PRITCHARD SAYS BOLTERS ARE IN THE SADDLE. Puts Skinner Down as a Leader of the Populist Forces Butler and Ills Followers Hold a Caucus And Issue an Address. Senat' r Pritcba'd m ide I he follow ing statement thi.itlv afur bis elec tion: "This victory m,,in tbit the mid- dle-of-thf--rad- IVpulists are in tlie saddle. It means that Col Skinner is out only leader of the Popuist parry In North Carolina but by til able niuDHgemenL of this C'tiiei. he has demonstrated th- fact that he will rnnk in the future m a leader tf the P- pullst cause He has otwrv.d ev ery pledge made to the K- puolleiiu party two years ego and in (loin' so be has not required a slot le pledge from me or any otber Republican and with out any sacrifice of the aliver, for he knows I occupy the same position now I did when first elected." POPULIST CAUCUS. A telenm from Raleigh says that Senator Butler attended a Pupullit caucuc, which met for map ping out legislation. It is thought oy some that the bitter feellDg arous ed during the whole contest will re sult In the cessation of further co-operation, both during the session of the legislature and afterwards bs tween the regular Populists and the supporters of Prltchard. It looks as If entirely new lines may be drawn as one of the results of Butler's defeat. The caucus expelled the bolters and cast them out of the party. The first real buMness done was the passing of the following rather caus tic resolutions : "Resolved lt, That no one will be allowed to tit with this caucus of the Peepie's party members of the Legislature who did not vote for our nominee for U. S oenator, Dr. Cyrus Thompson. "R?solvtd 2nd, That no person be allowed to attend the meetings of this caucus who did not favor ana support said nominee. "Resolved 3rd, That we will be gov erned by the majority rule of this cau cus, and that we will vote In the open sessions of the Legislature in accord ance with the decision of said caucus, on all matters coming before the same." After the resolutions h. d been passed there was a general exchange of opinion as to the cr urse the Peo ple's party should pursue. It was Anally decided to issue an address to t he voters of the People's party In North Carolina, and a committee, of which Senator Butler was a member, was appointed to prepare the address. ! The addess was prepared, type writ ten, reported and adapted. It is a lengthy but caustic document and strikes the bolters some pretty heavy blows. OLDEST TnTHE SOUTH. Salem Female Academy and Other Educational Institutions. The last issue of the"Academy" seta at rest all doubt as to the SalemFemale Academy being the "oldest female college" In the South. The Academy says: "The question Is frequently asked: 'Is the Academy the oldest female college In the South ? The Moravian Church has two older institutions for the higher education of women in the North, the Bethlehem Female Semi nary, founded In 1749, and Linden Hall, founded In 1704. while Salem Female Academy, the third of the series, was not founded until 1805, 94 years ago. There were no other schools for women at that date. Miss Emma Willlard opened an academy at Watertown, N. Y., In 1819, which, later, became the famous Troy hem Inary. In 1833, Oberlln College was opened for both sexes la 1837, Mary Lyon began Mount Holyoke In Mas sachusetts, but It was 10 years later before Latin could be Introduced, so great was the prejudice against It Smith, Wellesley and Yassar were all founded later." A DISHONEST FARMER. Had a Load of Hay Weighed With a B!( Man la It. Market Clerk Benton, In weighing a load of hay on Saturday for a coun tryman, noticed a large bulk on top of the load, which looked very much like a man covered up To satisfy his suspicion, Mr. Benton told the colored boy, who assists him around the maiket, to follow the wagon and see If a man did not come out. It was not long before the boy returned with a message to the effect ,that "a great big man crawled out from under the hay " Upon investi gation, the market clerk learned that the fellow weighed about 180 pounds Mr. Benton said he expected to tackle the owner of the hay when he returned to weigh his wagon and make him give the weight of the fel low who was hid when the nay was weighed. HER FIRST HUSBA5D LIVES. Mrs. McCrlchard Thought Him Dead and Married Again. An "Enoch Arden" affair In real life turned up in the Superior Court at Charlotte last week. Lute A. Mc Crichard was granted a divorce from Valdelia McCrlchard. Back of this is a queer romance. Mrs. McCrich- ard's husband left her many years ago She married again and was living hap pily with ner second cusoand. 11 er son was traveling In South Carolina a short time ago and met his father face to face. He came home and told his mother her first husband was alive. He has never returned, but she de cided that it was best to separate from her second husband and the di vorce was granted.

The Young Men's Missionary Socie ty of the Moravian Home' Church cel ebrated its seyenth anniversary with appropriate exercises last Friday r n.tfht.

