LYON COUNTY TIMES. WEDNESDAY.NOV. 1J, 1876 GRANT AND THE SOUTH. The impudence of ex-Governor Palmer of Illinois in adversely criti cising tbo President's recent order* respecting troops for Louisiana is uasnrpasaed by anything that has been developed in the present emer gency. Wuile the press of the coun try, Democratic and Republican alike, are cautioning the people against anv hasty demonstration that might precipitate a serious crisis, the President, in obedience to h:s duties and his oath of office, takes the pre caution to order troop* to the center of excitement. Governor Palmer pronounces such an act unstatoaman-; like, and says that Grant has only one idea of government, and that is (that he and the army are the only and all sufficient power. Surely be and tha army are the only sufficient power in a situation like the present j one. His impartial action in direct- j ing Sherman to preserve order in the j turbulent States, and his statement j tliat the candidate receiving the j highest nuuiU-r of electoral votes; should be inaugurated, mark him as i iust the man for tins particular time. I Events might easily happen now Thu jpould prove Grant again the most serviceable man the country lias. The way to prevent serious disturb ance is to lie prepared to quell it in its incipience. That w as the object of the order directing troops to Louisiana. To such a proceed ure Governor Palmer olyecTs. If there should turn out to l<e no uevd for | troojis in the pivot ^atos their pres- i ence there ought not to be objection able. The fact that Democrats iu *ist that there is no occasion for an armed force, while Republicans in sist that there is, should t>o proof enough ti> an impartial chief com mander that the safest way would be to supply them in advance of any great exigency. The riot that broke out in Broad street. New Orleans, on the eight of the eighth, in which three were killed and tifty wounded, showed tile need for some all-suf ficient power to enforce the law s. On that occasion a company of troops came to the scene of the riot ju»t in time to prevent a ni >re disastrous conflict. Subsequently the troops fiatrolled the streets and preserved .quiet. The whole objection to the pres ence of soldiers in tiic South, which has been dweij upon a!! along by the Democrats, is now quite cia»r. The soldiers interfered with the designs of the lawless White Leaguers and prevented their carrying out any high handed pjan of victory. That 1? the objeetiou now. The Democrats would like to have it all their own way. and carry the election whether or no. Leading Democrats and Re publicans have gone South to bo present at the action of the Return ing Boards and see that their parties are dealt w ith fairly. The troops are to preserve the jK-ace What better o*ethod coaid be devised under any government in the world! It shows that the good judgment of the (am ple, joined with the power vested in Jhe central authority, is sufficient to prevent, in any emergency, a state of affairs patterned after Mexico. It shows that the people are capable of •elf-government, and the Republic is to stand through every storm. But it must be born in mind that the Democratic element contribute little or nothingto tlmexcelu-nt condition. The Democrats are tbe revolutionists of tbe country, tbe most dangerous class in a crisia like tbe present one. The action of the President we regard as the moat wise and fair that cou'd have been done, and those who ob ject to it are actuated by motives that are dangerous to barter. It is singular that no one dis covered before hard that a Post piaster is not elcgible to be a Presi dential Elector. One by the name <rf H. IV. Sal lace haa been elected in earwont on the Republican ticket. The Democrats say they will contest few right to Oast a vote, and that. Since be is unlawfu !!y en elctor, one of the Democratic candidates must taka his place to make the full foots of electoral votes for the Bute. The osutaet ji now so close that one vote might torn the scale, and the dispute over this mail'* right to a vote in the electoral col lege promisee to be carried to the farthest extreme. Tub San Francisco Chronicle says that the first Chinaman that ever voted in California cast hie ballot on election day in the Fourth Ward of that city. The Chinaman produced bis naturalization (tapers after voting and testified that lie had been a citi zen for two years. Then the asser tion so often made that Chinamen are not eligible to naturalization, is practically set aside. The clause in the Burlingame Treaty that is gen erally supposed to prevent the ex ercise that of privilege on the par* o! Chinauien coming to this country means really that nothing in the Treaty shall bo co.tsUuod as con ferring naturalization on Chinamen in this country or Americans in China. It is not presumable, how ever, that many Chinamen will im prove the opportunity for Ivcooming citizens. They regard their resi dence in this country as ouly tem porary, and they are never in har mony with our institutions and can not be expected to loci an interest iu them. A Democratic contemporary is wrong in saying that the President manifested a lack of confidence in those of his own party now in power in the three important Southern States, when he invited northern He- ! publicans to go down there and j watch them, lie a* the same time J invited northern Democrats to go down there for the same purpose', although there were plenty of Demo crats, with all the party characteris tics, then on ihe ground lor all pur* poses of surveillance. The fact that the condition of the States in ques tion is a had one, ami the strife there strong tictween the parties, calis foi this visit of promiueut men. The U-st way to insure tair play alt round is the way adopted and now being carrit d out. State Items. Eureka was visited by a snow storm ou Saturday last. The Humboldt Register lias changed from a daily to a weekly. Mrs. Mary Fisher, wife of Ber. nard Fisher" of Winuemucca, has ln-en pronounced insane aud cou- . vevt-d to the \\ oodbrioge asylum.

The Reno Journal says: ‘•There’ is » nue talk of a change in the time table of the lightning train, an lu»ur • la ore laing required ell the Sacm nieutu di\iaiou, each way. The squabble into which Mr. Downing of The Heno Journal was orawn in the recent political cam paign i> gradually assuming a suajK* more favorable to that gentleman s j character, uow that the excit nicnt of the contest i» passed.
