Sew Committee* Appointed Inter pMtlnK AiltlrCMMM bj'TroMi nn<l Fries The people of Roanoke iutcn.l to have tlie Roanoke uiul Southern railroad here. The meeting of businessmen at the Young Men's Christian Association Hall yesterday afternoon was called for the purpose of settling the ques? tion at once, and their is every reason to believe that it vvili be settled i> >foro t he sun got'-down this day. In t le? ihe courwe ot half a dozen minutes a~ many thousand dollars were sub Bcribed to the Guarantee Company, ami a committee was appointed to solicit additional subscriptions. .\1 ready $30,500 lias been secured, and the $13,500 yet to be subscribed will, it is coulidentlv expected, soon be placed. The meeting was called to or ler at t o'clock, and Mr. lt. E. Scott was made chairman, lliuton Helper act? ing ~as secretary. The audience was made up of-'representative business men and they were determined to settle the matter at once and for good There was an atmosphere of business in the hall and the meeting was st rictly business. At tVe utggestion of Mr. Jjis. S. Siuim >ns the chairman invited Presi? dent '''rout of the read to address the meeting. Mr. Trout did so at some length and his speech was full of good and effective poiuts. Mr. Trout prefaced his remarks by saying that he proposed to make a plain state ment of facts. He then gave a concise history of the road from its inception up to the present time. Eullock and Company first took tl.ontract to build it and spent several thousand dollar- in surveying. They were to have completed the line for the company, but tailed, and then the Virginia and North < Carolina Construction Company w:is organ? ized, and they undertook the work >?! building the road. "They have." sain Mr. Trout, ??under many dilli :ul ties, done remarkably well, and by the first of December if is expected that trains will be running into Mar tinsville from Winston." The presi? dent then went ?>n to explain the difficulty experienced by the roa ! in gettiug into the city. Their efforts had met with nothing but discourage? ment. They wer.- willing pay $?0,000 for-a route into the city, but they soon found that it would cost them a good deal over $100,000 to get in. and they very properly refused to pay it. The crisis had to be met.and at this juncture the G ua ran tee (lompany was suggested. Mr. Trout explained the object olrthis company, and said that for various reasons it had not b ;en successful in raising the entire amount. He believed that if it wen raised there was not doubt !>ut what the road would come to Roa noke. Mr. D. C. Mo nuaw - iggested th ?.: Colonel Fries, the president >>t the construction company, address the meeting: Colonel Erics said that he was called upon rather unexpectedly. He had had no idea that he would be asked to participate in any meeting when he came to the city. He then went on am! briefly outlined the work of the company as it has thus fai been done and spoke intelligent!} ol the question of coining into the city with the road. He said, that thecoiu pany had wrestled with the question tor a long time and as yet did not see their way clear as to the route. He admitted that Roanoke had done nobly in subscribing to so ma l: stock, but the company could ei r tainly not pay a- much as was nskei to imii1 into the city. The prici asked P?T^fr>?^J^I11,v over whicl the road was to pass' P* - 'il Surely there was no business man there who would not say that this was an exhorbitant price to pay. H stated in this connection that Mr. E. H.Stewart had been unjustly criti cized. He had bought property along the proposed route of the road, but that property had been turned over to the company at cost price, it was then discovered that the price was too much, and there the matter at pres? ent stood. He explained that the building of the road was a matter of business, nothing more,nothingle.-s, and it was in that light alone that the construc? tion company wen- obliged to rega rd it. They bad to make every dollar go as far as it would am! the si riefest economy had to bp used. 