A friend of Horace J. Craft whose mar
riage to a Honolulu heiress was published
in the Inter Mountain yesterday, says
that there are several inaccuracies in the
item. Mr. Craft, he says, left Butte, not
on a pleasure trip, hut for the purpose of
engaging in business. His wife hiad left
him sixteen months prior to his departure
and he had applied for a divorce, the
proofs being heard before Judge Lindsay
last September. His former wife was am

now supposed to be engaged with some

Holter Reported to Have Sold
His Interest In
Purchase Price Not Stated-The Cop
per Market—The Outlook for
the Metal Good.
The sharp decline In Parrot stock last
week, which carried the price down to
$18. was reported to be due to the selling
of A. M. Holtcr's interest. Late advices
from Boston are to the effect that Thomas
Lawson, the noted broker and speculator
of that city, has acquired the 15.000 shares
owned by Mr. Hotter and will turn it
over to t | le Amalgamated Copper com
pany. Just what effect this will have on
the remaining shares held •outside of the
trust cannot be learned.
A gentleman who has made a careful
study of the copper market says: "The
preserrt boom in the copper mining indus
try ; s going to be of great permanent
benefit to the country. It was, of course,
star t e d by steady diminution of the visi
supplies of the metal,
we sunpue» or tne metai. due to the
growing consumption of copper.'Hie good
thing about it exists in that fact that
about two years are required to develop a
mine. Inside of two years there will be a
great and sudden increase in the demand
for copper, and only for the present spec
u la five movement, which is destined to
, . ,
e, °P mar J3> £ood e °PP er mines, this
demand would have to be supplied with a
satisfactory metal,
ref , er to the equipment of the »team
railroads with electricity. At the present
time a passenger train weighs fifty times
as much as the passengeis it is capable of
carrying. This fact alone should prove
conclusively that in this age of progress
a change in the system must come very
soon. The car of the near future will not
weigh more than twice as much as the
passengers it carries. A small motor
weighing a few hundred pounds will take
the place of the hundred ton locomotive.
Railroad fares will be decreased and pro
fits increased by the change. The amount
of copper necessaiy to equip all of the
trunk lines of this and other countries for
. electrical motive power will be simply
enormous There are not yetenough mines
under development to supply it. and the
| copper mining industry is comparatively
in its infancy.

copper is freely obtainable at 18c, but
this price does not offer any inducement.
For electrolytic copper, prices 'have been
shaded somewhat, and sales have been
made at 16%c for cakes, wirebats and in
gots and 16%-c for cathodes, while casting
copper remains nominal at 16%c. There
have been some inquiries for export, but
hardly any business resulted, as the
prices asked here appear to be above the
ideas of foreign buyers.
The London market has been very ir
regular and in the main rather weak.
The opening was somewhat higher than
the close of last week, at £76, but on the
same day the market quickly declined to
£75 10s, and 12s Gd less for three months
prompt. On June 6. spot remained steady
at £75 10s(ff£75 12s Gd, but three months
copper found more support, and dealings
took place at £75 5s and £75 7s Gd. On
June 7 a further decline set in, and spot
copper was £74 15sP£74 17s Gd, and three
months prompt 5s lower. These were the
lowest prices for the week. On June 8
spot delivery sold at £75 7s 6d<ff>£75 10s,
and three months copper 2s Gd higher, this
being the first time in several weeks that
spot copper was lower than forward, the
latter a short time ago selling as much as
£2 below the price of spot. With this quo
tation a somewhat healthy state of affairs
i been established and the closing
prices today are firm at £76 5s@£76 7s Gd
for both spot and three months.
Fine copper abroad was very much
pressed for sale, and in most cases lower
quotations have been established. We,
have to quote: English tough, £77 10»@

Boston & Montana was pegged during
the day at $345 with $350 asked. Butte A
Boston was stationary at $75 with ap
parently no sales. Parrot kept at $53%

The inquest on the remains of Wilbur
Boyce, who died yesterday from the ef
fects of an overdose of morphine, prob
ably taken with suicidal intent, will be
held at Richards' undertaking' rooms to
night, and it is quite probable that some
testimony will be adduced at the inquisi- i
tion tending to explain the motives that ;
led up to the rash deed. i
To a friend whom Boyce had known i
since boyhood he confided his intention of |
taking his life, but as the young man
was considered somewhat erratic by his
associates no attention was paid to the
threat, as his friend did not dream that
he seriously considered making an end
of himself. This was on Miners' Union
day and Boyce was considerably under
the influence of liquor at the time.
It was learned today that Boyce's wife ]
is with her father and sister in St. Joe, |
Missouri. The statement that she is in j
Seattle is a mistake.
The remains of the unfortunate young
man are at the residence of his uncle, J. ;
H. Curtis, at No. 334 South Washington I
street, and at which place the funeral j
services will be held Sunday afternoon at j
2 o'clock. The Rough Riders, of which ;
the deceased was a member, will probably !
turn out in a body to do honor to the
memory of their late comrade.
