Carl Updike, who has been away from Tonopah for the past three months on a prospecting tour, re turned yesterday and was very weil satisfied with his trip. He has been through a number of camps during his absence, and has what looks like a very promising silver, lead and ga- lena proposition near Schurz, at the " head of the former Walker Lake reservation. "The property is located on Res ervation Hill," said he, "about six miles north of Schurz, and it looks very promising. We have not sunk to a very great depth, and have ore which goes twenty-two per cent lead. I went through Ramsey and other camps, and took in Brunswick, from which I think we will hear later. The district is south of Empire, and is producing considerable gold, silver and copper. Everything , has been taken up and quite a number of the properties are being worked. "We went through Buckskin, Sun rise and Yerrington.' Buckskin Is a good looking camp and there is quite a bit of work going on there. There is not much doing in Sunrise, that beine a new camp. Williams and Murphy of San Francisco have thirty- two claims there, and have been do ing a good deal of work. They have ore but It is as , yet of low grade Yerrington is not as lively as it was but they are opening up some very good prospects there. The Ludwig, Douglass and Bluestone are the big mines of the district." PERSONAL MENTION : L. L. Mushett has gone to Reno on business. Dave Holland returned from Gold field yesterday. F. Bowerman of Los Angeles is a guest at the Mizpah. Albert Stohr of Bolivar, New York, is a visitor in the city. W. H. Lang of Goldfield came over from the desert city yesterday In an automobile. H. E.

Henry Bartlett, editor of the Round Mountain Nugget, returned to Round Mountain yesterday morning, Hugh Brown, of the firm of Camp bell, Metson and Brown, returned from Carson yesterday with a bad cold. He remained at home yester day, but will be at his office today. , Walter J. Holden, who has numer ous mining interests in this country, and who has been in Tonopah for several months, was a passenger on last night's outgoing train, bound for Boston. Congressman George A. Bartlett , arrived home yesterday from Carson, where he had been to argue before the Supreme Court in the Manhattan Dexter case, . involving the title to Litigation Hill in Manhattan.. Ray Baker, Round Mountain "Scotty" and wife, A. H. Deahl of Manhattan and C. Lonkey of Cali fornia left yesterday afternoon for a trip to. the . Ubehebe mines, in which Jack Salsberry is largely in terested. Myron Champlin, who has been here from Round Mountain for sev- -eral days, will return this morning to the northern camp, as the guest of "Dry Wash" Tom Wilson in the lat ter's six-cylinder Franklin. Captain Thatcher will also be of the party. James Austin and C. K. Lord of Philadelphia, the former a director of the Tonopah and Goldfield road, and the latter a stockholder of the company, have been visiting this sec tion of the country for nearly a week, and will leave for the East tomorrow, Superintendent J. F. Hedden of the road, carrying them as far as Mina in his private car, Mizpah. The gentlemen have been the guests of Mr. Hedden since their arrival here, and have accompanied him all over the line. Both expressed themselves as well satisfied with the conditions here,' and with the appearance of the country generally. Alexander T. Johnson, general manager of the Spider and Wasp, is here from Wonder, and says that") while thai camp has felt the effect of the general depression, there has been considerable work going on all the time. The main shaft of the Spider and Wasp is down 160 feet and a forty- horsepower gasoline hoist has been installed, and is running in full blast. At the one hundred level, a crosscut has been started, and there will be a crosscut run at every station of one hundred feet. To the west of the main working shaft, and at a dis tance of 200 feet, an Inclined shaft is being sunk, and is now down fifty feet. Six feet of the rock at the bot torn of this shaft will average $75 a ton, and from the formation and the general character of the rock, Mr. Johnson is confident that they will run into ore of a higher grade. A crosscut is being driven from the bottom of the shaft, which is now fifty feet in length to the south, In the west drift from the bottom of the shaft, the vein is looking de cidedly better, carrying some ore of greater value. "The mine is looking very well indeed," said Mr. Johnson, "and the leasers, which have been inactive duringthe season of depression, are now beginning to return to work in earnest. The Reilly lease has done about'500 feet of work, and they are getting Into the neighborhood of the ore bodies. Leases Nos. 9 and 10 are down 100 feet, and have cross cut thirty-five feet south. They are now crosscutting north. Lease No, 20 Is down seventy-five feet and has crosscut thirty feet north, uncovering a vein twenty feet wide, of low grade ore. .' ' ' "Lease No. 11 resumed operations on the fifteenth, and it will be only a short time before they are all work ing again. While the town is very quiet. great many companies are pushing development work, and there is lots of assessment work being done. The general mining conditions look good, They are shipping some: pre out of the ckmp all the time. The Nevada Wonder, Jack Pot and the Vulture, are all shipping, and the Hidden Treasure has an ore body." ENTERTAIN FOR EASTERN VISITORS ANOTHER RAILROAD IS COMING SOUTH TEX RICKARD HAS INTERESTED SMELTER TRUST IN THE PROPOSITION. MRS. DAVIS IN . HER OWN DEFENSE WILL TAKE STAND TODAY AND GIVE HER VERSION OF SHOOTING. ! Mrs. D.' H. Jackson and her charm ing daughter, Miss Kathryn Jackson, entertained a few friends yesterday afternoon in honor of Mrs. Maguire and Miss Hotchklss of New York, mother and cousin of Mrs, W. A. Shockley. A very pleasant afternoon was spent with cards, music and re freshments for diversion." Mrs. Ma guire and Miss Hotchklss have been visiting Mrs. Shockley for a month or more, and are soon to return to the East. "Goldfield ia to have another rail way, and that means that it will ba the railroad center of the State. It means more than that in more ways Lthan one. It will give a market for the low grade product of the district direct to a smelter that is only 180 miles away, and that place is Ely, in White Pine county, where a smelter is being built that will have a dally capacity of 10,000 . tons. Silicious ores are needed for fluxing purposes. It will cut off the haul by the other roads that enter here 700 miles to a smelter, and reduce the time of travel for passenger travel to the Eastern cities 17 hours. - Connections will be made with the Nevada Northern at Ely, and that road connects with the Southern Pa cific and Western Pacific. The dis tance from Ely to Goldfield is 180 miles, according . to a preliminary survey, and there are no heavy ! grades along the line. The smelter trust Is back of the enterprise, but G. L. Rickard, better known as "Tex," brought the proposition about. "While I was in New York re cently," he said, "I met most of the big railway men and talked with them over the advisability of build ing a road from Ely to Goldfield, and all spoke favorably of the project. I also met the officials of the smelter trust the Guggenheims who are heavily Interested in the copper mines of Ely, and who also ar-J building the big smelter there. After several conferences with the railway magnates and the smelter people they came to the conclusion that the Idea suggested was a good one. Before the month is over there will be a number of representatives of all par ties interested in the construction of the new road in Goldfield. "The main thing they wanted to know was whether there was enough low grade ore here to warrant the construction of the road, and I be lieve they will be convinced there is plenty. We figured out that the con structton of the road would cost about $10,000 a mile, and the sniel ter officials assure me that the cost of hauling and treating the ore would not be' in excess of $4 a ton. It is, in my opinion, the greatest boost that Goldfield has ever had if the road is built. Ores that can not be mined at a profit now can be, and all of the mining centers of south western Nevada will ship their ores to Goldfield for transportation." . Goldfield Tribune. Kitty Broom was the most im portant witness for the defense yes terday in the trial of Mrs. Ruth Davis for the murder of her husband, "Devil" Davis, last June. Kitty, though the name might suggest it, is no lady. Kitty is a gemmun of the darktown fraternity, who used to "come in and go out" at the Eureka saloon,-during the lifetime of the lato "Devil" Davis. In fact Kitty might be said to be ah shlf'less pusson. He was shot in the foot by one of the bullets from the Davis woman's gun on the night of the murder, and RECEIVES CARLOAD OF FRESH FRUIT SOUTHERN NEVADA HAS FINE SUPPLY OF THE BEST TODAY.

