The astronomers on the outpost have
noted a new star flash with meteoric
brightness across the journalistic skies.
It comes from Tazewell and is called the

A LOSS KEENLY FELT.
In the death of' Colonel Frank Huger
lioanoke loses one of her most highly es?
teemed citizens and the Norfolk and
Western railroad one of Its most faithful
and respected officers. Col. Huger was a
South Carolinian uy birth nnd at an early
age entered the United States Military
Academy at West Point. Graduating
from that institution just at the begin?
ning of the war between the States, he
fearlessly drew his "sword in defense of
his nativity, the South, nnd by deeds of
daring and loyal bravery soon won for
himself the title and distinction] of Col?
In his long connection with tho Nor?
folk ami Western railroad he proved him?
self a wise and conservative business
man, always regarding duty as the high-,
est aim to which a man could bend Iiis
efforts,and by bis strict allegiance to this
watchword of success, won lor himself a
high position among bis felloiv officials
and imparted an example to those over
whom he has bad supervision that has
enabled their, to rise and command posi?
tions of eminente and trust.
In his social relations he always proved
himself a friend and a comrade. Open
hearted and generous, his home was ever
open to his friends and he seemed to live
up to the maxim that "to have friends
we must be a friend."
The place male vacant by his sudden
death will be hard to 1111 and the city, the
railroad and his host of friends "feel
keenly the great loss they have sustained.
COLORADO A NAVAL STATE.
AssistantSecretary Roosevelt is unwise
in ridiculio" the laudable ambition of the
people of Colorado to be represented in
the naval reserve. He intimates that If
they can find a way to transport a war
ship overland the department will he glad
to encourage the scheme. Rut in these
days the idea of a Naval Reserve a thou?
sand miles from dtep water is not as ridi?
culous as it may seem, or as it would have
been a few years ago. A man can do use
till work on a war ship'without knowing
one sail from another. Training in gun?
nery and in hitching up trousers can be
uiven ashore. Almost everything the or?
dinary seaman would have to do on a
modern battleship or cruiser can be
taught without going to sea. About the

The desirability, indeed necessity, o'
going about currency reform in this way
?that is, through the work of a commis?
sion or something equivalent to such
work?has become more and more widely
recognized as time has passed, until now
I there may fairly he said to bo something
approaching unanimity in behalf of this
method among the intelligent advocates
of sound finance. Yet there seems to be
a great deal of vagueness in most peo?
ple's minds as to what the real function
of such a monetary commission would
be. Mr. Wanamaker, in an utterance
widely published a day or two ago, said:
"j^et authority he given immediately for
a monetary commission to ^determine
what the United Stutes^wants to do on
the money question, and then let us go
after it and got it as 'promptly as possi?
ble." Upon this, the New York Sun re?
marks that "no mouetary commission can
determine what tho United 'States wants
to do on the money question," and that
only "the votes of the nation" can do
This is quite true, in the sense that
the determination of the general policy of
the nation ennnot be delegated to a com?
mission. Rut it is an entire misapprehen .
sion to suppose that, this is what the
commission would bo designed 'for. Its
only legitimate function would he, not
to deter mine the end aimed at, but to
discuss and pronounce upon the efficiency
of the means which may be proposed for
attaining that end. The great danger
about currency reform, when the tlnie
comes for legislative action,is the paraly?
sis of the friends of sound money through
the conflicting claims of the various
measures that w'U be sure to ^be put for?
ward unless some one measure has secur?
ed the right of way through the prestige
of an authoritative report, prepared by
experts and backed by a powerful public
opinion. That is why wo need a commis?
sion. It should have absolutely nothing
to do with the question of free silver, or
international bimetallism, or anything
but the best way to maintain the existing
monetary standard and to remedy the'de
ficiencies of our banking system. If Oon
grens doesn't want to do these things, it
will reject the commission's work. The
commission is not to decido this quostion,
but to act on the supposition that Con?
gress does want to attain these great ob?
jects and that it wants all possible light
on the method by which this can be ac?
NOT QUITE AS BAD AS AN EARTH?
A number of Democrats of Roanoke
city held a meeting there Saturday night
and selected candidates for whom they
will vote at the primary on the 19th to
represent the city in the State conven?
tion. This action apparently angered the
Roanoke Times, which seems to have"got
ten even" by securing from Hon. J. H?ge
Tyler a denial that he had not promised
to let the Democratic committee of that
city have anything to do with naming
the men to fill positions accorded Roa?
noke in case he was elected governor.
Nothing appears to delight that sterling
Democratic (?) paper so much as to em?
barrass or annoy the Democratic organi?
zation of Roanoke But it is plain to be
seen that the Democrats there pay no
more attention to its flings than if the
author of them was "nothing more than
a plain common citizen," as old 'Squire
Sarver used to say. At |lenst when the
Senator fronr that "city gets on a high
horse the Democrats there don't do much
ttembling?certainly not as much as
when they have an earthquake.?Salem
WILL STAND ALOOF.
The sound money Democrats of Bristol,
Va., have, as far as seen, decided to stand
aloof and take no pan in the coming pri?
maries that choose delegates to the Roa?
noke convention. They say that they see
plainly that the Chicago platform will be
endorsed at Roanoke and that they can?
not, stand on that platform any more
easily this fall than they could last No?
They state that this is the position of
all the sound money Democrats ;n Vir?
ginia, frcm Richmond to the extreme
limits of the State. Letters have been
received from many prominent members
of the party throughout the State urging
this action and promising support in
their counties and sections.
It is understood that tho State Bound
money Democratic committee is to meet
soon and take what action may become
necessary in this matter.

