posed of yesterday in Judge Wood's
court. In the circuit court the Instruc?
tions to tho jury In the Merrlman case
vs. the Street Railway Company were
partially argued, and the jury was ad?
journed over until to morrow. This
action on the part of Judge Dupuy was
caused by a report oomlng from the jury
that someone had been prompting wit?
nesses while on the stand. The court
afterwards Issued a rule against this
party to appear on to morrow for inves?
tigation of the charges, which was
Berved by an officer yestorday atteruoon.

calling of an entirely new one to try the
case. If so, counsel for the plaintiff
will move that the case be tried at this
term of tho court. Tho party accused
of prompting witnesses emphatically
denies the chargos, and his friends re
fueo to believo them.
Itounoke BRxebnll Notes.
A well-attended meeting of the stock?
holders of the Roanoke Baseball Asso
ciation took place in the office of Smith
& ltlng at 1 o'cloak yesterday after?
noon. The main question considered,
vizA "Whether Roanoke will enter tho
leatruo next season or not," was not
definitely decided upon. Owing to tho
fa?t that a large amount of money was
lost this season, a number of the stock?
holders refuse to put up more money for
next year, and unless outside assistance
can be obtained, it is quite likely that
Danvlllo will tako Roanoko's place in
the league. A committee of five was
appointed to canvass the city and ascer?
tain what aid can bo secured from lovers
of the game and business men, and will
roport to an adjourned meeting, to bo
held at the same place on the afternoon
of October 5, when the question will bn
definitely decided. The State Longue
managers will moot in Richmond on
October 11, and will decido which toams
will remain in the circuit.

KHK CITY ASSESSMENT.
Tho Work Which Uegan lu January Com?
Capt. Tulcy J. Mitchell, Statu assessor
for thu city, and Mr. U. L. Stevens, bis
assistant, have completed tho assess?
ment of roai estate in this city and sent
the returns to the State auditor, from
which they kindly furnished ThrTimks
tho following figures:
According to the old assessment of
1801, tho valuation of real estato in the
city was $8,412 040, while the new as?
sessment Is SO.785 731, showing a de?
crease of SI,620,315, tr a falling off of
about 20 per cant. Much of this de?
crease is due to the shrinkage of values
In suburban lots, which in lti'.io were
valued at from S150 to S300 per lot,
vwhilo tho same land is now only valued
at from 875 to $200 per acre.
VWhen it is remembered that tho as?
sessment of 1891 was made under great
difficulties, and when values of all prop?
erties were much inflated, it will be
seep that these gentlemen have spared
neither time nor trouble to arrive at a
fail estimate of the present values cf
real estato in tho city.
it is also bollevod that had these
ilues been takon in 1889, instead of
[8'.H, as was the case, they would not
have amounted to as much as the valua
tion of the assessment just completed.
Tho prosent assessment also shows that
tbe decrease in values has beon much
less in tbo busiress portions of the city.
The work of tho asscstors has been
thorough and comploto and gives gen
oral satisfaction. Tbetooits havo been
kept open in all the ?Uges of their work
for inspection and corrections and they
havo received bubat&ntial assistance
from tho city engineer and clerk of the
courts and bia deputy, Mr. Bryant.
Tho assessors havo boon courtooue and
accommodating at all times, and it is
believed tho result of their work in the
inoroased)facilities furnished for collect?
ing taxes, will result in an actual in?
crease of revenue.
IMPORTANT RELIGIOUS OUESTXON8.
Some of tho Subjecti Selected by Or.
Rev. Dr. W. C. Campbell announced
to the congregation of the First Presby?
terian Church last night that on Sunday
night noxt he would begin a series of
sermons on various questions that are of
interest to many parsons, anl whose
discussion may bo edifying. Some of
those questions aro of deepest interest,
and aro freely discussed, not only in as?
semblies met for that purpose, but by
Christian men and women, and by
others who, making no profession of
faith, are still deeply interested. Some
of these questions are:
"Can one bocome certain in this life
of his eternal salvatiou?" "Is the
Bible historically true.'" "Is the Rible
scientifically true?" "Is a man justi?
fied by his works."' "Is ssnoilficatlon
perfect In this life'.'" "What is the
ground of man's e-lection?" "Did Divid
write all the Fsa,lm6?" "What are our
sources of Information about (rod?"
"What do tho first eleven vorsos of tho
sixth chapter of Hebrews mean'.'" "Why
do we baptize littlo children'.'" "What
is tho historic origin of tbo ?ld 'Posta?
ment'.'" "What ii the historio origin of
the Now Testament?" "What Is tho
historic origin of tho H iglish Blblts?"
