Lem Allen, has issued a proclama tion naming Monday, Sept 4th, as Labor Day. A force of men went to tho C'oppr r iiiug mine at Stampede to do the annual assessment work on that mine. Assessor John Roeder has just returned from Las Vegas, where he was forced through uiisrepeutation to re-asses certain improvements in tliHt once booming but uncertain town. Our vuriluut County Attorney nppoaled to the Attturuey-Geuerul of Nevada in language so strong embracing valuation ao fabulous that he induced an opinion by which he practically forced Mr. Roeder to re-assess the town. These are some of the facts which Mr. Roeder run against. In his officiuus address to the Assessor the Hon. Beu said: "you are notified tbat of iny own knowledge there are brick yards and luuiber yards at Las Vegas of great value and from which the owners are receiving large profits, not as- e-! : r you," under a threat of pro secution Mr. Roeder, accompanied by Deputy Sawyer made the trip, presumably to assess $100,000 or more worth of property. The brick yard referred to was not wortk as sessing, so wag h ft off the roll, and the lumber yards was a pile of badly assorted ref use aid wna iu the bunds of a receiver. Other property men tioned in his address was found to be worthless and the fact is it is offered for and can not be sold for ten cent on the dollor actual cost Di puty Sheriff Murphy, who is a Ibo license collector at Las Vecsa. stati s that in his collection of licen ses several keepers had to di up nicUes and dimes. Myers Bros. plumbers had to go out and work on the road while Assessor Roeder was there to pay taxis on $250. worth of property. The Ace man was granted 24 hours in order to pny his assignment.

Pioche is no'ed for its peculsr character and it becomes a couidv and farce act to think of them. This bus uo reference to our County At toruey. For iiistuuc? we have our law and order character, who talks Sunday school talk in the presence of children in laijcruuire 80 loud and profuse in eloquence the men walks on in utter shame. Perhaps they do not like to hear mothers names referred to iu public iu this syne pathetio manner. Then there is tin fellow who is coiner to cice all the corporations, the dour, sweet little angels, ana place them, individually each and every one of them, in a Heperate department iu a house of keepiug. Yes, the fellow who is always going to revolutionize the polities of our State and divide the counties in order to hoM more office, lixpel the present hold overs: uunlv the literature of the Cotintv in the language he so eloqoeutly uses on the streets and cause editors and writers to chop wood for ex -rcise: curae h and heaveu and hinnell is uo slouch by any menus.

Swanson, of the Nevada Utah Company and wife departed Tuesday for Los Angeles, Calif. Mr. Swanson has been sick for some time and goes to consult a physioian. One of the most welcome visitors to reach us this week were several showers of rain. They settled the dust and cooled the atmosphere. Pat Christian loaded up with month supply of groceries and went to Bristol where he will jig the ore which has been taken from Bristol Copper Co., mines. Mrs. A. S. Leahigh, who bits been visitiug Dr. and Mrs. J. D Cumphell for the past six weeks, de parted for her home in Ely, Mon day. A seven foot ledge of fine ore is reported to have been encountered in the Gelder mine owuad by Henry VtHland and John Bii.emau The owners will not let nnybody in the mine since the big strike. The mine is situated two milta west of town. TheCalionte Express after bus pending pub'icatiou for a month comes out again with new pbucil pushers. The publishers are G. It. McCoy and Jus Brown. Mr McCoy is a lawyer of Caliente and with him on the staff the Culiente Express will surely thrive, and Col James Brown nuother wide awake man, the Express will be second to no paper in the State. The Caliente Express has the fol lowing to say about the awarding of me lummy printing by the Couutv Loiniu'8-ioiit-rs. At the last meeting of the countv commissioners in August, without warrant of law, they cave to the .Las Vegas Age thi contract for the county priutiug, both as to legal notices and wb work. It seems to us that the commissioners should have looked into the statutes before letting this contract, and also learn ed to whom the ooulract was (riven Ihe "Las Vecas Aire." while nur- porting to be the property of one C. rt. xMickiiu, is, as we are lead to be lieve, in f ict, the property of the American Typo Founder company. one or ttie most grasping corpora tiona now doing business in the United States. The statutes provide that proper recompense be given to papers of the state for doing state and county printing, while Mr Nichlin for the "Age" put in a bid at "scab" prices and at a figure against which no paper, doing a leg itimate bus'miss, could compete, unless backid by a powerful cor poration which hud some ulterior scheme behind it. What was the scheme of the American Type Founder company? If we indge from its past record which is the best criterion, their ob ject for encroaching on this field is to drive out nil papers of the coun' v or else compel the newspaper men to purchase their cheap plants at an extortionate hgure. Mr. Nieklin for years past has been tho aervile tool of this great corporalion. Everyone who ia in favor of a square deal to the in dependent uewspaper man should use their most powerful influence gainst this move as regards the county pnntiug. The Salt Lake Herald ears: From the properties with which the Ne vada Uteh Con. some time a"o opened up it couuters to the invest ors of the Eist the Imperial and Montreal of Be v.r county, tin Manhattau of Lincoln County, Ne vada, have beeu eliminated.
