THE STATE OUSEVADA.
Ox the eastern side of IheSierraNo
vada lies a hundred thousand square
" miles of desolate country, stretching
eastward to the Wahsitoa, aal ex
tending from the 42nd to the b2nd
parallel of north latitude. It is a
land" where no jivera flow, nor taoist-
tire falls, where sharp shining quartz
and sand are shone on by eternal sun
and stars, and rarely. fallsthe grate
ful shadow of a cloud. Itssurfaoeis
wholly made up of isolated mountain
spurs with narrow valleys between.
sln the valleys are a few scattered
3 ranohes where potatoes and oats are
" attempted to be grown; on the mou-
tain sides are the deserted mines tba',
for twenty years made the country
the marvel of the earth.
F Originally a part of Utah territory?
thit great stretch of country of which
wa speak, was, in 1861, made a terri
tory, and in October 1861, given the
dignity of a state. A greater mistake
was never made. But for twenty
vears the mistake weighed no more
"heavily on its inhabitants than did
"'the reverses of fortunes that they
looked upon as something only in
tended to heighten the good luck
that was 3ure to come. Whether
working in bonanza or borrasca
whether calling the turn and sweeps
ing the board, or fattening the bank,
the -average Nevadan neither knew
nor cared for the future. There was
always a S20 piece for any one that
wanted it, tmd the hills were full of
Ten years ago two mines alone wre
paying dividends of 2,160,000 per
month. But the days of the Con.
Virginia are over. There is no more
Raymond & Ely nor Meadow Valley,
aad poor Nevada is like a sucked or
ange. Not in the palmiest era of 'tbe
days of '49" in California was there
seen such lavish life, such generoas-
ness, such careless disregard for the
future as characterize J the men and
women of Nevada in the days when
every one was-rich, present or pros
pective. Now the evil d ya are upon the sil
rer state and the tide of wealth no
longer surges through her rocky can
yons. It is low water mark all over
the state, and scattered from Mazat
lan t'j Sitka are the men that
male Nevada for twenty years" the
freest, jolliest, richest state in the
Her present condition, apart from
the saJ state of her fallen fortunes.
Is a burlesque on state autonomy.
We are s accustomed to see prog
ress in every one of the American re
publics that make up the nation
known as the United States, that any
thing like retrograde movement sur
prises us. We read the censns re
turns and note with pride that the
state in which we were born or in
which we reside, has so many hun
dred thousand more people, and so
many million more dollars of wealth,
and w- feel that is a 1 right; that is.
as it should bp, but when, as in the
casa of poor fallen Nevada, the glitter
of the star is obscured b the cloud
of poverty, we all feel as though there
was something radically Wrong and
from all the galary of the remaining
thirty-seven goes up a universal crv
of "Put her out."
What for? Granted that it was a
mistake to make a state of .Nevada,
"once a stnte, always a state." It's
' no disgrace for a state to be poor,
though as in the case of individuals,
. it's very inaonvenient Don't put Ne
, vada out Give the giddy thing a
chance to sober up end go to work
and fight the hard times that have
overtaken her. She has been flush
ed with wine, but it was the wine of
success an 3 .not of debauchery.
When tho nation needed coin to
make and keep its credit. Nevada was
the nation's strong bes: she has con
tributed thousands of millions to the
solid enduring wealth of the world;
now when misfortune comes upon
her shall she be thrust back from the
sisterhood of states? Let those who
so justly argue that Dakota and
Washington should be admitted
. bear in mind that it is just as wrong
to thrust Nevada backward on the
threshold of territorialism as it is to
keep stronger sisters there. Let
them also remember that it is the
amo political policy (although party
reversed) that keeps Washington and
(Dakota out that pulled Nevada in.
Eastern editors and a few from this
sundown slope are clamoring for the
"extinguishment" of Nevada. On
'.'this coast at least every man should
raise jiis voice in protest against such
,& ; S;!8 reaa in ancieut history of
YjjjjriBeligarius, the great general, -blind
w Kidjbegging his daily bread in the
,v" F tity that he had eared from the to,
and we execrate the ingratitude of
his fellow citizens. But we have a
parallel. A great general, a man who
was at the head of our victorious
armies, and who dictated peace at Ap
pomattox, is -now in his pennlines?
old age writing for the Century mag
azine to earn money for bread. The
nntion called him from the army six
teen years ago to take the chair as
president. It should now put him
back as general of the army. Grant
refuses a pension, but he should have
his old position. It is but right, and
the nation will honor itself ' by plac
ing the bravd old man where he was
before he was called to the "White
