nTvnox ocroBBK in, ins, FRWE. Ia ooutnwtlog lot Dosuaec icr Got- i-nor, the Carsbn Appeal has the follow ing y in rpgu.l to th Republican eanliiUt: C Stevenson represents tht style ot mc who ar to-ly and 1 tae -kcs lor years usvcjoping Nerad. Jla caws ia this Stats a poor nan, and for quarter of a century has (ought mr. fluccessfully too, tbe hard battle for la tost ms mart tight in Nevada. Ditr- inj( t!iU time he has nsrer swerved from V.e elsa path of faocwty, and his deal i M.ta hts neighbor have been always r.-l upon the squar?H basiaess pria- litring this qaarter of a century now l.izg away, C. C. Stevenson has in verted, speculated, developed tbe country ai.'t unproved iti condition. lie has tiff. large amounts of money in circular tum and paid out to wage-workers 3,. OOn.oOO. His ambition bis not been a political one; he has aimed to make this State better for man to live in. lie has delved in the bowels of the earth, he has bu.it flumes, tilled land, made grass and tc grow where none grew before, and mide the face of nature more pleasant to look at wherever his busy foot has trod. Under his wand of enterprise, houses hihve sprung from the ground, hearth -tones have Mated with light, the family pot kept boiling and the wolf of want kept from the door of thousands. . A man like C. C. Stevenson is the liv ing emblem of State pride and State pro gress. He belongs to the intelligent pio neers of tbe sagebrush who have made the deesrt bloassom and 61 led the air with the live hum of industry. It is not ncc oejsary for all to know C. C. Stevenson. Ilia works proclaim Lim on every side. Tbe clamor of the stamp mill, the dash tbe water wheel, thn clatter of the ! reaper and the light laughter of Che em ' ployed, all tell of C. C. Stevenson's pres ence in this State. When any great en terprisc is to be managed there is a gen oral caljl for C. C. Sttvenvm to take the i helm. He har managed greet enterprises ' for years and headed publio govern aient ! fot the State's good. In the early days buyers and sellers j did not for a long time recognise any diBerenoe in tne value ol diuerent classes of gold doss. The first gold disvovered by Marshall and his associates was sold ', for $6 an ounce, bat ere long rose to $16. and remained at that figure for years) Then no more difference was recognized in gold dust than to-day in different sande, Bayers would mis their dust when sent to the mint and were paid an average price for it, but they afterward leaned that some dual was worth 99 nd other $20 or more. The difference in value is oow known to be doe to the fact that a greater or leas amount of the baser metal; eilver, copper, etc. in always found in alloy with gold in its native state. Wood River Times. , A correspondent of the Sasramento Record-Union, writing from Coloma, El Dorado county, says that a miner by the name of Jacob War?, struck a pocket tn a porphyry ridge, a few miles beyond that town, which promises to make him rich. It ia on the summit of a hill two mile cast of the mouth of Dutch Creek. He has to carry the pay dirt, or rotten porphyry, on his back two miles oyer a steep hillside, but it - pays him one hundred dollars a sack, lie has takes out over 5,000, and, like Colonel Sellers, he thinks therms "mil lions in it" yet. Tbe old Flint district pear Silver City, Idaho, which waa abandoned for years. , is experiencing quite a revival. The Ava lanche says there is a great deal el work being done in tbe camp, and ore that as- , aaja 81,000 par ton is being extracted - sad shipped from tbe rerseveranes. The ftisiog Star company has over one hun dred men at work and taking all in all Flint ie one of tlie liveliest camps In Idaho.

Tje He publicans of NtaJ, in con vention atembled. reaffirm their unfal tering loyalty to the principles of the party aa enumerated in thir nsuonal platform, from Lincoln to Blaine. We believe that liberty ia the inalienable right of every man, whatever his race or ooior, sua iu tue equality oi every man before the law, with ifte cn restricted right of every citizen to cast bis vote for whomsoever fce choose, with the aa. urance that it will ba counted bj. cut The preservation of the Union aad tree government are now recorded in history as the work ef the Remibiican nartv. Union, liberty, equality and s protective wiu nn uirgeiy coninouwa ot making 60,000,000 cf people the bt fed, the oes. clothed, ttie happiest, the most in telligent and powerful that ever existed on earth. The elevation of labor by the abolition of slavery and the utter repu diation of caste and aristocracy by the Republican party has opened to free men and free labor every acre of laud within the jurisdiction of the United States, and hvt enabled the toiling million of the North and of the South