After a good many months of hard
work by both interests, encouraging
progress has been made toward ad?
justing the indebtedness of the State
of Virginia. The present movement
in that direction promises more than
any previous elTort, for the reason
that it is in tho hands of people in
whom both the creditors and the
debtors have absolute confidence.
The first step is to mass the bond?

agreement giving to the bondholders'
committee the power to represent
them, but with the privilege to the
bondholders to ratify any proposition
which shall have been found satisfac?
tory to an advisory board appointed
for that purpose or to withdraw their
bonds. There is thus interposed be?
tween the bondholders1 committee on
the one hand and the commission
appointed by the State of Virginia on
the other hand, a body of gentlemen
as an advisory board, whose names
and reputations are such that their
recommendations are likely to have
great weight with the bondholders.

An idea of the work that has hi en
undertaken may be obtained by the
following resume of the Virginias' in?
debtedness by a member of the it, v.
comniittee. He -aid yesterday:
"When the war ended in 1805 the
State of Virginia found itself encum?
bered with a debt, principal and inter?
est, amounting to about $40,000,000.
with one-third of her territory cut olf
by the creation of West Virginia, and
one-half of the taxable values upon
which the debt was created destroyed.
She attempted to fund the debt in
1871 bv cutting off one-third of the
$45,000,000 as West Virginia's portion,
giving a certificate therefor to tin
bondholders, payable upon a settle
ment with the new Slate.
"For the residue, principal and
interest, she gave a new 6 per cent,
bond, with tax-receivable coupons at?
tached thereto. This issue was equiva?
lent to forcing the State into bank
ruptcy, if such a thing were possible,
for the tax-receivable coupons annu?
ally maturing exceeded the revenues
of the State by $1.100,000. As a mat?
ter of course, this adjustment of the
debt was a failure.
"During this whole period,from 1800
to 1800, the State has paid in prin?
cipal and interest, upon this old debt,
about $23,000,000. but there remains
outstanding in the hands of creditors
who have not accepted the terms of
settlement proposed in 1882 about
$27,500,000, of which about $20.000,000
is principal and $7,500,000 is interest.
This is the amount we propose to deal
with. Our work has been well viewed
in London, and our intercourse with
the representatives of the State has
convinced us that she is as desirous of
re-establishing her credit as the bond?
holders are of adjusting their claims
upon an equitable basis."

Yesterday morning Herbert, the
five-year-old son of Mr. A. J. Miller,
while in the planing mill of Messrs.
Koiner & Bush, fell from a pile of
lumber, alighting near a buzz saw,
which struck his leg and severed the
flesh to the bone just below the knee.
He was taken to the ollice of Drs.
Koiner and Gale where his wound
was dressed, and thence conducted to
his home in the western part of the
city, where he was resting quietly at
last accounts. The bone was not in?
jured, and consequently while the
wound is a very painful one, it is not
regarded as necessarily dangerous.

Roanoke's greatest needs, and are (Iis
posed to lend all the aid and encour?

requisite land as a subscription, but
that party has not come forward vet.
At any rate it will be established in a
healthy locality, where it will .have
the benefit of plenty of pure, fresh
? From what source do you expect
to obtain its subsistance?"
"The city will be expected to make
a liberal annual appropriation, be?
sides all of the churches and some of
the secret societies will do something
in that line. Those who go there and
are able will pay for the attendance
they receive, and by these means I
think there will be no trouble as to its
subsistence. All we want to do now
is to get the building and grounds,
and the balance will be easy."
