W on . too 4dTrtHln it orBllKl npon .ppllotloB t tkaofflM. Intent V 'da Pwtofflo. at Ptoch., KTd. Delivered by Carrier at 50 on' per Month. Cold weather the first of the week, but since then it han been warm and pleasant. The sight in the Muddy and Virg in Talleys at the present is beautiful, the fruit trees being all in blossom. There are a number of gentlemen, connected with the Utah-Nevada company, expected to arrive hero the lutter part of next week. On Wednesduv. J. Tulloch, with four miners and supplies, left for the coalCelds near Patterson moun- .in tn roanmn work OD the COal mines at that place. We wonder, before adjourning, whether the legislators overlooked the little matter of euacling a law prohibiting members from "dead heading" it on railroads. On yesterday quite a quantity of suriDliea were shipped to Jackrautm, and the work of putting the 'Rabbit claim in good condition for inspec tion started in on. In the North SUr mine, the prop erly of the Pioobe-Nevada company, some verv fine ore has been struck at a depth of GO feet, the assays of which shows an average of over 100 nnnnu in dilvRr And 04 VCV CO lit lead. Supt Rives feels quite elated. The meat market of Chas Culver Jr nt f'ulicnte. is doing a laree business in supplying the out laying country. He always gives his patrons the best of meats ami mut tons and veal can always be bad there. Send in your orders to him. Who says Pioche is dead? If a person would see the f jur-horse rigs ooiuing in here they would believe the old town to be a lively corpse. But there will not be any boom here. Pioche will gradually assume some of the prosperity that has hit Ne vada: slowly, but surely. Articles of incorporation of the Las Vegas Bank 4 Trust Compauy have been filed with the County Clerk. Tbe. capital is $100,000. The corporation is composed of Los Angeles bunkers, among whom is F. E. Davis, J. M. Robinson, C. M. Robinson, M. S. Gregory aud T. H. Howe. A few of the recent converts to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints are said to be red-hot preachers when they get up in the church at Punaca. They never knew what joy was until the became a Moraon with a piece of "calico" insight. Gadl we feel as going and doing likewise. Dr. Gusman of Salt Lake has been down here for the last week examining mining property. The first of the week, in company wilh Supt Joe Free of the E. & F. com pany, went out to inspect the Idu May mine, where he spent three days looking over the country. On his return to Pioche he has been en gaged examining minesowned by the Pioche Con. company with T. J. Osborne. There was discovered a gold ledge out noar what in early days was known as the Gray Eagle m'ning claim, upon the hill just above the Alps. The ledge had boen trenched on in former days on the surface, but must have never been tested for gold. The assays taken from this ledge, which is about a foot wide on the surface Buowed an average of $32 in gold. The highest assay went over $330 gold. There is an old shaft nearby and the ledge is running into it. A. W. Scott and P. J. Donohue arrived Tuesday night, accompanied by a force of mechauics from Salt Lake, and the next morning Mr. Donohue proceeded to the Abe Lincoln property, where he at once commenced the preparatory work for installing the jigs and cyanide process, most of the materal for which had been shipped before the gentlemen departed from Salt Lake. Manager Scott aud Mr. DouoLue are satisfied that the undertaking, with these additions to the mill, will prove a financial success. LINCOLN COUNTY MIoES. Mining affairs iu Lincoln county 1 . X' L 1 AMn are on tlie upgraue. iiov umj a. the prospectors in the hills thick, but milliner men from Ooioraao, Idaho, Montana and California are huntiucr investments. Tbe old dis tricts, which have been idle for years, owing to the lack of trans portation for supplies and shipping facilities are attracting attention aud and a number of bonds and sales of mines areoccuring daily, At Pahranagat District there have been several mining properties bonded, and and on Monday night. Logan Russell of Denver, accom panied by Iim expert, Murray Lee, arrived in Pioche, on their way to Irish Mountain, with a view of obtaining a bold on mines in that district which he had reported to him. Considerable milling property has been bonded in Tempihute dis trict recently and a certain amount on tbe purchased price has been planked down The old Wyaudotts compiuy, owned by Philadelphia parties, have recently had their agents out there looking over ground with a view of the resump tion of work. The Tempihute com pany, owned in Chicago, Illinois, has hud an offer made them for the twelve patented claims owned by the co-upanv, and they now have the proposition under consideration. There are thirty odd patented claims iu Tempihute District which have not had a pick stuck in them for twenty years, the owners awaiting facilities to work their mines at a profit. As one of Jhe owners once remarked to us, "We may never reap any benefit from our in vestment, but our grandchildren may." Groom District, with one of the largest bodies of lead-silver ores in the state, has lain dormant for years waiting for a time when it may be profitably worked. Down at Yellow Pine District, which is the largest district in the state, being sixty miles in length by about forty in width, there is great life aud activity. The mines in this dint-id are mostly under the control of Los Angeles parties. The Taiu O'Shauter group, owned by the Newberrys of that city, as the rail road is running near them, just on the opposite side of the range, will soon resume work. The Keystone group of mines, composed of Keystone, Whutnot and Honduras claims was only the other day disposed of for $337,500. This is the greatest gold proposition in the district and was purchased by a British yndicate. The claims were located by Jones Taylor in 1892. TheKeystoue group of mines is one of the best known in that section and has produced hundred of thous ands in gold. Iiiiao Blake of Denver organized the company, which, dur ing trouble, was attached and sold. The old Potosi group, consisting of four claims, incorporated under the name of the Potosi Mining com pany, but formerly went under the name of the Silver State Mining company, is now under bond to tuiuiog men for $100,000. This property is in reality owned by Jas. Morgan, an old Culiforuia and Ne vada mining man. The Allen G. Campbell group of 21 patented claims is understood to be also under boiid,and a number of other mining properties of less note will soon change ownership. Eldorado, the oldest district in the Btate, where mining was don? years before Nevada was ever thought of by the Spaniard and Mexicans, and has belonged to Nmw lMexico and Arizona as well as Nevada, is one of the greatest producers of hidden treasures in the west. Its shipments amouuts into tlio millions. Several ! years ago, a stranger looking over the bullion-tax book, exclaimed, "where in hell is El Dorado?" The great draw back to El Dorado haB been her transportation facilities and fuel. One has been solved by tbe railroad, which at preseut is within fifty miles from there, and the other by coal oil and gasoline. Eldorado has capital, gasoline and treasure in her bowles and will sur pass herself in near future in de livering up her metal treasurers. As to Searchlight, joining on El Dorado, she is tilled with , good mines, and mines that are second to none in the state. They can't be beat. At Ferguson district affairs are moving along as usual. Nothing much doing but taking out ore aud shipping gold. Whan it is taking into consideration that the Buru-berger-Delamar mines has only ten years run of ore in sight, one is not liable to look upon it as a "sma'l potato." Eagle District is making prepara tions to get a "good ready" on and after the settling of her difficulties she will be sending forth s stream of goldaloug with her pisters.

Large number of people are going in from all directions and lots are be ing sol 1 off like hot cakes. MoWilliiimsis reported to be gather ing pocketsful of money. The clapper of the-bell on the I'anaca church is trembling to sound the auuounceineut of several mar riages. The results of the billing and coning indulged in during the winter by tlie young people is rsult ing fruitful, and the little blossoms will appear later. District Attorney Ben Sanders departed for Las Vegas on Tuesday ou very important business. Undid not state what this business was. Perhaps it was to look over the route he picked out from Las Vegas to Charleston Mountain, in the in terest of the "Lumber Trust," whereby they will convey the lumber into the Vegas. Sheriff Sale.
