There is an Indian chief in British
America called Almighty Voice. He
must be as great a talker as Senator Tlll
man, of South Carolina, or Senator Mor?
gan, of Alabama.
It is new said that Mr. Calhot u will bo
named by the administration as the suc?
cessor of Consul General Lee in Cuba.
As General Lee seems to he doing his
duty in a faithful and Tearless manner it
seems a pity to make any changes in that
Senator Platt, of New York, favors a
stamp tax on checks,leases, receipts, etc.,
in&tead of a beer tax iu the tariff bi'l.and
wlli vote accordingly. He estimates that
such a tax would yield a revenue of at
least $25,000,000. It would certainly be
much more popular than a tax on beer.
' The sultan of Turkey wants to bold
ThesBaly aud says the Islamic pressure Is
so great that he cannot abandon this
claim. It is strongly hinted that Ger?
many is at the bottom of this movement,
and in pleading the demands of the Mo?
hammedans that Thessaly be held the
sultan is only playing a double game.
The Spanish newspapers arc always
telling their readers how easy it would be
for Spain to whip the United States if
their Government should once put on its
fighting clothes; but a country that can?
not conquer less than fifty thousand
rebels in Cuba would make a very poor
show "doing up" Uncle Sam.
General Weyler claims to. have killed
ninety thousand Cuban rebels since hos?
tilities begaa and to have wounded as
many more. As nearly all of these men
were slain by Weyler's mouth only, it
might with truth be said that in killing
his enemies he used the same weapon that
Sampson did upon the Philistines.
The report that Dr. Angell is persona
non grata to the Turkish government is
indignantly denied at Washington and <s
said to have originated with those who
were applicants for the same position.
They could not get the 'place themselves
and circulated reports to the effect that
he was inimical to Turkey. This was
not a very generous way to do, but such
things are common in politics.
Senator Morgan is not afraid to speak
shis mind even if he has to say a good deal
in doing it. He gave Czar Reed a rap
last Saturday for his arbitrary ruling and
was promptly called to order by Republi?
cans in the Senate. When the point of
order was with drawn he resumed his crit?
icisms and contended that Congress was
not in session according to the constitu?
tion, the House having vacated its func?
tions. It's a very cold day when the Sen*
ntor from Alabama gets left.
The commission o? inquiry into the cir?
cumstances surrounding the death of Dr.
Ruiz has c'osed its labors, and the repoit
has beeu sent to Washington. The exact
purport of the report is not known; but
it is believed Mr. Calhoun will agree with
the statement of Consul Geueral Lee that
Dr. Ruiz died from concussion of the
brain, the result of violence after solitary
confinement of more than thirteen days,
regardless of his treaty rights. And,

The Times suggests that the city Dem?
ocratic executive committee extend an In?
vitation to Hon. Wm. J. Bryan to address
tho State convention on tho occasion of
Its meeting here in August. It would
not only be one of tho greatest drawing

would materially aid the cause of Democ?

THE OUTLOOK BRIGHTER.
While the country geuerally is still in
a state of business depression, there has
been a decided improvement in the bus?
iness situation of Roanoke within the
past sixty days. There are of course none
of the conditions of a general boom, but,
on the other hand, there are gratifying
evidences that the outlook for this city is
growing brighter every day. Since the
spring opened at least thirty new homes
have been erected here, while tho ""pros?
pects are that before the close of the
building season this number will be more
than doubled. Tho demand for houses
by renters is greater than the supply, and
the sales of real estate are continually
improving. Employment is much easier
to obtain thau ^it .was a year ago, and
there has been a "noted revival in every
department of industry and trade. Men
are,not, as a rule, so despondent *as "they
were In 1890 and for a few years previous
to that time: .but are looking forward
with confidence to "a general revival of
business, which will brim: with it a sub?
stantial and permanent prosperity to this
city aud section.
Already there has ^been a marked im?
provement in the conl mining regions,
and that this will help to bring about a
like condition in this locality everybody
acquainted with the real conditions very
well knows. . Many of the mushroom en?
terprises started In the Southwest in
boom days have collapsed, but with the
sloughing off of these excrescences has
come un improvement in the general con?
dition, which is sure to be followed by a
steady recuperation (and a complete
healthfulness that will carry the couutry
forward to the great future in stote for
it. Men who have traveled all over tho
country have returned In the past week
and unhesitatingly say that there are
mere evidences of'progress vislb'e right
here in Ronnoke than in any place they
have .seen. There must he a cause for
every effect, and the causes of this im?
provement here 'are many.
Roanoke is the oatiual outlet for the
trade of an immense section, and in some
parts of that section there are already
signs of increasing activity. Nor are the
people here dependent on any one thing
for prosperity, and while it must lie ad?
mitted that the Norfolk and Western
railroad contributes most largely to the
support of the city, yet the energetic
and progressive men of Roanoke have
spared no effort to add to its industries,
its trade and its commerce. They have
from the beginning worked together ns
one man for the general welfare.and with
such a spirit animating its people and
oue of the finest agricultural sections in
the State around it, there is nothing but
the direst calamity that can permanently
retard its growth or dwarf Ps develop?
ment. Hence, the people here look to the
future, with confidence. They have full
faith in each other and in the possibili?
ties of the Magic City, and, whenever it
is necessary, will join hands with a will
to promote the interests of the commu?
nity. With such a spirit'nnd a city so
advantageously situated there need be no
surpiiseat the progress already mani?
fested by Roanoke.
Mr. Isaac Horner, proprietor of the
Burton House, Burton, W. Va., and one
of the most widely known men in the
State was cured of rheumatism after
three years ol suffering. He says: -,I have
not sufficient command of language to
convey any idea of what I sutTered: my
physicians told me that nothing could be
done for me and my friends were fully
convinced that nothing but death would
relieve me of my Buffering. In June,
1804, Mr. Evans, then salesman for the
Wheeling Drug Company, recommended
Chamberlain's Pain Balm. At this time
my foot and limb were swollen to more
than double their normal size and it
seemed to me my leg would hurst, but
soon after I began using the. Pain Balm
the swelling began to decrease, the pain
to leave, and now I consider that. I am
entirely cured." For sale by H.C. Barnes,

