A max living in a glass house
should not throw stones. One Sum
ner, who, while a member of the
State Legislature, proved a loss of
over $50,000 to the treasury, spoke
at Dayton a few evenings since and
vented his spleen against the Times,
in fact, devoted the most of his
harangue of an hour or more, to us.
As we were unrepresented at that
immense Independent-Hybrid gath
ering, we cannot give the speech in
full. In the Independent of yester
day morning, we find it partly re
ported by himself, lie being the
paid slushslinger of Mr. Sutro.
This Confederate Colenel is a very
nice duck to talk about the “ sub
sidized press,” he himself being
imported as a hireling, a tool of the
great bore. It would be well for
gentlemen (?) of his kind to con
sider the position they themselves
occupy, by so doing they may avoid
the jeers of the populace.
Ir the Opposition and Inde
pendent press lay any claim to
truth and honesty in their charges
against the Republican party, they
will be forced to invent some new
line of attack, and abandon the
story of extravagance in the Gov
ernment expenditures.
The matter of economy is one of
the chief aims ot the Administra
tion, snd every intelligent man in
the country will acknowledge very
great success in that direction.
Retrenchment and economy are
the watchword and the policy, and
will be as long as there is room for
a dollar's reduction in the cost of
Governmen; without detriment to
the public interests.
There will be services at the
School House on Sunday evening.
Bev. Olmsted officiating.
•• Republican ” «<» the Front.
Silver City, Oct. 30,1874.
Mb. Editor:—On the 28th instant
a paid whiffet, who has no “ visible
means of support,” bad a communi
cation published in the independent ;
j it was simply a very weak tissue of
I falsehoods, and the “piece” or its
| “ author ” were scarcely worthy of
the castigation given them the
! next day, by an editorial in the
Times. In that communication he
“ requested a small space, for the
purpose of giving a short history of
the independent movement in this
county.” Now, a history of tho
independent movement in I.yon coun
ty was just what the great, -majority
ot tho people of the county would
like to road. But, the five or six
Sore-head manipulators of the move
ment did not want, the thing made
I public, and as soon as whiffet had
j written his first paragraph they
| stopped him, and ho “switched oil ”
(and changed tho subject to the
I “subsidized press." Here whiffet’s
'natural truth-tolling (?) proclivities
crop out again: when ho says that
the “ paper was to be an independ
ent, no-party sheet.” At the time
the paper was started the independ
ent party had no being, and its pros
pectus announced that the Times
would be an “advocate of tho Re
publican party and principles uot
that it would endeavor to infuse life
into the afterwards-prepared corpse
of a Sore-head-hybrid independent
democratic party. The “ leading
citizens” of Lyon county did not
expect or want it, and if whiffet and
the class to which ho belongs did,
mey nave ut'ii grievously uisap
pointed. Now, a word about our
Kepublicau Primaries. Whiffet says
“everybody knows how that Repub
lican (Sharon) slate was made up
for our (?) primaries; how all our
best and most honorable (?) citizens
were carefully left out in the cold.”
What does the record show? The
straight Republican ticket in Silver
City received an average of 162,
I while 4.I10 other side averaged 96;
leaving a majority of 66. In Dayton
the vote stood 129 to 81, a majority
of 48 for the Republican ticket, and
this is what whiffet would call a put
up job. The “ best and most hon
orable citizens whom this majority
carefully left out in the cold,” I will
take up and consider in my next
communication. In the Independent
of to-day whiffet has again spread
himself. He tells us not anything
new; that “ Mr. Win. R. King is the
Sharon candidate for State Senator,
and that he is Superintendent of the
Eureka Mill and receives a salary of
five hundred dollars per month.”
Mr. King is the Republican candi
date for the State Senate, and, as is
the case with nine-tenths of the true j
Republicans throughout the State,
he is in favor of tile election of Wil
liam Sharon to the United States
Senate. He has worked himself up
from a laborer to the position he
now holds; he may receive five hun
urea dollars per month—and, it lie
does, lie is worth it to the Company |
that employ him, or they would not '
pay it. He is honest and capable,
and will represent Lyon county in :
the State Senate with lion r to him
self and to the satisfaction of his
constituency. Above all, lie is a
gentleman—far removed above at
tacks emanating from such a source.
