ROW OVER A MINE.
The Owner Claims That He Deeded
It Away While Drugged.
Eoise City, Idaho. Oct. 31.— A sensa
tional mining suit has been filed in the
United States Court here by Arthur Neal
of Seattle against Fred Page Tustin and
H. F. Parker of Seattle and several Boise
people interested in the Eldora Mining
Company, operating in the Xeal district,
about thirty miles from Boise. Neal sold
two valuable mines to R. P. Plowman, a
Boise capitalist, for $1000, receiving half
in cash and tbe balance in notes secured
by mortgage. Nt.-al alleges that Tustin
and Parker got hold of him in Seattle and
kept him under their influence for over
two weeks by means of drugs.
Dunng that time he -igned what he
thinks is a power of attorney authorizing
Tustin to foreclose the mortgage. He says
he might have signed a deed to everything
he possessed. Tustin foreclosed the mort
gage in his own name, and it is claimed be
never paid Neal a cent. The Eldora
Company wag formed by purchasing the
mine from Plowman, agreeing to give him
$15,000 and one-balf of tbe stock of the
company. Xeal asks for a receiver to take
charge of tbe property. Plowman claims
tbat no money has been paid him by the
company, and a story reaches this city to
night that be has barricaded the mine and
is keeping Tustin and Parker off with
rifles. Serious trouble is expected. Tustin
is well known throughout Oregon and
Washington as an attorney.

HOW THEY FARED.
Treatment of Fishermen
Narrative of One of Them Giving
His Experience During the
Season at Karluk.
One of the forty-five fishermen who
went up to Karlnk, Alaska, last April
from this city, John Jose Fonseca by
name, does not tell a very flattering tale
of the treatment by Agent H. C. Thomas
of the Hume Canning and Trading Com
pany, by whom they were employed. The
fishermen returned en the 22d inst. by tbe
bark Marguerite, having left Alaska on the
9th, and being favored with fair winds all
the way down. His story is as follows:
"We left here April 2, under an agree
ment with H. C. Thomas, representing the
Hume Canning and Trading Company, to
go to Karluk and put up a cannery. Under
our agreement we were to receive what
ever were the current wages, free medical
treatment in case of sickness and such ac
commodations as would be reasonable in
a cold and wild country like Alaska.
"On May 29 we arrived at Karluk, and
on the afternoou of the fourth day there
we landed. The beach was very rough.
There were forty-five of us altogether —
twenty-one Portuguese and the others
"Our lighter, in which wo were trying
to go allure with our kitchen and cooks,
became swamped In the heavy surf and
everything got wet — mattresses, blankets
and everything. The cook had a red hot
stove, preparing our supper for us, but the
HCcident spoiled our supper.
"It was very cold— fret-zing— and we had
to make the lest of it and dry our blankets
as well as we could, fur Mr. Thomas made
no shift for us whatever that day. He
did, however, put up a very small tent for
us next day.
"Owing to our great lack of accommoda
tions and the state of the weather five of
our men became sick. We «sked Mr.
Tuoma* for eoine mediciue. His answer
was that he would give us som- as boom as
the meaicine chest came ashore. Several
days we waited, but no medicine did we
get. Then we a«ked again, and Mr.
Thomas to d us the meaicine chest was
broken. That was the excuse he gave. All
lie had wa.< some pain-killer, and every
time we got a dose of that he charged us
25cent3 for if. Every time after hat when
we would ask him to provide us with medi
cine he would tell us that s.>ni« would ar
rive on the mail steamer iroin Sao Fran
cisco and that we would have to wail for
it. The mail steamer, however, never
came until the day we left Karluk.
"Seeing that we could get no medicine
from Mr. Thomas we wont to Samuel
Matthews, the superintendent of the Kar
luk Packing Company and Mr. Matthews
let ns have whatever we wanted freely.
"It was understood thai we -bouid do
all kinds of work until and after the fisli
ing season, which we did. We were to do
beach work, build the cannery and con
struct a breakwater, all of which we did,
and according to our agreement we were
to recmve the same w;iees as were Dald by
the Karluk Packing Company.
"A'ter we had worked twenty days we
learned that the Kirluk Packing Company
was paying $12 50 a thousand fjgli and $40
a month for work other than fishing, SI 50
a day being paid for beach work. So we
wen: on a strike for the same wages. As
a result he came to ns nnd agreed by a
written contract to give us the same wages
as were paid by the other company. VV«
therefore went back to work.
"In about a mouth some of our gang be
gan saving the contract was no good. We
went to Mr. Thomas and he told us it was
"However, when we were paid off here,
we did not receive within $20 each of
what we supposed we 9houl<l get. We got
only 5163, after waiting four days.
whereas we should have received accord
ing to our calculations $181 each. The
difference is accounted for in the fact that
Mr. Thonms allowed us only for every
daj we worked, at $1 50 a day, docking us
for every day we diil not work. When we
submitted our contract to our lawyer, C.
T. Sullivan, he told us tbat it was all one
sided—in Mr. Tho as' favor— and that
we could do nothing.
"We worked up to October 9. Two
months we spent in the cannery. Tl c

