SODA SPRINGS, Ida., Aug. 22.
Pretty IC-year-old Nina Rowley's dream

ancient Scotch house has abruptly ond

Some tlmo ago a man w)io said his
r.arne wao Cameron and that ho was
a scion of the British nobilltj'. came
from Scotland to Soda Springs and
took up the prosaic life of a village
blacksmith. Ho saw pretty Nina Row
ley and fell in love with her. Just at
that time he said that he had Inherited
from his uncle a Scotch fortune of thrco
and a, half millions of money. Ho
showed the letter from the Scotch so
licitor to prove It. But thcro was a
string to the money. The young and
aristocratic heir must be married with
in six weeks or the money would Lo
given to charity. Cameron could not
afford to lose so much and besides ho
was in love.
No Match for Blacksmith.
Love may laugh at locksmiths but
the blind god was no match for a black
smith. Cameron told lG-ycatold Nina
Rowley of his love and his troubles and
showed her the letter from the Scotch
lawyer. She consented to be Mrs. Came
ron and to preside over th$ ancient
estatec The couple were married at
Pocatello six weeks ago and then
Cameron began a life of lavish expen
diture. He had his life insured for half
a million, the agent taking his note for
?25,000 to be paid when tho inheritance
came. Ho bought a number of country
places and paid for them in drafts on
his Scotch bankers.
Planned Wedding Trip.
Then he planned a wedding trip to
Denver. The bride's grandfather, Her
bert Horseley of Soda Springs, fur
nished the money and accompanied tho
pair. At Denver Mr. Horseley ous
pected that Cameron was a fraud and
had him arrested.
After he once viewed the happiness
and freedom of the world through pris
on bars, Cameron weakened and made
a full confession. He admitted that he
was not a millionaire, that he did not
poscss a sou markee In Scotland or
anywhere else and that the letter from
the Scotch lawyer was n forgery.
Spent a Day in Jail.
Cameron was kept In jail a day or
two, and was then released. Cameron
was not modest about himself, and
would talk only at the mention of his
pretty sixteen-year-old bride, from
whose arms lie was ruthlessly torn. He
was not proud of the fact that he posed
as a man worth 793,000. "But I had
to say I was rich to win the girl, and
I was bound to get her," he said, in ex
planation. '"I was not always a horse

man and It was only bad luck that left
Ten vars ago, when he wag only 21
years old, Cameron is said to have fig
ured in a romance in Scotland.
When ho awoke, the romance was over
and the- heir to vast estates near Paisley
found himself disinherited and alone.
Cameron's family had planned that he
should marry the daughter of a wealthy

before the wedding was to take place,
there visited In the neighborhood a
dashing young widow, Lady Constance
Hicks-Spencer. In two weeks the fair
English woman nnd Cameron had dis

ding was declared off.
. Was Disinherited.
A year later his father died and Cam
eron found that he was disinherited
in favor of a younger brother. He
started for America to make a fortune.
Bell boy, porter, ribbon counter clerk
and trolley conductor he was at various
times. Although wll educated, the
graduate of Norman's Veterinary col
lege, Edinburgh, he could not seem to
succeed. Eventually he reached this
pretty little city In the Gem State. Here
his knowledgo as a veterinary was
turned to that of a horse-shoer. The
remainder of the stbry is told above.

Mr. Horseley and the slxteen-year-oltl
girl wife, his granddaughter, arrived at

STRIKERS AS PICKETS.
Every One at Chicago Stook Tarda
CHICAGO, Aug. 22, Practically every
striker at the stock yards went on
duty as a picket today, all working un
der thorough' organized plans. Each
squad has a specific territory and each
man has a specified division.
A largely increased number of police
men were assigned to the district. The
first person arrested was Thomas S.
Stroker, business agent for the Meat
Cutters' union, endeavoring as a strike
picket to prevent non-union men from
entering the yards.
The railway trains Into the slock
yards, usually crowded, wore only part
ly tilled today, showing a great falling
off In the number of strike-breakers. It
is estimated that fully 1000 strike-breakers
who went out Saturday failed to
return to work today, but there were a
few new men employed.
Packing-house teamsters have adopt
ed a resolution charging that the action
of tho packers and police in stopping a
talnlond of strike-breakers Saturday
night was done to cause a riot, and
that union men wcro shot in cold blood,
one being killed and one wounded. Po

