DEMOCRATIC TICKET. FOR COXGRESS?9th DISTRICT, JUDGE H. S. K. MORISON, OF SCOTT. Rem emuer theBarbecue on the 26th. We would like for somebody to tell us who the d?1 .Jonas Wilder i.s auyway. Have you ever thought how much better Col. Slcmp would have run than Walker. Hon. Krank S. Blair, republican, of Wytheville, is leported as saying: ?'I regard II. S. K. Morison as one of the purest men and best lawyers in Virginia." Hon. Walte? E. Addison.is mak? ing some telling speeches for Morison. He is fust getting an enviable repu? tation, ns a debator and orator. He will be continuously on the stump from now until the election. 'ins correspondent of the Bristol News at East Stone Gap seems tobe very fair, and truthful, although lie did not mention how badly Browning gol skinned. We'll wager something that old man Smith did not write it up?It was a little too near the truth for the old bird. The Barbecue It has been decided to have a bar? becue here on the 2Gth inst instead of the l^th as previously announced. The reason it was postponed to a later date was for the purpose of having Gov. O'Ferrell as one of the speakers. He speaks at Mendota on 25th and will come from there direct here. The Governor is a candidate for United States Senator, and this fact should draw a large crowd. Daniel, Morison and Wysor, have been invited also, and will probably be present. Let everybody go to work to make it a success. Arrangements are being made to accommodate 10,000 people or more. Committees have been appointed in the various counties, and are at work. Reduced rates have been given us on all railroads. Negro Equality. There is one thing that the negro must keep firmly impressed upon his mind, and that is that he must keep to his own color. The white people of this section and of every other section of the South are determined upon this and will see that it i.s car? ried out to the letter, and it is right and proper that they should. The Post is no negro hater in the vulgar acceptation of the word. It takes but little stock in the argument of those who dislike the negro, because he is black, hut it does believe, ami believes firmly that this is a white man's country, and that the white's must and shall rule it. ' That being our belief we are most heartily in favor of punishing a negro brute every time lie outrages a white girl or has improper relations with her, with or without her consent. It is a disgrace upon our civilization, that such things should happen, but they do and they must he nipped in tlic j bad. It is only one step removed I from the intermarriage of the races, which is prohibited in the South. Quite recently there was a very dis? reputable ocenrance in our town. We refer to the negro Watson. In this case, the family and the girl wore but little if any better titan the ne? gro, and it might be added as an ex? tenuating circumstance that they came from Ohio, and are not as can readily be imagined natives of tin; South. Thank <?od we don't have but lew of that class of people amongst us. But this is no extenu? ating circumstance for the negro Watson, lie should be taught, and eveiy other negro should be taught, that when they digress, and get out of their herd, the vengence of the whites will be on their trail, sooner or later. He must keep this in mind and remember that though they arc here, not by our desire, and were not brought here by iis, while they arc here, they must keep their place, and keep it strictry. If they desire to carry on such amours, as the negro Watson has been guilty of, they had bo?t cross over to the north side of Ji>c line, nmlUke. a?fnge under the j protecting wing of William Loya Garrison, I)r Hale and other distin? guished hypocrites. They will find but little sympathy here. They will be treated kindly just so long as they behave themselves, and no longer When they jump over the traces then they may expect the same fate to overtake them that has overtaken so many of their predecessors in vice. We have no unkind feelings in the world for the negro. We would not do them an injustice knowingly, but wo tell them kindly and in all I earnestness that "birds of a feather must flock together," and that when they get to flocking elsewhere, they arc flocking to their doom. Gen. Walker's Record. Gen'l. Walker was a fair Soldier during the war. lie was not distin? guished either for daring or for cow? ardice, and upon his record as a sol-1 dicr, we would not, if we could, cast the slightest reflection. His record made on the field is dear to every Southerner, and his services there should not be forgotten, whether gteat or small. It is sufficient that he was a soldier. However, we think that the old soldier should remember that during the darkest days of reconstruction this same General Walker wrote a letter to President Andrew Johnson, craving the pardon of the Federal Government and acknowledging that lie erred in espousing the cause of secession. This letter has been pub? lished and has not been denied. Gen? eral Walker's personal organ, the News of Bristol, is as dumb as an oy? ster regarding it. Such being the case, we take it that it is true. Jt has been said that Gen'l, Wal? ker had to take this oath. That is not true at all. We can name thous? ands who never took it, ami who would have died rather than have taken it. General Longstreet took it they say. Yes, and pray what is General Longstreet in the South to* day? An alien, an exile who has tbo contempt of the entire South. Old Jubal Early, that sterling Vir? ginian, that noble self sacrificing man, when General Longstreet of? fered to shake hands with him at the