THE SILVER STATE'
Monday....November IS. IHHO. ——an— i namiii i THt ELEflfrlOX LAW. Ex-State Treasures Schooling, .now State Senator elect from Washoe eoun ty, suggests that the Election Law be amended, so that no one shall be al lowed to vote who lias not been a citi ren of the United States for six months prior to election day. Tlus leads tlie Carson Apj>eal to suggest other amend ments to the law, which it hopes the press of the State-w ill discuss, and each member of the- Legislature will con eider. One of the amendments, which i the Appeal suggests, make it a felony fee any man to write, print or circu late, within thirty days prior to elec tion,, any pamphlet,, dodger,, hand-bill «r placard calculated to injure the ’ chances of a candidate on election day. 1 The object of this law is to prevent guerrilla politicians from stabbing-en i »iies in the dark and defeating candi dates by the circulation of libelous i ♦iatements which, as a rule, are kept ' •ut of the candidate's way until it is too late for him. t» aontrsaliet then, j This law, the AppeaLthinks, should lje so framed as not to interfere with the legitimate criticisms of candidates by *c wspapers. Another proposed amendment makes i 3 a misdemeanor to- print* “split” tick ets, as such tickets often defeat the Bomsc intention- of tlie voter, as the I ♦lector who receives a ticket headed with the name of his party, and is as- ! sured that ft is a straight one, votes it, ♦nly to discover later that he has voted ! for one or moro moil on the otAer 'ticket. While making, suggestions to arwarhl the election law, tire Ap)>eal ought to j have gone a little further, and suggest ed the enactment of a law making it a aiisdemeaiio* or a. felony to offer to j buy or sell votes. The existing law ; iclating to the purchase of votes is j tune in many essential particulars, ami | should either Vie repealed or amended, as it is of no ns# in preserving the puii ty of the ba»lot-bo:x. IBBBMMBnBBHMI THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTORS. _ | I The three Presidential Electors, fleet ed by the people of Nevada on the 2nd instant, have to meet at Carson on the first Wednesday in December, to vote for President and Vice-President of the United States. The three select one of their number to taka the vote to Wash ington. The Times-Review, whose editor is one of the electors* says it is pretty safe to bat that they w ill vote for Hancock. Though they w ill un doubtedly do so, they are at liberty to vote for w horn they please. There is only one instance on record w here a Presidential Elector voted for a candi date other than the- oae he was sup posed to favor at the time of his elec tion. That occured ia New England many yearn ago* and, although it was in escoidauc® with the intent and purpose •f the law juoviding for the election of Presidential Electors, it has never been repeated, and is not likely to be by the Nevada Elector#, when they meet in the Electoral College, at. Carson, next month. Hiram Bolton, at Colonel Hollister’s ranch, near Santa Barbara, Cal., lassood a wild horse and attempt'd to hold it Uy draw :ng the riata about a. Jive oak tree. T1a tree was rotten, and the Jiorse, pulled it down upon Boltca, •rushing the. left side of his chest, se verely injti.wg his face and head ami fracturing lwa-tbtgh and breaking the bones of his knee into fragments. Bol ton is a man of harerdean .strength, aid is still ahvo, but tber* are. little hopes of his recovery. The excitement over the failure of the two saving banks at Hackensack, >1. .I... continues. Strings of men aral women, some weeping, are aliout the doors 1 i, die savings hank. Many have lost the money they Iiavelieen years in aeciUnimilJlting. It now appears that John Jt Berry, Cashier of the Bank of HrrgenTownty, has embezzled #120,000. Wtn. M. .Johnson, who was appointed Mecoiver, is investigating th»-accounts. 1*. Jv. Burger, for many years busi ness. maiuiger for Jk»hu Jermyer, a coal operator, nfc Sorauton, I’a., was sen ttuoud to eight years and fourmoiitJib in the rcuiUxttiary, for embessling TELEGRAPHIC ITEMS. A Washington special says : The Democrats have not givert up the hope o£ capturing the naxt Hoifse of Reprt> sentatives. Already notices have been served of fourteen contests, and as Clerk Adams has the making up of tbs roll-call, these contests give great sig nificance to Springer's recent remarks in this city, ween the complexion of the next House was discussed, all he cared about was to know how Adams would stand. Tba Republican. Cong ressional Committee lias been informed, that the Democrats will contest the fol lowing districts : First and Second of Alabama. First and Second of Louisiana Third aiwl Ninth of Alissouri,. First, Second, Third and Fifth of South Caro lina, and*the Second and Sixth of Mie sissipi. 'inhere is no-reason to believe, however, that the Republicans will lose control of the House through the* contests. A meeting, of prominent. Democrats was held in New York City, Saturday night, to take action on the alleged frauds at the recent election. It was resolved to appoint Committees as fol lows : On frauds, on coercion, to re ceive and aetr upon itiformarion in regard to fraud and coercion perpetrated in the city by tlis Republicans, a commit- I tea to investigate not more than twelve election districts, In order to tliorouglt ly prepare the case for consideration by Congress, and that tlicy include in the investigation the prosecution of colored Democrats by colored Republicans, a committee on Federal Intimidation, to investigate the doings of Davenport and his men, and a committee t» the prevention of frauds in future. A party of Sioux Indians fired on twenty-live men who were going to the mouth of Musselshell river to receive provisions. One horse was Rilled and two Mounded. No men Mere injured. Reiuforceinents were sent from Font Keogh, and no later news has been re ceived. It v.aas feared that Sitting Hull’s band plight assist the hostiles. A Hurlington, Iowa, apeciui says: Miss Jennie Spencer, daughter of Rich ard Spencer, Secretary of the (las Works, committed) suicide- by Ringing to-day. Cause, mental depression.
