a i,eintritt; COMPANY.
The Ri Vermont Land Company is
st rona One.
One of the most substantial corpo?
rations of Lynchburg is the River
mont Land Company. The men at
the head of it are all thorough busi
ness men and are going into this with
a vim.
The property of the company con?
tains about ">,000 acres of land lying
contiguous to the city and company,
which are within the city limits. This
embraces the triangle between the
Norfolk and Western and Chesapeake
and Ohio railroads, and is only sepa
rated from the city proper by c
small ravine which can be easily
bridged. This is the intention of the
company, and they will very soon
erect one or more handsome bridges.
The first one will be sixty feet wide,
of iron, and put up in the best style
and of the best material. This place
is within less than five squares of the
main business portion of the city.
Among the enterprises that will
probably be established there will be
a manufactory of all kinds of cars; a
furnace to manufacture Bessemer pig
iron; a belt line running three miles
through the Company's" lands and
connecting the Chesapeake and Ohio,
Norfolk and Western. Richmond and
Danville, and Lynchburg and Dur?
ham systems, and other railways cen?
tering at Lynchburg; a complete sys?
tem of electric street railway, includ?
ing aline from the Union Depot, con?
necting with a line which will cross
the new bridge in the Company's
lands; water works; a handsome mod?
ern hotel and other large enterprises,
as utility suggests. The property will
be laid off into streets, drives and sites
for residences, business and manufac?
turing purposes, which will be placed
upon the market as speedily as the
scope of so large an enterprise will ad?
mit of.
Lynchburg's- environments and
rapid growth have made "The River
mont Company" a necessity. It will
afford new homes to its overcrowded
population and singularly attractive
sights for its rapidly expanding in?
dustries.
The Company starts out under fav?
orable auspices and will, no doubt, be
a big thing for Lynchburg. Roanoke
will probably be alloted a block of
stock so look out and don't get left.
ABOUT THE HOTELS.
Ilinton Helper, the well-known cor?
respondent, who has been traveling
in the north in the interest of Roan?
oke, stepped off the sleeping car of
the morning train yesterday, and will
spend several days in the city. He
was looking bronzed, somewhat, from
his trip, and has travelled over the
greater part of three States since last
he was here. He visited various
cities in New York, Delaware and
Pennsylvania, and presented the ad?
vantages of Roanoke in sections it had
never been advertised before. He car?
ried thousands of neat little circulars
with him, printed on yellew paper
and choke full of statistics, and suc?
ceeded in enlisting a great deal of
interest wherever he went. When he
returns he will bring down three or
four excursion parties with him from
Delaware and Pennsylvania.
Arthur Henry, BtafT correspondent
of Frank Leslie's, has been in the city
for the past few days gathering data
about Roanoke and the surrounding
section for a descriptive article to ap
Fear In an early number of Frank
?slie's. Mr. Henry is a slight young
man with blonde bushy hair and
wears eye-glasses. He has just come
from the lam ber region of Michigan,
but says that he has seen no section
equal to the Roanoke valley in fertil?
ity. He left last night for Natural
Bridge.

The real estate market bus been
very active in Roanoke during the
?ast week. Owners agents and pur
hasers were all in a good humor, and
verybody is satisfied.
The market during the week has
hown largely increased sales in every
department, and James S. Simmon's
& Co. report a number of large sales.
Not only is this increase of sales very
noticeable in the transfers of property
for speculative purposes, but also for
permanent investors, men who pro?
pose to build homes for themselves.
:\sthe summer advances much ac?
tivity in building operations is
noticed, and many new houses are in
process of construction. This natu
illy makes the real estate market
ranch firmer, and agents are corres?
pondingly happy. Simmons & Co.
been doing a rushing business,
one of the best since the linn was
stablished. The East End property
is changing hands very rapidly, and
many new houses will be erected this
season.
Among the prominent additions in
East End, is that of the Oak
Ridge Land Company. The addition
just ea?t of Belmont and south of
Bast Side Land Company's prop
rty ami adjoins the farms of
essrs. George Taylor and G. W.
irr.
This offers every inducement as a
lace of residence. It is removed from
business portion of the city and
it refore gives a quiet, suburban
?nie, while at the same time it is
near the dummy line and therefore
piite convenient to the city.
The land is high and dry and has
just enough slope to give it good
rainage. Gas and water mains are
icing put in and new streets arc being
lid out. Every thing is propitious,
md it is destined to take its proper
place in the front rank. It is located
near the furnace, rolling mill, bridge
orks and the machine works and
oilers, therefore greater inducements
to the w?rkiBgman, as it is near his
work. A number o'r neat-Cottages are
eoimr up and others have/t/CS^p011"
traded for.
James S. Simmons & Co., are agents
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
terms easy, so every man can own his
home.
A telegram received by the times
last night, from Boston, announced
that the surburban Press Association
had sailed for Norfolk on their trip
through Southwest Virginia.
They will arrive in Norfolk tomor?
row at noon and will be entertained
by the Business Men's Association
At 10 o'clock they will leave for Roan
oke, where they will arrive at 12:16
and for three hours will be entertained
by the citizens.
From Pulaski the party will go to
Ivanhoe Furnace, staying there about
four hours, and then returning to the
former place, where they will spend
the night and eat breakfast the next
morning.
Wednesday at 8:02 the train
pull out for Salem, and from 10 until
1 o'clock they will lie the guests of the
citizens. They will reach this city in
time for a half past-one o'clock din?
ner, and at 7:05 will leave lor Natural
Bridge where they will spend the
night and the succeeding day in visit?
ing this great curiosity of nature.
Luray will be the next place visited,
and a night and day will be spent in
exploring the wonders and beauties
of the caverns
The party will then leave for Wash?
ington where they will remain from
Friday until Monday. The route, as
outlined, may be slightly changed so
as to allow the press people to attend
the unveiling of the Lee statue, in
Richmond, but this has not yet been
definitely decided upon. From Wash?
ington the party will goto Baltimore
thence to Norfolk and thence back
to Boston.
It is hardly necessary, we trust, to
remind members of our commercial
organizations and individuals aside
from their affiliation with such bodies,
that it should be a pleasure, as it is a
duty, to make the necessary effort
financially, ami personally in the way
of attendance upon the visitors, for
their proper reception and comfort
here. This delegation will make a
more extended tour than the former
one through Virginia.

