UNJUST
TUIS TAX
No Personal Property

New York Feb 11In spIte of
the futility and weakness of the per

of 1000 tho solo support of a widow

J to bo permitted for a day in a so

COST OF MAKING THE
TRIP TO JARBIDGE
A letter giving some Interesting in
formation on conditions nt the new
camp of Jarbldgc in the northern
part of Nevada has just been re
ceived in Goldfield from Teddy Gay
who is well known In Goldfield and
whd left here some time ago with
other Goldfleldltes to to their for
tunes at Jarbidge Tho letter says
In part
We are all settled down to camp
life Rummer Dtigan and myself Jar
bldgo creek runs right through the
town so we havo plenty of water
and timber is also very plentiful
The ranchers bring in fresh killed
beef and sell It for 11 cents a pound
They were selling it for 812 but they
have been raising tho price for about
six weeks
I would estimate about 175 people
In camp that is up and down lie
creek for a distance of about five I
miles The district looks cry good
and there seems to be no limit to the
mineral area No one should think of
coming in without being thoroughly
equipped with tent blankets provi
sions etc
etcLittle
Little Snow in Town
Values have been found for a dis
tance of ten miles or more along the
creek Quito a bit of snow on the
mountains but very little right In
town I will give you correct duta
regarding prices and tho way to get
hero Railroad fare from Goldfield
to Buhl Idaho 3920 stage from
Buhl to Three Creek 60 mlle fare
5 and 4 cents a pound for baggage
etc Three Creek to the Island or
Hot Springs fare 250 and f12 cents
per pound for luggage 12 miles
from Hot Springs to Jarbldgo 13 to
1C miles you have to pack In and the
packers charge 5 cents a pound You
have to walk in from Hot Springs or
sometimes you are ablo to get a sad
dle horse belonging to some packing
outfit and ride In for S C
So you see a man must figure on
about 1112 cents a pound on all stuff
he brings in from Buhl A man can
buy his tent blanket cooking uten
sils and stove at Buhl and then got
his provisions at Three Creek It Is
a pretty hard trip getting here but
after you arrive it is very pleasant
We were very fortunate in coming
through without any delays leaving
Goldlleld Sunday morning we arrived
hero Friday afternoon Wo had to
wait only half a day at Hot Springs
to get packed in
The day we came In from the
Springs another party came which
had been waiting twelve days to be
packed in hut the packers arc pretty
well caught up now I would Judge
thero ore about > C3 or 70 horses used
in packing here now There has been
but little work done hero yet the snow
being so deep In the mountains This
spring thero will probably be quite
II a few come In via Death Wells or
Elko The distance will probably be
about 90 or 100 mile
There Is mull service once a week
in here now Stage service from Buhl
to Three Creek triwcekly Mondays
Wednesdays and Saturdays

pose of filing with tho county recorder
tho tovMialto of Howell which has

The towusite has been laid off Just I
east of the canal running through the I

The streets run at right angles
through tho town Jut tho town itself i
is not surveyed in a square hut more i
after the style of a rightangled tri
angle I
Those who are familiar with the I
country out In that section will re
member that the Promontory Stock
company piped the water from some
springs in the hills east of the farm
buildings a distance of about three
miles to tho ranch houses and the
reservoir will bo located within tho
borders of Howell as it has been sur
veyed so that the town will bo sup
plied with clear cool fresh drinking j
water while the canal water can bo
used for irrigation and stock
Tho location of Howell is ideal for
that part of the country being on a
gentle slope to the west the soil be
Ing of gravely nature similar to the
soil of Brigham City and the city
will receive the benefit of the rays
of tho sun all winter as there Js a
big hill to the north which will re
flect the warm rays brightening up I
the whole valley and making it a
pleasant place of abode The town It I

MEN BLAMED
They Are Held Respon
sible for the Graft
in This Country
Chicago Feb 17Business men of
this country are chlolly to blame for
the political graft and corruption so
widespread throughout the nation
tald Julius Henry Cohen lawyer of
New York In an address before the
memlxMc of tho Chicago Cicditmcns
association at their annual banquet
last night His subject was Business
and Politics
Wo hear a great deal about the
grafting legislator and the brlbotak
lug public officials In thoaodays said
Cohen but gentlemen I want to ask
you who makes this graft possible and
who offers those bribes We have in
Chicago and New York two specific In
I stances
In my own city wo havo a legisla
tive scandal in which a member tit
the legislature is accused of accept
ing 1000 an a bribe for his vote < My
friends bridge companies are not run
by legislators they arc managed
business men While wo have grown
commercially powerful arc we becom
ing morally great I think not and
tho chief reason why wo are not la
that the very men to whom belongs
I the chief credit for our tremendous
prosperity are the men who exercise
the most malign Influence over our

Union Pacific Made No
Attempt to Open
Portland Gate
New York Feb iIn the conlirm
aiton of tho hearings of the govern
ments suit to dissolve the Union Pa
cific merger today John A Munroc
general freight manager of tho com
pany was questioned by II N Loomis
of counsel for tho defendants with re
spect to the practicability of the
Union Pacific moving traffic through
the Portland gateway to San Fran
cisco
The Union Pacific officials said
Mr Munroe from time to time have
diseased the proposition of opening
the Portland gateway to San Fran
cisco but they have always came to
the conclusion that it was imprac
ticable and would be unprofitable to
the Union Pacific
In the first place Portland was
the same distance from Omaha as was
San Francisco and tho question of de
lay in transferring freight and mak
ing connections with the boats was
considered There was only the San
Francisco Lusiucss to be secured by
this means as it was determined that
Sacramento and Stockton promised to
business for such a route
Another thing that had to be con
sidered was the attitude of the South
ern Pacific which had connections to
San Francisco Such a movo ou the
part of the Union Pacific would bo
considered hostile by the Southern Pa
cific and it could and would retaliate
by deflecting from the Union Pacific
that which the Union Pacific could not
get except through time influence of
the Southern Pacific
