MN1>AY.FEBRUARY 14, 1875 AGENTS. 1<. V. FISHER. 20 Merchant#’ Exchange, Han Francisco. HOWARD HIFF* Agent and Carrier, T>ayton and Sutro. SIX PAGE EDITION. Where !<• ttio Wiileh-D*K «f •!>' State Treasury T /In the Legislatures of previous vears, there was always present among its members one who was styled “The Watch-Dog of the Treasury.” This session wo have failed to learn of his presence, and in consequence of his absence, a large number of old claims (many of which have been repeatedly re jected ever since Nevada became n State) have been revived, present ed, and in some instances acted upon favorably. Now this is all wrong, unjust, and not honest to the tax-paying citizens of the State. Heavy taxation is a curse to the State, preventing the inauguration of many-enterprises which other wise would have an immediate ex istence, were it not for the fear of these burdens. If the Treasury is plethoric, it is no reason that it should be depleted by such attacks as have been commenced upon it. We ask of the Legislature that these claims should not be allowed, particularly those that have in former years been rejected for cause. So give us no more hasty legislation. ° i Just Claim.—The Board of State Capitol Commissioners have a claim before the present Legislature for an appropriation to reimburse them for expenses incurred in coming to and from Carson City on business connected with the building of the Capitol. Speaking within the bounds of reason, not one of the Board spent a less sum in actual expenses, not to speak of the loss of time, than £2,000. The Board consisted of John H. Mills, Dr. .T. C. Hazlett, F. Stadtmuller, .T. K. Johnson, W. H. Corbett and Jacob Klein. We contend, says the Car son “ Tribune,” and we second that it is but an act of simple justice to reimburse these gentlemen for their actual outlay, at least, and to pay them a reasonable per diem. The State can afford to pay the amount, and it ought not to lie withheld. It is to be hoped that legislators will divest themselves of all prejudice — particularly as j regards the action of the State j Board of Examiners in relation to j the matter—and act as between man and man, without reference to the financial or political status of either of the gentlemen in ques tion. Knightly Greeting. — We are j in receipt of a complimentary ticket j to attend the Twelfth Anniversary of J the Knights of Pythias, to be given by Damon Lodge, No. 3, and Car son Lodge, No. 4, of Carson City, at Moore it Parker's Ilall, Carson City, Friday evening February 19th, 1975. From the high standing of the gentlemen who compose the va rious committees, we can assure all who attend a most enjoyable even ing, one which they cannot find only at such a dance. Tickets are fixed at the very low price of §3 per couple. The Lyon County Times.— This very interesting tri-weekly journal, published at Silver City, is a groat credit to its enterprising proprietor and editor. It came to us yesterday morning with a supplement contain ing very well selected reading mat ter. Go it, friend Kenyon; the peo ple ot your county appreciate your work, and the Times is a most wel come exchange.—Carson Tribune. Bill for Repeal.—Considerable interest is felt in the Quackery Bill lately passed by the Legislature, and a bill for its repeal has been intro duced by Mr. Nichols in the House. The bill is now before the proper committee and will be reported upon within a few days. As the law now stands it works great injury to sev eral worthy praelioners and admits to practice unqaiilied persons. New Ed.—Mr. B. B. Taylor an nounces in the Oakland Neu’sof Feb. 5th, that he has purchased half of that establishment, and assumes edi torial control of the paper. Regular.—We yesterday morn ing received threo copies of the Oak land News, of dates Feb. 3d, 8tli and 9th. We would prefer them daily, as we value the News as exchange. Hied. ■—Donald Davidson, after whom the huge mountain peak that raises its head to the westward of Virginia was named, died in San Francisco on the 29th. Sr. Valentine’s Day.—To-day is 'St. Valentine's Day. A large assort ment of Valentines will bo found on sale at the Post Office, I,« u l«luI i \ «■ C »rrm|M>n<lrncp. (SPECIAL TO THE TIMES.) Carson, February 12. Considerable business was trans acted yesterday; both Houses work ed with a vim, in order to get through with their general files, and give themselves and the people a little rest and relief. STATE PRISON MATTERS. On motion of K. E. Smith, of Storey, the Assembly has adopted a joint resolution, appointing three from that body and four from the Senate, to inquire into the manage ment of affairs at the State Prison. CAPITOL GROUNDS. The bill introduced by Senator Hobart, of Storey, appropriating $25,000 for the improvement of the State Capitol grounds, has been made the special order in the As sembly for Tuesday. WORKING STATE CONVICTS. Senator Lockwood’s bill author izing the managers of the State Prison to hire out the labor of con victs, finally passed, and now goes to the Governor. VIRGINIA CITY MATTERS. Wren’s Assembly bill, amending the charter of Virginia so as to em power the Board of Aldermen to levy a city license on gambling houses, and confine houses of pros titution to prescribed limits, was, on motion of Senator Piper, laid tem porarily oil the table, to await a full Senate. CENTENNIAL EXPOSITION. Senator Stevenson has introduced a bill appropriating 820,000 for the purchase of mineral specimens to the Centennial Exposition. It also provides for the working of a quartz mill on the grounds. THE CARSON MINT. Senator Stevenson, of Storey, has also introduced a concurrent resolu tion memorializing Congress to ap propriate 8200,000 for the enlarge ment of the Mint at this place. In view of the rapid and astonishing development of our mines, the en largement ot this mint is an actual necessity. Its present capacity is far inadequate to even the present coinage necessity of this State—to say nothing of tlie constantly in creasing supply of precious metals. Friday, in response to a resolution of the Senate, Supt. Crawford trans mitted a statement of the operations of the Mint for the years 1872-3-4. Subjoined is the coinage for the years named: Pieces. Value. 