It is announced here this morning that the five million dollars given by Andrew Carnegie to his old employes will be fol lowed up by an additional gift of twenty-five millions to be used for the erec tion of buildings and for the endowment of the proposed technical school at Pittsburg wfiich will be the finest insti-tntion of the kind in the world. Plans are already in course of preparation. The school, it is said by those who are working on the stupendous scheme, will consist of a series of model shops, in which will be taught every branch of the iron and steel trade, as" well as copper and brass working, mining, electricity, compressed air, and their manifold ramifications. It is said that every branch of manufacturing in which the metals are the primary agents and raw material will be taught there. In the shops all the most moderu apparatus will lie set up, and the enor mous works of the Carnegie interests will be a sort of auxiliary laboratory for the men so fortunate as to become students of this unequaled school. In addition to the material equipment of the shops, which will be the best that can be procured with money, the school will have an endowment so large that no charge will be made for tuition or anything else. Carnegie's idea, as expressed to friends with whom he has discussed this imperial project, is to "give the poor but worthy artisans a chance." The re quirements for admission will be rigid, brains and with his hands in order to keep his place in the school, as the number of students will necessarily be limited, and there will be a waiting list that will appal those who doubt their own capacity. But if this enormous scheme is carried out as now planned, it will mean that the United States will have a power on its side in the coming struggle for industrial supremacy that the governments of Europe cannot begin to match. . ............ Great Round Up of Wild Beasts in Arizona Special to The Herald. . YUMA, Ariz., March 15. For a long time mountain lions, bears and wolves have been raiding the stock on the big cattle ranch of Colin Campbell, in Cochise county. With 10.000 cattle on the range, the heavy loss in calves and yearlings, dragged down by the ravages of wild animals, has cut down the dividends of the stock company which stocked the range. Ijst week Charley Montgomery, famous all over Arizona as a hunter, and who was chief of scouts under Crook during the trouble with the Apaches, was engaged to exterminate the animals which had been raiding the herds. Montgomery at once engaged one nundred men of the Pima tribe and last Saturday held a big round up of ihe "varmints." Early in the morning his Indians and a score of cowboys, surrounded a district five miles square in the foot hills of the Chiricahua range and grad ually closed toward :.he center, two hundred dogs in the radeo. As they reached the center of the circle, catamounts black bears, co yotes and an occasional grizzly bear tried to break through the line, but was met by a shower of bullets. Dozens of animals perished in the attempt to escape, but two hundred others were finally cornered in a box canyon, while redskins and cowpunchers picked them off from the rocks above. There were scores of close conflicts with the enraged and frightened brutes, and in one melee, four Indians were fenifnlly mangled by a grizzly, before their shots finally finished the bear. One of the reds. Antonio Her mo. a former chief of the tribe, received fatal wounds from the claws of the big fellow. The dogs closed in on the victims and dozens of them were killed before the slaughter was complete. The final count showed 19 dead mountain lions, five grizzlies, two lynx and over 100 coyotes doubtless the biggest round up of wild animals that ever occurred in Arizona.
