Don't suffer longer. Write F. W. WILLIAMS^ 400 Manhattan Ave., New York. GEO. S. NIXON, SENATOR. An Opinion of His Candidacy by a Former School-Mate* The following was printed in a recent issue of the Stockton Mail. It is a part of the regular weekly letter published in that paper front the pen of L. Claire Davis, one of the most brilliant newspa per writers in California. As it happens, she was a childhood friend of Hon. George S. Nixon, and it is the struggle of a young man to success which she writes of ; a brief pen-picture of the way the right kind of men get on in this country. The writer says: "I notice that the Nevada Re publicans have done themselves proud by nominating for United States Senator my old friend Geo. S. Nixon, a banker of Wiunemuc ca. In the halcyon days of youth we both dwelt in Placer county, where Mr. Nixon was born, and though we didn’t exactly make mud pies together, we swung on the same garden gate, roamed over the Placer hills gathering wild flowers and told each other our dreams. The dreams of youth are long, long dreams, but I doubt it Mr. Nixon’s longest dream at that time encompassed anything so faraway as the United States Senatorship. For George was not a banker then, nor a stockman, nor a capitalist, nor any of the things the San Francisco papers call him when, as often happens, he drops into the city for a few days. His capi tal was all contained inside a dome that even then supported a good sized hat. He was serving an ap prenticeship in the railroad station at Newcastle under good and jolly Dan Rice, sitting in the telegraph office late of nights and wonder ing how long it would be before the company would give him a station of his own. At last the summons came. He was to report for duty at Browns, Nevada. And Browns looked a good deal bigger in the distance to George then than Washington. D. C., looks to the Hon. Geo. S. Nix on now, I’m very sure. I don’t know what Browns is like now, but at that time George Nixon, the new agent and operator, but rather homesick boy, described it as ‘containing the railroad station and two hundred million hungry gnats.’ Later he was transferred to I Humboldt, and eventually was offered a position in the First Na-j tional Bank at Reno. Then he was sent to establish a bank at Winnemucca, where he has re sided ever since, and where he became the editor and owner of the Silver State. Having a shrewd business head and no bad habits, he saved his money, invested it judiciously, was fortunate in near ly everything he touched, includ ing mines, stock raising, etc., and that’s how he earned the various titles which are tacked after his name. As a youth he was scrupulously honest and held the finest ideals.; He has brains and he has used ! them freely, not only for himself, but for Nevada. His success has been almost phenominal, but he isj in every sense a man of the peo ple, who has earned every good, thing that has come to him by his own efforts. Here’s hoping the people of Nevada may put the crowning touch to his well-earned honors by sending him to the United States Senate. If they do their interests will be i looked after by '<ne of the brain iest and shrewdest men of the West, and one who knows the needs as a wise mother knows the j needs of her child. Nevada will! please remember that California ‘horned’ her brightest man and feels an interest in his success ^ that is not bound by any political lines or party alliances. ’Rah for j Nixon! He’s all right.” | MORE ABOUT CUT-OFF. Southern Pacific Engineer Reports Favorably on the Proposition* Mr. B. F. Pope, the Southern Pacific civil engineer who week before last visited certain sections of Churchill and Lyon counties in the interest of his company, for the purpose of reporting on the feasibility of a cut-off road from Hazen to some point on the C. & C. road, returned last week to San Francisco to report to his superior officers. Mr. Pope visited the two passes directly south of Fallon, in Chur-, chill county, and remarked that j either could be pussed through with little or no difficulty. He was surprised, he remarked, at their elevation being not near so high as a glance would indicate. Should either of these passes be used, Shurz would probably be the connecting point on the C. & C., which place is 54 miles from Hazen. The engineer did not talk much, but inferred that he would report favorably on the cut-off. Howev er, it is supposed that such an un dertaking is to be a realization of the future, the data being ob tained for future reference and not for immediate use.—Churchill Standard. In connection with this matter the Tonopah Sun says that be cause a sampling works is to be built at the Mound House is no reason why the Hazen cut-off will not be built. The Sun says the Tonopah railroad, nor any other narrow gauge line, will be ade quate to handle a quarter of the ore that will be offered for ship ment from the southern country, and that even if the so-called I Clark road tapped that section and the C. & C. is extended to Mojave there will be plenty to do for all the roads.

