Howard, who recently absconded from Winnipeg, Manitoba, with «15,000 belonging to Wood & Wells, of Milbank, Canada, was ar rested in Denver. The entire amount of the money was recovered.

A sharp contest is being waged he tween Millionaire Flood and Senator Sharon for the control of Ophir stock through proxies. It started this af> ternoon at «3 per share. Sharon se cured a majority of the stock, which has risen from 6 to 11%. There is an election of officers of the company to be held on the 10th. John McKay, formerly in the employ of Clarke, Conrad & Curtin, Helena, arrived in the city last night from the Cœur d'Alene mines. He reports the trail broken into the mines from Rath drum, and that four pack trains have gone in there since the 1st inst. About seventy-five men will winter there. Mr. McKay is very much elated over the gold and silver quartz discoveries, but echoes the suggestions of others that no one should attempt to go to the mines before spring. He also says that the miners will not allow a China man in the district. Mr. McKay has some interests in placer ground, and is convinced the ground will yield a large return.—In ter Mountain. the Hew the Cables Were Made For Brooklyn Bridge. After the towers had been built anc the anchorages made ready, then came the strangest work of all. To make the cables and then put them over the tow ers would be a difiincult matter. Very likely it could not be done at all. So the cables were made, just where they hang, one small wire at a time. The cables are not chains with links, nor &r< they twisted like ropes. They are bun dies of straight wires laid side by side, and bound together by wires woum tightly around the outside. They eul the work "weaving the cable." At the Brooklyn anchorage was placed a powerful steam-engine, and o: the top of the anchorage were placed two large wheels, and with the aid o proper m ach in ery the engine causée these wheels to turn forward or back ward. From each wheel was stretched a steel rope to the top of the Brooklyn tower, over the river, over the other tower, and down to the New York anchorage. Here it passed over another wheel, and then stretched all the wav back again. The ends were fastened together, making an endless rope, and when the engine moved, the rope. traveled to and fro over the river. For this reason they were called the "trav elers." There were, besides these travelers, two more ropes placed side by side. On these were laid short pieces of oak, thus forming a foot-bridge on which the workman could cross the river. There were also other ropes for sup porting platforms, on which the men stood as the weaving went on. On each traveler was hung an iron wheel, and as the traveler moved the wheel went with it. It took only ten minutes to send two wires over .the river in this way. The men on the foot-bridge and on the plat forms suspended from the other ropes guided tne two , wires into place, and thus the cables were woven, little by little, two slender steel wires each tune, and carefully laid in the place till &,434 wires were bound together in a huge cable, fifteen and three-quarter inches in diameter. The work was fairly started by the 11th of June, 1877, and the last wire was laid Oct. 5, 1878. There are four caT>les, each 3,578} feet kmc, and if all the wires in the four cables were wigt' „ The work was long and dangerous. Sometimes the wire would break and fall into the water, and an hour or nunre would be spent in hauling it up and starting once more. Tlio nu n on the foot-bridge or on the cradles ligh h*. the air watched every wire as it was laid'in place. To start and stop the engine, men stood on the top of the towers and waved signal-flags to the engineer. Such a ma s s of wires would not very easily keep in place, and as the work went on, a number of wires were bound together into little bundles 5 placed in line, they woulr ?h over 14,000 miles. or ropes, and at the end all were bound together into one smooth round In ftr cable .—Charles Barnard, ffichok*. ...
