M.J From the observations which ] have been fortunate to make dur ing a short stay in the section sur rounding Yerington and the Walk er River Indian Reservation, I have noticed the opportunities awaiting the investment of capital for vari ous enterprises. The fact that a large copper and iron belt exists to the west of Yerington and vi cinity, according to the data fur nished on plats from the Surveyor General’s office, embracing a length of at lest 14 miles, from dis coveries actually made while sur veys were being prosecuted offic eiatly, the distance west of Yer ington, wherein these copper belts exist, being from 6 to 16 miles; also, that to the east of the same center, are shown copper and gold belts, though more in the nature of gold formations. Continuing this series, on the confines of the Walker River Indian Reservation, say 20 miles east and 30 to 40 miles southeast, are to be found high values in gold, copper and various metals, all of which admit active exploitation. Further, that sites for towns are available; that water sufficient for hydraulic and electric power and lighting to the towns and mines, which will of necessity be required, in order to vie with districts of other now cel ebrated mining sections is at hand, and can be developed from the streams flowing along the canyons east and west. In addition, the fact that representatives of East ern capital have been, and are on the ground for the purpose of se curing lands and rights of various kinds available, in order that re turns for their investments may be secured, and in several cases options and purchases have been made. Anticipating the near fu ture, it will, of necessity, appeal to the interested owners of property in the vicinity mentioned, to do all in their power to advance from a mining, agricultural, industrial and commercial point of view, all which may apply to the circum stances presenting themselves. The town of Yerington is situ ated in Mason Valley, fertility sur rounding. The Walker River lies to the west about one mile, run ning north and south, and being about 80 feet wide at the bridge, which is crossed in order to travel along the main road to Wabuska, northward, 14 miles distant, at which point the Southern Pacific railroad is reached. The valley is of various widths, but in the Yer ington vicinity it is about to miles across. Opportunities are many for improvements of all kinds in this valley. The Bluestone, Lud wig, Douglas, McConnell, Dyer, Minnesota and other mines are within close proximity after leav ing the foothills westward, and the results of operations of these men tioned have been satisfactory, they being in the copper belt. As the Walker River runs between Yer ington and the mines mentioned, northerly and southerly, this sec tion will doubtless be the scene for active operations. Aside, however, from what has | been stated, it is necessary that an up-to-date system of sewerage, drainage, electric lighting and power, as wrell as pure water, be I inaugurated in the Mason Valley. | This applies to the town of Yer ington and others which will in evitably come into existence at an early date. Facilities and possi bilities are at hand from an engi ; ueering point of view. Investiga tions, surveys and plans should be made to determine the extent of said facilities, and I see no reason why success should not be attain ed, if the owners of property in the vicinity referred to will con sider the matter and combine to realize what is awaiting them in the future from a financial stand point. It is further suggested that the owners of property meet at some suitable time and consider and form plans for the improvement of the section mentioned—both in Yerington as well as the outlying districts. That a subscription be made for the purpose of defraying the expenses of investigation as to incorporation of the town of 1 Yerington and other places in | which those who reside in other i districts maybe interested. This | includes expenses for improve ments of all kinds from a modern ! point of view—such as electric ! lighting and power, sewerage, idrainage, grading and generally I bringing the facilities from the railroad to this section. Tells About Mason Valley Mines* The Salt Lake Tribune of a few days ago says that within the next lew days Capt. Tibbitts, who has been successful in connection with other Salt Lakers in securing one of the biggest Nevada copper propositions in the Mason Valley country, at Yerington, will leave for that State. In speaking about Nevada generally, Capt. Tibbitts stated that there are two enor mous copper belts extending through Nevada. ELY IS MOST PROMINENT. Of the eastern belt, Kly, at the present time, is the most promi nent and well known. Of the western belt, Yerington at this time is the leading district, and those who have visited both camps and investigated the conditions existing in both districts have no hesitancy in declaring that the Yeringtou region will soon be giv ing Kly a run for the greatest amount of public approval. DEPOSITS OF LOW GRADE ORE. The Captain stated that it was not the very rich ore that the Yer ington district lias shipped, and cau continue to ship, that makes of any district a permanent and capital-inducing region, but it is the incalculably enormous depos its of low grade ore that genera tions of the most active and ex haustive operators cannot fully exhaust that will make of Yering ton one of the greatest copper camps. BLl'ESTONE PROPERTY. On the Bluestone property of Yerington the management has disclosed up to date one body of THE OLD RELIABLE BAKING POWDER IBSOLUTELY PURE The greatest of modern-time helps to perfect cooking Used in the best fam ilies the world over ROY At. BAKING POWDER CO., MEW YORK this copper ore of a known length of 700 feet, and no one knows how much longer it may prove to be, with a width of 600 feet, while the present workings have been going through this body to a depth of 320 feet, and no end of ore is in sight yet. This gives a small idea of what that region is capable of, yet on the Mason Valley ground is a still richer prospect, as a re cent writer stated that the Mason Valley property contained more values than the Bluestone. FORTUNATE MINE PURCHASE. The Salt Lakers who have cor ralled this Mason Valley property at the figures they did are to be counted as among the most fortu nate mine purchasers of the year. -■ California * Dtoada marble Company & Dealers in all the* Marbles and Granites Produced In the World CARSON CITY NEVADA ii*joE'smIth] < > ■ I ■ ■ ».
