"That is what we call a Palermo

some years ago that Western silver
miners were caught talcing about $7,000,000
worth of silver into the Nevada

Weil, that is just what is going on in
Palermo to-day with variations. Silver
is bought in San Luis Potosi, Mexico,
or thereabout, shipped to Paris,
then to Palermo, and minted with reasonable
privacy. The dollars, are jumbled

A great deal -of advice, excellent
enough in its way. is being turned
over to C. W. Dillon, the new tax commissioner.

be more specific. Mr. Dillon will
probably have no disposition to resent
this: on the contrary he may
welcome it, not because he needs it
so much as becatlse he is fully aware
of its sincerity. In a very specific
way. doubtless uncomfortable enough
to Mr. Dillon, lie holds the destiny of
the. Republican party in his hands.'
Republicans over the State are therefore
pardonable if they freely advise,
impress upon him the responsibility
of his position and express anxiety
and oven apprehension. Yet Mr. Diliou
does not need this. Nobody in the
State probably so deeply realizes the
responsibility lif the new office and
its important duties as he. And nobody
realized as deeply as Governor
White the necessity of appointing the
right man. The Herald assumes
therefore that Mr. Dillon will exercise
the most scrupulous care in the
appointment of his subordinates. He
is naturally ambitious to triumph, and
it must lie achieved largely in the wisdom
of his selection of men to serve
under hint. Mr. Dillon has a heavy
and not a cheerful task before him.
