THE SM WAS SEVEN TO ONE, The ISnll Over (he Fence at f.asl -ll Was a CiiotMi Game?TT? Were Grcnl With the Stick?Tottuy'a Playern G t> <>? G a in e To in o r r w ?. The Phoebus bast; ball club, <>f Hampton, Virginia, arrived in the eUy yesterday morning. and crossed bats with the lloauokesat the usual hour in the afternoon. The game wasan interesting and exciting one, and despite the fact that the Roan ojies won by a score of 7 to I, the visi? tors exhibited baseball facilities which playing bespoke their edlcieuey. Their every movement was that of good players, and the reaso i why the con test w.isn't closer is cot "octly attribu? ted 10 the fact, that they had traveled all night and were necessarily fatigued and worn out. A good crowd was present, about 500 being there, and tie.* game was 61 sufficient interest to keep them all there until it closed. Three ot the fea? tures of tlie game were dog tights, which were greatly applauded. In the first inning the Roanokes failed to make a run. Rosenthal, of the visitors then went to the bat,and startled everything, and made every? body yell until their tin oats got sore by knocking the ball over the fence, and making a home run. Brodie, the pitcher for the 1'oanokes, didn't ^jet rattled, however, and it was due to him principally that no more runs were matte in that inniug by the visi? tors. In fact they made no more runs duriu.tr the game. In the second inningS?nds knocked the ball safely to right field. Kirby t:nt to third on errors, and then came home. Sands also on Alex Brodie's hit to left field. Reefer ^ot out at first, and Brodie did tin- tame at sec? ond, and the side was retired with two runs in Roanokes favor. The visitors didn't as much as make first base. In the third inning its feature was Dolin's fine two base hit, bringingin ? Sproul, and then coming in home himself no errors. When Rosenth q i cs me to the bat he was greatly applauded because he had knocked the ball over the fence before. Contrary to the expectations he lined out a three-bagger, the ball lacking only about six inches of going Over the fence. The next batter p?>t out on a foul, and the two next wi re >t ruck out. In the fifth inning Dolin knocked the ball safely to left field, and got home on a wild throw. Neither side made a run in the sixth, but iu the seventh the Roa? nokes scored two. No more runs were made on either Fide, and thus the &rame closed. The score: 111 MMiKK. lt. lM. p.o. A. c. Wjgjnorc, 2b.

A number of ladies were present, and of course didn't know which side came out victorious u;,ti\ somebody told them. The sale of peanuts was about the average, but on account of the de? lightfully cool weather, the lemonade didn't take quite so weil. The surrounding hills were, of course, covered by people, and they set up a vagabond yell every time there was no occasion for it. The tender remarks that Beach of the second base, made to a crippled canine who visited that locality with regularity will be remembered for a ?long time. Some have concluded that he is not much of a dog lover. Following is the batting order of the Roanokes this afternoon: Wigmore, 2 b.; Beck. r. f.; Sproul, l.f.;A. Brodie.s. p.; Kirby, 1 b.; I.

A scrapping match be? tween negro boys would also occur every time the'ball went over the fence, because the one who captured it was given admission to the grounds. A Big Combini'.tion.

