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
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.

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.

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

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
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?
