WBD.M RAI A Y NOVEHBKB 19, IH79
The coast is at present suffering from the
rrette-ice of too many mining experts. There
are to day several hundred men in Virginia
City And San Francisco, who are alluded to in
tho papers under the general head of raining
Xpert a. As a rule they know nothing about
mi Mis or geology. On visiting day these men
flock to the Comstnck and walk up and down
0 atreet n't wed by admiring crowds. Tke
fate of the coast is supposed to hang upen
heir report. Tbey don miners suits and are
let down iauo the lower levels. They pick
rook from different portions of the mine and
raMa it into canvass sacks. It is amusing to
wateh some of them as they look at the face of
a drift. One would iaingine that tfcey were
able o so as plain as day a formation fifty
feet ahead in the solid quartz. They paw over
the rock and look wise; some are very careful
about expressing an unqualified epinien, and
eowe are running over with opinions. They
get out of the oitoe and drive into the town at
a tremendous speed; all along 0 street sounds
the cry " Here com the experts." Requa,
Dudesheimer, Hoefltch, Ryan, Pixley, Bor
Usd, Sheridai, Kelly, Israel, Levi, Canavan,
Thompson, Smith, DouglasB, Shultz, Finlan,
Jones and one hundred in the steerage. Some
rash pell-mell to the telegraph office, pull out
their cryptograph and evolve cypher dispatch
es. Some take their samples to be assayed, and
oaae retire into the inner recesses of Mallon'e
aa if they wished to he avoided. Straightway
a crowd of " buzzers " surround thein like the
Bwarma of summer flies congregating about
the seductive molasses. For a few minutes the
expert feeds his crowd on knowing looks coup
led with significant winks and nods. Then he
dreps a remark or two qualified and in a
few minutes he is delivering an oration on the
object of the west cross cut. He describes
it aa the biggestthingever struck in the ledge.
Meanwhile another expert in tke aext saleeu
ie telling a ftw friends confidentially that
the whole prospect is the biggest fraud
in which the public has ever been induced to
take stock. There are a few experts who have
the sense to form some idea of what they see
and act accordingly. They keep their opin
ions to themselves and buy and sell on their
judgment. If they lose they never " squeal "
and if tbey make they never brag. The bal
aaee of those whose names are constantly be
fore the public as experts are a set of lying
scheming men, who are as ignorant as they
are mercenary. They do aot hesitate to be
little a good development in order togetth
stoek at lower figures, or bulla worthlosspros
peet for the sake of unloading. The public
is at their mercy. Hnlfof tke so-called ex
perts, and probably two thirds of tlietu, are
uoeiulified'y frauds of the first water, who
speculate iu tke credulity of the general pub
lie. We have mentioned quite a list ot
them, and there is hardly a mining man on
the coast who cannot, on looking at the liat,
seperate the sheep from the goats. The press
in a measuro is responsible for the existence
of these humbugs. Their opinions are quoted
eoupled with editorial comments, and an un
due importance is attached to their slightest
utterances. By tho time a mining man has
had two interviews with a press reporter, he
receives the title of export by common con
sent. Two m:iny experts on tho Comstock
have spoiled the mining broth for some time
Mnch inte rst has been aroused in the so
cial circles of New York city by a rumor that
Miss Laura Sickles, daughter of General Dan
iel E. Sickles, hud eloped from Paris on the
evo of her pro'Ktscd departure for this country
with her father. The Tribune has the follow
ing details of the reported elopement. , gen
tleman well acquainted with the Sickles fam
ily says passage wrw engaged by steamer some
weeks ago. Before the time arrived the man
with whom Miss Su.kles is reported to have
finally eloped, was arrested. The charge is
aid to have been that of theft, he having some
jewels belonging to the Sickles family in his
KMsession. Ills name is McCarthy. He is
a Southerner, and is said to be well known in
this city. Through the efforts of United
fcUtes Minister Noyes, in Faris, McCarthy
was released on condition that he would leave
the country. This he agreed to do, and upon
Friday night, preceding the day the Sickles
were to depart for this country, McCarthy left
Paris for London, but is reported to have
taken with him the General's daughter.
THE POET'S CORRAL.
The JlPfkal frequently receives original
poetry fren different parts of the coantry
acccompaaied by letter requesting publica
tion. It is no easy anatter to judge whet real
poetry is. Poets of acknowledged reputation
frequently write what some people denominate
as trash, and obscure versifiers often pro
duced poetry worthy of the name Some
times poetry which at first blush seems bad,
dreadfully bad, contains a line or two worth
presepwinf in the memory of observing crit
ics. Thus, store-keepers often throw away
boxes of rotten apples, when along comes a
Washoe squaw, pokes over the pile and finds
some well preserved fruit. People who send
poetry to the Appeal mw bit sur of having
their verses printed, provided the poem does
not ocoupy more than a quarter of a column.
Poems of greater length will be cut down by
the editor, who will, of counts, fcakm caro to
eliminate the bant wmb. Persons who
write can be oure of seeing theiv narrow in
print, tke first time ; only regular subscribes
(8 ayar in advance) oan become regnlar con
tributors. Writer who poetry i pub
lished are expected as a matter of oenrteoy to
send a subscription.
To a tiny rina scares biggta

With the dear feat car red upon it
Of Lis little tweetheart, Bell.
They had parted era the osnuine
Field ( Oettysban; was won,
And n vain his ceauodee sought hiai
Wbeo the bloody work v Sons.
And tss morning son rhone brightly,
Bat the soldier drooped ais biad,
And ere twice three moans were nnrsssrod
Me was sleeping with tho dead.
In his thin, sold hand shut tightly
Some ene found this sea side shell,
With the dear face carved upon it
Of his sweetheart, little Bell
And poor Bell made bitter naoaning.
Far away in Uarblehead,
When they brought tho little token
From her loier wlio was dead.
And ere Jane's sweet roses blossomed,
Or th robin built hi nest,
Pretty Bell's tweet hands weaa folded
la an everlasting rest.

Thb question is being discussed aa to
whether or not the State authorities should
allow the Piutes to execute John, the Washoe
Indian, who killed Charley, the Piute. If the
Piutes take charge of the accused they will
probably execute him witkia a half hour after
ke is delivered up. His own tribe seem to have
no doubt of his guilt, as they propose to
capture him and turn him over to the friends
of the dead man. If he is tried by the
proper authorities it will cost the county
thousands of dollars. The jury will disagree,
be will get a new trial on technicalities
and perhaps in the end get off free. Turn
him over to the Piutes, by all means but
then, of course, first catch your Indian.
The Sierra Mojada Mikes. It now turns
out that the Sierra Mojada mines are really
worthless. For months past the papers of the
coast have been devoting columns to the praise
of their fabulous richness. The papers of San
Francisco led the van. Hundred rushed to
the scene of the new discovery, only to find
the whole thing a humbug. The question
now arises, wiu ioisted tho swindle on tue
public. It is about time that somebody was
held responsible for such things. The job was
evidently nut up by parties who wanted to
dispose of some worthless claims, and they
hired somebody to puff the fraud. What pi
pers were first used as accessories to the job
Union's First Car load of Ore. The
first car-load of ore was hoisted from the
Union shaft this afternoon at 1 o'clock. It was
run out and deposited in the ore dump, which
is entirely completed. Only one car-load was
hoisted. The track running to the ore dump
is housed over with a two story builriing, and
everything on the surface is in readiness for
receiving all the ore that can he hoisted. The
ore came from the Union ground, and it is
uuderstoou that hois ing will be continued
from this time forward. Evening Chronicle.
