TOXOPAH DAILY BONANZA, TOXOPAH, NEVADA, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 1909.
MARATHON RACE WILL BE RUN ON FEBRUARY 14TI1 That the Bonanza's Marathon race will be run on Sunday, February 14, Is now an assured fact, and more names are being added to the list of prospective champions. One thing must be distinctly understood by those who desire to engage in this contest, and that is no "champs" will "be allowed to participate. The event Is only for amateurs, and especially young men, and was gotten up for the sake of the athletic-loving people of this ' city. The handsome cup which will be tendered the winner. was received from the engraver s hands yesterday and is now on ex hibltion in the oluce of the Marathon Race Editor, where those who desire to call and inspect the handsome work of art are at liberty to do so. The third entry for the contest was received early yesterday morning. In fact the entry blank was shoved un der the door of the M. R. E.'s room while he slept. It was from Jim McQuillan, who signed himself the champion of Candaleria and Soda vllle. Talk about conceit. We don't know what Jim's purpose is, but sup pose he Is trying to bluff the young er racers from taking part. It is true that Jim was the champion of Soda ville In the old days when that camp was In its prime.. The long distance races then were not called Marathon races. Everything was sitnply a race, even if it was from 100 yards to 100 miles. The time that Jim won the championship is a part of the history of Sodavllle Itself. Jim had beat everything in sight and as a last re It's NOT TO SAVE $100 Every Month Though January has passed annual statements of foreign corpora tions can be' published and filed in February (leaving a possible fine of $10 for January only.) Foreign corporations that fail to comply with the requirements of the statutes are subject to a flue of f 100 for EACH MONTH in which they ore delinquent. Those who have not published their statements are reminded . that any District Attorney may claim the fine by Instituting suit against the offending corporation. If the report is not advertised and filed during the month of February, the company becomes subject to a fine of another hundred dollars, and so on for every month in which it is delinquent. Here is the law on the subject, which will repay careful study: r- Chapter CVIII. foreign corporations doing business in the state of Nevada to publish an naul statements. . Approved March 28, 1901. Section 1. All foreign corpora tions doing business in the state of Nevada, shall, during the month of May this year, 1901, and in each succeeding year in the month of Jan uary, publish a statement of their last years' business in some dally newspaper in the state of Nevada for the period of one week. Sec. 2. The secretary of the com pany publishing the statement shall file a copy with the several assessors of the state of Nevada. Sec. 3. Any corporation coming within the provisions of thi sact Who shall neglect or refuse to file a state ment as required by section 1 of this act shall be liable to a penalty of $100 for each month that the pub lished statement remains unfiled with the several ' assessors of the state, . t Sec. 4. Any district attorney in the state is competent to sue to re cover this penalty, or the attorney general. The first county suing 'through its district attorney shall se cure the penalty. It will thus Im Nwn that there is a suit liability attaching, to a fail are to file throe ivportK. The Bonanza furniMhes forms to comply with the above law for advertising purpose and attends to filing same with the fourteen assoJor of tlie state. Thoi intrrenteil are Invited to correspond with this office at on e. sort sent a challenge to Benny Rosenthal at Hawthorne. The terms of the contest was that each was to start frpm bis home town and finish at Luning, Which Is; twenty-five miles distant from both places. The 6tart was made on a morning of a Fourth of July amidst a crowd of several hundred Indians, who bad gathered to witness the great feat of McQuil lan's. The telegraph operators at Sodavllle and Hawthorne started the racers promptly at 9 o'clock in the morning. At 9:15 a freight train left Sodavllle and a few minutes later a handcar left Hawthorne. When the freight reached Luning Jim crawled from under one of the flat cars just in time to see Benny come driving up on the handcar. Of course each accused the other of cheating and as Jim was the largest he won. Hence his title, "Champion of Sodavilie." The second entry yesterday was that of County Commissioner W. T, Cuddy. Cuddy also hasareputation that is for foot racing. He was go- in gto run a race last summer with Judge Brissell and even ordered a pair of racing tights for the' affair. But the day the race was to be run itrained and the affair was postpon ed until the following Sunday. When that date arrived the county commis sioner developed a pair of kidneys in his feet and couldn't even walk. He also says he used to show some class when he lived at Silver City, Nevada. In fact he says he beat every Indian in that neighborhood that is beat them racing. Mr. Cuddy also made a good run in the last political cam paign and on account of this thinks he should be allowed to participate in the. Marathon race. As he en closed a 5 check for his cartoon he will be in the start and will be des ignated among the bunch by a "No 5," which will be pinned on his back Too Late An act requiring OITflMe of JoT.tewisaif Klondyke We While engaged in oiling the gaso line-engine, at the pump station at Klondyke Wells yesterday morning, T. , Lewis received injuries which caused his death an hour later. Lewis had only been at the sta tion a few days, and was engaged in his customary duties when his jump er caught in the friction wheel and he was revolved through the air about twenty times until his weight caused the machinery to stop. His cries attracted several men of the section gang who live there, and they immediately released him from the wheel and made him as com fortable as possible. In the mean time a dispatch was sent to A. J. Chambers, roadmaster of the Tono pah and Goldfield railroad, who was in Goldfield, and he immediately left for the scene with Dr. Dunham of that city. Lewis was placed on a freight train,, but the return journey to Goldfield had harly commenced before he passed away.
