Mr. Rockefeller has been telling I of some of his early trials, but the Silver State says he did not tell ot some in which he managed to es cape justice. A poet whose offering was j turned down by the Silver State sends it back with a card, all to be published at advertising rates. This shows the fellow is not as cra/.y as the poem would indicate. Kick—kick like a bay steer—ii you don’t get The News regu larly. That is, of course, if you are a subscriber. In starting out, from various causes, papers are apt to miscarry, but, if notified, we will endeavor to find out where the mistake is and correct it. In entering a “general denial’’ that Claude M. Smith, our popu lar Recorder, was married, the ed itor of the Tonopah Miner uncon sciously (?J wrote that the report of the marriage was published in The Goldfield News. Of course he should have written that it was published in the news department of Goldfield happenings in the Miner. When the judge was passing sentence on Senator Burton for his flagrant abuse of his high office, he said, “Public office cannot be prostituted to personal ends.” This reminds the Reno Journal of a little boy who was fishing in the Truckee a few Sundays ago. A church member came along and said, “You can’t fish on Sunday ! ” “Yes, I can,” repli^*'. the urchin. “No, you ca"\inte id the C.

At a meeting held last Friday evening in the Miners’ Union hall j the initial steps looking towards a fitting celebration of the coming Fourth of July were taken. It was. the general sentiment of those present that,owing to delay in the delivery of material, the railroad could not be completed into Tono pah before the middle of July, and as there will be a big blowout on that occasion (in which Goldfield I will gladly join; it is believed that many of the residents of Tonopali 'will be pleased to have an oppor tunity to spend the Fourth in! pGoldfield. | i It is proposed to arrange a base [ball game between the Goldfield [and Tonopali teams —in which the latter is promised a good, sociable heating. It is further proposed to j have drilling contests, foot races, burro races and other sports and I amusements for young and old. In the evening the Miners’ Union will have a grand ball. M. M. Detch was chairman of; the meeting Friday night and W. L. McGonagill secretary. Another meeting will be held at the same jplace next Monday evening, at <S j (o’clock, to appoint committees and ; perfect arrangements. It is hoped that every business man and citi zen will be present on that occa-1 sion. Let us have a good celebra-j tion or none. Gardnerville lias a mail named Starke who advertises in rhyme, starting out with “ Gelit nach Ohten,” and winding up with "Wird da vermieden.” Where water is scarce—to say nothing of >eer—a man would go Starke, •taring mad if he had to read much w e I of that poetry. NLWS FROM HAWTHORNE (Special Correspondence.) I u *110 case of the Nevada Chief Min it. and Milling Company vs. Tinsley et al, inlge Murphy read an exhaustive and scholarly opinion in the District Court tit Hawthorne, ou the 23d of May. The decision was a lengthy one and dis cussed many interesting questions in the ' law of mines and water rights. Among the points discussed in the opinion were: The sufficiency of location certificates of lode and placer claims; ime and manner of marking boundaries; amended loca tion certificates; what constitutes a valid discovery in lode and placer claims; the ownership of springs situated within the limits of a hide or placer claim; and the rights of a subsequent lode locator to a ioile situated within the limits of a prior placer location. The Court decided that the location of a placer claim was an ap propriation of tlie waters of a spring sit uated within its boundaries, and that the locator of a lode claim within the limits of a prior placer location was limited to twenty-five feet ou each side of the ledge. The suit was brought to quiet the title to a placer claim and to enjoin defendants from preventing plaintiff from di> citing the waters of a spring situated ou the claim to its quartz mid. Judgment was rendered in favor of the plaintiff. The case of the State against Cedro Zavala came up lor trial in the District Court ou the 23d. The Court granted a motion for continuance on account of the illness of Laura Pegrossi, a witness for the State, and the case was set for trial ou the 11th day of June, 1904. J. A. Borland and F. M. Chipmau are working ten tons of ore from the “Auto mobile” mine in an arastra at Kinkend. It is claimed that some of this ore is worth $1,000 a sack. Some of the speci mens show large chunks of free gold. The claim has been abandoned for a number of years and was re-located by the present owners last Mai eh. The lucky owners will net a snug sum from this crushing. Tne tailings will be shipped to Selby after the free gold is ex tracted. _ The Consolidated Esmeralda Mines Company is working its mill in Haw thorne District steadily on ore from the La Pauto mine.
