What Becomes of the ol.l Bums. A Bottle of Trib should be in every household. The Legislature meets on Monday next t Carson. The miners at the Half Moon are said to bo in a fidget about the Indians. Th furnace at the smelter has been given a thorough overhauling and every, thing points to a long run. Peter Edwards came in from Lake Vallev last Tuesday and left again Wednesday. Bv the upsetting of a pot of molten slag one of the smelter hands ,. ..nnoiiWiblv burnt about the feet just before the fast blow out. The charcoal yard at the smelter is tilled to its utmost capacity, and the teams are now storing the coal sacked at the upper end of Meadow Valley Street, The cold weather we are now having has caused those without wood to be on the hustle. It is uo joke to turn into bed without a stick of wood in the stove. The night shift at the Yuba mine has been dispensed with and the full force are employed in the day time only, causing a considerable saving to the company. The guidewife blesses the cold weather for it has a tendency to make the hus band hue: the stove, if not herself, and causes him to have less business down town at night. Though the thermometer has not regis tered lower than 12 degress, the frost seems to have penetrated the ground readilv and water pipes are frozen in all parts of town. Under the new districting and distri bution of District Judges, Elko, White Pine and Lincoln Counties are given to Judge Talbot and he will maintain his residence at Elko. Mrs. Deck has furnished her new lodging house throughout with new fur niture and bedding. Her patrons may rest assured that their slumbers will not be disturbed by the little jokers. Several of our floating population have left camp for Tintic. They will find the truth of the old saying, "that nil is not gold that glitters," and that pur camp is just as good as any of the rest. Few Indiana about town and nothing unusual in their actions. They continue to work a little, gamble a good deal and get drunk au often as possible. No prophet or war is troubling them. A teamster named Ooff, engaged ,in hauling ore from the Day Mine, nearly had his right foot cut off last Tuesday. A loaded wagon passed over it and the suf ferer is now at camp confined to bed. The cold snap we have had for the past few days caused a hustling aronnd for overcoats and mufflers. Those who were lucky enough to possess one were the envy of some of those who didn't. The coyotes are having a lively time scampering over the country and mak ing the nights hideous with their howl ing. Whether they are rustling for grub or only to keep warm is best known to themselves. . The smelter blew in again Tuesday afternoon, with plenty of ore and ooal on hand to make a long run. It is hoped no more impediments will be in the way, and that a good production of bullion will be the result. , The running of the Taylor and Ely stage line has reverted to 11. Sadler, the original oontraotor, and he made his first trip yesterday. Better stock and ve hicles than have been used for some time will be placed on the road and bet ter time will also be made. ' There is a whisper in town of a cake being made with a fancy white top, cov ered with cupids and other emblematic ornaments. Great Scott! Is someone go ing to take unto himself a rib If bo, we oniy hope that when that cake is cut our devil may not be forgotten, even if ' the staff is overlooked. The Pioche Hotel has a deserted ap pearance, as it is now without an occu pant. Why it is uninhabited appears singular. It is well situated and has ex cellent accommodation for boarders as Well as transient customers and if prop erly managed should prove a paying in stitution. There is a rumor around town that the Bullionville mine is likely to change hands, some San Francisco parties hav ing bonded some part of it and are figur ing for the balance. This is beyond doubt a good piece of property and a safe investment. Brother Beeoo, one of the owners, thinks there are millions in it. ' -. ' Many years practice have given C. A. Snow 4 Co., Solicitors of Patents, at Washington D. C, unsurpassed success in obtaining pateuU for all classes of in ventions. They make a apeoialty of re jected cases, and have secured allowance of many patents that had been previous. ly rejected, k heir advertisement in another column, will be of interest to in ventors, patentees, manufacturers? and all who have to do with patents. A number of the leading citizens of Punca have formed a corporation under the laws of this State for storing water and have already begun the work oi building a reservoir. The company will be known as tne Meadow Valley Water Storage and Ir- rigation Company." The land lying a short distance below Bullionville ana formerly known as "Hammond's Milk Ranch'; has been secured as A site tor a reservoir and construction work it now going on, thirteen teams being engaged in it. A bank 900 feet long, thirty feet wide at the bottom, tea feet at the top, and ten feet high is be in tbuilt at that point; it it Mtimated it will cover 50 acres of land behind it with an average depth of six feet of water. This is the work now go