No. 1! Dateline Carson City, December 15th, 1876. Issued to DO Mills for 250 shares. Signed by Henry Yerington as president and E. Niles, secretary. Signatures are star punch cancelled. Not endorsed by Mills. Black border and print on yellow paper with vignette of fluming operation (possibly meant to be Lake Tahoe in the background). Printed by Geo. Baker Lith. SF. 6 x 9.75" Folds. Yerington constructed the first flume for sending wood and timber down the mountains; built the Carson yard for the timber and flume companies, including the Eldorado Wood and Flume Company, through which they delivered a large portion of wood and timber for the Comstock mining companies. The flume came into the valley at Brown's Station and Washoe City. Both of these locations were on the V&T Railroad that Yerington was the president of! The company also owned timber lands in Markleeville/Hope Valley. DO Mills was co-founder of Bank of California and part-owner of the Virginia & Truckee Railroad and thus had close ties to Yerington.
