A FINANCIAL VIEW.
It isn’t in European human na
ture to resist the opportunities for
investment tlmt are afforded by
the low prices of Americnn rail
road and other securities, and the
dispatches show that the shrewd
est foreign judges realise that
prices have reached low ebb tide.
A Holland banker is quoted in
Monday's dispatches as advising
investment in American stocks
and bonds, and the same dispatch
foreshadows a rise in the rate of
interest in England and on the
continent to prevent violent with
drawals of gold for America. Tak
ing these t*o factors together, it
is not difficult to understand why
the pressure relaxed in New York
and other money centers yesterday
and the situation cleared ma
terially.
Another significant change for
the better was the rise in oopper
quotations, both metal and stocks,
a change that effects the west im
mediately for the better. In view
of tho fact that present prices on
copper are close to the cost of pro
duction, and that the large pro
ducers have all curtailed their out
put, tho advance was to be expect
ed, though it had not been expect
ed so soon. Copper around 13
cents is n goal deal like wheat at
50 to 00 cents; it has reached
about the limit of low prices under
prcseut conditions of production
and is almost as safe to hold as
any material thing that cau be
bought.
Just now it looks ah though the
housecleauing in the New York
banks while too violeutand drastic
to he pleasant, had been inaugur
ated soon enough to prevent more ,
dangerous disturbance later on.
For the first time in their history
the trust companies are subjected
to scrutiny as to their big opera
tions just as the national banks
and other clearing house institu
tions Hre. The system ought to
have been adopted long ago, as the
event proved, but it brings assur
ance now of security for deposi
tors and the general public which
was lacking before, and that means'
added confidence for investors the
world over who may bo interested
in Amcricun securities.—Salt Lake
Herald. _
CUCENHEIM FA
VORS SILVER.
“Since ccming West, I linve
found a strong sentiment in favor
of the government helping out the
real uicuey stringency by the pur
chase of liberal quautitiee of the
white metal and coining it into >
dollars. It is believed that $50,-1
000,000 worth of it might be
bought and so used tit tho best In
terests i»f the entire country.
Around present prices that would
provide nearly $100,000,000 of Dew
real money and the government
would hardly miss the amount of
gold it would need to pay out for
the metal,” said Solomon Guggen
heim in an interview in Salt Lake
a few days ago.
The Southern Pacific Compnny j
has posted a bulletin atWintie-j
in ticca announcing that the com-1
pany wilt give a lot at Irulay to all
Winneraucca employes and move
their houses and barns and other
property free of cost.
LIKUKBINO COLD.
‘•Last winter 1 caught a very severe
cold which lingered for weeks," says J.
U quhart, of Zephyr, Ontario. My
cough was very dry and Imrsh. The lo
cal dealer recommended Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy and guauanteed it, so 1
gave it a trial, Oue small bottle of it
cured me. * I believe Chamberlain’s
Cough Remedy to lie the best I have
ever used." This remedy is for sale by

NEVADA HAS
FOUGHT
TROUBLES
VET CAMPS FAITHFULLY HAVE RE
WARDED OPERATORS ALL OVER
THE STATE.
“Nevada’s great mineral fields,
carrying gold, silver, copper and
leaQ, have within the past six years
produced over $1,000,000, and the
aggressive a id practical work now
being advanced in the older dist
ricts, as well as the new, is a posi
tive assurance that the next six
years will witness an output at
least three times this amount, for
in every district in the State where
judicious operations have been
prosecuted results that have been
obtained warrant the opinion that
the mine industry is indeed in its
infancy,” said a well known Ne
vadan to the Salt Lake Tribune
last week.
“Certainly Nevada is the great
est mining region on the face of
the earth,’’ he continued, “and
the rapid strides in production
from a few hundred thousand dol
lars a year or two since to nearly
$5(1,000,000 the present year, indi
cates that the value of the mineral
bearing area within the confines
of that state ulone is hardly green
enough in the most sanguine im
agination. Every mountain range
in the state which lias been at all
prospected lias demonstrated the
strength not only of the precious
metal bearing ores, but the baser
minerals. The former has been no
small factor in financial circles,
and the product of the latter lias
been devoted to science and art.
