SUCH COURSE BELIEVED TO BE WITHIN THE LAW_ PROPERTIES CONSIDERED FOR AMALGAMATED MERGER INCLUDE COLE RYAN AND BUTTE PRO DUCERS—LIKELY OF ADOPTION. The latest on the copper merger is given in the following from Boston: The Boston Financial News is in a position to give the latest plan for the consolidation of the Cole-Ryan and Amalgamated Copper properties. The plan has been formulated by the J. P. Morgan interests and is entirely different from any plans here tofore considered. The plan is to form a new company which will offer to buy the properties and not the shares, of the various Cole-Ryan and Amalgamated operating companies and to pay for such prop erties either with cash or stock in the new company. The properties thus far mentioned as being taken into the new company are the Anaconda, Butte & Boston, Boston & Mon tana and the Parrot. Others will doubtless be considered later such as the North Butte, Coalition and other Cole-Ryan compan ies, but nothing definite has yet been done other than to consider the selling of the Amalgamated properties to the new company. The Amalgamated Chopper company will take the pay for its properties in the shares of the new* organization, and thus it will have complete control of the new concern. By buying the properties of the different companies the old companies will be wiped out entirely and the entire group of GREAT EXHIBITION MADE BY PAOLHAN AT LOS ANGELES 20,000 PEOPLE WITNESS SUCCESSFUL FLIGHTS LOS ANGELES, Jan. 11.—Making a sudden and dramatic appearance while 20,000 spectators were watch ing the slow flight of two dirigible balloons a* Aviatlou park, this af ternoon, Louis i’auihan threw the great throng into a frenzy of en thusiasm by a spectacular flight In a Karman biplane.

Ileachy and Rnabenshue were piloting their alirigibles around the course when the daring Frenchman appeared suddenly out of a gully hid den from the view of the grandstand, circled the course three times, went out across the country, came back over the grandstand and alighted in the center of the field. In two flights he gave a re markable exhibition of control over his machine, gracefully making sharp turns, now dipping almost to the ground, again skimming the grand stand only a few feet above the heads of the spectators, ascending, de scending, and finally, approaching from the rear, the tent that houses hiB aeroplane, just clearing the top and alighting within 100 feet of its entrance.

POISONED BY WOMAN. TERRE HAUTE, Ind., Jan. 11.— Poisoned by a woman who had rob bed him of $nOU worth of jew'elry, was W. H. Helman, merchant of this city, according to the coroner. Cole-Ryan and Amalgamated properties centered in one large copper producing company. The idea of offering cash or stock in payment for the op erating concern is to avoid any objection which minority share holders may offer to the plan. The above plan may not be adopted but it seems to be the most likely one at the moment. Mr. John D. Ryan is in Butte and has not as yet considered the plan, but it may be put through without his consent should he object.

WASHINGTON, Jan. 11.—Formal statement was issued today in which the insurgents decline to be put out of the Republican party by the regu lars and announce intention to carry to a finish the fight against the speaker and the organization. The statement follows: In the effort to becloud the real isBue an unfair and malicious at tempt is being made to represent us as opposed to President Taft's ad ministration and politics. There Is not even a semblance of truth in this accusation. Without exception we are firm supporters of Republican doctrines and President Taft's admin istration. “Wo «j»o handed tnffpiher tOT ft Sift gle purpose and no other. Our sole aim as a body is to restore to the House complete power of legislation in accordance with the will of a ma jority of its members. We are striv ing to destroy the system of auto cratic control, which has reached its climax under the present speaker." The breach between the "organ ization” of the House of Representa tives and the Republican “insur gents” was widened perceptibly to day. Tonight there is every evidence that the mutually hostile acts of the last few days will continue with in creasing bitterness.

The first battle will occur over the selection of the committee by the house to inves ! tigate the Ballinger-Piuchot imbrog ' lio. BAIL REFUSED SWINDLER KING.
