condemn tbe press of the minins camps
of B C for these troubles are either
fools, knaves or idiots. The press has
done more to bring capital into the
country, to build it up and advertiseiits
resources to the world, than all the
other industries in it, mining included.
The country is here, the press is-here;
anyone who don't like them can move
out. The country can't be.beat,, the
press—well, if it isn't quite "proper" it
is fair and free and honest.

Death will sometimes soften a heart
that has been hard as adamant for
years, and men who have with coldness
and indifference forced hardship and
sorrow upon thousands in their tyranny
of greed, will be brought low by a single blow dealt by the black monster at
a friend or relative. Au illustration of
this was seen at the death bed of President McKinley, Senator Hanna, a man
of tremendous power over men, who
has been pictured by the cartoonists of
the world as a man of dollar heart and
cent soul, was taking a last look at his
dying friend. Suddenly he dropped to
his knees at the bedside and, peering
into the President's unresponsive face,
said in tones that never will be forgotten
hy those within hearing: "Mr. President, Mr. President, can't you see me?
TTcWrvoTTknuw liTeV'
rlTere was no
response, and the stillness became painful 119 the sobbing senator exclaimed:
"William, William, speak to tne!" He
was raised from the bedside and led
from the room, a grief-stricken monarch. What a softening there must
have been to a heart like Kaunas!

President Roosevelt is lo years old.
His life has been one of varied experiences, and more or less associated with
politics since 1881. though ho never
succeeded in winning any important
ollice until nftei* his return fiom the
light at Santiago three years ago, when
he was elected governor of New York.
From this to the vice-presidency was a
short step. Mr. Roosevelt is a man of
strong personal attachments. Ho has
been twice married and has a family of
live children Two years after his first
marriage, he lost his wife, and his
mot her died the same week, In his be
roiivenieni he broke loose from New
York life, and went to the wilds of Mini

that their \chief executive has been
struck dowa by the assassin's bullet it
is high time that the public should
"uphold" them. If the public was not
so numerous it would gladly pass up its
plate for a dainty inoreel of the sizzling
flesh of Shulla'uss. Torture! Aye,
torture and damn him seven times
round. Scourge him with irons and let
him rest in a bed of salt. Disjoint him
at every knuckle; gouge out his eyes;
draw every muscle into shreds, and
when his tongue can say no more, put
him into the electrical chair and scientifically murder him. "This is a peculiar case, and it demands peculiar
treatment." And, besides, the public
will "uphold" it

Since the assassination of President
McKinley thare has been an earnest
discussion of suggested ways and means
proposed to better protect the man in
the position of chief executive of the
republic. One suggestion is that murderous assault upon the executive of
the United States, or even state governors, should be made a capital crime,
irrespective of results. Another is that
the free and indiscriminate access of
crowds of unknown individuals to the
person of the President to give him the
_lad hand should be prevented. These
suggestions  are  good,   especially   the

he put in a glass case, as a thing too sacred to touch, but as a matter of common justice and decency, the chief executive should not be forced to stand up
for hours and be pump-handled by
every sentimental fool with a handshake up liis sleeve. It is cruel to make
any man do that. Such a ceremony is
meaningless Tt is idiotic. Aside from
the danger that is attached to it from
such men as Shiillguss, there is the
torture of it. And what for? Just to
allow a host of cranks, men or women,

may never have seen him before and
never expect to meet him again, but
thoy will talk about it for years and die

however. There is n distinction, but
no difference Pope Leo may he criticised for allowing his subjects to kiss

life of seclusion. If he were to taken

A week or two ago a carload of 21 tons
of ore was shipped from the Capella,
the Goat Mountain property recently
purchased by Wills & MeNayght. After
paying a freight and treatment rate of
$9 a ton, the ore gave returns of $3,996.
Such returns will have a tendency to
wake up capital with its eyes toward
Goat Mountain. The Capella is a dry
ore property, and is the only one on the
mountain that has been developed to
any extent. The ore that was shipped
was taken from the tunnel that is being
run on the lead. The ore was encountered shortly after the tunnel was started, and has been continuous for about
150 feet. No stoping has been done
The tunnel is still being pushed ahead,

Fifteen tons of ore was sent out from
the Ruth Thursday. Sixty tons have
been taken out in the course of development. This will be shipped as it is
packed down, and the prospects for continued and increased shipments are very
bright.
Ore is being packed down from the

output from these properties will be
greatly increased this winter.

