The ICeport of the Hoard of Health Will Gome up for Further Consideration on Mouday?Councilman Groves' Resolu? tion to Give Employment to the l'oor Adversely Reported?Another Motion of the Same Nature Referred?The Mayor Urges the Fraetioe of Economy and Suggests That the Poor he Looked After. An adjourned meeting of City Council was held last night with the following members present: Boehm, Clingenpoel, Crablll, DavleB, Dickerson, Ouggan, Faokenthall, Graves, Groves. McClell? and, Hough, Johnson, Moomaw, Pattie, Stevenson, Strickland, Terry and Presi? dent Buckner. Council took up the regular order of business, which was reading the calen? dar. The first bill on the calender was bill No. 59, which is an ordinance guaranteeing Interest on bonds of 810, 000 for the city hospital. On motion of 8. Hamilton Graves the bill wan passed by. The clerk then read bill No. 04, which 1b an ordinance providing rules and regulations governing City Council. These rules are similar to the ones by which Counoil is now governed. On motion this was adopted. The next ordinance was bill No. 0>, providing for the opening of Chestnut street and purchasing property necessary thereto. On motion of Mr. Pattie this was laid on the table. Bill No. 60 waa next read, which pro? vides fines to be imposed on any one clinging to the street cars for the pur? pose of surreptitiously stealing a ride. On motion of Mr. Stevenson the penalty was fixed at 8"> and the bill was adopted. The next bill taken up was bill No. 58, prohibiting anyone from making use of obscene or profane language or post? ing obscene pictmeion the streut or dis? tributing obscene literature or obscene pictures on the streets or in public. This was offered by Mr. Groves at a previous meeting. The penalty attached is not loss than 810 or more than 820 Mr. McClelland and Mr. GrovoB spoke in favor of the bill. The bill was amended by striking out the section relating to pictures and adopted. The next bill waa an ordinance offered by Mr. Groves requiring interest on daily balances of city money in banks and named as city depositories the First National Bank, the Commercial Bank and the Exchange Bank. This was placed on the calendar. The street committee made a report on bill 09, which was offered by Mr. Groves, to employ one hundred men at fifty cents a day to do street work. The committee thought the bill vory im? practicable, would run the city to a great expense, and not half ithe money expended would reach the benefioiarles, as it would cost a great deal to furnish material, tools and foremen. The com? mittee embodied in the report a resolu? tion that when anyone received aid from the overseers of the poor and wanted to repay the city, the board of public works could employ them to work on the streets. A petition from the Y. M. C. A. that an electric light be placed at the inter? section of Kirk avenue and Jefferson street was read by Mr. Groves and re? ferred to the light committeo. The report of the street committee was again read and discussed. Mr. Bucknor, Mr. Pattie in the chair, spoke in favor of the adoption of tbe report, and said bill 09 was really in favor of the moneyed men of the city. Ho showed bow the laborer would only get about 80.25 after shaving his script, how it would establish a standard of 50 cents a day for labor; it would bankrupt the city and Inundate the treasury with script run in by capitalists, who would purchase it at ruinous prices with which to pay taxes. He would vote to sustain the report of the street committee. On the vote being taken tbe vote stood ayes, 17, and noes, 1; Mr. Groves being the only one to vote in the negative. Mr. Groves then offered another bill which is to the effect that during tho winter months the board of public works be empowered to employ twenty-five men with families at 81 a day to work on the streets, the money to come outof tbe recent tax bill offered by himself, taxing corporations of various kinas as long as there was any money of that kind in the treasury. Mr. Moomaw moved that this bill also be referred to the streot committee. Mr. Hough made a speech reflecting on the charity of the Council because it refused to refund a pound fine of 84 re? commended by himself at a former meeting. Mr Fackentball said that state ? mont was. fallacious and that he would ten timos over rather give the 84 him? self than to vote it on the city, which he thought would be illegal. Mr. Moomaw also thought the remarks of the gentleman from the Fourth ward were unjust. The vote web on the motion to refer to the street committee. The result was 15 to 3. The three negative votes were Boehm, Groves and Hough. A communication was read from Sewer < Constructors Dyer, Vaughan & Co. say? ing they would be willing to continue work if the city would issue to them warrants for the amount, and the war? rants would not be hocked about the street, but they had made arrangements to place the warrants with monied people. This was referred to the finance and street committees. The fire and water committee re? ported a resolution asking tor a hydrant to be placed on Bullitt street s. e. They recommended that the Armour Packing Company bo allowed to build a corru* gated iron building in rear of thoir place on Norfolk avenue. The report was received and adopted. Mr. Groves offered a resolution that the tiro and water committee bo re? quested, in connection with the city *OAN< 3KE, VA.. SATURDAY THOSE ?13 GIVEN AWAY.

