MINING MEN INSPECT HAMILTON PROPERTT A party of mining ami busincsr nn-n, composed of Kd Wilson of Kly, Frank X. Clarali.in of Indianapolis, Ind., W. H. Kdwards of Salt 1-ake City, John W. Nyce of Hamilton and John Data, paid a visit to the Hamilton district this week leaving Kly last Sunday morning and returning Tuesday. Mr. Nyce Is permanently located at Hamilton where he has for a number of years been engaged In operating the Jennie A mine. Mr. Garahan Is a nephew of the late M. II. Qarahan. one of the pioneer min ing men of Nevada and who at Ids deatli left considerable mining proper ty. among which is the areal Valley, which is said to he one of the most promising pieces of property In the, Hamilton district and which has been under operation by Mr. Wilson and his associates under lease from the owner* for the last three nnd a half years. force of men lias been constantly at work daring that time anil Mr. Qara ghan expressed himself as being well , satisfied with the development work accomplish) d as w i ll as tii* promising outlook. The principal values carried in Hu l property are lead and silver and while Mr. Wilson and ills associates havi been working In fur some time past It is their bellci that with more de velopment work gri at« r and richer bodies of ere will be encountered. Tne; have been working in ore for a dis tance of seventy fort In a tunnel and nre now raising on the ore. at the fame time driving a drift to the west. Three carloads have recently been shipped and about two more ears are ready to go to the smelter, l’art of this has al reads’ been hauled to tiie railroad at Kimberly and It Is hop* d that the r« - maindor may be gotten, through be fore the fall of snow cuts off ore haul ing from tiie Hamilton mines. It Is Impossible to liau! ore from the mihes to the railroad by truck during tiie winter months on account of snow, but It I* the intention of tne leasers to vig orously prosecute the development work on the property during the win ter and it Is their belief that a con siderable quantity of good ore will be ready at the mine as soon as the roads open up to permit tiie hauling In the early summer. Upon the return trip from Hamilton the party encountered considerable dif ficulty. leaving the former county seat during a heavy snowstorm. On the west side of Jake's summit, at a fork In the road, the party got slightly off the regularly traveled road and on ac count of striking n high center the ear became so badly stalled that It was necessary to haul timbers from the mountainside in order to Jack tip the machine and build a runway to get bark on tiie right road. Tills, together with a brok» n clutch on the car on the Journey out. made the trip anything but a loyrlde. but the promising condi tions at tiie mine seemed to repay tin party for the harshtpa endured.

Uninvited Guests Visit Local Dentist Tuesday night last tmlnvlt-d guests visited the offices of Pr. S. T.

Chief of Police W. O. Moorman was Immediatciy notlfled and remembered having seen two men leave the building early in the morning This did not of Itself arouse suspicion, due to the fact that n room ing house Is conducted in the rear of the offices of Dr. Spann. The chief lost no time In locating tiie men. who told him that one had suffered an in jury nnd they went there In search of Pr. Adams, not knowing that the latter had removed his offices to the North ern hotel. They broke In to render first aid on their own account and this was evidenced by towels stained with blood which remained on the floor. The of fice was In a general condition of dis turbance. but Investigation showed that nothing had been stolen and upon pay. ment by the men of the slight damage done In order to gain entrance. Pr. Spann requested that tiie men be re leased without prosecution, and this was done.

I TWO Dinous HUES MONDAT MORNING UST Two fires which broke out almost simultaneously, one In Central Ely and the other one In Lane City. Kept the volunteer tire department busy last Monday morning- The first alarm was turned In at about 12:30 a. m., when the home of Thomas H. Lowe In Central Ely was discovered to be on fire. Flames were first seen mining through the roof and lust how fhe house took fire will perhaps always be a mystery. Fire Chief Muthias sold fhat he could give no explanation and that the Are was probably of incendiary origin, in fact, there was no one in the house. Since the lamentable death of Mrs. f-owe last February the Lowe children have been cared for at the homo of Mrs. llurke. Mr. Lowe says that upon leaving the house there was no fire of any kind left therein. He had eaten his supper uptown Saturday night and on Sunday morning before starting on a deer hunt In company with Charles Burke and Claude Henderson. Mr. Lowe took breakfast at the Burke home, so lie had no occasion to build a tire In his own home for several hours before tils de parture on the deer hunt. The parly went to Stiver Cri ek ami were un successful in locating any of Ihe much sought after animals. They were on their return home, and on their way to Hot so Camp had stopped at the Mul vihill station, In Connors pass, for :i new supply of gas and other things necessary to continue the hunt. While at Ihe station Mr. Burke telephoned to Ills family In Centra! Ely and was then informed rf the fire width Imd totally destroyed the Low e home. Mr. Lowe carried insurance on the house and furniture in the sum of J2.R00. He says that he eouid not re place the same bv an outlay of less than 23,500 and In this estimate he In cludes only the house Lnd furniture at the market value, to say nothing of the loss of many articles which to him were priceless, hut which perhaps would not have a great Intrinsic value. In this he refers to such articles as a shaving set left him at the death or his father and because of this attach ment was prized by Mr. Lowe beyond a money consideration or value. Anoth er was a quilt made by Mrs. I.owo at the age of 9 years and which had been In the family since. The house was particularly well con structed. all the work having been done under the personal direction of Mr Lowe, himself a competent me chanic, and the work not actually ex ecuted by him was performed by the most competent mechanics available and under the watchful eye of the owner The fire .if i«ane FI I y is supposed to have originated In a biacksinith shop wlitcli together with some other build ings was destroyed before the fireman could reach the scene. About twenty cords of mahogany wood were likewise destroyed. While Mike Zunlno will lose considerably l>y the fire the house in whl;h he resided was not touched by the flames. A.
