Senator Hearst says that way down in
his inner conscience he is a free-trader,
but lie wants from thirty to forty years
to prepare for free trade. In this respect
Mr. Hearst is not unlike a great many
who call themselves protectionists. They
are protectionists for the time being.
They don't know what they will be thirty
or forty years hence. The conditions
which forbid free trade now may exist
then and they may not. If the time ever
comes when the United States by the
superior intelligence of her workingmen,
the perfection of her machinery, the
cheapness of her food and the abundance
of capital, can manufacture the staple
articles of commerce as cheaply as any
other nation, without reducing her stan
dard of wages, she may then venture
upou free trade. That time may come
within the forty years that Mr. Hearst
wants to get ready for free trade in, and
it may not come for a longer period, it
certainly is not with us now There aie
a great many ideas which are lovely as
theories. Universal peace is one of them.
Free trade is another. The common
brotherhood of man is another. But the
element of selfishness must be eliminated
from man before these theories can be
reduced to practice. The common bro
therhood of man requires us to share our
advantage with the less favored people
of other lands. The enlightened selfish
ness which inspires a man 10 care for his
own, to build up his own home and hold
it against the world, to accumulate the j
means which gives position iu society j
and the comforts and refinements of life,
inspires him to look out first for his own
country, and for others afterward. The
protection policy which preserves our
markets for our own workingmen by
legislation is based upon the same prin
ciple aa that which surrounds one's own
home with comforts which everybody
does not possess. There is, of course, a
true line between improvidence and ac
tual selfishness. No one who has any
thing is expected to divide his last dollar
with those who have nothing. Neither j
is the man who has accumulated wealth !
justified in withholding all of it from the |
less fortunate. But in applying a proper j
degree of selfishness to the public policy, j
the highest civilization justifies each na- j
tion iu doing the best it can for itself i
within its own territory. An abuse of
power, such as intimidation or invasion,
is quite another thing.—S. F. Call.
Representative Bland, of Missouri, who
framed and introduced the Standard Dol
lar act, is delighted at the prospect of
continued and unrestricted coinage of
silver dollars. He says the anti-silver
men show good judgment in announcing
that they will make no attempt during
the session of Congress to suspend the
coinage of silver.
Meantime it is telegraphed that the
l’resident iu his message will ask Con
gress to report the aet making the coin
age of standard dollars compulsory, and
recommend instead that discretionary
powers regarding coinage be given the
Secretary of the Treasury.
The Secretary of the Iuterior has ren
dered a decision in the case of the South
ern Pacific Railroad Company upon which
the rule has been issued to show cause
why certain lands adjacent to, and co
terminous with the unpeopled portion of
the main line of the Atlantic and Pacific,
which is intersected by the line of the
Southern Pacific Company, should not be
restored to the public domain.
The House organized on the 6th inst.
by tlie election of Carlisle as Speaker.
In his address he dwelt with much stress
on the imperative necessity of such a
moderate and reasonable reduction of the
taritf as would guarantee laboring people
against the effect of financial depression
and at the same time not deprive men of
any part of the just rewards of their toil.
In a recent article Ingcraoll said: “I
have said a thousand times, and I say
again, that we do not know, we cannot
say, whether death is a wall or a door;
the beginning or the end; the spreading
of pinnious to soar, or the folding forever
of wings; the riso or the set of a sun, or
an endless life that brings rapture and
love to every one.”
The Secretary of the committee in
charge of the movement, to have the next
National Democratic Convention held in
San Francisco, has reported that $20,000
has already been pledged for the purpose,
and that but littlo effort has been neces
sary to raise the full amount required to
pay all of the expenses of the convention.
It is stated that a special message will
in due time be sent to Congress by the
President on the indebtedness of the Pa
cific railroads, and that nothing will be
definitely known of the report of the In
vestigating Commission until that mes
sage is sent to Congress.
The President has sent the following
appointments to the Senate: Lucius (J.
C. Lamar, to be Associate Justice of the
Supreme Court of the United States; W.
F. Vilas, to be Secretary of the Interior;
I»on XL Dickinson, to be Postmaster
The Secretary of the Treasury has
transmitted to Congress estimates of the
appropriations required for the fiscal year
ending June 30, 1889. The total amount
estimated as required for all the expenses
of the government is $326,530,793.
Herr Most, the Anarchist, has been
sentenced to one year's imprisonment in
the penitentiary at Blackwell’s Island,
New York. This is his second term in
