The City Council is to be commended
for its action in the final disposition ot
the question of lights. There was no
earthly reason for giving a moment's at?
tention to the scheme for allowing
another company a foothold in Koanoke.
The company at present operating here
has always shown a disposition to be fair
in its dealings with the public, and there
would have been no justice in pushing
to the wall a home concern to give, the
right of way to a foreign corporal ion.
The Roanoke Electric Light and Power
Company submitted a proposition which
is fair in every particular aud this propo?
sition was incorporated into the ordi?
nance passed by Council, and which will
become u contract us soon as accepted by
the company. The provision giving the
city the licht to purchase the ilitnt at
the expiration of the three years' con?
tract 1?, of course, one for future consid?
eration. Municipal ownership of such
enterprises has proven successful in many
other cities. Why'tot in Ron oke? That
the lor.g-pending question of hunting the
city has been settled satisfactorily we
hare no doubt. Now, let the lights burn
all night. The penalty for non-compli?
ance with this provision of the contract
should be strictly enforced.

It is but little to hsk of this busy
world that ouo day of the whole year
should bo sot apart for thanks to Al?
mighty God for tho blessings which he
has bestowed upon the people of this free
country. There should be no man or
woman so circumstanced to-day who
could not with beuded knee proclaim
their thanks to the Giver of all Good. It
Is a beautiful custom handed down by
our forefathers, but perhaps not so relig?
iously observed in this day as in the years
of an earlier period. It is an unfortu?
nate fact, bat a true one, that, the people
of this ago are so engrossed in the strug?
gle for a livelihood that they neither have
the time, nor possibly the inclination,
to spoud an ,hour^ in silent communion
with their Maker. Some men bold that
they have very little tobe thankful for in
the present condition of affairs which
confronts the battle line of life. Hut
these very men forget that they have
freedom in all that is dear to the civilized
men. Every man in this laud of ours is a
sovereign, or, rather bo should be, and he
is, unless ground down by merciless mo?
nopolistic trusts of one kind or another.
Hut no man exists, rightly constituted,
who cannot rise superior to his environ
I meat. The ills we seem to havo are
largely of our own making. The man
j who has not some one thing to be thank?
ful for to-day is indeed a poor mortal.and
for that one thing, no matter how small,
he should give ttianks to a meiciful Fa?
ther. Wo can look around us and see
many people who are uot blessed as wc
are. To these people, on this dar, if on
no other, wo should extend a sympa?
thetic aud helpful hand. We should try
to make the day a sweet benediction to
those less fortunate than ourselves. Peo?
ple now-a-days are entirely loo prone tu
sot aside as unmanly the noble sentiments
which actuate tho Christian life. Selfish?
ness apparently reigns supreme, with
personal, ambition a very "close ruuuing
mate in the race for supremacy; but on
such a day as this humbleness of spirit
and voluntary thanksgiving should (ill
tho heart cf all mankind.
?_ TDK RIGHTS OP LABOR.
At the recent annual meeting of the
Brotherhood of St. Andrew, Rev. W. R.
Stirling, of Uracu Church, of that city,
discussing the subject of employes,"said:
Is labor a commodity to be dealt in like
coal anil Wheat? Granted tho legal right
to buy labor in tho cheapest and sell it in
the dearest markt i, what are the moral
rights of the two parties to tho contract*
Labor to the indirect employer,! ho stock?
holder, is impersonal. Ho knows not aud
usually cares not how labor is paid,
housed or cared for. Ho has not been
educated to appreciate that "common
labor" or "hands'' are human beings
With souls, made of much the same clay
as tho stockholder, with moral rights
above the brute animal or tho pouud of
goods. Nevertheless more intelligent ser
vice is expected from this living commodi?
ty than from any other that is bought aud
sold at competitive market rates Labor
to tho direct employer?the president and
directors?represents an unavoidable ele?
ment of expense to bo kept at a mini?
mum, both in number and cost, sons to
cause the least trouble and expense. La?
bor to the bosses means living ma?
chines that require uo fuel to supply
thopowei, no mechanics to repair, no
depreciation to charge MT; when dan aged
or worn out to be discarded without
thought and replaced by newer living
machines without any additional ex?
pense; machines from which the maxi?
mum of service is to be obtained at tho
' minimum of cost, so thai the returns to
('capital may be as largo as possible. What
is known as "fatigue of metal" is some
' times more readily taken intv. account
! than is the fatigue of living machines.
While many employers ol iabor feel a
deep concern for the welfrre of those in
their employ, it. cannot bo denied that as
a'class employers of labor give but little
thought to the moral rights of the la?
borer. Without labt r the world would
stagnate aud men decay. The laboring
mau, in whatever pursuit, so long as his
aims are honorable and his conduct up?
right, stands as I ho embodiment of the
nablest work of God. Tho "living ?ma?
chine'1 is the hope of the world; from
him springs all the wealth and comforts
we enjoy and to him wo look for aid
when danger threatens the nation.

