Nature Gathered During the Past
Week—New Districts Brought to
the Front—Many Mining Accidents
Montana gives every promise of hav
ing a second Butte, so far as copper
mining is concerned. While the dis
coveries were originally made last fafl,
and rich ones at that, the ore was not
nearly as rich as that uncovered this
spring in the Tarbox mine at Saltese,
Missoula county. Reports of an ex
ceedingly rich copper-gold strike havo
just been received from that place.
One 60 pound piece of ore was extract
ed last week from that mine which
was nearly solid copper, and of the re
maining values gold predominated.
At last it begins to look as though
there would be a revival in mining
in the Silverton section. The im
proved price of lead puts some heart
into the owners.
Ore shipments for last week were:
Le Roi, 3500 tons; Centre Star, 1440;
War Eagle, 1050; Velvet, 150; Le Roi
No. 2, 700; total for the week, 6840;
total for year to date, 52.872 tons.
Since the problem of concentrating
ores of Roßßland camp was first moot
ed, one of the objections raised was
on the score of inadequate water sup
plies. This difficulty is now believed
to be solved by a plan to utilize a big
body of water whose utility has not
been recognized until recently.
A movement is afoot to make a thor
oughly representative collection of
gold and silver ores from a number ot
high grade mining properties now be
ing worked in the neighborhood of
Greenwood and to arrange for a well
informed man to exhibit this collec
tion in Spokane and give full infor
mation relative to the claims from
which these ores have been obtained
and of surrounding claims that are
open to men with capital and enter
prise enough to secure and work them.
Recently a masked mob of 50 men
went up to the No. 1 Coal Creek mine,
four miles from Fernle, and at tho
muzzles of revolvers compelled half
a dozen workmen who were in charge
of the fans of the closed mines, to
leave the town, and drove them down
the C. P. R. tracks, after some rough
handling. The mob went to the house
of Mine Superintendent Donneen and
assaulted him and his wife, after fir
ing a number of shots In the air to in
timidate them. Donneen recognized
one of the men, J. W. Morrison, and he
waa later arrested.

According to Belief Expressed by
Huntington, W. va., March 24. —
Coal operators, laboring people, pro
fessional men and banners, to tne num
ber of more than 2UO, crowded about
the front 01 a local hotel here today to
listen to an open air address by John
Mitchell, president of the United Mine
workers, on the subjeci of strikes. His
remarks were directed almost entirely
to the situation in West Virginia at
this time. He said in part:
"The capital and labor question de
mands the serious attention and In
vestigation of the American people.
It Is the paramount subject of the
American thinking people, and all
chimeras and theories must bow before
the great facts pressing for solution
and setlement. lam not an advocate
of strikes, but there are times when
they are necessary to clinch the argu
ment of truth in the mtereßtß of the
laboring people of this country. Strikes
are a feature of civilization, and thev
are merely a means to an end in the
great social evolution that is now con
fronting the American. Barbarous
countries and states have no strikes;
they are unknown there. Strikes are
the sledge hammers that weld the con
necting links of labor and capital and
make tbe endless chain of prosperity.
We want a better understanding oe
tween employer and employe, and we
come with ouerings of peace. The la
bor unions are trusts just like your
doctors' trusts, the ministers* trusts
and the money trust, only we cali

we style ourselves unions. There is
no civilization without labor; theie

factor, and why should we not protect

GEN. FUNBTON AMUBED.
Dr. Parkhurst Accuses Him of Deceit
Portland, Ore., March 26.—'1 am
disposed to feel amused rather than of
fended at the eruption of this man
Parkhurst, in New York, last Sunday,"
said Brigadier General Frederick Fun
ston to a reporter, when asked for a
statement in reply to the utterances
of the well known divine, wherein he
charged that General Funston's cap
ture of Aguinaldo was, accomplished
by "deceit and treachery; violating the
laws of war, the laws of hospitality
and the laws of God."
"I laughed when I read the dis
patch," continued the general, "but I
shall not lend dignity to his effusion
by offering a reply. I had supposed all
along, until I saw Kis name in print
last night that Parkhurst was in the
pound, but it seemq he is still at large.
Evidently Parkhurst hasn't raided any
dance halls lately, and he wants to at
tract public attention to himself by
jumping on me, in the hope that I will
answer him. But he needn't worry
about that. I won't bother him. He
is blowing off steam, and if he enjoys
it, let him keep it up," and then, after
a moment's meditation, the hero of the
Philippines looked up and said:
"1 notice the newspapers haven't
been saying much about Parkhurst
lately. I suppose this irritates him
and he is taking a shot at me as a bid
for public notice."

tated a moment, but +he robbers
threatened to Bhoot him 'f he did not
comply. He then turned the combina

revolver while the other went through
the safe, in which they found the
money. The robbers then disappeared
in the darkness.
