A Difference of Opinion and a Long Discussion. Anil the I hum I Commit too in Ap. pointed. The need of a suitable building in which to hold the session* of our District Court has long been felt by the legal fraternity and those whose interests brought them be fore the bar of Justice. Those who have romplained most bitterly of the present unsettled state of affairs, are member* of the bar, and. it gricyes us to say. the men who last evening were not apparently half #o anxious to bring about a satisfactory conclusion, as they have heretofore pro tossed. Not that they did not advocate such a course, iu a roundabout way, but by their dili&tory attendance, proved con clusively they cared more for the bewitch ing glances of a pair of bright eyes than for the county’s interests. The meeting was called for 7:30 p.m. sharp, but at that hour few of our legal or other luminaries were present, but among the number were Judge Rives, M. JJ. Bartlett, Judge Hill house, District Attor ney Merrill, W. W. Hobart, Mr. Horn. Mr. Wallace, and Commissioners Campbell and Turner. No attempt was made to organize the meeting, but a running discussion was in dulged in, in which everybody was at lib erty to express their views. It was, in fact, a sort of a love feast, where everyone expressed themselves freely, and no two men, apparently, agreed. Judge Rives stated that he was respon sible for calling the meeting. The neces sity of having a suitable building for hold ing court was apparent to all, and lawyers and clients had united in protests against the present state of affairs. Personally, it was of no interest to him how the matter was arranged, but he believed that by pur suing the proper course the difference* now existing could be satisfactorily adjusted, and some means adopted whereby the pres ent building might be completed. He hoped that those present would express their opinions, an invitation they were not slow to accept. Mr. Campbell was of the opinion that the building could be finished in 40 days, at a total expence of $45,000, in which Mr. Bartlett concurred. Mr. Horn and Mr. Hobart were not dis posed to swallow such assertion*. Mr. Bartlett asserted that the contractor could finish it for $45,000. Judge Hillhouse suggested that the county should follow the example of Dead wood. where the Judge was building one Court-house and the Commissioners an other. The meeting failed to catch the force of the Judge’s remarks. Judge Hives was only atixtnns to nave the Court-room finished, and that would require but comparatively little labor. Mr. Campbell declared that it the build ing was not completed in 40 days the Com missioners would rent a suitable place, and Judge Hives declared that if it was not he would do so on his own responsibility. Commissioner Page entered at this junc ture. and it suddenly occurred to those present that an organization had better be effected. Judge Rives was called to the chair, and the modest representative of the Sentinel and Mr. W. W. Hobart were selected as Secretaries. Judge Rives was in favor of completing the Court-honse, irrespective of anybody's interest. There was no reason why its completion should conflict with the legal rights of the contractor, whether it was finished under his supervision or not. There was a remedy for all disputed points, and justice would eventually prevail. He called on those present to act in a spirit of harmony, and to arrive at soma satisfac tory conclusion. Mr. Wren entered and suggested thst the meeting adjourn until some future time, as he desired to attend "the show." In the nemo of the Eureka Social Club, we enter a solemn protest against the ex M. C. •(leaking of it in such a flippant manner, Mr. Hillhouse and Judge Rives sug gested that Mr. Wren remain a few min utes, and that an adjournment could then he had for half an hour, to enable those present to escort their ladies to the Hall, hut Mr. Wren objected, asserting that he hadn’t made his toilet, etc. Mr. Horn didn't propose to alt around i snoozing, while young bloods were cavort ing around town with tbs damsels upon whom their affections were wasted. Before he sought bla couch ho wanted to knew exactly what the Court house would coat. No one appeared to he able to answer the question satisfactorily, and so the meeting adjourned until 8:30. 1 Mt> LASi' BthBISA. At 8:42 the Bextixel's representative again (ought the meeting-room, and found, in addition to thoao heretofore mentioned, George \V. Baker, Matt. Kyle, Johu Biker, Judge Lantlng, Mr. li. Sadler, Judge Cole, Mr. Whltton and Dick Hyland. After waiting a reasonable length of time' a messenger was dispatched to the hall in quest of Messrs. Wren and Hillhouae. The latter soon put in an appearance, and the messenger reported that the Hon. Thomas Wren would report as toon ai the quadrille waa finished. Mr. Hillhouae then took the floor, and urged that the County Commissioners be requested to advertiso' for bide and com plete the building. Mr. Hobart, with a fervency that proved his heart wit in the right place, seconded the motion. Commissioner Page was inquisitive as to how It was proposed to finish the