THEOLDANMEW THE SOUTH IN 1889 AS COM PARED WITH 1884. ITS WONDERFUL DEVELOPMENT Number of Sew Railroad- Built Dur? ing the Punt Year Hint Their Total Mileage?Wonderful Program in tlie Development or Resource*. "Bless mc,ain't it pleasnut. Riding on n rail." Until within recent years, the ex? pression which heads the column, was not heard in the Southern States, . x cept on rare occasions. (>f course the larger cities 'were connected by rail? roads,and the railroads were, perhaps, as numerous as the development, which had then takenplace.demanded ormade possible. The principal means of travel was by horses and carriages, and steamboats, the proverbial Southern gentlemen with his horse and saddlebags, is still being commonly spoken of, especially in the North, where the South looked upon yet as the slow -din section it was until a few years ago The South by her location, wusalwav naturally a great agricultural distrii of the country, and it took years am years for the residents of that section ro discover that they had coal, iron and timber more plentiful than an other section of the world. Hut wheii the discovery was once made, and tin fact was thoroughly demonstrated, it did not take lout; tor what idleSoutl eru capital there was, to lind invest ment in these fields and fur .Northern capital, and even foreign capital, to be attracted to them. Tin? extent ol this development is nowhere mor plainly visible than in the incurred tuuount of railroad building whic has been goi nf,' (min the South evt ?unco the war, and particularly in tin last few year?. To give some idea of the extent am rate at which the ten Southern States i map of which is included in the leading of the Tradesman, have Keen leveloping recently, a comparison of the amount of their railroad buildin .n the years 1884 and 1880, is interest ng In 1884,there were six new railroad JUiltinthe State of .North Carolina, he aggregate mileage being 171.1 uiles. In 1889, in the same Star ourteeu new railroads were built,a; rregating259.5 miles. In 1884, South /'arolina built two new railroads, ag jregating 25.7 miles; in 18S9, thre ?ailroads, aggregating43.5miles. In 884, Georgia built seven new ra ?oads, aggregating 88 miles; in 1889, seventeen new railroads, aggregating 128.9 miles. Florida in 1884, built six icw railroads, aggregating 1S2.Cmiles, ind in 1889, twelve new railroad.-, ag? gregating 183.3 miles. In 1884, Ala? bama built seven new railroads, iggregating ?jij.2 mile, and in 1889, welve new railroads, aggregat ng 142 miles. In is.si Mississippi milt three new railroads, aggregating S28.2 miles, and in 1889 she built four iew railroads, aggregating 1C9 miles, n 1884 Louisiana built four new rail oade, aggregating 112 miles, and in 880 nine new railroads, aggregating 22 miles, in 1^84 Tennessee built inly four railroads, aggregating '."? niles; in 1880 she built ten new roads, iggregating 184.8 miles. Arkansas milt four roads-, aggregating niles iu I884,and in 18S9 live new rail oads, aggregating 02 miles. In 1884 Lexas built three railroads with a otalmileage of 113 miles; in 1889 she )uilt ten railroads, aggregating 282.7 niles. This statement shows that in 1884 he ten Southern States built forty ix new railroads and an aggregate of ,108.0 miles, and in 1SS? the same States built ninety-six new railroads, iggregating 1,777.7 miles. The in :rease in the number of new roads is nore than 100 per ceut., and the in jrease in the number of miles built is nore than fifty per cent. In the year 1SS9 no two other States n the Union built as much railroad is did the ten Southern States. Pur ;her, no State iu the Union, unless it ie the new State of Washington, ihows as great an increase for 1889 )ver 188-1. The State of Georgia iu ;889 built more miles of railroad than uiy other State in the Union, except Washington. Another thing to be (leaned from the foregoing figures, is :he fact that the Southern States lave divided their railroad building or the year 1889 among more differ? ent roads than have any of the other States. This shows that the great in ;rease of mileage does not come from auilding of any one solid trunk line mrough the section, but from the ex? tension pf roads already in existence i few miles further here and here, to reach some new and probably here? tofore undeveloped resource.?The Tradesman. THE TOWN RIII.I>F.R. The Lawn Pnrtr Tonight. The lawn party in the Eannan lot, idjoining the Baptist parsonage on Roanoke street (Third street) will af? ford a delightful entertainment this evening. Fruits, cream, ices and other refreshments will be furnished. Prompt and attentive lady waiters will serve- Rustic seats, spacious lawns, star light promenading, etc. This will be a most enjoyable occasion. Let it be well patroni7.ed. He 1m One of America's Peculiar Pro? duct*. The town builder is a character that is without doubt, destined to find a place in American future. He is a product of this country and is pecu? liarly American. Rice is well known in Roanoke and got many of his les? sons in town building right here in our midst. The following sketch from the Atlanta Journal, will, there? fore be of interest, to his friends. Talk about a Napoleonic boomer,'' said Mr. Haralspn, "but I never heard of oiii" yel who could come up to Rice. He ha.- built sixteen young cities, and nobody knows where he will stop. He 'ooks around and sees a place where there ought to be a town or city. He has plenty of money of his own, and is backed by almost countless millions. He bays all the laud around the proposed town, and goes to work. The first i hing he does is to organize a national bank, and that is some? times done before there is a single house on the site of the proposed town. Then he organizes various manufacturing establishments. Mil lions of dollars are speut in the brief? est imaginable time, and woods and fields are transformed into thriving and prosperous cities. Fourteen months "go he started fort Payne in Alabama. There xvus nothing tb except rwo or three small wooden store-, lie bought all the land Ik. could, but the fellows who owned the little .-lores caught on and refused to sell, so he built his town three quarters of a mile above them in the valley, .ind left them alone in the out skirts. Fourteen monts ago there wa practically no Fort Payne. Now the population is about 8,000 Rice's 1 t is! town is Cardiff. He isVpendin $80,000 there on streets. He has one avenue two miles long, a hundred feet wide and la id iu asphalt. Not long ago the place was old lields. At a sale a few days ago, property brought $278 per front fo'ot. 1 saw 104 sleeping cars stand tag on tie-sidetrack that had brought people there to buy at the sale. The people were wild. It is said that one deaf man got excited and bid against himself four or five times, he was so tnxious to get a particular lot- Rice's town- always have the latest im? provements and conveniences for dties,maguificent buildings and man? ufacturing establishments with un? limited capital. Rice has built six? teen tow us, and has a magnificent residence in each town, which, of ?our-.-, he does not occupy, for In ways has a new town on hand. JULY FOURTH! THE VIRGINIA DEBT.

