Lucky Day for Jim Butler When He
Found a Stray Burro Gxaainf
Over a Goldfield.
RENO, Aug. 23 —Papers unique In
the divorce records hers tell the
story of the raptd rise to wealth ot
Oscar A. Turner, chief owner of the
Ely Central, Tonopah and other rich
mining properties. He tried to steal
a march on his wife, and reached the
coarts ahead of her through the clev
erness of his attornesy in establishing
legal residence for him. It was part
of the engagement with them also
that they should put through the case
without publicity. Mrs. Turner Is not
averse to dropping the marital bonds,
but she doesn’t like to be over
reached. and through her the finan
cier’s early operatolns, heretofore
well concealed, have sprung s leak.
When Jim Butler, In search of a
stray burro, found it on top of Mount
Oddle grating over ore worth S7OO a
ton, Turner was mining barren rock
In BOrass Valley, Cal. The wonders
of Mlzpah, as Tonopah was then
called, reached Turner as he was
about pulling up stakes. Having
raised enough money to carry him to
Tonopah, Turner sought Butlbr and
asked him how much money he want
ed for his mine. Butler replied that
only cash would be considered, and
Turner, with hardly a bean to hie
name, answered loftily that his meth
od of doing business was for cash
He obtained an option and put him
self in touch with friends tn Philadel
phia. The deal landed 200.000 shares
for himself, some of which he sold at
$24 a share to give him ready money.
From that time his march Into mil
lions was on the double-quick.- By
means of the rich yield from Tonopah
he soon paid $300,000 for the Ely
Central claims and closed other prof
These stories are not told to his
discredit, but apparently because he
would prefer that nothing be said ot
them. The big tHTngs he has pro
moted and carried to success speak
for themselves and he la known to be
prodigal In the use of money, but he
doesn’t think his reputation will be
helped by exploiting him as a big
spender or as a man willing to take
a long chance. It suits him better to
pose as a conservative business man.
Both parties being willing, there Is
no doubt that 'Thw divorce suit vrttt
