i i M vj J:j! ii V VOL III. EUREKA, MAMMOTH MATTERS. Last Saturday, at noon the Mammoth mine closed down, the reason given being that certain citizens of the camp were obstructing the tramway leading to the mill, and that it would continue until the obstructions ceased. It appears that James Nowlan xtnd others claimed Bome mining ground that was crossed by the tramway. Being unable to negotiate a sale to the Mammoth Company, Nowlan on Friday began driving a tunnel through the tramway. On Tuesday Mrs. J. T. Donahue began suit against Nowlan for $206.61, alleged to be due for merchandise, etc., part of which was an assigned account from the Mammoeh Company and attached Nowlan's interest in the property in dispute. The Copperopolis also quit work with the night shift Sunday, the Mammoth declining to furnish them water when their own works were shut down. It is difficult for an outsider to see any reason for the course taken by Supt. Robinson in the premises. He is punishing y working man in the camp, without reaching Nowlan and threatens to shut off the entire water supply. As the inhabitants are entirely dependent upon that company for water, it will work a hard1 ship upon them which it will e difficult to overcome. The men .have been working for $2 and $2.50 per day, and as many of them have large families, they are cot in condition to weather an enforced layoff at this season, without much suffering. Later we learn that under & temporary arrangement with .Nowlan, the excavation in the tramway was filled up and the ore team3 began their usual work Wednesday, the minebeiag started up that morning, and everything ,portends an amicable adjustment ev-er- of the difficulty. The Copperopolis also resumed work the same day, but are not hoisting ore. Several of the old men on the Mammoth claim they were refused reemployment unless they would fill in the hole made by Nowlan in the tramway, which Ahey naturally refused to do. Foreman McLeod claims that these men have aided nd abetted Nowlan and are sympathizers in his antagonism to the Mammoth Company, and on that account will not be put on the payroll again. The men deny this, one of them claiming that Nowlan is his personal enemy. It is quita probable the company will investigate the matter and do no one an iq justice. The men under baa are all steady and industrious, have families to support and are old residents of the camp. The claim is also made by former Copperopolis men that that mine is discriminating against them, in sympafhy with the Mammoth; Foreman Davidson, however, ridicules the idea, and says the Mammoth Company have made no rcquestf of him of that nature, nor any other. TIIE SALT LAKE KLKCTIOX. The rebuke given the Democratic party last week, by the election of C. S. Varian for Representative, is a precursor of what will follow in erery election from now until November 1896, and by that time, if the wgns can bo relied upon, Utah will be able to roll up a handsome majority for the Republican candidate who will succeed the present disgraceful incumbent of the Presidential chair. The unconditional repeal of the Sherman law, which was accomplished by ljulldozing and bribery by the president, which has no precedent ia tJbp annals of pur country, has brought poverty where plenty was all over the West, and the threatened blow to the tariff has closed ninety per cent of the factories of the East. From ocean to ocean surges a wail of sorrow, and the news columns of the Democratic press are filled with tales of suffering from the prosperous parts of this rich country. Add to this the humiliation brought upon us by the Hawaiian policy, the spawn of ignorance and hatred, and we may well murmur in despair, "How long, oh Lord, how long?1' JUAB COUNTY, UTAH, FRIDAY, JANUARY 12, the sport and made the welkin ring with laughter as some, less dextrous A MAN than others, would pile up in the snow.

He reserves his petticoats for the Fane-titof the home circle, for the partial retirement of hia orchard and for calls upon neighbors with whom hia acquaintance is cioso. Mr. Robbins isn't squeamish about showing himself in petticoats. He enjoys wearing them, ho has worn them when opportunity has presented all his lite long, and ho wears them scientifically too. In the first place, there's no half way business about it. Every detail cf feminine attire U there, and Mr. Robbins is rightly fussy about the details. There is no woman in Cooper's Milla who owns bo many dresses of such excellent material as does the commander of the Cooper's Mills post. He fakes pride in having only the best. His lingerie is elaborately tucked and rufiled, edged with lace and fashioned according to the most approved models of any lady's wardrobe. The material is of the finest quality, and when Mr. Robbins lifts ilia fckirta the eye gets a vision cf ruEIes, lace and "all such lika" of (Jazzing whiteness and immaculate smoothness. He is very particular about his ironing. Everything must be starched "up to the handle," whatever that is, and sometimes Mrs. Robbins rinds her hands full and her clotheshorse loaded down like a pack donkey. Amazed neighbors, who were not fully aware of tho extent of Mr. Robbins' hobby, have been obliged to ask for more details, when Mrs. Robbins has laconically in formed them that "it is Jim's ironing." Mr. Robbing' hosiery is of the long tort, end it is currently rumored that the stockings arc hitched up at the sides. His corsets he has made especially for his girth, and these he wears continually. His shape is fairly good, especially when he dresses up for afternoons. In tho morning he wears print gowns, for he assists in the housework. Alaof-every morning Mr. Robbins in his print gown is seen sweeping off the piazza and whisking about tha kitchen. He wears petticoats at home almost exclusively, putting on his garb as soon as he enters the hous. For afternoon wear his gowns are e;aV-,",- t.
