LACK OF WATER EFFECTS MINING COMPANIES OPERATING SILVER LEAD MINES IN THE COEUR D'ALENES ARE HANDICAPPED BY LOW PRESSURE IN MAINS WARDNER, Ida., Dec. 28.—The scarcity of the water supply is still greatly hindering the work «of the mines at this place. The Bunker Hill and Sullivan company, owning the water system of the town, has requested that the water be used as sparingly as possible in the homes and that none be wasted. The low pressure in the mains has caused some anxiety in case a fire should break out in town and get beyond control of the fire department. Several days in the month the Bunker Hill company has been corn j pelled to lay off all its employes in the upper workings owing to not j having sufficient water to operate the mill to its capacity, and for some time the mill has only been able to run at about half its usual rate, Several nearby properties have been compelled to close on account the shortage of water and have waited in vain for the fall rains to | replenish the supply, but the freez j up came too soon to make the sup Ply of any material benefit. The present warm rains of the past few ( days are hailed with delight here, and if kept up will mean much to the operators using water in the running of theif plants. NOT A TIME FOR DARK HORSE SENATOR SCOTT GIVES THIS AS REASON WHY REPUBLICANS WILL HARDLY TAKE UP CAN DIDACY OF GOV. HUGHES 1 WHEELING, W. Va„ Dec. 28.— Senator Scott in an interview yes terday said of the presidential can didates: I ''Mr. Cannon has the advantage j of the republican congressmen, all being warm personal friends, and ishould they go into their Individual districts and make a fight for dele gates it would make him a pretty strong candidate, and he would be hard to beat. "I would say that Taft possibly is leading at the present time, but you know he is in danger of being slaughtered in the house of his own friends, or rather in the house of Foraker's friends. "It Foraker succeeds in getting a fair share of the delegates from Ohio, It is going to be pretty hard to nominate Taft. "Fairbanks is a good, clean, strong man. and the country would make no mistake in nominating him. In my opinion he is going to show a great deal more strength when it comes to the convention than a good many people look for. "Knox is a good man; would be perfectly safe, and probably there Is no better lawyer in the United States. "Hughes, in my opinion, is not well known and I do not believe the republican party wants a 'dark horse' or waqts to fake a chance as to what the policies would be under a man like Hughes." . ■ -1 Try Th* Teller Want Ate.

The pro duce will probably be reduced 25 per cent in practically all of the' mills. Many of them will undoubt edly be in operation but four days a week during the next two months, jand others, while running six days weekly, may stop a quarter of the machinery, as that policy is advisa jble where there are contracts to be filled before March. It is said that practically all of j the New Bedford corporations have agreed to the curtailment plan and. j that mills in Manchester, N. H.,. • Lowell and other leading centers of the cotton mill industry have ac- quiesced in the arrangement. In Rhodè Island those mills not tied up- ! by contracts are understood to fa- vor a restriction of production. The j curtailment will probably affect at least 150,000 operatives. -, ...... ,,..............
