Nothing better than this election
shows the difference of Roanoke from
other cities. Everywhere else excite-,

the election mentioned. The spirit of
the Old South is not so strongly de?
veloped here as in other places. In
the oM days it used to be politick
before business, in these new days it is
just the reverse.
FOR HEALTH AND REALTY.
The action cf Councilman McConnell,
in introducing at last the meet?
ing of the Council, a resolu?
tion asking that a burial placi
for dead animals b* provided, cannot
be too highly commended. Such a
cemetery should by ail means be es?
tablished. At present the animals art
dragged to the banks of the Roanoke j
river, as has before been mentioned iu 1
ihe Times, and then left as food for
the vultures. This place is just ab ovo
the bridge, and along oue of the most
beautiful walks and drives about tin !
environs of the city. It is practically
spoiled, and Mr. McCoonelPs resolu-1
lion should he favorably reported, if!
only to save it.
The selection of General Jossfe
E Johnston to unveil the Lee statin
is a most fitting one. Next to the
great commander himself general
Johnston, perhaps, tanks as the
:.blast Confederate general.

PROSPECTUS OF THE ROANOKE [
WATER POWER AND LAND'
; The Roanoke Water Power and
: Land Co. owns 209 acres of land, ly?
ing on the Roanoke river, adjoining
! the corporation limits, and about one
mile from the City Hall. TheBeltLine
lailroad, as staked out and adopted
j by the Norfolk and Western railroad
! for early .construction on the south
j bank of the Roanoke river, runs
, through the property, thereby devel
1 oping, for industrial plants between
the railroad and the river, sites that
! cannot be surpassed.
One of the significant features of
I this enterprise is that the company
> absolutely coutrols,upou ts own estate
j the entire* How of the Roanoke river.
, The ground is very favorable for the
' rapid and cheap constructiou of a
. canal whereby water power may be
, furnished at a low cost to manufactur
I ing enterprises. It is proposed to
j build this canal at once, and to estab-;
lish, at the earliest possible day, an
I electrical plant to furnish light to the ;
i property and vicinity, power to street i
I railways running to and through the
I city, and what is more important than
all, to distribute small power to the >
houses of "workers/' both male and !
female, located on the company's
It is proposed to connect the e>tute
of the Roanoke Water Power and
Laud Company by iron bridges with
the streets and boulevards of the
Mountaiu View and West End Laud |
Companies' tracts, two of the most
attractive surburban additions to
It is believed that this enterprise,
combining the facilities afforded by
the railroad and the river, in conjunc
II ion with thegreat natural advantages
of the site, meaus the establishment
of a new industrial centre in Roanoke
that will prove most attractiveito the
outside world, ami largely and rapidly
[advance the coming of what is now a
j certainty?that Roanoke is to be. at
no remote day, the priucipal indus?
trial city of Virginia, if uot of the
I South. I
The completion of the Roanokejand '
Southern railroad, now an; assured I
fact, conuects the Southern Atlantic;
' Seaboard by a bee line with this lo- i
i calitv, and opens direct communica?
tion with the high grade ores and
I irons of Eastern Virginia and North
! The terms upon which the public
| are offered an interest in this enter
prise are entirely novel, inasmuch as
, the promoters and managers do not
recive any compensation until the
moderate amount of capital, which
they propose to associate with them,
is absolutely secured and remunerated
The Capital Stock of the Com?
pany will be.$350,000
Of whichthere will be Prefer?
! And common Stock.$200,000
j Of this $200,000 of common stock and
I $G0,000 of the preferred stock have
I been issued for the property fully
! paid for, leaving a remainder in the
treasury for future use, of $90,000.
The preferred stock will be entitled
to a Oper cent, cumulative dividend
before any dividends can be declared
i on the common stock. The preferred
i stock will be receivable at any time at
j its cash value in payment for busi
[ ness and residence lots to be laid out
and placed upon the market. If, at
i any time within two years, the holder
' wishes to exchange a secured and pre
' ferred stock for a speculative one, he
can, by giving up his preferred stock
(for cancellation, receive in return
therefor an amount of common stock
equal to the preferred stock relin?
quished. In making any sales of
lands, the charter requires that a pro
I portionatepart of the proceeds thereof
shall be set aside, so that every dollar
j of outstanding preferred stock shall
be properly covered by this sinking
j tuud before any dividends can be de?
clared on the common stock. In con
. sideration of the absolute security
given to the preferred stockholder,
the company reserves the right, after
two years, to retire any outstanding
.preferred stock at par und accrued
! unpaid dividends.
: It is believed that a more honest,
legitimate and attractive proposal
cannot be made to the investing pub?
lic. The promoters of this enterprise
are confident that large ultimate
profits can be made by conservative,
! energetic and methodical manage
i meut. They do not seek a spasmodic
i "boom," but a steady and valuable
I growth. The property they control
j is admirably located "and "naturally
j favorable. "Business enterprises will
he conliuedto the broad, elevated and
! sandy plateau lying between the >?.i
road and the river. Residence lot?
j will be located on the rounded, wooded
j andbeautiful foothillsto the westward
; and southward. The drainage of the
i whole can be made perfect at a mod
> erate expense.
In order to give people of moderate
means an opportunity of becoming
interested where their money is se?
cured ami available at any moment
for the purchase of a home, the par
of the stock, both preferred and com?
mon, is placedat $20?twenty-five (25)
per cent, to be paid upon call after
the allotment of the stock, and the
balance in monthly calls of ten (10)
In no event can the capital stock
exceed $350,000, but may, and proba
ably will be. largely reduced by can?
cellation of the preferred stock used
in payment of lots purchased and re?
The preferred stock can only bo
placed at par?the proceeds to be used
in making the place attractive and for
the establishment of industries. In
view of recent sales of adjacent prop
erties, it will be seen that the pre- '?
ferred stock to be issued is far below;
the present value of the mere land
without any improvements.
Only $100,000 in preferred stock will
: be offered for sale. This will meet all
deferred payments on the land, giving
it in fee, and place $.30,000 in cash in '
the treasury as a working capital, to
be only used, if actually needed, in
adding value to the property.
The right to subscribe will remain
open until June 1st, 1890, and the stock
will be allotted according to priority
