THE MINING CONGRESS.
Details for the Meeting Next Tues. day Arranged by the Com. mittee Yesterday. Proepeots Very Bright for a Well Attended and Buooeseful Convention. Entries In the Drilling Tournament Ahead of UxpeMtatlons-Mniang Men and the Mineral Exhlblt. The executive committee of the National Mining congress held a very important meeting yesterday afternoon at the Board of Trade roome. Those present were Chairman S. T. Hauser, Secretary B. B.own, and Messrs. 4eo. W. Irvine, Joe. K, Clark, A. J. Davidson, Wm. Muth. Geo. O. Eaton, O. P. Chisholm, W. E. Cox, A. J. teligman, C. p. Greenfeld, R. O. Hickman, John Murray and Geo. E. Boos. Secretary Brown, in his report on the object of his trip east, said that it resulted in a one fare for the round trip from the Missouri river to Helena, but when he appliel to the Western and Central passenger assnooia tions, they pointed to the small business done in connection with the A. O. U. W. convention, and on that ground refused to make a 'ate. The rate established is $40 from Missouiririver iroints to Helena and return, or $610 for the round trip from Chicago, $20 less than the regular fire. Mr. Eelijman, of the committee on ther mineral exhibit, said that Secretary Ram say, of the board of World's fair managers, had aereed to attend to the collection of the exhibit for the congress, thus relieving the committee of all responsibility. Dis cussion brought out the fact that several mining maohinery houses had applied for space in which to make exhibite. It was finally decided to add Messrs. Moth and Boos to the committee on exhibit, with full power to arrange for the exhibit, both of minerals and mnining machinery. It was also decided that there be no music during the sessions of the congress, and it was left to the discretion of the drill com mnittee whether there be music during the drill contests. All the committees were reported Ins being hard at work, with the prospects very bright for a successful meet ing. Before adjournment it was decided that the next mesting of the executive committee will be hold next Monday evening at eight o'clock at the Board of Trade rooms. At this meeting it is urgently requested that all the members of the sub-committees and the members of the committee on reception be in attend ance. As the congress meets Tuesday at noon, there will be details to be attended to, and the full committee must know just what is to be done. After the adjournment of the committee yesterday the mnembers went upto the andi torium in a body. It was decided to have a platform built just in front of the stage for the stone for the drilling contest. The auditorium was not found in the neatest condition, and the chairman of the com mittee of arrangements was requested to see that the janitor attend to his duties. It was also discovered that the contractors who an dertook to put up the seats on the main floor had only half completed their work. As all the chairs will be needed during the session of the congress, the meetings all being pub lic, Chnirman Cox was requested to see that this nmatter also was attended to. All the outside decorations, now in a very dilapidated condition, will be taken down, And only the American flag will float from the staff on the tower. All the inside decorations will remain, save those that re fer to meetings that have been held. T'he out-of-town membersof the committee were loud in their lraises of the auditorium 1 as a place for large gatherings. THE DRILLING TOURNAMENT. Prices of Admission Fixed and Other De tails Arranged. The drilling tournament during the con gress is going to be a great success. Of that there is no question. After the meet ing of the executive committee yesterday, the committee on the tournament met in Secretary Brown's office. A letter was read from Manager Robinson. of the Drum Lunmmon, in which le announced his ina bility to fulfill the dutids imposed on him, owing to the pressure of private business, but he recommended as his substitute Mi. E. L. Whitmore, of the Montana Co.'s staff. Mr. Whitmore was present and he was assigned to the vacancy occasioned by Mr. Robinson's resignation. The commit tee fixed the price of single admission at .0 cents, or coupon tickets, good for three nights, at $1.25. John R. Miller, of the American National bank, was elect ed treasurer of the committee, and given tower to employ doorkeepers, ticket sellers, and to have full charge of the receipts. Messrs. Harrison and Whitmore were named es a sub-committee to arrange all the details for the tournament, with full power in the premises. 'I he committee de cided to withdraw all restrietions as to the number of entries from each county, and extended the time of entering to 10 a. m. Tuesday morning, July 12. This was done because of the unexpectedly large number of entries from several counties. All con testants must be at the Board of Trade rooms next Tuesday at 10 a. m., to draw for positions in the contest and on the rook. After the adjournment of the drill com mitteq Wm. Harrison, Joseph K. Clark and E. L. Whitmore went out to the Baxendale quarries to pick outs stone for the drillers. Mr. Harrison contributes this to the con test. The entries so far made for the drilling tournament are: Colorado-Single hand, David L. Jones. Silver Plume; double hand, Abram and Hinker, Leadville. Idaho-Single hand, Chas.

If all the people who have promised to send specimens to the mineral exhibit for the mining congress keep their word, the display will be one Montanians need not be ashamed of. The time in which to do the work is short, and the committee hav ing the work in charge arges the import ance of prompt action. Secretary Ramsay is in receipt of a letter from the Champion Mining company, of Deer Lodge county,. promising an exhibit; the Montana com pany limited will make a fnlue display, as will the Whitlach-Union. There will be a number of private collections loaned to the exhibit, and if the matter Is only pushed there will be a fine exhibit, both of min. erals and mining machiney.

The St. Paul Globe of Monday last, has a story of a burglary in which a man who claims to have come from Montana is one of the principal characters. The Globe says: Prof. Regan, who has charge of the experimental farm near the state fair grounds, had a desperate encounter with a burglar last night. Between 11 ana 12 o'clock Mr. Regan was aroused from his sleep by the opening of his bedroom door. Junmping from the bed he started to the door, and as he reached there was seized by a man standing just outside the room. A desperate struggle ensued, the burglar strik ing Mr. Regan several times with a chain. Jeff Carson, an employe who occupies a room on the same floor, heard the noise, and, grabbinga large chisel, came to the rescue. The burlar was knocked stiff by a blow on the head, and after being se curely bound with ropes was placed in a wagon and taked to the Prior avenue sta tion, ' he blow struck by Carson was suf ficient to put the thief to sleep until the station was reached. Dr. Dodds was called and sewed up the outs in the fellow's head. He was not in a talkative mood, but said his name was Peter Olson and that he was from Montana. In his I ockets were found several articles of jewelly taken from the house.
