THUKapT^ rT7~OCTOBEIt 24, 1878 COLONEL FAIEON THE BITLLIOM TAX. This scribe met Colonel Fair in San Francisco two weeks ago. In acasnal run ning conversation tbe Bullion Tax ques tion came up, In tho coarse of which the Colonel remarked, in his usual bland and insinuating manner, “My son, we do not want the present law interfered with ; the big end of our bonanza has been worked out, and we don’t care (meaning tbe bo nanza firm) about haring the law changed. We have paid the tax, and now that Hkae and some of the rest of our enemies seem to have a bonanza, let them waltz in and pay the tax as wc have done. We don’t want the law touched. On the contrary, it it comes down to that, we will spend money to have the law remain precisely as it is.” How does this compare with the position of the shallow frauds who would stride into powor on the anti-Bonauza dodge. Cnclc Jimmy would like to have the $105, 000 penalties cancelled, but lie, nor the Arm of which he is a member, care a farth ing whether the present law is modified or not. Let not the people lose Bight of the main issue. Tlio rebate of tho penalties is the main and only issue in the campaign. Stumpers would do well to address them selves to the point. No nonsense, gentle men, will bo tolerated. We have had qnite enough brayiug about dead and baried issues. That kind of thing doesn't go at this end of the lino. Oet down to politics if you have anything to say—or quit. False and fraudulent issues will not be accepted for the genuine article by the intelligent masses of the Great East. We have had enough of buncombe in this can vass. -... LET n CNDEKNTAND THE SI B JECT. There is a good deal of demagogery bo ing shouted from the stump and through the preaa about the Bullion Tax question. An effort is being put forth to frighten the people into tho belief that an attempt was made two years ago, and will be repeated again this winter, to repeal the Bullion Tax Statute. This is simply the boldest kind of demagogery, and there is not a man in the State of sufficient intelligence to monnt the rostrum or write for a news, paper who does not know that he lies in his throat when he utters snch sentiments. The proposed bill of two years ago did not aim at a repeal of tbe Bullion Tax law or anything approximating it. The revenue derived from the proceeds of the mines would not hare been affected $40,000 a year by the enactment of the Compromise Bill at the then rate of production, and the loss to tho State would be still less at • the present rate of production. The law was general; not for the bonanzas alone, as is sought to be established by dishonest fishers for votes, and related to every mine ia the State. Both parties had pronounced in their State Conventions against the out «nd ont repeal of the law, hut neither had said a single word against a modification Of the same. Taking the State platforms of the two parties, and a vast majority of the county platforms, as the sense of the whole people of the State on tbe subject, and there was no proof going to Bhow that the people had, in any public or represent ative capacity, taken position sgainst a reasonable and equitable modification of tbe law. And it must be borne in mind that a member of the Legislature is a State o&cer, charged with the responsible duty of legislating for all the people of tbo State, and in duty bound to beed the appeals, pe titions and demands of one section pre cisely es he would another. That is to nay. his sworn duty, as a Legislator, is not restricted to local or county limits, his oath of office requiring him to aot for the whole people. If then, aa we have shown, there were no obliga tions imposed by the people represented in (their State conventions in opposition to .modification, and it transpired, as was the case, that a very large proportion of the taxpayers of one section of the State peti tioned for modification, as was also the case, and there were no protests or demon strations of disapproval from any source, who can truthfully say that the member who voted for the Compromise Bill did so In open defiance of the expressed public will either before or after the election? The proposed modification amounted to uttle then, as we have shown, and would Amount to less now on account of the Bo nanaas having been practically exhausted. The real essence of the compromise con sisted in the rebate of the penalties due from the Bonanza companies on their un paid quarterly tax. How this part of the business stands to-day we will show further on. We have not the exact figures at onr command, but it is our preseut recollec tion that the total amount of the back tax was in round numbers $300,000, of which sum $105,000 was due on account of pen alties, and is still due, as we shall more fully explain as we proceed. The Legisla ture proposed to throw off the penalties to get the principal. The Ways and Means Committees of the two Houses had been told by Judge Lewis, of the law firm of Lewis £ Deaf, (With a Short "and,” as the printers would say when denoting a co partnership,) that the State could not en force its claim in the Supreme Court of the Vsited States inside of three years. If this were to