FRIH1T SEPTEMBEK 3. 1S7 THE NEVADA CENTRAL RAILWAY, I t is promised by those who have under taken the construction of the road from Hattle Mountain to Austin, that it is to be run entirely in the interest of the region through which it passes and will enter into no wood contracts or other competition, to the disadvantage of individual enterprise, If the management is satisfied with a legiti mate carrying trade, the road must develop a large extent of country in the vicinity of Austin, and of which that camp is the center. Mr. Allen Curtis, who has done more to de velop the trade of Austin than any other man ; is one of the directors and an officer of the company, and will no doubt wield a large in fluence in the control of its aff.ujs, and his name is a guarantee of faithfulness to the interest of the public. One of the staunchest supporters of the undertaking, and from his position as a public man, one of the most effective, Senator M. J. Farrell, has been somewhat overlooked by parties who ' have noticed the enterprise. We happen to know that much of its success is due to his close study of the wants of his district, and an active personal interest in pushing to a conclu sion the new road. When Mr. Farrell under takes a work, he generally gives his whole mind to it, and while we may be disposed to differ with him in some of his positions on railroad business, and management, we can not withold the opinion that he works for wbt he conceives to be the best interest of his State, and generally works with a will, and we congratulate Mike on tho success of his pet scheme. His railroad record iu the last session of our Legislature, got him, like Doctor Dudley, "decently damned," but we hope in this case to see the judgment re versed, and that this one road at least, will try to "discriminate" in the interest of its patrons, and be the means sf developing another slice of what the people are too apt to consider, our barren State. The Enttvprlit hits the bull's eye in the fol lowing: "One of the absurd things growing out of the attempted assassination of Kalloch, at San Erancisco, is the attempt of the Social ists and so-called Labor party East to turn the affair to political account. The assumption is that Kalloch is a martyr to the cause instead of a political blatherskite and demagogue, and upon this presuuption pretend that he was shot because he was a WTorkingmen's candi date; whereas it is notorious that the shooting waa the result of a personal quarrel, and had no sort of bearing upon the political issues be tween the Workingnaen and their opponents. The whole thing is about as justifiable as one of Mr. BobingersolTs arguments against the Christian religion. And a crazier set of "Whereases" and "Kesolvea" than, these re oentiy enacted by the "mass meetings'' in the East it would be difficult to imiirine. One of these so-called leaders conies out flit against agricultural machinery, being of the opinion that labor-saving machinery was to be the ruin of the farmer, as he claimed it had been o: moehanics; that the only hope for humanity was in a rising of the denizens of the slums against the capitalist and well-to-do. Lacking the power to rule, this man wants to enter UDon the alternate programme of ruin. The man who gets upon a stand in the presence of intelligent people and offers an emission of this kind, is laboring under an hallucination of one-side-isrn, indue 3d by the monthings of demagogical party blatherskites, which sug gests an advanced stage of softening of the brain, or what is in its place. Thb Spkagi'e Affair will in all probability be brought before the public through the courts, unless Conkling can manage to throw coldjwater on it in some way; and all its nasti ness bo published to the world through the press, as was the celebrated Forrest case, the Beecher scandal and a hundred others of less note. The most reprehensible thing in the whole affair, next to Conkling's part, is that Sprague, who was undoubtedly cognizant of a state of affairs which was known to every one tlse, should not havearranged aquietscparation r the sake of his children, or avenged the ngs on the miserable fop who had com passed his ruin. The scandal should never have reached the public ear, except in such questionable shape as to at least favor a doubt in behalf of his wife and little ones ; even though he had himself shouldered the load of scape coat. It is a fearful ordeal for any inam to pass through, and requires the endurance of a martyr; but sucti a course wouia nave at least shown him possessed of common man hood, and saved the public from the infliction of another flood of scandal. Fhom California papers we learn that bogiis tickets were being pretty freely distributed at the polls in San Francisco, and the usual amount of fraudulent attempts at voting going forward, inducing some arrests, and a few little fignts. The registration laws seem to have no effect in stopping this nuisance, and repeaters seem to have no fear of penal ties, knowing as they do, that if the candid ate for whom they perjure themselves, is suc cessful, they have a friend behind the throne who will work for pardons, and they get their price in any case. Why does not Congress put its foot upon the Great Register, as an in tolerance with the rights and privileges of men, who, if not entitled to the ballot, mean to be at some time? It is just as bad as bay onets and Deputy Marshals, and should be ( abolished by law. STATE AND COAST ITEMS. Pat Holland & Co. propose commencin the publication of the Blie Daily Union nex Monday at Bi)die. It will be distributed gra tuitously, relying upon its advertising patron age for support. The Eureka Sentinel says: "Mike Doyle was locked up yesterday upon charges pre ferred by his wife, who asserts that he has abused her." Put up a post such as we have opposite the State House, and it will cure Mike effectually. There was a shooting affair at Deeth on Sun day night, in which a young man named Rus sell was killed by one McCoy because Russell wanted to carry off McCoy's sister. The pis tol is becoming the arbiter in all our affairs, and decidedly fashionable. The Nevada Central Railway has had a send off at Battle Mountain. Ground was broken on Monday, and a general mutual admiration meeting was held, and now one can cross that ninety miles of desert in a few months, with out shivering r melting