MOXTGOMEKY COUSTY, YA.,
September 27, 1889. )
In the summit of the AlIesheuT Mount
ains in Virginia, 500 miles from Pittsburg,
with the sun shining brisrhtly, a stift breeze
blowins, and the thermometer ranging from
36 to 58, I find myself beside a comfort
ing wood fire reading TnE DISPATCH,
which has been a welcome visitor te the
household of P. "W. Eeid, a former Pitts
burger, since 1850. A short while ago I
sat on the mountain divide; a stone's throw
on my right is a spring the waters of which
flow into the Kanawha, thence to the Ohio
and Mississippi; a like distance on
rur left is a brook which empties into the
Roanoke, and thence into the Atlantic
Ocean. From a good point of observation
I can see with the eye the celebrated peaks
of Otter 60 mile distant Five miles south of
me is a fine white sulphurjspring; west,a yel
low sulphur spring, while the most recently
discovered spring on New river, called the
Allegheny, is said to be strongly impreg
nated with arsenic I expect to visit all of
these resorts before returning.
Christiansburg is the eounty seat of Mont
gomery, and contains about 500 inhabitants.
It has a sawmill, bank, hotels, churches
tobacco tactory, tanneries, and roller flour
mill, beside some of the best, if not the
finest, producing farms in Virginia.
THE FOREGONE CONCLUSION.
Northern capital and energy has ma
teriallv assisted in the development of the
little place. Here reside A. D. Simpson,
formerly of Mahoning, Pa., and an almost
barren mountain when he came here is now
a finely cultivated farm.
Ten years ag came P. V. Keid, of Home
stead, whose farm the first year did not av
erage five bushels of wheat to the acre.
Last year the yield was 39 bushels to the
acre, and tbe local paptr pronounced it the
best farm in the county. It is to-day worth
seven times what was paid for it ten years
Captain C. S. SchaefTer, of Philadelphia,
is perhaps the best known Northern man for
300 miles around. He came here on de
tached duty from the Army of the Potomac,
one year after the close of the war, in the
interest of the Freedmen's Board, and lo
cated near the railroad station, on a site oc
cupied by Generals Averill and Crook
during some of their raids here. He was
charmed with the spot and indeed with the
whole country, and, exeept to visit Phila
delphia every three years, for a short stay,
has been steadily at work here. He took a
lively interest in the elevation of the colored
race, and, as early as 1867, by the aid of the
Friends Freedmen's Association, of Phila
delphia, and his own money, established the
firit free school for the emancipated people.
At first the whites did not take well to
Captain SchaefTer and his ways, but as the
threatening letters and "skulls and cross
bones" continued to multiply, this philo
sophic Northerner visited the county
authorities and notified them that, if his
barns and house were destroyed, he would
hold the county responsible.
HE GATE THEM THE SLIP.
Once some Salem students undertook to
mob the tall, magnificent, but dauntless
Northern soldier at "Big Lick," now
Roarnke City: but he quietly gave them
the slip through tbe stovepipe hole of a
cabin. On another occasion the Captain
was riding with a colored man. and insisted
on his keeping abreast of him instead of be
hind him, as the whites demanded, and a
mob threatened him. But the Captain
calmly and coolly carried his point, and
to-day he is perhaps the most popular
white' man in the county. Finding that
his work could be enlarged, he studied for
the ministry and was licensed to Dreach,
and to-day thei e stands above the station a
beautiful brick church, erected bv Captain
SchaefTer and his friends of Philadelphia,
save perhaps $4,000 contributed by the
whites and blacks of Christiansburg. The
total cost of the edifice was over $11,000.
It is called the Memorial Baptist Church,
and is the result of the efforts of the Tenth
Baptist congregation of Philadelphia,
which, until recently, assisted in its main
tenance, with Captain SchaefTer and his
The large new brick school house, erected
about three years ago, two years after the
church was completed, cost about $9,000,
and is owned by the Philadelphia Quakers
alluded to. There are 250 scholars enrolled,
of all ages, and each vear graduates in Eng
lish are recorded. Until two vears ago four
white teachers were employed. The first
year the colored teachers were in charge the
school was not up to the mark, but last year
the colored teachers Droved their efficiency,
and have been engaged for another year,
commencing with October 1.
