Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - November 10, 1920, Big Stone Gap, Virginia Middle a Ovid a work done by Day or contract and satisfaction guaranteed. Dead taken up and removed to cemetery. See me for Low prices before Peninsula Enterprise John w. Edmonds. Editor and owner. Too Oman court House. A. A tired at the Post office at to combo o. Va., As second class matter. Saturday. January 27, 1912. The Enterprise is in sympathy with anything and everything which makes for the Progress and betterment of our people and is therefore interested in the movement to get a Carnegie Library for Accomac county. We believe that our citizens throughout the county realizing the value of a Good Public Library at their county seat will lend their influence and efforts towards securing it our understanding is that or. Carnegie will erect the building and Supply the books if we will provide the site to build on and pay the annual running expenses or Upkeep of the Library. We also understand that or. Carnegie is now waiting from us and that he will Guage his donation a coming to our rate of local self help the More we can do the More he will do. These conditions appear excellent for the self respecting and aspiring people of any county. They should not cause Accomac to cowardly balk. We have the site waiting in the Public Square at Drummond town and As for the yearly Upkeep Why that should not terrify us. What will it amount to a fuel lights janitors service and a lady custodian. Even if the maximum expense were put at a thousand dollars we believe that in such a cause Accomac a financial sinews Are Strong enough to Bear that sum and not feel it. If the newspaper correspondents Are to be believed and not Many of them have been initiated into the Ananias club another break is imminent in president tafts Cabinet Only the exigencies of or. Tafts aspirations for a second term it is said prevent an explosion. Frank h. Hitchcock postmaster general erstwhile Engineer of the 1908 steam roller and manager of the Republican National Campaign of that year also chief keeper and dispenser of Southern delegates is the cause of All the suppressed emotion. Or. Hitchcock recently made Public that in his forthcoming annual report he would recommend government ownership and operation of Telegraph lines in connection with the postal department he made this contemplated recommendation Public without consulting or. Taft and the president is said to be very Wroth. In the first place or. Taft has never shown any indication that he Pant eth for government ownership of Public utilities like a Hart Pant eth for a water Brook. In the second place the president feels that it was a gratuitous snub for his Cabinet officer to Spring such a proposition upon the Public without his knowledge and consent the temperature Between or. Taft and his postmaster general is said to have fallen several degrees below Zero and it is whispered that were it not for those Southern delegates or. Hitchcock a resignation would be in demand. The realization of the latter gentleman a influence and control Over Southern republicans will probably retain him in his Job if he wants it on the other hand it is said or. Hitchcock is not losing any sleep Over that phase of the situation and that he would gladly Welcome the excuse that he seems to be seeking for an open break which would enable him to switch to the Roosevelt Camp. In truth or. Taft is having a hard time to keep his second term Boom from total Shipwreck. Whether this latest difficulty can be patched up and a semblance of entente cordial can be restored Between the president and the Man who still exercises control Over the delegates that made his nomination possible four years ago is for the future to determine. Letters prom the people. The Carnegie Library. To Womac va., i january 22, 1912. J to the editor of the Enterprise my dear sir the letter of or. Aylett which appeared in Yoor last Issue has interested me very much. has called attention to a need which i Hope our people will realize and will realize so fully As shall cause them to act promptly and wisely. Such a Library would be an incalculable Benefit to the citizens of the county As Well As to the residents of to Cognac. It would have an educational and inspirational value to the entire body of our citizenship. The Book that makes a deep impression on a Young Many a mind often constitutes an Pooh in his life. It May fire the heart stimulate the ambition and by directing his efforts into unexpected channels permanently influence his character. Literature furnishes Many examples to demonstrate this. Not Only have men been stimulated to undertake special literary work by the study of certain books but they have been stimulated by them to enter upon particular lines of action in the serious business of life. Good books not Only elevate the thought and aspirations they act As preservatives against Low associations. They purify elevate and sustain they enlarge and liberalize the mind they preserve it against vulgar worldliness they tend to produce High minded cheerfulness and equanimity of character they fashion and shape and humanize the mind. Erasmus the great scholar was of the opinion that a books were the necessaries of life and clothes the Wordsworth expressed a True and Beautiful sentiment when he wrote a a books we know Are a substantial world both pure and Good a round which with tendrils Strong As flesh and blood. Our pastimes and our happiness can grow. The plan by which the needed fund May be raised to meet the conditions of or. Carnegie can be worked out when a favourable sentiment has been Quot created. It seems to me however that a county so Large prosperous and progressive As Accomac could by a very Small increase of taxation provide the necessary Means to defray the running expenses. The ability of the county to do this is not the question to be considered. The great question is. Are the people willing it May take More than one lawyer and one preacher to Aronse such enthusiasm As shall cause the people to do what they Are Able. We have a Large jury a of Many men of Many minds a and it May be Wise to give the jury ample time to make up its verdict there is scarcely