Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - December 4, 1907, Big Stone Gap, Virginia Accomac Couitt House a. Saturday april 10, Lse 7. Entered at the Post office it Accomac o. H., vu., As second class matter. The election returns this week from Many cities in Ohio Chicago Aud Detroit seem to indicate a remarkable change in sentiment at those Points since lust november. The Homes of president Mckinley senator Foraker Aud even of Ross haunt did not escape the democratic tidal wave which swept Over those sections. Canton the Home of Mckinley went democratic the Republican plurality of 20,000 last year in Cincinnati the Home of sentor Foraker was displaced by a democratic plurality of Over 7,000 and Large democratic gains were made at Cleveland the Home of Ross Hanna. The result is attributed to various causes and loss of Eon Lidelee in Republican Bosses Aud the growth of free Silver sentiment Are mentioned among them. They seem to have found out that they were duped by the republicans Aud to by willing to Correct As far As possible the mistakes made by them in the fall election. The probable result of these elections in state or nut Iona politics it is too Early of course to estimate but it May be accepted As the forerunner perhaps of what tin Republican party has the right to expect in psf a when Congress is again to be elected if it can succeed no better than it has done in fulfilling its promises to improve Industrial conditions and cause better times the Maryland annual conf Renet of the methodist protestant Church which met in Baltimore wednesday has elected Rev. A. D. Melvin president in place of Rev. Or. , who has held the Olliee for the last live years the limit of the Church. The position is an important and res Pousi ble Oue combining As it does the duties of the Bishop Aud presiding elders of the methodist Episcopa Church. His duties Are not confined to the churches in the state of Maryland As the name of the conference seems to indicate. But extends Over the Large Aud influential body o. Christians of that denomination who Are members of the churches in a comae. Rev. E. M. Peter son one of the most eminent divines of the m. E. Church South is dead. passed away at his residence in Petersburg last saturday after a Long illness in the Cath year of his age. Few men were better equipped for their work or worked with greater Zeal or Energy in the cause of the master he served. entered the methodist Church when it was comparatively Young in Virginia Aud for half a Century he stood by it and participated in All its struggles and triumphs. Christian people of every denomination recognized his Worth and feel a loss in his death. Hon. We. J. Bryan is the Centre of attraction at Washington Aud Vicinity at this time. visited Alexandria last monday was Given a Public reception there Aud made a speech of an hour in favor of free Silver coinage. was in Washington tuesday to argue a Case before the supreme court and his Effort before that body it is stated indicated the highest order of Legal ability and made a splendid impression upon the court. seems to retain the same fast hold upon the people which he had during the last election. They follow him in Large crowds everywhere. Hon. William a. Jones has arrived at the conclusion after a Long and careful consideration of the subject that it would be a mistake to Call a constitutional convention at this time. His views in the matter Are published in another column and because of his great ability and High standing with his party should go very far in convincing those who have no definite opinion on the subject what their duty will be in cast ing their votes at the May election. A message sent to Congress last wednesday by president Mckinley urging Relief for the regions of the Mississippi Valley recently devastated by the most destructive hoods that have Ever visited that Section was followed by the adoption of a joint Resolution passed by both houses appropriating $209,099 for the Purchase and distribution of supplies. The annual meeting of the Virginia division daughters of the confederacy will be held in Richmond april 22d. A Large number of lady delegates from All parts of the state will be in attendance Aud the meeting bids fair to be of great interest to the member of the organization. Sex governor Mckinney is seriously ill at his Home at Farmville and it is stated that while there is no immediate danger of dissolution that he cannot Ever be a Well Man again and the end is probably not very Remote. has been 8iiice about the second year of his term As governor. The constitutional convention question. The following interview of Trio Richmond dispatches Washington correspondent with . A. Jones appeared in that paper of the Atli instant 1 asked or. Jones what he thought of the proposition convention Aud he replied that after Long Aud careful consideration of that subject lie had come to the conclusion that it would be u mistake to Call such u convention. The democratic party and press he said were divided a to the propriety and desirability of holding the convention and inasmuch As the party had declined to take Auy position in regard to this most important question he thought democrats were making a mistake when they agitated the subject. There was great diversity of opinion too he said among the advocates of a convention As to the object to be attained thereby. Some desired to change our judiciary system and Reform our Eon Uty organization whilst the Paramount object with others was to provide for an educational qualification and thus restrict the suffrage lie had 110 doubt he said that our judicial and county systems could be improved upon but everything that a constitutional convention could do ill this regard could be equally As Well equally As expeditiously and far More economically accomplished through amendments to be submitted by the legislature in the manner provided for in the present Constitution. Restricting Tuk sask rank. As to restricting the suffrage or. Jones said lie was opposed to Auy educational qualification of a prerequisite to the right to vote. regarded educational As Well As property test of the right to vote As us democratic Aud besides said he Auy advantage that might accrue to the democratic party by tie adoption of an educational qualification would be of a most temporary character Aud sooner or later would bring disaster upon the party. Most of the Young negroes in Liis Section he said could read and write Aud they constituted the most disorderly improvident and objectionable element of their race. The older members of that race were by far the most Law abiding Aud conservative and entertained More Friendly feelings tor the White people and they were generally speaking entirely without education Aud would he in the Luau the ouly negroes who would he affected Quot by the adoption of a educational test. There were Many reasons he said Why he was opposed to a convention but these were in his opinion sufficient to justify his position. Many of the most substantial and Best citizens of his Section men who had fought the Battles of the confederacy Anil who had been unswerving in their support of the democratic party would have this most deeply cherished Aud most wisely exercised right taken from them by an educational qualification and have their mortification intensified said or. Jones at the spectacle of Voung negroes who had no Conception at the obligations of citizenship Aud no regard for the rights of those who the taxes and support the government exercising a right and a privilege which they were supposed to be unworthy to enjoy. Mrs. Samuel Stamm of Logau Tou pa., bore her thirty four years of suffering with courage and fortitude. Her trouble was rheumatism in the knee. In consequence her limb had become so stiff that she could hardly walk. Or. Stamm is a Well to do merchant and had spared no pains or expense to relieve her hut with Little Success until one night when it Glew so painful that she could hardly endure it he persuaded her to try Chamberlain s Bain Balm. The effect was magical. The first application relieved the pain and its continued use has removed All stiffness Aud Given her the free use of her limb once More. If you have a Friend who is troubled with rheumatism insist on their giving this remedy a trial Ion Cun do them no greater favor As it is sure to give prompt Relief and if they Are a Little patient it will effect d cure.
