We f°Dc«rning th*|J[1,je 10 Interview them THE FOUNDATION ATONE OK PACIFIC COAST MTANDARD LITERATURE. Hitherto we of the Pacific Coast have had, properly speaking, no litera ture of our own. The history and the resources of our country have re mained unwrritten, and, comparative ly speaking, unknown. Information respecting a territory as new as that lying west of the Rocky mountains must, at heat, be scanty; but, as yet, even this has not been available, and for the reason that It is scattered through thousands of volumes and an cient manuscripts, and most of them dif ficult to obtain,and nianyof them almost priceless. .Sections of States and mat ters of local interest have been written up; travelers have given in their bonks of “travels around the world” a few jottings of what they saw in California »<r Oregon, but nothing more then this. To obtain all matters which had been printed or written concerning one only of our .States, it would therefore he necessary to read through probably five thousand volumes. Few men in this country have the inclination to do this, fewer still have the time or money to do it. What was necessary was that some one should boil down, as it were, should digest the whole mass of mate rial and bring it into a readable and available shape. We say this was what was wanted, but it was never mtggeated, and, for a geod reason —where was the man to do it? In the first place, the person undertaking such a vast work must ue a man oi jirerary taste ana ability; in the second place, be must he a man of wealth and leisure—and what man of wealth in this country in a man of leisure ? In the third place, he must he a man devoted to the cause and entirely unselfish; for the project certainly offered no pecuniary inducements, and lie might think him self lucky if after years of patient and laborious toil, after paying out thou sands which brought no return, even in the way of interest he came out even. Such a man would he a plienix of the lir-t water and hard to tind. Such a man has been found, however; not as proposing to do the work, but as hni’iitfi done it. Fifteen years ago Mr. Hubert Ban croft withdrew from an eminently successful business and devoted him self to literature. Being impressed with the magnitude of the new Held w hich lay uncultivated and unexplored before him in the territory west of the Rocky Mountains, be undertook to exhaust the subject, lie made no stir about it: he asked no assistance from (iovernment, w here it might reason ably be expected. His tirst step was to collect, in the shape of a colossal private library, all the booksand man uscript* that touched the subject. For this purpose he went upon several oc casions to Europe, and spared neither time nor trouble in collecting every thing of the kind that money would huv. The re It was a library ttie most complete on its subject in the world, to w hich additions have since and are now constantly being made. I Hubert B mcrofi next engaged a strong j corps of li crarv men, Europeans and Americans, to help him. Their duty has Ihji-ii to go through the works and lake out notes in such a shape as to render it possible for him to digest and write from them. Without such as sistance (lie work would have been im practicable; Dumas, Humboldt, and other great writers have found this out, and so has Mr. Bancroft. This gentleman now otters us the first installment of tlie result of his j labors in a live volume series of works j on The Satire Jiaces of the 1‘acific I Staten. The ground covered is the en j tire American territory west ot the Rocky Mountains, including the Brit ish Possessions ami the whole of Mex ico and Central America. The stvle is clear, concise amt attractive, white, in the way of foot notes, this work is probably more complete than any ever published, every shade of difference in the authorities being laid before tlie reader. Nothing is omitted, and all dilllciilties are satisfactorily elucidated. Some of the volumes are splendidly and profusely illustrated, unit most of them contain original ami valuable maps. Tbe typography is clear, ami shows great care; the binding is ex cellent and tasteful. We may conclude by saying that wo heartily recommend liuherl RancrotV* work to our readers, slid we fed assured that the American people will not allow his task to be a thankless one. R. Y. Anderson, ol Eureka, is agent for Eastern Nevada. Tin: (ill.A MINING COMPANY. We append the subjoined from tlie San Francisco Stock lb-port relative to the affairs of the Gila Mining Compa ny, whose property is situated in Reveille District. Nye county: A stockholder writes to the Winnemucca Silver Slater as follows: “Tile Gila Mining Company hold a reserve of $50,000 after paying the twenty-tivo cents dividend for June. The mine produced upward of $08,000 in July, ami still tlie management pay hut twenty five cents dividend for the month. Query—Where does the money go to, and v bat becomes of it?" The editor of tlie Stork Report lias made inquiries at headquarter* with a view to answering tlie above interrog atories. Since work was commenced on tlie (ilia mine, on the 1st of May, it lias yielded $AN»,000 in bullion, and there has lieen no assessment. The si.ml dividend of 25 cents per share will lie paid on Monday next. Though steadily extracting ore and paying divi dends, tlie company is pushing for ward tlie deveb-pme..' of tlie mine. The new working shaft, which is to have a depth of UHtl feet, Is now down sixty feet. Tlie work of replacing the old'wooden pipe with Iron pipe, in order to insure a supply of water in Winter, is aUo in progress. The re serve is needed to meet tlie expenses of tlie mine, to pay for development, and to meet any emergency which may arise. A mine that pays over five per cent, per month on the valuation of tlie stock certainly seems to be good property. This is tlie allowing of tlie Gila. It is paying dividends while its mill is closed for repairs and dead work is going on. Business Change.