Wliile many -claim owners are having their w«srk done, many are postponing this work in expecta tion of the passage of the Bartlett 'bill. The discussion that has arisen over this measure has brought another point to light, namely the advantage that would aocrue if the date for expiration of rights on unpatented claims upon which the work has not Iteen done should be fixed at June 30 instend of Deoember 3t. £>uou a change ra tbe minting > laws would work no one an injury. It would benefit claim owners and miners alike. There are always greater activities in producing mines in the Fall than in the Spring. Many properties reduce their forces in early Spring and add inen in the autumn. The rea son for this is not clear, but it is a known actuality. If assessment work could foe done by the miners during the dall season in the mines, it would insure their steady employment 'throughout the year. Furthermore, many hablahips are encountered in doing work in the late Fail on the surface. The ground is frequently frozen or cov ered with snow. Climatic condi tions make it often impossible to transport man nud supplies to out lying claims. Spring is the ideal season for doing assessment work. In an arid oountry like this, water is the>chief consideration, and in the springtime there are many small wateT courses and springs, which are dry later in the season. The Review would suggest thst Congressman Bartlett place a rider oo his assessment work bill snd change the date fur the expiration of rights from December 31 to June 80. _________ S. P. RESUMES WORK AT HAZEN. Orders having been received from the Chief Engineer, the Southern Pacific oompany resum ed work at Hazen Monday, after a delay of more than two weeks. This work was being rushed by the engineers of the company when a general order was issued ordering all work from Salt Lake to Sparks stopped. This resulted in more than 300 men being laid off, and in all construction work at I in lay, Hnsen, Palisade and other points being stopped. Now the construction depart ment has decided to finish the roundhouse at Hnzen and to other-( wise improve that point, which is now the junction for the Fallon Hazen line and the Nevada-Cali fornia road, which ruus into the southern mining cities. COiNC BACK. Foreigners are swarming back to their old homes this year iu numbers that have never been ap proached in the history of the country. Steamship men declare that before Winter is far advanced 500,000 aliens will hnve returned to their native countries, carrying with them close to 4100,000,000. LIKOK1UNO COLD. “Last winter 1 caught a very severe cold which lingered for week*,” says J. U'quhart, of Zephyr, Ontario. My cough waa ve»y dry aad harsh. The lo cal dealer recommended Chamberlain’* Cough Remedy and guananteed it, bo 1 gave it a trial. One small bottle of it cured roe. I believe Chamberlain's Cough Remed y to be the best I have ever used.” This remedy is for sale by A O LeroaireA Sons. BOYS HERE'S YOUR CHANCE Away down in the little town of Fruitvnle, California, there lives a dark-eyed, lonely maiden who is wearing her heart away for a min er. Now, you bachelors, read the following, get busy with your pens and see which one of yon will land the fair one. The following letter was received in Manhattan this week and the name of the writer will be disclosed to anyone who applies either to Secretary Wolfe of the local miners’ union or at the Mail office. Following is the let ter: Fruitvale, Nov. 18, ’07. “To whom this may concern: “I realize a great liberty 1 am taking by addressing this letter to an unknown hand, but it is really much less than it seems, for it is with the greatest trepidation that 1 write on the following subject, owing to the fact of its peculiari ties and boldness, or otherwise like that from the hands of an in sane person, will therefore beg your pardon and trust that such will be far astray from judgment. “Now my views are this; I aoi looking for a husband, preferably r miner. 1 want one of good looks, not over -the age of 24 or 2fi years, fairly educated, mnst be dark com plected, at least brown eyes. “1 anr 19 years of age, business educated, also rather dark, consid ered good looking, 1 suppose. I don’t like to boast of my looks, but 1 am uot ashamed of them. 1 am 5 feet tall, next of all being au ex e Hent housekeeper. I can also play the piano aud sing, but these things really don’t come necessary to prove the faith of a good wife, do they nut? 1 am of a very lov ing disposition and I want eurree ponder to also be of the same type. My folks are living aud I have got a good home, but I won’t always have a father and mother to look after me. “Now I suppose whoever gets this letter will think 1 am some homely, uneducated, lame? or blind, old maid, that can’t get a husband. “Well, as I never before put such a subject as this to the tip of a pen, have written it somewhat awkwardly, so until a future ans wer is at hand, 1 will close for this time. .Siucerely yasirs, “Miss-—, “P, 8.