"Bless mc,ain't it pleasnut.
Riding on n rail."
Until within recent years, the ex?
pression which heads the column, was
not heard in the Southern States, . x
cept on rare occasions. (>f course the
larger cities 'were connected by rail?
roads,and the railroads were, perhaps,
as numerous as the development,
which had then takenplace.demanded
ormade possible. The principal means
of travel was by horses and carriages,
and steamboats, the proverbial
Southern gentlemen with his
horse and saddlebags, is still
being commonly spoken of, especially
in the North, where the South
looked upon yet as the slow -din
section it was until a few years ago
The South by her location, wusalwav
naturally a great agricultural distrii
of the country, and it took years am
years for the residents of that section
ro discover that they had coal, iron
and timber more plentiful than an
other section of the world. Hut wheii
the discovery was once made, and tin
fact was thoroughly demonstrated, it
did not take lout; tor what idleSoutl
eru capital there was, to lind invest
ment in these fields and fur .Northern
capital, and even foreign capital, to
be attracted to them. Tin? extent ol
this development is nowhere mor
plainly visible than in the incurred
tuuount of railroad building whic
has been goi nf,' (min the South evt
?unco the war, and particularly in tin
last few year?.
To give some idea of the extent am
rate at which the ten Southern States
i map of which is included in the
leading of the Tradesman, have Keen
leveloping recently, a comparison of
the amount of their railroad buildin
.n the years 1884 and 1880, is interest
In 1884,there were six new railroad
JUiltinthe State of .North Carolina,
he aggregate mileage being 171.1
uiles. In 1889, in the same Star
ourteeu new railroads were built,a;
rregating259.5 miles. In 1884, South
/'arolina built two new railroads, ag
jregating 25.7 miles; in 18S9, thre
?ailroads, aggregating43.5miles. In
884, Georgia built seven new ra
?oads, aggregating 88 miles; in 1889,
seventeen new railroads, aggregating
128.9 miles. Florida in 1884, built six
icw railroads, aggregating 1S2.Cmiles,
ind in 1889, twelve new railroad.-, ag?
gregating 183.3 miles. In 1884, Ala?
bama built seven new railroads,
iggregating ?jij.2 mile, and in 1889,
welve new railroads, aggregat
ng 142 miles. In is.si Mississippi
milt three new railroads, aggregating
S28.2 miles, and in 1889 she built four
iew railroads, aggregating 1C9 miles,
n 1884 Louisiana built four new rail
oade, aggregating 112 miles, and in
880 nine new railroads, aggregating
22 miles, in 1^84 Tennessee built
inly four railroads, aggregating '."?
niles; in 1880 she built ten new roads,
iggregating 184.8 miles. Arkansas
milt four roads-, aggregating
niles iu I884,and in 18S9 live new rail
oads, aggregating 02 miles. In 1884
Lexas built three railroads with a
otalmileage of 113 miles; in 1889 she
)uilt ten railroads, aggregating 282.7
This statement shows that in 1884
he ten Southern States built forty
ix new railroads and an aggregate of
,108.0 miles, and in 1SS? the same
States built ninety-six new railroads,
iggregating 1,777.7 miles. The in
:rease in the number of new roads is
nore than 100 per ceut., and the in
jrease in the number of miles built is
nore than fifty per cent.
In the year 1SS9 no two other States
n the Union built as much railroad
is did the ten Southern States. Pur
;her, no State iu the Union, unless it
ie the new State of Washington,
ihows as great an increase for 1889
)ver 188-1. The State of Georgia iu
;889 built more miles of railroad than
uiy other State in the Union, except
Washington. Another thing to be
(leaned from the foregoing figures, is
:he fact that the Southern States
lave divided their railroad building
or the year 1889 among more differ?
ent roads than have any of the other
States. This shows that the great in
;rease of mileage does not come from
auilding of any one solid trunk line
mrough the section, but from the ex?
tension pf roads already in existence
i few miles further here and here, to
reach some new and probably here?
tofore undeveloped resource.?The

He 1m One of America's Peculiar Pro?
The town builder is a character that
is without doubt, destined to find a
place in American future. He is a
product of this country and is pecu?
liarly American. Rice is well known
in Roanoke and got many of his les?
sons in town building right here in
our midst. The following sketch
from the Atlanta Journal, will, there?
fore be of interest, to his friends.
Talk about a Napoleonic boomer,''
said Mr. Haralspn, "but I never heard
of oiii" yel who could come up to Rice.
He ha.- built sixteen young cities, and
nobody knows where he will stop. He
'ooks around and sees a place where
there ought to be a town or city. He
has plenty of money of his own, and
is backed by almost countless millions.
He bays all the laud around the
proposed town, and goes to work.
The first i hing he does is to organize
a national bank, and that is some?
times done before there is a single
house on the site of the proposed
town. Then he organizes various
manufacturing establishments. Mil
lions of dollars are speut in the brief?
est imaginable time, and woods and
fields are transformed into thriving
and prosperous cities. Fourteen
months "go he started fort Payne in
Alabama. There xvus nothing tb
except rwo or three small wooden
store-, lie bought all the land Ik.
could, but the fellows who owned the
little .-lores caught on and refused to
sell, so he built his town three
quarters of a mile above them in the
valley, .ind left them alone in the out
skirts. Fourteen monts ago there wa
practically no Fort Payne. Now the
population is about 8,000 Rice's
1 t is! town is Cardiff. He isVpendin
$80,000 there on streets. He has one
avenue two miles long, a hundred feet
wide and la id iu asphalt. Not long ago
the place was old lields. At a sale a few
days ago, property brought $278 per
front fo'ot. 1 saw 104 sleeping cars stand
tag on tie-sidetrack that had brought
people there to buy at the sale. The
people were wild. It is said that one
deaf man got excited and bid against
himself four or five times, he was so
tnxious to get a particular lot- Rice's
town- always have the latest im?
provements and conveniences for
dties,maguificent buildings and man?
ufacturing establishments with un?
limited capital. Rice has built six?
teen tow us, and has a magnificent
residence in each town, which, of
?our-.-, he does not occupy, for In
ways has a new town on hand.

