A protest was entered yesterday in the

Francisco, against the application for a
patent to the Banner mine.
REPUBLICAN DOIX0S.
LMt Night'* IpecehM at the Opera
Haaee—DooIIn Bay* Little, bat
Mlfheli Talk* Uaf.
The meeting was organized by electing
C. D. Stuart as President of the evening.
A list of Vice Presidents was then elected,
as follows : C. O. Hubbard, G. W. Fuller,
Capt. Bell, Capt. Young, Thos. Douglas,
C. C. Wallace, Wm. Ulrick, J. Vander
lieth, Dave Rosenberg, A. Randolph, Jas.
Kyle, Wm. Daugherty and Wm. Mulick.
E. M. Bell was declared Secretary, and
then the President introduced Mr. Wm.
Doolin.
Mr. Dooliu said that he had been down
to the “ Golden City by tlio Sea,” and
there he had caught such a cold that he
could not talk much. He had been de
picted as not having much brains, but he
was satisfied with the quality and quantity
he possessed ; he was sorry to see the old
flag (which was strung along the footlights
of the stage) in its present position ; he
wanted to see it floating in the breeze, and
it remained for the people of Eureka to
hoist it aloft. The enthusiasm was not
very marked, and Mr. Doolin sat down.
President Stewart now referred pleas
antly to Mr. Mighels, and introduced him.
Mr. Mighels said he would like to slip
silently into the office of Lieutcuant Gov
ernor of the State of Nevada, hut the peo
ple wouldn’t let him, and now he proposed
to get even by wearing thpm out; he
would give them talk ’till they cried
enough. He then started in on the his
tory of the Bullion Tax law; the trouble in
regard to this tax commenced in the Fall
of 1876, when Gracey seized the Bonanza
bullion and locked it up for taxes due
Storey county. A suit was brought by the
Bonanza outfit, but Gracey got away with
it for the people of Storey county. The
case was then carried into the Supreme
Court, and while the State legislators were
elected to meet the following winter, and
many of them went there pledged to vote
for the Bonanza Compromise bill. Mr.
Mighels reod the law, also the bill which
it was proposed to get through at that ses
sion. Mr. Mighels went to that State Leg
islature pledged against the compromise,
but he was released by the property-hold
ers of Ormsby county—men who* repre
sented at least 5 1-6 of the property of
that county. Inasmuch as he had voted
for that Compromise bill, and had been
accused of violating a pledge, he felt con
strained to make explanations; the reso
lution in the Republican State Convention
about leaving the laws intact suited him.
There was a circular, whisking aboat on
the breeze, that pretended to show him op
as almost the father of Chinamen, but he
showed that be was the father of the
only actual lawful action ever taken in
our State against allowiug the Chinamen
any hand among us as men. Daggett was
the representative of the stars and stripes—
Deal that of the stars and bars; Daggett
was the representative of the enduring
cause—Deal of the lost cause. Jones had
placed our silver on a par with gold. Kin
kead had already been here, and the people
of Eureka had only to look at him to vote
for hint, and he had no doubt Eureka
would give Kiukesd 150 majority. As for
himself, he wanted the little office he was
after; his opponent was a good man, but,
unfortunately, he was a Democrat, and
there was no use of people throwing away
their votes on him, as Mighels was sure of
m iim umi.
General Kittrell was of that cIshm who
are proud of their appetites for Yankees;
the General didn’t get his title in the war ;
he buckled on a corkscrew and went tip
into Oregon to flaunt the rebel flag over a
whisky grocery, and run an injun faro
game on a raw-hide lay-out.
Mr. Mighels made the usual closing re
marks, and then retired, amid cheers. The
Opera House was comfortably tilled, but,
as has been characteristic of all the Repub
lican gatherings here, during the present
campaign, the proceedings dragged along
and were devoid of that wide-awake spirit
that denotes a lively interest. A good
hand, like that from itqby Hill, helps them
out wonderfully.
Tybo Correspondence.
Tybo, October 22, 1878.
Editor Sentinel: Sir—Understanding
that Mr. Deal will not visit this place, I
send you the following extract, verbatim,
from Mr. Daggett's speech made to the
voters of this town ou the 18th instant.
You can use it or not, as you think proper,
but taking into consideration the fact that
Mr. Deal challenged Mr. Daggett to can
vass the State with him, which challenge
Mr. Daggett declined, the Democrats here
tliiuk the following language, used by Mr.