THE SERVANT PROBLEM.
No One Has Yet Found a Solution
of the Difficulty,
A question which has proven of much
worry and vexation to people all over tho
country of late years, and especially in
Virginia aud the South, is that of; ser?
vants. Since the war the mntter has be?
come a serious one in many sections, es?
pecially so In Virginia. Colored labor
has been for so many years the only labor
available that now when it Is not always
to be had people are confronted with
problems that some of thtm are at a loss
to find a fitting solution for. With the
progress of education amonn the colored
people iu the la^t few years has come the
desire to move about and to find newer
and more lucrative fields of labor. Con?
sequently the exodus has been great in
all directions?the men going West,
mostly to the .mines and railroads, and
the women to the North, attracted there
by the alluring argument of employment
aeer.cies and labor hunters,- Taken alto?
gether the women are the worst missed.
Trained in their childhood in all that per?
tained to the education of ;good servants
they have gradually departed for the
larger cltiss, leaving dismay among mauy
housekeepers, until now that It is almost
Impossible to fill their places. It is not
remarkable that they should want to go,
but It is really remarkable how many of
thenwire disappointed and want to come
back. It is a fact that wages are better,
but the work is double and living high.
Many of them would gladly give up If
they could, while there are others who
for the sake of being city ladles would
sooner starve than "tote another bucket
of water from the spring;" "yet they, sin?
gle handed, do all the washing, all the
cooking and ofteu all the housework. A
respectable colored man of the old school,
If the term may bo used, said yesterday
that his wife had to go and leave him.
She thought she was going to do big
things, but she had euough of it now and
wanted to come home. '.She had allowed
herself to be persuaded to go North. It
had taken four months wages to pay her
way to her new home and now that she
wanted, after staying two months, to
come back she would have to work six
months longer to .'get money enough to
buy her a ticket. He had already sent
her ten dollars, which means a great deal
now-n days. This is only one instance of
the many who would come back if they
could. Yot argument does not accom?
plish anything, and, worst of all, the
most of those servants who do not find
their way back are found to have been
entirely spoi'etl. It is easy to see why
white servants have never been more gen?
erally employed in the South. The prin?
cipal reason is that there 's nothing for
them to do or nowhere to go when not
working. Unlike the colored people, they
are too few to be company for themselves,
and they are rarely contented. W?> miss
our old servants. Many of us were raised
With them and, in many ctises, by them.
We hate to see them pack up their few
belongings and go away from us,not only
on account of our personal inconvenience,
but because we feel that they ate mis?
taken and are going to be unhappy.
There are many who may scoff at this,
but we think there are many who will
echo the sentiment.
It Is with regret that we find ourselves
compelled to bring-up again that sower
Dpeniug at the corner^of Seventh avenue
and Jefferson street s. w. It was thought
that the work done upon it would an?
swer, but it has become "offensive again,
po?sibly as much so as "ever. Attention
having been given it once, we hope thac
it will not be difficult to 'have it directed
towards It again. Something will have
to be done about it. It is important
enough uot to need emphasis.
A man riding an qld time century Col?
umbia bicycle, one o' the first pneumatic
tired machines that arrived in Koanoke,
came unsteadily down Church avenue not
so very long ago. He was just beginning
to ride and was not altogether responsi?
ble for his location at times. As he near
ed the First Presbyterian Church the
Century made a bolt and. although there
was a brake on it as big as a "Scotch on
a wagon." bo failed to take "time by the
forelock," and, as is usual in such cases,
fouud himsell being 'gathered off the
fence opposite Dr. Luck's ollice by f ym
pathi/iug friends. When asked why he
i did not use the brake be said: "Oh that's
only to be used in cases of emergency."
Can this not be applied to tins offices of
those who should look after some of our
rery disagreeable back alleys!- We have
health regulations. Are they to be en?
forced only in "cases of emergency" or
are we to disregard themvand finally find
ourselves in uncomfortably close quarters
with an epidemic?
Some time ago we suggested that res?
idents on those streets where the dust Is
so disagreeable should get up some
scheme by which, all hands working to?
gether, these streets might be sprinkled.
This suggestion not having met with en?
thusiastic adoption, another may perhaps
be offered. Why do not some of our en?
terprising liverymen canvas these sec?
tions of the city in their own interests.
They might strike something to their
own advantage and to that of the
residents there as well. It ought not to
cost very much to have the street in front
of the door sprinkled two or three times
a day, and that would be partially, at
least, repaid by the saving in labor to
housekeepers, convenience, and the dam?
age to property w hich must be the result
of the Hying dust. '-TRAMP."

