Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - August 25, 1920, Big Stone Gap, Virginia Peninsula Enterprise John w. Edmonds editor and owner. Too Oman court House a. Entered it the Post office at Accomac o. A. Va., a second class matter. Saturday. October 21. 1911. The Atlantic deeper Waterways association met in annual convention in City of Richmond tuesday night with delegations of distinguished citizens from Al most every state from Maine to Florida in attendance enthusiastic in the movement which for so Long has been the Quot dream of those who would help to take a Long step for commercial and humanitarian betterment the object of the meeting and the results looked for Are Given by the Richmond virginian in the following Quot a deep Inland waterway from new England to the Gulf of Mexico is the end towards which they Are moving. With this system of navigable canals running from Maine to Florida and connecting with All the great Inland cities in route the originators think they will have solved the problem of the efficient and economical handling of heavy freight the tremendous reduction in freight rates alone would represent a Large annual saving to the people and would justify the Enterprise. But in addition these canals would inevitably open up Large stretches of territory for the development of their resources. Furthermore through the canals a Safe Inland passageway would be afforded sailing vessels in the season of storms and around the dangerous places upon the coast. The country is afforded by the Stevenson investigation another sickening revelation of millionaire methods in break ing into the United states Senate. It Cost him $107,793 to secure 56,800 votes in the primaries and the requisite support of the legislature. The sum for cigars and Beer alone in this elevating Campaign ran up to $30,000. How Many men actually received pay for their vote of course is not revealed and will not be but there can be no doubt with so much Money in the Campaign that there was no Lack of actual bribery. The allegation that Stevenson obtained his seat through corrupt practices is fully proven. For Thi Honor of the Senate Stephenson and Lori Mer should be dispossessed of their seats. Doubtless there Are others in the Quot millionaire s club deserving of a like Fate. The Senate must purge itself if it is to retain an Iota of Confidence and respect. For the future Protection of the Public it should be made impossible for wealthy men to be elected to the senator ship with out other qualifications or merits than a bulging barrel. An illustration of the difference Between real leadership and Bossis was presented in new Jersey recently. The democratic state convention sought to pass Resolution endorsing governor Wilson for Anson Nim Serr Opp set the res Anition in open convention declaring that such an endorsement would be inconsistent with the action of the present democratic regime in providing for presidential primaries As the method by which the people of new Jersey shall express their preference. The governors Wise counsel prevailed and the matter of new jerseys Choice was As he advocated left to the people. Hon. We. J. Bryan has at last reached the conclusion that he cannot be elected president of the United states and is no longer in the race for that office. But if he cannot be president he must be Content to occupy a place in history along with Clay Calhoun and Webster. He gives up a lifelong ambition in these words Quot i shall never be president but i would rather go to my grave with the consciousness that i have done right and that i have done All in my Power to give to my country the Best possible form of government than be president at almost precisely the moment that or. Taft was lauding the supreme court Quot Rule of reason decision in a recent speech declaring that it will cause the trusts a naturally to dissolved the sugar Trust was calmly announcing that it proposes to take forty million dollars More out of the Peoples pockets during the next year. It does no to seem to strike the amiable president As the least bit curious that the wicked trusts go right on raising prices As of Yore though they have had plenty of time to Quot naturally dissolved since the supreme courts decision. For the purpose of testing the Validity of the Law providing for county Bond sues payable out of magisterial District levies for the purpose of building Good roads a jest Case was appealed monday to the supreme court. The Point is the recent Bond Issue in Tazewell county. Geo. W. St. Clair of Tazewell appeared at the clerks office monday with his petition and the writ was granted. Little doubt is Felt that the Law will be upheld. In fact an almost similar Case has been practically decided by the court from Lee county when a writ of error was refused. Tea drinkers especially those who prefer the chinese blends May soon find the Price of their luxury advancing in the Wake of Coffey and sugar As a result of the Treasury departments strict ruling against importations of teas artificially coloured. The order already has resulted in turning from american ports several Hundred thousand pounds of chinese Tea treated with prussian Blue talc drugs or chemicals.