ing on and if the enterprise proves sue. cessful the capacity of the reservoir will be doubled. The water stored will be conduoted from the stream flowing to waste down Meadow Valley Wash, and if the undertaking succeeds it will bring into cultivation 200 acres of land lying below. The capital stock is divided into 1,000 shaers, at the par value of $5 each, and the trustees for the first six im,r.ths are A. L. Syphus, A. O. Lee, N. J, Wads worth, W. H. Edwards and M. L. Lee. Day Ore. The Pioche Con. Mg. Co. recently shipped 150 tons of Day ore to Salt Lake City for reduction. This was done un der orders from head quarters to see what markot value the ore had, if any. The shipment was divided into three lots and sent to as many different smelt ers, Two of the smelters allowed for the lime contained, in addition to the silver Jand returned a profit. This ore was blown out and shipped without sorting, and the result indicates what we may look for when the railroad shall be onmnleted. as 400.000 tons of similar stuff are estimated to, be exposed now. The Day ore is worth in the market for fluxing, double the alue of the silver contained in it, and it is this feature which makes the property so valuable, no mine similar to it being known of within 500 miles of us. Justice's Court. Last Saturday the case of the State against J. M. Green, charged with an assault in drawing a pistol on B. N. Coleman, at Royal City on the first inst., came off. Defendant was found guilty and fined $15 and cost. On Saturday also, A. T. Page sued Mrs. Dave Meyers and Dave Meyers, for $61.77 for beef furnished at High land. The case was settled on Wednea. day. Last Tuesday the case of the State vs. Jos. Dehnue, on a charge of assault and battery against Francisco Pasini, was tried before the Court without a jnry, resulting in the discharge of the defendant. Accident. t At the Half Moon mine, on Saturday last, an ore hauler named Morris was ooming down the road from the mine with a four horse team loaded, when the rough lock ohain parted and the wagon ran into the team. The result was .1 general smashing np. The leaders broke loose and ran away, while one of the wheel horses was thrown down and both front and hind wheels of the wagon passed over him breaking shoulder and cutting off one front foot. The animal was shot. The wagon was wreoked al most beyond repair. Governor Colcord Iwora la. Promptly at 12 o'clock, on Monday the 5th inst., at the Exeoutive Depart ment of the Capitol building at Carson, R. K. Colcord, Governor-elect, and Jo eph Poujade, Lieutenant Governor-elect, took the oath of office in the presence of the retired and elected State officers, Judges-elect, Mrs. Colcord and daughter and Drominent citizens. In the absence of Chief Justice Belknap, Judge M. A, Murphy administered the oaths. Mu tual congratulations followed. ' ' Laid Off. .' ', , Teams engaged in hauling wood, ore and coal for the smelter, are being laid off. This indicates that the present run will end with the consumption of mate. rial on hand, and will be the last for a time, but for how long is not mentioned, The forces employed at the different mines are not altered, and development work in the several properties goes John Roeder's practice lately hat been to sleep in his store with the front iron doors closed. Thursday night he left these doors open and about half past five next morning was awakened by a noise at the middle door. Someone was try ing to unlock it. ' Roeder moved for ward to tee if possible who it was, when one of his cats made A noise by jumping to the floor and soared the intruder off. This is something new for us and may put some of ua on our guard. Thursday afternoon three youngsters the aoldest bout nine years, were found drunk, on liquor said to be procured in Chinatown. This matter ought to be investigated and the parties who sold or gave the liquor punished. At the middleweight championship fight between Dempiey and Fitzimmont, at New Orleans Wednesday, Dempsey was knocked out in the thirteenth tound. Sunt. 8. T. Godbe returned from Salt Lake Thursday. It is a well known fact that the citi zens of Pioche have always been gifted with inquiring minds, and whenever an obtuse ouestion has arisen, the matter has been debated pro and con until a final solution was obtained. A short time ago a question was brought up that agitated our thinkers in no slight degree "What became of the old Bums." Our local talent was strained to its utmost calibre, Every citizen has his chip in and as we are not a conserva tive people by any means, it was finally deoided to hold a publie meeting and have the question thoroughly venti lated, and the result of the meeting be given broadcast to the press for circula tion over the vast area oi our gionum republic, as well as the boundless wilds of equatorial Africa. Several of our largest halls and build ings were named that would accommo date the speakers and the audience, but eaoh one was set aside as too small, and it was finally decided to hold the meet ing on the Flat in the open air as it would give the speakers plenty of breath ing soells and room to cut loose