Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - December 18, 1907, Big Stone Gap, Virginia Accomac court House a. Saturday May 1, sft7. Entered at the Post office at Accomac 0. A. Va., As see oud class matter. Grover Cleveland the party wrecker Lias again been heard from. made a speech at a dinner of the Reform club in sew York lost week full of venom to the party which twice placed him in Power Aud the treacherous part he played in its defeat in the last presidential election. His speech showed too that he is not pleased with the republicans. In fact that nobody Cau do anything that is right but himself. nuts to be president again it is believed in 1900, and his speech is regarded As a sort of announcement that he is in the hands of his friends. Senator Daniel commented upon the speech by simply saying Quot hark from the Tomb a doleful the dedication of the Grant Monument in sew York City last tuesday was an imposing affair. The Iii Itaev pageant was the truest. Perhaps Ever seen in the country and was participated in by troops from nearly every state in the i upon. Virginia and other Southern states were Well represented in the Parade and All along the line the men of the South received an ovation. Citizens not Only from All sections of the country hut from almost every nation of the Earth were present on the occasion and paid without regard to race or Creed or party prejudice the last Aud Long delayed Honor of the living to the dead hero. For that least everybody seemed to be willing to say in the Lau Page of the dead chieftain Quot let us have the latest from Gotham is a silly proposition of the sew York Herald to remove the remains of Washington from mount Vernon to sew York. No tribute of course is intended to Washington by the proposition but new York wants the Tomb of the father of his country for the gain there would be in it. People would be attracted to it and the pilgrimage could not be made without spending Money in that City. The proposition is not Only absurd but so ridiculous that the serious manner in which it is accepted by some is amusing. The Fervour with which our governor for instance responded to the inquiry whether Virginia would consent to the removal of the Tomb indicated that he was already to order out the militia to prevent it. The name and Fame of Washington is the heritage of the whole country but no one ought to be so stupid As to believe that the remains of the illustrious son of Virginia should be removed beyond the limits of the state or that the people of the country would consent to it. The exposition at it Ashville opens to Day and will remain open for six months. It is to commemorate the one Lindreth anniversary of the admission of the state of Tennessee into the Union. The Success of the great undertaking is assured and every Day of the exposition will be full of interest to those who can attend it.

It is not positively known that any lives were lost but free sailors from the Bishoff Are re sorted to have been drowned in at erupting to escape. The loss is estimated at Between me and a half and two millions Par rally covered by insurance. Every possible Effort to combat the Lames was put Forth. The origin of he fire is clothed in obscurity but i Well defined Rumor credits it to Poutane Ous combustion. Many be Ieve it to have been the work of an incendiary. Col. John s. Mosby badly Hurt. Col. John s. Mosby received a very serious injury Friday of last week near the diversity of Virginia. The colonel went to Charlottesville to at tend the performance of a play writ ted by his son.
