LYON ^COUNTY TIMES
DA VTQN, - - . NEVADA. Saturday .... September 5, 1891. HE WAS ALL RILHT The old fellow limped a little as he came into the lawyer’s office on Griswold street to fix np a deed for a nice farm he had just bought 50 miles from the city. “What’s the matter?” inquired the attorney, “got the rheuma tism?” “No,” laughed the old fellow, “got a bullet in the war.” “Don’t you get a pension?” “No siree,” with emphasis. “Why not?” “Caise.1 fit for $13 a month and the Union, and that’s enough for me.”—Detroit Eree Frets. There is more to think of in the above than many would suppose at first reading. The old gentleman spoken of was a true soldier, and he probably did more fighting than a dozen men who are now drawing pensions because they had a finger or toe shot off or received a saber scratch or two in the war of the rebelion. It must not be under stood that we are opposed to the paying of pensions to deserving soldiers who were crippled in the war so as to incapacitate them from gaining a living by laboring. To the men who fought for the Union all honor is due. But to those who were but slightly injured and are now able to support them selves, and those who are well fixed we would say, read the above care fully. Congress, from year to year, is appropriating millions of dollars for pensions, and it seems that the roll is becoming longer each year. Large pensions are granted to the widows of army officers who are not in the least in need of assist ance from the government, and some of them have actually had this money thrust upon them. It is, in our opinion, time to call a halt in the pension business when the sisters, cousins and aunts of deceased saldiers begin to call for assistance from the government be cause a relative of theirs gave up his life for his country. The needy should be helped, and they alone. ALLEGED BLACKMAIL. James E. Lyon has brought suit Against Senator William M. Stew art, of Nevada, for $1,000,000 dam ages. The suit grows out of com plications over mining deals; among the properties concerned being the Emma mine, of U tali. Lyon asserts that Stewart, while acting as his attorney, conspired with T. W. Park and others to deprive him of his mining rights. Stewart, he al leges, made statements to him re garding the property which led him to dispose of his holdings for $200, 000, while Stewart realized $2,000, 000 by the deal. The bill goes into the details of the matter at great length. Senator Stewart denies the alle gations of fraud and conspiracy and charges Lyon with blackmail. He says Lyon lost all his money speculating and then came to him (Stewart) and threatened suit. Stewart regarded this as blackmail and said so. At the same time he asked Lyon how much he wanted. Lyon took $50,000 and signed a re lease of all claims against Stewart or Park. This is another scheme of the .gold bugs to slander Stewart. He is making things a little too inter esting for them in his silver discus sion, and they are bringing every thing to bear against him that they can possibly make up. Secbctary Foster reports our financial condition to be excellent and improving every day. He an ticipates not the slightest difficulty in taking up such of the 4^ per cent bonds as shall not be presen ted for extension at 2 per cent on or be fore September 2, which is the last -day that they can be extended. He Joes not think the amount to be re deemed will much exceed $20,000, <000, and he has an available bal ance of $106,000,000 exclusive of the $100,000,000 in the much writ ten about “gold reserve” fund. These bonds like all issued by our Government are made payable in gold should the holder desire it, and as the Treasury has in its vaults more than $29,000,000 in gold coin, in addition to the “gold reserve,” there will be no difficulty in accom modating the owners of the bonds presented for redemption even should they all desire to be paid in gold. This state of affairs is very gratifying to everybody, but the Democratic calamity wailers who have for months been saying that the United States Treasury would be bankrupt, and that when the time came to take up these bonds it would be compelled to default in the payment of them. Of course those of them who know anything knew better all the time, but hav ing been so successful last Fall in their campaign of misrepresenta tion they have for lack of any other principle adopted that method of fighting the Republican party.
