He is now addressing a vast and enthusiastic audience at the Court-honso. Tho Demo crats are jubilant, and Cassidy is throwing hot shot into the Republican camp, with tolling effect. Oar Nchool*. D. R. Sessions, State Superintendent of Public Instruction, who spent yesterday in the public schools of Eureka, tells the Sentinel that ho finds them in first-rate order. The arrangement and equipment of the rooms, he thinks, could hardly be improved. The Principal’s room, he thinks, is the finest single school-room in Nevada, while the other rooms also com pare well with the school-rooms in the best buildings in Virginia City and Gold Hill. Mr. Sessions speaks in terms of the high est praise of the management of tbeschool and of tho advancement of the pnpils. Ho finds the Principal, Prof. Scanland, as well as all the lady assistants, earnest and energetio in their work. Our schools, the Superintendent says, do not suffer by com parison with any others in Nevada. Mr. Sessions was called away in the midst of bis school visit, and left Eureka this morn ing; but he will return shortly and devote an entire day to the examination of each of the departments, when he promises to speak more in detail about the matter. The Nodal Party. A merry party gathered at the Ottawa Hotel last evening to trip the happy hours away to the excellent music of Frank Reig elhutli's string band. About 12 o'clock re freshments were served, and they were in keeping with the first-class reputation of the house, which is due to the fact that Mr. and Mrs. James Allen fully under stand the modus operandi of building up such a hotel. Owing to an overcrowded paper this morning, we can only mention a few of those we saw there. Brother S. Smith and daughter, Miss Ella, were over 'rom Pinto; the hostess, Mrs. James Allen, was very busy entertaining guests, but aided our re porter in adding the names of a few of those ladies present on this occasion, sb follows : Mistresses Judge Cromer, Coil, Tarlease, Windell, Stewart, Faulkner, Main, Norton, Rooney, McBride, McCor mick, John Allen, together with Miss Con way, Miss Oeraty. Miss Ryan, Mias Jones, Miss Farrell, and fully as many more whose names our reporter did not catch. The festive candidates were out in force of course, and they lost nothing by being at the Ottawa laat night, even though de feated at the polls, for a more pleasant party has not been given in Eureka. The Herchnitta* Exchange. We are glad to read, under our new ad vertisement heading this morning, that A.

He always keeps an attractive plaoe, and makes it lively for the boys; pleasant for gentlemen who wish to sip a glass of beer or wine, and quiet for those parties desiring to teat their executive ability at whist or cribbage. No roughs or loafers infest Mr. Harris' rooms. He keeps a good stock of liquors, cigars and tobacco, and all are treated alike to the same, One feature of the house is the magnificent lunches which Abe always set, and they will be continued. I'pMl. A committee of Republicans procured a barouche in which to escort Messrs.

AMEMOR’8 REPORT. A fall and Comprehenalve Report of the Resource* and Wealth or Eureka County and Its Probable Future. To THE SrBVEYOB GENERAL OF THE STATE of Nevada—Sir: Pursuant to an Act of the Legislature, entitled, "An Act for ob taining correct statements of the financial condition of the several counties of this State,” I herewith submit my report for the year A. D. 1880, a compilation of sta tistics and general review taken from my own and deputies’ field notes. Eureka county derives it revenues from the mines, the tax on real estate and per sonal property and the license tax. Not withstanding serious calamities from fires and floods that have overtaken the chief town, the financial condition of the county is excellent, and no important diminution of revenue is anticipated. The number of acres of land assessed, under the classification of timber, grazing and agricultural, amount to 57,735, afalling off from report of last year. This is dne to the abandonment of tracts from which the timber has been denuded and removed, they being useless for any other purpose. Four thousand nine hundred and forty seven acres of land are devoted to agricul tural purposes, the chief products being hay, potatoes, barley, etc. These lands are valuable, the owners finding steady re muneration for their labor in unfailing crops, the yield having a ready sale in homo markets. The demand for wood and charcoal con tinues unabated. There is a constant utili zation of timber lands, the growth con sisting entirely of dwarf pine, cedar and mahogany, unfit for any purpose except firewood aDd charcoal. Our supply of building lumber and mining timbers is drawn from the western end of the State and California, the nearest available point of Bupply. A retrograde movement in the stock cat tle interest is noticeable during the past year. This is due to