Large and finthnalustie gathering to
Nominate a Mayor ami Member*
of the Council?
The mail meeting Saturday night was
composed of many of the best citizens of
the town; and, while the gathering was a
large one, showing the interest of the
people in their municipal affairs, it was
orderly and harmonious. The meeting
was called to order by C. E. Sears who
nominated Judge Skecn as chairman.
Mr. G, T. Lovcll was made secretary. Mr.
K. T. Irvine introduced a scries of reso?
lutions regulating the manner of taking
the vote, and Messt?. Maynor, Irvine and
W. B. Kilbourn were appointed a commit?
tee to determine the qualifications of the
voters.
Nominations being in order Judge L.
Turner Maurv nominated Captain J. F.
Bullitt, Jr., for Mayor in a brief but
graceful speech, well expressed and to
the point. No other names being pre?
sented for Mayor, Cant. Bullitt was nomi?
nated bv nu enthusiastic vote*:
In accepting the nomination he thanked
the meeting for the honor and pledged his
best efforts to give the citizens a good
city government. The problem of muni?
cipal government lie said, is now an ab?
sorbing and perplexing one, both in this
country and in Europe. The difficulty is
how to curb the wild and reckless spirit
of the anarchists on one hand and the
greed of corporations on the other. He
thought th?- middle course was the proper
one, aud this course, so far as his oppor?
tunities permitted, he would try to attain,
lie said he would enforce the laws as they
exist alike against friend and foe, and if
they were bud laws they would the sooner
be repealed.
Capt. Bullitt's speech was received with
applause.
Candidates for the council were then
nominated. The vole was taken with the
following result:
Evans, 47: Adams, 31; B. Kilbourn, 33;
Harris, 53; Berryman, 29; H. E. Fox, 38;
Goodloe, 33; Lipscomb, 28; Spalding, 3;>;
Kunkle, 16; Shortt, 19; Maury, 9. When
nominated Judge Maury had requested
the withdrawal of his name, but in vain.
Messrs Evans, Harris, Fox, Spalding,
Goodloe and Kilbourn were declared the
nominees. The new members will be
Messrs Harris and Kilbourn.
The meeting then adjourned.
Trade With Spanish America.
(From the New York Tribune.^
An American merchant went to Nicara?
gua not long ago to make a personal in?
vestigation of the conditions of trade
and the opportunities for selling goods
there. At Leon he met u number of leath?
er dealers who were importing stock from
Germany. He had been u manufacturer
of hoots and shoes for a long time in
New England, and recognized the slock
at a glance as American leather. He
asked the dealers what they were paving
for it, and was told that the price paid to
the German importer was thirty-five cents.
Ke offered at once to sell the same quality
of leather for twenty-one cents, received
orders from the merchants and filled
them. A practical illustration like this is
worth a column of argument respecting
the possibilities of extending American
trade with Spanish-American countries.
There were the German merchants order-,
ing American leather from Boston and
then shipping it from Hamburg to the
west coast of Central America by the
Kosmos steamship line and selling it
there us German leather. The American
leather dealers had considered it imprac?
ticable to trade with that coast, and were
allowing German rivals to sell New Eng?
land goods there at a large advance upon j
their own prices.
American and Foreign Wines*
(Philadelphia Press, i
If the free-trade editors who made
merry over the American wines drank at
the protection banquet in New York knew
their own country, they would know thai
the United States has ceased to be an in?
creasing consumer of French wines.
Americans drink American wines. The'
often drink them under n French label,
but they drink them all the same.
It will probably surprise bur free-trade
friends mightily to learn that in 1890 the
United States imported little more wine
than in 1840, a half century before; i?-ss
than in 1850, forty years ago, one-half as
much us in ISGO or in !H?0, twenty and
ten years since, and no more than in 1880.
Yet here are the figures of our imports <?!
foreign wines and our home production it:

Since 1840 our population has almost
quadrupled nnd wealth has grown ten?
fold, but this country imported within the
merest trifle as much wine in 1840 as in
1890. There are three times as many
people to drink wine now us in 1S.*>0; but
there arc just 1,033,749 gallons less of
foreign wine drank than in 1850.

