We 1 le.un that he is employing 13 men 011 his ! properties and that they now' have every thing in readiness to start up the conceit- ' itrator whieh they have been erecting for i tsome time past in order to test the values the ores. The gentlemen associated 1 [with Mr. Gallitnore have done a large I mount of development work on the J opper King group, and are thoroughly •11 pleased with the present showing <1 enthusiastic for the future of the operty. The concentrator was ready start at the time of Mr. Galliuiore's! parturt*. hut it was found that the iter wheel was not large enough to run P e plant, so improvements were made, "dty Uhs time the concentrator is ruu mg.

Do^ie's Bracelets The French poodle has set the fashion for New York's swell pups in the way of 14-carat gold brace lets, ablaze with jewels ahd spangles, with which to adorn his high born legs, and with a collar and shoulder harness to correspond. The bracelets may be made in any style to meet the fancy of the dog owner. The most conservative of those shown are of rolled plate made in the fashion of thin rows of small gold links, studded with chip diamonds. Other stones may he used if preferred, and sometimes unique]}' carved spangles arc added. Most often there will be but one bracelet worn, and then it is always on the left leg. Two are quite proper, how ever, and sometimes even as many as three of the golden bands, all of entirely different designs. Winston Won The Nomination. The Minneapolis Journal has been touching up the history of Colonel Pat rick Winston of Spokane. Maybe it isn't exactly history, but this anecdote isn't so bad : Frederick Homans of Tacoma tells how Attorney General Winston of Wash ington state secured his nomination to that office. It was all ow ing to a happy reply which he made in the state con vention of 1896 to a question which was addressed to him on the fbx»r. He was at that time a candidate for the nomina tion for attorney general. Populism was running high in the state; everybody was poor, and the feeling was widespread that the countrys wealth was wrongly distributed. Winston, who was as habt as a skating rink, was addressing a convention, when up rose a six footer from the country districts, with a flaming mass of populist l>card covering his face, ami hair coming ( )owii to his shoulders in luxuriant masses. He wanted to ask the speaker a question. Permission being granted him, he queried; 'Colonel Winston, how do you explain ; the unequal distribution of wealth in the ; United States?" I Winston, although he knew that in the then state of mind of the people the question was an important one, answered it without hesitation, saying: "I will replv to your question in goc <1 old New England fashion—by asking an other; 'How do you, my friend,'" first rubbing his own bald pate and then pointing at the chrysanthemum-like head of the countryman, " 'how do you account for the unequal distribution of hair in the i United States?' " The convention stampeded for Win ston, and he was made attorney general as the result of that answer. Deputy Sheriff Foresman went to be fand to-day to make an arrest for a viola tion of the State license law. l ] This Afiican city sgys the Philadelphia Press was named for a lady: "This was the wife of General Sir Har ry Smith, whose marriage, by the way, was one of the romances of the Pen insular war. At that time two voung British officers in a Spanish town, which had just been occupied by an English force, were surprised by a visit from two very young and Ireautiful Spanish girls of the better class. These fair callers begged protection in the alarming cir cumstances in which they had been placed by the occupation of the rougher soldierly. Their request was, of course, gallantly granted, and in a short time one of the officers, General Smith, found himself desperately in love. Indue time he married the woman whom he had protected. The marriage proved a hap py one." Our Smallpox Scare. Dr. S. S. Johnson, the city health offi cer, reports no new cases of the so-called smallpox. The last case reported is more than nine days old, so the danger of con tagion is past. If this mild disease were smallpox it would be better than vaccination and not as severe or dangerous. If the prevailing disease would afford immunity from real smallpox it w'ould l>e a blessing rather than a curse to the family that might contract it. However, it is not generally l>elieved to he smallpox, and of course it would not afford immunity from the dread disease. This skin disease has vis ited every community in the Northwest in the past year, and the idea of itslieing smallpox is ridiculed in many places since the first scare has subsided. In any event there is no ground for fear. If it should be small pox it would be better than vaccination. If it is a mere itch, only sanitation and not quar antine is demanded to stay its ravages. New Law Point Raised. Supreme court has revised the judg ment of the second district court in the case of ('has. O. Keen, appellant, vs. Gustav J. Ilalin and wife, respondents, from Latah county. The decision dis poses of an interest respecting the time when land purchased from the govern ment under the pre-emption filing be comes community property as against a mortgage lien. The action was brought to forclose a mortgage given for money loaned to pay the cost of proving up ami flaying the government. The decision says in part: "While it is true that the défendent Haliu has an inchoate right in said lands after his fil ing for and settlement on said land so long as he complied with the pre-emption laws of congress, such right did not ripen into a title until the last requirements of said laws had been complied with, to w it: Making final proof and payment of mon :y. He did not own said land until said proof and payment were made and the community could not own it therefore at that time. 