TO KCl 1.1? SHOE'S. Tile Norfolk mid Western Will cute the Crew? 1'lnnt ;u Nor to! It. The Norfolk and Western road lias finally decided to build immense car works at Lambert's Point, and have selected a site on which to erect the buildings. The shops will be erected on the old Barker estate, north of the com? pany's tracks and west of tin- tene? ment houses. It will cost ?200,000 to . put up the buildings and equip them wirb the necessary machinery. Fifty laborers are now at Ijambert's Point ready to break ground for the building. Their pick.- and shovels , will commence making tin- dirt-fly next week, and by the first of De , cember it i< proposed to have the . building up. '. The shops here will be styled after those at Grewc, with the exception that they will be put upon a much more elaborate scale. The comp iny's rapidly increasing bush. demands more cars than the s!e-ps al Crewe 1 have the facilities for building, and i' 1 is now a matter of necessity to have greater building room. W hen the shops are in full operation i: is esti? mated that they will employ 5*0 men. Most of these men will be skilled me? chanics, and as they will undoubtedly want houses near I be place they work a big building boom will undoubtedly prevail in the Lambert's Poiutsee tion. The railroad companv find that Lambert's Point is just the place for these shops, because most of tiie coal cars which come there loaded with coal will always be empty right at the doors of the shops air<-r having been unloaded. The coal business i. uow assuming such enormous dimen sious that cars are short, and the company cannot, build them fast enough to supply the demand. There are already six indes of side tracks in the company's yards at the Point, and four more miles are being con? structed, which will make a total .'I ten indes of side tracks.? Norfolk Virginian. George Wilson's S!iu' ."'linstj-cJs. The season of amusements will open at the Opera House on Monday evening August 18, when George Wil son's Mammoth Minstrels will appear. Wilson is said to have this season the very best minstrel company ever or? ganized, everything being new and replete with novelty. The New York Journal says of the company: Comi? cal George Wilson stalked upon the staire of the Criterion Theatre List night at the beginingof bis special turn, and stood still. The audience looked at him a second and then some one laughed. George laughed a little, and some one else laughed. Then the risibilities of the audience were stirred to their depths,and such a good old fashioned laugh as the patrons of that house enjoyed will be long remembered. And w hat were they laughing at V Why nothing in particular but Wilson, but they seemed to think it was time to laugh and did so. His make-up was ex? tremely comical. The minstel organ? ization* Mr. Wilson has witli him tins season, is second to very few, if any, in the country. The singers are the be t, tiie comedians of a higher class Mi.-ir- v.-ir? <?? <-n in minstrel shows, and tt.e instrumentalists excellent. Large Investment. Mr. Peter Peebles, of Lonaconing, Md.. who is in the city prospecting, has purchased from the lloanoke Land and Improvement Compauy and other parties, twenty-nine houses and thirty-one lots on Seventh avenue n. e.

The Manufacturers' Record oi August 0 say.-: The contrast betweei tin- West :iml Northwest and t!u South is being very strikingly broughl out at present, by the daily crop reports. In the former sections disastrous crop failures seem to be the order of the day. Prom Kansas comes the report of a corn crop oi only 20 per cent of last year's, while Dakota semis out doleful tales of short yields of cereals. In the South the tanner.-, are rejoicing over the finest prospects known for ninny years, ami the indications now point to the largest cotton crop ever raised, with prices high on account of the steai.ily increasing demand through? out the world lor cotton goods. The past week has witnessed the organization of many enterprises, f ollowing in the line'of the steel works reported last week comes the contract for steel works at Middles borough, Ry.. to lie built by English people at ii cost of $530,000; at Ash? land Hi the same Suite, plans are being mature.1 tor large steel wo ks.

