Tile country is confronted by anothetr trust. This time it Is different. It Is an Indian relic trust. A dispatch fromlt Omaha furnilshlts the detailsl. A Iteeoting was held by the ()tIahas and Wi\nnela gos on their reservations Ilear there several days ago and a relic trust was tormed. Great Thunder, a leading flan cler of the Winnebagos, was elected president. Great Thunder's slecially Is making bows and arrows. Green Italn bow and Prairie Chicken, makers of belts, and John A. Logan, manufacturer of eagle feather war bonnets, were made directors. All the -members of the tribes s'lLt obey these leaders In matters per talnlng to the pirices of Indian goods. Of course Mr. Bryan will now jump on the Indians and wipe the remnant of that great race from the face of the earth. MEIAL AND COAL ABROAD. d Mr. Foster, a well-known British statistician, has recently made a com pilation of statistics of mineral produc ilon, which shows some points of curl Ous interest. It appears, for example, that, while Great Britain and her de )endencies produced in 1900 248,000,000 tons of coal, the United States produced 245,000,000 tons, a difference of only 3,000, 000. Still more interesting is the fact that the nearly 500,000,000 tons thus produced Iby the two countries was nearly two thirds of the entire production of the world. The country standing next in amount--Germany-was about 100,000,000 tons behind either of these leaders. Another curious point is that the out put of gold of the British empire in that year approximated one-half that of the entire world, notwithstanding the South African troubles. Again, of the 4,500,000 persons employed In the mines In 1900, 1,500,000 were British and only 500,000 were American, yet eAmerica pushed Great Britain close in coal lproduction and led all the other stations I. that of iron, copper, lead and sine. This seems very surprising till we tind that machinery Is used in mining in this country to a far ;;reater extent than in any other. This points to what is probably one of the chief reasons for our enormous industrial advance in re cent years. Oddly enough, too, while the death sate by accident in mining Is 1.92 per thousand for the world, it is only 1.05 per thousand-the lowest rate of all-In Bel glum, and yet, speaking from recollec tion, there has seemed to be more dis content culminating in violence among Belgian miners than among any others. In Southeastern Europe, where there is about as little trouble with miners as anywhere, accident kills them off at the rate of about eight per thousand. In the United States the rate Is stated at 3.29 per thousand. Possibly our use of machinery may account in part for our higher than average death rate, but the temperament of the people and the high pressure under which all American work Is done probably account for more of It. In elthor ease, however, It is too high. The ('nicago c'hroncle reviews these figures aond thinks there is no good reason why we should slaughter more than three Ilmes ais niniy nmine workers as do the. IelglRns, through accident, which is too often only it mlisnonmer for re'klessneiss of fore.man or worker, or 'both.

NEW HAND AT THE HELM. Thie neiws Is fully confrmedlll that MIadauno Illrackcett has been placed in absolute control of the Heinze press bu reau In New York and 1Hoston. llere Is one of the distinguished lady's latest outputs: An Anacondai director stares that the Anaconda Interests and loeinze have harmronized. Anaconda people are de clared to be large underwriters in Helnze's new comupany. Heinz. is ad Initted to be in complete control of Mon tana affairs. The director is quoted further as saying: "We shall pay a great price for peace, including the ad mission of Heinze's personal supremacy in the state. It is our only way. After reading this It can only be a matter of regret to .V. Heinze that he did not sooner turn over his literary and journalistic affairs to the gifted and \ersatlle Mad.( no Brackett. Governor Toole, speaking of the pro posed site for the Montana building at the World's Fair grounds, says: "I arr sure that Montana can erect a creditable; building on the site chosen. I am as sured by ,Mr. Taylor that the place is easily accessible to street car lines, as ,well as the prospective intermural rail road, so that visitors may ascend the height without difficulty. That, I think, Is one of the chief considerations-a, cessibility to the public." After the gov ernor foots It out for it while to to the in accessible eplace selected for the new state capital in the su'burbs of ltelena, he will appreciate this still more. The governor is not one who even no1w re gards the capital building to be ideally located. Cupid's Bow.