"The Interstate Mercantile company

WASHINGTON, Aug. 22. Consul
General Goodnow cabled the Statfe de
partment today that the conference of
foreign Consuls at Shanghai, which ad
journed this morning, was resumed In
the afternoon. After a good deal of dis
cussion no solution was offered for the
present condition of affairs, and it was
suggested that each Consul report di
rectly to his own Government, asking
what had been done, If anything. Mr.
Goodnow had no suggestion to offer
to the State department. He has been
given instructions which It Is believed
will prevent the United States from be

question of China's neutrality at

It Is asserted positively at the Navy
department that the American fleet at
Shanghai is not charged with the pro

He made no mention of the reported

ammunition, which they say Is plenti

the reason that it Is Impregnable from

poses to Return.
COLORADO SPRINGS, Aug. 22.
Eugene N. Engley, Attorney-General of
Colorado during the Waite administra
tion, one of the men run out of Cripple
Creek Saturday, argued a case in court
hero today. "I intend to return to
Cripple Creek," ho wild today, "and I
shall protect myself. I am not con
nected with tho Western Federation of
Miners In any capacity, my services to
that organization having ceasad six
tor, fronting which the Japanese have
taken up a strong position at Shushl
yen. Pigeon bay had been the scene of
fighting several days before the llnal
assault had begun, the Japanese never
being able to hold for long any terri
tory they might gain. Their attacks
were made mostly at nights, during
foggy days and mornings. The Japa
nese believe that their superior physi
cal condition will win the battle for
them by wearing the Russian garrlEon,
which la constltutted of less hardened
material, down to the p'olnt of exhaus
tion by the persistency of their attack
and their refusal to accept a repulBe.
Both officers and soldiers have; grown
indifferent to the shells which enter the
town frequently. Recently the Chinese
theater was hit and a score of people
were killed and wounded.
An unusually large proportion of
young company officers have been killed
which Is partially owing to their duties
and to their reckless darincr.
The Japanese fire is accurate. The
hospitals and Chinese houses at Port
Arthur are full of Russian wounded.
The narrators' say the dep.d when
ready for burial are stored In ware
houses and are then burned on tho out
skirts of the town, quick-lime being
used freely to prevent Infection.
The Junks now depart from Llao-TIo

STORMING OF PORT ARTHUR.
Resistance of Stoessel is Evoking
ST. PETERSBURG, Aug. 22.
Tho storming of Port Arthur, which
the foreign dispatches say Is progress
ing, Is riveting all attention. The stub
born resistance which Gen. Stoessel Is
making is evoking high praise, and the
War office and public arc- hoping almost
against hope that he will be able to hold
out in spite of the heavy odds against
him. The latest news, that the Japa
nese are unable to establish a foothold
at Louisa, bay and at the most westerly
fort of the Inner defenses, is considered
An official dispatch from Rear-Admiral
Prince Ouktomsky at Port Ar
thur, by way of Chefco, says that only
two officers were killed oh board the
ships which returned to the harbor after
the light of August 10, but his Informa
tion about the condition of the ships is
not satisfactory, the Admiralty explain
ing that he probably avoided going Into
specific details owing to fear that the
dispatch might fall Into the hands of
News that the Port Arthur squadron
has again sailed out Is expected at any
hour, as Rear-Admiral Prince Ouktom
sky's orders are Imperative to go out or
destroy his ships beyond the possibility
of repair before the fortress falls.
The loss of the gallant Novlk In a
fight against two Japanese cruisers at
Kosavovsk. island of Sakhalin, Is not
yet known here, as the authorities are
awaiting the report of Vice-Admiral
Skrydloff before making the news pub
lic. The cruiser by her exploits had en
deared herself to the whole country, and
her loss will create a more sentimental
effect than that of any ship In the fleet.
The report from Shanghai to the ef
fect that Rear-Almlral Prince Ouktom
sky had arrived there on the protected
cruiser Askold, August 12, proves to
have been untrue. A private dispatch
to tho Associated Press from Shanghai
today says that Admiral Oukfomsky
has not been there.

