On the 3rd iost, I was notified that the dead body of a man had been found about 40 miles north west of Searchlight, I at once got conveyance and assistance and went to the place where tbe body wau, and after an examination, and find ing a Lincoln County Poll tax re ceipt for 1904, made to Cbas Web!( on the remains, I came to the con clusion that the mnauie was that o! Chits. Webb, a teamster, who b.i.i been in (he employ ef the Southern Nevada M. k M. Co., and who hud It ft lit re very suddenly on the niyut of July 11th, 1904. I found the remains io a small enve, or under a shelf on the north side of,snd in the uniu wnsh, lending to ibe pass, that is crossed in 1 Dorado Canrou to Good Springs, Nevuda, and about 25 mites due west of 1 Dorado Can yon summit; 1 buried the body where it was found sod marked the grave by buildings stone monument about 2 feet high, immediately ubtive the grave on tbe bank of tbe wash. I found the body lying in a per- fecly natural position, just as if he had laid down to take a sleep, bis head resting on a small sack of his trinkets, which be evidently in i for a pillow; he lay on bis left su!e fend wits fully drrssedjust the same as when last seen here, the rmulus axidefrom the bead and ban. is, in a natural death state, and -m members had the flesh eaten I presume by rats. In tbe sack which his bead rested on, was three lemons, and alongside the body was a quart bottle full of water, asd partly under him was another bottle about half full of whiskey; all of which shows that he did not die of thirst, and from lbs natural position that he was found lying in I Bhould eay he died from hesrt failure, from this examinstion I found no reason to suspect the de ceased came to hie death from other than natural cvjsss, therefore did not deem it necessary to hold an inquest. The deceased was a man about 55 years of age. light corupection, gray hair, and bald bead, weighed about 1G0 lbs, was about 5 feet 8 inches, tall; and I think by birth an Ameri can, tiis oocuputiou was tuat ol teamstsr. I have made inquires regirding his mla'ives, and 1 am un ilile to find any one that kn ever mentioned hie people to, or of bis having rela'm.i iving;he acted very peculiar, he old one of his fellow workman be fore he left here that he thought I e was going crizy; he drove team foi while around Manvel, Calif, bo- fore coming here, and I am told taut t one time be drove stage up to Manse, Nc-vuda.there was a thorough search mul e round camp for him t the time he left, and no trace of him could be found. On the body was found $577.70 n currency, gold coin aud silver The finding of the body by Cbas W. Lund and partner, two strangers and prospectors iu this country, was purely accidental.

Pioch The Coming Camp et the World navels in Absolute Stlenc. It Li rc umrkHhlo to ootieo the elab orate and lavish articles now appear ing throughout the country in tie I v-.rious publications eo .ceming th'- U.uereui mining dibtricta in a vada, and yst not a sound about Piocbe. That many of these articles are truthful and conservative we do not doubt. In fact there must be a spirit of appreciation in every pub lb spirited man to see that the re sources of tbe stute are being so thoroughly and ally promulgated, hut just why the best csmp in tl.e whole eats gory is over looked is a coaumtraui tbecitzuns of this district may well look iute. It is true that for s great many years this section has boon inactive, but there have been many good ami Buffii ient reasons why this condition existed. Depopulation in time of inuclivity, l.ick of transportation aud predjtidice against silver mil ing are ouly a few of tbe many in portant reasons why Pioche is not the In i gent single producer of min eral wealth iu the west. Luck of energy and enterprise, depression iu spirit aud mental aud physical stagnation due to adverse conditions are net, however, the least of tin menaces to progression in the min ing world. Eut conditions have changed. JUiJroad tranxportation is within oar reach, cupitil is flowing liuer ullv into the dnstiut judicious and permanent tievelopiueiit is being prosecuted an 1 the time is ripe snd the fruit spoiling for Piocbe to get into the push. That the camp bus large resources and permanent merit everyone familiar with it from early days to the present time well knows. The geology of the country is perfect, tbe ore occurrences regular, the disirio large and resourceful sua average values exceed that of any mining district knowu to the writer. The camp produced within the short period of teu years more mini rul wealth than fifty per cent of tbe camps will ever produce. The dis trict is comparatively new and un developed, ouly a few mines having reached water level. It is twenty miles in luugth aud has prodme l from oue extreme to the o l.er, mere are many meritorious pros pects throughout Hi entire diairii t which would become ready pr- -ducers under energetic Uevelopuuut and with railroad facilities snd re tluctiou works nriuy would becuu e euorino'is dividend payers. Uut those mines will never yield tl.eir wealth until it is ex ructed by m. n, neither wi I cupiia1 jump over it-eh to get iu exoept that a good seitti ment prevails and public euterprihe induce it. It is up to the people of tliis ttisrrict to get iu ami pull anil ii jhIi and do soiorthiug for the c imp, for it is a mire thing ttie fui I'ncts will never reduoj their ores nor the railroad ruu over them till this epirii is manifest.

That an innocent man has been confined in Sun Qnention, for ti e past five years was the conclusion for the state bord of prison directors when they met an J granted an unconditional parole to Charles H. Parks of naps Calif who was aent up from Solauo cou..iv ;;. 1900, to serve twenty years for tu alleged assult upon a youit girl. Parka had always maintained that he bad absolutely nothing to do with the crime, but it was ouly this week that absolute proof was furnished the prison directors. Tbe proof consists of an affidavit from the girl which exonerates Parks completely, and a oonfession from Daniel Regan, who is now serving a term in the Nevada state prison for murder. Parks' story is a pitiful one. He is now free, not even bound by re strictions, but he is not happy. His young wife divorced immidiately after conviction. His meagre savings sua little homes were swallowed up in fighting the case. Hia brother and aged mother also i i . .. exuausieo vuoir runus in nis case.

No truce of her was touud and the fact that Joe Lai lisen frendly with the girl end was quite au attractive Indian, the suspicion came that Jos had eloped with her. Deputy Sheriff Laird was notified and he ami Mr Isaac proceeded to follow tbe eloped pair, til thoy reached Robert Creek, some 50 miles from the Is'iao ranch, win re they were found in au X ii 1 in it witkiup.
