STAGNATION. Heavy Blow to Colorado's Chief Industries. Thirty Thousand Men to Cease Working. STRIKE AT SMELTERS About to Paralyze Entire Mining Business. Trouble Grows Out of Eight Hour Law. New Denver, Col., June 15. Thirty thous and men in Colorado will be out of work within the next three days unless steps are taken to end the strike of the smelter employes. The Omaha and Grant and the Globe in Denver, the Bimetallic and the Ar kansas Valley at Leadville, the Filers and the Colorado smelters at Pueblo are closed. The Argo smelter in Denver has com plied with the eight hour law and is still running. The Guggenheim smelter at Pueblo also is running. The closed works are under guard but nowhere have the men made any demonstration. At Central City the men employed in the stamp mills are expected to strike today. These mines have already clos ed: The Commodore, Amethyst, Bach elor, Bachelor No. 2, and Last Chance mines in the Creede district; the Calli ope and Hagerty, at Ouray; the Carib bean and Montezuma, near Ophir; the Iron Mask and Black Iron at Red Cliff; the Smuggler at Aspen. The Porter Fuel company at Durango has closed, throwing 150 men out of work. From all parts of the state come re ports that mines are reducing forces. At Leadville 900 men have been dis charged and in view of the orders to ship no more ore to the closed smelters little except development work is going on. The loss in wages to the men at Durango by the 12 days closing of the smelter Is $50,000. Should the mines close all over the state 500 railroad men will be thrown out of employment. Four mines of the Colorado Fuel and Iron company, three near Canon City and one in Pitkin county, have been shut down on account of wage differences. DECLINES BIG OFFER. Rev. C. N. Sheldon Offered $5,000 For 50 Lectures In Europe. The modesty, which is known to be genuine, of Rev. Chas. M. Sheldon keeps from the public a number of good news items. The popularity of this now famous author causes him to re ceive many flattering offers to lecture. These offers are generally met with a refusal, and in so doing Mr. Sheldon tries to carry out the ideas in his book "In His Steps." This paper learns indirectly, but from an authentic source, that Mr. Sheldon has recently received an offer by tele gram, followed by a letter, offering him $5,000 and all his expenses for a series of fifty lectures in Europe, where sev eral million copies of "In His Steps" have been issued. When Mr. Sheldon received this offer he said: "I cannot accept it. It might ruin the influence of the book. Furthermore, I am devoted to my church in Topeka. Mr. Sheldon has accepted two Invita tions for about the middle of July to lecture at Chautauqua assemblies in Buffalo and Detroit, but for which he receives no compensation. It is un derstood that Rev. and Mrs. Sheldon may visit Europe next year. The trustees of Washburn college re cently decided to honor Mr. Sheldon with the degree of doctor of divinity, but Mr. Sheldon heard of the plan and requested the trustees not to confer it. REPORT ISSUED. ing that time the average number of I actual business In bankers' bills at $l.S7-., inmates nas Deen tnirty-nve. me in stitution is in good financial condition State Horticultural Society Book . Limited to lOO Pages. Secretary W. H. Barnes of the State Horticultural society has issued a re port which contains a record of the pro ceedings of the thirty-second annual meeting of the state society held in To peka last December. All papers pre sented at the meeting, discussions and other useful information are found in the report. Much important matter has been omitted from the report owing to the fact that the legislature limited it to 100 pages. The secretary and the pres ident. Judge Fred Welihouse, believe more space should be given to these reports and cite the fact that adjoining states permit the publication of a re port carrying from 400 to 600 pages. Mr. Barnes has already issued a val uable report upon the Kansas Apple and is now preparing another on the Kansas Peach. SCHLEY RECITES IT. The Admiral Gives Iron quill's Dewey Lines at a Banquet. Glen Miller, formerly of Kansas, but now of Salt Lake City, writes to a per sonal friend in Topeka about a banquet given a few evenings ago by Governor Wells of Utah, to Rear Admiral Schley. Mr. Miller says that on that occasion the admiral recited, with much expres sion, Ironquill's famous Dewey poem, as follows: "O. Dewey was the morning. Upon the first of May, And Dewey was the admiral Down in Manila bay; And Dewey were the Regent's eyes, Them' orbs of royal blue! And Dewey feel discouraged? I Dew not think we Dew." Mr. Miller says that Admiral