Oa that date Judge Talhnt rendered a de cision in the case of Dave Francis aud James llollinger vs. Chas. Lytic. The decision was in favor of Lytle, and held that the evidence did not show that he had been guilty of any fraud in inducing the plaintiffs to part with their title; that the trsdu was mado when all the parties were on the claim aud that the opportunity was open to all concerned to test the value of the property. One or two orders in estate matters were made, and the date for the next sitting for tho trial of cases was fixed at August 10th, at which time a jury will be again called, unless in tho meantime the pending cases are transferred. These cases are those in volving part of the townsite of DeLamar. Gold at State Line. Reports come to town of some very prom ising gold discoveries at State Lino district made during the pust ten days. Quartz oarrying gold in large quantities has been found in several veins at the old Nato Hansen stage station, which is about four miles in an easterly direction from the Utah Spur claim. Over a dozen locations have leen made and vigorous prospecting is going on there. At Fagle Valley district also, on the Nevada side of the line, and noma throe miles southwest of the Utah Spur, gold dis coveries are being reported, and all claim owners thereabouts are muoh , encouraged over the outlook. RAIDED. Pierson's Pasture at Pahranagat Val ley Raided and 14 Horses Run Off. Pahranagat valley, from its nearness and the good feed which it supplies, ha been used very extensively of late for the pastur age of horses by people of DeLamar, who, after arriving at the new Khlorado, unable to dispose of their animals, had no further immediate use for them. Junes Ilerson's ranch at the lower end of the valley, is a favorite place for ranching such stock, and on the night of the 8th inst., between 80 and 90 head of horses, some of the bet in the country lieing among the number, were in his field. On the morning of the Oth, Lou Richards, who works at the ranch, found the pasture fence on the west side cut in two places and an examination of the stock left showed 14 head of the best horses to le missing. With an Indian's aid it was discovered that a party of three men had evidently raided the field during the previous uiyht. Their camp iu the gully about a mile above the much on the west side was found, and tracks leading to and from the field where they had cut the fence. They were trailed up the canyon t the west to near Summit springs, where the animals appear to have broken away and returned to the field, breaking through the fence and tearing out two or three posts. These posts were then taken out altogether, laid aside, and the animals recaptured and taken off again on the smna track. The thieves have gone in a southwest di rection aud postal cards giving a description of as many of the missing brands as could be remembered, are out.

Mr. Pat Sheehan, well and favorably knou n iu Lincoln Co., has beeo appointed superintendent of the mill; the company xre fortunate in their placing Mr. Sheehan iu his petition, for a more competent man could not be found. It is the heartfelt wih of the community that the new plant will be a xueeem, for its own ers, Mesnra. i Hson anil Jfoolry, have proved themselves the right men in the right place. McKinley Delegates. The 1'lko Independent raps the Repub licans of the West on tho knuckles w'no have endorsed McKinley and still say they are for free silver, in this manner: ''McKinley and sound money are all the rago with the Republicans east of the Rocky mountains. West Virginia has just declared for the twins. How does Mc Kinley and sound money, w hich is simply another name for the gold standard, set on the stomachs of the Republicans who pro fess to be for free silver! " We can answer that very easily. Those deleg ates who go to St. Louis and cast their votes for McKinley are traitors to the West and the silver cause. They profess to up hold silver, when, by casting their votes for (Jold McKinley, they know they are driving another nail into silver's coffin. Such men as these, and those who send them