Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - February 4, 1920, Big Stone Gap, Virginia Plumber steam and hot water fitter s. J. Bulls is the place to buy your Peninsula a Enterprise John w. Edmonds editor and owner too Oman court House a. Suat the Post office at a conic o. R., va., As second class matter. Saturday february 18, 1911. The voters of Virginia concurring in the views of Hon. We. J. Bryan As to the fitness of Hon. We. A. Jones for the a title of senator a should and doubtless will answer in the Affine a tiie the following query propounded by or. Bryan in a late Issue of his paper the commoner a will the state of Virginia affix the title of senator to the name of Hon. William a. Jones the commoner is glad to learn that he has consented to become a candidate. is just the kind of a Man we need in the United states Senate. His Long service in the House has demonstrated both his capability and his Fidelity. is industrious and always at work for his constituents. is democratic to the Core and adheres to the rules Laid Down by Jefferson and Jackson. is courageous and does not hesitate to risk his All in defense of what he believes to be right and he is incorruptible. When senators Are elected by direct vote of the people we shall have More men like William a. Jones in the Senate for the Honor of representing the state will be the prize awarded to those who have demonstrated their fitness in lower or. Jones is entitled to our support for another reason not Given by the commoner. has Ever been the implacable foe of the a a machine in Vir Ginia and is now in open warfare against it. And we will rally around him in the fight which he will make in the next few months if we would rid ourselves of the few a Bosses a who a run things in Virginia in their own interest and in the interest of those Only who according to their boast a speak the language of the the democrats of the House in caucus have again Given a Good account of themselves and demonstrated a commendable sense of Devotion to the Public interest by formally pledging themselves to vote for Canadian reciprocity. That the sentiment in favor of the reciprocity treaty was Well nigh unanimous was indicated by the vote 90 to 22. The majority of those few democrats who did not favor support of the treaty took their stand on the ground that there was no occasion to Rush the Taft treaty through without amendment because of the Painti King work of Tariff revision that would soon be undertaken by a democratic Congress. A few of the dissenters were such in the interests of their local constituencies who foresaw some slight disadvantage to their sections in the pending treaty. But the vast majority of democratic representatives viewed the whole subject from a Broad patriotic standpoint a blinded by partisan advantage and Unwar Ped by selfish considerations. The support of the democrats insures the passage of the reciprocity treaty in the House. What its Fate May be in the Senate is problematical. Later advices Are that president tafts reciprocity a agreement with Canada was ratified in the House of representatives tuesday night through the support of an almost solid demo cratic vote. The Mccall Bill carrying the agreement into effect was passed 221 to 92. A majority of the republicans present voted against the Meas ure the division being 78 ayes and 87 noes. The democratic vote was 143 ayes and Only 5 noes. A majority of the Republican insurgents present voted for the Bill. While it seems certain that Hon. We. J. Bryan will not soon again be called upon to Lead the forces of democracy the following letter sent out to the old Bryan democrats through out the country indicates that he is keeping abreast with Public sentiment and wishes to exert his still great Power in favor of real popular demands based on investigation of what the people really want first what is the political situation throughout the country second who in your opinion would be the most available candidate to Lead the progressive forces third suggest a plan to arouse progressive democrats and get them to act before delegates Are selected to the next democratic National convention. Or. Bryan is still and will Long continue to be a powerful Factor in the fortunes of the democracy. Like other great thinkers he lived ahead of his time and enunciated doctrines which were scoffed at by the politicians pop Listic and reactionary. Yet these same doctrines have been appropriated and made use of by High Republican National officers and have come to be regarded by the Public As part of the progressive necessities of the country. Senator Owen of Oklahoma uttered words that were As truthful As they were biting when in speaking against the ship subsidy Bill he advised the Senate to adjourn and go Home. A this Congress has been repudiated by the american people declared senator Owen a and yet it continues in session in an Effort to put through the discredited legislation like the ship subsidy Bill. The people repudiated the party in Power because of its advocacy of ship subsidy other subsidies and its subservience to the special the dignity of such eminent statesmen As vice president Sherman senator Lorimer and All the horde of discredited servants of the special interests was considerably ruffled by senator Owens Plain talk. The truth frequently hurts. The tenth annual convention of the Virginia anti Saloon league will be held in Newport news february 21 and 22. Virginia new. Rev. Or. W. F. Quot Dunaway of Lancaster who was so ill for a time is up and out again.3. Testing of cattle for tuberculosis has been resumed under the direction of the state Dairy and food department.

The Virginia anti tuberculosis association has sent out 800 eight Sheet posters which will be placed in cities and towns showing the cause and prevention of consumption. This is a part of an organized War fare upon preventable diseases. Tazewell county citizens at a mass meeting have decided to Peticia a the court to authorize an election on a void Issue of $600,000 for Good roads the meeting was addressed by st. Lulien Wilson state Highway commissioner and others judge Tomas e. Blakey of Essex and or. Pc k. Bauman came up on Steamer Friday night. They Are both enthusiastic Jones men for the Senate and say that a Martin Man is Seldom found in Essex and is a curiosity in Lance. State senator Don p. Halsey of Lynchburg announces his candidacy for Congress from the sixth District. The incumbent Carter Glass is a candidate for u. S. Senator. Halsey has been Active in the state Senate during during his term of office. Representative c. C. Carlin effectually blocked the plan for placing the reformatory of District of Columbia in close proximity to it. Vernon. By or. Carling a labors no appropriation will be made. Or. Carling a amendment prevailed by a vote of 112 to 42. It is understood that if there shall be an extra session of Congress ordered by the president for revising the Tariff that governor Mann will appoint Sena or Swanson to serve till March 3,1912, that being the period intervening Between the calling of the session and the convening of the Virginia legislature.
