TOXOl'AH AS A FIKM FOR THU INVICSTOU. Every, resident of Nevada, both old und new, is thoroughly familiar with) the conditions that will make better times in the Sagebrush State. Nor is it necessary to enlighten them as to the causes of the general de pression that has settled for years upon Nevada. We might say that the shyloek policy of the Southern Pacific rail road company had much to do with retarding our agricultural, stock and mining interests. It has. Again, we will concur in the statement that stock gambling and wild-cat mining schemes have hindered our growth. What of it? Has California, Idaho, Montana or the banner state of Colo rado, as well as the lesser mineral producing State" been free from stock-jobbing and wild-cat mining propositions? Verily no! And no new mining section will ever be en tirely free from such unwholesome conditions. The small operator is prompted to try his luck at floating unsafe securities by the example set forth by the kings of commerce. While we will use our every effort to expose what we know to be bad investments for capital, we desire also to offer a word in time for the invitation of capital to our rapidly developing mining section. And why should we not set forth in fairly allur ing terms the immediate outlook of Tonopah? The mineral belt of our district is extensive. The develop ment work has been confined to a comparatively small area. And what of the showing? Let us put one question to the "croaker" about Tonopah and her possibilities. What would have been the result if the Mizpah lode had been discovered in Colorado or Utah or Montana? If he cannot answer, let us. Thirty thousand people resi dents of the town, water works, electric lights, mills, btnelters and railroads, and the means would jus tify the ends. And also will the means justify the ends in the final upbuilding of a great mining center in Tonopah. Now let conservative capital but come and buy up the many good and cheap close-in properties lying idle almost within a stone's throw of the famous ore producers and expend a few thousand dollars in their devel opment, and Tonopah's name like that of "Abou Ben ad Lem" will head all the rest. And there is no time like the pres ent, for values will surely ascend. No mining camp in the history of mining ever offered so many choice properties for small money. Cripple Creek in her initiative stage was a pigmy in mineral showing as com pared to Tonopah. . A short summary of the work be ing carried on at present is as follows: The Salt Lake people on the south und. east of the Mizpah, the Fraction Company on the south and west, the West End Company and their neigh bors, the Tonopah Consolidated Com pany, on the west, the Ohio-Tonopah along the same western line, and the Mizpah Extension on the north and the Halifax Company on the east. In each instance the work is being pushed rapidly, and with the encoun tering of ore, which is absolutely as sured in nearly every case, a wave of prosperity will come , into our midst that will redound to our particular credit and the general upbuilding of the entire State. ' We put ourselves on record (and we are not boosting mining schemes) to prove to every conservative cap italist who will visit our camp and look over the field, to show him bet ter investments for a small sum of money than can be found in any other mineral section on earth. The min eral ground is here. It only awaits capital to develop it and uncover the ledges. The annual production of the entire Mother lode of California will fall far short of that of the Tonopah mines when they are opened up and the ores are reduced here, and all this will occur inside of twelve months. ni:vaia. The following is taken from the Butte Times of March 211th: The. editor of this newspaper has been on an extended tour of investi gation among the mines of Nevada the last four weeks, and having just returned, says as briefly as space w ill permit that Nevada is .a mineral empire, rich beyond the dreams of avarice. Go where you may, about you on all sides are mountains ribbed with precious metals, and if they were but situated in Montana, Mon tana would be doubly famous. Here we have the facilities for transport ing ores at a reasonable figure; there they have no transportation facilities unless at exorbitant rates. The Southern Pacific railway company has made Nevada a real desert, dor mant and non-productive. This cor poration has the State by the neck, throttling the very life out of it. But the time will come when this corpo ration will have competition. Other roads as capable as the Soutln'rn Pacific will release it from its slavery, and then will Nevada blossom as it ought to '"like the rose" but not till then. ONLY CIRAI'TIORS. A California illustrated paper sends its correspondents over here to write up the resources of the State. They procure the biography of every prominent business man in each coun ty and produce a half-tone photo graph of him, charge him $25 to $50 and this is their graft in writing up the resources of the State. Would it not be better to give this sum to the local paper and have it turn out a special edition setting forth the resources of the county in which it is doing business. The Reno Journal