Complimentary notices of Roanoke
and the great South west section of
Virginia continue to come to the
Times from the Massachusetts editors.
(They are, through their respective
journals, giving us such an advertise?
ment as we never hail before, and if
they should ever visit this section
again they may be sure of a welcome
such as is only given to old and tried
friends.
Below is given a few extracts from the

perhaps thirty years ago, but which
lias proved too often of late year- a
deceptive rallying cry. gave away to
the quiet as alluring ami far more de?
sirable one of "Go South young man/'
The time was when our young men
could go to almost any portion of s he
western states ami settle and growing
up with the country could achieve
wealth and perhaps lame. As a gen?
eral axiom that time has passed.
Unless a young man has an excellent
counselor knows precisely where to
go. the west will prove as delusive to
him as a lottery and he will find him
self as effectually stranded financially
and politically as he would have found
himself at home, with the additional
disadvantage of being among
strangers whose interest in him urhis
future is scarcely sufficient to keep
him from becoming a pauper. A
somewhat rapid, but fairly carefully
arranged tour along the line of the
Norfolk and Western railroad in which
questions were freely asked ami as
freely answered, convinces us that

brilliant prospects to an ambitious,
pushing young man especially if he

A KEG OF BEER,
HOW IT IS MADE AND WHA
COMPOSED OF.
The city of Roanoke, essentially an
iron city, eight years ago was a mere
village of less than a thousand inhab?
itants; today a seemingly fair estimate
puts the population at about 15,000,
while the sanguine ones claim thai ii
numbers 22,000. Salem has. ir is
claimed,added 50 percent, to it - pop?
ulation within less than a year. The
other towns inake similar claims and
apparently the claims aie well sup?
ported. Improvement coinpauies
stand ready to manifest their faith by
their works and will o'Ter every pos?
sible encouragement to new indus
tries. The lower grade of labor is not
much, if any better paid a: lie-North,
hut skilled labor commands excellenl
waives and the man of sagacity and
good habits stands a show of rapidly
acquiring a competence. Houses are
springing up with phenomenal rapid?
ity and the more rapid growth is only
held in check by the lack of carpen?
ters and other skilled labor. Our ad?
vice would be to young, active, push?
ing capable men to go to one of these
rapidly developing towns and grow
up with it. They are not booming
Southwestern Virginia in the way
many of the towns further south
are being boomed, but the
work is being put in in a
more quiet and healthy manner.
To young men desiring* to benefit
themselves and who do not feel able
to visit these places for themselves to
spy out the country as the men of Es
chol did in the olden time we would
say ^correspond with some of the
prominent men and sea what chances
are offered you. To such we will
gladly give any infer uaf ion in our
possession. Hero see:as to us to be
the safety valve to let off the surplus
steam of skilled labor at the north
which is rapidly being crowded to
the wall and is meeting with the re?
duction in wages inseperable from
the presence of an over supply. To
us the results of a personal though
hurried observation convince us that
for the next few years this section will
present unparalleled opportunities,
and those who are earliest on
the ground will pluck the ripest and
richest fruit. In the matter of living
we were surprised at the reasonable
prices charged for various articles.
There seems tobe but little difference
between the cost of many everyday
articles there and the same kind of
goods in New England, and if those
we sampled are indicative of prices
in general, a man can live fully as
cheaply there as here. To our ambi?
tious young men therefore who are
contemplating achange,an<! to whom
the west seems from this distance to
offer so many allurements, we would
say look to the southland. For the
next decade her development bids
fair to equal that of the West in its
palmiest time and the man of sagac?
ity and energy will unquestionably
find here a highway to success.

Yesterday morning at 5:40o'clock as

in confusion on the bank.

