Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - April 28, 1920, Big Stone Gap, Virginia Pentola Enterprise John w. Edmonds editor and owner. court House a. Entered at the Post office at Accra a o. H. Va., As Keooud Clasa matter. Saturday june 3. 1911. In a Sermon at Atlantie Gity recently the Moderator of the general Assembly of the presbyterian Church said a the tendency of this age of syndicates and corporations is to bulk men and Deal with them in the mass which works the. Suppression of the individual. The Man becomes a part of the machine. He is gripped by the system which takes his soul. The average Man is simply one of the mass. Massing belittles a Man and makes life this is a sufficient statement of an unfortunate fact. A but it is the inevitable result of the development of modern Industrial conditions in America the land of Liberty where every Man Theodati Cally conditions being equal has the pm same Chance As his fellow. The result is lamentable. It makes Money Kings and subjects individual Industry and ability to immense disadvantages. One effect is to pit the aggregation of capital against the aggregation of labor a Trust against a Trust resulting in class hatred and to largely eliminate individualism. The remedy is not Plain. Labor is enjoined for interfering with the alleged rights of capital and capital in the mass is ordered dissolved for interfering with the rights of the mass of the Public. It places a tremendous responsibility upon the various branches of the government it is said the age and. The occasion produce the Man. The time is Ripe for one who will solve this the greatest of problems in american civilization. Political speaking Hon. Carter Glass at Parksley saturday june 3d, at 2 p. M., and at Accomac court House monday june 5th, court Day. Hon. Carter Glass Candi Date for United states Senate will be present at both places on the Day named above and address the voters on the leading issues in Virginia and everyone who wants to vote right should be out to hear him. He is an Elo quent and forcible speaker with the courage of his convictions and will entertain All who hear him As few men in Public life in Virginia can do to Day. Come out to hear him and while he presents Bis claims for your support judge for yourself whether or not he is entitled to it. Everyone should hear him who wants to cast a vote for the Best interests of Virginia at the primary to be held on the 7th Day of september next. Many of the candidates for the local offices will also be present and present their claims for your support both at Parksley and Accomac 0 h. Or. Glass will speak at Parksley at �?�2 of saturday and everyone on Eastern Shore can reach that place who wishes to hear him by coming on mid Day trains and returning at night. A million dollars a Day for Good roads is the record that will be established the United states soon according to Logan Waller Page director of the Federal office of Public roads. In 1904, expend Tures for the construction and main Tai Nance of roads and Bridges totalled Only $80,000,000 while this year about $140,000,000 will be spent. A every state in the Union a says or. Page a seems at last to be thoroughly aroused to the benefits derived from investments in improved highways. Of the $5,000,000 Bond Issue recently authorized in Maryland Over $1,500,000 will be available this year in North Carolina Over $2,000,000 is available from county Bond issues and the legislature has authorized the construction of 425 Miles of Road from the coast to the Tennessee line. Various counties in Tennessee will spend $1.500,000 Texas counties will spend $1,500,000, and $2,500,000 will be available from Virginia counties Bond. Accomac it is to be regretted is not in the list of progressive counties which have authorized a Bond Issue for the improvements of her roads. Tho Success of the postal savings Bank system As tried out to Date will result in the establishment of one Hundred new postal Banks each week for some time to come. If the. Postmaster general would now turn his activities towards the establishment of a parcels Post he would undoubtedly find it would meet with an even larger measure of Success vastly increasing the revenues of the department and at the same time relieving the people of the enormous exaction of the express monopoly. New York City has one Hundred thousand men unemployed a total equal to the standing army of the United states. Some of these Are professional beggars an 1 vagrants by Choice but the vast majority Are men willing to work if they in find employment the same proportion of Idle men can undoubtedly be found in All the larger Urban centres. This furnishes an eloquent commentary on these piping times of Republican Prosperity. The question now remains to be determined what is a near Trust. One that practically monopolizes Trade in any Branch of business has been declared to be illegal. How far from the line combinations of capital can go without being ordered to dissolve and then reorganize is a problem that will keep Trust attorneys Busy. A before the month of june gets much older congressman Jones and congressman Glass the anti machine candidates for the u. S. Senate will make on an average of three speeches per week a declared general manager c. B. Garnett of Virginia democratic league the ant machine organization of the state which is conducting the Campaign against senators Thomas s. Martin and c. A. Swanson. Or. Garnett declared sentiment for Jones and Glass is growing throughout the state. He receives letters daily from places where the two men have spoken and these indicate that there is a fast growing upheaval against a a machine politics. By a unanimous vote the state Board of education at Richmond saturday decided to discontinue the state Board of examiners after sept 1 of this year. It was Felt that the work of examining teachers and of inspecting schools can be More effectively and with half the Cost by administration from the office of the department of Public instruction under the new plans worked out by the department s officials.
