Mr. A. Koberle, of Oakland, Cal., is
in Silver looking over the mining situa

our beautiful climate, and as he is a
man who has visited nearly every part
of the globe, his judgement on such
matters is considered good authority.

It is reported that Wm. Plughoff, of
the Ontario Argus, has sold his
paper plant and business, and bas re
tired from actire participation in the
struggles of this life, and intends to
lire a life of ease and luxury. A few
years ago, when we first knew "Plug,"
he was publishing a red hot democratic
paper in Vale, and was a thoroughly
dyed in the wool follower of Jefferson
and Jackson, but a turn of fortune's
wheel made him the owuer of a repub
lican paper, and so "Plug" has tried to
to appear to the world as a G. O. P.
booster and a disciple of Roosevelt.
The only reason we can think of that
caused "Plug" to quit the republican
newspaper business, is, that the imbib
ing of so much republican dope into
his system has given him the "Yaller
Janders" or perhaps his "liver is
touched." No, no, "Plug," you will
never make a good republican, although
yon were a good republican editor.
Our band is progressing nicely under

The interest taken by the members in

a b md second to none in the state. All
that is uecessary for a community to
enjoy the blessiugs of this life is to be
contented with the surroundings and
to make tire beet of the conditions as
fonnd. With our glorious mountain
climate and prosperous mines and
bright prospects for the futuie, even if
silver has gone down to 47% cents, we
will make the best of it aud laugh aud
grow fat, and let the other fellow do the
worrying. The next thing to start in
Silver is an Amateur Dramatic Club;

friends, aud enjoy this short life while
you live, for when you die you will be a
long time dead.

Our merchants are good hustlers and
up-to-date business men, and very ac
comodating, but we doubt if they can
equal the Jew in the following article:
A gentleman went into the shop of a
Jewish clothing dealer and laid a five
dollar gold pieoe on the counter in pay
ment for what he wished to buy. In a
few moments the man returned and
saw the Jew's little boy in the act of
swallowing the money. The Jew de
manded another five dollars, which hie
customer declined to pay. The gentle
man finully said he would see the Jew
again, but still he thought he should
be allowed credit for the five dollars.
A week later he went into the shop
again. The Jew said : "I gave my boy
castor oil, I gave him pills, I gave him
everything I think of, an all I get vos
t'ree dollars an' eighty-five cents!"—

trip lie may cross the big pond and in

not informed as to the exact parties in
London whom he expects to interest
in the company's property, but think
he may interview both Edward and
Alexandria on the subject and succeed
in getting them interested in this flour
ishing camp. Mr. Waldron will depart
for the east to select the uecessary ma
chinery for the mine, about the middle
of the mouth. Mr. Cartwright, the
foreman of the company, is rapidly
pushing the tuunel into the mountain
with three shifts of good miners.

managing the development of a mining
properly he will generally prove an ut
ter failure. One instance of this ia
shown in this camp where an Euglish
company sent one of their men over
here to manage a certain property, and
the first thing he had done was to level
a plot of grouud near their mill and fix
it up in good shape for a "tennis court."
It is needless to say that through his
mauagement the property was finally
closed dowu. With the proper manage
ment by a practical, experienced miner,
who is thoroughly posted on the pecul
iarities of this camp, this property could
be made one of the best paying mining
properties in the state.
In every case where the management
was in the hands of practical mining
men and they were backed up by enough
capital to properly develop the property
it lias been a success. Therefore,
say to investors, look to the manage
ment as well as to the mine.
