??OS,mCAT, NOTES.
Btoodsfaed 5?rcvent?tl In Le? County.
Politics arc waxing warm in this Sena?
torial district and count y. The candidate* 1
?ra actively moving around soliciting votes;
and holding joint discussion:?.
Jas. B. Craft, the Farmers' Alliance
Candidate for the state Senate, was in
town this week. He went down to Olin
gers Tuesday expecting to address a meet?
ing there, hut as the meeting had not been
advertised, there was no crowd out and
consequently no speaking.
Dr. M. B. Spencer, the Farmers'* Alli?
ance candidate for thc House of Delegates
in Lee comity, was disappointed at the
same time in not finding a crowd assem?
bled at^ Olingora. Dr. Spencer was in
town Tuesday night and seemed very
confident of election. He has been stong
ly endorsed by the democrats of his coun?
ty, thinks he ought to win with both par?
ties at bis back.
Dr. Spencer has been having a warm
time with the editor of the Lee Couuty
Republican, a newspaper published at
Joncsville. Thc Doctor shows that thc
Republican has been grossly misrepresen ?
ting a speech made by him before the
Democratic Convention which endorsed
him. He says at first that he took ho no?
tice of the misrepresentation, but on its
being repeated he went to the editor's office
and accused him of tying. At this the
editor fired up and exclaimed: "That is
a hard thing for a man to take in his own
office"
"Take that or a good sound threshing,"
ensued the doctor.
The irate cdtior then, it is said, walked
around behind a table in his office and
commenced to draw a pistol. Mr. Goeus,
superintendent of schools, walked in be?
tween the combatants and prevented
bloodshed.
Senator Mills is closely at work and it
is understood is making a splendid flight.
The Democrats must get down to it if they
want to beat Mills for he is a hustler.
He has been canvassing.Dickinson coun?
ty this week. *

What Next?
To thc Editor of The Post:
Sir.?Can it be possible that the City
Council does noj understand that thc use
of our streets is a valuable privilege; that
in giving a part of them up to private use,
or to a limited public use, they may in
fringc.pn the rights of the public not
benefit ted thereby V
We are now paying a heavy tax to a
monopoly which has secured a franchi.se
as a gift from a former council, an exor?
bitant price for wafer, which a little fore?
sight alone might have prevented,but for
whir at this lime there is no remedy,
though other plaees having pet them?
selves in like predicament after years of
endurance and then of controversy and
battling, have at length succeeded in
throwing off the yoke so quietly put upon
them.
But our water company seems now to he
less aggressive than cur Valley Street
Railway Company?and we grumble less
at thc charge of 15 cents for a mile ride,
than at the L. & N. charge of 4 cents per
<m?le; less at thc high freight rates, be
?cause.. it is said, " rates will be reduced
wheu the traffic warrants it." To this I
answer that ihc traffic will never warrant
it, in the opinion of its officers, unless
?some restriction or agree waul is made by
?which they will be forced to come down.
Each additional street given to their use,
each track laid with Or without permission'
given the company, adds by so much to its
?trentgh as a monopoly, and lengthens
?the time when the city will be able to con?
trol it, as eventually it must do.
Our principal avenue was no sooner
?graded than it s?o? torn up for- railroad
irack-laying and has been hardly passa
?hie since, excepting at. street crossings;
.no work has been done to allow vehicles
to pass from one side of the
Avenue to the other, and travel has been,
virtually excluded from Wood Avenue j
where track is laid. Nor do the city
grades appear to have been adopted ex?
cepting at thc convenience of the eom
ipany. If this were all, we might rest
'Content in that it is no worse. Apparently
our council had some misgivings thai the
.railroad should not control all our ave?
nues, for we were told that it had refused
<one of them asked for, to make a more
?direct line between the two depots ami that
tthe matter appeared ended, but at its next
meeting its scruples were overruled, and
&be company gained its cause, the rights
<of the people are given away without any
?benefit accruing to them, and without
itbeir having even an opportunity for pro?
test.
Believing that such opportunity is still
open on thc last advance made by the
?Company, I now protest against having
the use of one-half of our net- long
promised and only road bridge practically
destroyed by the switch now being put in
;at the South end of the bridge. Admit
sting that for present uses the single road
iway on the west side of the bridge is suffi?
cient, thut when traffic is too great for
'that to answer, the purpose apart will be
.forced to thc other side; the fact that it
?will be forced?and no one will want to
.run the risk of driving over the two or
three railroad crossings unless forced to
do so?is sufficient reason for enjoining
the building of the switch. Both sides of
t\\a bridge iwilong to the public, and the
?city has no right to allow one side to be
cut off from public use or convenience
simply for the accommodation of a pri?
vate corporation.
