IBTAU'I STATE CONTIOLLIR.
•» p. bits Visits CM Is «asst •r iiSraMiltB. Sam P. Davit, Nevada'* Stale Controller, a pent a few days in Salt Lake City last week for the purpose of ascertaining what steps were be ing taken in Utah in the direction of reforming the tax system of the Bute. As a result of an interview with him the Salt Lake Tribune of December 15 published the follow ing concerning the Ux valuations in Nevada: "Nevada valuations foot up about *25,000,000," said Mr. Davis, "with an average tax raU of *3.80, when it really should be a valuation of at least *100,000,000, with a Ux rate of about one dollar on the hundred. Most of the WesUrn SUtes have similar methods of assessing, which result in a seemingly high rate,which has the effect of keeping outside in vestmenU away. The Weet has made gTeat strides in development of late yean, but it has failed to secure proper oredit, owing to the bungling system of taxation.” Mr. Davis is endeavoring to sec are such legislation as will bring about a full valuation of taxable property and a corresponding lowering of rates of taxation. "This question,” says Mr. Davis, "is one in which every business man in the West is vitally interested.” Mr. Davis has a wide reputation as a humorous writer, gained though his long servioe as editor of the Car son Appeal. CeiTBST CASK DECIDED. The case of Dooley vs. Freuden thal came up before the District Court in Linooln county last week to deoide who was entitled to the certificate of election as State Senator from that county. It will be remembered that on the face of the returns Mr. Doo ley had a majority of six; bat iD the recount which was demanded the Countv Commissioners decided to connt a number of ballots which had been rejected by the Inspectors of Election, and in this manner Mr. Frendenthal was given an apparent majority of eight votes. This action was sustained by the District Court, and Mr. Freadenthal will represent Linooln oonnty in the State Senate for the next fonr years, unless that body sees fit to overrule that decis ion when the case oomes before it, as it undoubtedly will. ■ ETA DA IS COMUHESS. Nevada’s delegation in Congress are assigned to plaoes on the differ ent oommittees as follows; Senator Stewart is Chairman of the Committee on Mines and Mining, and also a member of the Commit tee on Claims, on the District of Colombia, on Indian Affairs, on Ir rigation and Reclamation of Arid Lands, and also of the Committee od Paeifio Railroads. Senator Jones is the Chairman of the Committee to Andit and Control Contingent Expenses of the Senate, and is also a member of the Commit tees on Commeroe, Finance, Pnblic Health and National Quarantine, and Relations with Canada. Congressman Newlands retains his position on the Ways and Means Committee. OFFICIAL VOTE OF NEVADA. The official canvass shows that at the last general eleotion 10,165 votes were oast in the State of Novada, of whioh the Bryan electors received a majority of 2,526. On the State tioket the resnlt was as follows: Congressman— F. G. Newlands (D).6.976 E. S. Farrington (B).1,190 Newland’s majority, 1,785. Sepreme Judge— A. L.

W.Booher <D)..5,151 Mark Averill (B>.1,107 Booker’s majority, 1,311. KlrnttoB'a Imlepeudeuee Hlu*. At a meeting held in London on De cember 7 the shareholders of the Stratton Independence Mining Com pany, whose property is located at Cripple Creek, Colo., a vote of no con fidence in the Board of Directors was passed, alter a heated session, during which the Directors were hooted and the words "scandalous,” and "dis graceful” were freely mingled with ac cusations of fraud. Late develop ments show a discrepancy of $12,000, 000 in the actual value of the ores handled, and the estimated value as represented by the early report of the old management. A cablegram from John Hays Hammond was read in which he desired to Have it made plain to the shareholders that his connec tion with the mine dated from after the shortage of ore reserves was dis covered. _ THE SCTBS Tt'SSIl.. rail tire af a Caleeaal Sebeose aa •be (aaalork. The Mining and Scientific Press thus condenses an interesting chapter in Nevada’s history: "Work on the Sutro, Nevada, tunnel began October 19, 1869. Connection was made with the Savage shaft Joly 8, 1878. The distance from the mouth of the tunnel to the Comstock vein is 20,016 feet. The tunnel was bored by ‘day’s work,’ $5 per day being the lowest wages paid workmen. The system or plan by which the owners were to be remunerated for the ex pense never fully materialized. The plan was to secure sufficient in royalty for the use of the tunnel by Comstock mine owners to produce profit. But by the time the tunnel reached the Comstock the bonanza days were about over.” _ Sapho ■lalaf Co. Incorporated. Articles of incorporation of tbe Sapho Mining Company were filed in tbe Distriot Court in Salt Lake City last week. Tbe capital stock is 875,000,divided into 300,000 shares of 25 cents each. The officers are: P. S. Keogh, President; Frank E. Wil son, Vioe-PreBident; P. C. Weber, Secretary and Treasurer, who with John Weber and Mrs. M. H. Easton form the Board of Directors. The corporation is based on the Sapho, Bob Tail and Cneeda mining olaims, which are situated near tbe Robust and Cbainman properties at Ely, White Pine county. A contract has been let for driving a tunnel 2% feet, and it is confidently eipeoted that before that distance is reached it will cut a four-foot vein of high grade gold and silver ore. Prosperona Lincoln County. The Pioche Record says Lincoln county is in better financial condition today than at any time within the past twenty-five years. Six years ago the floating debt of the county amounted to $32,000 and warrants could not be sold at 10 cents on the dollar. Today this indebtedness is entirely paid up, and there are funds in the treasury to pay all warrants on presentation. With mining opera tions going on in eleven different camps, and the coal finds at Grassy Mountain, together with the assured building of the Los Angeles & Salt Lake railroad across the county, a dis tance of 240 miles, the outlook for the future is bright indeed. STATE NEWS ITEMS. The Board of Aldermen of Denver, Colorado, has passed a bill licensing prize fights to the extent of $250 for each performance. Miss Celia McCarthy has resigned as Principal of the Tuscarora school and the Trustees have elected Prof. B. Ashurst of Lovelock to fill the va cancy. Deputy Sheriff Weldon of White Pine county has purchased the stage line between Ely and Hamilton, and took charge of the route about the first of the present month. Joe Sanguinet has sold his ranch and stock in Mound Valley, Elko county, to the Reardon Brothers. Mr. Sanguinet, it is said, will move to, Elko, where he will conduct a lodging house. The report o( the Third Assistant Postmaster-General shows that the to tal receipts from all sources of postal revenue during the year amounted to $102,354,579, while the expenditures reached $107,740,267. Frank McNamee, night bartender of tbe Commercial saloon, was the victim of a cutting affray in an Elko saloon one night last week, his assail ant being John McConibie. The trouble is said to have grown out of McConibie’s refusal to drink with Mc Namee. ____________ A New ¥«•»'• ttnlde. There is one book every one should make an effort to net for the new year. It contains simple and valuable hints concerning health, many amusing an ecdotes, and much general informa tion. We refer to Hostetter’s Alma nac, published by the Hoetetter Com pany, Pittsburg, Pa. It will prove valuable to any household. Sixty em ployes are kept at work on this valu able book. The issue for 1901 will be over eight millions, piinted in the English, German, French, Welsh, Norwegian, Swedish, Holland, Bohe mian and Spanish languages. It con tains proof of the efficacy of Hoetet ter’s Stomach Bitters, the great rem edjr prepared by the publishers, and is worthy of careful preservation. The almanac may be obtained free of cost at any druggist or general dealer in the country. NEWS SUMMARY.
