Yerington held its first city election this week. Nothing now remains but to go ahead and build up the town on some well regulated system. The first order should be one of general cleaning up. The next thing should be the grading of the principal streets in the town and the establishment of a grade to all streets so that there will be no pools of stagnant water accumulate during a rain storm. There is plenty of fall to do this and it can be done at no great expense. Below will be found a plan of the town as it was recently surveyed for streets and alleys. This plat shows only the streets and blocks. These blocks have been subdivided into lots and dur ing the past month over one hundred lots have been sold at prices ranging is practically no sickness in this section now, and with moderate equipment for sanitary purposes there will be no such thing as an epidemic of any disease pos sible. Yerington can be made a pretty place. The soil is fertile, and shade trees, lawns and shrubbery can be ob tained with little exertion after the w ater system is in operation. At the present time the place appears as an oasis on the desert to the mining men who come from any other part of the State, especially the.camps in the southern part. The trees are green and the flow'ers will soon be in bloom, while all about the valley the fields are carpeted with green alfalfa and grain. It is rarely the case that such a pleas ant combination of mining and agricul have a pleasant home in the valley, sur rounded by trees, lawn and flowers. How many, think you, would not prefer to avail themselves of such a condition rather than remain in a bunk house at a mine after their day of toil is over ? Can you not see from this what is going to make of Yerington a city of considerable proportions ? Is there a place in the State that you can go to and make as certain an investment as would be the purchase of property in Yerington ? There are some knockers here, to be sure; they are loud and lusty, but what place has them not ? The least atten tion paid to them the better, and after they have howled themselves hoarse about the unsanitary conditions, bad wa ter and low land, there will arise the '□to HOOD DCOCOO COO PT—□ £00 i—IP lO CIO PCOCPaCO □□□□anRHnnRHRHona PCOCPOCOP □□tl'DDtatUOD nr 1 COP CIO CO COD PCO □ □ CO □a co coa atg- co □cowooacrao' □co co cod at □CZMZOMOtOt ^COOUOOgiDoDCP VA O CP □co co cua no i—u—innipon mo ocpnannsnc] □CKPODOOCO COD CTOCOJOOCODaDD CP CD O □o mo cco pto r—non amo mo to rojcppgo a n loo □□coDaojo od°croootp toaoco co a o □a co coa □mqq-.-jigq qqgqfto cig gmongco to cj cop nr—Id kr-rxr—1\P—"t CIQ] * All.JTI-JD CXTJ EM LU CO □cp co od i_i Lg qpL'^pto eggccracpipp cop □CO mr—iB BB □ 5p HEMIC] c n a DC □ □□ DQ CO QQ DP CD Pp CD □□ □ D CD azi □ □□ aa rz rrVif i cd Cd d OD CO DD d □□ izz □□ nczi rr~i cqq qrrCJ d d? d aaom v/ri a nr-11—I no □□ i^FA^Bmd-rin.D^ cm tm do am r~—iir~~1 ■—>j—i r M ^fziCTQ-arD i □CP CO CPP DO OOQDIOCP Ctirt CPD OCO □o co aa do rzoondcoop mo cog odd dcp c C O CO od go r~~o oa dcp j cop coo co cdp do too aocoamcoegoa qcgo qc_j to .» o □o cm op mo o □□ dcpt „ j go rg dokooolpozkpqpro -j l j c—! ro r—i no aomo 3n □£? _J Odd opt ro co pep co cd pco r~g cop Dcpgtgo mo eg top crop pop PLAT OF THE CITY OF YERINGTON. from $150 to $300. The boundary lines of the city take in a tract of land one and a quarter miles north and south by a mile east and west, and the center of the town is about where Broadway branches off from Main street. A water company has already been or ganized and by August, or before, it is expected to have water flowing through the mains into the city. It has been demonstrated by survey that a good sewer system can be established for the town and it will probably not be long before a sewer system will be established either by the city or a private corpora tion. ■ With a water system and a sewer sys tem, Yerington will be one of the nicest little cities in the State to live in. There tural interests exist as occur in the Yer ington district. Here we have a valley forty miles long by six to eight miles in width of as fine agricultural land as ex ists on the Coast. Yerington is located in the center of this great tract of fertile land. To the east and west of the val ley lie the ranges of hills that contain such a vast amount of mineral—copper, gold and silver—that the fame of the district has gone abroad to every