To prevent th* burning out of th* fur- nace, Mr. Vaughn adopted a mineral found In the f* scarie mountains, whirh can be either mixed Into a planter or molded Into briega and with which he lines hi* fur nace. The peculiarity of this material la that. Instead of expanding with heat. It contract*. and will neither crack nor break, growing harder as the heat in"r<a»fc«. The temperaiure required for fluxing Is 4 «*» degree*, and this waa attained yester day In a iihort time with no 111 eff«-ct».

The experimental furnace with which the teat waa made yesterday I* built of hrlcfc, rtirrounded with sheet iron to hide the roughnesa of the structure. The body of the furnace I* four feet In diameter and six feet high. Including the legs. From this rise# a smokestack twelve Inches In diam eter arid four feet high to the elbow where It turns to pass out of the building, and in the side of thla stack Is the door through Which the furnace is fed The lining of fire brick Is plastered with the patent fire-proof composition described shove. A cold blast I* furnished by a blower operated by an electric motor, and enters through tuyeres tapering from 4 down to IV* Inches where they enter the furnace. The gas for fuel is Introduced through m %-tnch pipe, which enters through the tuyeres, and Is fed from a tank beneath the floor. At one side, near the bottom. Is the vent through which the metal Is tapped Into molds. In which It Is cast Into Ingots. The furnace has been erected In the rear of a storeroom In the old Bank of North Heatlle building, at the corner of Itattery street and First avenue, and power is furnished by a three-horse power motor, although only one-horse power Is needed The crowd of onlookers was k»pt back from the furnace by ropes when Mr. Vaughn began his test at 2 o'clock yester day afternoon. Assisted by E. C, Byera. general manager of the company. Before the furnace the floor was covered with piles of matte, with which a little lime stone was mixed, and with piles of coke. Mr Vaughn threw in alternate shovelfuls of matte and coke, set the blower going and turned on the gasoline Then the furns« e began to roar He soon stopped feeding £oke and fed nothing but matte For thirty-seven minutes this operation continued, and then the vent was tapped and a stream of molten metal poured into an Ingot mold The vent was ag;Un closed, more matte was shoveled in and In thirteen minutes more another Ingot was molded After several Ingots had in-en thus " ast. crude copper sulphide ore from the Copper Queen claim near Index, owned by the I.oat Creek Mining Com pany. was fed in The sulphur in this ore being sufficient to generate the r quired heat, the gas was turned ofT and the spectacle was presented of ore fur hlahlng its own file! More ingots were cast and the furnace was proud a prac tical as welt as theoretical success The advantages claimed for this furnace were thus sMtcd to the Foat-Intelligencer representative by Mr By» rs "To erect a plant of ten ton* In twenty tour hours at his mine, a miner would have to park in about 2i*» Are brick for the lining, a furnace bottom composed of two pieces of iron weighing at >ut sixtj pounds ea<-h; a very light blast pipe in sections, and tuyeres of the same material; the patent material for lining, which would be cither in four cans about the sixe of a flve gallon oil can. if It were to be used as plaster. or In the ahap« of S»i bricks; s blower; a three-horse pow>r electric motor and a water wheel If the ore does not contain enough sulphur, he would re quire gasoline In live gallon cans.