'Ihn I can aid you intwo ways" said Col. Fries. "1 understand that there i< a division among the citizens regarding tin point at which the road shall enter the town. I can tell you this. The western entrance into the city. has. after mature consideration, been abandoned. The road if it comes at all will come from the east, if this information will be of any assistanc ? to you in coming to a conclusion you are welcome to it." ''The terminus at Winston." con? tinued the colonel, "did not cost us but $9,0U0, and you may imagine what the people of that city think of paying fifteen times as much as was paid there for a terminus here- They do not feel inclined to go down into their pockets to pay for building the road and let Roanoke do little else than pay for her own terminus. The company has abandoned any such idea, and unless something towards securing a terminus here is done at an early day the road will not come here at all. I think I have done my duty in this matter and stated the facts just as they are. 1 want to say here, for the information of the people of Roanoke. that we don't ask her far a cent more than si e has already givcu .Mithat we do want is an entrance into the city at a price we can pay." "Did or did not the construction company make a contract to build the road to Roanoke'' asked Mr. Woodrnm. "Such a contract was made" said Colonel Fries, but it has never been executed Mr. Dupuy suggested that a com? mittee be appointed to wait upou the construction company, and learn the the exact amount- it" would cost to ing the road into the city. Joseph A. Gale thought that it _>ood idea to call upon.the ' ^ent to subscribe to the guarantee con-ioany. appE?W**tt*^^a< to have Mr: Sini'raons erne of the eomjJanj ne so that everyjbnf DAY MORNING, AUG might fally understand it. In a few well chosen words Mr. Simmons did this. He .said that Colonel fries hud doubtless other irons in the lire und i ould make uo promises, but that the road would come if the routel-*xv^| secured he had no doubt. . Then President Trout said he wanted to say a few words more. He was in a position to know, and though, of course, be could not speak officially, he believed that the road would come as soon as the company was made up. "It will not he many days," said Mr. Tnu;t. "before grading will be commenced right at our doors, und not mauy months before trains will he rolling info our city from Wins? ton." (Applause.) "1 will state right here that the construction company is the dog .-ind the road is the tail, but both of them mean business. I want the question settled at once,'" continued Mr. Trout. "I believe 1 will live ten years longer if it is- If there is one person, there is a hundred a day. to ask mo the question, 'How ;:i).uit rvu- Roanoke and Southern?1 Ii is the Ural thing iu lie- morning and the last at night. Why, it takes me ti n minutes to ^,-( from the hank to the post ofllee. The people want it and !hey must have it." Mr. il. St.-wart agreed entirely with Mr. Trout, lie made a short speech saying that the meeting was a mo>t important one and incidentally t.?|<| of the purchance of the land's over which the road was to have en? tered the city. ('ol. Fries had instruct? ed him to buy properly ami ;r>-t op? tions on certain lands, and this he had done to i he besl ol his anility. Upon calculating the cost i' had been dis? covered thai the cost would lie much greater than was expected and Out of this difficulty grew tie- guarantee company. II- believed with the ma? jority of the people that if t In- Stock of this company was taken the road was assured. When Mir. Stewart:sat down Post J master A&borry arose, and all eyes were turned in his direction. As was well known, lie had opposed the lor m tion of tie- gurtntee company from the lir-t am|y?T. was expected that he would say s?fuething. And no one was disappointed. ??.Mr. Chairman,*'said Mr. Asberry, ??it the meeting of ih.- Real Estate Exchange some time ago I opposed thi- new company. 1 was mistaken in several things Isaid there and I want to take some of them back. There is no job iu this company and lumgoiug.to put my name in the subscription If-t for $1,000." Thefifiplause following this speech wus^eWeuing and the ball was set foil*!! j^fc the |-;_rlit . 1 i reel io;i. "Plrgffii thousand, t...>," said Mr. C.OXeary.

