WINSTON WATER WORKS QHESTION Arrangements to le Made for Calling an Election to Iecide Whether or Not the City Shall Purchase the "Water Work Committees Ap pointed Other Business. The Winston Beard of Aldermen met in regular session on tte 20th. All the members were present. C. B. Watson appeared before the Board in behalf of Spaugh Bros., who complain of Miller Bros, encroaching upon a street that was opened for the general public. The matter was re ferred to the street committee-with instructions that said committee look into the complaint at once. Heading the minutes of several former meetings was dispened with. It was moved and carried that the Board hereafter meet at 8 o'clock in stead of 7:30. Col. Alspaugh said that as was well known the Legislature had passed a law giving the city power to purchase the Winston Water Works. Mr. G. W. Ilinshaw, of the Water Works Company, being present, arose and stated that the directors of his company had met and drawn plans for the new water mains to be laid over the unprotected portions of the city. Mr. Ilinshaw exhibited a map which the company had had drawn for the purpose of showing the loca tion of the old mains as well as the proposed new ones. He also gave some figures regarding the cost of the improvemnts to be made to the water works. He said the town would have six or eight thousand dollars left af ter paying for the works and improve ments. The new water mains to be built, according to the map, will be 91 miles in length. Col. Alspaugh stated that when the proposed new improvements were made to the water works system every house in the town would be protected. "The whole scheme," said the Colo nel, "is this: It will give Winston an adequate supply of water with no cost to the town. It will be self-sustaining too. I regard the question of the town purchasing the water works the grandest project in Xorth Caroli na. It will be like this municipal building an honor to the city as well as a grand success. "My motion is that we adopt these plans with the understanding that any necessary changes may be made. This law, we all krow, calls for a new registration. Everybody must regis ter in order to vote on the question." Col. Alspaugh's motion was adopted. Also was another made by him to the effect that the city attorneys, with a committtee of two from the Board of Aldermen, be appointed to arrange all the preliminaries for said election. The Mayor appointed Col. Alspaugh and T. W. Grimes to represent the Board. On motion of Alderman Pierce May or Kerner appointed a committee con sisting of Messrs. King, Webb and Wilson to make a general investiga tion of the property owned by the Wa ter Works Company and make an ex hibit of same to the citizens of Win ston in order that everyone may see and understand hat the city is buy ing. The Board granted Duke : Hay per mission to remove one or two wooden buildings near the corner of Fourth and Depot streets. L. II. West applied to the Board for permission to erect a wall tent in the rear of the old Hay house; also to build a partition i fence. The matter was referred to the Are committee. License was granted Winston Ruck er to run two pool tables on Old Town street. Col. Alspaugh reported that Mr. E. R. Amis had affected a sale of the large lot on Liberty street purchased a few years ago by the town for a grad ed school building. The purchasers were Messrs. Bennet & co., and R. H. Ogburn at a price oft $3,000. The Board confirmed the sale. It was moved and carried that a house be built at once for the colored hook and ladder 'company on the col ored graded school lot. It was decided that the keys for the new Are alarm boxes be put in the hands of J. W. Hanes, chief of the Are department. The question of the town purchas ing a pair of horses for the new Are engine which is expected to arrive shortly, was left in the hands of the Are committee. i The Board passed an order that the poles on which the Are boxes were lo cated be painted red. It was stated that the paint was already on band and it was understood that some of 1 . 