One Advocates Unit a Public Meeting
be Hold to DImumh tue Matter, An?
other that ttic City llorrow the
Koiicjr (tin! do i'ermiuiciit Work.
The people in all parts of the city
i are exercised over the sanitary ques?
tion and urge that ft is a matter of
vast importance; inasmuch as the
health of the place is involved,
The need of a more thorough sew?
erage system is what is heard from
everyone, and a great many go sol
far as to emphatically assert that
it is the duty of the council to borrow j
the requisite amount of funds if they!
have not got it in the treasury.
In speaking of tl" matter to a
Times reporter yesterday, a promi
oeni citizen said :
"Do 1 think the city needs more at?
tention sanitarily? Why, most as?
suredly. But here is The trouble.
RoanoVe has been pegging away so
long in this matter and accomplish?
ing so little, that it is time to put down
-oiue sort of permanent improvement
?f this description. This- will cost
money, and they say they can't
afford it. What's to bo done? It
strikes me that it conld readily be
borrowed, bur they don't seem to he
taking any steps in that direction,
and, for all 1 know, that may be im?
practicable. I don't know as much
about the municipal government as
those in charge; but 1 do know that
the city is sadly in need of additional
drainage, and that ? is one of the
most important considerations before
our people.
Another gentleman said: "There is
a law, I am told, in the city ordin?
ances, forbidding parties to allow
waste water to run inio a street when
it accumulates there and is liable to
become unhealthy. .Now, if waste
water runs from a yard to the street
and accumulates, rain water will
necessarily run there also. It strikes
me that, however obedient one is to
that law, he will have to prove that
the niud-hole is composed or rain?
water, or get fined. And the rain?
water becomes as unwholesome .an
any other kind. So the only remedy
is to put in sewers, and that can't be
! done too quickly, either, in my opin
I ion. to insure the health of the place.'1
In speaking to another gentleman,
who is a prominent property holder,
he said:
"The best thing to do is to call a
public meeting and discuss this mat
ter in public, and decide, if possible,
some plan of action. It is of the
greatest importance, and should not
be delayed."
Various parties were seen and talked
to on the subject, and while all were
in favor of doing something none
seemed to know what would be ex?
actly the best thing to do.
There are various mud holes and
frog ponds about the city which en?
danger health, and which should be
looked after atonce. The foundation
of the opera house on Jeffer?
son street is half full of water, bear?
ing all the colors of the rainbow, and
another accumulation of embryo
inalidies may be found in the West
End, near the round house, only it
covers four times as much ground.
Still another may be seen by any one
who chooses to go down there and
look at it, on Norfolk avenue, near
the brewery. Trout run, opposite
and below the machine works, needs
cleaning out. and it would not be <?>
very difficult task to lind oth?
ers in various localities.
The Prosbylcrlen Or^an.
The work of putting up the large
and handsome organ recently re?
ceived at the Presbyterian church
was completed yesterday, and it
is now ready to furnish music. It
is just the right size to fill the build?
ing with melodies, not too harsh, an
would probably be the case were it
larger. It was manufactured by the
M. P. Moller Organ company, of Kag
erstown, Aid., and cost $2,000.
It is six feet, six indes wide, five
feet deep and nine f?et high, with
walnut casing. The rront pipes are
beautifully decoraten in gold and
colors and contains274 pipes in all.
The instrument on the whole, is a
beautiful one, and makes delightful
A Sarcastic Retort.
Sunday evening, as a colored dude
tribped fantastically up Salem ave-j
nue, twirling an umbrella handle,and j
wearing scond-handed baseball
shoes, he met a maiden of his own
complexion, dyked in a sort of |
Joseph's-coar attire, whom he asked:
"Miss, can I pay my astrcsses in J
order to gain your nio'.ediction?"
"No sir," she replied, indignantly,
stamping her No. 10 shoe upon the I
pavement with a fo. ee that split a j
brick, and shot a 6tream of stagnant
water across the street. "I am a]
lady of the highest c-mprod unction,
and whutsomever I se.'s my compin

Stole Five Dollar?.
An enterprising personage,who evi?
dently had little fear of the law or re?
gard for his or her soul, visited the
apartments of Mrs. Frank Normoyle j
on Third avenue, n. e., late yester?
day evening and stole a $5 bill. Sin?
gularly, the rogue failed to take any \
of several valuable pieces of jewelry |
which were in the bureau drawer.
A dark-skinned maiden,who is sup?
posed to cook and not to steal for a
living, is suspected, and the police
feel pretty certain, from evidence in
their possession, that they will have
the right one when she is arraigned
before the proper tribunal tomorrow.

