THEY DON'T AGREE.
A few days ego William Tatum, col?
ored, was arrested here on suspicion.
He was found to bo in possession of a
pistol, which he carried concealed, and.
upon th* latter charge being preferred
against him, he was taken before Police
Justice Thos. M. Wood, who refused to
fine him on the ground that he was only
traveling through the town en route to
Ellchoru and therefore had a right to
carry concealed weapons. Tatum, after
being released,'failed to go to Elkhorr,
however, but left on a freight in the di?
rection of Lyuchburg He was ordered
to leave the train and refused to do so.
The train crew ejected him, aud in the
resistance which he offered he got a
banired-up bloody face and a broken arm.
When the Bedford authorities got hold of
him the State law regarding concea'ed
weapons was enforced, and Tatum was
fined $20, considerably to his disgust.

the police, some of them at least, never

MR. WENDLING'S LECTURE.
One of the largest audiences that ever
assembled la Koauoke to henr n lecture
filled the lecture room of the Calvary Bap?
tist Church last night to hear Hon. Geo.
lt. Wendling, of Washington, who deliv?
ered a splendid lecture on Stonewall
Jackson. It is almost impossible to pic?
ture the sublime manner in which the
speaker bandied his subject. He was n
thorough master of it, and everyone who
so fortunate as to hear him so realized
it. Mr. Wendling *s a man of command?
ing figure and appearance, and knows how
to entertain h's audience. Tho church
was well Idled last night and all were
satisfied when the lecture was ended.
They had received full value for their
money and time. The speaker was in?
troduced by Rev. Chas. D. Bulla, pastor
of Grace M. E Church, and he began his
lecture by declaring that a great man is
never an accident and that a man so
great, as Stonewall Jackson is not pro?
jected in human affairs by chance. Be
then began with Jackson's historical ca?
reer as a soldier and with marvellous
skill and jcdgineiit presented tho brief
but eventful military career of the great?
est military genius of the nineteenth
ceiuury and perhaps the greatest of any
age within the world's history. He fol?
lowed Jackson through all the struggles,
from first Manassas to Cbancellorsville,
where tho irreat Southern lender iaid
down his life for the cause he loved.
Mr. Wendlina presented Ston?wall Jack?
son <o his bearers as he had never before
been seen by them. His description of
the presence o' Jackson was sublime,
but his vivid description of the great
leader's first battle was more so. But
through all he showed how completely
Jackson nut his trust in God. Aftei
the lecture several old soaliers who had
followed Jackson wherever he dared to
le.m, came forward and shook the lec?
turer by the hand. A young 1 ndy. a
Miss Jackson, of Virginia College, who
Isar dative of the iirmomtal "Stone
wail," made herself knoivn to the speaker.
To-night Mr. Wendling wi)> speak at the
same church on "The Man of Gallilee."

Fred Schade, the speedy collegian of
Georgetown University and holder of the
Southern championship, seems to have
lately struck a winning gait, \ which has
carried him far ahead of his rival, Earl
Peabotly, in his attempt to equal Kim
merman's record of 101 firsts in a season.
Since August 14 Schade has won thirty
four first prizes nnd numerous seconds
and thirds, including all the L. A. W.
Virginia State championships and the
five niile amateur handicap record from
scratch. At Norfolk, Va., after winning
four straight lirsts, he ended up the day
with an exhibition mile ou'a heavy track,
doing the distance in 1:57 15-5, a State
record. At the Washington National
Circuit meet he again shoved to the front
by capturing the one-mile invitation, the
tandem race und the live mile handicap
from scratch. Schade's score of first
prizes now stands at lifty-seven.
John J. Nelms, of Petersburg, Va., the
Virginia ?tate champion, witsaten at his
hotel last>y night, and he seemed very
niiich pleased with arrangements, will:
the track, and is ready to put up the very
best race possible, and Roanoke
crucks seeiu to think he will"do some
lino ridiug. Mi*. Nelms has defeated Mr.
Schade in one or two events, and he is a
remarkably last rider.

LIQUOR AT A PREMIUM.
Atlanta Dealers Take Advantage of n
New Killing in South Carolina.
Atlanta, Ga., Sept. 30 ?The recent
tanglo between the liquor dealers of At
Unfa, the railroads and the State officials
of South. Carotiun over the shipment of
liquor in the latter State has reached a
most novel climax.
Under the ruling of Judge Simon ton as
to what constitutes nn original package
the railroads have been sending large
quantities of liquor across iho line, and
the dispensary business lias ceased almost
entirely. Last week the Southern rail?
road refused to continue the business,
and has >% big law suit on in consequence.
The Seaboard Air Line notified dealers
that they would continue to carry liquor
until midnight last night, when the
traffic would cease. In the scramble to
take advantage of| the limited time car
load after car load of strong drink was
shipped from this city, one firm n'one
sending seven cars.
The result is that in Atlanta liquor is
at a premium.
