Christmas day passed quietly in Pioche and tbe little children re ceived tbeir usual quota of sweet meats and toys. Sunday night was the coldest ex perienced in this couutry for several years. The thermometer marked three degrees below zero. Now that the law in regard to kill ing of deer has expired those animals have came out of their hid ing and showiug up plentiful in the ?3 hills. J Next Monday the newly elected oounty officials will take their offices Let all have their bonds properly , drawn so that there will not be any H delay. A winter camp is now being es tablished on the Gordon (incorpor , ated) mines seven miles west of town, and three men will prosecute the work of sinking steadily. There were 850 votes cast in '' Lincoln county at the election in November and 2,300 poll tax col lected. This was owing to the con struction of the railroad. Annual assessment work is being performed on the Manhattan group in Highland district by Jas. A, Nesbitt, the purchaser under forced sale. Four men are at work there. This section of country is surely in need of snow. The springs in the moontaius have been dried for several months and the wells that have never heretofore been known to go dry have long since refused the acqua fluid. Work preparatory to retimbering tbe Phoenix shaft by the Pioche West company was started during , the week. The timber for the work j will be shipped in all cut to size and l work to completion rushed. A hoist will be erected as early as possible. t Secretary of the Manhattan Co., writes from Suit Lake tq.JL-.-J, l )3borne that he had deposited in I bank in Suit Lake to his credit 1 money with which to pay for the an nual labor on the company's mines' ! This indicates that the company will redeem the property recently sold at sheriff's sale. It is very likely that when the railroad starts building in the direc tion of Pioche that the reservoir at the mouth of Round Yalley will be oondemned. It is the only feasable way out of Condor canyon. This reservoir furnishes water for irrigat ing considerable land near Pauaaa. It cannot be helped. Improvements must go on. i The Little Mendha Mining com pany, recently incorporated, owning i property adjoining and west of the original Mendha, has provided a treasury fund sufficient to carry on tbe work of sinking a vertical shaft for one year and work is expected to commence not later than January 15th. Tbo individuals stock of the company has been pooled for one year and the remaining treasury Stock is off the market indefinitely. The old Silver Peak mine, east of the Boss and Lafayette, has been sold by John Jochimsen to Lloyd, Cook and Gordon. There is a shaft TOO feet deep on this property, sunk on a quartzite fissure, and a tunnel has been run 150 feet to tap the shaft for ventilation. One hundred faet more is required to complete this and the work is being prosecuted How. It is the intention of the par ties to place a gasoline hoist at the shaft and crosscut the great Yuba dike on the Scranton claim adjoin ing. Ibis will require an additional 100 feet. There is good milling ore in the Silver Peak from the grass roots to the 700, but high grade ore has been found on the north con tact of the dike, and the owners in tend to develop it from the 700 foot Itvsl. 'FAREWELL AND HOW." And now the year 1904 has about run it allotted time and on Saturday night at 12 o'clock the last sand in the hour-glass will drop and 1904 will be numbered with tbe things of the past. Taken altogether this old year has dealt very liberal with Lincoln oounty. The railroad has been built, and is about completed to Los Angeles, and there has been Beveral small towns created along the line, and both Caliente and Las Vegas will become towns of impor tance in the near future. The mines in several of the mining camps have greatly enhunced in value and large bodies of ore have been uncovered. The Qurtette property of Search light and Bamberger-Delumar min ing property at Delamar are tbe peers of, if not the superior, of any mines in the State. Old ElDorado District, whioh has lain idle for so many years, with ouly a few prospectors working, is about again to bloom into activity. It is now known that water can be had at the mines in sufficient quan tity to build the mills at the mines, thus doing away with a twelve-mile haul. And the fuel problem, which was one of the most difficult, has been solved. Heretofore the wood for the mill mus obtuiued from the Colorado river during the spring floods, when all persons in the dis trict would be engaged gathering drift wood, and after the wood was consumed the mill closed down and all hands would seek other quarters. Now oil can be used, the same as at the quartz mills in Searchlight. Yellow Piue District, filled with developed mines now that the rail road runs through the district, wi 1 be in evidence and activity will soon ressume.for supplies can be gotten in cheaply, doing away with a 45 and CO-mile wagon haul over a ' very sandy road, and mostly up-hill the entire distance. Freiberg is awakening and Sup't J. V. Brooks is pushing developing work on the Empire Company's property. At Eagle Valley District, although wound up in litigation at tbe present, there is a bright future before it, for it does possess meri