Not so Much illiimo to the Boy as
An examination of the boy Lucy for the
shooting of Fidolo Rolanti in Young's
gunsmith shop Was held yesterday before
Judge Harmon. The District Attorney
appeared for the State and Alex. Wilson
for defendant. The evidence educed showed ;
that a slight injustice had been done the I
boy in the first notice of the unfortunate j
occurrence in ascribing to him oxtremo ,
carelessness. It appears that at the time
the pistol was fired the boy was not brand
ishing the weapon in a careless manner,
but carefully examining it to see if loaded,
when, it being a self-cooker, it was un
intentionally discharged by an almost
imperceptible motion of defendant's hand.
From tho position in which the revolver
was held Mr. Green, the main witness for
the prosecution, swore it was impossible
for defendant to see a charge in the gun,
and. as Lucy had previously withdrawn the
cartridge placed in it, he had no reason to
think it loaded in any chamber. Under
the circumstances the District Attorney
did not press for a oonviotion, and the
defendant was discharged.
Prison Labor.
The County Commissioners of Lander,

determined to turn the time of the pris

This is as it should be. It appears to be a
rulo with members of the tramp class
to commit some petty offense as soon as
cold weather sets in, and get sent up for
a month or two. During this period they
are comfortably housed in warm quarters,
and their principal care is to keep the fires
going and toast their toes during their
term. They are served with excellent
nn-als- much better than thev are neons
turned to when at liberty. To suoh per
sons such imprisonment is anything but
punishment. Weareglad to hoar .that tho

nothing surprising in this. The Mormons

McCoy Fitzgerald Thrown With His
Sled Fnder a Horse's Hoofs.
Last evenihg about 7 o’olock a number
of boys were coasting down tbo street
from the school, quite a long stretch to
wards the old barley mill, little McCoy
Fitzgerald among the rest. MoCoy was
going down the hill very rapidly on
his sled, when he came suddenly upon
Henry Kind, who was leading his horses
across the street. On account of the dark
ness, though having a lauteru on his sled,
he could see but a tow yards about him.
He tried to come to a halt when he found
himself about to be hurled under tho
horaeB1 feet, but It was too late. Tho ve
locity acquired by the sled in descending
tho steep bill was so great that ho could
not check his speed or manage his slod.
Ho was precipitateifagainst the feet of one
of the horses. It was supposed at first
that he had been kicked on tho head by
the animal and that his skull was frac
tured. This, fortunately, is not the case.
Ho probably received no greater injury
than a terrible shock from striking his
head upon tho horses’ hoofs. Ho was
picked up and carried homo in an uncon
scious state. At 9 o’olock last night he
lay still unconscious. The skull does not
seem to be injured, there being ouly an
abrasion of the skin on one side of the
head. Tho shock, however, produced a
concussion of the brain, which resulted in
norvous prostration and unconsciousness.
His condition last night was regarded as
very serious, but it is hoped that tho brain
has sustained no permanent injury, and
that the young gentleman will reoover his
health in a few days.
A Promising: Town.
Tho town of Hawthorne, on tho Carson
& Colorado road, is comparatively lively
now. The men engaged in constructing
the wagon road to tho Mount Cory mine
have infused new life into tho village,
which on Sundays presents quite a breezy
aspeot. Hawthorne will very likely be a
thriving place next season. Some good
mines will doubtless be developed in tho
neighborhood—perhaps as promising as
the Mount Cory, which has opened out
finely, and already shows a respectable
To Cur© Corn*.
Corns are said to bo curable as follows:
Take one-fourth of a oup of strong vine
gar, crumb finely into it some bread. Let
it stand half an hour, or until it softens
into a good poultice. Then apply on re
tiring at night. In the morning the sore
ness will be gone, and the corn can be
pioked out. If the corn is a very obstinate
one it may require two or three more ap
plications to efi’eot a cure.

