Deputy Sheriff W. A. Cook
brought up a young man who had
been arrested for stealing butter. A
barrel of butter was stolen and one
Alfred G. Humphry was seen to go
to hidden barrel and help himself to
about seven pounds. He was ar
rested, and at the trial a man ap
peared before the Justice as attorney
for Humphry. Justice refused to
permit the would-be attorney to
argue the case unless he showed his
diploma. Whereupon the attorney
laughed at the learned Judge and
poked a little-fun at hira, which
caused the Judge's ire to elevate and
he fined the attorney $500, and the
attorney stated that he not being in
the habit of carrying $500 in silver
around in his vest-pocket, requested
two days grace in which to pay the
fine. The Judge got hot at this and
ordered the attorney to be brought
to Pioche and board out fine in juil.
On the way np the District Attorney
met the officer, and learning the
circumstance, ordered the officer to
release the man.
The men found dead at the Vegas
and reported as being murdered, is
all wr3ng. Both men found dead
were old and sick when they went
there. One of them, named John
McDonald, was found dead near his
traps. He was suffering from
apthma and died from that disease.
He was small-sized man, a native of
England and aged CI years. The
other was named McDermott, had
been on a spree. No marks of vio
lence was found on either man.

Considerable work is now going on

Mr. Driscoll, mail inspector, was
ia town on Monday. Had been
called to Moapa to settle where the
postoffioe would be located. The
company wanted the office at the
railroad depot whilst a number of
the residents wanted it at the town.
Negotiation is now going on with
a view of incorporating some of the
best mineral bearing properties in
Pioche. The property lies to the
east of Spring Mountain and is con
sidered by several mineralogists aa
one of the finest mineral showings
that they have seen in this vicinity.
The transfer of the Little Mendha
property has been made and the
incorporation formed. The capital
stock is 500,000 shares at $1.00 per
share. The directors of the com
pany are B. M. Cornish, B. S. Rives
A. P. Gardiner, K. V. Zink, all of
Salt Lake, and E. P. Gordon. The
working fund has been provided
and men will be placed to work on
the property the latter part of next

Company, arrived Sunday night,

good and valuable consideration to

track laying will be resumed next
week at the Vegas.
An old man was caught selling
whiskey to the Indians by Willie
Cook and Floyd Denton, who re
ported the matter to Judge Lee.
The fellow admitted his guilt and
was ordered out of town.
The "Progress" goes after the
County Commissioners in regard to
the jail built at Caliente, owing to
the escape of the prisoner Daugherty.
We will state that the County Dads
had nothing to do with the building
of the jail, except furnishing the
iron door and grates. The residents
of Caliente had the jail constructed
themselves, and after the completion
of the building, pronounced it to be
the "finest jail in the state." The
officers at Caliente should not leave
broomstraws on the jail floor, thus
furnishing implements to criminals
in the jail whereby they are enable
to dig their way to liberty.
The candidates are now on the
wing. The Democratic caravan,
after visiting their constituents in
the north part of the county, started
Tuesday morning on their southern
tour. The Republican candidates
are canvassing in the south at the

It is said "dead things sometimes
crawl," and that is why the can
didates are just now humping them
A new postoffice has been estab
lished at Ruth, White Pine oounty.
Hon. J. A. Denton, the Demo
cratic iiomitu'e for State Senator,
Luu a card in this issue. Mr. Denton
is too well-known throughout the
county to require an introduction.
Suffice to say, that Mr. Denton,
whether in the Senate or Assembly,
has always proven loyal to the in
terests of Lincolo county.
Frank Williams of Goodsprings,
the Democratic nominee for the
Assembly, of whom we have spoken
of several times, has made a very
favorably impression with the resi
dents in the north, all feel confident
should he be elected that he will do
his duty well.
Ed. J. Cox of Bunkerville, the
Republican nominee for the
Assembly, is a young man raised in
this county. By occupation he is a
rancher and qualified for the posi
tion he seeks. He is oue of the
young men who plows the ground
and raises those good sweet potatoes
that we get from the south.
Light Wheatley, the Republican
uominee for State Assemblyman,
was born in San Francisco, Cal.,
thirty-five years ago. During the
lust six years he has resided in
Lincoln county. For ten years he
hus followed mining on the desert.
Besides opera tiug for himself, he
has filled various positions of trust
and responsibility with mining com
panies, his Inst position being with
the Southern Nevada Mining & Mil
ling company of Searchlight. For
the last year and a half he has acted
as deputy sheriff. Searchlight.
"I shall certaiuly go through
with the nomination, win if I can
and if elected do the best I know
how for the people of Linooln
county. Further I wish to say that
I take pride in the number of letters
which I have received and thut I
appreciate the sentiment expressed."
(Extract frou. u ieutr received from
S. E. Yount, republican nominee
for county commissioner.)
ihe above statement surely ought
to dispell the rumors which have
come down from the northern part
of the county to the effect that Mr.
Yount would not remain on the
ticket. Mr. Yount is not only going
to make the race, but he is going to
be elected by a lare majority. The
south will vote for hiui to a man,
and the north reuli.es that Mr.
Yount's candidacy ib not a mutter
of polities, but of securing rightful
representation. He is a democrat,
nominated on the republican ticket;
he stands for no party, clique or
clan, but for tho people und the in
terest of this end of the county.
