and damage suits brought by Henry V.
Mauwell against the Ruby Silver Mining
company to recover one-eighth of the capi
tal stock of the company, valued at S1S7,
oOO, was dismissed by Judge Henry to-day
at the instance of ManwelPs attorneys.
The reason for the dismissal was the ina
bility to get all the persons concerned into
court. Manwell asserts that he gave W.
C. Touker the money to buy the mines and
to form a company of which he was to
have one-eighth of the capital stock. Ton-
ker got the mnes and formed a company
but refused to transfer the eighth share of
the stock to Manwell.
