PUBLISHED IVIIT SATURDAY BY B3- A. 8KILLMAN. 8ATtJRDAY> MARCB 9. 1901. The eeoond inauguration of Presi dent McKinley on Monday laat is de scribed as having been the most demonstrative and pompons ever known in the history of the oonntry. A pamphlet of seventy-five pages containing the twelfth and thirteenth annual reports of the Nevada State Weather Service, for the years 1899 and 1900, has been reoeived at this offioe. 0. W. Friend is the Direc tor in oharge of this department in Nevada, and J. H. Smith of the United State Weather Bureau, is the Assistant Director. The first meetiog of the Cattle Growers Convention was called to order in Denver on Tuesday, Maroh 5, with three hundred and fifty dele gates in attendance, every State and territory west of the Missouri river being represented. At the openiDg session A. 0. Cleveland of Nevada delivered an address, whioh, the Associated Press dispatches state, evoked hearty applause. The last session of the Fifty-sixth Congress was brought to a dose on Maroh 4, the last thirteen hours be ing occupied by Senator Carter of Montana in a speech in opposition to the River and Harbor bill. Dur ing that length of time the Senator held the floor and prevented action being taken on the measure, thus literally talking it to death. NT ATE CAPITAL OOHNIP. Special Correspondence to the Skmtinii.. This is the forty-third day of the Twentieth Seasion, and aa the members reaeive compensation only for fifty days they are commencing to figure on how soon thsy oan gst through. Quite a number of bills hare been introduced in the past few days in both houses, and a resolution was adopted prohibiting the introduction of any more bills after noon of Thursday. Notwithstanding this precautionary measure, it seems hardly possible that the Legislature oan adjourn before the latter part of next week, as no appropriation bills have as yet been introduced, and the revenue question is still in stata quo. It oan be safely set down that the re peal of the Insurance law will not pass if open eipression of members in both Houses oan be taken as an indication. Raftioe and Stinson have been in evi dence lately with measures of more or less local application. Stinson is the author of a good general bill which passed the Assembly today. It makes * Sheriff's warrant good in any oounty in the State. Sheep legislation has bobbed np in the Assembly in these latter days to sc alsrming extent. Hitherto the Senste has been dubbed the "Sheep end of the Capitol." The reapportionmenl bill, which threatened earlier in the aeeaion to cauae ooneidereble friotion, ia now a lew by the Governor'# approval. The oredit for clearing thia bill aafely through the ehoale ie due to Reftioe, who took good oare that Eureka waa not loat in the ahoffla. Contrary to all expectation!, the revo lution oalling for a vote on the queetion of a Conatitutional Convention waa de feated in the Senate, ae waa aleo a reao lution oalling for the oanvaee of the vote of 1890, whioh, it will be remembered, the Sopreme Court refuted to oount for the reaaon, aa it atated, it waa not epe oifioally empowered to do eo, notwith atending the people at^bat time declared by a vote of two i to one in favor of a Conatitational Convention. Water, or irrigation legialation, ie at tracting oonaidereble attention in both houaee. Profeeaor Wileon of the State Univereity baa appeared before both Houeee for the purpoae of explaining the provieiona of the Wyoming irrigation law, whioh it ia propoeed to angraft on our oonetitution by meana of an amend ment. It ie oonoeded that the law ia the beat ever inaugurated for the eettle meat of the vexed water queationa which oooopy much of the attention of our court#, but aa it involvea the aurrender to the State of ell veeted righto, many are oppoeing it in the Senate, argnieg it ie “belter to bear the ilia we have,” etc. The reeolation haa paaaed the Aaaembly, but it ia hardly likely to paaa the Senate. The eitixeaa of Canon have extended iovitationa to the Legieleton to attend n banquet at the Arlington thia (Wednee day) evening, at whioh we may expect oonaidereble apellbinding. Ae the time drawe near for the oloee of the twentieth aeeaion it ie pooeible to at laaet practioally judge of ite work. It oea aafely be aatd that whatever mia take*, if any. it baa made, are honeat onee, ao anepieion of jobbery, bri bery or oorroption attaches to that body or any member of it. Io tbie reepeot, at leaat, it can claim to be nniqne ia Ne vada Legislature*. There baa been no lobby on any measure eo far aa tha writer ia aware, and while tome private bill* have been introduced, the member* have generally bean able to eee the "nigger io the woodpile." If they have not, it can not be laid to Speaker Van Dozer, who baa been very liberal in all bin rolioga io permitting foil debate on every qoeetion. X. X. X. Carson Citt, Nev., March 8, 1901. STATE NEWS ITEMS. Thomas Bryant has been appointed postmaster at Lamoille, Elko county, Vice J. B. tiheen, resigned. O. W. Council