Building operations were never so
active in tbiu city as they are today.
Contractors find it difficult work to
have their orders for material fillob,
and on this account progress on a
great munyof the buildings has been
The half dozen brick yards of the
city are doing an immense busiues:.
and the brick are hardly allowed to
get cool before they are carted away.
Good prices are demanded and cheer?
fully paid,but not withstanding this,a
number of car loads have to be brought
here from Lynchburg and other sur?
rounding cities. The class of build?
ings now in course of erection is inuch
better than it has been in years past.
The work is als'? being done in a much
more substantial manner and Roa
noke is takLig on an appearance
which will campare most favorably
with larger and more pretentious
places in the couutry.
In the West End any number of
elegant new residences are being
pushed forward to completion. On
Pattison avenue Postma?ter A. S. As
bery is ^uiidiug a magnificent home
for himself. It is to be of pressed
brick with white marble facings.
When pressed brick is said it is not
meant That the building is to have
the regulation pressed brick front,
but it is to be of pressed brick on all
sides and from the foundation up.
The building when completed will be
one of the handsomest in the city and
will cost in the neighborhood of $15,
Just across the street Mr. Peter S.
Miller, of the Briiigewater Carriage
Works, has commenced the erection
of a beautiful little home. The foun?
dations are now ready for the frame
The house will be in the Queen Anne
style which is now so popular every
A square west of these two new
houses is that of Councilman Wood?
ward, which is now rapidly being
pushed forward. Mr. Woodward's
house i? on the corner of Patteron
avenue and D street, and is one of
the handsomest frame structures in
the city. It is very large, and is ar?
ranged with an eye to comfort. A
great wide verauda runs entirely
iround the house, and adds a great
deal to its appearance.
In the West End Mr. Payne, of tin;
Romoke Construction Company, is
also building himself a handsome and
stylish home at a cost of 84,000. Mr.
Payne expects to get into his house
in the course of two months.
I The Moomaw Bro.s are building
several pretty little Queen Anne cot?
tages, and the elegant home of Mr. L.
L. Powell, a description of which has
already been printed in the Timks, is
rapidly getting into shape.
It will not be long now before the
West End furnace is finished, and it is
expected to go into bl?st at an early
day. Wheu the rolling mill gets into
operation it is thought that at leat>t
500 men will be employed there.
Plans and specifications for a number
of pretty cottages to be erected near
the furnace have been prepared, and
it is expected that work will be begun
on them at an early day.
A large number of new business
houses are in process of erection or
the plans are being considered. The
ground between the postoffice build
I ing and HeDry street is to be built
I up at an early day. Dr. Reeves, of
j Henry county, will erect on the corner
a large store. Mr. Asberry intends to
erect another next to it, and the
remaining space between the post
I office will be filled by another large
store. This will add greatly to the
appearance of Campbell street, at this
point. Just aems? the street Dr.
Kirk, it is 6aid will erect a hand?
some storehouse to be occupied by a
centlenian from Washington who will
open there with a stock of gents' fur?
nishing goods. On the opposite cor?
ner the firm of Moomow Bros, are
now putting the finishing touches to
a handsome three story building in
which the Timks will be published.
More About the Scioto Transfer.
As stated in an official circular
printed in yesterday's News the Scioto
Valley and New England Company
has completed the transfer of control
to the Norfolk and Western Railroad
Company, the latter company making
the necessary guarantee of the$5,000,
000 bonds of the Scioto Valley and
New England Railroad Company, the
principal and interest.. The old board
of directors of the S. V. & N. E. R. R.
Company remain, except that Mr.
Doran. of the Norfolk and Western,
enters the Scioto Valley board, and
Mr. Hemphill, secretary of the Norfolk
and Western, becomes secretary of the
Scioto Valley and New England Rail?
road Company. The board limits the
issue of bonds to $5,000,000, and makes
a supplemental Norfolk and Western
mortgage securing them. The Nor?
folk and "Western Company make by
stipulation New York City the term?
inus of the system.
A His; Deal.
We state upon good authority that
the Arminius Mines have been sold to
an English syndicate for ($500,000)
five hundred thousand dollars?and
the same to is be stocked at twelve
hundred thousand dollars. The new
syndicate are to put up large sulphuric
acid and phosphate works to cost
from $250,000 to $300,000 on Mineral
City property. And it is understood
that reduction works are soon to fol?
low. Several of the old gold mines
will be reopened and worked, and
many desert places be made to blos?
som like the rose. We sincerely hope
that what is here on paper may soon
he on the ground; and that we may
realize ail 'mat we hope, and that its
realization will be but the dawn of a
bright day for this County and State.

