As is, or should be known, the Fair

to improve and uplift the agricultural

There was, as in the past, some j

WALTER GRAHAM, CANDIOATE.
Announcement was made from Rad?
ford last week that Mr. Walter Gra?
ham, of Graham, would be a progres?
sive candidate for Congress from the
Ninth district this fall. It is fitting
that Mr. Graham's candidacy was an?
nounced from a town outside the dis?
trict which he aspires to represent, for
it is evident that his backing and sup?
port for the race must come from other
sections than the Ninth, as it certainly
will not come frcm within. -He took
this sten after making a trip to Koan
oke and New York, with a slop at Rad
ford, (for what purpose may be guess?
ed), and without even consulting with
or securing the backing of fr.ends in his
own town -and county.
Mr. Graham in a card on the 16th
instant eaid: "Of course I accept the
high honor conferred upon me by the
progressives cf the Ninth Virginia dis?
trict, and thank them." By what pro?
gressives was the honor conferred and
m whjen? Certainly not those in his home
town, for the Roosevelt club at Graham
refused to endorse him; not by Hon. .1.
N. Harman, elector of the progressive
ticket in the Ninth, who, in a speech de?
livered at Gate City en Tuesday (and
quoted elsewhere) declared himself em^
phalicf lly for Hon. C. B. Slemp, and
certainly not by the great rank and
file of progressives in the district, scores
of whom in the Bristol convention voted
for Slemp as the man to lead them to
victory this fall.
Mr. 'ru!.am in his card further said:
"I had DO part in the Bristol tnnv? ntion,
nor wii. I . ver lend my sanction in any
?ray to I >. perfidy and trickery of the
bosses \n i.o are the servants of special
inter?",. ? anal not workers in the welfare
of the i ",>!e. " Those who attended
the ma- ; .eeting at Te ze we 11 that se- ]
lected c ?i trates to the Bristol conven
tion wilf ' member that Mr. Graham !
was am ? ive participant, and bada!

_H.
er, that he was the floor manager for
Clear Fork district and announce.! the
delegates sent bv that district to the
Bristol convention upon the llocr of the
I mass meeting. In whose interest wee
he w??rking then." For th.
the people? Does he mean to say that
the delegates sent trom this countv.
| with his active assistance, were 'ser
j vants of special interests," and, if t?o,
why did he by vote and action sanctior
) their appointment? In this conm cti?>r
. we respectfully call Mr. Graham s at?
tention to an editorial taken from aast
? week's Sandy Valley News, and which
we reproduce in this issue.
We are frankly sorry for Mr. Grav
' ham. He has been over-persuade?! bj
parties outside the district and whe
have no interest in nor understanding ol
the needs of our own people. He him
self being practically an ??utsider ant
a man whose aristocratic tcndenriei
has prevented him from knowing th?
mountaineer a. wh<> are the brain an?
brawn of this grmt district, and thui
n Ot untlerstanding the waj a ai ?1 meed
of the masses of our people has. n?
doubt, caused him to be misled int
mistaking the voice of a few politics
soreheads who 'nav, to grind'
for that of the people, an i can onlv re
suit in his overwhelming humiliation a
the polls in November.
No, fellow citizens, Walter Grahat
does not represent the progressives i
the Ninth district. They m conventi?
at Bristol on the 2-?th day of August la
selected as their choice for represent
tive in the halls of Congress, Hon. t
B. Slemp, and mean to s^-e to it that 1
is re-elected by a decisive majority ?
the 5th day of next November.

1912 are duplicates. The results will be

American Road Congress.
i Giving her complete approval to lbs
i purpose of the American Road Congress
which is to be held in Atlantic City
? September 30th, to October 5th, and
making a plea for the restoration of the
Old Trails' Road, Mrs. Donald If? Lean,
Honorary President-General of the
Daughters of the American Revolution,
in an interview declares that more real
-:ty v.ili he brought to :h<- l ited
St-ites by development of public high
ways than by many new-fad move:- fits
that are engaging the attention of the
countrv at nresent time.
Speaking specifically of the especial
interest taken by the D. A. R., in the
Old Trails' Road, Mrs. McLean says:
"Such Old Trail is nature's highway,
followed first by the bufFalo, then by
the heroic settlers, who carried civiliza?
tion acroes the continent N?.tanle
among suca pioneers are Daniel Boon?-,
James I'.ridles and Kit Carson, The
natural Old Trails Highways is the onlv
01 SUCH character conceived of fcnl en?
dorsed by women. And to a woman
most bo ?credited the suggestion that
telegraph and telephone poles along this
national highway should ^ear markings
of red, white and blue bands, so that
transcontinental travelers and tourists
by 'following the flag' need neither
guide nor road map, and yet cannot be
lo?t. "
In her letter to President Page, of the
Road Consrress, Mrs. McLean says tha?
she believes the work of the Congress
will have a remarkable influence on the
happiness ar,d prosperity of the country,
and adds:
"It woul.l seem eminently suitable
and creditable that the Congress should
endorse this D A R., preij.ct, miking
the transcontinental hiirhwav th.f nt
the Oid Trails, thus insuring a pntrkM?C
as well as practical interest in such
touring, and ulso inculcating ?ritbout
?effort a knowledge <?t Aanmlcaii history
j in its earliest development."
Mrs. McLean has accepted the invita?
tion of the directors of the Congress to
make an address at one of the s?s
in Atlantic City.

make his escape. Before he could do
so, however, two of the outlaws seized
and bound him securely. He was a
prisoner.
In pleading tones did he implore his
captors to release him, but in vain. He
turned his eyes to those of his sister-in

Old Copperhead glided from behind s

The two men came together fiercely
and fell to the ground struggling des?
