Smelting Company of Salt Lake for a good sum. T. J. Osborne returned from Salt Lake Thursday evening coming from Caliente by private conveyance. Now that warm weather has set in you should cleanup your back yards and thus save sick ness caused by the decayed rubbish. General Manager A. F. Schneider of the Nevada-Utah M. & S. Corporation came in from Salt Lake Sunday and has been busy since his arrival look ing after the interest of the Company and directing the work. With the advent of so many freight teams, Messrs Christian and Lloyd of Bristol are wearing their good natured smile once more, as they are beginning to ship their large lot of ore they have out We have sunshine and good weather for the past ten days, and in consequence nearly all of the local freight that has been piling up, at Modena, for our .merchants here, came in this week, and kept them on the jump looking after it and storing it away in their warehouses and stores. The Nevada-Utah this week has been in receipt of large con signments, Jof lumber and machinery, and with the con tinurtionof good weather, no delay should occur in the receipt of the large amount of freight consigned to them and now at Modena awaiting shipment The Record received during the week, a lot of new envelopes and some fine letter stationerry, and the rest of . the new type ordered some time ago, and which was delayed on account of the bad weather and roads. We are now prepared to do all kinds of printing . and at reasonable rates. Give us a call. Bishop Bo3., who are boring for water for the Nevada Utah Co. at the smelter have had hard luck, when down about 60 feet the small pipe inside of the large one, broke, and it was impossiple to pull out the large pipe, so they had to start in a new place and lost about 40 ft of pipe. They are making good headway and look forward to better luck where they are now boring. ' The Justice's Court was taken up Tuesday with two cases of vagrancy, one against J.! Burke, who plead guilty, and sentence was suspended until 10 o'clock Wednesday, by which time he took time before the forelock and bid adieu to the town; Jerry Harrington, was given 30 days at hard labor. Justice Orr certainly under stands his position and the evil doers and others that run count er of our laws, will want to give his office a'wide berth. Mr. A. W. Scott returned from Los Angeles Monday after an absence of about three weeks. He went to Los Angeles on the - last train previous to the wash outs, and came back on the first train to come through from Los Angeles. He reports the dam age done to the railroad company very great and although trains; are running, it will be some time' yet before the schedule can be made, as great care is being exercised in running through the wash and over that part of the rc&d that has been rebuilt OrvU King. Mr Orvis Ring, State Superin tendent of Public Instruction came in Wednesday evening from the South, on his annual tour of visiting the Schools of the several counties and 'districts. He has visited nearly all the schools of the county, having come from Carson City, by way of Los Angeles, and Las Vegas. He was fortunate enough to ar rive at Las Vegas while the Salt Lake Route was out of commis sion, and had the pleasure of en joying the balmy climate of that thriving burg for the period of seven days. He had heard much of Meadow Valley Wash, and never could fathom out its sign ificance, but since his trip up the Wash, and noting the damage done to the railroad, under stands it now. Superintendent Ring is an affable gentleman and if any one can -lay claim to being a Nevadan, he can, for he has lived in the State for about 46 years. Bell Telephone Company to Ex tend lt Line to Pioche this Year and to Las Vegan Next. From reliable information we have it that at a recent meeting of the Directors of the Bell Tele Dhone Company. $250,000 was appropriated to be expended in Lincoln. White Pine, Eureka and Elko Counties, in this State, and that their line was to be extendad from Newhouse, in Utah, to Pioche, before the year was out and to Las Vsgas next year. This is indeed welcome news, it will give to us many advant ages not now possessed, and with the railroad extended from Caliente to here, which will be completed within the next three months, we can linger with the fond hope that the "temporary county seat" has some show of still remaining the "permanent county seat" NEN ADA UTAH. The Nevada-Utah Company are doing good work right along. A visit to the Machine shops shows a scene of activity, run ning at full blast and the Car penter shop busy, the carpenters framing up timbers for the No. 5 and No 1 shafts; timbermen are putting in timbers, and the No 1 is timbered about 100 feet and No 5 about 140. The rail road is doing its share, hauling up lumber from the smelter where it is delivered by team that comes from Modena, and makes its regular trips to Royal City. A most commodious bunk house has been erected, capable of housing 50 men at the Day mine, the timbers for the ore bins are all framed, and the tramway will soon be erected. . Mr. A. W. Scott fitted out a wagon load with provisions and with five men went out to Fair view district to the claim which he purchased for $10,000 some three weeks ago, and will com mence active development work. This is , business and with the showing already made on the claim it can not help but show up in good values as work pro gresses. Mr. Scott is deserving of all the good fortune that should befall any one that has the faith he has in this mining sectidni' ' Mr..E..L. Godbe assisted by Mr." Bently have been sampling the properties of the Bristol Copper Mg. Company at Bristol. We understand that Mr. Godbe has an option on the majority of the stock of the company. Five business houses on Main Street are lighted by Standard Gas Lamps, each house having its own generator A. S. Thomp son Co., are agents for these splendid lights which are a close rival to electricity. Last Monday being payday for thejNevada-Utah. M. 4 S.

