DAILY SILVER STATE.
Wednesday.February *1. 187 7
TIIE COMPHOniSE IIILL.
The bill framed by the Committee of
Ways and Means ot the State .senate
to amend au Act providing for the tax
ation of the net proceeds of mines, is
creating a stir at the State capital. It
was framed.in accordanoe with terms
agreed upon iu a conference of Com
stock mine owners and members of the
committee, and is understood to be
satisfactory’^) the former. The mans
gers of the bouanz i rniues have refused
to comply with the provisions of the
existing law taxing the net proceeds of
mines, and are now in arrears for taxes
to the amount of $300,000 and evince
a determination to carry the matter to
the United States Supreme Court.
Meantime, they have agreed iu the
event of the passage of the Compro
mise Bill, to pay all arrearages of tax
in accordance with its provisions.
The question now forth© Legislature
to determine is whether it is for the
best interests of the State to pass the
Compromise Bill and relieve the strain
upon the treasury by accepting the tax
due according to its j revisions, and
eud an expensive law suit; or let the
present law remain iu force and appro
priata $12,000 for the expenses of the
law-suit, and run the chances of the
law being sustained by the courts ?
This is a very perplexing question
to the newly elected members
of the Legislature who stood upon
platforms opposed to the repaid of the
bullion tux law. Under the circum
stances, however, they cannot be h*-ld
to the strict letter of purty platforms,
which, iu the light of recent events
might result iu bankrupting the State,
as the bonanza men have the means
and evince the determination to fight
the tax to the courts cflast resort, and
there may be something in the {lea
that as the ti le to the bonanza mines,
which are not patented, is iu tl:e
United Stab s, the State of Nevada has
no cause of action.
COUNTING TUB VOTE*.
The Joint Convention of the Senate
aud House of Representatives reached
Oregon to-day in counting the electoral
vote. Some objections were made to
the vote of R. M. Daggett, Presi
dential elector from Nevada, but they
were withdrawn ami the three votes <>t j
this State counted for ILiyes and i
Wheeler. As there are two sets of |
returns from Oregon that State goes '
to the Commission. It is hot expected
that Cronin’s vote from that State wiP '
be counted for Tilden, but a fight wi J
be made against eouuting the vote o!
Watts, who was constitutionally iu
e’igible for tho position. The most
that Democrats can expect, now that
the commission is known to be so
strongly partisan that it will not iu
quirs into the legality of the elections
in the disputed States, is the throwing
out of Watts’ vote upon the ground of
his constitutional ineligibility, and
this, in view of the decisions of the
commission is more than can reason
ably be expected. In the event of
only two votes being counted fiom
Oregon there would bo a tie between
Tilden and Hayes, which would throw
the election of President into the
House and Vico President into the
Senate, and would result in the choice
of Tilden for President and Wheeler
oi Vice President
