News of a shooting of n man and woman, fatally, on Whitakers Ridge, reached town on Wednesday morn? ing, by a young man named Whit? aker. Details are meager. Common? wealth's Attorney Harman was no? tified of the killing, and that Whit? aker was under arrest and would have a hearing at Cedar Bluff on Thurs? day, yesterday. Commonwealth's At? torney conducted the trial before the Magistrate. The particulars und the result ol the trial have not reached us at time of going to press. It appears that Whitaker shot and killed a woman named Nelson and, Bill Whitt, a man. What the trouble was about was not stated in th^l phone message. Whitaker Ridge is ori the north side of the county,, near j the West Va. line, and is known as the seat of a number of moonshine' still houses, which have given the of? ficers much trouble, and been the scene of a number of tragedies. The supposition seems reasonable that moonshine liquor was at the bottom of the trouble. POUNDING MILL NEWS.

RIDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 1919 -I. ? ?Li. !'?. -..UUJ_1-1.11.1! WORLD LOOKS TO UNITED STATES Any Reservation to Article Ten, President Declares, Would Be A Rejection of Entire Peace Treaty. - Reading again the proposed sen? ate reservation to articlo 10 of tliu league covenant. President Wilson de? clared in an address at Cheyenne, Wyo., Wednesday that should any reservation be ndopted ho would be obliged as chief executive to regard it as a rejection of the treaty. The president ndded that rejection of the treaty would mean negotiation of a separate peace treaty with Ger? many and asserted that such a nego? tiation could not change a siuglu item of the peace settlement. Turning to the league covenant, the president said the question of whether the heart of the league covenant wus to be cut out soon must como to u "showdown." It would mean tho viti ution of the whole plan, he assorted, if the nation were to adopt tho reser? vations to article ten, as proposed in tho senate. Ono by one, he said, the other ob? jections to the covenant had been dis? posed of. To all "candid minds," he asserted, it now was apprent that the Monroe doctrine was fully pro? tected, that there was no super-gov? ernment set up and that no dnnger was feared from the "speaking parts" given to the British dominions in tho league nssembly. Thus, continued Mr. Wilson, the whole discussion had settled down upon article ten, under which the members agree to preserve on another's territorial integrity against external aggression. The reservation read by the presi? dent was the same as that hel aid be? fore his audience last night at tho Salt Lake City tabernacle. By its provisions the United would assume no obligations to preserve the territo? rial integrity of other nations unless congress should so decide. Unless the United States went into the league now, he added, and assum? ed its full responsibility 1t would have to come in later with Germany. Characterizing the pence treaty as ucompleto reversal of the old auto? cratic processes of governments, the president nppcnlcd to the people to support the league of nations as a con? summation in the fight for democracy. The example to which the whole world now turned, Bnid the president, wn set by the United States in 117G, Some European statesmen, he declar? ed, had "affected to disregard that ex? ample, but now they all had to come under its influence. I The president's address, frequent? ly interrupted by cheering, was deliv? ered in a Chycnne theatre which was filled. Discussing America's place, and leadership, Mr. Wilson said the na? tion must keep its face turned for? ward just as the American aildiers always did in the great war. "They never thought, of turning back, not only," he said, "but they i never put any reservations on their service." Opponents of the treaty, Mr. Wil? son said, made many insupportable objections, but. had "debated serious? ly" only one-of these objections?the Shantung settlement. Ho went into the history of the Shnntung conces? sion nt lenght, pointing out that pres? ident McKinley did not protest when | Germany acquired Shantung rights now given to Japan, The settlement included in the Versailles treaty,( he nsseVtcd, was "unavoidable," while the league of nations offered the best hope for China's recovery of her lost province. -The United States, asserted the president, had no precedent in inter? national law even to protest against Japan's acquisition of the Shantung rights. But, he nddeil, under article eleven, of the league covenant^ it would be the friendly right of n nation to protest against any such situation which endangered peace, or the. ttvtt time, he said, the United States could under the league, become the "effec? tive friend" of China. A Mammoth Ear of Corn. Emory Mcarland brought an car of corn to this office, grown on his farm this year, which is a whopper. It is of the yeilow vnriety, measures near? ly 12 inches, has 20 rows and nenrly 1100 grains. It's great corn. Several parties who have seen it say they can "beat it." Talk is cheap. Neverthe? less, Tazewell is known for its fine corn and the present crop is one of the best in the history of the county. Beat Mcarland's ear if you can. Uoanokc Visitor's. Mr. A. D. W. Walton and his friend, Mr. J. H. Carmichael, two of Roa nokes prom'jient business men, were fn tov/n this week, so far as the re? porter could learn, on a sight-seeing and pleasure trip. Among other changes Mr. Walton noted, that Taze? well jiad taken a step forward in num ? bering tho houses of the town, not numbered exactly, however, as they do it in Ronnokc, but it is Tazcwell's way, and is all right. Tazewell al? ways had her own way of doing th'ng3, just a little different. Taze? well, Franklin and Botetourt coun? ties have made Roanoke what she is ?a fine city. Take these named coun? ties out of the city and keep them out, and Roanoke would flop back into "Big Lick" where it started from, some years ago perhaps. But, then what would happen to these coun? ties? Macadamizing on the Back Street. The work of macadamizing on thv back street, parallel with Mam street, has been about finished up to and in? tersecting the street running north by the Episcopal church. When put in shape, as will be done shortly, thii street will be used by the heavy traf? fic nnd thus relieveing the congestion on Main Street. Kincer and Vermil I lion are the contractors.

