Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - February 13, 1907, Big Stone Gap, Virginia Accomac court House a. Saturday june 13, 1s9g. Entered at the of Stoffle at Accomac 0. A. Va., a second Cluiss matter. Contested election eases now eur Gage the attention of the House of representatives and fairness and decency do not seem to bother the majority of the republicans controlling that body. The Rule now is to declare a Democrat a not entitled to his seat Quot if a Republican wants it. A report favourable to a Democrat retaining his seat by the Electious committee is not Only disregarded but the minority in the House is not even give a Chance to tile its views upon the question. Murray a negro from the first South Carolina District was give the seat of or. Elliott from that state last week for no better reason than that the census returns showed a negro majority in that District. Martin populist from North Carolina was voted a seat saturday to the exclusion of or. Lockhart the regularly elected Democrat from the sixth District from that state without giving to the democrats of the body even the Courtesy of a hearing. Or. Tucker too of Virginia it is said must give up his seat because one Jacob Yost wants it and general Jim Walker the new convert to republicanism thinks it would increase his chances of re election in the ninth District. The elections committee of the House has reported almost unanimously in favor of or. Tucker but that is not expected to count for anything. Republicans who Are so for the loaves and fishes cannot do without them and the average Republican is usually willing to help them along that line. There Wasno Justin location for the unseating of Elliott or Lockhart and none will be needed for putting or. Tucker out of his sent if thereby some advantage is to be obtained either for themselves or their friends. The Victory of the Silver its at the Staunton convention so far has not led to the dire disaster to the democratic party which Many predicted would follow such an event. On the contrary Harmony not Only prevailed at the convention but the action of the convention since seems to have been accepted gracefully and loyally by most of the democrats of the state whatever their views on the currency question. In fact there was nothing left for is to do if believers in the democratic doctrine that the majority should Rule but to fall into line and support now the action of our convention As it will Beau duty later to accept the platform of the Chicago convention whatever its action May be on the currency question. We Are for the democratic party first last and All the time. Hon. T. Spicer Curlett of Lancaster is willing to serve the people of the first District As their representative in Congress and has published a card to that effect. He is out not Only a unsolicited by friends a a but has selected a platform for himself and pulled himself upon it. Hon. T. Spicer wants office has always wanted it and with such a competitor As the Hon. Win. A. Jones is Likely to continue to want it. He would doubtless agree to stand upon tue platforms of All the political parties if his political aspirations would be promoted thereby. He Calls himself a Gold Man and with the help of that Metal probably Hopes to win. Hon. T. Spicer though Quot can to get there Quot by the Aid of that or All the others but the thought will be consoling to him perhaps that no other Republican in the District can. Boies and Daniel seem to be the favorite candidates for the nomination at Chicago in the event the Silver forces control the convention. A ticket composed of them it is believed would be supported by All the Silver men of the country and would have a splendid Chance for Success. A ice president Stevenson until of late a prominent candidate is no longer considered As available because of his silence on the Silver Issue and senator Teller prominent As he is As a Republican Silver Man could not of course be the nominee of a democratic convention. Boies and Daniel Only seem to be in the race if a Silver platform is adopted at Chicago. The Republican convention meets at st. Louis next tuesday and or. Mckinley seems to be so far ahead of All of his competitors that it looks now As if no other name would be presented to that body. Senator a Edfield Proctor of Vermont will probably be chosen As the vice presidential candidate. It will not be so easy however for the republicans to agree non a platform and it will require All their skill to Frame one which will be satisfactory to the Gold Standard men and free Silver advocates in their party. Their declarations on the Money question will be looked Forward to with interest. Maryland heretofore counted Only As favouring the Gold Standard seems to have been swept by a free Silver wave. Contrary to expectation and doubtless to the great disgust of the Baltimore Sun a Strong sentiment was developed in favor of the White Metal at the primaries held in several counties of that state on last saturday. Maryland however can us ways be counted upon As one of the democratic states in a presidential contest and it is Gratifying to be Able i that she is getting in line and v. Ii but n to accept the Silver i it forum which is Likely to be adopted it Chicago. Stack ton convention. Virginia democrats declare in juror of free Silver and the unit Rule. The Virginia democratic state convention in session at Staunton on thursday Fth inst., by an overwhelming majority adopted a plat form declaring for the free coinage of Silver at the ratio of 10 to 1 and by n vote of two to Cue instructed the delegates to the National convention at Chicago to vote is a unit for candidates for president and Vic president who endorsed the Froe coinage proposition. A Resolution was passed declaring that the democrats of Virginia would Hail with enthusiastic Delight the nomination of senator Daniel As one of the candidates of the party on the National ticket. Delegates at Largo were elected As follows John w. Daniel w. A. Jones Claude a. Swanson and h. S. Morrison alternates a. O. Hartla Way Roger Gregory George b. Keezell Frank Hume. The electors at Large Are a. B. Mcllwaine. Of Dinwiddle and j. W. Marshall of Craig. Peter j. Otey was chosen for National committeeman. Tine of the features of the Day was the speech of 1 United states senator Martin made during the afternoon while the platform was being waited for. He declared himself Forth free coinage of Silver at 10 to 1, and surprised Many by making a bold assault upon president Cleveland whom he characterized As a Quot party the senator s utterances along this line were received with mingled applause and hisses. Congressman Harry