In 1920 JJtts arsenic sold up to 15 and 10 ner pound. _ wot several montns eariy in i»i iJ Richmond-Eureka Mining Corn er shlPP«l an average of 1,000 Saat of spelss monthly from its slag jmm In Eureka, and had the price arsenic held up It It generally Haaght both the Eureka Con. and Schmond slag dumps would have mutually been shipped to the Utah aaaUers Cursory surveys were made ud there was some talk of allowing the local railway to temporarily use on* of Eureka's back streeU for a direct lino from the local depot Into Ho Richmond dumps. In order to es case the long haul and heavy grade over the high line through Nob Hill, hat the price of arsenic dropped to pslow a profitable shipping figure and Hnre have been no shipments out of gueka during the present year. With the rapid advancement of kertlcuiture and the necessity of pay Hg greater attention to tho killing at Insects, the demand for InBectl ddea has grown enormously. Sever al hundred tons of white arsenic Is aasd annually for killing weeds along lallrosd tracks, for which crude ar aaeic trloilde Is cheaper and nearly aa serviceable as the refined.

Arsenic is being ex perimented with for use In non-foul lag paints for ship bottoms. Other uses for the mineral, not bo losg ago thought to be useful only as a drug. Is In shot making. This am Is rather limited, only five or ten teas of metallic arsenic being used par year. The use of arsenic In mak ing shot Is said to make the shot rounder and harder. Alive to the posslbllties ot creating • profitable business out of the treat mart and handling of a formerly weeted product, the various smelting companies of the United States have entered the arsenic manufacturing Industry, and the speiss dumps here is Rareka are an Important source of arsenic to the United States Bmeltlng t Refining Company's smelters in Utah.

Torpey, President of the Eu rska-Uncle Sam Mining Company, has been here this week inspecting the mines and conferring with the management. When naked for an ex prcaslon of his Impressions, he said: "I am extremely gratified over the nay the property is turning out. Dur ing the past two and a half years' eonthyul development I have looked forward optimistically to the day I could say the mine’s success was ab aoiately assured. That day has now strived. Every day's work is In creasing the else of the ore bodies on the toil, 460, and 600 foot levels. When the mill is ready for operation •oat Spring.

Resident Manager Rosenshlne is also making arrangements to sink a new •haft 1000 feet in depth. “In short, I will say that when the completion of the company's mining •nd milling plana are reached and op erations under them are under full »»»y.

CANDIDATE CLUTE FOR ECONOMY IN STATE GOVERNMENT The members of the next Nevada Legislature will have many import ant questions to consider. In my opinion the most urgent of these will be that of taxation. An Immediate reduction in the expenses of the State is imperative. The present tax rate is not only an unreasonable demand upon the citizens of Nevada, but it has already resulted In deflecting out side capital needed in the develop ment of our resources to other sec tions of the country where lower tax es are levied and fair treatment In the future is assured by past records in conducting public business. The elimination of expensive, un necessary Boards of State Commis sions; the consolidation of numer ous other Commissions into a tew strong, effective organizations, man aged by competent and willing mem bers; and an entire abolishment of the duplication of work, and of the red tape incidental thereto, that is now so prevalent, will result in sav ing the State a very material sum an nually. In other directions more economical ways of conducting the business of the State can also be practiced, and the orgy of spending the taxpayers' money that has grown to astounding proportions in the past few years can be absolutely arrested. I am against any National or state legislation that will materially alter the present mining laws. The pros pector has been, is now, and always will be, the main (actor in mining de velopment and expansion. Any change in the laws that tend to curtail his activities would be an Irredeemable error, and Nevada would be the State to suffer most. All citizens of Eureka County de sire to maintain its splendid financial condition, as a magnet for the in teresting of outside capital in its numerous and promising mining dis tricts. whose development will bring prosperous times to labor, and all stock and agricultural interests in the county. If elected to the office of State Sen ator, 1 pledge myself to work for the benefit of all the industries of Eu reka County, and for an economical administration of Nevada's State gov ernment. —Advt. W. M. CLUTE. REPUBLICAN RALLY NEXT TUESDAY EVE. Next Tuesday evening, October 24. the last big Republican rally of the present campaign will be held at the Eureka Theatre at 8 o’clock.

