THE TOCHE RECORD DECEMBER, 28. 103 THE PIOCHB UKCORD Issued Every Saturday LEWIS H. SEASON nboerivtioa. Ob Tw. by Mail 5" 8u Mooitx. br Mail Entered at the Postoffice at Pioche, Nevada, as second class matter. VALEDICTORY. With this issue of the Record Mr. Lewis H. Beason assumes active control. Mr. Beason has purchased the plant and has promised a live up-to-date paper to the readers of the Record. That h will be able to fulfill this promise in every particular is without question. Mr. Beason has had a large experience on the leading" dailies of the inter mountain country, having worked as mining editor on many. This training especially fits him for the work he has undertaken, and he has a large field before him in which to apply this knowledge. We can assure the readers of the Record a paper that will at all times exploit the resources of this promising district in an in telligent and readable form. The retiring publishers, Messrs. Orr and Goodrich, take this occa sion to bid farewell to our for mer patrons. We have no com plaint to register as to the sup port which has been tendered us. True, we have worked under certain disadvantages, publishing the paper when con ditions were such that other em ployment was made necessary to insure an existence. Times have changed, however; this camp needs a live paper. To publish this all the energy and skill of the publisher must be employed. Recognizing this we were eager, as well as pleased, to turn over the task to a man such as Mr. Beason, so we bid farewell to our friends, asking a con tinuence of their liberal patronage to the new proprietor, and an increase of that patronage in proportion to the greater and better paper that will be published. With a kindly feeling to all, knowing that the step we take is for a Greater Pioche. and wish ing one and all the compliments of the season, we "bid adieu." BY WAY OF INTRODUCTION In U king up the work of di recting the destinies of the Pioche Record I am nundf-j1. that the task involves many re sponsibilities. It is not always an easy matter for one to give up for a time old associates and friends; to break up a comforta ble home, surrounded with all the conveniences which city life affords; to go out into a strange place, there to face new condi tions and form new acquaint ances. Nevertheless, there was an inducement to come to Pioche. For the impression gained while here for the first time last No vember, convinced me that this region has great possibilities for the future; doubtless greater opportunities than some right here in Pioche realize. It is because I have faith in the future of Pi oche and districts surrounding it that the Record plant was pur chased, and that I decided to move my family here to remain permanently. It will be the policy of this paper to boost week in and week out for Pioche, its mines and every other interest affecting its welfare. No exaggeration will knowingly be permitted to enter its columns; for the plain truth about this and the contiguous camps is all that is necessary to gain the confidence of the in vestor and the respect of the public at large. It is my ambi tion to make the Pioche Record one of the best, if not the best, newspaper in Nevada; but if success is achieved or not, will depend largely upon the loyalty and the support that is received from the business men of Pioche and the citizens of Lincoln coun ty in general Now let us all put our shoulders to the wheel and make a Greater Pioche. The Record is ready to do its part As conditions warrant, the Record will be improved. This issue is not as near perfec tion as I had hoped it would be; but it will be better. LEWIS H. BEASON. Editor S2- 1.40 VOICE OF THE RECORD IS HEARD. The editorial in our issue of the 5th inst, entitled "Los An gele3 and the Mining Industry,' aroused a great deal of interest in that city. The point brought out in the editorial was that Pi oche was now exciting wide spread attention in the mining world; that people were coming in from all directions "eager to get some of it while it is to be had for a reasonable price," but that so far none had been an nounced from Los Angeles. The first return to come to our attention was an editorial m the American Mining Review, the able mining weekly of that city. edited by Sidney Norman, under the caption "As Others See Us," Mr. Norman said, "James W. Abbott, the well-known mining engineer, whose experience has taken him to all mining camps of prominence in the country, and who now makes his headquarters at Pioche, in the Pioche Record last week tells some pertinent truths about Los Angeles. It would be well if every man in terested in the future of the city could read them. Mr. Abbott made the most interesting ad dress on mining before the City Club last spring an address that will live for a long time as the most scholarly ever delivered on the subject in thi3 subject in this city." Mr. Norman then re produced most of the editorial. The Sunday issue of the Los Angeles Times, dated December 13th, contains an editorial de voted to some questions which Mr. Abbott has brought out in his writings, which it says "con tain food for study." We quote a few lines from the editorial. lhat old rioche is as rich a camp today as ever is conceded, and it. rase record Is wen imowm- While we are on the subject, too, it is well to call attention to an other subject, viz., the greater interest that Salt Lake miners are taking in Pioche and vicinity as compared with Angelinos, W.r. Abbott has written that the i ruv.p is thronged with men from the Mormon capital for weeks, and not one visitor from Los Angeles." Our Edward Thomarson, who has a large acquaintance,, in Los Angeles, had the article reprint ed on his own letter heads and sent out nearly a hundred of them to bankers, brokers and men of large affairs in all lines in that city. It seemed to hit them right on their most sensi tive nerve. The letters of com ment wnicn came bacK varied from three pages to three lines. From J. M. Elliott, president of the First National Bank, came a long, well digested letter, anal yzing the situation and speaking hopefully regarding the attitude of Los Angelss towards mines. One of the largest business houses in the city stated that they had been long doing mis sionary work along the line of the editorial, and that they were exceedingly glad of the opportu mty to refer it to their Chamber of Mines. J. F. Sartori presi dent of the Security Savings Bank,' the heaviest bank in that city, wrote, "I have carefully read the editorial and am quite m accord with with everything contained therein." Another bank president wrote, "The edi toriai is wen written, rich in matter, and cannot fail to help our mining interests in this city, Several others expressed kthe same sentiment, me manager of one of the largest wholesale houses in the city wrote, "I would suggest that papers like the Pioche Record, which appear to be wide awake, be called upon to communicate with Los Ange les wholesalers, giving them printed information regarding their .particular section of the country, sending them copies of the paper, etc" This last reply we commend to the thoughtful attention of our readers in Pioche. The Record is here to spread the glad tidings about this wonderful camp to all cities and all people. Its power for good will depend upon the co-operation it receives from its readers. If every man whose welfare is in any way concerned with the prosperity of this camp and vicinity will get into the har ness and pull with the Record the combined power thus exerted will be irresistible.