Schley gave credit to a "Kansas poet" and that the recitation was received with cheers. WICHITA MASONIC HOME. Board Holds Its Annual Meeting and Re-elects Officers. Wichita, June 15. The board of man agers of the Masonic home in this city held its annual meeting Tuesday. During the past year $8,000 has been expended in improvements. The board decided to build a four room hospital on the ground owing to the prevalence of sickness of late among the inmates. The sick cannot now be cared for properly, as it is not possible to separate them from the other inmates. The new building will not be an expensive one, but will be equipped in the best manner and be large enough to accommodate the sick of the institution. The expenses of the institution during the past year have been $5,000. Dur- and has been conducted in a safe and careful manner. The officers of the board were reelected. CUBANS BUY GUNS. In Order to Get tbe $75 From the Government. Havana, June 15. Lieut. Col. W. H. Bisbee paid 350 men at Guanajay yes terday and there are 500 still unpaid. The arms of those who have been paid have been delivered to the alcalde. Many of those who had no arms de manded arms from the mayor but were refused. The men then assumed a threatening attitude and the officers in command ordered the troops to guard the building and telegraphed to General Brooke asking permission to extend the time of payment, as some of the Cubans are entirely destitute and many of them without means of returning to their homes. A guard was quartered in the town all night and the signal office was kept open waiting for the governor general's message granting an extension of the time. The Cubans bought all the re volvers in town and Cuban officers hav ing rifles sold them for as much as $25. The arms will probably be returned if the men are not paid as they were only purchased as a means of obtaining the paymaster's recognition. At Cardenas, Policemen Rodriguez and Hernendez who were off duty were gathering fruit about a league from town when they were attacked by Mar teli Ribero and Felix Piloto, two out laws, who escaped from jail in May. Rodriguez was shot through the abdo men and retreated to the city. The out laws were armed with Mauser rifles and mounted on horses stolen last week. At Romedios the payment of the Cubans continues briskly. Many who gave up their arms.in May have been asking the alcalde to return them in order to en able them to receive payment. POURING IX. Protests Against Asylum Location Kansas Editor's Despair. Decatur county, the home of Frank Reeder, the Populist representative who stood by Clay Center in the balloting for the new asylum, has sent a lon protest to the governor against the ac tion of the committee. The protest is on the blanks sent out from Clay Center but it contains about 100 signatures. The signers of the doc ument are representatives of all politi cal parties and are leading business men and citizens. A western Kansas editor, residing in the Fifth district, has written a per sonal letter to the governor concerning the asylum scandal in which he says: "What's the use of having an invest igation. We can't find out the facts. The committee, we know, made a good thing out of the deal and put the asylum in an out of the way place. So let 'er go at that and fight it out in the campaign." This letter.whileittookthe governor's breath for a moment, amused him very much. Race Track Improvements Sold. St. Louis, June 15. All the improve ments, including the long grand stand, the massive betting ring inclosure and other buildings of the Madison race track at Madison, 111., have been sold to a wrecking company for $400. The wrecking company will clear the ground, which will probably be used by the Terminal association as a switch ing yard. The Madison track was started in 1S92, but after running sev eral years it was compelled to close down. TODAY'S MARKET REPORT. Chicago. June 15.

New York, June 15. Foreign houses are without orders for London account. Those who are inclined to be bearish on Sugar should permit facts to govern them. The American Sugar Refining company is not a trust in any sense of the word: it is not a monopoly, nor does it interfere with anybody, individuals or congregations of capital, going into the sugar retinin busi ness. For many years the American Su gar Refining company has paid its divi dends at the rate of 12 per cent and there is nothing, as far as Well street Is con cerned, that will prevent the payments of its profits taking place .at the same late. Tne feeling on coal stocks is vs confi dent as it has been at anv time and higher prices are looked for. Mr. Flower i. bull ish on B. R.
