Eureka Qaily Sentinel.
SUNDAY. .AUGUST 7, 1887, NEWSPAPERS Too many people labor under the im pression that newspapers should be par excellence whether they are patronized or not. They expect to see a paper crowded with news, yet they will not contribute a farthing for its support. Very often the remark is made: “ I will give you an ad or subscription to help you along.” Newspaper men are not ob jects of charity and do not labor as such. They give more than value received for all the business in the way of advertis ing they get. Those men who take this charity view of the matter, are unmind ful of the fact that the advertising col umns of a newspaper are the index of the prosperity of their town or city. A live paper, filled with business advertise ments, is indicative of the welfare of a town and is the best representation that could be made. They attract home seekers to a locality that would other wise never come. Capitalists who are in search of landed investments are at tracted by them. Of course all adver tisements help the newspaper man, just as a sale of goods aids the business man, but at the same time, it benefits the one who advertises to a much greater extent than it does the printer. Any town can have a good paper if it receives proper support. Just so with a business estab lishment. Advertising has done more to enrich men than anything else in the world. A man who fully understands what newspapers are and what they do, never puts in an advertisement to help the printer along, but does it exclusively to benefit himself. It is a matter of legitimate business, and not one of char ity. Encourage the business interests of the printer, as he encourages the growth and business interests of your town, county and State, and a live, energetic and newsy paper will follow.—Reno Journal. _ The Prohibitionists are making pre parations for another defeat next Fall. What they hope to accomplish in the po litical field is drifting farther away from them all the time. Fruitless struggles do not benefit the cause for which they labor. To the contrary it is only an ex poso of a frightful minority. Never while this world revolves can they gain a point nationally, by dabbling in pol itics. If they desire to accomplish any good they must do so as a moral and not as a political organization. No one particularly objects to temperance so cieties or censures them for the work they are doing in a legitimate field of labor, but they do censure such organi zations for trying to force their ends through a political channel. It would be just as consistent for the different religions denominations to jump into the arena and endeavor to cram Christianity into the people through Legislative en actments. The temperance question is one that must depend upon reason and not upon the ballot box for success. The Alta demands that the private detective be brought under surveillance and control of the law. It is a wise suggestion. These irresponsible free lance Hawkshaws are capable of endless mischief, and they must be purer, firmer and more courageous than many men, if they are not made agents, very often, of private wrong, tyranny, and blackmail. The Alta denominates them “ wretches,” who tempt others to crime and put up conspiracies to the ruin of men and women. This may be drawing it too strongly; but that their private detect ive business is one that needs "regulat ing ” no one conversant with public af fairs will deny.—Record-Union. A strange fatality seems to hang over the Susquehanna colliery at Nanticoke, Pennsylvania. Since the disaster of December, 1885, by which twenty-six men and boys wero entombed in a cham ber which it has never been found pos sible to reach, fatal accidents have fol lowed each other in quick succession, the latest which occurred having killed one man and injured two others beyond hope of recovery. The fact that men can be found to work in a place filled with such dreadful memories shows how intense is the straggle for bread and what dangers men will brave merely to sustain themselves and their families. It is stated that a company of Amer ican capitalists are negotiating with the Mexican Government for a concession to construct a canal through the Yaqni river valley. A million and a half dol lars is to be invested in the property. The extent of the proposed canal is not known, but it will open up hundreds of thousands of acres for cultivation. Governor Rice, of Massachusetts, says that Blaine is not the choice of that State, but he can carry it in the Presi dential campaign. Gladstone believes an appeal to the country to-day would place the Liberals again in the ascendant. Hog oholera is sweeping away the swine herds of Yolo. One farmer there reoently lost 200 bogs. Pork is not a popular meat anywhere in California at preeent. TELEGRAPHIC. A Chance In Mexico for American*. New York, Aug. 5.—Janies W. Porch, ex-Consul-tGeneral to Mexico, is now here. He says: “While com mercially speaking, we apparently get no foothold in Mexico except in rail roading, Frenchmen, Germans and Spaniards are reaping a rich harvest. Tne antagionsm to American interests there is exaggerated. My _ belief is that Americans who are inclined to tie law-abiding citizens will be as fully protected, both in personal and prop erty rights, as the natives are. Their mode of doing business is rather slow, and sometimes to us exceedingly irk some, but eventually the foreigners succeed in getting what they ask for, provided it is within the bounds of reason. Credit is good in Mexico, failures few and far between,and while payments are sometime deferred, claims are seldom lost. We have a field there for large o[ierations if wre only see fit to seize the opportunity.” A Solcil Cracknmnu Arrested. Jersey City, Aug. 5.