Tried  to  Kill Hie Mother.
San Francisco, July 7. — While In a

that though she may recover she may be
marked for life.

Mrs. Manning, on Jones and Greenwich
streets. Young Manning came home with
a friend named Taylor. A quarrel ensued, and «_«._ Mis. Maiming attepted
to quiet her sun he dashed a small lamp
in the floor, where it exploded. He theu

Masked Men Easily Pan the Guards—
Ordered the Men at Work to <_ult or
SutTer the Besult-They Did Not Need
the Second Invitation.
Burke, Idaho, July 10.—Under the very
eye of aimed troopers and deputies, a
gang of ruflians have recommenced the
reign of terror which is symbolized by the
murder of Kneebone.
Masked and armed, a little crowd of
desperadoes moved up the canyon aud in
their wake they left grim warnings that
their victims must eilhcr quit work or
suffer the consequences. The Standard,
whieh is being successfully operated by
a crew of Missourians, was the scene of
most of the crimes. Between 1 anil 2
o'clock in the morning three masked men
crept in past the line of sentinels and
made their way to the boiler house. The
Areman, R. L. Hudson, one of the Joplin
miners, was on duty alone. As he turned
from the glare of the furnaces, he was
confronted iu the doorway by the three
men with drawn revolvers. Bach of them
was masked in black calico, which reached
from foil-head to chin. Two holes for the
eyes permitted each of the thugs to see.
Hudson, who is not a timorous soul,
supposed at Brst glance that the visitors
were some of his fellow miners out for a
"Hello," said lie.
For reply one of the gang stepped forward and pressed a piece of crumpled paper into his hand. There, written in lead
pencil on common note paper, was this
"You are hereby warned to leave the
Coeur d'Alenc district by noon tomorrow
or suffer the consequences."
Then Hudson understood, but with calm
self possession he remained at ease.
"I'll get out of here when I get good
and ready," he replied, with a slight smile,
"And I'll let you know when I do."
"You've got till just tomorrow to get
out," replied the leader with a flourish
of his gun.
Hudson was not disconcerted. "What
sire gun is that?" he asked with a placid
curiosity.   "It's a 41."
'"O, pshaw, you can't scare me with a
41," answered the young fellow. "Now if
that had lieen a 44 maybe I would a quit."
Meanwhile the smallest of the three men
had gone over to the compressor house,
a short distance away, where Engineer
Wayne was at work. Through the open
window he tossed a note similar to the one
given Hudson and then returned to his
comrades on guard over thc fireman. A
moment later the three had disappeared
in the darkness as suddenly as they had
A little later in came Wayne, the engineer, white and anxious. He had been
in the Coeur d'Alenes in the old union
days and bad little liking for such warn-
ings. He had seen what resulted. "I'm
going to quit," said the engineer to the
young Mi*soiirian, and he did this illuming.
.Meanwhile a gang had met Ellis Hale
just below linike and after stealing his
tools had warned him to leave on fear of
being "Kneeboned." Hale needed no nee
ond invitation, but took the train for
Montana this morning.
Show Shortage la fault.
New York, July 10.—The Financier
The associated hauls of New York, i!
their statement for the week ending July
8 is to be accepted as correct, have le**
surplus cash on hand than at any tune
(with thc exception of September, 1HIIH.
since the 1S03 panic. The current exhibit
is so complicated by incidents due to July
disbursements and also by the system of
averages employed in making it, that its
totals do not possess the significance that
otherwise might attach to them; the loss
of about $10,000,000 in cash, for instance,
is much more than known operations
called for and the expansion of nearly $7.-
000,000 in loans must reflect previous
weeks' business. The demands for accommodation recently certainly did not
necessitate this violent rise. An the statement stands it plainly indicates that every
dollar of the loans has been taken from
the banks in cash and withdrawal of deposits has been a similar operation. Manifestly this is an impossible contingency.
A more detailed explanation shows that
of thc loss in cash thc National City and
Chase National banks arc responsible for
the entire reduction, the National City'*
loss having been about $0,000,000 and its
increase in loans more than $0,000,000.

Remove lonnlr Officers.
Wallace, Idaho, July 12.—In the removal case* here Judge Stewart found
that the commissioners were guilty of wilful misconduct in allowing bills to the
sheriff in excess of lawful fees, in allow-
lowing percentage for collecting license
money, in issuing saloon licenses without
a'rplicatinn or bonds, in approving the
bonds of county ollieeis without sufficient
sureties, and in failing to take action
when notified of thc probable destruction
of property ut Wardncr. For these he
held them guilty of neglect sufficient to
justify removal.

