sii ijhav, mai: M 14 . . Mi.i LONE MOUNTAIN MINE.; ISi I'ny in Lone Moun t iiin An J Olil Dintrict on Top. i ( i in t I'm 1 1 i ruii- mts with the llu-.li times of Silver IVak ami in the luter il.ivn "f 'iiiiili'liiriii, there was consul rnilile ii'iisi(ctiii curried on in I, line Mountain "(list rift. The ore was there in plenty, I hi t of such character us the conditions prevail ing rendered it almost worthless. Tim Selliy works had started up and were blowing out hase bullion bars galore, but there wus no means of yetting ore to them in those days. jvnch t!t O'Meara's inino, now at t rafting attention of the milling world on account of the fact that its ores are rich enough to pay for ship ment to and reduction by the Salt Lake smelters, is iocated ' on the north side of Lone Mountain, which forms a noted land-mark of a wide section of country. The property is twenty-four miles from Tonopah and thirty-two miles from Candelaria, the point on the Carson and Colorado to which the ore is shipped. In this section of the district the ores are found in a stratified limestone,. The surface indications are slight iron stains and ore has been found in every opening made so far within three feet of the surface. There ap pears two deposits, one of which in clines only about forty-live degrees. The owners have made four openings, one of which is now sixty feet in depth. Tin' ore has a lead base, running from nothing up to forty per cent, but is mainly a chloride, carrying from three to four hundred ounces in diver per ton, with about $3 in gold value. Its character as soft or "wet ore" renders it of special value to the smelters as a flux when reduced with more silicious ores. The principal ledge or deposit ranges in width up to twenty four inches, having an average of sixteen inches. Some chambers have been found five feet in thickness. The out put is atxiut 20,(10(1 sacks per month, netting the lucky Tonopah opera tors the sum of $20,00(1. Twelve miners are employed. The camp is within two miles of the pinyou forest which, supplies To nopah with fuel. Water is piped lino me camp iroin a spring located in the granite water shed. j Even without the presence some where in this region of a great re duction works capable of handling anything, from free-milling to smelt ing, the Alpine property is essen tially a "poor man's mine," for the reason that the ore has only to be broken out and the ore-buyers will do the rest. Neighborly Com men t. Tonopah wants the county seat of Nye county, and as a matter of sim ple justice should have it. Five sixths, if not mo-e, of the entire pop illation of Nye is in the new camp, while lielmont's glory has faded until now not over l."0 people live there. Kvery reasonable argument favors the removal. Despite this, and the fact also that a bill providing for re moval passed the Nevada assembly. I Jell, t he state senator from Nye, has proved himself equal to the task of defeating the general wish, by downing the bill in the senate, so far as reports show. Hell has a ranch somewhere near Itelmont, and is gov erned by that reason. We hope to see the Tonopah people win out yet. Inyo Uegister. Hooper Young escaped the death chair because he was declared "ab normally degenerate," and now miir derer Knapp, who killed live women, is about to enter a plea along the same lines. If the easterners would hang a few of these so-called degen erates a great reform would then Ih' started. According'to reports, an armless man with a revolver held between the Iocs of one foot ami a razor be tween the toes of the other, held up a Itutte gambling house the other day. The scene must have been worth the cost. 'lite Itlgl.t Mult, The real mining expert, who hn lirt graduated from si good v liool of mines uikI after m ils cuIIihimhI hi lunula hammering ther-leel, and pass ing from that to the shift ls fore man and superintendent i the man who lias won the tail to his name and is entitled to wear it. He comes into a district ready for business, looking the miner and business man. The overalls and jumper of the miner at the mine is good enough for him to go through the workings with, and he wastes no candle grease on that out fit for display. He does his work in a thorough manner, if not in one day in two, and spends a week or even a month on the ground, if necessary, to do the mine and also himself jus tice. He don't carry an 'I know it all' demeanor, neither is he afraid to ask questions of those employed there for fear of showing his i norance he has no ignorance, in a mining way, to show. He studies the miners as well as the mine, and from the most intelligent gets information that as sists him greatly in verifying his per sonally gathered knowledge of the property under examination, and in making a report that 'cannot be gone behind' by the people whom he represents. He does not leave the district just as soon as his work at the particular mine he came to ex pert is completed, but through the miners in the district, whose com pany he courts, and from a personal examination of the district, he leaves with an intelligent insight into the actual conditions existing therein. This is the kind of expert that pro motes the interests of a district. The kind of an expert that gives the prospect and its owner a square deal. Kailroad ISiisincss. Representatives of the San Fran cisco Terminal Railway and Ferry company and the Stockton and Ucck with Pass Railway company have ac quired a freight terminal in San Francisco, at a cost of $1,000,0(10, which will provide greater facilities than either the Santa Fe or the Southern Pacific controls. The new territory is located in the Potrero, just north of Islais creek, and com prises bi tween sixty and seventy full blocks, containing more than seventy six acres. The greater part of this property is submerged by the tides and it will require an expenditure of $2,000,000 to improve it, but the pro jectors of the enterprise are ready to proceed with the work. It is the general belief in railroad circles that George Gould is furnishing the finan cial backing, and that the new road will form the the western connection of his system, which now extends to Ogden. A iener:il Change. New regulations, or rather a change in freight tariffs, by the Car son anil Colorado railroad will have the effect to transfer all the freight ing teams from the Candelaria road to that between here and Sodaville. In the first instance freight was hauled to Candelaria on account of the existence there of a freight house in Which perishable goods could be stored while awaiting the teams. Now that the same accom modations have been supplied at Sixla, the railroad is saved the heavy haul up to Candelaria, and which it will not now do without additional freight charges up to $2 per ton. The McLean & McSweeny teams and in fact u 11 others will therefore be on the Sodaville road within a few days. In the District Court at Dayton, March 6th, Judge Murphy sentenced Adam Murali to be handed on the 15th day f May at the state prison of Nevada between !) a. m. and 4 p. in., to-wit : at the hour of 12 in. He also directed the sheriff of Lyon county to deliver the condemned man to tin! warden of the state prison within seven days from the date of the sentence. Report has it that clerks of eon jjrcHsmen have formed a union to keep their employers from knocking down on the government salary al lowance. Mr. Frank Hartmanof San Fran cisco, whoever he may lie, is advised that the Tonopah Hanan.a is not being sent to him from this office. Subscribe for the Hon A NX a. MIMKI,l..M'.(tl'S E. R.
