What Wan Done at the Adjourned Press A MHorlation Meeting Last Monday. The newspaper men of Nevada held an adjourned meeting at Sam Davis’ Holstein ranch, near Carson last Sunday, to fix a schedule of ad vertising rates and discuss other matters. In the absense of E. D. Kelley, the President, who was obliged to attend the funeral of Dr. Hazlett, at this place, S. P. Davis was called to the chair. The Secre tary presented a report of what had been done since the meeting on the 25th of September, and made a few suggestions which were acted upon, after which the Association got down to business, and unanimously agreed to charge the rate allowed by law for all legal advertising, re gardless of person. It was also agreed that all advertising of a political nature should be charged for at the rate of $2.50 per square for the first week and $1 per square for each subsequent week, payable in advance. Political parties and candidates are too apt to think that it costs riothing to set type and that the paper has to be “filled up” anyway, and have an idea that the paper is in duty bound to hammer away and hammer hard for two or three months before an election in the interest of their respective par ties and candidates for the love of being a Republican, Democrat, Populist or Silver Party of Nevada paper. The Association wisely con cluded that after this the Press Association would stand as one man and demand fair treatment at the hands of political parties and candidates. It was also agreed that all cards of thanks, in memoriam resolutions and similar matter should be charged for at the paper’s standard rate, and where there are two or more papers in a town and they cannot agree on that standard rate, that the question shall be left to a Board of Arbitration and a rate fixed, and until that time the min imum price for such matter shall be ten cents a line per day. An action was taken also in re gard to traveling showmen and oth er traveling companies or individ uals going into a town and having job work and advertising done and skipping out without paying their bill. Any such companies or in dividuals hereafter visiting any town in this State and leaving with out paying their printing bill, the bill shall be forwarded to some newspaper in the next town visited and the papers of that town will refuse to do business with them un less the hack bill is paid. In other words they will be pressed along the line and denounced as frauds. On motion S. P. Davis, Miss An nie H. Martin and H. A. Lemmon were appointed to compile the news paper laws of Nevada and send the compilation to the Secretary, who in turn will send a copy to every newspaper in this State. A Board of Arbitration was ap pointed to whom all disputes and libel cases if any there be, should be left, and in case any paper of the Association is sued for libel it shall be the duty of the Board to look into the matter and if they find the newspapers in the right the Association will defend the suit. The following named are the com mittee: Allen C. Bragg, S. P. Davis, J. E. McKinnon, H. A. Lemmon and F. W. Fairbanks. Resolved, That resident profes sional men, whose professional card does not appear in one or more papers of the town or county in which he resides, shall not be men tioned in a professional way in any of the papers of this Association. In connection with the meeting of the Association Sam Davis blew himself in on a banquet fit for the gods. Champagne, lemonade and mineral water served as drinks to wash down the nicest of roast pig, turkey, chicken, salad, Holstein ice cream, bread and butter, and in fact everything that a master epicurean mind like Mr. Davis’ could suggest to make people at peace with all the world was spread on a prettily dec orated table and enjoyed by not only the members of the Press Associa tion but by about one hundred of Carson’s most prominent people who were invited to spend the afternoon at Davis’ Holstein ranch. At the conclusion of the business meeting of the Association the fol lowing resolution was unanimously adopted; Resolved, That this Association tender a vote of thanks to S. P. Davis of the Carson Appeal for the splendid banquet and entertain ment accorded ns and for other courtesies extended. -•—♦ MEWLAKUS OK THK OUTLOOK. Congressman Francis G. New lands in a business letter to Hon. JohnS. Mayhugh of Elko, describes the outlook for silver in the east. The Elko Independent, by per mission, publishes the following ex tract from the letter: As you probably know by this time, I was inaccurately reported by the New York paper. It is a part of their campaign programme to misrepresent silver men. I have not changed my views. “My impressions of the silver outlook east of the Mississippi, briefly stated are: It is a contest between the people on one side and the bankers, bondholders railroads an the other. While the masses of the people in the South are over whelmingly for it, yet Northern money and railroad influences are