Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - February 27, 1907, Big Stone Gap, Virginia A Fise. Accomac court House a. Saturday junk 27, 1896. Entered at the Post office it Accomac c. 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 occasion to Call the attention of the people 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 tie sue Cess that attends its pupils when they have passed into the higher colleges and universities of the country. Measured by this Standard the Margaret Academy has a record of which her officers and instructors May be justly proud. Every year some Oue of her old pupils wins distinguished honors at College or University Anil 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 almost every state in the Guiou and Many foreign countries. In looking Over the list of graduates and Honor men at the University of Virginia we find that or. Sidney Kellam. Of unan cock was graduated in the departments of chemistry mathematics French and latin Anil or. Griffin Holland of Eastville ya., received the degree of doctor of Medicine and the Gold medal of the Washington society for the Best debater. Or. S. Upshur Hopkins of has been attending Harvard University. Has been appointed instructor in that great school and to add to his his High honors already achieved lie Lias secured through the recommendation of the Harvard faculty a very responsible and lucrative appointment for the summer months from president Roberts of the Pennsylvania 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 Laud and which measured by the Standard of Success achieved by to 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 Maryland As appears from the following dispatch published in a late Issue of the Baltimore Sun invaded the state of \ Irginia last week and carried away by Force a Batteau in the Law Ful custody of our officers a about thirty citizens of Asbury near Crisfield. Md., went to Holden s Creek Virginia thursday last for the purpose of retaking the Batteau in which Aaron Bvrd and William Moore were captured by the Vir Gioia state fishery Force on june Loci. They arrived at their destination about 7 o clock in the morning and at once made inquiries about the boat. They Learned that the object of their search had been placed on rollers carried far Inland and concealed among the Reeds. They pressed a team of oxen into service placed the boat on rollers again and soon had her Back into the their action in this matter in keeping with their past conduct in our Waters. Men who Avail themselves of every Opportunity to invade our territory und take our oysters and crabs of course would not hesitate to recapture if they could prop erty forfeited to the Commonwealth of Virginia in which they made to Weir depredations into our Waters. In other words they wanted the boat und urged on by the Small Fry politicians who knew they had no right to expect that it would be returned to them by tie state of Virginia they came like Freebo Oters and took her. Such being tie 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 released should be in the other direction. Marylander Haven just cause of complaint because of tie 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 to Weir 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 tie mistake of getting Over a mile in Virginia As those did who were recently captured incur Waters. If Marylander were caught dredging in Pungoteague Creek there Are i 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 tie judiciary us he has been requested by the governor of Maryland and have a Nolle entered in the cases of the prisoners recently Firth a Clit Dellar. We hear a great Deal from the Gold Standard men about their objection to the a a fifty Cut Dollar a by this they mean the Silver Dollar or the Silver certificate representing the Silver Dollar. They do not want a fifty Cut 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 Liim that in most cases they receive nothing but Silver certificates which we Are told Are Only Worth fifty cents outline 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 existed be bearing the United states stamp is about four Hundred and thirty millions. Three Hundred Aud sixty millions of these Silver dollars have been deposited in the Treasury by to Weir owners who received therefor Silver certificates. These Silver certificates read As follows a a this certifies that there Lias been deposited in the Treasury of the United states Oue Silver Dollar payable to beater of 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 government Lias stored away in the Treasury a surplus of very nearly two Hundred millions All greenbacks besides the old Reserve of Oue Hundred and six millions. Alien the Bank reserves Are in greenbacks. So it seems that the chief circulating medium of the country consists of Silver certificates which Quot the Gold bugs say Are Worth Only titty cents of the Dollar. The bunks pass them for full dollars. The government receives them As full dollars for All kinds of taxes Aud duties Aud other dues. 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 Cheeks should lie declaring them to be Worth Only fifty cents Oil the Dollar. If they Tell the truth the Banks must lie cheating 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 Lifty Cut dollars. Are the Banks lying to the people or cheating their depositors if they pass off a Lifty Cut Dollar they Are cheating. If Quot the dollars which they fall Lifty Cut dollars Are really one Hundred cent dollars they must be enquirer.