building, by the orginal plan as sltered or otherwise. Mr. UlUbouse was not exactly prepared to answer this conundrum, but was posi tive tho building would not cost more than *47,000, Jar. DKIiSr ro»e IU * ywwiv ui umn, wanted to know if tli» old oontract was abrogated. . . . , Judge Hive#, being called upon, declined to express an opinion. Mr. Hobart was of the opinion that the County Commissioners should rise and explain. Mr. Hillhotisc said it was purely a mat ter of law. Mr. Campbell bad been trying to find out the aaine tiling for aix months, with no success, but suppoaed that the contract stood, unless the Commissioners aaw fit to change it. , Mr. Wren hereupon entered the room, and after divesting himself of his three-button white kids, proceeded to ad dress the assemblage. The honorable gon tleman desired to know whether the con tractor proposed to turn tho building over to the Commissioners, or in the event of his refusal, would the Hoard assume the re sponsibility of advertising for now- bids? The sum of *22,000 had already been paid for ti e work performed, and $15,800 more was demanded. Hid the Commissioners propose to allow the latter sum? Inlesa the contractor abandoned the building, what authority had the Commissioners to advertise for now bids? The intention of the Commissioners and contractor should he asoortaiued before any steps should be taken. Mr. IllUhou.e claimedl that the building eould bo flub had ior Bid he mean it would coat that amount in addition to what had already been expended, or did he mean that the entire cost would not exceed that sum ? It could <carcel) he possible that the gentleman latter, as *;V? »0U was already claimed h" labor performs,!, which would bsve than *lu.O00 to to expended. and did any ono present imagine it oould be com pleted for that amount? The gentleman asserted In vigorous terms that It eould no Mr. HiUhonae waa satisfied that the con tractor, when 1 e (ailed to finish too building, had forfeited his contract. He wanted tho building finished at aa little coat aa poaaible. and believed that some means could be devised whereby the desired end oould be attained without unnecessary BiVea agreed with Mr. Wren that the intentions of the Commissioners and contractor should be ascertained. There were two men present who could answer the question satisfactorily as far as the con tractor was concerned, and ho called on Judge Lansing, the attorney of Mr. Boun gard, and Mr. Dick Byland, to give the necessary information. Both the gentlemen declined to accede to the request. Mr. Hillhouse finally moved that a com mittee of three bo appointed to wait on Mr. Boungard, and to ascertain whether he proposed to deliver the building to the Commissioners or not. Mr. Wren moved that the committee be instructed to inquire of the Commissioners what they proposed to do in the event of his refusal, and whether they would adver tise for bids, a.»d proceed to complete the building in ease he should do so. After a long discussion, in which Messrs. Baily. Baker, Wren, Hillhouse and others 1 took part, the amendment and resolution was adopted. The chair appointed as such committee Messrs. Wren. Hillhouse and Whitton, after which the meeting adjourned until this evening at 7:SD. when it will again moot in the Judge's chamber over the Jail to hear the committee’s report. ■-♦ — -- FLIK IH ST.

Editor Sentinel—The non-legislative vinter invariably renders the capital very iniet and somnolent, but tlie present sea on promises to be an unusually dreary ind unsociable one. Many a formerly gay tnd brilliantly lighted drawing room, vhere the strains of exquisite music and he well bred, charming laughter of fasb onably attired and cultured society people vere heard, will remain dark aim cheerless luring this season. The fasciuatingsounds <f refined revelry will be missed in those daces, and all because Sierra Nevada is not oiling at uppish figures. Those who have icretofore regarded it a solemn duty to five one or two elegant and costly cuter ainmenta during the season, have all argely invested in Johnny Skae’g wheel of ortnne, resulting in depleted exchequers, md in some instances in inextricable em barrassments. In view of these deplorable drcumstances, the dispensation of social lcspitalities of a higher order will devolve lpon the An Fait Club, a fashionable or ganization. The “curled darlings,” how ever, are in hot water, which has created a gainful doubt in fashionable circles as to whether the Club’s reception will be as recherche as upon former occasions. Tlie lub is divided into two factions. One is the railroad faction, and the other the inti-railroaders. The former autocratic ally demand that the dances should be ?iven at the Opera House, the stock of which, it being a joint stock building, is argely held by them, wh le tlie opposition insist upon whirling their fascinating part ners in a cheaper hall. It is shocking to think, even for a moment, that the fashion leaders of this aristocratic capital should quibble about such a matter as expense. Those who are intimately acquainted with the “blue bloods," which I profoundly regret I am