And in order that the owners of-the
.*trents, our citizens, may have some voice
iu the disposition of their property, it is
euggeated to the city fathers that before
*hey give away any more of our rights,
?they submit to us such questions involv?
ing our rights through thc columns of the
Big Stone Post, giving those most inter
tested at least a hearing.

A ],oui?vme & XHnhvllie Train Huna Over
und Kills John Taylor Kour the Depot.
As ihc peetiou hands on the Louisville
& Nashville were going to work yesterday
morning Ihey found lying alongside the
truck near the depot, the body of a man
who had Keen terribly mangled. In fact
the body was so terribly out to pieces as
to be almost beyond recognition as it lay
strewn along the track for 200 yards. The
i supposition uns that the body ??? run
j over by a freight (rain going east at 'J:10 |
o'clock, a. m. The dead m?u turned out
to he the 18 year old Ron of Wesley Tay
lor, who lives in sight of the place'whe're
the dead hoy was found. His name was
John Taylor, aged IS year?,and he worked
as a section hand on the L. & N. The
last seen of him alive was about 11:31) p.
m., in company with John Plaster. John
Edene, who lives near the home of Tay?
lor, within the town limit?, said that the
bby left his house that night about 7::>0
o'clock p. m.
Justice Ferguson was notified onlyH'es
terday morning of the finding of**the
body, and a coroner's jury was at once
summoned to view the remains.
The jury consisted of Horace F. Fox, C.
M. Harris*, C. W.Evans, % M. Young, W.
T. Kodgens and J. M. Taylor.
Wesley Taylor was the first witness
called. He identified the body as that of
his son who left home about dark that
night in company with John Plaster, who
lives with Mr. Eden, about 1(50 yards dis?
tant.
B. F. Wilson, the engineer on the train
that passed about '.>::!') a. m. He saw no
man on the track as he passed, but saw
blood on the wheels of his engine this
morning. Ke would have seen any man
who standing on the track, but could not
have wejj seen one who was lying on the
track. Was running at eight orten miles
an hour Where the body was found.
Miller, the fireman on the engine was
leaning out of his engine, but saw no one
on the track. S:nv the blood on the right
band drivers of the engine; no blood on
the pilot.
Mr. J. P. Moore, flic station agent said
that he left the depot about 7 o'clock and
retired about I) o'clock; he lives near the
depot, and sometime after retiring he was
aroused by loud voices and cursing rit the
Grate and Mantel Factory; he raised the
window and called out to the persons to
behave themselves; he recognizad that
one of the persons was John Plaster; he
was accompanied by another whom he did
not recogni/.e; one vi the parties sccuiech
to be quite drunk and.was being sup?
ported; li2 could not say which was the
the drunken party.
M. C. KayloPj track-walker came out
from the depot about 6:30 in the morning
on a hand car; soon after leaving the de?
pot he saw laving on the side of the track
what he thought was a liver: further on
there were other indieal ions of something
having been killed, and he concluded that
the train had killed a hog, but a few feet
further on he run up on the dead body of
a man.
Stout, one of the section hands, made
about the same statement. He stated
that he recognized the body as that of
John Taylor chiefly by the clothes he
found.
John Plaster, the man last seen with
the deceased was the next witness. He
stated that he went up in town from Tay?
lor's home that night about dark; went to
the saloon, got a pint of whiskey; wc
drank that up and went back and got an?
other; came across the East Fifth street
bridge; he did'nf remember anything that
happened after this until he got to (he
residence of a Mr. bishop some distance
below where the killing occurred on the
L. k N.; he got to bishop's about day?
break; he remembered nothing of the
vest he nicked up ai (Irate and .Mantel
Factory the night before; he said that he
had been drunk with Taylor several times
before.
Doc Harson, who works at (he Grate
and Mantel Factory stated (hat about'
11 :.'!!> he was in the factory when Plaster
and Taylor came and shook the factory
door and raised a disturbance, when Mr.
Moore raised his window and quieted
them: (hey then went off down the track;
it seemed to htm that Plaster was the
drunkest of the two; it was about fifteen
minutes after they left that a train from
Norton went West,
Drs. Howard and Kunkel were sworn,
and testified that they could find no evi?
dence of violence on the body, of any
other violence than the mangling of the
train, but that if there had been any foul
play thai they could scarcely discover it
in the condition of thebodv.
THE SOCIAL SEASON.
Inaugurated at the Appalachian Club Last
Friday Evening.