No. 133 Camp hell uvonuo southwest. solicitor, to look into the matter and see it the Gas and Water Company had the legal right to,charge the city for watoc used fcr municipal purposes. This was adopted. A message from the mayor was read urging the City Counoll to practice economy. He also recommended that proper quarantine measures be taken to protect the city against smallpox. He thought at the proper time the city should assist the worthy poor dur? ing the coming winter. A report was read from the board of health reoommending that steps be taken to guard against smallpox said to exist in the Southwestern part of the State. They had already issued an order enforcing vaccination and the physi? cians were holding themselves in readi? ness to do the woik as soon as this action was ratified by Council. The president of the board of health, Dr. S. G. Staples, was present and explained the manner more fully and stated that nothing could be done until so ordered by Council. Dr. Staples thought the danger was really greater than the people were aware of. Mr. Buckner said the reports of the smallpox In Southwest Virginia were greatly exaggerated. That he was at Bristol Thursday night and learned that there wore only five cases at Salt vllle. which were under guard. Dr. Staples thought the vaccine points would probably cost about ?50 per 1.000 points. It was absolutely Im? possible to state bow many people In the city would require vaccination. Mr. Buckner moved that tbe matter be referred to the health committee to re? port at an adjourned meeting Monday night. This was adopted. A communication was read from W. W. Fortune In regard to payment for section 19 of sewer work done by him. lie thought the SI,013 allowed was in? sufficient. Mr. Hough moved that tho matter be referred to tbe sewer com? mittee, which was adopted. A communication was read from the fire board protesting against the city's selling any of the apparatus without consulting the fire board. This was referred to the fire and water com? mittee. A communication was read from Capt. J. F. Teiry, asking for his salary from September 20, when he was suspended, until October 23, when he was indicted. This was referred to the finance oom mittee. Mr. Graves, chairman of the ordinance committee, offered the ordinance look? ing to the amendment of the city char? ter. On motion of Mr. Crablll, the press of the city will be allowed the privilege of examining the calendar. A gentleman from Lyncnburg who Is agent for a patent right bed, appeared before Council and exhibited the bed. On motion of Mr. GroveB the mattor was referred to the public property commit? tee In connection with the board of health to examine the bed to ascertain If it was suitable for use in the city almshouse. The Council then adjourned to meet Monday night at 7:30 o'clock. Special matinee at the Academy this afternoon for ladies and children. SPANISH CONSUL SUICIDES. Leaped While Entirely Nude From a Fourth Story Window. Baltimohk, Nov. 17.?A most sensa? tional suicide was committed in the northwest section of the city this morn? ing. While North Butaw street was thronged with early risers a scene at the fourth story window of a handsome brick building near the triangle of Eutaw street, St. Mary's and Madison avenue attracted the attention of passersby. An entirely nude man was crouching on the window sill, preparing to jump. A moment later he plunged headlong to the ground. The man was Senor Carlos Diaz Comez de Cadiz, the consul of the kingdom of Spain at Baltimore. The body struck the earth with ter? rific force. The skull was crushed and death was instantaneous. There is no doubt that Diaz committed the deed, while in a fit of insanity. The matinee at the Academy this after? noon promises to be tbe fashionable event of the season. Fire Deatroys a C. & O.

