In compliance with the request of !" mny ", D
Mayor Wltcher that a mass meeting
be held Sunday afternoon at the city
hall for the purpose of forming an
organisation to aid In securing feder
al aid to reclaim groundwater lands'
In eastern Nevada, a large number of
people were present and a temporary
organization formed, says the Ely
Record.
- At an adjourned meeting held
Monday evening, which was well at
tended. It was decided to form a per.
manent organization to be known as
the Eastern Nevada Reclamation As
sociation, and the following officers
were elected: A. B. Wltcher, presi
dent; W. A. Leonard, vice-president;
Thomas A. Bath, treasurer; O. S.
Hoag, secretary. A committee on
finance was appointed by the presi
dent as follows: D. C. McDonald,
John Gallagher and S. C. Patrick. A
committee on organization and by
laws was also appointed as follows:
O. S. Hoag, C. A. Eddy and D. C. Mc.
Ddnald.
After some discussion It was de
cided to admit members from all sec
tions of eastern Nevada, as it was the
idea to make the association repre
sentative of the entire eastern section
of the state rather than to confine
the work of reclamation to the val
leys of White Pine county. The
membership fee was fixed for the
year at $10, and It was the sense of
the meeting that there would be no
dues.
After considerable discussion by
those present it was decided to send
a representative of the association to
Washington In the near future, In
order to call the personal attention
of Secretary Lane to the importance
of the groundwater lands of eastern
Nevada, in order that he might be
come familiar with this class of land
resources and make provision in the
bill which he Is now drafting for
their reclamation on the same gen
eral terms as the lands of irrigation
and swamp drainage projects. It will
also be the privilege of the committee
to point out to Secretary Lane the
fact that under this plan there will
be several hundred thousand acres of
land available for reclamation within
a very short time, while under the
.other proposed plans the land would
not be available for several years. -C.
W. Riddell of the United States
geological department was present at
the meeting and In addition to the
address which he delivered before
the association Hunaay tofteinocu,
said that in his opinion Snake, Spring
and Newark valleys In White Pine
county also furnished splendid fields
for the development of groundwaters
for irrigating purposes. He also said
that Butte and Clover valleys in Elko
county were most favorably consid
ered by the geological department
for such enterprises, and that from
general report he had reason to be
lieve that the field could also be ex
tended to the lower White river val
ley in Nye county, and to the upper
portion of Railroad valley, where
groundwater was demonstrated in a
number of wells some years ago when
drilling was done for potash. It is
also known among local people that
perhaps Lake valley, in Lincoln coun
ty presents the most favorable field
of all valleys In this section for this
particular class of work, and it is
also, probable that many thousands of
acres of land could be reclaimed by
the same method in Cave valley, also
In Lincoln county, and it was for
these reasons that the association de
elded to extend its field of endeavor
beyond the confines of White Pine
county. It will therefore be the ob
ject of the association to secure ap
propriations for all valleys in eastern
Nevada where the possibilities of se
curing groundwaters are probable
and have been recommended by the
geological survey.

Charles R. Evans, congressman-
elect, is on the way to Washington
He has blood In bis eye and hair on

sided with the minority. Mr. Evans
nevertheless, expects to be able to do
something which previous re pre sen
uuives from the mining stater have
confessed they were unable to do.
One of these is to find out why the
smelters can take or reject offerings
rrom the miner and why a miner is
virtually barred from erecting any
sort of a smelting plant on his prop
erty, says the Tonopah Bonanza.
"I may not succeed," said the new
Congressman, "but I am going to be
heard, and if there is any way to se
cure redress I am going to get it. In
the first place, I want to find out why
the Western Ore Purchasing Com
pany, representing the smelter trust,,
will not accept copper matte from the
Wall Street mine at Lunlng. We
would be operating that property to
day, using Coaldale coal and bringing
out an industrial expansion that
would be beneficial to all classes of
labor. We found that by installing a
reverbatory furnace and using Coal
dale coal,' which Is better suited for
the purpose than any other fuel, we
could produce a' copper matte at a
profit. While we were arranging for
the furnace we were advised by the
Western Ore Purchasing Company
that we might as well quit since that
company would not buy the matte
and would offer no encouragement
unless -the ores from the Wall Street
went to the smelter. I want to know
why there Is no market for copper
matte .and I am going to find out.
. "This is the same game they
worked with the Thompson smelter
trust and was allowed to reopen with
the consent of that Interest. They
are about to close on the first oi
March, -having received orders . to
that effect, so the copper producers
of western Nevada will suffer a seri
ous Betback. When one set Of men
can dictate to an Important Interest
like the mining industry there must
be something wrong at the bottom of
the whole business. I have been
reading the Congressional Record
and find that the men who are sup
posed to be looking after the peo
pie's interests don't get anywhere.
They start something and quit.
"I would like to represent Nevada

Preliminary steps were taken at a
meeting Wednesday evening in the
office of A. L. Scott toward the or

desire of those attending the meeting
to organize a club of between fifteen

to the government for the Issuance
of free arms and paraphernalia nec
essary for indoor and outdoor shoot
ing. When a few more members art
secured an application will be ton-
warded to the National Rifle Assc
clation for membership in that or-
gpnizatlon.,,, It is .the intention toJ
ittKe me younger men or Pioche into
the association that they may 1m en
abled to prepare themselves for any
eventuality that may occur in this
country at any time in the future.
Anyone wishing to Join the club
may make application to A. L. Scott,

How to develop the bunas rela

now engaged in mining la the United
7w . . " P't interests of
the industry was the first and most
striking subject to some before the
American Institute of Mining Engl-
"men openea us 1 1 th meet
ing la New fork Monday. Hundreds
of mining engineers, representing
every Important center in the eoua-
vry, are m attendance.
In discussing the need for a closer
human relationship with labor, the
engineers went further than to theo
rise. Durinr the saaalnn thw
modern uses of vocational schools In
mining communities, ways of using
cripples, either discharged soldiers
or civilians who are disabled by ac
cident; the prevention of Illness
among employes in mines, snd ways
of clarifying the problem of the em
ployment or mine labor. The earnest,
neas with which the institute mem
bers approached this indicates the
Important place which they have
given it alone with the highly tech
nical subjects which have a place ok
the program.
The mining engineers went on rec
ord to urge a uniform mining law for
the continent of North America. For"
a long time, it is said, the confusion
in mining laws in Canada and the
United States has led to a dunltca-
tion of effort and has sometimes ere-
ated a barrier to international coop
eration in mining. .A general belief
is prevalent now that a plan can be
devised which will remove wasted ef
fort In the mining world throughout
tne continent.

Observations
by 0. R. Nation
In the "good old days" it was the
custom of the cow-punchers when in
town to partake of a "dutch" lunch
at Hy Ollnghouse's meat emporium.
Nearby thirst parlors Invariably fur
nished the refreshments In the form
of Schlitz or "Bud." On Wednes
day the Delmue boys and nearly a
dozen cow-punchers were here after
a midwinter roundup. They went to
Hy's as usual for their "chow," but
the best that could be had in the way
of refreshments was. root beer ob
tained at the soda fountain. Think
of washing down an OUnghouse menu
with yeast foam.
