Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - July 31, 1907, Big Stone Gap, Virginia Cion Stefo Stirt Crork. Accomac court House a. Saturday november 28, 189g. Entered at the Post office at Accomac c. A. A. As second class matter. The Defeated candidates for con Gress from Virginia who had threat Quad to make contests Are not Likely to be As numerous As at one time seemed probable. The republicans with speaker read at their head it is stated Uro opposed to them be cause their fear unpleasant developments. The cry fraud upon which Defeated Republican saudi dates in Virginia have heretofore relied to secure seats in Congress won t work it seems this time As they naturally had the right to expect. That being the Only argument Neces sary to be used before a partisan re publican House in the past. The Peculiar tactics and methods the Boltoc rats and their Republican allies in the late election in purchasing election judges employing Pinkerton detectives Aud tall keepers coercing employees destroying the secrecy the ballot and the various other ways in which Mark Hanna s friends were used to corrupt officials and voters wont Bear the Light and that discretion which sometimes is the better part valor causes them to desist. Stop the contests in Virginia seems to have been the order from Republican Headquarters in Washington and for the most part it is Likely to be obeyed by most the Defeated candidates and but few contests May now be expected. The surest Road to Independence for the South is to produce More at Home what it needs and buy Les from the outside. This applies especially to the agricultural and manufacturing interests Aud the Sugges tion is worthy study. The custom has been for years to buy everything from the outside Aud there has been to restriction. Everything we eat drink Aud Wear use with some exceptions is purchased either in the North East West when the same might be produced at Home at less Cost in the end. We have the raw material at our doors Aud yet instead utilizing it. We Send it away to be manufactured Aud two prices for it when it is returned. There Are very a anythings that the Farmer buys abroad that might As Well be made at Home at a great saving and the same maybe said manufactured goods. I lumber leather and Mineral wealth the South is unsurpassed yet very Little it is manufactured at Home. Why is this the above extract from an editorial in the Norfolk virginian merits the consideration especially the people the Eastern Shore. It can be truly said us that everything we eat. Drink Wear with some exceptions is bought elsewhere and Many things which we attempt to Supply ourselves with Are not made in sufficient quantities to meet our needs. We manufacture nothing and 6end away the surplus that we get for our Staple crops to buy our Hay Corn pork and Many other things which not Only could be produced Here but at less Cost and Bette Quality than it can be by those from whom we Purchase it. Why is this we can ask with the virginian. Times Are hard with us but do we not help to make them so by re lying Only one two crops and taking All that to buy Neces Saries which we could Supply our selves with at Home it certainly look to us that a step would be taken in the right direction to raise fewer potatoes that won t sell and More something else that we Are compelled to have and must buy. The democrats who strayed away from the democratic fold in the late election with the expectation getting something under the Republican administration it seems will be disappointed. Already notice has been served upon them that no in ter loping Democrat need expect any thing by leading republicans the District Columbia in the Case . Woodward chairman the inaugural a storm indignation having been caused by the place being Given to him As a re. Ward for his desertion that he will be compelled to retire accept a subordinate place the committee put no one guard for a share in the Republican flesh pots but vet Erans in the Republican service seems to be the slogan the old members the g. O. P. And the Virginia Boltoc rats who left their party for that purpose will perhaps heed the warning. The republicans want the offices and will have them and it is Folly to believe otherwise. Whatever else May happen in Virginia politics one thing can be predicted with Little risk and that is the re election Hon. John w. Daniel to the United state Senate says sex senator Marshall Mccormick Berryville Virginia i do not think he continued that there is the slightest doubt that senator Daniel will be chosen to succeed himself. The people Are with him regardless what he thinks about Silver anything else. They know him to be a True Man and sincere in his advocacy All Public the Norfolk virginian was thirty two years old last sunday and in noting the fact we would be ungrateful if we did not acknowledge with thanks the pleasure it daily gives us Aud cordially commend it to the favor our readers. It deserves the generous patronage the pub Public which in making the announcement its age it so gracefully acknowledges it now enjoys and which it must continue to receive from virginians both because its Merit As a reliable newspaper and its Earnest Devotion under All circumstances to their interests. Meeting state Board can Vassers. Irregularities in declared Jones in Accomac not counted. The state Board canvassers met in the office the Secretary the Commonwealth at noon monday and went Over the returns from the re cent congressional election in Vir Ginia. A greater part monday was de voted to the consideration a Peti tion filed with the Board by Edgar Allan and colonel James d. Brady As counsel for . Jacob Yost Republican candidate for Congress in the tenth District praying that the 1,21 2 votes cast in Buckingham county for Jacob Yost according to the original returns certified to the Board by the clerk the county court should be put Down As for Yost As the name appeared upon the official ballot. A statement in the nature in amended certificate was sent in by clerk