INDUSTRIES COMINtl SOUTH.
Vp to the oponing of the present year,
"??arly all of the Northern indstries that
xosghta Southern location were of an
iron nature. The cheapness of South?
ern pig was the magnet that drew these
enterprises away from their long esta?
blished mud sills.
That the South was rich in other
uheap raw materials, beside iron, did
not seem to dawn upon the Northern
manufacturer, or at least, he could not
get the consent of his mind to believe it.
Most of the marvelous statements
regarding rich mineral resources wen?
viewed in the light of "boom talk."
But a few lo39 incredulous explored
the South, and returned home glib with
tho tales of the wonderful possibilities
offered for every line of manufacturing
Then tho movomont received its first
.impetus, and tho present year has wit?
nessed tho transfer to the South of
many scores of manfaoturing plants,
representing a wide range of Industrial

Tfithin only a few months time we have
noted the establishment, in the various
now towns, of which Roanoko occupies

Brought from the West or tho North.
During tho coming year this Industrial

sow is tho time for Roanoke, and the
wido-awake towns around us, to map out
aaampaign for scouring these industries
that are contemplating a change of base
to the South.
THE OLD TICKET.

Tho newspaper exchange reader, who
oaeupios an observatory position and

any one else to observe the astonishing
unatninity in the opinion everywhere
expressed that Cleveland and Elaine
?aro the men who will head the Demo?
cratic and Republican tickets respec?
tively in 18l>2.
That those two men have been brought
' more prominently to the front in their
parties tiy reason of the outcomo of the
reoont election,is a recognized fact about
which there Booms to bo no divided
Mr. Blaino ha? probably more admir?
ers to-day, both In and out of bis part v.
thau he ov t had, and. as we write, wr
have in mind a particularly fair and
able editorial in tho Richmond Dispatch
OOnoertilng tho Secretary of State.
Mr. Cleveland's political strength has
boon accentuated by the result, and
whether ho ha the choice of New York
or not, ih< re can hardly be any doubt
of bis being unmistakably the prefor
oko ? of n majority.
T,. same is equally true of Mr.
Rlmic lie is now pre-eminently the
lead r ol tho Republican party, as Ju?
lias been the brains of it all along. It
soenis, theroforo, most probable that tho
campaign of 1884, with Cleveland as
tho Democratic standard bearer, and
Blaino the Republican nominee, will bo
fought over again.
Tili: SOUTH IS A i.i. Itlt'.IIT.

The confidence In tho material pros
pets of tho Southern States is unshaken.
Money matters with us are easy. The
present season has witnessed the har?
vesting of the largest crops ever known
to our farmers.
Tho fact of the business is, the South
never was in a better condition in every
way than it is to-day. The fondest ex
pectation of her industrial dreamers
havo been more than realized.
Rut tho end is not yet. The un?
touched mineral wealth that lies be?
neath the surface of our hillsides, the
gushing water power that Hows on un?
harnessed, tho maze of standing forests
awaiting the woodman's ax, the lavish
abundance of a diversity of raw ma?
terials; all these are yet to swell
the volumes of development and make
this region the most wonderful on the
face of the earth.

Roanoke is a solid city and Southwest j
Virginia is a safe place to put money.
Tho recent prcssuro in tho money \
market did not atfect this section. Busi?
ness has moved on smoothly and briskly,
and Roanokers would scarcely have
known of tho recent financial troubles
in New York and London had they not
read the accounts in tho newspapers.
TlIB Timks has been anxious all along
to announce tho interesting facts
brought out by interviews with promi?
nent financiers yesterday.
S. \Y. Jamison, secretary and treas?
urer of the Loan and Trust Company,
one of the largest financial institutions
of the State, was interviewed by TlIE
TlMKS man on the financial condition
and outlook for tho future.
"We have scarcely been affected by
tho depression in New York, and the
trouble is all over, business here is
moving briskly, building operationstire
being pushed forward as rapidly as the
mechanical facilities will allow, real es?
tate is selling easily and there is no de?

"The fart that this section has gone
through tho recant events in money
centers withoi t being affected will in?
spire confidence that could have been
gained in no other way, and that will
finally result in great good.
"A few weeks ago a great decline in j
real estate values was predicted. This ]
decline has not materialized, and there
is not any probability that it will. i

that investments here are safe, and are

James S. Simmons, who keeps
thoroughly posted on the financial situa?
tion, was also seen by tho reporter.
"This section," said he, "is perfectly
safe, though there was naturally some
uneasiness a few weeks ago. The
trouble is all over .and we have not been
alTecled. business moves on briskly,
and the ev< nts of the past few weeks

It. II. Woodrum, prcsidont of the
Commercial Club and prominently con
m cted wiln many of the leading enter?
prises of ltoanoku, regarded the situa?
tion as favorable.

Of tho Kellogg Opera Company tho
New Haven News says: They Clara
Louise Kellogg Opora Company opened
its season in America with the presenta?
tion at. the Hyperion yesterday evening
of Verdi's grand opera, "II Trovatore."
Her voice has lost none of its old-time
force and sweetness, and tho high tones
aro remarkably clear and full. lcsoemH

D. She takes tho part of "Leonora"
finely, with quite enough force and re?
alization of its requirements. The oast
is more than good.
Evangellne I.ust Nljjlit.
Evangolino was presented to a packed
house last night. The audience was
largely masculine, though quite a num?
ber of ladies were present, and gave
i abundant, evidence of its appreciation.
' The attraction, or rather distraction, of
the evening's entertainment was the
shapeliness of the girls that appeared
on tho stago.
"Little Nugget" is tho attraction for
to-night, with indications already that
tho house will be packed again.
