Reno. Washoe county. Nevada. Thursday september 13, no 21. Fixed mail the Greenville bulletin waxes Wroth Over the malls delays. It flays i again we feel it our duty to Call at Tention to the Gross net Flirence prac tired by some postal officials on the Keno route possibly at Keno certainly at Beckworth. On tuesday of last week the paper mail did not arrive. Now if the Greenville mail was seat from Reno at the proper time by the postmaster there it is possible to ferret out this troublesome official be tween Here and Reno and Lay his Case before the proper authority. It is believed by some that considerable of the trouble which occurred this sum Mer originated in the Reno office. We do not wish to Oast an unjust imputation but if the trouble does occur at that office the postmaster there ought to be summarily removed. The peo ple Here have been disappointed so Many times during the summer that a petition demonstrating against the negligence lately manifested is talked of. We have sati factory proof of the carelessness shown by the postmaster at Beckworth in one Case at least during last week. On thursday night the bad containing the Quincy mail was switched off to Greenville and that containing the Greenville mail went to Quincy. It is not our desire to treat the Bee Worth postmaster unkindly but there Are times when for Bearance ceases to be a virtue and one of those times is at baud. Do your duty or. Postmaster if you do not wish a petition forwarded asking for your removal. We have had frequent occasions to complain of the mails and have tried hard to locate the trouble. We have been unable to find any instance however where the Beno office either delayed or dissent the malls and we think it is somewhere on the Road. Asylum we could doubtless make a better newspaper article by a sensational attack upon the new management of the insane Asylum by the simple statement of facts As we find them which we give in another column but the Gazette has Al ways dealt in legitimate news and Only tries to give a True statement of any fact that is of interest or value to the Public. It has made its reputation As a live paper in the Best sense of the term riot by unjust attacks or misrepresentations but by gathering All the news and put Ting it in attractive shape. We believe that the change made in the management of the Asylum was one of the most disgraceful Politica swaps that Ever a state governor and Board were Small enough to enter into but to keep up a Cap Titus opposition to the officers on that account would Only be to in Jure the Asylum and our unfortunate neighbors who Are undergoing treatment there. We have taken pains to keep informed and made As careful examinations As were pos sible without living there and we Are convinced that or. Bishop is doing his beat for the poor patients. Hence we feel it our duty to com mend his efforts and strengthen him by supporting him As Long As he continues to do Well. Wall Street is beg Ning to feel the result of the squeeze in stocks ant dullness of markets in a Way that is tangible to brokers at least. Bom time ago seats in the new York Stock Board rated at then they dropped to then on was sold for and now come the word that one was offered of such a drop As this Indi Cates that Wall Street is losing its grip on the pockets of the people and that Stock brokers will soon have to scratch for a living like the rest of us. A ago during a per Irmanee at the theater Bishop Whitaker stepped on the stage Ami requested any doctor who was pres it to go to the depot to attend a Jat Lent. A Gazette reporter was n the spot As soon As the doctor and Learned that a gentleman anted Williams bad in a fit of in sanity Cut his Throat badly with pocket knife. The affair was ardly Over before or. Williams Ster in Law hunted up the re writers and requested that nothing said about the matter. They id her that everybody knew of Methling about it and it would e Tor better for All concerned to d to Trala is ave a Plain and Correct Nannt Iven and thus set at rest the the Salt Lake chronicle says the work of the Utah Commissio shows that people have Bee disfranchised on account of polygamy. This Means that there arc people out of the Penitentiary who ought to be in it. If the Law of 1862 or the Edmunds la could be enforced How Many prisons would it take to hold the polyps supposing each prison held 70? Public sentiment is said to condemn the James verdict in Kansas City. Mail. Matters Why our Northern Are neglected the papers at Greenville and us Sauvalle Piave often complained of the mails irregularities and very justly too for the people of this country pay enough to get their let ters promptly. The postmaster at Renos a Trio mail5 often lie Over Here All Day because the stages can not wait it the trains Are Over an hour late. The contractors have a schedule to go by and if they fail to make time they Are fined heavily by the depart meet. The mail from the West is due at a. M., and the stage leaves at 7. Or. Jamison rushes things that half hour and j. Tie the mails from the Lover mors that would be generated by make time m f to East come at that they All has incorrect knowledge that they had o Rule except to Tell what Hap ens that it bad probably been Legra bed and would appear in ther papers and that subscribers the local papers had a right to expect to be informed of everything hat occurs in Reno or Vicinity. By blog would satisfy her How ver and she would not take any answer but a Promise to withhold she even said it was Worth Money to her and her friends and offered to pay Well for it she was quickly convinced that news was not regulated in that she followed the proprietors f both papers Home and appealed o them on grounds of humanity aying that the mortification of or. Williams would be so great hat it would interfere with his recovery that his wife was about o be confined and it would endanger her life if she saw the papers s the real facts Ware concealed Rorn her. She urged the strongly and was seconded by or. Osburn and mrs. Laws who were with her so earnestly that consent was finally very reluctantly Given and the fault finding on the Street was borne As philosophically As Al late. It is very easy to see hat it was a mistake to refrain rom publishing any snob item. One would have been injured. T was As easy to keep papers from he wife and patient As to prevent gossip in their presence and it never leads to any Good result. The jest Way is to give a fair account of All the news and even those whose Orns Are pinched will recognize he Justice and Wisdom of the i Llcy when they know that the Rule is never broken. Or. Wil iams died in Sacramento this week and Leaver a wife and child so we feel that our Promise has teen kept but we will be More careful about making another like lie Here All Day. Or. Meylert the following in regard to the matter fanes Vivle cfll., sept. 5. Editor.1 advocate in your Ismie of August 30th, i notice some very unjust criticisms on the u of nuul1 Between Reno and us Wiiilie. There is an old schedule of and dupa Ilure of mails in the tvs made when the East and West bound to ims on the Central Pacific a i in to at Uono at 1 a. M., that would if followed now being your san Francisco mail one Day later than Yon now Loo Eive it. A general Rule of the to Stohle department would do a with the schedule of several years Juko Vik a close connection with Pine pal mail routes which could not be done were the malls to leave at 2 a. I will make you a present of upon showing me that during the last 14 months the mail Currier has failed to de liver mails at Susanville within the Tinio his contract Calls for Viz 18 hours from May 1st to october 31st, 30 hours from november 1st to april 30th. On several occasions during the past two months to our certain knowledge we have received no Neil. Or. Says the mails have been delivered continuously during this period. The mail baits May have been and if not containing mail is no fault of eds another Point that is often overlooked Viz that a mail car Rier cannot be responsible for carelessness in postmasters delays in connecting mails or any delay other than the delivery of the mail placed in his charge within the time mentioned in the contract. I consider your criticism a very in just one from the fact that it is doubtful if there is half a dozen routes on this coast that can mane the showing of promptness that we Are Able to do without a single break for a period of Over 14 months. Dead. Very Lesieu fully yours Eylert. A Shana Doah excite six.
