GO
FOR CONGRESS?Dm DISTRICT,
JUDGE II. S.K.MORISON,
OF SCOTT.
Bio Stone Gap is Democratic.
W, S. Matfikws makes a good
Chairman, and is going to do Rome
good work in tin's campaign.
Parson Massey ami .!. II. Ho-je
are going to engage in joint debate
in lloge's district. Massey should
have more sense than to dignify
Hoge*s canvas by Iiis presence. Jt
seems that the Parson likes to debate
with the vulgarians. Last year be
and Sam Jones made monkies of
themselves by throwing mud at cacli
other.
When Gen'l Walker tnakesO'Fer
rall tuck his tail and run home, I>ig
Stone Gap can send a man to meet
Stonewall, and we will guarantee
that if there is any tail tucking,
Walker will be the man that will do
it. We refer to Capt J. F. Bullitt,
Jr. lie is not an adept at slashing
faces with a knife, but when he nets
on the platform with Walker he will
?stay there. Bulldozing cuts no b'g
iire with him.
John Wannamakki:, Harrison's
Postmaster-General, seems to think
that a Democratic tariff is a pretty
good thing. This is what be says-;
Everything that free wool and tar?
iff influences can do to put prices on
a low level has been much more than
discounted in the handsome new j
dress stuff that are crowding to the
counters every day. This fifty-inch
serge, for instance?black and navy
blue, worth fifty cents by any ineas-j
ure of dresH goods value, never be
fore heard of at Jess?the price is
thirty-seven and a half cents. This
Jill wool camel's hair neige?navy
blue, black, brown, modes?only a
little while ago we could barely meet,
the demand at fifty cents; the price is.
twenty-five cents.
The Issues Involved In the Present
? Campaign.
The issues involved in this cam-1
paign are those for which the Demo?
cratic party has been contending for
years. They are the same identical
issues that were submitted to the
?.country at the last Presidential elec?
tion, and upon which the Democratic
party whs placed in power. Now the
.question is, are the people going to
countermand the instructions given
their representatives before they have
fairly commenced upon their work?
Are they willing and ready to con?
demn before they have seen the result
?of it? Would not such a course be
ibe height of absurdity? It is no
easy matter to undo in a short tinie
the result of thirty years of cwrnp-j
lion, and the Post believes that the
Democrats will have an opportunity'
to demonstrate beyond the shadow of
a doubt, that protection is one of the
-most blighting curses, with which
\\ve have ever been afflicted.
Tbo disaster and corruption .that
lias ever followed in its wake is tcrri
ble to contemplate. The highway
robbery that has been going on un?
checked right in our midst is horri?
ble. All around us are men who
-have grown many times millionaires
by robbing tine people, sanctioned,1
aided and abetted by tbo Republican!
parly. Ask Andrew Carnegie how
,hc managed to build up such a
jnarauioth fortune. He built it up
under a protective tariff by robbing
the entire people of this country.
Protecting the laboring man, by
makin*g him pay double the cost for
.unnessarios of life. Protecting Mr.
Carnegie from any competion, letting
?him absolutely monopolize the man?
ufacture sf steel, and the laborer pay
for this monopoly. A more gigantic
fraud was never launched upon as, as
a monument to our utter ignorance of
the most simple things. Why don't
tho laborer grow rich and opulent?
Why is it that he is the down trod
4ot% .one, and can only get justice by
joining a ajrike? Making millions
apou millions of dollars by this fraud?
ulent policy the mou thm benefitted
could contribute and do contribute,
imiDious to the Republican corrup?
tion fund, Protection is an abortion
?iom the hatred of the people who
?marched through Virginia in '01.
Fmiug that the waving of the bloody
shirt would no longer excite the sen-.
timcnta of the North, they
had to hunt up some new scheme of
subjugation for the South. As a re?
sult this progeny, conceived in fraud
and brought forth in iniquity was
launched upon us. The tariff has
always been a bone of contention, be?
tween the North and South. The
j first great compromise effected be
I twecn them was when the South
agreed to let the North have protec?
tion for manufactured articles in re?
turn for which the South was not to
be molested in reference to slavery.
It is well known how well that bar?
gain was kept. It is well known
j how those angelic witch burning
[philanthropists, took away the prop
pity of the South without compensa?
tion.
Granting,however,that a protective
tariff is all that its wild adherents
claim for it. Our markets are to
the west and if foreigners can send
their products across the
ocean, and across this conti?
nent and compete with us, then
it is time for us to close our shops.