Owknsbobo, Ky., Nov. 17.?Fire last night destroyed the Chesapeake and Ohio southwestern freight depot, ten cars of coal, six oars of merchandise, two large tobacco warehouses owned by Jay Hardy and E.

Borne time before court convened yesterday morning the Hustings Court room was filled with spectators, drawn there through Interest in the- riot cases that were under consideration. The sergeant announced that the grand jury was adjourned until Monday. Counsel resumed argument on the plea of abatement entered by the de? fense, and the matter was deferred until 2 o'clock In the afternoon. The case of D. H.

The trial of the accused porsons, Walter Davis, D. D. Kennedy, A. Perry, Thomas Burt, James G. Richardson, S. W.

Ammet, M. T. C. Gordan, J. C. Davenport. The first witness introduced was Wil? liam G. Baldwin, who stated that tho first he saw of JameB G. Richardson on the night of the riot, was in tho hard? ware store of Nelson & Myers. Saw him five or six times that night. Heard him address crowds in an incendiary manner and tell them to break open the hard? ware stores and pi-cure guns and dyna? mite and kill the soldiers and blow up the jail. He also saw D. D. Kennedy and heard him tell the crowd to disperse In small gangs to search the town and find the negro. He also heard Mr. Rich? ardson say that Mayor Trout ought also to be hung. The next witness was J. C. Wallace, who testified that Richardson headed the attaok made on the jail. Saw My era in the hall of the courthous* and on the street, and heard bim making decla? rations. Sergeant J. B. Traynham was thou placed on the stand. He desoribed how the soldiers and officers were stationed and also the attack on the jail. He did not see any of the accused until after the firing. After that he saw Brown Myers In the jail looking for the pris? oner. There were twenty-five of them. Mr. Richardson also went through tho jail, and demanded of him to open all the cells that he might see if tho pris? oner had been removed. He couldn't recall the words used, but he was mak? ing threats against the prisoner, and said they were determined to hang the prisoner. S. W. Fuqua came to the jail inquir? ing after Thomas Smith, and seemed determined to have him. Phillip Lockett was also placed on the stand, but his evidence was not very important. Tho trial will be continued to day. _ TBE WKATHKK, Forecast for Virginia: Generally falrj west winds; colder Saturday. SR 18, 1*93. PR1 THE CITY IS IN DANGER. A Tramp With Smallpox Passed Through Thursday. The action of City Council last night in (ailing 10 take immediate action on too report of the board of health rela? tive to tho smallpox was met with disfavor by a number of prominent physicians and other citizens of the city, in view of the fact that Roanoke's exposure to the dread disease if far greater than It is generally thought to be. v It is a fact, although not yet widely known, that a tramp with a fully de? veloped case of smallpox passod through the oity Thursday and probably spent several hours here. The man stopped in Vinton and was begging food from door to door when he was mot by Dr. Eubank, a physician of that place, who saw at once tbat the man was tbe vic? tim of tbe smallpox in a malignant form. Dr. Eubank, knowing that the author? ities of Vinton had no means of coping with tbe disease, told the tramp that he must immediately get out of town or he would be arrested, which order was obeyed by the tramp. But the Incident does not end here Dr. Bowyer, a prominent physician of Bedford, was in Roanoke yesterday and is authority for the statement that a tramp, presumably the same one, with a fully developed case of smallpox, arrived in that city on a freight train Thursday night and was at once ar? rested and isolated. As It Bomoiimes takes fourteen days for the smallpox to develop, it i* highly probable that next week will witness tho plague In a bad form In Southwest Virginia, and thlB city Is liable to be a prominent co'ntor of the pestilence. A number of citizens last night ex? pressed the opinion to a representative of Tue Times that Council made a grave mistake in not at once acting on the recommendation of the board of health, as delays are dangerous, add cited sev? eral examples, notably that of Mon troal, whoso council refused to tako action before the plague struck that city. It would evidently be wise for the citizens to taue tho matter in their own hands and have themselves and tJhelr families vaccinated by their family physicians. There Is a statute law In Virginia that requires tho pupils of the public schools to bo vaccinated, but It has never been enforced In Roanoke. The delay in Counoil Is partly due to the cost of the virus, whloh will prob? ably be from 8200 to S500, and for the payment of tho phyalcianB for perform? ing the vaccination on Indigent people, the estimated cost of whloh Is $2,000. Conservative citizens say that while they are aware of the condition of the treasury and realize that Council must practice economy, that this is very poor economy; that this Is a crlslB tbat must be met even If It should cost the city a few thousand dollars. They point to the fact that should the smallpox break out In tbe city, It would moan a complete paralizatlon of the industries and commerce which, owing to tho financial depression, Is already towing at a very low ebb. Would it not bo better, they argue, to expend a few thousand dollars as a pre? caution than to sit supinely by and watch a delay that might moan ruin? It Is undoubtedly the duty of every good citizen to ba vaccinated. Special uintlnee at the Academy this afternoon for ludies and children. OENKKAL GORDON AT BROOKLYN.