two causes. The owners of largo droves of cattle during the fall of 1879 sold and removed a portion of their herds to Wyoming Territory. Of those remaining at least one-fourth per ished during the cold and protracted sea son characterizing the winter and spring months. Despite these causes the renewal of feed, and a promise of a more open sea son, will probably place the cattle interest upon its old footing shortly. In reply to your inquiry regarding trans planted fish, I would state that H. C. Fenstermaker, of Fish creek, has during the past year imported 20,500 trout, 51 cat fish and 37 carp, which have been placed in Fish creek and artificial ponds near his ranch. The fish are at the present time in a thriving condition, and the experiment will doubtless prove a success. Of railroads we have within our county limits 35*4 miles of the Central Pacific railroad, which has been valued, for taxa tion purposes, at $408,324. The Eureka & Palisade Railroad Com pany own and control 90 miles of narrow guage railroad, extending from the town of Palisade to the town of Eureka. Its importance as a line of communication is very great, rendering all portions of the county accessible by rail. Tho road has been valued, for taxation purposes, at $590,445. The same corporation own and operate tho Ruby Hill railroad, running from the principal mines to the smelting furnaces, and used for the carriage of ore and timber. The length of the road is five miles. Our main dependence, and that upon which we rely for permanence and pros perity, lies in our vast mineral resources. That there has been gratifying progress in this industry is patent to the most super ficial observer. Old mines have continued their yield and increased their resources, extensive ore deposits have been uncovered and many new locations made. While there has been a slight decrease in the number of tonB of ore smelted, due to local causes easily understood, the pro ducing mines have increased in number and value, and the average of mineral ter ritory, of known capacity for future de velopment, is largely increased. This fact is possibly more gratifying, for the reason that its extension is due more to home labor rather than to any influx of foreign capital. Onr miners and mine owners are, as a class, thrifty, industrious and pros perous, and have pursued their industry with a faith and intelligence that has met with a deserved reward. In this prosper ity the business community have shared in a ceitain degree, and were It not for the untoward and calamitous disasters that have overtaken the town of Eureka during the past two years, they would have been equally thriving. The great fire of April, 1879, swept over a large area, containing within its limits most of the business por tion of the town. Neither daunted or dis mayed by the catastrophe, the property owners rebuilt at once, a better class of structures taking the place of those oblit erated. Hardly had the work boen com pleted, and the scars of the unsightly ruins removed, when a second fire took place, the destruction of property being equally as great as the former. Although but a month has elapsed since the latter event, rebuilding is going on with rapidity, and as a rule brick is taking the place of wood, a fact that insures an immunity from like happenings in the future. Both were se vere blows, and were it not for the knowl edge that onr mines were permanent and inexhaustible, the property owners must have become discouraged and yielded to fate. Among tho mining districts, the prin cipal in importance and yield is that of Eureka, and within its boundaries tha shire town is Bituated. The mine# are embraced within a radius of seven miles, included in which may be named : Ruby Hill, Prospect Mountain, Adams Hill and Secret Canyon, these being the best known producing points. Ruby Hill takes first rank, both by its greatest yield and devel opments. Over $40,000,000 have been taken out of this section. The Richmond Mining Company, of Ne vada, an English corporation, Edward Pro bert Manager and R. Rickard Superin tendent, is a consolidation of claims worked without cessation for the past ten years, the yield up to tho present date aggregat ing about $16,000,000. The amount of ore reserves now in Bight and ready for ex traction is something fabulous, and the es timates, both of the number of tons and its grade, stamp the mine as one of the foremost in the world. In connection with the mine the oompany own reduction and refinery works, where both processes are carried on uDon an immense scale, thus incidentally affording employment for hun dreds of miners and laborers. The Eureka Consolidated mines, Mr. H. Donnelly Superintendent, adjoins the Richmond on the east, and is a part of the same lode. It is a steady dividend paying propertv, and its total yield ha# reached about $18,000,000. Within the past year the oompany have absorbed, by