H. 1’. George, editor of tlie Lewis Her
ald, returned home recently from a thor
ough inspection of the mining coun
try in the southern counties of Nevada.
Ho is a very intelligent gentleman, a prac
tical miner and a very closo observer. He
gives in the following article some very
useful hints. A representative of the
Sentinel lately finished a tour of the
State on different business from that which
occupied tho attention of Mr. George, but
he did not travel with his eyes closed. He
saw enough to make him appreciate fully
what Mr. George says, and tho article of
this gentleman is heartily commended to
our patrons for perusal. Mr. George says:
During our trip through the southern
part of Nevada we were surprised at the
number of reduction works that had been
erected iu the different mining camps and
lying idle, monuments of folly and mis
management. If one-fourth the amount
of capital had been expended in explor
ing the mines that has been wasted in
erecting thone expensive works, our State
would to-day be the greatest bullion pro
ducer in the world. Valuable mine? are
lying idle, which, if worked on legitimate
business principles, would be dividend
payors, but useless expenditures and gross
mismanagement have caused stockholders
to refuse to contribute any further funds,
and the mines and mills have become
alinpst uninhabited, whero heretofore all
was life and bustle, and not on account
of tlie merits or demerits of tho mines,
but simply for the incapacity and make all
you can for yourself management. Nevada
has had “wild cat and stock jobbery”
enough. Whilo our neighboring mineral
States are enjoying a season of prosperity,
Nevada is undergoing a season of dullness
unparalieled in her history, and through
no fault of her mines or mineral wealth.
Wo believe that our State is the best min
eralized State or Territory iu tho Union, if
properly worked, and in all our principal
mining camps it has been proven beyond a
doubt that our mineral veins, are continued
to as great a depth as in any other country
in the world. Then why should so mauy
of our mines be lying idle to-day? Let any
person who has been a resident of thoso
camps answer the question. Is it through
the mines giving out, or on account of the
poorness of the ore? Can they truthfully
say yes in cither case ? There may be some
fow’ exceptions, but tho greater number
will have to be laid to the incapacity of
the management and useless expenditures
in salaries to non-producors. How many
mines are there whoso pay-roll for miners
and mill men equal tho amount paid out
to supernumeraries, many of whom have
never soen a mine, aud knpw no more
about mining than a cow doe3 about
handling a musket. Mining can bo made
a paying business, and will pay a larger
rate of interest on tho amount invested
than almost any other business, but mast
bo conducted on tho same business prin
ciples that any other bnsiuess is conducted
on, then, and not. till then, will our State
return to its old time prosperity, and it
should be the endeavor of all interested
in mining and tho welfare of the State of
Nevada, to do all in their power to en
courage legitimate mining and discourage
wildcat schemes and stock jobberies.
I’lie Stale Prison Cutler His Mun
A correspondent of the Reno Gazette
jays: A visit to the State Prison Sunday
afternoon was enjoyable. Major Garrard
ias kept that institution up to its former
jtandard of excellence, and has made a
most efficient Warden. In this connection
it may be well to say that the Republicans
must use excellent judgment in selecting
a candidate as his sw&essor if they expect
to elect him. Warden Garrard will make
a splendid showing. His administration
has been very successful; in fact, nearly
perfect. He has used good judgment in
looking after the many duties of this im
portant office and deserves great credit.
The place is as clean and neat in every
department as soap, water and muscle can
make it. The prisoners are as contented
as men deprived of their liberty could
well be, and look healthy. The shoe shop
has been well conducted, and Foreman
Burlington has manufactured nothing but
flrst-class goods, which Warden Garrard
has disposed of. They only havo about
§4,000 in manufactured stock on hand. At
the present time there ardftmt 213 convicts,
and at the January meeting of the Board
of Pardons that number will most likely
be reduced some. His appropriation was
§100,000. Of this amount about $98,000
has been used. The number of convicts
for the two years will average probably
125 to 126, about 20 less than under Bat
terman's administration. Major Garrard
expect3 his party to stand by his official
record, and if 8 Republican members
think him as good as anybody else and
thiuk it for the interest of tho State to
retain him he will of course accept the
trust for another term.
A Mau Huutx a Fight autl Gets a
IJttle Mure Thau He Wauted.
In the town of Darwin, Inyo County,
California, A. W. Robiuaon was shot and
killed on Christmas Day John Baxter,
The men were neighbors, owning adjoin
ing farms north of the town of Indepen
dence. Some months ago the men had
legal trouble about a water right, when
Baxter obtained a perpetual injunction,
which prevented Robinson taking water
from the stream that supplied the two
farms. On Christmas Baxter went to
Darwin with a wagon load of farm prod
uce. Robinson heard ho was in the placo,
and began hunting him. Robinson was
mounted upon a horse, and had been
drinking. While riding about Robinsou’s
bat blow' off, and he tired sevoral shots at
it from a new self-cocking pistol, with
which ho was armed, putting two bullets
through it. Finally a man, of whom ho
inquired, told Robinson where Baxter’s
wagon was standing. Baxter saw
Robinson coming, and leaviug his
wagon went to ft house thirty yards
away, where ho remained some 15 minutes
waiting for Robinson to leave, he having
taken up his position at the wagon.
Finally, he could delay no longer and went
to his wagon, where Robinson culled him
all manner of names, and wound up by
saying, “Pull and defend yourself. Iam
going to kill you right here!" Baxter,
who wag by this time on the seat of his
wagon, said, “For God Almighty’s sake,
Robinson, don’t shoot!" Robinson spurred
his horse up against the side of tho wagon
and reached for his pistol, whioh hung at
the horn of his saddle. Baxter told Rob
inson not to touoh the pistol, and when be
saw ho had got it called to bring people
out of a house near at hand. No one
came and the tiring then began. Robin
son received two wounds through the
body, which proved fatal almost immedi
ately. The above is oondensed from the
testimony taken at tho Coroner’s inquest.
Both men were old settlors. It was an un
fortunate affair, but the trouble was of
Robinson's seeking. Tho jury found that
Baxter acted in self-defense.

