Four great mine In four ' J camps of th Stato ore nt this time attracting . Its ' much attention. These are tha Gregory-Bobtail i' ftM -, t Central City, the Tom-Boy at Telluride, the K tn V Yankee Qlrl at Bed Mountain, and IheCommo- fc Ik a doro at Credo. The Gregory-Bobtail, the oldest E (iE 1 '&rR0 B0d nilne ln th, s,Atc' nu sgsln revealed f ilK ' Tronder'ull)r rlch chute. This Is the mora p Interesting from Ihe fact that during Its thirty- L K eight years of production, amounting to a total tf 'at t of 7.000,000. It has never failed to show somo 7 vnluca from work, though In recent Tears f' E f It has been of little profit to the manage- , Br ment. Blnce the revlral of (told mining If. ' 'n lne Btftle' when Central City came once jK more to the front with a large amount of new f. B Machinery and new blood, spasmodic attempts IS K " to restore the Gregory-Bobtail havo been made. I : ijL I-o't Tear a London syndlcato had almost closed It' jM. ' a deal for Its purchase, but that sale fell through. It' iW The Oold Coin Company, which Is a new enter- f' 8L prlso backed by New York capital, mndo quite a mk W . record last year with n group of twenty claims Ife It', In the Central City district, and, spurred on by )f W t this success, the same company decided to specu- ' ffi '" ,ulc ,,"1 lhe oll 0aTory-Bobtall, which for f JF i many years hss been indifferently worked by Iff vT leasers on portions of tho property. A louse and If- tt '' bond, amounting It is said to ".100,000, was signed 1$ If and tho new company started to put tho great M'j, ' ) property In shnpo. For three mouths, aided by It t ' new and conipleto machinery, themlles of under- I Kg - ground burrows were explored nnd put Into shape for senstblo practical operation, and last week In Bv j i i the ninth lovel n body of oro was encountered Hi f which excels anything horetofor'j found In tho HL i i properly. Tho voln is ti-.rnty Inchos wide, a Mj, 1 , black flint thickly streaked with wlro gold. Tho H. j wire gold Is so strong nnd heavy that pieces nro K- found where tho broken quartz hangs together j , i by these gold bands and stringers. Tho Oold H y h, Coin Company will now exploro this now chuto H j" ; fully and a few wooks will show how great this H'f i1 strike really Is. All mining men now know that Hf & J- ihoTom-Iloy at Telluride is ono of the richest !& & J mines over discovered In tho State, and tho Lon- ?J ' donrompany whlchlastyearpurrhasedthcprop Hj -fc- ' erty will get Its original purchase prlco back In H' X "i dlrldcads befaro tho end of tho present yoar. A HI ff v development tunno!, started early last year to Ht - v- explore the property at doptb. last week came HU 4f ' upon tho oro chute nt a depth of 30 feet below H K- the lowest workings In the mine, and tho assay Hj: I tests from the vein there openod showed tho ore HK '( to bo even richer than at any point along tho Hi IK,' 2,000 feet of vein already known. The vein Hj.' "' runs from 9 to 14 feet in width and every par- BJj'l t tlclo of the vein matter Is avallablo for conccn- BJl i tration. The company pays handsome dividends HI' -,- every month. HJ J The Yankee Girl, on Bed Mountain, was pur- HJi i"' chased by Gtdrge Crawford in 1880for $125,000. BJ' J It was then a rich sliver mine, and one carload HJ; J, that year returned $37,000, while a number of HJjv l other car loads paid from 923,000 to 935,000 fc ; each. Over 92,000,000 In dividends was paid HJI t out when tho initio was sold to on English com- HK h puny for 91.500,000. Then followed some years Hf;t it of profit, others of great expense, and when the Hf i ' sill cr slump occurred thomlno was closed down. HJ . ' This wook Mr. Crawford, who has been trying to Hjj i start up the mlno, succeeded In closing a deal Hj' i whereby sonio Eastern capital will be put Into HJ' ;:; the property, and it is to be immediately re- Ht' j opened and developed still further. Enough HK i money will be available to folly equip and op- Hif i' erate tho mine until Its great vein has been HK j , thoroughly explored. HB-" y The Commodore has for months been shipping Hj'j $ . a heavy tonnage of rich sliver ores bearing some BK . v gold, and now that all tears of expensive lltlga- HlK v,. ' tlon have been quieted, by reason of an amicable HJh f aettlement with the Amethyst company over H V -- conflktlng Interests ln tho Sunnyslde claim, HJ - v. through which tho great vein runs, the mine H f', can go ahead and rontlnuo tho great drainage HJ ' ,'f : tunnel, which is to run Ave miles under Bacbe- Hi lor Mountain and reach the vein at great depth, Hj ''v v The recent strike of rich oro In tho MollleGtb- HJ j J- sou nt Aspen has been hedged about with so HJ i f,-; ,' much secrecy that It isdifllcult to know Just B .' -1 ' what to bclievo about it, Tho men employed nt H ' r the mlno aro buying up stock In the company as H ( ( fast as they can raise the money, and none of HIEv them at this timo cares to dispose of his hold- I ', - lngs. Tbey are banking heavily upon tho future .; development of this strike. The market quota- ' f tlons took quite an upward Jump recently, but i lagged back again and