Before tho end of this week the force
of miners employed at tho Old Domin
ion will havo been materially increased.
Superintendent R. B. Hegardt is au
thority for tho statement that between
sevcnty-flvo and ono hundred additional
men will bo put to work during tho com
ing week and from this thoro is little
doubt that tho era of curtailmont so
far as tho Old Dominion is concerned is
at an end. Tho new men will for tho
cost part bo put to work on the lower
levels of tho mine, extracting sulphide
Tor practically tho first time in the j
history of tho Old Dominion company
no shipments of ore from outsido the
Globo district arc being received at the
smelter. During tho month ending last
night approximately 2,700,000 pounds
of copper was produced, the output be-.
mg tho product of but thxoo furnaces.
Of this amount about 2,000,000 pounds
was reduced from Old Dominion ores
and this month tho proportion will bo
considerably greater on acocunt of tho
complete cessation of outsido shipments.
i otil about three mouths ago large w
spments of sulphide ore had boon re- &
c.i daily at tho smelter, consisting fc
cf onccntrates from Cananea and Naco-
r and about two cars of lump pro

Th fire in the latter has boqn the causo.

Tt-.ro is still romaininc on tho stock
i- a large quantity of Cananea con-

'- a great while to disposo of this re-

tho issue of .f0,000,000 of Pan
ama canal bomls which was be

"Bids for tho Panama bonds in
vited by the secretary's circular
wore opened this vening. There
were more than three thousand
bids and the loan was many times
oversubscribed. No complete tab
ulation has boon possible, but it
can be stated that tho average
price is well above the present
market price of tho bonds. Owing
to the large number of bids it
would be impracticable to make
tho allotment immediately, but the
secretary will bo prepared to givo
further information Monday."
Asked what was meant by 'Hlu
present market price of tho
bonds," tho secretary asked to -be
excused from boing more explicit,
'but other familiar with tho pres
ent price of .othor Panama bond
issue interproto tho words to mem
that tho successful price of the
prosont issue will bo considerably
in 'excess of 102 and possibly above
103. Among tho bidders was tho
National City bank of New Yqrk,
which submitted a number of bids
aggregating $.",000,000 at prices
ranging from 101 to 103. It is
understood that tho First National
bank of Chicago bid for a largo
amount of bonds at something in
excess of 101.

Cannot Be Saved -
JACKSON, Ca'l., November 30. Ono
of tho greatest calamities in tho annals
of this mining county occurred at tho
Fromont Consoliated mine, near Dry
town, this rifternoon. At 1 o'clock tho
first skip, 'containing thirteen men, was
lowered in the 1'rcmont shaft and, on
reaching tho 1,000-foot level, volumes
of smoke wcro encountered, showing
that the mino wag on fire. Tho skip
became jammed at this point and could
neither bo hoisted nor lowered. It is
supposed to have been thrown oft" tho
track by ono of tho men boing over,
come by smoke nnd falling against the
front wheels. Two men aboard got out
and climbed to tho surface by means of
tho laddcrway and the other eleven we.ro
in tho mino at tho last accounts. It is
believed that all havo perished. Great
volumes of smoke havo boon rising from
tho shaft over since.
An attempt was made to reach tho
imprisoned men through tho Grover
shaft sovcral hundred feet distant. The
rescuers got as far as tho 700-foot lovel
and could go no further on account of
smoke. Pour of tho imprisoned men

Stops arc boing taken to closo up tho
mino airtight, so as to extinguish tho
flames. At 10 o'clock tonight the firo
was- not burning so fiercely and somo
hope was, entertained that the minors
may havo got into tho long drift away
from tho firo and may yet bo rescued. A

minutes later. Thp.,Ycrdiet pf'tho jury

The climax in the trial was reached
yesterday morning when tho defendant
was placed, on the witness stand to tell
her 8tory;of ' the tragedy. Her direct
examination did not consume much
time, sho boing merely asked to go over
the occurrences of tho ovening of the
firo which resulted in Bertha Leo's
death. Sho said that sho was sitting
on tho porch of the house, when tho
other girl ran screaming from tho door
with her clothes in flames, and that sho
placed a quilt over her, after which
the burned woman was removed to an
other room. After that sho wont to
summon Jesse Alexander and on her
way back sho mot another colored girl,
Ella Coloman, who told her. that Bertha
Leo accused her of throwing a lamp at
her. Sho also heard tho accusation of
tho woman horself, and denied it, not
knowing why it was made.

