miusRXD ivset MitinAt it E- A . S k: I L LMAN. 8ATCBDAT. JTLT 13, 1»01. There ia a wicked and unabashed newspaper man in the East who, after careful observation, says “a woman can spend as much on a bathing suit as an opera cloak, but she can show a good deal more for her money.” __ The Virginia Report of July 9 aays it is assured on excellent authority that Peter Breen, Esq., of this county, will be a candidate next year for Dis trict Judge of the district comprising Eureka, Lander and Sye counties. An evidence of tbe coneolidsting and concentration tendency of tbe timee is given by tbe new develop ments in tbe hotter making business in Nebraska. All tbe creamery com panies operating north of tbe Platte river have consolidated and will aban don their preeent plants and establish s mammoth one in Omaha, to be sup plied with cream brought in from the skimming stations maintained throughout the territory occupied. Tbe Omaha creamery will have a capacity of 3,000,000 pounds of batter annu ally, valued at $600,000. An innovation has been msde by the Southern Pacific Company in the method ol procedure at accidents and in rendering first aid to the injured at train wrecks. General Manager Krutechnitt, of San Francisco, ssys that on all limited trains emergency csses have been placed in charge of employeee, who are from time to time given instructions as to the use of the contents. F.mployees at many sta tions where there are no surgeons in tbe immediate vicinity are also sup plied with emergency cases, contain ing such supplies as can be used by a layman in rendering first aid to the sick or wounded. Tbe Santa Fe Railroad Company has served on competing roads formal notice that a 40 per cent redaction on freight rates between Chicago and the Missouri river will go into effect on the 15th of the present month. The reasoo given for this redaction is that other parties to tbe agreement have not kept faith. The Santa Fe will re quire as a condition of entering upon a new agreement a deposit of money as a guarantee that the rates agreed upon shall be maintained. The freight manager of the Santa Fe says that the business of the road has for some time been gradually decreasing, and at present its share of freight busi ness is only about 5 per cent of the whole. Such a condition of affairs, be contends, could only be caused by secret rate cutting by the Santa Fe’s competitors. The Philadelphia Press is authority for the statement that over $1,000,000 was spent in corrupting members of the last Pennsylvania Legislature, which is distinguished as the most venal and unscrupulous over known in that State, and hence in the Union. Votes on behalf of a Quay organiza tion of the Legislature, and then for the various “ripper” and franchise grab bills, are said to have command ed as high as $35,000 each in cases, and $10,000 and $20,000 were common payments. Many of the legislators return home with independent for tunes as a result of the session’s work. The gang which bought them at such handsome prices will reimburse itself from the franchise and other steals im posed on the State and people thereof. It is an amazing situation which yet, however, promises to stir the people into revolt. At the informal meeting of the Coun ty Commissioners with Controller Davie and Lieutenant-Governor Judge in Eureka last Tuesday evening, a discussion of revenue matters gen erally was indulged in, during which Mr. Davis made the statement that while Governor Sadler was in San Francisco recently he was ap proached by an official of the Pullman Palace Car Company, who asked him why the statement was being made that the Pullman Company paid no taxes in Nevada. To the Governor's smiling inquiry as to whom the com pany had been paying its taxes, the official replied, “ To the Central Pacific Railroad Company.” This official fur ther stated that the Pullman Company had never failed to pay its taxes each year in Nevada in this manner. Mr. Davis added that the State Revenue Board was now considering the best mode of procedure for the recovery of the back taxes due this State from the Pullman Palace Car Company, which, it is now claimed, have been paid into the bands of the Central Pa cific Railroad Company. ■BflBA ptM CBIIUT. !«■» JoariV.

