ARLINGTON   MILL   NOW  CRUSHING GOOD ORE.  Property   ia   Such Shape  That Shipments Will Provide" All Funds  Required for Development.  I  The Hastings (British Columbia) Exploration Syndicate . is ��� meeting with  every success in tho development of the  Arlington, group of claims in the-Brie  neighborhood, and the syndicate is now  entering 11:1011 the period '���when returns may bo expected. .The concentrator and tramway,- recently erected;  are -working smoothly, and the property is now in"such shape that the product "of the-mill, from ore taken out  solely in the way of development/ will  provide sufficient to keep up the management's present program for. thoroughly  opening up; tho property.  The  syndicate  has,-11  claims  in  the  Arlington group upon which operations  have been carried on for the past two  or three years, there being upwards of-  (iOOO  feet  of  prospecting  and   development work done upon the gioup in this  tune.    This,    genoially    speaking,    has  bliown   that  the  vein  on   tho  property  is,- rather" flat, 'nnd."tliat the . ore body  is somewhat irregulir.   The greater part  of thc: work ^consists of tunnels, and so  far   the  greatest  depth   attjincd   upon  the \ein is 170 feet.   The values in the  ore are chielly gold, and it was largely  with a view~to e:\perimcntnig with their  ticatment that the present stamp mill  or concentrator.Svas erected. The values  secured are in a quaitz carrying iron  pyrites, with a little zinc blend'and galena, but cai rying as a rule no free gold.  It   appears   to   bo   amenable   to   coarse  concentration, which gives a very high  class   concentrate   with   values   clnelly  in gold and considerable silver values  The   piesent   mill   is,   a   comparatively  small atfan, but it will answer the purpose  for  which  it  was  built and  will  treat about 30"or <10 tons' per day, ac-  ing to the character of the ore.' There  is some of the oro which  the management will ship in its crude state, and  this with,, the concentrates from the mill  aie at present coming to. the  Nejsbn  emclter fof-trer-tment,*-   j.,.-      .-���,  >    '.  The mill itself Ms''sbme'vvliat':Unimtiar  -ii its construction and design for ,this  country, in that Tremaine,steam stamp-*  aro  used  for crushing the ore."    These  in the opinion of the management were  considered to be preferable to any other  form of crushing, and the experience so  far has upheld this view.    The course  of tieatmcHt  in  the Arlington  mill  is  as follows-   The ore passes from the bin  nt the lower  terminal of the liamway  out on a sorting-belt, where the clean  /'ore and waste -slate are sorted, out by  hand.    The ore  that is  to   be concentrated is then passed to a Dodge crusher,  and   from  theie  to  a  No.   1  Tremaine  steam   stamp,. where   it   is -crushed' so  that it will pass thiough a No. 5 mesh  screen. * It is then elevated to trommels  or revolving screens, where, it is sized  for the jigs into which it passes.    The  jigs have three -products, "clean concentrates,   clean   tailings    and    middlings.  The middlings areTthen:recrushed in a  No, 2 Tremaine;:stamp, so that it will  pass   through   a   25   mesh   screen,   and  from-this-to-a^Wilfley-table-and-frue-  vanncr'.    One of the reasons why the  Tremaine stamps were decided upon" for  the crushing of tlie ore was. owing to  the.presence'of considerable quantities  of slate. They are used extensively upon  a large-scale in the crushing of copper  ores in the state of Michigan, but the  Arlington syndicate is the first to experiment with  them  on a  small  scale  foi*: the crushing of gold rock.  Tho .tramway from the mine to the  mill also has some new features in the  way of mine trams. It is a two-bucket  tram, with a span of 2100 feet, and is  nt present moving 50 tons of ore in the  day of 10 hours/the carrying capacity of  oach bucket being 1100 pounds. Not  only Is the tramway giving every satisfaction, but the. management has also  tho satisfaction of knowing that they  have probably the cheapest tramway  over built'in the province Cor its size.  An'old cable from the Hall Mines tramway wn3 used for the stationary rope,  and the entire' cost was within ?2300.  