Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - March 30, 1893, Big Stone Gap, Virginia $miii5iil�t in rep i to circulation a tic �?�rt�ar��5�kwbc�rrrw�nwionqt� .�?~rraerj5t�ji entered at the pos Tonico at Avion or. I. Va., but . Accomac c. A. A thursday sept. 20, 1883 Teakle t. in Ott. Jio Usk of Del a g a t e a f or the county of Accomac. Dit. Join t. Wilkins House of delegates for Ilio counties of Accomac and Northampton. seems to lie a persistent Effort to place lie nominee of the democratic party or this county in a false Light before the Jie Ople on the subject of a local it is broadly stated that a Wescott is boasting of his a local opt our schemes if elected to the House of delegates a with much More of a similar nature. Now or. Wescott has never at any time or place Given anyone any reason to make any such statement and we Here deny to Toto in his behalf every such statement lie is the candidate of the democratic party and if elected will be the servant of the a Hule i a and will do their bidding and not that of any clique society or ring. A local options does not enter As a Factor in this contest�?1 but Mahoner does and hence Che of tears. The Mahone ites Hope to elect their Man whoever he May be with democratic votes by the lose Issue of a local option a and having elected him will use him for the purposes of Tho Boss and not for fighting a local democrats of Accomac Mahoner is seeking to make you the Means of its Success by parading a false Issue and a catching your vote to turn Over your interests to the Mahone Arthur spurn them from you and close around Wescott As the method to crush Mahoner in Accomac the democratic party of aces Mae labors under the terrible disadvantage of a Large majority. It is paralysing efforts in organization. The idea has become fixed in the minds of those from whom the party expects Aye demands Active work that we can win anyhow so it makes Little difference whether we work and organize or not. Liat ineffable Folly the Mahone a thur combination is thoroughly in hand Here As elsewhere in the state while the democratic party is running wild. Gentlemen of the county committee we urge upon you the absolute necessity for thorough organization. True we can win but you owe it As a High duty to your county your state yourselves that you shall win by such a majority As shall Bury Mahoner forever Here. Upon you rests the onus of the work of thorough organization. At once wit i the least possible delay organize your precinct committees with men of Energy and determination and let not a Day pass without Steps being taken to perfect organization so that when the 6th of november shall come old Accomac shall Roll up the heaviest democratic majority she has Ever Given. To work organize organize it to a great mistake to believe that such a Victory As the conflict demands As Virginia expects of Accomac can be won by Public speaking merely. True the exposition of the principles of democracy and the of duality of Mahoner a by such men As Goode Crox ton Tucker and Able shakers among us will largely Aid the peo pie in grasping the True inwardness of the campaigns but there is another and More valuable Aid to Victory. It is in work thorough work of organization. Ilore in the Mutu to Man dissensions of the issues is the real work to be done and it is to be finished Only by the final discussion at the ballot Box. Let not those to whom the people look in this contest forget that Earnest persistent work is the Only Road to Victory such As we can win if we but resolve that from now till the first tuesday in november we will not weary in work. Junius Brutus Booth died peacefully at 11 of clock p. M., last monday at Manchester mass. Mrs Booth was the oldest son of the great tragedian by his first wife. He was born in Charleston C., in 1821, and spent the Early part of Liis life on the Home place in liar a Ford county my. He was married three times. Political notes. a Jtb i. Up Rwjr ten Al the coloured politicians of Boston held a meeting monday and appointed delegates to the coloured National convention at Louisville. An address was adopted declaring that the coloured population of the South is disfranchised and that the Viola Tion of their civil rights by in keep j cars and common carriers Calls for redress. Capt Jay club Bol Wood one of a Honor a nominees for to House of delegates in Washington county said last fall a every Man in the readjusted party that a got any sense knows the natural position of our party is in to Republican party and we will Havo to Send delegates to the National Republican convention in 1884, to nominate a at a speech made at Woodstock va., on the 81 h Day of september d. 8. In Encl told the re adjusters in unequivocal terms to what party belonged the credit of his the Henkel school Bill Bow it was smothered by a readjusted committee on finance in the House Aud Ltd to be withdrawn and run through the Senate by democratic support and finally passed through the House under a motion to suspend the 20th Rule violently opposed by the re adjusters. They Are taking leave of him by dozens and scores. T 1�?~0 Lee county Sentinel Calls names saying a notably absent in the a Liberal convention in this county on tuesday were the i Lana rays the Fulkerson the Ham Lens the orrs the have Leys the lamberts the Wynns and the Blackemore. These men Are the Boue Aud sinew of the readjusted party and were among the most formidable of its advocates. But As the Boss tightens his grip he squeezes out the democrats and fastens upon the from a recent speech made at Salem va., judge Staples whose decisions were so much applauded by the re adjusters while he was on the supreme Bench we clip the follow in he showed that for the successful establishment of Public schools in Virginia the democrats deserve the credit. He showed that in 1871, when they came into Power there were in Virginia 100 Public school houses in 1880, when they went out there were 2,295, Aud teachers and pupils in proportion. As for this be said a i never was for it As a Man or As a judge and i am Happy to say that my opinion is to Day receiving the sane Tion of the most eminent judges in this country. A but a said lie a it was not passed As a democratic measure a democratic legislature in fact repealed it. it was not a democratic measure. It was conceived by Gilbert c. Walker a stranger in our midst who was selected and put Forward for governor by Gen. of Gen. Mahone judge Staples said it was not his purpose to speak unkindly but be should discuss his Public acts Aud would say that of All the men in this state most responsible for the passage of the funding Bill Gen. Mahone is the Man. But i will not dwell on Tho Public debt question. I thank god that it is dead. Well not even hold a funeral Over it. Let is rather rejoice that it is settled. Let it lie proclaimed Over All the land that All parties Are glad to get rid of it. Do i say All parties Well that requires some modification. The a Are adjusters know very Well that it would put Money in their pockets to readjust readjustment. A Planse judge Staples quoted Riddleberger and other functionaries of the administration party to show that Tho debt is settled Aud be ridiculed Tho idea that the democrats would reopen the questions after All they have suffered from it if they got into Power. Tho part of his speech that produced the deepest effect was that in which to showed up the coalition and exposed the fallacy of the proposition that a Arthur is for Here he referred to the fact that Arthur vetoed the River and Harbor Bill which contains 8300,000 for Southern Rivers that in the appointment of 331 ministers Aud consuls &c., the South had gotten but 26, and the North had gotten 306, Aud that be bad placed the entire Federal Power and patronage in Virginia in the bands of and indeed were Arthur for us should we sacrifice principle to that Emit not so. Just Here judge Staples spoke of Tho time when colonel b. E. Lee was sent for and offered that most illustrious and glittering position the command of the United states armies and the judge asked an audience largely composed of sex Confederate soldiers did Lee say a i am for Lincoln because Lincoln is for me a cries a no a a do Yon suppose lie would have disposed of his people like cattle in the shamble a cries a no a Uncle same a Navy.
