Mr. Wismyer, of the Santa Fe, Has a Gold Machine. Yesterday a machine was tested and proved a success which promises a for tune to its inventor and the members of the company which has been building- it. says the Emporia Gazette. The invention Is a machine to separate the gold from tailings and sand which can't Vie made to pay in any other way. The inventor is Conductor Henry Wismyer. Several other railroad men are in p rested in the machine and were pres ent at the test which was made down on Second avenue and Commercial street in a carpenter shop. Mr. Wismyer has been working- on the machine several years. Some time ago he got it so it would work but now he has perfected nearly every detail and has applied for; a patent. The test was made yesterday on the poorest quality of pay dirt. In the pan this dirt hardly showed a particle of "color" and in the best gold separating machine hitherto known, this yielded only 42 cents to the cubic yard. In the test made yesterday it yielded $5.20 worth of gold to the cubic yard. The machine itself looks something like a half sized threshing" mac hine only somewhat more complicated. Mr. Wismyer refuses to discuss the principle on which the ma chine extracted the gold until he re ceives a patent on it. SELECTS A NAME. Rock Island-Frisco New Orleans Ex tension Plans. Chicago, 111., June 28. The Chicago, St. Ixuiis, Memphis and New Orleans railway company will be the name of j the Hock Island-f risco extension to New Orleans, and this road will take in the Chicago and Eastern Illinois, the St. I,ouis, Memphis and Southeastern t nd the New Orleans extension and terminals, making a system of about l.r.OO mips. This system will form a through line from Chicago to New Or leans and a water lvel line from St. Louis south, and it should be an im portant factor for the New Orleans trade and a strong competitor of the Illinois Central and Louisville and Nashville. It is the purpose of the Frisco-Rock Island management to make of New ' trleans an important export point, and the Frisco-Rock Island system of 15,000 miles of road will throw its export busi ness to New Orleans and get a long haul, inst ad of turning it over to the eastern lines for transportation to the Atlantic coast ports. It may be decid ed to include the Choctaw, Oklahoma and C.ulf line about 1.000 miles into the new system. which road would prove a valuable feeder for New Orleans bus iness. Items from Dodge City.

Mulvane Tries to Discuss Judgeship With President. Washington, June 26. National Com mitteeman Mulvane, of Kansas, called at the White House Thursday and had a 15 minutes' conference with the presi dent, during which he brought up the matter of the appointment of a succes sor to Judge Hook on the district bench, and also touched upon ex-Senator Har ris' selection as one of the members of the isthmian canal commission. He put in a forcible word for Judge Smith, but soon discovered that the president has not given the Kansas judgeship any consideration. Nor would the president commit himself on the canal eommis- sior.ership. It is undei stood that Judge Hook will not resign from the district bench until he has been confirmed by the senate as a member of the circuit bench for the Eighth United States ju dicial circuit. F.x-Senator Harris is now in Washing ton, waiting for some action to be ta ken on the canal commission. It is pret ty well understood that the president has formed the commission in his mind, but is not yet ready to announce his choice. He is expected to do so, how ever, immediately on receiving news from Colombia, that the htst obstacle in the way of the canal has been removed. This news is expected at a compara tively early date. It is said that one of the places to be filled by a Democrat will go to Texas, and in this the friends of Senator Har ris are seeing a rather unfavorable sign as regards his prospects of receiving one of the appointments. Another thing that is raising an element of doubt regarding him is the statement attributed to the president during a recent conversation that it is his intention to go outside of the circle of former members of con gress to fill the commission. Mr. Harris is still hopeful, however. He is strongly indorsed by business in terests, particularly from the middle west, and has demonstrated that he is extremely popular with all the political elements. He and Mulvane had a short talk after the latter left the White House, but neither of the parties would discuss the character of the news from the White House. Mulvane left for New York last night.

Nichols, president of dis trict No. 1 United Mine Workers of America, was elected secretary of the board. The meeting was harmonious arid rules were adopted to govern the session. From present indications there will be no need to call in an umpire to settle titty disagreements among mem bers of the board, as both sides are pro ceeding with the work in a, reasonable and Just manner. After organizing the rules to govern were adopted and this was followed by an informal discussion of the grievances pending. The meet ing adjourned to assemble on Thursday next when various grievances will be taken up. The sessions were private. The operators' representatives deny they will raise any objection to John Mitchell appearing before the board in Interest of mine workers. Mr. Connell said t "The miners have the privilege of se lecting Mr. Mitchell or any one they pleo.se' to represent them at the meet ing." Deposed from Office. Detroit. June 26.
