AVilkerson et als. The Austin Reveille of last week has the following in regard to the Robbins vs. Wilkerson case which came up before Judge Jones in the District Court of Lander county at Austin: "Robbins vs. Wilkerson et als. A Nye county case referring to litiga tion in Tonopah. When this suit was commenced in Nye county, plaintiff asked for and obtained a temporary injunction against defendants and asked for and had T. L. Oddie appointed receiver of the property in dispute. Cooke & Williams, attorneys for the defendants, noticed a motion in the District Court of Nye county to have injunction dissolved and order appointing receiver vacated, and notified P. M. Bowler, attorney for plaintiff, that they would call up the motion at Austin on or about the 20th inst., at which time and place attorneys appeared before Judge Jones. When the Judge, in open court, called Mr. Cooke's attention to the statutes and suggested to him that the Court had no jurisdiction to hear motion as noticed, in Lander county unless by consent, and Mr. Bowler objected to motion being heard in Lander county. Mr. Cooke asked leave to withdraw the motion and moved the Court to dismiss the same, which motion was granted and the proceedings thereupon terminated." Surrender to tlie Mulct. The steam traction engine that was to be operated between Soda ville and Tonopah has surrendered the job to the mules. Mr. Calder head and associates, after consider ing everything, concluded that the expense of building a wagon road for the iron horse would not warrant the outlay, for in a very short time a railroad will be built to Tonopah. The gentlemen comprising the Trac tion Engine Company are all men of means and were prepared to make a success of the venture had not the building of a railroad at once into this district become an assured fact. The engine will be taken to Carson or Reno for the present. In the Field. The Midland Railway, which has been incorporated to build a broad gauge railroad from Battle Mountain to Tonopah, the same to be extended to Ash Meadows and connect with Clark's road, has a corps of survey ors in the field at Austin. We believe that this road will be built im mediately. If the S. P. tries to put the screws on too tight, the Midland can parallel the S. P. track into Salt Lake. His First Visit. J. C. Donnelly, the well-known rep resentative of Moore, Hunt & Co., the liquor merchants of San Fran cisco, arrived in Tonopah Friday night. Johnny is well known to every resident of Nevada as "Jesse Moore Donnelly" on account of the famous brand of liquor of that name, and while here was shown our mines. When asked what he thought of them he replied that "There was more ore here than water in the Sacramento river." The Democrats are up against it. The Silver-Republicans have returned to their party and the Silver Party State Central Committee, to meet in a few days, will be minus Silverites, and Democrats will have to be sub stituted in their place. This State Central Committee must meet at all hazards, just for appearance sake. Oh, what a farce. The "beautiful" tried awful hard to cover the earth hereabouts this week but made a grand fizzle of it. Later She made her debut last I night, and this morning mother earth is clothed in a mantle of white. The Sodaville & Tonopah Telephone Company have forty subscriptions for phones on their local line in Tonopah. The hello will be a great convenience when completed. C. Lonkey, the Verdi lumber dealer, has been here for the past week on business with the branch yard. r Butler has a force of stone at work on the foundation of j C ' '-urch. WILD CAT MINES. The Grafter is at Work-Only Legiti mate Mining Sanctioned By the People of this District. It is evident to all who are ac quainted with the different locations in the Tonopah Mining District, which surrounds this town, that several grafters are becoming promoters in "wild cat" schemes. Their mode of operations will be to bond a piece of property, hav'i printed a glowing prospectus of the mine setting forth the many rich veins running through the ground, the high assays, etc., all of which does not exist and cannot be had until depth is attained, or in other words until the capping which covers this section has been gone through. A company that sinks a shaft along the lode in Tonopah to encoun ter one or more ledges and sells stock to carry on the work, setting forth facts as they exist, is what can be truthfully termed a legitimate mining proposition, but when a few grafters by lying statements and a flashy prospectus beguile the unsus pecting, he or they should be paraded in their true colors and properly branded. That there is a fraudulent scheme about to be worked the Bonanza is aware, and if the parties attunpt it their thieving work will be exposed. This camp has been developed" on its true merits by the strong arm of the miner, and every time a pick was struck in the ground be became a producer, not, a "grafter" who lives upon the money obtained from honest individuals by his oily tongue and thieving schemes. The Bonanza will show up any "grafter company" that may prepare to operate here. If at any time persons about to buy stock in Tonopah mines will write to the Bonanza it will give the inquirer the true merits of the prop erty and any other information de sired. One "wild cat" will injure this camp so severely