Invested In Winston-Salem in the Last Six MonthsInteresting Notts of the Piedmont Metropolis. (Special Cor. State Chronicle.) Winston, N. C, Aug. 29. It has nev er been told the Chronicle readers that therja has been $1,000,000 invested in Winston-Salem by people outde of the city within the past six months, but nevertheless it is a fact. The Daily of this city yesterday appeared announcing this, and it has set many of our people to work calculating. The figures seem steep but I have them when anybody doubts. The fact that outsiders have had confidence to the amount of one million dollars in the future of a city just in the beginning of her developmentand before she has reached fifteen tb Vi&and inhabitants, speaks wonders of i' r Vreat growth that is to take place the next five years.

Worth, Business Agent of the State Alliance, desires the Chron icle to correct an error that has been circulated that the State Alliance adopted jute bagging for cotton this year. The National Alliance recommends any substitute for jute, and the State Alliance endorses the demands of the National Alliance. While jute bagging under this firm, who took away several touch the property of the West End Hotel and Land company, which has a capital of $300,000. Your correspondent saw to-day the contour map of the latter conp.viy'u lands and also a complete plan of the elegant resort hotel which is to cost over a hundred thousand itself. The hotel is to have a long, fine front with right and left wings, which are curved around to totally cap the front view of the knoll. From the centre will be a long wing to the rear, the view from which will be superb. To-day the hands who are working on the boulevard, completed the clearing of th- wood and the grading will be com pleted within a snort time.

In the Senate this morning Mr. Edmunds of fered the following resolution which went over for the present: Resolved, That when the two houses adjourn on the 19th of September, 1890, it be to meet on tho 10th of November, 1890. The tariff bill was taken up, the pend ing question being on the finance com- i. i i - j . j i ji ii aimee s acenameii to xne salt para graph to strike out the provision allow ing drawbacks on salt in exported meat. Mr. Mcrrnerson moved to strike out the entire paragraph, the effect of which would be to place salt on the free list. Rejected, yeas 15; nays 29; a party vote. The committee's amendment to strike out the proviso allowing drawbacks on salt in exported meats was then dis cussed. In reply to a question of Mr. Vest, Mr. Sherman said that the general pro vision in the bill for a drawback of du ties on exportations, would protect the export meat business from any discrim ination under this paragraph. Mr. Vest wanted to know how the salt used in curing meats for export was to be identified. The drawback provision required that the material on which a drawback was paid should be identified. Why would not this general drawback provision extend to fish. Mr, Allison said that he had voted in committee against striking out the pro viso because he believed, with Mr. Vest, that the general provision in regard to drawbacks would not apply to salt.

When she entered the room her husband told her he had already taken it. Some few hoars after, Mrs. Bond awoke and found Mr. Bond had quitted his bed. She went for neighbors and the prem ises were searched. .t a trace ot him was found. A colored wcrpnr ? -Vted that just before day she f.aw the ure of a man through her window going in the direc tion of the Black Pond on the Panola farm. Tracks of a bare foot were found near the edge of the water. Robert Banks, watchman at the wharfs, heard a splash in tho river as if a plank had been thrown or fallen from the rail road bridge. Early in the day it was hoped with some reason that he had only wandered away and would be found alive. But as the day wore on and no trace or clew of him could be found, unlsss they were those of tho colored woman and Mr. Banks, the belief became general that he was drowned, it might be by accident, but more probably by his own act.

At a convention three weeks ago Mr. Newland was deolared nominated, but afterwards it was discovered that McDowell, which voted for Mr. New land, only had twenty votes, instead of twenty-two.

The Republican Senators voting against the committee were, Al lison, Cullom, Edmunds, Hawley, ln galls, Jones of Nevada, Mitchell, Plaf f, Plumb, Sherman, Teller, Wasbburu and Wilson of Iowa. On motion of Mr. Plumb the duty on brandy and on cordials, liquors, etc., was increased from $2 to $3 a gallon; on bay rum from. $1 to $2, and on cham pagne and other sparkling wines so as to make the rate on bottles not more than a quart and more than a pint $10 a doz en instead of $6; not more than a pint and more than a half pint $5 a dozen instead of $3.50; one half pint or less $2.50 instead of $1.75, and where bottles contain more than a quart $3.25 a gal lon additional. The following amendments offered by Mr. Plumb were agreed to: Increasing the rate on still wines in casks from 50 cents to 75 cents per gal lon; in cases from fl.bo to $2.50 per case, with the tax on additional quanti ties ten cents extra per pint instead of five cents. Increasing the duty on ale, porter and beer in bottles and jugs from 35 cents to 60 cents per gallon, and on that not in bottles and jugs from 20 cents to 35 cents.

The schedule of cotton manufactures was passed over, and the wool schedule taken up. Mr. Carlisle moved to strike out para graphs 357 to 369, relating to raw wool, so as to put all raw wool on the free list. A general discussion followed, the mo tion being supported by Messrs. Carlisle, Reagan, Gray and McPherson, Demo crats, and opposed by Messrs. Sherman, Aldrich and Dawes, Republicans of Alexander J- Wedderburn. Mr. Wanamaker stated that the post office at Grange Camp was discontinued because Wedderburn, though not post master there, was in reality inspector of the office. He was, it is stated, Jtlmo.st its only patron, and he mailed larure amounts of matter himself, not paying any stamp money, and, as a result, while tho receipts of the omce during tho time it was in existence amounted to $1,405, the sum of 1,215 went to ppy the commissions of the postmaster, an employe cf Wedderburn.
