Entered at the Postollice at Rtannton, Va , as second class mall matter. Friday, September 21,1906. A HEART TO HEART TALK. Recently some of our private citizens have, most distastefully to themselves, been compelled to go into the police court to complain of a nuisance and a violation of one of our city ordinances which has been openly violated for 15 years to our certain knowledge, and which anybody could detect who tried to. This occurred when complaint was made against tbe B. & O. Ry. last week for violations of tbe ordinance relative to blowing whistles within tbe corporate limits. The matter was easily adjusted, tbe road itself abated tbe nuisance, and the difficulty ended iv a most satisfactory manner. Such re sults might have as easily been accom plished by our police force as to have inflicted on citizens the annoyance of this unpleasant duty. We have sup posed that these were their duties as much as chasing picauiny crap shoot ers in alleys, or attending tbe opera. For several years the Spectator has called attention to this occurrence, good huuioredly and seriously. But our police could never be aroused to a sense of duty. We learned on enquiry that some members of the force had actually been sent ou the yards of that road to detect those responsible, but they could find no offenders. They need not have gone on the yards, all they need have done was to have plant ed themselves anywhere within two miles of the yards and unless they be deaf they could have gathered all the evidence needed. Yet whilst whistles were blown which, not speaking jocu larly, could be heard most any after noon to Buffalo Gap, still tbey could not be heard, we are told, a few hun dred yards away on tbe street corners where our city guardians and sleuths are accustomed to pose. Is it any wonder that the slayer of Garber, or the man who shot the cir cus woman, is at large with none to molest or make him afraid. Gentle men entrusted with guarding tbe pub lic and sent to seek offenders, who could not have discovered the viola tions of the ordinauce against railroad whistling, would scarcely find a two bushel bag of asafoetida if hidden tinder their beds and given six . months in which to hunt for it. DISGUSTING BLUSTER. Those who are blustering and yawp ing about Mr. Bryan's breaks are usually the gang that gave us Alton B. Parker. They are usually of the Cleveland contingent. Tbey are those who went to St. Louis to nominate a candidate who could win. In Virginia they are those who were going to do vast things at St. Louis, and took Tom Ryan of New York, along as a Virgin ia Democrat to help do it. They are those who have been in tbe party for what there was in it, and when they pretended to see or were such dupes of Wall Street as to believe their poor little dollars were going to be made 50 cent dollars if Wm. J. Bryan was elect ed, went tumbling into the Republican party, or worse yet, went to the stool pigeon party. Could Mr. Bryan make any worse breaks than tbey V Could he make any worse breaks than their candidates Cleveland and Parker V Cleveland had a party when he went iuto office, aud he destroyed it in four years. Parker never bad anything that even resembled a party at any time, and yet the followers of these gentle men who undertook again to say what Democrats should do, are talking about Mr. Bryan's breaks. If they don't want to vote for Mr. Bryan they need not do so, they never have, so why this noise t SPARE THIS TREE. The Standard Oil monopoly is not a cutse, say its advocates, it is a bless ing. It has made oil cheaper than ever before, and has developed the country as individuals could not have developed it. How do they know I When they make that assertion they reason with out a premises, We have never tried individual effort because the monopoly crushed out the individual. Between Parkersburg. W. Va., and Portsmouth, Ohio, 150 independent oil operators were bankrupted by tbe Standard, assisted by railroad rebates. These men who struggled for an existence were ruined in their business, sent possibly to the alms bouse, that a mo nopoly might flourish. If this is right we should not think. A monop oly for thinking should be established, aud our thinking should be done for us. Everything indeed should be done by organization. If good in one case it must be good in another. Let every body become slaves save a few who manage the affair and turn all busi ness over to oue great bead. Mr. Roosevelt when bis election was made known to him the last time said: On March 4 next 1 shaW have served three and a half years, and this three aud a half years constitutes my first term. The wise custom which limits the President to two terms regards tbe substance and not tbe form. Under no circumstance will 1 be a candidate for or accept another nomination. That is very plain language, and he meant it when he said it, but he can change. He has quit on the tariff, he will soon quit on the trusts, be b»B as good as quit on tbe railroads, and he can go back on the above utterance. Where there's a will there's a way. «—ii m — Eggs are selling for 20 cents a dozen. This is entirely attributable to : Repu blican rule and Mr, Bryan's views on the railway question. But cattle are' dull at Sj cents a pound. THE VA. DEBT QUESTION. ! It was stated that James M. M >ignn of Jefferson counts. W. Va., would offer resolutions iitTeeting the Virginia, debt question to the Second District Democratic Congressional convention which was held at X yser. The reso lutions us prepared reed as follows: Whereas, in lSill the Virginia legis lature appointed certain oi its inem bors a commission, with authority to bring suit in '.he name of the