Grants Puss in view of tho immense
amount of mining machinery which

trail, dug wider and is lni nsHible
with anything liko decent loads. It
is announced that unless tho road is
overhauled and put ou a reK cliiMo
grade, ono of these companies will
put iu a road to another railroad
point and if this is done it will
doubtless curry tho tralllo ot the dis
trict. A few hundred dollars sih.miI
ou the present route would retain the
. trade, which may otherwise get away.
Wo doubt if tho business men of this
city as a class, fully realize tho ini
jKjitang. of this matter. The lialice

'trio composed of Mr. Knox, II. I.
Hockott and E. A Newby. Mr.
Knox's iHirtiou of tho entertainnient
was highly amusing aud immensely
entertaining Mr. Kelsay gavo brief
talks between thn readings aud the
songs. He advanced tho customary ar
guments in favor of prohibition, re
garding tho proposed law as a means
to that end. The meeting ended with
an appeal by Mr. Kelsay for subscrip
tions to curry ou the work. Ho inti
mated that each one of the audience
owed a dollar for tho i ntertainmeiit
furnished by Mr. Knox, but few, it
was noticed, appeared to bn in an)
great hurry to liquidate the debt. He
apjmsled to tho audience that each one
should do bis very bust, impressing
that point by a story, stated as a real

was impossible to launch a life boat,
