THE LYON COUNTY THDIES
TUESDAY. APRIL 6, 1875 The associate editor of the Times does not deem it necessary to encroach upon the needed space of these columns with what he regards as a useless and uninteresting salu tatory, but promising to do his utmost to add to the interest of the paper, and trusting he will be accorded the co-operation of our peo ple, and a lenient criticism by brother quills, he is, Most respectfully, Harky J. Norton. The assignee's sale of the effects of Oelisse Lawson, bankrupt—see adv’t. The’Frisco people don’t say “you lie!” any more. They say “You Lick!” and then “Let's liquor.” The Auditor’s and Treasurer's re port of the financial status of Lyon County will appear in next issue. The big boys indulged their snow balling propensities last evening and filled up each others’ ears with the beautiful. Matilda O’Brien, the intoxicated female mentioned in connection with a broken shin last issue, is now a guest of Storey County. Sheriff Cooke informs us that the license tax collected for the month of March amounted to one thousand twelve dollars and fifty cents. The complaint in a Chicago breach of promise suit reads “obtaining goods under false pretenses.” Queer tribe those Shick* kawgowins. Miss Jennie Smith, Sutro’s success ful school ma’am presides over and directs the young ideas of some thirty scholars. They are all pretty fair marksmen. — The discourse of Rev. W. R. Jen vey, at the school-house on Sunday evening, brought out a good and numerous congrega tion. The sermon is highly spoken of. An altercation at Virginia on Sat urday evening, between James Duffey and Thomas Higgins, caused a harmless discharge of firearms and the arrest of both parties. A portion of the Silver Hill machinery, thirty-seven thousand pounds, ar rived at Gold Hill yesterday. It includes the largest shaft yet brought into this seetion. Mr. C. Becker, he of the Oasis Sa loon, has just finished planting a row of shade trees on the south side of his lot on Main St., and if they all grow it will be indeed an oasis. Our Mongolian citizens? performed on Sunday tliwir customary rite of feeding the dead, and several express wagons were em ployed in hauling provisions to the illustrious defunct. The Risdon Iron Works are three months behind on their machinery contract with the Silver Hill mine, and imprecations not loud but deep are caused by the unwar ranted delay. The westward bound trains of the Central are still loaded with emigrants for Nevada an l California, most of whom are fiudiug homes in the Golden State or labor in the mines. A light, sifting snow, accompanied by severe cold, set in here yesterday morning and continued at intervals throughout the day. No good cause is assigned for such unseasona ble conduct except atoomuebness of altitude. The lecture ol Hon. <J. E. DeLong, at Virginia on Saturday evening, drew a large and appreciative audience and was an occasion of rare entertainment. The efforts of the Vir ginia Glee Club and the Washington Guard Band added not a little to the enjoyment of the evening. Twenty-seven accounts, amount ing to $2,172.25, were presented and allowed before the Board of County Commissioners yesterday. We feel justified in saying that the affairs of Lyon county, under the management of its present officers, are economically and justly conducted._ Mrs. D. P. Bowers and Mr. J. C. McCollom, supported by Piper’s theatrical company, are delighting the Carsonites this week, and at the close of the Lingard engage ment will appear at Virginia. The simple an nouncement foreshadows full houses and a hearty welcome. Mr. II. Winfrey met with a pain ful accident at the Overman shaft on Saturday, by the falling of a pulley over which the cable passes. It struck the right foot of Mr. W. and took the flesh and nails off the great and middle toes, and completely severed the sec ond toe at the right joint. Wo know of no bettor investment in a small way for our homo capitalists, than the erection of a few neut an«l substantial teuemeut houses for rent. It is said there is not a vacant house iu the city, and at the pre sent rates for rent of rooms and houses there is money to be made by adopting our sugges tion. Who will do it ? Complaint is made that some of the Chinese restaurant-servants ou Main St. are iu the habit of emptying hot ashes and live coals iu the alley back of the building. Such a practice endangers the safety of the city, and should be stopped either by the au thorities or by the wholesome use of a club. Silver City property holders cannot afford to indulge such criminal carelessness. A private letter from Montana de picts the effects of the hard winter just ex perienced as something to be long remembered as disastrous to horned stock and felicitous to young married folks. More than the usual number of the former have gone to that bourne from whence no freight ox returns, and the latter have had to go to bed to keep warm. The railroad subsidy question is being agitated by the press and through public meet ings, and with fair chance of reaching a suc cessful result. Patrick Hock, the second man ever convicted in the courts of murder iu tho first degree, is now under sentence. An abun dance of snow promises a successful mining season in the placers, the Capital question is virtually settled iu favor of Helena, every other man in Deer Lodge county is a candidate for sheriff, the spring crop of babies looks flattering, and -isn’t this enough to make any body happy? MIDNIGHT DISPATCHES ! San Francisco, April 5th.