The young lady came to Pioche, Friday, to take in the Band Concert and will depart for her home in the east some time next week. Mrs Ella Denton, sister-in-law of J. A Denton, of Caliente was in town during the week visiting relatives and friends. Mrs Den ton will leave in a few days for Waterloo, Nebraska, for a visit of two months after which she will return and make her future home in Caliente. Joe Hunter, who was brought up from Caliente last week by the Constable and Dr, Murry, and was tried before County Clerk Goodrich for insanity; be ing placed in jail to await further developments, is no better and will no doubt have to be sent to the asylum.

That date is the anniversity of the lodge and as the best dances of the seasons have been given by that organ ization it will be looked forward to. Every thing that will help to make the affair will be more than pleased. "The mud the past week has been simply fierce. Sunday and Monday our streets were almost cspassable. The stages were all several hours behind time. The Caliente stage was on several occasions 10 and 11 hours making the trip from Caliente to Pioche with a change of horses at Panaca.

The Concert and Ball given by the Pioche Brass Band, on March 16LU, was a pronounced success socially and financialy. In spite of the inclemency of the weather Thompsons Hall was well filled, and the audience demonstrated enthusiatic appreciation of the entire program. The Band numbers, as well as the specialities, including Cornet Duet by Chas. Thompson and Alex Lloyd; Clarinet Duet by Chas. Osborne and Frank Callaway; and Baratone and Trombone Duet by Al Carman and Roy Orr, were executed in a most pleasing manner. - The musical part of the program was concluded by a comic song en titled "Oh What A Difference In The .Morning, by Mr. J. B Wheeler, who was heartly applauded, and for encore gave "DuckfootSue." One of the entertaining features of the program was the Recitation, "The Octroon" by Miss Maud Goodlander who gave an ex cellent interpretation of that pathetic story. A very marked improvement of the Band in the past few months, under the efficient direction of Conductor J. B. Wheeler is observed; and members and leader deserve great credit for the efficiency attained through their diligent efforts. The Concert was the first oppertunity given the public of knowing the real merit of this worthy organization, of which Pioche should feel justly proud. The Concert was concluded with a very pleasing comedy farce "Freezing A Mother-in-law. J.B. Wheeler, handled the leading role, Mr. Watnuff.ahen pecked.husband. in a most satis factory manner, causing much laughter by his docile and sub missive manner. The part of Mrs Watnuff. his strong minded and crafty wife was ably interpreted by Mrs C. A Thompson who protrayed the character of this ruling spirit of the Watnuff family with all that decisive and dictating spirit called for in the part The part of Ferdinand Swift, an adventerous fortune hunter, and nephew of the Watnuff 's; was eaisly taken care of by W. S. McRae. Wm Orr. as the pesistant lover brought out all of the strength of the role in a clear and dipla- matic manner. Miss Maud Goodlander, as Emily Watnuff carried the part in a charming manner. The Farce, throughout was handled in excellent style, each character, having a good under standing of the part. The lines generally were spoken clearly and loud enough that none of the plot was lost to those in the rear end of the room. A hearty laugh was created by Mr. Wheeler and McRae during the freezing process, by introducing some extemporaneous dialogue. The farce contained just enough plot to be interesting in that way, besides giving ample phrases of embarrassing and rediculous positions to keep up the fun. Last but not least was the Ball which was the biggest success in that line given in Pioche for some years. The floor was tx ceptionally good; the music ex cellent and the order of dances was up to date, all of which went to make the patrons have a most enjoyable time. The great improvement in the music for the occasion, was readily observed, the first num bers of which were played by the entire band. The new Brass Band Orchestra deserves special mention for their proficiency and should be encouraged in their efforts, Mr. McGee's excellent work with the drums lends mat erial strength and harmony to the organization" Woo Tom served the dancers with an excellent supper; After which the dancers triped the light fantastic until 5:30 the next morning. Born On Wednesday, March 21st, to the wife of James Cleine, a son. C. L. 110KSEY APPOINTED j At a , special meeting of the Board of County Commissioners called for Monday, March 19th with J. A. Nesbitt and Geo. C. Baldwin, members present, and County Clerk Goodrich, for the purpose of appointing a District Attorney Ex-office School Super intendent a vacancy being caused by the death of Ben Sanders, the name of Chas.

