Big Strike of Copper Ore Which Bids

Special to Tho Tribune.
MISSOULA. Mont. May 12. AVord
from Lolo Hot Springs, which
has just reached this city, tells
of a big strike of copper ore
made by Joseph Eberly and his part
ner, prospectors In the employ of for
mer Gov. McConnell of Idaho. The
scene of the rich discovery is in Lock
jaw creek section, the men having been
encamped on Lockjaw stream for some
time. The account of the find as re
lated by the men is a wonderous one.
the mammoth copper lead uncovered
bidding fair to make a second Dutte in
that section. According to the story
of the prospectors, the ore found is of
high grade sulphide character in ap
parently unlimited quantities and of
easy access. From trenches run along
tho surface it is believed thc Lockjaw
country is traversed by a number of
cuprous leads all of which it is thought
carry enough of the red metal to make
Its extraction profitable. Old miners
in western Montana have long predict
ed that In the near future copper de
posits would be found In the Clearwater
country, which would astonish the min
ing world.

Are Preparing to Massacre
Their Old Enemies at
St. Louis.
Democratic National Situation Bo
conies More Uncertain as Time
of Convention Approaches.
Special to Tho Tribune.
WASHINGTON. May 12. Eight
weeks from today thc Demo
cratic national convention will
assemble at SL Louis. No man
knows what the convention will do ex
cept to have a row. That is one of the
features which all Democratic leaders
privately admit. They say there Is no
alternative. There are some things that
cannot be settled except at the end of
a contest that will be troublesome In
almost every degree.
Democrats are getting farther and
farther away from harmony. They are
drawing nearer and nearer to the places
where It was believed a year ago they
had burled their tomahawks for all
time. The Tammany braves, remem
bering several unpleasant scenes when
the organization was between the up
per and the nether mill stones, have
come from their places of concealment
and are waging open warfare on the
Parker outposts.
They sought concessions a few weeks
ago, when the country seemed to be
taking Parker as a "sure thing," and
the Parker managers declined to con
I cede anything. Then the war dance
I began, and from that hour couriers of
Tammany have been in the field.
Opposing: Instructions.
Stales that had not Instructed were
deluged with letters suggesting that un
lnstructed delegations be sent. It was
argued that the situation Is too unset
tled to rest going to St. Louis labeled
that the prudent thing would be to se
lect solid, conservative men, men that
will yield to argument and will follow
advice of the more sober-headed lead
ers. The advice has had much weight Tho
Parker boom showed a perceptible
weakening as soon ns the Tammany
ites begun their work, and now for two
weeks it is conceded that the Judge has
made little. If any. progress. Indiana's
support Is not regarded as of the great
est Importance at this time because of
the many forecasts already had from
that State and which have been taken
Into consideration.
Few States Have Named Delegates.
Eight States arc scheduled to select
delegates during the remainder of this
month. Seventeen will not act until In
June. The situation may be said to
change weekly, fluctuating backward
and forward between the contesting
It is thus far a game between poli
ticians, and their Information Is neces
sarllv limited to the expressed opin
ions of a comparatively few men and
to the newspapers. Until the majority
of the States take definite action no
man can make a safe forecast. And
since so many States have either re
fused to instruct or Intend to withhold
Instructions, it may be said that the
convention is likely to resolve itself In
to a surprise party of monster propor
tions. . ,
The convention will contain six less
than 1000 delegates. At this time it
seems impossible for either of the active
candidates for President to secure two
thlrdR of the votes, or C63. Parker's
friends say he will have -164 on the first
ballot. This is regarded as based on
the sentiment of a month ago. when
Parker's boom was at high-water mark,
and that there is no likelihood of the
claims making good. Gorman claims to
have assurances of 126 that will stand
with him under all reasonable condi
tions. Olney has thirty-six from his
own State, and Missouri's thirty-six
will vote for Senator Cockrell. Dela
ware may give George Gray her six
v otes for a nest egg.
Hearst Will Control Minority.
With becoming modesty Hearst feels
he will have thc other 326 and one hun
dred or so of the ones Parker is at
tfinntinir to steal from him. He has
every assurance that he will control
more than one-third of the delegates,
and therefore dictate tho nomination.
This condition, the Hearst control of
the convention through a minority of
the yotC3; has been a Democratic night
mare ever since the check-book candi
date got into the fight. None of the
great loaders, save thc few that have
championed Hearst from the outstart.
have feared the nomination of the
young man, but they have and do fear
that he will succeed in controlling
enough votes to prevent the reorgan
ized from carrying out their plans.
How to break this fall Is now receiving
more attention than any one thing.
With the convention eteht weeks away,
the best political prognostlcators s:iy
the SU Louis convention will prove one
of tho most Interesting and thc most
Inharmonious since the Civil war.

Poisonous Bugs Provo Too Much for
tho Seamen, Who Floo for
Their Lives.
Sailors on the Italian bark Anlot
Menoth, which arrived In port
here with n cargo of bones, had a
fearful experience, one which almost
turned their hair white, when prepara
tions were made to unload the cargo.
When the sailors went below they
discovered a horde of tarantulas and
centipedes prepared to give battle. As
the crawling enemy advancd to tho
attack, the sailors prepared to repulso
them. They had armed themselves
with long, strong bones and with these
they fought and beat off the tarantulas
and centipeds! It was a. fight against
too heavy odds. Tho foe was too nu
merous As fast as one tarantula would
be killed another would take its place.
In the battle not a few of the seamen
were nipped in thc legs and were saved
from serious bites by the sea boots they
wore. Those sailors who were In the
hold of the bark soon became exhausted
and others of tho . crew took their
places But they could not get rid of
their tenacious foes.
Then the fighting sailors clambered
out of the hold upon deck, leaving tho
tarantulas complete vlctorP. Some of
the tarantulas trlod to follow the re

showed themselves above the hatches

Coolness Saves Many Lives m
Players in New York Theater
Prevent a Panic and Save
Many Lives.
N. EW YORK, May 12. Coolness of j
the management, efficiency of the I
lire drill and the prompt arrival
of the police prevented a terrible
fire panic in Proctor's theater, 12oth
street near Lexington avenue. With
160D men. women and children packed
in the house, and with fire raging in
the building above them, thc only ole- 1
mcnt lacking to produce a death-dealing
stampede from the auditorium and
the two balconies was the cry from
loosc-tongued man or woman.
That cry did not come, and not until
all the exits had been opened and the
house staff and the police had as
sumed their emergency station was the
news broken to thc audience that the
houso wns on fire. The auditors were
assured there was no immediate dan
ger, and that if they took their time
everybody would set out In safety.
That thebc words of reassurance had a
salutary effect was proved by the fact
that after tho house had been cleared j
In three minutes and the staff had gone 1
through the auditorium and thc bulco
nles looking for personal belongings
that had been abandoned, they .found J
only two women's hats and a coat.
The actors In the theater. Inspired bv
the. coolness of Mr. McAllister and some
of his associates In thc company, were
coller even than the audience. They
remained In their dressing-rooms to
discard their costumes and put on
their street dress, and several of them,
feeling secure behind tho asbestos cur
tain and the Iron fire doors, did not
even leave the building during the
progress of the fire.
