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.

the fact that in 1S15 Europe was reac

whereas within a half century almost
every country in the West was constitu?

which the words coal. steam. steel and

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

to Be Here but a Short
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?
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

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.
