A The Sew Auditorium Crowded En couraging Addresses and Splendid Music Keport of the Board of Directors and of Treasurer. The anniversary service of the Y.M. O. A. Sunday afternoou was indeed i spiring to the aggressive officers of that organiz ition. The attendance was exceedingly large, every chair being occupied, many weie compelled to stand throughout the entire service. The crowd was estimated at no less than 500 people. The program carried out was no less pleasing or successful. After several selections by the Y. M. C A Orchestra, President Spaugh opsned the service with a few api ropriate words, in which he exten ded a hearty welcome to all present. He also alluded to the Association's new and lovely home. He then an nounced a SONG SERVICE which wculd be led by Rev. A. D. Thteler. After singing several se'.ec- io is, in which the audience joined heartily, Rev. Rjbt. E Caldwell offer ed an earnest prayer in behalf of the Association and its work. IDE ANNUAL ItEFORT. President Spaugh next read the annual report of the Board of Direc tors. It was addressed to the '"sus tainers, members and friends of the Young Men's Christian Association of Winston-Salem." The Directors make humble and grateful acknowledge ment of the many blessings aud en couragements given them by the Mas ter, aud add that "in several respects the p ist year has been the most event ful aud gratifying of any since the organization of the Association in the year ls.8 and marks an epoch in the history of the Association." Il speaks of the neec. the Directors felt, for several years, of a larger and better (.quipped home in which to carry on the work for young men. It tells of the meeting of the Board, held on January 11th, 1897, when a com mittee, consisting of Messrs. Ettrd, Hicks and Spaugh, was appointed to look into the matter of securing new ro"m8. A detailed review is given of the liberal proposition of Brown & Carter for the leasing of the old opera house, the letting of the contract, etc. The report then says: "We confidently believe the wisdom of the move is questioned by no one, and we feel encouraged in the hope that our efforts and action have the endorsement and approval of all mem bers and friends of the Association It will be readily seen upon an inspec tion of the rooms that the arrange ment is far better than ever before, covering about five times the fl'ior space previously used and very much better adapted to the work and needs of the Association. A well appointed parlor has been provided; the reading room row has a much larger and bet ter supply of reading matter; and a suitable office and social room have been arranged, connecting with read ing room by a large sliding door. The Gymnasium equipment as yet remains about the same as heretofore, but as soon as possible we hope to furnish it with a good supply of apparatus. The equipment of the bath rooms is now very gratifying, two new showers hav ing been added, making four showers available at once, besides the tub. We doubtless now have the best equipped bathing department in the State. One of the most gratifying features of our new home is the splendid audito rium." This is the first time in the history of the Association that it has been able to hold an anniversary service lu its own rooms. The total cost of the alterations on the building and the equipment thus far has been in round numbers, $1,800, the greater part of which is yet unpaid. About $750 is needed to complete the equipment of the rooms and pay off the indebted ness that is over-due and pressing. The directors hope to be able to take up educational work this year in the way of night classes. They now have the room and hope soon to re ceive the means. About 10C new members were added to the Association during the past year. The directors feel confident that many jouog men were helped during 1897 and that many more were kept from going into sin because of the open doors at night of the Y. M. C. A. The Sunday afternoon gospel meet ings were held regularly with good in terest. The noonday prayer meetings was also held every day except Sun days The attendance at these meeting is increasing. Much valuable committee work was done during the year, es pecially by the Finance. Religious Ser vice, Membership and Entertainment Committees. Special mention is made of the un tiring efforts of the Ladies'. Auxiliary as follows : ".bach succeeding year makes us feel more and more the value of this most important committee and we desire to take this opportunity of publicly tendering our best thanks to the ladies who, during the past year have labored so faithfully and earn estly for the Association in connection with the committee work. May God's benediction rest upon them." The directors hope that the Asso ciation may soon be given such finan cial support that the ladies can be re lieved of this burden and the direc tors and secretary can give more of their time and efforts to religious in terests. A little more than $2,000 was pledged in support of the past year's work, but all of this has not been paid. Referring to General Secretary Hicks, the Directors say: 'He has proved himself efficient and energetic and we would express our appreciation of bis faithful and acceptable work.' Following the report was a beauti fully rendered selection by the auar tette, Messrs. Chick, Cromer, Stockton and tsynum. ADDRESS BY DR. BROWN. Dc Brown said be had been asked to simply hint at some, of the work done by the Association. He was glad to state that be was here when the movement started in the old Joyner building. There was no secretary or reading room. It professed to be doing Y. M. C. A. work, but the Doctor re garded it nothing more than a prayer meeting. Interest began dying out; the body was small; it was given cor dial and sat up with, but it died. The speaker referred to the necessity of organization, saying that unless life itself is organized it will not do much work. The Association was next reorgan ized after Evangelist Pearson's meet ing here in iss-i. it started on wttn 125 members. Mr. W. A. Blair was President and Mr. E. L. Harris secre tary. The Doctor spoke briefly of the work done by tbe various officers and referred to the "boom days" when our people thought greenbacks grew on trees and that gold could be found in abundance under the broomsage fields Dr. Brown concluded his excellent and well received address by offering con srratulatlons to the community upon having such a handsome auditorium and Y. M. O. A. rooms. .-. , - " . "LIGHT OF TDK YrORXJ." This was the title of a solo which waa rendered very sweetly and verj artistically by Miss Emma Lienbach to tbe delight of the large audience. ADDRESS BY REY. A. D. THLEE 'The Religious Part of the Asso ciation" was tbe theme of a brief, but practical addres by Rev. A. D. Thae ler. He endorsed the atbletic club and reading room, but said tbe main object of the Y, M. C. A. is to touch thrt young man's spiritual nature. "The world recognizes the power of spirituality," said Mr. Tbaeler, who added that a young man can grow to what be and his family wants him to be. ANNIVERSARY ADDRESS. Rev. H. E. Rondthaler delivered the anniversary address which was strong andencouragtog. He regarded the Association here without a peer in the State. He spoke of the present wide use of initials. There are four, (Y. M. C. A.) said the speaker, that stand out and are cherished all over the world. He had come to the con clusion t bat in tbe minds of most people those letters stand for "Chris tian Manliness" in other words an "all round man." A town'is made more by its young men than anything else, continued Mr Rondthaler, who said he knew of a town - in this State which is being damaged by its disorderly young men. He termed the Y.M. u. A. a oiacK- smitb shop. The Christian young men are tbe ones who will be Kings in this community, added tbe speaker in concluding bis admirable talk. President Spaugh announced that a gospel service would be held there at 4 o'clock next Sunday. It will be ad dressed by Rev. J. A. B. Fry. After singing "All flail the Power of Jesus Name," the benediction was pronounced by Rev. G. W. Callahan.