EMl'T.OVWEVT OF WOMEN'.
Rapid Increase of Their Lamberti iti tue
Government Service and Their
Pay.
(Prom the Boston Globe.)
The death of Gen. Spinner line given
rise to the suggestion that the women of
the country should erect a monument to
his memory, and for the reason that to
him is the credit due of first giving em?
ployment to women in the Treasury De?
partment. Gen. Spinner died with many
claims to the public gratitude, but he did
not originate the practice of employing
women as clerks in the departments.
The first appointee was Miss R. I. Wilson.
She was appointed by Secretary Chase,
Sept. IG, 1801, upon his own motion, and
assigned to duty in that branch of the
Treasury which is known as "The Secre?
tary's Office." The second appointment,
of Miss H. C. Keller, was made April 1.
1862. She was assigned to duty in the
Secretary's office, but in the month of
October, 1862, she wan transferred to the
Treasurer's bureau, and at the same time
two additional appointments were made
by the Secretary, and the appointees were
assigned to duty under the Treasurer.
In tiie years 1861-2-3 there were onlj
twelve women appointed in the Treasury
Department. Of these one was in the
I Secretary's cilice, five, including one
transferred, were in the Treasury, four
were in the Register'd Bureau, and two
j were in the Internal Revenue office. All
these appointments were made by Secre
I tary Chase: but two of them, one of April
4,1*862, and one of July 16, 1863, were
supported by the recommendation of
Gen. Spinner. A< the appointments were
made by Secretary Chase, and as the first
one, which antedates the second by thir?
teen months, wr.s made upon his own mo?
tion, and as he then had the power to ex
cludi women altogether, the chief credit
would seetn to 1>c due to him. '! i.-: a
tradition of the department, supported,
indeed, by the knowledge of many per?
sons, that Gen. Spinner was an early und
earnest advocate of the new policy, but
it is also hue that the twelve women em?
ployed in the years mimed gave such
proofs of intelligence, fidelity, und capa?
city that the exclusion of the sex became
an impossibility. The fact may be worth}
of notice, and especially worthy of notice
by those who have been led to believe
that it i* the first and chief husincss of
every administration to make removals,
that of the twelve women appointed pre?
vious to .Ian. I, 1864, ten are even now in
office. Two of these are paid a salary ol
$1100 each, six arc upon a salary of $1,200
each, and of the two remaining, one re?
ceives a salary of $1,600 and the other a
salary of $1,800.
In those thirty years the number of
women employed by the Government has
increased to many thousands. In all the
various duties imposed upon them they
have shown adequate capacity, and in
faithfulness they are m>t inferior to the
men who are engaged in similar services.
It may be assumed that each year will ? n
largc the sphere of their labors and add
to their compensation, which, speaking
generally, is not equal to the pay of men
engaged in corresponding work.

DECLINE OF GREAT FAMILIES.
Disappearance From Public Life of the
rroiuineiit ISayanl Family.
The announcement thai Thomas F.
bayard, of Deleware. will nol seek a re?
election to the United States Senate
marks the disappearance from public lif<
of a family thai has long held a promin?
ent place in American statecraft. The
father, the uncle, the grandfather and the
great-grandfather of the present bayard,
gays the Chicago Mail, have sat in the
superior chamber of the National Legis?
lature. Important judical and diplomat?
ic positions have fallen to the lot of mem?
bers of this eminent family. The name
of bayard is shining in the annals ol
American politics.
With all deference to Ihe opinion ofj
President Eliot, of Harvard College, it
may be declared thai the trails of great?
ness do not persist indefinitely ineiniuenl
families, as he has contended in a reeenl
magazine article. The doctrine of hered?
ity has its limitations. The most fertile
fields become barren unless frequently
fertilized or carefully conserved by the
eolation of crops. 'I he most intellectual
and virile family stock will nol always
produce irreal men. The fam< u ? Adams
family in Massachusetts has ended in i!."