be the esse, (and we bad the word of the people's attorney for it,) the State rate of taxation must be increased from M cents on the hundred dollars to 91.10, and besides the Comptroller must be authorised to negotiate a loan of $200, 900 at a high rate of interest, running a term of years, to meet the immediate wants of the Treasury, We were also expected to appropriate 925,000 to aeud lawyers to Washington to look after the bullion tax oases. This then was one side of the cue. The other me; be iUt ed even more briefly, u follow*: 87 accepting the back tax the necessities of the Treasury would be provided for without borrowing the $200,000 mentioned above; the $25,000 would not be required for lawyers; the State tax rate would not demand raising to $1 10, nor yet main tained at 90 cents, but oould be safely cut down to 40 cents, thus working a saving to merchants, ranchers and all other classes of tax-payers of $200,000 per annum. This is the.ease, and this is the issue on which certain demagogues are trying to rid* into power in the present campaign. Tho subterfuge is as shallow u the men who are striving to gull the people with it. and is at vilely base and dishonest as the crime of obtaining goods under a false pretense. The question as presented was a new one. No people, no party, no conven tion anywhere, had declared whether it were better to go on with the suits, taxing onrselves to the utmost limit the mean while, or settle the vexed question forever by compromise, thus rendering possible a reduction of State taxation of morn than one-half. It was purely a matter of State policy, addressing itself to the individual judgment of members on their oaths to legislate for the best interests of the whole people. It was a question, we are willing to admit, concerning the policy of which gentlemen might honestly differ—though it is apparent that those who bawl in oppo sition to onr position are unwilling to go even this far. There was a perceptible feeling for the popular side. Honest men and dishonest men voted for and against the bill. Republicans and Democrats di vided in the same way. Some of the grand est frauds that ever found their way into a legislative body espoused the cause, so called, of tho people. It was in no sense a party issue, and does not deserve to be treated as such. Storey county owned a large Rhnre of tho back taxes. Virginia City bad just been reduced to a blackened ruin by fire. Her records, public buildings, schools — all were gone. Both county and city were without money to repair damage. The people had lost their all and were in despair. Suspended schools, ruined credit and bankruptcy seemed imminent. A wail came up from these stricken people in their dire distress such as no man, who is a man, could fail to seriously consider. To compel a people thus situated to face three years of litiga tion in the Supremo Court of the United States, in the meantime taxing themselves seven or eight per cent., seemed to us like the refinement of cruelty. Nobody in or out of the Legislature over justified tho bonanzas in resisting the payment of their taxes. That was diabolical. But they had a legal right to go to the courts, they did go, and the Legislature, if it touched it at all, must deal with the question where it found it. An attempt was made to com promise, and failed. So ended the matter and there it should have ended. Tho tax has been paid, and the issue then presented is as dead as an Egyptian mninmy. Not a man who voted for the Compromise Bill would have voted for a repeal of the law. There is not a man in the State to-day, of any respectability, who would favor its re peal by a future Legislature, and none know these things better than the derna agogues who arc cavorting about the State braying in an opposite key. This article has grown to unusual length, but we are not through yet. We promised in tho fore going to explain what had become of those penalties, amounting to $105,000. We shall do it, and in doing so, show that the real Bullion Tax issue has been dodged by all of the Conventions, and is not to-day discussed before the people by the candi dates of either party. Soon after the adjournment of the Legislature, with a view to reliev ing the districts of Storey county and Virgiuia City, the Bonanza peo ple waived their right to delay and allow the case to be taken up out of its order. It was decided in favor of the State, and so decided two years and teu months before** the attorneys for the State or anybody else expected it would be. And here comes in the rub. Immediately on the heels of the decision certain State officials and attorneys engaged and em ployed in the case went to work and (lid precisely what tho Legislature had pro posed to do—namely, compromised with the Bonanza firm by throwing off the pen alties, amounting to $105,000. They stipu lated that the collection of these penalties should bo held in abeyance until April 1B7». Tim was to give the Bonanzas an opportunity to go before tlio incoming Legislature next winter with a proposition to bo relieved of the payment of the same, and they will be there asking that this be done, backed up and supported by said stipulation. The