on the 1 subject. The meeting took place at the ap pointed time, and the vast crowd in at tendance occupied ground enough to cover an acre of daisies. The meeting being called to order, great difficulty was experienced in the selootiou of a Chairman, all the speakers being anxious to obtain the chair as it was the only available seat on the ground. A gentle man recently from the grade at Clover, suggested that if the meeting wished to have a good road bed (he meant plat form) it ought to be well balasted, and proposed the name of a gentleman on Main Street who could carry.both weight and dignity to the chair, carried unani mously, with cheers that made the Indi ans in Pahranagat think the Messiah had arrived in Pioche. The gentleman of weight and dignity was escorted to the chair, but hesitated before seating himself, and appeared to have some misgiving as to the stability of the structure. Thankiog the meeting for the honor conferred upon him, ho re quested the shakers to start in and toot their horns. . A general utility man around saloons was the first speaker. 'He said he was not accustomed to public speaking, but put him dealing stud and." he did not propose to get left as long as there were any pairs in the deck or a chance for any chips on the side. Ho said he was an orphan and a long way from his friends, and would throw himself on the clemen cy of the audience, tho question of Bums was too much for his cistern and on that subject knew no more than a last year's bird's nest and it gave him great pleas ure to make way for somebody else to chip. The next in rotation was an old Piocher, who advanced witli the dignity of a Rothschilds. He said he fully con curred in all of the previous speakers re marks, but though heart and hand with the meeting, he thought it a question of such vital importance that it waajbeyond human ken and ought to be left to the spiritualists for a solution. Since his sojourn here he had come in contact with a large number of Bums and had in variably given them the cold shoulder, for he always considered charity begun at home: as to their anatomical struct ure he had neverjdissected an old Bum, but from his experience with them, he was confident they were such a tough lot that steel had never yet been tem pered that could make an incision into their sides. He was better posted on the filling and extraction of teeth and he was now at work on a voluminous treatise entitled "Old stiffs and what I know about Dentistry, with copious notes on Molars in general." It was to be issued at the small sum of twenty five cents, and orders for copies could be left with the Chairman. The next In order was a medical man, who gave some very interesting details of his hospital experience. He said he had helped to dissect some hard shells that saw and knife blunted on the eorpae, but to his sorrow he had never come across a regular and professional Bum; they never drifted, into the hospi tal, and what ultimately became of them was always a mystery to him. He had heard it asserted that they ,were surrep titiously made away with and converted into mincemeat, and put up in jars or pails for family use at Christmas, but for his part he was slightly under the impression that in their old age they be came mormons and at their deaths were turned over to tho tithing office and ren dered down for soap fat. I A mixer of ragged edged revivers took the floor; had met many of the class in his chequered career, had yet to find the first one who ever refused an eye opener, or yet paid for one. Had been brought up by poor, but pious parents and his opinion was, if any tearch was to be made the best plan would bo to search the scriptures. , An artist in wooden suits was the next speaker. It had always been a connundrum to him where the Bums final resting place was situated. He had planted a number of old stiffs, but never put an old Bum to sprout. He thought when the summons came they sought the far off sage brush and became a substi tute for strychnine in poisoning wolves. Here a voice frjm the audience ema nating from a sepulchral pair of lungs said that 70 years had embrowued his brow, he had for the greater part oi his life bummed it, but the eloquent re marks of the speakers had to changed hit nature that he had fallen from the ranks of Bums, and if any one in the crowd would treat he would move away to other fields and pastures new and would become a nunnery. He was in terrupted by several of the speakers jumping to their feet and olamoringto be heard, when a crash sounded likt a wood pile giving way. It came from the chair and the distinguished Chairman was seen picking himself np from the debris. An angelic look overshadowed his countenance as he said that at tht next meoting he presided over he did not propose to get left, and would have atlag pot from the smelter to sit upon as he had too much respect for his cor poration to become a test) medium for second 'hand furniture. A motion was made to adjourn sine die, to enable the speakers to transact some important business with a man on the corner of the street. Carried unanimously. B. HE6BITT BE03. ADVEETIiE.ENT. J.

