hot agree to warm a whole township
this winter. We don't know what his
agreements aro, but we know ho can
be fopnd now in his oflisc without
scanning spiiec with a field glass.
We learn frpm partecs just in from
jlie mines, that a small extension of
one of the ledges has been sold for
$4,000, and that Allen & Cox have
bonded another mine for $10,030. Mr.
Frank Ballard, who has just returned
from Pine','has secured an interest in
four claims, 'two of w.hiei are good siU
S'er bearing ledges. He thinks that
pot many more mines will lie sold this
fall, qwing to the lateness of the Fea-
Jpp. He gives it as his opinion that
next year, just as many good ledges
Will be found as have been this. Ev
erything continues to show that these
mines will be the richest ever struck.
We l,ear. Jt yrpporcd that two gapgs
pf Clpnaineii, employed' on tho rail

Whether it was from the fact that their

Whether it was that tjio war spirit
Against them influenced tho railroad
Co. tp bid them, a listing farewell or
pot. It would seem from the prints
throughout the stato that the Chinese
pipst "go," Well wo supposo tlloy
must, but wo hope brutal outrages
against tjteip will not 1)3 resorted to.
Wo have po objection to tieir being
induced to'-go," so Ions as the iuduco
jpept is within tjie pales of the law.

After all the statements, that have
been made that the Governor would
call a special session of the legislating,
for the purpose of doing what the re
publicans failed tp do at the last, legis
lature, viz : to elect a United State
senator, and the contrary statements
that he certainly would not hazzard
his reputation of good judgement, by
so doing, he has put these specula
tions at rest by issuing a called session
of pie legislature to meet November
utl). ere the election of a U. b. sen
ator the only thing which the extra
session could do, wo certainly believe
the "call" would bo of verv little bene
fit to the state as compared "with extra
expenditures which of necessity must
occur. But tome of the laws passed
at tjie regular session, need repairing
and put in better shape, and if tins
can and will bo done to the advantage
of the state at large, the objection to
the extra session, will bo at least par
tially removed. Wq hope that the
very best interests of the state will be
taken into consideration, apd that no
more such blunders will be made in