Daggett behind Mr. Deal's back, is out
rageous.
Mr. Daggett, in speaking of the extracts
from the Enterprise of 1869, used by Mr.
Deal in some of his speeches, said : “Mr.
Deal knew I did not write them ; he lied
when he attributed them to me ; he lies
every time he reads them upon the stump,
and 1 am prepared here, to his face, and
everywhere and anywhere to hurl tho lie in
his throat; yea, to cram it to the bottom of
his jaundiced and seditious liver, and
there let it fester and gangrene until the
stinking odor that exudes from bis foul
lips will sicken every man within half a
mile of him.” I hardly think Mr. Daggett
would have used this language had Mr.
Deal been with him. Respectfully,
Tybo Democrat.
Work at the Iticlimoii'.l.
The grounds about tho Richmond fur
naces are liberally covered with heavy
timbers, and on every stick sits a carpen
ter, pegging away with chisel an l mallet.
Of new machinery, we noticed yesterday
a couple of blowers and a double acting
“bucket-plunger” steam putnn, similar in
make to that in use at the Phcuix, about
the premises. A large force of men were
sacking the coal which was saved from the
fire; men were clearing away the rubbish
and surveying for the new railroad track;
a cast-iron boitorn was being put in place
for one of the stone furnaces and the stone
cutters were arranging for the rapid con
struction of the furnace*. It will take
about two weeks’ time to get things in run
uiug order, we predict.
New York L«a4 Market,
A New York paper, under date of the
12th instant, thus reviews the lead market:
The business has only been in a small way,
as there is an inclination to accumulate
stocks, at $3 50fi£3 60, the market closing
at $3 60. The position is quite artificial,
and but little indication of an active de
mand, a grand break looks probable before
the winter posses. The Han Francisco
Commercial Herald of October 3d says:
“The City of Peking tor Hong Kong car
ried 481,214 pounds of pig lead.” Mr. J.
B. Meador’s circular, just received, shows
that the shipments of lead from Utah for
the first nine months of this year mark a
falling' IT of 9,329 785 pounds, equal to4,16>
tons, as compared with tho like period of
1877.
The Democrats eu Ruby Hill.
The Miners' Union Htll at Ruby Hill,
laat night, waa crowded to its utmost
capacity by the boys who dwoll at that alti
tnd>, to hear Messrs. Deal and Kittrell.
We are told that Mr. Kittrell won many
votes by his brilliant speech on the issues
in question. Mr. Deal opened the meet
ing and answered the charges made by Mr.
Daggett emphatically, and to the entire
satisfaction of his listeners. This is the
second time Democrats have been speech
making on the Hill during this canvass.
Contract Csslptsa.l.
As General Connor, the (Superintendent
of the Charter Tunnel Company, waa
called to Ran Francisco on important busi
ness, the contract to run two hundred feet
was not given to advertisers. Contractors
will be able to put in bids until bis return,
which will be on the 4th of November. I
■«udM St Hchmldt’s Brewery In
Full Operation.
The trial is fairly over with Mende* A
Schmidt's brewery ; everything is working
splendidly. Mr. Halse, who put up the
same boiler in place for Casper Schmidt
over at Hamilton four years ago. set it for
operation here and, for a boiler of 700
gallons capacity, it could not l>e better
placed. Its arrangement for utilizing
every iota of heat can not be better ex
plained than by saying that in three-quart
ers of an hour from the starting of the lire
the contents of the cauldron were bubbling
and boiling furiously, to the astonishment
of the witnesses. There is a cooler of vast
dimensions in the southwest corner of the
brewery, tubs and vuta in convenient ar
ray ; pipes to conduct the liquids hither
and thither, as the requirements need, and
with everything new it looks very inviting
to our beer drinkers.
Pure spring water is used, and now that
they are fairly started, it won’t be long be
fore his beer will come before our people for
inspection. Joe lias not built that cool,
roomy chamber in the side of the moun
tain for nothing; the beer has to lie there
for a season that it may come forth lit to
drink—that it may acquire that age which
all beer should have.
Although there are many improvements
yet to be made about this brewery, they
will be made rapidly. The grounds about
are being leveled down to a nice grade
from the street back; the old buildings,
that formerly cumbered the ground, are
making quite a collection of respectable
houses on the hillside owned by Joe
Mendes.