They may bo enabled to compete with
New England. In fact, those New
England factories would long since
have closed their mills and mov?
ed South but tor the iniquities of
protection, and that is just what they
will do when they find that the gov?
ernment is no longer going to lend a
hand to this gigantic fraud. Wfi
have natural resources unsurpassed
and we want no class legislation to
enable the manufacturer of our raw
material to grow opulent. We want
every tub to stand upon its own bot?
tom and we want equal rights for all
and no favor shown to a few. This
is Democracy, pure and simple, dia?
metrically opposed to Republicanism,
which is the oposita. The old pater?
nal ides lingers with the hepuhl/cai)
like a leech to the human flesh. The
*hl idea of corruption, which was its
baptismal name, lingers long, like
the fv.ot.ts of winter. It may bob up
under a new form, but when stripped
of its gaudy colors tlifi ?cy r <le Iis of
infamy and fraud is plainly visible,
and will be till time is no more. No
party with such principles can stand
the test of time. Its success must
necessarily be short lived.
A New View of Woman's Right?
Question.
Woman's rights continues to be
discussed both in this country and in
Europe. Quite recently a new view
of the question has been advanced by
S. Rossman that is exciting much
comment.
The Post is in entire accord with
Mr. Rossman upon the general prop?
osition that woman's sphere is scpa
rate and distinct from that of man.
Her Kingdom should he exclusively
composed of the beatifnl little world
called home. We think with Mr.
Rossman, that when we open the
doors of man's vocation to woman,
we will he signing the cjeath warrant
to all that is noble in man's nature.
With no shrine of beauty at wnieb to
I worship sentiment must necessarily be?
come dull, honor less valuable and
mental and physical deterioation in?
evitable. This would be brought
about by a variety of causes, not one
of which is mentioned by Mr. Ross
man. On the contrary, he agrees
with the Post in the conclusion ar?
rived at, but attains it by an entire?
ly different and erroneous process. The
Post-thinks .that the cause of this
deterioation would be the result of
business intercourse: That feeling
of respect and adoration we feel for
woman would necessarily be blunted
by our business contact with her.
That greatest of all graces, a modest
reticence, would give way to a voice
like Miss AmeliaJEdivards, .the Egyp?
tologist; and refinement to coarse
vulgarity.
Mr. Rossman's argument is that
aptitude for certain profession are
generally speaking inherited by man.
As a corollary to this proposition lie
asserts that a man who takes a mas?
culine woman for a wife is likely to
have masculine daughters as offspring,
.and then propounds this query: Is
it desirable, harmful, or immaterial
that the characteristics of sex
should be obliterated? He asserts in
answer to this that the efFacement of
6ex distinctions, would destroy one
of the most important nrovisons
designed by nature to prevent the
deterioation of the race; that the un?
ion of individuals with like tastes and
instincts is in direct violation of the
laws of nature, and that must inevit
ably produce a progeny which is ill
fitted to take part in the strugglo for
existence.
Mr. Rossraan expresses his conclu?
sion very forceful, but the manner
by which he reaches it would puzzle
any modern metaphysician. No one
jyUh a scintilla of sense would main?
tain that it uoyld be desirable to ob?
literate Hex distinctions, Pven vycre
such a thing possible. By what pro?
cess the offspring of the intermarriage !
of a masculine man aud woman would
tend to obliterate the characteristic*
of woman is not very palpable to or?
dinary thinkers. It is not maintain?
ed tliat the isasculine woman is typ?
ical of her sex. On the contrary she
\h the worst spcciinan of a woman.
Mr. Ilossman confounds acquired
taste with character?the result of
innrriage between persons closely re?
lated by ennsanqninity, and that of
persons having tastes similar. It is
admitted that the mar riage of a man
and woman, closely related by con?
sanguinity tends to the deterioation
of the race; but it is most emphatic
i icallv denied that marriage between
; persons of similar tastes has any
such tendency. The criterion is the |
taste.
The breeding of a race horse with
a Perclieron or heavy draught horse
does not improve cither the running
qualities of the racer or the strength
of the other. On the contrary it is
very apparent that both strains are
losers by the cross. So Mr. ftose
man's proposition that the marriage
of persons with similar tastes tends
to the deterioatum of the race is
wholly untenable?that u the
taste is noble and elevating instead of
corrupt and degrading.
The Country's Triumph.
