A LIVELY TIME.
EurekaiiM in Durance Vile on tlie
C’lmrtf© of Horse Stealing1.
Lawrence Doyle of Euroka recently
bought out the stock of horses belonging
to A. G. Montgomery. He wanted to
gather them in, and he set out for that
purpose two weeks ago yesterday, horse
back, accompanied by George Ham and
BUI Burns. They got together some sixty
odd head of horses, and put them in the
corral at Straight’s ranch, Nye County.
When they had worked thus far success
fully they were somewhat startled by be
ing arrested for horse stealing—grand lar
ceny. A man named Dooly, appointed by
the Justioo of the Peaoe of Duokwater,
nabbed them. When they were all thus in
durance vile, two men came about 8 o’clook
at night of the 20th and drove the stook
away, Mrs. Straight told them she had
seen two suspicious fellows about the
corral, and that the horses had dis
appeared. The Eureka party, it seems,
were thereupon released from arrest
by the astute Nye County Justice
seeing he had got his foot in it, and they
saddled up and went in pursuit of the
real thieves, being joined by the deputy
who had arrested them, and anothor man
about the ranch. They went with a war
rant against one Carpenter to the Blue
Eagle ranch, where they found their horses
undor lock and key. Carpenter was stand
ing guard and showed fight. He said the
horses were his property, and they
shouldn’t have them as long as he lived.
He went and brought out a double-bar
reled shotgun. He had buckshot in it,
and much sanguinary matter in his eye.
Tho warrant wus read to him, however,
and ho weakened. The horses in dispute,
and Lawrence Doyle, and George Ham,
and Bill Burns, are all in town again.
Cheap Boarding.
Mrs. Zottraan has removed to her new
quarters, In front of her former eating
house, and directly opposite the Ruby
Dundorberg offioe. The new place is com
modious and handsomely fitted up, having
boon built expressly for the purposes to
which it is put. One of the main features
of this house is the cheapness of the board.
Meals are served at the rate of $5 a week,
or 25 cents & sitting. It is a place where
the workingman can get substantial food,
well cooked, and hy white hands. No Chi
nese employed. Mrs. Zottman deserves
generous support in her laudable efforts
to sustain a good-sized family of ohildren,
brought, as she is, in direct competition
with two restaurants run by Mongolians.
Ruby Hill Justice Court.
The Justioe Court of Ruby Hill was
orowded nearly all day yesterday. The
cause of the extraordinary interest dis
played was the trial of James Buoket, John
i’asooe and James Pentecost, the first for
firing off a pistol in the stroet, and the two
lattor for assault and battery. The trouble
was on aocount of a row at Ruby Hill on
Saturday, Buoket and Pasooe being the
chief parties to it. Buoket was found
guilty and fined $100; Pasooe was aoquitted
by the Jury, and the case of Pentecost, on
motion of the District Attorney, was dis
missed.
Hymeulal.
Miss Oarlotta Monaco was last evening
married to Mr. Cabriele Conti, by Father
Monteverdo, at the Catholio Church. The
bride is the amiable aud lovely
sister of our townsman, L. Mo
naco. The groom is also well and favor
ably known here. May they ever
bo so happy and satisfied with each other
in this land of ours that they shall never
know the differonoe betwoen it and Italy.

The Status ef the Case In tlie Su
preme Court.
[SPECIAL TO THE SENTIHEL-]
Oabson (Nev.), April 24.—The Albioa
Richmond case moves slowly. The Rich
mond witnesses are still testifying. They
make out tho ore in the disputed ground to
be comparatively worthless. N. Wesooatt
has sworn that the gross amount of all the
oro in dispute does not reaoh 1,300 tons,
the gross value of which is less than
$52,000, and the net value less than
$25,000. This testimony was heard with
surprise. The comment was mado gener
ally upon it: “What can the Richmond
Company be fighting so hard for ?” It was
a great surprise hero, as tho public havo
understood that the ore body in dispute is
extensive and very valuable. The Rich
mond side may close their case to-day.
