THE GREAT BOOM! IN THE RICH RE
GION WHICH IT PENETRATES.
Towns Springing Up ns lly Single. With
Mncnlflccnt Opportunities for Making
Fortunes in Ronl Estate, Manufactur
ing, nnd Mining The New Hlg llonnnzni
The advantages of the South ns ft field for
manufactures and other commercial enterprises
are even yet not fully understood. Every day
they are being demonstrated more clearly by
the wonderful success of those who havo in
vested their capital In that section since the In
auguration of the recent boom, and It cannot be
long before the great tide of emigration from
the North and East, which has been running
"Westward for years, will be fully turned toward
the fertile valleys and mineral-laden hills of the
ChaunccyM. Depewin addressing the Alumni
Association of Yale College a few mouths ago,
summed up the result of his observations on his
trip through the South In these words:
"The net result of this visit to the South, to my
mind, is just this that the South is the bonanza
or the future. We have developed all the great
and sudden opportunities for wealth, or most of
them, in our Northwestern States nnd on the Pa
cific Slope, But here Is a vast country with the
best climate In the world, with conditions of
health which are absolutely unparalleled, with
vns. forests untouched, with enormous veins of
coal and iron, which yet havo not known any
thing beyond their original conditions; with soil
that, under proper cultivation, for little capital
can support a tremendous population; with con
ditions in the atmosphere for comfortable living
winter and summer which exist nowhere else in
the country; aud that is to be the attraction for
the young men who go out from the farms to
seek settlement, and not by immigration from
nbroad fori do notthinkthey will go that way
but by the internal immigration from our own
country it is to become in time as prosperous as
any other section of the country and ns prosper
ous by a purely American development."
Some of the most desirable manufacturing
sites are to bo found In the States of Virginia
and "West Virginia. Throughout these States
are locations suited in everything for the manu
facture of wagons, 6toves, agricultural imple
ments, furniture, or for foundries, machine
shops, rolling mills, iron pipe works, horse
shoes, glass and nail works, cotton or woollen
mills, and tanneries.
ilie oriolk and A estern Railroad, running
rom Norfolk to Bristol, Tenn., Norton, Va.,
and Ironton, Ohio, brines this whole section
Into direct communication with, the markets of
the world, and there is no reason whv It -should
not now be fully developed. As an instance of
the rapid development frequently to be seen In
the South may be mentioned the town of Salem,
Va. On the 2d of October last the Salem Im
provement Company was organized with an au
thorized capital of $1,000,000. Of this amount
there was only issued $300,000, which was all
taken within a month, and at once sold at a
premium. The company purchased 900 acres of
land adjoining the town, laid out streets, and
placed the first lots on sale December 11. Ten
days from the beginning of the sale and onlv
eleven weeks from the organization of the com
pany more than 700 lots had been sold for more
than $300,000, and the board of directors de
clared a dividend of SO per cent, on the capital
stock, and ordered the same to be credited to
the stockholders in payment of the SO per cent,
still due on the stock, only two assessments of
10 per cent, each having been culled and paid
in. This action makes the stock fully paid up,
and it is now selling at a high premium on
the par value, which is $10 a share. The
foundations of the first iron furnace have been
laid; an extensive steam tannerv has been se
cured; twolnrge brick works capacity, 100,000
a day aud a manufactory of tile piping have
been located; the Camden Iron Works and
other existing Industries are Increasing their ca
pacity; plans arc on foot for a rolling mill, a
"Bee Hive" power plant, and an electric light
plant; various large enterprises are In prospect,
including one that will employ two hundred
women; a new hotel, costing $50,000, is to be
erected during the year 1S90, aud hundreds of
business-houses and residences will he built at
an early day.
Another example of the remarkable rapidity
of growth in this section is Roanoke, at present
a thriving city of 20,000 inhabitants. Eight or
nine years ago this site was known as "Big
Lick," and it6 population was probably not over
six hundred, it is situated at the junction of
the Norfolk and Western and the Shenandoah
Valley Railroads, and is one of the most beau
tifully located cities in the whole of Virginia.
A large proportion of the male population is
employed in the machine works, the three iron
furnaces, rolling mill, bridge works, and car
riage works. The canning factory, planing
mills, tobacco works, ice factory, brick works,
and numerous other minor interests, with the
endless building und grading operations, afford
plenty of work for all comers. Costly churches
of the several leading denominations and sub
stantial school buildings adorn many street
corners. Hollln's Female Institute and the
newly finished Alleghany Institute are both lo
cated here. The water supply is of unusual ex
cellence, aud is furnished by a spring llowing
over five million gallons per day. Three daily
newspapers are published here, nnd numerous
other evidences of the lasting prosperity of the
city are to be seen.
Radford is a thriving town situated in Mont
gomery County, forty-two miles bevond Roa
noak. It is located upon Now River, at the
point of the junction of the New River Division
of the Norfolk and Western Railroad aud its
main line. All of the land immediately along
the river front not occupied by the railroad
tracks has been held in reserve for lrou-making
industries, saw-mills, and cauncrie6. Very lib
eral Inducements are offered corporations de
siring to locate. Extensive stone and brick
works are already in operation. An iron fur
nace is to be erected, also cast-iron pipe works
aud a plate rolling mill. Extensive sidings
have been provided at this point for the hand
ling of coal, chiefly the Brush .Mountain semi
anthracite. Two concerns make sashes, blinds,
and doors. Radford has the additional advan
tage of being the headquarters of tho N. it W.
