EDITORIAL COMMENT THE BONANZA'S "SCOOP. " The Daily Bonanza yesterday recorded a 'scoop." In journalistic parlance, a scoop is an item of exclusive news, and the Daily Bonanza publishes scoops 'every morning. But this particular bit of exclusive news has proved very annoying to some people, and it is to these people that we are addressing ourselves. The scoop referred to was the publication that President Rickey had been subpoenaed to appear before the Grand Jury this morning. This was one of the most important items of news that has been pub lished iu connection with the bank situation. It was annoying to the Evening Moon that that paper did not get the news, but it was not at all ' surprising. The only local news that that sheet ever prints is that which first appears in the Daily Bonanza, in its chagrin over the scoop, the Moon gives credit for the Bonanza's exploit to the office of the Dis trict Attorney. It must be so, argues the editor, for none of the mem bers of the Grand Jury were permitted to talk, and so, it must have been the District Attorney who "peached." ' Now, we do not propose to give the authority for the story in the Daily Bonanza, but anybody who knows anything about the newspaper business, would not have been guilty of issuing such a statement. In the first place a subpoena is a matter of record, which is placed on file with the County Clerk, and the designated place from which subpoenas are served is the Sheriff's office; in the next place the fact that Mr. Rickey was served was public knowledge in Carson, and in the next place the fact was common street talk in Tonopah Wednesday afternoon. The Moon can take its choice as to which ot the sources mentioned, the Daily Bonanza got its information; so can anybody else. The Moon does the Bonanza the compliment of copying the Grand Jury story last night and this is the first piece of news that the Moon has had about the banks, for reasons best known to itself and ninety per cent of the people in Tonopah. The story did not come from th e District Attorney's office, nor did we get it from Mr. McCarran. It wa s published because ot the fact that the Daily Bonanza is a wide awak e newspaper, which makes a habit of getting the news and publishing it f or the benefit of the reading public. In the article of the Moon, there is a n inspired paragraph, added to its expression of grief and humiliation f or not getting the news of the day, which everybody else had. In thi s paragraph, the fact is bemoaned that when District Attorney McCarra n requested the County Commission ers to call upon the State Bank and Trust Company and the Nye and Ormsby County Bank to make good the funds of the county on de posit in those institutions, that that matter was made public in the Daily Bonanza. Quite right; every, piece of news of interest and benefit to the community is published in the Daily Bonanza. But the Moon again squeals about the matter having been a secret. See what the Moon says about it: " "It was a real star chamber session. But, what a surprise was in store for the county commissioners and other officials who attended the meeting when they read the whole affair in public print. It is learned that the district attorney was chided at that time for seemingly a breach of faith. There was no startling result. The bank furnished the .security and that was all there w.is to it." For the benefit of the writer, and the man who inspired the fore- -going romance, we will inform both, and one of them knows it very well, that there is no such thing as a star chamber session 1 of the county -commissioners. All the proceedings are public, and everything done at a meeting is a matter of public record. The communication of the District Attorney is on record, just as it was when the Daily Bonanza published it. We doubt very much if anybody chided Mr. McCarran re garding this matter. "There was no startling result," (quoting the ar ticle). No? The very result sought was obtained. The money of the county was made good and it is very doubtful if such a startling result would have been obtained had it :idt been for the work of District At torney McCarran. t We are not defending Mr. McCarran, for we fail to see where any action of his needs any defense. But we are commending the zeal and energy which he is displaying in the discharge of his duty to the peo N pie. With -regard to any attack that may be made on him, Mr. McCar ran is quite able to take care of himself. REQUEST REMOVAL OF UNDER SHERIFF "It is further ordered that the sheriff be desired to make a change in the office of under sheriff." The above resolution passed unan imously by the county commissioners in session yesterday, Is primarily the result of a clash between Under Sher iff Bart Knight and the commission ers over the appointment of deputy sheriffs for the new town of Raw hide. Tuesday the commissioners appointed Mike Cahalan and H. M. McDonald to take charge of the po lice affairs of that place. Wednes day morning Under Sheriff. Bart Knight appointed and sent to Raw hide, Deputy Sheriffs Jack Grant and Tom Cullum. As a further result of the fuss, the commissioners rec ommended that Jack Grant and Tom Cullum be dropped from the pay roll February 10th. District Attorney Swallow said last night that the order merely indi cates the wish of the commissioners, and that they have no power to force the issue should Sheriff Ingalls re fuse to comply with the order. The commissioners say that the appointment of Cahalan and, McDon ald to the Rawhide positions was in accordance with the wishes of Sher iff Ingalls. Not knowing this, Knight made the other appointments and sent the men to Rawhide yesterday. This caused the mix-up, and Knight said that if he could not prove that he did not know of the agreement between the commissioners and the sheriff, he would resign. Goldfield Tribune.