There can no longer be a doubt
that the present century, great
Iii? itn triumph*, in science and prog?
ress, has one o?' the most notable
triumph, and one the world has long
attempted in vain to solve. This is
the art of navigating the air. Hir
S. Maxim has unquestionably solved
the problem. The State has on sov
eral occasions given accounts of his
"acroplainc" and its operation, Mr.
Maxim has spent time and fortune in
developing it. As he says, tll have
demonstrated that a good and relia?
ble motor can be made with sufficient
. power for its weight to drive a flying
machine-; ihal a very heavy flying
machine may be made to i$i?S jtscif
in the air with water, fuel and three;
men on board; and that it may Ijft,
in addition to all this, 2,000 pounds.
It now only remains to continue the
! experiment with a view of learning
the art of manepjuyering the machine."
Unquestionably this is iht great?
est and most signal triumph of the;
century over nature. We speak of
electricity revolutionizing the world,
1 biljb the power to navigate the air
opens larger possibilities. It IS
within the limits of reason jlo say that
within rive years from now the air'
will be traveled by a line of great
airships. \Vc will have at once a
live competitor with railroad and J
water transportation. We will fur?
ther have tbc ability for commerce
I with sections of earth which cannot
be reached by railroads or water
routes. The problem of the North
pulp will be readily solved. Looked
at from the humanitarian point of
view the benefit to hnmaujty will be
very great .
It will make the necessaries of life
cheaper by giving new means for
their distribution and will open up
the greal. food centres of earth to
those who cannot gej fbejr products,
now.?Richmond State. |
Prosperity tn the South,
From all parts of the South come
excellent reports of material progress.
The Southern corn crop is greater
than ever before; {lie cotton crop is
large and of line quality. J ii Texas
tiie latter is the largest that the
State has raised, and the prospect of
the market is assured. While cot
I ton is now cheap, it will not do to
overlook the fact that six cents a
pound for cotton nowadays is a very
different thing from what it was a
few years ago. People generally
have not yet learned to take into con?
sideration the fact that the modern
bye-products of cotton are worth
nearly two cents a pound more, so
that the farmer's six cents is really
equivalent to eight cents.
The corn crop is so large that the
/South will this year have a surplus
instead of being compelled to import
corn for her own consumption, fhe
outlook for her manufacturing indus?
tries, and her cotton mills in particu?
lar, is better than ever before in her
history, and in every substantial and
material element of business the gen?
eral condition of the South is more
encouraging and satisfactory.
In respect to Southern railroad in?
terests the reorganization of the
Ricamonu germinal system and the
merging of the thirty or forty rail?
roads composing it into the new
Sothern Railway Company is noth?
ing short of revolutionary. As af?
fecting Southern business affairs o(
all kinds its significance cannot be
overestimated. It means the sub?
stitution iu the pivotal industry and
dependence of the country of order
ju the place of chaos, and of stability
and responsibility in the place of ab?
solute irresponsibility. Never jn the
history of railroads was such hope?
less chaos and inefficiency manifest?
ed as in the administration of the
thousands and thousands of miles of
niijroad directly and indirecVly in?
volved in tho Richmond Terminal
system. Shippers could place no
dependence upon the railroads. They
? ~:' ...? -.- ??? >..."?>'? -'... ?"? .1 '.?
had no guarantee that goods confided j
to them would reach their consignees,
or that goods they had bought wonhl
ever arrive. And above all they had
no redress. There vrns no such thing
as recovery of los?, even when the
courts had done their duty and or?
dered restitution. It was one vast
system of inefficiency, mismanage?
ment, and worse, and its effect upon
all mercantile business was disas
irons.
The new order of things is very
different. The Southern Railway is
the result of the practical obliteration
of between thirty and forty corpora?
tions, the elimination of millions of
fictitious valuations and nnreasona- I
ble burdens, and it sets up in their !
j place a solid, resourceful, and vigor?
ous railroad system founded upon
j modern and scientific economics and
of the first efficiency. This has been
'accomplished by Mr. Samuel Spen?
cer, in conformity with the genera!
plan and purpose of the reorganiza?
tion undertaken by the great bank?
ing house of Drexel, Morgan & Co.
Mr. Spencer, in addition to being
one of the first railroad men in the
country, was specially equipped for
theprobjem in hand by his intimate
knowledge of jSont/jern railroad prop?
erties, and of those of the TerWQ?)
system in particular. Besides, it is
doubtful if anybony is better qualifi?
ed for dealing with the familiar ail
n",,,t nf railroad tofisv. When Mr.
