A fine 5 o'clock chicken dinner, at the War Eagle hotel, next Sunday. Mas. M. Morgan. Coal Tar for roof paint, house paint, wagon paint, furniture varnishes and brushes at Philipp's hardwarestorey Hon. Edgar Wilson of Boise, inter ested with his brother in the sheep in dustry in Owyhee, spent a couple of days in Silver City this week. Pure kettle rendered and refined lard, in 5 and 10-pound pails, at 12%c per pound at Owyhee Meat Market,De Lampar and Silver City. When Mrs. Mills went east, there were a few ladies' fine hats and a num ber of children's hats left in her store. She has left instructions that they be sold at greatly reduced prices, Mr. J. H. Shockley, a mining man from Telluride, Colo., a friend of D. B. Santray, has been visiting here this week. He and Mr. Santray together are going over the district and looking over numbers of properties. Jakey Schaas, manager of the J. R. Blackaby & Co. store at Jordan Valley, returned here yesterday from Boise, and with Mrs. Schaas and children, who have been guests of Mrs. Steele for the past week, returned home to day. Charles Kingsley had an outfit and supplies taken over to the Goldrook property in Blue gulch, north of Black Jack, to begin work today. August Holtsae and "Dad" Brownell went with him. Engineer R. H. Britt has charge of the property. James H. Lee, and old timer here,died ' at Mike Rock's lodging house yester day morning after a brief illness. De ceased was a widower, having been married here many years ago to Miss Mary Brady, a most estimable lady, who died here about five years ago at the home of her sister, Mrs. L. A. York, leaving him a son, Frank and a daughter, Ethel, now living with Mrs. York at Weiser. A son James, a very worthy boy. was killed here about five years ago, by the explosion of a soda fountain cylinder upon which he was working. Deceased was buried here today the funeral rites being con ducted by Father Dempsey of the Catholic church, who arrived here in time to administer the last sacrament before his death. Little Gweuny Grete, Mr. and Mrs. Grete'8, Jr., youngest and sweetest little girl, has a terribly cut and lacerated hand since last Friday. Her mother, with her children, went up to the Banner mine, where the father was working aud while the children were playing about the dump, just as a car of waste was being dumped, Gwenny stumbled and fell down the dump, uarrowly escaping going under the waste rock, and either a piece of rock or the corner of the oar oatebing bel ieft hand. The cut made laid bare the tendons in the ball of the hand, aud while it is hoped that it may not be permanently crippled, an ugly scar will probably remain. It is always the misfortune of mountain mining camps that men who acquire fortunes iu them seek the valley towns to make investments. The numbers of men who have carried their thousands and hundreds of thou sands out of Owyhee to build up towns and cities elsewhere, can now scdPcely be counted. Now, this week, we have another to mention, William Hardi man of Picket Creek, an early day Sil ver City merchant who made a fortune ou the very ground where the N ugget building now stands, grew, afterwards, f richer iu the cattle business in Owy hee, dumped a lot of his fortuue iu California investments aud the slump iu cattle of a dozen or more years ago but who has euough left to be called a rich man, is now, according to the W Nampa Leader, investing in the flour ishing town of Nampa, the "Junction City," aud is about to erect there a building for business purposes, to cost H15,LC0. "Bill" Hardimau bas mining claims on War Eagle, where a like sum expended might briug hiui twenty times as much. Watch Chains at Getchell's. Screen doors and wiLdow at Philipps, Go to Olivers for Confections, Nuts, Fruits and CigarB. Miss Callie Lawson came over from Boise Tuesday and is now visiting with Mrs. Morgan. Mrs. Lindberg, our former DeLamar neighbor, visited friends up here this week and made Nugget a jolly call. United States Mineral Surveyor Ball of Boise has been here this week surveying the J. L. Sullivan .Mining properties, preparatory for making ap plication for patent. Dave Adams who has spent the last 10 months in Southern California and has invested a pile in San Diego real estate, got home again Sunday looking better than when he left us last fall. List of letters remaining uncalled for at DeL'imar postoffice for month end ing July 31, 1904: Mrs. John Baxter, James G Brooke, Herman Blatz. W. R. Helm, Postmarter. Mr. ar.d Mrs. John C. Connors are at Given's Warm Sprms,since Wednes day. Mr. Connors' old complaint, rbnmati8m, has been troubling him for some time and he has sought the springs and the fine baths there to boil it out. Rev. H. Jukes, recently of Maokey, Idaho, has been appointed to the Sil ver City, Dewey and DeLamar mission of the Episcopal church. He arrived here lest Saturday and conducted ser vices at St. James' church Sunday. He will hold services in DeLamar next Sunday and at Dewey the following Sunday. His regular appointment will be announced as soon as arranged. Mr. Jukes is a young man of pleasing manners and we hope he will be a use ful one in this