stipulation in question will be signed and indorsed by Lewis & Deal, the • Attorney General, John R. Kittrell. Controller Hobart, and, we have heard it stated and not denied, by Governor Bradley. The question recurs, what aro members of the Legislature elected at the ensuing election to do in the premises? Will they ho called upon to construe an in dorsement of Beal, Kittrell and Bradley by the people as an indorsement of the settle ment aforesaid with the Bonanzas, and will they be required in pursuance of that in dorsement to vote for the forthcoming Bonanza Belief bill. This is the question, and the real and only issue to-day before the people regarding this important matter. There are no instructions on the subject from any quarter. We want to know about this matter. As a member of the Legislature shortly to convene we have a right to know. Why do not thegeutlemcn before the people take position on a sub ject of such overwhelming importance. All we ask is for gentlemen to stand sqaarely np to their record and not at tempt with specious arguments to evade the paramount issue. For onr own part we shall construe the election of Bradley, Beal and Kittrell as an indorsement by tbe people of their settlement of the back tax cases with the Bonanzas, and shall feel in structed to vote in the Legislature in favor of their settlement by which the $105,000 in penalties were thrown off or canceled. This is tho ease in plain lauguage. All we aak is for gentlemen to stand by their record, as ws do. Nobody wants to repeal the bullion tax law. No attempt will be made to do anything of the kind. What we want to know is, shall the Bonanza pen alties be forgiven after they have kicked up so much trouble and involved tbe State in so much trouble? As a member of the in coming Legislature we have a right to be advised on this subject. There are no in structions from aoy Convention. What say the people about it? And what explana tion does certain gentlemen now on the ■tump hare to offer? We await a rational reply. _ HOW. T. J. BELL. Mr. Bell wu a member of tbe last House of Assembly from Nye county. He has been nominated by the Democracy of Nye for re-election. If ability and integrity are the qualifications the people of Nye are looking for, they can find them in great abundanoe in Mr. Bell. He is a gentle man who cannot be swevered from what he believe* to b* right. At tbe beginning of bis Legislative career, two years ago, he was modest and unassuming, but before the close of the session he was the equal of the strongest debaters there, being indeed the recognized leader of the Honsc. He thinks and acts for himself, and when his mind is once made up there is not a power on earth that can budge him. We may have differed with Mr. Bell on important questions of public policy, hut this made no difference, we were bound to respect him for his great worth and unbending devotion to what he conceived to he the right of a given proposition. We have never known a man so true to himself and opinions, as T. J. Bell. Most men will yield trifles on the score of friendship. Not even this could reach Bell on the smallest thing claiming his official attention and ac tion. He was steadfast for the right, as given to soe the right, from the heginnii g to tho end of the session. His course on the Bullion Tax question was in accord with the popular clamor of to day. We do not believe he was right, but we believe he was honest, and if Governor Bradley is to go through on this issue Mr. Bell Hhould go through with him. Having learned the parliamentary ropes he will now make a most valuable member. Ho should be returned by an overwhelming majority. The people of Nye have not a better man for the place. In this connection some reference to Mr. Joseph T. Williams, Mr. Bell’s colleague on the ticket, is also in order. We believe him to be honestly personified. He is an old and respected citizen of Nye county, and has always been true to every trust, public and private. Every person who knows Mr. Williams, iutimately, will trust him implicitly. He is a gentleman of sonnd, practicial views on all matters of public concern, and will make a pains taking and reliable Legislator. The voters of Nye will never regret sending Mr. Wil liams to Carson along with Mr. Bell. -• » • —. Sayh the Virginia Chronicle: “ The Rc* publican managers in Storey county are becoming nervous. Until within the last four or five days they have regarded the election of their Legislative delegations as one of the certainties. The horrible sus picion that they have been mistaken in this belief—that the people of Storey county have no confidence in their candi dates, and will, regardless of post political preferences, vote for the Democratic nomi nees—has gradually been forcing itself upon their minds. They are sorely troubled. ” EASTERN NEWS. NIGHT DISPATCHES. | SPECIAL TO THE EUREKA DAILY SENTINEL. | PURCHASE OE SILVER BULLION. BIDS RECEIVED BY TELEGRAPH. UNSAFE WAY OF TRANSACTING BUSINESS. The Fight for Free Silver Coinage. Washington. October 23. Bids will bo received to-morrow for the purchase • f silver bullion under Mr. Sher man’s recent order. In accordance with the