Fellowaite, Edward Thompkins and G. Word Harrison, four prominent Boston ca? pitalist who have been making ate ?r of the Southwest, passed through the city today en route home. They have already considerable money invested at. Pulaskiand it is their intention to place considerable capital in the Southwest. "Whatare your impressions of this section," asked a Times reporter of Mr. Harrison. "Very favorable," was the reply. "Wo have eDjoyed our trip through the Son;invest exceedingly and have never seen more substantial looking towns, better railroad facilities or more hospitable people. The people of Massachusetts are becoming inter? ested in tins section through the re? ports of the Massachusetts editors who recent lv made yon a visit. They themselves are enthusiastic in their ! praise of every thing they saw." The gentlemen will make another visit to the Southwest at an early clay. ?*# The familiar figure of Judge Griffin, of Bedford City, was seen on the streets of the city yesterday. He ? m< alxncst as many friends in Roa? noke ns be has at home and that is saying h good deal. A.- the years go hy the judge seems to be ;,r"ttiin,' better ! totting. His moustache and goatee get a little grayer, but that does not make any difference. He continues to take an intense interest iu political affairs and though be lias taken no active interest in them since hin defeat by Hopkins, the labor can? didate from Lynchburg, that is not saying that, in time he will not. A better man could not represent this district in Congress or one who is more conversant with public affairs. * * Colonel Frank H. Fries, the presi? dent of the Virginiaana North Caro? lina Construction Company, is at the Hotel Roanoke. He is a tall, slight gentleman with blue eyes and has blonde whiskers. The ques? tion as to where the Roanoke and Southern will cuter the city has not yet been determined upon. Col. Fries said to a reporter that he is afraid that.the righl of way will cost a great deal of money. Property owners are asking very high prices for real estate, and he thinks that it i3 possible that it may cost as much to get into the town as it has sub? scribed. President Fries registered from Salem, N. C, but his business keeps him almost constantly on the road. Mr. Robert Brown, of Knoxville, spent a couide of days iu the city dur iogthe week. Mr. Brown is an all round sporting man, and he loves a race horse better than be does a good dinner, though he will go a long dis? tance for the latter. The average Teunesseean loves a blooded horse next to his wife and children, or his sweetheart and one can hardly tell him from his Kentucky mother. * * An elderly gentleman, wearing a broad brimmed slouch hat and a white mustache and chin whiskers, satin one of the big arm chairs on the Hob-] Roanoke porch yesterday ?fteruoon and chatted with a party of friends. His name was Dr. Robt. I'. Lake, and he live- in Madison county. He is one of the compara? tively few Virginia gentlemen who continue to live in the country as in days gone by. His plantation and mansion are almost a pattern of what hundreds of ot hers were in the days before and "endui in' of de wah." Dr. Lake is interested in a number of enterprises in Roanoke and is a fre? quent visitor here. Fire and Fun. Major J. Horace Lacy, of Virginia, probably intends his ietter to General .lubal A. Early to Le taken seriously. Whatever the writer's intention the letter is delightfully numerous as the reader tuny observe elsewhere. It is no easy thing to weld together blood thirstiness and fun, bnt Major Lacy does it inimitably. To begin with, the point at issue between the fiery Major and the old Confederate war horse is not of '''he slightest consequence to any breathing being. Jt is simply whether General Lee spoke favorably on a certain occasion of the military abilities of Brigadier Hilly Mahone." Early says he did not: Major Lacy says he did. The venera? ble Mahone is yet to bo heard from. Early has also* slighted Major Lacy, which is not surprising, if his general conduct is on a par with the tone and language of his letter. But the ex? quisite morsel of unconscious humor comes at the end of the letter, where Major Lacy regrets the survival of the men who will neither learn nor forget. Very few men have the courage to say that they regret their own existence.?Pittsburg Dispatch. An Old Ronnoke Boy. The real surprise among the "kids*' is Walter Brodie.

In the Hustings Court yesterday, in the case of P. W. Oliver againBt John Black, an appeal from the de? cision of a justice, the decision of the justice was reversed. An Ohio Congressman drank four glasses of iced tea, and was very ill in consequence. It served him right.

