LYON COUNTY TIMK8.
DAYTON, - - NEVADA. 8Atf*DA*.3mm fl, 1896. MtfKiffLEY is a poor man. He has never recovered financially from the ruin of his business some years ago. This being the ease the money for his campaign will have to come from friends who have it. It is going to take millions to elect McKinley, if he can be elected at all, and what is the motive that inspires Mark Hanna and his class to furnish such a vast sum of money? They are not men who will spend such sums as will be necessary to elect McKinley for the mere love of their country. The motive for McKin ley’s election is simply a specula-, tion. Hanna and the gold bugs put up their money for McKinley’s election well knowing that with such a man in the presidential chair, placed there under such cir cumstances, there will be a chance to rob the people of the country of fifty times the amount the election will cost them. These are the kind of men who are handling the reim of government in this country to day. How different from an hun dred years ago, when the office sought the man and principle count ed before boodle. But there is a healthy stir among the people, and before the campaign is over the tactics of the gold bugs will be fully explained to the masses of voters. This is a year when Americans are going to declare their rights—they must declare them—or there will be secession of the Silver States from the Union, and eventually a rebell ion of the masses against the pluto crats that will be more bitter and terrible than a dozen wars like the late rebellion. The monied powers of this country and England must be given to understand that they cannot buy Presidents and put them in office to further their own dia bolical ends at the expense of the country. This year is the date fixed for the overthrow of the money lenders of the nineteenth century, and if there is any mistake in car rying out the program for free coin age and the freeing of the white slaves of the country, there will be another rebellion just so sure as Christ was crucified. Nkw York city owns and runs the Brooklyn bridge at a profit, paying the following wages: Engineers $4, firemen $2.87, con ductors $2.75, toll collector $3; all eight hours. The elevated railroad in the same city is a private corporation and pays the following wages: Engi neers $3.50, 12 hours; firemen $1.60 to $2.50, 9 hours; conductors $2 to $2.60, 10 hours; gatemen $1.50 to $1.80, 10 hours; ticket men $1.50, 12 hours. So with all the dead weight on one of the most corrupt city gov ernments in the world, municipal ownership and conduct of public utilities pay better wages and give the public better service than pri vate corporations. All the facts, such as the figures as to municipal light, street cars, water, etc., point to the Bame conclusion.—Labor Qa gette. The Plaindealer says that it may be Cleveland and Donghty this year for U. S. Senator and Con gressman, bat never again Jones and Ncwlands. Wbat’s the matter with Jones? He cat loose from the Republicans and joined the Populists two years ago, and has been working with them ever since, while Cleveland has not been out of the Republican fold two weeks yet, ___ Hurrah for McKinley and pro tection—to manufacturers. To hell with the wage earner. It is not absolutely necessary for the Populists and Democrats to unite in order to win. If a straight Democrat is named at Chicago and Teller nominated at St. Louis with the Populists and Silver men be hind him, the fight would result in the Democrats getting all the South ern States and the Populists and Silver men getting the Western States with a chance for two Mid dle States. This would make a dead lock in the Electorial College with McKin ley beaten. This would throw the vote into the House of Representa tives and if Teller was named for Secretary of the Treasury and a good free silver Democrat was elect ed President the resumption of free coinage would come and silver would be king. The Salt Lake Tribune still ad vises Republicans to stay with the party, and says that to go off alone and shout for silver can do no good. Nevada went off alone and shouted for silver four years ago and from that independent action has grown the great interest that has mani fested itself throughout the land on the silver question. But the silver advocates are not very much alone just now, they have in their ranks the brightest men in the na tion, and are gaining recruits daily. Indeed it looks as though the silver shouters would have a good deal more company at the polls next Fall than the gold bug Republican nominees. While talking about promising Senator Teller the Cabinet position of Secretary of the Treasury in case he is not made nominee of the combined silver forces for President, would it not be well to consider, during the campaign, who should have