The Republican Lender. (New York Times.) Senator Lodge does not seem to he a great leader. The longer ho goes on lending the more we ore inclined to believe that Blainc and Thomas it. Reed wede somewhat more capable than he. He permits Senator Hitch? cock, who is no grout tactician him? self, to manoeuvre him into a false and ridiculous position. He becomes alarmed over the prospect that Mr. Hitchcock will undertake to force a vole on the Johnson amendment to tho Treaty, and that if he does there will be no way to prevent it except, by filibustering. A Republican Senate filibustering against peace would, of course, be an intolerable spectacle, especially when the only excuse Unit could be (liven would be that the Sen? ators necessary to a roll call were out on the stump "trailing Wilson." Si it becomes necessary to call the far-wandering Senators home, at least long enough to vote on the Johnson amendment. In the old days a word of command from such a lend? er as Blninc or Reed would have boon onough. Leader Lodge does his best; ho gets Ilorah back in Washington. But how to get Johnson? apparently Lender Lodge has small control over Follower Johnson, even in a case where Mr. Johnson's own amendment is concerned. So. Mr. Borah, who seemingly has more influence with Mr. Johnson, telegraphs himan ac? count of the situation, and and Mr. Johnson decides to return. That ac? complished, Mr. Lodge telegraphs Mr.I Johnson that h's return Is not really necessary after all. There are two binds of leaders In Washington. One is u real leader and the other is a "whip." The whip makes no pretensions us n lender. It is his task to see that everybody is there when emergencies ruquiru it. The leader plans policies. The place of whip is distinctly inferior to that, of leader. It is a hard thing to say of a Cabot, a scholar in politics, a man of heaven knows bow many years of experience in the high politics und the low, but the conclusion is irre? sistibly borne in upon us mat so far from being a leader, Henry nbot Lodge in not even a competent whip. Meanwhile, bow uslonished Gilbert M. Hitchcock must be! Doubtless, like most of the rest of the Semite, he has boon more or less under the spell of Mr. Lodge's reputation nml that Brahmin aura?if we may con? found for the moment two apparently irreconcilable ideas?which surrounds him. When he began his little essay in parliamentary tactics, did he real? ly expect to throw tho brooding Bud? dha of Nabanl into a panic und make manifest so glaringly the fntal lack of leadership In the Republican Party? The result must liuve surprised und delighted him. Mr. Hitchcock is a statesman of respectable attainments, but no genius; yet in the first round he has floored bis adversary in tho best, manner of David B. Hill. We would not detract from Mr. Hitchcock's achievement; but it. is doubtful if he could have done it if the Republican Party bad bad a real leader.

