Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - July 31, 1907, Big Stone Gap, Virginia In�itsui1 . Accomac court House a. Saturday november 28, 189g. Entered at tie Post office at Accomac c. A. Va., As second class matter. The Defeated candidates for Congress from Virginia who had threat Quad to make contests Are not Likely to he As numerous As at one time seemed probable. The republicans with speaker rend at their head it is stated Are opposed to them be cause of their fear of unpleasant developments. The cry of fraud upon which Defeated Republican candidates 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 uleces sary to be used before a partisan Republican House in the past. The Peculiar tactics and methods of the Boltoc rats and their Republican allies in the late election in purchasing election judges employing Pinkerton detectives and tall keepers coercing employees destroying the secrecy of the ballot and the various other ways in which Mark Hanna s friends were used to corrupt officials and voters won t Bear the Light and that discretion which sometimes is the better part of 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 of 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 of what it needs and buy less from the outside. This applies especially to the agricultural and manufacturing interests and the suggestion is worthy of study. The custom Lias been for years to buy everything from the outside and there Lias been to restriction. Everything we eat. Drink and Wear or use with some exceptions is purchased either in the North East or West when the same might be produced at Home at less Cost in the end. We have the raw material at our doors and yet instead of utilizing it. We Send it away to be manufactured and two prices for it when it is returned. There Are very Many things that the Farmer buys abroad that might As Well be made at Home at u great saving and the same May be said of manufactured goods in lumber leather and Mineral wealth the South is unsurpassed yet very Little of it is manufactured at Home. Why is this the above extract from an editorial in the Norfolk virginian merits the consideration especially of the people of the Eastern Shore. It can be truly said of us that everything we eat. Drink or 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 to thing and Send away the surplus that we get for our Staple crops to buy our Hay Corn pork and Many other tilings which not Only could be produced Here but at less Cost Yudof better Quality than it Cun 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 lying Only on one or two crops and taking All of that to buy necessaries which we could Supply ourselves 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 of 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 of getting something under the Republican administration it seems wiil be disappointed. Already notice has been served upon them that no a int eloping Democrat need expect Auy thing by leading republicans of the District of Columbia in the Case of or. Woodward chairman of the inaugural committee such a storm of 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 or accept a subordinate place on the committee put to one on guard for a share in the Republican flesh pots but veterans in the Republican service seems to be the slogan of the old members of 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. A whatever else May happen in Virginia politics one thing can be predicted with Little risk and that is the re election of Hon. John w. Daniel to the United state Senate a says sex senator Marshall Mccormick of Berryville Virginia a i do not think a he continued a that there is the slightest doubt that senator Daniel will be chosen to succeed himself. The people Are with him regardless of what he thinks about Silver or anything else. They know him to be a True Man and sincere in his advocacy of 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 and cordially commend it to the favor of our readers. It deserves Quot the generous patronage of the pub Public which in making the announcement of its so gracefully acknowledges it now enjoys and which it must continue to receive from virginians both because of its Merit As a reliable newspaper and its Earnest Devotion under All circumstances to their interests. Mee Tiu of state b0ard01 canvassers. Irregularities in returns flood declared elected vote of Jones in Accomac not counted. The state Board of canvassers met in the office of the Secretary of the Commonwealth at noon monday and went Over the returns from the recent congressional election in Virginia. A greater part of monday was devoted to the consideration of a petition filed with the Board by Edgar Allan and colonel James d. Brady As counsel for or. Jacob Yost Republican cuu Didente for Congress in the tenth District praying that the 1,272 votes cast in Buckingham county for a Jacob Yost a according to the original returns certified to flip Board by the clerk of the county court should be put Down As for Yost As the name appeared upon the official ballot. A statement in the nature of an amended certificate was sent in by clerk Forbes of the county court of Buckingham setting Forth that these returns were in error As the entire vote of the county was for j. Yost save that at Ole More pro pinot. Where Niue to Niue ballots were cast for a Jake Quot Yost. This statement was corroborated by another signed by tie five commissioners