MINISTER CONGER Administration Displeased With His Despite Minister Conger's valuable services in China, it is feared that his recall is inevitable, owing to the grave mistake he made in the conduct of the negotiations on the protocol, when he accepted a British proposition that placed America in a false position. More serious than this ingle slip is the fact that Mr. Conger has frequetly not acceded lo thea dministration's wishes without protest. As neither the president nor Secretary Hay will brook an tagonism by the representatives of the government abroad it is predicted that Mr. Conger will soon see his native land again. SMELTER OUTLOOK Everthing Points to This City as the Coming Center of Wo k: MINERAL TRUST Will Increase the Capac ity of El Paso Works and Operate Here. Yesterday's dispatches announced the closing of the deal which has been pending for some time between the Guggenheims and the American Smelting and Refining company and the formation of the greatest smelting and miueral trust in the world. This consolidation, while it may not prove profitable to every section, will undoubtedly be a great thing for El Paso, if the maneuvers of the officials of the two companies sustain their sig nificance. C. E. Finney, of New York, general manager of the Guggenheim interests, and H. R. Simpson, of Kansas City, general manager of the Kansas City Smelting and Refining company's plants, spent last week in El Paso in specting the property of the consoli dated company here. They have just left for Colorado where they will ex amine all the property of the company In the Rocky mountains. Neither of the officials were clear in explaining their business in El Paso but it is thought by those who are most interested that they were here to examine the grounds of the El Paso plant with the view of ordering ma terial changes. Situated as it is in the very heart of the richest mining coun try in the world as well as the largest, having all railroad accommodations and being the center of the territory controlled by the trust, the El Paso plant, it is believed, will be made the most Important plant operated by the company. Already the El Paso plant is about the second largest in the world and with the Interests of the two com panies consolidated the opinion pre vails that El Paso will become the cen ter and operating headquarters of the trust. Before the consolidation the Guggen heims shipped an average of fifty cars of ore per week through El Paso from their Mexico mines to other plants of the company. Since the recent deal all this ore is to be treated in El Paso as well as the many cars that have been going from northern Mexico to the Guggenheim plants at Aguascalien- Continued on Fifth Page.)

He Awakes in Another World, and Un luckily is not in a Condition to Tell About What He Sees There. Death came to Mandonio Esparzo while he ' slept last night. He fell asleep in this world and awakened in the next. Esparzo was a tailor by trade and was a man or unusually large propor tions and ample girth. He weighed fully 300 pounds and was a jnan who loved his grog and worshiped at the shrine of Epicure. It is said that he had been on a spree since he carnival and that death resulted from defective heart action due to excessive drink. At any rate he was found dead in his room at 212 Fifth street at eight o'clock this morning. He had retired at his usual hour, but failed to get up this morning as had been his custom. Other occupants of the adobe dwelling knocked on his door, but receiving no response entered and found Esparzo lying upon his bed as if asleep. They were unable to awaken him and the physician who was called pronounced him lifeless and said that in all prob ability death had resulted several hours before,- soon after midnight. Justice Spencer was summoned at 9 o'clock and held the inquest to dis cover probable cause of death. After a thorough investigation he said death was due to heart failure or apoplexy, probably due to the excessive ute of stimulants, which would naturally tend to suffocate a man of extreme weight whose heart action might be inter fered with by fatty matter surrounding it. Esparzo was removed to the under takers, but after his measurement was taken it was discovered that there was not a coffin in the house large enough to contain the remains and the attendants had to construct alpine box sufficiently broad to hold the body. THE DELEGATION FOR THE AUSTIN CONVENTION. It Is to Be Regretted That More Bus iness Men Cannot Arrange to Go. Secretary Russell, E. M. Bray, and W. H. Tuttle of the chamber of com merce at the state convention of com mercial clubs, which meets there on the 25th. Mr. Russell has endeavored to get several others to go with the delega tion from here but none have agreed to go on account of their pressing busi ness engagements.

El Paso Is attracting the notice of the entire coun try just now and a big delegation to this meeting means more than the cas ual observer would imagine. All El Paso schemes should be heartily sup ported by El Paso people for from all this advertising good, results are sure to come. A DENVER FAMILY EVIDENTLY TAINTED WITH INSANITY OF A BLOODY SORT.

A GOOD FELLOW Who Likes To Meet Ameri cans, and the Whole Party Made Many Friends. The Duke of Manchester is one of the most prominent dukes of England. He is decidedly the most popular in America, where he has spent 'a great deal of his time since his childhood. He is more of an American than an ' Englishman, and is a clever, every-day boy. Many criticisms have been heaped upon -him for his recklessness, but those who know him better understand that while he has been extravagant and wayward, his position as heir to a seati in parliament and a great estate has led him to think lightly of money, . which trait has many times embarrass ed him with his friends. Manchester is one of the most pleas ant English nobleman who ever visit ed this country, and is entirely clear of vanity and bigotry. This has made him popular in the United States and offsets many of his short comings. Manchester likes to meet the society of the towns he visits, not that honor' might be done him. but that he might pass the time more pleasantly. He is probably affected less by the possession of title than any other English noble man, and his bold and plain ways have always made him popular with the op posite sex in the eastern cities. He Is a man of sentiment and not a cold cinder like some of his fellow coun trymen. He selects as his companions men and women who are natural in disposition, and while here yesterday AMERICAN COMMISSIONER Congressman Sereno E. Payne Prom inent in International Affairs. Conspicuous among the members -of the Canadian-American High Commis sion is Representative Sereno E. Payne, of the Empire state, who is one of the most ardent champions of this the Dominion. " made no one who met him feel awk ward or embarrassed. "I have always been fond of the so ciety of Americans," he said to a Her ald reporter last night, "for Americans are usually just what they seem to be. I have spent most of my time in the United States because I enjoy the so ciety of Americans and 1 like their natural and simple ways." Manchester now possesses his title and position in parliament if full and of course will spend more of his time in England. Having married an Amer 1- v&:? 'iff' ican girl with millions of money will naturally make him more fond of America but his position will keep him at home more in the future. Lord Lambert, who is traveling with Manchester, is another of the same type of men. He "does as Rome does" and he is making many friends in the United States. He has not yet ac quired his full title, estate, and posi tion in parliament but has a fortune at his disposal through the kindness of his uncle, the old Lord Lambert. "The (Continued on Fifth Page."
