Horn of Courtenay and John Vennum of this city, and left last night for Butte where he is intend ing to investigate the copper mining processes-there in force. Mr. Horn is a well known mining engineer in South. America and is looking over the copper mines in this country with a view of getting posted on the latest methods of mining that ore. He will visit Utah, Kansas City, and Ms been in Calumet, Mich. He is one of a large syndicate of United States capi talists who are developing some of the ancient mines in South America that have been worked for centuries in only the most primitive way by the natives. A great deal of money from this coun try is going into tdis field for invest ment but owing to the drawbacks of location and great cost of transporta tion, the work is slow. Many of the mines there "are very rich, but are in almost inaccessible mountain locations. It is more profitable to operate on 1 per cent ore in this country than 10 per cent ore in most parts of South America, says Mr. Horn, who goes to the Paris exposition to study the latest improved mining machinery which will be on exhibition there, before return ing to Chili. Senator Piatt of New York has al ready taken possession of the seat oc cupied for so many years by Mr. Quay. SOME PRAIRIE BREEZES. SOME TRUTHS IN HOMESPUN. Be wise, and envy not the man Attired however spick and span, True greatness empty fripperies but scorns, Silk hats may serve alone to dress A noddle full of emptiness, And patent leathers hide a wealth of corns. No garments, fine they be, yet can Make aldy or make gentleman. No garb, how poor it be, can ever hide The mark of true nobility, Nor velvet cloak, but we may see The boor, once its rich folds are dropped aside. No lady yet was made with lace Or silk, for Nature leaves a trace That every artifice is vain to hide, The lady is, in calico, Not less the gentlewoman, though She had no mark of gentleness beside.

Count no man your superior, Whatever his exterior. Appearance of true worth is not a rule, The jester's cap and jingling bells Full many a gem of wisdom tells, And wisdom's mortarboard may deck a fool. A king, by right and nature grown, Is king without a crown or throne, Simplicity but marks his kingliness, No crown or throne or signet ring, Can make a knave seem more a king, The purple only makes him seem the less. The boor, of any style or ilk, Is but the greater boor in silk, The garb but marks the more his boor ishness, No person ever yet that rose Above himself by help of clothes, The manner makes the man, and not the dress.

And on we sped, till gleaming white, A city rose, with stately spires And columns, rearing to the night The gold of twilight's fading fires. No strife was here, no echoes broke Of beings battling here alone Was peace and Charity bespoke The epitaph cut on each stone. My tempter turned the heavy key Flung eagerly the great gate wide', Then with a smile he beckoned me ,, And bade me follow him inside.

The first spike was driven in the Bis marck, Washburn & Great Falls rail way was driven this afternoon in the presence of a large crowd and with ap propriate ceremonies. Three silver spikes had been provided for the occa sion and at shortly after 2 o'clock these were driven and the northern railroad enterprise actually started on i'ts way. Mayor Patterson drove the first spike, followed by Miss Hilda Sat terlund, daughter of Hon. John Satter lund, who drove the second and Mrs. Dixon, wife of Chief Engineer Dixon, drove the third. The spikes were driven in the first rail connecting the new road with the Northern Pacific. After the driving of the spikes there were appropriate addresses delivered by Farmer Wallace, Dr. W. A. Bentley, R. N. Stevens and Judge Winchester. All of them dwelt on the significance of the new road as the link in a future great north and south road the length of the United States and paid a de served tribute to the enterprise and sa gacity of General W. D. Washburn, and to the persistent energy of Hon. John Satterlund, to whose efforts largely the beginning of the enterprise is due. All of the addresses were ap propriate and heartily applauded. At the close of the speechmaking three cheers were given for W. D. Washburn, Hon. John Satterlund and for three persons who drove the first spikes, Mayor Patterson, Miss Satter lund and Mrs. Dixon. The band was present at the opening of the ceremon ies and rendered several selections and altogether the Bismarck, Washburn & Great Falls railway was giving a fitting start toward the north. Mayor Patterson extended the good will of the city of Bismarck to the new road. BISriARCK. First Engine of the Bismarck, Wash burn & Great Falls Railway is Here.

Minneapolis Journal: The driving of the silver spike on the Bismarck, Washburn and Great Falls railway by Mayor E. G. Patterson of Bismarck yesterday, was fittingly celebrated by all the people in that section of coun try. It was an event of great signi ficance, as the building of the road, which the silver spike inaugurated, means transportation facilities for the residents on 300,000 acres of farming lands in the fertile country north of Bismarck. From now until October 1, when the line will be finished, the work of tracklaying will be pushed rap idly. Senator W. D. Washburn, president of the road, has been signally compli mented by the citizens of Bismarck, who yesterday sent him the following congratulatory telegrams: Hon. W. D. Washburn—City of Bis marck sends congratulations on the auspicious opening of your railroad. Silver spike was driven by the mayor, followed by speeches from prominent citizens, including Farmer Wallace and Hon. Messrs. Winchester and Bentley.

