Under the heading “Local News on Every Page.” the Reese River Reveille reproduces an item from The News and credits it to the “Goldfield Sun.’ Ihe Reveille is informed that at present The News is the only paper published in the Goldfield district, but there are rumors of something like a dozen more for the near future. The August number of the Sunset Magazine, which will soon be out, con tains a nicely illustrated article on Gold field. written l>y the editor of The News. As the illustrations in the Sunset are usually superb, it will make the hand somest and best advertisement the dis triot has yet had. The national democratic convention has made its nominations and Alton B. Parker, of New York, and Henry G. Da vis. of West Virginia, will oppose Theo dore Roosevelt, of New York, and Charles W. Fairbanks, of Indiana. Mr. Parker announces that he is in favor of the gold standard. The soliciting committee to raise funds for lire apparatus are now at work. Gold field is in urgent need of tire protection and tin1 committee should meet with the utmost encouragement in their laudable efforts for the public good. The Wells Ileral.l invites prosper... candidates for political office to make announcements through its columns at $10 per announce. "No $ll), no an nouncement,” is the frank way the Her ald puts it. The last issue of The Goldfield News was printed in red and blue and was a neat piece of work. Reese River Reveille. NEWS FROM HAWTHORNE (Special Correspomlenc.) The grand jury of Esmeralda comity was in attendance upon the District Court at Hawthorne on the 8tli of July. In the case of the State against W. .1 Kepler tiny found an indictment against the defendant charging him with an as sault with intent to kill In the case of the State against How ard Sharp the grand jury failed to return an indictment against the defendant. The suieties on the bail bond of Sharp were released and the defendant discharged. In view of the strong showing made against the defendant by the depositions taken at the preliminary examination and the six witnesses who testified before the grand jury, most of whom testified at tin* i preliminary examination, it was some thing of a surprise that the defendant was not indicted. It seems that the pre conceived opinions of the grand jurors as to the had character of the deceased was the controlling factor in the case, and even outweighed the sworn evidence. The grand jury, who did not even have the power to imprison the defendant, or place him in jeopardy of life or limb, in taking the matter entirely out of the hands of atrial jury, did not establish a precedent worthy to be followed. S. (’. As Enthusiastic as Any. As enthusiastic as any mining man who lias visited Goldfield, Nev. was Johu W. Langley, who returned from camp yes terday morning. He reports no fewer than seven mines now producing ore of excellent quality, the best evidence of the class of ore is that at the January, which has now been productive of over §200,0' 0, all of this since February 20th last. The management there is just now opening up the 200-foot level, and will begin r aising the milling ore which must be at the surface before the expiration of the lease. At the Combination Mr. Lang ley reports the metallic contents of the sulphides better than the free milling rock. On the Jumbo, he says, 12 leases are now in operation, eight of which are in ore, some of which is of most sensa tional quality. He also reports import ant strikes at Diamondfield. conspicuous among them those in the Daisy and Ver nal.—Salt Lake Tribune. A Popular Game. Now that apples are coming into mar ket the game of apples will soon become popular in Goldfield. This is the way it is played: A voting man calls on his girl bringing along a small apple. When he thinks it is time, he throws the apple up in the air. If it comes down, he kisses the girl. If it stays up, he does not. WHAT SMELTER MAN SAYS And Tet There Are Many Who Doabt and Doubt. Not only is Goldfield out of Tonopnh a most phenomenal camp, said Geo. E. Gnnn, field representative of the Ameri can Smelting and Refining company, on his return from there yesterday, but it presents many of the possibilities of a ('ripple Creek, and in another year should become one of the greatest sources of gold the country has ever known. It is already demonstrated to his satisfaction that the January and Combination are mines, making money for their owners as well as the lessees, while values in the Jumbo are nothing less than astonishing — some of the ore worth over plumper sack. Mr. Gunn, who rarely enthuses, confessed that on his visit to Goldfield sentiment had been forced to relax. —Salt Lake Tribune. RAILROAD COMING AT ONCE President John W. BrocK Is Author ity for the Statement. C. H. Elliott, the Touopali broker, re ceived a letter from Philadelphia this week in which the writer stated that John W. Brock, president of the Tono pah Railroad company and of the Tom) pah Mining company, had announced definitely that the railroad would be con tinned to Goldfield immediately upon its completion to Tonopnh. How is that for a seven months-old camp? Railroad to Goldfield. W. 8. Williams, the broker, made a bet of a fine suit of clothes with J. W. Briggs, of Tonopnh, that the Tonopnh railroad would be extended and trains running into Goldfield by January first next.