4 . l. . . , 1 ,3 . . 1. . .. . , ..1- The Board adjourned to meet in special session next Friday night in order to give Secretary Wilson an op portunity to read the minutes of sev eral meetings. MR. MOODY'S GENEROSITY. He Gives $ tOO to tbe Y. M. C. A. at Charlotte. After the Moody meetings closed in Charlotte, says the Observer, the finance committee, consisting of Messrs. G. B. Hanna, S. P. Alender, J. E. Oates and John R. Pharr, called at Mr. Moody's room after the service in the auditorium, and presented him with a purse of $700, $200 of which was for Miss Tyson. The amount for Mr. Moody was in two checks, one for $400, the other for $100. When Mr. nanna handed them ts Mr. Moody, he glanced at them, and. then taking his pen, wrote his name across the back of one of the checks, and handed it back to Mr. Hanna, saying, "There's mv subscription to your Young Men's Christian Association." Mr. Hanna and all began expressing their thanks when suddenly Mr. Hanna gave a start of surprise, and said: '"Mr, Moody, you've made a mistake; you endorsed tbe wrong check; this is the $400 check." "No, no, I didn't make a mistake," said he, in his quick off hand, but kindly way; "this is enough to pay my expenses," pointing to tbe $100 check. More "Book Farmers" Needed. The most successful farmer in North Carolina is said to be Mr. T. J. Kintr, a bachelor of thirty, residing at Lou isburg. He is called a book farmer, because he uses his brains and scien tific knowledge 'Id his . business. In 1890 he produced 1,330 pounds of lint, three bales on one acre, the largest yield ever known iu the State. At one . of the Piedmont expositions his exhib it alone covered 1,600 square feet of space and included 60 varieties of corn, 34 of cotton, 43 species of hay " and grasses, 10 of tobacco, 96 speci mens of garden crops. 22 kinds of wine, 150 jars of preserves, jellies, etc., with many varieties of wheat, oats, peas and potatoes. Book-keepers and others of sedentary habits cure constipation with Sim " LiverKegulator. . . THE AIR-SHIP CAUSED IT. Damaged Hen rruit Was FIjinK in the Air. Prof. David, the "lightning calcu lator man," was in bad luck Monday night. Saturday and Monday circulars were scattered all over both towns announcing that Maj. Homer Pinck ney, of Alabama, inventor of the Eth eric Vibratory Air-Ship, would super intend an exhibition of his revolution in navigating the air. The exhibition was to take place in the court-bouse square at 7:30 p. m., the weather per mitting. The latter being favorable, a large crowd gathered in and around the square to see the program. Sev eral ladies turned out. Time passed on, but the air-ship failed to show up. Prof. David had the crowd and he talked for his "lightning calculator" books with great earnestness. When questioned about the air-ship exhibition the Professor claimed to know nothing' about the air-ship or the circulars, further than seeing some of the latter on the streets. A crowd of boys, it seems, did not believe the statement and they began to plan how to get even with the Professor fnr the trick he had played on the crowd. Soon there was a hub-bub in the square; and damaged hen fruit was the cause of it. Eggs were flying thick and fast and it is needless to say that the crowd was rapidly diminished in size. The Professor also soon caught on to the situation and after a few brief statements he "shut up shop" for the night. He went across the street and took refuge in one of the stores in the Hay building. The crowd followed him ana threw several eggs against the store windows. The last action is severely criticized by many. Afrcr the Professor had closed his business, it would have been more commend able for the boys to have given him a "rest." One or two citizens took sides with the Professor, but is is understood t.- day that they are now sorry lor it. WINSTON VS DANVILLE. A Comparison of the Shipments of Manufactured Tobacco.