—Pardon this awful scrib bling. I would just like to be hid and watah this letter being hand ed around, well in the case 1 am perfectly willing to be laughed at.” •—Manhattan Mail. SUES UNCLE SAM. Dennis Scully, Deputy United States Surveyor, residing at Aus tin, Nevada, has brought suit in the United Str tes Cirouit Court at Carson against the United States of America for the sum of $9,932. 85. Scully is his own attorney in the case and his complaint con sists of about sixty closely written pages. Scully says ho secured the con tract to do eertnin surveying for the Government in Nevada am that he not only did this work but also a large amount of additional work. He says that the Govern ment has fniled to pay him for any of his work and he now files Buit for the total amount and also in terest on the sum. He demands interest on the sum at the rate of 1 per cent the mouth, which amounts to $2,228. The plaintiff places his work at the rate of $20 I the day for tho period of time. STRIKE ON AGAIN. Goldfield is again “stricken.” The strike this time is for the pur pose of securiug cash wages, in stead of being paid in the bank paper, which is uow passing cur rent and without discount in other business transactions. Local Union No. 220, Western Federation of Miners, voted unan imously Monday night to strike until the mine owners signed an agreement to pay in cash, or re deem in cash the bank paper is sued for wages. It is u ldt-rstood that this guaranty clause refers only to mining companies and that; teasing companies must pay the! coin. With the exception of sevetal leasing companies in ore now pay ing coiD all the properties in the camp are shut down, with the far ther exception of leases that are operated by their owners. It is estimated that 1100 miners are out of work and many are leav ing the camp. This comes at an inopportune time for the men, but no severe hardships will be exper ienced by the companies, because the increased smelter rateand slow ness of settlements would probably have caused a temporary shutdown anyway. An effort will be made to in crease the local supply of cash and rotire the scrip, which will be pos sible as soon as the other cities on the coast go on a cash basis and thus prevent heavy drafts npon the local bank. The situation will also improve as soon as the State aud the Nye &. Ormsby bauks re sume business. Tits strike is being conducted inan orderly fashion. There has been no violence and none is threatened.—Goldfield Review. TONOPAH CONDI TIONS IM PROVE. The 'lending mines of Tonopnh will pay their men in cash on tbs 10th of Decern tier. All the mines doing their business through the Nevada First National Bank, which includes the Tonopah Min ing company, Tonopah Extension, Nevada Smelting Mines corpora tion the United Green water, as well as a number of smaller couoerna, are sending in tire cash to mahe up the balances for this purpose. The Montana-Touopah, the Midway aud other mines doing business through the Tonopah Banking cor poration, have signified their in tention of doing the same thing. The MacNamara will probably do as was done last month—pay half cash and half *11 clearing house certificates. These latter were easily disposed of to the merchants, to whom the certificates were as geod as cash. This means that there will be -at least flat),000 in sound money <-come into the camp Cor general distribution err the 10th inst, aud will he so much more money for general circulation. Indians say that the Winter is ts he a mild one, and give as a reason that there are few pine nuts. lllllouiinei* and Constipation. For years I was troubled with bilious ness and constipation, which made life miserable for me. My appetite failed me, I lost my usual force and vitality. Pt^ain preparations and cathartics only ! made matters worse. I do not know where I should have been today had I not tried Chamberlain’s Stomach and Liver Tabiota. The tablets relieve tbo ill feeling at once, strengthen the di ! gestive functions, helping the system to doits work naturally.—Mku.'Ro8a Potts, Birmingham, Ala.
