ELKO, NEVADA, FRIDAY, JULY 31, 1914 NUMBER 31 INSTRUCI1UNS FOR FIRST AID WORK To restore artificial respiration th>' United States bureau of mines decries all mechanical aids, for the reasini that they only cause loss <>f valuable time and possibly of life that should be saved by prompt remedial measure* on the spot as soon us possible. The way to do is first to place the uncon scious man face down. This causes the tongue to drop forward in the mouth. Then |iull the arms oirr the head nr.til the I orgs are ex panded to iheir full capacity. Kneel ove r the body with the balls of the hands pressing the lower iib?. the life raver thri wirg his body forward with an even motion m<l faster than sixteen times a minute, putting pressure on grud uallv producing nearly natural breathing. Inductions in thii sys tem can b 1 followed by the least intelligent wcrker after a single demonstration and any man so taught can apply the method of resuscitation ar.v place or any where without loss of time.

Ilia Rodeo committee held a meeting Saturday night and set Sept. 7, 8 and as the date of the Rodeo. A cornmitto also looked over the hall grounds and decided to enlarge the grand stand and put n roof over it; ilso to enlarge the grounds and make a quarter mile race track inside trie fence. LIGHINING STRIKES BONANZA MACHINE Lightning got loose yesterday in and around Tonopah. A fl?sh struck the pole back of the Bonan za office. One charge followed the ground wire into the earth, while another skipped from the first pole to another pole and followed the wire into the Bonanza press room, where it burnt in two the wire that held an electric bulb over the linotyiK.' machine, burr.ed out the fuse and damaged the rrotors. Those who happened to be in the room at the time surmised that the Mexican revolution had come to Tonopah. Outside the city the display was appalling. John Delks, the trouble shonter of the power company, said the desert was covered with huge fiery balls that rolled around and set the sagebrush on fire in a dozen different places. L)elks is used to lightning, but he sa.' s he never saw anything to compare with that of the pist few days.? Bonanzi. WOOUNdVe TARIFF Uuring the recent conference of wool producers and manufacurers held in Washington, figures were presenteJ in the tenate showing that wool was bringing higher prices in Oregon that; at any time in the last twenty-five years, with the- exception of two years. The showing was made by Senator Chamberlain of Oregon. Senator Smoot's comment was interesting. "Were it not," he paid "for the fact that ttierc is a ?hertane of 2 'JO, 000, (100 pounds of wool in the world these figures would not he presented." No doubt the Senator from Utah was a good deal embar rassed. For he was one of the builders of the late, unlamented Schedule K, and he, almost more than any one else insisted that free wool would ruin the wool grower. But it has not done so. On the contrary prices have increased to such an extent as to curtail buying orders. The clip at least in the Far West, is undoubtedly considerably smaller this year than last. B?t suppose the price of wool had gone down and that ii was shown that there had been an increase of 240,000, 000 pounds in the supply ? would bmoot have accepted the explana tion? lie assuredly would not, but would have charged the low price to free trade in wool. As it is now, he is greatly?and properly - impressed with the influence of demand mid supply as price regula tors. At least it may be said that Providence has been good to the Demjcratf from the Smout point of view. When Smoot and the otheis go before audiences of farm ers and trll them that the tariff hns reduced prices ? without admitting the existence of any other factors ? the Democrats can point to wool, and they will be justified in doing so. Ortninly prices arc all the growers could ask. ? Indianapolis News. CAN HE 00 II? The in >iiien(ous question now agitating candidates is; Can a candidate treat himself and not count it once as Kip Van Wrinkle mod to do? Such Wealing is fairly within the term and conditions of many other equally ludicrous, senseless and purposeless inhibitions contained in the so-called Purity of Flection Inw, because it might cor rupt the barkeeper. Another ques tion: Can a candidate refrain from collecting debts duo him by an elector? And If lie does so refrain, can lie bo convicted of corrupt practice, in retaining the friendship of his debtor and thus influencing his vole? These serious questions ought to i he submitted to the Supreme Court for nn early deeieion.? Carson News equal suffrage meeting i ' . Miss Anna Martin, president of I Hie Equal Suffrage Association of ! Nevada, and Miss Mabel Vernon, state organizer, addressed a fair sized meeting in front of the Com mercial Hotel Thursday night. JudHe Taber called the meeting to order and introduced Miss Mar tin as the fir.-t speaker. She was received with applause. In the course of her remarks Miss Martin said that "Nevada's greatest ne d is for more women as Nevada has the lowest percentage of women in any Mate of the United States 18,000 women over 21 years of age as compared with -10.000 men. A great state with prosperous homes and farms ran be huilt up only by men and women working together, and Nevada, the only non-suffrage state in the we3t, ?honld be made an inviting place for women to come to. b? enfranchising them at the next election." At the conclusion of Miss Mar tn s remarks, Miss Vernon was in troduced. She called attention to the fact that the demand of wo men for the right of suffrage is not based on the prirciple of ab stract justice alone, but on the de sire of women to continue to do the work that is traditionally theirs ? the care of the home and children. 'Government today," said Miss Vernon, does not mean merely the maintainance of armies and navies, of jnils and uenitentiaries, but it rncAns the education of ihil dren, the carc of the sink, thp pre vention of disease and the regula tions of affairs that have to do with the home. The government is do ing a goodly share of the work that was once entiref> in the tands of women and absolutely under tneir control. Women are asking for power to do their own work effectively and expeditoualy." She appealed to Nevada men to live up to the reputation for pro gress and liberality that western people have all over the country. She declared that Nevada would be marked as a backward or pro gressive slate, according to the ac tion the men take on * woman suffrage at the next election. The ladies were given a respect ful hearing and their remarks were frequently punctuated by applause. There was considerable noise on the street and the Alabama Min strel band played a piece or two, but the ladies siw-.k to their work and made a very favorable impres sion. They left this morning in their automobile to make a tour of La moille valley.

