The instructions given the Paris Peace Commission are voluminous. It is learned they reca pitulate the negotiations between Spain and the United States preceding the war, fix the conditions of Cuba's inde Iendeuce, explaining the rights of Spain, reserving her rights in regard to public and private property in the Antilles. The instructions regarding the Philippines are graduated so as to meet every hypothesis, leaving room for free criticism on the part of the Jommiss toners. KN ROUTK TO SPAIN.

Theraincamedown intorrents Thurs day night. It was a veritable 'gully washer." Some damage was done to several streets. There was a big washout at the 95 mile post on the Wilkesboro road. A work train was sent up from Greensboro to repair the damage. It passed through Winston at 3:10 Friday morning. There was an other big washout on the main line of the Southern, near Danville. A special train was sent to the scene. It required a car load of rock to repair the damage. HIGHEST EVER KNOWN. The passengers who went up on the Wilkesboro train were stopped at Donnaha on account of the washout, etc. An engine was attached to a coach and the passengers brought back to Winston, arriving here at 1 o'clock. Mr. Ilinshaw says the. river was 5i feet higher than ever known at Shoals, being 15 feet above low water mark. It was 30 feet at Donnaha. At Siloam it was 4 feet over the railroad track and trestle. The damage done to crops is inestimable. ' To Become a Part of Southern. The Washington Star says it is in a position to state that the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company has not passed to the control of Messrs. Phil lip U. Armour, Marshall Field, and Norman Ream of Chicago. There are many more reasons for believing that when the Baltimore and Ohio road gets out of the hands of receivers it will be controlled by J. P Morgan & Co., and practically, if not nominally, incorporated in a great system, of which the Southern will form a part, than that it is to become the proierty of Western men referred to. These statements are made on the authority of a banker, who, with two or three other leading men of Baltimore, rep resents holdings amounting to about $30,000,000 par value in the Baltimore ana Ohio company." What Rev. Mr. Page Says. Rev. Jesse H. Page, who was a res ident of Winston several years ago and pastor of the Methodist Protest ant church here, is on a visit to Dr. P. L. Murphy at Morganton. He preached there Sunday night. In his Sunday morning sermon Mr. Page said that every Christian In the State should work and pray for Anglo Saxon supremacy in North Carolina. He said he had been criticized in some quarters for making this, statement in the pulpit, but he had no apologies to offer, and, by the help of the Lord, would keep on preaching the doctrine of white supremacy to the end. . Attended His Nephew's Funeral. Rev. Dr. F. H. Wood returned on Sept. 21 from Old Trinity, Randolph county. His nephew, Louis C. Wood, who died in Jacksonville Sept. 18, was buried at Trinity on Tuesday. He was a member of the Reidsville company and died at the age of 25 years. He was not married.' Dr. Wood says the body was embalmed and nicely prepared for burial before it left Jacksonville. Protracted Meeting at First Baptist, Rev. Dr. Brown,. the pastor, will be gin a protracted meeting at " the First Baptist church on the Second- Sunday in October.- He - will be assisted by Rev.

The Request for Extension of Time Refused and IT. S. Commissioner) Instructed to Hasten Depart ure of the Spanish Forces. Washington, Sept. 21. The re quest of the Spanish authorities for extension of time to February 23th as a limit for the evacuation of Cuba, has been refused and the U. S. Com missioners have been instructed to use their best efforts to hasten the de parture of the Spanish foraes. EVENING EDUCATIONAL CLASSES. At the Y. 31. C. A. During the Winter Season. Plans are being formulated for evening educational classes at the Y. M. C. A. for its members during the Winter season. This is a very im portant work, which is greatly needed and should be encouraged. The courses of studies will be such as will be of practical lieneiit to the young men who pursue them faithfully. The following are the proposed studies: Arithmetic, advanced; Bookkeeping; Civil and Municipal Government; En glish Grammar and Correspondence; Penmanship, Shorthand, Spanish Language. These are mentioned in order to give some idea of what may be offered. The tuition will be a nom inal fee, to cover the actual cost. Be fore the classes can be offered the As sociation will have to secure compe tent teachers for each department. If other studies than the above men tioned are desired parties interested should confer with the Secretary or Mr. K. E. Gray, chairman of the Kd ucational Committee. It is probable that other studies will be added. That Awful Gun. A story comes from Alleghany county, by the way of the trans-Mon-tano telephone, to the effect that Dee Davis, of Box Mountain fame, had to face one of General Creed Stamper's awful guns a few days aso. It came about in this way: Dee made the re mark that all the insurgents who were opposed to Linney's return to Con gress were a set of d Democrats. General Creed stepped up and gave the expression the lie, whereupon Da vis gave signs of fight. He had no sooner done this than the General had him looking down the barrel of his liest gun, and the report says that Dee fell back in his chair and yielded the occasion to the man with the per suasive eloquence of a dangerous shooting iron, nearly as long as your arm. What Drummond Says. President Harrison I Drummond, of the Drummond Tobacco Company, is quoted as saying regarding the re ported tobacco deal, published in yes terday's Sentinel: "I have denied in every way possi ble that I have given any -'ption on this plant or have agree'" enter any combine, but I have never said that I would not sell if enough money is of fered for. the plant. " The other manu facturers know my position well, and whenever they raise the cash they can have this plant." Have They Joined the Trust? - Detroit, Mich., Sept. 20. It is re ported in tobacco circles here, that the immense tobacco plant of Daniet Scotten & Co., has been consolidated in the Continental Tobacco Company and the American Tobacco Company, which respectively control the plug tobacco and cigarette trade. Oren Scotten, manager of the Company, is at present out of the city, and there fore verification is impossible. The Scotten Company is a large producer of plug and line cut chewing tobacco, and lately added to its plant a cigar ette branch.- Mrs. Bagley In Washington. Mrs. Adelaide Worth .

