A 3??t*? of Disturbance* finally ftesitlt In
a Tragedy, the .Itoartiti of July o
Btootly Pay.
There have been several ?ists rbances
the peace at Norton recently. A shcrt
time ago a negro attempted to board the
N", & W. train with a Winchester -rifle.
The conductor objected, the negro an?
swered impudently and the brakesman j
handed the conductor a pistol with which
he opened fire on the negro, but missed
him. The negro fired on the brakesman,
sending a Winchester ball through his
shoulder and then fired at the conductor.
The firing became quite general, and the
negro was shot whale retreating, but not
badly hurt. He soon returned with more
ammunition, his supply having been cx
hausted, but was arrested and jailed.
Saturday, last, a still more serious dis?
turbance occurred. It seems Webster
Snodgr&ss and Morg Tbacker had been at
enmity for some weeks. As Morg Thack
er was riding op to a store in West Norton,
Snodgrass, who had been drinking and
who was standing on the porch, pulled his
pistol and shot Tbacker deed. It is said
Tbacker was unarmed and not a word was
spoken. Snodgrass was arrested and
jailed at Gladeville, being escorted there
by four deputies armed with Winchesters.
It is said considerable excitement pre?
vailed at Norton over the affair.
On the same day a drunken riot oc?
curred in East Norton which the two po?
licemen and other officers had much diffi?
culty in quelling. There was general
fighting by the crowd vyho seemed crazed
with liquor. No one, however, was killed
though several were badly wounded.
The town has now a good 'Squire and
two policemen and it is believed better
order will be preserved. 'Squire Jenkins
is said to be a man of courage and resolu?
tion and intends to enforce the law.
One great difficulty in overcoming the
lawless elements is due to the fact that it
is so difficult to convict the offenders when
they are taken to Gladeville and tried.
A number of atrocities have passed un?
punished though strong cases were made
against the offenders.
THE rOLICK GUARD.
The annual Meeting Is Held and New Offi?
cers and Several Additions to the
Force nre Elected. * i
The annual meeting of the Police Guard
was held in the Commercial Club building
on Friday evening, July 3rd. Twenty-one
members were present?Captain J. F. Bui
litt Jr., having been elected Mayor of the
town, resigned his membership and the
Captaincy of the Guard. His resignation
was accepted with regret, and he received
a Tote of thanks fer zealous and faithful
services during his management of the
Guard. Capt. Bullitt's military education
and military temperament made him an
ideal leader of this gallant force of volun?
teer police, and the remarkably good order
the town has enjoyed for the past two
years is very largely due to tbe pluck and
public spirit and untiring activity mani?
fested by the Guard under Capt. Bullitt's
able leadership. He was elected an hon?
orary member of the Guard.
Mr. H. C. McDowell, Jr., after two years
of gallant and conspicuous services, re?
signed his position in the Guard. He also
was made an honorary member.
The meeting was called for the election
of officers for the ensuing year. Mr. R. T.
Irvine was elected Captain, and accepted
the position in an appropriate speech.
The Guard is to be congratulated on the
selection.
Mr. E. T. Shortt, who has served so)
acceptably the past year as Secretary and j
Treasurer, was re-elected to that position, j
The Guard recommended G. E. Gilly to
the Mayor for re-appointment as City Ser?
geant for ths next year.
The following citizens were elected
members of the Guard : 0. Rs Evans, Dr.
H. P. Howard, G. F. Packard and W. P.
Lip8comb. The esprit de corps of this
organization is well maintained and the
good order of the town will be proiected
by this unique and efficient body of volun?
teer police.

of Virginia that is feeling in a very strik?

It is extremely gratifying to notice that
those hidden sources of wealth which
were so long unobserved and so long un?
used are now being found, and that those'
j regions, once so retired, occupied by pas?
toral people, having difficult access to the
I center of population, are now being rapid
j ly transformed into busy manufacturing
; and commercial centers. In the early
settlement of this country emigrants
I poured over the Alleghanies and Blue
I Ridgc;dike waters over an obstructing
I 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 tilled those great basins of the
West they are now turning back to Vir?
