Mcndcnhall, Hunter & Co., have over
eighty head of horses in their stables.
This is one of the hu'gest livery stables

agers of the atl'air were busy yesterday
engaging vehicles to carry the little
folks to the grounds.
We publish to-day a comment on the
decisions recently delivered on the
"drummer' lax law. It will be found
interesting reading at this time, when
the question is being so generally dis
cussed, owing to the enforcement of a
similar law in this Territory that has,
till recently, been a dead letter. There
is much tobe said on each side, and the
decisions that we reprint are worthy of

of the transfer to a Nashville company

coveries on both sides of Baldy. Some
of the specimens are very beautiful and
give promise of rich mines. Viiuurrun

Lighting Our Streets.
The citizens' committee, appointed
by the Board of County Commissioner?
to report on the feasibility of lighting
our streets by gas, made their report to
the board yesterday forenoon. After
taking the matter under advisement,
the commissioners voted to accept the
proposition of the Las Vegas (as and
Coke company, and the contract was
duly drawn up and signed. By the con
tract, the company agrees to keep thirty-live
lanterns lighted, the county to
pay $1,. 100 per annum, the same price
being paid for thirty-iie as for thirty as
at lirst proposed by the company. It is
expected that the posts and lanterns j
will arrive in about two weeks, and
will be duly placed in position.
The prompt action of the commis
sioners in deciding to light our streets is
to be commended. It is just what was
needed, and we are glad that the mem
bers of the board have decided the
question, as all our citizens had hoped
they would.
