THK POOR OF THK CITY.
A Meeting Yesterday Alter noon for Their
The recent cold weather and the snow
of yesterday lias caused much suffering
among the poor of this city, many of
whom appealed to Mayor Andrews and
the chief of police for assistance. Some
of the cases were so urgent that the
mayor decided to call the overseers of tho
poor together to consult with them upon
Accordingly Chief of Police Dyer was
instructed to have them notified to meet
at City Engineer Wiugate's oflico at 4
o'clock yesterday afternoon in order that
an understanding might he reached be?
tween the overseers aud mayor and chief
of police, hy which tho worthy poor could
be assisted, while at the same time the
city might he protected from impostors.
Accordingly ivt the hour named a meet?
ing was held in the city engineer's office,
over which Mayor Andrews presided, mid
the following officers of the city were
present: City Engineer Wlngate, Chief of
Police Dyer, Overseers of the Poor Watts,
of the First ward; Mitchell, of the Sec?
ond; Fox. of tho Third: Drown, of the
Fourth; and Hudson, of the Fiftn.
After a conference of half an hour or
more a system was devised by which,
with the co operation of the mayor and
chief of police, tho overseers of the poor
will provide food and fuel for such per?
sons as arc actually in need of assistance.
The prompt action of the mayor and
chief of police in this matter id highly
commendable and substantial benefits to
the suffering poor of the city are sure to
follow their hearty co-operation with the
overseers of the several wards of the city
in their measure of relief.

THE ATTORNEY GENERALSHIP.
The Richmond correspondent of tht
Petersburg Index-Appeal in that papei of
yesterday says: The contest, over the nom?
ination of the Democrats for attorney
general is likely to be as interesting as
that for the gubernatorial nomination.
In fact, strange as it may appear, the
nominee for governor may be practically
chosen as the result, of the other contest.
There will Im?, perhaps, a dozen candidates
for attorney-general, among them Major
Scott, the incumbent; .lodge Rhea, of
Bristol; Win. A. .T. Montague, of Dan?
ville; Major F. R. Lassiter, of Peters?
burg; Gen. George .1. Hundley, of Ame?
lia; II. V. Btrayer, of Rockingham, and
HE LOST A FORTUNE.
Or, "Tliere Are Momenta When One Wants
t<> Ik Alone,"
A middle sized man, with a gray
mustache and a red tie hitched up on
his collar, walked through the restau?
rant, nodding to acquaintances here and
thery. As ho stopped at the cashier's
desk a man who was seated at a table
noticed him, aud, leaning across to his
vie-a-vis, said, "Captain S-, United
Status postal inspector and grand official
catcher of green goods men."
"Yes?" with interest from the man
across the table.
"Sure. I have always regarded him |
with a peculiar affection. Heeamu very
near making mo a rich man once?in
fuct, almost, made a wealthy citizon of
me?dp well to dp. tlmt I won hi nuver
have had to work again. "
"How was that?" with a shade of
"This way: About a year ago the
captain superintended a grand haul of
green goods men. The firm which be
raided was tho largest, perhaps, in the
country aud had unlimited capital.
They had packages of good money to
catch suckers with, and this money,
amounting to over $150,000, was cap?
tured and placed in a big satchel by the
captain. I called on him for details of
the story that afternoon. Ho was nlouci
in the office. There were three of us?
tho captain, myself and tho satchel. Ho
opened the satchol and showed me
wealth beyond my wildest dreams. J
hated to loave tho beautiful vision."
And the narrator sighed deeply.
"Well," said his friend, "I don't see
how that was anything like making yon
a rich man."
"You don't? Well, let mo toll you
this: If the captain had turned his back
for just six seconds I would have been
a rich man immediately. Rut ho never
turned, ami I had to go away again as
poor as when I came."
Aud with another bitter, heartrending
sigh ho watched tho inspector stroll out

it into praise, and wo may be pleased

softly spoken lie, the amiable fallacy,
the patriotic 1 io of the historian, tho
provident lie of the politician, the zeal?

of tho friend and tho careless lie of each