The English syndicate that is developing the Arlington is probably the most  conservative operating in the -proyincdi'  'It has ample capital paid up for all.pur-'  poses,*-and has quietly, pursued its poi^  icy /of, thorough development..and atr,'  tractod as little"attention fj-.ani, the public as possible. -Now that everything is'  in order, and working smoothly, regular  shipments will be made, but there is. no  necessity for 'crowding the property,'  which: will continue to be developed to.  the best advantage without respect to  its output. There are now'employed at  the mine and mill about 45 men, and in  the milling of the ore already available,!  and of. such as will be taken out in further proving up the property, it is expected .that an output of from GO to 100  tons per. month of high grade concentrates will be maintained, which will  have a value sufficient to provide for the  future development of the property and  carry something over to the profit account as well. The development of the  Arlington has been peculiarly difficult,  hut' the syndicate has been remarkably  fortunate in the choice of the men whom  it has entrusted with the work of opening the property up, two of whom,  Messrs. Bucke and Mackenzie, were pro-  vented by death from witnessing the  fruits of their well directed labors.  It is reported from East Kootenay  that J. J. Fluetot has taken a number  Tricks of Brokers.  ST. LOUIS, July 17��� Sensational admissions, have been'made-on the stand  by Samuel A. Gaylord, senior member  of the firm of G-tylbrd, Blessing & Co.,  which failed recently; -Mr. Gaylord, who  is one.of the oldest.stock brokers here,  admitted at. the hearing . before bankruptcy referee Coles that the firm had  been practically.insolvent for two years  and: had been doing business,on funds  secured from local customers. Deals  wherein ."ho...stock, over changed ..hands,  being -i. mere matter of bookkeeping, in  which- the -firm never forgot to charge  up- commissions, margins and interest,  were admitted by Mr. Gaylord, who also  told of the employment of relatives'  names arid the.use-of an- insane man'.--,  namo::n the accounts. At.the. tP-ne of  the failure* they were short $150,000 in  bonds, face value, and over 6000 shares  of stock in New York; 7 It was ^admitted  by the witness that the failure wasdue  to their own speculation,* by which they  had hoped to win out and pay off their  indebtedness,-estimated to .have been  something near $200,000. As to the missing collateral, .left with the "firm" by  customers, attached to promissory notes,  Mr. Gaylord admitted that all.had been  hypothecated with > banks as securities  for loans to-the firm.  ALMOST $300,000 A  DAY  IS THE ESTIMATED  COST Or THE  STEEL WORKERS' STRIKE.  Situation Yesterday in the Industrial  Centers Affected���English Interest in the Struggle,  SNAKE RIVER PLACER MINES  Confirmation of Rich Finds.  BAKER CITY, Ore., July 17.���The dispute as to the find of gold in the basin  of the Snake river, above Ontario, is  settled beyond dispute, in the opinion  ;of David Wilson,, a well known- mining  man .who is bf.ek direct-.'from the scene  of the big strike, and confiims all that  lias: been said of: the riches of the new  Eldorado.  "I have beon operating on these low  bars .on the Snake river for fine gold for  many years," he said.    "Mr. Singer, on  whoso   propeity   the "recent   rich   dis-  coveiy   was   made,   has   been   working  theie for the  past six  years or more."  He ha-* undertaken to sink a, shaft to  'bedrock,  but it is almost like putting  a well in tho bed of the river.    He is-  -now down  S7 feet.-   I saw Mr.  Singer  in   Spokane ^"on   the   Fourth.    He   told  me   that  they  struck  values,   partially  in Ireo gold, at a depth of between  10  and 50-feet,'and that they found prac-  .tically continuous values until, a depth  of S7 fee't \vas reached, and tliat th'e val-  fues> wer���e greater at the lower depth*5  .-"thanJhlgher\up.���, The-assaysTqf'-tlie ore.,  ^weut Jiom* $4   te--i��13- ,per   ton? whicli  would be $7 to. ?23���per cubic yard. Thes*-  valuos wore, obtained in a conglomerate  rock  or   cement  formation  thnt  's   rf  hard that it. requires..to be blasted, and  there is every  reason  to suppose thai  the  same  formation  practically-.underlies that entire basin or territory...'