Tub city authorites are daily receiving
enquiries iu regard to the $50,000 bonds
soon to be issued for public improvements.
General Ayers is confident there will be
no difficulty met with in placing the bonds.
Let the matter be hurried forward as fast
as possible. Big Stone Gap has a num?
ber of first-class contractors andjbuilders,
who have heroicly stuck to the town dur?
ing the recent stagnation iu building in?
terests, and they need and should have
the work. The city should give them
preference over all others.
Tim case of the commonwealth vs. John
Barker, for grand larceny, was dismissed
without trial at the instance of the com?
monwealth, there being no evidence to
sustain the charges in the warrant, the
property which he was charged to have
stolen having been found in the I liter
mont hotel, where it had been for some
time. Mr. Barker has heretofore always
sustained a good reputation for honesty
and it is with pleasure we do this act of
justice, which will fully vindicate him to
hi* many friends and the public generally.
For some days past the Electric Light

ble trouble with its plant, brought about
iu its effort to furnish lights to its
patrons with an incompetent electrician

is iu no wise chargeabio to the manage?
ment of tho company, as it was tempo?
rarily making out with inexperienced help
till a competent man could be secured,
and in its effort to accommodate the peo?
ple of the town has brought upon itself
several hundred dollars' loss. A compe?
tent man will soon be in charge.

The Revival Service.
The revival service still continues at
Trinity church, in the hands of Revs.
Straley and McManaway. Much good has
been done, and the two churches?Meth?
odist and Baptist?are moving along to?
gether ill the great cause of soul salvation
with perfect unity of purpose.
The result of the meeting so far has
been fifty to sixty professions, with quite
a number of accessions to the two
churches. Such work between churches
looks like genuine Christianity, and goes
farther to impress on the minds of sin?
ners that there is truly something in the
great cause for which they arc working
than all the doctrinal sermons that could
he oreached between now and domsday.
The meeting will doubtless continue for
several days yet.

VuSuable Horse Killed.
Sunday morning a valuable horse, be?
longing to Mr. I. H. Hudson, of the firm
of Thompson & Hudson, was found dead
on East Fifth street bridge. Saturday
evening Mr. Hudson put his horse in the
stable and fasteued the door on the out?
side. Mr. W. C. Thompson also'had his
horse in the same stable. It is thought
that some one opened the door and turned
the horses out, and through pure un?
adulterated, unpardonable meanness ran
the horse on the bridge simply for the
fiendish desire to see him kill himself by
falling through the timbers. If such was
the case, then a hangman's rope is the
kind of a necktie the perpetrator should
wear for about thirty minutes.