that it would take many months to recover from the blow. There are plenty of legit imate mines to be opened up here, but those investing their money should know that shafts will have to be sunk, and many of them 500 feet. The Bonanza will stand for honest and legitimate mining and nothing else. A new-comer wanted this office to print him some bill heads ; when told the price, he set up a great howl, telling how cheap he could get the job in San Francisco. He ought to live in San Francisco and do business there. We pay our printers union wages, and in return desire to make enough from their labor to pay them off regularly. We are not working for glory. Geo. Corbett, an electrician of Virginia City, arrived on Tuesday's stage to assist Jack McKenzie to install a local telephone system in Tonopah. The local line will be built by Lothrop & Davis. Sheriff Campbell, of Elko county, has been inspecting the mines of Tonopah and Ray this week. He is highly pleased with what he saw. J. L. Josephs, manager of the To nopah Consolidated Mining Company, has been busily engaged at the mine since his arrival last week. T. M. Hammond, a deputy mineral surveyor for Nevada, anil L. S. Fin negan, a mining man of Republic, Wash., are here to locate. Frank Butler and one of the Clark brothers will put a four horse stage on between here and Ray, making daily trips. A complete stock of stationery will be carried at the Bonanza News Stand when we move into the new building. W. D. Nelligam, the painter, re turned from Bishop Wednesday. He has just received a large lot of wall paper. New Manager. J. M. Healy, former superintendent of the April Fool mine at Delamar, arrived Friday from Salt Lake to assnrne the management of the Salt Lake & Tonopah Company's mines here. i HE WAS TOO GOOD. Why Clarence Couldn't Be the Old Man's Son-in-law. "No, sir," said the old gentleman, bringing hia fist down hard on the desk in front of him, "1 will never consent to my daughter's becoming the wife of a man who uses strong drink!" "B-b-but," said the trembling young man, twirling his hat and ever and anon stealing a glance at the door as if calculating the num ber of jumps he would have to make in reaching it hastily, "I never tasted liquor in my life." Daniel Oettcnhold looked up with fuddenly awakening interest. "Oh," he suid, "never drank a drop, eh?" "Xo, sir," Clnrenee Darlington re plied. "1 do not know the taste of the nasty stuff." "Well, but u'posc you smoke and chew tobacco. Them's more habits I don't like, specially cliewin. A man that chews tobacco is" "1 beg your pardon, sir, but I have never used tobacco in any form. I never have even smoked a ciga rette." "11m!" her father answered. "But you swear like a trooper sometimes, I'll bet. Now, if there's anything I hate tr have around the house it's ii man that swears. Sweurin is a habit that no" "But 1 have never uttered an oath in all my life. I have never told a Ii,- r.or said a word that 1 would be ashamed to have any lady hear. r "Oh, confound it!" the old man explained as he reached in his pocket. "Here's n penny. Run out Hi-.d buy yourself a stick of candy, and don't bother me any more to day. I'm busy." Chicago Herald. Red T:pe In Ennbnd. A Somerset house clerk entered the private pm nf the head of his department to ask for a fortnight's holiday. The ollieial received him with iiis usual affability and told him to hand in his request in writ ing. "Oh, 1 did nit think that was necessary if I applied to you in per son," said tin-- clerk. "Oh, yes; in fact, it is indispensa ble." "Then I will go bark to the nil ice." "No need to do that; see, here arc pens, ink and papers. Sit down and write." The clerk obeyed. The petition ivis""writtei) out, signed and folded. "Now." said the functionary, "you have onlv to present it." "To whom?" "To me. of course!" And, taking the petition, he wiped his glasses, carefully adjusted then, read the document from beginning to end, placing it on file along with a num ber of similar applications, arid then remarked with the utmost gravity, "I have read your petition and re gret exceedingly that 1 am compel led to inform you that I cannot ac cede to your request." London Tit Bits. Why Spiders Are Not InceetJ. The spider is not nn insect, though probably nine people out of ten would class it under this term. With scorpions and mites spiders form a class in the animal kingdom known as arachnida. This name is derived from a mythical personage called Arachne, the daughter of a purple dyer of Lydia, who was fabled to have challenged Minerva to n trial nf skill in spinning. So indignant was the goddess at this act of boldness that she forthwilh transformed the hapless challenr into a spider, presumably in order that she might have the best possi ble opportunity of practicing the nrt on which she prided herself so much. Spiders differ from insects in five main particulars. Their eyes are simple instead of compound, they have eight legs in place of six, they do not pass through the metamor phoses which are characteristic of insects, they have no antennae, and t hoi r breathing is accomplished by means of organs which combine the functions of lungs and gills, instead of by tubes pervading their bodies. These points of distinction are suffi cient to deterniina the fact that it is impossible to class spiders as insects. Exchange. NEW TO-DAY.