..Mi*.  Singer's idea was'that'the whole basin  was  a   lake   bed  at  one   time.     I  saw  ,T. S: Camp,' an engineer who has, loca'tec"  about 3500 acres, arid has done his worl  very thoroughly .and systematically. Hr  is   evidently   the  agent  of  some  large  syndicate that has'plenty of money to  -put. up.   He .told me that he found ���joinc  conglomerate rock taken from the bottom of a well 42 feet deep, located near  Roswell, and  got -an assay from  it  ol  $60.50-in.gold arid $3 in silver to the ton  It was'the same kind of rock found-by  Mr. Singer...- There are no towns.or im  provements in the territory.    I, should  say that at least a thousand location*?  have been made in the basin.   Mr. Sing-  _or_stated_that_thejargei*_portion-of_the_  gold is shot.gold, coarser than the ordinary Snake river fine gold, and average?  $17 to the ounce, while the other-gold  runs  only  from   $12  to  $14.    About  a  month ago-I visited Mr. Baxter, assayer  at Boise, who told.me that when Robert  Wilson"sunk a well at the'Boise natato-  rium  for. hot water, and also when ������"ii  well  was sunk at the penitentiary, lie  struck at a depth of 400 feet a strata  of material. 100  feet deep which gave  gold values running from $4 to $20 per  ton..  This  would   be  about  the  same  level as the strata struck by Mr. Singer  at a depth of 40 feet below the surface.  There is a lot of. fine gold in the. Snake  river valley, and I believe that it is of  local origin,, by ?. system of ��� oxidation  which liberated the gold in thjs underlying strata.    Prom present indications,  many wells will be sunk there soon.   7  expect to sink a shaft within-the town  limits  of ..Ontario'within   thev next 30  days.    The  description  of this  deposit  corresponds; exactly   with   the   description which''!-secured pf the. celebrated  Johannesburg deposit in South Africa',  .which, before the-Boer war. .was. turning put $40,000,000 per year.    The African deposit is about 12 by 60 miles in extent,, lies deep below the surface in the  same formation and averages $10 to $15  to'the  ton.    London  invested  millions  there   before   a   pick   was   put   in   the  ground, because it was known that only.  the mechanical operation of extractinir  and   treating   the    gold  was    required.  There in every reason to  believe that  the Eastern Oregon' and Idaho deposit  is richer and much more extensive than  the African deposit."  Sharp Fighting  LONDON, July 17.���The South African casualty list issued tonight indicates  that- sharp fighting, occurred July 14  hear Zuurvlakte. 24 miles from Aliwal  North; The British lost seven killed  and two officers and .17: men wounded.  Chinese Relieve Russians.  VICTORIA, July 17.���News has been  brought he"re of incursions of Russians  into Schaan from Tibetan after fights  with the Thibetans, in which1 the Rusr  sians appear to have been ' in danger  of being worsted had they not been i*e-  lieved by good offices of Chinese officials.  PITTSBURG, JULY 17.���According to  figures compiled by the Pittsburg Dispatch, the steel-strike, is daily, costing  the companies involved $210,000 and'the'  wpi-kmen $16,000. Practically no stocks  have been carried and the consumption  has kept pace with the production for  some little time past.: About 700 tons  of the 1000 tons daily produced by the  American- Sheet .Steel Company is being; lost; and this represents a loss each-  day "to'Tthe combine.of at least $50,000.  In -addition to these losses the many  and! varied industries crippled now and  in prospect represent losses to the men  1 of large sums that .cannot be compiled  now. The Amalgamated men are said  to have a fund of over $200,000 with  which to keep the strike going, and the  many Amalgamated men: employed in  the various mills still operating will go  a great way toward keeping the sinews  of war in good condition.  PITTSBURG, July 17.���'*"We have not  heard from the other side at any time  in any way or on any subject since we.  r��-rted at the Lincoln Hotel last Saturday."