THE NEW DEAL THAT WILL BE GIVEN THE COUNTY OFFICERS TOMORROW, Sketches of Outs *■*«! To-morrow is tlio (lay fixed by law for the newly elected officials to assn me charge of their respective offices. There will be nearly a clean sweep of the present incum bents of the county buildings. Their familiar faces will be seen again ill the business walks of life, that have been vacated by their successors. They have served long and faithfully; the affairs of the county un der their supervision have been judi ciously managed, and no set of county of ficials ever retired from public po sitions to private life who carried with them such universal esteem and respect as will those who leave the service of our people to-morrow. The incoming officers are all favorably known, and will doubtless vacate their places in time with as creditable a record as that of their predecessors. IH itrlct Judge. Judge Colo retires from the bench with a record of which ho may well be proud. He has won a reputation as a bold and fearless jurist, and but few of his decisions have ever been reversed by a higher tri bunal. Previous to bis election as Judge be served in the Legislature as a member from White Pino county. It is bis inten tion to locate shortly in Eureka, and be will once more follow the practice of law. His place on the bench will be filled by H. P. BIVZ9. Judge llives was boru in Charlotte county, Virginia, April C, 1847, and is con sequently but 31 years old. He studied law in Danville, and was admitted to prac tice in 1867. He camo to Nevada in 1363, and in 1870 was elect 'd District Judge of the Seventh District, and was probably one <if the youngest men who ever donned the judicial ermine in this or any other State. He was elo ;te 1 a< Jill'; of this district, comprised of Eureka. White? Pine and Lin coln counties, at the late election. He is a close student, a man of great versatility, courteous iu mauuer and obliging in dispo sition, and in the coming four years of his judicial life will add to his already well earned laurels. DLtriel Attorney. George W. Merrill, the present District Attorney, will he his own successor. He is a native of Maine, and was District At torney of Nyc county, for four years, pre vious to his arrival in Eureka, in 1870. He was elected as District Attorney for Eureka county in 1874, and has been re-elect'd twioc. which is sufficient proof that he is an abie and acceptable officer. Ttie fiber!If a Office Will be vacated to-morrow by Mr. Sias. He will carry with him into private life the well wishes of every person with whom he has conic in contact, and none will miss Ids genial face an 1 frank greeting more frequently than the Sentinel’s reporter. Mr. Sias is a New Yorker by birth, having been born in Wyoming county, in that State, February 13th, 1327. His father emigrated to Michigan iu 1832, and from thence to Wisconsin in 18 49. Itt 1356 Mr. Sias concluded to try his fortune In Cali fornia. Ho remained iu that Ht&tO until 1370, when he removed to Eureka, and was elected Sheriff of Eureka county iu 1876. He has been an able officer, and has performed his duties fearlessly. Jlo will be succeeded by MATTHEW KYLE* No man is bettor or more favorably | known in this section of tlio State than Matt. Kyle. Honorable in all business ; dealings, correct ami upright in private life. Ik* baa won the eaten in of the commu nity at large, and of political friends and | foe*. He enters upon bis duties possess ing the confidence of the public— a confi dence that will in no way In? abused. < 0111113 C lerk. Judge F. H. Harmon, the retiring Clerk, wan born in Charlotte county, Virginia, November 14, 1823. Ho went to Califor nia during the excitement that followed tho gold discoveries in 1819.

In 1883 he re moved to Nevada, and for live years lie served as Justice of the Peace in Lauder county, and whs elected District Attorney of that county in 1870. He removed to Eureka in 1871. was appointed Clerk when the comity was formed, and has been re elected twice. He has proven an efficient, I obliging officer, and is universally es teemed by all with whom he i* brought in contact, lie will be succeeeed by E. R. DO DOE. Mr. Dodge was born in Wisconsin, in 1853, and removed to AuKtin, in this State, in 1809. He went to Piocho in 1872, and came to Eureka iu the Maine year.

