On Thanksgiving morning at 7:110 o'clock a gloom was cast over our populace, by the announcement that AnthonyJDunn, or "Tony" Dunn, had been killed in the Cutting & llrown shaft. From the facts evinced at the Cor oner's jury it appears that the shift had descended the ladder and on reaching the 10(1 level had stepped from the ladder and gone to their respective places of work. Tony Dunn and his partner who were work ing in the bottom of the shaft, 60 feet bekiw the WO-level, had gone into the drift at this level for candles and re turned to the shaft to auain tako the ladder to the bottom. Dunn was ahead of his partner and was about twenty feet below the level when his com panion emerged from the drift he saw the bucket rapidly descending the ladder which is used for the track upon which it runs. Dunn's partner grabbed the bell cord and gave a stop bell, but the rapid motion of the bucket and the short distance it had to travel before overtaking Dunn it was impossible for the top man to stop the tub. The rim of the buck et struck poor Tony Dunn on the left sidj of the head cracking the skull wide open and forcing the brains from the cavity. After the blow the unfortunate! fell backwards and to t he bottom of the shaft. The Coroner's jury care fully ascer taining all the facts rendered the fol lowing verdict: e, tho undersigned, the jurors snmmoned to appear before Clay Peters, Justice of the Peace and ex oflicio Coroner of Tonojioh Tow nship, Nye County, Nevada, on the 12Hth day of November, l'.MII. to inquire into the death of A-JxThum, having been dulv sworn according to law, and having made such inquisition, after inspecting the body and hearing the testimony adduced, upon our oaths each and all do say, that we find the deceased was named A.J. Dunn, that he came to his death on the 28th day of November, 1IM11, 'through accident, which accident we believe was largely due to the fact that the rules and regulations governing the operation of the lease in which the accident oc curred were insuflicient for the safety of the men working therein. All of which we duly certify by this inquisition, in writing, by us signed, this twenty-eight day of November, IMll, J. N. Cole, J. D. MeMahon, H. Uamsey, E. V. Sales, W. A. Powers, S. S. Carothers. The deceased had followed mining for the past 4(1 years in this State and California, and was greatly es temed for his jovial disposition and his honorable traits through life. He was a friend to everybody and had no enemies, was a native of Ir- laud and iW years of age. The funeral was held from Miners, Exchange Hall, under the auspices of Tunopah Miners' Union of which de ceased was a, member, Kev. James M. Hutler olliciating. The funeral cortege was the largest ever seen in Tonoiiah. there lieinir 4IHI miners in line and over fifty persons in car nuges. The members of the Porter-Charles Company rendered beautiful hymns at the hall and the grave. The Delta Opening.

And Icaven of Tonopah's prosperity is spreading over the adjoining country to such an extent that long forgotten and overlooked mines are being re juvenated, brought to the front and their merits exploited. An instance of this nature is the Lilierty mine and adjoining pros pects, situated about 12 miles north of Touopah. Mr. Butler, the dis doverer of Tonopah has said that it was the knowledge of the former richness of the Liberty ores and the extensive production of the camp which led him to seek an extension of the Liberty formation and ledges to south and which resulted in tlte dis covery of Tonopah. Certain, it is that the old mine has yielded a large amount of the pre cious metals, both gold and silver, the exact amount being ditlicult todeter mine, but estimated in the neighbor hood of one million dollars. The fact that the principal value of the ore was in silver was what led to the closing up of the mine with the de preciation of that metal. The remains of old machinery, hoisting works, etc., on the ground to gether with the 700 foot shaft, the irreat drifts and stones connect ed therewith, and the large dumps, ail bear eloquent testimony to the past productiveness. The county in the vicinity of the old mines is well mineralized and at tractive to the prospectors. A mile to the north is a mountain composed entirely of quartz, The formation of the country is lime and porphyry, with numerous ledaos more or less well defined. There is quite a little work being doue in the camp at the present m the way of development. Harris and Lambert some time ago relocat ed the old Liberty mine, which is said to contain pillars of ore in the old cropings which carry values as high as $400 per ton. They have bonded their property to Colorado parties, represented by Mr. Ish, for a good figure. L. A. G reen and Clay Peters own the extension of the Lilierty mine, upon which ledges containing ore carrying values as high as til!) per ton have been opened up by prospect work. Phillips and Maunder have a tine looking prospect in the near vi cinity, which yields ore carrying high values in gold, silver and copper. Liberty is an adjunct to Tonopah, and its development into a producer means added prosperity to the camp. The facilities are good for the work ing of the ore, both wood and water being close at hand in sufficient quantity. , . . Tho extension of thu railroad from Austin down the Smoky Valley is all that is needed to bring the old camp to the front again. j To The People of Tonopah. ? j We extend our thanks for the liberal patronage given us since we ttirew open our dtxirs.
