The fact that the Record should designate more clearly what company is meant when placed in its “much misunderstood” “insipid” list. i~ patent upon its face.

The editor of Tub News has done many dollars’ worth of work for the Record for which lie never asked nor received a cent, and largely as a result of which the Record now has its col umns crowded with advertisements of Goldfield companies. However when the request to do more is accompanied by labeled “sass,” he will surely re fuse to do so. There is a story going the rounds of the State press, saying that the Chinese and Japanese residents have Wen order ered out of Goldfield, the last to publish it being the Tonopah Bonanza. As there never were any Chinese or Japan ese. in Goldfield, it is utterly impossible for them to have been ordered out. In LeaiTvitle, ever since the founding of that camp, there has Wen an under standing that Chinese and Japanese would he a detriment to the best inter ests of the place, and they were not en couraged to come and locate. It is so in Goldfield, and Chinese and Japanese have studiously given it a wide berth. --: Thb Ishmaelite who runs a peanut roaster at Tonopah received a well-de served castigation at the hands of the Reno Journal last week, his unsavory past and contemptible present methods being shown up.

It is upon notoriety— unsavory though it be—that such ver min live. LIGHT SATURDAY NIGHT For the First Time Goldfield Will Be Lighted by Electricity. According to present arrangements Goldfield will on Saturday night shed a circle of illumination of a different hue than heretofore experienced. The Gold field Electric Light and Power company state through their manager that on the above mentioned night the juice will be turned on at the big power house located in the south end of town. The plant will have a capacity of 15, 000 candle jKiwer, but it is built so that another unit can lx; installed at any time when the service of tlie town war rants it to double the present capacity. 'Che engine lias a 14-foot wheel with a dynamo of L’.L'UU voltage. At the start, wood will be used to I generate steam for the boiler which w ill be shortly replaced by crude fuel oil. Nothing but 16-candle power incan descents globes have been placed in ser vice. Nearly every business place in town bus been wired and a good many of the private residences, ready to re ceive and transmit the rays as soon as the big switch is thrown into position. Nevada Title and Trust Co. George W. Richard, of the State Hank and Trust company, and T. A.

One <>f the first milling pi infs flint will lie in o| eration in Goldfield is now in course of «• st met ion near Kabliitt spring, sls'iit a mile west of tow n. A gang ot workmen are new excavat ing for the pi; nt slid it is tl.e ex|>ecta t ion of tic-sc connected with l In-enter prise to have the null in full u|ier*tion in nt six wieks' time. iyie company that will operate the hintiness is styled the Goldfield Reduc tion Works. Percy C. Gardner is man ager. The plant will lie installed with ten stainbut later on ten more will be added, us well as a cyanide plant. Tbe concentrating room is to lie 24x26 leet, equipped with four Frue vsnncrg. The boiler room w ill lie 28x21 feet while the balance of the mill is to lie 24x80 feet. The machinery that the company will use is that from a former mill lo cated at Garlield, twelve miles distant from Sodaville. All of the machinery is now at Toiiopah and will be shipped in daily consignments from now on. It has been thought by many that a mill in this section would exjierience trouble in obtaining water to run the plant w ith, but contrary to anticipations an sin pic water supply is obtainable in nearly every section. The. Goldfield Reduction Works lias a well of their own that lias a capacity of about 4,(HK) gallons daily and a contract has been made with the Goldfield Water com pany whereby a sufficiency of water is assured for the proper maintcnunc of the establishment. Around a point of Muff about a hall mile to the north of w here the Gold field Reduction Works are preparing lor tlie erection of a milling plant, work is being pushed for the construction of another milling establishment. This plant is being erected by Dean A Jones of Los Angeles, Gal. Neither of the above mentioned gentlemen are in Gold lield at the present time hilt workmen are breaking the ground for the laying of the foundation of the mill. This plant, while not to be constructed of entirely new machinery, is practically the same as one that would be equipped with material just out of the foundry. The mill was originally purchased by parties to be sent to South America. It is on the way to Goldfield now, being brought by teams overland from Gali forma, by way of Keeler, and is ex pected in different consignments, a portion of which is likuly to arrive here ’most any day. Messrs. Dean A Jones are figuring on building a plant so that any time in the future the mill can be increased to 1IMI stamps. A cyanide plant will also be run in connection with the establish ment. Plenty of water lias been secured fur the running of the mill, one 60-foot well alone having a daily capacity of several thousand gallons of water. It seems that some conflict has taken place over the right of Dean & Jones to commence work upon the ground that they did. It is alleged that parties claiming to represent the Goldfield Re duction works went to the workmen employed by Dean & Jones, and stated to them that their employers had no right to the ground they were working on and succeeded in persuading them to stop work. Word was sent to Mr. Dean with a result that the men went hack to work and will continue under liis direc tions. The ground was purchased by Mr. Dean from Ish and Winkler, and it is not expected that there will lie any further trouble along those lines. Mr. Dean is expected here from Cali fornia about the third of January, when it is expected that a larger force of men will be put to work to hurry the com pletion of the plant. J. II. Spiking and associates have plans well under way for the construc tion of a mill which will be well among the first of those ready for operation in Goldfield. The mill will be of five stamps and the process used will be amalgamation, concentration and an electric cyauiding process. Ill* rm: LI i ’ UlllUll^ JUillU Mill Ul* just outside tiie present town limits on the northwestern edge of (ioldlield. Two wolls have been sunk and a plenti ful water supply developed for all the purposes of the plant. The mill which Mr. Spiking and his associates are to build w ill be exclus ively for the working of custom ores. Mr. Spiking and associates have pur chased a mill in the southern part of the county and already one load of twelve tons of machinery lias been de livered here. The remainder of the plant will be here in about eight days and the construction of the plant will lie rushed to completion. It is ex pected that it will be in running order in about sixty days. Mr. Spiking has been in Goldfield since January and is thoroughly con versant with the various ores of the camp, of which he has made a close study. He is an energetic young man ami has acquired the habit of succeed ing in anything he undertakes and his latest venture, the milling project, will doubtless be no exception. Added to energy he lias a thorough practical know ledge of the milling business, hav ing operated plants with success in other parts of the country. Speaking of the probable milling charges for working the ores of the dis trict, Mr. Spiking said they would range from $t> to $14 per ton, based on the character of the ore to be treated. He said he would guarantee to work the ores up to 85 per cent of their value.