Secretary’s regulations, the bids will be made by telegraph, and the bidders whose offers may be accepted, either for the whole amount or any part thereof, will receive a notification by telegraph. The new regulations require these telegraphic bids to be simply addressed to the Director of the mints at Washington. This seems to be a careless and unsafe manner to transact a business of this kind, for the reason that there is no way presented for distinguishing the bids for bullion from any other business that may be Addressed by telegraph to the Director of the Mints. The bids thus addressed are liable to lie opened at different times through the day, making ic possible to give tardy bidders ine figures already received, and the ad vantage of any favorable change that may take place in the market. Under the Sec retary’s regulations, it is possible, in various ways for the more alert oper ators to become possessed of the figures of competitors, and while the possession of such knowledge would be likely to inure to the advantage of the Government in purchasing, early bidders would be preju diced and placed at an unfair disadvantage. It is probable that when the attention of the Secretary is called to this matter metlious will be adopted to frustrate the possibility of bids being opened until all that are to be considt-ied shall be received. The amount of silver bullion to b(* pur chased to-morrow is 400.000 ounces. Here tofore the regular weekly purchases have been about 750.000 ounces, that amount being about equal to the weekly yield of our Mints. The order limiting the pur chases to 400,000 ounces, weekly, will probably result in reviewing the agitation in favor of free coinage at the next session of Congress. Unless this humiliation is removed, holders of the surplus product of our mines, as well as the owners of demon etized silver in Europe, will very likely urge the advocates of silver in Congress to renew the fight for free silver coinage. An Iinportnut Decision. Washington, October 23. The Commissioner General of the Land Office, in deciding the matter of the Hope Mining Company's application for a patent for the Potosi lodo, announces the follow ing new and important ruling in regard to the width of all lode claims. Referring to Section 2,320, of the Revised Statutes, which provides—No claims shall extend more than 300 feet on each side of the vein at the surface—he says: When a vein out crops at the surface, there can bo no ques tion as to the point from which the latteral measurement must begin; but when the discovery shaft develops the vein at some distance below* the surface, and the loca tion does not determine by any further prospecting that tho nearest actual surface 1 point is elsewhere, and the fact does not otherwise appear, I am of the opinion that the point of the vein so discovered must be assumed to be the middle of the vein, and the latteral measurement be calculated therefrom. The law is mandatory, aud contemplates that but 300 feet shall be taken on either sido of the veiu, and com pliance with tho law necessitates the fixing of a point from which these measurements begin. I think the rule I have indicated is the only one practicable. In this case the width of the claim on one side being more than 300 feet from tho discovery opening, the plat and field notes arc returned to the Surveyor General for correction. All other objections and protests against the company's application ace, however, over ruled. A Herers ft tor in. Mew Yoke, October 23. A severe storm has intercepted telegraph buaines. The storm which broke over this city this morning originated in the Gulf of Mexico. Tiie velocity of tbs wind was 60 miles an hour. The rain fall was severe, but not as heavy here as further South. The area covered by the storm is a narrow belt along the coast. The storm is now farther east, and it is expected to move northeastward to Maine. The indications are that the wind will shift to the northwest this evening, and cool weather will follow. The telegraph wires are down in all directions. The bay is very rough. The damage to shipping is probably very heavy, aa it is blowing di rectly on shore. Yellew Fever Items. Memphis, October 23. From 6 o'clock last night nutil noon to day, the undertakers report 11 interments. The streets are thronged with returning refugees, and business is being gradually resumed.

Mr. Smith M. Tweed said to a Tribune reporter last evening that he sent some dispatches from South Carolina, but there is not a word of truth in the Tribune as it credits to him. Also, that he never saw the canvassing board, or made any ar rangement with them, or tried to bribe them in any way. A Former Opinion Overruled. Washington, October 23. Attorney General Dcvena has overruled a former opinion from the Depart ment of Justice, to the effect that the National hanks, in making up their capi tal subject to duty, may be permitted to d' duct United States bonds at their face value, and now decides that they may de duct the amount invMsted in such bonds, not only their face value, but the premium added. ^ FOREIGN NEWS. | SPECIAL TO THE EUREKA DAILY SENTINEL. | SCHOUVALOFF TO SUCCEED GORTSCHAKOFF.