remains don n in splto of 'V tho rerorts of the new strike. ' p The water flow in tho Cripple Croek district j':; In tho big mines is now reported to be subsiding, j r For months the big mines had to fight tho floods I i ? that rushed Into the shafts and Immenso pump. Hj ' $ , Ins- plants were Installed. Now these pumps are I J i not working as much as when first Installed. j ) y The various tunnels show a greatly diminishing I -. volume of water. Tho Klktnn Company hold its I ; '' .1 annual meeting Inst week and reelected all the K I old officers. The annual report showed receipts H i ; from ore during the car of 9533.501; dividends H t ' ' paid. 91110,000. The net profits were .101,377, H. . (v and lhe tompan j-hna on hnnd Government bonds Wt it" to the Hmoiint of 9124,310, and there is 9107,- H - V 718 ln the treasury. The annual report shows T a great oro rcservo yet remaining untouched. I -li Forthe past three months Henry lllncknood, j ! j an Afro-American, bna been working on some h i claims on the hills between Soda Creek and Chi- n Ki cago Creek, in the Idaho hpiings district. This Tat . ft, week he opened up a four-foot vein near the If aurface which shows streaks of free gold of sur- V ' prising richness. Upon the strengih of this dls- i . covery he has had an offer of 90,000 cash for a t- , one-half interest in his holdings, which he IX) promptly refused. XV ' The cold and backward spring and heavy ?v snow fall have rotjirded opening operations In , tho timber lino ciimns fully Mx weekB. and but V ltttlo can be done before July 1, Iteports of an- h other labor strike impending In Ieadvlllo con- '', tlnue und operations thoro on new enterprises J' ( are accordingly delayed. r XT 18IIIMIT0N', v Hkattlk, Juno 12. In Mt.ltuleiis district, Bkn- mania county, much development work is helng s dono by lioine and foreign roiupanius, and at "' present Iheru arc 500 men euguged in prospect- t Ing nnd developing. i' Tho St. Helens Gold Company, a corimratlon V composed mainly of Milwaukee capitalists, is J- opening up thirty claims. Tho oro averages f - from 16 tq i!0 per cent, copper nnd low values in i silver and gold. It is said to be the intention of tho company to establish reduction works of ' Its own on a largo scale, and ns thoro Is an i abundance of coking coal, tills can bo done to f :( advantage. : Tho Cascade Mining Coniany. composed of B ' i Portland cnpitallsls. Is operating ln the same district, nnd has llvo clalniH under devolop- m " ment. with nearly throe feet of solid ore that B I f, assas 90 in gold, copper, and silver. B T The T'ruusvaal group, owned by citizens of B. Washington, glvo higher ass.iya than any In the ' district, and nrn In a fair stato of development. B it In Miller Itlver iho Coney, ownod by Haiti i ,; ) moro und tiouttlo men. Is being worked by power BB,. f drills In n systcmatlo manner, and will soon BBJI rank among the leading shippers of the Cos- BHt ; cades. 'j i On the Belle a largo amount of work has been B,l I'. , dono on n nlxtecn-foot ledgo that assars 942. BB f- ; On this property there is a tunnel In 140 feet BBi h , and n shaft sunk on tho oro 100 feet. There are BB . 000 men In the district, mining and prospecting, BB' , , where there wero only 100 last seasun at this BB, ,, time. BBW Ou Becker lllvor the Washington-Anaconda BIj ' ' people are driving ahead on the main tunnel, BB'I and are cross-cutting to strike the big ledgo BB' - within tho next twenty feet. This property BB, ,. gives promlsos of becoming ono of the largest in BB-' the State. BB: In Cll-Klum district three stamp mills are con- BB itructlng. nearly all of which will be dropping BB -. stamps about July 1. On the Brown Bear group BB , ! the aaventy-flve-foot ledge is being opened up by BB tunnel and tho ore is Improving. The surface BB' t -. . assays were 92.50 gold, and at depths have In- BB.' ' created to 910, maklna- It a paying proposition. BB ! On Big Creek a new discovery gives returns of ;j fl7 free gold. BK s v The shipments from the Pride and Mystery BK ' ! t mines In Monto Crlsto district aro Increasing, BB i ,' ami this week they wore In excess of 1,200 tons. BB-' 'it- The Forty-Five Mines Company has placed BB, t' thirty pack horses on its trull and has begun BB' v ' carrying its high grade ore from tho mine to B I the Monto Crlsto Railroad. BB' t ' The Deer Creek Company has struck a rich BB 1 body of ore at a depth of 100 feet. It Is about BB i if three feet wide and assays from 923 to 935 per BY ( ik ton. H W In Hwauk district tho Utla Company has six r9B( f- , men running a tunnel that will tap the ledgo at ;1H3 '( a depth of 400 feot below tho outcrop. Tho HH IK M- ledge is 0 feet wide, and the oro assays from 910 BB ! F to 9t)0 In gold. From ten to twenty new loon- B Vir, 'A tlons are mndo dally In the district, and groat ,BBV., activity prevails in both placer and quarts IH'Im mines. BWHt ALASKA. IHJ Hrafa, BCATTIX, June 12. Tlio Alaska-Mexican Com- KB JBft'Va x pany. operating on the Treadwell lode, produced tHHsam V during the past year 9245,802 In gold bullion, IflnVfZaKL Yi at an exMbnse of 9184.219, giving a net proQl