Thompson, who were recommended fi l appointment as members of . the advisory board, but inasmuch as the litter la a member of the board of fire commissioners, the board of coun end of of January, ty commissioners took the view that as a member of both the duties would be conflicting whereupon J., A.

The Record has ascertained throug a letter from an eastern sharehold er that since the organization of the Scott Mines company, the Scott man agement has expended In the Boston & P'oche. and the ether mines men tioned, approximate $112,000; that the treasury of the company at the prfsert fme is empty and that the pay roll " at the Bouse mine for the last month remains unpaid.

The iatter exchanged their stock for Scott Mines stock, but under the provis ions of the escrow agreement, which was deposited with the Rhode Island Hospital Trust company, in the city of Providence, Rhode Island, The , agreement was to have been in full force and effect until sometime last September, when the pool terminated. According to the letter , from the snarenoiaer referred to, Scott i flleged to have pulled his wires in such a manner that he extracted 135, 000 shares of his own stock from the pool and disposed of it.

While I have devoted most of my i J me," said Mr. Scheffel to the Rec ord, "to land, I cannot help staying vith Pioche; because of its enormous tonnage and gradual development of l" properties. Capital is bound to seek investment here and if the Piochite3 are reasonable treat capl tal as it should be treated it is sure to come ia. i "I know from past experiences that he people here are ever ready to rr.eet capital half way. A smelter Is sure to be erected in the near future for the mines are already developed to the . stage which justifies the ex- 1-enditure for that purpose. I certainly congratulate the people of the camp. Large bodies move slow- y.and Pioche is surely a large body. BANK DECLARES DIVIDEND. Directors Take This Action At Meet Ing Held Last Tuesday Evening.
