Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - February 27, 1907, Big Stone Gap, Virginia Nuns us be Rise. Accomac court House a. Saturday junk -27, 1896. Entered at the Post office at Accomac c. A. A. As second class matter. In our last Issue we had something to say of the successful work done at the Margaret Academy during the session just ended and we took Occa Sion to Call the attention of the peo ple of the Eastern Shore to the merits of this school and its claims upon them for a generous patronage and support. The Best evidence of the excellence of an Academy a the sue Cess that attends its pupils when they have passed into the higher colleges and universities of the country. Measured by this Standard the mar Garet Academy has a record of which her officers and instructors maybe justly proud. Every year some one of her old pupils wins distinguished honors at College or University and sometimes there Are More than one to share these honors. During the past few years pupils of this Academy have been studying at the University of Virginia and at Harvard University in Massachusetts. The last named is the oldest richest and most illustrious educational institution of America. It has More than three thousand students representing Al most every state in the Union Aud Many foreign countries. In looking Over the list of graduates and Honor men at the University of Virginia we tied that or. Sidney Kellam. Of Onan cock was graduated in the depart ments of chemistry mathematics French and latin and or. Griffin Holland of Eastville va., received the degree of doctor of Medicine and the Gold medal of the Washington society for the Best debater. Or. S. Upshur Hopkins of Onancock who has been attending Harvard univer sity has been appointed instructor in that great school and to add to his his High honors already achieved he Lias secured through the recommendation of the Harvard faculty a very responsible and lucrative appoint ment for the summer months from president Roberts of the Pennsyl Vania Railroad who desired to secure a Man of High scholarship and strict integrity to do special work of great importance. There Are doubtless others of the old Academy students who deserve honorable mention Here for the Progress made and Success achieved last session but the examples cited above Are enough to show that we have a school Here on the Eastern Shore which challenges comparison with the Best academies in the land and which measured bythe Standard of Success achieved bits pupils in the higher institutions of learning shows that it is fulfilling with admirable efficiency the functions of a great preparatory school whether for College or the Active duties of life. A party of Lawless men from Mary land As appears irom the following dispatch published in a late Issue of the Baltimore Sun invaded the state of Virginia last week and carried away by Force a Batteau in the Law Ful custody of our officers about thirty citizens of Asbury near Crisfield my. Went to Holden screen Virginia thursday last for the purpose of retaking the Batteau in which Aaron Byrd and William Moore were captured by the Virginia state fishery Force Oil june 10th.they arrived at their destination about 7 o clock in the morning and at once made inquiries about the boat. They Learned that the objector their search had been placed on rollers carried far Inland and concealed among the Reeds. They pressed a team of oxen into service place the boat on rollers again and soon had her Back into the water.1 their action in this matter keeping with their past conduct in our Waters. Men who Avail them selves of every Opportunity to invade our territory and take our Oyster and crabs of course would not Hesi Tate to recapture if they could prop erty forfeited to the Commonwealth of Virginia in which they made their depredations into our Waters. In other words they wanted the l oat and urged on by the Small Fry politicians who knew they had no right to expect that it would be returned to them by the state of Virginia they came like Freebo Oters and took her. Such being the facts it will occur to the average virginian that the Good offices of the governor of Virginia which they have invoked to the end that the crab thieves now confined in our jail should be re leased should be in the other direction. Marylander have no just cause of complaint because of the arrests recently made and they know it and there could be no More Flimsy excuse than that upon which they seek to escape punishment for their acts. Beacons on the Shore even if the Waters Are not marked by buoys in. Dictate too plainly the dividing line Between the two states for them to make the mistake of getting Over a mile in Virginia As those did who were recently captured in our Waters. If Marylander were caught dredging in Pungoteague Creek there Are ,5 ome of them who would be willing to swear that they were so near the line that for the Sake