Dentil of a Popular Young .Vau.
The death ol Mr. Lewis B. Olintfen
peel Sunday night was a great shock
to his wide^ circle of friends
and acquaintances in the city, fie
had been ill for some time with" fever,
ami his life was aimo-it despaired of
several days before the end came.

Western ollices, and was a bright, ac?
tive and promising youth. He was
a son of Mr. James and Mrs. Eliza

this city, as conductor. Nearly one
hundred teachers are in attendance.
Mr. Graybill has been conducting in?

The Particulars of the Occurrence.
The Excursionists Delayed Several
11 o urs-Fbytriclaua h umuioued from
Lyuchhnrjr to Attend Ute Sufferer*.
An excur..;0ll train from Richmond,
en route to the Natural Bridge, ar?
rived in this city early yesterday
.morning, and a number of the excur?
sionists stopped over in this city to
spend the day. The train was com?
posed of three coaches and a bag?
gage car on its upward trip, bul whim
it returned at night four empty
coaches were attached to it for some
point on the road.
The train left here for Richmond at
10:30 o'clock, the happy lauughing
crowd on board having no thought or
warning that death would overtake
two persons, or that injury would be
fallotherH. On sped the train, with
engineer W. B. Holt at the throttle.
But alas, he will never again stand
upon the footboard of a locomotive.
He has received his lust orders and
been suddenly summoned to report to
the Great Superintendent.
Shortly before the excursion reached
Gladstone, about twenty-eight miles
from here, freight train No 77. had I
been side-trucked to let the former
train pass. After the freight had
passed in on the siding. Conductor 0
0. Withrow closed the switch and
called to Brakeman Reynolds to lock
it. Reynolds not noticing that the
Bwich was closed, threw it back to its
foroier position, thus* again opening
it for the side track.
The excursion train dashed into the
village, but instead of passing on the
main line, it plunged into the frieght,
badly wrecking the locomotive, and
damaging the baggage car and two
coaches. The result was the follow?
ing killed and wounded:
W. B. Holt, bruised so badly about
the head and body that he died be?
fore morning. A negro tramp, un?
known, crushed to death.
James B. Turner, white, extra fire?
man, badly cut and bruised.
W. G. "Miller, white, painfully
about the head.

The wrecking cars were soon put to
work, and the excursionists were able
to proceed on their way at an early
hour yesterday morning. The rail?
road company did everything possi?
ble for the comfort of all those on
the train.?Lynchburg Advance.
Ity United Press.
Richmond, July 14.?An east-bound
passenger train on the James River
division of the Chesapeake and Ohio
railroad yesterday ran into a freight
train at Gladstone, 120 miles west of
this city, killing two men and injur?
ing four others. The cause of the ac?
cident was a misplaced switch.
The killed are Fireman W. C. Hall,
of Richmond, and a negro tramp who
was riding on the trucks of the bag?
gage car. The injured are Engineer
Win. Clawes and Fireman W. G. Mil?
ler, both of Richmond, ankles slightly
hurt: J. E. Turner, clerk in the Rich?
mond railroad yard, hip cut; Joseph
Harsraves, ankle slightly hurt.
General Fremont Dead.
General John C. Fremont, who died
in New York yesterday, had an event?
ful career. The son of a French im?
migrant, he was born in Savannah,
Ga., in 1813, and received a collegiate
education. Appoint'-dto a lieuten?
ancy in the United States corps of
engineers, he penetrr ted the Rocky
Mountains at t wo points, and won the
title of "the pathfinder." He also de?
fined much of the geography between
the Rocky Mountains and the Pacific
Coast, and bore a conspicuous part
in the conquest of Upper California.
He represented California in the
United States Senate from 1849 to
1851. The first candidate of the re?
publican party, he was defeated for
Presidout in 1836 by James Buchanan.
General Fremont served as a major
general in the Union army during the
late civil war. and at the present ses?
sion of Congress was placed on the
the retired list, with the rank of
A Big Snr.ke.
Mr. N. M. Moone, of Botetourt
county, was in the city yesterday,
and sayathat last Friday, while cut?
ting some hay at his place near Buch?
anan with a mowing machine, he
killed a rattlesnake measuring eight
feet in length, and had thirteen rat?
tles. He hadn't got over the "shivers"
yet. and shivered and made others
shiver when he told about it at the
depot yesterday evening.

But little business was transacted in

Yesterday morning a burly colored
man walked up behind a boy on
Railroad avenue, who was carrying a
large basket of things home from
market, and snatched two large to?
matoes and a canteloupe from it. The
black thief then ran towards the rail?
road, and running under a car was
lost sight of.

