B. L. E. BALL
Last Night at Turner Hall a Big
Success and the Crowd En
joyed Themselves.
The ball of the Brotherhood of Lo -
comotive Engineers held at the Turn
er hall last night was an overwhelm
ing success That is only saying what
one must say of all their affairs for
the mere fact that a dance is under
the direction of this popular body of
men assures for it patronage and a
large degree of “go’’ which is not
the rule in this city. By 9 o’clock
there were perhaps a hundred couples
on the floor. At that hour the grand
march started on its tortuous course.
By 10 o’clock there must have been in
the neighborhood of three hundred
and fifty people in the room. The
floor committee bustled about to see
that everybody present was having
tlieir share of pleasure in the general
good time. Boyer’s excell mfc orches
tra furnished the music and so good
was it that expressions of regret at its
leader’s coming departure wore fre
quent. The hall was decorated ap
propriately. At each end of the room
was a gigantic engine headlight. A
lunch was served in the dining room
at midnight. Dancing continued un
til 3 a. m.
The commitees in charge of the
affair were John Rayburn, H. P.
Mitchell, and Harry Coates, on ar
rangements; and Gus Trochtor. E. M.
Allison and Scott McKinney on floor
and reception.
ARRESTED.
A man by the name of Marshal, was
arrested this morning in front of
Walsh’s Railroad store in the act of
, disrobing. He was in a high state of
drunkeness and very ugly in his dis
position.
When Marshal Allison undertook to
arrest him, he becamo abusive and
showed fight.
He was brought up Colorado avenue
and all the way to the city jail, kept
up a fire of Billingsgate at officers
and persons passing them on the street.
He was taken to the city jail and
thrown in a cell to sleep off his de
bauch.
Ou his person was forty dollars and
fifteen cents in money, a good watch
and some other trinket*. The man
has certificates stating that ho belongs
to several ordors. Mashal Allison let
him -deep of his drunk, and this after
noon, when representations were made
to him. Marshal Allison decided that
ho conld serve the ends of justice
just as well by permitting the man to
go home to his friends and start life
over again.
PLAN TO KIDNAP.
Winona, Minn.. March 26.—An aged
negro, J. C. Fremont, called on Con
gressman Tawney tonight and stated
’ that ho had a communication to the
effect that he had information of , r a
plan that had been made to attempt
the life of President Roosevelt on his
Western tonr. but that this had been
abandoned, and that the plotters were
now planning to capture. Secretary of
the Treasury Shaw. Secretary of War
Root, and Attorney General Knox and
carry them to the mountains to k be
held for ransom.
Fremont refused to divulge the
* source of his information hut lie in
t sisted that it was correct. Congress
- ipan places little credence in
the story, but he lias written to Sec
retary Shaw, telling him the negroes
tale.
WANTS A MEXICAN.
Alexander Read, sheriff of the coun
ty in which Santa Fe, Now Mexico is
located, wired Marshal John Allison
this morning to place under arrest Pa
blo Martinez, as he had a warrant for
him
The telegram gave no description of
s the Mexican wanted save that he was
l>ock marked and tall. Yesterday
3 Marshal Allison noticed that there
“ was a strange Mexican in the city,
but he did not know that he was
wanted. A search is being made for
the man today, but it is beileved that
he has left the city.
D. T. Clark and son Walter are mak
ing preparation* for the annual
shearing of their sheep.

SMELTER SITE.
If there is a man or woman who
' questions the fact that this city is go
ing to have a smelter, and perhaps
there are even yet some doubting
Thomases who have not had any
direct evidence of the work of build
ing, such a one should go to the site
of that institution southeast of this
city ana be convinced by seenig the
progress that has already been made
for the erection of the buildings which
are to bo auxiliary to the smelter prop
’ er. A Sentinel representative visited
, the grounds yesterday afternoon and
, was surprised at the amount of pre
liminary work that has already been
1 done on the premises.
While there has been very little ac
tual building yet completed there has
i been much grading and preliminary
, work, as there is very little else to do
until the actnal building commences.
1 some of which is already under way.
The freight depot, a neat little
structure, is nearly completed. In
connection with this there are several
store rooms, which for the present.
1 are being used as work rooms, until
these can be built. The brick is on
the gronnd for the office building,
which will contain the assayers office,
besides the private and general offices
of the company.
Excavations have been completed
for tho other bnildings, and also for
the furnaces. The latter are to bo on
tho south side of the railway siding,
while all the other buildnigs are to
be on the north side, and will at first
’ consist of but three, one largo blast
furnace whichjjwill treat the ore in
its crude state, and the other two. call
ed doubling furnaces, which refine tlie
metal after it has been separated from
the earth and other formations which
it contains.
The grade for the'sido track is al
most completed and it is a vory sub
stantial one indeed. On either side
of this grade is a ro»v of bins to re
* ceivo the ore as it is dumped from the
cars.
The narrow’gauge tracks of the smol
! fer company have been laid to several
of tho buildings, and these will bo
5 used in transferring the metal from
one point to another in the procoss of
treatment. A narrow gauge engine
will be purchased by the company, as
soon as the tonnage of the company
demands it.
1 The foundation for the large rail
-1 way sclaes has been placed and the
’ work is almost finished thereon, ready
’ for the placing of thescales. A great
deal of structural steel for tho smelter
! building itself, is ou the gronnd, and
it was stated to the reporter that
’ there are six other cars of material,
1 such as lumber, boilers, etc., now in
the yards in this city where tliev
have been for several days, waiting
to be placed on the sidetrack leading
to the smelter.
There are a number of teams work
ing on the ground, as well as a largo
1 force of men, and everything is mov
-5 ing along nicely. The management
1 of tho building and construction work
t lias the plans well arranged so that
? every day’s work adds much to the
1 progress made in the building opera
? tions. It is a short distance only' to
the smelter site and doubtless many
r will visit the grounds before many
* weeks have passed.