Seventy of the principal cotton mills of the New England States will today come under the sweeping order of a reduction of ten per cent, or more in wages, and this reduction may bring on labor strikes which will prove the beginning of an industrial battle greater in extent and more disastrous in effect than any in tbe previous bis tory of cotton manufacturing in tbe United States. The strikes will be directed by the labor unions. SERIOUS TROUBLE EXPECTED. New Bedford, Mass., Jan. 17.

Moore, of Moore's Springs. The father went out with his son and with his own eyes saw the two dead dogs or what was left of tbem. The "killer" had eaten about half of each animal. The story goes that be does the same thing with all the dogs he kills. Like the other citizens, the Regis ter of Deeds has his curiosity aroused and he is anxious to see that "dog destroyer." Of course he would want a "shooting iron" along when he meets that animal. Many people who readhis will no doubt say let the "dog killer" keep up his good work. THE WILSONS.

Burton, Esq., brought the controversy over the North Carolina Railroad Commissionership to the attention of the Supreme Court Mon day, on a motion for a writ of at tention against L. C. Caldwell aud J. H. Pearson, present incumbents, and asking an order from said Court re storing the offices to J. W. Wilson and S. Otho Wilson. The ground upon which the application was based is that Caldwell and Pearson had vio lated the writ of supersedeas issued by the Chief Justice of the bupreme Court of North Carolina in the case of the appeal of the Wilsons from the judgment of the State Supreme Court giving the offices to Caldwell and Pearson. Tbe Court declined to act on the motions until the papers hied in tne case were read and considered. SILVER AND GOLD. The Resolution to Pay Government Bonds With Kit her.

Sl'I'KEME COURT Many Rumors Atloat Regarding the Future of the C. V. & Y. V. There are many rumors as well as opinions alloat in regard to the future of theC. F. & Y. V. Railway. Judge Simonton decided that the road must be sold as a whole and not by division, but the New York bondholders ap pealed to the United States Circuit Court of Appeals, where the case is now under advisement. An opinion is not expected to be tiled until next month. The impression seems quite general that if Judge Simonton is sustained by the Circuit, Court of Appeals there will be no further delay except that necessary for carrying out the decree of the court for the public sale of the property, and that the Seaboard Air Line will have possession of the prop erty in sixty days or less. Again it U I said that, if t he Circuit Court of Ap ! peals allirms the decision of Judge I Simonton, which is likely, there Is still opportunity for another appeal this I time to the Supreme Court of the United States 1 One of the lea ling counsel for the "New York committee" his recently I said that if Judge Siinonton's order to sen tne ro id as an entirely is sus tained, the New York people will take the case to 1 lie United States Supreme Court on appeal. Another prominent attorney of th . similar .'pinion. s State, expresses a So, it is manifest that much de pends on this question of final appeal. If the case goi-s to the Supreme Court it will involve serious delay in effec ting ;,he sale of t he Cape Fear and Yadkin Valley road, and 011 this de pends t he early success of any plan looking to reorgan iz it ion. prepnr-ri it irruts of th f ' V!'.
