LYON COUNTY TIMES.
Dayton, • - . nuvada. Saturday.February 4, 1893. i'A.V WEOIIOW OUR Oil * KUNAEV f The people of the United States consume at least a million and a half tons of sugar every year. At present not more than 10 per cent, of that amount is produced within our own territory. Cuba produces about 900,000 tons of cane sugar, German}’ produces 1,200,000 tons of beet sugar, and other European countries as much more. The total sugar product of the world is a lit tle over six million tons. The world’s consumption of sugar is rapidly outrunning the production. In three years it has increased 1, 083,000 tons, an average of 361,000 tons per year. Last year the con sumption was 6,289,000 tons, and if this year shows the usual increase the consumption will be 6,650,000 tons. Careful statisticians, how ever, have estimated this year’s probable crop at only 6,160,000 tons, of which 3,400,000 tons is produced from beets and 2,760,000 tons from cane. It is evident, therefore, that unless there is soon a large increase in sugar production, the demand will largely exceed the supply. The production of sugar from beets was first begun in France in 1811, under the auspices and direct ion of Napoleon Bonaparte. It is only within the last thirty years, however, that beets have rivaled and finally surpassed cane as sugar producers. At present continental Europe not only grows its own sugar, but also exports largely, principally to the United States, which is, both absolutely and in proportion to population, by far the1 greatest sugar consuming country in the world. If Europe can pro duce her own sugar, why cannot the United States do the same thing? It has been found by ex periment that the beets in Germany produce from 10 to 18 per cent, of saccharine matter, and at the latter figure their cultivation is exceed ingly profitable. It has been dem onstrated that in the vast dry up land plains of our Western country, where the sun is almost always shin ing, and whero the amount of mois ture can be regulated by irrigation, the beets will produce at least 18 per cent, of saccharine matter; and it is fair to presume that with prop er selection of seed and proper cul tivation the percentage could be raised at lea6t to 20. The raising of beets for this purpose has only lately been begun in the United 6tates, but the concerns that are now operating are understood to be making a handsome return upon the capital invested. li Europe, witn its limited area and its partially worn out soil, can raise sugar for its own consumption, certainly this country, with its al most limitless expanse of cultiva ble lands not yet in use, and with its virgin soil and its happier cli matic conditions, ought to be able to raise more sugar than Europe. There is here an opportunity for capital that is not often peesented. The cane sugar supply has about reached its limit. The demand is already in excess of the supply in sight. If the present provisions of the McKinley law with respect to sugar could be maintained it would notbe too much to expect that within a few years the United States would be producing the larger part of its own sugar. Since the revolution in Hawaii there has been a great deal of spec ulation as to whether or not it would be policy for Uncle Sam to take the Islands under his coat-tail. It seems to be the general opinion that Ha waii should belong to the United States, and we believe that it should. That country is largely populated now with Americans who have large interests there—interests that will benefit this country, and they should be one of us. The Islands are valuable property for this coun try to possess. England is already looking with apprehension to see what America will do in regard to | the matter, and if Uncle Sam does i not act quickly she may take the I plum herself. She would like it very much if not fearful of the ob jection of this country, as it would be a great advantage to her in both naval and commercial affairs. The time will come when Canada, Mex ico, Central America, and the entire Western Hemisphere will belong in the United States, and it is an ap propriate time new to gather in the Islands. The same old story of consolida tion of counties, on the grounds of retrenchment, is again being agi tated by the present Legislature. These has not been a Legislature for thS past twelve years that has not brought up the same question, and after due consideration dropped it like a hot potatoe. There is noth ing to be saved by a consolidation of counties. The larger the county the more expensive it will be to sup port a county government. Take our own county, for an example. The consolidation of county officers and the reduction of salaries for of ficers has made it an object for of fices to hunt men, not men the offices. In fact, in some instances the salaries are rediculously low, and should be increased by the present Legislature. Lyon has very little criminal business and few civil cases. She is a peaceable commun ity, and it costs very little in fees and mileage to transact all the law business done here. Should she be annexed to Storey or Ormsby, or split in two for their benefit, the dif ference in the cost of running those counties would more tlion offset the amount that would be saved by do ing away with our county govern ment. There is no wonder that Storey would like to have some of agricultural land and assessable property to help her out, but it would not be fair to the people of this county. Lyon, to-day is one of, if not the most, prosperous agricul tural counties in the State. She is growing slowly but surely, and will in a few years show rapid strides. Should the silver representatives at Washington be able to obtain our rights so far as the unlimited coin age of silver is concerned Lyon would astonish the world by her production of the precious metal. Our people are satisfied with the way they are now situated so far as boundary lines are concerned, and our Legislators had better wait un til those interested ask for a change before they make any. Senator LaGrave has introduc ed a bill to provide for the super vision and use of the waters of the It divides the State into four water divisions, the second division taking in the Carson and Walker rivers and their tributaries. The bill pro vides for a State Engineer, who shall be appointed by the Governor and receive a salary of $2,(XX) a year, and a Board of Control, which is to be composed of the State En gineer and the Superintendents of the four water divisions. The duty of this Board shall be to make proper arrangements for the deter mination of priority of water rights for irrigating purposes. From the decision of the Board any aggriev ed parties may go to the Cruris. The bill seems to be a good one. It has been carefully prepared and is said to be modeled after the Wy oming law, which has stood the test of Courts and given general satisfactiod. Irrigation is of vast importance to Nevada, and the sooner the State takes hold of the matter the better it will be, for with our mining interests paralyzed we have nothing but our agri cultural resources to look to to pull the State out of the muck. It is reported that Colorado sil ver men are going to put up silver to start a silver party paper in New York. This is a good scheme. The people in that benighted country need education on this subject. Instead of consolidating counties for the purpose of econmy the law makers might better abolish some of the deputy State offices and give the principals a chance to earn their salaries.

The farmer who wants to sell well should first find out what is in de mand, then what he can produce to the best advantage, then produce the best with the least expense, get it to the best market at a minimum cost, have it arrive ii) firstdasscon dition at a time when it is wanted. This requires reading, thinking, observation, patience, persevrance, tact, judgment, industry and econo my. If these are lacking all the grumbling on earth cannot cure the defeat_ Xa (teat Mince. It is stated that a Joliet preacher recently delivered a sermon on “The Creation” and in the course of his remarks said: “God made the earth, then rested. lie made man and again rested from His labors. Last he made a woman. Since then,” reflectively remarked the preacher, “neither God nor man have had a rest.” _ K«w Try Ttalat.
