Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - June 5, 1907, Big Stone Gap, Virginia Enterprise. Accomac court House a. Saturday september 2g, 1s96. Entered at the Post office at Accomac 0. A. A. As second class matter. National democratic ticket for president William j. Bryan of Nebraska. For vice president Arthur Sewall of Maine. For Congress we. A. Jones. The boy orator a term applied to Bryan by republicans and their bolting democratic allies in their efforts to belittle him continues to speak daily and to stir the hearts of the people As no political speaker in this country of late years has Ever done. is attracting crowds to listen to him such As no Man Ever had before and is received an ova tion everywhere he goes. The re publicans say that Idle curiosity draws the people to him. But they cannot explain the storm of enthusiasm with which he is receiving everywhere. They used to say that the strength of his speeches was in his Catchy phrases but now common honesty compels them to admit that there is something new and striking in every speech he makes. The truth is he is a Man of preeminent ability believes in the Justice of the cause for which he is fighting and the people realizing the fight which he is making for them believe in him and Are willing to Trust him As their next president and so much so that we do not believe that All the Mil Lions which Wall Street is contrib uting to buy their votes and Debauch them will Avail anything. Democrats of Accomac be not deceived by men who say that they Are True democrats and who Tell you in the same breath that they want the republicans candidate for presi Dent elected. There is but one demo cratic candidate for president and he was nominated at Chicago and his name is William Jennings Bryan. Any other candidate is a candidate and thus aptly described by the Richmond dispatch it is a candidate who knows that he is wearing the livery of the demo cratic party to serve its enemies is a pretended Democrat. It is a candidate who seeks to toll democrats into the Republican Camp. Itis a Democrat in one word who has deserted his colors and is not Satis fied with having done so but seeks to Decoy True democrats into a place where they will inevitably lose their standing in the National democratic party. It is a Democrat who feels and knows that he is acting a Par which is totally unbecoming him or any other real if you want a Democrat in other words for your next president you will vote for you want a Republican for president you will vote for Mckinley or Palmer the nominee of the assistant Republican ticket. Hon. F. Bartine of Chicago has made Public a letter addressed by him to major Mckinley in which he reminds him that in the year 1878, As a member of the House of representatives he voted for the famous Bland Bill providing for the unrestricted coinage of Silver at the ratio of 10 to 1 and requests from him a Public statement As he now Al Leges that the advocates of Silver coinage Are deficient in personal integrity whether or not the Bland Bill was a dishonest measure. has not answered and such the inconsistency of the average Gold Bug whether Democrat or Republican. His heart and head tells him As it did Mckinley that free coinage is right until he is deceived into believing that he has common cause with the people of Wall Street because he happens to possess a Little of this world s goods or wants them to help him to an office. The Cape Charles headlight a paper that is supporting the ticket of the bolting democrats says that a Rumor is afloat that or. Thomas m. Scott came near being mobbed at Cashville last week for making a sound Money speech there. Now there is not one word of truth in this Rumor. It is a Gross and in excusable slander on the Good peo ple of Cashville and its Vicinity. They Are Law abiding High minded honorable people. How the report originated we can t for the life of us imagine but it looks As if it were a Clumsy device to turn sympathy for a set of men who Are trying to in Duce democrats to desert their party in this great crisis of our history. The cry of hard times is Beard in every Section of our country and everybody concedes that any change in the government of the affairs of our country is desirable. Elect Mckinley and there will be no change because the Senate and perhaps the House would be against him and would not permit it. Elect Bryan and a change is assured with almost absolute certainty of Relief. Bryan at Dover Del. Or. Bryan democratic candidate for president in his speech at Dover Del., last monday said in part now i want to talk to you awhile about our financial condition. If things Are Good then there Rea son Why we a Duld make any change in legislation. If our present Condi tion is satisfactory then we ought to leave it alone and not make a change no one can advocate any kind of remedial legislation except on the theory that there is something that needs remedy. Our opponents confess the condition and when i Tell you that you cannot remedy the present condition except by financial Legisla tion our opponents say that the trouble is in the Tariff question and that if we could just have More Tariff then times would get Good again. M Kinley against himself. I want to read you an extract from a speech made on last saturday by the Republican candidate for president at Canton. said under the Republican protective policy we enjoyed for More than thirty year6 the most marvellous Prosperity that has Ever been Given to any nation of the world. We not Only had individual Prosperity but we. Had National now there is a statement made within a week by the presidential candidate on the Republican ticket pointing Back for thirty years from 1sc0 to 1800, and telling the people that during that period we enjoyed the most marvellous Prosperity of any nation in the world and that we bad both individual Prosperity and National Prosperity. I want to show you by this same