has een appointed postmaster at Berlin, Nye county, vice J. M. Thompson, resigned. The expense of caring for the Storey county indigents amounts to $1,000 per month, not including those in the oounty hospital. The Storey County Commissioners have fixed the tax rate for 1901 at $3 per $100 valuation. This is the same rate as for many years past. Over three feet of snow fell at De Lamar, Lincoln county, during the recent big storm, the heaviest fall ever known in that section. Wm. Markley, who slashed Will Lloyd with a knife at Ely last week, has been held to answer before the White Pine county Grand Jury. It is said that Reno owners of nickel in-the-slot machines will make a test of the law passed by the present leg islature which prohibits operating or playing at the machines. During the past season the exports of fish from Wadsworth, Verdi and Reno amounted to a huge sum, di vided as follows: Wadsworth, $18, 000; Reno, $9,000; Verdi, $5,718. Lovelock Tribune: It has been stated that at least fifty girls could find homes in this valley. It is a project for some enterprising man to bring out a carload of girls from the East and locate them here. Elko Independent: The Commis sioners have fixed the tax levy at $2 on the $100. One dollar of the levy goes to the State and the other dollar is for county purposes. This is a re duction of 20 cents from last year. The Elko Independent says there is another well developed case of small pox at Deeth, the patient being Miss Rainwater, and that the chances are the disease is very liable to spread, owing to the fact that a number of people called on the young lady before they knew the nature of her disease. Elko Free Press: Last week W. T. Smith sold all his thoroughbred cattle —except a few head—to an Eastern buyer. Monday John Sparks came up from Reno and bought the entire lot from the Eastern man, and the cattle will remain in Nevada. They are all choice, but Mr. Smith did not have the time to spare to look after them properly. OBITUARY. Andrew Peler Anderson. Andrew P. Anderson, who (or more then twenty yeera past had been a resi dent of Eoreka, died at hia home here on Wednesday morning, Marob 6, 1901, nt the age of 61 years, 2 months and 12 days. For many years Mr. Anderson had devoted his time to the development of his mining property in Newark Val ley, where he contracted miner's con sumption, as a result of whiob be was obliged a few months ago to give up ao tive work at that oooupation, and last Summer purchased the Jones house on Atlas Hill, where hs has since made his home. At the beginning of the present eebool yeas he was eleoted janitor of the Eoreka pnblio sobool building, and held that position at the time of his death. For several weeks the deoeased had been oonfioed to his bed with an attaok of pneumonia, whiob, in complication with other diseases, caused his death. Mr. Anderson was a native of Sweden, and leaves a widow to mourn bis loss. William Tttsoalnt. New* haa been received in Eureka of the death of William Tregoniog, which ooourred at Robineon, Utah, on Thurs day morning, February 28, of pneumo nia. The deoeaaed was formerly a resi dent of Ruby Hill, where he lived for nearly twenty years, leaving that plaoe about two year* ago to take up hi* resi danoe at Robineon. Mr. Tregoniog was born in Cornwall, England, and was 57 years of age at the time of his death. Ha leaves a widow, three daughters, Mrs. Joseph Treloar of Robinson, Mr*. D. H.

Prom a nominal vain* laat week of $94.50 per ehare the etook of the Spring V'alley Water Company of San Francisco dropped on Tneeday of this week to $91.50, or a falling off in that period of $3 a ehare. Thie etook has been a favorite invest ment with the people of Eareka and vioinity who have enrplne money, and these, at leaet, will be interested in knowing the canee for the decline in their eeoorities. Oo the report of the City Engineer the San Francisco Board of Supervisor* at their meeting on February 28 tiled the value of the Spriog Valley Water Com pany’s plant and other property at $22, 939,722, inoluding outside property not now in nse, and figoring on this basis it was deoided to allow the company a lamp sum of $80,000 a year for supply ing the city with water instead of $60 per hydrant as heretofore. To this it was proposed to add $20,000 oo condi tion that the oompany inorease thj size of its mains and place new hydrants at an estimated coat of $230,000. The company has served notioe on the Board that it will ignore the ordinance and refuse to make the changes in the mains as directed thereby, and as a re sult the City Attorney baa been instruct ed to render an opinion as to whether the Board has the power to compel the Water Company to make the changes for the purpose of properly protecting property from fire. How far the controversy may be car ried it is impossible to guess; but the prospect of a lawsuit was scented on the Stock Exohange, and the drop in the Water Company’s securities was the re sult.
