Godbe were visitors from Bullionville laat Sunday. Fall house-cleaning is generally on and the weather is fin for thia purpose. Oeo. Naibitt waa here for several days this weak on impoitaat business. A Piute boy swallowed a dims yesterday and is consequently in financial difficulties. Ore is being hauled steadily from the Half If oon mine ta the reduction works on the summit.. A marriage lioense was reosatly issued to Wm. J. Stewart of Las Vegas, and Lena Carroll of Moapa. Henry Fraudentbal left here Saturday morning with a good supply of provisions for the Comet mine. C. Carden supplied our market last Friday with a load of fine fruit from his ranoh in Meadow Va'.lsy Wash. Charles Swindler has been employed to teaeb the Esgle Valley school and the term will open on Monday next. The weather here for the past few days has been very pleasant and warm during the day but somewhat oool at nights. Monday evening Mrs. Jane Hiizgms was brought up from Panaca for medical aid. She is suffering from dropsy aud has been very bad. After a stay here of several weeke Ashley Turner went to DeLtmsr by private con veyanoe thia morning. He has improved wonderfully in this short time. The only difference between the train robber and the anarchist ie that one tries to step the oar of progress and the other the progress of the car. The asseesmsot roll is being balanoed up by the County Auditor and will be ready for delivery to the County Treasurer in two weeks. Get ready to pay your taxes.

The DeLamar Company's well in Meadow Valley Wash ia now eonneeted with De Lamar town by telephone, This will prove a great convenience to the residents of the Wash. Bishop Soanlan offioiated in the Catholic Church on Sunday, holding morning and evening services and also Suuday school. On Tuesday the reverend gentleman left for Salt Lake. Don't miss the splendid opportunity of having your photo taken by a first-cl artist. Al. Smith will remain here a few days longer only. Remember satisfaction is guaranteed and prices reasonable. , ., Sunday last Dr. Campbell waa hastily summoned to Eagle Valley te attend Robert Franois who has been siok for some time and was taken from DeLamar to Ragli Valley with hopes of recovering. Mr. Francis ia now improving. Saturday afternoon last Misses Annie and Maggie Gillan, acoompanied by four smaller children of the family left for Bennett Springs. In going down ths grade south of town the brake failed to aot and the horses were forced down the road on the run. Coining te the bottom, a sidling place threw the wagon over. All the occupants were mare or lees bruised or seratcbed, but none seriously, and the wagon rendered useless fer the eooasion. The girls same to town, secured another vehiols and after seme delay started again far heme. A large fireproof safe pasesd through the fire at the Condor mill recently, with little or no injury. It was left on the ground and recently was broken open with a oold ohissl, etc. There was nothing of value left in it, however bv the owners. This ia another illustration of the nets of vandalism commit ed en unprotected property throughout thia section. No speeies of property seems sale for a moment if not under its owner's eye. The perpetrators of this class of crimes ought to receive the full punishment of the law ia every oase where caught. COMMISSIONERS PROCEEDINGS. At the meeting of the County Commiss ioners last Monday, two members, Messrs Cook and Sypbus were preeent. The Board first convened as a Board of Equalization on the assessment roll, but no complaints being laid before it, immediately adjourned and re-convened for regular business. After receiving the reports of the various county officers the usual list of claims against the county, as shown in another column in this issue, was passed. , A petition from the settlers of the Muddy Valley, for the formation of a road district was presented but on examination was found not to contain the requisite number of signatures and was ordered returned by the Clerk of the Board for rectification in that regard. The boundaries of the Pioche Road Dis trict No. 2 were fixed at six miles along each road leading from town. A written and also a verbal complaint was made to the Board that the publio highway was being inclosed by private parties and asking that the obstructions be removed. The District Attorney was ordered to forthwith bring such action as nay be necessary to cause the removal of such obstructions. The sum of $208 was ordered transferred from the General Fund to the Salary Fund. No other transfers were ordered. Several claims were laid over for action next mouth ae being prematurely presented. No road supervisor waa appointed for Pioohe district. It was deemed best to leave the matter open for the present, in asmuch as there are no funds now to be expended on any of the roads. No other business appearing the Board adjourned to the first Monday in Novem ber. Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder Most Perfect Made. SCHOOL REPORT. "A" CLASS.

Ia the first column is found the pupils average in deportment, the second punctuality and the third school- work. In grading 100 means relative per fection, 95 means extra, 90 very good, 85 good, 80 ordinary, 70 poor and 60 very poor. This method is used believing thereby the pupils will be encouraged to study and maintain as high an average as they can Parents are especially invited to visit the school at any and all times. W. D. Prewitt, Principal Pioche Publio School. The Dutch Flat school opened last Mon day in Meadew Valley Wash, with Miss Lizzie Lee of Panaca as teaoher. Mrs. McFadden is having the rooms of her lodging house thoroughly renovated In anticipation of the railroad boom. Jack Furlong, who waa kicked by horse lost week at ths Fair track, died laat Sunday evening at his home in Carson. If you want to bs in the swim have your photo taken immediately. Don't wait too long as the artist is going to leave very soon, In the case of Geo. S. Sawyer vs. Jos. and Eleanor MoGuffie, tried in the Justice's Court laat week, a decision was rendered on Saturday in favor of the defendants. F. P. Swindler is up and attending to business sgain. He will return to DeLamar shortly to complete the work of surveying he was engaged in when obliged to lay off on account of sickness last week. Everything is in readiness for a start at the summit works on the cyanide test on ths ores from west of town. About fifty tons are on hand now and more will be brought in shortly. The road to the Old Timer ia not yet completed and the ore to be first tested is from the Half Moon mine, whioh is thought to contain enough gold to make its reduction profitable by the cya nide system. This morning at about one o'clock the in fant child of Peter McDonough, died after aa illness of about ten days. Ths grand, parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Denton had ths care of the infant and exhausted every effort to save it. After the death of its mother three months ago the little one thrived nicely for a time but finally gave way.

