VOL. XXV, NO. 93. FREDERICK8B?RG, VA., TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 13. 1910 PRICE, 3 CENTS STRONG LETTER FROM JUDGE WALLACE i On Recent Local Option Election Deplores Further Agitation in Fredericksburg. Fredericksburg, Va., Sept. 9th, 1910. To The Free Lance: It may be an opportune time to publish some thoughts on the recent local option election and on the practical deductions therefrom, and in doing so I have only one purpose to accomplish, whether 1 succeed or not. and that purpose is to effect good and to benefit the people of my life-long home. My only temporal ambition now is to deserve the esteem of my fellow-citizens; the glamour of any personal preferment has no charm for me, nor would I willingly undertake any private or public trust. For the first time in my life of sixty-seven years 1 did not vote at the last local election on the qOsMUO*. submitted to the quahlied voters of "license" or "no license" to sell intoxicating liquors for the reason that I was not responsi? ble for present conditions and saw no hope of bettering them. 1 have given this question much thought MX. study, observing personally the effect of the laws of foreign countries, as well as the experience of different sections of our country, since the Neal Dow prohibition wave which swept some seventeen Northern States from 1S?1 to 1866, and 1 have long thought that pro? hibition is not an adequate remedy for the moral lepiosy of drunkenness, and except in the rural districts, the benefits frum it are more than balanced, in my judgment, by the injuries from it. and that calm and thoughtful students of government could devise a much better system to reduce the injury of liquor to the minimum. But this is not the time nor the place to discuss that question. 1 have en? deavored carefully to inform myself of the vote and the voters at the recent election here and I am satisfied that a large majority of the ir.tluential citizens voting have determined that intoxicating liquor shall never be s ?Id in Freder icksburg under th? existing license laws of Virginia; therefore, in my judgment. our citizens had as well take this determination as a fixed fact, adjust them? selves accordingly, and stop all further agitation on this qu.-t-tion until some more adequate remedy than prohibition can be digest?-) by th? most thoughful and scientific, patriotic and philanthropie minds. JUDGE A. W. WALLACE As to the material injury to Fredericksburg by closing the saloons, although 1 have personally inquired of many merchants, there is such a difference ol opinion that I have not been able to conclude, nor do I think they have been able from the short "dry" season to conclude as to any correct result; certainly there has been no organized body of business men protesting against conditions existing before the recent election. Our mechanics and workmen, as I know by experience as employer, are getting first-class wages and are busy at their various avocations, so that it would seem that the only citizens pecuniarily in? jured are those who have previously been granted licenses to sell liquor. In this Democratic country of ours it is a principle of government that private privileges must give way to the public interests, and that a majority of the vot? ers conclusively determine what the public interests are. Some twenty-five years ago the Fredericksburg Acqueduct Company exclu? sively supplied this city with water, the stock in the market, of which I was a large holder, was above par and paid a large dividend. A majority of the vot? ers rightly decided that the public interests required that the new water works should be built, virtually destroying the income over expenses of the Acqueduct Co. So, while we may regret that any of our citizens should be deprived of his support from any particular occupation, we must, as good citizens, submit to the will of the majority. But to me there seems another and stronger and holier reason why all fur? ther opposition or agitation here should forever stop as long as present license laws exist in Virginia, and that reason is that this agitation is injurying the cause of religion and undermining the influence of the church. A civil contest, which breeds and ferments the excitement incident to these local option and pro? hibition elections, alienates a large body of jpod citizens from the church. It is not generally thought that participation in practical politics develops high ideals, and it is hard for the ordinary citizen to eliminate the methods em? ployed at local option elections from those employed at other elections. Even our clergymen, all of whom are my friends and my Christian brothers, and all of whom are faithful followers of the Master, but who, after all, are only men, in their zeal and enthusiasm are sometimes inclined to take such an excited and zealous interest as to cause the advocates of the other side to imagine that they are being excommunicated beyond the pale of redemption if they vote the "wet" ticket. Church bells during the voting are rung in their faces and they think that every blow of the bell tongue, whether so intended or not, is a note of defiance from the Church or exultation of the Church over their defeat. Even the ladies, (God bless them, they are all right from the crowns of their heads to the soles of their feet, mind and body, and they always want to do good, I love all of them), but even they are apt to partake of the excitement, and some of them impress "Mrs. Smith" or "Mrs. Jones," who "won't sign the paper," with the idea that she is consigned to the list of those who desire the moral destruction of the little children. These agitations do harm, motives are misunderstood, neighbors are alien? ated, domestic peace is disturbed and respect for the church is impaired, and re? ligion consequently suffers; and 1 do trust and pray that all of our citizens will recognize existing facts, and joining hand with hand and heart with heart, will follow the precept of the golden rule and Christ's added commandment to the decalogue. Then there will be more real reform of all kinds than by all the statute laws ever written by the hand of man. Very truly yours, A. W. WALLACE. - A Wilson Heater - Will Save 40 Per Cent.