In Texas a $100,000 agricultural im? plement factory has been organized: $50,000 iron work, ami a $50,000print? ing and lithographing company. All along lh.' line the South is growing and prospering. Activity is seen ever, where, an I the fall season will, we believe, show a degree of pros? perity !',,ri,reater than the South has ever before enjoyed. Will l*i?3 Jar Mis Fun. About :i week ago WiUiam Moss, a negro man, went to the stables of Mesfs. .Miller & Co., on Tazewell street, and hired a horse ami buggy for several hours, fn company with a sombre-hued damsel, he drove abound tin- citj at a rare thai made horseflesh sulTei beyom! what the law permits, and finally came to u saloon, where he slopped t ?imbibe the liquid fite .-old within. Here he was met by William Oai ington; a gentlemau of bis own eolor, who offered to return the team to iiie livery. Moss consented, but instead of returning the team to the stable Carriugton concluded to take 1 drive. When he did return the team Mr. Miller found the horse literally bathed fn his own sweat; and with whip marksall overhis back and hind : >gs. Alarmed at thecondition Of the horse, Mr. Miller had Carrington ar? rested and lodged in jail. Ye.-terday lie was I >r< mght bef?i e .1 usi ice Hower ton, who. after listening patiently to the evidence, concluded that $45 line md sixty days in jail would satisfy die demands of justice. Carriugton iva* not able to pay the line, anil so ..ii! have tli.- pleasure of working ipon our p'iblic thoroughfares for birty days longer, or three months in ;!!. Moss left for parts unknown, or lo.ubtless he would have shared the .her.- of Carriugton on the chain Ai Chicago the committee on uiii orm classification of freight, which vas appointed December 5,1888, by he railroad companies of the United states, has just submitted its report. The committee consists of sixteen neinbers, two from each of the eight raffle associations of the country, md after much labor lias formulated i plan for the combining of all exist ng classifications in one general dassitication. The proposed form is :omposed of eleven classes, and it is ?ecoTutucnded that it be put in eiTect January ?.. igei. The committee also ?ecomtm ndstu?* a permanent organi? sation be fanned wuu, hoard of uni orm classification, a chiet ?hairman indtliree district chairmen, im. lice of i he principal chairman to be in Jhic?gO, and the district chairmen to lie located respectively at New Vvrk, Atlanta ai.d St. Louis. Nine tenths of the railroad acei lents that happen to paesengers are lirectly dm- to the passengers them? selves. The railroad companies know the dangers of travel and they take every precaution to reduce them to the minimum, laying down rules that ire safe and wise. If passengers, through their own reckless and fool? hardy c induct, tiMiisirivss those rules and are killed or maimed, they them? selves are to blame ami not the com? pany. Passengers mu>t not get on the platform until the train stops. Stay in the ear until it stops. The weakness of Missouri Pacific is commented upon as showing the posi? tion of Mr. Gould in the market. That gentleman is looked upon as a very important and prominent factor in the uext bull campaign, and if this be continued he is naturally favorable to as low a range of prices for a start ing point as can be obtained. There are some wiio believe this is the ex? planation of the present weakness. The capital to build the South Pennsylvania railroad will be fur? nished bya syndicate of Pennsylvania and Maryland men. Apart of the old route will be abandoned, "~rrnd the right of way for the new line has been bought. President (.'able, of the Kock Island road,is quoted as saying that the road do not make the most money out of big crops, for the reason that the Grangers insist on low rates, and the general business is, therefore, con? noted by the plethora of produce for which there is no demand. Ii is said that the soft coal produc? tion this year will be 2.000,000 tons ahead of last year; which represent nearly that amount of anthracite which cannot be marketed. Vice PresidentReinfiart says thru much of the 1 nIk of poor crops in Kansas, along the line of the Atchin. son lines, is for the sole purpose of depressing stock values, ami really has no basis in fact. There is now in the West and Northwest fully one third of last year's enormous crops that has not been moved at all, and that is now being held back for higher prices. The survey of the Bedford and James River Railroad will probably begin in about two weeks, and we may hope to see active operations in? stituted within sixty day9. Pr^ident Berry will leave shortly for Atlanta, Ga., to make final arrangements with the construction company. RAILROAD NOTES. iT 10, ls?o. SUNDAY SALAD. TO BE READ BEFORE THF MORNING SERMON.

