THE SILVER STATE.
■ •. i ' __ _ _._T _m j THE *417.4 RE LOCATION. .-r .' I Petitions from mining camps in nearly all parts of Nevada are being presented to Congress against the passage of the new mining bill. The most vigorous pro test yet made against the bill was from citizens of White Pine county, in this State. They argne that the enactment of the section which proposes to confine ledge owners within vertical boundary planes, will work irreparable injury to every branch of mining industry in Ne vada, incite, frauds and blackmail suits, and paralyse the energies of all indus trious citizens. They further repre sent that the requirements of the bill in regard to the manner of locating mining claims and acquiring title, will practi cally put an end to prospecting for min erals in new fields, and destroy all hopes of new discoveries, and eventu ally turn our new prosperous State into what it was previous to the discovery of the Comstock lode—a desolate waste inhabited only by a few half-starved Indians. The protests against the passage of the new bill from miners in various parts of Nevada have been presented by Congressman Daggett, who, if so disposed, ought to be able to make a telling speech against the proposed change. The trouble is, however, that the wealthy mine owners in Western Nevada are in favor of the new bill, and the Virginia Enterprise, which re flects their views, came out in a lead ing article advocating the scpiare loca tion system, when the bill was intro duced in the House of Representatives. Whether Mr. Daggett is in sympathy with the expressions of the Etrterprise, has not yet been made apparent. The fact of bis having pre aented petitions from miners in thi3 State against the bill, does not commit him against the measure. It is the bounden duty of the represent atives of the people in Congress \o pre sent petitions from their constituents, but it does not follow that their senti ments are always in accord with the opinions of the petitioners. A speech from Mr. Dagget on the subject would disclose his views, blit that speech has not yet been made. Of course he will hesitate before committing himself against any proposition which the Ter ritorial Enterprise favors, yet if he takes aides with the Enterprise he arrays himself against the miners iu every camp in the State, outside the Comstock. Under these circumstances he may deem discretion the better part of valor, and say nothing publicly for or against the new mining bill. This policy will leave him in a position to placate the opponents of the bill in out side mining districts, by informing them that he presented their protests against its passage, while at the same I time he can truthfully say to the “ Lords of the Comstock” that he said nothing against the measure. THE SILVER QCESTIO*. The silver Question, which divided parties and localities a year or two ago, is now solving itself. There is a grow ing demand for standard dollars in all parts of the country, and the Govern ment, which seems to be unable longer to maintain the prejudice which it en deavored to create against silver coins, is now adoping measures to send silver to those who desire it free of expense. This must be extrenrely humiliating to the Administration, which opposed the passage of the Silver bill, and sent it back to Congress without the Presi dent's signature, but it is a result over which Sherman and Hayes no longer have any control. The price of silver is steadily advancing in Europe, and the supply in London is not sufficient for the demand. The German Govern ment, which demonetized silver coin, also begins to sec the folly of its course, and, according to reports, is about to remonetize the debased metal. The wisdom of Congress in passing the Sil ver bill over the veto of the eight-t; - seven President and the remonstrances of the greatest living financier!?), Hon est John Sherman, who predicted that it would result in financial ruin, is now mating itself apparent even to thosfe who opposed it, and everybody, except the members of the Administration, concede that, sooner or later, silver will be restored to its former relation with * gold, and that the increasing demand for standard dollars in ail parts of the Union, must compel Sherman to aban don the project of hoarding these coins in the Treasury vaults. TKLKCiKAPHlC ITEMS. Congressman Newberry, of Michi gan, has received a private telegram from interested friends, announcing that the Wabash Railroad has leased the Great Western, of Canada, thus making another trunk line from San Francisco to New York. James F. Joy went to Europe for this purpose, to se cure a lease from the foreign stockhold ers of the Great Western, and this dis patch indicates that he has accomp lished his purpose. Newberry has also information that the Great Western will build a line from Welland to Lew iston, Canada, and then connect with the Ontario and Western Road, which was formerly known as the New York Midland, and runs from Lewiston to Oswego and New York City. This gives Jay Gould au unbroken trunk from San Francisco to New York. In the primaries in Illinois, up to the present time, more than half the dele gates to the State Convention are Blaine men. General Logan has re turned to Chicago, and it is understood will remain through the campaign to conduct Grant’s battle. The primaries in Wisconsin indicate that the delega tion will be for Sherman, and certainly solid against a third term. Washbnme and Blaine get a considerable number of votes. Hayes has approved the Army appro priation bill, and vetoed the Deficiency bill. There is a ‘ stalwart” element in the Cabinet that iias urged the veto of the appropriation bill for the army also, but the Pres dent thinks the Hurd amendment is strictly gemiain, and in-, stead of being a restriction is rather to be considered as an enlargement of the bill. It does not differ in any degree, in his mind, from the Army bill that1 was approved by him last year, and for this reason he has already attached his signature to the measure. A bill has been introduced in the House by Ellis for telegraph service be tween Boston and Washington and in termediate postotfices, for the purpose of testing the practicability of a general ; system of government postal telegraph lines, to cheapen the service, etc.* Ex- ! tentions of lines to St. Louis, Chicago, j New Orleans and other cities are to come into the plan if Congress so pro vides. Referred to postal Committee. ' Vice President Wheeler declines the j use of his name as a candidate for Con- ; gress, with a view to the possibility of his being made Speaker of the next House; and it is announced that, in case the Legislature of 1881 is Repub lican, he will be a candidate for United States Senator. To-day the commission rates of bro kers connected with the San Francisco Board wej^ raised to one dollar for each transaction under $200, and one-half of one j)er cent, for all transactions over $200. This will be the rule in the future. A Washington special says : The Blaine men are calling County Conven tions throughout Pennsylvania for the purpose of getting them to instruct their destined delegates to Chicago to jjote for Blaine, regardless of the in struction of the State Convention. Owing to Bismarck’s nervous system being much overstrained, the physic ians of his family urge his temporary retirement from State affairs, and it is expected he will take a long leave of absence. A West Point Cadet writes to tbe Newton (Mass.) Journal that the corps had raised a purse of $1,-000 to ferret out the Whittaker mystery. The offi cers are of the opinion that Whittaker’s woumfs were self-inflicted. Reports from Virginia City are to the effect that the Republicans elected the Mayor,and the Democrats the rest of the ticket at the municipal election yes terday. It is stated that the selection of Post master General Key’s successor will he postponed until after the Chicago Con vention. The express office at FUko was bu:» glarized yesterday morning, and over one hundred dollars stolen therefrom. The W. P. C., of California, have called a State Convention to meet in San Francisco May 17th to choose dele gates to the Convention of the Green* back ami Labor party, to be held at Chicago June 9th. The Convention will at the same time nominate four Congressmen.
