MULDOON and LESLIE HESSE Proprietors subsequently construed the act to mean that both end and side lines were con templated by the act. and that when a patent was once obtained the paten tee was not permitted to follow the vein on its course bevond the surface boundaries. This explains the nn. why the Comstock lode mines were fever patented. So, they still hold their rights under the Uy-Laws and i Rules and Regulations of Virginia Mining District, adopted in 1859, which have leen carefully recognized by con gress. The act of 1872 exeatlv chamrrd the miner's rights under his location, and allows him all veins, lodes, and ledges, the tops or apices of which are within the boundary lines of !,; lo cated claim, which must not be more than 1MJ0 feet in leng'li and 300 feet on each side ot the cemer of the vein. Now, w ia: the quarrel was about on the Comstock, I can only imagine, as I find no records in the reports. The rules and regulations of the miners limiting the locator to only one vein, and the Comstock being a mineralized zone, containing at least three veins, with unaltered country rock between ilVJ I... . - the initiators w Kv an(1 hVnS wider than 600 fet. the ques- 3 . i . . . niiuidm arose wiietner tne lode lo cation contained one .ore more veins.

Reno Odd Fellows, 125 strong, came of Car son City on a special train Saturday night and returned early Sunday morn ing. The trip was taken as part of the annual tour of inspection made by Grand Master Tate Williams of thp grand lodge of Nevada. The grand officers accompanying Mr. Williams were Grand Patriarch Earl Norris, Grand . Secretary William Sutherland, Grand Treasurer C. No- vacovitch, and Grand Warden Harry Riley. Many other post grand masters and other grand lodge officers accom panied the party, which consisted of the inspecting party. Reno lodge No. 14, the Odd Fellows band and the Can tons, which are the uniformed branch of the lodge. The number present in this city when the meeting was called to order was in excess of 200 and among this number was a large class of candidates who were given Reno lodge. Following the initiation speeches were made by each of the grand officers and the evening was closed with a banquet. Road Affairs Told In Highway Bulletin TO PLACE LIGHTEN CHARGE OVER (1 JOB Following dismissal of a charge of second degree burglary against E. Johnson, local auto service station proprietor, when his case came up for preliminary hearing this afternoon, William Muldoon and Leslie Hesse, owners of the Taxi garage declared a misdemeanor charge will be placed against Johnson tomorrow.

THOMAS PEARCE WILT- MANAGE TALLAC RESORT partis announcing the anoointment of Thomas Pearce, formerly assistant manager of the St. Francis hotel in San Francisco, and well known in th; city, to the position of manager of the Anita Baldwin oroDertv at Tii, niiav, Lake Tahoe, have been received in this city from San Francisco. Pearce is a former Virginia Tin man, at present interested in the Con cordia mine at that place. He has long been idntified with the hotel busi ness in San Francisco. The erection of the new inn at Tal- lac will be completed this year, it is oelieved, and Pearce will have full charge. Burhank, Messick and Risins were the judges appointed in 1865 to preside in the district court. Storey county, and both Messick and Rising told me in the eighties that fabulous prices, or fees, if you prefer, were paid to mining ex perts from I-Inglana and Germany to testify during the litigation, and that the miner's pick had disproved all the theories advocated and advanced by with reference to the Comstock lode, and I personally know that miners re fer to the west, east, and middle veins on the lode, indicative of the particu lar place where they happen to be em ployed. In all probability the several contending parties concluded to com promise, and accept the one-lode theory and issue stock on the basis of the com promise in settlement. It is likely also that the high price of experts forced them to compromise in self-defense. ALFRED CHARTZ. Reopening of Lahontan Plant As we go to press, plans are being completed for the early opening of the Lahontan Sand and Gravel Plant of the department located on the Hazen-To-nopah line of the Southern Pacihc Company near the Lahontan dam. ThU plant was built by the department dur ing the year 1920 for the min.ose of furnishing washed sand and gravel for concrete highway construction through out the western part of the state. It has a capacity of about four luinchvil to;:s of sand and gravel per dav, the proportions running about sixty ner cent sand and forty per cent gravel. The sand produced at this plant is of unusually high test, is washed abso lutely clean, and is to be used exclu sively , on all concrete