- .This is'; the statement made  by the. president bf -the Amalgamated-  Association this evening, which ^disposes of rumors from New_ York 'today that the strike had been settled.  Mr.Shaffer stated further that-mbactual  negotiations were "on .between -president  Bishop pf the Ohip State "Arbitration  Bpard and himselfrtending toward arbitration. A letter received by "Mr. Shaffer from Mr, Bishpp asking if he weuld  consent tp a reopening of the conference has not been answered as vyet.  The principal events, in the day's  strike history were the failure of the  sheet steel people to reopen the Wells-  'ville plant with non-union men*, the  offer of financial assistance made to the  .Amalgamated Association by the. 200,-  J000 - members pf the American Fedeia-  .tion of Labor and J*y the American Winr  ���dbw" *GHass >\Workers'~ Association^ ; the  'concerted" action of the "associatlonrto  organize the immense steel plant at Van-  dergraft and the fact.that several closed  plants are being patrolled by. armed  watchmen and guards. The Amalgamated officials tonight profess great satisfaction over the result'accomplished  since the strike began, but officials of  the company, as heretofore, will say  hothin-r.  WILKESBARRE, Pa., July 17.���The  close of the second day of the stationary  firemen's strike finds fully 33.000 miners idle in the Wyoming district of the  anthracite co**.! region, whichv extends  from Duryes to Nanticoke. The number of idle men was increased.today by,  the suspension of railroad crews on  nearly all coal branches. No coal is  being mined, there is none.to haul to the  breakers and consequently there is no  work"for railroaders.  The total number of men idle now in  the whole anthracite'region is estimated  at 65,000. There are 40,000 mine work-  'ers_in_the_La"ckawanna_region"rbut~th"ey  are not all out. If the strike extends  tp the Hazelton, Schuylkill and Shamo-  kin' resrions, 130,0004- men may be idle  before long. The tie-up in this region  is complete and the strikers are much  encouraged. The hoisting engineers  held a, meeting in this city, this" afternoon and discussed the situation from  their point of view. Although the meeting was secret, it is.learned from pretty  reliable sources that the striking firemen received the moral support of those  present. It is almost certain that none  of the engineers will consent to take  the'places of the striking firemen.  PITTSTON, July 17���The mines in  this section which are idle owing to the  ���stationary engineers' strike are said to  be filling with water, despite the ef7.  forts of. officials, who ute themselves in  engine rooms endeavoring to keep tlie-  boilers warm. The operators are discharging the stationary engineers who  refuse to take the strikers' places. The  firemen have posted pickets about the  mines to prevent a threatened importation of non-union men from Philadelphia. -. -.  . SCRANTON, Pa., July. I7.r-There was  an (almost complete cessation of mining  operations today in the Lackawanna,  valley because of the strike of stationary  engineers. Less than half a dozen mines  :managcd by. individual, owners and the  group of Delaware, Lackawanna & Western railway, mines in the West Scranton  district were the only ones in satisfactory shape, for ruri'n'ing when the whistles blew this morning. Only six Delaware & Hudson collieries are in operation. Those idle involve 27;000 workmen. With the pumps idle, the flooding  of most of the mines is threatened, involving a-destruction of property that  will be enormous.  NEW YORK, July 17.���President William H. Truesdale of the Delaware,  Lackawanna & Western railroad made,  the following statement today with reference to the situation in-the mines under the control of his-road: "There is  no change in. the situation since yesterday. Up to the present the strikers  have succeeded in closing only six of the  mines, and we are not at all worried  without them, for we can fill the places  of .those who have struck at any time.  