MANY CONVICTIONS FOR ELECTION FRAUDS [Special to the Tlmes-Dlspatch.] Bristol, Va.; August 2.?Pursuing h!s rlelerinlned courso to purify elections In Southwest Virginia, regardless of what lit may cost. Judge It. A. \V, Skeeh, pi the Circuit Court, has now pushed the work of Investigation, Into Dickonson county, which county adjoins Lee, and where, ir is alleged, election brlb i !hs wen- as uuincroua in recent elec? tions as in ii'" county of Lee, where mot,- than 200 men arc under Indict? ment. While the work was beg tin i.eo county first, the first cases to bu brought to trial were in the county o? Dickenson. Dickenson, being remote in th" mountains, has neither telegraph nor telephone Connection with the out? side world. The court is held at Clint wood, the county seat, where reside many people of high intelligence. The community is a prosperous one and has long had the advantages of good schools and churches. Judge Skeen's Investi? gation has caused moro than the ordi? nary commotion among the people of that county, and already some cases have been dlsposod of. Asked for a statement regarding what has been accomplished by Judge .-'keen's probe in Blckenson county, a prominent attornoy, who practices at the Cllntwood bar. summed up the work as follows: "At the March and July terms of the Circuit Court at Clintwood tin- grand .lory returned 105 indictments for vio? lations tif tin- election laws; At the July t.-rm, which closed on July 19, thirty-nine of those Indicted were called to trial. Of this number nine w ere found not guilty-upon trial. The remainder either confessed or wore tried ami found guilty. Those who confessed wore given tho minimum lino of $100, jiT-.il those who went to trial were fined from $125 to $i5u each. "Ity operation of law, nil those eon !'< ssiiig or convicted at trial stand dis? franchised until the disability Shall be r< moved by the Governor of the state. Among those convicted are two prom? inent farmers living near Cllntwood who are worth from $,r,0w> to $ 10.uOd each. Among those Indicted and yet to be tried are thiec prominent minis? ters and many prosperous citizens. j "In addition to the foregoing indict-j mints. tio> grand Jury at the March and July terms found over L'nii Indict-] menta for the Illicit sale of whiskey in tlie county. Theso await trial, which will very likely bP reached at the Sep t< mber term of tho court." Commenting upon these facts, the. attorney said: "This will, in my opinion, go a long 1 way toward purifying elections, as It is undisputed that ?moonshine" has op- ] orated conspicuously In ovary political: campaign. All the substantial cltIsens of thu county, Irrespective of party, are In harmony with Judge Skeen and the other olllcials In their effort to stamp out these evils. So far as I know, there have been no threats made In Dickonson county, nor has any obstacle been thrown in thu way of the authori? ties in their effort to make a complete and thorough Investigation, proseeu lion and tormlhdtloh of nil the elcotlon nnd revenue violations in the county.
