aVTCBDAY.. MARCH 1U, ! MlUtl PRICE. The fn trader eriet "iive hi cheaper wool, cheaper lead, obwper iron, chemper agar. You can do it if you remuva the duties." A kog time ago there were no dutiee on thoae articles. Many of our middle-aged men and all our older ones remember that time. A suit of woolen eiutbei is not more ooUy now than then; neither ia lead, nor iron, nor atcei. We uej on an average twice as much augar per capita at we did ther, when reBned amgar waa oonaidered a rare luxury. But labor ia higher sow than then. The far mer also gets higher prion for bta chick na, efcKs potato, butter, cheeaa, milk and nearly ever)-thiog be producei. Why? Because there is a market now where there was none than. The workman in the pn-tctfd industries, buy the farm products at noma, paying far better prices than cnnlJ be obtained from the Euro pean workmen after freighting to the aea and across it. This home market of sixty million intelligent and comparatively lux. nrions livers, consumes mora manufact ured products than two hundred millions of Europeans of the same classes. This ia the market that the Cobden club of England wanta thrown open to English manufacturers. But when this market is so thrown open the workmen in the factories will no longer have a market for their goods. They will be cut out by cheap labor. They will have either to migrate or go to farming. The price of the principU export product, wheat, ia falling in the market of the world year by year. They might raise enough of other products for their own consump tion. In ltsa than three years we would fcu when ws were before wo adopted the tariff system. It would take more than two times three yean after its re. adoption to regain what we had lost Ex periattoe is said to be a good teacher .Juatory it nid to npeat itself. If that be true and our memory fails us not the tariff will probably remain for a time. ItrVB TUB TKACUssS CBAKCC The thought occurs to us that while no Softool teacher is perfect, and while ours vf Hocho doubtless have their faults like all other human beings, yet it would be well for parents to remember that their children an not perfect. When a child oomes home from school with a complaint too parent hears one side of a story. The natural sympathies of the parent go out to the child, and a very natural predju- dioa immediately arises against the teacher. The parent ia hardly to blame for a hasty thought that the teacher has abused the child. That is a part of human nature. It is one of our defects of which we cannot divest ourselves. But the parent ia to blame if, when he baa tin for reflection, he does not make a close and impartial investigation, have a quiet and friendly talk with the teacher if ho feels aggrieved, and learn the truth of tha matter. Then if the child is wrong for every child is many times wrong give a reproof and reqoire an acknowl edgement of the fault. It will do him or her good. If on tha other hand the teacher has erred, which is very seldom tha ease, we ehould remember that it is human to arr, that each of us has made mistakes, and some perhape vary serious ones. The teacher has no earthly reason for wishing to injure your child. She cannot help having an interest in the welfan of every pupil. It ia but natural that ahe should. The parent who loves his child should not do that child the in jutioa of sooonraging it against its teacher; and tha parent who has self-re-spect and a proper regard for others, will not maks the heavy burden of a teacher's its more heavy by continual petty com plaints. On the Qth. inst Ssnator Stewart pre sented in tha Senate, a petition from the eitiaoM of Lincoln County, Nevada, ask ing that tha tariff on wool and lead re main undisturbed. This exactly accords with tha views of tha people of this county Ws believe in protection on these artieln for protection's sake. But s wars not awara that a petition to that tffeot had been circulated hen. Col. David E. Buell died reoeutly in St, Louis. CoL Buell was at old Coaster and a prominent figtn in Nevada in rly daya.

During ths late snow-storm in Trinity county. Cat., an enormous land slide on Morrison gulch carried away a placer mine and all improvements into Coffee creek, half a mile a way.

Public Murals la Enrka, A committee appointed by the Grand Jury of Eureka county, reports ss ful-1 lows: I Your Committee on Public Moral hav ! ing had the matter ondor consideration, ! and after a careful investigation, respect fully submit ths following report: That a number of the proprietors of saloons in our town, contrary to the statutes made aud provided are permitting youug boys of the age from 14 to 18 years to visit aud engage in various games, frequently re maining until 11 o'clock in the evening at their establish meats. We feel confi dent if the proprietors above referred to would only consider for a moment, they would see wtut an injustice they are do ing to these youths, but also to their parents, and not permit this state of affairs to exist any longer. Y e also find that the statute prohibit ing the giving or selling of cigarettes to youths uuder the age of 17 years is openly violated daily in our midst Therefore your committee would earnestly request the nhentf of Eureka county, aud all other officers, to use all due diligence to preveut all violations of ths statue in such cases made and provided. We also recommeud that the District Attorney, the Sheriff and hia deputies, pay strict attention to the "400-yard" law, and also to the "curfew" law, and see that the law be strictly enforced in both cases.

Independent give the followinif particular of the duel at that place. The recent terrible tragedy enacted on the piuturestjue shores of Newman Lake, au inlaud idieet of water of some extent between here and the Idaho tine, and about twenty-four miles from this city, has been the topic of owaver&atiua in tbis neighborhood fur several da) a. The cir cumstances uhicb led up to the triple lues of life wen brought by the cause that has beeu prevalent in the great West ever since land or property has had a value that of claim-jumping. Mr. Bar ton Mills of Spokane Fails, a young man highly respected, with a bride of a year and a half, daughter of H. N. Muzzy, a prominent citizen of the city, some three years ago located a homestead on the land in dispute. Iu every particular when an honest intent in the spirit if not in the letter of the law could Iw made, Mr. Mills bad endeavored by improving his ranch to hold bis title good. Laat week, dur ing a temporary absence from the land, while visiting his wife in Spokane, two claim-jumper uamed Audnw and Henry Clark entered upon his ground and took possession. L. L. Muzzy, brother-in-law of Mr. Mills, who was near the scene, remonstrated with the jumpers. Their answer was, "If Mills wants the laud let him rustle in and take it from us." Mr. Muzzy reported these facts to Mr. Mills in Spokane. Mr. Mills nixed his Winchester, saying, "Rustle in it is,' repaired to his ranch aud immediately opened fired on the jumpers. I K. Muzzy followed, and what part he took in the deadly encounter is not at present known. The supposition is, however, that Mr. Mills killed Andnw Clark at the first shot, then wounded Henry Clark, who fired at Mr. Mills, putting a bullet through his heart The jounsr Clark, Henry, after being twice wound J, ended his earthly career by blowiug tbe top of his head off with his own revolver. It was a duel to the death by three men, who exhibited the utmost bravery, and whose life-blood now irrigates the soil of' a piece of wild land, which Under Sheriff Duncan of this county informed our correspondent was not worth the cartridges wasted in ths deadly affray. Two widows now mourn the loss of heroic husbands, whose life should have been sacrificed in a nobler cause. But there is a principle underlying all this which the lax laws of the United States by a careful revision and more liberal rulings might remedy. It shows to the outside world what value is placed upon land in this portion of Uncle Sam's broad do main, aud of what material the settlers of this county an made. Keceutly Mrs. R. Mothner wanted to go to the theater. Her husband, who is engaged in merchandising, had just banded her S-'-OO. She wanted to put the money where the burglars could not find t, so she hid it in the cooking -stove. Next morning when she finally awoke it was to learn that here treasure was no mon. The cook had come early and, making a hot fire, proceeded with the task of cooking breakfast. The good natored husband did nothing the next day but curse cooks, cooking-stoves. operkhouses and burglars. The wife is in tears. Tex ark an a dispatch to N. O. Times.
