Seattle, Wash., Aug. 18,The four
teenth annual session of the Trans-Mis
sissippi Commercial Congress, which con
vened In this city this morning, started
out under the most favorable auspices.
The attendance Is unusually large, there
being delegates from every state and ter
ritory in the trans-Mississippi region,
from Alaska and the Hawaiian islands.
Large delegations -are present from. Ore
gon, Colorado, Texas : and Xouisinaha: -
The morning session of the congress
to-day vra's s-pSnt-Jn. perfectirfg" the*organ
lzation and in the delivery of addresses
of welcome" arid responses. These Included
welcoming addresses by Governor. Henry
McBride for the state, Mayor Thomas J.
Humes for the city and Judge Thomas
Burke for the commercial organizations
of the northwest. The speech of Presi
dent Kirby, responding in behalf of the
congress, was read by Thomas Richard
son of New Orleans.
Mr. Kirby said, in part:
The Trans-Mississippi Commercial congress
was organized to bring trar.aportatlon facili
ties to the producers of the larger part of
the nation's domestic and export wealth, who
toil hr the cotton and grain fields, in the lum
'ter, the iron, the coal and the oil regiciiB ana
In the silver and lead and copper and gola
mines of the west to command the aid of the
government in fostering ihe agricultural pos
sibilities of vaat areas that with irrigation
will give richer reward to the husbandman's
patient labor than any other upen the earth's
surface to effect the development of har
!bors on the Gulf and Pacific coasts aud to
conserve the tremendous energies of the
Mississippi riVer . These problems are, all im
wrocess of solut'.bn, and the duty of the
government is become, so obvious that no one
need-doubt the perfection of these vast en
terprises. As tardy as the government some
times is in the execution of its obligations
to the citizen, it has not been Xnown to fail
when once it sets its hand to tne discharge
ct a grato public duty. Indeed, that which
is now the mission of the Trans-Mississippi
Commercial congress is as broad, as deep and
as eternal as the' republic Itself.
Already the rapid commercial growth of the
United States has aroused a jealousy and
apprehension on the part of European powers
which not all their infinite diplomacy can
conceal. Thiols gratifying to American pride,
tut it likewise is a challenge to American
genius. Whatever diplomatists may tell you
we stand alone without an ally in this Titanic
struggle for supremacy among the giant na
tions of the world. If we win we will win
upou American initiative and sustained in
dustry. If we fail^-we will fail taru tho de-.
cadence of Americait statesmanship.. That is
not possible. ' i

Time was ^wh*ift the Mississippi A-rlveV
marked the stopping place of the American
republic, nor did it go beyond into the wild
erness of the west until a president of the
jlTnited States, confessedly without the war
rant o the constitution, consummated the
Louisiana purchase. That spirit of adven
ture and demand for elbow room that has
characterized every progressive people since
the Phoenicians looked out upon the sea
and dominated the commerce of the world,
swept Americans on to tbe possesalon of
the Trans-Mississippi regions. It was that
same energy end foresight that bore Ameri
cans on to the embracementof Florida, Texas
and California into the territory and union or
tbe states.
Cfbeying st!H the same spirit acd yielding to
the same great law, the American bas begun

Europe And in this thought I am reminded
,that from this audacious city'of Seattle was

out of an American port for the Orient.

ether things:
It is a matter of congratulation that this
congress has given prominence, to the sub

It remained for this session taglbi* nierited

The question of building permanent nlgh
,ways is of the very highest commercial im
jportance and demands the active attention
of all business men. The practice so long
in use of placing the burden of road-inakina
upon the country people is unjust and in
equitable, and will never secure improved
roads. For more than a century this sys