John Satterlund, Hon. W. H. Winches ter, Dr. W. A. Bentley, John F. Wallace, R. N. Stevens, M. H. Jewell and others. Germany will not fight with the United States, so we are assured, until she gets her fleet strengthened. When she does begin the fighting, she will receive large additions to her submar ine fleet. The talk of General Washburn for vice president is increasing. The general is in every way qualified, and his nomination would not interfere in any way with the new railroad'. Let the campaign cry be "On to Wasuburn and Washington!" BRYAN AND TOWNE. That is the Ticket Nominated by the Populists at Sioux Falls. Nebraska Cyclone Heads the Ticket With Minnesota Charley in Second Place. Sioux Falls, S. D., May 11.—The na tional populist convention concluded its session at 1 o'clock this morning, and adjourned sine die after nominat ing Hon. W. J. Bryan for president and Hon. C. A. Towne for vice president. This result was accomplished after a struggle of several hours duration in which an effort was made to have the question of the nomination of a vice presidential candidate referred to a committee to confer with the demo cratic and silver republican conven tion. A motion to this effect was de feated 2«58 to 402." Both candidates were nominated by acclamation, but before this was accomplished various names were placed in nomination. There were three sessions during the' day. The first of these was barren of results excepting for supplying ma chinery for committee work and the session was well under way before the assemblage got down to business. The morning session was given up to or ganization by the election of T. M. Patterson for permanent chairman and the selection of other officers, and pass ing upon the report of the committee on credentials. These matters were accomplished without much difficulty. When Patterson had finished his speech, the convention at 12:2 p. m. adjourned, as the committee on reso lutions was not ready to report. When the convention reassembled, the committee was not ready to report and the convention gave attention to addresses pertinent to the occasion. One of these was made by Mrs. McDon ald Valesh, a lady delegate from the District of Columbia, who reviewed in a forcible manner the labor troubles in Idaho. Contrary to the expectations of some of the delegates the resolutions aroused no debate, and with these adopted the convention found itself rather suddenly and unexpectedly face to face with the nomination of can didates. Bryan's nomination was by acclamation. There were half a score or more speeches in Bryan's behalf. All these were brief and pointed, while full of praise for the candidate. The speakers were led off by Senator Allen of Bryan's own state, and he was fol lowed in quick succession by ex-Con gresman Jerry Simpson of Kansas. "Cyclone" Davis of Texas, Senator Marion Butler of North Carolina, and one or two others. Each mention of Bryan aroused enthusiasm, and when there was a call to rise in support of the proposition to make his nomination unanimous not only did every delegate rise in his seat, but each rose with a shout and hurrah and with waving of hands. The scene was an animated one, but it was prolonged and after a minute or two of demonstration, the delegates sank back into their chairs. Thus was Bryan again formally made a candidate for the presidency. And thus was his campaign of I'.ioo inau gurated. Then toward the close -of the afternoon session began the real contest of the convention. This was the fight over the vice presidency, or rather the fight over tlie proposition not to make any nomination for the vice presidential'office, but to refer the entire matter to a committee to be ap pointed to confer with the democrats and silver republicans in their con vention to be held at Kansas City. Both propositions to nominate and to refer, and also various compromise suggestions were presented, and upon them was based quite a memorable de bate, whicxi not only developed a great oratory, but came near in terminating in a fisticuff. Speeches were made by E. Gerry Brown and George F. Wash burn, both from the state of Massa chusetts, who uiffered on both proposi tions by Senators Butler and Allen, who also differed by Gen. Weaver and Jerry Simpson. Dr. Taylor of Chicago, who spoke warmly by Charles A. Towne, and by others. They presented all sides and shades of the controversy, the debate lasting far into the night, before the close was reached. The exciting event of the convention was occasioned when Con gressman Keiley of South Dakota, be coming excited over the failure to se cure recognition, rose in his seat and denounced the occupant of the chair as a "bunco steerer." Chairman Patter son responded spiritedly. There were cries of "put him out," and a number of delegates gathered about Mr. Keiley. Quiet was, however, soon restored, and the convention proceeded as if nothing unusual had occurred. When the roll call was begun on the ballot for vice president, Mr. Rynder. of Pennsylvania, withdrew in favor of Towne. Jerry Simpson of Kansas then withdrew the name of Mr. Briden thal in favor of Towne. Mr. E. G. Brown of Massachusetts said he would withdraw his name in order to facili tate matters. This left only the names of Towne. and Lentz before the convention. The Montana delegation which had presented the name of Lentz was asked to withdraw his name, but refused to do so. Mr. Schilling, of Wisconsin, then moved that the rules be suspended and that Charles A. Towne be declared the vice presiden tial nominee by acclamation. The motion was carried, only four men from Montana voting against it The result was greeted by the Minnesota delegation with great delight and the blowing of their tin horns.
