SitKO the announcement In the fc'euti
nel of the namewof the teHchers fit the
next session in the high school ono
change has occurred, very unexpectedly
to tho board und to the young lndy cho?
sen. It seems that Miss Jones had made
a conditional promise to teach in tho
same place she occupied last jear, from
which Promise, however, she l\nd the
best reasons to consider herself released;
hut the board, to which she had given
tne promise, insisted upon it so strenu?
ously, and such unpleasnut com plica
tions seemed likelv to arise, that the Sa?
lem board decided lo fill Miss Jones'
place with another. It should bo added,
however, that the Salem board exotor
ates Miss Jones from blame under the
circumstances and sympathizes with her
in her disappointment in not being able
to come to Salem. Ali of the above has j
happened withiu tho last week or so. and
the board, owing to the shortness of time,
has been placed in an embarrassing posl
tion. They have found a worthy substi?
tute for Miss Jones, however, in the per?
son of Miss Lila London, of Hoanoke, and
tho board is under obligations to the
school boaid of Hoanoke city foi giving
up Miss London, who was a valuable
member of the excellent corps of teachers
of our sister city. Miss London'comes
very highly recommended and has passed
a most creditable examination under Su

At the last regular monthly session of
Calvary Baptist Chutcb the deacons rec?
ommended a license tc D. Lncy H?ge
Esq., of this city, to preach. The report
of the deacons dealt at some length with
the question of doctrine as held by the
church and upon which in open session
of the deacons Mr. liege had been e>um
iued. Mauy had supposed that Mr. H?ge
was not exactly orthodox in Iiis views ou
sumo DOints of doctrine as held by his
church, viz., baptism and snnctiilcation.
Upon these points, however, the dea?
cons found him to buhl views strictly in
accord with his church, that baptism
should confoun as near as possible to n
'burial as taught in Romans r.:tt-6. r
As to sancttflcation, be declared. "It
means to cleanse and set apart ^to Clod's
service. Man is cleansed by the blood of
Ctrist from all sin and upon a comp'ete
consecration is baptized with 'he holy
spirit and set apart to the sei vice of
The deacons of the church also dealt
with certain rurcors concerning Mr.
Hoge'sjinnucial standing, and he stated
frankly that much to his regret he had in
the pnst fallen short at this point.but said
I under the blessings of God he did not
owe a cent that he was uot going to pay
just ns soon as he could.
After hearing all these points dis?
cussed, the deacons recommended unani?
mously that a license bo voted, and the
church unanimously ratified the recom?

"From a member of the City Council
who has been identifying himself very

that City Treasurer Thomas is indebted
to the city for $00,000 and that he has

tional Exchange Hanks $150,000.?Yes?

"The above llgures are not fully under
stood. Some people are woudering how
it is that the expert accountant placed
Mr. Thomas' indebtedness at $71,000 ami
it is now $00,000. This can lie explained
by stating that the expert report was up
to duly 1, and the latter covers a period
of two months up to September 1, which
of course has given the treasurer time to
receive other money.
"On the other hand Mr. Callahan re?
ported that the Measurer had $71,000 in I
