.HAT 14, 188 PxtsiDENT Hater talks of coming to the Pacific Coait to see the country and ascertain haw the people like him. A. O. Biirce, who has been connected with the Argonaut siuce its first issue, is about to abandon the lirerary field , and take up the mining "expert" business. Coll Dean is again on deck with a propo. sition to show up the three bonanzas on the Comstock, but says Mackey won't let him. Mackey claims to have offered him $500,000 to show ene bonanxt. The public are wholly ia the dark as to which man to believe. It is said that some fifteen millions of peo ple in Russia have been cruelly persecuted by the Czar. Sympathy is wasted on fifteen millions of people who will thus submit to tyranny. A crowd of that size have ouly themselves to blame if they allow the Czar of Russia or any other man to walk en them. Americans are not awarded a very warm reception in Cauadaf: Donovan and Rooker went over there a few dayc ago to liven up the country with a prize fiht. They were met by a posse of police with rifles and shot guns, and ordered off the spot. This is a poor return for th style in which the Mar quis ef Lome was treated in the United States. The wife of the editor of the Petaluma (Oal.) Ptavim ran away with a tenor singer of the period, the other day. The Post hu morously remark: It was a good deal of a financial relief to the journalist, now that white paper is eleven cents a pound, but it galled him awfully to have her state in the note, which ladies always leave sticking in the looking glass on such occasions, that she regretted that she was forced to hav him " crowded out for more interesting mat ter. " m Following are the alternates and delegates to the Chicago Convention appointed by the Nevada Republican State Convention: a. S. Grass, alternate for J. J. Meis; J. W. McWilliams, alternate for W. W. Bishop; W. J. Marsh, alternate for M. D. Foley; Benjiimin Curler, alternate for T. D. Ed wards; J. K Shaw, alternate for E. Stro ther; J. B. Williamson, alternate for C. C, Stevenson. This gives Nevada six delegates instead of three as was the first impression from the fact that the six names telegraphed from Austin were supposed to include both delegates and alternates. More High Wind. The Reno Gaxette is responsible for the following: During a high wind which prevailed at Bo die the other day, a drunken saloon keeper made a kite of a $500 plate glass 6x10 bar room mirror, tying to it a string of demijohns and brown juijs for a tail. ';The novel kite rose with a rush, and reflecting the rays of the sun, dazzled the eyes of all who beheld it. It focus extended as far as Mammoth, where a hay stack was set on fire by its concentra tion of the sun's rays. The inhabitants of the latter place were greatly alarmed at the singular object in the heavens, one cor respondent comparing it to "a ball of con desed lightning." Unfortunately the saloon keeper's stock of jug and demijohns was not large enough, to supply the necessary counter poise to the heavy mirror, and after ascending to a great hiht with amazing rapidity, it sud Aenly turned and fell with a crash to the earth, breaking into a thousand fragments. It wow transpires that seven men were killed in the Hanford tragedy. The United States Marshal claims to be powerless to en force the law, as there is no appropriation for the pay of Deputy Marshals. The settlers abeut Hanford, at a public meeting held after the affray, passed resolutions holding the rail road company responsible for . the ' tragedy, and pledging their honer to use all honorable means to prevent further bloodshed, and to urge waiting for legal vindication of , their rights. Speeches were made urging the set tiers to stand together in the common cause, and die for their homes if need be. Hart is credited with the statement before his death that Harris, one of the settlers, fired the first hot, wonndiag him in the abdomen. The sympathies f the public rest almost entirely with the settlers. A' Lite Tow. The busy aspect of affairs in Bodie; the rushing to and fro of numerous persons some in search of business places and dwellings to rent, and others desiring to obtain lots on which to erect buildings the demand for building material, all go to show that the people here are imbued with a vast amount of confidence in the future of Bodie and the per manency of our mines. We have not seen a livelier town since Virginia City, Nevada, was in the height of its excitement, and at the same time there is not that noted flash of excite ment here attending a " new find," but a san guine feeling of confidence observed in older business towns. No one of our property men desire te create any undue feeling not war ranted by the actual developments made from day to day in our mines, all seeming content with what they have, and our miners are taking active steps to develop their properties, that they may realize from the actual dividend to accrue from hard labor in extracting their rich aires. Bodie Standard. COMSTOCK WAGES. There are many people of the opinion that the future of Virginia City and the prosperity of the State depends largely upon the ruling rates of wages paid the miners of the Com stock. Of late there has been considerable discussion upon the subject and