KATDROAY HAKCIIO, 18tt.
A SVFK PROPOSITION.
Tlio Carsou Appeal charges jthat laat
Fail every paper in the State, except the
Prohibitionist, was in favor of the lot
tery amendment. "They were com
mitted wholly and unequivocally to the
inertsnro." says the Appeal, "and urged
it in behalf of the State. It was urged
as a mean 11 re of public good and self pro
tection." The Appeal closes its philip
pic ns follows;
"To any paper showing a single line
gainst the lottery scheme, published
in its column prior to January 1st,
1SS9, y retract our statement and pre
sent our humble apologies in advance."
A very safe proposition; for we all
know that the subject was not agitated
previous to Jan. 1, IS8!). The Appeal
in the same article, charges that the In
dependent supported the lottery scheme
lust Kail. Now, it is well-known that
the subject of a lottery was not presented
to the people last Fall; the subject was
not discussed, and there was no occasion
for any paper to take sides either for or
against the measure. The Appeal is
perfectly safe in challenging any paper to
to show a single line against the lottery
scheme, prior to Jan. I, 188!). Inde
pendent. We know of one exception. See the
IkKoonnof March 17,1888. The ques
tion was somewhat under discussion at
the time, and our stand (then taken has
been steadily maintained since.
Most of the pro-lottery papers of the
State, whose stand on the subject was
not at the time supposed to be wholly in
the interests of the dear people, since the
defeat of their project, are far worse in
their "clap trap" about the morality and
sentiment of the thing than were
the non-lottery papers before election.
The proposition was heavily sat upon,
and as the almighty dollar can't rule
everything let the matter rest with the
other defeated proposed changes.
A call for a meeting of the stock
holders of the Utah Central Railroad on
the 25th inst. is made. The object of
the call is to amend the articles of the
association by changing the louthern
terminus of the road and to extend its
corporate franohise from Milford the
present terminus to the western line of
the Territory. This looks favorable for
actual work on the extension to Barstow,
President Harrison's Inaugural address
Is contained at length in the late papers.
It is admired for iU general good sense
by all his supporters. Only his enemies
find it common-place. He has the inter
est of the whole country at heart, and
though nothing is said of silver it does
not follow therefrom that he opposes it.
He will be judged by his future action
in this regard.
Articles of incorporation for the Den
ver and Salt Lake Short Line Railroad
were filed at Denver, Feb. 23. - The ar
ticles of incorporation state that it is the
intention to build a double line track and
also a telegraph line from Denver west
ward to the state line and then across
Utah to Salt Lake andjwill probably con
nect with the Utali Central at l'rovo,
Washington, Montana, North Dakota
and South Dakota will enter the Union
at once as States. The addition of each
of these Territories is regarded as de.
creasing the chanoes of the Democratic
party of return to power. It is just as
well it should be so if that party should
he do better in future than it has in the
i m mediate past.
The raise of ten cents in the Fire De
partment tax will, no doubt, result in a
general inquiry into the standing of that
organization. With an increase in pop
ulation and additional chances of fire oc
curring, it should be kept in readiness
for reliable work on short notice. This
can be easily provided for with the raise
in the tax levied for its support.

It would not be a bad notion to try
what can be done at Nevada's agricul
tural experiment station with our native
tobacco. Two varieties grow here in
Virginia the broad and the narrow leaf.
The broad leaf promises best It puts
out its leaves from a single stalk, and the
leaves are not only larger and more
shapely than the other but also ripen
earlier. The narrow leaf variety sends
up several stalks from one root, and is
much addicted to "suckers," or off
shoots. Both kinds grow here in the
city without cultivation or irrigation.
The tobacco grows in large patches on
ground that has been burned. In China
town last year were to be found stalks
that were three and four feet high.
This, too, without a drop of water. On
a patch of ground that was always wet
no stalk two feet in heicht could h
found. It is not infested by worms. In
examining thousands of stalks last Sum
mer and Fall we did not find a single
worm. We collected and have on hand,
seed of both varities. Undoubtedly the
tobacco would produce larger leaves if
cultivated and topped not allowed to
send up a long flower stalk.