A ROARIN' GAME.
Scotchmen Plan a Curl
PLAYED IN SUNSET CITY.
New Subscriptions Received at Head
quarters Yesterday— More Coun
ties Heard From.
A grand gathering of veteran Scottish
sports is being arranged in connection
with the Midwinter Fair. Hundreds of
Scotchmen in this city and vicinity are
interested in the plan to bold a curling
bonspiel on the ic9 rink, for which a con
cession has been granted to Donaldson &
Curling has been popular in Scotland
for the last three centuries and Is a dis
tinctly Scottish pastime. Robert Burns
immortalized it as "too roarin' same,"
from the noise made by the curling stone
as it alides along the rink. It is played
only on ice and is a game for points in
which there la abundant opportunity for
great dexterity. The stones are runde of
granite, circular in form, with a six-incli
concave on * the top and bottom. They
weigh from thirty-five to fifty pounds, are
from thirty to thirty-six inches in ciicum-

ference, tbe height being about one-eighth
of the girth.
On a rink 42 yards long the game is
played. At either end is the tee, from
which the player starts the stone, the ob
ject being to sei.d it as near as possible to
the tee at the other extremity of the rink.
A ring of seven-feet radius \* drawn on
ihe ice arouud the tee. The stones which
settle within this circle count one pomt
each when all bave curled in turn. A
stone reposing near tbe tee may be dis
placea, however, by the succeeding player.
All laggard stones that manifest a pig
like indoienc? and do nit pass tbe well
named hog score, which is drawn at a dis
tance of one-sixth tbe rink from eacb tee,
are removed as obstructing cumberers of
the rink. The movement of the heavy
curline-stones wears away the ice, form
ing a sort of crushed lc», and this retards
the movement of the stone. If it appeors
that a stone will stop short of the tee the
friendly players brush awar tbe impeding
ice with brooms with which each is armed.
Matches are played with numerous com
petitors formed into rinks of four players
on a side, two stones being used by each
playfr. The first man to send a stone
flying down tbe rink does the least im
portant work of the four. Then follows
the second pl-.yer. the male playing tnird
and the skip fourth. Tbe members of the
opposing aide ß play alternately
At first the game is remarkably simple,
the player endeavoring to top tbe tee and
his immediate opponent having a similar
object in view.
During the progress of the game, when
one, two or more stones have been well
planted, the supporters of those who so
placed them are directed by their skip
ratber to guard its winning stones than to
venture too near at the risk of injuring
their position. On the other hand the tac
tics of the opposing party consist in ef-

forts to knock off the guards, dislodge the
well-planted stones and get their own still
be'ter placed where the latter is possible.
It sometimes happens tbat the stone
nearest the tee is so well protected that it
cannot be touched directly and can only
be removed by an ingenious master-strike,
technically called inringing, whereby
■•■ sione is sent in an oblique direction to
hit the winner, and to become Itself the
winner in turn. Critical stages in the
game are periods of great excitement, and
not even the bagpipes so arouse Scottish
enthusiasm as a closely contested curling

