NEW COURTHOUSE
HAS BEEN VETOED
Sentiment of People Against
It?Road Matters Settled
Other Business
The Hoard of Supervisors held a
l-itgely attended and important meet?
ing Tuesday. Several questions of im.
portance and interest to the county
were discussed and passed upon. The
committee appointed to recommend
changes in the courthouse, considered
absolutely necessary, submitted a sup?
plementary report, which stated,
among other things, that it nppears
that the sentiment of the people is
against the building of a new court?
house, and that in view of that fact,
certain recommendations are made to
meet immediate demands:
"First: We recommend that the
roof of the courthouse should be re?
paired, or renewed, which ever may
be necessary.
"Second: "We recommend that an
additional vault room be provided for
the preservation of the papers of the
county, in which enn be placed all of
the papers that arn not in current
use, and thus leave the present vaults
for the use of current papers, and
which we think would be ample for
that purpose.
"Your committee suggests that the
construction of said vault room could
be mnde by the removal of the south
wall of the present vault of the Cir?
cuit Court Clerk's Office, so as to in?
clude in the vault a portion of the
room now used by the Board of Sup?
ervisors for their meetings, and your
committee is of the opinion that by
thus removing this wall, and thus en?
larging t hin vault, that there will
then bo sufficient vault room for the
preservation of all the papers of the
county.
"Third: Your committee recom?
mends that an independent heating
plant be installed in the basement of
the present courthouse, of sufficient
capacity to heat the courtroom and all
of the oliices of said building.
"Fourth: Your committee .recom?
mends that there bo constructed in
the basement of the courthouse, or in
such other part of the building as
may be bpst ndapted for the purpose,
or on the outside, adjoining the build?
ing, sufficient toilets and lavatories
for the use of the building, both for
men and women, the two being con?
structed separately and apart from
eacli other.
"Your committee believes that
when the four items of repair nbove
suggested have heen completed that
the present courthouse will be nmple
for the necessities of the county for
years to come, and that the arrange?
ment above suggested will mnke the
building suitable and convenient for
the purpose for which it. is intended,
and that these repairs can be mnde
by the expenditure of a few thousand
dollars, and thus snve the people of
the county trom an increase of the
burden of taxation.
"Since your committee has ascer?
tained the sentiment of the public as
above indicated, it now reports that
the foregoing repairs will meet with
the approval of the sentiment of the
county, and will be sufficient for the
purposes of the county above stated."
The following resolution was offer?
ed by Supervisor Daniels, and passed
the Board:
"At a meeting of the Board of
Supervisors held at Tnzewell Co'irt- I
house on the 15th day of October,
1912, it is ordered that an oxpert
accountant be secured to go over tho
payrolls of the county road work and
report to the board the amouit of
money spent, (results obtained),
what per cent of the peoples' money
is being paid tor engineers, foremen,
etc., and what per cent., is being
paid for labor in actual construction
of roads in the county, und what per
cent of new location of roads made by
the State Highway Commission in
the preliminary surveys hud been
adopted by the construction engineer,
and what per cent thereof has been
rejected,, and the estimated cost of
surveying rejected.
It is further ordered that the en?
gineers in charge of road work fur?
nish this Bonrd with a list of all
salaried employees, foremen, over
seers, the character of work done,
the wages recieved by each.
It is further ordered that no en?
gineers, superintendents, foremen,
overseers or other salaried men shall
be employed in any Maigisterial dis?
trict or salary fixed without the ap?
proval of the Supervisor of such dis?
trict.
The attention of the road engineer
is called to the fact that some sec?
tions of road are being constructed
without the use of grado atakes, and
also that some of the plants have
been idle for several weeks on ac?
count of lack of grade and supplies.
An agreement was reached regard?
ing the road plants in Jeffersonville
district. The plant on the Fincastle
road near town, as soon as that road
is completed, which will bo only a
short time, will be moved to the Cav
itt's Creek road; the plant on the
Wilt' os Mills toad, as soon as the
work there is finished, w ill he moved
to the North Tazewell rond, and the
plant in West JelTcrsonville district
will be moved at once to Thompson
Valley. Thus work will he done in all
suctions, and everybody will recieve
the hcnefits therefrom.
The following order of agreement
was made between Mr. Daniels and
Mr. I.ee:
"The local road board shall design
the section of roads to be built and
after tho mnchinry hns once been lo?
cated or such section, it shall not be
moved therefrom until that section
has i ither been completed or its pro
rata amount of bond issue money
spent thereon. It being understood
that where it can be shown that time
and money enn be saved by building
macadam on branch roads from the
plant as located on any of said sec?
tions it may be done."
