The able and satisfactory performance Iiy him of similar duties in a wider lield can be implicitly relied upon. His host of public spirited friends are anxious to secure for Nye county the henelit of his olticial services. Auditor.

As a resident of Tonopah he w ill be riirht where most if not all of the cases in which the people are directly interested will oriirinale. Mr. Chambers came here from Seattle, with an enviable repu tation for having made a number of able and winning leyal battles in le hall'of workinirnicn njrniust the eon seicnecless exactions of corporations.

A 2 h. p. frasoline engine is used to operate the exhaust fan. Water is piped under pressure into the enjrine room from a tank on the hill. A lijrht railway connects with the wood yard, which with black smith shop and carpenter shop make a compact and cheaply operated plant.

The roof of the two story granite building occupied by his ex tensive business has been removed and an additional third story is under course of construction. Watchman Simpson has determined to devote all sums collected by him over ll."0 per month to a fund for the purchase of a chemical engine. Thus property owners who support the present measure of protection are assured that all possible over payments will inure to objects on the same line the establishment of a lire department. Political Literature. This article was contributed by a subscriber, but was crowded out of our editorial columns, so we present it herewith. It must be quite interesting to the voters of this county who have per used the columns of the Honanza for the past few weeks and read therein the views upon the political situation, to read the feeble and abortive at tempts of the "Miner" to answer the same. The Honanza has given its readers an honest and unpreju diced view of the political situation, supported by facts and ligures. The only arguments offered by the Miner in refutation of these views have been, "Twenty five Years on the Desert,'' "Advice From Joaquin Mil ler," "Lent Allen of Churchill," "Give Us Water Uncle Sam," etc., etc., ad nauseutii. We ask the readers if these articles, emanating from the poetic mind of tlie editor of the Miner, answer the logical reasons given why victory should perch upon the Repub lican banner at the coming election, (ieniiis is easily discovered ; some times, however, there is another ailment of the human mind mistaken for genius. State Candidates. On Monday the 2dth instant, the Republican candidates for (iovernor, Congressman, Surveyor General and State Treasurer will arrive in Tono pah. A mass meeting will be held at Miners Exchange Hall on the follow ing evening, at which Mr. Cleveland, j Mr. Furriiigton and others will ad- dress the people. This notice will afford ample time for townspeople as well us the voters of surrounding dist ricts to be present. j As all know our leading State can didates are able men, whose clean ! records and profound knowledge of statecraft entitle them to an impar tial hearing. Their reception will be made a rousing one by the working men, the mining men and the business men, with their wives and daughters. I or a New Hull. The Tonopah Aerie of Eagles has ap appointed a committee to select a site and prepare plans and details for the erection of a hall. So far as now calculated upon, the structure is to be of two stories, covering a space of 4llxS(l feet, the ground floor to be leased for business purposes. It is probable that the cost will be de frayed by the issuance of bonds, which will lie readily taken up by members of hhe order and business men generally. Arrived With the (iootls. Jack McKenzieund Matt MeGuirk. contractors for wiring the Sodaville and Tonopah Telegraph line, arrived Friday noon, having accomplished the work of stretching sixty miles of w ire in the remarkably short time of twelve and one-half days. They are here with the goods all right. The Amount. The sum subscribed by Tonopah in support of the striking coal miners and the cause of unionism aggregates 412, at latest information. Of this, the lieuefit ball managers turned in 1S0. i IIK .MINDS OI' KAY. Work Itclng Done by the Dillcr cut Companies. The Kay A O'llrien company has tieen steadily ut work. Necessary dead work tills been completed by making un air connection with the Horn Silver shaft. Ore extraction will now begin. The eust drift has developed some good ore. Sinking is iM'ing continued from the. 28(1 level, where the ledge is widening and looks better than ever. Our statement as to this property is now justly more favorable than any we have hereto fore made. Hoisting machinery will soon be placed on the works and the time is not far distant when teams will be hauling ore shipments to the railroad. Kay I'.vtensloii. Tlie shaft is now KM) feet deep. Drifting on the chute of ore first en countered at 40 feet has begun. The company hu.s u tine showing of high grade ore. This company was or ganized only t wo months ago. Work ing capital is coming in every day from the sale of treasury stock at 2."ets. per share. Manager Keen informs us that he will soon install a M2-horse power hoist and thereafter do mining in a mining way. Coronation. The Coronation company has its shaft down 14(1 feet which will be con tinued to the 200, from whence a cross cut will be run to catch the ledge on the wall of the porphyry, which at this point crops to the surface. Coal and Power Company. The Tonopah Coal and Power com puny has brought in some 10 tons of coal from its mine 35 miles northeast of town, the first shipment of coal from a Nevada mine to a Nevada camp. The product has been gener ally tested und pronounced lirst-class. It burns steadily, producing a clear white Hume that indicates perfect combustion. The principle owners of this proper ty, which consists of 1120 acres, are the Pittman Urns., Illuinenthal Bros, and W. Me. Wilson, w ho have formed a cor poration under the aliove title. ( )per dtions are backed w holy by local cap ital and in view of the certainties of the thing should be so controlled and kept. The veins range from four to six fei't in width, now opened by a shaft aUiut HO feet deep. In the present lack of transportation or any regular line of teams, together with the absence of hoisting machinery, the cost of delivering the coal here is al together in excess of what it will be, but consumers can obtain it at $2ti per ton. It is probably economical at that. As may be expected, the existence of this important resource is attract ing much attention. The owners are free to show the property and answer all questions concerning it. (iolilen Itlock. Tlie roofing of the Golden building has been laid and will, it is hoped, be completed before winter weather" may chance to come on. The cornice or tire wall, laid in handsome white stone shaped with axes, is Hearing completion. Flooring and inside work is under way and it looks like the workmen would finish their big job a month before the time originally stated. Mail Contract. John O'Keefe has been awarded the contract for carrying the mail between Sodaville and Tonopah. The pay is f3,(HI0 per milium. Schedule, six times a week, to arrive here ut 5:H0 p. m., provided the south train gets into Soda on time.
