Klliott has l»fn fully exoner ■G.ted of the charges of killing .lack Mad igan an<l assault with intent to kill Joe Hamilton, growing out of the deplorable ’shooting affray on the night of the 13th, and has been discharged from custody. The preliminary examination on tb** latter charge was held before Justice Col lins on Monday and Tuesday, the State l>eing represented bv IHstrict Attorney Green and the defense by S. K. Vermil •vea. The,testimony of a number of witnesses for the State was introduced.; none being offered by the defense. The evidence was in effect the same as tbi story of the shooting published in last week's Nt;ws,( showing that Klliott acted in self detense both in the killing of Madigan and the shooting of llami' ton. At the conclusion of the examination •Justice Collins dismissed the charge of assault with intent to kill and thereupon Mr. Vermilyea moved the dismissal of the murder charge also, which was done, Hu* District Attorney offering no objec tion. The case is such a.clear one that Klli ’ott was justified in snooting both men, that it is hardly probable tliat any fur tlier action in either case will be taken. TilK COUONKK’S INQKKST. The inquest into the matter of the ‘death of .lack Madigan, who was shot I and killed by \V. S. Klliott on the night i 'of the 13th instant, was held last Satnr-) day before Justice Collins. It had been j jsistpoiusl until that time pending the I Arrival of Distrh’t Attorney (ireen from i Hawthorne. The teslinVonV of a number of wit nesses to .the sliooting was taken, their j stories being in the main about the same I jis the published account of the affray in | Jast week’s News. The verdict of the jury completely exonerated Klliott from blame for the killing and was as follows: “In the matter of the inquisition up ton the body of Jack Madigan. “We, the Undersigned, the jurors sum hmned to appear before K. K. Collins-, the Coroner of the Town of Coldfield and County of Ksmerulda, at 2 p. m., on the 20th day of August, 1004, to inquire into the cause of the death of J. Madi gan, having been duly sworn according to law, and having made such inquisi tion, after inspecting the body, and hearing the testimony adduced, upon our oaths, each : ltd all\lo say, that we find the deceased was named Jack Mad igan. was a native of Pennsylvania, aged about 37 years, that he came to his death on the 13th day of August, 1004, in this County by a gun shot wound by the hand of W. S. Klliott, and we further timl that we belieVe W. S. Klliott to be the person tiv whose act the death of the said Jack Madigan was occasioned. And we, the undersigned jurors, do believe the said W. S. Klliott did the killing in self de fense and’therefore we. the jury, exon erate tin* said W. S. Klliott for the kill ing of Jack Madigan, deceased. W. G. Do AXE, Foreman; (’has. Marshall, Cuas.

Mr. Folirinan of Chicago, a private geologist ami correspondent of a tmin her of Kastern financial journals, is here for the purpose of making a thorough inspeetson of the district from the geo logical standpoint. The work on which lie is engaged will require several weeks ! and when completed the Xkws hopes to j he able to present to the pul die some of I the conclusions reached as the result of | his investigations. Mr. Kohrmati says I lie has so far seen nothing that would | cause other than the most favorable opinion of the district’s future. Jim Bntler in Town. Jim Butler, the father of Tonopah, ar rived from that place Tuesday evening in the automobile and was accompanied jiv T. L. Hoofer, of Carson, and Henry liougherty of Carson. The gentlemen came to examine the mines of the camp and are also looking after other enter prises. They expect to remain lice several days and before returning to their homes will spend several days at' Tonopah. Mr. Butler, who has considerable min ing property in this locality, is looking after his interests and is being heartily j greeted by his many friends. Offices Opened. The Goldfield Promotion Bureau, con- , ducted by Messrs. Johnstone. O’Brien' and Shaw, and the Tonopah-Gcldfield Trust company, AV. 1). Lawton, imina- j ger, have opened otiicea in the new building on Main street two doors north j of Thk Xkws office. Half of the build-' ing is occupied by Heslip & Jordan, as- j savers, who have ojiened up their estab- i lishment. They are spoken of as high- j class men in their line and are valuable' recruits to tin1 ranks of Goldfield’s en terprising business men. t A Great Showing. Just as a straw to show the extent of Goldfield's growth ond business activity it may he mentioned that since the first * of the month the |iapers in ninety-live transactions have oaseeil through the offieeofL.fi. Finnegan, notary public. These documents consisted of bonds for deeds, «iuitclaiin deeds and powers of attorney and none of them were for real, estate transactions. And this is only the business passing through the hands i of one of the three notaries in town. StriKe at Antelope. A German who lias been prospecting in the vicinity of Autelope Springs I brought in some rioli rock the first of the week. The news of a rich strike spread and a number of parties left in the evening for the sceue which is Hbout forty-five miles west of Goldfield. As none has returned the extent and rich ue-'S of the strike is unknown. Are Welcome Here. The Colorado boys, who have been ex iled from their homes, keen dropping in l,v twos and threes.

