Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - June 12, 1907, Big Stone Gap, Virginia Monk Accomac court House a. Saturday october 3,189c. Entered at the Post office at Accomac c. H., va., 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 political speaking at Accomac c. Last monday demonstrated to the satisfaction of everyone present that there was a distinction without a difference Between republicanism and the Gold Bug democracy which sex governor Cameron was Here to represent or. Cameron occupied a Republican platform on the occasion spoke to a Republican audience and was vociferously applauded by it from Start to finish of his speech. That or. Cameron was a satisfactory substitute for the Republican speaker col. John Popham who was on hand to address the republicans no one will Republican will deny. Or. Popham indeed was heard to congratulate himself that he had or. Cameron on hand to speak for him and thereby give him the Opportunity of enjoying himself in another no one of course who heard or. Cameron could be Lieve otherwise than he was Here to promote the interests of republicanism. The republicans at least so understood it and no Democrat ought to be fooled by the Flimsy arguments presented by him in the interest of the Palmer Buckner combination. Sex governor Cameron in his speech at Accomac c. H., last Day made the statement that the Farmers would be benefited by the free coinage of Silver and no one Democrat or Republican denies that such would be the Case. The truth is so Patent that the Farmer needs More Money and must have it if lie would Prosper that Boss Reed sex president Harrison bolter Democrat Cockran everybody in fact has to admit is it possible that there is a Farmer so dead to his own interest that he will not vote with the Only party that promises it by the free coinage of Silver at the ratio of 16 to 1? Stop the cry of hard times or vote the Only Way by which you Are told you can get better times. Our brother the editor of the headlight quotes scripture this week and Calls the Especial attention of the editor of this paper to same. We hardly see the application but As the Captain is evidently very sick at this time in giving Aid and Comfort to the enemy of the Best interests of Vir Ginia we Are reminded of an other quotation which if not scriptural might fit his Case at present Viz when the Devil got sick the Devil a Monk would be when the Devil got Well a Devil of a Monk was the aptness of the Captain s scriptural quotations is Well in keep ing with his arguments in reference to the Gold Standard. F fifty thousand voters stood out in the rain for two hours in new York last tuesday night to Welcome or. Bryan to tammany Hall. Was it Idle curiosity As the republicans would have us believe ? they May Call it by whatever name they like but it will be hard to convince the voters of the country that they acted As they did for the fun there was in it. The demonstration there like that in every part of the country where or. Bryan Speaks showed that the american people Are stirred As never before and goes very far to convince everyone who is not too extreme a partisan that or. Bryan will be the next president of the United states. Bryan continues to speak to tens of thousands of people Mckinley to those whom the rail roads Are hauling free to Canton. The one is the representative of the people and the people recognizing him As there representative always 6eem ready rain or Welcome him and do him other a creature of combines trusts and monopolists Only receives and Speaks to those that the Money Sharks Send to him. Which do you prefer the representative of the people or of the millionaires the Alexandria Gazette remarks that that a Virginia Democrat who contemplates deserting his party now when it has a Chance to elect a real democratic president should re collect that or. Mckinley s chief advisers Are sex senator Edmonds who said the statute prohibiting sex con federates from holding commissions in the United states Side was Righta senator Chandler who stole the vote of Florida in 1890, and senator Lodge who is the putative father of the Force Bill. The country from Florida to Canada was swept by a Cyclone last tuesday and much damage was done to prop erty especially in some of the Southern states. The loss in the country is estimated at Over $1,500,000. Richmond seems to have suffered More than any other damage there being put at $200,000 or or More. Very Little loss of life is reported. Testimony that cannot be disputed. What the president of the Republic of Mexico has to say As to free Silver. President Diaz of the Republic of Mexico writes to the editor of the new York journal As follows i do not. Care to discuss the effect of the Silver coinage on the material interests of Mexico with a View to influencing the result of the coming National election in the United states. Such course on my part would be wholly improper considering the Friendly and peaceful relations exist ing Between the United states