ABLISHED 187.0__ EUREKA, NEVADA. APRIL 22, 1922 ■Proposed Main Line Ore Rates I ^ 0f the Ore Rate Confere nee Held at Carson City Last r November Beginning to Show Results Editor Sentinel, Eureka. Nevada. j be* to enclose herewith for your information and consideration copy f letters of March 14 and of this date covering copy of proposed valuation iradnate or classification of ore and reduced rates thereon, as well as our request for reduction in rates cover ing mining materials and supplies. The ore rates are to be considered as maximum. Will you kindly let us have the benefit of such comment and sugges tions as you may have to offer? Effective February 7. 1922, the Los Angeles and Salt Lake Railroad published ore rates from Pioche to Salt Lake Valley smelters as follows: By making reductions, beginning with $40 ore from $8.25 to $6.25; from $».37 to 37 on $50 ore; from $10.12 to $7.60 on $6o ore; from $10.50 to 7.50 on $70 ore; from $11 to $8 on $V* °re; from $11-37 to $8.50 on $90 ore; from $11.75 to $8.50 on $100 ore; from $14.12 to $10 on $150 ore, minimum weight 80 000 pounds, carload. On the lower grade ore the fol lowing rates wore republished: $2.20 on $6.50 ore; $2.80 on $8.60 ore; $3.75 on $15 ore; $4.50 on $20 ore; $5.50 on $25 and $30 ore. Information is at hand from Mr. H. C. Hallmark, General Freight Agent of the Southern Pacific Com pany in response to our letter of March 14th, stating that he will sub mit what he believes to be a satisfac tory set of reduced rates in the near future to cover the movement of ore from all points on his line to Utah and California smellers. We are also in receipt of informa tion from Mr. H. K. Faye. Traffic Manager of the Western Pacific Rail road Company that he Is considering the matter of taking similar action, and various shortline carriers oper ating in Nevada advise that they are agreeable In participating in any ar rangement that may be worked out by "the large carrier lines, that con trol the Interline and Interstate sit uation.” A definite statement as to the ul timate results which may be accom plished cannot be made at this time. We have, however, the assurance that substantial results are coming for the benefit of the prospectors and the miners of our State. We are hopeful that we may be able to Induce the trunkline carriers to establish our proposed valuation graduate and the reduced rates in connection therewith. If this can be brought about It will be a very fav orable adjustment and one upon which the various mining districts In our State should prosper in the fu ture. Trusting that we may have the benefit of your continued co-opera tion, and that you will notify all min ing men to communicate with us re garding rate adjustments necessary to resume or continue operations, we are Very truly yours, PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION OK NEVADA. By J. K. SHAUGHNESSY, Chairman. Letter of March 14, 1922, from the Public Service Commission of Ne vada to railway officials of roads do ing business in Nevada: Gentlemen: Supplementing our letter of Janu ary 15, 1922, we enclose herewith statement of rates on ore and con centrales from Nevada producing points to Utah smelters which are built up on a buslB of ltyc per ton mile as a minimum on $25 ore or less for the short haul points on the main line of the Western and South ern Pacific to Reno and including Ely and Pioche on the Nevada Northern and Union Pacific. From the Avenol Pallsade group 1.4c per ton mile Is used; from the Gerlad-Battle Moun tain group 1.35c Is used, whereas for the group Plute-Goldfield, Nevada, the pre-Ex Parte 74 rate of $5.00 per ton is used. The graduation and rates on all values not exceeding $35, $50, and $100 ore, and those exceeding $100 In value, follows the plan adopt ed by the northern lines to Montana Idaho smelters. We respectfully re quest that the rates and the gradua tions set forth In the statement be adopted at the earliest date possible. In connection therewith we also request that rates not exceeding those proposed from the Plute-Goldfield *one be adopted as through Joint rates for the movement of ores from ourenii ana Austin via uureKa, Ne vada and Nevada Central Hallways. We respectfully request your earnest co-operation in making effective these rates and classifications with a view to rehabilitating the mining Indus try of Nevada; building up the rail road revenues; utilizing empty car movement across Nevada eastbound and increasing resultant inbound high rated tonnage. The record in the ore rate confer ence held last November, you will re call, shows that for every four tons of ore shipped out of a mining camp there is one ton of freight Inbound. Stimulation of our gold, silver and ' I®4*1 “Inlng will Increase the popula tion of the State and, therefore, In | railroad revenues from mer frelght, and from passenger ia available. It la, therefore, of high est importance that the carriers serv ing Nevada establish reduced rateson ore and upon mining materials and supplies to the end that mines that are now closed down may be able to resume operations, and in order to encourage and enable our many small miners to go forward In the develop ment of tonnage for the carriers which is now not available. Unless relief can be extended along the line proposed there Is no hope of stimulating the mining industry of our State to the point where tt will bring back prosperity to the State's paramount industry and to the car riers at one and the same time. With full appreciation of your de sir# to co-operate and thanking you for ore rate adjustments thus far made we respectfully request that you advise when we may expect the tariffs to be Died containing the pro posed reductions and when rates will become effective. \ ery truly yours, PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION OF NEVADA. By J. F. SHAUOHNESSY, Chairman. Letter of April 12. 