Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - March 24, 1920, Big Stone Gap, Virginia Peninsula Enterprise 40hw w. Edmonds editor and owner. Too Oman court House a entered at the Post office at a com amp co. Va., As second class matter. Saturday april 8, 1911/ to representative Carter Glass opened his Campaign for the United states Senate in the City of Richmond on Friday night of last week in an address bitterly arraign ing the a a machine a and charging it with All Bort of crimes. His remarks Are reported As being Well received and confined almost to what others had done notably governor Mann and senator Swanson both of whom came in for a Good Deal of criticism but much deferred As to the latter he said until he could meet him on the platform and could say it to his face. His reason for being a candidate is Given in the following extract from his address a because of a definite personal conviction that a there is something Rotten in the state of Denmark a a to a full realization of which the people of this Commonwealth need to be aroused with a View of having them apply the remedy and make this again a a government of the people by the people and for the people a a a and we mistake the temper of the people if the same a personal conviction does not control enough of them when the Light is fully turned on to apply the a a remedy which will destroy the a a machine which now dominates the affairs of the state in the interest of a few officeholders. The sixty second Congress met in extra session last tuesday. Representative Champ Clark of Missouri was elected speaker and in accepting the Honor warned the democratic members that the party was on trial with the Opportunity of winning a still higher expression of Confidence on the part of the american people and outlined the measures through which the party can continue to enjoy it in part As follows a intelligent revision of the Tariff election of United states senators by popular vote changes in the House rules to permit proper consideration of Public measures Economy in handling the purse strings of the country the publication of Campaign contributions and the Early admission of new Mexico and Arizona to e in. The afternoon of wednesday the message of the president dealing with the single subject the Canadian reciprocity agreement and recommending Ita enactment was received and read in the House. The president insists that the ratification of the treaty at once is the Plain duty of the members of the House. It should be passed upon promptly but it is up to demo Crata to say whether action in the matter should not be preceded by other legislation of equal importance. There is a reckoning coming for the owners of the new York building in which 150 persons mostly Young women lost their lives a few Days ago the place was a fire trap inadequately provided with fire escapes and safety appliances. Such slim Means of exit As did exist had been partitioned off or boarded up. It seems inconceivable that in the chief City of the country which prides itself upon its government such a condition of affairs could be permitted to exist. A rigid investigation is promised after 150 have paid the penal to for some ones criminal carelessness. Hon. W. A. Jones at Coom amp a c. I in Mem Orlam. The Hon. William a. Jones rep-1 in Loving remembrance of my dear re tentative from this District and a daughter Ora Poulson hears who candidate for the Senate against sen i gently fell asleep in Jesus five years Ator Martin addressed a Large and ago March 28th, 1900.silently tenderly there the Birds sing and where the Sweet Flowers come with the Spring with grasses to cover her Pillo w Blest. And Blue skies above her we Laid her to rest. Enthusiastic audience at Accomac o. H., monday. Tidewater he stated in his opening remarks had not had a senator since 1861 and entitled to it for that reason but he put his claims to the position on other grounds. He was in the contest atthe Call of thousands a it of voters from every Section of the state who were tired of the machine methods by which the affairs of the state were run by about a half dozen men with senator Martin As their Leader and he entered the fight with Lull knowledge of the Odds that he bad to reckon with in having against Bim 95 per cent of the officials of the state and thousands of voters whose names had been illegally placed upon the registration books. Or. Jones discussed both state and Federal questions and was very severe id his arraignment of the Mahine of which he declared senator Martin was the recognized heat. Referring to the appointment of persons to the positions of Honor Aud Trust in the state he said the endorsement of the great Mogul of the party at his Headquarters in w Ashing ton was always necessary to ensure Success and spoke of the humiliation to which Many even judg6s,had subjected themselves in seeking it that the Loor of Opportunity for that reason was closed to Many deserving and Smriti us Young men too proud to ask favor of him. Answering