LYON COUNTY TIMES.
DAYTON, - - - N EVA 1>A. Saturday.January 30,1892. Many are the pages of the Con , greKxinnnl Record devoted to descrip tions of the woes inflicted upon the poor cotton planters by the duty on cotton ties. Mr. Mills found the ex tent of their alleged oppression from this source to he 35 per cent, ad va lorem and placed cotton ties on the free list in his bill. Mr. McKinley found the same rate and raised it to 1 3-10 cents a pound amid the re newed lamentations of the opposi tion. Now, mark the result. Not a tie has been imported in over thirteen months, although for the year ending June, 1890, we had im ported 44,621,533 pounds. “Ah, but,” the Free-Tfhder will inter pose at this point, “you developed the making of cotton tics, a branch of manufacturing, at theexpenseof the cotton grower, who was com pelled to pay more for his cotton ties.” In which the Free-Trader is exactly opposed to the truth. Cot ton ties have fallen 20 per cent, un der the new law. Protection worked here as it has in hundreds of other instances. When the home market was secured to our own manufac turers they went to work turning out cotton ties in such large quan tities that the price went down, while only the quality of the ties and the savings bank accounts of the American workingmen employ ed at making them went up. It is amusing to see the change in the tone of the Democratic press since President Harrison’s Chilean message went to Congress. A week ago, they bewailed the want of back bone in the administration’s dealing with the question. Such partisan view is unpatriotic. There is no honest citizen of the country that does not commend the administrat ion’s long-suffering forbearance in dealing with the saucy South Ameri can Republic,at the same time he ap plauds the course pursued finally to maintain the dignity of the Ameri can government. The President acted, not as a Republican nor as a Democrat, but as every true Amer ican would have the President to do: Proclaim to the civilized world that sailors wearing the United States uniform shall be protected in even port at which they may land; that no foreign cabinet shall call the President of the United States a liar. Pai-a Cleveland, of the Demo cratic household, is now in a peck of trouble. He is crying like a baby that has to eat at the second table. Tammany and Hill don’t confer with him often enough to suit the big I that used to fairly bristle in his speeches. He even sulks in his tent, and rumors come thick and fast that he will with draw from the contest for the Dem ocratic presidential nomination. Of course his “advisers” want him to rush into the breach and save the country once more, and he may yet offer himself as a sacrifice upon the altar of his country, and all that. The truth is Tammany, Hill and Crisp have got the Democratic party by the seat of the pants, and are making it dance to their music. It is a surprise to the earnest ad vocates of the free coinage of silver to see Teller, of Colorado, advocating the holding of a Hi-metallic Con gress. This move is simply one to give the enemies of free coinage a little time, and also give insincere Senators and Representatives a chance to dodge the question. There is no necessity of this coun try conferring with any other coun try on this question. Let her adopt a free coinuge law and it will not be long before all the other countries of the world will follow the exam ple. This idea that the United States must always see what other countries are going to say about our acts is ridiculous. Nevapa’s assessment roll for 1891 was higher than for any preceding year since 1879. Who says the State is retrograding? The Riverside Flouring Mills ought to be substantially encour aged. They have just declared their regular semi-annual dividend of 5 per cent. The Superintend ent reports having bought last year, ,‘5,510 pounds of rye, 7,470 of corn, 11,1580 pounds of oats, 1,066,995 pounds of barley, and 4,910,775 pounds of wheat, making a total of 6,000,130 pounds. The labor and freight account foots up to some thing over $25,000, which snug lit tle sum of money helps the town in which it is distributed. A great many more industries might be carried on just as successfully in Nevada if there were only energetic men with capital who would exhibit a little more faith in the resources of Nevada. State Controller, R. L. Horton, has just issued his annual report for the year 1891. From it the following facts concerning Lyon county are taken: The value of all taxable property in the county is if' 1,774,144.85; the revenue paid to the State is $13,157.05; gaming licenses collected $356.25; poll tax es collected, $687; armory rents paid, $900; county tax, $34,595.82; total tax, $47,901.91; taxes delin quent, $391.73; taxes on proceeds of mines, $410.67; funded debt of county, $29,322; value of county property, $31,500. A monument is to be erected at Wildheim in memory of Parsons and the four other murderous anar chists who were hung in Chicago some years ago. The monument, it is understood, is to cost $8,000 or $10,000, and will be unveiled some time during the World’s Fair. If the people of Illinois allow any such proceedings they deserve to be blown into Lake Michigan with the most diabolical contrivances that this scum of the earth can invent. A Geokgia editor created a sen sation in church while they were singing a well known hymn by bawling out in a spirit of absent mindedness “Let every kindred, every tribe on this terrestial ball, put down their dollars and subscribe and we’ll receipt for all!” He was promptly expelled without even getting a chance to take up a col lection. _ Niiut Blown. The Sierra Nevada Hoisting Works on the Comstock shut down Monday, and operations through the main shaft of that mine suspended. Explorations will hereafter be conducted through the Union Consolidated shaft, owned jointly bv the Sierra Nevada, Union Consolidated and Mexican Mining Companies. This materially re duces tho force of men and the ex penses of operating the Sierra Nev ada mine. mLUABLEPjESEML A Year's Subscription to a Pop ular Agricultural Paper Given Free to Our Readers.
