Entered at the Postoffice at Pioche, Nevada, as second
class matter.
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."
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
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.
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
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. We have the
ore. What we need is that all
shall know what we have as
thoroughly as we know it. Send
the paper broadcast Subscribe
for it, and let it go to that friend
whom you would like to interest
in the camp. Continual drop
ping wears away the stone. He
may not tumble the first issue,
but it will get him after awhile.

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
the time to boost for
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.

For Your Health.
Conquer your moods; don't let your
moods conquer you. People who give
way to moods never amount to much,
umus . tney are never masters oi
themselves. They never know in the
morning wbether they are going to dc

tney are going to be a cheering or a

arouna mem. if they feel like being
good-tempered, they will be; If they
feel like "snapping" at everybody
they will snap.
People who suffer from "moods
should be careful about their habits.
They should be regular about meals,
sleep, exercise and work. The condl

moods, and there is nothing that con
tributes so much to health as abso

An Americanizing Influence.
"If any proof la needed that baseball

among newly-arrived immigrants, Just
keep your ears open when at a rat

national rooting," said a veteran

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.
Even before familiarising themselves
with the national yell they seek true
Americanism by the baseball route,

with the 'Hochs and 'Bravos' of our
embryo citizens."

Future of th Chines.
Blr Robert Hart, director-general ot
Chinese customs, declares that the
Chinese are destined to become a pow
erful nation; but with such an im
mense mass the work must go slow
and by the time they are organized
along modern lines, even If they were
aggressive, which they are not, they
will know how to temper their
strength with wisdom. As to the
"yellow pern," Sir Robert said he
thought that, though the Chinese are
likely to become formidable competi
tors in industrial and trading matters,
they will not cause the world any
special trouble.
