Friday, September 14,1906.
The Republican Congressional Con
vention of tbe 10 h district, according
to Col. James A. Frazier, "the con
vention of office holders of tne 10th
district," met in Staunton on Satur
day last, and nomiuated Mr. Eminett
D. Gregory for Congress. Of course
the holding of the convention was
limply an empty form. The candidate
has no more show for electton than a
native of tbe Fegee Islands, but there
are certain things that must be done
in order that all of these officeholders
may retain their jobs. They must
display zeal, exert energy, make a
showing, and then boast and brag to
beat thunder. All tbis tbey are doing
and will do. A salary, some soup, or
some pie, or whatever name may be
given It, is a great lung expander. It
takes soreness out of throats harsh
and dry, It puts euergy and life into
dry boneß and enfeebled forms. One
drawing his regular pay can jump aud
cavort and yell at less, than any other
known individal. A dry joke, a chest
nut, old, wormy and decayed, when
handed out to a crowd of office holders
by a party boss, is snapped up chewed
and enjoyed, according to outward
and visible Bigus, as a sweet morsel.
The most conumou place harangue by
those who band out pie, is maguiiied by
persons of tbe salaried class into an
oration worthy of Demosthenes or
Cicero. Thus it was last Saturday
save and except when Col. James A.
Frazier raised his tuneful voice and
sought to get tbe ear of tbe chairman
aud tbe sympathy of the audience.
Then instead of shouting there was
hissing, and a howling down of this
ardent Republican and vehement
speaker. His cousin, Col. S. B. Allen,
once so near aud dear, once so like
Damon was toward Pythias, was cold
aud deaf; they have parted company,
and Col. Allen being in, and Col. Fra
zier out, there was none of that sweet
concourse between tnemas of old, and
the Republicau party in the 10th dis
trict is split. Tis a pity that iv so
small a body there should be discord.
Were tbey united tbey would still be
powerless, but enthusiasm is not dom
iuant where leaders like Hon. Jacob
Yost, and staunch supporters aa many
we know in Augusta, did not so mucb
as grace the convention with their
presence, and where tbe colored con
tingent was as tcarce as huckelberries
at Christmas. Oue would hardly have
believed tbe body was Republican.
Tne colored minister was not there,
the outside fringe of the body was not
dark, and noisy, and odoriferous as in
days when Gen. Wm. Mabone, and
Col, Frazier, and Col. Allen used to be
gin their orations with "My fellow cit
izens, " with the accent heavy on tbe
syllable low.
But, Col. Frazier whilst down is not
out, be says, and iv due time will make
himself seen, felt and heard, a feat he
signally failed to perform to his satis
faction on last Saturday.
AN ECHO OF 1896 AND 1900
Standing at a station on the C & O.
railway one night when the train No.
1 would be due at about 10:20, we were
informed that the regular train was 20
minutes late. Mr. Roosevelt bad spoken
at Hinton, W. Va., that day. When
ten o'clock and twenty minutes arrived
tbe soft mellow whistle of a passenger
engine was beard. Arouut the curve
a mile away shone an electric bead
light, and in a moment more a train
dashed up and halted for water. It was
a dark train, two Pullmans and a bag
gage ear, not tbe regular cars of tbe
C. &O. It was a touring train. The
engine was one of the finest owned by
the C. & 0., the cars were fresh from
the Pullman shops and were luxurious
to the fullest degree. Here was the
Imperial Irain carrying Mr. Roosevelt.
He must speak in Maryland the next
day and everything had been shoved
aside to let him pass. No. 1 was held
out of its time twenty minutes, all tbe
common herd were kept waiting 20
minutes that his imperial majesty,
Theodore Roosevelt, might sweep by
to his destination. At tbe same time
over in W. Va , Wm. J. Bryan was
speaking, and had to rely on the regu
lar trains to meet his engagements,
not being able to get the extra service
of even so much as a cattle car. This
is political railroading. We have
doubted whether Roosevelt's party
ever paid a cent for that train.
In those campaigns Mr. Bryan saw
that the railroads owned tbe country
and he has now simply asked the peo
pie whether they like it. He has sim
ply said when it comes to the question
of whether the railroads shall own the
country, or the country own the rail
roads, he prefers the latter.
No man was ever treated by the rail
roads as was Mr. Bryan. No man bas
ever had so much reason to speak thus
as Mr. Bryan. No man could so un
murmuringly have submitted to such
treatment by them as he, and it does
look as if in the face of what they did
i j 189(1 and 1900 that he, as well as
others, can easily see that they can be
made a menace to good government,
and have already been made so, for no
crime can be greater than for the peo
ple to be robbed of their duly elected
president. It is little less than assas
sination, and we have wondered that
fair minded people on the other side
did not show more horror at its ac
complishnient, for which the railroads
were greatly to blame.
