Latest News From the I
j^f Fergus County
Conditions In southern Nevada are ab
normal, and once more especially is
that the case with Goldfield. Before
the great Mohawk strike, which set
the country aflame, business in Gold
field was pursuing an even tenor, the
railroads were handling traffic reason
ably well, and although the town was
full of people, everyone was com
fortably housed and there was plenty
to eat and drink. But as fall and win
ter set in, the whole country seemed
to pour into Goldfield, and just as the
storm of the past few days broke upon
the town, there was an influx of peo
ple that fell upon Goldfield like a
swarming of bees. They poured in up
on a town that was already full to
overflowing, and In the midst of as :
fierce a storm as ever swept the flinty i
wastes of a Nevada desert. It was pit
iful and cruel, and, of course, there
»as suffering and sicknesB and death.
There have been many deaths in
Goldfield the past month or two, more,
perhaps, than people generally know
about; but they have not been in such
numbers as have been reported. The
death rate during the worst of this
prevailing storm has averaged not
more than four per day, as against 20,
as reported. At one time there were
14 bodies at the morgue, but that cov
ered the mortality for several days.
But these deaths did not result from
any inherent viciousness or depravity
of the climate. Nevada's climate, on ;
the whole, compares very favorably
with that of Colorado, famed the world
over for its salubrity. The trouble at
this particular time, was that the peo
ple were not prepared for such a
sharp storm, and there were more peo
ple than accommodations. Exposure
resulted, either self-imposed or una
voidable, and with hospitals full and
other haven for the sick to be
nursed back Into health, many deaths
naturally resulted. But in many cases,
death was traceable to reckless ex
posure or loose habits of life.
Some of our many visitors seemed
to think the people of Goldfield were
to be held responsible in some way
for their discomforts, as if they had
been invited here to a great circus,
their money taken and then turned
adrift without shelter or other enter
tainment. In fact, several informal in
dignation meetings were held, encour
aged by the hysteria of a "tenderfoot"
newspaper, to denounce the people of
Goldfield for not having built hotels
and fine restaurants for them, as if
all that the pioneers came here for
was to discover a gold camp and build
a city all in preparation for their com
ing. With all respect to these, our
new-found friends, we beg to say that
the pioneers of this camp came into
this desert to mine. They were min
ers, and not hotel kepers. They did
not come to build a tropical garden, or
a summer resort, nor have they ever
advertised this camp as such. They
were no more under obligations to di
vert their money intended for mining
to the building of hotels and other util
ities, than the preachers to build brew
eries. It simply was not in their line.
But hotels were built, and good ones,
too, but unfortunately, they burned
down. Now, these self-same gentle
men who have come here to speculate
in mining stocks and run newspapers
and things, have the same opportunity
to serve their fellow men of the future
Goldfield, as the old-timers had, and
they are under the same obligation to
turn in and spend their money build
ing hotels as were the pioneer miners.
Some aay in the future there may be
another storm, and there may be more
people than accommodations. Get to
work, gentlemen. It makes no differ
ence what your occupation, or how you
want to use your money. It is the
way you ought to use it, for in time
the tenderfeet may "cuâs" you, too,
for the lack of hotel facilities and bad
weather.
In the meantime, however, the
storm will blow over, new railroads
will be built, more homes and hotels
will go up, the water and sewer sys
tems will be completed, the freight
question will solve Itself, and we will
all he happy again. Let us be thank
ful it is no worse, and try to cultivate
the spirit and fortitude of the pioneers
of Goldfield, and thus help in contrib
uting our part, to the making of the
greatest gold camp on the foot stool
of the Almighty.—Goldfield News.

•OME HO ME MAD E GHOSTS.
Those at an Engllah Seance Created
of Pink Stockinet.
Dramatic and startling accounts of
the exposure of a spiritualistic me
dium and hiB manager appear in the
current number of Light, the official
organ of spiritualists.
