FULTON, District Passenger Agent, So. Pac. Co., Reno, Nevada. County Boundaries. Ex-Senator Wm. M. Stewart is of the opinion that Bullirog should be the'center of a new county, and expresses himself rather forcibly In an interview' with the Bullfrog Miner. He says, in part: “ Developments in different parts of Nye and Esmeralda counties have created the necessity for a change of county boundaries. County seats should be located as near as practical in the center of population, and also in territor ial centers. “ The county seat of Nye county is on the county line. It is 200 miles to the southeast end of the county and nearly as far to the northeast corner. If the county boundaries must remain unchang ed, the inhabitants of Nye county outside of Tonopah will soon com mence a struggle for a more cen tral location for the county seat which will unsettle business at Tonopah. “ Suppose Esmeralda county were composed of that part of Nye and Esmeralda which lies south of the line between the second and third range of townships south of Mt. Diablo base, and the balance of Esmeralda c6unty were annex ed to Nye. That would place To nopah in the center of population 01 :\ye county. " Eventually, the north part of what is now Esmeralda might be joined to Lyon and a portion of the northeast part of Nye might be joined to some other county or counties, depending upon the de velopment of the county. “ Esmeralda county might then have a county seat at Bullfrog which would be equal distance be tween the extremities northerly and southerly. It is true the county would be in the shape of a triangle with the long side on the California line, but that portion of California lying east of Death Val ley at least would trade with Bull frog, although it would not pay taxes in that county. “The two railroads approaching Bullfrog from the south will make it a town of great importance, be cause there can be no doubt that the Bullfrog mining district is the most extensive, if not the most important of any in the State. This matter should be considered by the people of Nye and Esmer alda counties with a view of the greatest good to the greatest num ber. Certainly no county is bene fitted by outlying provinces which occasion enormous expense in conducting civil and crimitial busi ness.” Getting Her Deserts. The San Francisco Chronicle re cently published a lengthy edi torial under the heading, “ Neva da’s Development,” which reviews the ‘‘"great awakening of interest in the mineral wealth and mining developments in Nevada taking place all over the country.” It then speaks of the trade condi tions and says a strong rivalry has been aroused among the merchants of most of the cities to which the new camps of Nevada are acces sible or being made accessible by rail. “ What are the San Francis co merchants doing ? ” asks the Chronicle. The Carson City News takes up the query and nicely tells what they have done for Ne vada. Its reply is as follows: The San Francisco merchants have throttled Nevada. The San Francisco merchants have prevented the establishment of wholesale houses in the State. The San Francisco merchants have forced Nevada consumers to pay for the “ back haul.” The San Francisco merchants have shut Nevada out from a com petitive market. The San Francisco merchants, like the San Francisco stock man ipulators, have endeavored to squeeze Nevada like a lemon. Yes, what are San Francisco merchants doing? They are watching their trade slip away, while Los Angeles, Salt Lake and far away Denver are reaping the benefits that have come through the building of the San Pedro road. Was the greed of the Southern Pacific Company the sole cause for its failure to give Nevada a terminal point and compel local importers to pay freight from the East to Sacramento and local charges back to this State? Not entirely. The merchants of San Francisco went to Hunting ton, to Hays and later to Harri irian, and said: “We want to hold Nevada in our grasp. We want to charge the people of sagebrushdom all that the traffic will bear, and you must be a party to our scheme. You must charge a prohibitive rate on all supplies that they could get from the East, so that we can enjoy a monopoly of the trade with that State. You must do this or we will ship over the Northern or Canadian Pacific and bring our goods by water from the w’estern termini ot tnese roads. That is what the San Francisco merchants have done. Nevada built the finest structures in San Francisco out of the Comstock mines, and later established and supported many of the mercantile houses in the city that sucked the lifeblood of the commonwealth. The San Francisco merchants are now getting their just deserts. Business is stagnant, and it will grow worse, especially after the Western Pacific makes of Reno a terminal point and ends the “ back haul ” charge, which has done more than all other agencies com bined to hold Nevada back. The San Francisco merchants can already read the handwriting on the wall. A Vindication for Dr. Pierce. A verdict lias been rendered in favor of the plaintiff in the suit brought against the Ladies’ Home Journal (published by the Curtis Publishing Co.) by the World’s Dispensary Medical Association, of which Dr. R. V. Pierce is Presi dent. The suit was brought by Doctor Pierce against the Curtis Publishing Co., for making false statements about one of his stand ard family medicines known as Dr. Pierce’s Favorite Prescription. In the May number of the Ladies' Home Journal (1904), Mr. Kdward Bok, the editor, stated that Dr. Pierce’s Favorite Presciption con tained alcohol and some otliei harmful ingredients, and Dr. Pierce had in the action alleged that the defendant maliciously published this article containing such false and defamatory matter. Dr. Pierce further claimed that uc alcohol is or ever was contained in his Favorite Prescription, that said medicine was a vegetable prepara tion and contained no deleterious ingredients whatever; that Mr Bok's statement, pretending tc give some of the ingredients ol said medicine, was wholly and ab : solutely false. During the trial ] the Vice-President of the World’s j Dispensary Medical Association stated that the ingredients of Dr Pierce’s Favorite Prescription were extracted from the following native roots: Golden seal, blue cohosh, lady’s slipper, black co hosh and unicorn, by means ol pure glycerine. He was asked how he knew, as a physician and experienced medical man, that the Favorite Presciption was a cure for the diseases peculiar to women such as amenorrhea, dysmenor rhea, ante-version, retroversion Hot-Breads Light and Sweet are made with ROYAL BAKING POWDER Absolute/y Purm AntWdyspeptlci maybeeatea without Inconvenience even by persona with delicate digestion ■OVAt MAXIMO POWDCPt CO.. —W VO— and lie stated that lie knew such was the fact because of his pro fessional experience and the many thousands of women whose ills had been cured by this Prescrip tion. The Vice-President, being asked to give his authorities, read from the standard works, such as the United States Dispensatory, The American Dispensatory and many other standard medical books. The retraction printed by the Curtis Publishing Company two months after the libelous state ment appeared and nearly two months after the suit had been be gun, stated definitely that analyses had been made at their request, and that the Favorite Prescription did not contain either alcohol, opium or digitalis.