Country produce Bought and Sold. W .SHINOTO.1l LBTfER. Washinutoh, Jan. 2, 1891, Senator Hoar is still confident that the Federal Election bill will pass the Sen ate and become a law. He thinks that Senators Stewart. Woloott, Teller and possibly one or two others, not over two, represents the entire republican opposi, tion to the bill, although there are sev, eral others who mav not vote for the bill, but who will nob-vote against it, But other republican Senators are not so confident of the final outcome. The die. affection in the republican ranks arises not bo much from oDDOsition to the bill as from the delay in disposing of These centlemen think the bill has already occupied too much of the Senate1 time, while other leislation, particularly that affecting financial matters, has had to wait. Just what the result will be it would be impossible to predict with even a reasonable degree of certainty, but every Senator with whom I have talked, and they are numerous and represent the friends of all tho measures waiting to be taken up as well as of the election bill, agree in the belief that decisive action of some sort will be taken by the Senate during the coming week when about all of the holiday absentees will have re turned. One strange feature of the situ ation is, that domocrats generally believe that the election bill will be passed. Democratic Seuators are doing all they possibly can to enoourage those republi can Senators who are known to be favor able to free silver coinage to attempt to force the consideration of one of the bills already introduced providing for free coinage before the Election bill or the cloture rule is disposed of; they are not doing this because they favor free coin age, which nas some oi us uuierest up ponents among the democratic Senators, but because they winh to create dissen tion in the republican ranks in the hope that they may profit thereby in the end. It will be discovered, I think, by these republicans, it one of these bills ever reaches a vote, that the democrats, with a very few exceptions, will not vote for it. The Republicans iu the Senate are strikingly in need of a leader, that is to say a man with the daring and dash whioh characterized certain periods of Mr. Blaine's and tho late Roscoe Conk lings Senatorial careers. There are many able and learned republicans in the Sen ate but there seems to be no real leader among them no man whom all the rest will willingly follow. If Speaker Reed had been in the Senate I don't believe the present condition of affairs, which is entirely unsatisfactory to all classes of republicans, would exist. Battles are not won without fighting, and no army can fight well with divided leadership. Republicans all hope for the best, but they are not inspired with that aggress. ive confidence which has been character istic of the party in other great Con, gressional contests. The President has signed the commit sion of Henry B. Brown, as Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court, his nomination having been con firmed bv the Senate. The new Justice will take his seat next week, and he will have his hands full of work immedi ately, as there are a number of important cases that have been waiting for a full court to act upon them. Justice Brown is a fortunate man; not a ajngle word has been said against his nomination, The President is utilizing all the ma. cbinery of the Post-office department in making an investigation of the recent murder of J. P. Mathews, postmaster at Carrollton, Mississippi.' Mr. Harrison is determined to tret to, the bottom of this case. Mr. Mathews' was the third post master appointed at that place ainceJune 1. 1SS9. First R. C. Hansbrough was appointed, but his commission was with' held and his son appointed. Soon after. ward his bondsmen withdrew and not being able to obtain others he was com pelled to give up ttie office. Mathews was appointed in August last, and took charge of the office in October. It has been stated here that citizens of the town had openly made threats that no repub lican should be their postmaster. If the President becomes convinoed of the truthfulness of that statement they may find themselves without either post-offi ce or postmaster. Tb, President's New Year reception was one of tho most brilliant ever held in the White House, and it was followed by one equally as brilliant held by tho Vice President and Mrs. Morton at their elegant and capaci ous residence. Prominent among the at tendants at both was Hon. Robert T. Lincoln, our Minister to Great Britain, who is here to receive his final instruc tions before veturning to his post, and Gen. W. T. Sherman, who is "'Mting his brother, the Senator. There is good reason for believing that the democrats are scheming to bring about the necessity for an extra session of Congress this Spring. They'll get very sick of it if it is held. KemeoiDer Regular Correspondent. the: pioche:. MEAT MARKET! Main Street, Pioche, Revaia. . .

In medical ethics it is said there is no poison without its an tidote, and in like manner there is no pain, mental or .physical, without its re lief. The melancholy days are those wherein the coming 'of pain is feared, or pain really experienced. The . balmy and delightful air to the heathful, ceems filled with chill and moisture to the ail ing, the sure provocatives of rheumatic aches and neuralgic throbs; indeed all aches and pains are thus influenced. But the occasion should be full of hope, and the concern of sufferer only as to the surest and best releif. There is no ques tion about this. The dispute is settled by a large majority. St. Jacobs Oil is not relief only; it is a sure cure, prompt and permanent. It is not a promise; it is true performance always. that. A Bottle of Trib should be in every household. Farmer Stein came in from Pahrana gat Valley yesterday. An entertainment fur the benefit of the Kindergarten tchcol came off last even ins at Browns Hall in which the children took a Drominent part. It occurred too late to enable us to make more than pass' ing mention of it this week. A Dream Interpreted. A Scotch, paper cootaint the following: A laborer at the Dundee harbor lately told his wife, on awakening, a curioHS dream which he had during the night. He dreamed that he saw ooming toward him, in order, foar rats. The first one was very fat, and was followed by two lean rats, the rear rat being blind. The dreamer was greatly perplexed as to what evil might follow, At it has been understood that to dream of rata denotes coming ealamity. He appealed to his wife concerning this, but she poor wo man, could not help him. His ton, a sharp lad, who heard his father tell the story, volunteered to be the interpreter. "The fat rat," he said, "is the man who keeps the publio house, that ye gang till saa often, and the twa lean anea are me and my mither, and the blind ane is yer- self, father." Many white women are the wives of New York Mongolians, tayt the Sun. Most of them art married at the Five Point Mission, where more queer matches sre made than anywhere elsa in the town.
