gentleman in this House with whom
I have !>een thrown in contact will
acknowledge that I am at least a very

' rale of woe" which 1 desire to lay
b -fore this body: In accordance with
the modesty which 1 claim for myself,
1 have introduced only one bill in the
Congress of'the Foiled States; and
that a bill for a public building in
the city of Roanoke, in Southwest
Virginia, a city which, in the last ten
year.-, has reached a population of
over 20,000 inhabitants, a city
that pays annually over $23,000
Of postal revenues to the gov?
ernment, yet it is without a public
building, and the government isrent
ing a little office so small that when,
on one occasion, I called for uy mail,
hearing Foine confusion, the post
master informed me?and you will see
that lam not a large man?that the
room was so small only one man could
come in at a time. [Laughter.] Vet
this great city, that 1 believe in the
next ten years will have a population
Of 60,000 souls, is not to have a public
building: j Laughter.]
"Mr. Chairman, I have noticed that
gentlemen*here like to allude now
and then to the length of time they
have been in Congress, and I have no
doubt, sir, that if I am permitted to
remain here until 1 getthat Koanoke
bill through, I too, will be able t?
point to quite a long period of service
in this House. (Laughter.) Although
1 am a new member lu re, I am not
wholly without political experience.
I served eight years 411 the Senate of
Virginia and never spoke half "Rn hour
during that tim<\ and I could Jtave
been there still, but my people, ap;,/?.
dating my silence and bard work as a
member of that body, sent me to the
Congress of the United States by
4,000 majority. (Laughter.) .Now,
sir. the gentleman from Maine has
i..i,i rn" that nohixiv has ever offered
a word of objection to my Roanoke
bill. Hi'was very pleasant about if.

?"There has been allusion made here
to political matters, "he continued,"
in connection with these hills, and
while this discussion has been going
on, I happened to cast my eye upon
the list and I saw there two hills re?

Mr. M. Summerfleld, of Danville,
