The Famous Anaconda Cop
per King.
His Mining Career In Monlaaa aad
His Controversy with W. A.
NEW YORK, Nov. 12. Marcus Daly,
one of the leading mlneowners of the
"world, died In his apartments la the Ho
tel Netherlands, at 8 o'clock this morn
ing:, aged GO years. Dilation of the heart
and Bright's disease of the kidneys, with
resultant complications, were the Imme
diate cause of death, though Mr. Daly's
illness dated back several years. tHe naa
suffered severely during the last two
months, but the end was painless. While
he 'was surrounded by members of his
family, his life went out so peacefully
that only the physicians In attendance
knew that he had round rest.
Breathing fumes of arsenic In smelters
where copper ore from his mines were
treated and living in the high altitudes
of Montana weakened his heart. He real
ized that his constitution had broken, but
did not soon enough give himself oppoi
tunlty to recuperate. He at last came
to New York and consulted three eminent
specialists In diseases of the heart. They
all made the same diagnosis and advisea
him to forsake active business life. Fret
ting under these orders, Mr. Daly, con
trary to their advice, went to take the
baths at Nauhelm. These are said to be
too stimulating In cases of dilation of
the heart. Upon being told that death
could not long be delayed, he hurried
back to this city, hoping against hope
that those who had previously helped
him might again prolong his life.
Mr. Daly returned from Europe about
the middle of September. He was then
told that his physicians had confirmed
the opinion of those at Nauhelm that his
dayB could not be many. He wished to
be taken to his new home, at 725 Fifth
avenue, but It was thought best that he
should remain in the apartments of the
Hotel Netherland, whither he had been
taken from the steamship. His physicians
told Mr. Daly that they could guarantee
life only from day to day and that he
might pass away at any time. He ac
cepted the decision with full resignation,
asking only that he might live until his
family could be with him. Two of hli
daughters were then In Europe, and Mr.
Daly's pleasure was great when they ar
rived. It was the Irony of fate that upon
the date when Mr. Daly was told that
death could not be avoided, his political
and personal enemy, "William A. Clark,
took apartments in the Netherland Hotel.
Mr. Daly during his last two months,
was subject to sinking spells, each of
which threatened death, but "between
them he was bright and strong, mentally
and physically. He busied himself pre
paring a new will, consulting the mem
bers of his family as to details. At the
Daly home, he was said to have finished
the will and signed It less than 24 hours
before his death. No other Information
was given out except that the Daly hold
ings in the Anaconda Mining Company
had not been disposed of, as reported
several years ago, but w ould change own
ership under the will.
Mr, Daly failed rapidly Sunday after
noon, and he and the members of his
family were told that his strength had
been so depleted that he could not rally.
Most of Sunday night he was uncon-scloua.-hut
awoke &eA o'clogk yesterday
"Only a little while more, only a little
more, and then peace," were his words
to Mrs. Daly when she went to lilm.
With Mr. Daly at the moment of his
death were his wife, his three daughters,
Mary, Margaret and Harriet; his son,
Marcus Daly, Jr.: "his brother, Patrick:
his attorney, William. Scallon; Dr. W. H.
Thompson, Dr. Dillon Brown and Rev.
Father M. J. Lavelle.
Plans for the funeral are not yet com
plete. The body has been removed to the
family residence, 725 Fifth avenue. The
funeral services will Include a solemn
high mass of requiem in St. Patrick's
Cathedral at 11 o'clock Thursday morn
ing. Rev. Father Lavelle officiating. The
body will be placed temporarily In the
receiving vault of Calvary Cemetery. In
terment will take place there after u
family vault has been erected.
Uovr He Made His Money In Montana
Ills Fight "With Clarlc.
Marcus Daly was born In Ireland In
1842. He came to the United States early
In life, and since 1876 had been a citizen
of Montana. He became general manager
qrf the Alice silver mine, and later came
into control of the Anaconda copper mine.
At the time of his death he was president
of the Amalgamated Copper Company.
He was a member of the Montana con
stitutional convention In 1SS4. In politics
he was a Democrat.
The differences between Mr. Daly and
W A. Clark have attracted much atten
tion The trouble-started years ago over
some land har Butte which Daly and
Clark purchased together. In 1S8S Mon
tana was a territory. It had a Demo
cratic majority. Mr. Clark was a candi
date on the Democratic ticket for Con
gressional Delogate. Ordinarily he would
hae Ron. but Daly threw his enormous
influence to the Republicans, and his
dally newspaer bitterly fought the one
owned by Clark. Tho election resulted In
the cho'ce of Thomas H. Carter, Clark's
Republican opponent. Montana became a
state In lfS9. Daly defeated Clark In 1S93.
In the Legislature, the Democrats had 35
Totes, the Populists 3 and the Republi
cans 33. The Daly Democrats, numbering
9 notes, went solidly for ex-Congressman
W. W. Dixon, and there was a deadlock
for the entire session of CO days.
Tne next fight between Daly snd
Clark was on the location of the State
Capital. Helena, Missoula. Bozeman and
Anaconda were In the fight. Daly advo
cated the last-named place. Clark at
first favored Butte, but finally changed
to Helena, and that city was chosen.
The Senatorshlp again became the b ne
of contention between the two mill oi
aires last January, and Clark was. el ct
ed, Daly had the validity of the elsct on
contested, on the ground of briber, when
Clark presented his credentials to the
Tnlted States Senate. The use of money
In the election was freely charged en
both sides, though It was claimed that
the expenditures were legitimate ex
penses only. The contest resulted In the
Senate voting that there had be:n n:
election by the Montana Legislature. This
year Clark made a fight for the election
of members of the Legislature in his
interest, and won. His return to the
Senate next January Is assured.
No mining property has achieved great
er fame as a producer of dividends than
the famous Anaconda. Originally bcurt
as a silver mine. It became famous for
Its copper, and to It both Daly and Clark
largely owe their vast fortunes. Back
In the 7&s two miners named Hicky.
from SL Lawrence County. New York,
went te Montana, They selected a hill
overlooking the little m'nlng camn of
Butte, and began to sink their shaft.
They struok a fair vein of silver, but
lack of funds made them stop work rnd
offer to mil. Marcus Daly bought the
property for $36,000. He acted. It Is ald,
as agent for J. B. Haggin, of California,
who had sent aim to Butte to buy him
come gsod mining property
As the new owners ran their shaft
down they opened one of the worH's
greatest copper mines, wjth sllv-r
enough tt pa' all expense and leaving ,
fib copper as clear profit. Daly was su
perintendent and part owner of the great
mine. He bought the adjacent properties.
He founded the town of Anaconda in a
valley 25 miles distant, and located where
there Is an exhaustless supply of water
and a great deal of wood two indls
pensables for the smelting and reduction
of ores. At that place he erected the
greatest copper plant in the world.
Daly had a passion for horses of blood
and speed. He owned the J4OO0O celt
Hamburg, Tammany, Montana, Senator
Grady, Gwendoline, Ogden and other
famous wlnnera He tried to buy the
winner of the Derby and Ascot races cf
1S97, Galtee More, but his offer of 5125,0 o

