COMPANY RESPONSIBLE FOR DEATH M’GREGORJS VERDICT JURY DECLARES POWDER MAN INCOMPETENT The coroner’s Jury In the case of Hugh McGreggor, whose death fol lowed Injury at Copper Flat, return ed a verdict yesterday afternoon to effect that the unfortunate man came to his death as a result of the “ne glect and criminal carelessness of the Nevada Consolidated Copper Mining company.” The verdict was signed by all the Jurymen: W. S. Henderson, H. L. Fuller, L. C. Morgenson, George B. Hughes, George McDonald and A. A. Marshall. The Jury’s Investigations showed that McGreggor, when struck by the ilying rock which caused his fatal injuries, was walking from 1,000 to 1,200 feet from where the blast was tired. A number of witnesses were heard at the inquest. Their testimony showed that the blasting was done in constructing a piece of railroad grade and that very heavy charges were used. It was further shown that no effort was mnde to confine the scattering of the rock and dirt from the blast and that Lou De Fllppe, an Italian who did the tiring, knew but little as to the power of the blasts put in, although he has had about two years’ experience in handling powder and dynamite. Funeral services for Mr. McGreggor were held Sunday afternoon at the KoekhiU-Schallenberger hall under auspices of the Carpenters’ union and the local lodge of Odd Fellows. Rev. G. C. Hunting of St. Barthol omew’s church, delivered a sermon and the ritual of the Odd Fellows was read. The services were attend ed by more than 200 members of the 1 organizations and friends of the de . ceased who, headed by the McGill band, escorted the remains to the cemetery.

Threatening letters, demanding $8,000 in cash, hnd been received re cently by the grocery firm which oc cupied the ground floor. Col. L. G. Cannon, vice president and general manager of the Nevada Northern, who returned Saturday night from a month’s visit in New York and other eastern points, was in his offices yesterday at East Ely with plenty of enthusiasm as to the future. “I bring back no news of di rect Interest to the district at the moment,” said Mr. Cannon In re sponse to a reporter’s query, "but I can say that things In the east look exceedingly good and that they are all expecting a great year. And there is everything to indicate that such expectation is well founded. "There is much Interest in copper and copper camps, and tne Ely dis trict gets its full share of considera tion among those who keep track of the Industry. Recently the large In terest has centered in the merger matter. The consolidation of Utah Copper and Boston Con. has been very favorably received. The merger with these of Nevada Con. as you know, was voted down. However, I have reason to believe that there has been some change of sentiment in regard to the matter and it is pos sible that there (may be a reconsid eration of the stand taken. I am not at liberty to quote, but a very high power in Guggenheim affairs who was opposed to the merger of Nevada Con. now looks upon the matter In a different light and will favor the consolidation. This by reason of further study of Utah and Boston reasources than he had pre viously made. “Concerning railroad matters ( there is nothing new to be told. 1 met Frank C. Armstrong while in New York. He is looking after Mr. Thompson's interests in the new railroad promotion. I gathered from him that they were working out their plans. As to general conditions, the country at large seems very prosper ous. In the east the holiday ex penditures were the largest ever known. Everybody appeared to have plenty of money and to have no hesitation about parting with it.” L0N6 MARCH ST. PETERSBURG, Jan. 3.—In the face of a rain and snow storm today, Emperor Nicholas followed on foot the body of his grand uncle, Grand Duke Michael Nieholavich, as it was borne from the railroad sta tion a distance of three miles to the. fortress at St Peter and St. Paul. The route of march was lined on j either side by a wall of troops which j insured the emperor’s safety from terrorists, but the greater danger from the elements he made no at tempt to avoid. When he arrived at the cathedral within the fortress, the emperor and others of the royalty who accom panied him were drenched to the skin. Fear was expressed that his Majesty might suffer an attack of pneumonia froan constitutional ex posure and the requiem mass was delayed for an hour to permit of his complete change of clothing. Duriug the funeral procession the streets of the city were filled with a silent throng, but no untoward in cident occurred. STAND PAT - ON Railroad Heads Not Be lieveb to Have Altered SpecialMessage Policies WASHINGTON, Jan. 3.—Presi dent Taft had an extended confer ence Unlay with the presidents of ill of the leading railroads of the coun try, who had requested a hearing with him before his special message, dealing with Interstate Commerce law amendments, should be sent to congress. It is said that the railroad repre sentatives sought to convince the president that further legislation at this time would upset conditions in the railroad and industrial worlds, which have generally been righting themselves in the last two years. The railroad men seamed rather dejected when they left the White House and It was Inferred that their mission, so far as holding up the president’s special message was con cerned, was a failure. The president announced, after I the conference, that the special mes i sage would be ready for congress ! Wednesday at noon. The president last week received i a request for a hearing and granted ! it. He will also give a hearing to the Shippers’ association and to the Interstate Commerce commission. The latter conference will be held at the White House tomorrow morn ing.