of BBBKTOuY Y. i,C50Jl This was taken from 101.702 tons of Wfl JBM TkV pw .russrvta now In light art estt- mated at 007,200 tons, or enough to keep the present mill running constantly for Dye years. About 1,200 men are camped on the borders of Lake Bennett constructing boats to carry them down the lake on their war to the Yukon mines. The iro la disappearing and navigation la measurably safe. Over 100 boats have U-en built, and others are under construction. Tho goldaeekers are all reported In excellent health and spirits. The Comet mill at Berner'a Bay la dropping thirty stamps on high grade ore. nnd will soon have ton moro In operation. The Portland Alaska Company, ln the same district, will have its works completed In July. At Seal Bay a quartr. ledge 00 feet wide Is bring opened up, assays from the ore showing 945 gold and 0 per rent, copper. A shaft has been sunk UO feel, nnd the oro Is found continu ous. On Cat and Mary Islands, which have been neglected by prospectors up to the present, some valuable discoveries are being mode, giving gold asaa)aaBhlgbas930and as low at 918. On Oravlna Island a four-foot ledge has been discovered from which assays hair been ob tained going ns high an 9330 gold. But little prospecting lias been done hore, but tlio charac ter of tho ore Is stimulating work. Near Hltka, hitherto noglccted ns a mining section, a number of promising discoveries have been mndo this spring nnd tho old locations are showing up much bottor, At Bostwlck Island llfty men are prospecting and some good claims have tetn taken up. Yesterday the steamor Portland sailed from Bent tie for Ht. Michaels with thirty-seven ship carpenters engaged to build n 400-ton steamer to plv on tho Yukon. Tho boat is framed and put togethcrund will be ready to launch in forty dars. At Knrluk on April 28 an earthqmke lasting nearly an hour was experienced, nnd ten days later a new volcano made Its nppcaranco on tho mainland opposite the island, Karltik Is on the western coast and Is engaged extensively in fish canning, nniTian coi.uiinu. Skattlr, Juno 12. On Texadi Island, Georgian Straits, there nro now lira producing mines and fifty that aro under development, whtlo there are at least 300 recorded claims in vnrlous stages of development, A year ago ono Bteamor made weekly callH nt tho Island. Now lliostonmersare crowded with business. The district 011 the coast next of Importance Is Har rison Lake, which has come rapidly to tho front this spring through numerous discoveries of rich gold-copper oros. The district Is easy of no coss by either tho Canadian Pnelflu or by boats on tho Frnzer Blver. Tho first shipment took placotoday from the Pmrldcnco mlno on tho shores of tho lake. This goes direct from tho mlno tu tho Everett smelter In Washington. Threo hundred men nro now employed In tho district whero thero were not thirty at this time last year. At Alnsworth camp the Black Diamond gronp took position this wock among tho shlppcm, sending out 5 oars and 1,700 sacks. Tho mountains near Nelson are swarming with prospoctors, and since May 1 over 400 loca tions have been made. The discoveries ere mostly silver-lead, and the oro Is abovo tho average In tho district. The Cariboo Hydraulic Company began piping on April 13 and anticipate a steady run till No vember, when the general clean-up will take place. They are giving employment to 100 men. Tho Ottawa Hydraulic Company at North Bend, on Frascr Itlver. havo made their spring clean-up and have started In on their second run. An idea of tho large amount of machinery and mining supplies going into the Cariboo and Umlruca country may be had from the fact of there being 530 horses and 100 men engaged ln freighting on the Cariboo wagon road. CALIFORNIA. Los Anoki.ks, June 12. Tho new State min ing law, which went into effect last month. Is arousing opposition among tbemlners. It makes a mining clalui Jumpable in sixty days, Instead of twelve months, as the Federal law provides, through failure to do the necessary amount of assessment work. It raises the question whether the State CAn declare forfeit in contradiction of the Federal statutes, and thero ore many w ho declare the new law unconstitutional. United States District Judge Boss has ren dered a decision upholding the constitutionality of the Camlncttl act of 1803, and enjoining the North BloomQeld Gravel Company from opera ting Us mine on Humbug Creek until It shall have complied with tho provisions of tho law. This casohas been rogarded by mining men as a test case in regard to tho Camincttl act. The company had denied the right of Congress to place such restrictions upon the hydraulic min ing industry as thbso lmposod by this act. Los Angeles has a newly organized Mining and Stock Exchange, which will operate ln southern California mining stocks. The Ghost Mlno nt Angel's Camp. Calaveras county, owned by Drake and Tryon, hns been sold for 9333,000 to L. It Vandcrmeulen and Leopold Meyer of London. Work will soon be resumed on the Charter Oak Mine in Washing ton Flat district. C. L. Meyer of New York and It. C. Mueler of Franco have secured a bond on 800 ncros near