He was white and frothed at the mouth. He snapped at anybody and veryt-hing that came inTiis way and when he reached the Hotel Felix he was ontbSudead run, and everybody was getting out of his way as fast as their legs could carry them. Policeman Ware, pistol in hand, was close behind and just as the dog reached the hotel be tired. The ani? mal staggered for a moment, but did not fall. < hi t lie contrary he increased gait and with the blood streaming from the wound made by the bullet, lemade a picture frightful enough to niake?everyonege1 out of his way.

He gave im another -hot, which took effect i the dog's head. lint this only erved to increase his -peed and he left every one behind, and when last seen was going up toward Salem at a peed that laughed at pursuit. All this occurred yesterday afternoon. Almost an Accident. Yesterday afternoon while an east bound freight was parsing through the Norfolk and Western railroad tunnel near the city, a large cedar iw log. about three feet in diameter, oiled from a ear and 'Jell into the arrow space between the moving ars and the stone side of the tunnel. The log was so large that it projected over the track, knocking two or three trucks from under the train and bring? ing it to a stand-still. The conductor then remembered that the be? lated passenger train was thun? dering along close behind and im? mediately sent back a flagman to stop which he did just a few hundred ards west of the tunnel. But for the oolness and presence of mind of the freight train crew and their prompt action there would doubtless have been a frightful collision and wreck in the midnight darkness of the tun? nel, and shut in by its narrow con lines. As it was, the passenger train as stopped, and a force of hands got the damaged freight train under way igain and the track clear in half an hour.?Lyuchburg Advance.

