HON. JOHN W. KERN DELIVERS
THE ADDRESS . TO .THE GRAD?
UATES?THE CLOSE OF THE
EIGHTH ANNUAL SESSION A
TRIBUTE TO PROF. ECKERLE
BY THE DISTINGUISHED
Tlio eighth annual sess'ou of the Na?
tional BusincsB College closed last night
at the Academy of Music before a mag?
nificent audience. The graduates occu?
pied the boxes and the main floor and
balcony were filled with people.
After an invocation by Rev. Thos. J.
Shlpman, Hon. Joi.n W. Kern, of Iu
Uianapolis, Ind., was introduced by Prof.
Eekerle and he delivered the address to
the Kraduates. Mr. Keraswas tc have ile
'ivered this address the night, before but
failed to make connections and .did not
reach Roauoke until yesterday moi ning.
His address was able, patriotic and full of
good advice to tho graduating class. All
who heard it cannot help being bene
111ted by the words of wisdom autt the
advice rendered on the occasion. Mr.
Kern's address was listened to with the
deepest interest by the vast audience
present, ind the Kraduates themselves
showed their appreciation by manifesting
the keenest possible interest.
At the. close of this address Prof.
Eekerle came forward and in a few well
chosen words introduced Col. Geo. W.
Bain, of Kentucky, as the orator of the
evening who would lecture upon the sub?
ject, "Boys and Girls, Nice and Naughty,
or the Pendulum of Life."
The Colonel began by paying a flbute
to bis audience. He said 'that he was
from the Blue Grass reinon of Kentucky
where they bail the handsomest womou
in the world and the best looking men on
earth, and he deolated that his audience
looked just l'ke a blue grass audience.
He "poke of Virginia and paid a splendid
tribute to the old Dominion as being the
home of his father. Colonel Bain's ad?
dress was unique,besides being thoroughly
practical. It was one that appealed to
tho best instincts in a man's nature, and
made all who had the good fortune to
hear him feel that they were in the pres?
ence of aud listening to one of nature's
He said that he would speak mostly
about the age which lies between that of
a Hi year old boy and his own which he
afterwards declared to be 50.
Tho speaker interwpve with the sub?
ject on which he spoke tho safe side of
life, on account of the large number of
young men in the college. He pointed
out the breakers to bo encountered along
life's channels and declared that chief
among them was idleness, and quoted
the scriptural injunction, "By the sweat
of thy face shalt thou eat bread." After
appealing to the boys not to be lazy, he
declared that the man or woman who
lives in this age of the world aud lives in
idleness should have been born in some
other age. When ox teams crept across the
plains and stage coaches went live miles
an hour idleness ?nay have been iu some
kind of harmony with the aue, but
now when a man takes breakfast one
day in New York, dinner next day in
Chicago and supper next day out on the
plains, when telephones and telegraph
send news faster than light fiies, when
cotton picked from the stalk one day and
made iuto a suit of clothes the next, the
idler is out of place. He is born too
late, and as Dr. Taluinge says. "lie will
die too late." (Laughter.) Carlyle says,
"The race of life has become intense.
The runners are treading on each others
heels. Woe be to the man who slops to
tie his shoo strings."
By an old ancient law founded on idle?
ness the greatest success of the world
have been based. On Miis Abraham Lin?
coln stood splitting rails and wedged
himself to the highest office in tho gift of
the republic. On this Shakespeare stood
weaving wool, and wove for himself a
fame immortal. On this James A. Gar
field tramped a toe path with no company
but an honest mule, but that toopath led
in to the White House in Washington.
(Applause.) Do not be lazy. I saw a
man once who really looked so lazy that
it seemed to rest me to look at him'.
At this juncture of his address Col.
Bain referred to Prof. Eekerle, President
of the National Business College, in a
manner which showed the speaker's
thorough appreciation of the man. He
requested his audience to pardon him for
making the personal reference he was
Koing to make. He said that when he
first mot the president of this college
that it was in the fir West. He was then
struggling for an education, poor, and
having been reared in a log cabin, was
working himself through college. He
said "I now find him at the head of a
college of young men and women to the
number of two hundred. With the same
"I will' indelibly stamped on his brow
that characterized his younger days and
which will yet make the membership of
his college seven hundred."
In his allusions to his youth the
speaker said:. "I would not rob you of
the ideal visions of youth but I would
have you appreciate the responsibilities
of a man, for whom the sun shines,
breezes blow, flowers bloom, the ele?
ments of whose body makes him the
epitome of the universe and the elements
of whose soul is linked w th the eternal."
In speaking of the pleasures of life he
said: "I have no desire to lake from the
young Innocentrpleasures. I would mul?
tiply these pleasures and have you dress
nicely, but remember one of the saddest
scenes on the streets of this groat city to?
night Is that young man whose clothes
ure finest in quality but whose principles
are dilapidated. There are young men
around us tonight by huuureds who
would not enter the company .of young