and Mexico. The present political Issue in the former country is the question of the Money Standard and i do not wish to be regarded As in any Wise attempting to affect the outcome. I can give the facts relative to exist ing industries and the establishment of new ones in Mexico under our financial system and each May draw his own conclusions As to the causes which have produced such awaken ing Lin commercial and. Industrial affairs. Ocular demonstrations of the vast development May be found by visiting the Cotton and Woollen Mills in our various cities. Some Are old others recently opened. Our paper Mills and their output also furnish evidence of our material Prosperity. Until a comparatively recent period All the pulp used in the manufacture of paper in this country was imported and the paper Only was made in Mexico now the pulp and everything that enters into the composition of the paper is made Here. The depart ments of the government will furnish the exact data and statistics showing the growth of Domestic manufactures and Commerce. Growth of Mexico s commercial interest. While our material interest have increased steadily and healthfully for the last Twenty years since the close of the Indian mints and the repeal of the Sherman Law so called in the United states the growth of Mexico s commercial and Industrial interest has been particularly marked. The consequent appreciation in the Price of Gold and the increase in Exchange Between Mexico and the Gold Standard countries at once operated to reduce importations and stimulate Home manufactures. The added Price of Exchange was in effect an addition to the Tariff. The importer added to the original Cost the duty and Cost of Exchange. Our Cotton and Woollen Mills already in operation were obliged to enlarge their capacity and new ones were established. The number of opera Tives necessarily had to be greatly increased. To show the falling off in the con sumption of foreign merchandise it May be said that the year prior to the increase of foreign Exchange on Silver our customs collections at the ports of entry amounted to $22,000, 000. The next year they were $14, 000,000. In the fiscal year ending in 1s70 our importations exceeded $25, 000,000. In the fiscal year ending in 1ss5 they were slightly in excess of$34,000,000. On the other hand our exportation increased. In 1s90-91 they amounted to $03,000,000, and in 18s4-95 to $90,000,000. There was nothing in the nature of commercial panic consequent upon the Sharp Advance in Silver Exchange. Bank and business failures rare in Mexico. Our merchants Are conservative and careful and Bank and business failures Are happily rare in Mexico under any circumstances. As to wages and the condition of Labouring men considering the nature of work and classes of Industry they com pare favourably with those of other countries. The demand for skilled labor has grown with the great increase of number of Mills and manufactories. The demand in All branches of labor is Strong. The added Exchange has not impaired the value of our Dollar As applied to the Purchase of articles of Home manufacture. Its buying Power is unchanged in this respect and prices for Domestic merchandise and produce vary Only according to the Supply and the demand. Heavy investments of foreign Cap ital in mexican enterprises have been made since the appreciation of Gold elsewhere. There is another Point of View. The foreign debt of the country is payable in Gold. The duties on imported merchandise Are collected in Silver or on that basis. The High rate of Exchange together with the decrease in our customs collections before alluded to have caused a considerable shrinkage in this source of Revenue. Indiana is for Bryan. A special correspondent of the at Lanta Constitution writing from Indianapolis says Indiana May be put Down As absolutely Safe for the Bryan column. Reports received at democratic Headquarters from All but a half dozen counties of the state show that the inroads made by the Indianapolis convention have been very slight and that they have been More than offset by the votes democrats will get from the Republican ranks and from the labor element which is so Strong in the cities and even Small towns of in Diana. The action of the populist com Mittee in preventing fusion has proved a Boomerang. The disclosures which show that Mark Hanna s Money played an important part in the result Are driving those voters who acted with the populists in 1892 and 1894 into democratic ranks. There is no state in the Union where there is greater proportion of Independent voters than is found Here in Indiana. It has been the Pivotal state in Many elections be cause a Large number of its voters have been Independent going first with one party and then with the other. It is this Independent vote which decides the result in Indiana beyond question and the greater pro portion of this Independent vote comes from the ranks of labor. In no state in the Union is labor stronger or better organized. It