Angol's, which they will thor oughly prospect. The Frlcot group of mines on Ban Antono ridge are to bo developed by means of n tunnel halt a mile long which w 111 be driven from O'Ncll's Creek to tap tho entire group. A strike han been mado in tbe Never Sweat mine, near Diamond Springs, El Dorado county. Tho Marquart & Hancock gravel mine has over a thousand car loads of gravel on tbe pay dump. In the Itandaburu district new strikes havo been made In tho edgo mlno and ln Vul Verde shart No. 2. The latter hns been yielding low grade rock worth 98 per ton. but has struck oro worth 9300 per lon. Tho Wedgo mine opened up a 4s-foot body of ore, which is tho counter- Sart ot the rich strike made recently ln the lonynnmlne. Ills on tho 315-foot level, and much ot it is worth 91 an ounce The Wedgo mlno Is down 350 feet, and tbo oro has grown richer with depth. No sloping has been dono. and drifts have been run at only two levels, but tbe mine has produced about 985,000. It has paid for its on 11 development, and for somo time has been paying regular dividends ot 2 per cent, n month. It Is the Intention or the management, as soon as they reach n depth of 413 loot, to es tablish levels at every 60 feet and block out tho mine ready foratoplng. Lucky Baldwin recently vlsltod Bandsburg and bought the George Cook mine, adjoining the Val Verde. A large number ot transfers of undeveloped claims has recently been made ln the Hand district. Thailand Mountain Mining Company bos been organized to develop a group of mines lying between the Hand group and the Wedge. A good Btrlke has been made in tho old Hlrsch man gravel mlno near Nevada City, which hns Ix-cn closed down for some time on nccount of tbe law ngalnst hidraullc mining. Tho rich gravel was found at tbe ond of a long tunnel which has been driven into the bill. Prospecting for oil and gas Is to go on near Itedwood City. San Mateo county. The Pacific Oil Company has leased 1,700 acres of oil lands and will begin development work soon. A ledge showing rich ore has been found in a canon near San Bernardino which has boon used as n picnic ground for twenty-live years. The oro aesajs 9221 In gold, 920 ln silver, and con siderable in copper. Messrs. Kahny, Tillman & Holden have sold tho Black Diamond copper mine, fourteen miles from Bedding, Shasta county, for 9115,000, to New York men. It Is on the saiuo lead as tlio Iron Mountain property. The assays run from 7 to 20 per cent. Threo largo smcitors nro ln operation, and tlvo moro are in course of con struction. It is considered that this mlno dem onstrates tbe permanency of the copper deposits ln that section. Tho Stowell group of mines, on Flat Creek, has boen sold for 9176,000. A rich strike has been mndo in tho Bully Hill tunnel at Copper City. Tho tunnel has been all thotlmo In good copper ore. but at the distance of 1,400 feet a chimney of rich decomposed gold oro has been struck, running several hundred dollars per ton. A stilkobas been made In the Gladstone mine of a four-foot ledgo, from which a mill run of thirty tons produced9(ltt0 ln bullion. A tlvo-foot ledge, carrying a thirty-Inch pay streak, has been opened up on the American mine, m Duadnuod district, Siskiyou county. NEVADA. YinnmtA Crrr, June 12. The Oold Park mine, near Austin, has an abundance of ore Insight. That which Is now being extracted Is from a twenty-Inch ledge, and mills high in gold. A gold ledgo hns been discovered near Elko, and many claims have been located. Knight Brothers have bought for 924,000 a two-thirds interest ln the Creole mines, in the new State Lino district, on tho bordor bctvvoen Utah and Nevada. Ollngbouso tafton, near Wadsworth, Is at tracting attention on account ot 11 rich gold find. iDAno, Idaho Citt, June 13. K. P. Plowman has contracted to cut 300,000 fret of lumber for tbe Illinois and Gambrinus mines, situated six miles north or this place. Tbe lumber Is to bo used In buildings and for the two shafts that will be put down to depths of 300 feet, Ashby Turner and Gov. Steuuenberg aro ne gotiating for all the placer claims on Gold Hill at this place. The tract Is about a mile In length and u half a mile In width. At Florence Magnus Simpson and B. J, Mo Council have taken a contract to run 100 feet of tunnel on the Gold Bug, and the owners of the Koystone are actively pushing work in tbelr tunnel. A heavy flow of water indicates that they are Hearing tho vein. Tbe Toledo people have uncovered the mine to tbe foot ot tbe hill, a distance of 300 feet. They will start a tunnel to developo tbe mine and open up stoplng ground. The Pet ledge has been tapped and a vein of six Inches ln width of very rich ore dis covered. A valuable discovery has boon mado a mile east of the Florence sawmill. At the sur face the vein was only an inch in width, but at a depth ot ten feet It is llvo inches wide and ex ceedingly rich. The outlook for this camp was nev er so nrlght as at present. BobMrNeeley has struck good oro ln his Cat Creek mine, on Llttlo Camas prairie. Last year he discovered good ore on tbe surface, and dur ing the winter ran a tunnel which cut it at a depth of 100 feet. UTAH. Salt Lake Citt, June 14. On a basis of 9250,000 for the property, Capt. Joseph It, De Lumar of New York city has scoured a ninety days option on about a one-half interest In the Brickyard group at Mercur. DeLamar owned a little over one-half of the properties, which ad- ioln his Golden Gate, tho Geyser-Marlon, and lold Dust, and doslrcd tbo wholo group. A compromise has been effected between the Dexter Mining Company and its President, J. W.Unnell, who was aouusodof stealing about 925,000 In bullion and amalgam from the com pany, Mr. Llisjicll will not be placed Jo charge of the works, however. On Saturday, thg Ontario Company shipped .,, i.'