By way of introduction, permit meto say that 1 have visited numerous other cities throughout this broad i unl in recent years, but of few, if any. havel been able to form as favor? able on opinion as of the Magic City of Southwestern Virginia. Lu saying this, I take into consideration, of course, the utmost unprecedented growth and rapid development ol the place, from a sluggish village of 400 people in 188*1 to a great industrial ?entn of nearly orqnite 20,000 popu Iai ion in 1800. Within its limits are to be found i >t only elegant and commodious tols, which are constantly tilled to j overllowing with visitors, principally j from the Northern, New England and K?stern States, eagerly set-king in? vestments, hut all the other co.. ? I comitanta also which combine to make a thrifty and promising city, such as street railways; the arc and j incaudi see it systems of elec ric light? ing: extensive machine shops and manufacturing < Malili-lmients, one of them alone employing.over 1,800 hand-; la ge wholesale and retail toresof every variety: line churches of all denominations; good markets; National and private hanks, and other financial institutions; beautiful, streets: elegant residents of divers modern architectural designs, social: organizations, etc Tin se are some of t lie tangible evi? dences presented which give to the stranger, almost at a glance, a uiosr satisfactory idea of Ronnoke's von-1 derlul strides toward ln-r destined greatness, and which tend to impress and conviue? the tm>st skeptical that! b?-r growth is not of n mushroom eharae'er, but one of substantial and enduring reality. And there appears no reason why it >u!d he otherwise. Roanoke enjoys I many advantages of location. It is delightfully situated iu one of the most fertile agricultural and richest ueral sections of the country. Within the radius of a few miles can >>? obtained the raw material for nearly every kind of industry, and ample railroad facilities are afforded to convey these, when manufactured I into vari >usarthdes,to the markets of I the world. It is also so located as to I becoin- the huh of an area of nearly | :j()0 miles in any direction, ami thus j many old and new towns, with popu j lation ranging tniiii 2,nan j() 15,000 or I more, will become tributary to it and make it their centre for supplies, lu the matter of climate, extremes of either heat or coid are said to l?e rarely experienced. Educational facilities are plentiful. Mechanics and day laborers of all kind.' are m constant demand, and at ;n i wages. The grading and paving ? ?i streets and erection of business .locks ami private residences h going on in all parts of the city. The de? mand has far exceeded the supply. But for this fact the recent census Lcould probably show a gain of 5.000 or G.000 per cent increase in populn tion in the past seven or eight, years, instead of only 4,000 percent, won? derful and astounding, however, as are these figures. During tie-pa t year nearly?3,000, 100 were invested in new industries fin- machine shops and manufactur iugestablishments alone, i" Roanoke, pay out monthly iu wages to their employes nearly s:;im,0(I?. Investments in real estate, owing to the gradual but sure enhancement in value, continue as in the pa-t to prove highly profitable. From small ven? tures in this direction, the names of many persons could be given who have amassed fortunes. Indeed there are probably few bet tor or more promising fields in the country for profitable investment-' in real estate than Roanoke. The tide of investment has already turned largely from the West to this direc? tion. In common with many others, the writer shares the opinion and be? lief that Roanoke is destined to have within the next ten years a popula? tion of not less than 50,000 W ithin sixty days Roanoke and her sturdy old sister town, Salem, which has also recently tin-own off her lethargy and taken on a new life, will be connected by a dummy line, now building, and this will practi? cally make the two cities one. This fact of itself will be very appreciably felt in the real estate market From wha t has been said above in a general way, of the wonderful ac? complishments of this young giant of the Southwest during the brief period of six or eight years, and the still grander prospects in store for the future, it can easily be conjectured what sagacious, able and eneigetic men are at the helm guiding and di? recting its business HfTairs?Charles P. Krell in the Real Kstate Herald. A Rig Slander Knit. The Bristol Courier contains the announcement of a big slander suit instituted by the Rev. J. 1'. Straley, of that city, apainst L.

The controversy appeared to be in fun at first, bur. soon developed into a I ' mud slinging*' affair in which the I reverned gentleman seems to have ! been rather worsted.

Births and Deaths. Yesterday nfternon Commissioner of the Revenue Turner completed the records of the births and deaths in the city of Roanoke for the year ending July 1. The records show CSS births and 282 deaths. Although Commis? sioner Turner has been untiring in his efforts to get a record of all the births, yet a large number of the col? ored people, and others, have refused to give the necessary information, and this record, therefore, must be much smaller than the full reco'd would be. The death record is small in proportion to our population. Salem Lot? for Sale. The Salem Development Company will offer for sale tomorrow-, Wednes day, a number of desirable lots The property is well located, close to the freight and pa?senger depot, as well as near the numerous manufacturing establishments now being erected in Salem, and there is no doubt that the sale will be well attended.