—Detectives to day. arrested Geo. Farth, a noted burglar, who is wanted for burglary at Fairchild & Co.’s jewelry store in Bridgeport, Conn. On July 17 the safe was broken open and $15,000 worth of diamonds and jewelry stolen. Ho returned recently from a profes sional trip to Europe which is said to have been very successful. In his lodgings a startling array of burglars tools wrere found, including jimmies, wedges, locks, picks, sledges, saws, braces and bits of all kinds and over 500 keys of various shapes, wax im pressions of keys and books containing cipher entries. Ten pounds of dyna mite cartridges were found buried in the yard. The detectives say it is the most complete burglar outfit they ever saw. A tthititljr lUscovery. Benson, A. T., Aug. 5.—Word comes from Tombstone that at the springs near there a little girl had found the skull of a child, and had brought it into the house, not know ing what it was. The girl led the in mates of the house to the place, where in searching around thev discovered the trunk of a child, and also the skel eton of a man, with his boots on, hid den under some brush. The boots, from all appearances, seemed not to have been worn much, and from their style had been made to order. Tbe two bodies were found close together, covered only by some loose brush, as if they had been hurriedly buried. A Coroner’s jury have gone out to inves tigate the case. Low Kitten on CMOtil woods. San Francisco, Aug. 5.—Competi. tion among therailroads having resulted in the whittling down of rates on canned goods to a very low figure, Cal ifornia shippers are now sending large shipments of canned fruit to Chicago, St. Louis and other eastern points. The rate to Chicago, St. Louis and Missouri River is seventy-five cents per 100 pounds. To New York the rate is $1, while to Ogden where there is no competition by rail the rate is $1.28. It is estimated that the ship ments will be nearly double those of any previous year. Indian Troubles In Minnesota. Aiken, Minn., Aug. 5.—The squaws confined in jail for threatening to kill a white woman have been released, as the authorites were in awe of the bucks, who had assembled in large numbers. Couriers have arrived from Willow river, bringing intelligence that the Indians are killing stock belonging to settlers. Indian Agent Kheehen, of Brainard, will be consulted, and deci sive measures to stop the outrages will be taken. A Female Horse Tblef. Chicago, Aug. 5.—Sarah Wheeler, the noted woman horse thief who has been in jail here some time waiting trial for failing to return a livery rig, was convicted to-day and given a sen tence of three months imprisonment. She has had an exceptionally adven turous career, having been at one time a participant in the exploits of Charles Mead, the notorious horse thief in the Northwest. Two Million Pounds or Ten. New York, Aug 5.—A dispatch to the Maritime Exchange of this city from Yokohama says the Ameiican ship A. G. Roper left that port a few days ago with 2,000,000 pounds of new teas, the greatest cargo ever shipped on one vessel from Yokohama. The consignment is bound to the care of tho Northern Pacific Railroad Com pany, which is to forward it to Liver pool. Vnnbed tn Deatb. Green Bay, Wis., Aug. 5.—A beer kettle in Raper’s brewery exploded last night, scalding seven men, six of whom died during the night. Thev are August Delforge and two sons, S. B. Hailbe, John Biemeret and George Hailbe. Delforge and Biemeret leave families. The kettle had 700 barrels of boiling water which poured over the victims, literally cooking their flesh. Ballroad Accident. Richmond, Aug. 5.—An accident oc curred yesterday afternoon about a mile west of Greenwood on the New port News and Mississippi Valley railroad, by which a first-class coach and two sleepers on the Louisville ex ¥ress were thrown from the track. he baggage-master and others were injured more or less seriously.

A Building Blown Down. Cincinnati, O., Aug. 5.—A wind storm visited Corrovillo yesterday afternoon and blew down a building on which carpenters were working, in jurying ten of them, some fatally. Tramps. ( Something should bo done to abate the tramp nuisance. Instead of diminishing, the numbor is constantly increasing. Bfgf stout fellows who could make a living any where, wander from place to place, dis daining to work, and pass about half their time in jail. There is no excuse at this season of the year for them to follow the life they do. Men are wanted in nearly every portion of the State, and good wages paid for labor. Those fellows who are too indolent to work when an op portunity is afforded them, should when arrested, be made to work out their time in some manner. The adoption of such a coarse would soon cause them to give Beno a wide berth. Sometimes good, hard working men are misjudged and taken for tramps; snch men do not go hungry or lounge about our towns when they can ob tain employment. Somo plan ought to be devised to squelch the tramp nuisance, and hard work will como as near doing it as anything else. Give them a dose.— Journal. NEW TO-DAY. STATE UNIVERSITY NOTICE.