1922, (rom the Public Service Commission of Ne vada to railway officials of roads do ing business in Nevada: Gentlemen: In connection with the reduced ore rates and revision of valuation gradu ate or classification of ore now un der way, will you kindly consider and arrange to publish rates not In ex cess of pre ExParte 71 on mine tim bers. lumber, powder, fuel oil and coal for the purpose of stimulating or rehabilitating the mining industry In Nevada. The time Is at hand when such ac tion should be taken, especially by the trunkline carriers, In the inter est of Nevada’s paramount industry and the prosperity of the railroads and the people of the State. Thanking you for action thus far taken and your promise of further co-operation, we are Very truly yours, PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION OF NEVADA. By J. F. SHAUOHNESSY, Chairman. The item which is of local interest in the table submitted by the Public Service Commission to the railroads is the ore rate per ton from Palisade to the Utah smelters.

Thomas Clifford was an arrival from Reno by Wednesday's train, be ing called here by the death of his in fant daughter. Mrs. Peter Jensen arrived here Wednesday from Salt Lake City to join her husband, who is employed as an engineer at the Uncle Sam mine. The long spell of cold and stormy weather was broken Tuesday when the barometer commenced moving upward. While there was some sun shin'e that day, it was not until Wed nesday that the sun’s rays gave prom ise of early Spring warmth and of lasting. Thursday and Friday also broke clear, and with a high barom eter and clear skies a spell of good weather now seems probable. F. H. Bird, president of Holly Ex tension Mining Company, that owns a group of seven claims adjoining the Holly and Bullwhacker mines on Ad ams Hill, was an arrival the first of the week from San Francisco. He was joined here Wednesday by J. B. llunley, connected with the com pany, and after they have made an examination of the properties and planned for their further develop ment, work will be commenced. With the announcement of Peter Buol us a Republican candidate for United States Senator at the coming Fall election, the first gun in what gives promise of being one of Ne vada's liveliest political campaigns, is fired in to-day's Sentinel. State Sen ator Buol halls from Las Vegas and is prominent in the Republican party of this State. He has been conspic uous in the development of the La, Vegas country, and is one of the in fluential men ot the southern end of Nevada. A. R. Carville, representing the Standard Oil Company, autoed over from Elko Tuesday. In speaking of present road conditions he stated the road from Elko to Skelton, 30 miles, to be In fair condition, but from there to the Sadler ranch, 20 miles. It was soft and bad going. From the Sadler ranch into Eureka, 60 miles, the road is In fair condition for autos, but rough. This is the first auto to get through from Elko this Spring without assistance in some ot the soft spots. Attention is called to the program of the farce comedy, ‘‘A Poor Married Man." to be presented at the Eureka Theatre on Saturday evening, April 29, published in to-day’s Sentinel. This entertainment is given by the Ball Club to raise funds towards mak ing up a considerable sum it was un able to finance in carrying through last season’s games. The play will both entertain and amuse you, and between the acts pleasing specials will be Introduced. A social dance at Pavilion Hall will follow the play. Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Hunley. and the latter’s mother, Mrs. Dyke, were ar rivals lr Eureka Wednesday, coming overland by auto from Berkeley, Cal ifornia. They came via Tonopah and Mr. Hunley reports that considering the stormy weatherof the past month, found the roads in very fair condi tion and that the only section of road that caused them any trouble was in getting over the Manhattan summit. Mr. Hunley is connected with the Holly Extension Mining Company, and the fan’tly is now located in the Hjul house on the corner of Clark and Spring streets. Walter Handley succeeded in trail ing a band of 3000 ewe sheep over the Newark summit last Saturday and Sunday notwithstanding the deep snow on the summit and the cold and stormy weather that prevailed. With a force of snow shovelers from Eu reka and the Newark side a trail was cut through the deep drifts, and when a few leaders had been worked through, the procession started and was kept moving until all the band had passed over and on to the Eu reka side. This forced drive became necessary in order for the sheep to reach the lambing grounds near Black Point on this side of. the Diamond range of mountains.