other State in the Union. It is but a drive of a few miles to any of the mines in the district, and when sufficient development work Iras been done on the properties to warrant the construction of reduction plants, there is no doubt that an electric line of road will reach every property from Yerington. The miner can then new city of Yerington, just the same. You can never again buy property as cheaply in Yerington as you can get it today. Take our word for it. We have predicted this condition for years past. True, it has been a little longer coming than we anticipated, but you can see now, for yourself, that our judgment was not at fault. It is not at fault when we tell you in this article that the things projected for the new city of Yerington will all come to pass. You can get in on the ground floor now or you can stay out. The time has passed when it is necessary to urge people to invest their money here. They are coming in an l doing it. Don’t worry; keep your eye on Yer ton. THE FIRST CITY ELECTION Tuesday of this week was the day set for the first city election in Yerington. The day was a pleasant one and there was considerable stir in the town but there seemed to exist nothing but good natured rivalry for the offices. In the first ward there were 52 votes cast with the following result: For Mavor, Lam, 14; Smith, 35; for Councilmen, Gallagher, 48; Hironymous, 8; Ross, 41; for City Clerk, Powers, 40; Vicks, 9. In the second ward there were 51 votes cast with the following result: For Mayor, Lam, 36; Smith, 15; for Councilmen, Hanson, 16; Knierim, 18; Snyder, 20; Sonne, 28; Wagoner 16; for City Clerk, Powers, 35; Vicks, 14. The above vote makes a tie on the Ma'-or fight, but a couple of votes in the first ward, which were thrown out on account of some irregularity, but which will undoubtedly be counted, were for Smith, and with" these votes he will be elected by one or two votes. The Councilmen are Gallagher and Ross for the First Ward and Sonne and Snyder for the Second Ward, with W. F. Powers for Clerk. We believe a pretty good set of officers have been selected, and hope to see things move in the vray of improvement. All of the officers, except Mayor Smith and Councilman Sonne are old residents here. The two latter have been here for a couple of years and have good ideas, we believe, as to what is necessary for advancement. The other officers are of the progressive class, and with concerted action much good can be accomplished this Summer. The first action, prob ably, will be the framing up of a batch of ordinances for the establishment of a grade for the town, the removal of ob structions on the streets, the grading of Main street anti the removal of all filth from back yards, etc., and a general im provement in the sanitary conditions of the town. Some money will have to be raised to accomplish these things and it will be a matter to be considered whether this shall be done by a bond issue or a spec ial tax. The plan for all to work upon should be for Improvement. Let everybody get in and help the officials make of Yering ton one of the prettiest little cities in the State. It can be done, and at no great expense. Don’t knock ; be a booster. EASTERN STAR TO ORGANIZE A Chapter of the Order of Eastern Star, the ladies’ adjunct of the F. & A. M., will lie organized in Yerington next Monday evening, at which time Grand Matron, Anna Warren, will be here from Reno, and Grand Patron Bellam, from Sparks, to carry on the work of or ganization. Food don’t digest? Because the stom ach lacks some one of the essential di gestants or the digestive juices are not properly balanced. Then, too, it is this undigested food that causes sourness and painful indigestion. Kodol For Indiges tion should be used for relief. Kodol is a solution of vegetable acids. It digests what you eat, and corrects the deficien cies of the digestion. Kodol conforms to the National Pure Food and Drug Law. Sold here by G. I. Leavitt & Son. USE MODERATE EXPENSE Word was received from the Kilts Kodge, of Spokane, yesterday to bury the remains of John King here at “mod erate expense.” Mr. King was a life member of the Order. His funeral will take place today and his friends will see that he has decent burial. Call at the Owl Cafe for your Sunday dinner. All kinds of good things. NEVADA-DOUGLAS ANNUAL MEETING The annual meeting of the Nevada Douglas Copper Company, operating