In Mason last Monday, the T8th,
George W. O Neil and C. R. Edison,
deputy special officcers for the de
partment of justice, arrested Charley
■*" Wye, a Chinese, who runs a resturant
in the mining town. At the time of
his- arrest Wye had on his person
$1,000 worth of opium that he had
just taken out of the express.
Officers, O Neil. and Edison had
heard that he expected,the shipment
and on his taking the package from
the express office followed, Wm home
*t and made the arrest.
Wye was given a hewing before
U. S. Commissioner Smith, who held
him to appear before the next term

WHEREAS, The facilities which
proved so efficient for the training of
soldiers at the American cantonments
and particularly at Gamp Lewis, Am
erican Lake, Washington, are still in
existence and will be continued for
the instruction of those who may en
list in the army henceforth; and
Whereas The instruction now in
cludes not only the 'highest type of
physical development, but also the
courses along academic lines as well*
hs trades and practical training in
trades and commercial arts;
Now, Therefore, I, Emmet D Boyle,
Governor of the State of Nevada, by
authority in me vested, do, by this
proclamation, call to the atteneion of
all young men, who are now consid
ering their future course, the many
advantages which are offered at Camp
Lewis and other training camps which
are still operating, for the obtaining
of perhaps the most pratical and use
ful training and education in all ac
tivities of life that have ever been
placed within their reach by any
branch of the government.
The forgoing suggestions are made
to call attention to the many radical
changes that have been ^made in
connection with the training of enlist
ed men in the last four years. This
change is so extensive and the op
portunities offered are of such value
that no young man—paniculaly of
limited means—should make a deci
sion as his future course without
making an earnest inquiry into the
opportunities which the government
now offers to him through the med
ium of enlistment in . the Regular
Army of the United States.

long fly which was grabbed up