.r.'..' uj-4L4;j'Ail:. r;,-,.'.; from Its works at Park City forty-four bars of sliver bullion, being about 00.000 ounces. Below tho 1.600 level In theCentennlal-Eu-relta. at Eureka, a rich strike has just been made, a body of high-grade sllver-gold-copper oro having been oponed by a winze. The com pany is shipping lightly on account of the loir price of silver and lead. The Initial shipment of gold bullion from tho Queen of Bheba mill. In the Deep Creek country, has Just been received here. It showed the av erage value of the ore treated to be 915 per ton The Sf ercur Company has declared Its Jtina dividend of 923,000, making the company s to tal 9725,000. On the 20th tho South Swansea will pay 95.000, and on tho 30th, the Oeysor Marlon will pay at least fO.000. with prospects of 916,000. The Silver King paid 93 1. 600 on An additional Increase of fifty tons Is being mado In tho daily capacity of the Mercur mlU, making the tonnage 350 tons. The construction of a custom stamp mill nt Lino City. Btnto Line district, is to begin nt once. This improvement will do much toward the future development of tho district, which has some Immense gold and silver showings, ARIZONA. Tucsov, Ariz., June 12. Tho San Xavler mines, thirteon miles south of this city, have been sold for 9110.000, tbe purchasers being New York and London capitalists. Gen. Man ning will be manager. Pumping machin ery will be placed in the mine nt once. It is tho intention of tbe company to begin ths shipment of high-grade ore as soon as the inlnos ore ln condition, which will be In about sis weeks. Tho low grade oro will bo left on tho dump to bo roduced later. Yesterday C. C. Montgomery arrived from tho new gold flnda twenty miles west of Estrella. While hunting ln thoso mountains Mr. Montgomery and his companion killed a deer, and after carrying it some distance, broke off n plcro of tho rook on which they sat down to rest and w oro surprised to boo a small pockot of pure sheet gold, which they rolled up with a pocket knife and brought to town. Not being miners, they know nothing of the native gold, and they did not know what their strike was until they exhibited their find to a Jeweller. They Immediately returned to tho strike and located a mlno, and taking with them an experienced miner, they havo pros pected the country and mado several locations. Mr, Montgomery exhibited a large piece of the rock from which he had taken a portion which assayed 92.000 to the ton. The Baxter group of copper mines, ln the Olive district, has been sold. Tho buyers are ex pected from California this woek. Theso mines havo been a payinr proposition from tho grass roots down. The ore body is large and uniform, running about 20 per cent, copper, 10 ounces silver, and 3 ounces gold. SIXKJSJIS PUOTOOltAPUS LBXA. And.

In anticipation of Ihe heated term thero arise ach year tn this city ahost of summer charities holding out their caps with more or less specious pica for tha contributions ot tho philanthropic Before the first whiff of heat comes they are plucking at tho pockets ot tho "upper classes" for the benefit of the "lower classes." Many of these charities are worthy ln purpose, honest in administration, and highly effective In tho reltof ot suffering. Others are schemes for tho profit and agRrandlrcment of tho Initltutors, and a few aro not only dishonest, but ridiculous as well. No branch of so-called philanthropy has been more heralded abroad than tho fund for provid ing tho suffering masses with Ice. Conceived in the same spirit which animated tho Iter. Mr. Stlgglns ot Pickwick tamo to mako up his collec tions for providing the Infant negroes In thoWest Indies with flannel waistcoats and moral pocket handkerchiefs. It has been managed on similar lines and with equally benoflcent effect. While organized and responsible charities aro busy distributing milk or furnishing medical attend ance to those needing It, or sending tho children of the tenements and tbo gutters to tho country side, the so-called "Ice Fund," responsible happily for itself, to no one, proceeds to gathor In tho shekels of tho gulllblo and devoto them to the noble work of furnishing somo two thousand and odd dollars' worth of Ice (without allowance for melting) for 916,0001 There Is nn clement of finance In this charity which cannot but ap peal to tho thoughtful man. Even if 915.000 worth of Ice were distributed among the poor ln return for tho 913,000 donatod by tho public to tbo fund, it la doubtful