The Republican party of Nevada, in State Con vention assembled, reaffirms its adherence to the principles of Republicanism as expressed in the national platform and wrought into the govern ment of the nation from Abraham Lincoln to Theodore Roosevelt. The history of republican ism is the party's mightiest platform. Endorsing the nominees of the national convention, we af firm that no man in public or private life in this country is more fitted in honesty, daring, uncom promising independence, steadfast in what he believes to be right and sound judgment to guide the American people in the fulfillment of their destiny the next foUr years than Theodore Roose velt, the statesman in peace, the hero in war. the westerner always, and the Republican nominee for President of the United States. We respectfully suggest to the voters oi Neva da that Alton Brooks Parker is too closely allied with the selfish corporate and monied institutions of Wall street and the lawless and predatory mo nopolistic trusts of the country to qualify him for the discharge of the duties of the office for which the Democratic party of the United States has selected him, and that no language which we can frame more aptly illustrates his disqualifications than that freely and publicly employed by W. J. Bryan, W. R. Hearst and other leading men con spicuously prominent in the environment of the Democratic presidential nominee were subject to free and uutrammeled discussion. NATIONAL IRRIGATION. We congratulate the people of the State of Ne vada upon the passage of the national irrigation law which will ultimately reclaim tlje arid lands of the West, and which will within a few years transform the desert wastes of Nevada into fruit ful homesteads. We assert that the attempt to steal the credit of this great act for one man is a travesty on fact and justice. To thousands of western citizens who have agitated this subject, to the western Senators and Congressmen who for twenty-five years have persistently urged and fought for irrigation legislation, and to the engi neers who have measured the western streams which thread the mountains and deserts to learn the possibilities of storage and reclamation we give due and generous credit and the fullness of our gratitude. But above all we declare that the ringing and insistent recommendation of Theo dore Roosevelt that Congress consider this sub ject w’as responsible for the crystalization of all theories and plans into the bill known as the National Irrigation Law. which was framed and agreed to by all western Senators and Congress men, and introduced simultaneously in the Senate and House, and which would have failed in the House had not Theodore Roosevelt finally brought his great influence to bear to secure its jiassage. ISTHMIAN CANAL. We rejoice in the acquirement by the United States of sufficient isthmian territory upon which to excavate, construct and operate a commercial canal between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans en tirely regulated and controlled by the govern ment of the United States, and which will greatly promote the industrial development of all sec- I tions of the Pacific Coast, and we especially re gret that Senator Francis G. Newlands so far for got the substantial interests of the State of Neva da as to interpose his vote in the Senate of the United States against the ratification of the treaty between the United States and the Republic of Panama in a vain attempt to interdict the build ing of such canal. UNITED STATES SENATORSHIP. We congratulate the people of Nevada upon the awakening of her prosperity in field and mine, and that the hour is struck which closes a quar ter of a century of State depression. That the dawn has begun of a new era wherein this com monwealth is destined to take high rank in agri culture. the industries and mining. New leaders are called for to represent in Congress this new spirit of State development. For the Senate of the United States the Republican party presents the name of Hon. George S. Nixon, as an able, true and loyal citizen worthy of such choice, fa miliar with and interested in the varied indus tries of our State, aud who is the first candidate for that supreme office presented by a Nevada convention in the past twenty years who is a bona fide resident and citizen of Nevada, and pledges the efforts of the Republican party to use all hon orable means, and the votes of its members in the State Legislature, to secure his election. CAPITAL AND LABOR. We submit the labor record of the Republican party against the professions of Democracy. Re publicanism has built up a tariff wall about this country' which gives the American markets to the products of American labor. It has in every State where in power enacted legislation favoring shorter hours and sanitary conditions for labor, prohibited child labor, aud passed stringent laws for the safeguarding of the life and limb of em ployes. It has, under Theodore Roosevelt, as in the coal strike, substituted arbitration for the* bullet and bayouet of the last Democratic admin istration iu its settlemint of the Pullman strike Promising little, performing much, it has been the true and tried friend of both capital and lu bor, whom it holds as equal and concordant parts of the nation’s industrial economy. The Repub lican party will not support capital in oppression nor labor in violence. It recognizes organized labor as the unity of industrial action, striving to secure a more equitable distribution of the fruits of industry. It is the trusted ally of both capital and labor; for capital in the things which are esential to the successful government of enter prises and with labor in its crusade for reasonable hours at the highest wages consistent with the successful conduct of business. In this State it favors eight hours labor upon all public works and as the legal work day in mines, quartz mills and smelters, and will uphold legislation giving it proper and equitable force and effect. STATE INSTITUTIONS. We favor the economic conduct of the State government, the generous treatment of the or phan wards of the State aud the humane care of the insane. We are justly proud of our public school system and the State University and will favor all reasonable propositions calculated to im prove their efficiency and usefulness. INVITATION TO SILVER REPUBLICANS. Recognizing the fact that many of the most pat riotic and progressive citizens of the State of Nevada have for several years past cast their bal lots against the Republican ticket because of their disbelief in the financial views of the national Republican party, although being in accord with it upon all other principles of party policy, we now, in view of the fact that there is no issue be tween the national parties upou the subject of finance, cordially invite all such fellow citizens to renew their political fellowship with us and to share with us in the glories of our certain victory at the coming general election.