to associate in one common brotherhood for the pro tection of their riclits and the advance ment of their intellectual acd material prosperity. li. We arrauu the Democratic adminis tration of 1'reaident Cleveland for hiving failed to keep the pledges on which it came into power. It promised economy and retrenchment, and has been most extravagant in expenditures aud ap propriations, which, for the current year, largely exceed the abundant revenues uf the government. It promised to reduce the surplus in the Treasury, but revers ing the rule of previous Administrations, has permitted such surplus to lie idle and acu mutate to the injury oi the busi ness of the country, and has refused to approve of the action of a lanre majority oi both Houses of Congress directing that such surplus be applied in payment of wjb i.iicr-t-Mearjii3 oeus oi me country. It promised to care for and give atten tion to the disabled soldiers and sailors of the late war, and bas treated with ooutcwiptunua veto every pennon bill against which it cmilij fmd any iLidow of technical objection. It promised te protect the person and property of citi zens both at home and abroad, and to maintain the dignity aud honor oi the nation, yet in its relation with Great bntam it has shown lUtlf unwilling to give protection to cither person or prop erty, and has permitted our tlag to be insulted, witaout proper protest, almost in sight of our shore, while by hasty and unseemly action it has unneueasanlv jeopardized our friendly relations with Mia .uciicau itcpuouc, anu mace our nation ridiculous in tbe eyes of the world. Its evasion of civil service re form, to which its leading representatives are pledged, have been bold, insolent and lawless. It has shown itself no friend to Nevada, because, among its rirst act of administration, it closed the Cuited States Mint in Carson City, in utter violation of the law, to the great detriment of every miner and silver producer in this State in particular, and of the public in general. It has seriously impaired our mail facilities, without shadow of just excuse. It has outraged the express will of Congress, and denied to thn people their rights by its unexplained and con tiuued refusal to execute the law for the erection of a Government building in tbe capital ot this .State. It has used the entire power of the Administration to destroy silver as money, and by a refusal to execute the law and pay out silver for Government dues has kept the metal out oi circulation, and by arious devices it bas reduced the price of silver since the inauguration of President Cleveland more than fifteen per cent. It has closed many of our silver mines, and thrown thousand of honeflt laborers out of employment. ill, We favrr a tariff upon the imported products of low priced ioreicu labor, so ae to protect the interests ot American wage-workers, and for the development of American industries. We demand in behalf of our mining i uteres t the main tenance ot the present tan If on lead, borax, eoua ana other mineral produc tions, and in behalf of our wool-growing interests, a restoration of the wuol tanlf of 18C7, and we denounce the recent at tempt of the Democratic majority in the National House of lie present at ives to pans the Morrison bill red nana the tariff on the products of our mines aud placing woui un (lie nee use IV. We believe m American soil for Amer ican citizens, and are opposed to non-re ce dent aliens becoming landowners. Tho public domain should be reserved as homesteads for actual settlers, and the accumulation of large tracts or bodies of land in the hands of corporations or in dividuals shoul be discouraged, and in the case of land grants to railroad cor porations where the corporations have failed to comply with tbe conditions of tho grants, tbe land should be forfeited to the General Government, and held for the beueut ot actual settlers, V. We favor the intollizout orjanizatioo of labor for such worthy purposes us mu tual education and for the protection of their interests in all tliinzn relating to their welfare and to the industrial wel fare of the country, nud we favor the enactment of Stato and Nati.mil laws providing for the settlement of contro versies between employers and employes orby methods of voluntary arbitration or oy tne cataoustiment ot courts ot con oialition, which will avoid the watte. loss and ill-feelinir resulting from strikes and lockoutu, and th nju-il expf-mn of litigation. VI. We denounce the action of the Demo cratic House of Representatives at its It it seSbiGn in striking from the bill U j Compensate t!ie ciLizeoa of this 8Ute for j lows msiaiiied in the Indian war of lt-00, all claim for supplies furnished for th; supprewioD nt Indian hostilities, and , aJK for services rendered during that ; roernorab.e strophe in which the lives of a lart cumber cf our most respected i citizens were sacrificed. 