THOMAS RYAN APPOINTED RECORDER After a Lona-Drawn Ont Contest. Tbe board of supervisors mot Toes day afternoou in epeaial session call ed for tbe purpose of electing a county recorder to till the vacancy caused by the death of I). A. Patter son. liefore the meeting time ar rived, there were half n dozen as pirants for tbe place; at leant there were that number mentioned in con nection with the office. The nntlvo asplinnts were T. Ryan, X, U. Dlerce, W. K. MoFarland and George Lucot. In behalf of Kynn it wan urged that he had beeu defeated at the last elen ion atter spending time and money in tbe canvass on the democratic side; that he was tbe ioglcal succes sor. Tbe candidacy of Uierce was based on claims of the family of tbe deceased recorder, tbe aspirant beiug a son-in-law. Tbe democratic county- committee met also on Monday, and there was developed a oleau-cnt opposition to a contlnuauoe of the policy of the past in regard to the deputysbip. According to tbe current reports, tbe committee were nuanimously in favor of a male deputy; tbat employes of county ottloers should be taken from the voting list. It does not appear tbat tbe oommittoemen bas any par ticular individual preference outside of this principle. But the idea got abroad tbat Kyau, tbe leading candi date was not in favor of making any change, and hence a square issue was raised. When tbe time set for the meeting of tbe supervisors arrived, tbe matter was still in the air. To endeavor to reach some conclusion, it was arragu ed that four members of tbe central committee should caucus with tbe four members of the board of super visors, and settle the question of supremacy by ballot. This was cer tainly a novel plan. An elective, responsible body, pitted against an appointed committee by tbe democra tic convention. Tbe arrangement to tally failed to untie tbe knot of dis cord. A number of ballots were taken in secret oa.uoua without result -a tie voto in each _ instance, the four siipeivlaors stacking: up \ for Ryan, aud tbe four committeemen for George Lucut— the sole issue being tbe matter of deputysbip. After a series of indecisive ballots, it was apparent that neither side would give way. Thereupon the name of George Luoot, who was backed by tbe com mittee, was withdrawn, and the caucus was at an end. The board of supervisors was there upon called together. Thomas Kyau was nominated by D. A. Eraser, and A. Grillo nominated Geo. C. Jenn ings, who was tbe candidate on the republican ticket at the last election of reoorder. The roll was called and Uyan received the four demo cratic votes of supervisors linrke, Fraser, Ltagley and Strohm, and Jennings received one vote, tbat of Grillo. Ryan was thereupon declar ed duly appointed recorder of Ama dor county for the unexpired term. Taxpayers Notice Timber land will be assessed at $5 per acre.

Jnrvis wna taken dangerously sick ia San Frnnolsuo the latter part of last week, tie had been complaining for ovor a woek befoio going to the city. He was troubled witb pains in bis legs, but kept at work in tbe assessot'e olUoe iv making out assessment lists up to Tuesday evening of- last weok. On Wednesday and Thursday he re mained nt his home ia Sutler Creek, lioing a grand trustee of tbe N. S.U. W., he waa notified that a meeting of the grand- oUioers would be held it) Han traucisao on Tuesday evening. So Friday morning ho rose' from bis slok bed determined to attend the meeting if possible. It was called for the purpose of considering," tbe case o£ (Jims. 11. Turner, the defaulting ex-secretary of the order. l :On that morning his friends noticed a change In bis appearance nnd vpeeob. '. Tbe left side of his face was drawn,, and his articulation of words was out of tbe usual. Evidently there waa something organically wroug. lie was soon at the lone depot by bis deputy, Geo. A. Gordon. He told him tbat ho would go to tho city if be felt able to make the trip; if otherwise, he would stop over at Stockton. He went on to San Fran cisco, but his condition was such that he was unable to attend the meeting of the grand officers that evening. Saturday it was nnuouucod tbat be was suffering from a stroke of paralysis at tbe Argonaut hotel. Sunday morning Mrs Jarvis went down to be with her husband, lie was removed to tbe home of a friend in lierkeley. On Wednesday tbe oity morning papers stated tbat be was' in a dying condition, and this news was telephoned here by parties in San Francisco, and caused much uneasi ness. Later messages tbe same day stated that newspaper reports were ex aggerated, that he was a very sick man, but was likely to recover. It is expected tbat be will be well enough , to make the journey home next Sun day. Tbe precise nature of bis ailment is not dear. It is the general impres sion that be bas overworked tilmnaif r between bis- duties as assessor .and' looking after his laundry business. He is a tiroless worker. In tbe flush of manhood, he was thought to be in tbe pink of physical health, tie had worked very hard during tbe past to weeks, closing up tbe assessment roll, which should be turned over two the board ot supervisors next month.

