Why is ft that every lime y;u g to Pioche somebody brjaches thi county seat removal to you? Th main topic of ton vert at ion whet a Piocheite meets a Calic-nUite is "I hear you fellows are going t ni-ve the county seat." Of eours the reply has been "Nothing doing ,. ... . . i m-- ... o mare auu reiaita ome vi iu lui - that happene!. "But say, Caliente, it wouldn't a bad Idea to move that seat of ernment down here.

"Vis, but the taxpayers are not go Ing to stand for another $161,000 giaf for a court house. The fact is th j are not going to stand for aayiiil.ig, we taxpayers of this county are pa 'lag enough now, without having U build another court house. Court houie-s are nice filings to have ant they add dignity to a town; but they come high and are a luxury that can be got along without." "Yes, partner, but listen hero. 1 never asked you fellowa to build any court house here, have I? You get the consent of the legislature fx move the county seat, and I wili put. ycu up a court house that has the present one faded to a light bron. Do you get me? And l'li guarantee it won't cost the county a red cent" "I Just had a talk with Senator Pace. lie Isn't In favor cf the re raoval." "Isn't In favor of moving the coun ty sea? Why?" "Because it Is going to b too much of a burden to tae ia: payers of the county." "Yes, but we are not going to bur den the county. Havn't I told you. "Oh, we'.l. If your citizens will sub scribe, say $15,000, to re-move the paraphaualia from Pioche to he-rt and build a house to put it in he ia with you, with both feet. He will even put his name down for a thousand." ' "That's the kind of a spirit . w like to see. "BI1." is with us in everything we do on the square ant ia the open; but none of this hush business with Willie." "Weil, Caliente, if you will prom lse us that it isn't going to cost us anything we're with you strong." "Put her here on that. I've got $10,0a0 subscribed already and havn't seen any of the big men cf the towi. yet at all. Some of them wanted me 10 taae taelr money; but I had to refuse as I was afraid that if 1 tarted that I wouldu't have a place . big enough to store it And if this thing fell through, I would have to give it all back again.
