a unit for another men's meeting, and Mr. Fife said, "We'll have it." It was indeed a glorious sight to see old gray-haired men, together with boys and young men, coolly and delib erately walk forward and promise to live for God and the right. .The Way It Goes. From the Charlotte News. In one of our State courts a few days ago two women were sent bo the penitentiary for terms of six and twelve months for stealing 10 cents worth of bacon. Commenting upon this sentence the Salisbury World says: - "There ia something radically wrong in the form of justice that gives a notorious criminal two or three years ana a woman impelled by hun ger to steal, twelve months in the State prison.- The crimes It is true, are toe same, uotn have broken tbe law and merit punishment. But there should be some other disposition conforming more nearly to tbe laws of equity when the motives of the crimi nal are taken into consideration." THE REVIVAL SERVICES. ABOUT SEVEN IY-F1 VE PROFES SIONS THURSDAY NIGHT. "Bat Seek Ye First tbe Kingdom of God and His Righteousness and All These Things Shall be Ad ded Unto Yon," His Subject. From Daily Sentinel. Nov. 15. The great religious wave which has been hovering over Winston -Salem for several weeks, appears to be deepen ing and widening as tbe days go by. Yesterday afternoon a company or Christian workers visited the bar rooms and offered earnest prayers in behalf of tbe keepers. Last night Evangelist Fife conduct ed his fourth service for males. As usual, Centenary church was packed and many were turned away for lack of room. During the song service prayers were offered by Rev. Dr. II. A Brown, Rev. Robert E. Caldwell and Bishop Itondthaler. Mr Fife asked the Christians in the galleries to single out sinners in the audience and pray that they might be saved. Me said be round it easier to reach a man out of tbe church better than one in the church, not a Chris tian. Before the voluntary prayers were offered, a large number of men knelt, thereby signifying that they desired to be remembered in the supplications offered. Mr. Fife stated that some of the slips dropped in tbe hat, to help de fray expenses, remained uopaid. "It is a mighty mean man that will do that, and be is not worthy the name of man," said the Evangelist. "If I can get bold of the list I will read out these names on Sunday morning. I will do that if it is the last thing I do." Mr. Fife read a lesson from Matthew 6:19-34. He said there were some peo ple in these towns who were trying to hold God with one hand and mammon with the other. Gods word says take no thought for tomorrow. Still men here are giving God the lie. They have got to look after interests banking, tobacco, law, mercantile business, etc. The Scripture is di rected to Christians. All you can get in this life is a living you can take nothing away. In 21 Timothy you will find where men laid up money. There are men in Winston selling their souls for pauper dollars. The Evangelist preached from this text: "But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things Phall be added unto you" Matthew 6:33. He said Christians should strive daily to serve God. We all came into this world with nothiug and will go away the same way. We find no where in the Bible to horde up money. We should day by day seek God. But you find men in this town who have'nt got time. He told of his visit to one of the warehouses and said he saw men gathered around the auctioneer. He spotted a number of them. There's a man out of Christ and there's another. There were some Christians there mixed up with the sinners all seeking to make a few pauper dollars and putting off the most important duty seeking God and his righteousness. The Holy Spirit is operating upen men, old people tell me, as never be fore in Winston-Salem. Mr. Fife plead earnestly with those out of Christ to give their hearts to God. He said there were men in Winston Salem who would never see another Christmas; that every town he visit ed some one died, warning the people. He quoted Hebrews 2:3, and said the Spirit of God warns you of danger. But you say down with the Spirit and continue dancing, gambling, ly ing, etc. When you drive the Spirit away you area damned man. Some men expect to be saved on their death-bed. I don't believe in it. Seen too many who promised God to serve Him and when they get well they are meaner than ever before. May you run up the white flag, put your eyes on God and be saved. The Evangelist's closing appeal was full of earnestness. Tbe discourse was followed by a most fervent