A Very Creditable Demonstration
in the Magic City.
BUSINESS? WAS VERY GENERAULY
SUSPENDED AND MOST OF OUR
CITIZENS GAVE UP THE DAY TO
PLEASURE?THE STREETS WERE
LIVELY WITH EXCITEMENT ALL
DAY-THE PARADE AND THE
DAY AT CARR'S WOODS BOTH
Olil ("lory floated in the breezes yester?
day in nil her glory, so far as Roanoke
was concerned. The day was given over
completely to one of enjoyment and the
whole city turned out to do honor to Inde?
pendence Dn\. Practically all tlx-stores
and shops closed after the parade started
and the clerks and proprietors were all
given a rest. Nearly all dcparteiuuts of
business were closed except the drug
stores and saloons. They did a rushing
business all day, although the number of
drunks were comparatively few, and the
police wen: not kept actively busy except
The postolTlce observed Sunday hours
ami the banks did not operate at all.
Many of the business houses of the city
were decorated with Hags and bunting
and red, white and Hue seemed to pre?
vail throughout the business section of
the city. The brewery office and the resi?
dence of L. A. Sch?lt/, were gorgeously
decorated in the national colors. The
programme as prepared by the commit?
tee was carried out in the main, the only
disappointment of the day being the ab?
sence of Hon. Champ Clark, the Missouri
orator, who was booked for the speech
of the day, an>), as his fame .had reached
Ronaokej the people were greatly disap?
pointed over bis absence.
The procession formed promptly at
10:80 o'clock in the vicinity of the Terry
building and the marching orders were
given by Col. S. S. Brooke, chief mar?
shal. Colonel Brooke was ably assistetl
by Postmaster Dupuy, C. C. Taliaferro
The parade formed with the Roan ok e
Machine Works Hand in the lead, fid
lowed by ct. Andrew's Cadets under
charge of Lieut. Ilowell. The military
companies were next in line; the- Roanoke
Light ' Icfantry -?-as dressed ir duck
pants while the Roanoke Machine Works
Gouards wore the regulation blue.
Next came the carriages conveying |
Mayor Andrews, President 'of "the Conn
eil J. R. Terry, Major Peter J. Otey anil
Major W. R. Alexander, of Virginia, the
members of the City Council and repre?
sentatives of the Jr. O. U. A. M. The
Machine Works Dium Corps came next
and were followed by the members of the
Junior^Order. all of whom carried red.
white and blue umbrellas. The Scotch
Covenanters of tin: Eirst Presbyterian
Church nrere next in [lino under the com?
mand of Mi. Aminen, followed by Wm.
Watts Camp Confederate Veterans car?
rying their banner ,and Roanoke Post (1.
A. R., carrying a large ting. Tin- old
veterans marched side by side and min?
gled together in n most satisfactory man?
ner. Many a lusty shout went np from
the bystanders for the "Blue and the
Grey'' as the old "Vets" passed in re?
view of the crowded throngs. Repre?
sentatives of Wahoo Tribe I. O. R. M.
came after the old soldiers on wheels,ami
were followed by the First Regiment
Band. Wahoo and Hiawatha Tribes then
followed on horsehnck, decorated In gay
uniforms and regalia. This organization
had more men in parade perhaps than
any other. The flio department came
next, preceded by Chief McEall and As
sistant Chief Antone Geigen. The Friend?
ships were in the'lead and were followed
by the hose wngon of the Juniors, the
hose wagons, fire engine and aerial truck
The parade was very long and the line
of march was down Jefferson street, up
Salem avenue to Commerce street, up
Commerce street to Campbell avenue, up
Campbell avenue to Park street, up Park
to Church, down Church to Commerce
down Commerco to Campbell and down
Campbell to Carr's woods. Upon arriv?

ded much to the occasion.
After soveral songs, including the

Morgan town, W. Va., July 5.?The
greatest unrest exists in the coal mining
regions in this section of the State, and
there is a likelihood that the miners wllj
go out any minute. Those in the Fair?

notified that a cut amounting to 15 cents

go into eflect next week, and this, they
declare, will put their wages'below the
actual cost of living, even if they work

Their Action Delayed the Vote on
the amendment giving a
bounty* on beet sugar, of?
fered by ;a 'republican sen
atok, proved a very decided
block to the consummation
of tariff legislation?the
tax on stocks and bonds
?Washington, July 5.?Republican Sen?
ators generally realize that they "blade a
decided blander in oflcring Saturday,
when they were near a liual vote upon
the tarilT bill, an amendment giving a
bounty upon beet sugar. They discover?
ed their mistake almost before the
amendment was offered, l?ut the ptonip
titude with which Senator Allen seized
upon the proposition and offered it as bis
own the minute it bad .been withdrawn
1 y the Republicans has placed them in a
very embarrassing position.
If the Republicans were serious in pro?
posing the bounty amendment there is
uo question it could have passed the Sen?
ate. All the Populists and silver Repub?
licans would have supported it, and the
Democrats would have been compelled
to light it, without any assistance from
the independent Senators who have gen?
erally voted with them since the debate
As it is there is no certainty that the
Republicans will not vo'e for'the amend?
ment, for If they oppose it Senator Th?rs
ton, at least, will have some dilliculty in
explniuimr to the beet sugar growers of
his State why he permitted Mr. Allen to
make the fight for tbe only proposition
that could be of real benefit to them.
It was the understanding when the
Senate adjourned Saturday evening that
the beet sugar proposition should not be
urged, but the Populists tvill demand a
vote upon it, and the Democrats will de
mam- ample time for its discussion un?
less they are assured that it. will be de?
feated. The Republicans, t herefore!, (in I
they have a hew complication to deal
with'whjck wou'd not have arisen bad
they shown sufficient foresight.
The Democrats are [indignant that the
Republicans should have 'presented this
unexpected and unwarranted proposi?
tion when every one Ivas anticipating a
speedy termination of the whole tariff
discussion. Thej\ therefore, declare
that ihey will oiler stubborn resistance
to its adopt ion.
The hope of the Republican managers
that they will reach a vote Tuesday is
based upon the beliel that the'sugar j
bounty proposition may be disposed of I
without much further trouble, from
which, it is believed, they will agree not
to vote for it. buch an agreement would
satisfy the Democrats, and the discussion
of the proposition would be confined to
Senator Allen and the other Populists.
Under any other condition, however, it is
possible the debate may drag along for
several days if'not ivcjks.
The proposed .tax upon bonds and
stock- will not, it is thought,ciiuse much
opposition on tho Democratic side, and
will probably be^ndopted. The men who
might be expected to oppose the p'oposl
tlou lire principally upon .the Reptlbllcau
side of the chamber. The question pre?
sented is one that would furnish ample
excuse for a protracted debate. Much
that was said against the income tax
passetl l>y the Democrats in the Fifty
third Congress could also be urged
against selecting as a subject for taxation
one particular form of investment, but
it i- doubtful if such 'objections will be
presented either by the Democrats or the
Populists. Therefore, if the Republicans
are satisfied with the proposition there is |
no reason why it should not pass without
The only thing which is thought to
stand between the passage of the bill
Tuesday is the proposed bounty on beet
sugar. This-proposition will doubtless,
should 't be adopted, cnll forth some
severe criticism of the bill by those silver
Republicans and Populists who favored
an export bounty upon the principal
agricultural products of the country. As
nu* encouragement to agriculture that
proposition is more defensible than a
bounty to the beet growers.
DEATH OF FATHER HEWITT.
New York, July 5.?Very Rev. Dr.
