LYON COUNTY TIMES.
YERINGTON. - NEVADA Saturday.March 4, 1905. NO COMPROMISE. The Times has been informed that all negotiations for a com promise between the plaintiffs and defendants in the Miller & Lux water suit are off, and the only way the matter can now be settled is through the courts. We are sorry to chronicle this news, as it will mean some years of litigation, and in the end no more water. However, it must be remembered that over 95 per cent, of the water owners have signed a peti tion agreeing to turn their water rights over to the government it the govermernment would take hold of the storage proposition in the Walker River basin. It is evident that the visit of Chief Engineer Taylor, to Washington has resnlted in orders to have something done in this section, as there passed through Yerington this week a crew of government surveyors on their way to Alkali Lake, in Antelope Valley. Their object is to survey that section and make an accurate estimate of what can be done in the way of storing water there and getting it back into the river. Reports say that another crew of surveyors will soon begin measuring the land in this valley and Smith Val ley under irrigation, and as soon as this work is done and the water owners deed their rights to Uncle Sam, active construction work will begin. Whether this work will be on a scale large enough to make a complete system for the two vallies, or only for temporary relief is not yet known, but it is very probable that when the proposition is once under way it will not be abandoned until such a system has been completed as will irrigate every acre of land in both vallies. Just what is going to become of the lawsuit is hard to tell, but when the government takes hold of an enterprise it gen erally brushes all obstacles out of the way to a successful termina tion of its ends. With all the irrigated land measured, so that the government may know just how much water each land owner is entitled to after a storage sys tem is completed, and the agree ment of over 95 per cent, of the the land owners to turn over to the government their water rights ful filled, we fail to see where there is much ground for a suit to stand on. It may be just possible that the parties at law may find that they have little to contest for when Uncle Sam takes hold of the irri gation of the Walker River basin, and that no compromise will be necessary. THE HAZEN LYNCHING. The lynching of the man Wood, at Hazen, the first of this week, was a deplorable affair. It is true that the people of that section have been long suffering. A score or more of hold-ups, rob beries and attempts to murder have occurred in that vacinity in in the past few months, and in but one or two cases have the guilty parties been captured and made to pay the penalty of their crimes. The law has been so lightly enforced, and such meager attempts made to meet out justice to the criminal element in that section, that the people became tired, and many fearful tor the lives of members of their families, have arisen and taken the law into their own hands. There is no doubt that the lynching of Wood will have a salutary effect on the tough element in that neighborhood. While the act of the lynchers will leave a black mark on the State of Nevada, the spot would become larger and darker if thugism was allawed to run rampant. All the trouble has come from the fact that a sufficient number of officers have not been employed to keep strict order and curtail lawlessness. We are not an advocate of lynching, but it will occur in many parts of this State when the influx of tough characters begins, if each county does not take measures to thoroughly police every camp where railroad or irrigation work shall be carried on. The Backbone of America. In an editorial of one of the great dailies of New York a short time ago, the question of appro priaiions for army and navy im provements was exliausively dealt with. In the course of its preamble, the term “backbone of America” was applied to the great forces for the country’s protection and prestige. Curiously enough the J. Stevens Arms and Tool Company, of Chi copee Falls, Mass, (manufacturers of the famous Stevens rifles and shotguns) have taken issue as to the truth of this application. They maintain that the Army and Navy are more the outgroth of "the backbone of the country” rather than the backbone itself— that we must go a little further back; back to America’s youngest sons—the strong, manly out-door boys who have been taught the use of rifles and shotguns in the open country and on the farm. This expression of opinion is quite in line with the educational movement inaugurated some years ago by these people and since carried on by them throughout the country. It must be admitted by every reasoning person that the arguments advanced are sound, to the effect that the ownership of a gun develops a boy’s manly qualities, gives him a clear eye, a steady hand, cool nerve and judgment. The J. Stevens Arms and Tool Company, we understand, have recently compiled an elaborate 140-page book containing much interesting information relative to this fascinating out-door sport, which they will send free to any one sending their name and four cents in stamps to cover cost of mailing.