Mr. Horsey will fiil the office he was appointed to with credit to himself and the Connty. OUK .-NEXT U. al . SENATOR. t Attorney-General .las. " G. Sweeney, as chairman of the Democratic State Central Com mittee has issued a call for the committee to meet in Carson on the 21st inst. At this meeting the plans for the approaching campaign will be fully biscussed, and is understood that an aggres' sive program will be formulated. A large number of ampitious politicans who have recently risen to sudden wealth through successful mining operations have their eyes on the United States Senatorship, and it is probable that considerable money will be expended this fall in se curing friendly "hold-overs" in the State Senate. It looks as if the good old times, when the Sharons, the Fairs and some others thought nothing of spend ing a half million for the honor of representing the Sagebrush State in the "Greatest Club in the World." The storm center just now is in Tonopah but it may be shifted to Bullfrog if the ledges "go down." Miner. TEN-. FOOT HOLE In answer to an inquiry as to what constitutes a legal ten-foot hole for assessment work, it iray be stated that on this point the law is very clear. Tne impression that a ten-foot hole put down at any point is, as a matter Of fact, wrong. The theory of the goverment in giv ing its mineral domain to lo cators of mining claims is to develop its mineral resources. In exchange and as a reward for the work of opening mineral land the government will give title, after the performance of $500 worth of work, if the applicant can show that mineral has been exposed. The government requires that the assessments hole shall be sunk on a vein and that ore must be exposed and in place. On this point the law is very ex plicit A ten-loot hole sunk m soft ground not showing the vein, in order to save expense, is not legal, and it is open to ad verse. This is a case that has been passed upon so often as not to leave any doubt in the minds of the locators, but it is a matter of wonder that they should adopt any other course. . . Sinking an assessment hole in discriminately m the county rock does not constitute a valid location.. The ten-foot hole must be sunk on the vein, and it must show mineral in place. Ores and Metals. The Pioche Dramatic Company gave a hard Time dance Thursday evening:. Miss Goodlander and Mr. John Deck were awarded the prizes for being the best hard time make up; the former prize being a watch chain and the latter a box of cigars. E. P. Gordon, departed this morning with two men and a load of supplies for the rich Btrike recently made by Whipple and sold to A. W. Scott & Company. Mr. Gordon intends to do considerable developing work on one of his claims near that strike and is the first one to establish a "camp" in that district. MEXICAN MINING LAW.i ; It would seem as if the mining j time it would take him to find laws of the United States werei0ut if the "t-ar-Tceep" had enacted for the purpose of get-j ting men into trouble who are in any way interested in the min ing industry. That instead of protecting the individual who complies with them they open the way for endless litigation. That the man who makes a min ing location and who fills all of the requirements of the law must def end his rights instead of the government defending them for him, and that a man has no right and title under the law, which he ha3 fully complied with that ar.y individual, any black mailer and any sharper will rec ognize or respect. In fact, it would seem that he laws pretain ing to mining, in the United Stat es, are 'a jumble oi' meaningless phrases, traps for the unwary, induceoiont f or unscrupulous acts and mi impediment in the, way of legitimate and successful mining. In the matter "of its mining laws the United Statc-3 might well copy the code of Mexico, or of Canada. In the former coun try the man who wishes to en gage in mining obtains a permit from the proper officials, and when he selects the grounds he desires to operate he notifies the judge. The ground is surveyed, the regulation fees are paid, and as long as the man pays the annual tax the ground is his. He is protected in his rights and no man can take it away from him and and no one can give him trouble ' because of a claim of possessing extra-lateral rights, as vertical lines govern and all that is within the boundary lines of his claim or group of claims is his. If a claimowncr has trouble with a jumper he appeals to the judge and the jumper is im mediately arrested and jailed. If any altercation arises the mat ter i3 adjudicated at once by a commission of three, one selected by each of the contestants and one by the judge. American citizens, who are engaged in mining operations in in the lands of the Montezumas, speak most favorably of the sim plicity, the justice and the pro tsction afforded by the mining laws of Mexico;of the encourage ment and inducements given and extended,'to f orneigers to engage in mining in Mexico, and of the speedy arraignment and punish ment of those who violate the laws in the least decree: the prosecution being carried on by the government upon complaint of those harrassed by any who may infringe upon their rights, Were such laws as those in force in Mexico applied to the United States, litigation in min ing affairs would almost entirely cease. The occupation of the claim jumper would be gone; the fakir would have to leave the country, and there would be no more clouding of titles by ir responsible parties whose only object is blackmail. At Clifton and Morenci, Arr zona, The mining Review is in formed, those engaged in mining nave adopted, Dy mutual agree ment the Mexican law as far as it extends to extra-lateral rights, and as a result there is but little mining litigation in these two camps. it aoes seem as it some changes should soon be made in the ridiculous and unjust mining laws of the United States. They are as ' senseless as they are a menace to mining industry, and should be repealed and the laws of a more "unenlightened" country adopted to supercede them.-Salt Lake Mining Re view. - Miss Maggie Mathews, was a mong those who attended the Band Concert from Panaca, last Friday. Mis5 Grace Gentry, who has been visiting with Miss Lizzie Goodrich for the past three weeks, returned to her home in Panaca, Wednesday. James Lemoine, Public Ad ministrator, was up from Caliente Monday, attending to the estate of Ben. Sanders and others matters. The "lion" has finally let the "lamb" in Pioche. The 21st of this month the first day of that dear old Spring reminds one of a pleasant summer day. Forget the mud. iitt il il "if i ntr. Htl neck like a giraffe, what a long "switched bottles on him.
