1 Harney- Brackett Scandal.
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
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.

Two men were with him at the time,
but they disappeared shortly afterwards

was killed Shernan told a brakeman that
he was suffering from "Dillon booze," and
his companions stated that he had a bad

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
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

company, and the car works, are also in

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

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.

Jonas Ban His Machine Upon a

Began to Rise.
An Odd Encounter in Which No One

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
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.

lignite Fuel Found in All the Ex
plorations Hade Near Pelican
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^
v quality.
The announcement that coal had been
discovered caused some excitement heie
a year or two ago, but very little has be^n
heard of the matter lately, and it was
generally supposed that the prospecting
had been abandoned until the blowing up
of an engine and the serious scalding of
Engineer Peter Auduholm a few days ago
called attention to the fact that work wa3
still in progress.
There Is a difference of opinion as to
whether It will pay to mine coal of this
thickness at the depth at which it is beiiig
found, but some of the mining experts
hold that it will pay well. The Duluth
company which is pushing the exploration
has recently compelled all of the men who
enter Its employ to take an oath to keep
still about the discoveries