There arc many dead and dying cities in the world, and they lie scat? tered in the most unheard of places, from Siam to Rhodesia, from Mexi? co to Peru, to India to the hidden sol? itudes of Central Asia. It. should give us pause to think of their number and of our own littleness of the scale of time. It should teuch us, though if. has never tuught any of them yet, how transitory ore even the mightiest habitations of men, by how slender threads great empires are held up from ruin. None of the men und women who thronged the strets of these cities could ever have conceived that places so full of the trust nnd vigor of lifo would ono day be buried in the strang? ling jungle of lie, without a sound of wheel or human voice, silent under the desert sand. There are many of these cities in the East, nnd it is often a puzzle to know what led to their desertion. After the fashion of the East the traveler wi]l be told all mnnner of fnnciful h'storics, for, even today, tho Oriental accounts all material and reasonable explanations secondary to metaphysical abstrac? tions. So, nccording to local legends, these cities have been left on account of course, miraculous events, prophecies, portents, the sudden wishes of roynl ty, or the hysterical visions of holy men, but never thought the male faots of the being which was prob? ably really responsible for the evac? uation of at lenst half of them?the nnopheline mosquito nnd her legacy of malaria.

"What are the bugles blowing for?" Said Johimy-who-hud-stayod. "To toll tho news, to toll tho news," The Nurso-on-Duty said. "What makes your cheeks so white, so white?" Said Johnny-who-hnd-stnyed. "I'm fearing that I may not watch,' The Nurse on Duty said. "For General Pershing's coming, he? He is matching down this way, That's why they've got the banners out And all the streets are gay. That's way you hear auch cheering, That's why they shout 'Hurray!" For they'll march with General Per shing in themorning." "What makes my roommate breath so hard?" Asked Johnny-who-hnd-stnycd, "He's tearing up his fever chart," The Nurse on Duty said. "What mukec that rear-row man fall down ?" Asked Johnny-who-hnd-atayed, "He's trying to get oil' his coat," The Nurse on Duly said. "For they want to march with per shing, Fevered brow and broken limb Don't seem to them to matter If they only march with him. And they're calling to* euch other: 'Come on, Jack!' 'We're coming, Jim, For they want to march with Por shlng in tho morning." "What's thai so bright against the sun?" .Said Johnny-who-hnd-staycd. "Tho flag that shows the victory's won," The Nurse on Duty said. "What is that passing overhead?" Said Johnny-who-hnd-Btayed, "The spirit of the glorious dead," The Nurse on Duly said. "For they'll- going to march with Porshiug. They'll be there, bll we won't see. They will march with General Por? shiug Down the Lane of Victory. For the land that they have died for And the lands they helped set free They will inarch with General Por shing In the morning." At The Lust. The stream i? calmest when Itjienrn the tide.

All things are hushed before her as she throws O'er earth and sky her marble of re? pose; There is a calm, a beauty and a power That. Morning knows not, in the evening hour. Until the Evening must we weep and toil, Plow Llfo's stern farrows, dig the weedy aoil, Tread with ami feet our rough and stormy wny, And bear the heat and burden of the liny.

BOTH CLAIM GAIN IN BIG STRIKE Capital and Labor in Steel In? dustry in Death Struggle for Supremacy?Third Day of Gigantic Contest. Tho third day of tho groat stool Btriko passed without cither capital or labor having niado and uppnrcnt material gains. Prom their respective headquarters industrial leaders pud directors of the strike issued their usual conflict? ing statements which left still in doubt the exact number of workers who huvo walked out. William Z. K?ster, secretary of tho strikers na? tional committee, claimed that in tho j various steel copters 10,000 more men bad abandoned their posts bringing tho total of 342,000, but in tho cruci? al Pittsburg district officials of tho .United States Steel Corporation and I several "independents" assorted that labor was returning to the mills. According to roports from Pittsburg where union labor leaders hold a gen? eral parley to consider conduct of the strike, managers of the plants are seeking now to taku the offensive. Not content with merely holding what forces remain with them,' thoy are said to be trying to induce waver? ing strikers to return. On tho otnci hand labor's recruiting forces aro not Inactive, as shown by tho fact that organizers from the mino workers' union hnvo been culled to reinforce I agents uf the steel workers union in enrolling non-union workers.
