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
