WASHINGTON. Feb. 16. The Senate
Committee on Minos and Mining has
favorably reported tho Senate bill to
establish mining experiment stations
for the development of the mineral re
sources of the United States and for

Col. A. B. Hayes, Solicitor Internal
Revenue, has been suffering with attack
of grippe, but Is now convalescent.
Senator Heyburn of Idaho was at the
"War department today In relation to
the enlargement of the military post at
Boise, which has been made a regi
mental post. He ascertained that It
would not be necessary to secure an
additional appropriation for the addi
tional buildings required there as the
sum available Is about $100,000. Further.
! that as no building will cost over $20,000,
the limit which can be expended with
out special authority of Congress, the
department will proceed without the
delay incident to special Legislature.
Senator Heyburn also took up the
feasibility of locating a, permanent site
for a military encampment for the
regular army soldiers In connection
with tho State militia. He urged a site
at a point between Spokane. "Wash., and
Coeur d'Alene, Ida., which is partly
In both States. This site has been
examined by Gen. Randall, who has fa
forably commended it. Numerous other
sites have bec-n suggested and bills
introduced in Congress with reference
thereto It Is understood the location is
to be left open to the Wur department
In order to take the most advantageous
rather than have Congress select a site.

view the body.
In appearance the features of tho
dead statesman are very life-like. They
Indicate little emaciation, and, on ac
count of the oxygen used during the
last days of the Senator' sickness there
is an absence of the ashen color pe

TWO MEN BADLY HURT
IN A PARK CITY MINE
Dennis McCarthy May Die From Injuries Received in an
Explosion on the Six-Hundred-Foot Lsvel
of the J. L C. Mine.
Dennis McCarthy, and John Sullivan,
miners', were taken to Holy Cross
hospital yesterday as the result of nn
accident in the J. I. C. mine at Park
City, which happened early yesterday
morning. McCarthy has a frautured
skull and Is probably fatally injured,
while Sullivan suffered a severe gash
on his arm.
Hospital surgeons worked with the
wounded men until late lost night and
pronounced Sullivan out of danger.
They were reticent, however, about Mc
Carthy's condition, and small hopes of
his recovery are entertained.
The men were caught in a blast In
the mine at 3:50 o'clock yesterday
morning. At the' chango-of-shift time
they loaded three holes In the face of
tho drift on tho 600-foot level and pro
ceeded to spit the fuse. The first fuse
was spit without trouble, but difficulty
was encountored with the romalnlng
, tjio, -xclajiria th mm for & mUiuta oc
more. Just as Sullivan turned to go
tho first shot wont off rind throw him,
entirely over McCarthy, whose face was
turned toward tho blast. One side of
McCarty's face was horribly mangled, a
cavity of the nose being brogen In and
tho skull fractured from a flying frag
ment. His hands were severely torn, large
pieces of rock being taken from them.
Sullivan was wounded In the arm,
Sullivan tried to carry McCarty to the
station, but failing went for help. Re
turning with tho station tender he met
McCarty coming out of tho drift, Mc
Carty remained conscious until after

The accident was of ouch a. nature
that blame can be attached to no one.

man went to the place yesterday and
found tho remains of the fusvs among
