THE MORNING APPEAL.
WEDNESDAY MARCH 24 CARL SMITH AT TAHOE. He Learns of the Insides of the New Steamer- The following is an extract from one of Carl Smith's interesting letter to the Chicago Record, telling of his visit to Glenbrouk and what he thought of the new steamer : The big steamer, trefctled u, in the air like a V s?el on stilts, was really an attractive-lookintr craft, and we learned with interest from every human heing at the lake that she had teen hauled piece by piece across the uouutaint and put together there on the lake shore. It was all very interesting, but, told once, we were satisfied, and twice was too frequent a recital, and by the time the sixteenth person hd detailed the circumstances the whole story began to be tedious and annoying. Wh felt, though, that to the engineer we owed a duty, and so the next morning went up to his hill-side machine-ahop and asked with stimulated eagerness to see his blue prints. Langdou, I think, had an idea that a blue print was a kind of cloth much affected by dressy women, but he rallied a great atten tion when the engineer produced from a drawer in his table two or three dozen great maps of the engineering work on the big boat. He looked earnestly at the first drawing and murmured: "Yes, that's he engine room, and the boiler-room, and the cabin," and so on, for" these apart ments were marked on the print, and it required no guess to place them. Tden the engineer began to recite the virtues of especial improvements and methods of structure, and technical terms rolled from his tongue like manna dropping from the heavens. He grew interested in his explanation, and, showing plan after plan, all of which were to our unaccustomed eyes as iutelligible as the hieroglyphics of Yucatan, ho bade us note the great advantages the oscillating eccentric bad over the counterbalance shafting gear, or something like that. He was mathematical, and to prove his reckoning pulled up a pad of paper and figured out cube roots cf steam expansion of parallel flues, aided by lateral motion spark arresters. The value of the kinetogram device for the storage of power in tubular abestos cells wrapped with gutta percha trapezoids was demon- trated by him, and as we sat in a sort of hypnotic state, forgetful of all the world, be sides the horrible night-mare of his outrageous blue prints, we heard a whistle from far out on the lake, and, looking around, we saw that the little steamer was half a mile away, and that we had lost the trip, not only for that day, but for all time, for we must leave the next morning. We made no dole. The engineer had been so earnest in bis effort to entertain us that we had not ths heart to mention the disappointment, and indeed, the courageous Langdon asked him if he hadn't some more plans he could show us. But fortun ately he had none. The man who expects support from his local paper and is too stingy to invest even the amount of a year's subscription even though he takes a thousand outside dailies, has an im mense screw loose to hi box of busi ness judgment.

Although a woman of the town the Chronicle says she poss essed many sterling qualities. She was kind and charitable and her word was as good as gold in all of her dealings.

