Newport News is now talking of

nothing like enterprise in thi? country.
The ex husbands of Mrs. Idly Langtry

The New York Sun, which has lontr
been regarded as "the great exponent of
Democracy, is moving heaveu and earth,
so to speak, for the election of Genernl
Tracy, the Republican machine candidate
for mayor of Greater New York. The
people of this country are, however, ac?
customed to the vagaries of the Ban.
The New York Journal performed a
great feat in securing the escape nf Miss
Cisneros; but with characteristic news?
paper modesty is not making any noise
about it, however much It may say In
print. It certainly has a right to bras
on the achievement: for it was a remark?
able exhibition of pluck and enterprise.
Some t f the papers of the country are
charging that Tom. Johnson, million?
aire single taxer, late of Ohio, but now
ol New York,has tacked the Henry George
movement to the tail of the Republican
kite. This may or may not be true; bnt
it is evident that matters are very .much
mixed in theccnteBt for mayor of Greater
THE SKIES BRIGHTENING.
There can he no doubt thai the times
are getting better, not only in Ronnoke
but all over the country. The farmers are
getting a better price for most of their
products, and in this city there are fewer
idle uieu than have been seen here for
years. The street corners during work?
ing hours are not blockaded by men dis?
cussing political and other questions,
but everybody is moving forward, im?
pelled by the desire to be up and [doing,
and there is a hopefulness on the faces of
the men of business which, shows that
they see something aa the reward of their
exertions anil are going to make the most
of the situation. There is no rush, of
course, as in boom days, and men with
plans that have "thousands in them" are
conspicuous by their absence. Neverthe?
less Roanoke business men and Roanoke
people generally feel "that there 1b a fu?
ture for their city and that it is hound to
grow and prosper.
"But, we have only one railroad,"
some one will say when a hopeful citizen
speaks encouragingly of the future,
"and no place can increase in population
and wealth beyond"a certain degree that
depends upon one line for all ;its traflic
and travel." This "to a certain ?xtent
may be true, but when a city's jcotiimer
cial importance is evidenced by its loca?
tion, growth and progress, as in the case
of Roanoke, railroads are sure to come in
for a share of [the business that iu known
to be there. Competition in this country
is too sharp to allow opportunities to be
long neglected, and the managers of great
railroad lines are too anxious to add to
their business to allow monopolies to con?
For [the past'.four or [flve years the
country has been Buffering from severe
financial depression. Industries .of all
kinds have languished; labor [has been
unemployed, or at .best repaid in scanty
wages; capital has been locked up iu the
vaults of the bank" or hoarded in other
places of security. The distrust caused
by the wild speculation of the period of
apparent prosperity culminated in a lack
of confidence that paralyzed business and
brought ruin and disaster. All of this
is happily passing away, and, despite the
errors of unwise financial legislation, the
natural recuperative powers of the Ameri?
can people are asserting th emselves and

their latent energies are coming 'nto dis?
play in various directions.
First, the necessary repairs of build?
ings and machinery, 'which a lack of
means or uo need for |use has hitherto
preveuted, must now be made; then, as
times get better, household goods and
other articles which necessity compelled
people to do .without at the cost of cou
venieuce aud comfort, will be purchased.
And so one jthina and another will con?

the wheelsof Industry are iu full motion
and the country will i>e at last in the en?

