I Special to the Tutor Mountain.
I New York, Dec. :w.—'The failure of the
1 Globe National bank does not affect the
Daly or Lewisolin interests in Butte cop
per stocks hilt simply wipes out the Bige
, low crowd and increases the Standard
iOil holdings. The Hurry is over and
Ute stocks are expected to advance.
I Conflicting reports are current concern
ing Daly's movements. Whether he will
resume active management is uncertain.
His health is splendid but his vast wealth
! may incline him to take a long rest. His
contract as manager will expire in May.
Its renewal is optional with him. It is
reported that he will return to Montana
on a brief visit early in January. Should
he retire, Hyarns will succeed him and the
company policy will undergo a change.
' A strong effort is being made to bring
I Daly and Clark together by the other
copper millionaires. It is stated that J.
B. Hagg'in no longer has a dollar invested
in Montana. The copper slump was
( caused entirely by the contraction of the
money market owing to the African war
and the scheme of the Standard Oil peo
ple to close out Bigelow and get his stock.
Never in this country was there such a
powerful combination of capitalists as
that which is now reaching out to control
the world's copper. The government it
self financially is not much stronger.
The senate committee in the Clark
case meets January 5th merely to decide
when and where to take testimony.
Speaker Stiff and oth°r anti-Clark legis
lators are already in Washington in con
sultation with Callahan, Hartman and
.Campbell, forming a plan of campaign.
They are confident. Clark's supporters
have learned the value of silence and are
talking but lhttle. They are confident.
The Wellcome disbarment decision is
characterized by Clark as the outcome of
a political plot against him. He denies
that lie corrupted anybody and challenges
an investigation. Wellcome confesses to
surprise at the action of the court and
says he paid too little attention to the
charges against him despite the character
of his accusers.
Mrs. Wellcome and Mrs. Murray have
arrived at the Waldorf. Mesdames
Geoffrey Lavell and Patrick Clark of Spo
kane are also there, all to meet their hus
bands.

Otis' Marriage Beciee.
Now York, Pec. 30.—A dispatch to the
Hetald from Manila says; Six men of
the signal corps were attacked Thursday
at Talevera, east of Tariac. by a force of
200 Insurgents and four of them were ei
ther killed or captured.
A dispatch staling that the Filipinos
wrere harnassing the entire Lingayen
coast from Vigan to San Jacinto in small
bands and that Lieut. J. C. Gilmore and
the members of the cruiser Yorktown's
crew w ho are prisoners of the rebels, had
been separated and were witii the insur
gent bands in the northern mountains is
not believed as Gen. Young has contrary
advices.
The strength of the insurgents at Ma
talabon caused surprise to the Americans.
Merchants here are anxious to have the
campaign in Cavite province begun so
that it may be the sooner finished and the
ports be opened to trade.
Gin. Otis' recent decree authorizing
civil marriages makes no provision for
divorce. Only the Catholic reasons for
separation are recognized in the order.
Girls 12 years old and boys 14 are permit
ted to marry with the consent of their
parents, but otherwise they must be 21
years old.
In order to remove any doubt of the
status of Protestant marriages performed
during tile last year by army chaplains,
where one of the contracting parties was
a Catholic, Gen. Otis' order was made re
troactive. Native women who have
married soldiers without Catholic rites
have been ostracized by their relatives.
Justice Arellano requested the omis
sion of a divorce clause from the decree
because of the belief of the Filipinos that
the marriage tie cannot be broken.
Many Firemen Hurt,
Chicago, Dec. 30.—Fire at an early hour
to-day completely gutted the building ex
tending from 216 to 222 Monroe street,
badly damaged the building at 212, 214
'Monroe street, caused a loss aggregating
$950,000 and resulted in the injury of nine
firemen, two of them serious. The injur
ed are:
Captain Hubert O'Connor, serious.
James Wolley, serious.
William Padden.
Michael O'Hara.
Captain John Evans.
Luke Hayes.
Lieutenant Oswald.
The fire is supposed to have originated
on the 2nd floor in the work room of
Wooley & Co., wholesale woolens. 220 and
222 Monroe street, and fanned by a fierce
northwest wind spread so sapidly that
when the first fire company arrived on the
scene the whole south end of the build
ing was a mass of flames. A second and
third alarm was sent in but in spite of
the tons of water thrown into the build
ing by its engines and two fire tugs the
wind and bitter cold so hindered the fire
men that for a time the entire wholesale
district was in danger. Flames quickly
communicated to the building at 216 and
21S Monroe street, gradually spreading
east to 212 and 214 Monroe where its pro
gress was finally checked. Immense
brands were carried as far as 12lh street,
and the firemen were kept busy extin
guishing small fires on roofs surrounding
the buildings.
She Waits In Vain.
Chicago. Dec. 30.—While the lifeless
body of James W. Peletier lies at the
county morgue, a disappointed woman at
Norfolk, Va., waits for the coming of her
betrothed. It developed to-day that Pel
etier, who committed suicide Tuesday in
a cheap lodging house, was on his way
to Virginia to be married to a woman who
has waited for him for seven years. He
came to Chicago from Marysville, with a
good supply of money. But before he
had been in Chicago long his money, rail
road ticket and baggage checks were stol
en. He made his way to a hotel on Dear
born street and told his story to the pro
prietor. He deelared that he had written
to his relatives in Missouri and expected
that they would send him money to go on
with his journey in a few days. The
money did not arrive and, becoming de
spondent, he took laudanum and died at
the county hospital.
Oregon Exhibit at Paris.
Portland, Ore., Dec. 30.—Fifteen cases
of Oregon products to represent tic state
at tile Paris exposition were started to
day. This will be in addition to the 30
cases of products already sent forward
which represented grains and grasses,
fruits and specimens of commercial
woods. Tlu: shipment to-day represents
Oregon flour and manufactured cereals,
canned Columbia river salmon and Ore
gon-grown seeds. The exhibits will be
s -nt to San Francisco from which point
the Southern Pacific railroad company
will take it to Paris and exhibit i: in con
nection w;:h products of all the states
through which the Southern Pacific sys
tem runs. The mineral exhibit for Ore
gon'will go forward later through the
same channels.
Arbitrate Labor Troubles.
Chicago. Dec. 30.—A permanent arbitra
tion board to settle all differences be
tween labor unions and contractors and
the averting of the chances of labor war
practically were assured to-day. At the
meeting of the building trades council and
the building contractors council the re
port of the .1 1 • i nt conference committee
representing the two organizations was
accepted.
The principal recommendation was the
establishment of a permanent arbitra
tion board. This will consist of all mem
bers and will deal with judicial difficulties
that may arise. The acceptance of the
plan settles the question of sympathetic
strikes, as if all troubles are arbitrated
there will he no necessity for any kind
of a strike except as a last resort.
A Temperance Call.
•Chicago, Dec. 30.— In accordance with
the call issued by the Young People's
, Temperance Federation of America,
j through its political action department,
.a convention will assemble in this city
Sunday to consider the question of apply
ing the principles of Christianity to na
I tional government. Speakers will pre
sent Ute question from different points nf
view and an open discussion will be a
feature of the executive part of the ses
sion.