The cry I* frequently heard that ' There ar* no minstrels like the good old-time minstrels," and while Messrs. Primrose & West, who bring th» ir gr» it organisation to the Seattle theater tonight, will no doubt grant the truth of this proposition, still they will very probably claim that they are giving the public that waich is in every way better and grander. Negro minstrelsy Is purely an American institution, and. Hkf all other American in stitutions. the tendency is to combine and consolidate. There Is enough material In Primrose & West's present company to hav* made ftt least five of the old-style companies or "troupes." as they were known. While this tendency to consolida tion may be reprehensible in some great lines of trade, it can hardly he called so in the cas* of these gentlemen, who have thu* succeeded in banding together such a great aggregation of this class of talent In their case It is the amusement-loving public who are the gainers, as no attempt has been made to Increase the prices of admission. The great feature of this enormous attrac tion is. first, the fact that they really have a double company, two separate and dis tinct organixations. numbering over sev enty people in all. Of th* great specialists, first and foremost, of course, is George Primrose, who Is too well known to need commendation; George Wilson. "Walts Me Again, George." a funmaker who has been before the public for twenty-five years; Howe. Wall and Walters. Jimmie Wall, and others of equal note. A novelty In this season's programme Is a new march called "The Phantom Guards." Invented and ar ranged by William H. West, and put on by the firm at considerable outlay for cos tumes. light effects, etc. "A Ran on the Buak." Ward and Vykes. as "Percy and Harold." have probably caused more gf-nulne laughs and more favorable newspaper notices than any team In the theatrical profession. For years with that great amusement ca terer. Tony Pastor, they received the best possible schooling, which brought out their great store of rich humor and spontaneous wit. Burlesque was their fort, and an evening spent hearing and seeing them and their company In "A Run on the Bank'" is one of the pleasantest things in store for theater-goers. The piece is magnificently mounted, and rwenty-six ladies and gentle men are required In Its presentation Their Initial engagement Is announced for two nights. commencing Sunday next, at the Seattle theater. Charles Guyer, the acro batic comedian, who attracted every one by his work in Hanlon Bros.' production of • Superba" last year, is playing Row Legs, the bartender.

Not only have Johnson and Lundin caught on at the Third Avenue theater in their remarkable feats of Juggling and exhibitions of strength, but Frank R«>ad l< k and his company in "The Smuggler" seem to have met with popular favor. Judging from the large audiences which greet them nightly. The play is a strong one and the jompany Is cast to the tv-st P -siblf advantage Miss Wolford 1* do ing much better work than last week, and Hiss Nettie Abbott as Polly has the best opportunity that she has had since ner opening here, and she is improving it.

The Oreffoman of Tuesday print* a num t*?r of interviews with Portland nulroad m-n on thr subject of thr change in the general management of thr Oregon Rail way A Navliratton affaire from Mr. E. M< N>ill to A. L. Mohler. and thr removal rf the former's headquarters to <mm*' point tn thr Ea»t. The announcement furnished food for gossip on railroads and politic* amwn thr wise one* in Portland. "Jim Hill Is behind that appointment." said one "Mr. Mohler served under Mr. Hill many years." said another, "and the Napoleon of Western roads fully appre ciate the value of his .services, although it is said that Mr. M<>hier and Mr. Hill have not ala-ays agreed In the past." The opportunity for renewing the prophecies of the gigantic combination of all the overland roads with "Jim Hill" as master of ceremonies over them all was made the most of. and discussed and received with many vivid additions and variations. Said one railroad enthusiast: "This more than Jim Hill. Of course. It is the first throw In the deal by which the Great Northern, the Northern Pacific, the Oreron Railway A Navigation, the Short Line, and may be the Union Pacific will tie consolidated under one di recting head, but it m*>ans a still greater power behind Jim Hill. I mean the Van derbllts. They have for some time been stretching out to secure control of the Western lines, and this looks as though they had at last secured an opening. It Is ar. open secret that not long ago the Chi cago. St. Paul. Minneapolis A Omaha and the Chicago A Northwestern closed a traf fic arrangement with the Great Northern similar to the one existing between the Union Pacific and the Chicago A North western. and as the Chicago. St. Paul. Minneapolis A Omaha and the North western are both Vanderbilt roads, it is easy to reach the conclusion that an un derstanding exists between Mr. Hill and the Vanderbilts. In other words, it means a combination of the German bankers and the Vanderbilts. which will result In ab solute control of all the transcontinental rottds In the Northwest, Including the Eastern lines In the Vanderbilt belt. It does not follow that these different inter ests will be under one gi«antic manage ment. On the contrary, the policy of the Vanderbilts has always been to run each one of their roads separate, with a sepa rate set of officers for each system, hold ing each accountable for results, but all under the all-powerful influence of one head to see that no rate-cutting Is carried to the Injury of the property. This, t think, you will find will be the policy adopted by this new combine." Mr. Mohler already has hosts of friends In Portland among the older railroad men. all of whom have worked under and tfith him for feriods covering from live fo twenty years, and all ex.pr.ssed their delight at his coming. Said one promi nent railroad man, who objected to be lnjr punted: "Major McNeill and Mr Mohler will make the finest railroad team that any directors could possibly wish for who have the true Interest of their property at heart. They don't make 'whiter' men than Mr. Mohler. 1 am speaking by the card. 1 worked with him for fifteen years and I consider him one of the best rail road men on the American continent, aside from the fact that he ts a gentle man In every sense of the word. Even years ago. when I worked with him. he vi ls then an able, sagacious and far-pee ing man. and I am sure that he has not deteriorated in that time. He certainly will be a great addition to the railroad contingent of the Pacific coast, and Port land merchants are extremely fortunate to secure so able a m.tn for a cltlxen." Mr. H C. Eikeobergj*. a well-known railroad man. has known and been asso ciated with -Mr. Mohler for over twenty years He said: "Mr. Mohler ha® had a most thorough railroad training in both the operating and traffic departments, and he is in every sense of the word a first class rail road man. Aside from that he is ex tremely popular, not only with railroad men, but with all who are brought in contact with him In other words, he is very democratic In his way®, and you enter his office and you feel as If you were meeting an old friend. I am satis fied th.it he will bo very popular with the business people of Portland." Mr E. S Jackson, who was formerly with the Great Northern under Mr. Moh ler. and a personal friend of long stand ing. added his mite to the general eulo gies heard In all the railroad offices. He said: "I knew Mr. Mohler most Intimately, and always found him a straight-forward up-to-date, thorough-going railroad mm. liorh in the operating and traffic depart ments. He is an excellent man to Ret alone with, most srenial and always ap proachable. His door is always open, and he abominates excluslveness. I think the people of Portland will be satisfied with him socially, as well as from a com mercial standpoint." % Srw I.nnoh Plnoe.

