"IS ST A SIN TO
ACCEPUfFICE?"
"Millennium" Article Provokes "A
Democrat'' lo Speak Cut in Open
Meer'ng.
February 11, 1913.
Editor Clinch Valley News:
So the "Millennium" has come
in Tazewell, Republicans and
Democrats, like Lion and Lamb,
are lving down together!
The fir?t column of the first
page of your last week's issue
contained these startling head?
lines, and it may be that thoi;<.
who do not know, and who are
net familiar with the "Inner
circle" of the Democratic arenn
in Tazewell county, would be?
lieve that you, or some member
of your staff, had written Ihir
great excorium of present day
politics, but when the article is
given close inspection and con?
sidered with some knowledge of
past and present, happenir.-.' in
this great,"Innere irele" between
certain favored members of the
Democratic county committee,
one may readily see the ear
marks of two or three of the
gentlemen who have been, and
are now, the chief actors, fur?
nishing wisdom and entertain?
ment for their few supporters
and sympathizers, without re?
garding or considering what
may be best for the success and
elevation of the Democratic
party in this county. No Mr.
Editor, while your generosity
haa stood a strong test in thus
assuming responsibility and
authorship of this masterly
peroration on politics and the
pie-counter, you have not de?
ceived the reading and thinking
public into believing you to be
the originator of such an un
orthordox vision of the'' millen?
nium". But Mr. Editor, as you
have assumed, or will allow
yourself lo be charged with be?
ing its author, I know you will
not refuse to give space in your
valuable paper to this feeble
epistle, not ' to the "Romans",
but to the "Bosses", neverthe
less, and will answer a few
questions that naturally will
arise in a discussion of the "mil?
lennium", and the probable birth
of the idea that has brought
about such Utopean results in^|
this day and time of social,
political and industrial strife,
that the "Lion and the Lamb"
may lie down together in com?
plete safety and accord, and en?
joy their peaceful slumber, that
a hungry appetite, after a post
office, can secuw,, when one has
gotten, and while he is eating,
the pie. The only serious menace
to this heavenly dream, is oc?
casioned, because unfortunately,
there are not enough postoffiees
to go round and the ones who
can eat pie are liable to create
discord and stir up strife, just
in order to show us that the
"millennium" has not come,
dough we have made considc r
able headway in reaching that
goal by electing Woodrow V\ il
son. And that reminds me, A
B. Buchanan was the only one
of the applicants for the Tazc
well postoffice pie that wanted
Mr. Wilson instructed to bake
it, but that is neither here nor
there. I am digressing from my
subject. I started out to ask you
' to tell us Democrats, when the
"Lion and the Lamb" began
the negotiations for this great
peace treaty and a pie-counter
division? Has it been so very re?
cent, or was it in the fall''of
1911, when . the Democratic
county committee, through its
chairman, issued a circular letter
to the Democratic voters of this
county, and scattered it broad
cast, calling upon them to vote
for C. W. Greever, a Republican
candidate for Clerk, after that
committee had violated all pre?
cedent and every rule of the
Democratic party policy and had
cast aside one Democratic as
pi rant for the State Senate and
had elevated another, without a
submission to the party, and in
the face of the protest of the
party; that same committee
which decided to let no Demo?
crat sacrifice himself in the in?
terest of his party, by contesting
for the county offices, though
there were many willing candi?
dates, and the chance to win
was never so good; that same
committee which allowed two or
' three of its members to fnrof S.
M. G
Cler
ham could have won. Was it not
then that the example was set?
Had the same gentlemen howled
then who are howling now, they
might, with much better effect,
and more consistency, enter a
protest against a Republican
Congressman securing the ap?
pointment of a Democrat to any
office. Now is it so great a sin
to receive an appointment to a
Federal office at the hands of a
Republican President? Did Chief
Justice White and other great,
true and tried Democrats, who
received appointments from
President Taft protest and re?
fuse to accept, and were their
appoinmmts challenged and
criticised by the Democrats of
thi i country? Certainly not. j
Then why so much noise, scandal
and infamy about Mr. Buch?
anan's appointment, and why
such condemnation of him be
cuase he is going to accept? Is it
sincere, or is it the selfish out
pourings of some disappointed
candidates for that office, and
the sympathetic wailings of his
c n freres, who have gone before
but whose sores are slow in
healing? Mr. Slemp knew and
Mr. Taft knew, that the ap?
pointment of a Republican could
never be confirmed. When the
vacancy occurred in the Taze
well office, it was not only the
President's privilege, but his
3uty lo appoint Mr. Pendleton's
iucessor, and knowing that only
Democrats could be confirmed
\c appointed Mr. Buchanan,
tfow is Mr. Buchanan to be con?
demned because he could use an
influence to secure that appoint?
ment that his opponents did not
iiavc? Certainly not, for we all
(now, not one of then would
lave refused the pie because it
was handed out on a platter in?
stead of a plate. Must a man's
Democracy and his fealty to his
party be questioned and slander
id, simply because a Republican
Congressman through a Repub
ican President, secures for him
:he appointment to an office that
lone but a Democrat can get?
Mow if Mr, Buchanan's Demo
;racy could be honestly ques?
tioned, and he was in reality a
Republican, but outwardly Cloth
?d in Democratic raimment, such
i howl might be accounted for
ind a just criticism should be
warded, but no such charge
:an be sustained and none has
jeen made. In this great county
)f Republican supremacy the
writer does not know a single
/oter by the name of Buchanan
vho votes any but the Demo
iratic ticket, and I am informed
.hat in the county of Smythe,
where about one hundred of the
lame are voters, and all his
cinsmen, that for the past
twenty-five years but one was
;ver known to vote the Repub
ican ticket, and the condemna?
tion and ostracism of his kindred
lecame so great, that he, with
lis family, went to a far coun?
try where he has long since been
forgotten. But all this counts
"or naught. Mr. Buchanan has
Totton the pie some one else
.bought was his, and which was
jadly wanted by another, and
'lo the poor Indian" his political
innihilation must be accomplish?
ed before his tormenters will be
satisfied, and they plan also to
Jespoil and rob him of his
possessions. Shall it be allowed,
in decency and fair play? Mr.
Editor, is it not the loss of the
office to your "Associate Editors"
of the article in question, that
constitutes the real grievance?
And if Mr. Buchanan through
his friends, did use an advantage
in obtaining the aid of a Repub?
lican Congressman and Presi?
dent, was he not justifiable in
doing so? What more could you
expect when the county commit?
tee turned down the petition and
will of 80 per cent of the Demo?
cratic voters and patrons of the
two offices of Tazewell and
North Tazewell, for a Demo?
cratic primary, to select by
Democratic votes, the postmas?
ters? Mr. Buchanan wanted a
primary and was willing to let
the Democratic voters and pa?
trons of the office of Tazewell
decide the question, and could
you blame him when this was
refused, to accept the appoint?
ment handed him by Mr. Taft,
I rather than leave his chances
and claims to the consideration
and recommendation of the
county committee, which con
taned, not only his opponents,
but a candidate for every ap?
pointive office in the county?
Did the candidates not on the
committee, stand an equal show,
before the committee, with the