that reformatory.
Tho President’s message contains6,000
words, and is devoted solely to a discus
sion of the tariff question.
The New York Suu calls attention to
the pitiable condition of 40,000 working
i women iu New York City. It says they
work fifteen hoars a day and then hardly
earn enough to make au honest living.
The Salt Lake Tribune says we suspect
this is true. There have been this year
two hundred thousand women from for
eign lands, turned adrift iu New York
City, and it is in the very nature of
things that many have remained there,
and mingling with the poor already there,
the condition of thousands must be piti
able in the extreme. But New York
should take up and solve that problem
without assistance. There are forty
thousand men in that city that in busi
ness have this year cleared from $5,000
to $1,000,000 eaoh. A wise administra
tion of affairs would make each of these
forty thousand successful men support
one of these unsuccessful women until
she can provide for herself, A woman is
a good deal like a man in this respect.
Unless from childhood she is trained to
some useful employment, she seldom tits
herself for one after reaching maturity.
Knowing this, the City of New Y’ork
should look to its wards of both sexes.
The children should be rescued from the
slums and taught useful employments.
those forty thousand women could all
obtain employment as cooks aud house
keepers, if they were competent to fill
the places. If they have grown up in
New York and are not competent, then
the city has been neglecting its duty, aud
the rich men of the city have been neg
lecting to keep up the insurance on the
property which they propose to leave to
their children, because these women will
many of them become mothers, and there
is not much hope for children born of
such mothers. Crime and Despair arc
parents that do not produce children that
eau be trusted. There must be a read
justment of taxation. It must be under
stood that great cities must not only fol
low, arrest, try, convict and punish their
criminals, hut they must search out their
poor, their desperately poor, and give
them the courage to be good by teaching
their hands useful employments and
planting a hope in their souls. Unless
this shall be done, there will be very
little that will be worth saving after a
little, for the repression that has been
practiced upon the poor of theOid World
for generations can never he practiced in
our country, for after just so much suffer
ing there will be an explosion that will
leave the rich as helpless as the poor now
are. _
This is the mild manner iu which the
Kansas City Times answers the above
question: And what is this thing called
anarchy ? Nothing that the world lia3
known since it had a recorded history
was over more infernal iu all of its attri
butes, situations and surroundings. So
ciety iu chaos. The law extirpated. The
weak being trampled upon and devoured
by the strong. Property rights a mere
delusion aod snare. Every virtue with
a price upon its head. War—3ervile,
predatory and civil. Highwaymen every
where. Bands of robbers, looters and
plunderers everywhere. Women de
bauched. Defiant murder stalking hither
aud thither, its garments all bloody, aud
its hands reeking. Churches desecrated,
pillaged aud burned. The ministers of
religion hunted into holes and hiding
places. Trade and traffic paralyzed from
the heart outward to every extremity.
Agriculture abandoned. The earth un
tilled. These would be some of the ter
rible attendants upon tlio footsteps of
anarchy, and these are what are meant
when the cries of “ Long live anarchy !”
are fast becoming persistent and multitu
ili^JUS. _
Few men come up to their highest
measure of success. Some fail through
timidity, or lack of nerve. They are
unwilling to take the risks incident to
life, and fail through fear in venturing
on ordinary duties. They lack pluck.
Others fail through imprudence, lack of
discretion, care or sound judgment. They
overestimate the future, and build air
castles, and venture beyond their depth,
and fail and fall. Others, again, fail
through lack of application and perse
verance. They begin with good resolves,
but soon get tired of that, and want a
change, thinking they can do much better
at something else. Thus they fritter life
away, and succeed at nothing. Others
waste time and money, and fail for want
of economy. Many fail through ruinous
habits; tobacco, whisky and beer spoil
them for business, drive their best cus
tomers from them, and scatter their pros
pects of success. Some fail for want of
brains, education, and fitness for their
calling; they lack a knowledge of human
nature, and of the motives that actuate
men. They have not qualified them
selves for their occupation by practical
In New York, a few days ago, a cloth
ing firm gave away 1,000 overcoats to
poor boys. Forty policemen were neces
sary to keep back the great crowd of lads
which surged in billows against the big
plate-glass windows. One little chap
handed a floor-walker a dingy note, say
ing that the bearer was the son of a w id
ow. “Who wrote this ?” inquired the
door-walker. “Alcfadder," innocently
replied the boy; but he got his coat just
the same. The 1,000 overcoats melted
before that army like snowflakes on an
oven. __