The Justice Finds the Killing was in Self-defense. There was a large crowd at the Jus tice Court rooms yesterday to hear the argument in the case of W. A. Smith charged with the killing of Dick Bradford on the night of the 17th. Woodburn and Torreyson represent ed Smith and District Attorney Mc Gowau for the State. It has been shown by the evidence that the defend ant had been attacked by the deceased and very badly beaten. That while he was undergoing very severe punish ment from the deceased he endeavor ed to get out the door he was followed up by Bradford who grasped his collar and continued to tain blows upon his face. It was after his eye w is blacked his jaw cut, his lip split a.d portions of flesh forced into his te.h and some teeth knocked out, that li" pulled a weapon and fired remarking : "I hated to do this but I had to." Woodburn, in his speech said that Fitzsimrnons had not received one third as much pun:sbm9nt in fourteen rounds last Wednesday and a general laugh was raided. He also dwelt upon the facts as shown in the evi dence that Bradford was much tbo larger man no occupation known as a desperate v'ndictitave and a gun fighter and a man who had a few weeks puiled a pistol oo a man in Randsl urg and attempted 10 kill him The District Attorney contented him self with reading the various authori ties and the Court discharged the prisoner on the ground that a very violent assault had been committed and that the prisoner had started to go away before he was followed and the assault continued. The defendant thanked the Court and a great many people came up to shake hands with him in congratula tion. The decision of the Court seem ed to be approved by every one in the city who had any opinion on the sub ject. A Weather Forecast The Appeal never went much on the weather forecasts and it always seemed a waste of time to print thriu. Here J- me of Fosit and if anyor.e thinks he wants to bet on the weather after reaJing it, he can do so. Hear this : A very considerable drop in tem perature will occur during the last week in March, but 1 cannot now de- b rmine whether it will develop its greatest fall after this or the preced ing Btorm wave. Therefore its is best to be prepared for both periods . A very warm period will occur be tween the 20th and 27th and this may extend to the 31st, but probably will not Then following this warm peiiod, probably not far from the 29th, pos sibly not until April 4th, a cool wave will 8prnd over the country, causing frosts in Northern States that may do some damage. Thus the prophet predicts a drop in temperature iu one paragraph and a warm period in anorher If the editor who prints such trash would stop five minutes to read it, the stuff would go into the waste basket where it belongs. Carson Again Xoruial. Carson has returned to its normal condition. The big telepraph office has been reduced to a small upstairs room and the force or twenty-five op erators has eimmered down to one young lady lightning manipulator. Snaw's Springs and Cook's ranch are simply the ordinary places they for merly were and the stores close at 7 o'clock. The roulette, faro, keno and other tables are piled up for future reference, and the lone bartender in many of the resorts looks wistfully at the old stiffs as they drop in now and then and dreams of the days that are past and gone and wonders if it will pay to take out the next license. Married. In San Francisco, at the residence of the bride's parents, January 24, 1897, by the Rev, J. P. Cross, Eugenia Cowne and George I Lamy, the groom being of this city . Mrs. Lamy will arrive in Carson in a day or two. A surprise party was given Miss JosieBrulin and her guesr, Miss Ida Adams of San Francisco, last evening by the Kings Daughters. It was said to be a genuine surprise, but the ) parties of the second part had every- tning ready. Mrs. Tobriner was a west-bound pas senger last evening. Rudolph Spreckles has just beaten his father out of a mi'lion dollars in a law suit. Blanther, the murderer, died yesterday is a Texas jail froir. an overdose of moiph ine. He was fully identified. VETO DAY. The Governor Knocks Out Four Bills YesLerday- Assembly BUI 1J9, appropriating money fur the printing and binding of the compiled laws was vetoed be cause of its indeflniteness and-vngue and unceitatu lai guape and the fail ure to provide who rtie money appro priated whs to be paid to- Assembly Bill 93, an act for the compiling of the laws was vetoed be cause of the fact that it named Assem blyman Norcrss as one of the parties named in the bill to do the work and he being a member of the Assembly at the time, the naming of Mr. Nor crofs in the bill was unlawful. Senate Bill 92, extending the time for the payment of ir-turest on S'ate bonis was vetoed because it names offices not in the Constitution and would civu'e confusion in land matters, bur mainly for the fact that it conflicts with Article 1, Section 15 :f the Constitution, insomuch as it im- pares the obligations of a contract. Assembly Bill 108, amending the divorce laws was vetoed on the ground that the present marriage and divorce laws were sufficiently liberal, and if A B 108 became a law, temporary in sanity on the part of husband and wife, however short, would relieve the other of the care and maintai nance of the unfortunate one. Similarity In Names Causes Creek News : Already the dis advantages of having two post-offices in the same State with names so near alike as "Gold Creek" are becoming manifest. Elko is the distributing office for both of these points, and yet mistakes me bound to occur. A paper lies ou the News desk plainly ad dressed to "Coid Cteek, .White Pine, county' lhe News is also in receipt j of complaints of letters missing and delayed, and it is feared they have been missent to the -Cold Creek" office. There is a very simple remedy at hand. Gold Creek was the only name suitable for this place. But But Cold Creek is only country office supplying a few ranches. Any other name would no as well. Why not call it "Ice Creek?" Now that Gold Creek has won its point in having the famous name retained hero it should do the handsome thing by its southerd ueishbor in considera tion of a change iu name to one not quite so frigid. Jim's Own Fault. Ed. Cook is reported by the Chronicle as saying: "Corbett ran himself down too fine and lost the fight by being over trained. He has himself to thann and no one else. His lack of speed and force after the eighth round showed that he was overtrained. I knew that he would not follow De- laney's counsel and that be violated j everf one of Prey's orders in re gard to training duriDg the last few days."

Corbett and Fitzsimrnons had an amicable meeting this afternoon and partook of refreshments together. Corbett begged hard for another chance. Fitz reiterated his resolution to fight no more, but finally made a concession, promising that if he did fight again Corbett should have the first chance. A ew Drug Store. J. M.