However, the strike is not causing us  any inconvenience. We shall take no  steps at present, but when we are ready  we shall fill the vacant places and go  ahead as usual.". }2  NEW YORK,. July 17���The steel  strike in America is attractlns much attention in England generqliy. and while  long articles are being, printed. In the  newspapers on the subject, ino comment  is made in the editorial columns. According to the London correspondent of  the Tribune, John Burns!has been less  reticent, for ho : forecasts;..an American  upheaval with the revival of the old  anti-slavery feeling arid tire transformation of trusts into state^'organizations  by the political power ,of hordes of  workmen. Finance-* quotations from  ���Wall street are unmoved by socialistic  tirades. Combinations are felt'to be  on trial in America and it,they survive  the great conflict with organized labor;  concentration of capital1,will-be promoted in England. .'-  WINNIPEG, July 17.���The statement  circulated in certain Winnipeg papers  to the effect that a committee of engineers and firemen were.liiere: in connection with, the strikingitrackmen'-and  that they; would go out on Saturday if  the trackmen's"conditions were1 not accepted by the company, has been contradicted by the chairman oLthe committee of engineers and firemen over this  signature as follows: "The-statement  appearing in this morni'ng's Telegram  stating that a deputat*ouf of engineers  and firemen were at present in Winnipeg with the object of iri��erviewing,.Mr.  McNicoll, the vice-president; in regard  to^'the strike, is without foundation and  totally untrue. The committee of engl-_  neers and firemen now here is the same  committee that met here' in April-last  and has been here until .now. The."committee now here ..are nowhere for^the  purpose.of meeting-or djscussing'any  matters with Mr, McNicolf and have not  asked for any meeting: with him.  "GEORGE S.

The foreign pffice treated  Olzewski well, giving him a. position  worth 5000 francs a year. Instead of attending to his work himself.

Just before the Chicago & "  Alton office in this city lost its wire at  1:30 the following was received from  Marshall: "The fire started in the New  York store at 12 o'clock and soon destroyed that building. In less than an  hour's time it destroyed that side of the  public square and has just jumped  across the street. Aid has been- asked  for from Slater and a special train  bearing the fire lighting apparatus of  that city has started." Not a drop of  rain has fallen at Marshall in over a  month. The temperature has remained  at the 100 mark for 10 days past, and  everything is dry as tinder. All vegetation has been literally burned up.

Moreover, we observe from  The Tribune that the *! per cen I tax Is  levied upon lhe net earnings, whereas the  mines in British Columbia aro not permitted to deduct frcm the gross amounl  Ihey pay upon any of tho payments which  they may incur for cost of mining- the ore.  This as Is well known bears heavily upon  the-British- Columbia mines, on account of  tho high" costs of all mine supplies, such  as powder, fuse, steel, etc., on this side  of tha line.  1 We^ trust that you will, kindly publish  "(his explanation regarding taxation, as we  believe! -that The Tribtino will agree that  it*.

RODERICK ROBERTSON,  Manager Ymh* Geld Mines, Limited.  ~    Yesterday  and  the  day  before,  The  ���'    Tribune gave the views of the.mana-  -   gers   of  two  wholesale  houses  on  the  question     of     railway     discrimination  against Nelson.    Both claimed that the  ���"   blanket  iate  on  freight  from.Eastern  ,    and  Coast  wholesale  points   to   points  ' in Kootenay and Yale worked against  Nelson   as - a   wholesale  point.     Today  -' The Tribune  obtained  the  views  of a  1 ail way man on the question.-  The railway man .said it was the policy of the  company which he represented to divide  the country into districts, and to mako  rates  to  and   from   common  points  in  these districts the same as rates to and  from common points in competing districts.    As  an   illustration:     The  rate  from  Eastern points to Winnipeg and  fiom   Winnipeg  to   common  points   in  Kootenay and Yale is exactly the same  as the rate from Eastern points to Nelson and from Nelson to common points  in Kootenay and Yale.    