RHYOLITE IS A GREAT PLACE New Town in Bullfrog DintrU-t in KapHlly Taking on City Air. l'KKSONAL. MENTION. Rhyolite, Nev., Mar. 11, 1905. To Tonopah Bonanza: I Rhyolite is one of the most active towns in the Bullfrog district, being situated at a point most convenient to the many mines that surround it and at an . elevation of about 3000 feet. It is midway between Beatty and Amargosa. In thirty days it has grown from half a dozen tents.to a place containing Tour hundred people and that number is increasing every day. ? " ' Rhyolite is not as far from civilization as at first supposed. On March 1st, Mr. H. H. Clark arrived in his automobile, and the rodometer registered 65 miles from Goldfield, the distance having been covered by Mr. Clark to Amargosa in four hours and twenty-five minutes. The telephone line will be extended next week to Rhyolite and Beatty, which will fill a long felt want.'""- Applications have been made for a postofflce, justice of the peace and constable, which appointments are looked for in the near future. At present mad addressed to Rhyolite via Goldfield, arrives twice a week, tne citizens of the town having made arrangements with the stage line. The only drawback Rhyolite has experienced is the lack of water which at present is hauled from the river at $2.50 a barrel, but this difficulty will be overcome in the near future, as several parties are now figuring on bringing water in from different sources and the first sue cessful effort will be received with open arms. All present wants have been very well satisfied, but the con stantly , growing population brings new demands dailyi and there are now several vocations that are not represented. There is room here for a doctor, a drugstore, a shoemaker and tinner. Real estate is active. Corner lots are selling at $1000 and inside lot from 1300 up. The mines are all working and the results are of a most Batterinc nature. A more detailed account will be given next week. The Amargosa Trading Co., (Jno. C. Lynch and T. E. Edwards) has established a lumber yard here and the demand has been greater than the supply. I Mr. Lynch states that they have plenty of lumber on the road between here and Los Vegas, and two or more teams are arriving daily. i Cushman & Elliott have been here recently, and are as active as ever, if not more so. They have secured some valuable mining property and also have several good stunts up their sleeve, which will be made public in the near futuie. Mr. Cush-mau . and Mis.,, Elliott have each erected subsUuiiul frame buildings which will be foremost when completed. The towusite Co. has also completed a frame building which would do credit to Touopuh, and is occupied by Mr. Frank Hunch, who presides over " towusite affairs. Across from this, N. M. Simons has completed his office, which lie opened to the public on February 22nd. , He has a most thoroughly equipped office and the style of architecture is in style with the spirit of progression. ' ' JV-' ' -' Some of Tonopuh's " most active businessmen and the towusite h-u- pie are about to launch a telephone and telegraph system, to lap all the mining cumps in Southern Nevada, and to muke direct connections with San Francisco. Fifteen thousand dollars wus subscribed for thU purpose in Rhyolite alone. John O'Kecfe was a recent arrival und expressed himself in a most sat isfactory manner. It is his intention to put on u stage between here Goldfield within the next thirty days,' which time he says it will take to prepare relay stations. Riiyoute. BUSINESS CARDS. V.' E.