1 VII. We denoccee the pretense of the Denr ocratic party of having sympathy for the cs.uce oi icrai Mir government m Ireland while t!-e Democratic House of Represen t stive, id Committee of the Whole, re paifUy refused to indorse that prin ciple. In the months of April and Jnne ih.t mat nooy, ty democratic votes, on several oeeations rejected a resolution indnrsirg a fren Parliament for Irelsnd, " ' me juiiuwiug wonts: "Kesolved. That the House ofP.epre RTTitfitiiTs csrnestlv avmnathizca with Kis'iit Hon. William fc. Gladstone and his stikoc:ates in their efforts to secure a ire remanent tor the people of Ireland, and congratulate the people of that hitherto unhappy country upon the proa pect of an ebtly and unsuccessful ter minttion of their long and patriotic airuggte lor ins ngni ot local self-government." , Thereby discouraging the growth of a liberal spirit throughout Great Britain. VIII. We enmmeud tire efforts of Senator Jones and Congressman Wood burn in obtaining au appropriation of 30,000 for public land surveys in this State, and we condemn the action of the Com missiooer of the General Land Office in withholding money sappropriated for that purpose, and particularly condemn the action of .Senator Fair in absenting him self from Washington during all the time when appropriations for this State were under consideration by the Senate. IX, Wo endorse the action of Senator Jones and Congressman Woodburn in their c2orts to suppress polygamy in Utah, and to check the growth of disloyalty to ma government in mat lemtory, and we fully endorse the principles 'of the bdl introduced for that purpose bv Con gressman Woodburn. We endorse the action of the Republican Senate in pass ing in the early days of the last session oi Congress a bill will calculated to sup press the growing evil of poly gs my, and check the growth of the hostile power of the Mormon Church, which is threaten icg the peace and tarnishing the good name of the Cnited States. We con demn the action of the Democratic House of lie present at ives in refusing during stl the long session of Congress, which has just closed, to consider any measure tend- iug iu relieve our country iromine ought ing curse of polvcamv and nolvcamotu rule iq Utah and the surroucdiog Terri Wo aro opposed to the further im portation of Chinese to this country, or any other foreign laborers, under the contract system, snd we favor any plan for the relief of free labor from compe tition with convict labor, which does not impose upon free Labor the ezpeose of supporting convicts in idleness and useless labor. And we favor the adop tion of laws providing for the protection of workers in our mines and other hazard ous callings, and such other measures as will improve tbe msterial and social wel fare of our industrial population. We arc earnestly opposed to the doctrine or the so called Anarchists, and we believe in the most perfect protection to each and every individual in the enjoyment of the fruits of all his personal etlorta to cam an bouest livelihood. XL The paramount interest of civilization requires that the mouey used as a cir culating medium in any country shall at all times bear a constant ratio of tho in creasing population of that country. Contraction of the currency involves all nnancia. evils to which a nation can be subjected, among which are robbery of the debtor, stagnation of business, re duction of wages and tbe enslavement of the masses for the benefit of bondholders and grasping creditors. We denoouce the bondholders' conspiracy to demone tize silver and contract the money of the world tg a single gold standard as a crime against civilization. It would double the obligation of bonds and all other contracts for the payment of money, which now aggregate in the civil ized world the enormous sum of more than one hundred thousand million dol lar?, and thereby make the rich richer ana tne poor poorer, and impoverish the mason for the benefit of a favored few. We are, therefore, in favor of the free and unlimited coinage of both gold and silver upon the basis now provided by law. XII. We condemn the Democratic House of Representatives for refusing to make the necessary appropriations for the eon. struction of a suitable navy for the de tense oi our commerce ana the protection of our citizens at borne and abroad, and wc pMticularly condemn it for refusing to make any appropriation for fortitl cations to protect our extensive seaooast while there was a vast surplus in the Treasury, and thousands of laborers oat of employment. XIII. We sain declare our constant sym pathy with the just and consistent Re publicsn policy