The contract work on the California
ceased last week, and the mine has
closed pending resumption of work by
day labor, when shipments of ore will
begin, On this property 170O feet of
tunnels, raises and drifts have been run.
The ore shows from the surface to No.
4 tunnel, a distance, of 240 feet. There
is one raise of 150 feet from No. il to No,
2 tunnel, and one of (U feet from No. I
to No. 3. The ore averages from -1 to 8
inches in width. A good strike was
recently made in No. l raise.
In the past it lias cost flu to 1*12 a ton
to transport ere from the mine to New
Denver, but when a train in put iu to
the wagon road the cost will be $l,lu a

every Thursday and has never been raided by the sheriff, snowslided by cheap silver, or subdued by the fear of man. It works for the trail
blazer as well as the bay-windowed and champaKiie-flavqri.'d capitalist. It aims to be on the rijjht si.lo of overythinK and believes that hell
should be administered to the wicked in laree doses. It has stood the test of time, and an ever-increasing pnystrenk is proof that It is
better to tell the truth, even if the heavens do occasionally hit onr smokestack, A chute of job work is worked occasionally for the benefit
of humanity and the financier. Come in and see us. but, do not pat the bull .log on the cranium, or chase tho black cow from our water

\
martyred U. $. Presidents
\
The shooting of President Mc
Kinley resembles in many respects
the assassination of President Garfield in 1881. His assailant, Chas.
J. Guiteau, was one of the thousands of persistent hunters of office
who pestered President Garfield.
He appeared in Washington during
Garfield's visit there before the inauguration, and construed, or pretended to construe, a promise to
see him again into the promise to
grant him an appointment as consul
at Marseilles.
The day after the inauguration
Guiteau called at the White House
to see President Garfield, but did
not find him there.    He then wrote
to the President, asking an interview,to which he received no reply.
He then followed   the   President
closely, wherever he went,and stood
outside for hours and watched the
houses where the President called,
waiting for a chance to press his
suit for an oflice.    Again and again
he intruded himself upon the President, who, after becoming convinced
of the man's unfitness for official
position, frankly refused to grant the
petition.    Guiteau was very angry,
and refused to be satisfied with two
or three denials; and at last he became so insulting in his demeanor
that the President, after a most remarkable display of patience,ordered the officers at the White House
to expel the intruder.aud refuse him
admittance should  he attempt to
enter again.    Mortified at his failure to obtain the coveted  appointment, and angry beyond expression
because,of his forcible ejection from
the White House, he determined to
have revenge.     Various   schemes
suggested themselves to him,according to his own  confession, which
would bring disgrace and  failure
upon the administration .and shame
~—^iipori-the~President^biiu*none~\vouid
or could satisfy him but the murder
of President Garfield. Once, it is
said,he followed the President from
the White House to the residence
of Secretary Blaine, dodging along
from dark corners and skulking by
stone balustrades; and the peaceful,
confident head of the nation walked
^cheerfully by those hiding-places,
and Guiteau, with his revolver
cocked, could not muster the
strength to pull the trigger. At
another time he followed the President's carriage to the railway station, determined to delay the deed
no longer; but when the affectionate
husband lifted his wife from the
carriage, and Guiteau saw her thin
one side the assassin took a surer
aim, and fired the second time with
deadly effect.   The second bullet
entered the President's side, tore
through the spine,  and remained
lodged in the flesh.   The horrified
spectators rushed to the wounded
man, seized the assassin, and for a
time there was the greatest confusion and terror.    But soon the doors
were shut to keep out the excited
crowd, surgical aid called for the
President, and the assassin hurried
away to the jail.    The surgeons
called to aid the President declared
at once that the shot must be fatal,
and ordered the fainting and bleeding man carried by ambulance to
the White House.
When the President had lingered
and suffered at the White House
for more than two months, holding
on to life with an almost miraculous tenacity; and suffering incessantly the acutest pain, a council of
noted physicians was called to consider the advisability of removing
him from the heat and malaria of
Washington:
He had lost more than one hundred pounds in weight, and had
become so weak that it did not
seem possible that, without a change,
he could survive many days. He
longed to get away from the place
in which he had suffered so much,
and. as there seemed no hope for
him there, tlie physicians consented
to undertake his removal to Long
Branch, on the Xew Jersey shore.
His removal for so many hundred
miles in his dangerously low state
was one of the most remarkable
feats of modern days. The railroad
company laid a track to the White
House in Washington, and another j
track to the cottage which kind
friends furnished for him at the
shore; so that he was taken from
hdoWttRlbor fir~aTr~elegan~t, com™
found on both sides, with bronchopneumonia of the lower portions of
the right lung, and. though to much
less extent, of the left.    The lungs