Notes and Personals.
The gold output of the Transvaal for
1898 was over $81,000,000 and for 1897
over $58,000,000. Thus this little country easily keeps at the head ot the list
of gold-bearing countries. The wonder of It Is that this vast amount ot
gold is produced from a little strip of
territory only 30 miles long and from
one to two miles wide, known as the
"Rand," which is the Boer word for
"slope." This tract lies adjacent to
Johannesburg, the Bcene of the famous
JamicHon raid ot two years ago. The
gold shipments from Cape Town last
week waa over $3,000,000, indicating
the output this year will be greater
than ever.
About 3,500 feet was the aggregate
of work done In this camp In June.
There was a notable lack of push manifested In mining circles last month.

nbout 50 feet.
Twenty-five feet was sunk on the Cuba last month.
About 30 feet of tunnel was driven
on tbe Mabel In June.
The Bhaft on the Chespa Blue Jay
was sunk about 40 feet during June.
The Insurgent was developed by
shaft and drift to the extent of 50 feet,
and a tunnel of 20 feet was run last
The Republic Giant drifted 30 feet
and sank 35 feet of winze in June.
Very rich ore Is being taken from
the face of the Insurgent drift whicli
is now nearly 30 feet inside the Insurgent ground.
Drifts are being run both north and
south from the crosscut tunnel on the
Surprise. Both drifts are In solid ore
of fairly good grade.
Free gold In considerable quantities
was found In the Quilp last week.   The
first six months of 1899. As the new
eight-hour mining law went into effect
June 1st and nearly every mine ln the
Slocan has been closed since that date,
the shipments really represent the
work of only five months.
The Iron Mask, which ls one ot the
few remaining large mines ln Rossland
that ls owned by Spokane people, ls preparing to make regular shipments of
ore, and it .s rumored that the mine
may become a dividend payer before
the first of January, 1900.
S. L. Long, superintendent of the
Porto Rico mine and mill, at Porto Rico, was in Rossland recently. Mr. Long
reports the mine and mill are In full
operation and that the clean-ups are of
a satisfactory nature.
In the Good Hope, near Ymlr, 100

The Green Mountain property, ono
mile north of Rossland, is looking most
satisfactory. The shaft Ib now down
to a depth of 170 feet. It ls passing

Ib widening as depth is gained. The
ore from this ledge is quartz carrying
iron and copper pyrites and some gold.
Work on the Evening Star at Rossland Is making excellent progress.

Concerning the great United Verde
copper mine of Jerome, Arizona, owned
by W. A. Clark, of Montana, that gentleman estimates the output per year
between $5,000,000 and $8,000,000, and
says at the present price of copper the
copper product alone is over $1,000,000
a month, to say nothing of the gold and
silver that the ore carries. The daily
output of copper he places at 100 tons,
or 200,000 pounds, and the monthly
output being 6,000,000 pounds.
The Seven Devils district in Idaho is
attracting a large amount of attention
this season and work is being done on
a number of properties. The district
is well known to be one of the richest
in the northwest, but its development
has been sadly retarded through lack
of transportation facilities.
The question of the right of an original locator to relocate a mining claim
upon which he has failed to perform
the amount of assessment work, or to
place an equivalent in improvements,
as required by law. Is an important
one. This question came up before the
supreme court of Utah and the court
decided that an original locator had
such right. It is a recognized fact that
a prior locator may renew his location
by resuming work. While the court
in this instance recognised the right
of the prior locator to relocate, it
should be understood that It also requires that assessment work should not
only be resumed but completed in order
to assure possession.
Speaking of our mines, says the
Grangeville Free Press, it must be said
that they In the main represent individual enterprise, and with the limited
means at the command of tbe owners lt
sometimes takes years to get them in
shape for production. There are probably five hundred men in Idaho counry
who are working on placers in the
gulches and streams of Idaho county,
throughout the all too short water season, and their combined product aggregates $500,000 annually.

Should matters so adjust tlietu.elvea
in political circles as to bring about an
early appeal to the country, the candidate who hesitates in endorsing tho
eight hour amendment, must be prepared for defeat. The country is in

that the Miner argnes the ovil effects
of the Eight Hour law. Now. Capt.
Duncan may be posted on many subjects, but what he doesn't know about
the Silverton mines is a lot. Thc
bond on the Noondiy, to which ho refers, is for $35,000. and runs for over
a year yet, At tbe rate at which the
ore is being shipped to the smelter, the
mine will pay the bond in thirty days.
Is it likely then, that the bonders will

The Captain wishes to show that the
Noonday would, it possible, shut down
in sympathy with tbe Queen Bess and
other dividend payers. Considering
that one of the owners, under thi bond,
is President of the local Union, is that
probable ? As for the rest of the
statements, we publish below a list of
"shut down" properties and the number of men they are at present employing, at days wages or at contracts, fur
whicli they are guaranteed $3.50 for
the eight hour shift, Tlie Vancouver
alone, is shut down to spite the lawmakers. Besides the properties |fiv0_,
numerous otheis are employing two or
three men each.

The Nelson Miner prints a special
despatch from New Denver, working
itself into a passion over the action of
the Minister of Mines in •■summarily"
dismissing Gold Commissioner Sproat.
This action has been expected for
months, and the Miner's correspondent must have known, if he was at
all posted in tho matter, that no salary was provided, in the estimates, for
a Oold Commissioner at New Denver.
It was expected that Mr. Sproat would
rea:gn on or before June 30th last, but
at be evinced a desire to work for
nothing, as this is what his retention
of office amounted to, he was notified
that his services wer-** no longer required. The Miner is hard up for a
chance to abuse the Minister of Minea.
The Gold Commissioner's office in the
Slocan was merely created during last
year's election, for political purposes.
If the Miner would familiarize itself
with its subjects, it would publish less
There are still some people left, win

politicians, and will end in—talk. The
Eight Honr Law places British Columbia abreast of the times and in the
front rsnk of progressive states. It
has been favorably received by a big
majority of the electorate, many who
st first wero opposed to the measure,
being now active in its support. The
government would he indeed short-
