ness of Mrs. Scott reached hor parents
on tho evening of Sept. 510th and her
brothers and sisters speedily started
for Baker City arriving there on Fri
day morning. Mrs. Scott rallied for a
timo on seeing near and dear ones
around her, and word was sent to her
parents that sho was better, but it was
only for a short time, tho hand of (lis-ease-(blood
poison and pneumonia)
was laid too heavily upon her and on
Monday morning, surrounded by loving
friends sho passed quietly way. Tho
body was embalmed and brought to

after funeral services conducted by
Rev. Crego of M. E. church, South,
sho was followed by a largo number of
sorrowing relatives and friends to her
last resting place in Pino valloy conio

had been a brido but a fow short
months. Sho leaves a husband, a
little daughter, by a former marriage,
parents, brothers and sisters and friends
to mourn her early death. It seems
diilicult to realize that one, such a.

A SMELTER NOW A CERTAINTY.
Tho Steamboat "Norma" too Largo for

Examining tho River.
Professor C. B. Miller, agent of the
American Mining Co: has been stay
ing in Wciscr several days, says
the signal, having returned from
his trip to the Seven Devils. During
a conversation with a Signal reporter
ho was asked if tho contemplated
orootion of a smoltor in tho camp
could bo depended upon as a certain
ty. Ho said:
"As far as any man can speak re
garding tho future 1 feel safe in assert
ing that it is a certainty. Every ono
of tho company has decided in favor of
a smoltor and that, has been my solo
object in visiting tho camp."
"Has the machinery, etc., been
"No, as xt ft 1,!IS nol jr''- Klon"
schmidt has boon desirous of waiting
until spring, as tho road might bo
closed by tho timo it arrived hero;
but, as I find that much can bo dono
yot this fall and as it will undoubtedly
be late next season before anything
can be done, I shall do my utmost to
havo everything possible dono this
fall, in tho way of preparing tho
ground, etc. Tt is our intention to
put m a Reverboratory furnace, which
does away with considerable machin
ery." "How do you intend to transport
"At present 1 could not return a
positivo answor. As is well known tho
first intention was to transport by
boats, but tho Norma has failed, as I
almost expected from tho first, as it
was cntirelv too lariro and had not
enough boiler capacity. I am satis
lied that a small but powerful boat of
about f0 tons burden would bo suc
cessful, and if ono was insufficient
another could bo put qn."
"I havo read that an expedition has
left Lowiston to oxununo tho river
with a viow of ascertaining if it wcro
not nossiblo to reach tho Sovon Devils
by boats from there. Is it true?"
"I was up there about four weoks
ago and Captain Botham, who I think
has boon sent out by the railroad com
pany, was about to leave onv his way
up tho rivor with snagging implements
and a crow, and it was thought thoy
would attempt to reach tho Sovcn
Devils landing. I look for but little
from that direction, hcvovor, as tho
cascades are almost too rapid for navi
gation. There is ono thing, though,
'that I am inclined to expect before
another your, and that is to sco con
btruction work begun on it railroad to
tho camp. Should this bo tho case it
will knock out all idea of boats. A
road will certainly bo successful and
mako an immense amount of money,
tho timber alono of that section being
object enough for a road."
"From whoro do you expect the
road to bo built?"
"Undoubtedly from this side and
most probab.y up tho Weisor river.
If this is done you will seo ono of tho
grandest copper camps in the world.
Komo havo said that thero were noth
ing but "blanket" deposits and that
twenty-five feet would tako ono bolow
every vein in tho camp. Such is not
tho case. Tho shaft on tho Copper
Key has now been put down through
fifty feet of solid oro which is richer at
tho bottom of tho shaft than at tho
surface. I expect to sec tho Copper
Key, Standard and South Peacock
ultimately divergo into ono vein when
sufficient depth is attained."
Mr. Miller is it vory pleasant and
straightforward old gentleman and wo
aro satisfied says only what ho believes
to bo the truth. Baker Democrat.

peculiar state of affairs which our
minister reported as existing at the
temporary capital of Chili, where it
was alleged that American citizens
were arrested and a guard placed
around tho United States minister'?
residence. Mr. Harrison is commend
ed by members of all parties for tlu
manner in which ho acted in this
matter. It was represented to him
that thero wcro feelings of enmity
existing between Minister Egan and
members of the temporary Chilian
government that should be taken into
consideration before he acted officially,
and he is reported to havo said : -The
personal feelings of Mr. Egan ui i'
members of the present Chilian r
eminent are not to be thought t i t
this time. It is the dignity ii il
government of the United Stat '!u
demands my first considcr.i'i'c
Acting in accordance with that 1 1
Ministor Egan was cabled to demand
tho immediate withdrawal of tin- guard
from tho U. S. legation and the r
lease of nnv American citizen-, that
may havo boon arrested, and in no
ong timo it was cabled back that the
demand had been acceded to. Had -t
boon refused Mr. Egan was instruct
ed to appeal to Captain Schley of the
U. S. S. Baltimore now at Valparaiso
for protection, and Captain lichley
had received instructions to march his
force of marines to Santiago if called
upon by tno minister, in standing
by his minister Mr. Harrison has tin
doubtedly taken n popular step, but
tho real question at issue is whether a
minister to a foreign country has a
right to allow his legation to be used
as an asvhnn. Such u thing would
not bo tolerated in any European capi
tal for an hour, and although it has
been tho custom of tho ministers of
all countries to allow it to all in tho
South and Contral American coun
tries whoro revolutions aro so frequent,
it is doubted by the best international
lawyers whether Minister Egan had
any legal right to grant asylum to
other than citizens of tho United
States. It is stated hero and generally
believed that tho Chilian authorities
wero controlled by certain European
influences which aro antagonistic to
tho commercial intorsts of tho United
States in this matter.
Tho pension ollico is again the
center of a perfect maelstrom of accu
sation and counter accusation. Three
employes of that ollico have made
affidavit that young Raum, who re
signed somo months ago on account of
tho scandal created by the chargo that
ho had been ongaged in office broker
age, approached them with a proposi
tion to havo thorn promoted through
his inlluenco with his father, lor a cash
consideration. Those affidavits wen
carried to Secrutary Noble and h has
turned them over to Mr. Harmon.
Meanwhile Commissioner. Raum is bj
no means idlo. Ho has demanded
that Secretary Noble dismiss tho three
employes who made the affidavits
against his son, and has submitted
to Secretary Noblo a lot of document
ary evidence which ho claims proves
that theto three mon havo entered
into a conspiracy to injure him
through attacks on his son. The
matter will havo to ho settled by Mr.
Harrispn, and upon its settlement de

The Chilian rumpus has had the
eircct of further postponing tho vari
ous prominent appointments that
tho politicians havo been so hungrily
expecting over since Mr. Harrison re
turned to Washington.
Tho efl'cct that small things havo
upon largo ones was nevor moro strik
ingly exemplified than by tho report
of Major Pollock, tho superintendent
of tho freo mail delivery system, who
has just returned from an examination
tour of tho principal freo delivery
offices in tho west. Major Polleck
says that tho recent abolition of the
custom of compelling carriers to count
ovcry pieco of mail reooived and dis
patched from tho postoilices will result
iu u saving to tho government of
about $5100,000 a year, and on account
of tho timo saved by tho carriers it does
away with any immediate need of
largely increasing the carrier force in
all Motions of the country, as it waa
expected aome time ago would nave to
be doac. J. H. (J.