dictating the policies of news papers and leading business men. The sentiment in Illinois and In diana and Kentucky is for silver. With education, Ohio, Pennsyl vania ami New England will make a surprising showing. The silver sentiment is growing, and, if the people will stand united under a silver standard, they will eventual ly triumph. To-day the gold press are trying to create good times, just as two years ago they created a panic, in the hope that it would hurt the silver cause. There may be a little false prosperity, but good times will not arrive until the sil ver question is settled for the peo ple. There is no need to despair, and if other states would follow the independent action of Nevada, the question would be speedily settled. An encouraging and gratifying sign is, the laboring man is holding his own and is successfully resisting the efforts made to decrease his wages.” That Northern money a.id rail road influences are dictating the policy of certain newspapers in Nevada as well as in the East, it is evident to everybody who reads those papers. A New York paper misrepresented Mr. Newlands on the silver question. Several Nevada newspapers, which are for party first and silver afterwards, copied the misstatement, some going so far as to print it in their editorial columns to give it prominence, but none of them published Mr. New lands’ contradiction, the object be ing no doubt, to create the impres sion that prosperity in the East had silenced the demand for free coinage and that Mr. Newlandshad virtually abandoned the silver cause. What can we expect from the Eastern press when papers publish ed in Mr. Newland’s own district publish the garbled goldbug report of his interview and decline to pub lish his corrected statement? Isn’t there abundant evidence that the Republican press of Nevada is in fluenced by bondholders and rail roads fully as much as the Demo cratic and Republican papers of the East.—Reno Journal. -*—* Cubans Should Be Recognised as Belligerents. If we had a Jackson or a Grant at the head of affairs to-day the ar rogant and insolent tone of Spain would soon become as mild as that of a cooing dove. To proclaim that death or deportation awaits every Cuban fighting for the same inde pendence for which our own fore fathers battled more than a hundred years ago, should enlist every American in the advocacy of “Cuba’s libre.” For seven long years the men who made the United States what it is, sacrificed their lives and their for tunes at the altar of liberty, and those who survived saw their count ry relieved from the oppression of foreign despotism and become a harbor or refuge for the oppressed of all nations. In those trying times a nation 3,000 miles away gave the people struggling for liberty not alone its sympathy but the material aid that made victory posssble. America has never ceased to be grateful to France for her practical sympathy, and next to the stars and stripes in American hearts is the tri-color of our sister republic far over the sea. If France was generous enough to extend this support to the strug gling colonists, it would be a dis grace to the American name to see the brave patriots of Cuba, our neighbors and friends, overwhelmed by the hirelings of an effete Spanish monarchy. Spain is a nation that has lost no opportunity to show its dislike to the American Republic as the foremost champion of universal liberty, and there is no reason to be discovered in either diplomacy or delicacy why the government es tablished by the Cuban revolution ists should not be recognized as a belligerent power. If it should be done, Cuba would be free in sixty days, and we would have earned the eternal gratitude of its people.—Sacramento Sunday Leader._ A printing office is usually con sidered a rather tough place; and the newspaper man a mighty bad man. Statistics, however, do not bear out the idea. Of 3,890 convicts in the state penitentiary of Texas there is not a printer or newspaper man, while there are ministers, doctors, bankers, barbers, photog raphers, barkeepers, preachers,cooks and members of all professions and callings. The printer gets a bad name because the nature of his business teaches him to detest shams and he scorns the hypocrite.—Ex. The U, S. Gov't Reports show Royal Baking Powder superior to all others. Queer Advertisements. Here are some queer advertise ments that some one has clipped from the papers: “Two young women want washing. Babies tak en and finished by a country pho tographer. For sale, a handsome piano, the property of a young lady who is leaving Scotland in a wal nut case with turned legs. Want ed, a young man to look after a horse of the Methodist persuasion. A chemist inquires. Will the gen tlemon who left his stomach for analysis please call and get it to gether with the results.” For Over Fifty Yearn. Mrs.\Vinklow’s Soothing Syrup has been used for over fifty years by millions of mothers for their children while teething, with perfect suc cess.
