The display of Washoe county pro ducts in the state Board of Trade rooms on Market Street is attracting considerable attention because Many who saw it had never heard of Washoe county before. I went to the Exposi Tion the other Day and registered As a citizen of Carson Nevada. Or. Smith one of the officers of the Board who was very cordial wanted to know what the news from Carson was and How the people generally were getting on.

Thompson who so kindly helped in placing the Washoe county exhibit in our rooms gave one of our men full information about the county but he has been sick for a month and we have not been in a position to answer the questions that the display called Forth. They have printing offices up there Haven t they i should think they would get up some kind of a de scrip their Validity Arird la the supreme court. On tuesday says the Carson a peal the Case of the Validity of the constitutional amendments passed upon by the legislature of 1885 came up before the supreme court. Amend ments 1 and 8 were chosen As the ones on which the Case was to be made. Amendment 1 provides that the legislature shall Convene on the third monday of january instead of the first and amendment 8 provides that the office of lieutenant governor shall be abolished. Attorney general Alexander argued in favor of the Validity of the Amend ments and Jud the Wells private Secretary of governor Stevenson opposed them. It was held that there were two Rea sons for invalidating the amendments. First they had not been properly Jour Nali Zed and nest they bad not been properly advertised. General Alexander held that the question of Journ Lizins was vague and that the strict letter of the Law had been modified. The question of Adver Tising general Alexander considered had been complied with by the Adver Tising of and it was therefore not necessary to again advertise in 1888, As the voters already had read them. Judge Leonard asked the very Perti nent question what a voter was to do who had not been in the state when marriage of a. J. Taylor and miss Annie Cook. The ceremony was performed at the episcopal Church by the Rev. We. Lucas in the presence of a goodly number of the elite of Reno miss Gertie Peacock acting As bridesmaid and Seymour Upson As Best Man. The Bride was dressed in Blue nun s veiling with handsome draperies of Spanish Guipre lace looped with clusters of Orange blossoms and wore ornaments Send it with such the expense of printing would naturally fall on the live pamphlet and exhibits As this. Local Board of Trade. What no Board of Trade no the first publication was made and the Learned counsel Subj tested that in that Case he had better not vote if he could not ascertain what the amendment which was Only numbered on the ticket referred to.

T., has been selected As the Point unction for the Canadian Pacific Seattle Lake Shore Eastern the former Road will build fifteen Miles to the Boundary and the i Seattle company will build the rest. Chamber of Commerce no Mer chants league nothing of that kind you astonish me. Why in California and in nearly All the other states every Little one horse town or Village even has a Board o Trade to help advertise advantages. I should t think such a county As you represent Washoe to be would feel contented to let so Many people go by without inviting them to Stop and look around at least. And you. Say Reno the county seat is on the line of the Central Pacific Railroad Why. Every Day of the year men come West Over that Road looking for Lumes. It would help Washoe a great Deal to get a few of course the More the better i Don t know of any better Way to get what you want than to advertise for it. A straight Forward statement of the advantages of a town or county or a state will be sure to attract Atten Tion and win settlers. That s what we need Here in the West. Now just look Here and see what kind of literature our counties Are sending saying this or.

They were much More voluminous than the Little dodgers issued by the Nevada state Board of immigration a year ago. Controller Hallock sent me several thousand of those while i was East of the Rocky mountains and 1 blazed my Trail with them wherever i went distributing them on Railroad trains in hotels and wherever i thought they would d the most Good. For a starter that circular was All that could be wished. It was Well written the amendments and 51 voted in their favor those 51 vote s would be sufficient to pass them but the authorities of various states differed on the proposition. Judge Wells referring to the Chang Ingol the Constitution said it seemed a very simple thing to do when one reads the Law but from All Appeal ances the state has teen singularly unfortunate in any of its legislation on the subject. He considered that the action of the Senate in 18s5 had in strict compliance with the action of the of pearls and Orange blossoms.