Italy the Home of Assassins.
Leslie's Weekly.
It is a faot that does not speak well for
Itxly that the chief anarchist assassins
of recent years have claimed that country
as their birthplace. President Carnot,
of France: Premier Canovas, of Spain;
the Empress of Austria and King Hum
bert have all fallen victims to anarchists
of Italian birth and breeding. Santa
Caserio, who stabbed Carnot at Lyons
In 1S94, was a native df Lombardy; Angino
Gollo, who shot Omovas In 1S97, was born
at Boggia, near Naples, Luchessl, who
killed, the Empress of Austria at Geneva
In 1SSS, although born In Paris, was of
Italian parentage; Angelo Brescl, who
shot Humbert, Is reputed to be a native
of Prato, In Tuscany. In this connection
it may also be stated that the latest pub
lished statistics show that In Italy, with
a population estimated at 30,000,000, over
4000 people were murdered in 1S97, while
more than 50,000 were violently assaulted
and wounded. In Sicily mone 96S persons
were murdered In one year, or an average
of between two and three each day. These
facts and figures are full of unpleasant
suggestion. Nor does the supplementary
record of punishments meted out by the
Italian courts relieve the situation very
greatly. Of the 4000 murderers made
known to the authorities only 124 received
the full penalty prescribed by Italian law
Imprisonment for life. It would appear
that human life Is nowhere held more
cheaply than In the Italian peninsula.

