The POST has the largest circula? tion of any paper in Southwest Vir? ginia, and it is steadily increasing. An inspection of its subscription list is invited by those contemplating ad? vertising. Rnfis Avers has cause for action against the Washington Post. It says that he "originated the pithy phrase, Honor won't buy a breakfast!"? Rich mond Dispatch. To Eon. F. S. Blair belongs the honor (?) of originating this phrase. Read the letter of "Alpha" in this week's Post. uA1pha"is well known in Big Stone Gap, but his name will remain with tht Post, as he dets not care to have it divulged. He will write a series of letters, commencing with this issue, which will be read with much interest by the people of ?Southwest Virginia. Prom present indications it does not seem probable that any of the Republican contestants for seats in the 54th Congress from Vir ginia will be succssful. They can always chirp fraud, fraud, but the strange part of it is, they never prove it. It's a kind of fakir cry anyway and is getting rather chestnuty. The Tennessee Steal. We regret for the honor of our sister State, Tennessee, that its pres ent Legislature is borrowing the tac? tics of the Republican party. And it is a most remarkable case this Tennessee muddle. Nearly every Democratic newspaper in the land condemns thefraction in not seating Evans at once, ond then, if necessa? ry, contest his election afterwards, lint it seems that right here came in a very important considoratian, that of patronage. A few petty otfioes, such as coal oil inspectors were to be filled by the Governor. In other words Tennessee has among the members of its Irghest body of law makers,arrant law breakers, to whom honor is an unknown word and who violate their oaths and their duty to their constituents in the most flag? rant and disgraceful manne?-. Such outrages upon the people recoil upon the perpetuators fen fold and exalt the insignificant party who is wrong? ed, H. Clay Evans. However, we are not altogether surprised at any? thing which happens in Tennessee. The Seyd Superstition. Courier Journal.) The Populists arc an nffshot of the Republicans, and they have adopted "Republican tactics, which, briefly ?stated, consist in tilling the air with .misinformation,falsehoods,half-t ruths iinyths and superstition of every grade uind kind so as to confuse the public mi ltd, to obscure the facts, hide the real issue, ami, if possible, detray the ignorant into the adoption of a pot-i icy as ruinous to themselves as to the' people in general. Unfortunately,! Democrats who bid for Populist sup? port are often led, either through want of accurate information or lack of honesty'to repeat these statements. If a Populist could meet a man whom lie knew to be infallible, and spend an hour with him he would be astonished to find that every assertion itp?u which he ha<r relied as the basis ul his political faith Mas a bald, bold] falsehood. Any '.veil-informed man, though not infallible, could tell him the K?me thing, but, of course, the f'opa?Kt would not believe it. aSveii if some one rose from the dead to tell him the truth, the Populist wyuldi ireat Vim a* an emissary of Wall St. The Courier Journal does not feel called upon to tfcfcml ihe ;et 1873 ?dropping the standard silver UoDar frouv the coinage, though it thinks, that it is always well 50 tell the truth. It was done at a time when Republi <eans had exclusive control of all de? partments of the Government. The bill had Veen under consideration for nearly three years. Xobody cared much about it then, for neither gold nor silver was in circulation at the time, but only greenback promises to pay, which promises had been dis? honored for ten years Some years later, when silver had greatly depre? ciated, the question became one of interest, and the men who had failed j to resist the bill when under consid? eration hastened to say that they never knew it was befote Congress at all. This was true of some of them, hut as others are shown by the record tu have participated in the debate "iboir denials must bo attributed to a lapse of memory or something worse. When the bill dropping the silver dollar was first introduced, abont April 1870, copies of it were sent to financial experts in different parts of the world. In 1871 Mr. Seyd. a London financial writer, published a book in favor ot bimetalism. Mr. Hooper'a member of Congress, hav? ing read this book, wrote Mr. Seyd to get his views upon the bill then pending. Mr. Soyd responded, under date of February 17' 1872, and his letter has been published. Mr. Seyd not only objected to the clauses of the T)ill dropping the silver dollar, but also criticised the acts of 1834, 1837 and 1853, because they involved a surrender of the principal of