Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - December 11, 1907, Big Stone Gap, Virginia Iii str . Accomac court House a. Saturday april 24, lsi�7. I Uteri at the Fos Toffice at Accomac 0. A. Va., As second class matter. Greece and Turkey Are now engaged a a a War the result of which Cau hardly be regarded with in Dii Torence by the Christian people of world however Remote they May be from the scene of action. Greece is u it As the Champion of Crete people of her own Tongue and blood and is the Only ratio a that has responded to the Call for Aid. Which that people has asked in their struggle to relieve themselves from the oppression of the turks. The fight which she is making for them is in the interest of civilization Anil christianity against n nation whose whole history is made up of crime and which in a few years has slaughtered tens of thousands of weak and defenceless people. What the result will be if Greece is to be left alone to make the fight against the turks Carnot now be seen but it is hardly probable that All of the Christian nations of the world can be kept out of the Light Long if it should be disastrous to the greeks. The Christian people of the world will Force the great Powers to take a hand in the matter however reluctant they May seem to do so. She is certain to carry her Point either by the splendid valor of her troops or the Aid of others. How much it May Cost Greece before Aid is Given by other nations is the problem. The first great Battle Between them was fought Jast wednesday. The greek accounts say it was a draw. The turks say that the greeks were Defeated. Many of the papers which claimed to be democratic but which did All in their Power to elect president Mckinley and the Republican House of representatives have since repented of the Folly and Are now bitterly denouncing the action of the party in Power. Even the Baltimore Sun so often the upon Gist for the republicans is not altogether pleased with them As the following editorial which lately appeared in its columns in id Cates Quot when the present Congress met a month ago it was a very natural suggestion that the extra session would afford an excellent Opportunity to revise and prune Down some of the extravagant appropriations which had failed to receive president Cleve. Ennd s approval. Inasmuch As the extra session had been called for the express purpose of providing for a deficiency in the revenues of the government it must have occurred to most sensible persons that one Way and perhaps the surest Way of preventing any deficiency would be to reduce expenditures. But to All such suggestions the answer of speaker Reed and the Republican leaders was that there would be no time to consider any other subject than the Tariff. Accordingly the appropriation Bills with All their admitted and confessed extravagances were passed again by the House without reconsideration or any Opportunity afforded for either criticism or amendment. The speaker declined even to appoint the necessary standing committees to which they might have been referred if there had been any disposition to put in Force that rigid Economy in expenditures which president Mckinley in Bis inaugural address had declared to be of equal necessity with an increase of Revenue the Tariff question As these papers ought to have known was the Only question which i a Republican Congress would consider and they ought to have known also that taxing a people As it proposes to do would not restore Confidence and bring Prosperity to the country. With the possible exception of Texas Virginia probably contributes More Money than Uny state in the South to the support or Aid of her Confederate soldiers. The auditor has already issued this year warrants for pensions to the amount of $100,000. Besides this Aid the legislature makes an annual appropriation of $30,000 for the maintenance of the Lee Camp Confederate soldiers Home. The daughters of the confederacy have started a movement in Richmond looking to the raising of sufficient Money to buy the residence at Lexington la., occupied by Gen. K. E. Lee while president of Washington and Lee University and in which he died. More than two Hundred people have lost their lives in the floods prevailing in the Mississippi Valley while 130,000 have been made homeless. The damage to property has been conservatively placed at $100,000,000. It is an interesting fact in connection with the present contest for the democratic nomination for governor that never since the foundation of the government has that Honor been Given to Richmond. In Norfolk All democrats will be permitted to vote at the primaries while in Portsmouth Only those who voted for Bryan Are qualified. It is said that seventy five. Million of dollars have been expended in the South in the education of coloured people since the War. Tuesday sights Frost. Loss estimated to be about a million dollars in Norfolk Section. While most of the truckers of this Section slept last night the Frost wiped out hundreds of thousands of dollars in the shape of growing crops and of Awakening this morning a depressing scene presented itself to them. Up to last night everything was in very promising shape but the wind which saved the truck the night before had lulled with u withering blighting result. Frost and ice both Quot formed during the night and half of the Berry crop was swept out of existence while the potatoes were badly damaged. The Beans and tomatoes also suffered destruction but these Cau be replanted if the Farmers Are fortunate enough to have Tomato plants of hand. Some of them were in Norfolk to Day buying bean seed for replanting two of the largest truckers made estimates to Day of the aggregate loss in Norfolk com to. One said it would foot up a million dollars Aud the other said it would not be far from that figure. The potato crop suffered More of the Western Branch than of this Side of the River the plauts not being so generally up of this Side. The cabbage crop is All Rig lit. Bur needs rain. The Norfolk Section not Only suffered. But the North Carolina crops likewise especially in the Eastern Section and in fact the Frost extended through that state and into the Northern part of South Carolina. A Public Ledger 20th.