Treasury Officials Deny That Agents Are Working For It. a Circular Which Will Probably Decrease the Amount of Money Sent For Re? demption?Falling Orr In the Custom Revenues?Prominent Democrats In Coaferonce Considering the Recent Landslide. ? Washington-. Nov. 17.? The Londoa stock exchange rumor that the United States had sent over an agent to nego? tiate a gold loan is regarded a? simply an eoho of the inaccurate statement re? cently published in New York that Sub treasurer Jordan had gone abroad for that purpose. Treasury officials assert positively that no agent has been sent abroad by the United States to enter upon any negotiations for a gold loan. No such arrangement, even if contem? plated, could be carried to completion before the meeting of Congress In regular session on December 4. This circular was issued at the Trea sury Department to day: Treasury of the United States, Washington, Nov. 17, 1893. On and af tor November 27, 1393, the charges for the transportation of na? tional bank notes to the Treasury of the United States for redemption under the act approved June 20,1874, (IS statutes, 123) must be paid by the party making the arranagements If tue charges are not prepaid the amount thereof will be deducted from the proceeds. The re mlttanceB at Government contract rates. D N. Morgan, Treasurer. Approved? J. G Carlisle, Secretary of Trea? sury. It is believed the circular will de? crease the amount of money sent on for redemption, and releive the Government of advancing money to the banks. The net treasury balance continues to de docl'no and at the close of business to? day stood at 890,000,810, of which 835, 794 7.">7 is in gold and 810,807,063 in cur? rency. So far this fiscal year the custom revenues have fallen off 821,000,000 as compared with the corresponding period of last year. For tho same period internal revenue receipts have de? creased only 88,000,000. Commissioner Miller, in speaking of tho matter to? day, said ho expected Internal rev enue receipts to Increase from now on, and the total at the end of tho fiscal year of 1894 would nearly equal the receipts for the year 1893, oven though they were now 88,000,000 behind. This expression of opinion, he said, was ' based upon the correspondence and in terviows he had with large wholesale dealers In tobacco and liquor. The dullness affected their business very materially, but it was now improving, as the daily receipts showod. Chairman Harrity,ex-Postmaster Gen? eral Don Diokinson, ex-Assistant Sec retary of State Josiah Qulnoy, ex -Con? gressman H. T. Cable, of Illinois; Hon. John Hopkins, of Illinois, and other prominent Democrats have had two or three informal conferences in this city, at which a suggestion tbat headquarters ot the Democratic national committee be opened hero was discussed and con? sidered. The proposition is that the Democratic national committee shall give some at? tention to the election of 1394 with a view of having a systematic campaign made. Tho matter is to be further con? sidered and is likely to take definite shape soon. All tho gontlemon named left for their homes this afternoon, but the statement an to their purpose to make a concerted effort to check the further progress of tho recent landslide was obtained authoritively. They wore all at tho White House to-day. Special prices for the matinee at the Academy of Music this afternoou. COL O'FKRK ALL IN RICHMOND.