If even 91,500 worth of actual benoflt. In comparison with what might have been ochloved along other lines, would accrue. The solemn, sober, and sad fact Is that tho "suffering tenement dweller', (which Is tho generlcal pet namo given by tha " fund " to Its benoflciartes) doesn't care particu larly nbout Ice. Neither does his wife nor his children. For himself ho would prefer beer, generally speaking. Ills wife would rather have a new ribbon or a slice of pineapple, and tho youngsters would with great enthusiasm trade off a twenty-pound (hunk of ice for a stick of striped candy, provided they couldn't get two or more sticks for It. This truth may come ln the nature of a shock to the philanthropic citi zen who has been spending his money for the fund and for tho poor 80 per cent, for tho fund, 20 per cent, for tno poor but it Is nevertheless the fact, and any man of Intelligence can satlsfr himself by an afternoon's walk through tho crowded portions of tbo cast sldo that, com pared to other beneficial uses to which tho money might be devoted in that quarter, the expenditure ot it for Ico is not far removed from sheer waste. This must not be taken as Implying that ice Is not ln use on tho east side and in other tene ment districts. On the contrary, it is a staple article of trade In hot weather, regulated by tho law of supply and demand. Tbe hotter the day the greater the demand for this commodity and tho livelier tbo bargaining. On a very hot day the amount of money spent ln tho tenement dis tricts for ice is probably a full tenth of the amount spent for soda water. Nobody who baa ever seen the mother ot a family break up a three-cent lump of ice and apportion the frag ments among her progeny, bidding them eat it quickly before It has time to disappear, and haa heard her vaunt It over her neighbor, whoso extravagance extends no fur ther than unripe watermelon or mucilaginous candy for her offspring, can doubt that a gen eral distribution of Ice throughout tbe slums of tho city would perceptibly ralso the average ot human happiness there. The same la true of Malaga grapes, paste diamonds, and multi-colored chronics. These do not belong more spe cifically In the category of luxuries, as far as the tenements are concerned, than does ice. On a recent very warm day a 8cs" reporter went down into Essex street to gather some in formation. If there is a street In the city where coolnoss of whatsoever kind la at a premium that street Is Essex. Its blgh tenement walls shut ln nnd conserve the heat. Stray breezes wandering up from the river Ioso themselves In tho network of thoroughfares and never get to Essex street. Forced to leave their fetid tene ment rooms for air, tho swarming popu lation awelters on tho stoops and the sldo walks. It is a sun-baked and super-populated inferno. In this street the ped dlcn, or cooling things do a thriving bus iness. They are the samo peddlers who In tho winter sell from their tarts coal and wood. Now thoso carta aro tilled with blocks of Ice wrapped in jute bagging, with a Ailing ln of watermelon and sliced pineapple. Thus the Ice docs doublo duty: It preserves tbe fruit and is Itself it com mDdlty to bo sold at u good profit. On that hot afternoon tbe street rang with tho slogan of tho peddlors: "Ico OI Ico 01 Watermelon, pineapple. Ice O! Around each cart was a llttlo group of bar gaining women, thoso of them who intended purchasing ice carrying tin basins or pans. "How much for this piece I" A slatternly woman pointed to a bit of ice that might have weighed between four and five pounds. "Six cents," t,ald the dealer, looking nt her wltb a calculating eye. "Six cental" walled tho woman, picking up the piece, "for a two-pound piece llko that!" "A good seven pounds," declared tho dealer. "What would that weigh. Mike t" "Better'n six. for sure," replied his partner. "Say, you put that down, will you 1 Ain't It meltin'fast enough without your handlln' itl" " I should get a bigger piece aa that for 3 centa down at the corner." said tho customer. " Look, ho w fast it melts. What should It bo worth now f I give you 4 cents." " Take It along," said tho dealer. "I can't spend time talkln '." "Why should you pay so much for Ice. Mrs. Warhafsky I" asked another woman who had herself been dickering for a two-pound lump, but had purchased 3 centa worth of melon In stead which she bad placed ln her tin basin, "Ain't thero ilce water for nothing around In Houston slreol at tbe fountain I" "My husband has his good Job," declared Mrs. Warhafsky with pride, " and I can pay for my own Ico water. 