The Hall was crowded, and most pleasantly: everyone there seemed to be in good humor and if any one failed to enjoy themselves, it certainly was not the fault of any of the members of the order, for they were ever alert to see that every one there received all the danc ing they wished.

Jones, an inmate of the Insane Asylum, at Reno, for the past eight years, died there last week Saturday. The Transvaal Miner , is the name of a new paper published at Beatty, Nye county.

The plant wi! handle 1,250 tons of ore dailey, A heavy windstorm visited us the early part of the week. THE NEW STRIKE. A Correspondent Jof the Record Visits the New Comp and Grows Nervous Because the Public do Not Realize its Great Re sources. A representative of the Record visited the new camp near Bailey Springs yesterday where considerably activity pre vails of late. Particularly speak ing this is the district in which the rich strike heretofore men tioned in this paper was made by J .L, Whipple some months ago. There are ;flve raon working upon the group of' five claims performing location work pre paratory to establishing a per manent camp, and the encour agement recently met with is far in excess of expectations. At the point of. original discovery on the Silver King claim especi ally is this true. The shaft has reached a depth of perhaps seven feet and the values in that dis tance is believed by those familiar with the character of the ore to have increased fully fifty per cent, while the pay streak four feet wide has every appearance of widening. On the surface no mineral other than chloride of silver could be detected in the rock, but in the bottom of the shaft now sulphide of silver i3 appear ing in a very hne gram gelena specimens of which will run up into the thousands of ounces. South of the original discotery another strike has been made which shows greater values than found on the surface in the former place, .the ore being of the same character. North of and on the belt some 900 . feet . distance still another strike has been made, which in appearance seems just as im portant as any of the others. This is about all the prospect ing which has been done in the entire district and the extent : of high values consequently can only be contemplated. The district, which at present has no name, appears to be about two miles in width and six miles in length in a series of rol ling hills and is crossed in n north and south and east and west dir ection by large and in some in instahces enormously large quartz ledges cropping boldly above the surrounding. These ledges, excepting the one mentioned above seems never to . have been prospected and possibly no part of them ever assayed. The rock is ex. ceedingly hard and of a peculiar dark or black and unattractive color, which perhaps accounts for the district having been overl ooked up to this date. The formation is bedded Cam brian qurtzite slightly tuted to the south and west by an enormous granite belt on the north for a distance of six mile? thus marking distinctly the min era! district. In the opinion of the writer every indication is fa vorable to a permanent camp and the values being uncoved almost at a stroke are sensational in the extreme. Little attention has been given thejiew camp by the ocal. public until recently and only a few prospecting outfits are as yet there. Should these discoveries have occurred anywhere else on the globe except, in the vscinity of Pioche resident inhabitants would be breaking their necks to get foothold there. It is a pitty some of them are not doing this. Public Holiday of One Week In Nevada. Whereas, a great calamity has befallen our sister state of Cali fornia, causing desolation, suf fering, distress and death, and resulting in the paralysis business throughout that state And,- whereas, byproclamatio of the governor of said state of California, public holidays have been declared all over said state; And,' whereas, the business and social interests- of the state of California and the state Nevada have been so inter- mingled for the past fifty years that the material interests of the two states are practically identical; And, whereas, the citizens of Nevada have relatives and friends dead and missing, in the distress ed districts; Now, therefore, in order to give our citizens an opportunity to seek their missing and bury their dead, and in order to give an opportunity to make provision for the desitute, and out of re spect for the proclamation of the governor of the state of Cali fornia, and believing that a temporary suspension of business for the period of six days in this state will tend to alleviate and aid the business interests of the state of California, pending the re-establishmcr.t of r.ew business and fnimcial headqaarters, particularly in and for the strick en city of San Francisco, which is th-e distributing center of the Pacific Coast; " .. , , Now, therefore, I, Lemuel Aller, Lieutenant and Acting Govtrnor-f the State of Nevada do hereby officially proclaim and appoint April 23 to April 28 in clusive, A. D.r 1906, as public holidays and I heartily . recom mend that all business belaid aside, that the financial institu tions be . closed, and that all citizens of this state devote the time to relieving and ameliorat ing the conditions of our neigh bors in distress. In witness t i.ereof, I have this day set my hand and affixed the great sc 1 of the state of Nevada, the 23d day of April, A. D. 1906. Lemuel Allen, Lieutenant and Acting Governor. Attest: W. G. Douglass, Secret ary of State. By John W. Legate, Deputy. Caliente Croppings. Mrs Hans Oleson, who has been quite ill, is much improved Ernest Keat with several others are quite busy gathering horses to be sold. ... Hy Rice one of our popular business men, has been in Salt ake City the past week- John Frei who has beeri in Los Angeles the past winter, was seen on our streets during the week. The farmers around are quite busy getting ready to farm what and they have left since the flood. 