Pursuant to a resolution passed hy the San Francisco and Tonopah Mining Ex change, in an executive session, Satur day, December the 17ih, the following statement is given out for publication: No consolidation of the San Francisco and Tonopah Mining Exchange and the San Francisco Stock and Exchange Board has been effected, nor is such a move contemplated. When the public began to realize that Tonopah and vicinity was a great min ing region and that the stocks listed on the San Francisco and Tonopah Mining Exchange were good sate investments, the business of this hoard became quite lively. This excited the jealousy of tfie Comstock brokers, whose business was overshadowed amt cut into by the deal ing in the Tonopah and Goldneld stocks. The Comstock brokers first made a propositi' si to consolidate tiie t wo hoards, hut this did not meet with the approval of the Tonopah brokers, for several reasons, the principal one of w hich was the great difference in the nature of the securities dealt in on the two hoards. The Comstock shares are all assessa ble, and there are many mines on their list that have not been w orked for twenty years, and no one expects them to ever work again; in fact, the value of no stock on the Comstock list depends on the merit of the mine, but on the mati ipulation of the stock. In contrast to this assessment mill and stock manipu lation, the Tonopah stocks are non-as sessahle, and if the mine or prospect has no merit the stock has no value. In “plaoi English” the Comstocks are gambles and the Tonopahs are invest ments and legitimate speculations. When consolidation was refused, fif teen members of the Tonopah hoard de cided to join the Comstock exchange. After being elected mcmliersof the Coin stock exchange and trying to do busi ness unde:- the method followed hy the Comstock brokers, they asked that the Tonopah exchange take them hack in a body, and stated that their reason for wanting to come hack was that they were unable to do a legitimate business in Tonopah stocks under the methods pre vailing on the Coin-tock exchange. Seven of the Tonopah brokers, wno had paid $201) eaeli for their Heats on the Comstock hoard, were so glad to get hack into the Tonopah exchange that they willingly sacrificed their $1,400. The San Francisco and Tonopah Ex change has continued to do a good legit imate business in the stocks on its list at its board rooms in the Mills building, and will continue to do so. Notwithstanding the treachery of one or two former members of the Tonopah exchange and the jealousy of the Com stock brokers, the San Francisco and Tonopah Exchange has a larger and stronger membership than at any time in its history. It may he mentioned that the mem bers of the San Francisco and Tonopah Mining Exchange have reduced their rate of commission, which is now onk HALK OK ONK PKR CKNT Oil amount of transactions.