purchase, the K K Consolidated mine, and have thus added a most valuable territory. During the past year the company inaugurated an enterprise of great Importance, and one pregnant with the question of our fu ture status—that is the construction of a shaft that will, when completed, equal any similar mining work in the world. It is the intention to carry it down to a depth of 8,000 feet, and equip it with machinery of the latest improved and most powerful pattern ; thus enabling them to not only cope with the water flow, but to explore the vein to a great depth. The work is being pushed with great vigor and energy. The company own and operate five smelt ing furnaces. At the Jackson mine, still farther to tho east and on the same lode as the Eureka Consolidated mine, under the management of Superintendent George T. Terry, a vast amount of work has ueen done, embrac ing the sinking of a fine working shaft to a depth of 700 feet, the running of new lav#ls, and the extraction of a large amount of ore. It* prospect* are very bright, and it is justly regarded as on* of the finest properties in Eastern Nevada. The Jefferson and Shoo Fly series, owned by Thomas J. Taylor, are next to the Jackson, and are meritorious and promis ing locations. To the west of the Richmond are the Al bion Consolidated mines, Ed. N. Robinson Superintendent and Joseph Potts Fore man. The company have fine hoisting works and machinery, a working shaft well tim bered and constructed, and have since the location of the claims pushed the work of development with energy and persever ance. The faith of the company has been rewarded by the discovery and opening out of large ore deposits in various portions of the mine, and the outlook for a valuable and paying property is excellent. The demonstrated fact that the Ruby Hill lode extends to the westward is one of the most cheering evidences of the permanence and extent of our mineral wealth, and the addition of another large company like the Albion is an element in our progress not to be disregarded. Another important group of mines, al though not developed to the tame extent as those of Ruby Hill, are to be found up on Prospect Mountain, distant about four miles from the town of Eureka. Unaided by capital, and without anything except the indomitable perseverance and sturdy will and labor, the mine-owners of this section have, since 1870, contributed an aggregate of $10,000,000 to the country’s wealth. With their scant means deep working hat been impossible, but several enterprises are under way that will solve the problem of richness at depth. Of these, the Eureka Mining and Tunnel Company, General P. E. Conner Manager and E. J. Butler Superintendent, is one of the most prominent. It jis driven from the eastern side of Prospect Mountain, and has already reached a length of 1,350 feet, with the most encouraging indica tions. Ore has been found at a depth that proves that the mines penetrate downwards, and the enterprise will doubt less prove not only a grand success to the stockholders, but also inspire with cour age the surface locators. The formations through which the tunnel passes also fur nishes a fine Btudy for the geologist and all who are interested in the past and fu ture history of the mineral-bearing range. The Prospect Mountain tunnel is to the west side of Prospect Mountain what the above is to the eastern side. It is essen tially a home enterprise, the stock being held by citizens of Eureka. It penetrates the western slope of the mountain, start ing near the base, and will run under a group of the richest mines in that locality. A length of 1,250 feet has already been at tained, and the work continues night and day. The Charter, Maryland and other tun nels are being run with the same intent and purpose, and in each the projectors are sanguine of ultimate success. Among tHe mines the Silver Conner is one of the best. It is owned by Johnson, Stowell A Co., and valued as one of the richest in the district. It yields steadily a very high grade of ore, and large reserves are blocked out in sight. The Williams mine, McNaughton A Tay lor owners, is also a splendid property. Its yield has been constant, and recent dis coveries in the lower leveU places it In the front rank. The Dead Broke mine, in the immediate vicinity, is another fine mine, and its own er, Martin Piantoni, has recently uncov ered a large deposit. The Dug Out mine, owned by Mike Ly ons A Co., bids fair to develop into a first class property. The mine has been self sustaining for the past two years. Upon the east side of the mountain the Ruby-Dunderberg mine, an English cor poration, R. Rickard Superintendent and John Eermeen Foreman, is one of the best properties in the State. Within the past eight months developments have been made in the property, ore bodies having been uncovered of large extent and exceed ing richness. The amount in sight justi fies the starting