DAY MORNING, JUL
I'OC A HOST AN 511? UK I? It EHESTE?.
Reports of IllotH There Untrue mid
Pocahantas, July 26, 1890.
To the Editor ltonnoke Times.
At the request of numerous citizens
of this place I beg to submit for the
information of your readers a protest
against the great injustice done to
our people by frequent publications
appearing in Virginia papers, repre?
senting rioting and general lawless?
ness in this section, when there has
been no foundation whatever for the
wild statements made. We fully ap?
preciate a live, progressive newspaper,
and will utter uo complaint when the
truth is told in regard to any trouble
we may have, but we very naturally
feel disgusted over the action of pub?
lishers who, instead of lending a help
inghand in upholding the fair name of
their State in every proper way,
al wayb seem to be ready to besmirch
and defame simply to cater to the de?
praved appetites of a certain class of
readers who are ever ready to feed on
excitement, regardless of results. In
the past year we have quietly sub?
mitted to gross misrepresentations
regarding riots, bloodshed, etc, in
our midst, while the best of good
order prevailed amongst us. We ask
now that you will kindly let us say to
your numerous readers that the ac?
count published in Lynchburg, Rich?
mond, and even Philadelphia papers
of this week of "bloody riots" in this
community on Sunday last, In con?
nection with which several peple were
shot, etc., was a pure fabrication from
beginning to end. Today the writer
succeeded in detecting a son of
Ham in an effort to forward
for publication a Munchausen
story in which the blood thirsty Hat
fields and McCoys were vividly pie
tured in a combined attack upon our
town. This literary genuis, who is
likely the author of former* absurb
newspaper items, purporting to be
special dispatches from here, will
likely change his address to the
county seat in the near future, as bis
last effort, which failed to reach the
publishers, savors sufficiently of libel
to warrant one of our citizens in en?
deavoring to secure free boarding for
him for awhile. Should you or any
newspaper publisher desire to be kept
po-ted in the events of this section,
truthful people can readily be found
to serve you without reflecting unfav?
orably on what we claim to be one of
the must orderly and law-abiding
mining districts in this or any other
country. As whatever injures the
reputation of our people in this busy
section of the State will surely tell
against the Commonwealth of the
"Ohl Dominion." 1 am sure that you
will not hesitate to do us justice in
publishing this item. Yours trulv,
P. P. Dillon,
Mayor of Pocahontas.
The Midway Iron Mill.
The rumor that the plant of the
Miday Iron Mill, located between this
city and Vinton. would be removed
to Salem or Lynchburg has caused
considerable talk amomr the business
men of the city. 11 seems that a la rge
majority of the stockholders have re?
fused to pay their assessment, upon
the grounds that the mill is not
located in the corporate limits of the
city. Mr. Davis, the manager, claims
that several other towns have offered
very liberal inducements and unless
the matter is promptly adjusted he
will pull up his plant and leave. The
mill is nearly completed and would be
ready for business by September 1st
and it would not only be expensive to
remove it at but a great loss of time to
Mr. Davis, the manager. It is hoped
that, the meeting, which has been
called for Tuesday evening, the
29th inst, that the matter will
be properly adjusted, and that
the stockholders may come to
some definite understanding so
that work may be resumed and the
mill be completed.

The Score in Detail.
The Alerts are good players, bat
they were not alert enough yester?
day to break even with the Roanokes
in the two game ueries that General
Greeley kindly allowed to be played
the past week.
They were hustled around when it
came to fielding; they are in fact
stronger there than the home club,
but it did them little good. They
had not the good eye necessary to
locate the drops, shoots and curves
that. Quarles sent over the plate.
To that same plate they walked
like lambs to the slaughter, and
when the game was over it was found
that nineteen of them had failed to
connect with the ball. Only one of
the men from Washington got a hit,
nd that was on a little scratch that

In the third Roanoke got two more

hit by the pitcher. Roseuthal's sacri?

Kelly's high throw to the plate gave I
riproul a chance to score and he|
didn't neglect the opportunity.
Two innings were passed over and
botli clubs drew goose eggs. In the
sixth two tallys were made by the
home club on hits by Widgins and
Quarles, a wild pitch by Fuller and
Reefer's sacrifice. The eighth, also
saw a brace of runners cross the plate
Hits by Quarles,Keeler and Wigmore,

the event by striking out.
The game had few unusual features I
and all of them were on the fly catch

himself by making a great runnin?
catch of Wigmore'sfiy tocentre while
the crowd yelled itself hoarse* When
the little center fielder came in the
good natured audience gave him an?

Offer 1,300 building lots for $150
each. Weekly payments of $1.50.
The Baltimore and Ohio Land Com?
pany, of Salem, Va., owning 227 acres
of laud within half a mile of Salem,
Va., admirably located for building
lots, have determined to offer 1.300
lots for sale at $150 each, including
corner lots, in the following manner:
Lot clubs of 100 members each will
be formed. Each member thereof
paying $1.50 per week or $(5 per
month until $150 is paid. Each mem?
ber will draw for a lot at the regular
weekly drawing, and one lot will be
drawn every week until 100 lots are
drawn. The two members drawing
the last two lots will get two lots each
instead of one.
The one drawing a lot can at any
time pay up on his lot and get a deed
to it, as the company own their land
in fee simple; or he can pay one-third
cash, balance in one and two years,
and the company will allow such pur?
chaser 10 per cent, discount given on
A purchaser building, within six
months, a house costing not less than
$500, on his lot, will have a reduction
of 25 per cent, on bis purchase, mak?
ing his lot cost $112.50.
Several clubs will be organized in
this city, so that a member can join
one or more clubs, and draw in each
club weekly by the payment of_one
dollar and ($1.50) fifty cents in each
club. No interest is charged on these
The land has been surveyed, laid
out in streets and the lots numbered.
The laid lies partially in the rear of
the Roanoke College, and half a mile
from the center of the town. Water
mains run through the land, side?
walks are also contemplated, and
pleasant homes, close to businesp,
could be erected at small cost, either
as a home for the owner or to rent
out, as houses are in great demand in
As a safe investment this is beyond
precedent, and enables one of small
means to secure property constantly
on the increase in value.

Bv United Press.
London, July 27.?Exclusive in?
formation, given three weeks ago, re?
garding the protest by Great Britain
against the seizures by American
cruisers in Behring Sea,has been fully
confirmed by official correspondence
on the subject. The attitude of the
English government is that any far
ther seizures will provoke armed hos?
tilities. Whether these hostilities'
would be followed by war would be
for America to decide, as England's
fleet in the north Pacific would un?
doubtedly sweep Behring Sea clean
of American cruisers, and thereby re?
move immediate occasion of British,
or rather Canadian, complaints. The
situation in London is that whatever
is the result of the pending negota
tions regarding the Behring Sea, Am?
erica can have war on her liands at
any time by persisting in the capture
of British sealers.