has entered upon Vol. LVIII. The Journal is a credit to Reno and the State of Nevada. The Bonanza is opposed to it politi cally, but it is the first exchange that we read every morning. The Journal is to be admired for its typo graphical appearand and its excel lent news service. The managers are all-around good fellows and we congratulate them and the people of Reno for possessing such an excellent sheet. The Knights of Pythias will insti tute the Tonopah lodge next Wednes day evening. The charter members and resident brothers are preparing to give the visiting brothers and Grand officers a hearty reception. It will consume the. entire night to get through with the work of the order. Wives whose husbands are out that night will realize that their hubbys have been to the lodge. And now it is the Bridgeport knocker that is knocking all those who "found themselves floundering in the wilds of the Tonopah-Ray coun try." Even after its inconsistent tactics and demented opinions have been shown up in truth, the Union continues knocking as only a whipped cur can. The wind-bag empties it self slowly this time. A handsome specimen of sulphide ore carrying high values in gold and silver was brought in fromC. Runge's Monte Cristo claim on Gold mountain this week. It is now on exhibition at the Mining Bureau. The supreme court lias denied a new trial in the case of the State of Nevada vs. Nevada Central Railroad. The company will now have to pay its taxes, something it should have done long' ago. ' The V. & T. railroud is to build a spur truck to the Willow Creek mine near Washoe. There are nine men now employed in repairing the old working. - People owning property '.in and around Tonopah will do well to see the firm of Cutting & Forman. i Continue To Do So. Reno people still continue to knock Tonopah, for what reason cannot be surmised, unless it be their greed for nickels. Win. Money, a brother of our popular townsman, Geo. Money of the Chloride saloon, arrived in Reno last week on his way to Tono pah to make his home. Business men in Reno udvised him not to come here, as the camp was n. g. und the mines in litigation. Mr. Money believing the statement, returned to San Fran cisco, and upon his arrival there re ceived a telegram from his brother to "start for Tonopah p. d. q., and when he arrived in Reno to get on the V. & T. cars and remain there until he got to Carson and if thirsty he could get all he wanted near the depot." He did so, and when he ar rived in Carson found u different class of people, who told him that Tonopah was the greatest mining district in the world. Why the people of Reno desire to throw cold water on this camp is " mystery. No one here is trying to belittle a small mine in their neigh borhood which they call the Wede kind. We all hope that it will become a bullion producer some day. Tono pah has never received one cent of Reno's money and never expects to. while on the other hand the Riverside town has thousands of dollars of To nopah bullion in her inside pockets. Reno is going to have a street side-show and will send out flaming circulars asking the Tonopah sucker to drop down and spend a few dol lars, but the Tonopahan will say nay, for this desert town is to have on the same date as the Reno side-show a seven days' round of pleasure affair. It is to consist of drilling matches, cocking mains, "knockers associa tion" meet, sagebrush floral parade, Indian fandangos in the evenings amid a shower of electric stars. On the last evening of the "whoop-up" there will be produced the comical farce of the Democratic and Silver party State Central Committee meet that was recently enacted in Reno. Reno's circus may be a hummer but the' carnival to be held here will outdo Sacramento's famous street fair. We hope Reno will always prosper and grow to become a great eity. Tonopuh Mining Bureau. The elegant offices of the above firm, though in a new mining camp, would do credit to any large city. Connected with this firm are a number of progressive men and each one thoroughly up in his line. The branch of mining, which is the most important, is looked after and re ported upon by one of the lie.t known and most reliable mining men in t lit west. The real estate department is presided over by a manager whose knowledge of real estate values is of the very best and hacked up by an experience of twenty years. The general office man,' who looks after investments and securities and at tends to all correspondence, is prob ably the best posted man on the resources of Nye county of any man in it. This firm is established for the purpose of carrying on a general brokerage business, handling mines, real estate, business opportunities, making investments for non-residents in gilt-edge securities, and promoting any legitimate enterprise. The editor of this paper is a very busy man. Too much so to answer correspondents, und lie is also per sonally acquainted with the gentle men conducting the Tonopah Mining Bureau, to whom he refers all non residents for any information con cerning the camp, assuring them of a thoroughly reliable report of con ditions as they exist, and that all matters entrusted to their cure and judgment will be satisfactorily ac counted for.