Confidence Is Restored by
FOREIGN CAPITAL COMING.
Banking Men Give Their Opinions
on the Silver Repeal Bill and
Financiers and bankers felt that a load
bad been lifted from their shoulders yes
terday by the silver repeal bill. Their
conversation almost unanimously assumed
a hopeful tone that clearly betrayed new
conn'dence in themselves and the people.
"It is the dawn of a new and better era,"
said one of them significantly.
A 9 a rule the men who preside over the
destinies of San Francisco's banking in
stitutions accept tbe repeal as a ten- fit to
fiuanre, industry and commerce. How
ever, there is some divergence of opinion,
and that principally toward a belief that
the bill is at least a step in the right direc
tion. Those who hold this opinion are not
backward in expressing it as a conviction,
au.i also that the tariff be either left alone,
or tariff reform definitely settled belorethe
country c an feel a full clow of prosperity.
"The repeal bill took nobody by sur
prise," said the president of the German
Savings Bank. "We knew what was
coming, and it was discounted a week ago.
It will have an excellent effect. For in
stance, it will bring out a great deal of
gold from safe-deposit vaults ana stock
ings, or wherever gold is hoarded. People
were afraid and kept money hidden away
until the repeal bill would be passed. Tbe
effect on savings banks is this: money
will be deposited because people know
they will be paid back in gold coin instead
of a depreciated currency, which would
hav6 been the case with silver on its old
basis. The banks will be able to
realize easily on securities on Recount of

countries into the United Slates for in

"I think It will have a very beneficial
effect," said I. W. Bellman, president of
the Nevada Bank. "It will tend to re
store c nS<ience, which \* wanted more
than anything else now. If the bill had
not been repealed we might have exported
a good deal of gold, and the reverse is now
the case. One million dollar* left London
yesterday for New York. 1 think foreign
erf, frighlened that we would pay their
investments in silver, art* now satisfied
they will be paid in cold and they will
make large investments here again.
"I believe now If the tariff is judiciously
reformed by next spring we'll have very
grind limes in the United States.
"Repeal can only affect us beneficially
locally as far as I can see. In our exports
people will buy more of our produce and
we will get better prices for it. With
BtaftDHtion existing all over the country it
couldn't be expected much business would
be done. Tliis is changed now and prices
ought to be better. 1 aui satis

have not taken advantage of the strin
gency, luterest is not high here, and none
of the commercial backs refuse to accom
modate clients. Relative values between
gold and silver remain the same. Money
bas not been more plentiful for a long time
than at present. I'm firmly of the opinion
that silver will bring a better price with ut
legislation than with it. Supply and de
mand will control its value, i believe in a
double standard, but that can only be ar
ranged in thfl monetary conference be

of the Angle-California Bank. "I think

will be decisive action on the tariff, either
putting an alteration into force or stipu

very sick ; it la down to 68 to-day and will
be 65 in January.
"U> never can have » return to pros

our manufacturers and importer*. Money
is accumulating in London and New York
and is extremely cheap, being about 12 per

A modern Department Store
Ours is a strictly cash business. We do not
credit a living soul. The receiptsor one day are
Invested In bareralns for the next. In ten years
there has not been such a slump in values in the
New York Mart. The biggest and most solid
manufacturers have been obliged to raise money
through forced sales. The banks were exhausted
and could not assist further. We were on the spot
with our tempting bag or gold, which was seized
with the eagerness that a man dying of thirst
.rasps at a drop or water. Only department stores
who sell for cash are in a position to lay down
their gold and nictate terms to the man who most
have it or seek seclusion in the Sheriff's gold.
We will surprise you with our prices, astonish
you with our qualities. Three buyers unite in
their selection, and as three heads know more
than one they should be prime in style and price,
constantly bettering our wares and reducing