We antici pate holding a public trial the latter part of next week or the first part of the week after. Out of these contest ants two will be chosen, one boy and one girl, as our representatives in Reno. Perhaps those in Reno will stand the expenses of the trip, if not, a donation or some means will be taken to raise the money needed. Miss Henderson is coaching these students and helping them to prepare them selves for the trial. The students of the high school borrowed the grammar school phon ograph and spent an enjoyable for ty-five minutes listening to the music. This was on Wednesday morning, and we hope we will continue to have en tertainment on this morning in the weeks to come. MARY BOSTON, Reporter.

BIG SPECIALS BETWEEN ACTS ADMISSION—ADULTS 75 CENTS CHILDREN (under 14 years of age) - - 25 CENTS A Social Dance Will Follow the Play I WAGES, FREIGHTS AND PRIGE8 By PROFESSOR R. A. DRAW Hamilton, Nevada, April 11.—The press of the whole country is groan ing about the necessity of cutting down wages, freights and prices, while the management of the various industries keep on lamenting, "It can't be done.” Our State Railroad Commissioner. F. J. Shaflghnessy, in his examina tion of the books of the Eureka & Palisade Railway Co. recently made at Palisade. Nevada, has produced some illuminating evidence on the high freight rates. As reported in the Eureka Sentinel of March 26, it was shown that on this little 84 mile narrow gauge road the president of the company receives $250 salary per month, the vice pres ident and general manager $800 per month, and $296 expense account in addition; the general manager and auditor $300 a month, and the gen eral manager’s clerk $150 a month. This makes a total of $1795. This is on the railroad management’s side. We> suppose that on the train oper ating’s side the engineer receives about $200 a month; the conductor about the same, and the fireman and the brakrfman about $150 each. That is a total of $700, and if two train crews are maintained, would be $1. 400. Now it seems to ns that all the ex ecutive work on this little road, as well as all the bookkeeping, could easily be done by one man and that $400 a month would be a more than reasonable salary for the work. But allow the manager a bookkeeper and clerk at $150 a month and we still have only $550 as a fair amount to run the executive part of this little road. That would mean $1245 less than is now shown. But even at the rates that the evi dence shows have been paid, that is $1795 monthly for executive charges, and presuming $1400 per month for operating charges, we get a monthly total of $3195, and in nine months this would be $28,755. But it is shown that the operating expenses for the nine months from April 1st, 1921, to December 31st, 1921, were $79,984.24. This leaves a balance of $51, 229. 24 not accounted for by either the ex ecutive charges or the operative charges. We suppose this balance was needed for repairs and grease. Rather a big amount, it seems to us, considering the condition of the road bed and the rolling stock. But even with these excessive charges the report shows a net in come during these nine months of $11,360.47. Under the above circumstances, is it any wonder that freight rates are high? In the long run, remember, the public must and does foot the bill. We believe that this condition is not exceptional, but that if the state ments of all railroads in the country were examined the same conditions, or worse, would be found to prevail. In every case the executive charges would be found to be exorbitant. We believe that the same thing is true of all the large corporative in dustries. especially so in coal. It is to be feared that sooner or later the real condition of things may reach the ears, or penetrate the brains, of Congress. In that event It is feared that Congress will appoint a Commission to investigate this. This fear nearly prevented as from writing. For we know, and every body kni>ws. that a congressional commission means fat salaries, big expenses, voluminous reports, two years or more of wasted time and no results. The facts we can see in a newspaper by glancing over two ems of printed matter