Active Preparations Beinp; Made and the men Already Selected in case of a Declaration of War With Chili. V'.".;HlN"i.iuX, I). ('., Dec 2.S. The V. -hinton correspondent of the New Yerk Jri iil, telegraph.-; tliat paper as follow.-,; I have obtained the most valuable information that has et been made j)ubl; regarding the Chilian affair. Theic is no question that the ;ul'o,nistration fully experts a refusal of Chili to comply with the demand for an apology and indemnity and is ready to ask Congress for power to declare war for which j (reparations have been and arc still being made. Chili feeling that she is in the right is determined not to apologize, even at the cannon's mouth. Snch is the situa tion upon the diplomatic chess board. Chili has not yet asked for arbitration, but it is known to the cabinet and to your correspondent that she is likely to do so. Minister Montt, ihe Chilian minister hasali along seriously doubted the intention of this government to dc Lire war in event of Chili's refusal to accede to our demands. To-day. however, he realized his mistake and tiie result was I hat lie cabled to Presi dent Montt that the situation here was very serious ; that this government meant fight, and the navy was being rapidly placed on a war footing. This itself is startling news and there is more of the same sort. Not only has the navy been made available in event of hostilities but great activity has taken place in the army and both departments are now ready to act in concert at a moment's notice. I have it that Admiral (Iherardi will be placed in command of the naval forces. It is also pretty definitely settled that Gen. Miles will have command of the land forces. The plans have already been made to promptly move 10.000 troops. The men have been selected, the transports provided and all is ready to place this force on Chilian service soon after war is formally de clared. It is proposed to take these troops from the regular servit e. The western forts, which they will leave will be garrisoned by militi.i and fiontiersmen. New York and other lare cities where troops are not needed vrid also be drawn on. These troops as planned will leave the I'nited states from several different points. Some will embark at San Francisco, others at Calvcstion, New ( hleans, Key West, and other Southern points. Of course arbitration would seriously interfere with ail this. Minister Montt, who is an exceedingly cautious man and who known the ditticalties ot advising the home government when it is not believed there that this government means war, has .it last suggested to Picsident Montt the propriety and the advisa bility of asking this goverment to lay the facts in connection with the Balti more's case before a board of arbitra tion. I am told that there is consid erable doubt as to just how this sug gestion would be recieved. MEN WHO INJURE A TOWN. 1 Klkin Courier, j The following are a few of the class that stand in the way of the advance ment of a town, and area detriment to anv community : f irst, those who go out of town to do their traiding. Second, those who oppose improve ment. Third, those who prefer a quiet town to one of push and busi ness. Fourth, those who run down a town. Fifth, those who think business can be done slyly, without advertising. Sixth, those who distrust public spirited men. Seventh, those who op-pose every movemct which does not orig: ate with themselves. I'.ig'nth, those ho put on a long face when a stran er talks ol locating in town. Ninth. I hose who oppose every enterprise which does not appear of personal benefit to themselves. Tenth, those who seek to injure the credit of in dividuals. Education is the chief detense of nations. No man is free who is not master of himself You must go after success not come to von. it will The haughty are always the victims j ot ti.eir own rash conclusions. N man can J expect to successfully wear the trousers ot comfort unless he buckles on the suspenders of hard work. fl'rMX Ml m y i v. f A'-V I NO' H,:iL ap- X r n its wtn writtc-n in t li e hitry oft ii -vi irld. a cli.nptt-r V more wn!i!"rl i'.l t'n.::i ;:Tiy in tin- wou ai. i )!: rliny an-.-!

(iieat as has htell the j r ic-re:-s of tiie ivorld, 1 1 ! hijh wa.ler marl; has only been reached in certain favored spaces, and vast continents are still reserved for the maturing! of lod"s purposes. To our nation it has been a year whose liour.tcousiics!- and peace have been unparalleled hi the history of any country. The seasons have poured from their laps their g"arnercd treas ures, and north, south, cast and west rejoice in abundance. The faces of na ture and the elements have been pro pitious, and the smile of Provi dence seems to rest in benediction upon the land. In the social world too, the fruitap- has been abundant. Never be fore in the history of oir country has so much good been done by earnest in dividuals and society for the reclama tion of evil, the retorm of abuses, and the amelioration of the condition of the deserving- poor. The harvest of good deeds in that has been great in spite of the fact there are stiil fallow fields, and that much has been left unattempted. There are those, of course, who take gloomy views of the times, who see the evil, but fail to recognize the pood, and declare that morally the world is grow ing weaker and more degenerate with each year. Hut truth, the mighty leaven, is jrt rminating, dropped in the dark soil of ignorance ami error; and hidden away from sight, folded ii the mirsting sheath. is the sprout which shall one day becom the giant oak-, "neath which our nation shall be sheltered from storms and noontide heats. Not in tin- spirit of the Pharisee, but in that of reverent humility, should we view our blessings of the past year, and have a fraternal sympathy for the fam-i-diing peasants hose cry goes up from the hanks of the Volga, anil from the slopes of the I'ral mountains; for the exiled race, whose wandering through the wilderness of prejudice and injus tice is as cruel as their forty years' pro bation in the desert; for the poverty-oppressed masses of our kindred nation, whose mother tongue is ours, and with v. iiom w -claim a common ancestry, and for 1 ho-e nat iois who sit in darkness, or giit a'-out w ith misty and. uncertain light, but longing for perfect day.

