Big Improvement at Spillman's Wharf onthe Rappahannock. (Special Mspntcli to The Timpp.) KING GEORGE, VA.. June G.-The June term of King George County Court was slimly attended yesterday on account of the exceedingly busy season. Farmers are rushing work. Crops and gardens are suffering for rain, and grass is becomlng much uarched. Active preparations are being made at spillman's Wharf in the lower part of thlB county. on the Rappahannock, to transform the place into a more active business center. The old wharf and warehouse are to be replaced by large. substantial structures; a commodlous boarding-house crccted and other dwell ings houses, and buildings for machin ery; also, a large brick kiln is to be put into operaiion and experlments made to make bricks of sunerior quality from the fuller's earth, which Is so abundant at that place. The beds of fuller's earth ex tend for many acres along the river on this farm. and seem to be confined en^ tircly to that one estate. With the pass ing away of the old building and wharf at Spillman's the name. too, will pass into oblivlon, and the place will in the future be known as "Wilniont."

The Finance Committeo met immediate ly after the Streot, Committee adjourned and transaeted matters of some impor tance, among them being the withdraw al of the resolution made by Mr. Wake field some time ago to take the funds of the city from the keeping of the Man? chester Bank. Mr. Wakefield appeared before the com? mittee. and asked that the resolution of? fered by him at a former meeting be tabled. In making this request Mr. Wakefield said he thought It best at this time, as the matter of the School Board and the Merchants' and Mechanics' Bank was now ln the courts, to wait until it had been settled before offerlng the reso? lution, or rather enforcing it. Mr. Wake? field said he might have been a little rash in offering such a resolution. yet Ihe did it in good faith. and was of the opininn that shouid the verdict of the court be against the bank. it would be best to withdraw the mobey. His motion to table his resolution was adopted. From Mr. Ben. T. Crump. attorney, and substitute trustee nder the will of J. P. Taylor deceased. there were two papers; rea'd. each stating .t'n'at"ih June thero would be a suit flle* afcafci'st the city of Manchester" and the Virginia Electrical Railwav and Development Company for a certain sum of money. The case. dates back nearly fifty years, when there we.e bonds issued, and the interest on these having been allowed to go with? out payment, the suit is to be brought. Judge Ciopton was given the papers. and will take tho necessary stops to pro tect the city's interests. A piece of land. tbe property of Mr E. N Reams. at Nineteenth and Eyerett Streets. was tho subject of some discus? sion. Mr. Reams will be given an op portunity to appear before the cornrniUee and state his grievance.

The England of Eli zabeth's day hugged the Southern coast, the England of the present time has omi grated to the coal a.nd iron regions of the North. We think with amazement cf the fact that in 1S15 Europe was reac tionary and absolutist in government, whereas within a half century almost every country in the West was constitu? tional, and largely democratic. Marvel ously rapid and signiflcant is such a poli? tical change. and yet even more astound ing is the eeonomic and social changes which the words coal. steam. steel and electrlcity havo wrought. There is a new heaven and a new earth?the crea tions of modern sclence. A NEW NATION. As a result there has come forth a new nation. heralding the industrial era. Judea was known for rellgion; Greece for art: Rome, for law; England, as a na_cal power; Germany, as a military power; America is the first great nation in the world whose distinctive claim is ?at of an Industrial power. The American in vasion of Europe, of which tve hear so much in these days. is not an invasion of armies. nor of ideas. but of industries. It is the outcome of this country's vast material resources. and the inventiveness and skiU of a people thrllling with electric energy. "While Germany drills, America works. Hence. in part. industrial de pression there- and tidal prosperity here. May the captains of industry ever have honor in our eyes. Peaco on earth and good will toward all men?i.. e., a tariff, which says live and let live. The Soiith is now entering with vigor into this industrial impulse. Long con tent to export the product of our soil. we now seek to export the products of our labor. At the farm gate must stand the fac? tory. To our raw materials skill and in telligence are giving increased values. The South is now something more than a dumb feeder for Lancaster and Lowell mills. The center of gravlty of cotton manufacturing is being shifted south ward. The generation that immediately suc ceeded the civil war was recuperative, but the work which remains for us is recon struction. Finer schools. better farms, more factories?these will enrich the South and restore her to the prestlge in the nation which she once enjoyed. Everywhere men and women are allve to this fact. It fills our heart with hope and. breathes alcrity into all our powers. RICHMOND'S WEALTH. In this industrial advance Virginia's capital city has a la^ge interest. Rich? mond is dowered with a fortune in the falls of the Jame3. It was the falls that led to the founding of the city, and to the falls in an increasing degree must its prosperity be due. Richmond has a rich heritage in its history and in the mellowed spirlt of its society; but these facts should not obscure the great ma? terial resources of the place. It has ruggist will refund your money if INTMENT fails to cure Ring atter, Old Ulcers and Soros, Pim Blackheads on the face and all ases. 50 cents.

