Salt LAKP.ClTr, Jan. 18. The Sampson and
Yosemlte No. S mining companies have con
solidated and wlllbu known ns tlie Sampson
Mining Company, The properties are at Ulng
Iiaro.SaltLakecnanty.aii'l for somo yea's tbore
have been conflicting Interests between them.
The mines are old Producers and dividend pay
ers, but with th slump In the price of silver
and lead their operation betauio limited. Now
the work III the mine I, both of which rho-v
good quantities of ore. Is to bo continuous and
extensive. The stockholders of tho Yosemlte
No. -j have Just received Sampson stock to tho
amount of S'.'OO.OOO, whlc.i represents one
halt nf the Sampson rapitnllratlon.
i departure In tho treatment of the cynnldo
product from Its mill hss lieeii begun br the Mer
our Hold Mining Company. Iho shipments
are r.lno shavings, on which Is precipitated the
gold held in solution by the liquid cyanide nt
potassium. They are being sent to the
Jcutsche Oold and Sliver Anstalt of Frankfort-nn-the-Maln.
A consignment valued nt VS.
000 was mado last night. The cyanides aro
worth slightly mora than Xlo a pound. Ex
perts who have been sampling and measuring
up the ore bodies In the Mercur properties un
der tho terms of the recent option are .com
pleting their work, and It Is expected that the
option will bo taken up within the next three
weeks. Iho reports on the Mercur will be
very flattering, as the shonlmr of ore aud the
average values have proven even more grati
fying than was expectod.
All preparations aro making for the resnmp
tlun of work at tho properties of the Tem
ple Ilnr Placer Mining Company on tho Col
orado River, Just bolow tho llrand CaCon.
When the wo.'k Is' again In full swing the
company will employ 100 men. Last summer
the Temple Mar Connnny spent n large sum In
putting a string of current wheels In tlie rlirr
to raise water with which to work thr giants
on the placer deposit!. These wheels did not
prove a decided success, and tho returns from
the placers did not nearly rrpar for thu expen
ditures. Now tho company will flume the wa
ter down from a considerable distance above
Its placers. It will require a still greater ex
penditure than the ;arrent wheels, but the
promoters feel that they havo n urent thing In
the pincers, where tho gold Is coarser than at
any other point on the Colorado, and they are
willing to back their Judgment.wlth capital.
It now seems certain that tho option recently
L'lvcn on 300 shares nf the capital stork of the
Mammoth Mining Company at $4 per share
will never be taken up. The holders ot the
option have not sent their ixterts to examine
the properties, and there Is now hartlly time
tor the work to be accomnllshed without an
extension on the bond. The company Is push
ing the shaft Improvements. The heavy ma
chinery Is Just being pluced In position, and
vltlilu the next twenty dnrs the new plant
should be In operation. This new hoist will
give the comprny a capacity for sinking to the
tr.OUC foot level. At present the shaft ii down
1.UU0 feet, and at that depth the showing of
ore, both gold and silver. Is line.

tapped nta depth of over 400 feet, and the
mine found to be good at that depth.
A new discovery, a gold quartz mine, nn
Henry Crock, live miles northwest of Idaho
Cltv, Is turnlni. out to be a fine property. Upon
muktng tho discovery last fell tho owners
started a tunnel, whlob follows thu vein. It
Is five feet wide, eighteen Inches of which will
mill $40 or $00 per ton. while a streak two
Inches thick will yield from $100 to $300 per
ton. If. O. Thompson has a location on the
same vein that Is turning out good oro. A
flve-stamD mill will be erected as soon as

looked out on n snow-bedecked expanse of trees
and shrubbery yesterday. Occasionally ho
Jotted down a noto upon a pad which lay In his
lap, after which he would gaze out through tho
whirling flashes In dreamy contemplation. In
this pleasing occupation a Su.s reporter quest
ing for information not to be met wlthlti the en
cyclopedia, found him. Mr. I.eary held out a
warning hand as his visitor entered.
"Just a moment," said he. "Don't Interrupt

" Odlug " replied the reportor inquiringly.
"Yes, odlng," said Mr. Leary somewhat im
patiently. "Don't you know what odlng 1st
It's making an ode, and I tell you it Is no minor
stunt to perform. Just sit down and leavo mo
to my odious occupation for three mlnutos,"
At the conclusion of seven minutes and a halt
Mr. Leary arose, stretched himself, put on a be
coming smile and romarked :
"Ibute justoded to 'Beautiful Snow.' Tho

my treatment ot It Is so many sided, touching
upon Its effects on animal life In the Park aud
giving an Inkling In a short, sharp decisive

