Toe proposed prize fight at Dallas,
Texas, is not certain to tako place there,
notwithstanding tho decision of Circuit
Judge Hurt that thero is no law of tho
State to prevent it. Governor Culber
son declares that ho will lock the
pugilists up if thoy persist in their
intention to fight, and as he is regarded
as a man of bis word it is hardly prob
able that Dallas will he the placo at
which tho bruising will occur.
KNCOUK AGING CONDITIONS.
Southern conditions, as reilected in
the Manufacturers' Record by reports
during the past week, continue to be
very encouraging. The revival in the
metal business has caused several ad?
ditional furnaces to reaume operations,
also the renewal of work In two large
iron ore mineB. Diversified manufac?
turing is increasing, and a noticeable
feature ia the number of largo buildings
planned in various States. Gold mining
is receiving much attention, while more
cotton mill projects are planned by new
companies. The crop reports empha?
size the fact that the yield of corn and
other food supplies will be unusually
abundant in the South.
A UNITED NATION.
The e a of good feeling seems to have
?dawned at last upon the country. The
recent meeting of the Grand Army of
the Republic at Loui&vllle, Ky., the
groat gathering on the Chattanooga and
Chlckamauga battlefields and the grand
fraternization of the soldiers who wore
the blue and the gray at all of those
places, along with unanimity of tho
country in endeavoring to make the
Atlanta Exposition a great success, all
show that at l&at sectional linos have
been obliterated, and that the country
is thoroughly united in thought and
Tho late war, while accompanied by
bloodshed and sulToring, haB settled all
questions that tended to divide tho
country on B3Utiontl lines, and in tho
feeling of mutual respect which it haa
brought botwiion the people onco so bit?
terly hostilo, has strengthened and co?
ntented tho country to a degree that ron
ders it absolutely impervious to assaults
from within and without. The intense
feeling nf nationalism now pervading
all parts of tho Union was shown In tho
recent yacht race between tho Valkyrie
and Defender, and while the outcome
was not such as the lovers of sport would
deBiro, the fact that England Is I n
tsnsely jealous of the United States was
fully demonstaated, along with the com?
plete evidence of national unity on this
side ot the water.
This jealousy of Great Britain and tho
many conflicting Interests of the two
nations will, In all probability, lead to
a war between them before many yearB.
Such an event would, ot course, be de?
plorable: but it is consoling to reflect
that, while the people of this country
do not desire a conflict with the mother
country, they will bo prepared to pre?
sent a united front when it becomes
inevitable. Two unsuccessful attempts
have boon made to conquer Canada, and
another war with Great Britain would
be marked by auother more determined
effort to add the immense aroa of the
Dominion to that of tho United StatoB.
Of course Buch an effort would cost im?
mensely in men and money, but a nation
with sixty-five millions of brave and
resolute people can acoompliah wonders,
and if John Bull ia wise he will see, in
the great reunions now occurring in tho
South, a warning to curb his revengeful
feelings and cultivate the friendship of
a people who aro not easily angered,
but, when completely roused, are abso?
AtTOELD AS A KEFORMER.
Governor Altgeid, of Illinois, is noth?
ing if not sensational. At the dedication
of the Illinois momument on the Chick
amauga battlefield on Wednesday he
made one of his characteristic tirades.
While denouncing tho corrupting in?
fluence of wealth, ho endeavored to
pose as a patriot and seemed to be
entirely oblivious of the fact that the
part he played in tho great Chicago
strike of 1804 and his anarchistic utter?
ances before and since tend f?r more to
the subversion of the republic than tho
evils ho pretends to deplore. Tho good
sense of the American people has been
flu indent heretofore to remedy all the
evils of curruptlon, but the insidious
doctrines of socialism and anarchy strlko
ai; tho very vitals of tho ropublio and
tho woapona which their advocates
would u80 would bring bloodsbod and
chaos upon tho country. Tho following
extracts from his speech on Wednesday,
whilo they toll some truths,when taken j
in connection with his past reoorJ, show
woll enough what his views of the
situation are and what would be bis
"Instoad of an armed foe that wo can
moot on tho field, there is to-day an
enemy that is invisible, but everywhere
at work destroying our institutions;
that enemy is corruption. The idea
now is to cajole, rather than to convince,
to ignore great wrongs and wink at
abuses, to court the support of conflict?
ing interests, though it involves the de?
ception of one or both. We are substi?
tuting ofllce-seeking and ofllce-holdlng
in place of real achievement, and in?
stead of great careers in public life wo
are facing a harvest of slippery, blear*
eyed and empty mediocrity, which
slides Into oblivion without tho assist?
ance of doath. For more than a decade
the tendency in this country has been
toward a colorless and negative dilet
tanteism, having the countenance of
the Pharisee with the greed of the
wolf and drawing all its inspirations
from the altar of concentrated and
corrupting woalth. The flag has been
praised at champagne dinners, while
tho very pole from which it 11 Dated was
being eaten off by corruption and re?
publican institutions were boing stabbed
to the vitals. A new gospel has come
among us, according to which it is mean
to rob a hen roost or a hen, but plunder?
ing thousands makos us gentlemen.
My friends, the men of the past did
their duty. Shall we do ours? They
were asked to face death?you may
have to face calumny, but as sure as the
Heavens are high and justice is eternal
will you triumph In the end."
The Baleni 1 icket.
If the report of a recent meeting held
m Koanoke, as published in some of the
papers in the State, be true, John
Hampton H?ge seems to be preparing
himself for another acrobatic flop. Ab
is well known, Mr. H?ge was one of the
leading spirits in the "honest election"
conference held here some time ago, and
since then he has let no opportunity
nass to revile the Democratic party. He
has announced time und again that he
would support any ticket whose nom?
inees pledged themselves to an amend?
ment of the Walton election law. Such
a ticket was nominated at Salem last
week, and when the Republican city
executive committee of Roanoke met to
consider the nominees, Mr. H?ge ear?
nestly advocated that the committee
should declaro in favor of the regular
Democratic ticket, which had been
named a short time before. Thoro is no
loubt that disappointment bad much to
do with Mr. Hogo's strange action. He
desired his brotbor to recelvo the sena?
torial nomination on the coalition ticket,
but his wlBhos were not respected. If
all the other "reformers" are actuated
by such a feeling as this, the managers
of the "honest election" movement may
as well close up shop. Personal gain
and not honest elections seems to be
what Is wanted.?Petersburg index

