dav with the arrival ot the morning
train and' immediately began their un
official caucuses, but it was not until 8
o'clock last evening that they got to
gether in the assembly chamber and
stood a chance of putting a ticket
through. And when they did meet three
of the dry Democrats failed to appear,
for what reason was not stated. Those
absent were Booher of Elko, McCall of
Churchill and Ernest of Esmeralda.
The other eighteen, however, after a
three-hour session, and following a lot
of trading, put a ticket through.. The
eighteen, though, do not constitute a
