VOL. 3. SILVER CITY, NEVADA, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 1875. NO. 62 . in—.... i , tith-tt——wnm'JUMJMimun—a— A SUCCESSFUL RAILWAY. In an article on the railroads of the Great West In an Omaha (Neb.) daily paper, we find the article we copy below. Coming aa it does from a paper published at Omaha, where, its it is well known, not the most friendly feelings are exhibited to wards any enterprise not controlled by Omaha, its testimony is most Valuable. We quote as follows: A rOFUI.AH ROAD. “ In these days of ease and luxury it is quite important that the traveler •should know, when going Hcross a country where there are so many competing lines as between Omaha a.id Chicago, on which road safety and comfort is most considered. Such a road is the Chicago and Northwestern. The present controll ing stock owners of this road are active, energetic and successful rail road men, who will never rest easy while any competing line can eclipse them in any respect. They are lay ing down steel rails, and putting on day and night coaches, and sleepers that outshine anything in the West, and their road bed is the oldest, best located and safest of any road out of Oinahu. The country through which this road passes is uiisurlutssi'd for Ireautiful scenery. First wind ng under the bluffs of the Missouri, then up the beautiful valley of the Hover river through Od I ltapids, Hi • in st •delightful city in J v. i. \ r -s the ‘Clear waters of tec Mississippi at (Minton, them-. n\ 1 the highly cuiti ■viiti u .prairies of Illinois to Cm.ago. The conductors and employes oil these trains are noli-I lor tli ir iiil ity, and are gentium n with whom it is a pleasure to do business, who, by their courteous manners and /dimm ing affability, ere fast making the Cliie ig i and X■ rlhw -tern tie1 most popular line lictWeeui Ouiabn and Chicago.” The tr..ins that run ovi r this line are mule of elegant new Pullman Palace drawing-room and sleeping coaches, Imilt expressly for this line, luxurious, well lighted and well ven tilated day coaches, and pleasant lounging and smoking cars; ail built by this company in their own shops. The cars are ail equipped with the celebrated Miller safety platform, and patent buffers and couplings, Westiugliousc safety air brakes, and every other appliance that lias liceu devised for the safety of passenger trains. All trains ure run by tele grapli. In a word, this great California line lias the best and smoothest truck, and the most elegant and comfort able equipment of any road in the West, and lias no competitor in the country. It is eminently the favorite route with Chicagoans travelingE ist, and is acknowledged by the traveling public to lie the popular line from all (Hiints in Western Iowa, Nebraska, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, Montana, Idaho, Nevada, California, and the Pacific Slope. THE MAhiABA MINE. Stockholders of the Niagara Gold and Silver Mining Company held a meeting Friday evouiug at Selleek’s gallery, 415 Montgomery street. About 35,000 shares were repre sented and those present guaranteed 3,000 more at the next meeting. The meeting was called to order by S. J. Corbett, who read the report -of the Investigating Committee, ■consisting of S. J. Corbett, Silas Selleok and Colonel Perkins. The report was elaborate and exhaustive -and canvassed every item. The trial balunce of the Company, us per the Secretary, is us follows : ] Or- Or. | £»“*■ with Treasurer.*17,4.-13 76 Kipenats. 5,31)3 :lt *»“>r. 13.953 75 Supplies. 0.SUJ7 37 f.*1"!1"*.

H7 The suiplus money is in the bunds of the President. The report was adopted. Mr. Corbett read a letter from A Caldwell, former -Superintendent of the mine, dated Silver City, Nov. 14th. Mr. Culd well states there is no work being done at the mine, nor it there any ■one to see to the property, and it is going to ike dogs. The mine is idle and the stock worthless, when it ahould bring ten dollars per share. Another letter was read from Mr. Caldwell, stating that the purchase vf the lone Mill property was made for the Niagara and Monumental mines; that Mr. Pritchard, Presi dent of the Companies, requested him to take the surveys of the ground and buy the same for the 1 mines, the deed to be Aade in Pritchard’s name, who was to deed the property over to the companies. Mr. Caldwell further states that the County Surveyor made an official survey of the property, and was paid by the Companies. In referring to the letter, Mr. Corbett said that Mr. Pritchard claims title to the property, while the stockholders be lieve it belongs to them. The meet ing adjourned until next Friday evening, and in the meantime an effort will be made to secure the requisite number of shares to change the management. — Stock report. ABOUT TURTLES. The Watkins (N. Y.) “Express” prints the following as an “origi nal” composition, the production of a pupil in one of the primary de partments of the Watkius Union School : TCItTLES. A inrue is a repine. n nas a bead like u snake an a little sharp tail and four claws like an alligator. The rest of him lives inside the hones so I don't know what lie looks like. The hones are outside and are called the shell. They live a great many years. They are very ugly and stupid and I don’t think you could tame them if you tried all summer. I suppoie they are good for some thing hut I don’t know what its is. It is fun to catch them. Ill some countries hut not ill this they keep them round in hon es to kill hugs. t A turtle has no teeth hut it don make any difference, for theie are hones in their mouths arid can hold on to a stick all day if you stay and pull. I don't believe they ever die hardly. I don’t know how I should go to work to kill a turtle unless 1 smashed him with a lug hummer. The shells are real pretty when yon have boiled the turtle partly out. They live all winter like hears with out nothing to eat I don’t see how they do it. I think they are awful homely. Their eyes look as if they were set in up side down. They mostly Btay in the same place. It takes them a long while to get anywhere. There are great many kinds of turtles and some are good to est. This is all I can think of about turtles. Tiie Golden Rule and the Kui.e ok Gold.—A few days ago a gentle man of this city received by mail a cheek for fr>00. He deposited it in his bank, and went down into the street, there to be met by a rumor that sent him back in haste. Just twenty-five minutes had elapsed. The teller's little door was shut. The money had gone. Had it been stolen? Was the banker a swindler? No; lie had failed. About the same time a merchant received a large quantity of goods one day near the close of business hours. He made some commonplace excuse for not making immediate payment, and promised to send a cheek the next morning. The first announcement of the morning was that lie had failed. He had the goods, but the real owner was without his cheek. Was the merchant a thief? Ought lie to have gone to jail? Not at all. He had merely suspended. He was unable to meet bis obligations. Two young men were recently brought into one of our police cuurts on a charge of stealing shoes from a Third avenue store. They were decent in appear ance, and it was believed by some that they had been driven to crime by want. Had they failed, or Imd they suspended? Or was it because they were u tabic t * meet their obli ge lions? Not at a»l. 1 bey were thieves—common thieves—very com mon thieves. They we e sent to the penitentiary for two months. New York Tribune. Why in ItT—Why is It that eve ryhody goes to the Metropolitan boot and shoe store, No 108 South O street?
