The meeting of businessmen at the
Young Men's Christian Association
Hall yesterday afternoon was called
for the purpose of settling the ques?
tion at once, and their is every reason
to believe that it vvili be settled i> >foro

ihe courwe ot half a dozen minutes a~
many thousand dollars were sub
Bcribed to the Guarantee Company,
ami a committee was appointed to
solicit additional subscriptions. .\1

the $13,500 yet to be subscribed will,

The meeting was called to or ler at
t o'clock, and Mr. lt. E. Scott was
made chairman, lliuton Helper act?
ing ~as secretary. The audience was
made up of-'representative business
men and they were determined to
settle the matter at once and for
good There was an atmosphere of
business in the hall and the meeting
was st rictly business.
At tVe utggestion of Mr. Jjis. S.
Siuim >ns the chairman invited Presi?
dent '''rout of the read to address the
meeting. Mr. Trout did so at some
length and his speech was full of
good and effective poiuts. Mr. Trout
prefaced his remarks by saying that
he proposed to make a plain state
ment of facts. He then gave a concise
history of the road from its inception
up to the present time. Eullock and
Company first took tl.ontract to
build it and spent several thousand
dollar- in surveying.
They were to have completed the
line for the company, but tailed, and
then the Virginia and North < Carolina
Construction Company w:is organ?
ized, and they undertook the work >?!
building the road. "They have."
sain Mr. Trout, ??under many dilli :ul
ties, done remarkably well, and by
the first of December if is expected
that trains will be running into Mar
tinsville from Winston." The presi?
dent then went ?>n to explain the
difficulty experienced by the roa ! in
gettiug into the city. Their efforts
had met with nothing but discourage?
ment. They wer.- willing pay
$?0,000 for-a route into the city, but
they soon found that it would cost
them a good deal over $100,000 to get
in. and they very properly refused to
The crisis had to be met.and at this
juncture the G ua ran tee (lompany was
suggested. Mr. Trout explained the
object olrthis company, and said that
for various reasons it had not b ;en
successful in raising the entire
amount. He believed that if it wen
raised there was not doubt !>ut
what the road would come to Roa
Mr. D. C. Mo nuaw - iggested th ?.:
Colonel Fries, the president >>t the
construction company, address the
meeting: Colonel Erics said that he
was called upon rather unexpectedly.
He had had no idea that he would be
asked to participate in any meeting
when he came to the city. He then
went on am! briefly outlined the work
of the company as it has thus fai
been done and spoke intelligent!} ol
the question of coining into the city
with the road. He said, that thecoiu
pany had wrestled with the question
tor a long time and as yet did not see
their way clear as to the route.
He admitted that Roanoke had
done nobly in subscribing to so ma l:
stock, but the company could ei r
tainly not pay a- much as was nskei
to imii1 into the city. The prici
asked P?T^fr>?^J^I11,v over whicl
the road was to pass' P* - 'il
Surely there was no business man
there who would not say that this
was an exhorbitant price to pay. H
stated in this connection that Mr. E.
H.Stewart had been unjustly criti
cized. He had bought property along
the proposed route of the road, but
that property had been turned over
to the company at cost price, it was
then discovered that the price was too
much, and there the matter at pres?
He explained that the building of
the road was a matter of business,
nothing more,nothingle.-s, and it was
in that light alone that the construc?
tion company wen- obliged to rega rd
it. They bad to make every dollar
go as far as it would am! the si riefest
economy had to bp used. 'Ihn I can
aid you intwo ways" said Col. Fries.
"1 understand that there i< a division
among the citizens regarding tin
point at which the road shall enter
the town. I can tell you this. The
western entrance into the city. has.
after mature consideration, been
abandoned. The road if it comes at
all will come from the east, if this
information will be of any assistanc ?
to you in coming to a conclusion you
are welcome to it."
''The terminus at Winston." con?
tinued the colonel, "did not cost us
but $9,0U0, and you may imagine
what the people of that city think of
paying fifteen times as much as was
paid there for a terminus here- They
do not feel inclined to go down into
their pockets to pay for building the
road and let Roanoke do little else
than pay for her own terminus. The
company has abandoned any such
idea, and unless something towards
securing a terminus here is done at
an early day the road will not come
here at all. I think I have done my
duty in this matter and stated the
facts just as they are. 1 want to say
here, for the information of the
people of Roanoke. that we don't ask
her far a cent more than si e has
already givcu .Mithat we do want
is an entrance into the city at a price
we can pay."
"Did or did not the construction
company make a contract to build
the road to Roanoke'' asked Mr.
"Such a contract was made" said
Colonel Fries, but it has never been
Mr. Dupuy suggested that a com?
mittee be appointed to wait upou the
construction company, and learn the
the exact amount- it" would cost to

