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
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.
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.
“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
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
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
“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,
“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
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
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
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!
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
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
Tits strike is being conducted
inan orderly fashion. There has
been no violence and none is
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

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,
