Wc have boon unable lo get much
iutorimition a to wlicn the Pine creek
Itoad Commissioners will begin work
on tho road. At dm present time
there 1ms beon nothing of any conse
luicnco done, "We arc informed that
the survey made by Grillitlis has been
found very defective, ho failing to tile
un estimate of costs of construction,
etc. , which , in tho estimation of the
Hoard, will necessitate tho employ
ment of u competent surveyor to go
over the lino and make the estimate of
the Joust before they can ndvcrtlce for
bids intcligeutly. With all due defer
ence to tho Hoard, we don't look at it
in that light. That course would no
ccsjitnto tho expenditure of a thousand
or two dollars of tho appropriation,
which is sotting beautifully less every
day, and delay tho completion of the
road several montln. "We believe the
proper course is to advertise at once
for bids to construct the entire road,
and givo it to the lowest responsible
bidder, if bis bid is within the bounds
of the money on hand, which there is
but little doubt It would bo, but if it
is not, they would be under no obliga
tions to accept it. Wc cannot see
where tho expenditure of probably a
thousand dollars for a cost-ostimate
would bo of any particular benefit to
tho commissioners. It certainly
would not lessen the cost of construct
ing tho road, and probably would not
be taken into much consideration by
would be contractors, who generally
judge for themselves. If tho road is
to be built at all, the sooner it is
done tho better. We would like to
sec tho commUsiouors wake up. ad
vertise for bids, and see that as good
u road, as the appropriation will
admit of, is put through to the l'ine
week mines at once.
Tin: democratic primaries wore held
in linker county on the (ith inst. In
linker City the delegates on what was
known as tho "Dealy ticket" wcr"
cleetod to attend the convention on
tho 1ith. Wo suppose tho delegates
wcro plodgcd to support J. T. Donly
for sheriff . This is an illustration of
how tho wire pullers get in their work
at tho primaries, which usually re
sults in ono of two things: The,
party ut lurire is compelled to vote for
ii man who is not their choice, or ro
fU6o to support him at all, thereby
giving tho ollleo to tho opposition. A
delegate that will plcdgo himself to
voto for any particular cnndjdnlo in
tho convention, is not lit to be there,
and should not bo sent. Wo notice
that the principal tight h for tho clerk
and sheriff the olllcos that should
concern tho people least of any.
When more attention is paid to -jotting
good commissioners, representa
tives, Judge and assessor, whoso
actions are of vital importance to tho
people, and lets to the nbovo named
olllcos, which aro of more Importance
to tho occupants than to any one elso,
a bottei Atuto of affairs will be ob
borvable. STOCK ASSOC I A TtOX.
As will be seen by record of pro
ceedings published clsuwhoro In this
papar, tho stock growors, anil farm
ers of Union county, have formed mi
association for tho protection of do
mestic animals, and to prevent the
Introduction of contagious diseases,
of whatever character, among thmu,
He,, and to enforce the laws of tho
Htato referring to the samo. This Is
a good movo, and will doubtless
prove u great bouutlt, not only to
stock growers, but to (ha community
ut largo. Only by tho utmost vigi
lance audi exertion un tho part of
those' interested in any particular lino
of Industry, can the best results be
obtained. As stock growing is one
of tho principal Interests of this
section of the state, it Is to bo hoped
that tho association Will speedily at''
(pi ire tv largo membership and iU
sphere of usefulness bo widened.

Ik there is a man in tho Uiiilct
States deserving of the eulogies and
enconiums of the entire people, it is
Land Commissioner Sparks. He
seems to bo utterly impervious to the

To honor and support such a man

It is said the Mormons tiro -ontom
plating a most daring move. Hereto
fore they haro principally selected the
territories in which to live. From
Utah they have branched out to Idaho,
Now Mexico and Arizona. Like all
residents of territories, they are un
der direct control of congress and
amenable to laws passed by Wash
inirton. The rigidity of tho laws
against polygamy, and tho unrelent
ing enforcement of them by the federal
courts in Utah, haVo forced tho prob
lem on the Mormons of how to escape
from tho control of the federal author!
ties. If they controlled a stato by a
majority vole, it is thought bv some
that tho solution Would be found.
nicy would then ho free from the ni-
terferauco of congress, and might car
out their polygamous practice in
dotlaiieo of federal law. It is said
that Nevada Is tho field selected in
which Mormonlstn will, In the end,
make Its delimit, stand against the gen
oral government for the perpetration
of its institutions, Their proposal to
attain this position is by ait linmigra
(ion into the stato suttlcietit to com
maud n majority at (lie polls. Once
oniinant there, with the power of
making and administering tho local
aw, their situation will bo ono of pre
eminent vantage, and they will have
onlisted for their protection tho whole.
forco of tho Mate's rights doctrinc
rhat they have not yd inado a direct
move in this direction is dlto, not to
their inr.hllity in several years past,
but to tho fact that thoy have every
thing to gain by delay. While the
population of Nevada has been dimin
ishing, tho Mormons have been aug
menting by an average yearly addition
of 'JOUU converts) and by natural in
crease, tho result of phlral marriages
and the prolitlcness of the healthy,
agricultural people who compose their
rank and lllo, such a colonization can
