The proposed new tariff has already had
the elTect of raising the price of sugar,

this was of course to have been expected.

While the Spaniards are claiming that
the war In Cuba'is almost over, the pa?
triots have shown up In large numbers
near Havana ?and the sound of hostile
guns is again becoming familiar tc the
people of that city. Spain evidently has
an immense contrnct on baud in the sub?
jugation of the island.
The Republicans of the. House are pro
ceding rapidly with the new tariff bill
and hope to take the final vote on the
measure by the last of this month. The
Senitte, however, will have to be beard
from and its progress through that body
will probably not be near so rapid. The
general disposition of the opposition,
however, seems to be to give the Republi?
cans a chance to test the aliened benefits
of a protective tariff, and then if it does
not bring the promised relief to hold
them strictly responsible for the fa'lure.
Prosperity is what the people want "now

an iota of [Democracy left "since be ran

-Morgan syndicate, that made [$20,000,COO
by the bond deal, controls the Southern
Railway. Carlisle as secretary permitted
that deal and now becomes the general
counsel of the Morgan railway property..
Thomas Jefferson 'defeated and damned

Federal judge was subservience to corpo?

STAY IN VIRGINIA.
A very sensible article on the ?"Dakota
fever" is published elsewhere in The
Times, and it is hoped the tree and piain
statements therein made will receive care?
ful perusal and thoughtful consideration
After nlludimr to the fact that agents of
some of the large Northern railroads "arc
traveling through this section, endeavor?
ing to work up excitement in regard to
the Dakotas, '?Paulus'' wonders how a
Virginian with a farm lot his own and
enough to carry on a year's business ahead
should ever desire to emigrate to North
or South Dakota. The advantages ol
this State arc so much greater than those
of the bleak and inhospitable -Northwest
that all who nre acquainted with exist?
ing conditions cannot fail to endorse the
claims set forth by Paulus.
First, the climate of old Virginia can?
not be excelled by any count1*)' on the
globe, either in tropical, sub tropical or
temperate zones. Then, again, the soil,
while not rich everywhere in the State,is,
even in the poorest localities, susceptible
of easy improvement; so much so that,
when the nearness to market i-. consider
ed. and the facilities for transportation
taken into account, the advantages even
of the poorest portions "of Virginia can
easilv be made to equal those of the most
favored parts of Dakota or any other
The man who goes 'Vest with bis fam?
ily must expect as a rule for himself and
them to lead a life of hardship and ex?
posure. In overcoming the roiichness of
nature all their energies wlU"hnvo to ho
expended, leaving but little time "for It he
education of their children and few COin
Jorts for any of the'famliy. It may hap
pen in the'course of time that the land
settled upon as a homestead or purchased
from the railroad'companies will become
valuable: but the head of the family will
be too old to enjoy the results of his toll
and enterprise, while the probabilities are
that owing to lack of education and cul?
ture, the younger members will not be in
a position to reap'any solid comfort or
satisfaction from the independence finally
secured at such a tremendous sacrifice.
Many men who have gone West and
finally succeeded In gaining a competency
will frankly admit that ifj they ' had re
nminedMu Virginia and exercised the
same thrift and energy they | would have
done as well if not much better pecuni?
arily, while in the enjoyment of the real
comforts of life [all the advantags were
on the side of the home'which they aban?
doned. The fierce cold of the Northwest,
where the terrible blizzard reigns supreme
a large part ot the year, is enough of
itself to deteriuino*the undecided citizcu !
ol this Sca^e to remain at home; but
when tte spring begins, it brings along
with the budding trees and .succulent
grasses the deadly cyclone, which is liable
at any time to sweep down upon the set?
tler, and In a few moments destroy the
labor and accumulations of years, along
with the lives of one or idl of his family.
Here in Virginia we have no such
dreadful visitations. The spring with its
genial sunshine nnd balmy breezes comes
with smiles and not with frowns. The
farmer plants his crops, and, if he culti?
vates them properly, he is sure to reap
his reward. No plague of grasshoppers
is liable to eat up everything green upon
his farm, and no extended drouth is a
constant menace to his success. All tho
grains, grasses, fruits and vegetables of
the temperate zone will grow in profusion
in Virginia, if given the needed attention.
Here man and beast reach their highest
state of physical development; while, in?
tellectually, as the past history of the
State shows, the men of Virginia are the
peers of the best minds anywhere else in
Tht soclni conditions, too, cannot be ex?
celled. The church and the school house
stand side by side, and morality and cul?
ture go hand In hand. The creeks, rivers
and bays abound in fish aud oysters. The
lands are well timbered, and the mineral
wealth practically inexhaustahle. All
that a man needs is an ^ordinary start ic
life and a due exercise of judgment and
energy to build up for himself a home of
comfort and culture. In the Wesc and
Northwest the struggle for [existence is a
hard one, and the resultant condition Ic a
great overestimate of the power of the
almighty dollar in contributing to stand?
ing and respectability. In Virginia a man [
may not have a dollar to his credit, but, 1
if he is honorable anil honest, he will he
measured at his true worth alongside of
his rich and more successful neighbor.
Let the great railroad corporations send
their gilded conches here to catch the un?
wary with'their fairy tales of promise; but
do not be deceived by wdiat they say or
show. Stay at home and help develop
the resources of our beloved State, and as
soon as possible let us send agents to the
Northwest with books descriptive of our
climate1 and productions. Then instead
of Virginians going to Dakota, thousands
of strong and enterprising men from that
aud other Northwestern States will he
pouring'tnto Virginia in search of homes.
THE DAKOTA FEVER.
To the. Editor of The Times: JA gents of |
some of the large Western roads have
been in this section for 'sotpe time work
j Ing up an excitement for the Dakotas.
We. truly wonder how a Virginian, born
to the manor, can leave this State to take
up his residence in the Wild West,. We
can excuse a man leaving who did not
make a KUCCCS8 in t Iiis sect ion ; but people
owning farms in fee simple mid with
money enough to carry on a year s busi?
ness should think t wice before leaving the
'(lid Iloniinion. Neither North Dakota
nor South Dakota can compare with Vir
ginia in regard to climate,, fruit and eal
tle raising, markets and home comforts
Do not lie deceived by the wonderful .-tu
rles told by agents and by the exhibits
roaming over the country. Virginia is a
good enough Slate for nnybody, and the
pastii -. leav ing will, in less than twelve
months time, regret the move they are
contemplating now. There is no pari of j
llie United States better than ours. The
Shenandoah Valley, the great Valley of
Virginia and the Piedmont section are
among the diamonds of (loo's workman?
ship. Wo offer a better soc ial life than
any of the Western States. We have more
j comfort anil better schools than t he Da?
kotas. We have no blizzards or cyclone-,
and,considering all,we can and should ho
proud to uphold the fair name of Vir
; ginia. and true patriotism should make
ii . stand hy^iie country where i he cradle
hi our ancestors stpod, where the soil is
--ati united with the blood of your ances
tots. We all should stand by the State
which is the mother of liberty, and which
rises in new glory from the ashes to pros?
perity. No Western State affords greater
Dppcrtuuities than this; but if tho deceit
ed people will go to work with as much .
energy as they will have to use in the
West, this country of otirs will be the
paradise in less time than it takes to get I
accustomed to Western, life. Therefore I
don't be in a IltlrrV to leave Virginia.
Think what sufferings your wife and sis
(er will have to stand and remember that
tho chances of your children will never
come up so high in the Wcsl as in the I
Southland, the dear homo. Star in Vir?