there with such instructions, should not receive a single vote or any support whatever from the states that are upholding the cause of silver; and if we had the power, would ostracize them from the arena where silver is the slogan, and forco thorn to retire to tho stronghold of Cleveland ami McKinley, namely, Wall Street. Their slogan of Mc Kinley and silver is an absurdity of absurdities. At the Muddy. A letter just received from the Muddy valley states that the unusual cold of this season is manifested there in a condition of things such as no resident of the valley ever experienced before. The frost in April killed the first alfalfa crop to the ground. It would have been ready for the Gist cut- ing in about ten days. Small grain will amount to but little this season for the same reason, (.rain stood nearly a foot high in many places when the April frost occurred, and the continued and heavy winds since have set back all garden stuffs and other crops. An unusual amount of sickness for the season has also prevailed. Whooping cough and measles have visited the children; J, S. Huntsman has lost a boy aged 18 months, and Mr. and Mrs. t erry Huntsman an in fant of 2 months, from the plague. Anothor store has been added to the valley by Mr. Charles Cobb, which gives two stores, the other being conducted by Brig Whittemore, and both of them at Overton, People continually oonie and go from the valley, but on the whole the place is settling up, and one of the must pressing needs now is a flouring mill. Such an enterprise could be operated by water power, and negotia tions for the erection of one are now pend ing. The Thomas and Burgess mill, in the mountains northwest of the valley, furn ished the valley with lumber this spring while water lasted, and the difference be tween the hauling of this necessity 50 miles and 150 was appreciated. On tho whole, however, the valley is prospering, and the foundations are being laid to improve the time in anticipation that the projected rail road will pass through in this vicinity. A Monster Steer. A monster steer, which is. owned by Charles l'ayno of Wichita, Kansas, a dealer in wild animals and curios, is attracting the attention of tho curious in that part of the couutry. Mr. l'ayno camo into possession of the animal, now three years old, about six months ago. Its growth since that time has beeu phenomenal, and the question is asked Mr. Payne many times a day, "When is it going to stop growing? 1 ho steer is now six feet and four inches high and eleven feet long, or seventeen feet long 'count ing from the tip of its tail. It weighed ouly 1800 pounds threo months ago, its present weight is S.'IOO pounds, and if it con tinues to grow as it has iu the past six months, it will some day be as big as a full grown elephant. Cattlemen pronounce it aa one of the greatest freaks known in tho stock line. They say it will continue to grow until it is seven or eight years old, and when it fully grown it will have obtained a weight of from 4000 to (loOO pounds. The giant ia perfectly symmetrical in its development, and is colored and marked like a Jersey, Mr. Payne has not offered it for sale, and says he intends to wait and see how big it gets. Only one other such freak has been known and that was the famous "Kansas Queen," a very large heifer that was show n around tho country as a side show attraction, and was purchased by Adam Forepaugb for $."000. It had previously netted its owner a profit of $13,000. Ex. John R. Cook, who has taken out several letters patent on refrigerators, went down to DeLamar on Saturday to erect one of his latest in the store of D. L. Wertheimer & Co., in which to keep butter and other stuffs. The devise is purely mechanical, is cheap and promises to he much sought after, as it requires but little water to se cure good cool air; but little ia lost and that only through evaporation. A hobo cripple who industriously worked every passenger traiu for several days, was found to be supporting six able bodied vags with the alms given him, says the Wads worth Dispatch. He was jailed and the gang fled the town. Notice.