The Continental Development and
Investment Company, the Ohio cor?
poration recently granted the right to
uso the roads between Tazewell and
Graham for constructing a car line,
was granted the right to use the roads
from the northern corporate limits of
the town of Graham via Falls Mills
to the corporate limits of the town of
Pocahontas.
Tnnnersville
Tannersvillc, Oct 1.?The Sunday
Schools of this place and Little Val?
ley, have been ably Superintended by
Mr. S. B. Wyatt?the one in Little
Valley at 10 a. in., and here, al
Crabtree's Chapel at 3 p. m. The in?
terest, instead of flagging, as the
summer advanced as the - gained
steadily?till on last. Saturday, Oct.
12, the two schools met in a joint
picnic, or entertainment, which your
correspondent will endeavor to de?
scribe briefly. The schools met nt
Crabtree's Chapel, where the church
was beautifully decorated in ever?
green, autumn leaves and flowers.
The pupils of both Bchools wore
badges of red and brown, while those
of the Superintendent and teachers
were solid red.
The church was filled to over-flow?
ing?the children occupying the front
seats. The exercises were opened by
singing, followed by a short prayer
by Rev. Mr. King, pastor of the
Methodist church on the Tazewell Cir?
cuit. Next on the program was an
excellent address by Mr. King?then
came tho recitations by the "littlo
folks" interspersed with appropriate
songs, which were led by Mr. Wiley
Oilman. When tho morning exercises
were over the schools were treated
by Mrs. S. B.JWyatt, after which they
formed in line, and marched and
sang, being led by the Superintend?
ent, waving a white flag bordered by
red and blue, on which were the
words: "All Hail the power of Jesus
Nnmo".They inarched out and around
the church to where a long table, un?
der a spreading oak tree, was bounti?
fully heaped with" good things to
eat".
After dinner had been served, the
church was again filled with people,
and Mr. II. H. Cook, from Chatham
Hill, gave another fine address on
Sunday Schools?then just be?
fore the hour for dispersing the
schools assembled in front of the
church, where the picture wqs made
by Mr. Clay, a traveling photograph?
er. Thus ended the day hut not the
schools, for they are still in progress,
looking forward now, to the 27, the
day on which Mr. J. A. Leslie has
promised to make "A few feeble re?
marks", eh? One of tho notable
features of the day was the good be?
havior. One who was present.

Charles Wilson, colored, who broke
jail here with three other negroes
several months ago, and Harry Will?
iams, a member of the gang of nine
I prisoners who broke jail a few weeks
I ago, were all given sentences in
jail, by Squire George W. Patton
Monday. The charge against them
was that of being a party to the de?
livery in each instance. Williams con?
fessed and was given five months in
jail; Wilson refused to confess and
was given seven months. Williams
made a clean breast of tho whole
affair. He stated the saws wcro got
tenn to them by some one from the
outside, who pitched them through
the bars of the window. The first
effort of the party outside was un
aucessful, according to Williams, the
bundle of snws striking the bars and
falling back to the ground. He stated
the party who g">t the saws to th"
prisoners committed the act about
dark on the night previous to the de?
livery.

Wise County Starts The Ball
to Rolling?Meet In Bristol
On 21st of October.
Norton, Vn., Oct. 15. ? During
th?? speaking on yesterday, Mr. J. P.
Uullitt, of Big Stone Gap, announced
that lie had a plan to present for the
purpose of securing fair elections in
the Ninth district, nnd requested all,
regardless of their politics, to remain
I after the speaking. When the spenk
ing closed, Judge Ii. A. W. Skcen
was elected chairman of the meeting
and Judge G. W. Kilgore wns elected
Secretary.
Thereupon Mr. Uullitt presented
to the meeting his plan, which was
in substance as follows:
That a meoting should bo called in
Bristol at an early dntc of ?11 citizens
interested in fair elections regardless
of their pnrty aflillintions; that a
permanent organization should bo
formed with a President for the whole
district, and a vice-president in each
county, and perhaps an executive
committee in each county, and that
nil at tho meeting who favored the
movement should by asked to sign n
pledge in substance ns follows below,
and and that the executive officers of
the Association should also send this
pledge broadcast throughout tho dis?
trict, and endeavor to get as many
signatures thereto in every voting
precinct ns possible. The pledge pro?
posed is as follows:
"We, tho undersigned, by signing
this paper, hereby become members
of the Fair Elections Society of the
Ninth Concessional district of Vir?
ginia, and as such we tnutally pledge)
ourselves ns follows:
1? ?-We will not subscribe or give
any money or other thing of value to
any campaign fund in any election
whatever, except for legitimate nnd
lawful campaign expenses.