for sixteen hours in a rickety stage. Two men quarreled fiercely last night in Virginia City. K .lloclusius were freely ex changed, and blows would have followed had not one of the desperadoes walked off mutter ing: it ever 1 meet tliat tellow 111 San frail- cisco and get him up to the muzzle of a coupe I'll cook his goose for him !" The Eureka Leader says that the facts con cerning the case of Duff, the defaulting audi tor of the Eureka it Palisade railroad, lire that Duff was followed to the Smdwich Islands by a detective, who procured his arrest and de tention iu custody for two days, when the prisoner procured the services of a lawyer, and was at once released, the detective not beisig able to produce any authority whereby he could retain or remove his prisoner. Duff is not only at liberty, but has procured employ ment and has been at work f.r a month. ATa regular meeting of the Bodie Miners Union h 1 1 oil the twenry. sixth of August, Jo seph and Bernard MeDonald, George Harber nd Joseph Burnell were expelled from the Union "forever." The men named are under arrest at Bridgeport for the murder of John Goff, one of the claimants of the ground upon which the shooting affray occurred, recently, etweeu a force of Jupiter and Otvt'hee men. Lyon county Times. If all the Unions will take such action it will break up the practice of either jumping claims or a resort to the shot gun and revolver to es tablish rights. We have laws protecting ev ery man in his rifhts, but apparently none for the protection of life. Wo have seen within three years, three confessed murderers escape justice; murderers whom judge, jury and counsel must have known to be guilty, while an unfortunate devil who was driven to steal his dinner, werii to ?he penitentiary. Men who will hire themselves to any claimant for fighting purposes, deserve to be driven from every Union in the land, and the men who employ them should be held accountable for every death occurring on either side, through such means. The Rev. Dr. William P. Breed, who is spending the Summer at Ocean Beach, N. J., seems to have been critically and coldly studying the women bathers. Iu a letter by him in the Evangelist is the following passage: "Beauty unadorned adorned i most.." This may be true of rainbows, sunset clouds, and humming birdB, but it it the poles asunder from the truth with respect to the beauty of a woman. A French milliner, indeed, could hardly make a Venus of Meg Merrilies, but an American bathing suit maker could go near to making a Macbeth witch of Venus. How a woman, costumed in average style for a buffet with the breakers, would serve as a scare crow I do not know, but her success as a scare horse has been demonstrated. That horse would lose all claim to respect that would not run from a bathing non-suit such as is common at most seaside resorts. If any one has a desire to see of what some men and women are built, the bathing place is the spot of all others to find out. That symmetrical youth, with broad shoulders and shapely limbs a perfect Adonis on the sand is dressed in a flannel bathing suit and fantas tic hat is, after he has had one plunge, a mere lay figure, a jumping jack of such questionable shape, that his identity is swal lowed up in a suit which clings to him like " seaweed to a clam." He's simply an ani mated clothes rack. And that woman, whose Hebe form you have gazed on with swelling admiration, we mean her with the glorious hair and such a waist and bust Gods, how the vision fades as you volunteer to attend her in the surf ! " How stale, fiat and " skinny she is, as supported by your hand she floats quietly on the gentle rolls. The blue vault is her only mirror there and she can not "see herself as others see her." If any one admires well proportioned, plump forms, let him watch the hour when the hoUl hambermaids go in, but never look for it among the butterfly beauties -he dances with at the nightly hops, and who always refuse a ail false teeth are too expensive, you know. They have a less murderous way of doing t over in the Dominion they abduc. What's the use of shooting a man when you can corrall him for any indefinite period. The assassins of Lincoln always insisted that their plot was only one of abduction and not assassination, but "the best laid plans mice an' men, gang aft aglee," and so Lincoln got killed. Did De Yonng only in- nd abduction? 1879. 1879. SECOND ANNUAL FALL MEETING -or TBI 2W 3D XT 3D A. El. & E3.

Fox's LARGE BOOK AND JEWELRY STORE Reso Gazette: Harry Chapman, who killed Foley at Hot Springs, writes from Stillwater to a friend in Reno, under date of Sept. 1st, ;ivinj the following statement of the affiir ar Hot Springs. The man Foh;y had been pur suing Chapman for five or six months. The latter had been afraid of him and kept out of his way as much as possible. Last Saturday he went into Vadsvorth and got to drinking, lie came back from Wadsworth on freight train No. 5. After tho train left, he came into the railroad oftice and called for his freight bills. While Chapman was m iking them out, Foley commenced abasing him iu the most outrageous manner. Chapman made no reply until his wife came in. Foley turned upon her and called her the worst of nanus, accom panying the epithet with a most indecent ges ture, aud following it np with an obscene ex pression. After uttering the wordj he threw his hands behind him and dared Chapman ''to take it up." The shooting then followed. Chapman went immediately afterward to Stillwater and gave him'solf up. His exami nation is set for Saturday. The Tribune publishes interviews with Judge A. V. Tourgee, formerly of Ohio, an Abolitionoist, who settled in North Carolina at the close of the war, and with Dr. W. H. Simpson, lately of Texas. The Tribune says: 'After fourteen years' experience, during which he has been prominent in politics and and business, Judge of the Superior Court of the State, and an active practicing lawyer of Raleigh, enjoying all the while as much of the confidence of his neighbors aud co-workers as any Northern man can expect, Judge Tourgee has determined to leave North Carolina, be cause he finds it impossible for a Northern man of independence of mind to live there with comfort. Dr. Simpson was driven from Texas because of his efforts to bring to justice the murderers of one of his friends, a preacher f the African Methodist Church.