bimetal? lism. It thus conclusively appears that Mr. Seyd was against the act of 1878, and not in favor of it. In 1876 a joint resolution was passed cieating a Monetary Commis? sion to inquire into the relative value of gold and silver, and in March,1877, it made a report, or rather several repo.ts. The majority report, signed by John P. Jones, Lewes V. Bogy, George Willard, R. P. Bland and William S. Groesbeck, is now before us. In this majority report Ernest Seyd is three times quoted as a bime? tal list, with evident approval. The notion that he had come here to rid in demonetizing silver was evidently quite unknown to such distinguished silver men as Bland and Jones. How this story became current we can not of our own knowledge, but the history given by Senator Sher? man in his speech in favor of the re? peal of the purchasing clause i? to the following effect: That a certain avowed anarchist relates that once when dining with Ernest Seyd he spoke of corruption prevalent in the Brittish Parliament. Thereupon, says the anarchist, Seyd remarked that the corruption of Parliament was nothing to that of the American Congress. Seyd then said to the an? archist that he would tell him a se? cret if he would promise never to re? veal it while he (Seyd) Jlived. The anarchist promised, and Seyd then told him he had raised 100,000 pounds sterling in the winter of 1872 to bribe Congress to demonetize, silver, and then he ended the narration with a wink, thereby conveying to the mind of the anarchist the impression that he had succeeded. The anarchist, with a fidelity not surprising under the circumstances, waited until after Seyd's death before putting this fairy tale into circulation. This is Senator Sherman's explan? ation, which we give for whatever it may be considered worth. It is cer? tain, however, that Seyd was a warm friend of silver, and was so esteemed and quoted by the silver leaders as late as 1877. The story of his com? ing to the United States to bribe Congress has not the faintest support save in the invention of habitual liars rnd the credulity of the people avIio accept without^cxainination, and re? peat without suspicion, whatever they ardently desire to believe. Winter Helps. (Uarnert) Itazarj People who live in lonely country neighborhoods, especially young peop? le, are apt to look at the approach of winter with a sort of dread, and -to experience a disagreeable if mild de? pression at the thought of the long and dreary season stretching into the cast winds of May, and destitute of the pleasures that made the summer flee so fast. Friends have gone, gar? dens are deserted, windows are nailsd up, and vines are laid down in straw, the snow adding a ghostliness to va? cancy and solitude Even the sum mer boarders, who used to add a liveliness to lite with their gay dres? ses and voices and equipages, driving about the lanes, sketching on the rocks, strolling here and there as they gathered their weeds and leaves have vanished into thin air; and they whose homes or whose duties still lie in the deserted region have to fall back upon themselves for amusement and occupation. In the summer there are drives and walks and climbs and sails in gay I company; but now obe will walk alone, or with a solitary companion, over I snow or in beaten ways, or ono will drive in a sleigh, very possibly liking it, wrapt in rugs and with hot soap stones; very possibly hating it, ami starving with cold all the time. And then there are long interminable even? ings without the new books that somehow circulate from one to anoth? er in the snnjmer time, evenings in which one is moved tojerivy the hiber j r.atjng bear, that can sleep through I the long dreariness and come out again only when woods are green, j In such cases ono of the first things to do is to organize and arrange a neighborhood book or review clab, in winch each family, paying a small sum, not more than three dollars, will have the readiug of the maga? zines and weeklies and the occasional new books that can thus be taken passed about. The walk where no horse is kept, of a half-mile, more or less, from house to house, which will be required for the transfer of the books and periodicals, makes out-door exercise, and even visiting, a necess? ity, and every one meanwhile is kept sufficiently au coumnt in the affairs of literature, and much time is be? guiled and made profitable as well as pleasant, and the new word arriving from tho great world of cities and (heir people, tho story of the great j writer, tho song of the great singer; is Soon lookedJi>rwaid to ami received like the visit of personal friends. But next to the book club, and al? most as important, sometime even more important, is a neighborhood club, which shall meet on one evening