HIGH FOOD PRICES.
Newspapers are full of accounts of
Kjycotts on meat. Everybody is to
uit eating meat and thus bring some
yrant to his knees. Nobody seems to
:now just who or what that tyrant is,
et all are fighting this bogy and all
xpect to put him in his grave. There
re many reasons assigned for the high
rices of meat and food stuffs general
7. Some put it on the tariff, others
n trusts, others on the farmer who
rill not raise beeves and vegetables in
nfficient quantities, others put it on
le middle men who handle packing
ouse stuffs ami other necessities, and
le local butcher. None, however,
nows just whr.i the causes are. They
0 not comefr' :a one source only, they
re legion. Yet the high prices of
leat may all be traced, we think, toj
le one fountain head—the Beef trust.
he Beef trus; may in turn be traced
i the tariff, und the tariff is easily
aceable to the Republican party,
r'hen that is reached the whole ques
on becomes clouded, and injury to
le public becomes impossible from j
ich a source, because no policy of that
irty ever hurt the people, none was
'er wrong, and notwithstanding ca
lamities come in numbers and without
warning, they.are not and cannot be
traceable to that wiser than "the
giver of all good things" himself, that
party which can do no wrong. The
leaders cry no, no, when the party is
accused. Yet we hear that 2 cents per
pound tariff on beef should be remov
ed. Why it was ever put on nobody
seems to know. Some say this would
help conditions. What rot. The trusts
which now are so mighty would con
trol any shipment of beef into this
country and the price would remain as
high or higher than now. There is no I
tariff on hides, yet leather is advanc
ing. Why ? Because the trusts are
too powerful to admit a competitor,
and free hides or no free hides, tree
beef or no free beef, it will take 20
years or more to make a change in any
of these commodities, even if the tariff
is taken off". Along the Mexican or
Canadian borders a little cheaper beef
might be eaten. But the vast interior
would never know whether it was on
or off. There is some absurd talk
about beef from South America being
shipped in here. How simple, how
foolish. In the first place there is no
_ line of steamers on which to ship it.
Persons coming from Brazil even much
less further South, go to Europe
and back to New York to reach the
In the second place it would have to
be shipped across the Equator, and
this would be a great undertaking.
The beef eaten in the United States
will be grown in the United States
now and always, and no one with com
mon intelligence will say else. Does
it not seem strange that all this cry
about the high prices of living, in so
far as food is concerned, is so wide and
distressing? It does to some. It seems
strange to us. But not so very strange
when we consider how big a fool the
average man is. He allows trusts and
combines to pull the wool over his
eyes on most every occasion. Why
has he joined in this howl which must
in the end hark back upon the farmer,
when railroads, telegraphs, telephones,
coal, coal oil, tobacco, clothes, shoes,
hats, nails, farming implements, wa
gons, indeed everything he uses, has
gone up in price, and was before the
Payne-Aldrich tariff bill passed,crimi
nally high ? Regulate some of these
things if you please, you who are in
power, and do not put the whole in
creased cost of living on the farmer.
Regulate them and liviug will be

"Big Dan" as hi is called. It was by
a possee led by Dan that 18 people were
killed in that State one morning about
daylight in their beds. The U. S.
Court had granted a blanket injunc
tion ordering everybody to stay out of
a certain locality where some pet
mine owners had mines running which
had not been disturbed by strikers.
The men killed were striking miners
who started to march into that terri
tory and thus break one of the judge's
injunctions. Dan put 18 of them be- j
yond ability to march, and there was
never anything said about it.

Judge Glasgow seemed fully able to
state "The rule in Shelley's case." j
The reported speeches of several
speakers at the meeting of the members
of the Anti-saloon League in Richmond
during the week would indicate that
henceforth the race issue is to be a
prominent feature of their campaigns
as a sample of their utterances along
this line we quote the remarks of a dis
tinguished leader of their forces from
this city as reported in the Daily Lead
"Prof C. T. Jordan, of Staunton,
speaking for the Valley section assert
ed that he stood for Anglo-Saxon su
premacy and the rule of right.
Because of the operation of saloons
in certain parts of the State he said we
do not have Anglo-Saxon supremacy.
In Staunton two years ago and in Roan
oke this year a majority of the white
Bple voted against the saloon, and
tuoke is today under the domina
lof the negro, because it was this
t that decided conditions under
which Anglo-Saxons must live." |
In the light of recent political history,
this is a most remarkable statement
coming from the recognized leader of
the temperance forces in this section, j
Can it be that this is the same "Prof.
C. T. Jordan, who just two brief years
ago worked up a monster temperance
rally here, and who appeared on the
speaker's platform, in company with
the distinguished speaker of the even
ing, to-wit. One a Mr. Clay, of the
beautiful city of Bristol, Virginia, prob
ably the most gifted orator that ever
espoused the cause of "Anglo-Saxon
supremacy before a Staunton audience.
Now, it was rumored at the time that
the Anglo-Saxon blood of "Mr. Clay"
was a little shy, that his complexion
was rather a dark gingerbread color,
indicating that he was a member of
this negro race which now stands out
as such a menace to the future plans of
Mr. Jordan. Mr. Clay made such a
deep impression on his managers that
after great pressure of a certain kind
was brought to bear he remained over
for a second oveflow meeting the fol
lowing night and was at the polls to
help the Prof, line up the Anglo-Saxons
on election day.
A very large per centage of the negro
voters of this city cast their votes for
local option at that election, and later
at the recent election when the city
voted dry a large number of negro vo
ters stood as the loyal allies of Mr. Jor
dan and his co-workers casting some
fifty or sixty dry votes when the city
only gave a majority of twenty, and if
eleven of those negro votes had been
lost to the other side defeat would have
I overtaken his forces.
Did noi Mr. Jordan frequently confer
with negro leaders as to the support of
the negro vote ? Did he not constant
ly make appeals for their help and sup
port, and now that they have furnish
ed him the votes and as his faithful
allies enabled his forces to win the vic
tory, does he not display rather a pe
culiar form of gratitude when he en
deavors in a State meeting to bring for
ward the race issue to inflame the minds
of men with the old scare-crow, "ne
On the very night of the recent elec
tion, it is reported that at the street
celebration held after the vote was an
nounced, that Mr. Jordan, and his col
ored co-worker, John F. Harris, spoke
from the same box on Main street. —
Old Dominion Sun, Jan. 28.
Since the foregoing article was pub
lished, Mr. Jordan has replied to it
through the Leader. The reply, how
ever, is disappointing, in that he does
not deny he is against the negro, ia
the sense, Anglo-Saxon supremacy
means, S# hicli is the only controversy
between him and the Sun. Nor does
he attempt to deny that he intended
in his Richmond speech to desire and
| declare for all that Anglo-Saxon su
premacy must mean, which is no mor?
nor less than that such emasculation
of the negro must take place as will
strip him of power and voice in a
white man's government. Either what
Mr. Jordan said in Richmond means
this or nothing. There is in Anglo-
Saxon supremacy little of the good ne
gro, or the bad negro, as we understand
it. Color is the criterion. Tne reply,
therefore was sadly disappointing,
since it is almost wholly taken up with
the personal characteristics of the edi
tor of the Sun, his love for office, and
his efforts to Lily White his own par
ty, subjects positively without bearing
on Mr. Jordan's Richmond speech, no
matter how interesting they may be
otherwise. We do not regret that he
has "cussed" the Old Dominion Sun.
We only regret he has not discussed
the reasons for demanding the aboli
tion of the negro as a factor in our gov
ernment, because they seemed a littlt
I while ago to be dominant in his mind,
and must have been suggested by some
occurrence of more than ordinary mo
ment, and desired for reasons very con
j vincing to him at the Anti-Saloon
j League convention.