Reno Ledger. President Hays of the Southern Pa cific Company is making it very clear that be means what be says. He stated that the company would be out of politics when be took charge of af fairs. He has kept bis word. The company is out of politics, and those in Nevada who have depended upon the road for their political pall are now sadly wondering what will happen next. _ Beao Jamal. Nevada is likely to hsve the bene fit of the services of Harry Flannery again in shaping her political course. The Southern Pacific Company will, on the first of August, close all of the bars on its ferry boat* running between Oakland and San Francisco. Harry has control of the bars on the narrow gauge line, and the temperance move ment on tbe part of the S. P. will throw him out of a job. \irglnl» Report. Richard Y. Fitzgerald, youngest son of Judge Fitzgerald, is to marry Mias Susan Walker, daughter of Admiral Walker. Mr. Fitzgerald was raised in Eureka, but is now a member of a New York law firm to which John G. Car lisle, ex-Secretary of the Treasury, be* longs. With this announcement and that of the coming marriage of Adju tant-General Corbin to Miss Edith Pat ton, formerly of Gold Hill, it would seem that a scheme is on foot for the State of Nevada to wed the entire army and navy—or as much of it as is worth the while. T«Mh«n far the Philippines. The Virginia Chronicle Bays: Father Tubman has been authorized by Judge Taft, civil governor of the Phil ippines, to send the names of appli cants for positions as teachers in those islands. The names of the applicants so far are Misses Abes Comeford, Eliz abeth and Maggie Fitzgerald, Louis Hinch, Gertie Pyne, Minnie Pettinger and Messrs. T. J. McCarthy and Harry James. The applicants must send through Father Tubman their certificates signed by ex-officio Superintendent of Softools, George D. Pyne, and when accepted must sign a contract to re main on the islands three years. The salaries range from $900 to $1,200 per year paid by the government. P'ree transportation by rail to San Francisco and passage on troop transports to the islands is furnished. The signers of the contracts will be required to pay one dollar per day for their board on the transports, which will be refunded to them on arriving at their destina tion. Discrimination la Allscad. San Francisco Chronicle: P. L. Flan nigan, a prominent sheep raiser of Ne vada, brought suit in the United States Circuit Court yesterday against Sierra county and Aug. C. Busch as its License Collector for a restraining or der to prevent the collection of $3,000 in license tax on sheep pastured by him in that county, lie alleges that 100,000 acres of land in Sierra county have been leased by him on which to pasture 100,000 sheep, and that by an ordinance passed by its Supervisors on May 30,1900, the county seeks to tax him at the rate of 10 cents a head for the sheep. It is claimed to be special legislation, as no grazing tax is as sessed on horses or cattle and none on the sheep owned in the county. The complaint alleges that this is a dis crimination against sheepmen outside the county, and an order has been issued for the defendants to appear on August 5 and show cause why an in junction should not issue. N. E. Linsley, a mining engineer writes a letter to the Mining and Sci entific Press in which he proposes the establishment of a pioneer prospect ors’ home, to be located in California not far from the place where the first gold was found. He believes that the hearts of the wealthy mining men are not so hard that they would not be touched by an appeal for the old pros pector and that they would contribute enough to establish an institution that would keep in comfort several hun dred of the old men who are now with out means of support, although in their time they have been instrumental in the production of millions—yes, billions—of dollars’ worth of gold and silver. _ The Wells Herald has changed hands. Phil S. Triplett, formerly of Elko, is now the editor and publisher. United States Senator J. II. Kyle of South Dakota died at Aberdeen, that State, on July 1. the mriiaai mi bdle. The supposed defalcation of Post master Snider, the amount of which was repcrted by Postal Inspector Coyne as |1.964.40, has been, after further investigation by the author ities at Washington, reduced to 1127.26. The investigation is still being prosecuted bv the U. 9. Postal Auditor at Washington with a reason able probability that the claim of Sni der, made at the time, that be was not getting a fair deal, and that his accounts properly balanced would show that the Government owed him $66, bears more than a shadow of truth. Perhaps Mr. Coyne may now answer the question, many times asked him by the bondsmen and an swered by an important wave of the hand) “Where did you obtain your