Prices ior real bstate are still snaring in Goldfield ami they are bonntl tn go higher as the camp developed. A town lot on Main stiVet is now worth ns much ns a fairly good mine and (or leases on ground in this street In the central part of town ns high as $4 per front foot per month is being paid. Transactions are t>eing made so rap idly that there is hi) way of keeping roc ord of them. They are bought and per haps sold again within a few hours at a sharp advance, and then resold to Someone who is willing and anxious to pay the fancy prices demanded. the top notch figures are of course for business locations, but the sales of what is destined to become the residence sec tion keeps pace. People are buying lots on which to build homes and as soon as the lumber scarcity is over there will be a building boom such as has never be fore been witnessed anywhere. Already there ate at a mild estimate at least a hundred houses, adobe or frame, in var ious stages of Construction, this not in cluding the business buildings on which work is begun or nearing completion. H jirtb of the m >re imp irtaitt red es tate deals of the week are given below, it being impossible to give mention of the mnhy others which have been made. H. H. Abidee purchased from the (it Id field Townsite Company live lots, four of which are corner lots at the in tersection of Crook and Columbia ave nues. On the north-east corner of this intersection he will build a fine two story building for office purposes. Archie l.uw ntugne and Frank Maud lin have leased a j£> foot lot on Ramsey and First streets on which they will erift a large bakery. C. \V. Stewart has leased an adjoining lot and will build a Cabinet working shop. Sleinheimer A Titmeher have leased a .TO foot front on Main Street next to the (•didfield meat-market. They will put tip a IKlxlOO furniture store. Ingalls A Crook have purchased a cor ner lot on Crook ami Columbia avenues, the considerafion it is said being twelve hundred dollars. $450 IN BAD CHECKS Reno Newspaper Man Does Fraudulent Pen Work. He came to write tip the camp, fell victim to the seductive wiles of the tiger and departed leaving $4">0 worth of had checks behind him. This was in brief the Goldfield experi ence of \V. W. Kersbner, a representa tive of a Reno publication known as Ne vada Mines. Kersbner was in town several days and on Friday night es sayed to dally with the tiger. He lost what money he had, but the spiiit of play was strong within him and be commenced writing checks to secure more funds. They were cashed to the amount of $4.’>0 in the two houses in which he played. The money passed from his to the dealers’ bands and he was soon broke again. Kersbner left town on next morning’s stage and the holders of the chocks, be coming suspicious, telegraphed to the Washoe I'ountv Rank of Reno, on which they were drawn,and found that the pa per which they held was worthless, Kersbner having no funds on deposit. The sheriff was notified and took Kersbner in custody on his arrival in Reno. Things looked bad for him and arrangements were made for Constable O’Toole to go to Reno and bring Kersb ner back for trial. But it appears that lie is connected with the Reno Gazette and an arrangement was made by which the note of that pajier was accepted for the amount of Kershner’s bad checks and he was released. When be comes again to Goldfield he will probably s eer clear of the tiger’s lair. Skipped Out—Left Debts. E. A. Wall, who did a couple of weeks' thriving business running the lunch ■«uliter at the Palace corner, sold out the place to his partner and skipped out last Saturday. But before doing so he made it a point to get in debt to as many (ample as (mssible and when his various creditors ligured up their ac counts they found that Wall had suc ceeded in buncoing them to the extent .f IttlU). Constable O’Toole was notified and -ent word to Tonopah and Sodaville and Wall was arrested at the latter (dace. He was to have been brought back to inswer to an embezzlement charge hut :fter some delay Wall came to the con clusion that it was better to pungle them :o be brought into court and so dis gorged the money necessary to square ip accounts. This satisfied the credit irs and he was allowed to proceed on lis way, looking for a new and more irotitable field for swindling operations. Prominent Man's Sudden Death. W. W. Morris, a banker of Pony, Montana, and pioneer mining man of Fonoiiah, was stricken with heart dis ease, while ins|>ecting the East Chance mine at Reveille, Sunday evening. Death was instantaneous