Dr. Wallace and Mr. John Lobb,
both ardent Spiritualists, are respon
sible for the exposure, and the cul
prits are Mr. Charles Eldred of Not
tingham and Mr. Elite, his manager,
whose "nefarious trickery" was laid
bare at a mèetirfg held on March 5
at the house of Mr. Ronald Brailey,
Baywater.
The week previously some interest
ing phenomena were said to have tak
en place which astonished most of
the sitters, one of whom was suspic
ious of the chair and cabinet used by
Mr. Eldred, the medium.
Subsequently Mr. Brailey examined
the chair, which had been left at his;
house, and found that it had a secret
compartment at the back, and also ai
keyhole deeply embedded and well
covered up by the plushette material.
He communicated with Mr. Lobb,
who had been one of the circle, and
Mr. Lobb communicated with Mr. Wal
lace. A key was made which opened
the lock, and a photograph was taken
showing the secret compartment,
which measured fifteen inches.
"We determined after this discovery
to put a stop at the next meeting to
any further fraud," Dr. Wallace says
in the course of his article.
"I was asked by Dr. Lobb( who had
to go out of town) to arrange a meth
od of trapping the culprits. Several
of the sitters at the approaching sit
ting on Monday were informed of the
discovery. I asked one or two good
Spiratulists to be present, and I knew
of a good clairvoyant who arranged
to assist.
"The seance having been opened in
the usual manner, a search of the med
ium was made and the chair was par
ticularly noted. It was found that the
stuffing of the back of the chair was
more pronounced, and the sensitive
referred to, Mr. Drew, on psychomet
rizing it, assured those present that it
contained some very suspicious ar
ticles which must have been placed
there just before the seance.
:
i
;
The key was used and the uphols
tered panel In the back of the chair
fell forward, the space being com
pletely packed with articles necessary
for faking 'spirit forms.'
"It was then found that the secret
recess contained a collapsible dummy
head, made of pink stockinet, with
stockinet gummed over the holes);
the loose stockinet was doubtless usel
to represent the shrunken skin at the
neck; six pieces of flte white China
silk, containing in all thirteen yards;
two pieces of fine black cloth i doubt
les used In the so-called dematerial
Izatlon); thre beards of various
shades; two wigs, one white and one
gray; and extending metal coat-hang
er for suspending drapery to represent
the second form, with an iron hook
on which to hang the form; a small
flash electric lamp with four yards
of wire with switch, which could be
used when the medium was away from
the cabinet to produce so-called spirit
lights within; a bottle of scent, pins,
etc.
"As soon as the members haa gone
into the seance room, I anticipating
any difficulty there might be in deal
ing with the culprits, entered the
house, accompanied by a sympathet
ic and most shrewd friend who is a
member of the public detective ser
vice, and entered the room just as
this discovery was made.
"When he was challenged about the
fraud, Mr. Eldred confessed his guilt,
and handed over the key of the secret
compartment.
"Instead of charging the two indi
viduals we tempered with merey our
sense of horror, disgust and Indigna
tion at such Infamous proceedings.
I requested the return of the money
taken, which I must say was prompt
ly done, and I confiscated the dum
my articles, which are now in the of
fice of Light for inspection.
"I hope this discovery will prevent
further attempts to prey upon the
most sacred feelings of their fellow
mortals, many of whom have hitherto
been their too unsuspecting dupes. '
Mr. Lobb states that this Is the sec
ond materialization medium he has
helped to expose within the past two
months. "When and where Is this
3ort of business to stop?" he asks.—

They are giving this dance to purchase these articles. You owe it to yourself as a citizen to help them out. You owe it to them
as{the owner of a home. Your property is in their keeping, and a Dollar and Fifty Cent investment will at some time possibly bring you
large returns. The cencus says that there are 3,000 population in our eity. That means that there should be at least ( counting one man
to every five of population) not less than SIX HUNDRED MEN in the town. If everyone of these six hundred men attend, it will net
them a snug sum. Every man, whether he has any property or not, should attend, That would make the record attendance in the city's
history. Possibly you disapprove of dancing. That is all the more reason that you should attend. Get all your friends together and pack
the hall so full that it will be impossible to dance, and stay there until daybreak to prevent it.
