It was one of the must exci ting elec? tion days Roanoke has ever seen. The vote polled was remarkably large fpr amuniciple election, and the interest manifested was much greater than was to have been expected! There has been but little interest before the election, but yesterday morning it came all at once, 1iie i:iinu,i:ro\v.\ lani> co. oke in June, 1883. and established the] manifested Roanoke Leader, a weekly newspaper.

The pulls were open on time and the rush was confusing to the judges who were not accustomed to getting up so early in the morning. After !i o'clock, however, the rush was not so great and the judges had time to get breakfast, for the great majority of them had had none be? fore going to work. The early moni? tion. C. M. TURNER. C. M. Turner, re-elected, was born in franklin county on July 13, 1839, and was educated at the public schools Of the county. He entered the j Confederate service when the war broke out and served under Colonel ] Burks in the Forty-second Virginia in? was.given up almost entirely to Regiment.

He had no early. opposition. i - - I A heavy vote was polled, and the I Has lieen Organized and oilers Good Inducement n to Investors. A new land company has been or? ganized at Middletown, Frederick county, Virginia, with a capital stock of *:i00.00(>. The company's officers are of nortnern and western men, and it is proposed to make the town a lar-je manufacturing center. Already numerous plants have been secured and negotiations are now pending for other large industries, which will in? sure the success of the town. Middle town is eight miles from Winchester. It has a population GOO people and is beautifully situated. The Baltimore and Ohio railroad runs through the center of the Com? pany's property which consist of nine hundred acres of rolling land, and the enginers are now at work survey? ing for the road-bed Of the Cumber? land Valley extension, which will also pass through the property, connect? ing with the Baltimore and Ohio about the center, where the business portion of' the town will be built. The property cost less than $1<KJ per acre, and the company make the best oiler to investors, in their prospectus, we have ever heard of. The plan is to give to the stock? holders of the company one lot tor each two shares of ?tock held. The payments on stock are two per cent, upon subscription, eight per cent, in thirty days and five per cent, each thirty days thereafter, until fifty dol lars on each share has beenpai''^ when fully paid up and non ble stock will be issued j iot:.t. and the deeds for the 8'talhv.ents vtal to the subscribers. Placing the value of these lots at! the low estimate of $200, each sub? scriber will receive for his $100 paid on two shares of stock, $200 worth of paid up stock and a lot worth $200, making in all $400 for the $100 invest? ed, not taking into consideration the j esterday was a one, and it speaks The election i quiet and peaceal louder than words for the people of this town. There was no fighting or quarrelling, every body seemed to be in the liest of humor and the light was carrird on in a way that reflect credit on the candidates and their supporters.

Thomas was born in Mont? gomery county in J854 He moved with his parents to Big Lick in 1861 and remained here till his father died in 1866. He then moved back to Montgomery and farmed till 1870 when he again came back to this city and entered the tobacco business with Turner, Trout & Co. He was elected chief of police in 1880, and city sergeant in 1884, which position he lias lilled ever since. Mr. Thomas has had considerable experience in official life, which will serve him well in his new office. He will make a conscientious officer. ,T. 15. THAYXitAM. J. B. Traynham was born in Hali? fax county, in January 1842, and was educated* at Wake Forest, College North Carolina. When the war broke out he entered the Confederate service and fought gallantly under Captain Nathan Penick for over three years, and was with Lee at the surrender. He taught school in Halifax county and farmed till January, 18S2. when he moved to Roanoke. He was made chief of police, and held the position til! appointed deputy sergeant under Charlie Thomas in 1884.

ABOUT BOOMING TOW .VS. 'Mie I'raetloe is Dyitiir out. Says i lie Ilrinlol Courier. The practice of booming towns is likely to play out. The people are learning how it is done. A favorable location is selected; advertisements are scattered: railroad excursions are organized, and, in many ^instances, free passes thrown in. The land, which cost hut a few dollars per aero, is cut up into lots and sohl for thous? ands Then the boomer look- out for fields that lire new, pastures that are green, and suckers that are fresh.] There is nothing legitimate in the business: in fart it is downright rob-! bery. There a re except ions, for t here are towns which from their natural j advantages and favorable location, will become places of note. Even these will require the expenditure of large sums of money and years pa? tient toil to bring them to the front. Hanks must be organized, for capital j is necessary; factories and industrial J enterprises must be established, ,for labor must have something to do: railroads must be built, for transpor? tation is to a town what the blood | vessels are to the body: anda thous? and other things, such as churches,] school houses, streets, sidewalks, | must he looked after. There are booms and booms, and boomerangs. : scenes about the voting places were] immense dividends to be derived from both amusing and interesting.

