Gains of 40 Point Mad In Gold
Xlcld Shares on News That Sol
diers Would Remain There
for an Indefinite Time.
8AN FRANCISCO, Dec. -(Special.)
After six months of Inactivity, the
Mining: Exchange became today the cen
ter of Intense excitement. Stocks took
sudden spurts and shot up like rockets.
As the prices soared the brokers scram
bled and fought to get In their bids.
Higher and higher the prices went until
some of the leaders had recorded gains
of 40 points for the day.
Goldfleld Consolidated, the Big Nixon
& Wlngfleld property was the leader in
the market. Opening at J4.3C',i, Jt rose a
few moints In the morning, but at the
opening of the afternoon session brokers
came on the exchange with their pockets
bulging with buying orders from New
York and Boston, and the stock shot up
like a rocket, never stopping until it had
hit J4.76. There It rested for a time and
at the close of the market fell back 5
points with the general reaction.
Great Blocks Change Hands.
More than 12,00i) shares of this stock
changed hands during the excitement.
All the brokers had orders to flll, and as
the price Jumped 2 cents and 5 cents at a
bound, the men in the pit struggled to
gain advantageous positions, that they
might pick up their stock before the price
had gone too high.
With the rise of Goldfleld Consolidated
the entire Goldfleld list boomed. Daisy
shot from 90 to J1.12V4. Florence, the only
stock which has displayed activity dur
ing the slump, moved up to $4.25, Tut
gave way to $4.12H on the reaction.
A number of circumstances combined
to explain today's great activity. First
of all was the declaration of General
Funston that he proposed to keep the
troops at Goldfleld indefinitely. When
this news reached New York, the wires
were immediately laden with orders for
the local brokers to buy. A second bull
Influence was the announcement of the
local bankers that the situation had re
turned to normal and ,that the holidays
were no longer necessary. 'A number
of mlneowners came to town today with
encouraging reports and this aided the

MAKES TRAVELING SAFER
Effect of Safety Appliance Shown in
Less Union Pacific Accidents.
OMAHA. Neb., Dec. 18. (Special.)
That safety devices save limbs and lives
is demonstrated by the casualty report
of the Union Pacific Railroad. In spite
of greatly increased traffic, the number
of people killed and injured by the road
during 1907 was 1209, as compared w'th
20!)7 In 1906.
The report contains1 a list of the prin
cipal train accidents of the year, with a
statement of the causes and consequences
in each case. Each wreck was investi
gated by a special committee consisting
of operating or other officials of the
road, together with persons of promi
nence, integrity and reputation living in
the neighborhood of the accident. These
men are selected in accordance with the
policy of the road to secure an impar
tial report on every train accident, and
the placing of the blame where it rightly
belongs. In all cases where an em
ploye was found to have been guilty of
negligence, or otherwise responsible for
the accident, the guilty employe was dis
charged. Approximately $2,000,000 has been ex
pended by the Union Pacific during the
year in the installation of safety elec
tric block signal appliances for the pur
pose of reducing the danger of accidents
to the minimum. In addition immense
sums have been expended in track better
ment and maintenance. The management
of the road expresses the belief that this
expenditure has been justified by the
great showing made in the reduction of
th number of casualties.
Four passengers. Including postal clerks
and express messengers, were killed In
1907. as compared with five In 1906. The
total number killed in all accidents on the
system in 1907 was 105 and the number in
jured 1104. as compared with 114 killed
and 19S3 injured in 1906.