ot. every week, for the express pur? pose either of reading or singing or dancing, 01 the playing of games or the studying of plays, with some very simple refreshment, whose quality and quantity shall be prescribed, so that no member shall be hnmilated by having less than another has provided and no one shall be embarressed by being obliged to offer more than is convenient. If in this neighborhood club one of the forms of entertainment is the reading and discussion of brief articles written by the members, or the readiong of bright dialogues or the like, the preparation of the arti? cles will fill many an otherwise lag? ging hour. Even with these helps alone it will be surprising to find how quickly winder pasees, and with what improvement and growth one meets the spring. LETTER FROM ALPHA. He Discusses Politics?In Fav?r of Walter Addison for State Senator and John Daniel for U,. S. Senator. I have just returned from Norton and various points in this county, and in Scott. I have talked with leading poli? ticians in both counties, and with the people generally wherever I have chanced to be, and find that in the two counties there is a general consensus of opinion that Hon. Walter E. Addison is the man for the Democrats to nominate for State Senator from this District. Mr. Addison is well and favorably known in Scott. He made a speech there at a big raily held by the Democrats two or three years ago. The peoplo were expecting Daniel and Fitzbugh Lee, who had been extensively advertised, and, of course, were somewhat disappointed, when they learned that Geu'l Avers and Mr. Addison were the only speakers to be present, but their disappointment was soon dissipated after the two gentlemen had concluded their speeches. They were the best speeches I have ever heard. Mr. Addison is a rcas oner and is full of resource*, Hegnes to the very bottom of any question he looks into He has many new reforms that he will advocate should he be elected. What Southwest Virginia wants is to send men of brains to the Legislature. Men who go through the Valley? mid up the hill tops electioneering are very good in their place, they are a kind and a good body of citizenship, but unfortunately when they are sent to the Legislature, where they come in contact with brain?, they take a back seat from the beginning and are heard of no more. We want in the next Legislature of theStatc a body of intelligent men, and we waul our member to have as much or more intelligence than the others, and in Mr. Addison we have the man. He has the capacity to lead men but not to follow, and if he is elected no man in that body will exert a more powerful influence than he Keep him licfore the people, Mr. Editor, and con? tinue to show his fitness, and he will be nominated and elected. I was very much amused at a paper In Lee county trying to nuke light of Mr. Addison's condidacy. It reminds me of a monkey making faces at a giant. No doubt Lee county has plenty of able men, in I'acI it is well known that she has, but what has that to do with Mr. Addison'* ability or fitness. The Senatorial fight promises to be very exciting and before any one is nominated to make the race, it should be distinctly kniowii beforehand who he intends to vote for for U. S. Senator, The present can? didates are Hon. John Daniel, Gen*] F'tz Itugh Lee and Hon.Chas. T. O'Ferrall; of these three the choice should be, and doubtless will be, either Daniel or Lee O'Ferrall )i?S been J/nrcrcd above his des? serts. He is the personification of medi? ocrity, and there is a sameness about him that is horribly trying to the nerve? of a sensible man. Bombastic lo an extreme degree, vain as a peacock, though com? monplace as a young frizzly rooster, he sets himself up as tut idol to lie worship? ped. John Daniel is the man the people want. He is the man above all others deserving of Democratic reward. When defeat was a foregone conclusion, this man came at Iiis party's call and made the race for Governor against Wm. E. Cameron and was defeated as he anticipated. But from that time on his rise was as brilliant as a meteor, his fame as an orator spread over the State and his political future was assured. An able jurist and author with? out a peer in this country as an orntnr, a faithful public servant, he is the man the people of this state want to sec re? turned to the U. S. Senate. I have aught to say against the gallant Fitxhugh Lee, who was hocus pocused out of the Sena torship when Tom Martin captured the prize, fte would make us a good Senator, but let's don't ifayc auv more of Chas. T. O'Ferrall. ? AKV V The Post is prepared to do first class job printing of every kind. When you want some nice work done give us a trial. To W- D. Powell, Z A,TrnidiMon.EM. JIurdin, P. II.
