IN JUSTICE TO BRANSON Newspaper Man Should Receive Some Recompense for Losses The signal victory of the real devel opers of Goldfieid over the disturbers that have just been downed in that camp calls to mind last summer when Mr. Branson the editor of the Gold field Sun was run out of that camp almost a ruined man, because he '1 .iu in his paper to criticise the methods of the I. W. W. organization. He was the one man, along with his cartoonist Buell, who dared to fight these men in the open. The artist was game as a snake all through The trouble. It was at a time when a man took his life in his hands if he dared to publish an American, free speech newspaper and although Branson got out with his life, he had to sacrifice a fortune for daring to be a free and independent American citizen. It would be a mere bagatell for those wealthy mine owners to reim burse Branson for standing out on tho firing line a target for the en-amy when few business men in Goldfieid dared take a similar stand. Goldfieid will make its industrial victory complete when it recoups Branson for his losses either by direct contribution or business patronage. The Appeal believes the latter way would be wholly satisfactory to Bran son. o-o I ST. PUBLICITY COMMISSION How the Receipts and Disbursements of the Fund Will be Handled The editor of the Appeal having been tendered the position of Chair man of the Publicity Commission to advertise Nevada's resources to the world will appoint J. B. Menardi, President of the Reno Commercial League, as one of his associates on the Commission and Milton M. Detch, President of the Goldfieid Chamber, of Commerce as the -other. The Commercial League of Reno will handle and disburse all the funds collected in Western Nevada and the Goldfieid Chamber of Commerce re ceive and disburse all the funds col lected in Southern Nevada, for the use of the Commission, to be used as the Commission may direct to ad vertise all portions of the state alike, without any favoritism to any partic ular locality, as the bill directs. i o-o MISS BERNING'S EDUCATION The money paid by Milton M. Detch and R. L. Colburn toward the education of Miss Berning has been placed in the hands of Prof. Ring who will take charge of the whole matter. The sum donated was $1000, each gentleman will find it to be about the best spent money lha was ever donated for such a worthy pur pose.

"The situation looks much better than it did. It is encouraging to say that least, but it must be more encour aging before the mines, are again opened. The miners mus break away from tne Industrial Workers of the World." o-o "BUSTER" BROWN ARRESTED COIISTROCTIOII COfllEIICED Harry P. Brown, known about the town as "Buster" Brown, and who quietly left the city several weeks agj taking with him over $1,200 worth of mining stock belonging to the Brougher-Mills company, was ar rested yesterday afternoon at Los Angeles by Sheriff Korn on the charge of embezzlement. The arresc came after one of the most spectacu lar chases ever indulged in by the local police. The specific charge on which Brown was arrested was that of embezzlement as tHe result of signing and cashing a check for $122.80 at one of the local banks and using the money to his own ends, i Charges resulting from his taking the I mining stock will likely be preferred after his arrival here. When Brown left here he went immediately to San Francisco and it appears that among other things he shed at that point was his name and adopted that of R. J. Allen. The sheriff's office at this point traced him from San Fran cisco to Oakland, to San Diego, to Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo and several other points, but the officers arrived a shade too late. The Los Angeles police had been notified sev eral days ago and were on the look out for the man and yesterday effect ed his capture. Either Officer Knoblock or Con stable Grant will leave this evening with the necessary requisition papers and return the man to this state, o-o THE HABIAS CORPUS CASE The case of Waterman charged with defrauding people in Iowa by pretending to own some coal mines in Wyoming will be decided in the supreme court Thursday. o-o It is reported tha the stores are all out of rubbers and overshoes. Butter is very Scarce In Carson and a family with some fresh rolls on had is cons-idred fortunate. The Western Pacific road con struction work has begun in good shape in the vicinity of Wells, and a gang of men is engaged in making a cut through a small hill one mile west of town. The character of the country at that point is very hard and according to the ' Wells Herald the heavy blasts which have been put ill have been planly felt in town and the shaking of the earth caused th windows and doors to rattlje. The rapid advance being made in con struction in the eastern part of the state indicate that the windows and doors in the town of Winnemucca will soon be rattling and the blasts of mighty explosives heard in that town. Everything is in readiness for work east and west of Winnemucca. The new railroad company has recently let a contract amounting to $6,000, 000 for the portion of the main line between thJe easteiin state line of California, and Deeth, Nevada, a sta tion on the Southern Pacific. The distance is 826 miles. This closes up all grading contracts for the Western Pacific s main line. West from Salt Lake city the com pany is laying track at the rate o a mile a day, and 120 miles of track have been completed. oo FALLS HEIR TO $50,000 Ut- The Labor Agitator of Goldfieid terly Repudiated by his own People GOLDFIELD, March 26 The var ious trade unions of this city have now utterly repudiated the I. W. W. crowd and it was known that this would take place whenever the min ers could have a meeting by themselves. When the final discussion took place Vincent St. John, who is the head and front of the labor agitation and disturbances here took the floor and tried to speak, but was put down with derisive shouts and cat calls. He was finally told that the question had been overwhelmingly decided and after vain efforts to speak he finally subsided. The Industrial Worker which is the recognized organ of the Industrial Workers of the World has this to say of St. John in its March number: We are told that Vincent St. John has for six or eight weeks been at Goldfieid, Nevada, doing disruption work and trying to do the dirty work of destruction by the use of his gul lible tongue." This about settles the status of the case of St. John, as the Inddustrial Worker is the organ of the order. o-o- AN EXCELLENT APPOINTMENT How Forms are Made up for Chronicle at Goldfieid the the stage in the mining world.

