HEARST AND ROOSEVELT A6REE After all the years of cartooning and bitter abuse of Roosevelt by the Hearst organs throughout the country, it seems strange to find in the columns of one of those paoers an enthusiastic indorsement of something the colonel has said. In the declaration of Roosevelt that coast wise shipping should pass free through the canal, the Hearst editors at last find common ground on which they can meet and frater nize with the former president. It must be a cause of keen satis faction for the Hearst editors tc find that after all Colonel Roose velt is not wholly bad, but that he has some ideas with which the edi tors can agree. While we have not agreed with the colond we are free to confers that he is not influenced in this matter by the ownership of somi million of acres of land somewhere in the vicinity of the canal. The cnlor.el may be selfish, but politics usuallv lie behind his selfishness, nnt money. The spectacle of HearBt indors ing him in black type will be our of the amusing things which will confront Roosevelt when he gets within range of the American news papers Again. Now that the editor has found something good in*the colonel it if barely possible that he may be in duced to look farther. Possibly he will find other good points that he has overlooked and repent of thr nasty cartoons of the colonel ht hired his yourg inen to makr.? Sacramento Union. THE TEAMSTER AND THE Si AGE UOAGH When one notes incoming travel frorr. this county's outlying mining districts, disembarking at our hotel doors, women with undisturbed toilets, the men of hand box attire though the ride has been over half a hundred miles of rough roads, the conclusion is forced that even though railroads will be long in finding their way into Nevada's remote mining districts, the stage coach has become a thing cf the past. It has been withdrawn in favor of the aut mobile from most of the routes over which it reeled and plunged and thumped itti wb\ a ecore of years and more ago. It way of usefulness, danger, discom fort; of thrilling holdups and mid night tumbling down the mountain side are nearing the end. The stagc coach did yeomen good service in Nevada, as an advance guard of civilization and passes on honored for its place and part in the ad vancement of the interests and sup plying the needs of frontier set tlers ? honored- but regretted. The energies of th3 stasre coach were never depleted by use nor-paralyzed by age. Metaphorically speaking it died running. Within Nevada the stagecoach fat one time was a cirrier of wondei ful treasure and tens ef thousands of humanity scampering for thr gold and silver diggings. From Tuscarora in the north to Pioche in the sooth stagecoaches did theii part in Nevada's development but the pecessities of transit and man's v a'.-** genius in serving thtm has forced the decree that the stagecoach shall go. Within Nevada there are today men hoary of head and bent of figure who once swerved over the rough Nevada roads with the lines and whip in their hands. They had the buoyancy and vitality of youth in those days and their service made them known the length an<? breadth of the land. Some of these men refuse to give up the road and out of FaUon ride teamsters, who will die like m?ny of their beloved horses before them? in the harness. They ride across the desert ex panses and"up mountain and down canyon facing the biting cold of winter and the alkali dust of sum mer with Spartan resoluteness. All honor to these men. ?

BULLFROG MILL TO SCRAP HEAP An aftermath of the boom times that made mountains cut of mole hills and mines out of holes in t e ground is the gradual shipping away of the big $40,000 mill of the Montgomery Shoshone Consolidated Mining company in Nevada. In the days when Greenwater tnd Furnace stocks glitttered with the txpectanl rain of shining doll irs, Montgom ery Shoshone with Charles Micheal Schwab, $1,000,000 a year steel trust president, behind it, looked like a real winner. Since then it has been all going out and nothing coming in. The magnificent mill is being gradually relegated to ti e scrap heap as junk. The annual re port for the year enditg December 31 shows that the company is $8, 458 poorer than it was a year ago. Last year there was a b lance or hand of $28,833, while _t the close of business on December 31, 1913, there was cash to the extent of $20,374. Of this balance $13,463 was invested in the United States steel bonds. No mining operat'ons have been carried on for several years. ? Goldfield Tribune. Quite Reasonable.