Shorter Honrs lor Summer.
The following from the Philadelphia
Press is banded in at the ollice with
the request that we refer the item to
tiie consideration of the Norfolk and
Western officials:
The officials of the Reading Com?
pany have made a change in the
hours of the clerks at the general
offcees during the summer months.
The hours this summer will be from
S:o0 a. m. to 4 p. in., and from 8:130 a.
in. to 2 p. m. on Saturdays. The hours
were formerly from 9 a. m. to 5 p. nt,
and from '?) a. in. to U p. m. on Satur?
days.
road avenue, past the cool shades ol
Woodland Park, with its loafer
lying prone under the trees, a.id in
; wo or three minutes you find yoursell
standing in front of the office which i
situated directly on the line of the
road.
Behind the rail you will be apt to
lind President Henuaim Uruc^r and
more than apt to see Charles F. Maud
ler. the efficient secretary of the com?
pany. Both have had long experience
in tin- business and know it thor
oughly.
In the brewery proper Louis A
Scholz, the general manager, reign;
supreme and what he doesn't know
about brewing wouldn't take many
columns in the Times to tell. With
him as a guide the reporter traced
the making of a glass of beer from the
time it ceased to be malt hops ami
pure cold water until it became the
exhilirating drink that is daily quaf?
fed by thousands.
In the second story of the building
is an immense copper cauldron, hold?
ing over a hundred barrels, and here
the malt after being ground is mixed
with water and boiled until the
mass has reached the required tem?
perature. Then the hops are mixed
iu and a white foam spreads itself
over the surface. The boiling mass
has to be carefully watched
and tended or it may run over.
Much depends on the quality of
the hops and the chemical properties
of the water. The stronger the beer
the more hops is required. The boil?
ing is continued until the hops have
yielded their bitter and arimatre
principles, and then the liquor is
drawn off, cooled by being run over
pipes filled with cold air, and finds its
way to the huge vats in the cellar.
?"Button up your coat," said Maua?
ger Scholz, as the reporter prepared
to follow him into the cellar. And
the warning was not without cause,
forgoing out of the warm June at?
mosphere into tin- cellers, was like
leaving the Everglades of Florida'for
the shadows of Greenland's icy moun?
tains.
In the cellers were great vats filled
with beer in process of fermentation.
Thick cauliflower like heads of froth
Liad formed in the beer. The process
of cooling is a most important one,for
if it is not done with great rapidity,
the sugar in the beer becomes partly
converted into aortic and the
risk of the product made uu
p leas ant. Sixty days, at least, must
elapse before the beer is ready for the
market, and it is better if kept longer.
About the first of August, the com?
pany will put its product on the
market, and already they have assur?
ances of a very large patronage.
They will make their own ice and
will use about five tons a day. The
machines are now being completed.
They will also have their owu electric
light plant, and a two-horse power
engine is now being put in. This will
also furnish power for the bottling
works.
Just across road Ironi the brewery a
large house, with porches and gables
and a picturesque air.is going up. This
is to be called the Wayside Inn, and
being immediately on .:ne of the most
popular drivt s about il.e environs of
Roanoke, it will be a great conven?
ience to the traveler who likes a
luncheonand a good fresh glass of
beer.

Wythxvii.lk, Va., June 19,1890.
George Early, Bird Woods, Nannie
Woods and William Brown were to?
day sentenced to death for the sec?
ond time, the court of appeals affirm?
ing the decission of the lower court.
Briefly their history is this: During
the campaign last fall General Malione
went to Rocky Mount to speak. His
friends tried to secure a tobacco ware?
house for him to speak in, but as they
all belonged to democrats they failed*.
Soon after Lieutenant-Governor Mas
sie went to Rocky Mount, and being a
democrat the largest warehouse in
the town was thrown open to him.
That night the warehouse, together
with a large portion of the town, wa.-i
burned. I t. was soou proved that
it was the work of an incendiary, and
the four negroes, who are republicans,
were arrested, tried and convicted al
the December term at the Franklin
county court for arson. An appeal
was taken, but the Supreme court
today affirmed the decision of thel
lower court. So i he negroes will now j
hang.
The Supreme conrt adjourned to
day after the shortest session in its
history.
the new land assessment.
Richmond, Va., June 20.?The u? v
land assessments are rapidly coming
into the office nf iheAuriiror of Pubik
Accounts. It will probably not be s<
reat while before that official can tell
just what willbe the result of this OS
sessroent. It is said by those in a posl-1
tiontohave definite information or,!
the subject that the cltfes,' as well at
iome of the Southwestern and valley
sounties, where so many new and im?
portant industries have sprung up.
I,' as compared with the last assess- j
tneut, show large increase in land val-|
ues. The falling off, where it occurs,
will be in the strictly agricultural dis?
tricts. These latter may or may not

RICHMOND TERMINAL.
Sensi-Annnnl Dividend Declared?Al?

The New York Times of yesterday
bad the following which confirms the
imposition of the Dispatch that the
Terminal people were not influential
but interested in the Baltimore and
Ohio deal:
The directors of the Richmond Ter?
minal Company met In this city yes?
terday and after declaring the usual
semi-annual dividend they em?
powered President Inman to assume
ontrol, in the Company s name, of
such portion of the syndicate's recent
purchase of Baltimore and Ohio stock
as has heen allotted to the Richmond
Terminal people. It is said that the
aforesaid portion is 12,000 shares. The
syndicate bought 47,000 shares and the
Garrett party holds about 50,000
shares. Thus these two interests have
a large working majority of the capi?
tal stock.?Richmond Dispatch.

Rumors are rife all ..bout town in
regard to the purchase by the Roan?
oke and Southern railroad of prop?
erty on which to build their freight
depot and yard.
None of these rumors have as yet.
however,been traced to headquarters,
and people with property to seil, as
well as those wishing to buy, are yet
kept on the anxious bench.
The latent report Is that the Vir-1
ginia and North Carolina Construc?
tion Company, who are to build the
road, have purchased from the Roan?
oke Manufacturing Company, two
acres of land known as the Kefauver
property. The land lies just north?
west of the freight depot, is in a cen?
tral location, and shrewd prophets
declare it to be the place.
There is another r tnior afloat to the
effect that the company have pui
chased the square of ground bounded
by Norfolk avenue, Campbell, Ran?
dolph and Hoiliday streets. It is said
that the price to be paid is $40,000
and the land is to be used for terminal
purposes, offices aud depot buildings.
After an investigation it was dis?
covered that there was no foundation
for this rumor. Part of the land has
been sold but to other parties.