The Oregon Railroad.
In an article on railroad development
on tho Paciilo Coast, the Ban Franoisoo
Chronicle says! A still more extensive
road is that vfhioh the Central Pacific pur
poses running north from Winnennieca,
either to Walla Walla or to Grand City, to
connect with the Oregon Railway and
Navigation Company. An eastern branch
of this road will start from Camp Smith
in Southeastern Oregon, running through
Boise City and reaching the Wood ltiver
mining district in Idaho. Surveying par
ties have been sent out on this road, as
they have also on that which the Central
Pacific iutends to run from Kelton, Utah,
to Bozeman in Montana.
•War Ships Roiui( to Honolulu.
San Francisco, Jan. 5.—Tho United
States ship Alaska has been ordered to
Honolulu, to be there at the time of
Kalan’s coronation. The Lockawanua is
now at Honolulu, and will remain there,
and it is expected that the Wachnsotts will
bo ordered there. The principal naval
powers will send war ships to Honolulu.
The avowed object is to pay proper cour
tesy, but it is understood that the real
object is to protect foreign interests in
case of trouble, which may arise from op
position to the extravagant arrangements
for the coronation. Rumors are circu
lated of a possible revolution, n. W.
Severance, the Hawaiian Consul of this
city, places no faith in such rumors,
which, he says, are the talk of a lot of dis
appointed office-seekers. I. 1). Spreckle,
who has extensive interests on tho islands,
says he fears no trouble.
Increase of Customs.
San Francisco, Jan. 5.—A Victoria, B.
C., dispatch says: In eleven years the port
nf Victoria has paid $5,000,000 in customs
duties. The increase in duties last year is
$120; the dutiable goods imported is
$3,000,000; the free goods is $450,000.
The exports show a s-till more remarkable
increase. The exports for tho year, are
about four and a half million dollars. For
the last quarter the exports reached the
unprecedented sum of $1,339,000. These
figures do not include the lumber ship
ments direct from Frazer River, which
would swell the total exports for tho half
yoar to $1,050,000. These figures show a
great expansion of tho trade of the prov
ince, and of this port in particular.
Unprecedented Flour .Shipments.
San Francisco, Jan. 5.—The Custom
house statistic):* show that during the past
year 1,000,000 barrels of flour were shipped
from San Francisco, of the total value of
$5,000,000. The flour was principally
shipped to Great Britain and Central and
South America. It was the largest annual
shipment of flour ever known in tho his
tory of this city.

The Baldwin Shooting Affair.
San Francisco, Jan. 5.—There are no
now developments in the Lucky Baldwin
shooting affair. Miss Baldwin, the
young woman who did the shooting, is
still in jail, charged with an assault to
kill. The wounded man is resting quite
comfortably to-night, the ball not being ex
tracted from the arm. The wound is likely
to prove very troublesome, but is not con
sidered necessarily dangerous.
Killeil With His Own Weapon.
Walla Walla, Jan. 5.—Thursday even
ing a young man named Painter called at
the residence of Thomas Wood to take
his daughter to a party. The lady refused
to accompany him, when Painter drew his
pistol and tired it in tho air. Her brother
took a shotgun and gave chase, and over
took Painter. In the scuffle that ensued,
the gun went off. The charge went
through Wood’s arm, and ho died from
loss of blood.

A Haro Example.
Isaac N. Stage it, attached to the State
Surveyor General's offloe here, off and on,
for the past ten years, says the Carson
Tribune, left for his homo in Wellsville,
New York, on Monday night, where he will
henceforth reside. Mr. Fasiett has, in
one respect, proven himself an exoeption
to the general run of office-holders. When
ho came here, nearly a dozen years ago, a
mortgage of $20,000 was hanging over his i
property at homo, aud ho began to roduce j
it by unflagging industry aud rigid econ- '
omy. ‘His determination in tho matter
never wavered, and long before his term
of office ended last year his property was
in his possession, and to-day he cannot be
worth less than $50,000.
