The Bonanza articles of last week relative to the New York -Tonopah and the Philadelphia Tonopah prop erties, as intended, were timely. The emphasis comes in the way of an ore strike ill the bottom of the li'.MI foot New York shaft, which was made on Wednesday last and results in a buoyancy affecting the whole camp. To all appearances the ore is of pre cisely the same character as that of the Fraction bonanza. Future dev elopments all alony: that westerly trend of the southern svstem of ledges are looked for with the utmost confidence and expectancy of wealth for the far sighted owner. The due sequence of these recurring discov eries is steadily knocking out the sceptics as well as creating the ut most eflorts to penetrate and explore the underlying mineral bearing zone in and surrounding Tonopah. Little T uopitli. Active operations have been re sumed on the " Homestead," the main shaft of the Little Tonopah De velopment company, and the inau aifement is confident that, judrinj,' from present indications, within a few weeks the company's stock will be quoted at a much higher limine than one dollar a share, the lowest price at which any sold. With its sum of it has Ix'cn i-imitatiation of only lull. Hull shares, at par value of t each, and conservative, slow but fure methods of procedure, the stock of the " Little Tono," in the cut of the looked-for strike in the main shaft, will equal if not exceed ' in value that of the best paying com pany in the camp, lhe new .Morse Fairbanks engine and hoisting ma chinery on tlie Homestead shaft are giving perfect satisfaction. Tonopuh City. The main shaft of the Tonopah City Company will soon be equipped witli one ol tlie nnesl hoisting plants j and rentier v in New ork City, ac in the district, when the gasoline j couipanied by B. F. Kdwards of Can hoist now in use will be replaced with I dcluriu are here. Chris. Zahriskie is a steam hoist of 50 horse-powHr cap- j un old-timer in these parts and still acity. Tlie plant will be modern in , loves old Nevada. He has large very particular and will capable of sinking to a depth of 1500 feel. Tlie shaft at present has reached a depth of 1(15 feet, and every effort is being made to push tlie work ahead so that cross-cutting can be commenced. ( Iwir.g to to the excellent prospects of the mine and tlie healthy condition of the treasury the directors of the company have slopped the sale of the stin k, and although many appli cations have bcrn made for it of late I hey have been refused. Oltio-Tonopnli. The Ohio-Tonopah company's works are moving along smoothly, the ma chinery doing most excellent service at a low cost. The shaft is now sunk considerably below the 1100 level, and the bottom shows a 'marked and iavorable change, the management believing that the lode porphyry will soon be encountered. As the strike of the principal vein systems of the camp are through this company's ground, developments here will be watched with the greatest interest. ooiii inn. The standard head gear or gallows frame having been completed, the heavy frame-work of the shaft-house is going up over the twin hoisting engines, which with tlie boiler are all set and in place. But one reel will be used at present, which is capable of sinking 1000 feet. A very large amount of lalmr has been required to secure foundation room for the new works, but in a short time tlie num ber of steam hoists und whistles in Tonopah will be increased by that of Gold Hill. Kiilte-Tonopnli. Tlie Butte-Tonopali Mining com pany, T. L. Oddie, manager, has temporarily closed down, awaiting the arrival of a steam hoist which lias been ordered. Two men are em ployed doing assessment work on adjoining fractious. It is the inten tion of the company to sink 500 feet mid cross-cut to the east. This property is one of the best inside prospects, and with its management Is certainly worthy of investment. LOCAL C ONCLNTKAU'K. Tliaiiksjjivinu Nov. 27th. Turkey? W. ,1.

The State of Nevada contains an area of 112,01)0 square miles, of which Nve county covers approx imately 20,K00, or about i:i,:i00,000 acres. The furthest election precinct Palirumn is distant .( miles from Tonnpah in an air line, about twice that distance by road. The county boundary lines present the general contour of an open um brella. The southern sections of Lin coln and Nye having no business con nections with the state other than a remote official one, should be formed into a new county. The Klectric Plant. J. D.

Tom Fleming and Billy Waters, the proprietors, are a strong team und success will follow them. The massive granite foundation for the shaft-house at the big shaft of the Tonopuh conipany has reached its level, being about twelve feet ' liiifli from the surface on the lower siue. insiue iuuiiuuuoii iui uie uu horse-power is in course of con struction. Philadelphia Profits states that "The Weepah mining company of Nevada has acquired several more claims adjoining its property, and they expect to meet with good re sults." This reads somewhat funny here, where it is known that the compuny failed to mako good its original contruct to purchase the Wecpuh mine itself, alleging inability to secure clear title. Two Shifts. The management of the Tonopuh company has issued an order effect ing u general change in the working system, and has decided to employ but two shifts of men during each twenty-four hours, the day men working nine hours, while the night shift will labor but eight, as hereto fore. This arrangement is already provided for by a rule of the Miners' Union. Most of the great mine is now well ventilated, but some of the long drifts are not yet connected with the shafts. In running these, especially, tlie men will be saved from rushing into the smoke. It is under stood that the number of miners employed will not be reduced. Revival of Old Palmetto. M.

They have acquired ownership of tlie Mc Namara group at Palmetto, wherea sampling of the ore bodies discloses no less than 20,000 tons that afford, according to a statement made by M.J. O'Meura, values of 25 per cent leud, 40 ounces silver and ti.50 gold per ton. The purchasers have decided to equip the property with a concen trator, which will be provided next season. SOME OF THE WINNERS. Mention of SlJCCCIUiful U. L.-R. County Candidates. Jas. CI. Cushing, the Labor Union Republican nominee for Sheriff of Nye county, is elected by six majority. All tlie precinct returns have been canvassed by the commissioner with the exception of White River, which (Milled six votes. In that precinct Logan received three votes, Powers two and Cushing one. It is said tiiat Logan will contest the election of Cushing, and Logan's friends here are in a quaudery upon what grounds he can contest. Cusliing's friends claim that he is elected squarely and they do not propose that ho shall be buncoed out of his office. R. F. Gilbert, of Belmont, Labor Union Republican nominee, is elected County Treasurer. This is good news to our people, as Bob will make an excellent custodian of our county funds. He is elected by eight ma jority. Win. Enger, U. L..-R. nominee for County Clerk is elected by a nice majority. He will manage the office . in a manner satisfactory to every resident of the county. The returns show that J. R. Duf tield, U. L.-R. nominee, is elected Public Administrator by a large ma jority. Congratulations, Duff., old boy.' Semi-official returns from all but one precinct of Nye county show that the Union Labor und Repub lican parties have elected five can didates on their ticket the sheriff, treasurer, clerk, public administra tor, and constable. This is not so bud considering the way politics were done in Tonopuh. It looks as though the Union Labor party is not quite so dead as the Democrats contend, but on the contrary is very much alive. Thomas Kendall is fast becoming one of Tonopab's prominent mining men. He has in the past two months secured many "close-in" claims that, will net him a fortune.