anything that will add so much dignity and Power to the county. Fields and forests and factories and Banks May give the county a High commercial rating but these Are nothing if manhood ennobled and refined by education and religion is wanting. Such a Library would be a constant and efficient auxiliary to every school and Church within the Borders of the county and will give tone to our civilization. Let it be to Accomac a glory that she takes the Lead in this great educational movement. Very truly yours a. B. Dunaway. In de Morlani. Died at the Home of his father at of Darhal md., Joseph 0. Mariner in the 25th year of his age. was converted at Pitt Creek Baptist Church in 1909 and Wab a consistent member of that Church until he died december 20th., 1911. On tuesday night before he died he waked and said a the was at the first station in heaven a and asked his brother George who was in the room if he Wonla meet him there and after asking the same question again before his brother answered and told him that a the would a he then smiled sweetly and passed a a into the arms of Jesus Safe on his gentle gone and the world to go on As be fore gone with a smile from the old Homestead door dear faithful heart to Home Back never More of sad nevermore gone Home is not Home Joe is not there dark is Hie room empty his chair Angels have taken him away from our Oare. Lifted him Over life a Stair. By two Brothers Charlie and George. The general Assembly of Virginia on thursday elected Thomas s. Martin to succeed himself As u. S. Senator for the full term of six years beginning March 4, 1913, and senator Claude a. Swanson to fill the unexpired term of senator Daniel beginning March 4, 1912. They were elected unanimously and this was expected. The democrats pledged their support in the primary and were in Honor bound to give it and the silence of the republicans making their election unanimous is explained by the virginian Pilot in the following Quot the failure of the republicans in the Virginia legislature to cast compliment. Tary ballots for members of their own party when the election for United states senator took place was a Graceful acknowledgement of the Courtesy which permitted so Many of them to vote in the democratic primary last summer. It is delightful to witness such reciprocal Amity Between political in the hearing held monday on the question of redistricting the state for congressional representation before the two committees on privileges and elections. Senator Harding Walker of Northumberland said the people were satisfied As they Are other senators preferred the Bowman Bill which would take Spotsylvania Fredericksburg Caroline and King William from the first and put them in the eighth while transferring James City and Williamsburg from the third Tori he first a woman suffrage met defeat monday when the committee on privileges and elections of the House of delegates determined to report the Montague Amend. Ments to the Constitution with a recommendation that they do not pass. This decision was reached in an executive session. This action Means that the proposition has no Chance for approval at the session of 1912. Governor Mann has signed the Bill prohibiting the shooting of any partridges or quails in any part of the state either by owners of land or by Hunters with permission of owners. Or. Fitzhugh has introduced a Bill in the House requiring every person who carries a concealed weapon to first obtain a Tio Nae to do a and u live Bead. Good roads. Temperanceville vs., january 23, 1912. F or. Editor i have read with interest the published report of the meeting at Onley on the 8tb. Inst., to better the condition of on roads. I am always heartily in favor of Good roads and am glad to see such interest being awakened in our citizens. But As to the methods that they propose 1 wish to say a few words and to Call to the attention of those gentlemen a Law already existing that in my judgment better covers the Case than the method that they propose. If they will refer to acts of Assembly chapter 47, they will find an act approved february 25, 1910, As follows 1 the circuit court of the county non the petition of a majority of the Board of supervisors of said county or non petition of one Hundred and fifty freeholders of said county shall make an order requiring the judges of election at the next election of county officers or at any other time not less than 30 Days from the Date of such order which shall be designated therein to open a poll and take the sense of the qualified voters of the county on the question whether the Board of supervisors shall Issue Bonds for the purpose of Macada Mizing or otherwise Perma j gently improving the Public roads or Bridges or either of them the approximate location length and Width of such roads As is proposed to be Macau amazed or permanently improved to be named in the order. I the said order shall designate the Lo-1 cation of such roads or Bridges As Are to be improved and the Maxi a mum amount of Bonds to be by this act the method is made Plain As How to proceed by a Law that already exists and that requires no delay or further legislation. The plan proposed by the Onley meeting is indeed plausible Reading but Why have a civil Engineer at All in this level county when there is scarcely any need for even grading except now and then Why not have the county Surveyor who is a civil Engineer do the civil engineering that is needed and thereby save a thousand or two dollars in the form of a salary ? Why not let the Road machine Man in the District where the work is to be done overseer this work or if the he is too Busy at the time Call in a Man and Only pay him tor me Lime employed and save the expense of salaries to overseers this All important matter should be determined by the vote of the taxpayers As they have the heat and the Harden of the Day to bears As is already provided in the above act. I am not opposed to any method that will improve on condition in any Way Bat let As Stop and think and consider the safest and. Soundest business methods and let not our enthusiasm cause us to lose our cooler judgment or bight of the let that the Day of settlement for these things Mast come. Respectfully w. L. Nock.
