It will In' well fur tin" churns of Tonopah to awaken to tlir necessity of providing fur tin ori;aiiizalioii ol an ulliciriil lire department, before inexorable fate may make us all wish that we liail done so. The mere fuel that tlir city lias so far been, mure fortunate than any other one in a thousand by no means indicates that such luck will continue. Independent of any corporate power whatever, the town lias provided itself with two standard chemical endues, which are .of incaleuable ..value if ellicieutly handled and utterly useless if they are iiot.'-i All property owners and business men are not liremeu . and miht not know u blunderbus from ';.a pat)iitfr, but they should know that .f iib'.dii'e, apparatus, can bo of., any irartiily use unless kept in perfect ('order' at all hours of the day and night. This can only be done by men wno know how anjl who are honored by special assijjnineat to such duty. The general apathy manifest at thisstajfe of procedure is inexplicable, but there is a course open by which, . 1 if they are disposed to act, may well i- accomplish all that is required. For the purpose of fofiiiiny a tire com pany, a mass meeting of property owners i not at all requisite. Unless ' said property holders became active members they would properly have no voice whatever in the election of company or department otlicers. That is the prerogative of the men on the active roll.i ilieu let a dozen or iinore of the younger element get together, at some time of their own appointment and' by the adoption of a constitution and by-iaws in the usual form, organize a volunteer lire company, thereby gaining the right to the namiJof Tonopah if they want it and the distinction of becoming " No. 1." T''e next dozen or twenty can do the same thing, for say " Uutler Engine Company No. 2." Kach company to admit its own hon orary (lion voting) members, its own president, secretary, foi email and assistants. The. membership being equal, the companies at stated times to elect a 'chief and assistant engi neers. The town generally is liable to tako a lively interest in this con test, but, the town generally does not vote. . With this beginnini,', all other es sentials follow in due course. The success of a volunteer, tire depart ment hinges upon the life, spirit and ctevotion to public duty. With the honor of gettiiigj"tirst Water" always in view, there would be u, frozen machine run to. a blaze as was the case on New Year day. i LOCAL UOVKKXMKXT. It is evident that some', form nf in. corporation must be adopted by Touopah, in Hie interest of public welfare, good government and effec tual . attention to the thousand and one details incident to the adequate protection of life, health and prop erty.' The step, important as it is, and will be, is not one of anticipation, for the city is already in; re and con stantly growing. In due ('onser'va t ism us to the luture, it will be rive lime's larger before the next biendial session of the State legislature the authority with power to set the legal wheels hi motion. There u hardly room for doubt but that body will readily pass such a measure, should it embrace any well digested plan formulated by the representative men of Tonopaii. Nor is the task of piTit'ing auiorganie act or charter a (ilficulMone. In various long statutes Nevada already empowers Hoards of Coun ty Commissioners to do and perform a host of official acts affecting the routine of municipal government- and which have been loui-id to work well and economically in other instances. Hut in all the other cases the town or city govern ment is also the county seat, where tle functions of )County 'ommission ers are exercised 'b practical citi zens. For ti e purpose of earrwng on proc-edings go, erning the conduci. of public affairs in 'lonopah, - the "officials at reiiiot lleimuMt inight as w 1 be in Tophet. 'Nevertheless.-we are not asking the'removal of tlit .seat of county giivmi men f; at least u ilil the inevitable general territorial readjustment of -counties throughout this tiiiii .. of . . the state. The act required at the hands of the Stale assembly is one authorizing the flection of a Hoard of 'Trustees. .1 .1,1 I . Mil r t .1 nfl.iii i 1i i. 'he ; (i: i'M m..iiml ! l l ljl.11 l!tni.

Empower some prominent cilizeli to name the com mittee. The inemU'i's of the Senate and House Naval committees, after con fercnces with the Secretary of the Navy, have peaelieully decided upon a plan for the increase of the person nel of the Navy. It contemplates an additional naval cadet for each Con gressional district, two for each Senator and ten annually to be ap pointed at large by the; I'resident. The diHiculty in connection with the inequality in classes which would result from the sudden injection of the increased allowance is to be .solved by giving the Secretary of t hi1' Navy the discretion of . determining the times at which new appointments are to be made. This increase will give Nevada three additional cadets. No relocation of mil ng claims oc curred in Touopah district January 1st. Mil - iwners generally had com plied with the law governing develop ment work. In t just the same many were on the ground 1o see that no blackmailing of just titles, was at tempted Had the '..Jumper been abroad the coroner wo.iil have had occasion to sit upon several "stills'" When mining csiinpanies operating in any district adverti-e stock for s he in outside papers and no adver tisement of the same appears in the home paper, there must be something wrong with the property. People who deal in stocks should watch the home paper for the true merits of a mining property.