The Albion will bring in their witnesses
to-morrow. The taking of testimony will
not be finished before Thursday after
noon, if thon. The argument will require
three days. There is no prospect of a
decision before the middle of next week.
It may bo deferred muoh longer if tho
Judges reserve their judgment. Tho case
is watched with unusual interest. Tho
oxpoctation is that the other witnesses for
the Riohmond will testify to correspond
with Wescoatt’s testimony. It is known
that there will bo a very great discrepancy
between their testimony and what the Al
bion witnesses will swear to. The impres
sion is general that the ore ground in dis
pute is of great value. It will bo hard
for the Judges to tell whether the inevita
ble difference in testimony is owing to
variance in judgment or to the bias of in
terest. It is predicted already, however,
that the bond will be set at a very high
figure. All indications point to this issue.
A number of persons holding Albion
stock or watching it for otbors are hero
and are anxiously awaiting developments.
Fnst Time.
Mr. R. Riokard, Superintendent of the
Victorine property at Kingston, who passod
us by recently to' go and investigate the
tangled condition of things there, and Mr.
W. H. Sweeney, camo into Eureka yes
terday from Austin, by private convey
ance. They drove two horses to a single
buggy to the Willows, 35 miles from Eu
reka, where they changed, taking two of
Sweeney’s stock, whioh brought them into
town. Tue wholo distance is estimated at
from 80 to 85 miles. They mado it in
precisely seven hours and ten minutes.

OF THE EAST AUG ON ACT.
Another of Frank Pixley'a Power
ful Eeatlcr* — The ~ Kopitbllcan
Party Having; Deserted Its Prin
ciples is No Eoiifter the Friend of
the People.
The weekly articles by Frank Pixley in
the San Francisco Argonaut on the Chi
nese question are without a parallel in the
journalism of the present age. The pow
erful English in which thoy are written
recall the eloquent letters of Junius and
thr stirring pamphlets of Tom Paine just
before and during the dark times of the
Revolutionary War. Every word in our
quotation this morning is a living power,
and every sentence a complete thought.
Pixley is a radical Republican. TVo com
mend what he says, not only to Republi
cans, but to Democrats, because of the
thrilling style in which he presents plain
truths :
THEY STILL COilE.
This is our condition to-day, and last
month there came to us -1,080. This
month will increase that number. At
Hongkong aro 17 ships loading for this
coast. Fifty thousand arc hooked for im
migration. They do not go East. They
stay here. Are we to be taunted with the 1
fact that in a country of 50,000,000 inhabi
tants thero are less than half a million
Chinese ? Are we to he denounced with
cowardice becauso wo fear this invasion,
when it is known that all the States
and Territories now afflicted with the pres
ence of Chinese contain something
like 1,500,000 of people? The Chinese
will not seek competition with the large
population east of the Rocky Mountains so
long as they can find room upon this side ;
and before they become an inconvenience
to New England and the East, they will
have destroyed us and driven us from the
coast. Are wo to ho taunted with employ
ing Chinese because a few families use
them as domestic servants, when it is a
recognized fact that they are employed by
corporations and manufactories, driven to
the necessity of employing them after thoy
have driven white labor from the country,
and prevented white immigration from
coming to it; when they are being im
ported to our shores by English and Chi
nese ships, and an American steamship
line owned in New York? All this has
been intelligently presented to tho Ameri
can people, and to repeat tho argument is
useless. Now wo look our condition in
the face, and ask ourselves, “What shall
wo do about it ?”
UNPARALLELED REPUBLICAN TREACHERY.
Republican Senators, by a series of
treacherous acts unparalleled for their
baseness, havo so far refused to extend to
us aDy relief. Tho Republican Presidents
havo interposed the executive voto between
the deliberate legislation of Congress and
the people of this coast. Both political
parties in national convention have re
solved that Chinese immigration should
be arrested. Party resolutions and Con
gressional legislation have demonstrated
who our enemies are. We know from what
source tho opposition comes. All tho Sen
ators, save one, from six Now England
States aro against ns. Tho merchants and
moneyed men of Now York aro against us.
