Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - May 12, 1920, Big Stone Gap, Virginia Peninsula Enterprise John w. Edmonds editor and owner. Too Oman court How use Abutai eds to the. Posi o in Cut a comic o. Al. A. A T�eooud-ol�88 matter. Saturday july 8, 1911. Or. William e. Todd who formerly filled the chair of history at Randolph Macon College and who is now of the University of Chicago in several speeches made in Virginia during the week strongly denounced the a political machines of the country and especially the one in our own state Virginia in his opinion being cursed with a machine almost As bad As that which put Lorimer in the United states Senate. The head of these machines he says Are All in the United states Senate and he Points the Way in which we can destroy the machine in our state in the following a one thing More. You have a courageous and Able Man who now offers to Lead you out of this political desert which the Martin machine has made of Virginia. Or. Jones has a clean record he has not bowed the knee to the Bosses or the railway interests or the lumber men he has Given you Long and faithful service and he deserves the Reward which you May now give but the reason i should vote for him is his Promise to deliver Virginia from the bondage of a corrupt and demoralizing regime. Vote for no Man because of personal reasons vote to improve and help your state and country and voting thus you cannot fail to vote for Good men. If you put Jones in the Senate you not Only put out a bad Man but you give the nation a Good Man and Able Leader for the trying times ahead of a a trusts says Henry o. Havemeyer son of the late sugar magnate a Are blessings they have helped make America the greatest country in the world Quot. Blessings in disguise probably but the disguise is so perfect that the Public fails to penetrate it trusts have undoubtedly through economic processes contributed greatly to reduce the Cost of production. The organization of forces have been so perfected As to produce at a minimum of Cost so far the Trust is a saving of waste and a Benefit. Unfortunately for the american Public however this saving instead of accruing to the consumer is pocketed by the combinations which control industries who take advantage of artificial restrictions of Trade made possible by the High protective policy to exact abnormally High profits. Extortionate prices though Are not the greatest of the Trust evils. The Domino Tion of politics by these insatiable combinations the deliberate murdering of Competition the debauchery of representatives of the people in state and National Legislatures and the Conse quent degenerating effect upon Public and private service Are the sins that stand out most glaringly from a system that has been perfected under the alleged equal rights guarantee of the greatest Republic on the Earth. President tafts persistent fight for the Canadian reciprocity treaty is leading him to utterances directly antagonistic to the High protective policy which has distinguished and now bids fair to extinguish his party. He is camping on the Borderland of genuine democratic principles. The reciprocity treaty is thoroughly democratic but not More so than the Farmers free Bill or the reduced Wool schedule. In his address before the conservative club at Providence the president said it seemed possible for him a to Appeal for reciprocity to both parties free traders and Tariff for Revenue men. We must recognize a he said a that the time for the chinese Wall has gone when an Industry must ask for More Protection than it absolutely needs. I believe that there Are enough republicans who believe that the protective Tariff to be maintained must be dealt with moderately to insure that the policy will carry.�?�. What a gnashing of Teeth this must produce in the Camp of those interests which have fattened at the Public expense under the stimulus of High Protection now denounced by the first citizen of the Republican party in the land the democrats and progressive republicans of the United states Senate Are in the Saddle and can direct the course a of legislation if they maintain their coalition. The prospects seem Bright for a general revision of the Tariff at the present session the Canadian reciprocity treaty being out of the Way Unin Cumber by amendments designed to kill it the majority of the insurgents favor a decrease in Tariff rates and will probably act with the democrats in forcing through remedial measures coming from the House. Other progressives it seems will be impelled to act with the democrats More from policy than Justice or rather principle As they View the matter. They fear the effect of the Tariff Issue that will be raised by the democrats in next years presidential Campaign and would discount it by disposing of the question at this session giving the democrats the help of their votes for that purpose. It is evident that the great matter of lower duties on the necessaries of life will play a Large part in the elections of 1912. Fifty two of the leading railroads of the United states operated agricultural instruction trains for the Benefit of Farmers along the routes using 239 cars and spending More than $90,000 in the service during the twelve months ended june 30 1911. It is estimated that 379,290 persons attended the institutes conducted on the trains which traversed 40,771 Miles of track and made 1,793 stops ranging from 40 minutes to two Days each.
