LYON COUNTY TIMES.
DAYTON, - - NEVADA. Saturday. September 25, 1897. PAY YOI'ft POLL TAX. The Tuscarora Times-Review has discovered a nigger in the fence in the poll tax law that was passed at the last session of the Legislature. The Times called attention to this law some months ago. It is obnox ious, and will work a hardship on many a voter out of work in this State, but it is, evidently, constitu tional, and therefore there is noth ing to do but live up to it until it is repealed. In commenting on the law the Times-Review says: “If a doubt exists in the minds of any of our readers as to the motives which actuated its enact ment, they should certainly be dis pelled by a careful persual of Sec tions 2 and 3. Of course, it might be claimed that this provision was necessary in order to conform to the statute providing for the purity of elections, but the fact remains that if a poor devil happens to be out of a job (a common occurrence in these days during the prevalence of the McKinley wave) he is debarred from paying his poll tax or even borrowing the amount necessary to entitle him to vote from a citizen who may have a personal interest in obtaining for him the right of suffrage. Another instance of the tendency of the times to centralize the franchise in the hands of those who are in the possession of fixed incomes. It plainly shows, to our notion, that the bill was not intro duced for any philanthropic motive of increasing the State revenue, but for the more practical one of controlling the State politics through the inability of some un fortunates to produce the necessary $6. It will be noticed that the law specifically requires the production of “two” receipts where the appli cant for registration has been a res ident of the State for a period of six months in the preceding year. No provision is made for those who have paid the tax in another State, but it is presumable that on pro ducing a receipt registration could not be denied them. 'Phe matter is one of great im portance to the adherants of bimet allism in this State, as it is among them the great decrease will occur, and the law is well calculated to confuse and reduce our voting pop ulation to injury of the silver cause in the State.” The survey of the boundary line between Nevada and California, be gun in 1893 on an appropriation of $300,000 seoured by Representative Carninetti, of California, is nearly completed. About $2,000 of the fund remains, which is being de voted to the correction of a few mistakes in triangulation work. Surveyors are now on Freehill’s Peak, near Bijou, Lake Tahoe, and also in the Como mountains. The new line varies but little from the Von Schmidt line of 1873, Nevada losing a little near Tahoe and gain ing slightly at other points. This is a disappointment to Californians, who, when they secured the appro priation, hoped that the new sur vey would leave all of Lake Tohoe in California. Uncle Sam is slicking up his war vessels and putting the navy in training, and threatens to give Spain a dressing down unless she does thus and so by a certain time. Nobody seems to know exactly what the conditions are, but the Coban situation is what calls for the manifesto. It is to be hoped Uncle is not making a bluff, and that if he is he will get his hand called. A few days ago all the evidence in the Lutgert case, in Chicago, was against the man who is accused of boiling his wife up in a sausage factory. The testimony for the de fense, however, is making a change in the public sentiment. Witnesses for the defense have shown that they saw Mrs. Lutgert since the date she is claimed to have been murdered. Other witnesses have flatly contradicted the testimony for the State, and il has been shown that policemen and detectives have been trying to tamper with wit nesses for the defendant. Lutgert has not told his story yet, but will do so in a day or two. It is not improbable that he will be cleared. The State will not secure a verdict, at any rate. We would like to ask some of the international bimetallists if, as they contend, we must secure the assent of the nations of the world to enjoy the advantages of free sil ver coinage and a larger circulation, why the same contention would not hold good in regard to the tariff? The Dingley bill strikes a blow at every nation with which we trade. Why enjoy the benefits of protect ion if it hurts foreign nations. It is poppycock to sav that we are big and strong enough to legislate independently on the tariff, which virtually affects the trade of all na tions, but that we are too small and weak to establish an independent financial system which is demanded by the people.—Silver Knight. Japan has been landing soldiers dressed in civilian clothes on the Hawaiian Islands. Not many have been landed, but there are about 30,000 Japs in the Islands now, and a few, skilled in war tactics, could organize a pretty fair army in a short time. The U. S. has sent a warship to Honolula to be on guard, and there ia liable to be music should it transpire that there is any truth in the report that the Japan ese intend to take the Islands. The English bankers are howl ing like wolves because that gov ernment proposes to keep a fifth of the reserve fund in the bank of England in silver. They are aided by the press of England, and may possibly create such a clatter that the government will lose its head and postpone adopting the new plan. It must be remembered, however, the Parliament, by a con siderable majority has declared in favor of bimetallism. It was predicted that the Ding ley tariff hill would bring in enough revenue in thirty days after its pas sage to pay the running expenses of the government. It is over two months now since the law went in to force and the indications are very favorable for another bond issue. Coi.. James D. Brady, a Virginia Republican, has the following to say of last year’s fight: “We went into the fight backed by the pow erful influence exerted by the rail roads, express and insurance corpo rations and bankers.” The goldites are continually howling that they want every dol lar as good as another dollar. They know the law prevents making any other than a gold dollar as good as a gold dollar. Butcher Weyler asks for four months more to pacify Cuba. He could not accomplish the job if he was given four years. Remember that nearly all dis eases arise from impure blood, there fore it should be kept in a healthy condition.