“Ah a matter of fact, from one
end of the state to the other, n dis
tance of more than 500 miles,
great zones of copper, silver, lead
and gold have been developed to
such nn extent that the great
smelting plants of the country are
unable to handle the enormous
output, and notwithstanding this
very serious handicap to these ex
tensive ojterations, perfect confi
dence of the mining operators has
never ubated for one moment. The
lack «f water, proper transporta
tion facilities, adverse financial
conditions and other unfavorable
surroundings have in no degree
whatever been a damper on the
energy or determination to explore
and develop these great mineral
bearing shoots at depth.
“It should he remembered that [
the present remarknble annual out
put has been secured by the ex
penditure of vast sums and by
scientific research, and yet it really
is the present work of development
through which Nevada will be in
debted fwr the increased output
for the future. This work is not
confined to any one district, but
giant mergers have been formed
all over the state for the purpose
of operating at depth. Many of
the older properties have the record
production of hundreds of millions
of dollars, and when conservative
expenditures is considered with
reference to big operations, and
the latest scientific methods for re
covering the values are utilized
an I exercised, these oil properties
which were famous in their day
again will be to the fore with an
output very much in excess, no
doubt, of the old time record.
in the new helds operations are
being advanced on such a scale as
will warrant the belief that an out
put not at all insignificant may be
anticipated from them. The nortln
ern part of the state is driving
ahead with determination nnd ag
gressive action prompted by per
fect confidence in the central and
southern parts of the state are
equally active in aggressively ox
ploring copper deposits of unex
ampled richness and strength.
“It will be more than 20 years
hence before Nevada will be in the
zenith of its strength as a mineral
producing region, and it can posi
tively be stated as a fact that de
velopment has only been necessary
to accentuate the great wealth and
the enoimous richness of these
zones at depth.”
BARTLETT’S FOUR
MEASURES.
Congressman Bartlett left Reno
last Sunday night for Washing
ton. He has four measures that
he will introduce at once. One
calls for the free coinage of silver;
another is aimed at an increase in
the appropriation for the Federal
building at Reno, the third is to
have the United States take up the
smelting business as one of the de
partments of government aud the
fourth remitting annual assess
ment work on mining claims for
1007.
_
NO SPECIAL SES
SION.
Governor Spnrks Monday after
noon issued a proclamation declar
ing that there will be no special
session of the Nevada Legislature.
He gave as his reason for be
lieving that a special session is
not necessary, that a majority of
the people of the State are op
posed to such a session. He also
declared that in his opinion the
special session if called would be
of no material benefit to the people
and would ndd to the expenses of
the State and indirectly to the
taxpayers.
SPARKS ROBBERS
FOILED.
A desperate and determined ef
fort was made to rob the station
at Sparks Sunday night about 7
o’clock. There was $<50,000 there
at the time. The statiou closes
early on Sunday, aDd so it was
that the watchman was astonished
when he found the windows brok
en open. He made an immediate
investigation and discovered that
burglars had effected au entrance
by the aid of a crowbar and other
implements. Judging by the sur
rounding circumstances, they must
have got to work immediately pre
vious to his approach, and had
been frightened off by the sound
of his footsteps.
The meeting of the i*stitute of
the teachers of White Pine. Lander
and Eureka counties will be held
in Ely, commencing Monday, Dec.
16, next. President Stubbs and
Professor Adams of the Nevada
State University will be instruct
ors, and State Superintendent Or
vis Ring will atteud as well as
District Superintendents Bray of
Reno and A. B. Lightfoot of Eu
reka.

For years I was troubled with bilious
ness and constipation, which made life
miserable for me. My apsetite failed
me. I lost my usual force and vitality.
Pepsin preparations and cathartics only
made matters worse. I do not know
where I should have been today hud 1
not tried Chamberlain's Stomach and
Liver Tablets. The tablets relieve the
ill feeling at once, strengthen the di
gestive functions, helping the system to
do its work naturally.—Mas. Rosa Potts,
Uirminglmiu, Ala. Tbehe tablets are
for sale bj’ A D Lemaire & Sons.
The Government is now running
most of its mints to their full ca
pacity, and severnl million dollars
in gold ar> being coined daily
from accumulated bullion. It is
also estimated that nearly one bil
lion dollars in gold has been im
ported from foreign countries.
The national banks have also been
issuing currency almost without
limit, and the government has
placed hundreds of millions of
dollars on deposit in various banks
throughout the country. Then
there are the clearing house certi
ficates issued in almost every town
in the country, amounting to sev
eral billion dollars. As soon as
confidence is restored end the peo
ple quit hoarding, there will be
more money in circulation than
there ever was before.
Reno police are clearing the
town of liophends.
