LYON COUNTY TIMES.
DAYTON, - - NEVADA. Saturday. .. .November 23, 1895. Here is an opening for another congressional investigation. The charge is openly made that bids for the iron work on government buildings are juggled with in the office of the Supervising Architect of the Treasury department, for the purpose of giving the contracts to iron manufacturers located in the Southern States. It is charged that it was because of his refusal to do, or to sanction, the required jug gling that Mr. O’ Rourke was asked to resign the position of Architect of the Treasury some months ago. This is a very serious charge, and it is probable that Congress will look into it. The plan followed, according to those who make the charge, is to reject all bids and ad vertise for new ones when favored contractors do not have the lowest. Logan Carlisle, son of the Secre tary, is credited with being the jug gler-in-chief, the present Supervis ing Architect of the Treasury hav ing no authority over the letting of contracts. “Uncle Joe” Cannon, of Utah, thinks the tariff will be the issue in 1896, so far as there will be any need for an issue. And this is the man they are talking about send ing to the U. S. Senate from Utah! Cannon is a Republican ex-Mor mon. If he is such an ignoramus as to place the tariff question above the financial question of the country, it were better he had stayed in the bigamous ranks of the deacons and elders and emi gnted to Mexico. The brethren an i -istren should meet at once on - ks of the River Jordan and '< Tnole Joe’s regeneration mstruction. .ovaley, the Sacramento mer er must hang; Durrant will hang; the Minneapolis woman murderer will hang, and bandit Brady has been sentenced to life imprisonment. Even if the law is a little slow, it meets out justice occasionally, and that at considerable expense to the law-abiding citizens of the country. More justice would lie done, quicker results obtained, and no expense engendered by a committee of one hundred to manage matters of the kind for which the above named men are to be punished. Civiliza tion is an expensive luxury to law abiders. Count Casteli.ane, who recently married Consuelo, has begun to make the $15,000,000 fly. It is re ported that he has spent about 5, (XK>,000 francs of his wife’s money for bric-a-brac, and subscribed lib erally to all popular charity funds in Paris. He has also hit the green cloth and the race track for a snug little fortune. In a year or so Consuelo will fe»*l like hitting her self with a stocking of—mud. The rush in which all parties, east and west, but more especially in east, are picking up gold properties everywhere they can find them, is not a very good omen for silver. It looks as though the monied men had decided that gold is to he the only money ot' the country for some time to come. What a shaking up there will be in this country before many years. Carisle has made another speech at a banquet in New York. Of course the talk was political and against free coinage of silver. The man has been drunk with the greed for gold for some time, and on this occasion did not lose an opportu nity to brand himself as a traitor to his country and an ally of the crowd we once fought to gain our freedom. Should no nihilistic boom cut short the career of Nicholas II of Russia, his reign will be signalized in Muscovite history by the ac complishment of two stupendous projects, namely, the completion of the trans-Siberian railroad and the connection of the Black Sea with the Baltic by means of a canal large enough to admit of the pas sage of the ironclads of heaviest tonnage in the Czar’s navy. The plan for the canal has been official ly promulgated, and work is to be begun without delay. Its point of departure is to be at Riga, and its course, so far as possible, that of the Dwina, the Beresina and the Dnieper, terminating at Kherson. Its minimum depth is to be 30 feet, its bottom width 100 feet, with a surface breadth of twice as much, while its length is estimated at 1,000 miles. The work will take it is asserted, five years to complete, and will entail a cost of 200,000, 000 rubles (about $80,000,000). The canal will be furnished with electric light, and at the regulation rate of seven miles an hour, day and night, about six days will be required to traverse it. While the main object of this gigantic water way is admittedly strategic, it is calculated to exercise an important influence upon trade and commerce, in such a manner as to interest the United States. For it will enable the Russian wheat dealers to con vey their grain far more cheaply, and consequently in large quan tities to the seaports, thereby in creasing the competition with American wheat in the markets of Europe.—New York Tribune. Eastern railroads are now mak ing pretty fast time. The Lake Shore and Miehigrn Southern re cently made a fast trial trip from Chicago to Buffalo in 7 hours, 52 minutes and 20 seconds, an average, excluding stops, of a trifle over 65 miles an hour. The highest speed was made between Erie and Buffalo Creek. The 86 miles were covered at the rate of 72.9 miles per hour. Some of the persons who left Chicago at 3:30 o’clock took the New York Central’s fast train from Buffalo to New York and reached the latter city at 10 o’clock that night and at tended the theatre. This is a feat never before accomplished—to leave Chicago in the morning, travel 980 miles, and attend the theater in New York the same evening. The eastern roads are getting down to English time. The capitalist does not produce his capital. The fool workingman, who does produce it, permits him to walk off with it. To be sure there are a number of foggy trans actiod and shuffling of the cards before the point at which the fellow walks off with it is reached; but the thing lies snugly concealed in the shcffle, be assured of that. Now, friend, that shuffle—for shuf fle it is—won’t stand a moment’s investigation. It is morally and rationally delinquent.-Cowin,7 Age. Gold.

Chicago’s most prominent music house, Lyon <fe Healy, have a num ber of slightly used and second hand pianos, taken in trade, used in concerts, and in fact not brand new instruments, which they have determined to sacrifice rather than to try to make room for. These in struments comprise Square pianos at $40, $65, $90, $100 and $125. Upright pianos at $125, $140, $150, $165, $190, $200, $225, $240 and upward. Grand pianos at $200, $250, $300 and upward. Nearly all originally sold for from two to four times their present price. Almost all prominent makes (in squares and uprights) are represented, in cluding among numerous others Chickering, Knabe, Steinway, Web er, Decker, Steck, Fischer, etc. This is an opportunity that will not oc cur again, as Lyon & Healy never had so many pianos of this class before. Immediate attention is nec essary. A good plan would be to order a piano, leaving the selection to Lyon & Healy. However, they will send a list and full particulars upon application. Any piano not proving satisfactory may be return ed at their expense. Address at their new salesrooms, corner Wa bash Avenue and Adams Street, Chicago. Distance is no obstacle in taking advantage of this remark able chance to obtain a piano, for in proportion to the saving to be made, the freight charges are in significant. If you do not already know them by reputation, any banker will assure you of Lyon & Healy’s entire responsibility and record of over a third of a century for honorable dealing.

Was taken with La Grippe and tried ail the physicians for miles about, but of no avail, and was given up and told I could not live. Having Dr. King's New Discovery in my store I sent for a bottle and began its use, and from the first dose began to get better, and af ter using three bottles was up and about again. It is worth its weight in gold. We won't keep store or house without it.” Get a free trial boitle at Flaws. We Make Wheels Quality fluarantead the BEST.