prayer by Rev. S. B. Turrentlne. . It was after 11 o'clock when the last service closed. Some of the attend ants say Jas t night's meeting was the best one yet held. About 75 old, middle aged and. young men made a profession. THIS MORNING'S SERVICE. Interest in the protracted service continues to deepen and widen. An other tremendous congregation at tended this morning's meeting at Centenary church. Evangelist Fife's subject was "Be," tending to shoeing mainly wbat a Christian should be. This is said to have been the sweetest service of tbe entire series. There were fifteen professions this morning. A PRAISE SERVICE. More Than 200 People Testified St vera 1 Shouted. Evangelist Fife conducted a praise service at Centenary church Thursday morning. He said the first two things to do was to praise Go 3 for what He has already done and then ask nim for still greater things. After read ing tbe 107th Psalm he said how often we hear prayers without one wordT of praise In them. If we haven't got something to thank God for this morning I don't think we will ever have. Said be praised God for His word in using it in breaking the hearts of men in this place. Thanked God that more personal work is being done now in this community than ever before. - The meeting was thrown open for others to praise God for what He had done for them. Morethan 200 persons testified, giving praise for blessings received. After this the congrega tion Bang "Old Time Religion," when several Christians gave vent to their feelings by shouting the praises of God. . Two Rainbows. Rainbows in November are an un usual sight in this part of the country. Two very, bright ones were seen Tues day afternoon, between the hours of 4 and 5 o'clock, in the Northeast, and they attracted a good deal of atten tion in Durham, says tbe San. Tbe superstitious can now get to work and tell us what sign it foretells. There is something attached to such sights, "Bun no risk! Be sure of your .remedy and rose Ajer s earsaparuia omy. TAX On music dealers. DRIVING BUSINESS MEN OUT OF THE STATE. Sncb Laws Are In Favor of Monopolies A Few Wealthy Manufacture! s Will Control the Business in tbe State of North Carolina. Several days ago The Sentinel told why Mr. Addison, manager of tbe Standard Music Company, had to leave Winston and North Carolina and go to Virginia. The Newbern Journal tells of a similar case. It says: The burdensome State license tax of $250 per annum imposed by the last Legislature upon music dealers has caused Ames & Burke, who had a branch house In this place, to close it. The local manager will, however, con tinue to represent the company here as agent, soliciting and taking orders that can be done without paying the heavy license, but the house itself is a thing of tbe past. Thoughtful people cannot help de precating laws which drive good legit mate and beneficial enterprises out of a town and out of the State. The house which Messrs. Ames & Burke bad established here was a credit to both themselves and the city. They had a splendid array of instruments in large variety and it bid fair to be firmly established as a prosperous and a growing business. Such laws as caused the breaking up of this business is work in favor of monopolies. A few wealthy manu facturers or dealers will pay the tax and almost ontrol the business of the State. This largely cuts tf competi tion, and has a tendency to encourage "combines" and unduly high prices on the part of those who stand the tax, but of course with the expectation of making it up out of their customers A similar tax has been in force for years against the sewing machine companies, and of course tbe result is, so ait; companies do not operate in the State that otherwise would, and we doubt not that thousands of dollars more are paid annually in the State for sewing machines than would be done if that opportunity for competi tion was greater. A BIG liAW SUIT. Meters. Fries Will Seek ro Set Abide Assignment of Wallace Bros. Statesville Landmark, 11th A big suit and one that will be hot ly contested and will attract much attention was filed in Iredell Superior Court yesterday. It is that of F. & H. Fries, of Salem, vs. Wallace Bros , B. F. Long, assignee, and th'e Wallace Bros'. Company. The Messrs. Fries, who are creditors of the late firm of Wallace Bros , will seek to set aside the assignment on the ground of fraud, allegiug that the firm failed to make a clean surrender of its proper ty, and charging that assets were hypothecated with friends in the North. The plaintiff's attorneys