: cerns to politicians, against the begin

In no direction is so much money
! wasted by politicians and their friends as
in establishing campaign sheets, or in
i buying old but decaying newspapers in
the hope of influencing public opinion
through their columns. A newspaper
established for any other purpose than
! giving the news and advancing the gene

I it is published, is certain to be a failure,
j if its projectors look to the public for

! lished to further private ambitions or the
schemes of a certain clique of politicians,
is sure to be left upon the hands of its
owners, and fail to exercise aDy popular
influence, as soon as the reading public
divines the object of its existence. It
may also lie granted that a newspaper
that has not been able to make a living
for itself and its owners, and has so lost
ground with the public as to be for sale
to anybody who has campaign funds to
squander in that way, will never reim
burse its new owners, either in coin or
in votes.
The interests of persons that are such
in their nature and character as to be
cut off from the support and countenance
of the well-established and substantially
recognized public press, can never save
themselves by enlisting in theig service

Comstock Wre Bodies,
Appeal: For some years past the Car
son Appeal has been a steady advocate
of the ore bodies concealed on the Corn
stock. By concealed, we mean kept from
the general public. The mine managers
have known all along where these bodies
were. Now, when they conclude to show
oue up, an air of astonishment spreads
over everything. The superintendents
tell the guileless reporter how astonish
ing it is that “those ore bodies were
lying right there all the while and no
body ever suspected their whereabouts.”
When Con. Virginia was 25 cents a share
the public was frozen out by assess
ments; now the stock is £23, and the
parties who let go are now permitted to
come back and purchase. There is a big
deal on foot all along the ledge, founded
on merit, but there is no reason why the
deal could not have been made at any
time during the past Gve years. What
the Appeal objects to are the deals which
must come just when the insiders are
ready, and no one else. The talk about
so much Comstock stock being “scat
tered” at the present time is all non
We believe in the man or woman who
has “enemies.” This does not seem
sound, but it is. Your milk.and-water
people, who content themselves with
simply doing no harm, at the same time
do no good. They are mere negatives.
Your man of force, who does Dot wait
for a stone to get hurled out of his way,
but manfully rolls it over, may, uninten
tionally hurt somebody’s tees in the act,
but thousands who have to go that way
will thank him for clearing it. The man
who has no enemies is generally a sickly,
creeping or cowardly creature, caring for
no one but himself—smirking and creep
ing his unchallenged way to the ohscu
rity he merits. He adds nothing to the
common stock, does no good in the world,
and gees into six feet of earth without
one sincere regret from anybody. He
has had no enemies. But, has he had a
friend? A place is vacant, but not in
any warm, grateful heart.
Cleueroiia Miners.
Men and women are often lauded to
the skies for their great charity in giving
a few dollars that have come into their
possession through no act or exertion of
their own, but you only get the pure
article of charity when a man takes from
the wages he has earned by the sweat of
his brow to help a needy friend. Yes
terday was pay day at the Hale & Nor
cross and Savage mines, and as each man
received the wages due him he left be
hind him on the clerk’s desk a portion
of the same—no man less than §2, others
S4, and some So. This was for the assist
ance of William Foley, a Comstock miner
of 20 years' standing, who is now unable
to work and in needy circnmstanoes.
The coin thus donated will amount to
several hundred dollars.—Enterprise.

