Tonopah Times: Elko offers a
sound argument for the construction
of a Government Indian school in
, that county as proposed by Senate
, bill J474, introduced by Senator Pitt
man. This is a measure that should
have the generous support of Con
gress without regard to partisan lines.
The Indians of Nevada demand more
care and attention from the Govern
ment. They have received practical
ly nothing and the fact that many of
them are inclined to be industrious
und make their own living on farms
und range has been used as an argu
ment to penalise them. If these no
mads were content to live in idleness
on the reservation they would receive
. an annual allotment and be housed
‘ comfortably but, owing to the desire
I to lloat around the State working at
.whatever they may find, they have
, been barred from participating bene
i (its which would have accrued were
they of a lazy shiftless disposition
willing to remain as pensioners on
the bounty of the Nation.
, The citizens of Elko County pre
sent thdir case in strong colors. The
movement started In that county is
not actuated by the hope of securing
a Government appropriation so much
as it is engendered by a spirit of phil
anthropy of the noblest character.
The Indian without restraint or care
degenerates into a worthless vaga
bond through circumstances, but it is
well known that where given the op
portunity he is found willing to work
and make a good showing as other
.people of the same relative plane of
intelligence. Without a guiding hand
the aboriginal settler of Nevada has
no inoejitive to lift himself from the
oqual6r of his surroundings and their
offspring have still less chance of
qualifying for citizenship. They grow
up as drifters wandering from town
to town, without any fixed purpose
and are accepted as an unavoidable
nuisance that must be tolerated be
cause there is no means of abate

lethargic demeanor of the you \g In
dian he is found quite tractable and
ambitious when directed in the r.ght
path.1 The old theory that the edu

Government school has been dissi
pated by the conduct of scores after
leaving school who carry the teach
ing of their preceptors into their
daily life and develop the best aspira
tions of white people. The first step
In reclaiming the Indian lies in the
school where farming and stock rais
ing is part of the training. An In
dian never takes to sedentary pur
suits and, although there are rare
cases where the professions have been
adorned by descendants of the first
settlers, the examples are the excep
tion rather than the rule. Best re
sults are found In the open, out door
existence to which they take natural
ly. With all the talk about federa
lizing the public schools it is gently
suggested that a good beginning may
be found in training the Indian
youths to thrift and industry.
Washington,1 May 1.—By a vote of

Under the Mil which now goes to
the Senate, the Federal fund would

bill, unless it was amended before it

$14,000 a mile for 1912 and $20.