of the Good relations which ought to exist be tween the states no punishment ought to be meted out to them. Our governor May be tender hearted but he cannot afford to lose his head in this matter and he certainly cannot commit the Folly of encroaching upon the prerogatives of the judiciary As he has been requested by the governor of Maryland and have a Nolle entered in the cases of the prisoners recently i fir cent do Ohlf. We hear a great Deal from the Gold Standard men about their objection to the fifty cent by this they mean the Silver Dollar or the Silver certificate representing the Silver Dollar. They do not want a fifty cent Dollar. They insist upon a Gold Dollar which they declare is Worth just twice As much As a Silver Dollar or a Silver certificate. Suppose they begin at the Banks and Stop them from giving them fifty cent dollars. Let any Man who is fortunate enough to have a Bank account inquire of the people to whom he gives checks what kind of Money they get at the Banks. They will Tell him that in most cases they receive nothing but Silver certificates which we Are told Are Only Worth fifty cents on the Dollar. The amount of Gold Coin in existence bearing the stamp of the United states is a Little Over six Hundred millions. The amount of Silver dollars in bearing the United states stamp is about four Hundred and thirty Mil Lions. Three Hundred and sixty Mil Lions of these Silver dollars have Beon deposited in the Treasury by their owners who received therefor Silver certificates. These Silver certificates read As follows this certifies that there has Beon deposited in the Treasury of the United states one Silver Dollar Able to bearer on and so with the different denominations of the same. These certificates constitute much the larger portion of the paper Money in circulation among the people. Very few greenbacks will be seen. The govern ment has stored away in the Treasury a surplus of very nearly two Hundred d the Gold Reserve of one Hundred and six millions. Then the Bank reserves Are in greenbacks. So it seems that the chief circulating medium of the country consists of Silver certificates which the Gold bugs say Are Worth Only fifty cents on the Dollar. The Banks pass them for full dollars. The government receives them As foil dollars for All kinds of taxes and duties and other duos. It must be therefore that the fifty cent Dollar is just As Good As any other Dollar. It seems a Little strange that the officials of the Banks which out Silver certificates almost exclusively upon depositors checks should lie declaring Thorn to to Worth Only fifty cents on the Dollar. If they toil the truth the Banks must be cheat ing everybody out of just fifty cents on every Dollar. And if the Silver certificates Are really Good whole dollars it would seem to be lying to Call them fifty cent dollars. Are the Banks lying to the people or cheat ing their depositors. If they pass off a fifty cent Dollar they arc cheat ing. If the dollars which they Cal fifty cent dollars Are really one Hundred cent dollars they must Bei enquirer. Important decision concerning sunday freight trains. The Appomattox Ami Buckingham times of last week contains the following article concerning an important decision recently handed Down by the court of appeals on the 8th Day of june is the Norfolk and Western Railroad com Pany was indicted by an Appomattox grand jury for Ruu Piug freight trains on sunday. The Case came up for trial and was tried at the november term following of the county court. They were found guilty and a line of $50 was imposed. The company appealed the Case to the circuit court which at the december term 1893, affirmed the decision of our county court. The Case was carried to the supreme court of appeals where it has been pending Ever since. The court of appeals in its opinion ren dered last thursday says Norfolk and Western Railroad company is. The Commonwealth Section 3801 of the code which pro Hibits Railroad companies from run Ning freight trains on sunday is held not to be in conflict with the com Merce clause of the Constitution of the United states and is a valid exercise of the police Power of Testate for the Protection of the morals and health of the people. The state has the right in order to secure and protect the Laws of health of its citizens or to preserve Good order and the Public morals to legislate for such purposes. And where it i done in Good Faith and without discrimination against interstate or foreign Commerce it is not in Viola tion of the Commerce clause of the Constitution of the United states although such legislation May some times touch in its exorcise the line separating the respective domains of Federal and state authority and to some extent affect interstate an foreign immediately after the opinion was handed Down by the supreme court the Norfolk and Western Railroad issued orders that no freight trains should be run on sundays.
