North Tazewelil, July 14, 1897.
Tazewell Must Have Them, or Its Growth
In the past five years the growth of our
town and population and trade has been
very satisfactory. About five years ago
the population of the town was in the
neighborhood of seven hundred souls. By
a recent census, made by Mr. John H.
Lewis, the population of Tazewell, within
the corporate limits, was found to be
twelve hundred and sixty-five, an increase
of nearly ninety per cent. This increase
has been due to several causes, the build?
ing of the Clinch Valley railroad and the
starting of small manufacturing enterprises
in the town and at the station being the
chief factors in producing it. The growth
was healthy and substantial, and it ought
to be the earnest desire of every citizen to
see it continue.
In our judgment there is one course that
must be pursued or tue town will not
move much more. There must be more
industrial enterprises started. Factories
to work up a vast amount of line timber
that lies all around us could be made val?
uable investments. A knitting mill
wouldn't be a bad idea,and a foundry and
machine shop properly run would pay
handsomely. There are many other en?
terprises that could be made profitable and
that would add greatly to the population
and trade of the town. Interest in such
matters will have to be awakened, or the
growth of the town will be stopped. The
town can't reach a much higher point
in business and population by the simple
building of storehouses and dwellings.
We are pleased to state that the con?
dition of Mr. John Thompson is much
more hopeful than last week.
Mr. T. M. Ratliif remains very sick,
with no improvement, we learn, since our

No Health Meeting.
What's the matter "with the citizens of
the town? Have they become indillerent
to the health regulations of the p.ace? The
Mayor, Mr. J. A. Greever, by direction
of the town council, called a meeting of
the citizens for last Saturday after?
noon, to select a Board of Health;
and not a citizen attended. Every well
regulated town or community now has a
Board of Health, and Tazewell ought not
be behind. It is true that the health of
the community is now very gcod, but that
is no reason why proper steps should not
be taken to keep it so.
Base Ball Entertainment.
The members of the Tazewell baseball
club gave a supper last night to help bear

sisting only of prayer by. Rev. Mr. John?
ston, Rev. Dr. Duffy, of the Methodist
Episcopal Church, South, and Chaplain

Probable That Some Arrangement Will
be Made With Democrats.
Speaking of the Ohio and Virginia cam?
paigns, Senator Butler said,that there were
no developments which could be discussed.
"In Ohio," said he, "there are 50,000
voting Populists. They have not yet fused
with the Democrats, nor will they, unless
the basis of agreement is an equitable one.
In Virginia,it is probable that some amica?
ble arrangement will be made between the
Democrats aud Populists"''
Senator Butler would not give the prob?
able programme to be followed in Virginia.
It was leurned from other sources, how?
ever, that the Populists, when they meet
at Roauoke on the 25th inst., would prob?
ably nominate a ticket and then appoint a
committee to confer with the Democrats
when the latter hold their convention.
This committee will probably be given the
authority to withdraw any or all of the
Populist nominees, provided that the Dem?
ocrats meet the Populists in adequate fu?
sion. It is said that the Republicans have
already made overtures to the Populists
for a combination, but this, of course, will
not be agreed to.

The McKinley Equipoise.
If those who have seen most of him since
the 4th of March were asked what trait ofthe
President's character had impressed them
especially, they would say, hia marvelous
[ self-control. The adjective is right. The
' McKinley temper is marvelous. In the
four years of a Presidential term tue first
quarter is the most trying. Tins President
has passed through the ordeal Tli? Jirst
'evidence of irritation is yet to be if died.
Mr. McKinley is a man of convictions. He
does hot hesitate to expres* disapproval.
Bat he never yields to the petulance which,
attends upon annoyances. There liave
' been great men in the White House, but
' history records explosions of passion from
? Washington all of the way down the line
I to the present exception. This equipoise
of Mr. McKinley is so remarkable that it
: has been spoken of frequently as a natural
gift of great worth. The possesors b.aye
been congratulated as if it was an
inheritance. The truth i?, this complete
self-comniand is second, not first, nature
wich Mr. McKinley. It was acquired by
such rigid training as seldom faJJ% to the
lot of man.
"I remember McKinley,'' said oneof his
oldest friends, "as a man with his full
share of impulsiveness. The time was,when
he gave way as other men do under strain
or provocation. Do you want to know
what wrouorh! the change? For twenty
five years this man has stood between his
wife and all that might give her the slight?
est worry. No matter what the load hef
was bearing, he has never failed to wear
in her presence a smiling face*. What?
ever emotions might be surging under?
neath, he iias appeared calm and placid
on the suiface. This frail being owes her
life to his shielding care. Self control
was born of that twenty-five years of de?
votion. There you have the whole expana
