Pursuant to its well-defintid policy of upholding every material interest of this entire section of tlie State, 1lie Bonanza will, from time to time, fully report ull udviinceinents made and work effected in tlie course of of utilizing the immence power of the Owens river falls as a future invalu able adjunct to our mining industry. Tiie projectors of this enterprise do not propose to attempt the im possible (cat of bringing Owens river water into Tonopah, but through its gravity power they intend to send in enough chained lightning to revolve every reel or wheel in southern Es meralda and northern Nye counties, together with light by which to see them go, at minimum oost. Telegraphic advices received from the engineers now engaged upon the surveys for two or more power houses, dutns, flumes and canal, are as yet too meager to admit as con clusive the findings reported, but from data obtained it is apparent that the volume, fall and velocity of the stream are so great that the line of necessary diversion of the water wili be very short.' This fact, considering the rugged nature of the banks, is of importance as reducing the cost of the rock work to half that of any previous estimate. The entire work is upon unappro priated, non-mineral und unreserved government land. Its operation will not affect any existing appropri ator or riparian rights in tlie slight est degree. No snow, ice, cold or drought can reduce its effectiveness at any hour in the year. Constructive material is as abund ant and cheap as at any point on the eastern side of the Sierras. Poles of regular and ample dimensions and strength for supporting transmission wires are obtainable near the start ing point from Sierra Nevada forests and from the timber belt of the White mountains, which the line will proba bly cross on its way here, a distance roughly calculated at 100 miles. The proprietory rights involved belong to H. C. Brougher, W. W. Huoth und Thos. W. Parker of Tonopah. The President's message, sent to Congress on the 2d instant, fully meets the expectations of the coun try as an able state document, and is one which should be closely read. The New Hanking House. At the meeting of the directors of the Nye Comity Bank recently held in this city, the following officers were elected: T. L. Oddie, Presi dent; (ieorge S. Nixon, vice-President and general manager; John S. Cook, cashier. The board of direc tors are T. L. Oddie, George S. Nixon and Kenneth Jackson. The steel doors, attached to which are time locks, have been placed in their place in the stone vault which will be completed in a couple of days. The bank will be ready for business inside of ten days. iiraiul Holltlay Hall. lonopuh Aerie o. 271, Order of Kagles, announces the beginning of preparations for a grand ball to be given on Christmas eve. The plans outlined involve a dancing entertain ment of the highest order. The great hall will be adorned with entirely new and elaborate decorations, honored by the presence of a lordly and very much ulive North American eagle, whose services are loaned by Man ager Curtis, of the Fraction. Sou vinir programs will enumerate the iluncei and their order. t will be the grandest affair of the expiring year. : Manson & Wittenberg announce elsewhere their business of general il ravage and hauling to und from any parts of town. They uttend prompt ly to ull orders in their line and are earning a goodly shure of patronage. The Site Acquired. Tuesday last the State Hank and Trust company bought the Jas. L. liutler lot on the southwest corner of Main street and Hrougher ave, pay ing therefor $1(1,500. The site, now occupied by the "OHice" , saloon, the Mining Bureau Smith's photograph gallery and the Townley drug store, is 50x100 feet in area. The transfer was effected by Hon. T. B. Mickey, president of the banking corporation. The st ructure will be three stories high, built of solid cut granite, fire proof and provided with burglar proof vaults and every modern equipment so far devised by the building art of the day. The building will cover the entire lot, with a front elevation of three stories on Main street. As sending the grade on the avenue there will be two stories and one on St. Patrick street. The bank quar ters are calculated to be twenty-four feet wide on Main, with a hail and stair-way six feet in width, the re maining twenty feet front providing a fine room for any business pur pose. The work, in its magnitude and cost is a fair illustration of the conlidenceof a conservative and solid financial institution in the perma nence and importance of louopati, upon its own basis as well as a future mining center. The massive structure, erected at a cost of 50,000, will be a fit ting mate to the tine and well-nigh completed Golden building, just op posite and almost side by side. They will conslilute the newest and finest business blocks in the State, the home of twoof the stongest banking con cerns in Nevada, both of which are maintr'med by and handle local capital New Mining Map. Hixiker & Bradford, the United States Deputy Mineral Surveyors, lire preparing a large map of the Tonopah and surrounding mining districts, showing the surveyed claims thereof. While this map will be published at a considerable loss to them, they feel that the best inter ests of their clients demand the pub lication of a correct map of this und the surrounding districts. All groups will appear in distinctive colors with the owners' name printed thereon in large letters. This map will show ull claims surveyed by Booker it Brad' ford, in Tonopah, Gold Mountain, East Klondike, VVeepah, Nopah and Ray mining districts. All parties who have had their claims surveyed by other parties should call at once with the field notes and arrange to have their claims placed thereon if they desire to have the same appear on said map. The map will be ready for the publishers Dec. llttli. All claims surveyed by Booker & Brad ford before the lHth will appear on the map, which will be copy-righted. Tono)tih l'ostiii:ls(erslii. The resignation of W. J. Sinclair, postmaster of Butler postortice, is in the hands of the postal department. The question of his suceessorship comes up and already candidates for the position are in the held. K. 11. Shields, the merchant of North Main street, and C. K. r'ord, of the livery firm doing business on South Mam street, are aspirants for the respon sibilities and work, in the interest of whom petitions are being circulated. W. W. Booth, editor and manatrer of the Bonanza, representing as cen tral a point as the postoflice now oc cupies, has announced his willingness to accept the office, but has no peti tion in the field. Salt; at ;!! Mountain. Messrs. Jcilinson & Colchiin have sold to K.

