Mhic Owners of Northern Idaho Threaten
to Close Down on Account of
High Freight Rates. "
A burglar in one night at Pbceulx, A.

Petitions are now being circulated in
all the labor centers in Montana for the
enactment ol a bill, an important section
of which is as follows : "That it will be
unlawful for any officer of the btataof
Montana or any oilice.r of any town or
city thereof to issue a license to engaze
in any kind ol business within this Bute
to any person or persons not citizens or
not having declared tneir intentions to
become citizens of the United States."
This is a sweeping blow at tbe Chinese
and will, if it becomes a law, shut np
every store, restaurant and laundry run
by Chineee in theBtate. -
The mining fever has broken out in
Medford, Or., and professional, business
and laboring men are looking toward tbe
hills and anxiously awaiting a settle
ment of the weather with a view of tak
ing a prospecting tour. New impetus is
given to the excitement each day by the
return of prospectors with specimens ol
rich gold-bearing qaarti and glowing ac
counts of the pjs jioilities of tbe mineral
belt of Southern Oregon. But all pre
vious returns were totally eclipsed when
D. H. Horn came to town with a pock
etful of quartz. Many of the specimens
contained almost an equal amount of
gold and quartz, some of tbe particles of
gold being as large as a pea. Five
pounds of this rock, when pounded out
by a band mortar, produced over (10
which would run tbe percentage up to
the modest sum of t40,i00 to the ton.
' It is reported from Central Point, a
station on the Fonthern Pacific four
miles west of Med tot d, Or., that tbe
railroad company has entered into an
agreement with F. T. Fradenburgh to
carry paeecgers between that point and
Oa er Lake in tbe Cascade Mountains.
The dntan.ee from the railroad to the
lake is eighty miles, and a stage line is
to be established between tbe two points.
Mr. Fradenburgh rays the railroad baa
guaranteed him 1.C03 passengers at (S
each. He has already purchased suffi
cient stage coaches to accommoiaie this
number of tourists, and it is hia purpose
to erect a snmmer hotel at the lake. In
good weather tbe road to tbe lake is all
right for driving, and the ronnd trip ctn
be made in five dy without a chat'ge
of horres. It ia thocght that Crater
Like will be a pipnler tesort lor tourists
and plersare seekers this summer. The
possibility of the reservation of this land
by the government for a national park
probably accounts for the action taken
by the railroad.
John Haves Hammond, General Man
ager of tbe Bunker Hill and Sullivan sil
ver mine at Wardner, Idaho, has re
ceived word from Northern railroads
which has about convinced him that be
will close down tbe mine. Nearly all of
the other great mines will alsoclooe
down. For some months past Mr.
Hammond and others of the Mine Own
era' Association have been endeavoring
to get a redaction of freights from the
Northern Pacific and Union Pacific rail
roads, which carry their on s and con
centrates to Ta -oma, Denver and Omaha
smelters. Mine owners have gone so far
as to offer a sliding scale of compensation
(or carrying, so that when silver and
lead come up again the railroads will re
ceive more than they did before. To
these overtures, however, the railroads
have been deaf, and as (so Mr. Ham
mond telle) it is cost ng them nearly
double to work tbeir mines than it does
Mr. Hugv'in and other mine ovnera at
Butte and Anaconda, near at hand, they
cannot continue end nmst close down
about Ma'ch 1. Mr. Hammond said :
"I don't ee Any other way to do. We
have either got to cut on the expenses
"4 mining or in freights. We cannot,
T", cut enough to enable us to
-v tut then would not make
nce il we sot. no reduction

Li Hung Chang, Viceroy of China, is
one of tbe most important people in tbe

So far as ia known. Admiral Sir Eras
mus Ommanney is now the only British
survivor of the battle of Navarino. Born
in 1814, he waa then a middy of 18. Sir
Erasmus is best remembered in connec
tion with the Arctic search expedition of
1850, when he waa second in command,
and discovered tbe first traces of Frank
lin. For hia services on that occasion
he received knighthood.
A friend of the late Bishop Brooks au
thorizes the statement that tbe current
reports as to hia wealth are wholly with
out foundation. Tne only nse which Dr.
Brooks cared to make of money was to
distribute it among those who needed it
and his daily life was marked by open
handed and tender charty. So far was
he from nsing hia talents as a means of
accumulating property that at the time
of his death he bad not sufficient income
beyond hia salary to support his simple
and unassuming manner of life.