unveiling of the Lee monument, said I don't care to shake hands with a d? traitor, The war is ended and we do not seek to rekindle the flames of sectional hatred, but we wish to show the old soldiers, the men who wore the gray, the noblest, grandest body of men who ever drew sword how confidence can be misplaced and how traitors can act. They have nevcrsaid that their course was wrong They made of their swords plough shares, and battled as manfully against adverse fortune, as they did against the armed invader of our soil. They have never yet, like cravens, bended the knee in cowardly suppli? cation to the arm of might. They have never acknowledged their error in defending the soil that gave them birth, and it is the brightest memory of which Virginians can boast. Con? quered but not humbled, overcome by superior members, it did not, never? theless, make us traitors. When Vir? ginians acknowledged themselves as such, God pity them. We can bid a sad and everlasting farewell to our greatness. No-longer can we boast j that to be a Virginian is greater than a King. It is for this that we condemn General Walker and it is this that reflects upon his record as a soldier. It shows him up in his true colors. So impatient for oflice, so anxious for spoils, he was regardless of the means, by which he elevated himself. His record since tin? war has been in keeping with the Johnson letter. He has confessed himself a Republican for the .sake of oflice, and' he has muddled his statements so confusing ly that it is hard to reconcile them. He has skid the Democratic party had left him. How absurd, as if a party could leave one forlorn .individ? ual. He has said that he had not voted a Democratic ticket for ten years. Then, general in what light are we to consider you when you were a candidate for the Democratic nom? ination for attorny-general nine years ago? If you had not voted tho Dem? ocratic ticket the year before, why were you a candidate? It appears very much like the convention, which nominated Lee, Massy and Ayers, had a traitor in that camp. We are taking General Walker's own state? ments. We do not wish to do him injustice?but justice. When a man aspires to represent the people hi* public record should have the search, light thrown, upon it. We deny that principles have all to do with this canvas. The men should he weighed by the intelligent voter as well as the principles they represent. On the one hand the Democratic nom? inee stands without reproach. His private and his public life is as white as tho driven snow- Not one word have the ingenious Uep^likkn scan dal mongers had to say against him. He has the confidence of all men whose confidence i.s worth a hill of beans. General Walker's private character is all right. He is an hon? orable man in private life, but his public record is not good. He is too changeable, and his present attitude is palpable to Democrats and Republicans alike. Had lie been nominated for attorney-general when Rufus A. Ayers was chosen, General Walker would be a good Democrat today. Not being able to attain dis? tinction in the ranks of the Democrats, General Walker has shown Iiis ap? preciation for the old adage "In the Kingdom of the blind the one-eyed man is King," by joining the Repub? licans. There,where in the South at least the men of brains are very lim? ited, he sought, and has acquired at the outset the leadership. Jt must be a bitter pill for that sterling Re? publican campaigner, Col. Slemp and the Hon. David Railey to march under the command of a recent con? vert to their faith. It must be galling, but they are grinning and hearing it well. They nie kinder us*d to that sort of thing now anyway, and can smile as blandly as the blandest. When Walker deserts them in their hour of need as, judging the fu? ture by the past, he will, we may expect to see them smiling still and giving forth no sound, not even "1 told you so." With such principles as the Re publicans have, and with such a man to represent them, we can't see what hope they have for success. COUNTY POLITICS. W. S. MATHEWS, Chairman. A silk banner will be presented to the working committee, whose pre? cinct .shows the greatest Democratic gain over the election returns of last fall. What precinct will get the banner? Hon. II. G. Peters, has kindly con? sented to speak in this county on the 29th, 30th, and 31st, October and 1st November. Mr. Peters is a forci? ble speaker and logical debater ami is well posted on the issues of the day. His appointments will be dis? tributed as follows: Virginia City, October 29 Coebnrn ? " 30 I p. m. Bondtown " 80 at night. Norton " 31 1 p. m. Dig Stone Gap " 31 at night. In Scott Co. Nov. 1st. ('owe out to hear him. He is said to be one of the foremost orators in the Soutliwest. Prominent Democratic speakers will address the people upon the burning issues of the day at Wise Court House on October 23rd. A grand rally is anticipated, and the glorious meeting will be adjourned to this place on the 26th, which we hope to make a regular jubilee. Democrats should close in ranks all over the country. Touch elbows all along tlie line. Make one united effort for the cause of equality, equity and justice. Remember the watch (word, ''equal rights to all, special privileges to none." Neither falter nor waver, but press forward and meet the enemy, foot and dragoon from their strong hold of protection. What is Browning's illustration of protection to the laborer? $8 per barrel for Hour. What is his idea of a home-market? Hia commissary with bacon at 15cts and the miner not allowed to purchase eleswhere, The manufacturer a Trustee. The