Kimmel, (nee Robertson) wife of George W. Kimmel, aged 61 years, 6 months and 21 days. Isine weeks ago she removed to Saiem with her ailing husband, that he could be nearer his physician and she could live among her children and enjoy their lives more. When sickness seized her bodv so suddenly, it was hoped that it would not be serious. Unly six days of suf fering and she was called home, fully prepared. She died as she had lived a child of Christ. She leaves a sor rowing husband, six devoted children, and many relatives and friends to mourn her death. But no reference to our departed one would be complete without allusion to her devotion to her husband and children, never tiring to labor for and cheer her husband now left desolate; here where the kind admonitions, advice and prayers in faith, were daily poured lortn lor lier children, a welcome smile greeted every visitor; and how her neighbors will miss her, to whom she ever had an open heart and Hand. May the Lord comfort tne acinng hearts and lead the dear children to Christ, and when they call "mother," may the echo be, "I cannot come to you, but you can come to me. The funeral services were conducted by llev. James Hall before a large congregation of sorrowing relatives, after which she was laid to rest by loving hands in Pleasant Fork church yard. .

Crossroads Cnciicn, March 17 A correspodent enjoys writing for a paper wnen ne nas news, out wnen gardening, farm-work or the state of the weather are the chief" topics it makes prosy reading. We have, nowever, plenty to talk about. No Democrat these days caa fail to take an interest in the trans actions at Washington. The change in the management of our great Ship of State is the one topic of conversa tion, and every announcement sent out is thoroughly discussed. The unlooked-for in this respect sometimes causes astonishment, but in the-end receives approbation, it therefore becomes daily more apparent, that there Is but one Grover Cleveland. His taking of the reins and driving straight for the middle of the road, avoiding all obstacles on either sidel demonstrates plainly ins indomitable will and his confidence in his policy. It seems that Mr. Cleveland's sagacity enables him to decide in advance the wisdom of a policy before he an nounces it. He keeps his own counsel and therefore has on hand at all times a store of suprises. We have learned to look for the unexpected, and the office hunter never knows whether he will get a job until he receives his commission. ' Walkertwn Waffle. Correspondence of The Sentinel.

ANOTHER. VOICE Raised in Behalf of Winston Collector's Ollice. for the To tbe Editor of The Sentinel-1 The stand you have taken and the action of your citizens in the matterof the removal of the collector's office of the Internal Revenue back to Winston-Salem is a move in the right di rection, and I voice the sentiments of the manufacturers and business men -,f this town in sajing that you are only asking of the department what is justly due Winston-Salem and Forsyth county; for the reasou, if there were no others, that Winston Salem is by far the largest manufac turing city in the District. This, to gether with the accessibility of the Twin-City by rail from every direction should be sunicient reason for the lo cation of the central office there. The selection of Col. Thos. II. Sutton for collector is a good one. Col. Sutton, if appointed, will All the position witli credit to himself and with honor to the Democratic party. Let the matter be pushed and there can be no doubt, but success will follow. Yours, etc., J. M. Guyer. Kernersville, March 21, '93. THE CROP OUTLOOK.

There is said to be an unprecedented crush of applicants for the various consular ships, and particularly those which are reported to be desirable from a financial point of view. The best of these are Great Uritain, where under the operation of a peculiar law gov erning i the administration of oaths, the consuls are enabled to retain the greatest part of the fees received on that account. That is what makes London, Liverpool, Manchester, Brad ford, -Birmingham, Belfast, Glasgow and several others such highly attract ive posts. On the continent and indeed in all other countries, these fees are part of the receipts of the office, and almost wholly go to the government. Paris, for this reason, pays no less than $5,000 or $12,000 per year, and it is the best consulate on the continent, while London is credited with being worth four or five times as much.

Watkins Watkins House, Uptonville, ,Ky. . . AD VALOREM DUTIES. Mr. Shearman Says They Favor h Poor Man. From th.8 Baltimore Sun. In his article on tariff reform Mr. Shearman shows why ad valorem du ties are to be preferred to specific du ties on imports, as being more just in their operation. The ad valorem duty is a per centage duty a duty of so much upon the dollar of value of the imported article, whereas a specific duty is a duty of a certain number of cents per yard or per pound. A duty of 25 per cent ad valorem on cloth worth so much a yard would work thus: On cloth worth $1 a yard the du ty would be 25 cents a yard. If the cloth fell in price to 50 cents a yard the consumer would get the full bene At of the fall, as the duty would then be but 12i cents a yard. If, on the other hand, the" price of the cloth went up to $2 a yard, the ad valorem tax would amount to 50 cents. In a word, the amount of the ad valorem tax va ries with the value of the imported article. The specific tax, on the other hand, does not vary. A specific tax of 23 cents a yard on cloth worth $1 a yard remains 25 cents a yard whether the price falls to 10 cents a yard or mounts up to $2 a yard. The tariff lords see their advantage in the spe ciAc tax. Nowadays, owing to im provements and inventions of all sorts the price of articles manufactured abroad is continually falling. A pocket knife or a pair of stockings selling at 50 cents today in Liverpool will per haps Ave years hence be selling at 40 cents, and ten years hence at 35 cents or less. A specific tax of 20 cents per knife, if fair at today's price of the article, becomes unfair and oppressive when the price has fallen to & cents. The "protection' in the specific tax increases, it will bejseen, as the price falls abroad until it" becomes perhaps prohibitory. Various objections are urged by protectionists against ad va lorem taxes, but they amount, as Mr. Shearman shows, to nothing if the motive of the lawmaker is to protect the millions of the people instead of the favored few. MAJOR RAG LAND DEAD. One of Halifax's Most Prominent Citi zens Passes Away. South Boston, Va., March 21. Major R. L. Ragland died at his home near Ilyco, in Halifax county, Sunday morning at 7 o'clock. He had been in feeble health for some time, and his death- was not unexpected to his friends and family.