Railroad for tho Western Division, It forms
the outlet of the coal, iron, zinc, timber, and
cattle of Southwest Virgiiila, and is tho centre
of a rich agricultural and grazing section. The
climate is healthful and invigorating, the eleva
tion being 1,810 to 1,8'JO feet. The effective or
useful power of the New River at Rudford varies
with the location from 4,490 to 4,914 horse
power. This town has fine facilities for the
manufacture of furniture, stoves, pulp, leather,
wagous, boots aud 6hoes, iron, tobacco, Hour,
hardware und glass, and for the erection of
mills and factories for the manufacture of vari
ous other commodities.
Pulaski ib situated about fifteen miles beyoud
Radford, and is likewise rich in natural re
sources. The outlook for its becoming a manu
facturing site of some prominence is highly sat
isfactory. Ivauhoe is another town of greut promise, and
factories of various kinds are continually going
up to increase tho reputation which it has
already leceived as a manufacturing town.
Wytheville is tho Mecca of the people of tho
Gulf States during the summer months. New
England capitalists have invested largely at this
polut, and diverse Industries will no doubt bo
established in tho near future, Furniture, car
riage, and wagon fuctorlesaro uowiu operation,
also a machine shop and foundry aud flouring
mill. Cauued goods ot a superior quality aro
packed, and this Industry promises to bo an
Important ono to tho farmers of tho surrounding
couutry. The Virginia Fish Hatchery of tho
United States Fish Commission is located a mllo
or so west of "Wytheville, nnd can be scon from
tho car windows.
Moro than to anything clso tho great pros
perity of this section is duo to the enterprise
nnd accommodating spirit evinced In nil sug
gested Improvements by tho Norfolk and West
ern Railroad. Mr. Charles G. Eddy, tho vico
president of tho road, is known to all tho man
ufacturers and capitalists throughout South
west Virginia, and is accounted very popular
with nil. Tho policy of tho road 6ecms to bo
one of accommodations, and stations and side
tracks nro built wherever the demand for them
Is expressed. No fault whatover can bo found
with tho management of tho road, and its suc
cess promises to bo commensurato with tho de
velopment of thnt portion of tho State. They
extend every aid possible to all capitalists cou
templnting tho erection of manufacturing estab
lishments, and nro equally careful of tho inter
ests of homo-scekcrs.
Tho road has been in active operation for a
period of but eight years, and nt tho close of tho
year 18S9 the total length of completed Hue was
over 038 miles. Tho main lino runs from Nor
folk to Bristol, Va. There arc also branches
from Norfolk to Lambert's Point, Petersburg to
City Point, Glade Spring to yaltville, Radford to
Elkhoru, branches to coal mines, Pulaski to
Ivauhoe, and Bluefleld to Honakcr. At the
close of the year tho company had In stock 195
locomotives, S7 jJasscngcr enrs, 7,8S0 freight,
caboose, nnd other cars. As an ovldenco of tho
amount of business done during tho year the
avcrago mileage of each passenger engine was
14G.5 miles per day as compared with 125 miles
in 1SSS. That of freight engines was 103 miles
per day against S9 mile6 InlSSS. In 1881 tho
road carried a total of 215,901 passengers, In
1SS9 a total of S41,9S0. Tho number of tons of
freight carried In 1SS1 was 53S.102, in 1SS9
3,435,707. In 1SS2 they carried 1,399 tons of
iron ore and 4,735 tons of coal; in 1SS9, 249,374
tons of iron ore and 1,543,900 tons of coal.
Their railroad premises, properties, and fran
chises are valned at $48,793,50S, and their roll
ing stock at $5,544,210, making their total assets
Tho road has a very active agent in "Washing
ton in Mr. Edward J. Lockwood, who has his
office at the corner of Fifteenth street aud tho
Avenue. He has beeu for seme time in the
service of the road and is thoroughly acquainted
with all its workings. He is a business man all

TIN AS A PRECIOUS METALi.
Soloi.tlnts Recognize Itn Purity by What
Thoy Call Its Cry."
From London Society Times.
Tin, which every ono knows, but which, fow
except men of scienco and metallurgists nro ac
quainted with, is ono of tho most precious nnd
most Interesting mctnls. After gold and silver
it is intrinsicnlly tho most precious of thoso in
use. It Is nearly of tho same color aud almost
as bright as silver, but has lc68 resistance and is
less valuable. When warmed by friction It has
a pronounced odor and taste. When it is bent
tho derangement of the crystals of which Its
mass Is formed causes It, without any fracturo
taking place, to emit a peculiar sound which
metallurgists call its cry, and by means of which
an export can nearly determine its degree of
ine places whero tin Is produced nro few,
scattered spnrsclcy over tho surface of tho
globe, and it disguises itself under the form of
a black'ish mineral, which, to tho profano eye,
gives no sigu of the treasure that is wlthiu It.
Ono of the richest as well as most ancient tin
mining districts is iu tho Malay Peninsula, the
Golden Chersonesus of the nncicnts. The use
of tin dates from extreme antiquity, tho most
ancient document in which a mention of it has
been found being a hymn totho llre,;which M.
Oppcrt has trauBlatcd from the Acadian lan
guage, a tongue tho knowledge of which has
been recently revived from cuneiform docu
ments. Tin was designated In them, five thou
sand years ago, as auaku. Tho Biblical text In
tho book of Numbers In which Moses names tin
in tho enumeration of tho metnls Is therefore
compnratively modern, for it Is of one thousand
five hundred years later date than tho hymn to
