PITTSBURG. Pa.. March 15. 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
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.
