NO' DAT ....FIBRIAKT 2. 1S80 WORK. There are certain classes of people in the world who attempt to gut through life on the principle that The Lord will provide." They embrace the rich who do not have to work aud the poor who won't. Providence hits given cs all. a place out of which to wake a sphere of usefulness. There are fields to be tilled, crops to be garnered and mines to be developed on every side. M tney does not grow out of the gronnd already milled and coined, but the ronxh materal is there and pluck, persever ance and hard work will do the rust. Per sonal pride keeps thousands from being wealt hy. L t a poor man once get a notion that he has blue blood in him and he is ruined for the rest of his life. He sees a poor boy peddling saw dust to saloons or retailing frail on which he only clears four bits a day, aud despises him. In a few years the poor poy begius to reap the reward of his industry and becomes a man of means and position, while the lazy, useless, and blwod-proud companion of his erly days is still at the foot of the ladder, uuwilliug to place his foot upon the first round. Men are constantly eomplaiuing of hard times who in a few years spend money enough for whisky and tobacoo to have built themselves good hemes. There am to-day hundreds of mining men (talking up and down Pine street in San Francisco, who are glad to nibble at the free lunch tables. They contrast their daily diet of beer and beans with the recollections of champagne and truffles, and think that the country is goinjj to the dogs. It is the peo ple, not the country, that are going to the dogs. The country never was in a better fix, but the people, as Fanner Trea Iway would re mark, have become "shiftless calamities." The masses have become tired of supporting the non-producers in idleness. The saloon keener who oiice sold four cents worth of adul terized whisky for twenty-five cents, thinks the country has caved in because men insist on a better article now for ten cents. Yet he atill sits behind the bar of his decaying saloon and considers that he has a personal grievance against every passer-by who will not come in and spend five dollars with the bummers and loafers that cluster about his stove. The rain ing manipulators think that the bottom of the country has dropped out because they can no longer dignifr a worthless old prospect hole by the title of a mine, and float off 100,000 shares on the pnblio at $2 a share and upwards, and then levy 23 cent assessments on the stock every sixty days. When laws are passed com pelling brokers to deal squarely with their cus tomers, and making it impossible to break a market with stock which does not belong to them, the unfortunate victims of this high handed outrage annnnoe that the country is given over to communism and disorder, and threaten to take themselves to New York, to which locality may the Lord speed their going The mining secretary who oan no longer get $1500 a month for signing the stock certifi catts of three wild cat mining companies, is quite positive that the country is going to the dogs. If the broken down mining sharps, brokers, clerks and secretaries now subsisting on the cold beans lay-ont of Pauper alley, would scatter to the fields, the foot hills, the valleys and the mountains, and go to work, their lot in life would be much improved. Let the men who have been dealing in wild cats and paper locations, rummage about in the hills of Nevada until they have discovered and located a bona fida quartz ledge. Let the timid capitalist who is afraid to invest unless he can double his money in five years, drag his idle gold from his money vaults, and put it in motion once more. If it only pays him five per ceut a year, and gives a hundred peo ple employment, it has contributed its share toward stirring up the pool of business stagna tion now covered with the green scum of idle ness and distrust. The wealth of the future will never spring from the chin music of the resent. Clear the decks of the idle, the vic ious, the cowardly and the grasping. Then induce a few live capitalists to take the lead, ; Btart the ball of industry rolling, and in one year the sun ot a new era of prosperity would mile iu the valleys of California, and gild the rugged mountains of Nevada. RAILWAY LAND BILLS. Congress is bow considering the question of curtailing the immense land grants to railroad companies, and it is also proposed to reduce the price of government lands within th belts of railway grants. The Senate bill re ported back by the Senator Booth, on Tues day of last week, is aimed to grapple with this evil. On this subject the San Francisco Chronicle makes the following pertinent re marks 'It was a mistaken idea of public Tne Bodie Standard says that Billy White, who so seriously stabbed James Murphy at the Stanford Con. mine on Tuesday morning, wa arrested by Deputy Sheriff Grant a few hours afterwards. When White was arrested it was found that he had stabbed himself three times in the breast with the same weapon that he used upon Murphy. The wounds, how ever, are slight White had been drinking very hard, aad it i thought consmited theact under an attack of the delirium tremens. Mr. Murphy is a man of great strength and endur ance, and strong hopes are entertained of his recovery. Taa workingmen of San Francisco lost their best friend when Ralston drowned himself. If he got the best of the rich, he also gave his money a chance. He never kept an idle dol lar. Mammoth enterprises engaged his at tention, and these in tarn gave employment to the poor. Ralston has no fit snccesser amcng the present millionaires of San Francisco. " Ralston robbed the rich and distributed it among the poor. The other money-bags of the Pa rob everyloly and keep it." This wrote a correspondent of an Eastern paper,and policy when Congress doubled the price of th even-numbered sections lying within the rail way belts. It retards the settlement of th public domain and contributes little or nothin toward the increase of the revenue from the sales of land, to double the price. Moreover it assists the railway grantees in their efforts to extort upon the settlers in selling the add numbered sections. True policy suggests that the Government should do all it can to stim ulate the settlement and cultivation of th public domain, and nothing to obstruct the acquisition of homesteads. Nabody but the railway grantees have an interest in keeping up the prise of the even-numbered sections within the railway belts to double the price charged for lands outside the belts. The time has