He was white and frothed at the

when he reached the Hotel Felix he
was ontbSudead run, and everybody
was getting out of his way as fast as
their legs could carry them.

not fall. < hi t lie contrary he increased
gait and with the blood streaming
from the wound made by the bullet,
lemade a picture frightful enough to

Ware is a prettygood runner, lint the

reached, and then Ware succeeded in

the Norfolk and Western railroad
tunnel near the city, a large cedar
iw log. about three feet in diameter,
oiled from a ear and 'Jell into the
arrow space between the moving
ars and the stone side of the tunnel.
The log was so large that it projected
over the track, knocking two or three
trucks from under the train and bring?
ing it to a stand-still. The conductor
then remembered that the be?
lated passenger train was thun?
dering along close behind and im?
mediately sent back a flagman to stop
which he did just a few hundred
ards west of the tunnel. But for the
oolness and presence of mind of the
freight train crew and their prompt
action there would doubtless have
been a frightful collision and wreck
in the midnight darkness of the tun?

as stopped, and a force of hands got

The Races Yesterday.
In the races at Melrose driving park
yesterday afternoon, Frederick trot?
ted three heats with Little Jim, and
won all of them. The time was 3.05#
3.07., and 3.12.
Fourth of July promises to bo a
most enjoyable day in Roanoke, and
no one will be obliged to leave the
city to have a good time.
There will be races at the driving
park in the afternoon, a game of ball
in the morning, and a parade by the
United Order of American Mechanics.
It is proposed to so arrange the pro?
gram that these events maybe en?
joyed by every one, and the crowd
will not be divided.
The base ball game will take place
early in the morning before Old Sol
begins to get in his work. It has not
yet been decided what clubs will play
but the management promise that
those who attend will see a good
game, and it will be over in good time
so as to allow every one to eat his

It has not yet been decided at what
time the parade of the United Order
will start, but it will probably be im ?

upon, except in the case of Junior

Satisfactory Freieres* or the Flau ol
Action Looking to its Settlement.
.The New York correspondent of the
Baltimore Sun says:
On the authority of one of its mem?
bers the Sun correspondent learns
that the Virginia debt committee
have been in daily conference during
the past week. A number of cable
messages have passed between liere
and the bondholders1 council iu Lon?
don, all of the most satisfactory char?
acter. The main points of the plan
of action have been acceptably
settled, and there remain onlv
a few minor details on which
further instruction from London
is thought to be desirable. The
cables from the other side finishing
the matter are momentarily expected
and then the whole scheme will at
once be made public. This the com?
mittee hope to be aide to do very
early in the coming week. They are
much pleased with the rapid progress
they have made in solving the tangle.
The Virginia debt commission did not
seem able to come to any agreement
with the London people, but the New
Yorkers have won the confidence and
ood will of both, and have thus been
able to smooth the path between the
two jarring principals. When the
Ugcheme of adjustment has been for?
mally agreed upon it will then be sub?
mitted to the arbitration board, of
which ex-President Cleveland is the
head. Mr. Cleveland is much inter?
ested in the scheme, and one of the
last things he did before he left for
his cottage at Marion. Mass., was to
send to the committee to ask if his
absence from New York would
hamper their work in any way, or if
he could do anything to assist them
before he left. All these inciden's
encourage the committee to think
that the long-wished-for settlement of
the Virginia debt is soon to be accom?
plished on a basis that will be'just to j
the bondholders and practical and|
honorable to the State.

Christened by the Enumerator.
Some very funny things turn up in
the building presided over by Mr.
Porter, as might be expected from the
large territory that is being covered
by the census agents. A letter re?
ceived yesterday at the commission
caused large smile-; to run all around
the room among the clerks as its pur?
port leaked out. The letter was
from a census enumerator in Indiana,
addressed to Mr. Porter, and read a6
follows: " Finding a baby without a
name that was born just in time to
hare its nose counted, and the family
undecided as to a name, the matter
was finally left to me, whereupon I
christened him Porter P. Crabb, the
first name after you, and the second
after myself. As the kid is from a
long line of good old Kentucky blood,
I hope the name will not handicap
him in the race of life."