If you don't believe it, try it Pioche boasts a "dead-man's row," Bays the American Mining Review of Los Angeles, where seventy' pioneers sleep with their boots on. There are seventy thousand live people in Los An geles, all in a row, and all with their boots on, who are dead to the self-evident fact hat mining has contributed a large share to the city's present commercial po sition. If all citizens of Pioche will put their shoulders to the wheel thi3 camp is going to grow. Now is Pioche. the time to boost for I I WHAT OUR FRIENDS SAY B I J j-iewis n. reason, lor many years mining editor of the News" has tendered hi3 resig nation and within a few days will leave this city for Pioche, Nev., where he assumes control of the Pioche Record. Mr. Bea son looks upon Pioche as a camp full of promise and through the columns of the Pioche Record he intends to tell all the world about the Nevada bonanza camp. Mr. Beason visited Pioche a few weeks ago for an ocular survey of the place. What he had heard he believed before he went the nrtd when he came back he was sure that the truth was only half told about the future of the camp, as to the Kecord, it is equipped with a modern plant for a newspaper of its size. Its press is run by power furnished in its own plant. It occupies a building recently built for the purpose and is fully equipped for job work m addition to its news plant Pioche, too, is the county seat of Lincoln county, the longest county in the United States, running all the way down to Las Vegas, which is now seeking a division of the county with itself as the county seat Mr. Beason leaves the "News' witn tne oest wishes ot the en tire force, and the "News' staff, confident that in his new field, he will meet with the suc cess in which his experience entitles him, extends to him a iareweu greeting in which is mingled congratulations and re gret Deseret News. u n. ueason, tor many years mining editor of the Deseret News, will leave the last of the week for Pioche, where he wil' assume the active management of the Pioche Record, which Mr. Beason now cowns. He has score, and then some, of friends in Utah who witness his removal from the local field with keen re gret but who follow him to his new location and duties with best wishes and hopes for many prosperous years in the camp with tremendous tonnage of ores, There is every argument to ad' vance that Mr. Beason will "rol up a wad sufficiently compre hensive to choke the proverbial cow at Pioche, and when he does, it is an even bet he will come back to Zion to settle down. -Salt Lake Tribune. Lewis H. Beason, the well known newspaper man and min ing writer, who has handled the mining department of the Des eret News for several years past has purchased the Pioche Record. He will leave for the camp to night to take charge of that pub lication and make of it what the importance of that rich mineral bearing region now demands an up-to-date and entertaining exponent of the camp' wonder ful resources. Mr. Eeason re cently spent some time in the districts surrounding Pioche, gathering material for the holi day edition of the News, and it wa3 while engaged in that work that he became so thoroughly imbued with the exceptional merits of the country. Before leaving he learned that there was a chance to secure the paper that has experienced a rather unimportant career since the boom times of the 70's, and he took it Business men, min ing operators and everybody in the diggins that he has been i to reach during the few weeks that he has been measur ing up the possibilities of success have given him every encourage ment to go ahead and make a ive paper of the Record. Few people without a person al knowledge of the mines and the mining districts surrounding Pioche," said Mr. Beason yes terday, "have the least concep tion of what the country contains and what the chances are for profitable investment down there. I am going to make it my business to enlighten them. n the early days Pioche mines added many millions to the im perishable wealth of this country, but for all that the old school of miners and mine operators never dreamed that the camp would be what it is today, much less what it will be in a few years from now. Pioche is anything but i i wnat is termed a one, two or three mine camp. In my judg ment the districts tributary to the town of Pioche will boast dozens ot producing, earning mines within a year or two more and it is just as certain as any thing can be that great smelting ing and milling plants will be in operation there. I am going to do what I can to let the world know about that country." Salt Lake Herald. Lewis H. Beason, who for sev eral years has been mining ed itor of the Deseret News, has resigned his position with that newspaper to take charge of the Pioche Record, which he has purchased. Mr. Beason has con fidence in Pioche making a great mininir camp and hia business venture is the result He will, without doubt, give the camp a good newspaper. Inter Mount ain Republican. Lewis H. Beason has reached Pioche and entered his duties as editor in chief of the Record. This is the only paper published in that mining district, and by reason oi Mr. reason s long ex perience in both newspaper and mining business, he should be a valuable addition to that section In point of service Mr. Beason is one of the oldest mining writ ers in Utah. He has been con nected with several of the daily papers in this city for a number of years, and has been the local correspondent for some of the largest financial papers of the country. He has made a person al inspection of all of the big mines of Utah, and in going into Nevada he will have the advant age of a valuable fund of infor mation which should place the Record at the head of mining papers in the sagebrush country.

"Foreign visitors of aristocrat ic tendencies decry our national game, but there is no doubt that It Is one of the flrst of American institutions to appeal to the average new-comer.
