Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - March 3, 1920, Big Stone Gap, Virginia Peninsula ? Enterprise John w. Edmonds editor and owner court House a sintered at the Post office at a conic o. Flea. As second class matter. Saturday March 18, 1911. In a recent Telegram to the virginian Pilot the Hon. Carte Glass exposes one political tricks wit Lavrich Sena tors Martin and Swanson Hope to deceive the people of Virginia. No of though except those who Are willing to be fooled by them is simple enough As or. Glass says to believe that their regard for the Public service is their Only reason for not opening Campaign Headquarters in Richmond. The real motive which controls them in the mat ter is Given by or. Glass in the follow ing i have seen a publication concern ing patriotic purpose of certain senatorial aspirants not to open Headquarters in Richmond because of their conscientious Devotion to their legislative duties at Washington but when it is considered that Headquarters in Washington Are More feasible during a ses Sion of Congress than Headquarters a Richmond such an arrant attempt to make a Public virtue of personal convenience serves no better purpose than to furnish bait for people who Are simple enough to gulp Down such stuff. The writing printing and mailing out of thousands upon thousands of personal letters the looking after newspapers and the preparation of paid press matter the dispatching of Campaign documents and personal inter views with the tribesmen that have constantly been held in Washington since it was known that there would be a senatorial contest in Virginia did not seem this Winter so incompatible with a conscientious regard for the Public service As to cause any Cessa tion of such work owing to the efforts of the dyed in the Wool reactionaries a Large proportion of whom have been voted out of office the Senate failed to ratify the Canadian reciprocity treaty. The president immediately proceeded to show that he had not been bluffing when he announced his intention of calling an extra session in such an event. The Corpse of the 61st Congress was not yet cold when he issued his proclamation for that purpose fixing the Date for the convening of the extraordinary session As april 4th. Not withstanding the tremendous pressure that had been brought to Bear upon him to let the Fer Eaty go Over until the convening of the regular session of the 62d Congress because of fear by the Tariff protected interests that their cherished schedule would be interfere with the president had the courage of his convictions. In this instance he has Felt the popular pulse to a Good purpose. The democrats who will have an overwhelming majority in the House now have their Opportunity for revision downward schedule by schedule. The Senate will be near democratic so that it will be difficult to Block Low Tariff legislation there. Twenty thousand american troops Are at the mexican a Feder and More Are to follow according to the latest advices but what they Are there for no one seems to know but president Taft and he has not yet Given that in formation to the Public. Many Are the surmises and among them that the troops Are there to prevent the smug gling of arms across the Border to protect the Large interests which the financiers of Wall Street have in mexi co because of a secret treaty of Mexico with Japan but those closest to the administration insist that it is Only a military demonstration a sort of performance like Jack and Gill March ing up Hill and marching Down the president however cannot Long withold the information from us As Congress meets the Light Wilt have to be turned to. An organized movement for free books for Public school children was launched in Norfolk thi3 week and an association with More than a Hundred representative citizens was formed to make a statewide Campaign to arouse sentiment in the interest of free books. That being accomplished the fight will then be taken to the next general Assembly where it is hoped the legis. Lation to that end will be secured. If a free Book Bill passes that body it i estimated that the tax for that Pur pose will be about $300,000 annually. A special from Warsaw says Hon. W. A. Jones will probably make his opening speech in Norfolk. He heart ily commended the principles enunciated by the Virginia democratic league. He not Only favored he declared electing the members of the Corpora tion commission by popular vote but expressed the conviction that even the judiciary should be so chosen. Uncle Joe says he will not take the minority leadership in Congress. He will hang around Washington for awhile Tosee How it feels to by without a Crown. He has so Long been accustomed to be the whole thing that the big Toad in the email puddle proposition does not a peal to him. Representative w. A. Jones recently asked when he would open his speaking Campaign said somewhere about april 1. He had not he said decided where he would make his opening speech but he intimated that it might be in Norfolk. The size of pension appropriations seem to increase proportion to the Degreif in which the veterans Are being called to their Reward. The stupendous sum of nearly $200,000,000 will be paid to United states pensioners this District Nissl onary conference at Onley tuesday March 7th., a few ministers and laymen of the methodist episcopal Church South met to Confer together in regard Toa missionary Campaign of the w.
