Mr. Irvine on Temperance,
since this question came up
In the Ninth District, twenty
years ago, 1 have not foiled to
register my sentiment for the
issues favored by the temper
unco people. I supported this
cause in the legislative contest
Which elected met) WllO gave to
the poople of the Siate the
enabling act. I then supported
the men of Scott, Lee ami W ise
who voted for that measure in
Riqlunotid,
Prohibition is a moral issue.
I have not hesitated to express
myself whenever the issue has
been presented. I stated my
position clearly in u letter pub?
lished in .1 uly.
I have no hard word or
thought for any man who op?
posed my view oil this question,
Kvei N man has the right of a
citizen in determining hisstami
upon the issues before the peo?
ple. 1 have no quarrel with
those who itid not use this issue
as I did. Let us have liberty of
views ami temperance in ac?
tion ami thought.
If 1 go to Washington, I shall
act consistently, and if oppor
utility comes I shall vote for
nationwide prohibition. This
is my lift-long conviction on
this question. I shall favor
the submission of this issue to
the voters of the nation as a
whole, if such should be deem?
ed the most expedient way to
settle the question.
1 believe the Democrats of
tin- Ninth District, regardless
of whether they voted wet or
dry in the recent election-, will
come together upon the great
issues of the N o vein her election,
close up the ranks, and get be

BRISTOL MOTOR PARTY
TOURS COAL FIELDS.
Carl A. Jones First Local Trav?
eler to Drive Through
Coal Fields.
Mr. ami Mrs. Ctrl A. Jones,
Hiram O, Sanders mitt Hal
Harkrader, constituting a mo?
tor party, returned Monday
night from a trip thtoogh the
coal Held scotion of Southwest
Virginia, including Kussel),
Leo and Wise counties. This is
tin." first Bristol motor party to
take the trip from tins city to
that section, where approxi?
mately (2,600,000 lias been spent
by three counties, within the
past four or live years, in the
construction of modern high?
ways.
"The progress that has been
made by Russell, Wise ami
l.ee Counties in the building of
irood roads is remarkable,'* said
Mr. .I ones "Wise county has
spent $1,100,000 constructing a
net work of macadamised roads.
This is remarkable for an en?
tirely mountainous county. It
is a pity that this section has
not already an outlet to Bristol.
Now the only way it is possible
to got from Bristol to that sec
lion in a motorcar is by way of
Abitlgdoii and over through
Russell, I'he road from Abing
ilon across to Kussel I, including
the Little Moccasin section, is
frightfully rough. Once in
that section though the tourist
is juickly repaid for his incon?
venience in getting there, by
the wealth of | hysical beauty
ami charm of the country 1
toured last fall through the Al
leghanies in (he Pittsburgh sec
lion hut the scenery there \t
not to be compared to the south
west Virginia coal Holds. When
Ibis section is given a road to
Bristol. I believe that its scenic
grandeur will attract tourists
from all over the country. A
r?ad to that section will mean
almost as much to Bristol as a
tu w railroad would be worlh to
the city. The value of a mac
ndnmi/.ed road to this city can
hardly be overestimated. The
people of these three counties
have done wonders in building
toads, especially in view of the
tremendous expenses of build?
ing them, The problems work?
ed out by their engineers in
building illOBO roads certainly
furnished engineering nuts to
crack

''Perhaps?who knows,*' said
the speaker, '?when President
Wilson has Hulshed his course
as chief magistrate of this
mighty republic and when his?
torians come to assign him his
place in history they will pass
over the great domestic meas?
ures of his administrations such
as tariff revision, currency leg?
islation, etc., and declare that
his efforts to keep the United
States out of war i.ttlituto Ins
clearest title to the gratitude ol
his country."
Mr. Chirk Haid Americans
had both a national ami s. If
roason for wanting peace.
'?President Wilson," the
speaker declared, "expressed
with great felicity the senti
meets of all true Americans
when he tendered Ins kindly
Oflices to the beligerent powers.
(fortunate in his coign of van?
tage, happy in the confidence
of a powerful people, let us
hope that he will succeed in
his philanthropic endeavor and
that upon him will rest the
blessing vouchsafed to the
peacemakers in the sermon on
