FOB FRKB COINAGE.
Thb following counties of this State
have instructed their delegates to the
Staunton convention to advocate the
free coinage of silver, and nearly all
have been instructed to vote for the unit
rule in the Democratlo State conven?
Middlesex, Essex, Westmoreland,
Louden, Montgomery, Bedford, Halifax,'
Charlotte, Fluvanna, Pulaskl, Rich?
mond, Gloucester, Spottsylvanla, Frank?
The monarchists aro said to be ac?
tively at werk In Brazil for the restora?
tion of the empire. Should they succeed
in their Intrigues and overthrow the re?
public the United States will have an?
other grave problem to solve.
The inaugural ceremonies of the
Tennessee centenlal will take place at
Nashville on the first of June next,
under the auBplces of the Tennessee
Centennial Exposition, which opens
May 1, 1S97, and continues six months.
The Times' editorial staff returns thanks
to the president, J. W. Thomas, and
Director General E. C. Lewis for an in?
vitation to attend tho inaugural cere?
Ovsb two million dollars will be
shipped from this country to Germany
to-day or to-morrow, to be tran-shlpped
to Russia, and the Indications are that
from two to three million dollars more
will be drawn from the United States
Treasury for the same purpose this
week. Some time ago It was reported
that Russia had offered to loan the
United States government several hund?
red millions In gold, and If the above
mentioned plan Is kept up It may bo
come necessary to borrow a large sum
from the czar. Legal tenders have
been deposited at the sub-treasury for
the first withdrawal, and the same
ooursewill no doubt be pursued In re?
gard to successive shipments. Truly
the financial workings of the United
States government are wonderful.
illinois AND FBEK SILVEB.
As Illinois was the pivotal State In
the matter of the Republican nomina?
tion for President, and by the notion of
the State convention of that party a
few days ago virtually decided that
McKinley would be the nominee; so it
now begins to appear that this same
State will be the battleground of the
gold and silver forces of the country for
control of the Democratic party at the
national convention, with the result of
victory for the latter.
Of the seventeen counties in that
State which have already elected dele?
gates to the Democratic State conven?
tion, sixteen have Instructed their dele?
gates to declare for free silver, and the
-seventeenth, while not binding Us dele?
gates to any line of financial policy,
?elected as such men who were advo?
cates of free coinage. Chicago appears
to be the pivotal point In the struggle
for State supremacy, and both the sil?
ver and gold men are making the most
determined efforts to control the dele?
gation, with the chances very good tor
This would put Illinois In the column
of sliver States, and the friends of the
white metal there feel sure that they
will oommand the situation. Thus the
strength of the silver sentiment ii
growing all the time, even in the States
of the middle West, which have hereto?
fore been counted as In sysmpathy with
Eastern monometallsts, until now the
question of controling the national
Democratlo convention is no longer in
doubt, the only point of Inquiry being
the extent of the majority for the free
coinage of silver in that convention.
A CLOTH PAOTOBV PBOP08ITI0N.
Dr. Paul Scheror, Immigration agent
of the Norfolk and Western Railroad
Company, writes to The Times that a
Western firm desires to start a cloth
factory In a good town. The proposed
factory will give employment to 500
hands, and the promoters proposo to
purchase 300 acres of land near the city
selected, provided the people thereof
agree to purchase 200 lots at ?250 each
in the addition where the factory is to
be located. The object of the sale cf
lota is understood to be to aid In the
purchase of the land and the erection
of the factory buildings.
Dr. Soberer will be very glad to
submit offers to the firm from the
business men of this city, and as the
establishment of such a factory here
would be a very important addition to
the industries of Roanoke, it Is hoped
the matter will be looked into
thoroughly by our citizens, with a view
of effecting an agreement with the
parties In question, provided their plans
These "hard luck" stories "don't go"
any more. Good ball-playing will kill
off the hardest luck io Amerioa. When
necessary plays were left to obanoe
these "hard luck" walls were a very
planalble way of accounting for negli?
gent or weak effort; bat now that base?
ball is "reduced to a science" that old
familiar and bendy "bard lnok" la no
longer a legitimate element, and to try
to Impose It upon an intelligent public
makes people weary.
Boanoke bas worked off four or five
of the ancient "bard luck" defeats In
succession, and it is now time to Rive us
something new and strange. Systematic
"hard luck" occupying % diamond pro?
duces "hard luck" at tbe gate, and a
virulent attack of "bard luck" at the
gate has caused many a good man to re?
tire from business.
THE TABLES TUBNED.
The defaulting county treasurer of
Iowa, Chester W. Boe, who escaped ex?
tradition because he had purchased aome
real estate in Mexico, and thus, under
tbe law of that country, bad become a
citiz n, did not come off as well in tbe
end as he supposed he wonld. Mexloo
was compelled to refuse to give him up;
but that government proved itself equal
to the occasion by arresting Boe on the
oharge of bringing stolen goods Into the
country, for whloh he was fined 83,000,
about all the money he had left, and
sentenced to twelve years' imprison?
He no doubt wlshea now that he had
remained in Iowa. This will probably
have the effect of deterring other de?
faulters from seeking rofuge in Mexico
and thus prevent that country from be?
coming a place of refuge for American
malefactors, until the Mexican law con?
cerning property rights and citizenship
can be changed to meet the require?
ments in such cases as that of Boe.
Tucy Are All For McKinley and Favor
Sacramento, Cal., May 5.?The
California State Republican convention
was called to order to-day. W. B.
Artnur, of Pasadena, was elected chair?
When escorted to the platform Mr.
Arthur said that it was evident that the
convention bad determined to send to
St. Louis delegates absolutely pledged
to McKinley. This statement waa
greeted wltb prolonged cheera.
So far there has not been much talk of
a platform, but It is believed that silver
will receive some endorsement.
After the adjournment of the conven- '
tion Congressional conventions were
held in the First, Second, Third and
Fifth districts to eleot delegates to St.
The delegates chosen in all of these
districts were Instructed for McKinley.
The resolutions adopted in the Fifth
district also declare for freo Bllver at
16 to 1.

Professor Gentry and his highly
eduoated doga and ponlea seem to have
oaptured the town. Their large tent
waa paoked laat night from one end to
the other by a very ariatooratio and ap?
preciative audlenoe. The performanoe
given by these wonderful animals ia
something marveloua and amualng.
There la no doubt but that Professor
Gentry haa the finest aggregation of
thla kind traveling. Thla ia hla second
visit to Roanoke, and during the time
they have been away he has enlarged

many new featurea.
When you atop to think after seeing
one of theae performances it amazea
you to think how much control a man
can get over so-called dumb brutes by
peraeverenoe and kindness. Kindness

By its power to respond to all these

Thousands write that they have been

It is the great blood purifier, and con?

"I feel that I should be wanting in

from running ulcers, caused by poorness of

to try Hood's Sarsaparilla. She said it

my wife. So wo tried it, and to say that
its effect is wonderful, is only using a

First, get a wife, second, be natiout.
You may have great trials and perplexi?
ties in your business, but do not, there?
fore, oarry to your home a cloudy or
contracted brow. Your wife may have
triala, whiob, though of less magnitude,
may be hard for her to bear. A kind
word, a tender look, will do wonders in
chasing from her brow all clouds of
gloom. To thia we would add alwaya
keep a bottle of Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy in the house. It is the best
and is Bure to be needed sooner or later.
Your wife will then know that you
really care for her and wish to protect
her health. For Bale by The Chas. Lyle