Great fun yesterday afternoon on Main
street -a kettled dog rushing down the
street, and five hundred men on the side
walk and in the middle of the street look

We stated, the other day, that there were
nine registered who had not complied with
the law. In that assertion wo were mis
taken. It was a mistake of nine in the
numbering.
A candidate, who must have thought he
was talking to a Comstock crowd, pulled
out a “half,” and handing it to one of a
half dozen about him, said: “ Take this
and buy cigars for the crowd.”
There was a man sitting for an hour in
Justice Cromer’s office, yesterday, trying
to think under which one of his aliases lie
registered, while on a “bit of a spree,” i
last week.
Mr, Henry Mau yesterday put a “head”
on the fellow who has for several days been
palming off bogus specimens on the un
suspecting. The feHow lit out at the
earliest moment after getting away from
Henry.
The Recent Mioo I lux Affair at Dear!
wool.
The Deadwood Pioneer of the 15th has
an account of the tragedy recently enacted
there, of the shooting of Mr. John Rogers
by the notorious Mrs. Elizabeth Lovell,
and who in return was killed by Rogers.
In commenting on the sad affair, the
Pioneer says:
Bad as was the serious shooting on Sun
day, it is not without its lesson. It
teaches us the potent fact that people who
make threats should be regarded as
dangerous characters and put under
due restraint. The termagant who long
has Iwcn a terror is dead! None
mourn her loss! She died through her
own folly. She courted death, and the
av< nging hand of justice struck her down
while her own vile hands were reeking red
with blood—the blood of an innocent,
peaceable citizens!
It was on the sacred Sabbath when one
of our most estimable citizens was at home
with his family. He was reposing peace
ably in his nicely nestled cottage on a nar
row knoll when he was brutally shot by a
bold, had woman. She is dead and sin*
deserved the death which so speedily over
took her. As the poor victim lay upon his
conch writhing in agonizing pi in. with his
devoted wife bending over him and the
great stream of tears coursing down her
cheeks, the hearts of all present were moved
to sincere sorrow. The sentiment and the
sympathy of the community is with the
mau who was so cruelly and unjustly
wounded.
The Speaking To-night.
At present there is a heavy combination
of Democratic orators in Eureka. Hon.
W. E. F. Deal, our Congressional candi
date ; Oen. Kiitrell, candidate for Attorney
General; Hon. A. C. Ellis and H. K.
Mitchell will address the Democracy of Eu
reka to-night at the Opera House. It
has been determined to put each speaker
to the fore in succession, and limit them to
short speeches. The result will be a va
riety in eloquence and argument, and a
red-hot succession of live campaign ora
tory. Let this occasion be marked by a
healthy outpouring of prime Democratic
principles and voters, and the result will
be in keeping with the occasion.
A Beauty.
Most of our ladies have looked with envy
upon Jimmy’s sweet-potato plant, in
Fiske's confectionery on Main street, and
more or less of them have bought a yam to
crowd into a whisky glass or drown in a
bucket of water, in the vain hope of get
ting such a “little beauty, all in full
bloom,” as Jimmy has trained for that
window. Jimmy iuforms us that those
lovely blossoms can be had at 6 cents per
dozen. He has got a few boxes left, and
it only requires a little mucilage to make
them stick on the potato sulk for weeks at
a time.
Mmr in the Republican Ranks.
There wan a little play at the Republican
meeting last night, which many did not
understand. It has been customary for
the Colonel, or some of his clan, to pull
out a list of officers to preside over the de
liberations, but Tommy Douglas, much to
the amusement of many present, chipped
in about the Vice Presidents to be elected,
and choked off the “list” in the bands of
the President. r
Contract Awarded.
The Eureka Tunnel Company yesterday
awarded a contract to run two hundred
feet additional, which, when completed,
will give the work a depth of six hundred
feet, and about the same distance under
the surface.

