Mr and Mrs Ray Lee were visitors t the County 8eat on Monday last. Judge Talbot took is departure on Saturday's stage for Elko, going home via Salt Lake. Notice to creditors of the estate of Wm. Cuiverwell, deceased is pub lished in this issue. Alton Carman is expected home in about two weeks. Alton has been gone for over four years. The first Snow Storm of the season, oocured on Tuesday eve, bfet it had all disapeared by noon next day. E. F. Freudenthal of the Bristol O. S. L. Mining Company, is sport ing a new buggy. Frank Eisenmann came in from Delamar last evening by private conveyance. He is enroute to Deer lodge. After spending two weeks in town in attendance at court, F. R. Mo Namee returned to Delamar on Sun day. H. W. Turner, H. E. Fredenthal. and F. W. Dickie appraised the property of the Franks Estate, on Saturday last. Creditors. of the estate of John Frank., deceased, will find a notice to present claims, published in an other column of this issue. Mrs Joe Delmue was in from Round Valley on Monday last, She says their house will not be finished for a month yet. Mrs. W, Vf. Williams was in from Royal City yesterday. She is ar ranging to sell her cattle now run ning at Spring Valley and vicinity. - The water pipes are being put in order for cold weather. The tanks also are to receive attention and the flow from the springs is to be in creased. Mrs J. D. Campbell offers her Piano for Raffle, 150 tickets at $2.00, a ticket. It is a square piano Wm. Mo. Gammon make, and is in good condition. J. Eisenmann is arranging to make a cattle drive of about 600 head from his ranch at Pahranagat Valley, to the railroad whence they will be shipped east. A "phonograph party" was held at Henry Eiler's on Monday even- . ing and was attended generally by ladies and their friends who enjoy the renditions of the machine until quite a late hour. A. S. Thompson received this week a consignment of shelf hard ware and household utensils, also powder and other mining supplies and a good line of overshoes and winter goods generally. Hulse and Jenkins have a nice showing of good ore in the Paoific tunnel workings of the Yuba mine and if it will only continue it may result in work being started up again on the mine in some force. Pat Christian is doing the assess ment work on the Old Timer group of claims for this year. There is al ways a probadility of striking ore in work on this claim, as its past work ings showed it to be ful of surprises. The dance given by the A. O. U. W. on Friday evening last, was a grand success; both financially and socially. The grand march started at 8:30 and dancing continued until . 5 in the morning. Panaca and the Valley's was represented, and all reported having a good time. Work at Bristol will continue this winter and with an increased force. Samuel Newhouse hns been interest ed iu the enterprise and a gasoline hoist is on the road and will be placed Lext week on the old Gypsy shaft t" develop a body of low grade ore which waa uncovered in the low er workings years ago. The result of the next few month's workings will determine whether it will be continued in force or not. The on ly mines to be operated are the May Day nd the Great Eastern. THE JOHNNY INCORPORATED. Articles of incorporation of the Johnny Gold Mining and Milling company were yesterday (Nov. 20tn) filed in the office of the Secretary of State. The capital stock is placed at 300,000 shares of the par value of $1 a share. C. O. Newell is presi dent of the company J. G. Brown, vice-president; Frank M. Wilson, treasurer; W. J. Dooley, secretary; who with Elizabeth Wilson and Ella Newell, form the directorate. The company owna the Johnny mine and mining claims in the Stateline min ing district, from which some very high grade ore at long intervals have been coming upon the market, and will, it is said, be provided with a mill of ample capacity next season . NO MAIL. Sunday evening's stage left Uvada before the arrival of the train nnd consequently brought no through mail, express or passengers. The recent late arrivals of the stage were due to the stage waiting for the train, but the mail contract or finds it hard to impress that on public mind as the cause of de lay, and in trying to adjust the mat ter with the railroad, was told that the railroad would "wait just ten minutes for the stages," and answer ed ' the stage would wait just five minutes for the train." The result is that while the railroad is busy with live stock shipments as it has been for some time past we may look for mails to be 24 hours late, oc casionally, unless the Department takes a hand and orders otherwise. DISTRICT COURT. In the suit of Chas. Stein vs. John Roeder, judgment will be rendered for the plaintiff, but not until Judge Talbot makes a personal inspeo ion of the ground, which, at the request of both parties he has consented to do. In Eisenmann vs. Kelsay, tried last Spring, it was ordered, on mo tion fpr a new trial, that unless the defendant consent within thirty days to accept $250.00, without costs, in full satisfaction of his judgment, a new trial be granted in the case. An order was made authorizing Clerk Goodrich of the court to exe cute a deed, as commissioner, to the purchaser of the Keystone property on the sale made by the Receiver two years ago, as the receiver refus ed to exeoute such deed and is now without the jurisdiction of the court. Louise Frank was appointed Ad ministratrix of the estate of John Frank deoeased. Alice S. Cuiverwell and James Ryan was appointed administrators of the estate of William Cuiverwell deceased. , Jos. Conaway was appointed ex ecutor of the will of H. H. Lull de ceased and ordered to sell the interest in the Gold Cup mine at Delamar. Last Thursday evening a number of the friends of Judge Talbot at tended in a body at the Judges quarters and passed an enjoyable time until the early hours of morn It was strictly a stag party but the ladies who thought it should be otherwise and wouldn't let their hubbies attend, should remember that woman suffrage must come be fore they will be invited to every little circus that happens to be got ten up. The potato crop was more than half a failure hereabouts this year, throughout the surrounding val leys good and bad crops were com mon even on neighboring pieces of ground and it is thought the time of planting and the season last spring had more to do with the re sult than either the character of the land or water supply. They are bringing two and a half cents in town now while Delamar has been importing from the Utah side for two months past. The chicken thief has again made his appearance. Several people have lost their chiokens of late, and Mr. Hulse hearing a noise as if someone was trying to break into Prof. Prew itt's chicken coop last night, got up and fired a rock in that direction, the party, whoever he was, came near breaking his neck trying to get away. He got away with two of the chickens. Prof says, "Look out in the future, or you will hear some thing brap. nratruptliin of Niagara Falls.

