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. It soothes the child, softens the gums,
allays all pain, cures wind colic, and is the best
