THE CEKTBIL REVADAN.
l»mn»«T^iyin «, ikm. jiimh* a\d Mist: u» *ri:s. The all absorbing question of a re duction in the prices paid for min ers’ labor throughout the State of Nevada, is now being discussed by everyone interested, and many are the opinions expressed pro and con by the people and the mine owners. There seems be a general belief among the mine owners and L ma jority of the people that a reduction should be made. This opinion is Indulged in to a great extent by the miners themselves, but how to bring it about without dissolving the union has not yet been suggested by any of the unions throughout the State. It seems unjust that the mine owners should be compelled to pay $4 per day for labor per formed upon mines that are of low grade, and in many instances where the oreextracted will scarcely pay for the labor performed, to say nothing of the other expenses incurred in runing a mine. The union man says, “let the mine close down if it will not pay to run at the present rate of wages, but that means to does down three fourths of the mines throughout the State and keep hundred* of men from earn ing an honest living; for with the present large discount on silver and the many disadvantages under which the mine owners labor, it is impossible for them to run their mines and pay union wages. Another argument used by the union is, that they cannot live and support their families at a less rate of wages, owing to the present high prices of living. There are many men with families living here who cannot find employment at the pres ent rate of wages and are compelled tD go elsewhere to seek it. Many of them go to Utah, Idaho, Arizona or New Mexico, and work in the mines of either of these ter ritories for $3 per day, while their families live here and have to be supported from those earnings. Now if a man can labor for $3 a day in any of the above mentioned terri tories and support a family here, why could he not support himself and family by laboring for the same rate of wages at home ? The an swer is, he could ; but being a mem ber of the union, he is compelled when unable to find employment in this State at the standard wages, to go some place where there is no union and leave his more fortunate brother to enjoy the society of his his family, and draw $4 per day for his labors. Another argument used against the reduction of wages is the high freights and fares charged by the railroad companies. Does anyone who advances that argument remem ber the low rate of wages paid for their labor in the mines of the East and the old countries, and the cheap rate of transportation they had on the railroads of those countries? If so, what reason do they assign for the difference between that and this country? Are not the high rates caused by the sparse popula tion of this State and the limited freight necessary to be carried by our transportation lines, and the cheap fares of the East attributable to the dense population and the un limited amount of transportation necessary to supply the people? Is not the population of Nevada dim inishing; is not the bullion product falling off; are there not hundreds of low grade mines here that could be worked at a less grade of wages than is now allowed by the union ? Are there not thousands upon thous ands of men in the United States who would be willing to labor in our mines for a less sum per day than the union now demands? Would not the population be in creased, new mines developed, new reduction works built, the price of living reduced, and freights and fares become cheaper if the laborers were allowed to make their own con tracts with the mine owners and work for what their labor is worth.' Can the purchaser of bullion be compelled to pay more for it than the article is woith in the market? Just so with miners’ wages. It is not worth to the mine owners what the union men demand for it; and the question is whether the miners will keep their labor and the capi talists their money, and let the mines lie idle and the State become de populated, or will they accept the situation and labor for such prices as the mine owners can afford to pay? In some mines the labor per formed in a day by one man is un doubtedly worth more than $4 to the mine owner; and there are: miners that are worth twice that amount per day to work in any mine, but the rule is that every man who works by the light of a candle under ground shall be entitled to the standard price for his labor, no matter whether he earns it or not. Somebody says mining is skilled labor. The vaquero has to have a great deal of experience and prac tice before he can successfully throw the lasso or “fork” a “bucking” mustang, and yet he only commands $40 per month for his labor. Just so with the teamster, rancher, and laborer in all brances of industry. A skilled workman in any other [ branch of industry except mining,; has to serve an apprenticship of some years duration before he can ( command the standard rate of wages ) paid for men of his trale. W y should the miner draw as much j wages the first day he goes under ! ground as he gets after years of ex perience. These arc some of the rcasors given by the mine owners and card talists why they should not be com pelled to pay $4 per day to all men1 employed to work under ground. ota s.u.i nnrsii ux'r.T. A Pen I*d».ir oT fl.Uflo I'm mu Stearin Starting Onl in IL»* (irlti from Austin. “ I heard that little sage brush girl sing the other night,” said a Ne vada man the other night at the Palmer House, and I went and paid my $2.50 with a double interest. 1 rst, she is a Nevada girl and 1 knew her father; next, I’m a great admirer of John Mackay, her friend and backer, and third, I happened to be on the Cattle Mountain iage when she went over from Austin to the railroad on her way to Europe eight or nine yearsnpo, I don’t re member which. I well remember, however, seeing Dr. Wixom getting the baggage on the stage, and the troops of young mining town ladies to see ‘little Em Wixom,’ as they called her, off. She was considered a great prodigy up in the sagebrush and the Case Rangers thought she had a voice like a linnet. She was about eigiiteen years old and very ugly. (She’s improved a great deal since then in looks). I remember it was a very warm day that we started out over the desert to ride the ninety-five miles to Cattle Moun tain. ‘Little Em, wore a big straw hat and a linen duster, and her face was as full of freckles as a pepj cr box is full of holes. She sat up with the driver most of the time (1 sat right behind her), and the way she rattled off was amusing to the crowd. Some of us thought she was just a little too ‘peart.’ They had a great time bidding her good bye at Austin. The mining super intendents were there, and their wives, and of course the local editor. Fred Hart, a little Jew, who was said to be much in love with the maiden, came with a natty cane and and a plug hat. which the miners wanted to ‘shoot.’ Miss Wixom frowned on the editor’s suit, and he had the meanness afterwards to abuse both her father and herself. Nobody then thought the little pug- ^ nosed, freckle-faced, country-looking girl, who was then only known as a base range piana banger and a ‘Sil ver-Threads-Among-the-Gold vocal ist, would ever become a prima don na at $r,ooo a night. But then, such is life. Pluck wins, and we could all see on that liattle Moun tain stige that clay th it the Aust.n girl had lots of it.”—Chicago Her ald. TUc Value «f t'lillity. There would be fewer broken friendships, fewer unhappy unions and family quarrels, were it not so much the custi m amongst intimate friends snd relations to neglect die small courtesies i f life, to show less and less mutual deference as they grow more familiar. It is the foundation of misery in maniage, and many a serious and life-long estrangement has begun, nit from want of direction so much as f. on 1 ick of that delicate and instinc ire appreciation of the feelings of otheis, which makes a petson shrink fr ill saying unpleasant things and finding fault unless aba du'ely obliged, and in any case avoid w mndii g tile offender's sense of digit. 1 r stirring up whithin him feelings of opposition and animosity, for, although many persons profess to be above taking offense at honest censure, and even seem to court criticism, yet it must be very carefully administered nut to be unpalatable. Every kind and gen erous action are often so uucouthly performed as to cause the recipient more pain than pleasure, while a reproof or denial may be so sweetened by courtesy r.s almost to do away whith any sense of mortitication r disappointment. True, good breed ing is always inclined to from a fav-1 oroide judgment, and t6 give others ' credit of being actuated by worthy motives; it does not wish or seem to know tin ra about people than they themselves desire should bj known, but it is always prepared, when nec essary, to t ikean interest in the- 1 is i f otlie'S.
