A new step.
The traveling public, especially the ladies, will be grateful to learn that the railroad is having the steps on all its passenger coaches made lower by the addition of one more, so that there will be less effort necessary in boarding or alighting a car.

L. J. Hanchett came from Battle Mountain up the small engine called the Go Devil. They left Battle Mountain about 11 o'clock yesterday morning, and after being on the way a short distance the engine did not work well; so that they had much work in making any headway. It took them about 12 hours to make the trip getting to Clifton about 10 o'clock last night. The pump refused to work several times so that they had to stop and fix it. Hastings was the engineer. It was a very disagreeable trip for all parties.

Battle Mountain. Jan 22.

Editor Reveille:- Items have become so scarce here that there is nothing to write about, except what is left of our once flourishing town. It can boast now of only about 100 white inhabitants, 15 Chinamen and several Indian wickiups. It is true that there are two railroad depots, the Nevada Central machine shops, four or five feed and livery stables, four or five hotels, several lodging places, two blacksmith shops, three variety stores, a butcher shop, grocery store or two, six saloons; but to given living support all of these, requires a greater population and better surroundings than here exist. The important problem to be solved by those in business is: "How can I manage to get income(?) to meet expenses?" When will Battle Mountain see better days? is the question with the anxious hangers on in your sister town. It is believed that Battle Mountain has a better future. There are good mines in Lewis, in Galena and Battle Mountain districts that will, it is being believed, contribute to its support at no great distant day. The reports of the sale of the Manhattan and Curtis properties, and the hope that something will be done at Ledlie and Yankee Blade, give to us some encouragement of better times. We of Battle Mountain, in the hope of success to Lander, congratulate the people of Austin in their future prospects. Veritas.
