Carson, Nevada, Jan. 15, 1902.
To Ox piltor of the Seminel :
The political pot haa commenced to
simmer in good earneat, and the various
ingredient* are going into the meaa rap
The meeting of the State Board of As
sessors. inglorious though its official re
null*, baa by reaaon of the opportunities
for an interchange of political wisdom,
otherwise designated buttonholing and
wire pulling, brought about a number of
interesting situations, some of which have
reached the public ear. Standing out
prominently from among its many breth
ren, one rumor arrests particular atten
tion. Whether it hath foundation upon
factor Action, your subscriber aaith not,
bnt gives it to you as it comes to him.
John Promise Jones is not to spiel at
Republican camp Ares this Fall to the
rousing accompaniment of brass band?
and booming anvils, and as there is none
other whose metal may match that of
Francis Go-up Newlands for the Senator
ial toga, the latter now blithely dreams of
the realization of an ambition long de
ferred, and in grateful appreciation of the
—well—er—situation—Francis will with
hold the maintenance of the Fusion cam
paign, and lend no wicked aid to the con
summation of Fusion ends in the election
of the State ticket. In acknowledgement
of the—well—er—situation—the Republi
can folk will do as little harm to the rep
resentative of the Demo-Silver party as
the delicacy of the—er—situation—de
Of course, tbs boys don’t see much fun
about alt this. It has been such a snap
for them these many moons past to secure
the necessary plunks wherewith to prop
erly carry on the campaign of political ed
ucation from loose, free, baggy pockets ol
the check pantaloons on another man’s
underpinnings, that it now comes hard
indeed to personally meet the exigencies
of a situation so fraught with dangerous
Never has there been a time when the
loosening of the purse strings seemed so
urgent and woefully necessary. The
Silver Party Republican is haunted by
the ghosts of his old ideals, and ye simon
pure Democratic Fusionist fain would
drive away these hobgoblins by the mu
sic of many bands and the burning of
much powder, but the wherewithal for the
doing of these things may now no longer
be forthcoming at the anxious bidding of
the executive committee.
If all this be true, then, verily, hath
wisdom come to Francis. If it be not
true, the sound of the weeping and wail
ing and gnashing of teeth now issuing
forth from the councils of the Fusionist
will cease. But the floating of the rumor
will at least have served the purpose of
teaching some people the weight of obli
Crux Mathematiuorvm II.
It ia a remarkable admission that the
London Times makes concerning Ire
land. The aitnation, it says, is worse
than it was in 1895, when John Mor
ley, the last Liberal Irish Secretary,
left office. In the good old Tory view
• whioh the Times expresses, the reason
for thia ia that the Salisbury govern
ment has been trying to kill Home
Buie "with kindness.” The true so
lution evidently is the polioy of the
"firm hand” and Cromwellian severity.
Any student of Irish history would
naturally suppose that the "firm band”
polioy had had a long and fair trial.
The truth is that time is already begin
ning to prove that Gladstone was the
only great English leader of his day
who oame to understand the true way
to deal with races like the Irish and
the Boers.
On Shrove Tuesday,Februaryll, 1902,
the end of the official season, and the
eighteenth birthday of Miss Alioe
Roosevelt, a grand ball will be given at
the White House. A thousand distin
guished guests have been invited, and
President and Mrs. Roosevelt will
mingle with the dancers, recalling the
days when the Chief Executive of the
country did not disdain to tread the
stately minuet. This will be an event
in the social functions at the White
Honse, as its history oontains only the
reoord of a few balls.
The Sentinel acknowledges the re
ceipt of a complimentary tioket from
the Tasoarora Miners’ Union to a ball
to be given in honor of the dedication
of their new hall on January 16, 1902.
We trust the efforts of the Union to
make this event a great success was re
alized, and extend our thanks for the
oourtesy. __________
Senator Penrose has introduced a
bill levying a doty of 25 per oent ad
valorem on all importations of manu
factured silvor. A preamble of the
bill declares it to bo the purpose of the
measure to protect the silver industry
of the United States.
The State Board of Pardons this week
again refused to pardon Patrick Crowley,
who is serving a life sentence for killing
shift boas Nichols in the Savage mine at
Virginia City.

Charles P. Lane, the well known min
ing man, is reported to be on his way to
It is estimated that the vote polled by
Nevada at the election this Fsll will be
one-third larger than in 1900.
The telephone line between Tonopah
and Hodaville has been completed. The
first message was sent over the line
The Walker l.ake Bulletin says the
shipment of Tonopah ore to the Rock
Point mill at Payton has been discontin
ued, as it cannot be worked to the per
centage agreed upon.
