Bamberger and associates to Eugene Meyer, Jr., & Cfc, of the-Western Nevada Copper Com pany, of Yerington, Nev., that concern has passed into the hands of the Meyer Company and Samuel Newhouse, a rich copper mine owner. He arrived from the West last week, and the transaction, which has been under negotiation for a long time, was carried out December 27, the sale being made for $150,000. D. H. Peery, of Salt Lake City, resigned from the board of directors and is succeded by Mr. Meyer, this leaving the personnel of the board as follows: C. B. Loose, of the Grand Central and Victoria mines, Untie, Utah, the President; Prank Knox, President of the National Bank of the Republic, Salt Lake City, the Vice-Pres ident and Treasurer; Senator Smoot, of Utah, Samuel Newhouse and Eugene Meyer, Jr. The properties of the company consist of the Dyer’grouplof mines in Yerington. Newhouse’8 expert commends it as one of the big copper propositions of that Nevada camp of copper. It is the in tention, said Mr. Newhouse, to continue this work energetically, as he is 'con vinced the company’s resources are among the greatest in Nevada. Mr. Bamberger, who, with his New York asso ciates, retires from the undertaking which promises so much, was one of the promoters of the Western Nevada Cop per Company.—New York Press. A JACOBS STORY A magazine editor was talking about W. W. Jacobs, the famous humorist. "He is a quiet, modest chap. When I praised his wonderful skill in the writing of short stories, he said that it was only their surprises that made his stories take. "Then to illustrate what he meant, he told me a story wherein the surprises came fast and furious. "He said that a lawyer, defending a man accused of house-breaking, spoke like this: 1 ‘ ‘Your honor, I submit that my client did not break into the house at all. He found the parlor window open and merely inserted his right arm and re moved a few trifling articles. Now, my client’s arm is not himself, and I fail to see how you can punish the whole indi vidual for an offense committed only by one of his limbs. ’ “ ‘That argument,’ 6aid the Judge, ‘is very well put. Following it logically, I sentence the defendant’s arm to one year’s imprisonment. He can accom pany it or not, as he chooses. ’ "The defendant smiled, and with his lawyer’s assistance unscrewed his cork arm, and, leaving it in the dock, walked out.”_ YERINGTON COPPER CO. WILL HUSTLE D. E. McPherson, of the Yerington Copper Company, who returned from Salt Lake the first of the week, says there will be hustliug times at his com pany’s property this Spring and Sum mer. Besides a hoisting plant the com pany has now ordered a Rand compressor and power drills, and is making every arrangement to open up its fine property in a systematic manner. With the ap pliances to be installed which will no doubt be run by electric power, it will not be long before the Yerington Com pany will have its property opened in shape for the steady production of first class shipping ore. DUGUS OWNERS HERE W. C. Orem and F. J. Hagenbarth, Principal owners of the Nevada-Douglas mine were arrivals from Salt Lake Thurs day night, and left for the mine yester day morning. They are here to inspect work on the property and arrange for fu inre development, installation of ma chinery, etc. Among other details the traction engine route from the Nevada ^d California road to the mine will be looked into.

I*. H. Bartholomew, who has been connected with the mining life of sev eral Nevada camps in which Salt Lakers are large owners of properties, for sev eral years, recently returned to Salt Lake after a visit to the Mason Valley district and tells the Salt Lake Tribune that Mason Valley will yet surprise the world with her copper production. Mr. Bartholomew is one who knows Yering ton like a book, growing with the camp during the past few eventful months of this splendid section’s career. The de posits of this district, as disclosed on such properties as the Nevada- Douglas, Mason Valley, Bluestone, Malachite, McConnell, and a half score of others, are So uniformly richer than Ely, and are so extensive, that he looks for equal returns in point of value from both camps. Next to the Malachite group, owned by Salt Lakers, Mr. Bartholomew has a group of eight claims known as the Iron Chief property. This group, he stated, contains the same contact from which so many of the Yerington mines are taking such sensational ores of the red metal. He has a small force of men at work at this time, but upon complet ing his mission in Salt Lake, he will return to Yerington and get down to earnest development work. He has every confidence in his possessions, and will expend eveiy effort to open a typical Yerington property. There is a rumor that negotiations are on for the sale of the Ludwig mine by the present owners to a Utah or Mon tana syndicate and the price is said to be something over $1,000,000. Dr. B. B. Berger, of Wyoming, who is interested in a bunch of eight copper claims west of Yerington, has been here for some weeks, and is another man who predicts that the Mason Valley district will be a hummer in the near future. Wm. A. Johnson, a prominent Colora do mining man, now located in Gold field, has been here during the week looking over the mining situation in the district. He is very favorable impressed with the future prospects of this camp. W. N. Wood, the Yerington assayer, has recently fitted up his office and labora tory in good style. He has put in a new and larger furnace, and roll crusher and other equipments which enable him to do first-class work at .reasonable prices.. The icemen will have to get a move on to secure a crop in this section this season. There will be a call for several thousand tons of ice in this community next Summer and it will behoove deal ers to secure as large a crop as possible. J. A. Guttery, of Loma, the new town on the Reservation, about 18 miles east of Yerington, was in town the first of the week on business. He says there will be things doings at Loma as soon as Spring opens and lumber can be ob tained. Clear up the complexion, cleanse the liver and tone the system. You can best do this by a dose or two of DeWitt’s Little Early Risers. Safe, reliable little pills with a reputation. The pills that everyone knows. Recommended by G. I. Leavitt & Son. Samuel Levi, mining expert for the National Exploration Company of Utah, was an arrival on Sunday’s belated stage to look over some copper properties in this section, but fouud the weather so fierce that he postponed the job until a future date, and took the stage out Mon day. * ‘They like the taste as well as maple sugar” is what one mother wrote of Ken nedy’s Laxative (containing) Honey and Tar.

Billings, of Denver, has been looking over this district for the past week.

DEATH OFALONZO COLBY Mr. Alonzo Colby, a mining man of Sonora, Cal., who came here some weeks ago on business and was stricken with pneumonia, died yesterday at the Smith hospital. Mr. Colby was 66 years of age and leaves no relatives known of on this coast. He was a Mason in high stand ing and the local lodge here gave him every attention. The remains of de ceased will be shipped to Sonora today, where the burial will take place next Monday. LIKES KENNEDY CON. W. G. I/O vie, the mining man, paid Buckskin a visit yesterday and inspected the Kennedy Con. mine. He was ac companied by W. C. Pitt and Mr. Campbell, who with W. D. Kennedy, own the property. Mr. Lovie has an option on two-thirds of the stock of the property and has people who are anxious to take it over. There will be a meeting of the stockholders of the company some time in February and it is more than likely that Mr. l/ovie’s people will take the property. He is very well pleased with it himself after making a carful ex amination of it. There are several rich stroik? of ore in the leases on the prop erty, as' has before been mentioned, but ""gfl&rsa Uietg is a vast’quantity of _ milling ore—ore that will run from ysr to $20 per ton. This is the kind of a property that capital is looking for, and also that benefits the country in which it is located. It may be confidently ex pected that there will be something do ing in Buckskin within the next two months. _ ANOTHER DAYTON ’I0NEER GROSSES DIVIDE Wm. E. Annis, a resident of Dayton and vicinity for many years, crossed the Great Divide on Wednesday morning of this week.