A NEW DIPLOMAT.
We have been reading with some in
terest the various biographical sketch
es of the Hon. Richard C. Kerens our
new ambassador to Austro-Hungary.
It seems that Mr. Kerens was once a
stable boy. He at one time curried the
horses, polished the carriages and did
chores about the barn of the late Sena
[ tor Rice of Arkansas. Mr. Kerens was
then called Dick. He was fresh from
Ireland and had lived in the same cab
in with the pig over there, and had
[ mopped salt with raw potatoes out of
a hole cut in a log. Dick was born
where the stones wore plentiful and
the soil scarce, and where school
houses were few and far between. But
he was a good stable boy. He respond
ed promptly with "Aye, aye, sir,"
when his employer called, his brogue
pleased and he was looked on as a
smart lad. "Hostler Dick" was known
all'round. Somehow Dick got into
the Yankee army. He "fought"
against the South. He was a brave
| soldier, and now draws a pension. His
war record consists in his having driv
en an army wagon pulled by 4 mules.
Only a brave man could face such
dangers. After driving the mules and
conquering the South he went West.
Here he got "profitable" mail con
tracts. These came about the time of
the celebrated Star Route transactions.
Then he met the Honorable Stephen
B. Elkins. The residue need not be
written. Mr. Kerens is a rich man.
He is no longer "Dick" Kerens. He is
the Hon. Richard C. Kerens. He lives
B Louis in winter and at Elkins, j
a., in summer, where he has a
al country place. He claims to

[ Speaker Byrd Extending Scope of
11 the Famous Byrd Bill.
, A Richmond dispatch says: Ex
, tending slightly the zone of absolute
j prohibition, eliminating the near-beer
section, prohibiting saloons within a
certain number of feet of institutions
i of learning and adding to the qualifi
b cations of the person to whom the
! license to sell intoxicating liquors is
issued, Speaker Richard Evelyn Bryd
has introduced in the House a bill
- amending and re-enacting the far
- famed Byrd liquor law of 1908.
t While this bill is of secondary im
portance, in the minds of the legisla
tors, to the measures referring to the
\ revenues of the State, it will arouse the
c greatest interest with the people at
i large. This is true because in all pro
bability it is the bill which will per
haps with amendments pass the Gen
eral Assembly and be the law of the
. State for the next two years. It is the
1 final word on the subject on the part
B of the Speaker, who led the forces of
f temperance at the last session, ana
j wrote the Byrd bill on the statute
gportant changes in the exisit
is indicated above, are four
ST. First, it provides that no
to sell intoxicating liquors
ssued in towns of less than
j one thousand population. The existing
; law in this respect applies to towns of
a less than five hundred people. This
c part of the bill, it is understood, will
j affect only one town in the State,there
j being at present only one place between
c 500 and 1,000 people which has a sa
f loon, and the town in question has
j only one.
, Secondly, the near-beer section is cut
% out entirely. There will be hereafter
s no law under which manufacturers of
c beer with small fractional amounts of
f alcohol can sell their product in dry
f I communities. The law as to the sate
j of cider is modified only slightly.
4 In the third place, the bill prohibits
3 a saloon within 400 feet of any school,
s college or university in the State.
r | Lastly, it provide* that the person
_ to whom license is issued must be only
0 a citizen and qualified voter in the
c community, but must pay taxes on
| either real or personal property.
f That there will be opposition to this
c bill in committee and on the floor of
the House there can be little doubt. It
' f is believed, however, that at the end of
1 1 the scrimmage the Speaker will be at
I the top with his bill made law.
a An important change in the bill is
1 that increasing the taxation on liquor.
t | The standing of social clubs, holding
a them down to territory where liqor is
c | licensed, remains the same. .
