SATURDAY, AUGUST 22.... 1903 "THE HOLY CITY." How Its 8lngring Affected a Number of Prisoners. Thirty men, red-eyed and dishev eled, lined up before a judge of the San Francisco police court. It was the regular morning company of ''drunks and disorderlies." Some were old and hardened, others bung their heads in shame. Just as the momentary disorder attending the bringing in of the prisoners quieted down, a strange thing happened. A strong, clear voice from below began singing: Last night I lay a-sleeping, There came a dream so fair. Last night! It had been for them all a nightmare or a drunken stupor The song was such a contrast to the horrible fact that no one could fail of a sudden shock at the thought the song suggested. I stood in old Jerusalem, Beside the temple there, the song went on. The Judge had paused. He made a quiet inquiry. A former member of a famous opera company, who was well known all over the country, was awaiting trial for forgery. It was he who was singing in bis cell. Meantime the song went on; and ev ery man in the line showed emotion. One or two dropped on their knees; one boy at the end of the line, after a desperate effort at self control, lean ed avainst the wall, buried his face against his folded arms, and sobbed, "Oh, mother, mother!" The sobs, cutting to the very heart the men who heard, and the song, still welling its way through the court room, blended in the hush. At .length one man protested. "Judge," said he, "have we got to submit to this? . We're here to take our punishment, but this ". He, too, began to sob. It was impossible to proceed with the business of the court, yet the Judge gave no order to stop the song. The police sergeant, after an effort to keep the men in line, stepi, ped back and waited with the rest. The song moved on to its climax: Jerusalem! Jerusalem I Sing, for the night is o'er! Hosanna in the highest! hosanna for evermorel In an ecstasy of melody the last words rang out, and then there was silence. The judge looked into the faces of the men before him. There was not one who was not touched by the song; not one in whom some better impulse was not stirred. He did not call the cases singly a kind word of advice, and he dismissed them all. No man was fined or sentenced to the workhouse that morning. The song had done more good than punishment could possibly have accomplished. Youth's Companion.. Measuring the Creeks. Ralph S. Hawley, of the United States Geological Survey, came down from Bishop Wednesday for the pur pose of measuring the flow of the water in the creeks of this vicinity, and in the various ditches taken from the river in this end of the valley. There is quite a force of men In the field in this country employed in mak ing measurements and surveys, and it seems piobable that something will be done towards the' conserva tion of water by storage and other wise. Mr. Hawley returned to Big Pine yesterday. Invo Independent. Coming to Tonopuli. J. S. Cain and T. E. Therebreth left for Tonopah Wednesday. They intend to Investigate Tonopah's re quirements for electric power. The two plauts now under construction ou Rush and Lee Vining creeks are expected to furnish 30,000 horse power, more than enough for all en terprises within a radius of 100 miles. Bodie Index- Miner. IlamlMbtirg Strikers Busy. It is said that nine out of every ten of the miners who were employed at Randsburg before the strike are working either on their own lease or for others who have leases. There is no suffering among the miners or their families. TALK OF A MERGER. Plan to Consolidate Tonopah Mtuea Hot Uecu Given Up. Supt Fred. Davis of the New York Tonopah mine, of Tonopah, is in the city on a brief business trip, and while he would not admit as much, it is believed that his mission here at this time has something to do with a consolidation scheme in which the New York is included. The movement has been on foot for some little time. Recently the stock holders of the Salt Lake-Tonopah company were called together to consider the matter of going into the propbsed merger, but not being sat isfied with the terms named by the parties interested in the other prop erties, the proposition received , a cold reception. Mr. Davis Lelieves that the Frac tion, Tonopah City and Gold Hill companies will surely go into the combination, and is also quite satis fied that proper influences may yet be brought to bear on the Salt Lake company. The union of the mines mentioned would make one of the largest as well as one of the most valuable in the camp. Deseret News. Bonding Properties. The Manvel correspondent of the Los Angeles Mining Review says: "the reported sale of the Copper Chief and Mobile at Good Springs, Nevada, is not correct. Walter Os borne, agent of the O'Meara-Lynch company of Salt Lake City and Tono pah, has bonded them. That is all." MISCELLANEOUS. BIDS FOR COUNTY PRINTING.