The board of health, after a good prodding by the citizens and news? papers of Roanoke,bavo at last shown a disposition to keep the streets clean. The force was on yesterday iucreased and all day long the garbage carts wen- basy removing filth from the prim ipal thoroughfar Jefferson street at i's intersection with Salem avenue locks a thousand per rent, better than h did two day: ago And the avenue from the Mar? ket to its junction with Commerce street looks cleaner and better than it has for many a long month. And it didn't cost much either. Probably the expense of the force at work yes? terday did not amount to ?00. Whew: What an-ulor filled the the air when the mud holes were dis? turbed. It was something to be re? membered not pleasantly, and pedes? trians hurried along at a quicker gait despite the fact that the ther? mometer was soariug up 'round about ninety-two degrees above zero. I'p and down tin? principal streets it looked as if a light snow bad fallen, the whiteness of the slacked limecon t rag ting strongly with the blackness of the mud. The lime did noble and one could almost see it consume the vegetable and animal matter in the garbage that was lefr. Citizens all over town were not slow to applaud the good work being done by the Hoard of Health and they couldn't be pleased better than to have it con? tinued. The inudholes on the road along the dummy line to Vinton are also receiving attention. \ estcrday carts and men were busy all day filling them up with cinders and the road is rapidly in a condition tliar will allow of comfortable travel. Cinders make the very best kind of roadbed and the city could not do bette;- than to invest in all they can find. But though the Board of Health under the leadership Ol its president, Dr. George S. Luck, is doing noble work, it will not amount to a great deal if the co-operation of the citizens is not forthcoming. Many of the cellars in town are in a most unhealthy condition and they should i?e treated immediately to a good coat of lime. All it costs is a dollar a bushel. AGAINST SOUTHERN lKt?.*V. Northern RallrondN arc Trying to Klint Out Our Product*. Ho more conclusive proof of the in? dustrial growth of tin* South could be afforded than is furnished in the ac? tion of the Pennsylvania Railroad in increasing rates on the transportation of Southern iron. This increase, it is frankly admitted by the freight agent of the "railroad company, as reported in the Philadelphia Press, has been made at the instance and for the pro? tection of Pennsylvania manufactur? ers. "It was aone," said the agent in response to inquiries, at the re? quest of the Pennsylvania iron men. The iron business was dull, and in their letter they mentioned that the rate charged to the Southern manufacturer was lower than that charged to the Penn? sylvania furnaces. The matter was looked into, and we found that the freight rates for Southern iron were lower, tor the rate charged to thc Pennsylvania furnaces was based on a local rate, and the Southern charges were ba?ed on a through rate. It is only right that we should look after the interests of our h< me business.'" In other words,*the competition of Southern iron has become so great in Pennsylvania that it has made the iron ti '.de dull for the iiome furnaces, and forced them to call upon the rail? roads for aid in shutting out their Southern rivals. The only way ap? parently that they can hope to retain their supremacy is by excluding the Southern product from the State. It is absurd to speak of the ?'com? paratively small amount of South? ern iron that is carried," and yet in the same breath to advance rates to keep this small amount from competing with the native arti cle. It is clear that the iron indus tries in Virginia and other Southern States are beginning to make the shoe of the protected Pennsylvania manufacturer pinch very badly. A few years ago he wanted protection from the pauper labor of Europe, and now he wants protection from other States of the Union. In the latter case he cannot get Cougress to inter? vene as he did in the former, but be has sufficient influence with thePenn sylvania Railroad to lay an embargo on Southern iron. Of course so nar? row and short sighted a ' policy will only defeat its own object. If the iron mountains of the South cannot be carried to the business Mahomets of Pennsylvania who have the good sense to 'buy where they can buy cheapest, the Mahomets will go to the mountains. In the words of aPennsyl? vania iron man:"The wholeupshot will be that the furnaces and iron manu? facturers in thisStatejvhousedSouth ern iron will try to get the Pennsyl? vania Road to give another and a lower rate, and if they don't there is a probability that a Dumber of the furnaces will be moved to Virginia, where they will have everything at their disposal, and instead of paying tolls on the raw material will only have to pay freight on the manufact? ured article. Much of the capital in? vested in Virginia is by Pennsylvan ians. They did not go into this thing for fun; they mean business." Protec? tion may be a good thing for the pro? tected as long as it protects, but when it fails to do so what are they going to do about it? Evidently such an ex? pedient as calling to their aid a rail? road corporation can be but a tempor? ary make-shift in a country where new and competing railroad lines are springing into existence every year. But even if such a device were effec? tive in excluding Southern iron from Pennsylvania, it could not save the iron interests of that btate from the inevitable operations of the laws of trade and business. If iron can be made more cheaply in the South than in Pennsylvania manufacturers will either have to recognize that fact and act accordingly or shut up shop and go out of business.?Baltimore Sun. THEY CpXTSIfE TODAY. Prominent Kailroad Men From All Over Um .Mitte .Meet Here Today.

The following roads will be repre? sented: Atlantic Coast Line, Atlantic bnd Danville railroad, Haltimoro and Ohio, Chesapeake and Ohio, Farm ville and Powhatanv Norfolk and Western, Norfolk end Southern, Richmond and Danville, Richmond, Fredericksburg and 3'otomac, Sea 1 oard and Roanoke, Slienandoah Valley, South Atlantic and Ohio and Washington Southern. A Lecture on Japan. Mr. Geatarow Okano, of Tokio, Japan, will lecture in the lecture room of the First Presbyterian church to? night at H o'clock. Mr. Okano is said to be a brilliant orator and is a lawyer by profession, educated in this country, lie will lec? ture upon Japan, and will give an ex? hibition of the various costumes worn by Ids countrymen. The admission will be free, but a voluntary collection will be taken up to defray expenses. The Baltimore and Ohio Land Com? pany, of Sal cm. Oiler 1,300 building iots 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 !uts for .-ale at sir,o each, including corner lots, in the following manner: Lot clubs of 100 members each will be formed. Each member thereof paying $1.60 per week or $G 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 o wn their land iu lee 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 35 per cent, on his purchase, mak? ing his lot cost $113.50. 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, atid pleasant, homes, close to. business, could be erected at small cost, either as a home for the owner or to rent out, as houses are in great demand in Salem. As a safe 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 ?nd two years, or as a whole, at any time you may elect within 18 months from the time you joined the club, and secure the re? ductions named above. Every member must pay his weekly dues before he will be r>!Iowed 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 about this land, but goto Salem and see it for yourself: call on Mr. H. G. Brown, president of the company, who will show you over the property. The size of these lots are mostly 50x ISO, some few are ?0xl3'i. The lots are well situated, and our plan of dispos? ing of them renders it 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 more advantages for investment than any new town in the State. Every working man, be his 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 secure lots in the Baltimore & Ohio L*nd Company should call on Messrs. Oscar D. Derr & Co., the authorized agents for Roan? oke City, who will 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 &t Ohio Land Com? pany. We cheerfully recommend these lots to the public. Respectfully, Oscar D. Derr & Co., No. 10 First avenue, S. W., Roanoke, Va. H. F. Meetze, With II. G.