DeLamar, Nov., April 21st, 1800. A dispatch in the San Fraooisco Call ro utes a phenomenal and almost unbeliev able confinement of a woman at Fowler, Ind., which ia as follows: Mrs. Freitz lleiniuit, who lives about a mile north of Fowler, Ind., gave birth last night to six iufante, four boys and two girls. All are doing well. Two years ago Mrs. lleinznit gave birth to triplets. A meteor of unusual size and brilliancy swept across the icnith Tuesday morning of last week about 1 o'clock. Its course was from northeast to southwest. Those who witnessed its flight say that it crossed above the peak of Sugar Loaf mountain and d'sap peared in the vicinity of the Occidental mine. Prof. Schaum describes it as being ap parently of tho dimensions of a whisky bar rel. During its flight athwart the western sky it left a fiery trail in its wake resein bling the toil of a comet and lit up the hill tops and plain east of town with a lurid glare almost as blinding in its intensity, Virginia Enterprise. General George Sears Greenof New York, the oldest living graduate of West Point, has inst celebrated his 95th birthday. He was born in Rhode Island, and was gradu ated from West point in 1823. He was en gaged in government engineering until the war broke out, when he went to the front and rose to the rank of Brigadier-General, after a brilliant war record, be was pro moted to brevet Major-General in 805, and retired from active service a year later. The report that the nations of Europe are behind Spain in the Cuban affair is hazy and equivocal. If it means anything it means that they are so far behind her that they have no intention of catching up with her policy of cruelty and oppression. New York Mail and Express. FROM DELAMAR. U. S. Mineral Surveyor Swindler of Pioche, has been in town for a few days on business. Charley ltoskn is making one of his regu lar trips and interviewing old friends and customers, of which he has many. As predicted in our last letter, he "April Fool has tooted her whistle," aud will be running full bla.it in a couple of days turn ing out the bricks that will make 'tho own ers happy. They deserve them for their push and energy. The contract let by the county commis sioners to clean the Main street of the town, was completed on the I'.Hh inst. Messrs. Boggs and Co. have given good satitfaction, and though what was thought to be a cheap job, they have done good work and made good wages. The work ou the Magnolia tunnel is pro gressing finely, three shifs are working pushing it to completion, and we hope soon to chronicle that tho old pioueer mine of the district will produce the rich ore from the lower levels as she used to in the early days of the camp. Domestic trouble came near depopulating DeLamar a few evenings ago. A young benedict thinking that home matters were not O. K., concluded to exit by the right flank, and forthwith swallowod a dose of pizen, but the doctors went him one better, and pumped the sump dry. As far as known all is O. K. Mr. John R, Cook of Pioche, chairman of tne Hoard 01 county commissioners, was visiting our burg for a few days the fore part of this week on business, and meeting old friends, which are legion. Mr. Cook has experienced our change of climate and complained of feeling the symptoms that are so prevalent at the present time. -. Reports are iu circulation that several mining experts arrived 1111 tho bullion coach last Monday to examine the DeLamar property in the interest of English capital. The DeLamar mines are known to be the greatest in Nevada, but Capt. DeLamar has no objection to a big bank account, provid ing it is big enough, and the parties that purchase tho bonanza we predict will never regret it. Mr. Jas. Pierson (of Pahranagat valley was 111 town a lew days ago, and reports that about a week ago, that some one who had evidently more nerve than judgment, stole some fourteen head of horses out of his pasture, taking the best. We think that anybody that will resort to stealing horses at these times, when they can be bought for a song, is a fit subject for the insane asylum and if caught should get the full penalty. An epidemio seems to be prevailing in DeLamar; a number of our citizens are com plaining and a large number are confined to their beds with what seems to be the la grippe. The changes of weather that has been experienced the past two or three weeks is attributed to be the cause, and some think that the water ia impure and causes the sickness. The weather has changed for the better, and it is sincerely hoped that it will be beneficial to the general health of the people. the snutn isros. trom w Into Kiver ar rived in town on the 17th inst., bringing with them aomo ore from a new find near Cave valley that is pronounced by competent judges to be grand.

The near 10-stanip mill of this company is the topic of conversation in DeLamar. It was the intention to drop the stamps on the 18th inst., but in starting all new plants there are little minor details that have to be arranged, and the company being desirous to have no set backs, concluded to postpone the start nntil they were perfectly sure that everything was in first-class order for a con tinuous run. 1 he null is a model ol per fection, and reflects the greatest of credit upon Mr. J. W. Stevens, under whose able superintendency it was constructed. At present it is a 10-stamp mill, bat at any time that the management wishes they can increase it to a 30-stamp without interrupt ing the workings. The process is wet crushing electric plates and cyanide. The company has been to considerable expense, some thirty or forty thousand dollars in bringing water to ths mill, and are rewarded by having a good three inch flow.
