Weekly Reno Gazette (Newspaper) - April 24, 1879, Reno, Nevada Vol. 3. Is irrigation indispensable when the american landed in Cali fornia he is Mil tie vast pins lying in their primitive wildness and for several years it was the Universal be Lief that no crops would Ever grow. Even when it was found that with irrigation the soil was productive no one Ever thought the whole country would Ruiso Grain without artificial it was looked upon just exactly As of Side lands Are to Day in Nevada. It is our firm belief that there Ara tract to of land in this state that will produce Good wheat Barley and grasses and bring them to perfection without a bit of artificial irrigation. We believe there Are other and far larger tracts that will if slowed deep and sowed in the fall with wheat or Barley grow Good Hay. Of course we hear at once the cry of non from those vrho see that this is not done now. The mass of humanity believe be impossible whatever has Mot been done for a couple of Hundred years before their time. To such we say look at Frank Dickinson s Fields of wheat in Winnemucca Valley the first time Yon go through to Ore to Baa raised Twenty bushels to tie acre for fourteen years without a ditch. Look at Chamberlain s bar Ley Patch on the Susanville Road or better still look at a Little piece of wheat just East of the Bridge this Side of Verdi Lown last fall by m. Benitz. It is strongly rooted now and will make Good Hay although it bag never been wet except by now and rain. Lemon s Spanish Springs Valley and Many Fine pieces of land in the coun try have patches that need Only the Industry of an intelligent Farmer make Thorn productive and valuable. We look with the greatest interest up on All experiments in this line and would be glad to be informed of the results. If such a possibility can be established Nevada has Little need to regret the exhaustion of two or three cd stocks. Reno Washoe county Nevada thursday april 24, 1879. Til def and to Lukaian no matter How the chronicle and Enterprise Settle their important argument is to which is the Choice of the democracy for president Tho fact remains that thurr Nan ii Cabool boy in politics Cam paved with Tilden. To has had the presidential Bee in his Lousy old Bonnet for years and could hardly conceal his impatience while waiting for his turn. He was a hard Money Man when Tho Dis ease struck him and fought his Uncle Bill Allen very hard that proposition. He was whipped in however and made Tome speeches in which he swallowed the inflation platform in a Way which humiliated his friends very much. He has since Flung consistency the the dogs and is shuffling twisting and trading every thing and everybody. He coached Blackburn and Tilden put Randall in Tho chair. He is doing his Best to keep up the fight which makes con Gress a revolutionary body and while he May help to ruin the country he cannot help his chances in the least. Every Day sees his prospects weaken and he stands to Day a Monument of Folly second to no politician the half a cent ukr of Freedom. Fifty years ago the Catholic Relief Bill passed the British parliament and the Irish people breathed free for the first time in centuries. The English nation went at Ireland like wild beast Ping for a Lamb with the avowed purpose of exterminating tie race. They Weie pushed to a fiery Zeal by religious bigotry As Well As National prejudice and there is no Page of human history blotted with Darker crime orse persecution or cruelty than that relating to the two islands from 1100 to 1800. At Tho beginning of this Century William Pitt was in the prime his glorious career and he conceived the Noble idea of doing Justice to the groaning Island. He failed to see the end of his work but in 1829 Robert Peel finished it in an Able manner. Intelligent travellers Are unanimous in the opinion that no country in Europe is advancing As fast As Ireland. Her schools Are full of Bright boys and girls who have Royal opportunities compared to those of their parents and the most rapid advances Are made in the most benighted districts. F the condition of land titles was the same As in France so that Smalt parcels could be obtained Ireland would have a Brilliant future inside of the next Century and she will be far More prosperous than in the past without doubt. The Case of b. B. Fabkin9ok. C. 8. Van u. S. District attorney publishes the following card the Carson Appeal of yesterday morn ing in regard to tha Case of r. B. Parkinson eds. Moreiko the Tribune of last evening appears an article relative to the Case of the United states is. Richard r. Parkin son charged with offences against the registry and naturalization Laws of the United states. I assume that a son by Law is justified in supporting and defending him gave him life. I find no fault with e. J. Parkinson in that respect. Enjoined by All Law it is the duty of the child to Honor the Parent. Nevertheless in the truth lies the justification. Or. E. J. Par Kinson in his statement on his Appeal from the United states District court to the newspapers has intentionally and unnecessarily misrepresented the facts and deceived the Public. Pre testing against Tho jurisdiction of the newspapers nevertheless i now publicly assert Over Iny official signature that i am prepared now and Here after to a bomb the charges against Richard r. Parkinson. C. S. Fabian United states attorney. Just As the Gazette predicted the coloured immigrants in Kansas Are be ginning to suffer want and hardship late dispatches show that the most of them Are indebted to Charity far food and slip Ter. If the Plantation Negros Wero educated and read the papers such reports would deter to Benin from immigrating without knowing where they were going or what for. But they canno real and they naturally will not believe what the planters Tell them hence the sufferings of those who Hava gone before will not hic Clai others from following after. The Dow Troville messenger lion cos an article ignorance is the editor of o ought to be us porn by ii spy tha Downieville copies the Gazette s item about or.

Marcy s most difficult duty that a politician has to perform is retire gracefully from the stage of Public life when he is toe old to be of further the most difficult duty politicians have to per form out Here is not to retire when tha Public have no further use for them. The democrats of Providence Rhode Island put a coloured Man on their ticket and he was Defeated As was the rest of the ticket. Now seme of the democratic papers Are pointing to his defeat As an evidence of Republican hostility to the negro. We presume the republicans voted against him because he was a Democrat and not on account of his color when the republicans set Tho Man free and raised him from the position of a chattel to a citizen they did not obligate themselves 10 veto for him just because he was Black. An Impromptu mock auction Sale of women was amusing and profitable at first in a Racine wis Church fair.

The auctioneer was compelled to Knock her Down at 25 cents and she was so an Gry that she put on her tilings and went Home. Not15-3. In ashes the Sentinel with the rest. We Are not so sorry for the people As we Are for the Sentinel. Tie refusal of Seymour to head the democratic ticket for governor of new York May be taken As conclusive evidence that the Tilden Wing of the democracy hold the whip hand in the Empire state. Seymour s election to tha governorship would bring him in direct Competition with Tilden for the presidential nomination. Therefore somebody at a candidate for presidential honors will be selected. A Washington dispatch says that George 0. Gorham will soon leave there for California and begin at once to organize the Republican party there. God help the Republican party then the republicans can win this election in California with reasonable prudence but if they undertake u carry coolie Gorham they invite defeat. The san Francisco Exchange comes to us this morning illustrated with cuts of de Young and Kearney. This is the last shot in the exchanges locker and if it Don t fix Deyoung and Kearney then they Are Invulnerable. A late dispatch says Kearney has fled the country and Deyoung is a raving maniac. A the democrats have an incentive the defeat the new cons citation from the fact that it vacates the seats of All the bold Over senators of which they have a majority of four. The republicans have twelve and the democrats six teen hold overs. This is an element in the Battle to which politicians Are Awakening.