is True that Here in the Hoosier state Are Many manufacturers and other employers of labor who leave no Stone unturned to Force their employees to obey their wishes when it comes to the ballot Box but it is also True that in no state Are the efforts of the employer class of less who he changed. On june 15tb, 1887, general Buck Ner then a candidate for governor said in his speech at Lexington bin speaking of the Republican party it violated its duty to the people by abrogating the contract of the bondholders to receive their pay in the currency of the country and gave them Gold and it then de monetized Silver in order to make Gold More valuable and further enrich the capitalist at the expense of the peo subsequently he realized about a million dollars from Chicago property left him by his first wife. Then he changed his mind. wants it in 200-cent York Finan Cial news. Chauncey Depew As authority. Fifth new yorkers control the country because Thev control its Money. Or. Chauncey m. Depew is another Man whose record on the Money question has Given him some uneasiness of late although it must be said in Justice to his unwavering Devotion to the Money Power that or. Depew has always been a consecrated Gold Bug. Still the genial after dinner speaker has been guilty of some very indiscreet remarks. In speaking of the wonderful accumulations which had been amassed in this country within the last few years or. Depew on one occasion said there Are fifty men in new York who can in Twenty four hours Stop every wheel on All railroads close every door of All our manufactories lock every switch of All Telegraph lines and shut Down every Coal and Iron mine in the United states. They can do so because they control the Money which this country had the new York orator been the most devoted Friend of bimetal ism in this country he could not better have portrayed the danger arising from the Money Power than in the striking language which has just been quoted. It is against such a men acing condition As the one described that the advocates of bimetal ism Are waging such a Gallant flight in this Constitution. Raima s coercive measures. Sedalia mo., september 24.the following from a letter received Here by a Sedalia whose son is employed in a responsible position in the Home Stead a mill6, illustrates the Bull dozing methods of the Banna Syndi cate to Force Workin to make a showing of Mckinley strength where it really does not exist. The writer whose name is withheld for the reason that he would lose his Posi tion if it was made Public says i suppose the absorbing topic is the Silver question Aud the pending issues of the present National Campaign. How is the caused of Silver Progress ing up Here they Are almost ing heaven and Earth using divers threats and coercive measures with out end. They Are even going so far Here in and about the Mills As to threaten men if they vote for Bryan they will be discharged. It is nothing More than monarchical Rule. Last Satur Day there was an excursion from Here to Canton o. They paid Oft the men on the Friday previous some thing unknown before and As they filed out from the pay window the men wore accosted by the superintendents of their respective departments and requested to Purchase a ticket and if they declined As some of them did the superintendent would say you had better where is the boasted Freedom of our coun try 1 the Cost of the tickets was$1.50, and a great Many of the men i might say the majority of them were Only earning $1.35 per Day and the Mills have not been working More than nine or ten Days in a month and i know from my own personal observation where the children were unable to attend school for the want of shoes and clothing. Any person not living in close proximity to Large Public works would hardly credit the statement but nevertheless they Are facts gleaned from my own observations and do not come from a prejudiced mind or from what has happened in the Kot afraid of fifty cent dollars. R. Kleinschmidt the Helena banker has made Public an interest ing letter he sent to the new York world a month ago which the world somehow neglected to pub Lish Viz Helena mont., August 21, 189g. To the new York world gentlemen i hereby authorize you to publish that i will make a contract for one Hundred thousand dollars $100,000 Worth of Silver for which i will agree to pay one Dollar and ten cents 1.10 per ounce in United states Gold Coin and to be taken As soon As w. J. Bryan As president of the United states has signed a coinage Bill which will provide for the free and unlimited coinage of Silver at a ratio compared with Gold at 10 to 1, and if any of those who Are talking about fifty cent dollars desire this contract and Are willing to put up a forfeiture i am prepared to secure this offer by a forfeiture of Twenty thousand dollars $20,000. I feel confident that i can arrange similar contracts among my Circle of business acquaintances for Twenty million dollars $20,000,000to be taken one million a month for