TUESDAY.. JULY 19. 1887. SEND THEM TO SCHOOL. Some action should be taken to com pel the Indians that frequent Nevada towns to send their children to school. The influences of town life are degrad ing to the Indians, and the little ones, seeing the example set before them day by day, cannot do otherwise than follow along the well beaten path to ruin, and while doing so, from want of better teaching, consider they are doing noth ing wroDg. We send missionaries to foreign lauds to instruct the deluded oreatures there to be found, in the art of civilization, aud allow those on our own soil to ramble at will through our towns and participate in all the debauchery at tending such a life. This is entirely wrong and means should be immediately adopted to wipe out the evil. The In dian, in his uncultured state, makes no preparation for the future, does not real ize that his children should be provided for and a knowledge of this fact is suf ticient to convince those in authority that determined measures should be en forced to drive the children from the town to the school-room. It is a shame that they should be permitted to drift along in this manner without an effort being made to save them. These people, though Indians, are none the less human, are susceptible of cultivation and will make good citizens if educated. Each year the lines are drawn tighter around him and his now limited chances are be coming more precarious. It is a stigma on his more intelligent brother that he should be allowed to thus lose himself. Experience lias taught us that the In dian, under discipline, can be taught to forget his nomadic ways, and even though he may not supercede the white man in intellectuality, he will at least be able to cope his own way with the pro gression that surrounds him. The time is coming when Carson will have an In dian training school, and admitting this fact, it is high time that the Indiau child that is lounging around our towns should be taken care of and placed where he will be beyond the de grading influences that surround him and qualified to enter the industrial school established for his benefit. In Reno many of the Indians make their i home, and the little children that follow them only see that which is demoraliz ing and detrimental to their future. The Government is trying to do that which will benefit the Indian, and if an appropriation were made by the next Congress to gather in the little boys and girls that are roaming our towns and send them to the school-room, it would not only be beneficial to the Indian but would also rid our towns of what is nothing short of a nuisance. If our rep resentatives would only take this matter under consideration and with their knowledge of this evil exercise their efforts to stop it, the time would not be distant when Indians would not be prowling our towns, but would follow their children to the reservation and reap the benefits of the good teaching there met with. —Reno Journal. PAYINU IN SILVER NOTES. General Manager Hanchett of the Manhattan mines at Austin, says the Silver State, ia practically illustrating his faith in silver, and assisting in hav ing it represented in the money circula tion of the country, by paying the monthly expenses of the company in silver notes to the extent to which he is able to procure them for that purpose. This is au excellent idea, and if adopted by all the mining companies of tho silver producing States every stand ard dollar in the United States Treasury would soon be represented in the circu lation by a silver note, and the cry of the gold bugs, that it is nonseusical to coin two millions of silver dollars every month to be uselessly stored in the Treasury vaults, would be silenced. At present silver notes, which are bet ter than greenbacks because they repre sent coin, are oagerly sought in the East, and the supply is not equal to the de mand. It is to be hoped that mining companies will follow the example of the Manhattan, and increase the demand un til every dollar in the Treasury is repre sented by a silver note, and the Treasury Department will be compelled to coin 4,000,000 standard dollars monthly, the maximum authorized by the Act of 1878. John Sherman’s boom don’t seem to be making much headway in Ohio, and it need not surprise any one if Ohio sends a full Blaine delegation to the next Na tional Republican Convention. The Allen County Republican Convention re fused, by a vote of 89 to 26, to send delegates to the Statu Convention to vote as a unit for Sherman for President. Mr. Blaine will be the nomiuee of the Republican party in 188S if he wants the nomination. The Object of Her Vtalt. That dusky old dame, the whilom Queen of Hawaii, is en route to Ban Fran oiso.