passed when Congress could afford to legislate for these pampered corporations at the expense of the people. They have disap pointed all reasonable expectation with refer ence to the benefits anticipated from their roads at the time the grants were made. Their history has been marked by every conceivable form of fraud, ingratitude and oppression. The best of them have abused the favors awarded to them; and some of them have vio lated their contracts and forfeited their grants but are still continuing to sell the land at rates far above the double minimum, in the hope that Congress will hereafter approve the fraudulent sales and confirm the title. What Congress should do, and without delay, is to formally abrogate every laud grant to a rail way, the terms of which have not been strict ly complied with, and reduce the price of the even-numbered sections within the railway way belts from $2 50 to $1 25 per acre." In connection with the above it is in order to state that a petition drawn by the State Land Register, and forwarded by him to every part of the State, is being signed withou t hesita tion everywnere, oy tne people. Uopies can be found at several of the principal business places in the city." The petition reads as follows : To Tic. Ilonorable tlu Congress of the United States: Your petitioners, residents of the State of Nevada, won id respectfully represent that the (jrovernment land? even numbered sen tions remaining unsold, within the limits of the Central Pacific land grant, in the State of Nevada, are of the character known as iMs- ert Lands; that cannat be cultivated, except by artificial means of irrigation, aud that a large proportion of the same are unreclaimable by reason of their altitude and remoteness from springs, or any other natural water sources. That with the exception of small and unim portant tracts, the best of such lands those lying nearest to water have been disposed of by tne Uoverinent, at the double minimum price, two dollars and fifty cents per acre. That the remaining portion of the even numbered sections within said railroad limits are, in their natural condition, only fit for grazing purposes, being in part mountainous or billy and mostly covered with sagebrush, and produce but a limited and sparse growth of bunch grass, and requiring a large area of land to support an ordinary herd of cattle. That on account of the difficulty and great expense attending the procuring of water for irrigating purposes, and the high price fixed (2 50 per acre), these lauds are not readily sought or occupied bv settlers. Your petitioners would further represent tht the rainfall in Nevada is less than in any other State or Territory, and that the soil of the State, from climatic causes, differs in character and quality from the rich wheat producing lands lying within the great water shed of the Mississippi, where seasonable rains induce fertility, and where the labor and expense of irrigation is unknown. hi!e we recognize the fact that settlers up n the fertile r i i;8 ani rich bottom lands ot the Mississippi Sutes may, as a rule, be benefited and their lands enhanced in value on account of their proximity to railroads which afford a convenient means of conveying tu market the vast surplusage of the harvest, we assert that the rule does not and never can be made to apply to the desert wastes of Ne vada, where cultivated land is scarce, and where all farm products find a home market, aud are not to any extent transported by rail to differeut parts of the State or out of the State ; for this reason among others the lands lying within the Central Pacific Railroad grant are not enhanced in value on aceount of their nearness to, or on account of any other relation to said railroad. Your petitioners would further represent that desert land claims of six hundred and forty acres each, are being located npon even num bered sections within the said railroad limits, at one dollar and twenty-five cents per acre, and that in our judgment the payment of two dollars and titty cents per acre, required of pre-emption claimants, for the same land, is an unjust and unreasonable discrimination against the bona fade settlers upon such lands, Wherefore, we, yours petitioners, pray that your honorable body will enact a law, restor ing such lands, for all purposes, to the mini mum status and price of one dollar and twenty five cents per acre ; andyonr petition ers, as in duty bound, will ever pray, Ac. This is a matter of great importance, and the petition should be signed by all who have the welfare of the State at heart. A Fight with A Devil Fish. Mr. Sin!' , the Government diver who was a tacked by a large octopus, or devil-fish, while at work re cently on the bed of the Moyne River, at Bel fast in the Colony of Victoria, gives an ac count of the affair through the London Times: Having thrust my arm into a hole, I found it was held by something, and the action of the water was stirring up the loose clay, and 1 could not see distinctly for a few minutes; but wheu it did clear away, I saw to my horror the arm of a huge octopus entwined around mine like a boa constrictor, and just then he fixd some of his suckers on the back of my hand, and the pain was intense. I felt as if my hand was being pulled to pieces, and the more I tried to take it away the greater the pain be came. 1 had great difficulty in keeping my feet down, as the air rushed along in the inte rior of my dress and inflated it, aud if my feet had got uppermost I should have become in sensible: also, if I had given the signal to be pulled up, the brute would have held on, and I should have had a broken arm. I had a hammer with me but could not reach down to use it. There was a small iron bar about five feet from me, and I dragged this along with my foot until I could reach it with my left hand. And bow the fight commenced, and the more I struck him the tighter he squeezed, until my arm trot quite benumbed. After a while I found the grip beginning to relax, but he held on until I had almost cut him to pieces, and then he relaxed his hold on the rock and I pulled him up. I was completely exhausted, and brought the animal, or a part of him, to the surface with me. We laid him out, and he measured over eight feet across. 1 am convinced that this fellow could have held down five or six men. A petrified rattlesnake was recently found near Lovelock's station. The hea 1 is missing, but the body and rattles are in a perfect condition. The National Democratic Committee will be held in Cincinnati, June 22. CARSON OPERA HOUSE. T. J.