HIS WIDE JURISDICTION.
Captain SchaefTer is the Principal of the
school, and in fact Superintendent school,
church, farm, etc, having jurisdiction over
119 churches, within a radius of 300 miles.
The congregation at Christiansburg num
bers 500, and the trustees are reqnired to
pay Mr. SchaefTer $300 per annum. This
cum he has regularly turned over to the
building fund, supporting himself on what
Philadelphians have supplied him and out
of his abundant resources. Last year the
congregation decided to give their benefac
tor $500, and with this sum he intends fres
coing the walls ot the edifice. In all of the
churches over which he has jurisdiction the
poor blacks have from time to time paid
him for his services, but invariably the
tnonev, apd in addition his own funds,
have been drawn on to assist in the erection
of the crossroads "xneetin house." That
the blacks at Christiansburg prefer Captain
SchaefTer as a preacher is attested by the
fact that, when the Rev. Mr. Taylor col
ored, died, the Captain was unanimously
called to tbe pastorate, and has since been
called annually for 23 years.
The State and county apprjpriates $375
annually to tbe school, the total expenses of
which are out t-yuu. xae scnooi is open
now seven months in the year, though the
term heretofore has been nine and ten
months. Captain Scliaefler's children at
tend school in Philadelphia, but his good
wite lives here, and is a valuable assistant
in his grand work. His home is a summer
resort for Philadelphia friends, and no one
in Virginia entertains more hospitably or
The Captain is tall and erect, with white
hair and chin beard, and modestly savs he
will continne in his present work as long as
the colored people want his services. He
donated to the church trustees nine acres of
'ground for a cemetery, conditioned that
colored people generally should be interred
A PLACE OF PEEASUEE.
Christiansburg, on account of its eleva
tion, 2,100 feet above sea level, is fast be:
coming a summer pleasure resort There is
always a cool breeze blowing, and, notwith
standing the hot san, a drive or stroll is
highly enjoyed. The roads are hard and
rockv and tbe pleasure seekers here think
nothing of a 30-mile drive through the
mountains in a half day. This season the
small hotels in Christiansburg and at the
the station, which is about a mile and a half
from Christiansburg, were crowded by visi
tors from the North and West, as well as
Bomejamilies from the South.

Take the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad to
Shenandoah Jnnction, and you will arrive
in time in the morning to see the most
beautiful and dazzling sunrise. Then along
the Shenandoah Valley, historic and pictur
esque, you have a most enjoyable daylight
ride. Yon pass the location of the now
famous Luray caverns, which thousands of
tourists annually visit Some miles further
down the valley you reach Weir's cave and
grottos ot more recent discovery. A fine
view ot the historic "Lookout Mountain,"
and then the most direct route to the won
derfnl "natural bridge." 2 miles from the
station of that name. Before sunset you are
at Roanoke, the terminus ot the Shenan
doah Valley Railroad' and a more delight
ful ride could not be provided. The valley,
its entire length, is being developed rapid
ly. An instance of this may be cited in
reference to Roanoke, formerly "Big Lick."
A BABE TRANSFORMATION.
Six years ago the writer passed through
Roanoke, over the Shenandoah Valley Rail
road. It then had a few houses; a new rail
road roundhouse bad just been finished; a
new hotel was in course of erection on
huge mound of red clav, and 600 people re
sided at the point To-day that hotel is
surrounded by a lawn of velvet green; the
roundhouses are seveial in number; there
are two furnaces in. operation; two large
rolling mills at work, and a locomotive
works, the largest in the South, nearly com
nlpted. There are also a number .of
smaller industrial establishments in full
tide of success, and the population numbers
15,000, or an increase of 14,400 in six yearsl
One of the principal causes for this pros
perity in Roanoke is the opening of the
Pocahontas coal field on New river, a few
miles distant This coal is being taken out
in great quantities thousands of tons daily
and is being hauled East and West, avast
amount of it going to Norfolk, over the
Norfolk ana Western Railway, tor export
It is alo magnificent coal for coking pur
pose and very many ovens are burning, and
train alter train load is sent East and West
from this new field, the Norfolk and West
ern getting a deal of the traffic. Of course
this prosperity at Roanoke is felt in this
locality, which is only 33 miles distant, and
already it is proving a good market for
wheat "and other cereals.