ladies unless dressed faultlessly and yet
they will rush into thn oresence of God
before they sleep to-night with half dozen
oaths upon their lips My advice- is pay
more attention to your manners than
your moustache; keep your conduct as
neat as your necktie; polish your lan?
guage as well as your boots. Remember
young man, moustache grows gray,
clothes get seedy, boots wear out, but
honor, virtue and integrity will be as
bright and fresh when you totter with
old age as when your mother first looked
love into your. eyes. (Applause.) Take
care of your principles and to do this
start right and keep right.
The lecture was gram1, sublime and of
more than ordinary interest. A lack of
space forb'ds further .mention whichis a
mutter cf regret.
The exercises closed by a beautiful solo
by Miss Llla Beckley which was repeat?
edly encored and she was forced to the
stage a second time.
A number of the citizens of the city,
including Mayor Andrews, and several of
the pastors were seated on the stage.
Prof. Eckerle then came to the front
and said that he would not worry the
audience by delivering an address, but
spoke of the raro treat furnished them
through Col. Bain's address and simply
stated that the college had risen wit bin
three years from 17 students the first
year to (58 the second and 103 the third,
and this year the enrollment numbered
19(5. A record to be proud of. Judging
the future by the past, *h? prophetic
words of Col. Bain that the membership
would yet reach 700 arc likely to come
true, whuh will be a source of great grat?
ification to Ronuoke and Roanokers.