Russia to Dismantle the Askold and
ST. PETERSBURG. Aug. 22. Tho dis
patches saying that energetic action had
been taken by tho American warships at"
Shanghai to protect tho neutrality of Chi
na has aroused the liveliest satisfaction
In official and unofficial circles here.
Tho protected cruiser Askold and tho
torpedo boat destroyer Grozovol will be
disarmed. Tho Admirallty realizes that it
would bo folly to send the ships out to
face the Japanese squadron In the offing,
and as announced last week had already
declded that the ships shall be disarmed.
Tho refusal of the Russian Consul-General
at Shanghai to comply with tho re
quests of tho taotal. Is, it is said at the
Forelcn office, due to tho fact that no
agreement had previously been reached
between the Chinese and Japanese au
thorities, nnd Russia did not proposo to
allow the Chinese to disarm the ships, aa
thoy did In the case of tho Ryeshitolni at
Chefoo, with tho possibility that thoy
might subsequently bo attacked by tho
Japanese In port.

about G o'clock this afternoon until to- L IK
morrow morning at 9:30 o'clock, after IfijH'iil
a day devoted to listening to addresses fjj''V
of welcome and their responses, and the I fij.l ;
Introduction of resolutions. So many I fi ' '!-
of the latter were presented that the ffijj ' !
resolutions committee is flooded and (&
will bo unable to make Its first report
until tomorrow afternoon at the earll- Sj $
Contest for Location. t B?" jj
The report, It is expected, will precipi- Pwi" P
tate the first real display of strength "l If) "
between the delegations from those f Qfj v -H
cities striving to secure the location of j&J
permauent headquarters of the con- -&j 1
gress. This became apparent when a 'f1 if j fl
resolution was introduced by Dr. J.. M. t ij P
Buckley of Wisconsin, proposing an n ; '!,'
amendment to the charter taking out of ' '(
the hands of the body as a whole riie .( m
selection of the convention city each lilM' lit
year, and making it one of the pre- i' Im H
rogatlves of the board of directors. ' U4I '

Upon arrival of the El Paso and Salt 'H
Lake delegations It developed that a j :. !'j i
these cities are candidates for both per- Ijj W, H
manent headquarters nnd for the next fig Si fi '
convention In case no permanent head- Wi !J .
quarters Is chosen. The Denver dele- S, h7f 'H
gatlon, which arrived tonight, It is ,v ( I ft
thought, will also enter the struggle for jr.' ' ;i
the alternative honor ns well as for the n ify
permanent headquarters. 4 i A'M
Will Interfere With Plans. liPTrB
Dr. Buckley's resolution will, conse- $ j ,
quently, interfere with the plans of the V filH
delegations who have come here to win a i S ' H
the permanent headquarters or next S il ' 'I '1
year's location at least, and will prob- uf M ,
ably develop the full strength of each. iljti I li 'l
Hopes to Stop Contests. I jj j ( ij j'f
It Is at Just such contests as is at 11 1!'
present being waged that Dr. Buck- P I I'H
ley's resolution Is aimed. His Idea is llU !
that the antagonism engendered each Ik 3i , . J -.
year Is detrimental to tho best Inter- tr 'fi il
ests of the organization because the frt lUfj'. j' ifl
delegates devote their best energies in Mi'l ISH
behalf of winning for their respective Dri 'i VH
cities convention honors, to the neglect Iriii' ' ifH
of problems of far greater importance. ml ''' Tl
President Richards, in his annual lid- , if-fH
dress today, emphasized the necessity v It (jiiaiH
of securing Government co-operation K,fSj (;H
In the mining Industry In the form of a l ''fcH
Department of Mines and Mining. He r,
called attention to the assistance the f, -3
Government had rendered the dlstribu- ('v iH
tion of the public domain through the $ih 11
Department of the Interior; to the f Ijj tH
farmer through the establishment of i-. i . f IH
the Department of Agriculture and to j .'.t , '
the remarkable work already accom- i j JlH
pllshed by the newDepartment of Com- M 1 p , i i
merce and Labor. He asserted that if l 5J tH
the mining Industry would give him as- ri.; f
sistance it would be productive of good X fM tH
not alone to individual pursuits, but VIA IH
would affect every line of Industry In t' it'FH
the country. In pursuance with this M'li l'H
idea he proposed the following rcsolu- p-'t
What Resolution Says. 't '
"Be it resolved that the Amerlco-T '! t 1
Mining congress, in annual session ns- ijj ' I j IH
sembled, believing that the time has j- ij jH
arrived when a Department of Mines ft . jjl f
and Metallurgy Mining would be the h v 1LH
means of placing the mining industry 'hH
on a plane commensurate with Its lm- r i)H t
portance to all industrial progress, , h ' l) 1
urges the Congress of the United rli
States to nt once create a Department U . : !H
of Mines and Mining as one of the i 3fa 1 1 h
great executive branches of our Gov- 1 p ' j '.
