A. BI? Rotors Fined Five Dollars for Heat? ing: a Man With a Pistol. The trial of A. M. Rogers for an as? sault on one Welch on the night of the 22nd instant, was held before Mayor Bul litt on last Saturday. It seems that Rogers claimed to be an acting policeman on the night mentioned, and hearing the firing of a pistol in the neighborhood of Nickel's store went in that direction to arrest the party doing the shooting. He ran upon two men going in the direction of Nickel's store; one of these was Welch and the other was a man named Reed. Reed, on seeing the policeman, ran off, and Welch kept on in the direction of the store. Rogers fol? lowed him up. Welch turned and come back and demanded of Rogers why he was following him. Rogers claimed that he was in pcrsuit of the man who did the shooting. Welch took hold of Rogers and told him to go back and not to follow him. Rogers drew a pistol from his boot leg and struck Welch over the head, felling him to the ground, Welch attempted to rise when he was struck a second and a third time with the pistol, inflicting severe wounds. Welch's appearance in the Mayor's Court was that of a man who had been pretty well used up, his head having been patched all over one side with coat plaster. The case was argued for the prosecution by W. S. Matthews and for the defense by II. C. McDowell, Jr. Mayor Bullitt held that'the offense was a technical one, us Rogers thought he was performing a duty in trying to arrest the man, and fined him five dollars, the lightest penalty he was allowed to impose. Rogers is not a member of the police force, but as he had been called upon on that night to assist in guarding the jail he thought he had a right to discharge all the duties of a policeman.

A copy?Teste: J. K. birrs, Clerk. Bullile <fc MclfcmeJI, p. ?y. "COME SOUTH! YOUNG MAN." President Harrison, on his tour through the South, after having seen the won? derful growth of Lynchburg, Bedford City, Roanoke, Salem, Radford, Pulaski, Wytheville and Abingdon 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 of Bristol, Va.: "My Fellow Citizens:?I have found not only pleasure, but instruction in riding to-day through the portion of ihe State of Virginia that is feeling in a very strik? ing way the impulse of new development. 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 regions, once so retired, occupied by pas? toral people, having diflicuit 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 Alleghanies and Blue Ridgejclike 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 filled those great basins of the West they arc now turning back 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 of iron, domestic, agricultural and mechanical, was made for you in other States. The iron point of the wooden mold board plow, with which the early farmers here turned the soil, came from distant States. But now Virginia and Tennessee are stirring their energies to participate in a large degree in mechanical productions and in the great awakening of American com? merce and American influence which will lift the nation to a place among the na? tions of the world never before attained. "What is to hinder us when we have secured the markets of our own States that we shall reach out and enter into successful competition in the markets of other parts of the world: 1 say what is to hinder this people; possessing by the Providence of God, all the elements of material wealth; endowed with a genius and energy unsurpassed among the na? tions of the earth, shall again have on the great seas a merchant marine living the flag of the common country and carrying its commerce into every sea and uphold? ing its honor in every port? "I am glad to-day to stand for this mo? ment among you and to express my sym? pathy with any and every interest that tends to develop you as a people. I am glad lo stand with you on one common platform of respect for the constitution; differing as some of us may do in our opinions as to what the law should be and how it should be applied; having in view one common devotion of obedience to the law us the majority of our people, by their own representatives, make it. "I shall carry away from here a re? newed impulse to public duty; a new in? spiration as a citizen, and that too, of a country whose greatness is only dawning. "A.nd now let me express to you the pleasure 1 shall have in every good that can come to you as a community and to each of you as individuals. May peace, prosperity and social order dwell in all your families, and the fear and love of God in every home."