oursed through the veins of William
Henry Harrison now ambles harmlessly

The bayards oY to-day, who will succeed
to the estate of Thomas V. Bayard, are a
country squire and a Delaware farmer.
While the scions of the obi families de?
teriorate to mediocrity a Lincoln and :>
Grant spring from nobody know: where.
And as the descendau'ts of Lincoln and
Grant gradually return to the obscurity

It is not to the "family stocks" thai
America must look for its leaders in

Italy's Panic.
fXew York Sun Cable Letter.)
A Sun reporter telegraphs from Rome this
evening that the unfavorable bank return has
been followed by the failure of Tomaso Orsini
& Co., the big firm at Capua, with liabilities
estimated at 3,000,000 francs. At Genoa great
excitement prevails owing to the flight of the
bankers 1'ontremoli, father and son, who have
taken with them 000,01)0 francos which belong?
ed to the bank. A big reward has been offer?
ed for their capture, hut they are still at large.
Signor Massa, senior.partner in that house at
Genoa, committed suicide by cutting his throat
and was buried on Thursday.
Murderers Caught.
(Jackson, 5vy., Bustler.)
William Huckett, and his sous Ambrose and
Tobe, charged with the murder of Wm. Hall,
of Estill, were found last week in brown county,
Ind., and brought home foi trial. Some three
years ago they all started to election, and in
passing through a piece of woods, the old man
Puckett struck Hall on the head with a club,
and the two bovs beat him to death, leaving
him where he fell. The murderers were in a
destitute condition when found, having had
nothing to eat for several days. They con?
fessed their crime. Hall was a prosperous
farmer, and his murder created a great deal of
excitement at the time.
"COME SOUTH! YOUNG MAN.
President Harrison, on his tour through
the South, after baring seen the won?
derful growth of Lynchburg, Bedford
City, Uoanokc, Salem, Radford, Pulaski,
Wytheville and Ahingdon and the indus?
trial development in progress along the
line of the Norfolk & Western Railroad,
and viewed the country of Southwest
Virginia, said in his speech to the people
oY Bristol, Va.:
"My Fellow Citizens:?I have found not
only pleasure, but instruction in riding
to-day through the portion of the State
of Virginia that is feeling in a very strik?
ing way the impulse of new development.
Jlis extremely gratifying to notice that
tho&c hidden sources of wealth which
were so long unobserved and so long un?
used arc now being found, and that those
regions, once so retired, occupied by pas?
toral people, having difficult access to the
center of population, are now being rapid?
ly transformed into busy manufacturing
and commercial centers. In the early
settlement of this country emigrants
poured over the Allcghanies and blue
Ridge like waters over an obstructing
ledge, seeking the fertile and attractive
farm regions of the great West. They
passed unobserved these marvelous hid?
den stores of wealth which are now being
brought into use.
'?Having lilled those great basins ol the
West they are now turning hack to Vir?
ginia and West Virginia and Tennessee
to bring about the full development and
production for which time is ripe and
which will surprise the world. It has not
been long since every implement ot iron,
domestic, agricultural and mechanical,
was made lor you iti other States. J he
iron point of the wooden moid board plow,
with which the early farmers here turned
the soil, came from distant States, but
now Virginia and Tennessee are stirring
t heir energies to participate in a large
degree in tuechanicai productions and in
the great awakening ol American com?
merce and American influence which will
lilt the nation to a place among the na?
tions ol the world never before attained.
'"What is to hinder us when we have

to binder this people; possessing by the
Providence of God, ail the elements of

and energy unsurpassed among the na?

its commerce into every sea and uphold?
