Capt. F. L. Evans then addressed
the meeting, saying in part : "We

There are two classes of men upon

upon any others and these are the pio
neers and the miners. 1 am glad to

of mining men I have ever teen in my

Judge 0. C. Nelson was then intro
duced to the audience by the chairman
and at once established his reputation
as an eloquent and forceful speaker,
saving in part :
"The purpose of this meeting Is, I

of this section and mankind in general.

through the same hardships here as
they have elsewhere. If the gold ex
ists in the mountains here I know our
people will bring it forth.
I want to pay a tribute to the farmer
who lives in this valley. 1 see plenty
and prosperity in this sect on. I want
to tell you old fellows that blazed the
way that you are great men and what
enricnes you enriches me. Jnntead of
standing by your plow handles and
sneering at the miners here you should

There will be a great market here
for every kind of farm produce. Say
totthe miners 'You to the mines and
I to the plow.' What you produce
from the mines will make you rich
and make me rich too.
Do not be discouraged because these
mines are not brought forth in a day.
The tree does not grow from a sapling
in a day. It gold was too plentiful it
would have no value, liecause of its
rarity gold moves tho whedH of the

Nelson Kounsevell was then called to
the platform and addressed the audi
ence on the subject of city water works
and fire protection, saying in part:
"The two great resources of this
country are the mines and the farms
and although I am not a mining man I
know gold when I see it and although
not a farmer 1 know alfalta when I
see it. For these reasons I decided
New fine Creek was to become a city
and decided to cast my lot with you.
The first thing that attracted my at
tention here was that you had recently
had a great fire and that you were
putting up frame buildings without
fire protection. While pure water is
flowing down from the mountains we
are drinking water from wells that
may be polluted. A water system for
this city is of the utmost importance.
The great handicap of a wBter system
is the amount of money required to
build it, but we have discovered a man
who will furnish half the money and if
we do not wake up and furnish the
world. We believe that up here ( other half we are all asleep. To raise

the city which would be ample to pro
tect from tire. The domestic water
supply would be entirely separate
from the fire system. This town Is
liable to burn up at any time and needs
tiro protection at once, I have been
asked to see how much money you will
put up to have thia system put in here.
If the money is raised the pipe will be
here by the middln of July and inside
of six weeks the system can be com
pleted. The money can be paid ten
per cent on demand, 30 per cent Sept.
1, 30 per cent on Aug. 1 and 30 per
cent Oct. I. The system will' cost
from S8.000 to $10,000 and if we can
raise from $:i,(ioo to $i,0OO here the
balance will be raised on the out
side." Calling tor volunteer subscriptions