'Hence, we conclude that said real es täte was a community property at the time said mortgage was executed and the mortgage lien is prior to any right of the wife." News From Imnaha. F. E. Johnessc, superintendent of the Delta group which is being developed by the Idaho Exploration and (kipper company, rode out to Grange ville y este day and reported a wonderful showing, in the face, of what is called the Last Chance drift. He reported 38 inches of ore that had increased 30 per cent in value in a distance of five feet, and that the angle of increase in width of the ledge was one inch to the foot. This ore had assayed over 20 per cent at last report. This increase will make over 25 per cent or $92.50 per ton, for the copper values with gold enough to pay for mining and milling the ore. This Last Chance drift is looked upon as the test of the camp. The ledge is one of the smallest surface showings, but it is in the most solid formation. The cropping occured at a level of a per manent flow of spring water, and there was evidence at hand that the mountain, at that point had been subject to no movement that would expose the primary ore body to surface influences that wouhl he liable to cause radical changes. This occurance of high grade ore is very encouraging, as it is a test of the camp that must he taken for a erterion. It practially demonstrates the existence of millions of tons of high grade c the Delta group. It demonstrates the theory that the iron caps of the camp cover copper sulphdes which are the primary deposits. This result of developement is of especial significance in as much as it establishes the fact that the copper of the whole Snake river belt is primary ore. It will inspire new faith in all prosjx'cts in that region. If the copper is a [»ri mary ore the mineralized zones will surely increase in volume ami value with depth. Joel Shomaker of Yakatna was in thi: city yesterday leaving for Spokane this morning. Mr. Shomaker is a journalist of wide experience. He spends his lime now whole! y at literary work selling his articles in the market for what they are worth to the publisbeis. VIGOROUS VALUES IN FOOTWEAR Must l>e had in this weather.

KJOS, Wholesale and Retail Admiral Dewey's Bride. Mrs. Dewey is 41 years old, but docs not look it. Of medium height, inclined to stoutness, she possesses marked dig nity, verging to hauteur, with little of the democracy of manner that conduces to universal popularity. There is a touch of reserve in her bearing when among strangers. Her crowning beauty is her abundant auburn hair that the years have touched with grey, worn rolled high from her forehead in the prevailing style. Mrs. Dewey's taste in dress is of the sim plest, inclining to plain black material of the soft clinging quality that lends grace to the figure. Her usual costume when out driving, for she seldom walks, is a black cloth tailor-made suit, lightened by simple white lace ruche, a long sable fur cape in cold weather that completely envelops her. and small black bonnet with short hrussels net veil fitting close over the face. I11 evening dress she is seen at her lx*st, while silk lieing her favorite mate rial, with corsage bouquet of some deli cate hot-house blossom, usually the vio let. When arrayed for an evening recep tion Mrs. Dewey looks her prettiest and her delicately rounded arms possess the soft whiteness of an infant's. Though owning fine jewels, she seldom wears anything but a string of pearls about her neck. She is a warm friend of the Duchesse de Arcos, wife of the Spanish Minister, whom Admiral Dewey admired when she was Miss Virginia Lowry. Outside of the diplomatic corps, among whom she enjoys a large acquaintance, Mrs. Dewey counts among her warmest friends the members of St. John's P. K. church, in which she long held a sitting. The wife of the rector, Mrs. McKay Smith, is one for whom she holds a high personal regard. Mrs. McKim, wife of the rector of Epiphany church, is an other dear friend. The list is a long one, including the representative names of the District. Among them are the Mont gomery Blairs, including Mrs. Ritchie. Mrs. Frank Blair, who lives on Lafayette square, and her daughter Mrs. Janin, formerly the beautiful Violet Blair. The Blairs and Ritchies belong to the old colonial aristocracy, few of whom are to be found in these days at the national capital. The famous old mansion oppo site the State, War and Navy Department 011 Pennsylvania avenue, has a history dating ltack to the days of our first Presi dent. Other friends of distinguished family are the Misses McKean, descend ants of the signers of the Declaration, whose home on Seventeenth street, just >p|x»site the Government buildings, is one of the oldest landmarks left. Mrs. Dewey is a very reserved matron, but is credited with great ambition. While blessed with a goodly share of this world's goods through inheritance from her father, the late Washington McLean of Ohio, she yet complains she has less money than is possessed by other members of the family. I am the poor member of the family" she often says. At the Metropolitan Club, where the admiral can be found "after hours," the