Pfohl read a frater nal letter from the Young Neu's Mis sionary Society of Bethlehem, Pa. He also read an encouraging letter, writ ten last year by Mr. Henry Moore, a Moravian Missionary, who departed this life In November. The reports of the fficers was fol lowed with an edlfjlng address by Rev. Howard Rndthaler, who gave an Interesting review of the work of the first Moravian Ml-elonarles, in foreign countries, as well as those of recent yr ars. ne told how a little band of ten people forsook their homes and loved ones In Bohemia and went out to serve God as they thought best. He also told of the Missionary work being done at Alberta, Canada, by two Misstcnaiies, who went from the United States Rev Clement Hoyler, from near Njw York and a classmate of Rev A D Tl aeier in College; and Rev. Wiliiam Schwartze, from Penn sylvania, a classmate of Rev. Mr. Rondthaler. At the close of the address a collec tion was taken, after which Bishop R'ndtbaler announced that the an nual meeting of the Woman's Mis sionary Society would be held at 3 o'clock Sunday afternoon In the church. The exercises closed with the sing ing of an appropriate selection, "From Greenland's Icy Mountains." The benediction was pronounced by Rev. A D. Tt ae er. THE ARMENIANS. Rev. H. E. Rontbaler's Address Be fore Brotherhood of St. Andrew The address on this subject ;dellver- ed by Rev. H. E Rondthaler In the lecture room of the Episcal church, Thursday evening, was of especial in terest. The subject because familiar Is like ly to be regarded as exhausted, where as in point of fact, it was never more pressing than at this day. Thousands of homeless and starviog people, and tens of thousands of orphans are look ing to Christian lands for Drotectlon and food. Mr. Rondthaler gave a brief history of this horrible Christian nation, of their country, the scene of the "rainbow of peace" Immediately upon the flood, now deluged with the blood of martyrs, of tbelr industrious character and of their acblevments and of their long contlnous oppression irom toe juras ana run. 't he three massacres perpetrated, evidently by order of the Sultan, were described. The immediate occasion of these massacres originated from the effort of a few Armenians to redress their wrongs which resulted In wholesale slaughter of the unoffending as well, while Christian nations were looking on without lilting a band to stay the assassins sword. Armenia, like Niobe, surrounded by her unprotected children, lifts up her face In prayer to God and to humanity to serve and defend. There are three duties incumbent upon pbilantropic people, said the lecturer. The first is to awaken and engage public opinion in the cause. Secona, to sustain the cause by prayer. Third, to give generously to the malntalnance of people who might have saved themselves by denying tbelr Christian faith. BRANDY CHERRIES DID IT. Two Oeeae Became Intoxicated and Were Thought to be Dead. Sallle Johnson, a colored woman living near the Lutheran graveyard, in Salisbury, had a rather novel ex perience with two geese Tuesday, says the World. She bad a bottle of brandy cherries, which, on investigating, she believed to be spoiled. She threw the cherries in the yard and two geese belonging to Sallle came along and devoured them What was her amaxement then to go into the yard Wednesday and find the geese breathless, quackless stone dead she supposed. She picked the feathers fiom the inanimate geese and threw them into a ditch near by. If she was surprised Wednesday morning, she was struck dumb with amazement when the two geese with out a feather to speak for their gen uineness, walked to her back door and began to chatter for food. They had eaten the entire bottle' of brandy cherries, became drunk and only sobered up after being stripped of their plumage. This is an actual event and just one of the many strange things that are happening dally. M'KINLEY TO TACKLE IT. Why the Negotiations Wltb Spain Were Stopped. London, Jan. 21. The correspond ent at Parlsof the Daily News says : ' "During the negotiations with the United States last week Senor Cano vas, the Spanish Premier, was sur prised and dismayed to receive an in timation from Washington that Sec retary Olney would have no time to settle the Cuban question, and that he would leave President McKinley's hands free to deal with it. Two days later Senor Ca novas Issued an official denial that negotiations were proceed ing. "It is a great blow at Senor Canovas, who has no confidence in Gen. Wey ler's ability to suppress the rebellion. He is credited with an Intention to re sign if Gen. Weyler has not given a death blow to the revolution by the beginning of the rainy season." POPS. RESOLVE AGAIN. THEY SEND A PROPOSITION TO THE REPUBLICANS. The Butler Faction Draw Another Batch of Resolutions Relative to Fusion Republicans to Con alder Them In Caucus. The. Populists held another caucus In Raleigh Thursday night and adopt ed the following which was sent by the I publico caucus : "whereas, Terms of co-operatk.n were last summer agreed upon by the organization of the People's party and the organization of the Republican paity which expressly inc ucied and covered everything in the S ate elec tion, also ail matters arising to be dealt with and dl-posed of by the present General Ass-mby except the Governorship, lieutenant-Governorship, Senatorship and auditorshlp, which were expressly, left out of the terms of the co-operation, with each of co-operation, with each of said or ganization left free to purua its re spective course with reference to the same : And, Whereas, The first three places referred to abov?, as expressly left out of the terms of co operation j have been respectively determined and settled in ravor or the Republican party and the auditorshlp In favor of the Populist party, each organ zttlon pursuing separate and opposite cours es with reference to first three as the terms of co-oreratton gave thm the right to do with reference to all four. And, Whereas, each party to the sntd contract has faithfully carried out to the letter every term and con dition Included In the said comtract that has arisen up to the present time: Therefore, Resolved, That the Peo ple's party caucus hereby communi cates to the Republican caucus its de sire and readiness to proceed to carry out In good faith all matters yet un determined, that were contemplated and Included In the said compact which finds two organizations in pres ent co-operation. Resolved, further, That we are ready to appoint a committee repres enting our organization to meet a similar committee representing your oranizatlon;two committees to confer on all matters yet undetermined and to report their recommendations to their respeitlve organization for their approval and execution ts they may determine." When this was received by the Re publican cacucus cnyl the House branch of the latter was in session. So the resolutions were not read, but a sppcial Republican caucus was called for tonight to consider the matter. The resolut ion ions a re la few words, being an inquiry by the Populists as to whether Repullcans tnteud to carry out pledges. If ac ceted by the Republicans they put the bolters In a hole. Lieutenant-Governor Reynolds said all Republicans In the caucus were greatly pleased with the letter and spirit of the resolutions, and be ex pressed to the Populist caucus his re gret that they were not received ear lier In the evening. BUTLER'S HOT SPEECH. He Reads the Riot Act to Bolters and Republicans. Senator Butler's paper latt week was like a war cry. He reads the riot act to the bolters and to the Republicans. There arefour or five columns of sharp and stinging denunciation. One head is: ''Combine of Rascality Spoil of Office and Patronage as a Fund for Corruption The Pritchard Sklnner D-al Shame Pet flidy and Disgrace Men Who Must Forever Rest Under Suspicion." lie attacks the bolters, saying that they denied that they would bolt; that Skinner said he would do and this was correct; that Skinner says he will put in white Populists as postmasters in the first district instead of negro Republicans. The pape.r goes on to say: "As for the Republicans who use Skinner as a tool, if you permit the full consum mation of the scheme you do It at the peril of your party's salvation. There fore do it if you dare. Co operation of Populists and Republicans here after Is impossible. The true Popu lists have determined to aim a death blow at any party which will resort to debauchery of men, then use these men for the purpose of knlflng'those who have trusted them as friends " Another editorial says: "A negro Senator said today in a speech that if the colored voters bad thought there would have been any opposition to Prltchard among the Populists the results might have been different. Does thts black fool understand and appreciate the power which gave him the slightest chance to be where he lr? If the results are different he will find such conditions as will per mit him and his kind to go hoary headed and wrinkled to the grave without ever being able to cast anoth er vote which may be counted."