IS OF HER DIAMONDS GOLDFIELD, Feb. 6. The Coun ty hospital was held up at 2 o'clock this morning by two masked men who secured over $2500 worth of diamonds and jewelry. Mrs. Grace M. Hoyt, the night nurse, was in charge at the time, She heard two knocks at the door and. responding, was confronted with two revolvers In the hands of two masked men, the smaller, one of whom wore a grey overcoat and blue overalls. Mrs. Hoyt was ordered to her room, where she was compelled to He down on the bed. One of the men threw a cover over her head and then began to ransack the room first tearing a pair of diamond ear rings from the ears of the nurse. The men seemedfamlliar with conditions for they lost no time in searching fo? plunder. On leaving, they warned Mrs Hoyt not to utter a word or use the telephone, saying that they would wait outside the door for fifteen min utes. Mrs. Hoyt, as soon as the men disappeared, dashed for the door and saw them tearing down the street. Then she sprang to the telephone and gave the alarm. She says she will be able to recognize both' of the rob bers without any trouble.

TO CONCENTRATE ON THIS COAST WASHINGTON, Feb. 6. The at tention of the War Department has been called to the fact that captains of two companies of National Guard have violated the articles of war by announcing that they are liable to bo called to defend the Pacific coast. The War Department will not in sist on the punishment of the Ohio captains. It explains the telegram aa one of the necessities of the pres ent operations to bring the National Buard completely under Federal control. War Department officials admit that a tremendous force of militia is to be concentrated along the Pacific coast, beginning in April. Said a diplomat today: "The Unit ed States is preparing for defense. Japan Is preparing for war. There probably is some relation between these two circumstances."

This old world Is run on a system, a Bystem that has been .working for millions of years and when puny man gets It into his grey matter that he can buck that system, there is mighty liable to be a crash. The great deposits ot gold '. and silver were made by the same system and even though Nature has a peculiar way of hiding her golden treasures it occasionally happens that puny man "gets next" and then there is a chance to grab a slice of that treasure. Recently our engineer discovered about the best thing we know of, and as It was called the Pedro group, we called it the Pedro Miue. Pedro, we are told, means five, and we rather think it true in this case, that is, five ' mines in the Pedro group. So far we have only talked about one of them. That one is enough to talk about for a long time yet. The stock is selling so low that there really should be only one mine, but the five are included for the same price the price of one. kx;li:v-thi.miii.i: company. MUST HAVE HAD A VIVID IMAGINATION TACOMA, Wash., Feb. 6. For several evenings strange red and green lights have been seen at high altitudes at Tacoma, Kent and other places along Puget Sound and as far south as Gray's Harbor. Yesterday while a Northern Pacific train was waiting for a drawbridge in the Ta coma yards, the engineer saw a strange object, very big, in the air and somewhat obscured by the heavy weather. He called the conductor's attention and finally several passen gers saw It. Tourists who had field glasses de clared the object to be an airship and said it carried a Japanese flag. That it is a Japanese airship, carry ing spies who are studying the coast topography, is the firm belief of many people. TO Itl'ILI) IH; SCBMAKIXK. WASHINGTON', Feb. 6.