Nevada. I In answer to the inquiry of friends in this county and other counties of the State, I wish to sBy I will not be a candidate for nomi nation for Governor at the coming primaries.

Edw. A. Ducker ROSSIA A DANCING NATION "Red is the obsessing color of the rpal Russian. His word for beauti ful is 'preskrasnee,' " says a writ er, which means literallv 'very red.' A peasant girl in gala dress is red from the scarf on her head to her bright red boots, often relieved by the white blouse, on which again is red embroidery. The snow white steps of state in the Krpmiin are called the 'red staiis' as a tribute to their beauty and with no sug gestion of their color. "Russia is not barbaric. It is simple Bnd childlike, whence its enormous charm. And it is a dancing nation; the dan-es are na tional, unique and quite oriental. Peasants may be seen in their log built villages dancing away until they almost drop from latigue'. The Russian dnnce is full of vital ity, spontaneous and strenuous; the eastern dance is restrained, suggestive and sometimrs ?iiiuuus. "Russian TiUraturc is> supposed to ba consistently giovmy. Of course there is u tendency to de pression, but it would be equally correct to assume that- German lit erature consists only of classical annotations and scientific treatises." ? Chicago News. STOLE A VALISE The ofTiccrs were notified this forenoon that a valise containing clothing, knies, etc., the property of Dave Turner, a former co >k, had been stolen from the Commercial Hotel ann part of its contents sold to th?- second hand store. While Constable McMurtrey and Turner were at the second land store a man who gives his name as Frank Smith came in with some knives and tried to sell them. Turner identified the knives as li i j and Smith wns arrested. He claimed that he had been given the knives to sell and knew nothing about their being stolen. He offered to point out the man who gave him the knives and soon pointed out Harry Vest sis the man. Vest claimed that the property va-. his nrid that he had brought it from Reno. He offered to take the u Ulcers to where the valise was hid den and it was finally found in a died in the rear t.f Mr. Harrah's residence. Moth men wrre locked tip and a somplnint charging them with jolty larceny wns filed this aftei toon. Smith stirks to his story h it Vest gave him the knives and hat he knew nothing about their jeing stolen, while Vest has fold ijveral different stories about how ie came in possession of the prop ?rty. Turner was taken sick while vorkir.g at the Commercial and vent to the county hospital. Mo ore going there > e packed his he onuings in the valise and left it at he hotel. On his return from the lospltiil this forenoon ho could not Ind it and notfiied fho officers. WAS II RAY BAKER? The following from Leslie's Weekly has to do with a Nevada man. Could it be possible Brother Rbj- could be the one mentioned? Down they go! How many can didates for magnificent diplomatic posts will br running Congressional elevators a year from now; how many cspirants to $10,000 govern mrntbl positions will he serving as Capitol policemen! Not long ago a hrcczy individual began talking to me at a table in the public sec tion of the House of Representa tives' restaurant. '1 he stranger confided the fact that Senator Pitt man of Nevada owed his election entirely to him. "I am an old news paperman." was the modest infor mation. "I made Pittman wlat he is todar. If he had not followed my guidance Pittman would still be holding down his two-by four job in Nevada." This was illuminat ing but what followed was even more absorbing. "Now Pittman wants to du something for me, but i t is a question of what I can afford to take. Of course, he would make me his private secretary, but you realize that I could not accept anything as trivial as that. Maybe you could suggest some good job whi.'h the Senator might land for me " I intended to he obliging but was not ably to think belter than a ; cnsul-gpiieralship to Berlin or something like thai. Evervthing I mentioned was in the ?8,0')0 class. My friend waved iite aside impatiently. "No" he gesticulated "1 am going after bigger game. Tell me is the head of the United States Civil Service appointed by the president?" He was. "Me far that then," cfme back prompt ly. "1 want to be in a position to hand out a few offices myself. Good diy!" 1 trembled when I thought what might happen to Gen. John Black, chairman of the board of Civil Service Commissioners. By rights 1 should have tipped the general ofT that the Westerner was after his scalp. In fact I. might have done so had I not accidentally run across the Pittman constituent. This time the stranger did not see me firs'. He was too busy taking passes at one of the obscure visitors gallery doors in the Senate. He was cheerfully holding down a $!