that position if Senator Teller is the presidential nominee? And who could there be more fit for that position than Senator Wra. M. Stewart, of Nevada? He has been the most tireless worker for free silver coinage the country ever pro duced, and it would be a fitting tribute to him to openly tender him that position in case of the election of a silver President. The true inwardness of the so called “sound money sentiment of the Republicans of the South was voiced at St. Louis by National Committeeman N. W. Cnney (col ored), of Texas, the leader of the black and-tan Republicans of the Lone Star State, who said: “If the gold men treat ns right, we’er for sound money; otherwise, we will raise-,” which means that the negro Republican demands a per centage of the billions filched from the people of the United States by the infamous gold standard. At last the gold bugs have found somebody foolish enough to credit their talk of “50-cent dollar.” A gang of ignorant negroes in Ken tucky refused to accept pay in sil ver and demanded their twages in gold or paper. It is to be hoped they will win their demand. They have as much right to gold as the holders of government coin certifi cates have, and nothing can make the claims of the gold bugs appear so clearly in their true light as this absurd enforcement of them When the sailors in Michigan and Wisconsin come to think of the fact that it was Hanna, McKinley’s manager, who disrupted their U nion and taught them an “object lesson” in reducing wages all along Lake Michigan, they will probably not be over anxious to support the gold bug this Fall. Senator Mantlr has left the Re puclican ranks. He did not bolt the convention, but now says he will support any free coinage nominee for President, on any ticket, before he will support McKinley.

Dayton, JXTevada, Ninety of the delegates to the recent A. P. A. convention in Wash ington have decided to fight McKin ley. They were not satisfied with the whitewashing the convention gave the great (?) protectionist. As this organization is somewhat of a factor in the politics of the East, it may make things interesting for the gold bug presidential nominee. Governor Altgeld, of Illinois, the naan whom the Republican pa pers have tried to make out an an archist and a fool, seems to be the idol of a good many people in that State, after all. He was this week renominated for Governor by ac clamation, and his election is prac tically conceded by fifty thousand majority. The tariff on imports may be raised to the extent that it will shut out imports altogether and it will not bring revenue enough to carry on the government under a single gold standard policy. It will only increase the price to the farmers for manufactured articles, while it re duces the price he must sell his products for. There is not a true blue silver paper published daily in San Fran cisco. It seems to us that there is a field there for a daily of this kind; one that is independent enough to keep out of the blackmailing style adopted for support by all the big dailies now published there. McKinley ought not to get one hundred votes in the State of Neva da. ^_____ For y*nr Protection.—Catarrh “Cnn*” or Tonics for Catarrh in liquid form to be taken internally, usually contain either Mercury or Iodide of Potassa, or both, which are injur ious if too long taken. Catarrh is a local, not a blood disease, caused by sudden change to cold or damp weather. It starts in the nasal passages, affecting eyes, ears and throat. Cold in the head causes excessive flow of mucus, and, if repeatedly neglected, the re sults of catarrh will follow; severe pain in the head, a roaring sound in the ears, bad breath, and oftentimes am offensive dis charge. The remedy should be quickto allay inflammation and heal the membrane. Ely’s Cream Bahn is the acknowledged cure lor these troubles and eon tains no mercury nor any injurious drug. Price, 60 cents. Aboard (Ship. Sea voyages are usually deemed promotive of health. So they are In most cases. But it may well be doubted if thd shaking up aboard ship, which people of very fragile constitution and weak nerves get. is not prejudicial if its effects are not averted or nullified by a medici nal safeguard. The best, if we are to believe the testimony of ocean travelers, whether they go abroad for health, pleasure or business, is Hostetter’s Stomach Bitters. Invalids, com mercial travelers, sea captains and yachtmen concur in recommending this fine defensive tonic. So do emigrants to the frontier, the in habitants of malarious regions; and all who are exposed to hardship or rigors of climate. For malarial, rheumatic or kidney trouble, nervousness, dyspepsia, liver complaint and constipation it is eminently efficacious, and commended by the medical fraternity far and near. NEW THIS WEEK.