you will promise to give me your support
here In Richmond, 1 will promise to re?
turn from Roanoke nftcr the convention
ns tho gubernatorial nominee of the Dem?
ocratic party in this State."
Thus spoke the Hou. J. Taylor Ellyson
to about four humlred of his friends,,who
assembled in Saeneer Hallelast night, In
conference, for the purpose of shaping a
policy advantageous to Mr." Ellyson in
the comitg campaign.
The meeting was to have been held in
Dee Camp Hall, but it was soon found
that the place would be totally inade?
quate to accommodate the many frieudsof
Mr. Ellyson, so Sitenger Halle was se?
cured, and an adjournment was taken to
Loud cries of "Ellyson" echoed from
aP over the hall, and Mr. Ellyson walked
upon the stnge. His appearance was the
signal for an outburst of applause, that
continued for several minutes, and when
't had subsided so he could be heard, Mr.
Ellyson advanced to the footlights and
"Mr. Chairman and Fellow-Citizens, I
can't tell you how much 1 appreciate this
cordial manifestation of your 'esteem. 1
have always sought to conduct myself so
ns to merit it. I thought I would like to
have a conference with you to endeavor
to find out what yon know, and to tell
you tha*. which I know. I suppose you
desire to knowjwkattho watchman thinks
of the night?"
Following this remark the great watch?
man of the Democratic party in t ins State
then gave utterance to the prophetic
statement which beads this article. It
evoked the wildest applause
Continuing Mr. Ellyson said:
"For six years I have been chairman of
the Democratic party of this State, and
no man has ever known me to venture a
prediction, but now with the strong hosts
of the Democratic party behind me I be?
lieve I shall win. Perhaps you would
like to know what others think of my
chances so I have brdught to read to you
a few of the letters winch 1 have recently
received. They are from conservative
and leading Democrats, men whose opin?
ions can be relied upon."
Mr. Ellyson here read extracts from let?
ters received from the following counties:
Wise, Southampton, James City, Rock
llgham, Albemarle, Alexandria, "Wash?
ington, Accomao, Wythe, Bath, Alle
ghany and Scott.
All of them were highly favorable to
Mr. Ellyson's nomination and pledged
him their hearty support.
In conclusion, Mr. Ellyson said: "I
know the Democrats of Virginia, for in
this respect I have enjoyed exceptional
"I have never been in any campaign
where I was as sure of the result. In
other contests, however, I did the major
portion of the work, bat in this I must

to be encountered, Mr. (tage said, is pub?
The foundations of the building will
have to be laid deep tntc the bowels of
the earth. Even should bed rock be

His Work at Charleston, W. Va., is a
The Charleston West Virginian says:
Tho large and attentive audience that
was assembled at the First Presbyterian
Church last night, indicates a great inter?
est iu the work or this young'evangellst.
From the beginning it has been evident
that Mr. Strouse would attract lartre
crowds to these meetings and succeed in
j doing some good in our city, but such a
demonstration of power as was witnessed
last night was hardly to be expected in
so short a time. The young man (and he
seems hardly more than a youth) is de?
void of egotism and is content ;to attrib?
ute all the praise consequent upon a suc?
cessful meeting to God. He is evidently
a man of faith: a man of God. It seems
incredible that only a few years ago he
could have been utterly indifferent, to re?
ligion and religious things; it is nothing
more than a grand living testimony to
the sufficiency of the power in which he
declares himself to be trusting. While
the attendance last night was large there
is no doubt but thut a very short time
will witness the largest" crowds in tins
church in all its history. %,
Mr. Strouse is not here to merely en?