STILL ItORE PROSPERITY.
But another boom is in store forEoanoke.
The Louisville and Nashville Kail road
Company has just awarded a contract for
the building of 47 miles of railroad from
Cumberland Gap to Princess Flat, and
when finished it will afiord a through line
from Nashville to Norfolk, passing through
a rich agricultural and mineral country, the
development of which will bring prosperity
to all the farmers hereabouts, as new
markets will be opened up both East and
Roanoke has two local daily papers
which are apparently thrifty, and one or
two weekly papers. Real estate within a
year had more than quadrupled itself. A
single instance will suffice. Some lots
which coot $1,300 sold for $3,300, and again
for $10,000 per lot within a year. At pres
ent there is a lull in the market, but nearly
all the available property in the city has
been taken up for business purposes, and
speculators are beginning to buy outside the
I have made some inquireis about the can
dacy of General Mahone. The colored men
about Christiansburg, to use the language
of one of them, "are punctual at the polling
places," and they are generally in favor of
the Republican candidate. General Ma
hone, as nearly as I can estimate, will run
well in Montgomery county.

YUltoin and a Telephone Call
Do the Boslncm.
Chicago, September 29. Eggleston,Mal
lette & Brownell, contractors and manufact
urers of crushed stone, occupy a handsome
office in tbe Royal Insurance building.
Yesterday was pay day for their big force of
men. Mr. Mallette drew a check for the en
tire amount and sent a clerk to the bank to
get it cashed. He returned with 2,870 in
currency, and placed the amount on his
desk. The only other persons in the office
at the time were Mr. Eggleston and Mr.
Mallette. Both were busy writing letters.
Just as the clerk began counting the money
a well-dressed, good looking young man
came into the office and engaged in conver
sation with Mr. Eggleston, A minute later
another young man came in through a dif
ferent entrance and spoke to Mr. Mallette.
At that instant the telephone bell rang.
The clerk glancing up and seeing both
members of the firm talking to strangers,
left his desk to answer the telephone, which
is hung in an adjoining closet. The first
stranger concluded his conversation with
Mr. Eggleston, ana passing by the clerk's
desk, went ont through the entrance the
other man came in at. Mr. Eggleston went
on with his letter writing. Tnen Mr. Mal
lette's caller withdrew. Both members of
the firm were scratching away with their
pens, when the clerk came out'of the tele
phone closet and told Mr. Mallette that
MarshallField & Co. had a package for
him at their retail store on which they had
advanced charges, and had called ud to
know where the package was to be deli vered.
Mr. Mallette said he did not understand
what they meant, and went to the telephone.
There was no one at the end of the wire
and the connection had been broken. The
clerk returned to his desk. The money
was gone. His face grew pale, his knee's
shook, and he could hardly control his
voice long enough to ask Mr. Eggleston if
he had taken the money. That gentleman
replied that he had not Mr. Mallette
stepped from the telephone closet and also
denied having taken the money. Then the
clerk began to laugh. He thought his em
ployers were playing a joke on him, be
cause of his carelessness in leaving so large
a sum ot money exposed. But the serious-

nes3of the situation struck all three when
they realized that they were victims of one
of the most remarkable pieces ot sneak
thieving on record.
"What did your man want?" asked Mr.
Mallette, turning to his partner.
"He asked about the standing of some
firm that I never heard of. And yours?"
"He asked if we were figuring on a pav
ing contract on the Westside."
'"The man who rang the telephone was

exclamation of all.