Forbes the county court Buckingham setting Forth that these returns were in error As the entire vote the county was for Yost save that at Glenmore pre pinot where ninety nine ballots were cast for Jake yo6t. This state ment was corroborated by another signed by the live commissioners election the county. The canvassing Board considered All these facts but decided after careful deliberation that the vote that county would have to been tired in accordance with the original returns which meant that Hon. H. D. Flood the democratic candidate for Congress in the tenth District would receive the certificate elec tion. Immediately upon the taking this action . Yost and his counsel served notice that application would be made to the supreme court appeals for a mandamus compelling the Board to count the votes in question for Yost. Going Over the returns. The Board canvassers met promptly at noon and was in session until after 3 clock. There were present governor Ferrall chair Inan. Secretary the common wealth Joseph t. Lawless auditor Morton Marye Ami treasurer a. A. Harman . Attorney tineral Scott was detained by sickness. A number leading republicans were hand Early. Among them were colonel James 1. Brady . Jacob Yost . Tid Gur Allan . Morgan treat . Richard a. Wise Defeated candidate for Congress in the second District and messes. Edgar Allan jr., Joseph Brady and Lee Bland. Of the prominent democrats who were in attendance at one time another during the session were hons. W. A. Young congressman elect in the second District Sidney p. Epes the fourth District and Claude a. Swanson the fifth District Francis r. Lassiter Petersburg who was looking after the interests . Epes and others. Or. Flood was in the City but As he did not care to raise the ques tion about the Buckingham vote upon a technicality he did not go to the Capitol at All during the Day. As soon As the Board had assembled the body agreed to take up the returns from the congressional districts calling the tenth District first. Or. Edgar Allan asked the privilege appearing before the Board and presented the petition . Yost asking that the entire vote cast for Yost and Jake Yost in Buck Ingham county be placed in the column As cast for Yost setting Forth that although the original returns which were certified by p. A. Forbes clerk the county court Buckingham showed that Jacob Yost received 1,272 votes the real facts were that this was a error and that the returns should have Given Yost 1,173, and Jake Yost 99. Or. Allan submitted the statements the county clerk which had been obtained by . Yost certifying to these facts and the election commissioners the county corroborating clerk Forbes s state ment. In the statement clerk Forbes he said i prepared the abstract votes for members Congress in Buckingham county which was for warded to the Secretary the Commonwealth in which no votes Are recorded As cast for Yost but 1,272 Are recorded for Jacob Yost. I hereby certify that said designation Jacob Yost instead Yost was an error and not in accordance with the facts appearing upon the poll books from the precincts the this communication also contained what purports to be a real abstract the votes cast in Buckingham county. Appended to this was the statement signed by the five com missioners . S. R. Twyman c. L. Davis is. B. Dowdy Robert b. Agee and Luther f. Light foot. The question argued. Brief remarks were made by messes. Allan and Yost in behalf the petition who argued that it was perfectly Plain that the votes cast for Yost and Jake Yost in bucking Ham were intended for the Republican candidate. The action the Board two years ago when the same thing occurred in . Yost s vote in Plu Vanna county and when the Board constituted As it is now counted the vote for Yost was incidentally referred to. After hearing the argument the Board went into secret session and fully considered the matter. By a vote 3 to 1 it was decided to reject the petition and enter the votes As shown by the original returns. It is understood that governor Ferrall dissented the ground that the petition should be admitted As evidence to show How the certificate should really have been made out. The Law in the Case. The Law relied upon by the Board to govern their action in this matter was 64th Maine 593 126th Massachusetts 282 american and English encyclopedia Law volume a Paine elections state can Vassers county canvassers with out statutory authority cannot count for the same person votes re turned As having been cast for a per son having a Christian name and a person having an initial letter to indicate his Christian name nor can such Board Bear evidence Algunde the returns themselves to show that such persons Are one and the this action the part the Board gave the certificate election As congressman for the tenth District to Hon h. D. Flood the figures be ing flood 10.047 Yost 14,922 Jacob Yost 1,272 flood s plurality 1,123. Had the Buckingham vote been put Down in the Yost column Yost would have been declared elected by 144 plurality. Effect in other districts. There were similar irregularities in the returns from almost every District in the state. The entire demo cratic vote for congressman in Accomac was sent in accredited to William a. Jones while the official ballot bore the name w. A. Jones. This took 3,298 from congressman Jones vote but even this Large num ber was not sufficient to change the result. In the same District Walter b. Tyler lost his Fredericksburg vote 409, because the fact that the returns were sent in in the name w. B. Tyler. The ninth District returns were in such irregular shape As to Cut the vote for general Walker Aud judge Williams All to pieces. The whole vote in Smith county was thrown away rather Given.1,429 to Samuel w. Will Zanib and 1,579 to James a. 1,-121 to s. W. Williams and 1,579 to A. Walker. General Walker also lost the following counties in the same Way Blaud 174 Buchanan c89 Giles 10 and the City Bristol 395. Judge Williams lost 531 in Bland and 1,075 in Giles county. General Walker