mountains has been broken, and trains

been falling hard this afternoon, how
ever, it is possible that it will drift into

party which started Saturday night for
Truckee, but got caught in the drifts at
Lasconde cut, will reach here about 11

man's Financial Ability.

ing of the proposed sale of the Nevada
Bank, Senator Fair said today that as a
commercial bank there waß a gooi field
open for it here.
"It should have been done long ago,"
added he. "The inslitution is pros
perous, and if it enters more upon
commercial banking, as is proposed, it
cannot fail to do well. I bave
known Mr. Hellman for a long time and
I have a high opinion of his financial
abilities. He has acquired large wealth
in Southern California, where he has
been a banker for a great many
years. As I understand it, it was not
a question as to how much
money could be raised for the purchase
of tbe majority of the stock, but as tb
how many business men could be ac
cepted as stockholders under the new
management. A mrmber of men really
wanted more stock than it appears they
can get."
