When the house convened at 8 o'clock to
night the gallery , lobbies and aislei were full
of expectant onlookers. The lloor was
littered with discarded newspapers , aban
doned bills and gay public documents.
Waste baskets wore being heaped with bill
files , Ink bottles and cuspidors to spend the
remainder of their useful careers in orna
menting city ofllces unit county farm houses.
Speaker Kldcr , conscious of his utter in
ability to manage the helm , put Church
Howe lu the chair , without even calling the
house to order. The Independents , who
have not succeeded In enacting any of the
Important measures domnndi'd by their plat
form Imvo been hanging their last hope
on the Khtimwny bill. They made ono brief ,
spasmodic effort this afternoon to put it up ,
but were circumvented by the opposition
with the rule requiting a two-thirds vote to
take up a measure out of its regular order.
At the llrst opportunity tonlcht Shrador
'moved to go Into committed of the whole to
'consider the usury bill , and after some fili
bustering It was curried. Font , Dronnun and

laughing spasms , and an Intermittent IIro of
paper wads added to the prevailing hilarity.
At 1) ) o'clock the ofllclnl timepiece was
turned back two hours , and the assemblage ,
catching the subtle suggestion that Cornish
had been talking all night , gave him a round
of laughing raillery.
Dobson of Flllmoro , the old mnn eloquent ,
took tha lloor and scared Cornish and his nr-
Knmonts In a ( light ot brilliant oratory , but
the crowd was In no mood for eloquence , and
When ono of his denunciations was capped by

state Institutions , and the senate submitted
amendments providing for deficiencies which

A number of senators were misting from

And Senator Swltzlrr moved a call of the

during the presentation of a beau

The arraignment of the missing ones and the
serio-comic method of excusing them , nil

afforded some entertainment to the members.
Senator Swltzlcr then rose to n question of

he referred to the distillled and nblo manner
in which President Majors had presided over
the senate , presented him with an elegant
gold wnlch , The president was taken by

were brought from the cellar , the uttle and
the stores In town and filled with circulars ,

of the worker * making their appearance.
Those represented Important * interests , and
reared that bills calculated to Injure them

This was a precaution which , howeverwas
not Justified. The members were tired and
only too glaa to get home.
There wore only two absentees at the af
ternoon session , .Messrs , Shea and Taylor.
The Termer unfortunately has boon absent
nearly all the session , and bis absence has
been n source of regret to many of the mem

Prospectors Are Flocking to tbo Bcono and
Locating Good Claims ,
Famous Lost Brayfogle Mine is in the Bait ,
4 but Not Relocated.
They HnfTered from Thirst arul Ilcnt