up of the company’s fur naces and their continuous operation. The Connelly mine, John Potter Super intendent, is noted for its regularity of shipments of good oro to the furnaces and its unfailing resources. It is being ably and vigorously worked. The same may be said of the Pinte and Industry mines, Morris Hartnett Superin tendent. Both of these have yielded well in the past, and have -an excellent future. The Eagle series comprise some good lo cations on the mountain, and Superintend ent R. P. McDaniels has In all of his ex plorations proven the value of the ground. The Banner is another productive mine, with a good history and bright'promise. The Alexander mine, recently purchased by an Eastern oompany, is giving a good output of ore, and the investment will without doubt prove a profitable one. The Sterling mine, Adam Hall Manager, has been worked with system and profit. It is looking well, both in ore reserves and promise of permanence. Of the Adams’ Hill group, the Will iamsburg mine, owned by B. Rickard, is one of the best mines in that vicinity. A magnificent deposit of galena ore has been opened during the summer, and the ship ment of ore to the reduction works is con stant. The Silver Lick, Captain James Adams Manager, may be classed in the same cate gory as the above. Rich ore in mass char acterizes the mine, and good returns its working. The Macon City and Lone Pine mines, worked by Molino, Jenkins & Frazer, have been and now are steadily worked, and have proved themselves to be self-sustaining. In other localities, we have the Grant mine, on McCoy Hill, owned by Major W. W. McCoy, and worked by lessees with good results. The Mountain Boy mine, H. 0. Kirkpat rick Manager, is another steady paying property, yielding rioh ore in quantity. The Geddes A Bertrsjjd is one of onr oldest and best properties. It is situated to the west of 8ecret Canyon. The record shows the mine to have been a large pro ducer in the past, and the appearance of the mine at present warrants me in stating that the future yield will more than equal the past. Messrs. Arrington and Bartlett are the owners. The Hoosac mine is another of the early day properties. It has attracted a great deal of notice in the past on aooonnt of its regular yield, and the future of this prop erty is enoouraging. Wm. Wermnth is the manager. In this brief glance at Euraka Mining District, the limits of this report forbid more tbso a casual resume. Bat few of the prominent mines have been mentioned. The list of productive mines and their mer its would extend this report indefinitely. Suffice it to say that each year marks a steady improvement, and no one ac quainted with the field doubts its contin ued prosperity. That we are yet in the in fancy of mining is beyond question, and in this regard a feeling of confidence pervades all Interested. There are other rioh dis tricts embraced within our county bound aries. At Mineral Hill the Austin Com pany is operating extensively, prospecting and taking out rich ore, and a revival of the old-time prosperity is looked for. We have a good official record of the Garriaon mine, Cortez District. Simeon Wenban owner. The bullion output from this property has continued steadily during the year, and profitable develop ment is the rule. It will be deduoed from our reference to the mining industry in Eureka countv, that steady progress Is evi dent. While there may be slight fluotua tions from local oauses, there has been none of that backward movement that would denote depression and decay. From every quarter oomee tiding* of new discov eries. of old mine* continuing their wealths new deposits being opened, and the fact re mains that we have been exceptionally fa vored by nature in this one respect.

The young ladies, who have the whole matter in charge, don’t propose to let the gentle men who are favored with invitations put op a cent, or act in the least as though they were the lords of creation. “Oents in the seats, and ladies on their feet,” will be the order of exercises throughout. Those issuing the invitations must have been considerably “flustrated” at the time of mailing, as among those who received packages of letters in the joint Sentinel and Leader composing room was one very estimable and modest young man. His envelope was directed in the same fa miliar handwriting of the majority of invitations, but he smothered it next his heart, and scooted off to a quiet corner, there to alone peruse it for—possibly—a more tender trace of the pen than a mere formal invitation. He tore it open and read as follows: ‘‘Mem.—1 spool black cotton. No. 60; J4 yd. crinoline at Frank lin’s; 3 yds. cambric muslin; paper hair pins; 1 yd. wido elastic.” Evidently this was a mistake, but the young man is going to present the same, and will get in on it if he can. , Save a doctor’s bill, and go buy a good warm overcoat at the San Francisco Cloth ing Store. * F.