The r quisite ?5",000 has been sub? scribed, und if there was ever any doubt about the Roanoke and South em coming to this city, it may be banished now. Last night's meeting of the stock? holders at Gray & Bos well's office was the largest yet held since the ques? tion nf raising the 100003 has been discussed The meeting was made up of representative*business men, and they had coutidence in the plan thai Had been suggested. On motion of Dr. B. A. Parsin R. E. Scott was elected chairman, and Hinton Helper acted as secretary. The committee appointed at the last meeting reported that they had succeeded in bringing the total amount to ?45.750 L. 1>. Powell, In readiug his report, said that the en? tire amount could easily have been raised, but he tm-r several of the com? mittee and upon comparing notes they had concluded that the ?50,000 required had been subscribed, and therefore no further effort bad been made. A miscalculation, he said, must have been made somewhere, but he didn't know how it had been dole-. James S. Simmons then suggested that che soliciting committees be con? tinued for a day or tv.o until the amount wanted was realized. He said that by that time the subscription would be entirely made up ami the stockholders would meet and formally organize the Roanoke and Southern Development and Improvement Com? pany. The motion was not put, as several members had something yet to say. Air. Seott moved that the meeting thank Dr. E A. Parsons for his very liberal subscript ion of ?10,000, and the motion being seconded by Air. Wood rum, the th.inks of the stockholders were offered that gentlemen. He re plied 111 a brief speech. He said he thought when he gave the subscrip ti 11 that he was closing up the books. That was his understanding of the matter, but it seemed that he was mistaken. Dr. Parsons repudiated the sugges? tion that he had been very liberal. His motive, he said, was selfish after all, tor he (Irmly believed that he would more than gei the money he invested in return. He said further that he thought that the enhance? ment of the value iu real eastate iu this city would be at least 1U0 per cent, whi n the road was built into the city. A second count of the subscriptions received was made and several mis? takes corrected. It was discovered then that the total amount received was s-17 inn instead of ?45,750. "Go out an1 holler lire, draw a big crowd around and close up the mat? ter," suggested Mr. Simmons, who. in h s interest in the success of the enter? prise, had missed the train to Blue Ridge Spring. This sally put the meeting in a good humor. The idea of complet ingthe subscrip? tion took the fancy of a number of people, and though several motions to adjourn were made, they were not put. The stockholders seemed de? termined to (inisb the matterat once. "It will be a good thing" taid Dr. Parsons, "if the papers can come out tomorrow morning and announce that the Roanoke and Southern is as? sured. .Suppose we send uptO Salem and get the other ?3,000 he ques? tioned with a touch ot sarcasm in his tone. And the laugh again went around the room." "i ll be one of three to guarantee the money, each putting iu a thou? sand apiece," said L. L. Powell, tak? ing his cigar out of his mouth. The applause was deafening, but nobody was very anxious to follow his ex? ample. "Joe." said W. Btl. Yager, looking over to where Joseph T. Engleby sat, "I'll give ii thousand if you do. What do you say':" Mr Engleby thougut a moment or two while the men sat round the room with their hands raised ready to ap? plaud. They didn't have a great while to wait for the decision. "I'll go you" said Mr. Engleby, quietly, and every man iu the room applauded to the echo. The ?50,000 was at last subscribed, the Roanoke and Southern assured, and then the meeting adjourned to meet at Gray & Bos well's ollice to? morrow evening at ? o'clock, when the organization will be concluded. Drain of W. It. Morris. W. R. Morris, son of J. S. Morris, of Bedford county, and brother of Rev. J. M. Morris, of Glade Spring, died at his home, in the latter place, at 1:30 p m Sunday, aged 27 years. Mr. Morris bad a great many friends and relafives in this city, who will be sorry to learn of Iiis death. The remains were brought here yesterday morning and taken to Blue Ridge Church, iu Bedford county j where services were held at 3 p m. Interment in the burial ground at that place. Work on an Addition. At the American Bridge Works yes? terday a number of carpenters were put to work on the erection of the blacksmith shop.

Has Boon Organized and Will Jioon be In Working Order. The Commercial Club has at las' been organized, and is now an assurei fact. There was a meeting last night al Cray & Bosweli's office, and fifty-fOni names were enrolled as members ol r.he club. Hinton Helper made an address ex-1 plainin* the idea of the institution It bristled with points and th? "P-aker proved that the institution could do more than any ottier one toing to advertite and advance th? interests of the city. He cited Louis villo as an illustration of this point and quoted Henri Watterson as say mg that the commercial supremacy of that place depended more upon it> bujr.ees club and its ramifications than anything else. Dr. E. a. famous gave his experi [ once with the Commercial Club of St. Paul his former home. Jas. S. Simmons also made a brief speecn commendatory of the scheme. He said that there were three organiza? tions that would help the cities pro? gress. A Commercial Club, Keal Estate Exchange, and a board of Presidents. The election of officers resulted in the selection of R. H. Woodrutn,presi dent; C O'Lcary, v:ce-presidenr, Hin tou Helper, secretary, and S. D. Fer? guson, treasurer. President Woodrum made a brief address, giving his ideas of what the club should be. He.-aid that if it was made a cold, hard business organiza? tion it could not be a success. The -ocial feature should be always kept iu sight. This would make it a suc? cess if anything would. The Riu-cs al Lyucbbnrc.
