That was all thtat he askedtfor deth.
pending measure. If' there wa orh
in the present Opposition to vots dower
the repeal bill, he asked that that Dower
sahouId be exercised. iIe was ready to
embrace its fate whatever it might be,
and his own with it. iBut he appealetd
to Senators to come toa vote. Action,
he said, had to come, and Senators
might as well know when it would
- come. He had hoped for some indica-.
.tions from the other side, but as yet
$ere was an absence of any Indication
*f a willingness to fIx a time, and that
et evinced to his mind that ho could
fl~aflf) tethe fixing of an~y time by
- n ewarned the op posi tion that pub
opinion would hold them to an ac
counting. Public opinion in Its high
est sense. Senator Voorhees said, is
the most potent factor known beneath I
the stars. In connection with that
public sentiment we come to the great
est, powerfil press of the cour,try. I
speak ot that portion of the prvss
which moves in and is im)ved by the t
atmosphere where truth and jistice -
prevails. I (to not speak of that por- I
tion of the press which deals in miasin
e med.acity and poisons everythtncr
about it. I speak with the utmost r"
spect for th" great organs of public
opinioi, (not in tear or In llattery, but.
as an agent in hum1nWI affairs.)
Now I appeal once more to the Se-m
tors who are in charge of the opposi'
tion to this mnsitre-a mea-mre whicOl
is supported by tho piblic opinion of
tho I'nited States imnt siipiorted by i
majorit.y of this boily. ILvery latieide

TERRIBLE RIOT IN ROANOKE.
The Law Maintained at a Fearful Cost of
Life and Limb.
ROANOKE, VA., September 20.-One
of the most dastardly crimes in the his
tory of the city occurred at about 10
o'clock this morning. Mrs. l1enry S.
Bishop, aged about 50 years, and a re
spectable white woman, from Clover
dale, eight miles from this city, was en
ticed by a negro named Thomas Smith
from the market, where she had come
to sell produce, into an empty saloon
b:isement, where he beat her into in
sensibility and robbed her of her pock
otbook containing less than two dol
lars. The woman was left for dead
but managed to revive a few minutes
later and crawled up to the street.,
whore she told her story.
The fiend had in the meantime es
caped, but was detected from the do.
scription given by Mrs. Bishop board
ing an outgoing train. A colored man
Junped on the car and grabbing the
crimimia I the two fell to the ground.
A crowd immediately surrounded the
priscner and threatR of lynching were
loud and frequent. Detective Captain
W. W. Baldwin eeized the man and,
holding the crowd at b-Ay with his re
volvor, started on horseback with the
frightened negro behind him. Herode
to the saloon where the wounded wo
man was removed, and she positively
identiied him. lie was then taken to
A crowd gathered around the jtil,
and kept increasing as night ap
proached. At 5 o'clock the Roanoke
Light Inufantry marched to the jail by
order of Mayor Trout. Guards were
posted and the streets in the immedi
ate vicinity were cleared. About, dark
the crowd was increased by a hundred
men from the vicinity of the woman's
home headed by Mrs. Bishop's son, a
fireman on the Norfolk and Western
Itailroad. At 8 o'clock a portion of the
mob battered at a side door of the jail,
where the militia and Mayor Trout had
retired. The shooting was commenced
by tie mob, and the mayor was shot in
The militia were then ordered to re
turn the fire, and a volley from about
twenty-five rifles was poured into the
mob. It is thought tnat about live
men were killed by this fire and as
many more wounded, some of them fa.
tally. During the excitement caused
by the volley the negro was taken from
the jail by an oflicer and secreted. The
dead mnd wounded were remove.1 to a1
druq store and to the ollicas of near by
physicians. The militia were then dis
pvrsed and left the scene as quietly as

I'lie difficulty attending the attemlpt. to s
start a olind tiger in thii State or even it
to set up a "dried tuLt'' store is illus- p
trated by an incident that occurred in p
this city ye8terday. .
At the Itichmond and I%tviflo It il- d

looking barrels such as dried fridt and c
oftentimes vegetables are shipped in.
One of these innocent lookinr barrels
was consizued to 1t. F. Clark and the
other to John S'.uirt Columbia. They
rve no in,lications of the "evil that y
lurked within.'' Another package that ei

were all seized by one of the deputy s
