The following from the report of
Surveryor-G.meral Pratt makes
mighty interesting rending:
Nevada could produce and manu
facture every article it consumes with
pevha..s, the exception of tea ami cof
fee, and is capable of supporting ten
times its present population, but its
wonderful mineral resources Lave in
times past commanded attention to
the exclusion of every other resource.
Fortunes have so often been made in
a fow months or years in mining that
public attention has centered 111 that
direction, aud a very small percent
age of the people who came to Nev
ada did so with the intention of mak
ing it a permanent home. People
came here to get rich, and, when for
tune favored them, they retired to
some of the great mouey centers of
the world and carried with them the
wealth, which, if invested in the de
velopment of the State whence it
oarae, woul 1 have made Nevada the
pride of the Union.

telegraph wore constructed with
money dug out of the Nevada mines
by Nevada citizens. One of the larg
est and costliest building in Now
York City, or perhaps in the world,
was erected with funds derived from
Nevada enterprise by 1). O. Mills,
who recently duplicated the structure
in San Francisco. The Palace and
Baldwin hotels, 3rand Opera House,
New California Theater, blocks of
stores and warehouses and scores of
costly reeidenoes in Sun Francisco,
Oakland nnd elsewhere in the United
States and Kurope, have been built
with Nevada money. Port Costa
warehouses and docks, great news
papers, vineyards, orchards, wheat
fields and many other enterprises m
California have been inaugurated
and completed with Nevada money.
If the $600,000,000 of gold and silver
taken out of Novnda mines had been
invested at home, the waters of the
Truckee, Carson, Walker and Hum
boldt rivers would not now be flow
ing to waste.
If Congress would favor Nevada
one-hundredth part as much as it does
New England, there would be no
cause (cr complaint abont its scaot
population. It affords no protection
to unything we produce. It closes
the mints against our silver, and puts
hides, wool and other products of the
State ou the freo list. Wo have no
rivers and harbors to entitle us to
part of tlie million! appropriated from
the treasury for the improvement of
navigable streams, and the Inter*
. state Commerce Act is made applica
ble to the State only when there is a
disagreement between the railroad
and omployes.
If Now England was treated as Ne
vada is by the General Government,
it would not haver ten inhabitants to
the square mile, and Boston would be
abandoned to the owls and bats,
All this is good food for reflection.
It is consoling to know that after
having been "dragged for millions."
and abused and handicapped in every
possible manner for more than twenty
years, poverty and waut are strangers
in Nevada, and that we are still able
to contribute to the support of our
detainers,
It is snid that the ranchers of the
State of Washington are hoping that
a severe winter will rid thern of 100,
000 head of horses, which eat up their
bonoh grass and caunot be sold at nny
price. Horses in that neck of tho
woods aro said to go begging at $1
apiece. Cattle and sheep find pur
ohasers at some price, but nobody j
wants horses.
