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. ?

H. E. McGucken, Al. Williams and
Sjf/)scar Ruf, a cook, were arrested laBt
night on Main street in Tonopah for
disturbing the peace by singing I. W.
W. songs. McGucken was first to be
taken off the stand, but bis place was
taken at once by Wiliamsl, who be
gan another batlad. When the latter
was arrested the officers were told
there was no shortage of talent and
that plenty of speakers and singers
were held in reserve. Responding to
this Chief of Police Evans reported I
that he had a pretty big building at
his disposal and one with which he
thought would accomodate the entire
membership of ttie I. W. W.'s, if nec
Ruf was the only man to defy the
officers by attempting a speech and
then the crowd drew back, realizing
that business was meant this time.
The mass meeting is the first pulled
off since the shooting of White by
Pansner and was foreBhadoWed by a
threat from the organizers that they
would like to see the officers inter
fere. Their wish was gratified. On
the advice of consul the prisoners
elected trial by Jury and at 3 o'clock
this afternoon an effort Is being
made to impanel a Jury.

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.

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
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
Joy reigns in Boston this evening 1
and the odds have switched from 10

best finds ever made in this country.

largest he has ever seen in thirty
years of his mining experience.

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.
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