at Yerington, Nevada, was held in Salt Lake last Monday evening. J. D. Wood was elected President; F. J. Hagenbartli, Vice-President; W. V. Rice, Treasurer; W. C. Orem, Secretary and General Manager; the other directors being H. P. Henderson, F. A. Sclnrmer and E. R. Hastings, of Boston, and A. L. Pearce, of London. The financial report shows that nearly $3,500,000 has -been paid for property purchase account. Equipment has cost over $31,000; development nearly $45, 000, and other expenses a little more than $14,000. Cash on hand amounts to nearly $45,000, while treasury stock sold makes available $155,000 more. The company owns 29 claims in its copper property, an iron mine four miles away, mill sites and water rights, all free of indebtedness of any kind, and development work is progressing on a most extensive scale. The mine is con sidered as a mountain of copper ore, until values running from 2 up to 40 per cent. The report of Manager W. C. Orem takes up the work done at the property in great detail and makes an exhibit that the shareholders should be proud of. It is not often that a company crowds as much development and does as much other business in a year from the time of starting as has been done by the Ne vada-Douglas Company. Neither is it often that such tremendous Ixxlies of ore are opened in so short a time. Deep tunnels are now being driven clear through the Douglas Mountain and at the same time shafts are being sunk to connect with them. Great compress ors and hoists are being installed at the present time and, before the present year is over, the property will be in shape to supph an enormous tonnage to mills and smelters. That these will be built by the company at the proper time goes without saying, and in the mean time there is every reason to believe that the company will make a large amount of money by shipping its high grade ores, taken out in development, to outside reduction works. DROWNED IN CARSON RIVER Young Joe Quilici was drowned in the Carson River, just below Dayton, last week Friday. Young Quilici and a friend named Pagnelli were crossing the river with a 4-horse team when the current overturned the wagon and Quilici was caught underneath and drowned. Three of the animals in the team were also drowned, but Pagnelli managed to reach shore. The body of Quilici was not re covered until the next day, when two Indians found it some distance below where the accident happened. The fu neral of deceased took place in Virginia City the first of this week. Quilici was a nephew of Joseph Quilici, formerly lessee of the Sutro ranch on the Carson River. MORE BUILDINGS Rymal and Cliokolate have erected a building on the rear of a Broadway lot which will be leased as a Chinese laun dry. They expect to erect two more buildings on the Kaufman and Downey tract as soon as lumber can be obtained. John Russell, of the Commercial din ing room, purchased three lots from the Yerington Realty Syndicate this week and is going to build three dwelling houses as soon as the lumber, which he has ordered, arrives. These houses will all be on Nevada street, the first street east of Main. Several other buildings are contemplated by different parties just as soon as lumber arrives. REAL ESTATE DEALS W. T. Campbell purchased this week the property of S. J. Sweetman on Main street. The deal was negotiated by Ed Blanchard and the price paid for the ground and buildings was $2,200. R. J. Ross sold this week the corner property on Bridge and Main streets. The price on this property was $1,000. It was purchased by a gentleman from California who intends to erect a store building thereon. Gus Nye also got a portion of the ground, upon which he will erect a building in which to open a restaurant. BOUND OVER Robert Tilly, charged with cutting an Indian at the Bridge street camp last week, had a hearing before Justice Wood Thursday and was bound over to appear before the grand jury with bonds fixed at $1,000. Not being able to furnish the bond Tilly was taken to Dayton for keeping until the meeting of the grand jury. The Indian who was cut is in a bad way, it is said, and may not recover from his wounds -seven in number. Bee’s Laxative Cough Syrup, contain ing Honey and Tar, is especially appro priate for children, no opiates or poisons of any character, conforms to the condi tions of the National Pure Food and Drug Law, June 30, 1906.