As a short review of the history of
Company "G," may interest the readers
of this column, it is presented iu the fol?
The Hoauokc Bight Infantry was or?
ganized on the lith Uay of April. 1880,
with forty-live members. The following
commissioned officers were elected: S.
S. Brooke, captain; (Mr. Brooke held a
captain's commission in the Confederate
nrmy and is present commandent of the
Watts Camp Confederate Veterans.)
Charles Lyle, first lieutenant, and B.
A. Rives,.second lieutenant Since the
organization six different captains have
commanded the company. The present
corps of officers is as follows:
Captain, B. F. Hatcher; first lieuten?
ant, G. H. Bentley; second lieutenant, .1.
W. Hancock: first serueant, W. R. Knitle
by; second sergeant, W. H. B. Boving;
third sergeant, Gcocb Vaughn; fourth
sergeant. A. B. Wiikenson: fifth ser?
geant, C. M. Bpeece: quartermaster ser?
geant, Harry Frey: first corporal,
Thomas W. Gilnier, second corporal,
Arou McClelland; third corporal, Jno.
Briz/.ie: fourth corporal, W. W. Hanson.
The company has furnished four staff and
two field officers for the the Second Regi?
ment, to which it is attached. It has
also responded to calls on seven different
occasions in aid ol the. civil authorities.
It has participated in numerous celebra?
tions of various kinds, among the in'.st
prominent of which are the sham battle
of North Point, in Baltimore, iu 1880,
the unveiling of the Jackson monument
at Lexington in ".II, and the Confederate
reunion at Richmond m 1Mb? This is
an excellent record, and well worth the
effort of each individual member to main?
tain this high standing.
Owing to the small number of men
present last Monday niuht, the drill was
held at the armory instead of the Market
square, as was intended. Only twenty
men answered to the roll call, the small?
est number present since moving in the
new armory. The detachment was
commanded by ('apt. Hatcher and Lieut.
Hancock. The article on "attendance
at drills" in last Sunday's Times did not
seem to have the desired effect.
Quite an linnrovcment has been made
in the armory by the moving of the room
occupied by the quartermaster to the east
side of the holding. Th's gi\es more floor
space and Improves the appearance ef
the room wonderfully.
Tt. is rumored that the cap now worn
by the regtiar armv and State troops
w'll iu the near future be changed. Gen?

RESOLUTIONS OF RESPECT.
"Whereas it has pleased thts Divine
Chancellor in His inscrutable wisdom to
roinovo frotn our midst our friend and
brother, Jno. A. Woody, who fill asleep
on the ? day of Mureh, R*U7, and
"Whereas, we desire to make some fit?
ting record of our appreciation of tho
many virtues of our deceased brother.
Ue it resolved, by Osceola Lodge, Xo.
?17, Knights of Pythias, at Roanoke, Vu.,
in regular convention assembled:
That In the death of Brother Woody
the city of Roanoke has lost an honest,
upright citizen, this lodge a faithful,
loyal and conscientious member, and
the members of this lodge u firm, warm?
hearted friend aud brother. True to
every trust, loyal to every duty, cpiiet
and unassuming in his manners, gentle
and kind in his treatment of otheis, full
of charity for the frailties of humanity,
he was loved, honored and respected by
all who knew him. Aud in his death his
family have been bereft- of a lovinu hus?
band and a gen nous father whose loss
none but they can fully realize.
Resolved further, That we tender to
the family of our deceased brother that
warm-hearted, tender sympathy in the
hour of their sorrow that our order so
faithfully'teaches, and as a further mark
of respect, that the usual badge of
mourning be displayed upon the altar of
this lodge aud worn by its members for
thirty days. That these resolutions be
spread upon our records and that a copy
be suitably engrossed and delivered to the
family under seal of this lodge and a fur?
ther copy be furnished to the daily press