The year lies before us. a mystery as great as the mystery of all mysteries death. We meet it with high resolve, but every day in our life in reality marks a similar anniversary, and every night witnesses the end of a year, a step taken irrevocably from time tiv ward eternity, for there, and there only, can we meet face to face that shrouded shape, the Future, which for ever l!ccs as we approach. If we would truly live well, the vears, whether spent in work or meditation, in pleas ure or pain, should yield us something more than material goid. which is as evanescent as t lie morning mists. The outline:- of our lives are drawn for us by circumstances, training, heredity and other imluenees above our control, but day by day we are filling in the light and shade, the coloring in the pic ture, and it is the coloring that will make or mar the beauty of that crea tion that fchali hang in the gallery of ood.

OWEN -O- A Well Known. Popular and Successful Bus iness Man. -o- Uricf Sketch of the Proprietor and Owner of Davis's Ware house. Together With Some Comments on the Business He Has Built Up. 0 The don) I.kak does not tire of well doing, nor of speaking in praise and commendation of the men who have been instrumental in the upbuild ing of Henderson. Conspicuous among hor successful businc-si men of to-day is Owen Davis, the capable and popular young tobacco warehouseman, whose name and bus iness are known of all patrons of this market. It is no ea-y matter to do full and ample justice to the reputation of such a man, and in the brief sketch of his business career which we here pre sent we cannot do so. Justly recognized as one of the tirst ami most successful business men of Henderson, a man whose judgment' tact and forethought are far in advance of his year, who has done his part in building up and sustaining this market, Mr. Davis is a typical warehouseman and his praises are sung by hundreds of strong friends and patrons through out the tobacco growiug sections of this State and Virginia who seek Hender son as their most profitable place to sell their tobacco in. Mr. Davis first stepped into the arena, as a warehouseman in lss;.';, being as sociated with his brother Mr. Thomas A. Davis. It is needless to say that from this time his course has been on ward and upward, and his success rapid and continuous, surpassing the expec tations of his most sanguine friends. Although he was without experience in the warehouse business he was not long in demonstrating his aptitude therefor, and by indomitable energy pluck and perseverance overcame diffi culties that would have stood as insur mountable boarders in the way of less determined and courageous men, and at once forced his way to a foremost position among the most widely kuown and successful men in the profession, if we may so call it. As we have already said Mr. Davis engaged in the warehouse business in 183, in connection with his brother Mr. T. A. Dayis, as proproprietors of the Side Light warehouse. Both gen tlemen were full of energy and deter mination and their establishment in a short while got to be a household word throughout the territory tributary to the Henderson market and its trade grew with each returning season. Davis Brothers continued to do business until the tail of lssT, when the firm was dis solved by mutual consent, Mr. T. A. Davis retiring. Mr. Owen Davis con tinued business alone. With renewed energy he applied himself, his chief aim being the welfare of his patrons, to which purpose he worked with a will and fidelity seldom equalled, and his business continued to irrow until it CLAUDE HUNTEB, Fire, Lite, Accident, Tornado, Surety Bond and Steam Boiler INSURANCE AGENCY Storage Warehouse Building, HENDiRSON, LOSSES ADJUSTED Over $252,000,000 Casl Assets Represented OliOANIZIC'l 1 8 19 1 86 1 1 82 i 1794 1 85 2 1866 1 7 10 iEtlia Fire, of Hartford, Commercial Union, of London, -i -mm 7 UUaraian, ot London, Insurance Co. of North America, Lancashire, of England, Queen, of Liverpool Sill!

WATCHES A X Vt .1 E W E LRY REPAIRER DAVIS. became necessary for him to have more room to accommodate his large and rapidly growing patronage. In 1888 he purchased the new and more commo dious warehouse which had been erect ed on the corner of Main and Horner streets, by Mr. Charles Watkins, and moved into that establishment. With characteristic energy and a linn resolution to build up a business that should not only be creditable to himself and profitable to his patrons, but. to the town as well. Mr. Davis continued to labor most indefatigably i until he has now a trade and achieved a reputation of which any warehouse man might justly feel proud. A. man of great energy and business capacity this is but the ripened fruit of such per istent and intelligent application. Well equipped by natural talent and expe rience, he possesses in a high degree the peculiar qualities of the warehouse man, and his career has been marked by a succession of achievements that indicate the native mental vigor and well directed energy that has by no means yet reached its greatest possi bilities. Indeed, Mr. Davis's career has shown those rare qualities that en title him to a high place among suc cessful business menand make him a most useful and valuable citizen as well. He is a man of sense, discern ment, sagacity and judgment ; a bold, daring, intelligent and clear-sighted business man, whose success has been well deserved and at which no one more heartily rejoices than does the Gold Leaf. Mr. Davis is an upright, trustworthy gentleman who has won the high and honorable position he occupies among successful and respected business men bv untiring and persistent efforts hard and steady licks. He is essentially a I man of the people, affable and courte ous, unirersally respected, and justly merits the houor bestowed and patron age given him. An industrious and ireless worker, he labors zealously for the best interests of his patrons, count ing every man his friend and favorite alike, from the humblest to the highest. On the eve of the Xew Year Mr. Davis throws his banner triumphantly to the breeze determined if possible to surpass all former efforts as a live and progres sive warehouseman, and to spare neither care nor expense in making it to the interest of those who sell tobacco with him. And those who know Owen Davis need not be told that he is the man to carry into successful execution any re solve he may make. He is prepared in every way to take care of the farm ers' interest and will at all times do all in his power to promote and protect it. isr. c- AND SETTLED HERE.
