New York, June 19.— While aroused the weat ia making thrilling preparations for a practical fight against Standard Oil Company, to be begun in the state of Kansas, and the battle ugaiust corporate corruption and oppression is get ting into full swing. The govern ors of Missouri, Minnesota, Nebras ka and Kansas have invited Thomas W. Lawson to go to their states in July and addreBS tbo people. Law- son has accepted the invitations. This journey of the crusader against “ frenzied finance’’ promises to be a picturesque and stirring campaign. Preparations to receive Lawson have been made on a large scale. Other anti-monopoly speak ers of national reputation. Gover nors Folk and La Follette, and Dis trict Attorney Jerome, will make addresses. Olympia, Wash., Jume 27.—A discovery of gold-bearing ore with in the city limits is claimed by W. F. Carter and T. M. Rowden, two experienced miners, Samples of the rock brought in today are said to yield $40 to the ton. The dis covery is on land owned by F. D. Heunstis, from whom the man have obtained a lease. It is a half-mile above the mouth of Percival Creek in West Olympia and is near the Northern Pacific railroad track. Geologist« assert that the forma tion here is o f the Tertiary Period, the rook of which is seldom ore- bearing. The body of rock which Carter and Rowden claim contains gold is extensive. The ore requires smeltiDg. Forest Fires in Alaska. Seattle, June 28.—Forest fires along the banks of the Yukon Riv er, between the mouth of the Tan- ana River and Eagle City, have cut ofl all communication with Nome and St. Michaels, and for the past four days the local cable office hae been unable to establish any com munication with those points on Bering sea. “There is no telling just when the line at that point will be up again,” said Major Glaseford, to day, at the cable office. “ It will be impassible to get anything out from or into Nome on account of the fires for several days.” Advice reaching here from points this side of the break state that the fires are worse than for several years in the district affected. Miles of wire and poles are believed to have been burned down. The gravest defect in the juris prudence of this country as admin istered, is the lack of personal re sponsibility of the officials of large corporations. The expression, Ecor- porations have no souls “ has almost come to mean that ‘corporations have no responsibility’ and to this fact is largely due the grave viola tions of law which in some instan ces have become bo general as to cause well defined statues to become “ dead letters”. For instance, a powerful railway flagrantly defies the law by granting rebateo. Fin ally the officers of the government discovers the violation and there follows not a prosecution of the officers of the road, but a suit for an injunction to compel the railroad to obey the law.

Sailor Dies on tfie Isthmus of Bubonic Plague. Panama, June 25.— A fatal case of bubonic plague occurred at La Boca yesterday. The constant ar rival of steamers from infected South American ports, which are received at l a Boca without anj extra precautions being taken, must be a source of contagion. The man had been working on board the British steamer Chili, which the authorities of Guayaquil would not allow to enter that port. The com panions of the diseased laborer have been isolated.

Goldfield, Nev., June 26— Pros pectors coming into Bullfrog today report that they found two men wandering aimlessly about in Death Valley down beyond the Fun eral Range. These two men were insane and absolutely naked. Their tongues were black, swollen and protruding. Their limbs were also swollen. The men had evidently become delirious from thirst while prospect ing through Death Valley. Their misfortune is but a repetition of the disasters of that region during the past week. The springs are drying up and the usual supply of water is lacking. The prospectors arc so scattered over the vast region that there is no way of warning them. Carcasses of men and burros heavy laden and without owners have been found in numbers. This season of the year is unfit for all prospecting. The men are being nursed back to health and steps are being taken for their identification. ear NOTE A N D CO M M EN T.