REPLY TO QUERIES. PRESIDENT SOUTHGATE MAKES A. STATEMENT. Mr. Duko Set Aside for the Benefit r.f Trinitv College 910 Shares Preferred Stock of American Tobacco Company Col- , lege Receives Dividends. The following letter, received on Saturday, from the President of the Board of Trustees of Trinity College, explains itself: Durham, N. C, Sept. 23rd, 1S93. Mr. J. B. Whitaker, Jr., Editor Winston Sentinel, Winston, N. C. Dear Sir: Your letter 20th inst., duly received. You are mistaken in stating that I declined to answer your enquiries. - Having stated your pur pose in seeking the information as indicated in my respects of the 17th inst., I have sought and obtained authority from the Executive Committee of the Board to comply with your request, and now beg to say that in November, 1897, Mr. Washington Duke set aside for the benefit of Trinity College $100, 000 of his property consisting of 910 shares of the preierred stock in the American Tobacco Company by causing them to be placid in the hands of a Trustee, viz.: the Fidelity Bank of Durham, N. C, under the conditions that the investment should be controlled by hitn or his son, Mr. B. N. Duke, dur ing his life time, and at his death by Mr. B. N. Duke, if alive, and after their deaths by the Trustees of Trinity College. The College-now receives only the dividends from this stock and the Trustees could neither sell nor transfer it if they would. 1 am informed that this stock has not been sold and feel satisfied that it will not be unless a change in the investment should commend itself to the business judgment of those who now control it. The College has not owned nor does it now own nor has it sold any stock in the American To bacco Company or W. Duke Sons & Company other than what is above stated. Yours, truly, J. II. SOUTHGATE, President Board Trustees Trinity College. The above statements are made in response to inquiries contained in the following letter : Mr. J. IT. Southgate, Pros. B'd Trus. Trinity College, Durham, N. C. Dear Sir: I beg to acknowledge receipt of your favor of dining to answer my inquiries relative to Trinity College and lobaeeo Co. You say if I will indicate my purpose in seeking the information you will submit my request to the Executive Committee for consideration. In response to this offer and in further pursuit of information to which I think every Methodist is entitled, and to which the general public is entitled under the cir cumstances, I will say My purpose in making the inquiries was to get the facts out of what apiears to lie a muddled situation, it being charged and denied by prominent Metho dists that the College owns stock in the American Tobacco Co., or W. Duke Sons & Co. My purpose, further, was to give the Church and College the benefit of official denial, if my questions had been answered in the negative; and, possibly, to protest against an inconsistent position if it had been shown the College owns stock in a business which has been condemned by our Con ference." I repeat the inquiries made of you and it will be obliging to many Metho dists in this section if your Executive Committee will answer them: 1. Does Trinity College hold or own stock of the American Tobacco Co. or of W. Duke Sons & Co.? 2. Has it ever held or owned such stock ? 3. If it has, and does not now, when wa such stock disposed of? Yours, truly, J. B. "Whitakek, Jr., Editor Sentinel. THE MISSIONARY UNION. Fine Address by the President, Miss Sallio Dickson. Mrs. J. S. Jones welcomed the Wo man's Missionary Union, at the open ing session in Greensboro Thursday, in lieifalf of the ladies of the two Pres byterian churches of that place. Mrs. Hammer, of Lexington, made a grace ful and appropriate response. The Union listened with deep inter est to the address of the President, Miss Sallie Dickson, of Winston. This organized missionary effort of its womanhood is new to Orange Presbytery, and success has thus far crowned every effort of the workers. Miss Dickson proved the need or the work by statistics of similar organic ations in other Presbyteries and the. aid they gave the churches. She urged systematic and persistent effort to secure, not only a working society in every church, but a genuine love for missions in every Christian heart. The entire pajwr bespoke the conse crated spirit of the writer and closed with a most graceful and loyal tribute to the ministry and ruling eldership, under whose authority this work is done, and whose ready sympathies and co-operation have already, a9 ip times past, "helped those women who labor with them in the gospel." Mrs. B. Duke, of Durham, gave an encouraging report as Secretary, and the reports of individual societies fol lowing were equally appreciated. MINERS' TROUBLES. Chicago Agreement Being Violated.