The same rule  ' governs   shipments   from   the .East   to  Vancouver ' and    from   -Vancouver    to  points   in   Kootenay   and   Yale.     This  places the Winnipeg wholesale merchant  and the Nelson wholesale merchant on  an equality, as far as freight rates go,'  for the trade of Kootenay and Yale. The  Vancouver and Victoria' wholesalers' are  exactly on the same footing.'  This holds  ���good-on-ncarly-all=lines=of=staple=com~  modities.    Asked asT to the practice of  Eastern' and Coast wholesalers combining the orders of. several small,'.dealers  in the same town and shipping them'-in  on the carload ��� rate,: the'railway mail  said that such  could be 'done,, but he  doubted very much if the wholesalers of  Nelson could point to a single instance  whore  it  had   been -done'in  any  town  outside of Nelson.' "Of course," lie said,  " wo protect merchants like TI. Gicgericli  "of   Kaslo,  William -"Hunter  & "Co.   of  " Silverton,   and    Hunter    Brothers   bf  " Rossland, who often purchase conimp-:  " (lilies in carload lots, and they get the  "samo rates as the Nelson wholesalers."  From the above it will bo seen that tho  railway companies'are doing  the  fair  thing by the wholesale dealers in Nolson; or, tit least, as fair ns they can do  under existing methods of operating rail  ways.  THOMSON STATIONERY CO. Ltd  riK.vos to Rent. ���       - - NKLSON, B. C.  ?8.S8- per ton.    The  company realized  ?379.612.03 from this ore.   The total cost  of mining; milling, and transporting the  ore was ?4.S4 a ton, oi\?206,87G.12.   The  company therefore had'$172,735.91  over  'and above all operating expenses. Three  pei* cent on that sum would be .$5,182.07,  which   would,- had   the  mine   been   in  Montana,  have gone  into the-treasury  of  that state as-taxes.    Deducting , all  the  charges  except   mining- from- the  value of the ore, leaves the value for  taxation, under the laws of British Columbia,  $6.17 1-3 a ton,  or a total  of  $261,866.79.    Two per cent on which is  $5277.33, or'-just $95.20 more than would  be paid under-the Montana system. But  these ligures do not agree with figures  prepared  .by   J.   Roderick   Robertson,  manager of the Ymir Gold Mines, Limited, which are given in the following  communication: :  Latest Burglar Alarms  A house fitted with the latest burglar  alarm will be safe from the fraternity,  if. they know of its presence, as soon as  they have had'a very little experience  of  it.    Tho  house  is  provided  with  a  sort of wire entanglement, so that it is  impossible to open  a  window  or  door  after, the apparatus has been set without setting the alarm going, ^and a most  ���formidable   alarm   it   is.     In   the   first  place,' a   stream   of   air   is   discharged  through a very powerful hooter, or buzzer, owing to a valve between the fog  horn and a reservoir of compressed air  being opened electrically.   At the same  time,   too,   a   powerful   electric   lamp,  placed outside the house in as inaccessible a position as possible to minimize  as far as may bo the risk of its boing  tampered with,  is lighted  up,- so that  the police or others attracted  by  the  piercing sound of the alarm, which can  be heard at a great distance, are guided  to the place where their services are  required.    It should be mentioned that  only a person ln the house can stop a  sounding of the alarm, whicli otherwise  continues till the air stored in the reservoir is exhausted, say, an-hour or so.  In.that time it can be guaranteed to  arouse the entire neighborhood, even if  Endymion-were included among them.  It' is obvious th**.t tho contrivance will  serve as-a fire alarm as well as against  burglars   by   using  a  thermostatic   arrangement, so that the alarm is set going when the wires  get heated.    This  invention  is  most  ingenious  and  well  thought out in all its details, and may  be depended upon as  being as  certain  as it is emphatic in its action.    It may  handicap the noble profession of housebreaking very seriously, indeed, and add  considerably to the hardships inherent  to the lot of the. cracksman.  ^Wgf*-' <*'0*% 00: 00' 00? 00 "2>' ^t^, *00*T%) ;*3r*2S 1*st*3&i.  rjc ' X:7��f  tot  to\  axzxzjsxxzxxxxz  Art     baxr  _"1  NEW B  UNDERWEAR.

