Property Changes Hands.
Several real estate transactions have
occurred since our last issue which we
have to report this week. Among
tho notable tranfers was tho sale by
Mrs. R, Kingsley of 80 acres of land
on Drews creek to Mr. Johnny Morris
of the West Side. Tho price paid was
$900. We also understand that Mr. L.
A. Carriker purchased 80 acres of land
from George Wright, of Drews Creek.
The place joins Mr. Carriker's ranch
on the east and is fine land.
At Pino Creek a number of transfers
were mado. McCleary &, Shauer, tho

Wife's Attorney Lose
Client After Being
CANDIDATE FOR U. S. SENATOR.
Alleged Scheme to Defeat Senator
Newlands With Lake
Before the Palace burned, one of its
frequent and prominent guest was
George B. Wingfleld, one of Nevada's
newly rich men, possessed of both
physical and mental attractions, am
bitious, generous. And now, both
here and in Tonopah and Goldfleld
there is a great deal of interesting
gossip of how A. L. Jieedlee of Tono
pah recently got and then lost a client
who was none other than the woman
claiming to be the wife of this multi
millionaire miner, George B. Wing
fleld, of Goldfleld.
Wingfleld Is a business associate
and friend of United Slates Senator
Geo. S. Nixon of Nevada and has a
considerable following In that state.
Accordingly, when his wife some
months ago determined to sne him for
a divorce, she fond counter influences
so great as to be unable to secure an
After repeated refusals from lawyers
to take the case, Mrs. Wingfleld final
ly secured the services of Attorney
Needles. It Is said all sorts of threats
was made against Needles In case he
brought suit for divorce for the
woman. Needles, however, refused to
be frightened- He blandly replied
that he was practising law in Tonopah
and he' was acting well within his
rights to take Mrs. Wingfleld . as a
client as long aa aba desired to secure
a divorce and asked him to attend to
the matter for her.
This was several weeks ago, and
Needles, acting for the woman, soon
had prepared for her a voluminous
complaint for divorce. This docu
ment was put on record In the Tono
pah courts, and is there yet. Not
withstanding, the prominence of
Wingfleld and the many sensational ,
charges the complaint contained, no '
newspaper in that section made the
least mention of it. As the story
runs, Wingfleld and his friends suc
cessfullv used their influence to stop
j any newspaper mention of it.
The divorce complaint aeaia ai
length with the wealth of Wingfleld
and describes the many properties in
which he is interested aa an owner.
All hia millions are described as com
munity property, and it is set forth
that the wife is entitled to half of
what can justly lie considered a king's
ransom. Wingfleld and the woman
were very poor a number or years
- . . . . . . i 1 1
ago. it is saia mat tney uvea uappiiy
until wealth in abundance began to
come to the couple. Aa riches poured
Into the household, peace ana accord
took winga and sped away.
The complaint dwella at lengtn upon
the many alleged acts of cruelty by
the husband, aud sets forth that she
has done everything possible to De a
good wife and try and regain her hus
band s regard aud aiiectiou.
Failing, it is said, to disuade need
les from filing a suit for divorce on
behalf of his wife against him, Wing
fleld is credited with perfecting plans v
to outwit the attorney. Be that as it
may, Needles, a few days ago was
brought to tno rorcioie reanzaiiou
that Mrs. Wingfleld, his client, was
missing. She has gone away and
left her attorney and her bulky re
corded divorce compluiut in the
lurch. Needles has not the least Idea
where she has gone and he draws tne
conclusion that she is missing because
somebody with a motive for doing so
has used strong pursuasion oi soma
kind to induce her to go away. He
will, however, take his own time in
watching for further developments.
He and his trieuda asseit they will
have something to say before anybody
can dismiss that divorce complaint.
This domestic scandal has thrown
the lime light ou Wiugfleld's political
ambitions, for it bus brought out tho
tact that tho Nixon political combin
ation in Nevada is grooming him for
United States Senator to succeed
Francis G. Newlands on tho expira
tion of the hitter's term lu tho near
future. It appears that Nixon and
Newlands are bitter political enemies
and that Nixon is making every effort
to get the scalp of Newlauda. Nixon
is credited with thinking that he can
accomplish thut end by putting Wing
fleld forward us a candidate. New-
lands wants to succeed himself, so
Nevada will witness a merry light for
jhe Senatorial togo among these mil
lionaires and their respective follow
iugs. Sun Francisco Examiner, Mon
day, Muy 28.
