rpHi: recovery of Senator William
iA. Clark of Montana from two
delicate operations consisting of
the removal of the mastoid bone
from the base of the brain may be
ascribed to "Clark luck." At least that
is what it Is called In Montana. These
two operations totb occurred within
lit. . . . . n,. n

thought would remove the trouble,
which started from a cold producing an
abscess in the middle ear. But the
symptom recurring. Senator Clark de
cided to have another operation de
spite the fact that the surgeon said it
was not absolutely necessary. Clark
docs not believe In half measures and
was determined to have the matter
over with for good and all.
This operation Is one of the most
delicate known to surgery. It necessi
tates exposing the brain, and a false
movement might easily result In death.
Thomas A. Edison was recently oper
ated on in a similar manner. The fact
that Edijou pulled through would Indi
cate that the fortunate outcome in
both cases was due to the triumph of
modern surgery. Hut despite all this,
the Montana people would insist that
Clark luck would have pulled the cop
per king through in any event.
Worked Twenty Hours a Day.
Senator Clark himself ascribes this
so railed luck to the fact that he used
to work alout twenty hours u day and
has not entirely reeoven-d from the
habit. The natives, while admitting
the semilogs steam engine Industry,
Insist, however, that It alone could not
have brought all the good things that
ha vp been piled In his lap by fortune.
For example, there was that time
when Clark was Just starting, lie had
saved up a little money from mining,
peddling. storekeeping and sharp
trades when some miners got a portion
of it away from him by Helling him a
hole In the ground. Clark tried to
work the hole, only to find that he had
been bunkoed. Hclng u good trader
himself, however, he said nothing, but
leased the alleged mine to some other
Innocents, who squandered more
money on It without result. By this
time the story had got about camp
find the other miners chucklingly called
the hole -Clark's Colusa." One day a
fct ranger beckoned the future mllllon
ulre uslde and asked him If he owned
the Colusa." Clark rather sorely ad
mitted the fact, when the stranger
ventured the cheerful information that
it was a bonanza. Clark was tired of
being chaffed, rather wearily admitted
the drinks were on him and started to
liquidate. The stranger Insisted. "But
there is not an ounce of gold or silver
In the hole." said the now Indignant
owner of the "Colusa." "Hold or sil

The history cf Thomas F. Walsh
read like a page from the "Arabian
Nights." Bom In the county of Tip
ptrary, Ireland, fifty-four years ago.
Walsh wa educated In the public
schools aud lesrned the millwright's
trade. At the age of nlneteeu he came
to America and located in Colorado.
He was inxjr, but ambitious, had plen
ty of brains and was a hustler and
soon made a "utrtke" in the Black
Hills which netted him about f lOO.uu).

Baking Powder Billy."
But there were other things that
came to Clark In the old days that the
miners do not ascribe either to luck or
hard work, but to a more subtle qual
ity. For example, Clark once cornered
all the baking powder In the mining
ramp and was thereafter known as
"Baking Powder Billy." Then he cor
nered all the apples and sold them at
a dollar apiece. On one or more occa
sions he bought up all the available
tobacco and sold It for a dollar a plug.
Money was plentiful in Montana then
and tobacco was scarce. Clark made
It scarcer. As a conseqnem-e, he also
cornered quite a little of the money
supply. He thus showed all the in
stincts of a captain of industry early
in the game.
Clark had been a poor boy In Penn
sylvania; had managed to get enough
education to teach school for a year In
Missouri; then pounded an ox team
through to 'oiirado at the start of the
gold fever; i:i another year heard of
the g iM excitement in Montana and
hl-d himself thither, still with the ox
team; worked as a common miner for
a year and cleaned up Sl.rif"), and on
this capital brought In stuff from the
Missouri river points and even from
San Francisco and sold It to the min
ers for three or four times what It
cost him. This might have been luck.
but it also involved some rather foxy
financiering, at which W. A. Clark was
an artist even in those early days. Th
Story of the start of the famous (Mark
Daly feud illustrates this quality. This
feud, which affected every industry
and every man. woman and child In
Montana and which finally came to a
finish tight in the United States sen
ate, was perhaps the most momentous
in Its consequences of any in American
history. Clark and Daly in the begin
ning were business associates and
friends. In fact, they Avere bound by
closer ties, for .T. Boss Clark, a youn
ger brother of the copper king, had mar
ried a sister of Daly's wife. But there
is no enmity like that of former
Daly needed a certain strip of land
to furnish water for his Anaconda
mines and offered the old fellow who
owned the 6trip $10,000 for the water
right. The owner eagerly said he
would take It, and in the morning the
deal wan to have been carried through.
Clark heard of It and gave the old fel
low $25.M) for the strip. Then lie
made Daly pay $12.1.no for it. Marcus
Daly paid the money, but swore venge

chance to report Clark resigned in a
tearful speech. The next day. however,
came an apjointmnt sfgned by Lieu
tenant Governor Spriggs appointing
W. A. Clark to the senate vacancy
created by the resignation. It appears
that Governor Smith, who was a Daly
man. was temporarily absent from the
state, and the resignation had been so
timed that the appointment could be
made by the lieutenant governor, a

broke out with redoubled fury. About
this time the copier trust, of which
Thomas V. Lawsoti has Ix-en writing

was made president. It was at this
point that F. A. Heinze. the young
copper Napoleon, came into the game.
He raised a cry against the trust, or
ganized a labor party, made Clark the
candidate for the senate and curried
the state. Daly did not live to see th
final triumph of his enemy. W. A.
Clark was elected to the full senate

there was no contest. Marcus Daly
was dead and the feud was ended.
There were after rumblings in which
Clark was chargd with having thrown

of a combination with the Standard

test of his senate seat. But these
gradually died out, and the war which
had divided a state into two hostile
camps for a generation was over.

There Is a brighter side to this ver

Clark of being u money making ma

that. They did not know hhn. Both
of his marriages were purely love
mutches, and there is a touch of ro
mance iu each. His iirst wife was the
love of Ills boyhood. After he found
a goo mine in Montana Clark went
to Columbia college to take the mining
course. He determined to know ail
about the business, as he has concern
ing every business lu which he ever
embarked. Returning home by way
of his Pennsylvania birthplace, near
Conuellsville, he found his curly sweei

to Butte. Clark was quite a fastidious
dresser In those days, as ever, aud the
minister who married him said that
tight boots would be the death of him
yet. The first Mrs. Clark, who had
been a poor ountry girl, astonished
the folks by her new llnery, and there
