A bi^ Cadillac driven by Pete Ilor
da-, sheep man and proprietor of tin
Club saloon at Gardnerville, overturn
ed on a sharp curve, two miles north
west of Carson, shortly before "10 o’
clock- Saturday night, killing Pete
Ansorena, one of the party, and pain
fully injuring Ramon Antchondoci
and Pete Larralde, also of Gardner
ville. Borda was injured internally,
but his injuries, it js- now thought, will
not prove fatal
The party left Reno at about 8
o’clock Saturday night and an hour
later, in atempting to stop at the Tav
ern at the foot of Lake View hill,
the brakes failed to work properly
and the car crashed into the fence,
and on resuming their trip, the men
were obliged to shove out by hand.
The machine was driven at a fast
rate of speed toward Carson and
when it hit the hairpin turn 141 the
road leading from Schafer's ranch a
desperate effort was made to apply
the brakes, but without avail, and the
car driven on by a great inertia, shot
.across the road and into the bank,
where it overturned, pinioning Pete
Ansorena under the rear seat and
killing him instantly.
The other men were also caught
under the machine, but managed fi
nally to extricate themselves.
Fire completely destroyed the large
plant at Keeler, belonging to the Nat
ural Soda Products Company a few
days ago T he blaze was discovered
at noon but it had already gained
such headway in the warehouse where
it originated that the entire 150 em
ployes could not check it and the en
tire plant was leveled to the ground
in three hours, with the exception of
the high concentrate and kiln plant.
The factory buildings were situated
at Keeler on the eastern shore of
Owens Lake. The plant had recently
been doubled in capacity and was
turning out large war orders for the
government. The loss is covered by
insurance and representatives of the
principal owners, W. W. Waterson
and M. Q. Wattedson, of Bishop,
Cal., say reconstruction will be begun
at once.
The cause of the fire is so far un
A man known as “The Kaiser”,
who last Tuesday night attacked the
matron of the county hospital at Bat
tle Mountain, has been captured at
Nelson, a" siding on the Western Pac
ific railroad, and is now in jail at
Battle Mountain. He was waiting at
the siding to catch a freight when the
posse found him. There was some
disposition to hang him, but cooler
heads in the possee saved him from
quick execution and he was return
ed to Battle Mountain. “The Kaiser"
is a blacksmith by trade and was run
out of town for forcing his attentions
on the nurse. Returning, he gained
admission to the hospital and hid in
a room, attacking the nurse when she
entered. The nurse is still suffering
from shock and wounds and has not
been able to speak since the attack.
Fishing has been ruined in Hum
boldt County, in all the streams of the
county by the recent cloudbursts.
Fish were washed into the fields and
left high and dry and those remaining
in the streams were killed by the
mud. Jack Kirwin, game warded,
estimates that over 100.CXX1 little fish
will be required to re-tock all tin
streams. lie will apply to the state
fish hatchery, for this amount and will
close the season in the streams re
stocked, for two years. — Rcviev.

The accidental discovery of a large
ledge from three to five feet in width,
carrying along the haniftng wall gold
values from $5 to $5000 to the ton by
four miners, after having abandoned
all hope of realizing a profit on their
work in opening up an old mine in
Mineral County is creating a great
amount of excitement in that sect
ion of the state. The -discovery is
believed to have again brought
to light the I.a Plata vein, or its con
tainuatfon, which was lost in a fault
nearly forty years ago.
The four miners, a few months ago,
secured a location consisting of four
claims, and proceeded to sink a shaft
which cut a ledge of copper-bearing
ore at a depth of thirty feet, from
which they shipped five car loads, re
turning them enough to pay expenses.
Then the shoot war lost and the pros
pectors began lamenting their hard
luck but finally decided to sink a lit
tle deeper, in the hope of picking up
the faulted ledge. For more than a
w£ek they continued sinking, going
through what they thought was a
coarse pyrites or mica, which they
threw over the dump.
The stuff was so unpromising that
it was not deemed worthy of samp
ling. One day one of the party, de
spairing of their work, began pan
ning a small quantity of the rock
from the bottom of the shaft, with the
amazing result that the dirt contain
ed gold. The man panned not less
than $6 in colors, all taken from the
dirty quartz which had been thrown
over the dump.
Developments brought to light a
ledge from three to live feet thick,
which, along the banging wall, prov
ed to be extravagantly rich.. The
four miners are now saving 100 tons
of the rock, which w ill be run through
the La Plata mill.
The point where the rich rock has
been discovered is about one mile
and a half from the old La Plata mine
and is in a direct line with the orig
inal ledge. The La Plata was first dis
covered by “Clubfoot" Adams- and
Tom Bradley and was sold to a com
pany organized by H. M. Yerington
and Knapp and Lawe, who sold it
to an eastern syndicate for several
hundred thousand dollars.
The eastern company began devel
oping the property in the most thor
ough manner, installing a pipe line
seventeen miles long and erecting
and equipping a mill of ten stamps.
When the work was completed the
enterprise came to a halt for some
unknown reason, and it was thought
that the men behind it had run short
of funds.
The mill was never operated a day
on company account, 4j»tt prospectors
in the vicinity have run several tons
of ore through at odd times.
The old La Plata was opened t<#a
depth of 300 feet, where sinking ceas
ed because of the excessive cost of
power. It is believed that the rfewly
discovered ledge is nothing more
than an extension of the fractured
lead of olden days.

Buffalo, X. Y. — That German sold

before the war. thus being able to
speak the American language fluent

American uniforms, is the startling
information conveyed to Mr. John
La Tour, of this city, by his brother,
James Donohue, a private in the U.
S. Marine Corps and the first Ameri
can prisoner to escape ffom a Ger
man prison camp and successfully
make his way back to the American
“I saw a number of German sold
iers in American uniforms," wrote
Donohue, “and all of them could
speak English fluently. One of them
a>ked me where 1 was from and when
I told him Buffalo, he laughed and
said he had been a waiter in a restau
rant there at one time.”
Donohue was captured when knock
ed senseless by a Roche rifle butt and
after being made to work night and
day digging graves for dead Ger
mans and being spit upon by German
officers while at work, he made his
escape by hitting his guard over the
head with an axe. He made his
way back to the American lines, liv

off a German Red Gross dog. He
successfully passed through an A

the American lines.
