PR]
FOR A HOSPITAL.
PROPOSITION TO RAISE
$25,000.
OVER $10,000 IS SECURED,
The Movement a Philanthropic One.
Public-Spirited Cltfxens?To Provide
for the Mfk ii Laclclnjr, Let ilio
? iiiin hcs Come to ilio Reacue.
Mr. T. T. Fisbburne, president of
the National Exchange Bank, circu?
lated a subscription list yesterday to
raise $25,000 to erect a hospital for the
city, and succeeded in :i short time in
securiuc over $10 000.
A few months a 'o it was proposed
that the city shout 1 raise the money
by taxation to provide for a hospital
but it was thought liest to vote appro
priations for the Roanoke and South
ern aud overhead bridges, and the
proposition failed to be put into effect
When the mattter was being talkei
about, however, several prominent
citizens stated that, while they
not think it expedient to put the city
to the expense at that time, they
would subscribe individually to such
a fund, and the subscription list
circulated in accordance with that
idea.
The Norfolk and Western railroad
subscribe $5,000; Mrs. Joseph li
Sands, $1,000; T. T. Fisbburne. $1,000
1?. L. Terry, $1,000; J. A. Gambill
$1,000; Dr. Joseph Gale, $1,000. Then
there are other smaller subscription
A number of the most wealthy and
prominent citizens of the town have
not been seen as vet, and it is expect
that at least $20,000 will be raised in
sums of not less than $500. After that
a public meeting or something of tie
kind may be held and smaller sub?
scriptions obtained.
The spirit back of the movement i
a philanthropic as well as a public
spirited one. Roanoke has a lar^e
number of young men who are single,
and who have no homes except the
places at which they board. In case
of sickness they necessarily cannot
receive the treatment and care there
that they need, and it is only last
week that a young man is said to have
died from want of attention.
The amount ought to lie raised
without the last trouble. The busi?
ness men anil others who have been
fortunate in a material sense ought to
contribute liberally to the fund, ami
if there is anything lacking the ladies
and the churches should come tu the
rescue.
Let us have the hospital.

John L. Sullivan was in town just
twenty minutes yesterday. He wasn't
looking for real estate investment,
neither was he thinking of locating.
On tin-contrary he was en route to
Mississippi, where he is to stand trial
for having participated in the Sulli
van-Kilrain contest. His approach?
ing trial didn't seem to worry him a
greal deal, and he looked on the shift?
ing platform crowds with as much
nonchalance as if he were on his way
to a picnic. Since his Southern bat?
tle Sullivan has allowed his mustache,
to grow again and this gives to his
face rather a better expression than
it wears when clean shaven.

Pulaski, Va., June 18,1890.
What in the thunder is the matter |
with our people this morning. Every
business man you meet has his mouth
open from ear to ear and the ladies,
God bless them, are putting on their
sweetest smiles. Your correspondent
tried very hard to lind out the cause |
of this sudden happiness, but only
could learn that Capt. (jeor^e T. Mills
had just returned from Philadelphia
ami Orought good news for the town,
and this was all I could get
from them. I would advise our peo?
ple not to get excited so easy, for I
suppose Captain Mills only broght
the news that some new plants would
be forthcoming, and this don't affect
me a particle, for 1 have known all
the while that it was only a matter
AT THE FESTIVAL.
lee ( ream am! Pretty Girls Under the
Tree* nfthe Parsonage CroitildM.
The festival by the ladies of the
Baptist church last night was a most
enjoyable occasion and the scene io
the parsonage yard was a very brilli
ant one. Long rows of Chinese lant?
erns were strung from tree to tree and
by their dim radiance the pretty girls
of the church moved from table to
table attending to the wants of tin
visitors.
"Why. only ten cents a saucer for
cream!" exclaimed a young man
whose memory of church festivals was
not an unmixed pleasure.
"Yes. only ten cents."said the hand
some girl as she put the plate befor?
him. "We Baptists don't believe in
overcharging. No, 1 don't object to
having another plate, and. bye-the
bye. don't you like cake with yours?"
The festival will be continued to?
night, and those who like to have a
good time should be sure and attend.
Judge George .1. Junkin, of Chris
tiansburg, ate dinner at Marshall's

home from a rather extended tour
through his native Slate of Pennsyl?
vania, and in* is glad once again to re?
turn to his adopted home. Judge
Junkin is a successful man of aflairs
as well as a lawyer of equal ability.
He is connected with a great many
enterprises in Southwest Virginia and
is one of t he great Pennsylvania con?
tingent that is doing so much to de?
velop the resources of the Old Domin?
ion, lb- will go home today and will
perhaps stop a few hours at Carnegie
City where he bus large interests.
During his abs*njce from the State
the judge was elected a trustee of