ami with no warning. He left last week for Tono pah, and left there to inspect his mine, lie was accompanied by his son and seven other companions when stricken, and the grief-stricken 1'iiends brought the body to Tonopah at once. It was embalmed there and shipped to Mon tana, Wednesday, for burial. Killed in Tonopah Mine. J. 11. Danbacker lost his life Mon lay by falling 400 feet in the Halifax mine in Tonopah. At about 3 p. m. he was coming up from a drift a short distance above the water level, in company with Foreman Malloy and another man. When near the top lie grew faint, and in spite of his companions’ endeavor to hold him fell from the cage. The water was 140 feet deep and the body was not recovered till !* p. in., being in a terribly mangled condition, lie was a widower, 45 years of age. Announcement. TheJumlto Extension Mining Com pany will after Sept. 1st. place a limited amount of its stock on the Market at twenty cents per share, and the Vernal Mining Company of Uoldlield v.ill dis pose of a small block at 15 cents pcr share. VELVET AND JUMBO TWIN SENSATIONS Product of the Bowes-If ernich Lease is Estimated at Near the Million MarK—Marvelous Ore is Being Extracted. Jam bo. The Snwes-Kernick lease, No. s, ori the Jumbo still holds the center of the stage ns the banner producer of the camp. Ore is heihg taken out of such <iuality and in such ipiantity a? to throw the richest leases on the Mi/.pah in tin' shade. As stated last week the ledge was cut by the 500 level crosscut and ii proves to be feet wide and all shipping ore. About fifty miners are at work and lire is being exthieted on all font levels. Winzes arc being sunk and up raises maid on all the levels. It is estimated that over $500,000 worth of ore is now blocked out on this lease. Those in a position to know even go so far as to predict that it will pro duce $1,000,000 by the close of the leas ing period, < letober !>lst. About 5,500 sacks of ore are now piled up awaiting shipment and the ore is be1 ing sent out as rapidly as possible. One assay from the 50 foot level this week went $5,540. Reliable estimates place the daily pro duction of one lease at $10,000 daily and of all Jumbo leases at $15,000. On the Richard & Co. lease No, 0 a hoist is being installed and the fortunate owners are bound to get the rich ore shoot which is blocked out down to the 500 level in the adjoining Rowes-Ker niek lease. On the No. 11. Vermilyea it i’artlett’s | lease, an upraise from the 100 level is being made and the ore shoot is about 18 inches wide. Seventeen tons of ore were shipped this week and the lease holds as one of the best on the Jumbo. A gasoline hoist is being put in place on the Fuller and McDonald lease and will be readv for operatsons in a few days. On the Zinn lease a depth < f 100 feet has been obtained and a drift at that point has been started. A latest im proved gasoline hoist was recently in stalled and is giving good satisfaction. The Velvet. No richer strike lias been made in the camp than that in the Rider, Ricker A: Taylor lease on the Velvet. It is the; sensation of the camp and lias possihdi ties which at this writing apja'ar limit less. Following the rich surface strike, the ledge has now been uncovered for about III) feet and the richest shoot shows about K feet wide. Already I Oil sacks of ore have been taken out, with only two and a half days work. This ore is worth at least $1,000 a ton. Assays which have been made run up to $10,000 a ton. From the top of the ground, in a space about 40x50 feet, about 125 tons of loose dirt were shoveled up. It will assay about $55 a ton. All the indications are favorable that the Velvet will hold out with depth and that it will become one of the biggest mines of the camp. January. Three shifts of miners are at work on ; the January and ties old reliable pro-j ducer is maintaining its steady output, j About 12 tons of s hipping and 25 tons of milling ore are being taken out daily. A shipment of 1H tons was made last night and there is plenty more on hand. A contract has been let to sink the, new shaft 100 feet. It is now down 112 j feet. All the workings of the January are in ore and only shipping and milling stuff is being taken out. F.nough ore is tid'.V in sijilit to cover tin- working period of tin- louse. Combination. The Cani|i's ol lest mine maintain-' its steady output ■ f shi|iping or*' and re ports are that the ore bodies in the lower workings are holding in extent and val ues. The Florence. On the Florence lease No. good shipping ore is being taken out steadily. A