torious mines, and it is hoped that the troubles will soon be settled. At Pioche mining affairs are look ing brighter than it has for years, and though it has been very quiet the lust several years, with the com ing of tbe New Year the durk mist thut has been hovering over this vicinity is vanishing and a bright and active era is dawning Farewell old year, you have been kind to us. Welcome 1905. F. B. McNamee and Sheriff John son arrived in town last evening. Orr & Christian netted over $700 on the car-load of copper ore recently shipped. If it is ducks you want, go to PHhranagat Valley, The air, the water and the valley is full of 'em. Senator Campbell will leave on the 5th of next month for Salt Lake, and Miss Vicky Eilers will accom pany him to that city, from whence she will proceed to her home in Berlin, Germany. It was with difficulty that suffi ciout men could be secured during the week to work on claims that an nual labor had been neglected until the last minute. The demand was much greuter than the supply. Wm. McRae of Salt Lake arrived this morning. He intends startiug an assay office up on the divide. J. C. Healv also came in with Mr. Mc- Kae. He is u young miuing en gineer and contemplates residing in Pioche for awlule. On Tuesday.while coming in from Comet, between Bennet and that place, Peter Lynch fell off the wagon and laid out all night. Fortunately he was not seriously injured as at first thought, only straining his back. Several fully equipped prospect ing outfits have crossed through Lincoln County during the lust two weeks. They carried with them as saying f urnances. This is tht only way to prospect and know what a person is doing. Chas. A. Thompson and bride are expected to arrive in Pioche his evening. They were married on Christmas day at Empire. Mrs Thompson's maiden name was : Selena Sullivan and taught school in ; this connty several terms. Thir numerous friend wish tbem joy. The last two days very fine look ing lead-copper silver ore is being brought into Pioche by Sup't Rives from the mines of tbe Pioche-Ne-vada company four miles from town. The ore has been encountered in 1 the deepest workings of the mines and proves that ore goes downj with depth. CHRISTMAS TREE. Under the auspicies of the Epis copal church, and conducted by Mr. F. W. Dickie, one of tbe most suc cessful and interesting Christmas exhibitions ever given in Pioche occurred at tbe Hotel Cecil last Wednesday night. The occassion was a Christmas tree, beautifully decorated, given for the little folks, and tbe picture confronting one making his entrance to the little hall was impressive of pleasure and and lusting in its effect. At this time the little folks had congereg ated.ocoupying the front seats, every one bearing brilliant expressions of pleasant anticipations upon tbeir countenances and a glee unexce'led among children, parents and speotat ors prevailed the entire audience. Wben the time had arrived for tbe opening und the hall packed to its full capacity, the bout introduced Hon. T. J. Osborne, who addressed tbe little tots and tbe larger ones in that facinating and instructive man- uer. ' Proceeding this attractivo feature of the occusion recitations were given by the following children, after which, Santu Claus. that good and mirth giving man, made each little heart glad with appropriate presents ItecitutioD by J. VV. Christian My Stocken was exceptionally well rendered and elicited considerable applause. Chester Cook won the admiration of tbe audience by his cool and manly munner in delivering his recitation, the name of which tbe writer was unable to learn. Mattie Orr, Ella Hulse and Ralph Goodrich all performed tbeir parts excellently and elicited applause at each conclusion. Little Lena Frank captivated the audience in the delivery of Santa's Little Helpless, while Duvid Lloyd put the entire audience in an uproar of applause at the conclusion of Santa Claus Middle Name. Tbe presents were then delivered, after which the hall was cleared and one of tbe most enjoyable aud pleas ant dances ever given iu Pioche took pluce and lasted till the sma' we houis. The writer is requested to extent the thanks of the little folks to Enster members of the church for their liberal donations to a - Christ mas tree away out here. Not one things occurred to mar the pleasure of anyone and alto gether the occasion could hardly be excelled and is long to be rememb ered by those present. Present your bills to the County Clerk to-day as the Commissioners will meet next Monday. J, G. Brown of Fay was in Pioche sizing up tbe situation. He reports that Geo. Moody continues quite sick. The suit between Chas. Lytle and Mrs Hammond in regard to tbe Gold bug mining claim in Eagle Valley District has been decided in favor of Mrs Hammond. In tbe performance of annual as sessment now going on at the Cali fornia claim, adjoining tbe old Bul lionville mine, ore bas been struck, it is said, which bids fair to rival the old producer. There is a greater amount of an nual assessments being done on min ing property this winter than for twelve years past. It is doubtful if one claim reverts back to the government for luck of represent ative. HOMESEEKER3 EXCURSION TO UTAH AND NEVADA. Have your friends come to Utah and Nevada.

