QUALITY WILL BE RULE FOB EXHIBIT ? ? ^ Quality rather than quantity is to be the keynote of the mining display of Nevada at the Panama-Pacific ex position, according to an outline of plans made public today by Prof. E. E. Lincoln, head of the Mackay School of Mines, and Prof. J. C. Jones, assist ant in geology. These two have charge of the exhibit. The booth will be designed by P. J. Delong champs, says the Reno Gazette. Ne vada's allotment of space in the Palace of Mines and Metallurgy at the exposition is 2,400 feet in a location considered to be very desireable. How ever, many of the state have appro priations for mining exhibits far ex ceeding that of Nevada, so those in charge of the Nevada exhibits feel that these will have to compete in quality rather than In quantity. In stead of crowding the booth with a large -general collection of mediocre specimens from all the mines and prospect of the state, an attempt will be made to collect a comparatively small set of especially beautiful and interesting products and display them to the greatest posible advantage. ? meet mm ARE ARRESTED H.

O See the "Adventures of Kathlyn" tonight at the Bradley Opera House. sensatIalm . Ill WORLD SERIES In -the world series baseball cham pionship which starts today, the Bos ton Nationals and tho Philadelphia Americans are expected to contribute many sensational plays both offens ively and ' defensively, during the struggle for premier diamond honors. In fact, It would prove extraordinary if the reverse should be the case since combinations which include players of the type of Johnny Evers, Eddie Col lins, "Rabbit" Maranvllle, "Stuffy" Mclnnerf, "Hoifie Run" Baker . and Schmidt execute thrilling catches, throws and stops in every game of the pennant schedule. Acomparlson of the two infields shows that both the American and National league championship clubs have quartets of players stretched around the base lines that are far above the ordinary run of those of the big league clubs. Regardless of whatever the players are, veterans or phenomenal young sters, with but a year or so of major league experience, they are leaders or close to the top In thlr particular po sition. Just how these two infields will play against each other 1b hard to forecast, but an individual comparison of the season's work of each of the eight players most likely to cover the positions from first to third, shows that they are quite evenly matched In general skill with glove and bat. MED CEL LS FOB COUNTY JAIL The two padded cells for use in the county Jail Which have been ordered for some time past came today and work of installing thom will commence at ohce.

Batted Bender out of Box in 6th Inning and Score Seven to One on The Athletics Philadelphia and Boston, of course have been widely excited over the outcome of the first game in the ser ies for the baseball championship of the world, but in proportion to the size, they had nothing on Elko today when the bulletins began to arrive concerning the fray. The odds as posted by local sportsmen were given as 10 to 8 in favor of Philadelphia on the first game and also on the series with quite a bunch of Boston money in sight It is estimated -that at least $2,000.00 changed hands in this city over today's game. Quite a few freak bets- were also made, some of them and the odds being as fol lows: 5 to 4 that the first game was won in 9 innings, even money that at least one game in the series will gc over 9 innings, even money that Bak er will not hit a homerun in the ser ies, even money that the Boston out field will make more basehits than the Athletic outer gardners. The partis an spirit was about equally divided locally, both the Braves and Athletics having plenty of supporters all eager to place their money on their favor ites. A large. crowd was on hand at the! Commercial Hotel where the game ' was being detailed and there was j cheering and excitement ran high , when the Athletics scored first in the second inning. When Boston also scored in that Inning however, the supporters of the Braves had their chance and they took advantage of ' it in a finer manner. One could easily imagine that he had a box seat at Shibe park and was listening to the shouts of mutitudes on hand there as their favorites made a spectacular j play or someone drove a long hit to the outfield. ' Wires from Philadelphia where the first scene in the big series was laid, early in the day stated that the game would possibly be called off on ac count of rain, but later in the forenoon old Sol came out and chased Jupiter Pluvlus into the background and thereby saved thousands of loyal fans from heart failure. The continent of home team routers went wild with delight when it waB announced that Bender would occupy the hurling mound for the home team and Schang would be his receiving mate. Their reception was equalled by the faithful body of Beanto-n * rooters who accompanied the "Braves to the Quaker City, however, when the news was shouted that the battery for the Braves would be Rudolph and Qowdy. Both teams were equally con fident of Victory. The Athletics on account of their experience of four world series and the Braves confid ence of youth and vitality. The first inning was marked by no scoring on the part of either team but each scored in the second. After that it was a walkaway for the boys from the hub of the universe. They scored one in the fifth, three in the sixth and another in the eighth while th^ Athletics failed to put another man across the pan. Bender ' was hammered unmercifully and in the sixth inning was relieved by Bush, Lapp going behind the bat Rudolph lasted the whole game for the Braves and seemed to Improve each inning. The Athletics were breaking their backs after his curve and ducking from his fast one all through the game. Joy reigns in Boston this evening 1 and the odds have switched from 10 (Contiuned on page four). BIG DEMOCRATIC RALLY United States Senator FRANCIS G.

CORRECTION IN JOHN BROWN MATTER > The Independent wishes to make a correction in regard to the John Brown case before the Board of Com missioners as published in this paper Wednesday afternoon. In stating that the four men arrested In the Toggery robbery were found in Brown's place, we were in error as we discovered ? afterwards th'at only two of them spent the night there and at that time Brown was out of town and knew nothing of the matter. The article was not intended in any way to re flect on the character of either Brown or his place. Brown has a reputation in Elko for honesty as is shown by the following incident: about three years ago Brown introduced another Greek to two local firms and the fel low being given credit by the two Arms, skipped out owing them about $700. Although not called on to in any way, Brown paid off the two debts at once and showed that he intends to deal straight with everyone. We make this statement in order that no one may misunderstand the article which is spoken of above and to give Brown the credit which he deserves. BIG SlPAinf SETTLE OLD SUIT By the payment of 116,480 in twenty dollar gold pieces yesterday at Goldfleld the last vestige of litiga tion against -the Round Mountain Mining company was wiped out and the troubled career of this corpora tion made ready for a period of the greatest activity. The case In point was that of the Round Mountain Sphinx Mining company against the Round Mountain Mining company, the granddaddy of them all, and the first company to demonstrate the auriferous resources of that valley which came as a legacy with the set tlement of the apex litigation through a bill for services rendered by P. P. Carney and Detcb & Carney as legal advisers of the Sphinx company. To secure this implied obligation the Round Mountain company in reor ganizing to absorb the Sphinx set aside 30,000 shares of stock ot meet any verdict that might be rendered against the Sphinx. This waa not adequate to liquidate the judgment ? and as an attachment had been is sued against the entire Round Moun tain holdings it was decided to wipe off the slate and make a clean start with the new company free from all entanglements. William Forman was attorney for the Sphinx. Carney had attached 175,000 shares to secure his judgment and the co lateral had been advertised for sale in front of the court house wben At torney William Forman and Thomas T. Lynch, of Tonopah, arrived. When these gentlemen learned that nothing had been done to secure payment in compliance with the promise of J. P. Sweney they persuaded Carney to postpone the sale until they could see Sweeney, and arrange for the liquid ation of the judgment. This was all that prevented a forced sale of the collateral. ? ? oo " ? 'Western Pacific Train.