Petersburg Index Appeal in yosterday*a

The Play Is Well Presented and a Splendid |
"Trilby" proved a popular success at
tho Academy last night;
Mr. Potter has done his work well
and crystallized as brilliantly as anyone
oculd expect it to be done the dramatic
features of Mr. Du Maurler's Btory. lie
has captured and set la motion consider?
able of that esprit and frolic that pre?
vailed in the Latin Quarter while the
three musketeers of the brush lived
there under the spell of "Trilby's"
white beauty. Only the something that
is indescribable ia missing?only the
perfume, tho . Kollan chord of pathos,
the vagrant, elusive poetry that hovers
in a rosy mist over the ioya and griefj
of tho sympathetic group that Du Mau
rier vivified. One may no', describe the
precise sensation produced by the pres?
ence on tho stage of the dramatized
"Trilby.'' It is one of moderate grati?
fication, mingled with a sense that
something very preposterous is being
perpotrated. There is never any doubt
that the sanctifying touch of tho artist
has been lost, but lta place haa been
cleverly supplied by tho ofTective influ
ence of the Btage artisan.
In the representation of "Trilby"
last night the services of a well
Belected company were U6ed Mr.
Reuben Fox achieved an agreeable auc
cess in tho role of the mesmeric Jew,
Svengali. To the eye Mr. Fox was a far
mere repulsive spider than Du Maurier
drew, but his acting was admirable,
his dialect appropriate, and many of !
his elforts were oblaincd by broidly
artistic means. Mr. G. D. Macintyre
was c capable and attractive Laird;
Mr. P. Carlton a uno looking TafTy; Mr.
Waltor Tnumaa a vivid and competent
Little lHlloo, and George E. Traedor
the most explosive and delightful /.?u
/.ou, and tho minor roles wero in good
hands. As for La Bolio Trilby, tho
part was played by Miss Marion Grey
with Infinite grace and charm. She did
not exhibit her supernatural foot, by
tho way, a circumstance that is worth
mentioning, as there is an impression
abroad among the few people that
never read Du Maurier's book that the
scenes of the Btory are laid in a pedi?
cure establishment. The engagement

sooner or later, tho seat of tho cotton

The 8i>an or Life.
The play that comes to the Academy
Wednesday of next week 1b the famous
melodrama "The Span of Life." It is
famous for its scene where Uireo wiry
athletes form a human bridge, over
which the heroine safely passes
"The Arabs are upon us, wo are
lost!" (this from one side ot the king s
chasm, through which leaDS the seeth?
ing torrent), and then "No, no, not so,"
(from the other side),a linking together
of three human frames, legs in arms,
arms In legi, a fail across the preci?
pice, a catch, a slight sway, and tho
heroine, child in arms, scrambles across
the human bridge. And there you bavo
the Span of Life. It is an excellent
scene, tho novelty of which is above
the situations in tho ordinary drama.
The act is over in a moment, and of
course constitutes the climax to a
stirring sceno of escape The sceno
described is the most famous feature cf
The Limited Mail.
Elmer E. Vance's famous railroad
comedy drama, "The Limited Mail,"
will appear at Academy of Music on
Saturday, September and it is safo
to predict a house packe d to the doorB,
for the reputation of this phenomenal
success has preceded it.
The piay abound.s in comedy and
dramatic passages; is crowded with
startling and thrilling scenes, and is a
series of surprises from tlrit to la?t?
the story dealing with lifo on tho rail?
roads ia tho far West, In which many
realistic and familiar scones are; de?
picted with a faithfulness recogni/. vblo
by everybody. Pathos and humor, with
just enough of sensation to giv6 spice
and variety to tho unraveling of the
plot?and tnls play, by tho way, haa a

The company this season is spoken of
by the pre9s as the host ono yet brought

dancing, and (melodious singing always
charm her audience.