returns from Bonavlsta District, in the
colonial election, show that Merlne,
Blandford and Chaplain, Reldltes, have
defeated Cowan, Hutchins and Martin,
Liberals, by an average majority of- 680,
as against 1680 at the previous election.
The Liberals are jubilant over this reduc
tion, because Mr. Reid had exerted every
influence to secure the election of Mr.
Merlne. Mr. Reld's son canvassed the
district with Mr. Merlne, and the con
tractors, steamers and trains were utilized
to help him. The Liberals criticise the
fact that Merlne is Reld's general coun
sel, Blandford his shipmaster, and Chap
lin his outfitter. They contend that this
is not a seemly situation for members of
the Legislature.

Roberts Reports Unimportant Cap
tures in the Transvaal.
LONDON, Nov. 12. The War Office
has received the following dispatch from
Lord Roberts:
"Johannesburg, Nov. 10. Methuen sur
prised Commandants Snyman and Ver
mass near LIchtenburg yesterday. Three
dead Boers were found and 30 prisoners
and several wagons were captured. There
were no casualties among the British.
"Kelly-Kenny reports "that Major Mac
intosh, of the Seaforth Highlanders, 00
cupled Phlllppolls November 8. Tht
Boers fled in all directions. Three wound
ed were brought to our hospital. Sur
geon Hartley and seven men were wound
ed. "Lyttleton reports that Kitchener suc
cessfully surprised the Boers during the
night of November 7. A mounted party
of the Nineteenth Hussars and the Man-
I Chester Mounted Infaritry, under Captain
Chetwolde, managed to pass the Boer out
posts, and while the latter engaged the
enemy's picket, the Hussars surprised the
Boers, sabering many. Chetwolde and
several noncommissioned officers behaved
with gallantry, but the Hussars would
probably have suffered severely as they
got Into Boer ground, had they not been
supported by the mounted infantry. Dur
ing the morning artillery and Infantry
joined Chetwolde's force,, and completed
the Boer rout. They are said to have
lost heavily.
"Smlth-Dorrien's wounded, who re
turned from the Boer camp, report that
Commandant Prinsloo and General Fourie
were killed and General Grobllar was
wounded in the recent flgh&ng."
Ministerial Programme "Will Be
Formulated Before Christmas.
NEW YORK, Nov. 12. A dispatch to
the Tribune from London says:
The Ministerial programme for the ses
sion of Parliament will be worked out In
a series of Cabinet meetings before
Christmas. The Ministry is committed
to a single policy the reorganization of
the military system. And this may moan
much or little. Probably there wjll be a
long period of expert investigation after
Lord Roberts' return and nq Immediate
legislation. A large number of technical
questions referring to guns, cavalry
equipment, transport and other details
wll be raised and the system' of training
soldiers will be altered. These matters
do not require legislation, but are purely
One change has already been made al
most without observation. The British
soldiers In South Africa know nothing
about intrenching. At Colenso and Ma
gersfonteln they did not use the spade,
and when they tried to dig on the sum
mit of Splon Kop they made very bad
trenches. An army officer says that
in recent maneuvers In various parts or
the United Kingdom the soldiers have
been drilled In the use of the spade, and
taught the art of lntrenchment This
art teaches' the method by which the
campaign will be taken to heart In the
future training of the British Army.
Legislation will probably be restricted
to money grants for the improvement of
the artillery, equipment of the army,
fortifications, tooling stations and sea
ports and for the strengthening of the
fleet .
One other point will not be lost sight
of: This is the co-ordination of the re
sources of the colonies and the mother
state In a comprehensive scheme of im
perial defense. Arrangements will prob
ably be made with the aid of1 Mr. Cham
berlain for an Imperial council of some
kind In which Canada, Australia, and
other self-governing colonies will be rep
resented for the purpose of common con
sultation respecting a complete and ef
fective system of defense.
Committees Discuss Several Ques