plan the Federal participation in

The forced retirement of the Utah
road commission, which for man;
years dominated the road policy of
the State. Is received with delight h;
the people of many counties of that
State, and also by all friends of the
Lincoln highway and the Roosevelt
Midland trail in Nevada. An inves
tigation of the affairs of the commis
sion. which was recently made by ex
pert accountants, shows Irregulari
ties running into the thousands of
dollars, and from the reports as pub
lished in the Utah newspapers. It
i would seem that some of the officials
connected with the highway depart
ment profited personally from these
Irregularities. But that is a matter
which concerns the people of Utah
alone, while the forced retirement of
the commission is of importance to
the people of Nevada. The Tonopah
Times of recent date makes the fol
lowing comments upon the matter,
which will prove of interest to the
people of Nevada:
"Retirement of Utah's road fom
mlssion can be explained only on the
ground that the body rendered itself
obnoxious to the citizens and motor
ists of Utah as well as to the people
of Nevada and California with whom
Salt Lake's commercial interests wish
to live in amity and accord. The
Utah board does not wield as much
influence at home as it does in the
adjoining States, or its orders would
be received with greater respect. This
is the board that decreed the Wend
over route as the only logical connec
tion for a State highway. The Nevada
Highway Commission acted precipi
tately in accepting this choice, for the
action seems to have aroused a strong
opipriltion within the Mormon em
pire. The arbitrary stand of the Utah
board provoked a hostile sentiment*
in every western county of the State
and, in spite of the humble submis
sion of Nevada, the taxpayers of Utah
proclaimed very emphatically that
they would not stand for this slight
thrown upon the Lincoln Highway
and the Midland Trail associations,
whose routes were logged years be
fore Utah ever thought of spending a
dollar on a road commission. The
energetic protest filed by Secretary
Hoag of the Lincoln route and the
eloquent appeals of Vice-President
Scott of the Midland trail, backed by
the unanimous sentiment of Tooele
and Millard Counties of Utah forced
the issue resulting in the commission
resigning to make way for a board of
less obstinate mould, which is dis
posed to pay some attention to the
interests and arguments of taxpayers.
The personnel of the new board will
be scrutinized closely, as hopes are
entertained that the new commission
will insist that Utah now fulflll its
obligations contained in the contract
between the State and the ^Lincoln
Highway Association, under which
the State received $125,000 in gifts
for the improvement of the Sieber
ling cut-off, which has been held in
suspense to the great detriment of
routes via Ely."
The National City Bank's monthly
letter under date of 1922, says:
The month of April Is normally one
of Increasing industrial and trade ac
tivity, when the trades dependent
upon outdoor activity receive a stim
ulus. This year the revival which be
came noticeable some weeks earlier
has been on the whole well sustained,
although cold weather has been un
favorable to trade development. Sen
timent in business circles Is much
more cheerlul than at any time last
year, and this is especially note
worthy throughout the agricultural
districts. Although price conditions
are regarded as yet far from satis
factory, and many people still have a
keen realization of the losses they
have suffered, the country has gener
ally recovered its poise, and is ready
to face the future with courage and
The security markets have reflect
ed confidence in the future of the in
dustries, but the rapid rise of prices
is largely due to easy money condi
tions, rather than to belief that a
great change has come over the busi
ness situation. Critics are disposed
to say that the market is moving too
rapidly and it is doubtless true that
the rise of the price level of stocks is
out of proportion to the actual gain
in the state of general trade, but the
stock market has a way of rapidlv
discounting a trend. The business
situation is assuredly better than at
any time last year, but there are
many important adjustments yet to
be made. It is impossible after the
great degree of disorganization which
has occurred that the advance should
be uniform and rapid.
Building operations are on a larger
scale than a year ago, and sufficient
to employ fairly well the workers In
the building trades and building ma
terial industries. The automobile in
dustry is m%ch more active than a
year ago, and contracts for railroad
equipment are on a larger scale than
at any time since the war. The effect
of activity in these several lines con
suming iron and steel is pronounced.
Advices from Wolgan Valley, in
New South Wales, indicate that an
experiment on a large scale to distil
shale oil in situ has resulted satis
factorily. A correspondent in “Chem- '
leal and Metallurgical Engineering"
quotes from the "Morning Herald"
of Sydney to the effect that the shale
in an old working was set on fire af
ter having been protected and con
fined by brickwork, so that control
and combustion could be regulated.
It is reported that three days after
the fire was started the flow of oil ex
ceeded the storage capacity of the
tanks that were available. The re
sult is Interesting and significant as
pointing a way to the economical ex
ploitation of deposits of shale.—Min
ing and Scientific Press.

Nets Ouderkirk, who (or the past

has held a commission in the State
Police, has decided to give up his Job
and present his resignation to the
Elko County Commissioners at their
next session.
Although Nels refuses to give the
real reason for his resignation it is
supposed that the dismissal of George
Cotant and Guy Harbin has had some
thing to do with it. The grand Jury
suspected that the prohibition laws
were not being enforced as they
should have been and Ouderkirk was
given a Job with the understanding
that he should “bring them in.” Two
arrests are his total to date of those
suspected of being implicated in liq

resulted.—Elko Pree Press.

Ely, Nevada. May 1.— Operations

the Nevada Consolidated Copper Com
pany. Six ball mills with a total ca
pacity of 2500 tons have been started
at McGill and two steam shovels will
begin operations Ip the Ruth pit this
The Nevada Consolidated resumed
operations about the middle of March,
but owing to the coal strike a sus
pension occurred two weeks later.
The management is now confident
that it will have a sufficient tonnage
of coal on hand to continue work
steadily. There are plenty of men in
camp to meet all demands of labor.
General Manager C. B. Lakenan,
in outlining the policy of resumption,
said that an ample tonnage of ore
had arrived at the smelter to blow in
one reverberatory this week.
When asked concerning the num
ber of men now employed by the com
pany and the possibility of increas
ing this force, Mr. Lakenan said:
"There ard at present about 250
men working in the underground and
shovel pit mines at Ruth and 500
men at McGill. It is not the inten
tion of the company to materially in
crease the pay roll during the next
two months, as many employees who
were previously engaged in construc
