Then was the great Mizpah discovered. Not to be bonded for the use of one man, for from Keno, Carson, Winnemucca, Virginia City and Belmont came miners and friends of Jim Butler to share in its wealth. They located its surrounding hills ; they dug from its bosom the treasure to build homes and start the wheels of industry throughout the whole state. On those barren hills they have builded a city. They have caused sparkling water to flow, and electricity to shed its bright lights for the comfort of its five thousands oi people. Across the desert, for six ty miles the teams are coming. Teams bred and raised in the state of Nevada, hauling the products of the state of Nevada to the people of Tonopah. From the machine shops of Reno comes im mense hoisting' plants ; from Carson valley, from Mason valley and from the valley of the Humboldt they are hauling hay, grain, meat and produce to our people. Tonopah has caused the eyes of the world to be turned to Nevada. Tonopah has helped the whole state and we had hoped the people would feel generous towards Tonopah. But we are disappointed. They tell us that disease and death lurk at our very doors, and yet the death rate of Tonopah the past win ter has been less than that of either Carson or Reno. They warn the visitor not to drink our water, which is as pure as that which flows from the celebrated artesian well on the farm of our honorable governor. They say we are a transient and migratory people; that we are not taxpayers, and yet the live hundred residences in Tonopah are owned by our miners, and around their doors may be heard the playful voices of children. Strange rumors are cir culated that we are not even in the county for which we have done so much. Rumors, that the honorable gentlemen from Esmeralda county are too honest and generous to voice. Rumors that We are forced to believe have been circulated by residence of our own county, stung by jealousy or urged by some ultra motive. This insinuatingly whispered among you, that only one mine exists at Tonopah and that the camp is of doubtful permanency. Whether such rumors are circulated through maliciousness or through ignorance, I do not know. If through ignorance then we ask you, gentlemen, you senators sena tors and assemblymen, you residents of Reno, in the spirit of fairness, to deny such rumors, and say to their publisher, that Tonopah has pro duced six millions of dollars; that in the mines of the Tonopah company alone there is Twenty-six millions of dolliirs in sight according to the esti mate of the most distinguised expert in the world; tell him the Montana Tonopah Company, the Tonopah and Salt Lake company, the Fraction Consolidated company, all have ship ping mines, and that within the next twelve months, the paying mines will Ik! tripled. If he still doubts the permanency of the camp, then tell him, that careful capital has sought and obtained from the legislature of this state a franchise to build a broad guuge railroad into the town of Tonopah; that by the terms of that franchise, active work must com mence within four mouths, unil that ..li.l .