—Aunt Hannah has disposed of tier entire lot of ladies’ furnishing goods, etc., to Miss Maggie Casey, who will continue the business at the old stand, South Main street. Aunt Hannah goes East to make pur chases for the business. See card un der “New To-Day,’’ THE EXHIBITION AND BALL THIS KVKNINU, The ball and exhibition of the Pacific Club at Criterion Hall this evening promises to be the great social event of the week. Extensivo preparations have been made, and it would appear that the success of the undertaking is already assured. Eor the information of those who may desire to attend we are requested to state that dancing will commence at 9 o'clock sharp, continu ing until 11 o’clock, when the floor will be cleared for the exhibition.which is designed to last until 12. At 1 o’clock dancing will recommence and continue as long as may be desirable. The fol lowing are the athletes who are to ap pear in all sorts of break-neck feats: Chas. Fuchs, V.Chiuda, Dave J. Mat thews, A. Brooks, O. Brown, Alf. Chart/,, James Hamilton and Frank Heigelhuth. The performers will ap pear in full uniform suitable to the oc caslon, and judging from what we have seen ot their exercises, we have no hesitation in pronouncing them ex perts at the business in hand. They are all as nimble as cats, and some of them are daring enough to hang by an eyebrow to the cornice of a seven story building. The ball and exhibi tion ought to, and doubtless will, at tracts crowded house. InforMation Wantko.-We yester day received a letter from G. T. Dav enport. whose address is Box 870, New burg, New York, inquiring for a man named William Smith, aged 55, for merly an engineer in tlie llale & Nor cross. Tlie letter says, by addressing Mr. Davenport as above, Mr. Smith will hear of something to his advant age. Di case of the decease of Mr. Smith, his heirs were to answer Jor him. Wo can only say that a Win. Smith was engineer at tlie Julia last April, and resided at the northeast corner of D and Washington streets. ■Enterprise. Frank Undercover, of this place, in forms us that he knew tlie Win. Smith above inquired for, at Virginia City, some seven or eight years ago, when ho was employed at the old Hale At Norcross mining works. He after wards went to Carson City and run tlie engine at tlie Mint lor a short time when lie was taken down with a fever and died. State vs. Borowsky.— Tliis case was on trial yesterday in the District Court, District Attorney Merrill ap pearing for the Slate and Messrs. I.as pyere and Hubbard for tlie defendant. Tlie evidence was all in and tlie argu ment of counsel finished at an early hour in tlie evening, when tlie case was given to tlie jury. Up to a late hour, however, no verdict had been returned, and tlie opinion prevailed about the Court-house that there was no probability of tlie jury agreeing —-■ — Return of Old-timers.—Jake Ot tenheimer and Maurice Hartwell are among the old-timers who have re cently returned to tlie Base Range. The former has been visiting Fana iiiilit. Cornucopia and other mining excitements, while the latter has been on an extended trip through South America. They both come hack to slay, believing that Kureka is a long way ahead of anything they have seen in their travels. Fixing Up.—John Shnonbar must bo fixing lip a permanent home out at Silverado. Yesterday we noticed a four horse team loading at the ware rooms of \V. P. lla>kell it Co. with any amount of solid walnut furnitme and other articles necessary to a first class house keeping outfit. Mr. Shoen bar has a splendid mine ami wo pre sume he has concluded thut it w ill do to slick to for awhile. Will Close.—Dave Rosenberg's Sil ver Brick Saloon will close to-day for repairs. The establishment is to be thoroughly overhauled and greatly improved. Among otiier things, llie partitions are to be removed and the main saloon considerably enlarged. It will probably require some days to complete the work. To ArrEAK Satl'ri>ay Njobt.— Vivian, of whom mention has been frequently made of late In these col umns, is to a| pear at Bigelow’s Hall Saturday night in a grand variety en tertainment. He writes Manager Bigelow that ho will not appear here luit three nights. He is now in Aus tin. -■ ■ - - - Singular Knock-Down.—A couple of gentlemen on lower Main street had a bit of a row, theother day, w hen one of them knocked the other into the watering trough, near by. He scram bled out looking pretty much as though he had just passed through a disastrous cloudburst. Off for a Hunt.—Dr. Chamblin, Luther Clark and Hiram Johnson are off this morning fora hunt. They go to tlie South Fork of the Humboldt and expect to he absent a week or ten days. Doth tisli and game are said to plentiful in the direction indicated. Tub New IIkicks.—Jo. Tognini's fire proof, on North Main street, ap proaches completion, while Frank Abudja's, on South Bnel street, is just about getting the finishing touches. There Is some talk of other fire-proofs being erected before the season is over. Tiie Lecture.—The lecture of Mrs. Farnsworth, at the Silver Brick Hall, last night, drew a fair house. We were not present, but understand that sho bandied her subject well. Ax Upset.—Two gentlemen in a buggy were upset on the grade above the Lemmon mill the other day. The damage resulting from the accident was nominal. KkmoVaL.—Having purchased hr.
