Doctor Darrah, says the Reno State "Journal,” an old citizen of Washoe coun ty, died Saturday afternoon at the County Poor House. Darrah was a very good dentist, and a mail woll read in politics. Whisky impaired his health and useful ness, and opium degenerated him, gradu ally undermining his mental powers and , robbing his system of healthful life. He might have made life a success.

Other years this was uot the style. Mr. John L. Walker, who was badly leaded, and confined to his room for some time, is getting around again. A scrimmage occurred at the depot last evening, between tbe hackmen and the hotel runners. We did not learu which got the best of it.

Democratic Member* Take a De cided Stand—The Central Pacific to be Made the Scapegoat. [Special to the Eureka Daily Sentinel.] Carson, February 2C, 1879. In the Benate, the Central Pacific bill was referred to the Railroad Committee. The maximum rate is fixed at four cents per ton#por mile. It will probably pass on Friday or Saturday. Steve GAgc is holding forth to-night in the Assembly Chamber on freights and fares. The Democratic metnliera last night pledged themselves to a man to stand by the Woodburn and Lewis bills. It seems evident, however, that theloeal bill will not pass. The Central Pacific is to be made the scapegoat for all the railroad sins in this State. THE Pl'RIM BALL Preparli!? for Hint Interesting Event—The Prises to be Given. Hebrew circles in Eureka are just now agitated by preparations for the masque ball to be given at the Opera House oil Purim night, which falls on the 6th of March, and which promises to eclipse any previous ball that has ever taken place in our town. Borne magnificent and costly costumes are in course of manufacture, and additional zest has been given the affair by the promise of a prize to tlie lady and gentleman who shall appear in the most original and best assumed character. The lady w ill receive a handsome enameled gold watch, and the gentleman a diamond pin. The prizes are now on exhibition at Mr. Stcler's jewelry store, and he will cheerfully exhibit them to any who may call. A full band has been engaged to fur nish music, and the committee, consisting of Messrs. Ben. C. Levy, L. Banner, M. J. Franklin, Sol. Asliim and D. Lesser, are making every possible preparation to add to its success. Purim day is generally ob served something after the manner of New Year, and is celebrated in honor of Queen Esther, who rescued her people from the oppression of Hainan through her inter course with King Ahasuerns. The follow ing reference is made to it in the ninth chapter of Esther: ‘ Therefore the Jew's of all the villages, that dwelt in the unwalled towns, made the fourteenth day of the month Adar a day of gladness and feasting, and a good day, and of sending portions to one an other.” TOMBSTONE DISTRICT. A Miner'* Opinion ol an Arison* (amp. A letter has been received by a Ruby Hill miner, from Tombstone District, Arizona, from which we have been kiudly permitted to make the following extract: I am at last in a land of sunshine, where winter’s storms never howl. Although here but six days, I have seen enough of the mines to be convinced that it is oue of the best camps on the American Continent. Bodie is but an infant compared to what tins camp will be one year from to-day. It lies 75 miles southeast from Tusocn, and five miles east of the San Pedro river, the south fork of the Gila. The ores are quartz and gray carbonate, about one-half milling, the balance smelting. The ore is of high grade, and experts pronounce it worth $200 per ton, hut I should put it at a less figure. Some of the finest top veins I have ever ieeu are to he found here, and run all the way from oue to ten feet in width. The formation is porphyry, gran ite and limestone. As promising as the camp is. it is the slowest place I have ever struck. There are only three small stores, three saloons, one butche rshop, two blacksmithshopK, one boarding-lionse, one feed stable, and an assay office. The town is a curious one, and 100 teuts greet the eye of the stranger. The weatlu-r lu re now is about like Oc tober in Nevada, warm days and cool , !;; 'lltS. I If this camp was located in Nevada there J'ould be 10,000 people here, but capital end populations seems to avoid tliis Terri fc’^y. __ M tinlm! Rehearsal. The lie no Gazette says: The ninth re hearsal of the Department of Music of lii:\hop Whitaker’s School for Girls passed off >Itfy pleasantly and satisfactorily last eyear03- Everything went off smoothly and ^orderly, and showed that the whole management was guided hv a wise and firm V1&nd. We cannot comment on all tht pie< ' * *nd performers, although much that is\ commendatory co,,ld be said of each, v he overture “d’Oberon” was a fine qnairtette, and was finely rendered. “Robin Vvdair.” a piano and violin duct betwt u \thn Misses Manheim. was well done. jvfy** Oussie, with patience and practice, wjiH make an excellent violinist. •‘CaebmicliV* Caprice,” by Miss Lou Beards lec, was wePl rendered, and showed that voting ladv to l»c an accomplished per former. __ _ I,pi* I « Vote On It. Now, says t0*e Virginia “Chronicle,” that there is a fair )oroapeet that the President will veto the vtnti-Chineae bill, the pro posed law of Sdnator Cassidy, to provide for an expression1 of opinion on the Chi nese question at flbe next general election in this State, should he promptly passed by the Legislature Wo a»o perpetually misrepresented at* l^e East in respect to this subject, all of I he papers and speakers saving that it is not\ the property-holding class, but only the fcoalUwags and hood lums of the West wh\> °PP°»a Chinese im migration. Even th* maudlin poet Joa quin Miller has the Wudadty to write to the New York “Triburif •" »aJ»ng that it is not the decent people M * ha Pacific Coast who are in antagon »:ii\ with John. The only way to offset this ape* bring the truth boldly out, is to take a fa}* the ques tion of immigration or no\i,umigration. An Krrsr.’ Fred. Gorman claims that's^11 injustice was done him in the article refcrWQK to the arrest of Gregory Ford, and explaiuct? the matter satisfactorily. We knew noth ing of the merits of the case, and did not even know who made the arrest. It ap pears that a charge has been banging against Ford for some months. We have no desire to do Mr. Gorman or anybody else an injustice, and so cheerfully make the correction. Diamond District. Mr. E. E. Phillips, Superintendent of the Enterprise Mining and Irrigating Com pany, whose property is located in Dia mond district, is in town. He says that the tunnel of the company is now in a distance of 200 feet, and that all the requisite ma chinery has been purchased, and other preparations made to push the work for ward with vigor and dispatch. His faith in the ultimate success of the company*s scheme is simply sublime. The Gullibility Bill. Carson dispatches state that the bill making gambling licenses payable monthly instead af quarterly, charging $100 for the first month, $75 for the second, and allow ing games to bo played on the first floor, passed the Senate yesterday. There is little doubt but that the bill will become a law. The Irish In America. It is understood, says the lteno “Ga zette,” that a number of the chief citizens of Reno are taking steps to induce the tal ented young orator, Hugh J. Mohan, to come and deliver his celebrated lecture on “The Irish in America" in Reno. This is a worthy undertaking, for Mr. Mohan is a graceful and polished speaker, and is thor oughly familiar with bis subject. Let him be invited by all means. TIKOmA EXCITED. An F.xrlted Hwllaf-Towlaf Vca* gcaaee Agnlnit Their Rrpreaen tallvM. The Virginia Chronicle gives at length the proceedings of the meeting at Virginia, on Thursday evening, upon the reception of the news chat the Committee of Four teen had reported against the Woodburn bill. We make the following extracts : Yesterday afternoon, when it became known that the Committee of Fourteen had reported against the Woodbnrn bill, the excitement in this city, which had all day been intense in anticipation of just such action, then began to glow to a white heat, and citizens called upon the Commit t e of Twenty-three and asked that an in dignation meeting be called as soon as possibe. Arrangements were speedily made, and the following hand-bill printed : MASS MEETING TO-NIGHT ! REBUKE TIIE KNAVES—LET THE PEOPLE SPEAK 1 Every consumer and taxpayer on the Comstock is invited to attend the anti-rail road mass meeting to-night, in front of Odd Fellows’ Hall building, at 7 o’clock. The Committee of Twenty-three. It was suggested that at the bottom of the dodger the words, “The 601 are cor dially invited to be present,” should be printed, but after some discussion it was decided that such language would be in cendiary and inadvisable. At 7 o’clock there was a big bonefire blazing in front of the Odd Fellows’ building, a band was dis coursing from Dr. Collin’s balcony, and crowds of citizens were moving toward the spot. At half-past seven it is estimated that over TWO THOUSAND people Were on the spot. The meeting had been called so suddenly that little or no prep aration had been made. Col. R. II. Taylor, and other speakers, addressed the meeting, and their fiery de nunciations of the Coumittee were received with yells of applause bv the crowd. JAMKH H. GRAHAM Then read the following resolutions, which were adopted amid genera! applause : Whereas, Every member of the Legisla ture now in Carson was elected on solemn pledges, made in convention, indorsing a strong anti-railroad platform, and that we have now every reason to believe that many, if not a majority, have been pur chased with coin by the hired lobby of the Virginia & Truckee Railroad, Resolved, That we hereby denounce the corruption and cowardice of the Commit tee of Fourteen, who have bartered away tho rights of the people, as the most dis graceful and contemptible exhibition of mendacity ever perpetrated by the repre sentatives of a free people. Resolved, That it is the sense of the tax payers and consumers of Storey county that our representatives now in Carson vote, one and all, for the passage of the Woodbnrn and Lewis bills. Resolved. That those who violate their soleihn pledges in this respect are meaner than theives. Resolved, That the member from Storey county on the Committee of Fourteen be requested immediately to resign his seat in the Legislatue, as he no longer represents his constituents. “Do you know his name?" cried Mr. Graham. “It is L-a-n-e. That spells Lane; don't it ?" (Derisive yells and groans and cries of “Lynch him !’’] Resolved,’ That the Storey county mem bers who will fall down at this time are hereby demanded by their constituents to resign ins tan ter, and