HOUSE - SATURDAY AFTERNOON
CARSON, February 13
An Act to incorporate the Virginia, Gold Hill, Washoe and Car son railroad.
[More railroads, you observe. The Council killed the Virginia and Dayton Railroad bill the other day. That franchise was well guarded, and the road would have been built. Will this, or any of the others? - REP.]
Mr. Barclay moved to lay the bill on the table. Lost.
The bill then passed by the following vote: [ayes 11, noes 9].