The MssBMUr Company Paying Their Employes In . thas Cur rency. Among the numerous innovations in the line of progress, made by the new management of the Manhattan Com pany, that of paying their employes in silves notes, in our opinion, is not the least in importance. General Manager Haneliett, so far as we know, is the first to grasp the situation and inaugurate the practice, with the intention of continuing it. Without here offering explanations on the subject we do not hesitate to assert that the time is coming when the currency of the W est as well as the East, will be notes, based on gold or silver coin deposited in the U. S. Treasury, and we of the silver produc ing States should show our faith in our product, and practice what we preach, by adopting the silver note. The U. S. banks have been working for years to abolish greenbacks, on the specious plea that their adoption was a “ war measure,” and the war having ceased, there is no longer any reason for their existence. Granted. By a parity of reasoning, the creation of the banks, being emphatically a “war measure” for the purpose of circulat ing the national currency—the war having ceased there is no longer any reason for their existence, and they should be abolished; and they will be abolished, as issuers of notes, when we have lived through this adminis tration of bankers and brokers that at present run the Government to suit their interests. These same bankers ana Diokers send up a daily wail, in almost every newspaper in the East, that gold and silver are accumulating in the Treas ury to an alarming extent. We, the people, can stand it. Let them ac cumulate. That is the place for them, where they are safe and lose nothing by abrasion, shipwreck, forgotten hoards, or any of the thousand acci dents incident to their circulation as coin. What we want is the notes, based on this accumulated coin, and then any losses that may occur will accrue to the Government instead of the banks. Let the Government coin and store all the gold and silver that comes to it, and issue notes based on the coin in the Treasury, irrespective of the metal of which it is made. Then we will have no use for national banks, and will have a U. S. note that will pass at par, from Greenland to Cape Horn; from John O’Groat’s to the Golden Horn, and e’en to “far Cathay.” All of this we can promote, in no small degree, by adopting notes, and it would be eminently appropriate that we show our preference for notes based on silver, so long as the distinction be tween gold and silver notes exists. We said1 that the Manhattan Com pany was paving in silver notes. This is not strictiy true, as, thus far, they have been unable to procure them in sufficient quantity. But they propose to do it if they have to send a “ shot gun ” messenger to the Treasury at Washington to procure them. They have been unable to get them except in small quantities in San Francisco, either from the banks or the U. S. Deputy Treasurer. The later in formed a special messenger sent to him by Mr. Hanchett that he did not have men, and had no instructions from Washington in regard to them Mr. Hanchett then sent to Chicago, thinking that so small a sum as $24, 000 needed for the June pay roll would be a mere bagatelle in that metropolis of the west, but about $4,000 out of $24,000 was all that could be had in silver notes. It is necessary to say that the United States bank notes were offered to any amount. This is not consistant with the repeated as sertions of the Administration that silver will not circulate in any form, or the wail of the banks, that as fast as they are put in circulation they return to them. It is the same old story. The banks are still by every artifice in their power trying to render silver in any form, unpopular, to increase the demand for bank notes, and we, un iritingly, perhaps, in most cases are assisting them by our adherence to gold coin as our only currency. Of course we use silver for change, but in that way we can use a small quantity of it. The adoption of silver notes to pay all their liabilities, by the mining organizations of the silver producing States would add, probably $2,000,000 per month to their circulation, and make them popular, not only in the silver States, but in all places from which these States draw their sup plies. There is a prejudice in the west, we admit, against paper money, as their is in the east against coin, but this would soon disappear. The people of the east dislike gold and silver coin because they think it inconvenient, and are afraid of counterfeits. The people of the west object to paper money, for exactly the same reasons. It is till a matter of education and habit. We appeal to the common sense of the mining companies, and all other business men of the silver States, to think, whether it would not be the very acme of wisdom to follow the lead of the Manhattan Co., and pay in the money which is the only recog nized currency of seven-eights of the people of the world, and necessary to the other eighth—the first money known to mankind and never re pudiated—the money of the people, and the main source of our prosjierity, which though temporarily depressed by the machinations of the shylocks of the world, will inevitably reassert itself.—Reveille.

St. Thomas, Ost., July 16.—A terri ble accident occured at the crossing of the Grand Trunk and Michigan Central in this city at 7 o’clock. An excursion train on the Grand Trunk from Port Stanley ran into a freight train on the Michigan Cental made up of a number of cars loaded with oil. The engine crashed into one of these cars when the oil instantly took fire and burned w ith great fierceness communicating to the cars on both trains and extending to the Gritfin warehouse and sheds adjoining the track on the west and to John Campbell's dwelling on the east, all of which were burnt to the ground with their contents. Engineer Donnelly of the excursion train was burned in the wreck. His fireman jumped and .es caped with slight injuries. The forward car of thejexcursion train was filled with passengers, who made frantic etforts to escape, but notwith standing hundreds of brave and willing hands were immediately at work to as sist in their rescue, it is feared a number of lives have been lost and that they will be burned beyond recognition before the bodies can be got out of the wreck. At So’clock, when a thousand people were crowding around the burning pile, one of the oil tanks on the cars suddenly ex ploded, throwing hundreds to the ground with great force, and scattering the fire In all directions, and severely, perhaps fatally, injuring a man. At 8:30 nine bodies were taken out and they were burned to a crisp. It is almost impossible to ascertain with any certainty the names of those lost in the wreck until the train arrives from Port Stanley. There are many conflicting rumors, but it seems almost certain that Engineer H. Ponnely, Mr. Sealand, clerk in a Nickleborough dry goods store, and his child and wife, and a child of Jas. Smithers, a dry goods merchant, were burned to death. A son of Mr. Potts, Master Mechanic of the Michigan Central Railroad, was burned on the neck, and scores of others, who were taken to their homes and wjiose names could not he learned. Gangs of men under the direction of SuptMorfordand Supt. Morheadof the Michigan Central Railroad, and .1. Stewart, agent for the Grand Trunk, are hard at work removing the debris. It is expected that the track will be clear by night. The telegaph wires were destroyed and several poles were burned, thus in terrupting communication. Board ol 1'ariloux.
