A very few people seem to be surprised to learn that president Taft was the guest of or. Bryan at Lincoln the other Day that they chatted amiably together for fully two hours and that no Black eyes or loosened Teeth resulted from the encounter. It is a Happy sign of the times that two men so diametrically opposed in their views As or. Taft and or. Bryan can meet on Friendly terms and with no necessity for summoning the police. Forty or fifty years ago when politics were More heated and politicians More vituperative such an occurrence would have excited astonishment perhaps suspicion and resentment but the time has gone by when sensible men expect to gain any advantage by vituperative bitterness and personal enmity. The people at Large will be glad that Taft and Bryan met Shook hands talked and enjoyed their visit neither have lost anything by the encounter and both May have gained much and the incident closed each is free to pursue his course and voice his opinion unaltered by the fact that they met on common ground As gentlemen and sensible citizens of the greatest nation on Earth. There was a meeting of the members of the a Comyok bar and the officers of the or out court of Accomac county in the court House on the afternoon of wednesday october 4th., 1911, the object of the meeting being to prepare suitable resolutions upon the death of the late judge John w. G. Blackstone. Judge James h. Fletcher was elected chairman of the meeting and j. Brooks Mapp Secretary. Benjamin t. Gunter Stewart k. Powell and 8. James Turlington were appointed by the chairman to prepare appropriate resolutions. This committee offered the following sketch of judge Blok Itoney a life and resolutions of respect upon his death the Community of Accomac was startled at the death of John w. G. Blackstone sunday evening. September 24th., 1911. Only a few hours before he had been seen on the streets if the Village and it was not known that he was not in usual health when found with life extinct. Or. Blackstone was born near Accomac court House on the 3d Day of october 1858, and spent his entire life in this Community. His Early education was received at a private school conducted at mount on Stib at that time the Home of his father John j. Blackstone and the neighbourhood private a chop. When quite Young he attended Roanoke College and gradual tid from this school in two years with the degree of b. A. And received a medal in mathematics. From Roanoke College he went to the University of Virginia and pursued his academic studies for several years i Ater entering the Law school at that institution taught at that time by that famous Law teacher John b.

Keller a. Italy a declaration of War on Turkey has caused the Quot sick Man of Europe Quot to sit up and take notice but is not Likely to hasten his recovery. It is hardly probable that Italy would have taken such a step Las invading Tripoli and establishing an armed patrol of the Mediterranean unless she had received assurances that she will not be in referred with by the Powers of Europe. Still there is the Chance that unseen complications May precipitate an Embr oiling of other and More Power i 1 nations. The peace of Europe has Long been suspended by a slender thread and May fall like Damocles sword at any moment. Italy wants Tripoli and thinks she May get it that is the secret reason of the present hostilities whatever May be the avowed ones. But watching the performance other Powers May develop an irresistible appetite for a helping of the Turkey dressing and if so the outcome May make decided changes in the map of Europe. Most important cases civil and Crimi-1.a.nal tried in courts of the Eastern Ford to h11ss this Opportunity Shore of Virginia while not in any t0 Purchase from a Large and sense of the word an orator he was c a j a Public speaker of Force. Clearness c0mpl6t6 11116 of hew goods and Perspicuity marked his addresses saying from 25% to 50% on on All occasions. He rarely repeated himself in an argument and dwelling a amp in Purchase. Only Long enough to make the Point j a even under our hand this Clear so a Rule he consumed but litin., tie time in the argument of his cases the la Ltd Clay 01 act Oder before court or jury. His logical j9ll. Mind his knowledge of technical Lawa and the rules of evidence made him a a a a 1 _ _ _ dangerous opponent in the trial of a a. X v. Case. Early in life he took an Active interest in politics and was elected to the Senate of Virginia representing Accomac and Northampton counties in this Branch of the general Assembly. In this body he served two terms during the last term he was chairman of the committee for courts of Justice and a member of the committee to receive the report of the re visors of the code of Virginia the Revi airs being judges Staples Burks and Riley pet haps the most distinguished j members of the bar of the state at that time two of these gentlemen had been members of the supreme court of appeals of Virginia and the third later became an honoured member of that body. Several times or. Blackstone a name was prominently mentioned for Congress from this District and once at least for attorney general of Virginia. Or. Blackstone was a Delegate to the National demo cratic convention which met in Chicago in 1896, which convention the american red Cross society both a Noble and efficient institution As was demonstrated in its promptness in Rushing to the Relief of the Little Village of Austin pa., wiped out by the breaking of a dam near it a few Days ago. It was several hours after the disaster occurred at 2 30 of clock saturday afternoon that athe outside world heard the dreadful tidings yet by ten of clock that night red Cross representatives were on their Way to the scene and supplies medicines and nurses were hurried Forth on the first available train from the Headquarters at Washington. The people of the United states have every reason to feel proud of the american red Cross and to generously support it in its Noble work. Judge William r. Barksdale according to a news item of general circulation is being urged to become a candidate for Congress next year from the sixth District in opposition to representative Carter Glass of Lynchburg. By whom it is not stated but the information Lack ing in that respect could doubtless be supplied by the political machine of the state. In other words the machine if it would speak out would say Glass marked for defeat by the organization and judge Barksdale has been selected As the strongest opponent of or. Glass in the sixth District and As most Likely to win out in the contest Henry c. Stuart former corporation commissioner evidently is not of those who believe that the Quot office should seek the Many but is in that larger class who believe that if you want an office you must go after it and be Early in the game. He has already announced i personal letter to a Richmond Friend that he will from now on be an Active Candi Date for the democratic gubernatorial nomination. It is expected that he will make his plans Public at the state fair this week. His silence during the late senatorial contest is now explained. Sale of valuable Timber and land.