2? We will not ourselves knowing-1
ly violate any election law of the|
United States or the State of Vir?
ginia, and we will whenever practi
cable nttend the polls at every elect?
ion and do what we reasonably can
to have the same conducted in accord?
ance with law, and to discover any
violations of law which any ono may
be guilty of, and that we will report
all such violations of Inw to the pro
Iper heads of this society ; and there?
after, in case of prosecution of such
offense, to do all that we properly
can in nid thereof.
3? Wo hereby subscribe the
amounts set opposite our names re?
spectively to defray the expenses of
said Society, the same to be payable
at once to the treasurer of the so?
ciety."
Mr. Uullitt further explained that
of course, this plan nnd pledge Wufl
only tentative, und offered merely as
as suggestions, and that the meeting
in Bristol, after hearing discussion,
would doubtless make changes both
in the plan nr.d in the pledge. The
question was fully debated, n number
of Democrats nnd Republicans a nd
Progressives taking part therein, and
finally upon the vote being put the
fed lowing resolution was unanimous?
ly adopted, nnd was afterwards sign
eel by practically everybody present,
Democrats, Republicans and Progress
ivess:
"Resolved that we, the undersign?
ed, herbey request and ur?e all citi?
zens of tho Ninth Congressional dis?
trict of Virginia, regardless of their
policies, who are interested in fair
elections, and especially in prevent?
ing the purchase and sale of votes, to
meet at Bristol on the 21st day of
October, 1912, at two o'clock., p.m.,
for the purpose of perfecting a per?
manent organization to bo known as
the "Fair Election Society of the
Ninth Congressional District of Vir?
ginia," and for discussing tho best
methods of securing fair elections in
the coming and all future elections,
and of adopt ine practicable plans to
carry out these ends;
Resolved, further, that the chair
] man nppoint a committee of three to
be known as the executive committee
of this movement, to hold office until
the meeting nt Bristol is organinzed,
and whose duty it shall be to fully
iadvertise the meeting hereby called,
I and to make all arrangements there?
for.
Resloved further that said execut?
ive committee secure the signatures
hereto of all persons present, who
favor this movement."
Judge Skeen thereupon appointed
J. F. Bullltt, Democrat; Howard 0.
Miller, Democrat and editor of tho
Wise Virginian, and R. V. Wohlford,
Republican, Treasurer of Wise county,
the executive committee. These
gentlemen are taking the matter up
actively, and believe thoro will be a
large attendance at Bristol.

VIRGINIA, FRIDAY, OC1
Vital Statistics Law
Richmond, Vu., Oct. 1G, 1912.
Special)?Paul T" Jeanrenaud of
Newpurt News is probably the im.st
ardent champion in Virginia of the
new vital statistics law,for the very
good reason that the enactment of
this statute hns saved him anil his
family an estate in Switzerland which
otherwise they would have lost.
Indeed, judging from his corre?
spondence with the Stnte Hoard of
Health, Mr. Jennernaud seems to
think that the General Assembly of
Virginia enacted this law to save him
from loss at the very time he most
needed legal assistance.
A naturalized Amerclenn citizen
and a prosperous business man, Mr.
Jeanrcnaud received notice during
the spring that his grandfather had
rlied in Switzerland and had left to
him and his brothers and sisters a
considerable estate. All that he had
to do was to ptovo his relationship
to the dead man. For himself and his
hrohers who had been born in Swit?
zerland, this was easy, as their births
were duly recorded in the canton-reg?
ister. Hut Mr. Jeanrcnaud had a
young sister born in America, whose
birth, in the absence of any lnw, had
not been legally recorded. Unfortu?
nately, too, the girl's mother was
dead and tho physician who had been
present at the child's birth had aim
died.
This seemed to remove tho last
hope of getting the estate, for in?
numerable legal difficulties would
arise where the title of all the heirs
cold not be established. Just nt the
time Mr. Jeanrenaud was giving up
hope, ho saw the that new vital sta?
tistics law had been passed and that
it was possible to record the birth of
any one born before tho enactment of
the law, provided legal proofs of
birth could be produced. On id. to see
the possibility thus afforded him, Mr.