health has improved materially, and the

The president of the New York Central
last Wednesday polled the vote of 12,000
stockholders in favor of the Central's re
lunding scheme. In regard to that and
other subjects of interest Mr. Depew saht
."Yes, I polled in one vote the wishes of
13,000 stockholders. Their holdings
amounted to o\er $70,000,000. To be
exact, the sum total of the stoek repre?
sented $71,110.000 in value. This, I be?
lieve, is the largest single vote ever cast
of dividend paying stock. There may
have beeu larger votes polled, but of
worthless stock. The stock represented
in my vote tue other day is at par and
consequently that vote stood for $71,110,
000 of actual value. 1 -look upon the
affirmative action of the 12,000 stockhold?
ers who, through me, cast their votes for
the refunding plan, as a grand expression
of confidence iu the Central railroad and

that there was nothing worse than $1,

his estate footed up $800,000, and I have
always wondered what he would have
said about those who had only $500,000. I
once heard a ?xery successful merchant
say of William II. Vanderbilt in an ex?
cited company of men met to fight our
company in the old days before the rela?
tions between the Central and the public
became reconciled and harmonious, that
any man who had $100,000,000 should he
prooerty divided, and the law failing in
such action, the people should "take into
their own hands and hang him to a lamp?

was the worth in available assets nearly
$10,000,000, but he drew the line at $100.
"My experience in capital and its uses
and abuses is that the populist, socialist,
reformer and agitator always draws the
line for confiscation or seizure and distri?
bution just above what he himself pos?
sesses. The very significant silence of the
universal recognition of the Impossibility
of transacting the great business of our
civilization of the day except by the sav?

evolution ot the competition and the In?

railroad has been that the public has got
the freight charges for carrying their pro?

to the stockholder has gone down with
the declining rates of interest on money
to about one-half. This has been done

Senate Disposing of the Tariff Bill
With Marked Celerity,
Washington, May 81.?The Impression
was general about the Senate at the close
of the first week's discussion of the tariff
bill Saturday that the sugar schedule
would he reached '.toward the eloso of the
present week. The progress so far made,
while it was much less marked Saturday
than on previous ?days, Is generally re?
garded as little less ^tban phenomenal, as
modern tarlf debates go.
Senator Vest declares that the present
bill is as far advanced now as was the
Wilson bill after live weeks of discussion,
while Senator Jones, of Arkansas, asserts
that as much of the present bill was
passed over on the first day of considera?
tion as was disposed of in the Wilson bill
in three weeks.

godo progress has been lmute.butihty are
not inclined to felicitate themselves too
much until they see what policy is to be
pursued when questions of more general
interest are reached tbau have yet been
The sugar schedule, in all probability,
will excite more prolonged and animated
debate than any other in the bill. The
Democrats are making very extensive
preparations f<?r the discussion of this
schedule, and several set speeches wil' be
made upon It. The irdications are that
various other questions of general interest
will he considered In connection with the
sugar duty. Senator Pettigrew may pre?

connection, and it is certain the Hawaiian
question will come to the front iu an
amendment providing for the continu?

There is no longer doubt that provision
will be made to continue the present
treaty in effect. It is probable 'this will
be'done by a direct declaration that noth?
ing in the bill shal' be construed as abro?

bcrs of the committee are contemplating
If Senator Pettigrew insists upon offer?
ing the trust amendment to the sugar
schedule,he will precipitate one of the
most interesting debates '.of the session.
The Republicans are not yet decided
whether they will caucus on the sugar
schedule, but there Is more or less talk
to this effect.
There are two schedules to be consider?
ed after the conclusion of that under
present discussion before the sugar sched?
ule can be reached?the metal and wood
schedule is not especially objectionable to
the Democrats, containing, as it does,
many ot the Wilson low rates, hut -it is
more or less complicated and will neces?
sarily consume time. The wood schedule
will develop no little antagonism on ac?
count of the duty on lumber. There will
be quite a determined elTort to restore
white pine lumber to the free list.

STANDS AT THE HEAD.
Aug. .T. Hngel, the lending druggist of
Shreveport, La., says: "Dr. King's New
Discovery is the only thing that cures my
cough, and it is the best seller I have."
J. F. Campbell, merchant of Saffoi'd.
Ariz., writes: "Dr. King's New Discov?
ery is all that is claimed for it: it nc\er
fails, and is a sure cure for consumption,
Coughs, Colds. I cannot say enough for
its merits." Dr. King's New Discovery
for Consumption, Coughs and Colds is
not an experiment. It has been tried for
a century, and today stands at the head.
It never disappoints. Free trial bottles at