The Gazette credits Reno with 20 births and 17 deaths daring March. The good old summer time has at last arrived A a Independent Smelter. The Oregon Short line Rail road Company has just started a large grading outfit to work on the preliminary construction work of a new spur leading to the site of the new $1,000,000 smelting plant that will be erected by the Utah Smelting Company, seven miles north of Ogden, Utah. When this track ha3 been completed, the material necessary for the building of the smelter will be shipped in and the construction work of the plant will be commenced. It i3 expected that the same will be completed and be ready for busi ness within the next six months. ,Thi3 plant will be the first in dependent smelting concern to enter the field since the trust gained control of all the smelt ing iateresta of the country, therefore it is looked upon as an important move and one that is destined to make the city of Og den a prominent smeltering paint This can be better understood when it is remembsred that about two months ago Charles M. Schwab, the steel magnate, who is largely interested in mining properties of the west, under a threat to start an independent smelter on the coast, forced the trust to grant hln a reduction of $5 per ton on all his ores, Mr. Schwab went so far as to lease an old abandoned smelting plant near San Francisco, but when he secured the reduction mentioned he abandoned the idea of operat ing it The actnal operation of an independent concern, it would seem, must necessarily bring about some effect that would be favorable to the producers. The Utah Smelting Company is backed by a strong combina tion of capitalists, its president being David Eicles of Ojdsn, who i3 widely known as a man of sterling business integrity and who was never known to fail in any enterprise with which he be came identified. MINING DECISION. Recently there was rendered in the district court at Boulder, Colo., an important decision in the matter of relocation of min ing claims. ' It is the first case of the kind in that state, and has an important bearing on min ing litigation. The court held that locators of mining claims who have failed to do the annual assessment work prescribed by law in order to hold title to the same have the right to relocate, the same as any other party who may jump the claims after the first location becomes void by reason of failure to perform the necessary work. The court held that the relocation would hold good at law, providing it was made before the locatoon by other parties after the first loca tion had become void. This it seems is more than just it does not deprive anyone from ocating; the locator must, of course, exercise due diligence and locate prior to relocation on' the part of the first claimant. Where districts are settling up rapidly, and the ground assumes value of an increasing character, no man is likely to allow his work to fail if so, he T takes the chances of loosing his property, for, while he may have the right to, relocate, his negligence in. the first instance will likely be re peatedjn the second, and he will forfeit his, rights m one case just as he doe3 in the other. Ores and Metals. ,. .: A land deal involving in the neighborhood of $100,000 took place in Reno a few, days ago when the Ward Land and Live stock Company transferred its holdings in Nevada to the Ger- lack Land and Livestock Com pany, of Stockton. An Indiana physician called for his sweetheart s number on the telephone, put a nickle in the slot when he blew out his brains How consoling to her must be the reflection that the last nickle he spent on earth was for her.
