The charges by Congressman
Jones that Senator Martin was dis?
burser of the "yellow doa" fund of
tbe railroads to bribe members of
the Virginia Legislature twenty
years ago, have been promptly met
and emphatically denied by Senator
Martin and this position is sustain?
ed by Hen. J. Taylor Ellyson.chair?
man of the State Democratic Com?
mittee. Senator Martin was a mem?
ber of the State Committee, and the
contributions received by him and
other members were for the pur?
pose of redeeming the State to white
Following are the charges made
by Mr. Jones?t his speech in Lynch?
burg and repeated al Woodstock
*'I here and now reiterate what
I said in Halifax county, tbat Sena?
tor Martin was a comparatively un?
known man when he was first elect?
ed to the Vnited States Senate, and
that he was only known as a
railroad agent and lobbyist. 1
further charge, and 1 am prepared
to prove, not only that he represent?
ed railroad interests before the
Legislature of Virginia, but that he
was actually one of the disbursing
agents of the 'yellow dog' fund of
the railroads. * *
"When the Lorimer case was
brought before the Senate in March
last it is true that Senator Martin
Toted against him. * *
"Senator I_e Follette of Wiscon?
sin, * * forced the Senate to reopen
the case. * * For the La Follette
resolution Senator Martin ofTered
a substitute, which provided that
the Committee on Privileges and
Elections should conduct tbe inves
tigation. Senator Lorimer's Re
publican colleagues promptly ac
ceptetd and voted for Senator Mar
tin's resolution, thus defeating Sen
ator Lt Follette's obviously fair am
proper resolution. * *
"Was it surprising that Senato
Martin, whose vote decided tha
white pine lumber, which is use
in the doors, blinds and windo
aashes of every poor man's house
should be taxed f2 per thousanc
should have offered a resolution r
ferring the I/mmer investigate
to a committee the past perlormai
ces of a majority of whose membei
had been so gratifying tothelumbc
Senator Martin's reply to tk
charges made by Mr. Jones are:
"Newspapers report Mr. Jones s
saying in his Lynchburg speec
not only 'that Martin represent*
the railroad interests before tl
Legislature of Virginia, but that \
was actually one of the disbursic
agents of the 'yellow dog' fund
"Mr. Jones made these same stat
ments twelve years ago, and th(
were then denounced by meas fals
I desire to say that said state-net*
and everr word of it, is absolute
false. The reiteration of these vic
ous and slanderous falsehood
which have been denounced by |
time and again, simply show t
extremities to which Mr. Jones
driven in this campaign.
"Referring to what Mr. Jones h
stated about the Lorimer investig
tion, I simply desire to say I vot
against the right of Mr. Lorimer
hold a seat in thu- Senate when tl
question was before the Senate, _
that tbe resolution which was off
ed in order to procure a further a
exhaustive investigation, in view
newly disc >ved evidence, and
was offered by me under the
-tructions of the caucus of the Di
oe rata of the Senate.
"I repel as false and Blandon
any statement or insinuation t
the resolution offered by me. um
the instructions of the Senate Di
ocratic caucus, was intended
screen, or could by any possibi
screen Mr. Ixtrimer, or that it
any relation whatever to the lum
interests in the United States.
"Any statement or insinual
that I have at any time had any r
tion or connection with any lum
trust or lumber association, or t
I have been in any way infiuen
by them, is also false and slanc
Letter of Interest from Collierstown
July IO.?We have been distress?
ingly dry in this section of the
county. Local showers have passed
around us. but not until today has
there been any rain fall that was
any benefit to growing crops. So
we were blessed this afternoon with
fine rain. All kinds of vegetation,
except corn, is burnt out. Corn
has held its own to a remarkable
degree, battling between the
scorching rays and parched earth.
As yet the crop bas not tired and
the prospect at this writing is good
for a fine crop.
The 8th of June, 1909, we lost our
all by hail. In May, 1910. we lost
out by the freeze, and this year by
the drouth. So, Mr. Editor, you
see we have i.**en baying hard luck,
but we are not at all discouraged?
we have been bountifully fed; and
more than that, the great Creator
has said in His Word that He chas
teneth those who trust in Him.
