Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - February 11, 1920, Big Stone Gap, Virginia Peninsula Enterprise John w. Edmonds editor and owner. Accomac court House. A entered at the Post office at a com amp a o. H., va., As second class matter. Saturday february 25, 19h. I a a a president Taft is sailing in troubled Waters. To Square himself with his party he must stand to the theory of Protection but to maintain the Confidence of the people he must go for Tariff Reform. In a speech last summer he declared that the Payne Aldrich Bill was the Best Tariff measure Ever enacted by the Republican party. With the object lesson of popular disapproval at the november elections he strives to save himself for re nomination by an admission of the protective fallacy with his Canadian reciprocity treaty. For this the interests condemn him and the progressives and insurgents Praise him meanwhile the Tariff commission idea is evolved by him As a measure to allay the popular distrust and to secure the return of the republicans to Power on the ground that a it is the Best medium for dealing with the affairs of the the president will have a hard time to free himself from his difficulties. He cannot successfully carry water on both shoulders. He will have to definitely align himself with the insurgents or the old guard. The latter Are doomed to defeat they have already been Defeated. The former can Only succeed with the help of democrats and to have that they must persist in their adherence to democratic principle which takes them out of the ranks of the regulars in their party and makes them practically democrats. Whichever Horn of the dilemma the president chooses to seize will be found to be uncomfortable. The sessions of the Virginia anti Saloon league in Newport news this week have been largely attended by representative citizens from every Section of the state and Strong speeches have been made by prominent clergymen and political leaders of the state favouring state wide prohibition and for the submission of the question to the people. The Steps looking to that end had not been disclosed according to our latest advices but doubtless will be before the sessions have closed. The utterances which have created the most sensation during the sessions of the body have been the denunciation of the Independent press a was allies of the drunkard makers a speech of Hon. Carter Glass asserting that the politicians and liquor interests Are nullifying the registration Laws and the attack by the president of the league upon governor Mann charging that he showed Lack of moral courage in failing to support the strode Bill for state wide submission during the last session of the legislature. The governor will reply to this attack upon him and should As to other charges made against him in the race for the position now held by him. The location of the next National conventions is beginning to be discussed in Washington. On the democratic Side thus far but four cities have been seriously discussed Chicago Louisville new York and Baltimore. Of Chicago the democrats seem to feel shy because of certain political influences entering there which might be employed to pack the convention. There is More talk about Louisville Ihan any other City possibly because the present democratic delegation in Congress is largely Southern. New York is much in favor. The democratic party has not held a National convention the re since the civil War and Many democrats believe that the time has come to turn to the East for support but to All of these there Are some objections which put them out of the race. Baltimore All agree is the Ideal place for a National convention because of its Central location the unbounded hospitality of its people and the facility for which it is famous for handling Large bodies of people. The vast amount of presidential Tim. Ber in the democratic party is an almost sure indication of party Success in 1912�?and the significance of it All is the Quality of the Timber. A list is sufficient to indicate this governor Wilson of new Jersey governor Harmon of Ohio governor Foss of Massachusetts governor Marshall of Indiana to say nothing of Champ Clark of Missouri the next speaker of the House Joseph w. Folk and others. Anyone of them would make a president to be proud of. The Norfolk City judges of election accused of fraudulently voting absentees in the democratic congressional primary of August were found not guilty on All fifteen counts upon which they had been indicted. The jury took Only one ballot. This ends the election prosecutions in Norfolk City. In Portsmouth the grand jury which returned a not True Bills was discharged and judge Bain ordered the cases held for further action. In Norfolk county the grand jury has reported itself a blocked a the necessary books having disappeared. The state Board of visitors of the Virginia military Institute upholds the superintendent of that institution in the expulsion of 77 cadets of the Institute of a charge of Mutiny and insubordination last week. It is said that the discipline at the Institute will be even More strict than it has been in the past. The Board intends holding the Institute to a High Standard As a military school and there is a Small Hope that any of the cadets who were expelled will Ever be taken Back. It is stated that Hon. W. A Jones will open his Campaign in Norfolk March 6 or 7. He will be tendered a reception by Hon. St. Geo. Tucker at the a alter a Home there. The u. S.
