Sells Liquor Without a License at
Cortes, Enreka County.
Complaint having been filed with the
District Attorney that a Chinaman was
openly selling liqnor and running a
gambling game at Cortez, Eureka
County, Sheriff T. A. Burdick went
over there Monday to arrest the offend
er. There being no Justice of the Peace
at Cortez, Justice L. W. Cromer of
Enreka accompanied the Sheriff, and a
preliminary examination was held there
there to avoid paying witnesses expenses
to Eureka.
Sheriff Burdick returned from Cortez
Thursday, and it is learned that the man
arrested was George C. Cue, who was
agent for Sing Hong Lee. The parties
entered a plea of guilty to the charge of
selling liquor without a license, and
were fined $10 and costs, besides agree
ing to pay nine months back liquor li
cense. The Chinaman has given up his
saloon business and says he will handle
, no more liquor. An investigation of

Beautiful Tribute to the Memory of
the Late Dr. Dalby.
O. O. Goodwin pays tribute to the
memory of the late Dr. W. T. Dalby in
Goodwin’s Weekly. The obituary
dwells upon the sterling qualities of
Dr. Dalby as a man, reviews his emi
nence as a physician and surgeon and
recounts his response to every call that
was made for his services.
As all old Eurekans will remember
Mrs. Dalby, nee Maud Rives, formerly
of Eureka, the Sentinel reproduces the
paragraph referring to the Doctor’s do
mestic life. Mr. Goodwin says:
“The desolation of his late home is
heart-breaking. His marriage was the
real incorporation of two lives aud the
picture of the stricken survivor bending
above her two helpless babies is one of
a sorrow that has not one relieving tint.
One of the keenest pangs of the young
mother’s grief is the thought that those
bibies will never realize how noble aud
true ahd devoted, aud how superb in
character was their father. Searching
iu the darkness of her soul for a ray of
comfort the only one that comes to her
is the knowledge of what he was, what
he hoped to be to her and their chil
dren. May this be enough to support
aud sustain and give her the strength
to be both mother and father to his

The Reno Gazette of September 17,
oontains the information that the pre
viously reported expulsion of Chinese
from Tonopah was much more serious
than at first reported. Besides beating
an aged Chinese to death, the rioters
first drove six Chinamen to a lonely
place outside of Tonopah and their
robbed them.
E. M. Araudall, president, aud H. S.
Brensing, secretary of the Tonopah
Labor Union, have been lodged in jail
and other arrests are being made hourly.
An indignation meeting of citizens
has been held denouncing the outrage,
aud counsel of the Six Companies from
San Francisco is on the ground for the
purpose of prosecuting the guilty part

The Chinese minister at Washington
has laid the matter before the State De
Acting Secretary Adee has wired the
Governor of Nevada, asking for an im
mediate investigation and requesting
that he afford every protection in his
power to the Chinese residents of To

Just what process of law will be fol
lowed iu determining legally where we
are at has not yet developed, but it
is likely that it will be brought up next
month, when the District Court meets,
in a form that will question the juris
diction of Nye County officers in some
case pending. This then will open the
matter officially and bring the Govern
ment surveyors into it who made the
survey, etc. But it will be several
mouths before the case is definitely set
tled, as a big fight is brewing. Esmer
alda County wants us, and wants us
badly, and Nye will be loth to give us

Chinese Driven From Tonopah.
A telegram reoeived here to-day
stated that the Chinese were driven

unions and that several of the Mongols

Charley Lautenschlager Dies in San
Francisco Unexpectedly.
A telegram was received in Eureka
on Thursday by Paul Tost, from W. J.
Tonkin at present in San Franciaco, an
nouncing the death of Charles Lauten
schlager, which occurred Wednesday
night at the French hospital in the
city. The telegram also asked for in
structions regarding the disposition of
the body.
Sincere regret was expressed on all
sides at the nnexpected death of Mr.
Lautenschlager. He had recently left
Eureka to secure special treatment in
San Francisco for failing health, but it
was at that time considered his ail
ment was due more to advancing years
and the strenuous life he lived than se
rious physical infirmity.
Mr. Lautenschlager came to Eureka
from Idaho iu 1872, and has been en
gaged since that time in the brewery
aud liquor business. He was a native
of Germany, aud on arriving in the
the United States, he first started in the
sheep business in Alaska and Oregon.
Later he went to Idaho and located at
Hog 'Em, near Idaho City, engaging
witn a partner in the brewery and bak
ery business, and the firm did a flour
ishing and prosperous trade. The bak
ery made a specialty of pies at $1 each,
and the miners kept them bnsy. Two
miners working a placer claim in Hog
’Em gulch became dissatisfied and sold
their claim to Mr. Lautenschlager for
$100. He pnt men to work aud iu about
ten days they struck a pay streak from
which threo men took out $800 per day.
The force was increased to six men, he
paying each man $16 per day and $320
a day for water, and $1500 a day was
taken from the mine for some time.
Naturally, Mr. Lautenschlager be
came quite wealthy, but as he was in
clined towards speculation aud believed
in keeping money in circulation, he fin
ally had a bad turn and went broke.
About this time, he came to Eureka,
where he soon obtained an interest in
the brewing plant, then located on Main
street where the Bremenkampf building
now stands, and became identified with
its interests, and has .been remark
ably successful.
When leaving for San Francisco two
weeks ago, Mr. Lautenschlager left his
affairs in charge of Judge Breen, who
has been in Carson the past few days,
and did not reach Palisade until Thurs
day evening.
The deceased Eurekan leaves a large
estate, most of which is iu cash and ne
gotiable securities, though his mining
property is of considerable prospective
value. Outside of a millionaire brother
living iu St. Louis aud several uephews
iu Germany, Mr. Lautenschlager is not
kuown to have any relatives.
Friends in Eureka from whom ad
vice was requested as to disposition of
the body, wired Mr. Tonkin to have the
remains prepared for shipment to Eu
reka, where the deceased, it was known,
had expressed a wish to be buried.
A letter received yesterday from San
Francisco, dated September 16, says
that Mr. Lautenschlager was suffering
from inflammation of the kidneys and
rheumatic complications, which, it is
now believed, were the direct cause of
his death. A late dispatch reports that
the remains will be shipped Saturday
p. m., arriving in Eureka Monday.
Arrangements will be made to hold
the fuueral from the Masonic aud I. O.
O. F. hall, announcements for which
will be made later.
Overcome by Foul Air iu the Saxtou
Miue Near Ely.
Benj. Strandmau, a timbermau em
ployed by the McKinley company at
the Saxton mine near Ely, White Piue
County, met an untimely death on Fri
day of last week, while removing some
rails from a drift at the bottom of the
West shaft, which is only 110 feet deep.
With Wm. Uurto and G. Seraphino, Mr.
Strandman desoended the ladder, fol
lowed by Mr. Ourto. Strandmau gave
no sign that there was foul air iu the
shaft, but Curto, realizing he was being
suffcated, with difficulty reached the
surface with his life, and remained in
a swoon for some time afterward. Help
came, and after several attempts, Robt.
Baird succeeded in fastening a line to
the unconscious miner aud he was
hoisted to the surface, but life was ex
tinct. This is the first reported case of
asphyxiation by carbon dioxide gas
(foul air) in the mines of White Pine
County. This shaft had not been in
use for a year. Mr. Strandman was a
native of Sweden, a man of good char
acter, and had been working in that
section about seven years. He was 50
years of age and leaves a wife and three