the crowd in the rear of the dress-
circle, and made his way to the
passage leading to the  President's
heart no clots. The liver was enlarged and fatty, but free from abscesses. Nor were any found in
any other organ except the left
kidnev
box.    He showed a card  to a ser*
which  contained near its! vant in attendance,and was allowed
surface a small abscess, about one- ] to pass in.    He entered noiselessly,
and, turning, fastened the door with
third of an inch in diameter.
Guiteau,the assassin, was charged
with murder, and after a sensational
trial, which lasted for several days,
and during which the defendant
sought to escape the penalty of his
crime by pleading insanity, he was j
convicted and sentenced to be
hanged on June 30, 1882.
Secretary of State John Hay, in
the biography which he wrote in
collaboration with John G. Nicolay,
gives a graphic account of the
assassination of Abraham Lincoln
at Ford's Theatre on April 14,18G5.
He was at one time an assistant-
secretary and aid-de-camp to Lincoln.    He writes:
"Lincoln was fond of the theatre;
it was one of his few means of recreation. Besides, the toiyn was
thronged with soldiers and officers,
all eager to see him; it was represented to him that appearing occasionally in public would gratify
many people whom he could not
otherwise meet. Mrs. Lincoln had
asked -General and Mrs. Grant to
accompany her; they had accepted,
aud the announcement that they
would be present was made as an
advertisement in the evening papers
but they changed their minds and
went north by an afternoon train.
Mrs. Lincoln then invited in their
stead Miss Harris and Major Henry
the bar he had  previously made
ready, without disturbing any of
the occupants of the box,, between
whom and  himself there yet  remained the slight partition and the
door through which he  had  bored
the hole.   Their eves were fixed
upon the stage; the play was "Our
American   Cousin,"   the  original
version   by   Tom   Taylor,   before
Sothern had made a new work of it
by his elaboration of tlie part of
Dundreary.    Partisan hate and the
fumes of brandy had for weeks kept
his brain in a morbid state.    He
felt as if he were playing Brutus
off the boards; he posed, expecting
applause.    Holding a pistol in one
hand and a knife in the other, he
opened the box-door, put the pistol
to the President's head, and  fired;
dropping the weapon, he took  the
knife in his right hand, and, when
Major Rathbone sprang  to   seize
him, he struck savagely at him.
Major Rathbone received the blow
on his left arm,   suffering a  wide
and deep wound.    Booth,  rushing
forward, then placed his left hand
on the railing of the box and vaulted lightly over  to the stage.    It
was a high leap,   but  nothing to
such a trained athlete.    He would
have got away safely,   but  for his
spur catching in  the  folds of the
R.   Rathbone,   the   daughter   and j Union Hag with which the front of
stepson of Senator Ira Harris.   Thej the box was draped.    He fell  oil
fail; but his face even then  was
scarcely more haggard  than  those
of the sorrowing group of statesmen
and   generals   around him.     His
automatic moaning, which had continued through the night, ceased; a
look  of   unspeakable peace came
upon his worn   features.    At  7:22
he died.    Stanton broke the silence
by saying: "Xow he belongs to the
ages."    Dr. Gurley kneeled by the
bedside and prayed fervently.   The
widow came in from the adjoining
room, supported by her son Robert,
and cast herself with  loud  outcry
on the dead body.
Booth was tracked and pursued
by troops, and, on the night of
April 25th, a party under Lieut.E.
P. Doherty surrounded a barn on
Garrett's farm near Bowling Green,
where the assassin and one of his
confederates, D. K. Herold, were
sleeping:
When called upon to surrender,
Booth refused, and a parley took
place, lasting some minutes. Booth
offered to fight the party at a hundred yards, and, when this was refused, cried out, in a theatrical
tone: "Well, my brave boys, prepare a stretcher for me." Doherty
surrendered. The barn was fired,
and. while it was burning, Booth,
who was clearly visible b}T the flames
through the cracks in the building,
was shot by Boston Corbett, a sergeant of cavalry, a soldier of a
gloomy and fanatical disposition
which afterward developed into insanity.

