William Lloyd Talks ; About Home Run Copper! . . 1 Willaiu Lloyd lift for Salt Lake last Monday and tbe following in-1 terview with him is noticed In the Deseret News: "Supt. Whali y of the HomeUun Cop per company in the Bristol district near Pioehe is getting out a carload of copper ore that Is of high grade, says William Lloyd of Pioehe-, who is in the city on business. He de clares that it was the intention to have, started Rending ore down to the station before this, hut that it was decided to get a ",t,-toi car of ore ready -before, starting It to market. Already Sup t Wha.ey has a little over 25 tons of ore in the bins that will average 17.1 ounces Ui silver and 1 l.ti -pir cent eoppir. Samples of ore taken nut of the property show 28.6 ounces in si' ver and 23.40 per cent copper. The car of ore should lying tlio com pany about $2,000 in profit. "All the ore that has thus far bcn taken out conies from shallow workings, being extracted . t a depth qf 41) feet iu the shal . Sup't Whalcy is working with a small force but Intends to start work on the 90 foot, or bottom, level of the sliaft, and run a drift out to get under the ore body. "Mr. Lloyd be'.ieves that the prop erty will develop a large r.ro body as It Is along the strike of the same vein thnt he opened on a lease in the ISristol Consolidat ed ground some years ago. Out of the lease Mr. Lloyd In three mouths tcok out IS0.00Q. "In the Virginia-Louise ground to tho southwest of the Prince a doub le compartment shaft is now down u little over 100 feet, lu this shaft the company has already encountered ore. Although it is not expected that the Prince ore zone will be encountered for about .10 feet more, the shnft has a splendid showing. " Horsey a Candidate Heverla candidates have -bene men tioned for tho office of state sen ator from Lincoln county all dem ocrats. As yet, no republicans have been announced; but of all the names thus far brought to the front, the Record Is Inclined to the be lief that Chas. Lee Horsey can do this county tbe most good when the legislature meets at Carson. Mr. Mersey is fair minded, con scientious and conservative, nnd In every way qualified to fill the trust which would be imposed upon him in the upper house should he bo tho choice of a majority of the voters of this county. While we disagree with him politically; the man who can do Lincoln county the greatest amount of benefit at Car son, whether he be a democrat or a republican, is what the people- of this county want. Thnt will be the stand taken by this paper dur ing the coming campaign Insofar as local politics are concerned. I'nless the republicans can show a man bet ter qualified than he; Mr. Horsey would be our choice. T. WORTH BOWEN TO GO TO GOLD HUNTER T.

We leave something of our hearts iu every fluce where Joy or sorrow comes to us. The day of suffering Is a short day. tiut the day of re:nunerut!ou is an eVerlastlng one. There are people who have storms, lint there are very few who know how to put rainbows over tlieni. Life Is but a batidlireadth. Kaoh year Is not so inn. Ii us the bend that the lieuuiy wears about her ntvk. There are mote smiles In the universe tliiiu tears, more rest ilrm trouble nnd more love than hatred. Taking the average of men's Ihes, they suller more from things that never happen than froui tilings that do happen. We are never ripe till we have iieca made so by suffering. We belong to those fruits which must lie touched by frost before lliey leave sourness and euuie to their sweetness Henry Ward lieeclier. TRUTH. Nothing shall warp me from the belter that every man Is a lover of truth. There Is no pure He. lie pure niallgulty. lu nature. The eiitenaiiitiietil of the propo sition of dcpt'ir. it v is the last prulligncy and inofaiiatiou. There Is no skepticism, no iitlielsm but that.

It Is strong proof that Nevada grown potatoes will return a revenue to the grower that cannot be excelled anywhere. A rancher la Lyon county, eighteen miles from the Copper Belt railroad, raised seventy acres of potatoes. The spuds were good, hurd, firm ud solid and the rancher sold them at 19 a ton. He raised ten tons to tho acre and he received In coin 127,300. It is an example of what others can accomplish. Nevada potatoes are the best In the win-Id. They command tho top prices in the San Francisco uii:vket , They have become so well kniwu ihat the housewife asks for t'e in. The man who rubles good potatoes In. Nevada, need never fear tltu'. he cr.r Li tell his product. There Is a greater d-maiid toi tor Nv.,l potuioes than can possibly be rilled. - coate Journal. BAR ASSOCIATION WILL HOLD BIG MEETING The call' .'or the meeting of the Nevada Bar association has been 1m sued by Hon. Hugh Brown. The body will meet at the court house in Reno ou May IS, and It Is ex pected that the meeting will be the lurgest In point of attendance that ever has been held. Mr. Brown gave the following Interview to the Tonopah llonanzu: "The meeting of the Nevuda Bar association for the purpose of con sidering tho matter of the recall of tile Judiciary will be held in nano on Mlty 18, and I think It will be a Hold day of debate; It will bc Interesting and unprecedented in ib history of the Nevuda Bar nssoein. Hon In the particular that there haa ueeu an occasion where the whole, bar association has been called to gether to debate a great Question of law or government. The Ques tion is wholly iion-nnrtlsflii: ihi are republicans who favor the re call, repuhllcaiisw ho oppose it,; mere are democrats who oppose It, leinocrals who are in favor of it. I look lor a large attendance, as the mailer Is one thut Is attracting the attention of many.

In Lincoln county alone are vast areas -r land vet in the possession of Uncle Sam; this is one place in the west where there are opportunities for the homeseeker. "'