s plurality upon which the certificate election is awarded to him is 1.178. The democratic plurality in Vir Ginia is about 20,001, but these figures will Only be reached by a few the democratic mond dispatch. Education at the South. A contemporary in discussing the Progress education in the South gives some exceedingly interesting and significant statistics bearing upon the , indeed that Are calculated to Surprise even our own people and which certainly Are a nut to crack for our Northern friends who Delight to Prate about Southern igbo race. After stating that while in the last Twenty years the South has increased 54 per cent in population she has increased 130 per cent in her school enrolment our authority says that one in five the population attends school a higher proportion than in any coun try Europe except Saxony that the value school property in creased in the South Between 1874 and 1894 from $1.000,000 to $51,000.000, and that the average value a schoolhouse had risen in that time from $373 to $643. While it adds in 1874, the Southern College students in s Uther colleges numbered 11,103. In 1894 the number was 35,304. In the eighteen years preceding 1891 there was spent from Public taxes the schools $320,000,000, which $80, 000,000 went to the education the negroes. Ninety five per cent the whole sum is paid by the White tax payers. In every Hundred Whites Twenty three Are enrolled in the schools and Nineteen every Hun dred coloured. In 1874 there were enrolled 571,500 coloured and 1,837,139 White children in 1894 the figures were 1,124,w95 coloured and 3,835.593 White. And yet we hear continually from Northern neg Rophile sources wails Over the Down trodden condition the negroes the South. The world does not show a parallel to what the Southern Whites have done for the negro race since the War. Nor is that All. The Southern negro would be still better off had he been delivered from the tender mercies his false nothern Dis Patch. A monster revival. New York november 19.More than a Hundred ministers in greater new York who have been interested in the Moody and Sanky meetings decided to Day to use their Elt Orts to bring about the greatest evangelical Awakening this City has Ever known. A Call will be issued at once to All the ministers in the City to open the doors their churches every night for revival services. It is expected that there will be More than 500 meetings a night Aud that the result will be the most extraordinary modern times. It is hoped to arouse not Only the great Metropolis but to have the movement radiate in every direction. It is hoped that it will join with that now in Progress in Philadelphia and sweep Over the whole country. Every denomination and nearly every prominent pastor in Brooklyn and new York Are interested in this movement. Or. Moody has said that the time is Ripe for it. Rev. Or. Wil Bur Chapman who preached in . Moody s place to Day and who is among the first two three evangelists in this country has said so. This feeling is Boru the Moody meetings in this City. Or. Moody has said that they have been among the most remarkable in his experience. Or. Curry the Flag. Raleigh n. A november 20 . J. L. M. Curry sex minister to Spain and trustee the Peabody and Slater funds made a address yesterday before the coloured students Shaw University Here in which he used this rather startling language i Don t believe much in the idea having the United states hag Over our schools. I d like to know what the United states government has done for our Public schools in North Carolina to demand that the Flag should hang Over them. It never gave a cent to North Carolina schools except to the agricultural and mechanical colleges. It is a deception and a fraud to put the hag there. It is the state that gives you Educa speaking the negro he said i never could understand Why the negro population remains so compact in the South instead becoming scattered All Over the Union. The Northern men freed the negro. Why is it the negro does not go North to be with his friends instead stay ing in the South among hi6 enemies As to suffrage. Or. Curry said i Don t believe a Man who cannot read his ballot ought to be allowed to put it into the applause among the negro students Mckinley will probably get one vote from Virginia. Richmond a. November 24.the democrats will probably lose one elector in Virginia. Some the returns 6ent in for Charles m. Wal lace jr., the candidate from the Richmond District left off the word "jr.," and others simply gave his name As a. M. James w. Marshall another demo cratic candidate came very near being Defeated by the same technicality. Y esterday the Board made the ruling in the Case flood and Yost candidates for Congress in the tenth District and by not counting for the Republican nominee Democrat was elected. The Board has not issued certificates to the electors. There is yet a Point to be decided. Five republicans got More votes re turned than Charles m. Wallace jr., and All got the same number. It is to be settled to whom the certificate Hall go. Should the court appeals order votes returned for Jacob Yost to be counted for the Republican nominee the same Rule presumably will apply to the electors. Lee and the Cabinet. Fredericksburg va., november 20.concerning the suggestion that has been going the rounds the Eress that Consul general fit Hughee be offered a place in major Mckinley s Cabinet general Lee is quoted As saying he had no idea that . Mckinley would put any demo crat in his Cabinet that in his family councils a Democrat would be out place and that major Mckinley would draw the line Here in the selection his Cabinet a6 he had the right to do and ought to do. General Lee added that he has not renounced his allegiance to the democratic party and is a Democrat and proposes to remain a Democrat everywhere and at All times. General kens.

The Quantity bananas shipped from the West indies to the United states amounts annually to Between a l 0,000 and 14,000.000 Bunches valued at Over $20,000,000.
