The Minnie Healy controversy is one f the most interesting and sensational a the history of mining litigation. The udge Harney scandal in which thaf ,ii 1st was accused of awarding the Minnie s'ealy mine to F Augustus Heinze as the ^sult of the Judge becoming Infatuated 1th the alleged female agent of Heinze, i the person of Mrs Ada Brackett, is scent history. The alleged carousals of farney, who H a man led man, with the rackett woman were too racy in the lain to admit of publication. Following on the heels of the Harney vandal was the institution of disbarment roceedlngs against A. J. Shores, chief Dunsel for the Amalgamated companj, y Judge Harney, who charged Shores -- nd Charles W. Clark, Senator "W. A. flark's son, with offering him $250,000 for Kgro the Minnie Healy decision. The offer of $250,000 was acknowledged by Shores and Clark, but they maintained that it was not as a bribe to secure the Minnie Healy decision, as it ajready had been awarded to Heinze, but to secure from. Harney a confession that he had been bribed by Heinze in awarding the propertj to him. Charles Clark, in an affida\ it, declared his part in the proceedings was to dis credit Heinze in a political way, as Heinze was trying to unseat his father in the senate and usurp the leadeishlp of the democratic party in Montana. The trial of the disbarment case brought to light the intoxicated condition of Judge Harney at times when the Minnie Healy case was being heard and upon the strength of the testimony as to the rela tions of Harney with Mrs. Brackett, the supieme court considered the jurist's con duct censurable and remanded the Minnie Healy case for retrial.

Assets of the Company, Tangible and Prospective, Are of Enor mous Value. Special to The Journal. Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., Aug. 24.A great deal of misinformation has been disseminated, many misstatements made and erroneous conclusions drawn regard ing the actual conditions surrounding the projects of the Cdnsolidated Lake Su perior company. Pending the establishment of Industries that will utilize all the 67,000 odd horse power that the canal will develop, may be expected a period of waiting. It requires time to establish industries, still a large portion of the great power will be used in a short time. The carbide plant will in itially require 10,000 horse power. Con struction work on its large buildings near the power-house is about finished, and machinery Is being Installed as rapidly as it is received. A large force of men is engaged. The company has arrangements completed for its supply of limestone, which will be obtained near Newberry, and coke, which is also required, will soon be on its way here from the east. By early winter It is expected the industry will be In full swing. Probably the first enterprise that will make use of the power, aside fiom the street railway, will be the paper mill machinery is now practically all m place, and it is expected that in six weeks paper will be turned out. The product will be wrapping paper, a specialty being made of the class technically known as "express " The mill, which has one ma chine, will have a capacity of twenty-five tons daily. It is stated on good authority that the company has" plans well formu lated for the establishment next year of a second mill. This will be for the manu facture of print, or news paper, and will be designed to have a capacity of 150 tons daily. Pulp for the product of both mills will be obtained from the com pany's plant on the Canadian side. A white metal works is another of the enterprises that the company, or persons associated with it, has In contemplation for the American side. On the Other Side. And now, what of the Canadian Soo? In a measure the industries there have been subjected to severe criticism and the same animadversions that the company's work on thiB side has received. A brief outline of what the various plants are doing to-day should be sufficient to con vince those interested that the allegations have been substantially without founda tion. This will show: The wood pulp mill is turning out sev enty-eight tons of dry pulp daily. The sulphite mill is producing thirty eight tons daily, and this will soon be In creased to fifty tons. The ferro-nickel reduction works, which reduces nickel electrolytlcally, has an output of twenty-five tons a day, and this will soon be increased. From these works Is also obtained the sulphuric acid that is used in the manufacture of sul phite pulp. At the alkali works seven tons of chlor ide of lime and tbiee tons of caustic soda are made daily. This output will soon be increased. The saw mill has a dally output of 110,- 000 feet of lumber, and the lath mill In connection is also in operation. The veneer plant is running only a third of its capacity, but is turning out 30,000 square feet each day. The product Is being shipped to the old country, the charcoal plant is making 8,000 bushels a day, 10 tons acetate of lime and 1,600 gal lons of alcohol. The blast furnace and steel rail mill are about ready for operation. A large quan tity of raw material is being receH ed and the Industries will likely be started in a month. The Algoma iron works, a subsidary company, and the car works, are also in operation and making money for the company. Then there are the Helen iron and Grace gold mines, both of which are in operation and paying well, and sight must not be loss of the Algoma Central railway and the freight and passenger steamship lines which are doing a lucrative business. Neither has any mention been made of an electric plant on the Canadian side, which furnishes that municipality with power and light, nor of the street railway system on both sides of the river and the ferry service In connection, of which the company has the monopoly of both, and all of which are big money makers Neither has anything been said of the ex tensive woods operations of the company on the Canadian side. Prospective Assets. The company has concessions from the Canadian government which Include large land grants containing a wealth of min eral and forest resources that are neces sary In Its Industries, and among other things a bonus and preferential duty on steel rails. From the foregoing It is readily per ceivable that the assets of the company, tangible and prospective, are of incal culable value. In his recent estimate of the prospective earnings of the company for the ensuing year, President Shields was extremely conservative in placing them at about a million dollars net. With sharp business management when things are in full awing they should be double that figure. IOWA Begun at Decorah.

New York Sun Special Service. Yotk, Pa, Aug 24Until three years ago, when by an order from Rome, the Conawagl Catholic chapel, In the township of the same name in Adas county, was discontinued as a Jesuit mission, which it had been for years, and made a parish church of the Har risburg diocese, it was little heard of out side the religious world save in connection with its historical associations. Now the ancient chapel, so long an abode of the Jesuit brothers, is reputed to be "haunted" and the ghostly tales being told of it by the country folk are not without foundation. The Rev Father Halftermyer, the priest in charge of the chapel, himself tells of the midnight visitations of an apparation end strange rappings. These spectral visits and the rappings have occurred more or less reg ularly since the abandonment of the chapel by the Jesuits. The frequent change of Its rectors and assistants since then is thus ap parently explained. Father Halftermyer, who has been the rec tor for more than a year, has found it im possible to keep an assistant for any length of time.

Speoial to The Journal. Milwaukee, Wis., Aug. 24.An odd au tomobile accident happened last night, in which the Grand avenue bridge played an important part. This bridge Is one of the bascule variety, which splits in the cen ter and the two halves rise in the air. Theodore Jonas of the Jonas Automo bile company was coming east on Grand avenue in his auto. With him was Q. F. Batty of Philadelphia. They did not heed tho warning ring of the bridge bell or the frantic motion of Officer Falch and ran upon the bridge just as it started to rise. The weight of the automobile kept the west half of the bridge down. The east half rose and the machine ran into it. Jonas was thrown out over the dash board and landed on his face on the other side of the bridge, which was still rising. It had reached Buch an attitude that he slid down the incline like a boy down a cellar door and landed in a heap at the bottom. The automobile and Mr Batty remained on the other side and it took ten men to push It off the bridge so that the other half could be opened to let the steamer thru. The men were arrested. They were both unhurt and convinced Lieutenant Miller that they did not understand the officer when he told them to stop.

MINNESOTA Cf fi IN MINNESOTA lignite Fuel Found in All the Ex plorations Hade Near Pelican Bapids. Duluth Company Which Is Doing the Work Swears Its Hen to Secrecy. Special to The Journal, Fergus Falls, Minn., Aug. 24.Reports from the coal country north of Pelican Rapids are to the effect that several shafts have been sunk: in different places, and_ cbal has been found in every instance, the* veins being about three feet in thickness." The coal is of the lignite variety, but of a^ good y v quality.