"Then what a glorious thing it, is my brethren, to know that these bodies of ours are immortal; that they shall come forth in the resurrection morn, and the complete man, soul and body reunited, shall live forever in the paradis?- of God." When in the Grand Lodge of Virginia in February, 190K, Grand Master S. J. Quinn uttered these words, no one present dreamed that he woulil be so soon called upon to drop the sprig of evergreen in the grave of the amiable, distinguished and exemplary man and Mason; this friend and brother whose life was blessed with the esteem and affection of his brethren, the admira? tion and respect of all those wilh whom he came in contact, and which has now in the fullness of time been crowned with the benedictions of Almighty li??d. Whe'her as a gallant foliower of l>ee and Jackson of blessed memory, who have crossed over the river to rest un the shade of the tree, or as a loyal, valiant soldier of the cross, Capt (?uinn was faithful unto death. His concep? tion of the position of Grand Master of Masons was that he should at all times "hold himself not so subservient as not to be able to rebuke the loftiest when necessary, nor so exalted as not to be able to whisper loving counsel ami cheer in the ear of the humblest brother." Upholding at all times the dignity and honor of his office, his hand was ever ready and willing to sustain the falling brother, whisper gnud coun? sel in hi?* ear and if possible aid a refor? mation. At the aarai&H <>f the Blue Ki-t^e, marking th?- junction point of four coun'.i.s. Clarke, Warn n, Fauquier and l-?tudoiiii, there stood for so long a period that the rnamory of the "Kiest Inhabitant runneth nut bach to tl trary. an itsntense poplar tree. It was to the people of that section a land? mark, an altar and a shrine. On MM the mountain is th?' beautiful valley of Virginia, with the Shenan Jiiah river gleaming like asir.?r thread as through wood a.?l meadow it gees to the sea; on the other lie the -Ms and peaceful valleys of in? comparable Fauquier and lyuiduun. Sitting in its shade one afternoon for . refreshment, I was struck vvith ?.ne peculiarity of this mighty of the foreot I noticed that all of its greatest liaba and branches, like mighty arms, were outstretched toward the east as if to extend a silent greeting t ; the rising sun as it kisses into light and warmth and beauty the I valii-ys at the mountain's foot, it -,. ins to me, it wan with the life of this pillar of Israel. His faith tirmly grounded upon the summit of eternal truth, the impregnable rock at Holy Scripture, he stood ever calm and aereoe, unmoved by the wind? of temp? tations, undaunted by the wa\? *. of ad? versity, ever ready arid ?willing to ghre reel and shelter and protection to nil d?.-tr? m I brother Master Masons, their widowa ; nd orphans, wbereooever r?aperaad, ever watching and waiting with arms outstretched to (-r?-et the Sun of Righteousness when He should arise with healing m his wings to translate him from this imperfect to that all per? fect, glorious ana celestial lodge above, where the Supreme Architect of the universe in ilia glory presides. It may be that no granite mausoleum may contain his ashes, no marble monument be erected to his memory, no magnifi? cent pipe organ or memorial window may speak to the silent worshiper of his many virtues, but as long as life shall last and memory be faithful to her trust, there will be enshrined in the hearts of the Masons of Virginia the name of Silvanus Jackson Quinn.

