It will contain an accurate business
directory of every city, town and vil
lage in the state. A descriptive sketch
of each place will be given, embrac
ing various items of interest. Lists
of government and county officers
will also be included in the work, as
well as census statistics, hotels, news
papers, terms of courts, postoffices,
express and telegraph offices, etc. An
important feature will be the classi
fied directory, giving every line of
business, arranged under its special
heading. Gazatteer per copy, $600.

it is little wonder that financiers arc
chary of handling the city's paper."
Thclntcr Mountain is mistaken
when it says the loss of interest will
fall on the contractors. If the city
officials failed to collect the interest
from those who owe it the city is
not relieved from paying it to the
contractors. The contractors can
collect the interest on their warrants
from the city to the last cent.
Stokers arc the most unreasonable
of men. Instead of being fleeced in
the smjokc-room, sunburnt on deck,
eating indigestible food four or five
times a day in the saloon, all they
have to do is to stay down in the
quiet bowels of the ship and shovel
coal. No steamer rugs to bother
with down there not Panama nor
the Gold Coast itself is safer from
chilly winds. No yawning, idle
hours; no atrocious females, whether
the drowsy, owly old ones or the
young kind in yachting suits with an
chors. Cabin passengers walk miles
and don't increase the ship's speed
as much as a millionth of a knot.
The stoker knows that every swing
of his back and arms pushes the le
viathan forward a little farther, a lit
tle faster. If .enough men keel over
during the day, three or four miles
can actually be added to the five hun
dred and thirty which otherwise
would have constituted a day's run.
All stories in the papers, the con
gratulatory speeches at banquets, the
'international jealousies, dcij:nd on
these grimy llads down below. It's
a responsibility that ought to thrill
any imaginative man in every fibre.
If each stoking-crew only had the
enthusiasm and sporting spirit to
work itself to death, there is no tel
ling where the records might go.
Wjhy should these men want to cat
at all? Does the race horse stop to
munch grass as he lunges toward
the wire? Yet, if the cable reports
of the great Lusitania's return voy
age arc to be trusted, they will insist.
They even go to the length of grow
ing "sullen" when their grub is bad
ly cooked or short in measure. 'On
Sunday night, when twenty-six hours
from New York, they assumed an
attitude of open defiance, alleging
that they were receiving improper
and insufficient food." Plainly il
logical, not to say outrageous. The
ship had been gaining time steadily
and, as the log shows, continued to
gain time until ,thc following Thurs
day. "A begrimed deputation of
twenty-five came up from the hold
through the luxurious sailoon apart
ments to the bridge, bearing pots and
pans of steaming victuals. Captain
Watt pacified them, but only for a
time. Throughout the trip their work
continued loose and half-hearted, at
times approaching absolute ineffi
ciency." Sooty boo's on the velvet
rugs, the deplorable odor of "scouse"
and "salt horse" mingling with the
poussin with grapes and the mush
rooms sous cloches of the first-cabin
table. Clearly the London corre
spondent of the New York "Sun"
writes truly when he says: "A more
refractory, a more stubborn, and a
more malcontent collection never fed
NO, THANK YOU.
Collier's Weekly has an editorial
in which it is implied that Nevada
cannot bear the expense of statehood
and that something will have to be
done, taking it for granted that Neva
da will not grow in population or
wealth. The editorial suggests that
part or all of Nevada be joined to
Utah. Wc don't think Utah wants
to be saddled with an unproductive
desert like Nevada. It is hinted that
the Ncvadans wouldn't like to be tied
up to a "Mormon majority." The
objections, however, might come
from the Mormons not liking to be
tied up to Nevada. The article in
Collier's reads as follows:
"The case of Nevada.
"Can she stand alone, or docs she
The abandonment of the plan to
unite Arizona with New Mexico
brought out the suggestion that it
should be attached to Nevada, and
that brought' the old question of Ne
vada's future again before the public.
With the collapse of each successive
mining boom this question has be
come acute, for Nevada has never
yet attracted a permanent population
large enough to justify the mainten
ance of a separate state government.
Nine states have come into the Union
since her admission, and Oklahoma
will make the tenth. All of them have
forged ahead while Nevada has stood
still. She had just 156 more people
in 1870 than she had thirty years
later. Her new mmining camps arc
helping her just now, but in time ihcy
will go the way of Virginia City and
Gold Hill. Her hope of a settled pop
ulation now rests upon irrigation.
There is plenty of fertile soil in the
State if it can be watered, and the
Reclamation Service may yet create
a self-supporting commonwealth.
"The Rochester "Union Advertiser"
suggests that the proper disposition
of Nevada would be o unite it to
Utah, from which it is divided only
by an imaginary line crossing the des
ert. This would make a compact
state of reasonable size. The only
objection to the plan is that it would
put the people of Nevada into rela
tions which the greater part of them
would find unnatural. The old min
ing region about the Comstock and
the new camps of Goldfield, Tono
pah and Bullfrog have all their deal
ings with California. They would not
like to be tied up to a Mormon ma
jority several hundred miles away
across the desert. But there is no
reason, apart from sentiment, why
Nevada should not be divided, attach
ing the western part to California, and
the eastern to Utah. Under such an
arrangement the enlarged California
would still be smaller than Texas, and
the enlarged Utah smaller than Montana."