A young Australian near Bochara, af
ter an unusually hard day’s work sheep
shearing, went to sleep on the sitting
room couch after supper. Soon he arose,
walked out into the darkness, went
through four gates, which he carefully
closed, to the woodshed, and then hung
up his coat and took down the sheep
shears and sharpened them. Then he
caught a sheep and had just finished
shearing it when some of the household
came with a lantern. Then it turned
out that he had boon asleep all the time,
and the light of the lantern awakened
him. The sheep was sheared as well as
though it had been done in broad day
light. ___

Death of Dr*. Dluule Nbcrhlwu
The Causes Which Led to It.
Four new waitresses came here six
weeks ago from San Francisco, ami
went to work in the Stone suloon.
Last Saturday morning one of them,
Minnie Sheridan, died under circum
stances which caused a flutter of sus
picion that she had been foully dealt
with. Her friends did not appear to
know that she was seriously sick, un
til informed of her death by Ed.
Diamond, with whom she had been
living. They notified Under Sheriff
Hives of the death, and also informed
him that their late companion had
saved about which she had in her
possession but a few days previous,
and at the time of her death, only $7
could be found, llus circumstance,
coupled with the fact that she had
been convulsed with spasms for
several hours before her death caused
the suspicion. A Coroner’s inquest
was held on the body, hut there was
nothing in the evidence adduced to
show that any wrong had been done.
It appears that she had been for five
or six years in the habit of smoking
opium, and drank hard at times.
After she was taken sick, she was at
tended by a Chinese doctor, who
gave her medicine to stop purging and
vomiting. She also used honey, and
a residue oi opium to cure her of the
opium habit. Those who attended
the deceased during her sickness are
blamed for having satisfied lier crav
ings for hot and cold drinks, etc.,
which probably chilled and caused
paralysis of the stomach, superinduc
ing exhaustion, and in this state she
died. The verdict of tho Coroner’s
jury was that she came to her death
from taking an overdose of medicine.
Tlie husband and father of the de
ceased, were informed by telegraph of
her deatli and last Tuesday the hus
band telegraphed instructions to bury
her here, and send him the bills for
the expenses. Her funeral therefore
took place on the following day.

Birnev, intending to stope out a breast
of ore. Henry Phillips was engaged
in cutting timbers preparatory to the
work ahead. Yesterday week he had
fallen a tree, and was moving away,
when lie slipped his foot and fell over
a perpendicular bluff of rocks, landing
15 feet below. The only thing that
saved him from falling 25 feet further,
and being dashed among the coarse
broken rocks was, that by good for
tune he got wedged in between the
bluff and one of the trees he had
felled. His shoulder was dislocated,

A Thrifty l.n\tycr.
August Muenter, a rich Stockton
lawyer, appears to be a decidedly
thrifty member of a profession noted
for its thriftiness. He was employed
by a poor widow to defend her home
stead, and accordingly drew out the
necessary pa(>ers. Then he went to
the other side and engaged himself to
antagonize his own client. When
confronted with the complaint and
answer, both in his own hand writing,
the scoundrel is reported to have
“ wilted.” The wonder is that a man
with such brazen audacity should
think it worth while to manifest any of
the symptoms of remorse common" to
honest men. One would suppose,
under the circumstances, that the
Court before whom the shameful
revelation was made would have
ordered Muenter into jail for con
tempt, but it did nothing of the kind.
