Waoon Mocm Nov. 12, 18W.
To tlic K'litor ut tlif Las Vpgas Gavtte.
Tlie ediior of the Ril Rh. ( 'hroit
irle iuut 1; a very MnpM ami iuor
aut man, quite unfit to lie tlie con
iluctor of a newspaper.
Iu answer to my appeal to liim for
assistance in settling the Mexican
Land Grants iu this territory, he Lret"
up a long tirade about Carpet Bac
ífera from the East lining appointed to
perpetuate fraud. This is just what I
wish to ayoitl and call upon every
honest man to aid in getting rid of the
nuisance. This editor objects to take
tlie control of the land grant claims
out of the bauds ol the Surveyor Gen
eral. They have now been in the
hands of the Surveyor General's office
lor upwards of twenty yciis, ami
what has been done? Nothing. Tins
fraud-abhoriug editor prints in hi3 pa
per the report of the Surveyor Gener
al, iu which he urges the necessity for
increased facilities to adjust those
claims and have the titles cleared up,
and suggests the appointment of a
commissioner to adjudicate upon
them. He thinks one Carpet Hagger,
as suggested by the Surveyor General,
would be more easily managed than
three and that the fraudulent claims
that arc being negotiated every day
on legitimate laud . rants, made by
the Mexican Government, will have a
better chance of being held by the
knaves who make them, so long as
the question rests in the Land Office
which has no power to settle anything.
A man writes out a description of a
piece of land in aland grant (although
recommended for confirmation to the
origiuai owner by the Surveyor Gen
eral's office) makes out his own title,
iu fact, registers it and thinks the land
his own. There is not a rogue in the
universe who docs not persuade him
self that he is the owner of another
man's property, if he can get possess
ion of it. This is the class this hones'
editor desires to protect and thinks
his best course is to accuse the oppo
site party of fi and. An open court,
where the evidence could be sifted by
opposing lawyers employed by every
interested party,is too searching a pro
cess to moot hi honest approbation.
The idea that Congress, for such a pur
pose, must send three Carpet Daggers
has seized hold of his brain and he
can see no further and does not wish
to. Suppose they did send three Car
pet Daggers, the evidence in cachease
being produced and compleied by tlie
attorneys in court, an appeal to the
supreme court would make the Carpet
Daggers nonentities like himself. If
Congress appoints three Judges for
the purpose of settling these claims, 1
have no doubt it will send men lit to
lili the office with credit to themselves
and do justice at the same time to all
concerned in land, and if, in addition,
they had the power to hang every
dishonest newspaper editor they
would confer a double benefit on the
community.
Yours,
V"m. Pinkkrton.
P. S. 1 am quite willing that all
fraudulent, land grant claims should
be punished as severely as you jilease,
provided all fraudulent claims against
legitimate grants shall be punished in
an equal ratio.
Odds and Ends.
"There is no place like home," re
peated Mr. Ilenpeck, looking at a
motto, and he heartily added: "I'm
ladg there isn't."
We think we have solved the prob
lem, Where do all the pins go to?
They go to waist. Any young gen
tleman whose arms has encircled a
feminine waist has easily found one or
more of Ihein,
Swinburne believes that a strong
minded woman who usurps man's
place and throws mud is not. entitled
to that consideration from men which
is shown toward a "woman woman
ly," and that she must expect to re
ceive mud in return.
That was a very pointed and nossi
bly a very wholesome bit of sarcasm
when a gentleman turned on a cox
comb who had been making himself
ofiensive, aud said: "Sir, you ought
'o be the happiest man in the world;
you are in love with yourself and you
have no rival."
Kissing is somewhat like scveu-up.
If he begs and she thinks she can make
points in the amo she will give him
one. New York Express. Dnt un
less diamonds are trumps aud one or
the other holds a lmndtul, somebody
will get euchered a few years hence
--though we believe there is no such
thing as 'etichriug" iu the game of
scven-up. The deuce will be to pay,
anyhow. Norrislown Herald. Oh,
whist ! If honors are' are easy, there'll
be no trouble at all, never miud, what,
