Made fresh daily, 3 for 50 cents, at the Veteran. 8-tf Seeks His Horse andValuable Package Captain Hob O’Donnell, cow punch er and gallant gentleman of the Ne vada desert, is out a horse and out fit and $120 in cash as the result of a brief vacation period spent in the district. The captain would not mind the losses a bit except for the fact that the $120 belonged to a friend who had entrusted it to him for delivery. Ordinarily putting the fund in the hands of the captain would nave been Just as good as put ting it in bank, but on this occasion the captain treated his interior to a bath in Ely spirits and thereafter made the mistake of putting real whiskey on top of the Ely alleged. The real article was procured at East Ely and in the contest that occurred later between the Ely brand and the real thing the captain became reck less of time and place and all other things of the current hour. So that when he bethought himself of the horse and the $120 he had left tied to the saddle, both w'ere numbered among the things absent. He natur ally went to Ely at once, but no trace of the missing outfit was ob tainable there, so yesterday morn ing he presented the case to the sher iff's office along with a diagram cov ering his movements during the night as well as he could set them down. The sheriff’s office is still looking for the animal and the money. There is a bunch entertained that the beast applied wisdom to its movements when it found that the gallant cap tain of the desert trails was other wise inclined and beat It for home, where it may yet be found with out fit and greenbacks all intact. Any how' the many friends of the cap tain hope that he will be able to so report when he gets back to Sho shone. ' LOW BOILER COOKS THREE. Explodes us Engine Works Snow plow, Killing Two Outright. JOPLIN, Mo., March 9.—Two men were killed and the third fatally , wounded one mile northeast of here this afternoon, when a St. Louis & Frisco switch |engine, operating a snowplow exploded. Patrick Casey, | e ngineer, aged 25, Pierce City, and Emerson Piper, 45, conductor, Jop lin, are the dead; while Clyde Erwin 25, fireman, Joplin, was fatally in jured. Erwin said the water was allowed to run low and the consequent press ure burst the crown sheet. Casey and Piper who were in the cab, were hurled aginst the end of the tender by the terrific force of steam and water and were terribly disfigured. Their bodies were literally cooked. Erwin who was on the tender, was thrown 25 feet, alighting in a snow bank, fearfully scalded.

A new automatic float valve has been put in the water tank in front of the engine house. The valve serves a very useful purpose in that | it keeps the tank from overflowing. Carpenter Parsons, who had a foot i badly crushed under a freight train Tuesday, was reported resting as eas I ilv as could be expected at the Step |toe hospital last night. The amputa tion of a part of the foot is deemed necessary. Slow orders maintain at several 'points along the road where damage i was done by the recent floods, but the improved weather and repair work are rapidly helping these pieces i of track back to better condition. The spring season nevertheless has a lot of w ork in store for the con struction department. Main line passenger was delayed three hours and twenty minutes last evening waiting for S. P.’s first through train since the washouts of ten days ago. The time lost by the through train was east of Ogden, schedule being held to between Og den and Cobre notwithstanding the recently repaired track at Loray. The train crew was dubious at Cobre as to whether it would get through, but stated that the orders had been given with entire confidence. HO\l>S STILL HAMPKHKl). CHICAGO.—Traffic managers of I all of the western railroads report heavy new traffic in addition to that which accumulated during the bad weather conditions of a few weeks ago. While general conditions are : much better than they were a month ago there is still much freight to be moved because of adverse operating (conditions, but officials feel that an other six weeks or so will clear up I the situation considerably, as by that time winter conditions will have pass ed. During the early spring the rail roads will face the possibility of heavy floods in the river districts, because of the great snow covering, heavy ice and clogged streams. Grain and coal are now the prinicipal feat ures of the tonnage on the western roads, but the miscellaneous tonnage Is still very heavy and new business is still coming to the railroads. One bad feature the western roads have to contend with is the eastern con nections, which have experienced se rious operating conditions within the last fortnight and have been unable to move freight offered them on ac j count of congested conditions. Dur ing the weest farwestern lines have I fallen into like predicament. This situation keeps the principal gate ways clogged. Some of the North I western lines are receiving a heavier I call for cars from millers, which sug gests a heavier flour movement as I well as other commodities. Some of ! the officials say that taking new bus! ! ness into consideration they have reached about the limit of their ca pacity for the time being at least. In the winter wheat territory the railroad people have had very few I early crop reports and those that have been received suggest that the wheat has had good protection and is in good shape. There has, how ever, been a good deal of freezing and thawing in parts of the south west, which does not do the exposed plant any good. In the general mercantile trade the attendance of visiting buyers was fairly large for this season of the year and the new business was of gratifying volume. In the drygoods WATCH and <■ (JEWELRY REPAIRING' Just Arrived One of the finest lines of Cut Glassware ever shown in Ely. New goods coming in every day direct from manufacturers at prices that can’t be beat. We are always In the lead with first-class goods. Our watcn and Jewelry departments up to date. All work guaranteed first class. UK 8 LUNG OPTICIANS & JEWELERS, Appointed Watch Inspectors for N. N. R. R. All our work is guaranteed. Ely and East Ely market particular attention was paid to staple domestics, prints, knit goods, white goods and all staple and fancy cotton goods. In the clothing trade wide interest was displayed in men’s wear lines and sellers were in receipt of large orders for goods for immediate and future delivery. Job bers also reported their men on the road sending fine returns and it was evident that retailers generally were ready to take on supplies without re striction and supplies in the country are thought to be small. In the local Iron and steel Industry there is a somewhat mixed situation. The pig iron market is shown to be in a very weak