Whereas the present legislation, known as the Byrd law, touching the sale of hard cider, is s?- broadly liberal as to make it possible for almost any person to sell it almost anywhere under almost any circumstances, to almost anyone, and whereas it is proving an element of disturbance and menace to our public services, and especially so in our country places, and more es? pecially at the night services, and whereas we see the evil and deleteri? ous effects of such traffic upon the life of our communities, both town and rural, and whereas some of our Baptist people, influenced by the love of gain, though ill-gotten, are taking advantage of their legal right to sell intoxicating cider, and this in utter disregard of their moral obligation, thus crippling their own influence for good and fast? ening a stigma upon their church and denomination, as well as degrading their fellow-creatures through drunk? enness and endangering the life, peace and property of the community. There? fore be it resolved, 1st. That we, as an association, heartily disapprove of such unwise and hurtful legislation and request that our people do every thing consistent with Christian dignity and the requirements of good citizenship to secure its repeal or its radical modification in the inter eat of temperance and sobriety. 2nd. That where members of our churches so far forget the dignity of their Christian selfhood as to be will? ing to profit financially by the unholy traffic in this unchristian business, that we, as churches, call their attention to these resolutions and seek earnestly to dissuade them from it C.

There is only one way to cure deafness, and that is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the mucous lining of the Euatachian Tube. When this tube is inflamed you have a rumbling aound or imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed, Deafness is the result, and unless the inflammation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be destroyed forever; nine caaes out of ten are caused by catarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed con? dition of the mucous surface. We will ?rive one hundred dollars for any case of Deafness (caused by ca? tarrh) that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh Cure. Send for circular?, free. F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo, 0.

Cincinnati turn?-sl out In numbers and Mr. Roose? velt followed out the plans as -hey had been laid out, but that was all. Mr Hoosevslt took occasion twice In his speech before a big au?lience in Music hall to say a kind word for the Bl lie spoke of the establish? ment by comeres*] o! a bureau of min - .uni ni referred to the commis ?toi appointed by Mr Taft to loot in to aock iiisiier-) m itit- capitalization un>l Mockl 0< railroads. He ?ii?!n't due.I mi th?'-e thing*, but h?- m? n ?horn simply to show that he la willing to give en ?lit to the pn wheie he betten I the administration had done well. The applause was mild here. The colonel didn't lose an oppor? tunity to further the cause of the new nationalism He spoke of it in con no? t Ion with the regulating of cor? porate n> and in regard to conserva? tion. Ho said that he believes tha? the goternment must have the power to ?Jeel with such matters rather than the Individual states. Cox Not In Lorimer's Class. Those who tried to stir up trouble for th?- colonel when the1/ learv Boss (a-eorge H Coa, Oarry Hernaaaa and ltuj tijrBlclu bad beea mvit-.i to attend the recepUoa at Congressman Loagworth'a bouae, failed utterly. Mr. ltoosev?'li offered no objection to the*e BMI I ii1I.uk at the home of his son-in law. He >:iid tliat he didn't place Hosa Cox In the same category with Senator LsOriaer, whom he snubbed In Chicago. Th" ?-oloncl expressed the opinion thai t! re la no comparison or simi? larity between the two men, for Cox ' hobt public office and isu't un? der the suspicion of any corruption ekergoo, that Is so far as he knows. He was ?julte willing to meet Cox and the others, Just as he is willing to meet Barnes and the old guaril In New York. Mr. Roosevelt took up the matter of conservation because he had been discussing the problem of waterways in connection with the work being done on the Ohio. He hoped that at no distant time the national authorities will take up seriously the project for the deep waterway channel from the great lakes to the gulf. The colonel took up the rest of his address In treating of various evils. He stated that he does think that the country Is In bad condition, but that it la a pretty good country. He said that be was for the corporation strong as long as they tend to business. Again he brought out the point that a good many of the evils brought on by the corporations are due to the lax laws which allow them to act as they do. The new nationalism Is what we now need. It was a day of comparative ease for Mr. Roosevelt. He was tired after the speech In Chicago and what went with it, and Congressman Longworth tried to make things as quiet as possible. On the platform the colonel appeared to be just a bit all In to tbose who hare seen him the past three weeks. His speech lacked his customary Are. Mr. Roosevelt dined with Mr. and Mrs. Longworth. He dropped into an original grand opera In Music hall, and after that paid a visit to Richelieu hall to say a few words to a labor nnlon. Then he went home to bed. Today the colonel will stop at Co? lumbus for two hours. Then hp will proceed to Plttshurg for the last speech of the trip.