Which Were Recently
SAN FitAXcisro , April -I. Recent mineral
discoveries in that part of Nye county , Ne
vada , known as Death valley have aroused
great excitement on the i'acitle slopo. As
already fully described In Tan Bun it is
claimed that the famous Uroyfoglo mine ,
which was lostyearsago , has been ro-Iocated.
Whether it Is this old legendary mine that
has neon struck apaln , or an entirely now
find that has heen made has provoked much
discussion in mining elrclos. It will take
some tlmo evidently to settle the merits of
the new discoveries , and the contradictory
reports which appear from time to tlmo are
not calculated to help the matter. So far no
Investigation of the original statements 1ms
been made which would justify an opinion on
the subject ono way or the other , while the
fact that the district includes the location of
the celebrated lost mine known as the Hroy-
foglo hlghtcns public interest in the solution
of the question involved.
A report which was circulated hero that
Ich ore had been discovered In the Death
alloy country took several parties into the
leld. Some started out well equipped for
.11 . expedition through the district and a pro
onped stay , while othow simply made
lying trip of It , to take in the outlook at a
glance nnd with as much speed as possible.
The latter party has returned and made a ro-
> ort. Among the names mentioned are those
f Callahnn , until recently superintendent of
.ho Diamond U mine of Nevada ! Irwln , well
nowu in connection with Iho Uodlo
: atnp , and BrIUen , nn old-time suporiu
ondont of the Andes inluo. Those
neil made the trip In less than thirteen
days , which , as It takes olRht days to drive
0 the camp ana return to Oa gett , the u car
; st railroad point , and thirty-six hours each
, vay going and coming from'thls city , did not
eave them many hours within which to pros
pect the now mid so as to bo able to report
authoritatively on the subject. They nro all
reliable ' , clear-headed and thoroughly non-
s'clcntious men , and , as such , what they say
must carry weight among mining men , who
know them , If not personally , at least by
reputation. Mr. Irwln said that the country
had not yet boon prospected sufficiently to
enable any one toforin any correct idea of the
value of the discovery. The whole matter
simmered down to a question of development
work , with a coed prospect to start upon. In
conclusion Mr. Irwln remarked , "I have no
doubt there will bo a camp there. "
WIHT THE i > iscoviiir.n : SAYS.
In an Interview with George Montgomery ,
the original ( liscovercrof the mineral which Is
attracting so much attention , ho "said : "I
loft San Andreas , Cahweras county , Col , ,
last September on a prospecting tour through
the Death valley district , talting with mo a
complete outfit with a packtraln and twenty-
four animals. I entered Nevada south of the
Carson and struck off towards Walker lake.
After leaving Hawthorne I loft the railroad
ut Soda springs and moved west until I
struck the Firebug mountains. Hero I began
prospecting , and took In the whole country
with poor success until I reached Timber
mountains , as they are known by the people
ple thoro. Sometimes they are called the
Charleston mountains. Hero I went through
n strip of country titty miles cast end west
nnd 150 miles In length , north ana south. In
tlio northward trip 1 found little worth men
tioning , und did not meet with anything to
locate Until January 9.
"I found some ROOJ cropptngs flvo miles
west of north end of Charleston mountains ,
from which I got some coarse gold , A nugget
was broken Irom the quartz at ono point ,
which yas worth from $5 to fi. ( The next
day I broke out some more rock and took out
about 10 iu coarse sold. I tnon located the
inluo. For some days after I prospected In
the neighborhood mid found spnio silver ere ,
assays from which , made by ITalkcnau in
San Francisco ran 111.80 ounces to the ton.
That was a fair average of the ere
as I took It out at that tlmo. contem
plating shipping it for reduction. The
whole canm was then moved to Grapevine
spring on the west sldo of the mountain , and
systematic prospecting was carried on for
some tlmo in the .surrounding country. Asa
result I niiido several other locations , ono of
which was silver and the rest gold-bearing
rnosi'KCTOus IN LUCIC.
"Boforo leaving the camp I directed others
to veins ana they located on them. From
some of these I have since heard that they
opened out well In coarse gold. The Yotint
HrotH'ors made one ot the locations , and t
had a letter last week In which they said
that they had just taken out f . ' .Tin one shot.
1 have not made any attempt to boom this
district slnco niv arrival nnd I do not wish to
bo held responsible by men whe start out ox-
peeling to And gold hanging on K reason ooit.
I am satisfied myself In respect to the district :
1 have located property to suit myself und
propose to solve the question of its value to
my own satisfaction , it is quite true that
the camp Is still only a prospect , nnd that it
will take time und money to open It up. lint
at the same tlmo It Is what will bo very gen
erally admitted a very good prospect. "
In conclusion Montgomery remarked that
It was unintentional on his part that so much
publicity hod been given the matter. Any
one who wished information on the subject
from him always got It without any attempt
at exaggeration. The mines , ho claims , nro
In the sumo bolt as the old Uroyfoglo mine ,
hut ho docs not flatter himself that ho has
been fortunate enough to locate the long lost
bonanza , Other experts who started to In
vestigate the district are now on tholr way
to the c.unp and a nnmuor of surveyors have
left Dacgctt. Men in churgo of the expedi
tion are well known and competent Nevada
miners , fully equipped for a prolonged stay
hi the camp.
Concerning the recent discovery of what is
bcllovod to be the celebrated Dreyfoglo. it
would appear altogether probable that this is
the same mine that was discovered over
forty years ago by Louis Musbaumer , now
oefeascd , an old n'nd respected citizen of Ala-
modu county , and for years a resident ol the
Mvcrinoro valley , says the Chronicle.
In thosprlngof ISlSNusbauinerloft Now
Jersey hound for the coast. When ho reached
Salt Lake the train of pralrlo schooners was
120 In number. Their progress was
necessarily low , nnd Nusbaumcr and
six other adventuresome young men
determines to push on to the coast.
Quo of the party , named Smith ,
declared that ho bad made the journey befora
by a short southern route , and offered to loud
them to the promised laud. Tboy abandoned
the wagons anJ , driving some cattle with
them , commenced their fatal Journey across
the alkali plains. It turned out that cither
Smith's story was false or ho had forgotten
Ids bearings , for they soon lost their way and
did not follow any doflulto tfall. Their cat
tle died for want of wntor , and then tholr
horses were also loft to bldach their bones
upon Iho arid , burning , sandy plains of Utah
and Nevada.
Abandoning everything but their guns the
men struggled on to their Inovltnblo doom.
Finding a spring only at rare intervals , and
helng unable to carry nny quanlty of water ,
aid not daring to stop , they were soon In a
terrible condition from thirst and lack of
nourishment. Ono by one the weaker of the
little hr.nd dropped to the ground never to
arise nsnln , nnd wore left to their fate.
In his lifetime M. Nusbaumcr often related
with great feeling the pathetic nnd heart-
rendering Incident * of his awful journoy.
When n mnn foil ho know It was for the last
time , and these who thus perished mot tholr