Yesterday morning the first spik* was driven iu the dummy road con? necting Roanoke and Salem, and in a few weeks l lie line will bo completed. There has been considerable delay u the work owing to the failure of the li-b plates to arrive. The c ar in which they wore lay at Buchanan for >ver a week, and no oue knew where it was. The rails and spikes came through without delay, but no rails could l>e laid without ibu fish-plates, and so Houston & Co., the contrac? tors, bad to content themselves wirb getting everything in readiness for I laying tin-road u beutln- plates did 1 arrive. So the rails were spread along the road for a distance ol two mill ', and yesterday at 7 o'clock a big negro picked up a sledge and sent the lirsl spike safely ho nr. The road is now graded within a mile of Salem, and a largo- force of bands are at work pushing it forward rapidly. A saw null has been placed in position, and timber for the bridges is being cut every day. and it . will not be long before the streams ! lying between will be spanned. Next month will not be very old when one can be whirled over to Salem in a jiffy. This evening the Roanoke Base Bull Clab leaves for Bristol, wi ere they will cross bats <m Monday and Tuesday afternoons with the Border City club. The Bristol team has been greatly strengthened sluce it was here about two months ago. and it is ex? pected that the scores will be more intevesting. Prom Bristo1 the club will u'o to Knoxville, and there four games will be played. The Uoanol.es ami the hluoxvilles are now withoul doubt the i wo strongest teams in the South and tin- outcome of the scores will be watched closely by the base ball lovers both hen.'anil there. Um? pire Welch will go with the boys ami keep them straight. Pull reports of tin- games will be found every morn? ing in the Times. A reporter of the TlMEs took a run | down to Vintou on the dummy dur-j ing the week ami at the terminus of , ' the line he was met by a real estate), agent, who took him for a stranger and a capitalist. lie tried to sell him a lot. ami iu the course of the conver? sation the agent mentioned, in aeon lidential way, that Vintou was the healthiest town in the country. "My I 1 dear sir," he said, '"just look at me if I j you want to sec an example of thel" bealtbfulness of Vintou. Two months'! ago 1 was living in Roanoke, and since I I've moved here I've gained twenty J pounds. 1 tell you. sir, Roauoke*s an unhealthy place. If you want to live long and be happy, just buy a lot here iu Vintou and live here, if you live iu Roanoke you'll be sure and catch the fever." It is just such trash as this that is dinned into the ears of every pros? pective investor in many of the towns throughout the Southwest. The ;i^ei!t> do not seem to appreciate the fact that every sensible man will think much less of him for trying to injure another place for the sake of building up his own home. He does not give the purchaser credit for hav- j i iug enough sense to see through his |< motives and having a wholesale con? tempt for them.

Can an v ..mer town in the country make a better showing ': Saturday is a big day at the Roan? oke market, and yesterday more busi? ness was done than ever before in the experience of the oldest dealers. I'p to 11 o'clock last night the place was thronged with people. One hundred and seven wagons paid curbage tax at the market house, amounting to *is.7.~>, the receipts being about $1 more than any pre? vious market. The average receipts per day for the first nine days of the month "have been $11, and they are increasing as the later fruits and vegetables are coining into market. Prices for all kinds of produce remain high, and we hope this fact will en? courage our farmers to try and supply the needs of our people. Want Mori? oi' Them. From a comparative statement of the business of the Norfolk and West? ern railroad for the first six months of the present year with the same period in 1889, it is learned that !>-l 484 more local passengers have been transported this year than last, and -is'.i.-lijl more tons of local freight. The local freight traffic is :)7 per cent, greater than last year, and the local passenger business ?20 per cent, greater. And the Norfolk and Western road has thus increased its business by the very liberal policy it has pursued in developing the country through which it passes. Pity we heven't a dozen railroads in Virginia like the Norfol k and Western, for if we had the boom would not be confined to one section of the State.?Danville Register._ Death of .Miss Clara Johns.

The promoters of the Paper Bag Company uro not allowing any grast to grow under their feet. They have been pushing things right ahead, and expect to have several machines turning out 840 paper bags a min i1 each, and giving employment to forty or fifty people, in running operation by the lirst of Septemb -r. A representative of the Times took a ride yesterday with L. L Powell, one of the prime movers of the com pany, and had an opj >?tunityol see ing What had been done. Tlie promoters have purchasi 1 the Price tobacco factory, corner Com merce and Franklin streets, at a cosl of $0,000, and have had it thoroughlj renovated and repaired, it has I fitted up especiu'ly for the business of the company, and is now quite i? handsome and commodious structrre.

The second floor will be used a- oflice and storeroom of t he paper bag con:] ian\ proper, and the machines will hi located on the third floor. As stated, the company expects to be turning out paper bags by the first oi Sep? tember. It is also reported that the com? pany has been offered $50,000 for on halt of its territory. ROANOKES VS. VIRGINIAS. Tin-si mixers !>?> l'i> the Boy? Without Much Difficulty. The game yesterday afternoon at Riverside park between the Roanoki and the Virginian-, both of this city, was not very interesting, and tie crowd in attendance was very small.

Featherstpne, a prominent investor and politician of Bedford, was in the city yesterday. The captain was perhaps the tallest man in town, and Charley Thomas, the city treasurer, would have to look up to him. But he is not only big in size, he is big any way you Take him, and he numbers his friends by the hundred- He has almost abandoned politics of late, and is engrossed in the development ol his proj erty in Southwest Virginia. But it is not unlikely that he will again fake the stump if he is needed, and a .bei ter champion would be hard to find. ?? * Mr. Frederick Johnson, one of the oldest inhabitantants of this section, was in town a couple of days during the week. He has many reminiscences to tell of the days when Roanoke was known as Big' Lick. For twenty seven vears he was the clerk of the Circuit Court, being the first incum? bent of the office, retiring at the close of the war, to remove to Salem where he has since practiced law.