Jeanrenaud nt once began a search fur
tho nurse who had attended his mother
nt the birth of his sister. The nurse,
as it happened, had moved from Vir?
ginia and her whereabouts were not
known. Mr. Jeanrenaud began a na?
tion-wide search and finally, when he
was despairing of success, heard that
the nurse wns practicing her profes?
sion in Florida. He located her at
last and had her nie with the State
Hoard of Health a legal statement of
the birth of his sister. This was
found to be in proper form and was
accepted by the State.
As if by maige, Mr. Jcanienaud's
difficulties were obviated anil his
claim established. He had only to
procure a legal copy of the certificate
of birth and fotwrnd it to the proper
Swiss authorities. He expects, in the
course of a few days, to receive the
full amount of the estate and, in the
meantime, blesses the General As?
sembly of Virginia, while wondering
why the enactment of such a neces?
sary law was so long delayed.
(irnnd Jury Would Not Indict Mini
Tho reports which have appeared
in the pnpers with reference to the
killing of M. E. Esser by Samuel
Hawkins, of Tazewell, appear to
hnve been misleading and exaggerat?
ed. The shooting occrurrcd at Gary
about two o'clock Sunday morning,
Hawkins being charged with the
crime by three Hungarians. Hawkins,
Mr. Esser and a Mr. Johnson were
nt the point where tho tragedy oc?
curred to preserve order, a Hungarian
dance being in progress. The shooting
occurred, and three Hungarians, who
were disturbing the peace, were re?
monstrated with to be quiet. The
three officers wore in the act of ar?
resting them, when the shooting oc?
curred. The coroner's inquest at Gary
layed tho murder to Hawkins, but tne
grand jury, which was in session nt
Welch, refused to lind an indictment
against Hawkins. Mr. Harns Gillespie
went to Welch Tuesday, and after a
thorough investigation, is thoroughly
satisfied of the innocence of Hawkins.
It is thought that the crime was
committed by one of the trio of Hun?
garians. It was stated that there was
absolutely no motive for the crime,
in so far as Hawkins was concerned,
and that he and Esser were on friendly
terms.

Headquarters Ninth District Pro?
gressive I'ntty. Rudford, Vs., Oct.
:t. 1012.
Tho following statement goes out
today from Nnilh District Progressive
Party Headquarters:
"The only way to prevent the
Ninth district from ecoing Demo?
cratic Ih for Klomp nnd his followers
to endorse nnd suppott the Progress?
ive pnrty ticket?Roosevelt, Johnson
und <Indium.
"Slemp in gone. Enough votes nnd
pledges already to Graham to make
the defeat of Slemp certain, Slemp
nnd his machine know this and if they
persist in their course of ignoring the
demand of the Progressives, express?
ed by formally nominating Walter
Graham as their candidate for con?
gress on tho Progressive pnrty ticket,
with Roosevelt nnd Johnson, they
know by their deliberate act they are
turning the Ninth district over to the
Democrats. The Progressives, Re?
publicans nnd Domonernts nil know
this. The Progressives have persist ?
LMitly dcclarod they would not veto
for Slemp, liefere and since tho llris
tol convention.
"The Progressive pnrty, through
the State committee, urge nil Pro?
gressives in the Ninth district to vote
for the Roosevelt presidential elect?
ors nnd for Walter Graham, the Pro?
gressive nominee for congress. This
is tlie answer to Slemp's statement
that the Progressives nre supporting
them. Thousands are pledged to sup?
port Roosevelt, Johnson and Graham,
nnd, as they learn the truth, nre
joining tho true Progressives and will
vote for Roosevelt and Graham, there?
by denouncing Slemp, who trieil to
shut Roosevelt out.
'The National Progressive organiza?
tion, witti tho State nnd Ninth dis?
trict, repudiate Slemp. He has knifed
Theodor)! Roosevelt nnd is now knif?
ing Tuft nnd begging for the Pro
Kressivo veto.
"What the people demand of Slemp
is that be with-drnw nnd support the
people's candidates ?
"Theodore Roosovclt for president ;
Hiram W. Johnson for vico-presi
ilont; Walter Graham for congrrsss.
Thin is the ticket of Roosevelt nnd
the Progressive pnrty.
Having tricked the people, tho only
thing left for Slemp to do, if ho
would have tho poople preserve a
shndow of respect for his memory, is
for him to accede to the known wishes
of the people nnd support thoir ticket;
Roosevelt, Johnson and Graham. If
he does not do this, he must bear tho
blame of turning the Ninth district
ovor to the Democrats, when his bo
troyal of the Ninth will be complete.
