LYON COUNTY TIMK8.
DAYTON, - - NEVADA. Saturday. ... November 7, 1896. We have met the enemy, and are his’n. At the beginning of the silver movement and the organiza tion of silver leagues in Lyon coun ty the Times wheeled into line for the cause of the white metal and liberty. We shall fight for this cause until we are killed off by starvation or some other means. During the campaign of 1896 what we could possibly do to make the people understand that the gold power is fast welding the fetters of poverty upon the laborers and pro ducers of the country, was done. The Times has thrown no mud, as serted nothing but the truth, and is willing to adide by the result. The line of independent candid ates who defeated the Silver Party nominees are Republicans at heart, and we will patiently await to see what course they will pursue. The independent candidates who left the Silver Party to get office, met with the crushing defeat they de served. One received 88 votes in the county and the other 89. This ought to be a lesson to them. The honest men of the party were be trayed by supposed friends, and they have injnred the party greatly, but not beyond repair by any means. The State has given the Silver Ticket an overwhelming ma jority which shows that the senti ment of the people is with the par ty. Many, however, have believed that in county matters it made little difference who held office so long as they were good men. In this the Times differs and ever will. If there is to be a National and State Silver Party, there must be a Silver Party in every county in the State in the Union, and we hold that it is nothing but right that those who belong to the Silver Party should have the preference of the offices over those who are running on independent lines. The campaign is over, it is pretty positive that McKinley has won and that we are to go it on a gold standard for four years more at least Whether Nevada can exist much longer on the lines cut out is a question. There are hundreds of thousands of men in the country to day who would much prefer to shoulder arms and fight for liberty than to starve to death in the com ing four years. They are ready to secede at a moments notice, and it will be a miracle if, during the ad ministration of the next four years, there is not an outbreak of the people that will prove serious to our country. However, Nevadans must take their medicine. It is bitter, but there is no getting away from it. Down it with a gulp and buckle on your broadaxe for the fight two and four years hence. You will find there is no one who can take defeat better than the Times. It has fought its best and lost. It has fought for what it thought to be right, and which it still believes to be right, and which it believes will Borne day be proven to be right. That is all an honest sheet can do. We will be at you in 1900. _ The Sacramento Bee has done a good thing in the late election in snowing the infamous Judge Catlin under. He was the Judge who de cided that it was libelous to publish the news of the day and fined the Bee proprietors for doing the same. Catlin’s decision in the Bee case cost him several thousand votes in California, *nd he will hot have a chance to be so handy with pur chased decisions for some years to come. The Bee has given him a belt where he needed it most. It is a pretty sure thing that California has given her electoral vote to McKinley. If such is the case the merchants in the State of Nevada should pay this debt of gratitude by forming an association and buying their imports from Utah or Colorado, both of which States gave Bryan and Sewall a splendid majority. It is time to get politics down to a business proposition now. The people have stood just about as much as they can without fight I mg California cities have been built with Nevada money, and in the palmy days of silver mining in this State San Francisco and Sac ramento thrived as never before, or since. Now that our main industry is paralyzed by unfair legislation, the people of California vote to con tinue the depression in this State, and not only here but throughout the land. California never knew what hard times were until the ef fects of the demonetization of silver begun to be felt and the mines in mines in Nevada begun to shut down, and the population leave the State, and now in the great struggle that has been made to protect our selves, she goes back on us. How different with the new State of Utah, and the banner State of Colorado. They both poll a hand some majority for Bryan and Sewall. To them Nevada sends greeting, and if it were in our pow er, Denver and Salt Lake should have every dollar’s worth of trade that went out of Nevada. The Bladder man is blind to the' records of all men except those he expects favors from. He says he has referred to the Journal of 1885 and cannot find where Dr. Leavitt voted for the bill to raise the Treas urers salary of Lyon county from $600 to $1,700. Mr. Leavitt did not vote for the bill. He dodged the issue by leave of absence. He was a member of the Legislature in 1885, we guess the Bladder man will have to admit. If he was not in favor of