1872—Gold. .52.1:1(1 $7:12,1100 1872—Silver. 258,481) 150.1110 1*7:1—Gold. :u,:»J :i02.564 1874—Gold. 158,131! 2 X70,675 1874—Silver. 1,459,017 1,411,781 The eoinage during the year 1874 was fully three times greater than during any previous year. To ex ecute the coinage demanded, an en largement ot the Mint is required. The monthly deposits amount to 8400,000 in gold and 8300,000 in silver. Tlie Superintendent esti mates that the bullion product in 1870 will reach the enormous sum of 8<>0,000,000. To provide for the constantly increasing demand for coinage, an enlargement of the Mint is deemed absolutely neiessary, and it was in view ot memorializing Congress on this subject that a state ment from the Superintendent was solicited. nous AND GOATS. A bill has passed the Senate pre venting bogs, goats and other ob noxious animals from running at largo, was finally passed. T lie pres ent law keeps these animals from running at largo between the 1st of April and the 15th of November. It is proposed to amend the law fencing them in during the whole year, in order to protect meadows and crops in the winter months, also on the grounds that very little dam age can be done during the summer months named. MARRIAGES. Senator Hickey lias introduced a bill changing the present marriage law so as to allow any minister ot the Gospel to perform the marriage ceremony. Under the present law a minister mult be regularly or dained. ABOLISHING THE STATE PRINTER. Senator Rickey, of Douglas, gave notice of his intention to introduce a bill abolishing the office of State I Printer; letting out the State print ing by contract, and appointing a superintendent of the work at u salary of 82,400. STOREV’S DEBT. Senator Piper’s bill providing for funding the floating debt of Storey county, passed. It now goes to tho Assembly. POLL TAX. This is a matter in which we all are interested. A bill introduced by Senator Varian, passed the Sen ato yesterday. It levies a yearly poll-tax of 84 on every voter bet ween the ages of 21 and 60. This tax indebtedness is placed on the assess i ment roll, and considered a lien on all real and personal property, i which the Assessor may seize, and | sell after one hour's verbal notice— the cost of salo not to exceed 83. This tax is due on the first Monday in March. AFTER RAILROADS. A bill requiring companies to 1 fence their roads, or be held liable lor damage done stock, whether through criminal or unintentional I negligence, passed the Assembly. LIBRARIES. A bill lias been introduced in the Assembly providing for the estab lishment of free public libraries in each township, if the majority of mechanics vote in favor of it. Also encouraging the formation of libra ries in public schools. When $20 has been subscribed in any school district for that purpose, the State will subscribe an equal amount. NOTICEABLE PARTIALITY. The Senate this evening tendered the use of the Chamber to Miss Sal lie Hart to lecture in, some even ing next week. Day before yester day some Senators who favored ex- ; tending this courtesy to Miss Hart, | refused the same to Mrs. Kerns for a spiritualistic seance, saying they | opposed allowing the use of the hall to anybody, for any use what- ] ever. Certainly, the ways of some Senators are like the wrath of the Deity. OUTSIDE NOTES. There has been so many lectures, spiritualistic seances, socials and other general disorders, that the third House has deemed it expedient not to convene in session extraor dinary, as they wish to give all hands a chance to attend on this rare occasion. Both Houses having adjourned, the town is as dull as camp meeting after the departure of the mourners. All the members who could borrow $20 went up to Virginia. Next week the town will go short on amusements, and so will I on this letter now. •!. M. S. _ _ At it Again.—We learn that the individual mentioned gratuitously in J these columns a few days since, has been at his old tricks again. On Wednesday last he disturbed a num ber of little girls while at play near Wad del's corral. On this occasion, as upon the |one mentioned he.used most foul language. Some of the par ents of children attending the Public School will make it disagreeably hot for him ii he is not careful. We think him a fit subject for Wood bridge. Left Carson.—On the adjourn ment of both Houses on Friday, several members departed for their homes, all, in fact, excepting those who were detained on committee duty. • Senator Davenport and Speaker Dovey came up on the evening train. Thanks.—We are in receipt of reports of State officers Commit tees, Assembly and Senate bills, etc., from our delegation in the Legislature, as well as from several attaches of the same, for which we return thanks. District Court will convene at Dayton on Monday. The report of the Grand Jury in full we hope to be able to furnish our readers on Tuesday morning.
