HISTORICAL HECOHUS SOLD.
Valuable- Virginia Documents. Dis
posed of to a Junk Dealer.
(."pedal to The Times.)
Rlclunoul, Va., Oct. 3. Much Interest
Ims been aroused here oer (lie reported
tale as junk of valuable literary works be
longing to the State.
Wkcn the Slate library was removed
from (he capital building to the new Stale
library building, about twenty Ions of
eld luok.s and documents were left in
the old quarters, supposed to consist of
leglsLilive reports and worthless pamphlets
und records. After advertising for one
we-ck the committee sold the ntire lot
to a junk dealer for a small price.
Ex-Lll)rarian Foindexter savs that In
the lot vvere documents covering the history
of the .State (hat are invaluable and cannot
be duplicated. It is said that the Junk
dealcrhas been offered a large sum for his
pun base by a Northern man. He left the
city to day, presumably In connection
with the negotiation.
It is thought, the Governor will take steps
to recover the valuable part of the records
llie Difficulty of Securing Safe and
l'rontable Investment for Small
"lic large numlier of people who are pos
tc'sscd of moderate means or savings are
coii-tanlly experiencing the difficulty of
Villaining safo and profitable investment.
The liivestnieut that promises good re
turns or fat divideuds seems alwajs to be
for the capitalist, the already. r't.'i, the
lnriucnli.il 111 financial circles.
Take, for lie-taiice, the most profitable of
all current Investments, cotton manufac
turing. Heretofore small Investors have not
generally been able to share In the large
urofils made by cotton mills. Building
associations nnd savings banks have been
thdr only means of accumulating savings.
By this system, so successfully introduced
In the South, any one who can lay aside
even $2 per month can become a. stock
holder in a cotton null. As funds accumu
late under this system of monthly pay
ments, the contracts for the buildings nrj
Hie machinery can be let without waiting
for the final installments to be paid In.
Before the slock is all paiil up the mill can
belli opera t Ion.
Several vcars ago a few people at Char
lotte, N. C. decided to attempt lo raiEC
capital for building a cotton mill on the
building association plan. The value of
rucli a system as this can readily be seen.
It enables the South to furnish the capital
for building 11B own cotton mills, rather
than wait on outride help. It stimulates
the saving of money and furnishes a safe
und profitable investment for the small
(sums that would otherwise be wasted, but
which, aggregated in this sbape
furnleli capital for the construc
tion of, many mills. The first mill at
Charlotte started on this plan, with a
capital stock of $100,000, proved so
profitable that other companies were or
ganized on the same basis, and It has now
become a regular business, just as the or
ganization of building associations. Among
the successful mills for which capital was
raised on this plan are the Alpha Col ton Mills
of Charlotte, N. C; tho Chewnlla. Mills, of
Eufaula, Alabama; the Stalcsville Cot
Ion Mills, of Statesville, N. C; the
.Ada Cotton Mills, of Charlotte, N. C: the
Highland Park Gingham Mills, of Char
lotte, N. C: the Gaffney Cotton Mills, of
Gaffney. S. C, and a number of others.
Every mill built on this plan lias been re
markably successful, having paid large
dividends to the stockholders. The most
conservative business men and capltalistsof
the Carollnas strongly advocate this sys
tem as of the greatest value to the South.
And at last a similar opportunity Is of
fered to Washington investors. The New
port News Cotton Manufacturing Company
lias been incorporated wltha capital stock of
5500,000, part or -widen will bo shortly