Pulaski, Va., May 2:3rd, 1800.
The unveiiug of the Lee monument
at Richmond on the 29th of this
month, would not be celebrated with
ceremonies becoming the fume of our
commander without the presence
there of great numbers of the surviv?
ors of that army with which his name
is entwined. And from what I can
learn, large numbers from every
State in the South will be piesent. It
will be a gr at feast to these old vet?
erans to look upon the bronze statue
rf their much beloved commander.
And many will be there, who will re?
call his memorable words spoken to
them at Appomattox Court House.
"Tt^johonie men, and try and make
so\nTVn>nHvT^"r families, and
may God Almighty p^ggS!*"* ?m
of you." Twenty-five years has plttBcj,
since thes? words were spoken and his
soldiers furled their banner, but they
are still fresh in their memories. Who
will be able to tell the emotions that
will spring from these old veterans'
breasts when thev cast their eyes
upon the statue ?' J
While thousands will be there
thousands of others will be absent
ir death has been a con
to their ranks, whil
fortune has driven many of their com?
rades to seek homes in distant States
Wounds, sickness, old age and pov?
erty will keep many others away. ]
feel sure that every one who fought
in the army of Northern Virginia
would be proud to do honor once
more to the man they loved more
than tongue can express, and another
great pleasure will be to meet and
shake hands with old comrades for
the first time since the war. 1 feel
certain that many battles will be
fought over again and many camp in
cidents will be told over again. ]
want to say a word to these old sol
diers : My comrades of the army of
Northern Virginia, let us all make
sacrifices to attend this unveilin
Don't be afraid that you will not be
taken care of in Richmond. I know
the people there too well. The "Old
Confeds" will have more honor be?
stowed upon them than the volun?
teers and it isright that they
should have. In all probability this
will be our last chance to honor our
beloved Lee, and when we return to
our homes we can tell our children
what we heard and saw and inspire
them to revere the name of him whom
their fathers loved.

Desirability of and Demands lorl.ols
I gg There.
All who come to this city, either as
isitors or as residents, are pleased
with its location as well as with the
uergy and enterprise of its people.
As soon as they have ascended one
of the gently rising elevations of the
city and viewed the handsome public
and private buildings, many of them
fresh from the builders hands, and all
ol them comparatively new, they are
filled with admiration for the city and
its progressive people, and begin at
once, if they are able, to make invest?
ments with the ultimate intention of
building themselves homes.
In whate/er direction they look
they see eligible building lots and |
houses in differeut degrees of cons?
truction. In the western part of the
city the view, however is one of the
most enchanting and that location
for residences is most numerous and
desirable. The land from Grove
street westward, with occassional mi
d ilations, rises gradually, till within
a few hundred yards of Roanoke
river, where it slopes westwardly to
the beautiful valley border, the banks
ol that winding stream.
Just where tbe last western ascent
commences, a handsome boulevard of
a mile in length begins, and from this
to the north, and south runs numer?
ous streets, intersecting others lead?
ing east and west. These streets di?
vide what was once the property of
the West End Land Company into
blocks which in turn have been laid
oil into lots, the most desirable to be
found anywhere for the purposes of
residences.
The demand for these lots was such
that the company soon disposed of all
of them, and they are now owned
mostly by single individuals. Me-srs.
VT^u'e*J5."Simmons & Co., are agents
rt^?*' T*??' "Member of these owners,
fully attest the great ^mand ,,,r
them.
The Roanoke Street Railway Com?
pany have lately completed a line
through the center of this property,
and cars run hourly from the Union
depot by this route to the western
limits of the city. Here, removed
from the bustle and turmoil of the
business centers, the hard worked
man can find the rest and quiet of i
suburban home without any of its at
tendant advantages. The pure air
from tbe surrounding mountains will
s .'vivify the blood which'-courses
through his veins, and the panoramic
views of all that is grand and beauti?
ful in nature or tasteful in art will
sooth his mind when weared with
the cares of constant daily toil.
The elevation is such that every lot
is thoroughly drained without beiutr
abruptly steep or permeated with
ledges of stone, so commonly the case
i;i mountainous districts. Many of
tue streets have been planted in trees
which in time will give a splendid
shade and make the West End addi?
tion not only one of the choicest parts
of the city in natural advantages, but
one of the loveliest portions also.
The lover of nature can here gratify
his tastes by adorning his ground or
developing their productiveness in
proportion to the area which he holds.
Water, electric and gas lights, the
tslepbone and the letter carrier sys?
tem will be as completely within his
reach as if he resided in the center of
the city, and a few yards from his
door, ready for his call will be street
cars to carry him to his place of busi?
ness during working days or to church
upon the Sabbath.
All things considered, the West End
property offers advantages to pur?
chasers which cannot be surpassed,
and, that these advantages are appre?
ciated, the handsome houses already
erected there, those in process of con?
struction, or contemplated, abund?
antly prove.
A talk with the leading contractors
of the city will satisfy the most skep?
tical as to the splendid building pros?
pects of the addition, and the records
of the clerk of tbe corporation court
will show that many fine building
sites there are owned by men of means
and culture, who have purchased sole?
ly to build themselves homes of taste
and comfort at an early date.