not, aro amazed that they should waste a passing thought upon such % plebian subject as cost or outlay. To a disinterested person it is excessively amus ing to note the seriousness with which the contending factions discuss their over whelmingly important differences. The depreciation in stock values dwindles into nothingness as compared w-ith the troubles A the Au Fait Club. mr. bubv/Uib-mi t ( ask, Another affair which lias for gome time not only disturbed tlie social, but also the offi cial circles of the Capital, is the suit brought by Edward McFadden, ex-Deputy Secretary of State, against Secretary of State Babcock. The plaintiff avers that his former principal demanded one-half of his salary each month, as a premium for the privilege of holding his position, w hich demand was promptly complied with dur ing his (McFadden’s) incumbency. A few months since McFadden’s official head rolled into the basket, and Babcock’s son in-law was appointed in his stead. This little circumstance worked McFadden up to a realization of how unjustly he had been dealt with, and he now seeks redress before a tribunal of justice. The merits of tins case will be ventilated and well aired in the Second Judicial District Court next month. Babcock claims that McFad den’s version of the affair is made up out of whole cloth, and that the case can not be dignified by a more honorable appellation than that of “blackmail.” It is generally conceded here that if Mc Fadden’s complaint is founded upon facts he should not have waited to impeach the honor and integrity of his superior until he had a personal grievance to satisfy, but that it was his duty to give publicity to Babcock's malfeasance in office on the mo ment that the dishonorable pioposition was made to him. The respective parties to this suit have hosts of friends, who are absorbingly interested in the result of the matter. In the meantime, it is needless to add that, the Babcock and McFadden fami lies are not upon visiting terras. The op erations «f the Carson MIXT, The only institution in the whole State of Nevada supported by the general Govern ment, the State which has added so much to the real and substantial wealth of this broad land, the State which has so materi ally aided the Hon. John Sherman, Secre tary of the Treasury, in carryiugout his pet'scheme—that of resuming specie pay ments—are again partially suspended, and forty odd attaches temporarily placed on the retired list, without pay. The manage ment of the Mint is In capable and econom ical hands, a statement which can be easily verified by examining the annual reports of the Director of the Mints, yot, in the face of that, there soi-ms to be a disposi tion on the part of the powers that are, to discriminate against that institution. It is a burning shame that a Mint, in the heart of the greatest silver and gold producing section inthisoountry, should be negleoted, while the matter of building a Mint in New York, at a coat of $1,200,000, is being dis cussed iu Congress. I will discuss this subject more at length In my next letter, SHOCKING PEPBAVITV. On the 6th instant the trial of John T. Pritchard, the murderer of Officer 8y monds, at Gold Hill, who had & change of venue to Ormsby county, came to a close, resulting in a verdict of murder in the first degree. The murder, as shown by the evidence, was of a most revolting character, for which the prisoner will surely pay the extreme penalty of the law fixed for such crimes. On the 21st of last July Pritchard had some difficulty with his reputod wife, .. who, however, is only his mistress—which required a settlement by the police. Offi cer Symond6 entered Pritchard's house to quell the disturbance, or make an ar rest if necessary, when he was shot down like a dog, without the remotest provocation. The further details of this cold blooded assassination are doubtless fresh iu the minds of the readers of the Sentinel. The so-called Mrs. Pritchard, a female scarcely twenty-five years of age, and her mother, were the only witnesses available for the defense. On their arrival in this city, both of the women were in such a be astly state of in toxication that the priaoner’s counsel de clined to place them on the witness stand, for fear they would make a bad case Worse. Mother anil daughter were here several days, continually under the intluenee of alcoholic stimulants to such a degree as to completely brutalize their mental faculties. During the trial the fact was proven that Mrs. Pritchard was at the bottom of the trou ble which resulted in the ghastly murder, and to think that that womau-Qod save the mark—would not curb hor infamous aud depraved appetite sufficiently long to speak a mitigating word ^ for the man whom she made a murderer 1 I doubt if this case lias a parallel for hellish aban donment 1 Both of these shockingly de praved women are stilt in Carson, and will probably make capital of the uuenviable notoriety they have attaiued. THE TRAVEL AND RAILROAD TO BODIE. Pneumonia seems to have no terror for those who arc in pursuit of that article to the want of which may be ascribed so much miserv, unhappiness, infidelity