LYON COUNTY TIMES.
YERINGTON, - NEVADA Saturday.January 5, 1907 THE NEW YEAR No year in the history of Nevada has opened with more promise than the year 1907. The old State has come to the front in the past few years with such strides that she has made the whole world sit up and pay attention. Our mines are now producing so much wealth that the State will be at the top of the list for gold and silver in another year or two, and in less than five years we look to see her the greatest copper producing State in the Union. Not only is Nevada thriving and becoming knowrK as a mining State, but her agricultural re sources are receiving considerable attention from investors. It is be coming known that Nevada can produce the finest potatoes, grain, garden produce, fruit, etc. We of the Mason Valley section are doubly fortunate in our locali ty. We have one of the greatest agricultural districts in the State, and both to the east and west of us are ranges of mountains that contain in abundance gold, silver and copper values. The situation is an ideal one. The development of onr mining resources can be carried on more cheaply here than elsewhere and the development of the mines makes a market for our agricultural products. If, among your other resolutions for the New Year, you have not included the one to be a booster instead of a knocker, record it now. Our district has the goods to de liver in both mines and agricul tural lands; they are no wildcat propositions and cannot be too strongly advertised to the outside world. It would be a hard matter to exaggerate our resources, so put on a pleasant face and tell the truth—which will be boosting enough. THIRD TERM LEAGUE There has been organized in Chicago what is termed the Roose velt Third Term National league. The purposes of this organization are to try and prevail upon Presi dent Roosevelt to accept the nom ination for re-election in 1908. The league officers state that it is not by any means political motives that instigates the organization, but a desire to give Roosevelt time to carry out the great re forms he has started, and which he will not have time to complete if he gives up the Presidential chair at the end of his present term. It is not conceded by all that Roqsevelt would be accepting a third term if he was to seek the chair again, as he has really only been elected once by the people to the presidency. His first term was only a piece of a term filled after the death of McKinley. However, Mr. Roosevelt has stated, quite positively, that he will not accept another term nor be a candidate for. re-election. We think he made a mistake when he made such a declaration, but mis takes are things he seldom makes. It is a fact that the Nation at the present time needs a level-headed, square, honest and aggressive man at the head of affairs. The age of graft and greed is something to be seriously contemplated, and the checking of the concentration of wealth into the hands of a few to the great detriment of the common people is a question that requires careful study and firm action after a campaign of reform has bfen mapped out. ( Whether the Third Term League can prevail upon Mr. Roosevelt to accept the nomination agaiii, or not, is a question. He may tijink he made no mistake in declaring that he would not be a candidate. In our opinion it was a mistake, and in our opinion it will be a mistake if he refuses to revoke his declaration and allow the peo ple to again place him in the pres idential chair. Such a man as Roosevelt belongs to a great ex tent to the people of the country and he should be guided by their desires and wishes. While there is other good presidential timber in the Republican ranks, Roose velt has the reins in his hands and he should be willing to guide the affairs of the country to the goal he set out to reach. He cannot reach it by the end of 1908, there fore he should accept the presi dency for another four years. Mrs. Janies Parker is confined to her home by an attack of pneumonia. NEW THIS WEEK. r,— =?
