The Tazewell District Conference of the
Methodist Church met in the Cove church
on last Thursday and closed with the wor?
ship of the Sabbath.
From the first session the attendance
was good. As formerly announced, Rev.
J. BjR^ard, who was born and reared in
thetfSove, preached the first sermon. The
service was one of profound interest, and
the interest of the first service continued to
the last. The business of the conference
was performed with facility and in most
perfect order. No time was logt, no inter?
est of the church was neglected. We hardly
know what to single outas having received
special attention since everything received
special attention in its proper place.
Much was said concerning the duty of
our people to assist in spreading the gospel.
Some one said that since God has blessed
us above almost any place on earth in the
beauty and fertility of our lands and in the
comfort of our homes, we ought to esteem
it a great privilege to transmute our wealth
into spiritual blessings for others less fa?
vored than we.

The missionary rally on Saturday was a
success. We congratulate Pastor Bailey
and the good women on their work. Some
of the addresses must bear fruit.
Sunday was a day of days. Tazewell
county and the Cove in particular was
at it& best. No better concourse could be
found. Socially, morally and intellectually
that congregation would be hard to surpass.
Dr. R. G. WaterhouBe preached one of
his graceful, thoughtful, fluent, forceful
sermons in the church at 11 a. m. Rev.
Eugene Black preached in the grove at the
same hour. Then followed dinDer. And
such hospitality as those dinners displayed
would be hard to duplicate in the wide
world. After every one had eaten to satis
f.otion and had rested a season the con?
gregation again assembled, this time to
hear Dr. Hearon in the house and Presi?
ding Elder Frazier in the grove. Both
congregations were edified.
We were struck with the fact that only
one out of twenty preachers was absent.
Rev. J. T. Frazier gave most perfect sat?
isfaction in the chair. Rev. J. S. French
acted as secretary. We think his minutes
were the most correct we have ever ob?
Altogether this was one of the most pleas?
ant religious gatherings ever held in the
county. No community could haveenterr

Marion and Tazewell Teams Cross
SOME GOOD PLAYING
But the Marion Boys Suffer Defeat in
On last Thursday afternoon the Marion
baseball team arrived in town to play with
the Tazewell team, as scheduled for Fri?
day, but the constant rain on Friday pre?
vented any playing that clay. The Marion
boys consented to stay over and play on
Saturday. The first game was played in
the morning and resulted favorably to the
Tazewell nine, by a score of 14 to 5. The j
Marion team did not seem to be in good
trim, and did the worst playing we ever]
=aw them do in a match game. They
failed to profit by their defeat of t he morn?
ing and consented to play another game in
the afternoon. Up to the 6th inning they
kept in the lead, and many were confident
they would win; but the Tazewell boys got j
an tneir metal and forged to the front, the
score standing at the end of the game 17 to
) in their favor. Both games were won by
;he superior base running and fielding of
;he Tazewell team, and the games lost by
;he Marion boys by their deficiencies on
;hose lines. Both games were free from
lisagreeable contentions, and the Marion
3oys wen high commendations by their
imiable ancTgentlemanly demeanor, if they
lid prove easy victims to our boys. Marion
vants Tazewell to cross bats with her on
ler own grounds, and promises to make
hings lively for their visitors.
We are informed that the Tazewell boys |
lave concluded to furnish them an oppor
unily next week.
The Marion baseball club, claiming the
ihampionehip of Southwest Virginia and
iast Tennessee, was defeated here by the
Tazewell club last Saturday in a very in
eresting game. The playing of the Taze
vell boys was very swift at times, but the
,'isitors, with the exception of Rosenbaum
;nd Sprinkle seemed to have an "off day."
ihe features of the game were the battery
rork of Kelly and Henry for the home
earn, the double play of the O'Keeffe
M others and Harman and the batting of
dull, Rosenbaum and Henry.

This excellent dramatic company is now
filling a week's engagement at the town
hall. Before coming here it played at
Bluefield and Pocahontas, and the press
notices at both places were very flattering.
Its capability has not been exagerated,
and it is pronounced by competent judges
the best company that has ever appeared
in our town. On Monday night it rendered
in excellent style "Michael Strogofl,"
which is dramatized from Jules Verne's
celebrated novel. The story is a thrilling
one and the actors all did their parts well,
the work of J. S. Garside as "Michael"
Percy Warren as "Benjamin Franklin
Blunt" and Geo. Warren as Napoleon
Boneparte Laidlow" being exceptionally
strong. The audience was delighted.
On Tuesday nignt "Too Much Married"
was presented to a good audience and on
last night, "The Mountain Pink," a
moonshine, mountain story was played.
To night the Company will play
"Camille," on Friday night The Fatal
Wedding, which is" Lady Audley's Secret
"dramatized; and will close its engage?
ment on Saturday night with "Ten nights
in a Bar Room."
A great many persons m the community
tiave been anxions to see the temperence
ilrama, and we have positive assurances
from Mr. Garside that it will be put upon
the boards. As we have before stated
the Company is a most meritorious one

the names of those gallant Republicans,

What is the duty of the true Republican?
It is to push forward and make every ef?
fort to win, for there is a winning point.
The leading Republicans of the State of
Va. seem to be drones, and unconcerned.
I ask the question, is it that they want
the democrats to win?It must be,assuredly.
So now republicans the greatest victory is
just in fro?r.
Gentlemen, and fellow citizens, if you
are in deep sympathy with the Republican
party now is your time, for the winning
point it is at hand. Push forward, there
is a chance, there is a hope. It is my
opinion there are two many leaders giving
things away to the Democratic party. The

The wounded man fell, dying at the
feet of his wife, who was with him, linger

away crying "Longlive Spain," which were
the last words upon his lips.
Santa Agueda is noted for its baths.
It is between San Sebesdan, the summer
residence of the Spanish court, and Yitlo
ria, the capital of the province of Alava.
The premier went there last Thursday to
take a three weeks' course of the baths,
after which he expected to return to San
Sebastian to meet United States Minister
The assasin was arrested soon after the
shooting. He is a Neapolitan, and gives
the name of Rinpaldi, hut it is believed by

and that his real name is Michele Angino

The Free Silverites in Convention.
At this writing the free silver Democratic
: convention is being held at Roanoke. We
: will not be able to give our readers an ac
. count of its proceedings until our next is
: sue. It is a safe prediction to say that J.
j H?ge Tyler will be nominated for governor
j by acclamation. Who will be the nomi?
nee for lieutenant-governor is uncertain.
I Capt. Coeke, the nominee of the Popu
j lists, wiil be urged by a few, but he is not
! likely to be selected.
The death of Attorney-General R. Tay
i lor Scott will make things somewhat un
, certain as to who will be nominated for
that place. We are inclined to think that
Mr. A. L. Montague, of Danville, will be
the man named.
The platform on national questions will
j be a rehash of the Chicago platform, with,
perhaps, some of the anarchism left out.
A Remarkable Cure of Chronic Diarrhoea.
Iii 1S62, when I served my country as a
private in Company A, 167th Pennsylva?
nia Volunteers, I contracted chronic diar?
rhoea. It has given me a great deal of
trouble ever since. I have tried a dozen
different medicines and several prominent
doctors without any pei maneut relief. Not
long ago a friend sent me a sample bottle
of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diar
rhcea Remedy, and after that I bought and
took a 50-cent bottle; and now I can say
that I am entirely cured. I cannot be
thankful enough to you for this great rem?
edy, and recommend it to all suffering vet?
erans. If in doubt write me. Yours
gratefully. Henry Steinbeiger, Allentown,
Pa. Sold by J. E. Jackson, druggist.
