DAYTON, - - NEVADA. Saturday. June 19, 1897. ANNKAATION OF HAWAII. It is generally understood that a treaty providing for annexation of the Hawaiian Islands to the United States is now being prepared and will be sent to the Senate as soon as the tariff bill be disposed of. The matter has been kept very quiet until the preeent, when the real facts about it have leaked out. The treaty, which is being prepar ed, follows closely to the lines of the treaty negotiated by former Secretary Foster, in the days of the Harrison administration. This pro-, vided for a complete .surrender of the sovereignity over the islands of the United States; the cession of all public buildings and lands to this Government; the enactment by Con gress of a suitable Territorial form of government; the prohibition of further immigration of Chinese la borers into the Hawaiian islands; the assumption of the Hawaiian debt by the United States, and the payment of a pension to former Queen Liluoklani and of $180,000 to Princess Kaiulan. The proposed treat v will not con tain any provision l<»r pension to the late Queen or a nift of money to the Princess, but it will probably be provided that the Princess shall receive a pension out of the Terri torial revenues. This report is received with alarm in Spain, as it is believed to fore shadow the Policy of President Mc Kinley with reference to Cuba, and to indicate what the ultimate in tentions of the United States Gov ernment toward that is and may be. THE U.%THRRIKU HTOKM. Sir Henry Leppel Griffin, an authority and expert in Indian fi nances, estimates that the loss to the people of India by the closing of the mints and the depreciation of silver has been fully $470,000,000, and to this enormous and sudden loss he attributes in large measure the demoralization and consequent famine and plague which are now so rapidly killing off the people of India and threatening the world with general trade demoralization and with disease and death. Com menting on the statements made by Griffin, the Springfield Republican says: “Whatever may be one’s views as to the monetary question, there can be no doubt about the effects of the fall of silver upon the teeming mil lions of India. Boundless misery has resulted. Thousands of lives are being sacrificed on that account alone, and if one be a bimetallist even of the international sort, he must necessarily believe that for a large proportion of this suffering and starvation the demonetization policy’entered upon during the past generation by the leading Western nations is directly responsible.” The Tuscarora Times-Review has been resurrected by the Bingham Bros. It is a neat little paper, and its appearance indicates that times are improving in that section of Elko county. The paper will be independent in politics, and will deal an effective blow whenever it sees a chance for the cause of the people and the free coinage of silver. May it live long and prosper. Butler, the Australian murder er, who was caught in San Fran cisco has been found guilty and will be hanged. His case is no worse than that of Durrant, but the latter has influential and wealthy friends and Butler has not. A murder case can now be made a farce or a tragedy, all owing to the sisse of the murderer’s pocket book, or that of his friends. I.AKOR FA VT1CE It is not generally known, per haps, that the Salvation Army has, in Contra Costa county, not very far from Oakland, a 325-acre farm maintained for discharged convicts. Fifteen ex-convicts are now labor ing on this farm, and they have plowed 125 acres, have pruned fruit trees and vines and have poisoned 10,000 squirrels. It is said in the official report that the men are working faithfully. At Cotati, in Sonoma county, the Salvation Army is maintaining thirty men who are chopping wood, which will be offered for sale next year, and a farm colony is about to be started. These efforts to solve the problem of the un employed by giving permanent em ployment occupy a plane higher than the mere giving of temporary employment, like the boulevard work in San Francisco, commend able as that is in its way. A Spanish paper contains the following, which was incited by the reports that have recently been made in regard to the Cuban sitn ! ation: “Of course, the Yankees do not want truth. They only want some thing hot to Htir their courage so as to attack Spain. So far the attack has only been on paper, and with them that is as far as the buneomb Americans will dare go. We defy them, and can look on with equi nirnity over their sqnabblings, as we know full well that they dare not attack a nation like ours.” Good for you, Greaser! You hit Uncle Sam h stinger that time. Knock the chip off again. The treaty for the annexation of Hawaii has been signed by both principals, and has gone to the Senate for ratification. It is said that there is strong opposition to the treaty in the Senate, and it may not be ratified at this session. Eastern papers also assert that Japan will object to the annexation. That ought to settle the matter. Hawaii ought not to be annexed without an international agreement of some kind, wherein England can hold the top hand. And, probably, there are enough would-be English men in the Senate to block the an nexation scheme. The average profits of the Sugar Trust are about $42,000,000 a year, while the pay of employes is from $1 to $2 per day for twelve hours hard work in rooms where the tem perature is nearly 200. This is an outrage. The men are getting too much pay. Their wages should not be over 50 cents a day. If they are married men, their wives can take in washing to help out. Havemey er Searles and others should at tend to this matter at once. Such a leakage is disastrous. The wheat crop is short in France, short in Russia, almost a failure in Argentine, there is a famine in India, and the American supply is rather less than the aver age. Still, wheat sells ;in the Chi cago market for 67 cents Twenty five years ago under like conditions, it would nave been worth from $1.50 to $2. What is the matter? Is it not evident that money is even scarcer than wheat?—Ex, Under the law passed by the last legislature no voter under sixty years of age in this State can vote next year unless he has paid his poll taxes for 1897 and 1898. It would be well for all voters to bear this in mind and see that their poll tax is paid for each year. A failure to contribute $3 each year towards defraying the expenses of the State and county governments will dis franchise you in 1898. Senators Vest and Jones failed to defeat the Sugar Trust’s grab, but they succeeded in proving that it was a grab. In the debate Sen ator Aldrich’s plea that the sugar tarifl was merely intended to save the sugar interests of this country was torn to rags. It was shown that the duty was intended to pour millions into the treasury of the Trust. — Another indication of the pros perity that is upon us is the failure of 262 firms this week as against 246 for the same week last year. Mr. Isaac Horner, proprietor of the Burton House, Burton, W. V., and one of the most widely known men in the State was cured of rheu matism after three years of suffer ing. He says: “I have not suffi cient command of language to convey any idea of what I suffered, my physicians told me that nothing could be done for me and my friends were fully convinced that nothing but death would relieve me of my suffering. In June, 1894, Mr. Evens, then salesman for the Wheeling Drug Co., recommended Chamberlain's Pain Balm. At this time my foot and limb were swollen to more than double their normal size and it seemed to me my leg would burst, but soon after I began using the Pain Balm the swelling began to decrease, the pain to leave, and now consider that I am entire ly cured.

A dispatch from Funchal, Ma deira, says that Barney Barnato, the millionaire diamond king, com mitted suicide Monday by jumping overboard from the steamer on which he was returning to England from South Africa. The body was recovered. Barney Barnato went to South Africa in 1872 without a cent and in three years he was a millionaire. He became the owner of numerous diamond mines and soon his in come was rated at $25,000,000 an nually. No close estimate was ever made of Barnato’s fortune. Some months ago he was afflicted with fever, and it is possible that he committed suicide while his mind was tempo rarily deranged. The Grandest Remedy. Mr. R. B.