raising the salaries of the Treasurer and Commissioners he should have been in attendance fighting the bills. The Commis sioners salaries were raised from $400 per year to $600 per year and mileage, and the Assesror wasgi^en a deputy at $5 per day so long as the Commissioners saw fit to em ploy one. Anyone who will look the Statutes and Journal of 1885 over carefully will find that our statement is correct, that Mr. Leavitt did not oppose one of these measurers. It is one thing to make an assertion and another thing to prove it if there is a ques tion raised about its truthfulness. The battle is over, and the cohorts of gold have won. But those mis take the. temper of the American people who believe that the victory is more than temporary, or that the cause of Silver has been permanent ly overthrown. In the face of money, influence, the power of wealth and the potent mastery of the Churches over millions; in the very teeth of the most shameless intimidation and coercion of Amer ican citizens that have ever dis graced our political history—a vote has been recorded for the right that is powerful even in the midst of de feat; a vote that will be a nucleus to which multitudes of other votes will adhere as the hours go by un til four years from now the cause which to-day is not lost will emerge trumphant.—Bee. Grove L. Johnson has been de feated in California for Congress man by DeVries. This is one good piece of news from the election in California. The former was a tool of the Central Pacific road and fa vored letting the corporation off without paying its just debts, or ex tending the time for an indefinite period—until those who have robbed the people of millions are dead. Senator Jones said, in one of his campaign talks, that if McKin ley was elected he believed it would be best to give the country as high a protective tariff as it wanted—the higher the better, would suit him. We do not believe in this way of doing. The Senator argued that it would demonstrate that the tariff was not what was the matter with the country. This has been dem onstrated for the past six years. Every thinking man knows that the trouble in this country is the scarcity of money, and that cannot be overcome by a tariff, because to place a tariff on imports high enough to raise the necessary reve nue would shut out the imports. The only way the silver men can make themselves felt is to see that no tariff law passes the Senate un til a free coinage law has been passed by both houses and signed by the President. A tariff law would only benefit a few wealthy manufacturers, and they would ac cumulate enough in the next four years to be able to spend another fifty or hundred millions to defeat Bryan or some other man who would spring from the people. Fight the tariff tinkerers to the last ditch is what we advocate. Chairman Faulkner, Democratic Congressional Committeeman, con ceeds the Republicans have a work ing majority in the House, but as serts the silver men control the Senate. Chairman Babcock of the Repub lican Committee claims 200 mem bers of the House surely Republi can and twenty-two in doubt. Secretary Edgerton, Populist Committeeman, makes the following claim as to Populists in the next House: Kansas 6, Nebraska 4, Cal ifornia 1, South Dakota 2, Idaho 1, North Carolina 5, Colorado 1, Ala bama 1, Minnesota 1. Making a total of 22, with a possibility of four more from California, Alabama, Ill inois and Indiana. One Republican each in Colora do, Montana, Washington, Nevada, Minnesota and Indiana will act with the Populists. Those who think the Silver Party is dead in Nevada will find it the liveliest stiff two years from now that they ever undertook to put under the sod. Neither the Republican party, the Democratic nor the Populist party will cut the least figure in any State election in Nevada until the Silver Party has accomplished its ends—the res toration of silver to its proper place as a money metal. The press correspondent who sent the news from Carson to the city papers that Bryan and Newlands had probably carried Nevada by a small majority is entitled to the medal. If Bryan has carried other States by half such a majority as Nevada gave him, he is elected by an overwhelming vote. About the first thing McKin ley will do, if he is elected, will be to issue $50,000,000 or more of bonds to pay the expenses of the campaign and reimburse those who bought votes for him. The three-year-old boy of J. A. Johnson, of Lynn Center, 111., is subject to attacks of croup. Mr. Johnson says he is satisfied that the timely use of Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy, during a severe attack, saved his little boy’s life. He is in the drug business, a member of the firm of Johnson Bros, of that place; and they handle a great many pat ent medicines for throat and lung diseases. He had all these to chose from, and skilled physicians ready to respond to his call, but selected this remedy for use in his own fam ily at a time when his child’s life was in danger, because he knew it to be superior to any other, and famous the country over for its This is the very best Smoking Tobacco made.
