The three gentlemen appointed to j assess the value of property within the city limits of Roanoke have at last completed their labors, and the result, which is a most gratifying one, is now given to the public. No town in Virginia, nor indeed in the whole country, can show such a remarkable increase in values during the past live years. This increase is due to a steady, constant and perma? nent growth. There is not hin- of the boom about if as many people, notso fortunate as to reside here,would like to prove.

Yesterday morning the attention of several railroad men and twice as many women, was attracted by a lit? tle boy near Brick Row, running to and fro frantically on the bank of Trout Run Sewer, and bawling im? mensely. Thinking that perhaps a ronipanion had fallen in and was in danger of being drowned, they rushed to the lamenting individual," only to find that the little follow's grief cen? tered on a small dog of his which was takiuga casual swim to get cooled off.

Well there are fewer loungers about the coridors of the Roanoko hotels than in any place 1 ever visited," said Mr. George Saie to a Times man yesterday. "Ever; body seems to have business to attend to, and no time to sit around. It was one of the first things that 1 remarked on coming to Roanoke. Don't you know that hotel coridors is a good pulse of the business activity of a place. J f you see the lobby crowded all day with loungers, you may put t down with a good deal of accuracy that the city is not ffoarishing to any considerable extent. If this rule holos true then Roanoke must be a pretty lively place. It was supper time at Marshall's Cafe, and there were a dozen people in the dining room when some one made a remark to the elrect that he would like to know what a census enumerator looked like, anyhow. "Couldn't say," answered Counci man McConnell, "because I haven't seen one jet." "Same here,'' said George Houstoi the big railroad contractor, "and I won't either, for I'm going to Nc York tonight." "No one has come to see me, chimed in Colonel Haas, of the Wes End furnace, "and so I couldn't de: cribe him." "Three or four people in our office,'1 said Miles Moore, the engineer, "and all of them say they haven't been enumerated. Neither have I." "No one has been to our place yet," remarked John Green, of J. R. Green A' Co., "and there are about fifteen people there." "1 saw one," said a quiet young man at the end of the table.and every? body turned to look at the man who had seen a census enumerator. "What did he look like."was asked, breathlessly. "Uh, he had a big black book under his arm and smoked a cigarette. Bur be didn't say anything to me." Then the TIMES man made a canva I if the room and discovered that no' one person there had been enum erated Comment, of course, is unnecec ? sary. Another Komarkablo Caver? Dixeov crcd Down the Shenandoah Val? ley. Messrs. Cainmack Sc Decker, of this city, proprietors of the Shenandoa'u Lime Works at Strasburgh Junction, Virginia, were informed this morning by Mr. George E. Decker, manager of the works, of the discovery of a large cave in the quarry in which they were working, The first opening into the cave was made on Monday, but considerable work was necessary before the-real character of the find could bo deter? mined. Yesterday, however, the last of the small openings was passed, and the exploring party found themselves in a series of large chambers stretch? ing out several hundred feet, and at least a hundred yards beneath the surface of the earth. Stalactities and stalagmites abound in the most beau? tiful variety, the staglamitic forma? tions being especially wonderful. ).n one of the chambers, a long, sloping 'edge of rock leads to an impassable ravine, down which a lighted ball of iampwlcksaturated with alcohol was seen to fall for seconds, being finally i lost to view without seeming todiave reached the bottom of the abyss. The 1 large chambers discovered, seemed to i be connected bya number of long cor ridors thickly filled with hanging and | upgrowing formations; In places the j vaulted roof of the largest chamber was so far overhead, as to lie invisible in the light afforded by the caudles.

Big doing and Roanoke's history. The plethoric state of trade is evidence su? preme of a constant advance to wealth in our midst and our citizens do not go away for investments. The varied and often mammoth scale upon which our great industries and railroads are conducted; the two new railroads to be herein so short ;>. time; another steel piant- now nearly complete. altogether employing thousands of tuen, give to Roanoke a guarantee of prosperity in the future, as the pa t, beyond the conception of those,interested parties who try vain? ly (if so industriously') to boom tome other less favored place. Churches, schools, charitable institutions, pro? fessional men, etc., to suit all classes and tastes. Roanoke extend-; her hand to all who may desire to come to her. She, however,does not guarantee to care for the idle or impecunious more than does other places, and pocket change will be found as desirable within her borders as elsewhere,and particularly to those who are afraid of soiling their hands.?R.

At this point the attention of the audience was called to the fact that twenty of Mr. Tillman's supporters had their hands on their pistols. Al this an? nouncement there was the greatesi confusion.