Ho Im ISeatcn At Hisr Own Game In n
Pennsylvania District.
The Republican Congressional con?
vention for the twenty-fifth district of
Pennsylvania a few days ago, after a
struggle-which lasted forseveral days,
nominated Major McDowell over Hon.
Charles C. Townsend, present incum?
bent. The nomination caused great
surprise, as Mr. Townsend is a friend
of Senator Quay, and had that gentle?
man's backing. The convention had
hardly adjourned before charges of
tho use of boodle by the backers of
Major McDowell were openly made,
and the Pittsburg Dispatch of
yesterday contains an affidavit
from one of the conferees from
Heaver county, in which he confessed
that he was paid $300 to change his
vote from Townsend to McDowell,
and he further states that the two
other conferees from Beaver county
were paid a like amount. An official
call for an investigation lias been is?
sued by the chairman of the Republi?
can committee of Beaver county, j
Major McDowell asserts positively!
that no matter what i i done or proved I
in connection with tho alleged pur?
chase of conferees lie will under no
circumstances withdraw or consent to j
a new conference. It seems posi
tively funny that Senator Quay
should be beaten in a game where
boodle figures.?Baltimore Sun.
Tlic Baltimore and Ohio Land Com?
pany, of Salem,
Offer 1,300 building lots for $150
each. Weekly payments of $1.50.
The Baltimore and Ohio Laud Com?
pany, of Salem, Va., owning 227 acres
of land within half a mile of Salem,
Va., admirably located for building
lots, have determined to offer 1,300
lots for sale at $150 each, including
corner lots, in the following manner:
Lot clubs of 100 members each will
be formed. Each member thereof
paying $1.50 per week or $0 per
month until $150 is paid. Each mem?
ber will draw for a lot at the regular
weekly drawing, and one lot will be
drawn every week until 100 lots are
drawn. The two members drawing
the last two lots will get two lots each
instead of one.
The one drawing a lot can at any
time pay up on his lot and get a deed
to it, as the company own their land
in fee simple; or he can pay one-third
cash, balance in one and two years,
and the company will allow such pur?
chaser 10 per cent, discount given on
his purchase.
A purchaser building, within six
months, a house costing not less than
$500, on his lot, will have a reduction
of 25 per cent, on Iiis purchase, mak?
ing his lot cost $112.50.
Several clubs will be organized in
this city, so that a member can join
one or more clubs, and draw in each
club weekly by the payment of one
dollar and ($1.50) fifty cents in each
club. No interest is charged on these
payments whatever.
The land has been surveyed, laid
out in streets and the lots numbered.
The laid lies partially in the rear of
the Roanoke College, and half a mile
from the center of the town. Water
mains run through the land, side?
walks are also contemplated, and
pleasant homes, close to business,
could be erected at small co6t, either
as a home for the owner or to rent
out, as houses are in great demand in
' As a ?afe investment this is beyond
precedent, and enables one of small
means to secure property constantly
on the increase in value.
Remember, one lot is drawn by
some one each week. Then you can
pay up on your lot after you have
drawn, by paying one-third cash,
balance in one and two years, or as a
whole, at any time you may elect
within 18 months from the time you
joined the club, and secure tho re?
ductions named above.
Every member must pay his weekly
dues before he will be allowed to par?
ticipate in any drawing. If absent,
some one will draw for him, provided
his dues are paid.
Do not be misled by any misrepre?
sentations made abou* this land, but
go to Salem and see it for yourself:
call on Mr. H. Gr. Brown, president of
the company, who will show you over
the property.
The size of these lots are mostly 50x
150, some few are 50x130. The lots are
well situated, and our plan of dispos?
ing of them renders ic easy for the
men of small means to secure a home,
or make a paying investment, by the
expenditure of $1.50 per week. Salem
is a healthy, busy place, growing rap?
idly and presents mort; advantages for
investment than any new town in the
Every working man, be bis means
large or small, can go into this enter?
prise and secure a lot that will con?
tinue to increase in value.
All who wish to sec ire lots in the
Baltimore & Ohio Land Company
should call on Messrs. Oscar D. Derr
& Co., tbe authorized agents for Roan?
oke City, who wili fully explain the
manner of conducting the sale, and
can be found at their office from 8 a.
m. to 10 p. m.
There is no investment on which
one can realize so handsomely and at
so small a cost as to become a mem?
ber of the Baltimore & Ohio Lot
Clubs, unless it is to be a stockholder
in the Baltimore & Ohio Land Com?
pany. We cheerful.y recommend
these lots to the public.