—The Police Court hold a special session this afternoon, on application to restore the painting of Elaine to Snow & May. The prisoners wore all placed in the dock as necossary formality. Tho evidence of Mr. Snow was taken as to the identity of the painting. He stated that tiie painting produced was the same one stolen on tho night of the first inst. Tho witness further stated that the painting was liable to sustain injury by being rolled up in its present condition, and tho sooner it was re mounted again the better. Witness placed a nominal value on tho painting of $5,000. The prisoners wero questioned if either of tiiem had any objection to tho restoration of tho painting to Snow & May, but neither was disposed to lay any claim to tho property. The Court ordered that tho application be granted. Tho painting was deliver ed over accordingly. The evidence in the case of Ed ward Maguire, charged with mur dering his wife, was closed this morning. Shortly after one o'clock the Jury retired to deliberate, and after an absence of about two hours, returnod a verdict of murder in tho second degree, with a recommenda tion to tho mercy of the Court. Barometer declined rapidly yes terday afternoon, and still has a downward tendency. A strong wind from the northwest sot in during tho night, and towards morning a fall of rain. The ther mometer ranged between 40 and 42 degrees to day; twice during the forenoon, snow-flakes were ob served on the hills beyond the Mission, which were mantled with snow this morning. A gale on tho bay was quite severe during the day. Vessels in tho stream dragged their anchors, and many at the wharves with difficulty avoided serious injury. Tho steamer Mar shal, on tho Berkeley route, on her socond trip, was compelled to turn back; her timbers were severely strained, and her upper works sus tained some injury. No important damage to shipping reported. A Job for the Doctor.—John Doe and Richard Roo collided last evening at tiie lower end of town. Wo did' not witness tho combat, but from the appearance of the parties at j tho wind-up wo are satisfied that a success was made of it. Doe was covered with blood trom head to feet, and Roe, beside an ugly gash in the head, was packing his under lip around in his hand, waiting for tho arrival of a physician. I lie piece of lip bitten out is about the size of a quarter, and contains the long hair of a once thrifty imperial. We are sorry to have to record such a disgraceful affair in our vity, and withhold names for tho present. Silver City School.—We learn from Professor Cromwell that there are 137 scholars in attendance in this school. There has been fourteen new scholars in tho last two weoks, among them Indian Hob, who lias recently returned from Winnertiuc ca. Several families have canto m from California. The last deposit in the Williams Chatham prizo fight was put up last night at Virginia, so that it is almost morally certain that they will have an opportunity of bruising each other. Tiie stakes are 81,000 a side, and the dato fixed for May 5th. Tiie Linoard season was inaugu rated at Piper’s Opera House last night by a splendid audience, and general satisfaction. Tiie week will be a most attractive one for theatre goers, and a matinee will be given on Saturday afternoon. J. F. Flannioan, working in tho Consolidated Virginia mine, met with a very severe accident yester day morning, by falling against tho side ot one of tho pans. Two ribs wero broken. A grave-decorating pagan, while returning with tho roast pigs yester day, was asked why ho did not leave them to be eaten by the dead. John significantly remarked, “ Heap too mucheo Dilute.” (Piute.) Wires Down.—Owing to tho tele graph wires being down in lower California, wo are short of dispatches to-day. Will Start Up.—We learn that tho Devil’s Oato mill will start up in a few days. The case of J. H. Skewers, indiCt ed for murder, is set tor trial in tho 1st District Court to-day. The Jury in tho caso of the Con solidated Virginia ore robbers tailed to agree yosterdav. Thf. minstrel performance did not ta'.:o place last evening, as ad ver tised. “ Delta ” will have a hearing in next issue. A spelling school is spoken of in Dayton. Stocks a shade lower.
