Mr. Davis re tires to take a position as local re porter on the Silt Lake Tribune. Joe was foreman of the State print ing office last wiuter, and knows bow to make a neat paper. He wilt doubtless make a success, at he has the good will of a host of friends to aid him. How They Feel in ’Friseo. Hon. Win. J. Westerfield returned from San Francisco on Thursday. He reported every oue at the Bay willing, aud even anxious for an old time Comstock rise. Arizona, Bodie and other country mining districts have no place at present in the affec tions of stock operators. Sparks ol the old love are already being fanned into a blaze, and witli plenty of money ae there is at preseot, it only needs the development, or pretended development of an ore body any where along the lode to create a raging storm of ezcitement. Continued [success. It will be remembered that Dan. Norton set a giant powder trap last week tor some chicken thieves, and although failing iu the original In tention, succeeded in killing a lynx. He knew, of course, that the thieves Would take warning and keep away, hut thought that anotl.er lynx might came around after a chickeo supper; aoosrdingly the trap was again set, tad again brought down game, this time, however, it was a chicken. The trap Is again set, and it is highly probable that failing larger returns it will lay some eggs this time. Hotel Arrivals.

Bella n me. evening of the 14<It of Oc'ohei next. That of last year still lives in the happy remembrance of our people, and we are assured that the next is to fairly eclipse the last in all its appointments. The attendance from oulaide tow us prom ises to be large, and to accommodate all. Odeon Hall has l«cn secured I for the occasion. Thu committee of | arrangements state that they are as sured of the attendance of fifty Knights in full uniform. See ad. in another column. In Unek. Jerome Withcrell, a pioneer in Como, and long and well known all over the county, has been heard from in Arizona. lie haa struck a large ledge of very rich rock and will be one of the solid men. Far a push ing, energetic man Jerome has more friends to rejoice with him aid fewer enemies to regret his good fortune titan is usually the case with men of bis class. His miue is in an eut of the way place where it is difficult sometimes to get provisions. When last heard from he and his partners, unable to cross the Gila river, had been living ou beans wrlthout any side dishes for twn weeks. They are iu the neighborhood of hostile Indians, but his old friend Geo. Cook has written to him to open his mouth wide and give a Silver City laugh should any warlike demon stration! he made. If this advice 1* fallowed tit* party ia safe. Will be Taken to the Bay, Wm. Devioe who was injured some weeks ago by a cave in the Sutro Tunnel, is paralyzed from his hips down. His recovery in Sutro will be very slow at best, and by the ad vice of his physicians he will be sent to St. Mary’s Hospital, in San Francisco, in a few days. The Quinn Mine Sold. The Quinn Mine was sold on Mon day at Sheriff's sale. A. J. Danfortb purchased it for some San Francisco gentlemen who are closely identified with the company which formerly worktd the mine. It is probable that arrangements will soon be made to resume working. Good for One Drink. John Dolan, tne popular keroseoe gin slinger, has a new wrinkle in bar tickets, which he intends to patent us soon as his attorneys can make out the specifications and are sure of their fee. His idea is that instead of using pasteboard slips as hereto fore, on which to print the bar checks “good for one drink," he will use slabs from a block of matches, each slab one match in thickness. These slabs are about the size of the com mon bar or meal ticket, and the ex tra cost, which will be slight, will be more than returned in the adver tisement alone, without mentioning the saving to the bar resulting from careless or impatient customers light ing their cigars with matches from their tickets. Knights or Pythias. A number of the gentlemen in tending to become charter members of the lodge of it. of P. which will shortly be organized in Gold Hill, met at the Court room of Justice Flanuingham last Baturday eTening. Fifty two names bare been signed to a list for charter members. In ad dition to these, there will be sixteen full rank Knights, making a total membership of sixty-eight. The Lodge was named Harmony No. 13. and Friday October 7, fixed upon as the day to organize. The following named gentlemen were chosen to scree as officers for the term to end in December: F. A. Wise, P. C.; Mercer Otey, C. C.; W. E. Copeland, V. C.; W. A. Hasbrouck, P.; L. Block, M. of E.; W. P. Gammer, M. ot F.; Joe Frankel, K. of R. and S.; Thomas Booth, M. at A.; Wm. Mercer, I. G ; —. Day, O. G. Everybody’s Business, The C. A C. R. R. Company has the contract for carrying the mail along its route. This contract is gen erally supposed to include the deliv ery to the posiofflce. The U. S. government does not put legs on its mall bags, and consequently they are unable to get up and travel trom tbe platform at (lie station to the posiofflce, but lie there until some citizen picks them up and runs them in 'I tie I'ostmaslor cannot be ask ed to carry ibe mail, and it should bo somebody’s business to see tbat It is promptly taksu to tbe office. As it is it is everybody’s or nobody’s busiuess, and should no one feel like attending to it tbe mail might lie on the platform tor an indefinite lime. The R. R. company probab ly receives enough on the contract to justify tbe small outlay necessary to insure prompt delivery, aud whether such is the case or nut, the delivery should be atleuded to by those who have undertaken the work. Fire In Sntro. The lodging house of G. Sayres, in Sutro, was burned to the grouud last Saturday night. The fire oc curred about 11 o’clock, and all those id the house at the time were asleep. Mrs. Greely, a neighhot, first discovered the flames and gave the alarm, but there was no time to save anything. There were five men and three women in the building and all got out s.ifely through the w‘n dows, except John Gould, who was pretty severely burned in making bis escape through the hallway. It is supposed that a lamp left burning in the hall for the men who came off work at 11 o’clock, exploded. Mr. Sayres estimated his loss at about |S,000, on which there was an in I surance of $1,300. The Fire Com pany was out in full force almost immediately, and worked bravely to arrest the destruction of property, but the spread of the fire was too rapid to allow anything in the burn ing house to be saved, and the best that could be done was to save the neighboring building*. Jl Longer Chimney. When the wind is in a certain quarter the fumes In the building where the sulphuric acid process of refining is in operation, make the operatives incline to the belief in the old version. To keep the opinions of their employes abreast with the times the Lyon Mill Co. is putting an extension on the smoke stack, which will give it draft enough to advance the ideas and save the lungs of the refiners. Coroner’s Inquest. Justice O’Donnell, of Sutro, held an inquest on the death of Patrick McCullow, ou Monday, Sept. 5. It was shown in the testimony that after McCuUow shot himself a boy was sent to an Italian ranch near Coony’s for a team with which to take him home. The verdict of the jury was as folllows: "We find that the deceased was a native of Canada aged 37 years; that he came to his death from a gunshot wound inflict ed by the accidental discharge of bis gun while in his own possession, on the 4th day of September 1881, and we find that the conduct of the Ital ians who refused to give the team was heartless aod inhuman in the extreme.” Pipe and Flatiron. On Tuesday night two Chinamen workiug in a wash house on Pike street quarreled about the division ot profits, and after for some time ap plying to each other the epithets, “Tuna muck a high low,” “pedro,” and using other Chinese expressions indicative of low origin and vile habits, one of them lost all control over himself, and began playing for game by beating his eppouent over the head with a brass headed opium pipe. This quickly caused a copius flow of venous blood sufficient to sprinkle a whole ironing which was lying in the table. The injured Chi uaman reached for the Chinaman’s other natural weapon, a flatiron, and the first assailant had to give way to the heavier metal ot bis adversary, and retreated to Chinatown, from which place he emigrated to Vir glnia the next morning, while the man with the wounded head was be ing examined by Big Sam, who pro nounced him out of danger, the wounds already showing indications of the formation of praisworthy pus. _ SL’TRO TUNNEL.