About 5 o'clock yesterday morning flames broke out In the Medical College of Bellevue Hospital. The hospital pa tients were gathered In the corridors, but none of them bad to be removed, as the flames were confined to the col lege building. Shortly after the fire was discovered there was an explo sion, caused, it Is supposed, by chemi cals. The flames made rapid headway.and soon the interior of the building was gutted. The fourth floor was used as a dissecting room, where there were probably 30 bodies, all of which were cremated. The damage to the build ing and contents is estimated at about $20,000.

A BLOW ATTIIE TRUST AMERICAN TOBACCO CO 'S DE MURRER OVERRULED. -a Individuals Cannot Shield Them selves From Consequences of Wrong Doing by Pleading That Their Acts Were Corporate Ones. In New York Friday Judge Fitz gerald, in general sessions, handed down a decision overruling the de murrer to the indictment of the con spiracy against the American Tobacco Company. The opinion discussed gen erally the law touching upon conspi racy by a corporation. The defendants In the indictments are officers of the Company. They are: James B Duke, Wm. H. Butler, Wm. A. Mar burg, Lewis Glnter, George Arents, George W. Gall, Benjamin N. Duke, George W. Watts, Joslah Brown and Charles G. Emery. The co-indictments were filed on the complalut of the officers of the National Tobacco Company, who are the makers of a rival brand of cigarettes, and were found under the anti-trust law of 1895. By the decision of Judge F"lf,zgerald the directors and officers must stand trial. In overruling the demurrers, Judge Fitzgerald says that, In the opinion of the court, "Individuals cannot shield themselves from the conse quence of wrongdoing by pleading that tueir wrongful acts were corporate ones. The criminal liability of a corporation must be considered in a different manner from the civil liabili ty. Criminal intent was of the es sential elements In a conspiracy. This association being lawful, no presumption can arise against any of them from the fact of such associa tion. But If two or more or all of them enter into an unlawful agree ment they cannot be allowed to plead their lawful association for certain f)ur poses In bar of prosecution for un awful combination. In conclusion, the decision says : "If the proof in this case at bar should establish the allegations of the Indict ment, might not the refusal to sell to jobbers and dealers except upon the required conditions, be properly found to constitute, menace, coercion and intimidation? And If such methods or devices are retorted to by the de fendants to restrain lawful trade and commerce and create a monopoly are they not guilty of conspiracy V" FOUR PLACES FILLED. MaJ. JIcKlnley Slowly Getting His Cabinet Together.

Secretary of the Navy John D Long, of Massachusetts. Secretary of the Interior Joseph McKenna, of California. Secretary of Agriculture James II. Wilson, of Iowa. It is said to be almost a certainty that Gen. Alger, of Michigan, will go In as Secretary of War, but even his closest friends will not admit that Mr. McKioley has done anything more than'ito listen to their praises of the Michigan man. No promises seem to have been made. Circumstances,how ever, point strongly toward Alger. He is known to be a personal friend of McKlnley; no other name has been suggested for the War Department.