GOVERNMENT TO MAKE A BID.
At the Sale of the Kansas Pacific
New^York, Nov. 24.?Interest is taken
in a report front Washington to the effect
that the Government intended to hid for
the Kansas I'.ieilic railroad, and that a
representative of the Government would
quality lor that purpose before deposit?
ion: witli the court the necessary amount
of cash ($200,000, or cash und bonds.
$100,000 of each), live days before the
The report could not be confirmed. K.
Ellery Anderson, one of the Government
receivers of the road, who was in confer?
ence with the Government yesterday at
Washington on the subject,returned here
last nicht, but was detained at his home
to day by an attack of gout, and could
riot be seen. The other receiver declined
to express an opinion or say anything on
the question. ?
In view of the possibility of the Gov?
ernment bidding for the Kansas Pacific
railroad, that is, for part of *it which is
known ris the Governmental aided part
of the road, which beuins at Kansas City
and "ends nowhere," as it has been said,
or at the 34'Jth mile post, at a place called
Hong, it can be stated on trustworthy au?
thority that if 'he Government bids for
that road, which is to he sold in two di?
visions, the Union Pacific reorganization
committee will not bid against it.
The first mortgage c'aim is $?,303,0C0.
In addition to that there is the debt
due to the Government,which is a seeoud
mortgage, ]and with principal and net
interest together amounts to $13,901,320.
The court has, however,made the upset
price which must be bid lor the two <ti
visions of the road |349*miles)$30,<J00,0G0.
1! the road should be sold for that price,
the Government would lose $10,800,000.
Should the Government buy the road
In, the reorua.ii/.ed Union Pacific Rail
road Company would have to uet another
connection between Kansas City and
Boag. That, tbey say. they can eafdly
build at less cost than they can buy the
present road for.
THE CHUKCH AND LIQUOR:
Dr. Shields has left the jarisd'etion of
the Presbyterian Church in consequence
of the numerous resolutions adopted by
various religious bodies, condemning his
course in signing the 'application for li?
cense of the Princeton Inn. Dr. H. M.
Patterson, who is a strict prohibitionist,
pleaded for justice to Dr. Shields, on the
ground that he was answerable to his
own presbytery and that no other ecclesi?
astical body should condemn him un?
heard. This is sound Presbyterian law.
whatever one may ?hink^of Dr. Shields'
conduct. It is a cheap method of dis?
playing our own orthodoxy or morality
todeuounco violently through the press,
or by resolution of presbytery, some one
who is nu under our jurisdiction and
who cannot have an opportunity cf de?
fending himself against such charges.
Just suppose, by way of learning to bo
charitable if not just in our expressions,
that it should be rumored that some dis?
tinguished Presbyterian minister had at?
tended a wedding supper, and finding
that thu wine was lacking had provided
a lar-iio quantity of superior quality.
How some people would throw 'up their
hands in holy horror and call for his
ecclesiastical decapitation'. JYet this was
done nineteen centuries ngo, not by a
minister, but by the Lord Jesus himself,
and we know from his own lips that he
was sneered at as a wine bibbler.
It is true that under the changes of so?
cial life and its temptations it might be
wrong for one to do now what w;ts per
missab'.e long ago. We do not believe
that placing wine before uuests Is safe,
since so many are thereby tempted to
fall; but we (hire not tako up nny position
which would involve the condemnation
of our Lord's gracious act.?Southern

Little Strips ol' Rubber as Aids to Loco?
Snoemakfrs are now frequently culled
upon to fasten little strips of rubber
across the sole of babies' shoes at the ball
of the foot. This is done to obviate the
constant tendency to slip bpekward that
attends the babies' initial efforts at learn?
ing to walk. Everyone who has noticed
a babv taking its first erratic steps from
chair to chair,slipping back till the little
soles are worn almost its smooth as glass,
and has felt his "own ankles ache with
sympathy at the strain, will con-it this
idea worthy'of general adoption.