TAZEWELL,
BETTER SCHOOLS
BADLY NEEDED
Children Have Not Advantages Here
That Are Offered by Poorer
Counties?Reason :? No Money.
C. A. Wagner in last issue of
this paper, makes a strong plea
for better schools in the country.
It is the same old question. How
to secure better schools in town
and country has been a question
for years and years, and the an?
swer has always been the same
?money. With money sufficient
a good school can be had any
liere one is needed. Without
money to build good houses and
pay good teachers we cannot ex?
pect good schools.
The trouble in the country is
a lack of money to employ
teachers. The result has been,
short terms and poorly equipped
teachers. If the towns have bet?
ter schools than the country it is
because, as a rule, the town
people have taxed themselves
supplemented the regular school
fund, and built houses and hired
teachers. Pocahontas, Graham,
and we believe Richlands and
Cedar Bluff have each made ap?
propriations necessary and
sufficient to furnish nine months
free High School advantages.
Tazewell does not. Tuition is
charged lor the High School in
this town the only town in the
State, so far as known to the
writer, where tuition in the
High School is not free. This
town has little advantage, so far
as higher studies are concerned,
over county schools. If children
are deprived of advanced studies
in the country because of in?
ability to pay tuition, the same
is true of a number of pupils in
this town. It is a lack of money.
The town and district does not,
for some reason, make the nec?
essary provisions, and so, a num?
ber of pupils are forced every
year to stop school when the
ordinary free school course is
completed, because their parents
are unable to pay a monthly
tuition. That the people in the
country desire better schools of
longer terms and of higher
grade, goes without . saying,
but how to get the money nec?
essary is another queston. Money
is hard to get. The Tazewell
High School is losing every day
for the want of another teacher,
but there seems to be no funds
available. How to get the money
is the question. Will Mr. Wagner
or some other clear headed
financier, turn his attention to
this phase of the subject?
There ought to be a great
campaign waged in this county
for better schools as was done
for good roads. There ought to
be a good school of high grade,
running for nine months in the
year, within reach of every boy
and girl in the county. How
shall it be secured?
all the party work for the past
decade, and you have already
heard them say, that party ser?
vice should be the first consider?
ation. This argument has its
merits, but not unless the issue
is left to an impartial tribunal,
and of such the county commit?
tee is not, I mean its dominating
members and influences. Now,
while it may be true that Mr.
Buchanan was not the Lamb
especially booked for this feast,
I fail to see where he has been
any more treacherous than
others, some of whom are now
howling such a doleful tune, and
I feel sure if his effort had not
landed the pie, the incident
would have passed unnoticed,
and, at most, would have met
with only a smile and no criti?
cism would have been tendered.
Had the county committee done
its duty to the party and freed
itself from personal influences
which now control it, and had
given to the Democratic voters
of the patrons of the Tazewell
postoffice the right to select
their postmaster, it would not
have been necessary for you,
Mr. Editor, to have published
the "Millennnium" article nor I
to write this letter, but instead
of the discord, now apparent,
there would have been harmony,
except perhaps a dismal moan
from one or two members of the
committee, who could not have
i secured a vote for the position,
and who know it only too well.
Mr'. Editor, we are informed
l that Senators Swanson and Mar
1 tin are being kept advised of
- the Tazewell situation and were
! furnished with copies of the last
- issue of your paper. Will you in
} equal kindnes? and fairnesi fur
i nish them with copies of this
1 issue, and by so doing you will
21 greatly oblige, A DEMOCRAT.

