cial commission sent by him to

Goldfleld, Nev.
(By Associated Press.)
NEW YORK, Jan. 22. The price
movements In the general list of
stocks today were little more than
sympathetic reflections of the fluctu
ations of a few stocks In which proi
fessional operations centered. Pro
fessionals in fact had the market
largely to themselves. The failure
of minor banking institutions in
Pittsburg and Chicago, while recog
nized to be of small importance in
themselves, touched sentiment on a
sensitive spot In the financial body.
Bonds were generally irregular.
RENO, Jan. 22. Another holdup
participated in by the inevitable four,
took place this morning at the corner
of Fourth and Peavine streets, under
the very glare of an electric light, at
1 o'clock.
In this holdup Gus Shamp, a Tono
pah mining man. rooming at the
Richelieu hotel, was badly beaten and
rendered partially unconscious by
blows from a revolver, after which
$ 135 in money and $4000 in check?
were taken from him, and C. Callo
way narrowly escaped a similar fate
from the fourth brigand.-' who held
him up at the point of a revolver and
finding he had no money, made his
escape under pretext that he was
afraid of being held up himself.
1 Shamp was assisted to the Riche
lieu by Calloway, ' who also rooms
thefe, and his wounds were dressed
"by Dr. Walker. He was very weak
and dazed by the blow and could give
but an imperfect account, of what

' . .... :. . .IBy AMoctatefrejBj,,... J ..
NEW YORK, Jan. 22. the end of the second Thaw trial is
fast approaching. This was Indicated late today when Dr. Chas.
Wagner, first of the alienists to be called by the defense, took the
stand for his preliminary examination. Anthony Comstock, vice
president of the Society for the Suppression of Vice, had been
heard as a witness earlier In the day, and Mrs. William Thaw,
mother of the defendant, had completed her testimony. A kin-
dergarten teacher who had charge of Harry Thaw as a lad of
six, also testified, and the day was marked by a long stride tow-
ai d the conclusion of the celebrated case. Today the codicil of
Thaw's will was placed in evidence, but the will itself was tem-
porarily; ruled out, because of insufficiency of evidence showing
its custody since 1905. Mr. Littleton said he would supply this
tomorrow or Friday.

More Pipe for Round
Mountain Hydraulic
Henry Bartlett came in last night from Round Mountain, ac-
companied by Cashier Olive of the Round Mountain Banking
Corporation. They brought with them a nice bai of bullion,
which will be on its way to the mint this morning. Mr. Bart-
' lett brings good news of the progress of the Round Mountain
Hydraulic Mining Company, as well as of the rest of the camp.
"There was a meeting of the directors of the hydraulic com-
pany the other night," said Mr. Bartlett, "and an additional
20,000 feet of pipe was ordered that we may proceed faster with
the work. We have gone to bed rock with the giants, and have
found the gold there in greater quantities than on the surface. It
is more than gratifying to observe this, and we have demonstrat-
ed the success of the proposition.
"The camp in general is looking better than ever. On the
Solid Gold lease of the Round Mountain Daisy, they are sacking
ore, and the property grows richer as it goes down. We are not
saying much about Round Mountain, but we are going right along
with the work of sinking, hoisting, and now, sacking."

partment was defective. Lantry de

ing the hose.