of election of the of duty. The canvassing Board considered All these facts but decided after careful deliberation that the vote of that county would have to be entered in accordance with the original returns which i Eliut that Hon. H. D. Flood the democratic candidate for Congress in the tenth District would receive the certificate of election. Immediately upon the taking of this action or. Yost and his counsel served notice that application would be made to the supreme court of appeals for a mandamus compelling the Board to count the votes in question for j. Yost. Going Over the returns. The Board of canvassers met promptly at noon and was in session until after 5 of clock. There were present governor o Ferrall chairman. Secretary of the a Commonwealth Joseph t. Lawless auditor Morton Marye. Aud treasurer a. Harman or. Attorney general Scott was detained by sickness. A number of leading republicans were on baud Zariv. Amour pc Ithem were Colon James d. Brady or. Jacob Yost or. Taiga Allan. Or. Morgan Ireat. Or. Richard a. Wise Defeated candidate for Congress in the second District and messes. Edgar allanjr., Joseph Brady and Lee Bland. Of the Promise it democrats who were in attendance at one time or another during the session were hons. A. A. Young congressman elect in the second District Sidney p. Epes of the fourth District Ana Claude a. Swanson of the fifth District Francis r. Lassiter of Petersburg who was looking after the interests of or. Epes and others. Or. Flood was in the City but As he did not care to raise the question 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 of appearing before the Board and presented tie petition of or. Yost asking that the entire vote cast for Yost and a a 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 i. A. Forbes clerk of the county court of Buckingham showed that Quot Jacob Yost received 1,272 votes the real facts were that this was an error and that the returns should have Given Yost 1,173, and a Jake Yost 0�?~j. Or. Allan submitted tie statements of the county clerk which had been obtained by or. Yost certifying to these facts and of the election commissioners of the county corroborating clerk Forbes s state meet. In the statement of clerk of Forbes lie said �?o1 prepared the abstract of votes for members of Congress in Buckingham county which was for warded to the Secretary of the Commonwealth in which to votes Are recorded As cast for j. Yost but 1,2.2 Are recorded for Jacob y Ost. I hereby certify that said designation of Jacob Yost instead of j. Yost was an error and not in accordance with the facts appearing upon the poll books from the precincts of the this communication also contained what purports to be a real abstract of the votes cast in Buckingham county. Appended to this was the statement signed by the five com missioners of election messes. S. R. Twyman c. L. Davis it. B. Dowdy Robert b. Agee and Luther f. Light foot. The Al estion argued. Brief remarks were made by messes. Allan and Yost in behalf of the petition who argued that it was perfectly Plain that the votes cast for j. Yost and a Jake Quot Yost in bucking Ham were intended for the Republican candidate. Tie action of the Board two years ago when the same thing occurred in or. Yost s vote in Fluvanna county and when the Board constituted As it is now counted the vote for Yost wa9 incidentally referred to. After hearing the argument the Board went into secret session and fully considered tie matter. By a vote of 3 to i it was decided to reject the petition and enter the votes As shown by the original returns. It is understood that governor of Ferrall dissented on the ground that tie petition should be admitted As evidence to show How the certificate should really have been made out. The Law in the cask. The Law relied upon by the Board to govern their action in this matter was 154th Maine 51 3 120th Massachusetts 282 american and English encyclopedia of Law volume a Paine on elections a state canvassers or county canvassers without statutory authority cannot count for the same person votes returned As having been cast for a person 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 on the part of the Board gave the certificate of election in congressman for t tie Teutz District to Hon h. D. Flood Thel figures being flood 1 1.047 j. Yost 14,022 Jacob y Ost 1,272 floods plurality 1,125. Had the Buckingham vote been put Down in the j. A a Ost column y Ost would have been declared elected by 141 plurality. Effect in other districts. There were similar irregularities in the returns from almost every District in the state. The entire democratic vote for congressman in Accomac was sent in accredited to William a. Jones a while the official ballot bore the name w. A. Jones. This took 8,298 from congressman Jones vote but even this Large number was not sufficient to change the result in the same District Walter b. Tyler lost his Fredericksburg vote of 400, because of the fact that the returns were sent in in the name of w. B. Tyler. The ninth District returns were in such irregular shape As to Cut education at the Smith. A contemporary in discussing the Progress of education in tie South gives some exceedingly interesting and significant statistics bearing upon the matter statistics indeed that Are calculated to Surprise even our own people and which Cert july Are a but to crack for our Northern friends who Delight to Prate about Southern igbo