M0H7E COUNTY MINER-

Blaine and Victory.
- "With James Ch Blaine as their
standard bearer the Republican party
cannot fail to win this fall.
The majority report of the rfenale
Elections Couimittoe declares that
the Danville riots were premeditated
by the Democrats.
The fact that hoisting machinery
has been placed in position on three
different mines in this district during
the last two weeks speaks well of
itself. The output of each of these
mines will be trebled from now on.
If the Board of Supervisors had
seen'nt in their wisdom to allow the
bills presented last Wednesday be-
" 'tween four and five thousand dollars
would have been placed in circula
. -tion in this town. This is-noi a very
large sum it is true, but it is large
enough to pay many a debt and cause
many a man to sleep easier m conso
John K. Lynch, who was chosen
temporary chairman of the National
Republican Convention .at Ohicapo
last Tuesday, is an intelligent colon -d
delegate from Mississippi. He has
been m Congress, but was defeated
at the last election only 700 in a poil
of 13.5000. by Yan Eaton. The dis
trict is known as the Sixth Congres
sional. There are more men working in
"Wallapai District at the present time
than at any time in ten years past.
. Tne shipments of ore are increasing
every month and we may reasonably
expect in a few weeks that they will
reach 103 carloads per month or
more. And all this is being done on
the merits of our mines, and not by
tho aid of outsidv capital.
As wiil b seen by the dispatches
James G. Blaine of Maine has receiv
ed tho nomination for President on
the fourth ballot. His nomination
coomc tn lmvfi been enected by a
combination of his own and Logan'
partisans and the defection of som
of Arthur's ad'i-j rents irom tne
Southern States. Whether this will
result in Login receiving tho second
place on the ticKot remaius to be
shown. We still hold to the opinion
that we havo maintained for months
that tho names of Blaine and Lin
coin will head the Republican tickets
If a little
of th3 enterprise and
has characterized the
management of the L-entral ana
Southern Pacific railroads was infused
into the management of the Atlantic
& Pacific, the result would bo highly
beneficial not only to those who have
business with the road but to the
company itself. Tho .raie in the
lorado river would have been
Sreseen and the loss of the bridge
Needles fnlly provided fi
i anv other railroad mau
the world. We hazard
i-Sori that if the bridge over the'
Colorado had been under the control
of the S-mlhern Pacific road that th
latter would have had a folly equipped
steam ferry in active operation in
less than 4J hours after it was de
stroyed, and that passenger and
freight business would not be inter
rupted more than that time. Erom
present appearances it looks very
much as if there would be very little
through business done on the Atlan
tic and Pacific read until next Sep
tember, unless some other roaa takes
pity on the management and gives
them a point or two.
The action of tho Board of Super
visors in refusing to allow the bills
presented to them at the special
meeting last Tuesday has been the
cause of much complaint and criti
cisin. The meeting was called for
the express purpose of considering
such bills as should be presented,and
yet out of some thirty or forty bills
presented the Board allowed but
four. One of those four was for
money advanced by Mr. Krider to
pay freight on county stationery,
and in order to get that allowed Mr.
Krider threatened to sell the. goods
to other parties if his bill was no-.
allowed. Another bill was that ol
the Sheriff, who positively refused
to pay out any more of his own pn
vate money for county purposes, and
considering that the county owed
him about 2700 no one can blame
him. The other two bills, for Dis
trict Attorney's fees, and repairs to
the Court House, were allowed for
no particular reason, only tho Board
took a notion to allow them and did
so. The rest of tlie bills were laid
over till the July meeting. Now
there are other officials who have
just as much riirbt to havo their bills
allowed as tho District attorney and
other people who are creditors of the
county and have just as much rigbt
to have their claims audited as thp
individual who patched up the (Jourt
House chimneys. This whole bnsi
ness savors too much of favoritism to
some and malice to others. The
creditors of the county have the
right to demand that their bills should
bo audited and allowed when the
Supervisors call a meeting for that
purpose, but our present Supervisors
ara running matters to suit them
selves and not the public. However,
the public will have something to say
about it nest November.

New York, J une 2. A Star cable
from London says: It is rumored
th;tt another explosion on a much
larger scale is threatened by the dy
namiters, and that the shipping will
be the next to anffer. The rumor
which has undoubtedly been set
afloat for a purpose, declares that the
coming danger will cost England
3,000,000 sterling. It is appre-
uenaea tnat an attempt to oiow uo
some war vessels, specially marked
for destruction, is about to be made.
In the present excited state of the
public mind the slightest attempt at
further violence would precipitate
such a riot as has never been wit
nessd in the history of London.
T'jere is already talk of vigilance
committees being formed.
