J^^^tf^ Piasio Buying M
The name "Chickering" linked to Curtaz pn
is the highest guarantee of piano satisfaction. Kga
f* You buy a piano for a lifetime. Yet even "many rjffl
g * high-priced pianos fail to hold their tone beyond a ral
f\Jj few years. Why experiment? -> x-.
:**-\ The Chickering pianos are the oldest W^K
in America. They are universally acknowl- hg
|^ edged the standard of musical excellence. g^
ms* Their supremacy is best seen in the Chick- 1O
|ml| ering Quarter Grand — the first and now the ray
only perfect small grand. They need no Ff|
lyjj testimonials — no "inducements" — no flaring [gm
L H sales — the reputation of the house of Chick- * gpS
Jme|| ering, extending over eighty-four years, is ||g|
Hl^i the highest possible testimonial — the best j|rj
||LJ guarantee of piano merit. r^jS
K^J Then \'ou have the additional security that comes OS
IJ|| from dealing with the house of Curtaz, that for over I WTj
fifty years has stood for honest, straightforward piano . K^

West; End of TonopaH Says
* MacNamara ; Tools ,$250,
000; From Former ? s Lodes
TOXOPAH,^ Xev.,7 Dec" 19.— A sensa
tion was caused here today byithe'fllf
Irig of ; a suit In : the ; District '^Cburtlby
which the West' End Consolidated-Min
ing Company seeks- to; recover; s2so,ooo
said to have^beeril-wrongf ullyj taken
from its lodes by the MacNamara Min
ing Company, the property, of % which
adjolnts the West ' End ground.
The complaint, which was drawn ' up
by Attorney J. P.- O'Brien, | acting . for
the Consolidated ' Company;' sets ] forth
that f or _ : a period of \ three years the
MacNamara Company, byVmeans fof tits
underground . workings, has .been : . tak—
ing out ore from the . veins and \ lodes
which lie wholly within the limits of
the West End Coiripany's grounds, and
that, : asj closely as can be figured, the
value extracted-- from* ' the • ore ' .was
$250,000. , ; : .;•; .w ; «'- : - ; . .":'>"' "..•\u25a0,; \u25a0;\u25a0\u25a0;\u25a0." ,
The complaint states -further that 'the
defendant believes that the MacNamara
Company is at this time working veins
of ore within*- West\ End r ground with
out consent of the plaintiff.' ' An : in
junction is asked to; stop such I work
until the case shall come to trial and
a further injunction -to prevent, the
MacNamara Company from . shipping" or
treating the ore that is in its bins.;'; .
~ Both the temporary Injunctions lwere
issued by Judge Peter \u25a0 Breen ; today. -
The West Knd Consolidated.property
is controlled .by Borax Smith, , while,
the MacNamara was -but 'recently
wrested from his control and is said to
be dominated by*: the Wingfield-Nixon
crow-d. The two properties are -con
nected by drifts and the ore binsjfisesl
by the' West End are<on theSiacNa
mara ground.- This arrangement- was
made while the MacNamara' was "prac
tically controlled by Smith and the ore
taken out in the West End', Is taken to
the surface through the JttacNamara
shaft. It was the aim ,'cP -the Smith
faction to consolidate the; two proper
ties, the accomplishment of *that design
being hindered by the minority stock
holders of the MacNamara, who .were
not satisfied with the stock
The present suit is beyond 'doubt an
attempt on the part of the Smith fac
tion to force some sort of a: compro
mise from the present control -of the
MacNamara. Both mines; have long
i been ranked among the good producers
jof the camp. • ;.. : ,^.t' ?
By a decision handed down . yester
day by United States: Supervising In
spector Captain John ' Bermingham,
Captain \V. P. S. Porter was deprived
! of his license as master ,and pilot I for
the period of six months. from Novem
ber 19. 1906. for unskillfulness in navi
gating the Pacific Mail Steamship Com
pany's Mongolia on September -15,' when
she stranded on a coral reef. at Midway
j Island.'- The six months' suspension, by
United States Local Inspectors S Bolles
and Bulger of -the: license- of ' Andrew,
Martin/- chief mate,? was- reversed 7arid
Martin's license restored to him. ,~ v
Captain Porter :. had 'shunted -the
blame for. the accident bnMartin.v al
leging that he was; unskilled with; the
patent sounding; machine. 1 Inspector
Bolles had reported in favor of < sus
pending for six months the licenses of
Captain Porter, and^ Mate Martin.' In
spector Bulger's report exonerated Cap
j tain Porter, bufagreed as to the sus
pension of ' Martin. : ' -
The following: are extracts from
Captain Bermingham's decision :
Martin testified that he advised Captain Por
t"T after. tb? licit was sighted to take two and
four point bearincß of it and find out the ship's
exact distance j therefrom. Captain [ Porter did
not follow the advice; nor did lie obtain any
cross be&rintrs of .the lijrht at all that eight, al
though he testified that no one could tell Its
distance \u25a0 from the ahSp 'by looklne at It.
"At fi:o6 p. m..the engines were Rtopped. Tap
tain Porter unqn fs t ioaa bl .v :' lat ended to go *no

Cited that a boat was approaching, and : in an
unmar<3«'d moment, at 9:IS p. m., he rang half
speed ahead. According *to the testimony *©f
Chief Engineer Chisholm, .this meant fifty revo

lac ahont twenty-six feet of , water, nearer the
l'land in order -to relieve the approachlnp-boat
of a lone poll. 'He' admits that the ship was a
mile ahead of hi* reckoning — a fatal mile.- - "
\u25a0 waen he failed to receive the expected Konnd
lnen from Martin he ordered . Second Officer Ca
6IH to pet the hand lead ready, at. the same time
Btatinc that he had no confidence in Martin. ; Yet
he kept Uie sbip coin? without ordA-lns a cast
of the hand lead.. That was. the. time when
Captain Porter Rbnuld have stopped and reversed
his enpines. brocrtt Ms ship to a dead stop and