and crime, for the rush to Bodie, through Carson, is unabated, though distressing stories about tbe unhealthfulness of the camp are daily related by returning passengers. But. speaking of Bodie. it is now ,stated M an at>lsolute truth, that D. 0. Mills 4 Co. will push a narrow gauge road south early next ipriug. Report hath it also that the railroad will be built from the Mound House, a point half way between Carson and Virginia, to punish the Csraonltes. who, it «a alleged, have ever beeu standing in their own light by array ing themselves against the vtUtj"1* «“l Truekee Railroad Company. Be that as it j may. but my bumble opinion la that D. O, Mills 4 Co. will build their road, if the) do build it at all. from the point moat ad vantageous to their pocket. ; they are not the men to relinquish any great pecuniar) I advantages, merely for the sake of punish jug a few powerless antagonists. THE SCHOOL-BOOK AGITATION Has. fortunately, ended to the satisfaetioi vf the parents who have one or more chil ten attending the publlo tohools of tail State. For several weeks this city was be sieged by a small army of agents, repre senting different publishing houses of the East and elsewhere. They were adepts iu the science of button-holing, a fact whicli will be substantiated by every memlier of the State lioard of Education. These agents were naturally designed for lobbyists, for their powers of impressing one with the superiority of their respective pnblications was greater than Steve Gage's ability to prove, by an indisputable mathematical process, tl’.st the people of Nevada harbor an unjustifiable prejudice against the Cen tral Pacific Railroad Company. Rut the agents were engaged in a fruitless lalarr, as the Board, after mature deliberation, wisely decided to freeze on to the text books now iu uso, which are as good as any, and there by saving the patents of Nevada's school children the outlay of many thousands of dollars. The matter of annually changing tlie public school books admits of a greater protesting discussion than I am prepared to enter into at present. Math. 1X1, DISTRICT. rile I'oiintrj Well Timbered mill Rteh In Uolil anil Mlvrr. The Silver State of the 10th instant has the following: A week ago H. C. Marker rod H. C. Emmons, of Big Meadows, and It. S. Day, Superintendent of the Numa mine, in Trinity District, left Lovelock for the new mining district, known as I X L, in Cbnrchill county. The road as now traveled, from Lovelock to the new mines, is about forty miles, though the distance between the two places is not over twenty live or thirty milts. They found springs un the route capabio of supplying teams witli water, and only eight or ten miles apart. Mr. Marker informs ns that a good road can be built at a small ex pense through a pans in the range between Big Meadows and I X L, that will shorten the route at least ten miles. He savs that the country in the vicinity of the miues is well timbered, and there is flowing streams of water in all the canyons. The mines are extensive, and the district is an invit ing field for prospectors. The ledges are very large, and many of them very rich. Mr. Day, who is an experienced miner, thinks the mines are among the best in the State. They broke some pieces of ore from the croppings of the Black Prince.

Editob Sentinel : Please publish the following: There has been considerable skirmishing about the proposed consolida tion of the Uncle Sam and Albion mines. This event might have taken place mouths since had the company seen fit to do what was right, and pay for the Uncle Sam title, as they agreed to do. But it seems that the Albion Company is more desirous of cinching us out of our property by tech nical points. We are just as anxious to have the consolidation take place, and work begun, as any one. If the company wishes to do what is right and fair, between man and man, we are ready to meet them ; but if they intend to make use of the cinching machine, as indicated by Mr. L. L. Robin son's letter of October 20th, to extort our property from us, all we have to say is what Joe Hooker said to his men in front of Lookout Mountain : ” Turn your guns loose,” E. H. Rose, D. H.

Mr. Polglaze has finally determined to take her to San Francisco for treatment, and as be had expended all the means at bis command assistance was proffered by sev eral of our citizens. The amount given might have been larger, couaidering the object, but we are glad to record that at least a few rooognized the claims of a fel low man. Til* Jackson Min*. Work is being actively pushed In the Jaokaon’s new shaft, and It is now down 315 feet. Last month it was sunk 150 feet, notwithstanding several unavoidable delays occurred. About the holidays the hoisting works will bo removed to the new shaft, which will necessitate a suspension of work in the mine for two or three weeks. Mr. Terry, the superintendent, is a practical, methodical man, and exercises a careful supervision over the work. His morning hours are devoted to a personal inspection of the mine, and the afternoon is passed looking after the progress of the shaft. Literary Exercises.