I feel sure Ills dcstiuod to make a now era In

Mr. Leary paused, but the reporter said
nothing, In tbo hope that It would pass over.
Vain hope.
"I have uotoded to any great length," con
tinued the Secretary of tbo Park Board, "and I
will now read you what I have done. It be
gins "Mr. Leary," Interrupted the reporter kindly
but firmly (It was his only chanoe, and he
seized It quickly), "I have came to interview
you upon the subject, ' Have Fish Memories V "
"This Is not my day for fish," replied Mr.
Leary discontentedly. " This Is my morning fur

"Put It on Ice, Mr. Leary," suggested ths
reportor, "and turn your distinguished con

Inger who proposes to collect evidence from
flsnermen and scientists tending to (Jrove that
Uahes possess the faculty of memory. Can you
throw any light upon this Interesting subject?"
"Can I 1" ejaculated the Secretary of ths
Park Board. "Can I throw any light on the
subject of fishes' memory ? Wny. young man,
compared to tbo Illumination which lean cast
upon that subject an electrlo chandelier would
seem like a black cat at midnight lu a window
less cellar, I suppose that I have bad the most
unfortunate experience In the line of piscatorial
renilultcenco that ever afflicted a living being."
Putting his ode-marked writing pad upon tne
table, Mr. Leary moved his chair up close to ibe
reporter and proceeded to unburden himself uf
this tale of woe:
"Three years ago I went fishing In a certain
small rlvor In Dutchess county, which Is well
stocked with blsok bass, and for several weeks
1 had great luck, catching as many as twenty
five fish In an afternoon's tlsnlug. After a fort
night or so the llsh suddenly stopped biting, and
I supposed that I'd caught them all until an old
farmer gave me a very different explanation.
" ' Mr. I.eary.' be said. them Utiles has cumo
to know yer. an' If yer want ler ketch any moro
)e'll baf lerdltgeczeverself.'
" Those old farmer know a heap nf things
that oven wo scientists aro Ignorant of. so I fol
lowed his tip. Well, sir, 1 put aside my silk hat
for the first time In ears, and disguised as n
tennis plaver In flannels and a cup I enjoyed
great luck for another week. After that 1 made
flno catches as a clergyman anfl as a rustic and
I came back to the city wltht the memory uf the
best sport I'd had in many years.
Mind you, that was three tears ago. Lastsnm
mer two friends of mlue wanted a day's nulling,
so 1 touk 'em up there, never for an Instant sup-
fioilngthslth bass would remombvr mo that
nng: but I underrated my reputation. At first
we did gll a few little chaps that bad probably
never heard of me or Izaak Walton, or M.
Peler, or any of us; then we couldn't get us
inuch as a bite. Naturally my friends began to
guy ms about my great fishing spot; said they
didn't believe there was a bass In the stream
that would weigh half a pound; hut I showed
'em their mistake there, fur down almost under
us. plainly visible through thu clear water,
was an old whoppsr, Ave pounds at least, look
ing lip at US. Well, sir. a I looked at blm It
suddenly struck me that he was the one who
had remembered mo, and Hint he was on guard
and had warned the other fishes. How did bo
ilult? That was tho question. You are doubt
less aware that fishes tunnnt tall;.
The reporter said ti.at he had always under
stood as much.
"Just so I" continued Mr. Leary: "and asthis
bass couldn't talk be did tho next best thing: he
signalled. As sure as you live, ho was glviug a
series of wlg.vvag sUnals with hlstail. First he
pointed It up toward mu. That meant;
' Look outl There's Billy I.eary.'
'"Then he waggled It violently from side to
side, which In his code meant :
"'Danger! del out ot range.'
After that he continued to point at tne, de
noting my exact puslllun, with an occasional
turn over to where our baited honks hung, tu
flip them derisively with his tall. It was most
exasperating. Now here Is the incontrovertible
proof that It was 1 that the old Pass rccog.
nlzed, for as soun as 1 got nut of the boat my
two friends began having bites, aud when tho
da's fishing was over they had nearly forty
pounds of fish In the boat."
".Most extraordinary!" ejaculated the re
porter. "You print thnt In The Su.n and It will give
Prof. Wbal's-lils-nsme something to paste In
his hat," said Mr. I.eary. "And while we ure
on tho subject uf Utiles' memory let me tell you
a story of piscatorial Intelligence that will
astonish yuu. It Is about tho humble but In
genious sucker. In our Ignorance we aru accus
tomed to lulling a person nf easy gullibility a