State for the benefit of the holders of certificates purport in); to represent a debt due by West Virginia, and which certificates have been selling on Wall street for two cents on the dollar, and whereas said commission has recently hiongbt suit; Resolved, First—That effort should be exhausted to continue said suit without action till after the next Vir ginia legislature. Second—That the legislature of this State should appoint a committee to as certain and make report*: (1) Whether certain members of the commission, who were members of tbe Virginia legislature in 1894, were paid large lees by a Wall street syndicate, controlling thecertificates, for procur ing the appointment of said commis sion. (2) Whether a Wall street syndicate, controlling the certificates, is now fur nishing the money to carry on said suit; and (3) Whether said Wall stieet syndi cate has agreed lo pay the members of said commission large fees for their services in this matter. Third—That the report ot said com mittee should be published iv Virginia papers to the cud that the Helf respect ing people of that state lie infoimed of the truth about this matter. It is the opinion of this convention that when the people of Virginia aie informed of tbe lads, her legislature will repeal tbe law appointing such a commission and will order said suit dismissed. This convention is unwilling to believe that Virginia has so fallen from her high estate, as to knowingly permit mem bers of her legislature to make money by biriug out to a Wall street syndi cate tbe use of the name of the state. Mr. Mason may have offered the resolution, but we saw no mention of it in any report of that convention. He may have reconsidered his intention, inasmuch as Mr. Mason does not al ways carry every tnreat with reference to tbe State debt question into execu tion. His enquiry relates almost solely to the character of the debt com in is sion, whether tbey have accepted large fees from some Wall street syndicate, etc. What effect this enquiry would have on the U. 8. Supreme Court we are not able to determine, how it could be gotten into the record we also fail to see. though we admit that it is a most interesting and pertinent en quiry from a moral stand point. We apprehend, however, that Mr. Mason is on a cold trail, and his resolution if ever offered was seen to be so remote from the duties for which the Demo crats of tbe 2nd W. Va. district had assembled, that they were forced to lay it on, or under the table. BRYAN AMONG THE POP GUNS. It is quite amusing to bear the pop gun press talking about Mr. Bryan's views on the railroad question. We will wager that not a single newspaper which now finds fault with Mr. Bryan on this subject but would have found fault with him on some other subject had he not talked of government own ership at all. And we will further wager that not one single one of these papers has ever loyally supported blm at all. This same lot of Cheap John newspapers which are anywhere and everywhere if a dollar is in sight, have no views except as corporate iulluences dictate. Why don't these barnacles on tbe Democratic ship leaye it and go where they belong. Go to the Repub lican part; at once, they lit there and nowhere else. Bryan bas carried Vir ginia in apite of tbem. He will carry it again in 1908. Yet we sincerely hope in doing so he will not be loaded down by a lot of such luggage as was his misfortune in his pr vious campaigns. The railways iv some parts of the country, notably tbe N. Y. Central, the Pennsylvania, and the B. & 0., have issued a two cent mileage book good for anybody using it, aud in the case of the N. Y. Central redeemable at will; in case of the other roads redeem able in one year. This begins to indi cate business sense. This is tbe first step toward good passenger railroad ing we have sten. These roads will not only increase travel by making it easy, but they will increase their rev enues and remove a legislative act in the states where they are for a Hat two cent rate. If the railroads should be taught that decent treatment be gets decent treatment, tbey would have learned a great lesson. Now let the roads be decent in freight rates. . ■ ■ Mr. Cannon is going to tour tbe coun try speech making. Here is a line op portunity to seek, not the bauble rep utation at tbe cannon's mouth, but possibly one may seek and find why this Cannon's mouth is opened so wide just now. It looks as if the Republi can party is trembling in its boots. The I'rcsident sent troops into Ha vana last week under the pretense of protecting American citizens. They had hardly landed before they were withdrawn. Somebody made a most egregious blunder, but that is nothing new. — m m The worst element in New York will not ail support Mr. Hearst. There is Paul Morton, Tom Ryan, Hazen Hyde, Tom Piatt and Cbauneey Depew, who would not touch lim with a ten foot pole, to say nothing of \n. Parkhurst, Anthony Comstock anil Mr. Jerome. S Senator Henry Cabot Lodge and Lucius Tuttle, president of the ISoston & Maine Railroad, are said to have riddled Mr. Bryan > views on gov erument ownership of railroads. It is easy to solve that riddle. Mr. Tom Martin, we are told, tum bled out of tbe Bryan baud wagon on hearing Mr. Bryan's New York speech. He tumbled in—why can he not turn ble outy It is hard to make any polit ical move that he does not tumble ft it San Francisco bas had her shaking up, Valparasohas had hers, but it was left to the railways to get theirs when Mr. Bryan in an off hand way told them of their dirty work in 189f> and 1000, and suggested a remedy. How lonely it would have been about the McKinley monument had not Mrs. Alice Roosevelt Longworth been there to unveil it. I A head line In a Virginia daily rt-ads as follows : "Wt at is Thomas F. Ryan after in Virgin!