Twenty months after the signature of such a Bill. Your truly Klei Schimidt. Or. Kleinschmidt is owner of the american National Bank of Helena and one of the richest and most responsible men in Republican. Politics in the pulpit. In the political Campaign through which we Are passing shall the min ister from the pulpit Endeavor to guide his people one Way or the other with All earnestness and from a profound conviction we answer. No there never was a season when the people More needed their Day of rest and Devotion and would be More helped by the elevating pacify ing influences of divine truth. That great moral issues Are at stake May be True but that is an Assumption just now that is a question at Issue. The Christian minister has a commission to preach the word he goes outside of his commission turns aside from his heavenly errand has no Promise of divine favor and help and descends to the level of the world when he undertakes to teach politics. is not specially instructed in states Manship. Many of his hearers Are better informed. enters the Arena of party conflict alienates some part of his hearers loses dignity and authority and is for All his work henceforth shorn of strength and in fluence among presbyterian. The Best for children. I believe Chamberlain s cough remedy is the Best for children i Ever used. For croup it is unequalled. It is a splendid seller with us. T. M. Eckles pm. G., manager Wampum pharmacy Wampum when used As soon As the first symptoms appear that is As soon As the child becomes hoarse or even after the croup cough has appeared it will prevent the attack. The mothers of croup children should Bear this in mind and always keep the remedy at hand. It is also the Best Medicine in the world for colds and whooping cough. For Sale at 25 and 50 cents per bottle by Blackstone & Bell acco Mac and w. Parker Onancock. The state agricultural Board at its session in Richmond last week made arrangements for the enlargement of the weather Bureau. The reports made to the Board show that there Are Good crops of Corn and Toj Jaccoi this state thi6 year. By Twenty thousand this will be Brvan s majority in Virginia. The Staunton correspondent of the Washington Star says representative Henry St. George Tucker who is a member of Congress from the tenth District of Virginia and whose Home is in this City was called upon by the Star correspondent to Day and asked what he thought of the political Outlook in this state As regards the prospects of Mckinley and Ryan. In reply or. Tucker said i feel certain that Virginia will cast hgr electoral vote for Byran and that he will carry the state by a handsome majority probably not le6s than 20.000. There will i fear be some considerable defection from the demo cratic ranks in the cities but not enough to cause the majority to go any less than the figures i have named. It is claimed by the opponents of the democratic party that the vote of the Railroad men will largely be cast for Mckinley but i do not think such will be the Case. 1 am support ing Bryan because i am a Democrat and i want to contribute my influence toward the accomplishment of Unity among the people of Virginia which is not Only needed by the people of our state but of the whole South. I believe the Unity of the democratic party at least is the most important Issue before the people to Day. I have not made any speeches in favor of being a sound Money Man myself i did not care to speak on the currency question which is the Only one the people care to hear discussed und As i could not agree with my party and declined to run for Congress on that platform it is difficult to 6ee How i could speak on a 10 to 1 platform. If you talk Tariff to the people they will run you out and if you failed to talk Money to them they would never again ask you to or. Tucker was asked whether he thought the speeches of or. Ingalls were converting Many of the railway men to the Side of Mckinley but lie declined to say anything on that subject. I believe however he said that a very Large vote will be polled and that Bryan will carry the state the democrats also securing every representative in the next House of representatives from Vir Kansas for Bryan a poll shows he will have 50,000 majority. Topeka kan., september 29.the Allied free Silver forces have made Public the result of a poll of the state. J. Mack love chairman of the democratic state committee says Brynn will carry Kansas by 50, 000 majority. We have officially heard from enough counties in the state to warrant me in placing the majority at that figure and it would not Surprise me if it went even above closing out Sals. On and after monday october 5th, i will yell at greatly reduced prices my entire Stock of goods that were saved from the recent fire consisting Princi Pally of i Eady made closing 3 up goods and slices. I have on hand a full line of clothing including overcoats also a number of Odd Coats pants and vests which must be sold at the buyer s Price to get them out of the Stock.