state while the mar ket for finished products acted in an opposite direction. In many of the latter lines there is quite a little activity in specifying, and some new business developing. In bar iron particularly, the mills are being pressed for delivery by agricultural implement makers, who constitute the most active branch in the realm of manufacturers. Most of these plants are running overtime and where conditions permit, double turn. There was considerable buying of standard steel rails well distributed over a number of roads. In plates new business is being received in satisfactory volume and In structural material a very good tonnage was placed on the books of fabricators. In billets only small lots were sold, but in merchant bars, the mills re ceived heavy specifications on old contracts. With the spring trade nearly at hand It is believed that there will be no serious cutting of wire products for the reason that it is unnecessary as in a short time ev erybody will have all the business they can handle. The wholesale grocery marKets ex hibited strength without showing any material price appreciations. The de mand for all staples was of good vol ume. Collections were reported gen erally fair. Railroads operating east through Chicago and St. Louis handled more business last week, but have not re turned to a normal operating basis. The belt lines from which many of the eastern railroads get their freight are not in good condition to handle the best amount of tonnage they have in hand, and most of the western roads have not cleaned up sufficiently to be able to accept all the freight of fered them by eastern roads, or to deliver to their eastern connections the traffic they have brought In from the west and northwest destined to eastern territory. In the aggregate business was about the same as last year and slightly ahead of the pre vious week. «here Is a fair amount of business being handled by car ferry lines from the northwest across the lake from Milwaukee to Michi gan lake ports. Coal tonnage is good and there is enough being handled to supply all western requirements. Shipments of other freight from the east to the west are good. A feature of late has been the heavy traffic in automobiles. Shipments to the south and southeast were liberal and about on an average. The movement of grain from the farms and Interior elevators last week was on the whole fairly liberal. Shipments from line houses and country were quite free, while farm ers’ deliveries were reported some what smaller. Northwestern arrivals at distributing points were quite heavy and large'y in excess of the movement reported one year ago. Through the southwest the move ment was fair, though hardly as lib eral as of late, while in the central west the movement has kept up. but. at the expense of supplies at country stations. Climatic conditions were generally mild and seasonable. Crop advices In the winter wheat belt were in the main favorable. Discuss Ditch For Flood Protection Ely council again last night dis cussed a proposed ditch through the city to take care of floods from Rob inson canyon such as made a rag ing river of Aultman street the great er part of last week. It was decided that the members of the council and the city engineer should meet in formally Saturday afternoon and make a personal Inspection of the two proposed ditch routes, namely, down Clark street and in the alley in the rear of the buildings on the north side of Aultman street. At that time definite steps are promised. I he council last night also dis cussed building a platform, 100 feet long, extending from the North ern hotel building to the railroad tracks at Murry and Clark streets, for the Nevada Northern railroad. City Engineer Colwell thought the city should put in a gutter and said that the railroad would plank the I street from the gutter to the tracks, I the Northern Hotel company to lay the plank sidewalk. He estimated | that the gutter and street plunking | would cost |275, of which the city l will pay one-half. He further report ed that he would submit to the coun I cil at its next meeting the sewer as sessment roll. The matter of com pulsory sewer connections and the emptying of present cesspools was discussed and will be further consid ered by the health committee. Arthur Knecht, representing the Brewing Co., was present and ad dressed the council with reference to connecting the plant in Central Ely with the sewer system. The matter will be decided upon by the council at its Informal session Sat urday. The council renewed the liquor 11 cenBe held by Walter Hopecraft, and I allowed the following bills: Alexan der McDonald, $9.50 for picks, etc.; Ely Lumber and Coal Co., $29.45, coal; J. S. Bennett, $10, sacks; H. L. Fuller, $2.65, meals for prisoners; Ely Record, $41, stationery; The Hub, $9, rubber boots; F. W.

Meyers, $2,50, tire; j alarm sign board; White Pine Tele-1 phon Co., $5; Ely Light & Power Co., ; $113.85, city building bill from Sep-: | tember to February inclusive. " ReportofGrand Jury Deferred Until Today Confident expectation that the grand jury would submit its final re port to Judge Mitchell in the district court yesterday afternoon met with disappointment. Judge Mitchell re mained in his chambers until 4:45, more than an hour after the dajourn ment of court, to receive the report, but at that hour it was announced from the jury room that the report would not be presented to the court until today. A large number of tax payers and citizens were at the court house, waiting to hear the report, un til the announcement was made of the postponement. There is under stood to be every reason to expect that some time today the report will be concluded and submitted. Simpson Plea ChangeckJury Question William Simpson, Indicted for as Isault with intent to kill, yesterday afternoon In the district court sub mitted a plea of guilty for that of not guilty. Judge Mitchell will impose sentence tomorrow. Simpson became Involved in a quarrel with E. L. Bar ringer at Star Pointer about three weens ago, during which he attempt led to cut the latter with a razor. Prior to the change of the plea, Attorney Eddy, representing the de fendant, attacked the legality of the Jury pn the ground that the sherlfT Intentionally failed to serve a sub poena on Charles Ackermrfn. Acker man's name was drawn from the ijury box but at the* time of the ser vice of the subpoenas was sick. Therefore, the sheriff did not serve him. Judge Mitchell sustained the challenge of Attorney Eddy and was to have given a ruling upon the question of drawing a new pane] at 4 o'clock. Simpson’s action in enter ing a new plea, however, made such action by the court unnecessary at j that time. WISE AM) OTHERWISE. Half a love affair is better than none.—New York Press. Young Widow.