Mr. Hrodek, formerly of tlie Corns tock, is now extensively inter ested at Hakersheld and in Kern county oil lauds. His investment in Gold Mountain property evinces good mining judjjment, ut least. The re cent developments on the rich Colo han ledfje in the Tonopah Union shaft particularly, has enhanced values all alony; the line, to and including the Lucky Tom. The Kentucky. The Kentucky saloon und the cafe adjoining, under the management or R. Calahan, the new proprietor, in vites public attention and patronage through the Bonanza advertising columns. The interior of this popu lar establishment has been newly painted and papered throughout. Mr. Calahan is credited with the comprehensive wisdom of "knowing how to run a hotel," and a bur as well, of which fact his patrons will get the benefit. Heath at Soibtville.

The valuable holdings of the Hos-ton-Tonopah Mining company com prise five full size claims, the Reptile, Nevada Queen, Mayday, Pinto and the Pedro. They are situated one-half mile north from the Mi.pah ledge und adjoin the properties of the Mizpah-Ex tension and those of the North Star Tunnnel and Devel opment company. On broader con sideration of relative position, they are in line with the great mineral zone running through from Silver Peak, Klondike, Ray, Liberty and Berlin. On the Reptile is exposed a ledge of quartz from five to fifteen feet wide, cropping for 1250 feet, which carries fair values in both gold and silver. No work has been done directly on tlie ledge except a hole five feet in depth, which shows six feet of white and blue quartz of very gtxid quality. Messrs. Wingtield & Hennessy run a tunnel 175 feet ex pecting to tap tlie ledge at 200 feet, but suspended this work when incor poration was effected. In view of future operations the tunnel will be of no advantage. In its course there was disclosed a small stringer of black spar that carried i:i.50 per ton in gold. It is in the plans of the company to sink a shaft 100 feet be low the ledge, and then drive a cross cut. A 40 horse power steam en gine has been ordered from Fair banks, Morse & Co., which can be rated at 50-horse power, and is ca pable of sinking 2,500 feet. From all surface indications the croppings of the ledge is tlie one up on which the Mizpah-Ex tension com pany are now working, only 100 feet distant. Being so near to proper ties that have proven good, with a known outcrop of ore, tlie Boston Tonopah will also prove to be a pro ducer. This result will le expedited by rapid work with one of the best equipped hoisting plants in the camp. Supervision of the work is in the hands of J. S. McCambridge, a thorough miner who has had much practical expercnee while in charge of some of the heaviest producing sections in Touopuh. A Curd. The undersigned desires to express her acknowledgment of profound gratitude to the many good friends and kind public for the solicitous care and attention bestowed upon her husband during his serious illness. In his convalescence 1 beg to tender my earnest and sincere thanks to all those who in the long days of unxiety so nobly aided his recovery. Thankfully, yours, Mrs. W. J. Sinclair. l'U-iity of Wnter. Superintendent Lewis of the Crys tal water company rcporls that a How of water has been struck in the tunnel or crosscut between the old and new wells ample to supply every body. There is still 1(1(1 feet to run yet to connect the two lilt foot wells. If needed the pumps could as well send in 11)0,000 gallons daily, us the demand now requires only between liftecn and twenty thousand gallons.