Mr. T. Starr is canvassing Eureka for
orders to copy and enlarge photographs.
He has a number of samples of different
styles on exhibition to show the quality of
his work. The pictures are finished in oil,

SUICIDE OF MRS. LEW. W. TAYLOR.
A FIRE IN THE MOUNTAINS,
A Ctilaiainaii Stabs a White Van.
Oakland, October 23.
Mrs. Taylor, wife of Lew W. Taylor,
residing at 813 Brush street, committed
suicide last evening by taking strychnine.
She had been in poor health for a long
time, which was probably the cause of her
taking the fatal step. Slo leaves a family
of small children, whom she was unable to
care for properly.
Anaheim, October 23.
A fierce fire has been raging in the
mountains back of Anaheim for two days,
and to-night the scene is grand beyond
description. A continuous belt of fire can
be se en for eight miles. Thousands of acres
of valuable sheep feed will be destroyed,
and it is likely some bee ranches will meet
the same fate. The fire is now raging on
the Han Joaquin ranch and the loss in feed
on that ranch alone will amount to thous
ands of dollars.
Williams, October 23.
A quarrel occurred last evening, six
miles west of this place on Jack Brims’
ranch, between Brims’ Chinese cook and
his sheepherder, which resulted in the
death of the latter. The herder came in
from work at at 5:30 last evening, and
asked the cook for something to feed his
dog. The Chiu&man replied that he must
wait, there was nothing for him. Angry
words followtd, until the herder clinched
the cook. In the fight the Chinaman drew
a knife and stabbed bis antagonist in the
left lung. The Chinaman called the ranch
hands and told him what had occurred.
A man was immediately dispatch.d to this
place for a doctor and officer. The wounded
man li\ed until 9 a. m. to-day, when death
occurred. Soon after the deed was com
mitted the Chinaman left the ranch and
up to this time the officers have not suc
ceeded in capturing him. Deceased was a
native of Ireland, and had been in Mr.
Brims’ employ for the last four years.

Reno, Xev., October 23.
About half-past 8 o’clock, last night, a
fire broke out in a Chinese wash-house on
Second street, near Virginia, and in a few
minutes the building, and the one adjoin
ing, wero in flames. Two small frame
buildings wero also partially destroyed be
fore the engines arrived. The loss was
about $1,000. The origin of the tire is un
known, but carelessness in a Chinese
shanty probably explains it.
A dreadful accident occurred at half-past
10 o’clock this forenoon. As E. C. Parks,
a teamster, was crossing the Virginia A
Truekee track near the bridge, he was run
into by yard engine No. 48, and killed.
Mr. Parks had just delivered a load of bar
ley which he had brought from nf ar Janes
villo, where his home is. He had eight
horses hitched to the h«-avy wa?nna. and
was riding one of the wheelers. He had no
chance to see the track, as a long line of
flat cars, loaded with lumber, were be
tween him and the rails upon which tie
engine was backing toward the Virginia A
Truekee bridge. The tender struck the
wheeler, throwing Mr. Parks upon the
track, and the wheels of the locomotive
passed over him, cutting off both legs above
the knee, and otherwise mangling him hor
ribly. Death was instantaneous. Two of
the horses were injured so seriously as to
necessitate their being shot.

An Undeniable Trnth.
Ton deserve to suffer, and if you lead a mis
erable, unsatisfactory life in this beautiful
world, it is entirely your own fault, and there
is only one excuse for you—your unreasonable
prejudice and skepticism, which has killed
thousands. Personal knowledge and common
sense reasoning will soon show you that
Green’s August Flower will cure you of liver
complaint, or dyspepsia, with all its miserable
effects, such as sick headache, palpitation of
the heart, sour stomach, habitual costiveness,
dizziness of the head, nervous prostration, low
spirits, Ac. Its sales now reach every town on
the Western Continent, and not a druggist but
will tell you of Its wonderful cures. You esn
buy a sample bottle for 10 cents. Three doses
will relieve you.
