There is not a billiard tAble in Ir-1
win. There is a good opening here :
for a billiard hall.

Our marshal, we heard a prisoner
say, is no reasoner, even if he does
sign himself “ Resoner.”
*e are are glad to see that the or-!
dinance relative to the building of
privies, is being generally observed.
# -
A gang of highwaymen, confidence
men and burglars are on their way here
from Beuna Vista. Look out for
them.
P. McDonald, of Reed, McDonald
fc Co., Leadville, formerly an old
Indiana newspaper man, was in camp
last week looking for a bonanza.
Holmes !z Co. have an eighteen
foot vein of quarts and an eight-inch
pay streak, in their Brittle Silver lode.
The ore is very fine looking and as
says sBo ounces.
The highest peak in this vicinity is
Mount Owens, situate about two miles
northwest from the town of Irwin,
which is 12,949 feet high, as deter
mined by Profs. Gannett and Peale,
of Hayden’s survey.
The last new paper we have re
ceived is the Elk Mountain Pilot,
published at Irwin, or Ruby Camp. It
is filled with local news, and will be a
great help to the town where it is pub
lished. — Alamosa Independent.
, Mr. Hnrding, of the mammoth
hardware house of Harding Bro’s, has
the cosiest and neatest residence
house in town. It is situated on
Tenth street, between Avenues E and
D, and is an ornament to that part of
the city.

The Elk Mountain Pilot, Lacey
& Phillips, editors and proprietors,
published at Irwin, Gunnison county,
is one of our latest exchanges. It is
a handsome sheet, and is brim full of
mining news. We gladly exchange.
— Georgetown Miner.
The business of our postoffice hav
ing increased so greatly M'essrs. Joyce,
Prentiss & Co. have been compelled
to dispose of their stock of merchan
dise to other parties, in order to give
their whole time and attention to the
rapidly increasing mail matter.
We would be pleased to publish
communications from all the camps in
the Gunnison country. The boys will
do us a favor by sending us mining or
other items. No matter how poorly
they may be written—all we want is
facts, and we will prepare them lor 1
publication.
Joyce, Prentiss & Co. have sold out
their entire stock of drugs to Messrs.
Deatherage Bro’s, third door from the
postoffice. They have also sold out
their stock of cigars, tobacco and
stationery to N. D. Malcom, who con
tinues business at the old stand in the
postoffice building.
■*- ♦
Ernest Southworth and Frank Du-
Montier, two enterprising and reliable
boys from Rosita, have established an
eating house (European plan), on the
southwest corner of Avenue E and
Tenth street,where they will be pleased
to see their friends. Mr. Southworth
has no superior, as a cook, in Colo
rado, and we wish him success here.
Our miners are getting down to
business and are developing- their
claims for all they are worth. Quite
a number are shipping ore, and
wagons leaving our camp, loaded with
the precious rock is a daily occur
rance. Next winter Irwin will have
more bonanza kings than any other

TAXAS JACK DEAD.
j Texas Jack, a well-known charac
-1 ter, died at Leadville two weeks ago.
! His real name was Omohundro, and
| during the war he made considerable
i reputation as a scout in the south
western states. About five years ago
he joined Buffalo Bill, traveling with
him and playing in his sensational
dramatic pieces. Previous to this he
married a well-known dancer, Mad-'
ame Morlacchi, who has in her day
been famous as a danseuse. About
two years since Buffalo Bill and Texas
Jack had some difference and sepa
rated, since which time he has been
traveling with his wife, Morlacchi,
playing the French Spy and a sensa
tional bofder drama. About two
months since they played an engage
ment at one of the variety theatres in
; Denver, since which time they have
j been peforming in Leadville.
| The postoffice has been made
| smaller by a partition. It seems pret
ty small to us, but if the postmaster
can stand it we can.
Evsry town of any consequence in
the Gunnison country has a newspa
per, and the crop promises an abund
ant yield of intelligence from this time
until the close of the season. Among
the latest is the Elk Mountain Pilot,
a most excellent medium. —lnter

Ocean.
A newspaper that will publish that
Indians are driving the prospectors off
the reservation, certainly can not
| have gained its information from the
men who have been there. We have
talked with at least twenty-five differ
ent parties who have .returned from
the reservation within the past two
weeks, and they all report not having
seen an Indian nor the sign of one.
There are no Indians within one hun
dred miles of us.
Messrs. Johnson & White, the own
ers of the Little Dude mine, produced
to-day some very fine samples of ore,
and will be ready in a few days to
commence sacking. Their mine is
located four miles from Crested
Butte. There is a good roacl, and
everything is in readiness to make the
mine a success. These gentlemen
were in this camp all last winter, and
we hope they will strike it rich and
reap a good harvest. They have sev
eral other mines which will turn out
exceedingly well.
