DETCH, attor- ney for the GoldfieldAthletic Club, enjoys the distinction of havingbeen the second lawyer to arrive in Goldfield. He was born in Indiana, and for several years before coming to Nevada practiced in Colorado, with the law firm of Story & Stevens, prominent lawyers of San Juan County. His practice in the new gold camp grew apace, and he soon acquired an enviable reputation among the mining men of the district. Among the many prominent mines for which he has been attorney are the Original Bullfrog Mines Syndicate, Bullfrog Golden Sceptre Company, the Daisy Mining Syndicate and the Albamarle Mining Company. He is interested, along with William J. Brewer, in one of the richest leases on the Daisy mine. It is estimated that thelease will pay a million and half before the time expires."BEN" ROSENTHAL was President R i c k a r d ' s able aide-de-camp in the missionary work inciden-tal to raising the big fight fund. "Ben" is one of the most popular men in Goldfield. He has always been recognized as a clean-cut, progressive business man, who has the interests of the town near to his heart. He came to Goldfield two years ago, in August, and engaged in the jewelry and drug business. He is a member of the Goldfield Town Council and captain of the local Fire Department.'Ben" Rosenthal"AL" MYERSA.G. MYERS, member of the Board of Directors of the Goldfield Athletic Club, was the first man who found gold in the Goldfield District. He enjoys the distinction of having named the camp and the district, and of having bean its first and only president. He is heavily interested in some of the greatest mines, not alone of Goldfield, but of the newer camps. He has always been recognized as one of Goldfield's most progressive and public-spirited citizens. He enjoys the friendship and esteem of every man of prominence in the country, and in accrediting him with possessions amounting in value to more than a million of dollars, one and all declare that "Al" Myers richly deserves his good fortune. He was the first man approached by President Rickard for a contribution for the purse for the Nelson-Gans contest, and needless to say, he promptly gave up.