Mr. Butler was in this city recently hunting up evidence in connection with the estate. o-o LOST A bird dog. Color black and brown. With new collar on. Return to oBa ton Bakery and receive reward. When the Governor named Nate Roff to be auditor of Nevada yester day, he appointed a man who is in every way qualified for the position and deserves the honor. Governor Sparks could not have made a better selection. We congratulate Mr. Roff on his appointment and the state on securing such an excellent official. What is the state's gain, however, is Reno's loss, for in becoming auditor of Nevada, Mr. Roff withdraws from the mayoralty contest, in which to date he had a clear field. Journal. The Appeal endorses all of the above. No man has done more for the party than Nate Roff and no man has received less- substantial consider ation than he. The appointment will be endorsed by the entire state. o-o Louis Glass, well known in this city, has. been indicted by the grand jury for furnishing the money in the Tele phone bribery His friends here hope and believe that he will come out of the investigation unscathed. It looks from the testimony as if a man who was caught out is trying to escape by throwing the blame on Glass. "For several days I made up the forms with a gun at each end of the stone," said W. C. Simpson, foreman j of the Goldfieid Chronicle office, who arrived from the mining camp this morning on a brief trip. "The Chron cle was under boycott by the I. W. W. and all of us printers had been given notice to leave town because we would not affiliate with them. The typographical union affiliates with no other organization except the Interna tional and if we took out an I. W. W. card we would not be able to work in any place except Goluneld. We told them we would not join the I. W. W. and that we would not leave town. After that we went prepared for trouble. "They threatened to blow up the Chronicle office, and ever since the boycott was decuared we have had nine deputy sheriffs guarding the building. Every man that walked down Crook avenue was asked where he was going and if he looked sus picious he was ordered back. We are still running and expect to continue in operation despite the oycott of the I. W. W. "Things look favorable for an imme diate and a permanent settlement," continued Mr. Simpson. "The mines will reopen tomorrow and the men who work them will not be members of the I. W. W. They will have their separate organization so far as Gold field is concerned. Things- have ben at high tension, but are being somewhat relaxed now. But even still there Is hardly a man who does not go armel. as no one knows just when something will be done to touch off a blaze of hate that will end disastrously. Everybody goes armed. In most of the business houses signs bearing the legend, 'We do not employ any member of the I. W. W. are sen. Inside m most case3 you will find the proprietor alone trying to wait on his customers. "But that won't last long, and when things do start up again there is going to be some excitement."

The indictment was returned by the grand jury of Plymouth county, Iowa, where Waterman for merly resided. The case was no; completed and the argument wi-11 be continued in the supreme court this morning at 10 o'clock. Waterman is prominent in mining circles in thi-s state. It is alleged that in August, 1904, He Arrives In San Francisco and Will Be Arrested A. telegram was received in this city last night stating that unless Louis Glass, president of the Pacific State and Sunset Telephone company returned to San Francisco and face the thirteen indictments of graft re turned against him by the grand jury, me officers of the coast town would extradke Glass. The telephone maa s now in the southern country sup posedly either at Goldfieid or Tono pah and it is said San Francisco offi cers are already on their way to Ne vada to cause his arrest.

Waterman, according to Kloster, claimed the company had 200 acres of land in Wyoming with a 22-foot vein of first class coal while in truth the company only had a lease on the property and the coal was an inferior grade of lignite. The stock proved to be worthless. The grand jury returned an indict ment against Waterman last month and he was arrested several days agj at Goldfieid. Attorneys Piatt and Detch are representing Waterman and fighting the extradition of the man while Attorney-Genertii Stod dard represents the state. there is small doubt but that it will be honored. Glass i-s well known to a number of Carson City people and has been president of the telephone company which operates here for some time. The grand jury charges that he bribed the supervisors at the rate of $3,500 the head and Abraham Detwiler, the Home Telephone company paid $5, 000 the head. Abe Ruef and his cote rie would no doubt like to see Glass and ascertain why he was slashing prices. SAN FRANCISCO, March 25. Louis Glass arrived in this city to night and the requisition papers which were being prepared for his arrest in Nevada will not be issued. There are thirteen indictments against him for bribery and othor graft in connection with the tele phone cases.