The Races Yesterday. In the races at Melrose driving park yesterday afternoon, Frederick trot? ted three heats with Little Jim, and won all of them. The time was 3.05# 3.07., and 3.12. Fourth of July promises to bo a most enjoyable day in Roanoke, and no one will be obliged to leave the city to have a good time. There will be races at the driving park in the afternoon, a game of ball in the morning, and a parade by the United Order of American Mechanics. It is proposed to so arrange the pro? gram that these events maybe en? joyed by every one, and the crowd will not be divided. The base ball game will take place early in the morning before Old Sol begins to get in his work. It has not yet been decided what clubs will play but the management promise that those who attend will see a good game, and it will be over in good time so as to allow every one to eat his Fourth of July dinner before the races commence. It has not yet been decided at what time the parade of the United Order will start, but it will probably be im ? mediately after dinner. Invitations have been sent to all of the trade or? ganizations in the city to participate, but they have not been, as yet, acted upon, except in the case of Junior Hose Company No. 2. The lire lad? dies will be out in full force, and will doubtless make their usual fine ap? pearance. The races in the afternoon prom? ise to be the best yet seen in Roanoke, and all of the'fast horses of the city and county will be there with ill four feet. It is the intention of the management to make the meeting the event of the season, and no pains will bo spared by the se enterprising geut'e men in making the occasion a most njoyable one for all concerned. The TIMES presents below the program of the day: Races at Driving park, July 4th, at 10 p. in. programme. First race?Trotting to harness,mile heats, 2 in 3. Purse, $75. $50 to first, *2?to second.

A number of cable messages have passed between liere and the bondholders1 council iu Lon? don, all of the most satisfactory char? acter. The main points of the plan of action have been acceptably settled, and there remain onlv a few minor details on which further instruction from London is thought to be desirable. The cables from the other side finishing the matter are momentarily expected and then the whole scheme will at once be made public. This the com? mittee hope to be aide to do very early in the coming week. They are much pleased with the rapid progress they have made in solving the tangle. The Virginia debt commission did not seem able to come to any agreement with the London people, but the New Yorkers have won the confidence and ood will of both, and have thus been able to smooth the path between the two jarring principals. When the Ugcheme of adjustment has been for? mally agreed upon it will then be sub? mitted to the arbitration board, of which ex-President Cleveland is the head. Mr. Cleveland is much inter? ested in the scheme, and one of the last things he did before he left for his cottage at Marion. Mass., was to send to the committee to ask if his absence from New York would hamper their work in any way, or if he could do anything to assist them before he left. All these inciden's encourage the committee to think that the long-wished-for settlement of the Virginia debt is soon to be accom? plished on a basis that will be'just to j the bondholders and practical and| honorable to the State.

Some very funny things turn up in the building presided over by Mr. Porter, as might be expected from the large territory that is being covered by the census agents. A letter re? ceived yesterday at the commission caused large smile-; to run all around the room among the clerks as its pur? port leaked out. The letter was from a census enumerator in Indiana, addressed to Mr. Porter, and read a6 follows: " Finding a baby without a name that was born just in time to hare its nose counted, and the family undecided as to a name, the matter was finally left to me, whereupon I christened him Porter P. Crabb, the first name after you, and the second after myself. As the kid is from a long line of good old Kentucky blood, I hope the name will not handicap him in the race of life."

The tobacco schedule is unchanged. In the sugar schedule the bounty of two cents per pound is extended to maple sugar. The chief changes are in the earthenware, metal, agricult? ural and sundries schedules and the schedules of flax, hemp and jute.