Commenting on the statement,  The Tribune said the company, had its  property  been  assessed  as  real   estate,  ;   .would   have  paid   a  larger  amount  as  taxes than it paid under the system of  taxing the value of the ore 2 per cent.  The Tribune also stated that there was  little difference between the system  of  7   taxing mines in Montana and the system in British Columbia.    In Montana  t.he tax is'fixed by statute at 3 per cent  on the net proceeds realized from  the  ore mined.   In British Columbia the tax  is (also fixed by statute) at 2 per cent  on the value of the ore, the only deduc-  tion that- is allowed  being the'veost of  transporting the ore from the^mrne to  . the  mill   or  smelter  and .tiie^.mill  or.  smelter charges.

If, however, we calculate  the tax paid for 1000 at $5,65.3! on the basis  of the net prollts of-$M0,C!)2.S5, it will'seem  that   the  Ymir  company  is  paying a  provincial  mineral  tax at the rate of 3.G5 per  cent upon its net prollts, or 05'per cent, or  two-thirds of 1 per csnl, higher than on the  basis   of   the Montana ,tax. above  referred'  to.

A NEW FUEL.  ,-   An artificial  fuel tliat can be manufactured,  its  inventor says, for 50  per  cent less than coal, is announced by Dr.  Henry W.'Morrow, chemist, of Wilmington,   Delaware.     For   JS   years   lie  has  studied the experiments made by European and American scientists to find a  substitute for coal.   He had profited by  their failures, according to a test witnessed by the representative of the New  York Journal.    Dr. Morrow has appar-  j, cntly an article tliat will revolutionize  the heating business.   The artificial fuel  is,composed of about 90 per cent of common earth.   Any kind can be used.    For  domestic  purposes   Dr.   Morrow  thinks  ordinary   earth,   such   as   is   found   in  back   yards,   is   preferable,   while   for  high-draught fires, such as locomotives,,  steamships    a ���nel    industrial    establishments require, fuel made of clay is preferable,   as   it  hardens   better.    To   tlie  earth is added about 3 per cent of >;oal  tar, as a protection from the   .voather.  With the coal tar in the fuel a can be  exposed to rain for any len-;"-h of lime  without  being  damaged,     ^i*.   A5oii*ow  has pieces of his fuel that has lain in  water from two to  three days without  being impaired.    A trile of bnwdiist is  added, although it'is not necessary.    It  is merely added to the fuel for do.ncsti.*  use so tliat it will burn "out ami nnke  the fuel porous.   To these parts is added  the secret compound, which Dr. Morrow  says *'I hr.ve b?'ck*of my ers.. aud [ will  keep  it there until somebody pays me  for it."   The fuel with which a demonstration vp.s m*\fle w**s manufactured in  a  hand  mold   in  Dr. "Morrow's  laboratory.     It  was   in   the   shape   of  small  bricks.    Each    weighed    throe    ounces.  When placed on, a lire they burn with  an intcnsc"hoat.    According; to tho experiments  the artificial  fuel   under an  ordinary draught such as used in houses  will burn from four to six, hours.    Under a, forced  draught it will  last from  two to,four hours longer than coal. Another point in favor of the fuel is ihat  it throws off no smoke, gas or vapor.  When   lirst  placed- on   a   lire  it   takes  about 90 secoiulf* fpr the coal tai* in the  bricks'to  be consumed  and  after  that  th,ore is not the slightest odor, but the"  fire burns" intensely with  a small  blue  Jlnine.    At the demonstration a fire of  wood was kindled in an ordinary cook  stove.    On k>p of the wood was thrown  about 20 little bricks���"eggetts," the in-  vontor calls them���of the artificial fuel.  In   loss   than  20  minute*-   these   bricks  were  glowing at a  whito  heat.    Thoy  kept cleaning themselves, for as the (Ire  burns the outer surface, bricks gradually  peeled off, always lr "  .hg a bright white  heat surface.    Thei    /were no clinkers,  everything being reduced  to the finest  ilits), and falling- into an  ash  pan.   As  to the post of manufacture Dr. Morrow  hits  mtide whafc he considers a  liberal  estimate.    Earth eosj.s almost nothing;  coal  tar  is  very cheap,  for tlie  barrel  in which it is carried costs more than  the tar  itself.    The  secret  ingredients  arc staple articles that are inexpensive.  Dr.  