Cooper, of Coopers, W. Va.. was in
town for.a short-time yesterday. He
too has just returned" from an ex?
tended trip through Pennsylvania,
and he says that nowhere in his trav?
els lias hi-seen so much business ac?
tivity a- is displayed herein Roanoke.
?The citizens of the place can hardly
ippreciate the immense strides the
own is mtiking,'1 said Mr. Cooper to
rilETlMKSman. "But a man like
myself, who visits the city occasion
illy, can see an improvement every
time he comes. There is no place like
Roanoke for progress."
The reason that so many people in
Roanoke have not seen the census
enumerator is that he hasn't been able
to get over his territory, ami his term j 0f time with Pulaski, for her resources

active, can do that well.
Mr. J. E. Tennyson, one of the
enumerators in the First ward, in
speaking last night of the census,
said:
"The work is very much delayed In?
tim large area of territory we have to
cover and the amount of time it re?
quires to get the lady of the house to

the questions. 1 have met with no

The Lynchburg Advance says of t he
census in that city:
The work of taking the census ol
Lynchburg has been completed and
the books of the enumerators are now
in the hands of Superintendent Mc?
Laughlin.
Whilst the census enumerators are
not allowed to disclose any of their
figures, it is rumored that the enum?
erators have found and recorded be

burg hasn't a soul less than 25,060.
Many have been, we fear, over
looked, not from any fault of the
enumerators?for they get paid so
much per head?but because the sys?
tem is a bad one, and we fear Lynch
burg has suffered in consequence of
that system.
But Lynchbnrg will be no excep?
tion, for thousands have been missed

it is safe to say if the rumor is correct ,
that three or four thousand have been
unintentionally missed by the Lynch"

There are few cities in the country
that will not be more or less disap?
pointed in the result of the census as
regards their respective populations.
In almost every case the figures will
fall behind what has been anticipated
and boasted of before hand by enthu?
siastic citizens. In other words, most
of the cities have placed their ligures
of population too high for the hard
facts of the actual result. Lynchburg
will not escape such sore disappoint?
ment; neither will Richmond, Dan?
ville, Roanoke and other cities, ac?
cording to present appoanmce of re?
turns. OurJ population does not
promise to be much the rise of 20,000,
though it has been placed by some at
from 25.000 to 30,000. But this fact,
if it shall be a fact, should be a matter
of no despondency or discouragement,
for new population is llowiugin every?

It Will Probably Meet Soxt Weeh at
Old Point.
It is probable the Virginia Demo- I
cratic State Central Committee will
meet about the 1st of July. At this
meeting the committee will consider
the matters connected with the ap- j
proaching congressional campa'gn.
and whether it shall be opened at j
once or deferred until later on. It may
be that this meeting of the committee I
will be held at Old Point.- The State |
Bar Association will hold its annual
meeting at that place on July 1, and I
it has been suggested that the" Demo?
cratic committee might assemble |
there on the same day. This, though,
is yet to be considered and deter?
mined. Major J. Taylor Ellyson, of I
Richmond, is prominently spoken of
for the chairmanship of the commit- |
tee. While he is not, in the ordinary
sense of the term, a candidate for the)
position, if it comes to him gracefully
it is not believed he will decline the
honor.
Some of tiie officials are inclined to
believe thatthe negotiations of the|
Oicott committee lookingto a settle
?lent of the State debt will be suc?
cessful. < )f course it is conceded that I
all depends upon the basis of the plan
to be formulated by that committee
and commended by the board of ar-1
bitration, of which ex-Presidenl
Cleveland is a member Some regret!
is been expressed here that a prom- j
inent Southern man was not included
in the membership of that board.
Suc.li a man. it is thought by those
who have alluded to this subject,
would better understand and appro
ciate the financial difficulties in this |
State than those from any other sec?
tion.