1 don't havo to drink out of tho fountain." , "What will she do with the ice!" asked tho reporter of one of tho peddlers. -1 Make up a pitcher of Ice water and sit on the front stoop drlnkln' it before tho neighbors. Won't nobody else but her own family get any good out of that Ice." " Don't tbuy use the Ice to preserve food ?" "D'jou think them tenements Is fitted with fancy rofrlgyraterst" asked the man scornfully, "I ain't sold a 20-pound chunk 011 this block this season. They only want It for a show. It's no more good to them tbnn so much dirt. I've seen tho little kldB here cryin' bocause their mothers was makln' 'em oat the ice. Ice water! They don t need It. nn' if they do there's ire water fountains a-plenty around hero, where thoy can drink it till tbelr lnsides is froze. Thcv buy it causa it's the swell thing, see; an' that fat Jew woman that Just bought a chunk '11 feel like she was wenrln' diamonds while It lasts. If some feller camo down here with n big wngon load an' gave it away, bo's It was common, them folks wouldn t hardly take tho trouble to como down the steps after It." That this la true nobody knows better than the police. Last year they conducted an Ico dis tribution. All the deserving poor who wanted ice were directed to npnly at the station houses. In tho first allotment from three to live tons wore sent to each of tho downtown station houses. At first there was a great rush tor tho ice. mostly on the part of those who had never had that commodity in tbelr housea before. Ten and twenty pound lumps wero given out and carried away, and bitter was tho denuncia tion of the police by thoso who discovered that the lumps which they had gone to so much trouble to get soon resolved themselves into val ueless water, despite the best preservative ef forts of the owners. What good was this stuff that visibly shrank while )on held it in your hands, and was painful to hold into tho bargain! They had boen fooled once. That was enough, and thoy didn't come again. IUaulls unpleasant for tbe polios developed. Nobody camo to take away the Ico; therefore It stayed and melted. The temperature of the sta tion bouse was several degrees below the nor mal, and the atmosphere was decidedly clammy. One station had Its loo stored In tho cellar, Tbo cellar was flooded, and theBorgeantgot malaria. Another, where the ice was left on the sidewalk, could be reached only by fording. Half ot ths patrolmen had colds in their noses. Still the unfeeling, "suffering tenement dwellers," not knowing enough to realize how they were pant ing and perishing for Ice, declined to avail them selves of their glorious opportunities, and ths station housea remained In Arctic misery until the shrewd saloon keepers came to the rescue. "Bring us Ice." said they to their customers, " and we?ll give you beer for it. Here was benefit Indeodl Free ice was a glorious institution. Long lines again formed at the station houses bearing pans and pails and basins in which to carry away tho portions. Each man begged for a twenty-pound lump. This be could exchange for a small whiskey or a largo boer. while a ten-pound lump was quoted as a small beer. The distribution of tee went merrily on and the suffering tenement dweller rejoiced exceed ingly, und sometimes fared so well by virtue of well-timed visits to several statlonalnapeven. ing that he rose to a point of .jovlalty when he IWi hom". ."? bet Lis wife and turned his children Into the street. But, at any rat., ho was happy, and to this extent the city's Ice dis tribution rose superior to the "fund," which w.fJfn.(?prcUcf1 "sautali. Besides, tho city distribution was honest.

The first was that of a pretty, dark-haired Irish-American girl, who had her mother summoned to court on a charge of an noying her. The girl married a young Hebrew, contrary to her mother's wishes, and the latter had tried in various ways to got herto leave her husband. "Wo are lawfully mairled. Judge, but my mother won't let us llvo In peace." aaid tho young woman, "Sho follows me about from place to place, and pulls and hauls me, trying to get me away from my husband." " Have you a marrlago certificate I" asked the Magistrate. "Yes, Judge, hero It Is," said the young wo man producing tho certificate. " Now, this j oung w oman seems to be lawfully married," said Magistrate Meade to the mother. "and so long as she is satisfied with her hus band, you hare no cause for complaint." "But she married a Jewl" exclaimed the mother. " That Is no crime, and you must promise not to annoy her In the future, or I shall be required to punish you. I will let you go only on those conditions." "It may not be a crime to you. but it is to me, said the woman, na sho followed her daughter nnd son-in-law out of court. Sho began her annoyances again tn the corridor. The young couple were obliged to tako refuge in tbe court until she went away. The other case waa that of Edward Salart, an Italian, who lives on the second floor of the flat at 50 Lalght street with his wife and two chil dren. Ho was accused by Mrs. Sarah Brown, who lives on the floor overhead, of climbing up tbe rear lire escape and dumping a pan of ashes on the floor of her sitting room. "Nothing of tho kind occurred, your Honor. This woman was out on the tire escape shout ing; 'Dago!' Dago!' at us. and I simply went put and told herto shut up.

This is tho first time Miss Greono has ever been affected this way, nnd her condition cannot bo explained except on tho hypothesis that in her highly nervous condition sho attended one ot the entertain ments of the hypnotists who hare been at the Sterling Opera House during the week, and un intentionally went Into a cataleptic condition.

