Tacoma, Waah., January 11.—The cat tlemen of eastern Washington and Ore gon find that even thousands more head of cattle than they aupposed have been rounded up and driven out of the country by stock tustiers during the past bum mer and Fall. For three months it lias been known that cattle thievea were vig orously at work, especially on the great bunch grass ranges of eastern Oregon south of Pendleton. The high prices for beef anti the activity of buyers of strong, sturdy horses for the British army have given an impetus to the rustlers, and en abled them to make tens of thousands of dollars hv their wholesale thievery. In making their final round-u|>s before beginning Winter feeding the cattlemen find that from 10 to 12 per cent of their herds on an average have been stolen. Until this time it was generally believed that much larger |>ercentages than usual of the herds had wandered into the foot hills after better feed. Diligent search •hows that such was not the case, and that the missing cattle have simply been ran out by rustlers. Their activity has been greatest in the Bingham Springs country, through the John Day district tod in the bouthern Umatilla country. Ctttlemen say their logses will aggregate not less than $100,000. TOMUPAH’M PHMr.Hr NITI'ATIOM. A correspondent writing Irom Tonujiah, Nevada, says: “Only eight short months had passed since the first pick was stiuck in the croppings that miners had passed by for years, and yet the first New Year was celebrated by 1,500 people, and they represented the energy that in this short time has taken over $5,000,000 from the bowels of the earth. The leases having expired on December 31, 1901, many people are leaving the camp for the Win ter. Things are quieting down and there is much sickness in the district, ow ing to poor sanitary conditions. It will prob ably be some weeks before Tonopah will he in smooth running order again. The new company must fix its plans; the mines are in a strange sha|ie. They have been gutted and the work bo far done will be of little use, save it be considered as prospect work. However, things will soon adjust themselves and work will be gin at Tonopah more systematically. The output will probably not be so large each month, but the number of men employed will continue to be larger and Tonopah will be one of the largest towns in the Blate of Nevada, if not the largest." lew HI H»:*r, RKAI.I.Y NKRIiRR. Sacramento P.ee: Congressman S. D. Woods, of this district, lias introduced in the National House a bill for the crea tion of a department of Mines and Min ing, with a Secretary of the same, who shall be a member of the President’s Cabinet. The bill provides for the transfer of the geological survey from the Department of the Interior and for making the Director of the Survey the Director of a Bureau for the collection and dissemination of practical and useful information concern ing the mines, mineral resources, and mining industries of the United States. The mining industry is one of the most important in the country and one of the most profitable. Its importance seems to be a good deal increased by the new possessions. There has heen need for such a department in the Executive branch of the Federal Government for some time, and the need will increase rather than diminish. Hrynu'a Coiiiiuourr. Mr. Bryan's Commoner will not cease publication, as has l>een reported, says a Lincoln, Nebraska press dispatch. At no time within the eleven months of its existence has it been more prosperous thf.ii now. The paid circulation is 10, 300, and as the paper has a good supply of advertisements at big rates, it is not wrong to say that Mr. Bryan will clean up ♦40,000 the first year. I-ocal publishers say that his profits will not fall below ♦50,000. Mr. Bryan lias no printing out fit, hut ttiirty persons are employed in the business office to handle the incom ing and departing mail. I'nraun l.lbel Null. Judge Mack has inaugurated a prose cution (or*criminal libel against H. A. I-emmon and H. C. I>unn, publishers of the Carson News. The grounds of the ra-e* »hm a i-titcment published in the News relative to Judge Mack’s position in the case of Peters vs. Jones, and was to the effect that the Supreme Court had declared Mack unqualified to sit in the case, after the latter had refused to call in another Judge. 1 wo Elko ladies have opened a private sanitarium in that town.

Work on the oil well at Elko has been abondoned until Spring sets in. It is said that the Hesperian company will then resume sinking. The licenses collected in Nye county, Nevada, since the Tonopah boom began are said to be more than the running ex penses of the county. Senator George Ernst of Elko has pur chased the W. L. Pritchard ranch at Old River, Churchill county, with the horses, cattle, etc. for $12,000.

(I Made by Standard Oil Company TO TALK OR NOT TO TALK! la Silence Golden nr la It Fooltak and Unsocial? Is the old figure of a “golden silence” being washed away In the flood of twentieth century volubility? And Is it right that it should be so washed away? We do not know the answers to these questions. Perhaps you, gen tle reader, know and will tell. We do know that there is a good deal more talk In the world than would have been considered strictly necessary by our forbears. If you don’t believe this, go to the nearest library and ask to see the bound volumes of The Congression al Record. You might also take along a certificate of sanity In case the libra rian became alarmed at the request. The old timers used to tell the youth of the land to consider If what they were about to say were not only "true and tried,” but also “necessary.” The idea held tar quite a time that it was as reprehensible to waste words as to dissipate wealth. Our old friend Montaigne, however, had a tender place In bis heart for the talker. He declared, “The most nat ural and fruitful exercise of the mind is conversation, and I find the use of It more sweet than any other action In life.” In some quarters members of the fem inine sex are credited with an indorse ment of Mr. Montaigne’s sentiment. Is It wise to talk much? Or Is It fool ish? Is silence golden? Or Is It unso cial and therefore against civilization? What do you think?—New York Tele gram. An EAbarruilac Query. In a city where children above the age of five years have to i>ay full fare on the tramcars while those who are younger go free the passengers In a car saw one day a rather large boy, looking seven years old at least, held In his mother’s lap as though he were a baby. The big child seemed restless about something. Presently he cried: ‘‘Mamma! Mam ma!" The mother, as If with a premonition of something wrong, tried to hush him, but he still kept saying: "Mamma! Mamma!" "Well, what Is it?” she asked at last. "Mamma, when do I have to say I’m only tive?” Then the passengers—some of them— laughed and the mother turned very red.—London Answers.

Row ItnwM On re SnabbeS * Ru ■lu Conrt DlKoltorr. When Johann 8trauss took hts or* chostra to Russia, he had Rome unusu al experiences not generally vouchsaf ed to those who live outside an auto cratic government. One day he received the czarina's commands to play before her at her summer resort and was told, on arriv ing there, that he would have to re hearse his programme three times be fore the performance. He begged to know the reason for that, but no ex planation was given him. These were her majesty’s orders, and be could only comply. Still, his astonishment grew when he saw during the, three rehear sals an empty court carriage drawn by a pair of horses slowly going back and forth In front of his orchestra. Throughout the dual performance the mysterious act was explained. Tha empress, having a sharp attack of gout, was obliged to recline In the carriage, her foot on a cushion, while the con cert took place, and the object of re hearsal had been to accustom the horses to a full string band lest they should take fright and bolt with her. At the end of the performance an ex alted dignitary of the court bade Strauss follow him to a splendid grand piano, saying: “Now be good enough to play me all the newest Vienna music.” Although be was pretty fatigued by his three rehearsals and state perform ance, StrauBS thought It expedient to comply, but after he had played con tinuously for over an hour he stopped, saying, "I presume that will be suffi cient?” “I am not at all tired,” coolly rejoin ed his excellency. "But I am!” said Strauss and rose from the Instrument — Youth’s Com RAILROAD.
