A loaded freight car broke loose at Eclipse, ou the Florence and Cripple Creek railroad, and started down a steep grade toward Anaconda, says a Victor (Colo.) dispatch. Conductor Blondy, on an engine directed by Engineer Rush, undertook to capture the car to prevent a collision with a suburban train due to leave Anaconda abont the same time, bat the operator at Eclipse suo coeded in holding the passenger train as it was pulling out of Anaconda The car was overtaken four seconds from that station.

Pearson against the Great Northern Railway company, Judge Kelly of St. Paul awarded Mr. Pearson $500 on account of unpaid salary and judgment for his costs and disburse ments. Pearson sued on an alleged contract, claiming that he was employed by the railroad company to operate ooal fields in Montana and Washington, and held that he was entitled to a percentage of the value of the coal fields which he said ho had discovered. The railway company declared that the coal fields which Pearson said he had discovered were well known long before he found them, and objected to paying the roy alty demanded. The $500 allowed is for salary for the time be was engaged by the rood in making the search. Archdeacon Wilberforoe of Westmin ster started “smoking church services” recently. He invited the men who were fitting up Westminster abbey for the coronation to spare a part of their dinner hour to religion, gave each man an ounce of tobacco, and told the men to come and smoke and make them selves at home daring the service. The men were delighted by the novel propo sition and have boon assembling in the cloisters daily to the number of upward of 100. They join heartily in the hymns and Lord's prayer, occasionally taking a drink from their beer-cans, though they invariably remove their caps and pipes during prayers. In the meanwhile, the abbey is rigorously closed to the public. Id the Altar district, northern Sonora, Mexico, near Tabutama, a party of American miners headed by Charles Con O’Keefe, uu Arizona miuerul ex pert, came upon a mine dump of enor mous proportions grown entirely over with timber. Searching furthor, they found a sealed entrance to the work ings, and, breaking this down, they dis covered what was once a mine of extra ordinary size, says a Phueuix (A. T.) dispatch. Near the eutrauce was a b;g pile of silver ingots and tools. Furthor in was a number of skeletons. They partially explored the workings aud fouud millions of tons of silver ore iu sight. The mine is believed to have been worked by Toltecs or Aztecs aud closed hundreds of years ago, wheu In dians drove the race from the couutry. Henry O. Frick, the steel magnate, has deposited at the banking house of J. P. Morgan & Co. of New York what is said to be one of the most valuable pieces of paper in existence. It is a cer tificate for 100,000 shares of preferred stock iu the United States Steel corpor ation, yielding Frick dividends of $700, 000 annually. It is stated that the do posit was made for the purpose of exchanging two-fifths of the preferred stock it represents into #4,000,000 worth of bonds of the proposed new issue. The balance in the deal, #6,000,000, will be repaid to Mr. Frick in the shape of a new preferred stock certificate. J. P. Morgan, according to Londou dispatches, has practically consummated the plan to combine all the leading transatlantic steamship lines. The companies to be consolidated will, It is understood, include the American, Red Star, White Star, Dominion, Atlantio Transport and Leyland line*. Other lines may be absorbed, while it is un derstood that a “working agreement” will be reached with other transatlantic companies, including the North German Lloyd, Hamburg-American, General Transatlantic and Allan and Anchor lines. 1 IRRIGATION IN THE WEST. From tha Reno Journal. Tbia ia tbe caption of a communication from Representative Newlands which ap peared lately in the New York Times. It is an exhaustive treatise upon the gen eral subject of irrigation, its history, which dates back to the earliest period of civilization, and which is practiced to day in more than half of the world. Al though of course it was intended more especially for the information and en lightenment of Eastern readers, it con tains a great deal of matter which would be interesting to the people in the arid and semi-arid sections who have made close and intelligent study of the subject. The scope which the writer gives to the subject is broader and more elaborate than anything of the kind that we have ever seen in print, in facts, figures and accompanying comments, and will un questionably have a favorable effect upon tbe irrigation legislation now pending in Congress. In referring to the alleged danger of disastrous competition with the existing farms in the East and West, Mr. New lands says in part: “It has only to be borne in mind that the entire area capa ble of reclamation does not exceed 60, 000,000 acres, and that this area w ill only equal the area of the two States of Iowa and Illinois. If a nation of a few mil lions of people did not suffer from the development of Iowa and Illinois, how can it be contended for a moment that a country with 80,(XX),000 of people can suffer from tbe development of the arid region?" The Washington correspondent of the New York Journal says in a recent num ber of that paper: ‘‘After over a quar terof a century of aggressive campaign ing, the men of the West who have been urging government aid for the irrigat ion of the arid lands have reason to believe that their efforts have not been in vain. The Newlands irrigation bill, which passed the Senate a few weeks ago and is now before the irrigation committee of the House, was the subject of an impor tant conference at the White to-day. The conference was held at the instance of President Roosevelt. Discussion devel oped the fact that all were agreed as to the purpose to be accomplished and that the only difference was as to the details of the bill and its phraseology. Amendment to Minina I nwa Should the amendment to the United States mining statutes, introduced by Senator Kearns of Utah, pass the Sen ate it will do away with a vast amount of litigation. Tbs bill provides that the lo cator or possessor of a claim shall have the exclusive possession and ownership of all the surface thereof, and all veins or lodes therein contained within the sur face lines thereof extend vertically. Heretofore the right given the locator of a mining claim to follow the so-called apex of a vein into adjoining claims was a prolific source of litigation. ■Another Mistake. Carson Appeal: An article lias gone the rounds of the Nevada press to the effect that es-Lieutenant Governor Pou jade is running a cheap lodging house in San Francisco. This is an absurd state ment. Mr. Poujade and wife are citizens of this city, and from all indications in tend remaining here for many years to come. Mr. Poujade is interested in busi ness and from appearances he will con tinue to transact the same from the home office in this city. James Pollock and Daniel Powell of Keno have begun proceedings in bank ruptcy. Pollock’s liabilities amount to $13,000 and Powell’s to $10,054.80. The debts were contracted a number of years ago. __ ' \ \ \ Rain and »weat \ \ \ v 1 have bo effect on MtWfWni V* Mflk [UntnA ness Oil.

Richfield (Utah) Reaper: The coyotes are much more shy now than they for merly were, yet there ia an Increased number of bounty applications reported over the State and the coyote is going fast. About the time most of the trouble* some pests are killed off some unwise Legislature will repeal < he bounty and the State will again be infested. A litter of coyote pupe ia usually from eight to eleven in number, and there are always two litters each year. A female coyote •tarts breeding when a yearling and often has from twelve to eighteen litters of paps during her lifetime. No other branch of the larger mammalia increases so fast as do the coyote of the West. One pair of these animals left unmolested and allowed an unlimited food supply would easily produoean offspring of five millions daring tbeir own natural lives— usually about ten years.