and pleasure of being in a new-
place and amid new scenes. Although the President at first rallied
slightly, he gradually sank until,
on September 1 Ut li. he passed away.
The immediate cause of < iarlield's
death was for some time a matter
of dispute among physicians;  but
hands and pale, sweet face, he was the day after his death a post-mor-
defeatcd again;   and,  stuffing his
revolver in his pocket, said:    "I'll
wait till she is better." He pondered over the mutter, making
careful calculations on the elTect of
the President's death, and planned
how to avoid tho rage of the mob
which the murder would be likely
to raise. He wrote a letter beforehand to tumoral Sherman, to be
delivered to him at once after the
murder, asking for troops to protect him at the jail.
On Friday, the first day of July,

President intended to take the train

When  the operation   was   performed, it was found that the hall,
after fracturing the right eleventh
rib, has passed through  the spinal
column, fracturing the body of the
first  lumbar vertebrae,  driving a
number of small fragments of bone
into the adjacent soft parts, and
lodging just below  the |iaiiereas,
about two inches and a half to thc
left of the spine and behind the
peritoneum, where  it   had heroine
completely encysted.   The immediate cause of death  was secondary
hemorrhage from one of the mesenteric arteries adjoining the track
of the Will, the blood rupturing the
peritoneum, and nearly a pint escaping into the abdominal cavity.

the city of Nelson, who has the foolish
idea that the world, including* its proverbial fence, was arranged under his
special direction, and only for his own
individual cheek, was recently found
disseminating the following sentiments,
which have been arranged in poetical
form by one of Nelson's rising authors:
The sun gets up to see me walk,
To gaze upon this form of mine;
And if I did not venture forth
T would not be worth his while to shine.
The earth is honored by my tread,
The flowers bloom for me to'smell ;
The fruits are for my chief delight,
All nature suit? me passing well.
The ladies, bless their simple hearts,
How they adore and fawn on m«;
•  They put forth all their little arts—
Their motives I can plainly see.
Dear girls, it is of no avail,
My heart is proof against your charms,
I cannot throw myself away,
1 must resist your outstretched arms.
Tho author of the above versification,
who has immortalised the sentiments of
the gentleman referred to, happens to
be a lady, and her reply to his effusions
has been forwarded to the said individual.   Here it is:
Oh, Maggie, Annie, come and see.
Here iB that too-conceited swell,
Who thinks the world was made for
Him, and that he runs all nature well.
Look at him as he struts along,
With head in air and cane in hand,
And coat-tails flying in the air,
And stylish hat arid manners grand.
He simpers at each dame and girl,
There's self-conceit in every hair:
He thinks that he can throw the glove
To any woman, dark or fair.
It makes one smile to see his airs,
It makes one frown to meet his gaze;
He lives to worship—just himself—
And sing and shout his daily praise.
Ho thinks he's king bird of the flock;
Ho stares about him like,an owl;
While we, we know in spite of all,
He's just a common barnyard fowl.

Miss Ruby Parr,an Indiana beauty,

Miss Ruby desired to marry her
soul's affinity, but he had no cash.
Her father had dollars to spare, but
did not look with favor upon the
lover ot his daughter, and intimated
that if the marriage took place the
happy couple need not expect any of
his cash. Miss Ruby managed to get
kidnapped al'out that timo and her
father received a letter demanding
$4,000 for her return. The young
lady took the blood of chickens and
smeared her face and when found

You never heard of our customers kicking; not
much! They all get 'white treatment', big and little
alike, that's why. The man we have never seen,
who sends his orders by mail.is served with the same satisfaction as the man
who buys over our counters. The "best in the house" goes out on memo if the
customer orders "the best in the house." We're not afraid of losing outright
sales between the going out and coming back of the goods,   ^betoro tho°riS£tfh&

a scheme would ordinarily have
proved successful, but the old gentle-1
man sent a det( ctive to the scene in- \
stead of the $4,000. Miss Ruby has
confessed that she wrote the letter
and that her only object in doing so
was to get money for the support oi
herself and her intended husband.