Those who seem afraid Hon. Joseph
W. Bailey will burst,are not afraid of
it. They want him to burst.
The narrowest escape from total los
of power tbe Republican party ever
had was in lS'Jti. Cleveland's adminis
trations were as Republican as the
most Republican, so we will not count
their. Bat the Republican party had
a uairow escape in 189<i Hid it fallen
ben it might have tullen like Lucifer
never to rise again. It really lust, but
recovered the fort by a most daring
and*Jastaidly crime, it look away from
Mr. Bryan his clearly earned victory.
In accomplishing that end nothing
was more potential than tbe railways
Every oue in tbe United States with
out a single exception, arrayed every
power it possessed against him. From
Virginia, West Virginia and Maryland
men were carried to Canton, Ohio, for
absolutely nothing, or so small a con
sideration as amounted to nothing,
and so we believe they were from many
other States. They were poured into
that town, at railroad expense, that
they might bear Mr. McKinley speak,
that they might see him on bis front
porch, that they might touch the hem
of bis garment. Mr. McKinley aud
those who went about over the coun
try talking, howling or whispering
for him, were carried here, there and
everywhere on free passes. Uorne to
our own community. Here tbe rail
ways were practically his. Mr. J ngulls
the presideut then of the C. &0 ,went
up and down bis live urgiug, in fact
threatening the men under him witli
loss of position should they refuse to
vote as he voted. Free trains were
provided to hear Mr. Ingalls and other
orators for tbe Republican ticket. It
was openly cbaiged, aud never yet has
been denied, that Mr. Ingalls of the
funds of tbe C. & O. Ry. caused over
$3,000 to be put into a newspaper office
in this town, professedly Democratic,
to influence sentiment in favor ot Mr.
McKinley. in other words the Repub
Mean party bad every railway in the
United States at its back workiug day,
night, Sunday and every other day,
for the perpetuation of that parly.
if Mr. McKinley bad them all, of
course it goes without saying that Mr.
Bryan had none. But worse than this.
When Mr. Bryan wanted a ipecial
train his money was not good. He
could not hire a hand car. Trains to
carry people to bear him were deliber
ately side tracked or blocked, bis meet
ings were lessensd or broken up. When
Mr. Bryan spoke near a great college
town in the north on one occasion,
free trains were run to carry students
to tbe meeting who should break it up
with cat calls and indecent behavior,
in a western town where be was to
speak special free trains were run to
carry opponents so that they could
break up bis meeting, and on that oc
casion a bowling mob got about him
aud one fellow spat in his face. But
he simply wiped it off, smiling as he
did se. In tbe second McKinley cam
paign tbe same conditious prevailed,
but not in so pronounced a manner.
Vet well do we remember when Mr.
Bryan could get no special trams, free
specials were accorded McKinley aud
Roosevelt wherever and whenever
they wanted them.
« ■ .
Of course all the Republican press,
and much of the so called Democratic
press, has attacked Wm J. Bryan for
his entertaining, as they call it, soci
alistic views as to tbe ownership by
tbe government of the railways. In
the first place the idea is not novel.nor
is it wild, nor is it particularly undem
ocratic. Some times even democratic
countries are driven to ends not agree
able, nor altogether desirable, by a ■
force of circumstances. It Is only a
broadening of municipal ownership
which has many advocates. The build
ing of the Union Pacific road was one
instance, the Panama canal project is
another, because tbey both tend to
centralization. But the tendency of
our government has been that way
since one portion of the union made
war on another portion to compel the
abolition of slavery, and so centraliz
ed has the government become by that
act and since that effort, the force
and power of the dominant party in
that affair has practically been unbrok"
en ever since, and that party may pos
sibly never be dislodged, it has been
held in power since the war by its pen
sion acts, its tariff policy, its favorit
ism to National Banks, its harboring
of trusts, and its protection of every
sort of scheme devised to gather great
wealth, as against the individual citi
zen. Ibis same party will take over
the railways if its salvation ever de
pends on it. But it does not need to
own them outright so long as they are
its servile tools, and keep it in power.
That party wants a thing not because
it deems it a good thing for the people,
but simply to make of it a weapon for
self perpetuation. The railroads have
persistently and uniformallv aided tbe
Republican party in its bold on the
government, ho much so that to own
them would be as foolish as to commit
liarl kiin.
It is stated by some that Mr. Bryan
has apain put the Democratic party in
a false position He never put them in
a false position. He put some members
out of the party. His position so far
has been the exact position of tbe par
ty. The rank and hie are as mucb
with him today as ever. It is only the
old offenders who sue not.