'Versatility is one of Jerry 81mpson's strong points and he has demonstrated this fact by winning the ping-pong championship of Montana," said H. F. Ruger of the Burlington today. "It shows that man can play the rose scent ed and aristocratic game of ping-pong without socks better than he can when his feet are encased In silk hose. "The sage of Medicine Hat was in Helena attending the stock growers' convention. Bam Scott, the million.re manager of the Pioneer Cattle com.ny had mastered the new game and he knew that Governor Tooe and 'S w' Johnson of the Northern Pacific rail 'ay were adepts. Then there was Corhrad Kohre, the cattle millionaire, and former Senator Toull I'wers who were onto the Lame. "There was an idea current In ScOtt's brain that the Sockless One had never even heard of ping-pong and so over at the Montana club the game was sug gested. Simpson demonstrated that he was a true sport. He told these men that he would try the game. They did not notice that in his eye was the glim mer of the challenged, also the glitter that the Chink had when it became known that 'for ways that are dark and tricks that are vain the hedthen Chinee Is peculiar.' "Well, the way in which the Kansas Statesman and patriot handiled the game w\\its wonder. e shllifte d around upon his snckless feet in a way that dazed all of the others. He was onto every curve. lie knew every turn. He was familiar with every twist. Hie was wise to ev\ry move. There wasn't a thing abirut ping pong that he didn't know and dlid he win? Well, did he! Why, he made the others look like selling platters in a fheld of stake horses! lie won the cha.nlpion ship for ping-long in Montana. "When I was in lieldna r'ecently I was told that (lovernor Toole aiind t'ott and the otllers ldn't feel so had because they had losi t the game, but that the championship of ping-plong should go to an alien and a stranger trld ita soc'k less one at that was the cause of the ehoe pinching." i4amuel M.

"They are having a lot of fun with your senator in Washington over that automobile affair" said A. D. Briggs who returned from an Eastern trip thit morn ing. "When Senator ('lark started for the capitol Thursday in his auto, he evi dently was a little behind time and th( chauffeur was throwing her wide open when a couple of bicycle policemen saw) the speed aLt which the senatorial chari ot was cllippiing along. "I happened to be near the capilo; as the senator came along, and I assure you it reminded me of the Butte hose-wagon coming down Main Street on the jump. "About three blocks behind, the bicy.. cle policemen were straining every mus tle to catch up and when they arrived the senator had already entered the capitol building. 'The chauffeur was summoned to ap pear in court but the senator expressed his intention to tight.it to the bitter end. "The speed limit in Washington Is 12 miles an hour; the policemen asserted that the auto was going at least 20; while Senator Clark maintained that it was not going faster than ten. "There is one circumstance in favor of the Montana senator. "It has leaked out that the policemenq were both born in Philadelphia and con. scquently are not reliable authorities on speed."

This State Will Erect Building Near Missouri's Home. [CI)loe-Dermnoerat.] 'rThe Montana Worldl's Fair' colmmlission vi.sited the eixposition site yesterday and setlec'ted a loc(tlion for Its state building alInd exhibit on the table-land, where other state bIildings have been located. The commission that made the selection 'consists of A. J. Davidson, chairman; (1ov. J. K. Toole. Thomas C. Kurtz, C. E. Conrad, John S. M. Neill and I. (3. Baker. 'The latter, a St. Louisan, is chairman ,.f the St. Louis auriliary committee for Montana. I Thile visitors called on Charles H. Hut tig, chairman of the states and territorial committee, and stated their purposes anl -expectations. Later a visit was made to I)irector of Works Isaac S. Taylor for the mlllle purpose, and then a ride to the explosition site was taken. The special ear i'Electra was Iprovided for the trip, alld the route chosen was such as to give the party a fa')rable Impression of the city. The Cottage was visited, and later sonre of the shops which have been con structed on tire site. The party was im plressed with the beautiful location and surroundings of tihe ground that has been set aside for state buildings. The selec tion which the commissioners made is close to the Missouri state building. Governor Toole, wiro made his first visit to the site yesterday, said: "I am great ly Impressed with the extent and possi. bilities of the World's Fair grounds. I am sure that Montana can erect a cred Itable building on the site chosen. I am assured b)y Mr. Taylor that the place is easily accessible to street car lines, as well as the prospective intermural rail road, so that visitors may ascend the height without difficulty. That, I think, Is one of the chief considerations-acces slirlity to the public." Secretary Kurtz of the commission was in 1893 a commissioner friom the state of Minnesota to the Ohicago World's Fair. He said yesterday: "St. Louis has al ready eclipsed Chicago in the selection of a site. The hills and the rolling coun. try back of them would lend themselves to the landscape architect, as has beern the case with no other exposition. I arm much impressed with Director Taylor's idea that the state buildings shall not Ire Ilaced in a formal line, but shall be scat tered as in a park, over a certain pacrt of the grounds." The commission will today meet Vice President C. H. Spencer and other offi cials of the exposition compatny, remain ing in the city until Sunday night. South African Gold. [London Engineering.] Not only Is gold mining re:vlnin to some extent In the Transvaal, but the de liveries of Rhodeslan gold are also great ly increasing, so that British South African gold mining enterprise is, upon the whole, decidedly recovering. It ap pears probable that the aggregate re ceipts of gold from that quarter for the whole of 1901 will range between £1,500, 000 and £2,000,000. Totals such as these fall, of course, very considerably below those attained in 1898 and 1899, but they are none the less of some value as re gards the present, while they induce strong hopes for the future, - - - - - - - - - - MONTANA CURRENT NOTES.
