An hour or two after the robbery of the old mail a teamster named Cunningham strolled Over to the Quarter infest a by the woman mentioned and he too was robbed of $-50 but for him no sympathy was Felt As he knew where he was going and the kind of people he was going to meet.

I Morrow the citizens of Sumner say that they 1 the subject is one of such Paramount Are heartily sick and tired of having importance that it a Annot he slighted tin dangerous element of the town run j and hence owing to the crowded moralist Lait they seem powerless to interfere. I Hon of our columns the discussion of Date june 2d, i being a has shares taken and w Hile the majority of the Stock remained at Home it was found an easy matter to interest san Francisco capitalists w to at once saw the investment would lie a profitable one.

It it is to be Hie fashion in this part of the country when a Man or woman does Rad like a Uchs Pujic article to thread ii to club the reporter or editor or even kill him. Reporters Ara cheap because the California Market is overstocked w till one lunged Pencil pushers from the East and so pol dislers of tapers Ara not very much worried even if a reporter or two is killed. It makes news for Iii paper and they eau easily get a new Man. The practice if curried out is however jut a Little hard on the reporter.
