The meat strike will have its in
conveniences, but they will be light
in comparison with the privations
which generally go with strikes. It
won’t be as if the purse were empty
and no substitute for meat to be had.
It is reported that the late s*~t ■
mining inspector resigned because he
could not return from Mexico to
Nevada without facing arrest for
passing some thousands of dollars
worth of fraudulent checks and some
thousands of dollars more indebted

The Commoner descends to a low
level of buncombe in an article en
titled the ‘ Full Dinner Pail,” which
Is in reality a clipped story from the
New York World in which is depicted
a heart rending tragedy of the bread
line in New York City during the re
cent blizzard. The conclusion drawn
by the Commoner is that the exist
ence of a bread line discredits the
Republican party and the claims
throughout the country of prosper
ous times. It of course does nothing
of the sort. No matter how great the
prosperity of any land or of any com
munity there are arways those who
find need of aid, with whom adversity
has dealt cruelly. Their ranks thin
but little, whether the sun shines or I
the clouds hang low. As fast as one
steps out and up another is guided
Into his place by the band of fate.
Labor union reports, employers’ re
ports and statistics gu hered by the
government departments all tell
plainly that the number of idle in
the country has fallen to toe mini
mum; that the full dinner pail prom
ised for the iaft administration has
been realized in greater degree to the
present tune than the most sanguine
entertained real hope of. Indeed, In
1907-8 prophesies of the recovery
which 1909 witnessed and which
1910 will round out with a heaping
measure, were greeted with derision
and utter unbelief by the great ma
jority of people. But those proph
esies have been more than made
good, a fact that the world is aware
of and that no political buncombe

The Ely camp goes ahead in splen
did form. The increased atcivities
! promised for it a year ago are com
ing about, and so also are the results
which were then considered as likelv
of realization. And yet the begin
ning has only been made. Every
month of the present year will wit
ness the beginning of new enter-:
prises which will claim wealth from
the ground of the camp, new wealth
to the world. Every year for many
years to come will witness steadily
expanding activities along this line.
The camp, great as it is with its six
million pounds of copper production
per month within three years after
its introduction to the world with
copper certificates of credit, is still in
its swaddling clothes. It is no more
than in its crawling age at this time;
later it will walk, and twenty-five
years from now will be in its prime,
with great achievements probably
yet beyond. Anchor with this district

will stay as long as you do and in
every human probability a great deal
longer. And there is no better anchor

Twenty thousand dollars was the
amount paid recently by the Virginia
Gold Mining Co. to Henry A. Whit
ney, of Salt Lake, for the Virginia,
Tip Top, Frank T. and Contact
claims, in the Osceola district.
The sum of $6,000 was paid by the
same company to L. C. Arnoldson for
the White Pine claim, also in the
Osceola district. Deeds covering
both transactions were filed yester
day with the county recorder.
Reports from the Virginia Gold
recently have been very good. It is
stated that a recent strike of high
grade is growing steadily as the work
is advanced and gives high promise
of making a rich producing ore body.

the recorder certiorates of labor for

coach, the fourth from the end of the
train, was the first to leave the rails.
The train was running at forty miles
an hour and the momentum carried
the car down tne hill in a terrific
plunge. About twenty-five passen
gers were in this car and it is prac
tically certain that none escaped.

passenger had stopped and struck .
out into the valley. Butler at once
left his place and started across to
ward tne man. He had gained with
in probably three-quarter of a mile
of him when the fellow took notice
and turned towards the hills. But
ler then broke into a run, drawing
his gun and signaling the man to
stop. At this juncture it is declared
by Japanese who were working along
the track, the man running toward
the hills turned and fired at the sher
iff, repeating the fire twice. The
I sheriff says he was too busy running
I and shooting to know w hether he
was fired at or not. The man says
Butler's shooting, whicn was over a
; half mile range, was very good, for
! two bullets came near his feet, while
one zipped close to his arm and an

His gun emptied and the man tn
front being evidently far the faster

best return to the siding where he
had left his coat and ammunition in
the haste of departure. Which he
i did and then w alked a couple of
miles for a horse. He got the lat
ter at the 33 ranch of H. F. Clark,
and also the assistance of Mr. Clark,
Three hours behind the fleeing man,
these two struck the trail, which the
snow made pretty plain. It took
straight up over the mountains, and
finally grew so sheer that the horses
i could not follow. Then figuring that
the man would cross over into the
I valley, his pursuers made a detour
and again caught up the trail. Here
they found where he had built a
fire and laid down for awhile, and
1 then they discovered that he had
backtracked and was evidently mak
ing toward the railroad again.
And an hour later, with their
horses spent from the trip, on which
not far from 50 miles was made, they
came upon their man sitting with
back against a rock. He, too, was
about all in from the at least 25
miles of rough country walking,
climbing and running that he had
accomplished in "getting the fresh
, air,” which he told his captors was
the object of his trip in the country.
1 He offered no resistance to arrest,
i which he had evidently anticipated,
for no papers or anything by which
he might be identified was found on
his person when search was made.
Neither did he have a gun or am
Sheriff Dutler said last night that
from descriptions given of Klonjac
he felt confident that he had the
right man. If not, however, he felt
convinced that the man under arrest
must be badly wanted for something
else, otherwise he would not have
had it in him to make the effort at
escape that he did. The man was
not handcuffed or shackled by the
sheriff last night until placed In jail.
On arrival at East Ely he was fed
at the Antler restaurant and ate rav
enously. He appears above the aver
age foreigner in intelligence and
speaks a little English, while he
seems to have very fair understand
ing of the language.
The news that the sheriff was en
gaged in a gun fight with the man
near Warm Springs came to the of
fice of the sherilf yesterday morning
about 10 o'clock in a telegram sent
by Conductor Hanlin of the main line
train, whose crew heard the shooting
as they were pulling toward Cherry
Creek. As soon as they learned of
the telegram. Deputy Sheriffs Jack
son and Jake Fulmer drove to Mc
Gill and from there took a hand car.
At Steptoe hill they met the treight,
on the caboose of which were the
sheriff, Mr. Clark and their prisoner.

Yaddo, the Saratoga home from
which Spencer Trank started on hln
recent fatal trip to New- York, is one
of the show places of the sea town.
It derives its name from the utter
ance of a little daughter of the
Trasks. When she crossed for the
first time a rustic bridge over the
picturesque sheet of water which
lies near the home, she pointed and
said: "Yaddo," which was ns near
as her baby tongue could get to the
