Inside of six months Goldfield stocks that are now selling so cheaply will be at a premium and hard to secure except at a high figure. The Red Top stock has been the most active this week, several thousand shares having been sold to eastern parties who are purchasing heavily. The lessees are now down 50 feet and are crosscutting to strike the ledge. The company’s shaft is down 18 feet and still in ore. Goldfield Mining company’s stock has reached the $1.00 mark and not much of it to be had at that price. The enormous output for the number of men working and the length of time the lessees have worked have naturally caused this stock to rise. The W ater company received their re sevoir tanks a few days ago and are erect ing them on the summit of the hill. The system is becoming more complete every day, and will soon t e bringing in a good revenue. Tbe Vindicator Mining company are doing splendid development work on their group of claims and the stock hold ers of this company have cause to con gratulate themselves in having such men at the head. All the money received is going into the ground in actual develop ment. The stock holders can rest assur ed that their money is being expended iu the most economical manner and along lines of the most approved mining meth ods. The Combination ore at the bottom of the shaft is richer than ever and demoM strates conclusively that the ore increases in value with depth in Goldfield. This is good news and one that calls forth new vigor and encouragement to every claim holder. We desire to state that we were on the grouud before the town of Goldfield was in existence and we are prepared to give reliable information regarding the mines and mining properties throughout the entire district.

In the probings of the Texas officials, who have been in San Francisco investi gating the revenue and expenses of Wells, Fargo & Co., the fact was developes in a cross-examination that Wells,Fargo & Co in 1903 made a deal with the Southern Pacific Railroad Company by which it got a renewal for thirteen years of the ex clusive express privileges on the South ern Pacific lines. For this privilege the Express Company paid the railroad a bo nus of a million dollars, including $750, t) 0 of Express Company stock, and agreed to give it 40 per cent of its annn al gross earnings. The Texas authori ties are endeavoring to put into effect the new Railroad Commission tariff in that state reducing the rates of express com panies betweep 9 and 10 per cent.—Eu reka Sentinel.

The memory of some men seems to be so short that they forget they are honest. _ ♦ Many a man’s reputation for wisdom is hopelessly shattered after he opens his mouth.
