THE SILVER STATE.
Saturday.August 28, isk®. MunHauauauanecBaumoBB 1 REPUBLICAN OFFICE HOLDEB. General Henry G. Worthington, who was elected to Congress in Nevada, in ISGi, at the first State election, recent ■ ly declared for Hancock and English, and says he intends to support them without severing his connection with *■ rhe Republican party. This display of independence on the part of General Worthington has soured the temper ®f the Virginia Enterprise, and caused it to abuse the General in unmeasured terms. Worthington was appointed ' United States Judge for a term, and subsequently was Commissioned Col lector of the Port of Charleston, South '-Carolina. The Ehterprise, in> its anger, denounces him as a carpetbagger, yet four years ago it was treason, in the * Vipinion of that paper, to call any of the Federal office holders in the South a • "carpetbagger.” The Enterprise fur ther asserts that “during his residence ijj Nevada his only business was politi cal, and that he was nominated for Con '■ gjMSsman in Nevada through one of <thoso circumstances of geography that ! 'usually occur in Nevada State Conven tions.” This implies that locality, notability, ia the test by which candidates are judged in Nevada State Conventions. As the writer of this article happened . - to be a delegate to the Convention which nominated Worthington for Con l greas, he, perliaps, knows as much about the manner in which bis nomi ' cation was procured as the editor of ' the Enterprise, There were three men placed in nomination for Congress: James A. Banks, of Humboldt; Thomas Fitch and Harry Worthington. A nom ination in those days was equivalent to* an election, and the politicians all worked- for Worthington, whom they ’ represented to be one of the ablest men and purest patriots in Nevada. Fitch did not receive a vote, and James A. Banks, as sincere a Republican and as pure a man as ever lived in the State, was defeated by eight or nine votes. ' ti the Enterprise then had said what it - now says of Worthington, it would have been denounced as a Copperhead sheet, in full sympathy with the seces sionists. That Worthington was in high favor at Washington is proved fcy the fact that he was ap pointed Judge of a Federal Court in 1 South Carolina, and afterwards given • the lucrative position of Collector of • the port of Charleston; where, as his correspondence with John J,. Patterson, v the corrupt carpet-bag United States <•!• Senator shows, lie was intrusted with • all the secrets of the party, and advised ' the politicians where to station troops to intimidate voters at the polls. Had • Worthington continued in the Repub lican fold and pronounced for Canfield, the Enterprise would denounce as rebel lies what it now says of hi3 career as a politician. As it admitted in its argu ,- ment with the Carson Appeal on the - the candidacy of Sharon, the fact of ki3 being a Republican should restrain all “truly loil” papers and speakers from exposing his short-comings. The Enterprise never charges a prominent : member of , its party with wrong-doing so long as he supports the ticket. '• A QUESTION OP VERACITY. 7 State Treasurer Crockett has not yet received a certificate of good character V from all the members of the*Board of Examiners. In the first published re 1 port the Board he was exonerated • r from ail blame for depositing State \ funds in the lleno Savings Bank, of which he wa3 Vico President, though the Board admitted that lie had made a mistake. Shortly after that report •* was made public, Attorney General Murphy, ono of the members of the Board, denied in a card that ho con curred in the report* as stated by the other, members of the Board. This de nial was followed by a card from Gov ernor Kinkoad, and Secretary of State i Babcock, most emphatically reaffirming and asserting that he, the Attorney ‘•General, did not onlj concur in the re port, but also authorized them to state *< publicly. Now the Attorney General, in a sec Ottd card, which is very wordy as well as windy, partially, admits that ho did • concur, or at least was willing to do so, with the other members of tho other Board,,in acquitting; the State Treas urer of “evil intent,” but denies that he authorized anyone to append his sig nature to the card of the Governor and Secretary of State, exonerating the State Treasurer from intent to defraud tlie State. As the preponderance of evidence, as the lawyers say. is against the Attorney General, it is useless for him to deny that he did not concur in the report of the Board as published, and the public must necessarily decide the case against him. But, aside from the question of vera city involved in the controversy, there is something else that ought to be ex plained in the Attorney General’s letter replying to the card of Governor Kin kead and Secretary Babcock. In that letter he says: I ask Mr. Crockett, in my report, how it wa3 that on tlie 14th day of June, 1880, he had, as State Treasurer, the sum of §7,047 45 in the Keno Sav ings Bank, anil yet we found in the State Treasury the amount of money called for by the Controller’s books? Has he explained? This places the Treasurer in an awk ward position. He claims that the sack of coin which he took from the Reno Bank, on the day it collapsed, belonged to the State and not to the creditors of the Bank. Now, the At torney General, one of the members of the Board of Examiners, says the Board found in the State Treasury at that time, all the money called for by the Controller’s books. If that is a fact, tlie money which the State Treas urer took from the Reno Bank could not belong to the State, anil is in reali ty a part of the assets of the broken bank. Mr. Crockett has evidently got into a very ugly predicament. If the money which he took, from the bank belonged to the State, he violated the plain letter of. the- law;, and if it did not, it belongs to the creditors of the Ehnk. TELEGRAPHIC ITEMS. The New York Heralil says- of |the Hancoek-Sherman letters published yesterday: It is worthy of observation that althongh Sherman is a Republican and Hancock a Democrat, the corres pondence shows no marked discrepancy in their views of the relation of the army to political questions, We have reason to be proud of the intelligence, candor, friendliness and fidelity to each other of the higher officers of our army; and if our politicians were equally con siderate and mutually respectful and governed by a3 high a sense of honor, wo might escape the disgusting abuse and scandals of our heated Presidential elections. The body of an unknown woman, ter ribly beaten and bruised, was found yes terday in a secluded ravine two miles north of Sidney, Ohio. A post-mortem revealed that the woman would shortly have been delivered of twins. William Curtis, a canal watchman, has been ar rested on suspicion, it being thought that the dead woman was cook on his canal boat. The place of the murder showed signs of a fierce struggle, and tile woman's clothing wa.3 torn and scattered about. Thar Wo Chung, if she enters the port of San Francisco, will have to juny tax and duties imposed by law, but this can be done under protest; and should it subsequently appjar that they were not justly exacted, then the Secretary of the Treasury will be authorized to re fund them. A steamer sailed from Hamburg, Wednesday, with $10,0(X) in specie for the United States, and $315,000 in gold arrived in New York yesterday from Europe. Mr. Sharon’s organs in the western part of the State continue to yelp at Oeneral Clarke, like hungry coyotes, for expressing his opinion as an inde pendent voter on. the political issues of the day. Instead of attempting to re futo the arguments advanced by Lien cral Clarke, they simply abuse him for expressing his sentiments. In tlioir opinion, it is iro crime for Congressmen .to accept bribes from lobbyists, but it is an unpardonable oiFense for (General Clarke or any one else to expose their rascality. mi ■>—i n ii mm ■ i n> c——m—■m—bi #1 E.