Tucker s de Fence of the principles of sound Money was another feature of the Day. This speech followed that of or. Martin and in it or. Tucker indirectly deprecated so severe a criticism of a democratic president in such a place and reminded those present that they helped to elect or. Cleveland. Krak Coix Auk a intr Virit. Senator Daniel read the majority report of committee of resolutions. To e senator was cheered to the Echo As he read the Feitli of the Silver its signed by 2� of the to committeeman. Hon. B. B. Munford of Richmond handed in a minority report signed by himself de. Echos and judge Atis of Portsmouth declaring against free Silver without International agreement and opposing the unit Rule. Senator Daniel took the hour opposing the minority report and made an eloquent Silver speech favouring the unit Rule. The senator said that England with her vast Gold mines in India and Africa was yet after More Gold and that was the venezuelan question and the Transvaal trouble. John Bull wants to depress prices in America because we furnish him with wheat beef and wools and this was disclosed by Balfour s speech. Senator Daniel reviewed the prophecies of Sherman in its. When the ohioan said that a coinage of $50.0 10,000 of Silver would drive Gold from the country when Presto change wages Rose in two years 12 per cent and Gold allowed this Way. Later it was said repeal the Sherman act and Prosperity will will come. Quot i was in favor of replacing re pealed Republican legislation by democratic doctrine Quot said senator Daniel. A have times become better at last the Issue has gotten beyond the politicians and the people love taken it up. The present financial system is organized rain. This is Light no dress Parade the minority report on resolutions was voted on and lost by a vote of 1,270 to �71. R. C. Marshall a Silver Man opposed the unit Rule in the majority report but even the unit Rule went through by a vote of 1,075 to 5-12. The platform. Quot the democratic party of Virginia in convention assembled declare As follows 1. We adhere to the principles of democracy As announced by Jelter son. Madison Monroe and Mason and the patriots of their Day that this is a government of and for the people and we deprecate the growing in to Deuce of trusts and great combinations of capital As dangerous to the welfare of our people and fraught with disaster to our institutions. 2. We Are opposed to Mckinley ism which proposed to tax the poor Man for the Benefit of trusts and capitalists and we favor a Tariff tax for Revenue limited to the necessities of an economically administrated government and adjusted so As to throw its Burden most lightly upon the great producing classes of our Conn try. 3. We oppose the Republican party because while professing to protect our Labouring men and mechanics they Are in practice filling their mines and factories with pauper labor from Europe foreign to oar Laws and language and inimical to our institutions. We Point to the fact that that party was the author of ail the acts of financial legislation which stimulated the panic and brought of hard times to the country and that it has utterly failed to suggest any scheme of Relief. 4. It is the unwritten Law of this Republic established by the custom and usage of 100 years Aud sanctioned by the example of the greatest Aud Wisest of those who founded and maintained our government that no Man should be eligible for a third term of the presidential office. 5. We denounce As false and slanderous the charges made by the republicans against the democrats of Virginia As to the reason which a counted the general Assembly of the state in submitting to the people the question of holding a constitutional convention. We Point to the Public school system to the settlement of the Public debt Aud to the Good will that exists amongst All tie different races and sections of the Commonwealth us evidence of the Wisdom of democratic Rule. 0. We Are for sound Money the soundest that the world has Ever had or Cun have the Money of our Constitution the Money of the people the Money of civilization through the Ages past Aud destined to be such As we believe for Ages to come. This sound Money should consist of Silver and Gold and of paper redeemable in Silver or Gold at. The option of the payer the units of the whole mass to be kept at parity by coinage rights and equal Legal tender fuse Tion the Only method by which the parity of the two metals Lias been continuously and successfully maintained. 7. We hold to the use of both Gold and Silver As the Standard Money of the country and to the coinage of both Gold and Silver without discriminating against either Metal or charge for mintage. The immediate and Complete restoration of the bimetal ism of Money which existed in the United states from 170 7 to 1873, is in our opinion demanded by the interests of Commerce manufacturers and agriculture which Are alike suffering from the continuous fall of prices Aud the consequent embarrassment or bankruptcy of those engaged therein. And in order so to restore it we demand the full Aud unlimited coinage of both Silver Aud Gold at the ratio of 10 to 1, without waiting tor the assent or you Carrence of any other nation it cannot be that tins great ratio a the Foremost of the Earth in riches and in Power is unable to form a financial system of its own Aud while we would Welcome an International agreement that would Settle Trio vexed question we Are unwilling to defer action or make the interest of our own people dependent upon the course of others. We warn our countrymen until Silver be upheld As Money of redemption and sustained at parity with Gold Liy equal privileges it the mint Aud by equal Legal tender functions a further contract Lou of the currency and the further accumulation of Public indebtedness will be inevitable. We have four dollars less per capita in circulation now than we had in november 1803. When the Sherinan Law was repealed and in the present strained condition of our resources the deficits of Revenue und the fall of prices each further con traction of Money and accumulation of debt would paralyse business lower wages and bring upon the country widespread panic Aud ruin. We hereby instruct All of the Dele Gates from Virginia to the National convention at Chicago to vote for the platform declaring for the free and unlimited coinage of Silver at the ratio of 10 to 1, Aud for candidates for president and vice president who openly advocate that vote on the to Xit ill la. The vote on the unit Rule in tile convention was considered the most important East and showed the de termination of the majority to have their wishes carried out.