After several months of social inactivi?
ty the gay season was inaugurated in this
town last Friday evening, the 9th, in one
of the pleasantest receptions ever given
by the Appalachian Club. This associa?
tion is u social club for gen-lernen, occu
i pying the suite of rooms on the second
floor of the Avers building. The club has a
large membership. The President, Mr. H.
Hi BulTittjlold a Post reporter that the roll
includes the names of some forty residents
of the town and about an equal number
of non-residents who have assisted in es?
tablishing and fitting up this cozy rendez?
vous in their favorite southern city. It is
a standing rule of (he club to entertain
the ladies once a month, but as many of
them have been out of town dining the1
summer, the regular receptions were sus?
pended for awhile. The entertainment
last week was in the nature of a welcome
to the returning fair ones and to the visi?
tors in town, and it was most heartily en?
joyed by all. The ladies present were,
Mrs. J.*W. Fox, Mrs. J. F. Bullitt, Jr.,
Mrs. Howard, Mrs. Harrison and Miss
Harrison, from the University of Va.;
Mrs. W. C. Harrington, Mrs. W. E. Addi?
son; the Misses Fox, Fowler, Moore, and
Harrington. The House Committee had
provided a band of music and a delight?
ful luncheon. Dancing was the feature of j
the evening?Jh.e ladies far excelling the
gentlemen in this graceful art; but every
one admitted that W, Q. IJarrij.igton's
pas seul in the Virginia Reel was an fin.-j
mensc success, and done In very fast
time.

tackle to pull the heavily laden wagons
and boiler past difiicu't places in the road,
and to lower them otf the crest of the
mountain.
Tfcanks to the 1. I. Co.. the road is now j

"COME SO?TH! YOUNG MAN."
President Harrison, on his tour through
the South, after having seen the won?
derful growth of Lynchhurg, Bedford
City, Roanoke, Salem, Ragford. Pulaski,
Wythevilie and Abingdon and the indus?
trial development in progress "long the
line of the Norfolk k Western Railroad,
and viewed the country of Southwest
Virginia, said in his speech to the people
of bsistot. Va.:
"My Fellow Citizens:?J 'nave found not
only pleasure, but instruction in- riding
to-day through the portion of the State
of Virginia that is feeling in a very strik?
ing way the impulse of new development.
It is extremely gratifying to notice that
those hidden sources of wealth which
were so long unobserved and so long un?
used are now being found, and that those
regions, once so retired, occupied by pas?
toral people, having difficult access to the
center of population, are now being rapid?
ly transformed into busy manufacturing
and commercial centers. In the early
settlement of this country emigrants
poured over the Alleghanies and blue
Ridge . like waters over au obstructing
ledge, seeking the fertile and attractive
farm regions of the great West. They
passed unobserved these marvelous hid?
den stores of wealth which are now being
brought .into use.
"Having tilled those great In: .-ins oi the
West they are now turning back to Vir?
ginia and West Virginia and Tennessee
to bring about the full development and
production for which time is ripe and
which will surprise the world. It has not
been long since every implement of iron,
domestic, agricultural and mechanical,
was made for you in other States. The
iron point of the wooden mold board plow,
with which the early farmers here turned
the soii, came from distant State.-. But
now Virginia and Tennessee are stirring
their energies to participate In a large
degree in mechanical productions and in
the great awakening of Amcticau com?
merce and American irifiuen: j which will
lift the nation to a place among the na?
tions of the world never before attained.
''What is to hinder us when we have
secured tiie markets of our own States
that we shall reach oat and enter into
successful competition in the markets of
other parts of the world: I say what is
to binder this people; possessing by the
^Providence of God, nil the elements i f<
material wealth; endowed with a genius j
and energy unsurpassed among the na?
tions of the earth., shall again have on the
great seas a merchant marine living the
tlag of the common country and carrying
its commerce into every sea and uphold?
ing its honor in every port?
"I am glad to-day to stand for this mo?
ment among you and lo express my sym?
pathy with any and every interest that
tends to develop you as a people, i am
glad to stand with yon on one common
platform ot respect lor the constitution;
differing as some of us may do in our
opinions as to what the law should be and
how it should be applied; having in view
one common devotion of obedience lo the
law as the majority of our people, by
their own representatives, make it.
"I shall carry away from here a re?
newed impulse lo public duty; a new in?
spiration as a citizen, ami that too, of a
country whose greatness is oulj dawning.
''And now lot me express to you the
pleasure I shall have in every good that
can come to you as a community and to
each of you as individuals. May peace,
prosperity and social order dwell in all
your families, and tiie fear and love of
God in every home."
