Haven't we been telling the Lynch

democratic leadership and democratic |
meth.-ds in the Ninth discrict were and ]
ar?- rotten and dishon? st? Haven't
the m two democratic newspapers, erst?
while bitter foes, now joined hands in
an unholy effort to make their honest
democratic readers believe that their
; arty ?? aders in this district are honest
and clean? Haven't we been telling all
our readers, democrats as well as re?
publicans, that the democratic leaders
have become so dishonest that they will
cheat each other when necessary or con?
venient, just as they have been taught
to cheat and rob republicans on all oc?
casions? Haven't we proved that the
political crooks who have engineered all
the schemes of fraud in this district
agaiust republican candidates for the
past fifteen or twenty years are still
kept in position to do their dishonest
work?both against republicans and re?
bellious democrats? Now comes from
democratic sources undeniable proof
that our charges are true.
At the meeting of the democrats of
Tasenrell county on the 14th instant it
was charged that corrupt means had
been cr were being used to secure a
pocket delegation from Tazewell county
to the Norfolk convention. That accu?
sation wr>s fiercely resented by the ma?
chine leaders. The following letter
from the notorious Jim Stone, addressed
to Mr. G. W. Doak, was published in the
C::nch Valley News of the 17th instant:
Slate Corporation Commission.
Mineral Land Assessment.
James A. Stone, Assistant Assessor.
Bristol, Va., April 17, 1912.
Mr. G. W. Doak,
Dear Mr. Doak: ?I have just returned
from Washington, and had a conference
with a num't er of our democratic
friends, and they are extremely hopefu
?in fact, confident,?that we will eleel
a democratic President, if we do noi
make a m 13take and nominate the wrong
man. It is argued that the proper thing
for Virginia to do is to send an unin
structed delegation to Baltimore, and i
we want to win, it is absolutely thi
thing to do. Of course, if we want ti
nominate a man that happens to sui
our particular fancies and run the thinj
through on the lines that we have fo
the la9t sixteen years, then we migh
nominate almost any good talker an
proceed to get "licked."
1 wish you would please advise m
fuily the situation in your county. I
>(.-.? think it will be possible to work u
an uninstructed delegation, please ac
lies, 1 would also like to know if, i
working up this delegation, you thin
T.e legitimate expense might b
incurred, to a small amount, to abec
lately secure this result, and if so, t
indicate about what amount you thin
?I would be.
Please treat this letter strictly conf
dential end let me hear from you full
by return mail.
Yours very truly,
JAS CB. J. A. STON1
There appeared in the Bristol H eral
Courier of the 15th instant the follov
"James A. Stone received a tele?
gram Tee-: lay evening from Taze
well county giving the result of the
democratic mass convention held at
Tazewell Tuesday to select dele?
gates to the convention to be held
at Norfolk May 23rd. The conven?
tion instructed its delegates to vote
for an uninstructed delegation to
the Baltimore convention.
"Mr. Stone has kept up with the
action of the various counties of the
Ninth district at the mass conven?
tions. Out of the 111 votes from
the Ninth district ninety-three of
them are instructed in favor of
sending an uninstructed delegation
to the Baltimore convention."
So, it seems, that Jim Stone, und
orders from Washington, has been kee
ing "up with the action" of the dem
cratic mass conventions in the Nint
The promptness with which he receiv
the telegram from Tazewell announcii
the result here proves that he has n
only kept up with but that he has be?
successfully controlling the actions
these meetings in the Ninth.
A worthy citizen of our town remar
ed to us: "What sort of a man is tl
fellow, Jim Stone, who writes such 1?
ters on paper furnished by the Comme
wealth with I he printed head of t
State Corporation Commission theron?"
We replied: "It is because he is that
sort of man that a position was created
for him that pays three thousand dol?
lars a year. And it is because he is
that sort of a man tbat he has been
selected to keep up with the democratic
mass meetings and to use boodle, if nec?
essary, to shape their actions."
There is evidence that copies of the
above letter were sent to other demo?
crats in Tazewell and the other counties
of the Ninth district. We are told that
Stone s<mt one to his friend and co
worker, Mont Clark, in Russell county.
We would like to know just how the
Lyaebbeng News, ihe Roanoke Times
and the other democratic newspapers
?<tte will treat this exposure.