CONVENTION OF 1787.
Important Data Prepared by Dr.
Toner for an Historical I'icturo.
It bas been noted as a remarkable fact
that amid the historic portraiture of tho
country, which in a century of American
painting lias covered so wide a field; Oiero
has never been an historic painting of the
Federal convention of 1787, which framed
the Constitution of the United States.
Dr. Joseph M. Toner, the well known
editor of Washington's diaries, is now fur
nishing material for such a work, to lie exe
cuted, life-size, by one or Hie artists
of the Corcoran Gallery. Dr. Toner says:
"Properly enough, the names and por
traits of the signers of the Declaration of
Independence are knownjo nearly every
person, because they have been treated In
a popular manner by, artists and histo
rians. "The same, and even greater, respect Is
due to the rramers or the Constitution.
The neglect ot the personnel or the Consti
tution, as I apprehend, was accidental
rather than intentional,.nnd is at least un
deserved. An acceptable, picture of the
convention in session plight, witli great
proprli-ty, lie extensively used to the same
end as an object-lesson by" the government
of the United States on .its coins, medals,
greenbacks, letter-heads,i etc
"The picture will represent Washington,
the president of the constitutional conven
tion, sitting in the couijcil, chamK'r at the
State House, In Philadelphia, under the
carved amis of the State of Pennsylvania
upon a high panel in the rear. Franklin, a
man of eighty-three, will occupy an arm
chair at the base. Judge James Wilson
will sit near Madison. Bfifus King, Robert
Morris, Daniel Carroll of Maryland, the
PInclcneys, Luther Martin of Maryland,
Elbridge Gerry, George Mason, and others
will be pictured from original portraits.
"It is expected that the picture will
adorn either the Supreme Court room of
the Capitol or some other prominent place
at the Capitol or the new national library."

MORTON POST'S TROUBLES
Grand Army Court-Martial Will
Investigate Them To-night.

Shall He Public.
The court-martial or Post Commander
George II. Hoston, of O. I'. Morton Post,
Cm. A. It , because or troubles with orricers
of the Department or the Potomac, willtjke
place to-nlglit tit headquarters.
Tho court-martial was originally set for
Sepu inherits, out at that time Commander
lloslon was in Norfolk at a Grand Army
reunion, and the trial was postponed until
The charges against IJoston, as prepared
by Department Commander Marion J.An
dersi)ii,are that thepost commander viola ted
tho laws governing the Grand Anil) when
Department, Commander Marlon T. Ander
son and AssLstant Insiiector-General Will
lam P. Saville visited Post Commander
Itoston's pot and the former remonstrated
with Huston for his conduct and were told
to do their worst.
The bone or contention that Is believed
tohave been the causeof.ill tlie trouble late
ly cxiierlenced in Oliver P. Slorton Post is
that the per capita taxdueonjuly 1 has not
been paid. Tills difficulty In the post re
sulted in very few members going to Louis
ville? only about eleven taking the trip. As
this Is not tho first time the per capita tax
has not been paid promptly the department
has deterndned to investigate the matter.
Post Commander Hoston is not the least
cast down by the overhanging clouds of a
court-martial. To a Times reporter to-day
he said that he was ready for the fight.
"It Is not the first time," said he, "that I
have been tried, and I have no fears or the
result. I have never handled one cent of
the money, ami will prove my innocence
when I am arraigned. I have engaged Mr.
Dan Grosvcner. of Post No. 8, and William
A. Cook, as my counsel, and they will ably
defend every charge that is brought up
"Mr. Anderson wants the court-martial
held behind closed doors, but I will insist
on allowing every recognized member of
the Grand Army to be present. It is a mat
ter in winch all are Interested, and I think
that they should be present to hear what
will be said."

where he will deliver an address on mis
sions Saturday next before the general

Before returning to Washington they will

The Cart Horses and tho Saddle Home.
"Two cart horses, a gelding and a mare,
were brought to Samoa and out In the same
field with a saddle horse to run free on
the island.. They were rather afraid to go
near him, for they saw he was a saddle
horse and supposed he would not speak to
them. Now, the saddle horse, had never
seen creatures so bIg'These must be great
chiefs,' thought he and he approached
them civilly. "Lady and gentleman,' said
he, 'I understand you are from the col
onies. I offer you my affectionate compli
ments and make you heartily welcome to
"The colonials looked at him askance and
consulted with each other.
" 'Who can he be?' said the gelding.
" 'He seems suspiciously civil,' said the
" 'I do not think he can be much account,'
said the gelding.
" 'Depend upon It be Is only a Kanaka,'
said the mare.
"Then they turned to him.
" 'Go to the devlll' said the gelding.
" 'I wonder at your impudence, speak
ing to persons of our quality!' cried the
"The saddle horse went away by himself.
" "I was right, said he; 'they are great
chiefs.' " R. L. Stevenson.
