THE PHILHARMONIC SCORES A GRAND SUCCESS. An Array of Distinguished Visiting and Local Musical Talent- Prof. Skilton' Meritorious Work The Programme Rendered. From Daily Sentine1, Dec. 5. The concert last evening, given in the Academy Chapel, by the Philhar monic Society, was a grand success, both as to merit and also financially. The character of the program was of such a nature as to call for a special notice on the part of The Sextineu In the first place the concert brought together an unusual amount of distinguished musical talent. There wa9 Dr. Griggs, of New York; Prof, and Miss Brock man, of Greens boro; Dr. Turner, of Statesville. These all came with chaste and classi cal selections for the program, and are always warmly welcomed by our people. Miss Emma Lineback, of our town, received an ovation by being twice called out, and Mrs. H. E. Fries sus tained by her fine execution the stronghold she has upon our popular audiences. Nor should we fail to call attention to the skilled accompani ments of Miss A. Van Vleck and Mrs. Hendricks. We note in the next place that the Philharmonic Society has drawn into its circle a large number of the best musicians in the Twin City. A citi zen of our towns who was present de clared that the general "make up" of the Philharmonic was as good as he had ever known it to be, and that the training of the Society cou.'d not have been finer than it is at the present time. The leader, Prof. Skilton, of Salem Female Academy,. has put his best enorts into tne work, and we can say with truth that the leader magni fied the Society and the work of the Society magnified the leader. We did not know which to admire most last eveoing, the graceful manner in which Prof, bkilton conducted the entire programme, or the skill and tact with which the large company who took part allowed themselves to be con ducted. Mr. E. A. Ebert, we believe, is the President of the Philharmonic, and to him and to all the members the most hearty congratulations are due. Another point calls for special crit icism. It is the fact that one of the most pleasing cantatas given in our midst for many years was giyen last night, ana the work was directed by the composer himself, Prof. Skilton. The cantata is entitled "Lenore," it being the famous poem of Edgar Allen Poe, arranged to music by Prof. Skilton. The thought of the poem is briefly this: Lenore, the lovely maiden, is dead. Friends gather about the bier, and ask Guy de Vere why be has no sorrow, lie replies that they are no friends, they have no right to mourn, and that their interest is only mock ery, they really lejoice that she is dead. They acknowledge that his ac cusations are true but urge him to unite lb a solemn funeral hymn, to which he replies that her soul has gone to be beside the King of Heaven, and that since this is a blessed state no bell shall toll, no note of sorrow shall rise, but he will rejoice with her exalted estate in Heaven. These thoughts were beautifully worked out in music last evening. Prof. Skilton explained that many of the thoughts had come to him sug gested by the customs of the com munity, sucb as the funeral proces sions in the avenue leading from church to grave-yard; or the solemn announcing of the death of a member from the church steeple, or the sacred but triumphant Easter morning service at sunrise. As to the merit of the composition we can justly say that it was a classical production of the highest order, and yet so solemn at times, so sweetiand tender at others, and so well rendered by the Philhar monic and by Dr. Griggs that an im pression was made seldom equaled by any effort in our midst. Nor should we forget that as a com munity we have a composer in our midst who is able to produce results such as were attained last evening. The community and the Academy are to be congratulated on the residence of Prof. Skilton among us. Last evening's concert may be taken as the key note for the winter's concert enjoyments, of which there will be a number in the near future. This was the first concert held in the renovated chapel of the Academy, and the beautiful tints on walls and ceil ings served to enhance the attractive appearance of the performers.