witness very Testi Mony Given six years ago that after thirty years of this kind of policy the Farmers of this country were not prosperous. If you will take the re port filed with the Mckinley Bill on the itch of april 1890, you will find the words which i wish to quote that there is widespread depression in this Industry to Day cannot be doubted speaking of agriculture. That is what the presidential Candi Date said when he deliberately wrote the report and filed it with his pro posed legislation. That there is widespread depression in this Indus try to Day cannot be doubted applause agricultural depression. Again in that same report he said one of the chief complaints now prevalent among our Farmers is that they can get no Price for their crops at All commensurate to the labor and capital invested in their production that is what he said after thirty years of the kind of pol icy which the candidate of the re publican party says will bring you Prosperity. Let me read again we have not believed that the people already suffering from Low prices can or will be satisfied with legislation which will result in lower prices. No country Ever suffered when prices were fairly remunerative in every Field of labor after thirty years of that kind of policy he tells you that the people were suffering from Low prices and that no country Ever suffered when prices were fairly remunerative in every Field of labor. Now let me read to you again what he says in this same report this great Indus try speaking of agriculture is fore most in magnitude and importance in our country. Its Success and Prosperity Are vital to the nation. No Prosperity is possible to other Indus tries if agriculture languish that is what he said in 1s90.that there was depression in agriculture after thirty years of his Tariff policy and that without Prosperity among the other industries of the country. Let me read you just one other extract the depression in agriculture is not confined to the United states. The reports of the agricultural depart great Britain France and Germany Are suffering in a larger degree than the Farmers of the United states there he is telling that there is depression in agriculture and giving the of three prominent agricultural nations of the old world and telling us that that Agri cultural depression is even More marked Over there than it is Here. I want you to remember that when you read in the paper that he said that for thirty years we had such marvellous Prosperity in this coun try. Great applause Bismarck on Silver. Now my friends i have quoted you that he said that there was de pression in agriculture in Germany. I want to read you what Prince Bis Marck says about the condition of affairs in Germany. Our opponents Are in the habit of telling us that All the civilized nations Are in favor of the Gold Standard. The germans who live in this country Point wit just Pride to the greatness of this illustrious German Prince Bismarck. Let me read you what he has said within a few weeks in regard to bimetal ism and then see whether he testifies that the Gold Standard has been a Good thing for Germany applause in a letter written to governor Culberson of Texas and dated on the 24th of August 1s96, Prince Bis Marck said your esteemed favor of july 1st has been duly received. I have always had a predilection forbid Metallis but i would not while in office claim my views of the mat ter to be infallibly True when advanced against the views of experts. I hold to this very hour that it would be advisable to bring about Between the nations chiefly engaged in the world s Commerce a Mutual agree ment in favor of the establishment of bimetal ism if the Gold Standard had been a Blessing to Germany Why would he not say that it was better to keep the Gold Standard instead of getting rid of the Gold Standard and substituting the double Standard by International agreement. " considered from a commercial and Industrial standpoint Prince Bismarck continues the United states Are Freer by far in their move ments than any nation in Europe and hence if the people of the United states should find it compatible with their interests to take independent1 action in the direction of bimetal list i cannot but believe that such action would exert a most salutary influence upon the consummation of International agreement and the coming into this league of every european nation our ability. We have those among our people who have said that some other nation must take the Lead. Prince Bismarck says that the people of the United states Are Freer by far in their movements than the nations of Europe. Can it be that this great German statesman has a higher con caption of the ability of the people of the United states than the tories who Are not willing to do anything until they ask the consent of other nations great applause and cheer ing not Only does Prince Bismarck say that we Are Freer to take action than other nations but he says if we act it will exert a most salutary effect on the consummation of International agreement and the com ing into the league of every european nation. Bismarck testifies first that the Gold Standard is the policy in Germany and he wants bimetal ism restored. Be testifies second that the United states is in the Best Posi tion of All the states to take the Lead. testifies third that if this nation take the Lead it will have a salutary influence not in but in bringing the other nation of Europe into an International agreement. I desire that you will always remember this Testi Mony coming from so distinguished an author. Farmers and non producers. Let me Call your attention to an other thing which Prince Bismarck said. Our opponents Tell us that we Are arraying one class against an other. Let me show you what Prince Bismarck has said in regard to classes on questions which concern agricultural depression. A Little More than a year ago he was quoted As saying to a Farmer audience in