"An assessment of real estate values

it is greatly to tho disadvantage of

assessment of real estate every two

?Why don't you keep up your light

a TlMKS man yesterday.
"I am glad to see that TltK Times
takes a stand on all important issues,
and that it is always with tin' interests
of the people."
"There are many things hero that
need reform, atnl. like all new towns,
there is room for improvement: but,"
continued the speaker, "the public
schools of the city are one of tho first
things that should receive attention
when the work of improvement begins.
"Tho Dnaneo committee of the City

it nor. ridiculous for a city of 22.000 peo?

should do is to put a practical and pro- 1
gressive man tit the head of the public
school system, and enough money be
hind him to furnish school facilities to
every child of school ago in the city."
?'This will be done, but the more it i ,
agitated the sooner."
??What has become of that hospital
commit tee and its fund?" asked a promi?
nent physician of tho reporter. "Surely
the philanthropic genl lernen who started
out with such line prospects have not
forgotten their important trust, in the
big real estate boom, but they really
do seem to be keeping mighty quiet."
"Confound these streets" said tin irate
citizen as he stepped k'neodoop into a
ditch at a street, crossing, and barked
his shin against the curbing. "1 wonder
when Koanoke will have first-class
streets." he continued as he limped olf
rubbing the bruise and wearing an ex
prcssion of agony.
One of the first things Tut: TlMKS
man about town saw when he went on
the streets yesterday was Mr. Charles
II, Hush, ii popular sergeant of the Koa?
noke Light Infantry, without his mous?
tache. Iiis friends had hoped to see
him captain, but when they saw him
yesterday their hopes lied.
"Wo don't, want, old croakers here."
said a progressive president of a big
land company to a group of well-dressed
men. apparently Northern men, who
were gathered about, him. "Koanoke is
the best town in the country, and. con?
sidering its age and proportions, well
up in tho way of modern improvements.
We intond to have more and welcome
everybody who is willing to roll up his

One of them was holding a Republican

J with roosters, that looked like cold

"The real ?'State agents here are very

old real estate man. "When the town

"they button-holed every visitor before

A bright young "tar hfiel," who re?
cently came to Roanoke to mako his

talking about Koanoke. in general, "A

Canadians Employed in Hauling
Cotton for Export.
Washington, Nov. 8.?[Special]?
Thequestion has again been presented to
the Treasury Department as to whether
tho practice of employing the aliens from
Canada at. Norfolk, Va., in hauling cot?
ton for export is not in violation of the
alien contract labor law.
The agent reports that, while these
men undoubtedly go to Norfolk with tin
understanding that they will be given
work, it is almost Impossible to obtain
proof to that effect.
It is said at the Treasury Department
that the law does not apply to foreigners
who come to this country voluntarily in
Search of work, but only to such asaro j
sent for or who come under contract ex- |
press or implied.
The great ditlieulty in the present in
Stance is to prove tin- existence of any
sort of contract or agreement.
There are at present over twenty for?
eigners engaged at Norfolk in handling
cotton for English houses who are said
to be so employed in violation of law. j

and government and Austria have boon
further strained by advices from Coli lit

empress and archdukes, to break tho
Connection with the Italy lUtot-uui, ot
Rome, contriving to got hold ol dis?
patches from Cardinal (lulimbertl to the
Pope, reporting tho progress in diplo?
macy tending to Isolate the Italian