shipment was sent out last week from which the returns have not yet been re ceived, hut it is expected to sustain the record for this great property. Piamoacilicld £trii(e. A strike was made this week on the Daisy at Diumnndticld in the Welch j lease. The ledge lias been opened tip it three different places add shows about t> feet of good ore. Panning* show that the rock runs well up in the thousands and it contains plenty of visible gold. No assays have, yet been made but then is already enough in sight to satisfy tin owners and others who have inspected the property that they have one of tin best things in the 1 >iamondl:eld section. The !v2s. Mnrtaand Wilson are erecting a large whim on the .losliua lease on the St. Ives. They have a ledge eight to lifted; inches wide of high grade ore and ex pect to put on a force of men at once. The Si’ver Pitlb Three leases are now n|icrnting on tie Silver l’iek group, .bulge 1£. It. Collins having one and <i. A. Whit ford tin other two. They are going ahead will active development work and are confi dent that they will soon have something good in sight. The Red Top. A now strike, which has given the [stock nf this company ;in upwind ten dency and can es it to he classed a good huv was made yesterday. The striki was made at a point ah ait the center of the claim and the ore is richer than any that previous prospecting has shown. Assays from near the surface arc said to run up to $t<n. Tiie A'.gite. The shaft 01 the Smith, Sanders and j Fuller lease is down eighteen feet and the ore is showing fair values. A shaft is being sunk on the Sanders j lease on the Algae and is down twenty- j five fed. Blacii Ant Mines Co. The sinking on the May ('. group of, the Black Ant Mines Co., lying near the Vernal No. If has heen resumed, work having hci n delayed on account of ina bility to obtain mining timbers. The work on their Indt p.-nbonec group lying between the .I umbo and the Vernal No. if mines is progics. ing rapidly. Consid erable surface work has heen done and three promising ledges opened. Mana ger Weber has started to work upon and develop two of tl.esc leads. At a depth of AO feet a crosscut of about 40 feet will he run to encounter the third vein. The Goldfield-Tonopah. The (ioldfield-Tonopah Mining Com pany is sinking with one shift on the Cloudy l>av. They are down Iff feet and the bottom of the shaft is all ledge matter which assays as high as $10 in gold. This group con Nts of three claims near Diamondlield. They join j the Cain and McMann property on the I west which was recently bonded for $100,000, with $10,(XH) cash payment. They also join the Red Huttos on the' north which was als > b »n led last week for $40,00(1 with a I ,rge cash payment. ; There are numerous ledges cropping on this ground and all assay in gold. The shaft is now punt! down at the rate of three feet per day, and it is the inten tion of the eompatty to sink fifty feet and then emsseut both north and south to out led ties whieh are only a few feet from them. Jumbo Extension. The Jumbo Extension Mininjr Com pany has leased to.l, 1!. Martin the Dick l'dand Fraction, hounded by theSt. Ives. Alliae, and I'olovenle mining claims. The lessee exjMU'ts finding good pan- ; ning before seem ini' the lease, The l’oloverde, one of the Jumbo Ex tension claims, is makin;; a strong bill j for hijih favors, and seems quite likely to soon run the Velvet claim, whieh it i surrounds on the West, a close second. Mr. Sehwebel, one < f the les. ees. hits crosscut what seems to be the sensa tional rich Velvet ledge. I’p to tbit writing very high values have not been encountered, although good pannings are of frequent occurrence. Schwi bel. Ilarwood,(iarrett and others have taken two leases on this claim, imined atcly west of and on the ei.vet trend of tin Velvet ledge. The Company reserves 1, i'si If the tot I feet of the south end of tin property adjoining the St. Ives. Black Butts-Coldfield. \ new tunnel has b eti started on thi property of the black Hutto-tiold el Mining Company on the north side ot the bill, which will cut the vein k’00 f < t lower than the oi l tunnel. Three shifts are at work, and it probable that an air compressor and power drills w.U hi utilized in a shott time. In the north drift from theupper tun nel the vein has been fell >wi d fora dis tance of forty ft.pt, but no crosscut has been run run to ascertain the width of; the vein. The ore shows average assays which are very encouraging. Notes of the Hines. ('cm. C. <1. Noble hastaken a sub-least iVian Price & Currie. II.