The Eastern clergy aro for the most part
against us. Every railroad millionaire in
the East is against us. Evory Republican
in tho Senate of tlio United States who
represents corporate wealth is in opposi
tion to us. Under this continuing opposi
tion, and in the absence of restrictive
legislation, tho city of San Francisco is
going to the dogs. Property values de
cline, and business interests aro being
destroyed. Governor Stanford told the
writer of this article five years ago, that
in ton years from that day he would see a
network of railways centering at San
Francisco, and bringing hero tho wealth
and business of tho East; that wo should
see steam lines pouring out upon our
shores a great and profitable commerce,
and that in that time San Francisco would
have one million of inhabitants. Half tho
time has passed. The railroads have boon
built, tho steam linos aro established, and
San Francisco has fewer white inhabitants
than on tho day of tho propheoy. Tho
steam lines bring their Asiatic slaves; all
kinds of business languish; the death
rattle is in our throat,
VIOLATION OF LAW FOB BREAD.
In the south of England, across tho
Channel from Belgium, thero was, some
ten years ago, a colliery worked by some
1,500 coal miners. These miners struck
for higher wages. Their demand not being
conceded by the proprietors, they left their
work, went to their village of cabins at
the pit’s mouth, and smoked their pipes
for increased pay. The proprietors sent to
Belgium, and filled their places with cheap
labor. Tho Belgian miners arrived,where
upon the English colliers pitched into
them, killing four, wounding forty, and
driving them away. Tho next morning
tho London Times, in an ablo editorial,
applauded tho act, justified the English
minors in their breach of the law, and said
that tho English workingman was Justified
in the defense of his rights, his family
and his homo, in driving these invading
hirelings fiom tho English shore. In
England thero is an unwritten law of hu
man rights, and it is that tho laborer
shall not bo invaded in his field of labor
so long as he is willing to work, and that
he is entitled to such wages as will enable
him to support those whom God has made
dependent on him for bread. Let Presi
dent Arthur, Republican Senators, the
Legislature of Connecticut, tho tea mer
chants and bankers of New York City, the
millionaire railroad builders, the 1,500
aristocratic membors of tho Union League
Club of Now York City, tho Presbyterian
Svnod of Illinois, tho sniveling sentiment
alists of New England, and the Chinese
Embassador, consider how far they are
justified in imposing Chinese barbarians
upon an unwilling people in defiance of a
national treaty, the expressed will of Con
gress, and a united local protestation.
THE PARTY OF GREAT MORAL IDEAS.
The peace which brought great prosperi
ty brought great wealth to individuals,
nearly all of whom gravitated to the Re
publican party as a party of respectability
and Intelligence. Twenty years of power
begat abuses. Men in office about the
Treasury grew woalthy. Members of the
Senate and House of Representatives be
camo rich. Lawyers in public life accepted
the retainers of great corporations. There
grew up a lobby at Washington moro pow
ful upon business legislation than oitlier
political party. And it is beooming appar
ent—at loast we foar it is—that the Repub
lican party has ceased to bo tho friend of
labor and the working class, and has be
come, or is becoming, the party of wealth,
of corporations and of aristocraoy; that our
President is more tho representative of the
millionaires than of the people. Somohow
we have a suspicion that a majority of the
Republican political leaders in Congress
draw more money from the pay-roll of
corporations than from tho Government
Treasury on account of salaries.
REPmLICg^ NEWSPAPERS.
Every Republican paper in New England
supports the veto, and every one wliioh wo
have seen is unqualifiedly opposed to tho
reatrlotion of Chiuese immigration, while
there is a widespread opinion among
prominent Republicans in favor of giving
tho Chinese tho right of elootivo franchise,
There is no Republican paper east of Chi
cago that is'not outspoken in favor of the
President’s veto, and that does not in tho
most guarded and qualified manner step
tiptoe over the whole Chinese question.
THE LABOR VOTE.
When the next Presidential election
comes around, the old question will be
rovived, aud the old discussion renewed,
as to which of the great national parties
is tho friend of labor. The labor vote de
termines the supremacy of the party. It
is the great middle and working olau to
which each party appeals for support.