After serving two terms as County Re corder, Mr. R. L. Chase retires to private life with the knowledge that the business of none of the public offices has l>een more faithfully or more ahlv administered than the one over which ho lias presided for four years. H - is from tho famous Mo hawk Valley, in New York State, and came to Eureka in 1871. He was elected Re corder in 1874, and re-elected in 1870. Perhaps no more worthy successor could have Incu found for his |MiKition than BEN C. LEW, Whose business qualities and experience peculiarly tit him for the place. Mr. Levy was born in France, in 1840. His parents removed to America when l)cn was one year old. Ho served three years in the Union army, and followed the fortunes of the Army of the Potomac. He went to California in 1805 ; thence to White Pine iu 1869, and came to Eureka during the same year. Ho has filled the position of Secretary to both the K. K. ami Phcuix Mining Companies, and is noted as a thor ough going, capable business man. Trei%«iircr. Kichard Hyland is a New Yorker; came to this coast in ’53 ; located in Secret Can yon, in this county, in the fall of 1869; was elected Treasurer in 1876, and tilled the office to the general satisfaction of our people. He is a contractor and a builder— a business he has followed since his arrival on the coast. His successor, HAMPEL COOPKB, Is a native of New York City, and was horn in 1835. Ho went to California in 1854 and engaged in mining and merchandizing, and for 12 successive years held various positions of honor and trust in Shasta county. Since 1865 he has been in the em ploy of Wells, Fargo <fc Co., ami lias been in Eureka some four years. His business qualifications are unquestioned, and his reputation as a conscientious, upt ight man is second to none in Eureka, and lie will till his place with credit to himself and his constituents. Neliool Superintendent. A. E. Kayo, the retiring County Super intendent of Schools, was elected to the 1 k ofttec in the fall of *74, and >yaa re-elected ' in ’76. He has filled the position with credit and ability, and leaves a fine bcIiooI fund and several well-organized schools to the care of his successor. Mr. Kaye is a native of Genova Lake, Wisconsin ; is 28 years of age, and is a teacher by profession. He came to Eureka in the spring of ’71, and has ever since (with but a short inter mission) had charge of the public schools of this place. His snccessor is GIDEON J. HCANDLAND. Mr. Scandland is a native of Illinois, and came to Eureka as Assistant Postmaster in 1874, and is a living w itness to the fact that a hard-shell Democrat can hold a position under a fraudulent Republican Adminis tration. He lias proven such a courteous and obliging official—two attributes rarely found in a Federal office-holder— that the people concluded to promote him. It was an honor worthily bestowed, and if Gideon don’t do himself and the county credit by his administration of the affairs of the public schools, then will wo confess that we are neither a “prophet, nor the son of a prophet.” Administrator an:l Coroner. Dr. A. C. Bishop, who has administered the affairs of these two offices the past two years, was born in Vandalia, Illinois, in 1839. He entered the army in April, 1801, under the first call for troops, ami was pro moted through all grades from private to Captain. He is a graduate of the Cincin nati Medical College.

Ho emigrated to Virginia City in 1873, where he remained until 1875, when he sought and found a conge nial sphere in the classic shades of Mineral Hill. He soon ingratiated himself into the good will of the inhabitants and was elected Justice of the Peace, a position he has just resigned in order to accept his present position, to which he was recently elected. He is a quiet, unobtrusive gentle man, and will make an efficient officer. 4 <»u:ity AweMor. Hank Knight, lirst saw the light in Kingston, Canada, in 1810, and came to Nevada in 1803, serving as Deputy Sheriff of Elko county under Sheriff Scott in 1872-3.

Hays the Elko Independent; “The Eure ka Sentinel publishes an article from the Bodio Standard in reference to the Chartz case, in which tho Sentinel was accused of having given a * dastardly biased des. cription ’ of the killing of Rickar by Cliartz; which description, it is alleged, bail the effect of producing such a preju dice against Chartz that it was impossible for him to get justice in Eureka county. Now, we read all the accounts published In the Sentinel in reference to that mat ter, and positively deny that any of them contained anything calculated to excite an undue prejudice against Chartz further than the simple facts which were proven iu court. It is a fact, however, that the papers generally, throughout the State, contained articles strongly censuring him, and if any undue prejudice' was excited (which we deny), it was caused by other papers, and not by the Sentinel. The Sentinel just ly remarks : ‘Should Mr. Chartz’ friends desire to secure his release, they are justi fied in using every honorable effort to do so, but they will hardly further his inter ests by maligning those whose object was to do justice, without regard to any sur rounding influences.’ ” A rioasnul Mur prise. While Miss Nettie Cohen was out, bid ding good-by before going to Virginia City, her many friends, whom she could not And as home, had quietly taken possession of her house and waited for the “to be sur prised youug lady.” To say that she was surprised, would be putting it mild.