CONVICT FORCE FOR
I TAZEWELL ROADS
Maiden Spring Will Get The Camp
and Pay Difference to the Other
Districts?Doctors Fees Reduced.
The Board of Supervisors
Tuesday elosed (lie negotiations
for a convict camp to be brought
to the county about the last of
April. The camp will be estab?
lished in the west end of the
county, and as long as they re?
main there that district is to
pay the other two districts of
the county their pro rata of the
value of the convict labor. This
arrangement ia thought to be
better than scattering the camp,
which will be composed of about
sixty men. in different sections
of the county. The other dis?
tricts will employ free labor, and
will receive an additional sum of
money from the west end dis
t riet to apply to the roads.
The work will be begun at the
Maiden Spring district line, in
the Cove, and will be pushed
west about eleven miles.
The supervisors adopted the
following schedule of allowances
to physicians for services ren?
dered the poor at request of
Overseer of the Poor is hereby
adopted, the amount for each
visit being based on the number
of miles traveled by such
physician:
One mile, $1.00; two miles,
|1.60; three miles, $1.7.r>; four
miles, '2.00; live miles, 2.50; six
miles, 2.75; seven miles, 3.25;
eight, miles, 8.76; nine miles,
4.26; ten miles, 5.00.
In no case shall the allowance
exceed $6.00 per visit, except
the Hoard of Supervisors may,
in its discretion, under special
?ircunistances, make an addi?
tional allowance.

MR. ELLYSON SAYS
COMMITJEIS RIGHT
Acted Properly in Refusing to Call
Primary to Settle Postoffice Diff?
erences for the Two Towns.
A few days ago a member of
the County Democratic Commit?
tee w rote Hon. J, Taylor Ellyson
giving an outline of the many
iconstructions which had been
put on his letter of Nov. 23,
1912, to the Clinch Valley News
in regard to holding "primaries"
to determine candidates for the
various post offices to be tilled in
this county by the incoming ad?
ministration. The committee
man closed his letter to Mr.
Ellyson as follows: "Personally,
1 construed your letter to mean
that where all the applicants for
office where a postmaster is to
be appointed agree to submit
their ( hums to a vote of the
patrons of said office, you saw
no object ion to the "primary"
plan. Please let me hear from
you." Here is Mr. Ellyson'o
reply to Col. .1. B. Hover:
Dear sir: Your letter of
January ,'HUh received. You cor?
rectly interpret the meaning of
my letter. The parly organiza?
tion as such has nothing what?
ever to do with determining
who shall be endorsed for Feder?
al positions. Democrats seeking
positions under the Federal
Government, who wish to decide
among themselves by a primary,
who ??hall receive the exclusive
indorsation for any particular
office, may enter into such an
arrangement, and if those who
shall conduct Democratic pri?
maries voluntarily con. ent to act
in such?a primary as is suggest?
ed, they can, of course do so,
but where there was such di?
vision as is apparent from a
newspaper article you enclosed
me, I think the committee acted
wisely in declining to take any
part in such a primary,
Yours very truly.
.1. TAYLOR ELLYSON,
Chairman.
It appears from Mr. Ellyson's
reply that, it is not within the
province or duty of the county
committee as such, to meet and
endorse any candidates for
Federal appoinments.

Rev. Thomas II. Campbell is
fond of walking. He made the

however, "Walking is good" now
that the new roads are built..

her school one Friday afternoon.
There is no exercise more
pleasant or healthful than walk?