DAY MORNING, AUG
might fally understand it. In a few
well chosen words Mr. Simmons did
this. He .said that Colonel fries hud
doubtless other irons in the lire und
i ould make uo promises, but that the
road would come if the routel-*xv^|
secured he had no doubt. .
Then President Trout said he
wanted to say a few words more. He
was in a position to know, and
though, of course, be could not
speak officially, he believed that
the road would come as soon as the
company was made up.
"It will not he many days," said
Mr. Tnu;t. "before grading will be
commenced right at our doors, und
not mauy months before trains will
he rolling info our city from Wins?
ton." (Applause.) "1 will state right
here that the construction company
is the dog .-ind the road is the tail,
but both of them mean business. I
want the question settled at once,'"
continued Mr. Trout. "I believe 1
will live ten years longer if it is- If
there is one person, there is a hundred

Ii is the Ural thing iu lie- morning
and the last at night. Why, it takes
me ti n minutes to ^,-( from the hank
to the post ofllee. The people want

Mr. il. St.-wart agreed entirely
with Mr. Trout, lie made a short
speech saying that the meeting was a
mo>t important one and incidentally
t.?|<| of the purchance of the land's
over which the road was to have en?

ed him to buy properly ami ;r>-t op?

done to i he besl ol his anility. Upon
calculating the cost i' had been dis?

greater than was expected and Out of

The Norfolk and Webern Railroad
Company yesterday morning made
up .i second section to No. east

! The train consisted of live PulllU ;ii
coaches -one from Anniston, Ala . to

Boston; a third from Florid;v?fefi3$p

Memphis to Washington.
They arrived in Roanoke at 9.30a.
in., and left an hour later via the
Shenaudoah Valley. There] was a
large number of Alabama people on
the train, and when a TIMES reporter
talked to a number of the passengers
he was cordially received. ?4
Mr. W. T. W?llac-.a member of the
city council of Anniston, and presi?
dent of the fire department of that
city, is an ardent aduiiicr of his home
and says without exception it is the
besl laid out town in the South. Her
population now numbers 10,000 souls,
and is steadily increasing. A cotton
mill, foundries, pipe works, furnaces
and ear shops constitute her ninnu
fact uriug enterprises, and all of which
are now in successful operation.
The reporter also had an interview
with Colonel C. S. Shattuck, com
manderof the (J. A. R. post at Annis?
ton. Colonel Shattuck is.a native of
Massachusetts, hut has been in the
South tor the last eight years. He

A CurioiM Engine.
The Baltimore and Ohio train
which arrives here at 9:20 a. in. from
Washington, was drawn yesterday by
a remarkable curious engine, which
belongs to a private individual by
the name of Henry Shaw, the eu
gine bearing his name on the side
of the cabin. The company has it
hired for a short while. It is pecu?
liarly constructed having double
cylinders, pistons, elc, and is said to
be tlie easiest running engine in the
United States, a medal being dis?
played in the cabin for that honor.
Its peculiar whistle, which is similar
to a sream tug, drew a considerable
number of people to the station to
<ee ft off. In fact is was quite a
?uriousity in the line of engines.