are Messrs. R. B. McLaughlin, and Watson & Buxton, of Winston. Dr. J. Lowen 8tein, also a creditor of the Wallaces, will join with the Messrs. Fries in this action. His attorneys are Messrs. McLaughlin and L. C. Caldwell, and Judge Montgomery, of Concord. s. An Elopement Sure Enough. The marriage at Mt. Olive church, in Stokes county, the 3rd inst., by Rev. C. C. Haymore, of Mr. Lackey, Stewart, Va., and Miss Anderson, of lloaooke, Va , was a more romantic affair than reported last week. Mr. Lackey stole the young lady from the second story of her father's residence, on the banks of the Roanoke, on Thursday night, and fearing intercep tion by telegraph if he travelled by rail, accompanied by some friends, came through the country to Dan bury, reaching there -Saturday after noon. Here their troubles were not ended, for the Register of Deeds was at Mount Olive attending the meet ing. Resting Saturday night they re pairel to the church Sunday morning, but did not reach there until after tbe service bad begun. After the ser mon, tbe Register having been found and license procured, thy stood up before tbe minister, in the presence of tbe large congregation, and were made one. Tbe Mt. Airy News learns that the bride is a beautiful and in telligent woman. It is to be hoped that she has secured as a partner through life a man who will appre ciate her constancy and devotion at its true worth. Reward Offered for Cain. Governor Carr has offered a reward of $100 for the capture of M. C. Cain, who on the seventh day of last August murdered his brother, W. F. Cain, near Advance, Davie county. The name would seem to indicate that tbe slayerwas one of the descendants of tbe Biblical fratricide. Had the slain brother been named Abel, for once might history have repeated itself. Some tbink Cain is very likely In hidiDg, waiting to surrender himself at tbe proper time to his mend and use the hundred so kindly given by the State to wrest bis release from the stern old common-wealth. Dan Tl lie Tobacco Firm Assigns. C. A. Raine & Co., tobacco manu facturers .of Danville, assigned Nov. 14th to E. B. Withers, trustee, covet ing their factory, stock and fixtures, books, accounts, etc., to secure creai tors. This was followed by other deeds from C. A. Raine and wire and Geo, N. Wilson, members of the firm, con veying real estate to secure creditors of the concern. Tbe names of the creditors are not given, nor is the amount of assets or liabilities. It is understood, however, that the liabili ties are between $60,uou and 87o,ooo, and the assets somewhere gnear tbe same. Does "R. J. R." Want Patchen? Since Joe Patch en -placed his valuable hoofs on North Carolina soil, covetous eves have turned towards the nacinir "phenom." Brook Rock stated that Mr. L. Banks Holt was negotiating for Patchen and would in all proba bility secure him. It was stated yes terday, says the Raleigh-Press Visi tor, that Mr. Reynolds, the big tobacco manufacturer, had offered $17,500 for the animal, but that the proffer was refused. It was also stated that $20, 000 was the price set for the horse by tbe owners. It will be rememoed that a reported offer of $20,000 for Gentry was refused. - THE FIRST MARRIAGE CELEBRATED IN THE LUTHERAN CHURCH, ON YEStERDAY. Miss Virginia Stafford and Mr. Nor man Hancock Were the Contract ing Parties I tresive Cere monyGoing to Atlanta. The first marriage in the Lutheran church was celebrated a Tew minutes after 5 o'clock Thursday afternoon, Nov. 14. The contracting parties were Miss Virginia Alma Stafford, of this city, and Mr. Norman Franklin Hancock, of Muskogee, Indian Territory. The Lutheran cermony was impres sively performed by the pastor, Rev. W. A. Lutz. Thecburrh was filled with friends of tbe bride and groom, and a beauti ful, simple wedding it wa. Lovely floral decorations covered the pulpit altar. The wedding march was played by Mr. James Shepperd. The ushers were Messrs. Rawiey Galloway and M. W. NorfiVet. Just heft re the bridal couple entered they marched up the left aisle, while Misses Mamie and Lula Stafford, sis ters, pi oe d.'d up the right aisle. Upon reacuiiig the altar Miss Mamin crossed over to the left aisle, while Mr. Nor fleet proeeded to the right. The bridal couple marched up the left aisle to the altar, where the fili ating minister pronounced them hus band and wife "in the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Ghost." The bride was becomiogly attired in a traveling dress. She is known by a large circle or friends in Winston Salem, and is loved by them all.
