"In the month of August, 1IMMI,
when the Kim beat relently down
upon the smouldering deserts of Ne
vada, and the old prospector sought
the shade of some dilapidated build
ing to tell his stories of the past
glories of the Comstock ; when the
Carson and Colorado trains made
monthly trips towards the south, and
many a stage coach rotted in de
serted corrals ; while the solemn
smokestacks of Ik'lmont looked down
upon the dismantled and decaying
mills and deserted mines, Jim Butler
was prospecting along the San An
tone ranire to the south. 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