the conclusion seems to have been reached by almost every body that wages must come down or the time is not far distant when deep mining upon the Comstock must be abandoned. The wages of the miners were fixed when the mines were pouring forth millions in' bullion and stocks were quoted in the thousands. . Now there is not a mine on the ledge whose stock is selling at par or within seventy-five per cent, of it. There is another factor in this proposition to reduce wages, and that is the fall in the price of household provisions. Breadstuff are at least fifty per cent cheaper , than in the flush times, and nearly everything else in propor tion. Although the figures are etill higher than in California, it is nevertheless a fact to day that two dollars will purchase nearly as much as four dollars would at the time Savage, Belcher and Crown Point were paying divi dends. A miner writing to the Gold Hill News suggests that while there is talk of ro duciug miners' wages, it would be well to agi tate the question of a reduction of freight tax iff s on the V. fc T. railroad, and also the rates of the Water Company which furnishes the supply of water for Virginia and Gold Hill. If the miners are to receive less pay, it is certainly no more than fair that other things were reduced in proportion. The rich and the poor alike should be made to contrib ute to the general prosperity. The V. &. T. railroad would soon reap the benefits of the impetus given to mining by a reduction of wa ges. One cannot blame the Miners' Union for refusing to submit to a reduction if the railroad and water companies will not also yield a point or two. If the North End should prove a failure, there io but one thing to do. The monopolies and corporations must stand in with the public for the general good of the country and share the reductions with the working claases, or the coyotes will be burrow ing in the lower levels of the Comstock unmo lested. If such a lamentable result should be brought about, the Comstock will not suffer alone. The property of the railroad company would be comparatively worthless, and the water company could not sell its investment for ten per cent, of its value. These things are worth considering from all standpoints.' It would be an excellent idea for the repre sentatives of both capital and labor to meet and discuss these propositions fairly. If the managers of the railroad company will but deal justly with the question, it is not improb able that the Miners' Uiiim will also be will ing to make reasonable concessions; other wise a dead-lock results, which can only be su icidal to both parties, and utterly ruinous to the State. On the other hand it is possible that the next few weeks will change the en tire aspect of affairs and obviate the necessity of reducing wages at all. The Stock Repoi t has the following on the situatiou: "The North End ia a region of great possibilities. If the ore bodies go to the north it catches them, and who can show any reason why if there is ore in Sierra Nevada, there should not be ore to the northward in Utah. The pitch of the Comstock is to the east. Utah is far enough east on the pitch of the lode to catch a share of anything good that may turn up in its neighbor. The season of assess ments has absorbed coin and hurt the market, but that season is drawing to a close. The nec essary machinery for deep explorations is sup plied, expensive connections are nearly com pleted, the system contemplated for prospect ing the deeper levels is nearly accomplished, the necessity for heavy assessments has passed, and the cost of prospecting w.U be but uomiual as compared with the cost of prepara tion. What Followeb. The temptation to pique and punish unlawful curiosity is one of the strongest the chagrin of the bitten vic tim is so richly deserved. The Louisville Courier Journal says : There were some angry men in a certain Kentucky post-office a few days ago. A postal card was dropped into the letter box addressed to the "Rev. John Puobscot, . It waa an ordiuary card, and the postmaster was an ordinary postmaster. He took it 'up, glanced at the address, turned it leisurely over and read ; .Mat 2, 1879. You, to whom this card ia not addressed, and who, nevertheless, have the cheek to read it, are a contemptible, unprincipled, sneak, and a prying, pusillanimous coward. George F. Dcoan. The postmaster laid the card gently down and lounged to the other end of the house, softly whistling "Nancy Lee." In due time the clerk came upon the card, perused it, and made the neighborhood hideous with the com plainings of his pet dog, which ho kicked in the ribs. How the card fared with the various route agents through whose hands it passed, it is impossible to say; nor do we know whether it was read by the woman who is postmistress of the office where the Rev. John Penobscot is supposed to get his mail ; but the report is that on the dr.y it reached there she smashed a bottle of ink, spanked the children all ronnd and chewed up 65 cents worth of wax. We cannot be to careful never to write on postal cards anything in the delicacy of the post-office people's feelings. - Mat Howard won the pedestrian match at the Mechanic's Pavilion, San Francisco, and the puree of, $1,000, , Madam .