This Will Be Done to Secure Valuable Property Deeded to the Asylum by a Native Carolinian Who Died in California Recently. The Grand Lodge of North Carolina was in extraordinary session at Ral eigh last week. Dr. Francis M. Moye, of Wilson, the Grand Master, presid ed. Among the prominent officers present were Dr. R. J. Noble, Deputy Grand Master, J. A. Leach, Gr. Junior Warden, Wra. Sanford, Treas urer, J. C. Drewry, Secretary, Francis D. Winston, Marshall. Other well- known Masons present were Post Grand Master F. H. Busbee and Hon. John McRae, Dave Bell, of Enfield, J. W. Thompson. W. A. Withers. M. Bowes, G. Rosenthal and W. H. Sum merell The special business was what the order knows as the "Bradley gift." The facts are: Mr. J. A. Bradley a native of North Carolina, a bachelor devoted to North Carolina, while sick in a hospital in Oakland, Cal., deeded to the Oxford Orphan asylum, valua ble property in Minneapolis, Minne sota. The rental of the proporty is $1,600 per annum. The heirs at law of Mr. Bradly, many of whom live in this State, have constituted action to set aside that deed, and bis will which was made short ly after the execution of the deed. They allege a want of mental capacity in him to make such contracts. The case is now pending in California to set aside the will, and in Minneapolis to set aside the deed. As no trustee was named in the deed, the Grand Lodge met to name a trustee and after discussion it was decided to incorpor ate the Oxford Orphan Asylum. The property used at Oxford will continue that or the Gand Lodge. The officers are to remain as now, and the directors are to be elected by the Grand Lodge and appointed by the Governor. The entire purpose is to meet certain legal phases of the case suggested by the counsel of the order who is Hon. F. H. Busbee, of itaieign. The letters of incorporation will be filed in Granville county before the clerk. The corporators names are: The Grand Lodge, F. M. Moye; G. M., J. C. Drewey; Grand Secretary and Governor, Elias Carr. The Grand Lodge is given forty five fiftieths of the control. - REV. S. B. TURRENTINE. Centenary's Former Pastor Wbo Goes to Charlotte. The Charlotte Observer pays a high compliment to Centenary's former pastor. It says: "Rev. S. B. Turrentine is, perhaps, the foremost of the young preachers of the Western North Carolina Con ference. He is about 30 years old, and four years ago was appointed to Cen tenary Methodist church at Winston, which is one of the leading churches of that denomination in the State. It was thought by some that be was per haps too young to fill such an appoint ment, but he filled it with sueb great acceptability that the people desired him to remain in charge of the cnurcn, and he did remain in charge during the entire term of four years, during which time the church was greatly built up in all branches of its work He is not only a most attract ive speaker.but is an exceptionally fine pastor, and stirs up great enthusiasm amongst bis members. He was pre pared for college by Prof. J. F. Heit man. He is a graduate of the Univer sity of North Carolina, and also of the theological department of Van derbllt University, always standing at the bead of his classes. The mem bers of Trinity church were uoani mous in their desire to have him as their pastor, and certainly they could not have found a member of the Wes tern North Carolina Conference who is better equipped for building up and establishing tueir new cnurcn." .- Watch.Outfor Them. The following article, clipped from an-xcbange, win oouotiess prove in teresting reading for a number of.far mers and produce dealers: . "The large cities are now said to be swarming with bogus commission firms organized to swindle farmers and country merchants out of their produce. Farmers should be careful who they ship any kind of produce to in the cities. Be sure that you are dealing with responsible firms. It will pay the farmer nine times out of ten to trade witb the home merchant, rather than to try to slip their pro- . Ba ut loarKeu." are enjoying themselves again. TINEY SMITH. OF STOKES. He Drew a Pistol on Ticket-Agent Mo Inall Disfigured. From Daily Sontinel Dec. 4th. Considerable excitement was created on Liberty street last night, about 9:25 o'clock, when Tiney Smith, an In toxicated farmer from Stokes county, drew a pistol on Ticket-agent Mclnall, of the African Wonder museum, and, witb several oaths, threatened his life. Smith first visited the museum about 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon, and was admitted free of charge. He returned shortly afterward, accompa nied by several of his farmer friends. After he left he began to pay periodi cal visits to the bar-room, until he became beastly drunk, then visited the museum once more, this time be ing accompanied by several friends also. He was admitted each time free of charge. Last night he again went to the museum, when the man who was handling the tickets and so liciting patronage informed him that he would have to purchase a ticket He refused and forced bis way inside and began cursing and abusing the colored pianist. Mr. Mclnall inform ed him that he would have to aban don the use of such obscene language, and the agent asked mm to retire from the buildiog. He did so, but as he left he whipped out a shining revolver and threatened to kill the agent. Mr. Mclnall made a jump at him and landed a tremendous blow between the eyes, breaking his nose and disfiguring bis face in general. The wounded man lay writhing in agony, with blood flowing freely from his nose and mouth, until be was re moved to Brown's warehouse, where he was attended by Drs. Dalton and Hamlin. Ticket-agent Mclnall was arrested soon afterward and released from cus tody on his own recognizance until this morning. Later. Since the above was put in type it is learned that Smith left town at an early hour this morning. His injuries are not as serious as at first supposed. He was afraid of be ing arrested for carrying a concealed weapon. DID HE FREEZE TO