figures, Mr. Coyne?” There are but few in Tuscarora but believed that dis honesty was not one of the faults of A, L. Snider, and there are many now who will bet dollars to doughnuts that when the Inspector’s red tape is un tangled Snider’s record will compare favorably with that of the “Inspect or’s” generally. — Tuscarora Times Review. The press of the State has been al most unanimous in its adverse criti cism regarding Inspector Coyne's action in the Tuscarora matter, and the Winnemucca Silver State says he is a dangerous man and should be re moved from the position he now occu pies. The people of Eureka will remember Mr. Coyne as the Inspector who took a very active part in the recent re moval of the Poetoffice in Eureka. DE LilAI'N IS EVA DA SINKS. Salt Lake Herald, July 9: George Wright, a well known resident of De Lamar, passed through the city yester day on his way to Cardinal, Ontario, Canada, where he has been called on business. He expressed the opinion that the time was not distant when the De Lamar mine and mill would close down for good. No new timbers or other mine supplies are going in, and the mill, he declares, has seen its best days. The secret of the whole business, Mr. Wright believes, lies in the alleged fact that the vein in that property is nothing more than a break over from the big ledge in the April Fool, and that it has been pretty nearly mined out. ■OABD or rARDOIS. At a meeting of the State Board of Pardons held in Carson this week the following cases were acted upon : Charlie Gee, continued. E. S. Kendricks, denied. Joseph White, 0811 breaking; grant ed. Otto Soln, continued. Hill Hamilton, murder in the second degree taken, under advisement until further testimony can be secured.

VanDuzer for Congress on the Democratic ticket. To settle matters at once we will state that Mr. VanDuzer is not a candidate, and also that the Fusion candidate for Congress will be one of the most prom inent men in Nevada, who will carry the State like a whirlwind, a gentle man that the Republican party cannot come within 2,000 votes of defeating. Blko Developed Another Aldrich. E. J. Crawford of San Jose, Cal., who recently met Miss Mabel Howes of Col fax, Cal., now mourns the loes of $1,000 which he advanced her on ceitain sil ver mines she claimed to own in Elko county, Nevada. He has just visited Elko and learned that no such mines exist. He is now seeking to lcoate his fair friend. She also went under the name of Mrs. Reed. President Hay’s Assistant. President Hays of the Southern Pa cific Company has issued the follow ing bulletin: “Mr. E. H. Fitzhugh is hereby appointed assistant to the President with an office in San Fran cisco.” The office of assistant to the President was formerly held by II. E. Huntington. Mr. Fitzhugh was for merly connected with the Vermont Central. To Improve the Potato. A method of improving the potato is credited to M. Micbalet, as a result of experiments made in the Department Vaucluse, France. He advises that the potato plant be stripped of its blossom, and the crop of tubers will be improved in quantity and be richer in starch. The flower is not at all necessary to the well-being of the plant, which, in tha process of blos soming, consumes starch and other vegetable substances. STATE NEWS ITEMS. T. L. Flanigan of Washoe county has just made a sale of 10,000 lambs to W. M. Slater of < Oakland. C. B.

Henderson of Elko. Virginia Chronicle: Col. E. D. Boyle has recently ascertained with an ane roid that tbe altitude of the ancient townsite of Como, Lyon county, is 7,050 feet above sea level and that the summit of Mt. Davidson is 7,781 feet above sea level. The Silver State says “a prominent young society gentleman of Winne mucca has filed a complaint against a popular young county official, asking heavy damages for alleged slander. It is understood that the parties have engaged the best legal talent in town and a hard-fought legal combat is looked for. The Silver State is de terred from giving the names of the litigants out of regard for their feelings, and especially as there is a chance of the suit being compromised before it is taken into court.” GENERAL NEWS SUMMARY. A Canton, 0., dispatch says that Mrs. McKinley’s condition shows con tinued improvement. Pierre Lorillard, a multi-millionaire and patron of the turf, died in New York on the 7th instant.

No arrests have been made in con nection with the shortage of $30,000 in the San Francisco mint and specula tion as to the real culprit is of a varied sort. So far the Government officials who are working on the case have not divulged their theories. The double handed rock drilling con test at Grass Valley, Cal., July 4, was won by Joseph Larkin and Walter Humphrey, who sunk a hole twenty four inches in fifteen minutes with five-eighths inch steel drills.