never again to show tlieir honest faces on the Comstock. Resolved, That these resolutions be at once forwarded to Carson. Mr. Graham then proceeded to say that he was in favor of the people taking the law into their own hands if they failed to obtain a remedy for the wrongs under which they were suffering. You elected at your last election, by your free suffrages, a bodv of men to go to Carson who pledged as solemnly a9 men could in convention, that they w’ould every one of them advo cate the passage of some bill to relieve the people of the Comstock from this iniquit ous, grasping monopoly, Ihe Virginia k Truckee Railroad. Have they done it? f Cries of “No! no!" | No, they have not, and it is your duty to see that they do it. It will be the fault of the people upon the Comstock to-night, and to-morrow night and the next day, if that Woodburn bill is not passed. (Applause.] If yon be men true to yourselves and determined to make these men stick up to tlieir pledges ; if you are determined to teach them that solemn pledges taken before the people cannot be broken with impunity, you must do it now. [Great applause.] If you do not these legislative thieves will go back and take coin aud sell you. | Groans. ] You kuow the remedy. | Cries of “Hang the dogs; string ’em up !" ] If you cannot do anything else, I say yes, hang them. (Ap plause. ] Fellow-citizens, the sound in the sand lots in San Francisco eight months ago was a terror to the monopolists, and when Dennis Kearney—[applause]—with his shrill, clear voice, cried aloud, “Hemp! hemp! hemp!" there was not a moneyed thief that did not tremble in his hoots. | Cheers. ] I am in favor of the people—if there be no other remedy—going to Carson and demanding of them in thunder tones that they keep their pledges. (Wild cheers and cries of “we will.**] Yes, felllow-citi zens, if we have no o+her remedy let us organize a band of consumers and pro ducers and march down to Carson. Every man that is willing to take the old trail aud go down to Carson to-morrow raise his hand. A STARTLINO SPECTACLE. In response to this request, 2,000 pair of hands immediately shot up from the crowd and waved like a forest, while at the same time a roar of wild execration arose from the surging mass. Cries of “Hang them, the thieving liars and traitors !" rose at in tervals. It was two hoars before the crowd dis persed, and the excitement was at fever heat. BLOODSHED AVERTED. The idea at first was to issue a proclama tion Calling on all interested to form in line on C struct and start for Carson. Several of the citizens who had been in vited to co-operate with the committee, estimated that 1,500 men could be counted on to start, and if that was done, it would be augmented to perhaps double that number. As the procession passed .through Gold Hill at least a thousand radi** men would stand in, thus making oue o» th* mo«t formidable demonstra tions ever * *he coast. The people felt that they w«. ’^Ut to be sold out and betrayed and wer thoroughly roused. Such a determined >- itheWHg had not been seen in Virginia years, au'cL the cry in the street was “On kv Carson !M Mr. Lewis, of the firm of Lewis k Deal, then made a speech consoling moderation. From what he could judge of the feeling, lie thought that ihe people were intensely in earnest. A public demonstration, such as a procession of determined men, might be a necessity. AN OMINOUS BEPOBT. It was reported at a late honr last night that the “601" were reorganising for the purpose of protecting the community against this flagrant outrage. A W«k Strike. The Austin Rneillt says that the Alex ander Company, at Grantaville, encoun tered a rich body of sulphuret ore on Thursday last in the south lower tunnel, a quantity of which has been forwarded to San Francisco. This find in the Alexander may be regarded as valuable, as it is below water level and at a greater depth than heretofore worked, being, we believe, something over 300 leet below the surface. The mill is said to be doing good work. Altogether the outlook for the Alexander is good. Another Slower. Below we give another conundrum. We are authorized to offer a handsome ohrorao to any one who sees the point: Advantage of partnership—It makes all business transactions leagueal. Dissolution ren ders it in-i-quit-ous. ■TATE AMD MEIWHBODIIOOD. Coadtaacd Item* Uleaaed from Oa EitlwaiM. Whooping eongh is prevalent id Reno. Peach tree* in t^e vicinity nf Frank town, Waahoe county, are in bloom. Carson society is scandalized by the fact that 8. Scoville had bis watch stolen at a recent church fair in that place. Major Jack Stratman was unanimously elected Chief Engineer of the Bodie Fire Department, a few days since. It is said that a snfRcient quantity of cocoons was raised in Utah county, U. T., last season, to make 500 yards of silk. The editor of the Bodie "Standard" makes tha following double shot: “We have never Been Daggett; and if Deacon Parkinson can get 31 votes to his two, for good looks, we never want to." The material for a paper to be published in Paradise by J. J. Hill A Co., proprie tors of the “Silver State,” has been pur chased in San Francisco, and will be im mediately forwarded to its destination. According to the Virginia "Stage" Wash ington’s birthday was celebrated on the Comstock by the Emmet and Washington Guards parading, and the Gold Hill “News” suspending publication.
