Money, Jas. Smith, S. V. Santos. L. Laird, Geo. Lewis, Ike McKai Iscar Jameson and V. II. Saule. Hlumenthal, Maltesta and Salsherry had decided opinions on the sulijet't. and Smith was excused on the ground that liis son was a witness, so the case was tried before the remaining twelve. District Attorney ('has. Richards opened the case for the prosecution. .Miss Patterson testified that on Wednesday morning us she was hear ing a class, she turned from the Mark board to the class quickly with ;i pointer in her hand, and was aware that she had aceidenlly knocked Mime child's hand among the several that were raised. Shortly after wards she noticed Eddie ink at his desk with his head on his arm, and in a few moments he left the room without permission in consequence of which she sent a child for him. In a few moments the defendant came into the room and in a ferocious man lier demanded to know why her child was whipped for other childrens' offenses, why he was at the foot of the class when he should be at the head, why .Miss I'atterson had laid the knuckle bare and brought the Mood, at the same time shaking her lirst in Miss Pat terson's face. Miss I'atterson had a pointer in her hand at. the time, which the defendant wrenched from her in a raging man ner anil and broke into pieces. The teacher reina'ked that defendant was no lady, upon which defendant opened a tirade and filing the broken pointer a distance of sixty feet to ward Miss I'atterson who was at her desk. The defendant then with more loud and angry talk left the room. Jos. Smith, the lad who went after Nddie .ink, testified that Mrs. Zink said she was going up there to maul Miss I'atterson. Otto Richards, a bright faced lioy nf 12 years, said : ''.Mrs. .ink came in like she was going to kill some body and acted very unkind and im polite and kept shaking her first." Miss Hicks testified that in the in terest of Miss I'atterson she went ut o ice to the ink house to seethe true condition of the child's finger and found that tile abrasion was not the si.e of a grain of wheat and that it iiad unmistakably been caused by a scab being knocked off. New tis sue already formed showed plainly there had been a little sore on the linger previously. The defendant, being sworn, ad mitted she had said the things charged by Miss I'atterson, and broke and threw the pointer, but de nied having shook her fist. A neighbor. Mrs. Brown, testified she had seen a little blood on the child's linger when lie came home. I'. M. Howler appeared for the de fense. The jury were unable to agree upon a verdict and the case will again he tried. 1 1 is the inten tion of the trustees of this district and of the county superintendent of schools to uphold the dignify of the school and to enforce the laws that have been made for the protection of schools. Miss I'atterson has been sustained in her action by the trus tees. It is a well known fact that she is a conscientious teacher of a most mild and even temperment and seldom indicts even a light corporal punishment Attacks of this kind, if permitted with impunity, would demoralize any school and for this reason there is a special stato law making an offense of this nature a misdemeanor and this law has been enforced by the various school boards of the state since its enactment.

Ore-Development Now In Order Other Important Notcn. Inspection of the big New York Tonopah mine and its operation en ubles the Bonanza to speak with greater accuracy as to the work go ing on and the decidedly encouraging features disclosed in the deepest opening. 1 he solidly timliered work ing shaft, ox!) feet in the clear, is now below the bsu-foot point and sinking will continue right along, the works being fully equal to ttie task of reaching 1200 feet depth. At WI5 feet a two-inch width seam of quartz came in, which has proved continu ous for twenty feet downward, and widens to one foot at the bottom. Assays give returns in liotli gold and silver, but are not sufficiently high to make it milling ore. The ledge has a slight dip to the south, just the same as the rich ledges which trend to the New York -Tonopah ground, from which we opine that it is a "feeder" and that the main ore bodies will be encountered in the south drilt as it shall near the base of Mt. Butler and the southern side of the ore-bearing channel. The man agement, however, are wisely ex tending drifts both north and south from the i25 level, which are now out fifteen from the shaft. Hoth these carry small stringers of mineralized quartz and the indications are that a veritable bonanza may be encouu tered at any time. Tonopah Central. Tne Tonopah Central properties, which are situate aliout one mile south of the principal Tonopah mines consists of eight claims.

Twenty thousand feet of mining tim bers are being delivered at present to carry on the work. Paymaster. During the past week work has been continued in north and south drifts on 54 foot level.

TONOPAH MINING REVIEW Van Duzcr fir Co.'n New Mining Journal Promote Well Volume II, No. 1, of the Mining and Industrial Review, published by C. D. Van Duzer & Co., is upon our table. It Is a creditable edition, and is all Nevada from first to last. The people of Nevada should give this Tonopah publication their earnest support. There has been enough capital expended by Tonopah people, in foreign publications which in most cases has been for naught to estab lish such a daily paper as would meet the requirements of a city of 50,000 population. The home papers are fully capable of placing Tonopah and its wonderful resources before the public, and as a class journal the Mining and Industrial Review will give a truthful report of all mining developments. The Pacific Coast Miner has had a representative here securing subscribers, which gives each week a column of mining notes reproduced mostly from the Bo nanza.

Although not so good as the preceding week, the game was marked by many interesting features. Owing to lack of practice the pitch ers were in pcxir form and the op posing batters fell onto their curves without mercy. The "Orange Blos soms" played a steadier game and outbatted their opponents. At a critical stage the "Bonanzas" expe rienced a severe attack of the rat tles giving the boys from the citrus belt a lead, which was never over come. In the ninth inning Roy Sun derland hit a long drive with three men on bases, completing the circuit amid the cheers of the Orphans. The final score ended 15 to 9 in favor of the Orange Blossoms. Another game will be played to-morrow, Sun day. People vs. McNeil. The preliminary examination of Wallace McNeil, charged with the shooting of C. C. Wells, came up before Justice Lindsay.

Hudgens have made the final payment of $18, (500 to the Wilson Bros., of Pine Grote, Esmeralda county, for the mines known as the Wilson group, the purchase price being $32,000. The mines have produced a large sum in gold bullion but have never been worked below the water level. It is the intention of the new owners to shortly commence work upon the property by running a tunnel to drain the water from the ground which will allow rapid sinking and development work. Married. P. E. O'Brien, one of Tonopah's prominent citizens, was united in marriage to Miss Minnie Green at the residence of the bride's parents in Esmeralda county last Wednesday. Mrs. O'Brien is a sister of Mrs. W. J. Sinclair of Tonopah.