field. Robert Noble came up here Tuesday to look up some mining and other business matters, and not feeling well enough to go out to his several sheep camps, took it easy in town until to day. Bob is willing to go to the Mos cow convention and, having reasons to believe that he will sudport the repub lican ticket this year as he always has since he voted for i.imolu while with the federal army, in Tennessee, in 1864, we are inclined to think that the con vention will not go back on the young fellow. John S. St. Clair received a telegram Wednesday from James Shaw dated Los Angeles, Cal., making inquiry if Thomas Shaw had left a will here. As Thomas Shaw had recently reported to friends here that be was not well, and was unable to get back here this sum mer, and us his brother, James, whose home is in Missouri, should send such a telegram from Los Angeles, Cal., the only inference to be drawn from it is that Tom bad died at that place and that James, advised of his illness, had gone to him. People here will await further information with some anxiety Mr. Thomas Shaw is one of the owners of the Republic and Never Sweat mines on War Eagle aud a man of consider able means, who has spent his winters for severs 1 years past in Los Augeles and had invested in property there. He wes so close aud conservative that he would not expend money or permit bis partner, Louis Sorensen, to do so, on what is qonsidered oue of the most valuable mining properties in the dis trict. a a Charles Wyatt Dead. Died—At War Eagle hotel, Silver City, Idaho, July 22, 1904, Charles Wyatt, aged 38 years. Deceased, who bad made Silver City his home for the past four years, had been working this summer at the Standard Mining company's property at South Mouu tain. Seveu or eight days before he died he was taken ill with what was thought to have been pneumonia aud his friends, the Sunday before bis death, had him brought over here where he coud have medical treatment and better care. At first it was thought he was getting better, but tbe disease apparently developed into quick consumption. He was cheerful and hopeful up until the hour of his death, greeting atlri talking with friend» who called to see him. The end came as a surprise to th«m all He was o ,e of tire brothers living in Idaho—Prank, at Hailey; Samuel, at Idaho City ; Lee, at Salmon City, and Riohard residing here, the latter being constantly at his bedside during his short illness. Hit father and four sisters reside at Savanah, Mo. The telegraph was used to apprise all his brothers of his death, the brother from Idaho City reaching here Sunday and the one from Hailey meeting the re mains at Nampa. At the request of bis father his remaius were embalmed and shipped to Misbouri for interment, his brother Ricilkrd accompanying them. He was a member of Silver City Miners' union and also of Dewey lodge of Knights, of Pythias. The members of his lodge, before the ship ment of bis remains, Sunday evening, had them taken to Castle hall and con ducted services Over them. Charley Wyatt, as he was familiarly called here, was a geuial man, kindly, companion able and always honest and honorable and highly esteemed by all who kuew him. During his illness he had every care that kind friends could give him. J DELAMAR Willie Camble is over here from Boise to spend the summer with Roy Demming. Mrs. Demming is removing to Wagontowu today to conduct the boarding house for the cyanide crew. Sammy aud Willie Rodda are here from their Boise home visitiug friends. They are stopping with Mrs. Joe Haggerty. The baseball boys gave a fine dance here Tuesday night, keeping it up uu - til 2 o'clock. Willie Camble, violinist, and George Jefferey, organist, supply ing the music. Still Aliveb Munroe Stevens, who bas been run ning the Owyhee Avalanche for several months past, kissed himself out of that shop with a graceful good-bye iu last week's issue and went back to the mines to find less labor ous aud more congenial employment. But that once influential old paper, which has beeu run for the past two years so that one could not tell which was heads or tails, has not yet given up the ghost merely because it lost a printer, editor and reporter. Its owners, the Owyhee and Boise wheel horses of the good old democratic party, resolved Utat-itrshail still live—at least until the campaign is over and its ciuih on the county printing loosens up. They, therefore, hired Jack McGillis, as good a printer as ever held a stick in the shop, to do the mechanical end, aud the aforesaid democratic wheel horses will provide the whoop-'er-ups for Parker and Davis and whomsoever may be uominated at tbe Lewiston convention, regardless of all previous affiliations Now just watch that once eminintly respectable old Avalanche iuveighiug against trusts, the robber tariff, ship subsidies, imperialism aud such like, aud talking each week about the big chuncks of harmony exist ing in with the the democratic party, Morgans, Belmonts, Davises aud Standard Oil and steel trust magnates and other multi-mildon aire friends of the dear people support ing the candidates and puttiug np millions of dollars to conduct an "honest campaign."
