Ehnll the Hew Appointee Make HI* Home In EnreknT Within a few day* Governor Sadler will appoint a Judge (or the Third Jndi eial Diatriot to aocceed Hon. A. L. Fite gerald, who tehee hia place on the Su preme Bench at the firat of the year. Aa the time for the announcement of the name of the new Judge drawa near, the people of thia county are ahowing graat intereat in the matter, and the aoggeition of the poaeibilit) thet a man may be eelected who will mahe hia home at aome other town in the diatriot, haa been the meana of etirriog op eonaider able aoppreaaed excitement. Eureka, aa tha moat populous county io tba diatriot, baa more oaaea to coma before tbe Court than both tba other couotiee, and paya $50 a year more toward tba Judge's aalary than tba other two combined. Thia being tba case it would be a aerioua matter if tba Diatriot Judge were to be a raaident of tone other town. Tbe Governor, of oouraa, raalizea that Eureka ia entitled to tbe office, and tbe cbanoaa are that be will give tbia oooaideration due attention in maitirg tha appointment; bat in order that there may be no doubt aa to tbe in terest taken in the matter hare, it would aaam that a petition aaking for tha ap pointment of a Eureka man to tbe poai tion should be circulated without delay and forwarded to tbe Governor at Car eon. Such a petition would abow that tbe people of this place realize tbe ad vantage of having a resident Judge, and it should, and would, be signed by every man in the oounty wba would be given an opportunity. It ia being reported here that witbin tba peat few days Attorney-General Jones baa repurchased bis former home at Austin, and this la construed by some to mean that ha expects tbe appoint ment. Whether or not there is anything in this rumor to justify the belief that Mr. Jones will be made Judge of this district, it would seem that tbe proper step for tbe people of Eureka county to take is to notify the Governor at once ot their desire in the matter, and there ie no doubt that tbe great majority of tbe people of Nye county would, if given an opportunity, endorse the claim of Eu reka. Of late the people of Nye county have made arrangements to reoeive their supplies from Eureka, and the result will be that a mors friendly feeling will grow op between the two oountiss. ♦-■ THE HOLIDAY VACATION. first Term of school Closed oss Tbnrwilisy. The Eureka public school closed on Thursday of this week for the holiday va cation, and Principal Winfrey, Assistant Principal Jameson, and Miss Martha Hicka left Friday morning, the first two for lieno, and tbe latter for Sacramento, where they will spend their vacation.

All the lady teachers were remembered by their pupile and were the recipient) of many beautiful and useful presents, while each pupil in the sohool was presented with a photograph of their respective classes.

While hunting stock on Thursday of this week Ex-Sheriff W. H. Sweeney stopped that evening at a cabin in Antelope Val ley, twelve miles from Jim Morrison's place, which had previously been taken possession of by a stranger who was also searching for cattle. They started a fire, and after eating sapper Mr. Sweeney lay down to sleep in an adjoining room. Dar ing the night the cabin caught on fire, and in effecting his escape he was horribly burned, his face and hands being charred and blistered, and it is thought the sight of his left eve is entirely destroyed. He was brought to town late Friday afternoon, and as we go to press Dr. Keen is dressing his injuries. TO SOLVE water problem. Joe Saaery lateada Slaklac a Large Wall. Joe Saaery, who keepe the Eighteen Mile Station on the road to Hamilton, ■pent eeaeral daye in Eoreka thia week. He ia making arrangementa to aink a large well at hie plaoe in order that he may be prepared to water large banda of abeep in dry aeaaona like thia, and eati matee that he baa loat between $400 and $500 thia aeaaon by not haring water auffioient to aupply the demand. For many milea in all direotiona from bia place there are large traota of grazing landa on whioh there ia an abundanoe of white aage, and Mr. Sarery reaaona that with a known watar aupply at the Eighteen-Mile Houae the aheepmeo would keep their flooka in that ricinity, and that the rerenue derired from tha •apply of water from the Welle wbioh he propoeei to pot in would amount to a considerable figure. He now hoe one well on hit plaoe that is seventy-six feet in depth, and this he finds supplies a sufficient amount cf water for the teams that stop there. At the present time there are flooks of sheep numbering fully 70,000 being held on Fish Creek, • few miles west of Mr. Sarery’s plaoe, awaiting a snowfall on tbe ranges to the south, and until that •now comes it will be impossible for the sheepmen to venture in that direction. Ia the meantime tbs supply of feed has been praotioally exhausted along Fish Creek, and if Mr. Savory was prepared to furnish water in sufficient quantities the supply of feed in bis vioinity is great enough to maintain all these flooks for weeks. Three bands of sbesp owned by Mr. Maboney, the Elko sheep man, reaohed backwater on Tuesday of this week, the feed in the vicinity of Fish Creek, where they were ranging, having become so scarce that they oould no longer remain there. In moving them to the Winter feeding grounds the foreman is takiog a desperate chance because of tbe lack of water on tbe ranges, but it was the only alternative left, and it is hoped that a snowfall will soon solve the problem and insure the safety of tbe flooks for the re mainder of the Winter. Sam W healer returned to Eureka on Saturday laat and ainoe then haa been buay looking after hia abeep. He reporta that all the Hooke that were ranging in the vicinity of Fieh Creek have been driven into the mountaine in varioua di reotiona, where there ie aufficient enow to furniah the neoeaaary moiature, and that they will now have feed enough to laat perhapa eight or ten daya. But in making thia move the ownera are tak ing a riak, aa a heavy anowatorm in the mountain* would oertainly reault in great loaa. Unleaa enow falle on the rangee to the aouth within the next ten deya it will be found neoeaaary to drive all tran aieot Hooka out of thia aeotion of ooun try. Mr. Wheeler will leave for Reno on Monday to apend Chriatmaa with hia family, but, unleaa anow fella in tbe meantime, he will return immediately af terwarda to auperintend the removal of hia Hooka. Light anowa began falling in Eureka on F riday. TO Al» BAHTA CLAUS. Hobt. Haftiee Starts tor Bly With Holiday Ooods. A Urge amount of holiday goods and other freight consigned to Ely business men accumulated in the E. & P. depot at Eureka last week, and although dili gent efforts were made to seoure teams to oonvey it to its destination, no one could be found who was willing to make the trip at the regular prioe, viz: 2 oents a pound. On Wednesday Robt. Reftioe was offered 3 oents a pound if he would agree to deliver the goods at Ely by December 23, and he promptly aooepted the proposition, loading up his teams and starting for that plaoe on Thursday. The shipments aggregated 6,000 pounds, and inoluded a 350 lb-case of toys, holiday goods of various kinds, and quantities of wines, liquors, etc. If Mr. Raftioe had not come to the rescue Santa Claus would have found it difficult to fulfill his engagements at Ely, and a* a result the number of aohing hearts there would have been numerous.