The Norfolk and Webern Railroad Company yesterday morning made up .i second section to No. east hound passenger train in order to nc commi ?dato a large excursion of South? ern capitalists to various points in the North. ! The train consisted of live PulllU ;ii coaches -one from Anniston, Ala . to New York: another from Florida to Boston; a third from Florid;v?fefi3$p ton: and a special and regukvjj^Hi'out Memphis to Washington. They arrived in Roanoke at 9.30a. in., and left an hour later via the Shenaudoah Valley. There] was a large number of Alabama people on the train, and when a TIMES reporter talked to a number of the passengers he was cordially received. ?4 Mr. W. T. W?llac-.a member of the city council of Anniston, and presi? dent of the fire department of that city, is an ardent aduiiicr of his home and says without exception it is the besl laid out town in the South. Her population now numbers 10,000 souls, and is steadily increasing. A cotton mill, foundries, pipe works, furnaces and ear shops constitute her ninnu fact uriug enterprises, and all of which are now in successful operation. The reporter also had an interview with Colonel C. S. Shattuck, com manderof the (J. A. R. post at Annis? ton. Colonel Shattuck is.a native of Massachusetts, hut has been in the South tor the last eight years. He -ay.- that the citizens of Alabama are opposed to the Force bill to a man. and that one hundred Northern Re? publicans, now living in Anniston, have petitioned the Senate not to pass tin; measure. In the Florida car the reporter saw Messrs. A. Ii. Campbell and .J. (' Greeley, of Jacksonville, and Mr. H. E. Smith, of Plymouth Mr. Greeley represents the Cam! Mortgage Hank, of .Jacksonville, an English bank house with a capital of I $2,500,000. He am! Mr. Campbell seem to be justly proud of the health fulness ot Jacksonville, there being ! on t wenty-seven deaths there during the month of July. They are quite indignant, though, at the census enumerators, who refuse to enumer? ate those citizens who have left the city for the summer, ami they r.-port 10,000 out our of a population of30,000 as absent. They say that the manufacturing interests are very quiet,but that great excitement prevails over the develop? ment of the phosphates in the State, and that the largest fertilizer com? panies in America are investing ex? tensively. There are-^rtiil^o be tens ol thousand of acres id' phosphate from tour to thirty feet deep. These industries nave added greatly to the population of the State. Mi. 11. 12. Smith, of (?rlando, the great orange growing county of the S; a t". reports the crop this year as only about 50 per cent, of the average, owing to the frosts of last winter, and the drouth of this summer. He says that the recently perfected sys? tem of marketing has given a great impetus to this industry, and that hundreds of acres arc living planted yearly. He has now a grove of 200 acres of his own. besides he is caring for 300 acres which he planted for New England capitalists. He ha-two trees which bore this year 7,000 and 1^,000 oranges respect? ively, while an old tree at Fort Holly, the oldest in the State, bore it- usual crop of 12,000. These'three trees an amo ig the few that wciry/y severe i'ro.-ts of 1835-36, w hici. most of the orange trees in the', tha In speaking ot the political o% Mr. Greeley said that the Faruit Alii mce was very strong througlwUt the State, but that he did not think if was their intention to nominate ticket before 1892, when they will doubtless run a gubernatorial ticket. Judge W. Bo wens, of tlie Probate Court of Duval county, and Bfessrs. S. <?. Hubbard and R. L. Marvin, two| prominent citizens of Jackfonvilh were also .among the excursionists. The party expects to stop in Roan-j oke on their return, and expect to be accompanied by prominent Northern capitalists. Durucd to a Crisp. LvXCHBURCf, VA., Aug. 7.?A col? ored woman named Tina Branch met with a horrible death at Reusens.four miles above this city, Tuesday morn? ing. She was taken sick early in the morning and arose and lighted a ker? osene lamp which she placed on a tea? cup near tlie bed. By some means tiie lamp was upset, igniting the oil. and instantly the woman was en? veloped in flames. Her screams aroused her husband in an adjoining room and he made desperate efforts to save her, but she was burned al? most to a crisp. The man was also badly burned, but he may recover. A CurioiM Engine. The Baltimore and Ohio train which arrives here at 9:20 a. in. from Washington, was drawn yesterday by a remarkable curious engine, which belongs to a private individual by the name of Henry Shaw, the eu gine bearing his name on the side of the cabin. The company has it hired for a short while. It is pecu? liarly constructed having double cylinders, pistons, elc, and is said to be tlie easiest running engine in the United States, a medal being dis? played in the cabin for that honor. Its peculiar whistle, which is similar to a sream tug, drew a considerable number of people to the station to <ee ft off. In fact is was quite a ?uriousity in the line of engines. Frederick News.

'?Tony.-' as lie calls himself, can speak very little English, and is unable to writ, legibly. Doubtless, therefore, ii" thought to save others' annoyance and himself a hotel bill by sleeping along the railroad somewhere west ol Henry street. It was in that neighborhood, at least he was met by three burlv negro men about Vi o'clock last night. Cue of the black demons leaped upon him from behind while the other two. with rocks in their hands, dealt him a number of blows upon the head, cutting several severe gashes and ren? dering him unconscious. They then robbed him of his money and papi rs and left him to the care of the police, who found him about ten minutes later. He was taken to the drugstore of Charles Lyle, where his wounds were dressed, and the man made as com? fortable as possible. The Vinton Water Works.
