THE COURT DECIDED.
Eight. Hour Law it Constitutional
The Supreme Court of Nevada has
banded down a decision in the
eight-hour law, sustaining its legal
ity. The opinion is written separ
ately by the three judges of the
eflurt. Judge Talbot and Judge
Fitzgerald sustained the law, while
Judge Belknap dissents. The law
was passed during the session of the
It provides that it shall be unlawful
for any party, company or corpora
tion to work men in mines, wills or
smelters for a period of more than
eight hours in twenty-four. The law
was attempted at the legislature of
the session before, but was beaten
by a few votes. At the last session
it passed almost unanimously.
Shortly after its passage an arrest
was made in uold Hill, the object
being to test the constitutionality of
theaw. In the lower courts the
law was declared unconstitutional,
and was immediately appealed to the
Supreme Court of the State. The
decision has been in the hands of the
udges for over four months, and its
final deoision meets the approval of
the unions of the State, who appeal
ed from the decision of the lower
Attorneys on the other side state
that the law will now go to the Su
preme Court of the United State.

The W. T. Smith Co. will send a

Any additional specimens will be
gadly received and taken care of by
the commissioner and his assistants.
Shipping tags have been left at both
Elko newspapers' offices, and the
Commercial Hotel, and can be had
for the asking.
Commissioner Yerington did not
top in Elko, as expected but went
throught to St. Louis on the flyer.
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN.
The analysis of water throughout
the State has far some time back
engaged the attention of the Depart
ment oT Chemistry. As a conse
quence, the analysis of soil samples,
which was first delay by fire and
than by lack of prorer facilities for
their analysis, has been compelled
to suffer neglect, because of the al
most exclusive attention ot the
Department to the current work that
was sent into the laboratory. It is
desired now to complete the annly
sis of the soil samples at the vt-ry
earliest opportunity and, therefore,
we take this method of giving
notice to the friends in the State
that for a few months they will con
fer a favor by not sendiugany srnnple
for .nalysis, unless it be in the case j
of an epidemic of disease in some
portions of the State,
