E- -A. . S IC ILL M A. 3ST - SATURDAY, DECEMBER 11. ItOI. new ukdik or thisb*. Eli. Harrinian, the President • of the Southern Pacific Company, is coming to California as soon as he can detach himself from business affairs of importance in the East. He is taking an active interest in everything that directly concerns the corporation over which he presides, and lie derives much information of value from the assistant to the Presi dent, Julius Kruttschnitt. Mr. llar riman is much better posted concern ing affairs in California than is fancied by most people although it is his pur pose to acquire additional information by a personal visit to San Francisco. President Harriman has resolVed that men occupying responsible posi tions in the service of the company and who draw large salaries from the treasury of the corporation shall in the future apply themselves strictly to the business of the railroad. If they cannot conform to the new order of things proclaimed by the President they will be expected to resign. Mr. Harriman is hrm in ms aeterm ination that the company’s men shall get out of machine politics and keep out or look elsewhere for employment. It was found after careful inquiry that many of the employes were in (he oil business, quite a number were engaged in large landed enterprises, while others were using the law de partment to transact business in which the company was not interested. It was ascertained that the credit, the prestige and the clerical force of the company and the accommodations ex tended for office convenience did not amount to acts of impropriety, but the custom was not business like. KEPOBT or NI'H LEY INgUIKY. A Washington, D. 0., dispatch ol Dec. 13 says: Tho report of the Schley Court of Inquiry was made public to night. There are two reports. Ad mirals Benham and Ramsay concur in the first, which is signed by Admiral Dewey as a matter of form. He also makes a separate report, although he agrees with the findings of facts sub scribed to by the others. Benham and Ramsay find against Schley on eleven points. They de cide that he did not make all speed to Cientfuegos or Santiago, and criticise him for retrograde movement, diso bedience of orders and failure to de stroy the Colon, also because of loop and blame him generally for “dilator iness, vacilation and lack of enter prise.” They find he was brave in battle. Admiral Dewey in his report says that the passage to Cienfuegos was made with all dispatch. That in view of his coal supply the blockade of Cien fuegos was effective, that his passage to Santiago was with as much dis patch as possible in keeping his squad ron together, that the blockade of San tiago was effective and finally that he was the senior officer off Santiago in absolute command, and entitled to the credit due him for the glorious victory which resulted in the total de struction of the Spanish ships. ©i’to&etinies, by the use of a wrong word, ridiculous statements are made. For instance, in one of the As sociated Press dispatches the other day an item began thus: “Two naked men entered the Chicago club room,” etc. The Btory goes on to say that they were robbers, who forced a gentleman to separate himself from $500. It is more than likely the intel ligent compositor changed “masked” into “naked,” and he certainly suc ceeded in making the item more pic turesque. Senator Teller has introduced a bill defining the judiciary cir cuits of the United States. An ad ditional circuit the Ninth is added, and by the provisions of his bill the Eighth circuit will be composed of the States of Montana, South Dakota, Wyoming, and Colorado, Utah and Idaho; the Ninth of Washington, Oregon, Nevada and California. It is reported that through Govern or-General Wood the UnitedStates has purchased the famous San Juan battle ground including the block house, and 200 acres of ground, the scene of the roost destructive and bloody battle of the Spanish-American war, and will convert the spot into a public park. In Berne, Switzerland, December 12 Dr. Joseph Zeerop, of Lucerne, Vice-President of the Federal Council, was elected President of the Swiss Confederation for 1902. 8TATE NEWS ITEMS.

Winnemucca Silver State, Decem ber 14: The mail service on the Central Pacific continues execra ble. It is a disgrace to the Postoffice Department which is generally sup posed to be conducted on rigid princi ples. The matter has been referred to time and again, but there seems to be no relief. The Department evi dently does not consider the mail ser vice in Nevada of enough consequence to make inquiry and place the fault and correct it. The latest instance of bad service of which the Silver State knows is the failure of all the Virginia City and Carson papers to arrive this morning. Perhaps they will be received in a few days from Chicago or some other East ern city. Occurances of this kind are not infrequent. If they are not due to carelessness, it would be well for the Department to give a better explana tion. The poor service given in the distri bution of the Nevada newspapers tends to injure every one of them. Subscribers who do not receive their papers regularly place the fault with the publishers and discontinue their subscriptions. The newspapers Buffer because soma .government employe, either from negligence or pure cussed ness, tigg failqd to do the work for which be is paid by the public.