Tho rise in the price of wheat was the
first turn iu the tide, and with thousands
at work who have long been idle there are
already iucrensed demands for the com?
forts ol life. With more money iu circu
latiou and an increased demand abroad,
the farmer is Jrecelving better prices for
his products, and as the laud after all is
the source of all wealth, as long as. agri?
culture aud mining industries are remun?
erative the country will be prosperous.
Roauoke, as the center of a region rich
in hoth of these resources, is particularly
fortunate, and with a trade that is capa?
ble of unlimited development it cannot
bo long, in spite of artificial restraints,
before tho |managera of railroads willjhe
looking in this ^direction with a view of
sharing in the benefits to be derived from
the extension of their lines to this city.
The days of railroad '.building for the de?
velopment of certain regions aud the
building up of cities, with the view of
speculation in land, have probably passed
away.forever iu tho United Slates. Mil?
lions upon millions of hard earned
dollars ^huvo been lost in tnese selfish
schemes; but as population increases and
new demands for transportation facilities
are created, the capital ,set free by the
general piosper'ty will be readily. in?
vested in making the necessary railroad
Roauoke, it will be readily perceived,
Is already an illustration of tho advan?
tages to be gained by railroad extension.
With .a populatiou of over ^20,000, and
surrounded by u country of unlimited
\ ossihi 1 it ics, this city cannot remain in?
definitely at the mercy of one corpora?
tion, however liberal its policy. The
allurements of competition are too bright
to bo tr.uch longer neglected, and though,
as was tho case in the earlier history of
the city, tho people may not be reaching
out for better railroad facilities, the time
has come wheu the managers of these
great arteries of trade will find it to the
interests of the corporations they control
to share in the bene/'ts so plainly in
sight. All things considered, there is
everything to hopo for in the future of
this city, and that its people will neglect
no opportunity to advance its interests
goes without saying.
The jury in tho case of the wife of Gov?
ernor Atkinson, of .West Virginia, who
was on trial upon the charge of forging
her former husband's name, failed to
agree and immediately thereafter the
governor issued a statement declaring his
wife innocent nnd expressing a belief
that the whole scheme originated with
Uarnden Summers, a grandson of bis
wife's second husband, who was 'anxious
to set some of bis grandfather's prop?
erty. In defending his wife Governor
Atkinson is light; but as the jury stood
seven for ncciuittal anil five for convic?
tion, it is evident that some of them had
doubts about the matter. Mrs. Atkinson
has been married three times: First iu
1^7") to Edward S. Davis, a wealthy and
prominent man, who diank ly for whis?
key in tho dark and died; next in l^s:t to
Judge Gideon D. Camden,, a millionaire
widower cf 7"> who iu the marriage con?
tract gave ber $100,000 and when he died
left her nil his praperty except a few
small bequests to his grandchildren.

kinson, and though 52 years old, she is

GREAT BRITAIN ANDJVENEZUELA
The international court of arbitration
which is to pass on the claims of Great
Britain and Venezuela In the celebrated
boundary dispute, which brought forth
President Cleveland's enunciation of the
Monroe doctrine, has been completed by
tho selection of Mr. Maertens, a distin?
guished Russian jurist, as umpire, and
arrangements are making for the assem?
bling if the court in Paris next summer
or fall. In tho meanwhile the briefs of
the two countries most Interested are be
lug perfected. The choice of Mr. Maer?
tens was first agreed upon by representa?
tives of Great Britain and Venezuela at a
meeting held last month at Spring Luke,
New Jersey, where Minister Andrnde, of
Venezuela, was spending the summer.
Each country submitted a list of distin?
guished jurists wdio would be acceptable
to it as umpires; but Mr. Mnertens' name
was the only one on the list of both cor n
tries. For this reason ho was selected
aud on being suggested to the four arbi?
trators ho was formally agreed to^ by
Mr. Mnertens' reputation as an author?
ity on international law Is world wide
aud this has led to his frequent selecticn
as arbitrator and umpire iu international
disputes. He is an ollicial of the Kas?
sian foreign oflice, professor of intema
tioi al law at the University of St. Pe?
tersburg, and author of a standard book
of reference o?> all the treaties of tho
world. He will not only net ns umpire
but will be president of tho British-Vene?
zuelan court. The four arbitrators are
Baron Hersobel and S'r William Henn
Collins for Great Britain and Chief Jus?
tice Fuller and Justice Brewe-, of tho
United*States, for Venezuela. With such
an umpire and such a court tho settle?
ment of the long pending dispute between
Great Britain and Venezuela now seems
only a matter of time.
Large Number of Employes' Killed aud
Injured Last Year.
The report of the Interstate Commerce
Commission shows that for the year end?
ing June MO. 1805, the whole number of
railroad employes killed was 1,811, and
tho number injured 25,000. But during
this time only 170 passengers were killed
and but 155 injured. 1 heso figures, which
may be relied on as accurate, show that
on" employe was killed for every -loll em?
ployes, and one injured for every 01 men
employed in tho service of [the railways.
Ia striking contrast is the statement that
only one passenger met death for every
2,084,882 carried by the roatls .in 1S05.
and injured were but one in 213,051.
That tho universal adoption oUsafety ap?
pliances will reduce the heavy casualty
record outlined above is a conclusion
readied by all men who have given the
subject the least investigation.
