THE SILVER STATE.
TbarniU).Slplrll *4. W*M». L"eJ— TBK PARI WOXOPIH.T. Nearlv all tbe newspapers in the United States are advocating the pas sage of a bill by Congress to place news piper, or at least the materials used 1ft its manufacture, on the free list. This action on the part of the papers was caused by a combination of paper man ufacturers, which resulted in an in crease of from twenty-five to forty per cent, in the ;wice of ordinary printing paper. The press is considered all powerful, yet it is extremely donbtfnl if it succeeds in getting paper on the free list. There are at least two mem bers of Congress, one named Warner Miller of New York, and the other W. A. Russell of Massachusetts, v/h» are interested in the manufacture of paper. Both are wealthy anil are in the com bination that increased the price o£ paper. These gentlemen appeared be fore the Committee on Ways and Means and advocated their own inter ests* They were not content with the influence of their wealth and positions as members of Congress, but insisted on pleading their own cause, with advan tages which the newspapers ealniot pre tend to claim. Whatever the recommen dations of the committee may be, they, as members of Congress, will, in addi tion to what they have said before tlio committee, have opportunity to speak and vote against a reduction of duty on paper, or the materials used in its man ufacture. Under these circumstances it is doubt!ul if Congress will place pa per on the free list, though possibly it may reduce the duty on soda, ash and some other ingredients used in its man ufacture.. Jenerson s Mfcmiai, citmg trom tne British Parliamentary practice, says: “ Where the private interests of a member ate concerned in a bill or ques tion, he is to withdraw. And where such an interest has appeared, his voice has been disallowed, even after a divis ibn. In a case so contrary, not ordy to the laws of decency, but to the funda mental principle of the social compact, which denies to any man to be a judge hi his own cause, it is to the honor of the House that this rule of immemorial observance should be strictly ad lie red to.” Notwithstanding this precedent, and the suggestion that for the Junior of Congress it should lie observe*!, the paper manufacturers in the House re sort to all the methods known to lobby ists to defeat a bill which concerns their private interests. llMlIEsTI.Vt; MliltliV TO SESIli.C The Elko Post, Reno Gazette, State Journal ami Carson Appeal—all Repub lican papers—are opposed to Sharon’s re J tion to the United States Senate, and in favor of having the Austin Con vention demand his resignation^ On this proposition the Gazette is out spoken. It sc vs : “ We would like to see the Republi can Convention which meets at Austin request Mr. Sharon to send in his res ignation as Senator. Pm haps, how ever, this would be asking too much of the party. If he is a candidate for re election he will contribute to the cam paign fund, which is small enough at best, and the party leaders would do nothing to drive him and his money away. The people at large can find no fault with that. If he is willing to do his snare and take his chances with other candidates, well and good, but if he goes into primaries ami tries to pack the next Legislature with his friends, there will lie a row.” It is not probable, however, that the convention will gratify the desir? of the Gazette. Storey county will be repre sented in force at Austin, and will be likely to control the action of the con vention on that proposition. The Vir ginia Enterprise, Gold Hill News and Carson Tribune, never have a word of disapproval of Sharon’s course, aud in dignantly rejiel as rebel insinuations, which no paper that is “ truly loil ” to the Virginia & Truckee Railroad, should heed, that Sharon is not a resi dent of Nevada; that for over four years of kis Senatorial term he did not occupy h» seat in the Senate over four weeks, and that during a whole session of Congress, when the silver bill was before tl<at body, he did not go to Washington at u|L TEIfttifeimC fTKVft. In pursnance of the call of George H. Shield*, the recently depose*! Chair man of the Republican State Committee of Missouri, six members of the commit tee and two proxies met Tuesday night. Mr. Shields presented an address to the j Republicans of Missouri, which he was authorised to have published. In it he severely attacks Chauncey J. Filley, present Chairman of the State Commit tee, and his partisans, and characterizes the remora! of himself as Chairman as unrepubfrean and unjust. Sheilda says because he was for Blaine, Filley packed the committee with proxies and beat him. He calls oa good Republi cans to elect delegates to the Sedalia Convention to defeat Filley aad his schemes. The members ef the com mittee who were present were generally against Grant, but will support the nominee of the National Convention. It is reported from Washington- that Senator Bailey said that the sub-com mittee of the Judiciary Committee would soon take cognizance o# his reso lution of inquiry touching the Phciffe Mail Steamship Company, and that the 1 names of persons familiar with the transaction com plained ef between it and the railroad company, and its effect on trans-continental commerce were in his possession. These persons would be requested to appear and testify, the idem being te show that toe contract was against public policy and a con spiracy against the eoaimereial public, requiring the immediate act-ion of Con gress. Among the parties mentioned were Dillon, Huntington, Keene, Gould, Sage and others. Queen Victoria, in her speech pro-! roguing Parliament yesterday, said she was induced by considerations of pub lic policy and convenience to select this period of the session for releasing Parliament from its duties, with a view to its immediate dissolution and the issue of v. rits for a general election. She tendered her warm acknowledg ments tfo Ihrliament for the zeal ami ability displayed, and especially for the manner in which the policy sf the Gov ernment has been upheld. Senator Hill and a friend have filed affidavits that Jessie Raymond is to tally unknown to Hill, has no claim on him, is attempting to extort money by annoyance and threats, anil that he (HiR) believes that* the latter may be dangerous. He asserts that she is an abandoned character, and request* the police to take action in the matter. His friend (Smalls) testified that Jessie had saiil she would have .$500 or Hill’s life, if she hung for it. The Council of Two Hundred, of the Citizens Protective Union of San Fran cisco, nominated fifteen freeholders as candidates for the charter election— wight Democrats and sevep Re pul beans. It is expected that they will be in dorsed by the Democratic and Repub lican County Committees. Should these nominees be elected, the Democrats will have tins eight on their side for once. Mr. Hayes sent the following nomi nations to the Senate yesterday: James B. Angell of Michigan, to be En voy Extraordinary and Minister Pleni potentiary to China, vise Seward, re called; John F. Swift of California and Wiliam H. Trescott ofc South Carolina to be Commissioners to China, to. nego tiate a treaty with Chfna. The Chicago Times’ Galveston special says : General Frisbie, an extensive miner in Mexico, who catae with Grant, says the General told him he hoped the Republicans would not nominate him. But, Frisbie says, Grant is a candidate in the hope of bettering biacivil recor<U The New York Herald’s Washington special says a movement is on foot to have Grant withdraw from the field. It is reported that Cameron aiul those acting with him have resolved to adopt Senator Edmunds as ther candidate. At Lawrencevilie, Pa., this morning, Sidney Green killed his wife, and, being pursued, shot himself dead. The wife had only recently returned from the West. A heavy storm prevailed in Califor nia yesterday. A hoy of seventeen married a woman of seventy at Jasper, Alabama, but his parents captured him immediately after the ceremony and banished him to a! distant school. The bride was wealthy,! ami the husband claimed to.kuow what 'ha was about*. , . I A young SaoTraneiico liUmtist n»roe*l Younger, sued a Mrs. Tippett, of tbafc city for 1918, for- professional service*. Mr. Younger charged for 114| hours* services at the rate of 88 per hour, and intimated on the witness stand that that was below his regular price. The defendant had paid $287 for th* services and offered to pay more m settle ment. It was left to the Couvt t® de cide-whether $8 an hour was an exor bitant charge for a dentist to make,, and the Court took the matter under ad visement..