Germany that the Farmers must stand together and must protect themselves from the drones of society which produce nothing but Laws. Great applause remember the significance of those the Farmers should stand together and protect themselves from the drones of society who produce nothing but Laws. Great applause my friends Divide society into two classes. On the one Side put the non producers and on the other Side put the producers of wealth and you will find that in this country the majority of the Laws Are made by the non producers instead of the producers of wealth and just As Long As the non producers make the Laws just so Long it will be More profitable to the non producer of wealth. Bismarck tried to arouse the Farmers of Germany to throw out these drones and take charge of legislation themselves. I suppose they will Call Bismarck an agitator. Laughter and applause i suppose they will say that he ought not to array one class of society against another. Of course i do not know How drones feel in a Bee hive but if drones could talk and make speeches i will bet that you could not Tell one of their speeches from the speeches made by the Heads of those great trusts who Call every body anarchists who do not believe with them. A Phibee i will venture that if a drone could talk and write and express his ideas in language there is not a member of a Syndicate that has been beating this govern ment but who could take the drone s speech and use it As his own without being accused of plagiarism. Great applause my friends that is the Only class Issue that we raise and if to say the people who fight the nation s Battles in time of War have a right to do the legislating in time of peace is raising class against clans then 1 am willing to be Callen an agitator my friends great applause and cheers Hamia s methods to capture the country. Or. R. C. Bell a prominent citizen of Legrange Indiana received the following letter from j. F. Forsythe of Wall Street is. Y., which As a Good Democrat he immediately made Public the people West should be impressed with the fact that our people Here can take care of themselves come what May. We Are concerned for Only the classes that labor whether in the factory on the rail Road or on the farms. It is costing us a great Deal of time besides several millions of dollars to teach these lessons and they should realize that we cannot constantly subscribe millions of Money at presidential elections for their cause which out Lay by agitations is constantly in creased. In talking with or. Banna recently he said he would probably need �25,000,000 from our City before the polls closed in november caused by such men As you and or. Bryan but we think that if treble the amount is really needed our generous people will Supply it to keep the ignorant people from committing political suicide. Every one at the last meeting when or. Hanna was licit Ayreen la Momiu of my. Our newspapers Are Loyal to the people they Are terribly mad How Ever at or. Bryan for his speech at Madison Square Garden and we should not be surprised if some of them indulge in violent language should 6peakhere again. Or. Hanna has seen some of the most influential owners of these papers since however and we think they will still be lenient. Our efforts will be toward kindness to our fellow men. We invite you with All kind Ness and with Well wishes personally trusting you May assist in quieting your people. We Are willing to Aid you financially if necessary and Are perfectly willing to Trust you without fear. Or. Hanna in Many cases does not allow our treasurer to pay at once he thinks guarantees Are Good until the poll shows the actual result in the town or precinct but in your Case if you will make known your actual needs for the beginning of the work providing j of agree to change your views in accordance with our other followers in your state belong ing to the honest Gold party we will Endeavor to provide you with All necessary funds. You need not answer this personally As some of or. Hanna s agents will visit your City soon and will surely Call on you. It is not our intention to have Onoue committed by letter. I assure that our work is telling in the East. Most of our manufacturers have converted their employees who Are rapidly join ing our clubs. There is not much trouble once the Way is shown Bismarck a bimetal list. Dallas Tex. September 19in a speech to night governor Culberson read the following significant correspondence Between himself and Prince Bismarck on the Money question Prince Bismarck great question of finance is now of supreme interest to the peo ple of the United states. It is presented in various forms out in a gen eral Way it May be said to be first whether the United states shall adopt the single Gold Standard or second whether they shall adopt by Metallis with both Gold and Silver As the Standard or primary Money. The argument in favor of each is Well known to you but it is particularly insisted that we should adopt the policy of bimetal ism because the Supply of Gold in the world for coinage is insufficient to meet the de Mand and because such a Standard will still further depress the values of All property. Which in your judgment is the Best policy to adopt the Gold stand Ard or bimetal ism giving your Rea sons what effect in your judgment will the immediate adoption of by Metallis by the United states have on the cause of bimetal ism in Ger Many and other great commercial nations a. Culberson governor of in reply Prince Bismarck said Friedrichs Ruhe aug. 24, 96. Honoured esteemed favor has been duly received. I hold that this is the very hour that would be advisable to bring about Between the nations chiefly engaged in the world s Commerce a Mutual agreement in favor of the establishment of bimetal list. The United states Are Freer by far in their movements than any nation of Europe and hence if the people of the United states should find it