would require 2000 pages of a commission's report and ( would then be as clear as mud. As to industrial plants, take, for example, the cotton mills of Law rence, Mass., during the strike of a few years ago. The workers struck because they could not live on the wages paid, but during the same time the mills paid dividends to stock holders of from 30% to 35% a year. Some day the common people will wake up to these facts. For in every case it is the common people who must suiter and finally pay the bill. At one time about a hundred and fifty years ago, an old fellow named Tom Jefferson made the remark In a public document that "all men are created equal." He thought that that simple statement was enough. At the present time it is not enough. In explaining it we would say: if you are born In the executive’s class, all are created equal and are entitled to the highest dividends it is possible squeeze out of an industry, and over and above that a yearly salary rang ing from $16,090 to $160,000 a year. These are your inalienable rights and must not be tampered with by Con gress or by any State Legislature. If you are born in the operative's class all are created eqq and shall re ceive wages from $J there is work t«J| hard times thes*^ duced and tamp ^^B ecutive class as much as they see fit. These are the inalienable rights of the operative’s class and they have no kick coming. We are not radicals. We do not want to preach a revolution. But we believe that the representatives of the people should take this matter in hand and pass just laws to correct the glaring faiMa that exist to-day. The executive classes rarely do it of their own volition. The industries In which It Is done are the exceptions. In most cases things are allowed to run from bad to worse until, as In the French Revolution, the streets ran red with blood. A nuVfTre#- re should have taught the wort* thing, but In the RuSTT" the same qi worse curred and are no“w occurring. Since the executive classes remain the predatory classes, why could not laws be passed empowering the De partment of Labor to send out ex aminers to every large Industry in' which the public is directly interest ed to examine all accounts and to see to it that no greater dividends than ten per cent per annum are paid, and that no executives receive a greater salary than that the Government it self pays to men of equal mental cal iber, and that la cases where there has been flagrant abuse the Depart ment Bhall take such corporatldns temporarily away from private con trol, and put economic experts in charge and cure matters? These changes are surely coming. It only remains to be seem whether those-'uterested wifi assist in bring ing them about la a peaceful and reasonable way or whether it will re quire the deatruetfon of all industry and a huge amount of bloodshed to accomplish them. The lessons of Rus sia ought to be enough of a warning to our country that we should take the peaceful way. As you know, the demand at pres ent is for nationalisation, doubt but this would be t ment provided It would agement charges and working forces to do more ter work. But the nationalisation of the railroads during the war has shown that the opposite is the result. Under National control it takes from two to three men to do what one oth erwise does. The management charg es are increased and all economy is thrown to the winds. FUNERAL OF ARMINDA NOSTROSA The funeral of Mrs. Arminda Nos trosa was held Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the Knights of Pythias Hall in Eureka under the auspices of Eureka Temple No. 16,' p-thian Sin ters. of which Mae deceased was a member. The hai lal service of the Lodge was Cad her the officers and members ot the Order, and during t this se; iee the hymns, “Nearer. Still Nearer,” a id “It le Not Death To Die,” were sung by Mrs. Ulmont Pas torino and Mrs. E. J. Andrews. At the grave in the family plot in the Catholic cemetery a burial hymn of the Lodge was rendered. Many old residents who had known the deceased from childhood, and friends of the family, paid their last tribute of respect by attending the services in the hall and in following the remains to the cemetery.