the courage at the Norfolk convention
to give it the attention its significance

times the beauty of nature is marred by

cart ?1 for school house is a blot on the
landscape and yet the blot may be trans?
formed into a beauty spot by the ex?
penditure of a little money and time and
the exercise of good taste. A farm
house of dilapidate?! appearance and
with barns in a tumble ?iown condition
is another blot on the landscape, a re?
proach to the farmer, rnd a reflection
upon the community. No wonder that
in such homes children get dtasattafied
and want to go to the city. And yet
the remedy can easily be fotind and the
murmuring of the children stayed if
only the paint brush were wield-d and a
little carpentering done. Such work
has a twofold advantage in that it makes
the bouse and surrourding property
more valuab'e arc! attractive.

republican or democrat, who stands for

convention. If other democrats in the
Ninth who received similar letters from

Plan to Change Party Conventions.
Senator Jonathan Bourne, jr., of Or?
egon has reopened the question of the
representation of the states in republi?
can national conventions," says Mun
sey's Magazine editorially. "Each state
under the present system has two dele?
gates for each Senator or Representa?
tive in Congress; total, 1,072. Of these
delegates, 252?almost one quarter of
the total?will represent the eleven
southern states, although there is no
reasonable expectation that any of
those states will cast a single republi?
can vote in the electoral college. Tex?
as will have forty delegates, although
the Lore Star state has never cast an
electoral vote for a republican. On the
other hand, Iowa will have only twenty
six, although for more than fifty years
she has not cast an electoral vote for
any one but a republican.
"The Senator from Oregon criticizes
this plan. He would give every state
four delegates at large?total, 192?and
then would distribute the rest in pro
portion to the number of republican
votes cast in each state.
"This plan would tend to the selec?
tion of republican candidates for the
presidency by the people who must vote
for them if they are to win at the polls.
It would prevent the office-holding re?
publicans groups from southern states
being so over-potential as they now are.
It would also break the control of na?
tional conventions by political organiza?
tions based on patronage."

The Progressive Farmer.
It is because we wish to see the south
take its rightful place as an agricultur?
al section, and southern farmers receive
a just reward for the work of their
hands that we protest against this idea
that good livestock and good farming
methods are not for the average famer.
They most empnancally are, and if he
is ever to become a good farmer, to
make his land good, to have a good
home and a good bank account, be must
get rid of the foolish notion that he has
to wait until he has lots of money be?
fore he goes to farming in the right
way. To place one's dependence in
scrub farm animals, or to imagine that
any farm animal can give the most
profit when allowed to shift for itself,
is not good farming. Such theories?
for these are theories as wild and base?
less as any "scientist" ever promul?
gated?have done much to keep the
south in its present backward condition
and we cannot get rid of them one mo?
ment too soon.

tried to beat off the cat. It thereupon
sprang fiercely at her, fixing its teeth

DIET AND HEALTH
By Dl. T. J. ALLEN
LIVED SEVEN YEARS ON
British medical men have been
much Interested in the case of
Arthur Keenc of Penarth, Gla?
morgan. The boy has lived on
milk exclusively, nearly seven
years, and was a remarkabe ex?
ample of physical development
and normal health. His diet
has been a little more than two
quarts of milk daily. It is not
to be assumed that a child after
the first year would live very
much better on milk than on
any other food, but remarkable
results would probably follow in
every case the substitution oT a
simple diet for the ordinary mix?
ture of fresh bread, mushes,
flesh meat, tea and coffee and
fruit Indiscriminately mixed. It
Is Important that experiments In
feeding be Instituted that would
demonstrate systematically the
benefits from scientific feeding.