ELECTED TO-i1 Revision Committee Compietes its Work. BUT FEW REPUBLICANS ON Minority Party Gets Representation irl Rockbridge and Scott?Legisiaturo to Be Here but a Short Time. The Final Revision Committee held IU last meeting yesterday afternoon. and completed the registration ordinance which will be reported to the conventior to-day, along with the members of the registration boards. which are to serve temporarily under the new Constitu? tion. \ There were but few changes made lr the ordinance heretofore printed in Th( Times. The registration is to be com? pleted prior to October 20th of this year and the members of tho boards are tc receive $2 per diem for their service: while actualiy engaged. The registra tion is to be completed in each countj and city within fifteen days after it ii commenced, but it may be begun at dif ferent times in the various political divis ions of the State. The ordinance wa: so modified as to allow registrars to be? come candidates for offlce during theii term of three years, this having beer prohibitcd in the original draft. All contests were settled by the com mlttee, and all the names were in, sav< for the countics of Mathews- and Mid dlesex, which will be ready this morning do lar as iuuiu ub icuurew, "?^ _?_k?-?"? cans have representatives on but few of the boards. Two of these are ln the coimties of Rochlngham and Scott. In the former it was thought that local con rlitions formed this cause. in Scott, Col. Richardson recommended one Republi? ean for each of his boards. Messrs. Davis. of Franklin: Blair. of Wythe; and Moore, of Montgomery. all Republiean members. appeared before the commit? tee for their respective counties. but they were unsuccessful. Tho prevailing op? inion seems to be that a very high class of men have been chosen. The convention will wind up its work iri short order to-day and take a recegs un? til June 25th. when the engrossed copy of the new Constitution will be received and properly attested by the officers to the Governor. It is also likely that all the members who favor the Instrument will sign it. The Enrolling Committee will remaln here and look after its work in the interim. Professor Wagner of the Massey Business College will engross tlie instrument entirely in his own hand writing, and he is said to be one of the finest penman in the city. The contract was awarded to Mr. "Wagner at $250. He expects to complete the work in about ten days. The committee also has charge of the printing of the new instru? ment, and will proceed at once to have this work done. Members of the convention last night were warmly commending the manly ut terances of Messrs. Thom. Robertson. ancl others. who have fought many of the pro visions of the Constitution. They de? clared that they would give the new in? strument their support. although they had differed with their colleagues as to many of the articies adopted. It is not thought that the Legislature will be here more than a few days whero the body meets here on July 15th. Mem? bers here are of opinion that beyond taking the oath and appointing a commis? sioner to codify the laws, nothing will be done. HAS SOBERING EFFECT. Shooting of Boy in Coal Field Thursday Foliowed by Quiet Yesterday. (Br Aw-olated Pn>?0 WILKESBARRE, PA., June 6.?Last night's shooting had a sobering effect upon the idle men and boys in this val? ley, and as a result. the' Wyoming re gion was a place of almost absolute peace to-day. There were no parardes. marches or any considerable gathering of persons and the police authorities of the county fcad little more to do than keep watch. The Staunton colliery, -where the shoot? ing occurred, was visited to-day by hun? dreds of persons who expected to see more trouble. but no crowds were permit? ted to congregate in the neighborhood. The colliery is closed down as tight as a drum as a result of the disturbance there. Even the coal and iron police. with the exception of four or five. gave up their jobs and left town as quickly as they could get out. There were about twenty in the party. including several colored cooks. Last night's demonstra tion was too much for them. and they decided to leave. The preliminary hearing of the four coal and iron police who are charged with the shooting of Charles McCann. the 13-year old boy, was not held to-day. but they probably will be arranged to-morrow morning. The condition of the boy is still serious. but it is believed he will recover. President Mitchell said to-day that the strike of the engineers, firemen, and pumpmen is practically complete. The mining superintendents say that as far as they are concerned. there was no change in the general situation during the past twenty-four hours. Water is still accu mulating in the lower levels of some of the mines, but the coal company officials seem to be indifferent regarding the fiood ing of the works. ? "-"????.?_???

BLdOOY EOMMiTTEE Vi rgnia Republicans Greatly Chai grined at Result of Contest in Fourth District. (Snecial Dispatch to The Time*.3 WASHINGTON, D. C. June 6.?EIcc tions Committee No. 3 met this morning to consider the report of the sub-com mlttee in charge of the Wilson-Lassitor contest case, and decided to adopt the report of the subcommittee to dcclare tbe contestee. James R. Lassiter, seated. The committee conslsted of nine members. six of whom have signed the report. and two were absent from the meeting to-day. and Spencer Blackburn (Republiean). of North Carolina. refused to concur in the report. He will submit a minority re? port. ? It is a great victory for the Derr.o crats in Virginia to win two contesta be? fore the "Bloody Committee" in one ses? sion. and it may be said upon good au thoritv uiat the counsel for Wilson and his Republican friends from Vlrgmia are greatlv dlsappointed at the decision of the co'mmittee- in the case involvlr.g the seat from the Fourth District. " Ex-Congressman Thorpe. who has had a great deal of experience in cor.tested election cases, and John S. Wise con? ducted the case for Wlison. and Tnorpa has always expreased himself as confi? dent of victory. Very little hope was entertained of un seating Judge Rhea. but all the Virginia Republicans thought Lassiter would go. All' sorts of tales were told of the treat ment of the negro voters by the Demo? crats. and many charges of corruption an- unfairness were made. The verv able presentation of the Dem? ocratic side of the question by Senator William Mcllwair.e and Mr. Alexander Hamilton. of Petersburg. who were Mr. Lassitev's attorneys. produced a profound impression on Chairman Weeks and the cther members of the committee. the re? sult being the decislon in favor of Rej?:? sentative Lassiter. The failure of a Republican committee to uphold their contentions ln regard to the'r many grievanees and their injured innocence. will. ln the opinion of a prom? inent member of the Virginia "machine. be most dlscouraging to the members of the G. O. P. in the Fourth District and eisewhero throughout the State.