Havre, Mont, Aug. 18.Ralph Pulitzer,
son of Joseph, Pulitzer of the New-York
World, will be prosecuted by the Montana
authorities for an infraction of the game
law while on his recent hunting trip in
the St. Mary's lake country.
Game Warden Jack Hall has returned
from a ten-days' trip in the. mountains
where he found three carcasses of moun
tain sheep, alleged to have been killed
by Mr. Pulitzer, The heads were missing
and are thought to Jiave been taken home
by Mr, Pulitzer as-trophies of the oha*re.
Mr. Hall will go directly to Helena 'and
apply for-requisition papers for Mr. Pulit
zer tjiat he may be-prosecuted. ..---,-
Mr. - Pulitzer reached Montana six weeks
ago, and in company with Mr. Schoultz,
a well-known tourist guide, spent three
weeks camping in the mountains near St.
Marys lake. Later he went to Benton,
where he built a house boat and floated
down the Missouri, hunting by the way
until he reached Glasgow, when he took
the train with his party for his home in
New- York. . .
Mr. Hall has been working on the case
for two weeks and will go. to Helena with
many affidavits. He took the matter up
with Governor Toole two weeks ago, re
questing that requisition papers be issued
The governor asked that more evidence
b collected before taking action, and this
Mr. Hall has done and will now lay the
evidence before the governor.

From a Staff Correspondent. -
Ottumwa, Aug. 18.The judgment of
leading men of both parties in parliament
is that the,present session will'be con
tinued at least until Sept. 1. Farther than
this opinions differ, some saying that
prorogation cannot come until the "middle
of the month, and others that it-ought, ta
come in the first week of the month.
Meanwhile, nobody has .any definite ln
Ixjcmation. There is no limit o*iebajte In"s
either house, arid If spee'ch'es dft^'he3
Trunk Pacific railroad'-Wrtare to continue
.as at present, It may well be the mjddle
of the month instead of the first before
the end comes., ' ~ .
This question of prorogation is very im
portant to those in the United States who
are anxious for a meeting this fall of the
high joint commission. Liberal'leaders
here agree with advocates of reciprocity in
the states, that if the" commission does
not meet this fall, any serious considera
tion of reciprocity must be postponed for
at least two years, owing to the presiden
tial campaign in the .United States next
year. These liberal-leaders have tried- as
best they have been able to arrange par
liamentary matters so as to prorogue that
body as early as Sept. 1 they now
accept the possible fact of sittings until
the middle of the month. The. prolonging
of the session beyond.the customary lim?
isparliament met five months agobas
caused the liberal leaders to join in the
belief that 'the high joint TSOminrtissten: if
reconvened this year, ought to meet in
Washington rather than in Ottawa. This
of itself Is an earnest of.the genuineness
of the desire of the Canadian government
to secure a treaty at an early day. It be
lieves that if the commission shall meet
i Washington, Senator Fairbanks and the
other American members of lt can be
present at its sittings, notwithstanding
the- fact, that congress is to meet in No -
vember. Were Ottawa to be insisted on,
however, nc meetig would be possible this
fall, as Senator Fairbanks and his col
leagues would probably not feel justified
in absenting themselves for an indefinite
period from Washington. -
Liberal members of parliament talk very
freely jpf Their views concerning, reciproc
ity with the United States. They are en
tirely willing that a treaty be made, and
will place no obstacles in its way. Some
sof them, like John Charlton,'are pro-"
nwmced champions of reciprdcity7 "arid*
:the serious probled m is :
How to get-tthem?"
It has been argued with the persuasiveness
of a Paul ihat the national government should
lend its aid to the construction of public
highways. If the government can expeno
vast appropriations for the improvement ofr
rivers end harbors,c its aid to build
railroadsw whichu are but another clu&s of pub
Sir Wilfred Laurier has said to "his-advis
ers that the question will not be consid
ered until parliament is out of the way
Meanwhile, he does not know what w(li
be done, and is ready to discuss the situ
ation without prejudice. While not desir-i
ing to make a prediction, I may yet say
that from the best information attainable
the prospects for a fall election are not
promising. If Sir Wilfred orders it he
will do so against the advice of ' his
strongest and wisest supporters. The lib
eral party has been in power during but
three parliaments. It is always the cus^
torn in this country for a.party to have at
least five parliaments before an election*
For Sir Wilfred to go before the country
now would be for him to lay himself open
to the charge that he is deficient lh couN
age. This is one of. the liberal arguments
against a fall election, aside from the ai
guments connected directly with-the tis
sues that would present themselves ^
The fact that-the conservatives "are a
anxious for an election may itself thro*
the liberals the other way, eveaaaii
that liberal sentiment m'ighi^ wtth th, !
conservative desire out of the way leari
towards an early appeal to the voters. '