If you happen to see a fellow tn a blue uniform ln r rout of a Williamsburg dry goods store re member ho's a baby mindor. His duty is to look after tho perambulators and babies left on tho sidewalk by mothers who go Into the store to shop. The baby minder at a store near Broad way and Myrtle avenue was off duty a few days ago and tho numerous babies ln carriages were left alone. Ono of tho carriages started to roll toward the curb. The motormanof an approach ing trolley car saw tho perambulator rolling, so did a man and a woman who were on tho side walk. Over the curb and into the street went tho carriage with the baby ln It yelling. The motorman turned off his current and put on his brakes. The man and woman dashed from ths sidewalk. Into the street after the runaway per ambulator. The man grabbed the baby In his arms. The woman stopped the carriage Just ln time to save It from being struck by the trolley car. Both man and woman ware greatly excited. " Oet out of the way," exclaimed tbe man who had aaved the baby, brushing the woman aside. " You big fool," replied the woman. " You think you're smart in savins the empty carriage," said the man. "If you were In It I wouldn t hara saved It, retorted the woman. "What's the troublo here I" shouted a big poltcvroan, pushing bis way through tho crowd that had gathered. "Thlscouplols fighting over their baby," said a district messenger boy. "It's not mine' chorused tbe man and ths woman, and while they were apologizing to each other for mutually believing tnat the other owned the baby, the mother of the child walked majestically out of the dry goods store and slowly approached the policeman who now had possession of the baby. "Whydidnt you leave the child ln Its car riage!" she said. "It wouldn't hare cried very I long." "Not It ths trolley car had hit It." said the policeman. " Why didn't you take care of Itl" " I," exclaimed the mother. "I take care ot It. andme inside that store! Tbe ideal It's a city a woman can't do her shopping without police interference. The idea!" The crowd laughed, ths policeman slunk away, and the man who had saved the baby continued to apologize to the woman who had saved the perambulator. DOTS AT BOXIXO MATCHES. Cacao or lb Brrnt Attitude or th. Pollco Officials Ialorvea.4. That the boxing contests In this city have been practioally smothered by tho police is In largo part due to a fact which tho sports and proprietors of the clubs have entirely over looked, namely, the great proportion of minors among the spectators. Two very prominent city ofljolala, men whose vlows on this subject would naturally hare great weight with the police, are authority for this. Neither of them Is willing to bo quoted by name while the question of further contests is tn abeyance, but both were very outspoken on this point. " I have looked upon these contests with doubt ever since they were Inaugurated," aaid one of these officials; "but as long as the crowds were made up of sporting men and business men who have reached years of discretion. It seemed to me that ths fights could not be very harmful. But when It comes to filling up the clubs with young boys and setting up before them aa mod els of manliness the professional bruisers, then It is time to call a bait. Protests were made, and they seem to have been of some effect." " My attention was called to this phase of the question," said the other official. 'by a young nephew ot mine. Ills one thought, as far aa the news of tho day went, was to road the prize fighting column, and he remarked onoo, com plalnlmtly, that lota ot ths other boys ln his school went to the fights at a certain olub where cheap prices are the rule. I Investigated that matter and found that over one-half of the spec tators were boys apparently under 19 years old. From that timo I hare believed that fighting should be prohibited In this city." Neither of the ofttclJs would admit that hs had communicated with the Pollco Board on tbo matter, but thoro Is little doubt that the recent severity of tbe police Inspectors In Interpreting ths law was Inspired by higher authorities.

Immediately after ths suicide the dean and chapter of the cathedral, with the view of ascertaining whether stir ste clal service would be necessary, addressed a let ter bo the Bishop of London and asked him ts "exempt and reconcile the said cathedral thuri-h from all canonical impediment and from every profanation contracted and Incurred in conse quence of such act of blood-shedding," If hs should think it proper. Tbe Bishop of London, in response to this ad dress, then conducted whst was described as a "service of reconciliation, or act of reparation to Almighty God. for the dishonor recently done to Ills sanctuary." The following la the form of service adopted by Bishop Temple, now Arch bishop of Canterbury, on that occasion: " In tbs name ot God, amen. Whereas, it has been represeuted onto us. the Bight Hon. and Right Rev. Father ln God. Frederick, by Divine Providence Lord Bishop of London, by a petition under tbe common seal of the dean and chapter of the Cathedral Church of St. Paul ln London, that during the performance of divine servica ln the said Cathedral Church ot St. Paul on faun day, the 26th day of Beplember last, one Edward Easton committed suicide ln the said cathedral church by shooting himself with a revolver, as would appear by lie records of tbs Coroner of ths city of London, before whom an inquest was held on the 1st of October int. as to the cause of death, and a verdict returned of ' suicide whilst temporarily insane.' That the aaid dean and chanter were advised that ths sacred edifice of the said cathedral church had been by snch act ot self-murder and by tbe blood shedding consequent thereupon polluted and defiled, and that it was therefore neorasary that we should exempt and reconcile the said cathe dral church from aJl canonical Impediment and from every profanation contracted and incurred in consequence of snch act of sniclde and blood shedding by a sentenoe of reconciliation, and by an appropriate religious servioe. "And whereas tho said petitioners have hum bly besought us to be pleased to pronounce such sentence of reconciliation and to perform such service within the said cathedral as may be re quired by the ecclesiastical laws or may to us seem meet and suitable; therefore we, the said Frederick, Lord Bishop ot London, do, by virtus) of and ln exercise of our episcopal authority, hereby pronounce, decree, and declare ths said cathedral church to be exempt and reconciled from all canonical impediment and free from every profanation contracted and Incurred by or through the aforesaid acta of suicide and blood shedding forever by this our definitive sentence or final decree, which we givs and promulgate by theso presents." It is contended by some that the suicide of ths woman in Calvary Church does not place that edifice under the ban of pollution, because tbs deed was committed In the vestibule ot ths church and not in the auditorium, while others argue that no such distinction Is recognlied under the law, as the whole building is conse crated and not alone the auditorium and ths chancel. sor jj.Btr BunxED.