Congress Tomorrow Clark
Has a Good Bill,
WASHINGTON, D. C, November 30.
Joseph G. Cannon of Illinois was to
night nominated by the house repub
licans for his third term as speaker of
the house and will bo elected upon tho
convening of tho house Monday. Tho
nomination was made at tho republican
caucus, attended practically by all of
tho 22G republican mombors. The cau
cus was called to order "by Representa
tive Hepburn of Iowa and within nn
hour's time tho nomination not only
of tho speaker, but of all officers of the
house, was completed and adjournment
taken. Other officors chosen wcro Alex
ander McDowell, Pennsylvania, clerk;
Frank B. Lyon, New York, doorkeeper;
Harry Casson, Massachusetts, sergeant
atjarms; Samuel W. Langum, Minne
sota, postmaster.
In his reply accepting tho nomina
tion, Cannon dealt with a number of
public questions. He justified the largo
appropriations of last congress and in
dicated very plainly his opposition to
any policy looking toward a too great
centralization in tho functions of tho
government. Tho following aro his rc
maiks: "It has boon as decade sinco tho re
publican party assumed tho responsibil
ity for legislation. -Tho American pco
plo are richer by many billions of dol
lars than they were, and their wealth
is represented by tho incomo from work
and wages is more equitably distributed
than over before. But it has been said,
'Boast not of thyself of tomorrow, for
thou knowest not what a day may bring
forth.' Wo must face tho responsibil
ity for government without regard to
tho' past. Tho recent shock to business
that arrested commerce admonishes U3
to approach tho task with soberness and
courage for wo will bo judged by their
work of tho present, not by our record
of the past.
Wants No Experiments
"By amendment and otherwiso tho
Fifty-ninth congress enacted such new
legislation which will bo" tried and test
ed. Wo are to exorcise power with
care, that it wil.bo, not for a more- exhi
bition of strength without the restraint
of caution against injustice. Including
tho permanent appropriations o the
last session congress appropriated more
than a hundred million for the fiscal
year, a startling amount in the abstract,
but owing to our enormous production,
business activity and expenditures, wo
havo kopt within the income of the gov
ernment without creating new sources
of revenue. In providing for public
service during the sixtieth congress we
should bear in mind that tho develop
ment of the country is as marvelous as
it is still in its infancy. In my judg
ment it is not wise to increase tho re
enues of the government, and neither is
it necessary -or advisable to transfer
the burdens from local and state treas
uries to tho federal treasury,, to foster-
centralizing power and responsibility
which of necessity dcvclopcs quito fast
enough. Wo have been admonished by
events that it is not time for extrava
gance or excursions into the realm of
experiments in legislation and it is my
personal judgment that wo should hold
fast to the principles laid down by- our
fathers; that .tho federal government
is ono of limited powers, but supreme
where it has jurisdiction, and that wo'
should leave to tho. people of the states
jurisdiction not granted to tho federal
government and also leave upon them
tho responsibility and burden of taxa
tion for the same."

Stolypin Flayed in Douma by
Roditcheff, Who Coins a
Historic Phrase,
Tense Atmosphere of Earlier
Doumas Restored Radical
Offers Apologies; Didn't
Mean Anything Personal.
ST. PETERSBURG, November 30.
"Stolypin necktie," the expression
used by Fedcri Roditcheff, the orator
of tho constitutional democrats in the
douma this afternoon to designate tho
summary drumhead courts martial in
stitutcd by Stolypin in August, 1900,
and decreed out of existence by tho
second douma, is the phrase on all lips "
in the capital tonight. The phrase has
already become historic and it has com
pletely blotted out the effect of minis
terial dictation on subsequent debates
and destroyed the complacency of the
conservatives, restoring the tenso at
mosphere .of earlier doumas.
Upon Stolypin, who, in company of
colleagues was sitting on the speakers'
tribune, the words fell as a thunder
bolt, recalling the most painful inci
dents of his career as premier. He
turned deathly pale, clenched the desk
and stared motionless for several min
utes at thp unprecedented storm let
loose by the reactionary deputies surg
ing past him. Finally he left tho cham
ber without uttering a word.
The Associated Press learns that to -ministers

Stolypin announced firmly his decision
to challenge Roditcheff to a duclaiid
asked Chcglovito'ff, minister of justice,
and Prince Vassilehikoff to act as his
Speaker Carried Out
The tumult caused' by Roditcheff 's
speech continued for a half hour, during
which the speaker was sovercly handled
and Jlnally carripd nwaj- bodily-' by Jiil "
supporters to" a C'oTrier Of the hall. Party
leaders then tencred Upon a long con
sultation. It .was made P'ain,.by,gthp
constitutional democrats that. BodjiclU
eff had meant no personal attack-on the
premier, but had been carried away by
his impetuosity. Roditchoff thereupon
went to the pavilion and begged Stoly
pin 's forgiveness.
After an hour's, intermission, during
which the' passions of the members sub
sided, tho session was reopened. Khom
yakoff, the president, sternly lectured '
the Rightist members and then proposed
to suspend Roditcheff from the sittings.
Later he arose and declared that ho
had no intention of offending anyone,
but would let his words appear on the
records as spoken, however. The sus
pension was voted by sixty-nine major
ity by" the OctoborisYs and members of
the Right. The constitutional denio-,
crats led by.'Mitukoff joined' in the ova
tion to testify to the douma 's high
regard for Stolypin.