highway con struction. No other sand in the state approximates this sand in hidi tcts This plant was constructed during the period of extreme hiuh costs of la bor and materials and as a result prob ably cost fifteen to twenty-five ner cent more than if built at tire present time. However, even so, it has proven a good investment. The value of the plant is written off over a period of vears. against the jobs to which materials are furnished in proportion to the tonnage furnished, and two years' oneraiion of the plant has demonstrated that we can deliver materials at railroad points un der the price of delivery from other lo cal and outside points. It is antici pated that this season's costs will be lower than previous years because of the lower labor and supplies costs The immediate reopening of the plant win also help to relieve the local un employment situation, and as the need for more materials arises the working force will he increased to a double shift. Snow Removal on Highway The unusually heavy storms of the past month have presented unusual difficulties to the prompt removal of the snow from the pavement and the keeping open of the Reno-Carson road for motor traffic. The first storm was so heavy that the snow-plows first placed in service were too light for the wrk and as a consequence were en tirely demolished in a short time. This necessitated a short delay until heavier equipment was gotten ready, and when caterpillars were sent out with heavy plows no difficulty was ex perienced until twelve-foot drifts in cuts were encountered between Washoe and Lowers. On of these drifts was very deep and consisted of almost solk uc, so mat the tractors in attempting to ,co through would climb up on the drift, the treads would cut ut the ice aim leave the frame of the machine hung on the ice. This one cut was so bad that it required three tractors and several days' work to break a road through. For approximately ten miles the snow on the level measured four feet and. with constant drifting from the winds, the highway when finally opened presented a high wall of snow on each side. The ruad was closed exactly two weeks between Washoe and Carson City. The heavy caterpillar tractors received from the povp ........ have proven their worth on this sort of work, and we arc now equipped with heavy snow-plows, so that even should the snowfall be equally heavy during coming winters we do not anticinatc much difficulty in keeping the road open. Application for Reduced Rates The department is now nrenarintr for niing with the public service commis sion and the various railroad com panies applications for reduced local and joint through freight rates on ce ment, crushed rock, gravel, and sand to be used for highway construction. In the year 1919 reduced rates were granted over certain lines, but when all rates were increased twenty-five per cent under the authority of the inter state commerce commission these spe cial rates were increased in the same manner as other rates, and it is now the belief of the department that rates should be established equal to or lower than the 1919 rates. Special rates will be requested on construction materials from points of origin to the various towns where paving work is contem plated in order that the cost of material may be held to a minimum. OLD NEVADA PIONEER BURLED AT YERINGTON s With the death of John Carroll Far. rell on March 4, Nevada lost another of its p.:oneer settlers, who has lived in this section and California sine 1851. The body was taken to Yerine. ton, accompanied by relatives and the tuneral services and interment took place there, the Journal says. John Carroll Farrell was lorii on October 1. 1843, at Florence, Ala., and crossed the plains with his parents in lcol. In 1852, his parents settled at Stockton, Cal., where his father fol lowed the trade of stone mason until about KSoO. The death of his father occurred in 1865 and Mr. Farrell and his mother moved to Eldorado Canyon, where he went into the wood business, hauling by ox team to Silver City, Vir ginia City, and Dayton. After several years the family moved to Mason Valley and located on thi old Jake Fox ranch, which is now known as the Shelds ranch. In 1872 they located the Greenwood ranch which is now known as the Pcrazzo ranch. During 1875, while living on the Green wood ranch, he was married to Miss Elizabeth Kerns. The couple had twelve children, ten of whom are still living. He is survived by his wife and the following children: Mrs. James Curran of Reno; Mrs. William For sythe of Wabuska; Mrs. George Mar tin of Verington; Mrs. Milton Dohcrty of Carson City; Mrs. Joe Delaney of Alatrcd.-i; John Farrell of Reno; Mrs. Lillie Voting of Sacramento; James Farrell of Sparks and William and Joseph Farrell of Wabuska.