"Tho postmuster editor of theGro
hnm News, it seems, tins devised the
desperate policy for Slemp of knifing
Tnft and begging for tho Roosevelt
vote. Tho Progressives nre for Roose?
velt and Graham, their truu leaders.
"The Rev. J. N. Harman stntca
that Slemp is a Progressive. Slemp
is not a Progressive. He knifed
Roosevelt nnd tricked tho Progress?
ives. If ho were a Progressive he
would support the ticket; Roosevelt,
Johnson nnd Graham. He is not even
a Republican Ho Is knifing Tnft
now to get the Roosevelt veto he be?
trayed.
"Slemp admits that he is not a
good congressman, but a money
maker. Slemp voted ond worked for
his coal lands and not for tho people.
"If be frankly admits now that he
has for the past five years neglected
his duty to his constituency in order
to attend to his private atfuirs, what
assurance havo tho people that he will
not again hctrav them for personal
gain?
"It is false that Slemp can carry
the Ninth against the Democrats. He
is los-ng the Ninth to the Democrats
by continuing to betray and thwart
the will of the poople. He is himself
already defeated by the people. For
this reeii.-.on he should withdraw.
"Graham, the candidate for con?
gress in the Ninth district, is not de?
luded. He is the strongest Progressive
party man nnd supporter of Theodore
Roosevelt in the district. His en?
dorsement from his own town people
is in writing as it is from all over
the district, and by the State chair?
man and committee which is also en?
dorsed by the national committee,
and thousands are already enrolled as
j true Progressives in the Ninth dis
trict, pledged to the election of the
Progressive party ticket: Roosevelt,
Johnson and Graham. Slemp has but
a thin tissue of office holders behind
him. He is like a Spanish-Americi n

Whnt The Court house Needs
Editor the Newa:?The writer has
just read with Bomo degreo of care
the "Tho Courthouso Committees"
report favoring the construction of a
new county building. We noto that
among tho several suggested reasons
why we should have a now court?
houso, is ihe had condition, in a snn
itnry sense, existing, espcciinlly in
the basement of tho present building,
tins reminds ub of an amusing story
told in the presence of tho writer by
n bright and intelligent woman, n
citi/.on of tho "Groat Valley's prin?
ciple city:
"A country family becoming tired
of rural lifo decided to movo into
town. A rather too prevalent habit
nowadays, in view of the ^high cost
of living, nnd not being able or de
sirious of purchasing a home, they
proceeded to rent one. Now, this
family had a habit, which in our
ignorance, wo thought was peculiar
only to the legal custodians of public
buildings, such as courthouses, etc.,
of allowing such vast accumulations
of inevitable debris, dust, dirt, nnd
all manner of filth and rubbish to
remain undisturbed in all of the dark
closets, corners, and along the walls,
and especially in tho basements, un?
til the house became no longer habit?
able, when, like our committee, they
proceeded to look up now quarters.
Finally, and aftor a considerable
lapse of time, involving many re?
moves, and for reasons already noted,
and for which they found it difficult
to secure new qunrters; bo in a close
search for a homo they ran across the
owner of their first abandoned domi?
cile. Finding him ready and anxious
for a trade, not having had a tenant,
owing to existing conditions, since
they had left, and as nothing better
was in sight, a bargain was soon
struck and in they moved. Finding
themselves confronted with the same
old filthy conditions that had once
forced them to seek pastured new, and
our lady friend added that their next
neighbors reported that perhaps for
the first time in their experience, the
whole family entered Into as vigorous
n campaign and completo house clean?
ing be as they were capable of or?
ganizing.
Moral: Would not our courthouse
committee, supervisors, court officials
and all in authority, find it better to
organize, at and at once have a
thorough house cleaning and complete
renovation of the present building
than to resort to imposing an addit?
ional burden upon the patient tax?
payers of the county, who, alreadv
loaded with vitally important work
of getting themselves out of the mud
by the construction and improvement
of the county system of' highways, e
work most nocoBRnry to inter coin
morcinl naaociatlon, bringing neigh
Iioth together und in onay reach of the
county's innrke h. This work Ib of
practical ncccttHity to nil the people
and will bring each and all ample re?
turns, Instead of an additional burden.
This iH the greatest work now heforo
Tnzowcll people, and right hrnvely
are they bracing up to it, and they
should not allow thomselvoH to be
diverted. To unnecessarily Increase
burdens now, under existing condi?
tions, woidd ho little short of reck?
lessness. Like tho man who puts nil