NO FATAL ACCIDENTS IN MINKS OF NKVADA No fatal accidents occurred In the mills and smelters of Nevada during 1921. according to a report Just is sued by the United States bureau of mines. The report shows that in the entire country twenty-seven Persons were killed and 4494 injured. The injured in Nevada are reported as numbering 128. In imitating others, try at least to omit their fault*. FATHER KENNEDY :• I TELLSJF IRELAND Father P. V. Kennedy, who recent ly returned to BatUe Mountain from a two months’ visit to his old home In Ireland, gives the Battle Mountain S«out the following interesting story as to the true conditions existing in Ireland, from his own personal ob servation: "Unlike so many of my fellow countrymen, I have come back from the land of Ora-ma-chree with a mes sage of hope and a cheery word about Auld Ireland. "Just as official reports of various European governments tor the first two years of the great war, would have captured almost every living German except old Kaiser Bill, so' press reports of the last tew months would have killed off almost every living Irishman except De Valera nun sen. interviews given to various newspapers by our returned visitors have filled the minds of Americans with the idea that Ireland Is another seething Flanders; that our broth ers across the sea are bandits and murderers of the lowest type; that the hand of poverty la nailed to ev ery door; that ‘the mental processes of such as these need not be further considered, as they are outside or be yond the standards of reason and of values accepted by ordinary human beings.’ Mark you, some of them, and ‘very dlstlngushed ones,’ are1 now ashamed of being Irish. Our sympathy goes out to them In their great sorrow. May we suggest, as a healing balm, the addition of an I or an O to the surname. The change will not be resented by Dark Ilosaler, If they have no better to offer In her regard, than the Incriminations and calumny printed over the sea of the names that have humiliated them. “The atmosphere In which wo live has a peculiar effect on our mental as well as upon our physical health. The press, too, works a strong in fluence upon our judgments and opin ions. Atmospheric conditions, In cer tain parts of Ireland this Summer, were foggy and unsuitable to unpre judiced conclusions—we refer to the political atmosphere. The press were better unprlnted. Truth was not Its aim and Its lmpressslons were made at the point of the bayonet and the' suggestion of the cunning little Welshman, who footed us again. These we offer as an apology for the clouded mental conditions of our fellow countrymen mentioned above. “Personally, we see no reason for all this lamentation. For two long months we went over the old stone roads of gallant Tipperary and never did we see a shot fired. For two long months we traveled—sometimes it was difficult—from north to south, from east to west, and thank Ood we are proud to be able to say that we never saw one of these Irish mur dered. No doubt there were plenty of fine type of young men with rifles and revolvers, no doubt there was some trouble of some kind, but give them a chance, don’t call them by all the filthy names at your command, don’t tan the flame, don’t make mountains out of moles, keep your hands off and things will ultimately right themselves. "It is strange how few there are who really understand the present trouble In Ireland. It is also strange that many of those who pretend to understand absolutely miss the fun damental principle. But It Is strang er still that many who write on It, even theologians and other dignitar ies, make use of such sweeping exag gerations that they feed the public with much that is not true. “The trouble in Ireland to-day Is not the Civil war. for that Is not ser ious; the real trouble is the old trou ble, the rope by which Ireland has hung from the scaffold for years is tightening every day; the head is about to be separated from the body, the nation Is on the dissecting table and the real Irish are making the last effort to battle the anesthetic of allegiance and partition. "But since we have mentioned this Civil war, let us see In whose favor hangs the balance of right. To es tablish this it will be necessary to examine facts and apply them as best we can. What was the civil author ity in Ireland at the outbreak of this local scrap? The second ‘Dair elect ed by the people decreed, on May 20, authorizing elections— "(1) That in order to maintain peace and produce stable govern ment, the national position required that the Republican and Free State parties in the ‘Dail’ go forward as one body to the electorate. "(2) That after the elections a national coalition ministry be formed to govern Ireland. "A panel of candidates was formed, chosen from the RepubUcan and Free State parties. Labor chose to con test the election, but explicitly stated that it would bind its elected repre sentatives to maintain the Coalition; 379,000 electors voted directly tor tha pact and the Coalition; 132*000 for Labor and tbo Coalition and 114, MO voted against tbs pact. “forty-eight hoars after the Coali tion government met, a section of the army, styled now the free State army, let loose the demon of war on the country, attacked the Republican forces and lowered to the ground the four Courts of Dublin. "Now we come to apply the funda mental principle. By what authority ! did this section of the army Justify their act? Not by the authority of the Coalition or third Dali certainly, for It had never met, and not by the authority of the second Dali, for Its voice on the matter was never heard, and besides its voice was the echo of the former election of ISIS repre senting a vote of 80 per cent ef the Irish people, claiming their right to the green, white and gold of the Re public. Hence, It Is clear that the "Stgters" were faithless to their pact and could claim no justification for the act that has made them small in the eyes of all 'u who respect the right and the pc r of existing au thority. Even to this day they are wrong. The Free 8tate, even yet, has no right to govern Ireland. The people did not vote for a Free State govern ment. They voted for the Coalition and until the Coalition meets and takes over the reins of government, the lawful authority in Ireland is the Republican party elected In 1918. “But even with this trouble, Ire land is not the dungeon of the terror painted In the press by correspond ents and returned visitors. People go about their business as usual. They are good natured and show ev ery sign of a people who are pros perous. As a matter of fact, the tamers, and consequently the mer chants, of Ireland, have more money to their names to-day than they have had for many a generation. The la borers receive three times the wage they did In 191S. I remember the day when my dad, with an average else farm, could not afford to dress me up In the best shoes and clothes that the market could offer. To-day my youngest brother is a regular ‘swank.’ In a wor', there Is no reason to fear. Give th n a chance and ev erything will come out all right.” EPISCOPAL C URCH SERVICES ~ / Archdeacon Cowan of Elko will hold aervlcee at St. James' Episcopal church In Eureka as follows: Services Friday evening, October 20, at 7 o’clock.