If anybody should be tempted to call any ot
the principals In tbls little tale br a derogatory
name, it may bo stated nn the authority of the

contempt or reproach; rather "low," like th
object It Is designed to describe.

gaged a person calling hlmsell Baron Otto von
Poyssl I.nltllng to write a piece for It telling

havo tried to marry him (Just because he Is a
Baron) In tho last two weeks while he has been
putting up at tho Waldorf, and how olubmen
have offered to sell him. chonp. Introductions to
thocrenm of society. The "Baron," who says
he's a "Journalist" when ho's at home lu Vienna,
and whose arrival here had been heralded by
the Suuday paper in question with the an
nouncement that he was looking for an heiress,
wrote his piece, and on Saturday It was In type

with the "Baron," learned what he was up to
In tlio wnyof writing an "exposure." and de
cldcd to do something about It.
What ho did about It, according to himself,
was to tell tue exposure editor that he had ex
clusive Information tu the effect that the Baron
was not a baron, w hlcli carries tho Implication,
ot course, that the veracity of a man who, be
Ing no baron, calls himself baron, IsnotsUl
wart enough to stand alone. Charter men.
tloned that the rival howlr-murlber Sunday
paper had offered him $00 for his exclusive In
formation. Here also may pusslbly bedeteetsd
an lmpllcatlon-to wit: That an exposure of the
Baron by tho rival sheer simultaneously with
the Baron's exposure of " Society " might be In
felicitous. The version of the exposure editor is that this
was an attempt at blackmail. A policeman was
sent for and introduced as the proprietor of the
paper and a plan was carried out to make It
pretty sure that the rival sheet wouldn't get
that exposure of tho Barun.
Au agreement was slgued wherein Charter.
In consideration ot $00 to him in hand paid,
agreed to make known ths Information In his
possession, and promised not to make It known
to Ibe rival sheet under penalty of refunding
the money. After the agreement was signed
the policeman touk Chartrrdown tothtcasnler's
omen, saw the tlio paid to him, aud theu arrested
him and locked him up fur the night.
This downed the opposition sheet for the time
being, and didn't cost n ceut. The prisoner was
arraigned In the Centre btrset Police Court
yesterday morning. There tho exposure editor
declared that Charter had professed to have
certain Information about him as well as about
tho Ilaron which would Iso detrimental to the
tdlturlf tho proprietor of the paper learned lu
The Magistrate decided that this did not const!
tutu blackmail and asked Charter for his version
of thu story.
1 he prlsonsr said that ho went to the office to
sail some Information wblc h he bad acquired In
relation to tho "Ilaron." 116 denied that he had
been to any other paper, but said that be had
beeu approached by another paper. He declared
that he bad a good reputation in this country as
well as abroad, and that, while he did not care
to divulge Ibe Information which he wanted to
sell. It was true and ho Lould prove It If neces
sary. Magistrate Slmms then asked tht exposure
editor lr he knew what the information was
which Charter wauled to sell and If It was
true. Tho editor said that he knew what It
was. aud that It was not trne. On this the
magistrate decided to hold Charter In $1,000
bail for obtaining money on pretences alleged
to havo been false. Charter was unable to
furnish ball, and was locked up In the Tombs,
llo said to a reporter:
"My only ubjrct In going to ths office of the
paper iv sh to protect my friend, the Baron, by
keeping his story nut of print. I was offered
$00 fur Ibe story by another paper and I wanted
tu stop tho publication of it. 1 would not have
gone to the paper had 1 not beau urged to by
friends one of whom told me I might get $'.'00

