i a. i. Jvaowlton was in
i buslnes during the week.
The Virginia Louis mine shipped
twenty car of or last week. Thl
chronicles the release of the produc
tion of the mine from serious fetters
and reports the gratifying news' that
the property can ship a total of S50
tons a day under their contract.
The production of the mine could be
Increased to a much greater degree, as
the limit Is not fixed by the size of the
orebodies but by the amount which can
be used by the smelters.
The Increased production means
much to this big mine. The heavy
overhead expenses, which mutt be car
ried by all mines, are borne at the Vir
ginia Louise, although these are cut by
an efficient management to a mini
mum. The "overhead" remains con
stant, for practical purposes, whether
the production Is halved or doubled.
The opportunity to ship the additional
tonnage means the certainty of In
creased profits, and now for the first
time In the building of this mining en
terprise the way seems clear of ob
stacles. 1
One cloud and a "black and threat
ening cloud It Is hangs over all the
mines, and that Is the Increase of 24
per cent in freight rates which may
result at the hearing at Washington
May 24, when the railroads will ask
for this Increase.
However, it seems fairly assured
that the rate Increase will not be
granted unless the railroads prerent a
compelling argument to show Us need
and unless the railroads can prove
conclusively that the new rates will
benefit. In some degree, the shipper.
The publio service commission of
Nevada has the matter in their strong
hands and last Wednesday Chairman
John F. Shaughnessy wired H. E.
Freudenthal asking what effect the 24
per cent increase would have on the
local mines. It is needles to say that
the Increase would lay the icy hand of
death on some producers, already
wounded by the decline in the price
of silver and sick with the decay In
the efficiency of labor.
. The Virginia Louise Is fortunately In
a stronger position now, and- while the
Increased freight rate would hurt, yet
this increase can do no more than re
duce the profits otherwiR available for
' the stockholders.
The mine is further strengthened by
the discovery of other bodies of rich
ore, and the last strike of silver in the
mine Is responsible for the pleasing
grade of this week's shipments. The
rich ore found in the lower workings
. Is mixed with the regular production
raising the grade and per-mltting larg
er profits.
The cafrtiortaife'ls-no longer being
felt and the shippers of the district are
lending their beHt efforts to expedite
the rapid movement of empty and
loaded cars. The railroad company Is
"on the job,'4 and above both the ship
per and the carrier the ipuhlic , service
commission Is working hard to correct
abuses and Insure service.
Superintendent L. Q. Glllett of the
Virginia Louise continues the usual
development and the tonnage exposed
in the big mine is daily increased.
The work of production Is progress
ing as usual and with the new contract
permitting heavier shipments the fu
ture of the mine looks bright.

The bazaar held Saturday1 last in

with an additional benefit in the result
ot a generous financial contribution to
"the fund available to pay ofT the In
debtedness against the edifice.
The net receipts were in the neigh
borhood of $420, which will make a
roost substantial payment on the note.
The bazaar was most successful,
however, In bringing the ladies of ri
oche into a harmonious and happy
group engaged In the common Interest
of making this city a better place in
which to live.
The doors opened at 4:30 p. m. for
the sale of home-cooked foods donated
i y the ladles of Pioche, and the display
spoke well of their abilities in the cul
inary art. The foods, were promptly
sold and a hope has been expressed
that other similar sales will be held at
Intervals and permit the purchase, by
those less fortunate, of home-made
viands.
During the evening a display of
fancy work reminded the guests of
visit to the art department of some
city store. There were articles, deftly
fashioned, of practical utility. Aprons,
towelling, napkins served as a solid
base for the frillicr frivolous feminine
fancies. And of more interest to the
children there were lions and dogs, el
ephants and tigers on gorgeous, cellu
loid.
The popcorn booth was popular and
quickly emptied of its contents. The
fish pond was well stocked and each
and every angler was rewarded with
some prize.
This was the great attraction tor the !
young people, who did so hope to see
some fisherman with the accent heavy
on the last Syllable catch the powder
pug and powder.
The enttre affair was happy and the
financial return marks the least Im-)
portant part. "Everyone was per
fectly lovely," sums up In a few simple
words the gist of the whole gathering.
Th ladies ot I'ioche expressed their
gratitude to all those who worked bo
faithfully in the worthy cause and are
encouraged to further effort.

Four undesirables have shaken the
dust of Pioche from their feet during
tho week, this resulting from their no
tiflcation by the authorities that if they
did not leave town they would be ap
prchended and dealt with as vagrants
The latter idea, ot course, failed to
appeal to the Mextcano sensitiveness.
inasmuch as they as prisoners would
be required to labor on the county
roads, and straightway they departed, j
During the time the four undesir-
ablea nestled within the folds of the !
boundary lines of Jftoche a number of
petty thieveries were reported to the'
authorities, and although no direct ev
idence was forthcoming against the
quartet it is believed by those In a po
sition to know that they had something
to do with the disappearance of cer
tain valuables.
It is possible that by the time this
article is spread broadcast the four
wanderers will be In some other city

they did while in P toe ho. '

the cruel blows of life and has aroused

devil. But the thing the black thing
the empty, sneaking thing who
steals the hard-won savings ot an old
man passes beyond description.
The money was ke.pt in the house so
that It would be available In case of

An appeal has been made by Agent
U D. Edwards of the Caliente express
office in urging shippers to be patient
and to lend their cooperation In better
ing the express service.
"Now that . the American Railway
Express Company is operating under
Its own management," said Agent Ed
Wards, "we are gradually returning to
normal conditions and are Introducing
a great many changes in methods
which we eXpccf will, within a reason
able time, show results satisfactory to
shippers.
We -have already accomplished much
since the time of the merger In 1918,
arid, the service is generally considered
good. But we do not say It cannot be
improved, and that Is our aim. Tet
we cannot promise immediate Improve
ment, owing to the unsettled condltl -nt
that have to be faced during thetr pe
riod of readjustment. With the im
provement of the railroad service and
with more facilities in cars and ter
minals we believe that we can show
great progress in this dlrecton.
It is out of the question," said the
Caliente agent, "to consider what some
people call the 'unscrambling' of the
American Railway Express without
greatly unsettling the whole express
business and doing more harm than
good to the shipping public. The pres
ent company is an organization that
took over the business of the seven
formerly separate companies and con
solidated thetr working forces into a
unified operating agency, ot 100,000
men." -: -

In musical shorthand, the captured
music, even Jingled sweetly through
the linotype aa It was cast In singing
bars. But to read It from the blank
white spaces between th lines where
all such realities are printed, the
muslo can best be read through th
rose-colored glasses ot memory re
calling last Saturday evening, or some
Saturday evening or some other eve
ning when on the dancing floor there
was but a single couple and some oth
ers who did not count. When the soft
notes floated through the hapipy hall
and lifted the single coupleand th
others who did not count on the pur-,
pie clouds of symphony through which .
they flew, together beating the way on
wings of music.
Written thus In music, the descrip
tion of the dance can only be read
through the rose-colored glasses and
another report of the dahce Is: The
Pioche Jazs Orchestra gave a dance
last Saturday at which they took in
enough money after paying all ex
penses to almost -pay for the music
bought In Los Angeles for the danc.
Another report, probably sent In by
some flapper: The dance was lovely
and the music was lovely and hi ayes
are lovely and I love to dance.
Another report, probably sent In by
some tired old man on the grim aide of
twenty years: Yep. All right,.. Ain't
it awful.
So, taking all the reports, the dance
waa successful and thoroughly enjoyed.
Arthur Reall. John Hay and Watson S.
Slde-Livermore are entitled to thank
for their generous donation of th re
freshments and the member of the