FOUR YEARS HENCE?PETER J.
OTEY STRONGLY FAVORED FOR
Richmond. July 30.?(Special.) -Tl.o
political sictuition is~more muddled than
it has been since the beginning of the
campaign. The announcement of Col.
A. S. Buford to the effect that be will ac?
cept the second place on the State ticket
will cause a good deal of changing of
votes but it will not effect'.the result. The
ticKet will he Tyler, Ellyson and Scott.
Mr. Ellyson is still very reticent and tells
no one that hu is driving at. But those
nearest to him say that he is willing to
do anything that his parly requires of
him. Should the convention with any?
thing like unanimity ask him to be the
candidate for lieutenant-governor he will
accept, and should the party desire him
to remain at the hend of the machinery
in the State, there is no doubt that bo
wil' cheerfully accept the chairmanship
of the Slate committee again.
The lieutenant-governorship is called
the political gravyard'of Virginia and it
is now openly asserted that the. move?
ment, which seems so likely to succeed
in placing the cold, icy, deathlike hand
of the "second place" on Mr. Ellyson is
lurgeiy due to the smooth work of Sen
ator"Thomas S. Martin. It is said to be
the dream of his life with Senator Mar?
tin to be elected chairman of the State
committee in order that he may perpetu?
ate himself in power in Virginia politics,
I and that ho knows the moment Mr. Elly?
son leaves the position of chairman of
the party to become a candidate, or
the llouteant-governor he is a dead
duck. His power In Democracy will
then be only a pleasaut memory?a rem?
iniscence of bygone'days. It Is asserted
that Mr. Martin hopes to be his successor
and by skillful manipulation step iuto
Mnjor Tyler's shoes four years henco.
Yes, It is an open secret that the gubera
torlal bee is buzzing a merry roundela>
in the junior Sonator's headgear.
Three of the candidates lor governor
four years from now will be Thomas B.
Martin, Claude A. Swanson and J. Tay?
But Mr. Martin's plans will not suc?
ceed. He will never bo tue chairman of
the party in Virginia. He would make
an excellent manager, but the impres?
sion obtains that his regime would be a
nearer approach to machine politics than
anything that has ever been seen In the
South. I* then would look like Hying in
the face of the Fitzhugb Lee people, nnd
t'*ere are plenty of them.
It is tho opinion of the best informed
people here tin t Mr. Ellyson wlP reshrn
the chairmanship to be lieutenant-gover?
nor and that Hon. Peter J. Otoy, of
Lynchburg, will bo at the helm of the
party's committee He is known to he
one of the best organizers in tho Stato
and bis views are thoroughly in accord
with the party. Many people are skep?
tical about Senator Martin's financial
The nomination of Hon. Edmund R.
Cocke for lieutenant governor by the
Populists at Roanoice yesterday was a
subject of much talk in political circles
here to-day. Many prominent Democrats
Ba'd they would bo glad to see the Dem?
ocratic convont'on endorse him,but no
one prophesied that such a thing would
be done. There are so few Populists in
Virginia that peoplo uro sorry for them.
The Richmond delegation to Roauoko
will be announced by the city committee
io-morrow. Mr. Ellyson's and Major
Tyler's friends will recommend the gen
tlemen who will go and the committee
will endorse them.
The question of inviting theG. A. R. to
vtold Its tirand encampment at Hichmond
in 1000 will come up in PickottCamp
Confederate Veterans to night. A bitter
fight is a expected but the camp will
hardly extend a cordial invitation to
the Grand Army. The business element,
however, wants the Northerners! to come
down. This desire on their iiart is from
a business standpoint.
The question of whether tho 'convicts
will be carried from the counties to the
penitentiary by the sheriff or by the peu
guards will likely c*me up very promi?
nently In the next legislature. It is
already a burning issue in the Henrico

of such struggles. Some confusion was
caused by seemingly contradictory even's

Havana, Cubn, July 30.?Havana's
outposts have again been attacked by a
Irage body of rebels who, before the
Spanish troops could bo gathered to re?
sist, had swept through the suburbs, cai
rylng all before them. They 'used, it is
believed, rapid-firing gnus and a large
quantity of dynamite.
The attack was made iate last night.
To day there is an inclination among the
Spanish ofliclals in Havana to deny the
fact that rebels evaded the forts aud
swept into the Havana limits. But the
facts remain, and the path left by the re?
bels through tho suburbs southeast of
the city may be plainly seen.
At the first sounds of the firing *he
Spanish soldiers sprang to arms. They
proceeded hurriedly to tho southeastern
part, whence the rattle of musketry, fol?
lowed by tho boom of heavy guns or
dynamite, could be heard plainly all over
Havana. Then the sound of firing In?
creased, and finally, after a few hours,

I The attack was not unexpected. For
weeks the rebels have beeu within sight

There is a belief iu Havana that tho

noted as one of the most daring of the
rebel chiefs. Captain General Weyler
having left Havana for Matauzas, the be?
lief is expressed that tho knowledge by

from General Castillo: "Ourconlldence in
our triumph is daily greater. During
the last month, with our modest force,
we had twenty-eight severe combats with

to the trains, fought troops on the high?
ways, taken towns and our arms have
been victorious everywhere.
During the same month twenty three
persons, fully armed, who belonged to