Elmer Punlap, of the firm of Dunlap A
Stewart, Tonopah leasers, who died there
last week of pneumonia, willed $500 to
the Tonopah Miners’ Union and $7,000 to
his partner. Bob Stewart.
Willard Johnson, convicted of assault
with a deadly weapon upon Thomas
Phillips at the Wedekind mine, near
Reno, last Summer, and sentenced to one
year, was pardoned by the State Board
Tom Scott, the negro who shot Con
stable Lee|>er at Keno last week, and was
himself wounded, was removed to the
jail at Carson on Monday to save him from
being lynched. He died the following
day. Officer Leeper, who was thought to
have been mortally wounded, is reported
to be improving.
George I). Roberts, one of the best
known miuing men in the West, died De
cember 24, after a short illness in New
York City. He was 73 years old. In
1869 he went to Virginia City, Nevada,
und soon afterward became engaged with
others in the development of the Com
stock Lode, in which be is said to have
made a fortune.
From th* Bodadzz of January 11.
All of the pneumonia patients are doing
nicely and it is thought no more deaths
will occur.
As we go to press it is learned that S. A.
Crecenzo has just died. The remains will
be taken to Austin for burial.
The Sodaville telephone line is com
pleted to three miles below town. It will
be finished into Tonopah Monday night.
Manager Victor Barnd of the Tybo M.
& R. Co., accompanied by A. Oldoerp of
1‘arral, Mexico, and Joseph Williams of
Hot Creek, inspected the rich minesof
Tonopah this week. The gentlemen were
much pleased with what they saw.
Mrs. Maddigan, who was a passenger
on Tuesday’s stage, was compelled to ride
upon the top of the coach. There was not
a man inside of the coach who would re
linquish his seat to the lady. We wonder
if the inside male passengers ever had a
mother or a sister.
If there was a railroad connecting Tono
pah with the outside world and equipped
with plenty of passenger coaches, the
town of Tonopah would be depopulated
inside of two days, as everybody is scared
over the pneumonia epidemic. It is now
believed that the worst is over and the
epidemic has spent its force.
The Tonopah Mining Company of Phil
adelphia must at once build a railroad into
Tonopah, conduct a water system into
the camp and erect a large reduction
plant to reduce the great output of the
mines and district. The shipping of the
ore from this camp is the work of a child.
The company has the greatest mines
here in existence in the mining world to
day. ___________
ratal Pneumonia.
Alf Doten in Salt Lake Tribune: The
disastrous prevalence of pneumonia in
Tonopah at present is and has been in
cidental to all new mining camps in this
State or vicinity, Eureka, Pioche, White
Pine, Bodi, and elsewhere. It comes
from lack of shelter from the cold air or
storms, especially at night—few houses—
having to sleep most anywhere, out in
the sagebrusti or among the rocks. Out
in White Pine, in the early times, a fel
low felt happy in being allowed to spread
his blankets, or lie down without any oh
the earthen floor of a store or saloon, out
of the thick, frozen fog or “pogonip” for
the night. Others not similarly favored
had to sit or walk around hunting up
pneumonia, or get back to the white set
tlements as soon as expedient. The only
standoff to pneumonia was plenty of
good whisky, but that cost two-bits a
drink; therefore impecunious prospectors
were measurably defenseless.
Victor Bouton t'nrtlonod.
Victor Bouton, convicted of cattle-ruat
ling in Humboldt county in 1899 and
sentenced to seven years, was pardoned
from the Nevada State Penitentiary on
January 13. His release was entirely
due to the intercession of his sister, Mrs.
Elmer, formerly Cloy Bouton, the actress*,
wife of Elmer, the pugilist, and sister of
Madeline Bouton, the well-known act
ress. Mrs. Elmer came to Nevada a
year ago, when she heard of her brother’s
conviction, and went up and down the
State soliciting signatures to the petition
for her brother’s pardon. She was emi
nently successful, securing the names of
members of the jury, as well as one or
two of the prosecution’s witnesses. An
eloquent and tearful appeal was made for
Victor’s release, which was granted on
condition that he leave the State at once.
The Individual Assessors Refer All Matters Back to Their
Individual Discretion.
From tlx Carton Morning Appeal of Jan. IS. i
The State Kevenoe Board held a sea- j
sion in the Governor’s office yesterday, j
When the matter o( the Conntv Boards
of Equalization fixing the value on rail
roads, the value of which had been fixed
by the Assessors, came up, Attorney
General Woodburn gave it as a legal
opinion that they' had exceeded their
right under the law. The Board, how
ever, decided that action in the matter
should be instituted by the State officials.
