Mr. G. W. Hinshaw, of this city;
Mr. H. W. Miller, of Raleigh, Secre
tary of the :North Carolina Midland
railroad, and J. B. Munson, division
freight agent for t,he Southern, re
turned to their respective homes last
week from a business trip over the new
road from Mocksville to Mooresville.
Mr. H. E. Fries, of Salem, was a
uiciuuer or tne committee to go over
the road, but was prevented from
taking the trip by other business en
gagements. The Object of Mr. Hinshaw anrl
Miller's visit was to adjust the old
subscriptions made to the new exten
sion. Mr. Munson's business was to work
on a revision of freight rates which
are to jro into oneratinn rn thn
line and those affected by it on other
lines. The new road will make local
fares and freight rates, from Winston,
West and South, less than at present.

Havana, Sept. 10. Ten thousand

C. A. G. Thomas, of Va
ville, delivered an interesting and in
structive address at the court-house,
last week, his subject being 'Junior
JewelsAmerica's Glory. "
He was heard by a large and appre
ciative audience many ladies bein
present. Dr. Thomas was happily in
troduced by Mr. O. B. Eaton.
The speaker announced that he
never talked over two hours and a
half on a warm night. He spoke first
ihu greatness of the old North State,
saying that no man can travoi f-,,.,.
the east to the west without being con
vinced of her richness in resources.
bhe is richer still in her people "
continued the shaker, who then
touched on the recent war with Spain
referring beautifully to the part North
Carolina took and of the blood shed
by Bagley and Shipp.
.,RrT,homareulo"ized the Masonic,
Odd Fellows, and Pythian orders, but
said the Juniors went one step ahead
of them all in its "Patriotism," stri

strong, vigorous man to help give to
every man and institution help. It has
been in existence since 1853 and has
members even in Porto Rico and the
i hilippine Islands. The order wants
manhood" above everything else.
Manhood" is the watchword of the
Juniors.
Dr. Thomas, in eloquent words, dis
cussed the three links of the order
Virtue, Liberty and Patriotism."
He said that "Virtue is the root; Lib-
" y "ue -ree ana fatnotism the fruit. "
It is a three-fold cord which cannot
oe Dronen.
Tho speaker reviewed the various
principles of the order. The first one,
he said, was Religious Liberty, with
out which the people cannot have Civil
Liberty. He denounced Catholicism,
saying that the Roman church was
using all its power to crush out Reliir
lous Liberty.
The second principle taken up was
entire separation of church and State,
n ii)e of Rome today, continued
Dr. Thomas, is the head of the Roman
uurcii m America. The Priests are
unmarried men. Referring to the ap
pointment of commissioners to adjust
the differences between Spain and the
United States, the speaker said that
Spam selected five Catholics and.
i resident McKinley was persuaded to
appoint one Catholic of the five to
represent tne United States. This
makes six Catholics sigainst four
Americans.
Third principle Restricting Immi
gration. "We need laws restricting
immigration." He gave some figures
showing the number of foreio-ners in
New York and several other States,
adding that North Carolina hj the
most American State in the Union.
rourtn principle Public School
system. Education in North Carolina
is at a low ebb. Statistics show that
.09,000 children in the State, of school
age, did not attend any school last
year; 4u,ouu attended from 0 to 8
weeks. The Junior order favors four
months' schools.
Fifth principle Reading the Bible
in the Public Schools. West Virginia
is the only State where the Holy Book
is read in the schools. "We want it
read in all the States," continued the
speaker.
Dr. Thomas concluded his fine ad
dress by waving a small flag of three
colors. The white, said he, is for
virtue; blue for love and liberty; red
for blood. "Let us honor and stand
by that flaar."

Washington, Sept. 9. -Secretary

of army affairs during trj war is

is not true that the President hsTs as

purpose in this direction. The Quar-

The Southern to Have a Double Track

The Sentinkl is assured that the

I connecting with the line to Moores
ville, or double track the present
main line between Greensboro
Salisbury or Charlotte.
a gentleman who holds an impor
tant position in the maintenance de
partment of the Southern is in Win
ston. He was in Kernersville vester-
wl i maKlnj-T. 80mo investigations.
While he declines to talk for publica
tion, enough was learned from him to
woik uiat me southern officials
now investigating to see what
uie oest tning to do.
ihe proposed line from Reidsville
via Winston would shorten the line
from Washington to Atlanta several
miles. While this is true, the present
main line, via Greensboro, has so
many side-tracks that it, would not
require a vast amount of money to
connect them, thereby making a
double track.
The present situation is such that
something must lie done and that at
u cany uaie. me Southern is hand
ling so many trains on the main line
that some of them are delayed almost
daily.
