Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - September 29, 1920, Big Stone Gap, Virginia A a a. A a it a a a v. J a Imi is a Peninsula Enterprise John w. Edmonds editor and owner too Oman court House a. Entered at the poet office at Accomac o. Al. Va., As second Clase matter. Saturday november 25, 1911. It is evident that the Battle for control of the Republican National convention next year Between the progressives and stand patters is to be War to the knife and knife to the Hilt. The friends of president to it Are showing a great Deal of discomfiture Over the demands of the progressives who Are United on la Follette for the nomination that the question of Choice shall be submitted to the rank and file of the party. The la Follette Boomers have made a formal demand for a presidential preference primary. It is certain that there will be such a primary in not less than a dozen states. Five have already provided for it in legislation. In several other states legislation will be enacted this win ter. In still others where the progressives Are in control but in which there will be no sessions of the Legislatures the primaries will be called by the state committees. In those states in which the stand patters control the. Organization there is no feverish haste to organize primaries but it is a question whether the reactionaries can safely resist a demand for Public expression of preference if it becomes insistent another Thorn in the Side of the stand patters is the reported change of sentiment among Federal officeholders in the South. It had All along been conceded that or. Taft would control the Southern delegates through the Power of Federal patronage but now it is said the officeholders Are becoming imbued with the idea that a renomination of Taft spells certain defeat in the ensuing election and that the Only Hope of holding on to their jobs lies in the nomination progressive who might have a possible Chance of election. The switching of the Southern delegates from Taft to la Follette is not an impossible contingency which is decidedly alarming to the reactionaries. There is no doubt that from now on the fight for the control of the Republican National convention will be aggressive and bitter. But whichever Side wins Victory will end right there. The next president will be a Democrat. The first National convention of the american association for Highway improvement was held in the City of Richmond this week and if the enthusiasm manifested in its proceedings by the Dis. To anguished men present counts for anything a Long step was taken in the interest of Good roads throughout the country. Many of the speakers submitted their views As to the necessity for Good roads and the benefits conferred by them but the most notable address seems to have been made by the Junior senator from Virginia Hon Claude a. Swanson. According to his views the solution of the problem of Good roads is through Quot government aids and in the furtherance of that object he wants the government to appropriate fifty millions of dollars a year upon the same plan that the state of Virginia now helps the various counties the state bearing a proportion of the expense of constructing the Road while the counties Bear the remainder of the Cost. Senator Martin also made a speech favouring the fifty million Dollar appropriation and the association As a body seems to have been so much impressed with their views that a Resolution was adopted Quot to memorialize the Congress of the United states to extend National Aid to the Sev eral states of the Union for the purpose of aiding and encouraging them to build and maintain Good roads a along the lines suggested by the senators from Virginia. November 7,1911, appears to have been a Field Day for the Independent voter. Massachusetts those a Democrat for governor and republicans for other state offices. Philadelphia smashed the Penrose slate by electing the democratic Keystone candidates for mayor and solicitor. Maryland elected the Republican candidate for governor and the democratic nominees for other state offices. Mississippi democrats appear to have elected a socialist lieutenant governor because of dissatisfaction with their own candidate. Taken As a whole it seems to have been a bad Day for All kinds of political Bosses. Claus Spreckles the great sugar magnate has been a Democrat tor 30 years but he did no to know it for All that time he has been training under a Republican Banner and endeavouring to Reform that party. Now he has Given it up As a bad Job and come Over where he belongs. Or. Spreckles says the Republican party cannot be depended upon to make a proper reduction of Tariff duties and that Tariff Reform is the big Reform which will put the country on its feet. He sees no Hope for this except in democratic Success. Statistics just compiled by the state health department confirm the recent predictions that the crusade against consumption in the state was beginning to show results. According to these figures since the year ending september 30,1909�?T it was estimated that 12,127 cases of consumption had originated in the state during the twelve months then ending. The figures Given out show an estimated total of Only 8,651 new cases this year. At a meeting of All the boys com clubs in Culpeper county there were a great Many competitors for the various prizes offered by the state and the u. S agricultural departments. While most of the boys showed Good yields the first prize $20, for raising the greatest number of barrels to the acre was awarded Chas. Broils aged 13 years and six months. He raised 24 barrels to the acre Only eight barrels less than highest yield. Baptist general association. The Baptist general association closed its eighty eighth annual session monday night and adjourned to meet in Petersburg next november. The features of the dosing session were the Fine and memorable addresses by professor Spencer b. Mee ser D., of grower Seminary Chester pa., and Rev. Ashby Jones d d., formerly of Richmond now of Augusta a. At the morning session various matters were under consideration. Or. Oliver f. Gregory of Staunton read a paper on systematic Beneficence and Rev. J. T. Tucker made a statement in the interests of the Baptist ministerial fraternal association. Then came the memorial meeting in Honor of the beloved dead. The list was unusually Long and included the names of drs. William h. Whitsitt James b. Taylor and John Pollard who died in Richmond and revs. J. W. Martin of Amherst George h Snead of Fluvanna and f. R. Boston of Warrenton. The report on Temperance was next presented and the following resolutions adopted 1 that we the Baptist general association of Virginia pledge on hostility to the beverage liquor traffic and urge our people to use All honorable efforts for its extermination. 2 that we i affirm our Confidence in the anti Saloon league of Virginia and commend it to the support of our people. 3 that we condemn and deplore the action of Secretary Wilson in accepting the honorary chairmanship brewery a convention while holding Federal office. 4 that we petition our representatives in Congress to urge and support a measure that will so regulate interstate Commerce As to prevent the shipments of intoxicating liquors into prohibition territory. 5 that we heartily commend those newspapers that Are with us in our fight against the liquor traffic and refuse to sell their advertising columns As an Agency for the liquor interests. 6j that we the Baptist general association of Virginia in annual session in the City of Norfolk 1911, and representing More than 150,000 White people in this state do earnestly petition the next legislature of Virginia to enact such a measure As will give the people an Opportunity to vote on the question of state prohibition of the liquor traffic. It is a significant fact the methodist conference adopted similar resolutions to the above. Thus the two greatest religious bodies of the state Are a unit on the Temperance question. Resolutions of respect. The following resolutions were unanimously adopted by the Accomac methodist sunday school on sunday november 12th, 1911 whereas on the 30th Day of october 1911, our beloved brother opt. Samuel 8. Milliner was called from his earthly pilgrimage to his eternal Home therefore be it resolved 1, that while we Bow in Humble submission to the will of our Hevenly father yet our hearts Are sorely grieved by his departure. 2. That in the death of brother Milliner our sunday school and Church have lost a member whose Long life and splendid character endeared him to All who had the pleasure of knowing him and those who knew him Best loved him most. 3 to the bereaved widow and children we extend our deepest sympathy and commend them in the hour of their sorrow to him who doth All things Well. 4. That a copy of these resolutions be published in the Peninsula Enterprise and a copy forwarded to the widow of our brother. Asa Driscoll l. Floyd Nock Ernest t. Koenig s. J. Stevenson committee.
