SATUKDAY, OCTOHEK 24,.. 1903 t ITIZKXS' ASSOCIATION. (icm ral CiimiUr Provlilcn lor Temporary Sanitation. The Citiwiis' Association, with its committers, is taking an active in terest, in the municipal welfare of ronopah. On last Monday night the irpneral committee held a meeting. The first subject which engaged the attention of those present, as being the one of most immediate importance to the community, was the lix'al san itary condition. The purchase and distribution of 500 pounds of chloride of lime was ordered and Harry Manon and James Sullivan were appointed health inspectors and charged with tlie duty of properly disinfecting places needing it. The general committee also re ceived the report of the executive committee upon the best method of incorporation. The substance of the executive committee's recommenda tion was that when the time for it corporation arrived, Tonopah should adopt the charter already ratified by the state legislature, as this char ter, framed by Key l'ittman, is said to provide a most economical and liberal city government. The gen eral committee adjourned to meet again on next Tuesday, October '27th, at which time it will adopt the re port of the executive committee and then make its recommendation in turn to the Citizens' Association. liOII ItV.NI M 'sTAHBKD. Hilly Slovens I'lourfslH'H Knife Willi Serious CoiiNiiieii's. Hob Hynum, former proprietor of the Mint saloon, was seriously cut on Sunday afternoon last by Hilly Stevens, a blacksmith apprentice. As a result Iiynuin is now confined to lied under the care of Dr. l'iper, while Stevens is under arrest for the offense, iiynum's wound is in the right side of the chest, near the shoulder blade. The cut is about three inches deep and three inches long, and while the victim is btill in a critical condition, it is thought that j the worst effect of his wound will be a permanent injury to his right arm. The assault upon Hynum occurred about 4 o'clock in the afternoon and it seems that no quarrel or disagree ment preceded it. According to eye witnesses, Stevens was drunk at the time he committed the assault. He had been threatening the other men in the Mint saloon, when without a word of warning he stabbed Hynum and then fled fully two miles before he was overtaken and arrested by Deputy Sheriff L. P. DejPuy. It is said that the men were friends prior to the cutting affray and that Hynum lias expressed no desire to prosecute. oitii:iti:i ki:m:.si:i. Another Participant in Chinese ICIot Discharged. After a hearing before Justice Lindsay, Edward Schillinberger was dismissed on the charge of complicity in the murder of Chong Hing Lung. The prevailing opinion is that Schil liiiberger was one of the chief insti gators and participants in the recent riot which culminated in the death of the aged Chinaman, and despite his own confession which was brought out in the testimony, Justice Lindsay heid that the evidence was not sufficient. I'inte Celebrating. The I'mte Indians near Winnemucca have begun their fall dance and fes tival, which is to last five days.

In the society column of the San Francisco Hullelin of the 18th Inst, appears the following regarding the engagement of a well-known citizen of Tonopah: At the end of the year a wedding which will be one of the features in the social holiday calender, is that which will take place between Miss Rebecca Raphael, a well-known and highly esteemed member of the local elite and Mr. Clay Peters, a promi nent mining man of this city. The wedding ceremonies will be held at the home of the bride's mother, Mrs. Julias Raphael, 1103 Golden Gate av enue, where the prospective bride and groom will also tender a betrothal reception on Octorber 25th to their many friends. Miss Raphael is a daughter of the late Julius Raphael, one of Stock ton's former leading merchants. She is a young woman of great beauty and many accomplishments who is a lead ing figure in the social circles of San Francisco and is one of a quintette of sisters who commanded much attent ion for their beauty and talents a few years ago. Mr. Peters is well known through out the coast as a mining promoter and operator and was largely instru mental in the upbuilding of the Tono pah district, where he is heavily interested in a number of enterprises, including the Montana Tonopah and MacNamara companies, with which he is connected in an official capacity. Mr. Peters has also extensive real estate interests in Reno, Nev., where he and his wife will make their future home. OltAM) .JCKY MIX CP. linger ami Hice Forget to Cer tily as to Jurors Impanelled. In these dull days we could ill afford to dispense with the unique brand of comedy with which some of our county officials so generously fur nish us in the solemn disch.t.-ge of their official duties. The latest is the grand jury tangle at Helmout, in which County Commissioner Peter Rice and Clerk William Enger appear as co-stars in a most original and humorous skit. It seems that the two gentlemen named are the ones intrusted with the duty of drafting the requisite twenty four grand jurors. Each draws twelve names from a box in which the names of eligibles are re corded on separate sheets of paper. When court convened at Relmont on the 12th of this month, the grand jury routine had proceeded thus far when the jury's session commenced. Criminal matteis were investigated, and, among other tilings, Frank Lucha (Smith) was indicted for mur der. At this point, it developed that the two worthies who had drawn the jurors' names from the box had for gotten to make the required affidavit as to the twelve each had impanelled. As a consequence, the proceedings of the body were adjudged illegal, and now it must all be done over. Verily, some of Nye county's ollicials tran scend all precedent. Congestion of Ilrain CaiisesDeath Mrs. Noyes, the wife of Archie Noyes, a miner employed at Gold Mountain, died at Mrs. Hertrand's lodging house, on Upper Main street, Sunday last of congestion of the brain. Mrs. Noves had only been in Tonopah a few weeks, having come from Nevada City, Cal., where her relatives reside, and where her body has been sent for burial. Mr. Noyes accompanied his wife's remains to California. MISCELLANEOUS. L. II. CONNELLY, NEVADA ART DECORATIVE CO.