Friday and Saturday, instead of Saturday. Sun day and Monday. This was done at the Instance of the business men. who seemed to think such aa arrangement would fur ther their interests. From expressions heard at last night's meeting, it would appear that on none of the three days of celebration Will the business houses close. Thi* will natural ly affect the attendance at the various places of entertainment. The Queen City Good Roads Club, which had planned at Its own expense a grand bicycle meet for Monday afternoon and evening. »in the supposition that on that day business houses would be closed, considers the change of days as putting a material ob stacle in the way of a successful meet. It was decided that a committee made up of B. Schoenfeld. W. H. Lewis and Henry Hensel should visit the merchants and ask them to close up on Friday or Satur day, allowing everybody at least one holi day. J. B. MacDougall stated that he had never closed on the Fourth and would not do so this time. The meeting was really called to ascer tain the amounts needed by the various committees. While there was not a large representation present, the amounts asked by the leading committees footed about M.IOO. For the fireworks committee. Chair man Crichton asked K.iOO for a two nights' display. The sports committee sought s"io. This would be distributed in prist s for the competitive militia drill, the Lake Wash ington regatta, the contest of hose teams and other sports. The expenses of the bicycle meet will be borne by the Queen City Good Roads Club. Other committees asked the following appropriations: Yacht ing. $350. mining, S2OO, Illuminating, 1500, and music, Will A. Steele, chairman of the press committee, reported that the expenses of advertising the celebration throughout the fctate would amount to about fclW. On mo tion by Oilson this amount was allowed, and the committee was authorized to go ahead. The sum so far contributed is Jl WW. This has been raised from a careful canvass of First and Western avenues. Second ave nue and the lower part of town are yet un tried. The question of soliciting funds for the* celebration has proved such a knotty prop osition that it was deemed necessary by the executive committee to appoint a so licitor. Amoe Brown was chosen to act in this capacity. Those present were: Chairman I. Ro senthal. Amos Brown, Will A Steel, Jules Redelsheimer. W. H. Lewis. J. B. Mac- Dougall. Henry Hensel. L. B. Younts. G. N. Gilson. Dr. J. E. Crichton. M P. Barnes, Will H. Parry and B Schoenfeld. The next meeting, to be held Wednesday nUht. will be a general one. at which all committeemen are expected to be present. »U«»ld-i*lat«-<l \ lotor." W B.