Secretary Win 11. Taft has a broth
er who says that although a life Jong
Democrat,he must now go to tbe Repub
lican party, because of Mr. Bryan's
attitude on the control of railways It
leaked out that be was a Cleveland
Democrat, which put him In the Re
publican party in 1896, where he has
been ever Bir:ce. and ought to be.
A great State like New York should
not kick on Hearst for Governor, when
she has Piatt and Oepew as her sena
tors No parly can furnish less for the
money than tbe Republicans of that
State, no matter when they try.

1 The above item wbic.ii tbe Pennsyl
r vania Railroad has caused to be issued
- is one of tbe most remarkable utteran
, ces found m the literature of the day.
f Mark well the following (Cutanea :
) 'These stocks were purchased some
t six years ago, for the purpose ofes
tahlishing such relations with tbe
1 managements of those properties as
' would incline them to j-iin the Perm

What, a masterly t ff irt for good. Six
years ago Mr. Cassatt tells us he pur
chased these stocks —not for gain, not
for greed, not for investment, not to
coutrol other properties, but simply to
•'incline" other railways to join in an
effort to abolish rebates and preferen
ces. Glorious thought, masterly con
ception. Now after this noble woik
' began, this iuialive for high morality
on tbe part of the Pennsylvania, let
us see how the purifying persuasion
worked, how much of the seed fell in
' good ground.
1 Within the period staled tbe 11 &C
tore up tbe tracks of the branch road
which permitted tbe Fulmers to mine
and ship coal, and drove them out < f
* busiuess It was ibis act which foiced
the Tillman Gillespie resolution This
was only one of a hundred, possibly a
thousand, lawless acts committed by
the B. &O. soon after the purifying
purchase of tbe aforesaid stock,
i r
Tbe influence of tbe Pennsylvania
railway upon the Norfolk & Western
' tendiug to "iucliue" it to noble deeds,
higher purposes and siucerer regard
for tbe law, can be traced to the battles
which Col. Bi owning, an independent
coal dealer, has waged against thorn
' in an effort to get decent treatment,
which he never succeeded in getting,
but which he has fought for in season
and out of season. Tbe 'inclining'"
iniluenc of the Pennsylvania was also
such as to cause Mr. L. E. Johnson,
president of that road, to incline to
' drive out and keep out any indepen
dent operation of coal on that line, and
adopted a policy of preference for the
[ Norfolk & Western's own Coal Co. 8o
far did Mr. Johnson go under this in
clining influence that be boldly and
defiantly announced that it was the
: announcement was made so well with
in the time since which the Peunsy I vn
■ nut purchased Norfolk & Western
1 stock that tbe "inclining" influence of
i that corporation must have been ever
' present.
With these notable inspirations for
' good, so broad and philanthropic that
tbe Pennsylvania, like Dowie, w.m nut
i; content to do good wuhiu us own
. Z on, but must go forth and Christ util
ize tbe railroad world, behold the "in
clining" influences of tbe Pennsylva
nia, at borne upon its own system and
I its own officers. The Interstate Com
> inerce Comiuission,with the assistance
f of Mr. Wm. A. Glasgow, has been ex
f auiiuing into its deeds, and the sweet
i purity of its conversion. In tbe face
3 of the protestations of tbe sanctifying
influences which caused the Pennsyl
t vania to purchase the stocks which it
c now agrees to sell, it is impossible to
t liit'l fitting expressions, especially
" when almost every high official of that
road was proven -a grafter, and the
t road honeycombed with rebates and
. preferences.
"The desired result having been ac
j complisbed," we are told,they entertain
,- no fears of the railroads falling back
t on their old practices. ''Desired re
- suits" is peculiarly good, peculiarly
i expressive, and possibly, in fact true,
. if the results desired were really known.
) Was ever stock purchased for so bigb
c and noble a purpose? Will there
, ever be such a purchase again F Did
b ever a railway go on such a crusade of
, evangelizing, or on such a noble mis
r sion ! Long before the investigation
j now going on was undertaken, or in
s deed thought of, six years ago, we are
b told, the good work started and un
i abated, bas been going on, until now
t the full fuitiou is at hand. Tbe stock
can be sold, because the glorious end
is accomplished, and no more will
i tbe railroads fall back upon their old
i practices, hike Saul of Tarsus, the
i Pennsylvania has fought a good fight
s and there is now laid up for it a crown
r of glory; like Paul when he spoke to
- tbe Corinthians, this great reformer
> can now exclaim: "Moreover brelb
5 ren, I declare unto you the gospel
which I preached unto you, which also
ye lave received, and wherein ye
" stand; by which also ye are saved, if
5 ye keep in memory what I preached
* unto you, and backslide not."
9 The C. &O. stock, not having been
' purchased for religious purposes, was
1 not sold then, it went a little later.