Ruedy, a committee representing about 100 Mina citizens, that as soon as Dis trict Attorney Swallow returns from his investigating trip to Mina and makes report on conditions there, they il take action to regulate the dance halls and places of immoral resort In that city. . Mr. Burton was insistent that the license of the dance hall on the main street of Lida should be revoked im mediately, as it is, he says, within 800 feet of a school house. He said that 255 Southern Pacific employes are deeply indignant over , the pres ence of lewd women In houses in the respectable quarter, and that many citizens Have . threatened to leave Mina unless conditions are corrected. 9. Ruedy testified that he had been knocked down by one man because Ruedy insisted that his wife be re lieved of the presence of indecent women hanging about their home. Goldfield Tribune.

He wanted to go to the- hospital and called for a carriage to convey him and his wounded foot. But the carriage came not, neither did he go to the hospi tal; then he discovered that the wound was only a "supercilious" ono after all. Kitty has been shot five, times, but bullets seem to make .no more im pression on him than did Mr. Me- Carran's cross-examination. He has been shot once since Davis was kill ed, but he loomed up in court as chipper as ever. He was one of the defense's best witnesses. He told of Davis having threatened his wife and how he sat waiting for her one night with a saber to cut her head off. But neither the woman nor her head showed up that night, and both were spared. Kitty's testimony was dam aging to the prosecution. Mr. Mc Carran took him in hand on cross- examination. "Where were you," said the dis trict attorney, "on the afternoon of the nineteenth?" - ' In and out of the saloon, was the-answer. "Where were you on the night of the nineteenth?" "In the saloon; In and out." "Where were you on the twen tieth?" "In the saloon; In and out." "Where were you that night?" "In and out of the saloon." "Where were you on the after noon and the night of the twenty- first, the date of the shooting?" "In the saloon; in and out." "You were in there in the after noon, and again at night, and still in the morning when 'the shooting oc curred?" "Yes, sun." "Will you tell nie when you sleep?" "When I gets sleepy." ' Witness excused. Mrs. Davis, the defendant, will go on the stand this morning, and thaf will close the case for the defeu Arguments will be made in the af ternoon, and in all probability the case will go to the jury before court adjourns for the day. The Southern Nevada Mercantile Company evidently Is determined that the people of Tonopah are going to have the -best the market affords, and especially is this the case as far as fresh fruits and green vegetables are concerned. Yesterday there was another carload of the delectable stuff landed in front of the store, ".nd this morning there will be anouer fine display on the stalls of the store of most delicious fruits and all kinds of vegetables.
