The prompt action of the Board ^f
Trade in appointing Mr. D. W. Flickwir,
Col. h. S. Broose, and Mr. Ed. L. Stone
n committee to collect data and take such
other steps as they may deem necessary
in advancing the claims of Boanoke to
the proposed armoi-plate factory / is de?
serving of all praise, and proves if the
plant is not located here it will not be for
lack of effort on the part of our citizen*.
The committee is an excellent one and
will do the work entrusted to them well
and thoroughly.
Newport News has grown so rapidly
in recent years that the opera house there
at present used for dramatic entertain?
ments aud gatherings of a public charac?
ter is not large enough to meet the de?
mands of the situation. The Press of
that city advocates the erection of a larger
and more commodious building, and
hopes that some gentleman or gentlemen
of means will soon grasp the opportunity
to establish there a theater 'commensu?
rate with the already extensive and grow?
ing population.
The special board appointed by the
Navy Department to consider the needs
of the navy in the matter -of new dry
docks has submitted a report to Assis?
tant Secretary Boosevelt, recommending
concrete docks at Boston, New York,
Norfolk, Mare Island, San Francisco and
San Pedro; steel floating clocks at New?
port News, Netv Orleans and Tortugas,
and a frtsh water basin aud dock at New
London, Connecticut. The total cost of
these improvements is estimated at $10.
875,000, and when completed the United
States will have ample facilities for the
cleaning and repnir of its battleships and
other war vessels.
Hemming emigrants from Liberia at
Liverpool, England, tell a doleful tale of
hardships and suOering in the^bhick re?
public of Africa. It is always the way,
however. Among all classes of emi?
grants some are easily discouraged and
home sickness prevails largely. If the
settlers at Jamestown could have reached
England during the first years of their
stay on this continent the settle?
ment of Virglula might have been
delayed indefinitely. Immigrants to
unsettled countries have to become
acclimated aud accustomed to their
environments before they are in a
condition to become potent factors in
building up a new community.
The sudden return to Washington of
the Spanish minister, Do Lome, from
Lenox, Massachusetts, where he has been
spending the summer with hts family,
and where It was supposed he would re?
main some time, has started the tongues
of the gossips at the National Capital to
wagging, and much speculation is in?
dulged in as to what is about to happen.
As tne queen regent arrived at Madrid
from San Eebastian, her summer resi?
dence, on the same day that Senor De
Lome arrived in Washington it is gener?
ativ believed that there will bo an early
reply to Minister Woodford's communi?
cation,which will be sent to Washington,
and that the Spanish minister desires to
be there when it is received by the ad?
ministration. It is evident in spite of
the efforts of both governments at con?
cealment that the relations between
Spain and the United States are very
much st rained.
It is stated in Washington that Pesi

that Consul General Lee will remain in

ROAXOKE REVIVING.
The report comes from Roanoke that,
tho real estate men "are beginning to
brush the cob*webs off their desks, the
merchants to make sales anil business
generally to show marked signs of im?
provement.'1 The Norfolk and Western
railroad, under the presidency of Mr.
Kimball, displayed a most liberal policy
in its effort to build *up Roanoke and the
Southwest, and any information that the
business of that magnificent section of
the commonwealth, of which Ronnoke is
the business center, is reviving, will be
welcome news. Rich as it is in so many
natural resources, that whole section
ought to duplicate Pennsylvania. Tho
commonwealth has renson toexpect great
things of Southwest Virginia, and there
is littlo doubt that these great expecta?
tions will be realized.- -Richmond State.
SPAIN'S SYMPATHIZERS.
As it is authoritatively reported" from
Vienna that the Austrian government
will actively intervene in behalf of Spain
in ease of war between the last named
country and the United States, the con?
flict, should one occur, will possess some
very lively and interesting features. Ad?
vices from Herliu show also that the tone
of the German press is deoided'y hostile
to American aspirations and "Yankee
insolt nee," and that while the government
of Emperor William will not probably
join in a coalition against the United
States, the great majority of his people
hope that this country will soon receive
"a sound drubbing." In the meantime
Great Britain does not appear much con?
cerned as to the course of this administra?
tion in regard to Cuba, but as the sealing
question is still uusettled, antl may as?
sume nu ugly phrase, so far as the rela?
tions of England and the United States
are concerned, it is barely possible that
this government may have a war of im?
mense magnitude upon its hands before
the close of the present century.
As a rule the nations of Europe do not
admit the ?Jaims of the United States as
set forth in Mr. Cleveland's celebrated
message on the Monroe doctriue, and a
great international combination against
tills country might result if England
should show a disposition to lesist Amer?
ican claims in this direction. The posi?
tion taken by the British government in
the Venezuelan boundary dispute and the
kinsbip of the Enelish and American peo?
ple lend, however, to the belief that war
between tho t wo countries will be avoided
by both if possible, ami that if the United
States should have to fight any European
combination it would be Spain and the
triple alliance, composed of Germany,
Austria and Italy. While this would be
a powerful coalition, the latent resources
antl pertinacity antl courage of the'.Anier
ican people are9ucl that it is believed, al?
though worsted badly at first, they will
emerge from the.conflict victoriously, se
eurintr thereby a power and prestige that
would leave the United States the undis?
puted arbiter of the American continent,
except perhaps so far as British posses?
sions were concerned.
It may seem atrogant antl presumpti?
ons for the people ol tho Urlted Stntes to
aspire so high, but nations, like individ?
uals, have certain duties to perform in
proportion to their power nud abilities,
the neglect of which is to disregard the
opportunities and blessings placed in
I heir way by an all-wise Providence.
The growth of this country has been phe?
nomenal and its wealth ami power have
already excited the adintiatlon an*' envy
of the rest, of the world; but the nation
now feels its responsibilities to its \ve8ker
and less favored neighbors, anil is deter?
mined that they shall not lie oppressed
or robbed of territory by the powers of
Europe because the latter think they
have the men and arms to carry out
their selfish antl grasp'um schemes.

New York and Alaska Gold Exploration and Trading Company,
Ts formed for mining, transportation \
and trading purposes, and the lirst step
taken wns to acquire 2,0(>0 acres of land
iu the best gold region of Alaska, which
is a very substantial investment. This
company is not satisfied witn this laud
alone, but is following *he rush and dis?
coveries of the Klondike ami other sec?

to wrest fortune from the hands of fate.

No whistle blew a welcome home. No
dipping pennants indicateel that a few
hours later her name would b* carried
around the world and be upon the- lips of
millions of people. But such was the ar?
rival of the Excelsior, bearing the follow?
