efTort to raise them.

Opinion From Eminent Engineer
**Review of Week in the District
The week was more notable than its predecsesor, in ways
good, bad and indifferent. A fine jumble of varying elements
entered into the local situation, making for an interesting pe
riod. Improved weather at the latter end helped at Copper
Flat and at McGill. At both places results per day of operation
were increased. The Chainman leasers have practically got
underway with operation of that property, adding another pro
ducer at the end of the week to the camp’s list. Ely Central de
termined about where it will get the porphyry and when. Bos
ton Ely crosscut gave new and excellent signs. Ely Con. added
to the enthusiasm regarding its chances, and incidentally gave
the lime another boost. Downward revision of the stock list
threw a blanket of gloom through which but a few rays of sun
light penetrated, while new complications in the merger matter

10:30 from the main line freight

The man under arrest denies that
he is Klanjac, that he Is an Austrian

The man under arrest has only
been asked if he is Klanjac. Today
he will be given a chance to claim a
name and to prove it; also to prove
that he is a Greek, as he asserts.
Then he will have to explain why he
commenced shooting when the sher

was apparently hiding and so anxious
to escape detention that he perform