EUREKA COUNTY CHAMBER COMMERCE The Board of Directors of the Eu reka County Chamber of Commerce called a special meeting on October 14 for the purpose of meeting with the members of the County Board of Education and citizens of Eureka in terested in the proposed High School bond issue. After this matter was very thor oughly discussed it was unanimously agreed that this bond issue be en dorsed, and that in a matter which so vitally affected every citizen and tax payer of this conuty. It would be beet to hold a mass meeting at the Eu reka Theatre on Saturday evening, October 21, when every angle of this bond Issue could be placed before the voters for their consideration. At this meeting every citizen and taxpayer will be advised just what obligations they will be asked to as sume, as well as what this money will be expended for. They will also be advised just what they will be called upon to assume in case they see lit to defeat this bond issue. Under these circumstances it is to the interest of every person who can possibly attend to make it a point to be on hand next Saturday evening, as they will at that time be informed as to their obligations under our edu cational system. TO THE VOTERS OF EUREKA COUNTY Not being Interested or connected with any political affiliation, I would like to impress upon the people of Eureka County that, if elected, I will work faithfully against two things— intoxicating liquor and cattle rust ling. . So far as cattle rustling is con cerned, the ranchers alone know the strength of this issue, while nearly all realize what, at least, partial pro hibition would mean. On these Important questions I pledge myself to enforce the law to the best of my ability. HIRAM S. KITCHEN, Independent Candidate for Sheriff of Eureka County. —Advt.

TO BORE FOR OIL AT PALISADE Elko Independent Oct. 12: Pali sade and adjoining territory la to be the scene of oil drilling operations according to a report received here recently. A company in which J. A. McBride, W. S. Dupont, Prince Cat lin. Southern Pacific geologist, W. Ambrose and other local men whose names are not available at this writ ing, is reported to be in process of formation for the purpose of testing the Palisade structure. The plans call for the placing of a drill in the field some time this year it is said. During the Summer of this year a geological party which numbered rep resentatives of the Southern Pacific Company in its personnel as well as a Stanford University professor whose particular study was geology, spent some little time in the Palisade and Carlin dstrlct. At that time the state ment was made that they were inter ested in shale land examinations. It is believed, however, that the deter mination of the local men to test the Palisade structure for oil was based upon the conclusions of the party which made this examination. W. Ambrose, former driller for the Elko Oil Development & Improve ment Company, will be in charge of the drill for the Palisade company it is stated.
