OUR WASHINGTON LETTER.
A Fine Building to be Erected Where
The Cliff House Stood.
The Surveyor General's report submitted
to the Legislature contains a good showing
f,ir Lincoln county. The land entries in
this county during the past two years far
eveeeiled the entries made in any other
counties. Most of this land is along the
proposer! line of the Nevada Southern, south
of the Muddy Valley. The only Assessor's
report embraced in the pamphlet is that of
II. K. Freudenthal, Assessor of Lincoln
county. Five others were submitted, all
being so incomplete that they were not ac
cepted. This report will do more to adver
tise the advantages of Lincoln, than any
other method which could be adopted.
ADVERTISED LETTER LIST.
The following letters remain uncalled for
at the Pioche postollice February 7, 1895:
Bulkley Albert W. Smith Mrs.
Parties calling for the above letters will
please say "advertised."
M. J. CARMAN, P. M.
On Monday last the Board of County
Commissioners met, members M. Schaefer,
J. Conaway and L. Syphus being present.
Ou payment of $4.96 by M. I). Noteware,
the County transferred 80 acres of land
application No. 10,488 and 10,489 to the
above named person.
A petition from the citizens of St. Joe
was laid over until the next meeting.
The District Attorney and Clerk was
ordered to answer the communication of
Freeman & Bates of San Francisco, in regard
to county bonds,
As no bids was received on the advertised
amount in the Redemption Fund, it was
ordered that the amount as advertised be
transferred to the General Fund according
The list of bills against the county as
appears in another column was allowed.
The sum of $125 was ordered transferred
from the General Fund to the Salary Fund.
The tax levy for the year 1895 was made as
follows: County $3.55 and Town $3.75.
No further business appearing the Board
Washington, January 31, 1895.
If the money changers who have forced
the third issued of bonds, which will prob
ably be officially announced after Congress
has been given time to digest the exe:utive
message, by withdrawing the gold which
they paid for the last issue of bonds from
the Treasury, thought thereby to frighten
Congress into fiuaneial legislation they have
apparently made a big mistake. Congress
doseu't show the least bit of fright, and
there is no more probability of financial leg
islation now than there was before the gold
raid bgan. In fact, the new isue of bonds
will no more frighten Congress as a whole
than does the talk about the Treasuy being
forced upon a silver basis does the silver
men. Congress doseu't legislate on financial
matters for precisely the same reason that
some married couples do not live together
they cannot agree upon anything. And the
impression is growing that if an extra session
of the next Congress is called, the same
reason will prevent financial legislation.
The administration men stole a march
upon the anti's in the Senate, by getting
Senator Vest's amendment to the pending
Hawaiian resolution adopted by a vote ot -'4
to2- This amendment expresses sympaiuy
th all efforts to establish Republican in
stitutions; reaffirms the policy of absolute
non-interference with the affairs of other
nations, and declares the Cleveland admin
istration entitled to commendation and sup
port for having maintained that policy to
wards Hawaii. Twenty-three Democrats
and one Republican vuted for the amend
ment, and eighteen Republicans and four
Populists against it. There was some very
spirted debate iu connection with the
amendment, Senator Teller declaring that if
allowed to Btaud it would put an "absolute
falsehood" in the records of the Senate.
The matter is not ended. It will come up
again this week and is likely to be accom
panied with more lively talk.
The bills for the admission of Arizoua and
New Mexico have very little show to get
passed by the Senate at this session. Al
though there has been little public opposi
tion to either, it is an open secret there is
a large number of Senators who do not wish
to see those bills become laws, and it is also
known that, although he has promised to
sign them if they were sent to him, Presi
dent Cleveland would much prefer that
they be left unacted upon. The Oklahoma
bill is in the same boat.
Now that tho House has made a beginn
ing in that direction by adding two finan
cial amendments one to give the Secretary
of the Treasury discretion as to what de
nomination of notes shall be issued in place
of those redeemed and cancelled, aud one
making gold certificates non-receivable for
custom dues after July 1, 1895, and forbid
iug their use by national banks in their re
serves, aud stopping their future issue to
a regular appropriation bill, it is expected
that a number of such amendments will bo
proposed in the Senate, including several
for the issue of bonds and for the free coin
age of silver.
The amendment to the Nicaragua Canal
bill, providing that ' no more than one
dollar in stock of the company shall be
issued foi every dollar, ill truth and in fact
expended by the company," which was offer
ed by Senator Wolcott and adopted by the
Senate previous to the passage of the bill,
has deprived the lobby of much of the satis
faction of getting the bill through the
Seuate. Its chance for getting through the
House is very small, so small in fact that
few people even profess to be able to see it.
Adolph Sutro has decided that within the
next four months a handsome building will
replace the old Cliff House which was de
stroyed by tire on Christmas night. The
new Cliff House w ill be a more handsome
structure than the old, and will cost $50,
000 or more to complete it.
The new structure w ill cover an area of
92x100 feet and will be five stories in height,
the upper floors to be surrounded by broad
verandas. There w ill also be high observa
tion towers, so tiiat good views of the ocean
can be obtained. The interior decorations
will be elegant, no stone being left unturned
to make the place a pleasure resort of the
highest charactar. The uew building will
hang further out over tho cliffs than the old
did, and to do this safely the foundation
will be supported by heavy tiuibes imbedded
in the rocks. Ex.

The New York Sun can be very sarcastic
when it likes. It states that a New York
lady, an art student, has been visiting
Cleveland, O., lately, and has become en
chanted with a South Side gallery, and
writes back of it as follows:
"Wheu I go back to New York I shall
only have to close my eyes to recall with all
the fresh, keen pleasure my first impressions
of tho beautiful piece of flreuial architecture
reared in your midst by Mr. C. I". Ulney; a
most deligtful surprise in an American city.
It greets you with its yellow walls and
white columns like a Hash out of old Athens."
Upon which the merciless Sun comments
in this style:
We want tn nsk the smart Alexanders of
New York if there is one among thorn who
can boayt that he lias a 'beautiful piece of
(irecial architecture reared in his midst?"
If there is, let us havo his name and like
wise an account of the structure. At this
writing, however, we are quite sure that
Cleveland possesses the only person now
living with a beautiful piece of (irecial ar
chitecture in his midst.

The Virginia Chronicle of recent (late
says: Ualph Nichols, who has been super
intendent of the Sutro Tunnel for some time
has sent in his resignation, to take effect on
the tint of March, Mr. Nichols has been
appointed superintendent of the famous De
Lamar mines and mill at DeLamar, Lincoln
county Nevada. The DeLamar, Monkey
Wrench or Ferguson district has become
celebrated for its rich gold mines during the
past two years. It is a young gold field,
being not over two or three years old, but it
is one of the most promising regions in the
State. The town of DeLamar is located
aiiong the mines and is a flourishing camp.
It is probably a hundred miles from Pioche
and is reached after a long stage journey.
There are something like 800 men in the
district of DeLamar at present. The April
Faol and Jim Crow are two of the leading
mines in the district. One group of mines
changed hands several months ago for over
$400,000. When the new railroad from
Salt Lake City to Los Angeles is completed,
the DeLamar and other rich mining districts
in eastern Nevada, will be opened up to the
Mr. Nichols was superintendent of the
Pioche Con. Co.'s property here about two
years ago and proved to be a gentleman of
much ability and was liked exceedingly well
by everyone, A better man could not have
been chosen for the responsible position Mr.
Nichols is about to take and we wish hin
the best of luck in his position.
