Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - December 1, 1920, Big Stone Gap, Virginia Peninsula a Enterprise John w. Edmonds editor and owner. Too Oman court House a. Rotated at the Post office at Accomac o. A. Va., As second class matter. Or saturday. March 23, 1912. The eyes of the world Are turned upon Virginia at this time and virginians Are still gasping in horror at the shame and disgrace Laid upon us by the most atrocious and brutal murder in the annals of crime. On general principles we Are opposed to punishment for crime except As meted out by the courts and then Only after a fair and impartial trial. But in the Case of the Allens who so ruthlessly shot Down judge Massie Commonwealth s attorney Foster sheriff Webb and dangerously wounded clerk goad we feel that they have placed themselves beyond the human family and Are Only to be regarded As dangerous wild beasts. Should a lion or other dangerous beast escape from a menagerie or zoo and begin to deprecate upon cattle and sheep to say nothing of men bodies of Resolute men would themselves and pursue this beast until found and when found would be destroyed. So should the forces of the state be employed to Hunt these Allens and when found no Effort should be made to take them alive but they should be shot Down like dangerous wild beasts. The question of expense should not be considered. If it requires every Dollar of the states resources and the services of every Able bodied Man in the Commonwealth these should All be used that the majesty of the Law May be upheld. Let us remember that this is no common crime. These men dared to invade the sacred Temple of Justice and stain her altars with the blood of men who wrought As servants of the state. This crime has no parallel in modern history and when one reads the mind goes Back to the dark Days of the Caesars and the borgias and we gasp and wonder if after All has our civilization advanced. We beg that the great outside world do not judge Virginia by this most atrocious and horrible tragedy. Our people As a whole Are cultivated and Law abiding they deplore the fact this awful stain rests upon them. The slain men Are martyrs to the cause of Justice and their tragic death will enshrine their memory in the heart of the nation. Steps Are being taken to place monuments Over the dead and also to provide Means for the maintenance of their families. This is a move in the right direction. True the legislature is two years in the future but Loyal virginians will see to it that these claims Are met until the general Assembly of 1914 can make ample provision for their needs. But let the Hunt go on. Virginia cannot afford to drop the Pursuit until the gang has been exterminated. The High Cost of living will be the great Issue in the coming National Campaign. The democratic party meets the Issue with a definite program to insure a reduction in the Cost of the necessaries of life. As one step in that direction the Bill to place sugar on the free list known As the Underwood Bill is of great importance. If this Bill becomes a Law it is estimated that the Cost of sugar will be reduced one and a half cents a Pound the Only sufferer by reason of the reduction being the sugar Trust coincidentally with the free sugar Bill the democrats have introduced a measure to tax individual and corporation incomes in excess of 55,000 a year As a Federal Revenue measure. The Bill is so framed As to avoid the pitfall of unconstitutionality which was dug for the income tax by the supreme court a few years ago. Its passage and approval would shift a Large share of the Burden of taxation where it belongs on the shoulders of the wealthy who escape the payment of anywhere near their fair share of the expenses of government under the present Tariff system. Quot tax wealth not poverty Quot is Good democratic doctrine Well exemplified in the free sugar and income tax Bills. Amundsen s exploit in reaching the South pole is to be emulated by a danish expedition to explore Greenland. The explorers will attempt to Cross the great Island at its widest part spanning a distance of about 700 Miles and covering a territory which has never been trod by the foot of Man. The leaders Are Captain Koch of the danish general staff and or. Tudanger a botanist they will take with them fifteen of the hardiest Iceland ironies which they believe will serve them better than Eskimo dogs. It is a question whether the results of the expedition will prove of any commercial or real geographical value but As a venture of daring its outcome will be awaited with interest on the Day the supreme court handed Down the decision dissolving the Standard Oil company shares in that corporation were quoted at $625. Nine months later the Stock sold at $900 a share the highest Point it has Ever reached. This Means according to the estimates Given through the press that in nine months after the Quot octopus Quot Quot was brought to its Knees and Quot dissolved the Market value of its Stock has increased $100,000,000-with this example before the other trusts it is to be feared that the supreme court will have to work overtime to keep up with the demand for the dissolution of predatory combinations. Quot As Maine goes so goes the nation a and Maine has again gone democratic. In the City elections just held she has elected four democratic mayors to one Republican. Of course it May be said that Only local issues were at stake yet it is fair to assume that in a presidential year the results Are not without significance As indicating the trend of the Public mind on National affairs. Maine is apparently Well satisfied to remain in the democratic column where she was placed in the nation wide upheaval of 1910 after a generation of adherence to Republican w. C. T. U. Convention. The Bema annual by of convention of the w. O. T. U. Of Accomac and Northampton assembled in the E. Church in Franklin City on March 12-13, with Greenbackville Union despite the wind rain and mud quite a congregation assembled on the evening of the 12th. W e were greatly encouraged by the presence of fifty Young men at this session. The pastor of the P. Church of Green Sackville Rev. Miller in the absence of the pastor of the E. Church most graciously welcomed us conducted devotional services and gave us several helpful addresses. The reports from departments showed that Earnest work is being accomplished. Our new president mrs. Lloyd Savage presided with Grace and dignity. The presence of our state Cor. Secretary mrs. Lillian Shepherd with her Sweet songs her Chalk talk to the children and Earnest addresses added greatly to the interest of the meeting. Mrs. Sue fames our former president was present and gave an Earnest talk to the children the whole school with the teachers being present. Memorial services were held for our departed co labourers Brothers will Savage and John Duncan and sister Jennie Byrd of Onley Union and sister Janie Davis of Chineo Teague Union. Mrs. Powell made a very Earnest and interesting address after which she Battle song of Greenbackville Union which she had composed was snug by the choir. Because of the i clemency of the weather the addresses of Welcome were not Given until the last evening. Rev. Or. Wilder welcomed us in behalf of the Church be miss of Aptman for the Union and master Paul Jones for the l. T. In the absence of mrs. Elmore of Onancock Union who was so have responded miss Willie Evans if Horntown Union consented to take her place. At this session the spacious edifice was so packed with attentive interested men women and children that extra seats had to be brought in. Mrs. Shepherd made the address of the evening. Sweet songs and recitations added to the pleasantness of the occasion. The report would not be Complete without mentioning Little miss Bessie Oore of Onley l. T. L., who recited at every session and made the collection address. While everyone deplored the action of the state Senate in its failure to adopt the enabling act no one was discouraged but determined to work in creating sentiment that shall demand the driving from our land everything that can Debauch our manhood or mar our womanhood. Our stay at Greenbackville and Franklin pity was most pleasant and we extend to pastor and people our Heartfelt thanks for their hospitality their kindly helpfulness in making this the Best attended and one of the most inspiring conventions we have Ever held.