compatible with their interests to take Independent action in the direction of bimetal ism i cannot but believe that such action would exert a most salutary influence upon the consummation of International agree ment. an unprecedented year s work by the life Karins service. There is no department of the pub Lic service wherein the great protect ing Arm of the government is seen Tobe so plainly stretched out in the in Terest of imperilled humanity a in the life saving service. Asa necessary adjunct to the Lighthouse service both Are placed in the same depart ment under the direct control of the Secretary of the Treasury. Dotting the dangerous Atlantic coast from Maine to Texas on the Pacific from Seattle to san Diego and even on the great Inland lakes Are the pretty Little life saving stations the abode of the Brave Fellows who risk danger even death in the service of their endangered fellow men. In these houses is also the apparatus invented by the Beneficent geniuses for the purpose of Render ing somewhat safer the work of Rescue. There is the great surf boat which is launched through the break ers to reach a disabled ship the 6mall two wheeled Cannon used to fire a shot line from the Shore to ship and the life car which May be hauled Between the ship and the Shore when it is impossible to launch the surf boat. The men on the stations Are on duty Only during that portion of the season when the coast is swept by sudden and violent storms that sweep up from the West indies wreaking disaster upon shipping and were it not for the foresight of the govern ment and the Fidelity of the Brave coast guards Many More lives would be lost every year than is now the Case. The service has just issued a report of its operations during the past fiscal year and it is a highly inter Esting volume. There Are 251 stations in All included in twelve districts. The number of disasters to vessels within the scope of possible Aid from the stations was 483. Aboard these vessels were 5,402 persons but Twenty of whom perished. Thin is a wonderful and highly flattering commen tary upon the value of the service. The total value of the property involved in these disasters was Slu 647,235. Of this amount $0,145,085 was saved to the owners the property loss being Only about ten per cent. The number of vessels totally lost was 73. During the year s03 shipwrecked persons were cared for at the stations near where the wrecks occurred and they were sometimes detained at the stations for Days at a time. In addition to those saved from the imperilled vessels 114 persons were rescued by sur men without whose assistance they would undoubtedly have been drowned. Twenty four of these persons had fallen from piers wharves Etc. Fourteen were exhausted swimmers three were intoxicated nine were adrift on ice hoes in Lake Michigan eleven were caught by rising tides Aud one was an aeronaut who fell from his balloon into Lake Ontario. In 5g0 instances stranded vessels were worked off and safely piloted away and 24 ships in danger of going ashore were warned Oil by the lights of the Beach patrol. During the year 8111 lives were saved in the surf boat 131 were taken off in the life car and 100 were in such imminent danger that it was necessary to take them off in the breeches buoy. These tuli.-1 is Are emphatic in support of the Wisdom of maintain ing a service that is a Boon to humanity regardless of nationality or what not. Pusin rss Man and Geld. It is easy to understand Why men with immense fortunes and fixed in comes should be in favor of the Gold Standard. They have plenty of Money and the Gold Standard in drunk it constantly value of the Dollar while it reduces the value of everything that Money will buy. But Why should any manufacturer merchant or other business Man whose welfare is dependent on the general Prosperity Side with the plutocracy when Money is hard to get prices come Down purchasers grow scarce and at the same time interest rises. As or. Bryan Points out the Busi Ness Man makes his Money not from the men from whom he borrows but from the men to whom he Sells his goods. The shopkeepers of new York for example would be immeasurably More benefited by a Rise of 10 per cent in the wages of the working men of the City than by the doubling of the pile of every millionaire in the United states. A Money system that locks up capital hits the shopkeeper because it hits his customers. The Gold Standard gives us Money that it is easy to Corner and which it does not pay to borrow for business Pur poses because it is steadily appreciating in value. The Man who Bor rows that kind of Money to turn it Over gets turned Over himself for being under the necessity of paying Back dollars Worth More than those that were Lent him his profits disappear in the transaction. Though he May not know what strikes him heis Sand bagged by the Gold Standard. The shopkeepers the manufacturers the great mass of business men who Are not loaded Down with wealth like the Carnegie Huntington and morgans and others of the class who Are so anxious for the election of Mckinley As to be willing to pay handsomely for the Blessing Are Allin the same boat with the men who work for wages either with their hands or Heads. Free coinage by a great and Opu Lent country such As the United states is would bring Gold Down and Send Silver up equalize their value and give us a currency that would adjust itself automatically to the expanding needs of expanding business. It would raise prices profits and wages and we should have a kind of Money that besides being really honest because stable in its measuring Power could not be cornered by the patriotic gentlemen whose hearts Are wrung lest the National credit and their gains May be impaired. Rising markets employed labor and Security against the schemes of Money Corner ers Are desired by Ever business Man who is Able to think but these we cannot have under the Gold Standar new York journal.