DEATH? Robt. WatktnP, White. Found Dead In His Wagon. Robt. Watkins, a white man, was found dead near Haymeadow, Wilkes county, several days ago. Some think he froze to death while others contend that new brandy was "the cause of it all." . Watkins bad been over the moun tains with a load of produce and was returning home. He had been drink ing heavily. some time during the night he drove up to bis brother's house, Shaw Watkins, who lives near Haymeadow. They heard the wagon, but supposed it was some one passing and paid no attention to it. Next morning they were very much surprised to see the team standing near the house, and on investigation found Bob cold in death. He was sitting witb bis legs crossed, leaning against the side of the wagon bed, with his bead resting In the palm of bis hand. The mules had broken the tongue out of the wagon and had turned around and were eating hay from the front end of the wagon. It is supposed that he was too drunk to note passing events, and, as the night was bitterly cold, thus froze to death. Watkins was 27 years old and leaves a family. , REV. DR. W. S. CRE ASY. A High Compliment Paid Centenary's New Pastor. The Charlotte Methodist prints the following concerning Rev. Dr. Creasy, the new pastor of Centenary church, thin city: "Many will feel that one whose Dlace will be hard to fill has gone when Dr. Creasy takes his departure from unariotte. ms worK in unar lotte, as elsewhere, has been success ful. Nearly 300 have been added to the membership oi the church, the church completed, most of the In debtedness paid or subscribed, an organ, the best in the city, put In the church in short, everything lmprov ed. The congregation built up much when the cnurcn was completed, and has held up. We hear the people speaKing oi , nis spienaio ser mons during the past few weeks. - In spite of four years drawing on his resources and the afflictions in his family this year, his sermons are fresh and hold the neoule. The Dr. is one of the most gifted men we have ever known. On hard circuits be was most successful, and every station he has served has, during his pastorate, naa great success. "The place that gets him. will be an exception if It don't have a rapid growta unasr nil ministry." FOR THE COLORED RACE. WIL.li RECEIVE 94 60 FROM THE PEABODY FUND. The Slater Industrial Academy and State Normal School, Located on Columbian Heights What the Institution is Doing. Prof. S. G. Atkins, President of the Slater Industrial Academy and State Normal School, for the colored race, located on "Columbian Heights," is in receipt of a very kind letter from Prof. John C. Scarborough, State Su perintendent of Public Instruction. The latter says: "It affords me much pleasure to in form you that your schtol will receive from the Peabody Fund, for the pay ment of teachers' salaries in the normal department of said school, for the school year of 1895-'96. the sum of 8460. Check for this amount will be sent to the treasurer of your school wnen received from ir. (Jurry, general agent of the Peabody Fund." It was especially through President Atkins' efforts that the school secured the $1,000 appropriation from the Legislature, 'Ibis 4b0 from the Pea body Fund is also the result of Prof Atkins' personal appeal to Dr. Curry. hiis purpose has been and is to secure enough money to pay the teachers without using the money collected by the agents North. This money thns collected will be used mainly in devel opment in buildings, etc Profs. J. S. Hill and S. J. Crews are doing yeoman service now in this di- :tion at the North. President Atkins feels that all this success is largely in view of the co operation of the public-spirited white citizens on toe Hoard or Trustees and out of it, together with the cordial aid of the newspapers of the city. The institution has four first-class teachers and 130 hard-working pupils. The industrial work or the Academy is becoming an important factor of the work. As an indication of this it will be interesting to note that the sewing department of the Academy, in charge of Miss Sarah C. Johnson, the preceptress, has just been award ed a bronze medal for the excellence of its exhibit at the Cotton States and International Exposition, at At lanta. These medals are few and far between and to receive one is a great honor to the Academy. The nhoemakiug department will be opened the first of January. CHARLEY WAS HOMESICK. He Left Day is School and Started Northward. The Washington Times of Saturday says: Charlie Keer, a cadet at Davis Military School, Winston, N. C , was arrested last evening by Policeman Foley and landed at No. 8 station on the charge of vagrancy. Young Keer is 16 years of age, and lives at Con nellsville, Pa., bis father, Mr. H. M. Keer, being a well known contractor in that place. The boy has been attending the military school in North Carolina since September 1, but growing tired of that life and becoming homesick, decided to return to bis native town. He ran away from school last Tuesday morning and made his way to this city walking and beating freight trains. He reached Alexandria on Thursday night and entered Wash ington yesterday morning. When arrested by the officers on the railroad track, near Eckintcton, he was on h's way to Harper's Ferry. He was attired in his uniform of gray, trimmed off with brass buttons and black braid. He has light hair, light eyes and a fair complexion, is about 5 feet 1 1nches in height, and talks witb energy and earnestness. He says he does not feel in any way sore from his trip, but has contracted a bad cold. Otherwise be feels very well and fully intends continuing his trip If released at court. He had a little over a dollar when be left school, and has bad a pretty hard pull to make it last him. : Brother and Sister Married. There was a marriage at Chestnut Hill, Rowan county, on Dec. 1st, - in which a brother and sister, by affini ty, were married. The contracting parties were Miss Prudy Hopkins and Mr. Jchn Pennington. The Salisbury World says the bride's father and the groom's