TEAR & MAIL TO: THE HINTON NEWS P. O. BOX 1000 HINTON, WV 25951 Letter to the Editor Religious Ideology and Politics Dear Editor, The beginning of each election cycle inevitably brings up the contentious subject of religion, but this is nothing new. Religion was the driving force in every aspect of life in the American colonies. Church authority was enforced by civil law, this being especially true in the New England colonies. God had predestined all who were to be saved; however, their leaders saw America as the New Israel and used civil law to reign up all the people to proper morality that was fitting of the national covenant with God. What is now considered Conservative Evangelicalism was considered "liberal" and illegal in those days. In 1637, Mrs. Anne Hutchinson began to teach the "1 ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States."

She also believed that there was too much emphasis on the Mosaic Law. Mrs. Hutchinson was tried before the General Court and sentenced to banishment from Massachusetts. A law was passed in 1644 decreeing the penalty of banishment for all who should hold to Baptist doctrines. Baptists believed that church membership should be reserved for Christians only and that baptism should only be administered to those who were already converted. The Baptists were also persecuted in Virginia right up to the American Revolution, being fined and sometimes publicly whipped because they refused to have their children baptized. In 1658, the commissioners of the New England Confederation recommended that all the members of the Confederation expel the Quakers and inflict the death penalty on those who returned. In New Haven, those who returned after being expelled would on the third time have their tongues bored through with a hot iron. The full recommendation of the commissioners was accepted in Massachusetts, and the law provided the death penalty for Quakers who returned after banishment. The law was no intended just to frighten away the "un.demrable radicals," because four Quakers Were executed, one of them a woman. Being a "Christian" (member of the state sanctioned church) was required to hold public office in the American colonies. But the Framers of our Constitution knew that this disqualified many very capable individuals from holding public office. The last paragraph of Article VI of the U. S. Constitution contains the words: " religious test shall Zhe /00znz00t00 v 00tace 209 2nd Avenue Hinton, WV 2595!

Our daughter and grandson spen the Christmas holidays with us and on the Thurs. night before packing the car to leave for home in South Carolina on Friday morning, the car wouldn't start. She was leaving before the New Year's holiday to avoid any persons drinking and driving, plus needing to keep some dr. appointments. Her dad's diagnosis of a broken fuel pump was later verified after the tow truck came promptly to take the car to Gore's. This was Friday a.m. and Gore's would be closed Sat., Sunday and Monday for the holiday. After learning she needed to get home and prepare for dr. appointments and her job of 1st grade teacher and hoped to miss the dangerous driving weekend, the employees dropped everything and replaced the fuel pump and had her on her way in record time!!

Sincerely, Virginia Fitzwater Hinton NOTICE ome signal was red against the train while No. I was at the station. - The time was 1:35 a. m., and the date was Sunday morning June 22, 1958. Fred M. Gwinn, engineer on passenger train No. 1 with eleven cars, was waiting for the bell signal from the conductor indicating all was clear to leave the station when suddenly a terrific jolt almost knocked him to the floor of his engine cab. The air gauge dropped to zero pounds pressure as the air in the reservoir of the cars escaped with one sudden "swish" indicating a break in the train line. Something serious had occurred to the passenger train. Manifest train No. 91 was powered by a four uhit diesel locomotive pulling 143 cars. The crew consisted of Engineer Howard W. Honaker, Fireman Dewey A. Ransom, and Brakeman Londie L. Cales on the engine and Conductor A. C. Martin and Brakeman C. Richmond in the caboose on the rear of the train. The engine crew of No. 91 saw the passenger train standing at the station just ahead and Mr. Honaker applied the brakes. The speed did not reduce and the brakes were then applied in emergency. The manifest train continued toward the rear of No. 1 when Engineer Honaker called out a warning, "We're going to hit." Londie Cales immediately warned Fireman Ransom who jumped to the ground followed by Mr. Cales. No. 91 rammed into the rear car of No. 1, a C. & O. business car, splitting it open for some 15 feet. The car was occupied by C. & O. Vice President of Operations R. N. Begien arid' ;l)s cook :vh'o were' al.ep ani:l' ,. ~, boh .mi-aculousy escaped.injury,. Eiht"ar'btth passenge'r'trah ad' three box cars of the manifest train some distance back from the engine were knocked from the rails, however, all remained upright. Nearly 500 feet of track was damaged. Engineer Howard Honaker was trapped inside of the cab of his locomotive for about one hour and thirty minutes before he could be freed by workmen using welding torches to remove torn metal and to cut the seat from under him. Damages amounted to thousands of dollars to the C. & O. Railway and personal injury to eleven people. Preliminary first air to the unjuried was administered by Dr. J. B. Thompson of Oak Hill who was at the station to see his daughter off when the wreck occurred. Ambulances from Oak Hill and Beckley responded to the distress call and transported the injuried to Oak Hill Hospital. The more seriously injured was Howard W. Honaker, age 65, of Hinton with crushing injuries to his legs. Eventually the left leg had to be amputated; Londie L. Cales of Hinton, crushed knees and abrasions. He was unable to return to work for several months tbllowing his injuries; Also injured and taken to Oak Hill Hospital for treatment were the following: Dewey A.

Dozens of sleeping passengers were knocked from their beds and day coach seats suffering minor bruises and abrasions. The "George Washington" was carrying 82 coach and 56 pullman passengers. All except those detained at the hospital continued their journey on a relief train sen to Thurmond from Huntington. Nearly all of the 200 residents of Thurmond had awakened and converged on the wreck scene. Housewives, realizing there was no facilities to feed the delayed passengers or the men working to clear up the wreck brought their peculators to the station for fresh coffee. A wrecked train mess hall was hastly cleaned and the ladies of Thurmond served breakfast to more than 100 people with food brought in by the Railway Company. Nowhere m the country, when it was a thriving town, could you find more compassio for the unfortunate than in the little own of Thurmond, W. VA. I am very happy to be able to return there to the Thurmond Reunion October 8, 1989 and renew acquaintance with the good people.