And Chicago Employers Will Raise

Chicago, Aug. 18 After receiving a re
port from a corps of experts concerning
the price of commodities in districts where
the organized working men of the city
live, the employers' association has dis
covered that the cost of living has In
creased 16 per cent during the last five
years and has decided that wages should
be increased in like ratio. In many cases
rtho Increase already has been granted
in future cases this will be the basis of
wage raises.
For. more than a decade.the employers
thruout the country have been trying to
find an equitable standard by which wages*
may be adjusted and the Chicago associa
tion intends to tejBt the solution it has.
found. Whether or not the labor or

that the question ./of . an appeal' to the.
country following prorogation, '. while it

that the premier for a time was rather,

and he now holds himself ready to con

for a time he found no difficulty in getting
a grub stake. Grub staking a prospector
is equipping him with food and tools and

Challenged to a Duel He Kills His
New York Sun Special Service.
Chihuahua, Mex., Aug. :8.A sensational
duel was fonght here, yesterday, in which
Joseph Searcy, a traveling man, killed Lieu
tenant Charles J. Estrada, aid to General
Beavo of the Mexican army.
Estrada found Searcy at a bull fight and
invited him to fight a duel. They took a
coach together and, without seconds, drove to
the waste part of 'the country, where they
fought with pistols, three shots being ex
changed. Estrada . was shot thru the head
and . Searcy gave, himself up. There are
conflicting stories of the cause of the tragedy
btrt the common version of it is "that it was
over a Mexican ^beauty to whom both had
been- paying marked attention. -- . -.,. -:/-
When the snows went off the ground
this spring Bowerman shouldered his pack
and turned his face toward Pjtkln and the
Box Canyon district, hitherto unknown to
fame. The town of Pitkin is on the
branch of the Colorado & Southern railway
which runs southwesterly from Denver
to Buena Vista and Baldwin. It is twenty
seven miles east of Gunnison and 175
southwest of Denver. Not far to the
east, across the Sangre de Cristo range, is
the.Cripple Creek district. Leadvllle lies
at an equal distance to the north.. Pit
kin consequently, was' ''M, line," as the
miners say, to develop into a good district
but the big strike which causes a stam
pede to new diggings had yet to be made.
Bowerman made it. He went to it al
most directly. Heading for the Box Can
yon district* he brought up against a reef,
or outwropping of auriferous quartz and
threw down his pack. He had discovered
the mine which he has since named the
Independent. Right at the grass roots he
found quartz in place that was speckled
all over witn gold. He ran his lines, drove
his stakes and took up extensions on the
lead, and as part owners of these exten
sions he named men who had previously
grub staked him. In this way Fire Chief
E. O. Ringer and Stephen Dunn, train dis
patcher of the Denver & Hio Grande rail
way in Pueblo, came to be interested with
The quartz Bowerman grubbed out at
the grass roots was of a richness that
would have driven some men mad with
joy. Bowerman was moved by it, he ad
mits, but he is not demonstrative, and
just what his feelings were can only be
guessed, since he does not care to de
scribe them. But after recording his
claims he loaded himself down with the
finest specimens he could find and started
for home to get hie? wife and children.
Those specimens assayed $35 to the pound
of rock and gave capital enough and credit
enough to Bowerman to move his family

The coy Goddess of Fortune plays queer

and the same good-natured smile and
maintaining. the same familiar footing
with his cronies of the hardluck period.
Bowerman is the man who made the big
strike a few weeks ago in the Box Canyon
district, ,near Pltkiri .
: -
The Bowermans are now living in a tent
in North Hot Springs gulch, near to the
Independent mine. Their beds are of pine
boughs covered with guilts and blankets,
but they virtually are sleeping of nights
on beds of gold, for under the pine boughs
are foundations of rich quartzhundreds
of pounds of finest specimens which
Bowerman and his wife and their children

Fire Chief Ringer went dut to Box Can
yon to inspect his interest in the Bower

him by a friend here he says:

worth of ore stolen from "the dump. The
stakes are mighty thick where the strike
was made, but I think I will be able to
find just as good this side of the strike.
I have something up my sleeve."
There has been a stampede to the new
diggings, of course, and there have been
many smaller strikes since the original
discovery, but none to- compare with that
which the coy goddess had held in reserve
for John' C. Bowerman for a matter of
fifty years.