mother are husband aud wife, each having been married the second time. Hence the young folks are step-brother and sister. So by marryiLg her step-brother the bride becomes her own sister-in-law and the daughter-in-law of her own father and the groom becomes ' his own brother and the JBtep-son-ln-law of his mother. -Until this tangle Is nn weared we will not trace the relation ship any farther. THE PRESIDENT'S YIEWS. HIS MESSAGE SUBMITTED TO BOTH HOUSES OF CONGRESS. It is a Lengthy Document and Deals Principally With Our Foreign Re lations and the Financial Ques tionAn Epitome of Ic The President's message, which was submitted to Congress yesterday, Is quite a lengthy document, and deals principally with our foreign relations and the financial question. From an epitome of the message in today's Richmond Dispatch we give the fol lowing: The Pesident applauds Chile for re suming specie payments. He touches upon China and Japan, which have caused him great anxiety. The read iness and ability of our government to protect the missionaries and secure the punishment of the offenders will pi event further outrages. The customary cordial relations be tween this country and France have been undisturoed. except in the Wal ler case. France is In favor of the arbitration of disputed and knotty troubles. She has invited the United States to participate in the great In ternational Exposition at Paris in 1900, and the President recommends thdt the invitation be accepted. Our relations with Great Britain are un usually important. The seals and questions concerning them, come in lor notice. When he gets to Germany, the President gives us some of the argu ments against a protective tariff. Protection bas grown in that country. Like the United States, it bas, be thinks, adopted theories. The Alaska boundary is mentioned. When he copies to the Venezula question, toe President says: "The traditional and established policy of this government is firmly 'ippused to a forcible increase by any European Power of its territorial pos sessions on this continent." This declaration be emphasizes and repeats in other words. He is emphatically of the opinion that England ought not to resort to arms to enforce her demands upon Venezula a much weaker power hut should submit the question in its en tirety to arbitration He ridicules the idea (as far as he may do so with dig nity and decorum) of England draw ing a line through the man of Vene zuela, and saying this part of the question we will arbitrate; this part we win not arbitrate, lie thinks England should arbitrate the entire dispute i be Hawaiian matter comes in for proper notice. The President recommends that our government provide official residences lor American ambassadors and for eign ministers- The President puffs Jaoan. He says the United States was the first coun try to recognize her wonderful ad vance. Here Nicaragua is incidental ly mentioned. The Czar's coronation the President mentions. He bas instructed the United States Minister to Russia to do what is proper in the premises. me President says that however much we may sympathize with the people of Cuba, we must observe our treaty relations with Spain. No effort has been soared to make Turkey do justice to the Christians in Armenia. The Ottoman Government has forever exempted an American college for girls from taxatioc. No lives of American citizens have ben sacrificed. Consular reform the President treats as a subject worthy of much study. The President now turns from the consideration of all these foreign mat ters and approaches a subject of domestic concern, which, he says, is more important than any other which can engage the attention of our peo pie namely, toe unanclal question, and (we presume) the tariff question ine fresident styles protection enervating paternalism." " This pbiase is a taking one. It will Uvea long time upon people's tongues. About half of bis long message Is devoted to financial questions He gives a good deal of history in this connection. We cannot say that be presents any new arguments, but we may say tnat be handles the old ones witb marked ability. He tells bow he bas managed to keep gold and silver at a parity. He advocates the retiring or the greenbacks of United States notes. How? By exchanging United States bonds, bearing a low rate of interest, for bonds of large as well as or small denominations. Mr. Cleveland, indirectly bints that he believes that the free coinage of silver at 16 to 1 might be accomplish ed if the leading commercial nations of the world would uoite in an effort in that behalf. Here are his words: "Sound financial standing is based upon gold alone. It is not witbin the Independent reach of any single nation." On the third-term question the President makes no deliverance. Railroads and Cotton'Mllls. Special reports to the Baltimore Manufacturers' Record show that there is a decided tendency towards a revival in railroad improvements and construction in the South, quite a number of enterprises of tbis kind being reported as in prospect, for early construction The building of a number of short roads in mineral and timber districts is opening up some extensive properties which Western capitalists and others are preparing to develope. Cotton mill enterprises continue to attract attention and a number have been reported during the past week. They Were Popular In W Inston. The following is taken from the Wilmington Star: "Rev. W. O. Nor man closes his labors as pastor of Grace M. E. church next Sunday, and Monday morning he will leave for Elizabeth City to attend the North Carolina Annual Conference. Mr. and Mrs. Norman are not only be loved by every member of the church and congregation with whom he has labored the past four years, but has hosts of friends and admirers in all the other churches of the city."

The Democrat say s : The event of the week, and one might well say of the season, was the mar riage of Miss Florence liuley Lemon and Mr. William Waller Farisli at Christ church last Wtrine-xiay even ing at 8:30 o'clock.