race. After stating that while in the last Twenty years the sooth has increased 51 per cent in population she has increased 130 per cent in her school enrolment our authority says that one in five of the population attends school a higher proportion than in any country of Europe except. Saxony that tie value of school property increased in the South Between 1874 and 1894 from $1.900,000 to $51,000.090, Anil that the average value of a schoolhouse had risen in that time from $373 to <43. While it adds in 1874, the Southern College students in is Uther colleges numbered 11,103. In 1894 the number was 25,304. In the eighteen years preceding 1801 there was spent from Public taxes on the schools $320,000,000, of which $80,000,000 went to the education of the negroes. Ninety five per cent of the whole sum is paid by the White Tux payers. In every Hundred Whites Twenty three Are enrolled in the schools Anil Nineteen of every Hundred coloured. In 1871 there were eur rolled 571,500 coloured and 1,827,139 White children in 1894 the figures were 1,124,995 coloured and 3,835,593 White. And yet we hear continually from Nordlu re be trophile sources wails Over the Down trodden condition of the negroes of the South. The world does not show a parallel to Liat the Southern Whites have done for the negro race since the War. Nor is that All. The Southern negro would be still better off bad lie been delivered from the tender mercies of his false not Hern dispatch. The vote for general Walker Anil judge a Williams All to pieces. The whole vote in Smith county was thrown away or rather given�?1,429 to Samuel. Williams and 1,570 to James a. Kerr instead of 1,420 to s. W. Williams Aud 1,570 to j. A. Walker. General Walker also lost the following counties in the same Way Bland 474 by Clunan 080 Giles 810 and the City of Bristol 305. Judge Williams lost 531 la Blaud and 1,075 in Giles county. General Walker s plurality upon which the certificate of election is awarded to him is 1.178. The democratic plurality in Virginia is about 20,001, but Toliese figures will Only be reached by a few of the democratic dispatch. A Munster revival. New y Ork november 10.�?More than a Hundred ministers in greater new y Ork who have been interested in tie Moody and sulky meetings decided to Day to use their efforts to bring about the greatest Evaugel Eal Awakening this City Lias Ever Guowu. A Call will be issued at once to All the ministers in the City to open the doors of 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 lie the most extraordinary of modern times. It is hoped to arouse not Only the great Metropolis but to have tie movement radiate in every direction. It is hoped that it will join with that now in Progress in Philadelphia Aud sweep Over tie whole country. Every denomination and nearly every prominent pastor in Brooklyn Aud new York Are interested in this movement. Or. Moody pm said that the time is Ripe for it. Rev. Or. Evil Bur j. Chapman who preached ii or. Moody a place to Day and who is among the first two or three evangelists in this country has said so. This feeling is born of tie Moody meetings in this City. Or Moody has a Aid that they have been among the most remarkable in his experience or. Curry in the Flag. Raleigh n. C., november 20 a or. J. L. M. Curry sex minister to Spain and trustee of the pen lady and Slater funds made an address yesterday before tie coloured students of Shaw University Here in which lie used this rather startling language Quot i Don t believe much in the idea of having the United states Flag Over our schools id like to know what the United states government has done for our Buldic schools in North Carolina to demand that tie Ilag 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 hug there. It is the state that gives you speaking of the negro he said a i never could understand Why the negro population remains so compact in the South instead of 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 inst Euil of stay ing in the South among his enemies Quot As to suffrage. Or. Curry said a i done to believe a Man who cannot read his ballot ought to be allowed to put it into the applause among the negro students Mck Ruiey will probably get one vote from Virginia. Richmond a. November 24.�?the democrats will probably lose one elector in Virginia. Some of tie returns sent in for Charles m. Wallace jr., the candidate from the Richmond District left off the word �?ojr.,&Quot and others simply gave his name As a pc. M. James w. Marshall another democratic candidate came very near being Defeated by the same technicality. Yesterday the Board made tie ruling in the cabe of flood and tost 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 shall go. Should tie court of 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 tie Cabouet. Fredericksburg vu., november 20.�?concerning the suggestion that has been going the rounds of the press that Consul Genera Fitzhugh Lee be offered a place to major Mckinley a Cabinet general Lee is quoted As saying he had no idea that or. Mck Ruiey would put any Democrat in his Cabinet that in his family councils a Democrat would be out of place and that major Mckinley would draw the line Here in the selection of his Cabinet As be had the right to do and ought to do. General Lee added that he has not renounced his allegiance to tie democratic party and is a Democrat and proposes to remain a Democrat everywhere and at All times general news.
