Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - July 14, 1920, Big Stone Gap, Virginia Peninsula Enterprise John w. Edmonds editor and owner. Too Oman court House a. Entered at the poet office at Accomac o. S., va., As second class matter. Saturday september 9, 1911. The a a machine wins in Virginia and Thomas s. Martin and Claude a Swan son will succeed themselves As United states senators from Virginia. Such at least Are the advices received by Telegram at the time of going to press and presumably Correct. The a a machine wins in spite of the fact As the times Dis Patch says a that Martin judged by his own letters and his own statements was found unworthy that Swanson judged by his own actions his own admissions and his own claims was found unfaithful the majority claimed by the a machine is about 30,000. The result on the Eastern Shore shows a Victory for Hon. We. A. Jones and Hon Carter Glass but their majority is not As Large As it should have been and was expected. Many of the voters in the two counties instead of considering the great Issue involved and arriving at their own conclusion in the matter Here As elsewhere in the state rather listened to and were controlled by the appeals made to them by the friends of Martin and Swan son. Roger q. Mills of Texas for Twenty years a member of the House of representatives of the United states and for a term of six years of the Senate a statesman of the old order whose distinguished ability and lofty patriotism won for him a place among the most honoured of the nation passed away this week. But great As was the reputation he won for himself As a Tariff expert democratic Leader and speaker in great National campaigns so evanescent is Fame in late years he had been almost forgotten. Great advantage would accrue to the nation however As says the Richmond virginian a if we should keep alive the memory of his rugged honesty and patriotic service to Honor and emulate them rather than the examples of Many who have substituted other motives and methods for his ideals and principles of disinterested and constructive letter from Secretary Keller pair. Ladies gentlemen and children in behalf of on agricultural and educational association i want to thank you for your Liberal patronage of the old Keller pair just closed. The attendance even under and i be circumstances and in spite of dust and rain was simply wonderful and the kindly feelings and Good Fellowship manifested was Beautiful and worthy of All Ralbe.

We want to especially thank those who so faithfully helped us by their Many Nice exhibits and efforts along other line to make the fair a Success As a whole the school children the athletes the speakers the candidates. The educational exhibits were Fine and elicited much Praise and admiration the fast runners and High jumpers among the Young men were also admired and praised the speeches by messes. Mcmaster of new York and Eggleston of Richmond were truly inspiring and up lifting to our Public school teachers children and to All who heard them. The music and athletic medal speeches by messes. Blackstone and Mapp were Well timed and appropriately delivered. But amid it All the candidates a took the cake a and did in Many ways contribute to our Success As Well As to their own a Clever Nice set of men and Well worthy of the offices they seek. The Speed trials were close and Well fought out and gentlemen of the turf were satisfied and Happy.