the declaration of some that Martin was a Man that a does things a he as9trted, that he was either dumb or dodged when important matters were before the Senate that Money appropriated for improve rents at Hampton and Newport news had been secured by him and that senator Mariin failed to add a Dollar to the Bill when it reached the Senate that while he had secured Over $150,000 for improving the water ways of the Eastern Shore senator Martin had nothing to his credit exc it the Effort to get pay for churches to the amount. Of about $3,000, in which he had failed and that he had made no More Effort to secure these appropriations than he had. He denounced fusion ism in Norfolk county and declared that the democratic Boss of Norfolk City and the Republican Boss of Norfolk City Alvah h. Martin member of the Republican National committee were working Side by Side for senator Martin. He referred to the famous Ocean View meeting of August last when senator Martin standing Between these two Bosses had declared great Deal has been said about the Boss of Norfolk and said Quot if there is a Boss i am glad to number him a Moag my friends if there is a machine i am proud to be a member of it if there is a ring i am proud to be a member of it. In this connection the speaker called attention to the recent meeting of be county committee of Isle of Wight presided Over by colonel Fen on Day the father in Law of senator Martin where it was decided to permit All White republicans to participate in democratic primaries and to do so even if their names were not upon the list of those who had paid their taxes. This he said was not the Only county in the District where similar action had been taken. Or. Jones charged that the revenues from the Oyster Industry had steadily fallen off for the past four years. The net Revenue he said had fallen from $66.000 in the season ending october 1907, to $23,000 for last year and he asked How Long at this rate would it be before the people of the state would have to put their hands in their pocket to pay the expenses of Admiral Leeds yacht. Or. Jones criticized at length senator Martins ship subsidy record. He also read an editorial from the the deadlock in the new York legislature was broken last week by the election to the United states Senate of judge James of Gorman a Man of High Legal attainments and unblemished character say the daily press of that state. He is regarded As a progressive Democrat and sound on the Groat issues now claiming Public Atten Tiona election of senators by the peo pie reciprocity with Canada revision of the Tariff downward and regulation of the trusts and combines. Litlie by Little the abuse of Railroad privileges grown to enormous proportions is being trimmed by the interstate Commerce commission. Its recent decision requiring the roads to Stop discrimination in focal carrying rates is a Gratifying evidence of priv Gre Sion to Effird fair and treatment of All shippers. Impart Fannie Crosby the famous hymn writer who has just reached her 91st rear and possesses excellent health bends this Beautiful message to the country a let everyone strive to make this world a Little happier for other people that is the Best sentiment and the truest gospel i can give the income tax amendment to the Constitution is bound to come. It is just and is constantly growing in popular support. It has already been favourably acted upon by the Legislatures of Twenty six states and hut nine More states Are required to make the amendment part of the Constitution. The report of George w. Koiner. Commissioner of agriculture shows that in 1908 with 4,030,300 acres under cultivation the state produced $129,000,000 of values while in 1910 with Only 3,350,000 acres in cultivation the production was $236,000,000. According to a news item in a local afternoon paper senator Martin will refuse to meet congressman Jones on the stump in joint debate owing to his wife a objections. It is hardly believed that he will accept the Challenge of Jones. Softly Aud tenderly under the Sod she is at rest on the bosom of god where Bright Days of summer Uehr fade at eve no sin to overcome her no cares to Grieve. Tearfully tenderly we gazed on her face of All Earth a sorrows there was not a Trace but a peace Only Given to hearts that Are pure t he Sweet peace of heaven that forever endures. Lovingly and tenderly we Laid her to rest. Away from Earth a sorrows and cares. We Trust she Jug waiting to Welcome us Home and the blessings of heaven to share. Although five years have passed since we last looked on that precious face yet we miss her still. The Home is not what it used to be and the vacant chair can never be filled. One lt-39 at Home the charmed Circle broken a dear face missed Day by Day from its usual place but cleansed saved perfected by a Grace one More in heaven. One less on Earth i its pain its sorrow and its toils to a share one less the pilgrims daily Cross to Bear one More the Crown of the Blest to Wear at heme in heaven. By her Mother.