made me sign an agreement and pressed ms to

Wiiur. 1'lAi.NS, N. Y., Jan. S4. -Sheriff John
sou and a potto of officers are bunting fur
George W. Palmer, a cousin of Arthur Palmer
of Mamaronsck, who last Monday shot and
killed his brother and mother and dangerously
wounded his sister. Yesterday Supervisor Bax
ter of Maniurnncck, Lemuel Tompkins of
Larchmont. and Lawyer David Hunt of
Wllllainsbrldge, appeared hefuro County Judge
Lent and applied for a warrant for the arrest ot
Georgo Palmer, who has threatened to kilt all
three. Thu warrant was placed In tho hands of
Mierill Johnson last night. George Palmer,
who has Just been released from an Insane
asylum, turned up in Mamaroneck the day
after Arthur's triple crime. He boasted. (lis
said, thut ho wuuld not kill three persons, but a
dozen.
Last summer Palmer was arrested and In
dicted for attempting to kill Lemuel Tompkins,
who keeps a hotel at Larchmont. Palmer was
at tho hotel one evening under the Influence of
liquor, and ho and Tompkins had sumo words,
when Palmer drew a revolver and fired two
shuts at Tompkins at short range. The first
bullet struck tho centro of a gold watch case
which he carried lu his waistcoat pocket and
lodged in tho works. The second bullet plorced
a thick memorandum book lu his pocket,
but did not go through it. Before hs
could II ro another shot Tompkins, who
held in tils hand a rlflo cans, raised
it and fired at Palmer. The ball struck
Palmer In tho arm. Pulmer then left the
hotel, and the next morning Tompkins had
him urreaied. He was Indicted br the Grand
Jury. Palmer w nt roleasid on bull, and he tu
turn had Tompkins Indicted for attempttur to
kill him. Tompkins's case was tried last Sep
tember, and he was acquitted before Judge
J. slit anda Jury at tho trial. Lawyer Hunt,
will defended I oinpklns, denounced Palmer sa
another Gulteau, and said he was a dangerous
man to be at large. Palmer became frenzied
with anger, and bad to be restrained lu the
courtroom. Judge Lent, lu his oLarge to lbs
Jury, denounced the action ot the Grand Jury
In finding in Indictment against Tompkins.
Before Palmer s case was called his father
went to District Attorney Geoige C. Andrews
and said hh son was no doubt Insane, and do
flared that If the case was not pushed against
George he would havo blm committed to an
Insane asvlum. which he did. Thecaso was ad
journed but not dismissed. Palmer, when ho
ws luken awuy, swnru he would gstevon with
those who prosecuted him. On Thursday,
wnllo )nw,er Hunt was on his way to White
Pliilnt.hr was surprised when he saw Palmer In
the waiting room. Palmer approached htm and
tuld:
"You think I have forgotten what you said
about mo nt tho trial and when yuu bad me
committed. I will do vein up the first chance I
get. and no watch will save your life either."
The truln at that moment arrived and Hunt
hurried u board, llo notified tho people at
Mamaroneck und Tompkins of Palmer's being
at lurge and udvisvd them tu look out thai
another murdir was nut committed, Those
whom Pulmer had threatened In kill made up
their mind tn huviililiii placed In safe keening,
and It wus for this leason that Judge Lent
(lied the warrant. Pulmer Is about 30 years
old und ntlile.lc. hherlff Johnson fears that bo
will make nuiible when he Is arrested, and has
dltccied his deputies to tako no chauc.es.

Imperial house has raised a storm about the
Government's head that threatens the downfall
of the Matsukata Ministry. Already the Ylce
Mlnlster of Homo Affairs has resigned because
of It, and all kinds of rumors are prevalent of
secret movements on foot to relegate Count
Matsukata to the Ministership of Finance and
to appoint Marquis Yamagata Premier. Count
Okuma, the plain-spoken Minister of Foreltu
Affairs, who told his countrymen some homely
troths about themselves at the recent meeting
of tha Oriental Society, was to be driven from
his post that It, too, might be given to Yama
gata. That the Government realizes the Importance
of the public outcry against Its attack upon the
liberty of the press is shown by Its presentment
attheopehlug of tlie Diet on Dec. '.'S of a new
set of newspaper regulations. These will glvo
little relief, however, tho only difference being
that under them the suppression of newspapers
must be effected by sentence nf n court, and
only temporarily by the urblirary order of execu
Uve officials.
The new regulations provide for tho suspen
sion upon conviction of newspapers w hlch pub

the Government's concession to the demand fur
reform has not brsn great, and the illsuppolut

mile back over the speedway to l&Mb street. A
good part of that Journey was as lumpy and as
perilous as climbing up the hill at Ibe bridge.
Wonder was expressed by everybody who saw
the three hnge pieces at the rock that tell that
mora damage was not done. Tbe engineer who
was on duty In the little shanty near hy said
that tbe reason was that the rocks had not
turned as they came down. If they had they
would have smashed right tbrongh tbe bulkhead
and Into tho Harlem, carrying away the wharf
near by.
So far as could be seen yesterday there had
been no further movement of the rook In the
sagging wall safe before any blattins waidnnt
