Death – Robbery

CARSON, December 1. – Hon. Charles S. Potter, member of the Constitutional Convention, from Washoe County, died at his residence at three o’clock P.M., to-day. The Convention adjourned over tonight, in consequence.

A teamster was murdered and robbed on the public highway, between Carson and Virginia, to-day. Our sprightly and efficient officers are on the alert. They calculate to inquire into this thing next week. They are tired of these daily outrages in sight of town, you know.