MINING NOTES. j Argonaut.— The mill started last Tuesday to its full capacity of 40 stamps;' and will ran steadily from now on. All tbe reserves of ore, ax hansted during the recent Jabor trouble, have been replenished. There is no difficulty in getting all the men needed. In tact, tbe supply is muoh greater than the demand. It is tbe same witb all tbe mines here abouts. Some of tbe mines are run ning short-handed, as compare witb the number of employes before tbe walk-out, but this is not owing to any shortage of available men. Under tbe eight hour system now In vogue tbe employes get out of tbe various mines fully half au hour earlier than under tbe system that prevailed prior to May 'Jth. . Defender.— At this mine - tbey are getting their cyanide plant iv run ning order, and expects to be able to start tbe same in a few days. This plant is desigued for tbe treatment of tbe tailings, which have been saved in large quantities. These tailings assay about $2 per ton, and if,75 per cent of this value can be 'recovered by cyanide process, the plant will pay a haudsomo profit. Tests have been made by experts, and all icports are encouraging, and to tbe effect that it will prove remmera tlve. It Is estimated that over 500U tons of debris await treatment. Tbe mine and mill are not operating, as it is intohded to install electric power, which ia much more eco nomioal than steam. Witb these im provements, and tbe introduction ot tbe oyanide method, it ia hoped that tbe mine can be plaoed on a dividend paying basis. A Thrilling Rescue How Hert R.

Tbe memorial services were held in tbe afternoon, in the Jackson cemetery. Tbe Knigbts of Pytbias assumed tbe leading part in directing the ceremonies, other fatenal orders assisting, namely the N. S. U. W., N. D. G. W., Foresters and others. There was a large attend ance, notwithstanding tbe day was oppressively hot and sultry. Most ot tbe shade trees have been removed from the cemetery grounds, so there was no escaping from tbe fierce rays of the sun. Tbe exercises were lm pressivley oarried out as follows: Selection by the Jaokson band. Singing by the choir. Address by \V. 11. Ureenbalgb, president of tbe day. Prayer by Key. T. Jl. Nicholas.

Old War Veteran Dies In County Hospital Jobn Marti, commonly known as John Martin, died in tne county hospital on Tuesday morning last, after a short iilneßS. Death was due to extreme age. According to tbe register be was 90 yaers old, although some who were intimately acquainted with him during life, place his age at 93. He was a settler near Uutte mountain since early days, having takeu up a tract of land there, and made it his home up to within a short period of bis demise. He lived alone and during the last few years was cared for by an allowance from friends. A week or so before tbe end, being unable to look after himself, and without money to hire help, be was advised to go to the hospital, which he did willingly. Deceased was a veteran of tbe Mexican war. It is a singular coincidence that two veterans of this war— as far as we know, tbe only participants iv that straggle who resided in this section died within a week of each other. D. A. Patterson was tbe other veteran. Martin, however, persist ently refused to apply for a pension. For yeara prior to bis death be was entitled to a pension of 820 per month at least, witb back pay stretching for mauy years into tbe past. Altogether tbe sum be might have secured in this way, would have keep him in aUluenoe. liut he would not apply for relief from the national treasury. He has no relatives on this coast, although it is said be ban a sister in tho east. Another report, probably without foundation, is to tbe effect that a considerable sum of money was buried on his ranob many years ago, and has Dover been disturbed. The caobe belonged partly to a partner of bis early days. Up to within a short time of bis death, he declined to reveal anythiug concerning the buried treasure would neither iilllrui nor deny tbe story. The funeral was held Thursday afternoon. He was buried witb all tbe respects due to a pioneer and a war veteran. His ranch was deeded to the linn of K. Uinocohio and ISi oh., in consideration of that firm taking who of him in his declining years, an agreement whlob lias beeu oouscientiously carried out.