MADRID, Nov. 12. There were a num

proclaims the necessity of a special Spanish-American
court to deal with all ques

firms, ought to be permanent and obliga

any tendency to give an arbitration court

Chronic Sufferers Properly Cared For at Actually Less Than One-Fifth
the Usual Outlay Superior Efficiency of the System Now
Quite Generally Conceded.
The Copeland physicians, in
their conscientious effort to
provide for the proper care and
treatment of chronic diseases,
'generally, at fees which are less
than one-fifth of those usually
exacted and less than one
tenth of those too frequently
exacted, have not been unmind
ful of the following points 1
First, that the people of tha
great main body of society
stood in deep and urgent need
of some such reformatory
measure; that the awful fre
quency with which chronic In
valids sink hopelessly and help
lessly down to death from
sheer inability to secure the
attentive and continuous help
of those physicians who make
a study and a specialty of
chronic Infirmities was In it
self an appeal to the humanity
of the medical profession which
could not be overlooked with
out the Incurrence of a fright
ful responsibility for wholly un
necessary loss of human life.
Second, the Copeland physi
cians bore in mind that the true
public spirit not to say tne
true and pure humanity, of pro
fessional services offered to all
sufferers at strictly nominal ex
pense, must of necessity depend
on the worth or the worthless-
Mr. W. L. Farrell, Farrell's Addition,
Woodlawn, in speaking of his trouble,
said: 1
"I have always enjoyed fairly good
health up to within five or six months
ago, when I was attacked by that
terrible disease, Rheumatism,
which almost finished me. The tor.
tures and suffering that I endured for a
short time I cannot find words to ex
press. I was confined to my bed for al
most a week and to the house muoh
longer. I could not move -without
excruciating pain, and so great was
my suffering that I could get but little
rest and had no appetite to eat In this
condition, I rapidly lost strength and my
general condition was very feeble.
"My wife had been treated by the Cope
land physicians. In fact, many of our
relatives had been under their care, an,d
It was In this Way I decided to entrust
my case to them. The results have been
most gratifying. They soon had the
disease under control, and I am
now entirely tree from it. I am al
ways glad to Tecomniend the Copeland
physicians. I like their wayof conduct
ing their business and their arrange
ment of charging a monthly fee, wh ch
Includes all medicines, and as many visits
to their office as are necessary, it Is
certainly a blessing to those who work
on a salary and have a family to take
care of."

Why Disfranchisement In the South
Doesn't Affect Representation.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 7. There will be
a great deal of talk when the time comes
to pass a bill for the reapportion
ment of Congressional representation,
of reducing representation in the
South, on account of the disfranchise
ment of colored voters. But it will end
In talk. Every time there has been an
effort of this kind made, either in Con
gress or In political conventions, It was
defeated by the white Republicans of the
states affected. Republicans representing
districts where there are a large number
of cblored voters will not dare to favor a
proposition looking to the reduction of the
representation in the South, although that
representation Is of no value whatever to
the colored man, but Inures always to
the benefit of the Democratlo party, both
in the Electoral College and in the Con
gressional representation.
In the first place, It will reduce the rep
resentation from the Southern States, and
this the colored man does not want and
neither does the white Republican of the
South. The votes of the Southern Repub
licans, either white or black, have be
come such a valuable commodity In Na
tional conventions that they want as
many as they can get, and will oppose
anything which will reduce their num
ber. The colored men In states like
Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and In districts
of large cities where a considerable
colored population has emigrated In
the last 20 years, will support
their colored brothers of the South and
the white Republicans of the South in
their efforts to prevent anything looking
to a reduction of representation besause
the colored men cannot cast their votes.
They will oppose It because it will look
Hke a distinct recognition of the disfran
chisement of the colored people In the
South by National legislation. This alone
will probably prevent any reduction In
the representation. Added to the Re
publicans who will be compelled to op
pose a reduction are the Southern men
themselves. They will not wish to re
duce their representation, especially as it
is all for the benefit of themselves in get
ting representation upon population, but
where votes are never cast
This proposition Is going to be seriously
urged when the reapportionment bill Is
presented, and it will cause a division in I
tne .Republican party of very serious mo-,
ment Men from districts where there
are no colored votes to speak of, and who
recofmdze that color! mi nm nnt al

pion the cause, while there are other Re- ;
publicans who will insist that the true
remedy will be a National election law :
which will guarantee the right of every
ness of the servloes thus of
fered. This Is a point so clear
as to hardly need Illustration.
