As a result, of the inquiry futo the
Ramona disaster, September 10, off
Spanish island,. Federal Inspectors
Thomas P. Deering and Carl L*ehuers
have preferred charges against two
employes of the steamship?Martin
I Taafe, master,. and Herbert A. Tucker,!
chief engineer. Negligence on the !
part of a sworn officer of the United !
States was the specific accusation I
placed' against Tucker, while that I
against Taafe will not be indicated u-n- |
til the completion of Tucker's heariug.
The negligence with which the chief
| engineer was charged wa? in not clos
ing or attempting to have closed the
I watertight door in the after bulkhead
of the engine room, to check the water
coming from this direction;, and in not
: using all possible means at his disposal |
in endeavoring to relieve the vessel
while she was rapidly Ailing alter
striking a. roef where she became a
I wreck. .
A pet porcupiue which* strayed Eroui.
home ou the North wide has demon
strated his defensive system- when ap
proached by such strangers as a dog
; and a small boy. lu the woods they
i are generally secure,, a wildcat rarely
i catching one off watcb. Indians used
to eat thousand the fact that they are
edible led to a law in Wisconsin which
protected them ou the principle that
they are the ouly food animals which a
I lost traveler without a gun would be
able to kill, lu New Hampshire there
is, or was,. a bounty on them because
' of the damage tbey do trees. Fisher
men wild tell you. stories of the uui
sances that porcupiues can be if rods
: are left in accessible spots outside of
I camps. The porcupine has a fiondness
for salt that amounts to a passion.
Consequently be will gnaw the rod's !
handle, where perspiration has been
j ingrained. Tbo animal which has in
vention enough to kill' the porcupine
is the coyote. He has to have a team
mate and glue- a vaudeville show.
, When a porcupine sees danger in the
j shape of enemies he rolls himself into
a balLand projects his spikes. Find
ing him, this way, one coyote will back
awH# to a distance and the other will
begin running around in a. circle..
After a while the porcupine will take a
peek and become interested. The per
forming coyote keeps on ruuning and j
throws in a few antics until the spec
tator extends his head for a good
view. Then the other coyote sneaks
up behind: and grabs him by the
fleshy part of hia Sbroat. ? Ex.

HUDSON & NELSON, F-op're
UI had to hrre a gcrirfe to gatde my
guide," said Marcus Daly, well knowD
mining man of Montana, glibly gliding ^
from ug" to "g," and I wieb you would
write a story about the poor system
which annoys game hunters in Alaska."
Mr. Daly is at the Washington hotel,
having come down on the Alameda
from the Kenai peninsula, where he,
with Forest Durston, of Anaconda,
Mont., went in search of the ferocious
grizzly, sayn the P.I. "We got a few
mountain sheep, but no bears," said1
Mr. Daly?disappoiutedIy, "but we had *
a very good guide. He didn't know
any thing, or where to go, or bow to find
his way back after he had got there.
We would- st iil be walking in circles, I
guess, if 1 hadn't hired a man who
knew the country to show the guide
the way to go home. They have a sys
tem up there of compelling every
hunter to take out a licensed guide
with him. That isn't so bad. But the
supply of these license?, for some rea
son, has been limited and the most o?
them are held by incompetent men.
Many good men. who want licenses
cau't get them. That's why we had to.
hire a guide to guide our guide.'*
Seward. ? The seasou for placer min
ing in this section wad brought to an
abrupt close last weok in a manner
that probahly has not a precedent La
the annals of AJaska mining. While
the season usually closes about this <
time of year, it is usually brought
about by the freezing up of the
streams used for sluicing purposes,
but the cause of the general' closing
down of the different placer and. hy
draulic plants was the earthquake this
year. Things were booming aloug in
good shape up to last week, aud the
operators were congratulating them
Belves on the fact that,, owing to the
late seasou and the warm rains, they
would: be able to get in another couple
of weeks,, whenv wit boat a momenta
warning, entered the quake aud the
ditches were wrecked beyond imme
diate repairs. The suddeu shock open
ed seams in the crowded ditches, audi
the wateivgivon a start, completed the
jpb.. In a few moments every ditch on
the peninsula was out of commission,,
for this year at least.
A silver wire apposes the leact resist
auce to an electrical current, its conduo ?
tivity being slightly better than that oS
copper. Of the common. metals the con
ductivity of copper is the highest and'ia
usually taken as the standard of com
parison The conductivity of aluminum
is celatively high>it being about G3 per
cent of that of. copper, aud, owing to
its low specific gravity a comparison of
the two according to the factors of
both weight aud conductivity, alumi
num is the superior. An aluminum wire
having a conductivity equal to that u?
a copper wire will weigh less than one
halt as much and have au area of
cross'section 'iO per cent greater, which
in this case means approximately GO
per cent. greater streugth. Aluminum
is uow selling around 20 cents per
pound, while olectrolytic copper is
selling about. Li '2 -A cents. Thus con
sidering efficiency,. alumiuum is now
the cheaper metal for electric wire. ?
