Its sitt ings will lie as long drawn

this matter with the committee.
A comparison of mining and

that in mining there is a profit of
300 per cent, with 35 per cent
failures, while manufacturing
ranges from 10 to 25 per cent,
with failures 95 per cent,

Joe in Buffalo many years ago,
where, according to the story,
she had loved not wisely but too
well; had been discarded by her

Senator Fairbanks of Indiana
has consented to the use of his
name as a candidate for vice
president, on the ticket with
Roosevelt. If it were not for the
overshadowing strength of
Roosevelt, Senator Fairbanks
would have been prominently
considered by the republican
party for the first place on the
ticket. He is a strong man and
regarded by the conservative
element of the party as a thor
oughly safe man. His name will
add strength to the ticket from
an eastern stand point, and with
him on it New York and Indiana
may be regarded as entirely safe
for the republicans. Senator
Fairbanks is strong as a national
figure, being a conspicuous factor
in all legislation of importance
corning up in the senate, but is
strong in his own state. In the
eastern states he is regarded as
the exponent of conservatism on
financial questions and will offset
what is considered as radicalism
on the part of Roosevelt. He will
be entirely satisfactory to the