latest pun, w hich is always told if possible in his presence, is the grave comment: Isn't it strange the admiral should get another hazin' at his age?" Mrs. Dewey is the sister of John R. McLean, late democrat candidate for governor of ( Hilo. 11er late husband was General William B 11 a/on of the signal rvice. One sister is Mrs. Ludlow, wife of General Ludlow, present governor of Havana. Her mother is Mrs. Washing ton McLean, who lent Dewey hei house after his return from Manila. Mrs. Dewey had been widowed 12 years. Her first marriage occurred w hen she was 19. Her husband was then a captain in the line of the army. Soon after his marriage he was transferred to the signal corps, and finally was pro moted to its chieftancy, w ith the rank of brigadier general. Two children W'»*re born to them John McLean Iützen, named for her brother who was the dem ocratic cadidate for governor of Ohio, and Mildred. Mildred died while a baby. John grew lip to lx* a tnanly, robust fel low, fond of athletics and general out door exercises. Alxwt 18 months ago he was throw n from a horse and instantly killed on Staten island, near New York. He was then 2^ years old. The shock almost killed his mother. Since the tragedy she has lxen much in retirement. Previous to it she was an rcknowledged leader in the most exclu sive society of the capital. Prior even to this tragedy Admiral, then Com modore, Dewey was conspicuosly at tentive to the then Mrs. Ilazeu. So were a half score or more of the most eligible beaux of Washington. Notable among them were Major General John M. Scofield and Major General Wesley Merritt, both of w hom have since mar ried; Secretary of the Navy Hilary A. Aerlx*rt and Adjutant General II. C. Corbin. Her eugag« nient has lxen re jiorted to them from time to time and to several other men of national prominence hut as a matter of fact she constantly ex pressed her determination never to emerge from her widowhood. The hero of Manila was the only man who could make her change her mind. The cn gagement was a great surprise to the ad miral's friends 111 Washington, including the meinlx-m of the Metropolitan Club, who thought they knew him very well. Admiral and Mrs. Dewey will have an ample income and live among agreeable friends, who know and like them. The admiral's pay, with allowance, amounts to f i7,o<kj a year. Ills wife has a hand some income of her own, and in addition [ will inherit $800,ouo some day from her 1 mother. Sheet Music Are the rafjes : T I,ov<il You Once, I Scorn You Now." Sont;.

The deni was closed yesterday in Minneapolis by George II. Reiner, of the Spokane firm of Hetrin & Reiner. While de finite figures are not made public, it is known that tin price of the propeity is in the immediate vicinity of $750,000. The Montreal syndicate chose to make the deal quietly, and the idenity of the parties who are prominent in it is con cealed from the public. I/mdon capital is at the back of the deal. II. M. Heriiu received the news of tbe consummation of the deal in a telegram from his part tier yesterday. "We have lxen at work on this for some time," he said. "Mr. Reiner wires that the papers have been signed in Minneapolis, and that he leaves at once for Montreal to consult with the new owners of the mine. The property was controlled by John R. Sear les, the New York sugar king. The Ixmd runs until April 1, 1900. As our principals have enjoined us to strictest secrecy about their plans, I can only tell you that the price is well up toward the top of six figures. A large cash jxiy ment has been made to the owners, and a sinn has lxen [»laced in Iwruk sufficient to carry development 'orward during the enter term of the bond. "While this ileal has licen pending the owners of the Cornucopia group have been pushing developmi nt with 60 men. They have just opened on the lowest level seven feet of ore that w ill average $15 l*r ton." The Comm « pi » group, known br-t***r lo dly C ••..*' IDI..C o. in the Eagle mountains, near the head of Pine creek, 45 miles northeast of Baker City in an air line. The Union-Com panion group comprises 30 claims. The development has opened the ore bodies to a depth of 600 feet below the apex of the vein. The mine has lieen oneued by 10,000 feet of tunnel, shafts and cross cuts. A 20 stamp mill with twelve con centrating tables is run by electricity from a 100 horse power dynamo. The equipment includes a seven drill air compressor. The average milling value of the ore is said to be $15 per ton, with concentrates running from $200 to $250 per ton. The value of the ore is said to improve with depth. The width of the vein is said to be from two to twenty feet. Other ledges are in process of de velopment on the group. The Union-Companion group was bonded to Finch & Campbell six months * ago for $600,000. The bond was thrown up, but for what reason bus not !>ecn made public. The property was inspect ed shortly after the bond was taken by a number of Chicago and Youngstown, Ohio, capitalists. J W. Riley is in the city with some copper ore from the Salmon river region 111 this county. Mr. Riley is a practical miner and a gt.rxl prospector. He has put in the summer working and prospect ing in the vicinity of the Mary K. mine, at the mouth of Cottonwood creek. He has found some good ledges, and one sample assayed 60 per cent in copper. Mr, Riley is interested with Frank Tap 1 in and others in ten claims. One of the rich claims, the Emma, was secured only by an all-night ride over a mountain ira. I head a - mjetitor.