The I colored brother was out in full force j and he was in bis element. He is i thought more of on election day than at any other time, and the way in j which he was button-holed by the i candidates made him grin from ear to ear. Men who would'nt give him a, ' nod at any other time were his I a mil j iars. Politics makes strange bed fellows, ?ami with yesterday's experience the ; negro, no doubt, thinks that he has a good chance for social equality after -.all that has been said against it. Tickets ! Well did you ever see so j many of them. They were every : where. Every other man seemed to I h ive a hatch of them between his An? gers. And the length of them! It looked as if every man in town was running for an office. The little, al ' most square tickets were entirely des I troy od and their places tilled with J long si rips of paper containing nearly a score of names. Thousands, ye tens of thousands of them we printed and the street-, last night, were lined with the lur* of paper. The printing offices of the city wen taxed to t heir utmost capacity to sup ply the demand, and t he presses in some of them we;-.' running all day. Not much difficulty was experienced yest" rd iy by those who liked to look upon the wine, .-uid al.-o drink it. in getting what they wanted. The saloons were supposed to b* closed, but on the day before the bar-keepers reminded their patrons of the fact and there was many a little battle set aside. Yesterday men were contin? ually winking at each other and then together retire in a neighboring alley or room and tin- observant citizen might have heard the gurgle of the juice as it left the bottle, and flowed down thirst v throa is. World's Pair Commissioner*. (iovernor McKinney, in recommend ing commissioners for the World's Fair from Virginia, writes as follows to Secretary of State Blaine: "I beg to nominate the following gentlemen: Hon. John T. Harris, of Harrisonburg, Rockingham county, as the Demo? cratic commissioner, and Alexander McDonald, esq., of the city of Lynch burg, as his alternate; General V. D. Groner, of the city of Norfolk, as the Republican commissioner, and Mr. Charles A. Heermans, of Montgomery county, as his alternate." The (iov? ernor concludes : "From my knowl? edge of these gentlemen, I am sure they will make most efficient repre? sentatives of the Commonwealth of Virginia, and I believe them to be the choice of their respective parties." Episcopal Council. The Council of the Dioces of Vir? ginia convened at Fredericksburg yesterday. This is the great repre? sentative body of theEpiscopal church iu the State, and every church will be represented at the session wheh will continue several days. Rev- F. M. Whittle, senior Bishop of the church, will preside ovor the deliberations of the body, and a very intesesting ses? sion is anticipated,as many important subjects will be brought up and dis? cussed. _ A New Railroad. A railroad is being built from Bed? ford City to Glasgow, a distance of eighteen miles. This line will connect tlie -Norfolk and Western with the Chesapeake and Ohio system. Mr. James Berry is the president. This road will be part of the great trunk line from Pittsburg to Atlanta. ! Jack Smith was a candidate for city sergeant, and as such worked like a j beaver lie said that Ned Welsh would : get'theCatholic vote. Major Pitzer the Methodist, Page the Episcopal,Trayn? ham the Lutheran ami Jones the Bap? tist brethr n. "'If the sinners willonly vote for me, '' said he, "Jackson 1). Smith will be the next city sergeant." It seems that he didn't get the neces? sary number ot the "sinner vote." Three colored men passed through the city yesterday, en route to their homes "in Frankin county. They had been badly burned by an explosion of gas in the Flat Top mines a few clays aj;o. James R. Schick for Council, Second Ward. iny22-lt An old colored man was at the Sec? ond Ward precinct with a bucket of something he was selling for lemon? ade. There was a thirsty crowd Standing around, and candidate Evans "set 'em up."' Pocahontaa Huff, as he lifted his glass, said : "Here's to the health of Roanoke's next mayor?William G. Evans." "Hold on," exclaimed Mr. Evans, "don't be too fast, it may be you are drinking at the expense of the retiring mayor." This created quite a laugh. It was a tired lot of candidates that tramped around from the different polls about 0 o'clock, and as one of the boys expressed it, "They were as dry as achip, "Their shoes are covered with dust, collar limp as a dish rag, and vest unbuttoned, they presented an appearance that would make a man weary to look at. "Isthis lemonade democratic or re? publican," asked Ed. Didier, of the vendor of that beverage. "1 dunn, boss, bout dat," said the darkey, "so many whit? folks dun drink it, but I know Pse givine vote fur Mars Jeems McConnell fur president." Ned Welsh iu the-Third ward went off somewhere and got an old colored man and brought him back on a horse. He xvas lame and couldn't walk. The ticket he voted had on it "Edward C. Welsh, for city sergeant." Ned's a hustler. Geyer, the Campbell street Tailor, carries a large and select stock of goods in his line. my20 tf. There was one of the most bewild? ered darkies in the Third ward yester? day ever seen in these parts. He was surrounded by about eight candi? dates and he had both hands full of tickets and couldn't choose which one to cast. After much stick talk by the candidates he was gotten to the polls and shutting his eyes, drew one from the lot and put it in. a profitable investment. Only a small luantity of stock remains unsold and ipplications should be made at once. a auiET home. if You Want One Keail the Following and Act Accordingly. While so much is being said about the advantages of West End property Mid that of other sections west, of Jefferson street, it must not be for gotten that there are other portions ot the city just as attractive. Roanoke's growth is not confined to any one particular direction but she is stretchingout her long arms and taking in all of the valuable proper? ties on ali sides, north, south, cast ; nd west, in this reepect Roanoke is like the octopus and when it reaches out after a thing, and gets its suckers on it, something drops. Among the prominent additions in the East End, is that of the Oak Ridge Land Company. The addition ! es just east of Belmont and south of I ie East Side Land Company's prop? erty arid adjoins the farms of Messrs. I . urge Taylerand C W. Carr. This offers every inducement as a place of residence. 11 is remover! from t ie bii-iness portion of the city and r lerefore gives a quiet, surburban home, while at the same time it is near the dummy line and therefore quite convenient to the city. The land is high and dry and has jtibt enough slope to give it good drainage. Gasand water mains are b -ing put in and new streets are being I; id out. Everything is propitious a id ii is destined to take its proper p a-.- in the front rank. It is located near the furnace, rolling mill, bridge works and the machine works and off? therefore, greater inducements to the workingrnan, as it is near his w .rk. A number of neat-cottages are going up and others have been con? tracted tor. James S. Simmons & Co. are ageuts for the company, and they can give good bargains. The property is going rapidly and if you want to obtain a good bargain call on them at once. The prices for the lots are low and the tt nus easy, so every man can own his home.