1 Pat Ryan left for Los Angele3 recently, where he goes to re ceive medical aid. F. R. McNamee went to Salt Lake City Thursday, on business connected with the bank to be started here shortly. The stores here are receiving new supplies daily and any one wishing to buy can make a very good selection. All the bridges on the wagon roads, which were washed away during the recent floods, have been replaced, making it much easier to get in and out of town. Quite an enjoyable affair took place in Warrens Hall, Saturday evening, being a suprise party on Mr. & Mrs Lee Bailey who eaves soon for San Francisco. There must be ; a great at traction at las Vegas . ior our popular; Post Master, as it generally takes him about two weeks, to make a trip there . and back. 1 Mrs Lewis Wertheimer of De- Lamer, passed through our burg during the week for San Fran cisco, where she has .relatives who she fears have suffered in the recent disaster there. From all appearences one o: our bacheler Doctors, i3 thinking quite seriously, of changing hi3 position of single blessedness, The trains are begimng to ar rived more regularly, and before long will be running on shedule time. ' During the week one of the men employed on a section gang, south of here, had the misfortune falling, the hand car running over him and breaking one his legs in four places. John 4 Phil Smith accompanied by J. Frost, came in Monday, from there claims in South-eastern mining district. They will of (take new supplies and return in afewdaya. Ben Banks one of the employes j at the Company store house, had the misfortune of bruising his arm quite severely, which will cause him to be idle for some little time. Word was received here Mon day of the death of Jack Mc Cartney at Ely. His brothers Huey and Tom accompained by his nephew Geo. Comiely leiTt immeJiatly, to have his renni is shipped home to hte mother in Pennsylvania. Sowing Dollars in Nevada. While many fortunes are being made in Nevada, along the lines of the mining industry, by men who have but little to invest and who are possessed of but little capital outside of a goodly re serve of push, energy and good judgment, the fact still remains that the greatest measure of suc cess being meted out to those who are making heavy invest ment in mining in this state, and who are putting in many thousands with the expectation of eventually taking out an equal number of millions. In reality, it is the men who are "sowing dollars" who will soon fake rank as mining kings in the "Battle Born" state. ' There are those who are amazed at the seemingly reckless manner with which"big men" a d noted financiers are spend ing monsy in the acquisition, development and equipment of Nevada mining properties but, this seeming lavish expenditure is backed by good judgement, a knowledge of actual conditions and an almost certainty of result Therefore, when leading capital ists and noted mining men of means begin sowing dollars in Nevada or any other of the nu merous mining camps of the west, people who are wisa will get in and follow their lead. There is hardly a mining man in Utah and Nevada who would not willingly follow the lead of Samual Newhouse when he be gins to sow his dollars, and his advent into the campus of Bull frog and Ely, Nevada, means that his staff of experts and engineers, after a careful and exhaustive examination of these camps, have recommended them to their principal as sure fields for safe and profitable Invest ment, and this is why Mr, New- house has acquired valuable and promising property in the Montgomery Mountain, at Bull frog, and the Highland group at Ely. Charles Schwab, another magnate who is "sowing dollars,, in Nevada, took no chances when he purchased the Mont gomery-Shoshone, at Bullfrog, for five millions, and the dollars he has been sowing in this camp he reckons as just so much seed sown in fertile ground, and he expects a harvest that will be at east ten-fold. No one considers that he is throwing his dollars away, and yet his millions are making things lively in south western Nevada. liates, the steel and iron magnate, who is now sowing his dollars in the camp of Good Springs, in Lincoln county, Nevada, expects that in the reaping, when the harveat time arrives, every dollar will come back to him accompained by. , j dozen1 others, and that his min mg investments and enterprises will double his millions, which, if confined in strong boxes and in iron safes, would bring him no increase. It is the sama way witn Daniel Guggenheim, who i3 now so heavily interested in the Nevada Consolidated, at Ely, whose stock is so steadily increasing in value; whose shares a few weeks ago were quoted at $11 a share, and which are now near the $13 mark, while it is believed that in the near future they will be in ready demand at from $40 to $45 What has been done once in Nevada can be done again, and records can be duplicated. The new bonanza camps' of Nevada are top-notcher, but it must be remembered that the sage brush state" has had its Corn- stock, its Eureka, and other wonder camps whose records it will be hard to eclipse; and yet, before the great mines of these camps were made so wonder- f j!ly pro l vrJ i." ml otut rt-ntt' sow i 2 i -.-yy could :n!.T! cv.'H'i--:; "-."a tlieir d'iiU: i '-i expj:t xx : ci i i ;ie way of proilta a i iiv; jsends.