>00 job. MRS. BENTLEY ON WARPA1H Late Friday afternoon the sheriff's office received n dispatch from Wendover saying that Mrs. E. C. Bentley had left there on No. 1 or 51 for L'lko and to look out for trouble. The dispatch also stated that she had cut her hair off and was dressed in men's clothes and carried a good sized gun. Deputy Sheriff Lamon started out to look for h.?r, but as No. 1 was in he dii not find her. He then notified officers Cotant and Peck to watch for the arrival of No. 51. Between 11 and I'/, o'clock as officer Peck wna passing Dutch Jake's wagon he saw Mrs. Bentley crouching behind it. He took her in custody and locked her up. Late this forenoon she notified Mr. I.umon that she had taken 14 or 15 morphine tablets. He had her taken to the county hospital, where Dr. Hood worked on her and soon had her vomiting to beat the liand. At last reports she was out of danger. Tho Bcntleys havo been In trouble for some time and a few v months ago Mrs. Bentley took a ihot at her hushjnd. Shu told ^ :) dicer Lamon that she was sick ind unable to work and that Bent ey would not help her. Wo know lothing about their difficulties ?rtd refrain from comment. She ( irrived on No. 1 last evening and v as at the Klko hotel at the time ho officers were looking for her. U a late hour this afternoon no ?> barge had been placed against her. si SOCIALISTS OBJECT FAYING FEE Grant Miller appeared at the office of Secretary of State Brodi Run yesterday afternoon and tend ering the sjm of five hundred dol lars requested the filing of the names of himself as the Socialist candidate for United State Sena tor; Martin J. Rcanlan, of Totiopah, for Congress; Win. A. Morgan, of Manhattan, for Governor; W. H. Burton, Yerington for Lieutenant Governor and Atha A. Ritchie of Tonopah. for Inspector of Mines. He also demanded that the other socialist nominees for state offices have their names placed on the ballot, without any fee being paid, claiming that as they have no op position for the nominations, they are the nominees of the party, and that they need not pay for the privilege of going through the i.re lirninary. Mr. Brodigan declined to accede to the demand, which was made in writing, and Mr. Miller says he will bring a mandamus suit to compel him to do so. The idea is to test the primary Ibw, and in cidentally to save several hundred dollars for the socialists, us they have little hope of electing any of their state ticket, it ia purely a matter of principle with them to put a ticket in the field, and prin ciple at $100 per man is so newhat expensive. The matter will be brought up in court early next week. ? Carson News fraWsTnemds The announcement of Francis G. Newlands as a democratic candidate at the primary election for the office of United States senator ap pears elsewhere. Mr. Newlands is so well known to the people of Nevada that it is almost impossible to sav anything in his favor that is not already known. As a representative of the slate of Nevada in the United States Senate, he ranks high as u con structive statesman. His ability, energy r.nd forcefulness are felt among the nation's lawmakers To him, more than any one else in or out of congiess, belongs the credit of the law for the reclama tion of the arid lands of the inter mountain states. This alone should tntitle him to the support of the voters of NevadH. But aside from his record, there is a matter that should appeal strongly to every democrat in the state, and that is the control of the senate by the democratic party. After years of struggling to drive privilege and special interests from Lbo senate the democratic partv ob tained control of that body on the Ith of March 1913. That a despor ite effort will be made at the fall .?lection by the republicans to re* juin control of the senate is known to all conversant with the trend of Dnlitical activity. Nevada is one )f the states counted on to make n k republican gain. Democrats should consider this )hase of the political situation and itand solidly behind Mr. Newlands it the primary and general election. Three should be no wavering in he ranks. The stake is too great to lermit petty jealousies and spite o stand in the way of a glorious lemocratic victory. By supporting iim you arc supporting President Yilson and his iwlicirs. HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL A tourist once happened to meet ho usual "oldest inhabitant" of a illage. In the cour?c of a conver ion he asked the ancient how old e wns. "I bo just a bundled," was the cply. "Well, I doubt if you'll ice ar ther hundred years," said the jurist, trying to make n conversa ion. "I don't know much ahnut that, aster," was tho hopeful response. I ho stronger now than when 1 tarted in my fiiff.t hundred."