Most of the schedules of last year were
left to the judgment of the Assessors.
They were all passed until milk cows
were reached^ and these were fixed at $2o
per head.
Beef cattle were left to the Assessors,
and stock cattle were rated at $17 a head,
except in Nye, Lincoln and Esmeralda,
where they were fixed at $10.
There was a little discussion over slieep,
and a move to cut them down to $2.25 a
head was lost. They remain at the old
rate $2.50; buck sheep $5.00.
Telephone and telegraph lines were left
to the Assessors, aad then came a tussle
over the valuation of the “standard gauge
with terminals outside the State.’’
This meant the Southern Pacific. The
discussion was quite general. The Gov
ernor stated that the reduction of tbe
State rate from one dollar on tbe hundred
to eighty cents bad caused a falling off in
the State revenue of about $16,000.
The Controller was called on to inform
the Board on the revenue returns under
the new law, and gave the valuation at a
trifle over $24,000,000 for 1900, and $28,
000,000 for 1901. The money collected for
1900 was $238,260.94, and for the year just
closed $257,613.59, an increase of $19,352.
Mr. Ryan of ttie Southern Pacific said
that about $10,000 of that was the in
creased taxation of the Southern Pacific,
They were willing to pay on $15,000 a
mile but objected to any higher rate, con
sidering the low tax on other classes of
It was finally simmered down to the
consideration of two rates, $15,000 or $16,
000 a mile. The adherents of one valua
tion insist that higher figures will result
in a lawsuit, and the State will have no
money to fight the suit. The advocates
of the $16,000 valuation insist that the
road will stand the raise without a suit.
Mr. Ryan when appealed to replied
that he was only there to report to the
company, and the Law Department decid
ed what litigation they should go into.
The matter was unsettled when the
Board adjourned to meet at 10 o’clock this
From the Canon Evening Newt of J»n. 15.
To-day the State Board of Assessors
practically went out of business and as
an organization will be heard from no
more. There are reasons and reasons
assigned by the members. Some of
them say the ‘‘other seven” were act
ing regardless of law and justice, which
explanation is met by the other faction
by the plain, unpolished statement that
half the Board “wears the S. P. collar,
and finds it such a weight that they are
unable to transact any business.”
Yesterday’s session plainly indicated
the near approach of the end. Schedule
after schedule was taken up and passed
—“left to the discretion of the several
Assessors.” The majority of the Board
seemed willing to raise the valuation on
milch cows, usually owned by people of
moderate circumstances, but thought
that the beef cattle industry should re
ceive a bonus from the State in the form
of a reduction in values for taxation pur
poses. The telephone and telegraph
lines were left to the judgment of the As
sessors, and sheep schedules as adopted
last year were maintained, and then
came the Central Pacific assessment.
This little item brought about the disso
lution of the Board. The vote stood 7
to 7. Half wanted to reduce it to a nom
inal amount, or leave it “to the judgment
of the individual Assessors,” meaning
themselves, and the others stuck for $20,
000 per mile. The latter, however, of
fered to compromise on $16,000 per
mile, but it failed, and the Board ad
journed until this morning.
This morning the fight was resumed,
but no man of the bucking seven could
be won over, and the deadlock was still
on. Finally, a motion was made to re
scind all previous action and adjourn
sine die. It passed, and this leaves the
proposition just where it was before the
Legislature created the State Board of
The law has proved a failure, not how
ever, because of visible defects in its con
struction or intent, hut because of the
failure to carry out its beneficent pro
visions on the part of men elected to of
fice by the people of Nevada for that pur

Wedding Cake Caneee Insanity.
Miss Eliza Schneilter, a beautiful girl
of 21 years, has become insane from fol
lowing out the old custom of placing a
piece of wedding cake under the pil
low to dream on. She was present at a
marriage ceremony in Fruitvale, Cal., on
January 9, and receiving a piece of the
wedding cake, upon retiring that night
placed it under her pillow and dreamed
so vividly of her future husband and all
of the preliminaries of the wedding that
it preyed upon her mind to such an ex
tent that she is now violently insane and
has been committed to an asylum.

Dry milling, with with its attended
mortality, at De Lamar, Nevada, has
been finally abandoned and replaced by
the wet, the machinery for which latter
was put in motion at De Lamar’s mines
on January 9. The substitution of the
new for-the old is one over which the
population of the camp may well exult,
while the management have every rea
son to congratulate themselves.
