THK TONOI'All M INKS. The ore shipments from the Tono jiuh mines is greater to-day than during any period of the camp's his tory. Every team coming in with freight has a load of ore going back. The smelters of the Coast are hand ling more of Tonopah ores than here tofore, hence the larger shipments. Consider for a moment the expense of hauling, railroad transportation and smelting charges incidental to the treatment of our ores, and what other State in the west can boast of ore rich enough to stand such a tax and still yield a princely profit to the shipper. Fifty dollar rock is exceed ingly high grade in any country but Nevada, and it would be equally high grade here if we had the same trans portation facilities as Colorado or Jtah. Here we do not attempt to ship ore of less value than $100 per ton, and comparatively little of that, for the full expense of hauling, hand ling and treating a ton of our ore is very close to t."0. The railroads in other States do not levy a shipping tax upon ores that tends to close every mine in the country which they traverse. Upon the contrary their tax is in keeping with a progressive business enter prise; for instance, the $1.00 per ton rate on ores from Cripple Creek to the smelters in Pueblo and Colorado Springs. If Tonopah had a branch road ex tending from the proposed Salt Lake & Los Angeles railway, starting from a point in the Meadow valley wash and following a water grade across the Armagosa, up the Ash meadows into Ralston valley and directly into this camp, we could be assured of placing our ores, with the smelters of Utah and Colorado at a shipping expense of five or six dollars per ton. " 1 - ' Can the most sanguine Nevada ''boomer" foretell what such a change would mean for our State. We can enumerate some of the improvements that would follow, to tvlt:' The settle ment of our valleys, the attraction of capital to our various industries and agricultural, stock and mining inter ests especially the latter. South cm Nevada can produce more fifty and sixty dollar ore than the ordinary railroad could transport to market. We look for relief through the com ingof a railroad from the south. The Southern Pacific cannot and will not aid Nevada. Her policy has long been outlined, and the people of the State have groaned under the burden of unjust taxation from the first day that the Central Pacific became a trans-continental freight carrier. A t'oniNtoek Yarn. oc Bailey, the veteran carman at the C. & C. shaft, reports a shower of angle worms during the rainfall last night, the platform at the en trance to the C. & C. hoisting works being covered with them. The most convincing evidence that the worms came from space is the fact that he scraped a handful of them from the crown and rim of his hat. Mr. Bailey's testimony is corroborated by numerous early risers who observed myriads of the worms on Mill and Carson streets and on C street side wulks. Scientists explain this ap parent elemental phenomenon by stating that the worms ore caught up in whirlwinds and carried to a great heiirht, descending to the earth again through natural gravitation. Report. Legal matters attended to at the Tonopah Mining Bureau. Send the Bonanza to your friends, j THK STATE CAPITOL. The question of changing the cap itol of Nevada from its present home in Carson to some more desirable and accessible city in the State is being agitated by , the press of Nevada. Especially are the papers of Reno setting forth the advantages of the Riverside town as against every other section of the State, and more particularly in oppositition to Carson. Have the residents of Nevada failed to see in the rapidly growing city of Tonopah the future metropolis of the State ? With the advent of railroads, the building of great mills and smelt ers, an extensive mineral belt devel oped and yielding the greatest output in mining history, our valuable tur quoise mines putting their product into the markets, wherein it will be possible for every man in the camp to wear a gem as large as a horse shoe, and the many other conditions pertaining to substantial growth and development, is this camp to be over looked ? And will cot Tonopah be considered not only a possible but highly probable aspirant for the fu ture seat of government ? Assuredly so ! We give notice in advance that we want every good thing that comes within the gift of a generous people. We are not out with our hammers knocking any section of Nevada; we are upon the contrary blowing a blast for the entire State and inci dentally doing a little crowing for Tonopah. Our growth and development would make the people of some other sections of the State very egotistical, while with us our good fortune makes us feel that less favored sections than our own will be benefited indirectly by our wonderful prosperity. Our last but not least demand for recognition of our claims to the State capitol is in the fact that Tonopah is a dry town. Legislators and State officials would not be troubled with the water drinking habit while here, and what a Parwli.se it would be. Tonopah would uecome the Mecca for the old boards of State officials as well as the new ones.
