Sonne, who is superin :ending development work on the McConnell copper property for Utah and Montana people, is very well pleased with the showing of the mine within the past two weeks. In the lower tunnel on the property he started a winze and in this winze, at a depth of 50 feet he has encountered a fine character of sulphide ore. This is the kind of ore that makes a mine, rather than the rich oxides, car bonates, azurites and malachites that are found nearer the surface, but never in great bodies or at depths of any importance. The cutting of this ore goes to prove that the belt of copper on the west side of this valley is continu ous for many miles; and further demonstrates that this is going to prove one of the greatest copper camps in the State at a date not far in the future. Ores Contracted For. Announcement has just been made that the Utah Smelting Co., of Ogden, has completed a contract with one of the mines at Butte, Mont., to furnish the necessary copper ores for their smelting plant, now rapidly nearing com pletion at Ogden. With this un limited amount of available cop per as a base the Ogden plant will have no difficulty in handling their ever increasing output of Nevada silicious ores. Considering that the smelter trust has, for the past two years, been steadily increasing the prices on Nevada ores, for no other rea son than that they could, this new independent .^melting enterprise should be no small factor in the development of the Nevada mines. In Douglas County. T. P. Mack, the surveyor, was out from Dayton on business this week. He is one of the parties who surveyed the county line be tween Douglas and Lyon counties and states that the new camp of Buckskin is entirely in Douglas county. Wet’, there will be other camps in Lyoi county not a great distance from Yerington in the near future. However, should Buckskin prove to be a thriving and permanent camp, which is now the indication, Mason Valley will be greatly benefitted, as this will be the closest point at which to secure hay, grain, vegetables, flour and all kinds of farm pro duce. Allotment Made. The allotment of lands on the Walker Lake Reservation has been made, except a small portion of grazing land, and this will soon be finished up. The Indians are having a big fandango there this week, which will probably con tinue there next week. The red tape part of the proceeding to throw the Reservation open to prospectors will now have to be gone through, and as before stat ed, it will probably be September before the President will issue the proclamation throwing open the mineral land to the prospectors. Mountain View, This is the name of the new townsite near Buckskin which, if the ground proves as rich as ex pected, will be considerable of a camp itself. It is located very fa vorably for a townsite and the lots laid out are large and roomy. Should Buckskin prove itself up as a good producer Mountain View lots will be in great demand. W. L. Brandon & Co. are hand ling this townsite and a well is now being sunk on the ground to secure water. At a depth of about 50 feet some fine looking gravel containing gold has been encoun tered. The Brandon Co. also owns some promising lode claims ad joining the townsite property. New Book on Nevada. The Southern Pacific Co. is now gathering statistics and compiling a new book on the resources of Nevada, which, when completed, will be largely distributed all over the world. It will be a work of art as well as of information and will, undoubtedly, do much tow ards turning the eyes of the world to the now rapidly advancing sagebrush State. Notice to Prospectors and Others. Under the State law of Nevada, approved March 16, 1895, the Uni versity of Nevada is required to receive, examine and report upon the mineral contents and values of all ores sent by the citizens of the State and taken from within j the boundaries of the State. Pro vision has been made in the Uni versity budget for a small yearly sum of money to defray the ex penses of carrying out this work. This sum is not sufficient to em ploy a man for this work during the Summer recess of the Univer sity, and consequently all speci mens and samples received during these months are held over until the first week in September, at which time the necessary work is done and the reports are rendered. Notice is herewith given that1 all the samples received after May 20 will be held over until Septem ber 1, at which time reports will be sent out in the order in which they were received. Mining Department, University of Nevada. Reno, Nevada, May 16, 1906. The Way Californians Advertise, Last Saturday the Santa Cruz, Cal., band and a bunch of other boosters passed through Wabuska on their way to Tonopah, Gold field and other southern Nevada mining camps. There were about sixty people in the crowd, and the band consisted of twenty-two pieces. Some excellent selections were splendidly rendered while tfofe train stopped at Wabuska. The object of the trip is to ad vertise Santa Cruz as a w atering place and resort, and the crowd carried a ton or more of literature bearing upon the subject that Santa Cruz is the greatest seaside resort on the Pacific Coast. The Santa Cruz people certainly be lieve in advertising. Uncle Rube Again. By request the Yerington Dra matic Club will produce “Uncle Rube ” again on the night of June i, in the Owl Hall. The play, as produced last Friday night, was exceedingly well put on, and a number of the characters excel lently sustained. A large audi ence also greeted the players. The next production will probably be better than the first, as a num ber of specialties will be added. After the performance there will be a dance, and lunch will be served at 12 at Spangler Hall. Lunch will be 25cts. per plate and strawberries and cream 25cts. per plate. Dayton Doings. Mis* Clara King is visiting Carson friends. Mrs. J. H. Rae is quite ill wit hheart trouble.

The com plaint was made by Andrew Glaze, who claimed that Edwards knocked him down one night last week while he was on his way to his room. Glaze jumped up and ran away, as he feared that he was going to be robbed. The jury in the case failed to agree—seven being for conviction and five for acquittal.
