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.

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.

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.

Cornucopia Mine Sold.
A Montreal syndicate has secured the
Cornucopia group of mines in rarstem
Oregon, says the Spokane Review. 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

rich claims, the Emma, was secured only
