(Ir^uni/iition of III«' Virginia City Ath letik Association. The Virginia City Athletic Club was organized Thursday evening and from the healthiness of its membership roll, promises to be one of the long-lived institutions of the city. A constitu tion and by-laws were adopted, and it was decided to rent W. A. dark'* hall and lit it up as a gymnasium, which is to be open to members every night ex cept Sunday. The following ollicers were elected Val tor Ciirtemaii, president: Henry llnford: vice president: Valentine Hil bert, secretary, and Norman Nelson, treasurer. A standing committee of live, con sisting of Henry Ituford, frank Kolih (Jeorge Parrel 1, Uichard Viekers and Morris Wiles was selected, as a cosii lnittee to preserve order. As tlio nietnbers of the club consist largely of boys who are rapidly ap proaching the threshold of manhood, and us t.lie gymnasium such as proposed would give them a place to spend their evenings advantageously and pleasure ably, the boys should be given every encouragement. The movement is timely and we trust, will succeed. t lu» County IVo|>lc Who Have Visit Seilt Durintc tin? Week. Among those registered at the M i.son house this week are: Albert Vincent.
