Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - June 19, 1918, Big Stone Gap, Virginia Peninsula ? Enterprise John w. Edmonds. Editor owner. Too Oman court House a. \u25a0ntered at the Post office at Accomac 0.

That the Payne Tariff Bill framed in a secret conclave of the republicans of the House upon which a final vote was taken yesterday is on of the great est frauds that a Congress has Ever at tempted to Force upon an intelligent people is daily becoming More evident. Many of its schedules Are outrageous in their disregard for the interest of the Consumers. Take for instance the mat ter of gloves what woman will say that gloves Are not a necessity under the present Dingley Tariff the Glove duties Are much too High far exceeding All difference in Cost of production Here abroad. But the Payne Bill pro Vides for an extraordinary increase in the duty on gloves used by women children of moderate Means. It is openly charged that this unwarranted increase in the duty on gloves is the outcome of a bargain made by Republican leaders with one littaur of new York state a Rich Glove manufacturer former member of Congress who has heretofore been mixed in grave Public scandals. Littaur was a Liberal contributor to the Republican Campaign fund in 1908. The Glove scheduler s not the Only outrage in the Payne Bill by a Long uni to o duty i ii fir quiver a Corbo which poor people Are compelled to use or go without any is increased 100 per cent while silk stockings which the Rich can afford to Wear do from Choice is increased not at All. These two items gloves Stock Ings affect every woman of moderate Means in the land protests Are being made in mass meetings held by them in Many cities of the country against the higher Tariff on these other articles of women s attire but they have no votes their protests will not be heeded. The Payne Bill though puts arsenic on the free list. Is it As a hint to them that in the event the Burden becomes too hard for them to Bear the thoughtful considerate makers of the Payne Bill have provided a cheap Means of exit for them from this cruel selfish world the Mckinley sophistry that cheap Coats make cheap men had great Vogue in 1896. Labor in Large numbers was deluded by the fable that if it voted to give the manufacturer a big Bonus the manufacturer would take care of labor. The same argument was used with telling effect in 1900and 1904. And again last year after hard times had dealt the country a fearful blow the old gag was repeated with a slight variation similar effect. The work Ingman was told last year that if he voted for Taf the closed Mills would re open Prosperity would surely come. If Taft was not elected the Mills would remain closed. Taft was elected now the deluded labourers Are told that if the Tariff makes any difference in the gains of the Rich employees poor half starved labor must stand it. Dividends will not be Cut but wages will. In Many Large industries reductions have already come. Labor is reaping the Reward of its political Folly. Virginians in the House voted tues Day As follows on the Tawney lumber amendment which provided for free rough lumber for it Hay Carlin an Jones. Against it Lamb Lassiter Maynard Saunders Glass and did not vote. He was not in the House. The Tawney amendment is not considered a Good test. Twenty nine democrats voted against it six of them North Carolina democrats on Forit. To provide monuments at the Graves of president John Tyler George Wythe the latter one of the signers of the declaration of Independence representative Lamb has introduced a Bill appropriating Sio too for the erection of a Monument in Hollywood cemetery Richmond where the body of president Tyler is buried is too for a Marker in St. Johns where Wythe is buried. Chairman j. Taylor Ellyson of the state democratic committee says he will Issue a Call for a meeting of the committee in Richmond the latter Parton this month. A Large volume of Busi Ness will be taken up at the meeting. Assessments for candidates will have to be fixed preparations made for the general Campaign before the nov Ember election. Richmond business men will hold a Public meeting on april 13 to create sentiment against the calling of a local option election. Good roads Heel nos. Hon. Chas. To Lassiter of Peters Burg Field worker of the Good Road association of Virginia spoke at. A comae Onancock Keller Hall Wood during the week hut owing Topdressing matters on the Western Shore he was unable to fill his appointment at Parksley. During the next fall or Winter he will visit the Shore again Hopes to meet the people at quite a number he was unable to reach this visit. His address at Accomac c. Another Points was exceedingly inter Esting instructive should have been heard by every mud Hauler on the Shore. It in quite impossible in a Short newspaper item to present even the Many chief Points of value which he made in favor of Good roads to say nothing of other Good ideas which were suggested in his remarks. He was listened to attentively by quite a Good crowd at Accomac 0. And Onancock but owing to the exceeding Good work weather keeping our Farmers at Home the attendance at the other Points were not so seventy five persons joined the association at these meetings committee of ten prominent Road enthusiasts from each District were appointed to solicit other members. Membership of one Dollar is required this sum goes to maintain the Good roads working Force throughout Testate. The people seem to be in Earnest in their determination to Start Road improvement in this state it now seems that this movement will soon grow into such an irresistible Force that even our most timid or obstinate officials will feel safer in moving with it than against it.