Dllko is beginning to weigh llko a nlgbtniaro
on the Olndstonlan leader. Having shattered
the Irish alliance in defense of domestic pur
ity , how are they to glvo n cerliilcato of good
moral character to tne Dllho family and the
rest of the harem I Dllko has retried his own
casein a private court and brought in unani
mously a verdict of not guilty. This U in
every way picasimtor than coing Into tbo
witness box on a regular trial and submitting
to cross examination. Dllko declined that or
deal , but his pamphlet has now been sent to
every member of parliament alleging his
complete Innocence. Again the question
arises , wtiat will Gladstone do , having or
dered Parnoll Into retirement for an offense
far loss gross , will the good old mnn
receive UllKo with open nnnsj It is under
stood that Ho has been sounded on tbo sub'
Jcct and came to tbe conclusion not to Inter
fere In any way with Dllko's candidature for
parliament. Ho holds that ho has no right
to dictate to the constituency a choice of
member , hut will not consent to resume any
relations with DilKe , regarding hi ? pamphlet
ns no answer to the verdict of the sworn Jury
approved by Justice iiunner. Most of Dilko's
parliamentary friends look upon his attempt
to force his way buck with disapproval , The
house of commons Is not puritanical hut will
not stand the presence of a man practically
convicted of ngrnvo offense In a court oflaw.
I remember Dllko's efforts to hol'd
his ground in the parliament of 18S3. Ho
cano : every day but was cut dead
by his fellow members. When ho took bis
seat a place soon cleared on each side , aud
In the division , lobbies and smoking roqms
ho stood an Isolated llguro. At last ho had
to give up and so it would bo again.
Meanwhile Parnoll is being mashed by the
Catholic cleriry , and the Sligo election was a
fatal blow. The boast of the antl-Pnrncllltcs
that ho cannot carry a single seat in all Ire
land seems likely to bo Justified by events.
The priests have got him la their power and

The McCartbyltes are highly Jubilant today

Much Interest is being shown in tbo at
tempts of Horatio Bottomhy to get elected to
parliament in spite of bis dubious record In
connection with various public companies
which turned out disas.rously for the un
lucky shareholders. Ono of Uottomby's
schemes was to buy up a lot of rotten Anglo-
American continental papers at rubbish
prices , palm them oft upon British green
horns for 90,000 , , and with 10,000 of work
