EVENTS IN COUNTIES BORDERING ON BAY OF SAN FRANCISCO
METAL MINES LEAD
IN DEATH LISTS
Spokane Congress Urged to
Curb Disasters, Told Coal
Workers Suffer Less
"Blue Sky" Law for Promo
ters Opposed on Plea it
Would Increase Frauds
SPOKANE. Nov. 26.—Declaring that
the loss of life in metal mines through
accident! was greater than the loss in
coal mines, the report of the committee
on the bureau of mines, presented to
the American mining congress today,
urged additional research by the fed
eral bureau for the protection of life
in the metal mines.
Thp committee aleo recommended re
search by the federal bureau in con
nection with the economical reduction
of ores, with especial reference to
electric smelting on a commercial scale.
The proposal to urge the establishment
of free assay offices by the federal gov
ernment was reported unfavorably by
the committee, which urged the pas
sage of state laws to require examina
tion and licensing- of assayers.
The proposal of Lieutenant Gover
nor W. R. Allen of Montana to urge
the passage of state laws requiring
that information regarding mining pro
motions be reported to a state com
missioner of corporations for the pro
tection of Investors was opposed vio
lently. Opponents of the measure un
der the leadership of Congressman
«lect J. D. Decker of Missouri declared
that such a law was dangerous in the
extreme unles*' each state were pre
pared to put the seal of indorsement
on private enterprises. Decker said
euch a plan would open a wider field
for fraud than it would close and that
it might make impossible the develop
ment of worthy properties.
The legal maxim "let the buyer be
ware," was vigorously invoked, oppo
nents of the Allen proposal including
R. F. Collins of Spokane and D. F.
Millard of Alaska, declaring that if in
vestors took the fc'ame precautions and
made the same investigations in buy
ing stock as in other investments,
widespread fraud in mining promo
tions would be impossible.

BERKELEY CLERK'S PAY
HELD UP IN SALARY ROW
City Attorney Holds Justice
Edgars Aid Also Is Over
drawing for Services
BERKELEY, Nov. 26.-—As a result of
litigation between Justice of the Peace
Robert Edgar and the city over the
justice's salary, the auditor has been
ordered to withhold not only all of
Edgar's salary pending settlement, but
that of Oliver Youngs, clerk of the
court. Youngs, who has received $116
a month salary, should have received
only $100, according to City Attorney
Staate. By an agreement with Youngs
the council will pay him $100 a month
pending the end of the Edgar litiga
The salaries extend back to May I,
1311, since which date the Justice has
received $3,000 a year or $250 a month,
and Youngs has received $1,392 a year
or $116 a month. Staats contends that
Edgar has overdrawn $987.07, and
Youngs $299.88. By order of the city
attorney. Edgar's salary already has
been withheld to the amount of $637.77.
The salary trouble began when Edga r
entered suit for back salary, which he
said was due under a state law. Staats
entered the counterclaim and ordered
Edgar's salary withheld. This morning
he sent, by request of the council, a
written opinion, which alleged that the
justice's clerk has also been overpaid.
Both salaries are under the same law.

Wake Up! You
Make Tour Stomach Cheerfully Do Its
Work—Stuart's Dyspepsia Tab
lets Digest Tour Food and
Assist the Stomach
People who complain they are worn
to a frazzle are nearly always dyspep
tic and are recommended to use Stuart's
Dyspepsia Tablets. The stomach gets
lazy, food ferments and sour*, gas
belches up, there are symptoms of
bloatingr, the blood becomes thick and
sluggish, the liver is blamed, the head
is heavy, the mind a blank and the
dining room is a chamber of horrors.
One of the greatest evils of our mod
ern life is the quick lunch. To this
evil, as much or more than any other,
may be traced the preponderance of
the stomach troubles of our times. In
stead of taking time to thoroughly
masticate the food before swallowing
it, the average person rushes through
the meal, bolting the food, deglutition
taking place while it is only partially
mixed with saliva and only half mas
ticated, thus leaving: th* stomach to do
the work the teeth should have done.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets contain
digestive elements, a single grain being
capable of digesting , 3,000 grains of
food, including meats, eggs, grain,
vegetables, starches and mineral mat
ters. They prepare every particle ojt
food by thorough digestion for ready
absorption and assimilation by the lac
teal glands, which pass it into the
blood, whence it is conducted to all
parts of the system, rebuilding and re