Basis of Water Supply and Electric Power For the New Camp. We are informed that a gentleman well konwn in this section, one day this week posted a notice on the bank of Eagle Valley Creek, claim ing the right to use ell the water of the creek for three miles or more above Eagle Valley for power pur p.jHen, and claiming also the right to miv increase in the annual flow of t iiit stream which may be created l y piping all of the water for such a tlmiunce. We are also informed that he has pouted a second notice on the bank of the creek about half way between Eagle and Spring Valleys, claiming a reservoir site, and all water which uau be preserved and saved, over and above the present and usual flow of the creek. That a great deal of power can be generated by piping the waters of that creek for a short distance can not be doubted; for both the volume of the flow and the rapid fall of the stream will combine to create a force that will prove valuable, if a market or use for the same can be found near. In view of recent mining develop ments in Deerlodge, Stateline and Pike's Diggiugs, this may not only niesn the generation of electric power in the conyon above Eagle Valley and conveying the same by wire to those camps, but also the furnishing of an abundance of water to the three communities for domes- tio purposes and to operate mills and other reduction plants. The plan seems similar to that which is now in operation on Ophir Creek in Utah, where the waters of Ophir Creek are piped about eight thousand ieet, a great saving mide in the flow of that stream by the prevention 0! seepage or percolation and also evaporation, and the Gold Belt Water Company obtains power enough to pump all of the water necessary to the people and mills of Mercur, and this using less than half of the increased flow. We trust the enterprise may be speedily carried out and the miners of Deerlodge and Stateline be assur ed of a reliable water supply for their domestic and reduction pur poses, for at present the amount there is very limited and insufficient especially for the latter use, and the farmers need not be deprived of any of their irrigating quantity, but on the contrary the flow to them may be increased, and besides, water power may be afforded the mines for mills or other reduction works as is done at Mercur and Tintio in Utah. FATE OF THE GREAT SALT LaKE. It is prophesied that before the end of another century the Great Salt Lake will be utterly dried up. In the past year, we are told, its waters have receeded a mile. "The cause for this" saye The Irrigation Age, ,'is said to be the excessive drain made upon it by the irrigation enterprises of the Mormons. Con trary to the theory which was accept ed for a time, this great lake is not fed by underground springs, but by the Jordan, Weber, Ogden and Bear rivers, and when the water of these streams is intercepted for irrigation purposes, it necessarily decreases the water supply of Salt Lake, leaving it much to the mercy of the sun and the attendant evaporation which is constantly going on and which is slowly but surely drawing the waters until in time only a bed of dry salt will remain. The cause of the salt ness of the water of this mysterious body of water has been a matter of conjecture to scientists for years The most plausible theory is that the saltness is due to the high altitude which causes excessive evaporation, while there is practically no outlet to the lake. A scientist after a number of experiments has expressed the conviction that if all the salt supply of the world were out off, except that found in the bed of the lake, there would still be enough to last the world for ages, so deep is this deposit. Regarding the decadence of this lake a writer recently said "When the Great Salt Lake is g'-ne it will be missed as a wonder and a salt factory for little else. Its waters destroy vegetation instead of nour ishing it. Should the fresh waters of the lake be evaporated or disap pear into the ground, thousands of square miles would cease to be inhab itable. Some years ago the Utah lake region was made Government res rvation, an act which has kept irri gation companies from drawing cither from it or from its feeders.' NEW TO-DAY Notice to Creditors.