U. C Roughedge is tbe man who robbed the Tonopah Club faro box a few days ago. At least that's the name the fellow signs. He sunt a letter to tbe proprietors Saturday. In it he directed them to a spot where they would find a Wells Fsrgo check he did not care to cash. The pro prietors of the big gambling bouse now have the letter and iuteud to frame it. It reads as follows: 12-12-'04. On tbe desert in the viciuity of To uopah, Nye county, Nev. The Tonopah Club, Tonopah, Nev, Geutleinen: When in tbtt course of human events it becomes necefsury tor one people to separate others from tbeir money, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires thut they dissolve the causes which impelled the separation. Weholdthe.se tiuths to be self evident (or nearly so), that wine, women and the love of money bas caused uiany( a good man to go wrong. A mixture of these caused us to need the money. Some durk night, after the moon has gone down, if you'll go gently buck in tbe passage way, in tbe rear of the Club saloon and feel cautiously on the left hatid side of the hole, near the sill under the building, you'll find your coin sack containing W. F. & Co check. You understand banking business better tbau I and will have less trouble in collecting it. This is not returned because you need it for seed. However, you may use it as such aud I am sure your pair of Jacks will soon swell it up to over $GU0. 'Please pardon my spirit of levity and I'll close by thanking you for past favors and nssuring you of my best wishes. Very truly, U. C. ROUG HEDGE. The proprietors not to be outdone by tbeir shrewd and witty thief im mediately posted the following on their bulletin' board: Tonopiiu, Nevada, Deo 16, 1904. U. C. Roughedge, Dear Sir: The check and sack were in place, as you intimated. You deserve the rest because you earned it. If you want to tuke another con tract we will furnish you with your own tools. (Sigued) TONOPAH CLUB. The authorities at Tonopah have no clue as to the identity of tbe robber and it is probable he will never be captured. STATE NEWS. When a Nevada man buys a"gold brick" he should never squeal. W nils worth has all moved to Sparks. Tbe deserted cats hold tbe town. This is the last issue of tbe Dis puted to be published in Wadsworth With a largely increased plant we will enter the field of journalism at Sparks and our first issue in-the new town will be turned from the press as soon after the first of the year as possible, under tbe name of the Sparks Dispatch. Tbs Goldfield toughs have sent cat a eaict ih;:i tbe Chinmen and Japanese must go and the Celestials and subjects of the doughty Mikado have already started to heed the in junction. J) or several montus the aliens have been flocking to the gold camps until finally they be come so numerous that tbe miners and business men of tbe place thought it best to" protect their own interests by ordering them from the two camps. Thus far orders have been obeyed and no trouble is an ticipated, Wherever there is a band of Colorado toughs tbey always do this. A well informed Missouri paper gives this sure reocipt for raising a boy for the penitentiary: When he does not want to go to school, let him loaf; when he gets into mischief and your neighdor reports it to you, curse your neighbor in the presence of your boy. When he gets a little lurger and purloins something of value andyou find itout just laugh at bim and let it go. When he gets iuto the justice court end is found guilty, pay the fine, curse the jury and every one connected with the matter and pity the boy, and yon will soon have a splendid candidate for the pen.

The subjoine iu regard to EL dorado canyon is taken from the Mohave Miner: Charles Gracey came in from Los Angeles Thursday last aud depurted the following day for Eldorado Cunyon. While in the city he purchased a Loistiug engine for tbe Techaticup mine, twaidesore wugons and a large Hinouut of min ing supplies. He will have fitted up a big team and will haul direct from Kingham, believing that he can save money by not waiting the repair of the Arizona & Utah railroaJ It is his intention to forward all machinery to the niiues at tbe canyon and then begin active development operations. A. deep well will at once be sunk at the mine. Jackson McCracken, after whom the famous old McCracken miue, in the south part of the county is named, died recently in Santa Cruz.