Whiffet says ‘- Mr. Dovey is a resi
dent of Silver City, -devoted to
Sharon,’ ‘ a youth unknown to
fame,’ ’* etc. If whiffet had lived in
Lyon county a few years instead of
a few months, he would have known
that Mr. W. C. Dovey was a mom
her of the Assembly from this
county four years ago, and that his
course during the session of 1871 met
with the universal approbation of'
liis constituents; in fact, lie made
one of the best members we have
ever elected in Lyon county. He
will be re-electod on next Tuesday,
and his most simple word and least
act will be remembered when
| whiffet’s whole life history will have
been forgotten. Mr. L. Morrill of
I Dayton is an honest, straightforward
j business man. If ho made some
money in the legitimate business of
selling ice, which is the more hon
orable; that, or the illegitimate call
ing of whiffet’s? Mr. Hugh Carling
of Fort Churchill lias resided on a
| larin, with the exception of the time
: he gave to his education, since boy
1 hood. He is a young man, of good
I steady habits, married, and respected
i by liis friends and neighbors. He
will not gainsay tho title of hoodlum
if applied to whiffet, anil will not go
behind a nom de plume to decide it.
More Anon, Republican.

ment of $LOO.
TII El It TRI E POSITION.
The whole tone of the Independ
ent movement Is Democratic, and
shows that the tendency of the few
Sore-heads who left the Republican
party to form a new party is to affil
iate with the Democracy.
The resolutions in their platform,
with tiie exception of the first one,
are so thoroughly Democratic in
their tone, that Slim Tom Williams
finds no trouble in adopting them.
Not a word of praise for the many
good things the Republican party
iias done; not a single allusion to
its brilliant past and honorable
present; not a line against Demo
cratic misrule in those Slates where
it holds power; not a sentence refer
ring to or protesting against the
fearful outrages in tiie South; not a
word of encouragement or hopt :o
the loyal citizens who to-day look to
the Government for help; not a sug
gestion in regard to tho necessity of
protecting American citizens; and
all these vital omissions in tiie plat
form of a party that claims to bo
liberal in its policy, reformatory in
its character, and patriotic in its
purposes. The sooner these Inde
pendents openly identify themselves
witii the Democracy the better.
The few honest Republicans who
left our party to join them, can no j
longer lie deceived by their clamor
for reform. Their actions justify |
our early convictions that tiie party, j
from its inception, has been an ally i
of Democracy, and was, iu its form
ation, a blind to draw from the Re
publican ranks sufficient strength to
place the atlairs of tiie Government
in Democratic hands. the move
ment will fail, thanks to a patriotic
people, who have detected the
deception, and refuse to be a party
to the betrayal of the Republic.
The tight this fall is the same old
fight, Democracy on the one hand,
Republican on the other. Tito stake
is a valuable one—the possession
of the State Government and of the
House of Representatives.
The Republican party is so closely
allied to the life of the nation, that
wo have as strong a conviction in
the success of the one as wo have in
the perpetuity of the other. I.et its
friends work earnestly, and our full
victory will send a thrill of joy
throughout the land.
It seems to worry “ Independent”
muchly that the Times prospers,
and is likely to do so for all time,
notwithstanding his threats that the
business men of Silver City would
discontinue their patronage as soon
as their contracts expired. We are
confident if he withdrew his ex
tensive patronage from any office it
would collapse in a tortuight, hence
we trust he will reconsider and not
withdraw his patronage from the
Times. Ilis patronage! There is,
not a restaurant in Slippery Gulch
or Gold Cation but know him to
their sorrow. We think ho had
better travel.

Once Moke.—In tho face of the
most positive proofs, that irrespon
sible scribbler of the Independent,
insists that the Times was started as
an Independent paper. The respon- ;
sible patrons of tlie paper know this
to bo a prevarication of immense
proportions; siuiplv this, and noth
ing more.
Democrats Speaking.—Tlie peo
ple of Dayton are having their (ill
of political speaking. Fast evening
A. C. Kilis and J. R. Kittrell talked
old-fashioned democracy for an hour
or so each. A large delegation went
down from this place — that same
spring wagon, with the addition of
one Sore-head, making six in all.
There is to be a mass meeting of
tho Republicans at Virginia City
this evening, at which Hon. C. E.
DoLoug, Dr. J. C. Ilazlett, William
Woodburn, Esq., Colonel J. C. Za
briskie, and Robert H. Clark, Esq.,
will sjieak. It will be a monster,
see if it don’t.
Will Return.—It is expected
that Theodore Vinson, will return to
Silver City to-morrow morning,
bringing with him his partner for
1 life. They will receive a hearty
1 welcome.
Catholic Service.—Rev. Father
: Clark will have service in the Catho
lic Church, Sunday, November Is’,
at 10 o’clock, and every alternate
1 Sabbath at tho same hour.