The Republican party obtained its su
premacy through a successful appeal to
tho workingmen’s element, and has now
for more than twenty years maintained. _

has been regarded as faithful to its prin

Lordsburo, April 21.—A dispatch says
there was a running tight yesterday after
noon at HorseshoS Canyon, between the
Indians and Indian scouts and troops.
Tho latter were victorious. Four Indian
scouts and three soldiers wero killed and
four wounded. Small bands of liostiles
were seen going south, over San Simon
Flat. A band of twenty or thirty crossed
tho Southern Pacific track near hero early
this morning, going north towards Burro

Pin hard, and Pinkard’s herdsman, name
unknown. The Indians number over 300
bucks, squaws and children, as shown by
actual count while they wero passing
York’s ranch. Tho Indians are completely
surrounded and corraled in Doubtful
Canyon. Those seen on San Simon Flat
last evening wero evidently stragglers.
All the male citizens of Leitondorf, Shaks

AFTER AS ITEM.
A riioiisaiid I'liiiiiiiiieu Suuk in III©
I)«i‘P Via© Son.
Last night the report was brought to
the Sentinel office that about 1,000 Chi
namen, reshipped from San Francisco to
Fortland, while on tho way to tho latter
port, were all drowned a few hours out
from the Golden Gate, the ship on which
they sailed having foundered and gone to
the bottom. It was said that this report
came in a dispatch to a Chinese merchant.
An immediate thirst—a craving for infor
mation—was folt by our quid nunc, not
unmixed with a feeling of bitter resent
ment against the telograpbio nows gatherer
who sonda us (or rather who very often
does not send us) tho news from San Fran
cisco. A thousand Chinamen drowned.
What an item 1 And no telegram from
our man Webster. The inwardness of all
this must bo revealed, and away wont our
man to see about it. He went at once to a
store in Chinatown—“Drugs and Grocer
ies, Ivot Shup.M He there brought to
light a rather singular stato of
facts. no learned that no private
dispatch, in fact, no dispatch at all had
boon received. The story of tho ship
wreck had got badly muddled. Kct Shnp
produced a Chinese newspaper published
in San Francisco last Saturday tho 22d,
and read therefrom that a dispatoh was
receivod in San Francisco last Wednesday
from Hong Kong, bv the Six Companies.
The dispatch stated that a steamer, loaded
with about 1,000 Chinamen, had left China
early in April; that when within a day’s
sail of tho Japanese coast the steamer had
sunk, and that nearly all on board had
been drowned, only a few escaping in
small boats. These survivors reached
land, and on their roport the telegram was
based. The singular part of tho affair is
that the San Franoisco papers have had no
account of, no reference to this alleged
catastropho that has fallen under our op
tics. Still, that it occurred, seems relia
bly stated. We make this statement on
tho presumption that the San Francisco
Chinese newspaper is not given, as somo
of its contemporaries of tho metropolis
are, to romancing with facts. It’s only an
item, anyway, if the China paper doesn’t
lio, for who cares for 1,000 Chinamen,
moro or less ?
A lllch Old Runaway.
Mr. 0. C. Moore started out in a buggy
for Ruby Hill yesterday afternoon, driving
Sweeney’s black maro. The harness got
out of order before he had fairly started,
and ho gat out to arrango it. Tho marc,
becoming frightened, took this opportunity
to go it alone for awhile. Sho put in hor
best licks for a record against time, paying
a visit to the graveyard in her lively ca
reer; returning by Matt Kyle’s house on
Nob Hill, she jumped 14 foot down from a
oliff, at tho bottom of which sho bade good
by to moat of the buggy, which she left
hobind scattered in splintors, For tho
rest of the raco—until her wind gavo out —
sho traveled about tho oouutry until cap
tured, docorated with some shreds of har
ness and a pair of shafts. This is tho
fourth buggv that has boen smashed on
bohalf of Schoolmaster Kayo (and major
domo for neighbor Sweeney) by horses
that have started for tho Richmond Side of
Ruby Hill to bring him home from his
labors with the hickory and arithmetic.
He is going to walk down heroaftor, as
each break-up has cost him from $45 to
$100.
