PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY BY E. A.. 8KILLMAN. SATURDAY, MAY 23. 1903. THAT BOND EXCHANGE. For several weeks an uneasy rumor has been going over the State. The Nevada State Board of Education, com posed of Governor John Sparks, J. E. Stubbs, President of the State Uni versity, and Orvis Ring, State Superin tendent of Public Instruction, has ex changed United States bonds, belong ing to the Nevada State School Fund, f„r bonds of the State of Massachusetts. This transfer may result in a gain to the State; more, it may ruin our State School Fund, Elsewhere in the Sentinel space has been devoted to the transaction, with press comments on it, charges against it, and a speoifio denial from Hon. Robert Raftice that the Senate Com mittee on Education of the last Legis lature approved of the exchange. It is a fact that every move in America’s commercial and political life, whether for good or evil, can be traced invariably to one man. Now, the charge 19 mude that this transfer of bonds has been a loss to the School Fund, that the Legislative Coni' mittees on Education approved the deal, and it is made to appear that it was a scheme for private gain. Naturally the question arises, if this be triie, who are the conspirators and who aided them? Senator Raftiee has spoken for the Senate Committee on Education. Whether the gentlemen comprising the Nevada State Board of Education have been led into a scheme to filch the State School Fund, or not, they should realize that it is no longer dis creet to remain silent. The public demand is for a statement revealing the nature and extent of the business transacted by the Board with Mr. Kelly, who represented the Kansas City syndicate. Why should the State Board of Education permit the looting of the State School Fund for any outside con cern? If the members of the Board of Edu cation knew nothing more than that there were “advantageous” Massachu setts bonds floating around, and were blinded by the statement that in a few years there would be no more United States “Fours,” their awakening to the realization of a conspiracy to defraud being carried on under their very eyes, without their knowing it, will not characterize them ns a “deliberate body” whose calm and thorough in vestigations enhance the values of our school moneys. However anxious the parties to the conspitaey (?)are that the Board of Edu cation should combine the honors of Custodians of School Funds with the trials of scapegoats, it will be impos sible to keep the names of the guilty ones concealed, for all the fury of Ne vada's taxpayers is directed against any attempt to tamper with Nevada’s State School Fund. INFUSES HOPE. Many railroads are constructed in Nevada—on paper. Now and then, the Sextin'el has checkered its oolumns ■with ties and rails; and at times we could almost hear the whir-r-r chu-chu of the new transcontinental, as our lighting cylinder was rolling out the news at the rate of 23,000 an hour. But we are hopeful, and we are coufi dent. If the current railroad news proves false, we will still hope. For Westward is the march of Progress. A month ago, W. J. Bartnett, a San Francisco attorney, went East to inter est capital in the projected railroad from Salt Lake to San Francisco. This road is known as the Western Pacific, and its surveys are distanced only fifteen or twenty miles from Eureka Mr. Bartnett has returned to San Fran> cisco, and the success of his Eastern mission is best stated in his own words, published in the Bulletin of May 18: “The building of the road is now an absolute certainty. Construction will be rapidly poshed and the road will be completed from Salt Lake to the Coast as expeditiously as possible. “It is useless to ask me the details of what transpired on my trip East, for I cannot discuss them. The public is interested in the building of the new road to Salt Lake, and it is sufficient to state that we can now give positive as surance that the roal will be built, and as expeditiously as possible.” The San Jose, California, school cen sus shows a decrease of 4U0 school chil dren since 1902, and yet that city has increased in population durmg the past year. This showing is another bit of evidence in proof of the absurdity of Nevada’s present system of appor tioning school moneys on a census showing. It offers a premium for per jury and has been tainted with frauds for many years. There is but one fair way to apportion school moneys—on the average attendance at schools. MEMORIAL DAY. Memorial Day, a day each year set apart, when the whole Amerioan people pay tribute to our dead, is a day that inspires us with interest and awe. Death is never to be despised. There are skeptics. When those near and dear to us pass from “here on this bark and shoal of time" to the pale realms beyond, we pause and think. They are gone. We deplore their loss, but onr grief is not unmixed with joy. In our hope we humbly raise our hearts to the bowed head on Calvary; and, believing in eternal life, await the promised meeting in the home beyond the blue.” On Saturday, May 30, let ns mingle together; then, a little, communing in our sorrow, ere we lay our wreaths, dedicated to their virtues and services, upon the silent graves of our dead. A. O. U. W. The Grand Lodge Ancient Order United Workmen, Nevada Jurisdiction, convened in Carson City this week. The following officers were elected for the en suing two years: Grand Master, J. A.

The Cur Ini u Uiiuk nowu ou Ely’s Labor Trouble. William Lloyd, who was convicted of simple assault by a jury in the Distriot Court at Ely last week, was fined §250 and costs, amounting to §170, by Judge Brown. It will be remembered that Mr. Lloyd was Presideut of the newly organized Miners’ Union at Ely last Jaouary when a difficulty arose between the Union and John A. Traylor, Superintendent for tbo Keystone Copper Company, which resulted iu the killiog of three Union men by Tray lor. At the preliminary trial Traylor was acquitted, but the Grand Jury found two indictments—false imprisonment and at tempted kidnaping—against Lloyd. These were reduced to simple assault at his trial, followed by conviction and fine as above stated. So ends a horrible tragedy and deplorable affair. LOCAL SOCIAL NOTES.

The Chief Executive of the Nation Visits the a tale Capital and Beno. President Roosevelt end his party reached Reno at 7:30 o’clock Tuesday morning, and after a five-minute stop went on to Carson, returning to Reno about 11 o’clock. Both cities were gaily and elaborately decorated and the population was aug mented by the people from all the near by towns. The multitudes awaited their distinguished guest at the depots, and their greetings were expressions of the respectful and patriotic feelings which mark the civility of the whole people for the Chief Executive of the Nation re gardless of political affiliations. At Carson Governor Sparks spoke tne words of welcome on behalf of the people and introduced the President. lie made a brief address, after which he was hur riedly driven over the city and escorted back to Reno. Here the President was welcomed by Mayor Turrittin. The Mayor introduced the President to the people and he made a lengthy speech, dwelling particularly on the prosperity of the country and the great future in store for Nevada through the new irriga tion laws. He remembered the soldiers, emphasized the country’s need of good citizens and eulogized the school chil dren.

Tbe storm which began a week ago has been general throughout tbe West, rang ing from a blinding blizzard in the inter ior to a terrific hurricane on the Coast, accompanied by snow and rain. Stock raisers have suffered the heaviest damage in years. In Montana the estimated loss will reach $5,000,000 in sheep and cattle. In some sections fully 90 per cent of the sheep on the ranges have perished, and several herders are reported frozen to death. ■ 1 . f__ No word lias been received ot any cattle or sheep losses in Nevada. News from the western part of the State says the fruit and crops have not been dam aged. But little injury has been done the fruit in Duck water, Nye county, by the frost. At Currant Creek the dam age is greater. If the present storm is followed by warm weather feed of all kinds will be greatly benefited, and Stockmen through out Nevada should have a most prosper ous year. Reports from all the ranges were to the effect that grass, after having received a good start, was drying up and more moisture was sadly needed. The present precipitation has been sufficient to make good feed on the ranges and will thus prove of great benefit to the stock raising interests of the State. The barometer does not yet indicate that the storm is over. C'arloacl of New Vehicle*.