Spencer was elected"IPresMeht of *.he
Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Com?
pany, one of his earliest acts in office
v/as'to take $25,000,000 off the sur?
plus of that great corporation by a
j simple stroke of his pen, li is to this
gift of Mr. Spencer's that we may at?
tribute the fact that the Southern
Railroad Company enters upon the
conduct of its business, even after
j such conditions as have so long pre-;
j vailed, earning its rixed fbfrges and
a very considerable surplus. j
T'aken for all in all, the business
prospects of the Sonxh are, at the
present moment, brighter than those
I of any other part of the country. It
depends upon th* psopta of the South
themselves if these conditions are to
continue. What they need is unln
termitted industry ami a sound res?
pect of law. If they have, the good
sense to abjure populism, and social?
ism, and anarchism, and see to it
jihal the. rights of property are ob?
served in behalf ojf great and small,
rich and poor, they "can be as bios
perous as they please, There is no
appreciable limit to their resources,
and with industry and honesty going
hand in hand, there should be no
limit to their development. Let
' them study the lesson that Texas has
learned a.i Such grievous expense and
painful retardation, fjer Bcagans
and her Hoggs, whom she is no\y:i'$t
last repudiating, have post hpr unfold
millions of dollars, and have pot
back her natural and reasonable de?
velopment by at least as nlUch as

the iniquities of Republican misrule,
and debate upon the truths of De?

Mrs. Smyth PI. Morison is very ill.
Dr. Butler, of Bristol, her old family
physician, is attending her, and if

WASHINGTON LETTER.
( To.-t's t'egular Correspondent.)
Washington, Skpt. 10, 1894.
Editor Post:
Tilings have been quite lively, even ex?
citing, in political circles during the past
we<?k. notwithstanding the absence ot
Congress, the President and a majority of
the members of the Cabinet. The first
flatter came when Senator Jones' letter,
withdrawing from the Republican party
and connecting himself with the Populists,
was made public. Thai was a national
sensation which promises to be far reacbr
lug in its effects Tho Populists claim
that it makes them absolutely certain of
holding the balance of power in both Sen?
ate and House of theFtty-fourth Congress,
and many Republicans and Democrats
admit that the claim is not a wild one but
is based upon what now appears to he
very plausible probabilities The next
excitomont followed when there were ru?
mor? that Senators Teller, of Colorado,
and Dubois, of Idaho, were about to fol?
low the example of Senator Jones. Sena?
tor Dubois, just heforo .darting for home,
disposed of the rumor so far as it related
to him by denying that he intended leav?
ing the Republican party duriug this
! c&mpaign, but intimating that he might
j do so later if the party did not favor sil?
ver more strongly than it docs at present.
Senator Teller has not been in W~ftghhig
ton since several weeks before Congres.?
adjourned, Imt if is n<?t heiieved that he
I has any idea of withdrawing (roni the
RcpabUcft.il party at this time.
Another political event that stirred
things up in Washington wn? the resolu?
tion adopted by the Louisiana sug*r plan?
ter?, ill faror of noting n if h the Republi-|
can party hereafter. This was regarded,
here practically the flop of a stnte from1
the Democratic to the Republican party,
as the sugar planters are rcgiudcd ag the
ruling influence of the state. That the
I administration quickly recognized the
importance of ttc move was shown hy the
attempt of Secretary Carlisle to head it
off hy giving the public, in an interview
with Representative Mayer, of Louisiana,
flic important tact that he and President
Cleveland were unalterably opposed to
I freu sugar at this time, which i.s taken to
mean (hut I ho bill placing sugar i>u me
free list will be vetoed should Sefiulm
Blackburn succeed in his announced in?
tention of get ling it passed by the Senate
?it has already passed the House with
only eleven dissenting votes?at the short
session; also, that he and President
Cleveland favored and would be glad to
use their influence for legislation provid?
ing foi ij^e payment of I lie full bounty on
all sugar made up to the dattj upon which
the new tariff went into operation ami fori
the payment of the difference between
the bounty and tho duty upon this year'*
entire crftli .V' sugar. This last was
probably intended to soften the disap?
pointment caused hy his final decision not
(o pay Inh bounty on the tariff, which has
just been officially announced.
About lire hundred, of (he local (i. A.

Populist only for the purpose of influenc?
