Recoed. VOL. XLV1IT. PIOCHE. NKVADA. THURSDAY, APRIL 21. 189S NO. 1 ik STAR ROUTE MAIL CONTRACTS. How Original Contractors Make Money t the Expense of the Subs. The last Silver Knight Watchman ays: The Postmaster General in hia answer to Senator Stewart's resolu tion, calling for information aa to all sub-let contracts, wns unable to furnish the required information. Hesaitl: "This would involve an immense amount of labor as there are nearl)' 20,000 routes sub-let." He, however, suggested that u small number of contractors might be sel ected, teu or twelve, and the requir ed information given as to them. The answer would illustrate the working system. A resolution was then passed the Senate calling for information aa to the contracts and sub contracts of twelve contractors, naming them. The answer of the Postmaster General showing how these contractors, who either reside in Washington or find it -agreeable to sojourn in the capital city, make money at the expense of the service, and also why the mail service on star route lines is so miserably per formed as it rrenerallv is in the far West. Then follows tlfe names of a dozen contractors each having from 500 to 800 separate contracts, among whom is L. H. Hansberger who secured the Milford and Pioche route. Han sberger has 814 contracts on which his annual pay is $207,784.02 This service begins on the 1st. of July nest and on 795 of these routes sub contracts have been filed with the department for which the contract pav is $202,552.49 and the subcon tractors' pay is $177,258.23, leaving a profit to the contractor of $25,294. 26 with more contracts to hear from. This is a sample of the twelve The total number of contracts for service in the names of these twelve contractors is 6,089 on which the ag gregate annual pay is $1,391,874.02. Of these sub-contracts have been, til ed in the department for 5,775 route on which the annual contract pay is 1. 289.756.52. and the sub-contract pay is$l,147.C10.60,the excess of the contract nav over the sub-contract pay for those routes on which sub contracts have been filed in the de partment being $142,145,92. per an". num.

A former chief of the United States geological survey has declared that the time is not fur distant when a man may start out from Denver and travel to Klondike, stopping every night at a mining camp. There are two American stamp mills on the straits of Megellan, and the day is not far distant when a chain of min ing camps will extend from Cape Horn to St. Michaels. Much the same as Other People. It seems to me that editors and writers are very much like other people. If you do them a favor they return it. and they are friendly to their friends. They resemble their fellow creatures in other way; they will not expend money, life and brain in explaining what a fine fellow Smith is, when Smith will not pat ronize them. In fact they are like the rest of the human family they stick t o those who stick to them: they support those who support them, and if a fellow kicks they kick back twice if necessary, once anyhow.

Anent the trouble at Stateline, the sharp article from that place publish ed last week in the Tribune results in the following communication, based upon another view of the sit uation and sent in by another cor respondent to the Tribune: Stateline, April 13 In your issue of April 9th your Sidteline corres pondent seems to have become rath er personal as regards the Popkiss mill and Creole mine und as it is all ways well to hear both sides of a story before judgment is passed we ask a little space in your columns to set aside those unwarranted state ments. In the first place, Mr. Popkiss has done more for Stateline than any man: and he has distributed a lot of good money among the people hert: he built a mill and demonstrated, to the satisfaction of every one that value can be saved with the aid of cyanide tanks, which will be added to the mill as soon as practicable. And now that he has a bond upon a two-thirds interest in the Creole mine, he will be able to keep the mill grinding steadily upon ore from this DromisiDg property, noivnia standing Mr Knight's "protest"; and enterprising citizens of State line are perfectly willing to give Mr Popkiss a chance and help him al in thuir nnwr. although there are those who would be glad, no doubt, to see him fall, even though them' selves were swamped. There are two shifts of three and five men working daily at the Creole mine, and this of itself demonstrates that the workmen are not afraid to work for Mr. Popkiss, but rather that they were anxions for work. The Ophir is not shut down, as stated in the article referred to, but is being worked steadily, and, with development, good ore is constantly being encountered. Company E of the 1st, Regiments of the Nevada National Guard was mustered into service at Elko lust week. Tuscarora, The new mill at the Dexter mine, Tuscarora, from which the town hopes so much, is apparently all right and the future outlook, good. Of operations there the last Times- Review suys: During the last few days the flow of water at the electric plant has in creased, and the power is gaining rapidly. The twenty stamps aud crusher are now run with ease. The remaining twenty stamps iave been placed in position, and it is the in tention of the management to at once start ten more stamps to crush ing as they have now ample power to run the thirty. Four new leaching tanks have been ordered for the cyanide works and will be placed in position as soon as they arrive. The new tanks will be oblong in shape, 16x32x3 feet dimension, and provided with wo discharge vents. . The tanks will more than double the capacity of the plant and will enable them to keep pace with the two mills which are now producing tailings luster than they can be cyanided. . The mine never looked as well as it does at present. Immense bodies of ore are being blocked out, and in the work of development more ore is being broken thau the two mills can handle at preseut. For this rea son work ou the additional stumps is being hurried as rapidly as pos sible, aud it is expected that within the next couple of weeks thirty stamps will be dropping on Dexter ore besides the Kinkead mills, which are now grinding on the softer ores. I Subscribers Should Read the Fol lowing Law and Avoid Trouble 1. All subscribers who do not give express notice to the contrary are considered wishing to continue their subscriptions. 2. If subscribers order the dis continuance of their periodical the publisher may continue to send it until all arrearages are paid. 3. If subscribers refuse or neglect to tuke their periodicals from the of fice to which they are directed, they axe responsible until they have set tled their bills and ordered them dis continued. 4. Subscriber moving to other places without informing the pub lisher, and the papers are sent to the former address, they are held re sponsible. 5. The courts have decided that refusing to take periodicals from the office or removing and leaving them uncalled for, is prima facie evidence of intended fraud. 6. If subscribers pay in advanoe they are bound to give notice at the end of the time they do not wish to continue taking it,and the subscriber will be responsible until an express notice with all arrearages are sent to the publisher. 7. The latest postal laws are such that uewspaper publishers can arrest anvone for fraud who take a paper and refuses to pay for it. Under the law the man who allows his subscription to run along some time unpaid, aud then orders th postmaster to mark it "refused" and have a postal card sent notifying the publisher.leaves himself liable to ar rest and fine, the same as for National Department.

"Fare, please," said the conductor to the younpr woman who Bat in the car, a picture of woe. "I can't pay you this trip," answered the younir woman, faintly. "Why can't you, ma'am?" In a aus picious tone. "I I have lost my car fare." . "Did you have it when you boarded this ear?" "Yes, but I haven't it now. You can take oiy address or give me yours, and I'll send it to you, 'I can't do that," said the man; "it'a apuinst the rules. If you lost your fare in this car, there is no reason why you should not find it apaiii. I'll help you to look for it." "No, no," said the woman in a state of alarm. "I tell you that it is lost, and you will have to trust me to send it to you." "Very strange!" said the conductor, suspiciously. "If you lost it on thin car I can't sea any reason why you can't find it again. How did you lose it?" "I I swallowed it!" shrieked the young woman, driven to desperation, and the conductor went out on the rear end of the car and cuffed a small boy's ears.
