Many old settlers will remember Bennett Justice of the peace of Washoe township from 1862 to 1865, whose decisions if not always governed by the strict letter of the Law were at least in accordance with Justice and equity. In 1864, when Tom Fitch was a member of the bar of Washoe county he often fell into Justice Bennett s court. On one occasion Jim Pierson proprietor of the Pierson House sued Jake Ackerman lying Jake for a Board Bill. Jake employed Fitch to defend the suit and the Case came on for hearing.

Said the reporter it is As Clear As a Bell i can t see any signs of a storm what do you base your opinion on do you see that flock of blackbirds huddled up Over there by the asked the Farmer Well whenever you see those Birds moping around like that you Cau bet a storm will be Fitch in Cross examination. In the Spring of 1862, and he never paid a answered pie Sou. Then your sail Miteb addressing the court we move to dismiss the Case and ask judgment for costs. From the testimony of the plaintiff himself the action is barred by the statute of limitations which provides that All suits for the recovery of Money on contracts not in writing must be brought within two years next preceding the time the cause of action arose and it is shown by the in contradicted sworn evidence of Pinion himself that the claim Jug now two years and four months pie son address is the court. Your Sah Pierson i Ain t no lawyer and i m glad of it. If i was a lawyer and Ever got so Low Down that i would stand up in a court of Justice to defend a Lazy whelp like lying and try to cheat an honest Man out of a grub Bill just because he had waited Over two years to get it i would go off and join the diggers. What can this Greasy missourian eat my grub sleep in my bed drink my whisky and then get a one horse bamboozle judge into the belief that be Bill is too old to be Good if that is Law it Ain t no Justice and this is a Justice court your Honor you must not take any Stock in what this Feller Fitch says anyway he Ain t no lawyer he s a newspaper what does he know about Law does it follow that because he is a big liar he is a Good lawyer he better go Back to Virginia City and stick to his old Trade. We won t have any foolish Ness Down Here. If men Ain t got no Money to pay their grub Bills it s All right but when they stand Lily declared that in order to secure a sufficient number of eligible men to carry of to Victory the struggle of Ireland in the British parliament a fund will be required to enable men who could not other Wise leave Ireland to reside in London and give their attention to parliamentary duties that it is a requirement reasonable and just As will appear from a Uriel stateroom of facts. Unlike members of our National Congress the Mem Bers of the House of commons receive no salary. Of its 640 members All but a Small minority chiefly Irish Are in the enjoyment of in comes without toil either As hered itary landlords Pla Cymek under the Crown of agents of monopolies. The Irish National party can carry probably seventy seats in if the fund required is subscribed. Some const tue quiet will provide for their own representatives. A greater number will be unable to do so because the vast majority of electors Are themselves bread win ners while the land which in the chief source of profit is held by resident landlords or absentees who will Combine to carry As Many seals As possible for creatures of their own. To meet the lawful expenses of the approaching general election and to assist in formation of a parliamentary party the Irish National league of America invites contribution from the supporters of Charles Stewart Parnell of his policy and of his purpose which is to recover the right of the Irish people to make their own jaws on their own soil. Subscriptions May is sent to the Rev. Charles o Reilly d. D., treasurer Detroit Michi Gan. Eugene Kelly the new York banker has authorized president Sullivan to head the list with his subscription of valuable inc of Kra. An old prospector discovers up Aud say that because you trusted pm too Long they Dou t owe you any thing e won t stand it. Do you hear we won t stand May it please your said Fitch i do not wish to reply to he gentleman. I will rely upon the statute and insist upon my to opinion of the court. It is the opinion of the court that the statute of limitation is unconstitutional. I think the longer a Man owes a debt the More he ought to pay but your said Fitch the supreme court of this state has already upheld the constitutionality of the it Don t make no difference to replied the judge the supreme court Don t have no jurisdiction Over this court. Judgment for Well your returned Fitch Good Nat redly i admit that under certain Circum stances the decisions of the supreme court would not be applicable to Justice s courts that is to say Here might be some justices whose intellectual capacity was so imperfectly illuminated that the obtuse Egal propositions embodied in the opinions of jurisprudential writers could not be made applicable or in ther words when a Justice is a fool there Are no precedents which he is obliged to follow. These Etu arks of course Are not intended or you judge Beurett i Only state hem As abstract principles of of course not said the judge the court will now stand and Coal vein free from John Poe is probably one of the most indomitable prospectors in this part of the country. There is hardly a Gulch or Mountain in Western Nevada but what be has traversed and has pointers on.

The formation in which it is traced is very favourable and tests made of the float prove it to be free from Sulphur. The location in which this. Valuable find is made is convenient to the contemplated line of the Quincy narrow Guage. The discovery was made very late in the season and consequently no work in the Way of development has been done but or. Poe quietly interested some Reno gentlemen in the after and he starts to night for the location to com Mence development. Should this prove a veritable Coal vein comparatively free from Sulphur it will be of great value both to the owners As Well As this Section of the coun try for with the narrow gauge extended As now contemplated the facilities for cheap transportation will be Complete.