*?" lUmwih that he , contributed a trip to Europe to mr Insurance Commissioner receutly, it is pussilile he is after him. Mr. liaeon. Assistant. Secretary of State, baa gone to Calm to help settle the troubles down ther«. We hope tile Cubans maj he xhlo to di"'it>f?ui-h he tweet) this prod net and that ot the Chicago packers. The Richmond Tiiiies Dispatch which has always so loyally supported Win. .1 Rrvati iv the past finds fault with his ideas on enveriiiiient ownership of railways 'I'ln's is unfortunate. Two such good friends should never part. Ulnej'ip.kets were kicked and cuffed out of Portland. Maine, a few dats ago Tltev were white bluejackets. If the government wants to see its blue jackets well treated up there, send somecoloied ones. Secretary Shaw is doing good work in the. South where is making 1 speeches. Any Democrat, who hears Mr. Shaw is a better Democrat ever afterwards Mr. W N. Reed of Long Glade calls attention to the condition of our pult lic school houses. There must be much truth in what he says. One never can jndee of the number of blatherskites in the land until Wm. J. Kryan says something they don't like It is explained that Mr. Roosevelt will not run for tbe presidency next time. He will simply walk. There is a Littlefield up in Maine which, if possible, seems to be growing smaller all tbe time. A Roosevelt kid gets hurt almost every day, and it is a new one every time. Maine has gone Republican, and tbe Dutch have captured Holland. Big Gravel Bed. Waynesboro, Va , September 17. —It is reported that immense lied of gravel, suitable for surfacing up railroad bed, has been discovered on the farm of Mr. Richard Maupin, one mile south of here, on tbe Norfolk and Western Railway. This gravel is similar to the product of the famous Chesapeake and Ohio gravel bed, just east of Basic City, which is considered by people who know to be superior to any other rock or gravel for a road bed, and the finding of the material almost on tbe Norfolk aud Western tracks will mean much to that read. Mr. Maupin bas sold one half interest to Mr. Russell, of this place. We understand that a partial contract has beeu made with the railroad to furnish them tbe gravel at a stated sum per car load. _ .

VA. JOHN O. WALKER, Secretary Our Public School Houses Sdi'.or Spectator.: There are iv the enut.H possibly 280 shacks designated as school bouses Tbe geueral condition of these build ings is a reflection upon the d cenc\ of every patron, a reflection utioii Ihe honor and good taste of those responsi ble, and a vile imposition upon the childien who are heided and boused in them under conditions that would do violence to the sensibilities of a second rate swine h-rd. These houses as a rule have not h id a coat of paint since they were finish ed T> c grounds during vhc ition are generally a uaw of weeds and nfiit-e and iluiiiig scuool tei in in wet weather present tbe appearance of a hog lot. 1 have seen fences down that have lain there for twelve months. Tbe ap proaches both inside and out of the enclosure are generally when raining de. p with mud; and such a thing as a pavement or shade tree has nevei been thought of These are the places to which our children go for mental and toral training, and improvement. But it is to other conditions about lese buildings to which 1 wish to call iore especial attentiuu. Tbe play ground ai d closet grounds are all in me euelosnre. There is here almost au indisci iuiiiiiile Cuiuiuliigliiig of tbe sexes. These .in bui ding- are glarn gi> Iv tins opou with no eh se fences to divde them and iusuie pri vacv or conti unite to modesty. Often the planks aie t.o.n oil, aud the insult; walls decorated WitU indecent language. Judging from surroundings there seems to be a general determination upon the part of oureducatois to eradi cate the distinction of sex, aud throw duwu the barriers that should exist be tween tbcu , and to adopt|Mie yaukee single standard of morals, along with other fads and fooleries. I wish to say to those who have daughters to educate that if you wish to- keep tbeir minds puie and their mouths clean you cannot afford to send them to many of these scnools unless conditions change. This indiscrimi nate mixing, wuli tbia most blatant vulgarity and coarseness,will do more to lower their standard of modesty aud decency than anything else. 1 have said before and 1 reittrate it here, that tht se schools as a prolific purveyor of vice ate in a class by them selves 1 defy any intelligent man to examine conditions and decide other wise, yet in our tcbools are taught art, hygiene and other variegated and beau tiful things. Now we ask who is responsible for these things. We have a Board of Su pervtsors who I'm sure can testify that my statement here is not overdrawn. Tbey could also tell us bow much money we have. We built a bouse some time ago because we bad $20 000 that we didn't know how to use, we have also lowered tbe levy $7,000, ac cording to tbe public press. The $20, - Ot 'i bouse was built as far as we can guess to inscribe their namtson a brass plate for the benefit of posterity, the other most likely for public applause. Oue hundred dollars each would put these school buildings iv decent condi tion. In tbe interest of common iiec> ncy it Should be done, otbel wise the pel pie should establish private reboots. Tne few dollars saved by patronizing the public scnools will iv nowise pay for the moral wreckage that will follow tbe wake of present conditions. I submit are conditions decent I Have we a lig'jt to decent surround ings !