Morro-w, in his 'estimate of manufacture, has figured the cost of a plant,  the cost of hauling the dirt, a big inter-  _est_on=_the_-japital .invested ,_and_says_the_  fuel can be easily manufactured 50 per  cent less than coal now costs,  .A Novel Proposition.  The Denver doctors wish to pass a  law for killing off all imbecile children.  These doctors are known as among the  most progressive in the country, owing  ,to their city being a resort for invalids,  and in making this proposition they  seem to be living up to their reputation.  ������The-proposition is now before the Colorado State Medical Society, which has  been holding its annual convention. The  consumption problem has been an especial study, and Dr. Charles Denison  formulated rules of marriage to avoid  consumptive offsprings which have been  generally indorsed by the society. They  are in part as follows:  Find tho proportion of all the  mother's and father's and their married  brothers' and sisters' children-born���i.  C, the person's parents', uncles' and  aunts' children���who were living at five  years of age,  First���Then .(excluding deaths wholly  attributable to accident or having nothing to do with, disease), if less than 80  per cent of such children were alive  at that age there is reason to suspect-  a weak strain in that lineage.  Second���If less than 60 per' cent of  such progeny .were then alive, there iy  strong .proof of \such. degeneration.  Third���Add to this, or consider it separately, that either the person's mother  or father or any two of his or her grandparents, "uncles, .aunts, ..-.brothers' or sisters died of consumption, cancer or  scrofula, then the proof of some defective biology in that family strain is still  more evident. *  Fourth���Add to this that the person's'  health is not good, even so little defective as "never very robust," of the person now,flat-chested and uuder weight,  then his or her fitness-for, .parentage  is still more impaired.     ,'���'  :;'  It is Dr. Dennison who wishes to exterminate imbecile children;- The suggestion is embodied in the following  petition drawn by himself and submitted to the society;  "To  the  Legislature of the  State  of   :    Your petitioners,   and  .husband and wife, residents  of the town of State of   Robt.

HOLT,  Manager Nelson Branch.  respectfully represent that one of their  six children, a daughter aged 20 years,  is a hopeless imbecile, a groveling idiot,  not susceptible of any education and not  possessed of any knowledge of right or  wrong or 6f cause and effect;  that her  existence has been a -burden to all her  relatives;   her   presence   in   the  family  circle has been a blight upon an otherwise happy home and a great discouragement and positive injury to the lives  of her brothers and sisters.   Your petitioners further represent that they believe   this   affliction   was   caused   by   a  fright   of .the  mother;   that  while' no  blame is attached to this creature's parents for hor being, the laws of the state  do not recognize the right of her parents  nor is-it the duty of anyone in authority  to have her life taken that this worse  than useless existence may be brought  to an end (by such painless, and by her  undetected,  means  as  gradual  suffocation by carbonic acid gas).    Your petitioners,   therefore,   believing- the   state  to  be responsible  under  these circumstances,   humbly   ask   your   honorable  body to  tnke this  matter in  hand,  to  have a commission appointed to examine into'the true state of this creature's  mind-and body, and if the within facts  and statements are thereby verified, to  carry  out  said   painless   extermination  of this defective life." .. -  Capital  Rest  $2,600,000  $1,850,000.

Having landed a tuna  in excess of 100 pounds weight Mrs.  Dickinson is now eligible to membership -in the world famous Tuna Club.  Captain.and Mrs. Dickinson left the  beach early in th,e morning and when  about three miles off tbey ran into a  school of leaping fish. .Mrs. Dickinson's  reel soon began to sing its" merry song  as a tuna took yard after yard with  him. Then began a L'attlo between the  seafish and the sportswoman. Reeling  in, giving away line, and the same double process over and over again for 45  minutes, her arms wero cramped, from  the severe physical strain, Mrs. Dickinson fought her first tuna to a successful finish, conquering it without assistance from boatman or husband.* Landing a tuna, the greatest game fish that  swims, is the most difficult feat known  to devotee-* of ihe rod and reel.