The dance of the pleasant hour sooial club will take place to night in Vietta & Purtsch ers hall. Monday last waa pay day for the De Lamar Company and the town was more lively than usual for a day or two in con sequence. . " ' The April Fool owners are building an ore bin at their No, 2 tunnel. Other im provements are also going on andadditional shipments of ore may soon be looked for. Mr. C. A. Rath has been employed as assistant superintendent by the DeLamar Company. The gentleman has had a wide experience in mining throughout the west. It has been decided to close out the busi ness hers of Geo. S. Miller & Co., owing to the recent death of Mr. Miller. The stock will be sold at a aacrifioe and the family will psobably shortly move to California, Opinions vary as to what the effect of cold weather will be en our town. Some think that a succession of cold nights and warm day will increase the prevailing sick' nsss for a time. The weather now is mild and pleasant. . Capt. DeLamar, after a three day's stay in which be thoroughly inspected his van ous properties hsre and the improvements put on them, left by private conveyance early Sunday morning. Little direst infor mation is obtainable, but it ia understood work in every department is to be pushed vigorously as heretofore. The old road leading up the wash into town, which was recently deolarsd to be publio highway by the Board of County Commissioners is blocked at its entranoe to Main St. The ground there is claimed as town lots by Thos. Higgins and T. E. Dula and a fence and house are in course of ereo tion. This will make a case necessary to see if this is a publio road or not. In the meantime tits' private road built along the hill further down the atreet is bsing utilived We are in earnest now about a jail build ing and hre protection. Something near $440 has been subscribed for thess purposes of which amount Capt. DeLamar gave 200, At a committee meeting held last Saturday it was deoided to buy the A. S. Allen stone cabin and line it substantially with plank after fitting an iron door and shutters, this would seem to us will be less seoure than the steel jail cell which has been ordered by the Commissioners and whioh is now on the way. But both may be used Another meeting was then arranged for last evening to discuss the fire apparatus propo sition. In this matter since 'onr water supply is limited a good hook and ladder company should be formed. For a starter; some of ths Pioche equipment .could be se cured, and later a modern outfit could be put in. The town ordinanoes aa adoptsd at recent meeting of the Commissioners, have been published the requisite length of time and are now in full foroe. . General interest re quires that they be striotly enforced, part cularly those sections whioh provide for the removal of nuisances in the shape of general filth. This work is now going on and we understand some parties object to the ordi nances. If such cases be met we believe the best, shortest and quickest way settle the matter weuld be a atriot applioa tion of the ordinanoe to fit the case. One or two such casee with a resulting fine and costs, and less oppisition to the ordinances woald be heard. They resulted as a necesa tty from the situation prevailing; they rep. resent the wishes of a majority of the com' munity, aud a few who, fail, or refuse understand them should not be permitted long to jeopardize the health or comfort their neighbors. Spokane, Wash., is feeling the good effects of the revival of mining in the Trail Creek and other districts. During the past year over $250,000 haa been paid out In Spokane in dividends; one mine, the War Esgle alone paying $132,000. The Le Roi has paid $25,000, the Sloe an Star $50,000 and the Cariboo claims large amounts. Mining & Scientific Press. V LEVI STRAUSS & CO? THAOS COPPER RIVETED CLOTHING EVERY GARMENT GUARANTEED.

William Hayes. the Sutro tunnel baa suspended opera tions. The workmen are laid off and things are at a standstill. The cause of the sus pension is said to be a lack of money to pay penaes. The company has been unable to pay the workmen for a month or two. The board of regents has made arrange ments for a hospital fund at the state uni versity, says the Journal. Each student will be required to pay hospital dues of fl.50 per term, to be expended in providing the sick with medical attendance, nursing, etc. Whatever may have been the fortunes of the growers ef other fruits, the men with lemon groves are in luck. Think of getting $4 net for every box of lemons pioked. At that rate tbe man wbo has M acres in lemeas will clean np a comfortable fortune this season. Ei. California is beating the record for lynoh inf. The latest beard from haa been in Mendoeino county, where Jack Littlefield waa taken from the officers and swung from the nearest tree. Littlefield shot a man named J. M. Vinton in Round Valley re Of ntly. Vinton ia yet alivo, bnt Littlefield not. Both were oowboys and cowboys are supposed to have done the lynshing. The cheekiest proposition that has yet been, made is the one proposed by United States Senator Thomas Martin of the State of Virginia. In his speech made on the night of September 26th at Richmond, Va,, before the Democratic State Committee he advised against allowing any speakers from outside tbe State to come there and injeot agitation of the silver question. And yet the gold bugs tell us the silver issue is dead. It is thought that the yield of gold this year, in' the world will be about $170,000, 000.. Cor the laat 400 years of all the precious metals taken out of the ground, 61 per oent.has been lost or used in the arts. Figuring the products this year on the same basif, there would be about 66,300,000 to bs coined. This would give 30 cents apiece to the'people of the United States, England, Germany and Franca and nothing to the world outside. NEW TO-DAY.