Republicans idea of protec? tion to the laborer makes the manu? facturer a trustee to receive the mon? ey without bond or security, or legal duty to pay it over to the beneficiary and of course, he don't do it. Every cent of protection to the laborer goes through the hands of these manufac? turers, and as there- is no legal duty, which compells them to render an ac? count of how they have distributed the trust fund foi the benefit of the laborers. They not only don't ren? tier the account, but don't even dis? tribute. As a general rule men don't pay over money unless there is a le? gal duty.to do so, which could be en? forced by law. So the manufacturer gets the protection and the la? borer* gets the "co-hart-" Reiueiab?r the banner, and try for it If we win Wiw county this fall, it can be safely counted Democratic in the future. Theu let every Dem? ocrat go to work. Ooinl 'Sewn. Democrats are ht urork all over this country. Their eyes are open and upon the enemy. They are clos? ing up the ranks. They are getting into time?their position is invulner? able, and they propose to maintain it. Our worknare started right. Don't j I let anything daunt or discourage I you. Keep the good work going on. Look well to your present, and see that your neighbor comes out and votes right'. Don't lay in your work. Go into win and don't stop until you do. Do your duty, if nobody else does. We are the party whose cause is libeity of commerce. Let us fight this battle, as we have fought all other battles of liberty, successfully. As Norton present was formed since the last Congressional election, the comparison for the banner will be made with the legislature election of last fall. Let each present com? mittee enter the race for the banner. Browning Gets a Skinning, Col. "Jecms" Browning of Poca hontas, who has been stumping this end of the state in the interest of General Walker, got one of the soundest political drubbings at East Stone Gap last Friday night it has ever been our pleasure to witness. Mr. Browning is a coal operator and tried to convince the people that pro? tecting him in his particular calling was ncccessary for the prosperity oi the people at large. Mr. Browning spoke at this place in the afternoon to a small crowd, and in the after? noon he thought himself able to take on P*. A. Aycrs and Joe May nor. Well he got enough oi'it before ho ! got through. Joe Maynor lead oil* in a forty minute speech and made i * . j some strong arguments lot Democra-1 i cy~ Browning replied in an hour, and then Gen'l. Avers replied to him in an hour. Gen'l. Avers made one of the best speeches he ever made, ft was too the point, and free from any person? alities. He discussed the issues in a masterful manner, and made a great impression?even Browning's friend.! admitted that he was not in it. One Republican was heard to remark that Browning was a good joker, but very poor on argument. Jt wan a regular Democratic gala night. A few more such discussions and Walker will be snowed under to the tune of 10,000 majority for Morison. One of the Cause* of Hard-Times. (>f course, every fair-minded intel ligent man knows that all of the hard-times and financial panics dur? ing the last few years have been caused by Republican laws, but there j are a few that blame the Democrats because they don't know any better, j and we Democrats should explain this matter fully to the people, or we j will get the blame for it. Tin's re? minds me of a iriend I had when I was a boy. His name was Joshua, he was a big wooly headed, good na tured fellow and stuttered like John Fanner. He had a brother named Hilly,who was a mischierious, pranky little rascal, always doing some kind of mischief, and when his father got after him he would lay it on Joshua, and it took .Josh so long to explain that his pap, who was pressed for time, would whip Josh before he could deny it. One day in Sunday school the teacher asked Hilly who commanded the sun to stand still. He answered, Joshua. Joshua was not listening to the question and when he heard the answer, be said, I d-i-d-n-'t d-o n-o s-u-c-h t-h-i-n-g-s, b-o-u-n-d y-o-u i-a-y n-v-c-r-y-1 t-h-i-n-g o-n J-o-s-h-u-a. So these Republicans lay every? thing on us Democrats, and we must explain. Every body knows that when Cleveland went out of office in 1889, the country was in a more prosperous condition timn it has ever been since1 the war. There was about two hundred million dollars }'u the treas-! urv. After the Republicans got in! power they spent this money, They | say they spent most of it in buying j in government bonds at a premium,! not due, (this premium was our 28 percent.) By this policy for wrong| $100,000,00 of bonds bought, they! withdrew $190,000,00 from our cir? culating medium, and made the coun try $90,000,00 poorer for every 100, 000,00 withdrawn, fur the $90,000,00 that was issued in National bank notes on each $100,000,00 was con? cluded and the $100,000,00 was held by bankers in their vaults to loan again to the government, for they wou!4 rather loan to the government at 3$ than to individuals at live per cent. By this method millions were taken out of circulation. The Republicans also blame the Democrats for borrowing monev to way the deficiencies caused by the Re? public*^, It is an actual fact that before Harrison W? $nt of office he had plates engraved for ^owti? .ami was arranging to borrow some of this same money back that his adminis? tration had paid the hankers to take for govarnment bonds that were not due. Joshua is not to blairVe this time?thrash Billy and vote for Mor-1 won; ^11 K DEMOCRARTIC SPEAKING. HON. R?F?.S A.
