The copper market appears to be re
coveiing from its late period of depres
sion. Lake iDffot i held ttroDg at 1(!V
cents and a Dale at 11 cent in said to
have been made in New York IhhI week,
although the amount, date of delivery
and other particulars were uot men
tioned. The consumptive demand is re
ported laree and iucrensiujr, both for do
mestic and foreign account; at home be
cause of the revival in general business
aud the wider uses for copper in the elec
trical field; abroad because of these fac
tors and also the war preparations which
are going on nil the time in European
countries. At 11 cents per pound for
Lake copper, nearly all of the producing
mines cuo make a fair profit, while some
of the inines at this figure can pay large
dividends. Producers express a hopeful
view of the situation and look forward
to an increasing business during the
spring and summer months.
The street generally is bearish!? in
clined on l'.utte & Boston stoek since the
revelations recently made, although only
semi-otlJeially. A story has been circu
lated that the insiders' plan for the dis
posal of the Davis stock, consisting of
1)0,000 shares, included the defaulting of
the interest on the f2.ii00,000 bonds and
the foreclosure of the mortgage, takiog
the property for the bonds and wipiog
out the stock altogether. Thisplan would
be unworthy, of the management of the
Butte & Boston mine, but. would not
lack originality, it having been tried in
a number of instances with great success,
so far as the insiders wi re concerned. As
remarked in a Boston paper a few days
ago, "if the management of the Butte &
Boston mine would publish regular
monthly statements and a detailed an
nual report, the insiders might not make
quite so much money, but the stockhold
ers would lose less."
The Butte business has "queered" other
copper mining stocks to no small extent,
esecially those under the same manage
ment as toe tfutte & Boston mine, and
prices, as a rule, have sagged under a
pressure of long tock. On the other
hand, there has been u good demand for
some of the gold mining shares, which
have been strong at higher prices.
Pioneer, particularly, has been in good
request and has advanced from 4 to G.'i
(par $10). This company makes regu
lar monthly reports of its product, re
ceipts and eijK-nditures, and is fast be
coming a favorite with investors. Dur
ing the past four months the Pioneer,
with Its old stamp mill of twenty heads,
as accumulated a surplus of f 20,000.
Of this amount some $0,000 has been
appropriated to purchnsennair compres
sor and the company recently sold f 13,-
000 gold at a premium of Ji-of-1 per cent
to a local bank which had subs?rilied for
the new government bonds. The com
pany has an additional stamping plant
of forty heads under construction, which
will increaxe the receipts three-fold, while
the cost of running the same will not be
much more than at present. The third
and fourth tunnel arc encountering
some very good paving ground and are
expected to strike the rich vein within a
couple of months. The existence of this
vein has been proven, by a diamond drill,
to a depth of 500 feet and carries ore
assaying from H0 to flOO per ton,
which compares with f H er ton for the
ore which is now being taken out of the
tunnels. Bean Hater
months before the
editor and the musician were collaborat

ant Bennett of the Fortieth Wisconsin
volunteers returned to Elkhorn to open
drug store and resume his verse writ
ing. He and Mrs. Webster began in
lfr67 to work on Sunday school song
book, called 'The Signet Ring." which
was afterward published.
This period of his life is the most
precious of all his experiences to Dr.
Bennett Not long ago he told the whole
story to an interested group of listeners,
ols eyes Ailing with tears as he vindi
cated his friend from calumnies:
"Currency has been given to the
shameful story that Mr. Webster was
drunk when he wrote the musio, and
another account has it that we were both
drunk. I am thankful to do justice to
one of the noblest men that ever lived
a fino, sensitive soul, with the true
artistio feeling. Again, it has been said
that we were both infidels, and the song
the ribald jest of a carouse. As to my
religion, that is my own affair, but the
hope and longing of every immortal soul
as expressed in that song were the faith
of both of us. To both creation would
have seemed a farce if infinite love and
immortality had not overshadowed us
and promised a life of bliss beyond the
. "Mr. Webster, like many musicians,
was of an exceedingly nervous and sen
sitive nature, and subject to fits of de
pression. I knew his peculiarities well,
and when I found him given up to blue
devila, I just gave him a cheerful sony
to work on. One morning be nm into
the store and walked to the stove with
" 'What's up now, Webster?' I asked.
" "It's no matter. It will be all right
by and by. '
"The idea of the hymn came to me
like a fash of sunshine 'The Sweet By
and By.' Everything will be all right
men. ny wouldn't that make a good
" 'Maybe it would he replied gloom
ily. Turning to the desk, I wrote as
rapidly as I could. In less than half an
hour, I think, the song as it stands to
day was written. Here it is :

"In the meantime two friends, N. IL
Carswell and S. E. Bright, had coma
in. I handed the verges to Mr. Webster,
a little tremulous witb emotion. As he
read it bis eyes kindled. Stepping to
the desk, he began to jot down the
notes. He picked up his violin and
tried them. In ten minutes we four
gentlemen were singing that song. Mr.
R. R. Crosby came in, and witb tears
in his eyes said, 'Gentlemen, that hymn
is immortal.' We were all excited,