and practice of granting out of the nation's abundance generous pensions to the disabled veterans of our wars, whether for the country's defense or for the preservation of the Union. Wc protest against the removal from official places of worthy and disablsd Union Huldiers to make way for partisan civilian and cx-Con federates. XIV. In common with all loyal people of the land, mo mourn the loss to our country of the heroic dead, and especially that Btvit Kcpublican, as well as great soldier and statesman, Ulysses 8- Grant. His life will forever be an inspiration to high and honorable manhood, natriotio devo tion to our country and loyalty to the principles of licpablicauiim which he so fittingly represented and did so much to auvatice. m e snail ever treasure his memory and cherish his deeds. XV. It is the duty of this 8tate to maintain free schools, not only in towns and thickly pepu'ated sect ions, but in the rural and sparely settled districts, and aa tbe edu cation of pupils in the sparsely settled sections of the State is necessarily more expennve per capita than where a large nu rarer or pupus can attend the name school, such a divuioa of the school money shoeld be made as wll furnish the means of education to all children in the Mate. XVI. Fxpenditures beyond the means of private individuals are required for sur veys, engineering and the construction of reservoirs, canals and other hydraulic works, for the purpose of irrigation iit mis aute. e, therefore, favor liberal appropriations by Congress for surveys, both hydrographical and topograph icai. to ascertain how the waters of to is dtete, which now run to waste in flood time, may be stored and utilised for the pur pose of agriculture, to the end that when ail the facta are known, suitable aid may be obtained from Congress to enable the Government of tha VnttrA StatM s dispose uf its lands, and to enable the people to settle upon and occupy tbe aame. XVII. Resolved, That two years.' Axnrian has demonstrated that the present jury law, which compels citizens, at their own expense, without regard to their pecuniary unity or me losses tney may sutler, summarily to susrjend their nuial oc cupations, break their businera engage incuts, travel long aistances and remain from their homes for an uncertain nmnml and attend upon District Courts as jury men, ts a measure of unwise economy, often productive of great hardship and an ucjuat imposition of public burdens upon private individuals. We, therefore demand of the next Legislature such legislation as shall secure to all oitisens fair compensation for all the time which they spend, and full reimbursement for an expenses which they incur in per forming tbe duties of jurymen in the District Courts. XVIII. Resolved, That we point with pride and pleasure to the able and brilliant record made by our Senator in GYngrese, the Hon. John P. Jones, in his watchful and vigtlant care of our interests upon all occasions, as are fully shown by his un answearable speeches in Congress against tbe reduction of duties opon foreign man ufactures and foreigh productions, which exposes in a masterly style and in a clear and forcible manner the free-trade doc trices of modern Democracy. Hia able and exhaustive speeches upon tbe re monetiaation of silver, particularly tbe last speech in Congress upon that subject ! in which be has displayed mora strongly his ability to render tbe abstruse subjects i intelligent to the most common mind, thereby replacing and upholding the old time-honored American dollar of our fathers in its rightful position aa part of our circulating medium and purenssiog power, and his logical and overwhelming arguments in favor of the passage of the Chinese Restriction and Exclosiun bill, and amendments thereto, during tbe last Congress, Resolved, That our able Representative in Congress, the Hon. William Wood burn, deserves the united thanks cf the people of this State for his constant teal and watchful care over the true interests of the people of this State and that we recognize in him an able statesman, a faithful Representative and an bouest man, snd we say: "Well done, thou good and faithful scrvantj renewed honors await thee." AMENDMENT. We believe it is the duty of the Na tional Government to paaa laws regulat ing the great railroad corporations of the country, protecting the people from ex tortions and unjust discrimination, and we approve the principles of the bill passed by the United States Senate, known as the Cultom hill, and urgeoer Senators and Representative in Congress to have the aame grafted upon our na tional law, Kesolved, That we demand that the oext Lngislsture shall pass laws in ae cordance with the plan known as tb Nebraska plan for the election of United States Senator.
